read too well what his fears were.
Words could not describe indeed
it I p lnful for me even now to
recall the dreary wretchedness of
that fatal mouth, during which no
tidings came of the devoted army.
Evening after evening saw the roads
crowded by anxious women, sitting
thpiH for hours, that llicv rnio-M hnnr
J I the fir.st news of thoe who were
dear to them, and evening after
evening saw them reltirn In despair.
And when, at last, the news came
that the .ole survivor had daggered,
half alive, back to his countrymen
with the tidings of the great disaster,
the wail which ascended from those
heart-broken creatures 1. shall never,
while I live, forget.
There had been u Captain iu one
ot the native regiments, an old ac
quaintance of mine, of the name of
Donnelly Jerry Donnelly, as he
was called by every one. He was
care I ul to explain to all his friends
that his name was Jerome, and not
Jeremiah, although why he so un
duly preferred the saint to the
prophet I never understood. Jerry
Donnelly, however he was, and
as si range and eccentric a creature
as ever breathed.
He was a very good-looking fe1
low. and a first-rate officer, but a
careless, rollicking, lialf-insano mad
cap of a man, with an amusing flow
of spiiits, little education or culture,
a great almost miraculous talent
for languages, with a sott heart and
an easy temper. It was impossible
to make him angry ; and in all cir
cumstances, however unpleasant, be
maintained a placid serenity, which
seemed to imply that he was on in
timate terms with fortune, and knew
the very worst she could do.
Among the other tricks which the
fickle ffoddess had plaxed him was
that she hud married him. Why he
ever married as he did no one could
imagine. The lady was neither
handsome, clever, uor rich. She was
simply passable as to looks, with the
' liveliness of good health and youth
J a quality not inapt to develop
J itself in vivacity of temper when
, those other attributes disappear.
I But, ou i-ome impulse, Jerry Don-
uelly had asked her l he momentous
question, aud had been favorably
A most uncomfortable couple they
were. Jerry, from the very first,
ueglected her not intentionally, I
believe, but simply because for the
moment he forgot her existence. It
never seemed to him necessary to
alter his former bachelor round in
any respeqt ; and, as the lady had
uo notion of being neglected, she
ret-enteu ins muiuorence, anu cnaiK-
ed out a line for herself. It may be
easily supposed that Ihe one was not j
averse to brandy and water, or the
' other to gossip and flirtation. They
, never quarrelled outwardly, but
were narmy-ever logemer. .
So stood the. domestic eircle, if
such it eould be called, of Captain
Donnelly, when he was ordered on
Gen. Klphinstone's expedition. His
wife would fain have remained at
Calcutta, but, as all the wives were
going to Agra, she for very shame
was obliged to go there also. On
the first rumors of disaster she was j
very indifferent said she was sure
Jetry would turn up at the most in
convenient time, and that if he was
J happy she was. When, however,
the tidings 'were confirmed, and it i
was certain that Jerry Jiad perished
with his comrades, a great change
came over her. She shut herself up
for months, saw no one and went
nowhere. And when at the end of
nearly a year she began once more
to look at the world, she was a
grave, thoughtful, softened woman.
She went up to Calcutta alter that,
and I never saw her again until I
came home on furlough in 1847.
She was then living in a pretty place
in Somersetshire, and was known as
Mrs. Courtnay, of Branley Hall.
I met her accidentally, but she w&tA
very glad to 6ee me, and explained
to me what I had uot beard, that
when .he arrived at Calcutta she
found that poor Jerry bad, four
months before he left Agra, succeed
ed to this plaee of Branley Hdll by
the death of a distant relation. Ho
had previously made & will leaving
her all hii worldly goods, then slen

I thought the woman's head must
have been affected by her troubles,
j ami said nothing.
'1 see you think me deranged, but
I kuew he wan alive all the time
'Why, what could have led you to
I saw him. Col. Hastings. It was
in your old bungalow at'Calcutta,
about two years after I had gone
back. Late in the evening I heard
a footstep outside which strangely
affected me. 1 was lying half asleep
and, starting up in a drowsy state, I
heatdavoice at the veranda, and,
as I thought, inquiring of my stupid
old native whether I lived there.
The steps then turned away. I
darted to the casement, and, altho'
the figure was clad in the most ex
extraordinary compound of Euro
pean aud Asiatic garments, I am
sure it was Jerry. I darted down
stairs and rushed out, but the man
had disappeared. Tho servant said
he was a had fakir and wished to
get in the bungalow, but could or
would tell me nothing of what he
had said. But I am quite sure it wag
Jerry. So I am certain he will come
back but you remember he never
was punctual she added, with a
I did not say to her that if Jerry
was alive she must have heard of him
in Home other way ; but I took leave
of her, and, shortly afterward, re
turned to India.
In 1853, I was appointed to fn
embassy to Ncpaul, a very striking
country, governed by a powerful J
warlike race. The first Minister or
J Vizier of the-country met us, as is
J the Nepauleso fashion, outside the
capital, and we had a very courteous
aud gratifying reception. He was a
tail, handsome man, with a flowing
black beard, and conversed with me
j in Persian, which I spoke fluently.
After our interview, one of the at
tendants informed me that the Viz
ier wished to see me alone, and he
accordingly conducted me to an
J inner apartment. He oidered the
attendants to withdraw, aud then, iu
tones only too familiar, exclaimed:
'Well, Haatingvmyboy, how 'go
on the Plungers'?' ' ''
It was Jerry Donnelly, by all that
was miraculous. I had observed1
him staring earnestly at me during
the interview, and something in his
gestures seemed not unfamiliar to
me, but his flowing beard, solemn
air, and Oriental dress, so much
disguised him, that even when I
heard the well-remembered voice I
could scarcely realize his identity.
'But what on earth are you doing

