Eh blco, you will assume that character for

now we are en rapport,: we must ,go back a
dozen years or so. into the past. We are ap
proaching a country village—we at the pret
tiest cottage it contains—we enter the bloom
ing garden—we hear a low murmur of voids
in that summer-honse—we draw near, and
nearer through the clustering vines.
"Ho, what a superb girl! rather youngish

the girl's dark eyes are glistening with tears.
Let us catch a glimpse of the title—" Paul
and Virginia!" "
The town of It-, in the interior of
Massachusetts; has one of the
sonages in the world. Ido notbelieve it can
be surpassed by anything short of some of
those lovely English rectories, about which
our travtlerii go into exstacies It is nested
in foliage and flowers, and hung-about with a
perfect drapery of vines. At the same time
we have talin for the commencement of our
sketch, it was occupied by d family of rare
taste and refinement, consisting of the Rev',
Charles Grey, a man of great learning and
devoted piety; his wife, ati excellent and
lovely woman, and her niece, a beautiful girl
of sxteen, but for whom the cottage home
wo i have been Comparatively desolate, for
the Greys were childless.
Madeline Temple was the sole and orphan
daughter of the only brother of Mrs. Grey,
and was an heiress. Mrs. Grey, who had re
ceived a highly'finished education in her. na
tive city, Boston, was herself Madeline's
teacher in all feminine accomplishments,
while her husband attended to the "classics."
I have said that Madeline was beautiful; but
her beauty was of a peculiar type.. It was
not n'aractive—it was too proud and spirited
for 4,at except to the few who loved her and
whom she loved. Iler presence, even at that
' early period, was imposing; tall, fair and se
rene, she walked, rode, danced and conversed
with the quietest dignity and most exquisite
grace—a child in years, but an elegant wo
man is her ways': One powerful and pre
. demintNing trait ruled and moulded her entire
character—and this was pride, lofty, unYield:
ing, uncomprotriising pride. And yet was
Madeline Temple in heart most womanly—
true and rearm in her affections, even to: pas
sionateness, yet carefully concealing all un
der-a-manner cold,- and at times forbidding.
- But when she smiled—ah, when she smiled,
everything princess-like and chilling, every
thing which kept one from loving her, 9nish
ed in an instant, and Madeline was bewitch
ing. •
There was one who, though not a member
of the minister's family, had .been from his
childhood a constant visitor. This was Ed=
ward Lawrence; the, eldest son_ of a small far
mer, living just out of the village. Mr. Grey,
with whom Edward was a great favorite, had
had the solo charge of his education, having
undertaken to make tip for the young man's,
want of a collegiate course and after Madelines
arrival, the two pupils had pursued their stud
ies together. Lawren ce
4 Was handsome,
strikingly so, but otherwise he was only dis
tinguished. for a modesty anddelicato sensi
tiveness almost feminine.- At the time whon
we introduced him to our readers, he had
reached his twentieth year, and yet went ,his
way, utterly and strangely unconscious that
he was one to be gazed after, envied, and
loved adolingly.
But there was one who felt that there was
a double fascination in:bis unconsciousness—
and this was Madeline Temple. Ere, she her
self in her proud unimpressiveness, guessed
such a thing, her !whist was irrecoverably his.
Slowly, but warmly hind rosily, stole the Morn
rise of love up the tWillght sky of a lift. be
fore all cold 'and colchrless.
And Edward—from the first year spent in
bladfline's society, he had loved with more of
intense passionateness thitn, she was capable
of, and with the deepest and tenderest devo
tion. But years passed by, and he sought no
return. Madeline was rich, and he, though
not altogether portionless, was no match for
her on the'score of wealth; and a morbid feat
of the cha i
his natural
lips. ' Da

At length, when Madeline was just eigh
teen, her relatives _in Boston, a family of
wealth and high standing; became desirous of
having her with them, in order to introduce
her to fashionable society. Madeline was in
love, but ladeline was a woman, and the
brilliant lie thus opening before her, had its
fas'cinations: she was also very much inclin
ed to test in that way the strength of the pas
sion which had been engrossing her heart and
thoughts t so long a period.
The las night of Madeline's stay had ar
rived and dward was at the piirsonage -to
take leave: It was a summer's evening, and
when he rOse to depart, Madeline, 'Allis lib
quest, strolled with him toward the gate, as
she had often done. rWhen they reached the
termination of the walk, she paused and held
out her band as usual. -She was very pale
with her proud head thrown back,
gal composure, - she said fare Well
whose love she prized in her in
above all the triumphs and gaities

dear little maiden could have wept
at parting iwith the firs love of her heart.
The year that followed her return to Bos
ton, was indeed a brilliant one . for Madeline
Temple. With accomplishments,beauty of
a rare order and a fortune, it was a little woo
derl that immediately on her debut, she had be
come the rage. The history of some of the
triumphs of her belle-hood even reached her
old friend 'in their quiet, rural retreat, and
greatly were the 'chastened hearts of the good
clergymar rind his' wife troubled because of
the,temptatiens which must beset the pat li-
Wily of the inexperienced girl. But if they
feared lest Madeline should sufTer• from the
unworthy and Mercenary, through her alien
tions they, little knew her:
,One only love,
hidden an striven against, 'yet living 'and un
conquered was as an angel guarding'the por
tals of her, heart, and she was safe:
During I the first summer of Madeline's ab
,ccnce, Eirl4ralici lArat"mrerre , e for.trhi., fatfActic cool
found himself regarded as the head of a fam
ily you6or brothers and sisters. - What
with sea& for the dead and care for the liv
ing,,he found no time to indulge his love with
the passionate fervor and wild abandonment of
ro.nantic lovers in general; but he was nev
ertheless t i nily constant to her whose lightest
word with once sound the lowest depths of
-his soul, and whose smile had been the sun
shine of his life. She was not always in his
thoughts,:but she ever glided to his side when
Sweet evening was bestowing her Fort (levee
Upon the earth, and shutting up the flowers
With he moat tingere, fur the sleeping hours."
And whoa the night stole on—
her eye, looked on t him with the stars—"her
face was bit . his sleep."
Madeline had been
,gehe a twelvemonth
from when mercantile husinesr., in
which.he was engaged, called Lawrence to
Boston. the there became known to a dis-
taut relative and former friend of his father's,
a wealthy merckant ti%d imp rter. This
gentleman took a lively interest • 'n the hand
some'and'enterprising young man, and with
his wife nd daughters, Rpeedily introduded
him to 'the most aristocratie, circles of the
"Athens,Of America," and there he again met
Madeline ] —met her as the triumphant belle,
followed, I .flattered and. adored.
"Ali, then was the spell broken—then did
the dreatr vanish!" anticipates my reader.—
But no; after all tliat is said, few men- have
any decided objedtion to seeing the woman
they lovd the fashion;—it is an agreeable
voucher fur their individual taste, and as for
Lawrence, he found himself more irreclaima
bly in lov than ever. Yet still his intense
pride, his r
shrinking fear of the charge of un- ,
worthy and sordid motives, kept him from an
