"Well, you ste, being in my house, I hetlt'n to have my dottts t' the sncerity ) ot'the marriage. I. couldn't - te.ll how such doubts arose-that was - impossible; but I thought they wyere ovetrly fon.d to be by thcnloselves Snlomdy canit nigh thitt--and one Sabbath night I said to myself, is't - no wonderful that never a young lady comes to speir tfor Mrs. Rainm pant, if it were only to get insight into the nature of matrimony 1 In short, before Monday uloriling I was worked into a persuasion that Mrs. Itainpmnt was not a creditabhl lodger. Young, lovely, and lamenting-tor she was often in tears-- discerned there was a doubt : anti what Would havo become o'me and my valuable property in this house, had I no made a testification? . "Let no numn, or woman either, say that I was moved thereunto by an espiscatory curiosity. No! I had a dread upon me; I thought my house might inherit a blemish from that thoughtless and friendless pair, and therefore I was stirred by an obliga tion of duty to look into the young lady's affair. What a discovery was mine! The salt tear rin into my eyes when I think of her story. Oh, the natural perfidiousness of man ! "She told me with what innocence, like two babes in the woods, when he was at her father's school, they had lcved one another. How often, while yet neither knew the meaning of their words, he promised to marry her, and how fondly she had reckon ed on being Mrs. Rampant. It was very pathetical. "Often when he was gonle," said the pooryoung lady, "I have walked into the fields, hav ing no companion but the holy moon, and those witnessing stars which had their light purified by the sim plicity of our fondness calling upon them to bear testimony to the truth of my love. There was a spell upon my heart, which assured me he would come back, and that our happiness would yet be fulfilled. I never thought of any other because I knew my weak heart taught me to believe so, that when he saw the blossom, he would dearly think of me, we had so often in our young years admired sportlessness together. "-iHe carne at last,-and, though no longer the merry madcap boy, who had been both in gladness and in sadness the companion of my sweetest hours, he was the same be ing, but with a richer stock of man hood and cheerftul bearing. Still he was so much the: same, I could not love him less than I had ever done. Alas ! I soon (beau to feel I loved hinm more. Nor did his passion sern ,liminish.ld; and I was plhase- it should ihe so, for who could think there was any guile iu Harry Ranm pant 1 "' 11: had bi,.n, it is true, five yea':urs in the world, and I had beeu alw:tvs at homne; nor could I imag ine \\ hat five years' transmutation in barracks, and the license of young .,hldierisihip could effect on the heart of man. lie stem"ed to me all I de sired; where, was truth, if he were not true"? In that soft,ini that fearful, ill that contiding time, in which I felt mys'lf to be milore in tfult than he was, I could nt doubt the faithful ne-s t' his hotnor. "I thought," said aMrs. Winsomn,re suming her natural tone, "'who I un derstood that it wouldibe a hard thing to hurry the youngi man before the setssion after suchu a disclosure; and I reasoned with Mis~s Fatinia, for L no hln.ner could honoir her with the title of Mrs. Rlanipaut,. telling her that she had bee1n aln overly tfnd cutty, and was very mtuch to ll:uane. •"Ilut ioltwith.t:andlinl.g thliugh' my wurds wre surgic:il knives removing proud hi h, I vet told hInr tor a com tort, that I wounld speak to, (Capt.

Poor thing, -the was by thisi time most discons,,late t) b1ehold! her fair cves were waxing wide-the gra 'ious beauty of heri chleks had he come pale--l-her nmouth had lost the swirl of dimples that made it gayer than smiles, and she rose fromn her chair with heuaviness as it' there was about her a burthen or a shame. "That same night, after she had been long abed, the Captain canme home from one of his parties-she never went to any. 1 sat up on pur pose to meet him. H[e was not ree, but gay, his wits were all about him, - but sparkling. "Captain," said I. after I had let him come in the 1parlor, "I would fain have a discourse with you. Mrs. Rampant as you call, her is very bad " Who dares say so?" cried he. "Captain, Captain!" was my re ply, "dinna ye be contrarie; there.s a fault somewhere, and the sooner it is ownedthe better. She's very ill,I should say." " iHe had been in Scotland, and knew what owing a fault meant in na Christian country ; so of course he began to make an equivocal of a ri diculous kind with me ; but a power was then given to me, and verily I have thought that I was surely for tified and inspired .with the spirit of truth and'seriousness. ." ' Oh Captain,' was my answer to his light-hearted ribaldry, 'ye're due a great debt--ye hae a great sum of sin to answer for. Here wasa young lady, rosy and sweet, blooming upon her native bush, though it may have been thorny. The dear and kind enchautments of auld lang syne were around ner paternal sanctuary and gentle Memory was ready with her golden key to open the tower to you when you returned. "He looked clouded as I said this -his mirth was departed; but for all that I persevered, saying,. " ' And what, Captain, have ye earned by your deceitfulness--a withered flower and a broken heart.. Oh sir, where was fine feeling when ye brought the harlot thoughts of camps and barracks into the defence less and innocent bowers oflove and confidence-where wasbravery,when the silly blandishments of a srmple maiden won you to forget the virtue wherewith remembrance had sancti fied the scenes wherein she fell-and where is your honor, knowing that what was won was given in the faith fulness of youthful constancy, that you refuse still to redeem the pledge of fidelity?' "I spoke like my father in the pulpit; and, by the pith of what I said, so daunted the worldly audaci ty of the Captain, that he sat silent and made no answer. Seeing him thus in a sort of penitential medita tion, I pressed upon him further-I bade him compare what the unfortu nate lady was, with what she might, but for Lim, have been. It was a depicting that made my own heart melt with sorrow, and my eyes to overflow with tears. CONTINUED IN OUR NEXT. Some of their Leaders. The ruffian hordes gathered from the bar-rooms and gutters of the north, and about to be precipitated upon our hovmes and firesides, are very ap propriately officered. No other civil ized country in the world would ad mit into its armies as Generals and Colonels such characters as those we name below. The fact shows to what an extent the North is demoralized, and how little honor, character and decency is prized by the people who have elected a vulgar ignormous as their Chief Magistrate. The follow ing are some of the Northern Captains and there are plenty more like them: General B. F. Butler.-This is the politician who who was detected in a dishonest trick at the Charleston Dcmicratic Convention. When cliargedby young Smith,of California, with falsehood and villany, the pal t(,on turned pale, trembled with fear, and was mute. It is reported that he was disgracefully intoxicated most of the time he commanded at Baltimore. If he has any military knowledge, he must have picked it up while training in t he, Massachusetts militia in former years. The New York papers de nounce him as a humbug and demand his recall. General Daniel E. Sickles.-'Phe chivalrous gentleman who winked at the disgrace of his wife and his own dishonor, until after they became the town talk. A pot-house politician, supported for years by a notorious New York female, and mixedup, more or less, in numerous disruptible trans actions. Miqajor W~illivn M1udligan.-Fam ilarly known as "Billy Mulligan." A noted cut-throat and gambler. Ex pelled from Carolina by the Vigilance Committee. Sentenced eight months ago to the Sing Sing, for attempting to murder a New York Policeman. After serving five months of his time, he was pardoned out. Some other characters in to-moro row's paper.
