Once upon a time, a good many years e a r l , there
was a traseler e an4 he set out up ri ti- j>ur4ey. It
was a mag;c journey , ati:twai I.) seem vy long
when he began it, end verfaltort •,%11.. , n he y o
Ile traveled along a rather dark path for iortselt.-
tie time, without Meeting any thing; until 1(1 last,bs
came to a beautitol Si lie said to tips
"What do you do berer And the child said, "I am.
always at play. Curve and play with merj
' So he played with that ;child the whole (lay long,
and they were very merrf. The sky was! so blue,
the sun was so bright, the water was so sitalkking,
the leave"s were so green the floweri were so love
ly, and they heard such singing-bird., and saw so
many butterflies, that every thing was beidatiful.—
This was In fine weather. • When it reihed,.they
loved to watch the 'ailing drops, and totmelt the
-fresh scent!. When it blew, it was deqghtful to
listen to the wind, and flncy what it said, is it came
rushing from its hurne--.4here was that, 3 ey won
dsted!—whistling and heeling, driving the clouds
before it, beading the trees, rumbling in the chim
nees, shaking the house; sod making the rem roar in
fury. But, when it snowed, that was ei.st of all;
fertility liked'nothing so . well as,te look Op at the
white flakes falling tasting thick, like down from
the breasts of millions of white birds; and it. see how
smooth and deep the drift was; and to lidten to the
hush upon the paths and-rtieds. i . .
They had plenty of the tinest . toys in 'She world,
and the moat astuoishing picture•bookisi till about
scimitars and slippers 11,11d 1 turbans, and diverts and
giants and genii and fairies, and blue•heards and
bean•lstalks and riches' and caverns and tiirestio and
Valentines and Orson.; and all new andiall true.
But one day, of a and en, the traveller lost the
child.. He called to 'him aver and over !Utile, but
got no 'answer. So he went upon his read, and west
on for a little while with*t meeting gni : thing, un
til he came to a handsomet
boy. So he ;said to the
boy, "What do you do, here?' And die boy said,'
"I am always learning.: come and learit With me."
So he harped with that; boy about Jupiter awd Jr
no, led the Greeks and the Boman*, and I don't know
whit, and learned more) than I could tell—or be
either, for be zoos for(ot I great deal if it. But
they were not always learning; they had-the merri
est games that ever were flayed. They rowed up
on:the river In summer, Ind skated eh the ice in
winter; they were active afoot, and active oa horse-
I backf r cricket, and - ill Ames at beli;: the prises
era' base, hare and bounjs, follow my . leider, and
i more sports than I can think of; nobody could beat
them. They had holidays, too and Twelfth cakes,
and parties whore ;bey danced all night till 'Mid
night, and real 'Theatres where they saw palaces of
real geld and silver rise out of the real earth, and
saw all the wonders of the world at once. As to
friends, they had such dear friends and so many of
them, that I want the time to reckon them up. They
were all young, like the handsome buy, and were
sever to be strange to one another all that...lives
Still, mu day, is the midst of all them Flotsam,
the traveler lost the boy as he bad lost Um child;

journey. So, be wont on for a liuls while without

aed.she had eyes like Fanny, and hair like Fanny
and dimple■ like Fanny's, and abe laughed and col
ored just as - Fanny does while lam talking about
her. So, the young man fell in love directly—jest
es Somebody I won't mention, the first time became
here, did with Fanny. Well! He was teased some
times--just es Somebody used to be by Fanny; and
they quarrelled sometimes...just as Somebody and
Fanny used to quarrel; and they made it up, and sat
in the dark, OA wrote 'letters every day, - and never
were happy asunder,.and were always looking out
for one soother and pretended not to, 'and were en
gaged at Christmas time, anti sat close to one ano
ther by the fire, and were going to be married- very
aeon—ell exactly like Somebody I won't mention,
and Fanny! •
But .the traveler knit them one day, as he had lost
the rest of his friends, and after Icallingle them to
come back, which • they never did, went on upon .his
journey. sSo, he went on fur a•little while without
seeing any thing, until at last he came to a middle.
aged vitamin'. Su, he said to the gentleman,
"What are you doing betel" And his answer Was,
"I am always busy. Come and be busy with me!"
So, he began to he very busy with that gentle
man, and they went on through the wood together.
The wimile kmrney was through a wood, Italy it had
been open aid green at first, like a' wood in spring;
and new'bogan to be thick and dark, like a wood in
summer; tome of the du* trees', that had come out
earliest,;were even turning brown.. Thegentleman
was not alone, but had a lady of about the same age
With him, who was his wife; and they b chi'dree,
who were with ahem' too. So; they sit Tat on to
gether through the wood, cutting down e tree.,
and making a path through the branches a the
failed leaves, and carrying burdens,• and working
Sonsetintes. they game to a len: green avenue that
opened into deeper - woods. Then they would hear
every distant voice crying, "Father, father I am

