THE TWIN BROTHERS:
A STORY OR THE PLAGUE.
WRITTEN FOR THE TIFFIN TRIBUNE.
BY J. WALLACE BRYANT.
But the morning came without bringing
him tho day pasitcd on, and still he re
mained absent, tlmi adding proof to proof,
so thought Edward, of his guilt. The eve
ning twilight fell; a regular "old Virginia"
twilight, beautiful and gorgeous, and with
it caino letter from William, which un
raveled every mystery. With angry im
patienco Edward broke the eeal, but tlie
stern expression of his eye softened as
hoJ'read,; for it ' gentle peace-breathing
words were like oil cast upon the tempest
of hia wrath, and his fraternal lovo burned
with a brighter, purer flame than ever, as
he want oo ti peruse William's frank and
simple detail of his brief intercourse with
Viola. He described his first meeting
with her in the gallery of art, hia repeat
ed visits there in hope of again leelng her,
tho accident that had prompted the only
words he ever addressed to her; nor with
held the confession of the love with which
her beauty and her sweetnesa had inspir
ed hiin. Its went on to declare that he
had never taught her siuco, but when he
learned she was the destined bride of his
brotlii I, ho had' checked his pttcsioa' bl Us
very bud, and (.hat his strength ti right n6t
prove weakness, ho bad reaolw u to obey
the early inclination of hia heart, and join
church and prepare at once for the minis
try, lie touchingly besought Edward
cherish, as be ever should, the sacred af
fection that had united them in bonds clos
er than brotherhood, and to beware how
he suffered any evil report or unjust sus
picion to disturb it; entreating him with
all tlie earnest of a last request, not to de
lay hia union with Viola, beyond the pe
riod named fur its fulfillment closing
very affecting missive in this wise:
"To me, even were I not voluntarily
nouueing the tender ties and active engage
ments of life, she could never more be oth
er than a cherished sinter; and aa tlie be
loved of my brother's heart, whose hsppi
ness is dearer to me than my own, such
she must ever oontiune, to be.; Seek
dear brother to discover my retreat for
soon shall be far, for away but let time,
which touches all things with its obliterat
ing hand, pass gently on, and whon
are ablo to recall, without pain, what now
disturbs our peace, we will meet again.
The Rev. Mr. Btanhury, under tlie
of the strictest secrecy, is alone entrusted
with the knowledge of my retreat,
through hira we may sometimes hold com-
luuuion with each other. Sock not
move me from my purpose, it Is irrevoks
bly fixed therefore, my brother resign
yourself to it, and let tlie love of Viola con
sole you for my absence. I think of
aa an angel, bora I shall one day
in the realms of bliss; and ever fur
nited happiness, shall ascend the fervent
prayer of your faithful William
' Mary efforts were niede by the Stanley
family to discover the retreat of their
one, but all proved In vain. However,
through Rev. Mr. Stanlniry who
gnotl tlio aecrot ptnc"d In li'm trust titlingw
oflco came from William, anil tho falrn
Bd happy tone of his loiter uTartuallyl
aofVened th puljt nent rogTrU of hia nour-
ninjr ' parent. Edward alotic rcfUat'd to
be comforted rem rsc) for hi injustice to-'
ward his Hoble brother, and grief at thrir
endless peparatinn, prevroi unceaninrly
upon his mind, to the exiluslon rven cf
his love (or Viola.
In truth, he had not seen her sinre the
fatal birth-nijlit; and regarding her as the
causo of William's retirement from the
world, as it were, his feelings toward her
had undergone arcmarkahlo change though
there were) moments when her Image rose
in all its rmdiaiit loTeliness before hltn, and
his heart bowed beneath the mlyht of the
p.Kirm eho had inspired.
But Ue poir blighted flower, how
had she drooped and pined since the) day
on which she heard tho tidings of Wil-
linm' destiny " The, light and joy ofi
youth seemed fled Woven there was no
longer gladness in her languid smile: no
lightness In her step; no rose Of he'nlth
blooming In beauty on her cheek. . She
shrank from mooting Edward, his very
nam mentioned in her presence disturb-)
eel her painfully, and with earnest prayers
she besought hnr futhcr to restofa her to
the care of her aunt. At the marriage, at
Edvrard't request, wao at all events U be
delayed, "Mr. Moroland yielded a ready
consent to her wishes; the more willing
ly, as his own time and thoughts were at
that period engrossed by the public cares
and duties, which the political aspect of
the state rendered peculiarly arduous and
perplexing. i, r
BREAKING OUT OF THE PLAGUE.
