jCONCIiTOE?.l
I found him in a splendidly ap?
pointed house, in a fashionable
neighborhood, a shrivelled, palsied
oldman, an invalid chained to his
seat by his dressing-room fire, while
his gay wife fluttered abroad, and
scattered the money he had, hoarded
so grimly. The poor wretch was glad
to see me. When I had talked to
him awhile I found that there was 1
not a pauper in the streets more utter?
ly friendless than he. He spent his
days in a handsome jail, and my lady
was os flinty-hearted a keeper as ever
turned key on a felon.
Sitting over his fire, with n lamp
shaded to so dim a light that we
scarcely could see one another's faces,
while the carriages rolled past tinder
the windows, and echoes of thunder?
ing knocks at gay hall doors reached
us, he told me the secrets of lils life
Rince we last had met.
I think it was because I saw death
plainly written in his miserable face
that I listened so tolerantly to his
whimpering complaints of Lady
Humphrey. Her ill-treatment of him,
which he cursed so bitterly, dated
back to the day after their marriage,
when he discovered that, instead of
allying himself with enormous wealth,
he hod manged a penniless adven?
turess, who was deep in avery slough
of debt, and existing upon the brink
of exposure and ruin. Never had
there been a day of domestic peace
between them. She hod treated him
like a prisoner from the first, taken
possession of his money and his keys,
and even coiTupted faithful Jacko,
whom she had pressed into her ser?
vice. She spout a gay life abroad,
wliile ho poor, creature, could hardly
crawl across his chamber alone. He
was savagely jealous of tho people
amongst whom she spent her time,
the friends and admirers who loung?
ed about the drawing-room ; the let?
ters and presents she received tor?
mented him. Thero was a certain
casket, it seemed, which she paraded
before his eyes, but of which lie had
never seen tho key. And the poor
wretch, brooding in his solitude,
panted for a view of the interior of
that casket, as though his very life
depended on what it might contain.
I sat with him late that night; I
promised to come back and see him
again, and I did so, always at night,
and invariably finding Lucretia from
home. In truth, I did not want to
see lier. The more I heard of her
doings, tho more horribly strong
grew a doubt; which had risen within
me on the night of my first conver?
sation with Giles Humphrey. It
clung to me night and day, aud so
nearly did it approach conviction at
times, that it had like to drive me
insane.
I ventured to say to my uncle one
evening:
"Could it have possible that it was
Lady Fitzgibbon who committed the
robbery at liallyhuckamore on that
memorable Christmas eve?"
But he stared at mo in amazement,
and said stupidly
"Wliy, don't you remember, it was
the little O'Shanghnessy who did
that piece of business? She told ou
herself by dropping a bracelet on tho
step of her door. Little good her ill
gotten gains have done her, I hear,
for tho old father died wretched!v.
the barrack of a castle is pi ven up to
the rats, and the wench herself is
drifting about, the devil knows
where!"
Bo it was no use talking in this way
to Giles Humphrey. Yet I came to
see him again and again, hanging
about him in the vague hopo that
something might some day arise be?
tween him and his wife which might
chance to bring relief to my unhappy
state of mind. How bitterlv did I
nojw regret tiiat the matter - of the
robbery had not been more closely
investigated at the time that it oc?
curred! Vain regrets at the end of
five weary years! . .
One evening Lyren* to visit Culos
Humphrey, illy lady was at the
opera, the servant told me. Going tip
stairs I found my uncle, as usual,
alone, but chuckling in ecstacies of
ferociousdelight. He dangled a bunch
o| keys before jns eyes.
V nepliewr* he said, "I have
got her keys! If she is cunning, I
am cunning. If she has robbed mo,
I will rob her. Ha, ha, ha! Lend me
your arm till I hobblo to yonder
closet of hers and seo what my lady
keeps iu her casket."
I tried to prevent him, but I might
as well have tried to hold fire in my
hands. He would have crawled
across the room on all fours if I had
not assisted him. Ho found the
casket, fitted with a key, and opened
it. The first thing that met my oyes
was a bracelet that I know too well.
"This," said I, taking it up, "is
the memorable bracelet that was
found on the door-step?"
