AM I A'COLD COQUETTE?
OY CATHERINE H. WATERMAN.
THEY tell me I am volatile,
An adept in my art.
Because I've many spots to fill
Within airy loving heart.
Th-y tell me I am fond of of change,
'And, like th' inconstant bee,
From sweet to sweet, I love to range,
All fetterless and free.
But yruld they look into my breast;
Where young fond thoughts have met,
5.1 e how their deep impressions rest,
They'd say I'm no Coqtette,
My heart from childhood's early days
Hath in its uncheck'd flu v,
Scatteed the sunlight of P.s rays /
In a perpetual glowi.
With gushirg tenderness i, t.lung
To all around, above;
To every bud and flower that sprung,
For it was made to love.
A rd'iNith tin imsparing hand,
It gathers flow'rets yet.
And loves alike the minglfd band.
Am I a cold Coquette?
There'are. deep tones wi hin my heart,
They've slept the sleep of years;
Why should I wake them, but to sta - t
The Unavailing tears.
They are, as hal ps,. too finely strung
For stranger hands to sound,
And careless fingers o'er them sung
Would probe an unheard wound.
Ifjoyoui :realities are o'er,
Bright fancies glad me yet; •.•
My bark of hope was wrec'd near shore—,
Am I a cold Coquette?
But if to loVe the sunny earth,
The bright and glorious skie-, •
The summer buds that spring to birth,
• In rainbow tinted dyes:
And joy in all that care beguiles,
And from the many claim
Afreetionciond and cheering smileS,
And friehdship's sacred flame;
To hold them to my heart, and still

Is to he weak and volatile—

L INKS ADDRESSED TOS.O
Cap I forget thee - while there's life 4
Within my young and ardent frame,
My bosom burns with feelings rife,
I blush not now to name.
The tie that binds our hearts is one,
Misfortune neer can sever,.
And when the task of duty's dyne.
Well live in love forever.
Thni fate has now decreed that we,
Must part to meet no more;
Vet on the page of memory,
As brilliant us before.
Shall be the hours that we have spent,
When pleasure's sunny ray,
Beamed brightly from her firmament.
And plenty led the way.
Then think of him whose destiny.
Is dreary sad and dark,
ith but the star of memory.
My lonely path to mark.
If fortune e're again Should smile;
And happiness once more,
Resume its wonted throne awhile,
Then sorrow would be o'er,

