THE E.1D OF A WOMAN'S ( APRKE8. A L*rf Story. Men are never so awkward, never so ungraceful, never so disagreeable as when tbej are making love. A friend is a luxury, a husband ditto, I suppose, but that intermittent cla^s of human beings denominated lovers are terrible bore* It does very well for women to blush and look flustered now and then when occasion makes it desirable; but to see a man with hi.- face a.- red as a ripe cherry, and a real pNrcel of strong-mindedness, self-reliance, and ma.?culine dignity, done np in broadcloth and starched linen, quaking from the top of his shirt collar, hi* mouth awry, and his tongue ? ' ? ixicv^u iuiu nioTuisiiinf, in me vain attempt to say something sweet?0 gracious !" So said saucy Sophie Lynn aloud to herself, a.-she sat swinging backwards and forwards before the window, half buried in the cushions at luxuriant arm-chair, and playing with a delicate ivory fan which lay upon her lap. i It also seems so strange, not to say tireI ?<>uie," she continued. with a running.musical laugh, "after one has waltzed and sung.quoted poetry and talked nonsense with anybody till <>ne is puzzled to know which one of the two is most heartless, one's self or one's companion, to hear him come down plump on the subject of matrimony, as though that was the legitimate result of every such insipid acquaintance' For my part I never had a lover (here Sophie fluttered her fan and looked pleased, for she bad more than one) that I wasn't sick of after he proposed There ?u Captain Morris?I thought him the handsomest man in the whole circle of my acquaintance, until he went on I w ? m * B ' ~ ' ni? Knees 10 me, and swore ho should die if I didn't take pity on him. Somehow he always looked like a fright to me afterwards. Then there wm Dr.Wilkins?he was really agreeable and people said very learned. I was delighted with him for a time, but he spoiled it all with that offer of his?what loagwinded adjectives ! and how the poor fellow blushed, puffed, and perspired! lie called mean 'adorable creature,' and hiccoughed in the middle of'adorable.' Horrors' I have hated him ever since. Then there was a " Here Sophie started She heard the doorbell ring With a nervous spring she stood before the mirror, smoothing down her brown hair with a taste truly comical. " It won't do to seem interested," she said, as she took a finishing survey of her person in the glass, and shook out. with her plump jew eiea lingers, tne folds of her airy muslin dresf. The moment afterwards, when a servant entered to announce Mr. Ilarry Ainslee, she was back to her old seat by the window, rocking and playing with her fan. apparently as unconcerned and listless as though that name had not sent a quicker thrill to her heart, or the betraying crimson all over her pretty face "Tell him I will be down presently,'" she said. The girl disappeared, and Sophie flung open the window, that the cool, fresh air might fan away the extra posinesa from her complexion. Then she went again to the mirror, and after composing her bright, eager, happy face into an expression of demurene;<s. descended to the parlor. A smile broke over the features, and she reached out both hands to the guest; but, as if suddenly recollecting herself^ she drew them back again, and with a formal bow of recognition. she passed him and seated herself in a further corner of the room. It was very evident that something was ___c u:-. ~i??i- * * rrvug who LTupDin, losi ?ne D&ct innde up npr mind either not to be pleaded, or not to please. Could it be that she had foreseen what was coming * that a presentment of that visit and its result had dictated the merry speeches in her chamber ' Be that a.s it may, a half hour hal not elapsed before Harry Ainslee's hand and fortune, (though the latter, by the way, was notaing wonderful,) *vere in the same place where Capt. Morris' and Dr. Wilkins' had been before them. The first man that I ever heard say such things without making a fool of himself.'' mut tered Sophie, emphatically. from behind her fan. as she sat blushing and evidently gratified, yet without deigning any reply to the gallant, straightforward speech in which her lover had risked his all of hope. lie < ught to do pennance for the pretty way he mantles his tongue. He's altogether t o calm to suit me."' And Sophie rhook her rurly head meaningly, holding her fan before her for a screen. Did she forget what she had been saying ' I wonder if 1 could snore the way old uncle Jone* used to in church ?" she soliloquised. " Wouldn't it be fun?and wouldn't it plague Harry if he thought I hid been asleep while he was talkincr V ~ o S>phie's blue eyes danced with suppressed merriment a* she gave two or three heavy breathings, and followed them up with a nasal explosion worthy of an orthodox deacon It was well done?and theatrically done?and po< r Harry sprang bolt upright, surprised, mortified, chagrined Human nature oould stand it no longer, and Sophie gave ven to her mirth in a burst of triumphant laughter. V-o-u little witch ? you mischief?you spirit of evil ;'' exclaimed the reviled Harry he spang to her side and caught her by the arm with a grip that made her scream, " you deserve a shaking for your behavior !" Then lowering his voice, he added gravely : Will you never have done tormsntin? ' If you love we can 70a not be generous enough to tell me so; and if you do not, am I not at f least worthy of a candid refusal ?" Words sprang to Sophie's lips that would hive done credit to her womanly nature, for the whole depths of her being were stirred and drawn towards him as they never before . Lad been toward* any roan. liut she could not quite give up her railery then She would go one step further from him ere she laid her hand in his and told him he was dearer than all the world beside. So ehe checked the tender response that trembled ou her tongue, and flinging off bis grasp, with a mocking gesture and a ringing laugh, danced across the room to the piano. >he seated herself, she ran her fingers gracefatly over the key*, and broke out in a wild, brilliant defiant song that made her listener s ears tingle as he stood watching her, and choking oack the indignant words that came crowding to his lips for utturance ' Sophie, listen to me!" he said at length as he paused from sneer exhaustion. " Is it generous?is it jus', to trifle with me so?to turn into ridicule the emotion of a heart that cffers to you the most reverent affections ? I have loved you because beneath this volatile surface character of yours. I thought I saw truthfulness and simplicity, purity of soul and a warm current of tender, womanly feeling!1, that would bathe with blessings the whole life of bim whose hand was so fortunate a' to tou'-h its secret springs You are an heiress, and I only a poor student; but if that ii? the reason why you treat me so scornfully, you are less the noble woman than I thought you.'" Sophie's head was averted, and a suspicious mouture glistened in her eyes as Harry ceas?d speaking. Ah ! why is it that we sometimes hold our highest happiness so lightly?carry : a - T i? ?- ? *- - * * ' lDg ii c?r?iQHsij in our annas, as inougn u were but drou, staking it all upon an idle caprice7 When she turned her countenance towards hiia again, the Mine mocking light wu in her eyes, the tame coquettish smile breathed from her red lipa. "Speaking of heiresses, "said Sophie, "there is Hel len Mjrtle, whoae father is worth twice as much aa mine Perhaps you had better transfer your attention to h ir, Mr Ainslee The difference in oar dowerie< would no doubt b? quite an inducement, r? d possibly she might consider your caaa mor e seriously than I haye done." Lik? an inraltad prince, Harry Ainslee stood up her?the hot, fiery, indignant blood dashed in a fierce current over his ftce?hia arms eroded tightly upon his hreast as if to k??p bis heart from bunting with uprising indignation, hi* lip* compressed, and his aark *y? flashing fe^e, cruel Sophia! You I trespassed upon his forbearance one little step farther than you would have dared, had jou known his proud and sensitive nature. Not till he had gone?gone without a single word of expostulation, leaving only a grave good-bye, and the memory of his pale face to plead for him?did the thoughtless girl wake to a realization of what she had done. Then a quick, terrible fear shot through her heart, and she would have given every curl on her brown head to have had him beside her one short moment longer. ' Pshaw! what am I afraid #f' He will be back again in twenty-four hours, and as importunate as ever," she muttered to herself, as the street door closed after him ; yet a sigh that was half a sob, followed the words, and could Harrv have seen the beautiful nair of eyes that watched him so eagerly a* he went down the long street, or the bright tace thai leaned way out through the parted blinds witL such * wistful look as he disappeared, it might have been his tarn to triumph. In spite of Sophie's prophecy, twenty-four hour# did not bring back Harry. Days matured into weeks, and still he did not come, nor in all that time did she see him. And now she began to think herself quite a martyr, and acted accordingly In fact, she did as almost any heroine would have done under the circumstances?grew pale and interesting Mariana began to suggest delicacies to tempt Sophie's palate. "The poor dear child was getting so thin '' In vain Sophie pretested that she had no appetite. t - - - id vmn papa ooug&t dainty gift* and piled up costly dresses before his pet A faint smile or abstracted ''thank you" was hid only recompense. If sister Kate suggested that Harry'a absence was in any way connected with her altered demeanor. Sophie would toss her ringleted head with an air of supreme indifference, and go away and cry over it, hours at a time. Everybody thought something was the matter with Sophie. Sophie among tne rest. Her suspense and penitence became insupportable at last. Sister Kate, who had come so near the solution of the mystery, should know all?so said Snnhi? -u- -?,J - g, ? M. VI uapa OUC UUUIU I advise her what to do, for to give Harry up forever seemed every day more and more of an impossibility. ' Will you come into the garden with me, Kate?" she asked, in a trembling voice, of her sister one day, about a month after her trouble with Harry: -'I have something of importance to tell you." ' Go away darling, and I will be with you in a few moments," replied Kate, casting a searching glance at Sophie's flushed cheek and swollen eyes. Running swiftly along the garden paths, as if from fear of pursuit, Sophie turned aside into her fuvorite arbor, and. flinging herself down on a low seat, buried her head among the cool vines, and gave herself up to paroxysm of passionate grief. Soon she heard one approaching, ana an arm was twined tenderly about her wni?f onH 1.