She tv A3 fragile and timid, with long-lashed hlue eyes and soft, curling, pale-brown hair. Very much less of vehement denial would have sufficed to drive the'little creature discouraged from her fiithcr’s presence; but so great was his anger that even this explosive monosyllable was not enough to express his excitement. “You will uot go near the AVyldes, if KateWylde sends for you every hourin the da.v. Not that I care for them; but you nleet Lannt Winslow there, and—and I have other plans for you, Dou’t deny it!” eyeing sharply the wide blue eyes, quickly upraised. “Deny it; father ? Why should I ?” Peter Boscobel frowned aud stopped. There was something in the fálr childlike face which quited his excitement. “I did nut say that you cared anything about him, hut I have heard—. It is enough that I say you cau not go 1” abruptly. Lily silently left the roou, a submissive little figure in a lilac dress, so delicate and frail a little figure, that the man’s heart smote him as he looked after it. It was only two years since Lily’s mother had died, and she B*as exceedingly like her iiiotlier. . “You can go anywhere else, Lily,” he called after her more kindly. Lily went back to the parlor, and tried bravely to continue her practicing; but after a few niinutc.s, the small fingers faltcre<l from their task, and the fair head drooped upon the folded arm, y’hlle the great tears, bravely kept back so long, splashed uiKiu the piano keys. Peter Boscobel would have stoutly denied that he did not love his daughter; but since his love seemed never to temper his sternness, what did it mutter to that tender spirit that she B*as secretly his idol ? Unfortunately, his was one of those exceptional uatures which do not know how to show love. His child, who was his heiress and the object ot his life’s ambition, starved and perished daily for a realization ot aflfoc-tioii. Never in her life, she remembered, had her father bestowed upon her a caress. No other want was left unsatisfied : eA’cry accx)mplj3liment was bestowed upon her. bho lived iu luxury ; but, so exacting his, nature, so stcru his manner, tliis man had ever extended a slavery of force over the sole daughter of his house ami heart. But that he was her father, aud, apparently, the sole arbiter of her fate, she would never have spoken to him. So many, many times, when he did uot dream of it, he had nearly broken her heart. It was uot her disappointincnt she was crying for now—Ihongh, in h'cr loneliness, she had longed for the visit to the pleasant Wyldcs—hut that she had been trcateil as a rebel, aud her innocent request met with a harshness which she felt had no cause. But by and by her tears dried with a secondary thoughtr—ÍAiunt Winslow. Why sUould her father care that she did meet him there? He was Kate Wyldc’s cousin—had been, brought up with her. He w*as CoKiiiel "Wyldo’s favorite nephew*. He was a goiitleman. She was sure, in girlish phraseology, that he w as “iiioe.” What gentle ways he hadj What a mellow voice to sing with 1 What a responsive thrill Kate’s hearty delight that he was not going to Florida for the winter had awakened in her hoai*t. All at once her father’s moaning came to her. The scarlet blood surged to her temples, and she caught her breath. Handsome Launt Winslow choose her for a sw'eethcart I She h.*ut never dreamed of such a thing. But now she started up nervously, and began wandering restlessly alwut the room, toiiuliing things absently and aiinlcsMly, the young cheek flushing and paling by turns. Had she caretl to go to the Wyldcs because Launt Winslow was there? She ’.vas fain to deny it, hut the sudden voice ot her heart held her spellbound aud in maidenly fear. Poor, lonciv little LUy! This experience liatl found her out very early. She was hut seventeen, and modesty itself. It was not iu her to arrogate to herself any im]>ortance as Peter Boscohcl’s heiress; and she did not know how' lovely she was with her forget-me-not eyes aud simple sw’cetness. “Launt AV^tislow was no younffster, but, at twenty-seven, a man of the world, and, uuconscioiisly, her hero. She did not dream that he had openly expressed his admiration for her, aud that it had reached her father 8 ears. But. to do Laiint Winslow justice, he did uot care a fig for her father’s money. Pretty little Lily was his ideal of what a woman ought to he, and his pleasure iu her was iuvolun-tary. Lily came no more to the Wyldes, aud he Wiis annoyed. Aud, havlug his little idiosyncrasicH ot character, and accidently learning tliat Peter Boscobel had said that his daughter “wasn’t for a son of Jick Winslow’s,” he determined to sec Lily, and let her know how* much he thought of her. “Poor, pretty little thing!

