A It bough tales from real are usually consi
dered too tame and insipid fur those whose element
is the airy regions of romance, yet it sometimes
happens that the actual occurrences of this old
fashioned world, if embodied and described in the
rich and glowing language of some of our living
masters of fiction, would be considered too impro
bable and wonderful to be true, without drawing
upon the imagination for additional fitcls by way
of embellishment. Such, we believe, would be the

their inclinations was widely different ; though
their common feelings of attachment grew with
their growth, & strengthened with their strength.

the ardor of youthful imaginations; they drew
glowing pictures of the future, and rejoiced in the

tompered wink good sense, and mingled with the
innocence and sweet simplicity of country life,

to join his regiment, and repair to the field. Their
loves were plighted anew, vows of constancy in

days and hours of his'absence, rear the plants in
