THE TWIN BROTHERS:
A STORY OR THE PLAGUE.
WRITTEN FOR THE TIFFIN TRIBUNE.
BY J. WALLACE BRYANT.
Leaving the art gallery, he mounted his
steed and hastened home. There he found
the stately apartment of his father's house
thronged with tlie gay and beautiful, but
his heart, now filled with new emo
tions, longed for solitude, and stealing ere
long from the oppressive gayety and splen
dor to the cool and fragrant garden, here
clinod his body upon a tuft of grass beside
one of the avenues leading toward a fa
vorite bower. But not long had he ocru
pied his chosen retreat, when approaching
voicea disturbed his pleasant meditations,
The speakers paused at the end of the bow
er, where a scat was placed on which they
sat down, to continuo their discourse.
The moon was pouring forth her bright
rays, in all the loveliness of her majestic
splendor, and the young lover soon recog
nized the voice of his father and Mr. More-
land. They were so near that every word j
they uttered fell with terrible distinctness
on his ear, almost paralyzing the very
functions of life.
Edward's union with Viola wns the theme j
which the wretched lover was doomed to
hear discussed. Tho contract formed in
the infanry of the parties, and now short
ly to ho ratified, the inirodurtion soon to
take placo between the youthful pair, the
details of their future C'triblitihiuait--)"'a
-TmrnT"TTCry" Cireunintmice ronnodoil
with tho subject, were canvassed with a
torturing minuteness that, like a poisonous
mildew, blighted forever the fuir buds of
that swMt Impo ho had ua fondly cherish
ed. Yet there he lay, his face buried in
his hands, chained by a strong facinntion
to tho spot whero tho dismal knell of his
happiness had rung its futal peal upon his
heart. . Long, long after the sound of those
voices had passed away from the spot, he
remained there, struggling for aelf-con
quest; nay, more, for that titter negation
of wolf, which aould clone cnnblti him to
rcjoico in his brother's joy and happiness.
And so his bright and beautiful dream
was ended. Although ho felt that it was
in his power to usurp tho fortune in store
for Edward, by winning Viola to hi in self,
yet he felt that it was not for him to con
traveno the chorinhed plans of those who
gave them life. He therefore resolved for
his brother's sake to see her no more, nnd
strive even to banian her image from his
William, unlike his brother, had from
boyhood cherished a predilection for a re
ligious !ife, and this first disappointment
of the heart fixed his resolution to embrace
it. Perfectly aware of the similarity of
person which exiated between him and his
brother, Indeed so perfect that each was
often mistaken for the other by their most
familiar friends, William cherished a se
cret and romantic hope that, when the
destined lovers met, Viola might see in
Edward the cavalier of the art gallery, and
wholly surrender him the heart, in which
William could not forbear to believo that
he had created the first interest.
At length Edward wai formally presen
ted to tlie fair young Viola, and tho hope
of the aelf-sacrificing brother eeemod oh
the eve of fulfillment, for she started when
she heard what she took to be the same
voice which, in auch impassioned tones
had addressed her in the gallery of art, and
she raised hor timid eyes to acknowledge
hit salutation recognizing as she believed
the handsome features and graceful figure
of the stranger. It was to her a pleasant
(uprise, and the delicate hue of her cheek
deepened with emotion as her beaming
eyes were lifted again to his with a glad
yet bashful glance of silent recognition.
But before the interview terminated, she
experienced a certain disappoint incntfrom
tho manner and conversation of Edward
She shrank from his brilliantrepartoo.and
his gay laugh was a discord to her ear.
The awect seriousness, tho calm and gen
tie dignity which marked tho deportment
of William, had during their brief and bi-
lent meetings deeply impressed her, and
gave indication of a character perfectly
opposed to that manifested by him who
being in exterior his counterpart, she
thought the some. When, therefore, she
was told by her father that she must look
upon the young Edward aa her affianced
husband, sho was conscious that her heart
did not warm toward him, and she marvel
led at iu coldness, when once it
throbbed almost to bursting, If she but

