While til* aboresoftlie New world were thwUBdly welcoming the stranger colonists, the shadow of death hovered darkly •ear the old chMcMi among the Cevenncs. The Cowit was atrieVen suddenly and died ia the atme oT old Henri, who wept and flayed iiir hk beloved master as a man flreilith fur his own eoul. The last of the mAtlehoiiMof U S alle was gone to join kia b th en in theoountiy of the Great King, whoee rule is above all earthly digniUrie>>, while hit dvat was laid to moulder with in the aaoestrml vault. For the re-fm t of the departed spirit, prayirs were •aid and high masses edebratod many days ia the.chapel of the Holy Viigin,now nearly deMTted by the people of the hamlet. After the first funeral rites wete per-faased, Mary united no more in the serv-ieci fiir the dead. Her abscnce from the chapel drew upon her the particular aervathm of the church officials, whose sus-fidoiM of her infidelity had before been awakened. I t was aot long ere she was aaaunoned to confession, when the hetcsy • oTtiie wible maiden was made certain by ber own words; for not even for her mother^ Mke would Mary Momey longer with-kotdher belief in the doctrines of the Be-fbrmeis. The hcly sacrament of penancc «ra> BMst aoleuinly enjoined upon her by tkoae wko would not willingly aiBict a daughter of the &ithful. Bat Mary no tonger recogniied penance as a aaciament of the tniechurch,and would make neither vows of fasting nor amend-nMBt. Nothing remained- for her, there- Sm«, but aoommunication and ecclesiastical aenlence. Lady Motney plead the youth and lax re-lyiow tnining of her daughter while in Pa-in extenuation of her errors, and prom-iMd to fhlfiU any iiymtetian laid upon ber in her d an^ter's stead; and so for awhile the sentence was suspended. This was these- CMt trial of all the tender, loving heart of foerMaiy. Modi more easily could she hate endured denuiciatiaa, or even pcrse-cntion fcr herself akme, than the thovight of kar mother^ sectet, uncomplaining sulfei^ and self denial onheraccount. Days of painful fiiKting, and nights of unceasing vigils were leaving their record on the beautiful features of I^dy Momey, whQe every remonstrance on her daughter’s f a r t met with rebuke so tender as almost to break ber heart. Sometimar, for her «sothcr'ssake,ahe felt tempted to abjure the Cuth on which her young soul was so flnnly planted; bat the solemn warning, *^Whosoever lorsaketh sot.oU that he hath, cannot be my disciple,” ibtbade so danger- OMS a step. Old Henri was the oqly earthly confidant of ber trials and temptations. To him she sfuka ftedy, and received strength and en-eoomgement. One day when she opened ber heart to him more freely than usii^, he icfliadwitb enthusiasm, “The Lord will prwervc bis saints! As he led Isrs«A with a strung arm fbom the wrath of Bgypt, so may we trust him to lead the oppress^ Mugnenots in ssfety fiom the bondage of Fianoe. I can bear the call of the new Mo- • « , and see the promiiied land plainly now, v h id i I could not do while my dear Count Bobert lived. And if the Lord wills, my JMHC lady, I will soon forsake the banks of the Little Rhone, and go and lay my dd bones where tbe liew tabernacle is set up intbeviMemcss. Should U Salle become dwd«tcUnig«r a stranger there will be no* lM«sr need of old Henri." **Aad is that day near a t hand, then 7” « a i7 asked. ■N ot ontil my Lady Eleanor, your moth- • f, has fulfined her yesr uTmouming for ber fhther, and her days of humiliation Ibr the crHmof her daughter; then tbe Baron of Xoatfelier willclann tbe band which was fMniaed befare your retuni finm Paria.” tb a engagement of Lady Momey whs no OTCMtto berdangbtcr.

