For a week you'll sigh and mutter, 4 Clarabel,' and read Tennyson, and indite rosy billet-doux, and then you'll discover your inamorata to be seme little flirt of a grocer's girl; have a fit of the blues, think about committing suicide, and end by falling back into your old ways, and being a little more of a flirt than ever. But before you are quite off for your chatepu m Espagne, tell me who that sweet looking little girl is that I sec coming down your steps every morning ? Now, to my mind, she's a thousand times more bewitching with her coal black hair, and saucy, flashing eyes and pouting lips, than all the ' pure, pale lillies' in the world." "It's Kate Stanley, I suppose, my aunt's nieco. Rather a good-looking girl, to be sure, but as stupid as a beetle. The first day sho came here 1 was rather fancy struck too, but i tried to talk to her, and found her just the dullest piece of furniture you ever saw." ?4 Perhaps she was shy and embarrassed, or it may be home-sick." 44 Ob ! no, that wain t it. She was just stu pid, nothing more or less. She ii Mrs Rip ley's niece, and so of course no relation tome; but you know, under the circumstances it wus the eat-iest thing in the world to claim cousin ship; but do you believe the brainless crea ture had the stupidity to ask Mrs. Ripley if I were really her cousin Of course aunt Rip ley, kind-hearted old fogy that she is, begging her pardon for my irreverence, looked at me very gravely, and told me I 'mustn't bo talk ing nonesense to Kate;' remarking to Kate sotto voce, 4boy8 will be boys, you know, you mustn't mind him, my dear." ' "That was rather vexatious, to be sure," said llal, but still be didn t seem exactly sat isfied, and so the affair ended by his accepting an invitation to tea. and the promise of an in troduction to Miss Kate. '4 Ha, ha, Master Frank," said that yonng lady to herself, as she quitted her sentinel post, 44 you are laying out double work forme, sir. Wait till I get you nicely absorbed in this flirtation with 4Carabel.' and then see if I don't find a way of opening Harry Bentley's eyes. I don't care to have all the world in formed of my stupidity. But wasn't that letter a hit, though ?" Dressing herself with especial care, Kate descended to meet Harry Bentley. Sho was very quiet, but there was a twinkle in her mischievous black eyes, that confirmed Harry in his previous opinions, but which Frank was too busy with thoughts of 44 Clarabel" to no tice. Early in the evening the young gentlemen left the house, and Kate went upstairs to pre pare her recitations for the succeeding day Iiut if anybody had taken the pains to look over her shoulder, as she solved her first prob lem in algebra they would have seen that ?Le f ?und X a pair of black eyes. CBAPTKR III. That night a light burned late in Frank Ripley's room, and his fair neighbor knew that it was midnight before be retired. The next morning at breakfast she was sure that he looked paler and more excited than usaal, and she wub. therefore, quite certain that by tho afternoon a letter would have found its way to the Brooklyn post office Now, there was at Madam C a school a young lady who came up daily from Brooklyn, and who passed the post office on her way, and to this young lady Kate so far entrusted her secret as to desire her to inquire for the letter and bring it to her. By this means it was delayed for a day. to be sure, but Kate could think of no other so secure from detection, so she pa tiently waited till the next morning for the missive It came safely, and thus it read: 44 To CLAR4jJEL ?Dkarest Lady?It is with no little trepidation that I venture to address you for the purpose of returning my sincere thanks for the charming little note which found its way to me to-day. 1 44 Sweet prophetess, you are right. There is a chord in my heart which thrills respon sive to your touch, and to yours alone. To you belongs the power to waken melody in my heart no other can. Nay, I was not till this hour sensible of the deep fountain which was in my own soul, hidden from any inurtal eye, untroubled by any thrill of earthly emo tion Your voice has bidden its waters flow, and to you should its first cool gushings be consecrated. 44A crust of worldlinass has hitherto con cealed much of my heart from my own intro spection. But now as with trembling, anxioca glance I search its hidden depths, I feel the;e is something there worthy of your apprecia tion, I will say your love. You have enabled me to clear away the rubbish?shall not the light of your smiles, the dew of your tears, be to it culture and growth ? 