A ROMANCE OF THE

'?This was love! (

Onhim-gr"
In front of a large attic bonne in the county
of-, stretches a green lawn, interspersed
here and there with wild flowers of almost
every hue. From the opposite parallel of this
quadrilateral strip of land rises an inclined
plane, whose highest point reaches to the dis
tance of nearly a mile from Woodland Heights,
the home of Mary Adir. On the left Hew a
? meadow of about twenty acres, in which arc
grazing various animals of a domestic kind.
. It is a clear bright evening in May. The
gilding rays of the evening sun are shining
through the tree tops, and the waving branches
stirred by a gentle breeze, arc reflecting phan
toinatic pictures upou the counteuancc of one
deep in solitude and thought. The little birds
are singing their usual melodies before the
shades of evening conic on. ISusy crowds of
laborers from t he harvest field arc Tot timing to
their cottages, and twilight" is about to spread
her mantle over Woodland Heights.
In the veranda of this spacious building sits
j*1" being,. whose countenance is a type of

notwithstanding her h^?? PflW**
that when last heard of, he was ui tho h??pitttl.
Poor girl! innocent creature, how little ciui.
she drcuni in beholding the peeping stars that
tho star of her hope is well nigh set. Only
n few moments more and tho spell of suspense
is broken?a few momenta moro and the hope
that he is still living is realized, but the myste
ry of his absence doubly intensified.
"He o is r? letter for you, Miss Mary ! a sol
dier stopped at tLc'gate und gave it to me."
''Did you inquire his name. Caroline W asked
Mary.
"No, Madam, but he said he was from away
up about Cactus."
Glancing at the back of the envelope, Mary
rccognizod the writing, and repaired with eager
haste to her room to read it. She lighted a
candle, and after - breaking open the envelope,
read as follows:
- 4*IluTiiknronn, May 5th, 18??
"Mirh Mauy-?.
>"If ever the heart nd mind of a mortal
man, writhed in tho tbv >es of an earthly tor
ment, I am now .passing t trough the fearful or
deal. I say fearful, for, oh! I -have never
known boforo what it was to drink' of the cup
of anguish and sorrow to its very bitterest
dregs. To you, than- whom I know I have no
better and truer friend ou earth, I do not, oh!
,1 do not know, how I am to impart tho fearful
secret which weighs down and oppresses my
soul. X fcnow/, my t,nd an<^ gentle friend, that
you will call mo cruel, hcartloss, wicked, and
.everything that is unworthy; but still I know
that it will he (>nly. because 1, cannot reveal tho
docp^scatc j cause "which weighs like an incubus
upon my heart, and-which pronipts nie to the
course th'at I'compelled to pursue. I-say com
pelled, for the truest longing ofiny soul, is to' |
place myself in the giiardian care of a fate
which would hc.nioro merciful, not only to niy
own heart, but more especially to that of my
mpgt'faithful frichd. "Will you hato and scorn
me now ? * Yes! th? heart which lias loved me
no truly will change its respect into scorn, and j
its love into hatred; and yet the object of that
scorn and "that hatred, remaining forever inno-1
cent of a voluntary criuio, must try to smother
its own grief in socrct, and await in silence for
the turning of thc.whoels' of time*to wear
away the impressions which this act will en
graft so deeply upon the mind of her, whom
above all others I would to God I could spare.' |
i Oh ! it is hard Indeed for me now ' to think
1 that you will ever bate and detest nie. But
n$?let il not be so. ' Since you must remain
in ignorance, and-1 in innocence of tho cause,
i may I not beg you, my bcM friend, to evoke
your characteristic spirit of forgiveness, and
look upon me always as a fricud, who not only
canpot cputrol his own destiuy, but whom a
cruel fate has cast into, the crueibjo of its own
immutable decrees. Oh! that I could make
you believe that I am not the wretch, which
you will ever perhaps regard me. How shall
I tell you. that my little bark, which lias, for a
fow_ years niOved ' gently and sweetly by the
side of yours, has encountered its Scylla, and
been dashed upon the waters of a troubled sea?
Yes! we must be parted, we must say fa raced.
Fate decress that the bright dream of years
must vanish forever. But. ob ! may the gulf,
which shall separate us now, be filled up by the
collecting sands of life, until her? after we may
look upon it us only.a little brook, beneath
Whoso service our sorrows shall be forgotten
And buried lie. and whose bright rolling crys
tals shall lure us onward down the stream of
Jifo to that haven of eternal happiness, where
troubles and sorrows are unknown. May i/'ou
never feel the deep weight of woe, which
presses upon me?may God in mercy shower
upon you in all their fullness, the richest bless
ings of earth; may be raise up a companion
whoshall be .worthv.of ym;r ?>riccl?^ de <;%.r;4
and whose first and noblest hint shall be to
