THE UNEDUCATED WIFE.
The snow continued to fall, and the roads
were impassable; the horse had disappeared,_
and Alberilif no alternative but to wait
the clearing. To find his way was impos
sible; besideS, he would' have staid with a
more trilling excuse, so much was her inter 7 _
ested lathe beautiful Isidore. 'Weeks pass
ed and Albert still lingered, endeavoring to
procure a horse and guide.
Conversing with the old gentleman he
learned his sad story; learned, that fired
with ardor in the cause of liberty ho had
left a delightful-home and bisiovely daugh
ter Marion, the Mother of Isidore, in the
care of a favorite sister, and embarked for
this country, where he remained during the
war, constantly, drawing on his own funds.
Ffteling certain of the final success of the
American cause he had no_ doubt'of being
remunerated for all. In the mean, Marion
was married .to an interesting. young Ger
,the old general persuaded" and
finally prevailed on him to•join * the army.
The unfortunate young man was severely
wounded . in the first campaign, which cans.

general. grieved to the heart that ho had•
been the means of interrupting so much
laPpitiess„ promised his 'daughter that he
would come and spend the rest of his days
with her as soon as his clainiti were settled,
which - - ho thought wenld be speedily.—
At the close of the year she wrote to inform;
,that if he ever wished to see her alive he
must come soon, as she .felt slio could not

DUCIT AMOR PATRIAI PRODESSE CIVIBUS--
paying all his debt's, he had but a thousand
pounds. Embarrassed -with the little girl
(for his own sister was dead
. and he had no
near relation) he concluded to write to Ma-
lame Waldorf, the,aunt of Isidore, her fa
h_or's only sister, and requested her_to_take_
he charge of orphan until he could come
and claim her. He wrote that his adopted
country was indebted to him for services and
expenditures, mid ho doubted not that _he
sl►ould l paid principal and interest, and
that he should then be enabled, when settled
in his own house, to send for his grand:
She answered it• immediately, and after,
as the general said, many sage remarks,
concluded by say ing—"she had done all in
her power to prevent her brother's leaving
his pleasant home and lovely wife to follow
a phantom—a will-o' the wisp--- 7 -which he
called glory. It had 'led hint, where slit
expected, to death! That General Charl
ton had made him forget what he had been
taught at home, that true patriotism did not
consist in running after liberty, but in doing
our duty as fathers, husbands, and children
in the station and in the country where
Providence has placed us. -That she de
clined taking the little girl, and that if he in
tended to forsake his native country; he-Inad
better take her with - him and make a sav
age of her at once."
Vexed and troubled-at this severe re
proof; he determined to quit the country
forever and fake Isidore with him.
Ile Was soon quietly settled near Phila.-
delphia, where he waited patiently a low
time; but us last weary and disheartened,
finding his funds gone, and fearin,, that even
his friends were tired of him, ho took the
little girl, mid retired quite back . into the
country to hide himself and his sorrows
-from the world.
Ono day being in pursuit of game, he
met an old Indian chief, whose life ho had
once saved in a skirmish, taken him to his
tent and kept hini until he was able to go
back to the tribe. Sanaqua entreated him
logo with him:.
"My nation" says ht. "are grateful; they
will love the white warrior who saved their
chief's life—they will make a house and
give him corn—he can himself slwot the
deer—come with me."
The old man went, and true to the word
of the chief; they supplied -km with every
thing to support lite. The little Isidore
they almost worshipped, called her by eve
ry tender epithet,and brought her every dain
ty they could find; but as he concluded, he
said, "Am I not supported by charity--
by the charity of savages, while my country
men refuse to share with mo the blessings
which I have toiled and bled to obtain!"
lie trembled and turned pale, his limbs
seemed to lose their strength, and but for
the support of Fitzgerald he would have
sunk to trit. 'floor. Ho tried to sooth and

and take him, with Isidore, to his own pater

when he . took Isidore's !land instead of
speaking, he only pressed it to his lips, and
raised his eyes to bers. She was pale as

away, leaving her leaning against the door.
Isidore had never seen any one to love
but her grandfather; she was gratelid to the
Indians tbr their goodness to her, but Fitz

conceived, and she looked up to him with
such devotion and reverence that ho was

\A Month passed, - and no tidings of Albert.
The old general had been quite ill lhr some
days. Isidore had made a bed of dried
leaves and bear skins near the fire, and ex
hausted all her little skill as a nurse, but his
pale looks and fitultering voice alarmed her.
One evening after a restless day — SlM 'knelt
down beside him to bathe his temples, and
began singing the evening hymn, but the
general drew her close to him, and putting
aside the glossy curls that hung over her pot ;
ished forehead, said, as he gaZed on her,
"I have made ship Wreck of the
nesq of all that I loved: As yew aunt said
--I have followed a phantom—l fear some
thing has _happened to our friend Albert,
and.my stay here is short:"
Isidore shuddered, trembled, and seemed
almost fainting. .
"Grieve not for me,'!he said. "I am an
man, and scarc_ a expect to remain much_
longer with you. Should you see no more
of Fitzgerald, get the Indians to take you to
the nearest seaport, and go to Germany to
your Aunt Waldorf': She is noble and well
edUcated, and cannot, when she sees you,
refuse you her protection. But you may
trust our young friend without fear."
He drew her head close to his bosom and
raising his eyes to heaven, he seemed for a
while absorded in tliought. The noise of
voices disturbed tbem, the door was thrown
open, and Fitageraltrwith a joy-beaming
countenance exclaiming, "I have come for
you, my dear sir,"—but the pale cheek and
trembling hand checked his eagerness, and
when he took the old man's, hand ho was
startled at its feverish hoat.
"Yoh are ill," said he, "but you mill I
trust, soon be better, for I . have many com
forts for you in my snug warm vehicle."
The general looked kindly on him, press
ed his hand and sighed deeply. The Indi
an entered with his baggage which he assist
ed him to open, and ho produced many lit
tle comforts 'that seemed to revive his friend,
for he sat up and conversed quite cheerfully.

was silent, but recovering hinself he said,
"I will protect and defend her with my

Give her to me for a wife !" The old man
started, and looked up to Fitzgerald—
, "'Wife! wife!—she is a mere baby."
"I know she is yoting,_ but she is old-e
-nough to take good care of you, My dear sir,
and old enough to make me happy."

voice of Isidore in the next room singing
one of her favorite hymns, put: all reason ,
and reflection asleep—
„She must be mine, father if you.do not

The general smiled—
