Mrs. llopo received her neic with sach kindnesi, her manner, iiV all their iiupticity. were so refined and la dy like, that Harriet's heart and taste eru equally gratified. Cuming a.-ide at oneo the I i 1 1 1 o tingo ol ill-nature which h had brought with her, ahu re uo I, since sho could not '.veil prevent it, to bo very hupply in this jileastuil retreat. Harriet's ramble nmong tho envi rons of llosvdale, . her gardening, her rides upon tho beautiful black liorsc which her father hud caused lo bo pro cured for her gratification, soon brought back tho roses to her cheek, runes that vied In brilliancy with thoso which grew benido every cottago and gave itn fanciful namo to tho quiet village. Long before midsummer alio felt nnd unnuunecd herself Perfect' well, but still sho had lingered amid tho simplic iliet of her rural retreat, from which no accounts of. the festivities of tbo world of fashion could lure her. It was not until autumn when her father came purposely to fetch her home, thatbho reluctantly accompanied hint to tho tity, parting from Mrs Hope with many tears, and promises of an other visit in tho following summer. I3at neither on the following summer, hid also, it soomed, worked thoir ciloct upon her in Ind. So btill another winter passes, an other, and another, with all tho gaities, thw flirtations and tho episodes of funh ionttblo, no.r.adiesnminer lifo Hind wich cd bftwevn, nnd Harriet romainod un. married. Still beautiful, even more beautiful, moro queenly and giaccful in her ripening woninohnod thun in tho eally days of girlish 'triumph, still reg nant, though tho palm of bcllehood had been ollen d'e puted by frosh debutan lea, still followed by adulution, sho moved on calm, i-old, relf-collectod, in lifloicnt nnd wven I aughiy. Yet there tvero thoo who averred, from their own knowledge, that Harriet llarland pos eisod a warm, loving heart open as to melting charity," full of gentlo, wo inunly prompting, a treasnru- for him who yet should pierco tho suors of her outer lifu. Uut thero wcro few wlio remeinLcroJ or tared to traco back this change, to luto tho commencement of this haugh ty rvticcrctj from tho period of Harriets nojouru ut Jtosedato. Let us go back and seek its cnuso. Mrs. Hope, tho annt rf Harriot Har lan, was tho witlow of tho clergymen who, nflor having ministered to Iho people of Rosodttlo many j car, had died universally regrottod. 'During hi life, his wifo had been Iii worthy and efficient coadjutor in hi parih labor, and sho shared with him tho regard und oespect of Iiis peoplo, which wa . . . . i - i . t .. 1. 1. .i uuo ijotu to ner nsoeiaiiou wmi mm, hhu to her own qualities of mind und heart. Still fresh and youthful in feeling, though the weight of three scoro years had bowed her oneo erect lorin, nnd their snows wero sprinkled upon her oneo lustrious, dark hair, thero w:n no home in Kosedalo wlieru tho young do .ihled moro to gather, than thatt.ver which Mr. Hope presided. Itfllowed therefore, that Harriet Harlan speedily became uenuaintod w Ith nearly all tho vouthful portion of tlio Inhabitant of uoscdale, n well us with tliceMer who lelighled to honor tho widow of their former clergyman, for tho sako of UU beloved memory, as well as for her own v!rtuo. And hero sho met Arthur Hope, the nephew of thu deceased clergyman. Pre-eminent, in theso-ial gathering ol 'lis nutivo village, for hi lino person tnd handsome feature, it was moro es pecially in private that tho b nutle of lis rarely cultivated mind wcro appa rent. And Harriot bud frequent op poittiniticH of studying him in public. nor during n hill'-seo u that necodd it did Hui riet Hurlautt ugaiu visit Itose Islo. That winter she again enteved so ciety, ugaiii reigned supreme, cnthron od its sovereign queen. Again shfl was everywhere followed by admiration and heart-homage. Again sho trrrned with indiiVereneo alike front praUes ol her graco and beauty, and from protes tatiotis of love; but now her manner lisd an b-y scorn, her wonl i haughty :ono and meaning, such as they had not conveyed in tor mcr time. Harriot hail u'utuged in spirit, nnd tho influences which hud