I v;h rcdtrtiliig homo after nn absence
of t'iplit yars ; returning to tlio homo of
1113- chiMItootl. The lumbering coach that
horts rabidly along, wa? already entering
the little village where was born, where
1 liatl received tho first rudiments of knowl
edge ; where I had eported many a hajipy
cliildliood's hour, and whore I had dr.t
learned to love. Yes, to love the prettiest,
merriest, and proudett maiden in all the
village "not wisely, but too well." She
rejected tny suit ; alto had higher afpira
tious. It was true t-he lilted uiu very well
it might be', loved me, but L waa not
rich ; and she was proud and haughty, ns
well a.s beautiful. Vit alto was indeed
kind and charitable ; the did not reject
my offer disdainfully, but seemed to ttitdy
some method bv which her irrevocable
reply might give 1110 no pain. I did not
fjuestiou her motives ; I knew them too
ivell, and then and there I resolved that if
health should bo spared me, I would be
gin life ; 1 would depait at onee from uri
native village, and some day nturn a
wealthy man not again to urge my suit,
not even to claim her ns a ftieitd or nc
(uaiiitaneo, unless it should be her express
desire ; for 1, too, had a proud spirit, and
could never condescend to plead with a
All thee thoughts passed rapidly thro'
my mind as I ueared my father's cottage ;
and I rejoiced to think that in part my
purpose had been accomplished. I was
rich rich even under the fastidious requi
sitions of Isabel llayne ; richer than Iter
father had ever been, and yet my fcteru
resolvo had seen uo change.
I met my father, now silver haired with
age. My mother had been lying in her
silent, narrow home for nearly two years.
My sitcr,on!y sister, whom I foully hoped
to meet, was married, and lud gone to a
distant place to dwell. '1 ho spirit of change
had breathed upon every dear and famil
iar object. I met the companions of my
youth, who we'eotned me back with smiles
which seenk-d tho distorted mockery of
tite smile that lit up their happy faces in
inv bovhood days. They weie "rowing
old. Vet some .seemed apparently no older
than when 1 had seen them eight years
I did not meet Miss llayne ; nor did I
even inquire about her. She had probably
gone away, or what was quite as probable,
her father might have beeomo so wealthy
that sho no longer moved in tho vill.tgo
society, l'erhaps blio was married, and
was living in bo'.no other place. What
was she to me, that I should fpend a
thought in speculation as to tho catt-e ( f
! her invisibility ? And yet 1 could notifl'aco
,hcr imago ftom my mind. If ever in dis
taut lands 1 had succeeded in banishing
hvi from my memory, 1 could nut do so
now. Tho associations of home and famil
iar scuirs brought back thu rerollcction of
happy days, and her name her lorm,
)U;t as she appeared to mo then was in
di-pcnsably to complete tha pitturo fancy
BLOOMSBURG, COLUMBIA COUNTY, PA-,
painted me. There was a social gathering
nt a friend's, but sho was not there. Why
should I look so anxiously nbout. hoping
and yet fearing to encounter her beautiful
face f Why could I not forget her at once,
and forever ( Some one mentioned her
name. "Why was sho not there .'"
"Sho docs not go out now sitico their
misfortune," was the reply.
"What a pity! Poor llayne ! They say
that ho supports him by teaching."
"Yes, she is engaged in a school just
beyond the village. It must bo a severe
and humiliating lesson to her ; sho was
I must confess I was interested, and
desired to know more, much more ; but I
asked uo questions I could not forget tho
Xot long after this I learned that Mr.
Nayne's hoto and grounds, which had
passed into tho hands of some largo land
owner, was again for sale. I purchased
it, having no definite purpose m view, un
less it was the thcught that it would make
a comfortable, residenco for my father in i
his declining years, since his own cottage
was getting quite out of repair. I at onco I
sot about repairing tho mansion, for that
too had felt the mouldering touch of time;
and for that purpose I frequently drove
out to watch and direct the operations of
the men employed.
I was one day driving leisurely along,
elicit I copied, at some distance before me, '
on old man, bent with age, and groping
his tedious way along the road. 1'rcscntly
he sat down by tho roadside to rest, and j
thcn I came up I offered him a scat iu my ,
"Never mind," he paid,"it is only a lit-1
tie way that I have to go ; just to yonder
school hou-e on the hill-top. I go there '
sometimes when tlio days arc pleasant like ',
this to meet my daughter and accompany
her home from school She i.tho teacher,
you know." j
I disregarded his refusal of my olTer, 1
and sprang cut pf the chaise, extending '
him my hand to asi-t him to a scat, as
thou.dt I thought it a matter of course that j
he would ride.