(Tr; be continued)
It was just then that the gly said fash
°liable Mr. Leeson presented himself as
his rival. Ile was a young man of pol
ished exterior, and of prepossessing man
ners. And havingof course, tact enough
to conceal his real character, he was a
favourite with Mr Irving. Without much
difficulty he obtained that gentleman's
sanction for his addresses to his niece.
Mr. Irving was flattered by the prospect
of a coronet, and imagined that there
would be but little difficulty in procuring
Ellen's consent to become Lady -
Mrs. Irving did not t regard this matter
with the same composure as she had look
ed on the attentions of her nephew. Her
first wish was, 00 , her daughter's hus
band should be a religious character. She
telt! her 4rother-in-law, however, that she
had made rip her mind not to exercise any
undue influence over Ellen's choice; she
had grefit confidence, and justly so, in
the judgment and feeling of her child; and
if she thought she would 'be happy with
Mr. Leeson, she would give her full con
sent to her marline with hits.
Leeson had been an open scoffer at re
at Oxford he had narrowly escus
ped a heavy collegiate censure for his• da—
ring avowal of infidel opinions • With
wonderful tact, however, he now accom
modated himself to .feelings of those
,whom it wawhis object to conciliate. Ile
professed a deep respect forleligion; with
-great condone, however, he acknOwledg
ed that it hail hitherto occupied Iva little
of his attention. He assumed the atti
tude of an inquirer, and, if things must be
called by their right names,,he played the
part of the hypocrite most: admirably. On
Mrs. Irving he coin pl eteli imposed—on
her daughter p sand ly.
Ellen and Charles had .n.ver interchang
ed a word on the subject. if their mutual
attachment, and yet, in the,inmost reces
ses of their souls, each bed long retmi ,
ded the other as the object of a conscious
love. To Ellen's pure mind this feeling
carried with it all the sanctity ,ottt an en—
gagement: and, although •she could not
plead this in reply to her uncle's persua
sions to encourage the addresses of Mr.
Leeson, to her own heart it was in itself
,a safficient reason why she should refuse
Not that,she needed this motive to de
termine her. With that iututive percep
tion of her character which often seems an
: instinct of the female heart, she felt that
`there was an undefinable somethingabout
him which she could not ,like, and, with
all his winning manners, and even,his'ap
pearanee of regard for religion, she distrus
ted him. She feit, or fancied, her dislike
was an unreasonable, and; therefore, kri
unjust one,,and, therefore, she tried to
•overcome it, but in, vain; there arc un
taught and. unreasoning antipathies of the
heart, Avhich are under the guidance of
something ,higher than either reason or
Charles, however, could not See what
was passing in her mind. 'swam natural
that he should feel,a-jealoOsy of the ad
dresses.of one who had over hiinso much
advantage in external circumstances—in
all that men regarded as. calculated to
bribe the female heart into regard, - Born
of a family far higher than his circumstan
ces; Charles had all that . sensitiveness of
pride which such a position is calculated
to nurture, He dreaded the character of
an adventurer above all things. Had
Ellen been destitute of fortune lie would
long since have plighted to her words,
`those vows of constancy and love which
he had registered in his heart.
' such a disposition; the sensitive-
Hess OLWbibli was aggravated by a mor—
bid nervousness of temperament, the re
sult.of sleepless midnight hours, and in
tense applieation.to studdy, the presence
of a rival like Mr. Leeson * produced et-,
fects almost amounting to madness . . He
. flincie I that Ellen encouraged his addees
ses, perhaps because he thought it most
probable that any woman-Id her circum
stances would do so.. His pride .could
not bear the thought that ever he had of
fered the homage of his heart where it had
been rejected. He determioed to appear
indifferent—he rejoiced that never had a
distinct avowal of his affection passed his
lips. He resolved to make Ellen beliOe
that any past attenticins• had not beerilee
;ions upon his pert; he wished her to be
lieve that he Iliad trifled with her affec
tions, so false is .the . passion which men
call pride; he hid rather .that she should
have a just cause for. reproach, than an
unjust cause of triumph.
"ONE COUNTRY, ONE CONSTITUTION, ONE DESTINY.'
A. W. BENEDICT PITBLASVIIIR AND PROPRIETOR.
lIUNTINGDON, PE . NI‘iSi(LVANIA, ViEDNESDA+, OCTOBER 24, 1838.
And he almost
. succeeded in convey'
ing to her the . impressioithe,desired, and
he made her miserable; his visits gradual
ly became fewer and fewer et the cottage'',
until even auot remarked to him that ,
, he was treglktful of his friends. ; .Oren'
PatiOn, and the necessity of intense study
flu nished,hini with an excuse.
In thetheantone her uncle, and even
her mother, urged •ti pon her the propriety
of receiving the attentions of M r. Leeson,
whicll,were so marked as no longer to , be
capable of being M . isunderscoißl. Mrs.
Irving had been imp . osed, on by the artful
ness of his hypocrisy; slip believed that
he was such a than as her fath:er 'would
have chosen for Ellen; and, while she was
not . altogeber dazzled by the worldly tul—
vantages of the match, so as to overlook
high consideratioons, she certainly did
feel proud of seeing her daughter occupy
that exalted station which she knew she
was qualified to adorn.
Poor Ellen,Was greatly perplexed; she
feared that Charles, if he had ever loved,
her, no longer regarded her with fee'ings
of atrertion. She could find no rational
grounds fot her dislike, or rather distrust
Of Mr. Leeson: but she felt that she could
not love him. Ilad ste been a girl of les s
high principles, she would not lon g hav e
hesitated; but she shrunk from solerhnl y
*kw , -
r ofat the alter of her God, the ten
de fe elings which her heart told her
rile could not fulfil ,
She told het feelings to her mother; Mrs
Irving was not altogether capable of un
derstanding their depth. .111 y child' she
said, 'ifyour he..rt tells yon that it wit
not go with the vows you make, let noth
iiig ever teroptyou to make them; but El
len my dear, do not tie led away by the
notions of a romantic attachment which
young people so ofton believe Should be
the foundatien of marriage.,' -EStiieiii, is'
the real source of the only loyd -that will I
last; it is almost in itself the love that a,
wife owes to her husba.nd. Do nor, Ellen
dear refuse a man . whom you esteem, be
cause you thi nOt-feef that wild girlish sea
timent which perhapi your education has
net fitted you to form; but consult your,
own heart, and pray to God to guide you
to what is right.' -
' The mother affectionately kissed her
child; Ellen made no reply. She might
have answered her mother's argument by
analyzing her feelings towards Mr.Leeson
and questioning whether the distrust she
felt for him was consistent with esteem.
Bat her own heart suggested a more suf
ficient reply; she hail but to compare her
sentiments towards hint .with those with
which she still regarded her cousin, to
know that she did not love hitt;
In sadness and sorrow she went out
alone to afavourite seat which overhung
the sea. I have been charged in these
tales, with forgetting that any . persons

