And then, finding he did not return, they all
came back, and fought and raved round the
open space, and tore down the leaves, and met
in the middle, and seemed to die away for an
instant as they ascended into the high ether.
The horse now became so utterly unmanage
able, that Gregory descended from his saddle
and tied him to the finger-post.
Just as he did so he became conscious that
gome one was standing beside him, and glanc
ing round, he saw a little old man.
Although somewhat unnerved by the appari
tion, who seemed to have come from nowhere,
he said in a firm voice:
<£ Sir, the storm has rendered my horse so
unmanageable that I can proceed no further
with him. Is there shelter near ?”
The old man laughed drily.
“I.am standing,” he said, “ opposite the door
Of my house, ana you ask me whether there is
shelter near! Come with me, and welcome,”
he added, pointing in the direction which Bran
don had just taken.
“Merciful heavens!” muttered the colonel,
•‘■ffhere. was no house there a moment ago!”
As he said these words to himself, a chill
seemed to invade his heart—a dizziness came
over him, and he fell fainting to the ground.
When he recovered, he was seated in a large
chair by a blazing fire, andby his side stood—
Charles Stuart!
We must now return for a while to Lady Eve
line Courtney.
Her life at Glenoland was, as may be im
agined, not one which could in any way com
pensate her for the heart’s misery which she
Her sister, who mourned little truly for the
loss of her husband, left her more to herself,
and having heard of the death of Lord Rokeby,
was not now, of course, pestering her continu
ally with the necessity of immediate marriage.
The Hcathcotes, mother and daughter, were
untiring in their kindness; and Sir Arthur was
more than untiring.
Ho was devoted and indefatigable.
Yet, for some time, he saw that his cause was <
perfectly without hope. <
Lady Eveline, imagining Brandon to bo faith
less-imagining him to be implacable in his ■
hatred of nor supposed treachery—had a load
upon her heart which induced a constant mel
ancholy, and which no kindness could remove. ;
Bnt at length arrived a letter, which, while it
struck a chill to her heart, and carried with it, ■
as it were, all hope of happiness forever, i
brought renewed life and vitality to him.
It was a letter dated from Lincoln, and was '
from a friend of Sir Arthur Heathcote’s.
It ran thus:
“My Dear Heathcote: A great battle has just been <
fought near Early. It has Quito washed away the stain
witn which the battle of Lincoln had soiled tne Royal
arms. The Roundheads have been defeated, with tre
mendous loss, and are in toll retreat toward London. <
Among those killed are General Murray and Colonel (
Brandon, the celebrated Captain of the Hundred Guards.’
This lost, who was one of Cromwell’s bravest and clev- ■
erest soldiers, is a great loss to them. On our side '
we have to deplore the lcßs>of many brave men; but i
1 am glad to be able to inform you tnat Lord Rokeby.
who wa» left lor dead on the field at Lincoln, has quite
recovered, and will shortly be with you. Trusting that /, f
too, may see you soon, 1 remain, Y ours, forever, i
“ Charles St. Leonards.”
Gently, very gently, Sir Arthur Heathcote i
broke the news to Lady Eveline.
Then, for a week, he suffered her to remain e
without one word of inducement from his lips
to listen to his suit.
At the end of that time, however, he entered
the gardens where he had seen her walking
He had an open letter in his hand.
“Lady Eveline,” he said, “so soon after the*
melancholy news which I brought you, I am c
compelled to ask your forgiveness for speaking g
to you of my love. But circumstances compel 1
me to be precipitate. I have here a letter from
Lord Rokeby, which announces his arrival here t
to-morrow.” a
Lady Eveline turned even paler than usual. t
“ Ah! you may well turn pale,” cried Sir Ar- t
thur; “ tnis bold, unscrupulous man is capable e
of anything. But permit me to think 1 have
reason to battle with him. Give me a right to
thwart and defeat him. Brandon is dead—your 1
sister will now once more commence her perse
cutions. Say, at least, that if Brandon is really l
dead, you will, within a year from this time, t
become my wife. Oh, Eveline I” he cried, pas- y
sionately, as he raised her hand to his lips and
kissed it, “ believe me, you will nowhere find »
one who more fervently and honestly loves you t
than Zdo.”
The noble, handsome face of Sir Arthur
Heathcote glowed with reaih intense feeling as i
he spoke.
She knew well that she was addressing an
honorable man, and she smiled teanully as she
her hand again in his. c
“Sir Arthur,” she said, “believe me that
.this man is so hateful to me, that I would y
rather die than become his wife. Therefore, i
. Sir Arthur, for my own protection, I will make
you this promise—that if Brandon is really 1
dead, I will marry you in a year’s time.” t
“Heaven Triess you, dearest Eveline!” he 1
cried, rapturously snatching from her ruby lips
• the first kiss.
“ Stay,” said Eveline, blushing deeply. “ You r
must remember, Sir Arthur, tha*t in marrying g
me you will marry a woman without a heart; E
you will marry one who, for nearly twenty
years, has worshiped the image of one who was j
lost to her—who cannot drive the image even
now from* her heart, and who only consents to i
the promise you exact because she desires to a
have one who can protect her from the perse- i
cutions of her sister.”
“I am content to accept you on your own i
terms,” said Sir Arthur ; “ all I desire is, that t
you will become my wife. When I am your j
husband, my patient love and devotion will in j
time produce in your heart a warmer feeling.”
“And yet even now, Sir Arthur,” she said, <
“ I hope that Gregory Brandon is not dead. In
my heart oi hearts, I have an instinctive ex
pectation that I shall see him again.” ?
“ I cannot, after your promise, find it in my
heart to say I hope so too,” returned Sir Ar- i
thur. “ Indeed wore Ito foster such an idea ‘
in your heart, I should be doing wrong, as i
there is, in my mind, ho doubt that lie is J
dead.” ’
On the next morning, Lord Rokeby arrived at *
Glenoland. ■,
Lady Eveline, saw him enter the courtyard, ’ j
and expected at once to be sent for.
