quiet game of cards with their host and his
wife, Petrouna, the younger, in the hope of
gaining 'the good graces of Mari, a fair girl
of seventeen, the only child and heiress of
Mari used to read French romances, and,
as the natural and necessary consequence,
was deeply in love. The object of her affect
ion was an almost penniless young ensign
belonging to the neighborhood, - and then at
home on leave, who returned her love with
equal ardor. It is scarcely necessary to add
that the young lady's parents had strictly
forbidden her to think of such an alliance;
and whenever they mot the lover they received
hire with about that amount of friendliness
which they would bestow on an ex-collector
of taxes. Our young lovers, however, man
aged to keep up a correspondence, and used
to meet in secret beneath the shadow of the
pine-grove or the old chapel. On these oc
casions, they, of course vowed eternal con
stancy, accused Fate of unjust rigor, and
formed various projects. At :ength they
naturally came to the conclusion that, as
the gill of cruel parents opposed their mar
riage, they might very well accomplish it in
secret- It was the young gentleman who
first propounded this proposition, and it
was most favorably received by the young
The approach of winter put a stop to their
interviews, but their correspondence went on
with increased frequency and fervor. In
each of his letters, Vladimir Nicolevitch con
jured his beloved to leave her home and con
sent to a private marriage. "We will disap
pear," ho said, "for a short time; then, one
day, we will go and throw ourselves atyour
parents' feet, who touched by our heroic con
stancy, will exclaim: 'Children, come to our
arms!' " For a long time Mari hesitated.—
At length it was agreed that on a certain
day she should not appear at supper,•but re
tire early to her rooni on the pretext of a vi
olent headache. Her waiting-maid was in
the secret, and they were both to slip out
through a back door, near which they would
find sledges waiting to convey them to the
chapel of Jadrino, about five versts distant,
where Vladimir and the priest would await
Having made her preparations, and writ
ten a long letter of excuse to her parents,
Mari retired at an early hour to her room.—
During the day, she had complained of a
headache, which 'certainly was more than a
pretext, for nervous excitement had made
herroally ill. Her father and mother watched
her tenderly, and constantly asked her:—
"How do you feel now, Mari; are you still
suffering?" Their fond solicitude Went to
the young girl's heart, and with the approach
of evening her agitation increased. At din
ner she ate nothing, and soon afterwards rose
to take leave of her parents. They em
braced her, and according to their usual
custom, gave her their blessing. Mari could
scarcely refrain from sobbing. When she
reached tier chamber she threw Waal' into
an arm chair and wept aloud. Her waiting
maid tried to coiseede.antl,ehers her, and at

NY WORK. .
I have a work to do,.
A work I may not shun;
One path I must pursue
Until my life he done.
What others do I need not ask;
Enough for me I know my task
is not to seck for wealth—
I covet 80 man's more;
I thank my GOD for health—
I ask for nothing more.
My daily wants are soon supplied,
Or what I do not need, denied.
Let others seek for fame,
• The homage of an hour,
I care not fora name,
For glory, or for power.
The race I leave to others free—
Such transient bliss is not for me
Pleasure, that syren fair,
Hu lost her power to charm;
Her joys are empty air,
I own no more their charm;
For other accents seem to say,
'Stay not, but work while yet 't is day,
To wipe the trembling tear
From the pale mourner's eye;
To soothe the anxious fear,
Or hush the rising sigh;
This is a bliss for which to live,
A joy that wealth can never give
To strive against the wrong,
Which takes the name of right:
To battle with the strong,
And conquer in the fight,
Brings truer happiness than could

