I think it could hardly ho Bnid thnt I lcfirued tho lesson nt nil, becnuso to lovo him seemed nntnrnl, ri pin t of life, not to bo dissovorcd from it, from my onrlicst recollection. Wo shared joys nnd sports, wept together over tho loss of our pots, which John helped mo bury. Wc nt tonded tho siuno school, studied from tho same books, and rend tho snino ele gant essays from tho English Header, with tho samo high pitched drawl. John was m' devoted slave, and I, inciniont connotto from my earliest recollection, tyrannized over and tor montcd him, freezing him with my in difference, or warming him in tho gra cious light of my smiles, as suited my mood and purpose. It is a mistako to supposo that there aro coquettes only in tho highor walks of sociuty, or that coquetry is tho out growth of advanced civilisation. The truth is, that it is a natural instinct with most women, and is oftou devel oped oven in childhood, as in my case. ' Wo woro poor people, living down ' by tho sea, subsisting partly on our fisheries, partly by the cultivation of our half barren sand farms, and only ' subsisting by this union of mniiue and ' agricultural pursuits. Wo had no I culture, littlo knowledge. Our teach- j ors woro nature, who woro for us one , of her most forbidding aspects, and i such persons of our own class as strove j to eko out tho means of livelihood by I "keeping school" for a few months of t tho year, in tho old brown schoolhouso , which stood among the sand knolls I half a mile from tho sea. To this ! humblo temple of learning, peoplo llockod from tho fish ors' hamlet by tho shoro, and from tho scattered farm houses that dotted the barren region. John Lawry was a fanner's son, and I was a fisherman's daughter. Wo woro homespun and wont barefooted. Of! course wo were not learned in any of j tho artificial modes of society. We know only the ruder and simpler forms of lifo. And yet I was u coquette, and I gavo Jonu Heartaches as real as any devotee of societv over iuilictod or felt. Thoro aro some natures with whom submission only loads to encroach ment. Mino was ono of those. If John had resisted, or stood upon his own rights, 1 should lmvo yielded. Hut ho allowod mo to feel my power, and it was too swoet to bo relin quished. As wc advanced toward manhood and womanhood, the chains were but riveted more firmly. I became moro ' arrogant and John moro yielding, and it was but Huldoin that I did not find i myself victor in any diflcreuco of plan 1 oY opinion that aioso between us. j Were I to toll tho exact truth, ij would own that I always experienced ! a moro heartfelt nsspoct for John when he resisted my tyranny. Womau-ua-1 turo is an anomaly. Woman loves to I reigu, but she prefers, as a lover or n ' husband, one who is manly and doin-1 inant Yielding and weakness belong , to her sex, and nro not quitu rospecta-1 bio in the other. It is good fun, rare sport, to tyrannize over one's lovers, J out it is a sort oi recreation mat ono tires of. It is not the real business of our lives. I havo hoard, in thoso later yoars, of certain women, who, with groat ver bosity and pcrsevoranco, demand what , thoy aro pleased to name the rights of j their sex. I know that I shall be 1 deemed heretical by theso in what I say, but I havo lived a long h'fe, in j which circumstances have ruado mo i thoughtful and observant. 1 boliovo mau to be the dominant sex, and though I would not for one instant up hold in him tho defrauding of woman in her mothorhood, her property, or the emoluments of labor. 1 do not ac knowledge for her tho possession of any rights which sho has not tho capa city nnd tho power to maiutaiu. JJut when I commenced writing about John and myself, nothing was farther from my thoughts than to be led into a disquisition upon tho rights of woman. All I wanted to say was, that I bcliovo a woman respects a solf asscrtiug man moro than a timid one, and really profers, at least when sho begins tolivo earnestly, to yield rather than to roign. If sho reigns, sho do sires rather that it shall bo through tho affections than as a matter of right. As I havo said, I always respected John most in his moments of resis tance, but I was not tho less loth to seem to yield. I win disposed always to havo my own way, and would toler uto no objection from him. It came to pass, in tho course of the years, that a railroad approached tho sea not far from our hamlet, and this brought, especially in tho summer time, an inllux of strangers iuto our neighborhood. Half a mile from our hamlet, and farther down tho littlo bay at whoso mouth it stood, there was a lino ilat beach lying along a sheltered covo, which afforded admirable bath iug. Some speculator or company erected at this place it largo hotel, which, closed and comfortless many months of their year, was soon a crow ded resort during tho summers. Tho building of this hotel caused great changes in our neighborhood, but tho two families which woro inost ly affected by it were that of John's fathor and my owj). 1 havo 6aid that Mr. Lowry was a farmer, and ho was in fact an agricul turist of rare judgment for thoso parts. No farm in tho county was moro pro ductive, aud ho now found a ready and profit ablo market for wfmtovcr ho had to sell, whilo hiB neat farmhouso often opened its doors to accommodate guests who could not obtaiu rooms ut tho hotel. Altogether, immediately ! hotel.

