pretty young woman, who Mood by Lim.
So you neon to think,' replied she, erniiing,
but I am not convinced, as far as lem concerned
in the business, that the coat had any thing to do
then, I 'diall just tell my story and leave
you to decide,' said he, turning to me. You
must ktow that there wee a time when I was rather
herd up, and how to go ahead was the beleiness.—
I had tried a mercantile speculation and mink en
immensity of dollars. I had turned lawyer, but
that would not answer in any way. I took to farm
ing, no luck there., Went ottt supercargo; ship
went on a reef end lost cargo. Returned le New
York, speculated a long while upon nothing ;
lose mach, that's certain, but did'nt realise; at last
I gave up busineen, and resolved:to amuse myself a
little, co I wont sonth and joined Bolivar ; I fought
with him for three years, and a good officer he wee,
but he had one fault as a General, which was, that
hie army never got paid. I wanted my throe years,
and finding that there wee neither pay nor plunder
I got tired of it and made my way home to the
State., and at lard arrived at the Capitol with only
one extra shirt and not a cent in my pocket. I hap
pened to meet with a tailor, whose customer I had
once been, when I had money and paid my bills;
and he observed that my coat was rather shabby,
and that I could not appear well in it. I knew that
very well, and that all he wanted was en order for
another but, as I had ne chance of paying him, I
thought it advisable not to take the hint. , 1 thin4,l
said I, that with a new velvet collar end brass
buttons, it :night do very well for an evening

It's hardly worth it; continued he, touching the
Yea it is,' replied I ; there'll be a regular jam,
and a new coat would he spoiled. I'll send it to
you to-night, and you must let me hare it in the
morning, to good bye.'
Well, the coat came home the next day, not
early in the morning, as I expected, but past merid
ian, and I walked up and down my bod room in my
trousers, thinking what I should do. At three o'-
clock I called upon Mrs T., end left my card; went
back again and waited two hours for the invitation
—no invitation. Called again at five, and left an
other card, tolling the nigger that I had not revived
an invitation, and that there must be some mistake;
• an invitation came about an hoar after
ray return, just as I was putting my hat on to call
again and leale another card, in a very fierce man
ner, I reckon. , Well, I went early to the ball, and
my coat looked remarkably gay. You could see
ihrit the velvet collar was new, and the buttons
glittered famously,, but you could not see that the
cloth was not a little the worse for wear in short,
my brown scat looked Teri smart, and I was a con
siderable smart fellow myself just at .bat time,
Well, I stood near the door, looking at the com
pany coming in, hoping to know some body; but
presume that I had grown out of all recollection,
for nobody know me; but as the company were
announced I heard their names, ■nd if they did
not know who I wae, at all events I found out who
This won't do,' says I, as the rooms became quite
full. I may stick against this wall till daylight,
but I shall never go ahead ; so at last perceiving a
young lady speaking to the daughter of the Secre
tary of the Navy, after they parted, I went up and
bowed to her. Having hoard her name, I preten
ded to be an old acquaintance, and secured her of
having forgotten me. As I was very positive and
very bold, she presumed it was the ease, and when
I gave her my name, which I refused to do until
We had beeh talking for some minutes, an it hap
pened to be a eery good one, she considered it was
all right, and in another quarter of an hour we be
came very intimate. I then asked her if she knew
Miss E-, the daughter of the Secretary of the
Navy. She replied that she did, and I requested
her to introduce me, and offering her my arm, we
walked up to the young lady together, and I wee
introduced. Now, thought I, lam going ahead a
little. After the introduction I commenced a con
versation with Miss exerted myself to the
utmost, and on the strength of my introduction
and agreeableness, I was soon intimate with her,
and she accepted my arm. As I paced her up and
down the room, I asked her if site knew the daugh
ter of General 8-, who was near us. She re
plied in the Milrmative,and I requested an introduc
tion, which was immediately complied with, and I
offered Mies 8-- my other arm, sued paraded
them both up and down the room, making them
laugh not a little.
Now I'm going ahead, thinks I, end my old
brown coat looks remarkably wall.
'Here is the President coming op,' said Mine
E-. De you know him
''l did once, a little, but he must have forgotten
me since I have been in South America so long.'
' The Preeiden, came right up to us and address

"Aid tho Higbee! Officer of the State before
me,' replied I, with a low bow. I ought, indeed,
to feel proud. Is makes amends for all the priva
tion that I underwent in my last campaign with
General Bolivar, for the General and his aid-de
campe fared no better than the moaned ireldier.'
• That lad was a hit. I did not say that I was
aid-de-camp to Bolivar, bet they thought proper to
fancy so; the President made me a bow, and as it
appeared, he wanted to have soma information
from that quarter; and he asked me many tom
tione, all of which I was able to gnawer with pre
cision. After a quarter of on hour's conversation,
during which the whole room were wondering who
it wee that wan so intimate with the President, and
many were trying to catch what tom said—the
President presuming, as Bolivar's aid-de-camp, that
I could give him information •Jpon a certain point,
end not wishing to have the &newer public, said to
the young !adios, I am going to do a very rude
thing; I wish to oak a question; which Mr. -----
would not like to reply to except in confidence t I
must take him away from you for a minute or two.
I beg your pardon. Mr, —, but I feel and shall be
truly grateful far the 'artifice you will make to
giving up for one moment much charming eociety.'
I fear the loss will only be on my pert,' said I to
the young ladies, as I dropped their arms and fol
lowed the President to a vacant spot near the er.
cheetra. The question which the President put to
ma wee one which I could net well answer, but he
helped me out of the dfficulty by answering it him
calf according to his own views, end then appeal
to me if it wee not correct. I replied,. that I
certainly was not at liberty, although a bad left the
service of General Bolivar, to repeat all that I knew;
fortunately,' continued I, bowing, where such
clear-sighteJness is apparent, there Is no seamen
for the question being anevrered. • Ton are right,
Mr. —, I wish vi! them about me had year die
cretion and high sense of honer,' replied the Pre.
ident, who had one of my new brass buttons be

your reply, that I was also right In my conjecture.
I am much obliged to you,and trust I shall see yen

an every one was looking at me se I retreated, I
had been walking arm•in-arm with the daughters
of the two firet officers of the Siete, I had been in

Now I do pertinaciously declare, that it wee all
owing to the old brown coat ; and I have kept this
