Daring the early part of theramiB?r, in the year 18?, ifrfcappened that two young sports men in the highlanda of Scotland, wearied by a leng day's shooting, were approaching a hill-side spring, famous in that wild district for the ooldness and par en ess of its waters. Tbey had just reached tba brow of tha eleva tion overlooking tho rural fountain, when they saw a young girl, in the first blush of woman ly beauty, close by the spring. She was sitting on a luw rock tbat rose by the side of the fountain, ber dimpled elbow resting ou the oiiff. and ber bead leaning on her hand, iler figure was slight and lylph like, yet exquisitely proportioned, lier hair was golden in color, and flowed in natural ringlets on her shoulders. " See was I not right ?" said one in a wbis per to his companion 41 She had been gath ering lillies ; there are some still in ber hand. But let us descend " The speaker bad bean leaning carelessly on hid gun us he spoke, and, now, preparatory to proceeding, threw it to his shoulder. Unfor tunately the trigger caught in a bramble, and tho piece went off, lodging its contents in his side. Ho staggered and fell " Good heavens!" oried his oompanion, springing to bis assistance, and lifting the wounded m::n up, " are you killed !" The young girl we have described had been Luried in a profound reverie, but at the report of the gun she started, looking wildly around to see whence it proceeded In a moment she caught sight of the wounded man lying on tbe heather above her, while bis friend, lying on one knee, supported the head of the sufferer. As soon as the sportsman saw the girl was watching him, ho shouted and waved his arm for help The timid Scottish maiden, who but a mo ment before was on the point of flying, now turned and began to ascend tba hill side. " My poor friend," said the sportsman, doff irg his bat as she approached, " has met with an unfortui'Bte accident, and I do not know what tc do or where to bear him " A deep blush dyed the girl's cheek as she encountered the gaze of a stranger, but it pi*sed off immediately, and, with a presence of mind worthy of one older, she stooped down to see if the wounded man was dead *' lie breathes still," she said, as she broke off a delicate leaf from one of her lillies and held it to bis nofctril; and looking at his corn paninn, she continued, " do you think you could carry him to the spring?" Tho sportsman answered by carefully lift ing his friend up in his arms and bearing him down the hillside, the young girl following. " Place him here,'' she said, pointing to the ?lightly elevated bank, '' aad lean his head against the rock Everything, ' the contin ued, now depends on your getting a surgeon ?<>on. If you w;ll follow tbat path to your right around tho turn of the hill, you will find our cabin. There is a pony there, which you can take and ride to the little town of Abernethy, tome five miles off. where fortu nately a surgeon may be had At the cabin you will find a shepherd or two?tell them to bring some bedclothes and a settee, on which to carry your friend to the house. It is an humble place, but better than the hillside. Cy the time you got back with the surgeon we shall have your friend in a comfortable bed, and I hope doing bettor " She spoke with so quick a perception of what was best to be doue, and did it so com posedly, that the sportsman, submitting hiia self entirely to her guidance, hastened to ex ecute her commission Wheu he had vanished around the hill the young girl took some water in her hands, and began to bathe the face of the wounded man. But he still lay insensible, and she persisted in her task for some time, without any signs of life being perceptible "Alas!"' she said, "bo is dead! and yet but half an hour ago he was in the full strength of manhood It cannot be?I have heard," she continued eagerly, as if a sud den thought had struck her, and she began to tear open his vest to get at tho wound, " that my grandsiro died at Culloden from the blood a< agulatiug in the wound, when, if a surgeon had been by ho might have beeu saved. What it this should be the case here ?" She had by this time bared sufficient of hia person to get at the orifice of the wound Tbe dark gore had almost stiffened about it. She stooped down and tenderlycommenced wiping ? away the congealed blood, She had not been long engaged in her task of mercy when the wounded man stirred, and opening his eyes, fixed them earnestly upon her " Where am I he inquired, for his mem ory was yet vugue. "Ah! I remenU?er?my gun went off But where is Harry "If you moau your friend," said the yourg ; lady, " he is gono for a burgeon I have con sented to watch by you till some shepherds oomo to carry you to our cabin And here they come," she exclaimed, clasping her hands, equally glad to conclude this embar rassing tt tc u tete and to see tbe wounded man , placed in a situation of more comfort "Heaven bless you!" said the sufferer, with emphasis. "You have saved my life." In a few moments the wounded man wis placed on a settee, brought by the shepherds, and the little cavalcade wended its way to ward the cabin. The maiden walked last, and by hor side stalked sadly tbe two dogs of the sufferer; and the dumb animals, with a sense almost human, aa if appreciating her kindness to their master, looked up affection ately into her face every few steps. Tbe cabin was like those exuttng everywhere in the highlands?a rude but cheerful habitation, but was both larger than usual, and adorned with more taste inside. In about two hours the friend of the suffer er returned, bringing with him the surgeon, who was closeted with his patient for more than an hour, and when he came forth the young girl was sitting anxiously by the fire, in OJinpany with a middle aged woman, the wife of one of the shepherds. "Oh, Miss Helen, said the old surgeon, answering the inquiry of her eye?, " you have saved the life of as brave a lad as ever shot a muir-oock or stalked a red deer. I know all about it, you see, lassie; you came of a gen erous and gallant race," and he patted her head as a father would that of a favorite daughter, adding, a* if t* himself. " tis a pity the Southron has the broad acres that were once her ancestors; and that she, com ing of a chieftain's line, should have nothing but a cabin and a few bits of hill side for a flock or two of sheep " The next day tne wounded man was pro nounced better, but still in a very critical po sition ; and his removal was forbidden by the old surgeon. "Ye maun keep him here awhile yet, las sie," he said, addressing HUen ; "and I'm al most persuuded ye'll hae to be his nurte. He has nae sisters, or mother to send for, it seems; and men are very rough nurses, ye ken. Mrs. Colin is here, and will nae doubt help; but ye maun be his nurse, maist of the time, yeer self, 'tis what can't be helped." And ao Helen, timid and embarrassed, was compelled, from the urgont necessity of the ease, to attend on the wounded man. His friend indeed remained to assist in ttursin# him; but the invalid, with the whim of a sick man, soon began to tefufeo hia medicines, un less administered by the hand of Helen. Moreover, until the danger was oTe*"> .?,s friend watohed every night at his bed- de, and in consequence requiring a portion cf the day for rest, Helen was necessarily lelt alone, for hours, with the wounded man. The sur geon, for tbe first two weeks, came ?very day to see his patient; but, after thu, visited him less frequently. He now mended rapidly ; began to ait aj>, THE WEEKLY STAR.

