Two women sat together at unet
In the Krch door of a white cottage
that etood under Ita " old ancestral
tree "and amonar ita fields of wheat
and corn, like a poet's vision of a
quiet routine-place for some weary,
suffering human soul. .
And one or tiieae two women had
eyes to aee, ears to hear, and a heart to
reel and appreciate It all. Hhe was a
tall and stately lady, apparently some
thirty years of age not exactly hand
some, but witn a grace or air and
manner peculiarly her own. The
careful toilet, the nameless nir of ele
gance and luxury, t he pale cheek, the
aoft white hands betrayed the city
dame. While the weary glance in
her large, dark blue eyes, which even
the pleaxant quiet of that sun-set
hour could not drive away, showed
that time had not dealt gently with
her and her heart's Idols, but had
thrown them, shattered and ruiued,
at her feet. ,
Iler com pan Ion was som e fl ve years
her junior, and many times prettier:
a little round-fucef, apple-cheeked
woman With dark bluecyea and dark
brown hair, and a rounded figure that

was set off to the best
the afternoon dress of the tinted mu
lin that she wore. . .
At present the pretty nice was al
most spoiled by a querulous, dlecon
tented expression. She was contrast
ing her own hand, plump and small,
hut certainly rather brown, with the
slender white fingers of Tier city
friend, all glittering with rings. "Just
look at the two I" she exclaimed.
"That comes of making butter and
cheese, and sweeping and dusting,
and washing dlslien, anil making beds
all the time. That man told the
truth that said Hint woman's work

princess in a fairy tnle : and here I
am planted for life, plain Mrs. Hiram
Parke, and notmog in tne world to
compare witli you. I am sick of be
ing a farmer's wife."
Margaret van llowtli looked down
at her grumbling little friend with a
sad smile. .

over an mese nieasani neius mat are .

Perhaps not. Would you not like
to chnmre with me?"-
" And be Mrs. Van Ilowth. Instead
of Mrs. Hiram Parke?"
Jennie hesitated. She dearly loved
her nandsome niiHimnd
Well, I don't mean that I want
to give up Hiram. I only mean that I
I wish he wasa rich merchant Instead,

She arose from her seat and strolled
up the garden path. '
Jenny did not follow, filie sat on
the step lout In thought. The riddle
of her friend's life was at laat made
clear to her. . She had often wondered
why Margaret, In the midst of all her
wealth and luxury, should seem so
:sad. , Hhe wondered no lo niter now.
To be the wife, of a man who had
no love foryou ! What " lower deep"

I sensitive woman ? i .-..
Jenny turned with tears In her eyes
to meet the stalwart husband aa he
came from the field.
" Well, little woman," he cried,
and then she got a hearty kiss for
which she was looking. '
Yes, Margaret was right The but
ter and cheese were of little conse
quence while lave like this made her
task easy to endure.
And the rony-cheeked little woman
bent fondly down over her " Hiram,"
as he flung himself down on the porch
seat, and fanned him, talked to him,
brought him lemonade, and made
him thoroughly happy and at rest.
Poor Manraret I Happy Jennv?
iNever again would she wish to be
more only a " furmer's wife."

Few of the residents in the lower
part of tlie city of late years but are
lamiiiarwitu some of the, incidents
we . are now rclatinir. Thev have
often seen In the twilight of summer
evenings a singular apparition. Sua
denly, oh the banquette of Music
street nas appeared an old man, with
long gray hair, aud olaj in the cos
tume or nan a century aero. The
garments were faded and worn, but
revealed a richness which In earlier
days was more fitted for a court than
an American metropolis. He was a
very tall man. aithouirh a hunchback.
and but for the deformity would have

breadth of shoulders, tlie deep power

sided marvelous strength, while the
lower limbs, fashioned in magnificent
strength aud beauty, arrested atten
lion arm commanded' admiration

no one, looked at no one. but iu silent
ausiraution pursued his lonely walk
far into tlie n lit lit. Years went bv.
and night after night little children
paused in their play to watch the
recediug figure of the lonely man,
It must have been forty years ago
that he first came among us. lie
looked middle aired then : but as the
years new by tlie sturdy frame re
mained flexible and active, but the
hair grew gray andhis face was seam
ed with wrinkles.
He lived In a little brick building
mat set uucic irom the street, wild
vines crept over the crumbling tiles
and wreathed fantastic shapes on the
chimney tops. In the yard beautiful
flowers bloomed all the year round,
and their rich perfume made the air
sensuous and sweet. . At a window
shaded by a trellis work, hid in the
bloom of roses, the old mau sat of
afternoons and watched the sun's
deoliue. No one else was ever seen
in tlie house no one ever crossed the
threshold: and so ha lived, a smile
leas, sad old man, In a lonely house.
liut nne day, not a great wli ilo 1 noe,
the neighbors saw that the blinds In
the house were closed. The old niau
had not appeared, on the street for
weeks, and the grass hail begun to
grow from the chinks of the marble
slabs at his door, and it began to be
whispered about that the old man was
. At last, one day, tlie neigh Ivors
went In (they were poor people, but
kindly aud true). Sure enough he
was uuau. hi lay pallid and stark ou
a panel of straw. There were a few
scattered chairs around the room and
a plain laoie. une only object ar
rested the eye : Near the body was a
rich casket, set I n mother of pearl and
gold. Jewels flashed from the costly
lid, and wreathed In the duat of
diamonds were engraved the "Lille