brought such bounding health and aotindaut lifo to her vein, tnd in tho ph'UMint privacy of home. I'W to Mr. Hope he Imkol for all that iio would lmvo sought from tho mother lie scare. ly re nu-in bmd -a flection, sym pathy, encouragement, rebuke and prair-e. Her house was his homo, hi noting placo, his sliriuo of tho ulfc lion. Mr. IIopo had early tie touted the rare g-niu of tho Ltil, .ir.d whilo h" lived haddi ected hisstddie. At his death ho secured to him a smttll Income, wilh which, nidel by tho fruits of hts own exertions, ho had gained an excellent education, rind. t tho period of Harri et's Visit, ho had reccotly boon admit ted to tho bar. Arthur Hope's lifo bad been an tin. ceasing struggle. Ahorbod in his tu dies, his hopes and hi ambitions, he hud found little timo for society, and with tho exception of that in which he mingled in Ronedale, with all tho freo doin of hin boyhood, ho had soon none. As for lovo, ho had scarcely thought ol it, and nil its experiences wore j et to ccnio. When ho met Harriet Harlan, she cemed to him like a lwing of another phoro. Her speech, her manners, her movements, her dress, wero all different form, and superior to anything ho had before seen. Graco surround! her D10 lions like the soft, fiint pcrfumo that sho always woro, and ho soemod as un conscious of one as of the other. She was, perhaps, no moro beautiful than other girls thero wcro boautiful girl in Itosodhlo but tho air of fashion, of refinement, of high culture, the perfM tion of her dres, tho elegant arrange ment of her flno hair, tho harmonioiH selection of colors that sho wore, set otT her natural charms to tho utmost, and formed a strango contrast with the beauty unadorned" of thorustio maid en ani'ong whom sho now moved. It would ho a long storj-- one by no moan strange, but, on tho contrary, so common as to win no interest were wo to tell how surprise grow into udmi ration. adc.iration into trembling bom ago, and that, n f nili.tr Intorcourso in flirt aim nlti lifo of Mr. Jlono's Cottage removed tho early awe of tho first days of acquaintanceship, into intense and ardent lovo, that, for days and weeks, with nil Its passionate longing unutter ed, filled nnd pervaded the life of Ar thur Hope. All ambitions aspirations, all other hopes, desiro for knowledge, and fume, and tho world's prui faded before this ono great pyssion that con mined tho ardent soul of thi silent. calm-Boeming man. Mrs. Hope, to whom, hitherto, every emotion of his heart had been patient, scarcely guess ud this vital secret; to Harriet it was a hhrouded mystery, cve'oping her be'ng in warmth and life, and all delicious in fluences, and i arcfully concealed. Accustomed omage and open ad miration, she iely comprohended aught that war I'ossod by tho doli, cats mttoutiod, lowed upon her by Arthur Hope. vrui strongly nt tructed towurt i. His frosh, vital soul pourod fo; houghts that wero strangely In c :t with thu vapid talk that boro uric of conversation In the circles i .-h she had been ac customed to i JI was one at whose feet she t sit und learn wis dom, as he lorn ; catch the.lnaplra tion of love fro r ere. All unconsck this hanghty beau ty fell u victii iho influences that surroumiod he o nover druamod of loving Arthur u p)or man. wiih his foot acar t.i'on thp first round of tho cf success. With life and its ii 'rugles yet bo- foro bim. r 1 ' . yet biic . , , ioi Lvioie iio dared to tell in trc-.uloui tones tho sto ry of his wild hopo atul decp'dovotion! And yot sho hoard this tale, ono that sent the blood bounding through her veins wilh a strange throbbing puls-, lions, ono thut flooded her soul with In tensest joy, and wakened a rosponse that left her no longer ignorant of tho great mystery of woman's naturo her capacity for loving, in cold silence, heard her lover through, until ho pnused in tho burning cluoionce ot his vows, and protestations, and entreaties, to look upon her face and seek his answer there, nnd then, inn hall score of culm, scornful words, refused his love, refused him hope, and darkoned hi life I Thut hour the two partod, and for ten years met no morel Bth