!his character and memory :
" Born amid the great eventsof the Revolution,
.by the death of his father, (Col. Castle, of, the
army, and a son of Mrs. Washington by a former
imarriage,) which occurred near the close of the war;
'he found his hoots during childhood and yoittb at
i Mount Vernon, where his manners were formed
after the noblestruodels ; and from the great ,
thies of' that, period „ frequent frequent guests, there, he
received impressions of wisdotia awl patriotism that
were never etfaied, A Tlnder the ceunsels of Washing
ton ins"pursued his elasSioal studies at Princeton,
and, when *Wiped by, death of his great guide
and father, (and soon after of his revered grand
mother,) he deCoted hiinself to literary and'agri
cultural pursuits on his ample estate of Arlington,
the gift, by will, of that illustrious man. lie lee
early united in marriage to Miss Mary Lee Pita
thugh, of Virginia, a lady sf unsurpassed excel
noes in all the relations of life, and whose•irre
parable loss, three years ago, he continued, with
sorrow and affectionate admiration, MIAs final day,
profoundly to deplore. One daughter (Mrs: Lee,
wife, of Col. Robert Lee, of the army) and several
grandchildren, survive him.
Mr. Custis was distinguished by an original
genius for eloquence, poetry, and the lino arts; by
a knowledge of history, particularly the history of
this dohntry,; for great powers of conversation, for
an ever-ready and generous hospitality, for kind;
ness to the poor, for patriotism, for constancy of,
friendship, and for a more than filial devotion to'
the memory and character of Washington. Ilia

The 10.15 train glided from Paddington,
May 7, 1847. In the left compartment of a
certain cant-class carriage were four pas
sengers; of these, two were worth descrip
tion. The lady had a smooth, white, delicate
brow, strongly-marked eyebrows; Icing lashes,
eyes that seemed to change color, and a good.
sized delicious mouth, with teeth as white as
milk. A man could not see her nose for - her
eyes and mouth; her own. sex could and
would have told us some nonsense about it.-
She wore an unpretending grayiali,dress, but.
toned tattle throat, with . lozenge-shaped but=
.tons, and a Scotch shawl that agreeably evaded
the responsibility of. color. She was like a
duck—so tight her plain feathei73 fitted her;
and there she sat, smooth, snug, and delicious,
;with a book in her hand, and a soupcon of her
snowy wrist just visible as she held it.
Her opposite neighbor was what I call a
good style of man—the more to his credit,
since he belonged to a corporation that fre
quently. tarns out the worst imaginable style
of young men. He was a cavalry offices,aged
twenty-live. He had a moustache, but- not a

pig-talls, on which soul is suspended like dew
on a shrub ; it was short, thick, and black as
coal. His teeth had not yetbeen turned by to,

clothes did hot stick to•nortang en him„-they

inordinate, was in his proper place, his hearty , -
not in his face, jostling mine and other peo

what oftener. hears of then meets, a young
gentleman. He was conversing in an animated
whisper with a companion, a fellow-ofticer—
they were talking about, what it is far better
not to do, women. Our friend clearly did not
wish to be overheard,for lie cast,ever and anon,
a thrtive glance at his fair ris-a-eis and low
ered his voice. She seemed completely ab
sorbed iq her book, and that reassured him.
At last the two soldiers came down to a whis
per, and in that whisper (the truth must be
told) the one who got down at Slough, and
was lost to posterity, bet ten pounds to three,
that he who was going with us to Bath :414 im
mortality would not kiss either of the ladies op
posite upon the road. "Done !" cc Done !"
Now I am sorry a man I have hitherto praised
should have lent himself, even in a whisper, to
such a speculation ; but " nobody is wise at all
hours," not even when the clock is striking
five-and-twenty ; and you are to consider his
profession, his good looks, and the tempta
tion—ten to three.
After Slough the party was reduced to
three ; at Twyford one lady dropped her hand
kerchief: Captain Dolignan fell on it like a tiger
and• returned to it like a lamb ; two or three,
words were interchanged on'-that . occasion.,
At Reading the Marlborough of - our tali. made•
one of the safe investments of that day; he,
bought a Times and a Punch ; the latter,
was full of steel-pen thrusts and wood-cuts..
Valor and beauty deigned to laugh at some in.'
fisted humbug or other punctured by Punch.
Now laughing together thaws our human ice;
long before Swindon it was a talking match—
at Swindon, who•so devoted as Captain Dolig
nan—he handed there ont--he souped them—
he tough-chickened them—he brandied and
cochinealed one, and he brandied and burnt
sugared the other; on their return to their
carriage, one lady passed into the inner corn
partment to inspect a certain gentleman's seat
on that side the line.
Reader, had it been you or I, the beauty
would have stayed with us till all was blue,
ourselves included ; not more surely does our
slice of bread and butter, when it escapes from
our hand, revolve it ever so often, alight face
downwards on the carpet. But this was a bit
of a fob, Adonis, dragoon—so Venus remained
tete-a-tete with him. You have seen a dog
meet an unknown female of his species; how
handsome, how
.empresse, how expressive he
becomes; such was Dolignau after Swindon,
and to do the dog justice he got handsomer
and handsomer; and you have seen a cat con
scious of approaching cream, such was Miss
Haythorn ; she became demurer and demurer.
Presently our captain looked out ot the window
andlaughed ; this elicited an inquiring look
from Miss Haythorn. “We are only a mile from
the Box Tunnel."
"Do you always laugh a mile from the Box
Tunnel 1" inquired the lady.
" Invariably."
"What for 1"
"Why, hem! it's a gentleman's joke."
"Oh! I don't mind it's being silly if it makes
me laugh."
Captain Dolignan, thus encouraged, re
counted to Miss Haythona the following: A
lady and bar husband sat together going
through the Box Tunnel. Thero was ono gen
tleman opposite,
and it was pitch dark. After
the tunnel had been passed through, the lady
said: " George, how absurd of you to salute
mo going through- the tunnel !" "I did no
such thing!" " You didn't 7" "No !
why /". " Why, because somehow I thought
you did 1"
Hero Captain Dolignan laughed, and en
deavored to lead his companion to laugh, but
it was not to be done.
The train entered the tunnel.
Miss Haythorn. "Ah
Dolignan. " What is the matter?"
Miss Haythorn. "I am frightened."
Dolignan, (moving to her side,) " Pray do
not be alarmed, I am near you.".
Miss Haythorn. .g You . are near me, very
near me indeed, Captain Dolignan."
Dolignan. "You know my name I"

