And so one calm, June night, w hen
Mho moonlight slept upon the lenws
and flowers the good old minister,
who had known and loved Madeleine
C...., ! -, Co n.,,' uii.iT.-ii !l liw. tuilfirm
, . , m i i r . ,! ded giving her the slightest opportu
words to which Madeleine listened, . h " f 1
. i , nit y to converse with him. And il he
with a down cast countenance, but a J
. , , i ! i had, what could sue say to hiinr
hannv heart, and then, the good old i i , . .
' , ., , ... , . .. I' or more than two years lie had not
man, ooking fixedly, yet still kindly
' , r . . 1 spoken to her one pleasant word. Mie
at him who held the band ol her who ' 1 .
had first been pronouneed his wife
added: May God deal will) you as you
deal with her." And the lips ol him
on whom he looked, responded fervent
ly, and without faltering, "Amen."
How noble seemed he then to the
trusting heart of .Madeleine. There
was that in her nature that required
something to reference, as well as
love. The man, who could appropri
ate all her affections, must be some
thing more than an ordinary mortal,
lie must not. think, feel, and act like
, common men he must be himself.
i She had found sueh a one. She eoulii
not only lean upon him with the ful
lest confidenoe that he would never
prove to her a broken reed, but she
could look up to him as her instructor,
yield to him as her superior to guide
and direct her future pathway, ap
preciate the rich and varied resources
of his fine intellect mil acquirements
and venerate the pure anil lofty integ
rity of his character.
The refined and intellectual woman
requires all this in whom she 0! that I
could, say chooses accepts as a com
panion and life-guide, and if it is not
so, her heart must pine for the nour
ishment it needs to supply all its
wants, and too often, if much is lack-
' ing, perishes from slow starvation; for
the heart must have its aliment as
well as mind or body.
A few weeks pass and Madeleine,
- or Mrs. Raymond, (as we perhaps'
ought now to call her,) and her hus
band still linger at the old homestead,
for they will never leave that suffering
mother till her feet have crossed the
dark and rapid stream that parts the
heavenly land from ours. Till the
broken heart has ceased to beat.
Long and earnestly had she prayed
that she might be spared to see the
hope of better days brightning the
horizon of the unknown future for her
darling daughter, und as if her faint-!
ing strength had only been vouchsafed j
her to witness the accomplishment of j
this, one desire, she now drooped as a
faded rose, one petal after another,
when the summer zephyrs wave the
sustaining bough. Each day she was
' weaker, each day nearer Iter final
home, in that happy land, "where the
vieked cease from troubling and the
weary are at rest."
Jt is all over. The grave hath
yawned for its victim, received it and
closed its remorseless jaws again, till
it shall need another.
Madeleine's grief was deep and
touching, and yet tempered with res
ignation; for she knew that death was
gain to the pure, tried spirit that had
entered the confines of the eternal
world. There was, too, a supporting
arm on which to lean in her sorrow, a
Stout heart on which to reposo in her
bereavment, which, though tender and
delicate as a woman's in all its sensi
bilities, was yet strong to sustain and
comfort. There is no more need now
to linger. The morrow will behold
them on their way to her distant home
in a land of strangersto her hus
band's land her husband's home .
They are sitting together on the old
fashioned nofa in the little parlor of
tier father's dwelling, as they will ner
' i 1
er. Nit there ugain, Madeleine and her
noblo husband. The trunks stand
corded in the passage, ready for the
journey, Everything is prepared for
their departure. To leave a father's
roof forever, as one's home, under the
most favorable circumstances, when
he has been all that a father should
he, where a fond and loving mother
will watch over your memory there,
and brothers and sisters often, often
(peak your name, and all watch ea
gerly and anxiously for your return,
is terrible, aye, even like severing the
chords that bind to life, but what must
it be to turn from it, blackened and
scathed by the memory of trial, suffer
ing, wrong, insult and privation, know
ing there will be none left behind lo
which the fond affections can turn
with the pleasing consciousness oflov
ing and being beloved?
They had been t alking of her fath
er, and Madeleine's tears flowed free
ly at the thought of part ing with him.
Since her mother's death he had seem
ed moody and gloomy -had shunned
all companionship, walking here and
there, restlessly, as if his mind were
ill at ease. If Madeleine had spoken
to him he had answered briefly as he
could and turned away, and ifherhus-

seemed to wish to be undisturbed, to
be permitted to indulge his reflections
of what ever character they might
be, unmolested. It was dreadful to
think of leaving him without one
word of kindness, one expression ol
allc.etiou, but he hud studiously uvoi-

