MISS BEFORE TEENS.
DV 01LE3 M'aUIOOlM.
Mamma will you plcatc lo fprcad
A little sugar on my bread,
And momma, deafest, if you please,
To cut'a'Iittlo bit of cheese,
Just a very littlo bit)
I'm grown too largo now to be carried;
To-morrow ma, may'nt I bo married!
'Come Helen,' said Mrs. Henderson to
her daughter aged eleven, 'put up "your
beads and trinkets, and prepare for bed, it's
almost eight o'clock.'
Tndeed, ma, I cannot, afford to do any
such thing as go to bed so soon,' replied
' the young lady, 'I'm entirely too old to be
talked to in such childish language, and be
sides, Mr. Kingston is to be here, half past
tight, there's his card in the rack now"
Mrs. Henderson was dumb in astonish
mcnt for a few moments after her woman
ish daughter had done speaking and prompt
ed by curiosity, she examined the card
rack, and sure enough, the 'compliments
of Mr, George Kingston' were there in old
English letters on a beautiful embossed
card. Mr. George Kingston, had just turn
ed his thirteenth year, lie wore a stock, and
flourished a silver headed cane. Mrs. Hen
derson amused herself a short time with the
little emblem of the children's precosity,
when replacing it in the rack, -and seating
herself by Miss Helen, she resumed the
conversation, by saying "and so George
Kingston is to be hero at half past eight o'
clock, is her
'Yes ma, when he sent his card up this
morning, tho message accompanying it was
that he would be here at that hour.?
'And for what purpose?'
'Why, ma, to talk about everything like
'What sort of every thing?'
'TVhy the balls, and tho theatre, Han
nington's Dioramas, the Ravels, and
Poh, child, hush, and bustle off to bed
you are a pretty minx to talk of entertaining
a beau, with balls and. nonsense, come, off
"Minx, ma, what do you mean by that?
Do you remember that I have been to a
Yes, child, I remember that you've been
to a dancing school, there's where you met
with George Kingston I suppose.'
Yes, ma, you know there's always a
few moments leisure between the setts, and
then the ladies and gentlemen promenade
and talk about the weather and a thousand
'And what sort of pretty things do you
and Geo. Kingston talk about?'
'George Kingston! Ma, it's Mr. Kings
ton, he's as much right to be called Mr. as
any body. He rattanncd Henry Cuthbert
for slighting me in tho waltz, andItdjyV
like to hearhmseisffffl'clson! anj
IlfiUjlpose wc may expect a courtship
Courtship, indeed! we are not so foolish
as to waste time in a courtship, I can tell
you madam and if you must know it, we
have been engaged these two months.'
This was a secret worth knowing, and
Mrs. Henderson as soon as she received the
information prompted by curiosity, deter
mined to await the anivalof Mr. George
Kingston, to see how these youthful lovers
would demean themselves in her presence.
In due time tho little hero was announced
and after a few handsome flourishes of his
silver topped cane, he seated himself and
began to play the man.
'How do you like the manner in which
Miss Fustian behaved, tho other evening,
Miss Helen?' asked the infant wooer.
-'At the ball 0 horrible, she's the most
ill-behaved young lady in the world, and
she's to be married in four weeks, did you
know it, Mr. Kingston?'
-1 heard it at the theatre last night you
should have been there Miss Helen the
play was excellent, and Miss Eustaco faint

Fainted! 0 my graciousl What made'
hor faint, Mr. Kingston?'
She was affected at Virginia's being stab

"Well, I don't wonder at it, any thing at
tho thoatro looks so natural, and she's a
chicken hearted creaturd. Did vou ever

Cattawissa, June 10,1837.
To be married in tho spring, and so
young," Mr. Kingston! Why, ma says I
shant these four' years."
"She's a fortune, they say, Miss Helen,
and Henry Howell's mother says he must
strike while tho iron's hot.'
"The young lady was courted years ago,
Mr. Kingston, and her first love died she's
beeh incluncholy ever since, and some say
she's in a decline I wonder if its true?"
"I don't know indeed but the Ravels,
the Ravels, Miss Helen, they're going away
next week, and we must see them before
they leave us, when can you go Miss Helen?'
"I can't tell, exactly, Mr? Kingston, may
be Monday night, I'll ask ma, may be she'll
go with us it will be so fine to have ma go
with us. Will you go ma?"
'.'What are you talking about child? asked
the mother, lifting her eyes from a book
which she was pretending to read, though
in truth she had been a listener to all that
had been said, and a' trial it was to her to
preserve her gravity, during the very ani
mated and interesting discussion.
"Why," said Mr. George Kingston, "I
have invited Miss Helen to go and see the
Ravels again; and she requests that you
will accompany us, madam will you be
"0 yes, ma, do, it will be so fine, you
on ono side of Mr. Kingston, and I on tho
other, 1 guess Miss Fustain, and -Miss St.
Etistace would feel very flat, both their
mothers forbid their "bcaus coming to their
houses any more, and they arc obliged to
meet away from home do ma, go with us
Mrs. Henderson had been exceedingly
amused at their friendly chit chat, and she
could scarcely suppress a smile when she
remembered that "they had been engaged
thirf two months;" truly, thought she, they
will make a lovely couple, he thirteen and
she eleven, and they conversing with as
much interest and freedom as if they both
were twenty; she laid her book aside for a
moment and sobcrlv exclamcd "Well
I wonder what this world is coming to?"
The little lot T3 were completely thrown
off the track of tneir. tete-a-tete, for it was
evident that the surprise of Helen's mother
had risen from their conversation, and her
movement had too much meaning in it for
them to be mistaken. Miss Helen looked
at her mother with a fearful frown, and
Mr. George Kingston ermirged up his
shoulders &, looked towards his hat. Discre
tion on his pait, was doubtless the butter
part of valor.
For he that loves and runs away,
May live to love another day.
And after he had flourished his silver
headed cane, and pulled his walcnlrp;llar"
pocket, and adjusjw-
-lcMiss Helen, after savins: he need not bo
in a hurry, it was not late, and so on, seized
up the only light in the room, to illumine
the dark hall which Mr. Kingston, was ne
cessarily obliged to pass through to reach
the street door, and a Way they walked,
leaving Mrs. Henderson in total darkness,
where she waited until she was tired, for
the return of Miss Helen, with the light and
then followed to the door to ascertain what
the loving couple were about, and they
being thoroughly absorbed in the ecstacy of
affection did not d iscovcr that she was look
ing at them, until she had seen Mr. Kings
ton kiss Helen several times his arms
wero about her neck, and she was re.-lining
very affectionately upon his shoulders, when
the eyes of tho young swain chanced to
raise upwards and encountered the gaze of
the astonished mother.

THE announcement of a new periodical, in the

life's adjuncts oa a literary melange, possessing
variety to suit all palate, and sufficient interest to
command a lice upon the parlour table of every gen
