The father plucked the chosen flower, And gave it to the child Vith parted lips and sparkling ejes, She seized the gift and smiled." Oh, Pa who made this pretty flower, This little violet blue; Tho gave it such a fragrant smell, And such a lively hue?" change came o'er the father's brow: His eyes grew strangely wild; "cw thoughts within him had been stirr'd Uy that sweet artless child.

Ho had f w .... taken occasion, once or twice, to speak in vc ry slight disparagement of religion, in her presence, for the purpose of testing her esti mate of her profession, and the result had been creditable to her valuation of it. Now, Mrs. Sukey Sample was one of your know ing old ladies, and among other items of in formation, she had managed to pick, was that of George Graham's preference for a woman of piety. How much the circumstance of her having communicated this to Helen, in duced that very sensible person to suppose Mr. Graham's reflections on religion, to be mere past time, and therefore caused her to become its zealous advocate, is a matter about which, I am as yet in a state of complete ig norance. I have thought it possible though, that it might have contributed a moiety to her zeal; for we have it ou good authority, that she was really zealous. Things were going on swimmingly between the two equally smitten loves, when a circum stance occurred, that completely changed the course of their "true love." CHATTER IV.

'And you are determined on putting my young friend, Miss Hampton's piety to the test you say?" ' Yes sir, this day, and within one hour from the present moment too." ' But do you not fear the result? You must bear in mind the disposition to please the other sex, so natural to all young ladies. Miss Hampton's impression will be, that you desire her company, and when there is added to this, her own wishes, it may prove too strong a matter for her to resist." ' Well sir, I admit that in ordinary cases, I should expect the test to decido against me. But I am sufficiently bewitched to believe her an extraordinary woman, and if I am mis taken, the sooner I make the discovery, the better for me." "Well, but my young friend would it not be well enough, to let the young lady's general demeanor, serve as a basis, on which, to build your judgment, without subjecting her to a test, where seven-tenths of our young people f weighed in the balances, would be found sonage. As a faithful chronicler, I would 1 ike exceeding much) to record his thoughts, as he bent bis steps toward the dwelling of Gen. Hampton. But however much Mr. lankins may be possessed of, in the way of :nowledgo, there are a few things' in ; this world, which he does not know. He is i won derful in the guessing line however; and were he to try his hand in that decided; yankee- lsm, he might accidentally mis3 the mark. So ho prefers walking along silently with the eccentric suitor, to the place of his destina tion. ; A e reach the door, and Mr. Gra ham rings. A servant invites him in. Just then, Miss Hclen desccnds the stair-way, bon noted, gloved, &c They meet in the long Hall. Mr. Graham bows, and Miss Hamp ton smiles with an ineffable grace. The col loquy beginneth, and runneth as follows: Mr GraJiam. Good morning Miss Hamp ton! : Miss iramjiton. Am happy to see you this morning Mr. Graham hope your spir its are m harmony with the beauty and the sunshine without ! " Mr. Grcrfuini. Ah my dear Miss Hamp ton, the brighter , orb, shines within doors, in your father's dwelling; for its light has done more toward dispensing the gloom, than the brightness without." George had been cultivated in that odious school of empty complimentings, so popular among the gallants of this generation. Shame on him! Miss Hampton. Indeed Mr. Graham, if you continue your habit of flattery, I shall be at a I033, when to give you credit for serious ness. But walk in you must excuse me, for forcing you to stand so long.' V Mr. Graham. If you please Miss Hamp ton, I will defer my visit, until the afternoon. I see you have donned your walking attire, for some pleasure, of which I desire not to de prive you. Miss Ilamjtton. It is merely a class-meeting engagement, which I can easily dispense with, without any inconvenience whatever." At this junction of the interview, Helen passed her bonnet to her maid, and moved toward the parlor door. Poor maiden, thy dreams will soon vanish; for thou art out of the path of duty, and out of that, thou art JOHN RANDOLPH. Jeorge Graham's arrival in the town where attraction lived, in the person of Helen Tipton, was gazetted from house to house, n inconceivably short time, thanks to the :ping women, and the loafing men of the in which specimens of humanity cv jwn abounds to abundance. Not, by means, that all women arc given os.sip, or all men to loafing. At least a i of every village community, may be I innocent of these social evils.

Any how, the of our hero's safe arrival, together with bject of his visit, was generally known s that one hour, after he had taken lodg at the Bell Tavern, and that too, with the help of a newspaper notice.

