As Zedekialt turned and looked aleng the
lane leading from the house of his father to
the field in which he was at work, he• noticed
the approach of two persona, the one, a splen
didly attired and very. beautiful young, lady,
whom le judged might be aboui the same age
as his sister Susan, whilst the other was a tall,
thin•looking young:mAn, dressed in the height
of fashion, who sported, besides a tremendous
black beard, an extensive mustache, with goatee
and imperial ki•inatch.
We may as well,,state„here as anywhere, that
Miss Julia Burnett was the, daughter of - a 're
tired merchant, who resided some few years ago
in a subirlan'town within about five minutes'
ride of the city of Boston. Although - this
gentleman was an individual of the strictest
integrity, and had made the large fortune he
possessed at the time our story commences by
means of lucky speculations in the pleheian
articles of wax and candles, he had become,
long before the time his daughter visited her
poor relations in the country, proud, vain and
aristocratic to an,"lfiliinited and very absurd
extent.
Fashion was, in fa.et, the idol at whose un•
hallowed shrine'Mr. Burnett, his wife and only
daughter most =devotedly worshipped; rand as
it was very fashionable; at the time here speci
fied, for families of his peculiarly expluskve
class to =ape foreign servants, and., bow down.
with studied' humility to titled adventurers . (or
those who assumed to be such) from -foreign
lands, the family in question were overjoyed at
the introduction into their midst, on the occa
sion of an evening party, of Count Gasparivo,
said to be 'an Italian of noble birth, whose
family lineake dated beck to the first days of
the Roman Empire.
, .
"I hope, my dear, said Mrs. Burnett to, her
husband, as soon as the party in question was
over, "you iii4itbd Count Gasparivo‘ to" - Call

Then we envied' by the richest and
most exclusive families' in :Boston, and become
at once 'the very head of its.gay and brilliant
aristocracy."
"Which it has fora long time been my high-,
est ambitiOn to attain," respOnded Mr. Burnett.
"As to Julia's working her card right, why,
you must sae, my dear, that•. she does so, and
then all will be well."
"Let me alone for that," replied the lady ;
and the conversation dropped.
Next day the count punctually appeared
at the dinner• hour, and Julia, acting strictly
upon her mother's instructions, played off the
artillery of her charms upon the distinguished
stranger with certain and most marked effect.
Se the count immediately became a constant
visitor at Mr. Burnett's, and in less than six
months' time became the accepted and betroth
ed lover of hid daughter.
But Julia did not enter fully into this grand
matrimonial speculation without feeling eonsid
.
erame regret for a poor young student of me
dicine, with whom she had become acquainted
whilst at school in Boston, about a year previ
ous to her acquaintance with Count Gasparivo.
Edward Harley (the student in question) loved
Julia, and in her secret heart she loved him ;
but well knowing that his unfortunate poverty
would prove an insuperable tar to their union,
she at once determined to banish, if possible,
his image from her mind, and marry a man
who, so far as wealth was concerned, should be
her equal if not superior.
Supposing she had found such a man in the
distinguished foreigner, who had very benevo
lently offered his heart and hand, Julia thought.

the marriage was appointed to come off at the
close of the young lady's present visit to her
poor relations in the country.
_
As Julia and her foreign companion approach
ed within speaking distance of her country
tbe'foriner; adaresSing Susan, 'said
. , • !
"Is that good-looking young man standing
beside you with a rake in his.hand cousin Zede
kiah ?"
"That's him sartin," replied. Susan. "But
you hadn't ought tew call him good lo4ite."
"Why not?" inquired Julia..
.ti,Because he's as-preond as Satan
,pepw, and
.; •
that'll make him considerble preouder."
, "Dew yew stop yewer tarnal gab, Sewze
Blodgett," interposed Zed, "and go home and
help ma'am get supper."
Teti, yew mean," suggested Susan.
"Tea be darned! No, I don't mean tea,
nuther; I mean supper, sick as bread and milk,
pork and greens, and Injin johnny-cake."
"Why, Zedekiah, heovi yew dew run on be
fore eour rich cuzzun."
"Allow me," interposed Julia, "to introduce
to both of you at once, Count G a sparivo, a,dis
tinguisbed Italian nobleman, . who, I have no
doubt will be happy to wake your acquaint
.
once."
"Heow dew yew dew, Mister Ceouut Been
yergaspo ?" said ,Zedeiziah, as he stepped for
ward and rather sheepishly offered his hand.
"Gasparivo, yew tarnal fool," whispered
Susan, loud enough. however, to be heard by
the whole company.
"I shall be at my last gasp before I git it
right, I railly believe," answered Zedeltiah.
"Me vent well,hut, can not speak de very
good Ingleese,"said the count, as he, touched
the tips of his kid floyed fingers to .Zed's sub
stantial hand, and then quickly withdrew it, as
if it had been stun..
"Yew can't, hey . Well, Uspose not," re
plied Zedeiciah. the potater crop in
yewer part of the world F"
"What dew yew 'spose he .knows abeout po
tatoeS," interposed Susan; "he's a nobleman."
"Well, what if he is," returned Zetfi "he
eats' and, drinks like Other hewntans, don''t he?"
"Bless me, how cloudy it has suddenly be
come," observed Julia . , with a view of turning
the conversation into a different channel. "It
looks as thou g h it was going to rain right away,
su I think we bad better all of us hasten into
the house."
"All but me," responded Zedekiah; "I can't
go, for I've got , tow stack up. this hay; and then
go arter the' ceows."
"And for the Lord's, sake dew try and polish
yeWer'self np tint& y ew
'come ye'come back where

