I was a coquette. Many a lover's
heart I had lacerated by refusing his
offer of marriage, after I had lured
him on to a declaration. My last vic
tim's name was James Frazer. fie
was a tall, awkward, homely, ungainly
man, but his heart was as steel. I re
spected him highly, and felt pained
when I witnessed his anguish at my
rejection of him. But the fact was, I
had myself fallen in love with Captain
Elliott, who had been unremitting in
his devotion to me.
Mr. Jas. Frazer warned me against
Elliot, but I charged him with jealousy
and took his warning as an insult.
A few days afterwards Elliot and I
were engaged, and my dream of ro
mantic love seemed to he in a fair way
of realization. I had a week of hap
piness. Many have not so much in a
lifetime. Many awake from the bright
short dream to find themselves in a
lifelong darkness, and bondage from
which there is no escape. Thank God
I was not so miserable as they !
My mother was a widow in good cir
cumstances, but had very bad health.
She was also of an easy, listless,
credulous nature—hating trouble, and
willing to take things just as they
happen to present themselves. She
therefore made no inquiries about Cap
tain Elliot—but fondly believed that
inasmuch as he was a Captain he must
necessarily be a man of honor also, -ea=
pocially as he had served in the Crim
ea and India and won medals. His
regiment was quartered in our neigh
borhood, and he had the reputation of
being one of the wealthiest, as he was
certainly the handsomest officer in it.
I remember well the day WO became
engaged. He was on duty, but had
managed to ride over to our house in
his uniform, and while we were walk
ing in the gardeit he made the tender
avowal. I referred him to 'mamma;'
he hastened to her—returning in a few
minutes, and led me into her presence
to receive - the assurance that the ma
ternal consent had been readily given.
My dear mother hated trouble, and tada.cly; .so
that she was well pleased to find a
husband presenting himself in a form
and manner apparently so eligible for
her beloved and only daughter.
Wel!, a week passed quite delight
fully as I have said; and at the expira
tion of this there might have been
seen an equestrian party winding
through our old Devonshire woods and
quiet country iNds.' Elliot and I led
the cavalcade. I rode my own beauti
ful brown Bess. Captain Elliot was
mounted on a handsome black horse
that had been sent from London.—
Following us was a bevy of merry
girls and their cavaliers; and among
them was tall, awkward and silent Jas.
Frazer. his pre-seri - Co had marred all
the pleasure of my ride, and I was glad
to be in advance of them all that I
might not see him.
And as we rode on through the
woods, and I listened, well pleased, to
the low but animated words of the
gallant Elliot, who wished himself a
knight and me a fair layde of the old
en time that he might go forth to do
battle and compel all men to recognize
the claims of his peerless love. Very
eloquent he spoke of the inspiration of
love, of the bravo deeds and perilous
exploits it had prompted, wishing
again and again that. be might pro
claim and maintain his love before the
world. It pleased me to listen to this
and to believe it sincere, though I
surely had no wish to put my lover to
such a test.
A shot suddenly rang through the
woods and a wounded bird, darting
past, fluttered and fell at the feet of
brown Bess. With a bound and a
spring that nearly unseated me, she
was off.
Struggling to retain my seat, I had
no power to check her, and even as
she now, the fear and madness of the
moment grew upon her. I could only
cling breathlessly to the mane and
bridle, and wonder helplessly where
this mad gallop was to end. Slio
swerved from a passing wagon, and
turned into a path that led to the riv
er. In the sudden movement the
reins bud been torn from my hands
and I could not regain them. I clung
to the mane and closed my eyes, that
I might not behold the fate that await
ed me. How sweet was life in those
precious moments that I thought my
last. How all its affections, its last
crowning love rose up before me. I
thought of the pang that would rend
Elliot's heart as he saw me lying, man
gled and dead; and the thought would
come if he were pursuing and trying
to save me; even, as he had said, at the
risk of life and limb;
I remembered no more. I felt a
sudden shock, fearful rushing through
the air, and kr.opw no mere until days
afterward, I woke to a faint, weak
semblance of life in my chamber' at
home. I never saw Captain Elliot
again. The last words I ever hoard
from his lips were those of a knightly
daring. The last action of his life in
connection with mine, was to follow
in the train of frightened youths who
rode after me, to contemplate the dis
aster from afar, and as soon as he saw
me lifted from the shallow bed of the
river, into which I had been throVrn
when my frightened horse stopped
suddenly on its banks, to ride hastily
off'. That evening ho sent to make in:
quiries and learning that I was severe
ly, but it Was hdpod not fatally, in
jured, he thenceforth - contented him
self with such tidings of ray condition
and improvement as could bo gained
from mere rumor. •
At last it was known that I would
never recover entirely from the effects
of my injury, and that very day Cap
tarn Elliott departed suddenly from
the neighborhood. Ho made no at
tempt to see me, nor sent me any fare
well. When I was once more abroad,
beginning, though with much unal
loyed bitterness, to learn the lesson of
patience and resignation that awaited
me, I received a letter from liim, in
which he merely said that be presum
ed my own judgment had taught me,
that in my altered circumstances, our
engagement must come to an end, but
to satisfy his own sense of honor
honor 0 he wrote to say while enter
taining the highest respect for me ho
desired a formal renunciation of my
claim. Writing on the bottom of this
letter, "Let it be as you wish," I re
turned it to him at once, and thus end
ed my brief dream of a romantic wed
I heard ere this of Elliot's cowardly,
unmanly conduct on that day, Mkt
now I first bethought the to inquire
who had rescued me from that immi
nent death. And I lebrned that Jas.
