V; xt re a little apart irom the re.-t of our party,
and when we had gathered our hands full of the

of John irant, while he wreathed the hud.s and

city f.-r se veral we.ks. 1 did riot see him for

ostensibly on huin.s. hut it was rumored that
a fx autihil young lady of li , whose aciUaint
mice he had made, was the real cause of his fre
quent visits to that city.
In a little while it was said, and upon good
authority, that John Grant was engaged to 1m;
married to Mary Wallace of I! , and it was
nf-o sai 1 that she was very young and very beau
tiful. Never till then, till I knew he was to
marry another, was the secret of my own heart ;
revtaled to me ; hut , I knew how I had loved
him, how all hope, all joy, all earthly happiness J
was entered in him. Even now I shudder when j
I think of that fearful time, when life seemed j
eueh a heavy burden, and I longed for a time to !
lay it down in the grave; but I could not; a
thorny path opened before me, and I was to walk j
in it. though my feet were pierced and bleeding j
at every step. I had hoped before that I was a j
Christian, that my will had feen Bulxlued to j
God's will, hut now my heart was filled with j
rebellious murmuring, and days passed ore that i
etubborn spirit olxyed the voice of its Father, j

CHAP I Ell II.
John Grant returned to town soon after his
engigetuent, and in a few weeks Mary Wallace
came to Elm Wood, on a visit to his sister. Soon
after her arrival I was invited to a party to be
given for her. I dreaded to go, and yet 1 could
not stay away ; how plain I looked as I stood
liefbre rny looking glass that night, in a black
silk, with a few scarlet verbenas in my hair.
Did I wear them leeause he said once they Con
tracted well vith rny dark hair? I was early,
and the rooms were filled when they arrived.
Oh, Mary Wallace ! I do not wonder beloved
you you were beautiful, as you cam- fl at;ng
into the room, in a dress of light blue silk, cov
ered with a cloud of gossamer lace, your golden
curls failing over your sweet, ehildish face, and
your blue ees running over with happiness, and
tie but I dared not look at him long, for I was
not very str. ng.
In the course of the evening I was introduced
to her, and strange as it was, from that moment
she seemed to cling to me ; she was a child in
arth'ssni sa, and soon commenced talkirg of
John," asking if I knew him, etc. 44llw
strange, he never mentiomil yu, he to! 1 me of

I said, pitying his :nbarrav.i:ient, He has so
many friends, it isn't at all singular that he
should have forgotten on.," but 1 knew then, as
I d. now, that le bad not forgotten me.
Just then, looking up. 1 saw in a mirror op
posite the reflection of our litth group and
John Grant! wh n I saw tin contrast between
Mary Wallace and myself. I forgave you fully, if

Mary Wallace came to see me frequently while
she stayed in town; sometimes, not often, accom
p mied by John. It wa- an autumn alt. rno .n,
lull of tloirds and sunshine, when she came to
ray her farewell call. He was with her, watoli
ing her vt.-ry movement with loving pride, and
yet it seemed to ru- that he regard d l.ei some
what as a beautiful plaything, winding her yel
low curls around his fingers, and calling her pet
names. We went out into the girden t get
b-oiquet-j of the bright-htie.l flowers, and as sh
ran about. laughing and talking, picking fl .wers
and wreathing them in her hair, .r decorating
John's hat with garlands, she s-'em-d a l-.velv
and bewitching child. John had gradually lost
his constraint and embarrassed manner when
with me, and, excepting that we never approach
el personalities in our conversation, our inter
course was getting to le something as it once
Our tastes in many things were similar, we
had read the same books and admired the same
authors, and up-on most of the important subjects
connected with human life, our thoughts were
alike. We were speaking of some work we had
lately read, and were quite interested in discuss
ing its merit., when Mary suddenly checked her
I.appy play, and with a grave face walked silently
for a "few moments at John's side. At last she
said, You never talked that way to me, John,
belt it's W tuse I don't know enough." 44 You

laughingly, for I saw John could not answer

.Soon after this, J..hn Grant left Kim Wood,
to engage in buin jss in a v.-.-m city. I seldom
h'-ari, and never mentioned his name. Mary
Wallace wrote me fr-ijuently during the winter ;
her lett-rs Were like herself, "graceful and charm

much of John, how proud she was of him,
what h-ttera he wr.te, s much let:er than h- r's,
and w,t-n't it strange he should love such a child
as she was. .She went on writing in this way ;
f jT several months, but at length there was a 1
chan"e in her manner of speaking of John ; it j
seemed as though she was not quae as happy as j
she had been ; she said she began to be dis- :
couraged about evr knowing any more, and 1
hinted that John was getting dissatisfied with ;

tion on her favorite cat or canary. A month or j

she wrote that her engagement was broken by j
mutual consent they were not at all suited to
each other, and no doubt would both be happier." j
.She concluded with a long account of her new
black kitten 44 Topsy," who was a 44 most know
ing cat and had such pretty features."
CHAI'TEIt IV. AND LAST.
Two years passed, and I seldom heard John's
name mentioned, and if I thought of him at all
I believed I had conquered my old attachment.
My life fl wed on quietly and serenely. I tried
tbj useful to others, and in regular employ
ment and recreation I was content. Yn there
a caj acity fr higher happiness unemployed a
craving of my w. .man's nature unsupplied?
One year ago how well 1 remember the day

