Attending a singing school some years ago, j
became acquainted with very flue girl, (I beg
-rnrrrfot,-tliey call tbem-y-oung ladies bow.) From
our first acqiwintance, I thought I loved her,
and w e became in a very short time ' very warm
friends ;' and 'then occasionally I visited the
house, under the pretence of ' coming to see her
brother, a wild, mitchievoua chap, who loved
fun better than he did his dinner. And from
that I got so fast that I became an every even
ing visitor' to tee my fair charmer.

an opportunity to enllipper him, I can't say for
ever, all I know is he was a fine old man,
Now, the old gent, or the ' Governor,! as we
used to call him, had taken a great fancy to Die.
I used to sit and talk politics to him, and he of- '
t:n said I Was a tine, quiet, considerate, ' perfect
imslel young man.' And he would not suffer 1
' Lielia, his" pretty daughter, to go out; of hi 1
sight with any but me 'th nice youni tnsO.'
And he always wished m to be, intimate with'
hi wild son Charley, thinking b would reform,
if he was in my company part of his time, and
I'll assure you I did not undeceive him, as to my
reiircharncter, for the fair Lielia's sake.
One night, I remember, (bow can I forget it!)
Charley, a jolly friend named Frank , and
myself, returned from a day's fishing. There
was the fair Lielia preparing our cupper tor as.
Charley had slqlped from the kitchen, and Frank
was apparently amusing himself by poking hia
cane in a cae at a favorite canary. And I
felt as if I was alone with the girtTwtlored.
