"And I go with him, to share, by my life-long reverence and honor as his loving wife, to efface from his noble heart the very memory of these cruel in sults."

A Walter spoke, the old man's frame literally shivered in the strong blast of passion that swept over him his eyes kindled, nis nostrils dilated and his teetn were set in the effort to restrain the bursting, furious words that roso from his heart to his lips, Scarce had his nephew concluded, when he seized his :.i-m with a grasp ot iron, and said "Do yon know what it is you are aK- ing me to do?

Wal ter, should she not stay till you can take her to her Irish homo? aud- then I shall come to claim her as my own.' "Xo," shrieked Sir .Michael, whosa to drive the hated son of Henry Lyle from the house that owns my name." And he stood back with folded arms, aud hastly look ot hatred and dehance, while his step-son slow I v passed him. followed by Lilias and Walter. And so those three rtcn in their own lair qualities their love, their truth and their devotiou went out from the house that had been their home, into the calm twilight, for already, this day, so mo mentous to all parties, was drawing to a close. The two young men held a brief con-. sulfation as to what was to be done, while Lilias leaned on Hubert's ami, a ml watched Walter. Finally thev decided ou taking her.to the house of the rector, whose wire, a kind aud worthy woman, loved her dearly, and gladly received her to her care. Hubert and Walter pent the night at the inn, and next morning all three proceeded to Ireland, where their welcome Irom their good old grandfather was such as to make them almost forget, at once, the dreary scenes through Which they had so lately passed. . : CIIAPTKR XXVI. Some six months had passed away, and the sweet spring-time had come to the rejoicing earth again. But great and Important changes had passed over wcll uigli all the actors of the strange drama we have been recording. In the home of Lilias' grandfather. the good old pastor of Kenmare, there dwelt a fair aud gentle bride, not many weeks the wlte or one who almost lea red to lovelier more intensely than any mor tal creature on this earth should be loved. There was little of change upon her bright young face, only, it may be, there Was something of matronly quiet visible lit her graceful movements. And through the old church of Kenmare now, at morning and at eveidng prayer, there swells sucli thrilling and lovely strains of music as never were heard there be fore, drawn bv a skilful hand from the old organ that had stood so long, silent and unnoticed in it dusky corner, and Which, since the day when a gladsome bridal train Knelt around that alter, had riven rorth this glorious . harmony to ead the sones of. praise. When the worship is concluded, and the white haired pastor returns to his home, through the devVy fields with his sweet grand-daughter, the musician walks be side them, holding most often her small nann in nis own, and sinning with a glad look of perfect content when she says that she loves the honest calling by which they earn their living. Then mingled with her merry voice another scarce less sweet will answer, and Lilias' bright-eyed cousin Ellen Forster, who had supplied her place to the Old pastor lit her absence, would dart away from Walter's side to gather nowers in the lleids, well knowing the witchery ot her charms will draw him alter,. Wherever she may please to lead. ' 45 ',, t There are sounds of joy and revelry at Kandolph Abbey, though but a short time has elapsed since its-master was borne from the doors he never more should pass, followiug the name road which his haughty wife had taken when in her first humility she was brought down at once to the very dust; as though even to the grave he could not choose but hasten after her. in whose shadow; he had crept his whole life through. Sir Michael Randolph lay in the dark vault, side by side with Hubert's mother, but there was leasttug in the house that had called him lord so long, aud from the gleaming windows the light shown far out on the terrace whence laiias had watched the mournful return of Ladv Randolph, and where a dark figure paces to and fro, heedlesss of the chill night air.

