immortal obligation. A salutary change had passed over the mother in experiencing these sweeping calamities. She has become quite as industrious, and almost as firm and energetic, as her admirable daughter.

'Early last Spring, one of our neighbors, a very rich widower, without a child, some fifteen years older than Hannah, a good-natured, simple, money-getting, inert, good for-nothing sort of personage, became smitten with the excellent orphan mourner of our family, and offered himself in form, through her mother. Every body, at a single view, seemed to consider the offer an admirable one for the lady, in every respect. It was discussed by her mother, in conclave with my parents, some time before it was submitted to herself; and so naturally do mothers, advancing in years take the impress of the thoughts of those about them, that Mrs. Hervey adopted at once the views of my parents : and the rather, as she had become attached to them, and the town in which they lived, and as this marriage would insure the mother and daughter an independence, and perpetual residence among their friends. I supposed, as a matter of course, that she would adopt their views, and be swayed by their wishes, to marry this rich inanity. So deep was my friendship for her, so like love the sentiments of homage and respect which I entertained, that I was half inclined to make an effort to woo the lovely mourner myself, to save her from a still more unworthy union.

“Thankful and rejoiced was I to hear the result of the interview of the wealthy suitor. The object of his passion affected no prudery, no disinclination to marriage. She hinted at the dreadful scenes which within a year had blighted her affections, and withered her heart, rendering her, as she believed, incapable for the present of the love which a wife should bear her husband. “But,' she added, with her customary magnanimous frankness, 'I will not dissemble with my mother and these my dear friends, and assign the sterility of my stricken heart as the reason why I decidedly reject him. I regard marriage as so right and proper for an unprotected, and especially a poor woman, and I consider convenience, and the prospect of temporal comfort and a sufficiency, such essential elements in the motives to induce one to marry, that if I had esteem for this man, and any grounds to believe that I could ever like him, I would ask him to wait until I had made the effort.

But this man-I understand you-his looks, his temper, his circumstances, are all much in his favor. But there are some associations that cluster round my internal image of a husband—for grave and melancholy as you seem to consider me, I have sometime drawn this ideal picture—which are most remote from any thoughts that I can connect with this

Alas! I would say, in the customary phrase, that I thank him for his good opinion of me, and so forth; but it would not be true, and I do not thank him. I am sure that I never could regard him with any feeling but one so nearly allied to loathing, that I would not marry him for the world. I am not so good as you affect to think me, very proud, and perhaps a capricious girl. I do think, that woman, in no age of time, was ever considered such a miserable slave as that universal impression views her, which adjudges that a rich fool, if he be neither a brute, nor a demon, ought to be accepted by the first poor girl to whom he offers himself. It is, it must be, a penance to live in this relation with a fool for life, and I am determined not to marry for penance. Others may consider a girl like me a marketable article, if they choose. am not in the mar

ket on this condition. I am contented as I am, and while I possess these hands, I shall always consider myself and my mother independent, so far as regards subsistence.'

• I was allowed the privilege to be present at this discussion. Observing, perhaps, a good deal of surprise in my countenance, she turned to me, and said; • My friend and brother, (she was accustomed to call me so,) 'I hope you are not offended with me for taking this view of the subject.' “Not at all, my dear sister,' I replied. “On the contrary, you have removed a load from my heart.' And I verily believe, in the excitement of the moment, that she would have had another offer on the spot, had she not contrived, probably in anticipation of my purpose, with her accustomed tact and decision, to give the conversation another turn.

'It happened, that not many days after this rejection of the rich lover, I visited New York, and spoke as I felt of Hannah, to my admirable young friend, Henderson L-of whom I will pronounce no other eulogy, than that my simple, unvarnished tale inspired him with a sort of love for her, and a determination to return with me to Rochester, and if he found her such as I had described, to make a tender of his heart to her. He was heir to one of the best estates in the country, handsome, accomplished, highminded-sustaining the highest standing, and, in a word, a person with the very mind to be allured by such a young lady as Miss Hervey. In a few days, I returned, and he accompanied me, causing me, however, on the way, repeatedly to renew my biographical sketch.

