Start not, my fastidious reader, when li announce that the young gf-ntlemitii.in whose favor and fortunes I would ci.i.s' your friendly sympathies, as the hero of, this sketch, is, or rather ?, a medical itudtnt. No I am very well aware thai medical students are proverbially " hard case'' wild, spreeing, careless, skeptical ly inclined young gentlemen, whose hind kerchiefs fnll of ether, and whens glove are strongly suggestive of rhubarb ; whose talk runs large, with bold jests on grave tubjecl$, ly anatomical allusions, and startling hint at somcihing Usir b.irrnp ami awfu'( Which ata lo oam watt be unlawfu'," and whose very laughter has a sort of booy-Mttle about it. But our friend. W ill Ashley, fortunately belonged not to the Rob Sawyer and Ben Allen class of Esculapian disciples. He was a man of refinement, intellect, educa tion, and principle pleasing address, fine person, and good family. K-publiran n I am, I can but think much of goo'l blood pure and honorable blood, I mean. He had no bravado, no preten-ion, no reck lessness, no skepticism about him. He chose hia profession at the firat. ftom a real, natural leaning that way, and pur sued it with true enthusiasm and 11 tiring constancy ; and this partiality and devotion have been rewarded with ihn happiest uc cess. Dr. Ashley is now regarded by hia many patients, with a remarkable confi dence and affection. To them, there seems healing in the very creak of his shoes on the stairs," his cheerful smile lights up the ick room like sunshine ; I. is gentle words and sympathetic tones are as balm and ' freshening oil" to hearts and minds, wounded and distempered with the body, and his bright laugh and playful wit are a positive tonic to the weak and nervous and (earful. But I am anticipating; my story has pertaajm most to do wi'b the studeot Jife or Aahley.

There j eui.e a renv at last a brief reply, "il- len in the dsar, familiar bund, but bearing for a signature, a strange name.

At Buffilo, our travelers took the after noon boat for Chippewa. It was a bright, and breezy day, errly in July water, earth and sky were lit up gloriously by the declining 'sun, as ihey swept down that grand. immortal river. As the brother aad sister stood on deck, silently drinking in ihe rare beauty of the scene and hour, they noticed a party near them.distinguish ed amid all the crowd, by a ceitain quiet elegam-e of dress and manner, with a bear ing of perhaps unconscious superiority. This wa a family party, and consisted ol an fld rly gentleman, Mr. Harley, a weal th v banker, and an honorable citizen of N;w Votk his w.fe. a sweet, motherly tonkin" woman and their daughter.J ulitl a fair and delicate girl of eighteen, and their only sou, Master Fred, a lad of nine or ten. Ashley was a thorough republican proud and poor; and being now more than usually inclined to coldness and re serve, instinctively shrunk from all contact with this party, in whom he at once recog nized the air patrician and exe'usivc. But towards evening, Mr. Harley made some courteous advances, nnd finally succeeded in ceiling up quite a free and animated conversation with his young fellow-Ira. ler. with whose well-bred air and thought ful countenance he had been attracted and impressed. They discoursed on the mag nificent scenery around them, then 00 the battles and aieges. bold generalship and grand fighting which had made classic ground of the wild Niagara frontier ; and Ashley, who " M adifab!clfjkeri' JJapcr icoolei to " ' WEDNESDAY, JAN. brcame earnest and even cl ,qt. t. in spite; of hinifelf. All it once, in looking i 1 i met the beautiful blu eyes of M ss Jo'iet fixed upon him ith evident imeresl Hnd admiration. The young laly dropped her gnze.initanily, while a deup bliih sufTised her bright, ingenuous fare. An invo!un lary thrill of p Ion.ure agisted the hmirt of Aihley, and hit cold eye Lindltd with a new lire; but as tho'i returned the tho't of all the fuTUooesa and coquetry, and ... iij ,e bit his lip, and with a few ha.ty words, turned abruuily, acd d'awin l.is :ter' arms within his own, walked to thy fide of of the vesael, and there s'ood, i'i n:ly and iiiiiodilv, gaz tig down into the darkening waters and olf into the deepening twilight.

That night, after supper, which he had served in a private parlor, Mr. Hatley sought the room of Ashley his heart overflowing with gratitud towurd the young hero, and his thought busy with plan of generous recompense. At the door he met a servant hearing away a wel Iravelling-suit.which sight quickened even more his warm and kindly feelings. He entered, lo find Mr. Ashly wrapt in a dressing-gown, sitting by a table. h head bent down on his hands, a plate of; light food, almost untasted, and a cup of tea, half drunk, pushed back from before him. He was looking even paler and more spiritless than usual. Id fact, our friend was completely exhausted by the excitement and exertion of the evening, and consequently deepened into moodiness and reserve. Ho rose, however, as his visitor entered, and bowing politely, beg ged him to be seated. Hut Mr. Hirley came forward, took his hand, and pressing it warmly, looked kindly into that pale. quiet face, his own countenance all a-glow. and tears actually glistening in his deep set.gray eyes. Ashley cast down hisown eye in painful embarrassment, which Mr. Harley perceiving, took the proffered eb.iir.and strove to converse awhile 00 in different topics. Bul he soon came round to the subject nearest his heart dwell long and at Urge on h paternal joy nod gratitude, not seeming to head the impa tience of his sensitive auditor, and finally closed with, ' - I trust iheir is some way in which I can prow my gratitude in part reward you for your generous heroism. , 1 en me, my dear young friend, can I repay you in any way !" ; To Ashley's jealous ear were was,- lone of patronage ao insulting jingle of the banker's purse in these words, at which he involuntarily drew himself up, and curled his short upper hp ; and when Ncujo.

