A GOOD STORY.
My father was a country lawyer of a con
siderable eminence. Ills family was good,
but not wealthy. In early life lie married
one of the co-he iresses of a city banker, and
by ante nuptial agreement her property was
strictly secured to any heirs she might have.
She died while 1 her only child, was yet an
infant, and her wealth become mine, held by
my father in trust for my use until I should
reach the age at which it would come into
I was left to the care of servants, princi
pally, for my father, though very fond of me
was always immersed i n business, and spent
hut little time in the splendid but comfort
less home over which no mistress presided.
I j'could not remain tlins. My nnnt St,
Clair returned from Europe when I was
about fourteen. She came with her family
to Yerdhill by my father's invitation, to re
main until her house in town could be put
in order for her reception. She saw and was
astonished at uiy wild appearance and hoy
endi-h manners. She quickly decided that
her sister's child, and a great heiress, must
n>' be allowed to remain thus, and it was
arranged that I should accompany her to the
city ell ter at once upon t lie course of intruc
tion sn necessary and s long neglected.
At the age of sixteen summers my aunt
had succeeded in having m 3 " finished" ac
cording to the fashionable patient. I was
beautiful, willful, utterly selfish, and a de
votee of the art ol thrting. So accomplished
I went to mj r old home, and my agel father,
who welcomed me with pride and fondness.
A gay party went with me whom I was to
make the round <>f the watering place with
after a short visit to mv father.
The Sabbath before we were to start, we
al! went to the old village church. 1 shall
never-forget that day. As we all sat silent
there was a slight rustling of leaves, and the
imperceptible stir that announces a new
Corner, and I turned to see that the clergy
man had entered noiselessly. He was kneel
ing at his desk, his face buried in the snowy
handkerchief he bore in his hand, hut when
after a moment lie rose, I saw a pale intol
ectual face a g r and head covered by light,
waving hair of golden brown, a tall figure
finely proportioned, but a little too slight
'or the indications of robust health. I was
attracted and interested at first, hut when
he commenced to read, the deep melodious
it flections of his voice comoleted the charm.
1 listened entranced.
From that imtant I aw nothing, felt noth
ing hut his presence, and when the service
and the sermon were ended and he sank
down in the last, silent prayer, it was as if
tiie sun had been withdrawn from my world
and I left in darkness.
Mechanically I followed my friends into
the porch- A sudden shower was gathering
—the air was chill, the bird songs were
Lushed, and all nature wore the gray hut
so omnious of her coming convulsion*. I
had been unconscious of the change, hut the
chill wind had been blowing upon me from
an open window, as I sit in church, and now
I shuddered. ?.§ taking my father's arm I
hurried homeward. Before we reached
the ho-.3 tr j storm broke and all but the
swiftest pedestrians, were thoroughly drench
ed. Ere nighlfell a burning fever alternated
with icy chills in my frame and the effect of
draft anil drenching declared themselves.
Mr. Fletcher had been invited by my fa
ther to dine with us, but had excused lorn
self with the simple remark that his duties
absorbed the entire sabbath day. But during
the week, and after our friends had left us
he called. I saw him in the little uioruing
room where I .rested upon a couch
and he dined with my father. This
visit was followed by many others, until at
last he dined with us nearly every day and
spent most evenings in listening to my (>er
formauce upon the pinano-forte, or in con
versation with me.
I saw the effects of my charm. 1 knew
that I was beautiful,and the world declared
me brilliant. And 1 brought every art that
I had learned, to lure thi6 silent, grave youth
to my feet. It was a triumph to bend his
glorious intellect to a girls will, and I liked
him, too, mote and more as time—that love
ly summer lime wore on. But lam sure no
thought of the fufure or of the consequences
of my acts ever intruded upon me. I had
bien taught to look upon life as a game, and
forgot that all player-, were not skhlful like
And yet I suffered, too, for 1 was not des
titute of sympathy, and my heart not wholly
untouched, either by profound devotion of
this silent grave mad—with all his learning
and mental discipline powerless to his decla
ration of love, and spoke the words that sep
arated us forever.
I went up to rny room half angry with
myself, listening to some smothered re
pro&ches of my conscience, yet repeating that

bellehooi not yet fallen into tradition, could
not marry a poor country clergyman, whose
whole estate was his hands and surplice and

wonderful sermons and all his heavy pasto
And yet I had been struck and pained
with the palor that overspread that noble
face as it bent toward me in farewell.

