Hera are nnwarda of a hundred thousand words good
bad and Indifferent whose multifarious meanings and
derivations, together with their eorreot spelling and pro
nunciation, are set elearly before the eye. The work Is
unquestionably the greatest Thesaurus of English Words
from th Cltvdand rialndtaUr of Sept. 90, I860.

nothing to be desired, and in Orthography it is sufficient
to say that Worosbtxr can be safely followed.

door, and a man entered, whose bowed form and
white hair bore the impress of extreme old age.
It waa Lord Cantref. He gazed upon his daugh
ter for a moment with an expreeslon of mingled
priae ana pleasure.
"Heaven bless ycu, my beloved child!" he
murmured, fondly. "But come," he added,
'the carriage Is waiting, mv love, and our
friends are growing impatient."
"Has not Walter been here vet. father," In
quired the voung girl.
"No," replied her father. "It is rather
strange; but I suppose something has detained

Aa Blanche passed down through the srouo of
liveried servants that lined the ball, every one
anxious to catch a glimpse ol tbe bride, many
a heart blessed her sweet face, and prayed that
all the bright anticipations its smiles and blush
es shadowed forth might be realized.
To Lora Cantret's surprise, tbe Earl of Eg
berton was not at the church door when they
arrived. 'His brow grew dark with anxiety,
though he endeavored to allay the apprehensions
of his daughter, whose cbetks alternately flush.

Just as they were about to return, Lord Can
tref noticed a horseman approaching at a furi
ous pace, whom he recognized as Mr. St. Croix,
tbe young earl's cousin. His olotbea were torn
and dusty, and bis face pale and haggard, as he
hurriedly alighted from big horse, which was
covered with sweat and foam. As bis eye fell
upon Lady Blanche he hesitated, and casting
significant glanoe upon Lord Cantref, beckoned
him aside. But this movement did not escape
the observation of Lady Blanche, whose cheek
grew pale from fear.
"it is from Waiter!" she exclaimed, breaking
from her attendants and following her father.
"Tell me," (be added, wildly, addressing St.
Croix, "Is he 111 dead?"
"Be calm, my dear ohlld," said Lord Cantref
soothingly, whose countenanoe betrayed great
agitation: "tne voung earl is not detd. oniv
missing. It is to be hoped that be will yet be
Lady Blanche made no reply, but fell pale
ana gasping into ner tatner s arm?, wbo quickly
conveyed her to tha carriage.
Many or the bystanders gathered around St.
Croix, anxious to know tbe cause of this strange
soene. from tne narration he gave, tbey gath
ered that tbe earl had disappeared, no one knew
whither. That there was no clua to bis fate,
excepting his horae, whloo came borne a few
minute after midnight with dark stains
blood upon bis breast and sides. Tbe grief and
norror witu whion at. oroix narrated these cir
cumstanoes produced a very favorable impres
aion on those who heard him: lor he was next
of kin to the earl, and upon bis death would
come into possession of the earldom.
"My child," said Lord Cantref, a few months
after, who was in close and earnest conference
with bis daughter, "I would not urge you to take
this step, were I not assured that it would reault
In your ultimate happiness."
"I don't doubt it father," said lady Blanohe
languidly; "but somehow tba very thought
repulsive to me. I never liked Mr. Si. Croix,
and cannot say that I like him any better since
his accession to his new honors. Tbere is,
my woman's Instinct, something treacherous
and cruel In the very glance of his aya and tbe
I .mind nf hlavnlne."

"xou are prejudiced, my daughter," said ber
father: "1 see nothing of this. Indeed, I oe

ha added solemnly, as his daughter male
reply, "aod will soon have no father, for my
race is nearly run. It grieves me to leave you
so unnrotected. and it would take the last sting
from death could I see you Lord Egberton'
"Let it ba as you say, father," replied Lady
Blanche, indifferently, "bioce Walter is dead,

