She hid her face, blushing and trembling; but, as I proceeded, 'shci'timidly raised her eyes pnd listened quietly, making no effort to escape my arm. Indeed I could see plainly enough that she wras pleased. I knew that in a minute I should press ray lips to hers unresist ed. I was just about to do so, when a noise behind me, like the jumping of a heavy man .from the top of the wall, made me start .and spring to.the ground.

The scenesj were ail new, jand I ' was at precisely (he age when our enjoy ment is .keenest Jerry was pursu ing his owh schemes, .of pleasure in his wild way, and I was left almost alone to find what enjoyment I might Snvpral fifties I had met Carlota in the cardeh; but the. knowledge that Benito watched us closely made bur tvitvipwd 'short and stolen. She -Uk1 " M J had told I me all her history; how she had been affianced by her parents to hpr cousir, when both were children; how time' had revealed to her the dark and unloveable traits of Ms character; how with many tears she had made up her mind to the sacri fice; how love for the memory of her dead parojnts had induced her to do she said she had. now de- so. iut. ti i termincd that no power should force She did not and could her to it not love aim., ipresaeunt-r luuuiij, . t 11 i!:,!!,. to say : wWther she loved another, but either she was unwilling to speak, or we were always interrupted, and I forced to make a. precipitate retreat! Things were in this state i on the' evening before Christmas.! I still lingered on without more plainly de claring what I felt, (you see by this time that I was deeply in love,) and she was unwilling to forestall my dec laration. On that night I went to the Church of the Incarnacion to hear mass at midnight Like all churches in that country it; wak largo and en tirely void of seats. Dimly lighted by the altar-candles, the only lights in the house,) the au lience kneeling or sitting promiscuously on the pave ment, many opportunities and tempt ations were presented to attend to other ; things beside, the . services. The fuirSenoras, with their mantillas drawn over their heads and across their mouths, alternately sat and knelt, repeating the responses and i replying with their eyes to the cava- j hers, whose devotions were at least notdirected to the altar. With- a light' Spanish mantle thrown1 over my shoulders, I stood among the kneeling throng, I confess, not over-devout A crowd of women came rustliug in. j As they passed me I felt my mantle slightly pulled, g saw the bright eyes and on turniri of Carlota be it on mo for a moment and then withdrawn, j ; her auntj' whom slid J called mother 1 ' I ii I I ,,i il and they both kheltlvery near m I stepi d lightly kduhd them and seated which myself on a kind ol dais r;in aloncr the side of the churc 1, very near p canoia. x iiau not been there more than fiveminutcs1 when she looked up with one of those long, furtive docks, which are so charming from a dark,- liquid eye.

It ran thus: 'Mv mother, father! and Benito will be in the. pro fession to-morrow at three p.m. I1 shall have a head ache, so I cannot go; jbut will be at heme. Santiago will bring you the key Carlota.;' ' j -j; - '; I I went back, caught her eye rest ing inquiring. ly on me, 'and slightly nlodciing as a token that I would be icre, retired from the. place. ; j Wh(n I got bac searched for the i to my lodgings, note, lor the pur pose of -destroying it, or . reading it again, perhaps, but it was no where to lounu. i na supposin be found.: I hastened back! to the I j might have but ! I could see VV " nothing of it Benito was standing near where I had sat; but he did not move, only glancing'at me and with drawing his gaze; He seldom no ticed me how; indeed, never, except by one of those sinister looks, which promise no' good ieehng. It was- but a few months - before the day fixed for his marriage Tith Carlota; and he watched his prizb with a jealousy truly Spanish, j " ! ! !; The note was not to be found. ; On the followjng day, Christmas, the procession was-1 formed at the Church of -'the Incarnacion,' and moved for! the jCathcdral at three o'clock. About the same timej the peon boy entered the 'Meson' ! and handed me a small Key, to wmcn was attached a strip bf 'paper with these words: 'Enter by the door on St Mar tin's-street ! J I went down immediately on the irnfirchinjr of : the procession. The 'streets were entirely deserted, so that I had no trouble in entering ' unob served. The little postern on Saint Martin-street, opened directly in the rear of the summer-house, into which I -was not long in going.

'You are. here now at all events: I will nol; complain, since yon have come ' j, 'Did you wish to see 'me very much indeed?' aid Lc , ' - I 'Can you ask?' And she gave mq a look which said more plainly than any words could, that she Wanted : to see me alone of all the world. What could I do? 1 1 took her hand in one of mine, and placing the, other round her waist, drew; 'Do you love her gently to , then?' I me. : ! whisp-; me ered. . jj: She gazed in' my face a moment; and, then throwing her arm over my shoulder; abandoned herself to my caresses. :' : j ' : 1 I The crack of a rifle resounded through the garden, and with a wild; cream she sprang from my arms an4 fell to j the ground! I jumped from thti hammock, "and rawing a pistol, rushed out upon the walk.

'. . ! ..I ai nost all the inhabitants ol the city; as far as the eye could j reach not a human being Was visible. ! ! i I returned tlo the arbor, and found Santiago and a peon woman lifting Carlota upon a bench. The ball in tended for me had entered her tem ple and she. was dead ! Her face was turned upwarijl, and the blood was slowly dripping ; from the wound to the ground. Young, innocent, . pas sionate and beautiful, her waim af fections had leil her to a premature and violent end! ' j 'You had better not stay,' said Santiago, as 'I stood gazing upon the ruin before me; 'My master will be home soon, and you mus ifcjot W him find you here. Juanna and !J will tell him.' j IIo was right; I could do no good by stajing, and might do harm. Telling the boy to say to fyis master that 1 would call upon him on the following day and explain! my con nection with her death, J I looked for the last tipie upon the lifeless form and slowly left the place. j ! The remainder of my story is soon told. Her uncle never knew by whose hand she had died; but the disappearance bf his son led him to suspect Benito. The latter lelt the city immediately after the procession'. lie was observed to talk a moment with j a Mexican, and then ;disappear i'ng down a street near by, he was seen no more.! Yet hisjoivn hahd had not done jthe deed, for he was in the processioin at the i time and throughout tlie mass. Tlie explana tion I suppose to lie in the fact, tbjat he had got iuform;ition jsomo way of the appointment; probably by glid ing the note which I had dropped; and having hired two assassins, pur posely showed himself in the proces sion, in order! to " escape the suspi cion j of having murdered me, ior jvhom the shot was intended. All efforts to arrest him were lunsuccoss ful, probably,! because they 'jvere dis couraged by jhis friends, j j ! WTe stayed! in the city long enough to witness tlie magnificent funeral service of the Catholic Church, with what feelings, I will not stop to stay. I called.to ikse her uncle,' but I am now not suqrised that heji refused to see me. - On the following day, ( we went to sis,u jiere i toOK snipping lor lia llabana, and have hot been m Menda sini-e. . 4- Tiie PoUto Rot Reward.
