Old Madame Leffingwell had the misfortune to be born of an old fami ly, aud' her last words were : "If a child of mine marries be neath him. I will come back anil curse him !" Even in that terrible moment. Es tella, the only daughter of the crone. could not refrain from glancing at Charles, the vounger son, nor could , he help blushing. For it was Charles that raadame meant. Edward was married, and the father of a family, and Estella could not be spoken ot as "him." Nothing now remained in the old home to leil of Madame Leffingwell' s reign there but he- portrait a state ly full length, but not unl'ke a hand some Queen Elizabeth, in its black velvet robes and diamonds, the ef fect heightened by the ruffs which mother and daughter both affected, though fashion forbade them to have the Ehzabethian height. One bright clay it pleased Mrs. Edward Leffingwell to visit her sister-in-law. and to bring her two children and her governess with her. "You have so much room, and are so hospitable, Stella," she said, "that I shall make no excuses whatever. Miss Mellon can sleep wherever the children do ; and we all want a week of country air so much." Miss Estella was obliged to smile am? utter words of welcome, but she could have stabbed dafk-cyed Miss Mellon with the hand she1 held out to her. As for governess, her ohiod was boiling at the thought that she had come to t'ie house oi the one who had behave 1 as Charles Leffingwell had done who had won her heart and then forgotten her. Miss Mclion's coldness, and his mother's last wo rds, his wish to be dutiful., and his desi'e to be happy all drove poor Charles to disirae tiou's verge ; and one day his self restraint came to an end with the sight of Miss Mellon io a pensive mood, quite alone in the library, setting copies for her young charges. All the little governess knew of the matter was, that there was a mo ment when she felt as though she should faint; that when it passed he was on his knees at her feet ; that his arm was about her waist, aud he was telling her all that she longed to hear. He 'oved her ; he adored her ; he should kill himself if she refused to be his wife, for he could not live without her. And when they parted she wore h'u ring upon her finger. iy near estella, saia young Mrs. Leffingwell, 8 lew days after, "there is something going on that .you really ought to know. Charles aid Rosa Mellon are engaged." "Have vou lost your senses ? or have 1 ? or is "t Charles who has gone inaI ?" asked Miss Estella, in awful tones. Charles is quite iu his right mind," said the young mal.roD. 'Rosa Mellon is as good as she is irettv. A great deal prettier than I am, Estella, and you did not wonder that Edward chose me." You were a De Courey," said Miss Leffingwell. That had nothing to do with it, Stella," said Mrs. Leflingwell ; "noth- 'And Rosa Mellon's mother takes in washing, doesn't she ?" asked Es tella, languidly. Washing ? You ought to ue ashamed of yonrselt ! Poor Mrs. Mellon, when lei't a widow . restored fine old lace elegantly." "She must have washed it, sneer ed Estella. "Well," said Mrs. Leffingwell, she was a lady, at all events ; and llosa had a perfect education; and Charlie is right. Now don't be un pleasant." "I shall not say a worn." saut iuiss ftstella: "but how can Charles fogev his mother's dying words ?" "But perhaps your mother might not think tha, Charles married be neath him if he married Rosa Mellon," saul Mrs. Lelfiugwell. "I am sure mamma alluded to Rosa," replied the spinster. But as Estella said nothing severe, i.he voung people were happy. When Rosa went awaj he future sis'-.er in-law even kissed her, and Charles was grateful. He aho had ' - the conclusion that Mrs. enrno w ' have thought llosa beneath litici. u' hip fMmton. of the 1 bought was very g'r'dat: lie sat that everting alone id the stu ir i room in wlncli that luu-tengtii ture of his ttidllier hung. He been reading by the light of a dent's lamp. There was no oui the room. The hours had followed each other to i heir graves until the twelfth hour was buaed. A dozen silvef stfokes had been made upon the boil Of thd i)d cldck 'y tile little silver figure of Tiuie, whd struck it with Ids scythe when each new hour was iioi'u. Charles felt very fond of all the world just then t he world had made him so happv. H s uoob a romantic torv, such as people are prone to read at such times, was just finished, lie still held it be, ween his fingers; but his hand had dropped over the arm of the Turkish chair iu which he satj and Ids eyes were (icd lipon the portrait of his mol nef. "Dear mother," he said to himse'f. "how good vou were to me I Stem and cold by nature, you still loved me fondly. Ah, if you were with mo again 1" In the dim light of the room the picture seemed