THE BASHFUL COUSIN
BY 11IRS. HARRIET BEECIIER STOWE
Mistakes and mismaletstandings are not
such bad things after all, at least not always
so— circumstances alter oases. I remember
a case in potit. Every body in the country
admired Isabella Edmunds, and inirath-she
wrs an admirable creature, just made for ad
miration, sonneteering and falling in love
with, and accordingly all the country of
was in love with her. The columns of eve•
ery lierahl, Sentinel, Gazette, and Spectator
and all manner of newspapers, abounded
with.the effusions supplicatory of her wor
shippers. In short Miss Isabella was the
object of all the spare "ideality" in all the
region round about. • •
Now I shall 'not inforne,my readers how
she looked; you may just think of a Venus,
a Psyche, a Madonna, a fairy, and an angel,
etc., and On will hare a very definite idea
on the point. I must run on with my story.
I am not about to, choose this angel for my
heroine, because she is too much like other
other befornes for my purpose. But Mies
Isabella had a sister, and I think 1 shall take
"Little Kate," for she Ts always Spoken
of in the diminutive, wile some years young
er than her sister, and somewhat shorter in
stature. She had no pretentious to beauty—
none at all—in short sir, Ale looked very
much like Miss G., whom you admire so
much, though you always declare she is not
It requires a very peculiar talent to be
overstocked with good grace, and in this tal
ent Miss Kate excelled; she was placid and
happy by the side of her brilliant sister as
any little contented star that for ages had
twinkled on, unnoticed, and almost eclipsed,
by the side of the peerless moon. Indeed,
the only art or science in which Kate ever
made any great proficiency was the art and
science of being happy, and in this she so
excelled, that one could scarcely be in her
presence hall an hour without leeling.unac
countably happy himself. • •
She had a world of sprightliness, a deal of
simplicity and affection, with a dash of good
natural shrewdness, and alter all kept you
more in awe than you would suppose you
could be kept by such a merry, good natured
little body. Not one of Isabella's adorers
ever looked at her with such devout admira
tion as did the laughing loving Kate. No one
was so ready to run, wait and tend—to be up
stairs and down stairs, and everywhere in.
ten minutes, when Isabella was dressing for
a conquest. In short, she tvine, as the dedica
tion, of books set forth, her ladyship's most
lbedient and-devoted servant.
But lam going tomtit my story. I must
not keep you all night looking at plenum,,
so now to my tale, I.vhichSsliallconatirence
in manner and faun die following:
It came to pass' that a certain college vale.
tudinartan and a far off cousin of the two sis-
ters came down to pass alew months of hie
Tree agency at his fathers; and as aforesaid,
he had carried oft the first collegiate honor,
besides the hearts of all the ladies on the
front gallery at the 'commencement.
..So interesting, so polite! such fine eybs•
and ull-thar was the reputation he left among
the .. gentler sex. But, alas! poor Edward,
Whit did all this advantage to rim , so long
as he was afflicted with that unutterable, in.
cleseiibable malady, commonly rendered
bashfulness, a worse nullifier than ever heartl
of in Carolina; should you see him in corn-'
puny, you Would suppoie him ashamed of

"That strange knowledge that doth coma
We know not how, we know not whore'
As for Kate, she always gave all admirers
to her sister, ex.officio, so she thought of all,
the mon she had ever seen, she should like'
cousin Edward best for a brother, and she did
hope that Isabella would like him as she
did, and for some reason or other she felt as,
if she could not ask ally questions about it.
At last events appeared to draw toward a
crisis. Edward became more and more "brown
studious" every day—and he and Isabella had.
divers solitary walk° and confabulations, from'l
which they returned with a solemnity of
toilette's. More Over, The quirk-sighted little
Kate noticed that when Edward was with her
he seemed to talk not; when with Isabella
he was all animation and interest; that he weal'
always falling into trances and reveries, and
broke off the thread of conversation abruptly; . '
and in short, lied every appearadee of a person'
who would he glad to say something if ho only'
• '"So" said Kato to herself, "they neither of
them speak to me on the subject—l should
think they might. Bell I should think would,
and gdward knows I am a friend of his. 1 know
he is thinking of it all the time ; he might as
well tell me, and ho shall."
LTho next morning little Kato was sitting in
the Bull back parlor. Isabella had gone out.
ski ppit g, and Edward was,-xne knew not
where. Oh no, here he is, coming back into
the self same room. "Now for it," said the
little girl incotally: "I'll make a charge at Wm. ,
She looked up. Master Edward was sitting di
agonally on the sofa, twirling the leaves of his
book in a very unscholurlike manner : looked
out of the window, then warted up. to the side
board and then poured out three tumblers cf
water—limn be drew a chair up to the work ta
ble and ' took up first one ball of cotton;and
looked it all over, and' laid it down again ; then
he took up'the &lissom and minced up two or

