In the days of the good colony of Virgin

were based upon laws which, like these agile

weelthy"planter, living In what is known as
the Northern Neck. He was in all respects
a flank, open hearted. manly gentleman: bat
his estimate of his fellow men was bounded
upon the principles that governed the selec

She was Justeighteen, and budding into love
ly womanhood.. Not only was she beautiffil
in person, but her amiable disposition and
many dcwmplishmenta made her more than
ordinarily attractive, and half the gentlemen
of the Northern Neck were already sighing
for her love.
There was in the country at this time
young man who was already rising high in
the esteein of his neighbors. lie came of
good family, but was,. as yet, a poor young
surveyor, who had taught himself his pro
fession, and who had spent much of his time
in traversing. unknown rotes* with 'nothing
but his comma for his guide, and his chain
for his connialkion, locating lands and settling
disputed titles. lie was a model of manly
beauty, and excelled in the varied feats of
strength in which the olden time Americams
took such pride. Lie wascaim and reserved,
and there was about him a dignified sweet.

his frank independence of character. lie was
a great favorite with all who knew him, and
there waswo gathering to which he was not
Mr. G— seemed especially to like the
young man, and it was not long before he in
sisted that the latter should abandon all eel.;
emony in his visits to him, and come and - go
when he pleased. The invitation was heart
ily given, and its promptly accepted. - The
young man liked the plantec and he found
of thd beautiful Mary G— a very
strong attraction. The result was that he was
frequently at the planter's residence: so fre
quently, indeed, that Mrs. G— felt called
upon to ask her husband if he did not think
it wrong to permit him to enjoy such unre
served intercourse with their daughter. The

hoped his daughter knew her position too
well to allow anything like love fora poor sur
veyor to blind her to her duty to' her family.
Nevertheless Mary (3 was not so My
impressed with this conviction of duty as was
her father. She found more to admire in the
poor surveyor than in all her wealthy and
aristocratic suitors; and, almost before she
knew it, her heart passed out of her keeping
and was given to him. She loved him with
nil the honesty and devotion of her pure
heart ; and she would have thought it happi

and share his fatigues and troubles, no mat

Her spirit ilves-with God.- -
Oh that those gates would open, •
And she with outstretched hand,

Nor did she love in vain. The young man,
whose knowledge of the world• was after
wards so great, bad not then learned to con
sider as binding the distinctions which socie
ty drew between his position and that of the
lady. He knew that in all that makes a man,
he was the equal of any, one. He believed
that, except in wealth. lie stood upon a per
fect equality with Mary G—, and he loved
her honestly 'and manfully, and no sooner
had be satisfied himself Amon the stale of his
own" eelings than he.coufessed his devotion,
simply and truthfully, and received from the
lady's lips the assurance that she loved him
very dearly.
Scorning to occupy a doubtful position, or
to cause the lady to conceal aught from her
parents, the young man frankly and manful
ly asked Mr. G— for his daughter's hand.
Very ang,ry grew the planter as be listened
to the audacious proposal. Re stormed and
swore furiously, and 'denounced the young
man as an ungrateful and insolent upstart.
" My daughter has always been accustomed
to riding in her own carriage," he said. "lVho
are you, sir ?"
" A gentleman, sir," replied the young man
quietly ; and he left the house. -
The lovers were parted. The-Lady married
soon after a wealthy planter, and the young
man went out again into the world to battle
with his heart and conquer his'unhappy pas

Time passed on, and the young man began
to reap the reward of his labors. He had
never been to the hotise of Mr. Et— since
'his cruel repulse by the planter; but the lat

became familiar in every Virginia household.

Apothecaries are forbidden to sell 'liquorice.'

Tar. Swz.utEn Renoenn.—On a certain
occasion, .General Washington invited a
number of fellow officers to dine with him.
While at the table, one of them uttered an
oath. The General dropped his knife and
fork in a moment and in his deep tone, and
characteristic dignity and deliberation said
—"I thought that rte all supposed ourselves gen
tlemen." Re then resumed his knife and fork,
and went on as before. The remark struck
the officer like an electric shock, and, as was
intended, did execution, as his remarks in
.such cases were apt to do. No person
swore at the table after that ; and after din-
ner the officer referred to remarked to his
companion, that irthe (lateral had struck
him over the head-with his sword' he could
have borne it, but the home thrust which he
gave him was too much. It was too much
for a gentleman. And it is Wiped that it
will be too much for any one who.pretends
to be a gentleman.
. Tug Gnus TO TEM YOUNG MEN.—The lit
erary department of the luka (Miss.) Mirror
is edited by four young ladies. Their last
number contains the following paragriph,
which exhorts the young man to "depend on
lainp,em" "Most young men consider it a
misfortune to be born poor, or not to have
capital enough to establish themselves at
their.start in life in a good and comfortable
business. This is a mistaken notion. So far
from 'poverty being a misfortune to them, if
we may judge from what we daily behold, it
is aldessing ; the chances are more - than ten
to one against him who starts with a fortune.
Most rich men's sons die in poverty, while
many poor men's sons come to wealth and
honor. It is a blessing instead of a curse, to
have to work out their own fortune."
ONCE in church a youngster who carried
the collecting plate, before starting to col
lect; put his hand in his pocket as usual and
laid a cent, as ho supposed, on. the plate,
and then passed it around among the con
gregation, which numbered many Niung
and pretty girls. The girls, as they loored at
the plate, seemed astonished and amused,
and the young man, taking a glance at the
plate, found that instead of a cent he laid put
a conversation lozenge on it with the words,
"Will you marry me r . in red leticrs, staring
everybody in the face. None of the ladies,
however, closed with the odor. •

Here is an English story of the times, a
bank incident, which must not be lost: In
the_midst of the lattiezeitement, and at the
moment when everybody thought all the
banks were going to the d together,;ones
rushed into the bank of wh ich he was t< Stock
holder, and thrusting a certificate into the
clerk's face he said in baste : " Here, p lease
transfer half of that to James P. Smith." The
Berk looked at it and asked: "Which half,
Mr: Jones?" "I don't care which half," re:
plied Jones, puzzled at the inquiry. "Yon
had better go to the courts; . l can't make
the transfer without legal decision. If you
really wish to trawler your other half tour.
Smith we cannot do it here." Jones was con
founded. He-knew the banks were all in a.
muddle, but this was too deep for him. He
took his certificate from the bands of the ,
smiling clerk, and on looking at it, to ! it wa4
his marriage certificate! Being a printed
form on flue paper, and put away among Lis
:private papers, it was the first thing Mr. Jone 4
laid hands on when he went to the secretary
for bank stock script. He went home, ki44ed
his wife, glad to find she hadn't been trans
ferred to Mr. Smith, and taking the right pa
pers this time hastened down town in time to
get it all straight.

There is a proportionate falling off every

not a ailing off is the expenditures of the
government. We are pt ymg 122,000,000 of
useless interest per annum. We are pursu
