T i it thus spoke Derwent one of whose Affe Cia Lions was to seem worse than he waa. That evening accordingly saw Der went numbered among the acquaintance of the Belle of the season. She received him graciously for in addition to a remarkably Fine person he had an air of High Breeding his countenance carried Assurance of the owner being something More in both intellect and heart than the Ephe Meral men of fashion around him. Indeed Der went possessed unusual ability improved Book study and travel. He talked to miss Stan Hope of England and its lordly Demesne of Paris and its boulevards of Germany and the Rhine of Italy and. Its priceless works of of Greece and its temples even in decay the wonder of the Spectator and of Egypt the Parent of All with its venerable Nile its Luxor its White and its pyramids which though they have braved three thousand years seem As it they will yet in the minds of the Awe struck arabs conquer time itself. Nor did he con Fine himself merely to these monuments of the past. He spoke of the manners the religion and the social condition of the nations he had travelled Limong trom the starving operatives of England to the free bedouin of the desert. This style of conversation so different from the empty Small talk and insensate flattery with which her ears were usually greeted arrested the Atten Tion of miss Stanhope for being of a cultivated mind herself she appreciated what he said but Felt it As a compliment to talked to thus. In a word Derwent managed to Monopo Lise her that evening and when the hour of retiring came neither imagined it was half so late. And so you were engrossed the Beauty the whole of last said Harry As the friends sauntered to the billiard room the lowing morning. You had other listeners however than. Miss Stanhope and let me Whis per to you confidentially have made quite a Conquest in certain Quarter. Miss Arnolt her self it seems heard you describe your presenta Tion at St. Jam Sand was so charmed with your account of the Queen that she asked to introduced to you a favor never bestowed on any gentleman i forgot All about miss Arnott last replied Derwent. How does she Ivok she a woman of for How replied Harry Here she con is with Stanhope you see her now a figure with a face that might pretty if it had a bit of expression. There that Slouchy awkward figure is Worth just Twenty thousand a year while the one beside it All Grace Beauty and vivacity has not a cent i sacrifice. After a sleepless night he arose re solved to seek miss Stanhope to offer his hand when on opening a letter that had been event ii to his room marked in he read the astounding intelligence that the Bank in which most of his Fortune was invested had stopped payment and to was now comparatively a beg those who have never experienced the Sud Den loss of wealth and who have never found themselves reduced As it were in an hour from a competence to poverty know nothing what Derwent suffered. For awhile he even forgot his love he read and re read his letter but there was no mistake in the fact he rang for the Public papers the announcement of the Bank s failure was there too. He paced his chamber How Long he knew not until at last the door was thrown violently open and Harry entered. What in Haven s name is the cried his Friend. Have your engagement to ride with me this morning 1 i waited till past the hour and then came up and knocked at your door you gave me no answer though i. Heard you walking about like a mad lion in his Cage j so i made bold to enter Viet armis As a plea of trespass says. Now Don t look As if you would eat but Tell me what s the Derwent had indeed glared at Henry like an enraged wild beast when the latter entered. He did not wish to interrupted much less his mercurial companion but while Harry was speaking he reflected How ridiculous anger would and hence when the latter ceased he advanced to the table which Harry stood and pushed the open letter which contained the news of his ruin to the intruder. Cried Harry when he had perused it How unfortunate i taif the failure of the Bank in the papers but did not know you owned any of the rascally Stock. How came it my dear fellow i always invest in mortgages or ground it was left there my guardians and since i came of age i have been abroad. I intended to change the investment but left the business with other thing1, til fall intending to Here All summer. And what is worse it is my entire Fortune except about five thousand dollars. When he had concluded they were at the end of the Street on the wild Bleak common. Not until he had told his tale and a minute or two of silence had followed did Derwent venture even to look at Hia companion. But on doing so he found she was scarcely less agitated than himself she trembled visibly and when As soon happened she turned to answer him traces of were on her Cheeks. Or. She said i will Frank with you for in these matters perfect Frank Neu is to suitor s right. I will not Bay that this As cd Aratin of passion surprises me for in spite of my having heard that you were insincere i thought i saw in you a real esteem for me. It would affectation in me to deny this. That i am shocked at your Losa of Fortune i need not say i feel too great an interest in you to do otherwise and this interest i am not unwilling you see openly to she looked at him with such Noble frankness that Derwent enraptured so unexpected and avowal could scarcely refrain from snatching hey her carrying it to his lips. But he thought of who Public common and then he thought also of his poverty and How Idle All whims and Moties. A fre Cuman studying English. Frencht Nan a my Good Friend i Haw met with one grand oni Yery Bridge word. Ift you Call to us a i tres Bien Hunt and snuff you spells no us a a .5 of no snuffs in a double f.

