TIm greater portion of the dlatrict la now within the United Suta*, while the church bulkllog and tbe home of the realdeat priest are in Canada. It la a Ana-looking farm dla trict, and the Indian farmer* are quite aucceaaful with wheat and oata. Corn, however, la not much cultivated In Urge quantities, but more commonly Uuu coru may be aeen potatoes, or peas, or bean*. Home fencea are of rail; aome are of aapllngs, trimmed; aome are of alaba or rough boarda. Some are quite rudely made; aome are f«steo<*d to gether with wlthea. Some of tbe farms, luatetd of having fencea of any klud ol wood, are aurroun(|«d by rowa of plled up boulder*, or piece* of II meat one.

And theo came the row homeward. The sun set glorlouslv- showing an Infinite variety of tlnta and colors upoo water and sky, th* river grew somlwrly dark, the Islands seemed spirit taunted, and the err of the loon echoed with melancholy cadences across the water. Now and then a boat, manned by Indian flsher* men. shot past u*, ami as we rounded a point the scattered lights of the town could he seen. We landed ne.ir the old •tooe church, a quaintly rugged, weather beaten pile, which even In the Utter part of the century gone, welcomed the Indiana to worship and prayer. Close beside the ckurvh Is the little graveyard, and a sad sight It Is; for the little space was fully occupied, years since, by graves, and for a long ilme past new In terments have been made by placing the colllns on the ground and putting earth ou top. Thus the graveyard space Is now some feet above the level of the land round about, and Is held in place bv a wall of stone. On Saturday nights the Indian children are given a special wash, the floors are given a special scrub, ami the home* are given a special setting to rights; all In preparation for the following day. The |>eople are devout Catholics, and con sider It both their privilege and dutv to attend church, and It Is a pleasant sight to see them assemble. Many come on foot down the main street of the village, the men attired with neatness, aud the women with their blankets drafted ar tistically over their heads and about their bodies. Others come bv wagon, and some by boat. In the church one notices at ouce the profoundly earnest faces of both old and young. An aged man, with bowed head, whispers his prayers and counta his beads. Youths gravely bear the tall candlesticks and assist the priest In the service. The women draw their blankets more closely about their faces and listen with devout attention. An Indian plays the organ, an Indlau choir sings, aiid It is lnd*> •crlhably pathetic to hear them chant Christian hvmns in Mohawk. Some of the barns are of logs, and are built In se|»arate sections, of equal height, with the Intermediate space roofed over by the common roof. Just like a type which I h ive frequently no ticed In some portions of Keutucky. I*hcre are great commons about the Indian village, and there horses and rattle feed, and thev m»v freely wander ilong the roads or the village street* In itead.

The next morning Rose met the family •I breakfast. paler and mora quiet than usual, bat perfectly self poMfil Tin loving heart* around her needed no worda to tench them thai all allusion to the painful rotirrnwtioaa of the preriooi evening should bo avoided. . Lillian proposed that Roe* should ac company her mother on the exploring expedition, alleging that Ross's taate end judgment would be more adapted to the taste of the whole family than her own. The proud girl divined at once her lis ter's real mesning, and with heightened color and contracted brow shrank as from a blow. Her mother came to her rescue, remarking quietly shs preferred Lillian should go, as Rose oould more advantageously aid in superintending various changes at home that should be arranged at once and in which her brothers could be effective assistants, judging, with her nsual sagacity, even laborious employment fur the comfort and welfare of the family would be the must certain cordial for her wounded spirits. Those sent to spy out the land re* turned In the afternoon and brought back a most enthuslastio report of the beauties of the place, its great capacity for profitable employment, the conven ience of the house and outbuildings, so arranged as to save much labor, and therefore peculiarly desirable in their estimation, as it was wsll understood they must dispense with servants. In deed, Mrs. Newton told her husband it was the facsimile of such a place as they had often dreamed over. The pros|iects this glowing report opened were so in unison with the natural taste and good judgment of the whole family, giving a field for the working of each individual and peculiar talent, that nothing reiuaiued but to hasten the busi ness arrangement between Mr. Dunbar and Mr. Newton and enter at once upon their labors. The good wife and mother thought that no repairs were necessary bnt such as could be better attended to when on the ground. Mr. Newton then offered to takea leass of the property for a certain number of years, paying a rent equal to that paid in the vicinity for Tanning projwrty, the papers to be at ouce drawn up and possession taken im mediately.

