Apart from Lady Saxonlinry's almost insane grief for the child himself. 'it was a great inif fortune in a jwenniary ttuint of view. With her son's death a considerable por tion of her income tiatsed from her; her Tpflourccsas tiic widqw of Sir Arthur Sax onbury not being large. Just enough wan left her to starve upon, she groaned, tak ing ttn exaggerated view of things, as 6he was apt to do. Her grief was, indeed, pit iable. She persisted in attributing all the blame of the boy's deatrrto Maria. She commenced a system of unkind treat ment, cou'd not endure the sight of her; nnd when she did sec her, it .ih nnlv to break out into sobs and harsh reproaches. "I should not bear it," observed Mr. Yorke, one day, to Maria. "Is it just?" returned Maria, in a pas sionate tone of appeal. "When I saw him to the door of the college, how could I im agitip that he pretended to go in only to blind nie that he would disobediently run to the canal the moment I was out of eicht? Is it just of Lady Saxonbury." "No. Very unjust. I en I should emancipate niyeelC' "I cannot lead this life. It makes mc eo wretched that I sometimes begin to doubt whether I am not really guilty. I will go away rather than bear it." "Let mc emancipate you, Maria," said Mr. Yorke. She cafet at him a rapid glance.

It was your fath er s wish." What was she to answer? She did not know. Aconllict was at work within her. Sue liked Mr. Yorke, but she loved Ed srird Janton. Edward Janson, however, she could never hope to marry, and her days were passed in striving to forget him Willi Mr. Yorke she should go back to the dear old home at baxontmry. "Gireoie until to-morrow, and you shall have an auswer," she said to him. "This Los come upon me suddenly." "Very well. Remember, Maria, that during the suspense, I shall neither cat nor bleep: I shall have neither peace nor rest. Be my wife, and your days shall be a dream oi love. "A dream of love!" she bitterly repeat ed, as he left her. "For him, perhaps: not tor mei She remained in her room until evening, communing with herself, and then she sought Lady Saxonbury.eaying gliewishcd to consult her. "I am not worth, consulting now,'' was the querulous answer. "My spirits are cone, my heart is broken. "Mr. Yorke wants me to marry him." "Mr. Yorke!" returned her step-mother, somewhat aroused, "lias he asked you.' "Ick today. "Then you are more lucky than you de serve "I do not know whether to accept or re ject him." "Reject him!" fiercely interposed Lady Saxonbury. ' 'You arc out of vour senses. With his fine fortune, his position, his amiability "Is he amiable?" asked Maria. "lie puzzles me at times." "What puzzles you?" "His words. I don't understand them, And the cxprcstion of Lis countenance." 'Had voti not better set up for a phre nologist or whatever they call the char latans who pretend to read faces?" sarcas tically retorted Lady Saxonbury. 'Mamma, listen, ir l to accept him, will be because I am unhappy with you." "Pray, why should there be an 'if in the matter at all? Why should you hesi- ate, or think of rejecting lam. "Because I do not love him. answered Maria, in a low tone. "I like Mr. Yorke, but it requires more than liking to marry a man: or ought to require it" "Oh. if vou are going to run on aiiout romance and sentiment, I do not under stand it, returned Lady Saxonbury. "I never did more than 'Iifce'my two hus bands, vet I was happy with them. My love was wasted on somebody else; when I was almost a child. ' "Was it?'' cried Maria, eagerlv. "It- .was. It- we-ovr -ami. done with before I married, and I did not make the less good wife. It is bo with ninety-nine women out of everv hundred: and rely up on it, their wedded lives are all the hap pier for their early romance being over Romance and reality do not work well to gether, Maria. You are inexperienced, child." Maria was beginning to think so. "I eive vou mv advice. Maria, and 1 give it for your happiness. Marry Mr. Yorke. and be thankful. Reject him. and pass your afterlife in repining, in self-reproach at your own folly." Mr. Yorke received the answer be wish- ed for. They were to be married in Eng land, in Autumn, but preparations were once commenced, it was only to be expected that Lady Saxonbury would now go home immediately, nut sue declin ed to do so. In spite of the somewhat cynical remonstrances of Mr. Yorke, she flatly refused. She would go home for the wedding in September, she said, and she would not go before. Perhaps some vague hope of recovering, even yet, the body of the child from the canal, chained her to the place. So Mr. Yorke remained on perforce m the despised town, leeling that he and they were alike out of place in it. CHAPTER VIII. THE RETURN' OF TUB "RCSIIISC WATER." August