The Gilder's Apprentice.
Br FREDERICK HUNTER. .
There lived io Lancaster, England, some
years ago, a thrifty gilder, who had an ap
pi entice under his guardianship a bright lad
who had received a very fair education before
he commenced to learn his trade, and who
hud been very successful as a mechanic He
was a handsome youth, too, and, alter a five
years' service, he attained the age of twenty
years, and became quite a man, in many re
spects. ' ,r ' ;
Edwin Wilson for that was the appren
tice s name had formed an acquaintance
with the only Jaunliter of a retired merchant
residing in the next'street, and an ardent and
mutual attachment succeeded. Mr. Elwyn,
the father of Ada, was a man of considerable
wealth ; and thouoh he had come up, to his
present position, from the original profession
ef a clei k in a small haberhasher's establish
ment, still he had high notions of his own con-
sequence and importance in society. Mr. El-
,wy was tK.n and felt that he had a right to
display his aristccratic notions in his own way.
And the lordly merchant did not, therefore,
favor the advances of the humble apprentice.
1 he proud Mr. klwjn saw that Ins child's
hopes were wrapped up in the hadsome youth
who had at hist so nearly reached his majori
ty and he begun to be unevy as to the fu
ture; He culled his dan" liter aside, at last,
and said :
Mv, Ada, I am not unmindful of the pref
erence you have indulged for young Wilson
the apprentice of Lockwood. W bat nave
you done how are you committed to htm Y
tin loves me, lather, responded the sweet
girl, 'and with your blessing, he will make me
his wife, he says., , .
'Stop, then, Ada where you are!'
'How, father?' ' '
'He is but a poor mechanic' ;
'1 know it.'
'You are my only child.'
'1 am rich." - ' '
'The world says so, father but
'Hear me, Ada, The young man has not
fifty pounds io the world.. Would you wed a
beggar?' , - . . ..
o, father! I would wed Edward Wilson,'
replied his daughter, innocently."
'No, my daughter; he is beneath your po-
snion, in every way; and 1 can consent to no
such sacrifice. I am decided you must think
of him no morel'
This was crushing intelligence to the ten
der hearted Ada, who had not suspected such
an answer, when she resolved to appeal to her
father on this subject. But, though Mr. EI
wyn was opposed to such a union, he had but
the one objection to his daughter's suitor. He
could find no,staid upon his character, he
could raise no opposition to his claims, save
thnt the youth was penniless. Still he was
Having thus contrived to throw his daugh
ter into the deepest mental distress, he went
over to his friend, the gilder, and commenced
to chide him for permitting the youth to have
forced himself thus upon the affections of his
' 'He has nothing to support her with,' he
'He has an excellent trade, sir,' said his
roaster.' ": ' ' ' - ,
. I care nothing for that,' replied the irritat
ed parent. ; . ,.
'He is an accomplished workman '
, 'He is nobody, sir! He has neither friends
nor family connexions, nor the more impor
tant of considerations in these matters, money.
I have do fancy for a mechanic, and shall not
submit that my only daughter shall suffer by
such an unequal alliance.'
'Edwin will be one and twenty at Christ
mastime, sir. ' 1 think he would make your
daughter a good husband, and would care
well for her.' i . . -:
'I don't believe it 1 He shan't marry her
he shan't, at least till he is able to take such
care of her as her father has hitherto.' ' And
with this tart answer, Mr. Elwyn departed.
" As he went hastily out of the gilder's shop,
he did not observe the movements of an old
gentleman who had overheard his remarks,
and who advanced as the man of wealth and
high notions left. '
'Of whom did he speak?' queried the gen
tleman of Edwin's employer.
It is a trifling affair,1 sir,' 6aid the master.
Unfortunately, an apprentice of mine a my
worthy young man, now a master of his busi
ness, by the way has conceived a passion for
this gentleman a daughter; and as the father
is rich, he has interposed his authority, and
refuses to permit the youth's advances, on the
score of his poverty. But here he is he will
enlighten you, perhaps,' continued the gilder,
as Edwin made hia appearance from above
stairs. , - ' :" -w ? "'
The old gentleman apologized, kindly, for
his apparent interference, mid commenced at
once to interrogate tha apprentice.
How Jong have you worked at your trade,
Edwin ? he inquired. , 1 ' i
"J? ivb years, sir.
'And your age is' '
'Twenty-one, at ChristmasTsir.' '
YouTiave formed an attachment for a young
lady above your "position in society?"
Yes, sir as the wor.d views it
'And her father positively objects to. your
marrying her?' . ... ,
HMea.be. sir ..... -. -----This
is certainly rfot new to you !'
'I feared such a decision, sir; but he lias not
as yet declared himself. to me.' ,; iii. ' -
I he rest was soon explained to J&dwtn, and
the gentleman, who was connoisseur in art,
then turned to an elaborate nnd exquisitely
finished mirror frame, of an expensive charac
ter, which was displayed in the show case of
his employer, and continued . '
Whose handiwork is this.
Edwin blushed, and answered that he had
aided in finishuip: it. v ,
The design and completion of that piece of
work,' chimed in his employer, instantly, 'be
longs to Edwin, himself. He did it all.' -Ii
'It is beautiful, and very chaste,' added the
stranger, slowly; 'but it is too small.'
'tor what purpose, sir .''
For mv purpose. You can make me one
t mean two, Edwin can you not, twice the
