Harry South . was one o those men who re=
veal only to their intimate friends a marked
peculiarity of character. There are many
such; all indeed may be re Ily so, for every
man f onv inc . es those who know him best that
ho pOssesses a true and fu I individuality; but
more,than any other of m acquaintance, my
friend managed,to' musk dreamy poetical
imagination and a glowi g heart under the
appearance of a mere fas iionable and high
spirted man of the world His wealth and
cen,neetions in society, of courad secured him
theposition of u gentleman. Nobody sus- 1
pelted him of being a poet: yet though he
never wrote lines, he alwitlyi3 thought poetry.
Between the ages of fifteen and twenty-three
he served in the navymidshipman and
lieutenant, and then left t e profession to suc
ceed to a valuable estate, nd consult his own
pleasure by travelling as gentleman at ease.
At Yerba Buena I first met him, and our
quaintance soon warmed into fri ends h i p, so
that 3ekfore many days pa s t, we found our
selves travelling together,on, a half hunting,•
half exploring expedition along the beautiful
Valley of the Sacramento. Every hour re
vealed some new-trait in his character. A
peculiar freshness, not of inexperience, but
the vivid glance that never dulls by often
looking, seeined to form ilia ideas upon every
subject, and made' especially delightful our
conversation upon the most delightful of all
topics, love and woman's' heart. Hithertd
untoched_by the gentle ptission; ho had set
up f r himself ad ideal mOdel,:not moulded, as
heas wont to exclaim, after any form of
ial clay, but one which rose within hi§
in dim yet lustrous beauty, like a trans
miSt before the dazzling sun. Such a
cter he conceived .O. be Miranda, in
Tempest," and looked upon it as a love
ion, never to be realized, yet ever before
with a delicious, tantalizing presence.—
d, so often did he rhapsodize upon Mi
, that before " two days had elapsed I be
heartily sick of my .friend's poetical
hobby, and sought every occasion to draw
him outon other things. In this way we ar
rived at the edge of that immense valley, and
ascended the loftiest mountain to catch a fair
view of the scenery around us.
"Yes," said Harry, "it would be too hard to
climb. You are ambitious, apd can never be
stationary; you must either move onward or ,
else keep out of sight. If I were disposed to
compliment, I might say, so is the sun: but
the dource oi light would be degraded by com
parion with a merely ambitious man. For
my own part, I would simply 'take the goods
the gods provide me,' and glide through a hap
py li fe , i in cultivating, not so much My 'pa
ternal acres,' for I confdes, myself no' farmer,
as My own heart. The little society I would
have must be associates, not rivals nor info
riorS. But you would struggle, and prefer
rising above the ignorant weak to _being sur
passed by the educated strong. This is your
country. The Californians are too indolent
to strive with an energetic man, and will qui
ed.)) allow him to ride over them, provided he
is nut rough shod. They have all the pride of
Spfniardi, half the quick intellect of Wench
me, and more than the terrible- revengeful_
ness of an Italian bravo. At this time, the
laz'est Turk that breathes through life in a
clod of smoke would open his eyes at these
n l i
lu ps of Californian clay, for ever asleep.—
Look from this mountain top, and say, are
they worthy of their country? The air, that
breathes delicioUs healilithrough others' vows
enervates them. These noble mottntatria,
that we love to climb with soul as- well' as
body, l only arouses in them a lazy horror of
the troublesome ascent, as they, stand below,-
dully gazing upward. But, by Heaven! there
is onebelow us who is not gazing upward hi
dullness! That attitude is entreaty and des
pair itself." . , . ,
I sprang to my feet and, looked over 'the
edge of the roount4n. Beginning at the spot
where we stood, an almost - perpendicular
precipice seemed tolide down full six` hun
dred feet, and then another peak rose aloft;'
leaving between huff, valley with al*ftfty
yards of looui rocke r garlanded With verdure.
At that moment II did not notice a rude hunt"
ing.lodge in the middle; my atteention was las
ened on two human beings in that remote place.
'One of them was very tall, gigantic, for- a
Californian, and his herculean limbs, [arrayed.
in theilunter's finery of his nation, bespoke
himit once a dangerous neighbor in time of
toed. At his feet in an attitude of exquisite
suffering, kneeled a young girl, lovely 'even
in the distance; and so truthful was her pos.
- ture, that we almost fancied we heard a plead
ing voice, broken with, sobs and tears'. Yet
the hunter stood savage and immovable, look.
ing contemptuously on her for a moment, and
then turning away, he walked swiftly out, of
ere on high,
dot my cell',—
"There is something here for us to do," said
Harry, firmly and rapidly. • His words roused
me frOm a gaze of wonder at that singular
pantomime, and hastily exchanging glances,
we seized our rifles, and descended the moun
ta in in silence.'
d tier true—
_ Spme hours passed before we could force
our way through the thick underwood down
the more gently sloping side, or skirt along
the base. if ven there was great difficulty in
searching tor the narrow gorge. At last,
however, we found ourselves near the cabin
of the hunter,. but our steps were delayed a
moment by a huge dog, the Cerberus of
these regions, which rushed upon us with a
howl that Sounded as if the triple headed mon
ster of old had opened with every throat at
once. Our business did not allow of stnch ob
stacles, and a shot from one of nur revolvers
stretched hint upon the grass. We entered
the, lodge. In one corner sat the fair suppli
ant we had seen before, hiding her face in her
hands, and moaning to herself, the most'
mournful of all Spanish exclamations:
de my! ah de my!" She had evidently mis
taken our shot for the return of the Californi
an hunter. Harry spoke a few words of en
couragement,.but at the sound of a strange
voice she started up with an instinctive scream
and then, to our utter amazement, clasped
each of us in her arms with a shower of tears
; and a broken cry of half hysteric joy.
We drew back at this strange reception,
but at - the next instant would have surrender
ed a yew!_ of our lives to have been in that
delicious embre again. Strange that we
did not feel it at the time, but when 'tile first
astonishment wore off; there lingered
idea of a sensation that we might have felt
and remembered to the day' of our delath.—
But the girl evidently did not intend to repent
the salutation. She stood wondering at her
rePtilse as much as we did afterward, but
'wfth - better reason. It was a common and
innocent token of friendship among the warm
open-hearted sex of her country; and she, poor
thing, saw a friend in every stranger at that
time. She seemed aboutseventeen;and 'her
form exhibited a rare mingling of grace and
voluptuons symmetry that I had before deem

