Our sketch, how ever, is an unficT?h(d daguerreotype of facts which recently transpired in one of the mont attiactive ii.lat.d citics of the ?? dark and bloody ground, ' and situated not a hundred miles from '/a belle. Riviere. " We submit the skeleton, leaving the elaboration and finishing touehes to be woven into dramatic texture, to artists enjoying more time and possessing mere skill and imagination than we can comtnnnd A lady, youthful, lovely, accomplished, and the daughter of a distinguished Keotuckian. enjoying independent competence, imperiously commanded the admiration of the gallants of the vicinage, and attracted zealous suitors from abroad. She was a belle of almost un rivalled chnrms. and received numerous de clarations of attachment, many of them ar- ' dent and sincere. Like most queenly damsels enjoying fortunate positions in the social world, she was un apt mistress of coquetry, j and wielded her resistless sceptre unmerciful ly upon all who ventured within the charmed radii of her matchless fascination*. She reigned ruthlessly during a long and brilliant career, and her reputation for come liness and social skill neither waned with ttre lapse of time or her cruel exercise of power, but seemed to be promoted without apparent ly approaching culmination, and splendidly illustrated the remorseless tyranny of capn- , cious passionless beauty. Fatigued at last, and sated with the common-place triumphs of ordinary coquetry, she introduced, by way of episode, the expedient of engagements to marry. Not satisfied, however, with the usual termination of happy courtship, she be trothed herself to two lovers, whom she adroit- i ly managed to keep profoundly ignorant of 1 their mutual pretensions and expectations. One suitor was a talented young minister, of fair possessions. The other a gentleman of '? elegant leisure,'' and lord of many broad acr*a Both were tilting for the whimsical beauty, each conscious of the other s devo- > tion. but, as we have said, mutually unaware of their mutual success. The young minister wss favored by the damsel's father, and was accepted by him for tho future son-in-law. Acquainted with the mother's hostility to himself, and conscious of her preference for his rival, as well as conceiving the father's consent adequate for tbo accomplishment of | his purpose, and trusting to time and circuia- i stances to mitigate her prejudice* the young minister forbore applicatl >n to her ! ilis rival, meantime, had been accepted by the mother?who, like him*elf, was ignorant of the young minis'er's successful cegotia- i tions?and deeming himself sufficiently justi fied to proceed, anil appreciating the father's objection to himself, he, on the other hand, as i his rival had refrained from submitting his petition to the mother, neglected his obliga tions to the father. Jhe artful complications of the daughter were, thus far, attended with happ'est success, and it is presumable sho hugely enjoyed the extraordinary and per plexing contretemy$. The rivals now became importunate, and solicited the speedy consummation of the con templaied alliance Their betrothed, how ever, capriciously vexed and tantalized them to her heart's content, deluding th-rn with al ternate hopes and promises, like M icheath's " asides to his two sweathearts," but finally concurred with their ardent petitions, and ap pointed the tame kour, and pi axe. 1?> the irjlemnizatton of the triangular bridal I Arrangements were subsequently made that added richer space to the culminating drama The minister and his betrothed agreed to eel ebrate their nuptials quietly, a tew of their mutual friends only being advised On the other hand ostentatious preparations were made for a magnificent display. Cards were dispatched far and near by cur heroine and the mother's choice, and all tho gallantry and beauty of the country were informed of the approach of the bridal period The absence of the minister, meantime, facilitated opera tions, and gripping rumor, strange to say. failed for once to mar the execution of a bril liant design, llow the parents remained in ignorance in the midst of such active prepa rations has not beeu developed, but those la miliar with the inventive wit of sprightly woman will rcudiiy imagine the keen diplo macy of our heroine, who so successfully man aged her double intrigue into the crisis of eon summation. Suffice it, that at the denoument the parents were the most completely con founded of all. The nuptial eve rolled round Guests as sembled in glittering concourse, exuberant