teeth. "And, more, she is aware of the

"A Mr. Bonton, from Philadelphia, I
believe," answered Madeline Robsart,
looking up at her companion with a faint
smile which told how she enjoyed the pain
her words had caused him. ‘ 1 'Tis said he
is a veritable Croesus, on the Atlantic coast,
and moreover, Mr. Comstock, it is asserted
that Ulalume’s eyes were the magnets that
drew him thither."
Ashley Comstock did not reply, but kept
his handsome eyes fixed upon the twain
who were, moving from the spacious par
lors towards the arbored gardens, attached
to the stately mansion.
He did not aeetn to hear his name.
Madeline pronounced it again, when he
turned upon her like a man suddenly ■
awaking from a feverish dream.
"Hindi we, too, not enjoy the fragrance
of the flowers? ’Tis so very close here,
and without the breeze that sweeps shore
ward from the bosom of the Pacific, will!
cool the brow ao fevered now. ’’
He said something which the woman
did not catch, extended his arm, and thej
left the parlors.
It was after the unmasking of Ulalnmo
Cowden’* guests. The king with his face
uncovered walked beside the goldei haired
troubsdor; and the queen of the genii sat
beside her brigand chief, and drank love
from his dark eyes.
Clalume Cowden had entered ipm her
nineteenth year, and the bal masque had
been given by her father in her honor.
The elite of San Francisco tilled the
gorgeously appointed rooms of tl*j bank
er's house, and nothing had occurred to
mar the festivities of the hour.
But the storm cloud was hovering over
the bright scenes, and its wrath dtscended
upon the fairest, and purest, and the best
before the roseate dawn of day.
The richly trellised gardens swarmed
with pleasure seekers, and ashly Comstock
and hia friend found no little difficulty in
findings secluded nook. For himself, he
wished to roam up and down the walk; but
Madeline suggested a spot where sh< could
tell the handsome man something which,
she said, had long lain upon her heart
At last they found an unoccupied arbor,
and upon one of the rustic seats Ashley
Comstock threw himself with a sigh.
"Mr. Comstock," began Madeline, at
his side, “the most impertinent of ques
tions hangs on my lips. I can keep it
back no longer, and I feel that while you
will forgive me for its utterance, you will
answer truly, for the sake of the friend
ship that has existed between us so long."
At another time Ashley Comstock might
hare toyed with her words, and put an
hundred humorous little interrogatives at
her before she could prooeed; but now he
was silent, and his face wore a stem seri
ousness when he raised his head, and, in
the faint moonlight, metier eye.
"You know, Madeline,” it was not Miss
Robsart now; they were beyond the con
ventionalities of the ball room, "you
know I have forgiven a thousand and one
silly questions of yours in time gone by,
and I would, disgrace a precedent not to
forgive in the future. ”
Thus encouraged Madeline Robsart,
with a long drawn breath, advanced.
"I will question plainly,” she said,
"without prelude, and sly allusipns. Do
you love Ulalume?”
Ashley Comstock started at the words;
but a moment later looking the questioner
square in the face, he answered the little
‘ ‘Have you told her so?”
" I have, Madeline,” and his face lit up
with a pride which answered the next
question that fell mechanically as it were
from the woman’s lips. i
“And what did she tell you?”
“She is mine I”
The slowly spoken words fell npon
Madeline Rohnert's ears like the notes of
fate, and for a moment she did not speak.
Rhe looked into Ashley Comstock's face
like one astonished by the sudden descent

of a thunderbolt from a clear sky; but
when she did speak it was merely to say: '
"Ashley, I hope you are a happy man.”
"If I am not, it is my own fault, Made
line," he answered. Butwhall we not go ?
The promenaders are re-seeking the man
sion, and we must not be absent."
She seemed eager to lcr.ve Ce spot, and
a few moments later they stood in the
dazsiing glare of the golden chandeliers

the beautiful lips almost bloodless, and the

The parents of each reveled in wealth, and
their daughters, in consequence thereof,
had been thrown often into each other's
society. Their passions flowed into dif
ferent channels. Madeline was wild, im
pulsive and rash. Ulalume calm, forgiv
ing, and as gentle us the ring dove. A
transcendent virtue beamed in her eye and
shod its fragrance upon all who came in
contact with her.
Suddenly the two beautiful women, the
wild and the gentle, disappeared from the
parlors, and the merriment continued un

