The room was elegantly decorated with Flag Hun g in festoons sabers formed into stars and All the other paraphernalia of military glory. The floor was crop ded with officers of the army and Nan a of every rank from the midship Man and Cadet upwards. The military band of the Post occupied the or Chestra. Never perhaps had there Beer assembled at West Point a prouder assemblage of Beauty than that which Iheng entranced the beholder. There were dark brunettes from Baltimore Golden haired Sebesi Flora Charleston tall stately Philadelphia Gay Belles from More ostentatious new York and Ejen the fair blonde daughters of new England with their Blueeyes their Clear complexions their proud dignity of Mien. But among the Brilliant array there was one pre Ernie entry Beautiful. Tall and shapely in her figure she moved through the Rooni with the stately motion of a Swan elicit ing admiration from every beholder. Her dress was simple yet costly and Beautiful. It waa evident that the severest taste presided Over the Toilette of tiie facing Tang Ellen Belvoir for Fasini sting every one Felt her to he who had listened though but for a moment to sallies or her Siv Blued sentiment. Her every look word and to was Grace itself. She possessed Are combination of qualities which it Ute the lady in Contra distinction. That cons Toiv not her hear she and ofe Nobl up v to o of he Man Coul now cited Elle Golf a she Sion a no of a o the Mere pretender. But it was her manners alone that rendered o. Her politeness that was of her she was no Mere Automa ton would have been equally affable kind had she been born in a cot but alas it was the misfortune Len Belvoir to have been born of family and she had been brought Ith High of the Superior blood. In this originated a trait r character which is shared by too of her sex a scorn for All who not Trace lineage to an by Noble origin with hers. But surrounded by admirers and sex by the Gay scene even i Belvoir had for the moment for n her prejudices. I rho is that elegant said o her Cousin during an in Ermis betwixt the sets glancing towards Ile looking officer in the uniform the army he has been in the room a full half hour and yet he Otla sked to be introduced to me. She added gaily f l am quite d at his h Coz you will made him re of it laughingly replied her has i de pique pent Cousin or i mistake your sex. But see he is coming this Way. He is an old mess mate of mine and 1 will Intro Duce Papain Lanly glad to Seey advancing from Ellen s Side her Cousin grasped the hand of the approaching officer. The salutation was warmly returned and Fror a while the two friends were engaged in talking of the e cents that had transpired to each since they met last. At length Stan by s yes happened to fall on the Spiri Tual f ice of miss Belvoir and from their look her Cousin knew at once that an introduction would be considered a favor. He accordingly presented the Young officer to Ellen Ftera across of leaving his Cousin and Stanley and i ther tags her. Fines Mira 0.0 what is so favourable to love As a Gay Oom i and what Ball room so Ball i Dang Elle Ery thing but to Rous As that of West Point both and Stanley was soon lost to eve each other. They and Rome naked in d together any until they became the of of what Perez though general re before the festivities of the no had terminated it waa univer Roa sipped about that the Beautiful Belvoir and the hitherto heart attain Stanley had fallen Mutu n Iovu. Some affected to sneer at me wondered How it did happen coup by fit e in the room and were add i or each other. Tie a Ball room was for Ellen Belvoir had passed Winters since her coming out it meeting with any one to sub get three with Diw Ler Virgin heart but from mom ant she saw Stanley she Felt a Tranke interest in him. His Gallant bearing his polished manners his Fine conversational Powers and above All a certain frankness of development to wards her so different from the sick Ning flattery daily poured into her ears appealed at once to her fancy and soon subdued her judgment. She Felt that Stanley was one to whom she could look up and she that Only such a character could possess her his elegant Lone vibrated in her ears Long after they had parted for the night and even in her dreams Ehe Law his Manly form bending admiringly Over her. Stanley had been equally charmed with his partner. Years had elapsed since he had been appointed to one of stations on the far West and during that period he had been completely excluded from refined female he occupied the Lime in picturing to