[Prom Temple Bar.] I am not aware that Mr. Carter's early life bowed any leaning toward the Machiavellianiam whioh haa furnished me with thia story. Educated at oae of tboce "sacred nurseries of (rowing youth," where to detain a voter for tea minntee in conversation tilt the cloee of the poll disfranchises him as effectually at if he had been a rotten borough, is considered a stroke of the bighoat art, he natarally followed the stream; bat how account for his snbs^ quent conversion? I never beard him speak of Ignatius Loyola, or Father Lignori; indeed I believe him profoandly ignorant of their existence, or at leaat of their doctrines; nor do I _i f_ > ? e j * tf ? t. 2ive aim creau ior a aeep siuayoi .Tiacniaveifi's writings. Perhaps if I have the honor of addressing any gentleman who is a casuist, he will let me hare his opinien on the case. It shall be stated plainly and briefly for his guidance. Mr. Cartar was a squire, or rather a country gentleman. His money was invested in ether ways than in land; and he had taken a small house for a summer when twenty-three, which he had kept ever sinoe, marrying, having a son, losing his wife, sending his son to school, having him home for the holidays, Ac., and ever doubting: where to more when the proprietor of the nous? gives him warning. This the proprietor is not likely to do, seeing that he gets a good rent, paid punctually, and that the village is so out of the way that be may wait a century for another tenant. Mr. Carter's son lires with bim Village life is well enough for those who hare out-lived action, but it is the worst thing to condemn a young gentleman to if you have any hopes of his future. Tou may oonsider country life the best for all, on the grounds adapted by a leading-article writer m an apology for writing on fields when requested to writer on gas-works, that "God made the country, and man made the town." If, however, yon examine this aphorism, which of course you don't, before uttering it, you will find that, like the thousand and one evasions of reasoning, it is of some merit as a popular saying, but tatally destitute of philosophical accuracy. If man made towns, so did man make villages, and still more, country houses. Towns are a confession of men that they cannot live alone, but villages are an attempt at uniting the hermitage to the social circle, and o give you the disadvantages of both. It is a sort of excuse, not that one was needed, for the love into which Mr Carter's son fell as oon as he came to reside with his father. Why excuse it ? His father did just the same when he first oams to the same village. He might have done worse, as many youne men of hi* age would hare done. Whether or no he miight hare done h^ter is a point Dot to be considered by a praflfcal historian, like the present one. Although Tom Carter1* love was not violent, it led nevertheless to many desperate musings, occasional attempts at poetio composition, and moonlight walks, and daylight pacings. One of these latter, chosen, as the best means of seeret and quiet thought, under his father's window, was being noticed by that astute gentleman. His son's love having been the talk of half the village for three weeks, had just come to his ears, and thus to his eyes. So strange he had never noticed it before! At 11 events. Dr. Bibber had never noticed it, hi. -1? ?4 -r fcUVIft^U IUO \ VIVW1 Of UHUg U ICI o rotiuu ui hi* (Carter's) son's lore wu equally patent. It wu dow evident that mutual modesty, shyne?'rather, prevented both youth and maiden from confessing their own or detecting the other's love. It seemed true love; why should he not lend a hand to falsify the poet's hasty expression, and mike it run smooth, by taking *11 obstacles out of the way ! He had known o many instances of the converse of that proposition taking plaee?true lore running with remarkable smoothness. 8# as his son paced past the window for the thirteenth time (remember the number!) he flung the sash up and called him. " Are you particularly engaged. Tom " No, replied Tom, after aome deliberation. He never answered hastily, this good young man, and he was afraid the numerous avocations of his life in an English village might suffer if he accepted another too rashly. 44 I have a favor to ask you," resumed the father, leaning out of the window, and looking ti v? u.? ?*2?t Y iuivoii wuihccu x uu maj uavo uulloou x seem preoooupied of late, disturbed, anxious " " I did not notice it," replied Tom, thinking be would keep a sharper eye on his father in future. " The fact is, my dear boy?you will not accuse me of sacrificing your interests, or think me selfish ?" The actor, not to be ashamed by his son's cordial grasp of the hand ! " What do you i^lnk. Tom, of the family near us ? Dr. Bibber.?if be only drank wioe, you might call him Win* Bibber?ha, ha!?do you like him ?" Tom had pressed Dr. Bibber mentally to hia heart sixteen times a day; but he merely replied in vague terms something about a warm friend. Ac.?true enough, if noise was warmth. " A very friendly man, indeed; I arree with you there. Bat what do you thins of his daughter V Tom was quite as practiced a dissembler as his father. What is more, he had prepared himself for the question ever since he fell in 1ot?, and had learned an answer to it by heart. i. * x ? a_ ? ? ?__ a -- x mi UK o?r ? tbi"j laaj-uae ana accompliihed person." " I am glad to bear so favorable aa opinion," replied the father, who had expected herniation and biushea " Pretty, too ?" 44 Ye-e-a, for aome tastes." 44 You have not loat jour heart to her, then, it Mem a ?" If Tens had bat spoken the truth?why didn't he ? If ever I write mj proposed Essay on Truth, I will examine hia motives for doing what he never would have done had the mattor regarded aagEt elae but hia personal feeling*. He aaid plainly and flatly 44 No," which waa as rood aa ten yea'a. The lather's brow cleared at onoe. and the son'a clouded o?