I HE next day Hiss Livingston i rode into the city to do some shopping, and made it in her ' wav to call at her lawyer's. Mr. Vanstone's, and seemed quite surprised .when -Arthur St.- Orme answered ber "summons. She ecu It not have been more so, if she had not happened, to . know that Sir. Vanstone bad gone up to Fredrtcton tor a weeic ! It was quite astonishing how very nerDlexins and unintelligible she found ' her business affairs, and what an amount of exolanations were necessary, even in : volving the necessity of St. Orme's com ins! uo to Lindenwold that evening! " He hinted that nerhaus Mr. Vanstone would understand the matter belter,- but she - was quite -sure he would do equally .as - well. . And so he promised, with -p'er- ;; haps a little seeret feeling of pleasure at .' .the prospect of a tete-a-tett with so beau- tirui aua tiign-orea a iaay as miss lusston. - - '": ' ! - Then Mis9 Livingston drove-to the . Commercial and drew a hundred pounds, which she carelessly, thrust in a heavy, crimson silk purse, and stepped into her .'carriage, and was driven leisurely up Prluce .William street. She 'looked pleased and satisfied, and a emile hov ".red, like a tender thought; about the full, crimson lips. It was an elegant ' carriage, and the span of noble chest nuts did not disgrace it. Many an ad miring eve was turned toward the car riage and iti charming occupant. She knew it, and her darkening eye and heightened color told that the love of admiration was one of the'"ruling pas Vslonsof her life. Perhaps she w as not displeased, when a crowd on Duke street caused them to pause an instant, to see the fine face of the young rector at her carriage window. In the midst of ber cordial greetings, the door of a drinking shopjbut a few feet from; her," .opened, and a young man of some seven or cight-and-twenty emerged with an unsteady gait, and crossed the street directly in i'ront of her horse's heads. If only something would startle them! The thought flashed through her brain, and for the moment Olive Livingston was in heart a fratricide. Something about the horse attracted the man's eye, and lie elanced back. A look of surprise lighted his stolid face, and lifting his hat, made a ludicrous now anu nourisn . towards the occupant of the -carriage. Misr Livingston tried to put on an in different manner, anu to appear amused but there was an angry red on her ' ' cheek, and' a fire in her eye that she uinld not nuite hide, and which embar rassed both parties so much, that both felt relieved when the street was clear, and the interview thus necessarily ter minatad : - ' ' "Am I to be disgraced and insulted in this manner, in the public streets, by him!" she muttered, through her shut teeth, "woum it be much of a crime. 1 -wonder, to rid the world of such a fel low?" She shuddered and drew her , tfhawl closer around her these autumn ..winds are getting rather chilly.. , . That evening Arthur St. Orme came out to Lindenwold. Miss Livinsston herself had appointed the hour, and it was so close upon oBlee hours, that he had not time to run down to tiie cottage even for a moment, nlthouirh he rjrom- ised himself that, he would hurry through the business, and step in a mo- , ment before bo went back to the city 1 He wanted to look in Annie's blue eyes, and perhaps with a lover's freedom, hold .her in his arms a moment, before he went back to the bustle! and confusion, and weariness of another day's toll. He stopped at .Sir. Vaustone's a large por tion or tiie time nowr only coming uotne Saturdays, and once or twice for an eve ning in the course of the week. But his thought of seeinz Annie that night -was defeated, for never was busi Be9 in such urgent need of atteotion as Kiss Livingston's, and never was client so agreeable and suave before. .. And long oei ore J&is xavingsion nau re leased him,, the lights m the cottage were out; but poor little-Annie sat at her chamber window, watcbins the red glow which eame through the crimson curtains of ttic Lindenwold library.with a heavier heart than .five months before she had gat, that: first nigbt of her com ing, and watched the steady tramp, of a pair of unconscious feet through the June dew. - ' CHAPTER X. Ik the hninble chamber in Germain street, there sat au unbidden guest. And yet, stern, and unrelenting, be waited in grim silence, while choking sobs and pieauing prayers icit aitae unneeueu. The fair race among uie .pillows was lit tle altered, ' save that a eerener smile parted the pale Jips, and the great brown eyes mirrored more the celestial bright ness of tnal neaven to wmcu uiey were so near.