Kate Cleveland was the daughter of a liver Cleveland an englishman who having fallen in love with a Young lady far above him in rank and seeing his love Reni prorated found that Only by an elopement to could secure the prize he was anxious to secure. The lady consented to tho proposal and the two fled and embarked As emigrants to the new country. Levo enabled them to Cope courageously with All the trials and obstacles which they had to encounter in the new country before or. Cleveland had Seo Rod for himself the Independence of a substantial Farmer and the Possession of a Fine Traat of land in the Cumberland Tulloy. Quot _ and when after they had been married Lor several years a daughter came to enliven their household and to draw the Bonds of love closer they resolved to bestow All their care upon their child and to give it the education which their own training in England enabled them to Impact. Kate became therefore the wonder of the country for she was not Only skilled in the Ordinary branches of education but could al so draw and paint the beauties of nature Tell the names of the stars in the Blue Ether and play the guitar which 9he accompanied with her Beautiful voice. But not Only her mental hot a Lew her physical education her parents took care to attend to and Kate became an expert equestrian Learnt to follow the Fjell Fig Loo after the prowling Fox and coi ild if be Beggary fire a gun with a precision by no.

Kate explained the cause of her mishap in a few words to the Young Soldier and then mounted again her now subdued Colt she suffered him to escort her on foot toward her Home. But when he bad reached the Limite of the space to which his wanderings were can Fine he stopped and with a somewhat confused air said ,. A a miss Cleveland your and language have vividly called Forth the recollections of my Distant Home and brought before my mind the image of a beloved sister now thinking of her absent brother and soothing the fears of an anxious Mother. I mob wish that i could accompany you a Little farther and listen to your voice but tho chains of the captive Are around me and prevent me from going any he then turned his head away and after a Fow Seconde during which be sought to overcome his feelings he continued a Farewell May it not be lbreyer.�?�. Kate who was a trite torn an in All. Her feelings had become interested in the Fate of the Young Soldier and pitied his condition she Felt As if it were her duty to do something to soften his lot replied Quot nay Grieve not major you know the Fate of iyar you soldiers speak so much inlay Sou change your position and i Hope by the time we meet again Yon will Greet to with better news. So Good Bye for the present und a i often this Road you May soon come to bring me better a a dry returned that Day in a sadder mood to his quarters Blit no one disturbed him with questions. A i i i -. A a Many a time after that did he meet Kate Cleveland est her by the Brook or in the Woods in the Hill until to great an intimacy had sprung up Between them that neither hesitated that love not anti Idelt Bro Light them together. A Happy Days were those for the Young lovers and the one forgot for hours that he was a Soldier Iti Tbs hands of Hie enemies while the other never thought of the fact that she was pledging her Faith to one sworn to fight against her Friend a and Yootin Brynden. Every afternoon about four d look would Kate find an excuse to Nio unt her accompanied by a Fine Large dog Ehe was sure to take the Road Tai what is known As a a wag Unoras Road a and if she the first at the rendezvous she was sure to chide her Knight a soon As he oame in sight for his want of gallantry in letting her wait for Liim. N o. 41 chapter ii. In the meantime when the tories of the neighbouring country found that the two Gallant British soldiers were left to traverse the count for without a guard they determined not Only to effect their a soaped but oven to Bon Cert for rising Ned then to disarm �11 the re Bels and take Possession of the town and the neighbouring property in the name of King George. Letters were sent to them by a simple Hoy whom they rightly judged nobody would sue Peot for Pete was considered by neighbourhood a natural stupid. But they took also the precaution to request the major to Burn All the letters As soon As he had read them. I heir plans were Well Laid and might have led to a great Deal of mischief had it not been fur a Happy coi Dent which proved however disastrous to the heroine of our tale. One Day when Pete had been sent to tho major with some letters written in French communicating tho final arrangements made by the tory partizan poor Pete had lingered do Long about the Creek where he was accustomed to look for Andre that he became hungry having to eat since Early morning. Thinking that he ought to Tako cafe of himself in order to Onro for his employers interest lie want to tho House of a or. Brown who Hud a farm in tho neighbor Hood and asked for some bread and mrs. Brown gave him loth. In the meantime while he was still eating or. Brown a staunch rebel entered tho House and spor tingly inquired of Pete if the English had already succeeded in making him Promise to enlist As a drummer. Poor Pete thought that to was suspected and having a wholesome dread of the summary proceedings so often Trade use of by both parties hastily replied a i ainu to Doin nothing with the English i Only conies to talk with the a with what Captain a inquired Miv Brown. A with him that sits hero by the Creek with his Gal a replied poor Pete More and More frightened on seeing or. Browne a Stern countenance overshadowed by an angry frown a a and what does the Captain Tell you a a continued his questioner. A a nothing at All he axes Only about the folks.