himself the Beau Ideal of a being such As he could choose for a wife. On Bis return to the East a had met Many Lovely beings whose attractions his friends thought him incapable of resist ing but nearly a year had past and lie appeared even less susceptible than on his return. He had sought in vain to realize his romantic dreams and finding was Content to enjoy the refutation of a confirmed Bachelor. He thought he had met the divinity which he had so Long adored in secret for in Ellen Belvoir he fancied he saw every trait Vav Hych he sought to have in a Wice. As he became More intimate with the Lovely girl he grew More confirmed in this first impression and fortnight s sojourn at West Point where miss Bel voir had been passing the summer Stanley became completely in nor was Ellen less enamoured of the Young officer Whoso Gallant bearing attracted every Eye and whose services in the Field had already won for him an enviable name. Hen therefore Stanley proposed for her accepted it for she was an orphan an heiress and in Possession of her property. It was arranged that the wedding should take place the ensuing Winter. The lovers at length parted but Only for two Short months preparatory to their marriage. Business called the lieutenant to Washington while Hia affianced Bride accompanied by her Cousin returned to Boston by the Way of Albany. It was at the close of a hot sultry Day that the Carriage in which they travelled Drew up at a neat Public House in those quiet villages which Are scattered through Massachusetts. They had journeyed the whole Day Chi Duke the mountains and the sight of Tho White inn with its Green venetian shutters and its pretty Garden in the rear All Beto Kening the tidiness of the owner was peculiarly refreshing to the travellers. The pleasant looking widow lady who met them at the door in creased their Delight with the place. A Sweet Village you have Edid the gentleman on alighting As he followed the Landlady to a Small but sex que timely neat yes sir although it is an swered the Landlady rarely that we have Many strangers visiting Here and to the place is much As it was the Days of our there was something in the Low Sweet modulated tone of the speaker which made the interrogator Start. Surely that voice belonged to no common innkeeper s widow. There was that finish in the tones which is the surest evidence of a refined mind. His Cousin seemed to notice this also for when the Landlady had retired Ajjie our hostess is certainly above the common would almost think she had been born a lady and trans formed by some malignant Genius into a common innkeeper s she is obviously a woman of Edu some one whom Dis Tress has driven to this business for livelihood. She has not always kept an Inu be assured still nothing ought to have induced her to stoop to so degrading an occupy said his fair Cousin her prejudices at once taking alarm there Are ways enough in which an impoverished lady can obtain a livelihood without resorting to the Trade of an innkeeper pshaw Coz you Are wrong after Al fact of her having adopted this business is a sufficient proof that she is no and she gave a some what haughty toss of the head a a she spoke. When after an hour s rest they me at were ushered i Nio a Nea Oom a door from which opened into in apartment beyond apparently a bed porn. This door was ajar disclosing a portrait hanging an an opposite Wall the1 Light in this inner apartment Vitas somewhat dim but Ellen could distinguish that the picture represented a Young Man in uniform and the second 1 dance assured her that the portrait was hat of her affianced Lover. The Ady noticed her emotion with some Surprise and As she sat Down to do the donors of the table looked to Ellen for a explanation. Mies Belvoir fear no that her agitation had been noticed Pray if not too inquisitive May i ask whose portrait i see within there it bears a striking resemblance of one i Lave known it is the portrait of my quiet y and cred the Landlady but a proud smile lit up her face As if uhe was conscious of the Worth of him whom she spoke. his name breathlessly asked Ellen. Edward was the response he has been on the Frontier for and but lately returned. His first Vuk continued the fond Mother with paid to and 0n his departure to sent that portrait to do y6u know where he is now asked Ellen concealing by a violent Effort the interest she full in tha re ply. At Washington i wrote Rne about a fortnight Sinco Fiorin vvet.1 l out stating that he should Havo to Isit Washington soon on s your Tea miss agreeable she