Mr. Hurley, quite taken aback, chilled, uud wiihJ deeply hurl, ros' at once, and wub a stately bjw and a cld good-night,' parted from the rescuer of his child, the young tn-ro, wiih whom fiva minuie be fore he would have di idedhi'r fortune. Tired and iiidiffert-Dt, Ashley flung him self upon his bed, ami slept soundly till late in the morning ; then ioe with a headache, made a light breakfast, and hur ried driwn to Talile It jck with bis sister, who had beeti up since daybreak, imps tiently awaiting his appearance1. Ashley wn long lost in that first con ""idaiion of the graed scene before him ; his suu! srrmfd born to a new life a new world of beauty, and power, and dread, overwhelming sublimity. The day was wnndrously beautiful, and floods of sunlight were mingled with the waters, and pouring over thtt stupendous precipice ; into the darkest deeps fell the f-arless, glad sunbeams, sounding like gol den plummets those terrib'e abysses. There hung the rainbow, and C len.ns she gazed, remnrked a wild-bird.who seemed sporting jfi lh(j ,lirough lm j-iuminved arch, and become glorified in its midst ; and it seemed to her like an innocent .con fiding spirit, coming near to the might and grandeur of Ieity, through the beautiful gateway of love. Ashley was at length roused from his trance of h'gh-wrought rapture, by feeling n small, timid hand laid on his arm, and turned to see Master Fred standing at his side, with a faint glow on his check, and an affectionate pleasure shining in hi sun ken eye. The lad, In-day someihing of an invaliJ, was accompanied nnd half supported by a servant. Ashley fell an instinctive attraction towards his child, who was a floe intelligeut boy, by the wny, a ...u.-j wiin uun on 'iv ui.ii,; nj u. mi'iarly than ho had ver fcl j;.,-... tn converse, with tha elder Harley.

But after all. the blessing of that mother sunk into his heart a good heart, though somewhat wayward, and ndly out of harmony with life just now. A short lime after this, Ashley again saw Miss Harley. They met in fearful place, behind the sheet, on Termination I li ock the secret, dread abode, lite dim. awful sanctuary of sublimity. Even then, Ahley, exalted by poetry, solemnized by grandeur as he was. could bul remark the miracle of beauty which mado Ihe young lady look lovely as ever in the rude, grotesque costume, tlie clumsy water-proof dress provided for his adven turous expedition. He next noticed the fearless, yet awe-struck enthusiasm, the high, rapt expression of her face, as, sheltering her eyes from the storm of spray wiih her fuir hand, she gaz-d upward, lo w here the huge colomna of water, dark green, and snowy white, leaped over iho .helving prec;pice, and plunff-d wiih a ihimilerous roar into iho black abyss at her eide.

He studied as diligently as ever, and wai-eJ patiently for tL. r.-iL.ru -lira J ild a"'" in the future the fair, gold, n future were " bound to com?.' It happeued that the young physician's way home from his t ffi.-e, lay past, and very near to the elegant residence of Mr. t wealthy and somewhat distin guished citizen of II ; nd, pouring through the open windows of his mansion, he one night heard the sweetest singing that had ever met his ear. It was a clear, fresh con'.ra'.to voice, artistic in execution, vet sweet, and full of feeling. Ashley, a fine singer himself, was pas sionately fund of music ; and he lingered long before that house, walking up and down beneath the thick shadows of the "rand old elms. - j -1. 1 This was but the beginning of p.easure, night after night, for some, weeks. lou"a the young physician in the same J when he ws almost always so happy as, to hear that rare, delirious singiog, ihrdl- j ing andquive.ing through ihe slid r.nd j ucni a. . j by the piano ; but sometimes ho would see a gay group on the piazz t. and among them a slight figure in white, looking very -i- -a b-.licaia in the moonlight ; then there would come the miming t .---r and sweet love-lays of Italy, or wild bal lads r f Spain. And thus it went on, till Ashley, the in visible listner, had become altogether en chanted, spell-bound. in love with a voire, ti l fast and far in the dim distance, faded away that late lamiliar vUion in yellow oil-cloth and falling hood, nnd fair, kind ling countenance. He now spent as many hours over his books as ever, bul his iho'is. alas! were far enough;from the page ; for, n tll fh ir.uh. bii.H exiio.se his boyish mly dreaming out the ' . , ... , lorm anu leaiun-s .1 iiicu'.ii - of her wi'h the voice. Unlike his former self, he now looked sean hingly at the fair f romi-naders whom he met on the street, and there sw pretty young ladies enough, but no one in whom he recognized his idea of ibe sweet singer. Al length the hour of good fortune came alike to the physician and lo the lover. Just at sunset, on a pleasant evening a voung horseman came dashing up to Or. Ashley's office, to summons him to a lady who had dislocated her ankle in springing from her horse. Our hero' heart beat quick as the messenger directed him tn the house of Mr. N. The doctor was shown iiilo a small parlor, where, en 11 louniie, chid in a white wrapper, reclined his first patient. A wealth of rich, golden hair, somewhat dishevelled, first attracted Ashley's eye ; there was something stran gely familiar in those bright curls, and be was not taken altogether by auprise when Mrs. N -presented him to her niece -JWi.s Hurley." The lady was lying with hei hands over her face, to conceal the tear drawn forth by her acute suffering ; but at the mention of the doctor's name, she removed tlwrn, and lookhd up eagerly, smiling in the midst of her pain, with pleasure and sur- prisei But this was no time for more than a aimnle recotrniiion. and the next mumeni r f aw the doctor bending professioally over the ihnbbing and swollen foot of ihe suf ferer.
