Address o atiusoa X lo., rorllaud, Ale. ftvl Story of Chapman Hall. BY FRANCES HENSHAW BADEN. " Stranger, can you tell me any place near by where I can obtain a night's lodging?" inquired a young man, who was riding leisurely along through the beautiful valley of V . The man thus accosted drew his rein, and waited until the other came up to his side, and then deliberately survey, ing him, said : " Well, no, noue near by. The village is six miles off. There's a nice house there for travelers, you will And u Xo, indeed, I'll not find myself there to-night, if there is any other shelter nearer. I am dreadfully tired now. Why, there," pointing with his whip to the southwest,"! see what looks from this distance like a very spacious building. I should think It would af ford accommodation for hundreds. Can not I stop there, think you?" . Another long deliberate look from the old man, with a comical expression af ter, and breaking into a chuckling little laugh, he answered : " Hardly, if your life depended on it." "Why not?" " Cause, you're too young, and far too good looking. Come along, sir. 'Taint no use to be wasting your time casting longing looks toward the Hall. It looks cloudy, and night's drawing nigh. There is no hope for you there, for if the rain was to come as it did in Noah's time, they wouldn't let you in np there. Come on. 3Iy place is only a mile up the road, and although it Is hardly the.place for a starchy chap like you, still I'll do the best I can for you. Betsey will give you as good a bowl of milk as the valley affords, and toss you up a short cake in less time ; and you're welcome, if you will." "Thank you, friend; and if your Betsey is like you, I shall be for better suited than in the public-house of the village. But you have excited my cu riosity about that great bouse on the hill there. You say they would not take me iu. Who are they ?" " The women folks" " Women are usually kind, consider ate, charitable " " Other women may be, and are, but not the Chapmans. That is, not to men folks ; they hate men, even such poor specimens as I. Although lame, old and nearly blind, they won't let me in side the inner gate. And the likes of you. I truly think that Old Hit Han- kind would set the dogs on you, and believe she was giving you your de serts," said '.he old man, with another chuckling laugh. "And who is she? And how can I possibly have incurred her ill-will?" asked the young traveler. She's the portress. Her name is Mehitabel Hankin. But the folks round about here have shortened and changed her name to suit her nature. You, or any other good looking young man, is her abomination, and her mistresses, every one of them, feel just as Hit does. Iu act they have taught her to think men the awfulest animals that live." " Ha ! ha ! How I would like to get a peep at those foiks. They are an in teresting set, truly. How many are there living there?" "Seven of the ladies six of the hands. "All women?" " Just so." " Old and ugly, every one, I'm sure." " Now you never was more mistaken n your life. They are not very young, except Hiss Silvia, their neice. She is not seventeen, and my Betsey says the sun never shone on such a perfect beau ty as she. And her six aunts are all handsome. The Chapmans were always noted for their good looks, and of late years they have been noted for some thing else " " Their hatred of our sex you mean, I suppose. But surely the beautiful Silvia does not feel so too?" Well, she has had no chance of thinking for herself. She has never seen a man, that I know of, except old Father Goodman, the priest, whocomes to their chapel to say mass. They never go out to church. Pretty Hiss Silvia could no more judge of men's looks by Father Goodman's than anybody could inagine your appearance by mine. But, Mister, we have been talking for fifteen minutes, and no names called. Mine is John Freeman, cooper by trade." A good, honest name and trade. Mine is Paul Hartley, and my profes sion an artist." "Jerusalem! If them folks on the hill knew that a picter painter was within a mile of "The Hall," they would call out the whole pack of hounds and run you out of the neighborhood. Oh, I'd like to see old nit's eyes flash f she knowed your nearnbouts," said John Freeman, and the woods reechoed his merry, ringing laugh. " Do tell me all about those women, and who they are. Hen haters, and particular artist detesters? Something must have happened to have so changed their natures. I'm sure there is a story to tell about that Hall." That's so. But there is my cot. Alirlit! I'll attend to your horse, Bet sey, make this young gentleman wel come." Betsey came to the door smiling, and a very good looking woman she was. Paul felt quite easy about trusting him self to her care. Pushing forward her best chair, and soon after handing Paul a glass of cool water, site hurried out to ;et ready what her John had promised. It was not long ere John and Paul Hartley returned to their