There was one inmate of the family of
whom the young girl stood in a little dread
—George Dale, a nephew of Mr. Dale, and
a boy of about thirteen. He was very cu
rious and inquisitive, and Matilda said,
had no soul, tie called her "Miss Fancy,"
and teiued her until her patience was quite
exhausted. Lately, he had met her several
times when she was taking a longer walk
than usual with Mr. Fleming, discussing
ways and means. Matilda hud one fixed
idea connected with an elopement and that
was a rope-ladder from a chamber window,
a carriage underneath, and a moonlight
night-

Mr. Fleming tried to convince her that
this combination, in these days of police
men, would be sufficient to arouse the whole
neighborhood. But his eloquence was wast
ed. Matilda would seem to yield to his
reasoning every duy but the next morning
would find her lirmly planted on the rope
ladder again. She rejected with scorn Mr.
Fleming's proposal to walk to some clergy
man's house, and induce him to marry them,
It was too much like a servant-girl she said.

Fortunately for Matilda, this discussion
oocupied several days. Meantime, George
had used his eyes and his wits to some pur
pose. One day, after Mr. and Mrs. Dale
and Matilda had seated themselves at the
dinner-table, a singular noise was heard in
the hall and George came in, dragging af
ter him an enormously long rope-ladder.
"Now, Matty! what on earth do you want

PAVLlNt FORSYTH*
Matilda Murray was left an orphan and
..j heiress at the »®e of sixteen. Jacob
Dale, a member of tue Society of Friends,
was her guardian and, with him and his
wife, an invalid and great sufferer from
nervous attacks, Matilda was to find a home.
Shi.- had been a petted and idolized child
and the change from the lavish outporin^s
of parental love to the cool, calm eompan- i
ionship and care of Friend Dale and his
wife, was like coming out the heated air of
a ball-room into the dark and chilling night.
Thev tried to perform the duties that Mr.
.Murray, in his confidence and esteem, had
devolved upon tlieni but Matilda felt, with
out knowiug exactly how or why that duty,
and not nfl'eetioii, was the motive that in
fluenced her guardian and wife towards
her. She was not a pretty girl: although,
through the mistaken fondness aiid liattcrv
of her parents, she had learned to think 1
herself beautiful. Neither was she very i
wise or prudent. She had grown up in such
an enervating atmosphere of praise and in
dulgence that her iniud was almost in a
state of lethargy. She could not endure
•tudy or books of any kind, except, the
weakest and trashictit of lore-sick, ro-1
mances and it was great a mental effort to
her to read one of those quite through, that
she rarely accomplished it. The only mo
th e sufficiently strong to arouse her to much
exertion was ft love for dress. She was
quite happy and excited when she was shop
ping and, next to that, she liked to sit at
the window, and criticise the attire of the
passers-by—a most uncongenial inmate for
the household of a strict and uncompro-1
mising Quaker.
it was not the least of Matilda's troubles
that her ribbons and laces had to be laid
aside, as Friend Dale, though he did not re
quire her to conform exactly to the mode
Matilda burst into tears, and ran from
the room without replying but George en
lightened his uncle as far as he could. lie
knew that Matilda walked every dav with
Mr. Fleming and the rope-ladder told the
rest. Without Mr. Fleming's knowledge,
Matilda had obtained it by the help of a
servant! That very night, sho intended to
make use of it, if a favorable opportunity
presented. Anna was to spend tire evening
with her, and help her arrange her plans,
and carry the intelligence of them to her
brother, who was growing a little impatient
at Matilda's delay.
Now, all her hopes were blighted, at least
for a tiuic. Sho remained in her room
weeping, while her guardian spent n busv
afternouu in investigating into the doings
of his ward. He questioned the servants,
who generally know all that is to be known
of any matter of that kind, and went to find
Mr. Fleming,- He expostulated with him
on iudueing so young a girl to take such a
step without the knowledge of her protec
tors. Mr. Fleming appeared to be quite
affected, by Mr. Dale's arguments and al
though the latter was a shrewd man of bu
siness, he allowed himself to be entirely
thrown off' his guard by the apparent man
liness and frankness with which Mr. Flem
ing avowed his own consciousness of his
error, and promised that, although he would
not be willing to consider tho engagement
between himself and Miss Murray as at an
end, still he would wait some years before
attempting to carry the matter further.
"The young man behaved himself with
great propriety," said Mr. Dale to his ward.
"If thee does as well, 1 shall be quite sat
isfied."
"it is as well, though, not to trust too
much to the young people," said he to his
wife. And, therefore, he kept Matilda at
home, employing private teachers for her,
to her great vexation and annoyance, and
entirely discountenanced any iutimacy or
intercourse with Anna Fleming. But "Ma
tilda's fancy had become too deeply inter
ested for these moderate measures to prove
effectual. Mr. Fleming still continued to
write to her. The washer-woman was Cu
pid's messenger in this case and another
attempt at an elopement was agreed upon.
Mr. i leuiing had arranged a plan that he
thought would succeed without fail when
Matilda's absurd desires and obstinacy in
carrying them out made him almost repent
having wasted so much time on such a sim
pleton. If she could not have a rope-lad
der, she would have a bridal wardrobe and
Mr. Fleming was forced to wait several
weeks, while she was collecting the various
articles she thought necessary. Her sup
lily of pooket-money was ample to meet all
her extravagant wishes. Her dress-maker
wondered what Miss Murray could want
with the magnificent dresses she was having
mado, and at last surmised somewhat of the
truth. But no one else seemed to suspect
anything. Once or twice, Matilda fancied
that George looked 11 little mysterious when
he saw her tako a package from a servant
hut, in her many occupation*, she soon for
got her suspicions.
At last, the wardrobe was prepared, and
packed in three large trunks. The plan
was finally arranged. Mr. Fleming was by
Ho means satisfied with it but it was the
best he could do with the materials he had
to work with. Matilda and Anna were to
meet him at a certain hotel at Haarlem, and
accompany him to some clergyman's there,
where the ceremony could be performed.
i
tion and Anna always seemed to consider
it an important part of her duties, as a'
friend, to accompany Matilda to her own
door before she parted from her.
One day, they were joined in the stect by
a tall-showy-looking young gentleman,
Movo^ianf*. B„„1 whom Anna introduced to Matilda, as her
Merchants Exchange Bank brother. After this, Mr. Fleming bccamo
their constant escort on their way to and
from the school, leaving them regularly
when within a square of either pkfe.

