IMORENE, Tlic Spanish Peasant Girl. BY tIEUTESAXT MCItHAV. The civil wars which have distracted Spain so long, have often give rise to some of the most romantic incidents and scenes in'real life that have received the sanction of history. It's generally bred to the use of arms, seemed never to contoiit- ed unless wielding the implements of war- fare, and never moru happily situated than engaged in foreign 'or civil The events of our story occurred during this period of Spanish history, when her people were often arrayed ono against an- olher. It was just nightfall in the district of Ar- ragon, when a way-worn and weary sol- dier, wilh only his good and well tried To- ledo Llado by his sido, sank down before the door of a peasant's cot, too much ex- hausted even to .ask for tho refresh men Is lie so much needed. Scarcely a moment elapsed, however, before the inhabitants of the cottage, discovering his condition, were busily engaged in administering to his wants. Tlie sturdy peasant, who w.-is master of the cot, held .1 cnp of wine to his lips, while a young and tendr girl, not mite bloomed to womanhood, swathed a bandage about the bleeding arm, and bath- cd his temples with cool spring water. The soldier could only look his thanks, smiling languidly upon those who were tcnclinn" him. His wound was deep, nnd it profusely, lhat the cotlager was to raise him in his sturdy arm and bear3him inside the cottage, for ho could no longer support himself. Tho little household was all alms tic and confusion lo prepare proper aid and comfort for the wounded soldier. The matron was busy here, the father there, and the daughter in another place. He was carefully watch- ed lhat. night, but ere the next day's sun had set, the soldier had become delirious, nnd his wound presented to the eyes of the inexperienced cottager a most fearful appearance; reasoning from this, they feared that it must prove fatal. But the truth was, that tho fever that now raged in his veins was more from fatigue, loss of blood, and consequent svtToring, than from the immediate character of tho sword wound that liad disabled his nnu. Day after day passed, and still the sol- dier lay in a hall' dormant slate of leth- argy, the fever struggling with his const! ttition; one day seeming as though it must conquer him, and the next growing per- haps more fcoblo in its influence. Imo- ronc, Hie daughter of the cottager, was un- tiring in her delicate attention to Ihe stran- ger; night and day she -watched by his side, smoothed his his brow or moistened his parched lips. True, he KCCtncd scarcely to realize this kindness, yet a smile sornelimc-s lit tip liis palo ant Jinggard features, while Imon-nc was by his side. A strong constitution and youth a length prevailed over the fever, and by dny the soldier gradually improved, un- til at last lie was able lo go once more abroad. And now, aUcnuod by that gcn- lle, childlike form that had watc.he'.l hiir through ,1 tedious fever, tho soldier wan- iicred through shady groves, and overhil >iiJes and {.'''rouifh delis musical with bub fragrant with flowers rindliero they woui.; "H 'lowu together ijul he would tell hi'V such gallani of -inns and such sti.rii-s ol iniulovi and and bliss, lliat pour lino rcno was lost in bowilJermenl at Ins clo qucncc, and dwelt with rapl-uri-s uponUo real melody of U'w voico, Through all his character there "A" r tender inelaaicholly, mul lie half scornc-i the vcrv words he hiinselt' uttered, but she li'ttlu cf human nature, and nothing of UK; world, anil couM not FCC lliis.

