contains a now idea—a rare thing now a days.
I lent my love kbook one day,
She brought it back, 1 laid it by ; •
'Twas little either had to say—
She was so strange, and 1 so shy.
But yet we loved in different things—

And time stood still and wreathed his wings
With rosy links from Juue to June.
For her what task to dare or do ?
What peril tempt, what hardship bear?
But with her, alt she never knew
My heart, and what was hidden there!
And she with tne, so cold and coy,
Seemed like a maid bereft Of8011:513
But in a crowd, all life and joy,
And full'of blushful impudence.

%Thera was once a farina. who had a

planted the corn, and harrowed and weed.

"Look at the poor tanner ; I feel sorry
for Ititu ; lie has taken so much pains with
Ins field of corn, and now it is all drying
up ; l wish I could do hills some good."
"Ye 3," said the other, "but you are on

"Deur me," said the Winer, witting his

Never be discouraged, children, because

The Inviable Bridge.
No man ever dreamed so instructively,
and to so good a purpose,. perhaps, as
Bunyan. There is something in the no
hue of dreams, though few profess to be
lieve in then' that so relates them to the
spiritdand, that they excite interest and at
tract attention. The dreams of Bunyan
have led thousands to reflection and to
Beek their filial home in Heaven. What.
ever is illustrative of our duty, and inspires
confidence in' God, and faith in the sure
promises of His word, is of abiding inter
est. If the following one shall lead any
body to start upon a new life by entering
the narrow way, and crossing the invisable
bridge, the dream will not haVe been told
in vain. It is related .by 'the Rev. Mr. Ba
ker, in a volume just published :
"A man dreamed once that he was go
ing along. in the broad road, and Satan
was druggiug hint down to hell. Alarmed
ho cried he cried for help, and suddenly
one appeared in lovelier form saying, "Fol
low intl."- Immediately Satan vanished.
and in his dream the man thought he fol
lowed the heaveniy one in a wait . and nar
row_ way; until he came to a river. Where
he-saw no bridge.. Pointing in a certain
'direction, the angel said; *Teas overthat
bridge." - :611 see no bridge," said the Matt.
'iYes,thtire is a bridge, and yon must PaSS
over it,-for there is no other, 'and . heaven
is beyond." Looking mere narrowly, the
dreamer elm whit appeared-to be .a hair
extending from one bank to the other bank.

trembling and afraid to venture, he thought
Satan again siezed upon him to drag him
down to - hell.. 'Urged by necessity; he

THE SOUTH CAROLINA BELLE,
011 1 WRO LOST THE WAGER.
My uncle Nod lad set his heart upon
marrying me to my cousin Rosalie ; hut
the thing savored of compulsion to me, and
I made up my mind to be just as otr
stinate us the nature of the case, might
demand. ' - '
I confess to being a little septimental.—
I have read heaps of novels in my day,
from the Children of the Abbey down to
Bleak :I-louse, and the thought of hav
ing my uncle . pick out my wife for
me was intolerably repugnant to my
ideas of propriety and to the: rights of
man. . - 41:
Uncle Ned was a jolly' old' fellow, and
laughed iti my face when I ,told him -
I could not 'think of-such a thing as
permitting him to select my with for
me. I looked dignified and felt fligui.,
fled ; and WAS not a little mortified when
the old fellow haw hawed right in my
"But, my boy, she is as rieb as mull--
with an income of eight thousand dollars
a year," said he. "Think of that."
"My dear uncle, I beg you will deem
me above mercenary motives In so im
portant a matter as this,'' I replied,
with a seriousness in keeping with the
soleutraity of the topic discussed.
"Perhaps you don't 111000 to take a wife

' he, -punching me nailer the short ribs, as

"Not so : nn tbn contrary, I mean to
take a wife just as soon as I can find one
exactly suited to my min d -."
"And pat don ' t mean to marry a girl

"That is perfectly immatt4ial, sir, as
you are aware that my fortune is amply

"No, I should not object to a lover who
possessed the requisite qualifications, be
cause she happened to have a fortune at
her disposal, though in lay esti motion it
would add nothing to her fitness ,to be
come my wife..'
"Indeed 1" drawled nrielo'Ned, looting
at me with such a fetiny oxpiassion that
I could not tell.whether he was going to
laugh or get. toad. I didn't care much ;
fur I detailed it beneath his dignity to at

"It matters not, sir; I must be entirely

to decline it."
! you young puppy, what do you
mean by that ?"
“Just exactly what I say, viz : that I
will neither be led or driven into mar
riage with Rosalie. I think we have said
enough about it."
I had begun to talk a little coolly. Ile
was, in my opinion, treading upuu the pre
rogative of a free born citizen.
What did the old fogy mean ? Did he
think I hadn't sense enough to choose my
own wife ? Rosalie was entirely out of
the question—l' could not, ou principle,
be driven into a matrimonial cohneetiou,
even though the other party was an angel

