On * C0Jd( damp, misty night, in the month ol April, lH3o, a carriage and four, with out riders, followed by another carriage filled with luggage and crowded with lackeys, dasb ed up to the inn door of a large and handsome town on the banks of the Irthing. Landlord, w%itera, and servant# of every degree rushed out to receive the new-comers, when two gen tlemen alighted from the first carriage, and were shown by the obsequious landlord into an elegantly decorated apartmont. Both of the strangers were dressed in deep mourning and seemed to look with wonder on all around them ?; How far are we from Ornton Lodge '"in quired the younger of the strangers. " About a mile please your honor," was the ready answer. And what is the name of this town ?" was the next interrogatory. " Leeville, sir. Called after Adam Lec, the wealthy eadmg partner of the firm of Adam Lee and Company, iron merchants, and heav en knows what all." "What lurid glare of light is that which shines so fearfully in the mist-is thore anv part of the town on fire ?" inquired the etrun gers "No, sir?oh no! that ij the glare of the furnacne oftho public works, ' the reudv an swer. y When the night is dark or U)i*ty, the g are ot the flames is cast upon the clouds and all around " " The place seems to havo flourished?when was it built?' was the next interrogatory ?' W.thiu the I ait three year," The re p!y L 'and tV9Ty da7 il on increasing " " ho are the chief proprietors ?" " Adam Lee, sir. There is another part of the town, called Ornton, alter young dquire Ornton, of Ornton. The young tjquiru suc ceeded his uncle. Sir William Emerly latelv in the titles and estates of Emerly." "I know?I know," said alio stranger im patiently, as he moved his hand for the land lord to be silent. " la Adam Lee in town ' he inquired "1 cannot say, sii ; but I will make in quiry." "His family will reside here, I suppose? laid the stranger dubiously. " Occasionally," was the answer ; " but Miss "Ay, well, what of her'" was the eager interrogatory, put ao abruptly that the honest landlord stared. Oh. Miss Lee, air. She's been in Paris, and London, and Bath, and dear knows where all. bhe s a great lady now, Miss Lee." '? Inquire if Adam Lee is in town," said the stranger, as he waved his band, and the land lord vanished with ready alacrity " " You swem puzzled,' said his friend to the ? the landlord withdrew. wVo - X'm L 1 actua,|y bewildered. I WLo would have dreamed, when I left Orn j ton Lodge nearly three years ago, that on my return 1 would have toued a populous flour ishing town where a barren heath once stood --public works erected where scarcely a blade or corn would grow! Why there seems a mystery in it-it looks as if the wand of a ma gician had struck the 6oil and conjured up all ttus. bo saying, he threw himself iuto a Seat, and picking up a newspaper, glanced at it, and starting up suddenly, exolaimed, ' Mora wonders ! when will they case ? Lo ! h?re1s my old friend Adam Lee standing for member of Parliament for the Itulihbnrin* burgh!" a 8 "Adam Lee seems to oross your path in this, ' said bis friend, as he glanced at the paper. " No, by my honor! I love him the better fot it," was the rejoinder; "and noting would give me more sincere pleasure than to see him returned as member For my own part, he shall have all my support and influence' I speak in honest candor, Dudley." ? I doubt it not," replied Dudley; "perhaps you have reasons for it." !, A good humored smile was the only an swer, and further conversation was broken between the two by the appearance of the landlord, followed by a stout gentlemanly looking man. "Mr Lee is not at home, sir," said the landlord, bowing; but here is bis partner. Mr- Ralph Sebring." Hit lordship sprang to his feet, and grasp ing Kalph by the hand heartly, exclaimed? " What, my old friend Kalph ! I am over joyed to meet you once more !" " Squire Ornton ! I beg your pardon, sir, Edfard 1 should say," said Kalph, checking himself. "Tosh, man, tush! I'd rather that my dear uncle bare the title yet than that his death had placed it on me. But come, be seated, and in wonder's name tell me how came all those marvels which meet my eyes at every point since I have returned home this length!" . "Industry, sheerinduatry, answered Ralph smiling " When your honor was kind enough to grant us a lease of the minerals on your es tate, prior to vour going abroad, we lent our energies with oheerlulncas to the t&fik, and suc cess crowned onr efforts. Your late reverend uncle, Sir William Emerly, was so pleased with our good fortune, that he of his own ac cord gave us a lease of all the minerals in his lands. This was followed by others. As our works