Four weeks since Lela arrived at the farm-house, and she still lingered, though she received letters almost every day from Mrs. Malcolm, urging her to join her many friends at the seaside. “I wonder*why I like to remain here,” she said to herself, glancing over one of these epistles at the table, where the family were assembled to breakfast. “Well, Mrs. Parker, I must leave you on Monday.” Frank Studley was the speaker. A pang shot through Lela’s heart; the words seemed an answer to her unspoken question. “Yes—dear me, how the time llies^—yes, I suppose you must. Well, this is your last examination, isn’t it?” “Yes. When you see me again I shall be a full-blown M. I).,” he returned, laughingly. The next day was Sunday, and Lela attended church.

My lover was madl His great, dark eyes, searching mine eagerly, were a madman’s eyes; his hot breath upon my cheek was the panting breath of a maniac. 1 was no heroine, and my presence of mind deserted me. A chill like death seized every limb, and but for the strong clasp of his arms around me, 1 should have fallen. “ ‘Little one,’ Charles said, —his tohe was never more tender—‘you do not fear mel So, love, lie upon my heart, and I will send you on your journey. See!’ “And then before my eyes, fast growing dim in fear, he held a surgeon’s long knife, one I knew belonged in my lather’s case of instruments. “ ‘You shall not suffer,’ he continued, and his voice now sounded far away, as a numb terror locked my senses. ‘I will driv...

OUR OWN OLIO. Singing for the South. For a copy of “The Home Journal,” New York, dated the 11th, we are indebted to Gen. Lilley, and in it, under the above caption, is the following: The operatic entertainment given last week by Colonel Mapleson, at the Academy of Music, for the benefit of the Washington and Lee University, was as successful financially as it was brilliant from an artistic and social point of view, General Lilley, as the agent of the University, having had the gratification of receiving from the operatic manager a check for forty-five hundred dollars as the proceeds of the evening. The occasion was notable for the simultaneous appearance of the three great prime donne, Albani, Scalchi and Patti; for the first appearance of Albani as Norma , and lor the first appearance of the two • other singers named in a scene from “Dinorah.” The writer has heard all the great Normas at the Academy, from Anna de La Grange down to the present time.

Slander. This is a two-fold crime. Ist.—lt is a breach of natural law, and of the implied law of society, in regard to the party spoken of. 2d.— It is a breach of the same law, in relation to the party speaking. It has been commonly treated of in the first relation. It is now to be noticed in the second; and if it be shown why it is a breach in this, the other will take care of itself. We beg leave to ask a slanderer a few questions: Do you desire to be esteemed in society for your intelligence, your sense- of justice, your knowledge of the decencies of life, and tor the observance of them? If you happen to be ill-tempered, petulent and disagreeable to your family connections and associates; if you make hasty and troublesome judgments, which you have to rescind or reform; if you happen to be ridiculous in your deportment, and remarkable for silly vanities, are you willing to have these things set forth in any way, and every company, by any one who knows of them?
