THE FATAL K 18 S . ?V B. F. &BILLA11FR. Serena Lovewell wu ou of the prettiest sUters that attended the 8ud?j class meeting of our church, as We called it at the boarding house, and was an object of admiration fnrai the devout and those who were not so hopeful pious among the outsiders Her antw waB the sweetest, and her singicg of the hymn was the divinest that could be conceived, and I always believed that her living charms did more towards keeping our church alive than all the material the preacher threw into hie aermons. It was a silent admiration, how ever, as the loudest never dared approach her shrined sanctity, deeming that she might van ish if ever spoken to by profane humanity. And so the summer wore away. Along toward the fall of the year it was observed that a young, thick headed member of the class, coarse and nncoath, was peculiarly and aggravatinglv sweet upon her?fixing her cricket for her to kneel upon, finding her place in her hymn-book, responding when she did, and going home with her at the cloee of meeting?which latter was considered by our side as being a direct interference with their rights. No one knew where she lived, though she had been seen in the vicinity of Summer street, and it was conjectured that her home was somewhere in that vicinity. About this time I wan in company with a party of young female friends, one of the best looking of whom?it was strange how my young farcy took to good>looking females ; I never could account for it on any other ground than that they were good looking?I went home with. We went on the rule that the farthest way round was the nearest way home, for she led me through streets that seemed to double upon each other in a most labyrinthine manner. Onoe we thought we had got lost, and went away back, and then we found wo had been right all the while, atd walked the street again. There were shadows on the path, and 1 must confess to the weakness of indulging in certain labial sacrifice* as we froui weariness rested beneath shadows that were thickest At the turn of every corner I found that the tendency of oar steps wa? toward Summer street, and pacing down a place that led fr?m that aristocratic thorough fare, as it then was, we arrived at a large stone building, and my fair companion in formed me that this was our destination, back ing tie remark by a vigorous jerk of the bel'. The summons was answered speedily, and, standing in the door with her hand shading the light that revealed her own features while it concealed those on the outside, was Serena Lovewell, the object of the dreams of our cir cle of worshippers 1 speedily accepted an invitation to call, and the next evening found me at the stone bouse, where I was most cordially received and introduced to the fair Serena, whom I fuund as sensible and kind as her appearance had indicated. She was a charming girl, with the most delightful fund of fun, and sparkled with refined and brilliant fancies, but she was only nursery maid! Our ac quaintance grew to a pleasant intimacy?a brotherly and Msteriy sentiment, such as boys and girls may indulge in with innocence ai.d delight, which no one but a person of impure fancy could imagine wrong?and without the least shadow of sin in our intercourse, the communion was intensely agreeable and pure ly Platonic. The lover made his weekly visit on Sunday night, which I magnanimously gave up to him, contenting myself with a majority of the other six. On one of these evenings I was making my call, and was seated in a little back slttl"g room enjoying a delightful tetc-a tete with my sweet sister, as I called her. She looked charmingly. It was in the warmest part of summer, and her low-necked dress revealed a roundness of beautiful shoulders that might have awakened the admiration of an anchor or an anchorite, and her bright eyes sparkled with excitement and pleasure. '? We ve had visitors this afternoon,"' said she, " a whole family of them from New York; and such a kissing time they made of it when they met with ours ! Twas enough to sicken one to see it. I don't see any propriety in women's kissing when they meet, do you!" I assured her that it seemed to me decidedly wrong; and deemed that kissing was a per formance that should be religiously observed by sexes jointly, and suggested experiments illustrating this, enforcing the suggestion with a practical demonstration One such prompt ed another, until a very pleasant pantomime had been gone through with, of the most harmless character, decidedly proving, to our own satisfaction, the soundness of cur opin ions How sweetly she did look as she sat there with the " blush on her cheek and the smile in her eye!" She was the most bewitching piece of Methodism I thought I had ever seen, and fu'ly understood Tom Moore where he sings? Had 1 fruch a tweet little saint oi my own, Ac., deemed by those not versed in Platonics as I slightly frcelovical in ita scope. Fate owed us a particular spite, and that evening determined on liquidating the debt. We sat sipping the nectar cf enjoyment from a loving cup, more appropriately named than Mr. Peabody's, ignorant of the storm that was culminating and ready to break up ?n our heads. Why was that lover of Serena's walking the streets at that particular moment? What spirit of love or mischief prompted him to pass by the house in which she lived? Why had villainous scavengers allowed the pile of rub bish to accumulate by th* wall over against the window ? How could he, so dull usually, have thought by getting upon that rubbish he could command a view of the room in which Serena sat ? These questions are easier asked than answered. The fact is all I have to do with, without going into argument. Thus we sat, Serena and I, and parted at ten o'clock, with a kiss for friendship's sake, and hearts as innocent of any thing harmoni ous, as Mrs Partington would say, (* as the babe unborn " I slept that night dreaming of a flower gar den of tulips, that took strangely the form of Serena's lips, and I was transformed into a big bee, and whiized around among them with a delighted wiDg, while the lover of Se rena, changed into an immense owl, sat upon the limb of an adjacent tree and looked stu pidly on the scene. What business had he thero at such a time ? The next evening, for the third time during the week, I called upon Serena. I found her in tears, and it immediately suggested itself to me, that in all the love tales I had read tears were kissed from the cheek, and I ap plied this remedy with a success that soon re stored my fair sister to a condition to make an explanation of her grief, whioh lay in offend ed pride She reoovered too soon, I thought, and hoped she would cry again, but she didn't In fact, she laughed as the placed in my hands the following epistle, which I have faithfully preserved : ??

