The Legend of Bathurst,
BY SALLIE A. BROOK, OF VIRGINIA.
The sisteranxionsat his stay,
Said : “Father let me go!” and ere rejection
Os her suit could come, she with a slen
In her hand, tripped lightly down the dusty
Dusky stairs, across the snail encrusted paths,
And subterranean halls, with scarcely strength
To bear the fearful beating of her heart,
Down to the wine-cellar. Obtruding her
Small light, she cautious peered within, and
Stepped. A deadly faintness o'er her came,
Felt the earth around her reel! Her flicker
Light went out; aud in darkness thick as that
Which guilty Egypt knew, she sank to rise no
The father awed at her delay,
Impatient strode his broad, baronial halls,
And as he raised unto his lips, a glass
Os crystal water, iced, a sodden tremor
Shook his strong right hand, when down there
Crashed the goblet bright; at sound of which,
The mother came, and palsied too, stood ter
ror-mute, beside her 1 ord!
‘My sons!” he cried, "the strength
Os my old age ! My daughter! sunshine of
My woodland home !—Where are they ? Why
come they not 1”
And calling to a servant sharply bade:
“Go fetch a neighbor ! Grim death is surely
I feel it now in every nerve, that torturing
Thrills my frame; —and in my hoart—All
Righteous God, I am bereft!”
Clasping her husband
Feebly by tho knees, the mother slowly
Reeled, and fainting fell into his trembling
Like lightning flew the sable messenger
On young and sinewy steed—here there—for
Many a mile around, till all the country
Knew that very night, that dire distress
To Lord of Bathurst.
Friends straightway hasted
There, ere morn had thrown its sunshine
o'er the hills,
Aid found the mother prostrate in her grief,
And the proud father, like a maniac wild,
Tearing the air around with furious beats
And piteous cries: ‘-Hysons, my own brave
My daughter, fairest of all Virginia’s maids,
That I, to-morrow, was to giveaway—
The happiest bride Virginia ever
Why come they not 1 Why come—why coma
they not 1
At that day Science was not known as no’w
She is,—as handmaid faithful with the key
By which we may unlock the most of Nature’s
Intricacies,—but one there was, a neighbor,
Who, from the fathers story told in shreds,
Divined the cause why they no more return
And round the o!ld house prying, quickly
went, - ' —
And crashing out two windows, dingy with
Tho mould of years—too in the wine-cellar,
Toroh after torch threw down, w'hich fast as
Went out, nor gave a glimpse of what was
Torch after torch was thrown, until at length
A little flickering flame flashed up, and then
He knew the poison fiend had fainter grown.
Then swiftly round the house he came, aud
The dusky steps he went, and ladder slight,
Throngh subterranean halls, into the dark
Wine-cellar; and there upon the floor, while
Round were piled the casks untouched for all
Eighteen years, by brothers, sister, and the
Serving-man asleep in death! with scarce an
Impress of the icy touch that chilled the
Life-stream at its source, and froze and locked
Fountain tight, from every waiting vein.
There was a bridal still at Bathurst, bnt,
A bridal it was with death! Enshrouded
In her satin robe, with veil of richest lace,
Enwrought by fingers fair of Brussels’ girls,
Lay the young bride upon the nuptial conch,
With wreath of pearls upon her snow-white
And bracelets on her slender dimpled wrists,
And pendants dropping from her shell-like
Pure orient pearls that softly gleamed, and
With all the misty splendor of the moonlight
On the lake. And near her side by side—**
Her noble brothers lay, in dress, they shonld
Have to that other bridal worn, to witness
Os the vows the groom might take, to cher
Well for all of life—to love their sister,
With the love that passex all else know on
That bridegrotn came, with rosy visions play
Through his soul, at thought of jewel hel
Hide away within his heart of hearts, bnt,
As he came, before him on his route was
Benea th a sable pall, the casket dark
Which was to hold the ljght of all his life; ’
And like a mere machine when told, he cross
The threshold, op the oaken staircase went
Even to the bridal chamber, and there
Upon the nuptial conch, all draperied round
With curtains whs and sheer as gossamer,
Lay all that was, of his own peerless love.
A moment, dumb he stood, to live a century
Os woe ! Then bending o’er without a single
To cool the scorching beat that seared his
He clasped her to his heart, with burning
On her clay-cold lips, and witli his quiveriDg
To Heaven upraised, l.e shrieking, cried in
“Almighty God! though cursod and doomed
This earth—a desert now—alone!—alaue!—
By all that’s just and good in Thee, or by
The fiends that snatched her from my lon
She shall be mine!—be mine!— my wife, in
Then sank upon the floor like a young oak-tree
Prostrate and prone in all its kingly pride,
Before the lightning’s blast that rives and kills