Selecting such article# at would suit their altered circumitancea, the family removed immediately to their new home, leaving such property as they could claim U> l» sold at auction. When all WM told aud fully settled, Mr. New ton was thankful to find IMM<m 04 000 and ♦X.OOO clear remained in hta liamls, besides the unpretentious fnrnUh iuics of the farm home and the expentee of removal. l»art of thi. money he a once safely invested, reserving only what would supply their wants till they might hotM to receive something available from the farm. I taring alto purchased from Eustace the stock and fanning imple menU he had secured with the i»lace. A very honest and efficient fanner who had for some years lived in»litt^ cotes. n«.r work was also retained.

The storm that threatened Rot* t l»eace had quietly subsided, and her often to their natural tons, but at time* adiscorlant note told too painly that her heart wm not fully reassured. The young man meanwhile was trying to bnnlsh every clot i from the •weet girl's brow, and all his *«*Uyex* cellent qualities were called into action and his hMty temper and natural hau teur were wisely controlled when at the farm, whkh by no meant wm iurre ''T.J m, h.w.y In their ».« tious. without ennui or diswntont, each ChfWrlSf<of anothec exptoaico fTom Orenville the family had all been W careful uot to haaard any remark ln his prveeuce with reference to the intense public feeling which by CMt culminating toward a ctWs. ™e wisdom may be doubted of theitrict retr Icence. but the time wj. dr.wJ »« £Sfcr-8SsT5fS God. then follow him.

Their minds were not aroneed bjr ths in* residents ex excitement that city i parienoed when naming sad papers and frequent bulletins kept ths tenia in perpetual tumult. Mr. Newton could not afford either time or money for anoli tansies or an noyances. Bat their erne week* t»to!lige*fte9Wkttr In bit frequent vialts to Lillian and the friends at the farm often rowed their Indignation almost beyoodoootrol, show in# that under all the peaoefnlnees at their present life a fire emoldered that needed bat a spark at any time or mo meat to leap into an inextinguishable flame. Wbeo Doobar was pressnt, the coun try's prospects were the eooaUnt theme, bat of late Urenville, who once wm ao customed to meet Dnnbar that they might walk together every evening to Mr. Newton's boose, now apparently avoided him. for they seldom met and never called together. While Jasper was with them tlioee topics that were of the greateet Interval were never mentioned The family ventured on no qoeetiona, and be volunteered no remark. He waa unwearying in little acta of kindneaa, apt to deviae topics of general intereet or amusement, and to Rom never was lovsr so devoted. If Roee waa only waiting patiently for unmiatakable rsvelationa of hia feelinga and intentiona or had really been lulled to reet by hia unoeaaing kindneaa and tradernraa, neither her parenta nor broth era could understand, but they had be come painfully certain that he harbored in hia heart a purpoee that might at any moment "aweep all her hopes, like aand. away." U came at last, that fsarful day, Just as the cold, stern winter had departed and spring was full of promise—Humter surrendered. For some days groups of men were aeen standing on the corners of the streets In earnest conversation, and "expectation stood aghast with hor ror." The excitement spread all orer tns country. At Montgomery farm the peaco and <iuiet of tbe winter were dis pelled by item and resolute watchful' neat, waiting impatiently for the aigual to spring to arma Dunbar wae with them every evening of the previous week to keep theui posted and arrange for in* atant action whenever needed. Oren ville came not at alL Roee moved about her work mechanically, repelling any indication by word or look that aeemed Uke aympathy with an impatienoe, an irritability, ro foreign to her nature that it waa too evident aome concealed fear or sorrow waa hidden in her heart 'On thia eventful Sabbath Granville mad&hia «p]*earance in aoaaon for din* ner. Ue apologised for his absence the paat week on the plea of slight illness, telling Roue he would have sent her a line, but oach morning he felt aure of be ing better before night, but found him* aelf inistakeu. He had, however, em* braced the first moment of convaleacenoe to come to Iter. 80 wretchedly pale and haggard did he look that her heart re proacbed her for the doubts which ahe had tried in vain to conceal, and eveu her friends were so struck by his misera bly changed appearance as to be almost ready to hope they had misjudged him and cart fully avoided remarka that tnigbt disturb the Hal)bath by bitter feeling or unguarded anger. Eustace bad failed to be with them in the moruing or to attend Lillian to church, and knowing such unwonted ah sence was aigniAcaut George, with his father's consent, after dinner was just starting for the city when be espied the truant riding rapidly up the lane and hastened to meet him As the friends met Eustace exclaimed: "It is war now, war of complete ex termination or submission." "Stay a moment. Is Grenville with your "Yes. He has been here but a abort time and la either ill or in great mental anxiety. Have you heard anything more of his mcvementsT "Yes, indeed. Enough to destroy himt Our poor Hose. "The southern sympathisers In ttifc city are wildly jubilant over this first aggressive step of their brethren and now feel safe to apeak out. Horton told me exultiugly that Grenville wit* heart und band with them; that lie lutd juat received a letter from his father urging him to break away from all ties hero at oncu und hasten to join them, saying that his father's influence with his party had secured for his son a high position in the large army they are ratt ing. Horton says he saw the commis sion, and that Grenville had accepted this very morning and wss confident that when Rose saw that bis mind was fixed she would yield." "Ah, how little be understands our darling! Or rather, be undcratauda too well What lie aaid to Horton was s|» keti iu a moment of excitement, aud his dispirited mauner aince ho came proves plainly he dare not oven broach tlie sub ject to Iter.