If Matilda had obeyed implicitly Mr.
Fleming's instructions, all would have suc
ceeded but, after seating herself by the
side of Anna, in the carriage that had been
ordered to meet them at Taylor's, she insist
ed on returning for her trunks. Anna re
monstrated in vain. Matilda was sure there
was no danger. Her guardian was at his
counting-room, which he would not leave
for several hours. His wife was in her bed
with one of her nervous attacks. George
was at school and the servants were busy
in another part of the house and, as for
returning for them afterwards, as Mr.
Fleming wished, that she would never dare
to do. So Anna was obliged to yield.
Now, it happened that that day, of all
tho days of the year, George was seised
with so severe a headache, that he found
himself obliged to leave the school-room.
Hurrying home, he was surprised to soe
three trunks, evidently prepared for some
traveller, standing in the hall. He forgot
at once his headache, and proceeded to in
vestigate the cause of this phenomenon. He
had nis own suspicions and thev guided
him on tbe nght track. Finding Matilda's
room cmptv, he sought the waiter. "Are
those Miss fratilda's trunks in the hall?"
asked he.

In a few weeks more he had obtained Ma
tilda's promise to be hi* wife, and had, at the
same time, impressed upon her the necessity
of keeping the whole affair a profound se
cret from Friend, Dale and his wife. To
this, Matilda readily consented, as all her
preconceived ideas of guardians were that
they were a olasa of people whose only
pleasure lay in thwarting the wishes of their
wards, especially in the matrimonial way
and she anticipated no difficulty in this, 114
Mr. Dale woe too much absorbed in his bu
siness to pay much attention to her and his
wife's attention was almost entirely engross
ed by her ailments, which developed every
day something nrw and singular. Mrs. Dale
had been watching and pondering over her
own ill health for ten years, and had not
yet been able to determine satisfactorily
what her disease was, or where it made it's
stronghold. In her perplexity, she had
tried eight different physicians, who each
gave her coinplaiut a different name and
some were truly frightful, so that the poor
lady would- keep her bed for weeks after
finding out how ill she was and it would
take all her husband's genoralship to per
suade her that sho was able to sit up. Of
course, Mrs. Dale could do little for Matil
da. All that she attempted was to urge her
to keep her feet well protected from the
damp pavements, and be sure and wear a
veil.
ye?" returned tho Irishman, writk a look of 1
stupid wonder.
The man was evidently pledged to secre
cy but, convinced by his evasive answers,
George run down to his uncle's place of bu
siness, with the intelligence, in a state of as
great excitement as a young sportsman
when he shoots his first woodcock.
Mr. Dale came hurrying up the street un
der the warm rays of the morning sun, and
reached his own door just as the driver was
strapping on the-lust trunk.
"You may take that luggage off again,"
said an authorutive voice and Matilda
glanced out of the uarriuge window in dis
may, as she heard it, uud saw her guardian
standing at the door, somewhat heated and
flushed with his long walk, but otherwise as
calm and composed us ever. He threw
open the carriage dooi, and assisted, with
his usual courtesy, the frightened girls to
alight. Without a word Anna walked away
in the direction of her own home. Mr.
Dale had a short conversation with Matilda,
and easily drew from her the particulars of
her projected elopement. Then, taking her
place in the carriage, he ordered the driver
to proceed.
It wus not long before the panting hor
ses stopped at the appointed place of meet
ing and Mr. Fleming sprang down from
the steps of the hotel, where he had been
standing on the alert, saying, as he drew
near: "Oh, dearest, how long you have kept
me waiting! I have been wishing for wiugs,
that 1 might lly to hasten you." And he
threw open the carriage door."
"I am sorry thee has been wasting thy
time to so little purpose," said the stout
old gentleiuun, as he alighted slowly and
carefully. "It seemed to me we came with
great speed. The driver told me, when 1
cautioned him about it, that he was to have
double fare if he were here before twelve.
Will thee see that he gets his pay, as he
surely deserves it?"
When Mr. Dale had seen the man's de
mands satisfied, he requested Mr. Fleming
to allow him a short conversation with him
and together they sought the drawing room
of the hotel.
"Before thee goes further with thy pur
pose, 1 thought 1 would let thee know one
clause of James Murray's will—the most
sensible thiug be did," said the old gontle
man, as if to himself. "By it, 1 have full
power to withhold all the income of her es
tate from his daughter, if she marries with
out my consent, until sho is twenty-one.—
She is now sixteen and 1 assure thee, friend
