dial girl of seventeen, the only daughter
and heiress of eabrilovitcla.
Marie read French novels, wide natu
rally rendered her very sentimental and ro
mantic. I\ Under these circurusta n es love
was not long in coming. ' The obje of her
affections was a Russian cadet, with scarce
ly a penny in his pocket, who rekded in
the neighborhood, and was then at home on
a leave of absence. As a matter of course
he returned her love with equal ardor. Ma
rie's parents had strictly forbidden her
'thinking of such a union, and they, treated
the lover whenever they met him with just
as much friendliness as they wou d have
shown to an ex-collector of taxes.
The pair meanwhile carried on a corres
pondence, and met clandestinely :beneath
the shade of the pine grove, or behind the
old chapel. As will readily be supposed,
they here vowed eternal fidelity to each
other, complained of the severity of fate,
and devised beautiful plans for the future.
After some time they naturally came to
think that should their parents Persist in
opposing the union it might in th end be
consummated secretly and witho t their
consent. The young gentleman vas the
first to 1 -propose this, and the young lady
soon saw the expediency of it.
The an roach of winter put tir end to
these stOlpi interviews, but their letters in
creased in frequency and warmth. Iln each
of them Viadimer Nickoloviteh conjured
his love to leave the paternal roof and con
sent to a clandestine marriage.
"We will disappear for a short while,"
he wrote, "come back and cast urselves
at the feet of our parents, who, touched by
such constancy, will exclaim, ' Come to our
arms, dear children.' "
Mario was long irresolute. At ength it
was agreed, however, that she uhould not
appear at supper on a day appointed, but
should retire to her room on the pt l etext of
indisposition. Her maid had been 'let into
the secret. Both were to escape by a buck
door, in front of which they would find a
sleigh ready to convey them, a distance of
five werats, to the chapel of JadritiO, where
Viadimer and the priest would await them.
Having made her preparations, and writ
ten a long apologetical letter to her parents,
Marie retired betimes to her' roo - She
bad been complaining all day of a headache,
andi.his was certainly no mere pre ext; for
the nervous excitement had in tru h indis
posed her. Her father and motile nursed/
her tenderly, asking her again an, again;
"How do you feel now, Marie? Are yen
no hettert" This loving solicitude cut the
girl 'to the heart, and with the approach of
evening her excitement increased.
At supper site ate nothing, but rose be
times and bade her parents good i night.—
The latter kissed and blessed her, as was
their wont, while Marie could scarcely re
press her sobs. Having reached ber room
she threw herself into a chair and Wept,
' aloud. Her maid finally succmit4 in com
forting her and cheering her up. ,
Later in the evening a snow storm arose.
The wind lioNtled about the house causing
the 'Windows to rattle: The inmates had
hardly gone ,to rest when the yoUng' gill,
wrapping herself in her clothes and furs,
and followed by the servant with a port
manteau, left the paternal roof. A. sleigh
drawn by three horde's received them, and
away they went at a furious speed. 1
'Vladinier had also been active throughout
the day. In the morning he had dulled on
the minister at Jadrino to arrange for the
ceremony, and then he,went to lei* up the
required witnesses. The brit actplaintance
to whom he applied was an officer on half
pay, who expressed himself ready to serve
him. Such an adventure, lie said carried
him back to the days of his own iyoutii:-- :
He determined Viadimer should remain
with him, taking upon himself tol procure
the other two witnesses. There acqordingly
appeared at dinner Surveyor Schmidt, with
his spurs and moustache, and IsPravalk's
son, it lad of seventeen, who had just en
listed with the Uhians. Both promised
Viadimer their assistance, and, leiter a cor
dial embrace, the happy lover parted from:
his three friends to complete his prepare.-
Lions at home. "
Having dispatched a trusty eervtmt, with
a sleigh for Marie, he got into ,a oue-horse
sleigh hithself, and took the road leading
to Jadrino. Scarcely had he see t olf when
the storm burst forth with violence, and
soon every trace of the way was gone. The
entire horizon was covered with thick yel
low clouds, discharging not flakes but mass
es of snow. At last` it became impossible
to distinguish between earth and I sky. In
vain Viadimer beat about for the !way; his
horse wenton at random, now leaping over
banks of snow, now sinking into: ditches,
and threatening every moment to ,overturn
the sleigh. The insupportable thought of
having lost the road had become a certain

Tetrowna .1n her morning gown. After
they had breakfasted Gabriel sent up one of
the girls to inquire how Mario was. She
returned with the message that her young
Miatress' had had a sleepless night, but that
she was feeling better now, and would come

;the room, looking exceedingly , pale, yet
'without the least perceptible agitation.

inquired her fallher.

of `most violent flver. For fourteen days

her illness. Having advised with a few,
friends, her parents resolved to let Marie

