THE MAIDEN'S CHOICE.
Kate Darlington was a belle end a beauty ; and
had, as might be supposed, not a few admirers.—
Some were attracted by her person, some by her
winning manners, and not a few by the wealth of
her faintly. But though sweet Kate was both a
belle End a beauty, she was a shrewd, clear seeing
girl, and had far mom penetration into character
than belles and beauties arc generally thought to
possess. For the whole tribe of American dandies,
with their disfiguring moustaches and imperials,
she had a most hearty contempt. Hair never
made up, with her for the lack of brains.
But, as she was an heiress in expectancy, and
moved in the most fashionable society, and was,
with all, a gay arid sprightly girl, Kate, as a natural
consequence, drew around her the gilded moths of
society, not a few of whom got their wings scorch•
cd, on approaching too near.
Many aspired to be lovers, and some, more ardent
than the rest, boldly pressed lorward and claimed
her hand. Tint Kate did not believe in the doc
trine that love begets love in all cases. Were this
so, it was clear that she would have to love half a
dozen, for at least that number came kneeling to
her with their hearts in her hands.
Mr. Darlington was a merchant. Among his
clerks was the son of anold friend, who, in dying
some years before, had earnestly solicted him to
have some care over ilia lad, who, at his death,
would become friendless. In accordance with this
request, Mr. Darlington took Übe boy into los count
ing room; and, in order that lie might, with more
fidelity, redeem his promise to the dying father,
also received him into his family.
Edwin Lee proved himself not ungrateful for the
kindness. In a few years lie became one of Mr.
Darlington's most active, trustworthy and intelli
gent clerks ; while his kind, modest, gentlemanly
deportment at home, won the favor and confidence
of all the family. With Edwin, Kate grew up as
with a brother. Their intercourse was of the most
frank and confiding character.
But there carne, at last, a change. Kate, from a
graceful, sweet-tempered, affectionate girl, stepped
forth almost in a day, it seemed to Edwin, a full
grown, lovely woman, into whose eyes he could not
look as steadily as before, and on whose face he
could no longer gaze with the calmness of feeling
he had until now enjoyed.
For a while, Edwin could not understand the
reason of this change. Kate was the same to him ;
and yet not the same. There was no distance—no
reserve on her part; and yet, when lie came into
her presence, he felt his heart beat more quickly,
and when she looked him steadily in tho face, his
eyes would droop, involuntarily, beneath her gaze.
Suddenly, Edwin awoke to a full realization of
the fact that Kate was to him more than a gentle
friend or a sweet sister. From that moment, he
became reserved in his intercourse with her; and,
after a short time, firmly made up his mind that it
was his duty to retire from the family of his bene
factor. The thought of endeavoring to win the
heart of the beautiful girl, whom he had always
loved as a sister, and now almost worshipped, was
not for a moment entertained. To him there would
have been so much of ingratitude in this, amid so
much that involved a base violation of Mr. Darling
ton's confidence, that lie would have suffered any.
thing rather than be guilty of such an act.
But, he could not leave the home where he had
been so kindly regarded for years, without offering
some reason that would be satisfactory. The true
reason he could not, of course, give. After looking
at the subject in various lights, and debating it. for
a long time, Edwin could see no way in which ho
could withdraw from the family of Mr. Darlington,
without betraying his secret, unless he were to
leave the city at the same time. Ile, therefore,
sought and obtained the situation of supercargo in
a vessel loading for Valparaiso.
When Edwin announced this fact to Mr. Darling.
ton, the merchant was greatly surprised, and ap.
peared hurt that the young man should take
such a step without a word of consultation with
him. Edwin tried to explain; but as ho had to
conceal the real truth,bis explanation rather tended
to make things appear worse than better.
Kate heard the announcement with no less sur
prise than her father. The thing was so sudden,
so unlookcd for, and moreover so uncalled ler, that
she could not understand it. In order to take away
any pecuniany reason for the step lie was about to
take, Mr. Darlington, after holding a long conver
sation with Edwin, made him offers far more ad.
vantagcous than his proposed expedition could be
to him, viewed in any light. But lie made them
in vain. Edwin acknowledged the kindness, in the
warmest terms, but remained firm in his purpose
to sail with the vessel.
"Why will you go away and leave us, Edwin ?"
said Kate, one evening when they happened to be
alone, about two weeks before his expected depar.
ture. "I do think it very strange:"
Edwin had avoided, as much as possible, being
alone with Kate, a fact which the observant maiden
had not failed to notice. Their being alone now
was from accident rather than design on his part.
"I think it right fur the to go, Kate," the piling
man replied, as calmly as it was possible for him to
speak under the circumstances. "And when I
think it right to do a thing, I never hesitate or look
" You have a reason for going, of course. Why
then not tell it frankly ? Aro we not all your
Edwin was silent, and his eyes rested upon the
floor, while a deeper flush than usual was upon his
face. Kate looked at him fixedly. Suddenly, a
new thought flashed through her mind, and the
color on her own cheeks grew warmer. Her voice
from that moment was lower and more tender; and
her eyes, as she conversed with the young man,
were never a moment from his time. As fur him,
his embarrassment in her presence was never more
complete, and he betrayed the secret that uses in
his heart even while he felt the more earnest to
conceal it. Conscious of this, he excused himself
and retired as soon as it was possible to do so.
Kate sat thoughtful for some time after he had
loft. Then rising up, she went with a firm step to
her father's room.
" I have found out," she said, speaking with
great composure, "the reason why Edwin persists
in going away."
"Alt: What is the reason, Kate 7 I would
give much to know."
"He is in love," replied Kate, promptly.
"In hive! How do you know that 7"
" I made the discovery tomight."
"Love should keep him ut !some, and not drive
him away," said Mr. Darlington.
"But lie loves hopelessly," returned the maiden.
"He is poor, and the object of his regard belongs to
a wealthy family."
" And her friends will have nothing to do with
" i ant not sure of that. But he formed an ne.
quaintance with the young lady under circuits.
stances that would make it mean, in his eyes, to
urge any claims upon her regard."
"Then honor as well as love takes !inn away."
" Honor in fact; not love. Love would make
him stay," replied the maiden with a sparkling
eye, and something of proud elevation in the tones
A faint suspicion of the truth now came stealing,
on the mind of Mr. Darlington.
" Does the lady know of his preference fur her?"
"Not through any word or act of his, designed (0
communicate a knowledge of the fict," leplicd
Kate, her eyes falling under the earnest look bent
upon her by Mr. Darlington.
" Ilas he made roe on confidant r
"No, sir, I dot& irtite secret has ever nasacd his
Inrst." Kate's face was begimong• In Cr iIIISI.III, but
site drove back lire tell talc blood with a strong cf.
fort of the will.
"Then how crune you possessed of it 7" inquired
The blood came back to her face with a rush,
and she bent her hand so that her dark glossy curls
fell over and partly concealed it. In a moment or
two she had regained her self posession, and looking
up, she answered,
"Secrets like this do not always need oral or
written language to make them known. Enough,
father, that I have discovered the fact that his heart
is deeply imbued with a passion for one who knows
well his virtues—his pure, true heart—his many
sense of honor; with a passion for one who has look

