O day bo fray, 70a could nt ohill me, In that sweat time, far off and fair, Though loud wind shrieked and eolieed shrilly, And wild rain washed the woodlands bare 1 Thong 4 sodden fields stretched cold,-unvaried, And birds flew south on weary wing ; For in my happy hoart I carried The hope and promiea of tho spring. 0 day so gay, you cannot thrill me ! Your light and(porfume, shower and song, Your bloom and brightnoss, only fill mo With olJ-timo moinorios, swoet and strong. 1 would not bid your swift hours tarry, I do not hasten at your call ; For in my thankful heart I carry !

If on portion of vegetables bo boiled in pure, distilled, or rain water, ana anotner in wnicn a little salt has been added, decided dif f erence will be perceived in the tender : nass of the two. Vegetables boiled in pure water are vastly inferior in flavor. CnioKKir Jkllt. For chicken jelly, take a large chicken, out it up into small pieces stone jar, with a cover that will make it water-tight. Set the jar in a large kettle of boiling water, and keep it boiling for two hoars. Then strain on the liquid, and season it slightly with salt, pepper and mace, or with loaf sugar and lemon juice, according to the taste of the person for whom it is intended. Return the frag ments of the chioken to the jar, and set it again in a kettle of boiling water. You will find that you can collect nearly as much jelly by the second boiling. This jelly may be made of an old fowl. To Preserve! Strawberries. To a pint of freshly gathered strawberries put a light pound of sugar. In a large deep dish plaoe a portion of the fruit, strew it lightly with sugar, add more fruit, then sugar, etc., till you have' dis posed of all. Let the strawberries stand thus for severaT hours to form sirup. Put them on the fire in a bell-metal or porcelain-linked kettle, and boil rapidly fifteen or twenty minutes. When done, put the preserves in tumblers or half pint jars. Cover them with brandy pa pers, using as paste the unbeaten white of egg. If fastened up immediately, while the glasses are yet hot, the white of egg will adhere nicely. Set your glasses in the sun for a day or two, and you will find the preserves keep perfectly through out the year, provided always the fruit is sound at the time of preserving. Se lect the largest, firmest varieties for the purpose, and delay not until too late in the season, when the berries are more liable to mash and run to juice. Applb Orchards. Joshua Jefferis as mentioned by the Practical Farmer is one of the most successful apple-growers in Pennsylvania. His orchard is located on a hill-side sloping gently to the south and south-west, is of limestone soil, and made fertile by surface application of manure. This system he has pursued for 15 years. Trees, he maintains, should be fed regularly, not too much, but just enough to enable them to main tain a healthy moderate uniform growth. He applies the washings of the roads on his own farm, all the refuse ashes and those made in the neighboring lime-kilns in burning: lime with wood, and also manure from the cattle yards. When ever he has a spare load of fertilizing matter, it goes to the orchard. Spread ing these materials on the surface (al though a preen grass sod is on the ground), all over it, the soil is bo mellow he can kick it np with his foot the young roots coming up to the surface, or nearly so, not being more than an inch or so under it, for their food. There they come in contact with light, heat, and moisture, the important elements of plant food. Trees treated under this system are hsalthy, strong, and vigorous. Although in a deep valley, liable to late Spring frosts, he secures crops of fruit, while his neighbors in more favored lo calities fail. AgbiooiiTxjraii Notes. Take care to avoid the mistake of going into the cul ture of any fruit or vegetable too largely at first. Success in the cultivation of any crop, like the practice of any trade, requires a minute knowledge of all the details, which can only be gained by experience. It is a well known truth, that the in creased supply of any article enlarges the demand. Products which a few years ago were considered as a luxury which only the rich could afford, are constantly used by the day laborers in our cities and villages now. It is important to the farmer so to manacro that the land cultivated each year should lie as much as possible to gether. The census returns give the average yield of hay for the State of Massachu setts at a trifle less than one ton per .acre. Many farmers would obtain a larger 1 product at less expense, if the labor and manure were concentrated on a smaller space of ground. The increased price of the great agri cultural staples, does not keep pace with the increased cost of production. There are men, observing and practi cal men, who have strung from the soil all they possess of worldly wealth ; men competent to teach, but who are only unwilling to make the attempt. One of the chief hinderances to agricul tural progress, is the reluctance farmers feel towards giving the public the benefit of their experience, either by writing