Like evening shadows creeping
Across the summer sky,
Come to our young hearts weeping,
The last, the fond good bye.
We list its tones in sadness,
While stealing on the ear$
We know that hours of gladness
With them will disappear.
As o'er the sea-ware dances
The sun's bright golden rays,
Has all that life enhances
Illumed our youthful day3.
Then ever, from the future,
A tearful sigh we'll give,
For those whose kindly nature
Have made it sweet to live.
OXLY A I'KIXTER J
Or, a Tale of tlc F. F. Vs.
AN INCIDENT RELATED BY GOV. FLOYD AT
THE "WHITE HOUSE."
Had I a talc to recount of the olden
time, laying the scene thereof iu England,
Trance, .Spain, or auy of the old countries,
to us associated with so much romance
and gorgeous graudeur, in which there
would be a plenteous sprinkling of lords
and ladies, priests and nuns, magnificent
palaces, haunted castles and gloomy mon
asteries, it would be far more acceptable
to the great masses than if the scene was
laid here iu this land of plodding Yan
kees, railroads, manufactories, and cot
ton speculations; nevertheless, I will en
deavor to spin a yarn, which, by the way,
is not altogether a yarn, but facts and
I had the pleasure of spending a few
days recently, continued Oov. V. with a
distinguished friend of mine in Rich
mond, and while there heard the follow
ing conversation between the wife and
daughter of my host.
"La ! me, what impertinence !" exclaim
ed Lizzie K. as she scanned a beautiful
colored note handed her by a servant.
"What occasions J'our surprise, my
dear?" enquired her mother.
"Itather s:iy indignation, mother, at
being asked, and even urged to take tea
this evening at Mrs. Downer's, the tan
ncr s wile.
"And why should you not, my dear ?"
"Think you it would be proper, mother,
for me, the daughter of Judge K oneofthe
wealthiest and most distinguished men of
the city, to associate with such low-bred
"Indeed, my daughter, if they are me
chanics, they are a people well to do in
the world, respectable, pious, agreeable,
and every way worthy of your acquaint
ance." "Ileally, mother," continued the young
lady, as she tossed her pretty head, "I'm
disposed to think differently, and so far
from encouraging, I prefer always being
removed as far as possible from the la
boring classes. Besides, how is it expect
ed that I should enjoy myself in converse
with such people, whose only talk would
be about the stocks, the market, aud their
own private concerns. Quite an intellec
tual Me-a-U-te would it be, mother, dear?"
"Oh ! fie, Lizzie, fie I But 1 am to
blame for this. I've shown you too much
indulgence ; you are spoilt ; so I must even
now set about repairing my garden, and
fduek out the wecda and tares ere it be too
"Come sit down beside me, Lizzie, and
I will give you your first lesson of worldly
experience, by relating to you a story,
which I trust will lower your pride, and
make you a better woman. A woman
with no pride uiy daughter, is but a dron
iug, easy creature, but one with too much,
is haughty, niggard and Belfish ; both the
extremes contemptible and mean. Be
then neither too fashionably dressed nor
too slovenly, too devout nor too worldly.
A mere butterfly in the world of fashion
and pleasure, making but small preten
sions to religion, is a character bad enough,
but worse to my thinking is the fiery
zealot, on the other hand, who has too
many rigiJ virtues; who is continually
railing against the world, displeased at
anything like social and rational enjoy
ment, and shocked at the least merriment,
dancing, playing or any amusement that
the heart, in its fullness and gladness,
prompts the young aud sprightly to in
dulge. So, then, avoid extremes of every
description." But to the storv :
Sixteen vcars ago, Salem, m Virginia,
was one of the most lovely villages imagi
nable ; situated in the heart of the great
vallev of Viririnia. vet commanding a
magnificent view of the bold outlines of
the Allcghenies and the Blue Ridge.
Tho village contained no buildings of note
save two; one of them, a magnificent ten
ement, the princely residence of one of
the "old Virginia aristocracy;" the ether,
the only Inn, a small, quaint, yet pleasant
house nestled in the centre of the town.
