The secretary lived with his young? wife in the as yet uutroublcd bliss of the honeymoon. No wordly motives, no passing passion had united tliein. No ! Ardent and long-tried love had been the I seal of their union. Very early in life had they learned to know each other ; but i the delay attending Sellner's appoint- | ment to his secretaryship, compelled him even to postpone the attainment of his j wishes. Finally he received his patent, and the Sunday following he led his true maiden, as wife, into the new abode. \ftcr tho long, oonr?tr??ine<l <luys of rn 11 gratulations and family festivals were over, they could at length enjoy the pleasant evenings, disturbed by no third person, in trustful solitude. Plans for future lifo, Sellner's tlute, and Josephine's harp, filled out the hours, which glided by only too rapidly for the lovers, and the deep harmony of their tones was to them a friendly foretoken of future day One evening, when they had delighted each other for a long time with their music, Josephine began to complain of a ; headache. That morning she had con cealed an attack from her anxious hus band, and a fever, at first insignificant, was increased by the inspiration of the music and the over-exertioi/of the senses, so much the more, that she, front youth upwards, had suffered from weak nerves. She concealed it no longer from her hus band, and Sellner anxiously sent for a physician. lie, however, treated the matter as a tiifle, and promised complete recovery for the morrow. But after a restless night, during which she raved j incessantly, the doctor found the poor ' Josephine" in a condition which had all the systems of a dangerous, nervous fever, j lie applied all remedies: Josephine's illness grew daily worse. Sellner was beside himself. On the ninth day, Josephine felt that the weak fabric of her nerves could not long endure this illness : the doctor had already foretold this to Sellner. She felt that her last hour had come, and with calm resignation awaited her fate. "Dear Edward," said she to her hus band, while she pressed him for the last time to her bosom, "with deep sorrow do I take leave of this beautiful earth, where I have found thee, and deepest bliss in thy heart; but, though I can no longer 1h> hap py in thine arms, yet shall Josephine's love hover around thee, like a faithful genius, until we meet above!" When she had said this she sank back, and softly slumbered her life away. It was about nine o'eloek in the evening. What Sell-! mr suffered was inexpressible; he fought loug with life; grief had shattered his health; and when, at length after week's ?f illness, he rose front his bed, the strength of youth was no longer in his limbs;lie sank into a mody kind of stupor, and wasted away visibly. Deep dcs|*m dency stepped into the place ot despair, and a silent sorrow hallowed all remem berances of the loved one. lie had left Josephine's chamber in the saute condi tion as before her death. Upon the sew ing table vet lay her work, and the harp stood, still and untouched in the corner. Every evening, Sellner made a pilgrimage to this sanctuary of his love, took his tlute thither with him, leaned, as in the times of his happiness, upon the window, and breathed forth in mournful tones, his longing after the loved shadow. Once thus he stood, lost in his thoughts, in Josephine's chamber. The air ot a clear moonlight night, was wafted in to him from the open window, and, from the neighboring castle-tower the watchman called the ninth hour; then, on a sudden, the harp resounded in harmony with his tones, as though touched by a light spirit breath. Strangely surprised, he ceased playing upon his flute, and with it died away also the sound of the harp. Now, trembling violent!}', he l>ogaii Josephine's favorite song, and c^*rlouder and mightier sound ed tl?e strings to his melodies, and in deepest harmony the tones intermingled. Ihcn, in an anguish of joy, he sank upon the Hoor, and opened wide his arms, to embrace the loved shadow, and suddenly he felt himself breathed upon, as by the warm air of spring, and a pale, shimmer ing light flitted towards and past him.? (i lowing with the inspiration of love, he exclaimed: "I know thee, beloved shade of my glorified Josephine! Thou didst promise me to hover around me with thy love ; thou hast kept thy word : I feel thv breath, thy kiss uj>on 1113' lips, I feel my self embraced by thy glorified spirit."