conversation conceruing the Chapmans, and Paul urged that his host should tell him their tory. Buy John would not. He was a generous fellow, and although he dearly loved a chance to talk and tell stories, his Betsey was very fond of the same way of spending a spare hour, so he left the pleasure tor her, saying: "Xo. Wait a bit. Betsey will tell you. She lived at the Hall when it happened, and of course knows better than I about it, Paul's mind was filled with thoughts of the beautiful Silvia. Soon Betsey caino in, spread the cloth, and placed upon it a repast which Paul enjoyed very much, simple though it was the rich milk, short rake and fresh berries. When the table had been cleared away, John fixed chairs out on the little grass- plot, and bade Betsey tell their guest about the folks nt tjie Hall Betsey bad told the story so often be fore that there was no hesitancy how- to begin 'Oh, it was a sad day that brought young Harry Forrester to our house! He was an artist, and General Chap man met him up to the viluure, and brought him home to paint Hiss Lilly's picture. She was the youngest of our young ladies seven they were, all beauties; but she was so different. The General called her his sunbeam, she was so bright, with golden hair and dancing blue eyes. The other young ladies all dark of hair and eyes. Hiss Lilly was only sixteen then, and as dif ferent In her nature as looks, from her sisters. They were, like all the Chap man race, prouder than the proudest people of the land , no one good enough for them, and that was how they never had married. But she, Hiss Lilly, was so kind and sweet to every one, and treated all that came about her as if they were equals. So when Hr. Forrester came, my ladies kept him in bis place. 'A workman that their papa hired and paid,' they said. But Hiss Lilly would not mind their teachings. She was kind to the handsome young man, and would talk and walk and sing with him, until the picture was finished nearly two weeks. And then one morning, when we woke np, the painter was gone. He did not take the General's money for pay, but his heart's delight instead. Hiss . Lilly went with him. Oh, that dreadful day! They left a letter beg ging forgiveness, and telling where in Richmond a letter would reach them. The truth was told as easy as could be to her mother, who was in poor health. But she never got over it; she died within the week. And then the Gen eral he swore he'd never forgive his child and had her letter returned to the place they said, and ordered the post master to return any that might come from that place. The General never was like himself afterward. A year and little overwent by, when one day I was gathering fruit in the orchard. The stage came rumb ling down the road and stopped. I ran up to see who the visitor might be. And when the driver opened the door and assisted out a lady, at first I could not make out who she was; and hardly then, when she pushed aside her black crape vail, could I believe my eyes. So changed, pale and sorrowful she looked. Hiss Lilly it was. She looked ill. And oh ! woe to me ! I might have known better. But I was young and thoughtless, and when she whispered, 'Bessie, where is mamma? Let me see her first. She will forgive me,' I cried out : Oh, Lord help you, Hiss Lilly. Tour mother Is dead long ago; the week you went away.' " Oh, I knew what I'd done then. She pnt out her hands, and a deep L0D only toId tn,t 8i,e had heard me, when she dropped down at my feet. ' I screamed for help. We got her to the Hall. She never spoke after. That night she died ; and a little babe slept in the cradle the mother had laid in in her baby days. " In the trunk which came with Hiss Lilly were some little clothes marked "Silvia," and so the baby was called. Nothing more was known about her or Hr. Harry. We thought that she was, or believed herself a widow, from her deep black clothes. The General went straight out of his mind then knew nothing more than a baby after. Things became dreadfully tangled up in his business concerns, and in six months more he died. And then, from being thought the richest folks in the state, the ladies found out they only had the homestead left. There was cheating by some of the General's relations. And somehow, evil folks managed to set out a report that Hiss Lilly had been de serted by the father of Miss Silvia, and that she had been deceived by the hand some young artist. And so the ladies either had no more faith in any man, or may be they were afraid to try and find anything out about Hr. Harry, for truth might be worse than uncertainty. So they have become man haters; never go about and visit. Keep only woman about them, and live only for them selves. Folks say it is all a punishment for their pride. Poor Hiss Silvia! I pity her. She is jnst like her mother, and it is a shame to keep her imprisoned so. That is the story of the Chapmans, sir," said Betsey, in conclusion. - That night Paul