Two roses buns 'u the purple eve
In the glovr of the golden sun ;
And tbohadowcrcptln each crimson heart
AVhen the Summcr'g day was done.
But one was dead when the morning came,
Dovvu-troddeu by careless feet;
In the light of the moon its petals fair
Had yielded their fragrance sweet.
Bat the other bloomed in the garden fair
Like the maid with a blushing face,
In the midst of the devv-kissed blossoms fair
It hung with a royal grace.
A leeson of life I learned from these
A thought that was bitter-sweet
As I gazed on the rose that bloomed above
And the blossoms that lay at my lect.
Twin-born arc the flowers ol hope and lore.
As they bloom in the purple eve;
Who knows, when the golden day is done,
What shadows the night will weave?
In the crimson heart of the fairest rose
The shadow of dcalb may lie;
Ami the hopes that live in the golden day
In the gloom of the night may die.
Twin-born are the lives and thoughts of
Tnin-bom are the hopes of the heart:
But the morning that comes vv ith its crim
Sees them faded and far apart.
LUCILE'S LOVE AFFAIR.
Dr. Ilarrlstc, like most men, was fond of
a pretty face, and when he caught a glimpse
of I.ucIIc'h, as the wind blew her veil aside
on the homeward trip of the Malta, lie
niiihcd he was her cousin, or the stout
ship's surgeon who dared offer his arm to
her for a promcn-idc. There was fomcthiug
almost familiar in the fnce, too. Where
had he met her? at what German reception!"
in the halous of the best society, or in the
ward-, of s-ome lioiilal Or was it only a
irii k of imagination; Had he Waltzed with
her at some sea-side hop, or taken her out
at some state dinner or wedding breakfast?
Dr. Harriioo was a bold man In his way;
the few day on the Malta had hung like
lead on his hands, there being but a hand
ful of cabin passengers, and many of those
without their sea legs. lie was a man quick
to think, but somewhat forgetful. His eyes
met I.ticilc's ; a smile of recognition Illum
inated his lace ; he bowed conOdcDlly, and
advanced toward her. "I am happy to meet
jou again," he !ald, unblushingly. "Per
haps you find it dull on board as I do?"
"If jou are at vour wits' end for amuse
ment, as I am, I'm sorry for jou," the said.
"My poor aunt has not been able o far to
lift her head from the pillow."
"Who in the deuce do I know with the ap
pendage of an auutf" Harrissc mentally
considered. "However, it doesn't signify,
if sho is only .imusing, and the aunt is not
The ship's surgeon, Dr. Johu, consulted
his watch. "I shall he obliged to deliver
you to the tender mercies of Dr. Harrlssc,
Miss Lindsay," he said, as ho hurried
"You sco I am lanio still," sho said pres
ently. "Is it possible !" he returned, feeling as
if he was groping in the dark. Had one of
bis acquaintances suffered an accident
which had escaped Ills memory? She took
it for granted that he was familiar with
the circumstances. 4V mistcp here might
expose him. "But doubtless it will wear
off in time," bo hazarded.
"I fear not. You don't realize that the
accident happened six years azo ; I used it
too soon. I must ride, 3 ou know, at that
time, or die. It was weak, and I got an
other fall, and broke it again."
"I am sincerely sorry to hear it," said
Dr. Harrls'c. Was it possible that ho had
know 11 this blooming creature for six years
and had neglected to cultivate her? How
ever lie would learn by experience, and
make the most of tho present.
"Is this your first viit abroad?" he ask
ed, a day or two later.
"Yes, I bavc been away five ears. I call
Kurope my school-room. I didn't know
anything when I left .mcrica, except rid
ing, jou know. I was a perfect dunce. I
hav 0 studied the arts and languages. I can
speak and siug to you in five tongues."
''With the tongues of men and angels
I've no doubt."
"I can paint you a picture that will not
behalf bad. Haven't I used my opportu
nities?" "I wish to heaven I had used mino as
"1 had thought of going upon the stage."
"I wouldn't. I'm glad you gave it up."
"Surely you are not ono of those who
are prejudiced againbt the drama?"
"Certainly not. But I have an uncon
querable prejudice against having the vvo

