"What a fovely girl Emma Wharlon is,"
said Charles Lawrey to a chance acqaiii
tance whom ha chancod to meet in the
etroct, and as the young man spoko lio
glanced across the way to a young lady
whoso graceful step and elegant figure at
traded universal attention.
Ahl that is Miss Wharton!' said Mr.
Henry Gowen, the friend whom ho addres
sed, I've heard she's rich; but there's no
knowing certainly now-a-days, since if a
girl has but a thousand dollars sho is made
an heiress by the popular report.
I do not pretend to know how wealthy
'Miss Wharlon is,' replied Lawrey with
some coldness. 'She is an old acquain
tance, but I have never troubled myself
about her riches.'
Faith, now.thai's the firsUhingl would
trouble myself about. There is'.it a girl I
luve known for a month, a knowledge of
"whose fortune I hav'nt at my finger
ends, It don't do to throw oneself away
on an angel without a sixpence. Catch
-ne at it.'
Mr; Henry Gowen spoke frankly. He
made it his business to ascertain at the
"earliest poseible period after an introduction
the exact fortune of every single lady whom
he honored with his acquaintance we say
honored, far as Mr. Henry Gowen had a
few thousands of his own, and was thought
to be tht handsomest man in his family, he
considered it quit.e a condescension to make
the acquaintance of any lady. On marry
ing a rich wife ho was fully resolved. That
such adrintagcs as this should be thrown
away on a penniless girl, was not to be
thought of, and if ever a hawk had a keen
eye for Us prey, Henry Gowen. had one
for an heiress.
From what Charles Lawrey iad said the,
fortune hunter suspected that Miss Whar
ton was worth more than ho had at first
suspected, so he lost no time in making
her acquaintance, and, as a matter of course
began to prosecute his inquiries as to her
wealth, with what effect will appear from
the following conversation with Charles
Lawrey, about a month subsequent to the
preceding interview.
I can tell you all about Miss Wharton,'
aid Gowen as they met in the street,
Yes! I soon ferretted it out Let me
elone for such an inquiry as this is. Miss
tVharton is worlh exactly one hundred and
ien thousand dollars, in ground rents, mort
gages, and houses She has also twenty
thonsand dollars in slock. Her income
Bust at least be seven thousand dollars a
pretty pill as times go. And then she's so
deucedly handsome. Faith. I've made up
my mind to make love to her, so if you
know any body who has an eye that way
you can give hirn a friendly hint that iis no
use,' and Mr. Henry Gowen pulM tip ,js
hirt collar with all the coxcombry and con
ceil of a finished exquisite.
There might have been seen t'look of
urpise on the face of Lawrey when his
acquaintance first announced his intentions
towatds Miss Wharton, but this expression
quickly subsided into a quiet smile, (which
also soon passed away, so that eie Mr.
Henry Gowen had finished speaking, the
counlenace of his hearer had assumed its
usual composed demeaner.
Pray, when do you intend to bring mat.
ters to a crisis!' asked Lawrey.
In a month at farthest. When I've
onco made up my mind I lose no time; 1
flatter myself that I've already made a con
siderable impression on Miss Wharton.'
You conceited coxcomb!' muttered Law.
ley to himself, and after a few common
place expressions they parted.

lie entered the parlor where sat his betroth

he added laughing 'and now recollect
lie lus been acting very willingly of late,
nun iiiis gvcb guiie so lar ss io seim roe
this piecs of verse poetry he calls it.
Lawrey took the manurcript and read the
poem, laughing with Emma over it. At
length he spoke.
'As no one knows of our engagement,
dearest, this fellow has made me Ins confi
dent, and told me to warn any body that it
wouiu oe useless to pretend to your hand,
while ho is in the field. What chink you

