My husband had left me to procure a catalogue,
when sddenly's heavy hadi was laid upolnmy

seemed likely to have add iii mei , or who
seemed to notice me. A few paces from me,
looking intently upon a small painting, there
stood a tall, stately lady, and no one else was
near. I hastened, when I recovered the use of
my faculties, to ask her if she had seen any one
speak to me, when she quickly arose, and left
_the room. As shoeturned to pass to the door,
saw her face'it was handsome, but so cold
haughty, and with so fierce an exp_
-self-wil, that the weo ps; it
was a strange i t, too, and it ted me all
day. I was bewildered; but d not tell my
husband. I did not win trouble or annoy
him. I was frighten d c~rt of spirits, and

ceuld-no orgot those dreadful words. The
opera was beautiful; liut my attention would
wander. Looking round the boxes, I suaddenly
saw the same lady I had net in the picture
gallery. Her hadomne, haughty face bore an
expreasion thatsurprised me; her large, glit
toring eyes were fixed upon me, and a smile of
triumph, malicious, and revengeful,-eurled her
lip. I turned to my husband and said: 'I do
wish, Percy, you would tell me who that lady
is tha'e oppoisite with the pink -dress.' He
-turned at my request; but when he saw her,
-. isa face becamo deadly pale and convulsed with
emotion. 'Do-you know her T-are you illf

"'Nothing,' said niy husband, 'but the heat
is toe greit; will you emiihome, Eva?'
"I rose, terrified, to leave the box, and turn

As we were driving home; when my husband
became more composed; I told him of my ad
venture in the picture-gallery, and asked him
if he could possibly conjecture the meaning

"'Yes; but why this haste?'
"'Ask me no questions, Eva; only hasten, and
and let us be gone.'
"My husband's manner was stern, and he
became so silent that I dared not interrupt him.
Directly we arrived at home. he left me to ar
range for our journey, and, ringing formy maid
I told her to prepare for instant departure. I
was tired, and niy head ached with useless con
jectures. I felt a foreboding of coining misery
that ~ ould not aceount for. I was in the
dIrawing-room, packing a few hooks, when a
servant entered, and told me I was wanted.. I
said I could not see any one. I was engaged; but
in a fiw' minute the lan returned, and said
the lady inaslited upon seeing me, and before he
had finished speaking, the lady I had seeln at
the opera stood before mne.
"'You are leaving Paris.' sihe said, with a
encerinig smile, 'but it is imnportant that you
should grant me a few uonllw,nts; perhaps I may
alter your plans.' -

LtDun.t.-At a Dublin-police court, on the a
27th ult., a young man named Thomas Wiseman
_ was brought up on remand charged with being t
a member of t eTiFenian- Brotherhood--It-ap-
peared from the information of Corydon, that
the prisonerlhad been in the habit of attending
Fenian meetings at Cork and Dublin, and that v
he was seen in Dublin a few days previous to
the so-called "risnng" st year.. Mr. Anderon,
Crown Solicitor, applied for a further remand,
in order to make inquiries regarding the pris- P
oner at Cork. The application was granted. P
The-Dul,liu Erventg Mail says: It is known
that Mr. Heron's retainer comes efrom the Amer- o
ican dovernment, and that he has received a g
fee of two hundred- guineas with his brief, in u
the case of Nagle. . C

petty sessions, Matthew Duggan was charged '
with having in his possession some eight hun- a
dred or nine hundred swords or cutlasses, con- a
trary to the provisions -of the act referred to. a
The defense was thathe articlcalled-swerds
or cutlasses were simply imelmente for split- f
.ting cane, which were pehaued at a publio f
f auction of wrecked goodsatt Kilmore, in that v
couty, a time ago. They were part of
the wrecke materials of the Fairy Queen, a r
I mlel wh was bound from Liverpool to Li- .
~erlsSeu~ *n-erlawith a general cargo, ,
r that was wrecked on the alte. Islands lant
December. 'Those-so-alled swords were rude c
looking implements, The blades were about d
Stwenty-three inches long byrfrom two to three
I inches wide, with a blunt edge. The magis- 1
I trates were of opinion that Duggan had not I
transgressed the law by purchasing those
articles at a public auction, but thqy directed
the constabulary to retain the Weapons until t
the legal officers of the Crown could be con- t
a suited in the matter. -