He, too, has been taught a lesson front the anguish which Aletheia's disappear ance cost him, and he is penitent, as we said, yet without the vividness of that remorse which corrodes the very soul of Uabnel. He has learned that their love was idolatrous, aud therefore it ha; met its punishment, and, bowing his head, he acknowledges not only tlie justice of the sentence, which commanded then- entire separation, but the mercy which assigns to them so bitter a portion In this lite, haply in order to insure them a blissful meeting on the eternal shore, He does not believe flint Aletheia has destroyed herself he thinks that, for asmuch as her generous love grew to idolatry, insensibly to herself, and from no wilful sin, she can not have been thus left to herself, but rather he thinks she has been withdrawn into some solitude where she may give the remnant of her life to repentant and to prayer.' He has resolved that his own shall be thus spent, and so, when the period of their imprisonment lu this world is over, he trusts they shall go forth Into the gloii- ous ' liberty of the redeemed and par doned soul's. ' ' ' ' CHAPTER XXVII. It is evening, and the family are as sembled iu the little parlor at Kenmare. Hubert is writing for the old grand father, whose eyes are growing dim, aud who rejoices to have the assistance of his dear son whenever I.e requires it. Lilias sits on a low stool at her husband's feet reading, while Kllen aud Walter are seated at tne open window, ostensibly beholding the beauty of the sunset, and conversing together in low tones that are full of happiness. Suddenly, how ever, they are disturbed by the arrival of a letter for Walter.- It was in a hand writing unknown to him, and re-directed from Randolph Abbey, where it had originally been sent. It was signed by a Mr. Brook, rector of a parish not above forty miles distant from their owu, and staled that it was written at the request of a relation of Walter's who was, the writer grieved to say, at the point of death, and who was desirous of obtain ing from him certain information con cerning a friend, which would render the close of life more peaceful, and the last moments free from agitation. The letter concluded by saying that the dy ing person earnestly implored of Walter not -to communicate its contents to any one, but to come instantly, and relieve the anxiety that alone seemed to hold a wearied soul in life. This request, however, Walter failed not in infringing at once, for scarce had he read the note when he started up, aud flying to Lilias thrust it into her hands, exclaiming " Is it not Aletheia? it must be." " Undoubtedly there can not be a questiou. O, how thankful I am that she is found at last. But dying! Dear, dear Aletheia ! And so near to us, when we never dreamed of it. O, let us go, Hubert, Vt alter; let us hasten then ithout delay, lest we be too late." " lou are right, Lily, ' said Hubert. You must go. as well as Walter, for ou can best explain the miserable delu- ion which has killed her but I go too; s u red I v I w ill not quit you. Aud let s proceed at once, for too much time has been already lost by this letter hav ing gone to England."' All parties were ajfi-eed that this was the only course to be pursued, and a con veyance .having been procured the cous- ns set out with Hubert tor the village indicated bv Mr. Brook. Notwithstanding their utmost haste, it was morning before they reached the Rectory, and when they found them selves ushered into the room where thev were to wait for the master of the house, Lilias' lace was blanched with terror lest they had come too late. He came in at once: a tall, tine-looking man, ad- auced in years, and with a grave and thoughtful countenance. One sponta neous cry burst from the lips of all three "Is Aletheia alive?" "Just living, and uo more," he an swered. Then, glancing with surprise and considerable displeasure on the group, he said, "She requested Walter Randolph to come alone. And so I should, had the circum stances been as she supposes," said Wal ter; " but she is laboring under a tatal mistake." I can explain It in one word," said Lilias, coining forward. " Aletheia has, no doubt, confessed to you her whole history on her death-bed, if not before?" " .she lias," replied the Rector. " Then certainlv she has spoken to you oi J.inaj .Randolph r " i.inaonDtediv." "You will understand it all then when I tell vou that I bore that name, and that It is mine no longer, for this Is my hus band, Hubert Lvle." Hubert Lyle," exclaimed Mr. lirook in the utmost astonishment, "and Syd ney " "Never had a thought of any but herself. It was a wretched plot against her poor, unhappy Alethia. And Lilias proceeded to explain the whole circumstances to him, known as thev are to our readers, for the mystery had all been made clear to herself long since bv Sydney. He had discovered the sham which Gabriel's mother had, in her wretched deception, practiced on Aletheia, at the period ot her removal from her cottage to be the Lady of Ran dolph Abnev, aud this ot course gave s clue to the whole affair. Mr. Brook lis tened with the most intense interest, and then said "How mysterious is the wisdom that guides our lives. Wonderfully, indeed, has this been ordered. Her agony was all built upon a false foundation, and yet how sanitary it has been, bhe would not herself have asked to be spared one drop of all that bitter cup." 