came in, and the fishing-boats began to return from Iceland, laden with their spoil: by ones, by twos, bv threes, by little fleets of them. At length all were in, save two, the Belle Jlelcneand the Rtishing Water. These two delayed much, and a report got about, nobody new how, lor it was certainly without foundation, that the Rushing Water was wrecked. Miss Saxonbuny, in spite of herself and her betrothal, heard the evil fear with a sickening heart, and looked out for it in secret more yearningly than any one. Or than any, save one. For, if her anx iety was great, what wassjt compared with that of poor Mrs. Janson? One day, it was on Friday, Thcrese had gone to the Ash-market to purchase the usual fast- Jav's dinner, when in the midst of her jually bargaining with the huh vender, news Hew about the mantel that one of the two missing boats was signalled it was thought to be the Jluslang Water Dashing the disputed fish back on the woman's board, away went Therese to er mistress, and without circumlocution announced that the Rushing Water was making the harbor. Mrs. Janson went down to the port. The boat was then in, and being moored to the side: La Belle Jfclene. tShe asked the crew news of the Rushing Water, but they had not seen her on their passage home. Yet the Rushing Water had been one of the first boats to leave Iceland. Dieheaiteiiing news. As Mrs. Janson went back strain, with a heavy step, she encountered Miss Saxonbury. "iouifg lady, go home and pray, tue 6aid in her abrupt stern manner; "pray that vou may not have caused his death as well as his misery. Stay upon ypur knees until heaven shall be pleased to bear you. as 1 am going to do. i here is little hope now." "I heard the Hushing H.ikTlioil come in this morning," answered Miss Saxonbury, in a faltering tone. 'So did I. But it proves to be the Ifelenc. And the Rushing Water left Ice land days before her." She passed on with her pale severe lace, and Maria Saxoubury continncd hjy:way. 1 he days went on, live or six oi mem. Ladv and Miss Saxonbury were sitting in the twilight, the latter expecting Mr, Yorke. whom the was trying with all her might and main to like better, as a duti ful bride-elect tliould, when one of their French servants came in, and said a gen tleman was asking to see her. "Me I To bec nief ' returned Maria. "A centleman-sailor, mademoiselle. I think it is Mr. Janson. He says will you allow lnm a minutes conversation' "O mammal she uttered, "Mr. Janson!

He was in sailor's attire, his glazed hat carelessly thrown off, looking, or Maria faucied so, handsomer than ever. "Then vou are in safety! she exclaim ed. grasping his hand in her agitated thankfulness, perhaps for his mother's sake, but forgetful, at the moment, of Mr. Yorke. ol the whole world, "we have been counting you as amongst the lost" "Our homeward voyage has been bad, perilous, unlucky altogether, save that we have ultimately arrived.; Jttiss caxon bury, I hear you have been mourning Harry as dead." "Yea, yes. Oh yes! ' "He is safe. He has been with ns." She did not scream, she suppressed it. Then she thougbtthat he must be dream ing, or that she was. "He cot in some trouble, fell into the water, and was afraid to go home," pro ceeded Mr. Janson. "That mischievous imp, Paul, encountered him in his wet plight, persuaded him into making the voyage; brought him on board, coiled him up under some sails and rope, and four-and-twenty hours after wc left port, Master Harry came out. I wished the captain to put back, but he laughed at me; so he had to go with us, and I have taken care of him. Paul says Harry bribed him with a livc-frauc puce; Ihtic francs for himself, and two to give to a messenger to take word to his mother where lie had gone." "No messenger came to us"," eagerly in terrupted Maria. "As I find. WJicn I landed an hour ago, I heard that the boy had been mourned as dead. So I came on at once, after calling upon my mother. I should not have presumed to ask for you," he pointedly added, "but that I assumed it might be better to acquaint you first with the news, ere it was broken to LadySax onbury." "Oh! how shall we ever thank you?" said Maria, attributing all the good to Mr. Janson, in her confused feelings of joy. "-Where is Harryf "Waiting just inside the' cafe at the next door, until I send for him, and being made a lion of.'' Maria 'went into the drawing-room, which was almost dark then,. and .knell down beside Lady Saxonbury's chair. "Mammal mammal I have some joyful news for you. You will not faint if I tell it!" "What news will ever be joyful to me again, Maria? What is the matter with you, that you kneel in that manner? How you tremble I "Mamma suppose i nave news to ten you about Harry? That he is found?"

