WT C0RI5XB Lilia Goldlnz and Rebecca Crawford, two lixht-hearted school maid* as erar lored each other, wars what young girls call "intimate friends." That is, in all hoars of school recreation they wer^Seen walking arm in arm; absorbed in the most earnest and doubtless important conversation-. They exchanged many and mysterious glsnoes daring hoars of stndy, as if the Fates had entangled the web of their lives in one perplexing piece! They doted on the same teachers, read the same books, enjoyed together beautiful sunsets, were melancholy through presentiment of fotare sorrow, in the moonlight; and were even known to meet at sunrise, and in unison rhapsodise orer the glories of the rising luminary: Notwithstanding all this intimacy, these maidens were very dissimilar. They were unlike in appearance and temperament, and there wis also a difference in their surroundinert WAS Ana Af fira A an?W?A.a ?.-||W.

Lilia wis called an heiress, and being an only and orphan child, she waa caressed, pampered. and almost idoliied, by very indulgent grandparents. Her tastes were caprioioas, and she varied from grave to gay, as her fancies or impulses directed. Animated and humoroaa, or sad and sentimental, the very contrasts she presented, added to those golden charms she was known to possess, madeber a village belle. The simple and peaceful home of the pastor was her delight, and often she waa weloomed 4K*m m a)ia?ia)t*il ? * 41 v vuvt v? wo M vuvuouvu ^UOOI, auu LQO oopp/ recipient of its humble hospitalities. The minister's house! Fresh in my mind is its every apartment, and all its peculiarities. It waa a rambling, disconnected old mansion, having been built by one man, added to by another, and completed by a third; and so had no definite character, but realized a succession of idiosyncrasies. Yet the effect was rather captivating, than inoongruous. The dwelling certainly was not common-place, and had to be studied out, piece by piece, as it had originated It stood alone?ten graceful leoust trees shaded an ample front, and harmonized charmingly with the painted white and green of the exterior. This house was placed upon the banks of a lovely stream, and was environed by a carefully cultivated garden, whioh was arranged with some pretensions to eleganoe?for several terraces and flights of stone atepe, gradually led you on to the river's edge. In thalower garden space, very near the water, waa a grove of mulberry trees They were planted because Mrs. Crawford desired ta eul tivate the silkworm, and bad dona bo, with considerable success. Near this grove wu placed en arbor of wooden trellis-work, covered with the fragrant woodbine?happy retreat of bamming bird*! murmuring and aparkllng, u they flitted o'er their leafj shelter, and offered the incense of the flowers to Heaven?the little guardian spirit* of woodbine bowers! A pleasing spot wu the home so long occnpied by this good man, and his affectionate family. X have said that Lilia was a village belle? she had numerous admirers?young lawyers, doctors, students, and now and then, she attracted the homage of acme unfortunate wanderer, who remained too long for his own peace of heart, in this dangerous little town. Kebeooa too, was captivating, and eepcoially so, to one class of men, who are supposed to be be allured by intrinsic charms alone?to young ministers. Several of these gentlemen, who had, aooording to evangelical and established custom, been her father s guests (and not permitted to remain at the village inn) at different times, tarried^nnezpectedly to themselves. over to another Sabbath?and they preached the gospel with great sweetness and fervor, quite meltltog the susceptible hearts of various spinstera in the ot ngregation. Rebecca was tne primal souroe of this increase and depth of nnntion?quiet, demure, mischievous Rebecca! Modelled to outward seeming, into most admirable mechanism of movement and feeling, yet for all that, overflowing with most oonsumuate, frolicsome love of the grotesque, and the ridiculous. It was during a summer vacation that Lilia's grand parents permitted their darling to spend a week with her friend Rebeeoa. The welcome day which commenced this much enjoyed visit, alio brought u an inmate and visitor a young clergyman. Mr. Dumbarton waj just prepared for his mission, and wss about to take charge of a oongregaiion in Western Virginia. He was a tall, pale, slender, pious, intellectual looking youtn; and had an abstracted manner, as if detached from the things of this world, aod absorbed with themes of high and sacred import. Th? effect ef this "distrait" style of proceeding, was enrapturing_for the coquet nan. romantic scnooi gins. TH? very morning of hit arrival be prodaoed such an impression upon Lilia that she deolared to ReDeoca, and irith every appearance of distress, that sbe net onlj considered herself a remarkably unfortunate joung lady, but that she was, in very truth, a miserable, dejected being "Alas," sighed plaintive Lilia, "how ean I ever regard myself as aught bnt a frivolous creature, and quite unfit to occupy a serious thoaght of any man of sense. Here am I, at the advanced age of sixteen, the object of the nonsensical attentions ?f worldly men; who, aooording to your worthy father's doctrine, are mere worshippers of Mammon, when they offer ineense at my shrine.