But she was not. j
In fact, Lady Catherine had now very differ- ]
ent ideas about the affair. ]
Rokeby, however, had not forgotten the 1
pretty Eveline, and after the first introductions
rendei cd necessary by courtesy were over, he 1
asked for a private interview with Lady Cath
erine. (
She received him with
“lam so glad—so very glad you have come, ]
Rokeby,” she said ; “ the news of your death -
took from me all my strength—overwhelmed ]
me, in fact; although I could scarcely find it in <
my heart to believe it.”
“It was that villain Brandon that well-nigh j
destroyed me!” cried he. “But it is he, not
1, that has met with death I”
“Is he really dead?”
“ Yes ; I have every hope that he is, and that ■
thus the last obstacle to my marriage with <
Eveline is swept away. Where is she? She is, i
I was told, in this castle.”
“ She is. You shall see her presently,” re- :
turned Lady Catherine, impatiently. “Did •
you hear of my husband s death ?”
“ Yes. He was killed at Oldham.”
“He was—by Brandon.”
“This man seems to be the enemy of all of
us,” said Rokeby. “He pursues us" with un
dying hatred.”
There was a pause for a few moments.
Then ho said again :
“ Can I not now see Eveline ?”
Lady Catherine turned deadly pale.
“Is it possible, Rokeby,” she st*id, in a faint
voice, “ that time has so changed your
heart ?”
He started and flushed crimson.
“My heart has not changed!” he cried. “ I
love where taught me to love ! Eveline is
the one whom you yourself introduced to me,
and since that time I have never ceased to
love her.”
“ And yet, before her, you loved another.”
“Yes, Catherine, I loved you; but you mar
ried another, and placed an insuperable bar
rier in my path.”
“But my husband is dead—the obstacle is
removed. Did you not swear to me that you
would not wed my sister had I been free to bo
your wife?”
“ 1 said so ; but that was many, many years
ago. You have been for twenty years a wife.
I would not marry one who had lived for nearly
a quarter of a oentury with another man.”
Lady Catherine turned her head away to hide
the baleful light that gleamed up into her eyes.
“These are hard words to hear from you,
Gerard Rokeby,” she said, as she again glanced
toward him. “ I had thought that, now my
husband was dead, your mind might have re
verted to those old days when we wore young
together. I had no conception that my "sister
Eveline had taken so firm a hold on your
“Madam,” said Rokeby, respectfully, “if I
have offended you, I deeply regret it. But you
yourself have taught me so to love Eveline,
tbit she alone is now mistress of my affection.”
“I regret that, for your sake,” returned
Lady Catherine, with sarcastic triumph ; “ for,
now that Brandon is dead, she has found for
herself another husband.”
Rokeby smiled.
“Nay, then,” he said, “you cannot expect
me to believe that. She was too devotedly at
tached to him ever to be capable of feeling af
fection for another man.”
“ There you are wrong,” returned Lady Cath
erine ; “for, yesterday, she engaged herself to
Sir Arthur Heathcote—to be married to him in
a year, provided the death of Gregory Brandon
was really proved.”
Rokeby flushed angrily.
“ This is too bad,” he said; “ this cannot be.
Sir Arthur is my friend, and knows well my
love for Eveline. It is a wrongful and a cow
ar div act!”
“ Not so,” cried Lady Catherine, with a smile
Of pleasure. “ All is fair in love and war.”
Again and again, during that day, Lord
Rokeby endeavored to obtain an introduction
to Lady Eveline.
But in vain.
She determinedly refused, and at length re
turned an answer to the effect that she should
keep her room during the time that Lord
Rokeby remained «t Glenoland.
Jhis ao exasperated Rokeby, that be quitted
the house suddenly without any explanation,
and without so much as bidding •adieu to Lady
Another week passed.
At the end of this time, two letters arrived—
one for Lady Catherine, and the other for Sir
Arthur Heathcote.
The letter, which was the same in sub
stance as that to Eveline’s sister, ran as fol
lows :
“Sir Arthur: During my vary short stay at Gleno
land, I learned that you had behaved toward mo in a
manner unbecoming in any one who protended to the
character of a gentleman. I learned that—knowing well
that I had aspired to the hand of Lady Eveline Courtney
—you had addressed your suit to her,and obtained from
her a promise to marry you within a year if Colonel
Brandon, her former lover, was in the meantime proved
to be dead. Triumph in your treachery no more, how
ever: Colonel Brandon was not killed at the battle of
Early. No such battle has taken place. When last
heal’d of. Colonel Brandon had started from London
with dispal ches for Cromwell. Therefore, though he is
still an obstacle in my path, he is also one in yours !
“Gerard Rokeby.”
The contents of these letters were not im
pacted to Eveline either by her sister or by Sir
Both, indeed, regarded it simply as a ruse on
the part of Rokeby to delay any prepara
tions for a marriage between Eveline and Sir
Three datys after, however, one of the ser
vants slipped into Eveline’s hand a note, which
ran as follows:
“My Dearest Eveline: Yen have been deceived
by your sister and your friends. You have never been
ray prisoner, or you would by this time have been my
wife. I long to see you again. After ail these years,
think how I pant to speak to you, and fold yon once mere
in my arms. The man who brings you thie will be wait
ing to-morrow night at the little gate at the end of the
grounds. He will have a carriage waiting, which will
bring you on to London, whero I am. Be at the gate at
eight o’clock. Till I see you, believe me your own
“ Gregory Brandon.”
It may be imagined with what a beating
heart Lady Eveline Courtney read and re-read
this epistle; and easily imaginable also is it
how slowly the time passed.
But the hour at length came.
Everything seemed to favor her purpose.
The family retired to rest early; Sir Arthur
was from home; her sister was writing in* her
own room.
At half-past the appointed hour she had suc
cessfully passed through the house and gar
dens, and was at the gate.
There stood a carriage, and there a tall man,
enveloped in a cloak.