44 Let mo hear from you again, sweet girl I am all that in tho advertisement I claimed to be. Tell me where you reside, and give mo permission to call on you. I know that your gentle, sensitive nature will shrink from meeting me in this informal manner. But give me the name and address of any gentle man friend of yours, and 1 will gain an intro duction to him, and so come accredited to you. I am in hafte to see you ; to behold the shrine wherein so fair a jewel is encased. " Until that blissful moment arrives, believe most sincerely and truly yours, Frank Riilev, " No ?, street." 44 The infatuated creature!' exclaimed Kate, 44 how does ho know what mad folly he may be rushing into? Well, I must answer the precious document, I suppose." , There was a crimson blush on her cheok, and a light of gratified vanity in her eye, that were more complimentary toi rank'aeloquence than her words were 1 think at that moment sho quite forgot how dangerous are the fasci nations of a flirt The reply was gentle and beautiful, and lady-like as Kate could make it, and thor oughly adapted to her knowledge of his char acter. Timidly grateful for his appreciation, she shrunk into a reluctance that could not be overcome, from meeting him at present. He must wait until they have grown better acquainted through correspondence. Refusing even to disclose her name, but dated " Hick's street," (the residence of her young lady friend ) By close watching, Kate was soon apprised of the reception of her note; nor was she greatly surprised, when the evening after, she saw him, by the clear moonlight, take a stage for Fulton Ferry. The next day she had the satisfaction of hearing that he walked up and down Hick's street all the evening, in the most distrait and miserable love-like manner in the world Kate had early communicated her plan to me, and I had watched its development with a great deal of interest; but at this stage of affairs 1 was absent from the city for some weeks, and so lost the thread of the romance I had been at home but a day or two, however, when returning one morning from a shopping expedition, I found awaiting me Kate's card, with the following pencilling up in it ?? Do come and see me as soon as possible, Carrie, I have so much to tell you." The next day was Saturday. So as early in the morning as etiquette would allow, 1 rang at Mr. Ripley's door, and was soon seat ed in Kate's room listening eagerly to the de tails of her story. "Mydear girl," she said, 41 you can't think how interesting the affair is getting- He writes to me three times a week, and some times oftener. Swears he is in love, and will marry me, let me be what I will 14 And you have told him nothing your self f" 44 Of oourae not?bow can I ? But you ve no idea how desperate be if getting Let ine read you a little extract from hit last letter." 44 Clarabel. mv own darling, for you shall yet be mine if there'a a power on aarth that can move your heart to lore n?e Why do you so resolutely bide youself behind the en vious veil' I love you passionately. It is not your person, not your position, simply your mind that has thus enthralled me \ ou say your uncle and sunt would never forgive you for thus entering into a correspondence with an unknown gentleman It is not in tha least necessary that they should ever know it. Give me the name of any gentleman acquaint ance, and though it were the Kahn of Tartars, 1 will procure an introduction ts him, and to come fully accredited to vou I would ra ther, to be sure, go to your would be the more gentlenanly way, tell him at once and frankly of my passion for y>u, and ask his pernft-?ii>n to address you. Then if you find that you cannot love me, I will forever banish myself from your presence. But such would not be the result, I am hare it would not. for the free and innocent frankness with which you confess your prepo?essions in my favor, give me welcome assurance that would you once break down thia envious wall wall between us, we should be mutually hap py in the result. Clarabel, you cannot refa<e to put an end to this horrible tortnre of sus pense." ?* There,'' said Kate, laughing, as she foldod the letter 44 Isn t that tragic? It is work ing to a charm. I think. And to charm all, he is getting so pa'e and thin, and aats so little that my good aunt and uncle are terri bly worried about him " " Kate, Kate,' I interpoged, " it is you who are playing the flirt now " She blushed, and looked down with an ex pression which puttied me exceedingly. '?Ob ! no, I am not," she said, " and if I were, it is but a just punishment It bids fair to be a complete and wonderful cure I do believe he has not called on a lady thete three weeks: and once or twice when we have had company, he has behaved himself with all the sober propriety of an actual benedict." 