FOR THE KEOWEE COURIER.
A Georgia Scenc,
At a certain time, not a hundred years
ngo ; at a certain placc, not a hundred miles
from this; in tho State of fleorgia?a State
famous for romance?where many a swain
lias immortalized himself by his exploits in
vanquishing the object of his love, and ultimately
foiled all attempts on tho part of
her incorrigible parents to cut off all intercourse,
the following amusing and interesting
scene occurred :
A youth, whom wo shall denominate
Jonathan Doomttt.r. lm<l b?*nmn I
ten by a beautiful lass by the nameofSAi.lik
Si.idr.n, daughter of old JacohSmdku,
a worthy planter, whose extensive domains,
as well as Sam.ik's smiles, formed a subject
of sober thought in the pensive hours
of our hero.
Jonathan's visits had become alarmingly
frequent, when old Jacoii, for reasons
unknown to us, gave liiin to understand that
his presence was not pleasant, and that he
must eeasR his visits. Things had perhaps
progressed farther than the old man was
aware; at all events there was an attachment
between Saij.ik and .Tomatuw
no trifling nature. They, therefore, nought
every opportunity of bcin , in each other's
company. Whenever absence was contemplated
by the oUl folks, Sallik, by dint of
the art peculiar to her sex, would find means
of communicating the intelligence to Jonathan,
who like a true lover, as ho was,
would seek the society of the fair one in a.<
expeditious a manner as his locomotive,
vulgarly called logs, would admit.
On a certain occasion, an absence from
home was contemplated and carried into
execution by papa and mamma. Sat,t,ik
WiW on the nlert to convey the glad tidings
to Jonathan, who, ill his torn, gladly em
urnccu tnc opportunity of wending his way I
to old Jacob's doinicil, where light and
sunshine prevailed, and not a vestige of
gloom was visible, save that which remained
on Sai.hv.'s brow, occasioned by the
mandates of, as .-he thought, a cruel father.
All this was soon dispersed by means of
Jonathan's loquacity and suavity of manners.
Their cup of joy scemM to bo full,
ami little did they think their peace was so
soon to be marred.
A youth passed by, and, seeing Jonathan
surrounded with so much happiness,
in an alarming proximity of crinoline, actuated
too, perhaps, by a spirit of jealousy,
p.nd no doubt posted up as to the old man's
whims, hastened with all possible speed to
inform him pf the state of affairs at the old
homestead. .Such intelligence no doubt
imparted new vigor in the old man's veins,

his own premises. His arrival was ns unexpected
as sudden by the linppy couple.
They were in a "fix." What was to he
done. Sam*ik, whoso presence of mind
did not forsake her in this trying hour,
with all !?? coolness of a heroine, bid Jonathan
conceal himself in the closet where
lie could remain undisturbed until supper
time, when sho could devise some means to
effect his escape, while tho family were at
supper. No quicker said than dnnrt .Tnv.
ati!an was safely stowed with other articles
of comfort, such as sugar, Masses, <fcc.
And, when the old man entorcd, Safj-ik
was composedly attending to domestic du
tics, leaving the old man to infer that Jonathan
had taken his exit.
The time that intervened from the old
man's advent until the supper hour was irkHonte
to Jonathan, and Sai.i.ik was busily
employed in cogitating the plan of his
i AVlion supper was announced, there was