increased, more hands were required, so that we took this land on fee. and built the town which you are now in. This is the whole mystery ; and so far as your honor's interest is concerned, we have acted the part of just stewards." "Then this explains bow my path abroad seemed fltrewed with gold. I seemed to live in a continual shower of it,'- said Sir Edward. "But Adam Lee, my old friend and his wife, ?and?and Mary, I mean his lovely daugh ter He paused, evidently agitated. "Adam and his good lady are well," an swered Kalph ; and as to Miss Lee, I under stand that she is on the eve of being mar ried " * "Married!" exclaimed Sir Edward, in a tone of voice which startled the hearers? " married !" and his countenance grew dead ly pale. "No, no," gasped Edward?" a sudden spasm Married. he muttered. "So this accounts for her not answering my letters " He leant his forehead on his hands, and for a few minutes scarcely a breath was heard. From this reverie he wae aroused by a merry peal of bells. " What are those belli?" he asked abstractedly " Tis the bells in the various steeple* in town pealing a welcome for your return," an swered Ralph " Indeed ! I did not suppose that I was so much thought of here," was the better Re joinder. ** You little know how much you are be loved,'' laid Kalph, with a friendly smile. II When will Adam Lee return ?" demand ed Sir Edward impatiently. "To morrow, likely?at all events in two days, as the third day is the day of eleotion. and he must be present,'' answered Ralph. " I must see htm, so I will wait till he re turns." Better humor seemed to come over him, and the evening passed more pleasantly away. The day of election came, and the usual crowd assembled It waa understood that Adam Lee waa to be elected without opposi tion, ao that the interest of contested election waa wanting to stir up p*rty spirit. To the ?aaaoBMot. however of the electors, placards were posted mpAfcieughoBt the burgh, and handbills and carde iadvatriously circulated, declaring that Adam Lee declined standing. *ud calling upon the elector* for their suffrages in fWvor of youaf Six Edward Emerly; Th& surprise of all parties was still farther ia when, on the Biront' i appearance on the huttings, deafening cheers frocu the whole multitude greeted him, and no sooner had the load plaudits ceased than Ralph Sebring, the wealthy partner of Adam Lee, proposed that Sir Edward should be appoint ed as a fit and trustworthy person to repre sent his native burgh in parliament. The motion was instantly seconded, and the elec tion of Sir Edward was carried without a dis sentient yoice. Before Emerly could recover from his surprise, he was chaired amid the joyous acclamations of thousands It seemed a perfect jubilee; bands of music perambu lated the streets?public tables were thrown open to all classes-wine and liquors of all kinds, with viands of every description, were amnly provided, and rich and poor all shared in tlie general j >y It was towards evening when tired with the exertions of the day. Em erly withdrew from the festive board, that a note was presented to him. lie broke it open and read? 41 Sir Ed ward? Before this reaches you, you will be returned as member for your na live burgh. My only motive in standing as candidate was to seo?re the election to your self, as I knew you w ^uld be forward in time. I am sorry that urgent business in London oompels me and my family ta proceed tbither. As your duties as Member of Parliament will call you speedily to the metropolis, I shall feel most happy to meet you. and congratu Inte you on your return Meanwhile, I am your honor's moat obedient ?ervaot, Adam Lec. Disappointments seemed drawing to a close, ind not a moment was lost till Emerly was osUhnste on his way to London. Unavoida le delays, however, arose on hi* journey, so that some d;?ys elapsed before he re iched his destination. Sight had advanced as he en tered London ; and the confused noise, hub bub, and uproar of the city, wure little calcu lated to soothe his already agitated mind lie drove at once to Fcnton's hotel, in St. Jauie*'s street, and late though the hour was, cent a card to the residence of Admi Lee. announc ing his arrival in the city aL I hid intention of Calling; but to his regret the note was re turned, as the family bad gone to Windsor, and were not expected back for some days Several days parsed when Dudley called on him, and requested him to attend a drawing room at St. James's Palace the following day This he declined on the plea of ill health. The following day, as he sat at the window of his apartment, watching with apathetic look the georgeous equipages which passed a'.ong towards the palace, and