How Harry Fell in Love.
All the gii Is in Flowerdale w ere in love!
with Henry Vernon. That is to suy, they
admired him excessively, und were ready tu
fall in " love il he should lead the way. Fan
ny Homers, the little witch wis the only ex
ception. Merry, dancing, and pretty as a
(airy, it was n question whether she had ever
thought cl luve; if she had, she never Ulkud
of it.
Harry's futjicr was n Senator in Congress,
and he himself was a young lawyer of bril
liant talents, finished education und hand
some fortune. It was not known that his la
ther wished him to marry, and did not, as
is often the cuso, insist on hi selecting 00.
heiress. The now gray-haired old states
man had made a lovematob in iiis youth, and
Blill worshipped ihe memory of the wile he
had too early lost. "Let your ieurt choose,
my son," he said, "marriage, without true ul
fociion, holds out but a poor bhow furhappi
ilees. Mostof those, ot directly interested in the
cvu.ti thought that Isabel Forlcscue would
carry oil' the prize. She was decided'y the
bsiie ..( i.,r village. Having, received her
education at a lnshiuiiublc bCiniuary, there
'vim scarcely an accomplishment of which
abei.could not boast, besides, the family ofj
Vernon an J Frti-M-m had '.urn Hie leading
OlMrS in the country for two generations; and
Cbe gossip.- s.iid 'I, at '.he union ol the two
furluBes, und of the united iuUuence, would
grv II ry a posiliou a I mow unrivalled.
.Certain it is that Harry visited Isabel very
'often. Tim: e u lio i lined lie. aeen.-ed her ol
nwat:.uvciiii;: to win I. .in. "Thiowh bersell j
HFltis way continually," said one. '-Did
Hh any body," said another, "see a gir!
OialTe lave so ,barelaetilly .''' She oiiglil to
bpt him, I'm sure," sneered another, ,'lor she
UM tried, hard enough." Nevertheless, as j
HmNrol chroniclers, we must record the fact
that some ol these very young ladies, such is
the infirmity ot hunmi nature, did their very
E rattiest to uut-mauoeuvru Isabel, and get
larry for themselves.
Harry had not seen Fanny since she was
child. It was only a month since she hud
left school and returned home again; und the
first time she joined in (he village social cir
cle was at a pic-nic. Hero her blooming'
complexion, graceful figure and riuging laugh I
had been the theme of uduiirutioo by all the
beaux, t ie envy of the belles. Hurry had
been her partner in a dance or two, and, in
common with many others, felt it would bo
buly civil to call upon her, So the morning
.after the party hr sallied forth to make the
round Ol the w'lage girls.
He first vitit. d L abel. She was reclining
on fsnteutl, charmingly dressed and read
ing a Hovel. All she could talk about was I
her futiguo. Vet that she looked bewitch- I
ing, was ihco'nlcs'iblc, in Ihe" subdued llglit 1
o! thut sumptuous parlor, with elegant pic- i
tures on the Walljboijuels of flowers all abort, i
u nd an a! Unisphere of exquisite refinement I
tiround. ' Never hud Hany felt so much I
templed tu be in love. He stayed nearly nn
hour, when he had intended to stop only a I
few minutes; un.l would not, perhaps, have I
gone then, if other gentlemen hud not drop- j
ped in. Frotn Isabel's he went to several t
other In uses. Everywhere he foum the
young iadies dressed to receive Ihe company, i
Some were reading novels; some had'n hook
of pretty poetry open before them, and one i
whe had u pretty hand was coqutishly knit
ting a purse. Not one of I htm seemed to
huve anything serious to do. Most of ihrm i
affected, like Isabel, to be quite languid, and
talked tail the fatigues of the day before had Ij
nearly killed then; . i
When Hairy reached the pretty, butun- (
pretending cottage where Fanny resided (
w ith her widow ed mother, he found t!io hall ,
dour epen to admit tho breeze, and so, just
tapping at the perlor entrance, he entereu
bowing. In the shaded fight of the cool fra
grant room, he could not, for a moment, see; i
but be noticed immediately that im one nn- i
IWered his salutation; and directly he noticed
that the apartment was empty. Just then, i
however, a fresh, Itqtlin voice, as merry as u i
bird's in June, was heard warbling in an in- ,
tier apartment. Harry, listened aw hilo.char
uicd, but finding that his knocking wus not
heard, and recognizing, as he thought, Fan- j
ny's voice, finally made bold to go in search (
of tiie singer. Passing dot n the hall, and '
through Another open door, ho suddenly found ,
bin, self in the k'.Uhen, a large, airy apart- I ,
meat, scrupulously clean, with Fanny at the 1 ,
end opposite to him, standing before a dough ' ;
trough, kneading Hour, and carolling like a t
lark. j,
It was a picture an artist would have lo-
(red to paint. Fanny's face was seen partly
in profile, show ing to perlcY.tion her long
lashes, miu bringing out in relief the pou;ing
lips and round chin. The breeze blew her i
brown curls playfully about, and occasionally
JUite over her face, at w hich time she Would
throw them back with a pretty toss of her
head. Her urms were bare; and rounder,
whiter or more toper arms never Were; they
fail ry put to blush with their rosy pearlness,
Ihe snowy flour powdered over them. As
she moved with quick steps at her task, her j
trim figure showed all its grace; und her neat
ankle and delicate foot twinkled in and out.
For awhile she did not observe Harry. It