�?�. Or Brown now suspected that the major had some sinister motive in watching the boy and determined to watch them both. He therefore Eaid nothing but determined to watch the Hoys course. A a when Pete had satisfied the or Avinge of his left and returned to Bis Post near the Bridge. He had not been Many minutes on his seat beneath the big Elm tree before major Andre arrived and seeing the Roy inquired if he had any message for him. Pet i who still recollected Browne a threatening face replied with some hesitation. A a nothing particular Only the folks likes to see you. ,. A a a a and Havo they Given you no message for me a a a a a no Captain they did no to Tell me anything a Andie who had became rather impatient at the More than usual stupidity of the boy and suspecting something wrong inquired More sternly a a and have you no paper for me nothing to give me a a the boy then began to look cautiously around him and perceiving no one near Drew from the lining of his Cap a couple of letters and gave them to andro. The latter then hastily opened them and his free brightened As he read the contents. He gave the boy half a Crown and told him to go Buck and Tell the people that All would be right. When the boy had left him he again Drew Forth the Friendly epistles and after having re perused them he murmured a one Day More and i shall be free and again on my Onward Lourae the to glory and Kate Bhe will be Trio companion of my life. Of that to Morrow Wero Only passed Over 1�?� but there was an Eye upon him which had watched with no Friendly interest All tho gleams of Joy that had so suddenly illuminated Hie countenance and the owner of that Eye Brown satisfied that something wrong was going Ono hastened to gather his friends together to consult with them As to Lebest Way to discover prevent and punish the treachery which he suspected. Not Long after Pete had left cate came dashing Down the Hill on her White Pelfrey and seeing her Lover already at the trusting place sprang lightly out of the Saddle and in a moment was by his Side. Andre could not Long conceal from her his Hopes and anticipations he told her that that vary evening he intended to take Back Bis parole and then make his escape during the night by the Aid of Hie friends and then concluded a a to Morrow der Kate at Sunrise we al meet at the great Oak where the Creek makes a Bead to bid a final Farewell to those Lovely aunts and you and i to free and United forever. Does thy heart not beat More wildly my dear Kate at the thought of visiting old England the Home of thy fathers at being a leered by my fond Mother for having Imide her child to Happy a but the Maiden replied a i too have a Mother and a dear father whom i must leave behind a and then she continued in a still sadder tone a a besides that a feeling which l cannot describe forbids my sharing your unalloyed pleasure. Are you sure of your friends ? May there not be some treachery to to feared ? Are your arrangements made so that you do not jeopardize you Lifa in the Enterprise dear a a a nay a replied her Lover a fear nothing Kate Only fail me not at the bout of Sunrise. And to make Assurance doubly sure i will now. Return at an Early hour to Lull All suspicions. So Farewell till Anim a printing for the first time a kiss upon her Roey lips he assisted h or to mount her Pelfrey and when Ehe was quite out of sight he returned to his quarters in Hanover Street. Brown had in the mean time Coll noted together almost All the members of the company of which he Wab the cite twin and having Laid before Thorn the grounds of his suspicions it was Quot determined to seize the major Mako him give up the papers which Pete had brought him and then to make him confess who were his tory friends. But when they arrived at the Elm tree they found the place vacant but discovered by the Trail that a third person had been with the major and that person a Woi fian. This Only increased their Sii Spilions and they immediately hastened to Wiir lilo when they reached the Borough the Captain ordered his company to Sufron Kidd the House and then told the excited crowd that bad gathered around what he had seen by the Bridge and his suspicions that the tories were in Corres Denoe with major Andre. The major was now brought Forth but refused to. Acknowledge As True the allegations made against him. They then searched his clothes add found the letters delivered by Peis. Brown hastily Toro them open but would no tread d word of the contents. The letters were written in French and Thero was no one in the Borough that could interpret when Brown saw himself die covering the plot he became so enraged that he determined to execute Lynch Law upon the British officer and commanding Hie men to make everything ready to had already Laid his bands upon the.