The tale was soon told The fearful step liad been too long antic ipated for any great surprise to blend with the excitement aud Indignation it caused. The color fled from every face, but tlte lofty courage and stern resolu tion stamped on each feature needed not words to tell bow willingly they would offer their lives for a country so dearly loved aud bitterly insulted. "Aud now may God bless us aud sjieed us to our work," said Uustace, while with his arm tlimwu closely around Lil lian be read with jirido and admiriug love the unselfish spirit with which she laid her heart's life on her country's al tar. Mr. Newtou raised his hand to heaven and soleiuuly blessed them, while Mr*. Newton, with more than a Homau moth er's fortitude—a Christian heroism - yielded her brave boys to her country's service. Out when Alfred sprang to her anus with an imploring look and the one word—"Mother"—she pressed her quiv ering lips to his noble brow, unable to re ply to that unspoken entreaty. But his father luid his hand lovingly on his head, ■lying: "My boy, I am too old and you too young to enter into active service for our land, at least for the present. Should there be pressing need, neither age nor youth shall keep us back at such a call. This good toother will yield us without a word of remonstrance." While this was passing Row, forget ting lover, self, all but her country's peril, had listened with compressed lips and eyes whose heroic light might have led men to the cannon's mouth. George saw that a spirit was roused within ber at this moment that would sustain ber under the ooming revelation. 80, turn ing suddenly to Grenrills, he said; "We must endeavor to be all enlisted in the same regiment, and by going into town tonight we can enter our nanus early tomorrow and be 00 hand to march at any moment This precious, darling lister will have little Him to re deem ber pledge of last fkQ." Without a momsnfs hssltsllnri ah* passed to her lover's side and laid hsr hand timidly on his, then raiasd those aioquatifes to his faoe wjtk a look of earnest, pleading lore, at tlx urn* Uqm carrying into his inmost soul the oonrio* tion that erery word of that pledge vm well remembered and would be truly acted upon la erery particular.

I will girs np all for your dear sake. Leare the strife and bitterness here and wander with me through gay. beautiful Prance and sunny Italy till peace is once mors restored." For one instant Rose gased into his face, with soorn and contempt i|tilrering in erery lineament Then dashing his artn from around her and springing to her father's side, her bead erect and eyes wboee burning light should bar* blasted the traitor where be stood, she cried: "Do you bear that man, father?

"Who has warped your judgment and your affection to me? What proof hare yon that, though less enthusiastic, 1 am not really as loral to my country as yourselfT demanded the young man. with tuucb temper and embarrassment "llere subterfuge," cried George. "1 Aid not think you would stoop to such miserable quibbling, in your heart you bare a meaning that yoor words do not rereaL Yon call the south your coun try, but do not recognize the north as »uch, and then talk of your loyalty!" "Again 1 ask, what proofs hare you of 1his assertion?" "Oh, Ja»|iert Dear Jasperr cried Rose, once more starting to his side and cUuikng bis bands. "We ask uo proofs but your own words. Only assure me you are true to our united country and ready to fiRbt with my brothers under the stars and stripes, and we ask no fur ther.

