It might appear with advan tage as an elegant fiction in an annual, or in any other niei'.tra.i through which the "course of true love" does occasionally "run .month. Civet, in the Netherlands, is in a man ner joined to Charleroi, excepting that it is outside the fortifications. It stands up on the Meuse in a wonderfully pleasant situation j but after residing there for three months in Ardennes during the win ter, the first appearance of anything like cultivated country in the opening of spring, and on a fine day ns this was, might seem somewhat beyond its real deserts. 'Char leroi I Charleroi! '. I repeated to myself several limes, when having inquired the name of the town on the other side of the bridge, I was answered "Charleroi." , I ell that it was associated in my mind with some past incidents; but what they were, I was at first unable to recall. Suddenly it broke upon me, and I was sitting with Durand and Elize, in the saloon at Avig- noun, i'oor fellow 1 said 1, aloud ; for somehow or other I was firmly persuaded he had been killed at Waterloo, nut be fore preceding, let me go back several years, to give the reader information that may increase his interest in what 1 am a- bout to relate. I was sitting upon one of the hikh grounds on the mad between Aix and A- ugnon, looking down upon the latter city, and buried in a deep revery, not connect ed w lib 1 elrareh and Laura, but in which the history of the Popes was passing be fore me, when a step close behind broke the lengthened link of images, that like wave on wave had floated on the sea of fancy.- ; It w as a French officer wh, with many apologies, honed he had not disturb' ed the revery of Munsieur. The inter ruption was rather in ducord with the tone ot my mind ; but through the tinsel of trench munner 1 Ihouphl 1 could uiscov er something beyond glitter; &. it has e- ver been my rule in foreign travel, to en courage rather than repel the advance of traiigert. I accordingly answered with that courtesy 1 was master of, and we sat down upon the brow of the hill to. get her. The secrets of a Frenchman, es pecially thuse in whose disclosure vanity may glean a little harvest, are seldom ve ry closely prisoned; and I was soon mas ter of hi budget. He was quartered at An, and was thus far on his road to A vignon, to see the sweetest girl in all France, by w hom he was tenderly belov ed, and lone commt tin ange. lie possess. ed, he said, a small independency in the north, near Charleroi, and was to be uni ted to i.lize in a tew weeks. 1, in my turn, told him I was an Englishman, and a traveller pour plaisir, that I had come last from Lyons and intended remaining a week at Avignon nnd in lljf neighborhood, oelure taking the road to riice. We lie scended tu the city together ; and speedi ly luiuid sccoinimxlatiou near the site ol the people's dilapidated palace. My friend pressed me to accompany him to the house of Elize, who he assured me would be charmed to si-e me; but I eicused myself on the score ol latigne, promising, howe ver to pay my respects the next morning, During the few clays that succeeded iny arrival at Avignon, Monsieur DuYand was my constant companion, lie carried me to be introduced to his bride-elect, whom I liund to be very far superior lo thegen erslity of French women I and I wasdai ly indebted to her, and her amiable fami ly, for the greater of the pleusure I found at Avignon. One morning, about a week after our arrival, I was surprised by (he unexpeol ed entrance of Monsieur JJurand, lor supposed him to be at that time some leagues distant with a party to which had been invited, but which I had declir. ed joining, owing to my preparations for setting out on the morrow. I was certain something important had brought Mods, JJurand thouU Irotn hit countenance was quite unable to guest whether he came to communicate good or evil. He had just received a summons to repair in ttsnlly to Aix, to march whh the troops' to which he belonged, and join Uie army destined to oppose the progress of Hapo leon the newt of whose disembarkation at Frejus had reached Air but a few hours before. ., , . , "My union with Elize," said he.

Let me now return to Charleroi. It was a lovely evening, and when I had ta- en some retreshment, I lett my auUerge stroll a little wsy lnlo the country. Chance led me to the banks of the Meuse, and as there could be no pleasant er path than by a river side, I followed that which ed up the stream. W hen 1 bad proceed ed about two miles, at near as I could guess, and w hen just about to retrace my steps, upon a sudden turning, I came in sight of a collage which for beauty I had never teen equalled; it ttood about a hun dred yards from the riyer, with a garden sloping down to the stream. The cottage was cream colored, of one story only, and almost completely covered w iih the jas mine tree. The garden was one blow of early spring flowers: auriculas, polyan thuses, primroses, dofiadils, and many others which my botanical knowledge does not permit me to name. I thought I had ever beheld a spot ot more sweet retire ment, or one that I could more agreeably ive in all my days. I was standing ga zing upon it, thinking how happy its in mates might probably be, and had laid my hand upon the little wicket gate that led up the garden, merely by way of resting my arm, when the door of the cottrge o pened, and a lady and then a gentleman ppeareu. 1 recognized them in a mo ment : it was Durande and his Elize We hear much commonplace talk nbout the insincerity of the French: I wish to God a'l the world had half the sincerity ot me i rencii colonel at l-ivel. it has been my lot often to meet with a kind re ception from strangers, and therefore it is that I think more favorably of mankind than misanthropes would make us believe mankind deserves to be thought of. This colonel had been rising rapidly in the French army, rising to power and riches ; but through the intervention of my conn try, his master had been humbled, the ar my to which he had belonged beaten, and he had to endure the humiliation of seeing an English guard mounted at the palace- gates ol his king; yet if I had been rii rectly instrumental in making his fortune, 1 could not have been received with great er kindness ; but indeed, after I had pass. ed a night under his roof, it seemed tome that he had but little lo regret in the fall of his patron, and he appeared to feel no regret. Living in a beautiful country, in his own cottage, with wealth and seeming competence, blessed with the endearments ot a domestio lile an affectionate wife and two sweet children, could he regret mui ine clang oi arms naq passed away r Glory could indeed no more circle his brows wild the wreath of victory; but peace might be around him. and the inter change of affection and kind offices luialil hallow his name, and light him through all me journey ot lite.

