A TALE OF TRUE LOVE. Jane Harwood was the Toungest and an* questionably the prettiest of three sisters, who all had considerable pretensions to beauty. A peculiar charm, of truly feminine character, presided orer her feature*, and more especial ly in her dark ejes, 11 That teemed to love whatever tliey looked u pon '' W e were cousins; wc might have been con nected by a nearer tic, but I did not think so then. At the period to which I am alluding, Jane was almost eighteen. Business had de tained me for several months at Kdingburg, and I knew nothing of what was passing in London, except through the medium of the post; and every body knows-how little infor mation an occasional letter affords My sur prise. therefore, may be conjectured, when on calling at my Aunt Harwood $, the morning af ter my return to London I learned that Jane was just off on a continental t nr. Her mother informed me that auut Mary was going to travel on the continent, and nad kindly re quested Jano to accompany her " ?' I sup poso Jane is delighted at the invitation V' "Why, nu,"_ replied my aunt, " I cannot say she is ; she is not at all in the spirits you im agine." In a few minutes aunt Mary's car riage drove to the door, the only one by the way in the family, and alter a low minutes had elapsed, occupicd by my aunt Mary's expres sions of pleasure at seeing me. and my regrets at our being so soon to seperate. poor Jane en tered the apartment She indeed did nut ap pear in the spirits I had imagined; her face was pale, her air dejected, and her eyes bore the evident te.Uim< ny of much weeping For an instant a smile played on her beautiful features, as I sprung to salute her ; but it was merely for an instant, ati l then she looked more like an exile about to take her last fare well of her kindred, then a young and beau tiful girl ju^t commencing a tour of pleasure From the observations I made. I was perfectly convinced that my two aunts were as anxious for this journey, as Jane was reluctant.?all this was a perfect mystery, and so it remained; for my aunt coutrived some pretence for cal ling Jane away, just as I was on the point of questioning her on the subject. When everything was adjusted for their departure, and Jane had kissed her mother and sisters. I approached to take my farewell salutation. The poor girl burst into tears and hid her faco on my shoulder; I felt a strong inclination myself to shed a tear. After catching the last glimpse of the carriage as it rooled rapidly away, I returned to my lodg ings, out of spirits, and very much disposed 10 quarrel with the hrstperson who should gpeak to :ue. Jane had promised to write to me, hut more than two months elapsed ere I received a let tcr. It was dated from Paris, and contained some general ob-ervations en tho country, with a slight intimation that she w is indis posed. But it was not this intimation that so much alarmed me. as the tone of dejecti >n visible in every line, and I instantly resolved to follow them, and ascertain from Jane's own lips what thus could oppress her r atural buoy ant spirit. An engagement of some import ance detained me for several days; indeed, it was more than a fortnight ere I quitted Lon don. On enquiring at the Hotel from which the letter was dated. I was disappointed ; they had left Paris a few days previous After ascertaining their route, I immediately com menced a pursuit, and sometimes sleeping at the inn at which they had rested, and some times losing all trace of them, I entered Brussels. As it was late in the afternoon, and I knew do one to whom I could apply for information, I though it as well to defer my random search till the following day After dinner I strolled mt, unconsciously, in the direction of the thea tre, I entered it; the performance was going jb, and after gazing at the stage till the act war concluded, I proceeded to survey he au iience My attention was immediately direct 8 J by beholding my Aunt Mary in the next box ?Surely that is not Jane by her side V Be fore my t>entence was finished I had discovered that it was indeed Jane, but so altered ' I had heard that sorrow or continued excitement of any kind h?s a tendency to change the com plexion, but I never saw it illustrated till then. VV'hat an altered beiug w is my sweet cousin ; her person was attenuated, her skin darkened, Her eyes hollow though bright, and her faco looked healthy, though there was afaiuttinge >n the cheek. The surprise and sorrow I ex pressed evidently dipleased my aunt; and when I hinted that a theatre was an improper place for an invalid I was informed by her that in eminent physician had advisod J aue to take 13 much exercise and amusement as possible. I ittended them to their Hotel, and took my eave, with the premise to call the next niorn ng, I did so, and found my aunt breakfasting ilone, Jane not having yet risen I had been onversing about an hour with my aunt when ler attended entered with a message from 'anc. requesting permission to remain iu her ipartmeut, as she felt much indisposed. Mu tant declared she could not comply with her equest. and rising, left the room with the ser ant In about half an hour she returned, ending the poor invalid. Her face was pale, rery pale; but her eyes still retained a dat ;ling brightness; she slightly pressed my land as I led her to the sofa on which she unk quite exhausted. A gentleman t j whom ny aunt had a recommendatory letter was announced and as Jano was unable to bear he presence, my aunt was compelled to leav ? is, and receive the gentleman in another .palment. The instant my aunt left the room >oor Jane seemed as it were re-animated Ste ose from her reclining posture, and I wzs oolish enough to imagine she was better, rhen I saw a bright Cush suffuse her deathly ountenance- " Oh, no," said she, as I ven ured to express my hopes; "Oh. no, I shall ever be better ; but, my dear Charles I have . favor to ask, and I feel confident you will ;rant it"?she hesitated?'? I wi:h you to de iver this," said, drawing a wedding riDg from >er bosom, and placing it in my hand, "tufthe ierson who I shall name;?had I baa the lightest idea of seeing you, I would have en eavored to have explained everything by rriting: but I know not how it would have een possible, for I never have been an in tant alone This morning I endeavored with , pencil to write his name on a leaf of a pocket 00k, but could not?my hand so trembled.