Wo had many words upon this lat ter point, and would that I had then acted more in accordance with tho real feelings of my heart. But my vanity was lluttorod by, tho hulf-pntrouizing homage I rocelved, and the habit of tormenting my lover wns too firmly fixed to allow mo to forego any oppor tunity. I profosscd groat indignation with John for presuming to question any nets of mine, at the same time that I wns secretly plon&cd at this now proof of his love. I regretted all that I had said and done very much, when John was sud denly called away from home to accept a position in the counting-house of n wealthy distnnt relative in tho city, who wns now, in their day of prosper ity, willing to acknowledge nnd pat ronize the Lowry family. This was the first timo thatNvo had been separat ed for more than a few weeks or months nt a timo, nnd I folt very much saddened nt tho thought of parting. With my usual perversity, however, I pretouded to think lightly of it, aud refused to bind mysolf to any promis es to refrain from ilirtiug with strnng ors. I told John that I choso to bo free till I was married, and that if he pre sumed again to interfere with my do ings I would withdraw my pledges to him. Wo parted thus he to sadness, I to regrets equally unavailing. I had nevor loved John so much. I saw much in his character that power fully attracted mo, and the memory of tho past had a charm which nothing could break. Always whon I thought that ho was mine, a warm feeling of happiness possessed mo. He so calm, so kind, so gontlo to my waywardness, with such a reserved power in him, so handsome, too, and so proud of me ! Others flattered me, he alouo lovod. And yot, not o'on lor him, and this true lovo of him, would I refrain from my coquottish ways. No sooner did Aylmor Barton again make his appcar anco nt tho cove, than I ilirted with him as much as ever. John wroto mo begging mo to bo ware of him, and told mo that no girl could safely trust such ns ho. 1 did not notico this letter, nor sovernl oth ors that followed in tho same strain. But I walked an I sailed with Aylmor Barton moro than before, and let him spend hours nt our cabin. Ho was rich, and handsome, and fashionable. Tho bolls nt tho covo woro wild for his smiles, cheap enough for me, tho poor fisher's daughter, whom thoy scorned. So I went on in my mad courso till tho result I might havo expected anno. John wroto that ho could not, in far thor silonco, allow tho fair nniuo of his betrothed to bo miiiglod with that of ono so dissolute. Ho remonstrated, ho reproached, aud finally ho deman ded it cessation of tho intercourse. For nil roply, I eont back his letters, and tho littlo gold botrothal ring I woro, and almost wept my heart away whon they were gono. A fow days later Ayhncr Barton mot nio on tho bouuh. and spoke to mo words I could not brook. I drove j wedding him Ifom mo and novor spoko to him i doath again. I only remember tho remain der of that summer ns a dreary blank ofunbrokou lonoliness nnd sadness. I heard nothing from John, nnd I lost all interest in tho outor WQrld. We moved early that autumn to the following our marriage. o spent sovernl yoars in Europe, mostly upon the shores of tho Mediterranean. By that time ho wns fully restored, and we returned to our native country. Tho Horton family, who had conio to look upon mo as Gornld's savior, wol coniod mo with oion Arms. Tin vol, reading, association with refined minds, had removed from mo all traces of my honioly origin, aud there was nothing to sliauio them. And I wns calmly happy. In a quiet way I loved my husband. I strove honestly to do right, nnd I had my reward. I no longor desired to triumph over my former lover. I folt ouly regret and self-condemnation when I thought of the past, aud I was glad when 1 learned he had removed to a distant city, and thnt thoro was littlo proba bility that wo should meet again. The shadows that had passed athwart my onrly lifo .had snddoncd me. My husband was grave nnd roti centf nnd we lived a quiet, serene life. His lovo for mo never waned. It was tender, and grntoful. Undemonstra tive himself, ho did not expect effusion from mo, and I do not ' eliove an un satisfied doubt over crossed his mind. He knew my early lovo, but 1 boliovo ho thought I had forgotten and out lived it, as I did strive to do, nnd us I, too, boliovod I had. Few married pairs nro moro serenely happy than wo wcro, and few survivors mourn mora sincoroly than I mourned, whon, in tho forty-first year of our marriage, Gerald was suddenly removed from my side, Whon he was gono I undo no chnngo in my mode of lifo. An un married sister of his one who had been with him at tho Cove resided with me, quietly advancing, as I was, to a sereno old age. Fifteen calm and poncoful years passed, aud then she, too, died, and I was loft alone. My parents had departed years be fore I know not that my blood red dened tho voins of any creature. The desolation of ago full upon me. I had reached my allotted threo scoro and ten, nnd pnssed it by livo years. I re flected that a very brief timo must eloso tho scone, and though my calm lifo had left me with almost unim paired vigor, I found my chief solaco in tho thought that death could not bo far away. I think I inust havo fallon into a morbid condition of mind in my lono liness. How long I romnined' thus I can hardly say, but somo tidings camo to tno ono day that roused mo to lifo, and loft mo no longor anxious for tho coming of death. I heard from John. K35 An Irishman on board n vessel at the point of foundering, being de sired to go on deck as sho wns going down, replied that ho had no wish to go up there "to seo himself drowned." A man should novor bo ashamed to own thnt he has been in the wrong, which is but saying in othor words, that ho is wiser to-day than ho was yesterday. "Fray, can you tell me what that man was hanged for tho hthor day ?" said an Irishman to an ac quaintance whom ho happened to meet. ' Foigery, I believe,'" was tho answer. "The devil it was !" returned Faddy, ' why, Murphy told mo it was suicide !" tkr If wc would havo powerful minds; we must think; if wo would have faithful hearts, wo must lovo; ifj wo would havo muscles, wo must la bor; and theso threo thought, love, labor include all that is valuable in life. fjgf "Can you do nil sorts of casting hero ?" said a solemn looking chap nt tho Iron Works tho o;her day. "Yes," said Fiank, preparing to tako his or der; "all sorts." "Well, then," re turned the solomn inquuor, "I would like to havo you cast a shadow," Ho was immediately cast out. A gentleman, woll known in tho inotrojiolis, was always complain ing to his father-in-law of his wife's temper. At last, pnpa-in-law, becom ing very wearied by these endless grumblings, nnd being a bit of a wag, replied: "Well, my dear fellow, if 1 hear of her tormenting you any more, I will disinherit her." Tho husband novor again complained. tho stewardess, nnd carries tho keys. A cook is employed generally a man and several servants besides, who nro all under tho control of tho stew ardess.

