In spite nf the heroic coursge which has

may be allowed to quo.'inn if many of ths

pursuing the course adopted by the heroine
uf the following anecdote, hich 1 can re

aod its authenticity.
A young lady whom we will call Madame
Aubrsy, inhabited (with her husband) a house
in the little town of C The only in
habitants of this house, which was in the out
skirts of the town, and burtrd in an immense
garden, were Mens, and Madarno Aubrey,
their child about a year old, and ooo domes
tie, who had quite recently entered their ser
vice. At nine o'clock in Ihe evening, per
feet silence reigned tuouhout Iho little
loon. At ten every ''ghl was extinguished,
except in ll'e ra'C occurrence nf a dance, a
wedding, or some similar festivity. Yob can
from this imagtno Ihe stlur.cn and solitude of
this old house, buried tn a thicket of Itlacs
snd scsciaea, ami at least three hundred pa
ces from the street.
One gloomy evening in November, Ma
dame Aubrey waa at home, awsinng with
some anxiety the return of her husband, who

of pistols, a precaution which somowhat a
larmed his wife.
It wat six o'clock and Madamo Aubrey
had just gone to her chamber, attended by
her d'xneMse, fur the purpose of putting her
little b y to bed. This chamber, which was
high and large, was situated on the first floor,
looking upon the girdcu. The wood black
ened by lime the old fashioned and datk col
ored furniture, and old family portraits, with
their stern faces, gave this room ralhcr a
dreary aspect. A largo and deep alcove, bo
solo which was placed the baby's crib, con

tion nf tho side of Ihe apartment opposite the
fire place. Tho curtains of Iho a'cove were
drawn, but at sine corner, where Ihey had
hen accidentally displaced, a email portion
of the bedstead was visible. This was a
venerable old structure, covered with the
elaborate reiving and curious scrolls in which
lha chisel of the cahinet-muker of Ihe last
century so much delighted.
Thn night was datk and gloomy, a true
mumnal night. The tasn beat in torresits
gainst the windows, and the trees, bent by
the furious wind, scratched with their long
fingers against Ihe glass anil tho sides of the
house, making a concert which would have
IF -dually drowned any human cry for suc