Fleming, if tbee marries her, thee shall not
have one cent of hers as long as I can help
it. Thee is falso to thy promise and 1 do not
longer feel bound to act towards thee as a
gentleman."
.Mr. Fleming attempted to excuse his con
duct by saying that his feelings were too
much interested for him to consider calmly
what he did. Mr. Dale listened to him pa
tiently and politely, but seemed in no way
softened by Mr. Fleming's appeal.
A few days after, Matilda was sent to a
school in the country, under tho control of
a lady, one of Mr. Dale's personal friends.
Mr. Fleming made several attempts to re
new his intercourse with her there, but at
last gave up in despair.
For three years, Matilda remained iu this
seclusion and, although she at first spent a
great portion of her time lamenting over
the cheerless home to which her severe
guardian had consigned her, she soon al
lowed herself to be consoled nud, removed
from all disturbing intluences, she began, at
last to find some pleasure iu study anil use
ful occupation. Mr. Dale, when he placed
her there, had been quite hopeless about her,
and had adopted that course as the best one
to keep the foolish girl from falling a snare
to the arts of some fortune-hunter, while she
was still uuder his care. "But now," said
he to his wife, "Matilda has become really
a tolerably sensible and right-minded young
woman. I think 1 might venture to bring
her home again, especially since Mr. Flem
ing is out of the city."
"Where is he?" asked Mrs. Dale.
"in California. When he was last heard
from, he was a laboring-hand on a boat, on
one of the rivers there. He had been try
ing to work at the mines, but had not suc
ceeded. There is no prospect of his return
ing."
Matilda came home »oon after this con
versation and Mr. Dale, with some formali
ty, gave her the latest intelligence with re
gard to Mr. Fleming.
All poets—and they surely are tho ora
cles on such points—agree in saying that
"Love is love forevermore so that, as
Matilda felt her early preference for Mr.
Fleming fading from ner mind, from the
moment she began to think of him as a
hoatman, she concluded that she never lov
ed him. "It was only the fancy of a fool
ish girl," said she to Robert Dale, George's
elder brother, with whom, as her affianced
lover, she was talking over the one great
episode in her early lffe. "If 1 had suc
ceeded, how unhappy I should now have
been! But I can never help smiling when I
think of Mr. Fleming's rushing forward to
greet me,and seeing uncle's portly figure
seat
ed inside the carriage. I laughed, that day,
whenever I thought of it. It seemed such
a ridiculous ending—not at all like a novel.
So you see 1 was not very much in love."
THE NEW TERRITORY OF DAfOTAH.
The last Congress, it will be remembe-ed,
erected a new Territory under the name of
Dacotah, and we condense the following
facts, of interest to our readers, from the
late number of the Independent at Sergeant's
Bluff.
This new Territory bids fair to be be a
field of enterprise which will soon command
much attention. It includes a great part of
the valley of the Sioux, the valleys of the
Jamos and Vermillion Rivers and large
tracts of beautiful bottom lands lying on
the Missouri, particularly that beautiful
tract of country known as the Vermillion
prairie.
The mouth of the Big Sioux River is about
eight miles northwest of Sergeant's Bluff,
and will be the southeast corner of the Ter
ritory.
The prevailing want of this entire region
is timber. Its chief attractions are fertile
soil, pore nir and water, and umistiully
healthy climate a*d It is believed also to
possess an abundnnce of mineral coal. The
fiortion
lying on the Big Sioux is an undu
nting praine, containing a few small tracts
of hardwood timber. It is abundantly wa
tered with springs and numerous small
creeks, while the Sioux and its larger tribu
taries furnish ample water power. The falls
of tho Sioux,
at the northwest corner of Iowa
in particular, offers one of the finest water
powers in the West. For the last forty
miles of its course the Sioux winds its way
through a tract of bottom land of great ex
tent and almost unsurpassed fertility, and
in many places amply timbered.
This tract of land may be described as a
triangle, having its base on the' Sioux and
its apex on the Missouri at a point a few
miles below the mouth of the L'Eau Qui
Court River, and must unquestionably form
the seat of empire in the new Territory.—
Thither the eyes of speculators and adven
turers are eagerly turned, and hundreds and
thousands are only awaiting tbe purchase of
these lands from the Indians by government
to press its virgin soil und make it the the
atre of new enterprise, and the certain means
of requiring wealth and advanced position.
In regard to the climate, it is a well known
fact that westward beeomes milder, so much
so that tho winters in the northwestern por
tion of Dacotah are probably not more se-

