THE TWO KUniOI. ' A year hd passed since Mrs. Gutone denvted her luxariom home' for tbe love of stranger. Meanwhile, her broken htarted husband had aonght assidnonsly for her ia that wiUemexs of houses and people. Once during tbe winter Le had mt Dr. Boyd and ancceeded in bringing him before the proper ' eothori tiea. Mr. Qastone conld prodnce no er iJeace except his aimpicions and the con-, tinued abtence of hi wife, and tbe Doc tor wu allowed to apeak in hi own de face.' -- Dr. Boyd stated that lie bad no secret!) topreserre; his conduct even bis heart open for innpection, and trusted that he should be able to prove himself what hi really was a man ofnnaullied honor; tktt the case of this gentleman is certain ly a bad one no one could sympathize with him more deeply than himself bnt h was mack mistaken in supposing "hi m lf to be the individual who had wrong i him, though no doubt in the present distracted state of tbe gentleman's mind, . tt some slight, though he, must con: tier it, very unfortunate resemblance ; wit, thank Heaven, he bad never : been Bate on the contrary was always re-j rkb'e for his qnickness of hearing and j perfection of his organs .of speech; that he had never yet been blessed with a JMy's love, and as to stealing children, he! pd at some fntnte period to repose i the midst of a blooming family but J "JPeMnt certainly he should consider tben quite an incumbrance; last of all.that thigaoHemanhad styled bim Dr. Boyd -- appellation to which be laid no oUim whatever, and atill less to tbe dis tragnuhed title either of divinity or med icine of both professions he wu equally 'gnorant ; that the name 'given him by, ba ttcellent mother was Cherson Pres.' wt ai ithtrii aenrice name which had nwer been dishonored, and he firmly be uw. never wonld be by him. : . .' : ' So positive evidence wm broo'gbt iist the base man. and he was acquit Zr: .

Then regard leu of tbe crowd whicV bad colcted about them, he walked slowly away say iiig to himself, ,'My wife ! , my child Oh, God.J that I might once more press them to my bosom.",.' . ,," Dr. Boyd, though . boiling with rage, had actually, 'trembled beneath' tbe' Eery eye and just imprecations of tbe man be had j so cruelly wronged", and be ' now waited impatiently away, muttering;' " "Be shall suffer for this, indeed be shall, the impudent rascal." Fearing that Jhe was matched he did not return home till after dark, and then by a com plicated and circuitous route. Thedwel ling'which he entered was not the same in which we saw Mrs.' Gaatone some months before, but humble, even mean in appearance. Three rooms two xf them sleeping apartments comprised theif present suite, and they procured their. meals at a neighboring eating house. It wm a sad mortification to the proud woman, when told that they must reduce their establishment,' but as they received no company, she consoled herself with the thought that change of place could not materially affect her. Her lover would still be with her, and though she could not 'but acknowledge that his presence gave ber less pleasure than formerly, still she fancied or at Ieut ' hoped, that, this would not last long. : She endeavored to realize the visions of bliss which her Im-. agination had pictured to ber, when the world should no longer stand between herself and the object of her pusion ; but alas J -too soon she found that they wera the wildest dreams. It wu some com fort that she had been allowed to retain Emily, for Ini loved her affectionately. ' Wben Dr. Boyd returned to .bis lodg ings, after bis pnblic interview, with Mr: GaKtone, he was in a slate of irritability and excitement, to which he had never, before yielded in ber presence. ' . "What is the matter ?" exclaimed she, u be entered the room where ' tea was waiting for bim. . ''Matter !" replied be, in a thundering voice ; "I have been insulted to my face, and you are the cause. Destruction and furies 1 I know not what prevented me from killing bim on the spot 1" . I the cause of what ? Rilled who ?" she cried, in terror, becoming deadly pale.; "Pray, talk to me so that I can Understand you, Walter." 'Your bnsband !" roared he; in the greatest rage ; "new do yon understand ? Sorely, a man must be mad or a fool, to raise such a row merely because his wife has gone. Two thirds of the men would gladly rid themselves of their wives on any condition.. I tell yon, Bella," if it had not been for you, I should not have been insulted and cursed befoie an im mense crowd of people ; you are the cause. Do you comprehend ?" :; ' - The terrified woman understood but too well. Fearing to irritate him still far ther she replied not,' bnt leaned her bead upon fhe bosom of ber child, and 'wept violently. Insulted pride, as well u out raged'aSection, caused ber tears. ;Vl .'Crying forever! that's the way with women and children," he again exclaim ed, angrily ;"bnt slightly recovering from this tempest of passion, he added,' "Come,1 Bella, give me some tea. ,1- have not dined yet, thanks to this miserable busi ness." v "Dear Walter," said she, soothingly, for she loved best and always used tbe aDDetlation he bore upon their first ac quaintance, "do not speak thus harshly to me. , Mj husband loved ,me---iouDt-les loves me still. .'.And oh! I know bow "his heart f earns to clasp bis child once more to his . bleeding, bosom 7, who would give years ef happiness to look, again upon ray boy.

