The Baron Von der Wart^jacepaedj thoiigb it is believed unjustly, as ani.ftccoiiip|ic4ui the as- »qs|iinatioja o f the Eniperoi‘Mber|', was bound aliye on t^e. wheel, and attended hy his wife ^Gertrude^’tJiroughqut hi« last, agonizing rao- ments, with the m o s t; heroic fidelity. Her own sufferings, and those of fier unfortunate husband, are most affectihgly described in\a letter addressed to a female frien^ and which was published some years ago at Haarlem, in a book entitled “ Gertrude Von der Wart, or Fidelity unto death.” H er hands were clasp’d, her dark eyes rajsedl The breeze blew back her hair; Up to the fearful wheel she gazed, All that she loved was there. The night was round her clear and cold, The holy heaven above ^ Its pale stars watching to beliold, The night o f earthly love. “ And hid me not depart,” she cried, “ My Rudolph ! say not so ! ■ This is ho time to quit thy side. Peace, peace' I cannot go. Hath the world aught for mu to fear When death is on thy brow ? The world!—.what means it ?— mine is heee — I will not leave thee now J “ I have been with thee in thine hour Of glory and of bliss. Doubt not its memory’s living power, To strengthen me through this * And thon, mine honour’d love and true, Bear on, bear nobly on J We have the blessed Heaven in view, Whose rest shall soon be won.” And were not these high words to flow Prom Woman’s breaking heart > —Through all that night o f bitterest woe She bore her lofty part: But oh ! with such a freezing e y e ; With such a curdling cheek— Love, love I o f mortal agony, Thou, only thou , shouldst speak J The winds rose high—^but with them rose Her voice, that he might h ear; Perchance, that durk hour brought reposd To happy bosoms near; ' \While she sat striving with despair Beside his tortured form. And pouring her deep soul in prayer Forth on the rushing storm. She vriped the death damps from his brow, \With her pale hands and soft, Whose touch upon the lute chords low, Had stilled his heart so oft. She spread her mantle o’er his breast, She bathed his lips with dew. And on his cheek such kisses press’d^ As joy and hope ne’er knew. Oh J lovely are y e, Love and Faith,- Enduring to the la s t ! She had her meed—one smile in death— Apd his worn spirit passed! Wliile even as o’er a martyr’s grave, She knelt on that sad spot; And, weeping,hless’d the God who gave Strength to forsake it n o t ! S m iE O T E D m X B C E E L JLETt. MY GRANDFATHER’S LEGACY.—No. I. “ I could have wished a better,” said I, as I turned a rusty key in the lock of an old w’orm-eaten chest, that stood in the apartment, and which j was told was ” My Grandfather’s Legacy,” and drew from it a large bundle o f paper, written all over in distinct, though quaint, characters.— ” I could have wished a better, but n'im- pofte.\ As I spoke, I unrolled the packet, which contained some score of manu­ script talps, carelessly written, and seve­ ral of them incoherent enough withal;— but as my aunt Winifred has a pleasant voice, and a good idea of emphasis and punctuation, I deputed her to peruse' them; and after snuffing the candles, as­ sembling the family, and adjusting her chair stlon Us regies, she accordingly com­ menced with a wild fragment, entitled, A \ so l d ie r ’ s f a i t h . Never shall I forget their bridal—earth scarce contained aught more lovely than Maria as she passed the porta! o f the vil­ lage church, and hastened tO'escape the admiring gaze of the rustic crowd. Ma­ ria was barely eighteen, the light of beau­ ty danced, in her deep blue eye ; but on this, her bridal morn, its long silken lash hid more than half its brightness, and the snowy Veil which fell over anbnrn tresses was not paler than her theek. I had loyed her ere I left my father’s roof, but I bad no patrimony except a proud name and a soldier’s fortunes; and |laria was a prize too great for one so porlioncd. I looked upon hcrbridegr^m—^very fea** ture was replete with manly..beauty, and, each well knit limb migl)t form a study for the fastidious statuary: and y e t i | ^ e d upon hkn till my heart s w ^ d almoift to bursting, and I turned once wor® to look upon Maria, and J I'fisMdyttiat ikcy,iiad bbdsen her siflotKer lbi€^ Never ihall | forget that durk,4eep^'^^th-tufned eye! «r the haughty lip iM inumpbant and iearful smile ! 