Many a lover's heart I bad laoerated by refusing their offer* of Marriage, after I had lured then on to a " declaration." My laat victim's oame waa James Prater Be waa a UU, awkward, homely, and ungainly man, hut hia heart waa aa true aa steel. I respected him highly, and felt pained when I witneaaed hia angurih at my rejection of him. But tbe faot waa, I had myself fallen In love with Cept. Elliott, who had bean uu remitting in hia devotion* to me. Mr. Fraier warned me against Elliott; but I eharged him with jealousy, and took hia warning as an intuit. A few daya afterward* Elliott and I were engaged, and my dream of romantic lore seemed to be in a fair way of realiiation. I bad a weak ef happiness. Many hare not to much in a lifetime. Many awake from tbe bright, abort dream to find tbemselvee in lifelong darkaeat, aad bondage from whioh there Is no eecape. Thank Qod, I waa not ao misarable aa they ! . My mother waa a widow in opulent circumstances, but having very bad health, she wu also of an easy, listless, credulous nature, hating trouble, and willing to take things just at tbey might happen to present themselves. She therefore made no inquiries about Capt. Elliot ?but fondly believed that inksmuch as be was a captain, he must necessarily be a man of honor also, especially aa be had served in the Crimea and in India, and wore medala. His regiment was quartered in our neighborhood, and he had tl.? reputation of being ona of the wealthiest, as he was oertainly the handsomest, officer in it I remember as well m possible the day wo became engaged:?he was ou duty, but bad managed to ride over to our heusein bis uniform, and while we were walking in tbe garden he made the tender avowal. I referred nim to " mamma;" be hastened to her?returned in three minutes?and l"d me Into her presence to receive tbe assurance that the maternal consent had be em readily and freely given ! To be sure ! My dear mother bated trouble, as I have said?and she moreover loved me tenderly; ao that she was well pleased to find a husband presenting himself in a form and manner apparently ao eligible for her beloved and only daughter. Well, a week passed quite delightfully, as I have said; and at the expiration of this brief period there might one forenoon have been saen a gay equestrian party riding through our old Devonshire woods and quiet country roads. ?lliott and I led the cavalcade. I rode my own beautiful Brown ?ess. Captain Elliott was mounted on tbe handsome black horse that had been sent him from Loudon. Following us waa a bevy of merry girls and their cavaliers; and among them was tall, awkward, and silent James Frazer. His presence had marred the pleasure of my ride, and I was glad to be in advance of them all that I might not see him. And so we rode on through the woods, and I listened, well pleased, to the low but animated words of the gallant Elliott, who wished himself a knight and me a fair iadye of the olden time, that he might go forth to do battla for me, and compel all men to recognise the claims of hia poerless love. Very eloquently he spoke of the inspiration of love, of the brave deeds and periloua exploita it had prompted, wishing again and again that he might thus proclaim and maintaia his love before the world. It pleased me to listen to this, and to believe it sincere, though I surely bad no wish to put my lover to such a test. A shot suddenly rang through the atill woods, and a wounded bird, darting paat, fluttered and fell at the feet of Brown Beaa. With a bound and a spring that nearly unseated me, she was off. btruggling to regain my seat, I had no power to restrain her; and even as she flew, the fear and madneaa of the moment grew upon her. I eoald only cling breathlessly to the mane and bridle, and wonder helplessly where this mad gallop waa to end. She swerved from a paasing wagon, and turned into a path that led to the river. In the sudden movement the reins had been torn from my handa, and I could not regain them. I clung to the mare, aad closed my eyee that I might not behold the fate that awaited me. How sweet was life ia those precious* momenta that I thought my laat! How all its joyt, its affections, its laatcrowningloveroseup before me ! I thought of the pane that would rend Elliott's heart as he saw me lying mangled and dead; and then tbe thought would oome if he were pursuing and trying to save me, even, as he had said, at the riak of life and limb. I remembered no more. I felt a sudden ahoek, a fearful rushing through the air, and knew no more until, days afterward, I woke to a faint; week aemblanoe of life in my chamber at home. I never taw Capt. Elliott again. The last words I ever heard from his lips were those of knightly daring Tbe last act of his life, in connection with mine, waa to follow in the traia of frightenad youtha who rode after ma, to contemplate tba diaaater from afar, and, as toon aa he aaw me lifted from the ah allow bad of the river into which I had bean thrown when my frightened horse stopped suddenly on its bank, he rode haalily off. That evening he tent- to maka inquiries, and learning that I waa aeverely, but it waa hoped not fatally, injured, he henoeforth oontented himself with such tidings of my tondition *nd improvement aa ooald be gained from mere rumor. At last, it was known that I could never recover entirely from the effecta of my injury, and that very day Capt. Elliott departed suddenly from the neighborhood. He made no attempt to see me, nor sent me any farewell. When 1 waa onoe more abroad, and beginning, though with mach unailayed bitterness, to learn the lesson of patience and resignation that awaited me, I received a letter from him, in which he merely said that he presumed my own jadgment had taught me that, in my altered eircumstances, our engagement must be at an end; but, to satiafy his own aenae of honor, (Am honor') be wrote to aay that, while ntertaining the highest reepeot for me, he detired a formal renunciation of my claim. Writing at the bottom of this letter, 4>Let it be as yon wish," I returned it to him at once, and thus ended my brief dream of rornantio love. I had heard era this of Elliott's cowardly conduct on that day; and uow I first bethought me tu inquire who had rescued tue from imminent death. And then I learned that James Fraser, hia arm already broken by tL<j jerk with whtoh Brown Beaa tore away from him as be eaught at her bridle, had ridden after ma, and been the first to lift me from the water. Maay times daily he had made inquiries concerning me. Hi.? had been the hand that sent the rare flowers that decked my room. Hit were the words that breathed words of comfort aud hope to my poor mother, hi* were the books I read in my lingering days of convalescence; aad kit, now, was the arm that supported me, as slowly and painfnlly, I paced the garden walks. I have bean his wtfe for maay a year. I have forgotten that ha ia aot handsome?or rather be is beeauful to me, because I see his grand and lovely spirit thiaing throagb hia plain Ceaturea and animating hit awkward figure. I have long siaoa laid aside, ae utterly antenable, my pet theory that beautiful spirits dwell only tn lovely bodies. It may be a Providential compensation that, ladeayiaf physical Krfeetioa. the eoul Is not dwarfed or distorted, t ablaee tbe brighter that it is aat marred by petty vaaity or love of tba warld's praise.

