She would love him, it is tree, 'dearly

She would wed him, because her fortune
could assist his efforth for the good nf his
country and his °Wit . distinction. She
would have bestowed that fortune
him withoullier hand, but she knew his
pride too'well to dream he would aceept'it,
and her resolution pas taken.
For hiS life Mr. William Harwood Could
not liave told whether-his intended bride
had any claims to beauty or to talent. "He'
saw Amt her . manners were refined, he
.knew that her fortune 'was immense, and
he _was satisfied. • He heeded not—he
never dreamed of the tidies of her heart
and Mind. But '‘vhile ambition and selfish
ness blinded his eyes to her superiority, it
was not so ,With others. A dazzlingly fair
complexion, soft,-wavy hair, of the palest
brown, hazel eyes, iiiiensely dark and
:fringed with long, thick lashes of the same
hue, a straight Greek nose, a mouth of ex

Sweetness and spirit were charmingly com

—these were the le'a'st of her attractions.
A thousand..nameless graces, a thousand
lovely bUt indeicribable enchantments in
manner, loa and tone, betrayed the soul
within; and yet with all this, she was so
_modest, so timid, so thorougly feminine
and gentle in all her ways and words, that
.the world. never dreams & of calling her a
beauty, or of making her a belle. It was
thube she loved that she ench,cd,
She stood like a beautiful statue by his
side. She quelled her tears—she hushed
her heart, and spoke in accents calm and

bind them for lift , unto each other...* She
received the congratulations of friends and
acquaintances without a sigh '°a blusG,
sign of emotion--modestly but coldly.--
liven Harwood himself. wondered at her
strange self-possession, and while he won
dered rejoiced that she had so little feeling
to trouble hint with. But when her father
approached to say farewell, and lead her
to the carriage', which was to bear her far
from home, her proud resolve gaVe way I
She threw herself on his breast and sob

and frightened child, till her husband, as
tonishod at such a display of emotkin in;
nue usually so quiet Mid subdued, dreW
her gently away,"and seating himself be
side her in the carriage, ordered the driver
to proceed.
Harriet withdrew from his arm, pleaded
fatigue, covered her face with her veil, and
soon succeeding in •conquering every out
wiird sign of emotion, sat still and silent•
during the journey.
It was the evening of the wedding-day.
The bride had retired to4ress for dinner
and Harwood sat dreaming beftire his li
brary fire, when a note was put into his
band by a foolmalt: What was his sur
prise at the contents !

, Seeing Harriet only at ineals,
and ~b
sorbed in his ambitiotis schenies, *Harwood
at last almost forgot that lie 'had a wife,
.the poor girl .stroye • to content herself
in her own silent and secret ivorship of her

She mingled sometimes with the gay ; hut
society had no excitement for a mind like
hers. She could•not long .enjoy a convey

Way interested. •For, while the poetry of
feeling was her clement, Harriet was not
an intellectual persoM—she was more spiri
tual thatk intellectual—her heart supplied
the place of a mind.
One evening, 'at a-party, ajoung Eng
lish officer approaching Harwood exclaim
ed, "Aly dear sir! do you know, an you
tell me the name of that . beautiftilcreiture
leaning by the window ? There, that pale,
,eyed.girl in, white ! • Yoll
,ought to
know, for she has been looking at you,
With !lei whole soul in the look; for the last
five minutes."
flarwood looked up ; he caught the elo
quent gaze of those beautiful eyes; he saw
he - r start and instantly avert them, wiih.a
sudden bush, as if detected in a crime, and
strange and new emotions thrilled his heart.
The hour had come. Love, the high--priest
had suddenly 'appeared at the altar, and the
fire was kindled at length, never again• to
be wholl)? . extinguished. For the first time
moused 'to a Sense of her sing , ;lar 161,4-

