A voting girl from the window of a pleasant country parlor was chatting with a fine looking man, Fonio ten years her senior, who .vtood among the flowers be low, pelting her with roso buds glittering with dew. " Stop, stop, Mr. Mansfield" she said, as bhe twined a handful of flowers iu her dark curls. " What was that you asked mc ? I co'd not hear well." " Only to describe your beau ideal to me so I may know him if wc ever met' no said desisting iroin jus sport leaning on one arm upon the window sill, and gazing into her animated face with a smile. 44 Oh tint's easily done. He must be young and handsome." 44 That of course, or how could he as pire to the love of the charming Marion CHIT," rejoined her companion with a gal lant buw. 44 A truce to compliments, I pray you sir. Voting and handsome so much ou generality now I'll deeend to particu lar. Jle niut bo about twenty-two slender and finely formed graceful in his movements and courteous iu his man ner and let me see, what comes next?" 4k Features, Marion, eyes, hair, mouth, and all it n tints." 44 Thank vow, his features should be (Jreeian, his forehead high, broad and white; his eves ami hair the same hue and that a beautiful brown a brown, lark in the shadow, and light in the Mm." 44 Something like mine, eh, Marion? You needn't pout or lift your hand to hit me. 1 Jut to speak seriou.ly, didn't you mean me, when we were talking? If so, just say the word, and your ideal will be devincly real, as the pwet says." 44 Don't be foolish, Louis' she replied. 44 Co look in the glass at your Human face, black hair, whiskers and eyes, and see if the description suits. No, 1 have no desire to break my friend .lenny's heart by stealing away her wise colle gian. 44 That name sileno.es mo," said the student with an embarrase-d laugh. 44 Hut if I am not the lucky individual I jv iTtr r it) iy.r rfr-y rrj Py Ut'u'ii i'( that he is within twenty feet of you and eoiiui! nearer every moment. 44 Marion's oyes Jolluwvd liis as tliey louke-il down the orchard path, und saw a vutlftnan coming slowly toward the house, reading intently from a small vol ume iu his hand. Setting the roses u little more Leeominly in lier curls, (for she was bom a coquette,) she whispered. 44 Your college clium, Clinton, is it not? The party of last nirht deprived me of the pleasure of seeing him." 44 V s, we were late, and he too tired to o with me into the rooms, or I should have introduced him then. Hut this time i. still better. The plain pink morn ing dress nd rose buds, become you won derfully my belle cousin. 44 Flattery !" She laid her white and jewelled hand earrsnngly upon his shoul der and turned her graceful head within the room as if iu search of something. There was p.liey in the coquette's last movement and this was that a sudden glimpse of her glorious beauty might daz zle and astonish the student. Thus admonished, the apparently un conscious girl turned and raised her large and beautiful eyes to his lace. A rapid glance convinced her cousin's assertion. It was a face much like that of the ideal one she had pictured forth lor his amuse ment. 44 ('on sin Marion, let me introduce you to my boj;t and dearest friend, (Jodfrey Clinton," said Mansfield with a light touch upon the arm. 44 My cousin's friends are always wel come to me," she said removing her hand from Mansfield's shoulder and extending it to him. He took it with a firm clasp, that thrilled her through every vein. 44 How beautiful she is," thought the gentleman. 44 L will win hN heart before he leaves me," said the lady. Their eyes met as he relinquished her hand. Jloth blushed r. little, ami Mans Celd turned away to hide a smile when he saw his friend, whoso grae and steady aspect no woman's smile had ever before possessed the power to move beneath the magnetic influence of his cousin'.s hr.nd some eyes. The three lingered there but a few mo ments before the breakfast bell rang in the gnat hall; Mr. Mansfield sprang through the window and stood by hi companion's side, determined as he ?aid, to h ad her into the breakfast room though forty Clinton's stood in his way. At this folly, his friend only smiled, and turned away, passed round the house to gain the front entrance. 44 What now Louis?" asked Marion as he stood silent, looking absently from the window. "Not much, Marion, I was only won tiering if you would win fJodfrcy's heart as you have won so many others." I "Most certainly if I think it worth i my while to try, she nnwercd carcless-Iv." "Not Jfou. flirt with him, Marion Godfrey has aerer loved yet: but.hedc spisea conuetryand will never yield to a llirt. Hy your brighter and better self you will win him, I hope so from my heart , , . "Pshaw. Don't lecture coz. Will you wager your diamond ring against mine, that he is not my declared lover be fore he leaves." " If you propose to secure him by co quetry yes ?" " Done. Now take mc to breakfast, for I am terrible hungry." They passed on and took their peat at the pleasjuit family table. A moment after Godfrey Clinton entered, lookim? a little pale, and seeming a little cold. Throughout the day he wa.? much with Marion, but though his manner was cour teous and kind, she missed an undclinablo something that had chained her, at fir.t, and wondered if she had been deceived in tho toll-talc glance of his beautiful brown eyes. Ah! she had no means of knowing what you and I, dear reader, may dis cover namely, that Godfrey Clinton in! passing by tlie windows and doors had heard the heartless wager she had laid ! The days passed by; Marion, like God frey, was simply a gue.