The god old Baron Heruiann von Ilcelt
heim lay on hia dcaLh-iied, Iiaving been
morlally wounded while lighting tor his
queen, Mii;i ThOresn,. then engaged in
deadly sliile with her stubborn foe, Fred
eiick ihe Great of Prussia.
The old m.in, on finding' that all the
surgi-on's skill, and all his daughter's care
were likely to be of no avail, tent n mes
senger in i lie em pi ess to !.k, as a lust fa
vor, in reiuin for a Jil'e spent .-iiitl a, deuih
gained in her service, leave of absence
in.ni i he unity for n time for her brave
oiiirer Count Mutiiz von Ziltern staling
as a leaeoti' for the refitiest that, boinir m
the point of death, lit desired to place his
lYWithel less daughter under the legal pro
tection of her afiianceu husband, ere, he
left the world.
The empress, though pressed at this
time both for officers and troops, and
tin ugh she could ill spare the gallant
young count, who was the life of the army,
did not belie her ever vann, womanly
heart on this occasion; tho desired per
mission was accorded to the count, with
the strictest injunctions, however, ' to
hasten immediately afier the marriage
back to the army, where his ab ence
might cause incalculable disasters.
The winga of love bore the young count
in an incredibly short sp;tce of lime to the
ensile of llolizheim, and the presence of
his betrothed; and it was his reward to see
how the cheeks of the young Baroness
Iibt, though pale with watching, grew
iosy red under the gaze, and to note flow
ihe languid eves kindled into Sift splendor
as he drew nigh.
But this was no lime for the exchange
of love's joyous endearments; a dying
father, a distracted country, lover re
turning to the perils of the field were not
these circumstances sufficiently terrible
to check the quick flow of lovers' pulses,
even were they likely to beat too warmly!
The young couple had been betrothed
from infancy; and what is not often the
case under such circumstances, the
wishes of lhose most interested coincided
for once with the views of their parents; a
circumstance probably owing to the fact
tlmt events had prevented the children
growing up together like brother and sis
ter, as frequently happens; but who, on
the contrary, bad 6een nothing of each
other till both were grown up. The natu
ral consequence was that when the ardent
young soldier of twenty-one was introduced
to the beautiful young baroness at the end
of the first campaign, he thought her, as
she truly was, one of the loveliest and
most charming beings the world had ever
seen, and fell violently in love with her.-
At this time Ida, some years younger
than himself, was arrayed in all the
charms of opening womanhood; she was
tall and graceful, with clear blue eyes and
golden-limed hair, that waved in luxuri
ance about a face ot augelio sweetness,
while a faultless complexion of rare deli
cacy set of! every charm. It was no
wonder that the young Boldier, just es
caped from camps and bearded men, fan
cied that he had met with a veritable an
gel, nor that he should bless the good
fortune that had given him a right to ap
proach such a lovely creature us his be
trothed. . Quite as natural 4 was. it .that
Ida's gentle heart should easily surrender
to the bold' assaults of so handsome, so
gallant, so ardent a suitor.
But, in the early flush of their attach
ment, the young lovers were culled on to
part. The count was summoned back to
his regiment and now this was their first
re-uuion a meeting to be again followed
sfier a few moments of mingled joy and
grief, by a lon parting.
Immediately on the arrival of the bride
groom the-dying soldier, stern in his views
of a soldier's duty, caused the priest to be
summoned in all haste, and as soon as the
baud of the trembling, tearful bride had
been joined in wedlock to that of her hus
band, the hoi si-, already saddled and bri
dled by the baron'a orders, summoned his
master bv his impatient beamier, not . to
hesitate between love and duty, and the
old man, adding a father's blessing to that
of the priest,, bade the. bridegroom uod.
speed on his journey. ' A few broken
words and bursting sobs from the young
wife a few deep murmured whispers of
comfort and hope from-the bridegroom,
and the silence of absence fell on the old
castle, sicceeding drearily to the bustle of
the arrival, the hasty wedding, and the de
parture. ' - ' '
That night, after bestowinsr on , his
daughter such tender, anxious words of