'the loealitiet Idscribed, aid that, presu

unintelligable to distant readers.: 'I ought
perhaps to plead guilty to the fault, but it

For the behefit, theft of the unfortunate
readers who stray be so ignorant as to re
quire such information, I: may 'state that
Clontart is a little village on the sea-shore
lat the-distance of about two miles from
Dublin. The magnificent.bay spreads its
broad waters before it, far across them, on'
the opposite side l trose the romantic hills
1 of Killiney, and farther' still behind them
' the Witkloyr mountairre'repbse tepolf the
sky, the city itself lies to the westward,
like a German metaphysician, almost al
ways obscured in the dun atmosphere of
its own smoke; a little the north-ens: rises
the Hill of Howth, and far away to the
eastward you can discern nythingbut the
blue and apparently boundless bffloWs of
the Irish Channel; except indeed at even-
tide, when, like a solitary star on that
wild wrist of waters, you can see glim
mering afar off the lanthorn of the tight
ship., a vessel which is moored on a sand
bank many miles out at sea; bearing even
on the bosom of the perilous elementitself
or to sneak more correctly, of danger to
the mariner, presenting this really romans
tic oblpci; and performing these nnpprtant
services under the unromantic and unpre
tending designation of 'the Kish tight.' .
The residence to which Mrs. Irving
had retired, was situated on the sea-shore,
some little way farther down than the
1 4100 of Clontarf.- The grounds, confi.
. ... _ ....
ned as they were, reached down to the
beach. .•Stist on the smile rocks which
bteasted ltie billows of the deep. a rustic
had been constructed, so at to com
mand a view of all the scenery of the bay.
It was a favourite retreat of Ellen's; and,
in ker present frame of mind, there was
something attractive in its sequestered sit
It was almost the dusk of an autumn
evening; the clouds hung heavy in the ski'
land cast their dark shadows over the sea'
along which.the waves were running in
troubled anti irregular seccession. The
title was: near, its hight, and the spray was'
dashed high upon' the rocks. One or to o
lexies from the trees. which grew Awn. to
the water's edge, were now and then whir
led round and round in the eddies of the
rade ;blast. Ellen wrapped her cloak
closed ronnd her, as she walked rapidly
along the gravel walk. There was a mel
tencholy in the aspect of nature, suited to
the state oilier mind. She sat down on
the seat- and leaning her head on her hand
she looked Ovel , the sea, where the wind
was sweeping along - the waves. .
She hail sat for some time; the shadow
of clouds were getting darkel on the
waters, and the Kish light, shining dis
tinctly on the black horizon around. Ellen
was just thinking of returning home, when
ier attention was attracted by a female
figure that had been apparently making its
way along the rocks upon the sea shore,
and was moving up to the. cultivated
grounds about the cottage. The female

sound while she reeked herself backwards

sort of time to her moans. ,•
She continued this motion foe sonic
time; at last she started to her feet. She
grasped her head wildly with her hands,
and then caught Ellen's with a violence
1 1 that made her shrink. A sudden fire
seemed to light up the maniac's eye.
"I...isten to roe, Miss Mew," she cried,

woman does not like to tell her shame;
