with a perfeot coolness and nnenncern that
gave me great uiicaiinisa. Sometimes I ihougbt
she rememheted my early impertinence, and
was do-posed to punish me. Hut there was a
rival, a cousin of Grace's, who alwaysstood in
my way, and from whom grace received, as a
mailer of conr-e, ITumtierle.'.s little attentions,
which. I .dared not even offer. 1 haled this
man, I wbs insufferably j-aloiis. but Grace
seemed en her perfectly unconscious, or per-
lectly indiiierent to the by nlav or animosity
wtiich was crtied on between us.
Grace, sweet, m ble Groce, with her chi d-
like s niplicny and ffnsinve woman's hesrt
who could reisit her I I could not, my whole
soul wa- ht-rs. In vain had I colled upon my
vanity, of which 1 had plenty to invoke, to
save me from the nior'.ifiuaiinn of loving with
out return. I could not smother orconirol
the passion which, strong as a mighty whirl
wind had seized me.
One evening I sat by the pinno while Grace
sang lo me. Tiiecotisin was not there; nnd
dear Grace's varying color suggested serl
hopes to my vanity, i fancied 1 saw love in
those soft music breathing lips. -
It was the last evening ol my vacsiinn, and

She lif.ed her large soft eyes, and said slow

"I know it."
She was gone before I hod time lo prevent

never absent from my thouifhls; she had be

however, and study hard, and' st the end of
the term passed examination wiih high hon

I determined to be wiser w-IkH I saw her
again to discover byoud a doub!, if 1 were

done by foolish rpeeches.
In order o grnilly a little pique, when I re

The Yankee's Christmas Visit.
The day proceeding Christmas a 'green 'un
green from heod to foot was seen rushing
up Washington street, with his bands thrust
into his pockets. In passing Jones, Sbreves dr.
Brown's, be was suddenly brought up !o a
stand by the brilliancy of jewelry aispisyed in
"Tariiaiion seize me, ef them rings han't
handsome enough for my Sail! Dang it ef 1
din't, fifre, buy the hoop what'll do for Sail's
finger when we're hitched, next plantin time,
by Parson Crout."
Upon this determination, our verdant step
ped into the magnificent store, and walked up
to the show case, of diamond jewelry, at t be-
some moment, relieving his hands from their
prison, pointed to the most expensive ring
within his vision worth at leart five hundred
"What'll you tako for that are V said the
What will you give!" responded Mr.
Jones, understanding the customer he bad to j
"Dang It ef I know guess 'bout ninety-Eve
cents is all dad would allow me to gin, as he
sold himself short of apple sass lew git the
tin tew pay my way up lew Uostin3
"Cannot efioid Ihe ling lor that money it
cost me twice as much as you offer," said Mr.
"Yoeu git otll-danr itef I'll be cheated
anyhow; but Sail must have the ring. i.uiT i
the hoop out here, an' let a feller kersemine
At this gentle request, Mr. Jones removed
the ting from its rich cue, and htld it towaid
the Yankee, wh was evidently determined
upon a purchase.
"Neow, I lell yeou wot it is, Mi. I csn'l
gin all creation lor ball's weddin' ring, cos I
got lew git the beddin' an' other fix in t ; but
ef ye' 11 take ninety-five cents for the tornal
bright letle cri'ter, I'll tuk it right off your
hans, and you'll hev the fun uv giltin' rid uv
one of your hoops, an' tiie money fer it tew,
right in yer fist."
Al this last generous proposition, Mr. Jouet
took Die ring as il to do il up for his customer.
Al the same instant, Ihe thought flashed
cross the mind of Ihe Yankee that be was
paying 'too dear lor the whistle.'
' 'Tan't bruck nur nulhm' an' Ihem lilile
glass binds what druv inter the top won't
come out nor nulhin', Mr ?"
"1 don't warrant It, my frieud," replied Mr.
"Thunder ef I don't see Sail bust afore I'd
buy a hoop ler her what don't come warrant

hat an aJdilionnl alap, and walked oat ofthe

The name and character of Mr, Fimmose

opposed by the Abolitionists. He not only
signed the 'Fugitive-slave law," but he vigor

In this lotcighii aud domestic policy, aside

Irauds and peculations were commuted upon

his tone toward those naiiuus which had insul

Mr. Fillmore was born in 1300, in Cayuga
Couiuy, N. Y., and is, therefore, fifty-six
years ol age. He was (or a number of years a

by ihe rtnti Masons, then predominant in
Western New York, where Ihe Ex P esident
resides. In 1831 he was elecloj to Congress
from ibe Lull'.ilu I) is. net, and served three or

position iu his party thai he was placed at the
head of the Committee of Ways and Means