or dj speecn. Another Fearful Disaster . A terrible accident occurred on the Pittsburg, Washington and Baltimore Kailroad, about three-quarters of a mile this side of Connellsville. A freight train going east was running at full speed in order to reach the switch at Connellsville before the approach of the mail. At the point mentioned, at a sharp curve on the road, both trains came together so suddenly that the en gineers of the locomotives could hardly realize the fearful situation they were in, nor had they time to make much effort to check the speed of their engines, which eame together with a fearful crash that could be heard a long dis tance off. The passenger train eseaped with little injury. On the former Henry Saxton and the conductor, Rob ert Lookhart, were killed, and the mail agent, Blackburn, was injured to the extent that ho cannot live over the night. Eight passengers were seriously injured. Some have broken legs, others broken arms and ribs, and it is expected that a number of che&e will die, while some nine others sustained injuries of a less serious character. The collision of the cngls, going at the speed both were traveling, is said to have shook the earth in the neighborhood like an earthquake, and not one passenger on the entire train could utter a word for a full min ute after the occurrence. Amy. Brown, aged eighteen, committed suicide in Colchester, Conn., by taking morphine, her affianced lover having been accidentally killed a week ago.

Boston papers report that the bonded stores of that city are crammed with goods awaiting the reduction of the tariff.

How they Treat Mormon Apostles. The experience of a Mormon emissary in North Germany will not tend to create a very great desire among his brethren m the faith to undertake missionary work in that part of the world. Christian Hansen, a Dane by birth, lately made his appearance in the German Grand Duchy of Meoklenberg-Shwerin. He be gan at ence preaching Mormonism among the fishermen of that village and the neighborhood, and in the following three' weeks persuaded about one hun dred and fifty persons to embrace the faith of the Latter Day Saints, and to prepare for emigrating to Utah. Han sen promised to accompany them him self to the land of the Mormons, but two days previous to their departure he was arrested by the police in Rostock, the principal commercial city of Meck-lenberg-Schwerin? and the Police Judge of that place, having ascertained what he had done, sentenced him to receive fifty lashes on the bare back and to be impris oned for six months, every other day on a diet of bread and water. Hansen pro tested violently against the execution of this sentence, and telegraphed to the Ambassador of the United States in Ber lin, to interfere in his behalf. He re ceived the lashes, however, before he re ceived any reply from Mr. Bancroft, and was taken to the correctional Prison at Butzow. Mr. Bancroft refused to do anything for him, and Hansen will have to serve out his time in the Mecklenberg prison. Picking a Lock. Hobbs was an American who went over to London to pick a patent Bramah lock which had been made to defy all the world to open it without the key belonging to it. He delivered a lecture in London after wards. He said that his first step had boen to take an impression of tha hole in wax. He had originally supposed that each slide had its spring, but he found himself mistaken in that surmise. Hav ing contrived the necessary implements, he pressed down the disc, which left him at liberty to work on the slides; intro duced a lever into the keyhole, and ap plied pressure to the cylinder ; felt the slides successively, pressing them in the false notches, and succeeded in loosening the cylinder, and the lock was picked. He said he had never seen the inside of a Bramah lock before his experiments had never tried to pick one; and he en tertained no doubt that, with his experi ence, he could repeat the process in an hour's time. Mr. Hobbs alluded also to the powerful reflector' he is said to have used, and showed it to be a threepenny mirror, and he similarly refuted the ex aggerations relative to excessive filing of the lock. In conclusion, Mr. Hobbs said he had never made a lock, and sever practised picking much; and he aston ished his English auditors by saying that he knew ma"y more expert lock-pickers than himself. Scolding Women. What if such a law as this were in force now. Once it was in the New England States and Virginia: " Whereas, oftentimes many brabhnsr women often scandalize their neighbors for which their poore husbands are often brought into chargeable and vexatious suites, and caste in greate damages: Bee it therefore enacted by the authority aforesaid, that in actions of slaDder, oc casioned by the wife aforesaid, after judgment passed for the damages, the woman shall be punished by ducking ; and if the slander be soe enormous as to be a judged at a greater damage than five hundred pounds of tobacco, then the women to suffer a ducking for each five hundred pounds of tobacco adjudged against the husband, if ho refuse to pay the tobacco.