“Shall I accept Hardinge's invitation ?
Were I to follow the dictates of the
stricken, the world-aick heart, that throbs
in my breast, I would seek some shore,
far from this, wildly lashed by the billows
of the Pacific, and there in the solitude of
exile, end the days over which the veil of
sorrow has been so suddenly thrown. Now,
like the Egyptian Queen, I have immortal
longing in me; but life, life! excitement! or
I cross the threshold of the mad house, and
perish beyond the pale of reason. Yes, yes,
I will go to Hardinge. I will see the mys

Thus spoke Ashley Comstock as ho
stood before the window of his chamber
and looked down upon the busy street.
Thut day he had buried the only woman
he ever loved, and now the evening
shadows told him how desolate he was,
how utterly alone in the world. The secret
of his engagement with Ulalume he had
oonflded to but a single person, Madeline
Robsart; but many who watched him
while the clods fell upon the coffin thought
that the beautiful dead was something to
him —something dearer than a friend.
He had not seen Madeline since the
tragic termination of the ball; he did not
want to see her, for when he spoke her
name he shook his head dubiously, as if

Comstock left the grand hotel and ordered
a carriage, which bore him to an unpreten
tious house in a street where but few gas
jets shed their mellow light. Alighting,
he paid the yellow Jehu, and soon found
himself in a small room in the second story
of the building.
The room gave evidence of being the
abode of a medical student, for skeletons,
chemical aparatus, and volumes of medi
cal lore, displayed themselves, and a dis
secting table occupied a prominent po
"I’ve been wishing for you, Ashley,”
said a prepossessing young man, advanc
ing from a lounge as Comstock entered.
“I’ve secured a noble subject for to-night,
and am expecting John with it every mo
ment. And, by the way, Ashley, it is a
peculiar subject—very beautiful. I have
seen the young lady in life, and were I not
the dear one of a little woman down at
Los Angelos I should have fallen in love
with her myself.”
Ashley Comstock was not in a jocular
mood that night. His heart, his thoughts
were in a new-made grave, and he could
not-tear them away, though he tried to for
hia own sake.
QUITMAN, GA„ SATURDAY, JULY 2(5, 1873.
Butler Hardingo, the Htudent, an en
thusiast in his profession, noticed his
friend’s demeanor, and tried to draw him
! out, but signally failed. Ashley Comstock
would not relate the story of his sorrow; it
(van sacred; it was truly his.
Thus several hours flew by, and at
length a low rap carried the student to
" ’Tis John, at lost!" he cried, and open
ing the door a black-featured fellow en
tered and placed a heavy body, enveloped
in a dark sack, upon the table.
"Now,” said Hardingo, turning from
the door, which he had locked behind the
dark man. "Now. Ashley, I will proceed
to lay bare to you a woman's heart, with
all its coquetry, all its deception.”
Ashley Comstock heard him, bat did
not turn from the only window that look
ed down into the street; and with a mut
tered anathema at his disinterestedness,
the student untied the sack, and drew
from it the white-robed corpse.
"Heavens! that such beauty should die?”
he exclaimed, gazing upon the cold face on
the table. ‘ 'Ashley!"
Then the young man turned, and step

and taking out a scalpel. "Comstock

“Hhe was more than a friend!” cried
Comstock, suddenly springing forward as
the student's knife approached the fair,
white face. “Butler Hardinge, your knife
shall not touch her!”
His command awoke the volcano which
slumbered in the student’s heart, and a
flushed face and flashing eyes greeted him
from the other side of the table.
“She is mine!” criod Hardinge. "I
bought her!" ,
“She is mine. I never surrendered my
claim to Ulalume. You shall not mar her
“Stand back, Ashley Comstock. I res
pect- you; but lam not to be cheated out
of such a subject as this. Curse you!”
This last sentence shot from Uutler Har
diuge’s lips, as Ashley Comstock snatched
his dead from the table, and retreated to
ward the door.
“Give her back.”
“I will not."
The maddened student sprung forward
with the keen scalpel above his head;but
Ashley’s right arm flung him against the
wall, and the next moment the room was a
sea of light For the scalpel, flying from
the student’s hand had knocked a swing
ing lamp from its fastenings and the flames
falling among certain chemicals, had in
augurated a terrible conflagration.
With desperation Ashley Comstock
found the street door; but it yielded not.
Then through the flames he sprang to the
window. One blow shivered the sash, and
out into the street he leaped with his
shrouded love in his arms. Stunned and
bleeding he was picked up on the walk
below, and borne to a rear house.
There he soon recovered to learn some
thing that startled him beyond descrip

He could not credit his senses until he

Madeline Robsart left the city when the
shades of night came. Forgiving Ulalume
would not hear of a pursuit. "Let her
go,” she said. “I can forgive. Were Ito

Butler Hardinge was rescued from the
flames, and forgiving Ashley Comstock, he
saw him made happy at the altar.
Several years ago a woman died in the
Monumental City, and over her heart was
found a scratch inflicted by a ring which
lay at her side. That self-murdered woman
was Madeline Robsart.
“Thomas,” said a father to his son,
don’t let that girl make a fool of you.
Look sharp. Remember the old adage,
that ‘love is blind.’” “Oh, that adage
won’t wash,” said Tom. “Talk about
love's being blind! W r hy, I see ten times
as much in the girl as you do!”

