DEVOTED TO LITERATURE, SCIENCE, -1 love the country with a most en grossing and strong appreciation. It awakens my tenderest feelings and sweetest associations. Delicious reverie descends upon my spirit, as I walk through the meadows and clover-lields when the earth is white with summer, aud glowing with beauty. To see the wide landscape undulating around ine ; to hear the sulidued murmurs of a siun mer day that seems to intensity the qui et that broods over all the scene ; to wateh the loaded . wagons rolling on ward to tlie gamer with fragrant bay or nodding wheat sheaves embodiments of Plenty to feel the delicate fragrance of the heavy swaths as it floats around you these . are sights and realizations that are very pleasant to me, whose life is spent far away from all such beauties. We who live in cities, amidst heat aud dust; who breathe an atmosphere of vitiated odors aud begriming chimney smoke, can best appreciate the tlelights that ever attach to country life. ,i Yes, I love thfi country: My first im pressions were formed amid its hallow ed scenery 1 1 1 was cradled among the hills; blue mountains melted iu the dis tance from my bedroom window ; broad fields, and woods, and rivers shone Iie tween; the huge rains made melody on the roof above me, and then I became steeped in the passionate love for nature. It lias never left me, and I rejoice as I call back those pleasant times, when in the casement of our seminary,' I rested my telescope on my shnt-np Virgil, and looked on" among the far-away hills, in the lap of which the edifice was "cradled, and saw the pretty girbs of the farm houses whitening their long pieces of brown linen, cloth-,, fresh from the loom pick ing, raspberries in the green hedges, -drawing cool. water in the swinging oak bucket, to make switchel withal for the ; swains a they came home for their forenoon lunch, or milking their balm-breathing cows in the golden even tide. Those were happy days, and if I got my Latin badly, and made blunders m recitation, I got many a leaf from tlie .book: of. nature, most deeply by heart.- ;-n-. "'; - , Rural life seldom fails to accomplish one object it softens the heart. It awakens the afi'ections, and leads to con templation. .'God made the country and man made the town. -1 In the former there are no artificial wants, prejudices or fashions all is cordiality, comfort and peace, - We look abroad" upon the solemn lulls, the --shining streams, and rising woodlands,, and we feel that God is there! His hand raised the rock-ribbed mountain over its throne, and rolled around it its crown of misty glory. His breath fills the blue vault that swells above, until immensity, as it were, is visible; and His smile is shadowed only in the sunbeams which traverse those nbyssesof mystery. How majestic is the coming of a summer storm ! We sit at the window of some rural mansion to which we have fled from the air and heat of the metropolis, and see the far-off clouds arise like giant forms against the horizon, with spears of tire, ami robes of purple and gold; then, ashy some sud den alchemy, they melt info a mass of solid gloom, from whose bosom the light ning darts. its ; vivid chain, while its source .: " ' - .

THE DANGER OF THE HOI K. BY E. P. BHANCH. Tlie most deplorable of all follies is na tional folly. Thoughtlessness in a nation is a sure precursor of its destruction. The utmost vigilance is necessary for the pre servation of a free government. Nation al ruins are invariably monuments of national tolly. The history ot tne world liears on every page a warning and a lesson which we will do well to heed if we desire to maintain intact our present form of government. All along down the shores of time lie these nation al " wrecks, grim skeletons of former greatness, whose bleached bones crum bling to dust we cannot hide from our sight if we would. One of the most terrible of all these national shipwrecks we have just wit nessed in the old world. weiooK witii the most profound astonishment upon the fact that one of the strongest govern ments on the tace ot the glooe, possess ing, apparently, unbounded resources of wealth and iiower, should DC torn uown w ithin the short space of a few mouths, and trampled under the heels of an in furiated mob. , The emperor Napoleon a prisoner on German soil ; immense standing armies melted away; strong forts aud grim bas- tiles razed to the ground; the luiienes and the Hotel de. Ville ransacked by brutal mobs ; collections of art that have