With smiles aud thanks for all their care, he

And now beneath the eypress yew and willow,
With others thickly Hanking them around,

At a future day, some curious, generous

And clear and chisel out; and witness then
To my strange Btory will appear, and speak
Through tho dim tracery of a hundred years,
With added scores.
But Bathurst joys in a good and green old age.
Its form is all the same—the broad old halls—
The high peaked gables and the dormer lights.
The sloping roofs like shaggy eyebrows jut
ting out —
With mosses black and lichens grey, e ncrus
And towering high j above, the ancient oak-trees
Stand, like sentrijes all around.
Great trees, they were,
Before the house was built, aud with as glad
Thrill, they catch and dally with the wanton
That sweeps up from the Rappahannock’s tide,
As when that maiden fair, beneath them in
Her guileless girlhood played.
They say that ere
He buried them, the father, from his cellar
Drew out every cask of wine, of rare old wines,
Os hospitable boast and goodly cheer,
And poured them on the Bathurst lawn, a rich
And sweet libation to tho manes of

In subtle death. And too, I’ve heard it, said,
Within old Bathurst’s echoing halls, when
Golden October time is in, aud grapes
Hang mellow ripe and swoet, in purple clus
On the vine, and out, the bright young Au
Her silver sickle throws beside the blazing
Os evening’s lustrous star, that revels strange
Are held by spirits there. A youthful bride
Flits to and fro, in satin robe and veil
Os costly lace, and decked with virgin pearls
Os opalescent gleam, while in her haud
She holds a glass of wine; and as her eyes
All beaming glow with light—and radiant
Girlish joy, she beckons all around to drink
Her health. But as her friends in love
Stand, drinking, all, aud one with outstretch
Doth run to clasp her to his waiting heart.
She lifts.her hand and with a deprecation—
A gentle shake of her fair pearl-crowned head,
She stays his eager steps, and pointing up
Smiles. And then the phantom throng be
To move. Clouds of the rainbow’s hues roll up,
Instinct with light and life, and on them borne.
Until they reach mid-air, those figures ride;
When there —before an altar lily-decked,
And lighted up with stars like those that crown
The brow of clear December night—beside
Which stands an ancient priest with saintly
And oiad in snrplice like the misty white
Os April snow, with halo round his head
Os silvery beams—the happy nuptial vows
So rudely stayed on earth are blissful, sealed.
Once every year this spirit bridal scene
At Bathurst re-enacts ; with music strange,
\s if full, pulsing organ-chords were swept
By fingers of the winds, or harps were struck
By seraphs’ practiced hand", with angel choir.
And then tho old place settles gently down
To wonted q uiet. The yew and willow—
And the dark-fringed cypress, whisper o’er
The time-stained stones perhaps in gratulation.
The oak-trees court the zephyrs which come
From the river’s lapsing waves, and laughing,
Toss their hardy branches, making musie
Beneath their verdant, leafy cloak, nor
Ever saddened, but always with a cheerier
13my rustle to themselves, and sportive sing
The happy consummation of the spirit loves.
Those whom the gods love die youug.