A Fairy Talc with a .TloraJ.
There was once a poor woman and she had no
dearer wish than once, by accident or a miracle,
to obtain a great deal of money, b vause she be
lieved that if she only had money, all sorrow,
accident and suffering, would be as gone. The
accident and the miracle did riot happen for a
l ng time, however, till the woman once heard
that on the s!oje of a hill there grew among
other grass a weed, and if any one were so fortu
nate as to pluck it, the mountain would open,
the plucktT would walk into a large cave, at
which seven men sat around a tab1,.', who would
allow her to take awav as much of their treasure j
as she could carry. I rom this moment the poor i
woman had nothing more pressing to do than to
fetch hillgrass daily during the summer for h- r j
cow, because she hoped to pluck the miraculous I
weed among it. And so she did ; one day the '
woman h id again Collected grass, carried the j
heavy basket on her head, and led her little
daughter by the baud, w'e n a large rock op. ned
noiselessly hefore a well-oiled door, and allowed :
her to see into a cave, where seven old men with j
long beards were sitting around a table, and i
piles of gold were heap- d around them. The j
woman naturally s.oii took advantage of the op- !
j .rtunity, emptied her basket upon the ground
a:; 1 filled it with gold. When this was done,
and she was going out, one of the old men cer
tainly said. 4 Woman, forget riot the best
thing!" but sic did not listen, and went olF.
lhit she had scarce reached the entrance of the
cave when the rock closed up again, and shut in
the woman's little daughter, who had remained
behind J laying with the gold.
Then the mother's grief and agony were great;
she ran lamenting to the clergyman and told
him what had occurred. The latter said she
must wait s ven years till she could find her
d iiighter again; after that j .-ri .l she mu-t go
again to the mountain at the same hour in which
she lost her child, and wait for what might hap
pen ; but she bad mad'4 a grand mistake in iiite
emptying her basket f r the sake of the gold, be
cause the miracle weed was among the grass she
threw away. Now she remembered the old
man's words, and 1 am "d to her sorrow that she
had d ne wr ng to consider wealth as the highest
II nv Slightly she now valued this gold she
; brought ln..me, when si,,; had to pay I t it by the
I. ss of her child! She thought " further, and
found that th'-re were many blessings in the
world which, if lost, reduced" the value of gold
to nothing. This and many other things the
p.r rich woman l ad time to reflect n during
the sewn years, and, to her honor be it said.
: that till the exjiration of that time, she would
, not lock at or handle the gold. At length the
day came on which the hoped to find her child
again. The woman hurried to the hill in the
te igliborh od of the rock where her child was
j shut up; and see there! from the distance she
perceived the treasure of her heart, her child
.' sleeping in fr nt of the rocks ; it was as young
! and I, looming as when she lost it. She lifted it
tenderly and kissed it a thousand times with tears
', on the road bom.-, thinking. If all the gold
,' were out of my room I should be as happy as if
; I had found all the treasures in the World."
Put the gold was riot gone; and so she was
; grateful for that, and enjoyed the advantage of
i wealth, and spent much on the good education of
I h r daughter, and thus the well-trained maiden
i became a great and invaluable treasure. Vnt