I will yet have my revenge.' ' o V Bella approached,, and placing', Tiet hand "npon bis arm, said,' on a pleading tone; ,; ,. ,7; ' "No more of this.

The story of his wealth wu then untrue ; low far should aha believe bim ? . .- . r Walter aajd she, at length,, in a tone 01 remonstrance,, "i cannot -coneent to part with that silver ; will you have tbe goodness to redeem it immediately V, . . "Yoa cannot consent! well,, madam,' and what, if yon cannot f who asked you to content ? Am I to take upon myself all tbe care and expense of living in this way, and yoa, like a sheltered dove,' en joy it, without the least sacrifice ?'' "The time was, Walter, whea you deemed the sacrifice of my duties as . a wife and mother for your sake, sufficient to secure your life-long happiness. I cer tainly did not anticipate being "deprived of my personal rights." ' , '.. . "Bat the times are vastly altered, mad am r the wheel of fortune hu turned, and for tbe present we are underneath. . With or without your consent, I shall take the liberty to send the broker's boy for the articles parsed in this list. I have tbe happiness to wish you a pleasant evening, 1 madam. I shall not bo at home to night, and probably not to-morrow." Dfcguis- j ing himself, as he frequently did, be im mediately left the house. ' (i-' About an hour afterwards, a knock, wu heard at the door, and Emily usher-j ed into the parlor a lad with a large cov ered basket. Presenting the list, be said 1 that he wu "sent for the silver." Bella recognized the writing of her lover, and knowing that resistance was, vain, pre-, served the paper and the. card contained in it. When the boy had departed she carefully deposited them in ber purse, which also contained a few small bills the remnant of the money given ber by ber husband, upon ber departure. Hav ing made, these arrangements, she sent Emily with Ini to their bed-room, and burvine her face in her hands.. wept lonir and bitterly. She had sown a bed of tnorn could she expect to reap flowers therefrom ? . Of whom could she com plain ? Her lover ? Had he not already seen her fail in her highest duties and ob ligations, and could the accuse him of unfaithfulness in these lighter ones 7 A new source of anxiety had arisen, and aroused one of her strongest passions. Her lover had almost constantly, of late, requested of Emily those little personal attentions and services, which it had been her pleasure to perform, and ' in va rious ways bad established an intimacy with her, which alarmed. Mrs. Gutone. She trembled for the young and unsus pecting girl,, aad. nothing but Emily's most charming and child-dike innoceuee, prevented ber. from yielding to all tbe maddening fires of jealousy.. She however-decided upon sending her 'away,' as soon as she could procure a place for ber and a substitute for hereelf. With these thoughts, the nigbt passed slowly away ; she was too wretched to sleep. , 1 Late next evening. Dr. Boyd returned highly excited, and evidently having drank to excess. He had recovered hia spirits, and displayed with childUh eager ness and triumph, the money he had, woo piy-- ..: . , "I believe1 I wu very harsh to you, Bella," he said ; "life, and especially true love, seldom runs smooth there must be jars, yon know ; won't mind it, will you, .Bella ?" and he sought to take her hand, and bestow upon her those ca resses to which he bad formerly accus tomed her, , For the first time she invol nntarily shrank from them... She could forgive him, bat conld not easily remove tbe impression left by bis brutal violence. She replied, gently : . ',, : , i '" 1"! pardon you, Walter,. on one condi tionthat there ehall.be no new renewal ofjbese scenes." ,.: ' ' .7 T .Oh,. certainly not--certainly not," be" replied ; 'but tell me, , my sweet Bella, are yoa never lonely, when I am.