w as not till she turned to put down ti'.u dred
ging box, that she beheld him.
Most of our fair readers) we suppose, would
have screamed, and perhaps have run out at
the opposite doer. She blushed a little, as
wus natural, hut having no Pulse shame, slid
saw no reason to he frightened merely he- i
cause n handsome young man had Caught her I I
at w ork. So she courtesied prettily, laughed i J
one of her gayest laughs, and said, holding f
up her hands j
' I can't shake hands with you, Mr. Ver- 1
n')l, you ajo. Mamma Was kind enough to j :
let me go to the pic-nic yesterday, and put ! '
off some of my work; and so I'm doing don
hlo work to-day to mike up for it. Ifyou'll '
be kind enough to wail a minute, I will call I 11
I It
'No, no,' said Harry .clnrmed by such frank
innocence, and uncennoniously taking a well- '
scrubbed chair, "I've only a few minutes to
stuy. My cull is on you, I cuine to see how '
you boro the fatigues ol yesterday.'
Fanny laughed till her teeth, so white und '
jo little, looked behind the rosy lips, like
pearls set in the richest ruby enamel. "Fu- .v
tigued! Why we bad such a charming time '
yesterday, that one couldn't get tired, even if '
uiie had 'jcen a hundred years old.'
"You'll never grow old,' said Harry, sur- 1
prised lntu what would have been flattery, If '
he had sincerely thought it; und his counte- r
nance showed the admiration for ihe bright c
happy CreatUre before him. v
Fanny blushed, hut rallied, and answered j 1
laughing, "Never grow old! Oil, soon e- : '
nough. What futtfty sight I'll be, to be '
sure bent altnrift double, nud a cap on my 1
head 'ike grnnny Horn's." I "
Harry laughed, too, so ludicrous wus the 1
image; and thus he and Fanny were as much '
at home with each other at once, ns 1( ihey
had been acquainted for Some years.
The intended 'five minutes imperceptibly 1
grew into ten, and the ten into half an hour, i '
Fanny continued at her household work,1
pleasantly chattering the while, both she and I
Harry mutually so interested as to forget time 1
and placo ulike. At last the entrance ol 1
Mrs. Somers interrupted the tete-a-tete. I
Fanny was a little embarrassed, when she I
found how long she and Harry hud been a- '
lone; but the easy matter-of-courso manner r
of Harry as he shook hands with her mother, 1
restored her to herself. "
If the elegant refinement about Isabel had '
tempted Harry tu fall in love, the household '
charm which surrounded Fanny forced him 1
lo do so whether or no. He went away, 1
thinking to hunself vhat a charming wife t
Funny would make, and how sweetly she
wnuld look in her neat, home dress, engaged c
in her domestic duties. Nor is Harry the 1
only young bachelor who remembers that 11
a wife t annol always be in full dress, and 1
who naturally wishes to know how she wi I u
look in the kitchen. 1
'A wife ought as much to know how to f
manage her own house," he said to himself,
'as a man to understand his business. I 1
don't wish a wife of mine, indced.to be maid 1
of ull work; but I should like to have her ca- J
pable of overseeing her servants; and do- I
tocstics discover very soon whether their r
mistress js competent, and obey, er disregard 1
her accordingly. Ah! ifi had such a dear
little wife, how I'd coay her to ga into he I
kitchen occasionally, that 1 might see her at '
work." 4
It soon became apparent that i, would be
Od fuull ol Harry, il he did nut have Fanuy
for a wife. Never was a man deeper in
love, nor did he mak an effort to co iceal it.
II id Funny been a foolish ilirt, she would
u.vo played with his feelings, us vain girls
WTI when, secure Of n laver. But she w as
too frank, und good lor this, nnd only hrsitu.
:ed long enough to be certain ol the state ol
rer own heart, when she made Harry hspiy
iy aci erting him
Two persons more fitted for each other, in
ract could nol be. Though always merry,'
jccnusc always haf.py, Fanny wus amiable,
ntelligcnt and toll ol sound sense. She had
cud and ihnught a great deal, especially for
jne so v Mug, Her heart ran over wi h 'un
WrittVtt poetry.' Hud Hsrry souuht. for a
iletime, he could not have found u wile so
ompanioiiabla, and so su led in every way'
.o him.
What a talk (ha engagement made when
teanieout! Tlie haughty Isabel, wh.i, illi
cit being half us capable of sincere love us
Fanny, hud made up her mind to have Harry,
uid whose vaniiy therefore, was piqued even
legradtd herself so much as to call the bride
;lcct "an artful and intriguing puaa." Olh
r disappointed beauties had other hard names
'or Finny. But though when our heroine
irst heard ol these slanders, sho shed a lew
lears. she soon dried her eyes. 'or, with Har
y's love, nothing could make her long un
,appy. It was not until the young couple had .-.ci
iff en their w edding tour that Harry told his
vile what had first made him fa.l in love
villi her.
'Every other girl I visited that morning,'
16 said, 'was playing the tine lady; and that
v hi le, as I well knew, their mothers were
iftcn slaving in Ihe kitchen. I reasoned that
he daughter who would neglecl her dutv lo
t par;nt, could scurcelv he less selfish to
vurds a husband, Besides, it is a common
nor with your sex. now a-days, to suppose
hat it is debasing lo engage in domestic do
les. To a man of sense, dearest, a woman
lever looks more attractive than ut such a
ime. As WadswOflll writes :"