And she ro?e a# if to depart "Helen, hear me,"said her lorer, detain ing her ; " bear me only for one word more bmce the hour that you sared my life, I hare lored you, and every day I spent in your so ciety has increased that love; but if you will say that you love another, I swear never to speak on that subject again/' Sue endeavored to detach her hand, which he had caught a second time, but he held it too firmly. " You are rich, and I am poor," she said, at last, "you would some day re pent of this thing Eren your friends would laugh at yourfolly." But this time Helen faced him, and with a dignity that quite awed his rapture. " Mr. Alleyne, will you let me go ? ' she ?he Mid. "1 am an unprotected girl, and you presume on my situation " "No, no"'he exclaimed, but be let go her hand. "You, misjudge me, indeed, Mtfs Or*.'me, for your blood is as good as mine * and even if it were not, Donald Alleyne is not the man to love for rank or wealth. Helen, whose pride rather than heart had ?poken, was moved by these words, and she lingered irresolutely Her lover saw the Change in her demeanor and hastened to take advantage of it. Nor did it long continue to resist his pleadings She loved him indeed only t" well, as she had all along confeaaed to her own heart. Still even when brought U half acknowledge that he had a place in her her heart, she would not promise to be hie without a condition He argued long and earnestly, but her answer was alwavs the aam? ' " mast part for a year," she said " You think now, with the memory of your illneaa fresh upon you, that you love me; but I am oome of too haughty a blood, though poor now, t*> marry even where I might love, oa so sud den and questionable an attachment. You are nch. fashionable, and with influence; I am the last of a line proscribed ever since Callo den \ our place ia the giy world, where you will be surrounded by troops of friends, mine is in the humble cabin, where a few more de pendents hare been my only companions ever ?nee my father died If you really love me, you will return at the end of the year; and if you forget me, I shall live here with the heather and muir-cock as I lired before " Her lover was therefore compelled to sub mit. There was a proud independence in her banishment of him which became, he said to himself, the daughter of chieftains who bad fought at Bannockburn andJFlooden Fields and sacrificed their all at Culloden Two weeks from that time Donald and hia friend left the Highland cabin, and Helen was alone. Never btf .re had she known what it was to be alone. She nerer knew how much she loved till her lover was away. But even a year will pass, and just a twelve month from Donald's departure Helen aat at the spring side, which she had named for the trusting spot if her lover proved faithful. She had been there already for many hours watch ing with an eager timid heart, half trembling ^ own fellj in expecting him, half angry with herself for her doubts ; but now, u iU gleaming came on yet no Donald appeared, her bosom swelled nigh to bur-ting She rose frequently and looked up the bridal path, but nobody was in sight At last the stars began to oome out; the wind grew chill; and with an almost broken heart she roae to return to the cabin. "I might have known thia," she said aad lr "Do not all my books tell the same * L er the old "tory of trusting woman and de ceiving man." At this instant an arm was thrown around her waist, ai.d a well remembered voioe whis pered in ear '"Now, Helen dear, one of our cruel sex, at least, is falsified. I thought to steal on you unawares and suprise you; ?n.i so went around by the cottage to leave my hor^e there. Had you looked behind, instead of before you. you would have frustrated my little scheme by seeing me. I have waited a whi le year impatiently for this day. and I find you mine at last " A month from that time, Sir Donald Alleyne introduced his bride to his ample domains in L; gland ; and never had a fairer wife entered the splendid hall of his ancestors. In that great gallery of the castle is a pic ture of a young Scottish girl, with a half pen tive face, setting by a mountain spring; and the old housekeeper, as the goes the rounds with visitors, pauses before the portrait to say "That is the likenen of the laat Lady Alleyne , and lovely she was, and as good a/* lively. By her husband, the late baronet, ?he was always called the Lilly of the Valley. Why, I have never heard." Arrangement or smallplowbi-6ikdbii.
