In on of th loveliest villages of old Vii
gini there lived in tho year 1 75-, an old
mm whod daughter was declared by uni
versal consent to be the loveliest nvti len
in all thi country round. The veteran
youth halbjeu athletic and muscular a
bove all his fellows; and his breast, where
he always wre thorn, could show the a
dorueraentof three medals received for his
victories in gymnastic feats when a young
rmn. ills uaugmer was now eigimcu,
nd had baen sought in marriage by many
suitors. One brought wealth, another a
finSTperson, another this, and another that.
But they ware all refused by the ol I man,
who bsuame at last a by-word for his ob
stinacy among tho young men of the vil
ltga and neighborhood.
. At longtU the nineteenth birthday of
Annotte, his charming daughter, who was
i amiable and modest, as she was beauti
ful, arrived. The morning of that day her
father invited all tho youth of the country
to a haymaking frolio. Sjventeen haul
ohh an l industrious young men assem
bled.. They o:tmj not only to make liny,
but to Tjnke love to the Mr Annette. In
three hours they had filled the father's
barm With novly dryod grass, and their
own hearts beat with love. Annette, by
her father's command, ha 1 brought the
m lit liquor of her own brewing, which she
presented to her enamored swains with her
own fair hands. .
"Now, my boys," said the old keeper
of the jewel they all courted, as leaning on
their pitchforks they assembled round tne
door iu the cool of the evening; "now, my
lads, you hsve nearly all made proposals
for my Annette. Now, you see, I don't
care any thing. about money or talents,
book learning or soldier learning I can
do as Well by my gal as any man in the
country; but I want her to marry a man of
her own grit. Now, you know, or ought
to know, when I was a youngster, I could
beat anything in all Virginia in the very
pleasing way of leaping. I got my old wo
man by baating the smartest man on the
E tstorn Shore, and I have took the oath
and sworn it that no man shall marry my
own daughter without jumping for her.
You understand me, boys. There's the
green, and here's Annette," ho added, tak
ing his daughter, who stood timidly be
hind him, by the hand. "Now, the ono
that jumps the farthest on a 'dead level,'
shall mvry Annette this very night."
This unique address was received by the
young ' men with applause; and many a
youth ft be bounded gaily forward to tho
arena of trial, oast a glance of anticipated
viotory, back upon the lovely object of the
villago ohivair. The . maidens left their
lqoriij and 'quilting frames the children
their noisy sport, the slaves their labor,

pipes, to witness, and triumph in the suo-

He was lha hrtiidaOtnest and bout humorod

The arena allotted for this hymenial con
tost was a level space in front of the vil
lage inn, and near the centre of a prass
plat, reserved in the midst of the village,
denominated the "Green." The verdure
was quite worn off at this place by previ

'Now,' oried the anxious villagers, 'let's
see Henry Carroll: he ought to beat this,'
and every one appeared, as they eallsd to
mind the mutual low of the last compel)

Henry steppod to his post with a firm
