Down to the banks of the Thames
slopes the lawn ut AVoodlauds,' the
residence of Mra. Chriatopher Lane,
widow; and beneath the bhad y limes,
on what in termed' the "Croquet
Ground,'4 far though sway from the
geranium and verbena beds to do no
mischief" to "thou,3 stood a party of
four, mallet in hand, on a certain
September evening, not very long
agO. i . ,V. r: ;J-:'s; . . 1. . :
"Well," said Carry Lane, "we had
better make haute and choose bides,
or we shall not have time for another
game before we are benighted, lie
member , tho evenings . are ; shorter
than they were a month ago." . .-
With a clever stroke of her mallet
Carry sent her, croquet bail bounding
up to the spot . where Mr. Hale, the
curate,' stood talking to Major War
der, of "the Blues,'4 ;audMi3 IIol
royd, who, like himself, were guests
at Woodlands for the evening. He
gave a brink jump as. the ball came
ith lull force , against;, his .ankle,
looking hastily round at tlie pretty
culprit, who laughed quietly beneath
the shade of her dainty little hat and
plume, her bright young face radiant
with bloom and happiness. -;
"You are a hard enemy, Miss Car
ry," he said, coming towards her;
"ho if we are to choose sides, I shall
have you on mine." ,
"Very well," said Carry, no way
displeased. "Let us bogin at once.
Come, Clare, and Major Warder."
: So the battle began in real earnest
Clare Uolroyd and i he Major on
one bide; Carry Lane and the curate
on the ot her. Keport said this young
curate, of Thamestown, wus courting
pretty Carry Lane. Perhaps he was;
at all events Carry knew 1est; and no
one bad any right to set reports going
until the fact was confirmed. But if
it was true, then we can only say the
curate was a man of good taste, and
he might have gone very far before
he would have found a prettier wife
or a warmer heart than this little
The other girl formed quite a con
trast to her; t?arry was all brilliance
aud color, with richly tinted cheeks,
sparkling roguish eyes, and jet-black
ocks; but Clare. liolroyd was t ale,
wonderfully r alo and fair; it was on
ly now and then that a faiut, soft
ige of color would come into Iter
cheeks and lighten up her deep gray
eyes. Iter natr was very beautiful;
it formed quite a glory round tbe
pale face such real, bright, waving,
gold-colored hair. A little rare
smile would sometimes part tne deli
cately curved l;ps, and linger there
a while, and then it was , that you
would call Clare Holroyd very lovely.
She was tall and slender, and on this
September evening her drc-ss was all
white. Carry I dine had placed a b.t
of bright scarlet geranium in the
golden hair, which formed a fitting
Carry had been telling the curate
all - about Miss Holroyd, for that
young lady nad only lately arrived
on a visit to some mends in a names-
town, and was not known iu tbe
neighborhood. She had just passed
tnrougn a "season in Aiondon,
where Carry said she was "raved
about." People called her a flirt, but
Carry couldn t see it. unless tnat
careless, bnlf-absent way in . which
she allowed tbe assiduous major to
arrange her croquet ball, watching
bim with a look of calm indifference
in her beautiful eyes, and sometimes
tnat rare, sweet smile on her lips
mii'ht be called flirtin". Tbe major
was a sincere admirer of Alias liol
royd's, but Carry denied there being
anything in it. The curate shook
his head, and "wasn't sure but what
there might be."
The game proceeded slowly, owing
to the repeated "bad strokes of tne
major and a slight absense of - mind
on tbe part of tbe curate. :
Presently there' came out through
one of tne library windows wliicu
opened on tbe lawn, a tall, handsome
old lady, to look at tbe players. -
"1 nave just left my invalid to him
self for a little while. Poor fellow 1
I wish be was able, to be out here.'
she said, ensconcing herself in a gar
den cnair under tne lime trees.
"Invalid awI".;Baid the major, ar
ranging nis tawny moustacne, . and
gazing sleepily at the speaker. "Who
is he aw .airs. .Lane JJidn tknow
you bad any one staying here.",.
"lie nas been with usa week now,
replied Mra, Lane. . 'He is a sort of
connection of mine Captain Uuallo
per, of the the just home from In
dia, where he was wounded in the
arm during the mutiny. - He is re
covering that, however, though tbe
arm is still in a sling; but he is suf
fering from frightful depression and
weakness, j after an ; attack of bruin
fever. I got him here as soon as
could for a change of air iuis is
rather a romantic story."
: "Like to hear it aw," .. murmured
the : major, indefatigably smoothing
"Before he went to India,", said
Mrs.. Lane, "his mother told me he
met at a friend's house in London, a
young lady she ' did not kuow ber
name to whom he became attached
and, in coarse of time, engaged. The
wedding : day was nxed . and every
thing arranged, when suddenly", to
the surprise of all, the engagement
was broken off, . The young lady
went to Brighton, and Charley Coal
loner to India. , No one knew exactly
how it was, .and -Mrs. Challoner
thinks it was because the girl flirted
with other ' admirers, and Captain
Challoner grew jealous; bo they quar
reled, and however the girl may have
felt after it, I know he has never got
over it. and it is just that , wtuab is
keeping him weak and depressed, and
X much fear, he will never bs any
better. He has only been away from
England a year, ana here he is a per
feot wrec-. ...It is. miserable to see a
Hue Landnoina youDg; man . like that i