sticngth of your fiiial love and the
purity uf your intentions he will, I
am sure, now that his feelings are.sol
tened by this recent bereavement and
the thoughts of your departure, be htd
to listen to your soft pleadings. It is
only the strong man's pride that pre
vents his coming to you. His way is
left unto him desolate, his home in the
morning will be deserted.'
"What shall 1 say, my dear hus
bantlf" and the pleading eyes of the
speaker looked fully into his face.
"Just what your feelings shall
prompt, but tell him, dearest," and the
fond arm that encircled her drew her
more closely .to his breast. "Tell him
that wc are going avvay to our far-off
home, that you that I, ask him to go
with us, if he will; that we should
have dune, it before if he had not so
carefully avoided us, or if he cannot
go now, to coine any time when he
wishes, and that we will do everything
we can to make him happy. A child's
duty totvards a parent, no matter how
greatly that parent may have erred,
can never cease. Two wrongs ban
never make a right. When you, dear
Madeleine, became my wife, your
parents became my parents. 1 trust

that had so divine I what her own
heart would have said to t he lone par-

to leave in the old homestead deso
late. And M i l.' i me . h! in o her lath
er and Inc. I io talk to him, but the
chilling reserve lie manifested kept
her for r-ottii! time, at. a distance. Site
could not get near his heart, i hough
he listened to all she h id to say, but
refused lo accompany ihem to Mr.
Uaymntid's home, as he called it. He
was going to wind up business, he
said, si 11 everything nnd then tr.vel
awhile. M iy be he should conn and
see them some lime, lie hoped they
would do well and be happy, "And,
Madeleine, child, may be I haven't
always done by you as 1 ought. Ifl hav
en't, 1 hope, you'll overlook it JJut
I've had much to perplex me, much,
that neither you, nor any one else
could understand. Women don't
know everything about men's affairs.
May be you'll never see me again,
after you are gone, Madeleine, and if
there's anything in the old home you
want, you can bare it, I'll have any
article you fancy to have, boxed and
sent to you. There's nobody but you
to care for these things now she'x gone,'
and ho drew his coat-sleeve hastily
across his eyes but not quick enough
to hide from Madeleine the tears that
were moistening them.
And they were gone, Madeleine
and her husband, and, except him, she
was alone in the wide, wide, but not
dreary world, for his smilo and his af
fection made a constant sunlight for
her life.
It was a pleasant home to which
he look her, a rambling, old, brown
house, with low sloping eaves, under
which the spring-birds loved to build
their nests, and quaint, old-fashioned,
rustic frames before the win
dows and around tho yard, covered
with climbing roses and twining vines
and majestic, forest trees, intermixed
with cherry, pear and apple, shading
the lovely roof. It had noprctensionsto
style in its appearance, but much of
comfort. It looked as it was a home.
The yard was so large, so green, so
grassy, so stocked with beautiful and
fragrant blossoming plants and shrubs,
the Lilac, tho Snowball, the Althea,
with clambering Jessamine, Clematis,
Honeysuckle, and such a wealth of
lioses. It was so pleasant, loo, stand
ing as it did, where two roads crossed
that it could front in two different
ways, seeming, on that account, lobe
soiree and uiieonfined. It looked as
if it hail iilnui'l iuwi'(i('i1 the tinwi'i'
of locomotion, llmt quaint old house, j
and wandering about in search of a I
place lo locate, had stopped into that ;
pleasant, grassy yard, and finding it
exactly .suited to its ideas ofwhat was j
appropriate, in its .surroundings, had I
settled itself down quietly for life.
No Madeleine, fell, and so she ex
pressed herselflu her husband as they j
uppiuaehed and saw the dear old i
place from the carriage windowsj
Wlticti carriage, old June having been
duly apprised of their coming, had
had in readiness for the last two days
at a town some t wenty miles distant,
so the moment their feel were on the
wharf no hack should be entered by
"nnisa"' lillil the hew "missus,'' but
the old family vihickle should take
them directly on I he journey.
And a' happy home it proved to
Madeleine. Could .-he have forgotten
her dead mother, whose life
I been
so u retched, could slit; have ceased
to think of her unhappy, wandering
father, nnd could she no longer have
dreaded the sudden termination of that
life of lives lo her, she would have
had no bitter drop in her earthly cup.
Hut memory would not be silenced.
She would tell her tales of the past,
i.nd Madeleine could not, but regret.
And then, when the spasm of sudden
pain passed over that dear face, with
alternate flashings of crimson, suc
ceeded by an almost deathly paleness,
when the chest heaved, and the veins
on neck and forehead were swollen
with the accumulated blood, then
Madeleine herself felt the sharp pangs
of dissolution rending her own soul.
Had not it been fur tjiese things she
would have been too happy.
In process of time a son and daugh-1
ter were born to her, and they grew
to play on the green grass of the yard, j
to hide and set k one another behind j
the clumps of twisted vines, or among j
the arbors of the fine old garden it
the back of the bouse, or sit ia the
tloor-way and mingle their sweet,
prattling voices with the merry songs
of the birds beneath the sheltering