den plission , for himself, he colored, smiled,
and seemed so confused, that his friend was
turning away in surprise. But Harwood
recovered himself, and taking his arm, led
him forward andintroduced him to his wife.
•A's we have said before, Harwood was
by no means without a heart, but his giant
intellect and his situation in life lisd hither
to rendered him unconscious of so valua
ble a possession. Alter lituening for a few
moments impatiently to Itarriet's graceful
and noire cOnversatMn with • the handsome.
young officer, he drew her baud within his
arm, and pressing it tenderly, whispered,
"Let us go home,dear [Harriet; I am weary
of this scene."
"Dear Harriet I" Wasshe'dreaming!—
the words, the tone, the look, thedight ea
res, all thrilled to her inmost heart, Her
eyes filled with tears, and trembling with
the . heavenly eestaey of the moment, al
most fainting, indeed, from excess of emo
tion, she murmured,
"Yes, leCtin go at once."
He sprung into the carriage - alter het,
and drew her to his heart. "Oh, William !
do you—do you' love me ? Can It indeed
be true ?"
"My wife I" '
The scene is sacred—let the curtain tall:
"More close and close his footsteps mild;
The magic music in his heart
Beats quirk and quicker till he find
The quiet chamber tar"
At en tmustially 'early hour; the next
evening, Harwood returned to his now
happy home, and; hastening up the stairs,
paused at the door of his wife's boudoir,
arrested by her voice within. She ,was
singing, in a low and touching voice, and
with exquisite taste, , asimple song which .
he had' never heard befdre. Though na- .
itraliyvery find of music, it had happen

Mr. Harwood had just returned from a

'n two or three important projects, and,
lisgusted with the uncertainty atteifding
its pursuits, lie had suddenly determined
o abandon 'politics altogeth4. His heart
~ e arned toward his sweet
.wife as it had
lever yearned berme. Ile had been away
from her so long ! Ile Heeded her love
now, he needed her soft voice to soothe
and comfort him, and he came prepared,
not only to receiyOitto give consolation.
He' entered her boudoir softly, intending to
surprise her. She was reclining on the
sofa asleep—pale and sad, with tears still
lingering,. on her lashes, and her fait
hair .streaming from herrekdish brow—
her lips half :vartedVanil sighing as she
slept, she loOked, so enchantingly lovely
that .he sprung forward to awaken her witli
a kiss, when a.paper, lying loosely in her
.hand,.arrested his attention. Ile drew itt i
softly from her. It was" addressed "To
My Husband," and thinking himself thus
justified in, reading it, he did so, with what
emotions may be better imagined than told; follows:

From the cradle to the grave we' occupy
tenfold More time in wishing for What Ave
Iraile not, than, enjoYing that which we
have. Where we once offer up praise for
benefits received, we twenty, times petition
the Father of mercies to add to the num
ber of gifts he alr,zuly has bestowed. ,
There 'is a restless discontent that seems
to cling to us like a leprosy. Give a child
un apple in each hand, and he will want the
one that remains on the table ; and give a
man thousands of gold and silver, and tens
of thOusands will become the object of his
desires. Experience warrants the belief,
that the possession of Europe and Asia
would excite a. yearning in our hearts for
Africa and America ; and that if to, those
the moon could he added, we shOuld never
rest in peace until we had obtained the sun.
As it was in our childhood and youth, so
has it been in our manhood. Object after
object has been attained with no better suc
cess. As he who picks - up shells on the
sea-shore always has one preferable in his
eye than in his haud, so we ever hope .10
add to our happiness by some new acquisi
tion. This is the case not with one only,
but with all.
We have never yet attained one earthly
advantage that has given us inure than a
temporary joy. We have Dever gained
aught , that has satisfied our desires. Is
this your experience ? I know it is. It
is mine. It the experienCe of It's
We have all blown our bubbles, and ran
after buitvrflies,in our childhood,Our youth,
and our manhood. The bubble has burst,
and the caught burerfly lias been crushed,
not yielding us half the satisfation that they
• -Oa
did when in the-air.
Who is there among us who can look
bark through the vista of three-score years,
without wondering that, being so frequent.:
iv deceived, he -could so confidently trust
the Nun' piOmistal future joy ? It is
in vain we try to deceiveourselves—
"Fortune may favor, Fancy May beguile, ' . •
Ilupe wane her golden wings, uud sweetly smile;
But sad Experience, with u blow n'ereast,
Siglihq with gai4, nod pnitaing to the Hsi,
Whispers, the fair illudon to destroy,
That joy unclouded is cot earthly joy."
When we were young, there was some
_ .
excuse for us; but %viler excuse lave we
now ? I speak to those who have gray
hairs on their heads ; and to those who 111,6;
no hair at all.
The homely adage teals-us that, "old
birds are not caught with chair." If this
be true, old birds are wiser than old men.
Shame upon us; but we aro continually
forgetting the good gifts of God; and pur
stung objects which are no better than chaff
when they are attained