But be bad to contend with mightier than Egyptian Pharaohs; against the strength of Rome and his own kingdom combined. As I have just remarked, Henri’s observation relative to the sccond marriage of Lady Momey did not surprise Mary. It was an event she had been anticipating t x some time previous to the Count’s death, and and though a t first the source of regret, i^ had ceased to give ber pain. I t was easier ibr her to reflect upon the possibilities of her own exile, now her gnndfsthcr was gone, and her mother had new tics, and would consequently gneve less for ber loss. She had often heard the Count speak of the stainless escntchcon of the Montpelier*, of his immense estates, and knew tbat be contemplated the alliance with much satisfaction. For herself, she had never been really pleased with the Baron. Not only wa-s be a bitter partisan of the pope, but bis pride and haugbtiiiess of tone and manner little suited the gentle nature of Msry Momey. Every time he visited La Salle, she liked him less and less; moreover she bad strong suspicions that the persecution of tbe mountaineers was, in some degree, due to his instrumentality. CHAPT£a v u . The winter passed, and the spring awoke new pains and penalties to the peHisting Protestants, whom neither pains nor penalties could vanquish or cause to retract. From the new world came intelligence that the colony on tbe banks of the May was suffering both from insuborJin;ition and want, and Admirable Coligny put forth still stronger efforts for its rdieC Laudonniere, tbe commandant, was unable to keep in check the turbulent youth who followed in the train of the pious Huguenots, and whose thirst for adventure and lust of wealth were tbe source of constant peiplexity to the colony. John Ribault was a man better suited to the cemmand of such an elementary empire as that of tbe French colony in Florida. He possessed bravery, akill. experience and de-temiination< At the earnest entreaty of ColigBjr, he was persuaded to accept tbe appointment, and go with another expedition to Fort Carolina. Great joy was fUt by the Protestants when they heard of this new expedition, and that none but true disciples of the Hef n e r s would be suffered to accompany it. But for this very reason the Catholics re garded it with dtetrust and enmity, and would have prevented it a t the last, bad it been in their power. I t was toward the last of May when tidings of tbe expedition reached the Ceven-nea. For a number of weeks Maiy had been painfully depressed in spirits. UA>- certainly in regard to her lover’s fate in a distant land, and in r ^ r d to her own fate als», if she still adhered to the practices of tbe dissenters, caused her many anxious houn b ; day, and sleepless ones by night. The Baron of Montpelier^'was much a t the chateau, and it was evident he r ^ rd e d ber direliction from the established faith with far less indulgence than theCathoiics in the neighborhood,-with with whom she had been a Givorite from childhood. Tbe most aealous of them all would have shrank fVom testifying against the noble maiden who had walked among them in all meekness, humility and love; who had ministered to their sick and dying, and whom both the aged and younf children followed with endearments and Massing^.- The Baron saw in her onl/ a Proteetsnt of the most unyielding stamp,-a charactcr rendered the mere dangerous by h«r veiy attractiveness. He t<M her mother tius,- and ventured so far as to inquire whether the faithful and pious Lady Momey might not err in seeking to abelter her child from the kinder chastening «f the holy mother church. I t was a question, he conceived, which faugsr wisdom «nd experience tban thein ought to decide. So carefully were lus sentiments esprem-ed, that Lady Momey in her anxiety lo discover her own &ult, failed to apprehend his true meaning. But there was another listener, who though a Catholie henelf, felt that in the inwnuating tones of the straAg-er, lutked .some d e ^ againat their dariing yowiglady. I t was the Lady Eleanor’s maid, who made haste to communicate to old Henri, who was the friend and confidant of tiie whole household, the few words which had excited her suspicion. There was to be a council of bishops the next month, m an adjoining province, to decide what further measures should be taken against the olfondii^ HuguenoU. Was Henri quite sure the great Bapon would not re-port all he knew of them there I the m.i* asked him. Henri was sure of nothing. Since the days of the persecution, he had learned to distrust every one. Even Count Robert, his master and best fiieiid, had not always b ^ an exception. I t was this s am e distrast which prevented Henri now from meeting confidence with confi- ence, and informing tbe anxious girl tbat befon: tbe CM iv o c a tio n of b'whops, the beloved maiden of La Salle would be far away from the Ccvennes, an’exile fnim home and coun-try .a pilgrim to a distant and unknown land. I t was true; for after seleriiil aiid deliberate reflection, Maty and eld Henri had determined to become exilea together. fcwas tbe only way by which she might hope to escape persecution, and deliver her mother ftom tb»* psitw of pensacf.

