Then he undergoes, under his own hand,
the hebdomadal shave. The iast mite of
dust and defilement is studiously brushed
from the Sundy-go-to-meeting suit. His
inward communings all the while being
how he would appear to a certain country
coquet. Has he not pondered the same
matter since last preaching? There is no
tardiness here. Unlike his city cousin, he
waits for no second bell. There is none.
By ten o'clock he has reached the spot, ex
tricated and tied his animal to a swinging
limb. Numerous squads of him can be
seen standing about, sweeping with a swift
eye the incoming vehicles and scanning the
faces of the occupants. Or little coteries
of the same typical individual sitting on
the spreading roots of the magnificent oaks.
All are on the qui vive, but not for the
preacher, nor the services.
His sharp eye shrewdly suspects the
identity of a pair of horses, and a family
carriage in the distance. You know this.
You might safely swear it. See how he
twists and points his Napoleonic moustache
and imperial. Hear his nervous inconse
quential replies to his frinds, perhaps twit
ting him with his fancv.
The same old story is told again..
Off he rushes to the charmed spot m here
the conveyance has stopped. In his haste
and tiemulousuess he almost offers to assist
the colored driver down, but don't do it.
Pulls his hat to the fair freight inside :
"Good morning Miss Jcanuie and Miss
Mary, let me help you." Ah, blissful mo
ment ! he absolutely touches the divine
ha.id in aiding her to alight and seeing her
up the steps of the Church. And the little
fa'iy, herself, does she come to worship ?
Let's look at her :
"A dainty little bonnet,
TLe sweetest marabout,
A sea of tawny wavelets,
O'er forehead white as snow,
A brace of sparkling samphire,
Two cheeks of rosy dye,
A pair of lips of ruby,
And a fuscinatiug sih.
Think'st thou fhe goes to worship ?
Ah ! it's difllcuU to tell,
Bat it's plain bott -iints and sinner,
Worship that Sabbath eelle.

A costume all brocaded,
Short pettiskirts with flounces,
Iu endless colors braided,
Enameled shoes with buckles.

With loft-, taper heel-taps,
To gi:e a classic bend.
Think'st thou it's for God's glory,
She dresses out so well ?
Or does she want some saint 01 tinner
To love the Sabbath belle J"
But now we regret to
state a fact. As
the little belle can't multiply herself into
comforters for all the expectant beaux, the
unfortunate ones usually linger on the out-
ide ef the Church during the entire service.
The truth of this pictuie can be verified
on auy Sabbath when services are held at
the Falls church near Rocky Mount.
On Sunday last, accompanied by our
friend, Capt. S. T. W., we attended this
church, and listened to some pertinent re