eour rich cuzzun is," whispered Susan 1 who
therenien turned and followed Julia and the
count towards the house, whilst Zedekiah
gently stacked his hay, and then started fora
pasture at some distance from the field after
his cows.
' , Pt , i.'
As he passed on his way thither a narrow
thicket of alders that bordered on the highway
1
and'hid it, partiallyfrom his view, Zeilekiah
heard two men conversing together,, one of
whom arrested at once. .foptsteps and atten

"I don't think it's .bes to go any, nearer , the
house, Chillins because it we .do, we may be
observed by the wrong customers."
"Perhaps not," returned Chillins. "But
,
are you sure, Hobson, that yonder is the house
where the count is stopping?"
"Yes, I know it is; and his intended wife's
aunt lives in it."
"He's coming a new game, though, for a
fancy pickpocket," observed Hobson.
"One of the most accomplished covies, in
the profession, Bill is," replied Chillins.
"What time did the count agree to meet us
here?" asked Hobson.
"At six o'clock ; and it only wants ten min
utes of it now," returned his companion.
"Do you suppose he has got some money for
us?" ,
"I know he has," replied Chillina, "for he
borrowed a hundred and fifty dollars from old
Burnett the day before he name here."
"Has he begun to bleed him already'?"
"Of course he has, and will tell us•all about
it as soon as he meets us here," replied Chil
lins.
Thinking that, for the time being, at least,
he had heard enough, Zedekiah, instead of go
ing after the cows, hastened back to the house,
which he reached just after the supposed count
had, as Julia said, gone out for a walk.
"If it aint tew , much trouble," said Zed,
"I would like tew haye yew go eout for a walk
tew, Miss Jewlia, along with me."
"Doesn't it rain r" inquired Julia.
"No l clearin' all off," replied Zedekiah.
"Upon the whole, cousin Zed," returned
Julia, after considering a moment, "I 'guess I
wont go.

Zed;' whis thorenPen toolr! JUlia aside,' and re
peatea'' eas nis eea s e verywor of
the'ciiriotie'Odeigatien he had" heard behind
the alders. 'T ut further hesitation,
Julia l astily " put g oo . her `on et and 'shawl, and,
under' Zedekiali e s 'faithful championship, re
paired by a circuitous path to the same place
'of listening` the latter had previouslY occupied.
, „
The first words' shp heard were uttered by ,
Chilling, who spoke as follows:
"BY gad, Comit 811 Swazey, I hope after
old B 't'
you marry urnet s daughter, you wont
cut the profeEsion altOgether. there'i a nice
little job of breaking in`roa..bank in New York
`coming off soon, in which we shall very much
need your advice and assistance."
"Only give me time 'to get old Burnett's
daughter and a little of 'his Cash," replied the
quondam Connt*, and y o u shall have both: If
I could get the cash witbon t the girl, I wouldn't
be' bothered with her; but as that little thing
can't be dene, I must Make a virtue of neces
sity and take the two."
"Tell us , how you managed to come the no
bletnan over the old man," said Hobson.
"My dress, mustache and broken English
did th'at to perfection. But I'm in a hurry to

and turned back towards the house, Whilst