occupied years in gathering together de stroyed in a single hour; gentle women turned into infuriated amazons, with a horrid thirst for blood and carnage; all these are facts which may well cause us to look with alarm to our own security as a government. Are ice in auy danger of dissolution ? Is there no lesson in the woes of France for us to learn ? Is not the Almighty tracing on the wall a warning for us to heed? These are questions that demand tlie most earnest consideration. , They are of paramount importance to Ku-Klux bills, reconstruction acts, San Domingo or ev en the tariff" question. It is the heighth of folly to undertake to disguise the fact that the morals of the nation are iu a deplorable condition, and when the National conscience is once stilled we shall have lost the corner-stone of our liberties. It needs but half an eye to discern that we are steadily drift ing towards the condition of the French people before the dethronement of Na poleon HI. AVe see more and more dai ly of that giddy, thoughtless, aimless life which formerly characterized the French nation. The Puritan element among us is almost extinguished. That rigid sense of honor and rectitude peculiar to Ply mouth Rock has become so diluted within tlie last three or four generations that it is scarcely recognizable. Money-getting, dress, and personal ease are the coutrol- mg motives ot the present generation. Count up the young men in this or any other community, and see how many of them have any higher motive in life. Listen to the conversation of a circle of young ladies, and see how naturally it turns to dress and sensational gossip. Look at the extravagances and indecen cies in dress; at the rapid strides and terrible destruction that intemperance is making iu both sexes; at the gradual re laxation ot the moral sense ot society, and see if there is not cause for alarm. Exhibitions are patronized uow-a-days by ladies and gentlemen, that ten years ago would have been compelled to seek a garret in some back street, and per form before an audience ot men and boys of the coarsest grade. Drunken ness is not uncommon among boys of twelve to sixteen years old, and girls of the same tender age irequently exhilnt the most alarming depravity. Honesty in high places is becoming altogether too rare a jewel. Bribery and corruption are permeating every department of the government, in spite of the efforts of good men to prevent it. The spoils of otb.ee prove more attractive thau the honors pertaining to it. The elective franchise is nought and sola as an article of merchandise. Lobbying, wire-puli ng and intrigueirig control the politics of the nation. i This state of things is not peculiar to any .particular political party. Indeed, it is something which political parties. as a rule, have left out of their delibera tions entirely. Who ever heard of Dem ocrats or Republicans , incorporating temperance or comon honesty as a plank iu their platform? Whoever heard of a man being defeated at the polls because ot ins personal lack ol integrity .-' : Now the legitimate result of this state of tilings is easily predicted. Unless the nation is aroused to a sense of its danger ; unless some means can be inaugurated to resist and turn back this tidal wave of corruption, it will surely overwhelm us in a common ruin. We shall go from bad to worse; a multitude of evils, worse than those of Pandora's Box, will be poured out upon us ; society will liecoine more and more reckless ; more and more vitiated. A passion forgayety and pleas ure will crowd more earnest matters out of sight. People will live for the pres ent alone, regardless ot the past or the future. Hie Christian Saliliath, ac knowledged by our keenest statesmen to be indispensable to the wellare ot any iieople, will lose its influence over us. Young men will begin to boast of atheis tic principles, claiming them as the index of a strong mind. f'Tho Bibh they will tell us, "is a very good hook, but it has outgrown its usefulness." It will be cast aside with the last year fashion-plates. From this point the path leads down ward with fearful rapidity, tuui tne end win not lie tar oist.nt. , , Does anyone say that these are the words of a visionary, and that this is an inprobable state of affairs?

