"When the Psalm was cndea, Morgin uttered i
to hearty amen, and there sileneo for a few <
moments. Morgin tHon desired Miss Miller to 1
call Beck (the servant,) she camo, and he told <
her, to prepare a room np stairs for Miss Jano \
to sleep in. ' , y
Beck replied : "That her master had told her
to do so, and that the room was ready." <
Morginsaid: "Then Jenny, my dear cousin, y
go to it, undress and go to bed, and take a good j
nap for you look exhausted."
She replied " I do not feel so, but to please
you, I will go." She then addresed the negro, <
and said: "-Momma do stay with and attend to j
Mai. Morgin while I am np stairs." ' v
Beck said: "Oh Misses, you need'nt tell mo p
uar, flios (jnancs is so good to me, 1 can't do i
nothing but mine 'uin all de time." ii
As aoon as Miss Miller had left the breakfast
table, yo'nngPratobserved, " She is a splendid s
girl?Doctor, there never was such a change of r
opinion as mine hns been, with regard to that y
young lady."
The Doctor asked: " IIow !" c
"Why" said Prat, "when she came here 8
alone, I thought she was a pert, frowitrd, and 3
intrusive piece, perfectly destitute of$Ml/i?dfl- \
esty, to como here a stranger among
men?her apparent auxiety for the Maj.,- I 6
thought all pretcnce." \
"And wha? do you think of her now f" said
the Doctor,. " I
"Think," replied Prat, " why, I think her an I
angel, perfection in woman ?" p
"All, said the Doctor, "youdon't understand
woman's heart, my boy, they will brave any- I
thing for those they love." n
"Love," said Prat, "Doctor do you think
Mies Miller loves the Maj., other than a cousin?" n
" yea," said the Doctor, "I think she loves \<
liim with an all absorbing love, with real wo- d
man's love," tl
" Well," said Prat, "I can't agree with you; a
at least, I hope you are mistaken." lj
"Ah," said the Doctor,-" docs the wind blow '(j
from that quarter?take care my Japies, how h
she geU a hold oil your heart; I tell you her e<
iwvtj iur juurgiu is us visiuie as me noon any
sun. She cen never be yours, that's my opin- r<
ioD, and I 'would advise you to cease thinking ai
of her." fc
Many of the neighbors called to see Morgin \
in the coarse of. the moraing, and they -were all p<
? pleased and astonished, at his almost miracu- v;
lous recovery. Mias Miller did not come down
till Beck called her for dinner ; she had fallen u
asleep as soon as she lay down, for nature was d
exhausted. She had enjoyed a most refreshing el
sleep and looked much better?as Boon aq she o'
Vent into MorginV room, alio saw that tilings t]
were not, as "they, should be, so she set to work t<
' to nut them to rights again. The next day Mrs. e
Wiimotrcamo to see the ?he eat with him 1<
an hour or so, and wherf (?e, was going away
insisted that Morgin should--brine his cousin to i(
her house as soon as he was-able to ride, and p
spend some time withjthera; If^promised to do
so, but he Baid, he intended to rleumo his occu- "n
pation as soon as he felt able. ~}% - }<
Prat communicated hit feelipgs towards Hiss
Miller to MorgiD, and asked KSm to speak a good J
word for him. Morgiu told .liim, that he would t
speak of him as he: thought, -and he added, c
" Jimmjvyou know what 1 think of you, bub I 8
-will not attempt to influence her-?the right to ?
choose their husbands Is woman's jfeculiar privilege,
and. I don't think any one should inter- g
fere, unless the lady was about to wed an un- c

influence to persuade her from this alliance, but 1
never to form one. These match makers I con- c
eider most despicable characters, my cousin is g
a woman, and as a matter of course, she want* a

Miss Miller told him all that had taken place

. as in as much as possible. Horgin's feelings coi

cut through the skin of the palm of his hand, nci

r wished to spare thoir feelings.
r. In the courso of the week, (which ho spent
e in visiting his patrons,) he saw the minister and
If apprised him of what ho would have to do on
is Sunday. He arranged that the minister was
r- to meet tlicm early, before many of the congre e
gation had assembled, and perform tho cereraoc
ny before th? sot-rices of the day. He had also
e procured a plain gold ring. He was a great
a admirer of the use of the ring. lie said that
ib it was a Dcaunim emoiem ol the perpetuity of
o their love; and being always on the fourth
h finger of the Jady's left hand, it reminded the
- parties of their duties and their obligations.?
lie thought that when the contract was sunj.
dered by death, the ring should be broken,
s Oi. Sunday morning, nbout nino o'clock,
Mrs. "'Vilmot and Jane, in Mrs. W.'b carriage,
- and Dr. Wilmot and Morgin, in the latter's
" buggy, set out for the church.
Miss Miller was attired in a plain white mns>,
lin, her liaii* hanging in its natural ringlets over
her neck and shoulders. Sholi-d noornaments
; save a sitrig of orange flowers fastened in her
1 hair. Morgin was pressed as usual. Ho was
not fond of external show.
r On their arrival they found the parson and a
- few friends who had been apprised of the event
They went into the church, Morgin put down
> his fiat, Jane laid-aside her bonnet, they stood
1 before the minister, and were married.
, Morgin was an impulsive being, but as he -was
, in the house of God, he subdued his impulsiveness.
He was satisfied by pressing the fair lit3
tie hand that was clasped in his, and -wliisper
ing in his bride's ear, "We are nowindissolubly
I united ; you are mine forlifel" Morgin was a
little jeered by his friends; some asking him to