With but few exceptions the South
American Republics have all declared them
selves in favor of Cuban autonomy. A
few days back the Herald published the
official report of Costa Rica on the subject,
in which said Republic offered its friendly
services to bring about a termination by
diplomatic means of the inhuman butchery
now taking place on Cuban soil. The last
champion to enter the list is the govern
ment of Bolivia, through its President,
Adolfo Bullivan. In his recent address to
Congress, while speaking on the Cuban
question, the President made the follow

Details of the Plot to Rob the Shah.
A London correspondent publishes a story
of a conspiracy to rob the Shah of Persia
of his jewels. The party contested of throe

water, yet who were totally unknown to
the London police, and, indeed, though
often compromised, had never been con
victed of felony, They *i4 Col. Algeron

family which for so long has managed the fi
nances of the sublime Porte. The fourth and
last actor in the conspiracy, Toby Spring,
is u first-class burglar and safo-blower.
Toby was left in London, while the others
went to Moscow and managed to get their
names attached in some capacity to the
Shah's suite. Hawkins then hastened to
London, rented a handsome furnished
house in the neighborhood of Portmnn
square, hired a retinue of flunkies, and
gave himself out for an American nabob,’

great city, and especially to give some re- j

bery while the Bhah was surrounded by
his retinue and guards in Buckingham
Palace, but this idea was given up for the
safer one of inducing the Bhah to visit
the houss, and while there get possession
of his jewels. According to the story, an
appointment was made for the Shall to
visit Hawkins at the house, his so-called
daughter being the attraction. When Nur

in that condition on the streets.
A detective followed him to see that he
might not come to harm, and saw him go j
to Hawkins' office, knock for admittance, |
and the door was opened to him by Toby
Spring, whom he recognized. Thinking
that Narses had fallen among thieves, the
detective got assistance and forced his way
into the house. Toby and Serafino wero
secured. Hawkins made his escape, but
Narses, in his fright and delirium, made
straight for the river and was drowned.
Serafino made a partial confession and
surrendered a quantity of burglar’s tools
and the plot disclosed.

that the claim wli’ch Russell Sago & Com

of Georgia is just the same amount with
tho debt due them by Mr. Hannibal I.
Kimball. Mr. Russell Sage says the State
of Georgia owes him three hundred and

of monies which he loaned to H. I. Kim

contra, Mr. Kimball, in his schedule of lia

dollars on account of money loaned him
by that firm. How is that? Will Russell
Sage & Company receive seven hundred
and fifty thousand dollars for a debt of j
half that amount? If the State of Geor- j
gia owes the firm anything Kimball does
not, and if Kimball is indebted to them
the State of Georgia is not. They cannot j

