'No, no, Lowndcs,' answer&l Mr. Gil

f.rmer had made, his friend touching the

ing that youth and nature were thus to be
cheated of their privileges by the assump
tion of the responsibilities of maturer age.
That Charlotte loved her infant with the
liveliest affection, is true ; but it was
rather the playful fondness of a child for
its plaything thati.the passionate love of a
mother for her first-born ; and although
she would delightedly feddle the infant
for a few minutes, yet .easily terrified by
the cries of the little creature, drawn • forth
by the awkward handling of its inexperienc
ed parent, she would quickly resign to
the soothing cares of its nurse, who, in
fact, dreaded the sight of Alto yoUng moth
er in the . . nursery. Once, indeed, after
having been admonished and lectured by
her husband on her •new duties •and re
sponsibilities, she took it in. her head, a
the iminent rick of life and limb of her
child, to wash and dress it herself, and
which was most terrified:under the opera
tion, mother or child, it would be diflieult
to say ; and very soon she resumed her
usual routine of life, only varied by occa
sional visits, to her nursery. Mr. Gilmer,
disappointed by the change he had hoped
to see in her character and twee; became
more impatient and less yielding than be
fore. •Had he, in the indulgent spirit that
should have . accompanied his age and
knowledge of the world, given way to
the joyous spirits and excitable feelings
natural to her youth, he would have won
to himself a heart naturally warm and af
fectionate, at the same time that he quench :
ed her ardent love of pleasure in' satiety.—
But, too selfish to put that constraint on
himself, he expected at once that calm,in

twenty-five years' devotion to the frivoli
