When the eiu'th is elad in raiment of verdure, her brea&t teeming with the most luburiant flowers, wooed by the sweet- sceuted zephyrs, while the meek-rtSed stars tend to increase tbe sweet and calm loVjRiness breath ing everywhere. Such a night was it on which (no fashionable people of Egleston gathered together in tbe mag­ nificent parlors of Mrs. Roseborougii, The dance and the sumptuous supper were past, the;last guest had taken his departure, while the tired ser­ vants’ hearts beat with joy. as the last guest said farewell at bis departure—that which td others was joy and pleasure, to tho servant ossttmed tbe grim aspect of work and fatigue. ; Still one fair being remained, striding motion­ less, as if strength had left her limbs—Grace Har­ wood, tbe beautiful stepdaughter of Mrs, Bosebor- ough—etill leaned against, or near fan open bay window, the fresh breezes playing Rrith her gold­ en ringlets, casting them forward find backward from her brow, whore the finger ot Badness indeli­ bly stamped an expression of woe. wliich sadly contrasted with the happiness her street, angolic face wore one short hour before, /Qb! why this sudden revolution of happiness to t W o ? Gould you bu| look into the deCpJiidden recess of her heart and see the busy thoughts conjuring up the recollections of the past, while the memo­ ries of the blissful days came quick and fast upon ber soul, entirely losing hep conBcibusucss of the present. Then she saw herself a,happy, merry child, gathering sweet flowers off the lea, or catch­ ing the sunbeam into her tiny Iiand from the little forest brook’s breast, or receiving a fond kiss from her mother’s lips; alas ! too soon closed iu death. Again with memory she wandered back to the shores of childhood, wandering hand in Hfind with her fond companions whom she loved with- a sis­ terly affection. Associated with these memories was one which sent the rich blush to her pale fea­ tures, causing her heart to beat nervously; a fi­ gure of a youth centered .in the dreqms of joy and hope, one whom she loved Tar better in those in­ nocent days than life itself. 1 ■ From amid the silken curtaino a, young man hastily crossed to where Grace stood, who, as her­ self, nntil then remained motionless, catching the thoughts which agitated her, from the expression of her blue eyes exclaiming: : “ So, Grace, yon have bartered tyour heart for the golden bubble of wealth. You who were ouce so childlike and simple have dashed the cup of happiness from your lipsjto drink the golden wine of woe. Oh! Grace, is it trne, then, that yon are to marry George Stratford, Whom yetf have known hnt a few short weeks; cap if be, tell me, or must I learn to detest and feel a want of confidence in your sex ? Oh, woman! why arqvou Bo change­ able, turning the heart of true {eve into die bitter gall. ' “ Henry, have pity on my poor heart. Oh, do not speak so harsh. Oh, my God ii I cannot bear it. It is so long since I have known a truly sym­ pathetic heart—one that wenld lovu and tore for te, not lectio As she spoke,' A s she spoke, tbe Mautum uraOe looked her Companion fall in the face witbhbe e f those timid looks which should elicit onr sympathy as well as friendship. Yet she fouitd ao tympatby in those cold, gray eyes of Henry, H is features Were marked, with a harabncs*, and ho shrank from the tremulous hand so lightly Md on hia ahoolder, “ Grace, I am more ynnr-fiiend thAAyoaautici- mem than them who- fettor And hew tho but I cannot conceal tbe deep grief you f tellccts on the beauties of its unsurpassed scenery, have caused me by your treatment toward my |its paintings, and works of sculpture. While knee; friend Edward Liviugston, You havo destroyed the fine thread of confidence and esteem existing between us. Oh, Graeo, have you no heart 1— You are not true to yourself.\ “ I did not play Edwin’s heart falso,’* she said, vainly struggling to repress the tears which did well into her sorrowful eyes. ** He cliose to for­ get mo. Must I then, go on my bended knee and sue for his love, or ask him back to worship me again 1\ “ Surely ono cannot censure him for e n d e a r ­ ing to forget you, Grace. Was it because he did not love you ? Oh, n o ; simply because the spir­ it of coquetry, which is your life, prompted you to seek and caress every new and handsome faee, to sell your affections for the time being, to traffic for flatteries in all, to make your lover miserable; and you cared not how miserable you made him, provided you could Batisfy your gratification— your vanity. Him you might have easily won back. Just one look would have brought him to your foot; but you would not. His heart was too simple a victory to please your coqaetty. Fare­ well, Grace.” Ere she could collect her scattered senses and bewildered thoughts, he left tho room, and Bhe seated herself upon the nearest seat, looking more haggavd aud careworn than over, and burst into a fit of weeping. Weeping for what ? The affec­ tions, the fond hopes she destroyed in another heart, or weeping because shli saw tho wreck, her heart was strewn like so many feathers in the air, carried here and there by the winds, never, again to be brought together in tho hallowed fellowship of love. Who can answer ? AU the tender and excitable passions of love, woe, and remorse seized alternately upon hor, and her thonghts were a wild chaos of wretchedaess. “ Oh 1 that I had gone mad 1 that I had died 1 for there is no one on earth to hold the hand of pity to my burning heart. All! all are my ene­ mies ! none to soothe, none to comfort me in my great affliction.” The attendant, waking from her sweet, deep sleep, starting up, heard somo of the fragmentary sentences uttered by Grace, and naistakiug her pleadings the causo of grief occasioned by soon leaving her father’s roof, said gently : “ Do