VOLUME 1, NO 4. iis purse-had been sufficiently well filled o cuable him amply to pay for the shelter iclind enjoyed, and indeed tho. cottager' bought so agreeable and profitable a vrsi- ,or quite a godsend to his house. Otic lay a stranger passing that way, the sol- lier accosted !iim, and was for. a long while alone with him, deeply engaged in convcr- ation; and when the traveler had passed on, he wasjrioorly am! thoughtful, until at ast he told Imorene and her father that ie must bid them farewell, and once more oin in the noise and bustle of the times. Oh, shall we see you no more? asked !morenc, with heaving breast and Iremu- OUE voice that startled the soldier. I must go to my friends, and my home; am needed there, he answered. T'erhaps you will sometime return this vay, suggested "the cottager, and tben_we nay sit down onco'inoro together. I trust it may be so, was the reply of tho now guest, At that moment his eyes fell upon those of Imorenc, and starting as though an ar- had pierced his side, he said: Come, gentle one, let us walk once more through these loved and long to be rouiem- jercd scenes before I bid all farewell. A secret seemed to reveal itself to ihe :oldier as thev sat now together beneath a iank where oft tours together they had sat before .for Ho read now the heart if the gentle one by his side, and placing ,n arm about her waist, and looking into icr bashful face, he won from her the se- ret. And then, as if liis whole feelings at ncechaiiged, he told her ho was imwor- liy of her tender and virtuous affection; bat his had been a wild and reckless life, ,nd his hand in battle had often been lift- id to spill his fellow's blood: that be had ravailed much, and had bean hardened by- contact with the world, and in fact that immense wealth, dishonestly cnoncrh ob- tained, no doubt; but oft purchasing for him what he could not have otherwise ac-' quired. When we say that Don Moran- 20 was loved by none, and feared by near- ly all, wo have told his character. The only friend the peasant Gomardo and Iris daughter had made in Valcutia, was a friar of the convention of Santa Clara. He watched over Imorene, as if she had been his only daughter, A few months after the introduction of Imorene to Moranzo, he had in his vileness planned (.he dishonor of his beau- tiful dependent. All his advances had been met with such calm, but firm disre- gard, that he was at first disconcerted; but suddenly her father was taken ill, and plain and simple reasons, I claim her ro- sickened with fearful rapidity, until dcatli came to the relief of his sutYcrinfjs. to the Duke, who' satin state with oiliccrs about him. And now as Ihey cnlerc-d, the oflicer whose duly it was.- to do- so, called upon the priest to speak for his charge before the Duke, and show the rea- son why lie sliouM not consent ton union with one so vastly above her in fortune and blood, and thus benefit herself. May it plefiae you, noble Duke, this gen- tle maid is an but for pure and innocent as the morn- ing dew. This man, Don Mo- a bold, bad Juan: my, I care not for the frown of him or any The maiden loves him not. More than this, her young lieai'L loves another devo- tedly, 511 y noble Duke. And for these There was something about tho sudden death of her father that struck the priest as mysterious, lie had very suddenly sickened and died in a manner that to his experienced 'eye seemed to indicate that he had been poisoned. Whether this was intentionally done, or otherwise, he knew not, nor could Le conjecture, save by in- ference, and yet there was a lurking sus- picion in his mind that Don Moranzo know something more of his gardner's decease than he wished to acknowledge. The priest strongly suspected foul play, and that the unprincipled cavalier had taken summary means to rid himself of the gard- nor's presence, in order to accomplish his designs upon the innocent and unprotect- ed girl. This indeed was the case, for sLe was at once removed to his own bouse, and pla- ced under the strict guard of the domes- tics who knew their master's pleasure, and who had been taught to consider his slightest wish as their law. Here the peas- le could never make so swoct and gcntlo ant girl was miserable. Though young 1- i r _ _ j i i i 11 i being happy. She had no reply for his eloquence, but i single pearly tear drop. The soldier while at tho cot had said lit- .le of himself as it regarded his former life .vliilc Imorene and her parents were too considerate, humble as they were, to seek or that information which it was evident ,ho soldier did not dcsiic to communicate. 