"Now, cousin, VII thank you to pick up that

"Well cousin," said Kate in about ten min'
utas, "if you can't speak I ono I you haao some
thing to tell me, you know yoti have."
"Well, I know I have," said the scholar In a
tone of hearty vexation.
"There's no use of being so fierce about it,"
said the mischievous maiden, "nor of tangling
my silk and picking out all my needles and up
setting my work-box, as preparatory ceremo

“Well, sir, you have displayed a reasonable
fluency so far; don't you feel as though you

of all things to be your confidant.”
But Edward did not - finish ; has longue clove
to the roof of his mouth.and in appeared to be
going Into convulsions.,
"Well, 1 must finish for you I suppose," said
the young lady. "The short of the matter is.
Master Edward, you are in love, and have ex
hibited the phenomena therefore Foie fortnight.
Now you know I am a friendly little body, so

never said anything to her about it 7"
"To her—to whom 7" said Edward staTtlnw.

"No Alias Catharine, it's ; you I' said
abholar, who like most bashful persons, would

VOCAL MUSICIN GERMANY.
nr Wile. nIiRADIIIIRY
Vocal music is, in Germany deemed, of
such importance to all classes that, for gene
rations, it has been ;ntroduced by Govern
ment ae a prominent branch of popular edu
cation. The child enters school at the age
of eight years, and remains in the same
school until fourteen or fifteen. No parent
is allowed to remove a child from ono school
to another, (unless a change ol location ren
ders such removal necessary,) under a heavy
penalty. Commodious, convenient, and
pleasant school houses, and, thoroughly qual
ified teachers in all the respective depart
ments being piovided, there is no other rea
son for removal than a change of residence.
The advantages of remaining in the same
school and niftier the same instructors are
very great, and will readily suggest them
selves to the minds of all friends of educa
tion, whether parents, teachers or school
committees. One of these advantages is the
opportunity afforded to the teachers of stu
dying and becoming thoroughly acquainted
with the natural disposition, temperament,
talent or turn' of mind of the pupil. This, I
believe comprehends almost.evervthing else,
arid is -the corner stone of a thorough and
useful education, both mental and moral.
There seems to be three paramount reasons
for making music a branch of school education
in Germany and Switzerland. lat—lts power
as a direct moans of mental and moral disci
pline. 2d—lts attractiveness as an amusement
or relaxation from laborious Study. 3d—lts
advantages in after lite to the pupil, both as a
social and a religions being. In all of these
particulars it is considered of great importance;
and in the best schools I have viFitatl, viz:—
those of Leipzig and Dresden In Saxony, and
Zurich, and Berne in Switzerland. the popular
course has beeh to adapt each Music lesson to
,one or the other or all of these branches. To
be more explicit. The ntusio teacher either
gives al one season of the year hiS partictilar - :
attention to instruction in the elements of mu
and music reading; at another to rehearsal or
singing for relaxation or amusement; and at
another to practising the music of the church ;
or else, as is more generally the case, ffe com
bines the three departments in one, and each
lesson- has its proportionate share, viz: Ist,
practice of the music of the church, (clie l itir
singing;) 2d, instructions in musical notation;
3d, singing of cheerful juvenile song 4,, for
recreation. This arrangement pleases me
much. It affords great variety and does not
' . beconao tiresome to the pupils. .
The pupils begin to study note singing at the
ago of nine or tan years. Previous topthst they
sing chiefly or entirely by rote. This is con
sidered advantageous until the musical ear is
sufficiently trained and Cultivated. The scale
is first presented to the peril,. not by eight, but
by sound. The teacher sings it slowly and dis
tinctly till all seem to understand, or at least to
get scone idea of its construction, and the coat
parative relation of sounds ono to another.
After explaining something of the formation
of the scale, Its intorvols, 6ee. , the teacher writes
it upon the black board, or calls their attention
to it in the book, observing particularly the sit
uation of the semi-tones. Ho now tells them
that these characters (the notes) represent the
sounds they have just sung, and that each
sound has a name taken from oho of the letters
of the alphabet. This method is very thorough
althdugh somewhat lengthy. - The-pupils sing
almost ontrply from books, tho black-bbard be
ing'used merely for Illustration. The more
advanced classes of pupils aro Improved by the
frequent introduction find regular practice of
now and interesting music, rather thin by dry
and unconnected exorcises. Much time is
spent In the beet schools. in practicing the
vowels, merely articulating them for tho pur.
t, l i o i so of obtaining a good delivery, both in sing.
But one of the pleasantest features of all is,
that the pupils are not wearied by too hard stu
dy, or it they become a little fatigued at any
time, they lino* that some delightful recrea.
lion is to follow. Variety and entertainment
are mingled with instruction, and the pleasure
of half an hour's social singing is a sufficient
reward for persevering in any of the more la
borious and less interesting exercise. I was
much amused and delighted; on one avulsion,
to seethe young countenances beam with
smile of approbation, amounting to " I thank
you, sir," when.the teacher, eller a lesson of
close elementary study, said, "Now we'll sing'
something lively," for it is natural to children
to love that music best which is most like their
own natures—light, joyous and free: Now