There was some promotiou in military aifaire when both were iu the army which made my father and hers rivals, aud Boscohei would never give my father his title of captain, and hated him as long as he lived.” This Lannt Winslow confided to his cousin Kate. But Lily continued invisible. Meeting Captain .Tack Winslow’s son in the street one day, and taking covert cognizance of his feet and inches, Peter Boseohcrs dislike to the handsome young man grew stronger than ever, and he went home and shorteued Lily’s chain by a link or two.

I don’t like to go in tne carnage, see j'oung girls strolling about the citv.’ But Lily did not go out enough for her own good. When she did, she went in the carriage, as her father in-strncUid; and so it chanced that Launt Winslow saw the sweet pale face once, twice, thrice, among the purple cushions of the Boscobel barouche, and from the sidewalk lifted liis hat. Each time the eyes of the two met the blue ones, startled, sweet; the liazcl ones, Cloqncn4,    . Lannt Winslow' meant now, if it could be done, to win Lily Boscobel. Her father did not guess the resolve in the heart ot the young man, hut was planning against him none the less steadily. He did not w'ant ha nart with Lily, hut he had a wcakne.ss for rank, ainl for the first time in his life he dined with a iiohlenian. And Lord laither Lawton Langley had siiUl: “1 have seen your daughter. A lovely young lady, Mr. Bosco-bcl. Pray give me., an introduction.” Plain Peter Boscohei W'us flattered as many a more superficial man had been, and secretly began to make plans for I.ily. 8he was pretty and aooomplished, and he w'as rich. Why should she not marry this nobleman, who was seeking for a wife, people said ? 80 he brought Lord Luther home to dine one day, and Lily was exquisite ill a dinner d^ess of wine dark velvet and still as a nun, hut none the Ic.HS lovely for that.

One ro-scinbicsn niagiiiiicently gilded twelfth cake, a se<!omi may he Iik(?ncd to a collection of melons poised on the top of a turban ; a third Is a blue sugar loat with the hood tied round its base, tnc point entotf and the round space painted red; a fouiTh re])rcsents one of those enormous shells which mark a mariner’s hoinc; a fifth is shaped like a beehive, licing nothing but a long roundlettivistiHi six times to the form of a licad^ and finishing at the crown in a kind of tendril. Others have enormous fans like brims corning out on either side of the brow and streaked so as to look like the petals of a gigantic sweet jiea, or the same brims are seen with tall crowns covered with gilt braid. And if vve may trust Uccello, still more fantastic was the headgear oil llaUMlfcinldlicra* Iu ooo of bis battle pieces at the Louvre the hats of the combatants come out from tlie background like so many great aud marvelhiisly streaked Chiucsc lanterns dancing through dark streets at the head of a procession iu carnival lime. Thus tlic spirit of evil sought in the fifteenth century to create in Italy a Merry Andrew world and so turn men’s thoughts from fastening too seriously on the dissolution which threatened their iiulionul life and liberties. \ Chui*oh <ioii»a l>ojj’8 GumhI Memory. [Ucv. S. (JuihiDg In Congrej;at'*)aal'et.] When pastor in Sonthbridge, Mass., a geiitioinan connected vvith the church frequently called at the parsonage, accompanied by a dog of rather small size, which bccamo a pet at the house. He always went vvith his master on Sunday to church, and would lie down at tbe doorway of the iwiw, which was near the pulpit. As soon as I commenced Ihe service the dog would invariably start and walk into the altar audio the top of the pulpit steps, and there Ho down lacing the congregation and remain a quiet and attentive lintcncr through the service. As the congregation rose at the singing of the last hymn the dog would retrace his steps to his master’s pew, resiiect-fiilly wait there till the benediction was pronounced, aud then retire with his mast(*r. The gciitlcmau removed to an adjoining town. Six weeks after his removal I exchanged pulpits with . his pastor aud entered (he clinrch and pulpit, not having seen him or the (log since he left 8oiith-bridge. When I comiiu'iiced service that dog recognized my voice aud scratched at the ]>cw door to be let out; and, coming to the top of the pulpit stairs, he lay down as formerly till the closing hymn, when he arose and vveiii l>aek to the pcwas he did in 8outh bridge. This surprised the« ongiega-tion, as the dog, always at church, had roniaincd in the ¡mw, (|ulctly till at this time, and never went to the pulpit artcrwaid.
