lew mouths after. With le Mornie
r-he lived happily for nearly live
vest's, when her husbaml went blind
and killed himself. She again re
turned to England . On the voyage
over, Uobei't Shaffer, the captain of
the packet on which she had crossed
four times, confessed to having loved
her from his tirst glimpse of her, and
that when she returned the second
time, deserted and betrayed, delicacy
had prevented him from love mak
ing. Now no obstacle intervened
and the lady yielded, marrying him
a vear after He Mornie's death. l'or
three years she lived on the packet,
of which her husband was part own
er as well as captain. Hut in Octob

wrecked, her husband drowned with
all but three of his crew, w ho escaped
with Mrs. Shatter on a raft.
On a K:ifr.
On this raft Mrs. Shafter's little
daughter. Elizabeth, was born. Two
hours after the raft was hailed bv
the mate of the Storm Queen, an
Enj;lih sailing vessel, which had
also been blown out of her course.
Fortunately the captain's wife was
on board, and was able to extend the
sympathy and assistance of a woman
to her." Mrs. Shafter was set
a-hore at Dover, from where she
went to her mother. Her husband's
life insurance money amounted to
t.'-.. Oi M. of which she divided a fifth
among the sailors who had saved her
life in the going down of the packet,
and, her mother dying soon after,
she came to America with some
friends, who settled near Davenport,
la. Here Spencer Hofhwell, a young
man of means apparently, fell des
perately in love with her. She de
clared that she had hail enough of
marrying besides, lie was three
years younger than she. On his
throating to kill himself she agreed
to marry him. Within a year the
man began to complain of the life in.

settled on the child and to insist on
its being turned over to him. His
wife refused. Bothwell began to
abuse the little girl, and at last go
ing to the police of Denison they
had removed to Texas shortly after
their marriage she tiled a complaint
against Hothwell. who was arrested
and committed to jail, where he lay
for a month.
In the meantime another and more
serious charge was brought against
him by a merchant of (iainesville,
and being tried for this latter, hewas
sent to the penitentiary. His wife
availed herself of the law which freed
her from a convicted husband, and
took the name of Huntington, which
had been Hothwell's real one. The
divorced wife removed to New Or
leans, where she has supported her
self by giving music lessons to chil
dren of the poorer classes, living a
very ouiet, secluded lite. A few
months ago she met Mr. Hlooming-
lale. a retired English banker, who
resides in St. Charles street during
his yearly stay in America, going to

bv a proposal of marriage. Mrs
Huntingdon honestly recited to him
her eventful life, and though rather
nonplussed by the knowledge that
six other husbands had wooed and
won the lady, he finally declared that
it made no difference to his love, and,
overcoming the widow's objections,
he persuaded her to marry him at
