MY CLAIR stoocT folding up the last pair of pants, that completeJ the first bundle of work she naa uone since Alice had died. The poor have little time for crvtaf nnil Amv's lierroless finders had been compelled to take up the burden of toil, and stitch lier tears, and signs into the senseless garments. But to-night she had completed her work, and1 after taking it home, was going out to Alice:g grave. Timray Bryne had brought her some chovsanthemums, and tiie quick tears came into her eyes as she remem bered how she had loved them. It was rather late before she started ; the days were short, too, but to-morrow would brliis Its work, and to-night was all the leisure time she had. However, there was a young moon, and it was but a tri lie over a mile out, on the Nerepis road After leaving her bundle at Breen & Son's, she hurried out of the city. She almost wished she had asked Tim my to come with her; but she had somehow felt as if, this first time, she had rather be alone. It was quite dark when she arose from her knee?, where, for awhile, she had been unconscious of everything save her own loneliness, and the dear sense- less dUBt bcneatli the fresh mold. Her eyes were blinded with tears, and un consciously she took quite another path from the one she had entered by. It came out a little higher up the road, and led bv an old, unused tomb, nuclei- the shadow of two gloomy hemlocks. - She felt a trifle nervous as she approached.it and was hurrying by with -quickened steps, wnen a taint groan, issuing 01 rectlv from the tomb, sent the blood in lev waves to her heart. She tried to run, but her strength utterly forsook ' lier, and she could ouly gaze in a sort of & xed horror on the door of the tomb. The first sight that met her eyes did not at all serve to reassure her. A face, ghostly In it3 pallor, with a white cloth bound about the temples, upon which, by the light of the moon, she could dis tinctly see stains of blood. Oh, if she 1 could only fly, oivctv out ! "Do not be alarmed, lady," said a faint, pained voice. "I am not a ghost, however much I may look like one, or however circumstances may warrant the belief. I am hi great pain though. and do not know . how soon I may be a ithost. if I do not ccet relief." Amy's fear vanished on the instant. If any one was in pain or trouble it was recommendation enough to her; and so she raine qnietly and fearlessly up to the door of the tomb, and looked with pitying eyes into the dark, pallid face, with the heavy black beard matted with blood. Then she touched the limp, nerveless arm. ,'You are wounded, and your arm is broken, I think: how did it happen?" "It U a long story, and I 1 believe I am faint." And in his effort to steady himself, lie dislodged a loose stone, and fell Drone at her feet. She raised his head to her lap, and tried to fan him with her hood which she had caught off. lie opened his eyes with a faint groan. 'I think my ankle U broken too," he whispered. 'Then you can't walk." she said des pairingly. "What am I to do with you? 1 never can go away and leave you here, tor you would be sure to die, and I can think of no way to get you to the city." "You arc a tender-hearted little thing," he .said, softly. "Are you afraid to sit here while I tell you my story?" "Afraid? No. But if I could get you where you would be more comfort able first. You are in too much pain to talk." "What, are you willing to serve me, without knowing anything about me?" "I know you are buttering, that is cnouirh. If vou can lay back here, and try to be patient, I will go to the city as quick as I can, and I have a friend who 1 think will come out here, aud take you 4 .23 wherever you say. PQRTHEEN A VOL. II.

It was a well pliinned ruse to deceive me, and in that way effectually, as she supposed, : rid herself of me. But fate, or I think how Providence, ordained that her schemes liould be lrustratcd: tor I. by another st ran re chance, discovered that neither of us was the true heir, but that the true heir still lived, though in utter ig norance of the lact.

But every where else the most lavish luxuriance reigned. It an gered me to think of the scanty pittance she had ctoiea out oi me, wuiie sne ri oted in abundance. I do not seek to jus. tifv myself, but I said, then, I was only taking" mv own, when I took a fifty pound note from a little private box of hers, which I remembered at first Sight, for it used to be our mother's. I also took eome papers,, and- among them an old letter bearing the superscription of Sir Frederic Livingston. That night my steps were dog-ged, and- in a litsrie alley leading off from Water street, I was sprung upon by a large, powerful man, and dealt a blow on- the temple, which must have rendered m senseless, FAMILY PAPER, PAIKESVIIXE, LAKE COtJXTY, OHIO, SATURDAY, 'NO YEM33ER 9, 1872. aitrMyWbm powerful drug which I think must have been admlnls- tered to me In my unconsciousness; for when I reoerered, a round myseir In a dark, close room, near the roof of a building.

