PRIDE AND TEMPER.
Caroline . and Edward Spencer
had been engaged in marriage to
each other from childhood, and tho
period at which their , friends had
determined, that their union should
take place having arrived, they
were united under many favorable
auspices. They were equally ac
complished, in comfortable circum
stances, and possessed of a -similarly'1
of dispositions and tastes
which was particularly remarkable.'
They were, as it was observed,
formed for eaclf other. One single
defect, however, on each side;, mar
red' all,and rendered them supreme
ly miserable. 1
The period generally known as
the honeymoon had passed over
without any occurrence approach
ing to a direct misunderstanding,
and the voung couple sat ono eve
ning in the enjoyment of the most
','Doyou recollect," said Caroline,
"the happy days we used to spend
together sauntering on the banks
of our beautiful river, and inhaling
the fresh airwhich lightly rippled
"I do, my dear,' replied her hus
band. 'And do you recollect when you
said that if marriage were half as
nleasant as that time, vou would.
when we weie unitedj think . your-.
sell the happiest of mortals!' -..
'I do.' ,
' 'And do you remember the lavo
rite songs we U6ed to 6ing?'
. lYes.', '
'And how jealous you would be
whenever I spoko to that fop Mor
ris?' : . ,
. 'No, I do not.' ,
.'What! not recollect that?' . . ,;
'But I deny it, my dear.' . ' t r
'Now, you. know you were; come,
confess it': .. . : : i : .
'Do you wish- me to con less that
which I know was cot so? But let.
us- quit- the subject1 Haveyou
tried either of those airs I brought
you yesterday?';1 - '
Ah! you shan't escape' me in
that manner: I insist on it-you
were horriblv- jealous of vounc
Morris, and every one saw it.' 1 1 ;
I tell you once more, Mrs: Spen
cer, I was not. Have you tried the
airs?' ' i:-
'Never mind the airs, my dear, I
wish to convince vou that vou were
jealous. - Do you not recollect the
Edward rose from his chair.

'But.why should it be disagreea
Kble to vou? ' Just sav ' von wern
jealous, and I shall be satisfied.'.
Tl : J' ! . a.
" xie maae no repiy, out lmmeai
ately left the room', when hit y oung
wife perceived that she- had gone
a'little too far;'1 ' L; " a -
'He is so irritable, she said; but
instead of .following, her,1 husband,
to endeavor to soothe his irritations
she sat down, to the piano , to fry
the airs he had brought her1'; .''
In the interim he had retired to
ewjuuung aparuneni, somewnat
convinced himself thaf he had actxl
edl1 precipitately, ! However be
thought his wife would no doubt
follow him, anxious, to adjust the
little difference. , , He, therefore,
threw himself on a couch, expect
ing every moment to see her enter
the apartment. What then.' was
his surprise tb hear the sound of
mubic from tho room he had left,
arid the voice of his wife accompa
nying apparently in the most un
concerned manner the instrument
she was playing. Consideiing him
self .treated with indifference, if
rt(ft contempt, he put on his hat and
walked out into the street in no
very enviable humor; A his evil
fU tune would have it, he had-nt
pfoceeaed very lar.when he en
countered the arch tempter him
self, in the shape of a friend on his
way to the club, of which both had
been, members, but- from 'which
Spencer, in, the . determination to
lead ft domesticated life, had with
drawn since his 'mnrriage. ' In his
then state of mind, it required very
little persuasion to go thither, and
thither he went, remaining until
early the ensuing morning, when he
returned home.; His wife had re
tired to bed, and, not willing to dis
turb her, he crept noiselessly in
His rage had evaporated, and, had
he found her aware, the difference
between ihem might have been sat
isfactorily adjusted. She had,how
ever, after crying bitterly at what
had occurred, fallen asleep ' Pride
kept her, the next morning, from
confessing that she had been at all
annoyed or grieved at her husband's
absence; and when he "hoped that
she had not been .very unhappy,?
she replied, 'not at all.' This at
once put an end to any' explana
tion, and in the evening he 'thought
that, as Mrs. Spencer felt so happy
in his absence, there could bt no
objection to his spending the even
ing once more from homo.' The
club was'again resorted to, arid be
ing induced ,tp engage in play, he
a'rose a great losers 'He returned
home chafed and annoyed,, and in
no mood tq"' make concessions ,'of
arty: description, far less' to endure
'I hope you have enjoyed your
self at tho club?', said, his wife tb
him as he entered the room.-
'Woman, leave ine alone!' he re
'You alreadv seem to think mar-
riago by no means as pleasant as
'Leave me alone, 1 6ay, or I shall
What! you will strike me too!
