It ia not each day that a warrior's might

It is the privilege of old romancers
and of certain modern novelists to
eommence their works with a descrip?
tion of scenery: One voluminous
and popular author, who has extract?
ed more "light reading" from the dry
pages of history than any of his co
temporaries, invariably introduced
into his first chapter two knights on
horse-back, a setting sun ominous of
rain, and a mountainous country,
"with a lake in its bosom. " We will
not exact from our reader's imagina?
tion any such exalted flights as these.
We will only entreat that courteous
individual to fancy an arohduchesss
in a garden-an. archduchess, we re?
peat, in a garden. Pleasant subjects,
both, and requiring no great mental
exertion to contemplate. The ques?
tion is simply this-what sort of an
archduchess^ and what sort of a gar?
den ? Well, it is easier to desoribe
the setting than the gem, the frame
than the picture, the landscape than
the sunshine. ' Perhaps we hod better
begin with the garden.
A square of short, much-trodden
turf , on which the daisies are already
beginning to droop their modest
heads and shut up for the night; a
few flower-beds ranged with mathe?
matical, or rather say with militAry,
precision, and containing plenty of
roses, stocks, and such commoner
flowers, ndne of which haveyetfeome
into bloom, for it is spring-time still,
Three high, close-cut beechen'hedgea
in the most tender verdure, yet im
. perviouB BS the walls of a palace, and
on tho fourth side, where to secure
uninterrupted privacy another hedge
ought to rise, a murmuring brook, .
"That to the sleeping woods all night
? Singofch its quiet tune,"
and beyond that a fair expanse of
meadows sloping away to tho dark
pino forest, above which the evening
star glitters like a silver lamp out oi
the pale serene sky. The place is,
indeed, retired, though small. ? No?
thing overlooks it except one tall-row
of poplars, whispering and quivering
in the light air that wafts with it thc
sound of vespers on the ear of th?
only occupant of the garden-th(
Again we must entreat tho reader'i
forbearance, and request an utter re
pudiation of all preconceived notion
of an archduchess-an archduchess

where Austrian archduchesses ari
always represented as foolish, full
grown, full-blown blondes, makini
the most of their red cheeks and thci
white bosoms, and their general va
caney of countenance and pointless
ness of demeanor.
No; our archduchess is of a diffei
ent pattern altogether. As she step
pensively along the grass alloy bi
tween the flower-beds, -would that w
could sit down and sketch her in lift
like chalks and crayons and. coloi
rather than in the dull outline c
mere pen and ink. She is a youn
queenly woman of some twenty sun
mers. Her very walk is majestic i
its feminine grace, and the flowin
lines of noble figure, with its rounde
symmetry of limb, aro well in obi
racter with the stately pose of a hec
that would adorn a diadem, and a ful
white neck and bosom, against whh
the royal ermine itself loses its purit
Even the very action of hor shape

rious wilfulness, a certain playf
impatience, less tho result of hi(
birth than conscious beauty; f
beauty, indeed, sho possesses, wi
all her dignity, of the most woman
and most attractive kind. Tho ft
tures are moro of the Norman th

ferred by those arched eye-brov

towards the rivulet, ber color is usu?

wbm?n-pride on which women so
pique themselves, and thinks she is
possessed of a groat deal moro than
she really has. * -Her; dress-but here
we honestly confess ourselves at fault.
With no feminine assistance at hand,
wo dare not enter on tho details of a
lady's toilette in tho days of which
we write, as now, a matter of pro?
found-science and elaborate ort. It
is sufficient to observe that more than
one gallant about her father's court
had, that .afternoon, pronounced it'
the most becoming he had ever-seen;
and that although it was a favorite
costume of her own, or she would
scarcely have worn it on tho present
occasion, sho had, this evening, for
the first time, certain misgivings as
to Its attractions and her general ap
earance.' She must, however, have
een a good deal preoccupied, for
she scarce gave more than a passing
thought to this uncomfortable con?
Bright and fair as the evening star
above her, she walked down to the
murmuring rivulet, and her cheek
grew yet paler, and her head drooped
more and more, as she watched the
passing stream. Presently, she started
and the blood mounted to her brow,
for a bunch of violets,' 'floating down
the eddying water, came ashore at her
very feet. She stooped to pick them
np, with a bri ghi smile, ;.fmd, wring?
ing the wet away, hid them tenderly
in her bosom; then, with quickened
steps and agitated gestures, hurried
from the garden, and was soon across
tho adjacent'meadows, and was lost .
in the gloom of tho neighboring pine?
forest. f . ..'.', . j , ?j

