Long, long ago, before jou, reader, or I was born, there dwelt on a splendid estate in England, Lord Granville and his lady, and flistcr Henrietta. He was a tall dark man, with a firm will, fixed notions rf justice and crime, aud an unbending ob stinacy; she was a fair delicate blond, shrinking at a harsh look, gentle to a fault, and ready to overlook, any misde meanors, if her forgiveness was claimed by penitence; they had one child, a love ly little girl, just one year old at the time our story opens, a fair baby, with dark brown hair, large hazel eyes, delicate fea tures, and a plump, healthy form. "Lucy," said Henrietta (iranville to her sister-in-law one morning, 44 1 am go ing to have my fortune told." 44 Nonsense. Ketta . where: 44 There is a gypy encampment "about" half a mile from here, and one of t'he wo men, Jessie Hanvers, she calls herself, is famous for telling fortunes." 44 The wife of Huon Danvers, who brings fruit sometimes to sell here?" 44 The same ; a tall, graceful gypsy, with thc deepest blackest eyes I ever saw. A strange weird woman she is, by all ac counts ; talks to herself, and prophecies of days to come." 44 Iletta, do not go," said Lady iran ville, imploringly. 44 1 know this Jessie, and I know not why I fear her. When she fixes those black eyes on ine, I feel my flesh creep and my heart stand still." 44 Nonsense, Lucy; you arc nervous. She is tpuccn, this woman, of these peo ple, and I have a taste for royalty. Conic, I am going, and you must go to." 44 My fortune is already m;fde, Iletta. These people never get any further than matrimony." 44 Rut you will come with me, Lucy ? I long for a walk this pleasant morning, and you must join me." Iidy (Iranville allowed herself to be pursuaded, and the two girls, for Ladv Lucy was but eighteen, and Lady Henri etta yet younger, 6tartcd for the gypsy encampment. They found Jessie lan vers seated in front of a rude tct, play ing with a pack of cards, and muttering to herself as she threw one after another from her hand to thc ground. As the visitors drew near, she let her hands fall in her lap, and raised their eyes to their faces. After gazing for a moment, she said half scornfully 44 What seek you here?" Henrietta then upoke: 44 Wc have heard of your skill at fortune-telling and have come to test it." Jessie rose. She was a tall, handsome woman, about twenty years of age. Her features were regular, her eyes were large and very brilliant, and her skin, though dark, beautifully clear. Her long black hair fell in masses to her waist, and form ed a beautiful contrast to the whito shawl pinned across her shoulders. Sho wore a red hood over her head, and a many-colored pkirt, short enough to leave her deli cate feet and ankles fully revealed. The hand which clasped Henrietta's was pmall and delicately formed as thc lady'p own. She looked long and earnestly at thc palm, and then paid 44 There is nothing wonderful there. You will marry, and die." 44 Thank you," said Ketta, sarcastic ally; 44 you arc truly well skilled in your calling: perhaps Lucy will die too, some day." Jessie fixed her large black oyrcs on Iady Lucy's face, and then said, in a low voice 14 Die ? Yes, broken-hearted ! Sorrow will follow her. Why," she exclaimed fiercely, 44 do you fear mc? Your fate is linked with mine. I know not how; I onljr gee in the far distance you dead, and I triumphant ; while above all. shine two J words Ju.'ticc, Kcvcne I" Her form dialatcd, and her eyes flashed, as with the One afternoon (Jrace Melville was fly air of a prophetess, (die pronounced these j ing about the house, informing every one words, 44 (Jo; leave me; I would be j that it was her birth-day, and undo Hen- alone." Ketta drew her half fainting sister from the spot, trying in vaiu to soothe her ter rors. 44 1 dead, and she triumphant ! Oh, Iletta, what can be iu store for me ? sob bed Lady Lucy. 44 Nonsense, Lucy. You surely don't believe anything a half-crazy gypsy wo man tells you ' You tremble yet. Why, M.ster, this i foolish." 