But yon will not again leave me, Bella you ihdll not, for I will watch' you day and night!",' and the wretched man knelt at the feet of his wife and sobbed with all the intensity of a broken heart. Une would have sup posed that he wu guilty, so tenderly did he entreat her never again to leave his presence. ' ' '. The wife wu subdued overcome. . She could not be deceived. . These were the tones of love.' ' Her heart yielded to them, and upon her knees she exclaimed "Forgive, Oh 1 forgive my cruel de sertion my long absence my consent ing to tbe deceit winch wu practised up on yon.

It is impossible for me to wait your retarn." Sirs'. Gutone entreated him not to leave her,, assuring him that Catherine eoald find the'children without difficulty, and In half an hour Ini would be in his arms'- He hesitated between his anxiety td go' and bis strong disinclination to partN with his wife. Tbe struggle wu severe, but soon over. Despatching An thonytheir giant footman with Cath erine, in case of any resistance, he persua ded himself to remain, but constantly' paced the room, in the greatest agitation, pausing now and then, to clasp bis wife in his arms, till some bitter recollection csused him to start from tbe embrace, and holding her at his arm's length, gazed fixedly into her face, murmuring: "You have been miserable ; yes, I see it." : At every sound he started, and sprang to the door to meet his child. At last she was in his arms clasped to his bosom and he wept over her. Catherine, too, was weeping over a handsome girl, to whom this scene wu a mystery. Mrs. Gastone, determined that, at all events, ber husband should not go to the place of her late abode, had trembled lest Dr. Boyd should by some moans prevent their departure ; but as he was usually absent at this hour, she hoped for tbe best.. Straage, inconsistent woman 1. even with the tears, the powerful agitation, the al tered ; features of her husband . before her all which revealed. ' unnumbered hours of anguish she still though of her lover, snd wished that she had sent aline, to give the cause of ber absence. . ' She was conscious of a strange, unaccounta ble sensation of relief, in removing Emily from his presence. ' She was infatuated ! Why .cared she now, on whom his love was bestowed? ' ' Catherine meanwhile took her dangbter to ber own room, that she might con verse with her freely. She learned that Emily bad often .been caressed by Dr. Boyd, in tbe absence from the room of Mrs. G., and with the simplicity of a child, she was already much attached to him. j "Thank God!" just in time to save my child 1" sbe exclaimed, again embracing her. "We will be no more parted;" end tears started afresh at the story of ber trials and her wrongs, in tbe house of ber aunt. That night, as bad been long ago her custom, Mrs. Gastrrrie sat by the bedside of her sleeping children.' She was, for the time, truly namble and penitent, and ber heart bled for tbe injuries she bad in Bided. Her husband came and drew her away, for he was unwilling that she should leave bis presence even a moment Had her life been one constant scene' of the most exalted virtue a continued se ries of noble deeds, or of sincere devotion to htm, he could not' hare been more kindly affectionate. He held her hands in his own, leaned his head upon her shoulder, and seemed like one after a long and wearisome journey, seeking repose in the friendship of his only friend. ','Adrain," whispered : she in a. low, sweet voice, "assure me once more that you do wholly forgive me. ' Am I the same to yoa m before a wife 1 Bella, my own Bella, why do you speak of it ? Yoa have erred, but you have suffered, too. All . is forgotten. Earth contains for me no greater treasure than yourself." ' Their re-onion wu con secrated by a cordial embrace, and mutu ally flowing tears. When Catherine went to the late resi dence of Mrs. Gutone, for their children, tbe lady had requested her to take a bas ket, and bring away the remainder of the silver plafe, giving her directions where to find it. Wben the confusion attending their return bad somewhat subsided, ' she related . to her. husband respecting . tbe pawning of a part of iC Happily, she had the list and the card with her. The following day. he . redeemed if, and she had once more tbe pleasure of seeing it entire. Mr.' Gastone immediately pro cured a honse, furnished it in a splendid style, that his wife might have her every wren gratified, and in a few. .davs they re moved to it." Meanwhile, however,' many circumstances occurred, which will soon be revealed. '" ' :;'""-" ': - - - '. J'.