Scat in tin Houm' ofLurds.
The following is an interesting account of the
ceremonies observed on the occasion when tne
l'riuceof Wales first took his scat in the II jus
of Lords. Parliament had been opened in the
morning bv the reading of the Oueen s speech
The Commons bavin;? ouitted the II mse of
Lords, the latter adjourned, the mace remaining
on the ttble, in front of the woolsack. Jror two
nure hours the large gilded hall was silent like a
hermitage; the rays of the sun failing from
above through the painted windows, full with
the life-size pictures of a hundred Kings and
(jueens of Great Lritaiu, and playing on the
iljor in ever-varying fantastic shadows. t was
not until the large bell in the eastern tower had
struck a quarter to four that signs of life began
again to be isible. One by one the noble peers
ot the realm began to drop in and take, their
seats upon the leather-covered forms, now vacated
by the ladies ; while the benches close to the
right of the woolsack got filled with dignitaries
of the Church, crowding together nearer; than
ever. The noble lord at the head of the Foreign
OfY;ee L'arl Russell, who had ensconced hous'ell
comfortably, a few minutes previous, in the seat
belonging to the Primate of All England, was
driven from his repose by the rustling of the lawn
sleeves, and had scarcely composure enough to
find his way down to the ministerial bench.
At this moment the clock struck four, an j the
Lord Chancellor, in his dark robes of office, once
more entered the Hons..'. The narrow-seated
form in front of the throne has now been remov
ed, and for the first time the Speaker of the Lords
takes his seat on the broad woolsack, standing,
theoretically, not within but without his lljuse.
2o eooner has his lordship taken his scat, when
the youngct of the members of the Episcopal
bench stejnj forward to the table on which lies the
mace, and begins to say prayers. All the Lords
simultaneously sink on their knees. Again the
vast hall is lulled into deep silence, through
which only the voice of the bishop is he;:rd.
.Slowly, after the final Amen ! the peers of (lit cat
Uritain resume their scats, to listen to a few
words from the Speaker. Then all eyes turn
t nvards the door opposite, lrom which issue's a
The coronet of the Duchy of Cornwall is borne
on a velvet cushion in front of the solemn corh ge,
consisting of some twenty lords, robed in -long
scarlet mantles, with the collars and insignh. of
the Order of the Garter. In the midst ut the
procession walks a youthful figure, with head
erect, the brow flushed with excitement, it is
the heir apparent of Great liritain, Albert
Edward, Prince of Wales, now going to take ids
seat for the first time as Duke of Corn wall among
the peers of the realm. I-d by the Colonial ?cc-
upon the roll of Parliament. While the length
ened document is being read, there is time to
examine the look and physiognomy of the young
est of the peers of the realm.
The Prince of Wales' face is one to which a.s
yet no justice has been done by painters Mid
photographers. It is a pretty face on paper or
canvas, but nothing more, and it looks uninean-
ing almost in its extreme juvenility. The living
j original is very different indeed from the carle de
. visile portrait. The blue eyes look serious almost
I to sadii'-ss ; the small mouth and high forehead
j beam with intelligence, and the whole expression
j of the face is that of the thoughtful and earnest
j man rather than of the growing youth. The
Prince of Wales has the features of his late father
' even more than of his mother. He has that look
of modesty which so much characterized the
Prince Consort ; that same refined outline of the
lower face, denoting the absence of grosser: pas
sions ; and those same small, but not narrow lips,
given to thinking rather than talking. The visi
ble modesty, miy. shyness, is strikin; in rme
whose crown lay in his cradle. The virgin flush
which covered the temple of the heir apparent on
his entering the House of Lords does not disap
pear while fie is standing at the side of the grave
clerk who is reading the Constitution of Parlia
ment. In faltering accents and low voice the heir
apparent swears fidelity to the laws, and his hand
all but trembles while he kisses the Eible and
signs his name in confirmation of his oath. Put
he regains his composure as soon as this act has
been accomplished, and the procession has been
set in movement iigain. The long line of scarlet
robed peers, who have stood in a s-.micirele around
the table of the clerk, now move o towards the
woolsack, which has no sootier been reached,
when the Prince of Wales leaves the procession,
and with graceful steps ascends the royal dais,
seating himself in the armchair to the right of
the throne, and covering his head. Having

with the Lord Chancellor in a warm-hearted.
friendly manner. The most perfect grace of
mien and deportment distinguished the whole of
these movements, and before the mind has well
realized the historical scene, the heir appan nt
has joined once more the procession o peers, and
is leaing the hall on the or posite side.
I iiiding I'ault with Children.
It is at times necessary to censure and
iut very mucn more may oe uone ny encouraging
children when they do well. Jle, therefore, more
careful to express your approbation of good con
duct, than your disapprobation of bad. Nothing
can more discourage- a child titan a spirit of in
cessant fault-finding on the part of its parent.
And hardly anything can exert a more injurious
influence upon the disposition both of the parent
and child. There are two great motives influ
encing human action hope and fear. Poth of
these are at times necessary. Put who would
not prefer to have her chilu influenced to good
conduct by a desire of pleasing, rather than hy
the fear oi oil tiding? If a mother never expres
ses her gratification when her children do well,
and is always censuring them when she sees any
thing amiss, they are discouraged and unhaj j v.
liny feel that ic is useless to try to please.
Their dispositions become hardened and soured bv
this ceas. les iretting. and at last, finding wheth
er they d well or ill, they are tqually found
fault with, they relinquish all eH'oris to please,
and become heedless ol rcj roaches.
Put let a mother approve of her child's c n
duct whenever she can. L t her show that his
g iod behavior makes her sincerely haj pv. let
her reward him for his eflorts" to phase, bv
smiles and affection. In this way she will cher
ish in her child's h. art s -me of the nohh st and
most desirable feelings of our nature. She will
cultivate in i.i:n an amiable disposition and a
cite, riul spirit. Your child has been through
the day, very pleasant and obedient. Just be
fore putting him to sleep for the night, you taie
his hand and say, " My son you have been verv
good to-day. It makes me very harpy to see
yoti so kind and obedient. God loves'ci.ildren
who are dutiful to their parents, and he promises
to make tie-m happy." litis approbation from
his mother is to him a great reward. And when
with a more than affectionate tone you say,
44 Good night, my dear son," he leaves the room
with his little heart full of feeling. Au 1 when
he cl i.s..s his eyes for sleep, he is happy, and ic
eolves that he will always try to do his duty.

