'I like her!" exclaimed a young man, with no
inconsiderable degree of ardour.

she has been accustomed 1' It costs something to

our fitthers ended,' mid his companion.
True Ned; if she would only begin with mu—
why she's poor herself.'
Yes, and proud too ; the fact is, women require
so much waiting upon, or fashion reguires it—so
many servants, just such a style of living—that for
my part, I have given up all thoughts of marrying.'
Ned said this with some bitterness, as if he, had
good reason for feeling it.

economical, because she has always been obliged to

thought struck him.
'Perhaps so--but shall you ho independent
enough to begin in a small way'! in fact, to live
within your means—if you intend to get along in
the world, you must live within your means.
Well it's a pity; said Charley, somewhat dam
ped by the cool inquiries of his friend, 'think what
quiet, charming quarters I might have; I ant hear
tily sick of the ofT-hand, bachelor life we now lead.

Or . be over head and ears in debt,' suggested
That I will never do!' exclaimed Scott right
earmstly and it bkto be regretted that every young
man does not nvtlce a similardeterminution with in
dependence and judgment enough to keep it.
Here the two canto to a turn in the street where
they took different directions. Charley bent his
step towards his store and in no merry rived, Ned

the door; the business of the day was over, the
clerks were preparing to leave, al the early shades
of an autumn twilight were fast gathering round.
Bestirred open some dying corkers, then throwing
himself listle,sly into a chair, anti placing his feet
upon the iron fender he soon became wonderfully
absorbed in his own reductions. This was a young
man of domestic taste and excellent habits. Ho
remembered with joy his father's fireside, and all
the sweet sympathies of that deur home elute, of
which he was mice a loved arid loving member.—
They had passed away, and he had long lived upon
the cold bounties of a boarding house. Ifi.s heart
yearned with unspeakable desire for a place to call
his own, with the delighted peculiarities, my wife,'
my fireside, my table.' It does not ap
pear what conclusions Charley came to, or
whether ho came to any at all. Evening
found him at his toilet preparing for a party. Long
before the appointed hour he was ready, and wait
ing the tardy movements of Iris watch. Though
no one now knew better how to fill up niuches of
time with something useful and pleasant, there was
now a restlessness of spirit which refused to be
quieted. lie sallied forth into the street, and after
various turns, at length bent his stepo towards the
Clarks; music and mirth met his ear, and
bright lights streamed from the windows. Making
his greetings to the ladies of the house, and uttering
a fete agreeable truisms to those 'about him, ho
sought among the bevies of fair women ono pretty
maiden named Fanny Day. She bade him a ',lush
ing welcome, which seemed to say 'come hither.'
' He stood aloof in no seeming hurry to seek a place
by her side, already half occupied by another, while
Ins eye discussed with keenest scrutiny, the font
ensemble of Fanny's dress. Conscious of his ear
nest, admiring (!) gaze, Fanny scented to hear the
quick beatings of her own heart, and hope, fear, and
love, came and went, and went mid came, like
smiles and shadow's across her spirit. A new
and splendid silk,' thus ran Charley's thoughts,
that looks extravagant; the bracelet I never saw
before ; I wonder if she is fond of such gewgaws.
What is thatdangling from her hair? a gold pin or
tassel—l should like to know how much it cost;'
not very love-like comments it must be confessed,
but he was looking beyond the betrothed and the
bride, to what signified a great deal more, he was
looking for a help-mate ono for dark days as well
as bright. 'I am afraid sho won't do for me—and
this is her uncle'. house, she will want to live just
so,— something like a sigh escaped him as lie walk

ed his departure, wondering when he would return;
she was sure he would rejoin her by and by; he
always had of late. But no return—had he only

turned and newly fitted, it had been ; by her needle
and her skill, so as to make it quite as good as new
—how prudent and thrifty that Was! had he only
known the bracelet was a gift two years before; and
the gold pin, why it was a decoration borrowed to
please his eye—so Fanny was tint so culpable after
all. I say had Charley known all this, Ire had not
staid away so strangely and coldly all that live long

fully did a tear gather in her eye, as she beheld him
depart, without a parting glance or a farewell word.