The desolate younjr . wife wandered
about the castle in loneliness of heart,
vearninir for the living and the dead. Her
situation was too painful for her unstrung
frame to endure. Her strength, greatly
taxed by long watching over her lather,
yielded now to the grief, she felt at his
death, and her anxiety for the fate of her
husband. A dangerous illness brought
her to the brink of the grave, and wheu,
after many weeks of danger, she began to
slowly recover, the principal charm of her
beauty had vanished. The exquisite
bloom of her cheeks was gone. JNor was
that all: instead of the shell-tinted purity
of her complexion which had formerly
been so remarkable, the skin had become
sallow, stained and blotched. It certainly
was a confirmation of the truth of the old
adage that beauty was only skin deep for
the change was marvelous. In spite of
her line figure and regular features, the
lovely Ida of a few weeks ago would with
difficulty have been recognized. This one
hideous disfigurement obliterated all her
charms. The young countess was filled
with dismay and alarm. Her food hus
band! how should she meet him, cruelly
transformed as she was! How must she
shrink from the eye which had hitherto
been her delight to meet! How endure to
see that eye change to see disappoint
ment horror disgust, take the place of
the admiration which she was accustomed
to see expressed on that dear face! Site
felt she could not beat it. Such a change
would break her heart she must die of
love, mortification, and grief. She pic
tured to herself with morbid vividness his
first recoil of surprise and aversion, and
death seemed to her preferable to encoun
She sent for her physician, and im
plored him, at any lisk, or at any sacri
fice oir her part to find eorvre- rerrtt-dy-: for
the affliction, and ollered princely rewards
in case of success. The docl.r essayed
his uimcst skill, and numerous and inge
nious were his devices; but his eflo! ts were
ail in vain.
Meanwhile letters came from Count von
Ziltern, announcing that peace was about
to be concluded, and that in another month
he should be at home to claim the bride
from whom fate had so cruelly separated
him, even on their bridal day.
The countess and the doctor were in
despair. Ida besought him mote press
iugly than ever to cure her while the
good man was forced in humbleness of
heart to own the iinpolency of his drugs.
At last, one day, alter a painful interview
with the unhappy lady, who implored him
in touching terms to come to her aid, he
"There is, my dear young lady, a
remedy yet untried, but it is of such a
dangerous, or rather of so fatal a nature,
that i have not dared to name it."
Ida seized his hand with breathless ea
gerness; such earnest inquiry was ex
pressed in her looks, that be could uot
choose but answer it.
"There are, as all the world knows,"
said the doctor, "in this countiy as well
as Bohemia, certain arsenic spiings, the
effects of whose waters on the skin are of
wondrous virtue. Those who drink them
receive, as their certain reward, a com-
Idexion of singular purity and delicacy;
ut the boon is dearly purchased, for the
price is death death, slowly but surely
claiming the vutim as long as the daily
draught is continued death, swift and
fearful, as soon as tbe fatal cup is with
drawn. Such," continued he, "is this
fearful remedy, which owes its efficacy or
wondrous power to the fact that the water
is charged with the deadly poison, arse
nic. It is a secret not known to many
that there is on your ladyship's own es

then of the dread trial (h rough which she
Eassed, by the daily draught, which had

air she breathed.
But now suddenly the bright star of the
young count, which had hitherto been in
tne ascendant, waned. Some officers of
the army, havinjr engaged in certain trea
sonable measures, and being detected, were
urged by jealousy and other motives to

As he finished speaking Ida rose, and
clasping her hands exclaimed, fervently,
in her folly, "Thank heaven, I am saved!
My prayers are answered! Oh, doctor,
the conditions are hard but can I hesitate?
I pray you lead me to this spring."
The physician reluctantly obeyed; they
crossed the pleasure grounds and enlered
a wood, within whose dim rececses, in a
dark, secluded part, a spring gushed forth
mysteriously from a nook and trickled into
a rocky basin, which it appeared to have
worn for itself in the hi art of a huge
stone. The water was of a peculiar,
whitish color, and no living creature was
to be (,een in the little stream whioh flowed
away no plant grew near its margin.
But Ida eagerly tilled with the water the
goblet she had brought, aud was carrying
it to her lips when the physician gracped
"Rash girl, what are you doing?" he
cried: "half what your goblet holds would
cause your instant death," and taking the
glabs fiom her hands, lie poured away
three-fourths of its contents, and present
ing the remainder to hia patient, charged
her never to exceed that quantity if she
valued her life.
Ida drank. It was her first sip, from
the fountain of death.
She lmd her reward. The waters of the
Arsenic Spring acted as though by magio.

