At tills moment Mr. WbiUlfotafJ came down into tho road. "Oh, Mr. Gordon! good-morning, n!r. You find us In rather n disturbed condition this nioniiii. I am sorry I did not think of asking you to como to breakfast. Hut, perhaps, under nil tho circuin Rtnir'c.x, it wan bettor not. That dread , fill ni:m lind put us nadly about. Uo is tho unfortunate lnnbar.il of my hardly lets riifo. tiiiuito lioii.7eko"p:'r." "Yej, sir, hn U my husband, that's true," isaid Mri Hngijett. "I'm very miieh atiached to my wife, if you knew all about it, sir; and I vants her to cup homo with nio.' Ki rvito uiu't no iiilieritiiiiec; nor y!t ain't wages, when they never amounts to more tlinn twenty pounds a year. "It's thirty, you false, ungrateful beast!" said Mrs. Iliiggett. Hut Mr. Whittle-tall hud led tho way into the parden, and John Gordon had followed him. licfore they reached the hull door, Mary J.awiio had met them. "Oh, Mr. Whittlosta'.l !" she said, "Is it not annoying? that dreadful man with tho wooden leg is hero,- and col lecting a crowd round the place Good morning, Mr. Gordon, it is tho poor woman s ne'er-do-well husband. She it hersolt so decent and rcspcctablo that gho will be greatly harrassed. What can we do, Mr. Whittlestaff! Can't we get a policeman?" In this way tho conv venation was led away to the affairs ol Sergeant and Mrs. Itagctt, to tho in effable distress of John Gordon. When n-e remember tho kind of speeelioj 'which Gordon Intended to uttor it must be admitted that the interruption was provoking. Even if Mary would leave tliora together, it would on difficult to fall back upon the subject which Gor don had at licart. Hut John Gordon could not postpone his moment. lie could not go oli resid ing Indefinitely nt the Claimant's Arm! till ho could (mil a lor assuring Mr. proper opportunity Wlilltlistair that it could not be his duty to marry Mary J.awrie. Uo must rush at his xubjoet, let tho result bo what it might. He had no hopes as to a lavorablu result. ,Wa it natural that a man should give tip his Intended wife, simply because he was asked? Gordon's presont fnoHnjj vm an anxious desire to be on 1 oard Iho ship Hint should take him again to the diamond-fields, so that he might bo At peace, knowing then, as he would know, that he had left Mary Lawrie be hind forever. At this moment ho al most repented that ho had not left Arlcsford without any further attempt. 'Hut there he was on Mr. WbittletufTs rround, aud the attempt must be made, . if only with the objeot of justifying his coming. "Miss Lawrie," he began, "if you would not mind leaving me and Mr. 'Whlttlostafr alone together for a few t minutes, I will be obliged to you." This ho said with solemnity, so that Mr. iW'hittlestaff drew himself up, and looked lard and stiff, as though he were do (aenrulncd to forget Sergeant Daggett , mnd all bis peccadilloes for the moment "Oh, yes; certainly; but" Mr. , fWhlUlotUff looked sternly at hor, as . iiQuugu uo oiu ur fro a unoe. - xou i ) must believe nothing as coining from jne unless it comes from out of my own mouth." Then she pnt her hand upon his arm, as though half embracing him. "You bad better leave us, perhaps," eaid Mr. ..Whittlestafr. And then she iwent " ' Now the moment bad oome, and ijobn Gordon felt the difficulty. It had jnot been lessened by the assurance giv a by Miss Mary herself that nothing was to be taken as having como frtm Lor unless It was known and heard te have so come. And yet he was thor oughly oonvineed that he was altogeth er loved by her, and that had heap pearod on the scene but a day sooner, she would bave accepted him with all her heart. "Mr.Whltttestaff, " be said, "I want to toll you what passed yester day between me and Bliss Lawrie." "Is It necessary?" be asked. "I think It Is." ' ' . " As far as I am concerned, I doubt the necessity. - Miss Lawrie has said a word to me; as much I presume, as sho feels to be necessary." ' IdfljB.Qt think bet. feoljngjatha (natter should be a guide (or you or ion hie. What wqbivo both of ttstodola1 to think what may be best for. her, and, bo effect that as tor as may be wtthtaj bur power." 