'Oh, telllus of her state of mind bet ore we see her. Is she then resigned, and how did she come here?" said laiias. "I will gladly tell you all, but I must be very brief, for I remember her mo ments are numbered. ' He then stated that some six months previously he had been sitting in his study one" evening, when some children burst into the room almost paralyzed witli terror, and declared that a dead woman had come out ot her grave, and was ly ing beside it in the churchyard. Jlehad gone at once to ascertain the truth as to this incredable story, and had found Aletheia, looking, indeed, strangely like a corpse, stretched among the tombs. He at once had her removed to his owu home, where his mother, who lived with hiin, had tended her with the utmost care, assisted, of course, by a physician. it was some days Delore she tuny re gained her consciousness, aud when she did awake to a renewed existence, the only words she uttered were such as to indicate a state ot deep and rebellious sorrow. It was with difficulty she could even be induced to take nourishment, but it was soon evident, as the weeks passed on, that her sufferings, joined to the fatigue of her terrible journey, had sown the seeds of a disease which was hurrying her rapidly to the tomb she so much desired. Mr." Brook, who was a man of uncompromising piety, felt that he could not let her sink into her grave in the perilous state of rebellion and deadness to religion, iu which she evi dently was. It was then, with an ex treme severity, and a sternness of aspect, which well-nigh terrified Aletheia, that he one day took her trembling hands in his, and compelling her to look at bim. told her that she was about to die the end she so much desired was at hand, but so surely as she lay before him a dy ing womanbe bclieve'd that if she went to her judgment, the indifferent, Impen itent, rebellious sinner he now beheld her, the long-sought death would be to her only the harbinger of eternal pun ishment. Lite had been giveu her to prepare for eternity a difficult, all-absorbing task, aud she had dared to tling it away, with all Its powers and its wasted opiiort unities, on some human passion that held her a blind aud willing cap tive. Much more he said in words too sacred to be recorded here, and Aletheia woke from her long spiritual lethargy iu horror ami trembling. She had be lieved herself unfortunate. She never before had known herself guilty be cause her love was pure, she thought it must tie sinless, even in its madden ex tent, and now, like Sydney, she saw it was idolatry. It is needless to pause to detail the progress of the blessed change. that each clay wrought in her from that very hour. " Now in this, her dying hour, it was complefo aud the merciful discipline was over sh lay ou the brink of the grave, the most humble of' penitents, weeping for her wasted life, and scarcely daring to hope that in the dread hereafter, pity could be shown to one so sinful yet doing what, she could while the. fading life endured, in repar ation of the past,' and at last, with per fect charily with all men, sending for Walter, as the one least likely to be pained at seeing her die, to convey, through hlni, her entire forgiveness and blessing to Syuuey and Lilias. Mr. Brook rose when he had finished his account, which drew tears even from the two young men though tears of joy rather than of -sorrow; He aid he thought it would be best that he himself should communicate to her the truth concerning Richard Sydney, lest so un expected a revelation should disturb the peace of the departing soul, with a de sire of renewed life. In about half an hour he returned and told them, with a smile of pleasure, that Aletheia had met this last test of her en tire submission to the will ofHeaven,with something far more beantiful than com mon resignation. She said this alone could be added to Heaven's mercy, and her ample cause for gratitude, that she should learn how truly Sydney was without reproach, innocent even of a wavering affection, and that his crnel treatment had been but the fulfilment, torturing to himself, of a rigorous vow once taken by her father's bed of death. One pet if ion she had made. She had asked, if it were not too much indulgence that Sydney might be sent for and that she might see him once again. It seem ed to her that she would die and he would live more calmly if they met for the last time here below. She desired to tell him he must not grieve, but he very grateful for her departure and still more, she longed to make him compre hend iu what anew and awful light this present world,and that which is to come appeared unto her dying eyes that saw so clearly. Further Aletheia said that she greatly desired to see Gabriel, iu or der that "she might assure him that he had her complete forgiveness for the deadly plot he had conceived against her, Mr. Brook requested, therefore, that Walter should write at to summon both, anil he would send a special mes senger with the letter, that they might arrive as soon as possible. 