[A pretty friend of otin once said, after "dllielW' month at West Point, that the road to hearen wa? paved with aruiy buttons.

Hazel lye*. BY RKX. I was in a delirtum of love. The dark hazel eyes and still darker hair inbdued me more than ever a frowning battle ment awed a forlorn hop* of fifty brave-hearted soldiers. I had faced murderous Indians on their own hunting ground*, their fiendish yells had aroused Lie from my midnight slumbers to action; I bad marched unflinchingly for ward, leading my men, while arrow* and bul lets fell like hail around me. All thi* I had met with comparative equanimity. and re turned to the metropolis of our nation only to ka an k.l .iswl Kv w<vm*n Yet Helen Sparrow was fair and benntiful as an Italian sky Conscious of her fascinations, she made no effort to entrap me; but I sailed as quietly into her net as the wild swan into the snare of the huntsman. There the simil? ends, for I fluttered not tha least bit, but yielded heart and aoul to bor bewitching in fluence " Army buttons" rre proverbially incons tant, and I was no exception to the general rule. On this occasion I was fairly caught in my own net, so carefully woven for Helen. My flirta:ion assumed a serious aspect?I loved her, yet I knew she mistrusted me. It was in the summer of 8 that the War De partment granted me a furlough of two months, and then it was I met her. But three waeks had passed, and I would have thrown np my commission had Helen even hinted thut t>uch a sacrifice would gratify her. At tbe expiration of that time. ft party. con sisting of Helen. Gertrude St. Clair, Captain Cara*?a former me^mate? the old folki *nd myself, was formed for a trip to Niagara. The old folks took care of themselves, the Captain bad charge of Gertie, and Helen fell under my especial protection. At Niagara, the International was filled to ita upmost capacity. North and South had Soured their fairest daughters into this c&ul ron of fashionable excitement, and handsome ?>ns had followed the wanderings of their fair inamoratas. Am>ngall, Helen?tome?was the fairest. VFitb her eye* I viewed the mighty t a L II ! * ? ? wtisui h 11 pucHou ueauiong 1010 me seeming abyss: when she *?? sad f was despondent; when the amiUd I was all vivacity. We walked rode, talked, laughed and wept together, until my lore amounted to frenxy, and uij frensy to Iliads e*a. But this atate of things could not last long, for I was even then a fit candidate for a lunatic asylum. I would hare given worlds, had they been mine, to recall the first week or ao of our acquaintance, when I had made a boist of my many flirtations and scoffed at the very exis tence of such a thing as pure and lasting love. I had ridiculed it, one evening, as a maudlin sentiment, and denounced it tbe next as the moonshine of juvenile precocity. For all which I was soon to reap my reward?and a bitter one it proved to be. It was a calm and beautiful night, such a one as i? designed esDeaiallv Tar lovpr4 H.ion ^ 1 "V " mod I had left the frivolous d*nce aod tflrolied iwiy, ostensibly to view the Full* by moon light We had reached tbe bank of tbe river, and seated ourselves on a convenient rock in sight of the tnighry cataract. Tne final week of oiy furlough was drawing to a close. We hsd been conversing about constancy, and though my *entiments were materially changed since our first acquaintance, I was afraid to betray my inconsistency by expressing them. My views of lovo were somewhat modified, and as that subject naturally followed the other, the spirit prompted me to try the virtue of ac tion. With a sudden impulse I foil upon my knees and poured into her attentive ears my tale of love. Half doublingly, but with becom ing gravity, she listened; occasionally, at some uuasual outburst of sentiment, a faint ami)* played over her face, but only for an instant. My vanity whi^pired that i; was the excess of joy that filled her. At length I reached the momentous question?the imaginary turning pjint in my existence. Ske placed her ton white band in mine, and while I kissed it en thusiastically, ejtculatiug in the interim. "Mine, mine forover!" wich the other she raised b?r handkerchief to her eyes and turned aside her head. as I supposed, to conceal the joyful tears which would naturally dim her vision. 1 did not learn, till several days sub* aequently, that it was simply to smother a laugn at iny ridiculous actions v I returned to the hotel jubilant, and in the extremity of happiness, llappy h^d it been for me had 1, by accident, fallen over the preci pice. for the diziy height from which 1 was about to b? tbro*n brought me in the end marm apkiw ?n<l vnwK A few days passed, and I received orders to report for duty at Fort Leavenworth as early as possible. I called on Helen in her private parlor. We were alone. The parting was very like ?U ?uch,whL*h have been described a thou sand times on paper, aud occurs at least once in the life of avery one. I renewed my vows and protestations, but she was submissively tranquil. The last farewell was spoken; a final kiss imprinted on her fair brow; I had my hand on the knob of the door, when she drew from her pocket a letter and gave it to me She bowed sweetly, and sorrowfully I returned to my own room With eager expectation I opened the letter, and here is a copy of it, word for word, as she penned it: "Niagara, September. 1859 II U< P ? 1 .

