She is a of the Woods i know and no human poured such magic music. She we de " born m these i he waa right. Or. Pera had been a merchant had failed through the villainy Omo for whom he had endorsed largely and a guided with the hollow world he to 1 gather and Owrel of Nis Ortune and will his wife a Flat daughter nought peace and truth in the reign of simple nature. Mrs. Persa devoted herself to Tho education of her Only child and Thore was no womanly accomplishment or Branch of polite literature with which Rosalie was not perfectly familiar. Startled thou Gli she was by the sudden appearance of the Hunters she replied gracefully to their salutations and received the Little trem bling Fawn with real pleasure. The gentlemen insisted upon taking it Home for her and Leon Ard was surprised to find How near they were to or. Persa s Fine farm and neat dwelling which had been hid by the thick Evergreen of the skirting Woods. Leonard was delighted with All he by fell m love with or. And mrs. Persa and ran raving about Rosalie. They walked in the Fine Fields and Orchards and Luxuriate in the Gar Den s wilderness of Flowers and when the Young men left Leonard fancied himself hopelessly in love and Rosalie when Sho had Given her Mother a Good night kiss retired with new emotions in her innocent heart. Leonard seemed to her so Superior to the Young men of her rustic neighbourhood. The Chance acquaintance grew into an inti Macy and Davis began to that the Beau was winning favor with the Forest Belle. 1 will Lay a stick in his he said to himself the upstart to come Here and eclipse us so he took an Opportunity to give Leonard to understand that Rosalie was his betrothed. I shall have the singing Bird said he before the Snow Leonard was thunderstruck. He said to himself would have expected to Rind a coquette Here and then she seems so innocent so truthful. How sincere he seemed and How her voice trembled when she replied to me i have never encouraged the addresses of any Man but an assumed simplicity is the height of a coquette s however i will match her if the boy god favor now what a dolt this Leonard bras to believe the lying words of one whom he might have sus of jealous rivalry rather than the fair truth of in unsophisticated heart. But so it a. People will sometimes shut their eyes when the Blok to open before them and listen believe ugly to some lying expositor. So Leonard in his wonderful consistency resolved to show his a of coquetry by playing Tho Parton male coquette to perfection. To the Ferne went on he seeking by every artifice to win her favor and she pleased his attentions. In truth she Felt All the interest in him that a pure Young girl can permit herself to feel in one who has made no positive declaration. At length it was time for Leonard to return to the City. Now he would strike the blow. The coquette s heart would quiver under his Cool contempt. So he called at or. Persa a and with All his panoply of Manly dignity inquired for Rosalie. Of she is in great trouble said mrs. Pera. Edward Davis dog has chased her Fawn into the Woods and though it will probably return to night she a so much distressed and alarmed that i told her one might fancy she had lost her Best Friend and she went out weeping into the Garden. No doubt Bhe is in her he found her there sure enough. Child that she was she had wept herself to sleep with the tears still on her Long Eye lashes and some drops trembling like gems amongst the forget me not on her bosom. She is very he said and sorrowful. But How came Davis dog1 Here to Chase the Lawn Well i will have a kiss any but his breath no soon touched her Cheek than she started wildly up in All the loveliness of blushing confusion. I am sorry to have disturbed mias he said coldly. I called to bid you Good Bye. I leave to Morrow for the haunts of civilized life. I no heartily weary of climbing logs wading tearing through Brush and Brambles and worse than All herding with your country Rosalie stared at him in Surprise he had come out in a new character entirely. Still she did not dream of a final Farewell. She took the forget me not from her bosom hemmed As they were with tears and offered them to him with a sad smile and trembling hand. He took them hesitatingly and stooping plucked a Broad Golden dandelion and offered it return. I shall not accept she said with forced playfulness. I do not deserve indeed miss Persa i think you he said supercilious by. And Here permit me to remark that i hold the character which this Flower represents As the most despicable of All i do not understand she replied but if indeed a coquette be contemptible what should be said of a male flirt 1 a girl certainly coquette with none but those who choose to Kneel at her shrine. A Man May Rove the world Over Bow at every