"When he arrived at our house, as she had never heard of him, and was led to suppose that his motive for visiting Rochester was business, there was in her deportment towards him none of that consciousness and reserve which it would have been almost impossible for a young person like her, wholly to have avoided, had she been aware of the object of his visit. She saw, indeed, by our deportment towards him, the high regard, the great consideration, we entertained for him; and this, no doubt, insensibly influenced her estimate of him. The unequalled strength, the unpretending dignity of her character, produced a still deeper impression upon him than I had expected. Though she had grown to be decidedly beautiful, she would not have been considered, by ordinary observers, a showy girl. But seeing us making every effort to amuse our friend, and wholly unsuspicious that he had come with any thoughts in relation to her, she naturally put forth all her powers of pleasing. We soon discovered that our friend was deeply in love. Hannah was the last one among us to make the discovery, but she did make it; and, as was natural, became in consequence more reserved and constrained in her manner towards him-a circumstance which accelerated his declaration.

* She was not a little surprised, and she must have been more than woman or mortal, not to have been flattered. She told him, however, that she had not for him the sentiment, if she understood what it was, that is called lore; but that she liked him much, and had an impression, that if he saw fit to allow her the pleasure of a longer acquaintance, she might attain that sentiment towards him. This was a way of receiving a declaration, I believe, wholly out of the mode ; but there was a reason, truth, and propriety in her manner, that satisfied her lover, who continued to remain in our family. Scarcely a month had elapsed, when an incident occurred, that set the moral worth of Henderson Land his magnanimity, kindness, and integrity, in a most

When the laughter of the young and gay · Is far too glad and loud; I hear thy low, sad tone,

And thy sweet, young smile I see, - My heart-my heart were all alone,

But for its thoughts of thee!

Of thee, who wert so dear,

And, yet, I do not weep; For, tbine eyes were stained by many a tear

Before they went to sleep;
And, if I haunt the past,

Yet may I not repine,
Since thou hast won thy rest at last,

And all the grief is mine !

striking light. It was an incident for'which he could not have been prepared. It was by mere accident that it reached her ears. Her eyes glistened, as the noble action of our friend was related by me, certainly with no embellishment, but as certainly in a way which I intended, if possible, should make a direct and striking impression, upon her heart. Tears stood in her eyes, as I proceeded, part of which tribute I might suppose paid to my eloquence-a circumstance always favorable to the increase of that attribute in the orator. They walked together in the woods and meadows, the evening subsequent to her learning the facts in question. With a perturbation rather unusual to her firm and collected character, she told Henderson that she now loved him, and if he continued of the same mind as formerly, was ready to give him her hand, whenever he chose to ask for it.

*You may easily divine the rest. He purchased the estate we have passed, and there built that sumptuous country house, which they make their summer residence. His wife has the satisfaction, in addition to possessing the best hus. band I know, of making the old age of her mother comfortable, and of many a lonely evening walk to the graves of the loved and lost of her family, cut off by the dreadful catastrophe I have mentioned. These walks do not, as she affirms, render her sad, but calmly thoughtful, and more firm and active for her duties. They repress the fullness of a joy, which in the case of such a happy nature as hers, and one which has so completely met all that she ever imagined necessary to felicity, might become too buoyant and confident. They remind her of the uncertainty of that tenure by which we hold all below the sun. I should be glad if the thousands of heartless fools, mere beaux and belles, who know nothing but what they call fashion---those biped animals of existence, who are preparing a generation of fools for the coming age---could contemplate this couple, and see what is the real dignity and enjoyment of wedded life. It is to be hoped we should no longer hear them denouncing • blues,' and, knowledge, as pedantry, and enviously wishing to reduce every body to their own level of inanity. But my desire is useless ; for these vain and senseless souls would not have eyes to see the instruction which this spectacle is so well calculated to afford.'

I think upon thy gain,

Whate'er to me it cost, And fancy dwells, with less of pain,

On all that I have lost ;Hope-like the cuckoo's endless tale,

- Alas! it wears its wing !And love, that-like the nightingale

Sings only in the spring!

Thou art my spirit's all,

Just as thou wert in youth,
Still from thy grave no shadows full

Upon my lonely truth ;-
A taper yet above thy tomb,

Since lost its sweeter rays,
And what is memory, through the gloom,

Was hope, in brighter days!

I am pining for the home

Where sorrow sinks to sleep.
Where the weary and the weepers come,

And they cease to toil and weep!
Why walk about with smiles

That each should be a tear, Like the white plumes that fling their wiles

Above an early bier!
