This proposed allianoe was in every way a most nrenitablo one. A stranger to France, with neither for tune not noble birth to recommend me, I ought to have kept on my guard against an affection which might prove a source of the deepest sor row. " My grandfather, divided between his desire of seeing me make a brilliant matoh and that of keeping me with him in his old age, left the matter entirely to myself.

Thoroughly so quaintod with M. de Clamart's character and e. that of his family, he had little diffioulty in convinoing my grandfather that snoh a match would seriously compromise the serenity of my hapoy youth and his own old agoe.

Poor Mme. de Clan art p1 was overjoyed. 5, For some time there had been coca derable gI talk of a proposed alliance between Rose deo Lsneaux and Valfort, and Mme. de Laneau com ploted the joy of all her friends by at last bi giving their consent to their union. It wasde- tf oided that Immediately after the ceremony the ft happy couple should repair to the country, and spend the summer with their friends. One thing alone retaided Adbemar's depart- hi ore: he was obliged to appear as a witness a against St. Clair. Blanche oould not master her anxiety, and parted the whole day in pA prayer. It was nearly night, and Adhemar had not returned. Blanche's anxiety increased, and at c the seond of every pasaing earriage she ran to the window. The evening advanced, and still a, no Adbemar. t Valfort, who was among the spectators, withdrew, however, to acquaint the ladies Ot with what was going on. "The case has not yet been decided; but 01 compose yourself, madam," said he, noticig a Blanche's agitation. "Count Adhebbmar is very well now." " Has he been sick I" she eagerly asked. " He was quite overcome for a while, lint has entirely recovered now. The andiencencham- T bur was crowded; I heard much whispering t around me, and public opinion seeoed to be b I stroigly against St. Clair. At length the judge L aou jury entered the hall, and in a few minutes t the accused also. Hlis propoesessilg appear a ance inspired general interest.

A. he rose, h - St. Clair looked at him with an expression ot o diabolical hatred. Adhemar appeared calm a and self-possessed, but suddenly turned pale as death, and staggered. Telling him to sit down, i, they opened the windows. In a little while he a felt better, and was able to continue his testi Smony. All that he said was calculated to put r. a favorable construction upon St. Clair'e inten d tio's. d " A murmur of applause followed all his re sponses. and every one was beginning to look I more leniently upon the culprit, until other a witnesses appeared, and amorg them the ser. a vant who had formerly been uol master's ac e. complice.

Blanche lsetened in terror, and could scarcely it articulate the words, "Unhappy mother I mis id erable t.

After all the witnreseu were examined, St. Clair was asked if he had anything to say to self defence.

Blanche, recalling all the circumstanoes of God's merotiul provi dence in the disposition of her lot, coald but congratulate herself on being united to a man who had taught her to fear and love God. St. Clair's miserable end was a striking warning to the sceifers at religion. Where wes be now ? What had become of his soul o At this thought abhe soivered from head to foot. " Alas I" said Adhemar, "bhis fate Is but the ^ natural consequence of ill-guided education to and contempt of religion. Only think I 1 was 0 upon the brink of that same precipioe myself. What but the mercy of Gad restrained me from falling into the abise Alh I Blanche, God to.day B has mademe feel most keenly my nuworthi. - ness and his mercy I" Poor Mme. de St. Clair became completely c deranged. The other relatives of the unfortun nate young man sought consolation for his untimely fate by persuading themselves that 9 it wiped out tho stain of his orimes. So differ ent are the Judgments of the world from those of God. Blanche and Adhemar endeavored to divert I their minds from this painful subject in ap plying themselvee with renewed seal to the execution of their lorg cherished plans for the p glory of their good Mleter and the welfare cf uls creatures. Having nothing to retain them I any longer in the capital--which could have but sad memories for them-they buetened to the country, accompanied by several of their friends. a On quitting Paris, Blacche seemed to breathe more freely, and the farther they left it be hind, the lighter her spirits grew. She at lest succeeded in partially cheering the melanhooly of Adhemar, who could not yet banish the im pression of the frightful soenehe had so lately witnessed. But when they saw the st.eples of St. --, a t and all the peasants standing upon the thresh old cf their dwellings, droorated with flowers, and casting their caps in the air, with loud vivas for monsieur and madam, forgetting the bitier past, the happy husband and wife could almost believe that this was their true wedding-day. Mme. Duval recetved them with open arms, apparently oblivious of her own sorrows in seeing at last her nephew and the amiable Bianoe as happy as she had always t desired and predicted they would be. Their adopted children als, greeted them with every demoanstratino of tender aftention. The worthy care atte.upted to mingle his ilo- t stations with thole of ti'e devoted family, but t his voice failed ham and tears alone ezp:retd I his emotioin. That evening they celebrated a solemn thanksgiving in the chapel of the part. 8weet a melodies reaounded through the greve, and Mary's statue, decorated with votive guts, seemed to smile upon Blanohe.

The worthy Care made a r short address upon the duties of Christian Spouses, and at this mooment Blanche and Ad hemar belteved their happiness complete, and ia pledge, as it were, of that awaiting them in a better world. SThey both prayed fervently that earthly Joys might never make them iorgetfol of the short i duration of their pilgrimage, and the necessity of striving incessantly to ascomplish the end it for which they were created-the glory of God and thesalvation of their souls. MUSICAL PITCH. r. lOW AND WVIIY IT UA BEEN RAISED AND THiE IRESULTINS EFFECTS. London Boclety. It is well known to musicians that during 'R the last century there has been a gradual Le rise in the pitch of musical notes; that is, e' the note which formerly nused to be regard or ed, asy as A, has gradually become consid ey ered flatter and flatter, so that the sound :g produced by a given key on a modern in strnment is senesbly sharper and more ly acute than that given by the corresponding i- key on an older instrument. To so great ok an extent has this variation now arrived that the highest concert pitches of the pres Seat day are at least a tone above those in If use in 1750; that is, the note which now st would be regarded as B fiat, or even almaost IA natural, was considered to be C natoral ar- or close to it in the first half of last centory, while even durinog the last fifty years there e has been a rise of from a semitone to s semitone and a balf in pitch. One effect of b this isthat the music of the older composers as now played produces an entirely differ Souat effect from that which it was intended as to do; it sounds as though it were trace ig posed into a higher key; while music to originally written for fair average tenors o and sopranos can now be efficiently sung P only by exceptional voices, the highest notes, which formerly were fairly in resachb . of ordinary coltivated voices, being now le made so high through the raising of the ed pitch as to be expressed only as acreeches and notes unpleasant through their too " great shrillness and consequently deficient in richness and fullness of tone. This dif tat flrence of pitch is acoustically expreesed Sby sanyig that the numher of vibrattons per Ssecond reqnired to give a certasin tone is be now coceidertbly greater than was foriierly cr the cn:'.