For all this pile walked and walked, till all the

She stopped, blushed, and neither acknow-
ledged nor disowned his acquaintance. He
blushed, stammered out how ashamed he was,
how he deserved to be punished, - how he Weil
punished, how -little she knurl:tow unkappy
he was; and concluded by begging her not to
let all the world know the disgrace of a man
who was already mortified enough by the loss
of her . acquaintance. She asked an explana- -
tion. He told her of the 'action that had been
commenced in her 'name. She gently shrugged
her shoulders, and said, Row stupid- they
are I" Emboldened by this, he begged to
know whether or not a life of distant unpre
tending devotioh would, after a lapse of
years, erase the memory of his madness—his
crime I
" She did not know I"
"She inuat , now bid hint adieu, as she had
some preparstions to make for s hall in the
crescent, tyhere everybody uiat, to be. They
parted, and Dolignan determined' to - the

to. Miss Haythorn, and he danced with her.- Her
manner was gracious. , With *wonderful tact
of her sex, she, seemed to hive commenced the
acquaintance that evening. That night; forthe
first time, Dolignan was in love. I will spare
the reader all-a lover's arts, by which he suc
ceeded in dining where she dined, in dancing
where she danced, in overtaking. her by acci
dent when she rode. His devotion followed
her even to church, where our dragoon was re
warded by learning there isa world where they
neither polk nor smoke—the two capital abomi
nations of this one.
He made acquaintance with her uncle, who
liked him, and he saw at last, with joy, that her
eye loved. to dwell upon him when she thought
he did not observe her. '
It was 'three month, lla the Box Tunnel
that Captain Dolignan called one day upon
Captain Ilaytliorn, R.N., whom he had met
twice In his life, and slightly propitiated by
violently listening to a cutting-out expedition ;
he called, and, in the usual way, asked permis
sion to pay his addresses telfis dabghter. The
worthy Captain straightway began doing Quar
ter Deck, when suddenly he was summoned
from the apartment by a mysterious message.
On his return he announced,tvith a total change
of voice, that "It was all right, and his visiter
might run alongside as soon as he chose."
My reader has divined the, truth; this nau
tical commander, terrible to the foe, was in
complete and happy subjugation to his daugh
ter, our heroine.
As he was taking leave, Dolignsu saw his
divinity glide into the drawing-room. - He fol
lowed her, observed a sweet consciousness that
encouraged him; that consciousness deepened
into confusion: she tried to laugh; she cried
instead, and then she smiled again ; and when
be kissed her hand at the door, it was
" George" and "Marian," instead of Captain
this and Miss the other. A reasonable time
after this, (for my tale is merciftd, and skips
formalities and torturing delays,) these two
were very happy; they were once more upon
the railroad, going to enjoy their honeymoon
all by themselves. - Marian Dolignan was
dressed just as before, duck like and delicious,
all bright except her clothes; but George sat
beside her this time instead of opposite, and
she drank him in gently from under her long
eye-lashes. Marian," said George, "mar
ried people should tell each other all. Will
you ever forgive use if I own to you—no--"
"Yes! yes ! "
, g Well, then! you remember the Box Tun
nel ?" (this was the first allusion be hattven
tured to it.) lam ashamed to say I had bet
£3 to £lO with White I would kiss one of you
two lathes," and George, pathetic externally,
chuckled within.
"I know that, George; I overheard yea ; "
was the demure reply.
"Oh!you overheard me 7 impossible."
"And did you not hear me whisper to my
companion ? I made a bet with her."
"You made a bet ? how singular! What
was it ?"
"Only a pair of gloves, George."
" Yes. I know, but what about it 7 "
" That if you did you should be my husband,
" Oh! but stay; then you could not have
been so very angry with me, love. Why, dear
est, then who brought that action against
me ? "
Mrs. Dolignan looked down.
"I was afraid you was forgetting ne !"
" Sweet angel why here is the Box Tun
nel !"
Now reader—fie! no! no such thing! You
can't expect to be indulged in this way every
time you come toil dark place; besides, it is
not the thing. Consider, two sensible mar
ried people; no such phenomenon, I assure
you, took place. No scream rued in hope
less rivalry of the engine—ibis time !
