TEN MINUTES TOO LATE. TALE WITHOUT A MORAL. I hiive always "been lute all my life. I liogiin it ly lieing ton minutes late for a title and fortune. In this wise it linp dened: My motlieryVter ten years of mariiiigPt during which time she had not nmde the Klightest nttetniit at pre sent ing my fsther with an heir, suddenly announced that she had great hopes of, in time, supplying him with the lnucli desired hlosNing. (ireat hopes thev jiroved themselves to he, for one lovely June morning, she not only conferred on my father one son, hnt'being deter mined to do nothing by halves, ten min utes nftei-wnrds 11 second made his np pearance. The eldest son was at once HaniH'd as sm-lij- and invested ; with ia, piece of blue ribbon which I should think formod a pleasing contrast with the crimson wrist it adorned that no mistake as to his identity should occur, while I, not heincr exne'eted. r-nmo nIT second-best in honor itnd attention, and went shares' in nil the goods "the gods had provided for mv brother i. e., his moo, jus cioines and Ins cradle. Of course we were the'image of each other, mid being strongly impressed with the fact we naturally grew up to admire each other intensely. I never, however,, quite forgave him for giving me the go by in my entrance into life, until he squared matters by out-running mo1 iii another race, which proved more to my advantage than the first; ' It is this ad venture which I am about to, relate, , , First, it is necessary 'to te'lf you that through a whim of .mother's, we were christened by the ' respective names of Charles and Charlewqpd;, my father's name was Manners; my mother, having been an heiress of the name of Comp ton, had conferred it, ' with' herself, 'on my grateful father, whose acres before his marriage were not equal to his an cestry, aud whose barouetcy , ,was ,ber stowed upon him' by. an impoverished monarch, who received in exchange an equivalent, and rather more, in the coin of his realm. '.. Such being the case,' the doubl pntronymic of Compton Manners descended to the twin, offspring of the illnsTions, couple aforementioned, and remained, their undisputed ; possession: as my mother, after that supreme and highly- successful effort of maternity, rested on. her laurels, so to speak; and no other child arrived to share 'my for tune as a younger son. , I have pot men tioned that it was a 'whim of my moth er's to call us both by christian names beginning with the same letters, and the same whim caused her to increase, if possible, the likeness between us, by dressing ns exactly alike. Uf course, this created endless confusion, but luck ily when we had both attained the acre of twelve vcars, my hair grew rapidly darker, while my brother's retained its rich auburn color. This, at once, great ly to my mother's disgust, proclaimed a difference between ns, though We. pos-. sessed the same blue eyes, dark eye lashes and regular features. I pass ever the school-days at Harrow, a year at Christ church, and, finally, as we would have it so, our first separation, my brother Charley getting his commis sion in the gnards, while I contented myself with one in the rifle brigade: and I had not bceii Jn that most edifying and steadiest of dear old regiments for a month before I became fully convinc ed that the guards were nowhere as compared with it, and not for gold un told would I bavq exchanged my dark green there is really as much green about it as there is in a London square for the grander trappings of the house hold troops. 1 When I was about two and twenty, it chanced that my brother's battalion of guards and my battalion of the rifle brigade were ordered to Montreal, we preceding the guard bj a few ;wek. Jt happened to be about the time that a certain political outbreak was feared, and soon &fter our arrival In Montreal I ) was eont on detaobswbtf to country town to frighten the disaffected inhabi tants into good behavior. This proceed' ing, strange to say, gave great delight to some of them, though I fear it was on ly the female portion of the town of Ag nesville, Canada West, who hailed our advent, not only as a protection, bnt ns a break -in the monotony of an other wise decidedly dull country town. Yon must know that in. those Jays of youth mid folly, dear reader, I prided myself on an unexceptional taste 111 beauty, and to keep up my supposed credit for this I Went systematically to work to ascer tain who was the belle par excellence before I fixed on any young lady as 'my "muflin" during our stay in Agnesville. For the first week I flirted generally; the second week ' I began to reduce the circle of my acquaintance; the third found me in a state of waver between two beauties, and by the end of the first month I was, figuratively speaking, on