Hartley dreamed of Silvia, and awoke in the morning, his mind filled with thoughts and plans for her delivery. Betsey Freeman was very much pleas ed with her young guests, and when he promised to return in a short time and paiut John's and her pictures, her heart was quite won, and she was ready to enter into Paul's plans for getting an insight of the nail. Yes, sir; I do think may be a ped dler, if he was old an ugly, and had in his pack some domestic table linen and such things, might get in ; for I heard Hit say they wanted such, and if I could not go to town to buy them, she would have to," said Betsey. Paul bade adieu to John and hi3 wife, and pushed into the latter's hand a full compensation for her kindness. Ten days after, when Betsey was up at the Hall, she was not very much sur prised to hear nit Hankin conic in and state the presence of an old- peddler. with just such things as they wanted. A consultation, in which the six sis ters were all present, then took place, the result being the admission of the peddler. The beauty of Silvia might well have thrown the old peddler completely off his guard, had he not been well disci plined. With childlike curiosity, she drew near to sec the pack opened. Throwing one after another piece of such things as he knew they wanted on a table, a litle way off from his pack, the peddler bade them suit themselves, and then returned to the otiier packages on the floor, out of which peeped many bright and prettier thing to please the maiden's eye. Eagerly she looked, and from the trinkets inquiringly to the face of the peddler, from which, as if by magic, faded tho hard, old look. Betsey stood ucar, covering the view from thef busy aunts. Tho spectacles were removed, and eyes dark and elo quent with untold words of admiration and affection, held herself entranced. Quickly the spectacles were resumed, as a warning movement of Betsey told of another's approach. Other articles of Interest were thrown on the table, and again the coast was clear. Then from out the old buckskin gloves slid a hand soft and as delicately formed as her own, into which was pressed a lit tle velvet case. Another look into the eyes, whose lieatity she already felt, and Silva's little hand close-i over her treas ure, as a child's over forbidden fruit, and in another moment it was safe from others' eyes. The ladies were well suited with the goods and prices, and the peddler de parted, with permission to eome again when he was near by. The aunts noticed not" that Silvia's eyes lingered long after the peddler's departing form. From that day a new life dawned up on Silvia, a child no longer, but a wo man in whose heart lived all a woman's love, confidence and devotion. Out from the little velvet case looked the pic tured face of Paul Hartley a face to teach a woman love noble, truthful, handsome. And when the little slip of paper on which was written "Trust me" met her eye, she did, fully believ ing a happy future was coming to her. Paul had thought so much of Silvia that he almost loved before meeting her. A glance at her beauty and guiiessness completely won his ' heart's first love. "But how to win her? to deliver her?" he said. With his mind and heart filled with these thoughts he sought the advice of his uncle, a clergyman residing in Rich mond. Finding an early opportunity for a conference with his relative, be was carried by him into his saetum. Scarcely had he begun his story, when, his eyes, wandering about the room, fell on a small minaturo painting. Springing from his seat, he gazed eager ly on the beautiful face, and exclaimed: "Who is this, uncle?" Astonished at is newpliew's almost wild eagerness, the old gentlemen re plied : "A young friend of ours." "Blither name, uncle? Quick! Pray tell me. Surely it is my Silvia?" "No, boy, it is not. That is Mrs. For rester." Heaven ! ho w strange ! Tell me, un cle, of her. She is Silvia's mother- Where did you know her?" asked Paul, with much agitation. "Why, boy, I married her. It was a rnnaway match. And, poor child, she suffered so much from it. Your aunt and I were much attached to them. He, young Forrester, was an artist, and I'm sure, if he had lived, would have ac quired fame and fortune. He painted that picture of his wife and gave it to us." "He did, you say? When, uncle?" "In less than a year after his marri age. Vt hen the cholera raged here, ne was one of the first victims. She left us to return to her friends, and although with continued promises to write to us, we have never heard one word from or of her. Your aunt wrote, but never received a replied. Now tell me what yon know of her?" Paul told his story.or rather Betsey's and of the suspicions set afloat by evil hearts; and when he had finished his uncle said : "Poor child ! Thank God I can do jus tice to their memory. How wonderful strange are the ways of Providence ! Paul, my boy, I think we can smooth your path -considerably. And let me give you more