"Sure, and how should 1 know where

"Did you bring them down from Miss
Matilda's room? Tell me yes or no."
"And was it 1 that brought them, do je
want to know?"
Ballertoo sat in his room in his ho-
into his pale features to tell that he was an
invalid. He sat with his head resting upon
ois hands, and his whole frame would ever
and anon tremble, as though with some
powerful emotion.
As the youth sat thus, his door was open
ed, and an elderly gentleman entered.
'Ah, doctor, you are moving eurly this
morning,' said Ballerton, as he lazily rose
from his seat, and extended his hand.
'O! not early for me, George,' returned
Allyne, with u bright smile. *1 am an early
bird.'
'Well—yon've caught a worm this time.'
(1
hope 'twill prove a valuable one.'
1 don't know,' sighed the youth
'1 fear a thousand worms will inherit this
poor body ere long.'
'Nonsense! you're worth half a centnry
yet,' cried the doctor, giving him a gentle
slap on the shoulder. 'But just tell me,
George, how is it with Rowland
'1 don't understand it, George.'
'Neither do I,' said tbe young man, sor
rowfully. 'That Charles Rowland could
have done that thing, I would not—could
not—have believed. Why had an angel
appeared to me two weeks ago, and told me
that Rowland was shaky, I would not have
paid a moment's attention to it. But only

