.A. GOOD STORY.
THE PLAIN LOVER.
I was a coquette. Many a lover's
heart I had lacerated by refusing his
otter of marriage, after 1 had lured
him on to a declaration. My last vic
tim's came was James Frazer. He
was a tali, awkward, homely, ungain
ly man, but his heart was as steel. I
respected him highly, and felt pained
when I witnessed his anguish at iny
rejection of him. But the fact was, I
had myself iallen in love with Captain
Elliot, who had been unremitting in
his devotion to me.
Mr. James Frazer warned me against
Elliot; but I charged him with jeal
ousy, and look his warning as an in- j
A few days afterwards Elliot and 1
were engaged, and my dream of ro
mantic love seemed to be 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 u
litelong darkness, and bondage from
which there is no escape. Thank God,
I was nof so miserable as they !
My mother was a widow in good
circumstances, but having vert* bad
health. She was also of an easy, list
less 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,
especially as he had served in the Cri
mea and India and won medals. His
regiment was quartered in our neigh
borhood, and he had tho reputation of
being one of the wealthiest, as he was
certainly the handsomest officer in it
[ remember well the day we became
engaged. He was on duty, but bad
managed to ride over to our house in
his uniform, and while we were walk
ing in the garden 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 assurrac.ce that the ma
ternal consent hafl been readily given.
My dear mother, hated trouble, and
she moreover loved me tenderly; 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.
Well, a week passed quite delight
fully as I' have said; and at the expi
ration of this there might have been
seen an equestrian party winding
through our old Devonshire woods and
quiet country roads. Elliot and I ied
the cavalcade. I rode my own beau
tiful brown Bess. Captain Elliot was
mounted on a handsome black horse
that had been sent him from London
Following us was a bevy of merry
girls and their cavaliers; and among
them was tall, awkward and silent Jas
Frazer. His presence had marred all
the pleasure of rny ride, and I was glad
to bo in advance of them all that I
might not see hi in
And as we rode on through the
woods, and 1 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
battie and compel all men to recognize
the claims of his peerless love. \ ery
eloquent he spoke of the inspiration ot
love, of the brave deeds and perilous
exploits it bad prompted, wishing
again and again that he might pro
claim and maintain his love before the
world. It pleased me to listen to this
and to believe it sincere, though 1
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 tell at the leet ol
brown Bess. With a bound and a
spring that nearly unseated me. she
Struggling to retain my seat, I had
no power to check her, and even as
she flew the fear and madness of the
moment grew upon her. I could only
cling breathlessly to the mane and bri
dle, and wonder helplessl}* where this
mad gallop was to end. She swerved
from a passing wagon, and turned into
a path that led to the river. In the
sudden movement the reins had been
torn from my hands and I could not
regain them. I clung to the mane and
closed my eves, that I might not be
hold the fate that awaited me. How
sweet was life in those precious mo
ments 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
us he saw me lying, mangled 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
I remembered no more. I felt a sud
den shock, fearful rushing through the
air, and knew no more until days after
ward, I woke to a faint, weak sem-
blauce ot life iu my chamber at home.
I never saw Captain Elliot again,
ihe last words I ever heard from his
lips were those of knightly*daring.—
I he 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 disaster from afar,
and us soon as he saw me lifted from
the shallow bed of the river, into
which I had been thrown when my
frightened horse stopped suddenly on
its banks, to ride hastily off. That
evening he sent to make inquiries and
learning that I was severely, but it
was hoped not fatally, injured, he
thenceforth contented himself with
such tidings of my condition and im
provement as could be gained from
At last it was known that I would j .
never recover entirely from the effects i
of my injury, and that very day Cap I
tain Elliott departed suddenly from '
the neighborhood. He made no at- j
tempt to see me, nor sent ine any fare
well. When I was once more abroad, i
beginning, though with much unal- j
loyed bitterness, to learn the lesson of j
patience and resignation that awaited
me, I received a letter from him, in j
which he merely said that he presum-1
ed try own judgment had taught ine, ;
that in my altered circumstances, our ]
engagement must come loan end? hut j
to satisfy his own sense of honor (his
honor!) he wrote to say while enter i
taining the highest respect for me he \
desired a formal renunciation of my
claim. Writing on the bottom of this I
letter, "Let it be as you wish," I re
turned it to him at once, and thus end- j

ly conduct on that day, but now I first ,

And I learned that James Frazer, his j

which Brown Bess tore away from I

ridden alter me, and been the first to j
lift me from the water. Many times ]
daily he made inquiries concerning
me; his had been the that sent
the rare flowers that had decked my
room : his were the lips that breathed
words of cointort and hope to 1113' poor
mother; his were the books that I read

