"How did you come to rnarj-y Mr. Mar- phall. Aunt Nannie?" Mr. Natiuie Marshall wasn't my aunt, Lut I called her so for years for be was the kindest and truest friend I had ever had. iShe sat silent knitting busily and sifTiliiig a little, Lefore she auswered me. It all came of shaLiii a crumb -cloth," said Aunt Nannie. "What! did you trip him up in its fo'.li, an! bring him down ou his knees to you '(" "So, l it tell you. When 1 was lour years old my mother died. I didn't know whether children of that tender aire remem ber their mothers' aJi remembered mine or int ; but when I wad so little that X sat in a high chair at the table, I would watch the chairs tilling up around it with the persist ent hope that my mother would coins to nit by iue ; and I did not relenquiih this hope at'ter I was old enouerh to comprehend death but clung to it, prayinjr Christ to work a miracle, as iu the old iiible times, and let 11. y dear mother appear to u;y longing Never was there a more eSirettonato 01 inniiitiathc chii-i, a;;d my youth was a tiria.y time. iy grandmother, who had charge uft'ie, meant to du her duty by too. a:; J in the usual acceptance of the term ..h lid it. Ittn fed and cbiihc-.!, an 1 phe tajiihi. me as well as her limited means would allow. But she never manifested any alTo tion for me. She was ore of the kind 'f pi ip'.e who think kisses and cares fe luulishness, and though I look back now a'id rcuiciuber proofs of a secret t-eudcrues3. ir ver kissed or caressed me whcti I was a child, 1 irrt-w up starved for love. After I was" fourteen year old I trew to i'ok for it from whence ail girls look for it from a lover. 1 read romances I built air castles yet so well had 1 been trained iu practical ways and habits that no one dreamed of the turn my mind was taking. My fondest dream was of the time when a martial figure, with bold, 1 riht eyes and gay apparel, 'should, Hated ou a milk white charger, appear be fore me as I spun in the porch, or gathered berries iu the tieltffnd folding kno to his heart with tender and assuriu words, leap U;on his steed, aud wirh me in his arms, fly to some uukn iwn country where be w 'ulj make uie queen of his castle. I nev er realized, ugly, in rant child that I was, that this was peculiarly absurd as applied to ini, until one day something occurred which dt troycd my beautiful illusions and made tue wretched. There were always several weeks in the fill, where, it the crops were good, I was ai:uu.,t incessantly employed in gathering kr:ies. which my rau laiother pre-erve I 1 t wur.er's u-v. My only companion in this work was my cousin SceplK-i), a boy two or three years younger than myself. One day when thus employed, we caught a glimpse of a man with regimentals, riding swiftly through the wiiod. "Who can that be?" said Stephen. "Oh !" said I, in delitrht, '"perhaps It i "iy lover knight coming from the wars to fi "1 aii-. Iet us' watch until he comes arou id the bend of the road. If it is he, he will take off his plum.' ! hat and wave it for 'e. Then he will gi'lop up, and lift me to bis horse aul carry uie to his Moated Cas tie." "A nice girl you are for a knight to run oil with, aiu'tyou? A Imii.lome lady-love 'oti d make, with your black face and flying bu:r like a wild Indian's and mouth all t-uhie l up nith berries? Ho, ho ! Wouldn't yuu !o..k grand fying away on a horse, with vjur oi l calico ures living, and your shoes falling off, "cause t'acy are so big '! I'd just L.e to see' you." My cloud laud was destroyed forever, from that moment I know that I was uaiy, uncouth and unattractive, and my-.hcro-ijrernev.caiue; I ceased to expect him. I grew older, and was pule, ijkiin, awk wardly shy. 1 felt my personal defects to a l-iiiiiul degree, and 1 shunned what society wa-i attainable to me. " ben I was eighteen years old I received ? inviution from an aunt who lived iu tio-ton to visit her. I had never seen her. and she knew me - ouly by report. She wished me to come aud speud the winter tti'h her. Jly grandmother was willing that I should go. but we were very poor, and it required a firc:it deal of economy and management to furnish uie with a wardrobe to visit the city W!t'i. At last my wardrobe was completed, and I went to Hoston. The lamily cf my Aunt Caroline consisted if herself, her daughter Julia, and the or phan children of a deceased son. J ulia was just my aEe, and very pretty. It is a very bard thing to say but I houestly think my aunt to whom my personal appearance bad been described, wanted me to associate with Julia as a foil to her beauty, and to reside in the family that 1 might assist in taking wre of the children. At any rate, when I Cirne, the single servant was dismissed. 