"Maria, what do you mean?" faintly asked Lady Saxonbury. lie is, he is. Dearest Lady baxon- bury, he has been out with Mr. Janson in the Rusldng Water." fche did not continue, tor the door has opened, and a happy lad stood peeping in, in a nondescript attire, composed partly of his own thing?, partly of Paul's. He was browned with the sea air, taller than before.and his fair curia were wildly entan gled. With a cry he flew into his moth ers arms, and she sobbed upon his necK and kissed his pretty face and his untidy hair, and strained him to her as if she could never let him go again. Ladv Saxonbury will you forgive my saung that I think you will find him a more dutiful boy than he used to vet' said Mr. Janson, who had followed him. He has had to roush it, and he now knows the value of a happy home and a mother's love.

' "Oh yen, indeed, mamma,'' sobbed the lad, "I know how naughty I was, and I win If.rand never grieve you and Maria am.

And now that my task is done, I have only to take my leave," observed Mr. Janson, holding out his hand. "This' hoiife was an interdicted place to me be fore I left; I conclude that it is so still." Miss saxonbury put her hand in his, and burst into tears. He held it, and looked at her. "Maria, what do thoee tears mean? That you hate me as yon did before? ' I never hated you,' she answered. forgetting prudtnee in her tumultuoubly glad feelings! "It was the contrary, I am very miserable."

"O Maria! must this indeed be the end ing?" "Yes," 6hc answered, the tears rainiivj from her eyes, and her heart aching with pain.

"For the last time," he murmured; and she made but faint resistance. "He ought not to grudge it to ua. Now farewell-forever. Mr. Janson turned to leave the room He saw not that somebody drew awav from the door, and stood bolt upright, in silence, against the wall of the dark ante room, while he passed out somebody with a revengeful face, and tcetli that glistened like a tiger's.

