• A cashmere.'
4 1 had rather you would send me one of
your old ones.'
' I shall do no such thing. Juliet ('arryll,
my dearest friend, is not going to be scorned
by the ilightons on account of a shabby
shawl. One thing, however, 1 shall exact
of you, and that is this : for you to promise
not to tell them it is a borrowed one. \\ ill
you promise V
4 Certainly—l of course, shall not be
anxious to have them know it. 1 hope it
is not a very high priced one.'
4 Oh, no,' said Ann, carelessly ; and
turning the conversation to another subject,
the shawl was not again alluded to while
It was about sunset when Juliet arrived
at the splendid mansion of the Ilightons,
which, being situated on the most elevated
piece of ground in Ifightonville, looked
proudly down on the humbler dwellings.
The family consisted of Mr. and Mrs.
Ilighton and their two daughters, Faustina
and Euphrasia, with at present the addition
of a young man by the name of Philip
Neville. They were all assembled in the
drawing room when Juliet entered.
Mr. Ilighton welcomed her politely
enough, yet with an air that plainly showed
that he remembered that she was the
daughter of a poor widow. Mrs. Ilighton
evidently intended that her reception of the
young guest should be kind in the extreme,
and for this purpose she over-acted her
part, ami exhibited a degree of patronizing
condescension, as ludicrous to the observer
as it was oppressive to its object. Faus
tina's manner towards her was marked
with a cold and haughty civility, while
Euphrasia, who had predetermined, as she
told Philip Neville previous to her arrival,
that Juliet should be to her the cause of an
infinite deal of mirth, winked at Neville,
and with some difficulty suppressed a giggle
when her mother introduced theni to each
other. Philip, with a want of reflection
natural enough in a young inan of three
and twenty, who had broken away from
the city with a determination to receive
amusement from whatever source might
offer, had entered into Euphrasia's plan of
deriving mirth from the appearance of Ju
liet, whom he had pictured to himself as
remarkably plain and awkward ; but when
he saw a beautiful girl of sventeen, whose
manners were superior to either ol Mr.
Ilighton's girls, he Felt so rebuked and was
so "much taken by surprise, that all the
awkwardness was on his part.
Euphrasia soon found that Juliet C<irr\ 11
was not a suitable subject to call into play
her illnatnred faeetiousness, the few shafts

THE BORROWED SHAWL.
BY MRS. CAROLINE ORNE.
4 What docs this mean ?' said Ann Ellery,
addressing her friend Juliet Carrvll, whom,
on entering her apartment, she found dili
gently engaged in packingatravellingtrunk.
4 I am going to Hightonville to make the
Ilightons a visit, who have invited me to
spend several weeks with them. You
know that my mother is a distant relation
to the Ilightons.'
4 No, I was not aware of that; hut I
have often heard them mentioned. They
are very rich and a very proud family, are
they not ?'
4 They are rich, without doubt,' replied
Juliet, 4 and have the reputation of being
proud and haughty, and this makes me
wonder why they invited me to visit them.
I at first wished to decline the invitation,
but mother thought I had better accept it.'
4 This is your best shawl, I believe,' said
Artn, unfolding one that was laying on a
chair and examining it.
4 Yes,' replied Juliet. 4 lt is hardly pas
sable, I am afraid, but I have not the
means to procure a better.'
4 It will never do for you to appear
among the Hightons with such a shawl as
this ; you shall have one of mine.'
4 Oh, no, 1 should not like to borrow a
shawl,' said Juliet.
4 No person will know that this is a bor
rowed one, unless you tell of it yourself.
I have one which I have never worn yet —
when I go home I will send it to you.'
FRIDAY EVE.YI\G, IWAY 21, 1850.
I of ridicule which she had ventured to send
; in that direction having invariably rebound
:ed upon herself. Faustina also found that
: the haughty demeanor she thought lit to
! assume did not appear to inspire her with
: that awe and deference which it was right
and proper for the daughter of a poor
widow to feel towards a daughter of the
wealthiest man in Hightonville. Even
M rs. High ton was surprised at the difficul
ty which she found in maintaining a digni
fied superiority, tempered with condescen
sion, in her intercourse with Juliet, and
what she intended for an amiable and faci
nating familiarity towards Philip Neville.