information, which to you and me is of little consequence, but to your Silvia's relatives will be very agreeable. The Forresters Lilly's hus band's family are as proud an ancient as the Chapmans. Just before Harry s meeting Miss Chapman, he had incur red the severe displeasure of his father by refusing decidedly to marry a young lady picked out for him. It was a very desirable connection in every respect, and old Hr. Forrester had hot forgiven Harry for his refusing to consummate his great hope when the poor boy died. If he ever knew of his marriage, he never acknowledged either it or Harry's wife, that I know of. I think, if you go to the aunts bearing the certificate of Mr. Forrester's marriage, you will meet with a favorable reception." Harry shook his head, and told how difficult it was for any man to gain an interview. "Only old Father Goodman has the entree." "Goodman! Bless me Father? What, a priest, yon mean !" "Yes, sir; the Rev. Father Good- man." More and more wonderful! This must be my old school-mate, Will Good- man. I knew he was somewhere in the valley. We were the best friends at school, and I've no doubt he would be really pleased to see or hear from me now. Although we have chosen dif ferent paths to find our way to Heaven, that is no reason why we should not love each other here as we shall there. It will be all right, Paul. I'd like a trip through that section. We will start to-morrow morning, find Father Goodman, and I think he will take ns to Chapman Hall." It was as Paul's uncle had said. Fa- ther Goodman was very much delighted to see his old friend and schoolmate; and whtn the good clergyman, Hr Hartley, told his business and produced a copy of the marriage certificate of Lilly Chapman and Harry Forrester, the kind-hearted Father would not de lay an hour, but declared he must go directly and carry that balm to the wounded hearts of the Chapman's. It would have done John Freeman good to have seen the amazed look of Hit Mankjn when Father Goodman en tered the lodge, accompanied by two very handsome men, and bade her to proceed and announce their presence to her mistresses. What Father did nnd said was right, not one of the Inmates of Chapman Hall ever doubted. Still a grave look settled on the faces of the six sisters when Hit did Father Goodman's bidding. Three of them entered the reception room. A little while, and the grave looks gave place to those of tliankfulness,nye. even Joy. A moment more, and Hit Mankin, if present, would have wit nessed a sight which would likely have blinded or killed her, namely, her mis tresses' hands elasped iu those of men! and heard them simultaneously exclaim, "Welcome! welcome!" None hut those who knew of such pride as the Chapmans possessed, can imagine the relief, the joy, which was giver, them by Father Goodman's anil his friend's visit. -The name, of Chap man still remained siotlcss, pure and proud, as in long years gone by. It was a day of rejoicing. And Sil via, tho image of her mother, the mem ory of whom had grown then so doubly dear, was brought In to see her mother's friend. There was no show of surprise in Silvia's greeting of Paul. Really It wits no surprise at all. She had learned to love him, trust und w att his coming which her heart constantly whispered, "will be soon." From that day there was a radical change In the Inmates of Chapman Hall. Hen came and went once more. Paul soon won the kind favor of all; and when, with Silvia's hand clasped in his. he went and begged her aunts' permis sion to hold It as his own forever, they smiled, and blessed the young folks' love. Since then, one and another of the Chapman sisters have placed confidence sufficient in men to trust their hearts to their keeping. Three are married now. "And the pride which fills their bosoms now is the pride of motherhood. [From the New York World.] A TRIP TO VIENNA. What it Will Cost—Important Information for Tourists and Exhibitors. Inquiries have reached us as to the programme which may best be follow ed by parties or individuals wishing to attend the Vienna Exposition, next summer, and the following items of route and probable expense will be found to contain the information need ed. Of course the ocean passage Is a question for every man's own decision. Perhaps the pleasantest and most con venient route is to Paris via. Liverpool, or direct via. Havre, though the Ham burg and Bremen steamers afford ad vantages about the same. Should the Paris route be decided upon, sleeping cars ran be taken at that city for Vien na, which run through without change, making the passage in thirty-six hours. From the traveling ceutres of Vienna the road to the Prater Is no more than the trip from the City Hall to the Amer ican Institute Fair building. The Pra ter is northwest of the cLy, and a line of cars, propelled by a stationary en gine, will run during the exhibition as frequently as its travel shall demand ; or the walk is pleasant and short. For