Heavy Defalcation in the Savannah Custom
The Savannah Daily Advertiser of the
9th iustaut has the following :
We received yesterday from our
Washington correspondent, who is a
gentleman of high standing and favored
with peculiar facilities for procuring de
partment news, the following telegram,
which our subsequent investigation
proved to be true is every particular.
The dispatch says : “For some time past
the Treasury Department has had rea
son to suspect that the financial affairs of
the Savannah Custom House were not in
a satisfactory condition, and concluded
to set a watch upon those whose posis
tion enabled them to make away with
the funds. Report received here con
firms this suspicion, it being charged
that a defalcation has been discovered
amounting to eleven thousand dollars,
eight thousand of which are represented
by false vouchers issued to supply the
deficiency, and the balance by extra
charges made against merchants and
vessels not authorized by law.
“It is understood that a prominent par

purpose of raising funds to cover the de
The last number of Harper’s Sneak
ly—which, by the way, is the meauest
Radical sheet in existence—exults in
the fact that Jeff. Davis, Toombs, Ste
phens, and other rebel leaders, do not
accept the “New Democratic Depar
ture,” and says that -‘All these expres
sions are the signs of a deep and real
feeling, dangerous to the welfare of the
country, wholly confined to the Demos
And then, in almost the next seotence,
“If Jeff. Davis, and Toombs, and Ste
phens were all enthusiastic for the New
Departure, it would be a most suspicious
Now, what would this double insen
sate ass or this wretched refined rogue
have? If Jeff. Davis and Toombs were
all “for the New Departure, it would be
a most suspicious enthusiasm;” but as
they are all against, “their expressions
are the signs of a deep and real feeling,
dangerous to the welfare of the country.’
Nothing will suit Mr. Asinns, of Har

are brethren, rougish and silly as he is,
and determined, somehow or other, to
have Jeff. Davis and Toombs in a posi
tion where they will act as scarecrows to
prevent weak men from votiug the Dem
ocratic ticket. Fortunately, however,
the people of the North are Lcgiuning
to see that Toombs, Jeff. Davis and
other Southern extremists aro the real
allies of the Northern Republicans, and
are beginning to think for themselves
upon these subjects instead of taking the
penny-a liner opinions of such would-bo
wiseacres and literary frauds as the wri

The Suez Canal, it is asserted, is fil
ling up with sand, and in confirmation
of this roport a letter is printed in the
Loudon Times from the captain of a
screw steamer, who says that, with a
draft of 17J feet forward and 204 feet
aft, his steamer grounded SI times iu the
canal. 'He also says that for the last 15
miles the steamer was in tow oi a tng,
with two pilots in charge, and notwith
standing these advantages, she grounded
seven tirnos. The steamer was 72 hours
in passing through the cannl. The Eng
lish director of the Suez Canal, who had
announced in the Times that measures
had been adopted to maintain ihe canal
at its present minimum depth of 26 Eng
lish feet of water, replied to the letter
of the captaiD, asking the name of the
screw steamer which bad encountered so
many difficulties iu passing through the
canal, so that he might make inquiries
into the affair, and prevent a recurrence
of similar delays in case of other vessels.
In regard to the version of the affray
between Messrs. Hill and Yancey in the
Confederate Senate, Mr. Stephens, in
the Atlanta Sue, has this to say:
“We give our readers the foregoing
article, as we Bee it in several of our ex
changes, but in doing so we feol con
strained to state, that we have good rea
sons for saying that the account therein
given es any personal rencontre that
may have occurred between the parties
referred to, in the Confederate States
Senate, is not correot. It is but a cari
cature representation of the facts so far
as relates to the conduct of both of the
Mr. Yanoev is not in life to speak for
himself, Whether Mr. Hill feels at lib
erty to speak upon the subject at all, or
not, we do not know. Bat in behalf of
both we feel it a doty to say what we
have said in relation .to the article, as it
is now going the rounds of the press,
and is calculated to prodace very erro
neous impressions.'* A, H. S.
A delegation from the South, who
called upon President Grant at Long
Branch, returned to Washington very
much disgusted. His Excellency, it
seems, refused to see them, bat gave
them to understand that his bouse at
Long Branch was a private residence,
and that fdr official’ business they'most
take their chances of catching him at
Washington The delegation, it is,un
derstood, came from, an impoverished
portion of tho South, and had no pres
ents to offer. Nor was there any money
in their mission. •