What was still worse, Philip was evident
ly more charmed with the sylph-like form
ol Juliet than Faustina's Juno-like figure,
and her soft hazel eyes possessed greater
power over him than the blue sparkling
orbs of Euphrasia.
But the hour of their revenge was nigh.
A walk was proposed one day after tea,
and. as in consequence of a morning show
er, the air was uncommonly cool for the
season, shawls were thought necessary.
Juliet had never examined the shawl
which Ann had loaned her, and when she
now unfolded it she was struck with its
richness and elegance. She at once felt
that it was a more expensive article than it
was proper for her to wear, though she
was far from estimating it at its real value.
If anything had power to thaw Faustina's
cold reserve, it was the sight of some ele
gant article of dress, and the moment Juliet
entered equipped for the walk, she ex
* w hat a superb shawl !'
• Oh, it is beautiful,' said Euphrasia.
♦ \\ hat wax the price of it ?'
Juliet felt her cheek crimson as she an
swered she could not tell exactly.
4 It is a handsomer and of belter quality
than yours, Faustina,' said Mrs. Ilighton,
taking hold of a corner of the shawl and
examining it. 'lt must at least have cost
a thousand or twelve hundred dollars."
4 Oh, no," said Juliet quickly, 4 certainly
not so much vis that,* for she remembered
Ann's answer when she asked if it was a
high priced one.
4 ou are mistaken,' said Faustina to her
mother, ' in imagining that such a shawl
cotdd be obtained for a thousand dollars.
Mine was as much as that, and it does not
look fit to be seen compared with it," and
that they might have a better opportunity
to judge, she took up her own shawl and
hehi it by the side of Juliet's.
4 1 should much sooner think it cost til
teen hundred dollars," said Euphrasia.—
4 Come, Juliet, you may as well own what
you gave for it as not.'
' Really," said Juliet, becoming much
embarrassed, 4 I cannot tell what the price
was exactly—as I didn't—that is, I forgot
4 Oli, I understand—it was a present,'
* Yes, that's it.* said Euphrasia.
4 Is the donor's name a secret ?' said •
' It is not a present,' said Juliet.
' Not a present, and yet you cannot re
member how much \ou gave for it!' ex
claimed Euphrasia. ' I wish that Pa could
afford to fill my purse so liberally as to
make fourteen or fifteen hundred dollars
appear as a trifle not worth remembering.'
' You can at least tell where you pur
chased it.' said Mrs. Ilighton.
Juliet's embarrassment began to give j
place to anger at thus being unmercifully 1
questioned, and even had she not promised
Ann not to tell that the shawl was a bor- i
rowed one, it is doubtful whether she
would have felt disposed to explain the
matter to their satisfaction.
4 I cannot tell where the shawl was pur- j
chased,'said she, 'neither shall 1 answer any
more questions on the subject,' and without I
saving more she left the room.
' What do you think of her now V asked j
Euphrasia, with a smile of exultation to
Philip, who had been a silent spectator to ,
4 1 think,' answered he, 4 that the Miss
does not wish to answer any more ques
tions, or give a particular account of the !
4 Your remark shows a great deal of ,
acuteness,' said Euphrasia, gliding into the i
recess of a window, and half concealing \
herself behind the folds of the curtain.
4 There is something wrong about it, at
any rate,'said Mrs. Ilighton, 4 and 1 expect
nothing but that she will bring disgrace |
upon us. I hope that Mr. Ilighton will
see now, that his generosity was quite mis- j
placed in insisting on her being invited to ;
make a visit here. He said that he owed ;
her mother's family some obligations when '
he was young, and as Mrs. Carryll is very \
poor, having nothing to depend on but a
small annuity, he thought it would he a ,
deed of charity to give her daughter a few (
weeks' board, to say nothing of the ad van- ;
tage it would lie to her to spend the time j
in a genteel family.'