s* the latter, but it is united with a spread
ing luxtnience of limb that forms a magnifi
cent contrast to the sylph-like airiness of
some other climes. Here, however, the two
were so connected that it seemed hard' to
know to which class of beauty she: belonged.
At this time,, indeed, no critical thought en
tered my head; I saw before me only the Cal
ifornian glancing her dark eyes on us in fear
ful hope, and wondered that I had ever thought
the phrase "billoiry boSom" an extravagant
expression. She came forward' again, and
taking a hand of each, pressed them
between her own, saying inquiringly, and
with inexpressible softness of tone; 'amigos?'
Then, without waiting for an answer, she
hurried On: Her father, she said; was at

We turned to go, and our eyes fell upon the
gigantic form of.tho hunter, terribly lacerated
and dripping blood, ati • he leaned against
1 the doorway for support. He appeared hard
ly able to stand; but the dull glassy look of
fainineas'in his eyes seemed to itirround a
fierce 'gleam 'of foiled malice. A fearful con
teat was going on between lis'aiounded body
I and the unconquered will,of 1 his soul. The
latter prevailed for a moment, asi , with an ac
tually blazing eye he rushed towards us, rais
ing aloft his Clubbed ' Me. ' Thi .blow was
easily warded off, and the lanceted deepen':
do fell. . .
„ , .
Never did I fully appreciae the womanly
loVeliness of Clare, holding the head of dying
Idaimioo to ber !freest, hntil I saw the young
CalifOrnian girl strive fa raise her'enemy and
stanch his wounds. We soon found that he
was nut dead; and havinkcarefully deposited
him upon' a rude couch, the perideiing ques
tion arose, "What is to be defier' He de
serves nothing at bur hands but death, 'yet hu
manity forbade n l s even tdletivi,him in that
dangerous condition." We therefore remain
edl there full fo r l days, while he was ' balan
cing between Ife and death.' The cause of
his wounds we ;mid not then enquire, though
they were evidently received
with some wild beast. During this time, I
acted us hunter and'purveyor Of food: the Cal-,
ifornian, of course, was the n u rse; and Harry,
equally of course, - elected hinisilf surgeon.
Prom what the hunter afterward said, it
appeared that he had wandered some distance
up the mountain. in search .of % wild sheep, or
"broad horns," and suddenly found himself in
close proximity to a grizzly hear; alMost the
only - animal which the bold western hunter
feats to meet. .It is nearly impossible for ono
to kill it; rifle balls bury themselves in its
body, and seem but to increase its 'ferocity.—
Knowing that the eye was the only part open
to -it mortal wound, he calmly waited until
the fierce monster -was just about 10 rush
upon him, and then fired with deliberate aim.
Vain hope' The bear moved a little at that
instant, and received the bullet in its[thick
skull. It was staggered at first, but instant
ly recovering itself, it seized the hunter in a
terrible embrace. Nothing but his ,calmness
of nerve saved him then. Torn and,breath
less as he was, while the monsters hot breath
was yet upon him, , and the foam ground from
those,frightful jaws flew into his face, he drew
the long slender dagger, worn by Californians
for a. hunting-knife, and applying it with
steady grasp to the eye, drovq it stiddenly, up
to the hail. The animal's struggle was short,
and the hunter arose, fearfully ntangled r hut
still aliv. lie tottered back as well as he
could, ant] arrived only to find new enemies
in his owl home. i , .
At the end of four days, the question,
"What -Shall we do?" was as perplexing as
ever. The hunter was' fast recovering: too
fast indeed for our own wishes, fur we could
not expeat hint tea:44lly to relinquish lila
prize; and it was accordingly determined by
the council of peace to leave him secretly, af
ter placing within his reach provisions enough
to last him sdvkal days. The next morning
saw us five leagues distant. ; :
Duringkhe journey, I had few opportunities
of learning the character of our fair compan
ion. She was mounted upon the'sante mus
tang Mild] had carried her before, and Hai
ry,,walking by her side, kept up incessantly
a low-toned - conversation, so that 1 took the
hint and led the way. At the close of the
first day we bivouacked in true hunting style,
and makidg up a hasty couch for the Califor
nian ;girl; laid ourselves upon the soft moss
in silence. -I was just falling into a gentle
doze, when a single word from my friend Woke
"That you hare found your tongue at last?
"Why, I never thought to ask her name."
"Perhaps I can inform you."
"You! ' how did ydu learn it? What is it?
exclaimed he, eagerly rising.
"What can it - be, but- I —Miranda?" said I
"No more of that, IIal!" he replied with a
manly blush. " "But yet," added - he, more
earnestly, "she is Miranda in truth. In a fevi
words, she unveils her whole soul: So inno
cent, so child like, and yet so womanly. I
could say to her with Ferdinand:

Her beauty and distress more than interes

not confess it?—our conversation has showed
me a fresh, noble soul, and has actually—not
as I-was about to say, made a fool of me, but
a wiser and happier man."
"Happier! I may, congratulate you, then:—

afternoon we left the valley and ascended the