- - A somewhat singular cirenmstaoos had oeenrred to Emily, which .was omitted in iu due place. .While playing .with lai. about the windows and doors of the rooms occupied by Dr. Boyd. and Mrs. Gutone, Eniiy bad frequently seen loitering about the street, near the boose,' V young man. tall, muscular, with a countenance- air gar larly; bold and daring. She wm too ig noraatof the world, to have a tbonghtof fearing him, and a feeling,, to her new and "inexplicable, -, prevented her , from mentioning it- She at. length began .to, expect and watch for his appearance, aa l wu disappointed when be came' not.' At tinves, when she stood by the window, he! would lean, with arms folded,, aad faoe partly shaded by Vis hat, against tbe op-, paeite building, and gaze steadily at her for moments. r Net deeming herself an objeet of .attraction she. only wondered why he came so often, and sometimes bad a passing wish, to address some word of, kindneu to bim. But he gave her no op portunity for this.' . i ,-Tbe absence of this unknown ' individ ual, who, silently and uaconsciouJy. to herself, wu drawing thus early from her yeang heart, its first, fresh note of love, w.u tbe only, cause for sorrow in' ber -removal; and when her' mother inquired TERMS the cause of her occuional sadneoa. sbe communicated, with ehildiah simplicity, tbe history of this new and silent friend ship. ' - ' CHAPTER X. - . .TUB DOCTOR 1J A RAGE. At eight o'clock, P. af on the day of Mrs. Gastone's departure. Dr. Boyd re turned u usual to his room. His sur prise and rage at finding them vacant, may be more easily imagined than de scribed. He sought through every apart ment, but the conviction was only con firmed that Bella had indeed deserted him with Ini and Emily. And yet she had taken nothing. Her rlothes, the furni ture, all remained u usual ; even a fa vorite volume lay open upon her work table, and beside it an unfinished garment At last the absence of the silver wu dis covered. - "Blood and thnnder 1" exclaimed be. 'She has indeed left me ; she, for whom I have nlaved the h-nncriri. Y. that is the worst of it I. who knew myself i to be so vile so degraded a villain, have in her presence affrcted goodness nearly angelic, did it really exist W bat a fool I have been to leave bar for hours, days and nights. I might have known that she, who once deserted a husband and child, would leave me, in turn. - And now let me calculate. No doubt, disturb ed by my harshness and coldness for some weeks past, sbe has, during my ab sence, admitted some other lover. Death and confusion ! Yes, and even now to gether they may be triumphing over me, the galled and cheated man. Bnt I will seek her out Yes, even from the grasp of her furious bnsband will I force her, and dearly shall she pay for this act. I have loved hef better than I ever loved any one, and u well u I am capable of loving bnt now all is changed. Hence forth, let the direst hate urge me on. Once more in my power, she shall foe! that sbe hu transgressed. I will show no mercy; The child I care not for ; she was a useless incumbrance, but Bella Bella, . beware ! No power shall shield you from me.' Fiom this day yen have created for yourself an enemy as nntiring in his exertions to injure you as be will be ingenious in this method of so doing, Tbe pretty Em i!, she has no doubt car ried off too. Though timid and gentle as a bird, sbe is nevertheless so fresh snd sweet that she is quite a novelty. One likes to conqner such. Besides, when I grew tired of Bella, she wonld have been something to me. She eannot easily for get me. I will have her. yet;" and he continued striding up and down the apart ment with wild and impatient steps, oc casionally stopping short, muttering be tween his teeth, or. striking bis clenched hand against a table, chair or wall. From this state of phrenzy he wu aroused by a low, peculiar tap at tbe door. An angry expression disfigured bis countenance u he opened tne door, and eatghing a glimpse of his visitor, said ' "Yon are imprudent in coming hero, Barnard ; nevertheless all happens right this time ; come in. I want you." ' The person addressed entered the room, wit'j a bold, haughty air. He was scarce ly eighteen years of sge, but a full devel opment of form and features, a ith much natural dignity, gave bim the appearance of being older. His countenance wu expressive of fearless, daring and deep af fection a consciousness of real worth and present degradation. His large head and full, broad chest indicated intellectu al power, while a recklessneM of appear ance, proved that few, if any, of bis tal ents were turned to a good account j His powerful figure wu enveloped ia dark pants, a gray, loose coat common vest, and a small red shawl tied abont his neck. An enormous quantity of coarse, dark hair was suffered to fall around -the face and half hide his bold and manly beauty.1 Upon entering tbe parlor of Dr. Boyd, he had cut around him a hasty but sesrshisg glance, but not seeing whom or what he wished, quietly took tbe eh air the Doctor had shoved towards him. ; I have looked for yoa all day. Cat- nne, said tne young man, addressing Dr. B. with another of his many appel latives, "but not finding you, I ventured here.". "And supposing yoa had met ladies here instead of me ?" inquired hia com panion, looking very fierce as he rem em- bered why tbe ladies were not here. . . i Bernard replied carelessly," fj, I eboold hare apologized for blundering to the wrong door and gone away ; bat I knew yon were alone, or should not have ties-, passed on sock ground," and he glanced i at, the still dpen sbnttera. -. The , Doctor hastily closed them, and turning a keen, i searching glance on Bernard,, uttered tbe single syllable: ; y ' - .... ' r" Weill:' . ... . ;v; -. - . "All is finished aad safe,", wu tbe reply. " 1 1. - -. Li a vine related his plan of operations.

