To tell the truth.''Tom Middleton had for a long time loved Miss Hleaucl re, " ith all thile strength of an ear'llt and consltanl t natullre: but- he was very dillident: he had shrunk from making known his attachmntlt. fe.aring Sally's ridicule, though had hei been notre coiun fident of himself hte mnight have r-ad long ago. a secret that Sa:lly's ies took little pains to coyceal. But Totn never imagined how de sirable a fellow lie was in himself, and know ing that he had no great fortune to hetow, he did not venture to offer his hand to the daughter of S-nator Beauclere, and the r'ignu ing belle of the city. Sally was one of a large family, it is true. and portionless. but her father's position, and her own beaunt made Tom imagine that she -as far reinove., from him. Now he only looked hurt when she thus playfully snueered at his small coin pliment, and turning away to the window did not catch the tender look that stole over Sally's handsome features. "Well, what is the weather F" she a-kld: after a moment, as he still stood gazing ou;t into the night. "It is beautiful moonlight, anil I think I had better go." "Go ! Oh, Toni ! Why this is the l:-t t il: I shall see you for ever so long." * "And will you care '" lie asked, a, h-e aue again to lher side. Sally hnbcltre f "ýoº,,r., I n h ll e. : r;e] Washington.

Tom was a fool where women were con cerned or he would have known what those words in that soft tone meant. As it was, a wild hope did spring up in his heart, but when he looked aga n at that beautiful wo man it died away. "' am not brilliant enough for her," he thougbh: bt he plucked up sutlcient corae tonput out his hand and take one of hers. "You are iery kind, Sally," he said. "'1 shall come dto 'ashington, by-an.-hy, and then I shall know how sincere your words are." Sally's cheek burnt; but at that moment the door opened. Tom dropped her hand as onme of the numerous youngsisters came in and the golden opportunity passed away, for they were not alone together again that even Oa that very same night, nearly a thou sand miles away, two young gentlemen were speaking, of this same young lady. They were tivelers, who had accidentally met on he.d lsteamer on Lake Erie. They were total strangers, and were ignorant of each other's names but had fallen into a chat as they strolled on deck, under the rays of the -ibl .moon. "I never was so far from land before in my life," add the elder of the two, a fine looking man of perhaps thirty-five. "Indeed!" evclaimed his companion, a hand some city-bred looking gentleman. "May I ask where you are from that your sea expe rience has been so limited i" "From the interior of North Carolina." '.Ah !" cried the stranger, and his cold fea tures lit up into sudden interest. "'Then per hapd you know the Beaucleres ?' "Very well, indeed; they are old friends of mine." "And Miss Beauclere, you know her r" "Certainly."

Mr. Trumbull woald have remonstrated, but she was half way across the room before he could interfere. Murray started forward with pleasure as he saw her approaching. "Here is an old friend of mine who thinks he has seen you before," she said, "Mr. Trnm bull, Mr. Murray." The gentlemen shook hands, and Mr. Tr.m bull said: "I think we met on board a boat on Lake Erie last fall." "Yes," replied Murray, with a faint Sush, '"I remember it perfectly." A few more words were exchanged and then Murray walked away. " "Are you going to marry him Miss Sally r' asked Mr. Trumbull. 'No indeed." "Is he rich ?" "Homis said to be very wealthy." "'Then you suppose fortune will be a mat ter of indifference to him 1" . "'But what if his is as mythical as mine?" "You must find that out.)' "No, I do not care to know now," said Sally. 'Let us talk of something else." "Yes, I thought you were going to ask after your old friends.. Have you forgotten all about them in these gaieties r' "Oh, no !" And Sally put query after query about her home friends, until at last Mr. Trumbull said: "But you do not.ask after Tom Mý)dleton, and yet you might for he cares more for yon than all the rest of them put together," 'Oh, that's nonsense !

WEEKLY PAPEn Ias JERUSALE.M.-One of the most distinguishing features of the civ ilization of the western nations is the weekly and daily newspaper. Among the old na tions of the East a paper, when started, is a most thorough novelty. It is just now said that Jerusalem is soon to have a weekly. That city, tLhegh still populous in its ruins, has remained up to thi_ time without this modern proof of lite. g~ nge antici pates this paper thus: "Imngime the columns with accounts of a 'rise in the Jordan,' 'a tornado on Olivet,' a fire in Bethlehem,' 'a man killed by a fall down into the Valley of Jehosaphat.' " TIlE POPE vs. FR~E MASONS.-The Pope has recently been raving in iillinsgate style against the Free Masons. The follow ing is one of the Supreme Pontiff's latest utterances. "Those Frea Masons'are nothing but sects of iniquity, hband together only by complicity in odious orimes. They are full of perverse maneuvers and diabolical arti fices; corrupters of moral., and destroyers of every honor, truthstor justice ; propaga tors of monstrous opiuios ; disseminators of abominable viees and ncheard-of wicked nrss : overthrowers of authority, whether of the Catholic Church or civil-society ; and capable"(such is the astounding conclusion "of driving God him self out of Heaven, if it were possible." GESERAL LEE IN A NEW AIOV EXE.T. The action of General Lee as President of Washington College, Virginia, in taking up the movement for practical and technical education in this country is likely to make as great an impression on our old fogy school and colleges as he did in military tactic's upon our old fogy commanders in the balmy days of the rebellion. lie proposes to place Washingtrni Collee in the front rank o the instruction in a an cs, .en gineeriag' and ch 'r ' its present list of studie ." If be succee doing so the old fashioned institutions here arts of words and chopping logic, with a smattering of the dead languages only ire taught, will soon be left in the lurch by the new system.

The first variety is a charming salutation common among ladies. and occurs generally upon any encounter public or private, and is very violent at times after an absence of--three or four days. There is no particular form to be observed in these off-hand inoculations; it simply be ing required to "fire and fall back." But the sentimental kiss! Oh ye Gods, how shall we describe it ! It occurs at all times and all seasons and seems to be never out ofplace. Othello's farewell kisses, which, tender and heart-broken as they were hav ing no power to bring poor dead Desdeimon back'to life, were the most truly sweet ana touching. And there were the grand, pas sionate kisses of Coriolanus-"long as my exile, sweet as my revenge!' and ýweet I:o meo's dying kiss in the vaults of the &apu lets. Under the head of sentimental may be ranked the young lover's ki- sM., which are rendered with upturned optics. They occur commounly by pale noin-light in grot tos ard shady retreats. OFFiciA t.