Continned next week. llalllc Turn Beautiful Youug Lady. One of the most novel as well as excit ing rallies that ever took pface in Sey mour came off on Saturday evening last. Miss Minnie Ularence made the movel proposition of putting herself up to be raffled off at fifty cents a chance. At first the matter was treated as a joke, but when it became known that the offer was a bona Jule one chances went rapidly. and in less than one hour every chance was taken, and heavy premiums were paid by young men anxious to win the beautnui and lovely prize. Miss Minnie is a most bewitchinc beauty of eighteen summers, an orphan, of respectable parentage, and a member of the best society of the State. She was decidedly the belle of Seymour, and was loved and admired by all whoever became acquainted with her, and probably en vied just the least bit bv the voune ladies. She is a bright blonde, perfect in form, lair complexion, and has most ravishing ly beautiful eyes. Ever since she came to Seymour she has been the center of attraction and the admiration of the men. Injustice to Miss Minnie, we should stale that she cave the winner the privileee of accepting or refusing her, and reserved the 6ame privilege for herself. There. may have been several in the crowd she would have refused, but there were none, we venture to esy, who would have' re fused her. How could they? The h6ur set for the rallle came and found all ready to try their luck. Misi Minnie was there in person, dressed in the height of fashion, to lend a charm to the scene. She stood leaning gracefully against a show-cash, never speaking a word nor betraying the least emotion, or showing tae slightest preference for any of the contestants, excepting there was a perceptible twinkle in her eyes when sorifcyoung and handsome "lovier" would shajce the dico. Name alter name was called and each one in turn would shake the box with nervous hand until all but three had thrown nnd nothing higher than thirty eight had been thrown. Then came Lynn I-olkcorners turn. Lynn is a blonde himself and a clever, hard-working young man, and perhaps the twinkle of her eyes nerved him to the work. At any rate he tossed the ivory with steady hand aud the scorer called for forty-six. The other two throws were made amid too much excitement to be counted and the prize was awarded to Lynn. Minnie came forward and took Lynn's arm and the two went out together amid the cheers of the crowd. She accompanied him to his father's hotel, where she was presen ted to his relatives, who bad not the pleas ure ot her acquaintance belore, alter which she was escorted home. We of course do not know, certain, bntas Lynn is a good, clever young man, and she would be an honor to any household, we are inclined to think neither of them will back out Seymour (InJ.) Star. A Knunirny 3Iouutaiu. Although landed propery is, as a rule, a coveted possession, vet. like many oth er blessings, it has its drawbacks, and a singular example of the troubles to which land-owners are occasionally liable has just occurred at Hagsgate, in the Cleve- muuuisinci. wnere an estate lias actual ly absconded and has been discovered on the top of another estate, where it has comfortably settled itself and will have to be moved back again at no slight expen diture of money nnd trouble. I he property that has thus played tru ant consists of a mountain belonging to Lord Faversham, which having been honeycombed by mines and otherwise disrespectfully treated, has at last vented its annoyance and cut matters short by ruuuins. 'or rather slipping, away. In stead, however; of betaking itself to some secluded spot where its presence would be welcome, or where, at least there is ac commodation Jbr 'it, it has most inconven iently deposited, itself on tne neighboring property of Lord de L'lsle, where it has blocked'up a turnpike road for nearly half a mile, and excited considerable alarm in the bosoms of the rate-payers of the town shin, who urge that its owner is re sponsible for its vagaries; and bound, if not to taKC it uome, ai an events iu nuu it another lodging. This inconsiderate act on the part of the mountain has already given rise to legal proeeediugs, nnd a law suit is coming on at the next York assizes, when the mountain will no doubt prove profitable to lawyers if to no one else. One of the most painful features of the affair is that the great, unwildely thing arrives at its new home "in bits." Those who are displeased at its presence have not even the poor conolation of feeling that the worst is over, but are kept in a elate of constant fidget by the apprehen sion that there is more to come.'' Pall Mall, London,) Gazette. A man was seen coming out of a news- naner ofhee in Texas with one eve gouged out aud his nose bpread all over his face like a piece of raw beef, and one of his ears chawed off.