"Very much," aayt I.

We are free to confess that all the mor-1 al "strenth andLcauty" of .Vnsonry, Odd 1 Ieilowsnp, and the ions of lemjiermce - are borrowed from the Bible. It must j also be admitted that in so far as they re-j 11 et the light of the Bible, they aid the, cause ot true religion. Une more trutni muM be admitted, i nese moral insiiiu- lions embrace and reform a portion of our population which cannot be directly reach- j ed by the church. If then, they place a portion of our population in the reach and under the influence of the church which could not otherwise be reformed and saved wiihout a miracle, (and the days ol mira- cles have passed) surely every one must sec that just so far as they oppose and hinder our work, they oppose and hinder the salvation of a portion of our popula- tion. We reason in view of fuels. And facts Bre stubborn things. Let those who oppose and hinder our glorious reform, remember that it is a tearfrl thing lobe found fiphting against God. Let all the churches come to our help in our country s rescue, till our work is complete. Then the existence of our Order will no longer be necessary.

The sun msy warm the grass to life, The dew, the drooping flower, And eyes grow bright and watch the light, Of autumn's opening hour But words that breathe of tenderness, And smiles we know are true, Are warmer than the summer time, And brighter than the dew. It is not much the world can give, With all itt subtle art, And gold and gems are not the thingi To satisfy the heart ; But, oh! if those who cluster round The altar and die hearth, Have gentle words and lovfng smiles, How beautiful is earth. . , . Translated from the French: THE FOUR HENRYS. It was on a gloomy dismal evening, the rain falling in torrents, that an old woman, who passed in the neighborhood for a sor ceress,' and who inhabited a poor cottage in the forest of Saint-Germain, heard tome one knocking at her door ; she opened if, and saw a gentleman who demanded ber hospitality ; she placed his horse in a sta ble, and bade him enter. By the light of a smoky lamp, the taw that he wat a voungman, whose habit bespoke hisqual itv. The old weman lighted a fire and demanded if he desired something to eat A stomach of sixteen years, like a heart of the same age, is very eager and not ve ry choice. The young man accepted her offer. A scrap of cheese and a piece of brown bread were brought from the clos- et. it was all the provision she possess. ed. 1 t "I have nothing more," said she to tin young man;, the tithes, taxes, and excises disable me from offering anything else to travellers; besides, the rustics of llt neighborhood call me sorceress', and de- vole me to the devil, in order to deprive me, without injury to their consciences', of the products of my poor field." "Pardieu!" exclaimed the gentleman f "if I should ever eecome king of France, I would suppress the imposts,-and cause the people to be instructed." "May God help you!" said the old wo- man. At these words the young gentleman approached the table to eat; but at' the tame moment a new knock at tntf door stopped him. The woman opened the door and taw another gentleman pieYoed through with the rain, who demanded hel ter. I his bsing granted him, he entered and tat down. "Is it you, Henry P" said the one. "Yes, Henry ,'' said the oilier. . 1 "Have you nothing else te give us?" demanded the second corner, "Nothing,'' replied she. 1 "la that case," laid he, "let ut thare it." . i. ; i j -The first Henry made grimace ;' but I This thought arose in las mind, though he did not dare to express it; "Let ut ' thare it, for fear he will take it all." - They now teated themselves opposite , one another, and already one wat about to cut the bread wilt) hit dagger, when a . third knock wat heard at the door. 1 he rencontre wat lingular: this was also a young gentleman, and also a Henry. The old woman began to consider them with surprise. The first wished to conceal the bread and cheese t the second replaced (hem upon the table, and placed hit sword by their tide. 1 he third Henry smiled. ' "You do not wish to give me any of your supper," said he; "I oau wait, Tor 1 have a good stomach." i , "The eupper," said the first Henry, "belongs of right to the first occupant." v "The aupper," said the tetfand, "be longs to him who k mow t best how to' de fend H." - : ' . i The third Hlnrr became' rsd'with an eer. and said hatiiTittlj j "remapa it c. ,..i!gs to mm wnoa-nowi best how l luiique'r it." - vi k. i ; The worda were hardly spoken, when ihe first Henry drew hf jWpger, and the other two their twcrxlt.

On the other side, the cottage was devas tated, and the 6ld woman, seated in a cor ner, fixed her dark eyet upon the Tour young nien.