Long Vitality of Seeds.
- so completely is the ground impregnated
with seeds, mat if the earth is brought to the
surface from the lowest depths at which it is
found, some vegetable :natter will spring
from it. I have also considered this tact as
one of the many sorpriiing instances of the
power and bounty of Almighty God, who
has thus literally filled the earth with his
goodness, by Storing up a deposite of useful
seeds in its depths, where they must have
laid through a succession of ages, only requi
ring the energies of man to bring them into
action. In boring for water lately, near
Kensington on the Thames, some earth was
brought up from a depth of three hundred
and sixty feet; this earth was carefully cov
„with hand glass, to prevent the
possibility of any other seeds being deposi

A Nice Little Specieli.
The following little gem ed a speech (says
the Columbus, A la., Tribune) was delivered at
delivered at the "Davis supper," in Montgom
ery, when the merriment was at its height. It,
was the apology of the spanker-La gentleman
we well stmt of—for not drinking, when invi
ted. Time and circumstances considered, it
was quite in hit. Here's the speech :
nWhy, Mr. Vico President, said Dr. .of M .
(for It was I ic,) when I think of swallowing a
glass of wine, guard-houses, calabooses,
rescues and bruised heads, dance before my vis
ion, and the rattles al assembled watchmen ring
in my ear. I have been in a guard-house in
every principal town In the Union, from New
Orleans to New York—from which last I had
to flee to Canada-to escape the uplifted arm of
the law. These:Chlamities befel me from the
use of intoxicating spirits. Mire sir, (proceed
ed Dr. C.,) wore I to drink but two &secs of
wino on this occasion, I ahonld mount this ta

misfortune should befal on, I forbid you, under
pain of =Uinta arrest, from smelling even an

From that time I continued to preach and
exhort on Sabbaths and Sabbath nights; and
on Monday morning my old master would
tie me up, and cat my, back to pieces with a
cowhide, so that it never had time to get
well. I has obliged to do my work in a
great deal of pain from day to day.
Thus I lived near a year and a half. One
Monday morning, my master, as usual, had
made my fellow-slaves 'tie me to a shade
tree in the yard, alter stripping my back
naked' to receive the cowhide. It was a
beautiful morning in the summer time, and _
the sun shone very bright.. Every thing
around looked very pleasant. He came up
to me with cool deliberation, took his stand,
and looked at me closely ; but the cowhide
hung still at his side; Hilfeiresofende Was at
work, and it was a great moment in his life.
Well, Jack, said he, your back is covered
with scars and sores, and I Bee no place to
begin to whip. You obstinate wretch, how
long do you intend to go in this way?
Why, master, just as long as the Lord wilt
let me live, was the reply.
Well, what is your design in it
Why, master, in the morning of the resur

the grave,?, intend to show these scars to my
heavenly Father, as so many witnesses of

He ordered them to untie me, and-sent me .
to hoe corn in the field. Late in the evening,
he came along, pulling a weed here, and a
weed there, till he got to me, and then told
'me to sit down.
Jack, said he, I want you to tell me the
truth. You know that for a long time yo - ur
back has been sore Irons the cowhide; you
have Indio work very hard, and are a poor