when I did arrive at that period of life, 1
left my money where it was. I had uo use
for it. Several times, within three four or
four years, has Rowland asked me to take
my money and invest it, but I would not. I
bade him keep it, and use it, if he wished.
1 only asked that, when I wanted money,
he would honor my demand. 1 felt more
safe, in fact, than I should have felt had my
money been in the bank on deposit.'
'How much had he when he left?'
'How much of mine
'Yes.'
'He should have had a hattdfed thousand
dollars.'
'What do you mean to do?'
'Ah—you have me on the hip there.'
'And yet you must do something, George.
Heaven knows I would keep you if I could.
1 shall claim the privilege of paying your
del^t, however.'
'No, no, doctor—none of that.'
'But 1 tell you I shall. I shall pay your
debts, but beyond that 1 can only assist you
to help yourself. What do you say to going
to sea.'
A faint smile swept over die youth's pale
features at this remark.
'1 should make a Smart hand at sea, doc
tor! I can hardly keep my legs on shore.
No, no—1 must—,
'Must what
'Alas! I know not. I shall die—that's
all!'
•Nonsense George. I say go to sea.—
You couldn't go into a shop, and you would
not if you could. You do not wish to re
main here timid the scenes of your happy
days. Think of it at sea you will be free,
from all sneers of the heartless, and from
all contact with things you loathe. Think
of it.'
George Ballerton started to his feet and
paced the Moor for some minutes, When
he stopped, a new life seemed already at
work within him.'
'If I went to sea what conld I do?'
'You understand all the laws of foreign
trade
'Yes: yon know I had a thorough school
ing at that in my father's counting-house.'
•Then you can have the berth of a super
cargo.'
'Are vou sure 1 can geftertf*''
'Yes.'
'And the salary?' V
'Two thousand dollars.®
'Doctor John Claudius Allyne, I will go!'
George Ballerton walked one evening to
the house of the wealthy merchant, Andrew
Wilton. It was a palatial dwelling, and
many a hopeful, happy hour had he spent
beneath
its roof, lie" rang the bell, and
was admitted to the parlor. In a few min
utes, Mary Wilton entered. She was only
twenty. She had been waiting until that
age to lie George illerton's wife.
Some words were spokeh—many moments
of paiuful silence ensued.
Alary—you know all. I am going upon
the sea. 1 am going to work for my living.
I am going forth from my native land a
b"ggar. I cannot stay long now. Mary,
did 1 know vou less than I do—or, knowing
you well, ilid I know you as I do many—1
should give you back your vows, and free
you from all bondage. But I believe I
should trample upon your heart did I do that
thing now. I know your love is too pure
and deep to bo torn from vour bosom at
will. So I say—wait—wait!'
'But why wait? have I not enough?'—ah
you know not again what you say. There
are other feelings in the human "heart be
sides love. That love is poor, profitless
which puts aside all other considerations.
We must love for eternity, and so our love
must he free. Wait. I am going to work.
Ay—npon the sea to work
'But why upon the sea? Why away where
ray poor heart must ever beat in anxious
hope and doubt as it follows thee?'
'B«eause I cannot remain here. Hundreds
of poor fools have imagined that I shunned
them because I was proud. They knew not
that it was the tainted atmosphere of their
moral life that 1 shunned. They gloat over
my misfortune. Men may call me foolish
but it would kill me to stay here.1*
'Alas! must it be?'
'It must. You will wait?'
'I will wait even to thegatos of the tomb!'
'Then Heaven bless and preserve you!'
The ruined youth was upon the oeenti—
his voyage commenced—his duties as la
enter upon. From the ownership of im
mense wealth to the trade books of n mer
chant ship, was a transition indeed But
ere he went on deck again, he had resolved
that he would do his duty, come what would,
short of death. He would forget that he
ever did else but work for his livlihood.—
With these resolves, clearly defined in his
mind, he had already felt better,
At first our supercargo was too weak to
do much. He wjis very sea-sick, and
lasted nearly two weeks but when that

upon the same
cruise again and hu meant to go with her.
He saw Mary Wilton, and she would wait.
He saw Dr. Allyne, and the kind old gentle-.,
man praised liiiu for his manly indepen
dence.
Again George Ballerton was upon the sen
and again he assumed the duties of his office,
and even more. He stood watcfi when there
was no need of it, and during seasons of
storm he claimed a post on deck. At the end
of another year the young man returned to
his home again. He was now twenty-eight,
and few wno knew him two years before,
could rccognixehim now. His face wan brown
by exposure, his checks full and plump, his
frame stout and crect like a forest chief-—
His muscular system was nobly developed,
and the men were few who could stand be
fore him in trials of physical strength—
When he first left the city, two
years before,
he had weighed just oue hundred and thirty
pounds avoirdupois. He now brought up
the beau fairly at one hundred and sevouty
sixl Surely ho was now a new man in every
respect.
On the afternoon of the third day, as
he
entered his hotel one of the waiters handed
him a letter. He opened it, and found it
to be from Mr. Wilton. It wus a request
that he would be at the merchant's house at
uine o'clock thateveniug,
