^THE/GAZETTE.
SATURDAY MORNING, SEPT'R. ^ D**
SPANISH COUKTS1UP.
A youDg man eutcred the diligence which
was to take him in the entire interiur. On
starting, ho found only one companion, a |
young lady, strangely traveling alone; her
figure was all it should be, but a inautilla
covered her face. Consequently, to use the
words of a novelist, “A strange stusatiou
suddenly took possession ot him—-love enter- |
ed his soul.” After some small civilitiea^ he i
proceeded to take her hand, which she with
drew, while she glared at him with two dark
eyes through the lace that enveloped her.
Again he took her hand; he kissed it, and
feeling pertecily secure trom intrusion, he in
sisted on her removing her veil. With this
request, after some resistance, she complied,
and her features fully answering 11 his ex
pectations, he might have assured her ot his
approval; but, as Segovia is approaching, he
is compelled to leave her; before doing so,
however, the you*h pressed her to tell him
where she lived, and as she leaves the dili
gence she gives him her address and name.
An hour had scarcely elapsed when be has
tens to the house, which stands alone; evident
ly but one family occupies it. lie asks for
l>onna Eugenia and is ushered into a room
lurnished with unusual comfort, lhe lady
he seeks is sitting alone. 5>he beckons bim
with a gesture to be seated. Within doors,
his impertinence has quit© deserted him, and
having humbly obeyed her, she thus addressed
him :
“Senor Caballero,” she said, “this morn
ing a woman, a widow, and unprotected, was
forced by affairs to leave Madrid, ller dueuua
at the last momeut was takeu ill; her aiiairs
at Segovia could not bear postponement, s it
trusted to the gallautry of a Spaniard to pro
tect her on her road; and how her hopes were
realised you can ifdoriu her. Rut think not
she who could not deieud iier»el* troui iu
sult, cannot take vengeance;’ and drawing a
pistol she presented it to his iorehead, and
continued, “Make your peace with heuveu,
for the earth you see no more.” .
lie does not tremble, though he sees it is
no jest; his brow quails not, and the emotiou
that causes his voice to quiver is not that ot
fear, lie looks the lady in the face; “W ouldst
thou kill me beeauso 1 love thee so much ?
His eye, his voice aud courage achieved
the conquest he bad commenced in the coach,
and casting aside the deadly weapon, she
told him she had but tried his love which she
was now convinced was equal to his pluck.
It appeared she was the y ung widow ot a
late Cuban merchant, old, cross, ugly, and
cowardly; her married life had beeu but
short; and in espousing the young lieutenaut
she endowed him with the wealth she gained
from her first husband.
The couple are high in the estimation of
Madrid; the husband is a senator, the wife a
lady of fashion; but whether the tragic scene
has ever again been enacted by them the nar
rator could not inform me.
PROTECTION FROM LIGHTNING.
The New York Journal of Commerce con
tains a communication from Mr. John F. Col
lins upon the subject of casualties by light
ning, arguing to show that barns in or near
w hich manure heaps, or newly gathered crops,
are fermenting, are much more frequently
struck by lightningthan are al! other buildmgs
put together. As a protection to houses, it has
been recommended that they be ventilated be
fore and closed during a tempest, that light
ning might not be attracted by the ascending
vapor. That vapor ascending by day, ami
not by night, rendering buildings safer du- ,
ring a tempest by night than by day. The
writer sajs that of eight or ten casualties
by ligbtuing, in New York and thcadjoiuing
towns, all have have occurred iu the day
time, and all, with one exception, have been
barns with manure heaps leruieuting near
them, and in w hich several horses have been
killed, standing of course near those manure
heaps. The excepted buildiug was a saw
mill, beside which lay fermenting sawdust
and chip duug of years' accumulation, and
some of recent origin, and upou which rub
bish was piled to near half the height of the
buildiug. The lightning struck opposite
the rubbish, and a large portiou paosed out
near it.
The attention of farmers and others should
he directed to this subject, in order that the
facts may be collected upon which as ife con
clusion may be founded. The suggestion of
the eorre8ponuent is of serious importance,
involving as it does, the safety of a large a
inonnt of property. __