Mrs. Ramsey was it is True at All times a woman whose Patli it was nut Safo to Cross when Alio was determined upon anything and she Camo. Evidently with no in terhost to Aid Brown in his violent acts moreover Brown had been an approx tie to her husband and Hud known from experience May a time that Dame Ramsey s hand was a rather Lenvy one. When descending in anger and As it is hard to divest ourselves wholly of Early impressions to Felt always an undefinable Awo in the rese Bce of his masters when the old lady reached the parties and had Learned what had taken place and brow do a present intention Ehe rebook him.

But hour alter hour passed Alad poor Kate was still alone at the rendezvous.1 she did not dismount Bhe did not ride up Ana Down the Road she Only sat in the Saddle in a sad and expecting attitude her whip fallen from her hand the rein was lying on the Pelfrey a neck while her Light hand supp dated her Cheek As if she were Bitting in an Arm chair and her dyes were fixed upon the Gorge through which she expected Andre to come. At fuse after the Suu had been so High that it Over her head a horseman approached through the Gorge but Ponto did not Spring Forward to Greot him and when he came near she discovered that it was one of her neighbors just returned from town.

He then proceeds with a Chamberlain who boats the Imperial Hart Ilum agon to the Sublime Porte. A military band precedes him and soldiers Are drawn up along tho Road who present arms. At tho head of the stairs the bridegroom is received by the grand vicar conducted by him into u room where All the ministers Aye assembled and the Silitti is rend aloud. The ceremony corresponds to the betrothal. The marriage ceremony is much like that of Ordinary turkish Nobles. If the bridegroom be Rich he himself pays for the Trousseau but As a general Rule the Sultan bends him Money for it. The presents Are placed in Gold or Silver baskets on Whoso lids Flowers or Billing doves Are represented and consist of diamonds rubies pearls diadem bracelets girdles Caps furs Gold embroidered dresses and shawls. The bridegroom receives from his father in Law a splendid Sabre buttons and a watch and Chain All brilliantly sparkling with diamonds and from his Bride a. Rosary of Fine pearls and Iuen of every description. The custom has been abolished of ministers making presents. The dowry of the Princess is most Madame olymphia Siw a dress which Cost above fifteen thousand pounds. But Little of the Fine texture was visible beneath the embroidery and pearls. 1. A when the presents have been delivered to the bridegroom who Bride proceeds on the next morning to his House in order to look it his arrangements. Our authorities were present when the Princess Fatami the betrothed of Ali Ghalib Pasha paid such a visit. 1 a accompanied by a numerous suite the Bride drove1 in a state Carriage which has Cost �64,500, through the densely crowded streets. She wore a Blue sky silk dress covered with a mass of pearls and diamonds and her head was completely veiled in a texture of Gold thread. The bridegroom received her on the threshold of his House. He was a handsome Young Roan but naturally somewhat Paie and excited and As he bad never seen his future wife and on this oct amp Sion could Only notice Hor she was Over Laden with ornaments. When to had saluted her with a deep bowl tit d led her into the House he walked away again. The first visit of the Bride is intended to enable her to examine the internal arrangements of her future Home without any obstacles or disturbance. The actual meeting of the new couple takes place on the by re Ning of this Day. At eight of clock the Princess proceeds to the state rcom of the Palace prepared for her and seats herself upon a throne two ladies of Honor station themselves on either Side of her. At the feet of the lady who a a splendidly dressed and covered with a Large veil lies an embroidered Walro Etythe husband supped at his old residence with his relatives a Doneada add said his prayers in a mosque. Shortly after nine of clock he proceeds to the Princess and is conducted to her by two eunuchs who Are awaiting him at the door. The first thing he does is to Kneel Down on the carpet Tad Pray. When this