1 his being done Lilias exclaimed anxiously, "And now let us see her,." vou shall," said Mr. Brook, she expressed a wish to see you all, but she likewise desired I would explain to you that it will be best for you to speak very little to her, if at all. .she received tins morning the last rites of the Chnrch.and she is naturally desirous to be as little concerned now in the things of this world as may be." Thev acquiesced at once in this view and followed him silently into her room. Was it indeed a chamber of death, that cheerful apartment, with its lattice win dow, thrown open wide, through which the sunlight beamed full on the sno w whitc draperies of the lowly couch ? A nd was this Aletheia lying there? Aleth eia, whom they had remembered, with the fixed despairing countenance and the mournful eves. How bright are they now, with the radience of a hope divine how beautiful that face in its pure serenity. Glad was the smile that beamed upon her pale lips when she saw them, and but lor tier emaciated form and expressive feebleness, they must have believed she was a being re turning to life and health, rather than passing rapidly away. She lifted her wasted arms so far as her strength ier- mitted, to embrace Lilias, and then giv ing her hand to Hubert and waiter sne murmured to each one the same low- whispered words "Pray for me that I may be forgiven." This done she gently closed her eyes, and at- a sign from Mr. Brook, the two young men left she room. But Lilias.by an imploring glance obtained leave to remain beside her,quiet and silent. Three days and nig-hts they watched over her, while she seemed hovering be tween life and death. Often it seemed to Mr. Brook impossible that she could survive until Sydney came, and he would gently tell her so, but her onlv answer was to Iww her head in meek submission and give one upward glance as though she commended ner Deioven and all his necessities to better care than hers. ' On the morning of the fourth day they expected him but it was evident to ail that she was sinking fast and when at last a carriase, driven with furious speed to the door, announced his arrival they feared to see her breathe her last in the sudden excitement. She seemed, however, on the contrary, to gather the little lite that vet. remained in her pow erless frame, into those few supreme moments, and all present, inclndingMr, Brook, left the room that, she might see him alone, it hail been so arranged by general consent lor all loir, that the in terview was too sacred -to be seen by any human being. One glance Lilias had of Sydney's countenance, as he hur ried past her, with his haggard, anxious eves and white compressed lips. ' But when about nn hour afterward, they were called, somewhat hastily, to conui and take their leave of Aletheia, she was astonished at the change which had ta ken place in him. He was kneeling be side Aletheia, supporting her head on his arm. And his look was serene and hopeful as her own. Once only the human feel ings seemed to reassert their sway, and as he felt that the heart that had beat for him alone ou earth was throbbing fainter and fainter, and soon would be stiil forever, '.he suddenly bent down over her and said, iu a voice of anguish "Oh! Aletheia who will love me as you have done?" Gently she opened her eyes am whispered "On earth none but I myself, if iii-v, in eternity, with a purer, holier love." Then he answered 1 " It is enough,'" and was no more troubled. Gabriel had by this time arrived, and Aletheia diseugaged herself, even Irani Svdnev, that she might give him her band, and tell him, iu her faint, failing voice how entirely she forgave him. His entreaties for pardon and exclamation of remorse were piteous to hear, aud when she had done all she could to com fort him, he retired into a corner of the room, there ou his knees, with clasped hands and streaming eyes, to watch the death of her lie had killed. i He had not long to sutler in that fear ful vigil the closing scene was soon over, nor shall we linger on the parting moments. It suddeuiy seemed to aytw ney that Aletheia pressed his baud ; he stoojicd down close to her, and heard her give a feeble sigh; a taint breath passed from her lips to his, and when he raised his head to look, ou her he saw- that her face was sublime with that ex pression of solemn rct which no living mortal can ever know. . . It was about a month after the death of Aletheia that : a letter was again brought into the little parlor at Ken mare, where the same party were assem bled, but this time it was addressed to Lilias. It came from Gabriel, and sta ted that he was, as she well knew, a changed and repentant man, and that he was resolved to spend the. remainder of hi3 life in some active work in the cause of religion, as the only moans whereby he might redeem the time ere yet it was too late. He then continued to say he felt sure they would all understand that it was Impossible for him to retain the Abbey, gained by such uulawful means. To Lilias it would have be longed, by Sir Michael's owu will, had he not. Interfered with his hateful art, whereby he had succeeded In driving Ills three cousins from their hones. Now, therefore, she would find, by cer tain deeds placed at his lawyer's, that he had made it over to her, and her heirs. irrevocably and forever. Nor would It be possible for her to oppose his inten