AGRICULTURE, AND GENERAL NEWS, JUDITH, OR THE OPERA BOX. TRANSLATED FROM THE FRENCH OF EUGENE SCRIBE. PAR M. LI BOSSET. One evening if I remember rightly, it was the end of 1831 there was a great crowd at the Opera, for Taglioni was to dance. The spectators had crowded themselves on the steps of the orchestra, and the extra stools furnished for the friends of the conductor formed a sort of barricade which I found it difficult to surmount, amidst cries of "Hush, hush! silence, silence!" from the enthusiastic amateurs whom I disturbed. For when Taglioni dances, one not only gazes but listens. It seems as if the eye were not sufficient to admire with. I found myself in an awkward posi tion, forced to stand amidst a group of my Iriends whom l met there Dy ap pointment, and who were too much crowded to make room for uie, when a yoking man rose and offered me his seat, winch 1 declined, not wishing to deprive him of the pleasure of the spectacle. "it is no deprivation," he said "1 am going out." 1 accepted his offer with thanks; and my obliging neighbor cast a last look at the stage before taking Ins departure. For an instant he stopped, leaning his back against the box of General Clapar ede, and seemed to look for some one in the distance. .Then sinking gradually into a profound revery, he evidently thought no more of retiring. He was right in saying I did not de prive him of the view ; for turning his back to the stage seeing nothing hear ing nothing he appeared entirely to forget wliere he was. . I examined him attentively. 1 It was impossible to imag ine a face more handsome or expressive. Dressed simply and elegantly, there was something noble and distinguished m all his movements. He seemed about five- and-twenty. His fine black, eyes were fixed incessautly on a front liox of the second tier with an indefinable expression of melancholy and despair. Involun tarily 1 turned in that oirecuon, and I saw that the box was empty. "He expects somebody who lias not come," 1 said "she has deceived Inm she is ill or her father lias prevented her, and he loves and expects in vain. Poor voung teliow anu l watched as attentively as he. I pitied him, and .,-.,,,1.1 4-1, .. . ,.-1.1 t , I, ., ... . .,111,1 uon, .,,,11, I'll fcv ' i. , ' .T.V 11 the door of tlie box opened ; but it re mained closed. , . . , ., ... ; . ... The ballette was about to end; and while the inferior dancers were perform ing,' conversation, as usual- proceeded almost aloud. -Among other things, we talked of Hobert le Diablq, which was then in rehearsal, and was about to ap pear in a tew days. My triendsmade all sorts of inquiries about tlie music the ballettes the situations and all the other points of interest in relation to the new piece, and begged very earnestly to at tend the last rehearsal. . -A - rehearsal seems so strange and wonderful to those unaccustomed to it." J promised to intro duce them, and we all rose up to go away, tor tne curtain was aoout to tail. j& i found myself near my unknown friend, who still remained" motionless in the same place,: I expressed my regret that I had accepted his otter, anu my gratifi cation if I could do any tiling to oblige mm in return. . ,. , "You can do so quite easily," he-re plied ; "I have just gathered that you are M.Meyerbeer.". , . "1 nave not tnat nonor ;. . "At any rate you are one of. the au thors of Hobert le Diable?" ... "After a sort," 1 said, "I wrote, the words." , , - i ' "Well, then," he rejoined, "let me be present at the rehearsal to-morrow," ' "we are so little prepared as yet, that 1 canionly venture to ask my mends." "T hat is one reason more lor my re peating the request.", - , "And," I said, "I am delighted that you nave repeaieu n, on inose rerms." He shook my hand, and the hour was fixed for tlie following day. He was exact to ins appointment. We walked for a few minutes about the stage before tlie rehearsal commenced. ,. He spoke gravel j', yet pleasantly and clever ly ; but it was easy to perceive that it needed an ettort to keep up the conver sation, ; and that he was pre-oceupied with other thoughts. Our goddesses of the dance and ot tne song oegan to ar rive one after another. ; Several times I per -i"ed him tremble,' and once his agi- tatie , was so great tnat ne nad to sup port himself ou the side scenes. I be gan to suspect he was a rejected lover of one of our Clios or Terpsichores a sus picion which his extreme .handsomeness and his style altogether rendered bv no means probable ; and in reality I was mis- taKen. lie spoKe to no one went near no one and no one knew who he was. The rehearsal began. I looked for him in the orchestra among the ama teurs. He was not there ; . and though the body of the house was