A Mnn Who lAxca His Motliei-iu-law Eveu Unto Elopement. Highland (Obis) Kcws. About three weeks ago-onr community was suddenly startled by the rumor that the wife of one of the most respectable farmers in this county, living about two miles southeast of the town a woman who had previously borne a good charac ter, and been an active member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and who ie the mother of three married daughters, had eloped with one of her son's-in-law, the husband of her oldest daughter. So utterly depraved, unnatural and almost incredible did such conduct at first seem that many refused to believe it (oursclf among the number,; until evidence too strong to be denied or doubted was pro trnr-Bhockrng-.Hory- I lirto Tvna tin MMittf I was only too true. There was no doubt about it, and the euilty party were seen at Chilicothe after their disappearance from their homes they had deserted and left desolate, going eastward on the cars, as if flying from the vengeance of those whom they had so cruelly wronged and be trayed. But the injured husband and deserted wife bad no thought of pursuit, and the woman and her guilty paramour kept on their journey, till they reached Cumber land, Maryland. There they were over taken and found, a fw days ago, by Hen ry Rhodes, Esq , the well known lawyer of this place, who pursued them for the purpose of .securing a claim of several hundred dollars, which he held against the young man. Mr. Rhodes succeeded by some means in frightening or persuad ing the fugitives to return to this place, and they arrived here on the noon train Monday. Soon after their arrival, Frank Newliy, the absconding son-in-law, was arrested and arrainged before 'Squire Doggelt on a charge of atteniptting to de fraud his creditors. He was held to bail for cxamintion on Tuesday (to-day) at ten o'clock, his step-father, Mr. T. S. Patton, giving bonds for his appearance. The hearing of the case of Rhodes vs. Ncwby took place this morning (Tues day,) before Esqure Doggett, at the Coun cil Chambers, which was filled with'spec tators. Messrs. Sloanc and Smith ap peared as Newby's counsel.and moved I113 discharge on the ground that the plain tiff's affidavit was defective, and did not sufficiently sustain the charges against Ncwby to make out a prima facie case and justify his arrest. After arguments by counsel on both sides, Charles u. oomns, Esq , and Mr. Rhodes himself appeared for the latter as plaintiff, the Justice over ruled the objections to the affidavit and held that it was sufficient. Mr. Sloane then filed his exceptions the decision, and demanded a jury trial for the defendant. The trial was set for Saturday next, at ten o'clock, before Esq., Doggett. Newby's bearing was very different from what might have tjeen expected of one in his disgraceful position. lie did not seem to feel the least sense of shame or humil iation, but, on the contrary, laughed and chatted with those around him as boldly and unabashed as if he had not the slight est concern in the proceedings. -There was a general expression of surprise and disgust at his unseemly and unbe coming behavior, in view of all the cir 'cumstanccs. It remainst to be briefly told what be came of Newby's infatuated companion in sin, Mrs. Martha M. Heistead, wife of Mr. Samuel Heistead, the well-known and universally respected fanner of this township. Various reports are in circu lation, but the most reliable seems to be that herfather.Mr. Denipsey Garrett.who is also one of the most respectable citi zens of our township and county, has taken her home, where she is now staying, and jt is to be hoped, bitterly repenting of the terrible sin by which she has brought such overwhelming disgrace and shame not only upon herself, but upon all who have had the misfortune to be connected with her by ties of kindred and marriage. Mr. Heistand. who is well known by his r.e:ghbors to have been a kind and indul gent husband, and never to have given his unnappy wile tue least excuse lor ner conduct, has applied for a divorce on the ground of adultery, and the case win come up at the term of court commencing next week. Mrs. Heistand.is said to be quite good- looking, is about thirty-five years of age, and is the mother of four children the vouncest a daughter of about six years the other daughters all married. Newby is about twenty-five years old, small, and of very homely appearance. He has been married about three years, anu nan iwu children. He will be remembered by many of our citizens as a clerk in the grocery store kept some years ago by Henry I urner ai tne corner oi uigu uuu Walnut streets,' now occupied by Mr. Boysell. We understand that Newby's wife has declared that she will have nothing more to do with him. under any circumstances a determination for which she will be commended by all sensible people.

He was taken up for dead, with a fractured skull, and carried into the house. All efforts to bring him to consciousness were unavailing, and the doctor was called. Finally the doctor, haying trepanned him, turned and asked Mrs Thornton for a silver dollar to put in where the piece of skull was wanting. At this remark Ira, who had been breath ing heavily, turned in the bed and groan ed out: "Wouldn't a cent do as well?"

Finally he hit upon a business trip to Kansas City, which he informed his wife would keep him till the midnight train. She was sorry he had to go, and enjoined him to take good care of himself.