The night was so very gloomy, that it had
favored her purpose; but it prevented her,
also, from seeing the features of the stranger.
“Ha! is it you, Lady Eveline?” said he, m a
voice which was so low and muffled as to be
“Yes, it is I—Lady Courtney,” she answered.
“Are you ready to start?”
“At once, my lady.”
As he spoke,"hs approached the carriage and
onened the door.
jNot without soma misgiving, she entered.
Tho stranger gave the wore! “'co London” to
the coachman, and when he had entered, the
carriage drove off at a rapid pace.
Until they were far beyond the precincts of
the castle,"Eveline’s companion spoke not a
When, however, they were out on the dark
and lonely highway, he slid his arm round her
waist, and pressed her ardently to him.
“I have you at last, Eveline!” said he, tri
Well might Eveline shudder, and turn chill
at heart 1
The voice that spoke was that of Lord Rokeby!
Faint as Gregory Brandon was, from the ex
citement which had caused him to lose his
senses, he yet sprang up and put his hand to
his sword.
His first idea, of course, was, that the dis
patches he had brought from Lord Kimbolton,
and those, too, which he had, with so much
trouble, obtained from Malcolm, had been
taken from him; but, on thrusting his hand
eagerly into his pocket, he found that they
were still safe.
“ Into what trap have I fallen ?” cried he, as
he approached the door.
“Into no trap,” said tho king. “Accident
brought you to "this place, where I am waiting
to receive a friend. But who you arc, and
whom you fear, I know not.”
“ He" knows me not,” thought Brandon.
“ This is well. I well treachery by
Then he said aloud :
“lam traveling to the camp. The password
is ‘ Henriette.’ ”
“ Do you bring dispatches ?”
“ No; lamon my way to join.”
“Good!” said the king; “we have need of
good and brave soldiers.”
The old man now entered the room with some
wine, with which both Brandon and the king
refreshed themselves.
The king was silent for some time after this,
listening, as it seemed, to the wild ragings of
the storm, which were now, however, becoming
less and less.
Suddenly he turned to Brandon.
“Tell Itupert, if you see him, that, to-mor
row night, 1 be with him, with eight thou
sand Dutch troops. The queen will bo here to
“ There are hopes of victory, then, your Ma
“Yes, great hopes. -Our men were disorgan
ized and demoralized at Lincoln. Wo have
veterans now, and the Marquis of Newcastle
will be with me to-morrow.”
“ Good!” said Brandon, rising and approach
ing tho door once more. “ I will tell my men
to be of good cheer. But I must to the camp
now. Here, old man,” he added, turning to
him whom he had taken for an apparition,
“ here is gold for you. Is my horse with
out ?”
“ It is, sir, at the door.”
Tho horse was there, as.stated, and Brandon
vaulted on his back.
Then, turning to the king, who approached
the door to look upon the night, he said :
“ Charles Stuart, you know me not. I will tell
you. A week since, a messenger left London
on horseback, bound for the royal camp. In
his saddle he had stitched a letter which you
sent from Lincoln to Lord Kinsale, fancying he
was in London. Lord Kinsale, however, being
in the royal army, before York, this messenger
was bringing the letter back, northward. On
his way he met me, and I took this letter from
him, with other dispatches. Before to-morrow
morning, these dispatches, and this letter, will
be in the hands of Oliver Cromwell.”
“Villain!” cried the king, drawing a pistol;
“who are you who dares to address me thus?”
“Stay!” said Brandon; “put up your weap
on ; for when you know me you will understand
that, until tlie end is accomplished, human
hands are powerless to harm me. lam one
you know well—the man you betrayed—the Si
lent Prisoner of the Tower—Gregory Bran
Then, putting spurs to his horse, he was off
like a flash of light.
The king was powerless to fire.
Again before his eyes came tho dread vision
he had beheld in his palace. Again he knelt
with his head upon tho block. Again the exe
cutioner stood over him with tho terrible in
strument of death.
Covering his face with his hands, he staggered
into the room, and sank down into a chair by
the fire.
“Your majesty, rouse yourself!” said the old
man, soothingly; “they are coming. Hear you
not the muffled arums ?”
“Muffled drums!” cried the king, glancing
at him in terror. “ Who are coming ? What
emblem of death is this ?’’
“ Emblem of safety, your majesty!” said the
old man. “It is the sign that the queen and
the Dutch are coming.”
“True—true!” said Charles Stuart, rising
and pacing the room. “ I must not meet her
with such disorder on my mind as this. Go to
the door, Chalmers, and see if you can hear or
see anything.”
When the man went to perform his bidding,
Charles, usually the most temperate of princes,
emptied the remainder of the wine-bottle into
a large glass, and drank it at a draught.
In a few minutes, the low beating ot drums
and the tramp of men could plainly be heard at
intervals between the sighmgs of the departing
Presently, tho rolling of carriage-wheels was
distinguishable, and, in a very short space of
time, the tall, graceful figure of Henrietta Ma
na, the queen, entered the room.
“Leave us alone, Chalmers,” said Charles
Then, taking Henrietta by the hand, he led
her to a seat by the fire, and sat down by her
“ Dear Mary!” he said, kissing her affection
ately, and speaking in a voice full of emotion;
“ dear Mary, the sight of your face is a happi
ness to me which I can scarcely express. In all
these troublous times—in all my trials—the
greatest of all to me is my compulsory absence
from you and my dear children.”
“ Poor Charles F” cried Henrietta, leaning her
head on his shoulder, and lovingly winding her
arms round his neck; “ poor Charles! these
are, indeed, terrible days for us ; but the
sunshine, I hope, will soon break through the
“Alas! no, Mary!” he said. “I see little
hope before me. I fear that tho clouds are
so thick that no sun will ever pierce them.
Listen, while I tell you how, anil by whom, I
have been betrayed this night!”
She listened eagerly as he narrated the cir
cumstances which had attended Brandon’s
“And, by this time, perhaps,” he added,
“ Cromwell is in possession of my most secret
letters—letters which will make him and others
my most deadly and inveterate enemies.”