How General Gordon Saved General
lu Goorgia I heard an incident in con
nection with Lieutenant General Sheridan,
which Little Phil, will read with some sur
prise, and lay down the paper with some
grateful feelings toward tlio gallant soldier
j who saved his life. The night previous to
the surrender of Loo at Appomattox, Gen.
John Ji. Gordon, who commanded Stone
wall Jackson’s old corps, General Fitz
Hugh Lee commanding the eavalrv, and
General Longstreet hold a consultation
with General R. E. Lee. At this consul
tation it was agreed that General Gordon
should try the Federal strength on the fol
lowing day. Sheridan was in command
opposite Gordon. In accordance with the
programme, Gordon made his demonstra
i tion the next day and was met by Sheridan's
j cavalry, which ho gallantly repulsed, but
i finding Sheridan well supported by large
numbers of infantry,fell back and sent this
intUiegonce to General R. E. Lee. Upon
its receipt General Leo ordered the firing to
cease, and displayed tho white flag, un
der which the surrender was subsequently
made. During the cessation of hostillities,
and while Generals Grant and Lee were in
consultation, General Sheridan, with u large
retinue of officers and men—about one
hundred in all—was seen approaching Gon j
oral Gordon’s lines. Of course, this caval
cade, ns it came dashing across tho plain,
j challenged tho attention of Gordon’s entiry
force. Chancing to turn his head, Gen- |
oral Gordon saw a long lank Mississlppiun
I within a few yards of him deliberately train- j
nig his cocked rifle on the approaching j
horsemen. Gordon dashed at the marks- J
man and rode him down, with an exclama
tion more emphatic than refined. "What do |
you mean, sir?” thundered tho irate Gor
don; don’t you know firing has ceased by j
my order? “T know, Gineral," replied j
Mississippi, as he gathered himself up, "but
I thought it wei'aridgmontacomin agin us, ;
and I jist, sighted that short-legged feller !
thar.andif you hadn’t come up I’d a fetohed
him from wharhe sot, and he’s ben a power- i
ful heap of good to the Yanks.”
That man was one of the best shots in (
the division, and never failed to kill his
object when deliberate aim was had. Gor- \
don turned to meet Sheridan, and Buc
hanan Read’s hero has never known how j
near his life came to going out with the
rebellion. Gen. Gordon is now United
States Senator from Georgia.
Instances of Memory.
There once lived at Stirling, England, a
blind beggar, known to all that country
round, by the name of Blind Alick, who
possesed a memory of almost incredible
strength. It was observed with astonish
ment that, when he was a man, and
obliged by the death of his parents, to
gain his livelihood by begging through
the streets of his native town of Stirling,
ho knew the whole Bible, both Old and
New Testaments, by heart; from which he
could repeat any passage, and tell you the
chapter and verse. A gentleman, once, to
puzzle him, read with a slight verbal alter
ation, a verse in the Bible. Alick hesita
ted a moment; and then told where it was
to be found, but said it had not been cor
rectly delivered; he then gave it as it
stood in the book, correcting the error
that had been purposely introduced. The
gentleman then asked him for the 90th
verse of the 7th chapter of Numbers.
Alick was again puzzled for a moment,
but then said hastily “Yon are fooling me.
sir; there is no such verse—that chapter
has only eighty-nine versos.” Several
other experiments of that sort were tried
upon him with like success. He was often
questioned the day after any particular
sermon or speech; and his examiners inva
ribly found that had their patience al
lowed. Blind Alick would have given them !
the sermon or speech over again.
Numerous individuals have been cole-!
brated for their amazing recollective pow-1
era of mind. Seuliger, it is said, could re
peat a hundred verses or more, after bav- j
ing read them a single time; and Seneca |
says he could repeat two thousand words -
on hearing them once, although they had !
no dependence or connection with each '
other. Perthicus prepared his comment
upon Clandian without referring to (he
text; and the learned Florentine Maglia
bechi, is recorded to have had such pow
ers of retention as to be capable of recol
lecting not only the sense of what he read,
but likewise at times the very words and
the spelling. To prove the power of his
prodigious memory, a gentleman lent him
a manuscript; and he returned to him
sometime afterwards, pretending it to be
lost, requesting Magliubochi to recollect as
much of it as possible, on which, it said,
that he wrote the whole of it without mis
sing a word. For the improvement of the
memory, a habit of strkt attention is of
importance in whatever object of pursuit
we may be engaged, as a systematic meth
od of procedure in study or business.
Moderate and repeated exertion is also
peculiarly adapted to invigorate and
strengthen the memory; mid. indeed, it is
almost incredible to wliat extent daily use
will promote this attainment.
Grant’s Third Term Party Machinery
It appears that the movement of the
office-holders to secure the re-nomination j
of General Grant for a third term has al- ■
ready commenced. It is stated that the
preliminaries were arranged at Long
Branch several days ago, and it is not de- j
nied that the President is cognizant, of it. ;
Those having tho matter in charge seem
to count very largely upon tho divisions
supposed to exist in the ranks of tho op
position, and upon their ability to rally
the moneyed interests of the country to the
support ol' their scheme. Under the head
of “moneyed interests” they include tho
national banks, the railroad corporations,
and the large capitalists. These, they al
lege, arc for Grant, because under his ad
ministration it is not likely that any legis
lation will be enacted hostile to these in
stitutions. Another argument used is that
there is no man in the Republican party
who has developed greater popular strength
than Grant, and it is hardly probable that
within the next three years he will have a
dangerous rival. Of course, the official
patronage will bo used in manipulating
conventions and in securing delegates.
Some of the President’s friends think it is
too soon to agitate the question of the suc
cession ; but the matter has been kept very
quiet, and it was not expected to Vie made
public until at least a year hence. J f Grant
should fail to get the nomination his
friends assert that he will, at least, be able
to name his successor.