J it was a Lovely morning for walking. A Shower the preceding evening had Laid the Duel the Sun shone without a Cloud and a Cool Breeze Laden with Saline freshness from the sea blew pleasantly past. The ladies were executing a that Folly to marry on three Hundred a year would lunacy itself miss Arnott will have you if you speak Quick so cheer up it is always darkest just before the looked at his Friend sternly and was about to characterize the proceeding Harry advice As villainy but he said nothing Only mournfully shaking his head. Pshaw said Harry what foolish notions have come Over you 1 a Man Derwent. I wish to heaven miss Arnott would Only have Long cherished determination to visit the Cliss me i like to talk to her companion Well on foot an j the two Young men solicited leave enough and its pleasant too to dance with this he remained motionless and silent.

In a worldly View because you Are a penniless she said smiling it is a very Good match for the companion of a Rich amazement at this Noble conduct had kept Derw ent Bill snot until now but he could no longer remain quiet.

A let Roe not forget. To us his Ruff to us his Buff a tis ver simple language but i have had what you Calle no no a a what you Call him a t ready wit. Bartholomew Willard called for Short was a queer once very Well known in the North of Vermont for his careless Vagabond habits ready wit and remarkable facility at extempore rhyming. Sitting one Day in a Village store among a crowd of idlers who gathered about Hikiji on his arrival the merchant Vul iia list shall contented will what you would think a asked Barty he always wore that Shock us own p Osic Crof Han a of Konnel and with however St to to this min Stanhope flirt with her like to accompany them. In a few a routes Derwent had grown heartily tired of his companion. Was he thought the most insipid creature he bad Ever met. Yet to do miss Arnott Justice she was quite As interesting As most fashionably cd caled Young ladies but then Derwent could not help contrasting her with. Miss Stanhope whose playful wit Strong sense and Rich stores of Reading rendered the penniless companion As fascinating As. The heiress was Dull. He was Laci when the Cliffs being reached his Tele a Tele was broken up. He had secretly resolved to revenged on Harry and according luring miss Stanhope off to look at the sea from a new Wint he set out on his return without going Jack for Harry and miss Arnott contenting a self with waving his hat for them to follow., if miss Stanhope detected his Little lie was not displeased with it and the walk Jack to the hotel comprised an hour of sweetest enjoyment to Derwent. Though the Beauty of miss Stanhope had first attracted his attention it was the qualities of her mind that now fascinated him yet we will not deny that what she said received additional interest failing from such Lovely lips. In Short from that morning Derwent became the constant Cavalier of miss Stanhope and this notwithstanding the marked efforts miss Arnott made to attract him to herself. At last the partial Ity of the heiress became so Strong that she frowned openly on her companion whenever she saw Derwent and miss Stanhope finally the latter from some cause avoided his attentions and left the Field open to her More fortunate rival. Whether however this was the result of miss Arnott s direct interference or whether miss Stanhope herself begun to think Derwent Only trifling with her our hero had no Means of Dis covering. For three or four Days he bore the avoidance of his mistress with comparative patience but when he found that she persisted in it and was apparently not governed any whim he became almost mad with jealousy and despair. For the first time in his life he was really in love. He no longer thought of the comparative moderation in which he would have to live., if he married a woman without Fortune on jus part he now willing to make any such a Beautiful creature but egad my two Tjio Saud a year would not go far towards sup porting a i will a replied Derwent with sudden Energy. I will not yield to this blow. There Harry Good Bye for the will join you in an when the door had closed on his Friend Der went yes will a Man. All thoughts of miss Stanhope must now dismissed the most delightful dream of my life is Over. I must hereafter toil for my very bread. Well let the storm can breast in this half defiant half despairing mood he concluded his Toilette and went Down stairs. His first visit was to the he announced his intention of leaving Early the next morn ing. He said i must pull the oar the sooner i begin the he hesitated whether to seek miss Stanhope and Tell or leave without explanation. I will Jat last he said. She will hear of the cause of my departure enough and even if she had thought of me will Hen bless her Good Fortune which preserved her from marrying a he had scarcely arrived at this conclusion however when he met miss Stanhope face to free. He had been sauntering up the Street his hands folded behind him his whole air listless and dejected. He was taken sur prise bowed to her with embarrassment and then after she had passed remembering that she looked amazed at his manner he turned about and joined her