1 "Certatuty." said Mr Wblttiestafti "But probuibrV you and I dlffot toato-, Hafly as to thinking what may be best1 (or her. As far as I understand the batter, you wish that she should be, your wife. I wish that She should be mine. I think that as my wife she would live a happier life than she could go as yours; and as she thinks also ", Here Sir. Whittlestaff paused. 'But does she think so?" "You heard what she said ,'ust now.M "I heard nothing as to her thoughts of living," said John Gordon. "Nor in the interview which I had with her yesterday .did I hear a word fall from Ler as to herself. We have got to form our ideas as to that from circumstances which shall certainly not appear by her own speech. When you speak against t have not said a word against you, sir." "Perhaps you Imply," said Gordon, not stopping to notice Mr. Whittle staff's acgry tone, "perhaps you imply that my life may be that of a rover, and, as such would not conduce to Miss Lawrie's happiness." "I have implied nothing." "To suit her wishes I would remain altogether in England. 1 was very lucky, and am not a man greedy of great wealth. Sue can remain here, and 1 will satisfy you that there shall be enough for our joint maintenance. " "What do I care for your mainte nance, or what does shoP Do you know, sir, that you are talking to me about a lady whom I intend to make my wife, who is enjaeod to marrv meP Good- noss gracious mo "I own. sir. that it Is singular.". "Very singular, Indocd. f never heard of such a thing. It seems you know her at Norwich." "I did know her well." "And then you wont away aud dosert ed her." " I went awav, Mr. Whittlestaff, bo- causo I was poor. I was told by her j step-mother that I was not wanted about the house, because I had no means, j That was true, and as I loved hor dear- j ly, I started at once, almost in despair, i but with a shade of hope that I midit ! put myself in tho way of enabling her ; to become my wife. I did not desert , her." ! "Very well. Then you camo buck ; and found her eugaged to bo my wife. , You had itfrom her own mouth. When a geutluuiau hears that, what has ho to do but to go awayP" "There are circumstances hero." ; "What does .she say herself? Thero nro no ciicuiiistaiiccs to justify you. If vou would come hero as a friend I' of-, fered to receive you. As you had been known to her 1 did not turn my back , upon you. Hut nowyonr conduct is so j peculiar that I can not ask you to re- ! main anv longer." They were walk- . ing up aud down the l'jng walk, and now Mr. Whittlestaff stood still, as though to declare that tho interview should bo considered as over. ' "I know that you wish me to go away," said Gordon. "Well, yes; unless you withdraw all Idea of a claim to the young lady's hand." - ... "Hut I think you should first bear what I bave to nay. You will not sure ly bave done your duty by her unless you hear me." "You can speak if you wish to." "It was not till yesterday that you made your proposition to Misg Lawrie." "What has that to do with itP" "Had I come on tho previous day, and had I been able then to tell her all that i can tell her now, would it have mado no difference?" "Did she say soP" asked the fortu nate lover, in a very angry tone. "No; she did not. say so. It was with difficulty that I forced from her an avowal that her engagement was so ro ccnt Hut sho did confess that it was so. And she confessed in her manner that she found it impossible to refuse you the request that you had asked." "I never heard a nnft assert so Im pudently that ho was tho sole owner of a lady s lavors. upon my woru, i think you are the vainest man I cvor met." "Let it be so. I do not care to de fend myself, but only her. Whether I am vain or not, is it not true Hint which I sayP I put it to you, as man to man, vhother you do not know that it is ffuo? If you marry this girl, will you not marry ono whoso heart belongs to me? Will you not marry ono of whom you knew two days since that her heart was mine? Will' you not marry one who, if she was free this moment, would give herself to mo without a pang of remorse?" "I never heard anything like the man's vanityl" "Hut Is It true? Whatever may be my vanity, or self-seeking, or unmanll ness if you will is not what 1 say God's truth P It is not about m