B . SH Z .£<m S D MXSOBZJC.AN'Sr. EVENTS OF A TEA-PARTY. “ IMan pleases not me, nor woman neither.” It is an unfortunate trait in the charac­ ter of many individuals that they can never be pleased. Not all the allurements of pleasure, the blandishments of flattery, the seductive charms o f beauty, or the at% traction of social sympathy or friendship, can ever draw forth ,a smile from the gloomy countenances, or impart an hour’s contentment to the callous hearts of|hese surly children of discontent. Such a one am I. Selfish in my disposition, to an ex­ treme, and dead to all the genial and sooth­ ing influences which humanise and enten- der more susceptible minds, I will scarcely confess to myself that any extraneous ohr ject is capable of affording me any gratifi­ cation. Hence it is that 1 am inclined to censoriousness, and that I frequently as­ sume a certain moroseness of temper which does not render my presence at all times and in all places the most agreeable, and which, 1 verily fear, would procure my banishment from all societf, but that I am •possessed of a certain income and own a calculating cynic I aim L 1 instantly forgt^ every other purpose but that of counting the probable sums*’which my. cousins were ' expending.' Iii doing Ibis, I beg ..you^ gentle reader, do not thipk ^that there. i$ to be any reversion in my favor. W in tb'dt o f my children, in case of the probabje death of one of these fair cousinsi^ No i they are young, healthij, dekendeii .front long-lived ancestors, ahd~-^poor. ' At this stage of my reflections I m s interrupted, by the entraypee of one o f * ia ir relatives i and here, after a moment’s, involuntary offering, in ray mind’s eye, to her personal charms,. I fouad choice and fresh incentiva to my niggardly surmises! Flounees. up* on flounces trebling the price o f the ori|io-* al gown, belts of many colours eUcirclin^ the tapering, slender waist, and bound by a sparkling clasp in front. Oh! I forgot the beauty of the waist, as I had just over­ looked the pretty ankle and the small foot 1 —and then the lace around her snowiihitc bosom, and the necklace, too!—’twas, all in all to me. I glanced, coldly on hrer,cOal- black eye, whose bend could tanie a sa-^ vage soul, aye, and the ravgn locks of her long dark hair—-all were lost to ine, itheti above towered a head-dress of brilliant hue and costly price, 'and still above, thd backbone of a huge and monstrous combi the price of which would have given the—^ board and lodging for a week, in ffecent quarters. A fair lady now disturbed, my selfish reverie, and aroused my attention, for a moment, to what was due to thosfe around me. W # Hilkcd of a variety of, subjects on literature and po1itife,^;&d X was about being deeply iuterested m soinef remarks which she had begun upon the importance* of fugitive essays in a Maga­ zine ; when in: came Blacky with a spa­ cious waiter, bearing oh its ample surlac^ cups o f coffee and tea, the smoke from which barely dimmed the lustre o f a jarge silver teapot, flanked by a sdgar-disH and milk-pot of the same m et?^’ Isighedi as my thoughts roved to the sad condition o f the poor mechanic fr^m, whoih ‘their plate had been taken, “ certainly not bought,’’ quoth I. But for once my fears were aD layed; as the splendid* Chargers wet& brought by the sooty Ganymede near to my person, I recognized the coat of arm.# of Simon the broker. Well, well; this i§ not quite so bad. Next came a raaypold girl of twenty, with a second waiteil-^ There was profusion 1—I thought the shop^ of Poppleton and JItoes had been tfans^ ferre<|^to my cousins’ apartments with '^ili their contents— plumb-cake, and flubens-^ cak§, and pound-cake, and spongc-ckke,' and in short, every cake on which the im^» agination o f a bon'vivant could dwell with rapture, and bis palate feast with ecsiacys This was but a beginning, howeVef-*^ mere promise of what was still behind.^ Not Tom Moore, in his description of thtl Feast of tbe Veiled Prophet, nor Jemmy Thompson in his Castle o f Indolehc^,- had so charmed my conception o f sensual blissf^ as my fair cousins, by their real exhibiiiott of ices, blanc manges, floating islands, cor^^ dials, and wines, and lemonades, afOnsed my avariciously inclined soiil to depredate pretty estate, which is altogetherat avariciously inclined soul to depreeate own disposal, when 1 cease from trouhiinlpbejr extravagance and luxury. Do m rr^._ 1 ---- . « r ---- “ hink, however, that I carried my mOfoSd disposition so far as not to partake o f th A goodly cheer. No—-I condemned, but lik'^ my neighbours I feasted on another’s folly — and to such a degree, that I was fain id take my friend Dr. Le Gcour’§ advice^ and drench with large dfaugMs of c h ain^ild tea the next morning. But to return td my cousins—^thought I, .to what tvill iC tend 1 what game is to he played o# This recalled me to one of the objects I bad in view* in visiting the scene befote me, I turned to my coosia Leejnofa, and asked her who that gentleman was; sitting next to her sister Polly 1 ” Why,” said she, don't you know that is Mr. Fiddle- strings from the Smith 7 He is a Very rich young man, and, they say, he is going td get married in NeW-York-^on’t you think him very handsome 7 —oh! he ii beautL ful!” I had scarcely time to utter a reply, ;When this very handsome, rich stranger afose-^pleaded the inbst urgent biisinesfi and bis early departure from towotbe nexfr morning, in excuse for bis goings Bufi you will return to spebd soipe tim« ^dlil us 1” “ No, madam ; from the Springs 1 go to Boston, and thence to EUropc/^^ Here was dolefnl news indeed 1 I thought m wm ^ poor cousins tvould burst their* M i f ts with crying—\ Oh I the mender} , l | | p t for this we gave a partV-i-spent alX * tM ^ d o ey. we cotild mcister, and a Ifttld more which tre bOrrowed-riS it for this j ^ -^ o h ! ob i oh r ’^ D early they pay for it,* poor girls.*^ I left fhefti,' thinking • Goldsmith; .

The onfy return I ever *make to those who thus di-ag me from my obscurity, is ic^ o m m e n t on tbeir follies or laugh at their weaknesses i and as some of these coffloiehts may not be UBiDteristing lo thereadep of this instructive miscella­ ny, 1 propose at once to vent my spleen and make myself useful by relating at times the result o f my experience andthe fruits of my solitary meditation. I cannot withhold from myself the acknowledgment, that I may thus* make myself a useful, al­ though I am debarred from being an agree­ able, iqpmber o f the commiinily. On^returning to my rooms last evening, I found a billet on my desk, TviHb gilt edges, from my cousin’s in ----- r street, contain­ ing a very polite invitation to spend the evening with them. “ Poor, deluded girls!” aid I, \ another speculation must be on foot;—some stranger must have arrived ; handsome, rich, in short, a look out; well, ril go and see what's doing.” About eight, I went, according to'my invitation, n^at and trim dressed as a beau, ascended to. the head of the room, and made a bow to the old lady—another to the right, and a third to the left, and took my seat. ** For­ tunately for me, 1 was shaded by a projec­ tion of the chimnly-plece, so thay[ could better see than be seen.