Charles Scott was not quite satisfied. Ho real
ly loved Fanny, but he was afraid to marry her. It
was not a sickly sentimental love. He counted the
cost and calculated the chances, albeit love it is said,
understands no arithmetic, and knows no reason.
He had fixed principles of action, and settled rules
to govern his choice of a wife; ho did not mean
that love should laugh him out of them, or blind
him to their value. No, he determined to abide by
Sonic time passed away, and never was man
more devoted to business. Perhaps he dreamed of
Fanny, but he did not visit her.
Behold a gathering of friends, a pleasant little
company. Charles is there, and Fanny too. 110
thought she never looked so charmingly, with her
simple braid of hair, and her modest lawn coloured
dress; there was something sad and reproaching in
her eye, it smote him to the heart--'dear Fanny,
how can she interpret toy coldness!' was the ques
tioning 6f returning, fondness. 4 I mean to see her,
and be frank with her and explain to her all my .
views—if she is a girl of sense, she cannot but ap
prove, if she is not,' such a contingency remained
unprovided fur; an excellent resolution, Charley,
abide by it. It so happened, or was so contrived,
(love's chances 'are not always scrutable) the two
found themselves threading their way along through
the hushed streets at an early hour. Now, for
Charley's resolution—yes, he kept it.
But Fanny,' he continued with remarkable self
possession, oiler a few preliminaries not to be re
peated. I want you to understand exactly my sit
uation, how I intend for the present to live, and
what plans we must pursue. I must live within
my means, and just setting out in life, my means
are necessarily small I ant liable to the business

tion with me. You must take allthese into serious
consideration before you answer me. Perhaps yeu
may feel that you cannot. conform to such humble
circumstances. I will not disappoint or deceive
you. At the moment Fanny thought she could de
cide instantly—for she saw only a rose-tinted future.
Now Fanny listened.
Do not decide now, Fanny, think this all over;

confessed, had implied to her mind, what it does to
the minds of too many young ladies; gay visions
of wealth awl independence, tieing. everything one
wishes—n lover in the husband, amusement in the
parlor. Fanny belonged to that class of females,
who, without fortune or expectations, had been
brought up amid all the appliances of wealth. She
was an orphan and lived in the family of an uncle.
With a few parlor duties, and none in the kitchen,
she lived an easy dependent life,.floating on society
with untried energies and undeveloped powers.—
Rich men did not seek het : because. rich men generally
seek to increase their wealth wills matrimonial cares;
a poor matt might fear, and justly fear, as did
Charles Scott, because females thus educated often
shrink front the exertions and the cares of house
hold employment ; they are slow in finding out that
hands are made to work with, and they ate apt to
regard labor as a menial service. If young men •
will do as Charles Scott did, frankly unfold to we
men their real situation and their true interest, ex
plain to them the use and the dignity of labor,
encourage and stimulate exertion, there would be
fewer ill-regulated households and thriftless wives.
Fanny digested the whole matter, weighed it all and
behold her,not many months afterwards, in her new
home. It was indeed a snug home, full of comforts
and blessings ; there was a pleasant little sitting
room, with sun beams and diniles, with Kiddermins
ter and flog bottoms, unadorned by ottomans or
divans, astral lamps or marble tabled. Her kitchen
too, was near by, where Fanny wan not ashamed to
pass herForning hours.

gay acquaintance, 'you will perhaps find. me Ma

THE BARON AND HIS NEPHEW.
iir ISS faiLl).
A noted German baron was this Adolphe Van
Helmeted. 4 kind hearted, merry little loan, who
laughed from morning till night, and whose mirth
was so contagious that all within the sound and in
flounce of it laughed Mo. The baron had a fair
castle, with deep, thick: woods surrounding it, and
he weld stand en a high hill near, and all the land
which his eye took in, was the Baron Von Helm
stes own. Scores of horses stamped in his sta
bles, hundreds of hounds roamed through- his
grounds, and the baron's purer was as deep, full
and us unfathomable, as Rosalind declareth the
Boy of Biscay. There was no wife to sound her
shrill pipes in his car, there were no children to
tear and rend Ida heart. No! a happy, care-free
bachelor was he, and such would he have lived,
and so diet, smoking his pipe on the cushion of
contentment, and at last lying quietly and peace
fully in his grave as all his fathers did, had it not
been for a certain Ernest Von Helmeted, who
had the honor to be—the baron's nephew.
Now this nephew Ernest was certainly not the
kind of character that appears on the stage its no
vels, romances and such-like in a martial swagger
ing attitude,- breaking &titer's, guardian's and lo
ving kinsmen's hearts. Dame Margery, the cros
nest of women, *ha held the house-keeping keys
at the castle, lifted up her handl and eyes at the
mention of his natne, and declared— , A kind,
sweet spoken, civil gentleman is master Earnest
Von Hohnsted.' Many a' gentle, pretty maiden
had rested her bright eyes appriningly upon him,
sighed end murmured—' A right handsome ,
noble, gallant-looking youth is Master Ernest Von
Helmeted.' The ruling authorities at divers uni
versities, all had written— , Brave, strong -hearted.
wise and learned, en honer to hia blood and race,
is Abater Ernest Von Hehnsted.' And the baron,
as he was suffered to win game after gnaw of
backgatmnon in the lone winter evening., mid the
baron as ho listened to many conceits and quaint
old stories, and the baron as he held the strong aria
which night after night made ascent up the old
staircase envy, acknowledged with tears in his eyes
and a swelling at his heart—' A kind, gentle loving
nephew is this nephew of mine, this Ernest Von
And yet this same Ernest was the thorn in
the merry old genleman's flesh, which checked the
sound of his laughter for full half an hour at a
time, and composed his countenance to a most sad
and melancholy aspect, while the cloud of blue
smoke floated in fantastic, dreamy wreaths
around his head. All this--because the worship
ful Master Ernest. totally refused to enter the holy
state of matrimony; would as soon have beheld
his satanic majesty as anything in the shape of a
petticoat and crossed himself' involuntarily, when
ever he chanced to encounter a•pair of dark mel

