Description of si First Love.
FBOSI BEAUMONT AND VLEI GUEE.
What can bo moro passionate, yet tender
and maidenly withal, than thia description
of a tirst love from ono of the plays of Beau?
mont and Fletcher. Let the reader com?
pare it with Desdemona's confession of ber
affection for tho Moor in Shakspeare's
"My father oft would speak
Your worth and virtue, and as I did grow
Moro and more apprehensive, I did thirst
To sec the man so praised; but yet all this
"Was but a maiden longing, to bo lost
As soon as found, till sitting in my window,
Printing ?ny thoughts m lawn, I saw a god,
I thought, (but it was von.) enter our gates.
My blood Hew out and back again as fast
As I had puffed it forth, ami sucked it in
Like breath. Theu was I called away m
To entertain von. Never was a man
Heaved from a shecp-sote to a sceptre,
So high in thought as I. You left a kies
Upon these lips then, which I mean to keep
From yon forever. I did hear you talk
Far above singing.- After you were gone,
I grow acquainted with my heart, and
searched . .
What stirred it so: alas! I found it*-love.
THE CASTLE OX THE RIILVE.
BT FRANCIS A. DriUVAGE.
Tu one of those old fondai castles
which, perched like eagle nests, upon
picturesque hills that overhang;
'.Thc wide and winding Rhine,"
and with their mumbling and ivy
grown towers, arrest the eyes of the
delighted traveler, as he views them
from the deck of thc gliding steamer,
there dwelt, some years ago, the
Baron Von Rosenburg and his lady
Mathilde. Tin? baron was a very
proud man, and continually boasting
of his descent from a 'dong and noble
line of martial ancestors," gentlemen ,
who were -wont, in the "good old
times," to wear steel on head, back
and breast, and each cf -whom sup?
ported a score of retainers in his
feudal castle. Where the money comes
from to supporta princely housekeep?
ing, -when the head of a family has no
property or employment, is sometimes
a mystery now-a-days; but no such
doubt attached to the resources of the
baron's ancestors. These gentlemen,
when short of provisions, would sally
forth at the head of their followers,
and capture tho first drove of cattle
they encountered, without stopping to
inquire into the ownership. Some?
times they made excursions on the
river, and levied contributions on the
little barks of traders, who often car?
ried valuable cargoes from one lihine
towu to another.
But the privileges of the robber
knights and bandit nobles were sadly
shorn by the xn-ogressive spirit of
modern civilization. With a total dis?
regard of the immunities of chivalry,
modern legislators declared that it was
as great, crime for a baron to seize on
a herd of cattle as for a peasant to
steal a sheep. Hence the great fami?
lies along the Rhine went into decay.
Tho castles were dismantled, many
noble names died cut, very fewr r?
maincd, the representatives of the
ancestral glory of olden time?.
Among them was the baron. He
had been a soldier and courtier in his
youth, had spent some time abroad,
and waj about forty when he married
a lady of the same age, and settled
down in the old family castle of llo
senburg. Herc he lorded it over the
surrounding valley, the simple inhabi?
tants of which, though exempt from
all obligations, yet in sonic sort re?
garded themselves as vassals of the
baron. They made him presents of
tfish, accompanied him to the chase,
and lent him a willing hand whenever
he roquired assistance at tho castle.
The baron, though he had the
wherewithal to live comfortably
enough, was yet a poor representative
of the race he sprang from. His
army consisted of a few farm-ser?
vants, his cavalry of a plough-boy on
a cart-hors?, and his navy of a fishing
boat. But. on the whole, he was
happy. He passed his days either in
trimming his vines or hunting, and
his evenings in poring over mildewed
parchments or books of Heraldry,
hunting up long pedigrees, and puf?
fing a monstrous meerschaum till the
atmosphere was as dense as the Inte?
rior of a smoke-house. The lady
Mathilde embroidered from morning
They had, however, a common
source of grief. Fate had not blessed
them with children. The lady yearned
for the companionship of a daughter;
the baron mourned at the prospect of
the extinction of his name for tho
want of a male heir.
It was whilo pondering on this sub?
ject one day, as they were strolling ont
together, that the baron and his lady
came upon the cottage of tn old sol?
dier, named Karl Mueller, who culti?
vated a little vineyard not far from the
The old man was seated on a bench
before his door smoking, and so deeply
plunged in revery that -he was not
aware of visitors till the baron, touched
him on the shoulder.
,"In a brown, study. Karl?" said the
"I have enongh to think about,"
returned the soldier. "I'm getting
old, and one thing troubles mc."
"What's that, my good fellow?"
"Why, you see, baron, I'm not
"No, sir; I-have-I have a little
"I never knew you were married,
"Nor was I, your honor. For I
always thought an ' antry soldier
ought kr be in marching order, and
never have more baggage than ho
I could carry in his knapsack. No, no;
the ohihl is?nou? of mine."
j "But it is related to you," said the
"It is my grandchild, madame," re?
plied the soldier, fixing his eyes on the
lady; "and the child of as brave a man
as ever faced thc lire of tho enemy.