Philip could not help smiling at this re- |
mark, for he thought if there had been any !
advantage it had been conferred rather than
received by Juliet, in whatever related to !
manners. The attention of Euphrasia, !
who had retired to a window, appeared to >
be absorbed m the perusal of a letter or |
note which she kept screened from view j
as much as possible by means of the cur- j
tain. While her sister had been engaged
in comparing the quality of the shawls,
she had observed a piece of paper pinned
near one edge of Juliet's, which had pro
bably escaped her notice when she unfolded
the shawl. It was from Ann Ellery, and
ran thus :
44 1 forgot, my dear Juliet, to mention
the price of the shawl, which I insisted on
lending you, if, like some I have seen, the
ladies you are going to visit have the curi
osity to know the price of every article in
a person's wardrobe. Such shawls sell for
fifteen hundred dollars, though mv father,
who has extensive dealings with an im
porter of such goods, had it for a Irifling
sum. After 1 went home, we held a fami
ly consultation on the subject, anil as mother
and I have shawls enough without it which
are equally handsome, we agreed that 1
could afford to make vou a present of this.
My parents join with tne in begging your
acceptance of it. If you refuse, and the
secret of its being a borrowed one should
transpire, I am afraid that you may be
compared to the bird in the fable which
decked itself in borrowed plumes. You
must not let your friends detain you longer
than the time specified in their note of in
vitation. ANN ELLERY."
4 What are you reading with so much
attention, Euphrasia ?' said her mother.
4 Nothing of consequence,' she replied,
and as she spoke she hastily thrust the
note into her pocket. In a minute after
ward, Philip Neville left the room, and
Euphrasia then showed the note to her
mother and sister.
' How lucky,' said Faustina, 4 where did
you find it V
4 lt was pinned to the shawl, and must
have escaped her notice. If we are only
discreet, we can turn the affair to our ad
4 \ es, I understand,' said Faustina, 4 to
a certain gentleman, who more than once
since he has been here, might as well have
said in so many words, that he was re
markable for the delicacy of his moral
sense, little tilings will appear great ones.
If it can only be made to appear to him
that our fine ladv has prevaricated a little
about the shawl, her influence ofer him
will he at an end, vet whether it will be
the means of your regaining yours or not
is another question.'
4 No matter, 1 am determined that .s/o
shall not have him at any rate.'
4 Are we going to he cheated out of our
walk,' asked Faustina.
4 No indeed," replied Euphrasia. 'There
stands Phil, drawing figures in the gravel
walk, and he will, of course, offer to go
with us, even though Miss Juliet has
thought proper to assert her dignity by
withdrawing her company, and going to
the solitude of her own apartment.*
4 What are you doing, Phil ?' said she,
as she and her sister entered the gravel
Philip, who was so deeply engaged with
his own thoughts that he did not notice
their approach, started at the sound of Ku
phrasia's voice, and slightly colored as lie
turned towards her.
4 1 ask your pardon for interrupting you,'
said bc, 4 as for aught'that 1 know to the
contrary, you were busy with some magi
cal diagram which would have thrown
some light upon the mysterious conduct
of Miss Carry 11 relative to the shawl.'
4 Why is her conduct mysterious ■' lie
• Because she denied that it was a pres
ent. when 1 happen to know, from infor
mation. that can be depended on, that it t.s.
Now if 1 had received so handsome a
present, nothing would have given me
more pleasure than to acknowledge it."
4 Perhaps it was from her beau,' said
Pauslina, 4 and she may have particular rea
sons, just now, for not wishing to be con
sidered as engaged, or she may possibly
he ambitous of having two strings to her
4 I cannot think tiiat Juliet is a coquette,
4 Then what can be her motive for de
nying that the shawl was a present ? Her
denial gives us a right to put an ufavorablc
construction upon the a Hair.'
Much more was said on the subject
with a view to prejudice Philip against
Juliet, in which they partially succeeded,
though, at the same time, by disclosing
unnmiable trails, which he had be!ore un
suspected, thev created a still stronger pre
judice against themselves.