Do so, and crown your amiable and
The young man raised his hand,
as if to comply with the taunt, but
suddenly checking himself, he
again took his hat and rushed has
tily lrom the house. He hurried
on through the dark and nearly de
serted streets, without an. object,
and not knowing or thinking what
he intended to do with himself.
Suddenly he stopped beiore a largo
well lit building. He surveyed it
anxiously, and then seemed about
to pass on; but, apparently drawn
by an irresistible impulse,' he at
length went in.' , It was. the club
once more the place which he had
recently left under circumstances
so unfortunate. He had still a few
pounds in cash with him, and had
determined to make one effort more
to redeem' previous losses. In the
excited slate of his mind, it is un
necessary to say that the effort was
unsuccessful. He: 'would ;have
quitted at once, but friends were
there to urge him on, and to ad
vance him money on the r ecurity
of his watch, notes of hand, &c.
Maddened by repeated losses, he
at length played deeply reckless
ly. When he left the house for the
second time that night, he was 1 a
beggared man !
And what was Caroline's impres
sion of the whole matter? Up to
the moment of her husband's quit
ting her for the third time, she re
garded herself as a deeply injured
woman. She had obstinatly per
sisted in a course ' which was '. dis
pleasing tb, her husband, bat never
thought for moment that she had
done any thing to call forth his an
ger. She, had been too proud' to
admit' concern , at the . difference
which had' taken' 'place between
them; yet acquitted herself of any
act which 1 tended to prolong that
difference." She had taunted, when
she should have soothed him :?and
yet did not conceive that she had
been in any shape instrumental in
causing him to quit his home; 0 In
the morning: when he'doggedlt re
lated what had occurred, It was,"
ph said; "jnat wHK he eTpctd,
and just what she V deserve d, for
marrying him.V . ,;
Here, then, was a most unpleas
ant state of affairs. . There were
two parties united together for life,
who seemed destined to live at var
iance. 1 There was to be conten
tion, and yet very precarious sup
port. The "dinner of herbs" was
probably to be there, but the"love,"
which alone could render it palata
ble, was tq be absent. There was,
however, rio help for it,' and how
ever disagreeable it must bd en
dured. .They thought of separa
tion, bu soon abandened the idea;
lor , although . unl appy together,
they had, strango to say, no earn
est desire to part. At length, aflei
many ; disappointments, employ
ment was procured for Ed
ward Spencer through the in
slrumentality ' of 1 friends, and
they entered upon a, 'new1 life.
Many privations they had to en
dure, and many struggles to under
go. ' The temper which could not
brook contradiction was now. sub
jected to restraint ; and the pride
that forbade the admission of error,
of the acknowledgement of a pang,
sank under the weight of compar
ative poverty, and tho consequent
neglect of friends. Theresult was,
Caroline and Edward Spencer were
both humbled : and when their hu
mility became an active quality
which did so 60on as tho novelty of
their situation wore off they then
led a happier life. Industry and
frugality at length crowned their
efforts, and they were enabled once
more to move in a respectable
sphere of society. It was in the
same room, and about tho same
spot, " that some short time after
this favorable reverse of their for
tunes, they were again found in
dulging in reminiscences of the
"Does it riot seem strange," said
Edward, "that so trifling a circum
stance as your supposing that I
was once jealous of young Morris
should have led to all our misfor-
tuner-. ;.; r
"No, my dear,"replied his wife,
"it was not-'tkal circumstances, but
my foolishly. insisting upon the
matter after I . saw that you were
annoyed at it."
"But then, how silly of me to be
annoyed at such a trifle ?"
"Oh ! how I wept tho first even
ing you quitted me."
"And I have supposed that you
cared not whether I were offended
or not." :
"The fact is, my dear," said Car
oline, "I had then too much pride."
"Ana 1, retorted Ldward, giving
a kiss, "too little temper."