"1 will take care of you, and love you, if you will let me." 'I do not want your care ; 1 will not have vour love.- I hate you I always did. and always shall !" And stepping into her carriage with the air of an empress, she was driven swiftly to Linden wold, from whence, taking only her clothing and jewels, she went out that mgnt torever, and silence and tender lorgetfulness of her' errors closed over her memory ; and only once, in all the happy years that have lallen between, have they ever heard ought of her. Mr. Vanstone, being-tn'New Or leans on business, was induced by a friend, to visit the theatre to see -the new tragedienne that was setting the city wild with admiration at her marvellous acting. What was his surprise to behold in this beautitul queen ot tragedy, this royally-superb woman, his old client. the Lady of Linden wold. -Under the new regime, liudenwold has regained all its old prestige, -aud more than Its olden glory; especially in the proud and partial eyes of happy Mary Wallace. Arthur would not listen for a. moment to Paul's refusal to share the Linden wold estate; and after he had installed his pretty Annie as chief lady (which was, by the way, his first official act after coming into posession), he could not rest content until Paul was as happy as himself. You all know how kind hearted and forgiving Amy Clair was, and so will hot be surprised to learn that she forgave Paul his brief infatua tion, when with all the impassioned elo quence that peculiarly distinguished the rector ot St. James, he pleaded for her pure love to guide, inspire and bless all his future life. And so Lindenwold got another mistress. Geoffry calls the old place home ; but certain parish I know of proudiv claims him as their beloved and idolized pastor. He is very-'gentle and tender with the erring, and, it is said, esiecialiy successful. "With his strong and ear nest and abounding love for God and his fellow-men, he could not well be otherwise. Truly, he loveth most to whom most is forgiven. one day, m loiding up an old coat, Gerffry came across an old letter w-hich had slipped beween the outside and lin ing. To his surprise, he found it to be the letter he had taken from Olive's desk. It proved to have been written by Charles St. Orme, or, properly, Clar ence Livingston. to his brotherSirFreder ic, informing him of his illness, and com mending his wile ahd little Arthur to his care. It had probably slipped acci dentally beneath the cover of the lounge, and so had never met the eye or bir Frederic. Its discovery explained much of the strange conduct of Olive, as well as the cause ot his imprisonment in the haunted house. But its mission for good or evil was ended now, for where such perfect peace and tender love reigned, evil and harm could never euter, and little more of blessing were possible on earth tha i descended and dwelt in Lin denwold. EUROPEAN CAPITALS. BY DR. R. SHELTON MACKENZIE. If St. Petersburg and Berlin are com paratively modern cities, the former not two centuries old, Vienna is not liable to be designated a parvenu. In the German language it is called Wien,(pro- nounced veen,) but it is also designated Kaiserstadt; or, the City of the Caesars, from the fact that it was the usual resi dence of the emperors of Germany,- and now of r rancis Joseph, Emperor ot Austria. A branch of the river Dan ube, so small as to serve the uses of ca nal, passes under the walls, between the city and tne suburb or Leopoidstaat. into this nows a miserable stream. foul and sluggish as that wretched and ill'Smelling bpree in ueriin. r rom tnis stream called the Wien, the capital of Austria takes its name.