A trusty messenger was already on his way to Admiral Coligny, to acquaint him with the deciskm of his fair yonng frie'd, and to secure accommodations for her on the vessel. Her little maid would accompany her, and join ber &ther, who went with the first colonists. The few of ber many treasures which coaid 'je taken, were soon gathered together and packed, with a scanty supply of necessaries, by the now resolute girl. I t was only as mnch as one mule c aid convey over the coantiy to the place of em'.iarkatkm. A lovely, tender, heart-bnriting brewell to her mother was written a t night when every soul in tbe chateau was sleeping but herself; then there was nothing left to do, but to watch their opportunity to d e p rt. To avoid the hazard of detention, they decided to leave tbe chateau secretly, though a few of tbe vilUgers who were bound on tbe same expedition were apprised of their design. Tbey did not hare to wait long. The Baron of Montpelier, Lady Eleanor, and her daughter were invited to a festival a t the castle of a neighboring noble. Mary spoke tmly when she said, there was no phwe in her heart for mirth, aod her motbeF^ look as she retumed her parting kiss, seemed but an ecbo of her chiM’s heart. “If I consulted my own feelings,” she said. “I should remain with you. but the Baron pleads social obligation.” “Go, my mother, and may Go 1 Hem yo« now and forever!” was the response which gushed from her heart, and wkich her mother pondered as she went away, ascribing it to her new relation which might not be agreeable to her. Mary’s eyes followed her mother, until t ‘:e carriage passed tbe chateau gates. All the depths of ber nature were convulsed and agonised with grief, and not until her tears flowed plentifully, did ahefind composure and relief. The departure from the chateau was no less painful to the old ateward than to his precious young chaige. They aet forth at evening, one of those bright, star-light summer evenings, so glorious always amid the mountains of France. From the Cliflii, which waa the first ridge ever which their path-way lay, the old man drew up their hordes fora moment, to torn for a last look of his native valley. “Never shall I behold its like sgiun ’ he said, “untiT I reach tbe ‘Mountain of the Lord’s House.’ Seventy long years have 1 b>ved the valley of the Little Rhone.” What dse he uttered was lust in broken articulation, and it was Maty who now acted the part of comforter, and spoke of the pleasant country tbey were seeking. “Yes, yes,” reqwnded the old man, “a«d we will learn to sing the Lord’s song in a strange land. My dea^ young lady, you are stronger than I in tbe hour of trial.” “Only younger, dear fKend, and with more of earthly hope in my bfsrt. I do not seem to be going to a strange land, but to a new home, and to one who loves me.” ‘-It was old Henri’s last wish to lead his young lady in safety to that home and rest. ing-place,”he rep li^w ith more composure. “He will go forwari now, with no more weakness nor r^ re ts .” Again the horse«’ heads were tamed, and tbe voice of the old pilgrim was soon heard risin§ heaven-ward in a hymn of praise.

All the childicn and grandchildren except one son and his femily, who reside in Galesburg, III., were present. The history of this femily has been traly remarkable. Denison Grant was the son 6f Dr. Miner Grant and his wife, a daughter of Jesiah Byles, Esq., of Ashford. The marriage ceremony was performed by Rev. Philo Jiidsuii,whuiiow resides a t Rocky llill,in this State. A family of ten children, three sons and seven daughters, are all living, and not one has buried a companion. The bouse has been owned in the family, I suppose,for more tban a century, and is iu good preservation. Is not this the true the-oiy of the homestead ? Trees csn b« planted, buildings cared for, improvements made,- with tite expectation th a t femily friends will also enjoy them. The mother of Mr.- Grant was bom here, and when be was ten years of age his fether bought out the heirs and made it his future home. He came to it with bis bnde fifty years ago, and has alwaj-s resided here.' The children wished to give their parents a surprise, and present tokens of fiUal regard. Tables were spread loaded with a bountiful repast. Rev. Mr. Williams and wife and a few friends were invited to be present,and all went merry as a marriage bell. When asvembled after supper,valuable gifts fhnn the children were presented, a t their ruquiist, by the pastor and his wife. Golden tokens of love were seen upon the table, and the parenta were deeply moved by these gifts of filial aflec-tion; The remark was made that fifty years ago, a tall young man went up to Ashford, dressed like a- bride-groom—be went to bring tO'bis house one whom be loved; one who loved hinb Death has never entered their femtly nnce. If after fifty j-ears of married life,-they judged the rehtion a desirable one, and wish and intend to enjoy it with each other till death shall part them, thqr were requested to join their right hands. The eager, loving grasp was such as one seldom sees in ncw-marned enisles. And why shotald it not be 7 Tbey knoW What has been, abd what to expect in each other.