-. "Ob, Alice, if you could only take me with" -vou 1 You will, see them all- father, and mother,' and Hairy and I shall be toiling on here alow, all alone !" and the sweet voice died away in a sweet, unutterable wail; ' "Amy, it is His will. V You must not murmur at It, darling. Maybe, if I am permitted, I shall come back to comfort you. I have suffered so much that perhaps it is seinsn out i am giao, save that It grieves you, to be released. You will not want for friends, dear" A ftowsr keau rose suddenly from the window-seat, and a choking voice ex claimed : : ' "If there Is anything the likes.of me can do to be of sarvice to such a sweet young creature" . And then the voice quite broke. down, and the frowsy head, with, its broad, scarred lace, went sud denly down on the window again. "Qod bless you, faithful, tender friend.f", said the steady voice of the dy ing girl. - 'Come here, Tininiy, I want to look in rour honest face once more.'f She took his biz band in ber thin, white one,' and carried it reverently to ber lips. He .made a deprecatory ges ture, but she said: . ; j - 'The v saved my me once, ana tney have served me often since. It is a poor return but it is all I have to give ; but my heart is in the act, simple as it is, and you will think of it sometimes, and of the little gin wno gave it io you witn ber dving breath ... ; , V . , "OS mr sweet, darling young lady, it's a rich man 1 am with so priceless a gift, sure 1 'I'd gladly go through a thousand nres, li i eouiu save your prec ious young life!'!., he said, with a wist ful look on his tearful lace. But no such sacrifice could be accep ted, for while the grave, solemn words of prayer went up .from her lips of the young rector, who "sat by her bedside, Wltn a smile sun on ner lips, ana ine seal of eternal peace on her stainless brow, the pure spirit of Alice Clair went noiselessly but with' the 'waiting mes senger, and .only .the beautiful clay re mained. It was a small procession .that fol lowed the young English girl to her humble burial place lor Amy insisted on going as far as' she could into the val ley of ' shadows with her dead. Miss Livingston came into the funeral, and very considerately called- and took Mr. and -Mrs. Vanstone,'" "and 'Arthur St. Ormo. Paul Bussel. went himself with Amv. oor child, chided herself for the faint glow of bapptness that crept into her bleedlnz heart, as sne, leaneq on nis strong armband, listened to:. his earnest words of faith and' hope.

Aijd Timuiy; Bryne,: who was Just behind them, thought, as he lifted his face for a moment from the damp folds of his red . silk handkerchief, that the rector "desarveda good roasting In purgatory, that he did, if he left that sweet Knglish violet for the haughty lady of Linden wold l" Jr. or Tinimv nau very Keen eyes, and sa w what perhaps the parties them selves had never more than half suspec ted. - h: -; ,i .. . , But while this was transpiring in the city, a strange thing happened at Lin denwold. a The servants were all away, save, Asa, and. he might as well have been) for he was sound asleep in the sta ble loft. - . Annie . Wallace, who had taken to watching Lindenwold almost constantly of late, saw from her chamber window, a man go round the north wing and enter the bouse by fhe side entrance. At first thought,- she- supposed it. to be Arthur. He had been there several times of late, and somehow she fancied that he seemed annoyed when she bad spoken of it.. And so she called her pride to aid,, and grew cool and distant, and even went so tar as to refuse to see him upon one or two occa sions, when he had come out on purpose to see her. At first, Arthur bad a dim suspicion- that it niight.be because-of bis visits at Lindenwold, ana tie would nave explained to. her,' only she would not give him the chance1; and .beside, Miss Livingston had once or twice intimated that Annie was really getting quite par tial to young Randolph, the son of a neighboring farmer; - but then, she added, "Annie was but a child yet, and probably didn't know her own mind ;" adding, with oneot her peculiar glances,' that "probably ftis interests were sate, as Annie would obey her mother, and everybody Knew her mctner's preferen ces. ' -.