a beautiful woruing 1" exclaimed
Sibyl Stevens, as, prettily equipped for a
uioniiug wald, sbe left ber fatber's cottago.
This was a pretty little building, notwith
standing it was composed of logs, for tbey
were almost completely bidden from vjaw,
by ckmbering vines, wbicb wore now iu
all their glory of leaf and flower. This
building stood ,111 ,tho cenjter of a small
.clearing, which was surrounded by a
grand eld forest. Immediately surround
ing tho house, wero a number of beautiful
trees, which, being a favorite rcsoifc of
tho merry songsters of the air, that iu
spring and summer carroled their melodi
ous notes under tboir sheltering branches,
gave rise to tho name Sibyl bestowed up
on her home, "Tho Bird's Nest."
Sibyl Stevens was a girl cf about eighi
teen years of age a very .queen of beauty.
In form sho was faultless," rather fragile,
but, synictrical, aEd sho was as gracoful in
mpvemest as (she was iu form ; at the saiuo
time as dignified, yet affable in manners,
as she was graceful in form aud movement.
She possessed a cheerful, animated dispo
sition, aud loved nature profoundly,
,Uer father formerly was a rich mer
chant of -Philadelphia. His wife (j?a2 a
woman of almost angelic purity and beau
ty. Thoy wero blest with four bright
children, tho eldest of whom is Sibyl, tho
Other threo wero bright, lovely boys. Mr.
Stevens loved his wife as men seldom love;
and his children he idolized. But, alas 1
a fearful cnidemio seized upon the 111, and
bore Mrs. Stevens aud her threo little sons
from tho world, iu a single day. They
wero buried in 0110 gravo. Tho agonies
of parting with them, seemed almost too
much for the borcaved ones to bear, aud,
bclioving thoy would bo happier when
thoro would uot bo so many ithiugs to re
mind them of their loss, thoy resolved .to
remove to some secluded place, whero thoy
could spend tho spring and summer in re
tirement, and in autumn and winter go to
scmo village, whero Sibyl could attend a
selwS school. Thus it was, thoy came and
establiohed thomsclvcs at "Tho L'ird'a
Nest." Here they spent tho spring and
summer ; Mr. Stevens in the exciting pur
suits of tho huntor aud fisherman, for
gamo abounded in, the surrounding forest,
while a short distance from his cottage
was a pretty littlo lako, called Silver Lake,
in which tbo finny tribes dwelt in groat
abundance. Whilo ho was engaged iu
llc wild r.ud soiling purnuitB, Sibyl
spent her tiino in ministoring to his wanfs,
in acquiring an education, in rambling
through tho forest in search of tho curious
or beautiful in naturo, in, not making tho
''wilderness bloom as tho rose," but in
making tho roso bloom in tho wildorncss,
in riding her spirited pony, sometimes ao
compauied by her fathor, and comctimcu
clone j and in wandering to tho lake, to
enjoy horself, by gliding smoothly over
thp silvery wafers, in her father's sail
Sometimes sho would grow lonely, with
no company but that of her father and an
old servaut, whom they brought with them
from Philadelphia, then sho wpuld mount
her fleet little pony, and away she would
go to a gay village, somo ten miles dis
tant, to visit some of her many friends
thcro, for this was tho placo where their
winters wero spent. At other times, fish
jug narcs of tho young ladies and gentle
men from tho village, would como, to tajio
from Silver lako somo of its many beau
tiful spotted trout ; and they would ro-
main at " Tho Bird's Nest," not unfrc-
queutly, for days together. Thus the
spring and summer passed off pleasantly,
and when tho cold winds of aufuma began
to blow, they would romovo to tho villago
aboyo mentioned, where Sibyl attended a
seloct school, and where they remained
till tho warm weather again set in.
Two years had now passod round, and
they had just returned from tho villago,
and arranged things in ordor a(i "The
Bird's Nest." It was indeed a fine morn
ing in tho delightful month of May. No
sender that Sibyl's bright blue eye should
sparklo with delight, and that her clear,
musical Yoico should shapo itself into the
words, "What a beautiful morping?" as
she left ,hcr father's cot, and btarted out
for a morning walk. As she passed the
clearing, and entered the forest, flowers
that were blooming on all Bides, filled the
air wiih their fragrance, and attracted her
eyes by their beauty. Tho sun bad al
ready climbed high in tho heavens, and
was shining with more than bis usual bril
liancy. Tho large forest trees, clothed in
a luxurienfc foliago of livid green, now
cast upon the earth a most delightful shade.