1 loft: iny. native v i f f a ^ t sighed not one fafewell to M a r ia.A fter her mgrriage we feared to m e e t s h e fell that I loved her, and her own heart; more stubborn than her nature, resisted even yet the harsh mandate, o f an unyielding parent: she knew it, apdshe shrank not from her duty. Agm® I l®ft JUJ home, and the son of ^pain darkened iny brow, au(| her wars nerved my. spirit to. greater daring ; but I . retired from her baughly daughters with a sickening-souT> for I thought of Maria and of her fatal destiny, and 1 clung to her remembrance as if my hopeless truth could now in aught avail her. Years sped on, and my heart yearn­ ed to revisit the home of my idiildhood—^ the birth-place o f my first hopes; Itrpd its path with a firm step, but the sun-ray which glahced on me in the' home of my fathers, rested on the scarred features of a war-scathed soldier; f shrank from th; reflection—“ should Maria now look o' tn^, hoW would she deom me changed 1” It was a foolish thought^'and in the next moment I blushed for its conception. My stay Was brief, yet, ere I a^ain became a wanderer, I once more beheld Maria ; she had been the mother of two blooming boys, but they had withered, like roses devoured hy the foul wolrm Which feasts on beauty. I saw her lord top; the voice of murmur was on his tongue, and his eye scowled reproachfully a| he threw it on his young bride—the pale Cheek grew yet paler beneath the'glance—the soft blue eye swelled with, the drop o f silent stiffer- ing—the heaving bosom struggled to re­ press the sigh which threatened to escap e it—and I fled ere my tongue gave utter­ ance to the curse my heart engendered,— I became loudest in the revel, but I could not drown the memory of that low stifled sigh I mingled in the train o f beauty, but the deep eye with Jts large tear was ever in the throng, and every pale cheek on which I gazed in my wanderings recalled the memory o f Maria! Again the tented field was my abode, the green sward my resting place; again my night-slnmberwas amidst the brave, and my day-dream o f conquest and o f glory ,* many a bold and buoyant heart slept in death ere the field was foagbt—tnany an ardent spirit bounded no more to the battle; but the bullet passed me by, and the wound closed,, and the scar healed, when a weapon blade struck me in its descent— and I lived on.- My brother soldiers dashed the red stream, from the gleaming steel, and shouted vic­ tory ! till the very skies seemed to echo back the pealing of their voices, and I stood by in silence, and only asked toperisb. We left the fair land o f fame and con- -quest, and I bade adieu to my fellow-sol­ diers for e v e r : they pressed around me with generous w^armth, and’besought my stay; but I was a ilioody and a wretchei^ man, and their words were those of < tesy and compassion I There is asp the though! of bornet “ I will d home and die,” 1 murmured: it#as a Iwpup, idea, for my father was in his-grave, my sister wedded in a foreign land—I was - alone; but Maria dwelt near the spot where T had been once happy, and her proximity was a resting place for the Wounded spirit. But even that link in the cankered chain of existence was im* ri vetted; Maria had dropped beneath the withering breath of unkindness; she slept in the cold ground. I hurried to the church-yard; two marble tombs gleamed' pale in the moon-light—^they shrouded the ashes o f her lovely b ib e s ; but ber Own grave was obscUre and tmletterf d, and the rank grass which covered it waved darkly to the night-hfeeze, like hearse plumes. She had willed a lowly, but not at forgotten, resting place; and I ca^ my­ self on the neglected grave, nndt pluck-^ ed from it every bitter weed, anjd trimmed the long dark ^ a s s : and lushed no tear as’ I performed the mournful duty ria was at peace, she slept with her child­ ren. Ere I left the spot, my eye fett on the ~ medal which hung at my breast; t i e moon­ beams glanced brightly on it as ifin mock­ ery; it was all that now linked me to my reflow-men; all tbat I yet cherished oh earth. I scooped u narrow bole la the- green turf on her breast and there Ide^ posited my treasure. It is the only offer­ ing of my ill-fated love; it will be my wi|» ness with Maria in brighter morid that I , didtny duty to my cQodtty. I slowly left the grave-yard, and dteW. near to take li l^st loojt at the habitation which war once Maria’si j^altinjt and revelry rmfftmdcd through the v a ^ apart­ ments turd had takma another hridel Ipaused'fbr a momem t© took o» her fuU hlack epb a n d ^ p ly tinted c h ^ ; —from that kourliffi has been.a hfciftt, and I have moved amil world’a acmifa- ^ as passionlem as a bteathing tome I