We pass over a period of soino five years
of William's absence, a gap of time that
was marked by no Incident of espocial in
terest and proceed to note the ravages of
the yellow fever that broke out in the city
of N , some timo in Xd-17. Thoso who
familiarize themselves with tlie currant
news of the day, will remember how hun
dreds in a single day perished by this fear
ful scourge. Sufferings such as only have
a parallel in Uio history of the epidemic
of 1833, ensued, and both old and young
were swept away like locusts before a
northern blast. Nor was the family of
Sir William Stauley spared. Father, son,
kinsman and followers, all, all of that
patriotic band, sank beneath the pestilence.
The old man with his gray hairs, crowned
with wisdom and honor, and tho son, glo
rious in the beauty of his manhood, slept
together in death for from tho tender hearts
that loved them, and tho gentle hands that
would have closed with weeping love their
dying eyes. The last thought of the ord'
ent and affectionate Edwiird wae with his
brother, and while yet his mind retained
its consciousness, he dictated a few lines
expresdive of his dying wish and love:
" 'Ere you receive thosa, liaaoo. uay
dear brother, the heart of your dying J'.d
ward will have ceased to heat, and I can
not think of quitting earth's career with
out saying a few parting words. All of
our fated house, save you alone, my broth
er, will aoon sleep the sleep that knows
no waking, and I command you in the
name of your departed father, never to let
the name of Stanley perish. Therefore
ford uke your cloister, and call upon your
God for a dissolution of your vows, ond re
turn to the home of your ancestors, to
cherish the age of our bereaved and dor-
rowing mother, 'i' Come forth, my brother,
at the call of your dying Edward, and let
the lovo of tho blighted Viola consolo you
for tlie affliction of the past. Enter with
her, who was the carry ehoson of your
heart, into the holiest bond of earth, and
through the long line of your posterity
let the name of Stanley descend withthut
honor which it haa to much wont to do.
Farewell, dear William, my breath labors,
and the shadows gather before my fading
eight but blessed be God, t feel that
I can now ssy there is a world where we
shall meet again. With this new hope, I
shall remain even in death your loving Ed
This terrible postilence toon swept its
dork wings ovor the devoted city, and the
lovely and beloved withered beneath its
baleful shadow. Durk and silent stood
her dwellings and mausious, and nowhere
reigned greater desolation than within the
gorgeous halls of tho Morolunds. They who
had once diffused through them the sun
light of happiness, and who were at nerves
aad sinews to the groat moving clement
of tociety, now mouldered in their graves,
while in a darkened apartment of her ouce
joyoua homo, luy the stricken wife aud
mother of that lordly house, rapidly draw
ing near to the lust mysterious change
which separatee life from eternity. . An
aged servant moved stealthily about the
chamber, In performance of her duty, while
beside the bed knelt a young maiden, who
gently waved a fan of peacock's feathers
above the pallid face of tlio dying. A pro
found silence reigned in the room, inter
rupted at interval by the luhorcd respira
tion of tlie sufferer, over whose sunken
features a fearful change was gradually
stealing. The young and patient watch
er knew what it portended, but unused
the aspect of death, she could with diffi
culty repress the tubs that struggled Cur
escape. At length the stillness was bro
ken. The cold hand of the sufferer feeb
ly sought to clusp hers, and (he young
nurse observed with great euiution the
deulhly fuce that was turned toward her.
Even iu that moment the pale hps wore
loving1 smile as they parted to address her.
"(aod bless you, my child my sweet
Viola bltta you, fur the love have shown
to the deserted and bereaved, in ber hour
of sorrow and distress'. ' 3ry He preserve

A thrill of agony shook the deliealo
frame of Viola, and she dropped her feo
upon her hands to hide the gushing t'ars.
A dot p groan fVotn the dying lacty drew
her sttentioti, and springing up she bent
over heir in speechless anguish. The fea
tures Were teftlinj into the rigidity nf
death, but as Viola's warm tears ft 11 upon
her clammy brow, she looked up and said
with a faint smile, "I am pamlnff away, my
dhitghterj the angels- have come to hear
me on, and I shall soon enter that land
whore death It never knownthey aro
there and soon I shall see them again."