Cannot escape one's fate, and besides, that

The patient recovered. During her ill
ness Vladimer bad not once
-shown his face'
in the house, and it-was resolved to apprise
hint of his unexpected good fortune. But,
to the astonishment of the proud proprie
tor of Nemaradorff, the cadet declared that
be should never again cross the threshold of
his house, begging them at the same time to
forget tiVerly so , wretched a creature as he,
to whom death alone would give repose.
-- A few days afterward they learned that
'Vladinier had again returned to the army.
It - was in the year 1812. No one uttered
his name in Marie's presence, and she her
self never made mention of him in any
Way. Two or ;three months had elapsed,
`s4ten one day she found his name among
ti -a lint of .OM-cent -who had distinguished
themselves at the battle of Borodino, and
who had been mortally wounded. She
fainted away and had a relapse, from which
she recovered but slowly.
Not long after her father died, bequeath
ing his whole property to her. But riches
were not able to comfort her; she wept with
her mother, and promised never to leave
her. They sold' Nemaradorif and removed
to another estate. Suitors thronged around
the wealthy and-amiable heiress, but none,
of them received the slightest encourage
ment from her. Often did her mother pre,Ss
her to choose a husband; she would rnetkly :
shake her head in silence. /
Vladimer was no more, he died at/Mos
cow on the evening before the entrance. of
the French. Marie seemed to hold his mem
ory sacred; she carefully preserved the
books they had - read together, his
the letters he had written to her—in brief,
everything that could serve to keep alive
the remembrance of the ill-fated youth. ~
About this time the war,/ fraught with
such glory to the Allies, 9f whom Russia
was one, came to an end. , The victorious
regiments returned home; and crowds of
people flocked together/to greet them.—
Officers who had gone forth as beardless

months,,took up his residence on his estate,
which joined Marie's present abode. The
young girl received him with far more fa
vor than she had hitherto shown to any of
her visitor* They resembled each other in
many respects; both were handsome, intel
ligent, taciturn, and reserved.
There was something mysterious about
Wurmin which reused the curiosity and in
terest of Marie: His affection for her was
soon unmistakable; he showed her every
conceivable attention; but why did he never
speak of love, though his - dark, ardent eyes
would rest upon her s.half dreamingly, half
with an expression which seemed to an
nounce an early and positive declaration?—
Already the neighbors spoke of their mar

of her daughter's finding a ~o rtiy husband

/1850, and is therefore now drawing toward
the completion of his seventeenth year,—
While still in arms lie was placed on the
muster roll of the French Imperial Guards
as a private in the regiment; for, as it was
intended that he should receive' a military
education, and afterward assume a military
command, it was designed, as a compliment
to the, army, that he should, at least nomi
nally, go through all the gradations of the
service. When old enough to begin to learn
the military exercises he was put through
them with other youths of his own age, and
in this way was taught the bayonet and other
drills before he was eight years old. By
this time, too, he had been made a non-com
missioned officer of his regiment, and, step
by step, passed through the various grades
toward the rank -,of colonel. But, ,svhile
special attention was given to his military
training, his education as a citizen was not
neglected. Beside the ordinary rudiments
of instruction he received lessons in two or
three handicrafts, the last of which was the
setting up of types in the imperial printing
office of Paris. The object of - this may"
have been simply to extend his sphere of
knowledge, and enlarge his views in after
life; but the ability to earn a living like an
ordinary individual has before now proved
a valuable accomplishment for even the heir
to a throne. It , will be remen,ibered that

the only remarkable event of his life. The

Am -ical "Society."
That there is plenty of society in America
of course none would be foolish eneogli to
deny. The girl who grows up " goes out,"
as a matter .of course; the man who reaches
the age of aixteen is very likely to go to
dancing classes, and two years litter to balls.
But there is no social code, except such as
is imported from Europe, and when you
say " imported from Europe," you don't
mean from any one country, but some cus
toms from England, some from France,
some from Germany, some new, some old,
some bad, some good, some destined to.sur

a figure in the society of New York or Bos

Tobacco vs. Int,elleot.'
At the nearest recollection the internal
revenue report of last year showed that the
United States consumed about ten million
cigars during that time. Many old smokers
prefer the pipe to the cigar, .and probably
as much tobacco is consumed in that s
as in. cigars. However Out of the way, i.u-
IneriCally, the previous 'statement may 102,
it is .rue that there are in this - country 32,-
284 manufacturers of cigars, and_they 6m.
ploy 71,491 men. Wherever tobacco est. be
raised the farmer finds it one of the int,st,
profitable crops, and consequently is very
apt to cultivate it. Its use increases froni
year to year in a greater ratio than the pop
ulation. People differ so widely as to its
effects that it is only just, whenever a can
did statement is made of any test, to give it
publicity. Recently, at the Polytechnic
school in Paris, one of the professors -in
quired into the habits of the one hundred
and sixty students there, and then made a
comparison between their devotions to stmiy
and to smoke. He found that one hundre..t
And two were smokers, and lifty-eight never
used, or said they never used, the noxious
weed. He then found that in each grade of
the school the students who 01 not smoke
outranked those who did stake, and that:
the scholarship of the smokers steadily de
teriorated as the smoking continued. On
account of several trustworthy reports of
such a nature the Minister of public In
struction in France issued a circular to the
directors of colleges and schools forbithilng•
tobacco to students as injurious to ph} - ,sicei
and intellectual development. But aWI i ter

is carried to a marvelous extreme by back
woodsmen, trappers, and men who guess
the weight of animals. Perhaps the most
remarkable instances are the markers who
leap from log to log at the mouth of a boom,

Having attained our object in point of
quality, in cows, the next consideration is
to retain and improve upon it by care and
good management. While good care via

these qualities. In. the first place, nonane