“But why did you not kill him?” cried the
queen, in alarm. “ Surely this man’s life could
well be spared, to save thousands of others ?”
“ True! But I had no time I He fled from
me, and disappeared in an instant. Had I
r even had time to fire at him, it would have been
• useless. He is invulnerable.”
“ What mean you, Charles ?” said the queen,
) shuddering, she knew not why, at the gloomy
words of the king.
1 “ I will tell you,” returned Charles. “Through
i all these years I have never revealed to you
one word as to the strange and terrible spectre
that haunts me everywhere.”
Whisperingly—hardly allowing his voice tc
1 rise above the lowest murmur—as if, indeed.
1 he was fearful to listen to his own words, he
Itoid her of the fearful sceue VyA«.wA rnU ei'U
gad, anon to tala mind*
The queen listened in terror, clinging to him
as he proceeded wondering, yet fearing, as it
were, to seek a solution of the mystery.
“ What think you of it, Mary ?” asked the
king, gazing into her eyes as if to see if,
through kindness, she would deceive him.
“I think that it is some invention of the
devil to lead us on to destruction,” she an
swered, hurriedly. “Long since, you ridiculed
me, Charles, for my superstitious fears, and
for my belief in prophecy. Now, see you, you
are touched with them yourself.”
“Ah, sweet Mary!” said the king; “this
terror of mine is of a far different kind. It is
no terror created by my seeking into the future;
it is a phantom which has risen voluntarily, as
it were, to crush and defy me. No one but my
self has seen it, or knows of it, save one man.”
“And that man?”
“ Is Gregory Brandon himself.”
The queen smiled.
“ I see through this now, dear Charles,” she
cried. “By some jugglery or another, thjs
man has obtained an influence over you. It is
mere trickery, believe me ; or, if you will not
believe me, come with me as we pass toward
Long Reach, to the weird woman who lives at
Early, and she will tell you that I am right.”
Tho king shook his head.
“No, no, Mary I” he said; “no sorceress for
me. Once only* have I ever been induced to
seek in tho future; and that one attempt has
been enough for me. I will go to no witches.
Tell me, dear heart, how many men have you
from Holland ?”
“ Six thousand.”
“ Two thousand less than I hoped for, Mary.
But have you good guns and ammunition ?”
“ Yes ; 1 hav.e many guns, and an abundance
of ammunition. When do you march? My sol
diers are fresh and eager for tho fight. We had
best descend upon the forces of the Parliament
while we are ready.”
The king smiled.
“ You must not come with me,” he said;
“you must away again to Holland for fresh
succors. Beside, I could not have you run the
risk of a battle. The war is so various now,
that never can we for a moment tell which way
may be the issue of the fight. Here, Mary, we
must separate—l to battle, you to return

The queen for some time gently resisted her
husband’s wish to send her from, England,
At length she yielded.
At early morn, the old man knocked at their
chamber, to tell them it was time to part.
A light breakfast was taken ; the queen intro
duced the king to the Dutch auxiliaries, and
the whole army was ready to march.
Then, in the presence of all the troops, the
king and queen took an affectionate leave of one

The army had just started on its march, when
a man was seen riding hard from the north.
He made his way direct to the royal staff,
after giving the password,, and presented a let- :
ter to the king.
“From Prince Rupert. <tc., Ac.
“ May It Please Your Majesty: The army of Parlia
ment, under Oliver Cromwell, aie besieging York. The
Marquis of Newcastle is with ms. If your Maiesty will ,
bring up your forces to aid me, we can raise the siege
and take the rebels at a disadvantage at Maraton Moor.’’ 1
The king thought a moment.
“ Yes,” lie said, at length, turning to one of
the officers who were beside-him ; “Rupert is
sure to know what he is about.. We will march
on York ; and if Heaven will but lend, us aid,
wo will haf/e vengeance on these villains on the
field of Marston Moor”
On quitting the presence of the king,.Greg
ory Brandon made at once for Cromwell’s
camp, and on reaching it, was admitted imme
diately to the presence of the future Lord Pro
tector of England.
Oliver Cromwell’s face brightened at once
upon seeing him.
“ Ha, Brandon,” he exclaimed, holding out
to him his hand. “ You are arrived safe; and ,
quickly, too.”
“Not for lack of adventures,” returned the
“Ah, truly?”'
“Yes; I had no sooner arrived in London
than my life was attempted by one of my ;
troopers, who has deserted, from my company.
I escaped him, received from Lord Kimbolton
my dispatches, and at once started on my re
turn journey. I received information before 1 ,
started that a Royal messenger was on his way
to the north with"a letter to Lord Kinsale, be"-
side dispatches of information. This letter
and the dispatches I took from him, and they •
arc here.”
So saying, he- handed, the packet ta Crom
“ You are invaluable,, colonel,” cried Oliver,
smiling. “ With such energies and such cour
age as you possess, you ought to rise to any
position in the State.”
He opened first the letter to Lord Kinsale
and read it.
As he did so, he paced the room, as was his
custom ; and Brandon saw that his face flushed
and paled, and his brows wore knit together
Well they might. Well might his counte
nance change and his heart leap.
The letter ran thus :
“My Dear Kinsale: I am told by my friends here
that the man Oliver UromweH will get us peace if we
make him a prince of the blood, .end pardon all political
oli'euders.. Since peace is now desirable tor evtiyone,
promi.be him anyiaing in my name. When we are at
peace, we can give him a halter-instead or a coronet.
“Charles Rex.”
“So ho!” cried Cromwell, turning deadly :
pale. “You are wrong, Charles Stuart. It is 1
yon who shall have the halter, not I.” ;
Hardly had he uttered these words, when a
soldier entered the camp with a letter.
It was a hastily written, scrawl.