Vienna is popularly- believed to occu py the site of Vindobona. a Roman sta tion, where the Emperor Marcus Aure- lius Antoninus, surnaraed the l'hiloso ooher. died. A. D. 180. - In the twelfth century Henry II, Duke of Upper and Lower Austria, established his residence in Vienna, -which he greatly enlarged and improved. Vienna was besieged by the Turks in lo'iO. and again in lbas but on the first occasion a severe winter caused the foe to retire, aud on the sec ond the city was relieved by the valor of John sobieski, muz ot roianii, and ot the Dukeof "XofTalne. One of the churches, still standing, was built in 1721 on the very spot where the Grand Vizier had 'pitchedliis teTit in 1683. Vi enna was occupied by Napoleon I in 1805, ahd again in-1809. The Prussians who might have entered it after their defeat of the Austriaus at Sadowa, in the summer of i860,- magnanimously de clined doing so. It is allowed by nil travelers that Vi enna is a magnificent city. It Is nearly seventeen miles m eircumrercnce, and consists of an old or inner citv, nearly a mile in length ahd over half a mile in breadth, surrounded on three sides by military glacis, with the canal or tne Danube on the fourth side. The eleva ted ring which surrounds it is covered with grass, laid out in walks, and in avenues planted with acacia and chest nut trees, and was the glacis ot the lor- tincations until they were abolished In 1857. The suburbs surround this oldest part of Vienna,and are of comparatively modern creation the original suburbs having been burnt by the Turks in 1G83, In the suburbs the streets are usually straight and broad. They all run to a point in the center or ino inner city.iiKe the spokes of a wheel. Surrounding the suburbs is a wall over twelve feet high pierced with thirteeu gates. This Wall forms what Is called the lines of Vienna Contrary to usual custom in almost all European countries, the older part of Vienna is the most fashionable. The palaces of tne emperor, of the imperial family, of the principal nobility ,and the mansious of the richest merchants and bankers, with the finest churches, th public offices, most of the museums, li braries, and public collections, the col leges, the exchange, and the most splen did shops, are all iu tho old or inner town, being uuuaved, are heavy and muddy in the winter, with the further disadvantage of beiug dusty in the sum mer. There are nianv nne squares, en riched with statues. There arc eight or 'ten theatres. The manufacture of silk st nil's and of shawls gives employment to manv thousands, and there are many glove factories, but the staple trade of the citr Is the makiug or luecrsciiaum pines: the material of which is t-hietly obtained iii Moravia, and Is a mineral of soft, earth v texture, composed of about 60 parts of silica, 26 of magnesia, and 13 or water, from lis title (me-, tne sea and cAauwi. scum or foam.)

The engineer who would restore in into a parky condition would deserve a colossal statue. - The Prater is the Hyde Park of Vien na, and consists ot a number of low -and partly Twooded' islands formed by that miserable branch of the 'Uanube already mentioned. From a circular center called Prater"Steiu, six avenues branch out.

Near the middle the skiff turned -over,- throwing both men Into the river and breaking loose from the ferry boat. " The men were drowiied aud the -skiff floated on over the falls. A strange and horrible crime was committed at'New Haven last Thursday evening. A lady living at Oyster Point, one of the remote -suburbs of the city, left her baby daughter, two years of age, on the floor for a moment, to go up stairs, 'and- during that' single moment the infant was snatched away by some unknown person, who: stole in at the frontdoor, and murdered it, the body being thrown into the well, where it was subsequently discovered. No clue fau yet been discovered to the perpetra tor, although a man was observed .hang ing about the premises some weeks be fore, to whom suspicion is attached. . One of the most distressing attairs we have ever been called upon to notice took place in Tallahassee-, Florida, a few days ago. Mrs. A. W. Pace, wife of a popular - and successful Jacksonville merchant, and daughter of Mr. George Damon, a prominent merchant in Tal lahassee, . seemed to be suffering from some mental derangement, and, think ing a change of scene and surroundings might Cure' her incipient malady,' her husband ' took her to her parents and friends in Tallahassee.'- That night soon after her arrival at her father's house, she called the family around her -and prayed and exhorted them to prepare for a great and sad calamity. None had any idea that" she was contemplating any thing like self-destruction.