The lawyer was dumb for a moment, bnt presently he and Mm. Kin loch both found breath for their indigna tion. The woman tnmed fii-st npon Mark. "This is yonr doing, sir !" "Yon tlo too much honor to my fore sight." he replied. "Iam heartily glad that my good friend here, was thoughtful enorjgh and ready to interfere for the pro tection of fatherless girl."

"Come, come !" said the farmer, "too lond talkin'l" "Then yon uphold this irirl in her nn dntiftil behavior, do yon ?" asked Mrs. KinWh. "Yon are amenable to the statutes, sir," said the Squire.

"I beg your pardon, sir," said Mark "bnt what was the appellation yon save to the laUv just uow ? Ion can call ns what yon like." "Mrs. Clamp, sir," he answered, with a porteatous emphasis "Mrs. Qiainp united to me, sir, this nioniintr, by the Reverend Mr. Rook, in the holy bands of matrimony. Thpy swept out of the house. Mildred sank to her chair as if stnuued. '0!i God !" she said, "my mother and father!" "Poor gal 1" sni i Mr. Alford, "nin ill contort you'll hov in sich psrt-nts. But chetr lip ; you won't need for friends." She looked up through her tears nt Mark's manly face, full now of sympathy, and blessed the farmer for his words. Mr. Alford. taking Maik asid said. "Yon know about Lucy's ninuiu' away, mot likfly. Wal, now, ef he could If found, titer's no know-in' wh:tt mii;lit hap pen, for it's my opinion sho knows about Squire Kinloch's affairs. I thought you mijtbt 'a seen her in Yoik ?" Mark replied that he did meet her in Broadway, late one afternoon, and that she looked as if she would speak ; but that he hurried on, for the flaunting style of her dress was not calculated to prepos sess the passers-by. "Good gracious ! yon don't say so ! Seen her yourself ? Now do yon go right back to York an' hunt ber np no matter what it costs." "Bnt my unciy?" "We'lflook arter him." It was speedily determined, and M'tk set ont the same day. Meanwhile, Mil dred had promised to go and sea Mr. Hani w ick aud endeavor to make Lim cheerful. "It beats all," said Mr. Alford to bis wife. "Now 'f he should find that nn foit'nate gal ! Wal. wal, I Itogin to think the Lord does look arter things some, even in this world." We leave Squire Clamp and his new wife to their happiness ; it would not be well to lift the decent veil which drops over their household. The dark, per chance guilty, past the stormy present, anil the retribution of the future let memory and conscience deal with them ! CilAPTER XVI. " Never was a little village in greater commotion than Innisfield, after Mark's departure. The succession of events had been such aa to engnge the attention of the most indifferent. The mysterions ex ile of Mildred, the failing health and spirits of the blacksmith, the new rumors respecting tho fate of Lncy, the sudden and unaccountable marriage of Mrs. Kin loch, and her frnitlejw attempt to bring her danghter back, were all dincnssed in every house, aa wel' as in places of pub lic resort. Hugh Branning was soon con vinced that the village waa no place for him. He had horse-whipped a cripple, but be conld not stop the tongues of the wholo parish, even if he conld protect himself from swift and extempore justice. He gathered his clothes, and, after a long, private conference with hia mother, start ed before daylight for the railway station. As he does not appear on the stage again, we may say here, that, not long after, daring a financial panic in New York. h made a fortune of nearly half a million dollars by speculating in stocks. He nsed to tell his friends in after years that he had "onlv five thousand to begin with the sole property left him by his lamen ted parents." He has now a handsome mansion in' the Fifth Avenne. is a con spicnons member of the Rev. Dr. Hold fast's church, and most zealous again! the ill-timed dwefissi.ins and philanthrop ic vagaries of the day. What would be not give to forget that slowly-moving fir nre, with swimming eyes, carryings fl.ir ing candle? Ha v far alonsr the years that feeble light was thrown ! He nevea went throni li the hall of his hoose ai night, without a shndder, dreading to catch glimpse of that sorrowing face. ; It vi on TnemUy evening, the flight proceeding the Probate Conrt t which Souire Clamp had been cited. Nothing had been beard from Mark, and bis friends were much depresxed. Mildred sat by Mr. Hard wick's bedside, durine the lotii; bourn, and read to him from hia favorite authors. About ten o'clock, just a the family were preparing to go to tied, Maik drove up to the door. Ha. was warmly welcomed, ami at once overwhelmed with questions. "Did he find Lucy !" "What did she know ?" "Why did she secrete herself ?" To all tliese Mark merely re plied, "I fonnd Lncy ; how much I have accomplished I dare not say. - But do yon. James, come with me. We will go op to old Mrs. Ransom's." "Why she's not there; she's gone to the poor-house." Broken down with old age and