CHAPTER ll—Continued. Brief and blissful were the days that followed. Maude seemed to herself to be living through some beautiful fairy dream ; Henri was scarcely ever absent from her side, and Rose having too much tact to make a third in their walks and rides, it was as secluded and romantic as though they were •‘ln Sicilia’s ever blooming stiade.” But political crisis will not wait on lovers’ leisure, and ere the honey moon was over, South CaVolina had seceded from the Union, and called on all her sister States to follow her lead.* Ii was with a changing cheek that Captain de Caroll read the announce ment one morning in the “Richmond Examiner.” “I must delay no long er now !” he exclaimed, and laying his finger on the paragraph, placed the paper before his wife’s eyes. She only looked up into his face with an expression of mute, be seeching anguish. “I must leave you to-day, my soul,” he said. “Oh Henri!” And her cold fin gers closed tightly over his. “You would not have your hus band a dishonored man, my own Maude ?” “Dishonored? never!” And all the spirit of the “old Dominion” flashed, in that instant, from her deep blue eyes. “I will help get you ready at once.” “Noble girl!” said Rose, warmly. “Here’s my Spartan wife,” whis pered Henri, drawing her closer to him, “I will go forth now to battle for my countiy’s rights,, but when the war is ended, and I come home covered wilh glory, perhaps a gen eral, Mignon —,your father will then no longer refuse to receive me as his son-in-law.” Thus he caressed and encourag ed, while, with pale visage but un complaining lips, she packed his valise and performed other little of fices of love. The hour for departure came all too soon. “Keep up heart, dear love," he murmured, While shower ing kisses on lip, cheek and brow, “It will not'be for long; I shall re turn as soon as I have shaken off Un cle Sam’s shackles, and then my heart will be lighter. Au.revoir my peri.” And with a final embrace, be sprang into the saddle and gal loped of! in the direction of the near est station. She stood leaning on the little wicket gate, looking after him; and her heart seemed to stand still when the sound of his horse’s hoofs were lost in the distance. “Oh, Heaven ! all the light will die out of my life until he return,” she moaned, bury ing her face in her hands, and sink ing on her knees on the ground, “Until he return!” CHAPTER m. The Angel of the Brigade. Child-bride, there is a lie upon thy soul! She returned to her father’s bouse the day after her husband’s depar ture ; but neither by word or look did she betray to any one her alter ed position; and Colonel Arlington never dreamed that the blushing maiden who had left her home little more than a fortnight since, was now returned to it a wife. The girl of seventeen longer a child, but a woman, capable of concealment; ready to do and to endure. ••* • - * Three weeks passed, and there was no news of Captain de Caroll. Maude's eyes grew hollower, and r there was a false ring in her once joyous laugh. What she suffered, none could tell; she confided in no one, but “God knows—and He alone— The utmost hell ot the deceitful heart.” Three months passed: and still no letter, no message, no tidings whatever of the absent one. Maude’s internal anguish of suspense became, at times, almost insupportable. Her health visibly declined, and her fa ther’s anxiety was awakened on her account. But still she must bear her burden alone. The mask could not be laid aside. Concealment was more than ever essential, now that torturing doubts of her husband’s fidelity began to creep into her brain. Col. Arlington’s words were con stantly ringing in her ear: “He is a stranger, a Frenchman; and we know nothing of him further than his relationship to Mrs. Rulhven.” A man of her father’s years must cer tainly be belter acquainted with men and the world than a totally inex perienced young girl like herself; and might it not be that she had in deed “given the world for love?” Then she would reject the idsa with indignant scorn, and bitterly re proach herself for having harbored, for an instant, such unworthy sus picions. But sometimes, when she was wandering aimlessly to and fro in the gallery, where hung the por traits of all her proud old ancestors, the thought of her being a forsaken bride, or deceived maiden, nearly maddened her. How they would curse her, “those haughty dead,” could they know what dishonor she had brought upon the name ! Mrs. Ruthven was absent, having joined her husband in Richmond, and—3trange though it may seem— her departure was a great relief lo Maude. She had seen Rose but once since Captain de Caroll went away, and she had, on that occasion, ex