himself by enying that he was engaged to drive (
i a lady to Dr." WjJniot's.
During the services of the sanctuary, no one
would have suspected that Morgin and his Jane
were newly married. They were wholly absorbed
in their devotions, to God. After the '
Bcrviccs of the day were over, they returned to j
Dr. Wilmot's, accompanied by a few frionds,
i whom the Doctor and his lady had invited; *
; but not exactly in the order in which they
came. The Doctor and Mrs. Morgin exchanged ,
seats, and Morgin drove his wifo in the buggy. J

The travol is immense already. The South
is pouring her countless thousands of men, wo- i
men, children and money, into the jpreat Empire i
City, New York, to be scattered over that State, )
ana over the Eastern States; and yet there is i
a spirit of discontent among us, approaching <
nearer to unmeaning grumbling than anything <
1 else. I inct with a very intelligent gentleman '
from a State south and west beyond oars, who <

tyrant, who wished that all-Bomb had but one neck,
so that he could sever it at a blow; he

Extraordinary Affair in the Gul?
The Quebec Mercury, of the 27 th ultimo, eays:
As Cnpt- Daniel Gorman, of the ship Jessy,
from Limerick, was on his outward voyage, and
when about forty-five miles south oast of the
Island of Antieosti, during a thick fo&, and surrounded
by field icc, ho heard the report of a
gun. Supposing it to be a signal from another
vessel near at hand, ho caused tho fog bell to
be rung, to avoid a collision. In about twenty
minutes tho fog cleared off, and his ship was
lound to bo cloao to a piccc of ice, on which lay
in view the body of on Indian, extended, and
still bleeding profusely from a wound in the
chest, lie was quite dead, and not far from
him lay the body of another Indian, with a
dead seal alongside of him. The first poor fellow,
it is conjectured, despairing of relief from
certain death by starvation, had just put a poriod
to his existence, not imagining that aid
was really so near. They probably went out
together on the field ice to kill seals, and had
drifted out to sea, when the first dying from
the cold, the other committed suicide to avoid a
more lingering death.
A Sacred Relio of the Olden Time.
The picturesque ruins of the church on James ]
River attract trie eyes and interest the attention
of all travellers. That was the first En- j
glish (Episcopal) church erected in this country. ,
At the late session of tho diocesan convention
of the Protestant Episcopal Church in Virginia,
a resolution was offered, requiring tho conimun- (
ion plate which is reported to have belonged |
to the Colonial Church of Jamestown to be dc- ,
posited in the Theological Seminary near Alex- ,
anuria, lnese interesting memorials consist of
a large silver chalice, inscribed on the side
with the words: "Mixe not holie things with I
profane;" and under the foot, with the words; '
"Ex dono Jncobi Morrison, Armigeri, A. D. <
1601;" a silver patten with the same words in- <
scribed, and a silver alms-plate orbnsin, having '
inscribed on its rim the words. " For the James
City Parish Church." <
The Canvass in our District. <
In one of the Editorial letters to the South- '
srn Patriot, of the 25th ult, it is made to appear
that only four candidates are engaged in j
the present contest for the Legislature in our ,
District, which in justicoto all, we think itour 1
3aty to correct. The Editor Buys: "Stump (
speeches are being made at every muster.? \
Messrs. Sullivan and IIenderson advocate the (
shangc; Irby and Calhoun oppose," leaving i
the impression that no other candidates were
running, or that only those named engaged in ,
tho discussion. We would inform the Patriot
that there are eight candidates in the field for
the House, all of whom have expressed their
opinions.on the Electoral question.?Two, Maj.
w. D. Simpson and Frederick Kanc* have taken
the stump and very ably opposed the
change; while Messrs. Sullivan, Hemjf.twok, j
Qabunoton and Asdeuon have advocated the
measure. Messrs. Irby and Calhoun are the 1
anly candidates for the Senate.?LaurcntvilU '
A Mob of Females in Wisconsin.
On the 23d ultimo, great excitement "was ere- 1
ited at Baraboo, Wisconsin, in consequence of i
i mob of about fifty females proceeding to the t
Wisconsin House, and.seizing and destroying i
ill tho liquors of the establishment. They next <
narched to the saloon of Peter French, but, <
meeting with resistance, they desisted, until a
lumber, of men interfered, some in favor and <
Hhera against the movement. A scene of vi>lent
excitement ensued,. 'which induced the <
iheriff to.read the riot act arid order th?irt tn