Birds sang in tho trees an thoy hopped
from brauch to branch, their most harico-
iiious songs. A. gentle breeze waved thro
tuo trcc-to)B, creating a low murmur
which js Natures sweetest music. Sibyl,
with her profound loyo of the beautiful in
nature, could net but bo enchanted with
a morning, aud with tho scenes through
which she passed. Hero, she would bound
to one side to pluck a pretty cwer j there,
jcho would stop under some delightful
shade tree, to enjoy tho refreshing shade,
to listen to tho melody poured forth from
tho tuneful (thrcat of some pretty songster,
perched quite fearlessly upon a thin twig,
'whiqh swung to and fro in tho gentle
Thus sho wandered on somo distanco,
, till, having plucked a largo bunch of flow
crs, she sat nown on a soft carpet of gieon
moss, at tho foot or an acd hemlock, to
weave them into wreath. Engaged ia this
pleasant task, tho time passed' away, till
sijo had completed the Wreath, and it ad
. ded a new beauty to her wavy auburn hair,
when a ory liko that of a child in distress,
was wafted to her cars on tho wings of the
gentlo breeze.
j 'Oan it bo," thought she, "that a child
j bas wandered away fr.oin some distant
hunters hut, and is now lost iu tho forest ?"
Whilo questioning in her mind, i.he
sound was repeated; thoro could bono
mistako aboyt it j thoso cortainly wero tho
cries of tomo lost child, and sho' must
search for it, and when found, tako caro
of it, till its parents should discover ita
whorcabouts, or till hor arthcr ' should
discover theirs.' Full of theso thoughts,
sho started, in great .haste, in tho direction
whouco tho sound came, but beforo she
had gouo far she mot her father.
".My daughter whither away so fasti" he asked.
"Why, my father, hear you not the cry
Of some lost Child, now in distress,
Who, if succor conies not eoo'u, must die,
Must die, herein Ihu wilderness."
"Yes, father; but why do you maifest
sp muoh surprise at that 't Could I, know
ing a child 'to bo lost in tho forest, and
being certain thai starvation stared it in
tho Jaco, and would bo its .certain doom,
unless it woro found : could I turn heart
lessly away and leave it' tovdio a death so
"Sibyl, you aro a huutor'a daughter,
aud did you know 110 bettor than this ?
Follow mo, aud sco wlionco thoso sounds
come," and he led her a littlo distanco
from where .they woro 6Undiug, and poin
ted up in tho brunches of an immense oak.
Her quick eyo followed in the direction
in which he pointed, and sbe orouoh-
cd in an attitude of fury, a hugh panther.
Ho seemed just in a position tospriug up
on her father's faithful hound, who stood
below, bravely awaiting tho bo,und wbjpji
would bring the hugo aud furious prcaturo
upon him. Sibyl's oyes grew wild with
fright, and her check becamo deathly palo.
Sho turned and wpuld have fled, but her
fafher kept her bapk, telling that by such
precipitate flight the animal's attention
would bo attracted from tho dqg to her ;
thcrcforo sho quietly stepped aside, so thuf;
the trunk of a largo tree camo between
hor tjid the crcaturo's range of sight. Her
father camo to her, and taking, from his
pouch a number cf buckshot, added them
to tho load already in his trusty riflo.
"I fear," said ho, "I may not bo able
to kill tho hard-lived animal, with Jhia
load, for I was not expecting to meet such
gamo as this, and consequently brought
with mo only a small quauty of ammuni
tion, iho Jas't of which is now in tho gun,
and is too littlo, by half, for so tough a
creature, and yet, I must try it, let tho
consequences bb what thoy will, for I can-
uot think of going away and leaving brave
Jiion a prey to this furious creature."
0 saying, ho took a position from which
a goqd view of the panther was obtained.
Taking good aim, his finger touched tho
trigger, and thcro was a loud, almost deaf
ening report. Tho panther reeled from
its position, uttering a cry of pain, but
clambering baok again, it reached its for
mer position, lashing its tail in anger,
while its eyes flashed fury. Its attention
was now fixed upon Mr. Stevens, and,
making ono bound i,J alighted upon the
grouud a short distaneoN from where ho
was standing. Crouching J,o the earth, it
made one more bound at tho objoct of its
hatred, but ho was prepared for it, and,
springing to ono side, it wont past him.
Now suddenly wheeling round, the but cf
his riflo was brought with all the force of
his strong arms, upon tho pauthcr's head.
