I began lifo by running away from home, iioilean. we are told, was driven into hie ca reer by the hand of fate and the peck of a turkey Attilla started in lifo with no other CHU^e and capital than an old sword. which he was adroit enough to palm off for the divir.e weapon of Mars, and Robespierre owed his political oarecr to wetting his stockings, and there heard ?? the words which burn,'' which fired hi* soul and determined his course in life. My running away from home arose from a minor mortification, caused by carrying a pretty girl over a brook Donald Lean and myself were good friendi at fourteen years of age, and we both reg.-wd e I, with a liille more than friendship, pretty Helen 11 rah am, " our eldest girl"'at school. Wc romped and danccd together, and this lasted for su^h a length of time that it is with a feeling of bewilderment that 1 lookback on the mystery of two lovers continuing friends. But time came, a* come it mii^t, when jcalou-y lit her spark in my boyish bo som. and blow it into a consuming d ime. Well do I remember how and when the ''green eyed" perpetrated this incendiary doed. It was on a cold October evening, when Helen, Donald and myself were returning with our paronts from a visit to a ncighbor i: g hamlet As wo approached a ford where the water ran somewhat higher than ancle deep, we prepared to carry Helen across, as we were accu^tomcd to do, with hand? intei woven "ch;iir fashion," thus wo took our pretty passenger through the brook Just as we were in tbc middle of the water?which was cold enough at that time to have frozen anything like feeling out of boys less hardy than ourselves?a faint pang <.f jealousy nip ped my heart Why it was I know not, for we had carried Helen fifty times across the brook ere now wi:hout emotion, but this even ing I thought or fancied that llelcr. gave Don ? aid an undue preference by casting ber pretty arm around his neck while she steadied her self ou my tide by holding the cuff of my jacket No flame can bum so quickly ?>r with so lit tle fuel as jealousy. Before we had reache I the opposite bank, 1 was wishing Donald at the "bottom of the sea." Bung naturally impetuous, I burst out with? ?' You need na hand sae gingerly. Helen, as if ye feared a fa. I can aye carry ye lighter than Donald wad half of y j ' Surprised at the vehemence of tny t >nc, oar queen interposed with an admission tha* wc were both Mrong, and that the had no ?de* of sparing my powers. But Donald s ire wus kindled, and ho utterly denied that I wa? at 1 all qualified to compete with him in feat? of carriage. On such topics boys are generally emulous, and by the time we had reached the opposite bank, it was settled that the point should be determined by our single bearing Helen across the lord in our arms. Helen wa; to determine who had carried her most easily, and I settled with myself privately in advance, that the one who ob tained the preferer.co would really be the i person who stood highest in her affections. ; The reflection stimulated me to resolve to ex- j ert every effort, and I verily believo to thie day, that I could have carried Donald and Helen on either arm, like feathers. But 1 anticipate j Wc suffered all the rest of the party to pass j quietly along, and then relumed to the ford j i lilted Helen witu the utmost ease, and car- ; ried her lifco an infant to the middle of the ; water. Jealosy had also inspired a warmer love, and it was with feelings unknown before \ that I embraced her beautiful form, and 1 felt the pressure of her cheeks against mine I Ail went swimmingly, or rather wadingly, for a minute. But alas ! in the very deepest part of the ford?1 trod on a treacherous bit of wood, which rested, I suppose, on a smooth stone. Over 1 rolled, bearing Helen with me, I nor did we rise until fairly soaked from head to foot. I need not describe the taunts of Donald, or the more accusing silence of Helen Both believed I had fallen from mere weakness, anil my rival illustrated his superior ability bearing her in his arms for a. long distance ou our homeward path. As we approached the house, Helen leeling dryer and better hu mored, attempted to conciliate me But I preserved a moody silence?I was mortified beyond redress. That night I packed up a few things, and rin away My boyish mind, sensitive and irritated, exaggerated the negation it had re ceived, and prompted me to a course which fortunately led to better results thsirusuaUy attend such irregularities. 1 went to Edin burgh. where I found a material uncle, a kind-hearted, childish man, who gladly gave mo a place in his home, and employed uie in his business Wealth flowed upjn him I became his partner?went abroad?reside! four years on the continent, and finally re turned to Scotland, rich, educated?in short, every thing but married. One evening while at a ball in (Ha*gow, I was struck by a young lady ot quite unpro tendirg appearance, but whose remarkable beauty and high-toned expression indicated a mind of more than ordinary power. I was introduced, but the Scottish names had long been unfamiliar to my ear, and I could not catch hers. It was Helen something, and there was something in the face, too, that seemed familiar ? something suggestive of mixed pleasure and pain But we becamc well acquainted that even ing. 1 learned without difficulty her history She was from tLe country, had been well edu cated, her parents had lost their property, and she was now governess in a family of the city. 1 was fascinated with her conversation, and was continually reminded by her grace and refinement of manner, that she was capable of moving with distinguished success in a far higher sphere than that which fortune seem ed to have allotted her. I am naturally neither talkative or prone to confidence ; but there was that in this young lady that inspired both, and I conversed with her as 1 had never Conversed with any. Her questions of the various countries with which I was familiar, indicated a remarkable knowledge of litera ture, and an incredible store ot information Wo progressed in intimacy, and as our con versation turned on the causes which induced so many to leave their native land, I laugh ingly remarked that I owed my own travels to tailing with a pretty girl into the ford I had scarcely spoken these words ere the blood mounted to her face, and w?s succeeded by quite a remarkable paleness I attributed this to tho heat of the room?laughed?and at her request, proceeded to give the details of my ford adventure with Helen Graham?whi< h I did, painting in glowing colon the beamy and amiability of my love. Her mirth during the recital became almost irrepressible At itsconclusion she remark, d : ?? Mr. Huberts, is it possible that you have forgotten me?"

