I was m*re of a man than I have ever been since. I wore a long tailed coat and boot?, (to which the ap : purten&nce of rpurs was generally added) a moustache wad quite visible on nay upper lip. and a conseiou.-noss of ripe maturity nrver left my miud. I was studying for the legal profession, but at the time o! which X wnto, was spending my summer vacation at my fa ther h house in the country. Though so manly (almost sol Jier-like, as I fancied) in my appearance, my inner was by no means as stern as my outer man. I loved my mother with childish tenderness, End sooner thun paifl her pious heart, I unmur muring! y accompanied her every Sunday to the^ village church to listen to long sermons of which 1 could not hear a word, for the tremu lous accents of the very aged miui-"ter, who conducted the Fcrvices. were so faint as to be inaudible where I sat. Though incited by I >ve and duty to subject myself to this weekly, (well deserved by my weekly sins) tuy conscience yet did not prevent me from whiiing away the time with *ueh ainu^niente as lay at hand?that, rarnely. of observing aud speculating on tho coun tenances of my neighbors, an occupation <f which I was fond. The physiognomy which intvrr*ted mo more than all others, was that of a young girl who sat not far from us. and who was accompanied by an aged woman, probably her grandmo ther?the object of her ever watchful care. This girl's face, from first eliciting my care less admiration, gradually absorbed my whole attention. it wa? very beautiful, but apart from that, it posse r=.,-d the greatest possible interest for me. Never had I seen a counte nance which denoted so much, sensibility; each emotion of her mind was plainly written up ?n it, by its quick, delicate changes; no thing was wanting but the key of a correc po: dirg degree ? sensibility in the beholder I to read her iunocent soul like an epf n book. For hours I gazed and specu'ated on y< ur.g faco?1 thought how Bid would be the lot of' so en^itivo h being, should fate ur.ito bcr to one who woul l not know how to read aright what was =o dolicatfciy written?to wham tn* varying expression of that sweet countenance would be but a bla^K?who should be able to tee in it only its coarser part?beauty of fea ture. To ere was no end to the reveries into which those swiit coming blushes led me. Sometimes, by chance, the fair object of my bury fancies would catch my eye, or without 'ooiing atrnu, seem to know or teel that I was gazing at her. and I wickedly delighted in noticing the blush which deepened on her cheek till I withdrew my eyes. Ono Sunday, I happened?in coming out of church, to be cl??c to my lovely neighbor? imiavdiately behind her?my haul jjctualiy touched her unconscious garments. I felt an 'rrcbittible desire to force her in so ne way t ? notice mt?to speak to her?to occasion one of those charming blu-hes. anything I know not what. Tn short, like an impertinent cox eeiub, a< I was, X stoo^d forward, and with aa insufferable insolence, ttuich I blush now to remember, I whimpered in her car? '? You are very pretty !" Never wa? I more surprised, than when she caimiy replied? 441 know it!" 1 was absolutely startled. I had expect-.-d r. silent, conscious blush?nr an indignant glaLcc?anything rather than tac cool "I know it." 1 was puzzled, but I had plenty of time to turn the matter in my mind, for in a few days I returned to college. 1 can truly suy it was tho one problem, wi.ich throughout tiirj term, gave me most thought. Another year elapsed ere I returned heme, and again sut in the village church. My per sonal appearance was, meanwhile, somewhat altered. I still wore my moustache, it is true, but my coat-tails were not, or dii not seem quite so long, and I lert off my ?pur3. My mother and I were early 6eated in our per, aud I impatiently awaited the arrival of my lovely enigma i tried to prepare myself l-ii disappointment. ?? i have been thinking aud dreaming about ?u ideal,1 said to my self, ?' doubtie.F when the young !;:dy app-srs all my imaginings will vanish?th^re can be no doubt my lancy nas been playing tricks with me, investing a mere country maiden with transcendent graces and charms. While I was reasoning thus with myself, the young lady appeared, leading her old xolative with tender care. Worshipping an " ideal," indeed ! my most charming remembrance did not begin to do justice to the beautiful reality. A soul full of tenderness and sensibility seemed to have found a fitting home in a pernon and Cace of perfect loveliness aud grace. She blushed when, looking around, she chanced to see me, and again the play of ex pression on her features which had so interest ed me formerly, charmed me. As mother and I returned home. I described my lair neighbor, and asked my mother wh ? she wes ? "iier name,"'my mother said, "is Grace Denny, ar.d she is the loveliest, the most su perior youug woman 1 have ever in my whole liio met. it is too soon to think of suon things yet," she continued, smiling, " but some years he too it would make me hapny to see my dear eon married to just auch a good wo man." 44 Not quito so fast, mother," said I laugh ing way a little embarrassment which i was most anxious to conceal. i i'cund that Grace had become a constant visitor at my mother's, and i did not fail to improve the opportunity of becoming ac quainted with her. 9 She was indeed a gifted creature, endowed with all 44 nature's best." She sang, she danced, eho conversed with an indiscrible grace peculiar to herself. Though generally thoughtful and earnest in her manner, she had h vein of quiet humor, and her strokes of playful drollery charmed all the more from being unexpected. But more alluring to me than all her gifts and accomplishments, was the shrinking sensibility depleted on every feature of her sweet lace, i aoou found my self deeply?painfully interested iu her. I say painfully, for Grace received my assiduous attention with a perfect coolness and uncon cern that gave me great uneadineu. Some t met I thought she remembered my early im Sertiiicnce, and was disposed to punish me. lut there was a rival, a cousin of Grace's, who always stood in my way, and from whom Graco received, as a matter of course, num berless little attentions which I dared not evon offer. X hated this man; X was insufferably jealous; but Grace seemed either perfectly uncoi-scious, or perfectly indifferent to thebye play of animosity which was carried on oe tween us two. Grace, sweet, noble Grace, with her child like simplicity and sensitive woman's heart? who could resist her ? /could not; my whole soul was here. Xn vain had X called upon my vanity (of which X had plenty to invoke) to save me from the mortification of loving with out return. X could not stem or control the passion which, strong as a mighty whirlwind had seized me. One evening X sat by the piano while Grace sang to me. The cousin was not there, and dear Grace's varying color suggested sweet hopes to my vanity. X fancied I saw love in those soft music-breathing lips. It was the last evening of my vaoation, and surely I read a gentle farewell thought |n Grace s face. X was beside myself with joy at the idea?I was ae if in a blissful dream, a sweet delirium, a rapture of love. As Grace rose to leave the piano I caught her hand, un able longer to repress the on* thought that filled my heart, I exclaimed fervently : THE WEEKLY STAB.