in joyous anticipations, and splendidly decora ted The most brilliant vivacity and gayes: confusion prevailed The officiating minister appeared, and there were bright indications of the fullest realization of all happy antici pations. Moment? were fritted in pleusant in terchange of compliments Beautiful women vivaciously responded to happy devoirs cf gal lant gentlemen, antf the buz and musical hum of pleasant voices agreeably confused the senses, till the minute band of the parlor olock pointed the hour. Expectation now oommanded silence. Curiosity on tip-toe sus pended merriment, and only suppressed mur murs were heard in intervals of anticipation The sonorous bell sounded the hour, and ex pectation became intense Scircely had the last echo of the clanging clock died away in silence, when every cheek paled, and every pulsation of hearts suspended A heavy sound as of a falling human body, sunken with fearful suddenness to the floor, and ac companied by wild shrieks of terror, resound ing from an adjoining room. A rush as of hurrying feet, and a mingled echo of fearful exclamations, terrified every heart, a moment before so joyous. There was instinctive push forward ; the llimsy barrierintercepting the progress of the hastening throng gave w*y, and a spectacle was presented beggaring de scription. A frightened group of beautiful women, pale as the snowy robes of the bride, cowered in dismay over the fallen form of a stricken man, dressed as for a nuptial night, death<y pallid, and lying apparently lifeless in the centre of the floor. Several gentlemen were chnfiDg the temples of the fallen man, while a fair woman, agitated, but self-possessed, kneeling at his side, with his head in her lap, administered powerful restoratives. The bride, arrayed in all her transcendent lovelines<, stood on one side, the lustre of her brilliant countenance alternately deepening to carna tion, and paling to fleecy whiteness, while in all other respects she seemed calm and un moved as an idle spectatress of a dramatic scene. Opposite her stood a gentleman dressed like the fallen man, trembling and le&rfully agi tated, alternately rcanning the beautiful but passionless vision, before him, and the lifeless form at her feet. Outside the circle and hall bidden from view, sunken into the deep em brace of an arm chair, with her face buried in the folds of her garments, reclined the half paralysed mother of the bride, speecblees aud immovable as a statue. Near her, and trying to soothe her, stood the dismayed father as tounded and overcome by the apparent calam ity that had befallen his house. At the mo ment appointed for the nuptials, two bride grooms claimed the hand of the btide ' li jcq had come with glowing anticipations of hap THE WEEKLY 8TAJL Tkii nMQal Fudlr u4 N( ?| ifurtiiy at !?>?tl?y iw4U| ttu eaa be fouad la ur ether?la piWlikiloa *erur Ait mora lag.

Ine ac tors and witnesses of the tragic scene regained c >mposure. The father's self-posoeasion re turned Advancing to this beautiful but heartless author of the painful drama, he sternly couj warded her instant choice between the contesting suitors Tbe mother, still true to her partial ties advocated her favorite. The father maintained neutrality, bat repeat el bis commands The daughter, standing iu awe of her father, plead for a moment's re flection It was granted, but a flying messen ger was immediately despatched for the of ficiating minister, who, it was now discovered, had escaped in tbe confusion, unperceived, and had repaired, thoughtful and sorrowful toward his home. After much persuasion he returned, and the company, whose early gaiety now gave place to sadness and silence, again repaired to the parlors to await tbe final development of the clos:ng act. The broad doors were now flunjr open A stream of brilliant light, succeeded l>y a flood of beauty, irradiated the scene. Tbe bridal train swept in. Tbe nuptial cere mony bound indissoiubly the heartless but magnificent bride to the devoted but suffering young minister, who at the la?t moment abe had chosen. Header, you will imsgine the decision of the mother's favorite His sgony, if he loved her truly, most have been intense, yet withal it must have been mingled with emotions ot gratification in the consciousness of having escaped the misfortune of marriage with a passionless and marble hearted flirt. Tou will likewise judge if the deep affection of the young minister received its just deserts. We will not decide for you Our sketch is a true narrative and its moral is profound.