altar win a Hundred hearts merely to cast Thorn from him and rail against the heartless you at least have no he replied. Did you not Tell me you never saw a Man whom you could love 1" Rosalie had uttered these words in the Early Tjart of their acquaintance though Only with reference to the past. He looked upon her. She was White 03 the Muslin of her dress and and Shook like a Lily As the storm is tearing it from its Stem. He seemed to enjoy her agony took her hand kissed it carelessly and turned away. She did not raise her eyes but stood As if comprehend ing nothing until she heard the Garden Gate close after the departing villain and then with a wild shriek Sho Sank upon the ground. But Rosalie had been too Well trained to suffer her self to Repine Over Tho disappointment. She saw that Leonard waa unworthy and would not waste tears Over his memory. She had esteemed him. He had taken advantage of her inexperience to wound and to insult tier. She thought of him at once with regret and abhor rence. I Edward Davis sought her hand. He was gently but firmly rejected. Autumn came again with the regally Robed Indian summer in which Harvest time of the Earth it seems As if the departing Vernal season lingers and looks Back with her brightest Rich est smile of Promise before she leaves to Winter the sleep watch of the Earth. Rosalie was a year older lovelier and Wiser Harry Leonard was also Wiser. He had bitterly repented his cruel treatment of the gentle girl. He Felt How much nobler it would have been to have asked her candidly whether she was engaged to Davis. He ran the round of pleasure seeking earnestly some one whose loveliness might fill the void that Rosalie had left in his heart. It was All in vain. She is the Only woman on Earth that i can he said and without her i am a Misera ble Man. I will go and beg her to forgive and love i he Rosalie was cold and Calm As a still Winter Midnight. To his impassioned plea she replied the delicate vase once broken can never lie perfectly United. So Confidence once Vio lated Cun never be restored. You deceived me once and i suffered. You can never win me to believe again. Hero a the Flower you mockingly gave to a pure hearted child and she took the dandelion from a Book receive it now again. It is All i can bestow upon he snatched the Flower Tore the poor thing to atoms cursed it and his own stupidity and then wept like a baby. I cannot blame you he said but i am forever two years more1, and Rosalie was the Happy mistress of a neat White parsonage House and the Young Clergyman her husband Felt that Hia heart could Trust m Uci.

Prom Ille orca the evening the ceremony was performed which made Tim and Rachael a unit the company had liquored All round Tim having previously talked it up with Ruc Mel boldly announced the desperate Resolution of starting the next morning on a grand tour of observe Tijon. 1 had always bin to he said and never seen nut Hin and now he was gom straight to g and Afore he come Back he would see a Steamboat if there was such a thing i the Village of g r was about fifty Miles Distant lying on the Ohio River and a journey there from Tim s residence in those Days was deemed a great undertaking. Some of them thought Tim had taken leave of Hia senses or certainly he was not in Earnest but he assured them he was and the next morning tack Ling up old and in a Supply of pork and Beans forthe journey Tim and the now mrs. Higgins started on their bridal tour. The second Day the hopeful pair without Accident arrived at g just As they were entering the town it so happened that the Steamboat Pennsylvania was rounding in to make Landing. Tim caught sight of her smoke pipes and in an ecstacy of wonder and Delight cried out she comes now by Hokey look at her rach Jeru Salem jest As Squire Stokely said smokes like a Burnin Foller.

No Balking Rachael i m going on the Plank was out and Tim followed slowly by Rachael boldly walked up and soon stood alongside the engine. See How she sweats they must have put her through. I say old said Tim address ing the Engineer move her hints a Little i want to see How she Shell move replied the Man of steam better keep out of her Tim and Rachael now wended their Way to the main deck and so completely were they absorbed with what they saw that Thoy did not observe the preparations making for her Depar Ture. At the last tap of the Bell Tim thought there must be a Meetin had no idea that it was anything which concerned him. At length As Tim afterwards expressed it she began to breathe hard and the water began to and Tim for the first time observed they were in the midst of the hello Here old Boss screamed Tim i say Cap a what you bout where you Goin or they were now under full head Way and Tim saw the town and old Gray disappearing magic.