Frazer, his arm already broken by the
jerk with which brown Bess tore away
from him as he caught at her bridle,
had ridden after me, and been the
first to lift me from the water. Many
-tizzies Uttliy'bc , eizatio-4.iui-Hos-oont,--ovil
ing me; his had been the hand that
sent the rarc flowers that had decked
my room ; his were lips that breathed
words of comfort and hope to my poor
mother; his were the books that I
read during the days of convalescence;
and his, now, the arm that supported
me, ns slowly and painfully I paced
the garden walks.
I have been Ids wife for many a year.
I have forgotten that he is not hand
some—or rather be is beautiful to me,
because I see his grand and loving spi
rit shihing through his plain features
and animating his awkward figure. I
have long since laid aside, as utterly
untenable, my theory that beautiful
spirits dwell only in lovely bodies. It
may be it providential compensation
that, in denying physical perfection,
the soul is not drawrfed or marred by
petty vanity or love of the world's
tA'A soldier came borne from the
war with an arm so badly Wounded
that the sucgoon insisted that amputa
tion was the only thing that could be
thought of. But the soldier resisted,
and was nursed by the girl he loved,
whom he married. She gave to him,
or his wounded arm, all her thoughts
and care, and he recovered. In duo
time, however, she gave birth to a
child, and this child bad one developed
arm, but the other was a stump, simi
lar to the one which the poor wife's
mind was impressed with at the time
the surgeons were ,talking of cutting
off her husband's. Amputation could
not have produced a more beautiful
stump, and what is more, the scar of
the bullet hole so visible on the father's
arm, was as visible on the child's arm
at the base of the stump as if really in
flicted by a ball.

Driving off therog.
On a late trip of the steamer Ex-.
press from Nashville, she was detain
ed several hours by fog. Captain
McComas, anxious to got along, did
not stop his boat, but kept her cau
tiously moving forward, having both
eyes wide open for an obstacle. Pass
ing the stern of the boat to make an
observation, ho was met by a passen
ger, who said to him—
" Captain, why don't your drive off
the fog ?"
"Just the thing I should like to have
you tell me how to do."
"Como down into the oabin,and I'll
tell you how an old German friend of
mine once did it."
In a few minutes afterwards they
were comfortably seated in the cabin
when the passenger commenced by
"I shall expect you to believe it, and
of course try my experiment."
"In the rich valley of the Mohawk,
there is a quiet little village called
Sparker's Basin. Not many years ago
and before there was such a thing as
a railroad in tho State of New York,
the veritable Mr. Sparker, the patri
arch and founder of Sparker's Basin,
was keeping a tavern a mile or so
from the village, upon the thoroughfare
known as Johnstown road. Sparker's
as it is generally called, was in early
times the great rendezvous for the
Si° ral-rircm, %1-hi n
Albany with their wheat, and of the
Jefferson and Lewis county drovers:
Now and then a Now York merchant
on his trip to the northern settlements
was to be seen before the great wood
fire in Sparker's tavern. This class of
travelers were held in much respect
by old Sparker, and the honest Dutch
farmers on the river. One of this class
accosted the old man on the porch ono
foggy morning

A Father-in-Law in Spite of Himself.
The London Correspondent of the
Now Orleans Delta writes the follow
ing to that paper :
' A good sell is related of a wealthy
banker here, who is very good-natured,
but inclined to be a trifle fast in his
views of life. Ile had a favorite clerk,
a young man of about and
remarkably handsome, modest and
highly intellectual. For those quali
ties ho was liked by every one, and the
banker did not escape the general feel
ing of good will. He was as poor as
his salary, and had no connections to
push him after fortunes, and so, like
most English clerks, he would rise to
ono hundred and twenty pounds a
year, go on for eight years at ten
pounds a year rise, and marry when
he gets two hundred pounds a year,
henceforth to vegetate and find that
the additional ton pounds a year rise
only kept pace with the additional
babes in the household.