my knees before Miss Marguerite l)uval, who, I had now quite made up my mind, was one of . the most lieautiful, as well as one of the most innocent and simple minded of her sex. Who could doubt the fact for an instant who had been per mitted the felicity of gazing at her? When with her, I felt inspired like Mon trose, "To maka her glorious by my pen, and famous by my sword." ,1 When I was away from her don't be shocked my sentimental reader I felt as it I had had nothing to cat tor a fortnight, followed by an extraordinary tendency toward Villa Duval. This, I suppose, was sympathetica! electricity. Let me descsibe her 5 let me in fact, make her glorious by my pun, as the sub stitute ot a rifle, I fear precludes tbe possi bility of h inning her lame by other means. She was tall and slight very slight. Now this si ghlites is to my mind, al most a faull in a Canadian beauty, and it is in the one respect ol figure that the English maidens excel their Canadian sisters. Imploring your pardon for this digression, lei me proceed with my por trait. Very slight, with a graceful piqu ant head, crowned with quantities of silky hair, mussed in an extraodinary and luyti rious way, nil loops ai.d twists, and coils and sunshine. No it was not dyed, and it was not bought. SUts tainted in my arms once, and though it came tum bling down in glorious and gulden con tusion, it did not tumble of!'. These won ml tresses, were cut siraiglit across the lorehead a la Vandyke. 1 am aware that this way 01 arranging the hair is geuer slly'comdeinned as "bad style," but it was not as common then its il is now, and I boldly say, nothing' can be mora, booming when it forma a fair and silken fringe, over a soft, young forehead and dark penciled eyebrpws,'1 As lor the eyes, II is simply impossible to describe them. Tlioy were evei yihiug by turns and noth ing long. - - Ys, they were? always beau tiful melting, burning, laughing, loving, scoiuing. .They wert), large, they were brown, with very large, diluting irides, and they were guarded by a double file of lashes, long, soft, and almost black, and as I write, these, words in praise ol her wonderful eyes, helping my memory by aglancJm'a vignette by Not man that does them but team justice, the recollec tion of them even now will stir the blood III my veins, and cause my heart to beat almost ns lumnluiously as if I were once more 'gating into their unfathomable depths in the conservatory, or, to use Maggie's own words, "the Flintorium," at Ville Duval. ; It niMsl not be supposed that I was 'al lowed undisputed possesion of the first place in 'Miss Marguerite ' Duval's ' aflVc lions. Had lluit been 1 he case, I ask my self, looking back as' I do now over an in lerveniiig liipse of jjrjic, hoiy long should 1 liitvc valued such s'ufitury p issession ? And I answer after reflection, and always taking the lapse of lime into considera tion, 1101 an hour I 1 should have cer taitily have sent in my resignation, which she "-wVhiH r have accepted as grace fully as she did everything, from boqneis id br'afcelefs,' wit h n. ' faint sigh, ' perhaps over the fickleness of mankind generally and soldiei kind individually. Jiut Miss Duval was iever,dooiuel to receive mor tification ai my hands; She had swarms of admirers, some of whom were declar ed lovers, and I who was very young and very foolish aud not .a little vain, actually allowed myself to be aggravated iii I u falling in love with bur; 1 really can not describe the 'process' in any other way, and .the, amount of excitement I weut, Ihi'LUgh in keeping my-place among my rivals and my anxiety always to be Hist by Iter side almost cured-me ol my etily tailing. - - " When the rifle brigade, or to ue .the Agnesville abreviutio'n, ,"the brigade," had been quartered there two months, it was agitated among us that a ball to our hospitable eiitcrtaiiie'rav would n)ot only bo right and proper, but' politio--in faci the only thing wauling to-restore coin plelly aud iniiuediatly that, loyal stale ol feeling that once existed 1 in Agnesville. We at once called a- meeting to discuss and settle this important matter with out more delay, as we were in tear of be ing recalled to headquarters immediately, now that the Fenian panic seemed to have abateik After the question of funds had been discussed, and we had nil de clared our readiness to place our enor mous loi tunes al the disposal of the mess committee, (he next question was moot ed as to "when" aud "where ?" "When? Nexi week," was the an swer fro 111 one of the younger and more eui husiasik) of the 1'rince Consort's own. "Where ? In the Ayhner's hall, to be sure, not in ibis wielclied 1 rat hole they call a barrack." The first part of this suggestion was negatived as impossible by the steadier