medical students are proverbially " hard

and whose very laughter has a sort of

But our friend. W ill Ashley, fortunately
belonged not to the Rob Sawyer and Ben
Allen class of Esculapian disciples. He
was a man of refinement, intellect, educa
tion, and principle pleasing address, fine
person, and good family. K-publiran n
I am, I can but think much of goo'l blood
pure and honorable blood, I mean. He
had no bravado, no preten-ion, no reck
lessness, no skepticism about him. He
chose hia profession at the firat. ftom a
real, natural leaning that way, and pur
sued it with true enthusiasm and 11 tiring
constancy ; and this partiality and devotion
have been rewarded with ihn happiest uc
cess. Dr. Ashley is now regarded by hia
many patients, with a remarkable confi
dence and affection. To them, there seems
healing in the very creak of his shoes on
the stairs," his cheerful smile lights up the
ick room like sunshine ; I. is gentle words
and sympathetic tones are as balm and
' freshening oil" to hearts and minds,
wounded and distempered with the body,
and his bright laugh and playful wit are a
positive tonic to the weak and nervous and
(earful. But I am anticipating; my story

At Buffilo, our travelers took the after
noon boat for Chippewa. It was a bright,
and breezy day, errly in July water,
earth and sky were lit up gloriously by the
declining 'sun, as ihey swept down that
grand. immortal river. As the brother aad
sister stood on deck, silently drinking in
ihe rare beauty of the scene and hour,
they noticed a party near them.distinguish
ed amid all the crowd, by a ceitain quiet
elegam-e of dress and manner, with a bear

This wa a family party, and consisted ol

Ashley was a thorough republican
proud and poor; and being now more
than usually inclined to coldness and re
serve, instinctively shrunk from all contact
with this party, in whom he at once recog
nized the air patrician and exe'usivc. But
towards evening, Mr. Harley made some
courteous advances, nnd finally succeeded
in ceiling up quite a free and animated
conversation with his young fellow-Ira.

gnze.initanily, while a deup bliih sufTised
her bright, ingenuous fare. An invo!un

Aihley, and hit cold eye Lindltd with a

That night, after supper, which he had
served in a private parlor, Mr. Hatley
sought the room of Ashley his heart
overflowing with gratitud towurd the
young hero, and his thought busy with
plan of generous recompense. At the
door he met a servant hearing away a wel
Iravelling-suit.which sight quickened even
more his warm and kindly feelings. He
entered, lo find Mr. Ashly wrapt in a
dressing-gown, sitting by a table. h
head bent down on his hands, a plate of;
light food, almost untasted, and a cup of
tea, half drunk, pushed back from before
him. He was looking even paler and
more spiritless than usual. Id fact, our
friend was completely exhausted by the
excitement and exertion of the evening,
and consequently deepened into moodiness
and reserve. Ho rose, however, as his
visitor entered, and bowing politely, beg
ged him to be seated. Hut Mr. Hirley
came forward, took his hand, and pressing
it warmly, looked kindly into that pale.
quiet face, his own countenance all a-glow.
and tears actually glistening in his deep
set.gray eyes. Ashley cast down hisown
eye in painful embarrassment, which Mr.
Harley perceiving, took the proffered
eb.iir.and strove to converse awhile 00 in
different topics. Bul he soon came round
to the subject nearest his heart dwell

closed with, ' -

which he involuntarily drew himself up,
and curled his short upper hp ; and when

Tired and iiidiffert-Dt, Ashley flung him

headache, made a light breakfast, and hur

The day was wnndrously beautiful, and

and it seemed to her like an innocent .con
fiding spirit, coming near to the might and
grandeur of Ieity, through the beautiful
gateway of love.
Ashley was at length roused from his
trance of h'gh-wrought rapture, by feeling
n small, timid hand laid on his arm, and
turned to see Master Fred standing at his
side, with a faint glow on his check, and
an affectionate pleasure shining in hi sun
ken eye. The lad, In-day someihing of

supported by a servant. Ashley fell an

The fall succeeding the journey to Ni

in his native city. Not possessing wealth,

and rrwd.t, he had al first few, very few

It happeued that the young physician's
way home from his t ffi.-e, lay past, and
very near to the elegant residence of Mr.
t wealthy and somewhat distin
guished citizen of II ; nd, pouring
through the open windows of his mansion,
he one night heard the sweetest singing
that had ever met his ear. It was a clear,
fresh con'.ra'.to voice, artistic in execution,
vet sweet, and full of feeling.
Ashley, a fine singer himself, was pas
sionately fund of music ; and he lingered
long before that house, walking up and
down beneath the thick shadows of the
"rand old elms.

This was but the beginning of p.easure,
night after night, for some, weeks. lou"a
the young physician in the same J
when he ws almost always so happy as,
to hear that rare, delirious singiog, ihrdl- j

a gay group on the piazz t. and among
them a slight figure in white, looking very
-i- -a b-.licaia in the moonlight ; then
there would come the miming t .---r
and sweet love-lays of Italy, or wild bal
lads r f Spain.
And thus it went on, till Ashley, the in
visible listner, had become altogether en
chanted, spell-bound. in love with a voire,
ti l fast and far in the dim distance, faded
away that late lamiliar vUion in yellow
oil-cloth and falling hood, nnd fair, kind

self, he now looked sean hingly at the fair
f romi-naders whom he met on the street,
and there sw pretty young ladies enough,
but no one in whom he recognized his idea
of ibe sweet singer.
Al length the hour of good fortune came
alike to the physician and lo the lover.
Just at sunset, on a pleasant evening a
voung horseman came dashing up to Or.
Ashley's office, to summons him to a lady
who had dislocated her ankle in springing
from her horse. Our hero' heart beat
quick as the messenger directed him tn
the house of Mr. N. The doctor was
shown iiilo a small parlor, where, en 11
louniie, chid in a white wrapper, reclined
his first patient. A wealth of rich, golden
hair, somewhat dishevelled, first attracted
Ashley's eye ; there was something stran