move from the sofa, and so perfectly
listless and indifferent," sighed the
kind-hearted Mrs. Lane.' , ,
"He is such a downright good fel
low, I don't know how any girl could
have quarreled with bim," exclaimed
Carry, -enthusiastically. -- "; '
The curate .looked around some
what quickly. Was he growing sus
picious? .Carry pretended , not to
see the look he bent upon Iter, but
she did see it, aud felt rather pleased
than otherwise. i - !
"The girl must have boen a heart-
ess coquette,. or. I do not believe he
would have given her up. on any
slight provocation, continued Mrs.
Lane1. "Yet I think she could hot
but reproach, herself for her conduct
if she saw him now." , .
."Aw," said the major, "quite ro
mantic. Lhall we aw see this hero,
"Don't laugh at him, Major War
der," cried Carry; "you i would give
your, eyes to be half as handsome."
rtgain the curate looked uncom
fortable, but Carry relieved him
somewhat when she added, "I have
an idea that he is still devoted to tbe
girl, whoever she may be. I have
watched htm gazing out oi tne win
dow, with such a far-away look in bis
eyes, as 11 be were tuiuking oi nor
and other days.
"Aw shall we aw see him to
night f" asked the major again.
"I'ti haps you may induce him to
come into toe drawing-room alter
tea," said Carry. i
Don't you feol interested aw
and curious, Miss Holroyd ?' asked
the major, going up to where she
She was p&le stall times, but at
that moment Clara liolroyd s fuce
"My dear, you are cold, said Mrs.
Lane. "Curry, you must leave the
game and come tuto the dining-room;
there is a small fire there, and we
will have some tea. Come, Clara, I
cannot let you catch cold on my
awn, or you will not be allowed to
come here again."
Mrs. Lane rose, took the young
girl's arm aud led her to the house,
the others following slowly.
An hour afterwards, when the twi
light mingled with moonlight, and
cant shadows upon the stone balcony
qutside the library windows, Captain
Cbitlloner rosu up from the sofa,
where he lad been lying all the after
noon, and with weak, wavering steps,
he strove to pace the room. He was
growing weary of that tedious con-
buement day after day. and be strug
gled I'&rd agaiuetthe weakness which
overcame bim. His left arm was
bound up in a sling; with the right
he steadied himself in !is walk, hold

It ai a fine face, a noble face, ooe
vou could trust in, one you might
like to have near you in time of dan

was intellect in tbo broad, high
brow; there was tenderness and
truthfulness in the large, sad brown

eyes, which at times seemed to ue
looking "far away, as Carry JUane
said, and there was a brave firmness

Presently Captain Challoner stop
ped in the middle of his walk. His
ear caught the sound of music in the
serosa the hall.
Young, sweet voices Bang "Annie
Larrie." Slowly be staggered back
to his sofa again, carrying a horde of
half-forgotten memories with him
memories which bad cone to India a
year a?o with Jim, following him all
through the scenes of war and death,
and returning home again, only to
bo banished by fever . and uncon
sciousness. Back they flowed with
double force as "Annie Laurie" broke
on tbe stillness around. . .
"Her song! her song!" ho mur
mured. "I hoped I was forgetting
The poor wounded band strug
gled hard to cover his face, but only
the right arm, was able to do its
work, and the man -who had once
been so strong and brave groaned in
anguish perhaps for bis , helpless
state, but me.hinks it was more at
the memories which that old sons:
"I could have borne it all had she
not married him that fellow that
f ool !" he trroaned.
Ah, there was a wound' in Charles
Challoner's heart far deeper than
that in bis arm a wonnd which time
did not heal. . -The openinor of 'the
door caused him to look round;; then
trembling, staggering and ghastly.
be rose to his feet. Was it tbe ghost
of his former love that came to him
there in that moonlight silence, rob
ed in white, with her pale, beautiful
face rivaling her . dress? A moment
she paused , then with outstretched
hand Clare Holroyd came towards
"Captain Challoner," she'said, "I
beard vou were here, they told me
you were ill. I am come to see you
to to say I wronged you once in