Thenit is a duty, the claims of which, arc higher, than mere pleasure, and of course, I will not be accessory to its neg lect. Allow me to postpone my call, until some hour this evening; for I feel that I shall be trespassing."

It was Monday night when he reached the city, and the storm was very high. His. friends found him eon the deck of the steamboat, while J onny was out hunting for a carriage. He was put .into a wretched hack, the glasses all broken, and was driven from hotel to hotel in search of lodgings, and exposed all the time to the pel tings of the storm, He at length drove to the City Hotel, kept by Mr. Edmund Badger. When Mr. Badger came out to meet him, he asked if he could have accom modations. Mr. Badger replied that he was crowded, but he would do the best he could for hint. On hearing this he lifted up. his hands and exclaimed, "Great God ! I thank thee, I shall be among friends and shall be taken care of!" Mr. Randolph was very ill. Dr. Joseph Parish, a Quaker physician, was sent for. As he entered the room, the patient said, "I am acquainted with you, sir, by character; I know you through Dr. Giles. He then told the doctor that he had attended several courses of lectures on anatomy, and describ ed his symptoms with medical accuracy, de- claring that lie must die h ne coma not ais charge the puriform matter. "How long have you been sick, Mr. Ran dolph?" "Don t ask me that question ; 1 have been sick all my life; I have been affected, with my present disease, however, for three years; it was greatly aggravated by my voyage to Russia. That killed me, sir ; this Russian expedition has been a Pultowa, a Beresina to me. The doctor now felt his pulse. "You can form no judgment by my pulse, it is so peculiar. "You have been so long an invalid, Mr Randolph, you must have acquired an accu rate knowledge of the general course of prac tice adapted to your case." "Certainly sir ; at forty a fool or a phy sician, you know. "There are idiosyncrasies," said the doc tor. "in many constitutions: I wish to as certain what is peculiar about you." - "I have been an idiosyneracy all my life All tbe preparations of camphor injure mo as to ether-it-will blow me-up; not so with from you, sir," replied the Doctor, and soon I after proposed to lcnvc him for a short time to attend to . another patient. "You raust not go," was the reply; "you cannot',' you shall not leave me. John, take care thi'.t tho Doctor does not leave the room." John soon locked the"doory"and reported, 'Master, I have locked the door and put the key in my pooket the Doctor can't go how." " . r ' He seemed excited, and said, If you do go you need not return." The Doctor ap pealed to him as to the propriety of, such an order, inasmuch as he was only desirous .of discharging his duty to another patient. His manner instantly changed,' and he said, "I retract that expression." Some time af terwards, turning an expressive look, he said again, "I retract that expression." ' Tho Doctor now said i that he understood tho subject of Ins communication, and pre sumed the Will would explain itself fully. 4Ie replied in his peculiar way, "No, 'you uont understand it; 1. know: you , don t.

' mg The Doctor spoke with entire candor, and replied that it was a matter of surprise that :ie had lasted so long. He now made his preparations to die. He directed John to bring him his father s breast-button: he then directed him to place it in the bosom of his shirt. It was an old-fashioned: larcre-sizcd gold stud. John placed it in 'the button hole of his shirt-bosom but to fix it com pletely, required a hole on the opposite side. "bet a knile, said he, "and cut one.". A napkin was called for, and placed by John, over his breast.

"There is none in the room. sir." "Write it down, then let me see the word !" The doctor picked up one of his cards, "llandolph of Hoanokc." "Shall I write it on this card?" "Yes, nothing more proper." The word remorse was then writ ten in pencil. : He took the card in a hur ried manner, and fastened his eyes on it w ith great intensity. "Write it on the back," he exclaimed. It was so done and handed him again. IIo was extremely agitated.