-t at her uncle's home, and at liberty to devote her whole time, if she choose to do so. Much of it was passed in his company, especially as the arrival of Jenny Harrison, her dearest friend, Mansfield's cousin as well as his betrothed bride took her gallant from her. While the young lovers absorbed in each other, took little heed of their friends they were traveling a most dan gerous road together. Marion loved strong ami beautiful poetry; tho deep musical voice of the student read it to her in tho lonely library ; she sketched: he always carried her portfolio' and point ed out the most beautiful views she rode and he was ever by her bridle rein if she chose to do so. Much of her time was passed iu his company espec ially when he sang, and her light touch was needed upon the piano to make the melody complete. A yet, all this familiar intercourse could not make him one whit more lover like than he had on the first unhappy nwivn l i u JAW. eYC nusticu now and .Hi .1 therein an (impassioned embrace: ll his hand trembled at the light touch of hers or his cheek paled and flushed at the n . s. i l.ll tanniijr ot her warm ureatn she never knew it. He was always quiet, rcservea and nthcr cold; never striving to seek the scat by her side, but taking it if all circumstances were favorable, exactly as he wculd have taking any chair and talk ing t her as he would and did talk to utiy other young and pretty girl. Marion was puzzled. For tho first time in her life she met him coldly; but ho did not seem to notice it; if she greeted him half tenderly, he wore a sarcastic air that made her angry and if it was the case, she tried to pique him by a desperate flirtation with another his soft brown eyes wore a mingle aston ishment and disgust that hurt her more than a thousand cutting rebukes lrom her cousin Louis could have done. That cousin Louis by the by, would often smile mischievously as he pased her and touch her dimond ring upon her left hand. Marion was proud as well as beauti ful and coquettish. Was she the ay city belle lor whose smihy a thousand haughty lovers had bowed in vain, to waste her time in this lonely out of the way-plaee simply because a prevcrse student refused to love her in prefer aneo to his books? She thought with a strange yearning of the crowded city and the countless friends who would lloek around her when it was known she had returned. She would give up her foolish wager present Jennie with her diamond ring, of which sho had tired long ago returned to her city homo and it the gravity of tho coming winter forget him. Sho was setting in her room alone when she made this wise resolution and took the surest way for keeping it, by going down into the parlor where he was sitting at the piano, playing and singing. She stole in so silently that he did notice her, and sitting down iu a low rocking chair beside the centre-table, leaned her head upon her hand and lis tened. .But while her ear drank in the plaintive tones of his exquisite voice, her eyes were bent upon the form she soon would see no more, upon the handsome haughty head with a splendid light, tlie light and symmetrical hand that laid upon the key. One .sad thought followed an other, and forgetting lor a moment that she was not alone, she sighed audibly. He started at the sound, and turned away from the instrumt nt. Marion blush ed, and a fair.t colo. over his white lorehcad. "YouIMi.vi Clifr," said ho "why should you, of all others be sad ? 44 It was the sound that made mo so." She rose, and standing by the window, pulled a Michigan rose from the vines that .shaded it, twirled it for a moment iu her hand and stood irresolute whether to go or stay, a sudden thought struck her. without another look toward him she was ' uneasiness with which they had watch gone. And the next morning while she cd the process of demolishing the renn- sipped her coffee, the petted belle announ ced her early departure for the city home. It was tlie last morning of her stay, and she equipped lor traveling, was seated at the piano when Clinton cutered to sum mon her to the breakfast table. 44 .Miss Cliir," said he coldly, " I may not see you at breakfast, I have already taken that meal, and am about to leave on a hunting expedition. So I will say good bye now." 44 Good bye, Mr. Clinton," she an swered calmly, " 1 trust you will have a pleasant day." He took the steady hand a ho ollered in one hot and trembling. 44 And is that all, Marion Miss Cliff." 4 What moro can with a quiet smile. say, s no asked 44 Nothing! Nothing! Good bye Mar ion and may God bless you." She sprang back into the parlor, flung herself into a chair by the table leaned her folded arm and wept sillently and bitterly. Collie one sprang through the window from the piazza and knelt beside her; a strong arm stole around her waist and a dear voice spoke her name. She looked up, and there before her knelt Godfrey. Tears were in his eyes and in his hand he held tho Michigan rose she had cast away the night before. 