The proprietor of the one, a wealthy plan
ter and distinguished officer of the State;
the other a poor widow, whose only living
depended on the profits of her table, which
were but scant, as there was little travel
ing done, at that day, through this retired
village. And the advent of a stranger
was always a subject of curiosity and in
terest to the good townsfolks, as it is al
ways so in the secluded villages and inns,
in the out-of-the-way places of America.
To this little Inn a gaily dressed, yet
weary worn, traveler picked his way one
evening in the autumn of 18. The
buxom hostess, and her tidy daughter, ,
were all life, and frisked about bestirring
the savory viands, delicious cakes and
eggs, much to the satisfaction of our
hungry traveler, who appeared to be a
young man of some twenty summers, tall,
commanding, ot nne appearance aud pleas
ing manners. He soon, by dint of frank
ness and suavity of manner, insinuated
himself into the good graces of the hostess
and daughter, with the latter of whom
lie appeared to be much struck, for she
was as lovely as she was neat aud grace
ful. "Possessing charms not unlike one al
most equal to whom I adore," exclaimed
the young traveler admiringly, as he
placed himself before the sparkling fire
after finishing his repast, "and expect ere
long to lead to the altar, aud with whom
you are doubtless acquainted, as she lives
only in the mansion above the village as
"What! Emma White?" enquired the
hostess. "Even so my good dame; I met
her at the Springs some months ago, be
came enamored with her, wooed, won, and
am now come to claim my bride."
"She is a beautiful creature, indeed!"
interposed Augusta, the hostess' daughter,
"but somewhat proud as is her father."
"Not so, indeed, gentle Augusta, if she
has pride it is nothing but nature, maid
enly pride, which every lass should have.
And you say, 3Iiss Augusta, she is quite
well, well, I will let this pleasing intelli
gence restrain me to-night, and to-morrow
I will give the fair enchantress, I
trust, an agreeable surprise."
Early next morning as etiquette would
permit, the young man set out with buoy
ant heart and high hopes to the mansion.
But we will precede him and look in on
his fair bethrothed.
In a magnificent parlor of the mansion,
sat Emma White and her mother, the one
thumming a piano, aud the other interro
gat:ng a servant.
"And you say, Sambo, he lodged last
evening at the Inn?"
"Yes, Misse, de cook say he dare now."
"Well, you can retire and so Ma, it is
even as I expected ; I thought it was him
as he rode past last evening."
"Well, Emma, how do you intend to
bluff him off ; I'm thinking it will be a
shameful and delicate business."
"Shameful indeed! WThen attorney
Logan introduced him tome at the Springs,
he brought him forward as one of the law
students, and not as a poor printer as he
is I'll never forgive Mr. Logan.
"He is not to blame my dear, he is his
pupil, didn't the letter say he was a jour
neyman printer at A , but in con
sideration of his promising abilities, Mr.
Logan undertook gratuitously to bring
him to the bar?"
"Well for all that I'll never marry a
poor printer. I did have a tender regard
for him once, and when I gave him my
hand I deemed him somebody, so I acted
from the promptings of the heart, but now
I'll be ruled by my better judgment."
"Well please yourself in that matter,
my dear, I'm disposed to think honorably
of , but la! me, if he isn't at the
Scarcely had she done speaking when
our hero entered, and with a heart over
flowing with gratitude and love, sprang
forward to greet the object of his idolatry,
but imagine his surprise and dismay wheu
he received only in return a cold, distant
courtesy, which froze his blood and root
ed him to the spot. Bewildered and as
tonished at such greeting from his fair be
trothed, he turned for explanation to the
mother, who, perceiving the general em
barrassment, stepped forward, and offering
him a seat, explained to him that since
her daughter's return from the Springs,
she had, after mature reflection and ex
amining her heart, thought it best to dis
solve the engagement that had been made
The ruddy cheeks of the suitor became
of an ashy paleness, and his bloodless lips
quivered like an aspen leal, as lie laiter
"And wherein is my offence? have I
merited this f good heavens ! and, is this
the gentle, the tender, the confiding Em
ma White ?"
