by my parents t&-settle for life, as by the death of
an elder brother, it had become evident the t they
must depend upoii,r , ne for support, in their declin
ing years; but the aspect ofthe .times forbid such
an -event. "The peace of Campo Formeo, proved
to be.nothhig-but a hollow truce; and the lapse of a
few months saw-Europe again in arms.' A true
subject of the empire, I hastened to its standard ;
and from the defeat of the Austrains, at Marengo,
to the close of that disastrous campaign, by the re
treat of the - imperial army, from Italy, I was in al.
most every engagement. - and was twice severely
wounded. The last was in a desperate struggle
near Trent, when I received a musket ball in my
arms broken, by. another shot at the same moment.
As my wounds were deemed mortal, I was
left on the ground until the contest was over, when
it was found that I was still living : amf I was im
mediately carried to the hospital, and my wounds
properly attended to. I had an uncle who lived
near - Cris, on the Danube, above Mina: and -as
soon as I was'able to be Moved, I requested that
I might be moved thither---a -request readily grant

I requested. permission to join my corps in the

of Italy. The application was refused, but it was
accompanied with a most complimentary note,
from the ,yeteran Wurmser, %% ho had witnessed the
affair that came so near closing my military career,
assuring me that, whenever in health wits suffi

cause I had contracted an a% ersion to the society
in the neighborhood of thy uncle ; and having once
been suject to the usual routine of receiving and
paving their visits, 1 declined any further acquain
tance with them as much as possible. ,
Have you heard the news I" said my uncle to
me one morning as we sat down to coffee.
•" Certainly not ; what can it be ?" I eagerly in
quired : fur the situation of the aunies was such,
that they were daily expecting important inteli

the subject to which he had alluded.

At this instant the .servant opened e door,

years of age, entered the room.

It cannot be thought of." rephed Louisa; " she
has been too kindal,l attached: a servant to me, to
be refused any favor .slie may request ; so saying,
taking the-little gill's hand she left the parlor.
N , ) sooner had Louisa departed on her errand of
kimitiess..than Lowerttlorff, resumed his narrative.
"My uncle," said he, "did not press the subjett i he
had mentioned,. as he found it was so little interest

again by any one, while the coversation turned on
the probable issue of the campaign. Two days

day to the sports of the field to which I was so

the scarcely inhal , iied and picturesque country,

soon out of sight I thought no more on the matter.
I was now, however. roused from my reverie, by
the near trampling of a horse ; and thinking it pos
sible it might be some of the party I had sego,
I looked up, and saw that the person who had
thus bro4errrity'on. ray solitude and musing, was a
young femalk,mourned on a fine - black steed,

nence,- whichied to the spot wher . I was laying.
A few specks of foam from his bits were. scattered
over his breast but he obeyed the le - t. touch of the
bridle, and moved as if conscious and proud of the
burden he supported. No • sooner had the 14r
huntress appmablied hear enough to permit me to
examine her features attentively, Otani was instant
ly struck with her youthful appearance and her
beauty. She no sooner discovered me than I rose
to my kiet and in an instant she had 'checked the
noble beast on which she rode. and he was stand
ing beside _me. There was a rich glow upon her
countenance, caused by the morning's exercise--
a few curls were floating loosely around her neck
—her eyes were sparkling with animation—and
flinging me the reins of her horse, she sprang - from
her seat without the least ceremony, and with the
lightness and grace of a fan-v. To me she seemed
more enchanting than any being I had ever before
seen, and a second glance convinced me that I was
not mistaken in. my first impressions.
" 1 believe I have lost my way," said she smil
ing. as she loosened the ribbons that confined her
bonnet, and threw it back, "and i must press 'you
into my services, as my dutiful knight errant, to
extricate myself from this difliculyy."
" Every order that commands me to be near
I shall obey with pleasure," was my reply.

of the refreshing waters,
" You, too, have been playing the truant, I per
ceive," said the lady, as she noticed my fine dog
and my gun
"The morning was too inviting," I answered,
" to be vasted in duller pursuits:" and dinging the
reins over a dry branch, I seated myself near her
on the green bank.
•• I have been so long accustomed to a city life,"
said thelively girl, " that I had aduost forgotten
the pleasure I used to receive from traversing these
desolate tracts, and breathing there air of these
mountain regions: and I felt rattle : b.saward when

I find myself here."
For myself, I esteem it a fortunate occurencii,,
since it has procured me a pleasure unexpected,
and therefore. in these solitudes doubly welcome,"
was my reply..
" Philosophy says it is not ih courts or camps
that we are to look for happiness," replied the ami
able girl ; " and if the sources of it are within our
selves, why may 'it not be as successfully sought
and enjoyed in solitude as iii a crowd ?"
"There no good reason assigned'why it
may not,'' I replied ; yet in society, if not in the
crowd, we are accustomed to look for it in its grea
test perfection."
" If society was always 4-omposed of such indi
viduals as weitirselves should sclqct, it would tm-
doubtedly be preferred by every one ; but it too of
ten happens that in society we are compelled to
endure, instead of being permitted lo enjoy," he

she was unhappy; yet as I gazed Kinn tlfebeauti

_that was not of the most ethereal and heavenly or

artless innocence and love.