By this time the Captain had Learned of poor Tim s misfortune and kindly ordered the boat to land and Tim and Rachel once More too on Terra Firma. Footing it Back with All Deg Patch they found old Gray still fast to the j Post and not Many minutes elapsed before i i head was turned homeward with Tim ant Rachel who were perfectly satisfied with what they had seen of the world in general and their experience in Steamboat tag in particular. By Sou Tivey from the second Vollino of the life and Cor res Pant Lenarc cd the late Rottert sail hey edited by his son and in this country by Harper Brothers we make the following amusing extracts a fellow voyager. To my Groat satisfaction we had in our company one of the most celebrated characters it this Day a Man whose name is As widely known As treat 01 of cent perhaps Bonaparte he is not above five feet but notwithstanding his figure soon became the most important personage of the party. Said he As soon a he set his foot in the vessel i am a unique i go anywhere just As the whim takes me. This morning sir i had no idea whatever of going to Dublin i did not think of it when i left Home my wife and family know nothing of the trip. I have Only one shirt with me besides what i have on my Rie phew Here sir has not another shirt to Hia Back but Money sir thing May be had at Dublin who the Devil is this fellow 1 thought i. We talked of he1 had just bought one Hundred the weakest drop fifteen above the West of England out he pulls an Exeter newspaper from his Bank pocket Book was stuffed with Irish and English and i really am obliged to him for some clues to discover forged paper. Talk talk everlasting he could draw for Money on any town in the United or in America. At last he was made known for or. Solomon. At night i1 set upon the doctor and turned the discourse upon disease in general beginning with the Liverpool re Medy had proved most like the cordial Balm of Gilead at last i ventured to touch upon a tender he conceive or. Bodum s Medicine to be at All analogous to his own 1 not in the least sir color smell All totally different As for or. Bodum All the world knows is Manifest to every his advertisements Are All stolen verbatim it literati from mine. Sir i Don t think it Worth while to notice such a fellow but enough of Solomon and his Nephew and successor that is to Reho Boam of Gilead cub a a real irishman. An Irish Tea h builds him a turf stye gels Hia fuel from the bogs Diga his Patch of potatoes and then lives upon them in idleness like a True Savage he does not think it Worth while to work that he May better himself. Potatoes and this they Are born and bred and whiskey sends them to the third heaven at once. If Davy had one of them in his Laboratory he could Analyse Hia flesh blood and Bones into nothing but potatoes and butter milk and they Are the primary elements of an irishman. Their love of eternally engages them m mischievous combinations which Are eternally Balbed by their own blessed instinct of blundering. The United irishmen must have obtained Possession of Dublin but for a Bull. On the night appointed the mail coach was to be stopped and Burnt about a mile from town and that was the signal the lamplighters were in the plot and of to be sure the Honey would not Light a lamp in Dublin that for fear the people should see what was going on of course alarm was taken and All the mischief prevented. Modesty characterizes them As much Here As on the Side of the water. A Man stopped Rickman yester be obliged to you sir if you la Plaise to ask or. Abbot to give me a place of sixty or seventy pounds a year favors indeed Are asked Here with As a blushing and obstinate a perseverance As in Portugal. This is the strik ing Side of the dark colors that first strike a stranger their Good qualities you cannot so soon discover. Genius indeed immediately appears to characterize them a love of saying Good nine Hundred and in a thousand never dream of attempting in the course of they lives. When lord Hardwicke came Over there fell a Fine rain the first after a Long series of dry weather la servant of or. Lindsay s heard an irishman Call to his Comrade in the to Pat and shall we have a riot course a phrase to when this rain Luvill Breed a Little potatoes will be pushing nut the big ones did i Send in my last the Noble Bull that Rickman heard he was late in company when a gentle Jan looked watch and cried it is to Matrow morning must u ish you Good n cold in the Olden times.

Peculiarities of authors. to bite his Finger nails to the Quick an imitation of his dogmatism and crust Ness. Addison was remarkable for the irregularity of his pulse but the heart was believed to be in the right place and of proper Pope was of a Frame so feeble that he was accustomed to Brace himself up with stays pad ded with Cotton. He occasionally found time also to lace his enemies. Hume the historian usually composed while reclining upon a sofa. He did not search for Fane she came to visit him. Menage while science covered his head with laurels used to cover his feet of stockings. I Ben Johnson used to sit Silett in Learned company and suck As Fuller says not Only his wine but their several like Shaks care he held the Mirror up to nature but choose sometimes to look into the Glass himself. Mag Habeich librarian to the grand Duke of Tuscany and a very Learned Man was found of petting spiders the webs of which he would not suffer to be molested. He Seldom left Bis books ate drank and elect among them thus imitating the Domestic propensities and Industry of his strange favourites. Rosseau used to knit lace strings when in company of illiterate people for the purpose of concerning the uneasiness which their gabble gave him. Steele constantly preached Economy to others but forgot to practice it himself. He was always in debt an once pulled the nose of an acquaintance who hesitated to lend him a Large sum of Money. Bloomfield wrote Moat of his poem the Farmer with Chalk upon the top of a pair of wind instrument until this time probably unknown to the choir of Uaea. The family circl1. I Reading the scriptures.