--J i-sj - mivi ? naitu uanu W ft? IfliU caressingly on her drooped head. "0. Kate, Kate!" she cried in the agony of her repentance, "I am perfectly wretched?you don't know why, though you have coine very near guessing two or three times. Harry and I ? Here a convulsive, sob interrupted her, and the hand upon her head passed over her disordered curls with a gentle soothiDg motion. ' Hurry and I ?another ?ob?quarreled two or three weeks ago. I was willful and rude, just as it was natural for me to be, and he got angry. I don't think he is going to forgive, for he hasn't been here since." Sophie felt herself drawn in a closer embrace, and was sure Kate pitied her. 4'I would not have owned it t<? anybody if it had not been iust as it is." ahe cimtiniieH mK bing her little white hands into her eyes; "but I think I love him almost as I do you and father and mother." A kiss dropped on Sophie's glossy head, and tighter was she held. She wondered that Kate wi?s so silent, but still kept her face hidden in the Tines. "He asked me to be his wife," she continued, ' asked me as nobody else ever did?in sucb a manly way that he made me feel as though I ought to have been the one to plead instead of him. I could not bear that, and It answered him as I should not. lie thought it was because he was poor and I was rich; and all the time I was thiuking I would rather live in a cottage with him than in the grandest in the world with any other man, only I was too proud to tell him so to his face What can I do? Tell me, Kate, you are much better than I am. and you never get into trouble. I am sure I shall die if YOU don't."' And rxmr Snntiio -- - "I MM "Look up dear, and I'll tell you.'' Sophie did look up with a start, and the next moment, with a little scream, leaped into the arms?not of sister Kate, but of Harry Ainslee. | Sophie declares to this day that she ha.-: never forgiven either of them, though she has been Mrs. Ainslee two years. ii | The Bcrsinq of the Steamer Bex Lewis i os the Mississippi River ?A Fafstnger's State ment.?Mr. H. H. Harrison, of Lexington, Missouri, took pasaage on the lien Lewis at Memphis for St Louis. He says: About one o'clock on Monday morning, shortly after backing out from Cairo and sailing around a sand bar, I bad stepped out on the boiler rlwir and had gone upon the steps leading to the lower deck, when suddenly I was brought to a pauw by a loud report as If a cannon had been tired off liigh and under me. the dead silence and the darkness of the surrounding scene making the thing far more startling. Tiut I had no time to think nor ability to act, for 1 felt myself whirled helplessly up into the air, and then 1 knew the boat baa exploded her boiler or her boilers. I fell near to where 1 bad been standing, and 1 saw that all the boat seemed to be a broken and tumbling man, for a part of the woodwork of the cabin, the chimneys, and the heavy bell came in a confused mass, falling right over ir.e, but luckily some beams or sticks lay right athwart me, keep lug me from being killed However, as it was, I got so pressed that I could hardly draw a breath. After a little while I worked myself out, and heard continued cries of " Oh, God!" 4,Oh, God uttered in such an agonizing tone that I 1J A 1- -1 _ V- - * A' ' ? ? * ^ bjuiu nut ucii> tfiiijj auecifa dv (qe invocation!. 1 thought that these cries were from the firemen. When I got out.and could look about, what wai once the cabin seemed to be now down to tbe lttvel of the boilers In a few moments a body of flame rolled over tbe larboard side, extended and enwrapped tbe wbeelbouse, and tben that fell in. Some deck bauds then came and helped me to thrust three stage planks over tbe side, and we tied the ends of them to the guard of the boat. I saw nobody but the first clerk of the boat. Mr Marshall, coming out of the cabin; be was scalded aud In a t>ad plight. He lumped overboard to escape tbe heat, got hold of one of the stages, and h Id on until taken ottby askiff The skiff played around cautiously for some time, and tben came up and took off Marshall, myself, and several deck hands. I was told, but don't know how true it is, that this gentleman bad two daughters on hoard, who wpk Inst Mw rutrtnwr tnM h? saw them standing on the boat frantically screaming, join bands, and jump overboard The lota of life ia variously stated by different p< rsons. some of tbem placing it at quite a high figure, but the latest accounts from Cairo state it at twenty killed and misalng, and about as many more wounded, some of whom cannot survive Amongst the font is Cap Holmes .Sanson, who w.<? In command of the unfortunate steamer Some fifty or sixty were saved. The wounded were taken to Cairo, where they were humanely provided for. A Catholic Pkikst Bii.it to Death.?The Rev. Dr. Patrick McMenomv, a well known Catholic clergyman in New York City, was accidently burned to death In hi* chamber on Sunday last.
