long time, and I am growing anxious.
Leslie Hall, Feb. 10.
I received two letters from Florence this
morning. The first wna written before she
heard of my widowhood, nnd has been
delayed somewhere most unaccountably.
I copy a portion of it, for lack of somo
thing better to do.
"Mr. Howard is wilh us every day.
You remember how full of life and gayely
he UBed to be? Now he is a3 grave and
silent as he can be, goes nowhere, see6 no
one, and is altogether as much of a recluse
as a wealthy, handsome young man
is permitted to be.
"I drag him o?ut sometimes to the balls
given at tho Government House, and
throw the moat charming girls at his heart.
He will dance with tlicm, if obliged to,
hand them to supper, or into a palanquin
ana there tho matter ends. I nm convinced
that he has been jilted by some
fair one and asked Luciun about it the
other 'night. Whereupon my lord assumed
a becoming tone of conjugal authority,
and remarked :
"There are som8 questions, Florence,
that even you cannot have answered.
Whatever misfortune has befallen Mr.
Howard llfi will ilnliVitloco nnnfi/lo If 1 ~
you when be wishes you to know it. But,
until be does, it would be quite as well
that you should remain in contented ignorance."
' "I subsided instantly, though I know
some such thing has occurred. Otherwise,
with that tenacious care for a fellow man's
'dignity* which all men have, Lucian
would have denied it flatly. 'Twas a
queer woman who could deny such a lover
as I know he would make. I think he
baa no equal, except Lucian, and I onlj
except him for appearance's sake.
The next letter was dated in November.
I make an extract from that, also :
"Your last letter was the most welcome
one I ever received. I have never Maid
eyes on' the one you allude to as containing
an account of Mr. Staunton's death ;
and we have been laboring under a terrible
mistake. A package of English papers
that bad been delayed on tlieir route,
reached us moro than a month ngo, and
on the obituary list was the announcement
of the death of 'Mrs. Edward Staunton, of
Winderaere Park, very puddonly of heart
disease/ The shock brought on ma a severe
illntss, and when my little girl rras
put in my arms, I called her Eleanor, and
Lucian added Howard, for the sake of
your cousin Fercy.'*
"I think my baby was five weeks old,
when Mr. Steward came to tell us goodbye,
as he was going with a party of gentlemen
to viait the interior. Ho looked
wretchedly.
"I know I shall always love him for bis
tenderness to ray baby* He begged permission
to bold her, and carried ber off to
the window in bis arms. When he gave
ber back to me. her l!fll? fnrn wa? wot u-iili
tears and a superb diamond cross glittered
on ber bosom.
I objected to ber receiving so costly n
gift, but he Bilenced ae by saying :
'I meant it for Eleanor ; let your little
one keep ii. The sight of it would afford
me exquijte pain/
"Of course, I said nothing more.
The party has been beard of several
times; they will be gone some six or
eight months."
The dear little baby 1 I wish I could see
it.
Leslie Hall, April 11.
My dear father died last night at eight
o'clock. He had been gradually failing,
but no one apprehended his immediate
dissolution until last night, when his
speech and consciousness fully returned;
and though' very much debilitated, he
could converse rationally. He saw his
lawyer for an hour, and the Rector f?r
some time.
. Towards midnight, as I wa3 giving him
some wine when, he became very much
agitated, and accused himself of cruelty
towards me, and pathetically besought my
forgiveness. I assured him of it with
manj tears, and he raised himself upon
his crutch with difficulty and, laying his
thin hands upon my head, blessed ma with
' tender words of love. The effort,, though;
was too much for him, and he aaolc buck
in a fainting fit, and never recovarad h's
consciousness again. , His death- was perfectly
painless. I only knew when life
.! 4 1 it I : t iL. i j l

Mj dear father was buried last evening
To-morrow I will rot'irn homo.
Mr. Alexander Leslie, the heir at-law,
has arrived. IIo was very kind to me,
telling mo 10 consider this my home, as
long as I choose to remain hero?and very

of hia offer though, as everything I cared
for was especially bequeathed me by my
father. Mr. Leslie is a distant cousin of
our?, though, from some family fiend I
have never seen hirn before. >The
day has been a painful and depressing
ono. I did not tbinlc I would fhind,
so much, seeing a stranger in my father's
plnce.
To-morrow I go home; this is tho last
night I will ever spend under my ancestral
roof. For centuries my father's have
dwelt in these halls, and now J, the last
living desccndent of the eldest branchs go
forth?and leave to a stranger the home