Ho took it from me, looking stupid?
ly puzzled.
"No," said ho, "she had ou that
bracelet to-night. How is this?"
"Stop!" cried I; "did yon not tell
mc that a fellow of that bracelet had
been stolen ; also a chain of pearls?"
I went on, diving further into the
recesses of the casket, and drawing
out each trinket a3 I named it. 4 'Also
a diamond necklace! Giles Hum?
phrey, how did these come into your
wife's possession?"
His jaw dropped, and he stared
blankly before him.
"By heavens, you are right!" he
mumbled. "Little O'Shaughnessy
was wronged. My lady has been the
traitor all through!"
I cannot tell you what I thought,
nor describe the mixturo of ecstacj
and agony that racked nie for the
next few moments. 1 was roused
from my revery by a shriek from
Giles Humphrey. He had found
some letters for which it seems he
had been looking, and he was foam?
ing at tho mouth.
At the same moment that 1 heard
his shriek, there was a sound in
the adjoining chamber; immediately
tho door flew open, and Lady Hum
? phrey herself appeared.
It was the first time I had seen her
face to face since the olden times.
She was regally dressed, and hand?
somer than ever, but with a coarser,
bolder beauty. She had just return?
ed from tiio opora. So intensely in?
terested had we been in our occupa?
tion, that wo had not heard the stop?
ping of the carriage, nor the knock at
the hall door. What she might have
said, or what she might have done, I
know not, but tho frown had not
timo to darken on her face, before
j her miserable husband staggered to?
wards her, flung the crumpled letter,
which he held, in her face, and foll
down at her feet in a lit.
I lifted him upon his bed, and,
ringing loudly, despatched a messen?
ger for a doctor. Then the wicked
wife and I stood lookingat oneanothei
across the dying man, whilst we
chafed his hands, and did what we
could to help him. Even at that
moment I could not refrain from ac?
cusing her. Sho saw tho jewels lying
scatterod on the floor, and was pro
pared for au attack.
"Lady Humphrey," I said, "in
thc name of Heaven, and in thc
presence of death, I conjure you tc
tell me truly if it were you who com
mittod the robbery at Ballyhucka
more Hall five years ago?"
"Ay," said she, hardly, lookinp
straight at me across tho bed. "Ii
was I who did it, certainly. If 3-01
had had the sense to ask me th?
question four years ago, after mj
marriage with him," indicating hoi
prostrate husband, "I should havi
told you tho truth as freely as I tel
it to you now .1 wanted money a
that time, and I took it."
"And threw the blame upoi
another?" I said.
She shrugged her shoulders. "Om
must do something," she said. "I
would have been inconvenient to nv
just then to have had it known."
"But iu tho name of Heaven," '.
said, "explain. Was it you who cou
ferred with Jacko in the passage
Then the black gown-tho pocket
handkerchief-?"
Sho lifted her eyebrows, and smile?
in derision.
"Fool! "she said. "As if one womal
could not imitate another's dress fo
five minutes if it suited her purpos
to do so. As if ono woman could 110
pick up another's pocket-handkei
chief and drop it agaiu if she st
fancied!"
My story. Tom, is nearly ende
now. It only romains for me to te!
you how I sought for Peg, and hoi
1 found her. For a whole year
searched in vain, discovering ri
clew to her whereabouts. Cast!
Shanghnessy was deserted, and n
one knew whether Sir Pierce's daugl
ter was living or demi. The poe
people round her old home erie
when they spoke of her, but oui
knew she had gone "abroad." Ii
formation bitterly vagne. "Abroad
might mean anywhere over the wid<
wide world.
? Tho December of the year of ni
search I spent in Paris, wanderin
day and night through its opt
streets and hidden purlieus, seekir
eagerly for a glimpse of that one fa?
which my eyes yearned to behold,
had, somehow, got a fancy that 1
Paris I should lind her; and 111 Par
I searched with unflagging energ;
early find hite, for three long, dreary
weeks. Ai lost, when I thought I
was known in every street and alley,
and knew every face I met, off by
heart, the" hopeful spirit fell away
within me, and I gave up the struggle
'tn despair.
