It was the day on which the United

Alin.' it-a and some foreign houses. During

to liremen, thence to Erankfort, and over
the channel to Paris, a score of times. I
had affected negotiations with each part of

It ti as, therefore, with no small degree

the craft floating over the Anglesean waters,
the .kinerican steamer coming in ; and no

my senior, - was a total failure and the

state of the market abroad, and it would
be neveasary for me to remain another

that there would be plenty of interestit4
people in its social mixture—a mixture
that ran the whole diatonic scale, from her

elore out of service ; and it was with a
pleasant anticipation of something better
than rest, that I consigned myself to the
evening tram.
The next morning I sat down in His

for I have still an indistinct remembrance
of that morning's siesta ; • blending of
steamboats and consols, and then a sudden
shock which started me &nen my slumbers.
My two broad bedroom windows, which
faced the sea, were wide open; and quongki
them the wind was rushing. blowing
the curtains, and bringing on its bbrreeaatthh
the saline scents of the ocean ; I lay stili
as one after waking soddenly, inhaling filial
health-freighted air and listening to the
boom of the waves as they dashed against
the beach, when a grttlr and - bear, vole%
which sounded as 'proceeding fronii.bee

bic through which I ad passed, was 'Love.'
Hitherto, I had ignored its power; now, I
knew and welcomed it. I had always been

mankind into of ; I would not ac

incongruous and opposite tastes, and who

orders, raw shall demur? It is not the

I believe also, in magne tic properties
of the soul which are itective police,
and with unerring accuracy single out ob

the Eastern fable which declares that two
souls were always created, and sent out of
heaven together—a heavenly pair—but on
approaching earth they seperate, and en
teung into. mortal bodies, they work out
life's problem, each perhaps far from the

but each retaining through life the coun

wherever it might chance that I beheld
Eve's doughtlors, for my Ariadne ; but never
before this lied I heard the sweet voice
that was to lure me from the labyrinth to
the heights of joy. My heart palpitated
with surprise ; it knew its duplicate !
But it is unnecessary for me to describe
my emotions, and if it were they were too
sacred. I will go on to relate how—that
she might not suspect my vicinity—bow,

I del up my window curtains, that were

fearing that the sound of my boots would
alarm her ; and when I droned for dinner,
I shaved in cold water, which was my
abomination, because I knew whets blust

Before I seated myself in the salle de manger

Early that evening I took a station in
the Assembly rooms, which commanded a
view of the entrance, and after long and
faithfully watching my patience was re

furtive, and seemed constantly looking

it was Mr. C'onynghant, and my eyes soon
turned from him to the fair creature by
his aide. She wore a plain, white dress,
without other ornament than a bunch of
heather that fastened it at the throat ; her
countenance was pale and grave and she
stood in silent indifference, regarding the
gay scene about her, so unlike the silly

her curiosity with regard to us ;• now she
awoke to something like interest, especial
ly at my aneedotes of Andobon. I talked
of books, the arts and sciences She was
ready and fluent, showing not only a mind
of research, but of vigorous and independ

press her opinions, however they might
clash with mine, and I could not avid see

for change. I did not wonder that she had

—sometimes danced with her, and once
had the felicity of driving with her on the
cliffs. I had preserved the secret of the
ventilator, though in my own vindication 1
will state that I had Lever listened at it
since I had known my neighbors . I kept
my room in perfect quietudeland if I heard
voices in the adjoining room, I would go
out that I might not overhear the conver
sation; but there came a time, as I am
about to tell you, when I stayed. It was I
think about a week after my first acquaint
ance with the Conynghams through the
ventilator, that, as I sat busily answering
my Loudon correspondent, I became the
unwilling eaves-dropper to a violent alter
cation in the next room. I could not help
but hear it. Lady Gray was taking sides
with her niece against Mr. Conyngham ;
she complained bitterly enough of the
treattnent her sister's chill sustained from
an exacting father; he retorted by charg
ing her with duplicity, and his daughter
with disobedience, and declaring that in
this instance his authority should be
spected b both of them. I found, as they
that it all hinged on Herr Von
olt's proposals; it seemed that he had
• •ti accepted for months by the father,
and still persisted in pressing his suit, not
withstanding the aversion of the ladies.—
"He wished to marry at once," so said Mr.
Conyngham ; "he was tired of angling af
ter a mere girt whose head was apparently
turned after a Yankee adventurer .'
I felt a buzz in my ear' lii I heard the
sneering reinark ; it was so then ; they had
understood my attentions. I heard Lady
Gray say. in reply ; "You are foolish, broth
er, to fancy such a thing ; and Bee- is too
sensible to encourage a stranger."
Bess said nothing, and I was startled to
hear the old gentleman say : "Look daugh