weaknesses, or your weaknesses, that we should speak, but about her happiness." "Just so; I don't think she would be happy with you." Then it Is to save ber from me that yen are marrying her so that she may not sink into tbe abyss of my un worthi ness." "Partly that" "But if I bad come two days since, when she would have received me with open arms" " You have no right to make such a statement" "I ask you whother it Is not true? She wuld have received me with open arms, and would you then have dared, as her guardian, to bid her refgse tho offer made to hor, when you had learned, as you would have done, that she loved mo; that I had loved hor with all my heart before I left England; that I had loft it with the view of enabling myself to marry her; that I had been wonder fully successful; that I had come back with no other hope In the world than that of giving It all to her; that I had been able to show you my whole life, so that no girl noed be afraid to become my wlfo-" What do I know about your life? Sou may have another wife living at its memeat" , "Nodeubtr, I may be guilty of any amount of villainy, but then, as her Driend, yon should make Inquiry. You weuld not break a girl's heart because Uuvnom.to whom jhe, is attached, may . ... i ., . . '.J..- i: i ''. possibly be a rogue. In this case you have no ground for the suspicion. ; "I never heard of a man who spoke of himself so grandlloaueutlyr" "There fa ample reason why you you should make iuuairy. In truth, as I said beforo, it is bcr happiness and not mine nor your own, that you should look to. If she has taken your oiler be cause you had been good to ber in her desolation because she had found her self unable to refuse aught to one who had treated ber so well; If she bad done all this, believing that I had disap peared from hor knowledge, and doubt ing altogether my return; if it be so and you know that it is so then you should hesitate before you lead her to hor doom." "You heard her say that I was not to believe any of these things unless I got them from her own month." "I did; and her word should go for nothing either with you or with me. ,She has promised, ana is willing to sac rifice herself to her promise. She will sacrifice me, too, because of your good nessand because she is utterly unable to put a fair value upon herself. To me she Is all the world. From the first hiur in which I saw her to the present, the idea of gaining her has been ev ery thing. Put aside tho words which she just spoke, what is your belief -of the etate of her wishes." "I can toll you my belief of the state of her welfare." "Thore your own prejudice creeps in, and I might retaliate by charging yon with vanity as you have done me, onlt that I think such vanity very natural. Hut it is her you should consult on suet a matter. She is not vo be treated llki a child. Of whom does she wish to bet como tho wifeP I boldly say that 1 have won her love, and that if "it be so you should desire to take hor to youri sell. I ou nave not answereu me, noi can I expect you to answer mo; bul look Into yourself and answer it thero, Think how it will be with you, whed the girl who lies upon your shouldel shall be thinking over of somo othel man from whom you have robbed her. Good-bye, Mr. hif.lestaff. 1 do not doubt but that you will turn it- all ovel in your thoughts." Then ho escaped by a wicket-pate Into tho road at Iht far end of the long walk. ClIAPTEll XI. MKS. UAOOETT THUSTS ONI.V I! TUB rUNPS. Mr. Whiltlestair, when bo was left alone, was disturbed by many troublo somo thoughts. The kiiowlcdgo that his housekeeper was out on tho road, and that her drunken, clisrcoutablu husband was playing Iho f.jol for tlm bcnclil of nil "tho idlers that had RHuntovod out from Ariesford to see him, added to bis grief. Why should not the sti p'.d womau remain indoors, .and allow linn, her master, to send for tho police? Sho had declared that she would go with her husband, airtl ho could not violently prevent her. This was not much when adled to tho weight of his caw as to Mary Lawrie, but it seemed to be the last ounce des tined to break the horse's back, as is the proverbial fate of all last ounces. Just as bo was about to