got whar she was, and whenever she look

o' blushed at me, I always feltimrt o' skew
ed and fainty‘and all I made up to tell her
was forgot, so .I couldn't think of it to save
me. Butyou'ss married man,Mr. Thomp

inakint a transgression, as thepreaelter ses.
Crimes eve I put on my new snit, and
shaved my face as slick as a smoothin
and went over to old Miss Stallinses. As

"You come under little sister's chicken

ed red all over.
"Oh, you necd'nt deny it." sea Miss Ko
ala(' : "you 'long to Joseph, now, jest as
,sure as there's any charm in chicken bones."
I knowd that was a fust rate chance to
say something, but the dear little creator
looked so sorry and kept blushin so, I
couldn't say nothin zactly to the pint, so I
tuck a chair and reached up and tuck down
the bone and put it in my pocket.
"What arc you gwine to do with that old
bone, now, Major ?" sea Mary.
"I'm gwine to keep it as long as 1 live,"
sea I, "as a Crismus present from the hand
somest gall in Georgia."
When I and that, she blushed worse
"Aint yon abareted,llsjorrr see she.

The first care of Richelieu was to carry

which he had lately presomed to her. She
replied simply and calmly that he should
be obeyed. •
The eight and forty hours which were

could be accomplished, appeared sn many
centuries to the cardinal duke. Anne of
Austria was now fairly in the toils, and
still her tomposure remained unruffled.—
How was this apparent tranquility to be
explained? Richelieu had already expe

The hour ofdlC festival at length struck;
and it had been arranged that the King
should first make his entrance into the holt
room, accompanied by his minister, anti
that the Queen should folloW, attended by
her ow•n court. Richelieu was misblett to

Ilia arithmetic annulated to a dozen. The
cardinal stood a pare behind him, quiver
ing with rage. The twelve tags were
hanging front the shoulder of the Queen,
and, nevertheless, he grasped two of them
in his hand at the same moment. Aye, in
his hand! for lie had resolved not to tote
an instant in triumphing over the proud and
i n s o lent beauty who 11... d laughed his pas

ridicule of his associates. The vow that
he uttered in his heart, as he gazed upon

shoulder knot of the duke, from whence
hie own two tags had been severed, was
not identieni with that now floating over
'the arm of Anne of Austria.
The plot bad, nevertheless, failed,, and
once more the cardinal was beaten upon
his own ground.
It is, however, time that we should dis
close the secret of this apparently myste=
rious incident to our readers.
On his return from the state ball, at
which he had appeared with the aiguilleue

upon him ; he suspected the agency of his
old enemy and the cardinal duke;.
and his immediate measure was to place
an embargo upon the English ports, and
to prohibit all toasters of vessels from put
ting to sea, under pain of death.
During the operation of this edict, which
created universal astonishment throughoitt
the country / the jeweller of Buckingham
was employed day and night in completing
the number of the diamond tags ; and it
was still in full force when a light fishing
smack, which had been exempted from the
general disability. was scudding across the
channel on its way to Calais, und e r t h e
cominaml of one of the duke's confidential
servants, and having on board, fur all its
freight, the aiguillette of Anne of Austria.

ports were opened • and the diousand and

the people died gradually away, as no es
planades of the Memo prehensible and rig

stilt was the reveipt of her shoulder-knot
by the Queen the very day before the ball
of the magistrates.