sorrow, I snppose. Bnt I don't care to see ber now. Let ns go to the old house ; and meantime, you girls, go to bed." but they protester they should watt till he returned that they could not sleep a wink until they knew the result. Provided with a lantern, the young men set out. 1 hey found tlie hovel nearly in ruins; for pilferers had taken such pieces as they could stnp oil for firewood. Mai k eagerly ripped up the floor near the hearth, At the first nali of the Iirlit he saw a paper, dusty and discolored. He seize.! and opened it. It trns the will vf Mr. kmtoch, duly tigncd and attested. Lucy had not iieceivc.1 In in. With hurried'pacc they returned to the vitiate, scarcely stopping to take breath until they leached Mr. llardtrick's house. It was no vain hope, then 1 It was true I The schemes of the step-mother would be frustrated. The odious control of Squre Clamp WDiiI.l end. Mark began to read the will, then stopped, emb aced his cous ins and Mildred by turns, thou read ngain. He was beside hinielf with joy. All were too much excited to sleep ; and when the first transports of surprise were over, they naturally inquired after tit.; unfortunate girl. He had found her, attor great diluVulty, in a miserable gar ret. The surmises of tho villagers were i-orrect. She was ruined, heart-broken. Dissipation, exposure, and all the fright ful influences of her wretched life had brought on a fever, and now, destitute and forsaken, she was left by those who had made ntfi-chan.li..eof ber beauty, to die. lie trained from L'n-y what she k.imv of the affair of the will. She became satis fii'.l, soon after Mr. Kinloch's death, -that ome wrong was intended, nud she watch ed her mistre.-s. Then Squire Clamp had induced her by. threats aud bribes lo get for ti i in the papers. As she took them out of the desk, one, I tiger than the ret, an I willi several seals, attracted her at tention. " She felt quite sure it was Mr. Kinliwch's will ; so bhe secreted it and gave the lawyer the rest. The Monday afternoon following, she took the will to her grandmother's and put it under a plank in the floor. Squire Clamp, strangely enough, chanced to stop just as she had l.lltlain tf I T a f,.va1iij, l,..-lr tin. .iniinpii ......... .v. .. J,"'"- "- "v J" " as she supposed, anil she replaced then in the secietary. On ber way home, she fell in with Hugh a day neither of them would ever forget. The lawyer, who had counted on easy victory over Mr. Alford. was greatly sur prised the next day, to see him accompa nied by Mark, as he came into conrt ; he had not heard of tho young man's retnrn. Bsideai thier unmistakable air of confi dence ami exultation caused him some misgivings. But he was boldness itself, compared with his wife. Her face was bloodless, her hands tremulons, and her expression like that of one ready to faint. Imagine the horror with which fche saw the production of the will, and then the proof by ;he only snrviving witness, brought to court from his residence in a neighboring town ! The letters of ad ministration were revoked, and Mr. Al ford. one of the executors, was appointed Mildred's guardian. Completely baflied, dumb and despairing, Squire Clamp and his bride left the room aud drove home ward. A pleasant topic for conversation they had by the way, each accusing the other of duplicity, treachery, and folly I The will provided that she should receive in annuity of-one thousand dollars fur- iny her tridvtchood ; so that the Squire, by wedding her, had a new incumbrance without any addition to his resources ; a bad bargain, decidedly, he thought. She, on the other hand, had thrown away her snre dependence, in the hope of re taining the control of the whole estate ; for when she consented to marry Clamp, she had no doubt that he had possession of the will, and would, ef course, keep it concealed. Seldom it is that both parties to a transaction arc so overreached. The successful party stopped at Mr. Hardwick's that evening to exchange con gratulations. He, as well as Mildred and Mark, was interested in tne lost wi.I ; tor Mr. Kinloch had mentioned the fact of the unsettled boundary-line, and directed his executors to make a clear title oi the disputed tract to the blacksmith. Ibe shop was his ; the boys, at all events, would lie undisturbed. One provision in the will greatly excited Mark's cariosity The notes which he owed to the estate i were to le cancelled, and there was an unexplained reference to his Uncle Hard wi'-k, aud to some occurrences of long ago. Mildred at once recalled to mind Ii.r father's dying words his calling for Mr. Hard wick, an I his mention of tlie c ibin-t. . She had of en thonjjht of her searvh. in its drawers and of her finding tlie lock of suinny hvran l lhadrieil, flow er. And the blacksmith, now, when ask ed, shook hi hesd mournfully, and said, (a he had before,) "Sus-some time; nnn not now !" .. . ;. - -'. (COaTCtCSIO XIT WOK.)

