. IThere stood lin this dull, monotonous
chamber, a large antiquity. of an easy chair,
covered with faded damask that-was 'once
rich and brilliant), but now looked only like
a! relic of better days. Thete sat, from
morning till night, in this right regal chair
.of state, a stiff, erect, tall, stately, ancient
lady-. Her own dress was comPosed'of flow

rpre and costly, but which nowdid but hint
a memory of its former glory: 4nd yet this
ancient lady retained the stamp and impress
ofi no ordinary beauty; 'the °Val face still

and yet her counterpart : a fair young girl,
with the same oval face, the same clear blue
eye, the same well-cutlip, a complexion with
evien less of the fresh red rose, but more of
the' unfaded lily,—but, while thus alike in
foem, how different was the expression!
This young girl was very busily employed
twisting and twirling sundry wire threads,

ofl the most delicate of orange -blossoms,

above mentioned shreds and passages,—' I

the bride who is to wear this will be happy.
To morrow she will be a countess.'
Thou thyself oughtest to be in her place,
instead of thus meanly weaving her bridal

Joanna hung her head in silence, and a
te+ fell upon her wreath of orange-blossoms.
She 'then carefully packed up her bridal
wreath of orange-blossoms, and tying on her
simple straw bonnet, with a smile, a kigh,
and a kiss, tripped out of the room, planning
hotr she might make the price of her labor
procure some luxury for the old lady of Roo-

Tire poor student, however, who lived in

Rohillaire. 'Ashamed! Be asharned of
thy shame, young man. One drop of the
blood from an ancient pedigree must still
shine out through all the mists of poverty,
manifesting more nobility than mines of
wealth can emulate.'
'But pretension so ill supported, may bet

There is ,something degenerate in this
age,' said the old lady. Even the daughter
of our house, whom I have nurtured from a
child, and to,whom the dignity of her race
has been a daily lesson, I cannot teach at all
times to remember that she owes to the
princely blood which flows through her
veins, a princely honor. Humiliation is the
virtue of menials. I grant that them it
is a virtue; and yet I cannot cure her of
this, in one of her race, debasing quality.'

went on twisting and twirling her buds and
blossoms together, you know that von were

student, 'since it'is the law that I look to for

I am hoping, some of these days, to be

Now, *;is a well-known fact, that people

that he could be bored by Joanna's grand

ever inipossible that might be when she
was; and then he fell into a reverie - as to
how all this was to end;; and then he re