strangely life-1 ike The voung man s emotions over came him, and he spoke aloud : "Ah, mother, if you could return," be said, "it would be to tell me I had done well." Almost as the words passed his lips, he saw, rising from the floor, -or from behind the picture, what seem- ed like a column of smoke. It was white and thick. He seemed to caich such ao odor as drifts down the aisle of a cathedral when the censer :s swung before the altar. H's first thought was of fire ; but the strange perfutoe produced an indescribable effect on him. Instead of starting to his feet, he sat rivited to his chair, with those strange thrills, that supernatural terrors somehow cause, running through his whole frame. And as he sat thus, the strange, white smoke covered his mother's picture, and from its midst a figure stepped forth and '..tood before him. His mother, in her velvet robes, her diamonds, her yellow lace ; uis mother, as the artist hud painted her; but with brows sternly bent; and a warning linger uplifted, as it had been when in early childhood be had oneudcu her. - IIjs mother s spirit. lie had no doubt of it. He suuk upon his knees, stretch ing out his arms towards her. "Mother," he said, do you come to bless me ? to tell me I have done right ? Tell me, mother !" The lips of the figuie moved; and from them, slowly, one by one, these words dropped xnto the silence of the room : "Remember my dyiwi ivordsT' Then the figure disappeared, the si.range, perfumed smoke faded away, and his mother's picture looked down on. him as it had done before. It was uot long before voua Mrs. Leffingwell came to her sister-in-law's home again. She came alone tins time ; and at once sought Charles iu the room in which he had shut himself up, except at meal times, for more than two weeks. She entered it, shut the door be hind her, seated herself, and spoke gravely : "Charle3, what is this between yourself and Rosa? She is very sad. She has told me that all is over between you. Is it Estella wiio lias caused this ?" "Estella is kindness its?.lf," said Charles. "She is as grieved, ts terrified, as I am; but none of us dare disobey a voice from the grave." 'Explain vourself, Ch.irlj !' said Ids sister-in-law. "My mother has come from her grave to forbid the marriage !" said Charles. "No, I am not mad, sis ter." And then he told her in what way his mother's spirit had appeared to him. "Yon slept and dreamt, Charles !" said Mrs. Leffingwell. "No, that I deny ; would I not re joice to think it so !" replied Charles. "The spirit was there no faint shadow. I could have touched it with ray hand." Mrs. Leffingwell listened. "Do you not remember that there are such things as optical illusions?" said she. "res, I have thought of every thing," said Charles. "But I saw I heard and then the perfume !" "Ver' well ; it is possible that things of this sort may happen," said Mrs. Leffingwell ; "but, Charles, if your mother could come once, she come auain. Promise me that you will not let this one experience de- cide you to break Rosa's near',, and ! I 1 f - it i make yourself miserable for life Go io me long arawmg-room again to 4- night. Sit where you sat, and watch. If your mother comes again, do as she bids yon. O'lierwise, bcl-eve me, you have had a dream noth-ng more." Perhaps yon are r;ht," said Charles. "I will do an vou say. Believe me, Rosa is deader to me than my life. Nothing less solemn than this could part us." Mrs. Leffingwell loft him when he had made he- this promise, and went o Estella, who professed herc'f I i i i ii i v - ' wuai. na'i nappene-i. rf.HV-tfMlten w? .. -her could hilt dec! ami mttn rnrv.-. da ud better thaii iJ ftfjidw" tii no vice given td bird; Midnight came again.

The figure of Time upon the cldcli Struck twelve slow strokes wit h his scythe: Arid" iUdilyeft, Charles Leffingwell was uofc sieeiiirig, lidr dreaming yet then the saraj soft, white smoke begaii td creep over" the picture! The same faint perliime filled the room. The figure on the canvas faded, and another stood amidst the mist that hid it. Again his mother, in her velvet, robes. pointed at him with a warning finger. "It is your spirit, mother !" cried Charles Leffingwell. "I cannot de nv it. Bless irie ! Tell trie if I do' well. I love her : she loves' inri. Bless us both, my mother !" And she answered: uMirry; and I return to curse you!" Charles Leifingvrell sduk into his chair with a groan. The cold. slo.y voice was silent, and the figure stopped back into the heavy, white depths that covered all the way. But now a lighter, smaller. more With fldor human, was sch-.u in the room. a little crv. it tiittivl acr jjs tu and into the smoke A sound as of a struggle was heard, and t!u.Mi the voice of young Mrs. Loitiiigvvell was lifted :ii;h.