scanning the various brilliant liveries of the footmen who clustered like bees on every available part of each car riage as it whirled along, a ducal equipjge drove slowly up ; but being impeded by the dense m?ss of carriages which preceded it, paused opposite the wiDdow At that moment a young > fficcr of the Guards advanced auJ saluting the inmate* of the carriage, entered into conversation with them Tbe obstruc tions bciDg removed, the carriage proceeded, and as the young officer bowed and retired, a fair and beauteous face bent from the car riage window and returned his salute. Emer ly sprang to his foet? ho could not be mis taken that fair and lovely face waatoo deeply impressed upon his heart ever to be forgotten It was indeed Mary L?e ; but oh ' how much more lovely than when he had last paried with her '. lie flew from the apartment into tbe street, but reached it only to behold tbe princely equipage wheeled into the arched gate leading to the court of St James s Pal ace Bitterly did he regret birf folly at re fusing to attend the drawing-room ; and re turning to his hotel, he sat fretting with inn patience, watching with eagerness, as eacn carriage wheeled past, for tbe one in which ho had beheld Mary Lee. Fr-rn this state of mind he was aroused by his friend Dudley, who entered beaming with joy. "A thousand guineas, my dear friend, cried Dudley, " your secret is found out." ?? 1 do net understand you," said Emerly with surprise " Why, I have seen her?spoken to her " " Who in the name of wonder do you mean V "Miss Lee?the hello of the season?the admired of all admirers?beautiful as Vonus, and as rich as a princess! You blm-h, you rogue' Ha! ha! I have found you out at last!" "Whose carriage was she in?" inquired Emerly for a moment thrown off his guard. " So. then, you saw her V " Only for an instant, as she looked from the carriage window. She was presented by the Duchc.-s of Alinsbury. By the by. I think the sly old dowager wishes to shove her scape grace of a nephew into the young lady's good graces " ?' Who is he ?" " The young Earl De la Mark, a captain in the Guards, of a good old family, but plaguy little means." " So 'twas he who spoke to her at the car riage window," muttered Emerly Dudley remained and dined with him. and at night they drove to the Italian opera-house The magnificent decorations of the house?the brilliant display of rank and beauty in the crowded stalls, which rose tier to tier ab^ve each other, crowded with the jeweled and gemmed nobility of England?the gorgeous brilliancy of the scenery and overpowering effect of the music, passed from the thought? of Emerly, as he glanced his eyes around till they became riveted on the faoe of Mary Lee, who sat iu one of the boxas on the second tier opposite Her sole attention was deeply ab sorbed in the opera, and her eyes bent so steadfastly on the stage that she seemed to be annoyed at the remarks of the young Earl De la Mark, who lent on the side of the box, whispering now and then some unmeaning compliment into her ear A feel ng of rage j and jealousy shot through the bosom of Km erlp; and as he gated on tb*t calm, sweet, heavenly face, so mild so bright so beauti ful, h* feelings became more serene and hal lowed. i At the end of the first act, as the curtain dropped, she raised her eyes, and turning, smiled in answer to some remarks of the young Earl; running her eyes along the tier of boxes in front of her, her gase met that of Emerly. For an instant she sat spell-bound; then uttering a suppressed cry, half roso from her teat iler eountenanoe became deadly pule, and with a feobie moan she sunk faint ing in the arms of the Earl De La Mark, who fortunately caught her as she was sinking on the grrund. The curtains of the stall were instantly drawn, and the whole opera-house seemed in a commotion Emerly sprung from bis seat, and, darting through the lobby, rushed to tbe stall where she had been, but tbe box waa empty?all had gone. The following forenoon Etnorly prepared to visit Miss Lee, and the act of leavtug a note for his friend Dulley, tsxeuaing hii absence, when his eye caught a paragraph in the Morn ing Chronicle, reading thus: " Distressing Occurrence at the Oram house ?Wo regret to hear that the beaufitul and aooomplisbcd daughter of Mr. Lea, Leo ville, whose presentation at the Court we nv ticed in our last, was taken suddenly ill attic opera house last night.

' Emerly laid down the paper confused au 1 agitated. Starting up, he left the hotel, and hurrying through the streets reached Port man Square, whare the town resideaee ot Adam Lee was situated It front of the man lion-house hd observed a oarriage, ?arround ed by several footmen.