somewhat dark, I thought I saw him in the front box wrhich he had gazed on so constantly the night before. I was anxious to make sure of this and at the end of the rehearsal after the admirable trio of the fifth act, I ascended to the second tier. Meyerbeer, who had something to say to ine, accom panied me.' ' We arrived at the box, of which the door was halt open, and saw the 'unknown with his head resting on his hands. At our approach he turned quickly round and rose up. . His pale face was covered with tears. , Meyerbeer was overjoyed; and Without , saving a word, shook his hand most kindly, as. , if to manic mm. rue unknown, trying to conceal his embarassuient,, muttered some words of compliment in such a vague arid unconnected manner, that he saw he iiad not listened to the perform ance, and that for two hours he , had been thinking of any thing rather than the music. Meyerbeer whispered tome in despair "The wretch lias not heard a note!" " ' 5 ..'.;.' , -. . ,- . AVe all three descended the stairs, and crossing tlie large beautiful court which leads to the Rue Grange Bataliere, the unknown bowed to M. Saussaret, who at ' that time had the letting of the seats. , , . I went to M. Saussaret. "You know that handsome voung fellow who hits just left me?" ' ' !' - "M. Arthur Rue du Hehlcr No. 9. I know nothing more.' He has engaged a box on the second tier for this winter." "He was there this moment," ! said. ' "Then he seems to use it in the morn ing only, for he never goes near it at night. The box is always empty." And iu fact during the whole Week the dtxir was never opened. The box remained deserted. ; '; ' The first apjiearancc of Jlobtrt was now near, and on such occasions a poor devil of an author is overwhelmed with appli cations for boxes and tickets. You may imagine what time he has to attend to his play, and the changes and curtailments that may lie required, lie has to answer letters and claims that xur in upon him from all quarters, ami it is invariably the ladies who are most exacting on ' such nights, i "Ynu were to have got ine two lioxes and 1 have only got one." "You promised me No. 10, next to the gener al's, and they have sent me No. 15, next to Madame D. whom 1 detest, and w ho casts ine into the shade . with her ' dia monds.". I .-(--! . i -ti -. - -' A first night is tlnuf when you' get into scra)tes with your liest friends, who, perhaps overlook" it' In a few days, if your piece "takes,?' but who nurse' their indignation a long 1 time if ' you are "damned," so that you -are punished both by them and the" public at the same time. Misfortunes never come alone. On tlie morning of the first night of Jtolmn, I had promised a Imix to some ladies, but the. manager took it away from me to give It. to a journalist. l complained. He replied, "'Tls for a journalist, you understands a journalist who hales you, but who lias promised 1871. thanks to my politeness In giving him your box to speak favorably of the music." It was impossible to resist an argument like this and the box was giveu up. But where was l to bestow my tair friends, whose wrath was a much more serious matter to me than that of the journalist ? I luckily remembered my unkuown ac quaintance, and went to" his residence. His room was very simple and unosten tatious, particularly for a man who had a box at the opera." "My dear sir," I said, "I come to ask you a great favor." "Say on." "Do you intend to be present at the first representation of Robert le Viable f In your box, I mean." He appeared embarrassed, and replied with some hesitation "I should be very happy but it is impossible." "Have vou disposed of it?" "No.'i "Will you give it tip to me? you will get me out of an awkward predicament." His trouble seemed to increase every moment. He could not refuse me ; and at last, as if making a great effort to com mand himself he said "I agree, but npon one condition that you put nobody into mat oox out men." "Impossible, my dear sir, I ask ' it ex pressly to accommodate some ladies." He was silent for a while. "And among these ladies," he said,- "is there any one you love ?" "Undoubtedly," I replied. : "Then take the box," he said, -"for I leave Paris to-day." I made a motion expressive of interest and curiosity, and he seemed to divine my thoughts ; for he took me by i the hand, and said, "you uo doubt perceive that certain fond and sad remembrances attach themselves to that box. I can communicate them to no one. Of what use is it to complain when one is