THE MYSTERIOUS SALUTE [ I* rotn C haniberN 4 ourtial.] As I sat in the ladies' ro<>ta at the P?>t?rKn rough station, waiting the arrival of the Lon don train, two ladies camo in together. wh?*? appearance, though not exactly uncommon caught my eye They were nico looking and' a certain numbcrof years ago must have been pretty. They were not dressed alike, but there was a pervading tone about them aliko ,n ^otP The large collar, whose antique shape and rich work proclaimed a reverence for the taste of past days; the cool white stockings and sandailess prunella shoes ; the dresses, not too long, o! a prevailing gny eolor ; the brown orape shawl cf the one, and the small white turn over of the other lady ; the Tuscan straw bonnets, and their primrose and white trim mings, and the black and green veils append ed to each, together with the long-sbafted parasoli without fringe, and the neat little baskets they carried?made it evident that these were what are culled ''old maids " " Caroline," said one of them, who appear*, ?d the younger cf the two, "we are in capi^i tlme^ I reallj^fregrn to thirk it is lessdrosd ful than we imagined ; and if we can only get a nice carriage entirely to ourselves"?? '* Ah!" replied Miss Carolino, who acted rather in the character of chaperone to her younger friend-" ah ' there is nothing like being in good tiir.e. Better wait an hour Olementina, than be late one minute I ffeel quite glad to have brought ray knitting; in deed. I never go anywhere without it; and now that I cannct see very well withcut glasses, rcadirg ia cut of the question. You have Dr Gregory's Utters there. I see. Uow different the literary productions of the prwent Jay are ! Really, the trash young people read now is terrible, when I thiuk how tee were brought up But I wish Harriet Sryker would come I begin to think we ought to take our places." Very soon after this, J saw another little lady apparently about their own st.nding bustling about, turning round, looking intj corners, behind doors, aod into all sorts of im possible places, till suddenly she espied the iwo friends, and walking briskly up lo them, began to talk very fast, answering the in r^uiries of both ladies in a tone eo headlong, and with a manner so lively, that I could liurdly refrain from smiling both with pleasure and surprise This last lady was dressed in a dark-colored satin gown, with no stiffening or crinoline to lift its clinging folds from "her short slight person ishe wore a small black lace shawl, and white bonnat auorned with an immense purple "ugly" as they are tjo truly I'll led. " How many seats are in these carriage1- ?" asked the new comer, after mutual ereetin^ bad passed. " 1 really do not know," said Miss Clemen tina " I never travelod hut once before in a train, nnd I cannot say I remember But. vou know, wc could eacily atk." So saying,"she wen leisurely up to a very active, busy offi jial, who was creasing the wheels of tho car ringes, and said " Pray, my good man, can you tell mo how many scats there are, and what time we start ? Where is the station clock ' Ah ' I see ; it is iuite wrong by my watch, whirh never either gains or loses." Then, seeing he paid no s^rt jf attention to h?r ; nor inJecd heard her. fhc ror*;arked : "It is very badly arranged thai there is no information to bo had, or acy ore to refer to at these places " "All right, in a am !" said tho man. slam ming down the iron lid with great noise, and moving off sharply to another wheel. n ' H?w very rude those men are !" said Mi?s Caroline, in a condoling voice *' It is better 0 manage entirely for ourselves, my uear, Ihon to bo exposed to such insults " '?Ah!'' rejoined Miss Clementina, "how lifferent from the old stage-coach days, when >ne knew there were four seats inside whijl, my ladies might have for the asking, and when a scream or a handkerchief from tho windows would arrest instant attenticn tram :he gentlemen " " Gentlemen !" exclaimed Miss Caroline, one cannot n"W-a-daystellagentlemnn froiu 1 grazier or a shop boy?by the dress, at least; md the young men cf the present time arv ai ixccssiveiy satirical, and so devoid of that Referential respect, without which, a few roars ?go, a gentleman would have been shut out rom ladies s society altogether " It is bo, indeed,"' said Miss Spyker brisk v ; " anJ 1 declare to you nothing wou!d iu luce mo to travel ia the same carriage with. >ne of those f?st young men?nothing yt^i :ould name tome.

'?And not too near the end of the train, eithor,' said Miss Clementina. "I think we might venture " At this moment, a maid servant, who fol lowed them, put into the carriage aji infinite variety of brown paper parcels, ot every shape ard size A small "tiger" also camo up arm ed with three umbrellas, and bung round with bonnet boxes like a " bird cagu man," which be deposited as ho best could withib. The three ladies then took their seats "Thomas," said Miss Clementina, "have you seen the luggage sale?" ?? Yes, 'um," said Thomas, grinning, and pulling a lock of hair. "And the two carpetbags?" ?cid Miss Caroline. " And the baskets of fruit for Lady M (irc gor?" put in Clementina. 44 Two baskets cf fruit and the flowers is under this seat, um," 6aid Thomas, holding up the valance of the seat "Guard said they'd squash em in the van along with heavy luggage "0, very well. And, Thomas," said Miss Caroline, '? don't forget what I snii to y. u ab? utthegarden, now water thyse two square beds?weed the ore en tho lawn; and let me find tho gravel walks clean when we re turn." "And luind that wo don't find half tin roots dug up for weeds, and the rest washed l>, from using that large watering can That will do, June," added Miss Clementina to the maid ; " you may go now '* They now begsn to arrargo their hornets, settle their paicels and make foot stiol&tt fundry little boxes tbey had brought vri'L them. jAIter a short pautc, Miss Caroline (aid: " Don't like this at all?it is so very dark." "What will it be in the tunnels?' said Miss Clementina in an unhappy voice "Caroline," said Miss Bpyker, "I dent know what you will think of me, but I eon fess to you '?here she dropped her voice, and I only heard the words "gentleman in the carriage but I saw Miss Caroline and Mi?> Clementir a bridle up and dratv back, thio* ir.g suspicious glances at poor Mus Spyker wl'O seemed in an embarrassed minority Presently Clementina recommenced tho vcrsation "I don't in the least know," eaid ?he, " how we go off, but I begin to f el raihcr poorly?the engine makes such a teriible noise?one never could be beard screaming "No," said Miss Spyker, "and 1 believe the guard are most inhuman.

"O!" exclaimed Miss Clementina, hoping all tbe same to be overtuled by the other two, " I am afraid it would be so very forward and putting ourselves in bis way " *4 But," suggested Miss Spyker briskly, " if we were to give him tbe farther seat there, all would be filed except one, and with our iLawls and umbrella? we might make ap a figure in the middle seat opposite Clement)ua, ar elso, you see, with two vacant places, wo ?h uld be very likely to have intruders.

"I don't know what to do; what do you think7" " I really do not see that in such an emer ;ency it would be improper." remarked Cle mentina. in a tone vainly endeavoring to aeem leutral "And I declare." aaid little Miss Spyker. mrriedly, " I sec two other gentlemen linger ng here, close by Don t you really think we might '?he is so very highly respectable? uch a thorough gentleman, and not of the ?ew school " '?
