"Undying Love?An Act in Five
[ContilltKil from last trcek.~]
"But there are two diflicuitiofl in
your way. Either they will notice
two stars, communicate with each
other, nnd arrange differently, or two
will meet him at the window, which
wou'd he rather awkward, and en
danger a public expose."
"But you, Herbert, and A.If m n I
detain bor in n distant part of the
I room till I am gone. I will keep tba
I star concealed until I see the white
rose ho is* to wear, for lie will only
reach the ball-room at the appointed
hour, and will enter at the door ad
jacent to this window."
''Well, we can but try, but, poor
child how she will feel to think him
false when be professed "undying
love,*' as you said."
"Yes, but the good will overbal
ance the misery, and no one evor
dies for love; besides she deserves lli3
mortification for her indirfcrcmcQ c.->
such a noble fellow as Duke, who,
though, he doesn't quote poetry and
sentiment, loves bur far more than
this superficial A?1 onis. And now,
we must hurry und impart our plans
to your Herbert and my Alf, so as to
st cure their co-operation."
What is more enchanting to the
lover of pleasure than the masquer
ade? Relieved from the stricter rulea
of etiquette, and allowed the full in
dulgence of taste and imagination,
oociety revels in the scone "contrived
by n wanton fancy, pleasure-spoilt.',
Bewitching forms flitted through the
lialla to still more bewitching music,
the night after the conversation re
corded above. There u dark Gypsy
fjirlexamined mysteriously the hand
passe* h)^ <m the arm of n
courtier of Charles II., then a gloam
und glitter and d cloud of misty
splendor floats by. The stars that
glow, and scintillate in the radiant
light, the pale crescent on her brow,
proclaim the beauteous quccu of
night, attended by a. tall watchman.
This must be Leonora, icr no other
stars are visible, and that figure near,
robed in fleecy white,?that is Clara,
but no silver star g-itteis in her
tresses, as the spirit of purity requires
no ornament; nnd that is her lover,
Alf Snyinon, a distinguished man in
his circle, and well dues the princely
crown become bis noble brow. The
glowing hours pass by with noiseless
tread, and the hour of one draws near
ihi'Mi Clara grows tired and must be
conducted to the en-a window to rest.
Half past twelve, iifteen to one. After
escorting the queen oi night to her
throne at tho west end of the hall,
the watchman disappeared. At this
time, May, attended by Herbert
Langley, moves across the room to
whcie Leonora is ftirrouudcd by
several worshipers. Alf Say mo 11
also moves in tho .-nine direction,
and, making an obeisance to the
queen, requests that he may have the
pleasure of leading her into the
dunce, but the pleads lutigtie. Then
they 101 in a circle uround her and
engl ge in tiu uuiumlcd conversation,
though her annoyance is very evi
dent. Lconru consulted her witleti
secretly, and as the time passed, be
came very pule. J-ome one noticing
her pailor, slie asked in a very luiui
voice that the might be conducted t
the window on the opposite sine to
I reach the uii, hut All insisted that it
was too cool, while Herbert fanned
her, and May dispatched a courtier lor
a glass of wale)-. Irresolute, she
was thus detained until a gentle.oau,
who had been stationed near the
window, sauntered up with a smile on
his lips, which was the signal that
Clara was gone. Then moving aside,
Leonora passed hastily through,
reached tho window, looked eagerly
around, glanced at her watch?ten
miuutes pnst two--surcly he would
have waited that long. Slowly the
minutes dragged by, and at length at
three o'clock tho truth forced itself
upon her that he had Jailed to come.
A possibility of his deceiving hor, had
never entered her mind and we leavo
her standing at the window, staring
blankly out), to see what bad become
of her truant lover.
After leaying Leonora, the Span
iard hastened ton remote part of tho
city, entered his boarding house,
hastened along the passages,! and
dashing into a room where a gentle
in an was reading exclaimed, "Con
gratulate me, Edward, I'm the hap
piest man alive!"
Slowly Raising his eyes front his
book bis (ompaniou said, "So you
have persuaded Miss Felton to elope
with you ?" "Yes; to-morrow night
wo runaway from a gruel fate that
threatens to separatc'us."
"Alphouso," and Am friend spoke
.??criously, now, ' have )ou thought
about what yo i are going to do ?
With the rejjkleas dash of a boy, you
are going to take a lady away from
her homo where she was tenderly
cherished, and expo o her to the vicis
situdes of your fortune. What can
you offer her in exchange f?r what
6he leaves? rCan your companionship
compensate ' ler for all she enjoys as
the petted daughter of an ind ulgent
parent tho beloved of a hir^e circle
of friends, and a stranger to sor row?
You are too thoughtless to take this
responsibility on yourself. Why she
should cousmit, I cairot imagine."
"Am I so unattractive, then, that
she could not love me ? For it is
lovo alone that- piompts mo to this
act. How fortunate I am to secure
such a loveiy prize for which so many
have sighed in vain?how proudly
can I trimpb over my haughty rival,
"Suppose'Lthc young la ly is IlirL
tbe bright star of my destiny, whose
lovely radiance is undimmed by any
deceitful glamor. The world would
be a blank without her. I have no
hope that di es not dream of her, no
joy that is not shared by her."
Seeing that argument was wasted,
Edward Gleasou discussed the plan of
elopement, and promised bis assis
tance in securing a boat.
Late the following evening, array
ed as Charles IV., Alphouso started
for tho ball. Reaching the hall, he
passed quickly through the conserva
tory and to the door by the cast win
dow where Clara was waiting for him.
As soon as the white rose made its
apporancc, she hastily fastened the
silver star upon her hair, which at
tracted the graceful m march t > her
side. Bending over h*?r hand, he
whispered, '-Will my beauteous star
transfer its light to my cheerless
home?" Speaking very indistinctly,
Clara placed her hand in his arm.
an?l urged an immediate departure,
lest they should be thwarted So
hastening out, they entered a carriage
and were driven with all speed to the
river. As Alphouso assisted loir to
alight, with exultant tones ho said,
?'And now, my darling, we take fate
in our hands, and laugh at the* a in
efforts of those who would ruthlessly
sever two loving hearts!"
"Not if I can prevent it," and a
tall form emerged from the shadow
Ks tending his hands, Duke Sylvester
exclaimed. "Leon- ra, my love, come
uith me?this is as taras 1 can per
mit you to go."
The ^opposed ? eotiora took the
pr lie red arm, was hurried into
another oarraigu, and whirled rapidly
uway, leaving the young lover stand
ing in an astonished stupor, w aching
the carriage Ho did not recover
Iroin his umuzement until Edward
touched him upon his arm ami ashed
why wa> he alone in the dark, where
was his star. Shaking off his friend,
Alphouso muttered indistinctly, and
stalked away with dark and lowering
Clara Forsyth and Duko Sylv ester
soon reappeared at tho masauerado.
Hurrying to the window, the watch
man for the second time that night,
offered his nrm to the queen of night.
Tuking it mechanically, Leonora
again joined the revelers, but oh!
what bitter thoughts surged through
her excited brain.
"No one knows it, and he dares not
boast of it," she thought, nnd bocame
the gayest of the gay, while Duke was
only too glad to bestow the attenti ?na
she no longer disregarded. The next
afternoon when they were out riding,
May and Clara Forsytb, with Her
bert Lungley and Alf Saymottr,
laughed merrily over the elopement.
Alf declared he felt jealous when
Clara amused them with an account
of her ride, and her efforts to avoid
the caresses intended for Leonora.
A Iphonso was loo indignant to re
main in the city, so loft, an I remain

