On descending into a little pailiihif lite
iiin.on Monday morning, I perceived that
all the household were in the gayest at
tire, and that no one etite'tuiued any se
rinns notion of business. I hod dispatch
ed my solitary breaKfast of hum and egijs,
and other country dainties, und was look
ing out with mixed feelings olfdelight and
envy upon the prospect before me, when
the door of my room was suddenly flung
open, and six rosy-cheeked, ringlelted
young women enteied, tittering very
much, and looking very foolish at each
other, and then at mo.
But to be left alone in a little room with
halt a dozen girls requires some nerve
and I confess I began to feel rather qualm
ish. I am lather bashful, besidesvery
bashful; and theiforo have a mortal re
pugnance to being exhibited gratis, and
so, io put an end to the scene, 1 said in

"Well, sir," she answered "I see you
don't understand our way, but you must
sit in tins chair if you please. And she
indicated a chair which I hail not perceiv
ed, in the back staves of which were en
twined laurel, ivy, nml flowers.
Anxious to conciliate lliem I complied
with (heir request, roHioniiii myself to my
fate with desperate fortitude. Scarcely
had I taken my seat, when they lifted me
up in the chair as high ns they could,
three 01 four times, laughing mostnuira
oeously at my look" of bewildered horror.
I gave rnyselt up for lost an unfortunate
yotiili who had strayed into a rustic wil
ilerness. far from hi home and his friends,
entrapped, ensnared, and forcibly cm tied
awny by six violently beautiful girls; but,
il l was horror struck at this proceeding,
judge what was my consternation when
ihe leader of the assailants, that very Mn
ry who had brought my breakfast hull' an
hour before; leered upon me ns only a
charming wicked wailing woman can leer,
advanced, seized me urdiind the neck,
and impressed upon my hull' pahed lips a
ferocious kiss! This wait the cliih.ix. I
defied destiny from that instant, and re
solved to meet my fate like a martyr. "La,
sir," said Mary, "I declare yml are quite
alarmed; I rrtust linVe another to bring you
to your senses " How soon one gels Used
to kissing. All my terror hud vanished
at the salute of llm third damsel, nml I
repaid the sixth with interest. I got so
fond of the sport thiit I even wanted to
repeat the performance, and wou'd not
have ca'ed to have spent the uliolu day
in such pastime.
"Now, sir," said Mary, ''ynd rllilst know
that this is our 'lioaving day,' to dny the

I rodo in the mail coach to within about
two miles of my friend's house, end walk
ed the remaining distance. My road lay
through narrow lanes ana across nelds,
until I ennie upon a pleasant village.
Hitherto I had not met a soul, but was
walking merrily on, iviiistling or oinging
in love with all tiie world, not omitting
the most important item in the aggregate,
myself. But as I entered tbe straggling
village, I could perceive gowns and muny
colored caps Hilling backward and for
ward, ami 1 had an intuitive conscious
ness of women resolved uu having achiev
ments, lying in ambush behind impervi
ous hedges, which filled me with strange
trepidation. I proceeded however, call
ing up a look of magnificent stand-off or-
I ll-bite you expression, thinking in the
innocence of my bend, to check tod famil
iar advance by an assumed hauteur.
I was misoralny deceived, tor a strong
built young lady, in a state of of the most
barnarods health, cntne forward to meet
me, with an aitful carelessness of manner,
evidently wishing lo persuade me that 1
was iinotlced, and that 8he was going to
the siirinff for a pail of water, but when
she atrived in grappling distance, she
flung hor pail away, clasped me nnieiy
around the waist before I could say alas,
and lifted me of my feet and kissed me
with violence. She offered no apology
for thus assaulting me oii the Queen's
highway.but laughed id my face immode
rately, and called out "Sukey, I've got
him!" Oh. dour! scarcely had she spo
ken, before Sukey, and Bet, and Polly,
and a dozen others vprang into being
from invisible places, anil I was surroun
ded by a laughing, shouting, romping
group of robifsiifous females.
I expostulated ami entreated in Vain; I
was pulled about, lifted up and kissed
without m'ercy, till, making a desperate
rally, 1 burst from their embraces, and
fled along the lane at the top ol my speed,
followed by derisive cheers from" my baf
fled pursuers, and shouts of laughter from
their husbands,- fathers, and brothers,
who had left the Aed Lion to' see' the

emplifying ihe strong attachment of ani
mals to persons who have showed kind
ness Inwards them:
A few days since a personal friend eon
Hooted with this office, had the misforlupe
to lose his son a fine, intelligent, manly
little fellow, not quite three years old; A
King Charles spaniel had been in the
habit of playing with him, receiving food
from his hands, (and bearing biin com
pany in his rambles and spoits. While
the little boy was sick, the dog watched
hy his bedside. After he died, ho missed
him, and wandeied' all over the house,
tl moping anu sua. I no second morning
after bis death, he took his station at the
foot of the stairs, where he had been ac
customed lo meet .him, watched and
wanted for him in vain for a long time,
and at last laid himself down upon the
lowerstair and died. Thus finis are tht
issues tn which the' nature even bf brutes
is often touched. ' !