Chroetildo of Borgan dy, wife' of
Clovis, the first King of 1 rance, hied
heyjaway. to n lone spot in tho depths
of the pine-forest, where > a, ' certain
spring, being Indeed the very source
and origin of tho stream that flowed
by her garden, bubbled up cloar and
cold from its surrounding moss.
. It !did not, however, appear that ?
the oryBtal Water was tho attraction
which drew her to this4*sylvan haunt.
She stopped indeed at the spring, but
it was to look and listen, rather- than
to stoop and drink; and she needed
not to look nor listen long.
There glides a eteP through tho foliago
And her cheek grows pale and her heart ?
Thore whispers a voice through tho rus?

A moment more, and they shall meet

"My angel Clothilde, how good of
youl" said a fond, frank voice, and a
manly head bent down towards the
hand he had imprisoned in both his
own, whilst she, woman-like,m must
needs exclaim, in the accents "of the
greatest astonishment, "Count Karl!
and here! how often havo I told you
not to come?"
It would scarcely tend to elucidate
the thread of our narrative were we
to detail circumstantially tho succeed?
ing conversation. Our own impres?
sion is that much of it was carried'on
in dumb show; and we are of opinion
that a dialogue between a lady and
gentleman who met accidentally twice
or thrice a week nt a f ouutain by star?
light was not more likely in tho fif?
teenth century thau at present to be
of a terse aud sparkling character,
alive with point, rejoinder and re?
But it is n?cessary to account for
the intrusion of the youug gentleman
whom tho archduchess addressed as
Count Karl, in that lady's favorite
haunt-au intrusion which seemed to
create so much astonishment as to
leave no room for indignation. How
forgiving women are, to bo sure! how
meek and patient of compulsion,
when force and inclination point in
the same direction! Pliant as the
willow, if you only bend them with
tho grain; try them against it, how?
ever, and seo how soon they will
Count Karl of the Fen, then, was
ono of tho sprightliest young noble?
men at the court of Maximilian I, a
far-seeing and rightly-judging Empe?
ror of Austria, who, with that keen
eye to his own interests which marks
tho successful mau, had married
Mary of Burgundy, daughter of
Charles tho Bold, the richest heiress
in Europe, and a personable lady
enough into the bargain. Like his
son, Phdip tho Fair-who followed
the paternal precept in espousing
another heiress, Jean of Arragon
Maximilian adopted a matter-of-fact
and practical view of tho holy state,
such as moots with the cordial ap?
proval of "parents and gnardiuns,"
and only entails upon society the
bitterest of. all the curses with which
uutivro takes core to avenge herself
on those who rebel against her lawB.
Of course, ho looked to ?i wealthy'
match for Clothilde, the pearl of all
his handsome children.
. Maidens .of twenty, however, are
apt to view these -^natters in a differ?
ent light from their sires. A sc or o of
years later, when her heart is hard?
ened and her good sense developed,
the prudent matron can ' scarcely
believe she could ever feel like "miss
ip her teens," Women exhaust their
affections faster than men, and con?
sequently are less hampered with
them in advanced life. Herein they
show their accustomed tact; a doting
groy-beard may bo a pitiable sight
enough, but a romantic old woman is
as ridiculous an anomaly as a cow in
a gallop. Nevertheless, the young
ones can bo as wilful as you please..
Clothilde) could not be brought to:
see the merit . of ti suitor whom her
father especially favored, simply, it
Would appear, 'because Maximilian
did favor him", and .because he "'was
the wealthiest and most sumptuous
noble about the court. And yet Otto
of AlsnthV, Landgrave of .Ehenheim,
was a gallant well calculated to_mako
wild work in the female bosom! He
was* in the prime of life, exceedingly
good-looking, with a certain air of
conscious superiority and noncha
lence, which makes so much way in a
woman's good graces. Indifference,
you see, interests them, piques them, '
raises the combative principle, of
which they' possess a considerable
share, and they must' fathom the
mystery, must conquer or die. He
had a high reputation, too, as a war?
rior; had held the lists in Burgundy,
on occasion of the Emperor's mar?
riage, for two summer days, against
all comers, and threw his Alsatian
revenues about with a profusion that
astonished the whole court.. Also,
the extravagant absurdity of ' v his
dress was only equalled by its splen?
dor; so the Austrian ladies vowed in
their soft Austrian tones that he was
As an aspirant to the hand of the
beautiful Clothilde, he had especially
do voted his military talents of her
father. Ho wore the young arch?
duchess's colors of all occasions; and
although he had once been ur horsed
in a tournament by an unknown,
knight who bore a knot of ribbons
of the same hue on his helmet, his
stout ' arm and skillful lance had
made tho terrible violet, Clot hilde's
favorable emblem, a dread to all
who -sat in knightly selle, from
which tho Landgrave was axcoeed
ingly su cc ess ful. in extricating them.
Still she liked .Count Krui tho
best. How her heart had beat, that
wcU-asmemberecl - day, ;:w?eiT' from
the gjulery she recognized hpr.iown
cognizance on an unknown helmet,
aiH|V ^mhthin'g tolfl her she was
guessing rightly at tho fnco beneath.
How sho held her breath and turned
si?k'.at\tne , crash of the; encounter;
and?hpw her., faintness; passed,.away
andr-her blood thrilled whott'-she
saw -tho, Landgrave . on his back,
Wi?i bia squire unclasping his vizor,