mechanically. He scarcely knew Why he went and when he bad done it he was More embarrassed than Ever. Miss Stanhope was the first to speak. Are you ill or. She in a voice of you Jook the Lone of kindness in which these words were spoken opened the flood Gates of his heart and he could not resist the impulse to Tell her How much he had loved her and How he should cherish her memory though Fate had placed an insurmountable Barrier Between them. His words flowed in a torrent of burning eloquence. Unconsciously he and miss Stanhope walked on though they had Long passed the hotel and very Humble Home. The moment Ujj therefore that you can give me one in which you would willing to Livo yourself that moment i will become your wife. But she added archly i am flesh and blood after All and can not live merely on love. I with that Confidence which my affection inspires to wait for you and believe you will never seek Meu Tilyou can support me but that will not Long hence if i judge your talents and now never she earnestly doubt again a woman s single hearted Ness in Derwent wins equally bewildered and trans ported. In Hia wildest dreams lie had never imagined miss Stanhope As Noble and generous As he now found her. Be told her As much. You flatter me More than i she replied. Life in All circumstances is a season of trial wealth cannot secure immunity from trouble and perhaps the happiest after All Are those who labor for their daily bread because their toil sweetens the meal. Nay i am euro i shall love you More because i shall think you More Derwent parted from miss Stanhope a differ ent Man from what he had the interview. It was not the knowledge of her love merely which had worked the change on him but it was the discovery that he Hud thought the human heart More selfish than it is that he had doubted the existence of a generous affection. They parted that evening. Miss Stanhope though she pledged herself to Derwent stipulated that he should not accompany her to the but that he should at once begin the practice of his profession. You May write to. She said playfully and i will answer and we shall then see from the punctuality of the answers which loves the most. Next year i shall probably come North again with my Cousin and assured i will let you know of my arrival the instant we Ara established at the hotel in new York. Derwent had now an object for which to struggle and nobly did he labor for the great end lie had in View. The full and Winter he devoted to assiduous study taking no relaxation except what was necessary for health visiting nowhere his sole Solace being a weekly letter to miss Stanhope. Her replies still breathed unabated affection High As was the estimate he had placed on her abilities they fell Short of the reality As he discovered this correspondence and proud was he that such a woman was some. Day to his wife. Nor did that Day appear far Distant. His knowledge of european language brought him several foreign clients whom other lawyers were unable to Converse with and one of these clients placed a Case in his hands which he which from the Large claim at As Well As from the abstruse Points of Law involved brought him much reputation. His business increased so fast that he wrote to miss Stan Hope. Congratulate me i have gained the first move in the game and am now considered a hard working lawyer i am already Able to offer you a Home but let wait another year that to May Magazine. Ing bad Barty replied that it was simply because he was unable to Purchase a new one. Said the merchant make me a Good rhyme on the old hat stopping to my give you the Best Castor in the store. Whereupon Barty threw his old tile of the floor and there my old hot.

Choosing to assume the killing to have been intentional sued Vamp they were in due time called into court when the defendant in the Case was asked the judge whether he killed the dog. Be sure i Kilt Eaid Vamp but. Let Bones prove it.1. This being quite satisfactory the in the action was called on to ans wer a few questions and among others he was asked the judge at he estimated the damages. He did not Well understand the question and so to a ittle plainer the judge inquired what he thought the dog to Worth replied Bones the dog was Worth nothing but since was so mean As to kill him he shall pay the full value of suits have occupied the attention of courts How Many contests have engaged the time of the Public and have waged with virulence Anu invective having no More worthy difference thin of Van Vamp and Van from 1he Walls Tori Juter Tutor. The Plank Road. Or. I suppose Are generally aware that at the legislative session of 1848, a Bill was passed Sulho Riz Irig the governor upon the subscription.

The com missioners were directed to open books for subscription on or before the first of july then following. This however was neglected and the tax of ten dollars due the Commonwealth to pay for the enrolment of the Bill was not paid. No Steps in fact during the season of 1848 were taken in the matter. Late in but during the session of 1849-the legislature passed an act adding new to those named in the Hill of the time of opening the postponing Tho time of commencing and of completing the Road.