1 he family lived elegantly, but 1 soon 'lund that it was done by the strictest econ omy. My auut worked hard and managed '- 1 aud no oue outside of the house dream ed that their income was as painfully small aa it was, '-. -, " Julia had a lover. Mr. Marshall was very handsome and mighty fine, and I do not woudor that he appeared very much like a god to me then. He was but recent ly acquainted with J ulia when I went there, but he appeared very much in love with her. I used to help her dress upon the evenings on which he came, aud after she had gone down, looking like an angel, I used to shed a few quiet tears of sorrow and loneliness, as I stood and listened to their happy chat aud gay laughter ringing from the room below. I was very sure that I never could be pretty, and I thought no body would ever love me. One day Mr. Marshall came to dine. Ex tra attention was given to the house aad dinner. My aunt had been very wealthy for a short time when first married, and from her husband's failure she had saved a few things which gave the house an air of means and style some articles of fine table silver and some handsome oil paintings I remember. With my assistance she served the dinner herself, and managed to be richly,, dressed to appear at the table. She looked cool and stately ; but T who had lingered until the la.-t moment iu the kitchen, making gravies and serving up vegetables, was so tired that I could hardly speak. KI never did talk much, though", so it was uot no ticed, apparently. Mr. Marshall conversed of tooks, pictures and music, all of which Julia was acquainted with, and it was agree able to listeu to them. I was sorry when the meal was finished. i'.r. Marshall turned to look at the pic tures ou the wall when he arose, and, after a few moments my aunt commenced clearing the table. The dishes were put through a slide in the cupboard into the kitchen. I helped her to do this. Julia stood looking out of the window. When the table was cleared of its dishes my aunt went out. I sat down and took up my sewing, thinking that my aunt would be back in a ta, uncut to ti-ii.ili clearing the ta ble, and that I should be allowed, during the afternoon, the place cf guo&t. Mr. Marshal! spoke to me and asked me to play backgammon. It was the only game of pleasure that I knew, and I was delighted at the thought. I put down my sewing, and he brought the board and arranged the game. Julia sat in a corner of the sofa with some embroidery. Just as we were ready to play, I looked up and saw that the table still stood spread with its linen cloth, aud the cruinh cloth had not been removed. Julia glanced at it at the satr.c moment aad then turned serenely back to her embroide ery. 1 put dovvu the dice box timidly. "'KxeuMj iiie," said I, "aunt is not com ing La:-k, and the table must be put iu its plaeo." I took of! the cover and carried it into the kitchett, thcu 1 came back, put down the loaves of the old fashioned table, and was '.Z put '.' tip at the side of the room alone, when Mr. Marshall spraug up and did i: for in.:. T hen 1 tt,;:!-; up thj crumb-cloth, carried ?t t'tu &ti ::-.tk it, and put it iu its place ia tiie hail eio-.et, a a J aii the time ha stc.ot and watched in;?, a it' iu surprise. When I was ready la sit. dowti he played very bad!y. liu seemed to be aUscm luiuded. He came to the house two or three times after that, but ucver to spend an evening alone with Julia. Pretty soon ha did not come at all, and Julia usoJ to cry and pout and be so cross that she made the whole family uncomfortable. Ouo day he drove up to the door in a splendid sleigh, for it was winter tiuie, and the sleighing was very good. Julia' was sitting at the dicing room tire. "There," said she, jumping tip, "he's come to take me to drive. Now, i wont go a step unless he aks my pardou for staying away so long !" Her mother showed him into the parlor, and he asked for me. 1 went in wondering. He asked uie to go to ride as cooly as if I had been iu the habit of driving with him all the days of my life, aud there was some thing in his manner that would not let me refuse. 1 went, and he asked me to marry him. I waited three years for him, for he was not setiied in business then then we were married, and 1 have been happy every day of my life since." One day he told me why he had not mar ried J ulia. "I was pleased with her," said he, "but when I saw her let you. a guest, leave your employment with n gentleman, to do her mother's work, while the sat doing nothing but some embroidery, I knew she was indo lent and seitish, and she never looked, pret ty to me after that moment. If it had not been for that crumb-cloth, Nannie, I should probably have married her, ar.d keen as wretched at I am uojv satisfied. " Who is a Gentleman. A gentleman is not merely a person ac quainted with certain forms and etiquette of life, easy and self possessed in society, able to speak and act ud move iu the world without awkwardness, and free from habits which are vulgar and in bad tastes. A gen tleman is something bcyoud this; that which ties at tie root of every Christian virtue. It is tl.e thnni-btfiil desire of doilie in every instance to others as he would that others should do unto him. He is constant ly thinking, not indeed how he may give pleasure, but how he can show reppect to others how he may avoid hurting their feelings. When he is in society, ho scru puously ascertains the position and relations of every one with whom he comes in con tact, that he may give to each his due hon or, his proper position. Ho studies how he may abstain from allusions, which may call up disagreeable or offensive associa tions. A gentleman never alludes to, nor even appears conscious of any person's de fects, bodily deformity, inferiority of tajeut or rank, reputation in the person in whose cr...nf.