UY p.. liKtl'SES.
At shvkntekn vkvus hp .v?r., I was
more of a man than I have ever been!
since. I wore a long c??l M,d1,ools'
(to which the appurtenance of spurs (
was generally a.Uled) a mustache was '
quite visible on my upper lip, mid a
consciousness ot ripe matuiity nevct ,
loft my mind. 1 was studying for the
legal profession, but at the time ofj
which 1 write, was spending my sum-,
mcr vacation at my father's house in
Though so manly, (almost soldier-1
like as 1 fancied) in my appeurance,1
,ny inner man was by no means so
stern as my oilier man. I loved my
mother with childish tenderness, and
sooner than pain her pious heart,
unmurmuring!)' accompanied her ev
ery Sunday to the village church, to
listen to long sermons of which
could not hear a word, for the tremu- j
lous accents of the very aged minister,
who conducted the services, were so
l'aint as to be inaudible where we sat!
Though incited by love and duty to
subject myself to this weekly penance, j
(well deserved by my weekly sins) my
conscience yet did not prevent mo
from whiting aivay the time by such
amusement as lay at hand-that,
namely, of observing and speculating :
on the countenanccs of my neighbors,
an occasion of which I was exticmely
fond. ,. , . . . i1
The physiognomy which intcresicu
mo more than all others, was that of a.
young girl who sat not far from us.
and wlm was accompanied by an aged
lady, probably her grandmother?the
object ofher over watchful care. J his
girl's face,from firsteliciting my carc
ass admiration, gradually absorbed
my whole attention. It was very beau
tiful, but apart from tljot.lt possessed.^
tlie greatest possible interest for mo..
Noverhad I seen a countenance which i
denoted so much sensihilily tome jj
each omotion of her mind was plainly
written upon it, by its quick, delicate |
changes; nothing was wanted but tlio
key of a corresponding degree of son
nihility in the beholder, t? read her j
tender, innocent soul, like an open ^
book. For hours I gazed and spccu-,
luted on that fair olio's face?I thought j
how sad would be the lot of so sensi
tive a being, should late tiuito her to j
one who would not know how to read j
al ight what was so delicately written
?to whom the varying expression of,
that sweet countenance would he but j
a blank?who should be able to see in j
it only its coarser part?beauty ofj
feature. There was no end to the
reveries into which those swift-coming
blushes led inc.
Sometimes, by chance, the fair ob
ject of my busy tancios would catch
uiy oye, or, without looking at me,
seem to know or feel that 1 was gaz
ing at her, and I wickedly delighted in
noting the blush which deepened on
her check till I withdrew my eyes.
Olio Sunday, 1 happened, in coming
?nt of church, to bo close to my lovo
ly neighbor?immediately behind her
_Lmy hand actually touched lior un
conscious garments. I felt an irresist
ible desire to force hop in some way
to notico mo?lo speak to her to oc
casion ono of those charming blushes
?anything; I know not what. In short
liko an impertinent coxcomb as 1 was,
I stooped forward, and with an insuf
ferable insolcnco, which I blush now
to i emembor, I whispered in her ear,
?? You aro very pretty 1"
Never was I more surprised than
i ml i
uncc was meanwhile considerably al-1
tered. I still wore my moustache, it |