appeared. The entire heti was covered
with a thick yellow 01°m:1,1 : tame fell mas
ses rather than flakes of iii6 p s and soon all
distincti bets land 7- * - Lt! sky lc'
felt his spirits revive.
However, as they say in,the fairy tales,
he went on and on and on, and yet could
not find Jadrino. His poor-tired steed, with
the utmost difficulty dragged him to the oth
er side of the forest; and by the tune lie
had arrived there the stormtad ceased, and
and the moon shone out. No appearance,
however, of Jadrino ; before him lay ex
tended a laXge plain, towardi the.centre pf
which the poor traveller descried scimitar of
four or five houses. Ho hastened towards
the nearest, and descending from the sledge,
knocked at the window. A small door in
the shutter opened, and the white beard of
an old man appeared.
"What do you want ?"
" Is it far to Jadrino ?"
" Jadrino I About ten vents."
At this reply Vladimir felt like a criminal
condemned to execution.
"Can you," said he, "furnish me with
horses to go there ?"
" Wo have no horses."
" Well, then, a guide ; I will give him
whatever ho asks."
"Wait, then," said the old man ;
send you ray son."
The window was carefully closed and a
considerable time elapsed. Vladimir, whose
impatience became quite uncontrollable,
knocked again loudly at the shutter.
The old man reappeared.
" What do you want ?"
" Your son."
" Iles coming; he is dressing himself.—
Are you cold? Come in end warm your-
" No, no ; send out your son."
At length a young lad, witht a stout stick
in his hand, made his appearance, and led
the way across the snow covered plain.
"What o'clock is it?" asked Vladimir
"Day will soon break."
The - sun's rave, indeed, had begun to
gild the east, and the village cooks were
crowing when they arrived at Jardine. The
church door was closed. Vladimir,• having
paid and dismissed his guide, hastened tow
ards the priest's dwelling. What was he
about to hear?
Let us first inquire what was going on in
the mansion of the master of Nenaradof.—
Just nothing at all. In the morning the
husband and wife got up as.usual, and went
into the eating-room—Gabriel Galunovit c h,
in his woolen vest and night cap, and Pe
trowna in her dressing gown.
Tea was served, and Gabriel sent a maid
to inquire for Mari. The girl returned with
a message that her young mistress had pas
sed a restless night, but now felt better and
was coming down. In a few minufes Mari
enterel and embraced her parents.
"How do you feel, my poor little one?"
Asked her father. .
"Better," was the answer.
The day passed off as usual, ibut towards
evening Mari became yery ill and feverish.

of the other itectinaplieett, even lifter having'
drunk wino, bretithe u s -word ntithe tcabject,

of Gabriel. Mari, however, during her de

The invalid recovered. Vladimir, during
her illness, had never appeared at the house;
and it was lietennineci that his unexpected
good fortune sliould be announced to
that he should be told he was now free to
marry his beloved. What was the astonish

young ensign, in Which he declared' he
would never enter their dwelling again, and
prayed them to forget an unhappy being.
for whom death was the only refuge!
A. few days afterwards they learned that
Vladimir had.rejoined the army. It was in
1812. No one ever mentioned. his name to
Mari, nor did she herself allude to him in
any way. Two or three months elapsed,

A colonel of hussars, named Vourmin,
wearing in his button-bole the Cross of St.
George, and on his face an interesting pale
ness, camp to spend al few month's leave of
absence on his estate, which joined that
where Mari was residing. The young girl
received him with far more show of favor
than she had hitherto bestowed upon any of
her visitors. They resembled each other in
many particulars; boat were handsome,
pleasant, intellectual, silent - and reserved.
There was a sort of mystery ia Sur demean
or of Vourmin which piqued the curiosity
and excited the interest of the heiress. Ile
evidently admired her, paid, her every
sible attention—why did he not speak of
love? He had acquired a habit of fixing his
bright, dark eyes on hers, half in reverie and
half with an expression that seemed to de- i

rejoiced at the thought that her daughter
would at length have a husband worthy of

to herself, "God be praised! .I hope every
thing will be - arranged to-day."
Vourmin found his lady-love dressed,in
white, seated beneath a tree, close by a lake,
with a book on her knee, like.any heroine
of romance. After the interchange of a few
common-place sentences, Vouruiio, with con
siderable agitation, told her that for a long
time he had been desirous of opening his
mind to her, and now prayed her to listen to
him for a few moments. She closed her
book, and cast down her eyes in token of
"I love you!" exclaimed Vourmin—"l
love you ardently!"
Mari bent down her head a little more.
"I have committed the imprudence of see

(Marirecollected the firstletter of St. Pretax.)

The memory of your sweet face and gentle