I dia study, however, acd study hard, and at the end of the term passed examination with high hon or"?much to my dear mother'* pride and j >y. I determined to be wiser when I saw her again?to discover beyond a doubt if I were beloved, before I committed myself as I had done by foolish speeches. In order to satisfy myself on thia point, and perhaps also to gratify a little pique, when I returned home I did not go immediately to see <lraco as my feelings dictated, but waited till, ?it my mother s summons, she spent an even ing with us Even then, though my heart waa fbtl of tenderness for her.

I was quite ready to contribute to her amusement. I de voted myself to her the whole evening, and felt the sweetest pain I ever experienced when I saw. by Grace's dear, changing, sensi [ tive facc, that sho waa deeply pained and wounded When this foolery was carried to its height, I perceived Grace suddenly rise and step through tho open window out on the pl*tsa. In a lew moments I followed her; she bad re tired to a little distance from tue wiudew, and stood with her held leaning against the rail ing, weeping. Stealing softly behind her. I passed my arm around her, and whispered. "Ah. dearest Grace, do not deny it! You love me!" ?There was a little pause?then laughing, yet J-uli half crying. Grace turned aside her head Alas!

Nothing gave in in so much pleasure as to go about tTie country preaching <md singiug. A benevolent gentleman, well off in worldly gear, desiring to make him and his family comfortable in their declining years, generously presented him a title-deed t.-r three hundred end twenty i?cres of land. Strange accepted the donation with thankful ness, and wtut his way, preacha.ud sing ing as he went. But after a few months he returned and requested his generous friend to take back the title-deed. Surprised at tho request, the gentleman inquired, ?? Is there any flaw in it V' "Not the slightest " 44 Is not the ?*i>d g??od 7" 44 First rate" 44 Isn't it healthy V' 44None more so." "Why then do you wish me to take it back It will be a comfortable home for jou wheu you grow old. and something for your wife and children if you should be taken away." 44 Whv, I'll toll you. Ever sinoe I've had that deed I've lost my enjoyment in singing^ I can't sing my favorite hymn with a go.?d conscience any longer " "What Is that "This?

He contiuued singing and preaching, and preaching and singing, and the Lord, said tho lecturer, dd take care of him and his children aftor him. AnvasTraa wrm Bears?The editor of tho Louiston Falls (Maine) Journal has recently made an excursion to Umk*agog, and gives in the columns of bis paper an interesting ac count of the ex|>eneuoe which he gathered duriDg his wild and picturesque tour. Speak ing of the bears which abound in that vicinity, hs says that on the day previous to his arrival at what is called the "lake settlement," a brave little boy named Warren Bowley, nino years of age, the son of Isaac Bow ley, had a contest with a bear which near proved a se rious one for him. The account of the fight ran thus: "Old Bruin made a visit to the oat field, a few rods from the house for hts evening meal; when Warren concluded to nepper the var mint with a few buck-shot. lie took the gun and fired at the animal, wounding and en raging him. Young Bowley, nothing dauntod at the fighting propensities displayed by bruin, attacked the old fellow with a club, and went in for a 4 free fight1 in which he stood a fair chance of coming off second best The boy'e mother gave the alarm to the father and an older brother, who were at work a short die tanoe from the house , they at onoe made their appearance, when old bruin concluded to do camp, deeming any further contest too haa ardous as the odds were against him. Tho family gave chase to the old chap, but being provided with nothing suitable for his ospturo or destruction he made his escape. On tho Tuesday following he crossed the road a short distance from the bouse with a sheep in hia mouth. The 6ame lad again attacked him with a club he dropped tne sheep and made hia escape. This same animal, a short time since, as ?e are informed by Mrs Bowlev, paid her a visit. He put his fore paws on tne window sill, thrust his head and shoulders into the room, and quietly took his leave." A Natio* or Methodists.?The religit u* mission to the Friendly Islands, in the Pacifio Ocean, has been to successful that the entlro people have become a nation of Methodiats ; and the whole population, from the king (who is a " local preacher") down to his meanest subject, attend the Wesley an ministry Thee# Island* sometimes go by the name of Tonga They consist of a hundred and fifty, and lie between 12 deg and 25 deg south latitude, and 172 west and ITT deg east longitude.

She who makes her husband happy, and reclaims him from vice, is a much greater character than ladies described in romance, whose whole occupation is to murder mankind with shafW from the quirer of their tjti.?GoMtmttk