forth must regard him with a different and higher
Kate's voice trembled. As she uttered the last
few words, she lost control of herself, and Lent for
ward and hid her face upon her father's arm.
Mr. Darlington, as might well be supposed, was
taken altogether by surprise at so unexpected an
announcement. The language used by his daughter
needed no interpretation. She was the maiden be
loved by his clerk.
" Kale," &lid he, after a moment or two of bur.

"And I"—said Kate, rising up, and taking the
words from her father—"and I am the daughter of
a man who can appreciate what is excellent in even
those who are humblest in the eyes of the world.—
Father, is not Edwin far superior to the artificial
men who flutter around every young lady who now
makes her appearance in the circle where we move?
Knowing him as you do, I am sure you will say
" Rut, Kate—"
"Father, don't let us argue this point. Do you
want Edwin to go away I" And the young girl
laid her hand upon her parent, and looked him in
the face with unresisting afreetion.
"No, dear; I certainly don't wish him to go."
" Nor do I," returned the maiden, as she leaned
forward again, and laid her face upon his arm. In
a little while she arose, and, with her countenance
turned partly away, said—
" Tell him not to go, Father—"
And with these words she retired from the room.
On the next evening, as Edwin was sitting alone
in one of the drawing•rooms, thinking of the long
night of absence that awaited him, Mr. Darligton
came in, accompanied by Kate. They seated them
selves near the young man, who showed some
sense of embarrassment. There was no suspense,
however, for Mr. Darlington said—
" Edwin, we none of us wish you to go away.—
You know that I have urged every consideration in
my power, and now I have consented to unite with
Kate in renewing a request for you to remain. Up
to this time you have declined giving a satisfrclory
reason for your sudden resolution to leave; but a
reason is due to us—to me in particular—and I now
most earnestly conjure you to give it."
The young man at this became greatly agitated,
but did not venture to reply.

