To her faij cheek, and the bunt lashe o'er
Her beaming eyes, so full of love for mo.
As from her baud I took the procured gift,
And read its fragrant scroll.
Oh. olden tome !
Full many an hour in those hripht. happy day
Have we bent o'er thy tr.i. while her fair curls

ouently savs: "I can not believe that earth
is mat's abiding place. It can't be that our
life is cast up bv the ocean of eternity to
fl at a moment upon its waves and then sink
into notbingnus-! El e, .why is it that the
glorious aspirations, which leap like angels
from the temple cf our heart, are forever
f wandering about unsatisfied? Why is it
Uat the raii.b: w and clouds come over with
I a beauty that is not of earth, and then pass

loveliness? Why is it tbat the stars, who
' hold tbeir fc-'st tjI around the midnight
throne, are set above the grasp of our limit
ed faculties, forever mocktLg us with their
unapproachable glory? And, finally, why
is it that bright forms ol human beauty are
presented to our view, and then taken from
, us, leaving the thousand streams of our af
! ftctiot;s to flow back io Alpine torrents upon
our hearts? We are born for a higher des

THE FRENCH WIDOW.
Last year, during the Exposition, Paris
w,as visited by the same mania for lodging
letting which ravaged London In 185 1, dur
ing the Great Exhibition. From the mid
dle of April, banging tip at the doors of the
houses in the fashionable and central neigh
borhoods of the French capital, might be
seen bills with ' Joliapartemenl menblea louer
presentment;" and, mauv a family, manv a
widower, migrated to some distant outskirt.
giving up their apartraeuts to strangers or
foreigners, it. consideration of receiving some
thousand fronc; while they themselves
nestled down, during the great influx, in
some humble locaiity.-withtn or without the
walls. In letting, there was no distinction
of oatious made: the terms were the same
for one aud all for the native compatriot,
as well as the Millard Anglais; for the Ger
man barou, as well as the Russian boyard,
the Polish count, the dollar laden American;
for everybody, in short, who would pay: that
was the condition.
Madame de Y a young and hand
some widow of Gve-and-twenty, who, on
the first of April of that memorable vear.
had thrown oil' her weeds, resigned herself, j
among the reigning epidemic. O ie morning
she rang for the lodge-keeper of the house
in which she resided in the Chausee d'Aulin,
and ordered him to nail up the universal
bill, "Lodgings to let."
"What running up and down I shall have
of it!" exclaimed, with a piteous shrug, the
si-emingly disconsolateiporler, who inward-
ly rejoiced at the circumstance, for he, also,
hoped to reap agolded harvest irotn the new
2f'imporlre, A t:d re," continued the charm
ing youi g widow; -'let .my. apartment tor
tltrje thousand francs, and you shall have
your commission ol five per cent., if to i ba
chelor or widower; lour per cont., if to a
marrifd 'ouide. without any infantine
incumbrance; and three per cent., if
to a family; and here are five fraucs, to
drink mv healib.
"Alas! alas!" groaned Andre, as be pocket
ed the silver-piece, and promised, in a tone
of melancholy devo'ednesii, to do bis bost.
That evening, the widow, accompanied by
her fennne dechuntbre, u ok up ber quarters in
a small cotiago nrar tut village of IVnteu-
oyaiix Uose- , outside the .Darners (l't,titer,
and cou.isjuous to the pretty l)iis de Meu
dom,. where she rust-rated in the lull enjoy
ment of ber independent widowhood till
the expiration of the term.
Ou ti e 2od of August following Madame
de Y returned to Paris, and drove to
her residence believing that ber apartment,
which had been let by the porter, was va
cated and ready for her.
"Madme," said Andre, "the gontlimaa
has not yet gone "
"What gontleman, Andre?"
"the lodger, ilidame Alort3ienr fles
K a provincial gentleman very hand
some. Yet it is not my fault. For I in
formed him, three days ago, that bis time
was tip, and that be must go; but he said to

