He was of a pood family, but prouder blood than his flowed in my veins. I wns naturally very proud and haughty, but 1 loved my friends fervently and hated my enemies as warmly. I loved my young husband as passionately, nnd for n year I was very happy, though ray exacting love was hardly saihfied. Entirely devoted to him, I wished a like return. But hi* heart could not love like mine. His bus iness took him away from home nearly all the time. Once be came and told me that slan der's tongue had associated his name with that of a young girl of evil repute. Afterward I heard a great deal about them, but I did not believe he could be false to me. About this time another call for soldiers induced him to enlist. He was commissioned ns Colonel, and his regiment went away, leaving me al most broken-hearted. As time passed on 1 heard that ho kept up a correspondence with Helene—that j was her name—that was more than , friendly. I did not believe it, however, | nnd laughed at the stories which I thought nothing but the inventions of malice. Hut, unhappy day, Helene came and asked to see me. I granted her request. 1 will not try to tell all that passml be tween us, for I belisre 1 was mad with horror. Enough that she showed me letters purporting to be written oy my husband, speaking of the misery he fell at being away from her, calling her by endearing names, and poems addressed to her in the most passionate language of love. She told me in the most pa thetic tone, that “ I am sorry We have wronged you., but we have loved each other so well we could not help it. He has furnished me with money and I am going to him.” I sent her from me for I could beat no more; andseating myself at my desk, I wrote to him to tell him all. I know not what 1 said, but my heart was very bitter with its new found agony, and I wrote as 1 felt. I went to mail my letter, but ere I reached home ray bruin seemed burst ing, and I remembered nothing more, save the agony of sinking down into horrible darkness. Ere morning I was raving with brain fever, nnd for six long weeks I hovered on the confines of the spirit world. When reason again re sumed her sway I asked of him—my husband. My heart went out to him w ith a passionate yearning that looked beyond his fulse and falseness. Tbcy placed in my hands a letter, written in answer to mine. He wrote ns if his heart was broken. He said he would rush into battle, aud sell his life fighting for his country; for, having lost my love, he had nothing for which to live. 1 felt as I read that I had been too harsh. Perhaps, after all, Helene had forged all those cunning lies. I thought of this awhile and then, as 1 was alone, I took up a paper that lay within my reach to look over its con tents. Almost the first thing that met my eye was the list of killed and wounded in the, then, recently fought battle of An tictam. His name was among the killed. Whether ho was true or false I shall never know, for ho fills a hcroe’s grave. He died for his country, while I am slowly dying of despair. My hair is al ready bleached, and my brow furrowed with my terrible trial, and I know that my earthly sorrow s will be short. “ What is the meaning of n back biter?

A BIKC»K IN TUG OI.UUN TIMK. A couple of hundred years before out revolutionary war broke out, the Dutch were engaged In n similar struggle against Spain. Towards the close of the year 1572, Don Frederick, at the head of 30,000 Spaniards and mercena ries, laid siege to Harlem, defended by a garrison of some 4000 men. The Spaniards were nearly eight to one, and the defenses to the city were feeble. Tee Dutch me* furhlini for tlwttiwi rights and liberty of conscience, while the army of Don Frederick was fighting for a merciless despotism, the Spanish inquisition, and the right to burn her. eties. A glance at this siege will show the difference between the alleged “ atrocities" committed by our armies to-day, and the mild way of doing things in the olden time. / besides the garrison of 4000 men, liar* lem had within its walls an efficient corps—armed with sword, musket and dagger—of 300 men I " The chief, 1 * says Motley, was a widow of disting uished family nnd unblemished reputa tion, about forty-seven years of age, who, at the head of her Amazons, participated in ninny of the most fiercely-contested actions of the siege.” William of Orange sent from Leyden a force to relieve the place. It was attacked by the Spaniards aod routed. A large number of prisoners were taken, who were Immediately sent to adorn the gib bets, which were already conspicuously erected for the purpose in the Spanish camp. Among the victims was an offi cer named Van Trior, for whom the Dutch offered a large ransom and nineteen Spanish prisoners. This offer was re fused, and Van Trier was hanged upon the gallows by one leg until he was dead. In return for this conrtesey the nineteen Spaniards were immediately gibbeted. As fast as the Spanish cannon batter ed down tho walls, theinbabitants, men, women and childreo, brought bags of sand, blocks of stone, loads of earth, and statues of saints from the Catholic Churches, aod throw them by heaps into the gaps. At length an assault was or dered. The population swarmed tho walls to assist tho feeble garrison.— Rocks, live coals, boiling pitch, were hurled upon the Spaniards. Hooks smeared with pitch and set on fire were flung flaming over their necks. The be siegers retreated with great loss, while only three or four of the Dutch were killed. William of Orange sent another force to relievo the town. It was likewise routed. Dc Koning, the second in cam mand, was taken prisoner. The Span iards chopped off bis bead, and threw it over the walls into the city with this inscription; “ This is the head of Cap tain'De Koning, who is on his way with reinforcements for the good city of Har lem,” the citizens retorted by cutting of eleven Spanish heads, barreling them np and throwing them into the Spanish Camp with an equally pointed inscrip tion. Such ghastly practical jests wore of daily occurence. Failing, after repeated altemps to take the town by assault, the Span iards resolved to reduce it by famine,— The sufferings of the inhabitants were terrible. They subsisted on cats, rats and mice ; boiled hides and shoe leather; nettles and grass from graves. Men wo men and children fell dead in the streets. July 12,1673, the place surrendered.— Having promised mercy to the citizens, the Spaniards entered. The promise was kept with true Spanish faith. A. frightful massacre, which was not con fined to the garrison, but extended to the citizens also. We need not dwell upon the detalle of the butchery. — Enough has already been told to give the rceder a refreshing idea of a liege in the olden tine.
