"The Deserted \v ife. ** The M.sawu Bride," "Retribution," etc. [COJTISrBD.] The light of an ineffable joy broke over #la face ! Ob ' he had waited, patiently, hopefully, venr*. for that word, and at last he received it! thanks to heaven in the first instance' and then, pushing all the other letters unopened Mide, be sprung up, rang for his valet, and or dered bis valise packed and hontee put to the carriage. In twenty more minutoa be had reached the railway station just as tho cars were about to otart, and in three hours he was at Hyde Hall and standing in the presence of Eatelle !?she looking so beautiful and happy! With the old chivalric enthusiasm of devotion, be dropped, at once, upon his knee, and raised ber hand to bis, saying? "Forfour rear# I nave hoped and waited for one word fmtn yon. and at last, beloved, you have written?1' Come," and I am at your t'ect. as I said, with an unchanged heart!" '? But I," she said, deeply blushing, while she held both bands to raise him. " I, my Lord, have not an unchanged heart' for longer than fmr years I have loved you more than woman's tongue may tell?and never more, than at the hour in which we bade farewell, ad I thought, forever !" " I know it, beloved! knew it then ' knew it m'tcry*' I never doubted it! Could I be de ceived in the d?ar heart of the woman I loved ? No! and that was the secret of my patience!" he replied, taking his seat on the sofa by her aide. " And yet you never inquired and do not even now inquire, why, without explanation and without hope, I sent you from my presence! and why now. without apparent reason, I sum mon you back she said, as a shade of the old sadness fell upon her beautiful face. 44 Your motives, dearest, were, and are your own. Not until your spirit moves you to do so, shall you give them to me ! I have full confi dence in you, beautiful Stella!" " Confidence ' oh my God she exclaimed m a low. deep, thrilling voice. 44 Why. what is the matter, dearest?" She looked up suddenly, a smile of worship ?>ing love, breaking like sunlight over her dark ice. and said? '? Nothing, nothing, my lord! but that all your thoughts and feelings are so elevated be yond your poor Estelle's And yet she would aim'*! choose it so ! for could she be an angel, cho would wish you to be something far higher? a god!" ??tweet enthusiast' moderate your aspira tions, or the world and its people will disap point you ! Be not an idolator: worship only God, my Stella." Such was their meeting ! Yet, occasionally, throughout tho interview, a sudden shadow like the recurrence of a pain tul thought, would fall upon her bright face and then pane as it came. They were engaged, and within a few days the marriage was announced to take place on the first of Slay. But it was observed by the nearest friend* of the bride, that from the day of her betrothal, her spirit* had been marked by the strangest fluctuations. Sometimes with her beautiful dark face illumined with a deep, still, almost religiousjov, she moved about, as it were, on '? wiuged feet," or sat brooding in a happy trance. At other times, she fell into deep gioom and anxiety, as inexplicable as it was alarming to her friends, who greatly feared her relapse into the deep melancnoly "that had so long overshadowed he.-, and that they had grown to dread as a serious constitutional malady But they hoped everything from her approach ing marriage with the man she loveu. Lord Montrcssor observed with the deepest interest the uncertain moods of his betrothed; but with the high-toned sentiments that distinguished him. retrained from inquiring, and awaited her voluntary revelations. Atlas: the first of May, the marriage day, up >n which I have presented the parties to the reader, arrived, and all the hant ton. as I said, were gathered at the Hall or at the Church to do honor to the solemnities. And the expectant bride, in her bridal robe and veil, waited within her boudoir tho arrival ot the bridegroom, whom she had summoned to a private interview before they should proceed to the church. She had not long to wait. He who quickly responded to her slightest inclina tion. immediately obeyed her call. Yet when ahi heard his firm elastic step ap pr Mchiic, " Now God have merry on me '" she prayed, and covered her fa<^ with her bands. He entered, unannounced, and saying, 4 My beautiful Stella! I am here, you per ceive. by your commands!" S&e dropped her hands, and revealing a face p lie with misery, spoke in a thrilling, deep, im passioned tone? "You are here by my snpp'i ration, my lord ! I hsve no right to command " ' We will waive that! What is your will my dearest Stella?" ' My prayer, my lord?is first, for forgive nee^s." '? Foreficetuss'?mj Stella!" "Ay my dear lord! you see before you a p.uitent and a supplicant, who may soon be ? ?nj?sthing far more wretched " My Stella ! what mean vou*', ? Come to the window. Lord Montressor !*' she said, rising and preceeding him ''Look out." she continued, putting a*ide the rose-col <?rcd hangings, and revoaling a view of the park below, alive with its restless multitude ' What are nil tbeae people waiting for, my lord ?" 4 What are they waiting for. my Stella ??for that for which I also wait, with how much more impatience'" he answered while a deep flush of love and joy, for an instant, supplanted the anxiety on his face. - They wait to see a bride pass, where a bnle may never go !" she said, in a solemn voice. - Stella! great Heaven * what say you V* be ei::aimed, gazing on her with profound actin lehment. That the bride they expect is unworthy to ?tand before God's holy altar beside Lord Mon treseor!" ?? Unworthy, Stella ?