The husband came to this Territory about a year since and located ; and now, having retnrneil to Indiana Tor his household gods, was bringing them to their new Western home. They were travelling in a wagon.' closely covered. and drawn by two horses. They had been about two months on the way, and since reaching the State of Missouri had "camped out," or lodged in their wagon. not spending a single night nnder a roof. The wife was a genial, apple-faced wo man, of about thirty ; -and like the chil dren, (two little girls, one of three, the other of six years.) seemed to enjoy a degree of health and vigor very nnnsnal among American ladle. When we met them the weather was exceedingly severe; the ground was covered with six inches of snow, and the thermometer stood be low zero. They camped near ns for one night ; and persisted in lodging in the wagon, though tee fonnd it very difficult to keep warm in a good log hoose. where bed clothing was plenty. In the morning. on going ont to the wsgon, I fonnd the children and the mother bothjn excellent spirits. In reply to my qnestion whether they had suffered from the cold, she said. Oh, no ; we are nsed to it The journey has been rather tedious, bnt we are almost home now." She looked forward to their rude squatter homo as cheerfully and hopefully as if it had been a palace. The hardihood of Western women is certainly remarkable ; it is unquestionably the re sult of much exercise in the open air. - Parsos BnowNixw Ste-mso CP for Himself. The Rev. W. G. Brownlow announces that he is hereafter to be a pub lisher as well as editor of the Knoxville (Tenn.) Whig. His policy, both econ omical and political, is thus set forth : . I will not send a paper ont ot Knox County without payment in advance, and I never will asain employ a collecting agent, and thereby force any man, made in the image of God, to do as mean an act as that of repudiating a newspaper subscription.

He was speaking ol some of the infamous laws passed by the Pro-Slavery Legislature of Kansas, and after qnoting one of them, made the following comment : "If any person print, write, introduce into or publish, or circulate, or cause to be bronght into, printed, written, pub lished or circulated, or shall knowingly aid or assist in bringing into, publishing or circulating within the .territory, any book, paper, pamphlet, magazine, hand bill or circular, containing any statements, arguments, opinion, sentiment, doctrine. advice, or innuendo, calculated to produce a disorderly, dangerous or rebellious dis affection among the slaves in this Terri tory, or to induce such slaves to escape from the service of their masters, or to resist their authority, shall be deemed guilty of a felony, and be punished by imprisonment, at bard labor, for a term not less thsn five years."

