Buggy s>*t#. carriage top*. crockery crates?all are in qawtion. And I even saw one of the finest hordes in the city drawing a hogshead on wooden runners. in which were seated a gentleman and lady. They were a fine looking couple, and bore off the palm of fast driving, a* well as the most ludicrous sleigh conveyance ' ?Let ter f rom CMeago. lia. reador' and thereby hang* a tale, It waa a New Year's day in that far famed city of the West?even tho New Yoars s day of 1^7. Sinee Christmas, winter had set in in good Old fashioned earnestness. Snow had fallen to the depth of several inchoa. and being firm and bard. m id*-* excellent sleighing?a rare thing in the aity. Indent our winters Jwm sadly degenerated of late, being mach more mild and froe from snow. than in the days of our fathors: perhaps to accommodate them to our failing health and strength; for this latter fact is but too apparent. Yet this New Year's day seemed more a type <?f tho old thne. It wnecold. yet not too cold, and the sleighing was excellent. Evcryl>ody that had a suitable conveyance, or could cot one. even at any price, was out cnioying the rare sport; only the more keenly to no enjoyed for its rarity It was indeed a gala day; bright and beautitul over head, brighter and more beautiful still in the human hearts beating 00 joyously beneath" Ernest Hamm>nd?at in his counting room, busily engage*! in attending to the reception of a largo quantity of goods, just arrived. He w?* young yet, but fast rising in wealth and j'osition. Born in the Ewt. had brought with nira all the habits ofstrict attention to business which there generated. While there was aught of that to claim his attention, pleasure must be wnived. Therefore, when he did give himself up to its enjoyment, it was with a double ?cal. Naturally warm-hearted and impulsive, and social withal, as such persons must* be. he keenly enjoyed society. And when he entered it. he was ever a welcome companion, both with his own and the opposite sex. And now closing his books with a look of satisfaction and relief; he determined to give himself up to tho pleas ures of this annual gala day. While business was pending he had closed f his ears and eyes to ail else, but now he could ! not fail to heir the unnsual stir in the street*, and feel that while he had been engaged within il<>?rs. all had been life and commotion without. When he came forth the streets presented a . in sit novel scene. A more motley, incongruous i lot of vehicles it were not ea^y to imagine, i Such life and hilarity are always infectious, and ; Ernest a?>on caught the spirit. Ho, too, would 1 join the sledgers; but how? ne inquired at several stables for a sleigh, i Not one to be had. Yet he wa4 not eamly j daunted, and. moreover, had an unusual share i of perseverance. He owned one of the finest j horave in the city; of that he was sure. He re membered. too, that in a remote part of the sta- ! ble, where ho had usually kept him. ho had i one <lay noticed a pair of wooden runners He would see if in some way a conveyance could not be planned. His Yankee ing-nuity must be brought to the service. He ?oon reached the stable. The runners w.-re fousd. and in good order. But now for the ? other part. A hogshead that had for some rca- i s??n or other been sawed apart and nicely clean- \ ed. stoid before him Instantly a part of it wa* upon the runners. In a few minutes a com- j fort able scat was added, and he wai ready for i a drive. 1 But now arose another difficulty, unthought 1 of before He must have a companion?a lady ! of course; else half the enjoyme nt would be ' lost. Bat who would it be? Who w?uld be I seen, even with him. in such a conveyance as that. Excuse his vanity, reader. He knew he was a favorite. Indeed, he could not help j knowing it. But this was a special occasion. I " All the world"' was out. Who could he find brave enough to dare i ? He must see. ? There were two or three young l.idies who | b>ng claimed his special regard, add he felt j *urc he was not entirely indifferent to them. He had even been observing them of late, stri- j vmg to learn the true character of each. This | he iound. as gentleman and ladies usually meet I in city life, a difficnlt matter. How he yearned i to see through the fa'so surroundings into the J true and inner life beneath! Ho was rather old- 1 fashioned in his notions, it must be confessed; but he did care more for the real than for the arti- ! ftcial?more for the mind and heart than for outer adorning But how would it end? Would he be wi^r than his sex' It was indeed a difficult question, but he did not quite despair. Ella Campbell had long been one of the first in his esteem. But recently he had thought her vain and superficial, caring more for the outer than the inner man. and had been cau- i tions in his attentions to her. He would test' her now. driving briskly to the door and throwing the reins over bis horse, he quickly rang the bell. } A servant at once ushered him into tho parlor, ! where sat the lady of his thoughts. She greet- 1 ed him warai^v; but on hearing tho object of | his visit and the uniqueconv.