The next day, as Juliet was walking by
herself, in a retired place, some distance
from the house, she met Philip. The
meeting, which she imagined to he acci
dental, had been pre-concertcd by him, tor
he secretly hoped that she would be in- j
dueod to make some explanation relative j
to the unpleasant affair of the shawl, '
which would exonerate her from the in
vidious implications of Faustina and Eu
phrasia. He therefore requested permis
sion to accompany her. t<he did not re
fuse his request, for she valued his good
opinion so highlv that she had determined
to make a full explanation to him of every j
circumstance uith regard to her borrowing
the shawl, the lirst opportunity. While ,
thinking in what manner site could best
introduce the subject, Euphrasia suddenly
emerged from a side path. She cast upon
them a supercilious glance, and then quick- j
lv turned in an opposite direction. At the
moment of her passing them she drew her :
j handkerchief from her pocket, which un
; perceived by her, was followed by the
note which she had surreptitously ob
tained. There was a fresh breeze, which
wafted it to the feet of Philip. As he
j stooped to pick it up, he saw that it was
! directed to Juliet.
4 This .appears to he intended for you,'
; said lie as he handed it to her.
4 Whv, this is Ann Ellery's writing,'
said she, • where could it come from ?'
4 Some good fairy, or an invisible Ariel,
must have dropped it into your path,' said
, he. 4 Perhaps when you conic to read it
I you will be able to judge if your friend
employed so dainty a messenger.'
4 Here are pin marks though no post
mark,' said she, as she commenced un
folding the le tor.
The follow ing postscript, which, had
escaped the observation of the Ilightons,
explained its mode of conveyance :
P. S. I have been thinking that if you
do not happen to see this note, the effect
would be rather ludicrous, should you ap
pear abroad with it, as it might be mis
taken for a placard. A. E.
4 VV ill you do me the favor to read this?'
said Julie?,handing the note to Philip when
she had finished perusing it.
It immediately recalled to his mind the
circumstance of his ha\ ing seen Euphrasia
in a recess of a window engaged in read
ing w hat appeared to he a Tetter, directly
after Juliet withdrew. He could not now
entertain a doubt that she had removed it
from die shawl, as Juliet assured him that
this was the first time she had ever seen it.
' 15ei nr ignorant of my friend's generous
intention, said she, 4 I of course consid
ered the shawl a borrowed one, and would
have gratified their curiosity by telling them
so, had they shown themselves less arro
gant ; lor. although .Miss Ellery, when
she insisted on lending it to me, desired me
not to mention it, her motive in doing so
was only to exempt me from embarrass- 1
Euphrasia had in the meantime returned
' What did you do with that note V said
the sister, as she entered the drawing room.
4 I put it in my pocket—whv do you
4 Because, as Miss Ellery may allude to
it when she writes, and Juliet said she was
expecting a letter from her by the next
mail. 1 think, in order to prevent anpleas- j
ant surmises, you had better drop the note
in a corner of her chamber. If she
finds it she will naturally think it fell from
the shawl when she unfolded it.'
4 It will be a good plan,' said Euphrasia.
4 I will throw it under the table, and she
will think that it was carried there bv the
Saying thus, Euphrasia started to go to
4 Stop a minute.' said Faustina, 4 let me
look at it.'
Euphrasia felt in her pocket and found
it was not there.
4 It is not here.' said she, 4 what can
have become of it ?'
4 Perhaps you left it in your room,'said
* No, I never took it out of my pocket
after I first put it there'. She reflected a
moment or two, and then said, 4 I must.
have pulled it from my pocket accidentally i
witli my- handkerchief,' and it was with no j
enviable feelings fhatshe remembered hav- !
ing taken it thence, about the time she met
Philip and Juliet. She put on her bonnet !
and instantly set out for the spot, for as
they were walking in an opposite direction
from herself, she did not feel very appre
hensive that they had found it. She
searched a long time, of course unsuccess
fully, yet she would not believe that it had
lillen in their way. There was nothing
in the appearance of Juliet or Philip when
they returned from their walk, to induce i
such a belief, but a few hours afterwards
a remark by the latter, which would have
been thought nothing of at another time,
produced much doubt and uneasiness.