Miss Lucllc had withdrawn herhand from
tho doctor's arm 10 arrange her veil, but,
that duty done, she did not replace it till
he made a demand.
"But you would like your sister to write
the great Amerlean novel ?" she asked.
"Yes; tho literary woman sits at work
beside her own hearth-stone, in the shadow
of her own roof-tree, protected from the
"But how often she Is dragged belore tho
foot-lights, so to speak. Kvery penny-a-
liner makes her the subject of a paragraph;
her household gods are inventoried, her
profits estimated, her weaknesses chroni
cled, and her features photographed."
"But personally sho Is not fo much a
public character. She has reserves." And
after that the subject dropped.
But Luctle and Dr. Harrlssc had a thou
sand other things to discuss. He delighted
in a woman who dared to disagree with
him. They found that they had Just miss.
ed each other at Intcrlachen; that he had
onlj- been prevented by a chance from join
ing the party with which she had made
the ascent atMt. Blanc; they had mutual
friends abroad ; hut still the great enigma,
where had he known her in America, re
mained unsolved. But he troubled him
self very little about it just now; he was
drifting with the tide; ho was passing
through a new phase of existence. lie bad
believed himself invincible, and behold I
he had been conquered by "touch of hand,

a man of his age to be so easily enchanted ;
he rather longed for the end of the voyage
in order to discover if it was only the gla
mour of a pretty face and a sweet manner
that infatuated him. He assured himself
that it would not last, hut he seriously
hoped it would. Such moonlight nights
were never known beforo as those which
he spent with Luetic; such starlight never
shone upon the palace gardens or moun
tain streams. Was it the same old world,
or bad he been translated? She tang to

now that be had never been so happy in all

ask where be bad met ber, who she was,

It seemed to Dr. Ilarrisse, about this
time, that Dr. Johns was always joining
them, that he bad a weakness himself for
Hiss Lindsay ; and Ilarrisse smiled, think
ing bow futile it was.
"You remember Capt. llamcrton 1" ask
ed Dr. Johns on one of these occasions,
when the talk bad somehow drifted upon
love and marriage.
"Ob, certainly," said Ilarrisse, wishing

"And I suppose he married ber and lived

Dr. Johns left presently, and tho sunset
flamed in the west, and darkness dropped
down over the wide lonely sea, and one
star trembled into view ; and far oft a sail,
like a white wing, shone against the dark
horizon, wan and ghestiy.
The sea has Its pearls,
The heaven has its star,
But my heart, my heart has its love,
he sang, beneath his breath. "Do you
know, can you guess, Lucile can you
guess who my love is?"
"I was never good at enigmas," a little
distantly. "Dr. Ilarrisse, do you remem
ber when you first met me 1"
"It seems to me that I have known you
always," he evaded.
"I thought you remembered when I first
saw you here. I'm afraid you don't."
"Could I ever forget you Lucile ?''
"It seems so," she said smiling faintly;
"but I have a conlesslou to make."
"So have I."
"You will remember that I have deceiv
ed you ?"
"If this Is deception, let me be deceived
forever." And then Dr. Johns joined them
again. When they parted next morning,
ho said, "I shall see you, if I may, at the
first available moment In the week; If any
thing prevents, I shall write."
Sitting down to dine the following day
with bis bosom-friend "Ton," he asked,

