Immediately after her uiarringe Colonel Woivercon sailed in a steamer bound for Jamaien. Ill-fated steamer! Though immy prayers lowed her over the treacherous billuws, yet she went down in the nnfatlionwble1 deep; and to the anxious hearts looked long for the coming of their loved ones, that heart breaking message came, A11 on board perished." Even those hope destroying words could add nothing to Miss Lenworth's jrrief when she learned what a miserable mess of pottage her revenge had proved. DENIMS, CASSIMEHES, Together with alJ Laiigfilng Children. Give me the boy or girl who smiles as soon as the first rays of the morning sun glance in through the gay, happy, and kind. Such a boy will be fit to make up into a least when contrasted with a sullen. morose crabbed" fellow, who snaps nd snarls like a surly cur, or growls- iul grunts like :in untamable liyena, fiom the moment he opens his red and anpry eyes till he is comforted by liis break last. Such a girl, other things being favorable, will be good material to aid in gladdening some comfortable home, or to refine, civilize, tame, ind humanize a rude brother, making more gentle, affectionate, and lovable. It" is a feast to even look at such a girl, such a woman bud. and sec the smiles flowing, so to speak, from her parted lips, displaying a set of clean, well-brushed teeth, looking al- most the personiScation of beauty and roodness, singing, and as merry as the birds, the wide-awake birds, that com- menced their morning concert loug be- fore the lazy boys dreamed that the glo- rious sun was approaching and about to pour a whole flood of joy-inspiring light and warmth upon the earth. Such a girl is like a gentle shower to the parched earth, bestowing kind words, Finiles, and acts of mercy to all around joy aud light of the household. It has been well ?aid tliat there are two muscles to raise the upper lip. as in and only one to draw it down: therefore we should laugh twice to crj ing once." There may be a time for weeping, and even for mourning and melancholy; yet cheerfulness, goi-d nature, and joy are far more favoiablo to the health of the body and minvi. Excessive grief often arrests the action of the stomach, and produce? disease. The cheerful and hopeful arc far more healthy than the morose, the sour, the fretful, and the scolding mortal, who never pees the sunlight of cheerfulness or sociability, but who scowl a ad frown. look and feel two-edged swords towards all who daje to come reach of them. LATEST STYLES to you. And the gay girl danced off without waiting to note the effect of her woids. Miss went .slowly up to her room but although it was within an hour of dinner-time, she did not com- mence dreeing Sitting by her win- dow, her eyes, glowing mjw with a fire that tuld of the passionate soul within, again wandered while the flush on her cheek, that something in Ethel's words up, grew brighter and brighter. Memory wandered back to the time when she first met this man, the mention of whose affected her so visibly. Six years previously she had met him at a little country town, which' was then her home, aud whither he had come with a college friend to spend the summer. Young, and igno- rant of the ways of the world, this handsirne. refined gentleman, with his stories of London the wondrous occurrences in what was. to her. a for eigu not only captivated her fancy, but won her love She was sitting, one day, on the bank of the river, under a shadowy elm, drooping branches conc-caled her fiom view, when Edward Wolverton and his friend passed by, bent on a shooting expedition. She heard her name mentioned jestingly by his friend; and with a careless laugh. Edward Wol- yerton replied, "In love with that awk- ward, ignorant country girl What an opinion yon must have of my taste fellow amuse himself a little without being accused of serious inten- tions Stung to the heart, she staggared rather than walked homeward; and once safe in her own room, she sat down to think of the few weeks that had passed like a happy blissful dream, and this rude awakening. Even in Srst moments of her bitter grief, the pride of her nature rose paramount, and she determined to be revenged. It was no very terrible revenge that she wished to make him suffer as she bad win his love, and cast it scornfully away A few weeks after that never-to-be- forgotten day, her father died; and af- ter spending three years at a fashiona- ble boarding-school, she became a mem- ber of the family of Mr. Weston, who dad been appointed her guardian. In those years she had not forgotten her resolve. It prompted her to redouble her exertions in acquiring knowledge. Ifbhemust always awkward, she would not be and at the end of that time she was the most ac- complished young lady in the establish- ment. Three years had greatly altered her appearance; tho thin form had rounded to perfect symmetry the face, pale still, except when some emotion lent a passing' flush, was exquisitely shaped the expression of the mouth, perhaps a little too divided, was soft- ened by the dreamy look that was ha- bitual to. the deep black eyes. But three years hod taken away quite as much as ihcy gave her. The simple, trusting faith of the little coun- try girl who had poui-cd her henrt'e de- votion at Edward Wolverton's feet was gone forever. She bad grown selfish, cold and worldly. In all those she had never oaee met Edward verton and, of course, her revenge had not been constantly in her mind. Neith- er had she entirely lost sight of it; and now tne time had come. Presently she heard str, it! f. r a moment it were not I blmuld thiuk %ou bad felt the pnin of a f.iK-> lovi r fmcp, you sang that with so inuch fee-ling." remarked the co'onoi. 1 I was not aware I had a listener." she replied, without noticing his re- mark "1 thought you had gone to the beach with Ethel and Hamilton." I did but the attraction here was so great that it drew me b.iek in tpite of myself." She turned her away from hi-- and the l.i.-hes dnx pod over her eyes, veiling the pun that shadowed itself there Then cnuie the words s-he had clo quent words of love and en- treaty. But no syllable answered him.

"hingiue to understand you were not ii.different to Leading you don't have I t" she carelessly answered thru modulating her tones to a cureful tion of his as she reineuibeied them when he uttered those words, she said. Can't one "amuse one's self a little without being accused of serious inten- tions A flush rose to his very forehead, and he looked at her with an expression of utter bewilderment, through which a flash of recognition soon broke. You are Alberta he ex- claimed. From the first you remind- ed me of some could not tell I see Alberta. My own little Alberta, you loved me once; you can not be indifferent to me now. I weak and foolish, but I did not mean what I said. Oh. Alberta fur- give those cruel words, and tell me that you love uie still Miss f.eiiworth's dark eyes flashed Forgive you You don't know what you ask. You de- stroyed forever my faith in truth and goodness; you took away my every hope and joy in life. But the 'ignorant little country srirl' had pride enough to keep her heart from breaking, and to make her to be revenged upon you." He looked at her for a moment in silence. There was no shadow of ten- derness in those'dark flashing: eyes no flush on the pale, proud face, only a scornfnl curl in the red lips. He saw there was no relenting, and turned away with an aching heart. he said "Well, if that was your purpose, you have accom- plished it. I hope it JJiay bring you And without another word or glance he was gone, and, perhaps, forever. As the thought of what had sac- rificed for her pride swept over her, she bent her proud head, and wept unre- strainedly for sho had learned, 5n those brief weeks, to love htm as dearly as in those old days, when he won her heart but to trample it under his feet.

MADAME PAR EPA KOSA has been in- viud to sing at the royal state cosccrt on occasion of tlie marriage of the Prin- cess Louise. It is an interesting cir- cumstance that during her last profes- sional visit to London she sang at the wedding festivities of the Princess' sis- ter. Her debut at Covent Garden will take place soon afterward.
