From The Rove,
A. Good Rcsolution,
Quite away from the dusty turnpike, and across
sweat sin:lli:lg clover-fields, in a small, quaint,
moss-grown edifice, dwelt Joh Wow :ell and his
'daughter May. Job had been a fisherman in his
better days, but, sad to tell, he had been drawn
away from his occupation by the seductive charms
of the village inn. There lie might lie found from
!only 'morning WI midnight, scarce turning his
steps homeward to the frugal meals piepared by his
patient child, and leaving with her the whole care
and toil of providing for their family necessities.
Happy was it for May, poor girl! that her heart
was as brave and hopeful, no it was patient and
loving. Whoever passed tier door on a bright
spring morning, might hear her voice, singing songs
as sweet and merry as though she had not a care
-or sorrow in'tise world. And that little quaint old
cotthge! wits bvoull him dreamed that it was the
'home of on inveteratelimilei,lvith its'ileatly swept
grass award, andits bed of fragrant carnations, its
honey suckles, anti., and moss-roses!

—and, oaring his great neglect, always treated her
'With kindness. In Isis vverit state of inebriation,

cessively and shamelessly silly, and disposed to,
Ott May a world of fondling, dresses; May,
in turn, was always gentle and patient with her
father, never reproached hint with his vile habits,
but often tenderly entreated him to stay and assist
ter about her garden, or to spend the lung winter
'evenings with her, instead of hurrying away to the
Admiral !'
..... • . •
`O 'beautiful spring morning, Job stuck
l'lne old hat jauntily on ono side of his head, and
ataod cretvtling'the tobacco into his pipe, ever and
boon casting a wishful look towards May, who was
busily wiping the breakfliit plates.
Chn ilb any thing for you, father," said she,
'looking up with blpleasa it ..a encouraging smile.
Al,, you'ro a good girl! I hate to -trouble you
juit nowl'in all out of change—and a curse
on theft° times, I say, when an honest man cant get
trusted fur a shilling to save him frcien want."
" Dear father, I would willingly give yOu 'What
little money I have, but if I do, we shall be forced
to go without dinner or supper, I fear."
'Are we 'really genwn sopoorha thatl .
'these are melancholy times for us poor fishers. I'll
not take your money, May ; I can win a shilling
from Ned Watkins, any day, at ninepins, and that
will be easier than to rob you."
"Oh, papa! if you will not go to the Admiral'
'to-day, blt t help 'ate to transplant those fine
strawberry vines that yield so many dollars every
Year—oh, dear papa, I cannot tell-you how hoppy
you will make me, how very gratefully T shift 'ie
'Member the kifidneas."
"Little need of any assistance," answered Job,
filth koolVntiluied hiugh, ihril sent the bright
blood flushing all over May's cheeks. Younger
and steadier hando are ht your service, and an 'Old
Man like me would be in the way."
"Oh, no! no, papa!" exclaimed May, earnest
ly, damping her work, and clasping her arm in 'his,
at the some lime lifting op her beafifing,lettiful
eyes moot iinialoringly,
• .
Job was touched. Tears were unwonted visitors
to those joyous and radiant eyes; so, at least,
thought ho, who saw few indeed 'of ilia 'Many that
'Weie shed 'for hill',
"You are a good girl, May," said he, p;itting
her head, and kissing her white forehead with pa
rental delicacy; you are a good girl, and I wish
I were a more worthy father. Hut let me go now,
dear, and I wilt soon be back again to help you."
May had been too long acenstomeel to luive her
entreaties disregarded, to shed many tears for her
present disappointment; so, having compleY.dil her
houJeliold •arrangements, she tied on her little cot
tage straw--its blue ribbons somewhat faded, it is'
true, but thereby better suiting the exquisite deli
cacy of her complexion—and proceeded to the
garden. There was a freshness and exhiliratioa in
the soft, spring air, that soon removed from her
heart and lace all traces of unluppiness; and if her
'check had previously been a shade too pale, this
defect was remedied the instant the sound of.a buoy
ant focitstep fell upon her listening car.
The person who approached was the son of May's
neaiest neighbor, widow Lovell. He was a fine
looking fellow, with a complexion. of the clearest
;tile, eyes of the darkest blue, and hair that would
rival the gloss and blackness of the "raven's wing."
He had a basket on hia arm, full of 'yaltng plants.
" You were wishing for some of these gorgeous

to procure "s , (itt some."