- Arthur knew that John Randolph had at one time been deeply in love with Annie, aud the uncertainty of his suc cess, had given him more than one heartache. But that was a Ion z time airo. and since the day when she had put her little nana in ins, ana declared tuat "she didn't care for John Randolph one bit." aduiittuiz atlhe same time, with many a shy, . blush and smile, that she did care for somebody else, he had never doubted her until since Miss Livingston came.' And so a coolness grew up be tween them, and Miss Livingston, look- ine on. smiled quietly- to herself, and thought how very soon Bne wouia De able to defy tleoffry his claims aud his secrets. The three mouths which she had asked, were, indeed, only a clever little ruse to gain time, which Ueofrry, shrewd as he was, did not suspect. : It was this thought that gave the exultant flash to her eyes, as, glanclne from her carriage window on her return lrom the burial of Alice Clair, she saw hlin walking lels urely down the street. That same night Arthur fet. Orme had resolved to see Annie and have a full explanation. He had tried to put tiie thought out of his mind, but Ills love . was of too long a grwth to be thus easily eradicated, and he naa resoivcu to see Annie, anu it sue no longer cared for him, to leave the old home and all its tender associations. for some place he hardly knew or cared where where everything did not so continually remind him or the happy past. Somehow, as ho thought it over, all his troubles daled from the arrival of Mis Livingston, who, looking out with a pale, excited face, informed him that she was coming to town expressly to see Mr. Vanstone. but that- he could do equally as well; and bidding the driver turn the horses', heads, she opened the door, moving so that he might sit down beside her. Annie had been thinking a good deal .aboiit-themaaahe.hail.seea enter Lin denwold that afternoon. She knew now that it was not Arthur, for she saw him when he. came out, and he was taller and darker. It might have been a burg lar, aitnougn a ourgiar would nardiy come so boldly, she thought. However, she resolved to go up and inform Miss Livingston of what she had seen. Near ly opposite Livingston House she met John Randolph,-and almost at the same moment, Miss 1 Livingston's " came from towards town and turned up the drive. John find a light buggr, and, in a friendly manner, invited her to take a drive to town with him. "No, John," she said kindly, "not to night. 1 have, got to go up to Linden wold;" glancing in that direction just as et. tjrme-was nanding Miss Livings ton from her carriage. A sudden change swept over- her face, and the blue eves flashed as royally as ever Miss Livings ton's did, as, with a strong effort she controlled herself sufficiently to say, in an indifferent tone : "I think I will go, John, after all. It will be just as well to go up to Linden wold in the morning, and one might as well enjoy this fine autumn weather, before the long, dreary winter shrieks over its forgotten grave." She shud dered slightly, and drew her shawl closer about her. as John gathered up the reins and drove off. , rA shadow of disappointment settled over the face of St. Orme, which was not lightened by the meaning look that Miss Livingston cast after them. "Did I not tell you?" she said, softly, laying her hand lightly on bis arm. He stopted as if some one had struck him, shaking off her arm with a slight shiver. .'Pardon my. rudeness," he said in stantly. "I am hardly myself to-night. I believe I am nervous." And he tried to smile, but it was a pitiful abortion. Miss Livingston saw it. and her white teeth set themselves savagely together, and a dark look flitted across' her face. -"I will know to-night,'i she said, mentally,- "even if I humble my pride in the dust. If he still prefers that little un sophisticated fool, with her pink and white baby-face, then there is but one alternative. And, after all, it is perhaps the safest .way, for I have him, aud al ways did. and I will not .be conqaered and outwitted by him. I know he will not hesitate to use, for his own interest, what I verily believed Satan helped him to get. And to think I was such a fool as to trust him, and leave that where he could' get at it! Well, to-hight yes, this very ' hour, must decide my fate and his !? CHAPTER XI. iiijMK three or four miles out from St. John, on the Xerepis road, stood a de serted house, with a ghostly reputation. Now, notwithstanding ' the' exceeding popularity. of ghosts, and the intense in terest that