"You are still silent on the subject," said Mr.
"He will not go, father," said Kate, in a tender
appealing voice. "I know he will not go. We
cannot let him go; kinder friends he will not find
anywhere than he has here. And we shall miss
him from our home circle. There will be a vacant
place at onr board. Will you be happirr away,

The good ship " Leonora" sailed in about ten
days. She had a supercago on board; but his
name was not Edwin Lee.
Fashionable people were greatly surprised when
the beautiful Kate Darlington married her father's
clerk ; and moustached dandies curled their lips,
but it muttered not to Kate. She had married a
man in whose worth, affection, and manliness of
character, she could repose a rational confidence.
If not fashionable,she was a happy wife.

No one familiar with the aspect of towns inhabi.
ted by artisans, needs to be infurmed that the close
of the week is marked by very striking peculiarities.
As the ponderous engine of human labor slackens
its revolutions, and at length stands still, and gentle
rest begins to spread her wings over the ibunts of
toil, there is at once an addition made to the hap.
piness of man, which no enthusiasm can well over
value. In a few moments we may apply to the
great capital or manufacturing town, the expres
sive verse Wodsworth's famous sonnet on London
:Jl that mighty heart ie I) log sull.”
The forge and smithery are ceasing to smoke.
The mighty arms and shafts moved by steam, are
dropping into repose. The quick report of millions
of manual utensils has terminated. Jaded animals,
bu•viug their necks, are set free from the yoke;
while innumerable sons and daughters of toil, re
leased from the neecsity of further work, are ready
for rest and pleasure, for improvement or vice.
The thought is pleasing. As I survey the crowded
city, and allow my imagination to picture the. de.
tails of the scene, I behold a thousand delightful
images of domestic comfort.
N ow, according to an extensively prevalent cus
tom, the well earned labor of reward is received.
Now the anxieties of the tedious week are suspen
ded. Families separated during the preceding
days, come together, better prepared than at other
times, to aid one another, and to enjoy one another's
company. One imbroken day between two nights
-of unaccustomed repose, is a golden prize in expec.
tation. The meeting of parents, brothers, sisters,
children, sometimes of husband and wife, who have
been kept apart by the stress of labor, is not with
out some points which deserve the poetic touch of
a Crabbe or AR Elliot. IL is. with the virtuous, a
season of hallowed affections.
Hippy is that working.mcin who, when, at the
week's end, he throws MI, in the bath, the soils of
labor, can with equal case lay aside the wrong
emotions of evil habits of the same period, and with
.t clear concicncc prepare fin. the day of rest! Hap
py is the youth who, when lie conies home to greet
his aged parents, and the sister of whom he is
proud, feels that no tarnish has conic over his
heart! Happy the blooming- girl, hotvevcr lowly
her calling, who enters the humble dwelling with
the elastic tread of conciuus innocence! Blessed
family, where the call to rest is but the signal of
every kindly affection!
I know that with comae even in early life, the
end of the week is the beginning of a frolic. The
time when wages arc received is apt to be a season
of merriment if oot of vice. In summer, multitudes,
in every sort of vehicles, stream forth out of the
various avenues of our cities and towns. lii winter
the streets resound till a late hour with a tread of
idlers and debauchces. And in every season, Sat.
tirday night fills the taverns, oyster houses, porter
cellars, and other resorts, with a double allowance
of hale fellows.—There is a triple consumption of
tobacco and strong drink un these occasions. So
that there is a dark side to the picture of human
life. But even here I find an illustration of some
of my favorite positions about the conservative in.
finance of the domestic institution. The worst
men, I willcontinue to atlirm, are those, who, either
from choice or necessity, have no home. Perhaps
out of a thousand families gathered after a week's
work, there is not one gathered for vicious indul
gencc.—Where youth arc vicious, 'they comonly
hate the hearth stone. Saturday evening is a good
criterion of the attachment which a young man
bears to the virtuous attractions of home. As the
guardian angel of the fireside, woman has here a
great peril and hopeful work. I wish 1 could im.
press on the wife, the mother,and the sister, the
value of their influence in this particular. Make
home delightful, and you will work wonders. That
wayward youth may, perhaps, be won by sisterly
invitation. Sparc nothing that is Fairly within
your power to make it worth his while to spend his
Saturday evening with the family. So long as you
have this hold upon him, you may almost bid defi
ance to the attempts of evil companions.
Let it not be forgotten that we owe all these
good influences to religion. There would be no
Saturday evening, if there were no Christian Sab
In countries where man and beast work seven
days in the week, there is nothing which resembles
the pleasant scenes to which I have alluded. In
such countries there is little of what we mean by
home. Who would undertake to explain to a