*yance he brought, she plead a prerion* engage uuiU, and at once excused herself. Ernest Hamiaond was gifted with a good share of penetration, and wnen not previously 1 blinded, read character well. Now, instinc- i tively feeling how it was. ho politely withdrew. And while he rode gaily awny. Ella Cambell sat pouting in her room, unthought of and un eared for by the moving mass without. Ernest's next visit was to the home of Squire Reed- Here he had long been a frequent and welcome visitor, and wa* quite "like one of; fimily" a* the'."squire often said, looking know ingly at his two girls Charlotte and Bella. Charlotte was the older and handsomer ef the two; and beauty is always attractive, cs- j (tecially with the men. She was the favorite, too, in society. But at times Ernest had turn- j e l from her to the gentle, graceful Bella, with her pure hc.irt, piquant, and innocent ways, almoat with a feeling of love for the latter. Her'* waa indeed a character tostudy. Timid and retiring when in the presence of stran ger*. she was yet singularity artless and confi- j ding to thoee she best knew. There was a dash of independence, too, and n vein of romance in her heart, pleasant and refreshing to meet. She was graceful and I pliant, it was true, but there was a character i and strength there also. Though her sister might best please in a crowd, she would be bet ter lovad at home. All that Ernest felt; still, beauty fascinated him. Not that Bella wa* ugly Oh, no!? , But she was not beautiful, either; at least, save in the loving eye* and heart* of those who best knew her. Ernest liked them both. It was diftcult indeed to determine which was tho fa vorite. As he neared the door he said within him- . self. as one <?ften will, in case of doubt?" A look or word shall decide between them. If one or both refuse to ride with me, it shall be a sign that all is over. But if one accepts? why then who knows what may come of it! I am twenty-eight now; "old enough." as my oartaer told iae yesterday, to be married and nave a home of my own." and so I am. We shall see?we shall see"* Two faces were at the window as he drove np. One brightened visibly, and the other a* \isfbly pale.]; while a mingled expression of scorn and disappointment passed over her fea ture*. " Good morning, ladies!1' he exclaimed a# he entered their presence. 44 I find myself ia rsther an awkward position just now, and need *>ine one to help me out. I must have a drive this morning, yet I have been unable to obtain any conveyance save the one you saw as I drove up. What shall I do?'' and he looked to Char lotte for an answer _ ,l An awkward position, Indeed!" answered aiie. ?? j?u had better drive alone." _ ' Bat must I?" he asked aomewhat torrow fally. Bella looked op qotokly; but she did not lyiik* " Snrlcy vou do not think a lady would be wen in such a conveyance'" continued Char lotte, with a slight tow of her beautiful head. Again Bella looked up, while a painful flush suffused hor cheek. She was sorry her sister had thus spoken?sorry for her. grieved for Er nest. She felt sure she could not hare denied him?that whatever he should aak would not be improper or wrong. How then oould her sister speak thus? ( harlotte noticed the expression, and half read it* meaning. She did not like the reproof that it conveyed; and turning to her she said somewhat scornfully: WU&lXlS'' woul'1 80 with J00 i 1 ^ Jon Bella ' ' the young man repeated earnestly, ad he bent her aglanoo which thrilled through every part of her being. i or a moment the blood rushed over her brow and neck, the next it rcceded, and ?he an swered gaily: '? And why not, indeed ?" " But will you go. Bella?" again asked Er nest, in that straight-forward manner which every way characterised him. I should like it of all things!" answered the enthusiastic girl forgetting the emotion of the moment before. "Bat remember how wo aro to go," csn tinucd Ernest quickly. wi" be tho observed of all observers," added Charlotte. '?And what of that?" ealled back the de lighted