Extract elf a letter from one of our volnn-teera to his wife: C amf C uB c sB B o a o v c it , B altimobb, Md, } Wednesday, Jan. 13,1864. \ Sing Old Hiindre l in the words “Praise God from whom all blessings flow.” After a voyage full of peril and hardships, I have this day arrived at camp,and hasten lo inform you of my whereabouts. I left Norwich on the 5th, about 4 o'clock, p. in., arrived in New Haven about 8 o’clock,an'l after marching about a mile to the camp, we had a supper of baker’s bread and cold water, (nothing else). Tbe next day we were all vaccinated. Fium New Haven it sfcems that government could get nutbinKbift open cars to tnixport its soldiers to'CAltimdre. and as they had several smsll squads fvf different d< partment.<*^ they chartered a steam trjaxport to cruise about and leave or peddle them out to their stteral regiments, so we left New Haven at about 6 o’clock Thursday evening and went on board the transport, about 300 of us, with ci>m-luMioned otficers and 24 ineii as a guard. We got started about 8 o’clock, and about 12 o’clock, as I was fast asleep.we run upon a rock in Long Island Sound, within a few rods of the shore of Hog Island where we had to remain, with no tire iu the cabin,until 7 o’clock, next morning, when the tide floated us off. It was terribly cold and snow' ing fast, so that the pilot could not see the the const. The boat kept settling down upon one side, and if the wind had blown hard,'the boat must have been stove in pieces. Tbe captain had all three of the boats lowered for us, in case she careened over, but thanks to God, she kept right side up till tbe tide floated us off. jia it was, a hole was stove through the bout and her wheel broken. The poor sailors had to work all night in tbe cold and snow to stop the hole and keep tbe vessel up, and tbey had the worst of it.- We arrived in New York a t 10 1-3 o’clock a: m., Friday, bad to get another boat, which toljk until 4 o’clock Saturday pj m. About 9 oVlock it blowedsobard and the boat rocked and pitched so badly tbat tbe captain dare not put out to sea,but anchored in the Narrow.'^, off Sandy Hook, and here we were all Saturday night and very cold. Sunday nicni it was a little calmer and we started and .suilol all day. Monday morning the weather was splendid. 1 arose'ea.ly and went on deck to see the sun rise out of the Atlantic The sun rose clear and watnn.' Tbe oo-an waa viry smooth airi tbe sight was splendid. The beauty of Monday and Tue»d.iy’s sail amply compensated for all the worst fear and cold. £a:iy Tuesday morning we anchored off Fr.rtrets Monrue and delivered 25so'.d!iers. Tue weather here was soft and warm as a May morning. We then started iip the Chis.ipeake Bay for Baltimore. Tbe bay was smooth and alnio>t lit-erslly covered with black ducks. The officers and such others as had firearms had great sport shooting them a.** we passed along. Great numbers of sea-gulls followed the boat,ind wo would (bro.v them hard tack to see them dive for it and sit top of the water and eat it. \Ve arrived a t Baltimore wharf alwmt 8 o’clock Wednesday , morning.