The light Hashed up ; and, through the dispersing smoke Charles Lef fingwell saw his sister-in-law, with her arms about the waist of a velvet- clad woman. "It is EsLella not you' mother!" she sai-.l. "Liook m the little cup clo?et by the chimuey. You will find the perfumed drugs burning in a pan. Look ! it is only Estella." And Charles advanced, and saw his sister's face lined into age with true actress art. "Could you do that to me ?" !e said. "It was onsy to carry out your mother's wish, Charles," said Estella, in a low voice. "I knew you would not. regard nie. I snoke as she would speak if she could come back from heaveu." "In heaven they do uot think of pride of birth, Eitella," said Mrs. Leffingwell ; "but of true love, 1 doubt uot, they think often. Charles must marry Rosa. You see it now. Forgive her, Charles or I shall be sorry for my part in this affair The brother held his hand. The sister took it. But she left the old house on the day the young wife entered it; and, dwelling in solitary state, treasures her family pride, as did ol ' Madame Leffingwell ii her life-time. Despite of this, tiie wedded lovers arc happy. THE 'R WEDDING NIGHT. How it Was Spsat by an Unsopaistica ted Bridegroom. From the Cincinnati Enquirer. A bridal couple from one of our neighboring towns, recently married, went to the thriving city of Spring field, Ohio, on their bridal tour. They, arrived at the Lagonda House in that place about 0 o'clock in the evening. The bride waited in the ladies' reception room while herleige lord went to the ollice to register his name, and for the first tune to write with it "and wife." The polite clerk was notified of the fact that he was a fresh and newly married man, and the bridal chamber was accordingly assigned them. The groom retired from the office accompanied by a servant, and with his bonnie bride repaired to the bridal . room. In about half an hour the affable clerk at the "Lagonda" was surprised to see the groom walking in the office, and still more surprised to notice that he deliberately walked to an easy chair in a dark corner and seated himself with a disappointed but determined sort of an air4 The clerk waited for some minutes, all the time wondering if they could so soon have a family row. He watch ed the young husband closely, en deavoring to discover by his actions the cause of his so suddenly and so soon retiring from the chamber which Contained his fair young bride. But his watching was in vain. There sat the groom in the shadow of a pil- lar, quiet ahd calm. Finally the . . . clerk s curiosity became so great uua.u uc ucoeiujiueii to mierviw me young man about the matter. Ap proaching him in a respectful man ner, he said : "My friend, pardon me, but I don't understand why you have so soon left the bridal chamber. Has anything serious happened ?" "Oh, no," said the young fellow, "Jennie is an awful modest girl, and she said that she couldn't retire as long as I was in the room. I told her she would have to get used to it sooner or later, and she might as well commence the first night. But she said 'no,' and pleaded so hard, and with such love looks that I ' 't refuse her. and at her re ?0kH - - o room an,j came dovra (jtlust 1 left tuv . here' 1 1 ... t- Uv j , : 1 , . "Well, what a-e you gditlg to 3 r , said the eorous clerk. "You ddrit propose td sit here ll night, do you ?" "No, siree ! You bet I don't. Jen nie promised that as soon as she g"t undressed she would turn the gas low and then ring the bell. "As Sdort as I heard it I was to go up to my room. 1 will sit here, and it you will please tell me when the bell to my room rings I will be oblig ed, and 1 will go up." "All right," said the amused clerK, "when your bell rings I'll tell you," and so saying he left the newly made husband. Time rolled on, and an hour passed. The youug fellow anx iously came to the desk and inquired over and over again if "his bell hadn't rung," and when the answer came, "No. sir !" he lodked troubled and anxious. Finally he settled him self in an easy chair, and soon the ttierk heard his sonorous snores. Then riight passed and daylight came, but the bell f the bridal- chamber had not so much as tlUKiod once all night. At six o'clock tho daylight clerk came on duty, and the oroom, who had been sleeping souna- lv. was awakened. He rubbed his eyes yawned and stretched himself, and, in a contused manner, exclaim ed, "Where am 1 V1 Then, recollecting the conditional' affairss, he angrily said : "Look"e here, Mr. Clerk, why iu the devil didn't you wake me up wlnu that 'r bell rang?' Well, sir, it didn't ring. "Didn't ring? "No, sir." "Not ouce?" "No, sir ; not once." "What! not once during the whole night?" "No." "Well, that is darned strange. By gosh, I don't understand tuis busi ness. I'll go to the room aud see Jennie, and find out what the devil she means by keeping -ne down here all night." and off he staraed. About 12 o'clock lie entered the d'ni-ig room wb h bright eyed Jennie ou his arm, aed they bat down to dinvier. AHer toe repast Jennie went to her vomn, a id her hansome and now happy husband repaired to the office "to iexpViu things to tbs cleric." "Look he'-e," he said, in a confiden tial! one "don't say anything about this to any one, for Jenire feels awful bud about ; but the truth is, she went to turn the gas down low, and turned itout. This 'vighteued her so that she jumped into bed and pulled t'a covers over her head, and was afraid to ge- up agan to ring the bell, and besides, she didn't know where the bell was. Said jhe thought I'd came every minute, and waited until she t'clraslecp. Poor gH, sbe nearlv cried her eyes out abou iu I didn't like it much at first, out then she felt so nwful sor-y, aud was -so sweet and nice, and made it all rigj.it, you know; so T don t blame her. she said needn't leave the roo.m to-night, ani I don't propose t . ejfier, you bet.'

Gill Shorter, Governor of Ala. lion. Alexander II. Stephens, of Ga., says : Have derived some benefit from the use of Simmons Liver Regulator, and wish to give it a further trial. "The only Thing that never fails to ReUeve." I have used many remedies for Dys pepsia, Liver Affection and Debility, but never have found anything to benefit me to the extent Simmons Liver Regulator has. I sent from Min nesota to Georgia for it, and would send further for such a medicine, and would advise all who, are sim ilarly affected to give it a trial as it seems Hie only filing that never fails to relieve.
