The last Adienture of a Coquette.
BY Tucimas maArZTE ARID. -
A more capricious coque4e than the beau
tiful Kate Crossley never played with hapless
hearts. She is now a sober matron, the wife
,of an elegant husband, and mother of two
beautiful children. We hate to rake up the
ashes of bitter remembrances; (for believe us,
gentle reader, this story, though short, is hey
crib° tad true; and we know one young gentle
man at least who will recognize the unlit",
py hero of it.) But we cannot pass over in
silence the last episode in the unmarried life )
of Kate. It May be a wurning-tn.futorp,
ocrtkind luaianCr
of that utter heartlesaeas which a beautiful
flirt can alone feel.
• Kate was en heiress, that is, a moderate
fortune of two hundred thousand had been ac,
cumulated expressly foi her use—..for she :was
an only child. She had a much larger ford
tune, however, in her fuce; and that evening
never passel, that threshold of her Pfath! l
er's cumfortab:e I:welling; was not crossed by
half a score of elegant beaux, all bloods, an
some of them Men of fortune. Kate amuse
herself by making these young gentlemeq
;lesions. A beautiful flirt', whe;can command
even the smell sum of two hundred tliousatu
dollars, is a dangerous creature in the commui
I nity of Philadelphia; •and already, on Kam
Crossley'a acount, had two parties of the afore I f ,
said young gentlemen crossed over to Camden
with sanguinary intentions.- Fortsinately,
however, we have tqe most vigilant police in
,the world, and a mayor whose instinct is so
keen, that it has been known to forewarn him
of the timerand place of a duel, the arrange : -
monist( which-had been kept religiously se 7
cret froth all but the 'principals and their sec ,

By such an effort of genius on the part a
our worthy mayor, had the chivalrous lover
of our heroine been spare l the pain of blood
letting, and having purchased the pleasin ! .
reputation ofeoumge, they were bound over
and thus procured the sweet privilege o
frowning at ace other hereafter without
necessity of fighting for it.
Matters were progressing thus; lovers wer •
alternate sighing, and sm il ing, , and scowling
when the elegant Augustus Nob returnee
from his.Europenu tour, bringing with - him
of course, a foreign mustache, and a decided
ly foreign accent; Nob wasan only son of on=
of the first families. He had been leftan inde

opposition on the part gabs elegant' hires&
Not only woulil the two-hundred thousan;
have been particularly acceptable at that
lime, but the heart of the young gentleman,'
or in other words his vanity, had become
greatly excited, and he felt much 4ispoved,to
carry off' the coquette in triumph, in spite of
the agony and disappointment of at least a
score of competitors.
But•where is our heroine Kate, all this time?
Flirting of course, with a dozen beaux, each
at one moment thinking himself most favbred
and the next spurned aid despairing. Now
she 'smiles upon Mr. Fitzrush, and compli
ments him upon the smallness of his foot,—
Fitz blusher's, simpers, and appears not at all
vain of his feet—in fact, stammers out ; that
they are "large, very. large, indeed;" to
which candid acknowledgeinent on his part.
should the company appear to assent, he care
lessly adds that "they are small for a man of
his size," insinuating that it is nothing out of
the way to find small men with. little feet;
and little' credit sheuld therefore be attached;
but when a man of large dimensions is found
with elegant little feet• like hi;, the credit
ought to be quadrupled or tripled at least.
Kate, the talented Kate, understands it all;
and after smiling quietly at the gentleman's
silliness, she turns her satire upon another
am the Lot:juin'
or. poetly. rod caps of th e banal
“Ah! my dear Mr. Cressy, how your eyes
sparkletclast night at the Opera—they looked
like a basilisk's.”
This gentleman's eyes were of a very du II
green color, and looked more like a cat's than
a basilisk's. but not "seeing them as otheis ,
saw them," he replied' that "he could not help
it—the mus'c always excited him io."
the musk, Mr. - Cressy; but per
She was prevented from finighing her reply
by the announcement of a gentleman who had
just,made his appearance in the doorway, and
why was no less a personage than the elegant
Augustus Bob.
; To say that Mr. Augustus Nob was a
small fish in this party, would be to speak
what was hot true; on the other hand, he was
a big fishinfact the biggest in the kettle.
Any one who had witnessed the sensation
produced by his announcement would have
judged so. The coquette broke off in the
middle,of her satire, and running toward the
door, conducted him to the seat nearest to her
own, where, after an elegant bow, he seated
himself—a full grown lion. Dy i ing the con
tinuance of this welcome re r ion, various
pantominic gestures were exhibited by differ
ent members of the company. There was a
'general uneasy shifting of chairs-..darlHooks
were shot itoward the "elegant," and concilia
tory and even friendly glanbea were exuhang
moment their mutual jealousies, concentrated
their united'envy upon'their common rival.—
If Cressy's eyes never .sparkled before, they
certainly did upon this occasion; and the
right leg of Fitzrush was flung violently over
the Ifft knee, where it continued to oscillate
with an occasional nervous twitching of the
toes, expressive of a hardly repressed desire
on the part of its owner to try the force of
those little feet on the favored "elegant's"
handsome person. It was all in vain, howev
er, Nob was evidently the successful lover,
fur he sat closer than any other and chatted
tilt her of balls and operas; and, confident of
his position, he did nut care a fig for the envy
and jealousy which on all sides surrounded
And Kate showered all e,r attentions upon
Nob, and Nob triumphed o ( ver his rivals.
Matters progressed thus for several weeki,
Nub still paying marked attentions to the co
quette, whose chief)de4ht seemed to be, not
only to torment her host of lovers, but occa
sionally the "elegant" himself. •
Augustus, however, still continued first in
favor, and from the attentions which he re
ceived at the hands of Mrs. Crossley, it was
conjectured by the family friends that a mar
,riage with her daughter was not far distant.
The less aspiring of Kate's former lovers had
hung since "hauled their wind," and only a
few, among whom were Fitzrush and Cressy,.
"till continued to hang on despairingly to what
`Was evidently a forlorn hope.'
Nob openly boasted that be had run them all
out of the field, and was heard triumphantly to
assert that ho was breaking the heart of the
"deaw creatuw," and that he "would be under
the positive necessity, of healing .:

Those who have ever' made .a voyage to

has ,to cat and sleep on deck. In iinetpf these .
moneyed crowds there is much to teach the
mind, rare losons of ht man nature. Here
may be found the favored son of affluence, "to