kept their socrot, and none, not even those who sat at tho same board, and ininglod in nil their daily lives, knew how thono separate, yet longintr, pasionutelv long ing live had ecn Influenced by the ovents of that hour of supremo hope, und joy, and disuppointmunt. Harriet wm ambition-, nnd In the moment when, In listening to her lover, her own lovo was revealed to her, hi shrank from the humiliation of loving ono so lowly. Tho thought that he thu hello of society, tho sot la! sorendgn ut whose feet had been laid tho homage of tho Wealthy and the irroaf. ahnnld bend her prond neck to the chains of hucIi. a love was indeed humill itlng. she summoned to her nid all tho forces of her haughty nature, und In the few cold word hfe spnlu. exIingnUhcd at oiicHlhu bapolne of two Krrxrt s. And so, while Arthur Hope, nt riving m.in. fully with tho tt-rnhU blow he h id re cxived, at length triumnhed over the external e fleets of hU disappointment, bho biirieif in the depths of her heart all its passionate 'lamentations over it lost beiuty and, freshness, and strove ami struggle.! vainly wilh its desola tin. And tliis was" why she turned so Icily from the Imfnugo of other lover " ear after year pruned on, and still Harriet Harlan remained unmirried. Her splendid maturity nt twenty-sevon showed no signs if ilecay. Haro and eonnluht cuUuro knd increased thohcatt 'f her f'ature. by adding the charm of cvci .varying expression, a great l) a that of her mind. She disduiucd now tho honor ul bolhdiood, withdrew from general society, and moved in th intellectual coteries of her native city. At this poriol she spent n winter in Washington. Jlere who was greatly ad mired, and followed, and here, a else where, sho turned a doaf ear to all the solicitations of love. It so chance I that Arthur IIopo also piiMHi'd that winter at tho seat of gov- eminent. He had turned to the pur suit of fume when disappointed in love, and tho mitrea of hi new devotion hud boon kind beyond hi utmost cx pcotntionH. Hi legal reputation had constantly increased with his years, and ho had early indontified himsolfin politics with tho popular party; not lieeanso it was popular, but bocauao its principles com inendud themselves alike to his judge ment and his heart. Thai constantly winning honor aud the confidence of tho po'ople, he had, on that winter, been elected to rcpresout his district in Congress. Harriet soon learned of his presenre in tho Capitol, long, even beforo he knew that she also was there. 8h used to set in tho gallery and, herself concealed, watch the fu;o ! ha man she still loved, and trnc tho fino lines thru ttmoghnrad cMsled. and tho ex pression that told of sufferings subdued in a Btern and uncompromising strug gle. It he spoke, sho listened within tenso eagerness to catch . each wonl. If he was silent, sho was content to watch him herself tureen. Sometimoa they wer at the samo par ty, but with caiuf! avoidance on the part of tlte gentleman, they novor met. though the names of both .voro on eve ry tongue, nnd oiTers of. introduction wero constantly made. At longth Mr. II p s mvb hi great speech one for which tho public had waited with intense anxiety, none more ho than Harriet Harlan I. Soo was in her usual placo at an earl)', and con cealod behind the friendly shelter of her veil, sho listened to tho mightiest effort of that master-mind. The breathless silenco of absornin interest told of bin triumph as he pro ceoded, tho goldon poriods of his rlo quunco rolled o i, then came withering denunciation rclentlefdy logical, nnd then a brilliant peroration, at the close of which the oratcr sat down amidst a storm of applause, which nil tho efforts of tho speuker could not, for many min Utes, subdue. Arthur IIopo lingered a fow moments perhaps to enjoy bis triumph, then breaking away from tho congratulation of his friend, ho lelt tho hull. Ex hausted by hi long effort, and feeling that rest and quiet would sooth bis ex cited feeling, entered the library which, at that hoar, wai noarly desert. J ed. Only in one of the alcoves sat a lady who. closely veiled, loaned upon a tublo, and was apparently