? In deepest bliss, lie seized his flute anew, and the harp sounded again, but ever softer, until its whispering died out in lengthened strains. Sellner's whole vital strength was deeply agitated by thespirit PTeeting of this evening: restless, he flung himself upon his couch, and, in all his heated dreams, the whispering of the heart summoned him. Late, and wearied by the visions of the night, he awoke, feeling his whole King seized by some strange power, and a voice was living within him, which was to him a token of speedy dissolution, and sig nificant of the victory of the soul over the body. "\\ ith ceaseless longing he await ed the even-ng and hastened to spend it in Josephine's chamber. He had alreadv succeeded in lulling himself, with his Hute, into a dreamy quiet, when nine o'clock struck, and hardly had the last stroke of the lxll ceased vibrating upon the ear, when the harp began gently to sound, until it finally trembled into "full accord. W hen his flute became silent, the spirit Jones died away; the pale, shimmering light flitted, this time, also past him, and in his bliss he could utter naught but the w ords " Josephine, Josephine, take iue to iliy true bosom." < hice more the harp took leave, with gently-dying tones, until its whisperings were lost in the lengthened, tremulous strains. Exhausted in a still greater degree by the events of this evening than before, Sellner tottered back to his room. His faithful servant was shocked at the appearance of his master, and hastened, in spite of orders to the eontrarv, for the physician, who was beside, an old friend of Sellner's. The doctor found him in a most violent attack of fever, with the same symptoms, as in the case of Jose phine, but much more dangerous. The fever increased threateningly, throughout the nigut, whilst he inecssantlv raved of Josephine, and the harp. In the morn ing, he becainc calmer, for the struggle was over, and he felt his approaching dis solution as even more evident, although the physician affected not to perceive l lone pf <}><? Til,, sick man dis closed to his friend wlrft had taken place, ] 1 and no expostulations of the cool, sensi ble man, could withdraw him from his j opinion. As evening drew nigh he be- I | came more languid, and finally hedged, with trembling voice, to be carried into Josephine's chamber. It was done. With unceasing cheer 1 tilness he looked around, greeted each beautiful reminiscence with silent tears, and spoke calmly, but firmly convinced,, of nine o'clock as the hour of his death. The decisive moment drew nigh; he caus ed all to leave the room after bidding them a last farewell; except the physi cian, who wished to remain throughout. Then nine o'clock resounded solemnly, from the castle-tower, and Sellner's face grew bright, a deep emotion glowed once more upon his pale face. ''Josephine!" \ called he, ns though inspired by the De ity, "Josephine, greet me once more, as I take my leave of life, that I may know thee near, and conquer death with thy love!" Then sounded wondrously the strings of the harp, in loud, glorious strains, as though songs of victory, and around the dying man flitted a shimmer ing light. "1 come, I come!" he exclaim ed, sank back, and struggled with life. Ever softer and softer, sounded the tones of the harp; then Sellner's last remains of vital strength made one mighty effort and when it was over with him, the harp strings sprang asunder, as though dashed by a spirit hand. The physician's knees smote liiin: he closed the cj'es of the now glorified one, who, in spite of the Strug gle, lay as in a gentle slumber, and, in deep emotion, left the house. For years he could not tear the recollection of that hour fioni his heart, and preserved the deepest silence as to the last moments of his friend, until finally, in a moment of free intercourse with friends, he imparted the events of that evening, and showed the harp which he had kept as a bequest of the deceased.?Literary World. - Starvation' ix Spain'.?It appears that the miserable condition to which Ireland was reduced a few years ago, is paralleled by what is now taking place inlSpain.

The Two Sexes?There is too much truth in the following, which we clip from the Syracuse Standard: When a rakish youth goes astray, friends gather around him in order to restore him to the path of virtue. Gen tleness and kindness arc lavished upon him to win him hack again to innocence and peace. No one would suspect that he had ever sinned. Bat when a poor confiding girl is betrayed, she receives the brand of society, and is henceforth driven from the ways of virtue. The betrayer is honored, respectcd, esteemed ; but the ruined, heart-broken victim knows there is no peacc for her this side of the grave. Society has no helping hand for her, no smile of peacc, no voicv of forgiveness. There are earthly moralities unknown to heaven. There is a deep wrong in them, and fearful are the consequences.
