Thine be:itiuil bride grew pale-the de. cisive hour had come. Sie pressed her white hands together, and the leaves of the bridal wreat h trembed on her pure brow; her breath came quicker, her heart beat wilder. Yes 31arion, lty aside your scruples for this once," said the Judge inn at lowv tone, go ing towards his dallgiter, ' the company ex pect it ; do not so seriously infringe upon the riles if etiquette; itn yottr own home act as you please; but inl mine, for thisonee, please me." Fvery eve wvas turned towards the hrdal pair. Marini's prniciples were well known.

" I see," she added, slowly, pointig o'ne jewelled finger at the sparking Ity liquid-" a sigIt tiat ieggars all de scription ; and yet listen-I will paint it for you if I can.

Thecre was a hush in thaut princely panlor, broken ontly my whtat seetmed a stmothnered sob) from somue manly bosom. Thie bridle stood yet upright, with quivering lip, and tears stealing to the outward edge of her lashes. Her beautiful arm had lost its ten sion, and the glass, with its little troubled red waves came siowly towards the range of hner visiont. Sine spoke again ; every lip was tmute. Her voice was low, faitnt, yet awflul ly distitnet; site still fixed her sorrowful glatnce upon tite wine-cup. I" It is evening now; the great wihite moon is conming up, and its beams lay gently on Ihis forehtead.

Deatn -and no soft hand, no gentle voice to bless atnd soiothe him. His head siniks back! one coinvuisive shudder ! he is dead !" A groan ran through the assembly, so vv idwas her deset iption, so utearthly her look, so insptiredl her tmatnner-thtat-whtat site de scribed, seemed actutally to have taken place then annd there. Thiey noticed also thant thte bridegroom bmid his face in his hantds and was I weepiang n "Da" te ..epented matin, her lips sjIive:ing~ fister, and her voice more and iore broken; " and there they scoop him a grave: and there, w itliout a shroud, they l:v him down in Ilat damtp, reeking earth.

It. A. D. SOCIAL MANNtERS IN AMERTCA. HINTS Foil LADIES AND GENiLE . The New York Post hims been ipermitted to I print a few extracts from n utiptiubli-hed . manuscript on social matiners ill thik countrY, from which we take the fullowing hints to I ladies and geitleien: When you heara man insisting upon pr it.; of etiquette and fashion ; wondering, f1or in. stance, how periople can eat with steel forks and survive it, or what charms existence has for persons who dine at three without soup... af bh ein tt t didfaljs o Sei M the table cloth is no, the place to put your 0 5alt. Bread is the only comestibl which the etnstom of well-bred people permits to ie laid off from your phlte. 1 If you break a vast; or statuelte, or anY it little etagere knick-knack in the house of an, aqliinitince, never miid it. Treat it as a matter of no conseqnencve ; even if you know that it wrings his pocket. b Always precede a lady in going tip stairs. This inaxii is a legacy rrom a maiden aunt. When vou enter a public room the French a practice ot raixing the hat, as a general sal- i titition, is mnch to be commended. I Never ask your wife to sing for a friend. Ten to one lie detests vocal music, unless oh 0 the highest order. Show, but do not show b) off, your children to strangers. Recollect in the matter of children how man vare born (i every hour, each one almost as reimarkable as yours in the eyes of its papa and mam ma. It is har.l to say which has the most elown- h ish appearanuce ; to move the lips in silent read ing ; or to wet the tinge~r ini turnling over g the le'aves of the book. Do not go to an evening party ini blackn gloves even if youi have lost a relation. If your feelings are too deeply lacerated for yellowv kids, stay at home. Keep youri nails cut short. None but b~ar her's boys and blacklegs are entitled to the distinctiont of a long Chiniese talon. When presented, never ofrer your hatnd ; if offered to you on such an occasion, touch it slighitly. Wlhien you meet a friend in a public place, I do0 nort shiout his name so that every by stander may know who lie is. Never ask a frientd the ptrice of a thing lie has bought, nor prais things by their prices. Cultivate the good will of wveakc-minded, tatlkaitive people. Thley will lbe as uiseful as| the parrots ot A psethus. lie taught his birdsj to repeatt "' A p ethuis is a god,"' and let them'i fLy. Yonr unifeathered bipeds can be taught i by a lit tle kindnecss and attention, and taunghti without pains, to proclaim in house antd high- I way. " illank is an excellent fellow." If this, is said often enough, no matter by whiom, some one is sure to believe it. Moderation is the best general rule for con duct in social life. Moderaitionlii inmanners, modheraltibn in language, moderation ini dress, mioderationi in feelinig, moderation in every, thing but personal ineatness. With these, a kind atnd yielding spirit, and a decent shatre of self-resp~ect, a man cani gtid~e smoothly through the world, if not pletaantly. Otto last cousel-a hard one to follow-learn to grow old gracefully. S.vE YOUR EAnsIGss.-Thie practice which apprentices, clerks, amid others have, of spending their earnings as fast as they accumulate, is one great reason why so many never attain a positioni above mnedi oertyinlie.A peso wvho receives but a small cmensatiotn for his services, will, with a little care over his exchequer, and a system of regularity in his expeniditures, find at the end of the year lie is prepared to en couniter ally enmergencey or mishap. But, asI a general thing, they mantage to get rid of their earninigs qtuite as quick ias they are due, thus leavinig them wholly un~preptared for emergetncies, by sickness or otherwise.