- The next moruing early, her father went out to produce a bottle of wine for her, and soon after his departure she took a kero sene lamp or can, and saturating her garments from head to foot, put a match' to it, and in a moment was enveloped in the-' flames. " Her- husband and others, hearing her shrieks, ran to her rescue, and -throwing a bucket of water over her;-endeavored toexdnguish the flames. This iproved 'unavailing" and her hus band, seizing a blanket, threw it around her, and finally succeeded in putting out the flames, but not until the poor victim was burned to such an extent that she died in a few hours,' after the' most intense-suffering. ' Mrs. 1 Pace was quite young, and had been married' three or tour years. Two years ago Biie was tne happy wife of a devoted husband, whose success In bnsiness had placed him in comfortable circumstances. ' At that time the Writer saw the happy pair '"at -their,. own "luxurious home in Jacksonville. Sunday night, about half-past seven 'clock, while the ferry -steamer Hope Was lying at the dock in Windsor, some of the crew observed two men, as they thought; "floating near the boat in a skiff. They ' were - not ' hailed,-- ana tne siau passed'out Of sight. 'The Hope remained at the dock seven or eight minntes after, and before starting out her1 captain hailed Several times to see if everything was ciean - :as tnei wheels made tneir first revolution he' heard a crash, and the engine was instantly stopped. At the same time a voice cried out, " Help! help! 1 am killed ! " Kunning art the captain threw a life-preserver to a 'man struggling iu the water, and then low ered his boat. The man caught the life- preserver, shouted once or twice for help, and . "was soon picked up.' ne was Insensible when drawn into the boat, and wheh lifted to thedocklt was found that he had been dead for three or four-1 minutes. "The body was removed to theH Town Hall, and a coroner's inquest Which was held acquitted the Hope of any negligence in the matter. "The skiff was broken to pieces, and tue orner mau if there was one, was -so " severely in jured that he went to" the bottom with out an ertort to save nimseir.- up to last evening the body had not been -identi fied, although seen by" hundreds ot per sons. The man -was RDOOTTorty years old, with sandy lieomplexIon,-reddisli hair and whiskers,-and dressed as it a laborer; He had a rubber hoot ou one foot and a shoe onthe other. It is be lieved that he lived and worked on the American side.. If so his fellow laborers must remember the fact of the boot and shoe, the boot beings worn fora sore foot. As to his injuries, the surgeon could find no serious wound except on the hand, which had been smashed by the wheel, though it is -believed mat tue vic tim received fatal internal injuries. He was in the' water long enough to drown, but had a firm hold on the life-preserver, aud his head was above the water wheu he -was picked -up. : On Sunday Ashtabula was thrown in to a state of excitement by the report Of a murder. A rench lamiiy by the name of Silvia lived on a new street below the Lake Shore Railway, - near the river. The family consisted oi Joseph Silvia, his wife, two sons and a daughter, step children of Joseph.' -The woman says that on -Thursday night. Joseph . went home after he had been drinking and had . a fight with three Swedes, who pounded him soundly. She says she and her two sons succeeded in getting him into the house, when they sent ; for a doctor. - Silvia was unable to talk. The next morning the doctor made a slight examination and left. Ou the following morning Silvia died. The neighbors were suspicious, knowing the family bore a baa reputation, and began to in vestigate the aflair. They discovered a small hole in his head a little below the right ear. An inquest was held, phys icians were summoned, . the head was examined, and the bullet was found. Mrs. Silvia was the first witness railed. She testified thus: -Her husband went home on Thursday , night about six o'clock and wanted his revolver; said lie had a light and wanted to " whip them some." The revolver laid in the clip board. She got it and put it In her dress pocket, and told him he must not- have it, or he would kill somebody; and sne went out doors, ne louowiug tier. She went to lump across a ditch una tell. He caught her, slapped her in the face and choked her, telling her he wanted the revolver, all the time laughing. She told him not to play so hard, she would give it to him. lie grasped it in his hand when the two sous came up, and one tried to take it away from him, and In the scuttle it went off, shooting him In the head. The revolver was produced minus tue cylinder; a sinim & Weston Next the daughter was called. She knew very little of the aflair, not beiug present at the time. One of the sous was then caned, lie said he had told several dinerent stories, out was now going to tell the truth. Ho said it was hard to swear against his mother, butit would come out in nine, and then there would be three to blame instead of one. and he could not keep it. The first part of the testimony was nearly the same us his mother s. lie then swore that upon his mother refusing to give the revolver to Silvia and upon his insisting unon having it sho cocked it, pointed it at his head and nred. Mivia tell and was car ried into the house. The other son's tes timony was to the same effect as that of his brother, the only difference being he thought his lather attempted to get up alter ne was snot, and also that his mot li er snapped the revolver onoe and it, did not lire, whereupou she cocked it agaiu and fired, his lather falling. .
