Edith Hasseldcn.-as much as such a heart
ever'.oves; she wasyouhg and beautiful, and
that gratified his pride; sho loved him, and
that pleased his vanity.
He had kept his appointment with her
and the moment of parting had arrived
They were sitting on a garden bench, botl
appeared sorrowful, his arm was round her,
an i he whispered words of love, & hopes
lof future happiness-

They parted; and oh! how tho fond girl
cherished the memory of that nartmtr scene
and the words he had uttered; for days' af
terwards she fancied that sho could still hear
lis voice floating round hor could still
feel tho pressure of his hand as ' he passed

thought that they had parted forever! that
the voice and hand would henceforth bo

one who would outrage them; those feelings,
which the heart entertains but once; which
we would give empires worlds, to enter
He had promised to write to hor, and
had broken that promise! Edith counted
the hours each day, until the post was de
livered, with a wild and throbbing heart, but
each day proved him more forgetful. At
length, strange rumors reached her 6X ah
approaching marriage, between Horace Sea-
ton and a young lady in Paris, of great for
tune. They crushed and chilled her spirit
and the gay the liappy Edith, was no
We will not wo cannot describe her
feelings, when first she heard these tidings;
she treated them as base calumny! she
wrote to hiin; her letter was unanswered!
Shcaccidently met an acquaintance, who
had just returned from France, and from him
she learnt that it was too true. He had
been for some weeks married! She heard
it with calm and. composed countenance
but a withered, blighted, breaking heart;
The three years had elapsed, and Edith
Ilesselden stood gazing from her casement
upon the lake below, while the soft moon
shone in unclouded loveliness. The next
day was her marriage day. A gentleman,
named Forlescurc, had seen and adn.irjd
her: love is too strong a word; He admi
red her beauty, was not repulsed by her
coldness, and, after a few months acquain
tance, obtained a cool, careless consent front
her, to become his wife. She was strange
ly altered; not the buoyant, enthusiastic
girl, with looks and thoughts equally fresh
and glowing; she had become the calm, un-
inipassioned, dignilied woman; Tears
had washed every trace of rose from her
cheek, and what with her paleness, and
the constant repression of every feeling on
uer countenance, sne had acquired tue ap
pearance of one of Conovay's statues; cold,
yet wonderfully beautiful.
nl . l . t
one stoou sometime at tier casement in
deep thought at length she murmured, 'It
must be!" and turning from the window
seated herself at a dcisk, from whence she
removed a; small packet of letters. She
trembled violently as she rose and walked
towards the lire at the end of tho room
She held them over the flame for an instant,
and in the next they were burning.
"So perish all rcmemberance of him,"
Again she walked towards the window,
and took from her bosom a minature; she
appeared collecting courage to destroy that
also. A pang shot over her heart as she
gazed upon the picture. She pressed it
convulsively to her lips; and bitter tears, in
spile of her desperate effort to repiess them,
uurt tortn in torrents, as u Irom a source
long pent up; she passed her hand over her
brow as if to ease its burning pain. "I
cannot, oh no, no! I cannot destoy his
picture," she s.id again, and she looked on
it long and fixedly: dreams of other days
flitted before her, and she sobbed as if her
heart would burst'
But this emotion passed away; she was
again still and calm, and beautiful as Patian
marble. Sho unclasped tho lock of-tho
chain which supported the minature of IIo
race Seaton again she gazed4upon itr The
thought that at that time to-morrow it would
be guilt or her so to gaze, came across her
mind, and she resolved, though she could
not destoy, never again to behold it.
Sho placed it in a paper which she carefully
sealed, and 'Ricked jih.her'dqsk.; , , . , .
'fJow, then, thank Heaven, it is over,
and I ahull become another's without one
thought of him lingering in my bteast,"
she murmured, but the tone of misery and
utter' desolation was In contradiction to "her
words. . -
It was morning, and Edith was arrayed
iti her bridal dress, Not tho quivering of
a lip, not tho trembling of an; eye-lid be
trayed what was passingin her heart. She
walked steadily up the aisle of the church;
she uttered the responses in a low yet' audi
ble voice but this calm was unnatural,
and was soon, to be destroyed.
The ceremony was nearly over, and For-
tcseuc took her hand upon which he was
to place the wedding-ring. lie started at
the death-like coldness, and was surprised
to see a jewelled one which he had noticed
