Boston, the Athens of America, the
Yankee city, the city of Notions most of
my Teaders doubtless know from personal
observation, to be thus appropriately na
med. The first title, sho well mcrite in
consideration of the liberal encouragement
of literature and the fine arts, the second
too, for the peculiar 'genius and character
of her population, and thoush wc may
look upon the backwoodsman of New Eng
land as the real specimen of the Yankee,
the native Bostouiari is the acknowledged
representative of the ; tribe (if I may so
speak) abroad ; and the third title is mer
ited from the fact of the never-tiring in
ventive genius of its inhabitants. Pos
sessing a population of nearly an hundred
and twenty thousand, she is yet free in a
great measure, .compared with her sister
cities in the Union, from the horde of vices
and evil customs that prevail at the South
and West. The gambler here accomplish
es his purpose in secret; there are no pub
lic billiard rooms, no' masquerade balls, or
resorts of infamy, and though ull these
evils exist in a greater or less degree as in
all largely populated places, yet are they
bo hidden as not to come before the eye of
innocence, or tempt those who do not take
the preliminary steps to vice.
Boston, courteous reader, the Yankee
city of Massachusetts Bay, shall be the
locale of our tale. . There is a portion of
tho West part of the town here as in Lon
don, occupied by the more opulent of the
inhabitants, being in the immediate neigh
borhood of the noble park, or Common as
x it is called, which is unsurpassed in extent
and beauty by an grounds of a similar
character in the country. Within its iron
enolosure, there is room for the famed
park of New York city, and the battery
attached, and you might throw in a few of
the largest squares that ornament the Qua
ker city of brotherly love, and yet find
room for the silvery lake that now orna
ments its centre, and plenty of space for
promenading. The vicinity is the aristo
cratic section of the city. You will not
find this spirit of prido or aristocracy to
consist of the same ingredients as consti
tutes that grado of society in the old coun
try; there, birth almost alone establishes
the claim to distinction, while here, that
most potent agent, money, is all powerful.
Ah, in this boasted free country, gold is
tho lovelier of all ranks, forming for itself
a Kingdom fitim out a Republic, which it
"rules with a rod of iron, though in this
Yankee city, genius and intellect are far
more readily appreciated than in other
parts of the State. ' "?
: It was a cold winter's night, and the
wind whistled shrill through tho bare
limbs of the giant trees .that linecKthej
Mall. The ground was covered with snow
upon whose sparkling surface the light of
the moon fell with dazzling splendorf stud
dingthe encrusted grwnd with brilliant
diamonds. As the old Suth clock1 struck
. nine, a young man closo wrapped in his
cloak, bought the shade ot one of the faigo
trees in the park, from whence he watched
the coming of numerous carriage loao's of
gaily dressed pooplo of both scxcsiio en
tered one of the princely houoin Boacon
street. Through theriohly stained glass
windows, the gorgeous light issued in a
eteady flood, accompanied by the thrilling
tones of music from a full band; the house
illuminated at every point seemed crowded
with gay and happy spirits. The stranger
still contemplated -this scono his cloak,
which until now, had enveloped tho lower
part of his fcaturcsad fallen, discovering
a face of striking-manly boauty; a full dark
eye with arching trows, and short curling
hair as dark as the raven's plumrgc, set off
to great' advantage his Grecian style of
feature a becoming moustathe curled
abcut. hitf ,'nouth, giving a decided and
classical appearance to the whole face.
The Naval button upon his cap showed
ilm to belong to that branch of our Na
tional defencV -
'SSfccJl I enter," said he thoughtfully to
Meelilg foimtal, : geWcli to American Interns, fiterato, Stitnte, niA
himself, "and feast my eyes upon charms
I can never possess? Hard fate that I
should bo so bound by the iron chains of
low birth and poverty. Yet am I a man,
and have a soul as noble as the best of
them. We will see," he said, and cross
ing over to the gay scene, ho entered the
hall. He cast off his overshoes, handed
his cloak and cap to a servant, and, unan
nounced, mingled with tho beauty and
fashion that thronged tho rooms. Grad
ually making his way among the crowd, he
sought a group in whose centre stood a
bright and beautiful being, the queen in
loveliness of that brilliant assembly. The
"bloods" of the west end thronged about
her, seeking for an approving glance from
those dreamy blue eyes; half abstracted
sho answered or spoke upon tho topics of
conversation without apparent interest.
Suddenly, she started, and blushing deep
ly, dropped a half courtcsey in token of
recognition to some one without tho group.
Her eyes no longer languid, now sparkled
with animation, and as our naval friend
entered the group about her, she laid her
tiny gloved hand within his, saying, .
"Welcome, Ferris, we feared your sail
ing orders had taken you to sea this bleak
"We should not have lifted anchor with
out first paying tribute to our queen," was
tho gallant reply.
A titter ran through the circle ofexclu-
sives, at his appearance among them, but
when tho lady approved there was no room
"Curse his familiarity," said one young
fellow to another, "what pretensions can
he have here V
"And Miss II called him by his
given name too" said another, "rather fa
miliar that," wonder what the old man
would say to it?"
"What scene does that painting repre
sent 1" enquired a lady friend at this mo
mont, of Anne II .
"I think it is an Italian picture," repli
ed tho fair girl.
. "Spanish, I should say," observed he
who first questioned the appearauco of
"Evidently Spanish," said another ex
quisite, "though I regret to differ from
Miss II ."
"You err," said Ferris, turning to tho
two gentlemen, "the lady is right. It is
an Italian scene as you will discover by a
closer examination of tho costume of tho