broke a bone, tailing from her horse, atone
time, in the circus. I suppose you must
have set it. (lone, eh ? Been on the ragged
edge of a flirtation on tho voyage ? Fancy
Ilarrisse marrying a circus-rider 1 How
Beacon street would howl 1"
Dr. Ilarrisse was perhaps thankful that
his patients demanded his attention, and
gave him no time to think or visit at once,
and that a case of special and serious im
portance Importuned him, and made it ut'
terly impossible, as he said to himself, to
do other than postpone Miss Lindsay. Af
ter all, had he compromised himself? Did
not many a bachelor whisper tender noth
ings on a sea-voyage without intentions?
Was It not expected of him to charm away
sea-sickness and ennui? Should he not go
to see her, naturally like any other friend
like Dr. Johns when opportunity offered,
and let affairs adjust themselves? After a
month's reflection he adopted this course.
It seemed to bim that Lucile was a trifle
paler than before, bnt she made up for this
defect by a greater vivacity. Presently he
lound that when he called for an hour ho
was apt to remain two. After tho first v is
it they never referred to the voyage. One
day he met Dr. Johns coming away from
her presence; he had an air of suppressed
excitement about him. It was a year since
they had parted on the Malta. "The fellow
is almost handsome," though Ilarrisse,
"and ho is in lovo with Lucile." Miss
Lindsay was engaged with a headache, and
begged Dr. Harrisse would excuse her.
Tho words sounded strangely tolbltn; he
felt dozed and miserable, and angry with
Dr. Johns, as if his visit had something to
do with it. All at once the fact that Lucile
had begun lifo as a circus-rider seemed
trivial and of no importance compared with
the greater fact that be loved ber. Let
thoso laugh who will. What did it signify
to him, though Beacon street and all crea
He drove home and went to his library.
It seemed as if there was no time to lose.
He never remembered having been in
such a hurry before in his life. Why bad
be postponed happiness so long? It was
late in the following day when he received
"Your kind words," she wrote, "have
carried me back to those halcyon days ou
the Malta, when I believed myself as des
perately in love as you believe yourself to
be to-day. I confessed ail this to Dr. Johns
when lie proposed to me yesterday morn
Ing, and he was willing to absolve me"
Dr. Ilarrisse tossed the letter into the
grate, and went out to his patients.
It was perhaps a half a dozen years later
when, looking over some old papers, he
happened upon the charred remnant of
Lucile's letter, which his servant had res
cued from the Arc and folded away. He
opencu it curiously, and lingered over it,
"I confessed all this to Dr. Johns when
he proposed to me yesterday morning, and
he was willing to absolve me," he read;
"but if you love mo poor Dr. Johns! I
should like to punish-you ; I should like to
quote to you, 'There must be Nautch girls
and circus-riders, perhaps, but we do not
choose our wives and sweet-bearts lrom
among them,' and refuse your gift but I
love you. Lucile."
At this date, however, Lucile had long
been Sirs. Dr. Johns.