Neither Mis. 11 ighton nor her daughters
were surprised, when after tea Juliet in
formed them that she would start for home
in the morning. She at first thought she
would make no allusion to the shawl be
fore her departure, but as she was about to
leave, she could not resist the temptation
of letting them know that she was aware
of the meanness one of them had been
guilty of, in stealthily possessing herself of
the note. The presence of Philip gave to
her words pungency which they did not
possess of themselves, and which it may
be hoped proved salutary, if subsequently,
cither of them was beset with a similar
4 1 am glad she is gone,' said Mrs. High
ton, an expression of gratification which
received a hearty response from both of
her daughters. Their feelings were some
what different when in three days after
wards, Philip discovered that it was indis
pensable for him to return home. Accord
ing to an opinion that they freely discussed
among theinsi Ives, .Juliet had inveigled him
into a promise of marriage. They were
sorely tried upon the subject, so much so,
that they came to the conclusion that it
was Mr. High ton's duty to write to Phil
ip's parents, in order to apprize thorn
of their apprehensions. Being naturally
dilatory, however. si\ weeks had glided
,\<*w crif-VoI. -S~iVo. 31.
away before she executed her intention by
writing as follows to Mrs. Neville :
" DEAR MADAM :—I have too long de
layed performing what I consider a duty,
by giving von a hint respecting a girl by
the name of Juliet Caryll, who, at the
suggestion of Mr. Ilighlon, was invited to
make us a vist, and who unfortunately
came when your son was our guest.
With a tolerable face and a great deal of
art. we have reason to fear that she suc
ceeded in making an impression on the
susceptible heart of that excellent yonng
man, who is worthy to connect himself
with a daughter of one of the first families
in the State, instead of a poor widow.
Sincerely hoping that you may feel dis
i posed to profit from this warning,
I remain Yours. <tc.,
In a few davs the subjoined answer was
4 - DEAR MADAM :—Y our letter came too
late to answer the purpose for which it
was intended. Philip, with the full con
: currence of Mr. Neville and myself, hav
ing already sought and obtained the prom
ise of Juliet Carryll's hand. That you
i may suffer no more anxiety from an ap
prehension of her unworthiness, my hus
band and I beg leave to assure you that,
according to the assertion of those whose
veracity can he depended on, they being
uninfluenced by any selfish motive, her
mental and moral qualities are fully equal
to her personal beauty.
Claiming your congratulations, rather
than vour pity, I remain Yours, <Ce.,
' I always knew,' said Mrs. Ilighton,
after she and her daughters had read the
letter, 4 that .Mr. and Mrs. Neville were
very odd and independent people. They
would let their son marry a beggar, if they
got it into their head that she possessed
superior moral and mental qualities.'
4 Who cares,' said Euphrasia. 4 Philip
Neville is not the only young man in the
world who is rich, handsome, and accom
4 No,' said Faustina, 4 but the worst of
it is, they are, like him, unattainable.'

from an eastern paper the following recipe
for preserving the beauty of gathered flow
'• Procure 3 flat dish of porcelain, in
which pour water ; place upon it a vase
of flowers, and over the vase a bell glass,
with its rim in the water. The air that
. surrounds the flowers being confined be
neath the bell glass, is constantly moist
with water, that arises into it in the form
of vapor. As fast as the water becomes
condensed it runs down the side oi the
bell glass in the dish, and if means be
taken to enclose the water on the outside
' of the bell glass, so as to prevent it from
evaporating inio the air of the sitting room,
the atmosphere around the flowers is con
tinually damp. The plan is designated as
the " Ilopean Apparatus." The experi
ment ma\ be tried on a small scale, by in
\erting a tumbler over a rose bud in a
i saucer of water."

BROWN'S ESSENCE OF JAMAICA GINGER.
VVERY valuable preparation for persons
recovering from fe\er, or other diseases,
a few drops imparting to the stomach a glow
and vigor equal to a glassful of brandy* or other
stimulants, without any of the debilitating ef
fects which are sure to follow the use of liquor
of any kind ; and it is therefore especially ap
plicable to children and females. To the aged
it will prove a great comfort ; to the dyspeptic,
and to those who are predisposed to gout and
rheumatic affections it gives great relief; and
to the inebriate, who wishes to reform, but
whose stomach is constantly craving the nox
ious liquor, it is invaluable—giving tone to the
digestive organs, and strength l-> resist tempt •
ti >n, Rnd is consequently a great agent m the
cause of temperance. For sale bv