misera ble and hopeless, aud when it is all , by his own fault?" i , That night the first representation of Hobert took place, and my mend Meyer beer achieved a triumph which resound ed all through Europe., - Since that time, many other events, literary, and political -many other successes and many failures. have occurred. I saw no more of ,M. Arthur--! thought of him no more. I had forgotten him. : " , - i , ... A night or two ago,, I ..found myself once more m the orchestra, at the right side oi tne opera. it. was not to see Hobert, it was to see thellwjuenois. Five years had passed awas. . "lou come late," said one ot my friends, a professor of civil law, who has as much "esput at night as erudition in tlie morning, i - "And you are very wrong in so doing." added a little man dressed in black, with a snarp voice anu a powdered nead, as tie tapped me on the shoulder. i turned round, and saw M. Baraton, the notary ol my lainily. -." " : :-"iou here: - l cried "and your office " . ' -'. -: - ; ; "Sold it three months ago I am rich I am a widower 1 anv sixty years old I have been twenty years married, and thirty years a notary l tmnK I am en titled to a little enjoyment." , "And he has now been a subscriber to the Opera for eight days," said the pro- tessor ot civil law. - "Ay, to be sure; I like to laugh; I like comedy, and so I have bought an admission here." ' "And why not at the Francaise?" " "Oh! not half so amusing as here one sees and liears the most extraordina ry things in the world. These gentle men know everything there is not a box of which they do not know the history." "Indeed!'.' I cried, and mechanicaly turned toward tne nox on tne second tier, which had so excited my curiosity some years oeiore. w nat was my amazement! That night it was empty as before ; and the only empty one in the whole house: I was delighted to have a history to tell, and in a few words related all that I have now told you. I was listened to With attention ; my friends were lost in conjecture the professor tried to recall some ancient recollections the. little notary smiled most maliciously. "Well, gentlemen," I said, "which of you who Know everytning can unrid dle this enigma for us ; who can tell us the story of that mysterious box ?" . They were all silent, even the profes sor, who passed his hands over his brow as if to refresh his recollection of some anecdote, aud would probably have fin ished by inventing one appropriate to the occasion, if the notary had giveu him time. - ti "Who will ten you that story?" he exclaimed, with an air of triumph, "who but I ? I know the whole particulars." "You, M. Baraton?" "To be sure." ."Goon, then goon," and we all drew near to listen. " , "Go on, M. Baraton." ' "Well, then," said the little notary, with an important look, and taking a pinch of snuff, '.'which of you was ac quainted with ", . , , But at that moment the first crash of the overture began and M. Baraton, who piqued himself on not losing a sin gle note, stopped immediately, and said "After tlie first act, gentlemen." i ' :.:-" "Gentlemen," said the notary, when the first act of the Huguenots was finished, "Queen Marguerite has to be dressed with all her maids of honor the castle and garden of Chenonceaux have to be got ready ; and the interval will be long enough, I think, to enable me to tell you the story yon wish to know." And after a placid pinch of snuff, which gave him time to collect ids thoughts, M. Baraton commenced in these words : "Which of you,' gentlemen, was ac qnainted with the little Judith?" ' We all looked at each other, and Uie oldest frequenter of the orchestra was puzzled. - "The little Judith," he went pn "who some seven or eight years ' ago . was brought out as a figurante, in tlie ' bal lette?" ". . ' " , ""Stay," said the professor of civil law, with somewhat of a pedantic air, "a little blonde who was one of the pages for the Muette?" . "She was dark," said the notary; "as to the part you attribute to her, 1 have no positive document on the subject, and prefer rclyiug ou your ' immense erudi tion." The professor bowed. i "But, whether dark or fair, there was one thing that nobody disputed, and that was, that the little Judith was a charming creature. And another jioint which ai pcared undeniable, was, that her aunt, Madame Bonuivct, was iiorteress in the Rue Richelieu, in the. house of an old gentleman, whose confidential manager she had once becu ; some said his cook; but Madame Bonuivct disdained the im peachment, and