There is nothing true that is niot be tiful. It wvas in searching for beauty ti truth was discovered. T1'ux timid are never free. ad The 1nmber for the first quarter lis ar. he rived, and presents a varied table ofcontents. nThe fifth article, on American Slavery and Emancipation bty the Free States, is one to which we, and every other true Southern man, have a right andh onght to object. r- -The effect which this article is caleulated to have upon the minds of those already pre. jiiliced against the institution is to strength. o en and confirm that opposition. It is a at subject with which, we believe English au thors, editors and statesmen have nothing to m do. When it relates to the Southern States, it is an assumption of power which they n, ought not, and should not presume to take, isbut it seems that the English people, as well ,s the Northern peoplo, are determined to press the i sue of this question upon the people of the South, uitil it will crime either to a total emancipation of the slaves n -a relinquishment of every right guaran 'Iteed in the Constitution under which we d live, or a determination to maintain our rights under any, and at every sacrifice. s This article is a highly offensive one, and we do riot hesitate to condemn it, and place e the Westminster Review where it belongs. among the incendiary publications of the it North, and as a fit companion for the even. - ing fireside of Horace Mann, Garrisen & e Co. Southern men have no business to patronize it, and Southern Editors who puff it ought to he indicted. It is true we have, in necordance with the terms proposed by Leonard Scott & Co., advertised the B.itish Reviews, &c., in common with many of our brethren of the Press. And they have sne ceeded in obtaining a large amount of no. toriety, which is all they want, and we have i done what we ought not to have done, and shall not do ngain, and therefore shall cease * our advertisements, and shall e'ideavor, so far as we can, to undo what we may have P unne towards assisting in the circulation of 7 these outrigeous publications, and now beg r our friends, one and all, to cease their pa. tronage to all and every publication of such ilk as the Westminster and Blackwood, etc. e We believe the doctrines they inculcate are highly injurious and dangerous to the peace and well-being of our own homes and fire. sides, and no ma'n who is a man, should either countenance or suppnrt, sympathise i with or approve of any puibliction vhicb boldly asserts doctrines at variance witi his own peace and interest. It is the part of folly, gross unpardonaltle error, for the pen ple of the Southern States to give their money to the support of these periodicals reason and justice to give publicity and eir culation to falsehood and mis epresent.a tions. Such language as this ciinnot fail to r give the reader a pretty good gener.d idea - of the tenor of the article about which we are wrilting. " The South has lost its cliV alrous champion in Calhoun, its able taticia' in Clay ; there will never again he patriot with the purity and the genius of the one, who will believe that to keep the negro in chains is the destiny and ditty of his conn1 v trv ; nor a statesman with the keen penie e trating intellect of the other, who will tliik - that slavery can be propped up by protocols S or parchients; and even now there come tidings of greater loss to the South thani - even Calhoun or Clay. Death has struck S i down that man of tie North who, of all others, most kept back her pressure oil the South. Massachusetts will send no second Webster to the Senate, to help with his iron will and eloquent voice the slave States to Sgive laws to tile free. Peace be to their mmre.It seems to us that the one o themi thought that evil wvas good, and tile e other that good should give place to evil; but it is tnt for us to guestion their thnoughts . for they are far away from our qulestionings, where there is no respect of races, where othere is no " compromise" with truth, but .where there is a " higher law." e "Arnd now that they are gone, how stand sthe chanices or tile slavei Lawv and force e are ngninst him ; art, eloquenice, and geniius as are for hlimr; anmd they wvill have a quick eye for tle winnig side." This is a very moderate parngraphl, and~ we have selected it out'of many others, iS vhichi are much mtore plointed and direct itl e their attack upon our rights.

TirE " New York Times," a Free Soil p-a per, is trying to find a selfish motive for the opposition of Southern gentlemen to the annexation of Cuba. And accordingly it attributes the opposition expressed to the comparatively mild condition of slavery in the Island.. We quote: are governed eiirdy By its liering pl slavery, should be unwilling to have a State added to the Union, in which the institution exists in so modified a form ; while the op. ponents of slavery may very well favor its accession on account of the influence it would be likely to exert upon the condition of the slaves in the other Southern States. It is known, also, that many of the influen tial planters of Cuba, are in favor of gradual emancipation : " Freedom to every child c born of slave parents after a given date, and total emancipation to all who survive r twenty-five years," was the spirit of a toast given a year or two since at a dinner of wealthy planters in Havana; and such is I believed, by mamny who are well informed, t" I be tle view of a large portion of the Cubans in whose hands at some future day will rest the destiny of slavery in their native isle." t DEAvri oF Cot..

The disavowal I make, as ny friend, Col. Keiti, did, some years ago, when he called on Mr. Blancroft, Secretary of the Navy ; he endorsed on his card that lie was "no appli cant for office." The Secretary of the Navy immediately told Col. Keitt that his endorse ment was unnecessary, as he saw from his card that he was from South Carolina, and that the South Carolinians were no Office Seekers. I hope my friends in Greenville will entertain the same favorable opinion of the Senior Editor of the Patriot." We wish that the dispensers of federal witronage, could say as much for South Carolinians, at this time. But rumor says, ipplicants for office from this State, may be :ounted not by units or tens, but by hun ireds-" To such base uses, &c." We be gin to think that Maj.