size of these ?' ' - : r ;
Yes, sir,' responded the apprentice, flatter
ed with such an order.- ! :.
'How long a time will be requisite to com
plete them in?'
'Twice the size of these you said ?'
'Yes. Let them be of your best workman
ship, and spare no pains to render them 'ele
gant, I design to present them, for drawing
room mirrors, to a young friend of mine.'
, 'They can be finished in two months.'
Take plenty of time, Edwin; say three
months.' s : ' ! -: '--'V
That will be amply sefficient, sir.' ; , .
'It is well. That will be November. I will
leRve all to your good taste.'
Thank vou,' said Edwin, cratefully.
Bear in mind that price is no consideration
with me in this matter; I give you carle
hlancher. In three months, I will call for
'In the mean time continued the stranger,
turning to the roaster of the establishment, 'as
we are not acquainted with each other, here is
my card. Call upon Faber, my bankei. who
will satisfy you , of my responsibility. . And
with this he bade master and apprentice 'good
day, and departed. ' , ' 1 '
The card bore the name of James Wort hen,
only; , but subsequent inquiry , convinced the
gilder that the order was a substantial one,
and the work was commenced forthwith, by
his apprentice, to whose charge be committed
The father of Ada was obdurate. Edwin
was forbidden to visit the premises, or to come
in contact with his daUchter; and with a mel
ancholy spirit, he commenced his work which
was to be completed in JNovember. Jn JJe
cember following, he would be twenty-one,
and despite his disappointment, he resolved to
finish bis term ot apprenticeship, honorably,
and to hope for better in the future.
The mirrors were completed, and a master
piece of work they proved, when finished.
In this peculiar line of workmanship, Edwin
was not equalled in all London! The designs
of these mirrors were magnificent; they" were
finished without a Haw, and the best ludcres
pronounced them inapproachable. The three
months expired, to a day, and the strange old
gentlman appeal ed, promptly, to order them
He was delighted with them they surpass-
d his expectations. The . bill was a heavy
charge, but he paid it, instnnter, nnd the mir
rors were sent to a fine house in Bond street
The fame of the manufacturer was fixed.
Edwin was happy that he had been so suc
cessful and then he thought once more of
Ada. Me would be 'free,' in a month. - But
he was poor her father would not" relent
nnd he was deeply distressed an-ain, -at his
Lute in November. Mr. Elwyn received a
note fron Worthen, requesting him to wait up
on him at No. 16 Bond St., on important busi
ness; and the wealthy gentleman ordered his
carriage thither, accordingly. He was shown
into a gorgeously decorated drawing-room, at
once, on reaching the house, where an elder
ly man met him civilv, and , invited him to be
seated. -., . r - - ., ,
"I am happy to meet you. Mr. Elwyn,' said
his new acquaintance. 'You are acquainted
with a young man by the name of Wilson, I
think.' , -
No, sir!' said the aristocrat
'No V queried the other. 'Edwin Wilson I
mean; the gilders apprentice.'
'No, sir. That is to say I have no particu
lar acquaintance with him. I do not associate
with such persons. -
. 'I am aware of that, Mr. Elwyn ; but you re
member the name, i presume.
'Yes, yes; I have heard of this boy.'
'Hesought your daughter's hand.'
Did he?' ' - .--
So I am informed.'
"Then his impudence only equals his low
breed inff and his poverty, sir.'
'He is not 'low bred,' Mr Elwyn ; I think he
is not impudent; and I know he is not so poor
as you imagine V
What, sirl He is a mechanic! He hasn'i
a guinea, and he seeks my daughter's fortune.
I am worth ten thousand pounds, sir.
So is he. Mr. Elwyn!'
. ''What! exclaimed the aristocrat, with a
henrty laugh, at this retort 'Upon my word,
Mr. Worthen, you. know the boy better than
do, :t seems.' .. . .-
'I am not jesting, Mr. Elwyn,' continued
the old gentleman, seriously.
'I am a widower, without children. I have
satisfied myself that young Wilson is worthy
of even your daughter's hand. You are worth
ten thousand pounds. I am worth tortv thou
sand. This house belongs to Edwin Wilson.
I furnished it, as you now find it myself as
mnrriage present for him ; and with it I giv
him a fortune equal to your own. He will at
tain his majority in twenty days. Are you
content that he becomes your Son-in-law, un-
der these circumstances?' " : v " i -'
'This is a very different case, you pprceive,
Mrs Worden Worthen, I mean' replied the
aristocrat, deeply . embarrassed.; .'I will con
sider the proposal, and if' .-, "
i 'If you do not consent, a union will undoubt
edly occur between .your daughter nnd this
spurned mechanic. Here is the deed of this
mansion I am in earnest' , .
The father of Ada was perplexed ; but in a
few minutes he arose, and said: . .
I accept your proposal, sir."
'It is well, sir. . I am f glad you are so in
clined. Wait a moment'
The bell-pull was sprung, and an attendant
entered. . ; .1- :
'Show the gentleman hither from the east
parlor,' said Mr. Worthen. u,;-
My young friend is here, already,' continu
ed the old man and the next moment id
win entered the drawing room.
'Edwin,' he said, 'I present yoti to the fath
er of your future wie, Mr. Elwyn. .You have
met before no apologies no affection no
scenes now it is nil explained. -This is your
bouse, you are as rich as he is; shake hands,
and be friends.' , : : - r n.,. ' 1. : - . : -
Matters were quickly explained, , to the en
tire satisfaction of all the parties, nnd the ec