girl, as -he was half way up the stairs. In a moment she was ready; and gaily bid ding her sister good bye, she was soon seated beside Ernest, and they drove rapidly awav. Charlotte half repented her momentary pride when she saw tho tender glance of Ernest as he plnced her carefully upon the scat, and drew closer the folds of her large, warm shawl, in winch she had shown the good sense to wrap herself. But it was too late now ; so taking a book she prepared to spend the morning alone In the meintime Ernest and Bella had joined the motley throng now moving so rapidly through the city. Now they drove down close to the water's edge, where, far as the eye oould reach, one saw nothing but the clear blue Waters of the lake, with its masts and sails, making one think he were upon the Atlantic coast, instead of so many miles in the interior. Anon they looked unon the wide spreading prairie now pure and white with the new fallen snow, and stretching far away till it wan lost where earth and sky seemed to meet. Then again they were pass ing through the wide and level street* of the city. Oh ! there is life and exhilaration in giving up one's self U> the enjoyment of the hour : : Mature is a good mother to us all; and when 1 we give ourselves into her keeping, she will I ever fill tho heart wi Mi joy and gladness. Would that more such exorcises?more such out-of- ' door exercise* prore freely enjoyed by all! This shutting oneV self up so completely within doors, as some do in wintor, is enough to drive all the roses from the cheek, all jjoy and glad ness from the eye. and all freshness from tho heart, making one old before his time. The spell ot the hour was then upon them ; and as they sped merrily along Ernest felt his heart warm more and more toward the pure and artless girl by his side. lie had known her 'on??he had known her well; and she had ever seemed the same?ingenious, truthful and good. He wondered how. even for a moment, he had ever thought of another ; for she scorned to him, then, all that his heart could ever wish or de sire.^ But could she ever be his ? or was she destined for another ' The thought made him aesperate He oould not endure it for a mo ment. The question must be decided at once, and with him to resolve was to act. They had been talking gaily of the scene around them?or Bella had been talking, he listening, for amid the multitude of vehicles in tho street each had to attend pretty carefully to his own; when turning to her with another 1 of those glances which thrilled through every j fibre of her being, he said, and his voice was low and earnest as he spoke : ?? Bella, I am a business man, and shall do up thiags in a business fashion. I lore you. Will you be my wife ?" The young girl looked up astonished. She had long liked him?liked him better than any other on earth; but sho never dreamed of being hit wife. He was so much older, do much wiser than she?for she was scarce eighteon. and in heart a very child?why did he not take her sister? She could not comprehend it all, and almost doubted if she heard aright. For many moments dhe did not reply. Ernest observed her closely, and read in her face the unuttered thought. She wa^ about to speak, when, struck with the whole ludicrousness, she laughed outright. It ku his turn now to look astonished. "Why Bella, what's the matter ?" he soon asked, somewhat hurt. ?* Only think !^ m iking Iovo in a hogshead !" laughed the mischievoas girl, more merrily than before: "whoever heard of such a th'ng And this time Ernest joined her, aycu at?his own ex]>euse. ?? Well, well, no matter where," continued he. taking the little hand that lay for a mo ment outside her shawl. "Do you love me, Bella ? and will you be iny wife ? Answer mo trulv?will you be mi lit ? ' ?? lea, Eruost, yes; but I must laugh, never theless. The scone is so entirely ludicrous? quite a new order of romance!" And again her laugh rang out, loud and clear as tho song of a bird. Aud this time Ernest joined in it as heartily as she. lie could well laugh now ; for had she not promised to be his' >o matter whtre tho promise had beon made no matter how; she was his?all hi* ! And as he pressed her hand at parting, he said : " Lautth, now, as much as you like ; but to night 1 shall coino to appoint the wedding day and arrange for it* ccrcinoniu. So good morn ing. dearest." a And in a moment he was gone. That night all was urranged?'Squlro Rcod and his wife giving a full and free consent? and in just six weeks from that time Bella Reed became Mrs. Ernest Hammond. In the city of Manchester, N.
