Thus mat ters stood, when Annie was led to form and execute what will appear a very strange resolution But she was a rcso Iiua irirl. We must now go back six o - years. One dark, rainy morning in Novem ber. as our old friend was looking compo sedly at the cheerful fire in the giaie of hia nndiitintr room, really indulging in some serious reflection on the past and future fur future, too a gentleman pre sented himself and enquired for Mr. Bre men.

Tell me not his birth is humbls, ' That his parentage is low j Is lie honest in his actions t That's all I want to know. Is his word to be relied on ? ' Has his character no blame T Then I care not if he is low-born Then I ask not whence his name. Would he from an unjust action Tu m away with scornful eye ! Would hp, tlinn defraud another, ' Sooner on the scaffold die ? ' Would he spend his hard earnings On it brother in distress ? Would he succor tho afflicted, And the weak one's wrongs redress? Then he's a man deserving Of my love and esteem ; And I care not what his birth-place in the eye of muu may seem. Let it bo a low. thatched hovel ; Let it be a clay-built cot: Let it be a parish work' house In my eye it matters not. A.id, if others will disown him As inferior to their cacte, Let them do it I befriend him As a brother to the last. From the London Court Gazelle. AN ADVENTURE OF CHARLES II. There is not in lbs British Indies fairer valley than the Vale of Dolgelly or one that combines sweetness and mag nificence in such perfect and varied beau ty. But when the storm sweeps from the hills, and to the darkness of night is added ihe gloomy shadow of the mountain when every stream becomes a torrent, and mingles its roar with the howls of the blast ; when the vapory clouds hang in blackness, and shroud not only the aid he "ye have brought me into a for- talic instead of a hostelry." 'It is, in truth, somewhat of both, and as occasion requires serves for either; but that little recketh, thou shall fine good entertainment, and tby steed shall be cared for." . . It was now too latp to retreat, and the avalier dismounting, and giving his horse to the groom, entered the building1, followed by his companions. He no sooner seated himself than Scainpgrace again audresed hun. "Sir Cavalier, you must even give us up your papers and arms, bul when Major Holdenburgh re turns, and is satiehed with thee and thine errand, in the morning thou mayest de part without further question." "By St. George of England : said the cavalier, starting to his feet, "this is bul churlish courtesy. Ye have invited ine hither, and now- Small words will suffice," replied the other. "We have orders to guard-f the mountain passes, and to arrest all suspicious persons. So give up the pa pers and weapons at once, and save us the trouble of takinsr them . By rougher means. The' eves of the cavalier flashed with anger at the cool determined manner of the round-head, and lie secmeu as 11 uis posed forcibly to effect his retreat; but a moment s reflection showed linn Ine mad ness of such an attempt and unbuckling his belt, he flung his sword on the table, threw down his pistols, and declaring he had no papers to submit, gloomily resu med his seat. Thero was something in the air of the youth that repelled closer communication with his captors, and made them reluct ant they knew not why to come to extremities, they forbore, therefore, 10 search or lay hands on him, but in a more respectful tone, invited him to par take of the cheer which had jusl been laid on the board. "Ah !" cried Scampgrace, "here comes the daughter of our host, fair Ellen Wynne, and I warrant for no other ob Say not so," replied the cavalier, "the eyes my prety Ellen that can break hearts, can also undo iron bars. ' Is there no sol dier of the guard that calls himself the lover of Lllen Wynne! . "Alas '." said Ellen in a lone ot des pondency, "he is far from here, and it would go hard with him H he leu into the hands of lhe troops of Crom well- But I liavs sent a messenger to him, and were you once beyond these walls, and would find Edgar Vaughan and a true and trusty escort.''

S'death, Ellen, couldn't thou but procure me a brand, I would even- Here a suppressed scream from the maiden caused the cavalier to pause, and turning to the door, he perceived the dark look of lhe soldier, who at supper had so closely watched him, fixed scowling and steadily upon the maiden and himself. At that instant the sound ot advancing horsemen was heard.

Altogether, we would sooner look on him as a jolly, boon companion in a drinking bout- than the founder of a new religion. It is not our intention here to jive a history of the Mormons as that has been often done bul merely to relate what we know. After close reading of their books, es pecially the book of Mormon, which treats very little about religious matters, and conversing with their chief men, we concluded as follows: that the mormon religion was a compound Judaism, which was shown by their sometttnes offering sacri fices, and -latterly but not then- stranger, might have aroused the attention of a more apathetic gallant than he.