Meeting Oirard in the street, he stated his object, and was asked to call next morning. Mr. Coataa called and found Girard at breakfast. He asked him to take aome, which Mr. Coates did. After breakfast Mr. Coates said, "Well, Mr. Girard, we will proceed to business." ' Well, what have you come for, Samuel?" said Mr. Girard. "Just what thee pleases, Stephen," replied Mr. Coates. Girard drew a check for $2,000, which Mr. Coatee put in his pocket without looking at it. "What! you not look at the check I gave you!" said Stephen. "No, beggars must not be ohoosers, Stephen," said Mr. Coates. "Hand me back again the check I gave you," demanded Girard. "No, no, Stephen?a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush," said Mr. Coates. '?By George!" said Girard, "you hare caught me on the right footing." He then drew a check for $5,000, and presented it to Mr. Coates, observing, "Will you now look at it?" "Well, to please thee, Stephen, I will," said Mr. Coates. "Now, give me back the first check," demanded Mr. Girard?which was accordingly dene. The recent French census returns show some details of an interesting nature. Contrary to the generally received opinion, the tables prove that marriages are proportionally more numerous in the large towns and cities than in the country; the number of these is also on the increase. Of widows it appears only seven per csnt. marry again ; while widowers enter the connubial state to twice that ratio. Second marriages are more frequent in towns than in the country Observations in different parts of the empire would seem to show that the greater number of male children are born of parents nearly of the same age. In 1858 the average duration of wedded life in France was twenty-five years, against twentytlree years and two months in 1836. One third of the men and about half of the women yearly married are unable to sign their names. In the Seine, however, only one man in nineteen and one woman in six are unable to write. The populations of provincial towns hold an intermediate position between the Seine and the rural populations. The proportion of childron born out of wedlock and legitimated by the subsequent marriage of their parents is much greater in the Seine than in the provincial towns, aad the smallest of all in the rural districts. Secession Warfare.?Converting railroad bridges into man traps is a fnvorite pi ho with the rebels in other States th>?n Missouri. A correspondent of the Louisville Journal says it was reported in Camp Boone the other day that a lot of Union arm* ,and soldiers were coming down to the State line on the evening train. A company immediately went up on a car to a point between Hadensville and Allensville (I believe), where there is a small bridge, took up the rails, bored the sleepers full of holes, and carefully replaced the rails, intending to precipitate tbe train through and kill all on board. The scoundrels were fortunately seen by some good Unionists, who gave the alarm to tbe down train, which contained five passenger oars filled with women and children, and thus an awful disaster was prevented. cr In his official report, Capt. Semmes an- I uouQces th? result of one of the piratioal exploits of tbe Sumter in this terse fashion: "I captured the American ship Golden Rocket, belonging to parties in Bangor, Me. She was a fine ship of 600 tons. I burned her." The New York Post suggests this as a very good model for a dispatch trom one of our naval officer# when Capt. Semmes and the Sumter are captured together. The official report to ! the Navy Department might read thus : " I captured tbe steam privateer Sumter. Her captain, R. Semmes, was dealt with as a pirate. I hung him." Pnris letters tell us the September fashions vary but little from tbos* worn in August, except that mohair, thick gronadice and pique robes will be more worn than thin muslins, jaconets or bareges. A mohair dress with a white ground and black stripes, is prettily trimmed down tbe middle of the front with a broad piece of black silk, in which there is a row of black passementerie buttons. With this autumnal dress may be worn a black grenadine shawl having a lace flounce, and a nice straw bonnet with a black ribbon across it, and at the side # bow with tufts of blue corn flowers on each loop?provided you can give Madame the money to pay for it.
