Ckmtinued from last ^>cek. It was some three weeks after, when an fl ^ n t traveling-carriage rolled up the avenue of WiUow-Uale, and the face of Edith De Wiltptilook^ forth.frojm its open w^ovf.^ «OJl, ’hQW she they wound along tiirough rows of stately chestnut trees. Her husband started joyouE-ly. For the first ^ii^ce. their bridal, she h r i ddgned to give^ujtewce to an expres-mon of admiration; and its object was their future home. She had received his costly bridal presents, of diamonds and rubies, and giit^rimr- with' careless in ^ e r - en a^ 'aM ia liatf-mocking snule wreithing h e rA ^ l ll9t the .ftdr face <1id. indeed wear an e^prrasibn of p l^ u re , and bending f o rw ^ ^ th . alsfidden. itOpuUe, lie;dlPW ; to his bosom and I d ^ d her fondly.

Ah, there is Ajrmee 1 ” and a happy b r i^ t^ e d t ^ f ^ e r > face. In a moment more they glinted from the carriage, and ^etntbr D6 mltoB, s tu ping upon the piazza, extended his arms to hisliride, and drew her to his bosom fondly moQBimng—“ welcome, s^eet wife, welcome to heiA and home! i'hen turning be lift«l4he lilUe Aymee,. kissed her tenderly, and ifa^ing hjcr. to Edith, said-^'* This is Ayme^'s-new nuunma.

Uie stateliest of stalely kisses, and the Kttle one timidly retreated to her nurse. Mi»..De Wilton made her first appearance at the dinner taM«^ of her new home, in a magnificent ruby colored velvet, with pendents of rubies in her small ean, and a strii^ of ^ e same i^U s h ^ i^T lia S r.'’ An boiu^fter, she sat )>«iiiiig her proud head against the high back of a crimson velvet arm-diBir, asd her hna-band stood at a Ut^le distance watdiing b «.

I have always thought it one of the strangest things in this strange story (for, reader, my legend is a true one) the sudden, unaccountable, undefinable, almost mesmeric attraction, which, from the very first, drew, forced the sweet child, without the hope of resistance, to cling to her praud, cold step- (uother.

It was not exactly love, for it reqnirvd no afFoction in return, but it was more like worship. No forth prayers, though the sky over bead was brass, and the earth underneath iron. Another hour had p a s ^ , and still Edith sat motionless in tlie Tiigh-backed chair— still her husband sat siknil^watching her ; andstiil little Aymee’s ■Woe'steadfast eyes were not once turned away from her facc At last the child arose, -and timidly creepint; to the proud woman’s chair, she knelt at her feet, and crossed her tiny hands on the rich folds of her velvet robe.

Then, she thought, that but for Aymec, it might be all her own—if but the first Mrs. De Wilton bad died childless, not only Wil-low- Dale but Mont Maiy might have been hera ; and gradually a fierce and terrible hatred of the sweet, quiet child stole unchecked, and almost unpercelved, into her heart; and there the little one was kneeling at her feet. “ Oh mother, sweet, beautiful mother,” murmured the child at length, in tones low and very plaintive, butyet strangely musical, “ take me to your heart, dear mother. Oh, please, please to love Aymee ! Her other mother.has-been up in Heaven^a wkilCf a i^ Ajfmw fo lav* . But the caress the poor child so yearned tor was not given, and Edith’s voice was cold and almost stem as she s u d : “ Go away to your play, Aymee. I am thinking, and do not wish to be disturbed. I hardly know you yet, and jrour nurse can take oare of you tk |^ f can.” and the ixpula^icbildiiUnM'awa^^cftii^ing with her small hand the round, glittering tears whickhad gathered-0|:^ her h^hes, and sat down aga&i -tt' her' little chair, and resumed her ceaseless wstch of tiiat strange mother. “ Harold,” eud the lad^,^at l e n ^ The husband started with pleasure, for it was the first time she had ever called Um by his name. He came forward and threw himself on a low stool beside her, inquiring, “ what is it dearest ?” “ Nothing, only just see how steadily that child watches me.

Three years passed away, and still Edith De Wilton’s husband regarded her with the same wild idolatry. It was rather the impassioned worship of the lover than the tender, sanctified devotion of the husband. For in all these, years kis loveliad nat met witii the slightest return. Not oncc had her proud lips been pressed to his brow—^not once had her hand wandered caressingly among his raven hjur—not once had she manifested one emotion of joy at his approach. To do Edith Dfr Wilton justice^ al^ proud to profess wKat >he did not feel ; and she hadneyer,ia.» sin uU teittdiod herself to coBut^^eli « Jird^iirmch^M iiot'ex-ist.

Her rare beauty and exalted social position made her almost omnipotent at Washington, and her wish suggested at the fountain-head procured for her husband the appuintraeut of mimister to the court of St. James. There was another motive that urged her to this step. Time had only served to iucreBse the devotion of the little Aymec, and her steadfast eyes were constantly seeking her mother’s cold face, unlil her very presence had become intolerable to thehwghty woman. Oh, how bitterly she hated her.