Tnc Ceremonies at tbc Capitol.
,. ... .. Washington, July 4th.
The great event of laying tlie eorner stone
of the extension or tne Capitol, hnB transpir
ed. The day has been most propitious and
the occasion improved by thousands who have
taken the opportunity of witnessing.the aug
ust ceremony f laying the corner stone. .
After the corner stone had been laid in an
impressive manner,. Tor the south, wing of the
extended capitol, by ,Mr. Fillmore, assisted
by the Alosonic fraternity ot the Uislncl, (a
ceremony which was wittnessed by more than
10,000 people, and performed in the presence
of the principal functionaries of the Govern
ment,) the scene of interest . was changed to
to the east front ot the Capitol, where were
assembled the most distinguished men in
Washington. belonging to ; the civil, service:
the Ar .ny, the Navy, and every department of
the General Government
Mr. French . the Masonic Grand Master,
made a very appropriate address upon the ac-
cassion. Ueorge Washington, he said, laid
the foundation.of the old, Capitol fifty -eight
years ago. The identical gravel which Wash
ington used, had been used to-day in laying
he corner stone of the naw edifice. When
the corner stone was laid in . 1"7S3 the
country did not contain four millions. Now
it exceeds twenty three. Washington, upon
the first occasion, invoked God's benediction
upon the country. . He expressed the hope
that the Almighty would consecrate the lib
erties nnd happiness of the American people
and from his day down to the time in which
theomce of the President of the United btntes
was filled by its present occupant filled
worthily too, and with an integrity, dignity
and success that commanded general acknow
ledgements, these blessings of liberty had
been perpetualad among us.
Mr. French did not forget to tell his hear
ers what every man here believes, (whatever
others may say or think elsewhere,) that the
country, during the year past, had been res
cued from the greatest peril. The men who
had contributed to the end of peace and com
promise, were such men as Clay, Webster,
Cass, Foote, Dickinson. Houston, and others
of eminent note. All of these, Mr. Webster
excepted, Mr. French said were Masons, and
and brethren of themistic tie. -
:Mr. Webster's Oration. Mr. Webster
rose with an intense sun failing upon his
head, and kept his post for about two hours,
his oration covering 84 manuscript paces.
He was' received with the uplifted voices of
the throng around him,' end with every poss
ible demonstration of respect The President
his associates of the Cabinet, the Generals,
and officers of the Army in their" uniforms,
the officers of the navy, the subordinate civil
officers of the Government, and a great body
of volunteer military from the District and
neighbor hood,- were among his auditors, be
side the thousand from the ranks of the peo
ple who had assembled in the city. Though
complaining of fatigue, his whole manner indi
cated a physical strength not much inferior to
the intellectual powers of the distinguish
ed orator. ...... .1 . ,
The President Our Candidate.
We take pleasure in seconding the choice
of the Whig State Convention by raising the
banner of Hero of Chippewa and Lundy's
Lane, General Winfield Scott, for the Pre
sidency in 1852. He is. the favorite of a
majority yea, near the universal first choice
of the Whigs of Ohio, and we entertain not
a doubt that the election of 1S52, wilt show
him largely in the ascendant in this State, and
the triumphant choice of the Union. He was
our first choice in 1844 and 1848, and 1. we
shall take unalloyed pleasure in sustaining
him to the best of our ability henceforth uutil
the battle shall be fought and won.

