'near the junction of two business avenues.

bfcame rhor'e atldmore intaregting.and ev
tfy day rriy resolution to unravel it became
sti-ohgfr. Thero waisuoh modesty iatlio
girl's bearing nt the apple-stand she
seemed so much afraid of scandal, ' should
iany one eoovorse with hor longer than was
necessary to make purcliases.that there was
i no way left for me to solve the mvstervof
I her life but by visiting tho cottago. , Again
x went, wunoiH an inviuition, and boldly
made known the curiosity which led mo to
force myself upon their acquaintance
aughtet laughed heartily, and said
"We have boon ns much at fault to nn
dors'and your curiosity as you have to rec

"Then wcshould be.mutual conGdants,"
I observed, "I have boen very frank with
you nnd I hope you will reciprocate."
"Uut our relations are not similar,'' sho
replied archly. ' "We aro not responsible
for yrmr curiosity, yon are for ours."
-'How so," 1 cried.
. ''It was fdrcbd iipon ns'." ' ' :
"Indeed; and was not forced upon mo, in
such a manner too, as left ma no choice
but to seek out the mystery? A truce to
this bandying of words, you wili not tako
advantage of frankness for any other pur
pose than to reward it with full explana

She looked at mc a moment, ns -if ques

"Well, as You have been so jrood a "pat

much pains to know tho romance of my
history, if you will promise secrecy, 111
"I'll accept any conditions that I can

"Walk with mo into the s-arden, then,"
said the jr'u. l

I had no brothers, but I had n playmate

As we grew older his parents, who were
rich, forbade him to visit our house. We
met in the fields. We , loved each other
and would not bo separated. His father
learned that wostiH mot and was very an-

not understand why that should make us
enemies when w.o loved each other; and
Emilo deolarod that ho would not neglect
me, if Ids filllier did shut his doors against

father and you shall come to me, and then
wo shall librer be rJartcd nrain." It was
hard for mo toconsent.bnt Emile insisted,
and we took leave of each other, and he
did runaway. : It was along time before

"Only once, sho answered.
' "Do you know where he is now?"
"No, indeed; if wo did wo would not
stay here long!"
"Havo you ever written to him?"
'.'Wo do not know his name. Ho has

"What makes voU so confident that you

I madd this inquiry, hoping . it might
lead tosomo explanation of tjie pink dress
and apple-selling mystery. She understood
my look and tone of curiosity, and answer
.: "That will explain to' you tho . romance

for fear we might miss each other."
"But why sell apples in tho street?" said
I, with a look of admiration for hor devo

merit of being sure to keep its pniu'.ed
Tiiose womon mako tho best wives who
conioino common senfo with good temper;
wno nave Dcen brought up to help them
selves, and who bring sound constitutions,
equable spirits, nnd a sincere afleetio'n, as a
dowry to their lovers; A wife should bo
her husband's best friend sho should bo
competenHo counsel him in difficulties, to
encer mm in sorrow, to render his every
day hearth tlfb pleasantest spot to him to
bo found anywhere. If she has confirmed
ill health, she cannot be all this to him;
neither can she if she has acrooked temper,
or habits of indolence, or is deficient in
practical sense. The woman wh-e whole
heart is devoted to show to company,
or to idlo accomplishments, may possibly
make an interesting belle, but she U sure
to prove a very indifferent wife. We would
not have young girls neglect tho beautiful
entirely; but that which adorns should be
mado subservient to some mora solid su
perstructure. To know how to play tho
last new air, yet ba ignorant how to com
pound tho last new pudding, is surely un
pardonable. An man might as well neg
lect to learn a business, ns a woman refuse
to acquire a knowledge of housekeeping.
It is useless to disguise the' fact that
girls are too often directed to attract lovers
rather than to retain tha affection of hus
bands. This is especially true of tho daugh
ters of families above the nceRsily of dttilv
labor. Mrs. F., the successful mechanic's
wife, makes a virtual slave of hcisclf, by
drudging late and early, in order that Au
na Maria may bo 'brought tip.'as she phra
ses it 'lika a lady.' The young miss, ac
cordingly, is frammed with music.dancing
i'rench, and other fiJdle-faddlt-s, is told
always tocarry her - shoulders back, and
never to romp, and is taught to consider
work as degrading. l hat Sort of a wife
can such a creature make. If she marries
anybody but a rich man, her idle nnd ex
pensive habits keep him always poor. If
she catches a prize, which, perhaps, one
in a thousand may do, ten to one sho soon
disgusts her husband. In another case
she is always out ofhealth.the consequence I

The 'Prince.' a magnificent new rcrew-
steamer, of 2,700 tuns, carried i ut the
other day, to Kalaklava. the 40. h itegi-
ment, all the winter clothing for the troops
engaged in the 6:gc, including 40,000
great-coats, flannel suits, under-clothing,
socks and gloves; beef, pork, and other
provisions; hospital stores for Scutari; and
a vast quantity of shot and shell to carry
on the siege. These are wholly lost, and
nothing remains of the.Vmre but half a
dozen of ,her numerous crew, who man
aged to get on the cliffs, when she was
'broken to powder' against them. The
Resolute, with nine hundred tuns of gun
powder, also went to the bottom. . Thus,
it seems, all the materials for carrying on
the siege and -providing against 'the se
verity of the wirtier.have been carried off
at one fell swoop; and, even if we think
to content ourselves with merely main
taining our position on U bights before
Scbnstopnl, it is evident that we are not
in a condition to stand our worst foe, the
coming winter. Everything seems to
have conspired, under a mysteriou? idis
pensation of Heaven, to make the loss of
the Prince the greatest possible disaster.'
m , .
'Figures are but feeble language for the
description of such a catastrophe, but
the value of the Prince, as she floated, is
put nt 150,000, and her cargo at half a
million. There must have been nearly
200 souls on board. The thirty trans
ports, utterly lost, with most of tbeir
crews, at Balaklava, are put down:stj
15,000 each. So here at once a million j
ot money went to the bottom, in a form
of which money conveys but a faint idea.
Tbe other losses enumerated above, the
French ship-of-thc-line and war steamer,
the transports lost on the western toast,
tho many vessels of all kinds disabled,
make up another million to be added to
the naked pecuniary estimate of the loss.
But the true way of stating it is, that the
army is utterly disabled for the present,
and left to no other protection than Heav
en and thnt valor which the British sol
diers is ever sure to display in the face of
tbe greatest difficulties, the direst priva
tions and the most overwhelming -numbers.
Yet, never was the ancient valor
of our race put to so tremendous a trial.' r
