before. iMy dear Miss, let me whisper in your
ear. ' Flirting and coquetting are two very differ-
"n things. Courting and sparking are as dissim
ilar as flirting and coquetting In a "flirtation,"
neither party ara seriously inclined, and carry on
the anour merely for mutual pleasure and grati
fication. Coquetting" requires real passion on
cue side, and affected tenderness on the other.

These important distinctions you will pUme bear
Some people condemn a flirtation as immoral
tnd injNrious. Bless their innocent hearts, they
UbW under a great mistake ! A flirtation arises
naturally and entirely out of the innate gallanta
yofotir sex, and the "protective policy" of the
other. It comas so natural for a gentleman to
minister to the wants an. wishsi, happinefs and
welfare, of "Heavens last, best gilt to man;" ami
the Lad'ies receive it with so much kindness and
condescension, t"at 11 wn,,M bc,h ,mpri'

I lha attentions of more than una gentleman at
' limi!. A Rohtlninan coquette i perhaps even
more contemptible than a lady. A litllo vanity
can easily be accorded to those who claim, and
generally merit, our kindness and attention, but
a man ihuuld ne superior to these loimes
There are various phases ind decrees, in which
thes attentions can show themselves, aud to
which they can be carried ; and of course circum
dtancea will often determine their innocence of
criminality. There is nothing so innocent that
it cannot, in the hands ol unprincipled villians,
be perverted to seltish Bnd immoral purposes.
A lj,lvofi!reat buautv, wit mid talent, wax at one
iimo dclmdinxa certain gentleman, who was
somewhat celebrated for flirtation and coquetry
with the sex, and in her defence made use of this
very, (to some people) remarkable expression J
carrying it even beyond what I hava been assert
ing. "It is my opinion, said the that the majori
ty of woman had rather be courted and jilted, than
not courted at all !"
1 think the expression one replete with com
taon sense, and showing a profound knowledge,
of human nature.
There is nothing tends so much to soften the
heart, smooth the asperities bf character and man
ner, polish the conversation, and elevate the
thoughts, as t free, unrestrained and confiden
tial intercourse between the eexes ; you may call
it flirting, coquetting, sparking or courting, or
what you please i but the mutual society of young
people, is certainly pleasant, and it is their own
fault if it is not also profitable. There ara many
subjects discussible in an evening party, literary
or scientific or historiejl.lit which the talents,
and acquirements of the whole company can be
fully employed, and displayed. ' 1
It is said to be impolite to raise a discussion in
tha eompanv of Ladies. I beg leavt to differ in a
great measurt from those holding this opinion.
An argument carried on with asperity, m which
virtorvand not truth, is the object, ! confess
would hotmeet my approbation ; but a calm -dis
cussion, in which every one is requested to con
tribute to elucidate the matter, is certainly not to
be condemned. No Lailies would thank Ihe gen
tlemen for so contemptible an opinion of their
tastes and talents; and it is undoubtedly errone
ous, and should neither be cultivated nor indul
ged. For the Columbia Democrat.

who warmly urged its passage.
It will be observed that the law does
not go into effect until the 4th of July next,

tent persons, who ehall be sworn or alllriied, to
apprise the property which the said debtor may
elect to retain under the provisions of this act,
for which service the said appraisers shall bo en

I Storm in the mountains '
In the fall of 1810, I was travelling eas
tward in a sUigc-coaeh from l'ltthburgover
th) mountain. My fellow passengers
were tw-o gentlemen andahidy. The ulder
gentleman's appearance interested rue, ex
ceedingly. In year.?, he seemed about thirty;
in air and manner 1,'ie waa, ealjn, .dignified
and polished; and the contour of hi
features, was singularly., intellectual. ; He
conversed freely on general topics, until
the road became more abrupt and precipit
ous ; but on my directing .his attention to
the great altiude of a precipice, on, tlC verge
of which our coach wheels, were. -leisurely
rolling j there eauiu a marked change ,over
his countenance. His eyes, so lately filled
with the liglof mild intelligence, beamed
wild, restless and anxious, the mouth U itc
hed spasmodically,' and tlie foicjiead was
beaded with a cod perspiration. . With a
sharp, convulsive shudder,, he turned his
gaze from the giddy height, and clutching
my ai m lightly with both hands, he clung
to r.ie like a drowning man.
"Use this cologne," said the lady, hand
ing me a boUle.-with the, instinctive" good
ness of her sex- '-.'
I sprinkled a'litfle on his face, and ho,
soon became somewhat more composed ;
hut it was not until we had entirely travers
ed the mouulain and.dQicended to the coun
try beneath, that hi. fino; features- relaxed
from their perturbed look, and assumed the
placid, quiet dignity, I had first noticed.
"I owe an apology lo the lady," said he
with a bland smile and gentle inclination
pf the head to, our' fair companion, "and
some explanation to my fellow-travellers
also, and perhaps I eaimot better acquit !
myselfof the double debt than ly recounting
the cause of my recent agititf'ion." j
"It may pain your feelings-," delicately j
urged the lady. ' j
"On the contrary it will relieve litem," j
was the respectful reply. j
Having signified our several desires to !
hear more, the traveller ihus proceeded.
"At the age nf eighteen, I was lilif of ,
heart, light of foot, and, I fear' here he!
smiled."; light of head. A fine property on
the right hand of tho Ohio, acknowledged
me as sole owner. I was hastening homo
to enjoy it, and delighted to get: from a
college life. The month was. October, the
air bracing, and ihe mode of conveyance a
siage-coach like this, only more cumbrous.
The other passengers were few but three I
in all an old grey-headed planter of Lou- j
isiana, his daughter, a jjpyotis, bewiiching
creature about seventeen, and his son,
about ten year of age. They were just
returning from IVance, of. which country !
tho young lady di-eoinv d in lerms so j
eloquent as to au.soro my enure attention.
"The father, was taciturn, but the daugh
ter was vivacious by nature : aud wc soon
became so mutually pleased with each
other she as a talker I as a listener
that it was not until a sudden liaahof lightn
ing and a heavy dash of rain against ihe
coach windows elicited an exclamation
from my charming company, that I knew
how night passed us. Presently there was
h low rumbling sound, and then several
tremendous peals lo thunder, accompanied
by successive flashes of lightning. Tin.'
rain descended in torrenls sold art ancry

