MAUD ALSTON'S TRIUMPH.
" So you refuse me ?"
41 Yes, firmly, and forever. I wish
you to cease your persecution of me.
Neither your threats nor vows of
vengeance can intimidate me. You
cannot crush my spirit, nor cause my
will to bend one atom. You will
please to leave my presence.'
The last speaker,! a young, and
spirited girl, stood proudly erect, and
gazed with unutterable dislike, upon
her companion, a young man of groea
features and repulsive apperaance.
" It is not necessary that you annoy
me further, you will please go."
She pointed in the direction of the
halfopen door. Her companion obeyed
her, muttering as be departed that he
would yet live to make her repent her
Maud Alston was the daughter of
deceased army officer. The death of
her mother, at a late day, had lef. her
alone in the world; and had placed her
under the guardianship of Blivin
Boormoth, a narrow-minded, unscru
pulous and avaricious old English
squire, who, to secure the small
fortune left his ward by his parents,
sought to marry hrto his son. Maud,
full understanding the motive,? of the
father, had opposed vcry overture
made by the youog tuao for scch an
alliance, and it had resulted in ihfi
sccnewhich has just been described.
The young woman hastened to her
room, and after securely iastoniog the
door, sat down audbegau to reflect as
to what future course would be best for
her to follow, It fwas"evening, and
through the window-panes everything
looked dark, dreary, and hopeK ss. To
remain longer beneath tlte roof thai
sheltered Blivin Boormoth, seemed to
portend a lifej'that woaM be more
hopeless stUl. It took her but a brief
space of time to make up her ratad
with regard to what future course to
follow. She hastlly'arosc, end tying a
small quantity of wearing apparal
together in a bundle, ho enveloped
herself in a thick shawl aud hood, and
silently stole forth froaa the house of.
her persecutors, out from the hated
place and from the presence of its
odious pactfiauU, into tho gloom
of the dewy night.
She hurried away, hardly knowing
or caring where she was going, only
that she effected her escape from Blivin
Boormoth and his disolute son.
Sometimes sho stumbled and fell,
sometimes she fancied she hadbaif lost
her way; her drcs became damp and
bedraggled with the dust and dew; but
stimulated by hope, and strengthened
by excitement, she thought nothing of
weariness or bodily fatigue, so long as
the distance increased between herself
and her tormentor.
In a neighboring village lived Lady
Mordaunt, the widow of an army
officer, who had formerly belonged to
the same regimont that her father had
been connected with during his life
time. With Lady Mordaunt Maud
had long been , intimately acquainted,
and between them existed the most
friendly relations; and so to Lady
Mordaunt Maud determined to go
hoping to find in her house
temporary asylum where she would be
free the persecutions of her guardian
and his ill-favored son.
She arrived at Lady Moriaunt4s
home early on the following morning,
nearly exhausted by her long and
wearisome journey. Lady Mordaunt
received her cordially, and when she
had listened to a recital of her
experiences she took her to heart like
a mother, and promised as far as lay in
her power, to protect her from the
further importunities of her guardian.
For some months Maud lived in
strict seclusion, all efforts upon the part
of J31ivin Boormoth to discover her
place of retreat were unavailing.
One day Lewis Mordaunt came
hope unexpectedly to That bis
mother. He was a Lieutenant in the
Royal Navy, and a youug man of high
attainments and rare personal beauty.
Having obtained a long leave of
abscence, he hastened home and wits
gladly received by his fond mother,
from whom he had long been separated
from the jmouent his eyes first fell
upon Maud Alston he began to love
her. They soon became the best of
friends, and . before a month had
passed they had plightod their faith to
each other, and a few weeks later they
were quietly married in au obscure
church in the village.
Meauwhile, Blivin Boormoth had
not been idle. A few days after the
occurrence of tho happy event, he
succeeded in discovering Maud's place
of refuge, and armed with a formida
ble warrant, he see forth from home,
aooompanied by his son and constable,
to bring back his truant vard to the
place she had left so unceremoniously.
Lady Mordaunt and Maud were
conversing together, when Blivin
Boormoth and his two companions
made their unexpected appearance
at the door of the bouse, where they
were. The face of the old man
disfigured by intemperance and exces j
and rendeied more hideous by the
look of triumph which it wore never
looked more repulsive than. then.