This appeared to stagger it, and, stepping
closer, lac prepared to fellow up his ad
vantage, when, quick as thought, tho in
furiated beast sprang upon him, and bore
him to tho grouud. By this time Lion,
tho fearless hound, came to his master's
aid. Sinking his teeth deep into tho pan
ther's neck, he gaye it 'suih a shake as
loosen its hold upou his masters cio'ijldcr,
where it ha'd fastened with all the might of
its fury, its loiig sharp fangs. Tho pau
ther now sprang upon the dog, but, in fall
ing to tho earth with the pauther's im
mense weight upou him, Mr. Stevens was
so stunned that he was still insensible,
.consequently tho dog could receive r.b
help from its inastor. For a time it
seemed doubtful which would gain tho
mastery, the faithtul dog, or tho w'cunded
Sjbyl now calmed, jher feelings and hor
steady voice gave encouragement to Lion
who fought with all a dog's instinctive
r 0 - . 1 ; 0
courage. Now it would appear as though
Lion would gain tho victory ; and then
(th3 panther seemed to gain a now advan
tage; then, again, Lion would spring with
renewed vigor upon his formidable Antag
onist. And .thus tho fight went on the result,
still doubtful, wheu a voica sounded plain
ly in Sibyl's oars ! it said :
"Step aside, if you plcace Miss, and I
will put an end to this.''
Sibyl turned around, and before ,her
stood a young man cf gentlemanly dress
and bearing. Nothing could bo more ma
jestic than his fine cpmmanding form; and
his features woro pleasing in tho extreme.
Ho bowed, gracefully, to her, and after
rcturnipgrtborcalutation, slio s'tepp'ed asido
vhen a woll aimed bullet from his riflo,
did well its work, and laid tho panther
low in death.
Sibyl now turned to tho gentleman, and
after thanking him for what be had douo,
implored h'uholp for hor'ifa,thcr. ' ''
Tho two now went up to hiuij and, Had
ing him still unconscious, the stranger took
from a portmantau which ho held in his
hand, d silver cup, aud going to a spring
a abort way off, he filled it'wi'tli jho pure
cold water, of which, when ho returned, ho
spriuLlod somo gently ou tho wounded
man's faco, aud then placed tho cup be
tween his partc.d lips, and, when con
soiousuess was restored, ho drank eagerly
of tho cooling draught. Now taking a
handkorchiof, tho generous strauger bound
Diccly tho wounded shsu'ldcr. After this
was douo Mr, S'tcvcns thanked him sin
cerely for tho favors he bad douo him.
''Your servicer, Sir," ho said "will ov
or be thankfully appreciated. Allow mo
to ask to whom I am so much indebted,'
"Mr. Stevens," said the Btrauger archly
"I did not expect you would rcmembor
tho boy, a tou of ono of yocx friends ia
Philadalphia who used to visit aj; ytnr
house so frequently, but I did expect to
bo recognized by your daughter."
"0, Herbbcrt St. piair!" ejaculated
Sibyl, bounding to lib sjdo, and extending
her soft, white hand , which ho took in both
his, and pressed fervently to his lips ;
"Herbert it has been two long years Binoo
I saw you, and you havo changed muoh
in that time, yet at any other time I should
have instantly recognized you, but, in the
ezoitcmcnf of suoh an occasion as this, is
it to bo wondered at that I did not know
The father now greeted him warmly;
after which tbo trio proceeded to the
house, Mr. Stevens, much weakened by t&o
loss of blood, leaning on Herbert for sup.
Herbert St. Clair, as already stated,
was tho son of'jlr.' Stevens' chosen friend
iu Philadelphia. Silbyl and young t.-
Clair, attonded tho same school, and, cb;l
drcn though they were, each entertained
for tho other a sincere and growing affec
tion, and when they were about to leave
the city, Herbert came to bid her farewell,
J , .' t i 1 i, . i
Wfth tears in his eyc3 he said: -
"Sibyl we arc now about to part, may
I not have permission to meet you at your
home in tho far west? Darling 1 love you;
spurn not my boyish love, for it is as strong
and as devoted as though I were a full
grown man. 1 am an Artist, seyeral of
my pictures aro already jn the market,
when you are gone, I will redouble my
diligence, I will win fame may T not then
come and claim you aB my own Sibyl!
"Herbert, you have told mo that you
have loved me, receive my assurance, now,
as I am about to leave you, that tho sen
timent that warms your noble heart, beats
as high in mine. You have asked it, I
will bo yours, yours forever;" was her re .
'Thus they parted; and ho had now
come (to ask her to redeem her promise.
He h'ld gained fame ; ho was an artist
ono of i.fuorie's best. Hi3 promise was
now fulfilled, and he askok her to fulfill
hers. Mr. Steven sanctioned tho match,
aud in loss than three peeks from that day
they were on a wedding tour o Philadel
Years have passed since then. Mr.
Stevens is 'now iu his grave. Herbert St.-
Olair and his lovely wifo aro just in tho
prime of lifo; theirs lias been, iiideed,
happy lot. Threo children havo been giv

gest of which, a charming little lass, with
wavv. auburn hair, the very picture of her
mother, is' called Sibyl.' ' '
Upon tho sito of "T. B. N." is erected
a splendid mansion, which is now, Mr,
St. Clair's country residence, whilo the
village wo havo spoken of, has become
a flourishing city, tho capital of one of the
western states, and contains the Govern