brighten and strew with roses the path-way of
I your life; and may you, my faithful friend, re
ceive in ull their plenitude, those glorious and
eternal blessings, which are rewards of immor
tal souls in Heaven.
"WALLACE Tiaillob.V
CHAR VII.
??Iler head-is bowed dbwilwnrds; so pensive her air,
As she looks nil the ground with her pule, solemn
face
It were hard to decide whether faith or despair,.
Whether anguish or trust, in her heart holds a
place."
Had a dagger pierced the heart of Mary
Adir, the shock could not have been more
acute. A death-like paleness came over her,
arid an unmerciful nervousness shook her whole
framo as she staggered to the bed, overcome b}r
a sudden anguish. Stretching her trembling
form upon it, she closed her eyes?her senses
recoiled, and she lapsed into a death-like swoon.
For half tin hour she lay motionless.
Her awakening from this rapt vision was
gradual, for the shock had been too great, the
wound too deep for her woman's heart to sub
mit passively to those decrees which, even
if she could not avoid, she, at the same time,
could not withstand.
At length she raised herself to a sitting po
sk!?u. and attempted to divine the cause of this
mysterious course on the part of one, whom
she bnu ' 'nvr 1,at* r,UUB0 to tumbt be!oro
Could it be that he inj doooivoti "as it
possible that the heart which hau oncc l>r?
fessed to beat in tenderness for her, that had
wooed her in tho name of sincerity and truth,
bad proved false, or had some untoward acci
dent happened to preclude the propriety of bis
return?
These/ with similar queries, only produced
increased mystification in her attempts to solve
them.
Little did she dream. that this letter was a
forgery, and.the subtlo production of one who
bad long coveted her charms. Still less would
have suspected the evil and dissimulating gen
ius of Tom Williland. Indeed it ira . evil
genius, which hnd paved the way for tin !on
suvunation of this design,
Tom Williland was a man of polished social
at] tinments, and possessed an effective man
ne, of ingratiating himself in the good opinion
?f noarly every one he met. lie had long
loved Mary Adir; but time had never afforded
him an opportunity of telling her so. A plan
presents itself to his conception tit last. Wal
lace. Timmel is wounded, and perhaps doatl.
This Mary docs not know, and if lie dies, per
adventuro sbo will never hear of it. "To win
her L must estrange her?I'll do the writing
and let her draw tho inference?mystery in the
matter will bo the. secret of success."
After concluding the.se? soliloquies, he drew
front. his pocket an autograph letter of- Wal
lace^$Cimrod, nnd after a? fetf days' practice,
succeeded, in . counterfeiting tho . hand-so per
fectly, that it would require the discerning eye
of ah ox pert, to detect the difference. Stimu
lates Wien .by the evil audacity of his nature,
in a^fow miiiutcs he' indited the preceding let
ter, knowing that its reception would sink an
innocent heart into an. abyss of grief, yet hop
ing too, that its , effect would be for himself,
the harbinger of ultimate sueccss. * * *
o weeks elapsed, aud Tom Williland re
solved to see what effect his letter had pro
duced upon Mary Adir.
He found her in tho neat and handsomely
furnished parlor of Woodland Ileigl
Withip the spacious hall, vases cf deciduous
flowers ornamented the mautlc-piccc?fine old
paiutiugs lined the walls?long white curtains
hung down front their gilded cornices?a niar
bloitopped table, upon which wcro placed
daguerreotypes of the family connections, occu
pied the ceuire??sofetts of the most approved
order rested on cither side of the heart, while
I ? . '
a p;ano stood on the left of the door.
During the interim between the reception pi
tho ^forged letter and Will Hand's visit, Mary
had remained the victim of abstraction'. She
talked, walked, and performed everything me
chanically?opposed nothing?acquiesced in
everything, and gave her assent to what was
even diametrically contrary to her opinion.
Her,very soul was wrapt up in abstraction, and
her ever}- thought seemed to run in the wake
of her absorbing misery.
In this.condition, Williland did not find it a
difficult matter to gain a tacit conquest over
her subdued nature. Having prepared a de
claration of love, he resolved to try its virtue,
and the result was,that, in two weeks from thu
reception of fhc forged letter, wc fiud- Tout
Willilnnd and Mar}' Adit engaged?an engage
"mcnt on the one side real?on the other merely
passive. Like many other rivals have done, so
did Williland?to subtlety and forgery, ho
owed his success?the engagement was nothing
more than a theft?he had prosecuted his .suit,
when determination in the heart of Mary Adir
Vpp^ a,--blauk?he had obtained hy..force a?.;d in
trigue, the hand without the;hcart,^ But ho was
j$tisfied;^. -(Kilwaa readied, dnd-he .would,
niarry her in spifce'of everything. ' ' ?