Watching the Hour, he arrived home about ten minutes after the mid night train from St. Louis was due at the depot. The partner of his bosom sympa thized with him as he talked about the tediousness of a night journey by rail with no acquaintances, and the artful Gammon chuckled pleasantly as he wit nessed the success of his little trick. A day or two afterwards, Mr. Gammon came home to tea, and found Mrs. G. sit ting in the rocking-chair, with the evening paper in her hand, and with rather a pc culiar expression of -countenance, which Gammon could not quite understand, but which seemed to be indicative of some thing in the wind. So, he sauutered over toward the window, plunged his hands down into his pockets, and whistled soft ly to himsclt as he wondered what the deuce was up anyway. Mrs. G. watched him for a few moments, and finally broke the silence with the inquiry: 'Did your Kansas City business prove satisfactory, my dear?"

Ah me (with a deep sigh) there are so very very many things we cannot quite see through. For instance, the Evening Patriot says that on the night you went to Kansas City the midnight train up was an huo'r late (sud den stop of Mr. G.'s whistle,) and yet, my love, you got home only ten minutes after the time it was rightfully due at the depot.

ANOTHER MUNCHAUSEN The "Washington CorreHpouiIent ot the PittHburs Trailer TcIIw it Sto ry the Devil IliiuscirWonlriCiag. At. i Wajhington Letter to Pittstur j Leader. I was related a very Interesting incident yesterday, which has never been made pub lie through any of the journal of tiic day. If at the time of its occurrence it had been published it wonld have furnished one of the sensations of the time. "Double-leaded" type and display bead-tines would have been called into play'to do honor to the importance of the "trews. This, then, id nothing more or less than the history of an attempted assassination of President Grant. The attempt was so very near a success that had it not been for the pluck and personal bravery of one man, Gener al Grant would long ago have been gatb ered to his fathers, and perhaps the thint termr question would never have come np for discussion. The truth of the incident admits of no- question, and it is a great wonder to me how such a bit of news never became known at the time. However, circum stances explain this In a measure. the attempted assassination was made when Grant was a General of the army, a short time before he was elected President of the United States. At the time he oc cupied the honse lately nsed by General Sherman, on I street, between Second and Third streets. General Grant came walking along home one day unaccompanied. The neigh borhood of Massachusetts avenue and Sixth street, where the attack was made, is one of the quietest and most retired por tions of the city. As the General came along to cross Sixth street. Dr. Charles H. Bowen. a well-known physician of this city. was standing in front of his office on Mas sachusetts avenue. As Dr. Bowen was looking at the Gen eral pass by, he saw a man dart out from behind the bow-window with a revolver in his hand, shouting out to Grant terri ble imprecations, and theivtaesaid, "Hold on, you Yankee son of a P with this! he raised his revolver, and was about to fire, when Dr. Bowen, who is a very large and powful man, placed himself between the would-be assassin and the future President. The doctor cried out to the man, "What- are yon about there?" The man replied: "I am after that xan kee son of a I I am going to blow bis brains out!" ''The' Doctor a cool-blooded man, who . as seen fourvvears during the late war. said: '"In order to shoot him, you will have to snoot me. wme, now, put up mat pistol." The man replied in a frenzy: "Stand out of the way, or I will killiyouytoo. I am an Alabamian. The war has robbedme of everycent I had in the world. I am going to get even with, that man tnerr, and then I donVcare what becomes of me." During this parley General Grant slip ped out briskly, turning his head -back, now and then." The Doctor engaged the . man until Grant was around the corner of I street. Then he went boldly up tojhe mau, and quickly placing his right Anger under his nose, throwing his head back, the athletic physician then "let in his left" as the sporting phrase goes, and the man tumbled to the ground, tie airo lost bis revolver in the fall. The Doctor picked it np. and then said to the man: "It would be a good thing for you to get outof this town as soon aa you can. It will not be a good place for you alter this." Ths man at this ran away, and the aor tor never saw him afterwards. The re volver he still retains'as a souvenir of the attempt upon the life of General Grant.