At the Alabama Settlement, in South ern California, writes a correspondent, a number of Southern families have bought a large aud fine tract of land, much of which they have put into wheat. Their crops look well ; and I believe they are well pleased with their location, finding the country healthy, the soil rich, and their prospects this year good. They came here in the midst of the great drought, and lost two crops ; but they had means to support themselves, and now will do well. It struck me that they had made the common mistake of getting too much land ; and I believe those farm ers are correct who assert that in this valley men will make more money on 160 or 200 acres than on 2,000 or 3,000. But everybody must, I suppose, fiud out such things. for himself. Trees have made a fine growth in the Alabama Settlement ; the orange, I was told, grows there of course it does not yet bear and no doubt tholive, walnut, and perhaps the almond would .do well with irrigation. From the end of the track the Visulia stage route leads across Firebaugh's Ferry, and at that point I remained to see something of a life quite different from that on the Merced side of the San Joaquii. On one side of the river are wheat fields ; on the other you find only cattle. Miller & Lux own 40 milas on the Western side of the San Joaquin ; and other persons own al most equally great tracts. It is said that Mr. Miller is the possessor of half a mil lion of acres in thi3 State ; he has nearly 100,000 cattle ; and being a shrewd busi ness man, he is fencing in his great es tate, to reserve it for his own cattle. He is rapacious for more land ; and is said to have determined that he will not rest un til he can drive his cattle over his own land from Los Angeles to the Sacramen to. Two men in San Francisco saw him sitting somewhere, lost in thought, and one asked, "I wonder what Miller is planning now?" The other replied, "He is making a little plan to buy the rest of the State." Miller & Lux have now about 125 miles of fence built, and will build 100 miles more this year. Some other great land owners have nearly as much. Fencing costs them from $500 to $650 per mile. Of course these are not the men who oppose ar'no fence " law. A Singular Case. Th Jackson Mich.) Citizen prints the 1 allowing : xienry miller, a drorar, was sent to State Prison by the Reeorder's Court at Detroit in February, 1870, for grand larceny for a term of three years. Miller says he housed his cattle one night on a farm in Wayne county, and the next morning his men drove an animal into the cars that did not belong to him. He sold it, and was arrested, tried and convicted as stated above. He had a father who was a millionaire, living in Albany count,y New York, but at his trial he neither applied to him for assist ance nor allowed him to be imformed of what was occurring. He had a cousin with him. .Charles Parker by name, from whom he extracted a promise never to write to him or to imforni his relatives of his whereabouts. Mr. Parker has faithfully kept the latter portion of his promise, as was evinced by a letter which Mr. Miller received from him a few days ago. From this, which we have been permitted to see, it appears that Miller had Bent, hia nntfln fr liio fottmi. -R..f vw.w v .LlUJl.l, ty JJU1' falo, and this was the last indication re- 1 1 - 1 . -. . ceivea ov nis mends to show that ho was living since his conviction.

At concerts he takes part in the performance, and one is often startled by hearing his melodious notes amid the exhilarating strains of one of iStrauss's waltzes, or amid the teadsr harmonies f Lumbye's "Visions in a Dream." Some people even speak of him as a vision in their dreams, and make odious allusions to the nightmars; but such persons are undoubtedly over sensitive. vve ii6 tne mosquito. iis note is not obtrusive, although he sometimes is There is such energy about him, such persistence, such a go-ahead quality, that one at onca knows he is to be amused whether he is in the humor for it or not. And, then, there is such fidel ity about the mosquito ; no slights, not even positive rudeness, can drive him away from those he likes and he is universal lover. He remains your friend in spite 01 yourself. We suppose there will be "more of him" here before long. It is a cheerful prospect for company during the sum mer when the rich people and the office holders are out of town idling their time away in "sea-side loiterings."