44 1 know it, Ketta; but something tells me these were not 'idle words. She frightens me, and I caunot help the dread I feel that she is right; our fates arc liuk ed together." It was several days before Iidy Lucy recovered from the agitation the gypsy! had thrown her into, and it was weeks before she could hear J chic's name with out a shudder. In thc spacious library of his country house sat Lord (iranville, while opposite him stood Huon Ihtnvers. 44 You wished to speak with me," said his lordship, coldly. 44 What have you to say ?" Huon stood a moment irresolute, and then said, 44 Mercy !" 44 Mercy ! 'Tis an old cry," said Lord (iranville. 44 Not one poacher comes be fore me but has it on his totijrue. I sav to you, as I say to all : There is justice for all criminals; I show merry to none." There was a bitter pride struggling in Htion's heart, but, quelling it, he said 44 1 do not fear thc punishment. I will never be transported ; I can die. 'Tis for my wife I ask my life, humble to beg it. It will kill Ler if I go from her." 44 Why did you commit tho crime ?" 4 I was earned away by excitement. I was wrong to throw myself into any dan ger, with Jessie to care for; but it was only one little hare; the punishment is not proportioned to the offence, (live me my liberty, and I will repay your loss a thousand fold." 44 Loss!" said Lord (Jrai.ville, scornful ly. 4 I care not for the lit4lo I lose in this lawless way, but 1 will crush your tribe's depredatiens in the bud. If I h t you go now, there will be no end to the poacliing done on my estate." lfr rose and ranir the bell. Ketnove this man, nnd confine him until the officers arrive from Jjondon," he paid to the servants who entered. Huon was removed to thc county jail, but the next morning ho was found life levs on the floor of the cell, while an empty bottle labelled 44 poison' laying beside him, explained the cause of his death. Jcssio, maddened by crief and despair, sought Lord (iranville. What passed be tween them none ever knew; but Jessie, as she left the room, said one word 4Kevenge!" A year passed away, and there was no change in the camp or the large house, save that Lord Granville's daughter, the little KUa, was runniug about now, and beginning to talk. One morning there was an unusual excitement in the gyp sies camp; they were breaking up to move their quarters elsewhere. Iluon's death had made them discontented, and Jessie's filling her husband's place made them murmur against woman's rule. Jcs sio at length announced her determination to leave them, ami they agreed to sepa rate for a time. Jessie took leave of all her old associates and left them, or rather they left her, for long after they were gone, the lingered around Lord Gran ville's estate. One morning there was a strange scene of grief acted in the great house. Klla, the pet child of all, was missing; had been lost all night. Lady Lucy was sick with grief, Lord Granville ran hither and thither giving directions, and thc ser vants crowded together in tho hall were eagerly discussing thc routes purfucd the ninht before, and those to be taken that day. Meanwhile, pressing eagerly forwards and holding a sleeping child in )ler arms, Jessie Danvcrs pursued her way toward, London. Iays, weeks, months passed on, and still there was sorrow in Lord Gran ville's house. The lost ono could not be found. Lady Lucy lay veiy ill of brain fever, brought on by grief and anxiety, and poor Ketta, bending over her, thought often cm the gypsy's prophecy. Thc fe ver increased in violence, and Lord Gran ville, holding his wife's corpse in his arms, felt that he was indeed widowed and childless. CHAPTER II. Klcvcn years had passed since the events occurcd spoken of in tho last chap ter. Ketta Granville was married to a lr. Melville, aud with her husband and only child, (trace, who was about nine ycars old, was staying with her brother on his country estate. Lord Granville, altered in appearance, had still the same unbending finuntsj in thc administering of justice, and the same unpitying inflcxi-1 bility in refusing mercy to criminals.