found 'that to combat her resolution was idle, he

:Now all this while there was a little by-scene
going on,'WhichWe must not conceal frOM Our
readers, especially as it has reference to the conclu
sion of our tale. Job Wooden, when he parted
from his daughter, struck across tho clover fields
towards the Admiral; but instead of entering, as
was his time-out-ofmrind custom, and turning aside,
and springing down the rods, set fur sometime

Job reached his house just after Harry and May
had entered it—and hearing their voices as he came

Stopped in front of a windOw that, Opened at the

only:diatinctly hear the language, but could also
sec the fac'es of the Tavirs. The mention of his
nanio kept his feet rivetted to the Spot.. Their con
'Versatip'i has already been detailed, and its effect
upon Job, in his p'resent mood may well be
sed. At first, the hot ,hlood itudied in torrents to
his 'brain and fade, and the deep disgust he felt for
his own foil . ) , was pictured in every liniament and
expression of his countenance. nut when he sow
May in tears, when he heard her sweet tremuloua
voice pronouncing the doom of Hefty's fondest
hopes, and ell for his sake, who had so cruelly
wronged and disgraced her, lie wrung his honda in
agony, and, unable to 'suppress Ida feelings, hurried
cautiously thioUgh the back entrance of the house
and shut himself up in his chamber:
A sad day it was for Mary Woodell after Harry
retired. Her garden had lost its interest. Even
the favorite Ismailia only Made tier weep when she.
looked on them. Sho prepared a dinner for her
fattier, however, and strove by an increased de +q
uoit to his wants, to forgei her sorrowful ilioughte.
But the day wore on, and Job did not appear.—
The dinner was removed Waded. Poor father
Said May, 'I told him I had scarce money to buy
us a dinner---I tear he has denied himself out Or
consideration for me.' And she tried to believe
this the . true solution to his delay, though experience
had taught that his neglect of his meals was use- I
ally occasioned by a worese than ordinary debauch.
How different would have been her feelings had
she known that her erring parent was this moment
in his own chamber, Overwhelmed with anguish
and remorse! How quickly would abe, have for

, and pour
into his ear assuranc e of her. forgiveness and love !
Alt, it was better for hiM, May, that thy tender mer
cies were awhile withheld.
I do think father will return to tea,' thought
May—and she hastened to prepare a dish for him,
which she knew be - very much liked,ttnd which she I
had made same personal sik‘fillini to - Priu'ure.—
Then Spreading the . t:ible vcry tr.atry, she sat down
at the window to await his aprroach.

Wit being to smile on theirtoik, one friend to whom
their existence seems a peculiar kiiid of blessing,

Job, meanwhi:e, hearing her light step about the
house, 'rose from the bed where he hbamrown

her dear father eat by her sober, and full of kind
words and gentle attentions
A week passed on, and Job daily assistedMiy in
arranging and planting her garden, never Once go
ing near the Admiral, nor lifting a glass of spirits
to his lips. May was in raptures. Only one thing
disturbed her felicity—harry was not to partake of
it. 'lt is foolish in hint to stay away so long,'
thought she; 'fur though we must not be lovers, we
might certainly be friends.' l'ethaps the change
would not have been so easy, May l
One morning, after breakfast, Job rose front the
table, and put on his hat, (May had just braided
hint - a 'new one) saying as he did no, !I ant going

at thy long absence. Only think, May, it is a whole

distress at this unwelcome announcement. Oh,

treaty, do not go any more to that wretched place.

Job smoothed her bright hair, and looking good

And without s topping to listen to her earnest re

back, and scribbled upon it the following remarka

Having thus made and solemnized.this good res.
