EVENING ST A R. i Tha Singular Manner in which Mr Eolline fell in Love and got Married. i Mr. Roderiok Rollins was a bachelor who j had wen some forty nine fummers, and al though he was a bundle of eccentricities, there were few men more popular with old married ladies, or even with such single one* as had ! ceased to be flighty and had begun^ to take a sober view of the pomp? and vanities of this wicked world It is just possible, indeed, that the gentleman's popularity might be attribu ted In part to a very handsome estate which he had inherited from his father; for I have generally observed that a large landed proper ty is a great enhancer of the wit, beauty, or profundity of its possessor As Mr. Rollins gradually lumbered along in life, he naturally became leas and less disposed to rapid locomo tion, and at the time he is introduced to the reader, he had dropped one and another of his regular visiting acquaintances among the la dies, until the number had dwindled down in number to exactly three families In one of these families?that of Mr. Petti j grew?there ware two elderly young ladies, I named Rachel and Amelia These ladies were . of the respective ages of thirty seven and thirty-nine, and having outlived their taste for balls and jams, new solaced themselves I wi'.h the society of a few old beanx who would occasionally drop in of an evening and have a quiet game of backgammon with them by tha fide of an old fashioned Liverpool coal fire. Among theie visitors, none was more welcome than was Mr. Rollins. His stories were gen | erally long, and he had much to say of the wad degeneracy of the present fast age ; but then, beside being rich in the funds, he was rich in hi* reminiscences cf the olden time lie would every now and then so affoctingly allude to the brilliant evenings of bvgonc years, when be used to dance wich the Mioses Rachel and Amelia at the public auemblies, that the young ladies would, in imagination, rcvol again through those gay and festive scenes; and, as Mr. Rollins named ono and another of the belles "i*l their adorers who used to figure in the Spanish dances and ia dies' chains of that simple era of Terpsichore, the tears would course on? another down their innoceut noses Mr Rollins was also a con noisseur, and a highly-gifted critic in green and black teas, and was well posted in cough nnd rheumatic medicines generally SiLce he had got along in years, he nad likewise come to tiike a great Interest in church matters; he kept the run of proceedings of all the annual convention, ana w&s supposed to be familiar with the private opinions of several of the Bishops Now, none of these subjects were indifferent ones to his f air companion", nrd as such human weaknesses as love and marriage seemed out of the question, th? intercourse between them was as calm and oool as moon shine In winter. The oondltion of anient beaux and ancient belles who have retired from the drawing rooms of mirth and fashion, and have taken to chess and needlework, and to sober reminiscences of the heart-conflicts they have undergone, is not of the cheerless character which some consider it. It may be likened to that of pensioned soldiers carefully housed in some snug harbor provided by the State, where they may rest and smoke and tilk of the mighty deeds they have done for the residue of their lives. The wars are over, the battles have been fought; and what, though one may have lost an arm. another a leg, and a third has b%en lopped of all his limbs, yet the pain arising from the wounds have been long forgotten, sa<? they now re member but the incidents and the glory of the conflicts. One of the other families which Mr Rollins used to visit, was that of the well known Dr. Anodyne. The Doctor himself was a gentle man of the old school, and his lady could give you the history cf every family of note ?n the metropolis, but the great attraction to Mr Rollins wa3 the society of their daughter liar riet Mies Harriet had been in her day a ?elabrated beauty, but having now attained her fortieth year, it was generally supposed that the grand meridian of her charms had bean passed. In oarly life there had been some talk of a ma?ch botweon her and Mr. Rollini, but this had long blown over and their conversation was now, to all human ap pearance, as rational and nnimjassioned as though they were a oouple of prosy philoso phers. The remaining family, honored with the pleasant acquaintanceship of Mr. Rollins was that of Mrs. Atterbury, a widow lady of considerable wealth and position. She was the sister of Mrs Anedyne, and consequently, her daughter, the amiable Miss Anna Maria, was own ocusln to Miss Harriet, and very nearly of the same ripe age. Both thase young ladies wero on terms of the most agreeable in timacy with the Misses Rachel and *tmeiia Pottigrew They had beja companions in girlhood, bad promenaded on the Battery, had taken moonlight walks in company with ea-;h other and their lovers through the gray bled walks of St John's Park, and would doubtless sometimes have extended their stroll* to the Fifth avenue, were it not that the time L treat of was anterior to tne discovery of that fashionable thoroughfare. When these fair spinsters would get together