# at the aight 44 You reassure me, my dear aon," he aaid. " Had there vuo tUKHMW IUU11U?UUU uu juur pin, HI might well nave been, and u I oould not bat suspeet, I oould never hare spoken. As it ia, will you go to Mia Bibber and ask her to marry me?" And then, bis feelings not allowing kia to wait the answer, he shot down the window desperately, and hid himself from the ejes of men. He was recalled in a moment by the shout of bis son. " My dear father, I will go willingly for you. But would it not be better to go yourself? If yon feel s6 deeply, would she not be more moved by your feelings than by a mere message from you V* " Mr dear son, if I was your age I would go myself. But yon most remember the difference between my age and hers, wkieh would make a personal offer almost ridioulous. You will ob. >ge me, wont you ?" The eon thought it hard, but how oonld be excuse himself? He kad professed utter indifference for the lady fire minutes before; how oonld ke go at once into the opposite extreme ? So ke walked tkere. with n new idea of the retentions destiny personified by the Greek poet*, in whom he had not yet.belieTed. Bat by the time he got to Dr. Bibber'* neat eottage, he had made up hi* mind to aacrtfloe himeelf, a aoeond Iphigenia, differing only in ex. Caroline Bibber ?h too pretly to lire unmarried; if the oonld not be hia wife, it voeid bo n eoneoletion to have her for hi* mother; better than ahe should marry an at tor at ranger and depart from Tottenham to gladden ether circle* Fall of thia feeling, be marched boldly in, and confronted Dr Bibber rending Aristotle in the original to hie daughter. The period ha* at length arrived to gire a, aketoh of the yenng lady. She had the greet fortnn* of being a brunette, and thongh inclining to aneh tm6cnpo%mt aa ?aa natsrally ^dneedJ)^oo^r 7 lifla^ retainsd the^grace ral to darknass. The %xquisive olive tint of her face had been entailed upon her, through fair-faced immediate ancestors, from the first known of the (took. Such for her appearance, necessarily more fascinating* to admirers of the dark stjle than to the learned authorities on female beauty who deoree fairness to be the chief excellence, forgetting the phlegm and flesh whioh so often attend it. Her education was that of a young lady, as were her accomplishments. I am afraid she could not discourse on taste, Shakespeare, and the musical glasses; but she had an accurate taste, had read two plays in Bowdler, and played the piano. In a word, she was one of the daughters of England. mi * a. .? rr t ( * mis is not a love siory; u is tiaoale ohne Litbe. Tou will excuse my quoting a tongue as familiar to the English generally as their mother tongue; so much so that 1)t. Buckle quotes pages of Kant in the original, to the <iespair of Germans, who don't understand it. Even professed lore-stories, only one excepted, are filled less with love than with the consequences of it. But tn a professed lore-story you are required to giro at least one lore soene, which I don't mean to do. The young ladies who like to know how lore is made are referred to another place. Why should they object ? I am endeavoring to throw the gentle spell of female influence over the taSr, as a publisher adrised me to do if I wrote a novel: and I hare given them in a description of the young lady, without its being wanted. So permit me to return to the father. He was sitting in the library, and occasion ally pacing up and down it, to concoct the rest of his plot. Like a chess-player, he had calculated all the probabilities, prorided for every eonsequence, except his adversary's move. Most likely the young lady would refuse him; alia /JirJ fiA> si k*a J# j* AlJF ?/?* nuu \ciu uvv uvovi ?o uiO SUU 11 311U U1U 1IUL. XUO son, too, would be lukewarm at first in pleading a oause he codld not have at heart, and would only be Awakened to warmth bj the refusal. He would then, in hope for himself, urge his father's olaiia, and finally be interrupted bj her saying playfully, "Why don't jou speak for yourself, John ?" as is laid down for a similar case in " The Courtship of Miles Standish," whence the father had borrowed his scheme. The only objection to this was his son's being named Tow, not John; but a young lady of parts could easily surmount such an obstacle. This was far the most likely oourse; for the others, it was hardly worth while to think of them. If she accepted him, he oould explain to his son. If she rejected him without accepting his son at the same time, he could get bis son to propose fer himself. And the young lady had only three courses:?to accept him, to reject him, or to take his son instead. Ah, Mr. Carter, you never heard s certain statesman speak, and you little know the strange power of three courses. He waa Still indnl?in?r in thps? nleaainir r?. flections when awakenel from hia reverylty a load, hasty voice. outside. '-Oh, you needn't announce me to Mr. Carter, John; we are otd friends?or not exactly old friends, but we're going to be soon. There, you need'nt open the door; I know all about it, or I shall know how all the doors open before long." Mr. Carter sprang to bis feet and hastened towards the door, which waa flung open in his face by Dr. Bibber with such foroe aa to necessitate a spring backwards of six feet on the part of the host, to make the binges craok, and to shoot the gueat into the room as if he had been one of Louis Napoleon's laat warlike inventions. 44 How do you do, Carter? how do you <!&? Well, I hope the east winds (are they east or aouthwest, by the way, I've not seen the barometer lately?) have not knocked you up, as they used my poor old friend Admiral Jiffcock.