tion and'the. 'Landgrave's unbound?
ed disgust, regarded him with a
sunny smile, and - permitted him to
eat off the same plate with her at
supper-a partnership which, in
those unsophisticated times, implies
rather an excess of good will than a'
scarcity of china.
And Count Karl loved her very
dearly, and for her sake spilt Iiis
blood in her father's battles, win?
ning great honor and renown; and
for her sako haunted her father's
court, where ho was not exceedingly
welcome, and preferred his , almost
hopeless suit, with all its sorrows,
to the bright eyes and kindly "smiles
that wooed him from the rest.
It was strange, said the Austrian
ladies, to see so high couraged a
warrior, with a heart, so cold.
But stranger still was tho conduct
of Clothilde. So little ^advanced
was this yonug Indy in the code of
coquetry, that she did not despise
her lover for his unswerving devo?
tion to his mistress; that she did
not undervalue a possession simply
because she was sure of it; nor humi?
liate him because he was too proud
to endure and too kind to resent
it; nor visit on him all her own
petty cares and annoyances where?
soever they might spring; nor in?
flict upon him any one ol tho thou?
sand insults and injustices with
which women tako pains to destroy
a fabric they are unable to build up
again. And then who so dismayed
as the child itself, when the card
castle has fallen to pieces, nnd all
the ingenuity of tho pretty lingers,
and all tho tears from the pretty
eyes, can never put it together any
Our young couple, however, had
plenty of difficulties in their way
without- making any tor them.
Courtiers' glances are sharp nnd
courtier' tongues aro nimble; neither
do tho former restrict themselves
to seeing nor tho latter to detailing
only that which actually takes place.
Too overt an admiration on the
part of Count Karl for tho Emporor's
daughter would have destroyed its
object by earning his own dismissal
from the court. In public the lovers
were compelled to appear co'd and
distant, yet it did seem hard, very

First of all, ClothiWe, seized,, ns
it would seem, with, .a violent? hor?
ticultural turn, began to make a
practice of*walking at sun-set in
the garden above meutioned. After
a while, when her absence from
vespers ceased ?to be remarked, pho
extended her rambles to the adjacent
pine-forest; and somehow or an?
other it was a very short time before
she made out that if a handful of
violets should chance to come float?
ing down the stream whilst she
took her evening stroll, she need
not 'be startled in a few minutes
afterwards to find Count Karl at the
spring. . i
On tho occasion in question when
the archduchess expressed so much
surprise, tinged with displeasure at
the rencontre, she was particularly
anxious for an interview with her
admirer. That very day, some two
hours after noon-for the Emperor
dined at eleven, and sat a long time
after dinner-she had been sum?
moned to her father's chair to pour
ont his Rhenish, and listen to a
few words of ?paternal advice. The

so far below the dais as to be out of

master, was by this time so drunk
as to be both blind and deaf; thus