3iit nowns Imorene sat by his side and re- ilizetl that he was jibont to leave her, she could not but ask: And where is your home, Scnor Gomez' "or thus he had given his name to tho cot- ager. In Valentia, Imorenc. Ah, Imorene, lontinued lie, pressing lior hand wii.h his iwn, I could wisli my life had been dill'er- jntly cast, that I might dare lo love Lbec .nd wed llicc. liul alus, 1 am unfit lo do iillicr. I arn unworthy of thy love. And yet within this hour I hou' sweet las boon the brief period I have dwelt with thec; and alas! that I do love dice unwil- lingly! The following morning, when he left, he ave tho cottagers the contents of his purse, reserving a mere trifle for his jour- ney, and pressing a small but costly ring upon Imorenc as a parting gift, he touch- ed his lips to her forehead, and wended bis way on tbe mountain road toward his dis- tant home at Valentin. and his all. lie y went, and so on Six months had passed since tbe -woun- ded soldier left the hospitable cottagers, when one of those devastating tornadoes peculiar to tbo climalu, swept over the -pot, and left not one vestige standing of that peaceful habitation; cattlo were de- stroyed, vegetation blighted; everything was a wreck; and alas! with the rest was .ostlmoreue's herself and father tlonc escaping. 'What could they do whither go' Imorene suggested Valenlia. the father was half broken hearted by the loss of his companion cared not whither th foot they turned tlicir way towards Ihc distantcity, which Imort.no believed hold .ii.n she. loved. She hardly expected to find him, or if slic did, she knew not, that he slill loved her. But then she thought that she was so near him tho idea that she might pos- sibly see him gave to her loving heart incitement enough to carry her thitlicr, over mountain and plain, with willing-, though oftentimes weary feet. At length they came in of Valen- lia with it's moorish gates, it's many tur- rets, palaces and public buildings. Tint here they wero lost in the labyrinth of the streets, and the giddy masses and turmoil of the city. Thev had come without any and confiding, she cotild not mistake the fearful situation in which slie found lior- self. She saw clanger, but alas! she- knew no way to avoid it. Even the priest was no longer permitted to see her, and she was left indeed alone. Struck with Ihc noble nature of ilia girl, and subdued by her quiet firmness, Don Moranzo at last grew to look on her as something necessary to his existence, and even offered her his hand and title, if she would become his wedded wife. She had been placed on the altar reared in her own heart, and she could never love again. Don Moi-anzo had .been drinking deep one dav, and al Jasl came to Imorone's apartment. "She saw liis excited slate, and trembled as he c-amu lo her side. Come, my prclly one, aud give me a kiss. Nay, Signor, I pray you respect my lonely situation; I buseirh yon. But one single Imurcuc, for good night. Signer, Signor'. I am alone and defence- less, poor weak girl. You would not strike me dumb with fear. But must nnd will have one. Hold, she cried, raising her outspread hands toward him, you are strong and can compel me to this indignity, What ring is that? interrupted the cava- lier, as his eyes by chance rested upon her hand, where they riveted. answered Imorcno, it is the gift of one who was kind to me. Let me see it, said Don Jlornnzo, half sobered by some surprise occasioned by the jewel. After a moments examination of thai ring, tbe cavalier with seemingain.'izcment returned it and left Imorene at onto alone. As imiel) surprised as delighted at lliis, the poor girl soon fell asleep in innocent repose, but was astir ,igiin Avith Lhc morn- ing Hgiit. By Koine Ir.clcy chance she dis- covered an iiiiguarllcd door, through which she hurried down the garden paths, and knowing vi ell the grounds, was soon outsido the palace walls, and hastened tow- ard the neighboring convent of Santa Claia, where she threw herself upon the protection, of the goof, priest, who had so long befriended her. The enamored cavalier at once piispect- cd whither Inioreno had gone, aiitl soon lo definite purpose, and now entirely lease from any and'nil- responsibility this man. VTliere is he whom the maid asked tho Duke calmly. At thai moment there rang through the courtroom of the palace a scream so shrill and piercing, that every one sprang to their feet, while Imorene, throwing back the abundance of dark curls that screened her face, looked toward tbe chair of State, where stood the Duke, now a picture of amazement. It is Signer Gomez. Imorene! ejaculated the Duke, spring- ing forward just in tiiije to support licr fainting form. Imorcne, it is indeed thy friend and longer the poor ami wounded soldier, but if tbou wilt so per- mit, liiy future husband, the Duke of Va- lentia. Imorens at once revived, On that breast she wasliappy indeed. She feared nuth ing now, though sho sobbed as though her heart would break. Turning to Don Mo- ranzo, the Duke said: Your suit and audience arc ended, and you may retire, Signor. To (he good pries: he propertied his warm thanks and a substantial evidence, of his regard: and leading Imorenc to his chair of state, he seated hcv.by his side, and declared her the future Duchess of Valentin.