CHAPTER I. HOW THE tOT ORlGUrAT. Sear noon, the 5th of September, 1852, a man laboring under great excitement was walking hurriedly up Broadway, New York; His features were flushed and convulsed, his -glances wild and restless, bis whole mien indicative of keen anguish. j Turning to the right into Bleefcor street, he soon reached a plain three story and basement brick house, to which he gave hitasolf admit tance. . "Are you there, Kuth?"he called from the hall. . i A step was heard overhead, -foowed by.the rustling of a drpsei and a young lady descended the front stairs. Despite several points of marked contrast, there was a family likeness about the couple that proclaimed thorn to be baother aud sister.- I a, . J r " Why, what's the matter, Luke ?" cried the latter, starting at sight of the disturbed counte nance that met her view' " Are you ill ?" " I've just received bad news?' replied th& brother.loading the way into thnarlor "news which has given me a terrible shofck." Shocked ? 1'om : Wha has happened ?" " In a word, Clara Aymar is mairiod 1" , " Harried I" ' echoed the sister, recoiling. " Clara Aymar married 1 Is it possible ?J? j . " Yes, marriedl the girl I've beep laying fiege to for' years past the .pnly girl T ever c'aed pin for. Imagine the shock this event gives me. I'm nearly crazy." : '. ' " Then you really loved her ?"v j ' " Loved her I I must have worshipped her, or else this- thing would not have tp, completely upset me." " Oh, as to that, the loss of a thing always gives us an exaggerated notion of its valu, said the sister philosophically jas she sank lan guidly into an easy chair, and' smoothed out a :1 fold in her showy morning robe. You "are simply shocked, as you say.,. But by to-morrow you will laugh at the whole matter." "Don't Ruth T' Implored t&brother, sinking heavily into the nearest chair Clara Aymar, is more to me than my life 1 My love for her is a delirium 1 , It's no Buoh passing fancy as you suppose, but an everlasting passion a rag a flood of molten lava 1 And I've counted all along upon marrying her. True, Bhe has rejected me twice, but I thought she'd change her mind1 " She was in no way committed to you ?'' . " No, of course not. She has never given me any encouragement. " But I am none the less surprised. I supposed that everything was favorable enough to my wishes. I knew that she was still young to marry an orphan with out monoy and without friends presumably without suitors ; and I flattered myself that she couldn't always remain insensible to my attentions. Luke : but reason never decides these matters.'1 declared the sister, with a sort of contemptuous compassion. " A whim a chance meeting a smile or a word a moment's weakness any trifle these are the things by which marriages are brought about, nut who is tne onae eroom." " Ah ! that's a point that will touch yon a iittie, l tiunK. uan t you guess wno n is t " I haven't the least idea." " Well, then, he's Will. Hawley." The sister sprang abruptly to her feet, clasp ing both hands to her heart. The changing oiora oi dot Drotner,ms agnation, ma anguisn, all passed to her own featuros. Will. Hawley?" she gasped. "Oh, you don't mean it, Luke !" "But 1 do though. It's God's truth. Clara Aymar 'and Will. Hawley are husband and wifo." ' v ; 1 ' . A heavy fall succeeded. The sister had faint ad. She lay upon the floor as one dead. " Did she thiuk that much of Hawley?" mut tered the brother, astonished. ' I didn't sup pose " -.- ij , He hastened to bring a pitcher of water "and bathe the white featuros, and then set himself to chafing the clenched hands. Capt. Luke Pedder was twenty-seven years of age, with an originally light complexion, which had reddened with generous living and bronzed with exposure to wind and sun. His form was f the average size and height, and his features of the most ordinary type. He was singularly selfish and unscrupulous, but of gentlemanly manners, being well educated and used to good society. His ability as a navigator was fair for a man of his age and experience, but he owed his position a8 commander of a fine Australian clipper, more to respect for his late father and t0 jympatbizing favor than to his own merits. Miss Ruth Pedder was two years younger than her brther,and consequently twenty-five yaara oi age, aitnongn she ownea to only twenty. n was tall, thin, and