“ A h!” said Cromwell. “ Rupert is marching
with the Duke of Newcastle to raise tho siege *
of York. A messenger has been dispatched to 1
the king, to beg him to join his forces to theirs, ’
and strike a crushing blow upon us. God! if -
treachery is punished by Heaven’s wrath, then
it is not our army that will bo crushed, but -
yours, Charles Stuart. We arc equally matched
now. Since both of us aro promised the scaf
fold t we must see who will arrive there first.”
Ho kept talking to himself thus for some
time—pacing the room, meanwhile, and tap
ping Ins leathern hose angrily with his heavy
riding-whip, his face still ghastly pale, and his <
whole manner expressing, his indignation at the <
king’s treacherous letter.
Then, without noticing Colonel Brandon, he
broke open the other dispatches.
“ More treachery—more treachery!” he cried.
“ What’s this that Lord Howard says to Ru
pert? ‘The king says we must amuse the
country with liberal promises. If this can be
done with tho army, do? so ; as forces will then
arrive from France and Holland, and we can
crush these rebel villains.’ Ha ! truly a pretty

there, until ho came to-his own dispatches from.
Lord Kimbolton.
In a moment, his manner changed.
“Ahl” he cried; “this is good!: ‘The
Parliament approve all your acts, and name
you Oommander-in-Chief of your forces.. They
confirm your appointment of the brave soldier,
Brandon (hear this, Brandon!.), to the colonel
cy of tho Ironsides. Press onward, and. fear
no lack of money or mon. By the time you
receive this, ten thousand more men will be- on
their way to join you. It is suspected that the
Dutch auxiliaries have landed; but the- report
is unconfirmed. The course of the campaign
they leave entirely in your hands.’ ”
He flung tho paper down on the table exci
tedly, and walked to and fro again, rubbing his
hands. ■
“ The good news, colonel, overwhelms the
bad, does it not?” he cried. “Ifear no longer
the treachery of Charles Stuart, if I have the
command of the army against him.”
“No, truly,” said Brandon; “except there
are traitors among us also who will ferment
jealousy against you.”
“Let them be jealous—let them bo jealous!”
cried Cromwell. “I care not for it. They
jeered mein the Council—they were compelled
to respect me in the field. And now,” he ad-
• ded, raising his hand toward heaven, while a
L shadow of solemn religion fell over his fea
i tures—“ and now, with tho Lord’s help, I will

archy altogether from the earth I”
• “Amen!” said Brandon.
As he spoke the words, the Earl of Essex
j entered the large tent, followed by several
> officers.
> The earl was a man of middle age, tall, and
elegantly dressed, for he had not discarded the
> dashing style of the cavalier nobles.
> Indeed, he was no Roundhead.
. Not wishing monarchy to be absolutely driv
[ cn out from tne land, he was eager to see its
privileges abridged, and was ready rather to
- behold the Crown in peril than the liberty of
3 the English people.
“ Ah! my Lord of Essex!” cried Cromwell ;
, “ you come truly in good time. Read this let
t ter to Lord Kinsale, and tell me then your
3 opinion of this man who calls himself by di
vine right King of England.”
0 The Earl of Essex read the letter, and an
1 angry frown gathered over his brow.
“If there were anything required to make
i me despise royalty, it would be "this,” he said.
I “ This is sufficient, well proclaimed, to take
a from him his followers—to make his enemies
despise him—to stamp him on the page of his
i, country’s history as a traitor and a coward.”
y “ You are of my way of thinking, my lord,”
said Cromwell. “ And now, since I have shown
h you that, let me tell you that Prince Rupert
u and tho Marquis of Manchester have marched
e toward York to raise the siege ; that tho king
is on his way to meet them, and that they in
,o tend to engage our forces on Marston Moor.
1, We shall have our work before us; but the
ie Parliament informs me that ten thousand men
IX axe ou the road to join us.”
44 Good stud i I fear we are
much at a loss. There is here no chief com
mander. I certainly command half the troops
here, but Lord Kinnaird, who was our chief, is
dead, and no successor has been appointed.”
“ My lord,” said Oliver Cromwell, handing to
him Lord Kimbolton’s let oaf, “my lord, lam
glad you have spoken of this subject, since it
saves me from acting in a manner which might
be deemed presumptuous. Tho Parliament,
you see, have named me Commander-in-Chief
of the Army of the North.”
Essex bit his lip as ho read, and tho other
officers exchanged significant glances.
But there was no dissatisfaction expressed.
It was rather that they had now seen the con
firmation of long-cherished suspicions.
“Well, general,” said Lord Essex, holding
out his hand to Cromwell, “ all that remains is
to congratulate you upon a position won bravely
and honorably by the sword, and then to ask
you in what particular manner each of us can
aid you in destroying the last hopes of our
common enemy.”
With the accomplishment of his present
hopes melted away all Cromwell’s anger and
He was a new man.
He gave orders calmly, and to the purpose.
The whole outline of the march and tne bat
tle were sketched at once.
Before starting, each officer know well what
particular position to take up.
The night was dark and dreary when the
royal army took up its position on Marston
The cannons had now ceased to thunder
against the walls of York.
The republican army—for such we may now
truly call the grand legions commanded by
Cromwell—turned its back upon the city, and 1
rolled back toward the heath.
On tho one side, bands of br&vo but infatu
ated. men were eager for a fray in which they
would gain nothing, and in which they would
defend no'thing but a name and an idea.
On the other side, men equally brave, but
more determined, because they had a tangible
cause to combat for, were ready to lay down
their lives that their fathers and their brothers
might exist in peace; that they might behold
the end of bloouy executions; that they might
wrest from the hands of presumptuous kings
the right of living on. and exulting in, the fears
and weaknesses of mankind; that they might
see freedom and justice and religious tolerance
established throughout the length and breadth
of the land. '
The morning broke with a strange chilliness,
but it damped the spirits of no one.
The two armies,, to the number of fifty thou- :
sand, drew up on the dusky moor, and as the 1
hazy steams of the early Spring morning rolled :
away toward the city, they began to advance 1
upon one another steadily..
