HORACE VARGRIYE'S CONFESSION1. She lined her face, all blinded and blot led by her tears, and looking at him for one brief instant, let it fall again upon her Jiands. "Your nncle died Ellinor, and the fair elevation of this palace of mv life, which I had built with such confidence, was fihivered to the ground, The fortune was left to you on condition that you married Henry Dalton. Women are ambitions. You would never surely resign such a fort une. You would marry young Dalton." Ahia was the lawyers answer to the all important question. But those tcnJer gray eyes, looking up from under their vail of inky lashes, had told a sweet ec cret, and perhaps your generous heart might count this fortune a very small thing to flingaway for the sake of the man you loveJ. This was the lover's answer, ruid hoped still, Ellinor, to win my dar ling. You were not to be made acquaint ed with the conditions of your uncle's will until you attained your majority. You were, at the time ofliisdeatli.barely twenty years ol age; there was, then, an entire year in which vou would remain ignorant of Die penalties attached to this unexpected wealth. In the meantime, I, as sole executor(your uncle, you see.trust cd me most entirely), had the the custody of the funded property John Arden, of Arden, had left. "I have told you, Ellinor, that I was a speculator. My profession threw me in the way of speculation. Confident in the power of my own intellect, I staked my fortune on the wonderful hazards of the year 1816. I doubled that fortune, treb led it, quadrupled it, and, when it had grown to be four times its original bulk, 1 staked it again. It was out of my hands, but it was invested in, as I thought, eo safe a speculation, that it was as secure as if it had never left my bankcs. The railway company of which I was a direc tor was one of the richest and most ilour idling in England. My own fortune, as I have told you, was entirely invested, and was doubling iteelf rapidly. As your uncle's trilstee, its your devoted friend, your interests were dearer fo me than my own. Why should I not speculate with your fortune, double it, and then say to you, 'See Ellinor, here are two fortunes, of whichyou are the mistress; one you owe to llenry Dalton, under the conditions of your uncle's will; the other is yours alone. You are rich. You are free, without any sacrifice, to marry the man you love; and this, Ellinor, is my work ?' This was what I ought to have said to you at the close of the great year of speculation, 1S4G." "Oh, Horace, Horace 1 I see it all. Spare yourself, spare me! Do not tell me any more." "Spare myselfl 2so Ellinor, not one pang, not one heart-break. I deserve it all. You were right in what you said in the boudoir at Sir Lionel's. The money was not ray own; no sophistry, no ingeni ous twisting of facts and forcing of con clusions.coulderer make it mine. How do I know even now that your interests was really my only motive in the 6tep I took? How do I know that it was not, indeed, the gamblers guilty madnessonly, which impelled me to my crime? How do I know? How do I know? Enough! the crash came; my fortune and yours were together engulfed in the vast destruction; and I, the trusted friend of your dead father, the conscientious lawyer, whose name had become a synonym for hon or and honesty; I.Horace WcltnoJen Mar grave, only lineal descendant of the royal ist Captain Margrave, who perished at Worcester, righting for his king and the honor of Iiia noble race; I, Ellinor, was a cheat and a swindler a dishonest and dishonorable man 1'' N "Dishonoiablc, Horace ! No, no; only mistaken." "Mistaken, Ellinor ? Yes, that is one of the words invented by dishonest men, to slur Over theirdishonesty. The fraud ulent banker in who3c ruin the fate of thousands, who have trusted him and be lieved in him, is involved, is, after all, as his friends say, only mistaken. The clerk, who robs his employer in the in sane hope of restoring what he has ab stracted, is, as Ills counsel pleads to a soft-liearted jury, with sons of their own only mistaken ! The speculator, who plays the great game of commercial haz ard with another man's money, he, too, dares to look at the world with a pitiful face, and cry 'Alas! I was only mistaken!' So, Ellinor, I have never put in that plea. From the moment of that terrible crash, which shattered my whole life in to ruin and desolation, I have, at least, tried to look mv fate in the face. But I lave not borne all my own burdens, El linor. The heaviest weight Of my crime has fallen upon the innocent shoulders of Uenrv Dalton " "Henry Dalton, my husband?' "Yes, Elliuor. your