"Be it so, Andre; go berore, aDd announce
Madame de Y was received most ;
graciously and polite, by the occupant, who j
thus addressed her:
"You cannot conceive, madame, how
comfortably I find myself in this your pretty
apartm-ot, and bow much I desire to spend
ii it the remaining time 1 have to stay in
your charming capital, and 1 fondly hope
you will have the goodness to allow me so
to do; whatever be your terms, I accept them
To tbis the widow replied, somewhat sur
prised, that she had no terms to propose:
that he wanted ber apartment, and must
have it. B
.ni ffrir Ktill was her sururise !
when she beard
:ieard tbe provincial declare his
determination to keep it, even if -it were
necessary to stand a regular seige Madame
de Y endeavoured, as gently as po.-si-
ble, to make him understand tbe impropri
ety of his conduct; but all to no avail , for
the locataira pleaded his cause with grace,
ehqueuje aud wit. The debate became
warmer and warmer, the gentleman losing,
and the lady gaining no ground; while Andre
slipped away to bis lodge, informing his
belter halt that the siorm is gathering above.
At last,- after mien speechifying on both
bides, the gentleman, breakiug tbe pause of
apparently deep rt flection, spoke again.
Well, madame,' said he, 'there remains
but one way to arrange our little dispute, 60
as to enable 3 011 to resume possession of your
del gbtfal residence, without ousting me.'
What is your meaning, sir?' demanded the
bewildered voung widow, looking still more
charming iu bur amzement.
Mv meaning is this, madame: my name
is Arthur Baron Arthur de B . I be
Ion. to an old and bonaraoie lamily am a
bachelor, and 32 years ot age. My estates
are worth fifty tnousao'd francs a year; but
this I mention merely out of respect to the
laws of business; and despite the originality
and quecmess of my conduct, which, may
r.arhaDS have offended you. 1 am consider
ed a very good natured person; and, upon
tbe whole. 1 Hatter nivseir 1 am a man iuiiy.
capable of making a lady happy. Will you'.
therefore, do the nonor 01 accepuu- uiy
heart, my band, and my fortune?
To this sudden proposal Madame de T -replied
with dignity: ' Your jsst is not in
very good taste, sir, and all I can do is to
laugh at it.
'Serioun. most serions madam. I am in
deed aod 'beg you to believe it.
What, sir! you propose marriage merely
that you. may not have to giro up my apart
ment?' A little upon that account; madame, but
still more because of more overpowering
reasons; for, among the many considerations
I have had the honor of laying before you,
thera is one I dared not mention,! but allow
me cow to confess it I love you.'
At this avowal, Madame da Y blash-
ed to the eyes what .lady young or old,
would not have done so, particularly when
the avowal came from a young, handsome,
and wealthy man? However, she took it
in good part, and laughed outright at her
'You are laughing madame, and how
ever" Your folly provoker my laughter Mon
sieure Biron; I really cannot help it."
Nevertheless, madame, I can assure you
I am fully master of my reason, or at least
of as much of it as remains, subdued as it is
by intense passion.'
'What, sir! .intense passion at the first
'You forget, madame, that I have now
been livij.g three long months in yourapart
ment, and that your portrait, which I now
see is an adorable likeness, is hanging up
there in the next room. It was the first ob
ject which caught my attention on entering, j
and 1 have looked at it and admired it every
day since. Nor was I captivated by the
charms of your beauty alone, for I am well
acquainted with your merit in every way,
your many superior qualities, and your ir
reproachable character. A man however
i so little versed he may be to wornmly af
i fairs, cannot spend three months in a lady's
i apartment without noticing and studying
many things disclosing her habits, her tastes,
j her feelings. I have been an acute, and

There was no bombast, no fanfaronade in
the baron's language; it was the resolve of
a man who had made up his mind, and was
determined to succeed. But the more he
urged his suit, the less he advanced in it;
till at last the widow signified to him, io
due form and unmistakable phraseology,
that he must instantly shift his q'uarters
thus giv:ng him his leave, and intimating to
him, at the same time, that he must nvcr
think of setting loot in her residence again.
'Very well madame I withdraw and will
not return till you invite me to do so;' the
answer to which parting words was a saucv
; smile and a tos of the head, which evident- i
', ly tnwnt. "You have long to wait, Monsieur'
le li iron, before receiving such an invita
tion.' However, at the end of a few days the in
vitation was sent, and baron arrived just as
the widow had completed making herself
more charming than ever.
What have I been apprised of , sir?' said
Madame de Y to him a he eeated him
self in an arm chair right opposite to her.
"During my absence, you brought mv long
pending lawsuit to an amicable arrange
ment.' 'Whv, yea, madame; but you must bo

that your delicacy and susceptibility shall
never have to complain of my proceedings
Your lawsuit is forever quashed." Where
on the baron looked the widow st-adfastly
but respectfully iu tbe face, and gave no .
further explanat'on. j
Madame de Y was somewhat con
fused, but in spite of herself she was con
tinually forced to think of ber extent. In
every room of ber apartment he had left :
some souvenir of his sojourn poetsy, pen- j
cilling, songs, music composed by himself, :
thoughts arid maxims, etc., written in ber
albums ani scrap-books. All these gallant
attentions seemed most charming to
while they piqued her curiosity; and when
that important part of the female constitu
tton is awakened, other sentiments 60on
come forth and blossom.
Now, it happened that the day after the
baron's invited visit, a poor woman, the
mother of a family to whom Madame de
Y was io the habit of giving stated
pecuniary relief, called to thank her for her
last munificent donation, which, she said,
would keep her and hers forever.
You were absent, my too generous bene
factress, but I had the honor of meeting here
with your husband.
'Mv husband! exclaimed the widow.
Ah, madame, what an excellent, what a
kind hearted ge it eman! Ah. how well you
are mated ,for you suit each other admirably.
Yes. nudame. I told him everything, and
how kind, how Providence like you were to
me. He seems to love you much, and how
could that otherwise ber 'uood women:
says vour husband to me, madame, 'your ;
benefactress is absent for tho" time being;
but ere she went, she left this with me for
you: and thereon he put into my bands a
pocket-book containing bank-notes a for
tune, madame. I was loath to accept it at
first, but he would have me take it, although
God knows you .ave already done much
for me and mv-jZ&i fatherless children.
Ah, dear maf&Vliow happy you must be
with such a frhfeband! But 'tis only the just
reward of vour excellent heart aod Christian
virtues. May heaven bless and preserveyou