umpire in this caso," retorted one of those
who had prononncod tho piece to bo a
"I contend that you are wrong" said the
other, seeking some causo tor dittercnce,
and desiring to "show up" the unpretend
"Pardon me ladies," said Ferris taking
no notice of the insult from the speakers,
"I saw that painting in tho studio of Isola
at Genoa, a few years since, and know
from its author that it represents a street
scene of that Italian city, othcrwiso I
should not have spoken."
"Ah ! you have great advantage over us
all, in having travelled so extensively Mr.
Harvard," said Anno II desirous to
restore good feeling.
The gay scenes of the night wore on,
several times had Ferris Harvard com
pletely put at fault tho shallow-brained
fops about him, placing them in anything
but an enviable light, whilo tho eloquent
eyes of the princely creature ho loved,
told him that at least he was not indiffer
ent to her.
Ferris Harvard was a Lieutenant in the
Navy, and depended entirely upon his pay
as an officer to support a widowed mother
and. younger sister, to both of whom he.
was devotedly attached. His father, a
self-mado man, had once been a successful
merchant, who sailed and freighted some
of the heaviest tonned vessels that left the
port of Boston, but misfortune and sick
ness overtook him, and he sunk into his
grave, leaving his only son to protect his
mother and sister from the wants and ills
of life. Ferris had enjoyed a liberal edu
cation, and having entered the navy as a
midshipman, had rison in the shortest pos
sible time to ft lieutenanoy,' by reason of
nis superior acquirements anu goou con
ductf His 'profession had ld him to all
8TEDBENVILLE, THURSDAY, JANUARY 11, 1855,
parts of the world, and he had carefully
improved his advantages though con
strained by reason of his limited means to
the practice of tho most rigid economy.
He had met with tho only daughter of
Harris II , one of the most wealthy
and aristocratic citizens of Boston, at a fete
given on board the ship to which ho be
longed, and had immediately become en
amored of her, but he well knew in his
own heart that the difference in their for
tunes formed an insurmountable barrier to
his wishes. He had been a casual visitor
for several months subsequent to tho time
our story commences, at tjjo house of the
II family. He had neijcr told his
love to Anne in words, but his soul had
constantly spoken through his eyes, and
tho reader knows the response.
"I must think of her no more," said Fer
ris to himself, "if I am thus sneered at by
her friends for merely offering her ordinary
civilities, with what contempt would hem
austere parent receive a proposition for
her hand, from one so poor and unknown ?i'
Harris II was indeed a stern old
man, and yet he was said to be kind to the
poor, giving freely of his bounty for the
relief of the needy. Still was he a strange
man ; he seldom spoke to those about him,
yet he evinced the warmest lovo for his
only child, and Anno too loved her father
with an ardent affection. His delight was
to pore over his library, living as it were
in the fellowship of tho old Philosophers.
On several occasions, when Ferris was at
his house and engaged in conversation
with Anne, he had observed tho old man's
eye bent sternly upon him, when his heart
would sink within hiiu and he would awako
to a reality of his situation.
Ferris was one evening in Beacon st. at
the house of Mr. II , where, spito of
tho cold reception he received from those
he generally met there, ho still enjoyed
himself in the belief that Anne was not
indifferent as to his regard. Ho had beeu
relating to her by her request, his experi
ence with different .national characters
with whom he had met, speaking of their
peculiarities, and describing tho various
scenic effects of different countries. Anne
sat near a sweet scented geranium whose
leaves she was most industriously engaged
in destroying. As there occurred a pause
in tho conversation, Ferris bending closo
to her ear, said,
"Anno, will you pluck me that rose as
a token of affection, you must know how
ardent is mine for you," or stop, dearest,
behind it blows the Candy Tuft, you know
the mystio lauguago of both will you
choose and give me one?"
"Hush ! Hush ! Ferris," said the blush
ing, trembling girl, handing him tho rose.
This passed at a moment when the at
tention of the company present was drawn
to some engaging object. Never before
had Ferris received any evidence of Anne's
lovo, save from her tell-tale eyes. The
flower was placed next to his heart, and he
left tho apartment. He had proceeded
but a few steps from tho house- when he
was accosted by a poor mendicant clothed
in rags, who was exposed at that lute hour
of the night to the inclemency of the sea
season. "Pray, sir," said the beggar to Ferris,
"can you give mo a tnno hm nearly
starved and chilled through by this night
Ferris after a few moments conversation
with tho beggar, for his was not tho heart
to turn away from tho sufferings of a fel
low creature, was convinced of his worthi
ness, and handing him his purse contain
ing five or six dollars, he urged him to
seek immediate shelter and food. The
beggar blessed him and passed on.
A few nights subsequent to this, the oc
casion on which Ferris had received from
Anno, an acknowledgment of her affection
for him, in tho beautiful language of Flo
ra's Kingdom, ho was again at her father's
houso. Mrs. H-
Anuo's mother re
ceived him as sho did most of her compa
ny, with a somewhat constrained and dis
tant welcome Being a woman of no con
versational powers, sho always retired
early, conducting her converse with soci
ety in tho most formal manner. Ferris
was much surprised that Mr. II had
taken no particular notico of his intimacy
at his house, for he very seldom saw him,
and when he did so, he would see the old
man's eyes bent"stcrnlfupon him in any
thing but a friendly or" mvitiug spirit. In
this dilemma he was at a loss what course
to pursue ; heretofore he had despaired of
ever saining; Anne's acknowledgment of
affection for him, and now that he had so
happily succeeded in this object, ho was
equally distant from tho goal of his happi
ness, for his better judgment told him
that the consent of her parents to their
union could never be obtained. On this
occasion he had taken his leave as usual,
when ho was met by tho beggar of the
former night, who again solieited alms, de
claring that ho could find no other to assist
him, and that tho money he had before
bestowed upon him, had been expended
for food and rent of a miserable cellar
where ho lodged. .
Again Ferns placed his purse iu the
poor man's hands, at the same time telling
him that he was himself poor and constrain
ed to the practice of rigid economy in the
support of those dependent upon him.
Iljleft tho beggar and passed on his way,
happy in having contributed to the allevi
ation of human suffering.
Noong subsequent to this, Ferris call
ing oue.cvening at the house of Mr. II
fortunately found Anne and her father
alone, the former engaged upon a piece of
embroidery, of a new pattern, and tho lat
ter poring over a volume of ancient philos
ophy. On his entrance, the old gentle
man took no further apparent notice of
him than an inclination of the head and a
"good evening, sir." He took a chair by
Auno's side and told her of Tils love in
low but ardent tones, begging of her per
mission to speak to her father upon the