The treatment consists in thoroughly swabbing the back of the month and throat with a wash made thu.s: Table salt, two drachms ; black pepper, coblenseal, nitrate of potash, alum,-one drachm each. Mix and pulverize, put into a teacup which half fill with boiling. Water, stir well, and then fill up with g o ^ vinegar. Use every half hour, one, two and four bonis, as reo>very pro-j gresses. The patient may swallow a little | each time. Apply 1 oa. each of spirits of I tur|ientine, sweet oil and aqua ammonia mixed, every fimr’hours to the whole of *be throat and to the breast bone, keeping flannel to tbe part.—N. ¥. Tribune.

While til* aboresoftlie New world were
thwUBdly welcoming the stranger colonists,
the shadow of death hovered darkly
•ear the old chMcMi among the Cevenncs.
The Cowit was atrieVen suddenly and died
ia the atme oT old Henri, who wept and
flayed iiir hk beloved master as a man
flreilith fur his own eoul. The last of the
mAtlehoiiMof U S alle was gone to join
kia b th en in theoountiy of the Great King,
whoee rule is above all earthly digniUrie>>,
while hit dvat was laid to moulder with
in the aaoestrml vault. For the re-fm
t of the departed spirit, prayirs were
•aid and high masses edebratod many days
ia the.chapel of the Holy Viigin,now nearly
deMTted by the people of the hamlet.
After the first funeral rites wete per-faased,
Mary united no more in the serv-ieci
fiir the dead. Her abscnce from the
chapel drew upon her the particular
aervathm of the church officials, whose sus-fidoiM
of her infidelity had before been
awakened. I t was aot long ere she was
aaaunoned to confession, when the hetcsy •
oTtiie wible maiden was made certain by
ber own words; for not even for her mother^
Mke would Mary Momey longer with-kotdher
belief in the doctrines of the Be-fbrmeis.
The hcly sacrament of penancc
«ra> BMst aoleuinly enjoined upon her by
tkoae wko would not willingly aiBict a
daughter of the &ithful.
Bat Mary no tonger recogniied penance
as a aaciament of the tniechurch,and would
make neither vows of fasting nor amend-nMBt.
Nothing remained- for her, there-
Sm«, but aoommunication and ecclesiastical
Lady Motney plead the youth and lax re-lyiow
tnining of her daughter while in Pa-in
extenuation of her errors, and prom-iMd
to fhlfiU any iiymtetian laid upon ber in
her d an^ter's stead; and so for awhile the
sentence was suspended. This was these-
CMt trial of all the tender, loving heart of
foerMaiy. Modi more easily could she
hate endured denuiciatiaa, or even pcrse-cntion
fcr herself akme, than the thovight of
kar mother^ sectet, uncomplaining sulfei^
and self denial onheraccount.
Days of painful fiiKting, and nights of unceasing
vigils were leaving their record on
the beautiful features of I^dy Momey,
whQe every remonstrance on her daughter’s
f a r t met with rebuke so tender as almost
to break ber heart. Sometimar, for her
«sothcr'ssake,ahe felt tempted to abjure
the Cuth on which her young soul was so
flnnly planted; bat the solemn warning,
*^Whosoever lorsaketh sot.oU that he hath,
cannot be my disciple,” ibtbade so danger-
OMS a step.
Old Henri was the oqly earthly confidant
of ber trials and temptations. To him she
sfuka ftedy, and received strength and en-eoomgement.
One day when she opened
ber heart to him more freely than usii^, he
icfliadwitb enthusiasm, “The Lord will
prwervc bis saints! As he led Isrs«A with
a strung arm fbom the wrath of Bgypt, so
may we trust him to lead the oppress^
Mugnenots in ssfety fiom the bondage of
Fianoe. I can bear the call of the new Mo-
• « , and see the promiiied land plainly now,
v h id i I could not do while my dear Count
Bobert lived. And if the Lord wills, my
JMHC lady, I will soon forsake the banks
of the Little Rhone, and go and lay my dd
bones where tbe liew tabernacle is set up
intbeviMemcss. Should U Salle become
dwd«tcUnig«r a stranger there will be no*
lM«sr need of old Henri."