husband, Henry Dalton, the truest, noblest, most honora ble, and most conscientious of men.'' You praise him so much," she said, rather bitterly. Yes, Ellinor, I am weak enough and wicked enough to feel a cruel pain in be ing compelled to do so; it is the last poor luty I can do him. Heaven knows I have done him enough injury!" The exertion of talking for so Ions a time had completely exhausted him, and he fell back, half tainting.upon the pillows. The eister of mercy, summoned from the next apartment by Ellinor, administered a restorative to him; an J, in low, bro ken acceuts, he continued "From the moment of my ruin, Elli nor, I felt and knew that you were forever lost to me. I could bear this: I did not think my life would be a long one; it had been hitherto lit by no star of hope, shone upon bv no sunlight of love. Vxje U gilerei LH it go on its own dark way to the end. 1 say, I could bear this,but I could not bear the thought of vour contempt, your aversion; that was too bitter. I csuld not coins to you and sav, 'I love you, I have always loveJ you; I love you as 1 never before loved, as I never hopid to love: but I am a swindler and a cheat, and you can never be mine.' 2o,Ellinor,I could not do this; and yet you were on the eve of com ing of age. Sonic step must betaken, and the only thing that could save me from this alternative was the generosity of Henry Dalton. "I had heard a great deal of your uncle's adopted son, and I hai met him very often at Arden; I knew him to be as noble and true a hearted iriin as ever breathed the breath of human life. I dc termined, therefore, to throw myself upon his cencrositv. and to reveal all. .'He will despise me, but I can bear his con tempt better than the scorn of the woman 1 loved.' I said this to myself, and one night the night after Henry Dalton hai first seen you, and had been deeply fasci nated with the radiant beauty of my love ly ward, that very night after the day on which you came of age I took Henry Dalton into my chambers in Verulam Buildings, and, after binding him witli an oath of the most implicit secrecy, I told him all." "You now understand the cruel position in which Henry Dalton was placed. The fortune, which he was supposed to pos ter on marrying you, never existed. You were penniless, except, indeed, for the undred a year coming to you from your mother's property. His solemn oath for bade him to reveal this to you; and for three years he endured your contempt, and was silent. Judge now of the wrong I have done him 1 Judge now the noble heart which you have trampled upon and tortured !" "Oh, Horace, Itorace! what misery this money has brought upon us!" No, Ellinor. What misery one devia tion from the straight line of honor has brought upon us! Ellinor, dearest, only beloved, can you forgive the man who has so truly loved, yet so deeply injured you?" "Forgive you 1" She rose from her knee?, and smooth ing the thick, dark hair from his white forehead, with tender, pitying hands, look ed him full in the face. "Horace," she said, "when, long ago, you thought I loved you, you read my heart aright; but the depth and truth of that love you could never read. Now, now that I am the wife of another, anoth er to whom I owe so very much affection n reparation of the wrong I have done him, I dare tell you without a thought which is a sin against him, how much I loved jou and you ask me if I can for give 1 As freely as I would have resign ed this money for your sake, can I forgive you for the loss of it. This confession has set all rilit. I will be a good wife to Henry Dalton, and you and he may be sin cere friends yet." "What, Ellinor. do you think that, did I not know myself to be dying, I could have made this confession ? No, you see me now under the influence of stimulants which give me a false strength; of excite ment, which is strong enough to master even death. To-morrow night, Ellinor, the doctors tell me, there will no longer be in this weary world a weak, vacilla ting, dishonorable wretch called Horace Margrave." He stretched out his attcn unted hands Irew her towards him, and imprinted one Itiss upon her forehead. "The first and the last, Ellinor," he said. "Gool-by ! " His face changed to a deadlier white than before, and he fell back, fainting. The physician, peeping in at the half open door, beckoned to Ellinor: "You must leave him at once, my dear madame,'' he said. "Had I not seen the dreafully disturbed state of his mind, I should never have permitted this inter view." "Oh, monsieur, tell me, can you save him ?" "Only by a miracle, madame. A mir acle far bevond medical skill." "You yourself, then, have no hope?" "Not a shadow of hope." She bowed her head. The physician took her hand in his, and pressed it with a fatherly tenderness, looking at her ear nestly and mournfully. "Send for me to morrow," she said im ploringly. "Your presence can only endanger him, madame; but I will send you tidings of his state. Adieu !" She bent her head once more, and with out uttering another word, hurried from the rooirl. 