In myrtic union, ne'er to end.

Like incenic offered to the sun,
Ascending, till it reach the skies,
To inwt thes, pure and lovely one.

What Mrs. Montague's Mantilla Cost!
v "Weix, It is a love of a mantilla, indeed."
T ''Yes, ma'am, it's what I call truly elegant ;
fhere aint nothing like it in' town.- But Mrs. An-
son has the best taste," we think, of any lady in the
..city,", replied ke milliner's girl, flippantly.
"Well, I'm hot so sun? about the taste. The
' tonception i yery good, but! that, I fancy, is your
- colors. .This blue velvet and silver and the chin
chilla fur ha bat a poor effect. Now,; if : I "were
goings to order bne, I. should say dark green velvet,
with real gyld bullion cords and real sablei." j
-'Oh, my !" exclaimed the girl, clasping . her
hands whh a well-titnod affectation of surprise,
"that would bo superb. This is elegant, but that
would be queenly! Do, Mrs. Montagu, let me say
one for "you ? You'll qnite eclipse Mrs. Anson
then, and it aitit no pleasure working for Mrs. An
son, anyhow,' for she aint got no figure to set any
thing off, she a int. Do let me say one for you,
Mrs. Montagu." ' ;
"Well, I don't know. I suppose they cost a for
tane. When could you have it done ?"
. - Tuesday to-day is. Why, seeing it's you Mrs.
Mohtagu, I think I could promise it for Thursday.
t wouldn't undertakeit for anyother lady fn New

I could say Thursday afternoon. A fortune ! oh,
ta ! no, Mrs., ifontagu ; for the elegance of them, j
they'll be the lowest thing that haa come put this I
season. Anu we puis mem a leeua lower, uu

Hcr hair, it tick the raven' wing, and glossy
with a rich purple half- metallic glos, was smooth
ed away from her low, white, polished forehead,
aad collected into a heavy knot, low down at the
back of the head. Her eye were rf thedreprsi.
blue, although her strongly depicted brow and I
long eyelashes were black as night.
Her lips glowed like coral, and her cheeks were
flashed with the warm hues of. youth and health;
bnt the glimpse of her neck and chest which was ;
afforded by her high-sitting frock, was as white r.s ;
fctatuary marble, and so were her rovind,slrapeiy
arrne, which were bare almost to the slsoulder.
It was a beautiful, calm, rnoJeet face, as v:r
met the eye of man, and though it could w t fail
to he discovered to be ol the Milesian type of beau- j
ty, there was not a belle n the city, neither mat
ron or miid, who might not have envied the face
ancT form of the Irish chambermaid.
And in truth, oftentimes when Mrs. Montagu,
the belle des belles of Manhattan, sat before her
toilet table, she gazed at the reflection of Mary's
soft, round, phimp arms in the mirror as they mov
ed to and fro trainiug: her hair to flow in careless
! ringlet.s. and compared them with her own mea-!
i lt3 wrists and angular elbows which needed all the !
aid. of blonde stfuharites and furbelowed kid gloves j
to render them in the slightest deeree presentable, !
with a transient pang of jealousy and envy.

And the times is cruel bad in the ould Country,
and the ould people, that's my father and my bro.h-
ers, Mrs. Montagu, they're sadly poor, and suffer
in , arid the pratee crops has u ttuid .Kin, they
say, and the folks is dying every day by thousands
and tins of thousands."
"Yes, indeed, Mary. They are terrible times,
by what we hear. The last steamer brought worse
times than ever." "
"Vis, ma'am. And the letter I'd be getting
from Maurice 1 Darby, he's my mother's sister's
husband's son, Mrs. Montagu, arid he's lived with
the ould people ever since his own folks died, and it
tould me av ever I was a going to send out for them ,
not able to profit by my good intentions. And so
seeing there's a steamer sails on Friday next for
England, I thought, av it wouldn't be giving the
master too much trouble, v he'd get me thirty
ponnds English money by next Thursd iy, that's a
hundred and fifty dollars, they tells me, ma'am, I'd
be writing them, a letter and sending the money,
so they'd all come out here right away, before the
winter does be setting in." j
"Sursh'j'Mary, surely. I will speak to Mr. ..Mon- (
tagu when he comes to dinner, and he'll be sure j
and let you have it-and I'll write the letter for you, ,
Mary, if you like," added the lady; for though vain I

merchant princes summoned Mary, and unbyr
theued her bosom to her, suggesting that the c-ye-ning
would be abuuJant tirhe to secure the passage

was written in anticipation of the money, the man

and Mrs, Montagu swept down the sunny side of

She did so, and the, good girl, though disappoint

"but we couldn't have all. we 'wished hcije be

A T the eoneJusiou of the first half-year, of toe Union
IX Magazinei the Publisher feels imneifed to make
som? aekiiowledgmeut of hi sens of the favorable re
c -ption accorded to it by the public. Its success h n
certainly been unprecedented: aiidiwhile it mav
pardonable to ascribe this in part to the merit of' the !
work, it mtu-1 not be denied that the. public good-will j
and kindness have been abundantly demonstrated. j
The press, jn all parts of the country, lias given ith
uir.v uwruiiy anu neanny in lavor ol ine new arpi
ranL To flag after this would be dislionorabie indeed.
It isihe hojie of the jmblisher that the courage and enterprise-
which belong to success will be found rather
to have stimulated than slackened his exertions. If
there be talent of a suitable kind in the country, he is
detcrmiued to make it availab e in the Uniou Mga

The Literary matter wil: continue to be under the
exclusive control of the E.Jitor, Mrs. C M. KirkJaud,
assisted by a corpa of contributors who are either esta
blished favorites of the reading public, or worthy to be
come so. The paper will bo of the sumo quality now
used ; the Fash johs wili be" colored by P. Spearing
there will be two pages of original Music in each Xo.

and intelligent, will be worth at least a year's suberip- j