is conc old ded he approaches his Toile submissively kisses her hand and says a few words that occur to him at the moment the ladies of Honor then remove her veil and whether he has married a pretty or ugly woman. Whether she is pretty or the contrary a Princess will always let her husband feel How High she stands above him. A e of Cupie a room next to Here a and must wait her commands there at All hours. Whether he has friends Liere or be alone a of soon As one of her Erin ohs summons him to her presence he must Rise at once make a Temeza that is to say touch the ground and then his forehead Stith Bis hand a anti proceed at once to her he is expected to stand until she requests him to be seated. If he wishes to a visit to her family or to on bids irises to must first ask Hor leave and if be Rem Ains Pway unusual by late a must inform her of it and the cause. His wife never lets him go qui alone some of Hep eunuchs him and would inform her were be to do anything that was such marriages the couple do hot take their meals together. His Are sorted up to him in his room without any Cepo Mony while she eats hers like a Princess. At mealtime a handsome carpet is spread in her room and a Large of Small table placed upon it according to whether the lady dines alone or has invited other ladies. Before the meal a Young slave who has no other duty but this kneels before her holds up a Golden Wash by sin and pours Luke Warro water Over her hands from a Oan in the shape of a greek aug bore. Another female slave hands her a Napkin of White silk with Gold fringe. The Kithca is outside the harem and All dishes Are brought in a Basket lined with White Muslin. The Basket is sealed up in the Kitchen and before ther Princess tastes a dish a lady in waiting examines the seals to see that Thoy Are unbroken. After dinner during which female slaves perform Musio the Princess washes her hands again and then proceeds to another room where she performs tier after this the commence. Reclining on a divan she smokes a pipe or Cigar while slaves read or sing to her. A if she has invited any lady friends there is a concert and a Bullet or a theatrical performance it rare fruits pastry and Coffee Are handed round. If tho Princess desfred to see gentlemen she gives her husband orders to Send invitations to certain persons. Such guests assemble in a room divided into two compartments by a guilt grating. On Onje Side is the Princess and her ladies who see and hear without being seen on the other Side Are the gentlemen who select such topics of conversation As will please her Imperial highness. A the husband has no this serfdom. His Princess can be separated from him at any moment but he must stick to ter. He Lias no other Consolation but one that his him nothing and that he has a share of the fabulous luxury which his wife indulges in. These husbands of Princess must be. Regarded As the scapegoats which tho male sex offer up As a punishment for its contempt of women. At any rate the pro i by Tim of such husbands having a second and third wife is a turkish confession to the world How Disho Noring polygamy is. The turks ought to derive from it the moral a a a what you do not wish to happen to a Princess ought Nob to happen to another the streets of streets Are for the most pare straight and run at right angles to one another. They Are not wide Many of them not admitting of the Sage of More than one Chariot at a time and probably these were not much used taking into account the Small extent of the City Only three quarters of Amile in length and half a mile in Width though the it deeply worn ruts in the stones would seem to Ludi Oate the contrary. The Roadway a composed of huge polygonal masses of lava from 9 to 18 inches in diameter and 9 inches in depth closely fitted together. Tie stones were worked in n wedge shape so that they spanned the Roadway like a vault each Stone resembling the Vous str of an Arch. All the streets have pavements for foot passengers even those where chariots could not pass consisting of Curbstone of lava with the pavement Cora posed of bits of Marble and atone set in Cement the whole rubbed Flat places where the Curbstone have broken away they have been clamped together with Iron.