unconscious of bis entrance. Not until ho was passing Ircr did sho change ber position. Then she turned. Ilor cyos met his, she rose hurriedly to her feot, And Arthur Hope and Harri et Harlan had met again. Once more they stood face to face. Harriet had been weeping. Kven now iho blushed deeply, as iho thought that this fact must bo apparent; but sho was always self.posscHied, and ahegave her hand to Arthur IIopo, and ipoko some simple but earnest words of congratulation. He could not reply. His eyes were fixud upou her faco, not so much In ad miratiu.:of her splendid beauty, 'as in the search for something that would re vest her heart. Her hand ho still re t"'n ' r bis, t',ftt triMed strnnridy ;iul u is CI i hiio v, UtttU 4a a t V t rS 1 4 1 did he speak, and thun but one word. Uut that word unsealed the recossos in eilher heart, in which their mutual love and hopes had lain eaptire all . thoso years. 4 Harriot V There was a rolnmo In tho word, and tho deep, questioning tono In which it was uttered. ,Thia time he did not look in vain to road her answer in her eye. They woro sheltered from ull observa tion by the friendly alcove, flo ho drew her unresistingly to his hoart. and, on thoso proud lip. heprosed the eal of his newly-ncknowlodged love. Thoy never parted moro. Harriet remained In Washington all tho winter, shuring and enjoying her lover's tri umphs, while he in tnrn, uh.uod those sho won In the world of society, yet both found their pleasure in each other In tho spring, at the tloso of tho scs sion, they wero married. Arthur's career has still been mark ed with success. At the close of his Congressional term, he recoived a dis tinguished diplomatic appointment. His wifi accompanied him to Europo, and won u much favor as bo at the court to which ho was accredited, her triumphs being social, as his wero di plomatic. Neither has crer repented tho second wooing, nor regretted tho dny which made them ono, And neither, pchaps. ha regretted tho early discipline of their disappointed hopes nnd their long struggle. IJoth havo gained from it strength and power, ut.d together they not only cnjiy the fruitions of their as sured and long-tried love, but of fa mo, and worth, an i tho world s hotnago. Weddlnff Sermons An exchange says, in regard to u 'honey moon" sermon: A clergyman, being much pressed by a lady acquaint ance to preach a sermon on tho firat Sun day after her niarnge, complied, and choo the following panago in the INalms for his text: 'And let thero bo ubundanco of poaco while the moon endureth."' Thut ill do for tho honey moon, but it ii notctpinl to the texts seiet ted by old parson Smith's daughters for their wedding sermon. Th Uov. Mr. Smith was the pastor of tho Morlh Parish in Weymouth, Massathusclts, many years ago. He had two d nighters, M iry and Martha. Two young lawyers took a fancy to them, und paid their respects accordingly. The name ofono of lhoe was John Adsms, and tho other was Cranch, we think it was Richard 0 anch. He courted Mary, and Adams Martha. Mr. Smith and his family lavorod the suit of Cr..nch, und treated him with the utmost rewpect when ho culled. Uut they did not liko Adams, and treat- od him wilh great coolness, not even asking him to eat. Still, they allowed Martha to rccoivo his address1. Mr. Smith made it a point, when any member of his family got married, to prouch a sermon on tho occasion, nnd allowed the married parties to select tho text. Mary was married to Cranch. und the old gentleman said 'come, Ma ry, give me a text, nnd I will preach a sermon on your wedding." She accord ingly o Ice tod this, und ho priuichod from it with great pleasure: 'Mary hath chosen that good part which shall not Ou taken away from her. The old gentleman thought that Mary hud indeed chosen a good part. Thi ig went on in regard to John Adam iuul M--iha for some time, as they had Ueno beforo. Mr. Smith fear ed Martha was throwing horself away on a man who would rover amount to anything. Uut thoy were finally mar ricd, and her father, according to his custom, said to her, "Marth;, givo me a text, and I will preach your wedding