pressed great surprise and dismay at his not writing; but could give no explanation of, or consolation for, the circumstance. Thus, Maude felt that it was better for her to take up her dear burden and bear it in secref. Beneath her fragile exteri or, lurked a prodigious spirit; and her youth, also, was a great advan tage. This, her first love, was fresh and strong ; and under circumstan ces to which a woman of maturer years and experience might have succumbed, faith and hope sustained her. It must eventually be explained, she continually told herself, when the doubts assailed her mind; and put all her trust in Time, the magk cian whose wand was expected to change the desolate mourning house of her heart into a place of joy. But it was weary, waiting. •'* * * • Two years passed and the events that marked their course must be briefly recapitulated. It behooves me not lo enter into t|ie details of the war, for abler pens than mine have already depicted the desolation that swept over the land, “the wreck of reason, and the waste of life,” the ravaging of Southern homes and the complete ruin in which the whole Southern country was involved; and I have to deal only wilh the charac ters in this story. Immediately up on the commencement of hostilities, Colonel Arlington volunteered, was placed in command of a regiment, and fell at Cheat Mountain. A short time after tfieir bereave ment, Maude and her little brother, Roland, (who was then just sixteen) were one night roused from siurftber by a bright, lurid glare shjniqg into their windows. Maude sprang from bed, and hurrying to her brother** room, found that he, also, was up. They dressed themselves hastily; and while so doing, old NeHfej their nurse, ran stealthily up the back stair-case and came into Maude’s room. “Oh, Missie,” she said, trembling all over, “You jis git yo lings toged* der, bof on you, an’ come ’long wid me, you and Mass Roly. De Yan kees is on de place now, and dem black debbil ot nigger is set fire to barn and all de fence. . Make a heap o’ hurry chile!” And collecting a lew articles pf clothing together in a bundle, and taking Maude’s jewel box and purse, she went to Roland’s room. “Now, here, Mass Roly,” she said, “you jis pit on my apron and shawl; nobody is goin to trouble ole ooman like as dey will young gentleman,” and without waiting for his assent, she arrayed him in the aforesaid garments; and thus dis guised, he, with his sister followed her cautiously down the back stairs and out of the house. Circumstan ces seemed to favor their escape; there was no moon, and a large num ber of the negroes, carrying torches, were gathered in front of the house. Undiscovered they made their way toward a secluded woodland path; and just as they were entering it, two horses ran past, with their manes flying wild, and evidently in a great state of terror. “It is Mabel and Rollo,” whisper ed Maude; and looking back, she saw thal the stable was in flames. “The hoises would be of great service to ns,” said Roland, and he called softly to Rollo, who, recog* nizing his master’s voice, turned round and came up to him ; seem ing, by a remarkable sagacity, to comprehend their danger, be did not neigh, but suffered Roland lo mount him. Mabel followed his example, and Maude, seizing the flowing mane, sprang lightly on her back. “Which route shall we take ?” asked Roland. “To General Lee’s headquarters,” replied his sister; and they urged the horses forward. It was bard riding, barebacked and wilh no bet ter bridles than tho halters; but a merciful Providence guided the steeds and sped them on their flight. They would have taken old Nellie with them, but she preferred to re main, and there was no time to be lost in persuading. They had not proceeded a mile when they heard the sound of distant shouting; and pausing for an instant, on a slight eminence which commanded a view of the grounds, they perceived that the dwelling house had been, fired. Maude’s “heart grew hot within her” at the sight. The graud old pile, where generations of Arling tohs had lived, feasted and ruled, like the old baronial monaichs of Feudal Times, was now one mass of rocking flames; and around it, in wild carnival, danced the dusky de mons who, but one week before, bad sworn eternal fidelity to tbe orphan brother And sister. With a sharp, suppressed ory of pain, Maude turn ed her head away, and urged Mabel rapidly forward. They rode all uight, and early next morning came in sight of the Confederate camp at Valley Mountain. Roland threw himself from the horse, and tearing ofi his disguise, lifted bis balf-faint ing sister in his arms and-placed her on her feet. They had made the best of their