The banker, on Sunday afternoon,
when no one was expected, would oc
casionally ask the young man to visit
his young family at his suburban villa;
as the conversation of the young man
was so correct and clover, it could not
but be of advantage to his children.
This was a mistake, evidently, but it
was a good natured error, and we can
only wish, all of us, that there were
more committed. I have not men
daughter of nineteen, but that may al
ways be understood in any English
family that has known wedded life
long enough. But there were, of course,
no attentions on the part of the young
man other than extremely dolivate,
reserved and proper. This will most
always be the case with English youth,
as Americans well know. Don't "bone
after this. The youth, in spite of two
or three, days' invitation to the bank
er's country seat, to breathe fresh air
and clear his lungs of London smoke,
was evidently very ill, and though he
declared himself well and robust, the
banker shook his head.
"1 cannot make out what is the
matter with my young clerk," said the
banker to a confrere who was in his
back office with him, after the youth
had just brought in some papers•
"Well, you arc green, I should say,
for a man of your time of life and ex-.
perionee," said banker number trio.
"Don't you see what's the matter ? he's
in love ?"
"In love ! bah. He is modesty and
propriety itself."
"I toll you it is a fact, and with : a
rich old fellow's daughter who would
no more think of having him for a son
in-law than you would, yourself?'
"Oh, the haughty old fool; my clerk
is as good as his daughter,apd be bang
ed to him. Thank you for the hint."
As soon as banker number two had
gone, tho_clerk_was called in.
"So sii•; you are iii — levo,and Piing
away for the object of your affection—
that's the secret, is it? Why did you
not tell me before, - sir ?"
The youth was silent.
"Well, my boy, I pity yon, but I
will give you a word of advice. lithe
daughter is fair, she is worth making
a risk for. Look here; there aro £5OO
and two month's of leave of absence.
Run away with the girl. Bah, don't
look so stupid. I did the same before
you, and it didn't hurt me."
The clerk fell on his marrow bones,
and was upon the point of making a
clean breast of it, when the old man
rose and left precipitately, to avoid a
scene. The young man considered and
acted, and the consequence was that
the next day week there was no young
daughter at the dinner table of the
banker at the country house. The
house was in consternation, and a
search made for her in all direetioni.
A note, however, was found on her
dressing table, conveying the custo
mary prayer of forgiveness, and one
enclosed from the young clerk stating
that believing the banker bad meant ,
to give him a hint in regard to
his daughter, and was notable to - give
his public consent owing to appearan
ces, he had acted on the suggestion,
and that ere his "father-in-law" bad
received the letter he would be his
son-in-law. This pill was a bitter one,
and the joke a terrible one against
him; so it was bushed up and has only
got to the ears of the purveyors of
scandal and to your correspondent,
who records it as a , trait of London
lier . " What aro you sitting that child
on that quarto dictionary for?" said
Mrs. D., as the pater arranged; his
boy at the breakfast table, "I am,"
l'OPlied be; "fixing the basis of a sound
English edueation." "Yes," Said she
"but you are the wrong

Manufacture of Matches.
In one match factory in Western ,
New York, 720,000 feet of pine wood' l
of the best quality, is annually cut up
into matches, and 400,000 feet of basi , _
wood for cases. 400 barrels of sulphur
and 9,000 pounds of phosphorous are
annually.used. 500 pounds of paper
per day are used to make the light
small boxes, for holding the matches,
and four . tons of paste-board per week
for the larger boxes. Sixty-six pounds
of flour per day are used for paste, and
the penny stamps of internal revenue
amount to the sum of 31,440 per day.
300 hands are employed at the works
which are run night and day. -
There are four machines in use for
cutting, dipping and delivering match
The two•inch pine plank is sawed
up the length of the match. These go
into the machine for cutting, when at
every stroke twelve matches are cut,
and, by the succeeding stroke, pshed
into slats, arranged on a double chain
250 feet long, which carries them to
the sulphur vat and from thence to the
phosphorus vat, and thus across the
chain and back, returning them at a
point just in front of the cutting ma
chine, and where they are delivered in
their natural order, and are gathered
up by the boy into trays and sent to
the packing room. Thus 1000 gross,
or 144,000 small boxes of matches are
king the small, thin paper boxes; and .
their covers, are quite• as wonderful
and ingeniously contrived as those,
that make the matches. A long ro
of paper; as wide as the box is long,
revolves on a wheel, one end being in
the machine. It first passes through
rollers, Where the printing is done; from
thence to the paste boxes, where the
sides and ends only are pasted; from
thence to the folding apparatus, where
the ends are nicely folded, and the
whole box is pasted together and drops