LITERARY.
[ron tiik ouAMi&hrttu saw's.]
A Life Picture.
While hinking over the morning' papers, my
eyes fell upon, a paragraph announcing the de
parture of n steamer, and a name in the list of
passengers arrested my attention; Immediately
thought was busy, and by the subtle power of
association, link after link, of a broken, chain
seemed to pass in review, and fancy paints
musingly mauy?aieture.s of days that are no
more. Memory turns to a fair May morning
in the long ago, when a bevy of school-girls
met to elect a queen; and of the number one
was chosen?my sweet Mabel ! I fcocm to sec !
her now, her fair face covered with blushes, as
half regretting that she had been preferred to
others, she laid a little hand liken rose leaf upon
the cheeks of a rival candidate and whispered I
'?Carrie, you will be crowner!" How beauti
ful she wus ! The soil eyes were full of liquid
light,?the cheek's were alternately pale, then
tinged with the faint rosy hue of sea-shells,
and the words came soft and low from the parted
lips. On that festal eve she was crowned Queen
of May and queen too of his heart whose pres
ence gave the light to her eyes nnd the rose to
her cheeks.
' Poor child ! over the heart, which then throb
bed almost painfully with excess of happiness,
has since swopt thqjfull tide of sorrow. It is
?nlv the olll vhl story?hands which should
have been united, clasped Other hands aud
each vowed bcfoVc God's altar to love :*nd
honor other names. You should have sccii
white lips and nervous agitation, as the benuti
girl who was his wife laid her hand upon his
arm in trusting confidence. You should have
seen bow proudly Mabul bore herself j still
queen of many hearts, sought after, petted.,
worshipped by seme, right regally she ruled.
But her heart was steeled, aud the beautiful
confidence of her nature gave place to an
artificial manner, and an utter wan.l of faith
in all. "Tell me not of love" she said to one
who remarked upon the homage offered her,
?'there is but one word to express all tho love
this world can afford, and that one word is
interest." Hear her words in an hour of con
fidence when old memories had melted her
proud wordly heart, and the trammels of fash
ion tell like unholy robes away.
Mabel, the pet of a social circle which would
have showered (lowers upon her path, sittiug
at twilight in a darkened room, 'and bonding
over a small casket in which were ouly a low
'oaves and a withered rose. "Foi'give this
weakness, but 'tis only a year, one little year
sinco then and now, one year between my happy '
girldhood and this heartless, hollow life. Ap
ple? of Sodom are all the phantom pleasure*?
which 1 follow so assiduouidyv?fair to tho sight
but ashes at the core?and this foso Js all ihat
remains tome of the happiness then mine^let'
mcbe a child once more?for one hour .throw
off this icy,thrall. I am tirdd of.actiug, tired,
of seeming gay when Iarii not, tired of hiding
from curious eyes the grave where myMafit
happiness lies, tired of life." Tears stained
her cheeks, her Blender' form quivered with
emotion-?but another hour sees her gayest of
the gay, tho centre of an onchantcd throng,
and her voice ringing in tones which mocked
the pain within.
"Ah blame us women nob if some nppear ?
Top cold at times, nnd some too gay and light,:
Some griefs gnaw deep, some woes are hard to
bear;
Who knows the past ? and who can judge us
right?"
Never were there words more true than those
which.declare that, whilo.love is an.episode.in
the life of man, it is woman's whole history.
Outside ??f the oirclc of the affections, her life
is either a giddy wh^rl of fashionable follies, or
a lifeless and dreary routine of duties.
Mabel presides with dignity aud grace oyor
her elegant home, her husband's friends arc"
always greeted with quiet case, and hosptfably
entertained. Those who note the air of luxurious j
ease which seems to pervade her home,?bopks,
music, pictures, bijoutrio from foreign lands,
which alniost cumber the npartmcnts?perhaps
go away dissatisfied with their humble homes, i
aud think how happy is tho lot which has fallen
to the wife of the Hon.-; they can not
see beneath the surface. She told him all;
and resolutely took up the burden of wedded
indifference. Her husband has ceased to hopol
ever to warm into gladness the smiles that now
seem, frozen on her lips. Ho is a successful
man of theVorld, and she the elegant woman
who is tho ornament of his house, tpo proud
i and stately now for any to approach the inner
shrine; on the bridal eve she gave to the flames
the casket aud the rose,?Ah! verily in the
heariVr"it is not always May." .

The Southern Relief Association.
This Association which has its headquarters
in the City of New York, is laboring untiring
ly in the charitable work it has undertaken,
and through its instrur. cntality thousands of
homes in the South have already been blessed.
There is no dimunitiou of intorest displayed by
its charitable founders aud members, and,, by
the providenqe of (.od, we dare hope that the
organization will be successful ?his summer in
relieving much of the distress which prevails
iu our impoverished land.
Below, is a list of Clergymen in this' State,
j to whom, as its Agents, funds to the . amount
stated, have been sent to this date, to be used
?in relieving the wants'of the poor. The sysr
tem of distribution adopted, has been, to obtain
the names of well known Clergymen in the des^
titutc districts, and for the Treasurer of the
Association to draw his checks on his bank in
New York, for an ainouut designated by the
Disbursing Committee, payable in the name of,
Aud only to the order, of the Clergyman, who
was to distribute the fund, and these checks
were sent by mail to the persons named there
in. Receipts and accounts have come to hand
from nearly all of these gcntlomcn, aud thoy
have promptly and faithfully discharged the
trust.
This statement does not include the money
expended in New York for the purchase and
shipment of corn, by the Committee appointed
for that purpose; that will appear in the final
account to tho members of tho Association.