tion, ns this letter would only reach her when he had crossed the sens to anoiher hemlsphere, where no clue to bis as sumed name or residence would ever be given to her. The Lyles and Walter found, upon In vestigation, that it, was even ast.anriei said. He had reserved a small Inde pendence for his mother, who was gone to the Continent, hut all the rest was le gally and undeniably secured to 'Lllias, and "there remained no alternative bat that she should take possession of the broad lands aud the noble Abbey.. -: Then ensued a combat of generosity between herself. nd Walter for she de cl&redshe would only accept the inherit ance provided he would share it with her and he as positively affirmed that it was hers and hers alone aud he would have nothing to do with it. The ' con troversy might have lasted long enough had not ; Hubert found an expedient wherby to settle it completely.. ,11 gravely informed Walter that he had ob tained a promise ftom Ellen Foster to reside always with Lilias, and therefore if Walter desired to eujoy her society ,he must, of necessity,, make his home at Randolph Abbey. ' And so it came to pass on a fair sum mer's evening, Walter and Ellen being rbsent on their wTeddiug tour, that Hu bert aud Lilias Lyle w;ere received, on their arrival at the Abbey, in the old hall where first they met, by the numer ous retainers over whom they were to rule. And thus it proved, in the mysterious Decree, whereby the evil purposes of men arc turned to good, that the very victims whom Sir Michael persecuted with such luirelenting hate, in order that he might never have so much as a home at the Abbey, became the actual, possessor, of it, and aliode there for the remaiuder of his life. But noiie grudged the inheritance to him and his sweet wife, for none could have borne their honors with greater meekness or disbursed their wealth for the good of others with more unsparing hand. Thev lived a long and happy it'e together, blest in one another and they never grieved 'that no other ties came to wile them away from their one absorbing atVeetion for each other for they did especially love to look on Wal ter s happy children and feel that in thein they beheld those who would suc ceed them without- any Test of the Heirs.

' A National Conventiou of delegates rep resenting one ot the great political par ties of a Republic like ours, called to nominate a caudidate for President, is ilways interesting. No other country. presents such a spectacle. The best abil ity is assembled. The sages and states men and the young men of the party ike part in the deliberations, w hich are requeutly interrupted by high excite ment, aud made historical by electrical displays of oratory. The vindication by Judge Holt, of Kentucky, of the char acter of Richard M. Johnson iu the Nat ional Convention at Baltimore, thirty- six years ago, was a magnificent burst of eloquence. I read it in Greeley s cw Yorker," on that day, which spoke of it as a gem of finished retoric.

Butler, Mr. Van Buren'a ex-Attorney General, and Robert J. Walker, Senator in Con gress from Mississippi, in the conven tion of 1844, ou the two-thirds rule, van Bureii, defeated in 1810 by Harrison, was again a candidate tor the nomina tion, but he was faltered on the timexa tion of Texas, and though he had a clear majority of the delegates, the adoption of the two-thirds rule ruined Ids : pros pects. Butler was no match for the keen little Senatorial Saladin ; and when he rose to reply the House - had already been conquered by the logic of his ad versary. , That convention was James liuchaunau s first appearance as an as pirant for President, and had he remain ed in the field he would assuredly have lieen the condidate against Mr. Clay, Pope was an accidental selection, and was uever dreamed of 1 ill the conflict- made a compromise necessary.

The youthful murderer, a boy named Justin Dunn, is now in the Tombs awaiting trial. Monday morning another boy prisoner attempted to transcend . the criminal act of .Dunn. The shoe shop has of late been the scene of rebellious conduct toward the keepers by a boy prisoner named Thomas .McDonald. Monday morning at 10 o'clock, Mr. Thomas Bucanan, the assistant foreman of the shoe shop, found McDonald con versing with some fellow prisoners in violation of the rules. He threatened to report him to the warden, when Mc Donald caught up a shos knife which lay on a bench and attacked him.

Where there is not a nat ural eddy, they sometimes create one by throwing out a rude -wing-dam. Thev select eddies, because it is there the sal mon consrreirate to rest themselves. At the head of the eddy they erect ftsbing- oootn.s, over tne water, oy planting slen der poles over the water, and regular raiters overhead, on wnicu. brushwood is placed for a screen against the suu and moon. In one of these really pictur esque booths an Indian sleeps at night. with a string leading up from the net to his fingers; so that when a salmon be gins to flounce in it he is awakened.

Again, tncy construct a weir of willow stakes nearly across the stream at tne snauows, leaving only a narrow chute, wherein is set funnel- shaped trap of splints, with a funnel- shaped eutrauce at tho large end. The salmon easily shoots Into this, bnt can not return.
