Casablanca, thc Second.
The boy Bat ou the pony's back,
As round the ring he Hod
Tko duat that fl9w up round the track
Fell thick upon his head.
Yet, beautiful and firm he stuck,
AR bora to ride wild ponies
A creature of uncommon pluck,
"A brick** among his cronies.
The mule ran on-he'd not let go,
Without his father's word
His father faintly crying, "whoa,"
Was smothered in the crowd.
The pony fast and faster flow,
With Jocko running after,
Bravees from the ero rvd they drew.
Convulsing all with laughter.
Jocko leaped with splendor wild,
Carrying his tail on high,
And sat behind the gallant child,
With mischief in his eye.
Tbore came a burst of loud applause
The boy-O I was he there ?
Ask of Jocko, who, with his paws,
Was combing Hiram's hair.
WHOSE WIFE WAS SHE!
In 17-, at Toulouse, there existed
between a Monsieur de Garran and
the family of Monsieur de la Faille
so great nn intimacy, that the worthy
gossips of the city predicted that a
marriage must inevitably result there?
from. Nor was tho rumor so ill
founded as such things sometimes
are. Monsieur de Garran, a captain
of artillery in a regiment then sta?
tioned at Toulouse, was a young and
handsome man, as much distinguish?
ed for his bravery in the field OE for
his proficiency in those accomplish?
ments which make tho charm of
social intercourse. Talented and
brilliant in conversation, his society
was .sought by all the best families of
Toulouse and its neighborhood; and
that fact alono was a certificate of his
unblemished descent, for in Tou?
louse, especially nt that time, four
generations of noble ancestors were
not considered sufficient to entitlo n
man to rank himself amongst the old
nobility. Monsieur do la Faillie was
one of the principal magistrates of
Toulouse. Timid and cautious by
temperament nud habit, he was, like
most persons of similar character,
immovable as a rock when he had
once formed a resolution; and his
birth, wealth and social position
made him as much respected as his
gentle ingratiating manners caused
him to be loved.
Ha was a widower with one child,
a daughter called Clemence, the
beauty of the city. Mademoiselle de
la Faille had so perfect a figure, that
that alone, even if united with a very
moderate amount of beauty of facer
must have made good her title to be
called a beautiful woman; but Cle?
mence had a face which left no
charm of expression, feature, or
complexion to be desired. It was
but natural that she and Monsieur
de Garran, both young, handsome
and agreeable, and both free in heart
and fancy, being constantly th own
together, should first bo attracted
towards each other, and after a time
find that their mutual attraction had
mergad into a deeper feeling; it was
so, and everything seemed for once
favorable-birth, fortune, position
and age, for French girls are married
young, and Clemence was fifteen,
while George de Garran was twenty
George was as welcome to the
father as the daughter, and assumed
all the rights of an accepted suitor.
All his leisure hours were spent
with Monsieur de la Faille and his
daughter; he was always their escort
in public, where the beanty of the
young pair attracted universal admi?
ration, and the marriage was looked
forward to by the citizens as a sort of
public festival, of which all augured
all manner of good. George had a
widowed mother residing in Paris,
and the only thing wanting to com?
plete his happiness, was the fact that
sho was still unacquainted with his
attachment. He had not the small?
est doubt of her consent, for he was
her only child, and his happiness
was her first object; but Monsieur de
la Faille placed great stress on the
importance of her formal approbn
bation of the union, and George,
having first deferred communicating
the affair to her until he should be
quite certain of his success with
Clemence and her father, had after?
wards chosen to delay acquainting
her with it until he could procure
leave of absence, and tell his story
in person. This leave was at length
obtained, and the happy lover, sure
of his future, took leavo of his be?
trothed and her father one evening,
with the understanding that he was
to leave Toulouse early next morn?
ing, and not to return until he
brought either the fullest tokens of
his'iuother's approval, or bo accom?
panied by herself, if health should
permit her to undertake the journey.
Full of joy and hope, Georgo return?
ed to his hotel, and there wan mot
by an urgent and peremptory order
to proceed without the delay of an
unnecessary hour with his regiment
Great was tho surprise of Clemence
and her father to see George re-ap?
pear next morning; tho girl read evil
tidings in his face before he had
time to utter a word, and when he
had spokon, the news fell like a
thunder-bolt on tho hearts of his hear?
ers. Clemence was like one distract?
ed, Georgo was himself too wretched
to make any attempt at consoling
her, and Monsieur de la Faille sat in
a state of stupor looking on at the
misery of his ohild and her lover,
and almost OB unhappy as they.
Some time passed thus, but George,
who ku ow that every moment waa
Srecioua, was tbe first to regain some
egree of self-possession, and pleaded
his cause with all tho eloquence of a'
full heart. He urged piteously for
an imrnndint.n marriage, and iliac his
wife should go with him, if she would
consent to such a sacrifice for his
sake; but Monsieur de la Faille, who
had by this time recovered the use of
his faoulties, gently but firmly si?
lenced Clemence's passionate assent
to this appeal, and would not for a
moment listen to a proposal whioh
wonld separate him so suddenly
from his only child, and send her,
so young and unexperienced, thou?
sands of leagues from her nntive
land, to a climate which was then be?
lieved to be nothing less than fatal,
and exposed to tho probability of
either being left a widow without
safety or protector, or of herself
dying so far from her father and her
friends. He would not hear George's
agonized entreaties, ami tho young
man was nt last compelled to seo that
this hope, at least, would never bo
realized; but as his despair was fertile
in expedients, his next preposition
wns that be should at once resign his
commission, and leave the army.