a little inclined in her out lines, as in her temper, to angularity. She was not particularly bright, but she was1 bold and unscrupulous, and possessed a nerce energy which was capable of compensating in any emergency for laok of genius. - The father of the couple had been a prominent ship-owner and merchant. But: in his latter days the senior Pedder had been unfortunate, and had finally been broken up completely a result hastened, it was whispored. by the wild ways and financial irrogularities of his son. The old man's failure had soon been followed by his death, and already for such is fame 1 he was generally forgotten. " How odd it is I" ejaculated Capt. Pedder, as he rubbed his sister's cold hands. " She madly in love with Will. Hawley, and J crazy after Clara Aymar 1 And now Will, and Clara are married, and tfutn ana l are icic out in tne cold." Under the vigorous treatment he had adopted, Miss Pedder soon recovered her senses. " Are you sure they're married ?" she de manded. "Perfectly. I learned the fact half an hour since from Hawley's eommander Captain Oreggs, you know. Captain Gregg s was at the wedding. It took place last Friday evening the very evening after Hawley's return from his last voyage to Bio. It was a quiet affair. Only a few friends were invited. But let me ask you a question. Did Hawley ever propose to you I" " No. But I expected that he would soon do so. He has been here often enough " ' "Yes. he came several times to ask me for a berth in my clipper. I promised to think of mm at tne nrst opening, ana l reauy meant to help him, for I knew in a general way that you liked him." - . - - . " I thought he'd realize that you could be of service to him," explained Miss Pedder. " I thought he'd remember that mother left me this house and a few thousand dollars to Ao as I pleased with. I -was conscious, too, that I possessed a fair share of personal attractions. And as I supposed him to be entirely heart-free, I took it for granted that I should get him. His attentions seemed marked enough " " He treated you politely, of course," inter rupted Peddr, "and he couldn't haTe well done less, after asking me to befriend him. But he never made a..y formal declaration ?" " No, he didn't. As mate of a Bio ship, he was away fteven-eighths of the time, and I did n't expect a regular courtship. But I took it for granted " Pedder made an impatient gesture. . "We've deceived ourselves," he muttered. " We've beon carried away by our feelings. The girl's rejection of me was really intended to be final, and Hawley's visits here were mere ly visits of business and friendship. But why Clara should prefer Hawley to me 1 can't imag ine," added Pedder,' drawing -himself up haughtily. " Hawley has neither name, nor money, nor position !" " Nor can see why Hawley should prefer Clara Aymar to me I" said Miss Pedder, as she glanced at her reflection in one of the long mirrors near her. . " She's a hired attendant, or something of that kind tho creature." u I'd no idea that you thought so much of Hawley," observed the brothor, as he strove to calm his painful emotions. Miss Pedder moaned. Her eyes .filled with tears. " I thought all tho world of him," she mur mured. A long silence foil between the eouplej " Well, weir, they're "husband and wifo," at length muttered Pedder hoarsely. "And this, I suppose, is ail there is to be said." Miss Pedder' compressed her lips uniil they bled, staring at her brother .with a fixedness amounting to ferocity, o H ? . . i " No 1 no 1" she breathed fiercely. " The matter shall not end hero. That marriage that abominable marriage ". She clutched at her heart again, as if suffo cating. ; Pedder opened his eyes widoly. " Why, what can we do ?" he queried. "You wouldn t have me murder Hawley. I suppose ? That wouldn't nialio him your husband. And, on the other hand, it wouldn't do me any good if you were to kill Clara Aymar." " But there is a way, Luke, of undoing that marriage." Peddor started toward his Sister, as if elec trified. ... " Do you mean it ?" he demanded. " I mean it, and I swear it I I'll never cen scnt to that girl's having Hawley 1 I'll dig a gulf between them as broad as tho ocean 1 I'll undo that marriage, or die!" . " Softly 1 Where is Kato ?" He reforred to their single servant. " She'a out top tho day," answered Miss Pedder, arising and planting