'Well, well,' said he, "since you wish it, I
1 will go with jou. 'fhcre are not many'
that arc kind to the old man now. I am
not what 1 was rix years ago 1 I was a .
rich man then very rich; but speculation
did tho mischief. See yonder house just I
beyond the school ; it was minu. Ah ! it
was a happy home, but it never can bo
mine again. '
And thus ho babbled on ; for tho infir
niities of age, prematurely induced hy his
misfortune, had rendered him garrulous.
J lo was indeed changed; for among all I
had seen since my return home, not ono
had grown so old as ho. lie did not rec
ognize me; and as I drove slowly along,
very slowly for he said many things that '
were it foresting to me I learned more of
his circumstances, and of tho sacrifice', 1
conccs-ious, efforts and filial affection of1
his daughter habel Iho name affected
me, I will confess it than 1 had pmious
I had often passed the school house, ai
it was directly on my way to my new pur-1
chase, hut had never before caught sight of '
tho fair teacher. As we now approached,
I observed tho fcholars ru-hing from tho I
dnnr. mill lli.fnen u-n ilrrtvr. nn clii. ttr.rcnlf
emerged and stood before us.
"Ah, Iiabel, this kind gentleman urged
mo to ride iu his chaie, and I want you
to thank him iu my behalf, becattso you
do not know how much it has rested me."
If I had remained unrecognised by the
father, I could not es'eapa the searching
glance of the daughter. Her quickly
changing color indicated at once that sho
knew, or at leat suspected who 1 was. I
turned round my chai-o, sprang out aud
oll'ered to assist her in, saying, "Permit
me, Mi.s llayne your father is fatigued,
and 1 will drive jou lo your home. 1
shall haro ample time to atteud to my other
Sho stammered some excuse; but I in
sisted upon her riding, and had tho satis
faction of seeing her yield.
For a moment I gave myself up to the
happy memories of tho past. I was again
bcido the only being I had ever loved. I
felt tho rutlo of her dress against my
hand aud notwithstanding my exterior
coldness and assumed formality, I could
not buppicss tho tumult within.
Isabel was littlo changed ; but changed
much for the better. 'I ho haughty midd
en had becomo tho beautiful woman. She
was pensivo, tad. I5ut little was said du.
ring our humoward drive, except that
which was uttered by tho talkatho old
geutleman. Isabel said nothing. What n
strange meeting! had I been an entire
stranger, ns Mr. Ilnyno supposed mo, it
could scarcely havo been different. Sho
did indeed sniilo when I lifted her from
tho chaise, then INpcd, "thank you," then
blushed, then paled again. Mr. Hayno
cordially iuvited mo to re Nit their humblo
cottage, and solicited tho honor of know
ing my name.
''Is it possible?" ho exclaimed ; "is this
indeed our old friend Tcmplo's son 1 and
returned rich too, they say. Heaven grant
you may make good use of your money j
but bo warned by nn old man, and make
no rash venture. Here, Isabel, daughter!
Did you not know this gentleman ! This
is Harry Temple. You surely cannot
have forgotten him."
"I scarcely recognized hi in," she repli
ed, somewhat confushd, ns sho returned to
lead her invalid father into the houe. "I
hopo wc shall havo the pleasure of seeing
you hero again, Mr. Temple."
It was tho same sweet voico ps of old,
tempered by charity, humility and affec
tion ; and softcnod by tho influence of re
ligion and filial affection.
I pondered well the circumstances.
Should 1 3'ield to tho yearnings of my
heart? Should I again offer my hand,
perhaps to be refused ? Perhaps sho would
not a second time reject my offer. I was

sacrifice of principlo on my part to offer

The following description is given in n
letter to tho Paris Paine, by a correspon
dent at Shanghai : " I was lately iuvited
to visit tho wedding of a young Chinese, a
relative of a high functionary of Shanghai.