would see a 'very little figure, growing . larger as it
came thing, running to join them. When it Carne
up, sad biased and welcomed it; and then they all
went on together.
Sometimes, they came to several avenues at once,
and thin they all good still, and one sif the children
said, "Father, I am going to sea," and another said,
"Father, I am going to Indis;" and another, "Fa
ther, I am going to *felt my fortune where I can;?
and another, "Father, lem goingto Heaven:" So,
with many tears at parting, they sent; solitary,
down those avenues, eaili child upon its way; and
thti child who went te Heaven, rose into the golden
iir and vanished.
Whenever these partings happened, the traveler
hooked at the gentleman, and saw him glance up to
the sky above the tree*, where the day was begin
ins to decline, and the eunseeto come on. He saw,
'too, that his hair was turning greys •But, they
eer could rust tong, fur they had their journey to per
form, and it was nicess , ary for them to be always
At last,t here had been so many partings that there
were no children left, and only the traveler, the gen
tleman, and, the lady, went upon their way in cnm
pany. And now the wood was yellow, and now
brown; sod the leaves, even of the forest trees, ba
ted to fall.
•So, they came to an avenue that was darker than
the rest, - and , were pressing furvrirci on their journey
without looking down it when the lady stopped.
"My husband," - mid the lady, "I am called."
TheY listened, sad they heard a Taloa-aloft way
down the avenue," say, is - Mother, mother!" 7
It was the vice ul the first child who bad said,
"I am going to Heaven!" and the father said. "I
pray not yet. The sunset is veil near. I pray not
But, the voice cried, "Ilother i m3ther!" without
minding him, though his hair Was now quite white,
and the teara were ou bit face.
° Then, the mother, who was slnraily drawn into
the shade of the dark event*, and tnovingwway with
her arms still round his neck, kissed him, and said,
"My dearest, (-am summoned, and f go!" And she
was gone: And the traveler and he were left alone
And thy,' went on and together, until they cat&
to very near the end of the wood; . so near, that they
could see the sunset shining red before them through
Yet, onceore, while he broke his way among
the branches the traveler lost his friend. He call
ed and called, but there Orps no reply, and .when he
passed out of the wood, and saw the ptactiful sun
going down upon . a wide.purple prospect, he came
to an old $
man sitting - on fallen tree,. So, he said
to the old man, "What do you do hirer And the
old man said, with a calm smile, "I am always re
membering. Come and remember with me!"
So, the traveler eat down by the side of that old
man, face to face, with the serene sunset; and all
his friends caw* softly back and stood around hint.
The beautiful child, the handsome boy, the young
man in love, the father, mother, and children; eve
ry one of them was there, and he had lost nothing.
So, be loved them all, and was kind and forbearing
with theta 01, and was always pleased to watch them
all, and they all bonered and levedhim. And I think
the traveler must he yourself, dear Grandfather, be

in the history of the lady, who, as is ofEeiaily an
nounced, was to be united to Louis Napoleon ,by
civil set on the 23J. and• by religious rites on the
38th of the lapt month. These details. we have re
ceived from a foreign gentleman who is perfectly,
aeqoainted with the facts and. persona in question;
and they may be relied on at authentic. .
fifetiotit a Eugenia de Tabs; or as, she. is more usu
ally known, do , Montijo, is the daughter of a
nobleman who belonged to one of the most eminent
families of the Spanish aristocracy, that of Pulliam,
Ind who distinguished himself in the civil war of
1823, under the title of the' Cnuht of Teha. At

a Scotch gentleman who held the post of Consul df

romantic marriage was the consequence. Thenew

widow, and who accompanies her daughter on her

Pearance in fashiOnable life, the daughter has been
tenerally distinguished. She also inherits a hand
some fortune, her independent income being- some
lltiag t 530,000 a year. The father died 'some
pears since, leaving two daughters; the elder now
the t'tle of Duchess of Ailva
and Berwick, than which the n 'dotty cap