American exhibitors the arrangement of the department is peculiarly conven ient. To the United States is allotted the extreme western division of both the main building (palace of industry) and the hall of machinery, being that portion of the fair nearest the Vienna road, and through which the exhibitor or visitor must pass before reaching the departments of other nations. The ex position, as we have already noticed, will open on the 1st of May next and close on the 1st of November. The United States transport steamers will leave New Y'ork with such goods as we may send for exhibition probably in February next. Except the United States, all nations to be represented have already applications more than sufficient to fill the space assig ned to them. The backwardness of American ex hibitors is, according to Commissioner Van Buren, attributable to an opposi tion movement made in the interests of a "patent ring" which.desirpns of main taining its monopoly of the sale of val uable foreign patents in Europe, has given currency to statements to the fol lowing effect, viz.: That every patented article put on exhibition at Vienna thereby lorfeits its patent, and may be copied by any one. The exhibition of valuable patents at so widely attended a fair brings the owner at once into di rect contact with crowds of purchasers from all over the world, and the busi ness of the patent broker is thus inter-' fered with. GeneralVan Buren declares that this widely spread statement has no grounds whatever. To every exhi b- itor the Austrian government grants a complete protection of his patent for the time of its exhibition, which may at any time be exchanged for a patent on the payment of $11. This patent is is sued under the law of the country, and grants protection for the space of one year, at the expiration of which time, f the article patented is not manufac tured, its patent is re-assumed by the government. The question of the ex pense of attending the exhibition has been asked. This again is, of course, a variable quantity. Persons desirous of making up a party for the trip will do well to look at the estimates made by Messrs. Cook, Son and Jenkins, who will open on the first of January, at 262 Broadway, a branch of the celebrated touristoffice in London. They have se cured a special steamer of the White Star line, which will leave New York on the 28th of June next, carrying a party, yet to be made up,- of teachers, male or female, on a so-called educa tional tour through Scotland, England, Belgium, the Rhine district and Bava ria, to the World's Fair, at Vienna, re turning via. Switzerland and Paris. This party will pass much time at Vien na, and visit nearly all places of inter est in Continental Europe and Great Britain. Its members are limited to teachers, but its price list shows what rates may be made profitable should any large party be formed. The round trip every necessary expense included, costs $100, gold, the party returning August 31. A masonic excursion is also organ ized, concerning which information may be obtained of A. H. Rambo, Co lumbia, Pa. The Survey of Palestine. The first visible results of the labors of the surveying party sent out by the Palestine exploration fund have been received In England, in the shape of three tracings of portions of the new map of the Holy land, embracing an area of 530 sqnar miles. On these maps are laid down, with mathematical accuracy, the trees, the plantations, the villages, and the houses in short, every object that stands upon the ground, Other tracings are expected soon, when some plan for their publication will be adopted. In Palestine there are entire districts entirely unexplored; and. not withstanding the numerous books on the country, it is. far less known ami understood than any other historic region. Under these circumstances a survey of the Holy Land, with an iden tification of ttie ancient cities, is of nn deniable importance to students of Bi ble History; and the completion of the work is looked forward to with great interest. The amount of field work act ually "plotted" covers one thousand square miles expanding over a belt of I aim seventy miles long, between Ram lob, in the south, and the plain of Es- draelnn on the north.