The Fashions.?The Paris correspondent o? the >'ew Vork Journal of Commerce fur nishes the following, which no doobt will prove interesting to our lady readers For the ball room, at this season, heavy stuffs, such as silver or gold moire antique*, brocades, velvets, Ac , are laid aside. Crape-', tulles, muslin^ embroidered in cotton or g"ld or filver, sote de Chtnt, are the materials in favor. A charming dress is of white grena ?line. The skirt nas five flounces, trimmed with a bias of white satin out in f>oints, which arc edged with a narrow moss fringe. When worn as a dinner toilette, this r be has a bi^h body, with batquincs to meot the top flounce, trimmed to match, and the front docoratcd with plaits very narrow at the wai't and wide at the .-boulders. On the middle of the body is a narrow rorerse, to match the flounce*, and fastened t gether by pearl bead.-. Tho sleeves arc formed of threo bouillonncs. ovi r which ?ro satin points; the lust bonill^nne reaches to the elbow, and is finished by a ru-ho of tulle. A similar ruche is placed louud the throat. A robe of white gr<<* grains or taffeta silk is trimmed with three flounces of cherry silk a quarter of a yard wide, over which fall black lace flounces. The luw body is trimmed tn brittelle*. with cherry riband, edged with black l*ce Tho short sleeves are finished with two frilts of black lace. But favorite and most magnifi cent toilettes arc those composed of bla:k or white laces?flounces or tunica of point de Bruxellcs, point d Aiencons, or English point made over tulle, crape or silk robes. A,;r?>ffo? of precious stones or chatelaines of flowers locp up the skirt Ear* of corn either in siher or gold are much worn for head dresses F?>r wnlkin? dresses there arc splendid taffea?, with pattern fl< unfici in velvet Other taffe tas, rot le?s elegant have shaded stripe" or chccka, the colors of which harmonizo in good tistc with tho grourd of the material There nre also iiffetas with stamped velvet stripes. Velvet has for many years been associated with taffetas for summer toilette, and is ex cec'lingly becoming. A great many Louis XIII fichus and fancy pelerines will he worn with bummer dresse* ; th? first has leng ends profusely decorated with bows and loops of riband Some are mads entirely of bouillounes, others are mixed with insertion, nnd others again are composed of lace. I'nder sleeves are still made either with a wristband and embroidered frills or with puff? and frills The musquetaire cuffs op,?n down the middle, and are embroidered and triame t with Vallencicnnes lace. Young ladies jen erally wear white under sleeres with two rows of embroidered trimmings, or lace, ac cording to the greater or less elegance of the toilette. Lilies and violets are the flowers the most i" fashion for spring and summer bonnets. While crape bonnets are bordered with a dark purple riband A deep blonde covers the front and extends on the curtain, which is trimmed with a second blonde.

A fellow the other day passed upon Mr Kris be ?, the ticket agent of the Great Western Railway Company, on the Canada side id the Suspension Bridge, a counterfeit note, the character of which was discovered too lnta to arrest the gentleman who had strolled over the bridge, but Mr Frisbee wa* net to be done in this way, and started in pursuit of his man, wh m he eventually found enj ying a nap in a car on this side. Of course he could not be arrested there, so retiring on tip-toe not to disturb his nap, Frisbee found two or three track men to whom he tinped the wink to shove the car across the bri lge It is said that the rurprife <>f that dishonest youth o?i coming to himself a British prisoner was some thing to witness When he had sufficiently gathered his Mattered wits, he attempted to drop a roll of spurious notes, but was detected at this too, anl finally went to jail miserably.