"Sir, this is not the stage of a theatre
to enact scenes," now spoke up the daugh
ter, "let it suffice to know we are ever to
be strangers to each other. You attempt
ed to deceive me and pass yourself off for
a gentleman, when it turns out you are of
the working classes, only a printer, a
portionless journeyman, a fortune seeker.
If 3rou had an honorable profession, sir.
and was of a good family, as I once fondly
tnougnt, we would be united, but as it is
I cannot and will not descend so low I"
and as the young lady thus spoke, she
tossed her head, and with a look of inef
fable scorn aud contempt, proudly sailed
out of the room.
Overwhelmed with dismay and stung
to the quick, the young man sat paralyzed
many moments, but recovering somewhat
of the shock, rose and staggered out of
Alas ! how crushed were his hopes now.
Deceived, slighted, wronged, confidence
betrayed, laughed and treated with scorn
and contempt by one whom he adored and
loved, alas ! too well, and all for beinsr a
"low bred, base mechanic !" And rush
ing madly to the Inn he sought his room
and threw himself desperately on his hum
ble cot, from which he did not rise for
two long, weary months ; for the unwont
ed disappointment and excitement of the
morning had brought on a burning fever.
rroui mom till night aud night till morn,
the patient raved a wild maniac, calling
and conjuring his Emma to come back to
him, aud with his impatience and quer
ulousness, wearied all about him, save
one. The physician despaired of restoring
him, and resigning him to the care of the
gentle Augusta, who watched at his bed
side night and day with unremitting assi
duity, bore with his imbecility, adminis
tered to his wants with kindness and sooth
ed his irritated spirits by the gentlest
words and treatment.
Finally, after the lapse of several weeks,
he began slowly to recover, and rcasou
returned once more. When having en-
irely recovered, he thanked the kind hos
tess and daughter with tearful eyes aud
heart overflowing with gratitude for their
kindness in watching over him in his weak
ness and infirmities, lie called Augusta
his preserver, his guardian angel, and told
her he owed to her his life, and that he
would ever hold her in grateful remem
brance, and though he was then about to
depart, and would not see her again for
years, yet when fortune smiled upon him
again, she should hear from him. Till
then he bid her a sorrowful, a tearful fare
well, and departed.
Years passed, and still the unfortunate
stranger was uuheard of, and almost for
gotten, by the good gossips of Salem, and
even by the one who caused his misfor
tunes, Emma White, herself ; yet there
was one in that little village who still gave
him a place, not only in her memory, but
also in her heart. It was the hostess'
Five years from the events just related,
Richmond was crowded to overflowing, for
the Legislature was in session, and had
brought its usual retinue of strangers, of
fice and pleasure seekers. It was by far
the gayest season the capital had seen for
many years ; and balls, parties, soirees,
and picnics followed each other with una
Gorgeous lights streamed from a score
of windows of one of Pearl street's state
liest mansion, and sounds of music and
revelry are heard within. Luscious and
sylph-like forms skip over the richly car
peted floor, and grave gentlemen sit com
fortably in the background, talking poli
tics, gossipping, and admiring the light
hearted, the lovely and happy beings around
them. We will draw near one of these
companies that one near the chandelier,
consisting of two gentlemen and a j-oung
lady and listen ; and as we are incog in
matters, but little harm will ensue if we
are caught evesdropping.
"It is just as you say, Colonel White,
the Legislature has done but little as yet,
still I think they have redeemed them
selves somewhat by one judicious act, in
appointing our young friend K to the
fifth judicial judgeship."
"A very proper appointment, sir, very ;
but yonder he is now see, the servant is
just ushering him into the room."
"La ! me, Pa," exclaimed the young la-
day admiringly, "how interesting he looks,
and fo young too, to be appointed a judge."