Appendix to the Globe, 1st Sest., SUA Cong., p. 101. Death of Mavrocordato, the Greek Statesman. Advices of recent dste from Greece, announce the death. of Prince Mavrocordato, a patriot Greek, who has been prominent in the affairs of his coun try for many years, and whose name has been familiar to our readers through co Umporary literature particularly the adventures of Lord Byron, as related by himself, by Dr. Kennedy, Moore, Trclsw ney, and others. He was'eogaged in the Greek Revolution, and organized a pro visional government for Western Greece. He fortified Missolonghi aganst Kurshid Pasha's army, and withstood several Turkish attacks. It was here that Boz zaris fell fighting, and Byron died from the malaria of the marshes of tho low lying plain. lie was in a great measure the creator of the Greek Constitution, and was the first President under it.' Af ter Greece was 'transformed into a king dom, Mavrocordato continued prominent, and was once minister to England. With Mavrocordato, dies another link which connects us with the age of Byron and Shelley, when Greece and Greek lit erature, tonrs, history and poetry were the height of the fasuion. The Freeman's Journal, of New York city, one of the warmest advocates of Mr. Buchanan's election to the Presidency, says : - - 'The rebuke of the late election is se vere, bnt salutary. We are pleased that it has been measured out with no moderate hand. Our only desire has been that the true principles of the Democratic party shonld be vindicated, and relieved from the contamination of the spurious and an ti-republican vagaries of the present Executive. " We have for some time ceased to regard James Buchanan as a Democrat. He is a Federalist to his heart's core. He has betrayed his highest trust, or proved eqnal to it, and has war red with an insane bitterness a-rainst the party that elevated . him to office. Not only has he endeavored to rob the party of its dearest principles, but he has vio lated the fundamental theories of the Gov ernment in striking madly at the Repre wen'atives of the people ; and with his bribes ia Kansas proffered to the constit uency, and his rewards of oSos bestowed on recreant favorites, be has mads an epoch which will not soon be forgotten, and onght not ever to be." - - -.-.

Ax Isdias's Omios or Hoors. Not a thousand miles from this place, a short time since, a company of young gents ith their "lassies," made a visit to an Indian camp, more (or the pnrpose of having a private talk, undoubtedly, than seeing tho red men of the forest. Among the gay compsny I snd the gayest and most fashionable of the number.) was bright-eyed, blooming young lady of eigh teen summers, who was dressed in the breadth of the fashion, and securely guarded on all sides by a broad expanse of crinoline, "voluminous and vast. She was leaning on the arm of her "true lover," looking as bright snd blooming as the early dawn of a May morning. and feeling as happy as a lark. The com pany were standing in frout of a "lodge" in which lay an old Indian Chief, quietly smoking his kinnikenick.

Prof. Morse's estimate of the Atlantic telegraph was. "that it would be easy to telegraph from Ireland to New foundland at the speed of at least eight or ten words per minnte. 1 ake it at ten words in the minute, and allowing ten words for name and address, we can safely calculate upon. the transmission of a twenty words message in three minutes, cr fourteen thousand fonr hundred words per day.'' f this estimate is realized, the cable will offer ample facilities for all present de mands upon it. 1 he charges being one dollar per word, it wonld seem to promise a fair remuner ation 814,400 per day. AU the expense of sending out men on horseback to repair the line will be dis pensed with, probably.

In the coarse of his address, as we learn from the correspondence .of a cotemporary, the following rminisctivee was given : . The commencement of Douglas speech was very appropriate and well spoktin. He said if there was one place he Bad a right to claim as his home more than an other, it was that place. Twonty-five years agj, said he, a poor boy, with his coat npou his arm, without an acquaint ance in the State, aud without a dollar iu his pocket ho entered this town. Here he earned his first six dollars ; here her first learned to depend npon himself for hil livelihood. Yon were first to assist him, and take him by the band. Yea were the first to promote him, and confer honors npon him. After twenty-five long years have pass ed, after many changes have taken place, that boy again returns to yon, to thank yon for your former kindness, and the high trusts and honors you have conferred npon him, and to ask yon if he has jet done anything to incur your censure ; if he has violated the trusts reposed in him.

Sir Rxlerick Murchison, presented at the recent meeting of the British Association, a communication from Dr. Livingstone, showing the mischief done to the cause of progress and civilization in Africa by the revival of the Slave trade. He states that all the hopes entertained of introdu cing the culture of the cotton plant, sni training the natives to the arts of peace -and tho culture of commerce, have beert chocked by the wars to which tbe slave trade has given rise. Tlie disorganization is so great that it would-be thinks, aiprs ent, be imprudent to trust the natives oil the Zambesi with the elements of im proved sgriculture intended for tbera. 4 The field in which he promised him self a rich harvest has been Mddtalv converted into a sconce of conflict ; ,snT this evil, of which Dr. Livingstone com plains, is attributed, in a great degree, to tbe sanction which the French Em per of has given for tbe practical rttablMhrDeot, of the slsve trade between the cost of Afr rica and the French West India colonies."