through the forest trees.
"I looked from the window of our vehicle.

Uutarc we on the mountains yet?"
"Yes we have begun the ascent."
"It is not said to be dangerous?"
"lly no means," I replied, in as easy a
tone as I could assume.
"I only wish it was daylight, that we
might enjoy the mountain scenery, l'ut
J. -mi Marie! but what's that?' and she
covered her eys from the glare of a sheet
of lightning1 that illuminated the rugged
mountain with brilliant intensity. I'eal
after peal of crashingtlmnder instantly suc
ceeded ; there was a very volume of rain
coming down at each thunder-burst: and
wkh 'ihe deep moaning of an animal in
dreadful agony, breaking upon my ears, 1
found that the coach had came to a dead
" Louisa, my beautiful fellow-traveller,
became pale as ashes. She fixed her
sea'reeing eyes on mine with a look of an
xious dread, and turning to her father, hur
riedly romarked ' ' '
"We are on the mountains!"
"I reckon so," was the unconcerned re
ply.. "With instant activity I put my head
ihroueh the window and called to the
driver, but the only answer was the heavy
moaning of an agonized animal borne past
me by the swift wings of the tempest. I
seized tho handle of the door and strainod
at it in vain : it would not yield a jot At
that installed I felt a cold hand on mine,
and heard Louisa's voice faintly articulat
ing in my ear the appalling words.
"77e coach is being moved lock'
"God in heaven ! Never shall I forget
the fierce agony with which I lugged at
that couch door and called on the driver in
times tliat rivaled the force of ihe blast,
whist the dreadful conviction was beaning
in mv brain that the couch torn being

"What followed was of such swift
occurrence that it seems to me like a frigh-
"1 rushed against the door with all my
force but it mocked mv utmost. One side
of our vehicle was sensibly going down,
down, down. The moaning of the agonized
I animal became deeper and deeper and
I knew the desperate plunges against his
traces that it was one of our horses. Crash
upon crash of hoarse thunder rolled over
the mountain, and vivid sheels of lightning
plaved around our devoted carriage as if in
glee at our misery. Uy 'tis light I could
see for a moment only for a moment
the old planter, standing erect, with his
hands on his son and daughter, his eyes
raised to heaven, and his lipi moving like
those of one in prayer. I could see Louisa
turn her ashy checks and superb eyes to
wards me as if imploring protection, and I
could see the bold glance of tho young boy
(lashing indignant defiance at the decend
iii" carriage, tho war of dements, and the
awful danger, that awaited him. There
was a roll a desperate plunge, as if of an
animal in the last throes of dissolution a

of mortal terror, and I had but time

The traveller paused. His features
worked for n minute or two as they did
when wc u ere on the mountain: he press
ed his bin head as if in pain, and then re
sumed his interesting story.

fumeiciiily recovered to sit up, I insisted
on learning the result of the accident'
"You were discovered,' said he, 'sitting
on a ledge of rock, amidst the brunches
of a shattered tree clinging to a part of tho
roof of your broken coach with one hand,
and to the insensible form of a lady with

girls' face with an earnestness that caused
her lo draw back and blush.
"She was saved, sir, by the same means

. ' Were both found crushed to pieces at
the bottom of the precipice, a great way
below tho place where my father ami undo
Joe got you and thelady. We buried their
bodies in one grave, dose by the clover
patch down in our meadow ground.
' ' I'oor Louise! poor orphan ! God pity
you !' I muttered, in broken tones, utterly
unconscious that I had a listner.'
"Cod pity her, indeed, sir,' said ihe
young girl, with a, gush of heart-fdt eym
pathy. ' Would you like to sea her ? she
'Take me to her,' I replied,
'I found the orphan bathed in tears, by
the grave of her hurried kindred. She re
ceived me with sorrowful sweetness of
manner. I will not detain your attention
by detailing the efforts I made to win her
from her grief; but briefly acquaint you,
that I at last succeeded in inducing her to
leave home in tho sunny south aud that
twelve months after the dreadful occursnco
which I Imc related, we stood at the alter

to bless my love with her smiles, and mv
children with her good precepts ; but o;i

secludes herself in her room, and devotes
the hours of darkness to h-olitary prayer.
As for me," added the traveller,' whilo
faint flush tinged his noble brow at tho a
vowal, "as for me, that accident has redu
ced me to the condition of a physical cow

'Hut Ihe driver,' urged our lady passen

story with much attenlion-"what became)