Several years late r, one evening
Duke and Leonora .Sylvester were
sitting quietly by their fireside. They
bad been silent for some time, when
Duke asked, "Leonora, what ever be
came of your lover Alphonso?"
Flushing painfully, she replied, 'T
neither know nor care."
He then gave her an account of
Clara's elopement. She was pio
voked at first, hut finally, it seemed so
laughable, she joined in her husband's
"Duke, I didn't think you'd prac
tice such deceit. Why did you ?"
"Oh 'you know I'd have done any
thing to win you, nnd save you from
such desperate, thoughtless folly. See
here, a paragraph in this paper states
t hat Alphonso 1> elntivn was arrested
for being imp ieated in a drunken

voice, "Does my wife regret the

Then gazing in the fire for awhile, she
continued, "How foolish girls are!

A Singular Incident i:i Court.
One ofthe strangestspeclaclesevpr
witnessed in n judicial tribunal was
seen in live Stiprei?e Court yesterday.
It was the presence of six children,
charged with murder, who were
brought before the grave and digni
fied Supreme Judges upon ixhulws
corpus. '1 here were four boys aud two
girls, aped between nine and twelve .
years, whose names are given in the
???ttular report of the court prouced
. .gs. These children are from Edgo
field, and were represented by Messrs.
J. C. and O. Sheppard, who succeed- .
ed in obtaining hail for them in tho .
sum (?f 63,000.
The alleged murder took place
under tho following circumstances. "
In the vicinity of Ridge Spring,1 in
Edgcficld County, lives a Mr. Fallow,
fntber of four aud guardian of the
other two children. On% the 1st of
December, these six children were
picking cotton in a field adjacent to
bis bouse, when a n 'gro boy about
sixteen or eighteen years old, who
bad been warned not to come on tho
premises, made bis appearance among
them, and began to mail rent and
abuse them. A general fight ensued,
in which the white children succeeded
in prostrating the negro, nnd one of
them struck him with a rock in the
t emple. The mother of the negro
interfered, and another person took
charge of the white children and'
shielded them from the infuriated at
tacks of the negro's mother, until

Tho negro boy was found to bo
seriously injured, nnd from neglect of
bis mother, it is alleged, he was per
mitted to undergo cxpo-ure, from
which he died.' in seven days. On
Saturday last, the six while children
were arrested and carried to jail in
Edgeficld, charged with murder, and
were brought before the Supremo