"He is a clever young man, Emma, and
able too, or he would not have been hon
ored with the responsible office just con
ferred upon him.
"How I should like to become acquain
ted with him : Pa, pray introduce him
, "Most assuredly 1 will do so, for here
he comes now.
A. pleasant evening to you,' gentlemen
Colonel White, pray how do you do ?"
"Quite well, quite well, I thank you,
1 ermit me to present vou to mv
daughter. Judge K , Miss White."
And with low deferential courtesy the
lady greeted the gentleman, and seated
him beside her. With manv an art and
wile did she attempt to amuse, please, and
insinuate herself into the good graces of
the promising young judge. But her ef
forts were in vain, her arrows were aimed
against a heart of steel, and the counte
nance of the judge the while wore a con
temptuous and sueering expression that
baffled all hearts and penetration.
"Heavens I what a face, how lovelv. how
angelic ! But methinks I should know
that countenance !" exclaimed the judge,
as he caught the beautiful black eyes of a
lovely lady in a distant corner of the room
riveted full upon him.
"Nhof the young ladv in the black
velvet mantilla ? ha ! ha ! that's my pro
tege ; she is an orphan her parent was a
Maure a; Hotel in balem, irnuia. so. be
ing left alone, I took her under my charge,
aud right useful I find her; she answers
both for a companion and maid. I would
not have brought her here, but she seems
so sad and melancholy that Pa would make
me bring her, thinking it might somewhat
revive her drooping spirits."
"It is, it is the pure, the irentle Augus
ta ! How fortunate ! Pray, Miss AVhite,
excuse me but I know you will, when I
inform you I am 'oufy a printer' the poor
mechanic you scorned, jilted and derided
many years ago in the little village of Sa
lem," and rising unceremoniously, the
young judge hastily crossed the room,
leaving the haughty girl covered with con
fusion and shame, to weep over her folly.
It was the lovely Augusta, aud with
doating heart, eyes sparkling with joy,
and countenance suflused with blushes,
the fair being welcomed the happy and
excited young man.
Much as Miss White suffered by the
gnawings of conscience, much as she up
braided herself, much as she grieved and
sorrowed over her past conduct, her sore
disappointment, her punishment, yet in a
tew weeks alter, when the admired Judge
K led the happy and envied Augus
ta to the altar, she could but acknowledge
that her punishment was just, aud that it
Judge K and his lady have lived
happily, prosperously and contentedly to
gether ever since, but Emma White, un
happy girl, is still a spinster an old
"So now, Lizzie, my story is ended, all
but the denouement."
" Dcwnuimcnt ?"
"Yes, for you must know, your dear
father is the hero, and I the heroiue ; he
was the 'base-born mechanic,' the 'poor
printer,' and I am the 'hostess' daughter.' "
"Pardon, pardon, mother !" and as the
young Miss threw herself into her moth
er's arms, she vowed never to be so selfish
and proud again.
"And j'ou will go to Mrs. Downer's this
"Oh ! that I will, mother, with pleas
The company began loudly to applaud
as he concluded his rem-
iuiscence, when he bid them cease, as he
too had finished all but the denouement.
"What is it ? what is it ?" rang around
"Why, nothing more nor less, than that
the hero of my story has just entered this
room," replied the Governor, as he pointed
to his distinguished and astonished friend,
amid the plaudits of the assembly.
A Noble Sentiment. Some true heart
has given expression to its generous na
ture in the following beautiful sentiment :
"Never desert a friend when enemies
gather around him when sickness falls
on the heart when the world is dark and
cheerless is the time to try a friend.
They who turn from a scene of distress to
betray their hypocrisy, prove that in-
tei est moves them. If you have a friend
who loves you and studies your interest
and happiness, be sure to sustain him in
adversity. Let him feel that his former
kindness is appreciated, and that his love
is not thrown away. Real fidelity may be
rare, but it exists in the heart. Who has
not seen and felt its powers ? They deny
its worth who never loved a friend, or la
bored to make a friend happy.
