Mnd Raymond sat alone in her newly furnished parlor.; The soft, mellow light of the chandelier fell upon a face, not strictly beautiful, but very pleasing in its . bright womanly loveliness; and there was a light in the large, brown eye, and a smile opon the small mouth, that drew one irresistibly towards her. Though simply dressed, it needed no tery penetrating eye to gness that the few rich ornaments, that the deli cate lily of the valley wreath, that rested amid her glossy curls, and the pretty broach that fastened ber delicate collar were all to please the gaze of a lover. A lover 1 a laggard one, certainly; for the little French clock, which stood npon the marble mantel, had already chimed, the honr of nine, and still he had not come. A flush of mingled hope and fear dyed her fair cheek, as she counted the weary mo ments. 'When will he come? she said, half aud ibly; and pressing her band upon her heart, as it to still its wild beating, she rose from her eeat, and walked the floor in agony. . Aga:n, and yet again, the little clock chimed forth the honr, ten eleven; - and, as the last silvery stroke died away, Maud, with an impatient gesture, brushed away the bitter tears that filled her eyes a cold, stern look settled upon her face; and, mnr- mnring. 'He will not be here to-night she sadly, and, with a wildly-beating heart, left the room. . AH the next day she sat, silent and atone, In her little boudoir. She could not sum mon resolution to go out; perhaps there was a faintbope in ber bosom that he might call; but, if so, she was agaio doomed to disap pointment. It was about noon, when a let- ltr was placed in her hand, directed in a familiar cbirography; it ran thus: Dear Maudi'Oaca mors, and perhaps for the last time, let me call you by that dear name: there is no harm in my doing so now, for to-morrow's snn will probably see me on my way to England. Maud, since the first lime I met you. I have loved you with my whole heart; how wildly, how passionately, you may never know; but let it pass; I must not speas ot it now. Uh, darling, forgive me for my seeming thought. lessneas; forgive me for what I am about to write. Long before I met yOu, I was betrothed. by my parents, to Clare Leslie a gentle, zirl. who loved me from childhood. We were to be married as soon i . snouia nave completed my travels, which would have been weeks since, bad I not met yon, on what I then intended should be my last day in -America.- Yonr face - attracted me charmed me, a worn an i never had before. I strove to forges it to banish it from my mindj but I could not; and I have lingered bv your side have watched the ever-varying ' expression of your dear face have drank in the mosic of your voice have told vou I loved you. ..... Last evenina, I bad just finished a note to Clara, telling her of my love for you, and was preparing to visit you, when 1 received letters, which have awakened me from my dream of bliss to the full consciousness of what I have been doing. My parents write me that Clare's health, naturally delicate, is fading fast and that it is her wish to see me, and be my wife be fore she dies. Cm I refuse that request asked ; per haps opou a bed of death and write to her that I love another? -Were 1 to do so, ere one month she would be lying in the cold grave, and I should feel that I had placed her there. .' . Oh.

When she bad ioisbed it, she sat in silence for some 'moments; and then, with a half- smothered sigh, she seated herself at her desk and wrote: ., - ,.

She did not weep; she did not faint but, invoking a blessing npon them -both, she turned away, with a sad smile, and busied herself with the mannscirpts that lay scattered upon her writing-desk. : Y CHAPTER II. : . Three years had passed away since Maud Raymond sat in her room and read tbe mar riage of Philip Vere., To her they had brought both wealth and fame; she had found pleasure in laboring for the good of others; and if she was not bappy, she . had. at least learned to be calm. - Io.tbose years she had grown more beau tiful; and among tbe many noble women who adorned the higb circle of society In which she moved the brightest ornament perhaps none were more often sought in marriage than this one loving woman. But for : all suitors she had the same firm, yet gentle no. . The world wondered; but none . knew of the throbbing heart that beat so wildly beneath the outward calmness; none read in mournful songs, tbe sorrows wrung from sad experience. And how had time dealt with Philip "Vere? To him those three years had brought much of sorrow.. Shortly after his arrival in England, his parents bad both die4. His wile be had loved not as he loved Maud but more than he had once thought possible; indeed, she was so gentle, go saint-like, that he could not have done otherwise. For one brief year she linger ed by his side, and then with his dear name upon her lips, she too, died, and they laid her to rest in the silent tomb. And did the face of Maud of loving, Maud never come to his mind in all those years? Yes. Many times and oft he had thoughtof her; sod it was ner laca mat . urew., mm, two years after the death of his wife, a second time across tbe Atlantic..'. . ; v.

They were married very quietly, fa few weeks afterwards. The world spoke of it as marriage in high -life, and praised the beauty, talent and grace of the fair- bride,' but Maud cared little for its opinion; she had now all that she had ever wished for a home with hef early love.