quity in Master Ernest being: First, he was dis
tressingly modest and diffident; Second and lastly,
ho was somewhat indolent, somewhat melancholy,
and loved nothing better than roasting through the
woods, peopling every tree with hamadryads and
fawns, and dreaming of fairies and myaterions in
fluences, with perhaps pale, slender, willowy Iv
roines, half-moon, half-vapor, with not n sensation
in common with the vanity-given maidens, of this
The Baron Von Hehnsted talked, and the Ba
ron Von Helmsted swore, and exerted all the elo
quence nature had given him-which,sooth to say,was
not a superabundant quantity—and all to no pur
pose. His nephew listened—at first with amaze
ment, then with weariness, and at length, after two
or three years had passed and the lectures were
not discontinued, grew horribly indignant thereat,
and would rusts forth into the woods to escape
where, with his nymps and dryads, he soon got
calm again. At length the baron hit upon a des
perate expedient. Ito applied to a female relative,
and she, with some three or four damsels, (to give
Master Ernest a fur &Id for choice) came and
took up her abode at the castle.
Heavens! What a seige the poor baron had.
Dame Margery went almost frantic with rage at
this unheard of innovation on her territories, and 1
her delectable voice sounded in his car from morn
till night. The ladies, too, with.their maid s
ri;entira, au'd thoLe..fejwyl:.;ot :
thetr airs and their miandries, turned the old house
topsy-turvy, and confusion reigned from one end to
the other thereof. As for master Ernest, who was the
prime cause and mover, although the most unwit
ting and innocent one, of all this hubbub--Master
Ernest entirely evacuated the premises and fled to
the woods, where he took up his abode with Ids
fawns and nymphs and satyrs.
At length the female relative and her retinue, per.
ceiving how useless it was, grow weary of the old
castle, and the poor baron could not repress a sigh
of relief as the gates closed upon them one fair
summer's morning. Dig nephew returned, the
cross housekeeper was amiable, and the Baron Von
Helmeted, for a time appeared to surrender himself
to an inevitable destiny. But again Ito evinced
signs of restlessness; again Ito appeared on the one
of a great undertaking—and so he was; for the
Baron Von Helmsted, who had resided peacefully
and contentedly on his territories for the last thirty
years, as a wise man should, was absolutely going
a journey. Again did Dame Margery lift up her
itands and eyes, and this time she exclaimed, the
Baron Von Helmeted is certainly bewitched.'
As for the Baron, ho went away. A month
passed ; then two or three, when some workmen
cone, despatched by his orders, to model and renew
one enthe side of his castle. And then, when
numberless tasteful fairy-like apartments had been
prepared, the most exquisite and recherche furni.
turc in the world arrived to occupy and adorn
A letter reached the castle in which Ernest, to
his intense astonishment and infinite merriment,
learned that his uncle, failing in his attempt to in
duce hint to enter the holy state, had been driven
to it himself, and would ho there with his bride on
the morrow. Ernest was amused at the evident
embarrassment which peeped out from every part
of the worldly old baron's letter, the idea of the
whole matter was infinitely ludicrous to hint, and
he laughed, where most young gentlemen would
have sworn, for Ernest Von Helmeted was to have
been his uncle's heir.
The morrow came, the noon, the night—bright

and amid ruin, storm and tempest a carriage

stood enveloped in her cloak and muffling.; he saw
that alto was quite small, and a little withered, mea

coverings and disguise fell, and, stepping from among
them, shaking some lovely fair golden curls front

creature of mortal mould. Never was three such