and grow in spirited and loquacious as they sipped their hyson, Mr. Rollins was their toast and tb?ir oraclo. But delightful as was '?h? relation subsisting between them and their antiquated beau, It was temporarily destined to a very singular kind of an interruption. All at once, as one of the wonders of the world, a new light sprang up in Mr RoillnB's mind, and this light was none other than a reflection from the torch of Cupid How it came to pass that that heart a adamant, which during the fervor and pas sion of youth had resisted the well* directed volleys from female eyes of every color, and had at last suocumbcd, must forever remain a mystery. But Mr Rollins's love ws? as droll as it was untimely. Woria than the poor ass of the schoolman, hesitating between two bundles of hay, Mr Rollins had fallen in love with all four cf his female companions at the same time At first, this bachelor love developed itself in periodical fits of partiality for oue or the other of tha ladies, just as it happened ; vacillating, as it were, from day to day Tnus, for a while, Miss Amelia Pettigrew would be the queen of his affections. He would call to mind some roguish dimple of her girlhood, and what a splendid set of teeth one of her regular ringing laughs would disclose in those days of remote antiquity When Miss Amelia was thus boosted on the topmost round of Mr Rollins's ladder of weathero.xik admiration, she would suddenly be precipi tated to the ground by a dim shadowy recol lection on the part of that gentleman of the bewitching manner in which Miss Anna Maria Atterbury used to dance nearly a quarter of a century ago. Then the tender memories of his early partiality for Miss Harriet Anodyne would so stir up poor Rollins s vagrant sensi bilities that he almost made up his mind to pop the question to her. He prwbably would have done so on a certain afternoon, had he not stopped in at the Pettigrews on his way to Dr Anodyne's. It happened on this ooca lion that Miss Rachel was at home alone, and her tender solicitude in the matter of a cold which Mr. Rollins had taken, affected him with such a? all overish sort ot a sensati<? that for a period of some forty eight hours the I idy in question was the mistress of bis heart Most certainly, his eiolusive predilections in favor of Miss Rachel lasted no longer than the time I have specified, and he came at last to entertain a compound kind of lowe for his four charmers collectively His condition of mmd was truly pitiable, for beside the nervousness attendant on so anamal'<us and whimsical a state of the affections, Mr. Rollins s knowl edge of the female heart led him to the well grounded aonviction that even should he make proposals to one of the four, he wjuld ir cur the riek of losing the friendship of the T maining three Now, this was a contingency : too painful to think of, and the poor enamored 1 gentleman spent a whole year in devising ways and moans whereby It might be avoided. As yet, neither of the ladies in question hsd the remotest suspicion of the whirldwind of eccen tric passion which was tearing away the very foundations of Mr Rollins s moral being ; fir if at any time he happened to make run ex traordinary demonstration, it was credited to the accouDt of a sudden and unexpected twinge of rheumatism with which he iq^s oc casionally afflicted. One evening in the month of November, while Rollins was sitting in his lonely r->otn. meditating on the past, and wondering whither the tempest within would eventually lead him, he suddenly bounded from his chair, snapped his fingers, looked out of the wirdow, put more ooal on the fire, plumped himself again in his chair, and then soliloquisod, 44 It's of no use," said he, '? to endure this confounded perplexity any longer One thing is certain; I love them all; and why should I not at once deofare myself Suppose they do laugh at my quadrupled affection, wbat then ? I am suro they must see ruy sincerity, and conclude that I am a man of an immense ly large heart, thus to be able to love all four of them with this inextinguishable ardor Vet as I can marry but <me, the selection must be made by their casting lots for me, and passing strange it is too, that this happy thought should never have occurred to me nntil the p/esent hour. And then, in this de licious lottery, I shall be sure on my part to drew a prise fur the very good reason that therb are no blauks. But will the ladies enter into this arrangement* By my ?oul thej must My proposed plan will at least ahow that 1 am not partial, and there will be no occasion among them for jealeusy " It was to Miss Harriet Anodyne that Mr Rollins first intimated the tender sentiments she had inspired, and on the first mention of it tho young lady^ilushed overpoweriugly But as Mr. Rollins further declared that the strength of his affections was equally great for their three mutual friends, ter counte nance underwent an expression of the moat comical curiosity; and as at last the pro poaed Scheme was divulged whereby a sslec tion was t? be made. M<ns Harriet laughed until she well nigh choked "Ah, Mis* Harriet! you may luugh, but devise a be'ter plan for mo, if you caL You know very well that if I were to select any