It was .no ghost then; it was re

and remembered she was another
man's wife. - Be took the outstretch
ed hand, felt the' slender fingers
clasp his own, then carelessly ooldly,
he let it go, And Clare stood there
looking, at him with a yearning, sor
rowful pity in her face; she could
boo how ill La Lad bean, how weak he
was, and when her eyon ion on the

flirted "with PSir ; hilip .Fairfax,; in.
stead of being contented . with ' his
boucut love. . " - -
" ''Qh, Charlie, Charlie, forgive me;
sayou forgive me!'" she cried, in a
low, sweet, blaiutive voice, forget
ting all else but the memory of that
old true love. - "Charlie, you should
trot have gone away without a word
that time. I know I deserved it;
but I was true to you indeed, I was.
I-ilevefreared foe-"ip;:t win- '...'
t-'Hushrsuidhe- ... -r
.. .Cold, stern and proud the. soldier
threw her hand from his arm. It
was the ' first word ; he bad spoken,
and there was so sound of love or
forgiveness, in the tone; it nearly
broke Clare Holroyd's heart.
"Hushl" ho , repeated. "He is
your husband npw, Lady Fairfax.
Do not prove your "truth to me by
being fahW to him. 2 It is ; too late!"
. "Who told you that I was mar
ried?'' she criod, with a breathless
gasp. . . ,
A bitter smile curled bis lip as he
replied, "You forget that English
newspapers travel to India; and
though they may not always be the
bearers of pleasant tidings, at least
they are truthful. It was through
them that I learnt that Clare Holroyd
was married at Brighton, in January
last, to Sir Philip Fairfax, the-owner
of Duuedea ' Hall, Staffordshire,
"The greatest fool in London," he
would have added, in his bitter scorn;
but he . checked himself, sinking
wearily bock upon his back. '
There came a light over Clare
Holroyd's face, the old glad light,
which left it when Charlie Challoner
went away so suddenly to India. It
came back now, slowly, but surely.
Standing there before him, with her
bauds elapsed close together, trem
b.ing with a strange new ' agitation,
she questioned bim : 4 '
"if if I bad not married, could
you have forgiven me, Charlie?
Could you have loved me?
He looked up to her. Was she
trying to tempt bim? Why was her
voice so sweet, her tone so gentle?
Speak! tell me I she cried; "but
for that, could you have forgiven
"I could," he replied.
The light on the girl's face was
creeping down to her heart as she seat
ed herself on the sofa beside him. The
twilight bod died away in the clear
moonlight. There was no need of
gas to reveal those two faces to each
other. Clare's was not pale now; it
was burning with a lovely color.
" lou bad better leave mo now; I
am not quite strong yet, he said,
with a little effort.
He was right; tbe old wouud was
opened afresh, and tbe pain seemed
greater than the old man could bear.
"I know it," she answered. "In
one moment I will leave you if you
wish it. I want to ask you another
question. Captain Challoner, do
you remember my aunt and cousins at
ILuley street? I think I introduced
you to thera once."
lie bowed his head. - J
You ' remember the Kirls?" she
continued. , There were four of
them Grace, Mary, Julia and
"I never heard their names," he
replied; "I only saw them but once,
the day we met them in the park. 1
think you introduced Sir Philip Fair
fax to them at the same time." . He
spoke somewhat sharply, and with a
weary impatience. '
Clare s voice trembled as she said,
"I did; and four months; after he
married the youngest girl, my oousin
Clare. I am Clare Holroyd still."
Then she rose up from her sofa,
and he sat there alone. Tbe moon
passed behind, a cloud, and there
came intense darkness and silence
over the old library at Woodlands,
but it was only for a few minutes;
then the clouds were gone, and there
came flooding into that stillness a
wonderful light, which found its way
into tbe heart of the wonded soldier.
"You will forgive roe now," said
Clare; "you will tell me so before I
go; it would make me feel happier,
much happier, to know I am forgiv
en. ' And may Heaven grant you
may soon recover from this terrible
illness, and yourself again."
lie tried to raise . himself, but be
had aire tdy tried himself to the ut
termost; and now when this great
joy, streaming, into his soul, .when
the old wound was healing, be felt
how miserably : weak and helpless he
was to battle, even against that ' un
speakable joy,' he looked at her,
standing there in her beautiful young
strength before him one earnest,'
yearning, hungry look. ' ' - -" i ,
.. Clare saw the look. I She caw the
weak, vain efforts to rise, and with a
womanly tenderness she knelt down
by bis side; two - warm, round arms
were about his neck; andasbecaught
her to his breast, she . heard tbe deep
gasping sobs whjch rent the onoe
strong brave man's heart.
r "Charlie,' my own, my'- darling,
don t, don t, she said,; and burnin
passionate kisses were pressed on the
pale, thin face, over .which the pent
up tears fell.' ......... - f;r
, How strong she was in his hour of
terrible weakness, and how suooess
fully at ' last , she soothed away those
bitter sobs! ' With all the power of
his right arm he held her there, and
with her sweet' young face raised to
his, het golden hair falling loose and
unbounded upon his shoulder, and
her lips now and then returning the
caresses pressed upon them, "Clare