GETTYSBURG, PA., Ft.IDAY EVENING; AUGUST-3,,18:55.'
That night uncle Ned started for his
plantation in South Carolina.
MY father died three years beforo this
me an ample fortune.
Ills tivo brothers had been in South Car
olina. for thirty years, where thu father of
Rosalie died, leaving my uncle Ned her
1 bad often been told that Rosalie was
very pretty girl; but File had been to
the North only once, and then I was trav
eling in Europe, so I bad never seen
I had written uncle Ned prowising to
spend a month with Mut in the autumn.
Business had called aim to Boston, where
our interview occurred. Ile bad more
than once expressed a de s i re th a t his
brother's property might remain in the
family, and pressed mo to Unite thy aid
to that of his beautiful niece.
This was out of the question. A "made
up match" was my abomination. Cer
tainly I had no other unisons fur my vio
lent prejudice against the marriage. I
considered it a sacred obligation to fall in
love before I took a wife, and the idea of
being pledged to Rosalie b,:fore I had
seen her myself was so absurd that I had
no patience to think of it.
And then I bird a:principle for my guid
ance in affairs of tlw heart, which tiliso
lutely forbade me to think of su , ;lt a thing
as a "marriage for convenience."
The autumn came :Intl I pai.l my prepo•
sett visit to uncle Ned's plantation in
was disappointed in my cousin Rosa
lie. She whs a tolerably good looking
damsel, but in my opinion 'very far from
being liko the beautiful creature she had
been pictured to toe.
"Isn't sho handsome, Bob 7" said my
uncle. 'l)iil you ever see such lips, such
a head of hair, such eyes; such a graceful
form ? Isn't she handsome, oh, you dog'"
And the old fellow punched me in the
ribs, and roared with laughter till he near
ly split his sides.
•I couldn't for the Fie of me see what he
was laughing at.
"• "Isn't she beautiful, you rogue ?" he
"Passable," I replied very coldl!y.
“Pussablo ! You puppy What, do
you menu to say Rosalie is not hand
"Tolerably," I answered, twisting off
the leaf of a palmetto, which grow by the
side of the bench on widen we were
seated, just to show him how indifferent I
"Ilob," said he, looking more soberly-,
"I had :in idea yuu were a man of taste,
but I sue you arc Su likely to lull .in love

"Who's that, undo Ned r
This remark was called forth by the
sudden appearance, upon she gravel walk,
01 the loveliest creature I ever beheld, and
that, considering 1 have flirted with the
belles of Paris, Naples and florae, is say
ing a great deal. I was confounded by
the sudden apparition, and springing
from my scat us if an electric shock
had roused the slumbering blood in
my veins, I stood bolt upright be fore
Shades of Venus ! did any one ever

I could neither speak nor move, so com
pletely was I paralyzed by the glorious
beauty of the nymph.
"I didn't know there was any one here,"
stammered she, with such a delectable
blush on her cheek, that -Linearly went
mad with enthusiasm.
Before I could recall my scattered senses

I was about to say something saucy ;
but I thought since uncle Ned really be
liti'ved what he said, 1 would not hurt his
feelings by denying it. At dinner 1 met
both ladies, and was formally introduced
to "little gylphie Howard ) ." I was pro
voked with uncle when he assigned me
scat next to Rosalie. I could hardly be
civil to her, with such a pair of beatiful
eyes before me,and I hardly ceased to
gaze upon Sylphio during the hour we
spent at the table.
After dinner we went out to ride horse
back. Uncle Ned annoyed me again
by Contrivino ° so that I could help 110-
Italie mount her horse, and ride by her,

did those offices of gallantry for Syl

"No use, old chap, you. shall lose your.

my cousin. • • • „
I don't think I succeeded very
I ant very sure I did but fall in love 'with'
her. My eyes 'itsted ell the time upon
the fair and. graceful hurts-woman who

StrtrmNo A DISPUTE.—In Dr. Clark's
I life and times of Bishop Heckling the fol
lowing anecdote is related :
"Mr. Hedding sat between the two men,
and the wife of each nut beside her hem
hand. They began to talk over the sub
ject of dispute, (relating to the division of
some property.) when one of them sudden
ly warmed up and called the other a liar,
Instantly both started to their feet and rush
ed at each other, the females screamed - and
a general alarm ensued. . Mr. Hedding
proved himself equal to the awkward em
ergency. lle rushed between them; seiz
tteach by the collar of his coat; and with
his herculean frame and strengththeld them
ut arms' length, face to face, but unable to
reach each other. They -.struggled for
a moment, but found themitclves as though

calmed, Mr. Hedding suddenly exclaimed.
"Let us pray," ant! kneeled down string
leg the two men with him to their knees
upon the floor. Still roiling hie grasp he
prayed lot them in a most fervent and
powerful manner.. When Ite.had closed,
he shook the one he held in his right hand, m
