Tun Mirrsx.—Seventeen years ago, there was a fair girl, so pure, so loiely, BO refined, that she still rises to my mind as almost akin to angels. She was wooed, and ultimately won by a hand some young man of considerable wealth. He sported a fine team, delighted in hunting, and kept a pack - of houiids. He neither played cards, drank wine, nor used tobacco. He had no ocenpa - L tion, no calling, no trade. He lived on his money, the interest of which would have supiitirbidaa awn handsomely: I never saw the fair,bride till a few days ago. Seventeen years had passed away, and with them her beauty and her youth, her husband's fortune and hislife, during the latter part of which they lived in a log cabin on the banks of Ohio, near Blennerhassett's Island—a whole family in one single room, subsisting on water, fat bacon and .corn bread.

MARIETTA, SATURDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 16, 1865. THE SNOW. From Godey's Lady's Book'. Helice Haight. Flelice Haight lay down,,the brush, after smoothing her hair, and looked steadily, at,her face in the mirror.' A , cold shiver ran through -.her frame as she continued to gazNat.tho,Picture re flected there. "Virhat will Philip,say,and think when he comes to us agaio ?" she murmured. S'haclows,crept over her large eyes. She moved.one.of her hands restlessly over hethce, and then pressed it tight ly to her forehead. Efaight's voice meg heard in the hall below, and presently, she turned the handle of her daughter'e door. " Nearly three o'clock. Helice, and—" Mrs, Haight paused, and then walked into the room. " Helice." "Well, mamma ?" " Teasing yourself Witk.the same old, miserable doubts, dear ?" Helice, raised her face. A fear glit tered on her long lashes : she brushed it away petulantly. " Hosv an I hell) mamma, for how can Philip love me now, with these horrid small pox marks so deeply indented upon my face ?" " If his manly beauty had been marred . at the fetufal battle of Cold Harbor, would your love for him- have wavered in consequence ?" - - - "Oh !'mamma !" Hence Elitighe's pretty forehead flush ,: ed. Tears 'of indignation started in her eyes. "You have faith in yourself,--then have a little in Lieutenant Stewart, Helice," Mrs. Haight answered gently. "If you do not hurry, dear, the Sanitary Robits will be crowded," she continued ; "and, as this will be your first visit there since your illness, it will be less embarrassing to face a few." Belie° •did not reply, , . but tumbled over with nervous haste the ribbons and collars in her drawer. " Belies Haight is - coming, this after- noon," was being said at the Sanitary Rooms. • "A lice Burke saw her, yesterday, and declares she_is quite a fright ; now; somebody observed. It in nothing" to us, if ,Lieutenant Stewart doesn't think so when he cornea home on,his furlough," chippered pretty May Steroea. " I always said beauty was but skin deep." Miss Stakely it was who- made - the observation ; she was remarkably plain looking herself. May Starnes glanced up with a saucy light in her dark eyes. . "Not to be sneered at if it ia but skin deep," she remarked, looking towards Miss Stokely. A flutter . of conversation ensued. Others came in presently. Among the latest was Helice Haight. May Sternes made her way to her directly, end, while assisting Helice tq,remove her bonnet, whispered something in her ear. ?elle() Haight did not start; but her face grew deathly, n its hue. Her iash es drooped as though they would never lift themselves again. May's pretty lip quivered, but she said carelessly, in au undertone-- " Don't' be a silly gonse, Helice.'" She drew out her tiny "Geneva, 'data. "Come, _I w . ill w give you three minutes in which.to smooth your ruined feathers." Reline smiled a faint, sickly smile. and bowed her face until her cheek rested on May's bright hair. How did you hear? who told you?" she asked, in a steady voice. "Your three minutes are not up yet. You have been expeditious," laughed May: " Now, - listen; Hence. Thetpre- - cioue cousin of mine, Guy Sternes, - 's;nt a telejiam to 'aunt Miranda, last even in4, saying that in two, or three days we might expect him, and that. Lieutenant .

Zunt "Miranda's last shot - w e Ets that I had better stay at home, the next two days, and mend my stookitigi, instead of going to the Sanitary Reoms." May looked very beautiful, as she stood there, her little head poised on one side, and her cheeks matching `the delicate cherry ribbons at ber throat., She was a'litile . out of breath with her rapid 'chititering, and her'eyes half flash ing defiance: 1:4)' SterneS, watchin, ny ---g out, at a side wibdow of the Saniiaiyr Rooms, thought, as'he had often done before,' how pretty and piquinf she was in - those moods. The slight, elegant figure standidt beside May'looked fa miliar, to- him, but "but the highly colored scarred face . deceived him, " Heliee is not there," he said, retra cing his steps, and speaking to Lieuten ant Stewart, who was half way up the hall. " I saw 'cousin May, though," he „ continued, a warm glow spreading over his sunburnt cheek "As'iisnal, she was in a flutter of agitation about acitnething." " I am glad Helicie was not there,' Philip Stewart said, as he shook Guy's hand at parting. Philip strode rapidly on to - -Mts. , Haight's house . The veranda, Witfi its Cool, green sprays of vines, looked de serted. 'Through - the open door' he made his way to the`music room. A little riding glove had been negligently throvin upon a pile of sheet' Inas*: With a throb of 'pleasure, Lieutenant Stewart recognized_ it as belonging 'to Malice.

Her fair, @oft beanty row be(ora him, like a vision- of Lielight ;, sweet, half-shy ,bro eyes, the delicats,,paesionate mouth, the qpick,sparlding, smile; whigh-chased the calmness from her forehead. There were no neutral traits about Helice Haight. Bright, beautiful. Hence 1 The thought broke into words.upon his lips. A. smile came down , upon his .face, his cheek dropped easily, against the stuffed back of the rocker, and still in dreams did. Belice's wondrous beauty mingle. Ear, half an )1014 Philip ~§tivkart slept. The long walk, and, the A.ugukt, sou had overpowered him, at, last, unawares. When he did awake, he slowly unclos ed• his eyelids, scarcely knowing where ,he was. Belice stood directly; .before him, a faint,. sickening fear creeping over her heart ea' her eyes remained faste.ned on his conutenence. The de scending sun threw a resplendent glow over the room, lighting , up her motion legk face. A. quick sob parted her lips. Her eyes grew dark with a nameless an certainty" and terror ; but when Lieu tenant Stewart, half eatdhing his breath, ieid out hisaimilo hex:, stiying, " It is ; yes, it is my little Belies-r_ the sob grew into a strong, pasaionate cry. He did not wait for her to come to him, but, when the trembling lips were quieted, and the sobbing breath came evenly, he said, holding botlt , ofher lit tie hands to his heart-- "So Bailee has been doubting ' the strength'of Lieutenant -Stewart's love' for her?" ' Hence did 'not speak—folded safe there-to his greatiheart: -Freed' from the tormenting.doutte •and team-which' had relentlessly' pursued her since her :lciathsome illness, her content and hap piness wereqoo - great for utterance. : . .A •fluttering sigh told of past anguish and pres'entlOy.= • - Philip Htewartiooked down upon the face nestling against his shoulder.