attaches to their history, I am going to assert my utter an I entire dis belief in the whole fraternity, including the whole round of signs, and warnings, and mysterious lights, etc., that make up such a delightful novelty in this pro saic world. But this house was certain ly a fixed fact. I saw it with my own eyes one lovely May morning, aud'l will admit this much, that it perfectly an swered my ideal of what a real, buna fide, haunted honse thould be. . It was a square, three-story wooden house, with an unusual number of windows in it, every individual pane, of which was eracked or broken. And this was the mystery. Once, twice, thrice the house had been repaired, and the windows newly-set, and each time, before the ris ing of another sun, every single pane was broken, from basement to attic. No sound of hammer of shivered glass was ever heard, but silently and surely the work was done. There was no trace of footsteps about the yard, and the doors and windows remained closely bolted. A certain awe attached to the place, and lor a long time tne House Had been un tenanted. . There was a forsaken look about the place that made me shudder, even in the bright sunshine, and, not- witustanding my scepticism, l woman t have eared to take' lodgings in it. It was nearly midnight of the evening in which our last chapter closed, when a covered carriage drove cautiously into tiie desolote yard, aud a tall, heavy limbed man alighted therefrom , bearing n his arms an unconscious burden, lie thrust his hand through the side-light, and slipping the bolt, the door swung open with a dull creak. He entered quickly, ascended the long stairs, one pair after another, until he reached the third story. There lie deposited his burden on a pile of straw in corner of the room, and, takiug a dark lantern from his pocket, turned its rays full on the temple from which the blood had trickled down to the heavy black beard, and bne arm hung limp and powerless at bis side. But the man's breathing was regular and heavy too.heavv to be altogether natural. He took an old blanket lrom a cnair anu tnrew it over the man then' he went to a little, closet and took out i pitcher of water, a loaf of bread and some meat. These he placed in a chair, aud drew them up beside the sleeping man. Then he cast a quick glance around the room, and a look of satisfaction" lighted' lip the deep-set grey eyes. As he turned the light about the apartment, ' it revealed the fact that there was not a single window in it. li was a curious, octagon-snaped room, nearly in the centre of the building, and had doubtless been originally used as a store-room, as an aperffre above, now boarded over, , showed there had once been a scuttle window there, which sub served the double purpose of sunning and airing the room. . The man was ev idently satisneu witn its scrutiny, anu alter taking one more look at his sleep ing prisoner, passed out of the room aud locked the door, and then slipped a heavy bar of iron across it. - - ;. -y It was a grave, troubled face, that the morning following, poredabsentlyover tne .law volumes in jftr. vanstone's office. . Arthur St. Orme was by no means a yuin mail, but he was not hardlv obtuse enough to misunderstand the nature of Miss Livingston's senti ments toward himself, the interview of the evening previous had been ex tremely embarrassing to him; first, from the circumstance that the ladyliad lost a large sum of money, and papers, which she said, with ill-concealed agitation, were of much' greater value to her than money, during her absence iivtown that afternoon. The bouse had been entered, and the money extracted from her pri vate writing-desk in her own room. Ol course she would not wish to implicate the Wallaces, but it was a little strange that no one but Annie knew of the secret spring that opened It. She had once I shown it to her as a matter of curiosity, the box having been brought with her from England. lie could not forget the strange glitter in her eyes when he warmly resented the imputation cast upon Annie. Neither could he forget how she had gone, eveu further, and boldly declared that John Randolph was on the point of leaving for the States, and very plainly intima ted that Annie was to be his companion. He had no heart to combat her state ments, for he had not seen her a few moments before, drive away with him? He had covered his face witli his hands and sank Into a chair. And now came the most humiliating part of it. - He coujd not forget the w hite, jeweled, fin gers that had fluttered carelessly over his hair or the glowing, passionate face, with the soft fire In the languid eyes, iuto which lie had looked, yet with eyes that saw not, because of his great pain. But he could not help feel ing her warm breath on his cheek as with lips close to his ear she whispered softly : -, 'Jorget her, Arthur; she is not the only woman in the world." "But Ae Jovcd me!" he had answered, sadly. ;t . f. , x 'But does she note," was fJie passions ate reply..: ;"Ohi Arthur! do. you not know can you not see tbat-my Godl Arthur St. Orme, are you utterly blind! must I? " ' ..