" This i a pretty predicament to be in
after ur long, tiresome journey ! What
does uncle mean by serving us each a
miserable iiickT I suppose, though, it
is oiy what poor j relations may ex
pect, j However, I will show them a hat
their poor relations are made of. Mag
Q. the up train will be here in fire min
utes, and we will return by it to the city.
Our dear relatives will learn that we are
not to be insulted with impunity."
Thus ppoke Pauline Vernon (her
blacdleyes flashing all the haughty indig
nation her words and "tone expressed,) as
she stood on the platform of a country
railway station with hr cousin Maie,
while the train, from wbiehr they had just
stepped, was moving slowly away.
X think you are doing uncle aud aunt
injustice, Puline, said her cousin. We
both now their kindness too well to sus
pect them of willingly neglecting jis ;
d ;peid Upon it, there is a good reason for
unclejs non-appearance, and I would not
for the world, wound him by returning to
the city when we are so near his home.'
Pauline and Magjrie Vernon were or.
liani, and descendants of a familv who
uao prttiea lUenisclves on their patricion
bloorj ; and when their mutual guardian
died, this pride of family was the lefapv

Jeft to our two ladies-one ivhich thev
foundf to be very slightly appreciated by
the world, especially as they had no
wealth to prop up their pretentions ; so,
to Pauline's intense disgust, they were
obliged to teach for a maintenance : and
as she styled it, " herd with common
traah' They had been invited by an un
cle, to spend their vacation with him at
his residence just on the outskirts of a
pleasant N. Jersey village. At the station
in that village, they had just arrived, and
not finding their uncle there to receive
them,' according to promise, occasioned
the above outburst of anger from Pauline.
The passengers who had left the train
with them, were all branching off in raer
ry grpnps and carriage loads to their va
rious destinations, and there was no one
left behind to bear them company but a
man in an ordinaay farmer's dress, who
atood a little distance from them. Pan
line's jeyes darted angry fires around her
on perceiving their deserted condition.
' Come Pauline,' said Maggie, let us in
quire where uncle lives and go there im
mediately ; aud if, on our arrival, we
find tley have purposely neglected us, it
will then be time to stand on our die:
Pauline drew angrily away from her
cousin, and was declaring her determina
tion to die rather than go a step towards
her uncle's when the man in farmer'
dress Walked up to her and inquired if
iney ware me young ladies who were eo-
to ;ur. iieioert's.
Pauline stepped back, and her haughty
eyes surveyed him with a far away sort
of a glance, as if he was an object too
mean even for scorn ; and then, without
deigning to answer, khe leisurely turued
Maggie, However, a ne quickly forwarJ
and explained matters. She was then in
formed by the man that their uncle having
been unexpectedly called from home had
commissioned him to be their escort ; aud
pointing to , a bridge a few rods distant,
be said lie was to row them from there
right to the foot of their uncle's garden.
Pauline consented (though with a very
bad grace) to accompany this fellow,'
as she calhd him, and complained angrily
that 8ucfi a 'clod ' es he had been sent to
be their escort.
We wll describe the cousins as they
Stood waiting the return of the man who
had gone to arrange their baggage. '1 hey
were brunettes, of the fame height, were
both beautiful, yet as strikingly differeut
in appearance as they were iu character.
Maggie, the junior by several months,
was slender, lithe and willowy in form
and movement, and her soft, daik
eyes beamed kindly on every bo
dy Pauliire was a grand woman, and
looking at her one realized the full sig
nification pf the term 'queenly;' her lus
trous black eyes never, in their teudereet
moments, had auy of the peculiar softness
of her .cousin's, aud wheu their proud
composure gave way to anger, they would
have been admirable in a Medea.
When' they reached the bridge, the man
descended ahe steps and turned to assist
them into I the boat. Maggie came first,
and was lifted into the seat with a skili
that could not be outdone by the most
accomplished cavalier. She" looked im
ploringly at PaulFne, ho stood gathering
up her efciris without noticing the man,
as he stood waiting to assist her in also.
After arranging her drapery to her satis,
faction, she Mas about to enter the boat
when he look her arm to support her. She
turned on, him haughtily, and 6aid, I
will demand your assistance, sir, when I
require it And before Maggie could
ofi'er a word of remonstrance, she stepped
info the boat, bringing such a sudden
weight to bear on one side that they were
Doth nearly precipitated into the water.
Maggie, looked anxiously at the man,
feeling heartily ashamed of her cousin's
proceeding ; she saw bis face color hotly,
but otherwise he did not seem to mind the
treatment be bad received.
How could you let the creature touch
you, Maggie ? asked Pauline But Mag
gie could not answer y for jus, then the
creature stepped into the boatTand in a
few minutes they weie gliding rapidly
over the rver.
Maggie was anxious to atone for the
cousiu's ungraciousness as far as possible,
so she chattered with the man in a grace -ful,
kind way, despite frequeul nudges and
frowns from Pauline.
4 He's teal nice, she thought, as they
stepped out on her uncle's grounds. 'I
wonder who' he is ? a neighbor of uncle's

which Pauline remaiued scornfully silent.
She could have struck her uncle, so great
was her indignatiou.
'Ae Maggie has a decided predilictior.
for rural swains, she is more likely to be
the honored one," she said in a measured
tone of biting sarcasm; and the express
ion of her face gave additional emphasis
to her words.
An awkward silence followed. Mag
gie colored hotly aud Mr. Ramsay, with
an amused expresiou on his face, looked
steadily into his teacup. Mrs. Herbert
gracefuly changed the subject, aud all
went on as before

