-The sommerride was waning into autumn, ',and
the squire of Ambermead faded more gradually
than autumn leaves, When late one evening a way.
firer stopped at hy. Canute's cottage, which was
on the roadside, and requested petmussibn to rest,
asking for a draught of water from the well before
the porch.
"Most welcome," said Two Words, scanning
the stranger, and pleased with his appearance, for
youth and an agreeable countenance are sure pass
ports; perhap4, too, Mr. Canute discerned gentle
breeding in his guest, despite travel-soiled habili
ments, and a dash of habitual recklessidess in his
air. At any rate, the welcome was heartily given,
and as heartily tesponded to; and when Mr Ca.
note telt his dwelling, in order to pay his usual
evening visit at the Hall, he merely said, addres
sing hie young visitor, " Soon back;" and turning
to Martha, the' catch)! housekeeper, added, " Get
supper ;" while on stepping over the threshold,
second thoughts urged him to return and.say to the
young man " Don't go."
" No, that I won't," replied he, frankly, " for I
like my quarters too will I'll wait rill you come
back, governor? and l hope you won't be long,
for my mouth waters for the supper you spoke
Mr Canute smiled, and walked away more
briskly than usual; and after sitting for some time
beside the sick man's bed. and bidding "good
night" and '• bless you'. to Clara Harwell, he re.
traced his steps homewards, and land supper
ready, and the handsome stranger so obviously rea
dy to do justice to the trugal fare, that Mr Canute
jocularly remarked, "Keen air ;" to which the
st. anger replied in the same *cram, " Fine scenery;"
on which the host added, "An artist?" when the

subside, tie continued, " Are you always so econo

difficult to carry on conversation in this tarair.!"
" You don't," replied Mr. Canute smiling, an.
imperturbably good-natured.
Not 1 cried the youth; " and I want to ask
Stu a half a hundred questions. Will you answer
me !"
" try," replied Mr. Canute.
" I've not long to stay, for I'm on a walking tour
( with a friend; but I diverged to Ambermead, as I
was anxious to see it. I'•e had a curiosity to see
it for a tong while ; but my triend is wailing for

and I shall strike across the country whim the moon

repeating anxiously and inquiringly, as he wander
ed on in the moonlight, - the two strangely-sugges

toilsome night's journey for that belated traveller;
for he had left Mr Canute's cottage so hastily, that
he had omitted to ask fa certain landmarks on the
hilts leading to the place whither be was bound..L
In consequence, the stars faded in the sky, and the
rosy morn broke through the eastern mists, ere the
weary man, front the summit of a high hilt which
be had tortuously ascr?ded, beheld afar off, down
in the valley, the shi ing river, the bridge,-and the
church tower of the twn where hie friend, in smite
anxiety, awaifed his reappearance.
During all his that young man never
forgot the solitary night Walk when he lost his way

night-breeze seemed to whisper in his ear, " And

sought respecting the inmates of Ambermead Ha
but he had laid bare his own lolly for the inspec

to no reproof—no tiresome lecture vouchsafed from
proaV age to ardent youth, but simply two words
had penetrated his heart. and set. him a thinking
seriously. Mystic little wonla ! " And then"?'
For nearly three years after Mr norm ell's de
cease, the old Hall, contrary to general anticipation,
remained untenanted, save by domestic lett in
charge. Miss Clara hail found shel•er wi.h her re

still fresh and warmly Cheri-lied among the hum

proprietor, was soon expected to take posses

he was on the point of marriage, and that his young
bride would accompany him. 11l reports fly
quickly ; and it had been circulated in farmer times
hat Mr Selby was wild and extravagerit, careless
of others, selfish and profligate. Indeed, Mr. Ca
mute had not contradicted such reports, so it was
generally opined they were too true, and had a le- '
gal foundation. Wi'h heavy hearts, the inhabitants
of Ambermead commenced their rural preparations
for the reception of the squire and his bride : green
arches were erected, and wreaths of flowers were
_bung on the spreading branches, beneath which
the travellers' road lay. It was the season of roses
and nightingales, when Ambermead was in its glo

Mr. Canute stood at his cottage door ; the bridge
just beyond, over which the mute conducted to the
Hall through avenues of greenery, was festooned
with roses; and a band of maider.s in white fined
the picturesque approach. The itan was setting,
when a carnage drove' quickly up, slackening its
pace as it emoted the bridge, and stopping at Mr .
