The extraordinary event* which, under the above title, I shall detail to my readers, re quire no preface. Id the pretty, and even now romantically situated vicinage of Hampatead, proceeding further north than the old suburban village, -with all its well-known aaeociatiens. was a country-house, that went somewhat oddly by the name of Mayfield. This bouse stood very nearly on th? brow of a hill, and commanded a charming view over many miles' of highly cultivated couotry. It was surrounaea oy a very small Kind or balf fitrk, half garden, and the persons residing in t rented a field of a boat twelve acres close to their home, from which each summer a toler .able stack of sweet, fine hay was procured, to the greet delight of a oouple of ponies who luxuriated upon it. The owners and occupies of Mayfield were n old oouple of the name of Cattiey. They had one only son, an adventurous, but fiue spiritei and good-hearted boy, who, to the grent grief of Mr. CaMley, and to the greater grief still of his wife?if loud and tearful de monstrations portrayed greater grief?was fullV imurea^ed with Shikincirii'i ill** ?K?? *'H?me-keeping youths have ever homely wits." 80 he determined upon seeing something of the world before he settled down, either in town or in country, to the enjoyment of the very handsome income which would in the course of nature be his. There was a long struggle with parental -fondness before the consent t?f the father and mother could be prooured to Edward Cattley's departure to the Mauritius. Those islands, which we wrested from the French, but which retain ao muoh of their French character engrafted upon the nearly tropical manners and customs of the real island race, erer had for Edward Cattley an attraction that, at some period or other of his life, was sure to drag him to their verdant shores. And so, by dint of perseverance, Edward fairly started for the isles of beauty with the The young man was nineteen years of age, and he made a solemn promise that he would, under any circumstances, not be more than three years away from home. And so he departed, and a gloom fell upon the old house at home. It wad not until he was gone past recall that the old ceuple began to feel how completely bound up in his exist ence, and even in his presence, their lives were. But days lengthened into weeks, and weeks accumulated into months, and months became a year, and the time of the return of the wan derer was approaching; and when half his pe riod of absence had passed away, it was to Mr. and Mrs Cattley as if some dreary night was flitting by, and the first streak of dawn was mantling the east. Two years of the three were gone. A letter bad come from Edward, stating that he was well and happy, and that the dear thoughts of home were still with him, and that he would be back in the three years that were passing WAT. Then the last winter that waa to paa8 over Majfield House before the expected return came, and tbe loud storm-wind houled about the old gable end* of the place, and the snow laj deep on the ground. It waa a fearful night, when several of the old trees aboat the house were laid prostrate by a gale that at sunset had sprung up from the northwest, that a loud knocking at the outer door of Majfield Houae, just as the old couple were about retiring to rest, disturbed the whole household, and brought many fears to the hearts of the anxious father and mother. There were some five or six servants kept in the house, for the meaos of the Cattleys were much greater than their style of living ap peared to indicate; and m eld Mr.Cattley went naif way from the dining-room, where they had been sitting, to the ball, he heard some 4? _ ? I _ _ m * I ,* * * one que?u<'uiiig me wa ouuer, wno naa nar ried after the footman, whose duty it was to open the door. " Is this Majfield House ?" asked a strange I voice. . " Yes, sir," was the reply. " And is Mr. Cattley within ?" " Yes, sir " " Will you say. then, that Mr. St. George, from the Isle of Bourbon, is anxious to see him ?" Now, ?Id Mr. Cattley knew perfectly well that the Isle of Bourbon was the old French name that one of the islands of the Mauri ? tins went by; and, the moment he heard the message given, he felt oertain he was about to hear something of his boy But what would that something b? ? Would it be disastrous or joyful ? That waa . _ ?.?_ - * * * - - me question; ana 11 wu a question wfeich paled the cheek of Mr. Cattley, and set bis heart beatin* at a most unusual rate. Mrs. Cattley, too, had heard, while she stood at the open door of the dining-room, sufficient of what the visitor said, to feel that it had some connection with her son, and she ran oat of the hall, crying oat, " Oh, sir, sir! whoever and whatever you are, tell me at once, what yoa know aboat my son !" "All is well with Edward Cattley," said the stranger. Neither tho father nor the mother noticed the peculiarly strange and solemn way in whicn the stranger uttered these words, but they both exclaimed together. "Thank God ! thank God' Welcome sir, xeleome te May field with such news. Come in. sir?come in'" Old Mr. Cattley almost dragged the JtraDger ioU? the well-warmed, well-lighted dining room, and then thej saw that he waa a slight made young man, ef about twenty years of age. and that there was a peculiarity of com plexion about him, which, if it did not stamp nim at once as a Creole, at least signified that he had black blood in his veins. He had the vivacious eyes of the oreole race, and the dark olive complexion, but his hair and the hape of his head and features ware decidedly European. " My dear sir, pray sit down," said Mr. Catt 1 mv "VMl ikll) Bin ?na Km nmk*. bly not dined J*t<?what My you? What shall we order for you?" "Nothing, kind friend*, nothing for me." replied Mr. St. George, u he warmed himself. "My heart is too heavy to permit ma to par take of your hospitality " "Your heart heavrf" gasped Mr. Cattley. "Good Heavens ? cried the mother; "then it is ill news yon bring !" The young stranger shook his head. Mrs. Cattley burst into tears. Mr Cattley strove to speak in tone* of firm ness, as he clasped his hands together, and said, "For the lore of Heaven, sir, tell us all, for suspense is the worst agony the heart ean suffer. The young man was silent for a few mo menu, and then, with a deep sigh, he said, ? . i i a. .sr. .a.aI a ii #. ? _ "It^wouia N idktiuod ina iouj tor aim u) keep from 70a the information I hare come to many mile* to impart to job. Yonr eon" "Fp-ek* oh. speak"' " My ton, mj son'- screamed Mrs Cattley. 14 Your son is no more." I will not try to paint tha grief of the moth er, there ere foclings too aaored for the pen to pietara. It wm a terrible convulsion of des pair?a storm of sorrow that might well leave the heart wrecked by its blighting progress. The father paced the room, and wrung bis hands and moaned. 0 is. mf Sot' mr Door hot! Dead?