We find the following letter in tlio Troy (New York) Budget: .... ^ Washington May 11, 1857. L/ittors of the T/oy Budgtt: Spending a few days in this city, and having no particular pressing business tooccupy my time, I wandered over its entire boundaries and was agreeably astonished in viewing the extensive improve ments that are in progress in the construction o 1 splendid edifice a in almost every direction, an ] what teemed to mo strange, thc^o buildings are demanded by the rapid increase of its pop ulation. Building lots are selling readily at more than double the prices they can be pur chased in your city, and rents are in like pro portion higher than with you. An instance I give as an illustration of the price of building Tots. A few years since a cit lxen of your State purchased a block of lots for ?even hundred dollars that a few days since were sold for tJurry-seyen thousand dollar*. it is said that the city is increasing in popu lation at the rate of from six to eight thousand per annum, and what was once reproachfully termed by the eccentric orator of Roanoko "the city of magnificent distances," is most rapidly filling up with an enterprising and intelligent population. Indoed, so rapidly has been the lucrease of its population of late that all the church edifices m the city would not now scarce ly contain half its inhabitants ; and in this esti mate no reckoning is made of the many thousands or strangers constantly resorting to the capital tu purposes of business or of pleasure. r?u things has awakened a spirit of Lhurch extension among the various religious denominations in the city. A Washington cor respondent of one of the secular papers of Rich mond \ irginia, very justly remarks : " Almost all the Churches here are makine vigorous efforts to enlarge their borders; and surely, no place can need the renewing and sanctifying influences of the gospel mure than this .-aine Federal City." "No city in the Union," says the Evenine f.Ur' " making more advantageous advances than the city of ?V ashiugton. There is no city where the intrinsic value of property is more permanent For convenient of location, for salubrity of climate, for facilities of social in tercourse, for moral and intellectual culture, for opportunities to exercise a beneficial influ ence on human progress, we know of no citv in our beloved I mon that can compare with "this metropolis. Yi e do not wonder that people of taste refinement, and leisure should oonsider denoe^1011 * TWJ de,iirab,e I'l*ce of re8' On my arrival in this city, I expected, under the doctrine of "rotation in office," as it was promulgated by the truthful Washington let ter writers, to find my old friends, the First As sistant Postmaster General, lloratio King. Esq., of Maine, and the Chief Clerk in tho appoint ing office of that department, General Skinner, of your State, -rotated out" and like Nebu chadnezzar turned out to grass, and at a season of he year, too, when the withering influence of the iroets of winter had left nothing but bar ren commons to graze upon; but I was most agreeably disappointed to find them in their old stations untouched by the besom of reform, and high in the confidence of the new head of that department. It would have boen a pub lic less, that theso faithful and ooinpetent offi cers should have been dismissed, to give place to inexperienced and untried men, under the theory of "rotation." This act alone is enough to establish the wisdom and sagacity of Gov. Brown, the new head of that department, if he had given no other proof of his fitness and ca pacity for the resi?msib!e position assigned him by the new President. The little acquaintance I ha\e had with the Postmaster General has impressed me most favorably. I shall be great r d{*?PP0int*d ^ does not prove himself one of the best officers that has occupied that place tor years.

I owe them one for this, and will nay it with compound interest if ever a good cnance offers itself. I will, if I ever get in the vein, give you a description of a most amusing scene before Mr. King, by a belligerent representation in behalf of two opposing candidates for the office of Post master at "Buck Snort," in Alabama, under the " rotation" principle.

JOHN TOBIAS acknowledges the very literal encouragement already obtained, and further solicits the patronage of those who have not yet availed themselves of his aid. Persons that cannot conveniently call, by sending the glasses in use, and state how manv inches they can read this print with their spectacles, can be sup plied with such as will improve their sight.

HENRY A. WISE. Having been indticrd by a friend to visit the estab lishment of Mr. Tobies for the purpose of trying his glasses, 1 wns furnished by him with a pair slightly colored blue, which have afforded me more relief and gratification than anv I have ever tried. My sight, originally very g?Khl. was injured by writ ing and heading at niglit, frequently to a very late hour; but with the aid of these glasses I can study almost as late as ever, and that too without the pain I have previously suffered.

From an inequality in the visual range of my eyes, 1 have heretofore found 5reat difficulty in getting glasses of the proper focal istanoe. It afford* me pleasure to state that, by the aid of your optometer, this difficulty has l>een happi ly obviated, so that the glasses you furnished mc are decidedly the best adapted to my eyes of any I have ever yet used. Vsry respectfully, vonrs, R. B. DRANE, Rector of St. James's Parish. Department of Interior, May 8,1855. From natural defects and the unequal range of iny eyes, I have !>coii compelled to use glasses for seve ral year*. I have tried different opticians without obtaining glasses perfectly fitted to my eyes. Fonr months since Mr. To bias made two pnirs especially for me, which I have found to serve me perfectly. By the uso of his optometer he is enabled to adapt glasses most minutely to the eye.