went on, quietly plying her knitting needles, and managing for the different lodgers, while her niece even, already began making conquests. For It was imiMissible to hiss the jMir ter's lodjijo without being struck with the extraordinary lieatity of little Judith, w ho was scarcely twelve years old. J Icr eyes even then were the finest iu Ihe world; her teeth like pearls; her form exquisitely graceful; and whatever dress she wore, she had the most distitujuv air imaginable; aud to crown all, an expres sive, clear and open countenance, with something radiant and coquettish in its very innocence. In short she gave prom ise of one of those glorious combinations of grace and Iwauty, enough to turn peo ple's heads; and, as a jioet would say,, to change the fate of empires. People paid Madame Bonuivct so many coin pi i incuts every day on the loveliness of her niece, that she determined to make considerable sacrifices for her education. She sent her, therefore, to : a charity school, where little girls were taught o read and write an enormous amount of instruction, the advantages of which were soon felt by Madame Bonuivct her self; who, in her caiaclty of iiorteress. XTJMBERI. had found it rather difficult to make out the different addresses, and to send the letters and parcels to their respective des tinations. Judith took this duty on her self, to the universal satisfaction of all concerned ; and Madame Bonuivet being now persuaded that with sucti an educa tion, superadded to so much beauty, her niece was soon to make a sensation in the world, she. waited impatiently for an opening. . . - , j it was not long belore an opportunity presented itself. -M. Rosambeatt, the ballette-master, who rented one of the attics, ottered to give little Judith !sotne lessons ; and, in a few days, Madame Bonmvet communicated in confidence- to all the ladies of her acquaintance---that her niece had been accepted as one of the corps de ballet of the opera a piece of news which ol course was spread fat and wide, and flew rapidly from door to door along the whole extent of the Rue Rich elieu. - , , . , , i Then, there was little Judith installed at the opera, taking lessons every morn ing ot M. Rosambeau, and coming on at night totally unnoticed amidst ( the groups of young girls, naids, or pages,1 as the prolessor justly observed a i lew minutes ago. , 1 Judith was innocence itself, though belonging to the stage ; for she had been brought up in a respectable house, where alt the lodgers were discreet Benedicks, Her aunt, who was. as watehful as, s dragon, never left her; accompanied her to the theatre in the morning, brought her home at night, and even remained whole days in the green-room knitting her stocKings, while her niece took le: sons and practiced her steps. You won der what became all this time of the large house in the Rue Richelieu ; I can't exact ly say ; but people believe that a friend of Madame Bonmvet undertook all herd ti tles then, in the expectation of the little Judith making a catch-; for' you (are aware, gentlemen, that no one: goes on the opera boards unless with , the hopes of making a catch gaming a settlement. or however you choose to express (hat great objectof an actress's ambition. In this way they leave the stage they jare rich they reform; and the good aunt : for all pretty dancers, you may have (re marked, nave invariably aunts ol ithe nignest respectaDiiity marries ner niece, now weaned from the vanities ' of itin spangles and paste diamonds, to a flour ishing stockbroker, or ",- . "A retired notary," added the profes sor. - M. Baraton slirugged his shoulders. "Of course," he said ; t'but at that tune thoughts of such prodigious advancement had never entered into the heads of either Madame Bonmvet or her niece., Ambi tion grows on us by degrees." ' I "But Judith," I said "what ; became of Judith ?". for I saw the curtain about to rise." . I "Judith ! I'm coining to her directly. Madame- Bonnivet, in spite of all her cati- tioiij could not, hinder her niece from talking with her,; companions. In tlie mornings in the green-room, and above all, at !ijrht when they were on the stage a region w here the aunt found it im possible to follow Judith heard some things that astonished her. - One of the nymphs or S3'lphides, her companions, whispered in Her ear "oe, Jndith, look in the orchestra at the right how hard he is looking at me." "Who?" said Judith. . , i "That handsome young man with the cashmere vest, don't you see him?". "What does it all mean?" ' t "I've struck him." : '--in- 'Struck him?' said Judith, astonished "Ha, ha!" said the nymph,, "what !a simpleton you are. Girls, here's a curi osity she never had an admirer !" 