1 li 3 following morning, as she was seated in her own apartment, she was once more summoned intd the drawing room. The sister of mercy was there, talking to her aunt. They bc'tll looked grave and thoughtful, and glanccl anxiously at El linor, as she entered the room. He is worse ?" said Ellinor to the sister, before a word had been spoken "Unhappily, yes. Madame he is "Oh, do not tell me any more! For pitys sake ! lor pity's sake 1" she exclaim cd. ''So young, so gifted, so admired; and it was in this very room we passed such happy hours together, years ago.'' She walked with tearless eyes to the window, and, leaning her head against the glais, looked down into the street be low, and out of the cheerless gray of the autumn sky. She was thinking how new and 6trangc the world looked to her now that Horace Margrave was dead! They erected a very modest tomb over the remains of Horace Margrave, in the Cemetery ol Pore la Chnine. There had been some thoughts of conveying his ashes to lii 3 native country.that they might rest in the church of Margrave, a little village in Westmoreland, the chancel of which church was decorated with a re cumbjiit statue of Algernon Margrave, cavalier, who fell at Worcester fight; hut as he, the deceased, had no nearer rela tions than a few second-cousins in the army and (he church, and a superannu ated admiral, his great uncle, and, as it was furthermore discovered that the ac complished solicitor of Verulam Build ings, Cray's Inn, had left not a penny be hind him, the idea was very quickly abandoned, and the last remains of the admired Horace were left to decay in the soil of a foreign grave. It was never fully known who caused the simple tablet, which ultimately adorned his resting-place, to be erected. It was a plain block of marble; no pom pous Latin epitaph, or long list of vir tues, was thereon cnjr.wcd but; a half- burned torch, suddenly extinguished, was sculptured at the bottom of the tab let, while, from the smoke of the torch, a butterfly mounted upwards. Above this design there was merely inscribed the name and age of the deceased. The night following the day of Horace Margrave's funeral, nenry Dalton was seated, hard at work, at his chambers in the temple. The light of the office lamp falling upon his quiet face, revealed a mournful and careworn expressions not usual to him. He looked ten years older since his marriage with Elliuor. He had fought the battle of life, and lost, lost in thatgreatbattlwhich some hold so lightly, hut which to others is an earnest fight, lost in the endeavor to win the wife he could so tenderly and truly have loved. He had now nothing left to him but his profession no other ambition no other hope. "I will work hard," he said, "that she, though separated from me forever, may still at least derive every joy, of those poor joys which money can buy, from my labor." He had heard nothing of either Hor ace Margrave's journey to Paris, his ill ness, or Iiia death. He had no hope of being ever released froin the oath which bound him to silence to silence, which he had sworn to preserve so long as Horace Margrave lived. Tired, but still persevering, and ab sorbed in a difficult case, which needed all the professional acumen of the clever young barrister, he read and wrote on, until past eleven o'clock. Just as the clocks were chiming the half hour after eleven, he heard the bell ol the outer door ring, as if pulled by an agilated hand. His chambers were on the first floor; on the floor below were those of a gentle man who always left at six o'clock. "I do not expect any one at such an hour; but it may be for me," he thought. He heard his clerk open the door, and went on writing without once lifting his head. Three minutes afterwards, the door ol his own office opened, and a person en tered unannounced. He looked up sud denly. A lady dressed in mourning, with her face entirely concealed by a thick vail, stood near the door. "Madame," he 6aid with some sur prise, "may I ask " She came hurridly from the door by which she stood, and fell on her knees at his feet, throwing up her vail as she did eo. ','Ellinor!" "Yes. I am in mourning for Horace Margrave, my unhappy