Apparently, he disdain ed to u what at so much labor, he had. procured. .,,...-'. -r r . , Beady for another job. Bernard 7 Well, here it is.: Whea waiting in the street tor me. have yoa never seen loun ging' about tbe .windows and playing Un a cbilda ypung girl with -black hair aad ejesy and a light, graceful fig ure?" ' " $2.00 FCR IS 1DU1CE. ) WHOLE NL'MBERi llY. ie," replied bis companion, almost" with a growl, u if ETwouli if possible, prevent him from ajieakingof herf "Well, my lady-bird ha slipped ber cage, aild taken the girl with her, I Rap-' pose ; but this I do not knew ; it is what I wth you to find out. for such girls are not to be fonnd every day, and sometime, ; my boy, if yon are wise and silent, you shall go shares with the little beauty an' wen a me money, lor in trnth she wonld more become yon than me ; but no mat-" ter.

' ' " "Yoa know me, Hetson." pnrsned Boyd, looking steadily at him. '-and yon ' lso now4tnat vhat I Will. 1 have, 'i his ?r hU bln2ine-.br I,.th8 powers of Ilesven or nefl.

"What am I to receive for this?" ask- ed Bernard with forced calmness.

"When yoa commhnieafe to me tbe place of her residence, I will give "you as much more." .''.- A smile-of triumph crossed Bernard's face,, which he endeavored to conceal byj seizing bis cap, placing it waggishly on. one side of his head, and hastily departing." He passed from that street to another, where the pent-up emotions burst forth ' in all their violence. ; . . , j "Never ! by all. the Gods I" he ex claimed, with sn attitude of strong defi ance. Never sb.ill your polluted hand rest upon the giiL I swear it, and nhat I will, I have, u well u yon. Untiring; shall le my pursuit till I once more feast ; my eyes upon that beautiful face.

The following morning at an early, hour, there might have been seen a young man of powerful frame and handsome countenance, neatly dressed, entering-'ev-ery bouse with a basket of toys npon his ' arm. ami in the other hand a bundle ef ; children's Books. It wu Bernard IleU son. Tbe principal change in his per son, was from the removal of tbo coarse brown wig of the precedin evenin?. re-" veiling hia own far prettier chestnut curtd, which, when in the presence of Dr. Boyd. bad often singularly reminded that indi- vidnal of Maleen. The bair of the young , man was pushed back from his forehead, so broad and fall, and a' bland, eourte-'' ons smile sat npon hie features. II is oa-" tensible occupation wu selling tbe toys and books the real ons. to find the young girl whose peace and purity Dr. Boyd had sworn to destroy. . At a later honr the Doctor emerge! , from his dressing room in a suit entirely blark, with a white cravat very exactly ' folded and tied- about his. neck. His' hands were encased in black gloves, and precisely upon the top of his well-amooth- ed locks wu a broad brimmed, black bat. He had concealed the bitterness of his soul under an expression of subdued sad serious mildness. .."
