THE COQUETTE. BY JAMES SHEHIDAN'KNOWLES. "I will not marry was her re- face half averted from the kneeling figure beside her, whom still she suffered to retain her hand, whose arm still encircled her waist, unforbid- den. "I will not marry and love was in the tone of the very accents that withered the boon of love, or deferred the bestowal of it. lSt Aubyn was a young man of mloderate fortune; accomplished, unso- pljisticated, of quick sensibilities. A student, and fond of retirement, he had selected for his summer residence a small fishing hamlet, oh the romantic coast of Devonshire; where, between his books and the sea shore, along which he loved to ramble, his time passed anything but heavily. Were he had resided about a month, when the little community received an addi- tion, in a young lady and ,her mother, who joined it for the purpojse of a tem- porary residence; St Aubyn stepped back, in surpiise, when, isuing one morning from the cabin n which he lodged, he beheld two females, in the attire, and with the air of one leaning upon the arm of the other whence he had just emerged. He bowed, how- ever, and passed on. jHe had scarcely more than glanced at the strangers; but, transient as was his survey of them, he saw that one, of them was an younger, 'How touching is the language which indisposition. over ex- claimed St. Aubjfrj to himself. "Health would improve tihe loveliness of that face, but "he interest which now in- vests it would vanish. No he continued, "but late hours and crow- ded rooms have sent her 1 prophesy she comes to make some stay. Sidmouth would be change of scene, not change of He was right. St. Aubyn returned from his ramble earlier than was his custom. His thoughts, that day, were in th6 hamlet, and upon the shore. He approached his lodging with something like the emotions of expectation and suspense. He looked at hu landlady, on entering as if he expected her to communicate something; ana was dis- appointed when she merely returned the ordinary response to his salutation. He entered his apartment dispirited, and threw himself in a chair near the window, the sash of which as if he wanted air. For the first time he felt the oppression of ''They have not come to said he to himself, and absolutely with a sigh no wonder! In an assembly, a lovely graceful, and delicate woman be- held for the first time, would ex- acted from him only the ordinary trib- ute which beauty shares with beauty; but, in a remote little fishing hamlet, inhabited by beings as rude as their neighbors, the sea and the rocks, such a vision could hardly come and vanish, without leaving a strong impression 'upon the beholder. St. Aubyn sat ab- stracted, The opening of a window, in a cab- in opposite, roused him. The sash was thrown up by a white arm shining thro' a sleeve of muslin, thin as gauze. Pres- ently a dimpled elbow reposed upon the sill; and a cheek of pensive sweet- ness sank upon a hand, so smallj ?o white, that it seemed to have i beeni. modelled for no other office than to pillow such a burden. A thrill ran through St. Aubyn, quickening him in- to wakeful life. How the hand talks! What passion thoughjt, apd sentiment are in Whatwngues are the fingers! Oh! the things that the hand which St. Aqibyn sat watching, discoursed to him, as it changed its wit i the palm now with the hack, kissing its owner's extending one finger upon' the marbly, ample en- wreathing itself with one jetty curl and passed over the arched bright lowered, and? lan- guidly droopingfrom the window frame upon which the arm to which it be- longed lay motionless; then raised again with slow and waving motion, iill it closed with the cheek that half met it gradually crossed over the bo- som that seemed to heave with a sigh as 't passed and pressed to the then clasped with its beauteous fellow, and carried to the back of the bead, the full elastic arms swelling and whiten- ing, as they contracted. St. Aubyn gazed on Hitherto the cheek alone of the fair in- valid had been presented to him, but now her head turned; her eyes met his and rose and with- diew. Only glimpses of her did St. Aubyn catch again, that they were 'requent. A aand, an elbow, thetpoint of her shoulder, once or twice her finger, flitting backwards and for- warls, as she. passed up and down the apartment. Dusk fell; still she remain- ed at her post. Was it a guitar that he heard? It was but awakened as the first tones of an1 Eolian harp, which you hold your oreath to hear, j Her hand was on the strings; one chord at length she struck full; another succeed- another. Then all silence, for a time. St. Aubyn s ill remainined at the in vain. The music awoke again, as fajiry soft as before; and a voice, soft as the music, but oh! far sweeter, awoke! along with it. She was singing, but! he could hear nothing but the strain, anp. yet he heard enough to tell him that a theme of ten- derness though sung by rath-; er seemed to help tha n mar the pas- sionate mood.1 The stars shone out; the moon in fyer first quarter half com- pleted, showed her bright crescent clear through setting; the folds of a white drapery shone dimly