Emma's fine eyes flashed.
I will brink down his coxcombry yet,
-with your permission, dear Charles. The
impudent fellow! For the sake of my sex
I ought to expose hire. Pray did he honor
you wim ino exct amount or my fortune!'
To the very cent, a piece of information
1 never possessed before. I wondei where
lie learned it, for his minute particularly
convinced me that he spoke with authority
but to slay as I was going to Court.I
met tbu clerk of the Surrogate, who called
me to turn, lie asked mo if I knew vou
and then if knew Gowen, for.' save he.
'that gentleman has been here looking at
-ihe late Mr. Wharton's will, and calculating
jrom ii me uaugnier e toriune. Now, 1 tin

ought to be acquainted with this.' So you

$01 ilw wfekV fad jEutni

and he thinks himself str. irreaislaile ti'iirt
he can win a lady at once.'
'And ho tells mo ho wilt propose for you
in a month, and that his success is certain,'
said her lover with mock solemnity, and
then both looking into each others faces,
burst into a merry laugh which lasted for
soma minutes
'A thought strikes mo, said Emma at
length, her eyes sparkling with mischief,
and then she recounted to her lover a plan
which sho had formed, which only increas
ed their laughter. What the plan was that
so pleased Etniuagaud Lawrey shall appear
in due time.
The attentions of Mr. Henry Gowen to
tho fair Emma Wharton, noon became the
theme of conversation, and many an opinion
was hazarded as to whether the attachment
was reciprocal. Of the sentiments of the
gentlemen there could apparently be no
doubts, since his attentions were constant
and minute; but the conduct of Emma was
not so easily unriddled, sinc.e altho' she
did not reject the attentions of her new
lover, she could hardly be said to oticoui
age them. The gossippers, howevei.soon
came to the conclusion that 'it was to be a
match" and that the deportment of the
lady was to be attributed wholly to coy
ness A fortnight had elapsed since the conver
sation betwixt Lawrey and Emma, when
Mr. Henry Gowen sgain met Lawrey in
the street
'Deuced fine girl, Lawrey, is that Mies
Wharton, Said Mr. Henry Gowen, '1
was never so deeply in love in my life.'
'With her fortune, you mean,' drily said
Oh, faith, with herself I confess, be
tween you and I, it was her money that
induced me to pay attention to her, but
I'm afraid I'm more deeply interested in
her than would bu piudent if there was any
danger of a refusal.'
bo you think your success is certain.'
'Why, yes, I may say so 1 fancy there
is little dnubis. Emma is a little coy, to be
sure, but aside from that, every symptom
is favorable! Ah! but here comes the an
gel heiself-good bye don'iyou wish you
wero as hanpvas 1 am?
A pieciotis rascal!' said Lawrey to him
self as he bowed to Emma, and exchanged
with her a meaning amile.
Mr. Henry Gowen hastened to join the
side of Emma, and accompanied her home.
Soliciting a lew in inula tele u-lele with hei
as she entered the parlor and took his seal
by her side 1 lien, in a set speech which
he had duly composed and commuted to
memory Tor the occasion, he tendered her
his heart, hand, audfuriuue. Emma heard
tiim out gravely and then replied.
I ccrwiuiY vusm u icci iiiyatsti Honored
by ycur proposal, sir; but as I atlributo it
wholly to my fortune and nut to myself, 1
cannot be so highly flattered as 1 should
under other circumstances. Excuse me
for declining your proposal,' she sdid, ris
ing, 'and take a word of counsel, Never
go again to the buriopale s Oihee to learn
lady's wealth. Good morning sir.'
These words, without the tone in which
they were pronounced would have been
sufficient to discomfit even a greater cox
comb than Mr. Henry Gowen. lie left as
if he could have wished the floor io open
and swallqw him from the scornful took of
Miss Wliar'.on. Seizing his hat he hurried
to the door,and before iiiglu was ou his way
to the bprings.
A merry laugh had Emma and her lover
that evening over the discomfited fortune
hunter. And when, a few mouths Uier,
Mr. Ilenrv Gowen taw their marriage in

made a confident uf Charles Lawtey, he

A ragged militia officer, and still more