1 I "All her aunt's fault," said another of the sylphs. i .. . "Indeed! well! if I had an aunt so ridiculous, I would " j "Hush, hush ; you know nothing about it," replied the other, who seemed a few years older ; 'she perhaps has se rious intentions about little Judith, and to keep her from the danger of lovers, is going to give her to a protector.' " t 'She!' rejoined the others, 'she hasn't wit enough to get her one. ; . Such good fortune would be too much to expect. ; I Judith did not lose a syllable, but had not courage to ask anybody for an explanation.- But she understood enough to see that she was looked down upon, and she naturally had an intense desire to avenge herself, to humble her compan ions, and fire them wnth rage and envy. Accordingly, when Madame Bonnivet informed her "on their return, with a solemn face, that slie would introduce her to a protector a noble and rich pro tector her first sensation was one of joy ful surprise ; and her aunt, who had not expected such a reception for her news, proceeded in raptures. 'Yes, my darling niece, an admirable person in all respects a person who will secure your happiness, and a provision for your aunt; and indeed he can't do less, after all the trouble aud expense yonr education has cost me.' Then the good aunt wiped away a few tears; and Judith, who was moved at the appearance of so much tenderness, only ventured to ask w ho was the protector, and how she had deserved such gene rosity 'You shall know in good time, replied the aunt, but in the meau time your com panions will die with spite.' This was the very thing Judith wanted ; and great indeed was the surprise when the intelligence became known in - the green-room. ... .. . .. 'Is it possible? a creature like. that! a figurante a chorus-girl, and I a first dancer 'tis disgusting.' 'Quite right ! said the others ; she1 is so good ; she deserves her good luck she is so sweet and pretty.' . , And, in short it it had lieen a marriage to a duke, they could not have made more exclamations, or envied Jier advancement more sincerely. , . . - . And there could no longer , be, any doubt upon the subject, when her aunt appeared that evening in a magnificent shawl of Ternaux. But who eould this protector lie ? some rich old curmudgeon some gouty old bachelor, or worn out roue? But to an these questions Judith maintained a prudent reserve one good reason of which probably was, that she did not know a syllable about the matter. In a few days she had quitted the por ter's lodge to live with - her aunt in a charming suit of rooms . in the Rue de 1 Province a bed-room furnished splen didly, and a boudoir so tasteful, so ele gantly fitted up, that her aunt never ventured to approach it she -preferred sitting iu the dining parlor, or indeed in the kitchen; she felt so much more at ease there than elsew here. : -i Hut day after day p.-tssd on, and no body apieared, which struck Judith as something rather strange; for Judith was -without education, but not : w ithout sense. Her candor ami f"rte proceeded from innocence, not from stupidity; and after thinking over her position for some time, she would have given the world for some one toconsult for someone to de fend her against this protector whom she did not know, and whom she feared and bated: It is true, the only Itlea she had formed of him was of an ugly old man ; for her companions had p'ivp.'iretl her for nothing else by their conversations. She accordingly trembled and had almost fainted with agitation, when ou the fifth day, her aunt threw ohu the door ami announced the expected visitor. Judith would have risen to receive him with proper resiioct, hut her limbs shook, and she sank back upon the sola. When at length she raised her eyes, she saw standing liefore her a handsome young man of twenty-two or twenty three yeas of age, of a noble and elegant appearance, who looked at her with a kind and benevolent expression, liioue instant she felt sho was safe. A jierson who looked at her w ith so soft a smile would lie her defender from all evil, ami she could have nothing to fear. "Mademoiselle," he said, in a calm and resjiectful tone; but perceiving that Madame Bonuivet was still in the room, ADVERTISING HATES. space. 1 1 w. 8 w. J li w. 3 ni. I 6 in. I li m 1 inch. $i.