I assure you, you are entirely
mistaken. Mre. Donnelly has not
'Hasn't she, though?' said he.
'Don't I know better? Didn't I no
to my own bungalow aud find out
she had married that starched tool
Courtnay, when she knew I nevor
could endure him?'
To his intense astonishment, I told
him how the truth was, aud, in re
turn, lie related to me his own ad
ventures. He had been carried into
Tartary, and there detained for three
years, when he was. allowed to
accompany a caravan or body of
pilgrims to Nepaul. Being by that
time a proficient In the language, be
wag taken notice of at court, but
very strictly watched. He effected
his escape, however, disguised as a
fakir, and made bis way to Calcutta,
but finding, as he thought, his wife
married again to a man in his old
regiment, he returned, 'was taken
into favor, and had risen to his pres
'Well, I always was a blundering
fool, but I went home with a heart
so soft to Sophy, and vowing1 that I
never would vex herauy more with
my vagaries that, when I heard her
called Mrs. Courtnay, 1 was turned
to stone, and did uot care a rspwhat
became of roe, even to :bemade:a
Vizier, which, I assure you, Charlie,
is no joke in Its way.'
'Well, at all event?, you must eerae

'I am not sure, about that,' said he.
'Recollect, she has grown accustom
ed to be mistress I have grown
accustomed to be Ylzler. She won't
like to he contradicted, aud it's a
thing I never could bear, aod what
I never allow on any account. Now,
if I went home, she would not be
mistrehs, and, as sure as fate, she
would contradict me. Maybe' It h
better as it is.'
Next moruiugheseut forme again.
'I have been thinking,' he said, 'ot
all that strange story you told me.
I am all changed since we parted. I
hardly know myself to be the same
mau I used to be, and am not sure it
I should treat Sophy well. But ask
her to come out here, and then she
can try. If she likes me in thU out
landish place, I will go home, with
her; If we quarrel here, uo one will
be a bit wiser, and I can continue to
'But,' said I, 'have you no encum
brances? Perhaps she might object
to the details of vour establishment
'Not a bit,' said Jerry ; 'I have
none .of your Kastern prejudices;
let her come, and she will find
nobody to disturb her
So she did come; aud, after living
in Nepaul for two years, brought
Jerry back in triumph to Brauley
Hall ; and such is the true version ot
a tale which made some noise in the
newspapen a few years ago.
A leddlfMoiHe aiarf.
For the credit of human nature, it
is to be hoped that the men who
descend from their proper sphere to
meddle with the domestic duties of
the household are few and far be
tween. The male housekeeper car
ries the common purse, which he
holds with an iron grip, pinching
every quarter that he grudgingly
doles out for family necessaries' till
the very eagle on It eqneals, and his
wife feelH her degradation to the
depths of her soul. Such a man'
'better half" is an, titter nonentity,
with far less iudependence of soul
aud body than the untutored servant
in the kitchen, whose wages supply
her humblo needs, and who, if she h
uot satisfied, can at any time chaagc
her condition. How many wives of
male housekeepers have even one
dollar & week to spend exactly as
they choose "and no questions ask
ed," and who does not know that
more genuine satisfaction can bo
gotten out of ten cents absolutely
wasted than from ten dollars used
for mere necessaries? The male
housekeeper always deals with the
butcher and grocer by the week or
fortuight, to save trouble, and so
always carries that curie to economy
a grocery book. Thu the wife is
forced to trade at one or two partic
ular stores, and if they have not the
articles required, "he must do with
out them. How infinitely better to
set aside a eertain amount, be it ever
so small, according to the salary of
the head of the family, for household
expenses, and let the wife manage it
her own way. Ninety-niue times
out of a hundred she will make it
go farther than a man can. Then no
more pinching, contriving and cajo
ling; no more "books" at butchers
and grocers, where one is continu

A woman's glove is to her what &
vest pocket is to a man. But it is
more eapaeious, aud in uiue cases
out of teu it is much better regulat

change, four mateh.es, half a dozen
toothpicks, a short pencil, and other
thing8,.and yet not be able to find a
nickel, or a match, or a toothpick,
or a pencil, era card when he wants
It. Not so with a woman. She ban
the least bit of a glove, and in that
she carries the tiniest band, aud a
wad of bills, and the tuemorndum
for her intended purchase pf dry
goods, and ear tickets, and matinee
checks, and may-be a diminutive
powder-bag. We have no idea how
she does it how she manages to
squeeze those thousand and one
things into that wee spaee. But she
does it every time, aud the glove
uever looks the least distended or 1
ruffled. And when a woman wants
any artiele" concealed about that

when we wake do wh shrink from
the dull routine of sordid experience
that is before uh, and wish ourselves
