The pensive nnJ retiring beauty of Jouo,
while it attracted the ' attention of men, re"
pefled familiarity. , Several, nevertheless,
pleased tvith her grace and modesly, solicited
hef hand from her pirents. She persevered
in rpmniping "single and free,, possibly
through BQtnqu obscure.- presentiment which
wvned her that he would one day have to
give birth, ncit to a 'family, but a kingdom.
One of the suitors, more violent, had the
boldness to claim her love as of right, swear
ing before a court of justice, that she was be
trothed to him. .. Th poor girl, abashed but
indignant, appeared before the-Judges at
Tout, and contradicted by path this calumny
of, passion. The Judges saw through the
plot, and sent her home free.

standing at the window admiring the george

it is! Sister, is that the way God paints?"
Tlie idea was not new, that all the color's
are contained in every beniij of light, but it
was newly dressed. It was divested of its
philosophicvobes; and beautifully rested in
innocent and child-like drapery:- God paints

thereof. The table exhibits ten by ;collii"

and negligence, thirty-one from accident,
