to the nature of my affection for you? Dear little paper, but for you, I should never have known that I might aspire to be loved in return!”

Poor Mr. Day! love made him loquacious as it does those who have lived upon the thoughts of it all their life. Mrs. Brooks's “inan of business" was like all other men, and Supbia, the happiest of the happy, was thinking how well love-speeches became him. considered by her young friends to be plain-looking, but in her eyes at this moment, he was positively hand.

He was

some.

“I was not many minutes writing what I then thought a very foolish thing," continued he; " and to tell you the truth, I wrote mechanically, without considering the import of the words at all. I only recollect thinking it a silly thing that a man of business,' as Mrs. Brooks always calls me, and which I am, should have engaged in writing love-verses. Ah! if I could have foreseen"

Well,” said Mrs. Brooks, on seeing Mr. Day with his arms around Sophia's waist, looking fondly in her face, you have made it up, I see; why we were all gloomy enough when I left the room; have you found out who wrote the valentine ?"

“ Yes my dear madam,” said be, “ and as Sophia has determined to inarry the one who wrote it, I have given my consent, and I hope you will give yours."

“Oh, my dear, dear aunt,” said Sophia, throwing her arms around her neck, “ Mr. Day wrote it himself; you shall hear all about it."

“ But you promised to marry the writer, be says, is it true ? and is it my man of business' all the while that gave us such disturbance about an old valentine? Ah, Sophia, how often in my heart bave I wished for this, but did not dare to speak my mind."

Sophia has spoken her mind,” said Mr. Day; God bless her!

SONNET.

:

Ove great forms of nature ; 0), thou sun

Uprising or descending ; 0), vast sky,

Whether thy infinite expanse on high
Enlarges our dim minds in open noon,
Or that thou gatherest, in thy mighly hall,

The other worlds, a still assemblage drea,
And the invisible God in midst of all-

Do ye not, O ye wonders, thus outspread On all sides, fill ibis heart! O sky, 0 earth,

I've lov'd you, and ye forest greeneries

From which trees rise, ye branches of the trees, Ev'ir till I knew not if I had gone forth Among you, or still liv'd- But as before This heart for ever longs for something more.

of fortune on his part be the obstacle, provided he de. serves you in other respects, that shall be no biodrance, for are you not my sole heir ? Most tenderly and de: votedly have I loved you my dear Sophia, froin your ehildhood to this hour, but never til this moment did I know it would be so bitter a pany to part with you, to give you to another. But you may be convinced of the sincerity of my affection by the great sacritice I make in thus giving you up--and must l-must I indeed part with you, just as I have discovered that you are so necessary to my happiness ?-am I to live in solitary wretched ness, without hearing that sweet voice?-without-oh, Sophia, dear girl, forgive me, forget what I have said, and believe me only your friend. Alas! that one so unsuited to you in years, should dare to love you as I do—as I must always love."

Sophia wept, to be sure, but they were tears of joy. She raised her head at length, but he begged her not to speak, not to distress herself further, as he would wait till she were more composed, before he asked her who the gentleman was. She went to the writi..g-desk and took out the valentine ; but when she put it in his hand be shook his head and sighed. “ Not noi", Sophia, not now," said he,

I only want the name; as to the verses, the handwriting, what is that to me now?".

“ Everything to you," said Sophia, casting down her eyes, it is everything to you, if you really and truly love me as you say.”

"If I really love you, Sophia ! -can be who wrote this paper ever hope to love you as tenderly as I do?"

“ Yes, and I hope in time mure tenderly--look at the writing, will you ? pray do, and hear me again declare that I never have, never can love any other that I never will marry any other than the writer of this foolish valentine."

With a desperate effort Mr. Day tore open the paper, but the colour flew to his temples, he was like one in a dream, he looked at Sophia, her eyes were on the ground but there was a smile visible; he pronounced her name in a low voice, and then checked bimself, as if not daring to realise the truth.

“ Sophia,” said he at length, “ Sophia, may I believe in the truth of the words you have just uttered ?"

• Can I believe in all that you have just said ? ” replied Sophia, " when you so stoutly denied having written this valentine ?"

" Blessed paper!” said he, kissing it, “ most pre, vious valentine! little did I dreain that it was to be the means of so much happiness.”

“ But when did you write it?" said Sophia, trying to disengage herself from his arms, “ tell me all about it, for I am still in the dark-to whom did you send it, if not for me?" “ I did not send it to any one, dearest; this was the

About four years ago Ralph Fleming was very desirous of going to the races, and I was very desirous that he should not. He promised me at length if I would do him a little favour he would give up the races, for that year at least. The little favour was simply to write this valentine. He wrote a large ir. jegular hand, and this required the finest of writing and the smallest of letters. It was you my dear Sophia that induced me to form my letters in that way; in fact I had your wishes, your pleasure in view, in everything that I undertook. How could I have been so blind to

THE DREAMINGS OF AN IDEALIST.

I am one of those who take a pleasure in losing themselves in the intricacies of speculation. My greatest delight is to make an eternity of my thoughts, and gather up all I have ever possessed or desired into a changeless individual consciousness. My heart feels freer when I am thus employed ; sorrow and disappointment lose their earthly grossness, and leave only a tender sensation like a reflex gladness. The world is then within the sphere of my own soul, and is ruled

and moulded by my will. External objects, as they continued to be regarded with the same reverence; nor pass before me, are looked at as a fair pageantry, whose could there any where be heard wilder tales of feudal glorious original is imperishably mine ; and the pro- | strife or baronial magnificence than in its neigh: found wonders of nature, though inexplicable when I bourhood.