Sumner's creed in the worship of
Sumner, that be wanted a wife to sit
at his 'feet while at home and pour
out unceasing praise, and during his
absence , read ; bis speeches in the
Globe, or those heavy volumes called

Balls, parties, suppers, receptions,

statesman were nauseating to ; her.
Instead of poring over musty , tomes
and heavy state papers, and prepar
ing from them tremendous speeches
and reports, the Senator found him
self dragged into entertainments he
despised, and all his valuable time
frittered away. Domestic incompat

WE COXC17B, A WD BISE TO EX
An article in a late number of the
Slatetman devoted to vilifying W. II.
Watkiuda, contained this:
"The credit of tbe State is involved in
the character of tbe men' who fill responsi
ble poaiiions under it." , .
True, every word of it. And now let ue
analyae the character of the men who
have filled respvtsaiLle positions in this
State under Hetiuhlicsn rule and see
whether or not tbo credit of tbe State baa
suffered. We wilt commence with Geo.
L. Woods, late Uuvernur. .. Who was he,
and what wash's character wbereheia beat
known? Jlo went into office a mend.cant
and came out a capitalist on a $1,500 sala
ry. His private character is that of a
lecher and a hypocrite. . So vile were
some nf his association tbat when he held
tbe office of Governor, a certain Ship Cap
tain refused to reenguize him, on his way
home from San Franriaca. W bile on the
canvass with Col. Krlley. crior to his
election, at' Oakland, Wuods bod to be
called away, by a friend, from the assocu-
iiou oi an uia laviirue upon wnom be waa
laviitbins; lascivious . endearment. As
Governor of the State, ho received a bribe
from a ring of speculators off the Govern
ment to to t Washington and secure the
removal of G&n. . Rouseau and tbe re
turn of Gen. Steele to the command of the
Department of Columbia that tbe aforesaid
rinj mipbt fleece the Government bv se-
tunnjc fat contracts. For thia niece of
official pronitution . and . perjury, he .re
ceived $5,000. It is currently reported
and rcnemlly lelievsJ that he received
money for tbe release of cwn riots frcdn the
Peuitentinry. It is alo stated bv those
who ought to know, that he was bribed to
report favorably on certain military roods
by which means the people were de randed
out of immense oodios of tbe public land
and certain incorporations made rich.
Such ia tbe character of thj Ute Renublt
can Governor, and yet the Statesman never
tires in its laudations of him. "
' Kext ia tbe list, we will call the atten
tion nf the Statesman and ita party to Sam.
. May, late Secretary of State. What is
he, nna where is be now? He is an em
bossier and a fugitive from justice, . Not
loss than $20,000 of the peoples' money he
squandered in putting on aristocratic airs
and supporting bimsell in regal splendor.

ing from tbe escheat fund, and but for the
vigilance of our. present Secretary., he
would have got away with his spoils.
these roots are notorious, and tbe Re
publican papers of the State cannot 'suo
cesslully controvert them. With what con
sistency then, can tbe statesman cast re
flections 'upon Democratic -office holders
