ELLEN CLAY VILLI! or, The H rw Schoolmaster. BT E. W. KNOWLEg. CIIAPTKK I. On tlic bend of a pleasant road, not far from a mall but thririn villno in one of the Eastern States, tlicro rtood Homo yarn ago, a small but neat cottage, with green blinds and ivy-covcroJ porch. It stood back frm the road, and was but out from its dust and noiso by a luxuriant bedo of well-trained oranjo ahrub. The haded garden walks wero laid out with unruryin reularityhat Marked tlio whole premises. Winding witli many a graceful turn, thev led the visitor among oval flower Iwifs; artificial ponds and k had od ar Ioph ; erery where the samo neatness and good Ustc prevailed, and told, even to tho most cMsnal observer, that tbo propriotor could wot bo otherwise than educated, intelligent and wealthy. And Jlr.X'layvil!,tli owner of this iateful refidence, josrtefod all theso fiualifuations nay, even more. To theso wcro united bcnevolen-.c, Chris tian Philanthrop, unaffected goodness of heart. Tho stranger and the bouse le-s wanderer ever found a welcome at Iiis d'Hir ; and tho needy were never turned away unsatisfied. Mr. Clayvillo was wealthy. In tho bcighl of inercantüo pronporitj bo bal retired from business, and purchased the neat cottagn near tho small YÜlago. While jirepnring to bettle down in the full enjoyment of lifo, his beloved wife nnd companion vim taken from him ns speedily ns a trembling dew-drop is cx baled before tho morning sun. JlusincHs now bora mo more irksomo than before, and with hU only child, Ellon, lie lived almost in a bermit-liko ricclunion. Xot that bo bad suddenly becomo a n misanthropist, but this recent unlock ed lor bereavement bad partially do Btroyod bis rclisb forsticicty. This melaucholy aoon woro nwa, liowever, aod bo again appeared occa sionly among bis ft Sends and rustic neighbors , chatting freely with them, and even consulting thorn in tho laying out of Iiis grounds around bis cottage. His time was devoted to tbocaro and education of bis daughter, who being un only child, was of eourso petted and humored by an Indulgent parent. Ono altcrnoou Mr. Cluyvillo satin bis library alono.

Many said that Ellen was beautiful : and these pcoplo spoko the truth. Her dark hair hanging in ringlets over her roundod checks, and br still darker ccs pctring from beneath that wreath ol curls, won many a near., and awa kened many thrills of unpokon lovo Then sbo was beautiful: and bad such "winning ways that it was impossible not to lovo her. Truo sho was v little self-willed: bu . bor indulgent father good naturedly let bcr bavo her own way, and nmiicd away her peevishness, till it verged into tears and Icises of kindness. 'Father," said she, as sho entered tho npartmcnt, ''we bavo n new schoolmast cr at tho village school ; ami bo wishes to board with usthat tho longer walks jnay dohimmoroexcrciso than u nearer vesidoneo.

It may bo that be can teach tho languages. If so you can recite to him Instead of mo. Ellen did not answer. 'I hero was something in her father's manner, wbilo speaking, that completely puzzled her. Sho could not solve it, and for tho tirst timo in bor life, sho was unablo to un destand bis meaning by bis words. 'Well. Nelly, we will drop the sub ject, lest somo ono should appear o nd susprisous in a family quarrel. Lot tho first impressions with Air.