With the most commendable spirit of resignation, and aa if yielding to a relentless bat inevitable fate, Lilia aoquiesces. Rebecca, having been quietly ignored by these two exalt?d spirits, is left alone, either to pray for her friend's success, or to plot a woman's revenge, as she may be disposed. Three days of uninterrupted walks and talks, gave the preacher aa opportunity of presenting many moral reflections, calculated greatly to edify Lilia. He was ?ententiousj| indeed sublime, yet, for all this, in order to make his moral maxims more salutary, he would occasionally allow himself a considerable latitude of sentimental compliment. These, at least, were carefully treasured? and falling upon good soil, took root?being perfectly appreciated by the wicked Lilia.

But it so happened that just about the time Lilia was entirely hopeful and sanguine with regard to her success, her presence was required at home, in consequence of the slight illness of her grandmother, who suffered an intolerable ennui in the absence of so beloved a child. Lilia was true and devoted to her grandparent*, and did not hesitate when she received the mes?age. Her filial love compelled her at once to return home. In leaving, she enjoined it upon Rebecca to take in charge the welfare of Mr. Dumbarton, and above all, to take good care that he ahould not forget her. And so it was, that when Mr. Dumbarton must inevitably have been conquered by Lilia's arts, they parted. #** #* Soon after this catastrophe, my heroine left her native town to visit an aunt. Separated from Rebecca, the ardor of their friendship seemed rather to strengthen than decrease. They wrote each other incessantly?the most fearfully minute letters, crossed and reorossed. nothingwas omftted, and much was amplified and commented on that might as well have remained obscure. Real Khool girls letters! I must laueh as I recall them. What flights of rhetoric what sublimity of incident! what intensification of feeling they depicted ' One morning Lilia did not receive the expected communication from Kebeoca, but how great and joyful was her agitation, when a letter was handed to her in an unknown cbirography?having a strange and cramped look, which was io itself a delightful perplexity. But oh, charm of charms, it is?it is an offer of marriage from the young parson. She had indeed, made the desired impression, and in pite of his triple armor of tormality, morality, and spirituality, behold him a lover! Sighing, complying, dying, quite like any ordinary mortal. "Delicious! prodigious! charming, alarming' truly, its most entrancing," sings Lilia, laughing and dancing. " But what says he ? 'My wife wilt thou be?' Again let me see. ana read it o'er and e'er; this letter I adore ! Not that I care to win his heart, nnt > nin Hn I ralue him. Yet, just to say no, to a young parson beau; and to find in black and white, that he holds me in such light?oh, it's the best of all my life, to be asked te be a clergyman's wife. Now, I'll say to Miss Hall, and to the old maids, one and all, don't you wish you oonld, like me, be wise and good, and be thought fit to preside, without the least pride, over a congregation of any denomination? This is a true apotheosis, a ravishing metamorphosis?I must read it to my aunt, this precious good man's oant; and to Rebeooa I must write, how I've become a goodly light. But what writes he-again let me see.'' And tbis is the letter : Miss Lilia: Profound and indelible (as successive months of separation only prove to me mere jlearly) is the impression produced upan me by your many charms of mind, heart, ana manner. Since we parted. I have been settled over a small congregation; and now find myself not only occupied, but immersed, in the diligent care of souls oommitted to my charge. Yet suoh is the lamentable weakness of human nature, even when devoting its highest energies to the most sacred calling, that I find my life, unoheered by your appreciative companionship, a mere desert waste.

With sentiment* of affeotion and respect, your sincere admirer, 6. Dcmbaetost. Lilia lost no time in composing the follow^VfucA respected sir: With extreme surprise I have read your communication proffering to me, in earnest terms, the highest oompliment it is in the power of a man to bestow upon aoy woman. I respond to yoar letter with the same clearness and conciseneaa with which it is written?I will not become your wife; and I make tbia positive declaration to yon with the less hesitation, beoanse I am fully persuaded that your soul is so well tempered by moral maxims, and fortified with Christian resignation, that you are proof against all those vicissitudes and reverses wbioh overwhelm ordinary and unrefieoting mortals. Believe me, reverend sir, your very and extremely obliged friend, Lilia Goldino , " This I consider to the full extent as stately as his reverence eould have framed it; indeed, somewhat of his own sanctimonious spirit has pervaded me," said Lilia, folding her preduetion, with a subdued but infinite satisfaction. * Yet, wait, yes, I mjtft oopy this very instructive correspondence? this model for contemplative lovers, and send it to Rebeeoa, \ then my satisfaction will be entire." Soon did Lilla's swift and nervou fingers i finish this task. She added a few fitting ob1 serrations to Rebeoea, counselling her, in fu, tore, to rely with greater deferenoe, upon so [ approved and mature a judgment as hers. deveral weeks elapsed, in whioh Lilia, not i hearing from Rebeooa, remained wondaringly i impatient as to the cans* of her silence. When i at last the desired letter tame it brought with ! it a food of light, more startling than grateful to the gratified ooquette. Rebeooa wrote: Dear Ltlia: Forgive me, if joa can, an i irresistible lore of the comical I hire baas t traveling in Virginia with my father, and we made a riiit to tha pleasant town where Mr. r Dumbarton U the loved pa*Lor of a Preabyterian oongregation.