the room where Mr. II sat, and after
a few introductory remarks,' said,
"You have doubtless observed, sir, my
intimacy in your family for moro than a
year past, and must have ascribed it to
some motive, from the fact that you have
not objected to my attentions to your
daughter, I have been led to hope that it
might not bo wholly against your wishes.
May I ask, sir, with duo respect, your
opinion in the matter?"
'I have often seen you hero" replied
"and have found no reason to
object to your visits, sir."
"Iudecd sir, you are very kind, I have
neither fortune nor high rank to offer your
daughter, but still, emboldened by ardent
love, I now ask you for her hand."
The old gentleman laid by his book, and
removing his spectacles, asked,
"Does the lady sanctiou this request ?"
"Have you thought well of your propo
sal?" "I have;"
"And you ask ?"
"Your daughter's hand."
"' It is yours," said tho old man.
Ferris sprang astonished to his feet say
ing, " I hardly know how to receive your
kindness sir, I had looked for different
" Listen, young man," said tho father.
" Do you think I should have allowed you
to become intimate in my family without
first knowing your character? Do you
think I should have given you this pro
cious child (and as ho spoko he placed
her hand in Ferris') to you beforo I had
proved you? No sir, out of Annie's ma

in an extacy of joy at this unexpected hap.

and thicken the plot ?" said Ferris to his
At this moment the door opened, and
the old beggar whom Ferris had twico ro.
leived, entered tho apartment. Stepping
up to Ferris ho solicited charity. Annie
recoiled at first at tho dejected appearance
and poverty-stricken looks of tho intruder,
whilo Ferris asked in astonishment, how
ho had gained an entrance into the house.
In a moment the figure rose to a stately
height, and casting off the disguise it had
worn, discovered tho person of Annie's fa
The astonishment of the lovers can hard
ly bo conceived.
."I determined," said tho father, ad
dressing Ferris, "after I had otherwise
proved your character, to test one virtue,
which of all others is tho greatest. Chari

contained five dollars which is now also
multiplied by thousands. Nay," said the
old man, as Ferris was about to Rpcak,
" there is no need of explanation, it is a
fair business transaction."
This was of course, all a mystery to An
nie, but when explained added still more
to her love for her future husband.
Ferris and Annie were soon married,
and one stately mansion on Beacon street,
still serves for a home for mother, sister,
wife and all. Gossip said (and gossip said
truely for once) that old Mr. II., having
money enough, had not sought to add
more to the fortune he should leave his
child, by forming for her an alliance with
gold, but had sought and found what was
far more valuable, truo merit.

Jenny's New Year's Sleigh Eide.
BY E. W. DEAVEKS.
Everybody said young Blackwood was
in love with pretty Jenny Lea. So, also,
said his long continued, particular atten
tions so said his manner so said his
eyes, but so did not say his tongue.
It was very provoking, for he had eve
ry reason to hope. Jenny's shy, pretty
manner, told him almost as plainly as words
" Speak, and I am yours for asking."
But Mr. Blackwood did not speak, and
what was worse, dog-in-thc-manger-likc,
ho kept others away from what he did not
seem to be disposed to enjoy himself.
His brow would grow black as a thunder
cloud, did any other young man so much
as dare to speak to his Jennv for anv-
ono but himself to ask her to dance, was
an unheard of temerity. He arrogated to
himself, tho exclusive right of waiting up
on her of directing her yes, sometimes
of scolding her.
Yet with all this assumption of supre
macy, my lord had never deincd to declare
his love never offered his hand ; no en
gagement whatever existed between them.
Every ono thought it strange, and Jenny
pouted a little, and in her inmost heart,
thought so too.
Now Jenny had plenty of spirit in gen
eral, and this mado it all the moro vexa
tious, that sho should bo so mookly tame
and patient in this particular case. It was
annoying to a looker-on, to sco her so im