home, no new hcail-soriow scaled
down upon it.
Hut the old house was going to de
cay. The weather-boarding was
worm eaten and warped, the window
sills were rotted away by tho moisture
setting on them from the rains of many
years and the thresholds of the doors
were neat ly gone. So it was most
thoroughly repaired. 1 wo rooms
it-f.rn 'i.l.l.il na flmmlifirt.. nliil m..li.'ii i
improvements changed in a great
measure the appearance of tho pre
cious dwelling. It was all furnished.
Everything was done about it. There
was nothing left to require renova
tion, cither in the dwelling itself, the
fences, or the outbuildings.
Up to this, Madeleine's married life
had been of more felicity than is usu
ally awarded to mortals. A noble,
devoted husband, too beautiful and
lovely children, respectful andj
obedient servants, and enough of this
world's goods to exempt from anxiety
for the future, and yet not enough to
burden ilieir possessor what could
she ask for more? She felt that she
had need of nothing more and fully
enjoyed the blessings shed upon her
pathway, rendering to him who had
so ordered her ways in mercy, the
homage of a grateful heart.
Ten years had rolled away ten
such blissful years when the great
heart-shadow, that had walked side
by side with her since she became a
wife, wrapped her in its almost crush
ing folds. Madeleine had prayed
God, many times in the silence of her
chamber, that when it came, when the
light of her life must, be quenched in
darkness when the final summons,
she had so long dreaded, should beck
on from her side heronly earthly coun
sellor, friend and guide, it might not
come to him when absent from her.
She had agonized, as it were before
the Father of mercies, to grant her
this petition, that she might bend her
ear for his last faint words, catch the
last departing sigh, and close the dear
eyes that never looked on her but in
kindness and alleetion.
Her prayer was granted. He wa
kened her one night with a catching
of his breath and astruguldto articu
late her name. With dilliculty he re
plied to her exclamation of dismay
and sudden terror. "Ihin't be alarm
ed dearest, 1 feel so bad." Her arm
was round him lo raise and support
him her lips was pressed to the no
ble brow and when she raised her
head she felt tin; hand she had seized
uiicla.'p its hold on hers, a slight rat
tleiu liie throat, a tremor of the whole
frame, and all was over.
Alone, in the silent ni:;ht, with her
dead husband, she felt no terror, but
the floodgates of her griefs were
opened, and all the past, came thi'ong
iiur up with its dire, dread iceollec
tions, lo rend and torture her sull'er
ing soul. Drotherless, sislerless, or

its own healing balm. She had so
long yielded even her inmost thoughts
to his caul rol, her conduct had been
so long regulated by sueh entire desire
to please him, to be worthy of his af
fection, that such motives came to her
aid. even now, unawares, and enabled
her, after the first outburst of sorrow,
with a culm and quid manner to en
dure all the ngony of this great and
almost crushing grief. His wile, the
mother of his children, must not prove
unworthy of fhe name she bore.
This was the feeling that helped to
bear her up, and yet she was not for
getful of a Higher power than man's
lo which she might apply for aid. It.
was :i terrible struggle to kiss the hand
that took from her her only earthly
stay, her only companion, her only
friend. Jt was not thai poverty v;u
before her, to gnaw away her heart
strings one by one in the struggle to
supply food and eioliiing for her chil
dren, but it was her loneliness, her ut
ter desolation of spirit, she so deeply
Hut. a mind governed by i ight prin
ciple:: will soon turn away from una
vailing sorrow, and find its best re
source against a hopeles:; grief in ap
plying ilsclf with more titan usual
care to (he discharge of (lie duties
which remain to be perlonaed. And
such a one was Madeleine's. Every
thing about her household soon moved
on in it:; wanted order. Left by the
will !' her husband sole controller of
his properly, and guardian of his chil
dren, she resolved site would never
prove mi worthy of such imboimdcd
confidence. And so s he made it a con
stant study to know how to perform
all that theso things should require of
her in such a way to meet tho ap
proval of her own conscience, and
secure the approbation of him, whoso
praise had ever been of more value
to her than that of any other human
being, if- as some believed, his spirit,
from another world, could look down
upon the dear ones left behind.
Fourteen months of widowhood
and bereavement had passed. The
widow's weeds were gradually being
supplanted by brighter and more
cheerful colors, for Madcleiim felt that
her duties were not to the dead, whom
she could no longer beneit, but to the
living whom sho could, nnd she would
not sadden Iho buoyancy of child
hood's happy sp''t by gloom, of ei
ther dress or manner. MadelcirTe
found much pleasure in the instruc
tion of her children, in forming their
habits and manners and in reading,
talking, ivalkingand riding with them.
Her mind, in this way, soon recovered
tho balance it had lost during tho first
few weeks of her bereavement, and
she felt to submit to tho will of him
who does not willingly nfllict the chil
dren of men, and no longer, because
one blessing, one gratification, one
desire was denied her, refused the
many others which were lavished up
on her with a liberal hand.

Dear Gazelle :
On Friday morning last, under the
kind care of Col. Sands, of the Nash
ville and Chattanooga Railroad, did
your roaming correspondent reach
this beautiful little "city upon ahiJI,M
this romantic stepping-stone to the
far-stretching, heaven-towering Cum

in the excellent hotel of Mrs. Sims, and
meeting here with many good friends
made in days ofye a gone, my time
has been pleasantly employed. In
fact, old friend Gazette, of all the
heautfu! and attractive towns within
