whom she affectionately greeted as
her cousins, Lizzie and Mary Beau

I«caving the three girls to pursue
their «valk into town; and the gentle

be necessary to explain a little.
Ellen Westwood was the only
daughter of a solicitor in Brandon,
whose highest wish was to see Ins child
grow up a sensible, unaffected woman;
sense and amiable simplicity. Though
not strictly handsome, she possessed
a quiet intellectual beauty, which
gained many admirers. One of these
alone seemed tohave niadean impres- (

which Brandon afforded. They were
both remarkably amiable girls, with
plistnnents, ana equal amount ot
good looks. Lizzie, the elder by lour
years-had just completed her twen
ty-second birthday; the gayest, mer
riest creature imaginable.
Among her foes (for what pretty
girl is entirely without foes)? Lizzie
Beaumont was ^teemed an arrant

Lizzie said nothing: she did not like I
to confess that the goutlemanly man
net's and good address of Mr. Parsons we
had taken her by surprise and stillless
did she choose that Ellen should imag
ine that t his circumstance would lesson
her prejudices against those whom she
considered her inferiors. The three
girls soon descended to the drawing
equipped for their walk, where
they found the subject of their conver
sation, anil his guests, waiting for
them. Notwithstanding her usual
hauteur, Lizzie's pride was considera
bly softened by the appearance of
their visitors, and comforting herself
with the reflection that, "after till, no
body in Brandon knew her," she ac
cepted Mr. Parson's arm with a tol
erable good grace.
Among the numerous devices for
making people "acquainted," there is
one so successful as a long walk.
All insight into each other's tas es
and characters is gained, which seldom
f a j| s in setting comparative strangers
upon a friendly footing. By the time
Ellen Westwod and her cousins re
turned from their ramble, Nizzie was
W ouderiug how she could possible have
become such good friends with a
tradesman, and Polly as full of aston
lnent to discover that shehad enjoy
ed a delightful walk with his cousin.
"Ellen," said her cousin Lizzie, after
tlieir visitors had departed, "I am
very anxious to see what your friend
Jolin Richards is like; for, front the
specimen I have had this evening of
Brandon tradesmen.! am not so much
horrified at the idea of owning one for

"Oh, ves. I have no right to be
jealous, because I often think that

of school-boy love, which has grown
up with him, for that deeper affection
which belongs to riper years." t

the little party sat at breakfast
next morning, a loud knocking at the
hall-door cave notice ot a visitor who
soon after 8 entered the parlor without
further announcement.
»Good morning. Mrs. Westwood,
good morning sir," exclaimed a pleas

usual friendly greetings with the .
family. Mr. John Richards was then

appear that a foreign clerk in a whole

young couple whirled off to the in

The next morning's sun shone brill

in Mr. Westwood's hall, to start for
the day's pleasure in Corbie Woods.
Such a confusion of baskets and
hampers, of sanwiches and tarts,
fowls and tongue, fruit and biscuits,
besides a more suspicious-looking
hamper, with black muzzles of sundry
bottles peeping out front the hay.
When these things were disposed of,
came the bustle of arranging the pas
sengers. At last all was satisfactorily
arranged; the hntulsome Frenchman
duly installed next to Lizzie, and
Mr. Wherton enseonscing himself be

A rich man once hired a boy, who
served him honestly and industrious
ly; he was the first to rise in the
morning, the last to go to bed at
night, and never hesitated to perform
even the most disagreeable duties j
which fell to the share of others, but
which they refused to do. His looks
were always cheerful and contented,
and he never was heard to murmur.
THE FLEET.
It was long ago that mV* dream ship sailed
l>ay by dav to that shadowy sea;
And t watched cacti one till my vision
failed
And the shi|is were lost in mystery.
Sometime« a rose-hued and billowy cloud
Shut out my view ere the shin went fur,
Hut often the darkness would seem to
il before she crossed the bar.
They sailed at the sunset, every one;
They sailed away on the ebbing tide.
Sometimes a brave vessel went out alone,
And uguin two sailed forth side by side.
1 left them alone in the bands of Fate;
Prayer! she would make them reality;
And many a time did l Watch and wait
For my fleet to return from the sea.
Then m.v last ship suiled—for my dreams
were done—
Ami 1 grieved that my ships came not
back.
ltut only last night ut the
1 saw a mast o er the wasteless track;
And the twilight mists gave away and made
A pathway lit witli sunset's beam;
Ami a ship sailed in through the twilight
shade,
And brought buck to me a youthful
dream.