sermon." "Yea, fafhor," said sho, 'I havo so lectod the follows: "John came nei ther eating nor drinking, and yet nay ho hath u devil." How the sermon camo off wo nover learned. We think, however, the preacher must have choked a little. Tho result of all showed that Martha had chosen quit us good a part as Ma ry. For, while Cranch became Judgo, Adams becamo President of the United .States, und Martha was. of coarso, wife of ono President 'and mother of an other. . A Good"Tkxt, Uut not or ins Bi ULE. That was a strikingly intelligent pirs'in who called upon a sign-painter to havo a Sunday School procession banner paintod, and suid: "We're goin' to hävo a tearin' timo with our Fourth o' July Saoday School celebration, and our folks want a banner." "Well," naturally enough responded the paint er, "you ought to have one. What will you have painted on it?" "Wal, d'n Icdow; we ort to hov a text o' skripter painted onto it for a motto, hadn't wo?" Yos; that's a vory good idea; what shall it be?" "Wal, I thought this would bo about nsgood as any: Be sure you're r'ght, then go ahead!' " Tho Two Erctlifrt The following beautiful Arabian le gend, Is copied from tho Voice cf Jtcob: The aite occupied by the temple of Soterrron. was formerly a coltlvstod field, possessed In common by ttro brothers.

The two brothers bound op their sheaves, made two equal stacks of them, and left them upon the field. During the night, tho unmarried brother wa struck with an excellent thought.

Upon this he aroso; took from hisstack eeroral sheaves, which bo add ed to those or his brother, and this be d with t mw't r-recytslf he had Llvv.i t.vi.llillUinn , V II uvovil, ill OlUwf thatthis offering miht not be re Jetted. On tho namo night the other brother awoke and said to his wife, "My brother lives atone without a companion, he has none to assist him in bis labor, nor to reward him for his toils, while God hs bestowed on' mo A wife and children; it is not right that we should take from our common field at many sheaves a he, sirco we havo already moro happl ness than he has -do in eat i o hnppine. If you consent, wo shall, by adding se cretly a number of sheaves to his stack, by way cf compensation, and without his knowledge, see the part of his harvest incrcasod. Tho objoct was approved and immediately put in exe cution. In tho morning each of the brothars went into the field, and were much sur prised ut seeing tho stacks itill equal. During several auecesaivo nights the samo contrivance was repeated on each aile; for each kept adding to his broth er's store, and tho stacks always ro- mained tho same. But ono night, both having sentinels to divino into the caufo ot this miracle, they met, each bearing tho sheaves mutually designed for the other. It was elucidated, and thoy rush ed into each other's arms, each grate ful to heaven for having so good a brother. 2h)v, says the legend, tho placo whore so good an idea had simultaneously oc curred to tho two brothers, with s ) much pertinacity, must have been acceptable to God. Men tdessud it, and Israel chose it, there to build tho bouse of the Lord. Lamartine. Anecdote IncreAH of a Totato. Some years ago, a gentleman visiting a farmer in Tolland, Connecticut, took from his pocket a mall potato, which somehow had got in there st home. It was thrown out with a smile, and the farmer taking It in- i.t U'ud ojook n it. a curious, boy of twe!vo,statulng Rt his elbow, oked him what it was. "O," said he, "nothing but a potato, my boy; take and plant it, and yon shall have all. you can raiso from it till you aro of ago." The lad took it, nnd the farmer thought no moro about it at the time Tho boy, however, not despising small potatoes, carefully divided it into as many pieces as ho could find eyes, and put them Into the ground. Tho pro duct was carefully put flsido in the fall i nd planted in the spring, and so on till the fourth year, when, tho yield bo ing good, the actual product was four hundred huthele! The farmer, seeing tho prospect that Ms potato field would, by another year, cover his whole farm, asked to bo released from bis promise. Gcncxc former.