one of the other three and leave yon, you would consider yourself slighted and neglect ed. You see. then, that it is quits necessary for the happine6Sof all concerned that I should carry my point, and as I profess to be above board in all my transactions, I shall fully state the ease to your father, and ask him to su perintend the drawing " "Of course, Mr Rollins," replied Miss Harriet, "you can ask pa'a oo-operation In anything you choose to, but the wcule proce dure would be ao strange and unusual, that eo far as I am concerned, I must beg?" "Now, Miss Harriet! if you please. beg nothing," interrupted Rollins, "for rely uptn you have seriourly considered the subject, jou will not wish to be excused yourself What sense would there be, I ask you, in my going out of our precious little circle, for a wife." On the day of this interview, Mr. Rollins made known his delicate intentions to the other three ladies, and at first they were dis posed to regard the matter in a jocular li^nt, but on being assured by Mr. Rollins that he loved them all witty tHe poetic ardor of a never-dyinj aaection, it ia difficult to say whether amasement or mirth was the predom inant emotion of their breast* When Mias Harriet Anodyne related to her father the sin gular communication which had been made to her, the Doctor was thrown into suoh convul sions of la^gitkcr, that he protests to this day be gained seven pounds of flesh on the strength of it. In the evening the four loved ones got to gether and compared notes, and what a glow and fluiter of chatting excitement ihey were alt in to be euro. Miss Atterbury, Miss Anodyne and Miss Rachel Pettigrow made a feint of treating the whole subject with derision ; but Amelia Pet tigrew very candidly confessed that she was attracted by the novelty ?f the thing, and if the rest of the girls would agree she would oheerfully fall in with Mr Rolling's humor. ??And girls! why should we not?" she in quired, 44 one of trill be sure to get a good Uusband, and we may be equally snre that uuless we consent to be wooed in this quar terly manner, some other than one of our own dtar selves will be the winner i4a says that any person acquainted with Rollins might h:ive Known thit if he ever got married at all, li w?.uld i?e done up in the true Rollir.s style, and for his part, he can't see any particular impropriety in our owning ill# soft impeach noul lottery <*'? Mr. ti dlins's earliest conveni ence Besides, girls ! it is rather a pleasant reflection that Mr Rollins slights none of us. and after the lucky one is married and set tled, the three remaining in single biased Less will have that blessedness augmented in Luis late trophy to our wu^i-g charms ." The ladies went oS in fresh cacbiunations *t Miss Aziilia a playful oration; but it was plain to Bee that they were beginning to wa ver ; to think more seriously of the matter, md before they parted, ;? was?" Well after ill, no one is to kuuw anything about it but mrselres?i* pa vwnsents?and if ma aon ient;?ted. J.u short, such is the tendency imong the fan sex for lotteries and matrimony, '.hat Mr Rollins carried his point It was a cold but pleasant evening in the beginning of December, that our four heroines niti their lover were assembled in the cosy back parlor at Dr. Anodyne's. The ladies lookea somewhat excited, but the worthy Rollins was as comfortable and self-possessed as a duck in a mill pond; he teemed to regard tho approaching traasajtiun as in no degree mire but as r^guiar and business like, and us just oaiy method left, wnereov a gentle [nan with a capacious heart could be extrioa led from a dilemma. " Be satisfied, ladies!'' lie encouragingly said, "the result will be right! I love you all but my snpreme affec tion will be centered on the prize I draw, for ihe will of jouise soon bee juio my lawful and weidad spouse! And 1 would n ow say. Lr myself and in the name of my dear wife, who ever she may be, that our friendship mu-t be permanent and unbroken." At this, the ladies in a flutter of amiable oontusion simpered a little ; but just then the heavy tread of Doctor Anodyne was heard, aud their hearts went pit a-p t a little The doctor entered into the spirit of the oocasion, and with the most 1 jdi ? rous but becoming gravity put twenty tickets n a box Kach lady had her name on Ate of .hese, and the doctor said that he should take sleven out singly, shaking the box alter each ,im? a ticket was drawn, and the lady having he largest number of the residue must, aa tording to the stipulation, step up to the Bisu >p s office with Mr. Rollins and settle. In the first drawing of the eleven tickets, H si Rachel Pettigrew and M ss AUeibury iad a majority of tiokots, but also an equii lumber of them, and so there was a necessity or another attempt. In the second series of Irawings, what a fluttering of hearts there vas wh.n the eleven tiakeu were ail taken rom the box As tho doctor deliberately ipened them, even Rollins betrayed some liaotiou, and a* it was announced that a choice iad been effected, and on the doctor's request ng all the parties to draw nigh the table, the eene was worthy tho pencil of a Cruikshanks. The result was : one lady, one tieket; two THE WEEKLY STAB to nrw.