dead,
I took advantage of Mr. Leslie's kindties*,
in ono particular, and asked him to
continue to trust Mr. Marley vritli the business
of the estate. It has been in the
hands of hia family for several generations,
and ho has bo completely identified himself
with it, that I am sure it would break his
henrt to giva it up. Mr. Leslie granted
my request, a3 soon as I made it. So Mr.
Marley will remain in the homo where the
summer of his life was spent; and in
whose walla the frosts of ages have fallen
on hia head. I will be the only exile.
TLo laws of primogeniture, or, more cor
rectly speaking, the male entail, may be an
excellent arrangement for family pride.
But it. frequently causes a sacrifice of local
attachments, from the daughters of a
house, that sometimes outbalance the advantPges
of the system. That is when
human sorrow is weighed against family
pride.
"Windemere Park, May 1.
My twenty-first birth-day; and I am a
grave, sorrowful woman?orphand and a
widow once but, retrospection is
at best unprofitable, and with me more
than useless.
If I can forget the part, I will be satisfied.
I have but few interests in life, and
I would fain buy peace at the price of
oblivion. I cannot sleep, each moment,
some dread hope, or buried joy resurrects
itself, and haunts me with its ghost. Why
cannot I forget ? Eiich yoar of my life
rises up in view before me. My spirited,
petted childhood. My gay girlhood, when
I was courted, and indulged till life was a
long holiday dream. My marriage, and
the cheerless year that followed it; the
scorching agony ; the long weary months
of woe and wretchedness ; my widowhood,
and the more recent scenes of sorrow that
I have pasEed through. All come crowding,
and jostling eaoh other, until my
brain whirls, my heart sickens, and I cry
aloud, why, oh, why cannot I forget?
Uli for some JLethenn stream in winch to
plunge and blot out all the paat.
Windemeue Tark, May 10.
Aunt Margaret Las, nt last, consented
to make dear, good Dr. Lennox happy, by
promising to be bis wife. They are a
very orthodox pair of loverp, never indulging
in a bit of nonsense. He rides over
every evening (six miles,) to see her. But
any one to see them together would only
consider them friends. They will be married
in August, and remain here till Jan*
u&ry, and then go to housekeeping. Dr.
Lennox has given up his practice to his
nephew, and will devote himself to the
comfortable, easy life of a country gentle
man. Aunt Margaret laughs and calk
herself an old goose, to think of marrying.
But alio is lonely and discontented,
and any woman would be overcome by the
devotion that has waited more than twenty-five
years for her. It sounds absurd,
when you think that she is forty-five and
heflfty; bat there is something infinitely
touching in the affair to me ; and I often
have the tears to rise in my eyes when 1
notice his devotion to her.

I was surprised this evening by a visil
from Mr. Alexander Leslie. lie is on his

. or two. I like him very much ; hoBeeraa
, to be a warmhearted, clannish man, and
; regrets tho feud that has kept us slran,
gere eo long. So do I now, though once I
> rather gloried in my father** implacability,
r I thought it once a want of proper pride
-to yield an atom to an enemy. Now I
have learnt that the true, manliness and
dignity of human nature ie best indicated
I by a generous, forgiving temper. He i<
bravest, who, when in error, can frankly
confess it, and aeek a reconciliation; not
ho who is so unceiVun of his honor, that
lie fearo to peril it by a concession to an
injured opponent.
I did r.ot mean to go off into an cthical
treatise though.
Mr. Leslie is Tery agreeable; uol brilliant
nor talented, but he has travelled a
great deal, and being a shrewd, sensible
maHj Las very many things to talk about j
that are worth hearing.
lie is plain a^d straightforward in his
manners, and gives you an idoa~~ that bo is
thoroughly honest, a man whom you can
trur,t and rely upon.
lie is not handsome, stiictly speaking;
but there is something very attractive in
his appearance. Ilis fnceia so resoluto;
a rich bronzed complexion: vary dark
beard and moustache, almost black; and
a beautiful shaped head ; rather irregular
features, but beautiful oyes; largo clear,
well opened, violet blue, with the pleas*
antest expression in them. I suppose he
is about twonty-live or six years old, though
ho docs not give you the impression of
beiDg a very young man. He is passionately
fond of music, although ho cannot
?ingntnll. I played for him to-night.
The first tiuie I have touchod an instrument