You are aware, perhaps, that polygamy is
not sanctioned by tho laws of China ; no
man can havo moro than ono legitimate
wife, but ho may havo na many of what
arc called little wives as his means enable
him to keep. Tho position of these inferi
or wives is little better than slavery. All
the females of the upper class aro kept in
complcto seclusion till their marriage;
which is invariably settled by their pa
rents, and gouerally through the medium
of a mci-jin, or kind of female matrimoni
al agent, whoso profession is considered
respectable. This agent makes all the
preliminary inquiries respecting tho for
ture and position of the parties, and then
consults a .oothsayer as to the advisability
of the match. This) person casts thu na
tivity of tho young couple, and if he de
clares the .tars to be ptopitious, the future
bride aud bridegroom aro introduced to
each other in the prosenoe of their fam
ilies, but the lady is always closely veiled
till after the marrijgo ceremony is per
formed. To return to tho wedding I have
)m1 witnessed. On arriving at the resi
dence of tho bridegrooms father, I found
all the family assembled in the nnoostral
hall, an apartment consecrated to religi
ous festivals. When all the company had
arrived, tho mci-jin, who appealed to act
as mistress of the ceremonies, requested
the head of the family to take his place,
au elevated seat at the end of tho room,
and ordered tho bridegroom to be intro
duced. The young man, on entering,
saluted the company with great respect,
and prostrated himself on the Uoor. Uu
iising in obedience to his father orders,
tho youth approached tho table iu the
middle of the room, look up a glass of
wine, spilt a few drops of it, and drank
off thu rest at a draught. Ho then knelt
on the floor and listened to a long speech
from his father, ackuowledgcd by bowing
to show his respect and obedience. When
the father ceased speaking, ho rose and
accompanied by his friends and retainers,
went to bring his bride. As ho stepped
into a palanquin which was waiting at the
door, au astonishing concert of gongs and
brass intruments of all kinds began, ac
compauied by loud cxplo-ions of fire
works. This deafening noise was kept up
till we reached tho lady's residence, where
everybody alighted and entered tho court
yard. As soon as tho bridegroom had
been formally announced, his father-in-law,
leading the bride by tho hand, ciiino
out to receive him. I happened to ho in
a fiMorablo position for seeing the lady,
who wore a long cloak of hluo silk, orna
mented with colored embroidery. Shu
had ou also, I perceived, bracelets and a
necklace. Her head was covered by a
veil, but I could distinguish her features,
and plainly saw that her cheeks had been
painted white, and her lips tiuted with
carmine. After a short prayer tho bride
was conducted to her palanquiu,the brido
groom to his, and tho whole oavaleado was
soon iu movement. As tho bride crossed
tho threshold thcro was auothcr fearful
outburst of gong, trumpets and fireworks.
Her palanquin advanced in tho midst of
tho musicians and a crowd of persons
carrying lanterns aud flags. Ou reach
ins her future home, she and her husband
knelt down in the ancestral hall, while
thu marriage contrai t was read ; the
bonze then performed the religious part of
tho ceremony, which terminated with a
prayer repeated in chorus by all present.
Tho newly married pair wero theu con
ducted to tho nupit.il chamber to reeciro
their friends. Tho day coucludcd with a I
grand banquet. j
Tho first act of tho newly married con I
plo at table, was to dtink out of tho tamo j
cup. iho undo merely touched it with
her lips, the bridegroom then drank off
the contents and broko tho cup. After
partakiug of a great variety of dishes, tho
company withdrew, aud I returned homo

Tun Ai'AitAciiiAN Indians, The his
tory of tho West Indies, by llockefort, in
1037, contains an interesting, but iuiprob
able account of tho Florida Indians of that
day. They are represented as dressiug
with a degree of barbaric taste ; living iu
houses of stakes, roofed with reeds and Iho
impervious gum of n tree, and floored with
cement; sleeping on rudo bedsteads, with
bods of skins aud sacks stuffed with down,
aud laid over with ornamental peltries, and
eating with a splinter of bone, used ns
a fork. Their food was vegetables never
flesh until tho European came and their
drink water, a kind of beer, and a bever
age mado with honey. Tho were remark
ably industrious, haviug all their lands in
common, aud working under their chief, in
battalions. They had various musical in
struments, iu which they wero skillful, and
were addicted to singing aud of amiable
aud teachable disposition. They traded
among themselves, and had acurrency of
different colored grains. Polygamy was
practiced, and marriages wero always
among relatives, nny other being consid
ered disrcputablo. They only fought for
self defence, using bows, aud war clubs,
slings aud javelius. They spared all who
asked mercy iu war, and only scalped the
slain. Their priests wero also physicians,
and they worshipped the tun, to which they
offered tongs and prayers every morning
aud evening. They had a great religious
celebration four timos a year, when they
burned incense, had songs and dances,
and let fly saercd birds. They believed
in tho immortality of the soul, and had
traditions of tho deluge. Tho bodies of
the dead were embalmed before buried.
In tho morning they used to cut off somo
of their hair, but ou tho death of tho kin"
shaved the whole crown, and kept it baro
three years, during which timo tho royal
corpse remained. They wero still a few