Great was Pauline's chagrin and dis
appointment. She was impatient to se
cure her prize and then, too, she was
really louely, for to her great disgust, a
mutual linking had sprung up between
her cousin and Mr. Ramsav. and
persistently refused to hold any conversa
tion with that "clod," he frequently came
between her and Maggie's society.
une evening Maggie and Mr. Ramsay
had strolled down to the river and seated
themselves on an old boat thrown np near
the bank. The moonlight was jrloiious
and no sound but the soft plash, plash of
tho water broke the profound hush around
tbem. Maggie was thinking thoughts
she almost trembled to think, lest, by a
eortof magnetUm, they might be trans
mitted to the man beside her; for the
was thinking of him thinking how
completely he had become a part i t her
happiness; and how great a pan, she
realized with h j ai, when sin nought of

her companion tpnlf the t-ili i.ce.
Maggie, he eaid. Sr.. started, and
her heart gave a great wild leap; it was
the first time he had called her by that
name. 'Maggie, you told me something
this morning, which has troubled me ever
since that is, that you have but a little
while longer to remain here. It will make
a great blank in my life, when you are
gone," he continued, taking the little
hand that rested on the rough boards be
side him; she did not withdraw it, so he
still continued. 'There has been a great
battle going on in my mind to day,
Maggie, between Love and Doubt ; Love
bade me disregard all obstacles; but
Doubt whispered, "Perhaps Love is pre
sumptuous.' Do you think it presump
tion fVr me to ask you to be my wife,
Mnggie ?' His grip tighttned on hr hand,
and he bent toward her with a look of
eager supplication iu his eyes to catch

He made a quick move to draw her to
him, and paused."
Cqn you love me, Maggie ?" he asked,
as if not quite sure of his happiness.
4I do she answered, quickly.
As they walked toward the house that
evening, her lover said: "What if this
Oscar Lynn, who is coming, should fall
in love with you Maggie? Ho is rich,
you know, and I am-poor."
40h, he won't, laughed Maggie, mer
rily. 'Besides, he is for Pauline, you
4Ob yes ! He always admired her.
And then, Pauline is ambitious, it would
be just the thing for her to marry a
for.une like that. In fact, she has quite
set her heart upon it.'
Her lover pressed her hand aud said,
"My darling, how blest I am in wiuning
you simply through your love for me,
and in the knowledge that there is not a
gross or sordid motive in your heart.
Such love deserves to bo rewarded; and
you will yet have a fortune equal to that
so coveted by Pauline." He made one
request before they parted for the night ;
it was that she would not mention their
bethioihal to any one until he gave her
permission. She granted it readily, aud
after receiving his good night, hurried to
her room to be alone with her happiness,
leaving him on the piazza with her uncle,
whoJiad just come from the village.
'He is coming to-morrow, Maggie,"
said Pauline, coming in soon after.
"Who Mr. Lynn"
"Of course! who else? It seems I am
a true prophetess, Maggie' she continu
ed. "I told, y ou yon would fall in love with
that rustic Adonis, Mi. Ramsay, and you
are e vidently fulfilling my prophesy."
'Oh, yes! you may exelaim ; but just

As they passed down the strirs they
caught a glunpfc of an elegantly d
gentleman through the parlor door, stand
ing with his back towards them, looking
out of the window. Pauline flushed with
satisf; cion at the sight.

The Outrages on American Citizens.
In the first case it appears by the of
ficial despatches to the government that
the more recent troubles have arisen front
the outrageous conduct of the Cuban vol
n iteers, which has resulted in compelling
American citizens to leave Havana.
This reached such a point tbat on yester
day the Consul General appealed to the
United States for protection aud assis
tance. Immediate steps were taken, as
telegraphed last night, in response to that
1 PeJ. An armed fle t as stated above,
ot four or five vessels, will atoncercodex
vrns in the harbor of Havana, the coa
manding officer of w hich has been order
ed to place himself in communication with
the Consul-General and to obey the above
instructions which hare been sent him.
The gun-boat Nipsic is about to leare
Pensacola for Havana with all
dispatch. 1 he Kansas, now at the Brook
lyn .avy lard, has been ordered to pro

1 error, at Key est, has been oidcred
into commission also, and. will join the
Nipsie. while the Nantaikct and Shaw

is at pte.ent at Key West, and though
lying quietly in the haibor at that port, is
not out of commission and can be iu
readiuc ss for prompt actioo at very short
notice. Her present commandii.g officer
is 1 Commander Aaron V. Weaver. The
Nipsic, a founh rate screw rtearaer,

known steamers in the service, having
performed aciire blockade doty on the

after waids figuring proaiinently in the

case of serious difficulties one or two gov
ernment tugs, of which there are now in
the service ubont twenty eight, would be
assigned to that snnad
their eG-iency as dispatch boats, could
easily be moanterl wi.h 1 or 2 guns, and
thus materially inciease the roverntaent

which is wanting for men at Itoston,
with no immediate prospect of getting
them, it is understood will also be sent to

there wiih but one exception, the Terror,
are wooden vessels. The department is

Senor Roberts, the Spanish minister
here, was called ou this eveuir.g to learn
if he had any information which he could

extremely reticent, though be was not
able to deny the mutinous cocrse of the