-: -But now a sudden perception of the truth dawned upon him, and he hastily interrupted her with : - - "Yes, Miss Livingston, I am blind to the attractions of every other woman in the world, while Annie Wallace lives! I have loved her with my whole heart and soul for more thau fifteen years. There is no other woman in the world for me!" And seizing bis hat, he rushed down the steps, and somehow, lie hardly knew himself, reached home. There was but one thing that he re membered distinctly. As he came down the steps of Lindenwold, he ran full against a tall, heavy-limbed man, who, with a muttered malediction, slouched stealthily away. He copied some law business in the course of the day, in a sort of mechan ical way. There were only two things that roused him out of the mental par alysis that hung like an incubus upou him. Once he saw Miss Livingston drive by with Paul Russei. The lady looked up, and smiled and bowed gra ciously, but he was vaguely conscious of a peculiar glitter in tier eyes that be never saw there before. - The ocher thing, and which moved him tar more, was "seeing Annie Wallace and John Randolph -walking in the direction of North Wharf. "Could it be possible," he wondered, "that Annie was going with Randolph ?" aud then he despised himself for the thought. It was doubt less a mere accident her meeting- with Randolph; aud he resolved to watch closely, aud when she returned, to go out aud join her, even if Randolph was with her. But though he watched all day, refusing to go down to his dinner, for fear he might lose her, and then, hoping against nope, did the same thing at supper time, yet she never came. ; : In the early evening Mr. Vanstone came home. from a threedays' absence at Fredrictou, whither he had been on some important business. - A gentleman from England, a distant cousin of Mr. VaustoueU accompanied him. The gen tleman's name was Wayne, and after (he greetings were over, in reply -to a question of Mr. Vanstone's as to how he had ever thought be could leave Eng. laud, be said: - . "Well, perhaps I had better confess. I came on rather a visionary errand. -1 once had a very dear little cousin, whom 1 loved, I am afraid better thau a cou sin. But she only saw 'Cousin Paul' in me, and foolishly enough fell iu love with, and married, a younger son of a high and wealthier family. He was a shiftless fellow,and deserted her and her three year eld boy, for the unholy wiles and blandishments of an accursed ac tress. She struggled on the best way she could for a year or two, and then sailed lor some American port. I was absent on the continent at the time, and for several years alter. The husband has since died, but not till after he had married the actress, by whom he , had two children. I know you will say it Is a very foolish and romantic thing for a man of my . years, but I doubt if ro mance ever quite dies out of the heart of ever so practical a man, aud I was al ways a little visionary ; and so, to cap the climax, I have set out on this quix otic expedition in search of my little Mary.. I have already been' in New York and Boston, and spent weeks in ex amining hotel registers and passenger lists as far as they had been preserved of twenty-five years ago. Two weeks before I came down to Halifax, and run ning by chance across your husband, we discovered a mutual surprise, etc., that we were by marriage fourth cousins !" "I am just as glad to see you as though I Ujxd always known I bad such a cou sin, which, I am sorry to say, I did not." There was a loud and hurried rap at the door, and almost immediately the voice of William Wallace, asking exci tedly, for ArtbufSt. Orme. A sudden presentiment that something had happened to Annie came over Arthur, starting him from the half-conscious reverie in which he had listened