Very sorrowful I was, Tom, walking
along the streets on Christmas eve.
Coming to my hotel just at twilight,
I saw the bright glow of a fire shining
cheerily in oue of tho windows of a
large old-fashioned house quite close
to my habitation.
Trees surrounded this old house,
and gave it an appearance of retire?
ment, though the window of which I
speak looked out upon the road. I
wonder what it was that impelled me
to cross over and read upon a brass
plate by the lamp-light an announce
that this was an establishment for tho
education of "Jeunes demoiselles?"
I wonder what it was that impelled
me afterwards to look in at that win?
dow, and soe Peg sitting at tho lire
in a cosey little room all alone? She
was staring very thoughtfully at the
flames, as if looking at past Christ?
mas eves between tho bars. Of
course Peg was a teacher in this I
school, and I had walked up and
down before her door every miserable
day for thc past threo weeks. Of
course I knocked at the door, and
startled her reveries by introducing
myself. Ay, there she was indeed,
my very own little Peg, only paler
and thinner, aud sadder and sweeter
looking.
You may imagino the rest, O Tom !
knowing as you do that little Peg is
Mrs. Humphrey. I did not deserve ;
it, but I was forgiven.
Giles Humphrey, you know, isdead, !
aud his wife still contrives to live in j
splendor. She shuns us and we shun
her. When, dear Tom, shall we see ?
you at Ballyhuckamore again?
A I.clin ?o Ulli Arp.
Pomeroy, of tho La Crosse (Wis?
consin) Democrat, has addressed tho
following letter to Bill Arp, down in
Georgia:
1 ?ill, there never was so ungrateful
;i j ? opie as you Southern gentlemen
ai r and now after all has been done
for you, to seo letters written by you ;
so full of insinuations, is too much.
The fault of all this lies with you.
Wern't you folks most dogoned I
wicked before the war? Honest In?
dian, now. Bill! Didn't you get
proud, and is not pride a sin? And
didn't you own negroes down there,
aud larrup them continually to raise
cotton for New England nabobs to
spin-sugar to put in our coffee, rice
to eat in our puddings, aud tobacco
to chew and squirt over meeting?
house floors? And didn't you have
botter houses, better clothes and bet?
ter horses, liner grounds, better fur?
niture andmore lund than we had?
We are all Christians in the North, j
We felt that all these line things was I
dragging your souls down to hell, j
We didn't want you to rest in brim- j
stone, being in torment, so wo tried
to corro? you in Abraham's bosom.
Abraham was a great and good man,
who died some time since, as we read
of somewhere.
And thou, Bill, you kept your nig?
gers too fat; our factory operatives
grew jealous. And our girls went
down thcro to teach your girls some?
thing, and fell in love with your boys,
and forgot to come home. We felt
that you were wicked. We didn't
want you to go to hell. All the line
things you had were leading you
away from salvation, so we wont and
sent Butler, and Curtis, and Banks,
and Washburn, and Steele, and Ho
vey, and Prentice, andliurlbut, and
several of tho elect of our Christian
Churches down there to win you out
of thc jaws of hell by withdrawing
your fine furniture, such :is pianos,
books, pictures, rosewood bedsteads,
marble tables, silver ware, horses,
cotton and all such plunder to a place J
ol' safety.
You were wrong to engage in war
very wrong to do that thing. New
England alone could conquer you.
Why, Bill, if you had a billion of mil?
lion of dollars, and enough nice fur- !
nitnre to furnish all of the houses in
the country, New England could
steal it in four years; and if New I
England Abolitionists could not. the 1
Kansas saints and Western children |
of Christian Abolitionists could.
Hnvn't wo prayed for you in nearly
all our churches? And havn't wo ?
told you bettor? You wanted to get I
out of the Union! Ah, Bill, States
once in can never get ont! This is ?
what we always told you. All these j
friends of the great martyr told you j
so. We wanted to keep you in. We
fought you at Antietam, Pea Ridge,
Gettysburg, Shiloh, Mobile, Port
Donelson, and the devil only knows J
where, to keep you in the Union. ?