Edward Cattley was iioch beloved in the island of Boarbon, and reared into the best society in the place; but he had the mis fortune to meet at a ball, which was given b7 ! a merchant named Antomus, a Greek, with a it. ? n.* 1_ mi* uiau ui vuo uauioui r virus, ? creoie. xaii man was a gambler, and he muoh pressed young J Cattley to call upon him the next day; and he j not knowing who and what Petrus was, did call upon him, and was pressed to play, there being 1 several persons present. For a long timo Kd ward steadily refused, and the party dined 1 and sat rather late, when cards and dice were [ again introduced, and as Edward Cattley saw t that he gave great offense by not playing, he t said, ' I will, for once, forego my resolution y not no play; but only for once!" " , " Ood bless him!" moaned the fathef. "Then," continued Mr. St. George, "he agreed that he would piny for one hour, but that at the end of that time, whether a winner or a loser, he would leave the party. He played for the hour, and was a considerable winner." "Alas! alas !" sighed Mr. Cattley. " A considerable winner, he rose from the table with bis watch in his hand, saying, ' I will now, as I said I would, go.' But Petrus was chagrined at his losses, whioh,'being an adventurer, be could ill afford ; and he loudly insisted that no man had a right to leave off a winner until bis antagonist choose." " Bat iny son had tn&de a declaration of the time he meant to play, before either winning or losing," said Mr. Cattley. "Just so. That was his agreement, and he left the house, but he was Allowed by Petrus." " Oh, Heaven !" " He was followed by Petrus. There was a lonely path by a precipice, which Edward Catt ley would have to take in order to reach his own homo. The precipice sunk down to an inland pool of salt water, which was unfathain able. It is supposed to have some communica tion with the sea, but it has never yet been traced." " Mj son ! my son !'* screamed Mrs. Cattley. " I shall see that pool in my dreams !" " Go on. sir," said the futhej. " Petrus attacked young Mr. Cattley at the edge of the precipice, and taking him at' una wares. he flung him over its brink, to rise no more!" The father and mother looked petrified at this recital, and could not say a word. Mr. St. George continued : 411 was so much attached to Edwsrd Cattley, and we were such good friends, that I would myself have arrested Petrus. but he fled, and left the island so soon as he had done the deed. I carefully examined the spot of the disaster, and guessed what had happened. I dived into the pool twioe to see if I could recover the body of my friend, but all in vain. Were I to live, though, fur a thousand years, I should never forget the hideous monsters of the sea that inhabit that poal, and who with their long fibrous arms strove to grasp me as I sunk into its depths." The young stranger shuddered, as if in recol lection of the terrors he had braved in the hor rid pool. W onder, fear, grief, despair?all were de picted on the countenance of the Cattleys; and it was late in the night before they,with heavy hearts and with tears that seemed as if they would know no cessation, sought peace. The young stranger was accommodated with thejbest room in the bouse; and soon, beyond the sobs that might have boen heard from the cnuinoer in me occupation oi tne Uattloys, all was still at Mayfield for that night. The morning came, but it brought with it* returning light no diminution of the grief <*f the Cattleys. On the contrary, they seemed to puffer more and more, until in the ceurso of about a week their dejection had reached a kind of climax, after which the heuliug effect* of time began to exercise an influence. A month?two months?six months passed away, and the Cattleys had somewhat recovered from thfcir grief. To Be sure that six months had aged tbem both more than the previous six years had done; and Mrs. Cattley was ever ready with her tears whenerq? by any accident her son was mentioned; but it wa? to bo hoped that further time would "heal tho wound, although it could not obliterate the scar." And during all this time Mr. St. George re mained the guest of the Cattleys. They let him occupy?the room that had been their son's; and as often as be offered to go, they pressed him to remain. lie was kind and amiable in the extreme. To the old gentleman he was like an attached and most considerate son; and to Mrs. Cattley be was so gentle and affectionate that she felt degree of affection for him that gew stronger day by day. At length he announoed that he " must go." " You will understand, Mr. Cattley,'' he said, '-and you too, dear madam, that I was in animation at the Island of Bourbon, which I gave up to oome to you with my sad informa tion. The money I had I spent in coming here, and it is now my duty to seek for some employment." Mr Cattley exchanged elances with hia wife, and the nodded to him. It was evident that they bad an understanding about something, and what that was became evident in Mr. Cat tley 'a next words.

A Savannah correspondent of the Auguata Dla patch givea the following account of the affair: "1 guess It will not be long before a muaa la kicked up in Savannah.' Yesterday an English Caotaln of a Livernool bark waa tarred and ered (cottoned) by the Rattlesnake Club for asking a colored lUvtdori to dine with him and family.