Labrabxb ; "False girl agew," said.I, "what does that mean?" Serena told me that it was Thomas' way of < spelling adieu, and he was no great shakes at i spelling. She leaned her head on my shoulder, and I thought she was going to cry again, but ( when she looted ?Pi kfr wwe beaming i with ton. || , -Ai-oe Cii Vs a J " lied hair," said she, running her fingers through my lockfr - Tney in auburn," mM I, ?

" They're auburn." ?aid l, waxing wura ; end before she had a ehasee to rapMt the red, I stopped her mouth ao effectually tha% she couldn't speak it . Thomas had come round that evening, and thought he would take a la* look at Serene, from the top of the pile of dirt, expecting to find her plunged in sorrow. He arrived at precisely the stage when the last " red' was suppressed, and a fearful oath, from a Metho dist, tumbled on his tongue, wkieh ba was prevented from uttering by a treacherous brick that gave way under his feet and brought him, with a loud noiee, to the ground. IwAi led to the detection, and as he saw u> looking at him through the wiodow, be came in, hit face aa white as a sheet. I 'Look here." said he to me, "you inter loafer, you, aint you ashamed of youreelf. you rile seducer aud catamount, to come into a family like a boa-constructor, and take away my girl ? And ain't you ashamed of youreelf, sister Serena, to let him kiss you, when I neve dared to in my life ?" " Hence, bad man !a" cried I. with a semi frantic flourish, " leave the abode of inno cence, or. by St. Paul, I'll strike thee to my feet, and spnrn upon you, beggar, for thy boldness. Away, nor let thy greasy form of fend our ohastened gate sgain '" " Really, I," said he, backing toward! the door. '? Henoe. direful eobbler!" cried I, " and to infuriate winds bellow the story of thy lore. Bah!" lie disappeared through the door, and 1 saw Dim not again. as John Bunyan writes. Serena laughed prodigiously. As soon aa he was gone, my first impulse was to propose to take ibe place of the departed, as a lover; my see* iw<i impulse was to do no such thing , and I didn't ibe lover was a revengeful man He report ed Serena's conduct at church meeting, whieh was discussed, and a committee, eompoeed of the elder members of the eburoh, appointed to wait upon her and talk with her, which they did She protected that she was guilty of nothing; for which she was suspended for a year. berena never married, and whenever we meet we talk over the events of that tima, though they lost ber a stupid husband She lives in single blessedness and laughs as heart ily as ever.

But naoet of the historical bouses are masked or lost in the modern uses to which trade or ebarity has converted them. A multitude of town pal aces contain inestimable galleries of art. In the country, the site of private estates is impressive.

The Marquis of Breadal bane riJes out of his own house a hundred miles in a straight line to the sea, on his own property. The Duke of Sutherland owns the oounty of Sutherland, stretching across from sea to sea. The Duke of Devonshire, besides bis other estates, owns V6 000 acres in the county of Derby. The Duke of Richmond has 40,000 acres at Goodwood and 300 000 at Gor don Castle The Duke of Norfolk's park in Sussex is fifteen miles in circuit. An agricul turalist bought lately the island of Lewis, in Hebrides, containing iOO 000 acres. The pos sessions of the Barl of Lonsdale gave him eight teats in Parliament. This is the Hep tarchy again, and before the reform of 1832, one hundred and fifty-four persons sent three hundred and seven members to Parliament. The borough mongers govern England. The Wrong Legs A gentleman of this city, who has the bad fortune to be troubled with rheumatism in the legs, and the good fortune to have an excel lent wife, who ia ever prompt in applying the usual remedies to arrest the vexatious pains of this treacherous complaint, went home one evening last week, suffering greatly from his old "misery." H;s sealous wife immediately rushed to the sideboard, and taking out the bottle of what she supposed to be Dalley'a Pain Extractor, proceeded to rub the afflicted husband's legs eni feet with the magical elixir. With a grateful smile the affectionate husband signified bis great relief remarking, also, that a good wife was really an inestima ble blessing. "And, by the by, my dear continued the affectionate spouse. 441 see you have been varnishing the legs of this old fur niture ; they have needed it for a long time 14 What put that into your bead," asked tha good wife. , . . ?4 Why can't I smell; I must certainly have ? bad oold if I could escape that rather atrong odor of copal varnish which pervades tha ?? You are mistaken; I have'nt opened tha varnish bottle to-day " At this the husband, happening to cast bia eyes down to his kneeling wife, who was atill rubbing his caural extermitios, was astonished and horrified at the spoctaole they presented They were of a beautiful mahogany color, so brightly polished that he could see his own start'ed countenance as distinctly in them as in a looking glass. Seising the bottle of mag ical elixir, what was his horror to discover that it was labled 4' copal varnish !" This explained the odor, and established an important fact in medical practice, that :h* best cure for rheumatism ia a thick coating of oopal varnish We had heard the same rem edy employed in cases of oholera, to arrest pespiration, but this is the first case we have eve*- known of its being found as restoring the damaged legs of men as those oi tables and sideboards ?Cin- Enq**rtr.