is true, hut toy coat-tails were not, or!
did not seem quite so long, and 1 had
left oir my spurs.
My mother and I were early seated
in our pew, and I impatiently waited
for the arrival of my early enigma. I [
tried to prepare myself' lor disappoint- (
ment. " I have been thinking and j
dreaming about an ideal," (said I to
myself,) "doubtless when the young
lady herself appears all my fine imag- [
inings will vanish; there can he no I
doubt my fancy has been playing:
tricks with me, investing a mere i
country maiden with transcendent
graces and charms." While I was.
reasoning thus with myself the young
lady appeared leading her old rela
tive with tender care.
Worshipping an "ideal," indeed!;
' my most "charming remembrance did j
! not begin to do justice to the beauti- j
| fill reality. A soul full of tenderness ;
and sensibility seemed to have found a
fitting home in a person and face of
perfect loveliness and grace.
.She blushed when, looking round,'
she chanced to see me, mid again the
play of expression on her features
which bad so interested me formerly, ^
The more I studied her face the
more I seemed to see into the pure .
depths of her soul. I could have
staked my life on her noble purity ol ^
thought and deed.
As we returned home, I described ;
my fair neighbor and asked my moth
er who she was.
"Hername," my mother said, "is
Grace Denny ; and she is llie loveliest,
the most ttujieritir young woman I have
ever, in my whole life, met with. It
istoo soon tothink ofsuch tilings yet,
she continued smiling, 'but some years
lieuco it would mnko me happy to see
my dear son married to just such a
" Not quite so fust, mother," said I, j
laughing, argood deal to-hido-a-ljttle-j
boyish embarrassment which I was
most anxious to conceal.
1 found that Grace lunl become a
constant visiter at my mothers, and I j
did not fail to improve the opportuni
ty of becoming better ncquniulcd with
She w*as indued a gifted creature, |
endowed with all " nature's best."? 1
fcShe snug, she danced, slio conversed
with an indescribablo grace peculiar |
to herself. Though generally thought- j
ful and earnest in her demeanor, she j
had- a vein of quiet humor, and her
strokes of playful drollery charmed
all the more from being unexpected, i
But more alluring to me than all her j
gills and accomplishments was the
shrinking sensibility depicted ou every j
feature id' her sweet face. I soonj
found myself deeply?painfully in- j
terested in her. I say /willfully, for
Grace received my assiduous atten
tions with a perfect coolness and un
concern which gave groat uneasiness.
Sometimes 1 thought she remembered
my early impertinence, and was dis
posed to punish it. But there was a
rival, a cousin of Grace's, who al
ways stood in my way, and from whom
Grace received, as a matter of course,
numberless little attentions which I
dated not even otter. I hated this
man; I wasinsufferablyjealous; but
Grace seemed either perfectly uncou
scious, or perfectly indifferent to the
by play of animosity which was ear
lied on between us.
Grace, sweet, noble Grace, with
lior childlike simplicity mid sensitive
woman's heart; who could resist her?
[could not; my whole soul washer's.
In vain had I struggled; in vain had
I called upon my vanity, (of which I
plenty to invoke) to stive mo from
mortification of loving without re

