The family of V.)n Steenwrik, was a wraltny and honornble otie, far su perior to thnt of Vesale in birth nnd fortune; but the distinguinhed position tbe iatter had acquired for himself, entitled linm t« aspire to an alliance even more exulted.

Isabella's nature required jskili'ul drawing out and tender fostering. ! Vesale, unfortunately, mistook hertim ' idity for coldness, and resented it accordingly; this led to estrangement on her part, which he attributed to dislike, and jealous distrust at last took posess ion of his soul.

Look to yo<ir wife ami Don Alva de iSoli«, Hnd be not deceived by -appearance. They only want a fitting oppor-tunity to (dishonor jou. Even now he carries about him the glovei she dropped for him at mass." Vesale shut himself up to ponder orer the most eflfec^utl means of avenging himself. His resolution was soon taken. Havin«; established schools of anatomv at St. Liicar and Cordova, he obtained t4ie Emperor'i permission to viait them, quited Seville ostensibly for tb^t purpose but returning th>^ same night con* cesled himself in a tenement belonging to him at somo distance from his abode in Alcazar, which was devoted to the double purpose of a hiboratory and dis-•ecting toom. Ho had taken no person in his confi icnce; he was alone in his -own couustd. At d;irk on the foliowing evening he is-<ued forth' muíH d to the eyes in a wo (wtnN BSin.le nad li o l, and left a note at Ü-n A.'va'e hahitAtion, containing an embroidered glove of Isab«Wa''s and ihese words — "I hnve ob ained the frcy to Vesnl-'s laboratory during his ah!<cence.be at the gate Hn hour aiti-r midnight, and you will be almiited on pronóunciug the lame of Isabeíía." The astignation w«» promptly kept by Don Alva. Atan hour past midnight ; he I' ft his house HÍone^ but he never returned to it. Wiiiiber be had gone nene couM say; nor could any irace oí him ever be discovered. It was supposed he must have mis>ied his footing «nd fallen into the Q-md^tlquiver, n<!ar wliich his aboile was siinnted; and thai hisbjdy hvd been swept away by the wKves into the ocorn. Such an occurrence was calculated to produce a gre;it sensation in the place whrre it happened; and" Vesale, recalled three weeks after by the illness of his wile found tli« disappearance ol Don Alva the theme of every tongue. The altered appearance of Lsabclla was attributed by Vesale to grief for tbe mys-leriuius abaence of Don Alva, and that conviction took from him all pity for her sufferings. It chanced to be the festival of Santa Iitabeila, and to do honor to the pAtron saint, as well as to celebrate the return of her hu>bAnd, Isabella put on her wedding dress, and seating herself by sn open ca^ement that overlooked the Alva gardens, she watched for his cem ing. But whilst her eyes w«re vainly fix» d upon the p »th by which she ex pt cted him to appear, a hand was'®laid on her slioulder, and turning around she beheld Vtsnle standiug beside her. •1 have orderod the supper to be laid in my study.' said he, and taking her hand he led her away to the room in question, dismiscied the attendant and closed the door. Everything wore a festive air; yet the past was cheerless. Perceiving titat she had tasted nothing, Vesale poured a few drops of elixir in a cup of ^alaga wine, aad presented it to her: •Drink this,' he said, 'it is sovereign cure for the disease you are suffering from.' •Pledge me the drau^'ht, she replied fill'ng up a iri'blet from the same fl-isk, an I h in ling it to him. 'and i will brin;; ;i qiiicker he tliag to me. Let us drink to our »bstni. friend, .^ndre.' V^sHie accrpted .he offering, and they emp'ied their goblet<* together. •Tnlking of absent friends.' said he. and suddenly fixing his eyea upon her. •you have not spoken to me of Don A I* vade Solis. Are all hopes of hearing from bin relinqtti>hed ? He was n braggart and ft libertine, and boa^ted that no woman ever resisted his seductions. that no hui-band fver auapected the iijury he was preparing for him ' Then gra>ping his wife by the bftftd. he led her up to lb« d«K}r ftt tbe fftrther en i of the. room and throwing tbe door wide open, revealed to her view a skeleton suspended within, holding in one of iiif bony hands one of her embroidered there in strangling murmurs, and sinking back, ihe fell as if oae dead, upon the arms of Vesale. She was not dead, however, he had not poisoned her; that crime he had hesitated to commit; yet he was none the less her muiderer. Convulsion followed convuUion, and in that supreme mo m^nt, the hour that preceded death, her husband who never quitted her, beheld one of thos'' phenomena which »ome-time« attend the dying.

I feared and iionored you as much as I lov«!<l, but 1 dare not tell you of his pursuit. Oh. Andre, believe my words, liie d^ ing deal ■ot in falsehoods. Should I be thus calm were I guilty.' Vesale sinking upon his knees, solemnly protested his faith in the innocence of his wife, and with choking sobs, tbjured her to believe he only faigned to give her poison; that he could not nerve his hand to^take her life; but the lorror of death, not d.-ath iiselt was upon her. And white yet he spoke, Isabella murmured— "Tbanki be to heaven for this," and Irawing his hand to-warks her, laid it upon her heart and as she did, it ceased to beat. jar At a late public meeting, the fol lowing 'dry' toasi was given.

The ceremony, however, took place, and ft wedding banquet followed, the whole being terminated by ft splendid ball. The festivities were drawing to a close, when a servant informed the bridegroom that a gentlemftn desired to •'pewk wiih him on a very urgent affair. The bridegroom went out, but did not return for the rest of the evening. The guests, one by one, retired, but the husband still remained absent, and at last, long after midniiiht, the bride withdrew to her chamber. There she ftt once discovered the cause of her husband's absence, for, on the table, by the bedside, she found a small note from her husband— "Madame : If ^ had no right in mar-rying you to expect a sincere affection, n'nce we were but little aoquainted with each other, I, however, looked for ft heart which had n^ver throbbed for another, and which I might by ftssiduitr and tenderness eventually make my own. But a long series of letters from you lo another man, have just been pui in my hand—letters which prove, that if you gave me your hand your affection had been given to another. I cannot, Madame, accept such an arrangement, and as I am unable to rend asunder the bonds which have joined us ft few hours since, I am determined to protest, ftk least bj my absence, against the union which I have contracled ; and the first day of your marriage shall be the first also of a widowhood which shftll only terminate by the death of one of us.