Once more Lord Cantref'a mansion is all

ry peal, for it Is the bridal day of the sole daugh
ter of his house, tbe Lady Blanohe, the Rose of
A murmur of mingled pity and admiration
filled the church as the bride entered. Her faoe
was almost as pale as was the oostly veil, whose
ample folds fell nearly to her feet, and bore the
impres ot deep seated melancholy. She look
ed more lite a corpse tnan a bride, and tne
whole proceeding resembled tar more a funeral
than a bridal. The bridegroom soon entered,
whose haggard countenance indioated that be
hadp aseed a sleepless night. No murmurs fol
lowed hie entrance, even among his own retain
ers, for be bore no resemblance to the lata earl,
bis predecessor, wbese affable and engaging
maunera bad made him a general favorite. His
morose, unsocial dispoiitlon and haughty bear
ing made him both disliked and feared. As be
took bis place by Lady xtiancoe fie looked little
like a happy bridegroom; his manner was ab
stracted, and bis eye wore an anxious and rest
less expression, and several timea he gave
sharp, harried glance around the churob, as
feariug ;to meet same unexpected guest. He
grew oalmer, however, when the ceremony com
menced. When the old roctor bade those "who knew
cause er jual impediment why those two per
sons should not be joined together in holy mat
rimony to deolare it," it waa considered
those who beard it as a mere matter ot iorm,
and thev were startled by the sound of
deep, hollow voice in tbeir midst, which
"Hold! I forbid the marriage."
Tbe bridegroom turned toward tbe plaoe
wbenoe it trooeeded. He started, and grew
pale, as his glance fell upon the swarthy brow
and flashing eyes of Cleopatra, the gypsy
queen, unaoasnea ny nis angry glance,
the many eyes fixed npon ber, she exolaimed
"1 proclaim toward bt. uroix, lalsely called
the Earl of Egberton, to be a forsworn lover,
treaoherous kinsman, and a murderer, and
therefore no fitting mate for the pure and gentle
Lady Blanche bantref. '
"It is ialae she is mad!" said tbe earl,
hoaraelv- "Let the ceremony proceed.
"Fool!" muttered tba woman, "you rush

a man who sat in the back part of tbe church,
muffled un in a large cloak, "oome forward and
Drove tbe truth of my assertion."
. At these words tbe man arose, and throwing
back tha cloak, revealed a faoe, which, though
pale and ghastly, bore a strong resemblance
tbe young earl's- Then walking deliberately
up the alale, he approached the alter, and fixed
his eyes sternly upon tbe countenanoe of
guilty man. .. When St. Croix's eyes fell upon
him, he stood like one transfixed with horror
Then, throwing bis arms wildly above hi head,
as if to protect himself from futther approach,
be fell beavily to the floor, blood gushing from
his mouth and nostrils..
All but one among that borrot-strlcken group
supposed it to be tba spirit of the unfortunate
earl, which bad retuf ned to take vengeance
his murderer, and feared to approaoh bim. But
Lady Blanche, rushiog forward, threw herself
wildly upon tue bosom of her lover, obtaining
convincing proof as she did so, from tbe warm
kisses tbat foil npon ber oheeks and lips, that
waa no spirit, but ber own Walter. ""..
..When tbey lifted St.. Croix from, the plaoe
where be had fallen, they found that life bad
departed. It seems that tbe wounds given to
the young earl were not, aa bis murderers sop
posed, mortal. His plunge Into the liver, instead
or rendering his death oertam, restored hlmtt)
ooMQ'Ousnts, and when ha arose to tbe snrfaoe,
he made a desperate effort to regain tha shore.
In this he would not, probably, bava been suo
oessfui, for he was very weak from tha loss of
blood, had It not been for tbe gipsy queen, who
was crossing tha river lo a boat with soma of ber
followers. She picked him np.oonveyad him to
her tent, and, with the most devoted and tender
oare, nursed him through the long and dacgeroca
illness that followed.
Tbe earl, on hla recovery, became aware of
his oooaln's usurpation of his estates and title,
also of bis betrothal to the Lady Blanohe; but
retaining a grateful sense of bis indebtedness to
the heroic woman to whom he owed bis life, and
wbo, in spite of all, still cherished a strong af
fection for his treacherous cousin, he allowed
her to warn bim, hoping that it would induce
bim to flee the oountry, delaying for that pur
pose his appearance until tne very last moment.