to leave the piano I caught her hand,
and unable longer to repress the one
thought that filled my heart, I exclaim
"Grace; dear Grace, with all my
soul I love you!"
She lifted her large, soft ryes, and
said slowly, while a mischievous smile
stole over her face?

She was gone before 1 had time to

The next day I returned to college,
expecting to complete iny studies in
another year. A year! how long a
time to be absent from the beloved be
ing who was to me, whether slio re
turned my love or not, the nucleus
round which my thoughts would re
volve. I need not say how often her
strange and unsatisfactory answertor
mcntcd me. I perceived in her repe
tition of the same worth, hor remem
brance of the time she had used them
before; and this then was iho just
punishment for my insolence. I tor
tured myself by bringing the wholo
scene again and again to memory;
my passionate declaration of love,
and her provoking reply, 44 I know it."
" The deuce you do," thought 1, some
times. 441 would I had possessed the
wit to have left you a little more un
1 often wondered that I was able to
study at this time, for Grace, beauti
ful grur.rj'nl (Irace, was never absent
from my thoughts; she had becomo
the dream of my life, the object of all
of my love sonnets, which had till now
been scattered on various rival beau
ties. I did study, however, and stud
ied hiird, and at the end of the term
passed examination with high honor;
much to iny dear mother's pride and'
I determined to be wiser when Ij
saw-Grace again; to discover beyond 1
a doubt if I were indeed beloved, bo- J
fore I committed myself as I had;
done by foolish speeches.
In order to satisfy myself on this
point, and perhaps also to gratify a
little pique, when I returnod home 1
did not go immediately to see Grace
as my feelings dictated, but waited till,
at my mother's summons, she spent
an evening with us. Even then, I ho*
my heart was full of tenderness for
her, I affected coolness; I had made
up my mind to play a part, and suilor
as I might, I would act it out. There
was a young lady staying with iny
mother at this time who dearly loved
to llirt. I was quite ready to contrib
ute to her amusement. I devoted
myself to her the whole evening, and
felt the sweetest pain I ever experi
enced when I saw, by Grace's dear,
changing, sensitive face, 'mat she was
deeply pained and wounded.
When this foolery had been carried
to ils height, I perceived Grace sud
denly rise, and step through the open
window out on the piazza. In a few
minutes I followed her; she had re
tired to a little distance from the win
dow, and stood with her head leaning
against the railing, weeping. Steal
ing softly behind her, I passed my arm
around her, and whispered?
"All, dearest Grace?do not deny
it! you love mc."
There was u little pause; then
laughing, half crying, Grace turned
aside her head, and said?
44 Alas ! I know it."
A very general impression prevails
tliHt marking an advertisement in a
newspaper, sent by mail, subjects the
package to postage; but an official let
ter from the Post-office Department
shows that this opinion is erroneous;
it says: "An article or advertisement
in a newspaper may be marked with a
pen or pencil, without subjecting the
sheet to letter postage, if it is done lor
the role purpose of readily attracting
theattentionofthe person to whom the
piper may be sent. Jl the mark should
be so made as to convey any other in
formation, the paper would then be
charged with letter rates."

Parcnlnl Watchfulness Blessed.
Messrs. Editors?1 was forcibly re
minded ol the following Christian expe
rience, from reading the first article in
the Christian Review of January last.
During a revival, a few years ago, a
faithful, praying mother sent for her
daughter, who was at a hoarding school,
to return home, so that she might be
under its influence. The young lady
reluctantly obeyed, but declared she
had no conviction ol sin, though she
supposed she was asinner. Alter a few
days she became a little interested in
the meetings, and concluded she would
attend the inquiry meeting. While
the pastor was praying (or each of the :
inquirers, the convictions ol the young
lady became almost overpowering.? j
She with difficulty arose Irom her knees.\
In deep bitterness ot spirit she asked: j
" Dearsir, do you think the Lord will
forgive ine? 1 see,Oh! I feel that my ;
awful sin is not believing on Jesus. J
fear I am doomed, I am lost!"
"Then you feel convicted I"
She sobbed "Oh yes! Convicted for (
not believing on the Lord Jesus; it is.
an awful sin."
" Did you not know that the Lord
Jesus promised to send the Spirit to
convince the world of sin, because they
believe not on him? Does unbelief in
Christ distress you more than all other |
"It does, sir, it does. Will he, can ^
he forgive me? What can I dot"
'Jesus Christ can forzive yuu;. but
whether he will or not, I dare not say.
He has promised to forgive the penitent; i
those who hate sin, and loathe the very
disposition to sin.'
'I know, sir, I hate sin, but ah, how ;

that it the disposition to reject Christ
and disobey God is not remove^ out ol

We knelt again in prayer; it was an
impressive occasion, and though it took
place years ago, it is almost as fresh in
mv mind now as then. tVe arose, and

'He has said, and he never violates
his word, lichosoever Cometh unto me, I

This article appears, in some points,
to lead to the conclusion that there is a
depravity lack of all sin ; an original
sin, deeper than my present act of a
tree moral agent, and though I believe
all "jin is a transgression of the law,"
and it ii as much out ol the power ol
Omnipotence to create a transgression
ol the law, and make that transgression
mine, as it is for God to be moft or less
than infinite; vet 1 would have those
who differ from me to have the benefit
of the above experience.