continued suddenly recollecting that in Iier fondness for her child she had for gotten the duties of her station. Shall we picture the struggle that look place in the mind of Ellen that night after she had retired her Cou sin Little thinking of the effect it was to he bantered her on her love or the Landlady s son and had thus aroused prejudices which Only her of Section had hitherto kept Down what should she the proud the gifted the ugh born wed the Eon of a Village Landlady Long she Lay and thought of it and every moment her Pride grew stronger so that although at first her Ove had struggled the Mastery her Side of birth eventually came off Victor. Perhaps she had never lored with that single hearted Ness which is a True woman s so it Rose ensuing determined to break off the match with her she resolved however not to apprise lira of her determination until she reached Boston. During the rest of the journey Ellen assumed a gaiety of tone Little in keep-1 ing with her real feelings. No confidant of her Cousin for it was a part of heir self willed and imperious nature to rely wholly on herself. But when they reached Boston he accompanied her to her residence and on taking leave said laughingly in reply to approach to Sinai. I we advanced says Robinson the Valley still opened wider and wider with a gentle ascent and became full of shrubs and Tufts of herbs shut in on each by lofty Granite ridges with Rug ged shattered peaks a thousand feel High while the face of Horeb Rose directly before us. Both my companion and myself involuntarily exclaimed there is room enough for a in the top of the assent or water Fine Broad Plain Lay before us sloping Down gently to wards the s. S. E., enclosed by rugged and venerable mountains of dark Gran Ite Stern naked splintered peaks and ridges of in describe grandeur a and terminated at a distance of More thai a mile by the bold and awful front rising perpendicularly in frowning majesty from twelve to fifteen Hundred feet in height. It was a solemn grandeur wholly unexpected and such As we had never seen and the associations which at the moment rushed up on our minds were almost overwhelm ing. As we Merit on new Points of interest were continually opening to our View. On the left of Horeb a deep narrow Valley runs up s. S. E., Between lofty Walls of Rock As if in continuation of the s. Corner of the Plain. In this Valley at the distance of near a Ricile form the Plain stands the Convent and the deep verdure of i4s fruit Trees nud cypresses is seen As the traveller Oasis of Beauty amid by ols Ternest desolation. At the s. W. Corner of the Plain tha Cliffs Al so retreats Anil forms a recess 01 open place extending from the Plain West Ward for some distance. From this re Cess there runs up a similar narrow Val Ley on the West of Horeb called Elle a parallel to that in which the Convent stands and in it is the deserted Convent Elarba a with a Garden of Olive and other fruit Trees not visible from the Plain. A third Garden lies at the Mouth of Al Leja and if i6urlh further West in the recess just mentioned. Th6 whole Plain is called Wady or Rajah and the Valley of the Convent is known to the arabs As Wady. Is the Vale of Jethro. Still advancing the front of Horeb Rose like a Wall before us and one can approach quite to the foot and touch the mount. Directly before its base is the deep bed of a Tor rent by which in the Rainy season the Waters of Al Leja and the mountains around the recess pass Down eastward across the Plain forming at the commencement of Wady then issues by an opening through the Cliffs of the Eastern Fine Broad Valley affording the Only easy Access to the Plain and Convent. As we crossed the Plain our feelings were strongly affected at finding Here so unexpectedly a spot up entirely adopted to the scriptural account of the giving of the Law. No traveller has described this Plain or even men Liqued it except in a slight and general manner prob ably because the most have reached the old inn in As a sort of remembrance of old the shot Struc k Home Ellen had renewed the struggle in her breast be tout love and Pride and the former fad almost Corne off conqueror when this unlucky retort of her Cousin aroused All her haughtiness. She had Many Good feelings but had lived so Long in he world that she had become a be Irever in the truth of its what a Zouki her Young friends say she thought if she married a Landlady s son Sho went into the House and on the Spur of the moment wrote a Dis Missal of her Lover. And How he receive it ? More in boil ova