Now this is a very good character for a
man to bear, on some accounts, for it gets
one the rep l utation of a good-natured fellow;
and as the world commonly pretends to have
a high ofdri t ion of a good-natoredlellow, and
according to the
,proverb, "opinion is the
spleen of the world,"• the reader may think
Paul must have had'a happy time of it. No
such thing. pours good nature brought him
into more embarrassments and vexatious than
if he had beeff the crossest cur that ever
snarled. I speak nut of lending umbi•ellas—
'tis the lot of thortility. ~ To tend ,money - is
about the Sameohough money lometimes
does come back. ' But who would belie% : e
that a good-natured man, merely by reason of
his being a good-natured man, and for no oth
er fault under the sum could be led through
such a rigmarole dance of adventure, by the
perverseness of fortune, that he fought a duel
and almost married a - widow!
Ths Widow Wilful was a lady Ofta certain
age; she made the best of time, and time re-
turned the compliment. She had shed many
tears for the loss of her man—so she pr. St
ed, and I cannot help thinking she spoke the
truth, for she tried very hard to get another.
I.llV.everithis did not, prove so easy a matter,
for althoughthe widow was not without
charms, the men were shy. ' What could be
the reason? She gave splendid parties, and
bad sparks and danglers without number, but
it was never a match. What! could be the
reason? the reader will ask again.
It isnot elactly my ttusiness to tell, as the
story will be plain enough, without it; *and if
the reader cannot'guess, it would not much
help him to let out the whole mystery.
"This is truly delightful," said Paul, one
evening to the widow, as he leaned his , arm
over the back of the chair, worked his face up,
to the blandest of all his acquiescent smiles,
and essayed some flattering complement
concerning the widow's fine entertainment,—
"This is delightful; so much hilarity ! and
I •
cheerfulness—so many happy faces—l love' to
look on them:"
Paul inadvertently raised his eyes as: he
uttered these words, and at the close of the
speech was looking straight into the widonfts,
face. He meant, not the 'eclat, harm in the
world; but the widow pretended to blush. She
pursed up her pretty Mouth—
"Oh, Mr. Pliant, you're a great fingerer;
but we know you are honest. You never sriy
brie thing anti mean another."
"Certainly, by all means, my dear 'mad-.
"But really Mr. Pliant, my dear sir, wli
a gentleman tellsla lady Ihe loves to lOok on,
her you know that is really significant." •
"Oh, yes, certainly, you are quit.; right,
“Well, you ( are frank, Mr; IPliantt and I
shall certainly give you credit for sincerity.
Anotherman might say ten times as much
and 1 never think of regarding it; but I know
I can rely upon the word of so honorable a
gentleman as Mr. Paul Pliant.”
"Rely upon my word! surely you may, Mrs.
Wilful, I should be sorry if—"
"Oh, don''t mention it, my dear sir. .J'
never doubted•it for'a moment; certainly you
'never would have hinted anything like at
taeltment, unless you had been:sinFere." .
"Certainly, ma'am," replied: Pail, in great
amazement, with the conjecttirei, howille had
been so unlucky as to say ' Mor than he
meanr; for Paul would as-;smin.lia .e thought
of jumping off a steeple, as of telling WidoW
Wilful . he felt an attachment fur /4 - rf r "Cer=
tainly, by all means," he continued to repeat;
mechanically, "oli,,yes; certainly,",
"Pray Mr. Pliant, be so good tie .to hand
me a glass of water; really the room -is so
warm—just reach Your hand." ,
"Certainly, madam; my hand is entirely at
your Service." Paul was in such a flutter
that Ile was not aware what he' was uttering
until the words were past recall. ' "Bless me!
what have I said," thought he to himself.—
But it was too late.
. i
"Oh, Mr. Pliant!" said she, blushing up to
her ears, "you are tbo generous. - I mean youH
are almost too precipitate. Now, were it any
other man, I should suspect him of trifling.—
But'such a man as Mr. Pliant!"
"Confound the jade!" quoth Paul, to hint
self, "how shall I get out of . this scrape? I
hope she isn't going to faint. Mrs. Wilful,
madam, \ you know I say a thousand things of
Oh.? sort. .I can't help it you know:" '
"That's just what I always supposed, Mr.
Pliant; a man of your sincerity and frank
neis can't help uttering his true. sentiments.
Mr. Pliant, you are an hone-b2l*,hings!.,
"Now this is too bad," tliought Paul, in
great tribulation. "What shall I
deat.::rnadarn, I certainly wish to be honest.—
Compliments, you know, are compliments ;
but when • a man means nothing, you,
k no w—"
"Certainly, Mr; Pliant, you are quite right. f
When a an Means nothing, lie should say s