He might have been a field marshal
for the matter of that. I saw him at
Oberstadt, when the hussar went down
to charge the enemy's light cavalry.
Faith, madame, they made daylight
shine through their ranks. Their
curved sabres cut them up as the sickle
does tho cern. I saw him, the girl's
father, madame, go into the affair with
the hussars; but he came not out safe.
It was pitiful to see his Uniterm all
dabbled with blood, as he lay on the
.ground, and to see his pale lips quiv?
ering as he prayed for water. I gave
him the last drop in my canteen, and
swore I'd protect the child."
The baroness, whose eyes were
filled with tears, turned to her hus?
band and asked:
".Shall we not give a shelter to the
child of a brave man?"
The baron nodded, and tho propo?
sal was accepted by Karl, who retired
into his cottage, and immediately re?
appeared, bringing forth a beautiful
girl of ten, with fair hair and blue
eyes, and a form of graceful symme?
"A girl ! nonsense !" said the. baron
in a tone of disappointment. But tin
baroness folded the child in her anni
with rapture. The child responded
to the caresses of the lude, with equa
So the little Adelaide was soon do
mesticated in the castle, which Lei
frolic spirit filled with gayety. Tin
baroness renewed her youth in gazin?:
upon hers, and the baron never scoldei
her, even when she took the pipe on
of his mouth, or rummaged among hi
As she grew up to womanhood sin
became more serious and thoughtful
She was anxious to learn every thin j
touching her father, but on this sub
ject the baroness could give her n<
information^ and Karl, lier grand
father, seemed equally averse to .speak
ing of it. When hard pressed h
promised to speak out at sonic futur
One day she was summoned in grea
haste to the cottage of old Karl. Th
old man had suddenly been taken il
and required the presence of his gran
daughter, lt was evident at a glam
that he was on his death-bed.
"Adelaide," said he "forgive m
before I die, that 1 may die in peace.
"Forgive you, dear grandfather
Am I not deeply indebted to you ?"
"1 should have reposed more cont
dence in you. I should have spoke
to you about your parents."
"My father ?" asked Adelaide.
"Was a brave and good man. Bi

Here a spasm interrupted his utte
ance, and he lay huck on his pillow
gasping for- breath. After a bri
space he seemed to revive again, ai
made strong efforts to express bimse!
but his breath felled him. He m
tioned to Adelaide to fetch him wr
ing materials, and while she heb1,

he essayed with feeble lingers to tra
a sentence with a pen. But the rap
approach of death foiled all his c
delivers to communicate a secret th
evidently lay close to his heart, ai
while the young girl bent over him
an agony of grief he gently sigh
away his last. The baron and barone
found their protege an hour afterwar
still sorrowing by the bedside of th?
early friend and protector. Wi
gentle violence they removed her frc
tho chamber of death and took 1
home to the castle, where they ga
directions to tho proper persons
take charge of tho old soldier's :
mains and inter them with that dee?
respect which was due to his char;
ter and station. Among his effe<
was found a will, in which he mu
Adelaide his heiress, bequeathing
her Ids little landed estate and a sm
sum in gold, the produce of his t
and frugality. This eveut cast a gio?
over the spirits of the young muid'
from which, however, lier- religious
persuasions, the attention of her
friends, arrid thc elnsticity of her youth,
eventually relieved her.
The old castle on the Rhine was
gay once more, when Rodolph Ihn- I
stein, aN nephew of the baron, a gay
young captain of hussars, whose jral
lantry and beauty had given him. a re?
putation at Vienna, came to pay a
long visit to his uncle. Ho wat: a
high-spirited and aoomplished yoking
man, had served with distinction, was
a devoted admirer of the ladies, ?n d
ono of those military Adonises wh o
are bom to conquest. Ho. was charm -
ed to find domesticated beneath tbn
old roof tree so fair and loveable a
girl ms Adelaide, and of course did his
best to render his society agreeable to
her. Ho ?mg to her songs of his own.
writing to airs of his own composition,
accompanied on Ivis guitar; he told her ,
tides of strange lands that he had visit- ;
ed; of -cavalry shirniish.es in which he
had participated; sketched her favor?
ite scones in pencil, and offered to
teach her the newest dance in vogue
at Vienna. He was a dangerous com?
panion to a young girl whose imagina?
tion needed but a spark to kindle W,
and for a timo she indulged in the
wild hope that she had made a con?
quest of Rudolph, But then her rea?
son told her that even if he loved her,
it would be impossible for a yeing
niau of family to offe? his hand to
an almost portionless girl, about
whoso origin a voil of mystery seemed
wrapped. Tho names of her parents,
even, had never been disclosed to her
hythe lips of probably the only man
who knew her history, ami those lips
wore now cold and mute in death.
Hence the little gleam of sunshine
which had for a moment penetrated
her heart, was speedily quenched in a
deeper darkness than that which reign?
ed iir it before, and she could not help
viewing thc visit of Rudolph as au