On this point the magistrate was
quite as decided as he had been on
the first. He argued that it wns
only tho temporary madness of a
young lover in tho first anguish of
disappointed hope-he would not
sanction any such step; aud, to
guarantee himself against seeming to
do so, he declared that if George
voluntarily forfeited his cireer, he
must also forfeit Clomeuce; he (Mon?
sieur de la Faille) would never con?
sent to incur such a responsibility in
the eyes of George's family, and he
was sure that iu the time to come,
George himself would be tho ilrst to
repent haviug yielded to such an
impulse. As a last hold on her
whom ho so dearly loved, George's
next idea was that ho should marry
Clemence, but that she should re?
main with her father until her hus?
band's return, which was expected to
take jil ace in two years at tho ut?
most. But hero also Monsieur de la
Faille was inflexible; he had in ado
up his mind to a course which he
behoved to be right, and no prnyers,
no arguments, could move him. He
represented to tho lovers that, being
both so young, two years were as
nothing in their lives; and, moreover,
this interval of absence would provo
whether their love for each other
were a deep, life-long sentiment, or
one of those ephemeral fancies which
end in indifference and even dislike.
In short, ho labored to convince
both himself and the lovers that this
separation was of all things the ono
he most desired.
George saw that his last hope had
failed like the others, and at length
ceased bis endeavors to overcome
Monsienr do la Faille's manifold
objections. As for Clemence, she
saw she could do nothing but suffer
and submit, and she tried to believe
that those miserable two years would
make her faithful love so much the
more dear and precious to her lover.
Monsieur de la Faille was no doubt
quite justified in making and ad?
hering to his resolution, but he was,
after all, a stupid man, and had
doubtless forgotten his own youth;
for it never entered into his imagina?
tion than those two unhappy beings
must have a thousand last words to
say to eaoh other, which must re?
main unsaid if ho remained there
and refused thom one lost parting
interview, where, alone with each
other, they might ask and receive the
last vows which would bo so much to
them in tho weary days of waiting
and absence. The worthy man had
not the least suspicion that he could
be in the way, and sat on, miserable
indeed at the misery be beheld, but
never dreaming of leaving them
George remaiued seated near Cle?
mence, choking with words which he
could not say to any ear but hers,
and gazing at her as those look who
feel that every look may be tho last.
The minutes passed too quickly; he
knew he must go, and he rose sud?
denly. In that instant, he forgot
the respect duo to the tyrannical
laws of good society in France; he
only felt that ho was leaving Cle?
mence, and that he could not go
without seeing her ulouo. As bc
bout to say "adieu" to ber, he whis
pered words which wore at once ii
prayer and a command.
"Meet me at miduigbt, in tho gar?
den," ho said.
She looked at him, startled and
reluctant, but that look was enough
she saw how ho suffered, aud in a voic<
a? low as bis: "I will bo there," sh<
If M. do la Faille bad had a grail
of penetration, he must have divined
from tho unhoped-for .tranquility o
their parting, that they meant to moe
again. He had tho intellect of tin
head and not of the heart, however
and he suspected nothing.
Night came, and tho lovers mot a
tho appointed time and place. Clu
menee came, half terrified at si
unusual a step, yet proud to be abl
to provo to George how dearly sh
loved him, by this one defiance of al
the laws which rule the lives o
French girls of her station; and ii
17- those laws had still more signifl
canoe than they now have. Bu
George bad had time to reflect. H
felt as though he should go mad, dh
anything oconr to prevent the meet?
ing; but at the same time he trem?
bled at having tempted his innocent
lovo to this aet; for he knew well that
Clemence would be ruined for his
sake in the opinion of the world, did
any bird of the air betray tim secret
of uer assignation with thim.
In silence they met, and, hand
clasped in hand, they for some time
forgot in the joy of being together
that they wore about to part. It was
a glorious night, a bright moon was
high in the heavens, and there was
no sound but the faint rustle of the
wind in tho long wreaths of honey?
suckle, which hung from the topmost
boughs of the old tree beneath which
It is needless to recapitulate thoir
sorrowful parting words. A thou?
sand times they swore to be faithful
forever through all the chances and
changes of life; they arranged to
think of each other, and pray togo
ther in spirit at certain hours of the
night and day, forgetting, poor souls!
that the day of one country would be
the night of the other.
The moment of parting carno, und
for the first time George pressed his
hps to those of his betrothed.
"Oh, George!" she said, "if I were
dead, your kisses would restore me
to lifo." And with these singular
words, destined to bo afterwards re?
membered, they separated.
Four years had passed from that
sorrowful night, when George, who
hud just landed at Brest, at once
took tho road to Paris, and arrived
at his mother's house there on the
5th of June, 17-. He had taken
caro to have her forewarned of his
arrival by somo frieuds, for she had
long mourned liim as dead. Im?
mediately eu his arrival in India, he
had been engaged in action, where
he hud beeu left for dead on the
field of battle, and his name had
been returned amongst tho killed;
but in point of fact he had been only
senseless from loss of blood, and
having been made prisoner, had re?
mained in captivity, without the
possibility of letting his friends
know his condition, and of course
being equally debarred from all homo
news, till au unforeseen chauco had
enabled him to escape.