her constantly wearing, was not removed.
She had forgotten that. And noi'v the re
collection of the vow she had made never
to let another remove it than he who, howt
ever false he had proved,, was still Horace
Seaton the playmate of her childhood, the
idol of her first affections, flashed upon
lier. The long, long interval, of weary days
and sleepless nights, and wasted years, fa
ded away, and she remembered only their
parting hour and his parting words, "I will
replace it with another at the altar!" At
this moment the bridegroom attempted to
withdraw the r.ng; but it was too niuch, the,
bow was overb'ent and snapped; it was the
last feather that broke the camel's back,
and this last stroke overcome poor fragile
'Never! never!" she murmured, as she
struggled to release her hand. In the strug
gle the ring was removed, and fell on the
marble steps of the altar. She gazed upon
it for a moment, in speechless misery, and
then a loud wild scream escaped her; so
loud, so wild, that the hearers felt the blood
run cold in their hearts. She fell. For
icscue thought she had fainted, and he raised
her head from the floor, but it fell heavily
on his arm. He shuddered; the color had
forsaken her lips, those bright, beautiful
eyes were closed for ever; Edith Ilessel
den was dead!
The following from the London Sport
ing Alagazine for August, furnishes a stri
king instance of good luck:
The late Luke White, the celebrated
Irish millionaire, commenced life as an er
rand boy to a book stall, and finished it by
representing in his own person and those
of his three sons, four counties in Parlia
ment; Having succeeded in scraping to
gether as much as enabled him to pur
chase a few pamphlets, as trifles of sta
tionary, he tied a wallet to his back and
set up himself as a pedlar. His tour per
formed, and his merchandise disposed of,
he turned his steps once more towards
Dublin, to replenish his knapsack and add
to his store. When some thirty miles
short of his destination, he retired into a
field adjoining the high road, to dine off a
crust, and wash it down from tho rivulet
upon whose banks his humble meal had
been made. That over, he renewed his
journey, arriving towards the evfinm'g of
the following day at his destination. The
succeeding morning saw him sally forth in
quest of new merchandize, when lo! his
bitter-won earnings were gone! The grca
sy canvass bag, his then strong box, had
vanished, and he was again a beggar
Almost in despair, his desperate search
was made' in the cellar wherein he had
slept, but in vain; at length the idea fla'she'd
upon him, "could he have dropped it where,
by the river side, ho had dined and stooped
to drink from the stream?" Instantly the
road was rctraced,'and at the end of tho fifth
day, half starved and dead with travel, the
bag and its contents were found upon the
brink of a public path, within a few yards
of the turnpike road. After this, it is not
surprising that in a few years we find him
in prosperous business as a bookseller in
Dublin'. It was during the period when
the mania for lottery speculation was at its
height. Like dtlicrs in his line, he dealt
in tickets, and, upon the particular occa
sion to which this alludes, he had disposed
of all his shares, save two half tickets, which
he was in the act oT enclosing back, as un
sold,- to London, when' young woman cn-
tcrcd his shop anil inquired for a sixteenth
, He told her how tho case' stood, that ho
had but two halves remaining, which he
was about sending off af that moment
After interchanging some badinage, 'Come,
said tho biblidpolc, "you shall buy one of
tho halves and I will keep the other, and
should the ticket turn up to be a prize, wo
will marry and join ourselves and our tick
ets together.' So it was; and tho ticket
was a twenty thousand pound prize, and
they -were married, the ftultofthc union
being the thrc'o senators already spoken of.

Declaration of the reclaimed Infidel.
Dr. John E. Coohu, Professor of the The
ory and Practice of Physic in. Transylvania
University, though once a member of the
infidel corps, thus concludes an Introduclo
ry Lecture to n medical Class:
"I unhesitatingly say, not only that I am
perfectly convinced of the truth of the
Christian Itcvelation, from a close and pa
tient examination of its claims on the testi
mnny presented, but that I believe that
belter testimony could not be offered, could
not be devised in support of it, arid that no
man is left unconvinced, who has given
the subject a thorough investigation, unless
he is kept from it by a state of mind the
most deplorable which wo ean eoriceive, a
state of enmity against the God that made
him, and the Saviour who redeomed him
not letting him come to the light, because
his deeds are evil."