THE CURIOUS SAXON REMAINS. A Visit to King Alfred's Saxon Palace at Mudgeley. A London letter to the Newark Adver tiser says : The other dav I tiaid a visit to the ruins of an old palace about two miles from the little vlllao-e of Theale. and eight from the Cathedral Gty of Wells, Somerset. It bears the name of Court Farm, or Palace Garden. I stumbled upon it quite accidentally In a narrow lane which faces the palace lnclosure opposite an old Saxon well. As it is verv imDrobable that manr of the read ers of the Daijy have heard anything about this old-fashioned spot I propose to give a few particulars that I have gathered respecting it. I found the foundation of the said palace facing the east,, covering the greater part of the entire field, now used as a sheep pasture, and running north and southward for about eighty yards square, which was probably the outer walls of the great baxon nail, ana to the right, near an orchard, the King's fish pond, the royal apartments occu pying about forty yards by sixty on the right of the great hall. Though the walls have been long since leveled, the foundations still show through the long years, and many large stones still lie about the north ditch, showing tnat thev must have been not only lofty, for such a great structure, but at last six yards in thickness. Here in this place a very old history records the ract tnat King Alfred had a summer palace and used to sail across the sea arm or mere in his little skiff or bark, from his royal fort at Athelney,to catch wild fowl and to fish, and in this very palace, after the ceremonv of baptism at Aller was over, and Guthrum the Dane had been con firmed in the rites of Christian baptism and the Christian clothes had been ta--ken off, and removed the body of the converted nasun Dane at Wedmore Church, we read that King Alfred en tertained the Danish chier witn leasl insrs and great rejoicing at bis summer palace for ten days at Hudgeley. This Is one of the most Interesting snots in England for the lover of Sax on history. Some years ago a few la borers were employed in carting away a portion of the west outer wall next the cave In order to mend the roads with old materials, when out rolled a silver sooon of Saxon manufacture, having the private mark upon it of the Kind's own icweler, a small star, an emblem so much used not only in the decorations of the snlt roof, the south aisle of the Saxon Church at Wedmore. but also in King Ina's Church at W ells in 704. as mav be seen also upon the ancient clock, brought over from the neighboring abbey of Glastenbury, in the north ai3le. As soon as this valua ble relic came to light, immediately there was a squabble among the work men, and there would have been a ngnt if the- Rev. T. Williamson, icaror Theale, had not been on the spot, who, order to save and preserve the pre cious reltf from being drunk away in a beer house, melted, or sent to "my nncle" for a loan, immediately pur chased it for a sovereign, and a most handsome pattern it is. A week .or two back Hr. John Hellor, the Alfred nis- torian, dug out of tne nortnern em bankment . belongins to the palace a portion of a reflex Danish sword blade and a rude irou leg shackle or bucket handle. Also, a Saxon di inking cup of rreat aire, at some considerable depth.. Upon it were two handles to pass it from mouth to mouth and from nana to hand, and also several little yellow flowers, for in this castle or Saxon pal ace King Alfred, it Is said, had 300 troops or Saxon soldiers. The cup is about five and a half inches in diameter at the outer rim, and the belly is flat ; also the bottom likewise. The whole Is of a dark brown, neatly polished and ;lazed, and it has a dotted run oi a jtwnv eravish pattern. It Is hard baked, and so very old that the pottery -ein is cracked in all directions, as u it was going to fall to pieces, though Hr. Hellor had the good fortune to get it out of the earth entire. ' The nlace is situated in a glorious spot as regards scenery", overlooking the vil lage of Here, the Abott's house and the entire valley of the Hendips, at the foot of which are the fruitful lands. uow drained, where once, in King Al fred's days (880,) the sea tide rolled np alternately every twelve hours and formed a sort of resplendent lake, even low water, always covered witn plen of water fowl and wild ducks, which glided in and out amongst the green iters, rushes and willows which lined the water's edie, and no doubt the time of Gnthrnm's conversion 870 to 884 King Alfred, when his monestery at Athelney was completed, often enjoyed a ouiet sail on the beautiful lake or sea arm when not at war with the Danes, esueciallv the last three years of his life, when he had peace from his ene mies. The sea having long since re treatc1, the whole valley has been drained. The teeth of sharks have been found In Wackey Hole, testifying to the sea having once come up as far as Glas tonbury, and whose famous Abbey I nronose to describe 'in a future letter. The vicar of Theale has a choice collec tion of bones of elephants hyenas and liears' teeth, he found at tlic mouth of ookey cavern, near Wells nd ,so some silver coins of King Cannt, Har old Harefoot. Edwanl. Julius Caesar, ami other valuable Saxon and Roman coins, about a peck of which said silver coius were discovered in some Saxon "raves in Wedmore churchyard. Forgetful. Just as a passenger train on the De troit and Slilwaukee road recently, was ar of Detroit, and running at the rate of ten or twelve miles an hour, an old man suddenly leaped from his sea, rushed to the platform, ami bounded off, turning about forty somersaults be fore he brought up against a fence.