TUNKHANNOCK, PA., WEDNESDAY, JUNE 22 1864.
Something told me that I had been hard and
cold with hiin, even while mv own heart
pleaded with him. But I stifled the silent
monitor, and ordered my maid to prepare for
the journey I was about to take to join my
friends at Newport.
The morning I left home my father men
tioned,casually,that he hr.d heard Mr. Fletch
er was very ill. I felt myself grow pale and
cold, but I stifled my emotions, and in a con
strained voice expressed my regret at these
tidings and begged my father to provide the
invalid with every heeded luxury from Yerd
hill, and to iuform me in his letters of his

was not happy. Diamonds bound my aching
brow,and flashed above a throbbing heart.
I was cold and unloving to my husband, and
he returned my indifference with scorn. A

in which 1 had 110 share and which 1 shrunk
from even guessing at, and I was alone in so

way toward me through a crowded saloon,
I pressed forward for I telt the need of his

though perhaps not intended as such. He
drew my arm in his, did speak until vte
reached the ante room.
I hen he told me that he had been sum

and that he had come from this melancholy
visit to conduct me thither. He would tell

compelled me, almost by force, to accompany
It was to Mr. Fletcher we were going.
We found him in humble lodgings, for he
had spent his last dollar, and was reduced to
d.e in the midst of poverty and deprivation.
He had heard of us, had seen us when he
crawled forth upon the piazza, and had ven
lured to send for us in his extremity. He
uttered no reproaches, though he told me, in
hollow accents, that my rejection had been
his word of doom ; that he had struggled
with his mortal illness, using as in duty
bourid, all means of restoration, but without
hope. And now that he was dying, lie de

MAKING FUN OF PEOPLE,
! Once when travelling on a stag ecoach
says a writer in a contemporary, I met with
a young lady who seemed to be on the con
stant lookout for something laughable. Ev
try old barn was made the subject of a pass
lugjoke, while the cows and sheep look de
murely at us, little dreaming that folks could
he merry at their expeuse.
All this was, perhaps, harmless enough,
Anitfiala were not sensitive in that rspect.—
They are not likely to have their feelings in

when we come to human beings, that is quit
So it seemed to me, for; after a while, an
aged woman came running across the fields,
lifting up her hands to the coachman, and in
a shrill voice be-rging him to stop. The good
jialured coachman drew up his horses, and
the old lady coming to the fence by the road
side, squeezed herself through between two
posts which were very near together.
The young lady in the stage-coach made
some ludierotfs remark, and the passengers
laugh ed it seemed very excusable, for,in get
ting through the fence, the poor woman made
sad work with her old black bonnet; and
now, tamnga seat beside a well dressed lady
realty looked as if she had been blown there
by a whirlwind.
This was a new piece of fun, and the girl
made the most of it. She caricatured the
old lady upon a card, pretended to take a
pattern of her bonnet, and in various other
ways sought to raise a laugh at her.
At length the poor woman turned a pale,
face towards her and said :
My dear girl, you are now young, healthy,
and happv. I have been so to, but that time
is past. lam uow old and forlorn. The
coach is taking uie to the death-bed of my
only child. And then, my dear, I shall be a
poor old woman, all alone in the world,
where merry girls will think me a very amus
ing object. They will laugh at uiy old-fash
ioned clothes and sad appearance, forgetting
that the old woman has loved and suffered
and will live forever.
The coach now stopped before a poor-look
ng house, and the old lady feebly descended
"How is she?" was the first trembling
inquiry of the mother.
'•Just alive," said the man who was lead

fhe driver mounted his box, and we were
upon the road again. Our merry young
friend had placed the card iu her poefcet.
She was leaning her head upon her band ;
and you may be sure that 1 wa? not sorry
to see a tear upon her fair young cheek. It
was a good lesson, and one which we greatly
hoped would do her good.