Maud started np from her ssat in
affright, acd involuntarily took refuge
behind Lady Mordaunt, who in a per
fect salf-pofcsessed manner demanded
tho meaning of the unwelcome intru
sion. "I've come for my waid, mum,"
said the guardian with a malicious
chuckle. "You may as well give her
up peaceful, or I'll have you prosecu
ted, mum, for '
"What id the meaning of all this?"
exclaimed Licntenant Mordaunt, who
suddenly entered tho room without
fully comprehending the scene.
Maud sprang into her husband's
arms for protection, while Lady Mor
daunt pointing to the intruders, said :
"These are Maud's persecutors"
than turaiog to the astonished guar
dian, she said. "As my son's wife
Maud no longer needs your protection
you will please leave my house."
The old man liftod the heavy stick,
which he carried in a. threatening
manner, but desisted as he saw Lieut.
Mordaunt instinctively lay his hand
upon the hilt of his sword, and, utter
ing low threats of vcogeance, he and
his companions left the place.
The baffled guardian was suscquent-
ly compelled to restore every penny of
Maud's small fortuue, which he had
wrongfully appropriated to his own
use. A few months after he was a
fugutive from justice, having been
detected iu a great crime. His diso
lute son followed the footsteps ' of his
father, and lived a useless and evil
Maud became the happiest of wives,
and the best of mothers; fortune favor
ed her husband in many ways, and
she lived to enjoy the comfort and
happiness she deserved.
, Thus the who oppress the weak
and helpless, and. seek to enrich them
selves by disreputable means, invaria
bly fail in their undertakings, and fall
short of the goai they endeavor- to
reach, while the oppressed and perse
cuted triumph after many days. -BY
euuene j. hall In The lireside
A smart littlo boy in New Orleans
was reproved by his mother for
felling a fib. He insisted it was only
in fun, but his pious mother told him,
he must ask Divine pardon. So the
little boy knelt down and said : " O,
Lord, forgive me. I wouldn't have
done it, only I thought you could
take a joke.
COUNT DI3 C1IAMUORD
The mot prominent man in France,
perhaps in Europe, just now,- is the
Count De Chambord. There is anoh
er person, it is said, who claims to be
the legitimate Count. Under these
circumstances the following historical
facts will probably Vye read with interest.
Louis XVIII had no son. The
crown consequently wouid pass, at his
death, to his brother Charles. He had
two sons The eldest Duke d'Angou-
leme, married the only daughter of
Louis XVI., the unfortunate princess
who suffered so dreadfully in her cap
tivity in the temple. They had no chil
dren. The second son, the Duke De
Berri, married the princess Caroline, of
Naples. The first two children died in
infancy. Their third child was a
daughter, afterwards Duchess of Parma
As females could not reign rn France
the Bourbon line would become extinct
unless the Dachess de Berri should
give birth to a son. AU the LegiU
imists of France were exceedingly anx
ious for this event.
In Februarv. 1820. as tie Duke d
Berri was leaving the theater, in com
pany with the Duchess, an assassin
plunged a poniard to the hilt in his
side. In the darkness the assassin fled
but was speedily arrested. The Duke
felt only a violent blow. Bringing his
hand to his side, he found the dagger
sticking there, "I am assassinated!"
be cried out So sudden had the action
been that the carriage, in which he had
placed the Duchess, was but just begin
ning to move. The Duchess heard the
dying cry of her husbaud, with a
shriek she called upon the driver to
stop. Leaping from the carriage, she
caught the Duke in her arms. He had
just draws out' the dagger, and tin
blood was gushing from the wound.
,1 am dead!" said the Duke. "Send
for a priest Come, dearest, let me die
in your arms."
He was taken to an adjoining room
and medical attendance soon arrived.
Some one expressed to the Ducness the
hope th at the wouod might not prove
mortal. "No," said the dyiug Duke
"1 am not deceived. The dagger has
entered to the hilt. Caroline, arc you
"Yes, my love," she raplicd, "and I will
not leave you."