posed upon, and lorded over by ono who
had not tho shadow of a right to control
The fact is and I may as well confess
it tho poor littlo thing was so much in
love, that sho did not know how to man
age at all. .' '
So things went on, and so pcrhap., they
might have been going on to this day, but
all at once I know not whether from
some hint from a friend, or that Jen
ny's native spirit was at last aroused cer
tain it is, that a great and notable change
came over her manner.
A charming sleighing excursion had
been projected for the approaching New
Years' day. About ten gentlemen, and
as many ladies, were to make up the party.
They were to ride about fifteen miles into
tho country havo a supper and a dance,
and then return to tho city by moonlight.
As each gcutlcinan was to provide his own
vehicle, and take a lady, there was an ea
ger competition for tho honor of escorting
favorite belles. Young Blackwood, with
his usual nonchalence, Was in no haste to
secure Jenny's companionship, but in his
own good timo condescended to say to her,
"Jenny you will ride with me, of
" Thank you," said Jenny, " but Mr.
Collins has already been so kind as to ask
"Eh? what?" cried Blackwood, start
ing, and scarcely believing that he heard
aright" you dou't mean that you are go
ing with him ?"
Young Blackwood turned on hisj heel,
and walked away. He felt himself an in
digfcadt and ill used man. The shocking
bad temper into which he fell was far from
being sweetened by finding iu his dilato
rincss that ho had procured the honor of es
corting a young lady, rrof tlij, doubtless,'
but somewhat faded, and very silly the
last choice of all who were to be of the
New Year's day arrived, bright and
propitious, the snow in excellent order for
It had been arranged that the whol
party should assemble at a certain rendez
vous, so as to set out together, and as the
appointed timo approached, one gay sleigh
after another, might be seen whirling to
the spot. The prancing horses, covered
with silver bells the bells' merry jingle
the various colors of the ladies' plaids and
dresses the rich fur robes, with their
white linings, and better still, the joyous,
rosy faces, and the sound of ringing laugh
ter, made up an inspiriting and brilliant
One countenance only, looked out of
keeping with the gay occasion. It was
our poor Blackwood's, as ho sat gloomy
and taciturn beside his elderly companion.
His eye glanced furtively towards Mr.
Collins' sleigh ; he saw Jenny's face, bright
and fresh as a rose ho heard her gaily
laugh at somo witticism of hor companion,
ho saw' that componion's glance of admira
tion, and ho grew ten times more gloomy
and taciturn than before. I am afraid
poor Miss Moody found him very dull,
and that the ride was as intolerable to her
as it was to him.
It was over at last, however : and now,
having all assembled in tho large, cheerful,
old country house, and having partaken of
a good, warm, bountiful country supper,
laid in a room where glowed a bright, hos
pitable wood fire, arrangements were boing
made for tho promised, aud eagerly expec
On repairing to the dancing room, where
most of tho company had assembled, Mr.
Blackwood's eye glanced in search of Jen
ny ; sho was not there, and conjecturing
that some adjustment of her dress detain
ed her up stairs, he sauntered up and
down the hall, nervously waiting for her.
The fact is, that ho had determined to
make his peace with her, by tho presenta
tion of a propitiatory bouquet. Ho had
procurod a very rare and beautiful one in
tho city, and had, by tilling infinite pains
to protect it from the frost, succeeded in
bringing it thither unharmed.
Jenny soon came tripping gaily down
tho stain. Blackwood in his heart thought
her tho swoetcst and loveliest creature in
tho world, and that ; ho would give his
right hand to win ono of her old smiles.
With a timidity quito new to him, he pre
scnted his flowers, and begged tho honor
of her hand for the first dance.' ' ! ' '
Jenny carelessly thanked him -'She was
engaged to Mr. Collins ' ' - ' 7
'Might he hope for the next then?' '' ;
'No, she was engaged to 5K Summers.'