My repentance was thorough. I could not call back the dead to life, but 1 mourned her in doep and biUar contrition. On one of my excursions into California, I visited the grave of the lovely Spanish girl, and caused a hand some tablet to be planed to her memory. It was the last testimonial that could be bestow ed.

If I was, I spose I should holler veriffrusly in (he streets ?t nite and go heme to Bet?y Jane smelliu of coal ile and gin in the rnornin. I should go to the Poles arly. I sbuuld stay there all day. I should see to it that my n&bers was thar. I should git carriages to take the kripplea, tho infirm and the indignant thar. I should be on gard agin frauds and sich. I should be on the look out for the infnmus liee of the enemy, got up jea be4 elecsbun for per litical effeck. When all was over and my can didate elected, I should move heaven A arth? bo to speak?until 1 got orifice, which if I di ln't git a orifice should turn round A nbooze the Administration with all my mite and maine. But I'm not in the bisiniss I'm in afar more respectful bisiniss uor whot pollertica is. I wouldn't giro two cents to be a Congrcsser. The wu?j iiisult I cvrr received was when sertin citizens ef Buldinsvilla axed me to run fur the Legislater. Sez I, "My friends, dostest think i d stoop to that there?" They turned as white as a sheet. I spoke in my orfullest tones. A they knowed I wasn't to be trifled with. They slunked out of site to ouct. There 1, having no politics, I made bold to visit Old Abe at his huuistid in Springfield. I found the old feller in his parlor, surrounded by a perfeck swarm of orifice seekers. Knowing he had been canting of a flat boat on the roarin Mississippi, 1 thought I'd address him in sailor lingo, so sex I ' Old Abe, ahoy! Let out yer main-suls, reef hum the forecastle A throw yer i'ib-poop overboard. Shiver my timbers, my tarty. |N. B.?This is ginuine marine lan gwidge.

You hain't got a orifice I'd take under no circumstances, I'm A. Ward. Wax figgers is my perfeshun. I'm the father of Twins, and they look like tn*?botfi of ihtm.

Just at this pint of the conversation another swarm of orifice seekers a r rove A cum nilin intnthn n?rl?r Sum a>ant<w1 post orifices, sum wanted collectorshipj, sain warned furrin missions, and all wanted sum thin. I thought Old Abe would go orazj. lie hadn't more than had time to shake hands with 'em before another tremoniis crowd cum porein onto bis premises, ilis boose and dooryard whs now perfeckly over flowed with orifice seekers, all clamerns for a immejit interview with Old Abe. One man from Ohio, who had about seven inches of corn whisky into him, mistook mo fur Old Abe and addrcsc oie as The Pra-bay-rie Flower of the West!' Thirks I you want a offis putty bad. Another in:in with ? gold-headed cane and a red nose told Oid Abe he was a *3eckind Wash ington and the pride of the boundliss West!' " Sti I, " Square you wouldn't take a small Poat Otfis if >ould git it, would you ?" Sex he. a patrit is abuv them things, sir!" " There's a puity big crop of patrit* this reason. ain't there, square ?" sei l, when an other crowd of oflis-seeker* poured in. The house, door-yard, bam <k woodshed was now all full, and when another crowd cum I told 'em not to #o awav fur want of rnom ih? hog pen was still empty. Ono pitrit from a small towu in Misbygun want U|> on top the house, got into tke chimney, and slid down into the parlor where Old Abe was endereriu to keep the hungry pack of offis-seekeri from chawin him up alive without benefit of clergy. The miuit he reaohed the firo-place he jumpt up. bruiiht the soot out of his eyes, and yellea : " Dont make eny pintment at the Spunkrille postoffice till youv'e read my papers. All the respectful men in our town is signers to that there dockymint!" '-Good God!*' eried old Abe, "they cum upon me from the skize?down the chimneys, and from the bowels of the yearth !" He hadn't more n got them words out of his delikit mouth b?4 two fat offise seekers from Wisconsin, in endevorin to crawl atween his legs for the purpass of applyin for the tollgate ship at Mil wawki, upsot the President eTeck, k heewould hev gone sprawlin into the fire plase*if I hadn't caught him in these arms. But I hadn't more'n stood him up strate, before another man cum crashin down the chimney, his head strikin me vilentlr arin the inanls. and proatratin my rolaptcous form into the fljor.

' Bnt I workt hard for the ticket; I toiled night and day. The patrit should b? rewar ded!" " Virtoo." sed I, holdin' the Infatooated man by the coatcollar, virtoo, sir, is its own re ward. Look at me!" lie did look at mo, and qualed be4 my gase. "The fact is," I contin ued, lookin' round upon the hungry crowd, "there is scarcely a offiss for every ile lamp carrid round durin' this campane.