"GATH" ON BUTLER.
McClellan reported that it would take
50,000 men to occupy Ne w Orleans. Butler
enforced by Oustavus Fox, of the navy, in
sisted that It would take no such number.
Suddenly Mr. Lincoln decided in favor of
Butler. The government gave him about
13,000 men, they were rendevouzed at Ship
Island. It cost ? 1,500,000 for this expedi
tion, which had snch extraordinary results.
It is said that as he left Washington, about
the 24th of February, 18Gi, Butler said to
Lincoln, "Good-bye, Mr. President. We
shall take New Orlezns, or you will never
see me again." Stanton then spoke up:
"The man who takes New Orleans Is made
a lieutenant-general." He sailed from
Hampton Boads on the steamship, Missis
sippi, with 1,400 men on board, and bis wife
at his side, fclie went with him in all bis
campaigns as long as she lived. Nobody in
the country supposed there was an expedi
tion ready for New Orleans. The rebels
bad been deceived with the idea thatit was
to be attacked from above, and not from
"Did Butler take any further advanced
ground on the slavery question at Ship
"Yes, be Influenced his subordinate com
mander who arrived there beforo him.
(iencral J. W. Phelps, to assail slavery as
the bottom principle or the rebellion. 'Free
labor and workingmen's rights,' said
Phelps. The issuing of this proclamation
caused Butler to be denounced as a beast
and tin enemy of human society all over
the south. Butler was thirty days getting
to Ship Island, and his wife was accommo
dated there in a board shanty eighteen leet
square. She lived there among the flies In
the intense heat without complaint. While
there, they heard of the Merrimao break
ing loose from Norfolk and sinking the
Union vessels. Farragut, then a captain,
joined Butler, and the scheme ol reducing
tho forts below New Orleans was matured.
Before the expedition sailed a lot of gun
boats came out and attacked sonio of But
ler's people. Farragut got over the bar on
the 15th of April, and Butler, with G,000
troops, followed him two days afterward "
"How many vessels reduced tho rebel
"There were forty-seven armed vessels
In all, a good many of them new and many
were mortar-vcsseN. There were 310 mor
tars in all. Farragut was then sixty-three
years old and had been iu the army ever
since bis eleventh year. After six days'
bombardment the forts were hushed and
Farragut then ran by. It was almost the
anniversary of tho murder of the Massa
chusetts troops in Baltimore, when tho
samo Col. Jones who led them there, start
ed for New Orleans. Farragut's fleet was
already at anchor below that city. Butler
landed in tho town ou the 1st of May."
"How did New Orleans stand on the se
cession question at the beginning?"
"In 1848 it voted for Fillmore, and also
voted for John Bell, giving him nearly as
many votes as Douglass and Breckenbridgc
received. The sugar interest was much
devoted to the union, on account of tbe
protection it received. After secession
was accomplished, however, the cowardly
perpetrators of it began to drive out union
men, and women, too. Thero was a fierce,
low Creole element in tho place fond of as
sassinating. After the forts were passed
the thugs undertook to burn tho city.
Twiggs, tho renegade, started to run away.
They burned 15,000 bales of cotton, twenty
steamers, vast heaps of coal and wood and
the levee ran molasses. The governor took
a steamer and departed. When the federal
fleet came in sight of the city its seven
miles of levee were packed with human be
ings. Farragut sent a boat ashore and tbe
fools gathered there began to cheer for Jeff
Davis and the south, and groan for Lincoln
and his fleet. A few respectablo persons
conducted the officers to the city hall.
There the mayor (Monro), assisted by Mr.
Soule, refused to surrender the city, and
sent for a General Love!!, formerly a street
commissioner of New York City, who said
be would not give up the town, but meant
to fight on shore. While these men were
at the mayor's office their companions in
tho boats bad been assailed with that fury
of epithets which no man who has not ex
perienced it can understand. Farragut
wrote to tbe mayor: 'I shall speedily and
severely punish the perpetrators of such
outrages as were witnessed yesterday of
armed men, firing upon helpless women
and children for giving expression to their
pleasure at witnessing the old flag.' The
common council formally surrendered the
city on the 2Ctb of April. Commodore
Morris then hoisted the flag on tbe mint.
Guns were trained on the flag staff, and if
any mm had tried to haul it down he would
have been murdered from the war vessels."
"Was the flag pulled down ?"
"Yes. Four ruffians stole it, headed by
ono W. B. Mumford. The New Orleans
I'icajvae the next day mentioned all their
names as great heroes. It cost Slumlord
his life, for Butler hanged him."
"What followed S"
"Farragut got ready to bombard the city
for its want of civilized conduct after the
surrender. A company of marines landed
and restored tbe flag to tbe mint and cus
tom house. Butler came up in the Missis
sippi with 1,400 men and his wife, put his
vessel alongside the leveo and began to dis.
embark his troops In the afternoon, and
pressed the crowd back at the point of tbe
bayonet. Butler and his staff marched on
foot to the custom-house. The mongrel
crowd enjoyed themselves by shouting 'Bull
Bun,' 'Big Bethel,' etc. He immediately
suspended a newspaper for not allowing
his publication to bo set up in the office,
and he soon put down all secession news
papers. He made bis headquarters in the
St. Charles hotel. He gave orders II the
mob made any more foolishness to open on
them with artillery. Tbe mails were filled
with anoymous letters addressed to Butler,
calling him 'Cockeye.' "
"What were the circumstances of the
banging of Mumford ?"
"Mumford was a gambler, about forty
two years old, and rather good, looking,
who enjoyed for awhile his notoriety as
the lnsultcr of the flag, till be was picked
up on tbe streets one day, sent before a
military commission and condemned to
death, and on tho 7th of June, 1802, he was
hanged, and near the same time seven men
were condemned to death for trying to get
up a riot. These men were finally sent to
Ship Island. The gallows was put up be
fore tbe mint, and an old preacher came in
to Butler and said : 'Give us this man's lire,
general? It Is but a scratch of your pen."
Butler refused. As soon as Mumford was
banged the mob separated. Tbetr moral
gizzard was all gone."
"What was tbe fuss thai Butler had about
tbe women of New Orleans?" .
"Why, the women, after the courage bad
been taken out of the men, thought that
there was no way to reach them, and tbey
concluded to Inflict the mighty chastisement
of their ill-manners on the soldiers of tho
government. Women, as soldiers came
along, threw aside their cloaks to display
rebel badges. Secession colors were worn
in bonnets. When a Union officer entered
a street car tbe women would get ont of It,
or if one went to a church these christian
ladles would all leave their pews. Tbe fe
male school teachers kept their pupils sing
log rebel songs. About one tune was the
only one discoursed, and that was 'The
Bonnie Blue Flag.' Finally, a woman spat
directly Into tbe lace of two officers who
were walking peacefully along the streets,
and Butler then issued bis celebrated order
No. 2S, saying; 'As the officers and soldiers
of the United 8tates bave been subject to
repeated Insults from the women, calling
themselves ladies, of New Orleans in return
foe the saost scrupulous non-interference
and courtesy en our part, It Is ordered that
hereafter when any female shall, by word,
gesture or movement, Insult or show con
tempt ot aay omeer or soldier of the United
Statjs, she shall be regarded and held liable