herself in a chair. " There was little to do, you know, as I did not cxpoct you home until dinner." " Then no one will hear us.". He drew a chair nearer to that of his sister and Bat down beside nor. " What's your idoa ?" he asked, in a whisper. " My idea is to separate them ; to turn their love to hate ; to dig a pit beneath their feet that will remain open forever 1" "But how?" " Will. Uawley li poor, Isn't h ?" "Certainly; there is no mistake about that. His mother was a helpless invalid for the last ten years of j her life, and Will, insisted .on her using for her comfort every penny he earned. Tt V.t mnT,tV mfnnm hoar., nlinul of that burden. He's poor, therefore, as you say poor as Job's turkey 1" . " Then he'll have to leave his darling Clara." sneered Miss Pedder venomously. "He'll have to absent himself from hiB deary in order to earn their mutual bread and butter. In short, he'll have to go to sea again 1" " Well, yes j I suppose he will," assented Pedder. "He can get better wages at sea than elsewhere. He'll sail again soon, no doubt." " I thoughts much. And the sea is full of terrible dangers 1. When do you sail again for Australia?" 1 1 A. - " In about two weeks possibly in ten days. as the ship's filling up rapidly." " Hawley is thoroughly competent to be your first mate?" : Pedder looked, wonderingly at his sister a moment, and then answered : '--j k " Of course. I know of no better man for the post." : "He must be your first mate, then. . You have influence enough with your owners, I hope, to turn out the present incumbent ?" v " Why, the post is already vacant. Mr. Jar ding you have seen him -Mr. Jarding has just been called home suddenly to Ohio, on account or bis lather s illness "Goodl That's fortunate. You must rec oftimeno, Hawley for the vacant place to yonr owners, ana f?et tnem to engage mm. in thing can be done?" ' ' " Without the least doubt. It was under stood, you know, as I Just now remarked, that I was to help Hawley at the first opportunity. We'll accordingly suppose that he sails with me as first mate the noit voyage. What then?" ; I' You must leave him not dead, but a pris oner on some desert island between here and Australia 1" . Pedder looked his astonishment. -"If it can be done," he said, after a Muse, "what, next?" " You must come back and report that he is dead, furnishing full details and good m-ocfa. Those details and proofs will not be difficult to manufacture. Then you must be all kindness and sympathy to the young widow, as Bhe will suppose herself to bo, and in less than a year thereafter she will be your wife." "Oh, if this thing were possible I" sighed Pedder, beginning to look relieved. . , " fasaxble T . It'e as simple as kissing. And the moment you are married to Clara. I will take a trip to Australia for my health, and naj4j uiauy euuugu, bvuuiuio upuu tuu very iniauu wnere you nave leit tiawiey ; enect ms rescue ; tell him his wife is dead ; condole and sympa thize with him like an angel ; and conclude the whole comedy by becoming his wife and sett ling in Australia, xou'll thus nave your Ulara, on this side of the ocean, and I shall be happy with Hawley on tho other." , , i,i n i She was smiling now, with every sigh of anti cipated triumch. ! As to Pedder he twisted "nervously in his cnair, scarcely venturing to oreatne. " There's iust one difficulty." he muttered " that of getting Hawley on the desert island wiinoui die suspecting anyiuing. " It can be done," and the lips of Miss Ped der came together like the laws of a vice " There's no difficulty about finding a suitable island?!' . "Not the least. I saw the island in my mind's eye the moment you uttered the'word, auu a giuriuus uuu i. is lur uur purpose, " It will be easy for you to get Hawley upon it." suggested Miss Pedder thoughtfully. " If it i near your route, you can call there for wa ter. If it's out of your way, you can be blown there by adverse winds, or be drifted there by unknown currents, or fetch up there by a mis take fn your reekoning or a fault in your chro nometer. And once there, you can have Haw ley Seized by some trusty agent, while he is ashore upon business, or you can send him ashore under some pretence, such as looking for a deserter from the ship or for a shipwreck ed sailor, and then sail away without him" " Say no more," interrupted Pedder, with wno