BY MRCTBMAIIT MUtBAT.  The civil wars which have dmlrBCted Spain so long and oft have given ri*e to some of the mo«l romantic incidents and scenes in real life that havo received the sanction of history. Its sons, generally bred to the use of arms, seemed never contented unless wielding the implements of warfare, and never more happily situated than wheft engaged in foreign or civil wsrs. The events of our story occurred during this |»eriod of Spani. h history, while her people were often arrayed again*teach other.  It was just nightfall in the district of Arrtgon. when a way-worn and weary soldier,* with only his good and well-tried Toledo blade bv hw side, sank dow n before the door of a peasant’s ewt, too much exhausted even to ask for the refreshments which he so much needed. Scarcely a moment elapsed, however, before the inhabitants of th«* cottage, discovering his condition, were busy in admmis’ering to his wmt*. The aturdy pea-ant who was m**ter of the cot held a cun of wine to his lip*, while a young and tender girl, not quite bloomed to womanhood, swathed a bandage about his bleeding arm, ami  her own  and had brrn hardened by contact with placed on the sltar reared ,    .  the world; and, in short that he cpuld heart, and she could rieVef love fg«in.  never make so sweet and gentle a being  hippy.  She had no reply for his eloquence but* a single pearly tear-drop.  The soldier, w hile at the eot. had #aid little of himself, as it regatded his former life, while Imorene and her parents were  Don Mm *nr,o had been drinking deep one day, and at a Ute hour came to Imo^  rene’s apart tied. She m»w his rgnlNf state, and trembled as he ckme to hef tide.    **    |    A.s    j  *Come, my pretiy one -give rot akiss.' •Nay, signor, I pray you respect my  tearfully la-bekl tWn follow their evil aru! bathed his temples with coo! jspring water  (VulwrkuHl, Md.    [*Ju«*o    IV,    mr.H    j  John t. wogdside;  MAM'rACS’'UULR ARL Li ‘II !’• IR  umvLcmvim dteam Saw Mill,  svsrsaf*« 'tr'M&ui  OUMBfiltUAND, MO.

He was carefully watched that Bight, but ere the next day’s sun had set tlie soldier had become deiir ous, and his wound presented to the eye# of the inexpetienced cottager* the mo»t fearful appearance, and, rrai-oning from flu*, they feared that it mu«t prove fatal.

He cared not whither they went and so »*n loo‘ they turned their way towards the dfttant citv, which Imorene believed held him she loved.

A discriminating observer would have thought him a man di#gueted with the world, and yet he was, sreminfiy, ton  young for «uch a conclusion, lie might he twenty-five or twenty-*ix—not older. There wa* some singular reason why he should still remain at the cottage, now that he had been well enough to have walked a doxen league* if uacas^ary. it was not lova that kept him there, for, though Imorene loved him so deadly that every look and motion betrayed the language of her heart, yet the eoldier, though uniformly most gentle, considerate, and attentive to her, never spoke of love.  Months had passed since the wounded soldier first aat himself down before the peavant'e door. Ilia pwrse had been sufficiently well filled to enable him amply to pay for the shelter he had enjoyed, and indeed the cottager th ought so agteeabb-aud profitable a vi»itor quite a g id-rend to bis house. One day, a stranger passing that way, the soldier accosted bun, and waa for a I ng while alone with him, deeply engaged in conversation; and when the traveller had passed on he wa* moody and thoughtful, until at list fie fold Imo-reue and her father that he mn*tbid them (arewelt, and once more juin m the noi*r ami bustle of the limes.

'Perhaps you will sometime return this way,' suggested the cottager, 'and then we may sit down one# more together/  •1 trust it may be so/ waa the calm re* ply of the now thoughtful guest.  At that raomeut his eyes fell upon those of Imoreue, aud, starting a* though an arrow had pierced his side, he taid:  Come, gentle one, let us walk one*  He therefore said;  •One wvy, and one w ay only, will I deliver up to you this a.aid.*  •Name it.*  •In the presence of the duke/  •The Duke P  •Ay.’    •  •It's- useless to annoy him.’  ‘It is the only way.’  *'T»s well.

Hi* principal claim to thr honor in which he wa*> held in tlie di-trict and court wa* owing to hi# immense wraith, di#hone»t'y enough obtained no doubt, but oft purchasing for him what he could not have otherwise acquired. When we say that Don M* ranxo wa* loved by none, and feared by urariy ill, we have told hi* chaiactrr.  The only friend the peasant Gomardo and hi* daughter had made in Yairuria was a frier of the couvent of Santa Clara. He watched over Imorene a* carefully as if the had her n hi- outy daughter.  A few month* after the introductitwi of Inrorme to Don Mortozo, he had in hi# vitenese planned tl»e dishonor of Ina beautiful dependant. AH hit advances had been met with such calm but lirrn disregard, that he wa* at first dftconcerted ; but suddenly her father wa# taken ill, and •rekened will* fearfot rapidity, until dtath came to the relief of hi* suffering*.  There wa* something about the sudden death of her father that struck thepiiest as mysterious. He had very suddenly •tckeued, and died in a manner that to hi* experienced eye seemed to indicate that be bad been poisoned. Whether this wa* intentionally done, or otherwise, he knew not, nor could be conjectute, save by inference ; and yet there waa a lurking tU'picion in hi* mio*l that Dm Moraaxo knew som-tbing more of his gardener’* decease tha t he wished to acknowledge. The priest strongly suspected foul play, and that the unprincipled ea*R«i«r bad taken summary means to rid himself of the gardener% praseuce, in order to ac-coropiUh hi* dcaigus upon the meoeent and unprotected girl. Thi* was indeed the ca-e. for she wa* al once removed to her own h»u*e, and placed under the Mrict  H   ..   _    guard of domestic who knew their master’s  belWeT bid all fare- pleasure, and wh»hsdfoeo taught In «o*i-j Rider his slightest wt»!t as their law.
