MY BItIUNU BYBIIVB STOiIY,
I wns scarcely eighteen when I met
nnd loved Arther Deland. 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.

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.

the army of Don Frederick was fighting

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.
