If I hear nothing from you, I shall infer that you assent to this arrangement. I shall have a car- riage in readiness under the old oak tree., at half-past eight o'clock.

Your devoted, CHARLES. said 'Squire Markham, laughing heartily, "that isivt bad es- pecially about humbugging me. Char- uuivmv crumpled up the letter and thrust it into her pocket.

Both parties were desirous of concealing their indentity At length, 'Squire Markham, consider- ing that after all, he could not marry the lady without her consent, and that the discovery must be made before the marriage, decided to reveal himself, and then urge his own suit as well as he might.

"Egad, the very idea I had said the 'Squire laughing; "but the fact is, we're both of us: most confoundedly sold, and the mischief of it is, I left a letter for Charles letting hitn know it, so undoubtedly ho will take the.oppor- during our absence, and plume himself, the rascal, on the way in which I was taken in." I confess that I left a note for Flor- Markham's "boy of all hack. It struck him at once that she was remarkably graceful, and really quite pretty. Thereupon he cultivated her 'acquaintance with increased assiduity, and after a while asked the fatal ques- tion. Florence answered in the affirmative nnd, instead of referring him dutifully to her mother, hinted (being a roman- tic young lady) how charming it would be to steal away to the next town and jget married without anybody being the I wiser. Charles Mnrkliam caught at this hint, which chimed with his own tempera- ment, and resolved to adopt it. In order that it might be carried out with perfect success, it was resolved to seem indifferent to each other, until tho day fixed, in order to ward off any sus- pecions which might be aroused. So well were all these arrangements carried out, that Mrs. Benson had not a j suspision of what was going on. Not so with 'Squire Markham. He (had obtained a- clue to the affair in some 1 manner, so that he had not only disco'v- ered the fact of the elopement, but even the very day on which it was to occur.

Still I owe him something for keeping it so secretly from me. It would be a joke if I were a little younger, to cut him out and j marry her in spite of him." i .is, iquire Markham, who was one of (those jovial widowers who takes life as Alld assortment of goods comes, mused more and more on this 'arkCt' R.

"Please said-he, holding out a missive, "here's a letther for Miss Benson, an' it's very particklur that no- body else shouldn't see it." The air of mystery conveyed in this characteristic address, aroused Mrs. Benson's curiosity, especially when she observed that it addressed to her daughter, and not to herself as she at first supposed. She returned to the parlor, not to read Harper's Magazine; that had lost its attractions. What in the world can it she thought, "that they should be so secret about it Can Florence be carrying i clandestine correspondence It be something that I to know." Stimulated by her feminine curiosity, Mrs. B. speedily concluded that she would bo false to the responsibilities of on a ma ence to the same will laugh at me puiport. what an How she embarrass- tery. a parent, if she did not unravel the mys- said she, "I will open it, and if it shouldn't be anything particu- lar, I can easily reseal it, and Florence will still be none the wiser." This she accordingly did. What was her astonishment when the plan of elope- ment was discovered to her. Here's pretty she ex- claimed, as soon as she could recover breath. "So Florence was going to run away get married to that Chas. Markham, without as much as hinting a word to me." She leaned her head upon her hand, and began to consider. She was natu- rally led to think of her marriage with the late Mr. Benson, and the happiness of her wedded life, and she could not help heaving a sigh at the recollection. Am I always to remain thus solita- she thought. "I've half a mind not to show this letter to Florence, but to run away with Charles to-morrow night on my own account. It's odd if I can't persuade him that the mother is as good as ,the and she I'll tell you said the 'Squire, after a moment's pause, "we can carry out our plans after all. Wo each came out with tho attention of getting married. Why not marry each other, and then you know, we can make them believe we had it in view all along, and only intended to frighten them." Mrs. Benson assented with a little urging, and in the course of an hour, the twain were made one. Tbeyimme-. diately turned, but found, as they had anticipated, that Florence and Charles, on discovering their departure.had them- selves stepped off in a different direc- tion with a similar intent. They made their appearance the next morning prepared to laugh heartily at tho frustrated plans of their learned with no little astonishment, that they had struck up a bargain for them- selves. 'Squire Markbam and his new wife had the address to convince them that it was all a premeditated plan, and to this day, theyoung pair are ignorant of the plot and counterplot which led THE ADVANTAGES OF LADIES' SOCI- is better for you to pass ah evening once or twice a, week in a lady's drawing room, even though tho conver- sation is rather slow, and you know the girls' songs all by heart, than in a club, tavern, or in the pit of a theatre. AH amusements of youths, to which women are. not admitted, rely on it, are deleto- rious in their nature. All men who- avoid female society have dull percep- tions, and are stupid, or have stupid and gross tastes, and revolt against what is pure. Your club swaggerers, who are sucking the butts of billiard cues all night, call female society Beauty has no charms for blind men music does not please a poor beast, whc- does not know one tune from another; and as a true epicure'is hardly ever tired of water anchovy and brown bread and butter, I protest I can sit all night talking to a well regulated, kindly wom- an, about her 'girl: coming out, or her hoy at Eton, and like the: evening's en- tertainment, One of the great benefits men can derive from women's society is, that he is bound to ba respectful to them.

Wo fight for our- selves, we-yawn for ourselves, we light' our pipes and say we won't go out, we prefer ourselves and our.ease; and the greatest good--that comes to a man from woman's society is, that he has to think of somebody besides himself, to whom he is bound to be constantly attentive and to this double union of holds. the two housc- n -this bank-breaking and de- faulting epoch, it is cheering to know, that no Wisconsin Bank has closed its doors against the demands of its note- holders.