Aa he recked those lines, w ith exquielt.1
lens'i'uility, he put his anil around Fanny's
valati and drew her towards him; and the
uung wife, looking up IntO'hU lace, with
levoted all'. ction, restd her head .in his bos

fit. When Mr. Sickles got there he couldn't

many long winded speeches, bnl talked right
to the pint, ami got through in a lew days.
Tlie metntara chose mu l,reidellt of Ihe

was nearest akin to QiBffal Jackson of any 1
ol 'e'n. and the honor belonged to me; so I
u. .d lo lake llm cheer. I returned thanks
U,r the honor ol course, un.i then proe. t iled
to business, I beginned by ca I li u lor the
reports of th MOldlilttW lhat had Ihe busi

I culled ! or the raftfrt on Hnglan.l first
out of respect in her l'cln ejr venerable old
mother. Mr Silkies, who wn the head of
that committee, reported that J.diu Bull was
nn btotiMl te old logy, utid hud fuuiif it vary
hurdto make any iinprei-ion upon him. The ,
pi ople all seemed to b tied to the Qi . en's

more about Deiu 'cracy than a hor.-e doc
about his grandfather. Si II he had faith to
j believe that they could be made to take it, i
und when the '.imo comen he was reudy t
i.fl'coat and roil up his sleeves and whip it in

Upon the question of aeeeptlrg Mr. Sik '.c'sj
report, Mr. Ituchanm rosy and said he ob- I1
jected to the term o! I fogy; be never did like I.
llio term, and he thought it would do m ire
hurt than good in tin report, and he moved
that il be struck out. Mr. Sanders said no; 1
that w is the cream of the report, m i '. he ob-'
jv led to its being struck out. It W i : - - l '
put to vote, and Mr. Buv. aanan and '!. M- '
son voted to b'.rike it out and Ihe res. v'mici
to 1eep il in; so old fog'y s'aiids in the top irtl 1
by a strong majority.
1 then culled for tie report on Franc. I
Mr. fj mdera made a long report; hut thel1
j substance was that tlio Deal icratic crop in''
Frante wasn't quite ripe enough to harvest. ' 1
.Napoleon had liiled the people's heads so
full of the Fistern war at d glory that they 1
j conldn'S think of nothin' else. But said Mr. 1
j Sanders, "there's a good time comia,' bays;