"Its effect was Immediate. Tbe woman

town, and sent bim to Fort Pickens, and his
wife went with bim. But he sent Soule to
Fort Warren. He not only got bushels of
anonymous letters, but they wrote poems
about him. Paul Uayne wrote :
"Yes, but there Is one who shall not die
In battle harness
One for whom lurks In the dark silently
Another and a sterner doom.
A warrior's end should crown the brave,
For him swift court and felon grave."

THE SINFUL SPARROW.
At tbo last meeting of tbo Maryland Acad
emy of Sciences, Mr. Otto Lugger, an expe
rienced naturalist, read an interesting pa
per on the English sparrow. After describ
ing the habits of the birds as to nest-building,
or rather nest-stealing, and the cruel,
yet wise way In which tbey compel their
young to strike out for themselves, Mr.
Lugger said :
'When flower seeds aro planted to beau
tify our gardens and yards, Mr. Sparrow is
a tormentor, indeed. Ho knows all about
seeds especially how to find them. It is
in vain to try to scare him off by means of
fluttering bits of paper, or by the ringing
of bells. He docs not mind such things at
all. Sprouting peas, wheat, barley and oats
aro also very pleasing to the taste of Mr.
and Mrs. Sparrow. The different kinds of
small fruit aro by no means excepted from
their bill of fare. They prefer stone fruit
to any other, and doto upon grapes. Late
in July and August the sparrows in Europe
occasion tbo greatest amount of damage,
and will do so here if no steps aro taken to
nip such proceedings in tho bud, provided
it Is not already too late. Near cities and
villages immense numbers of sparrows flock
together and visit the fields of grain, where,
similar to the migratory locust, they bend
the plants to tbe ground by their weight,
tearing and scattering the valuable grain.
Tbey swarm around stacked grain like bees
and do much damage.
"The sparrow not only acts the role of a
dangerous tramp, but also that ot a bully to
other birds. What has become of tbe bouse
wrens, bluebirds and other sweet singers
and very useful birds? Tbey are gone, and
for good, if no steps are taken to protect
them against the English sparrow. Wher
ever this bird is introduced, foolishly or
otherwise, it has increased immensely and
to the hurt of tbe country. In Australia,
where It was Introduced with a view of
checking the damages done by certain In
sects, the government has already found it
nVcessary to counteract Its further increase
by paying prices for the eggs and heads.
For one hundred eggs, two and a half shil
lings, and for twelve beads, eight pence
have pecn offered, and with this result: In
two months eighty-one thousand six hun
dred eggs and eight thousand beads were
"Although It may seem cruel to advocate
tbe destruction of their eggs, which are
more readily obtained In numbers than tbe
bird itself, it Is Imperatively necessary to
do so. Bay worms, elm beetles, and other
Insects on our shade trees are as numerous
as ever, If not more so, because tbe really
Insectivorous birds have been driven off by
that impostor, Mr. Sparrow. Baltimort