colloct his thoughts, so as to resolve what to do in. regard to Mary, Mrs. Baggett ap peared before him with her bonnet on her head. " What are you going to do,' you stupid woman?" "I am a-going with be," she said, in the midst oia torrent of sobs and tears. "It'sadooty. They says if you docs your dooty all will como right in the end. It may be, but I don't see it no further than' taking him back to Ports mouth." " What on earth are you going to Portsmouth for nowt And whyP why now? He's not more drunk than he has been before, nor yet less abom inable. Let tho police lock him up for the night, and send him back to Ports mouth in tho morning. Whv should you want to go with him now?1' "Hocause vou're going to take a missus," said" Mrs. Baggett, still sob bing. "It's more than I know, or you know; or any one knows," and Mr. Whittle staff sioke as though ho had nearly reduced himself to his housekeeper's position. "Not marry her!" sho exclaimed. "I can not say. If you will let me alone to manage my own affairs, it will be host" "That man has been here Interfering. You don't moan to say that you're go ing to be put upon by such a savage as that, as has just come homo from South Africa. Diamonds, liuleea! 1 a dia mond him! 1 don't believe, not in a single diamond. They're all rubbish and paste. If you'ro going to give hor up to that fellow you're not the gentle man 1 take yon tot. "But If I don't mnrry you won't have to go," he said, unable to refrain from so self-evident an argument. "Me going! What's me going? What's me or that drunken old repro bate out there to the likes of you? I'd stay, only if It was to see that Mr. John Gordon isn't let to put bis foot here in tins bouse; and then I'd go. John Gor don, indeed! To oome np between you and her, when you had settled your mind and she had settled hem! If she favors John Gordon I'll tear her best frock off ber back." "How dare you speak in that way of the lady who Is to be your mistress?" "Sho ain't to be my mistress. I won't bave no mistress. 1 When her tlmo is oome 1 shall be In tbe noor-bouse at Portsmouth, because I shan't be able to earn a penny to buy gin for him." As she said this Mrs. baggett sobbed bitterly. "You're enough to drive a man mad. I don't know what It Is you want, oi you don't want." "I wishes to see Miss Lawrie do hei dooty, and become your wife, as a lady should do. You wishes it, and she ought to wish it too. Drat herl If she is go ing back from her word" "She is not going back from ber word. Nothing Is more excellent, noth ing more true, nothing more trust worthy than Miss Lawrie, You should not allow yourself to speak of her In such language." - . . "It is yon, then, as Is going hckP" "I do not know. To toll the truth, Mrs. Baggott, I do not know.'.' "Then let me tell yon, sir. I'm an old Woman whom you've known all your life pretty nigh, and you can trust mo. Don't give Up to none of 'em. You've got her word, and keep her to tWyeeo01ito.ur Imejeoj; lags If you're be break rourteatt. Toaj Wau. well by ber, and win make hor Lappy. Can you say asuHjeh for him? When them diamonds is goue, what's to oome next? I ain't no trust in dia monds, not to 11 vo out of, but only in the funds, which 1s reg-lar. I wouldn't )et her see John Gordon again never, till she was Mrs. Whittlestaff. After that she'll never go astray, nor yet won't ber thoughts." "God bless you! Mrs. Baggott," he laid, "She's one of them when she's your own she'll remain your own all out. Sho' ll stand the washing. I'm an old woman, aud 1 knows 'em." "And yet you can not live with such a lady as her?" "No! If she was one of them namby-i painbys as'd lot an old woman keep her old place, it might do." "bhe shall Ivvo you always for what ion said just now." "Love mo! I don't doubt her loving me. She'll love me because she is lov ingnot that I am lovable. Sbe'U want to do a' most everything about the bouse, and I shall want the same; and hor wants are to stand appermost that is, if she is to be Mrs. Whittlestaff." "1 do not know: I have to tbink about it" "Don't think about it no more; but just go in and do it Don't have no more words with him nor yet with her nor yet with yourself. Let it come on just as thouirh