44 Marion, 1 love you. Do you love mc ? he said eagerly. Hhe laid her hand in his the next mo ment she was drawn closely to his heart and their lips met in a long, long kiss a kiss of youth and level The wager was won, but she had won it in losing her heart. FIIOM WASHINGTON. THE CONFLICT 1IKTWKKN DOH 1 LAS. FITCH AND Washing i on, Den. 22, 1857. In the Senate this morning, Mr. Stu art of Michigan, who had the floor, gave way to 31 r. Fitch, of Indiana, who begun with au allusion to Mr. Douglas's remark yesterday, that certain men, among them J 'resident uehanan, were trying to read him out of the democratic party. Mr. DovsIvl who was writing a letter, dprra re rnfJtfy h:Ua:i72 ts-That v-f) going on, here suddenly turned upon the gentleman from Indiana and inquired, 44 Did 1 include the President of the Uni 44 ted States in that attempt to read mc 44 out of the party? Did I expressly ex 44 eept him ?" Mr. Fitch absented and went on to criticise the argument of the Scn?tor from Illinois. He soon diverged, however, into menaces to th'.so who were striving to break down the democratic party, that great conservative organization on whose preservation depended the pre'rvation of the Union. He held up in Orrnrtm for the contemplation of Mr. Douglas the political fate of Aaron 1urr and Martin Van Uuren, both of whom had traitor ously attempted to destroy the Democracy and had thus brought ruin on them selves. lie repeated the charge against 31 r. Douglas that in conjunction with 31 r. Toombs he had prepared a promissory act for framing a Constitution for Kansas without any provision for submitting it to the people. Mr. Fitch said, however, that lie attached little importance to thee charges of inconsidttucy ; very few of th. Senators p res nit could boast a perhctly consistent record, and it wa of little con sequence in this discussion what had In en the previous sentiments or declarations of the Senator from lllitioi?. Mr. Fitch continued in nn elaborate attack upon uhat he termed the Topeka faction, which he described as a rebellion lawless set of men, and centrr-ted them with the loval, law-abiding citizens who had formed tin Locompten ( orstitution. He admitted, in this connection, that the Lccompton Constitution contained a clause prohibiting its amendment, prior to 1S(1; but that clause, he contended, was of no consequence; it was a dead letter. The people would change their constitution whenever they pleased. His plan was to admit Kansas with whatever Constitution she may pre.-ent herself. The Senate had no right to in quire how many votes were given for the delegates to the Convention who framed tho Constitution. Nor had it any rijht to inquire i:it:) the number of votes that wore cast at tlie ratification (lection yes tcrdv. All tint could be required was that the Constitution wa.s f.rmed by n legal body. The Lccompton Con.-tituti jn was such a body, and that was enough. He would have preferred that the whole Constitution should have been sub mitted to the people. Ihit the Conven tion thought otherwise ami their de cision of the matter was final with him. Mr. Fitch spoke without notes and with much more force and vivacity than either Senator lliglcr or (1 recti. He commanded the attention of the Senate and as ho proceeded with his maligant personal innuendoes airr.inst Mr. Douglas tho countenances ators lighted up marked centnet of the Southern Sen- with a satisfaction in with tb jrloom and sylvnnia, Senator iu the debate of yes- tert a. During the latter part of Mr. Fitch'' sp(Cjh tho Little (jimt had lain per fectly motionless iu his chair with hi back to the orator who was so bitterly as sailing him. As the speech went on his interest in it was manifest only by the angry knitting of his br.v.s an..1 the in creased glowing of his deep-set. rye.t. When Mr. Fitch sat down aud Douglas slowly rose to his feet thore was a hushed murmur through the crowded hall that indicated how deep was the interest and I the expectation of the audience. He made a magnifieicut rejoinder compact forcible and ingenious and delivered with a proud, tierce energy of gesture and a sonorous ringing of his fine voice that made it one of the most impressive dis plays of oratory 1 have ever witnessed. The mere sight of him was au imposing picture of animal and intellectual strength and power as he walked slowly to and fro across the Senate floor, tossing his shaggy locks as an angry lion tosses his mane, jerking out his sharp, sinewy sentence and turning now and then upon the gentleman from Indiana, and vehemently demanding, with a stump of his foot, what he meant by comparing him to Aaron Ihirr Or by accusing id m of ambitious schemes to break down the democratic party ? Or by his vague innuendoes and dark insinuations? Or by imputing to him as a crime his dissent from the President on some particulars relating to Kansas? 44 What if 1 do dif fer from the President ? 1 have not bo come the servile tool of any President to receive and obey his instructions against my own judgment and sense of right." He spoke with bitter contomj t of the Lecotnpton faction in Kansas, taul declar ed that but for the protection of the Uni ted States troops, the people would not let him stay a day in the Territory. A train he warned the Senate that if this attempt to force a Constitution uj.cn Kan sas against the wishes of nine tenths of the people were persisted in, civil war would be the result. In conclusion referring to these r( -cited attacks upon him, he said he isk. . mr mercy, he should shrink from no contro versy. If the design were to bring him out and exhibit his strength by repeated assaults lie would ioilTh'at'Tle'sign'b''ina-"'' tiii-f ?u in 'Jv tn thorn until m y r Tiro nt number were collected to merit his notice, when he would ' give a raking fire at the whole group.
