[Written for the Oningebiirg Ni:\vs and
Anna Laneir's Presentiment.
Toni Carl ton stood by tbc side; of
Anna Lauuir, bis aHianccd bride,
with bis eyes beaming down into her
pure, stainless soul; through her black
lustrous orbs which gleamed out
from beneath long silken lashes, as
she said in accents that he could
"Tom, I feel in telling you good
bye to-night, that J shall never see
you more. I have a presentiment
that our dreams of future happiness
are deceptive; and Unit our hopes are
destined to premature disappoint
Tom Carlton steered Anna in the
lace for a few moments, ns if prompted
by a desire to penetrate the cnuse of
her seemingly groundless apprehen
sion, lie was earnest an I meant to
marry her at the appointed time.
Could it be possible that the woman
I be hud worshipped for four long
years, .should feel misgivings as to the
stability of her love, us the time ap
proached for their nuptials, and was
seeking for an excuse tu tell him so?
Surely, be mentally reasoned, if there
be any barrier in the way of bur
future plans, it must come from hoi
side. If I know my heart, I njh
aiiiccrely and terribly in earnest. So
catching Anna and clra wing her
gentle and perfectly m ?ddl d form
close to his bosom, lie sai I :
''Whetclbro these fears of von is,
my dearest love'? \V hence came
your misgivings? Surely you do in>t
mean, to tell mo that your hi art has
undergone a change,?I hat yon have

and if this bosom hpb'n which your

Would be to disclose to me a future of j

Anna! JIave you ceased lh hive
With eyes bathed in tears, whic]i
seemed to have welled up from her
very soul, Anna Laneir caught hold
of her lover's hand, and giving it a
warm, heart-speaking pressure, which
is the best index of u woman's sin
I ceritv, addressed him between her
sobs, in subdued and sorrowful
"No, Tom, 1 have not ceased to
love you. My heart is as firmly yours
as it was wont to be. If any. thing,
1 bei more dependent upon you for
my future happiness than ever before,
Jt is this in part that adds to my pre
sent misery. Tom, don't accuse inc
of timidity, of weakness ami irresolu
tion when 1 tell you that although 1
love you dearly?aye, even to adora
tion, J, nevertheless, am firmly im
pressed that we shall never be other
than we are to-night to each other 1
You may say that my fears arc
groundless, that 1 am foolish, but 1
solemnly declare to you that the pre
sentiment which has taken possession
of my bosom, although unwelcome,
cannot be stifled, and imperiously
asserts that when I but you
good-bye to-night, 1 shall have done
I so for my last time in this world. I
have tried not to believe it, but the
impression has forced its way against
my will. Oh ! Tom, what evil spirit
is it that has insinuated itself between
you and I ? We deserve to be happy,
and after four years of plighted faith",
it seems hard that some heartless
divinity should creep in and alter
what ought to be our destiny."
"Calm your fears, my deeply
cherished one. A strange hallucina
tion has come over you to-night,
Your imagination is wild ami is play
ing all sorts of pranks with you.
To-morrow you will feel better, and I
promise, now that you have assured
me that you love nie as devotedly its
ever, that 1 shall not take the train
to-night. You most retire und take
n pleasant night's rest. I will go to
my hotel, where 1 will cuter into-a
devout prayer to God that the un
welcome source of your trouble may
be removed, and that your wonted
cheerfulness of disposition, and hope
fulness of Luc future, may be speedily
restored to you. To-morrow morning
I shall call for you early; be prepar
ed, and we will spend a day in the
country. It will cxhiicratc and
strengthen you. One kiss now, and
I shall bid you good-night."
"Good-night, dear Tom ! You arc
so good to me," faltered Anna.
"Good-night, my love! May
Heaven's most watchful angel hover
over your couch to-night."
Tom Car lion wended his way to
bis room at thehotel in dreamy si
lence, while Anna st ood motionless in
the large elegantly furnished parlor
where her lover had left her; and it
was not until she cauglTt a glimpse of
her strange expressionless fueo in the
mirror that she bethought herself,
and retired to her room.
That the reader may understand
the characters of this short sketch
more perfectly, the chronicler will
state that'font Curlton was a native
of Virginia, a young man tolerably
prepossessing in personal appearance,
and possessed of seme brilliancy of
mind. Anna Laneir was a resident
of the "Land of Mowers," and resided
with her father in-. Carl ton
mot. her shortly after the war in a
neighboring State, and soon found
hints.h' a slave to her beauty and
mental accomplish men ts. It was (he
oltl story of love at lirst sight. They
had iiot been in each other's society
long before theirs were ?
Pjvo s-.n;l~ with hiti a sjlisjlv thought,
Curlloii made an tillering of bis love
to Anna Laneir. The offering was ac
cepted an unlonkul ibr boon, and
taken into Anna'.- heart in the place
of her own joweleled love, which had
g?lte (tilt in its maidenly purity and
tender simplicity to the bosom of
Tout Curl ton. A fair exchange was
no robbery, and theirs was fair even
Id precision and particularity. It
was thought for tbought, love for love
and heart ftir heart. Thencefoward
they were to live in each other's
thoughts, and study each other's
comforts. Days and weeks and
months were spent by these two
lovers together; and when Tom Carl
ton was finally called home,the leave
taking between them was full of
sighs, and tears and lovers' oaths.
They were engaged and were to be
married as soon as Carlton could pro
cure the old man's consent, and pre
pare himself for the responsibilities of
a married life. Me wrote to her often
and earnestly, and would receive re
sponses from her breathing undying
devotion and fidelity- In the lapse
of lour years he found himself in
ii position to bring oti the consumma
tion of the grandest dream of his life
? to go and tell Anna he would soon
be ready to marry. lie wrote to her
that he would pay her a visit pre
paratory 10 the final one, when he
should claim her at the marriage
it was while on this visit that the
scene which is described in the begin
ning of this sketch took place. Tom
Carlton bad gone on a visit to his
betrothed, and was about to take leave
of her when she told him of her pre
sentiment, that they should never be
husband and wife. He hud been
spending a week with her, and had
obtained her father's consent to their
marriage. Anna desired tho engage
ment consummated at once. Carlton
found himself so circumstanced that
no matter how anxious he might
luivo been to have tnken his idol
back with him to his native State, ho
could not have done so. His business
prevented this c?ur.ie. lie promised
that lie would return in about lb reo
months lime, when ho won hi lake
Anna and never quit hoc title. This
circumstance probably helped to add
to the maguitndc of the presentiment
of tho heart that was mi absolutely
his. And we lind him yielding
enough in his nature to promise to
prolong his stay another day, and to
devote that day to taking Anna in
Tom Carlton Woke up at his hotel
at the crack of day. Ho had spent re
most wretched night, and only hoped
that the queen of his leve had not
been similarly worried and fati
gued. Soon after bren'ast lie dis
patched a- note to Anna inquiring
alter her health, nnd if she would he
ablo to go-in the country.
Without saying anything about
how she felt; her answer invited Tom
to call for her as soon as he hud a
In half nn hour's time our lovers
were being drawn by a spanking
team along a picturesque and shady
road. Nature woro her brightest
exterior, which contrasted strangely
with the listless pre occupied look of
"Don't you feel better and more
cheerful this morning, Anna," inquir
ed Tom. "You were troubled last
night, nnd it made me miserable. I
want you to forget what transpired
then, and,--throwing off your mahin
choly, to enjoy to day in thinking of
of the near future when we shall be
united to be parted only by death."
Anna, to satisfy her lover, said she
felt very cheerful, and was much
obliged to him for the interest he
ma infested in her happiness.
This assurance cheered up Tom
und he dovotcd himself to the discus
don of such subjects as he thought
best calculated to entertain his coni
imnimi. The whole day was spent, in
roaming about through the country,