Ho had como to perfect arrangements, and to tako up his abodo with them. 'I am clad to sco you again," said Mr. Clayvillo, rising and taking tho ex tended hand of the new comer. Mr. Evans, this is my daughter, EI len," bo continued, turning and intro ducing him to bis child. Ellen welcomed bun with a sweet smile, although a short time before sho had declared that tho would not liko him. In fact, sho bad nearly forgotton that sho had said so ; nnd was half try ing to forget it altogether. Tho new teacher wag between twenty and twenty-tiro years of nge, rather slim, but gracefully proportioned, with deep, earnest eyes, und an intelligent look stamped on his finely formed fea ture. Ho was dressed plainly, though neat ly, and bis hat, though not in tho cx tremo of the latest fashion, was never theless carefully brushed and ptesented a glossy appearance. jJoro than this, thero was a noble ness visiblo in alibis actions ami words that is seldom found berfoath so plain an exterior. It was seen in tho manly bearing, tho closed lips and sparkling eyes. Ellen was completely captivated with Howard Evans' -general appearance, und surprised at bis lolly dignity and tolishcd manners. And at the lea ta ble she could but notice bis perfect case and manifold m-complL-dnnci'is". Thero was such ft higU-sotilcd superiority in us address that her ieclmgs ot hato soon gavo way to those of respect. As Ellen bade her father a parting goodnight, sho said with a quiet smile: "I urn atraul I cannot hato JMr. hvuns be is so superior in mind nnd heart." 31 r. Clayvillo smiled in return and ado her a happy good night. Mean wbilo ns they ascend Iho stairway of reams, wo will cut tho leaves ot the next chapter. CHATTE II II: Nearly ni x months had passed away and Howard Evans was still boarding at tho country seat of Mr. Clayvillo. ho father appeared to ndr.uro the achool master more and moro as the weeks flew by. His society gavo the old gedlloman much pleasure, and tho ong evenings wcro spent in solving lifllcult problem, or translating nn ob euro seuteneo from a foreign language for ttio new teacher was thoroughly versed in classical literaturo or cnga god in tho lighter amusement of play in fhrus. Ho was also fast getting Initialed in to tho good graces of the daughter; for truo refinement will ever find its way into every heart. J'JIIon was belter pleased wiiii iuin ho moro she saw of him, until his ab sence began to croato an apparent void in tho littlo family circle hether It was to follow tho cxamnlo ol her lather in thus loving Howard Evans, or mere- y to cheer bis lonely hours, wo canuot tell: l.crhans neither. Wo only know that sho walked part or tno way to meet mm as no returned at night trom school, nnd then ho al ways happened to navo a nice boquot, or an cvergroen wreath to weave in the plaits of Iter dark hair." a. a a . At such times no always met her with a cordial smile, and talked so pleasantly to her that sho could not licln lovinc him; Indeed, sho would havo considered it a great privilego to havo exchanged tho quiet ot her homo for tho noiso and uustlo of tho school room. And Howard noliced with pleasure that bcr countcnanco vras delighted when ho proposed a ramblo far away down tho sloping lawn, or a quiet stroll through tho garden. Mio would unhes itatingly tako tho proffered arm, and walk besitlo her friend In tho full enjoy ment of tho hour. At tho foot of tho lawn they would listen to tho murmur of tho stream, nnd express n deeper meaninir by si lenco than they could by words. In the arbor thoy would enjoy tho bliss o an interchange of feelings closely nllic to earnest lovo. Howard would gather flowers for her and form them into a book of Mneero lovo, wbilo each bud was a leaf, on which wcro written words ol indclliblo affec lion. Still at such times ho would not act tho part of tho sickly sentimentalist What ho felt ho communicated to her and in return reccivod tho undisguisei stato of her feelings, And they wcro both surprised nt tho harmony ot thought and feeling which existed between them. Jfo talked as simply yet uaearnectly as if he had been her brother, When tho dews begun to trlistoti on tho long blades of trrass, and tho miiwio of tho stream was inaudible, they would seek their pathway homeward in tho lull enjoyment or blissful love. Did not Mr. Clayvillo soo all this ? Ah I this nutrition va rnnnof niiowor j . u i . v J but ho certainly never seemed in bolter spirits, than