members of our council, the second was taken into consideration and ultimately carried without a dissenting voice. "The bait was finally fixed for thai day fort night at Ayluier's hall, a tolerably good sel of public reception rooms in the heart of the little town which were used for slate affair and small entertainments, and called Ayluier's hall, after a former Canadian governor of that name who bad passed through the lowu during its erec tion. ; It wu tbe day before tbaflluwd lor ' onr ball, and when my arduooa duties were over, I drove ontlo Villa Duval to see la belle Marguerite. Il was lovely weather in early spring, and tbe delicate, tender, green gran aud foliage was an tnexpressi'ile relief after the endless wea rying miles of snow we had been gazing on and walking over for mouths. The sun had already nttaiued considerable heat, and when I reached my destination I found the jalousies close.!, the awnin spread over the balconies, and s.ime of the inhabitants of the villa asscubleil nt dcr the colonnde, while the more venture some were rcturniiiff to croquet" With all the zest that a long interval devoted to ul t- and toboggin was likely to inspiie them with. " ., . , i wa received with a considerable de gree of enthusiasm, and a flattering in crease of color on Maggie's fair cheeks as she led hi r game and came forward, mallei in hand, to greel mo. I was not little annoyed, however, when I dis covered in a young man who was her partner in croquet, one of my brother officers as I had hoped I should reign supreme on this occasion and did not fancy the espionage now and the chaff afterwards, that would most assuredly be my lot, I therefoie rather suriily re fused Marguerites request that I should joiu ibeir parly on the lawn, and throw inj myself lazily on a rtii; that was spread under the colonade, devoted myself to a younger sister of my niehuntr.-ss, who, for her age scarcely sixteen had a very fair idea of .flirting. Miss Eunice wat kept, as a rH, in the background, and how heartily she enjoyed on this occa sion being tirft instead of second I could see by tht dimples around the mouth and the quiver of the dark eyelashes, in spite ol her efforts to look ile'mtire. My back was turned on the croquet party, but I could see the whole scene reflected ponorama-like in the plate glass of the window in front of me and in spite of my excess 01 temper 1 was not a little amused al the evident pique which Mag gie endeavored to hide by apparent ab sorption in her game, and I was as usual irresisiably fascinated by her grace, ami the perfect foot she displayed in Ihc rap id ni" emcnis emailed by the Vagaries ol croquet, . Meanwhile Euuico did It Mfe inretteu to perfection, and while her -little while fingers moved rapidly, through her tat ting or some other pretentions work she was erigaged in, her eyes anil tongue were not slothful. "And you will, you promise'me, won't you Mr. Manners ?" she said ending with these words a 1 torrent of vivacious non sense about her first ball and Iter fears that I should be too grand to dance "Willi such a stupid little thing as me, you know." 'Yes, you poor little Cinderilla, I will do anything in the world, to please yon," I rfplied returning her soft' glance .'with interest, and in absurdly tender tones; for i could see in my impromptu looking-glass that Maggie was approaching and probably within earshot. Eunice to do her justice looked a little astonished, and, I fancy received an ad monishing look from her sister, lor she got up and went into the house, saying something about ordering tea, aud then Maggie and 1 were left to a certain ex tent, alone, s. the house was a square surrounded by a piazza, the step or two 1 nan iHKen in rising ttail carried me around one corner of it, a . newly leafed ana ihickly-growing Virginia creeper screening us from lhn rt'Sl of the party. There was silence for a moment and then she said, "Coniu and see the moii- , Dear me J how many tete-a-tete visits we paid that monkey; aud how very lit tle 'attention that small representa tive of our former inglorious but tin Irammeled stale ever received ! In that day Mr. Darwin's theory had not attained its present beauiilul perfection; had such been the case, what iuexbaustble resource of scientific art-augment would that little animal have suggested to us! As il was, in my foolish, and I must add, .insolent, ignorance of the close connection be tween ourselves and thai little gibbering nut-cracker, I wondered how god, who had created so frightful a parody 011 man, could have devised so beauiilul a crea lure as the fair woman who stood beside me, holding ou. her delicate snow-white hand to be emptied of its treasure of nuts hy a black paw with cuived nails, and hairy cuticle. . I'm