-cvoral tinjics, and the doubts and
fears' that1 beset it recounted and
laughed at by Can ton.
UinV whenever the subject of the
departure id* Anna's lover cants up, a
rdoudy foreboding would come over
her face, and her eyes would involun
tarily say'to Tom?"I can't help it. I
feel that these are the closing hours of
As the sun was kissing its good-bye
to the tree tops from its far oil'place
in the West, Tom and Anna drew up
to the residence of the father of the
hit or, where they alighted and sat
down to give an account of their day's
ride to the family.
Anna was sallied at two or three
times by her sister, who accused her
of selfishness in taking Tom and
keeping him off all day; she should
have allowed him to the company of
the whole family during the last hours
of his visit.
This sally was meant in good part
by Anna's devoted sister, but no one
but herself knew what a thrill of pain
it sent to her heart. It was not
known but to the two lovers themselv
es that Anna was wedded to the be
lief that she was then spending her
last day in the society of the man she
loved better than her own life, else
this uncce-sary pang would have been
spared her wretched heart.
The evening past, night found
Tom Carl toil and Anna I.uncir on the
eve of bidding each other good-bye
for the second time.
The latter had that same troubled
look, that worried foreboding express
ion, which characterized her features
the night before.
"If it must be, I can't avoid it,"
cried Anna, as she fell upon the neck
of her lover. "But Tom, 1 shall bid
you good-bye now lbrevor! Don't
ridicule my fears. I feel that they
are too true."
Tom caught Anna in his arms and
struggled with all his eloquence to
quiot aud allay her grief; but she was
not to be comforted.
And now the time had positively
arrived tor him to go, and her sorrow
wa? ten fold greater. She clung to
him with all lite devotion that ii was
nossiblo for her to manifest, without
disturbing the other inmates of the
house, who had previously taken their
leave of Anna's lover.
ll.it the good-bye had Id bJ uttjf
ed, tho purling kiss had to ho given,
tho tearful hand-shaking lind to take
place, for Tom Carl ton was compelled
to start homo thut night.
Anna was so weak from grief that
she could not stand up. Ten quietly

As goon as Tom Cat lion a: rived

patiently for an answer. Finally it
came, but it was not. such an epistle
as he expected. True it was couched

and it should be her duty to make a

her fate, she believed, had ?leered
that she should never be his wife.
"TIihww taught her.by tho dove.

Tom replied in an earn?*! appeal to
her to dispel the gloom l hat surround

all melancholy suhjieJs, and to dwell
more on the future and happy time
in store for them.