exultation. " i see now to manage the affair from its beginning t its end." "And you now see that we can, undo that hateful marriage ?" j tk ' f. c, " Perfectly perfectly. The affair will require a little time and patience, of course, and a lit tle expenditure of money, but we are sure to triumph. Capital 1 glorious 1 What a load you have . taken from my souljButhl What a gemuft-you are 1 He leaped to his feet and began pacing to and fro rapidly, with the most extravagant . igns and exclamations of Joy J"- " First to get Hawley on his island," resumed Miss Pedder musingly. ' "Next for you to mar ry the pretended widow. Then for me to rescue the prisoner and marry him. And finally for you and me to be happy, you in your way, and I in mine you with Clara in New York, and 1 with Will, in Australia. You comprehend the whole project clearly ?' -' " From the fiost step to the last. There's only just one possibility of failure "And that one?" "A, refusal on Hawley's part to accept the post offered him a refusal based upon his marriage. -Miss Pedder turned pale at the thought. "But he won't refuse," she soon declared, recovering her equanimity. " He has long been wauwuKjusb eucn a yiaco. married or single, he ean't neglect his bread and butter." . " Well said, Buth. I think we can count upon him. The post he came here to ask me for is now vacant, and I will accordingly have it onerea to mm, just as it nothing had hap pened." " Exactly. You needn't speak of his marri age, ur otom w Know anyuung aDout it. xou can simply offer him the post in question, in accordance with the old understanding. And he will accept it. He can't, possibly have any suspicion ofanything wrong. Outwardly and apparently we are all on good terms with one another, and will remain so. Let the wagfs offered him be liberal. Possibly he may object to leaving his young bride so seon, but the next voyage after thin one" Pedder interrupted the remark by a gesture of impatience. He was all eagerness now all determination. " That next voyage after this one will not an swer," he declared. " Hawley shall accompany me on my very next trip.- To make all sure on this point, I, will have aim engaged this very day. In fact I will see to this now." V , He seized his hat and gloves, addressed a few words to his sister .and quietly took his depart ure down town. The last gianoes the couple exchanged at the door were full of jubilant The next three or four hours passed slowly to Miss Pedder. She was beginning to fear that the whole project had miscarried at its very commencement, and was fretting herself into a lever, wnen i-euuor suaaeniy made his appearance. One glance at his vivid flushes. at his dancing eyes, at his airy manner,-was "We triumph then?" she cried, throwing ncrseu into msarms ior tne nrst time in years: " Completely 1 I saw my owners on the sub: ject, and they sent for Hawley. He at first offered some objections, as was natural, but the high wages, the great step upward, the kindly interest we all manifested, soon brought mm to a graieroi acceptance i "SjMendid rmtirntured -Miss Pedder, with a riDDhng laugh. "I knew the thine war faitihtfl - And so in two weeks more our fond bridegroom will be plowing the sea again " - - 'In two iveeks more, Ruth ? We shall bo off in six or eignt oays. xne cargo is fairly tumb ling aboard the Flying Childers. to say nothing of a fair list of passengers. The honevmoon of our loving doves will be abridged to six short uays more, you may be certain." CHAPTER II. A OEEAT STEP -TAKEN. In the' midst of the Antarctic ocean, a little off the route from New York to Australia, there lies a large island named Kerguelen's Land, or as Capt. Cook called it the Island of Desola tion. V. S ' ; , It was discovered just a hundred jrcars go; (in 1112,) by the French naval officer whos name it bears. It was uninhabited then, and is to-day as deserted as ever. The smallest school-boy among our readers can find it upon his map of the world, about midway between the south end of Africa and Australia, well up toward the South Pole. - It is a hundred miles in length by fifty in breadth, and is consequently three or four times as large as Bhode Island. ... . Its coasts are so wild and dangerous that its discoverer, during the two expeditions that he made to it, did not once bring his ships to an chor in any of its bays and