WINNING A1 HEART
BT .W. P. BAITLETT. i: ! "
i It was not long aero that I was chatting
with my blue-eyed cousin Adele, about story
writing, when she gave roe the following ex
tracts from letters that she had received from
an intimats acquaintance, 'saying to me as she
gave them, that "perhaps they would' excite
in me a smile, but that a woman's heart would
understand them. . - .. kl .
I took the extracts from ther and read the
following:, J , . 1 ...

I have lain for many a sweet, hour.. It plavs

I am alone now as the sun is setting, and I
wish you were here. There is a new comer
in pur liltle village, 3 A. week ago to day, a
young man by the name of Henry Davenport

hotel . Uncle, William was introduced to him
in New' York last winter. '. But knows noth

a noble soul. ' T here is, however, a look of de
fiance upon his face, and not a Tittle' pride In

bound to conquer his heart . Our name's are
written in due order.'and we are each to take
bur regular turri at trying to" win his heart,
and report progress to the band.. Now we

Adelet , Jf your will listen to me, I will talk to
you of i yesterday. . Earlyin; the' morning 1
sauntered out carelessly, book tn hand, for a
stroll in the public garden." It was a very
sweet morning, and the 'birds, sang merrily,
and I. was merry too, for I do not walk in the
garden without purpose. I was . merry, and
so tripped carelessly along -tbe'igravel walks,
until 1 enme to a bower where . the spring is
hidden among the shrubbery that surrounds
it:, and who should I meet but Harry! 1 ut
tered an apology for my intrusion, but he arose
and asked me to sitdown on. the bench in the
bower. I don't know why -hut I blushed
I, who came to lay a snare, for. him, felt very
much like being snared -myselL-n There was
something in his dark,' passionate -eye that
makes my heart Hi rob faster than when 1 am
alone in my chamber. .1 ' ) vi.ii '-
r'He was reading 'St Agnes' ,ve,' beeaid
'that exquisite poem of poor Keats' ;! and he
promised that if I would miiet h,im to-morrow,
here, he would read it to me, ; And 1 have
promised to meet him here to morrow -da not
fear for m, for I guess-1 don't love him yet,
dear Adei I guess I don (love him yetl
15th. Four days have-passed away since
I wrote you last, 1 told you that I had prom
ised to meet Henry in the bower, to hear him
read 'at Agnes Eve.'. - I. met him there be
fore the dew was off the grass. ,The brooklet
murmured sweetly, and -the iowers smiled,
and the little birds twittered and chirped away
happy and-r-I will confess it I was happy.
.'With his rich melodious voice lie read that
delicious poem, and I found that I had never
known the half of the beauties it contains. I
w ish you could hear him read: it, Adele, for
his voice brings to the. surface - every hidden
beauty. ...v ..-. v. ,,;. a 4iit ' ,.; h-.
'When he had finised it he timidly glanced
at me for you know such sweet things leave
a something in the heart that makes one tim-1
orous he timidly glanced ac me and closed
the book, I essayed to praise the poem and hia
voice, but a stammering came upon my
tongue, nnd I felt the blood rush to my cheeks.
And then Jiut, I will not.tcll you how Icorti
trived to fly away from my awkward situation.
That night I. was ; obliged to report to' the
band I am afraid I deceived some of them,
. '20 th, Adele!. shall I let you gaze at my
heart?. Can I help it? for Icommenced tell
ing you of my wild ad ventureof charmingj lo!
1 -but wait a moment and I will tell you all,
my dear and long trid friendL, , Yesterday, as
I sat hy Henry's side in the' bower, he gave.
me arose bud. 1 knew its language, and the
secret, and the secret of my soul ran foolishly:
from my heart to my face. My deep blushes,
he said, embolden him, and he, knelt before
me and told me that he loved , me, and asked
me if I could love him,, , What couldj X do,
Adele, frightened us I was, but murmur 'yes'
and lay my head upon hii, bosom? When 1
heard the beating of his noble heart,, then, if
never before, I knew that I loved him.; j Yon
never did hear the birds sing as they did then,

To nigiil I have engaged to report to .'the