'In one respect, you are right; yet were I in your place, knowing as I do the worth of Miss Hampton, I would hesitate, before I hazarded so much, upon what I honestly tell you, I believe will prove a failure." ' If she fail, it must be so; for wild as I am, I hope some of these days to be a chris tian. Every thin 2 will dcoend on the wo- man I take, as my wife; and unless I can ob tain some commanding evidence, that her pi ety 13 something more than a nominal con nection with the church, I should be always doubting, and her counsel, however well meant, would be easily, parried by me. The plan I have fallen on, I admit, will, in this day of compromises on the part of religious people, involve a principle of duty. Should she satisfy me that she has it; and after that give me, what I have some hope that I share a place in her affections then I shall be one of the happiest mortals, living; but should she too, like others have done, prefer the company, of a marrying man to that of her God, I shall resign all ptetension to her hand and leave your pleasant town to-morning. I feel that this must sound strangely to your ears, coming as it does, from one so irreli gious as I am; yet it is my way of thinking, and from it, I cannot be dissuaded.", The above conversation was carried on, be tween George Graham, and Miss Hampton's Pastor. . The following explanation, will serve as a key to it. George having learned that she was a member of one of the church di visions, called classes, ascertained the hour of . meeting, and determined on a visit to Mis8 Hampton, at ihat particular . hour, for the purpose of finding but, whether she would neglect a religious duty, and a church usage for, cither politeness or pleasure, by remain ing," to entertain him in her, father's . parlor; or go to her class meeting.' If the former, he was off; if the latter, he was determined to pass from an admirer, to a declared suitor, I do not venture an opinion on the wis dom of his course. It was one he felt it ne cessary tc adopt, and I shall not quarrel with him about it. The business of Mr. Hankins is to state the facts, as they occurred and leav hi3 readers, to form their Own conclusions which he doubts not, will be varied enough t 1, .1 . .1 1 .1. 1. 1 ii. :.. l" 1: x oiamc nice not inougn; lor mai pompnmeuieu lucm, iu uu pccm.ar m.muci, The doctor now introduced the subiect of 1 1 n . 1 n " 1 tAn nnnfnAoc! nrmnnmr' ry' ittx i-fitt' m I . . quccniy woman uciorc tnce is iascinauug a- y ; -y- J".v" calling in some additional witnesses to his bovc most Of her SCX. eryiu ng "lug r au ne, m every 1 mg declarations and SU2jrcstca sending down ,r. tt . t .1 ., P- 1 , 1.

"In August, 1800, she married Joseph Fry, a member of the Society of Friends. and a merchant in extensive business in London, and" she at' once removed to capacious house 4 in St.: Mildred's Court, where-her husband, , as junior partner, re sided. ' '. ".. '- : Before following her to her new dwelling and her altered life, we will linger at Earl- ham Hall, and look upon that group of broth ers and sisters that made it illustrious. Would that some gossiping pen had traced for us its angles and quadrangles; its dining and drawing rooms: its nooks and corners. with the minuteness that Southey has the house of his grandmother. . Ws should have felt more at home in this Earlham family- fthe new constellation,' for which Wilber- torce wanted 'a name that would include al that was to be esteemed, loved, respected coveted There was Joseph John Gurney so well known for his appeals for the oppress ed, for his unwearied philanthropy; and Iv ;hel, the joint owner with Elizabeth of 'the light closet and the little set of tea-things' the beautiful, lively, warm-hearted girl the generous, self-sacrificing woman. There, too, was Louisa, better known as Mrs. Samuel Iloare, who wrote Hints on Education, and some other works, was saidto be the most ta- talented ot the family; and John, remarkable for the beauty of his person, and the fascina tion of hi3 manner, and, when refined by af fliction, for his lovely Christian character; and Priscilla, the youngest, and perhaps the most gifted in the expression of the lovely face. her delicate complexion, the exquisite neat ness and simplicity of her dress, her skill in the use of the pencil and the needle; in all this she was the very woman: and to this she added a very superior mind, and powers of eloquence, which dormant as they would have been in the possession of most women, were in her developed in no ordinary degree, as she spoke in the character of minister among bnends, with a clearness of perception, with a power and pathos, which ranked her, in the estimation 01 competent judges, among the first orators of the day." The Memoirs of Mrs. Fry were written by her two daughters, and fill two octavo vol umes of five hundred pages each; and those who can recognize and. love one of the most angelical characters which Ilea ven has grant ed for an example to the world, should read these records of the earth, life of an angel. We wish we had more room for more of the generalizing summary of the Review, but we clip a passage or two : "Elizabeth Fry was born in the year 1780, of an ancient family iu Norfolk. For four generations her ancestors had been Quakers, and her family was allied to tho Barclays, Ilanburys, and other leading Quaker families in the kingdom. Till she was five years of age, Mr. Gurney, her father, resided at Nor wich, and m the summer at the pretty little village of Bramerton. . Mrs. Fry's career was a unique one, The circumstances by which she was surrounded made her way plain through many obstacles. ller positiou as a Quaker minister gave her a self-reliance, a calm bearing, a habit of speak ing in large assemblies, Which stood her in good stead when kings and queens were her auditors, and when exposed to the gaze and curiosity of mixed multitudes. Her Qua ker costume at once proclaimed her as no? be- on ging to the world s people, or subject to the world's law, aud it prepared the way for ie utterance of plain truths and peculiar m i-l ill 1. views, lopics which would have seemed to require an introduction 'to cars polite,' came naturally from the lips of the fair Quakeress; and her garb, which commanded respect amid rude fishermen and sailor3, no less be came her at the regal board. During the greater part of her life, she had a home open to every claim of hospitality, and ample means for her abundant charities. When these became more, extensive, and her own resources more limited, tho purses of her brothers and cousins were placed at her dis posal. Getting an Invitation It was observed that a certain rich niaii never invited any one to dine with bim. "1 lUay a wager," said a wag, "I g.-t an in vitation from bim." The wager being ac cepted, he goes the next day to the rich man's house about the tunc be was to dine, and tell. the servant that he mustrqeak with his mas ter immediately, for he could save him a thousand pounds. "hir, said the servant to bis master, "here is a man in a great hurry, who savs he can save you a thousand pounds." Uttt came the master. "What is that, sir? Can you save me a thousand pounds?" " 1 es, sir, I can; but I see you are at din ner; I will go myself and dine, and call a gam." - , . "Oh pray, sir, come in and take dinner with me." "I shall be troublesome." "Not at all.".. .. . The invitation wa.s accepted. As soon as dinner was over, and the family retired, the conversation was resumed. "Well, sir," said the man of the house, "now to your business. Pray, let mo know how I am to save a thousand pounds." "Win-, sir," said the other, "I he;:r that you have a daughter to dispose of in mar riage. i4I have, sir." "And that you intend to portion her with ten thousand pounds." "1 do, sir." "Why then, sir, let me have her, and I will take her at nine thousand." The master of the house rose in a passion and kicked him out of doors. Present to Jenny Lind.