Dunbar brings the proofs snch as he cannot gainsay, lie strong, my darling. He is not worthy so noble a heart." Dunbar stepjied forward, and placing a letter in Urenrille's hands said: "This Is from your jiarents. I presume. Horton requested me to bring It to you and at the suutu time boasted that you were pledged to the cause ho advocates. The letter contains an officer's commis sion for you and a summons to return south without delay." "This U frnm your parent», t preiumc." "Curse In in!" exclaimed the young man. "Dot I luve no wish to conceal my sentiments, only so far aa 1 wished to aave my darling Roeo from the pain 1 know she must feel. Yet now that tlie south haa taken the atep aho should have done long ago I mnat act with her. 1 lore yon all and many more at the north, bnt I do moat heartily deteat the princi ples ahe wonld enforce.

How fearfully am I punished for ray idolatry now that I am awakened to the deformity of that which my blinded vi si on saw once so perfect I Oh. Jasper Orenville, what deaolatiou have yon brought on one wboae only fanlt lay in loving yon too well!" (t wero vniu to describe the agony of thsae young hearts. By tarns he raved and entreated, appealing one moment to the parenta and the neit to Lillian, who each repelled hia attempts to enlist them to bia behalf. Ralph's passionate defi ance, Oeorge'a tnanly remonstrance and Mr. Newton'* earnest and touching «!• peals to nrgo him back to doty were an* availing. Ho argued tliat he was acting from solemn convictions of duty and that nothiug could be more convincing proof of his convictions than the fact that by this rtep he destroyed every hope of happiness ho had in life, and if Rose cast him off he abonld be a martyr to a caaae be had espoused believiag it to be right On the contrary, Mr. Newton assured him, front facts which be could not gain say that hia mind had been poisoned from earliest childhood, and now, being called into vigorous activity, was leading him to destroy his own peace and happi naas and bring misery to those who had so loved and trusted him. It was distressing to witness the young man's wretchedness when be tried to say farewell. Aa be approached Rose, in wboae whole attitude acorn, disap pointment. insulted affection and earnest entreaty were all nnmistafcalily mingled, Ralph started to his sister's side, throw ing one arm around her, and with the other waving him offi "Back! Do not toooh her, or I shall find it in my heart to strike yon dead at her feet I Miscreant! Traitor! Look at your work! Reflect npou the misery yon are causing one yon have so pre tended to love!

"Rom! Rurel mj darling! Do not cast me off! I would die to mti yon one pang! God U my witnees that I sjieak the troth, but my whole aoul revolts at this northern Interference with soutb era rights.

And when this strife is ended—and it will, not be long before southern rights are securely established—ah, then, my beloved, tell me if I live I may hope to make you my own." It wu an unfortunate speech for tlte pleader, but it routed the spirited girl from the Iteartsick lethargy which was •tailing over her. and she answered with dignity and firmness! "Never! But if you will lend your aid to uphold and enforce the government of these United States and assist to re claim those disobedient children who have rebelled ;• piinst their mother coun try. then all (lie sad misjudgments of the past shall be buried forever, never to Ui recalled, and I will be to you this hour a striae and loving a wife as man ever claimed. Out, Jasper Grenvllle. hear me! If yon leave us to fight against my friends and couutry, theu farewell and forever! Prom this hour we shall be utter strangers. I wait one moment for Tour final answer—the final decision." What a Chan#* had this liour's agony wrought in Rose, whoee pretty, winning ways, all softness, gentleness and love, Siado her, as George used to say, "the sunbeam" of tlte house. All looked on in silent grief and am axemen t. ller •lender fonu seemed to expand Into •jueunly dignity. Her eyoa, wont to iparklo in gleeful humor, now looked down in clear and regal light on tho recreant lover, who could not meet their determined gaze. Thus he stood Uks those who wait Till Judgment i|Mrak* th* doom of fata, • 80 still, a* If no brv*sa mhfht ilarw To lift on* lock of reran hair. Then turning from him with a look ot unntterable scorn she gave her hand to Ralph to lead her from the room. Again with a bitter cry Jasjier tneo to stay her, bnt Mrs. Newton laid a re straining liand upon his arm as the door cloeed after her, saying: "This has lasted too long already. Mj daughter has been sufficiently tried. Your own act has severed all connec tion between us, and you must uow do part Harsh as it may sound, my roof cannot shelter a traitor. Our path from this time lead in an opposite direc tion. I grieve that yon should bo so blinded and that our pleasant intercourse must ceaee. Out you would have it so May God for^ivo you. but now fare well." Without u word he passed out, nud in a few moments his horse's feet ranti clear on the gravel path, and long after ho passed the gate could lie heard, urged by the wretched rider iuto a mail gal lop along the road.