44 You certainly cannot call him heartier after all this, Kate." ' He has. I admit, cvinced mora feeling than I expected. ' she answered with the same downcast, blushing look, bnt then m before she raised her eyes warmly and oontinued 4*ao much the greater need you know of his being rescued from his evil habit*. I really do think he will be quite in marriageable order when I am through with him " Ah ! ha! little lady, then perhaps you in tend to take pity on him yourself by-ani-by '? " 0, nonsense, liarry Benlley is far mora to uiy taste. He comes here very often, and t think him the moat agreeable person 1 ever saw " I had a half suspicion that this was only said to arouse my jealousy, and to ward off farther inquiry on the old acore. Poor Kate well knew that Harry was an old friend of mine, perhaps I was a little jealous, for 1 an swered: "If you like liarry so well, and he ii equally pleased with you, why don't you dis entangle yourself from this affair with Frank, and accept Hal ?" She was playing with tha tassel of her morning dress, and *ho looked up to me with acunning, guiitical half-smilingglanca, which i was puttied to interpret, and then in a mo ment she said: "There it is again. How am I to get rid of this affair ? To tell the truth. I'm not a little puttied to know how it ii to terminate." I was provoked with her, coquetting te*s* that the was, and when I left her, I was very much in doubt as to what her real intentions were. CBAPTBR IT. '? tame,' said Kate to me, as a day or tw ? later I met her on Broadway, '-turn and walk with me a little way if you are not in to t much haste, I have something I wish to say to y?? ' I readily acquiesced, for her merry, mischievous glance promised sport. " Uo* J?u along with your flir tation ? I inquired. ' Oh, bravely, you remember that terribly earnest letter I read for you ' Well, after you left I sat down and answered it, telling him I was really sorry for having caused him so much pain, but that at the commencement of the correspondence I had no idea of the difficulty there would be in reconciling myself to the idea of a meeting after having corres ponded so familiarly, and that though I was very favorably impressed by his letters, and thought it more than probable that a perioral acquaintance might prove as objectionable to me as to him, I could not feel that it would bo either prudent or proper under tha circum stances. 1 was aware that he might consider me coquettish, but assured him I had not act ed from any such motives and concluded by desiring that his correspondence might cease altogether. It was worked as skillfully aa possible, so as not to wound his feelings?for indeed, Carrie, I do begin to pity him?and I hoped it would give the whole thing its ter minus. But what do you think the foolish fel ? low did' Why instead of holding a\? peace as he ought, he sat down and wrote the noatansical I ;ttcr yo? ever read; nonsensical. I saw by Kate s blush it was lover-like, it was enough to move the heart of tha nether mill stone ; 'he could not give me up; he could give up life sooner ' 1 should have thought he was just hoaxing me, but 1 heard him pac ing his room all night, and dear ma," said she, "I was just foolish enough to lie awake and cry; though that wis all iur vexation, fori am sure I couldn't think how tha matter was to end But I have it now," she said, glanc ing up half sadly, half merrily into my face. 44 Well," I asked eagerly, what is it r" "I m going to write to him, promising an interview. You know he has called at your house with me onoe or twice. Well, I'm go ing to write to him that I have ascertained that he visits at a house of a mutual aciuain tance, and that I will call there next Tursday evening, when if he chooses also to call he will meet me I can easily manage to go myself without suspicion, and you and I will watch him, Carrie, and see if he does feel so badly ah he pretends I will beg him not toaay a word to you, as 1 dare not trust any one with the secret, and so when bis Clarabel doesn t come he will think she has deceived him. and thea I will write to him no more letters, and be will conclude it all a hoax and give it up " [TO UK COXTIHURD ] Col Fremost's Mariposa Laxd Claim ? \ letter from Thos Denny Sargent, appears in the New York Herald, giving a very dif ferent account of the value of the Mariposa slaim in California from those that have ap aoared.
