I had been reared from early childhood in
the house of a wealthy, dhildlees uncle in the
city. I was very young, and had no idea -of
society, except what I gained . from being a
looker-on at my aunt's semi-anneal, stiff and
for Mal parties, where the company was very
&menus and epatslively stupid.
My uncle had died very suddenly, without

of his property, leaving my aunt with a com
paratively small income, while I, after having`

quitting business entirely, had- gone to
live on a little farm in'the interior of theState,'
had married,- and was now surrounded by a
large disorderly, beisterouslatnilY.
In this uncongenial home I was stilidenly,
thrust from the refinements of my life in the
house of a wealthy - citizen. 1 - ..was - sity - and
unhappy. -I had.-never been accustomed to
the companionship of children, but I-- soon
found that whenever I eitrank involuntarily

under her influence. . , , ' • . '
Evcry'instiustlve Indulgence in the tastes

terrified by the good-natured boisterousness of
the yo . ung 'people 'asse'mbled' that I mentally ,
resolved never to gengain. Notwithstanding;
I found myself once more in the same circle,

been scorned, and my indignation
. was un
boUnded. I Wrote'to my aunt, telling her all
in.no'lneasured phrase, and begging her to
send for mo to live with her once more, if pos
sible. Her answer was to come at once, and
I departed, much to the consternation of 'cloy
father and the ill-concealed delight of his wife,
w'no hated mo more than ever since she heard
of Colonel Holme's remark. .
I left a little unto for Learyler,..Who was ab
sent at the time; saying that thesongagement
had better end, and releasing him fully and
unconditionally. .I wrote and sealed the note
without hesitation or faltering, though it coot
Me a severe pang to do no.
.. I did not know until I had been settled in
my aunt's home a week, and my letters, in a
package directed in Leander's hand, arrived
withent a lino from him, Bow 'I had hoped
through all that he would not connect to be
released, but would still cling , to me. '••
But ho, too, bad his indignation—ho was
hurt that I should have arranged * formy de
parture without consulting him, and he was
pained at the coldness of my note. Bci, thro'
the faults'of others, and misunderstanding of
their own, two hearts that really and truly
lo'ved were severed. Alas! that the story had
so meny.counterport •

On looking back I con 'see that I was • al
ways. wahing, waiting with an undefined ex;
pectation of something that never came. W.,aso
it for Leander that. I waited ? lf it was; I
never achnoWledgml it \ to myself, but it was
with a terrible pang', a dumb but• very real

_my first_l_appeartince in_seciety,i_so_ellooked

the "Court of Death" leaked insufferably
bored, that I was warned to keep myself in

Unfeeling parent! lie-touched my tender
point then ; for, up to that hour, I had never
discovered anything on my face, in that local
ity, but a broken arch of downy fur—very un
prorniaing as a symptom, and as a foundation
utterly defiant of hair dye or burnt cork. It
seemed to me that I stood in rather: an un
promising light as regarded that ultipia Mule
of young misses' hopes—matrimony and a fi
sal Battlement, but I firmly made up my mind.
that I need not expect my. four predecessors
_to bo my four precedents in the matrimonial
line, and so I prepared to launch forth. As
the paternal income- was annually absorbed in
...dry goods, boots and shoes," for the Thomp
eon dynasty, I could not rely on g"plum," in
which, as children take a pill, I might be dex
terously administered to some poor billions
soul, so, after fearful perplexity, I resolved
to devote myself to literature. Shall I ever
forget my tedious jobs with Pope and Milton,
my ghostly encounters with the ancients, or
my ithortive boribgs into 'Whatley's Elements.
Many a drowse overtook me just as the fallen'
angels assembled to war, and I never found
out who came off beat, or oven if they fought
at_all. Man'y_a...time did_ I plunge MO the
muddy depths of syllogisms, and an regularly
came - np to the surface like a puff ball. But
ray father began to lookup° me as a celibacy.

that I have no doubt, had I been out off at
that rare ripened state, the village cemetery
would have been adorned with my classic bust

and 3 erary pamphlets gracing my head like
drapery. I can't keep back a pitiful sigh
sometimes, when I think bow feeit looses its
value when over-ripened. Just as I had got