(Iraco was almost crazy with de- li'ht. and a new white drtrs, trimmed with blue, was doum-d with bauds trem bliug with eagerness. 44 Ready, mamma!" cried the little girl, knocking at her mother's door. 44 1 am all ready. 44 Come in, (Irace," said her mother. 44 You are an hour too early, but come in, and I will tell you about the little girl you are going to see to-ni.L La 1 eht - Zura, she continued as r:iee plae-d herself at 1.er feet, - is a l;ieneU child, who began to dance in I arts Ion- W.orc she was as old as you are, when, indeed, J she woa in h-r fifth year. 1W little girl, she is i treated, 1 suppose; ...o.d of thcse child dancer arc; but .she i very Lemttitul. Have you ever seen hor, mamma i - .v., near, mi p.T.i n.. , im. one, you are so impatient mat you r.au better coand walk in the garden until the carriago comes." Away flew Grace, and did not return until she came to announce that thc loui expected carriage was at the door, nnd iu a few moments the party, oiidsting of Lord (iranville, Ketta- and (irace, were on the London road. Another scene was securing in London at the same time, in a small house in a narrow court. The little parlor of the house occupied by two persons a woman and a little girl. The woman was n tall splendid-looking brunette, of rare beauty, dressed in the costume of n fisherman's . wife. A handkerchief of brilliant colors was tied locscly over her head, making her black hair look yet darker by con trast with its gaudy hues. Her dress, though of coarse materials, was very rich in color, and suited well her beaut', tho' her haughty air anil queenly gait were not in harmony with the mean garments. She was occupied in dressing a beautiful little girl who stood before her, patiently allowing her to deck her graceful form in thc exquisite white robes which lay beside her. 44 Mamma, chcrc mamma," said the little one, laying her head caressingly on tliO dark bcrtuty' lap, 44 you urv sick. Your hands burn, and your eyes glitter as they never do unless you are tick or angry with Zara, are you mamma?" 44 Angry my dear child ! no; but I am anxious. Kemcmbor, this is your first ap pearenco in London, Zara. Suppose 3011 fail in pleasing the Kuglish critics what then ?" 44 What then ! Why wc will return to Paris, where shall I receive this ;" and she intimated applause with her tiny hands; but I shall not fail; I mean to dance my very best. See." And with a quick, graceful movement phc began to dance. Wo leave her here, to follow, Lord Granville to the theatre. Thc farco and overture, are over and the curtain rises for thc ballet of the 41 Ocean Nymph." The first scene repre sents a fisherman seated by the ocean mending his nets. Suddenly a large shell appears floating on thc waters; and stand ing in a graceful attitude in this shell is Zara, the star of thc evening. I wish here to describe her : La Petite Zara is only thirteen years of 1 age, and her slight but beautifully mould ed form is: the perfection of childish sym metry. Her glossy chestnut hair falls in na tural curls below her waist, and in its rings are fastened small seed pearls, which look like drops of water. Her features are del icate beauty; her exquisite complexion needs no artificial coloring; ami her tiny feet are not injured by dancing. Her dress is of white illusion, that looks like a soft sea foam thrown gracefully around her, leaving her beautiful arms aud neck exposed, and pearls here and there ap pear among tho soft lace folds. Thc pu rity of her dress is unbroken by any or-j naincnt. Slowly, and gracefully, thc shell glides over the water, while thunders ot applause greet tho lovely vision, until, springing lightly upon the stage thej 44 Ocean Nymph," with a low courtesy, acknowledges her graceful reception. This over, she executes a pa and called on thc plav bills thc 44 fascination dance;" and truly it is so. Shecommeneos with a slow, irresolute step, dancing round thc bewildered fisherman, and ever and anon inviting him to join her. Faster and faster the music sounds, and wilder grow the intricats mazes of thc dance, until the fishcrmau starting up, tries to entrap the lovely vision, but, with merrv archness, she resist his attempt, gliding under his arms, or springing lightly over the impediments ho throws in her way to detain her. At lenght he throws his uct over her and then followed the dance ol thc even ing, famous on account of thc difhculty of Zara's dancing with a net over her shoulder and arms. While this dance is still in progress, the mother of thc fisherman enters and tries to persuade him that tho vision he sees is evil 44 Henry !" cried Ketta, becoming pale a death u it is Jcssio Danvcrs !" 44 Where?

A cloud of fearful passion swept over Jessie's face as, throwing her work violent ly from her, he rose and stood before the child. 44 Mother, mother, don't look so at me !" cried Zara, terrified at the expression of Jessie's face. 44 Zr.ra," she said, in low husky tone 4 how if he had killed her husband for a trilling crime murdered him ! Was any revenge to great for thc this ?" 4 Oh, I don't know mamma! Nldy ever did so, of course ; but you do fright en 1110 so! Mamma, you are very hiiltv.
