TOID BY AN OLD BACHELOR There is a little story, pleasantly told in [the pages of Once a Week, which we shall here present to our readers, connecting .he extracts we make by such remarks a: hall inake the tale intelligible. The good old bachelor, who recounts the history, had a young friend the son of the lady with whom, thirty years be fore, he had been in 1ovo. The young by ex- tremely epris of a Bliss Fanny Brown, the daughter of a city man, a great promoter of Limited Liability Companies. In the hope of inducing the old bachelor and his protege to take shares in the Steam Om- nibus Brown asked them to [dinner When they arrived his wife re- ived them with cold stateliness. Her dress was a magnificent triumph if cost over taste, and her manner tolc in a moment that she had never in tended us to be invited. Presently in ;ame and his daughter.

Sugar Coated Corn, and Pop Corn tlo dealer in Foreign Fruits, roposing for Fanny; aud a wise letter bey wrote, about the shortness of life ind the uncertainty of riches, and the usefulness of rank. Thay received from the father a polite but decided refusal. Well a few days after Harry get anoth er note, and having read it, thrust it in: the hand of his adviser. It ran thus Dear Harry Papa and mama hav consented to our marriage j come thi evening Ever yours, FANNY BROWN. Harry declared it was Fanny's writing "or the moment I almost thought it musi some wretched hoax. Harry did go! the Browns in trie evening; Mr and Mrs. Brown were very polite, though cold, ut the marriage was agreed to. I can safely affirm that I was never more [puzzled in my life than to discover the rea- n why the Browns had given their con- mt. I apologized to Brown for the irmth of my language; he was very po- lite but cold; so was Mrs Brown. Their tanner was just the same to Harry, anc iey evidently wished tis both at the bot- m of the sea. Harry, generous like mid have it that my conversation with rown, or perhaps a second reading of the tter, had touched their hearts but this olution was not satisfactory to me the day before the wedding to dine at Brown's with the lawyer. I am a trus tee and so forth in the matter, and I had to sign a mass of parchment, which took the lawyer a good.half hour to mumble the purport of which seem to be thatj everybody had as signed their property t, somebody else, and that somebody, I couldj not discover who, was regularly to pay the dividends half-yearly to nobody. I protesi I should had some doubts about puttin iy signature to such a confused heap o! had not Brown's lawyer, who hap ns to he my lawyer too, clearly explained [to me in five minutes at his, office rhich it afterwards took him half an houi mystify. Harry was to sleep at my cottage tha ight, and we left Brown's house togethe: '.o was in .excellent spirits, so was I too mt happiness at my time of life makes m1 iher sedate and meditative.

Mrs. Denby too, was brought.iip tothe attack, and ver; skillfully did she allude to the effect Fan- ny's youth and beauty would make in thi great world, and all the court and hono that would be paid her. One mornin Mrs. Brown discovered that I had writte: several letters to Fanny; these she co; cated, and carefully placed tinder the loc key in her own particular and desk. I felt indignant at this, but Hairy. to my great surprise, only laughed. 'The evening of that he continu Fanny was by herself in the back drawin. room, when her father suddenly enterei with a packet of letters in his hand, lie requested her to return to me ind also to write a note saying that ou: affair had come to an end.