No one is better in formed than Mr. Seward on all matters which concern tbe Southern Confederacy. A glance at tbe fictitious report would have, satisfied him as to its nature. Further, it purports to have been intercepted by an agent of the Northern Government. If so, it wonld have come into Mr. Seward's hands first of all, and it would have been for him to have sent it to the papars if he pleased.

' ' ' The) True Political Faith. - , We have permission to publish the fol lowing extract from a recent letter of Hon. Chas. Jarvis, of Ellsworth', Maihe. Mr. Jar vis is seventy-six years of'ae. and throughout his public and private career, lengthened toward the furthest limit of hu man life, he has been universally esteemed and respected. The sound Democratic prin ciple and solid sense that he utters. Is the more impressive, coming from one whose character and advanced age, are a sufficient guaranty of his sincerity: - - fltHOPSis OF THB GBOTjNDS OF fit POLITICAL In 1776, the Thirteen British North American Colonies, each one for itself, by delegates in. Congress assembled, published their Declaration of Independence of the mother country, and announced to the world the inalienable right of every people, constituting a State,, to amend, alter, or abolish an existing, and institute a new government. V , In 1775, these same Thirteen States, in congress assembled, drew up articles of con federation, declaring them to be perpetual. submitted the same to. their respective Sta tes , which being accepted by them , j uly 1778, their delegates in congress affixed their signatures. , , In 1787, twelve of these States, Rhode Is land not present, by their delegates in con vention framed the Federal constitution, provided for its going into-operation on the assent of nine of the thirteen States, and having been ratified by eleven of them, went into operation March 4, 1789, leaving North Carolina and Rhode Island to main tain their separate nationality, or join the newly organized Government at their plea sure. Provision was made in the constitu tion for the admission of new States into the Union by congress, and also for amendments to the constitution, with consent of three fourths of the States, without regard to population, then to ba binding tin the other fourth of the States. The citizens of each State, constituted the State; the constitution amendable at the ' will of a majority of the citizens; the State governments are constitutional repre sentative democracies; all legislative power not prohibited by the constitution was vest in the Legislature. The Federal Government was constituted by' the States. "" The powers granted by the States specifically enumerated in the consti tution, and the exercise of any" power not granted was prohibited. The legislative powers were vested in congress and specifi cally enumerated. The difference between the legislative powers granted to congress and to a'State Legislature, is the difference between a special and a general power of attorney the one conferring powers enu merated, the other all powers not prohibit ed. The States, not the people, are tbe constituents of the Federal Government; and the constitution may be amended by three-fourths of the States who may not comprise a majority of the citizens. 'It was proposed, in tbe convention that framed the constitution, that congress should have the power of coercing a refractory Stale; the motion was opposed by the most distinguished men in' the convention, was not pressed to a vote, or withdrawn by the mover. Had the power of coercing a State been conferred oo congress, the States would not have ratified the constitution. '. The power of annulling a State law con travening the constitution or a law of the United States was proposed to be invested in two-thirds of congress. This proposition, though advocated by James Madison and others of like standing, was rejected; but if this power had been granted, it wouli bave prevented the passage of tbe so called Lib erty bills by eleven States of the Unfcm in direct violation of their constitutional obli gations, 'and tbe Union would have been preserved. (? " The pre&ent war is not only a crime,' but a stupendous blunder disgraceful to the in telligence of the age; for common sense recognizes and history bears .witness to the fact that confederacies of States ate rnptured, but cannot be sustained by a resort, to' arms. i he war now devastating what was our country is not a rebellion, but a war between States independent of each other, excepting so far as tbey were bound by Federal rela tions; for there can be no rebellion in a gov ernment constituted by-States unless it is against State as well as against Federal au thority. . ; Tbe doctrine of the irrepressible conflict originated by Lincoln.re-echoed by Seward, recognized by the free States, in addition to tbe Fugitive Slave bills.bave afforded to the Southern States more ample cause for dis solving their connection with the Eastern Western and Northern States - than the British North American Colonies could allege for dissolving their connection with the mother country. . , - - , This war of rapine and murder Is a war of self-defense on the Dart of the South, of aggression on the part of the North; for the south tbere is now no other alternative, than to fight until their independence' is ac knowledged, or submission as conquered provinces thus the war will continue until the North recovers its reason, or ia exhaust ed of men and bankrupt in credit. When tbns exhausted, the war ' will terminate. The States will then resume the powers delegated to constitute the federal Govern mentand that Government will share the fate of the Confederation of 1778, having no assets to discharge its contracts? and no heirs that will feel bound to assume them. Aiincr confederacies will then be organized at the will of the.respective States, which' will go into operation with knowledge-of . the powers and capabilities' of Federal Bepnb them, by tbe untimely r. t- .v.,-- nrAlacessor: and thus under 0 V9 tU.ll f . . ;c;n.t MreromiiiU. friends", in peace, .tr; against the banded despotisms of Europe, will perform the ustfesioo from on High,' the political regeneration oi tbe vrorld.Dot by war and bloodshed, but by the benign influence oi tnetr example.'