harbors. Its shape ia very irregular, but something like that of an hour-glass, it being nearly cut in two by a couple f large bays ; but these two divisions are unequal in size, the northern pen insula being much larger than the southern. Its coastline is wildly broken and jagged, its innumerable gulfs being long and narrow, and lis promanwnea are curreapunuingiy Oliarp ana slender, reaching out into the ocean like fin gers.. - The body of the island indeed resembles that of some huge monster of the antediluvian world even as its capes and headlands resemble such a monster's unsightly limbs and claws. . . A more terrific solitude than this isle of Deso lation does not exist upon our wrecked planet. Neither the snows of Himalaya nor the sands of Sahara can outvie its terrors. ' ' - No inhabitant is there, not even a savage no house, no tree, no shrub, no fence nor road, no field nor garden, bo horse, no dog not even a snake or a wolf. Lone, blasted and barren, it looks like the skeleton of a land that has perished. It may indeed be that Desolation is the relic the surviving fragmont of a continent that wont down here ages ago. with hosts of inhabi tants, in some vast convulsion of nature. It has certainly undergone dreadful visita tions ; been rent by earthquakes, pulverized by frosts, lashed and wasted by fierce tempests. Its mountains- are only of moderate height, but are capped eternally with snow. , Its vegetation is limited to a fewvdwarfish plants, including somo mosses, a species of lichen, a ccarse grass, a plant resembling a small cabbage, and a sort or cress. Its winds are raw and piercing, it summers cold and frosty, its winters those of the Polar Circles. The interior of the island is oeenniefl hv 1m. mense boggy swamps, where th gronnd sinks at avery step. The rains in Desolation are almost incessant, in their season, and the island is accordingly veiued with numerous torrents of fresh water, some oi which nave worn out oi tho solid rock tremendous cavities and gullies. Tn only other season than that of the rains is one of almost constant snow. ..The foes of that ehastlv region are well worthy ef the rains, being of a cloud-like den sity, and hovering almost continually over the whole face of the island. The sun of Desolation is usually hidden by a canopy of lead-colored clouds, and appears, on the rare occasions when it iB visible, scarce ly brighter than the moon in other latitudes. As to the moon itself, ud the stars, the clouds and fogs' rarely permit them to betray their existence 'f ' - No fish worthy of note, not even . fishes of prey, abound in tbe adjacent waters, by rea son, poi naps, or tneir containing poisonous minerals, or deadly exhalations from the vol- canic fires beneath them, a i Yet the dark- grim sea inclosing Desolation has done something to repair the sterility of the lsiana. Pecruins. dunks, gulls, cormorants and other marine birds 'are plentiful in some of its har bors. Seals also abound. .I Strahgaand terrible land 1 Not a Bingle human being, so far as is known, has ever lived there, save as is now to be re corded in these pages. Near the middle of a dull, dismal afternoon, some' eleven weeks-later than tho date of the preceding events, the good ship fflying Chttders urew near to tne lsiana oi uesoiation, snaping her course toward its northernmost bay, called by Captain Cook, Christmas Harbor. A fair breeze was blowing from tho North, and the ship was carrying every stitch of her canvas, including studding-sails. ner crew ootn watcnes were ousy about the deck, and her passengersa score in num bershad gatherea in" group's, mostly forward, and were gazing with great interest upon the wild, rugged shores before them, so far as the fog suspended upon those shores permitted them to become visible.. The ship had come here for water, nearly all her water casks having been stove or started during a squall ten days previously, and every soul aboard of her having bean since that dato upon shart allowance. Upon the quarter-deck stood Capt. Luke Pedder, looking unusually happy, with Will. nawiey oesiae mm. - i'l-mean to get bur"water aboard before dark:. Captain. Pedder, and so avoid losing a night here," said the young executive, totally unconsciouH of the plot to leave him alone on the desolate island, and of the extraordinary adventures which were before him.