Ono day a man from St. Louis came to offer ono for sale, stat ing that his prico was ninety dollars. Brighinii bought it, promising to pay tho man whenever ho should call. Tho man being poor, called in a few days. Ho did not got his pay. Ho called again, a number of times, with the same result. Ono of tho wives became- quito indignant, and snid: 'If I was in his place, I never would ask it from ono so high in the priesthood. Ho had better givo it to him than to ask pay of him.' The poor man nev er received his money, and soon as ho could get tho means left tho territory. This is the manner in which tlio Prophet becomes possessed of much of his property.

At tho theatre, Brigham and ono or two of tho fa vored wives sit together in tho 'King's box,' but tho remainder of tho women nnd tho children sit in what is called 'Brighnm'8 corral.'

Gentiles, with whom tho saints nro on good terms, aro well received and kindly enter tained at theso parties, and all join in giving themselves up to the influoucea of mirth nnd festivity. Dancing is hoc ouly a favorite amusomcnt, it is more; it is cultivated to such nn extent that it becomes a passion. Brigham's women, though bettor clothed than formerly, still work very hard. They are infatuated with thoir lotter from one of tho bureaus of the Wnr Department, which ho had been directed to deliver to Gen. Scott at once of course to his ndjutnnt-geii-oral or chicf-of-staff. Tho willing but not well-learned volunteer interpreted his order literally, however; and carelessly giving tho salute, began: "O, general, hero's a paper I want you to look at before jo;i-.''

Tho President immediately went to meet him, and directly returned with tho lieutenant-general leaning on his arm. It was a sight worth something to sec. Tho crowd in front of tho house saw it, was hushed in reverenco a moment, and then broke out into a hearty clap ping of hands. The general stepped to tho front and raised his chnppeau in acknowledgment. At this instaut tho baud struck up "Hail to tho Chief," while tho peoplo continued their plaudits.