with his love for William
THE BIRTH-NIGHT FETE.
We niunt now take up tho thread of our
narrative, whero Edward and William en
tered tho Morelsnd mansion to do honor
tt the anniversary of Viola's birth-day eel
obration. It will be remembered that by
dint of great perseverance Edward succeed
ed in gaining admittance to tho circle of
friends, who wero engaged in entertaining
tho fair Viola, while William, yielding to
the pressure of the crowd, passed on to a
spacious hall of paintings.
Aa opportunity was soon presented for
Edward to spoak with Viola, when proffer
ing his arm he proposed a promenade.
At first she declined, but when sho was
aaaurod that William hnd inado his appear
anrc, she willingly consented, and excus
ing herself to her friends, she accepted his
proposal. Edward was very eloquent and
communicative, and wondered that he did
not rocrivo soino word of praise for the
evidences of his love, which he thought
were manifested in an vnmistakitble milli
ner. But he could get from her scarcely
a single syllable for sho was thinking of
him who had so deeply impressed bis im
age on her hoort. Edward began to grow
nuito impatient, and as they were wend
ing their way in starch of William ho de
termined to know tho worst.
"Keep mo no longer in suspense, lady,"
said Edward, striving to curb his passion,
there is soino mystery to explain, and I
oultl hear it now."
Che answered slowly and dispassionate'
lyi "In tlio gallery of art, annexed to
aw one like yourself, so like, that when
you first addressed inc, I never thought
that you wore another; but when you came
"Ay I" interrupted Edward, with a
acoruui! laugh, "you thou saw in your affi
anced husband but tho dim somblanco of
that brighter imago which had preceded
"Do me not injustice; I said"
"Ay, evon so," he intorposed,"the chil

lady, I mark them not 1 And now yes,

William; and it was because I wore his
soinblance, and plead my suit in tho tones
of his voice, that I gained even a brief
hearing from hor, whose heart he had ateal-
thily been beforehand with mo in winning.
Ay, ho has made mo deeply his debtor,
this nublo brother of mine; and I will
thank him for hia kindnos, as I have never
thanked him for a boon before."
"God forbid Uiat I should bo tho unhap
py cause for dissension between you," sho
exclaimed earnestly. "True, I have met
him, but it was by accident, and doubtless
before this he has forgotten it. Let it nev
er again bo spoken of for I should Booner
be tlie instrument of my own death, than
live to bring discord and hatred into hearts
so long knit together in the holy bonds of
Her touching voice, and tho pleading
eloquence of her soft eyes, which, filled
w itli tears, she turned imploringly upon Ed
ward, a (Tec ted him deeply, and appeased
the passion which for a few momenta had
spurned control. His fine countenance
grew calm, and tlie expression of his eyes
softened as he looked down upon her love
ly upturned face. Tenderly clasping her
trembling hand, he pressed it to hi heart,
with a low and sweet whisper, that dyed
her pale chock with burning blushes, even
while it seemed to her that a hand of ice
was laid upon hor heart. And thus they
passed along through the lighted hulls,
Edward's eye roving restlessly round in
search of William, and Viola's wundering
in tlio some pursuit, though sho secretly
prayed that the brothers might not now
meet. Troops of friends joined thorn be
fore they reached the picture hall, whero
the first object that met the glance of Vi
ola, wai tho noble figure of William, con
templating tlie painting of hor own lovely
Edward's quick eye immediately per
ceived his brother, and when he suw Vi
ola's check grow pale at tho recognition.
and beheld her sink at his feet, he read
her sudden illness a confirmation of his
jealous tears, and powerless to control his
passion, he fled precipitately from the
mansion. Hastening home, he shut him
self in his own chamber, to soothe by sol
itude and silence his distracted mind but
peace came not to his prayer, and chafing
at confinement, he sought an open balcony,
and with restless step, paced through the
night, impatiently looking for the return
his fulse brother, to meet His bitter re-proaches.

Our hrst Bight in camp was a hard one;
the morning was cold, very ctdd, when
we loft the Vwt and while we were load
ing onr waggons; but as evening approach-
ed it became much colder. Tlie wind!
blew a perfect storm, accompanied with!
l "l. , a. . .
rain, hail snd snow. It was strongly sus
pected that the "Storm king" was abroad,
and to us it was self evident we had left
homo too toon. The season i all of three

so says the "oldest inhabitant."
Mr. Frost had been unwell, on board of
tho boat; ha had the ague and fever, and
tho weather continuing cold, boanling was
obtained for him in the city; and ho not
having recovered at the tune of our de
parture, and desiring to return home, de
clined to proceed any further. We there
fore had to tako leavo of him at Leaven
worth. Ilia moss was then reduced to
five, to-wit: Messrs. Ppiclman, HeckVt ith,
(of Milan) Pcilhnrz, Newman and Mosso
ney. Our mess consisted of E, J. Cham-
herlin, Charles Martin, Win. W. Maule,
Dennis Shaulc, Henry Adams and myself.

camped in Neheuia Co., on the East bank
of the Nclicma Iliver, In view of the town
of Soneca on tho West aide of the river.

no larger than our Rock Creek, about 20

a prepossessing appcuranco. I will not

there are many truo ana warm hearted

came to the conclusion that the whiskey

a considerable quantity necessary for home
consumption. One incident or two, which
occurred thero, may probably havo caused