Young Blackwood bit his lip, and his
old ill-lynilor returned; he went into tho
dancing-room, ancf sat sullenly in- a corner,
chewing the cud of his bitter faflcy, and
meditating on what he thought his flagrant ;
He watched Jenny, gay and brilliant,
dancing with first one gentleman, and then
another hmghing and chatting merrily all
tho time.1" In truth, the gentleman, pleas
ed to see her once more released from her
thraldom, crowded around her, and paid
hor so much attention, that she was really
the bello of tho evening. Blackwood's
jealous eye saw every thing ho saw his
own bouquet thrown carelessly aside, whilo

Mr. Collins, perhaps--was carried con
stantly in her hand, and Carefully cherish

'By George,' he lnutteied, at last, be

room who is not in love with her ! and

This absurd generalization of his jeal
ousy, might havs opened te eyes of a cool
er man, but Blackwood was almost beside
lftmself with apprehension, lest the pre
cious treasure, ho had come, by some
strange mental process to consider his owU,
should be stolen from him. He felt the

of manners. 1 ,
If, ho thought, she had at last grown
tired of him, (he felt sure bIic had loved
liiui once,) if sho were thinking of somo
one else, what remained for him. but to
throw himself into the river, or go crazy,
for life had lost every ehafm for him. ;
The thought of her riding home with
Mr. Collins was wormwood to him. He
dwelt upon it till the idca became insup
portable he must do something to prevent
it. Accordingly, he went to the gentleman
who had been voted master of ceremonies,
and who happened to be a particular friend
of his, and said, as carelessly as ho could,
'Ilarwood, my good fellow, you must do
something for me I'll do as mueh for you

a strange request. Collins will never con

'That's it that's it,' returned the ago
nized lover 'he'll bo making love to her

himself men are so hasty about these
things sometimes and she'll accept him,
and then I'm wretched for life that's
'I sec I sec,' returned his friend, smil- ,