THE INFLUENCE OF WOMAN, ,
May be illustrated by,' the same beautiful
figure which an elegant writer has applied
to anothor subject., . It is like the beautify
ing effect of concealed but bountiful springs,
silently and unperccivedly irrigating the
hill side and the meadow, and making the
andscapc smilo with a power as bencfi-
eient and silent as it is potent; visible only
in its effect, Wiicn we draw woman for
ward into the public eye, and constant pub
lic collision with the stormy elements which
constitute society, the same notoriety which
robs her of her character defrauds her of
her influence. "Monsters are admired,
and not esleemcd." People may like,
from curiosity, or from admiration of tal
ent, wherever it dcvclopes itself, to listen
the language of talented women hut
i arc not those among whom the wise
look for partners of their joys, their cares,
and their sorrows. .When we speak thus,
we Would not bar from our affections tho
female who possesses genius and cultiva
tion. When sho makes her natural and ac
quired ability the ornament of her fireside,
and the charm of the social circle, woman
is doubly dear, and doubly enc'ianting.
How blest may be the lot of woman!
Engrossed in cares which carry their own'
reward with them, her life shodld n.iss. ns.
all who deserve, the name of men would
have it, in quiet and delightful usefulness.
It is of course, subject to the circumstances
which may mar ot lesson all human happi
ness but we are yet to learn that these
may be avoided by forcing her into an un
natural sphere. Contemplate the "evert
tenor of her way" from infancy. The re
lations of daughter, and sister arc among
tho most delightful and confiding in the
world. Her lather's success is hers her
brother's fortune is her own properly. Tho
affection which nature has made a charac
teristic of the female mind, identifies her
with the course of those with whom she is
connected. That she shares sorrow as
well as joy, is true; but hers is the power
to pour balm into the wounded spirit and
successful relief or assuagement of sorrow
confers a reciprocal pleasure. Follow her
to the delightful situation of a blushing'
bride thence to that holiest of all earthly
relations, a happy mother. In lier hands'
afc, it may almost be said, the issues of the
life and death of her oflspriiiff. To her in
an especial manner is confided that most
delightful of all employments and privile
ges, the observation of tho devclopcment of
mind, and its progress from infancy to ma
turity. New objects of interest absorbing
interest spring up about her path as life
wanes, arid when she herself has arrived at
that point where the pleasures of life be
cpme tasteless by repetition, she may enjoy
them anew by sympathy with herehildren.
The last sweet task remains the support
of her partner down the declivity of years.'
It is a wise provision of Providence that the
fortitude, the patience, the capacity of endu
rance, in which she exceeds the ruder sex,
permit her to wear longer. In how many,'
many instances wc may daily see the ivy
which twined around the youthful oak, and
drew its support from it, becoming in turn
no small supportor of the falling tree.
Yet there are those who hold the doc
trine that woman's sphere is too circum
scribed. They would do away the depenr
dence of the weaker sex upon the stronger,
and place woman upon' a political equality
with the lords of creation. Tho thought is
monstrous. Woman was made "to temper
man." Such a ehango would rob her of
the gentleness and delicacy which enablo
her to abate the rudeness of thb other sex.
It would impart to her perhaps more ener
gy but it would rob her of loveliness.'
Worse than all, it. would divert her attention
from that imperative of all duties, the edu
cation of children. Men may teaeh wo
If any change is desirable, it is that wo
man, instead of being taught to sigh for
change to come out 6? her retirement and
interfere with politics and other matters in
man's proper sphere, should bo made sen
sible of tho full weight of responsibility
which pertains toher r ex. And man, par
ticularly yoting men should he taught
pioperiy to estimate the advantages of refi
ncil fema!e'8ocicly. They should go to tho
faircrsex to learn to bo taught tho cour
tesies of life and its purity. Thd worst ob
jection to our colleges and schools tho rea
son why insubordination so abounds in
them, may be traced to the fact that young
men thero collected together, retrogato to a
stato of comparative barbarism, from the ab
sence offemalo society and female example.