time. and both horses and riders were terribly jaded. Ma bel and Rollo were given in charge to a soldier, who respectfully offered his services; while another conduct ed them to the General’s tent. Tbe pale, beautiful girl, dressed in deep mourning, with her golden hair dishevelled and her large eyes hollow from sorrow and unrest, would have inspired compassion ev en in a more rugged breast than that of tbe chivalrous Lee; and tears rose to the soldier’s as he ex tended bis hand in welcome. Their situation was briefly explained, then Roland applied for admission into the army. “Willingly,” replied the General, “and I doubt not that tbe son of tbe gallant and lamented Colonel Ar lington will soon prove himself wor thy of his father’s sword." Tbe youth flushed delightedly, as he bqwed bis acknowledgment of this gracious speech; then Lee turnedtoMaude. “Acd you, madam, what wjjl yon do ?” . . “ What I am going m ask. Gener al,” Ae replied, speaking in a low, steady voice, “will doubtless seem strange to you; but my tocher is everything in the world to sm. and good bersp and 1 can make ourselves usebil in otiboosand uray*. L might carry dispatches, and feel tbat 1 conld render efficient service as a No. 5. spy ; —Oh General, let me be with Roland The General looked grave. “Have you no relations with whom you might stay he asked. “I have an aunt in Richmond,” she replied, “but oh, sir, do not sep arate me from my brother; we are all in all to each other. Just try me for a month in camp, and if I am in the way at all, I promise to go to Richmond and slay there ; but only give me a trial 1” “Are you aware, Miss Arlington,- that you would encounter great dan gers, and endure many hardships?” “I am prepared to brave all dan gerand share all hardship,” she an* swered resolutely ; and it was final ly agreed upon that she should be appointed regimental courier, with the rank of lieutenant. The brother and sister shortly af terward, accompanied General Lee to the Kanawha region, whither he went to relieve Wise and Floyd; and Roland, who, of course, entered as a private, was, in his first battle, promoted to the rank of sargeant. Maude, also, proved that her boast had not been a vain one; for she be came an important adjunct to the ar my. On her beautilul Mabel, who was presented by the officers with a handsome side-saddle and belong ings, she trequently rode whole days at a time, carrying dispatches, and really played the part of spy in a most masterly and ingenious man ner, often going into the enemy’s lines, disguised, and gleaning valua ble scraps of information relative to his movements. Her favorite dis guise was that of a little country girl, with tattered sun bonnet and bare feet, selling fruit; but she some times attired herself as a rustic lad, and in both characters, was most successful in escaping suspicion. A portion of her time was spent in Richmond, but she was a great deal in the camp. The sight of her, mounted on her elegant mare, and dressed in her sable habit, (for she continued to wear mourning all thro’ the war) with her golden hair and large spirituelle eyes, so beautiful and fearless, seemed to inspire the soldiers, who named her “the Angel of the Brigade,” and regarded her with a sentiment approaching deifi cation. And Maude, with her dark sor row locked in her heart, found in this active and adventurous life, the best safe-guard against corroding thoughts. An ordinary domestic existence, or the mournful routine of a hospital could never have afforded this stimuls to he/ brain and stav ed off the madness which would, un doubtedly, otherwise, have obtained possession of it. And thus the years fled. (To be continued.) * - m , ,- a <? The Northern press is filled with* the disgusting details of the trial of Laura Fair, whokiiled one Griuen den, her paramour, in California some lime ago. The defence is mental aberration, and from a medical point of view it can ne longer be a matter of wonder that Mrs Pair killed "Col onel Crittenden. For a person in the condition in which she is repre sented to have been when she com mitted the deed, murder or suicide was an apparently inevitable alter native. That she chose the former was a sort of constitutional accident; According to the testimony of Dr. Lyiord, sne was at the time “amemc,” and had also “retrocedent gout,” “metatasis,” “dismenorrhea,” Mcata menicals” and “insomanis,” besides being subject to “idiosyncractes.” Any person laboring under su<&% complication of polysyllabic disord ers could find relief in nothing short of murder, and it the j[ury does pot acquit Mrs. Fair on ibis testimohy it will be because they are niorq in telligent than most juries,* jl)*.
