THE, POOR LAYXCU.
"1 ' had taken my breakfast and was
wailing for my horse, when passing up and
down the pi tut I saw a 'young gil l seated
near ihe tfindott, evidently a visitor!' ' She
whs very pretty, with auburn; imir 'and
blue eyes, and was d tested in white. ' 1
had It-It Richmond, and at that time 1 was
luo much of a boy to be struck by female
beauty. She was so delicate and dainty1
looking, so different from the hale; buxom,
brown girls of ihe woods :and then her
dress! Never was a poor youth so taken
by surprise and suddenly bewitched. , My
heart yearned to know Iter, but how was
1 to accost her? 1 had grown wild In the
woods, and had none ol the habilltudes of
, j uofile Hie. Had she been like r nggj
I I'nsh, or Sally Ionian?" or Ttiy "'of tiie
, . , AtM.7Ml helUa r.f I h Pi.imm
Rjost( I should have approached
ut dread; nay,' had shebeen as lair US
Cjliuli6' daughters, with their looking-glass
lockets, 1 should not have hesitated; but
mat white dress, anu those auburn ringlets,
Hiid blue eyes, and delicate looks, quite
daunted wnile they fascinated me. I
don't know what pat ii into my head, but
I thought all at once 1 would kiss fieri It
would take a long 'acquaintance to arrive
at such a boon, but 1 might seize upon, .it
by sheer robbery. Nobody knew me here.
1 would just step in and snatch a kiss,
mount my horse and ride off. She would
not be the woi ae of it; and that kiss oh!
i should die if 1 did not get it.
"I give no time for the thought to cool,
but entered the house and stepped lightly
into the room. She was seated with her
back to the door, looking out of the win
dow, and did riot heir my approach. 1
tapped her chair, and as she turned and
looked up, I snatched as sweet a kiss . as
ever was stolen; and vanished in a twink
ling. The next moment I was on my
horse, galloping homeward, my-very heart
tingling at what I had done, ''
After a variety of amusing adventures,
Ringwood attempts the study of law, in at
obscure settlement in Kentucky, , where
he delved night and day. Ralph pursues
bis studies, occasionally arguing at a de
bating society, and at length became quite
a genius and favorite among the married
ladies of the village.. .. .
"I called to take lea one evening with
some of those ladies, when, to my surprise,
and somewhat to my confusion,' I louod
her, the identical blue-eyed little beauty
wnom 1 baa so audaciously kissed, i
was formally introduced to her, but nei
ther of us betrayed any signs of previous
acquaintance, except by our blushes And

"The, next morning Court opefted-I

as a mere spectator, not niTing any iaea
where' business was to come from. "In
the course of the morning a man was put
to the bar,-charged '.with passing coun-.

ready for trial. He answered in the neg
ative. 'He 'had been confined in a placet
where there were no law jers, and had not
had 8n opportunity of consulting any. ,He
was told to choose, counsel from among

wherever it was, it chanced that tbo place
was settled by a colony who believed the
Gospel of Christ, and proved their faith
by" works. '' A courier from a neighboring
village informed them- that troops were
advancing ; to take the town They qui
etly answered, "If, they will take it-,- they
must.' Soldiers soon came, riding in,
with colors flying, and fifes piping their
shrill defiance: They looked round for
an enemy, and saw the farmer at his plow,
the (, blacksmith at his anvil, and the
women at , their chums and spinning
wheels. Babies crowed to heaV the mu
sic, and boys ran out to see the pretty
trainers,- with feathers and bright but
tons "the harlequins of the 19th cen
tury,'', ;Ol course none of these were in
a proper position to be shot a. "Where
are your soldiers?" they asked. ".We have
none," was the brief reply. But we
have come to take thef town " "Well,
friends, it lies before vou." "But is there
nobody here to fight?" "No; we are all

with, of course we cannot fight," said he:
"it is ; impossible to' lake such a town as
this. ' So he Ordered the horses' heads to
be turned about, and they carried the hu
man animals out of the village as guilt
less as they entered, and perchance some
what wiser. '

Wont to estimate that as the most terrible

(.he dead which constitutes the source of
our misery in bereavement is a blessing of
untold worth. A cotemporary, referring
to this love beavtifully remarks, "to have
laid strong affection down among the
dead, may be a great sorrow, but it is not
a real misfortune.-! Whatever one A after
goipg may be, there. is a deposit for the

come between us; but through all t times
and misfortunes the dead remain the same