following remanco of the early days
of Hfcvlsalppl, a romancVln which
the eloquent, aconmptished and (hscl

spicuous part t I.-- '
- The arrest of Aaron Burr, at the
mouth of Cole's Creek, bv order of
Cowles Mend, acting Governor of
Mississippi Territory, and hlsarratno i
ment in the old town of Washington
on uie ciiargo nr. treason, me aeir-
possession, ability and tact he ex
hibited and the favorable Impression
he made ou the eommunitv arn ail
wen rememoered Histories! Incidents.
He was discharged on giving bond
for his appearance, and bis principal
bondsman was Colonel Benljah Os-
raun, n native or-a ew jersey, and
the comrade of Burr in tlie revolu
tionary war. He wasan old bachelor,
of handsome fortune, a hlgh-tonen
federalist In politics, retaining his
military habits, and was held In great
esteem. Colonel Osmun was ona of
the most practical and successful
planters; la the territory was the
first who commenced to improve our
ureen or nurses ana was renowned
for his hospitality, his table and his
wines. - ms beautiful estate extended
to the Half Way Hill. His Isndson
his death were purchased by the late
Gerard Brandon, and were given to
hisson-ln-Iaw, Colouel James Smith
ami Wm. Stonton, two of, our most
vaiusnie ciTlsens, now. deceased.
Here Colonel Burr resided some weeks
after his discharge, receiving the
visits of influential sympathisers, but
passing nts afternoons in the woods.
Tha Half Way HiiL.then clothed
with majestio trees, was his favorite
resort. liut its refreshing shade and

vme-coverea cottage, a -ridow lady
from Virginia, whose small term and
two or three slaves were the only re
mains of a large fortune. Her hus
band had converted his property into
money,- and on his way to this ter
ritory had been robbed and murdered
dv tne notorious Joseph Thompson
Hare, a more blood thirsty villain
even than the celebrated Mason. She
had but ona child, Madeline, who
must still be remembered by a few of
our older citizens as a miracle of
beauty. In form and feature. In irrao
and modesty, she was all that theold
masters have pictured of the divine
Madonna, er thatartlst ever dreamed
of human loveliness. Those that saw
her loved her, yet she was never con
scious of the sentiment until she
listened to Aaron Burr. , The family
were . Catholics, and - there Colouel
Burr went to meet, by appofntment
one of his numerous agents and cor
respondents, the Abbe Veil, a Jesuit
priest of remarkubleabllitv., He was
born in New Orleans in 1730, studied
at Paris, and became a member of the
Congregation of the Oratory;-' At the
dissolution of that body by the French
government, hereturned to Louisiana
and exercised the priestly function In
the parish of Attackapss. He sub
sequently returned to France. : It Is
probable that Colonel Burr, In his
projected Invasion of Mexico con
templated, securiug the Influence of
.me religious orders, and for this pur
pose had opened a correspondence

pointment at nisseciuaen nomestead,
At length, after canvassing his
situation with ' Colonel Osmun and
slxxther confidential friends, Colonel
Burr determined to forfeit his bond
aud makehis way to Pensacola. Oue
stormy night in February, 1807, lie
set forth, mounted on the favorite
horse of his host, and attended by
jerry, a raimrui groom, wno had or
tiers to go as far as Pearl river. Ur
lent as was the necessity for expedi
tion, Colonel Burr halted till daylight
at tlie widow's cottage, pleading the
beautiful Madallne to ho the com
panion of his flight. He promised
marriage, fortune, high position, and
even- ninieu at imperial honors, not
realising, even then, a fugitive and
branded traitor, the crushing down
fall that Impended over him. The
maiden rind given hlra her heart
she had listened to his witchery night
after night, and loved him with all
the fervor or a (Southern nature. She
would have followed him to the end
of the earth, and to the scaffold, and
her aged mother would freely have
given her to this most captivating
man for they looked on dim as a
deml-god but, as with most of our
Southern womm virtue and pro
priety were stronger than preposses
sion and passion, and the entreaties
of the accomplished libertine were
firmly " rejected.-. Baffled and dlsap-

with him the covenant and pledge of

erine's strove tn vain for her hand.
Fortunes and the homage of devoted
hearts were laid at her feet ; but the
maid or the Hair-way Hill remained
true to her absent lover ; the more so

her of his misfortunes and his guilt.
She lived on the recollection of his