Rupert, who commanded the right wing of
tho Royalists, and was at tho headof a splendid 1
troop of picked men, was opposed by Oliver
Cromwell and Brandon, who, with their Iron
sides, boro down everything before-them.
Rupert and his men.were the first to fly from
the field.
Cromweil, forgetful of. his position as a com
mander, followed with his men, and turned
their flight into a disastrous rout.
Then, when he had. followed them far enough,
he returned to attack the artillery—to obtain a
second victory—to drive the men from their
guns—to seize the entire park, .and*turn their
muzzles against his foes.
Then the general rout began.
Here and there on the field small bodies of
mon fought with desperate, valor..
But it was all in vain..
The king’s cause had suffered a-crushing
No impetuous valor—no -Dutch courage—was <
sufficient to stem the tide of victory which, had
set in with Cromwell’s elevation.
Night came over the heath >to find. the king ;
and iiis army swept away, and Cromwell, the
truly soldier-general, seated in his tent, wea
ried with victory.
In the midst of a pause- in conversation—for
Lord Essex, Colonel Drummond, Sir Arthur
Haselrig, and others were with him—Colonel
Brandon entered hurriedly, excitedly, and cov
ered with blood and mire.
“ General,” he said, with white lipa,l wish
my dismissal!”
All started.
During that day’s glorious fight Brandon had
been a foremost hero.
“Your dismissal, colonel!” cried Cromwell.
“Has anyone slighted you after your noble
work to-day, thatyou come to me to ask so ex
traordinary a thing?”
“General Cromwell,” he said, “no one has
slighted mo, but I wish to go. Events have
occurred that leave me no alternative but to
quit the service of my country, and devote my
life to a work of private vengeance.. Let me be ,
thought a coward if needs be, but let me go I’.’’
Cromwell shook his head.
“Indeed, colonel,” he said, “you-place me ;
in a position of great difficulty. Services such
as yours I cannot and must not dispense with.. i
Will not a few days’ absence be sufficient to
answer your purpose ?”
“ General,” returned Brandon, in a voice full
of emotion, “ I estimate your kindness, I swear i
to you, at its noble worth, but the absence of a
few days would, to me, be useless. I must
know myself to be untrammeled. If I thought 1
that I was compelled to return to the army at
any specified time, I should be unable to follow
up and pursue this deadly enemy, who is the
curse and bane of my life. Give mo my dismis
sal, general, or place me under arrest; or I
shall, during tho night, act the part of a cow
ard, and run away!” ;
Oliver Cromwell—who was in great trouble
as lie listened to the words of this, one of the <
bravest of his commanders—remained in deep
thought for a moment.
Then he said r “ Brandon, your services have i
been this day, and of old, of such a kind that
to refuse you a favor would be ingratitude.
Take, then, leave of absence, and return when
you are able; but it must be on one condi-.
“ What is that, general?”
“ I will explain. Your life is precious to me, !
and necessary to your country; and if you are
the object of* private spite, it is not for you.to :
travel througn the cduntry alone. If, there- ,
tore, you leave the camp, .you must take with
you ten troopers to protecryou. They shall be
completely at your service, and may aid you in
your design.”
“I accept most willingly■!” cried Brandon.
“ Heaven bless you! Have you commands for
London ?”
“ You aro going to London, then!” exclaimed
Cromwell, m surprise. “That is well; I will
send news of our victory. Get your men ready,
and return, and your dispatches shall, be
ready for you.”
In "half an hour Gregory Brandon was. on .his
road.toward the metropolis..
Soarecly had the battle of Marston Moor been
decided—scarcely had .the last boomings of the
cannons died away, and the clouds of smoke
melted into the horizon—when; the old man
who at Oldham Castle had warned him against
Rufus Slight, approached Gregory Brandon.
“Colonel,” he said,*.“l have news for you.”'
Brand-on was j ust enter tug, his tent..
“Come within,” he said,.eagerly.
Knowing that the old man had been for days
and weeks sedulously employed in endeavoring
to discover Lady Eveline* Courtney’s place of
concealment, he expected, at once news of. his
“Well,” he asked, anxiously, when they, had
entered, “ what news bring you?”
The old man shook his head.
“ 11l news ! —ill newsiß’he said.. “ Tha- Lady
Eveline has fled to London!”
“ To London!” cried Brandon, wildly..
“ Nay, then, colonel,” said the other, depre
cating.ly; “have patience with me,,or I cannot
“ Well, well, I will- not interrupt you,” said
Brandon, flinging himself into a seaU “Pro
ceed, and I will listeni patiently.”’
“ Well,” said the old man, “ it seems that on
quitting Oldham Castle, Lady Courtney fled
with Lady Catherine Douglas and Sir Arthur
Heathcote to Glenoland. They were prison
ers before this, but I make my story purposely
as short as possible.. While there, she was
pestered, as 1 have heard, by the; attentions of
Sir Arthur Heathcote, who succeeded, in per
suading her that you were dead. The other
night she fled to- Le..don with Lord Rokeby! ”
Brandon sprang up with a cry like that of a
wounded lion.
“With Lord Rokeby!” he exclaimed, and
without another word,, rushed away to, Crom
well’s tent.
Thus we see him on his way to Lohdon,
where we must leave him for tne moment, in
order that the reader may follow for a while
the fortunes of Lady Eveline.
It will be remembered that as soon as the car
riage in which she was escaping from Glen
oland had reached a lonely part of the high
way, her companion had spoken, and that she
recognized his voice as that of Lord Rokeby.
“I have you in my power at length, dear
est!” he had said, as he slid his arm round her
She sprang from him with a cry—a cry which
would have roused any coachman that was not
a friend of the rider.
“ Great Heavens! what base—what infamous
treachery is this ?” she cried, as she made in
effectual efforts to open the door, and then
sank back exhausted against tho cushions.