The Old lady spoke with much effort, while
Viola wept blttorly. Regarding her with
compassion, and striving to clasp her hand,
the patient continued, " '"' " '
"lie composed, my dear child, and do
not allow your gtief to take possession of
your better Judgment and reason. You
have been to me a great source of comfort
indeed, and my prayer Is that God may
give toyourdying bed the peace you have
shed around mine. But why-i " and
she paused, casting a look about the cham
ber, as though tearching for some object
hidden in its obscurity then in a feeble
tone sho resumed, "is he not hero? Why
came he not to close my dying eyes! ho
who) bn earth Is all that I iny now call
my own I But give him this my daugh
ter," and she drew a ring from her finger,
"it ia my marringe ring any to him- "
At that moment a light step crossed the
chamber a shadow' fell upou the bed,
and William stood beside his mother 1
"Thank God I it Is my ion I" exclaimed
the dying matron, as his arms enfolded
her, and lay motionless within her fond
"My mother, bless me I live for me I"
cried William. '
"God ordains it otherwise, my son you
have arrested my spirit's flight In timo to
bestow upon you a lasting blessing and
comniand." . ' 1 !
"God Most yon, mother; and, whon you
are gone, it will bo onto me as a new lifo
and the sweetest oarthly consolation to
fulfill your last wishes." 1 ' '
"My son, receive this token of rhy1 plight
ed faith to your rtohle futhcr," said sho
'taking a Hug frorii her finger, "and if his
memory be dear to you, placo it on tho
finger of one worthy to bear that honored
nimo to posterity."
"Cheerfully I obey you my vowt are
annulled- etm am JaowliowilI sustain un
tarnished the name to which the virtues
of my mothor havo added lustre, I bestow
this token of my lasting lovo and faith."
As he spoko, lid gently laid his mother
from his arms, and turning to Viola, plac
ed the sacred plcdgo of an inviolablo un
ion on her finger, and as ho marked it glis
ten there, he prossed her fondly to his
heart, and imprinted on her snow-white
lips tlio first warm klsa of plightod love.
To Viola, suffering aa the had, and worn
and weary as alio now was by her long
and constant vigils beside tho bed of ill
ness, it was a moment or over-powering
emotion, and sho fainted on tho breast that
through every chunge had loved her faith
fully and well. . William bore his preoiout
burdon from the room, and consigning her
to the care of the faithful servant, return
ed to his mother. Sho moved not at lu't
approach very quiet the lay upon the
p'llow, her lips parted with a smile of tri
umph that proclaimed the tpiriu' victory
over death It hud ceased to struggle with
the woct of earth, and wingod its blissful
flight to a world of rest aud joy. .
' A year after the death of William't
mother, Viola, who had been absent seek
ing health in a retired portion ot the ooun-
try, again returned to the ill-fated city of hei
prtu." William deserted not his native
place, for as a minister of the gospel ho
regarded his duty to stand fast and givo
what comfort lay in his power to Uio sick
and dying. However, letters passed be
tween them almost daily, and every one re
ceived seemed to add a new link to tho tie
that bound twq hearts together. Two
weoks later and at the gallery of art, w ith-
in the preciiits of which they had first be.
held and loved each othor, they plighted
their marriugo vows, and from that peace
ful shelter William led forth his gentle
bride; td grace the lordly balls of his pater
nal homo. And there, peace again visit
ed thoir stricken hearLs, and though the
swett familiar objects of their home awoke
fond memories of the deported to chasten
their bridal j y they were memories of
tender sadness, fraught with life's deepest
lessons, and rendered solemn to Uieir
hearts by tho stern teachings of death.
And thus the dear voices of the lout, float-

the perfumes of the flowers, spoke gently
to tlmir souls, and unsoaled their spiritual

antagonistic; and tho distinction is so
clear, the antagonism so palpable, that ho
who run may read, . 1 hia wo
urieliy to show.
Mr. Buchanan, In his letter of accent
ance aud in hia Inaugural Address, has
furnished the clearest possible definition
I'opular Sovereignty. In his letter of
acceptance he anya: "The people of
Territory, like those of a Stain, shall de
cide for themselves whether Slovery ahall
or shall not exist iu their limits;" and in
lua Inaugural ho says: "A rhfloronce of
opinion has arisen as to tho point of time
wnen trie poopio or a Territory shall de
ride this question for thcmolvea This
is, hnpuily, of but little importune?.