Fur some years the young C 'unto; dc Tebt or
Montijo, who is no.v ablut2s years ut age,lts*rn
joyed at Medrid the re,nitatian cif an exeeeirmgly
fast woman. Tall, graceful, of statue/qt.! synyne

pale eemplesion, which btu latterly stood in need of
a 'little rouge, great electrical eyes of a brokn so
deep and radiant as td pass for black, rather long
and aristocratic features, Barge kit -sculptured nose
and i lovely mouth with . teeth of dazzling white
ness, she is a type of admirable beauty, which a
languid and blase air hardly diminishes. Eo lowed
with uncommon wit and spirit, she speaks French,
English, Italian and German with as moth fluency
as Spanish. A proficient in exercises of strength
and address, she rides with the hil l iest, and drives
four in hind with the most skilful.
At Midrid it was the habit of our licraino to bid
defiance to public opinion as the whim might seize
her. She used to appear alone in public driving her
own carriage. Bhe had a separate establikhment
in her mother's palace, inviting and receiving coin.
piny without consulting her mother, and often re
fusing access even to her relatives. Oace her
mother forced her door, despite the remonstrances
of the servant, who
.protested that the Countess
wanted to be alone. To her amazement mho found
that the daughter was missing. For twenty four
hours the young lady did, not appear, and *hen she
returned, cooly Infornied her afflicted parent, who
bad loudly expressed her feari that• there had been
an elopement, that she had been awe* on an errand:
On another occasion, the whim- takis her'to pay
a special compliment to literature, and her carriage I.
stops at the door of Senor Escosurs; one of :the
most prominent of Spanish auttiors, who was some
years once Minister of the Crown. "Good morn•
ing'mv dear sir." was her *elution to tbe astonish
ed litierateurl "I have come is breakfast with you
in order to have a telk on Monism, and poetry."—
A few weeks later &scoria gave a dieser to •
number of lierary then, artists, and actors; at which
the Countess was present,- without her mother or
any other lady "as chaperone. She was •the life of
the party, making speeches and Rieke, toasts wail
the loudest. Among the guests was a third rate
French actor, named Laferrierre, who had had
great success in Madrid. He was from the Theatre
Historique in Paris. She took a fancy to him and
had a long conversation with him. When the time
for leaving came, "well," said the Countess, "my

GET Mastainn.—Young man, if you have arrived
at the right point in life for it, let every considers- i
tion give way to that of getting married. I)uu't
think of anything else. Keep puking about the rub
bish of the world, till you have mitred up a gem
worth possessing in the shape of a wife. Never
think of delaying the matter ; fur yen know delays
are dangerous. A good wife is the must faithful
and constant companion you can possibly have by
your side, white performing the jonrney of life—a
dog isn't a touch to her. She can "smooth your
linen and yout.cares" fur yoe—mend your trowsers
and perchance your vaunters—sweeten yo•fr sour
moments as well as your tea and coffee, perhaps,
your shirt bosom, but not your temper ; end instead
of sowing the seeds of sorrow in your path, she will
sew the buttons on your shirts, and plant happiness
instead of sorrow in your bosom.
When a woman loves, she loves with a doubled
distilled devotedness ; and when she hates, it is on
the high pressure principle; her love is as deep as
the ocean, as strong as a hempen halter, and as im
mutable as the roek of ages. She wont ehango ex
cept it is in a very strong fit of jealousy ; and even
then it lingers as if loth to depart, like evening twi
light at the windows of the West. Get married by
all means.. All the excuses - you can fish up against
doing the deed, ain't worth a spoonful of pigeon's
milk. Get married, I repeat, young men ! Con
centrate your affestions upon one object and do not
distribute them crumb by crumb among a host of

good for nothing without the labor of men; and I do

what would more conduce to these than such a