fearful lest she might betray her sensibilite.
at so noble an action. But another circum
stance soon came to light, and caused the
baron to be invited suddenly and nervously
to call a second time. This circumstance
was as follows: A young coxcomb, Leopold
rje R imagining he had fallaa in love
with Madame de Y because, living in
the house opposite to her?, he had chanced
now and then to see her at her balcony be
fore missing her all on a sudden at her de
parture from apartment. After many days'
anxiety, he determined upon writing her a
bilhtloux, informing her of his love, and
stating that he would call that evening for
an answer. Having written his cote, he
wrapped It up in a small paper parcel, ard
jerked it over the balcony into window. It
happened that the baron bad just finished
the second breakfast he had taken in the
house and was poring over the newspaper
when the parcel dropped into the mem.
He took it up and finding no superscription,
ha opened it an! read th following:
"Chrtnante voisine, for weeks ai d weeks
have I admir.-d you from my Window-seat
opposite. O how superlative happy should
I ba were you to do me the honor of ad
mitting me to your presence, and allowing
me to declare myself, and crave pardon for
my presumption. At eight this evening I
will call, ask for admission, and learn my
fate. Till ten, minutes will glide awav like
years for impatient heart. Farewell till
then, the goddess of mytadoration.
He came, and the door was opened to. him
by baron in person.
Is Mndame de Y at home?'
'She is not at home tor you.'
And pray, by what right do you refuse
"Me thinks that right is very evident.'
And you are here in her apartment?'
'True; but for the time being it is nr'ne.'
The dialogue went rapidly on from cross
words to a challenge; and on the morrow a
; duel took place in one of the coppice-wood
' of the Bois de Bouloneg.
This time, Madame de Y had everv
reason, she thought, for blameiug the baron's
conduct; so another invitation was sent to
him. which he duly attended to.
'Uow N this. Monsieur le Baron?' said the
widow, in tremulous and reproachful accents
'expose your life with such a puppy a
life so useful, so precious! I cat. not but

Short Chapter fcr Young Ladies
There are certain young ladies in the
world who hold peculiar notions as to the
attentions they receive from gontlemen.
They seem to think that if a mao is polite
and agreeable to them if he appears to take
pleasure in their society, and visits them
two nights successively, he is bound to pro
pose marriage. Strange to say, some mam
mas laborunderthe aamedelusion. Ashort
time ago a friend of oura visited a young
lady three or four evenings in succession,
and as he was leaving the house the last
time, the mother called him quietly into the
parler, and asked him what hi intentions
were Our friend promptly responded that
ha had no intentions whatever, and politely
wishing tho lady good-night, left the house
forever. We live in a fast age, and it would
seem that courtship must ba conducted with
the same railroad speed as other things.
Marriage is a serious matter requiring long
and earnest consideration. Two young peo
pie may be every thing that may be wished
tor,-they may be amiatde, affectionate, in
disposition, and yet, because their tastes do
not assimilate, thev will live a very unbappy
life together. How are. these young folks
to find out each othei's temper and disposi
tion, if it is not by time spent in each other's
company befere marriage There can be no
doubt that the numerous unhappy marriages
which are made in the present dy, arise
entirely from the fact that the courtship is
too short. Marriage is not regarded with
sufficient reverence; it is often hurriedly
entered into and speedily repented. Truth
compels us to state that tbis is caused in a
great measure by our young ladies. :' As we
have just stated, tbey appear'to think that
if a man is polite and agreeable to them, he
is in love, and is bound at once to declare
his intentions. fhey forget that in seeking
for a wife, a man ought to 4ook for some
thing more than bright eyes, a brilliant
complexion and white shoulders. These
are all very well in the'r way, butbeautv is
evanescent, and the day will come when
other qualities are found nece.-sary to bind
a household together. There should be
congeniality of mind, temper and disposi
t:on; there must be mu'Uil epepdence an 1
mutual forbearance, all of which can not be
discovered in tha short courtships of the pre

she must despise. The attributes of man