utterly untenable, my theory that

Alas i'or the summer! The grass is j
still verdant OQ the hiils and in the val |
leys; the foliage of the trees is as dense
as ever, and as green; the flowers are
abundant along the margin ot the riv
er, and in the hedge-rows, and deep
among the woods; the days, too, are as
fervent as they were a month ago;and
yet, in every breath of wind, and in
every beam of sunshine, there is an
autumnal influence. I know not how
to describe it. Mothinks there is a
sort of coolness amid all the heat, and
a mildness in the brightness of the sun
shine. A breeze cannot stir without
thrilling me with the breath ot Au
tumn, and I behold its pensive glory in
the far, golden gleams among the long
shadows of the trees. The flowers—
even the brightest of them—the gold
en-rod and the gorgeous cardinals—the
most glorious flowers of the year —
have this gentle sadness amid their
pomp. Pensive Autumn is expressed
in the glow of every one of them. I
have felt this influence earlier in some
years than in others. Sometimes Au
tumn may be perceived in the early
days of July T . There is no other feel
ing like that caused by this faint,
doubtful, yet real perception, or rather
prophecy of the year's decay, so deli
ciously sweet and sad at the same time.
Confeds. in England.
Concerning noted Confederates in
England, a late London letter remarks:
•Gen. Breckinridge, with his family,
has just arrived in London from Cana
da. The Ex General and Secretary of
War of the Confederacy looks old and
careworn, and seems to have lost the
dignity which characterized him when
he presided over the Senate of the U.
S. lie comes to look alter some lunds
which are supposed to have been smug
gled away by some of the rebel agents.

A Lut) Volunteer Nurse In Hie
The London Lancet tells us of a very
young and very fair girl who, from the
beginning ot the epidemic cholera,
passed her time, moving from bed to
bod, in ceaseless efforts to comfort and
relieve in a scene of suffering and of
death sufficient to try the stoutest
heart. She offered her help ut a time
j when, from the sudden inroad of cases,
i such assistance was urgently required,
and nobly has she discharged her self
: taught duty. Wherever the need is
j greatest and the work hardest there
j she is to be seen, toiling until her
I limbs almost refuse to sustain her
One of the effects of her presence has
been that the nurses have been ericour
: aged by her never-failing energy and
j eheeriness, so that thej dread ot dis
! case has been lost in efforts to combat
I it. This is an instance of devotion

"He Shall Eat the Fruit."
A blacksmith had in his possession,
but under mortgage, a house and piece
of land. Like many others, he was at
one time fond of the social glass, but
was happily induced by a fried to join
the temperance society'. About three
months after he observed his wife one
morning busily employed planting rose
bushes and fruit trees.
" Mary," said he, " I have owned
this cot for five j'ears, and yet I have
never known you before to improve or
ornament it in this manner."
"Indeed," replied the smiling wife,
" I had no heart to do it until you gave
up the drink. I had often thought of
it before, but I was persuaded that,
should I do it, some struuyers would
pluck the roses and eat the fruit.
Now, with God's blessing, this cot will
j be ours, and we and our children may
I expect to enjoy the produce. Me shall
j pluck the roses and eat the fruit."
Boys (sing Tobacco.
A strong and sensible writer says a
good, sharp thing, and a true one, too,
for boys who use tobacco. It has ut
terly ruined thousands of boys. It
tends to softening and weakening of
the bones, and it greatly injures the
brain, the spinal marrow and the whole
nervous fluid. A boy who smokes
early and frequently, or in any way
uses large quantities of tobacco, is nev
er known to make a man of much en
ergy, and generally lacks muscular
and physical as well as mental power.
We wouid particularly warn boys who
want to be anything in the world, to
shun tobacco as a most baneful poison.
It injures the teeth. It produces an
unhealthy state of the throat and lungs,
hurts the stomach and blasts the brain
ifegr We have listened to many effec
tive arguments in favor of total absti
nence, but we have never heard oue
more exhaustive than that of the hon
est German who was asked to speak
at a meeting of the friends of total ab
stinence. As to the precise locality of
this meeting our readers are at liberty
to exercise their guessing faculties. —
After some hesitation, he arose and
said : " I shall tell you bow it vas; I

There was very much pains in all mine

from the moral prospects of the ques

The next greatest number was killed

A Ferocious Moni'ic. —There is a

thirty years has not stood erect, lie