A LEAF FROM FRENCH HISTORY.
During tho campaign of 1900, tbe French
army, destined to meet tbe power of Aus
tria on tbe plains of Italy, before it could
render itself master ot Turin and Milan,
penetrated even to the wails of Genoa, and
declared tbe terms of peace on the battle
field of Marengo, bad vet to surmount that
vast Alpine barrier whleli extends from
the St. Bernard to Nice and Montenottc,
and to overcome a scries of tremendous ob
stacles, presenting themselves one alter an
other in seemingly endiesa succession, and
tasking to tbe utmost, if not defying the
courage of the troops and tbe military
genius and perseverance of the leaders.
These obstacles were not merely tbe result
ot natural position ; there were instances
in which the resistance of tbe Invaded was
moro terrible than that of mountains, prec
ipices or rivers. Protected by fortificatious
of litttc strength or difficulty, and bnt very
Inefficiently aided by a locality wblch
yielded but a few means or opportunities
of vigorous defense, but sustained by an
indomitable courage, great resource of In
vention, and an enthusiastic love of coun
try, infinitely moro formidable- than their
courage and their skill, the inhabitants of
the small town and citadel of lvrcc, with a
garrison of four thousand Austrian soldiers
and twenty-five pieces of cannon, main
tained their post for three days against an
army of forty thousand Frenchmen, com
manded by the three youngest, but already
most illustrious Generals in Europe, Mas
scna, Launes and Bcrnadotte.
Furious at seeing his march thus arrest
ed before this insignificant little place, be
who bad taken Alexandria in a day, and
Cairo in an hour, and impatient, moreover,
to assumo bis positions for the Investments
of Milan, the commander-in-chief, on the
25th or May, 1S0O, ordered tho division of
General Lannes to march upon the village
in all its force and take it by assault. Af
ter three hours of sanguinary combat, of
fierce attack and the most heroic defense, a
handful of the defenders, driven from the
citadel, retreating step by step, and hotly
pursued by the v ictorious Frcncbmen,threw
themselves as a last resort into the quarters
of Adjutant General 11., with the resolu
tion there to maintain themselves to tbe
last, aud sell their lives as dearly as tbey
might. In a moment the house occupied
by this brave veteran was converted Into a
fortress barricades wero thrown up, loop
holes for musketry cut In the walls, and
every disposition made that time and means
afforded for a last desperate resistencc.
Lannes, who was the first to enter the as
saulted village, detached an officer In com
mand of two battalions, to drive tho Insur
gents from their position. The officer,
equally distinguished among bis fellow
soldiers for his impetuous courage and his
ferocity, soon forced bis way, at the bead
of one of bis battalions, Into the disputed
mansion, trampling, as ho went, upon the
dead bodies of the forty brave fellows by
whom it had been delendcd. General II.,
the only survivor, after beholding the
slaughter of his garrison, bad armed him
self with a hatchet, and with almost super
human strength and desperation, opposed
the entrance of the Republicans; and when
their leader presented himself, sword in
hand, at the door of tbe room to which he
had retreated, as bis last stand of defense,
the old General aimed at his head a furious
blow, which would have closed his career
at once and forever, had it not been skill
fully parried by the sabre ot the French
man. It was the last effort of tho wounded
and weary veteran ; be fell, and in another
moment the apartment was filled with Re
publicans. The Frenchman, who was never known
to yield quarter to a vanquished enemy, In
fifteen years of his wedded life, stepped
forward to dispatch the fallen General,
when a young and lovely woman rushed
from an adjoining room, threw herself at
his feet, and kneeling there, pale, distract
ed, the tears streaming from her eyes,
shrieked forth in a voice of terror and de
spair: "Sparc him, ob, spare him do not take
his life he is my husband the father of
The Frenchman glanced for a moment at
the suppliant with an cyo In which there
was no trace of cither anger or pity and
then, deliberately pushing her aside, bo
mado a step In advance, took a cool and