guardian. He died a week ago in Paris. He told me all. Henry Dalton, my friend, my hus band, my benefactor, can you forgive me?'' He passed his hand rapidly across his eyes, and turned his face away from her. Presently he raised her in his arms, and, drawing her to his breast, said in a broken voice: "Ellinor, I have suffered so long and so bitterly, that I can scarcely bear this great emotion. My dearest, my darling, my adored and beloved wife, are, we in deed, at last set free from the terrible se cret which has had such a cruel influ ence on our lives? Horace Margrave "Is dead, Henrvl I once loved him very dearly. I freely forgive him the in jurv he did me. Tell me that you for give him, too." "From my inmost heart, Ellinor. TUB END. For the Hartford HcraU. VIEWS OF A TEACHER. As county papers are less under the control of cliques and party patronage than city papers, and derive their sup port more immediately Irom the country people, they are found to be the readiest media through which the common peo pie may give public expression to their wants or grievances, almost every trade calling or profession has its grievances real or imaginary. The learned profes sions, as they arc called, have theirs and find the public press a ready medium through which to uttcf their griefs to the world. Artisans and mechanics form combinations to redress their wrongs and their strikes find sufficient editorial vindication. The farmers under the name of "Patrons of Husbandry," find the pub lie press irrespective of party, subservi ant to their demands, and in a state o geueral rivalry to become their organs, But, there is another class so quiet and unobtrusive as to be supposed either pe culiarly favored or so dumb and stupid and assinine as to be utterly insensible to their misery; namcly.the class of Common School Teachers. There is no doubt that they are altogether too meek for thci own good, and it is reasonable to sup pose that Moses, who was the meekest man in the world, must, long before h turned his attention to law and tactics have been a school teacher and tangl the young idea how to shoot, before he became the leader ol the armiea of Israel. Men in high office, and enjoying the pe cuniary advantages of the school svsle a, eomctimcs advert to the property and need of "this poorly paid class," but very little material interest comes from their professed sympathy. The school teachers arc, indeed, an ex ample of meekness. Ignorant legisla tures make laws enabling hungry authors of books to raid on the school fund in tended only for the payment of teachers, and no audible complaint is made. Cur tailments of their respective portion of the school fund are made for that purpose and the teachers are coolly sent back to collect the deficft, if they can, off their subscribers and patrons one-half of horn perhaps are either indigent or in solvent, and bomb-proof against any at tempt to get a cent out of them, and no murmur is heard. Arbitrary laws are made creating what arc called institutes, which, from the brevity of their sessions, might be classed among the ephemera and men dubbed prolessora a title fast becoming obnoxious to every body but the owner, arc imported into the county to conduct them, in whose selection the teachers have no more voice than so many mummies, and which they are compelled to attend and foot the bill of ex penses on pain of forfeiting their certifica tes, and they come up as quietly as sheep, slaughter. And there is no doubt to the n the world that if the existenctjof that law ung on the ratification or rejection of the Common School Teachers of Ky.,they would quickly vote it into those distant regions of the nether world, where grav- tation turns the other way. It would be strange if the futilitv of those institutes were not apparent to every reflecting mind, for how can it be expected that a fews days attendance at any place of in struction will enable a person to make any improvement satisfactory to himself or visible to others? And I would sav to those young candidates for schools, who may be sanguine ol having obtained the master-key at an institute, that will un lock with ease, the hidden vaults and darkest, deepest recesses of learning, like the king's son who went to college, ex pecting to find a royal road to geometry, by which he might avoid the drudgery of ordinary study, that when the all-day work of the school room when the so lution of successive difficult problems in arithmetic, and the analysis and parsing of difficult sentences in grammcr lessons call for the utmost stretch of their knowl edge, me visionary conceits mat