the greatest consolations of life; it is the nurse of

[WHOLE NUMBER, 952
The keeper of a country inn, situated some
dozen miles from the city, an honest, ignorant, un.
sophisticated farmer, taking it into his head that
his establishment wanted a new sign, (which was
a very sensible conclusion, inasmuch as naught was
to be seen of the old sign, save a cracked, broken,
disfigured board, creaking on its hinges as it swung
lazily in the wind, and not. having the least vestige
of the original painting left on it) took it into his
head to have a new one executed, and accordingly,
being in our goodly Quaker city on business, con.
suited the proprietor of one of those shops, where
"house and sign painting and glazing" are done.
" Well," said he, "how much are you goin' to
charge me; you know I can't afford to pay too
much, 'cause I'm not a money bag, and you city
people can stick it on sometimes?"
"Ten dollars," replied the painter; " I could
paint you one for ten dollars, although it's too little
a price for the quantity of work."
"Too little I" ejaculated the inn-keeper," tuo lit.
tie! du you call ten dollars too little for paintin' a
sign By thunder, I cannot afford to pay any
such a price."
"Why," returned the artist, "you can't get it
done any cheaper. What do you expect to give?"
" Well, I don't know," said the inn-keeper," but
I guess five dollars would be quite plenty."
"Five &Hats!" exclaimed the artist; but seeing
what kind of a customer ho had to deal with, lie
resolved to "make him pay for his stinginess;' so
eller some &inuring, he agreed as follows
"I'll paint you a sign for five dollars. You say
you want a white bear on it. Well, I'll paint you
the bear, without a chain, for the amount you of
"0, hang the chnin, I don't care about. having it
any how. Paint the bear without it, and I'll pay
you five dollars."
The bargain was thus closed. In due time the
sign was painted, delivered to its owner, and hung
up aloft in place of the old one, where it was the
admiration of the family for a whole week after-
At length there come one night a heavy storm
of thunder and lightning, accompanied with a del
uge of rain. Next morning it cleared off, and the
old fellow went nut as usual to admire his new
sign, when what was his astonishment to behold
not a vestige of the bear left. The picture was
completely effaced from both sides. His first
thought was that come mischievous youngster of
the neighborhood had scraped it off, hut there was
no evidence of any scraping, and the paint was
gone as smoothly as could he.
"I'll go to town to.day and see that painter,"
said he:.. he has cheated roe."
And so in double quick time he was landed in
the painter's shop.
" What kind of a sign was that you painted for
"A white bear."
" I know it was, but there is not much white
bear left now. It's clear gone. The board's there.
but there's not a mite of a white bear left on either
side. How is this 7
"Oh:it's clear enough. Cheap goods are nev
er the best; I told you I'd paint you a bear withonf
a chain for five dollars. I did so. How could ye..
expect such a wild animal as that to remain with.
out being chained."
The countryman could " not exactly see into
this," but after much grumbling, concluded that it
was best to hove the chair, painted in the picture,
and thus insure its remaining. For an additional
ten dollars this was done, and the renewed picture
did not disappear after that. This puzzled the
countryman more than ever, but he concluded the
painter was right. The render, will of course,
have guessed that the lost sign was painted in
wafer colors, and the last in oil paint. The water
colors disappeared, as a matter of course, after a
hard drenching. The countryman generally gave
people a good price after that.
4. Writ Din HE FUCK THAT HAT?" Some few
days since, our readers will recollect, that we pub.
!idled a humorous paragraph headed as above.
The writer of the same gave some facto, and spec
ulated upon the matter, but lie could not furnish an
answer to the questiou for the life of him. Neither
can we ; the most we can do is to tell a story, and
leave our readers to answer the question. A few
waggish boys, on Monday, placed an old hat, a
venerable looking old hat, not presenting the ap
pearance of hissing been much kicked, upon the
sidewalk in Leverett street; beneath, was placed a
heavy stone. The boys then scattered to await the
result. The first person that passed, looked as if
he was in haste for his supper (it was near six
o'clock ;) lie merely cast a. glance at the hat, and
rapidly strode on. The second passer-by was a
stout, strapping black fellow, who cast upon the
hat ci peculiarly malignant glance, and the next
instant, as thunder follows the flash, he gave it a
tremendous kick, and recoiled from the object of
his hate, (the hat, which didn't roll in the gutter,)
with a veil that started the whole neighborhood.
Some filly boys, as if by magic, stood upon the
sidewalk, who laughed as if their sides mould
burst. The negro limped away, showering curses
"thick and fast" upon the venerable bat— but
"why did he kick it ?"—N. 0. Bee.