than in indignation. He sat Down and wrote a reply in which he coldly notified the receipt of her letter. No unworthy regret did he no attempt did to make to change Hei determination. His love had hitherto blinded him to this trait of Ellen character but now it appeared in All Iti glaring deformity before him and renounced her certainly not without pain but without regret. And years passed and he saw Anc wooed another and a fairer Bride. But Ellen never married. She repented Loo soon of her conduct. Perhaps oth Era avoided her on account of he heartlessness towards Stanley but fron i the hour of their separation she fade away As if Soma secret sorrow was at her heart. She lived to become wha i she most old maid. 192. Cousinin. As amusing coach. A the. A Short time ago a Gen Witt into the coach office at Utica and booked himself for a Resi Dence near Oswego. In the coach of fice Wai a Beautiful girl. The gentle Man thought of All persons in the world he Bould like her for a travelling com Panion. To Hii great Delight As. The coach drove up to the door he found that she was a passenger. Upon Teing asked where she would like to sit she said by this alluding to our hero. He Felt much and thanked Hea Ven that his personal appearance had captivated so charming a female. Smack went the whip round went the wheel. The gentleman con versed with the lady he found her free and and from her agreeable Man Ner As if he had known her All his life. Evening closed in upon them. With evening came Twilight and very shortly afterwards darkness. On rum bled the coach jumping and jerking in a most remarkable manner. It Wasan of politeness doubtless on the part of the gentleman to encircle the Waist of his fair companion with his Arm just to keep her from jolting to which she might otherwise be subjected. He did this with Sorre timidity. To his Surprise no objection was made to encouraged by the allowed As had spread Sable veil Over that portion of the Earth on which the 10 us a vast air Bung he Drew her to him Impi Intel a upon her a retort of Heri. 1 Convent by another route without Pas Adieu my Sweet Coz and Remer sing and perhaps too because Ber when you Are married to buy the neither the highest Points of Sinai Dow called Jebel nor the still loftier Summit of St. Catharine is visible from any part of it. Tha extreme difficulty and even danger of the ascent was Well rewarded by the Prospect that now opened before us. The Thole Plain re Rajah Lay spread out beneath our feet with the adjacent Wadys and mountains while Wady e so Shelleah on the right and the recess on the left4, both connected with and opening broadly from or Rajah presented an Era which serves nearly to double that of tha Plain.

He told his fair compan Ion that they must shortly separate and became quite poetical upon the Occa Sion. Spoke of Here we met too soon to and made use of Many other romantic speeches expressive of his deep regret at being compelled to sever to soon from one who had been As a Bright and glorious Sunbeam of his earthly pilgrimage one whose Mem Ory would live for Ever and a Day after in his bosom. To his exceeding Surprise the Young lady declared he had been so exceedingly kind that the could not think of parting with him and that she would go with him to Hia Uncle s House. He told her that he cared not take such a Liberty. That he had been to Europe for some years and that him self a stranger comparatively to his Uncle he could not introduce a lady who was a stranger to him and to his relation. The lady evinced hysterical symptoms. His Arm encircled her Waist and their lips again owned a Sweet communion. The coach stopped. The had arrived at the end of his journey. He bade the lady Farewell. It was no go. She got out of the coach with him and followed him to his Uncle s House. A was in a dreadful state of mind. However pleasant a kiss in the dark was on the pret Iowa night the incur Branco of a Petticoat on this occasion was any thing but satisfactory. He walked into the parlor and and with what he conceived to be in brushing impudence the lady followed him. While to was thinking How be could possibly explain the affair he was welcomed by his Uncle and the Young lady was welcomed too and kissed by All the family. She was his Cousin. On his entering the coach office at Utica and booking his name and place of destination she knew at once that it was her relative and resolved to have a laugh at h is expense and perhaps fhe did when she told her stage coach adventure and the fright to which she put her Cousin.