Those whq like glimpses of royalty wil follow with interest the dignified Quakeress into the crimson and gold drawing-room of the Tuileries, where she and the interesting Duchess of Orleans, then in her early widow hood, sat with bibles in their hands, conver sing on affliction and its supports and conso lations. Again she was seated at dinner, and on another occasion, at a handsome lun cheon, 'with the King and Queen of Den mark, in their beautiful country palace, con versing freely with her royal friends on the state of their prisons, and of the persecuted Baptists, and pleading with them for prison reform' and religious toleration.

At the recent session of the Legislature a ill was pending to enlarge the Erie canal ; the democrats opposed it: but tin bi'd was about to pass despite their opposition, wb. n three of the democratic senators resigned! caving the Senate without a ijuonmi and putting a stop to all business and bnnsrmg the session to an abrupt close. The appro priation bills for . the support of the I?t:itc (jrovcrnmeut had not been passed at the tune. oth parties appeal to tho people, the arbi ters in all such cases. The Governor has or- ered elections to fill the vacancies created by these resignations, and called an extra session of the Legislature. South. AJc. Micuoscopic view of an Oyster Shell. f examined by the microscope, the extent of an oyster shell will be found a targe con tinent, as it may be calle8, millions of mi nute mscct3 that wander in the largest liber ty over its surface. Each of these insects is ue owner of a house or cavern, winch it forms by burrowing in the solid shell. Besides these minute members of the animal king dom, the vegetable tribes are represented by a luxurious growth of plants springing up v ver the entire shell. These are of every va riety of form, and color, and consists of tree.-, shrubs, and flowers of the most beautiful de scription. In order to examine them proper- y, the shell should be placed in a jrlass t clear water. A Venerable Coat ! A friend informs us that he yesterday saw a blue uniform coat which formerly belonged to Gen. Henry Lee, of the Revolution; aud which, no doubt, had been worn by that accomplished officer in many a hard-fought battle. It is the proper ty of ' Dick Nugent," a slave belonging to Mrs. Julia Tcrrett, of rairfax, whose fat her, Col. Laldwm Dade, more than forty years ago, purchased Dick of Gen. Lee. The c at, until a year ago, was in a fine state of preser vation; but uncle Dick, either not thinking the rich facing and trimmings suitable t bo worn by one of his advanced age, or anxious to gratify some of his grandchildren, stripped the coat of its epaulettes and facings.