don litis little digression; perhaps the reason of our undue partiality for the monkey was thai he lived iu a house suit able as to size, al the end of a long ave nue, which bouse by a fortunate coinci dence, and a lucky contrivance ot art aud nature, was uot visible from any window of the villa ; moreover by keep ing under the piazza lor a yard or so, we douid diverge Iroot thence Into I Ins ave nue willi out any one from the oilier side being -the wiser. Alter a few mo ments spent in laying iu a stock ot nuts tor Dolly we started cautiously aud rap idly 011 ourliule excursion. " We must not be long," said Maggie, "for tea will be ready directly, aud I guess I shall be wanted." "It may be the last lime I shall ever see the monkey, I said pathetically, not 111 the leual seeing bow ridiculous my re mark inusi kouud. I have since thought how well Maggie resisted ihe temptation lb laugh thai must have assailed her, for she had a strong sense of the ridicu lous. She replied, without a muscle of her face moving : "Capt. Johnstone was telling ns you expect to be recalled soon, but I hope it is only a false report. We should miss you all really I" 'I don't supposo you'd care," said I, shaking the basket of nuts so energetic ally that two or three hopped out on the gravel path and necessitated our both stooping to pick them up. If two faces did get close together for a second, what matter? There was only ' Dolly, the monkey looking on, and he could uot tell tales luckily Is . "I don't suppose you'd care," said I, repeating tbe question and trying to get a peep at the eyes that were shaded by tbe envious straw bat. , She did not reply: she did far better, raised those darkly. -Ixiuged .lidf fld gaz ed fullat me. Was there tear trembling on me lasnesr There surely was, and the thought In toxicated me, 1 caught her round ,,the waist, anu drawing her unresistingly to wards me, began, "My darling!" In an other moment I should have poured my love into her car, when a rustling in the neighboring buhes and a laugh startled inc. and I had barely released Marguer ite when from behind this monkey-house appeared Johnstone and VibcHe ingenue. Maggie, who hrtd fled from ' rny grasp, had instantly regained Ticf composure, ana began to feed, poor neglected Dol ly, who was chatting and grinning, and trying with his paw stretched to its ut most length to reach the nnt," talking to inm as if she had but one thotfght in life, and that thought giving a monkey nuts. At that moment, balked as I-wa, 1 hated Eunice, Johnstone, the monkeyj everything bnt .Mauguente, whom I lov ed with a passion which astonished my self. "I came for tbe keys," said Eunice, with an aggravating pert smile and knnwii-all-about-it sort of look. "And w hat did Capt. Jonhstone come for,!" said Mauguerite, bestowing her last niit on the monkey, and speakiugin the sweetest tones imaginable. "To see your charming monkey, Miss Duval," replied Johnstot.e, siiiiliiif, "and to assist your sister in search for the key." "Hang the keys!" said I semi-anda-bly. "Yes" but that's just what Mar guerite won't recollect to do though mamma has had a nail driven in for her and all," said Eunice with a delightful simplicity. What the "all" was I was never fated to hear, for Marguerite made no more effort to renew our tcte-a-tete by dis patching her sister to the house with the said kevs in great hopes that! Cant. jonnstonc would think it necessary to escort ner on her return journey, bnt she and I were doomed to be disappoint ed, for Johnstone stuck to us preerving lv from that moment until I took leave. I only just managed, as I pressed her band at parting, to whisper, "Keep the first dance for me to-morrow night," and even this was overheard by John stone, who said: ; "He'll not be there to claim it, Miss Duval. Don't-yonwait for him; he was never known to keep an appointment, in his life," and a good deal more in the same pleasant, bantering strain. It was enough to try the patience of a saint, and as I never pretended to - be worthy of canonical honors, my reader, unless he or she happens to be blest with a super-angelic nature, niay easily picture to her or himself the horrible temper I was in when I mounted my dog-cart to return to the barracks in company with my interfering friend, Capt. Jolmstone. 