- ; nqmit TT f nver assumes anv superiority to himself; never boasts, makes a display of his own power, or rank, or ad vantages such asvs implied in ridicule, or sarcasm, or abu ?e as he never indulges in habits or tricks, or inclinations which may be offensive to others. A Mighty Good Husband. During the trial of a ca.e in a citv court, lately, a witness persisted iu testifying to what his wile toli him. i.o this, of course, the at torneys objected, and it was ruled out by the judge. Ho would proceed acain to tell "shust how it vas," when the attorney would sing out, How do you know that'r "My vile tole me," was the answer. This was repeated several times. Presently the iudze. unable to contain himself longer, in terrupted "suppose your wife was to tell von the heavens had fallen, what would you think? ell, 1 u tink dey vas down. The head of a pure old man, like a ruoun tain top.-whitens as it gets uoarer to heaven. THE POWER OF LOVE. A KAFIR LEGEXD. A certain Kafir king married two sisters, but he loved and esteemed one of them so much more than the other, that he made her his chief wife, and she was called the Queen, and treated with great respect. The neglected sister was very angry at this favoritism ; but she strove to hide her jeal ousy under an appearance of loving devo tion, and insisted that no one but herself should take care of the royal children. When the Queen's son was born, he was given into her charge, aud the treacherous woman displayed much affection for the babe ; but it soon sickened and died ; alike fate befell a second and a third child, until the Queen, in great grief, declared that her sister must never again touch any of the royal children. . The King still continued to love his wife so devotedly that he refused to degrade her from her rank, although the accidents which destroyed the successive heirs to his title gave him the right to replace her by another wife, who would secure the succes sion to his family. At length the unfortu nate Queen gave birth to a fourth son ; but she was still the victim of an evil fate, for this child was formed like a toake. About the same time the jealous sister al so gave birth to a child, a strong and hand some boy, and she, therefore, triumphed over the unlortunate Queen; but even the charms of the pretty infant could not win the King's affection from his beloved wife ; and, despite the remonstrances of the head men of his nation, he still maintained her in her chief rauk, and treated her with addi tional honors. Years passed by, and the boy grew lusty and aetive, and was named Unsimba or the Wild Cat, while the child of the Queen was known as Umamba or the Snake. This monster still continued to be the ouly child of the Queen, and with her became the ob ject of the King's fondest eare, having ser vants to attend upon him, anil a house built for his exclusive use ; while Unsimba, like his mother, was treated with distrust, and received no special tokens of his lather's fa vor. At length Unsimba reached manhood, and, as is the custom, two damsels, sisters, and daughters of the King of a distant na tion, came to look at the young men belong ing to the country, with the intention of choociiig husbands from among them. The eldest of the two wandering princesses selec ted Unsimba, aud they were betrothed amid much rejoicing. A great feast was made in honor of the event, and all the young men and womeu wepe invited. The King presided as host, and brought with him his favorite Umam ba. whom he placed beside him in the seat of honor ; but the damsels ran away shriek ing with terror at his appearance, and could only be jiacificd by the repeated assurances of the kinz that the Suake was his own and only son. The feast was followed ly a dance, where according to custom, each damsel was a-k-ed ir, turn to name the youth whom she preferred above ail others. One after an other they proclaimed their choice; but when the younger princess was also asked to select- one of the youths present, ail were amazed and confounded to hear her utter the natue Uuiatuba. The young uten whimpered to each other that the princess, bcinj a stranger, had fir gotten the names of the guests, aud that she had ch sen the Snake by mistake, aud thty secretly warned her of her blunder; but to their amazement the young girl re peated her choice even more firmly than boi'ore. ISven the respect due to the King could not prevent the guests from exhibiting their surprise at her choice ; Kut Unsimba listened with jealous rage, for he deppised his unfortunate brother, and burned with anger at the thought thit the wretched Snake should lie chosen by the princess who more beautiful and graceful than his own betrothed, he had also hoped to wed. When the dance was over, the youngest princess went straightway to the house of Umamba ; and the Queen was there.with her son ; the mother saluted the stranger kindly, and then said to