Keep Out of Slclii.
Nurse, cherish, never cavil away, the whole
some horror of Debt. Personal liberty is the
paramount essci.ti al to human dignity and hu
man happiness. Man hazards the condition and
loses the virtues of free;; an. in rrot-ortioii as be
acciu-t .ms his t:: ughts tj view, without anguish
and shame, his lapse into the bondage of debtor.
Debt is to xaan what the serpent is to the bird ;
its eye fiscinat s, its breath poisons, its coil
crushes siu--w ami bone, its jaw is the pitiless
grave. If you mock my illustration, if you
sneer at the truth it embodies, give yourself no
further trouble to learn how to manage your
money. (Aeidler yourself doomed; pass on
your way with a jaunty step ; the path is facile
j aths of Avernus always are. But, if, while 1
write, your heart, true to the instinct of man
hood, responds to my Words if you say 44 Agrcect;
that which you call the first rule for the man
agement of money, I hold yet more imperative
as the necessity to freedom and the life-si ring of
probity' then advance on your way, assured
that wherever it wind it must ascend. You see
but the temple of Honor ; close behind it is the
temple of Fortune. You will pass through the
one to the other."
44 But," sighs the irresolute youth whom the
eye of the serpent has already charmed, 44 it is
by no means so easy to keep out of debt as it is
to write warnings against getting into it."
Basy to keep out td' debt ! Certainly not.
Nothing in life worth an effort is easy. Do you
expect to know the first six books of Euclid" by
inspiration ? Could you get over the problem in
the first book, popularly called the Ass's Bridge,
without a sigh of fatigue? Can you look lulck
to the rudimental agonies of the Multiplication
Table and the Bule of Three without a lively
reminiscence of the moment in which you fairlv
gave in, and said, 44 This is too much for human
power?" Kvcn in things the pleasantest, if we
wish to succeed we must toil. We are all
Adam's children. Whatever we culture on
earth, till we win our way back into Eden, we
must earn by the sweat of our brow or the
sweat of our brain. Not even the Sybarite
was at ease on his rosebud even for him some
labor wis needful. No hand save his own could
uncrumple the rost leaf that chafed him. Each
object under the sun reflects a difficulty on the
earth." 44 Every hair," says the exquisite lib
lius Syrus, whose- fragments of old verse are
worth libraries of modern comedies 44 every
hair casts a shadow."
But think, O young man ! of the object I
place before you, and then be ashamed of your
self if you still sigh. 44 Easy to preach and not
easy to practice." I have no interest in the
preaching ; your interest is immense in the
practice. That object riot won, your heart has
no peace, and your hearth no security. Your
conscience itself leaves a door open night and
day to the tempter ; night and day to the ear of
a debtor, steal whispers that prompt to the deed
of a felon. Three years ago you admired the
rising success of some most respectable man.
Where is he now? In the dock in the jail in
the hulks? What! the opulent banker, whose
plate dazzled princes? or that flourishing clerk,
who drove the high-stepping horse to his office ?
The same. And his crime? Fraud and swind
ling. What demon could urge so respectable a
man to so shameful an act? 1 know not the
name of the demon, but the cause of the crime
the wretch tells you himself. Ask him ; what is
his answer? 44 I got into debt no way to get
out of it but the way which I took to the dock,
to the jail, to the hulks !"
IIovv to Grow Beautiful. Persons may out
grow disease and become healthy by proper
attention to the laws of their physical consti
tution. By moderate and daily exercise men
may become active and strong in limb and muscle.
But to grow beautiful, how? Age dims the
luster of the eye, and pales the roses on the
beauty's cheek ; while crowfeet, and furrows,
nn.l wrinkles., and lot. teeth, and Jray hairs-, and
haul head, and tottering luuos, and limping,
most sadly mar the human form divine. But
dim as the eye is, as pallid and sunken as may
he the lace of heautv, and frail and leehle that
once strong, erect and manly body, the immortal
soul, just fledging its wings for its home in
Heaven, may look out through those faded win
dows as beautiful as the tears that glisten in
affection's eye by growing kindly, by cultivat
ing sympathy with all human kind, by cherish
ing forbearance towards the follies and foibles of
our race, and feeding, day by day, on that love
to (hid and man which lifts us from the brute,
and makes us akin to angels. Dr. Hall.