steady aim with bis pistol at the wounded
officer, and shot him through the heart.
The wife of tho murdered man uttered a
fearful scream, and starting to her lect and
flying to tbe room whence she bad come,
returned in a moment with her boy, who,
at the sight or his father's massacre, had
hidden himself, pale and trembling, under
tho bed; she held him up to the ferocious
Republican, and exclaimed :
"Monster i you bave slain the father
complete your work, and destroy the son."
At this moment, loud shouts were heard,
and a French General, surrounded by a
crowd ot officers, appeared at tho door of
the apartment. The sccno was dramatic a
perrcct coup de theatre. The heart or the
ferocious soldier railed bim ; pallor over
spread his features, and his limbs shook,
while Madam II., as if by a sudden impulse,
flung herself at the feet or the General,
with a single cry of "vengeance."
The General raised her kindly and re
spectfully, demanding at the same moment
an explanation or tbe scene before him.
Thero was but little need for words ; the
objects upon which he gazed, boro to his
mind the accusation of bis subordinate ;
that disfigured corpse that femalo upon
whose lineaments were stamped horror and
despair that feeble child, with his pallid
cheeks and his eyes streaming with tears,
calling upon his father who answered not.
The General perceived at once that there
was no fact to bo ascertained, no excuse to
be admitted. His eyes flashed fire, and
striking his glove forcibly upon tbo palm
of his left band, he turned abruptly, and
with a lowering brow, to the assassin who
stood before bim speechless and trembling,
and exclaimed :
"Sir, you are a coward and a savago!
What! murder In cold blood an unarmed
man defenseless a veteran before tbo
eyes or his wife, imploring mercy I It Is
the act of a fiend !"
"But, General," muttered the criminal,
with a hesitating voice, the voice of one
who feels that he Is lost.
"Be silent, sir," interrupted the Genera':
"I listen to no excuses I admit of no de
fense. You are unworthy to serve the Re
public. Givo me your sword, your epau
lettes. From this moment you are dismiss
ed rrom the brigade you have disgraced,
from the army upon which you arc a stain."
Tho Major raised his bead with a fierce
"General," bo said, but with a voice that
betrayed his emotion, "I surrender my
sword, but I demand a trial by my com
rades." "You shall bave it, sir, and within the
Then turning to tbo officers who bad ac
companied him to the spot, and reverently
baring bis head before the body or tbe vic
tlm, he said to them :
"Unite with me, gentlemen, In render
ing tribute or respect to unfortunate cour
ageto a brave and fallen enemy."
The remainder of that dreadful day was
passed by Madam H. In bitterness of grief.
After witnessing the interment of ber bus-
band with military honors, this unhappy
woman, who bad lost, in a single moment,
and under circumstances of such peculiar
horror, all that made life dear to her, ex

was therefore more astonished than 'alarm

H. began to feel alarmed. This unexpeel
ed summons, this strango reception, tbe
silence that prevailed around ber, all com
bined, first to surprise and then to terrify
ber. A vague sensation of anxiety and
fear oppressed her heart, and she could not
command her nerves ror the utterance or a
single word that might call forth a solution
of ber doubts.
All at onco the roll of a drum, at a little
distance, startled her from her painful rev
eries. It was quickly followed by a volley
of musketry, and the General, pausing in
bis walk, placedbis handuponhershouldcr
led her to the window, from which she be
held in the square below tbe fearful spectacle
of a military execution just accomplished.
"Look, madam," he said, in a calm, yet
impressive tone; "the man whom you see
lying dead upon the ground was a French
officer, whom his comrades in arms have
condemned to death for tho assassination
of an Austrian, in a city taken by assault."
He paused for a moment, then glancing
round upon the officers who stood near
them, be continued :
"You are at liberty to quit Ivree this
morning. General Desiax, whom I have
requested to be your escort, will answer to
tbo Republic for your safety. Farewell,
madam ; report to tbe Prince Charles what
you have seen or the Justice maintained in

we bad crept Into our bed, and had snug