‘ Lord Rokeby again slid his arm around her
waist, and finding less resistance—for the
sense of her dinger had deprived her of her
strength—he pressed her passionately to him,
and kissed her again and again upon her lips,
becoming more and mdre fervent as her warm,
glorious form lay upon his breast.
“ Oh, loved one!” he exclaimed, “how have
I longed and prayed for this moment!”
i “ Coward and traitor!” cried Eveline, forcing
herself from his grasp; “if there is justice in
: Heaven you will yet be punished for your
i treachery. You have murdered Brandon, and
i now you seek my ruin!”
“Eveline,” said Rokeby, “I swear to you
’ you are wrong. Brandon is not dead !”
i “Not dead! Oh, thank Heaven!” cried she.
; “ I have, then, some one to defend me and
L avenge my wrongs I”
, “He will never know where you are,” said
- Rokeby. “But, at any rate, he is not dead.
. And to your second statement, I can but say
i this ; lam not seeking your ruin; for, imme
i diately upon our arrival in London, our mar
riage will bd celebrated.”
j Lady Lveltaie ghuddqted'
“ That is sufficient ruin and dishonor,” she
said, “without anything else. To become
your wife would be to me the most hideous ca
lamity that could befall me. I loathe and hate
you so much that I would rather grovel on my
hands and knees forever in the darkness,
than go to the altar with you. There is noth
ing crawling on the earth so utterly noisome
and loathsome to me as you are!”
Lord Bokeby would have been more than
human had he been able to have resisted a
feeling of anger at these words,
“ You are complimentary to me indeed, Eve
line,” he said ; “ but,, in spite of the unbounded
detestation which your words exhibit toward
me, I yet have hopes that when we are man
and wife, you will think better of it,, and we
may spend many happy days together I”
“Lord Bokeby,” said Eveline, “ so convinced
am I that Heaven could not permit such injus
tice, that I promise, if lover become your wife,
to love, and honor, and respect you.”
“At the next stage,” continued Bokeby, not
heeding the insult conveyed in her words, “ I
shall be compelled to leave you. During your
journey to London, you will be guarded by a
faithful follower of mine ; and in two weeks I
shall meet you in the metropolis.”
Lady Eveline spoke not; but her heart leaped
with joy.
“ This faithful follower may be bribed,” she
thought. “ Who knows, in these days, who is
faithful, and who is not ?”
At the first inn at which they halted, the car
riage stopped at the door, and almost instan
taneously tne change was effected.
The new-comer was a tall, stout, heavily
bearded man, dressed in the costume of a
royal trooper.
i This was Bufus Slight.
He glanced with bold admiration at the
lovely form of the lady by his side, and at
length ventured to speak.
“It is ,a cold night for a long ride, lady,” he
“Tt is,” said Lady Eveline ; “ but the ride
need not be long, unless you yourself wish it to
be so.”
“ What mean you, lady ?”
“T mean this : I am rich, and you are poor;
what say you to a thousand pounds, if you al
low me to escape?”
For an instant the man hesitated.
The sum she offered was a large one.
But then it would not recompense him for
the loss of what Bokeby was to give him, and
of his revenge, on Brandon.
“No, my lady,” he said; “I must do my
duty.- If I had a wife and a lot of children, it
might be different; but I’m a single man, a
soldier, and can. be jolly on very little. Ko,
madam, I must do as I’m told, ana have a clear
Lady Eveline shivered-
“ You are-cold, my lady,rhe said. “ Let me
offer you my warm cloak.”
And suiting the action to the word, he placed
his heavy military qloak. around her, with such
excessive zeal that Lady Eveline moved away
from him.
“No offence,,l trust ?.” said Rufus Slight.
*“No—I thank you. very much,” said Lady
The journey to London, was- performed in
comparative silence.
There were oniy four rests..
These were at lonely, and half-ruined, placed,
whose inmates seemed to be creatures oi Lord
Bokeby,,and who>wero quite inaccessible to any
feeling.of compassion..
At length they arr rived. at the north of Lon
don, and here Lady Eveline had to undergo the
first indignity which- she had-to suffer during
the journey..
Rufus Slight,. quietly informing: her that
such wore his orders, bound her wrists firmly
together in such a manner that she? could not
raise her arms, and then confined her mouth
so that.she could.not call out..
Being, now sure that ho one would interfere
with him, more especially as-it dead of
night, .Rufus Slight boldly took-her. to-the. mn
in Fleet street, where ho had some time before
made with the landlord the murderous compact
which -Brandon’s flight had foiled.
Here a room was provided for her. at the-top
of the house, from; which, there was-no,possi
bility of escape..
Into this pi ace, furnished,,be it said*, with no
lack of- comfort, she was conducted by Rufus
Slight, who now, for the first time, ,tonk. off her
bandages. .
“ Am I to remain here all alone ?””sb« cried..
“ No,- no ; not so bad as that, my lady,” said
Rufus Slight 1 :.“you shall have a person to at
.tend yom. She’s a decent sort of person, and
will do everything to make you
And so saying, lie quitted her..
An hour passed..
Faint and weary from i her journey;.she was ;
quite glad to hear the rattle of glasses- and
plates which portended a meal.
She glanced up eagerly as the • door opened,,
anxious to see the face of her future compan
ion, and <sho uttered at once a. cry of .j oyful, sur
The new-comer was Ruth Wentmoro>-
“ Oh, Ruth ’-’ cried Eveline.
“Hush, my lady! not a. word now-!.” said,
she. “We are watched.”

emissions, it is not necessary for you to read this. If you
arc suffering or have suffered from Involuntary Dis
charges, what effect does it produce upon your general
health. Do you feel weak, debilitated, easily tired?
Does a little extra exertion produce palpitatation of the
heart ? Does your liver or. urinary organs or your kid
ncy.c frequently get out of order? Is your urine seme
times thick, mi Iky or flocky, or is it ropy on settling?