The Hishop of Chartrcs, jonfe?sor of
unaries jv ,arrivea, ana naa a lew mtn
utes of private conversation with their
dvinz man. The Duke then called
for his infant daughter. She was soon
brought in asleep. He placed his hand
upon her haad, and said: 4loor child
may you be less unfortunate than the
rest of your family.1'
One of the physicians, M. Bonjon, en
deavored to restore circulation by suck
ing the wound. "What are yon do
ing?" exclaimed the Duke. "For Gods
sake stop; perhaps the dagger was pot
soned." The thief physician, Dupuy
tren, as a last resource, endeavored to
enlarge the wound, that the blood migh
flow externally. The Duke, his hand
already clammy with the damp of death
clasped convulsively the hand of the
duchess as he bore the painful opera
"Save me farther pain."said he.
Then tenderly caressing hs wife, h
added, "Caroline, take care of yoursel
for sake of the infant you bear in your
bosom.0 His father then Count d'Ar
tois; subsequently Charles X., and his
elder brother, the Duke d'Augouleme
83on arrived, wjth other members o
the royal family,
In faint and dying accents the Prince
inquired; "Who is the man who has
killed me? I wish I could see him to
seek into his motives. Perhaps it was some
ono whom I have unconsciously in jarcd
Would that I might live long enough
to ask the king to pardon him. Prom
ise me my father, promise me my broth
er, to ask of the king the life of that
man"- ' ,1- ' J' ; ".
Increasing difficulty of respriation
warned the Prince that his last hour '
was at hand, a few words in whispered
tone, were interchanged between the
Duke and Puchcss. Soon after two
illegitimate children, who were born to
him in London, when the family were
all in exile, were brought in. He had
ever recognized ; these children, and
they had been tenderly cared for by
both, him and his amUblo spouse. Ab '
the children knelt sobbing by the side
of their d? ing father, whom they sin
ccrely loved, he embraced them affec--
tionately, and, turning to the Duchess,
"I know you sufficiently, Caroline,'
to know that you will take care of
these orphans after I am gone."
The Duchess, with true nobility ot:
action, took her own child, from the ,
arm ofita nurse, and, drawing those
innocent tut unfortunate little ones to
her lap, tenderly carressed them, and
said : "Kiss your sister, my dears.',
The dvjng man was evidently cpnr
soled by thia generous deed. He then
fervently exclaimed: 0 my God,
yaiuuu wo tuy BiuH ; .raruon me my
sins, and pardon him who haa taken
my life." ' vv
Soon after this the Kirrg Louis
XVIII., arrived. "My uncle," said
the dying man, "give me your hand,
that I may kiss it for the last time.
I entreat you, in the name of my death,
to spare the life of the man who has
"You are not so ill as you suppose "
said the King we will speak of this
"Ah!" aadly exclaimed the dviog
Prince, "you do not say yes. The
pardon of that man would have soften -fid
my last moment."
He had (haidly uttered lese last
words ere ho sank awav. and did.
Louvel, the assassin, a brutal wretch,
sufiered upon the scaffdd the penalty
of his crime.
On the 20th of September, 1820,
seven months after the death of her
husband, the Duchess de Berri waa .
delivered of a son, the present Count J
de Chambord. The rovalists welcomed
the birth of this child with evciy
demonstration of joy. . Not long after ;
this, Charles X. succeeded to the; '
throne. All the Legitimists of France c
and of Europe recognited the young ..
Count de Ch.imbord. who . waa then ?
calledthe Duke of Bordeaax, as the ,
lawful heir to the throne. The Duke.,
d' Angouleme waived his rights in
favor of his nephew.
When the King nd Court fled,
before the revolution of 1830, the
Duchess and her child, who was then,
about ten years of age, were in the
large party of roval fugitives which the
royal guard were conducting to tho
coast At midnight, Amidst a scene
of great consternation at Rambouillct
the King abdicated the throne in favor
of his grandson, the Duke of Bordeaux
whom,he proclaimed as King, with the
title of Henry V. It was too late for
compromise. Moro than forty yeara
have since passed away. During that
time the Count de Chambord has been
an exile, while .Franco - has passed
through the changes of a monarchy, a
provisional government, a republic, an
empire, and another provisionar gov
ernment. The wheol of fortune, thus
ever turning, may again place the
Count do Chambord upon the throne
of his ancestors. f I
