A great crowd assembled at Temple Bar,
and jostled each other in their haste to pass
through the- arches for foot passengers on
cither side of the Temple gate,' while hack
ney-coaches" and the ' fine glass conehes of
people of quality drove rapidly through the
centre carriage-way. Not only the Ben
chers of tho Temple, but all classes hurried
on to tho ancient Round Church of the
Knights Templars, to hear the two magni
ficent organs that had just been erected in
different parts of the venerable building, by
oWi . I'aincr.iicrnam ocnmidt, as this great
nrgan-buiWer .wns called, and Kcnatus Har
ris, 'the , J. roncti-uom englishman, who
had lech taught "'across seus" to construct
these marvelous pieces : of mechanism as
well ns his great elder Oofninn rival. ;
. Eight or nine -mouth before, the Master
of the Temple and the Benchers announced
their desire, to purchase an organ, which
should be as completo an instrument as pos
sible. The - 'wo- great -j organ-bu'dders,
Schmidt and Harris, both sent in proposals,
and were recommended b an equal number
of grirat musicians and distinguished friends.
The Bonchers could not decide whoso pro
posal to accept, and at last it was suggested
thai the two builders should each erect an
organ in different pans of tha church, and
after trial that organ should be retained which
should bo pronounced by a majority of the
judges to be the better of the two. This
proposal hod been accepted, and the two
orgun-buildcrs hod just completed their work.
This was the day of trial. Tho famous
Masirr Henry Purcell and the great Dr.
Blow were there as Schmidt's frionds, and
were to play its wondrous excellence. Ren
aius, Harris had procured Queen Catharine's
organist, good Monsieur Lully, who was a
skillful and cunning prayer, and he left sure
thai the foreigner's witching touch would
surely secure favor for his organ, preat
musicians, great men were ranged on both
sides, and party spirit ran high.
' First pealed out the grand notes of tho
German's organ, for it had been placed there
a few hours before Harris' had arrived, and
was entitled to the first trial. Sweet Master
Purcull ployed, he was so inspired thai those
who had heard him oficn play, said they had
neve? heard him poring forth such melodious
sounds', and many averred afterward, that on
thai day they first heard passages of his
great "To Deum" and "Jubilate," which
which were the unwritten. Good old Dr.
Blow stood behind this much-loved musi
cian, and while the solemn movements of
fugue pealed out, tears streamed down his
cheeks, and he ejaculated what he al'crward
bade them write on his grave-stone,
"I was the Master of this famous Harry Purcell."
Dryden stood close beside him. with his
beautiful wayward wife, the Earl of Berk

Down in the interior of tho church was
Arthur Byfield with tho beautiful daughter
of Renatus Harris, who clung close (o her
lover's arm,' and looked earnestly through
the dense crowd that separated her from her
fuiher, who was In tho organ-loft with his
distinguished friends,' to see if his face ex
pressed sternness or satisfaction: Arthur
Byfield felt more than a mere artisan inter

nest and alreciionaie manner of his mistress,
which assured him of her love, and made
him tranquil and happy, even though the
handsome Knphacl Uourteville. a gay gal
lant and son of one of the 'King's chapel
gentlemen, stood on 'her other sido; and
whispered sweet compliments in her oar.

ed the pretty bower-room of his daughter,
and found her and Arthur' standing by the
window, looking at the gold 'and yellow
elouda In the western sky, hand in hand, he
went up to them ; and after telling them the
decision of the committee, eaid, 1 " '
'No wedding yet, my children. As the
solemn old Puritans would say, Arthur,
thou must serve fur thy Rachel a twelve
month longer. I will be a atern Laban."
"And it will be better for them to wail,"
said the kind father to himself, as he left
the room ; "Renee is all too' young to wed
yet; she is only seventeen,' and the-gold
they give me for this organ shall be added
to Arthur's capital when take him into
partnership with me, which will be when
the priest's blessing makes him my son."

be opened on a week day, tor a final exami

had been added by both organ-builders, and
had been heard with great delight, by , the
crowds who thronged tbs church and trial;

so exact on both sides, and thq fine; tones
and rich volume so equal, thai it, was diffi

two. 'All London talked of the contest, and

of the way, the never-forgotten face of the

dress of a common sailor, with a large tar
paulin-hat flapping over his eyes; but the

hat no other man living had so detestable a

boldly up to the platform, to deny the charge

men of both sides, whri knew his integrity.
'Look ye, do not speak one word ; and you,

It was useless for the unjustly treated, in
sulted man to answer, or fur his friends to
defend him: the disposition of iho Chief
Justice was too well known by all present,
for any one to dare to utter a word ; and the
crowd dispersed, but not without murmurs
against the detested Chief Justice. Father
Schmidt was informed of his unexpected
good luck, and with restored humor promised
to have tho bellows straightway repaired,
that the organ might be fit for use.

The litilo psrty that sal around the table
at Renatus Harris' house, that night were si
lent and sad. Poor Renee stole a look at
her father's face, r.ow and then, and large
tear-drops rolled down her cheeks, as she
saw how was the expression on it of mortifi
cation and anger. To bo accused of so un
worthy a trick, B9 thai with which tho Chief
Justice had cburged him, was too much for
his proud soul lo bear. Truth, he had much
to sustain him, for Master Henry Purcell
and Drs. Blnw and Ludway, with many oih-
er disilnguisnea men, naa uone mm tne
honor of calling at hh house, to assure him
how entirely every one acquittod him of the
slghtest knowledge of, or participation vin
the wicked piece of spite ihat had been done
to Father Schimidt; but still the sting of
mortification remained and rankled, and ha
sat by the board silent, and left his evening
meal untouched. ' ,
Arthur looked nl his mistress sadly, wish
ing ho could kiss off those glittering teai
drops; : and once when sho went out of the
room to give oid Elsie some domestic direc
tions, he followed her, and in the dimly de
lighted passage folded her close to his strong,
stout, loving heart, while she wept freely
the tears her father's presence had restrained
, "Nay, don't lake on so, sweet Renee,' he
whispered, "no one can bolieve the bad
Chief Justice; thy father is too well known
and honored for such an unjust chargo to be
credited against him; and as for tho wed
ding, darling, it will soon come, and thon
wo will be so happy; my Renee will never