Thouirfi it has ever been mv individual o-
pinion that, under tho Neliranla-Kansas
act, the appropriiid) period will bo when
number of nclnal residents in IheTer-
shall justify the formation of a con-
eticulion With m View to Its admission as
State into the Union." This is I'opular
Sovereignty in the Territories. It recog
nises tho rxerciso by tho Territorial Leg
islature of every power consittit with
tho provisions of the Constitution, but It
does not recognlre Uio exercise of any
power inconsistent with the rights of the
people of the States, ia whom resides the
ultimate sovereignty oyer, as well aa the
ownershio of. all Urn. cuuimon terrii.irv
tho Ujiited Stute. i , i
Squatter Sovereignty, on the coutrary, '

recognizes the riirht of thoso men fwhat
ever may be their number) whrt may have
squatted on tho public domain in advance
of. the public surveys, and without tho
ownership of one aura of tho soil, to elect
a Legislature which shall undertake to
prohibit Shivery within a Territory, and
thus practically deprive nearly half of the
partners in tnis conicderacy ot titutes ol
the right of emigrstlng with their proper
ty to any portion of their vast and extend
ed domain. In other words, their Squat
ter Sovereignty confers on tho first set
tlvra of a Territory absolute and Unlimit
ed power over tho property-rights o(all
future immigration. . ., ,.
1 nils understanding tho mutter, we pro
claim, unhesitatingly, that, while we shall
ever advocate I'otmlar Sovereignty,
Wnflo thenns d.aetriiaa is j-akt,. oouaititu-
tional, and in conformity with the spirit
oi our institutions; tue oilier is uuiuat, un-
constitutional, and in violation of the e
quitlity of the Slates. The one is the doc
trine of the disorganizes and b itters, who
seek to divide and destroy tho Democrat
ic party, and witn it tlio Union.
It was in PiirHuiiiir ofthin train of thouirht
we were led into an expression which has
beon perverted to iiiobh the very oppos;to
of our intentions. We said, a fow dnvs
ago: Tho principles emblazoned on the
Democratic banner are, "Non-lntnrvon-tion,
by Congress or by Territorial Legis
latures, either to establish or prohibit Sla
very in tho Territories, and tho protection
of slave property therein, as lung as the
Territorial condition shall remain, by tho
Judiciary, under tho Constitution of the
United States." Tho plain meaning of
this Is, that Congress cannot, and there
fore should not, uttompt to establish or
prohibit Slavery iu any Territory, aud that
the Territorial Legislature, duriviug all
iu powers of legislation from Congress,
cannot, aud should not, attempt to estab
lish or prohibit slavery iu the Territories.
Hut sineo tin Constitttion of the United
States protects a'! of its poplo i:i the en
Joynient f all their rights pf property,
whenever they may bo found in a Terri
tory common to ujl tho Slutis, protootion
to that property is a duty of those invest
ed with the power of locul legislation. mid
it is tho duty of the Judiciary to set aside
any. unjrtcnaiy legislation wuicu ia calcu
lated to destroy or impair any right of
property. We consider these self-evident
propositions. But it Is suid, in some quar
ters, that the people of the N orthurn States
will not sustain this interpretation of the
CoWers of a people in a Territory. Jf this
o true (u'AicA we shall never believe,') the
people of the Northern States are ready
to set unido tho Com-titutioii, sot aside the
equality of the States, and present t their
brethren of tho South tho alternuto of
submission to dishonor, or tho vindication
of their rights over Uie ruins of the consti
tutional Union wkiuU they havo so long
cherished as a priceless heritage. Aud it
may be assumed as certain thut no people
trained to self-govi rnmcnt, and valuing
liberty above all other things, will contin

An Illinois Coal Mine on Fire.
' From the Fulton Com t-Jflll.) I.cdper.
Three weeks ago last Wednesday the
Coal bank ol Mr. I-iancU. Johnson, north
of Canton, was fired by person or persons
unknown; although, lie ililbrms us, he
strongly suspects who did It. The coal
was llred eeven hundred feet from the
mouth of tho bank, arid at a depth -of for-ty-livo
feet from tho top of the ground, in
one of tho rooms of tho bank, by taking
in greaso and tar, as was judged from the
smell irisuiiig'froin the place., Mr. John
son built a wall at the entrance to the
room twelve feot loiw and eighteen inch
es thick, and ao great was the heat that
none could work at It for any length of
time, Kightonn inches from the Drat wall
another waa built, of the same length and
thickness, and the space between tho two
walls wns filled with mud and mortar, so
as to preeludo the possibility of any air
getting to the fire, hopi ng thereby to hiii th.
er it out. By this deed of somo malicious
chap, who certainly deserves a residence