I I then calledjfof the report on Spair;. 1

He further states that he was betrayed by

de Bo.lherg, the Russian cinliassa.Ixr at Bar
ST. PETERSBURG, Nov. 6 (Oct. 25.) 1853.

which vve receive Irom nil sides provea to us
t, at the present momei t, the German
GuVcmetOetO aie nearly all occupied with
; an- and the same fear 'hat ot beholding, on
i tiie Baettrn qoestien, a achiam break outbe
t . ft :i ihe t a great German Powers, which
in g it place in danger the tranquility of the
; eommn country, and even the existence of
th6 U-rman Conteiieraliou.

j iahei , in the present conjuncture, and in
. aamecb as depends upon btm, to prerva
Uermany from tbs scourges with which she
a i ;.,! i' asaejaeed la such an eventuality.
V no are, in c oii j , nc e, M. r ilarou, at
tboriaed tooeciare to Ihe Prussian Cabinet
that the Bmperor ie disposed io take part in
. m '. i o:i- .voich wuuid huve for object tha
re s ablisbment of peace, end to which the
i four pSopoaitloni .n lie a tea below would
serve u- s uiting poin', as t'ormuijted, vis:
I. A commou guarantee by tbefife Pow
ers ulth: religious and civil rights of the
I Cbrietian population ol the Ottoman Kmpiro,
I without distinction of form o' worship,
2. Protectorate oT the Principalities ex-erci-ed
in common by the Ihe Powers, on
Has samS conditions as stipulated ill their fs
por by our treaties with the Porte.
3. Pevision nt tin' treaty of IMU Rus
sia will not oppose its abolition, .f the Sul
ttn, the 'principal party interested, consents
4. Free navigation o! the Dmube, which
exists dtjure, tod w hich Boeaia never bad
. the intention ot preventing.
This determination is founded rationally
upon the supposition that the Western Pow
f ers'u ,.! faitkfntly tuitii the engagement which
; t!,ey hdve contracted in the lace of Uurope,
lo sssors the future condition of tlie Chris
tian population of the Ottoman empire, that
their re:. J nS and c v. I rigtits shall hence
forth ho placed under the guarantee: of all
t::e Powers, and that lius tiie principal ob
ject Ri sia had in v ew in the present war
, shall have been attained.
If the sentiments which induced bis Ma
Ijesty tha Bmperor to make the prateut deela
a o i are ii pi ei ir. ed in Germany, as '.ve sup
posethey aill be, we think ihat we may
c i .rish the hope that the Confederation, uni
ted on fiie sju.c ground, and perteclly reas
sured oa trie German interests ergaged in
I the qneition, will torn its unanimity to lc
: c-iunt tu throw its bulsnce iute the scales of

satisfy them completely.

ot Ru-s a, tu briag fertvurd new SOnditioBSi
lac una alibi e ii aubatance and in farm with
his dignity, ihe Bmperor does not doubt that
' the Stales of the Confederation Will reject
aurh pretensions, from whatever side they
may came, as contrary to the sentimoata of
loyalty which animates them, as alee to the
true interests of Germany, A neutrality
maintained with firmness and perseverance,
such as we? proclaimed at the commence

A note, ad re-sd iy Count Nesaelrodc to
the Buaslan Minister st Berlin, about a
r.isnlh sgo, has made its appearance, in
which the Russian Cabinet sigaifles its sen

on the basis of the four points, n oditied lo

burgh. About ten days later, and after the
result of tiie batiie of Inkermena was known
by the t'zar, the Austrian Minister at St.
Petersburg!) was inforruec thai tho R issian
Government was disposed ta accept the four
pjitits without these modifications, In both
c is. s it is evident that the H al ohject of tho
Russian Cabinet in maliiig these t eclara
tiona, waa to obtain :r im Germany "a neu
tra ity su.port w th f.rmness and pers-:ve-rar.ee;"
out, in b i h cas-'S, tho maneuver
seems to have fai ed, for even P.u'a a was
n it rest ained from concluding the aiditional
ur;i-l3 to h- r ire ity with Austria, and Austria
proceeded without any further deiuy te com
plete her treaty with the Wes ern Powers.
It cannot, for a moment, be supposed that the