may now prompt them to cry "eureka," in mitation of Archimedes, "like night's swift dragons at the approach of day, will cut the clouds full fast," and leave them in. the possession of their senses. Attempts have been made to force a uniformity of text-books upon the schools, and teachers have been threatened by august county boards of education and majestic School Commissioners, with the consequences of noncompliance with their mandate in other words the for feiture of their school money. The law has been proved to be inoperative; teach ers have neglected it with impunity, and nobody has been hurt. And I would say just here, that though I consider Butler's grammeran honor to the author, I would deem the rejection of the Elementary spelling book from the schools and the introduction of Butler's, an insult to the shade of Noah Webster. The Elementa ry spelling book is the best in America. I shall conclude by saying a few words on the subject of school examiners. It is my opinion that those officers should be decapitated so suddenly as scarcely to give them time to communicate with their dearest friends. As it is the busi ness and duty of a trustee to hire a teach er lor his district, it ought to be his priv ilege to exercise his right of choice as to whom he employed, just as though he employed a man to do any other kind of work, but, it is objected, trustees are not qualified to examine teachers. I contend that a great many trustees arc qualified to examine applicants for schools, and they would do the work just as well and a great deal cheaper than those appoint ed by law. If they are not highly educa ted, they can ascertain how the appli cant has succeeded 111 lus previous schools. If the applicant is an entire stranger, as is often the case, the trustee would have to guess at his qualifications just as school examiners do under simi lar circumstances, though the examiners might form a more correct opinion with regard to the extent of his education, they would be a ignorant as the trustees with regard to his ability to conduct a school and impart instructions; an item fully as important as education. And there is another fact to be considered, that school examiners arc by 110 means perfect themselves, and would be as likely to f ill if they went before other examining boxrdt for ccrlfi:ates, as m my ordinary teachers. The truth is thev oce their ap pointment more fre'jucntly to facoritism and p trtiality thm to any obvious superiority in their qualifications. It. C.

On- render arc famil- iar with the details of the doublo homo- cide. and we will only give a brief resume of the Tacts. Doctors Peckover and Don- ally had been associated in the practice or dentistry,- but had dissolved their partner- ship. It seems that in the settlement there was some dispute which resulted in a quarrel nt the time. The next day Don- ally, on meeting Peckover, said that he (Peckover) had called him a liar the day previous, and pulling out a pistol shot liim dead. He immediately surrendered himself to the authorities and was taken to the courthouse for trial, which had just began when young Itidgely, whose eister Peckover had married walked in, and, drawing a pistol, shot Donally, killing him instantly. Ridgely wasal once taken into custodv. while" two souls appeared - ,r I before the bar of God, the murderer to meet his victim face to face. The sympathy of all went out to young Itidgely, who had always borne a charac ter irreproachable in every respect, being a member of the church and a constant attendant on services. He had served the town of Cynthiana in the capacity of Marshal, and had always given satis fa c- tion. His family were anion;: the most rejected in the countv.and the act which made him the avenger of his sister's hus , j , band wa3 not looked upon in the light of murder. Dr. Peckover was the father of five or six children, and his death depri ved them of a Drotector and sunnortcr. He had been almost a father to ItiJgely, and when the young man learned of the death of his sister's husband and his own benefactor, he did not think of the re- snonsi'nilitv now devolving unonhimtoin some way pay back in his sister's behalf tl.nt timtnes flhnwn Mm br hh sister's husband; but, frenzied, shot down him who, in wronging bis sister, wronged him. Dr. Donally was an unmarried man. The trial of Itidgely began Thursday at Cynthiana, before Judge Perkins, whose rulings are reported as able and at all limes equitable. Considerable difiicul- ty was experienced in getting jurors, it I being almost an impossibility to find any one who was not in sympathy with the act.