Or does a thick scum rise to the tep? Or a sediment in
tho bottom af cer it has stoed awhile ? Do you have spells
of short breathing or dyspepsia? Are your bowels con
stipated? Do you have spells of fainting, or
'rushes of blood to the head? Is your memory
impaired? Is your mind constantly dwelling upon this
subject ? Do you feel dull, listless, moping, tired of com

from everybody ? Docs any little thing make you start or
jump? Is your sleep broken or restless? .Do you dis

Do- you pursue your business with the same energy?
D»o; you feel as much confidence m yourself? Are

Have you restless nights? Your back weak, knees weak,
and have but little appetite, and you attribute this
to Dyspepsia or Liver Complaint? Did you ever tell
y.ottF doctor that you had practiced masturbation, or
that yon had suffered from badly-cured gonorrnaia, or
syphillis, or from venereal excesses ? Perhaps you never
thought of confiding those things to him; and if you

aßbwedihim to-question you closely on the point, for fear
of offending you; and if ho had suspected anything of
the kind„ being your family physician, he durst not for
tlie world have- hinted at the taiag, for fear of you be
cemihsindicnant and insulted. .
JSow,.reader,, seli-abuse, venereal diseases badly cured,
and.sexual excasscs. are all capable of producing a weak
ness of the generative organs. The organs of genera
tion,, when in perfect health, make the man. Did you
ever think t.huißhose bold, defiant, energetic, perse
vering;. successful business men are.always those whose
generative organs are in perfect health ? You never hear
such men complain of being melancholy, of nervousness,
of palpitation of .the heart. They are never afraid they
cannot succeed- in business; they don’t become sad and
discouraged: they are always polite and pleasant in tho
company of tidies, and look you and them right in the
lace—none-oi your down looks or any other meanness
about them- 1 do not mean those men who keep these
ongans- i Hamed by running to excess. These will nr.t
only, ruimtheir constitutions, but also those they do busi
ness warn or for.. .
How- many mesfrom badly cured private diseases, from
the effects of eelf-abuse and excesses, have brought »
about that st ata cl weakness in th se organs that has
reduced rhe general system so much as to induce almost
every other disease —i ,1 a . a i - eo-
t on,.si i. ide, and ab.-nost every other form of disease
' which humanity is heir to, and the real cause of the
trouble scarcely ever suspected, and have doctered for

xi.< y auk nt .£ < many years past, has been exclusively
di a-ted < > the marment of venereal diseases, and oi
such comj’aintE a.-> arise more immediately irom a disor
dered or diseased condition of the generarive system,
whether constitutional or acquired. In th;s statement,
Lirust not be umierstood to cast the slightest imputa
. t ion upon the skill of other members of our profession,
i in the tr. jstmenti of such complaints; on the contrary, I
1 mean sim ; ,lf to infer that, as in all important underta,;-
ings. much can be-effected by a divition of labor, so it is '
evident that a'.man w io confines his studies to one class
of disorders,.witliozu- diverting any portion cf his atten
tion to the more-general objects of general practice, must
be more intimately, acquainted with them, and with more
' certainly, be able to r-sinedy them, than a man whose
mind is occupied- with the study oi all the various and
varying diseases to which the frame is liable. We need
no greater proof cf this than the fact that all great men
who- havaiexccUed. in their profession have made soma
particular branch oft it their more immediate study.
Hence; somodiavo excelled in medicine and some in sur
gery;, so in. tho*diseases of men; some more particu
larly in tnose of women, and others in those of children.
Again, many have applied themselves to the study of cer
tain organa of the human frame; hence, wo have one
man celebrated in the. < reatment of diseases oi the brain,
anollier oi the eye. ear, stomach, lungs, &c.; m
- short, almost all tthacdifferent diseases and various or
gans off the body have,, at least in large cities, had their
respective: professors..- Perhaps, if this system oi tne
sub-division ot medical labor and study had been more
generally adopted, disease would not only be more t nor
ougnly,understood^.but moieespe dally relieved, and less
frequonk. in its But, of all disorders, there
are none which require more direct, distinct, and unin
terrupted. study than those concerning the organs of
generation; and. certainly those members of tho profes
sion who direct their attention to these complaints en
tirely,.are tne most fit and proper to apply to for a cure—

cause, and restoring the monthly sickness, has proved to
be the celebrated
Thousands of ladies have used them with infallible cer
tainty. . .
Read what the best physicians testify in respect to
“ A woman applied to be treated for suppression. It
appeared that she had been subject to irregularity, or
stoppage of the monthly turn?, and as she appeared to be
free from the usual symptoms attending pregnancy, it
■was not supposed that the stoppage arose from that
cause. She commenced using the PORTUGUESE FE
MALE MONTHLY PILLS. After using them about
five days—from certain indications attending miscarriage
—suspicions began to be entertained that the suppression
might have arisen from pregnancy, which, upon examina
tion, proved to be the case—too late, however, to prevent
the miscarriage. In a short time it took place, and on
about the third day after she entirely recovered, with but
little comparative inconvenience to her general health.”
He further states that their efficacy and certainty are
such, that they are sometimes administered tn cases of
malformation of pelvis, when the female is incompetent
, to give birth at maturity.
They cannot fail. In recent Cases they succeed m forty
i eight hours. Price $3 per box. In obstinate cases, those
two degrees stronger should be used. Price $5.

I 1 n all such cases, patients should consult their own-indi-

I cessful practica in the treatment of the above diseases,
and who can, permanently cure you. The groat number
of cases which we have treated, and the gratification of
seeing them all cured, enables us to guarantee a certain
and positive cure in every case. To prove this, we solicit,
more especially, cases of long standing, and those who
have been unskillfully treated elsewhere or pronounced
incurable. Throw all quack remedies to. the dogs. Every
thorougniy educated and well read physician who has had
the same advantages in the treatment of the above dis
eases as ourself, knows that the same remedies which
cure one will not cure or even benefit every other.
Every patient must positively, if a cure is effected, be
treated according to the constitutional peculiarities of
their individual self.