1 liad, indeed, descended to the petty revenge of refusing him the lift back that he had the audacity to demand 'but the' recollection that if 1 did so, he would probably remain in my beloved's com pany until the next cur passed, made me deem it more prudent to comply. ' Johnstone was really a friend of mine and a good fellow,, but posessed, ' as I then thought, of no tact whatever. Di rectly we were off, he begau cheerily? "What's the row old fellow! Won't. she have anything to say to vou?" "I beg you will not make Miss Duval the Subject ot my loolish gesting, 1 re Dlied. with ditrnitv. '" He gave a whistle long and' low", "Why vou don't mean ' to say,' Charlie it's as serious as sail that? I am sorry I spoke." ... . I vouchsafed no reply,' bnt ! gave the inare a savage crtt.' My companion lit a cigar, nnd after a putt or two began: "littt, seriously, Manners-1 hope you are Hot caught You are far loo young and the girl lias nothing but her looks; these I admit, are good enough to turn an older head than yours; but still yon'll be a great fool to give up all your future to a pair of fine eyes. "n lint the d can it matter to vou what I do?" I retorted, further in censed by the contempt expressed for my two-and-twenty years. "And I con sider the expression you use with refer ence to being caught extremely offensive in the strongest sense of the word, to Uuval, whose name. I request may uot lie lnentioiieil 111. my presence. "Uli, these boys, these, boys, grum bled my adviser; then laying his -hand firmly on my shoulder, he said, "Now, look here Manners, you are a capital gofld fellow far too good a fellow to make a fool of yourself and quarrel with your best friend.' You are irritated just now, and not likely to tako a favorable view of my conduct. Some day you will thank me for the last hour's work. I am many years old cd t h 1111 you, and I have saved more than one Youngster from marrying in haste, ana repenting at leisure, and, by love! I'll save you, w hethcr you like it ov 10." I was provoked at his obstinacy, bnt his good-tempered face and littl twink ling eyes not unlike the monkey we had just left upset my gravity and for getting my dignity, I burst into a hearty laugh, "That's all right," 6aid my unthwart- able friend; "I see I'm forgiven, Charley. I wish at the same time, I could see any signs in your face of taking iny advice and letting the matter drop now and for ever.". I became grave again, and replied, stiffly, "I am obliged to you for your advice, Johnstone, and I um sure you mean it kindly; but I consider I am com promised and bound in honor to propose to Miss Duval; and moreover, I tell you frankly that I intend to do so, to-morrow night, at the ball." Now, to tell the truth, until that mo ment I had never quite made up my mind to take the final step; and as to compromised officers in the army, who are always running tbe blockade, so to speak, know a trick worth two of that. liut I had recovered my temper a little, and with it strong temptation bad set in to defy my self-instituted mentor. Tne latter shrugged hia -Oildsrs, and merely remarking, "That'a being all set tled, it is useless to ditcass the subject' further until the lady has x-ither accept ed or. rejected your'r changed the topio, and we talked away amicably until wo' reached oor quarter in time to dress for " mess.

Now, from : persons cprience, I should say that a good dinner, a fair al-' lowance of wine, a luxurious arm-chair, solitade and pijse, are to a mart, hower ' tr slightly in love, fuel to the flames;' and if your experience tells you the same I need hardly ssy that on this particu- 1 lar evening, under then particular cir cumstances, iny thoughts had a decided ; leaning to one subject. "Should I pro- ' pose to Marguerite Duval, or no?" Pru dence that, too often fatal enemy to . to the tender passion Said "Yes." And Love, having formidable allies before mentioned to strengthen his cause, was on the point of gaining a victory over ' his stern adversary, was recalled to a ' senac of present position bv the epcninir ' of the ante-room door, from whence dis- tasteful sounds of mirth were borne On the tobbaceo tainted air: then, as I fear- - ed, stes approached myjdoor, which I nau taken ihc precaution of locking. .I t paid no attention to a loud knocking, which, was . followed immediately by, a ' violent wrench at the handle, and'"! ar, old fellow!" . J "Well?" I growled, surlily. " ' "I sav. old fellow!" .. "Well?" (still more snrlilv, and drawn out into a prolonged tone of irritation.)

Thin tbe speaker walked oft leaving Hood mas ter ot the popiliou. .1 Hood, as, we generally call him, Hob- inwas a great ally ot mine and as good a teiiow as ever iwea ; so, repenting ot my ungraciousness, I opened my door cau tiously aiitl admitted hiu. Though I had yielded so far, I was too sulky to of fer him' my favorite arm-chair, but let , him make himself as happy as he could ' ' iu an American rocking-chair, with his " fiet upon anoihcr.

"I'll give you '. some of this delectable beverage," aud you'll be all square in no time at all. ' . Having taken a dose of that remedy of the British sub against all evils, I became more aim able, and we both began to smoke.
