In tgo coach-otlice . at Ceraay et.. two young
men who had just taken their places t for Kapser
berg. They were of the same age-feach about
four-and-twenty; but there were rentaikable differ
ences in their physiognomy and general appearance..
The shortet of the two was dark, pale, Wad quick in
his movements, and of an impatient vivitcity of man•
net which betrayed, at a first glance, ibis southern
origin. His companion, on the contrOry, tall, fair
and ruddy,' was a perfect type of that nixed
tian race, in Which French expantivenSas is happily
blended with German good humor. OP the ground
at their feet were two small portmaiteatti,. upon
which cards of adlrese were fastened' !with sealing
wax. Oa one of these card. was ineciribed
Hanar Foarin. Mahellle . 4;
and at its four eorneri a seal bad impressed upon
the wax the motto "Mon Droit."
On the other card was written: 1
'askant Mu uutx, St rasbert ;
and the motto of the scat was i "Caritad.";
The office keeper had entered their homes in his
book, and added the word; uwith the two portman
teaus," when Henry demanded that ih6e should be
weighed. They would be weighed at Kaysererg,
the office keeper replied. The young; man. said it
would be iaconveoieut to be delayed by that forint
ity at the moment of their arrival. hisses hil right,
he maintained, to hare them weighed It once. The
office-keeper, thus bari s presee,l, grew obstinate in
his turn. In rain did Joseph interfere, and remind
Henry that they had bast , time to dine Wore de
parture. In virtue of his motto, ,the . Marseilles.
never gave way when he thought he was right; and
he always thought that. At last the office-keeper,
weary of the dispute, beat a retreat, and escaped in•
to his dwelling-house. Henry would hare continu
ed the discussion with the porter, bat fortunately
he spoke nothing bat German' So be was lath to
• accompany his friend to the inn, venting upon
by the way, the superabundance of his ill humor.
"By heavens!" he exclaimed, as . soon as 'they

"that it was rather he who was in want of a tick

arguments as if your fortune or your honor bad been

"In your opinion, then, I should have done better

"When the right is not worth defending."
"Ah, how like your interrupted Henry, warmly;
"you are always ready to yield; one mast be walking
over your body before you think of defending your
self. Instead of considering the world a battle-&ld,
you take it to be a drawing-room, for the inter
change of,courtesies."

scrambled down from the roof and sought refuge in
the kitchen, where a large Ore blazed. On entering,
he found a group Of travelers already assembled'
round the cheerful hearth, and amongst them, to his
surprise, were his cousin and the traveler whom he
had deprived of his place. The cabriolet had taken
them by a cross•road, which -was a short cut, and
they had been an hour at the inn.
On remarking his cousin's deplorable plight, Hui

traveler whom Fortin had dispoasessed at Cernay,
ho could not restrain a hearty laugh. •
"Upon my livid," he cried, "I Inuit thank this
gentleman for having drivei me from the imperial

now be wet and half frozen as he its insteadef being

Fortin's position was altogether too bad to admit
of a retort ; he set down before the fire, and tried to
warm himself.
As soon as he was ',little revived, he asked fur
a room and a bed; but the Keyscrberg fair was only
just over ; and the inn was full of persons who wore

Misa Charlotte and her niece Louisa were prepar

When's guide spoke a few words in a low voice to
the'two ladies, who received the young man with I
courteous kindness. They made him sit down at
table, and L•osisa filled the cups. As to Miss Cha

"The will of our uncle. Doctor tiarver."

Rosmass i gazing at the yciung man with a certain
degree of inierest. "Chance could hardly have di

intimate friend." l
This sort of mutual recognition led ,to the con
versation about the deceased doitor. hlulzen had
never seen bim, but be felt for him that sort of res
pectful regard _ which instinct establishes between
members of the same family. Me-talked a I wng time
of the doctor: listened with great interest to details
of his life and of his last moments; and at last after
one of those intimate conversations in. which, heart
and mind throw of disguise, and display themselves
as they really are, he retired to bed, delightel with
Iris hosts, who, on their part were equally pleased
with him.
Tired with his journey, it IVI4 late when he awoke
next morning. He hastened to dress himself, in
'order to seek his cousin, whom he was to accompa
ny to the notary with whom the wilt was deposited.
But, on going down into the breakfast room he found
the notary there, with Mr. Rosman and with Fortin,
fur whom - a messenger had been sent. Miss Char ;
tette and Louisa soon appeared. When all wtqr
sembled, Mr. Rosman turned to the young
said, with a smile:

as well as at the uotares office." ,
Fortis made a sign of 'miens. Every y sat
down, and the notary was about to brea he seal of
the will Urhen he checked himself.
"This will," said he, "is of old ate, and, during

This unexpected proposal was folinwed by aping!

to break silence. -
"As far as I am concerned," said be, modestly,
"having no particular claim upon the good wilt of
the deceased, I cannot consider that I make a sacri

and I am quite willing to consent to it."
"For my part," said Miss Charlotte, "I make no
objections whatever?"
"In the name of tny ward," said Mr. Rosman, "I
give my consent."
“Theo," said the notary, turning to Henry, “tbere
is only this gentleman."

With these words Ihe - tore open the envelope,

the young girl, throwing herself into Miss City