" You are an imperial officer," said she, as she
walked by my side.
_/ How have you made such a discovery ?" I in
quired with a smile.
" 0, we women are inquisitive," she answered,
'laughing; "do you think I would have entrusted
myself in your hands, nay, more, have,t4eri you
into my service as I have done, had I. "riot, at first
sight, determined what you were !" Since you
have gussed at what I am, may I inquire who you
are ? I asked the lively girl -
" Yes, if you and I will answer as if at

It is so, - she answered - , " and I could now ea
sily find the way thither, but I am not• disposed to
part so quickly." •
These words were accompanied with a mearkag
look, but were spoken in such a careless manner,
that I could scarcely divine their' meaning. In all
doubtfulcases we make such inferences as we de
sire : and .so I. did in this case.
" I hate no disposition to break the bonds , you
haveiso.playfully imposed upon me," replied 1, in
lier"rmn pianner ; "there are some cases in which

is a mark of wisdom to correct them," said I satil

closer-in mine.
"They - may be incarrect ; but it must take some
time to - remove impressions so deply rooted as

At Ihakinstant we saw two horsemen galloping
over the hills, in a direction towards us, although
at a considerable distance.

" Well let that pass," answered Louisa, '• I be
lieve I got rather bewildered; and had it not been
for this gentleman, whom I introduce to you as
Col. Lowendorff, the hero of Arcola and Trent, I
must, for aught I know, have wandered here until
!iouisa's brother advanced and took my hand,
expre‘sing the pleasure he felt at the meeting; but
the Count took no further notice of the introduction,
or of me, than a distant bend of his biodya slight
nod of the head—which was retnmed by me with
art air as cool and

Young Stienbei„ - g was about two years ' older than
his sister,,arrd a tine looking young man. " I am

I answered. • were it not uncertain when I shall

I rmsci.l my eyes to Miss Stienberg. and saw that
though .the Count was apologizing to her with great
g,allautry, he was unheard, and our conversation
listened to with great interest.

Croats, defended the causeway of Arcola, against
the whole French army; have I the honor of see

" He is before you," said young Stienberg.
" I understood he was killed at Trent," said the
" Not quite sobad as that," replied Louisa; "but

on my forehead, as she playfully raised the curls,

narrow escape from the effects of his wounds."
"It is the• chance of war," said the Count, cool

whispered—cold blooded brute !"
"We shall expect you to morrow," said young
Stieuberg, as I placed his sister on her paltry, and
kissing her hand to me, she and the Count were
soon rapidly leaving us—" and perhaix your walk

- • I thanked him for his kindness, but declined his
offer; and I soon bade him adieu, as with my new
train of imaginations I commenced my return to
the hospitable mansion of my uncle:

That night I felt disposed to sleep but little, and
that little was to dream-over again my inthniew
with the beliutiful huntress. Men mho have never
loved, may sneer—prudes may scornfully curl their
lips with disdain—but I can safely aver, that of all
the setisattonsof life, there is none. SO thrilling, so
etheral, so extatic, as those which come over the
bosom in its first and earliest love. It is then pure
and free from those debasing ingredients—those
unworthy motives, which so often, in after life.
have their influences in deciding our destinies.—

experience, cold and chilling,

us, that every thing that is not based on more solid
foundations than those of fancy or imagination, will
speedily disappear before its penetrating analysis.
and charm dissolving touch. But love ) pure and
rational—founded on mutual sympathies, and en
dearment, and cherished as a sacred flame from
heaven, will burn with unwavering 111'J:it, when
hope itself Aorsakes us. Such, at least, are my Mel
ings, and such my belief.
The next day much to the surprise of my good
uncle, I announced my intention.of,visiting Stien
berg nor was it long before - I found myself
there. I was more and more charmed with Loui

to her father's mansin. There was so much frank

that she fascinated all and governed the imperinm

with me she was unreserved—l felt that I posses•

days passed away without coming to an explana

tale telling eyes. deep and mysterious wads of
of hope. which I would not have exchanged fur
sceptres. When others were present, she was the
same gay and reckless girl, though there were me
meats of deep teeing mingled with her gayest

tincture of sadness which carne over her at times,
