`or four times around his head, winding up
with a loud report of the snspper close to
the ears of the leaders.
" T—t—tl carol" accompanied this
parting salutation of his favorite bard,
and away they sprung tossing their slender
heads in the air, and flinging out their
forelegs wide, the hoofs clattering upon
the round pavements of the streets of
Providence. The rattling of the wheels,
the loud crack of the lash, which with re
peated reports still played skillfully stout
their heads and flanks, and encouraging
interjections of the coachman, momently
influencing additional fire into the spirited
animals. In a few minutes we had left
town, and were flying over the smooth
turnpike, which was the only line of com
munication either for mail or travelers be
tween that place and Boston. I had
taken my seat by the side of the driver, to
obtain the prospect of the finely culti
vated country through which our route
lay, and draw upon him for information
respecting objects we passed.
My companion, the coachman was a
finely formed athletic man about five and
twenty, with a handsome, good humored
and benevolent countenance.
Invited by his good natured physiogno
my, I entered into conversation with him.
Ile was intelligent and communicative,
and like all New Englanders in his station
in society,with a good common education.
In alluding to the subject of the projected
railroad, then in agitation, between
Boston and Providence,
ho remarked that
it might be beneficial to many, but it
would inevitably ruin all engaged in
" For my part," said he, " I don't know
what I should do if this line should be
broke up. I have been eight years come
next September driving on this route, and
this is my only means of supporting my
"Are you then married?"
" Yes, sir; I have been married for five
years and a little better, and have a little
curly headed rogue that knows almost as
much as his father, and one of the pret
tiest little babies perhaps you ever laid
your eyes on, sir."
I smiled at the naivette with which he
said this. He detected the expression of
my eye, and coloring, he shook the lines
and cracked his whip—although his team
was doing their best over the level road—
like the report of a pistol in the ears of his
bay leaders, and after a momentary pause,
" Why, I didn't mean to flatter myself
when I said it was pretty, sir; although I
do say it favors its father."
"I have no doubt that it is as lovely as
you represent," I replied, "and that,
nevertheless, if it resembles yourself."
The shades of evening were falling
around us, and we had just commenced
the ascent of a long hill clothed with
forest trees, which overhung the road, en
veloping it in gloom. The spell of twi
light had fallen upon my companion, and
in imagination he was beside his young
wife with his " little rogue" and lovely
baby upon his knee! Smidenly he turned,
and looked me full in the face, said re
spectfully, and with interest—
`• Are you married, sir, if I may be so
Poor fellow he sought for sympathy!
Alas! forlorn biped that I was then, I
had none to bestow!
"I am not," I answered; " but I can
picture the bliss of nuptial life."
care for him who shall have borne the battle, and
for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may
achieve and cherish a just and a lasting peace
among ourselves and with all nations."-4. Z.
= = I
" Allow me to say, sir, that you can
never judge rightly unless you do so from
experience•." he interrupted, with some
energy; " I never knew what it was to be
happy or enjoy life till then. I have had
more real comfort in these five years than
in all my life before. Oh, sir, if you could
see how nicely I live; there's my little
cottage just back from the road, almost
hid in the trees, the flower yard in front,
which Mary—that's my wife's name, sir
—tends herself; and the garden behind
which I cultivate myself when I am not
on the road. Oh, sir, if you could but see
the sweet smile with which Mary meets
me when I get to the house, the nice sup
per she sets for me, and hear her tell how
much she has missed me and how often
the little prattler talks about ' pa.' "
"Mary!" I mechanically ejaculated
"thou art well called Mary!"
The night set in dark, and we were near
the end of the stage route, where we were
to change horses and driver. A little vil
lage was before us, with a light twinkling
here and there from the dwellings on the
road side. The horses flew forward with
increased speed, the wheels whirled rapid
ly along the' smooth turnpike, and loud
and frequent reports of the long lash were
heard in the air over the heads of the lead
ers. We were entering the native village
of my sentimental and happy companion
upon the coach box.
"Do you see that light, sir ?" he in
quired with a tone of pleasure. I looked
in the direction indicated by his whip.
One light burned higher, brighter, and
more cheerful than the rest.
"That bright light is in Mary's win
dow,'' be said, she always sits there
waiting for my return. Now, sir, I will
gladden her heart."
And as he spoke he drew his stage horn
from a pocket in which it hung,
ing it to his lips blew a lung and cheerful
blast. The horses as if catching inspira
tion from the sound darted ahead with re
and the next moment
the coach wheels were rattling merrily
over the paved streets of the quiet little
The stage rolled along the avenue-like
street and stopped before the door of the
principal hotel. The driver dismounted,
and surrendered his box to another with
a harsh voice and vulgar manners. I e is
r • mat onceoncl determined to
no farther that night, for my curiosity
was roused to see more of my new friend.
"Coachman, ,, I said to him, "you
have created an interest iu me ; I wish to
go with you to your house ? I should be
gratified in witnessing your domestic
"Nothing would make me happier,"
he replied; " I was thinking to ask the
honor of you, yet was afraid it would be
too bold in me."
All ready, gentlemen," said the new
coachman, ascending the box. We are
waiting for you, sir."
" Pitch me my valise, driver ; I shall
go no farther to-night."
The valise, with a heavy sound, accom
panied by an oath from the driver, struck
the gallery, and with a flourish and crack
of the whip the stage rolled away from the
inn, leaving me standing beside my friend
After having engaged a room for the
night at the inn, I was in a few minutes
on my way to the cottage of the happy hus
band. A. quarter of a mile from the inn,
we turned into a narrow and shady lane,
at the termination of which, alight gleam
ed steadily—a beacon love, guiding the
married man to his young bride.
We had walked half way to the house,
when the gate of the flower garden was
thrown open, and a graceful female hasti
ly advanced towards us, her white dress
glancing in the moonlight, which was just
rising above the trees ; our figures, at the
moment, were partly concealed, aline
wholly so, in the shadow of an elm that
oversptead the path.
" Henry, is it you ?" she darted forward
and threw herself into his arms. "Two
whole days you have been gone, and I
have been so lonely. As she spoke she
drew back from his arms, which had en
circled her, to gaze into his face, her eyes
full of love, when the form of a stranger
caught her eye. I was gazing upon her
fair face in undisguised admiration ; her
beauty, softened by the moonlight, seem
"Sir, I beg your pardon," she slid,
while her blushing brow was visible, even
in the moonlight. ".Henry, why didn't
you tell me some one was with you?" she
added, with playful reproof, half ashamed
that a stranger's eye should mark the
fervor of her devotion to her husband and
We passed through the neat white gate,
along apebbly walk bordered with flow
ers, and entered the cottage, a simple
snow white dwelling, adorned with an
humble portico, half hidden in a honey
suckle and woodbine. With a curtesy I
was ushered into their happy abode. A
room on the right of the hall served the
young and frugal housewife as a sitting
noom and kitchen. The floors were snow
white, the furniture plain and neat. Sim
plicity and taste reigned over every do
mestic arrangement. Under a small
mirror placed against the wall, stood a
side-table spread with a white cloth, on
which was laid the evening meal. She
would not partake without her husband 1
The little ones had long before taken their
bread and milk and were sleeping sound
ly—"the rogue" in a crib by the side of a
bed visible in an adjoining room—the in
fant in a cradle by the table. .
I partook, with the happy pair, of their
evening meal, which remained religiously
untouched after we were seated, until the
lovely wife, sweetly and devotionally,
sought the divine blessing upon it. After