her, "It is true that you have chosen ray son at the dance -but you would not also choose him for your husband?" "And w"hy not?" exclaimed the beautiful damsel ; "If I love him, may I not take him for my husband?" Then she smiled gaily and continued. "Need I fear him ? You do not think that he will eat me up? I have uo dread of your snakeson, for I love him." Then the mother left the house, rejoicing greatly; and Umamba, in a gentle voiee, asked the damsel to close the door, and. spread his sleeping ojat upon the floor. But the young girl merrily objected "Why must I obey you? You ought to wait upon yourself I It is not my duty to serve you ! But the Snake's Voice was full of tender sadness and entreaty as it continued to plead "Nay, but do as I desire you, if you love me. ill you not hem me I Then the nriaeess hastened to do as he re quired, and as she performed the task, the Snake groaned as if in great anguish. The voung girl was moved with compassion, and ;entiy unred upon hitu any service that luicht diminish his pain. "Can I not help you saye you from this misery ? she asked in tonus oi loving sym nathv. "Aye," moaned the Snake, as if in great torment; "hold fait to the pole of the tent, and with the other hand grasp me firmly, so that I may straighten myself, and be treed from this agony. TJravelv the eirl did as she was desired she caught the pole firmly, and then grasp ed the reptile. The smooth skin slipped between her finsers. and she shuddered with dread and horror at the touch ; but her hand clasped fast over the serpent, and she closed her eves in fear while she strug gled to prevent the bnake from escaping from her hold. But in a moment a voice at her siL bade her look up, and she raised her eyes to behold a youth of surpassing beauty standing near her. At his feet lay the empty skin of a serpent for it was Um amba ! The youug prince then told how his broth ers had, one by one, been slain, -and that he alone had escaped a like fate by being dis in the loathsome form of a serpent. which he was compelled to wear until freed from his vile imprisonmnnt by the daring nn wlm liSvpd him. Even now the spell was not wholly broken," for if she still dared to wed him, he had power to reveal him eMf tn hor lono in his true forui. while he must continue to appear as a serpent to all other eyes. Proudly and courageously did rlmitpl nrnmise to wed him, de spite his unhappy fate ; and resuming his serpent form, Umamba hastened with her to his father, who fondly welcomed the beautiful girl as the betrothed of his much loved chili. . - It was now tiine to commence the wed ding march, for it is the custom among the Kafirs for the young girl first to visit the house of the man whom she intends to mar ry ; and it the betrothal is accomplished, the grooui then takes her with much pomp back to her father's honse, where the mar riage ceremonies are completed by a great feast The wedding procession was formed with loud rejoicing, and at its head was Unsim ba with his betrothed ; but the youths jeer ed when Umamba also appeared among them, claiming las ngnt to accompany his beautiful princesstoher father, and demand her as his wife. The Kine anxiously urged the revellers to march slowly in consideration of the in firmities of his unfortunate son : but the gay youths and maidens soon neglected his orders, and Umamba and his betrothed were left far behind. As soon as the pro cession was out of sight, and the prince was ate from observation, he divested himself of his serpeut skin, and the lovers joyously proceeded on tbeir way rejoicing in their mutual affection, until they nearcd the vil lage governed by the father of the princess, when Umamba clothcd himself again iu his horrible shape; and the devoted princess entered her father's presence amid the jeer, disgust, aud dread of all the people of her nation. Bravely did she withstand all th impor tunities of her parents, and firmly did she adhere to her determination to wed the hid eous Snake, although her companions fled with dread and aversion at his approach. The Kiug, her father, unable to alter her -.irnns. lavished honors and welcome uniiu Unsimba. and prepared a great feast to cel ebrate the happy choice of his eldest daugh- er: but the voungest princess insisted up on sharing the honors of her sister, aud took her due place at the feast with her betroth ed at her side. Cries of dension r.nd horror were uttered bv everv toncue, and the damsel was con- deincd for her monstrous choice ; but amid univerfal execration the calmly assumed her station at the dance with the abhorred serpent-form at her side. Then, through . - the clamor ana indignation, a voice power ful, but gentle, was heard, saying. "Lay your hand upon me!" ihe princess recognized the voice and obeyed. She turned and laid her hand gen tly aud lovingly upoti the serpent and iu an nstant a beautiful youth clasped her in his arms, proclaiming to the astounded assem bly, that the charm which had so long bound him was at leiisth broken. J he devoted love of the maiden had freed him, and he would never again be compelled to assume the degraded form of Umamba the Suake.
