Drink, and forget your care
The bultry summer suns art nigh '
Drink, and your strength repair:
The deer, that from the hunter flies,
The warrior, red with slaughter,
The camel, 'neath the burning skies,
Quaff deep the crystal water!

Dear Kate, I do not swear and rave
i Or sigh sweet things, as many can;

So firmly fond this breast can be,
That I would brook the sternest fate
If it but left me health and thee.

'What angel of beauty was that,
who smiled so sweetly and so fa
miliarly on you from the carriage
thai just passed us, Ellsford?' said
to my old friend, with whom I
walking arm in arm along
Market street, having just met
him after an absence of three
)'ears, as happy as a young girl
before love makes her serious.
'Oh! that's my wife.'
'Your wife! Well, you are a
,iaPPyHog, Ellsford. Why I ne
ver heard that you were married.'
'But! am, though, and to an
angel,asyou say truly, my friend,'
ad a half perceptible tear filled
1,1 his eye, while a smile played
v'er his manly face.
'When were you married?'
'Three weeks ago, and a hap
fJlep man never lived than your
friend Ell sford.'

kind of softened reflection.
Their house soon became the
most attractive spot to me in tht
city, and most of my evenings
were spent in their company. I
was often led to remark the pecu
liar delicacy and exquisite percep
tion of the beautiful, which dis
tinguished the mind of my fiiend's
lovely companion. Between her
soul and nature in its varied mani
festations there was a sympathy
which seemed almost to make her
a part of the great whole of crea
tion. To her, 'high mountains
were a feeling,' and the low brea

their wings of perfume, the loud
swell of the tempest, the clear

A few brief years passed away,
and the blight and the shadow fell
upon my friend's bower of peace.
The angel of death came with his
fearful summons, and the high
minded and noble Ellsford was no
It was three months after this
sad event that I returned home
from a long journey in the 'far
west,' and called to see the widow
of my early friend. 1 found her
as I had expected to find her not
paralysed in mind; but a calm,
and at times an almost cheerful
mourner. She was guarded in
her allusions to her husband; and
only so, it seemed, from the fact
that experience had taught her
that it were far belier not to in-
uuige in gnei. uut on, wnat a
change had come over the spirit
of her dream!
1 soon learned to my great
grief that affairs with Ellsford had
not been as prosperous as was
supposed. His lovely widow was
lell with a bare pittance after his
business was settled up and she
soon began to feel great concern
for her future support. In this di
lemma she advertised as a teacher
in a private family, and notwith
standing my gentle but earnest re
monstrance, accepted the place of j
governess in the lamily ot airs.
Mrs. Dobbs had served her
time in the kitchen, from which
she had been elevated bv Mr.
Dobbs, a man whose ideas could
comprehend a little beyond the
multiplication table. By degrees
he succeeded in adding dollars,
little careful of the means, until he
became one of the most wealthy
merchants of our city. His wife
soon began to feel her conse
quence, especially as her hus
band's reputed wealth and her
own splendid coach and gaudy
trappings, introduced her into the
best society. In a few years a
new edition of the Dobbs became
apparent, and as graceless a set
were not to be found in Charles
street, from Fayette to Franklin.
'Emily, my dear.
'Come, my love, 1 want you.'
What do you want?'
'I want to introduce you to
your new governess.'
'Is she cross, ma'' and a fat
awkward girl of some eleven years
old came rudely into the room,
and made her way boldly and fa
miliarly to where Mrs. Ellsford
'This my dear is what's your
name! I forget.'
'Mrs. Elsford.' -V
.o not that, your first name.'
'Caroline,' said she, half weep
ing, as thoughts of other days,
tud her high-minded and honored
husband came over her.
'Well, Caroline, this is Miss
Emma I want you to lake par
ticular care of her manners she

cannot ever be enough grateful to
Madame Uallopade for the great
attention she paid to her polite

'1 don't like her much, ma!'
'I am sorry for that. Caroline,
, me gins like you; they are very
amiable now, and I don't want
them to become rude. If you are
polite to them, you will soon make
them like you .'
Just at this moment Angelina
Dobbs, the celebrated belle, the
admired of all admirers of money,
came sweeping into the room
3he did not deign to notice Mrs.
Ellsford at first, but when her mo
ther told her this was Caroline,
who would give her some lessons
in music, as well as take charge
of the girls, she rolled her inex
pressive eyes upon her, and after
scanning her from head to foot,
with a half sneering air remark
ed Well, I reckon she'll do.
What's l ?r name rl didn't hear.
'Caroline hem! Ma, I wish
you hadn't went to Mrs. Melo
uee's ball last night you really
looked so awkward that 1 was
ashamed of you. And when you
do go out, why in the name of
common sense will you dance? 1
never saw anv one in mv life
dance so ungracefully. Whv,
Mr. Fortuuatus laughed right out
when you made that false move in
the cotillion and he is such a
gentleman in all his manners, and
so intelligent and interesting, 1
wouldn't have it happened for all
the world.' j
Even the heartlessness of wealth
soiteneu when such a woman as
Mrs. Ellsford became known in
her real character, and she was
now respected, and in many cases
where good sense happened to ac
company elevation, greatly es
teemed by such as visited Mrs.
Dobbs. This change in the tone
of visitors produced a correspond-
ing one in the family, and Mrs.
Ellsford was consequently treated
with more respect and less rude
ness. Her intelligence aud true
dignity; united with a winning
gentleness of manner and perfect
freedom from any effort at effect,
insensibly won the good will and
admiration of all; aud it at length
became a matter of almost neces
sity that Mrs. Ellsford should be
in the parlor whenever company
were present, because visiters al
ways asked for her, and would not
be satisfied unless she were pre
sent. She soon drew around her
an intelligent coterie of both sex
es, and rendered the drawing
room of Mrs. Dobbs quite attrac
tive. This could not be suffered to
continue long, as Miss Angelina
and her mother began to perceive
too plainly that the daughter was
thrown deeply in the shade by the
governess. Her situation was
soon rendered too disagreeable
for endurance, and she very re
luctantly determined to leave a
place where, notwithstanding the
constant shocks which her feelings
received she preferred remaining,
to again submitting to the scruti
ny and coldness of strangers.