turned Tom, in a tone as if he Only said it to
comfort his friend Paul. It was a gresi deal
worse than if he had +said nothing at all; • but
probably this was just the thhig'he meant .
"Thank ye," said Paul, with an air of dol
orous resignation.
Here they were interrupted by the entrance
of Colonel Strut. More friendly congratula
tion 4 I suppose, thought Paul to himself, iri
heroic resignation. •
"I -believe I have the honor to address Mr.

stately port, and in double common time, up
to Paul, and planting him4elt bolt upright be

"At your service, entire

the Colonel; making halls bow, and screwing
up his martial features' into an apology for a
civil smile, "is to marry the Widow ‘Vlilfull"
"Oh, yes; certainly-,-that is—so they say."
_4.T.lten, sir, I have only to say," s4id the
Colonel, lifting himself up as high as possible,
and twisting his fore-finger into one of his
formidable black whiskers., "that considering
myself supplanted, beguiled, and circumvent

me such satisfaction, as the laws of honor re
"Certainly, sir, with great pleasure]"" repli
ed Paul.
"Them sir, I shall desire the pleasure' of
your company on the other side of the State
line," returned the Colonel, in the quickest
tone phssible. "Pistols, I suppose, would be
.your preferences'
"Pistols!" said Paul, in a tane which he
meant for an ejaculation of surprise.
"Very said . the Colonel, without
lug him :time for further explanation, "here
are the terms of meeting, which I trust you
will find perfectly agreeable." !So saying, he .
I d)
handed a paper to Paul, whit received it, and
ran' it over with his eyes, without having self
possession enough to gather the meaning of a
particle of its .Ctntents.'
"Perfectly agreeable, certainly," said Paid,

"Am It" said Paul, "then heaven be prais
ed, there is spll hope left; for if I am shot to
death,l shall escape marrying the widow."
When Paul arrived at the field of action on
the evetiffurday, he found his spirits a great
deal : firmer than he expected, 1p fact, he felt
inspired by the greatness of the ( ;:ccasion, and
:Very naturally, for when a man k ows,he must

he was 'satisfied, and they shomt - irxrds, there
by showing that Paid Pliant, by shooting'
three times in' the face of the blessed sun, had
proved that he "t:ever supplanted, beguiled

for so it is lid down in the "code of honor."
I; seemedinow to be- all over with Paul.—
"I must be married, then," said he-to himself
—"killing won't save me." The day w as fix
ed, and, his fate seemed inevitable. The nsar
er it approached, the less he felt resigned to
it. The day 'before We wedding, Paul met
Dr. Dindeintight, the worthy parson who wds
to join him and his bonny bride.
"Doctor," said Paul, "how Mall I escape?"
"Marriage." slid the Doctoi, in his Most
solemn argumenttive way, "is considered by
all authorities, edclesiastical, pOlitical, ethi
cal, legal, and judicial, as a bond or covenant
entered into by the mutual consent and agree

There was such a turn out among the ladies'
the next day! I wish I had peen there to \ see
it: Trinity was thronged, for everyhAv

Widow Wilful comprised nearly the a hol l e of