it were fixed by fate. It's in your own hands now, air, and don't you be thinking of being toe good- naturca; mere am t no goou comes from it. A man may maunder away bis mind In softnesses till he ain't worth nothing, and don't do no good to no ono. Vou can givo hor brcaa to eat, and clothes to wear, and ean make her rospectalilo before all men and women. What has he to say? Only that lie is twenty years younger than you. Love) Hot it! I suppose you'll come in just now, sir, and soe my boxes when they're ready to start" So saying, she turned round sharply and left him. in spite of the excellent advice which Mr. Whiitlcstaff had received from his housekeeper, bidding bim not have any more words, even with himself, on the mutter, he could but think of all the arguments which John Gordon bad used to him. Accoriliug to Mrs. Bag gett, ho ought to cobteut himself with kuu)ving that he could find food and raiment and shelter for his Intended wifo, ami in feeling that ho had her promi e and ber a-suraiico that that promiM) saould bo respected. There was to bim a link in all tills, upon which he could build with absolute iiifely. And hit did not believe that, were he o I aet, sho would turn round upon bim with fuluro years or neglect licr diii, becm ,u bite u.i-. ever t!.i..l.mg of John Gordon, llo know that sho would bo too stoadfa-t for nil that aud that even though there might bo some iorrow at her heart it would bo well kept down, out of his eight, out of tho light of the world al large, and would trad u ally sink out of herovvn sight too. but if it be given to a man "to maunder awav his mind in softnesses," ho can not Hve otherwiso than as nature lias made him. Mrs, Baggett had uuder- itood tho nature of his character, but bad not understood that as was his lharacter, so must he act He could lot alter his own self. ' to be continued. Dr. Jlfldcliffc, an Old-Time Physician. In his day medicine as a soionoe had bardly begun to be. He himself is re xrdod to nave cured a quinsy by set ling his two servants to pelt each other lib hasty pudding at the very bed of death, by wbiuh means the patient was) made to laugh, aud the quinsy to break; while Bldloo, the Dutch physician at tached to the service of William IU., could think of nothing better for the boils with which his master was afflict ed than to bave his legs rubbed night sod morning with a mixture of crabs' eyes, Hour and cunimln-secd. Kadcliffe, however, had a great deal of good sense, and was an adiuirablo talker, a due judge of character, and an accom plished man of the world; he apears, too. to have been a born physician, and to have had a really reuiarkaole gift of prognosis; so that, though ho wrote little or nothing, and probably knew no more than many others of his genera tion, he enjoyed extraordinary popu larity and achieved a professional sue-ce-s which has hardly been surpassed by tbe most eminent practitioners ot our own time. He lived gallantly and luxuriously, but the amount of money be mado was incredibly largo. His apothecary died worth 00, UX). Dr. Gibbons, who lived hard by. made ovor a thousand a year from tbo overflow oi his practice. He charged five guineas for a journey from Bloorusbury to Bow; his average receipts were twenty guineas a day, or more than 7.0UO a year; he refused a baronetcy, and for a week In the camp at Namur he re ceived a fee of 400 guineas for hit patient, Albemarle, and a gratincatiea of 1.2(H) more from Albemarle's mas ter. It Is not astonishing that seven years before be died he estimated his fortune. In money and land, at over 80,000. His use of tbls was nobie Is the extreme. Ho beqnoathed bit York shire estate to University Collego for the foundation of two traveling fellow thipt and the purchase of perpetual ad TowsoM.togcther with a further turn ol 5.000 for the enlargement ot the college buildings, lfe left 40,00 more for the budding of what has fui over a century been known to the werle aa tha KadclHle LibrarV.

All the rest of his estate he gavi to his executors In trust for cbaritaMs purposes; and In this way be becami responsible among countless benefac tions of greater or less Importance foi the Oxford Observatory and Inlirmary.