not fret, Miss Ilarwood j all .storms are followed by tho warning sunshine. “ A h ! my child,” opoke Grace, “ you know not what- yod speak. No sunshine can ever this heart.' The wretchedness of woe has seized upon my heart, and there it lives. If I put one from the other both must die.” away on this journey, Grace found that God had boeu good to her in giving her such a true husband, while all the mischievous coquetry had fled her heart, nud trutli finds her a true woman, she hav­ ing been placed in tha crueciblo of experience, and, like tho true gold, found, not wanting* _ A few days after their child was born, a sweet little babe, which cast sunshine over its parents’ hearts—the link which binds husband aud wife closely together in love. It was then at the birth of their child that Grace told her beloved husband, of the early errors of her fickleness, aud of tjiqj deep woe her heart was no stranger to, ■ ' , ‘ “ God bo praised!” said her husband; ‘‘Vjju. have grown into a true woman, aud passed through the fire, which oftimes leaves its mark upon thtf heart.\ * Many years have passed sinco tho marriage of Grace, and a happier household is not to bo found.. -Although the gray hairs of Winter are every now, and then showing themselves amid her raven tres-) ses, lier heart is Btill youthful, ever open—at whose gates Chaiity watches, stretching forth her hand, to the needy, bringing consolation into ipauy a heart, while the neighboring poor pray for Moth-' er Grace, as they call her, in their daily prayers.’ Her life, once a Spring of bitterness, has ripened into the Summer and Autumn of happiness, while faith and charity never leave the household of Graeo, Tiie Growth of Trout. * Trout kept ia ponds will average a pound, whep! a few months over thrco years old, if well fed.— They are like pigs iu more rospects than in giee-' diuess iu their disposition to eat offal for their in­ crease will be in proportion to tlio amount of food! given. A respectable old gentleman, who, I think would not “ fib,\ tells me lie has had them of font pounds, when as many years old; but they had the run of the spring house, receiving many a spoonful of cream thrown to them in removing moats, much curd, many worms which his boys fed to them, aud the whole population of many a big caterpillars’ nest cut from a limb in his or­ chard ; as well as young wasps and hornets, Per centra to this, a trout will live in the bottom of a well, or in a spring, without being fed, for years,1 aud show no growth. In stocking my ponds in New Jersey, several o f my trout received unniis- takablo marks which they never get rid of; two come to of these, which were not over eight or nine inches long, and not over five or six ounces in weight, grow to thirteen inches in length before they had boon in their adopted home a year. They werq “ My dear Miss Harwood, what troubles you very stout, and doubtless weighed a pound. Hern that you should be so unhappy 1 Nothing that I , the weight was more than doubled iu a year. Mr, can see. Your future happiness, your prospect of life is fine, surrounded by all that wealth can bes­ tow j and I trust that you will find your husband, Mr. George Stratford, kind and indulgent, which, however, I think I need havo uo trouble on that score, for his goodness of heart is revealed by his looks. So dry your beautiful eyes, as to-morrow is the wedding-day, and your eyes must not ap­ pear so red and swollen. The morrow came in all loveliness, the bright­ ened suu of June threw from his eye of gold hia golden rays of harmony, the birds sang their ma- Ainsworth stocked a pond near West Bloomfield, N. Y., with fry, as soon as the umbilical sac was absorbed, and three years after caught them weigh­ ing two pounds. In stocking a pond for angling; on Dong Island, a friend of tho writer brought yearling trout not over five inches long; tho fol­ lowing spring, say in twelvo months, they were about file von niches long, weighing a full half pound j in twelve raontliB more they had grown to average fourteen ounces^; some of them weighed more than a pound.

But tho seat gave vent to tears of anguish which were foe which it is most difficult to protect the fish asleep within her heart. ^ I from, is the species of heron alluded to, Though Grace, my own beloved Grace, said her has-! not numerous, these wading birds, when they havd band, are you not happy, or do you not weep for j found a feeding place so well stocked, may come joy..

Her life heretofore passed beforo her as a vision, and. with God’s help, she saw tho deep and untruthful life that she had been living, fraught only With a wretchedness not only to herself, but for all who should come, in proximity to her beau­ ty ; and, praying to God with the lips of her heart, asked for strength to contbat the evil which was destroying her pure affections, and, casting^ a blight over ber life. Life to her had new duties since the ring of marriage had been placed on. her finder in the sight of God and his angels, aud aB light succeeds tho darkness, bo a new heavenly light broko on her vision. After her httsband had spoken in tones of pity to her poor and afflicted heart, she cast her arme about his neck, and looking from tho depths of his eyes into, his heart, she saw that his was no passing love, and, kissing him, she cried; Oh, Goidl give mo strength, and hear with me 1” ghe wad a changed being from this time forth. To dispel the slight gloom which still hovered o’er Grace’s life, her husband, thinking travel might .have a beneficial effect, caught his dear Grace in his arms one day, asking her how qho Would fancy a journey to the Btmny land of Italy. Of conreo Grace consented, and they passed some six months in that sanity clime, admiring the fes- tivitito hf Ittaffan lffc, fading thcit hearts and iu. tront.