to the story of Mr. Wayne. He reached the door with two hasty strides,. and met the pained terrified face Of Mr. Wallace. "Annie?" he gasped. ' "Oh my God ! then you haven't seen ner!" he said, in a tone of uttter des pair. "I saw her this morning," Arthur fal tered, with a sinking heart. "Where did you see her? speak quick!" - "I saw her pass this house with John Randolph, and though I watched till dark, she did not go back." "Yes, yes, I know that. : Randolph has gone to the States, went iu the 'Ad miral' this morning. Annie came into town between seven and eight this morn ing. Miss Livingston came over very early and wanted her to come in for some special errands for her some sort of fancy stun, that she daren't trust Asa to get; aud she had a terrible headache, she said, aud indeed she did look wretch edly." - " - ' 'But I saw Miss Livingston iu town this al'teruoou." "Yes, I know.' Annie had only three places to go to, they were written down uu a paper so she would make no mis take. We expected her back by teu ; we waited till one, aud then Miss Livings ton rode iu herself, and I could not wait, and so came tod. We have searched for her all the afternoon, but cannot find the least trace of her. save one shop on D uke street where the clerk says she came about eignt o'clock and purchased some worsteds. MissLiviugsiou is feeling dreadfully about it, aud blaming nerseit tor sending ber. she suggested that possibly you might ' know something about her," he said, despairingly. ' Arthur reproached himself bitterly for the coldness be had allowed to spring up between them, aud thought, with a sud den fear, that perhaps it had troubled her as much as it had him, and maybe she had poor child! he dare not finish the sentence, but he shuddered as he re membered the dark, deep waters that skirted the wharves. ' "Yon must go home with me,Arthnr," Mr. Wallace said, "I dare not face her mother coward that I am! unless-1 car ry back her child." ""Certainly, father, I shall go with you; and who knows but we find our darling safe at home?" But they did not. Andv one, and two, and three days slipped away, aud still no tidings ca'me of the missing girl. Miss Livingston was untiring iu ner efforts to discover her, although it was evident that she believed she had gone away with Randolph; and, after a lew days, it grew to be the generally re ceived opinion, that what was ac first re garded as an abduction, was simply an elopement. How much of this belief took Its coloring from Miss Livingston's opinion, I cannot say, but there were throe persons who never believed it; perhaps their anguish would have been more bearable if they had. Her father and mother and Arthur, mourned for her as dead, or perhaps worse than dead. One tiling seemed o little strange to Ar thur. Miss Livingston made no further mention of the loss of her money and papers, aud set about speedy measures for the disposal of her property, prepar atory to ner return to England.

It is that the newspaper, the .Pre, is stopped my Press is stopped. Sensa tion. I did not expect, in coming here, to be compelled to make this sorrowful announcement, but it is nevertheless the fact. '- The' Press is stopped ;", not the es tablishment, but the single copy :w Inch the President of the United States takes it is stopped.

'"When this administration policy was first announced, I said,, in the Press, tuat the effect would be to disgrace the party, unless the party should repudiate it; and, in the next place, to defeat hun dreds of men who would be put upon Democratic tickets, not having had any thing to do with the betrayal. Such has been the result. Many aud many a glo rious Democrat, placed upou the Demo cratic tichet, lias been sent to obscurity because the opposition party has riseu against the mistakes of the. Federal ad ministratiod, and because, the Demo cratic party, through the conventions of its officeholders, has been committed, to these mistakes and pledged to support them as a portion of the party duty. , - ""Win . bflvA Rn tmur t.hisi .npf.Lfr rtrn- scription has extended Itself 'to citizens ol your .owa vicinity. 1 need not men tion names ; they are all familiar to you.

Miss Price's brother had prepared , a , liniment, composed In part of vinegar, for a horse that had received an injury on his leg. lu a day or two he thought necessary to make a second application, and the tin cup containing the liniment was set on the cook-stove to Warm.