through the sti I open casement. Did the wearer ap- proach, to look'out and gaze upon the fair niftjt? No. The sash was pulled down; tHe string and the voice were hushed; the interesting minstrel had retired. St Aubyn retired too; but though his head was upon the pillow, not a moment of that night were his vi- sion and his ear withdrawn froni the open window. It was broad day before forgetful- nesss cc.st her spell over the excited spirits of St Aubyn, nor was it Woken till high noon. He arose, j emerged from his chamber, anc took ah anxious survey of the habitation opposite. The room appeared! empty. He par took of a slight repast; apd sal ying out, made his way to the phore. He had not pro- ceeded fair, when, turning a point he beheld he elder female, about a hundred yards'iu advance of him, Standing still and loo cing anxiously upwards towards the cliff. He followed what appeared to be the direction oJ her eyes, and saw the younger, half way up, recli- ning on her side! Something appear- ed to be amiss. He quickened his pace, and joinirg the former, learned from her, that her daughter attempting to reach the top of the cliff, had inriau- tiously turned, and unaccustomed to' look from a height, was prevented, by terror from proceeding or descending; that froim the same cause, she had peddown several feet; and that self, durst not attempt to go to her as- sistance. St. Aubyn }ad heard enodgh he bounded up the steep. As he ap- proached the fair one, modesty half overcame she made a plight effort to repair if je disorder into which her dress had tyeen thrown by the ac- cident. Aubyn assisted to com- plete what she had but impeV- fectly; he encburaged her, raised hdr, and propping her fair form with his owp, led her, step by step, down to the beach again. Nor, wifen she was in perfect safety, did he withdraw his as- did she decline it; though subsided, confusion rosS, coloring her pale cheek to crim- son'i, at the recollection of the light in which he had been found. Her ad- cle was slightly sprained, she saic., having turned under her, when she slipr ped. What was this, if not a warrant for the proferi of an arm? At Jal( events, St Aubyn construed it as feikcth and escorted the fair stranger, leaning upon him back Fromi that moment, a close intimacyicom- menced, They iwere constantly to- accompanied by the frequently, and, last, wholly alone. Communing in solitude between the sexes- and in the midst of romantic scenery, where there is no impediment, no distate on either side, is almost sure to awaken and to foster love. St. Aubyn loved. The looks, the actions, all but the tongue of Ame- lia assured him that his passion was re- turned. Her health had improved rap- idly; the autumn was far advanced, and the evenings and nights were growing chill. The mother and daughter talk- ed of returning to towj; a day was fix- ed for their departure; and on the eve of that day St Aubyn threw himself at the feet of the lovely girl, and implor- ed her to bless him with her Yet, though she did not deny that he had interested her eyes and cheek attested though tjef hanc which was locked in locked .pis as well; though, she suffered him to'idraw icr towards him, by 'He tenure ot her graceful waist, still washer will not marry yet." St Aubyn did not require to ask if his visits would be permitted in ie was invited to renew, them An excursion to Paris, however, on a matter of pressing necessity, inspecting affairs of a friend, prevented his re- ,urn for a month. At the expiratibnof hat time, he found himself in London and with a throbbing heart, repairec to -he habitation of his mistress, on the very evening of his arrival. The louse was lighfed up; there was a ball; yet he, could not overcome his imjpa- -ience to belold again the heroineofthe >ittl6 fishing hamlet. He rang, at -.he same mo melt When a knot of otier visiters came to the door, and entering along with them, was ushered into a ball-room, -he footman hurriedly an- nouncing the Barnes of the several par- ties.

St. Au- jyn scarcely knowing what he did, af- -er sitting abstracted .for a few min- utes, rose, and out of the room. He descended the staircase, wit i the intention pf quitting the house; but the supper room-had been just thrown open and the press carried him in.

His eyes explored the table in quest of the most delicafe of the viands, which, one after another, he recommended to her until she made a selection. He filled a wine glass sparkling cy andfpresented it to her; -hen crowded a goblet, till the liquor almost overhung the brim, breathed her name over it, in a sigh; and quaffed it off to the bottom, at a draught. He leaned his cheek to her's till the neighbors al- most touched. He whispered her and, she replied in whispers. He passed his arm over the back of her chair, part- ly supplanting it in the office of sup- Girting her shoulders. He pressed so .'iclose to her that it would have been he same 'had both been sitting in one seat. She was either unconcious of thefamil- hr vicinity, or she permitted it. The whispering continued: the word "mar- riage" was uttered; repeated; repeated 'again.