In the sacred desk or in the social meeting or at Domestic worship How greatly it tedds to the Beauty and impressive Nert of the service if the grand and Beautiful phrase ology of the sacred word be Given Forth by a tasteful Reader. Good Reading is often the Best commentary. The shades of thought can be expressed by the inflection and emphasis of a Reader that enters into the meaning and spirit of a passage with a clearness that no exposition would improve. When enunciated rightly Anil clothed with devout feeling what in so striking and so impressive As the words of the spirit t How inexcusably negligent Are most of pit How Little of the divine Force of Tho Bible is realised in this part of Public Wor and at the fireside where assembled children listen to the daily perusal of the Bible How its Soherr Unity and attractiveness would be enhanced if read clearly intelligently and Well. No one can read Well who does not read understandingly. The passage to be read at Church ought to be studied and its meaning and spirit clearly possessed. It would not then be an unmeaning service As it now too often a. Christian perfection. Religion is nothing else but the purify ing and refining nature by Grace the raising and exalt ing our faculties and capacities by Wisdom and virtue. Religious perfection therefore is Noth ing else than the moral accomplishment of human nature such a maturity of virtue As Man in this life is capable of conversation begins perfection consummate the habit of righteous Ness in the one religion is As it were in our infancy in the other in its strength and Man Hood so that perfection in Short is nothing else but a Ripe and settled habit of True holiness. According to this notion of religious perfection he is a perfect Man whose mind is pare and vigorous and Hia body and obsequious whose Faith is firm and steady his love ardent and exalted and his Hope full of Assurance whose religion has in it that ardency and con it ency and his soul that Tranquility and plea re which bespeaks him a child of the Light and of the Day a Partaker of the Dividu nature and raised above the corruption which is in the world through lust me crop Termi whim Nova the Sand dropped on Tjie Seal Shore the word you will not lost. Each will have its influence and be time shall be no More. Have you Ever thought of the effect that might be produced by a single word drop it pleasantly among a group and it will make a dozen Happy to return to their Homes to pro Duce the same effect on a Hundred perhaps. A bad word May arouse the indignation of a whole neighbourhood it May spread like wild fire to produce disastrous effects. As no word is lost be careful How you speak speak right speak kindly i the influence you May exert by a life of kindness by words dropped among the Ydung and the old is incalculable. It will not cease when your bodies lie in the dust but will be Felt wider and wider As years pass who then will not exert himself for the welfare of the millions thoughts for the Public. The world estimates men by their Success in life and by general consent is Evi Dence of superiority. Never under any circumstances assume a responsibility you can avoid consistently with your duty to yourself and others. Base All your actions upon a principle of right preserve your integrity of character and in do ing this never reckon cast. Remember that self interest is More Likely to Warp your judgment than All other circumstances combined therefore look Well to your duty when your interest is concerned. Your expenses be such As to leave a bal Ance in your pocket. Ready Money is a Good Friend in need. J keep Clear of Tho Law for when you Fain your Case you Are generally the loser of Money. Avoid borrowing and lending. Wine drinking and Cigar smoking Are bad habits. They impair the mind and pocket and Lead to a waste of time. Never relate your misfortunes and never Grieve Over what you cannot prevent. Napoleon said you Mutt not fight too often with one enemy or you will teach him All your Art of talk much with any Man of vigorous mind and we acquire very fast the habit of looking at things a the sane Light and on each occurrence we anticipate his thought. Emerson says men who know the same things Are n it Long the Best company for each other. But bring to each an intelligent person of another experience and it is As if you let off water from a Lake by cutting a lower a Man is a Centre for nature running out threads of relation through every thing fluid and solid material and elemental.