The countess made no other effort to
save herself. It was by using' her all
powerful influence on her husband, lo in
duce him so far to humble hirpself to the
empress, as to sue for any change in his
seinence, no matter what, would permit
his remaining in the country. Ida urged,
as a reason for this reluctance to leave
Hungary, her most true couviction that
she could not live away from it. But the
answer of the Empress was stern and brief,
"Criminals were not permitted to choose
their punishment." -
Ida perceived that her last hope was
'one. Look which way she wculd she
saw death awaiting her. Even if fortune
had permitted her still to remain near the
fatal spring, death was surely claiming
her, as many a fearful spasm about her
heart admonished her. If she forsook it
to follow her husband, the same doom
awaited yet more speedily; and, hateful
thought! before then, probably, a return
of the hideous disfiguration to be free
from which she chose, as she had chosen.
She did not even now repeht that choice,
and she nerved herself to accept the lot
she hod deliberately elected. It had
come a little sooner limn she expected,
that was all. The uncertainly was goue,
mm yum it me agitation ot hope alterna
ting with despair, which had shaken her
being lo its centre! A dignified com
posure was perceptible in her manner, as
in her spirit.
3ho calmly and efficiently assisted her
husband in completing his arrangements
packing up with her own hands moat of
his personal effects, remembering to add
those t iiles so essential to a man's comfort
when away from home, which only
thoughtful affection can suggest, and not
forgetting many a fond, tender little token,
or dear memento; whose meaning was
known only to themselves. At last every
thing waa ready, and the husband and wife
sat together alone on the last evening they
should ever spend in that beloved home.
Never before had Ida so yielded to the
tenderness of her nature inever before had
even her husband seen the whole unveiled
passionate strength of her love. - For this
once he. should see without reserve how
infinitely dear he was to her; and never,
never had he seemed so dear, and never,
even as a bride, had he seemed to love her
so fondly. ' Did any dim prohetic feeling
lorewarn him of the approaching doom?
Poor Ida, beautiful as she appeared to
the eniaplured gaze of the count, -knew
full well that the very beauty of her com
plexion was the sure lorerunner of her dis
solution. She kept the fata! secret from
her husband." For two short years of fan
cied joy, she had sacrificed a life which
might have been spent in usefulness.
She felt she was dying. She ent for the
priest who had pronounced the wedding
benediction. To him she unburthened
her mind; the heavy load that pressed her
down needed the consoling words of relio-i-oua
truth. She feared to meet the doom
of the self murderer m the world to come.
"Come unto me, ye that are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest," said the priest,
"are ihe wonU spoken to all repentant sin-
siners. Repent," he added, "for the king
aom ot heaven is at hand." She trembled
at the heinousness of the sin she had com
mitted: she implored in bitterness and sor
row the pardon of. outraged heaven: she
became penitent. The great consolation
of her faith upheld her in this trying hour.
She humbled herself before her Maker.
Let us hope that she was pardoned.
On the morrow, . notwithstanding the
bustle and confusion .in the castle, oc
casioned by the preparations for the jour
ney, the countess slept late and her maid
reported that she could not wake her.
The count went to her himself. . What
wonder that gating on all that wealth of
beauty, and on those cheeks still dyed
with a brilliant ied, he could not believe
that he looked on death. But she
dead. The penalty had been paid.

riving daily, in Richmond, and the ware
houses are nearly overrun. At Shockoe,
we understand there is more Tobacco, on
storage aid for inspection, than has ever
before been within the walls of the ware
house. About sixty hands are employed
there daily in coopering, breaking1, storing,
etc., and it deserves to be mentioned that
among this force, but in separate "gangs,"
are several white laborers. Until the
present year, we believe, negroes have
been exclusively employed to poiform
warehouse labor, but the enhancement of
the value of slaves, and the high rates of
negro lure have induced the inspectors to
"mploy a few whites, experimentally.
They are not as expert as the darkies in
whirling the hogsheads, but apart from
their lack in experieuce in thia respect,
they perform the labor required of them in
a satisfactory manner. It i3 not probable,
however, that white labor will entirely
supersede slave labor, at either warehouse,
unless the relative cost of the latter should
become so much higher, as to compel the
Inspectors to substitute the latter. Rich

Mr. Sumner speaks as follows of the
present war in Italy:
This is a great historic moment. There
has been nothing like it since 1816. -Many
here think that no good can come to Italy
from the Emperor Napoleon. I am not of
that opinion, although I join the distrust
which prevails with regard to him. But
the hour seems to have struck when Italy
is to be fiee, and be is an instrument by
which it i i to be accomplished. At Turin,
where I passed several days, all were con
fident of the result. They expect the
Austiians to be diiven out of Italy this