And then we sent Christian mission?
aries down there, Bill, to rescue your
valuables aud remove them North for
safety, you know? And wc burnt
down ye mr houses, and wo took what
food your wives and children liad,
and we sent your cotton to market
for you, you know, Bill! And we
sent 3,000,000 of men to war to keep
you dumed fellers in this happy
Union.
God only knows how many of you
folks we killed, for one Northern
man was always good for live South?
ern men, to say nothing of mules,
niggers and keepsakes. And, Bill,
wo have stepped into some little debt
on your account. You see, Bill,
cotton was too cheap. Tobacco was
too cheap. Bice was too cheap.
Sugar was lou cheap. Gold and silver
were too cheap. Happiness was toi?
cheap. Our national debt was too
small. It was costing you too much
to keep that negro boarding-home of
yours, BO we remedied that by killing
?our negroes or giving them thc
onelit of liberty, rags, old bones
and Abolitionism. And wc made
?our cotton more valuable. And,
lill, we enhanced the price or every?
thing for you, and made a demand
for carpenters and '?ouse-builders
down there.
Didnt Curtis save your cotton?
Didn't Butler save your gold and
protect your women? And didn't
Banks save the lied River property?
And didn't 218 of our generals get as
rich as mud from finding things your
folks liad lost? And is not there
houseful af tar houseful of keepsakes
up North, picked up in the woods
and wood-piles by our army chap?
lains aud our moral boys, while you
were trying to kill those of our folks
who wanted to visit you and keep
your souls from hell?
Bill, you are ungrateful. And then
didn't wo keep this war up till the
States were all back in the Union?
Aud didn't we go to war and keep
your dogoned States from going out
of tho Union? And didn't you want
to get out of tho Union? And didn't
we act magnanimous and, soon as
the war was over, unite in saying you
were out of the Union ? Really, Bill,
it seems as if you had it all your own
way! This war had proved a success.
A brilliant success. We wore bound
to push it through in ninety days,
and we should but for your stubborn?
ness. AU wo wanted was your nig?
gers, your cotton, mules, furniture,
silver ware, and such old tricks, which j
you folks could buy better than we j
could, for you had moro money! It
was wrong to keep slaves. Bill, but it j
was not wrong to steal. Tliis war
was to preserve tho Union. Every?
body said so. The Union has been
preserved-so much for us. .Yow,
brethren, let usjiray!
Your States are kept out of the
Union, which is still preserved! You
wanted reconstruction. We'll recon?
struct you! Your folks aro verv
wicked. Bill. God punishes wicked?
ness. Clod's agents live in the North
exclusively. Bill! And we'll let yon
back in the Union, which hus been
preserved, when we get ready. First ,
you must hunt up the balance of your
property and give it to some of om?
irent and good agents or generals.
Then you must move out of your
houses, that is, what are left, and let
tho niggers in. And you must give
the niggers your plantations. And,
Bill, you must give them all your pro?
perty, and thou support the innocent
cause of the lato war by manual la?
bor. And you must let the niggers
vote, for they are wanted for Repub?
lican Congressmen, Senators and
sieh. And you must ignore your per?
sonal and war debts, and not pay
them upon the basis of honor. And
you must help us pay for licking you. j
And, ore you ?lo this, you must have \
all your property taken from 3'ou, so ,
it will be easy. We are a just, ami
magnanimous people in the North!
We are liberal and brotherly. Wc !
want peace and harmony!
THE ITALIAN MAUXAII.T.ATSE. - The j
following is a literal translation of
the famous Italian war hymn just
composed in Italy by M. Brofferio, at
tho request of the Minister of War,
and sung on every popular occasion
in Italy:
"Lot the bright Hash of thc sword
awake the throne and tho people.
Italians! to tho battle-field! Your
mother country calls you! Form
j'our battalions to the roar of the can?
non, helmet on head, and steel in
hand. Long livo the King of the
Alps to the sea; of the Po to the
Ticino; e>f the soil of Sicily to tho
land of Tuscany! Arise, oh Latin
people! Arise and conquer! It is
God who wills it."