decided that you will go with him A

upon his daughter that necessity alone had
thus hastened the marriage. and that they
must make the best of it. lie then went

"Yes, that is it, you must run off: I will

"Yes, aunt," replied Bess, after a little,
"I think that is the beg way for me to
adopt in this emergency ; I thank you for
the help which I so much need."
"No thanks, darling, and the sooner it is
arranged the better ; I will go and see
about it."
Directly she left the room, I raised my
self upon the high chair by the opening in
the wail ; I was irresolute ; I hardly durst
look in, and, yet I must do it : I must let
her know that 1 had heard it all, and that
she had a friend to help her. I cautiously

a quietly but with o face pale as snow.

Bess met me, as she promised, on the
-beach. Lady Grey, whose presence I had
no reason to regret, was with her, and was
a strong advocate in my favor. She said
that we could not ever hope to change Mr.
Conyngitam's prejudices ; his daughter was
a minor, and still subject to her father's
control and disposal : and though die would
not advise ns, she yet would not withhold
her emsent, if we concluded to fly togeth
er. After saying go much, she „kindly
walked of, leaving me to urge my cause,
which was indeed her cause, also, with Bess.
I s uc c eeded so well that she promised to
marry me that night. The words had
barely escaped her lips when we met \'on
Bolt, who scowled upon me, and gave my
companion companion a glance of distrust
and displeasure. So soon as he was out of
sight, I left the ladies and hurried up the
flint* street to the parsonage. The old
clergyman was quite willing to come down;
he had already, he, said, promised to mar
ry a couple at No. 54 at nine o'clock, and
he could easily come down an hour earlier
to No. O. I designated my room as the
place to meet me ; but we had decided
that the ceremony should be
. performed in
lady Grey's parlor, a room adjacent to Kiss
Conynham's own. After concluding the ar
ran4etnenta with the clergyman and ob
taining a license, I hastened back to pre
pare my In , and send the depot.
At eight o 'cl o ck lg everything on my wt
was ready, and I sat in the large arm chair
beneath the ventilator, waiting for the sig-

Only one moment was I confounded, in

the question

"She must," I firmly replied.
"Well, we will abide by her decision,"
she answered. I jumped up. and in half a

herself of it 't
"Yes." was her quiet reply.
The word was no sooner spoken, than I
began to cut away with my knife, a piece
of the pennel of the door, in which revolv

was soon removed, and the ventilator free
of incumbrance. I reached my arms
through, whispering to the t•embling vic
tim to come at once. She sprang up with
out hesitation, and in five minutes she was
safely by my side. I gave her a glass of
wine, and then hastened to put back the
window in its place, that the vacuum might
not excite suspicion.
Bess had but a short time to compare
herself before the clergyman entered. Ho
began the ceremony directly, and I w.t..
soon the husband of the loveliest girl in
the world. As I was paying my five pound- i
marriage fee, I heard a door unlocked in
the adjoining room, and a loud exclama

by what other wily could my Wife have come

In Dickens s Ail (he Year Round we find the

said to be more closely allied, in structure, to
the human form, of any of the brute creation.

Couple with this a deep lead-colored skin, much

teeth (in the males) of huge size, a receding

lowest and most forbidding type of human
physiognomy. The neck is short, the heed