when witnessing thoovi deneo ot their mutual attachment. He dreamed longer iu his high-backed chair, tho scenes of early days camo up before his view and linked tho present .. '.I .1 A A . A wuu iuo uniorgoucn pusu ii i CHAPTER III. Tho autumn with its golden fruits and golden tints, had come and yellow leaves wero already strewing tho paths with a 3'cllow mantlo. Tho old year was already preparing to die, an 1 was laying down its exit for tho advent of tho new. Tho rich dra pery of green that ha! covered tho for est, slowly fadod beforo tho frost of tho long autumnal nights; tstill tho lovo in tho hearts of Howard and Ellen was warm and bright ns on tho delightful summer evening when their affections wcro mutually interchanged. They had been betrothed for somo time, and wero looking forward to tho first day of the no w year as tho ono which should cele brato their nuptial and usher in the wedding morn. Tho old man would dream now long er than before, with his eves half clos odai d tho same sweet smilo played up on his features. It was during ono of thoso noonday reveries, that bo was roused to consciousness by tho entrance of Howard. Ho started rather abruptly from his chair, but as bis eyes fell upon tbcyoung man ho resumed his easy chair and opened the conversation by a few com mon ptaco remarks. These wcro grad ually uroken off until a silencoof some moments took place, when 1 Toward in a firm, though agitated tono of voice said I como Mr. Clayil!e, to claim your daughter's hand, with the nssu ranco that I havo won her heart, can you, with all tho affection that is felt to ;ui only child, consent to resign her in to my keeping ? I do not otter wealth no o a a as an inducement to win your daugh ter's love; but 1 am frank to confess that I oiler myself alone. Have 1 your consent to claim her ns my bride. The young man awaited a reply. Mr. Clawillo arn.se and left tho room without saving a word. In a moment reappeared with his daughter by his ido. As ho heard tho confession of mutual lov4?, bo gatVbis dearest' treas ure into tko guardianship of her lover. A short time alter tho first day ot the newyear camo round, and brought the apparel of the btidal morn. Aller tho ceremony had been per formed, Howard confessed to bis wife that he had been deceiving her and present to her view a check often thou sand dollars one-half of tho amount of his wealth I He bad feigned pover ty to gain riches of heart. jlr. Clayvillo again clasped tho hand of the young man, but ho did not speak while hlleii looked up through tears ot joy and blessed her kind husband with an overflowing heart. The Great Awakening. The religious revivals of Jonathan 'd wards' timo have been known ever oincc as tho "great awakening." But, bo general is the revival influence, nt tho ucsent time, that tho operations of livino graco iu that early day are clipsed by a more brilliant and more widely-diffused light from heaven. In tho time of Edwards, and to a greater or less extent incolhat timo, revivals of religion have been accompanied with moro or less of boisterous excitement which tended, occasionally, to prevent calm and sensible thinkers from embra cing tho great truths which wero lost to sight and to bearing in tho general hub bub. A (lill'ercnt stato ot things now exists. Tho masses of tho people, ev erywhere, now meet together with u dcsiro to seek in a quiet, earnest man ner that spiritual good which is given reedy to thoso who sincerely ip?U it, This atate of things, universally, nocms not to bo the result, directly, ot preach ing, or tho ordinary efforts of Christi ans, but of ft divlno Influenco which Iocs in thousands of localities acupou- taneouoly, and in main' cases long be foro thoso recognized as tho popIo of God aro prcparod for it. This is an extraordinary timo. .Nothing has ever occurred liko it, with regard to any system or creed save that of tho Chris- nan religion, inner religion nave in thecourso of timo been forced upon in dividuals, communities and nations, by the sword or by intrigire, but never has a creed or a set of doctrines, anything less than divine, received such an impo tus nnd so groat success, as the doc trines of tho christian vollgion aro now receiving.

Some facts have recently, come to light, m . . . . .a a as l hear tho rumor, showing that the old man was not guilty of tho crimo charged upon him. At nny rate, tho lOVcrnor decided upon his pardon; and Saturday afternoon, (iov.
