Now Charlotte was actually a fasci
nating girl, and no mistake, don't. I
recollect of certain palpitations of the
heart when I first caught a glance of
her rosy face the dimples on her
cheeks ' were the play-ground of in
numerable smiles; a set of pearly
teeth were enclosed by the rosiest lips,
the blackest of eyes looked love right
straight into yours, and well, she
could just captivate any thing she wish
ed too, in that neighborhood and not
half try. . '. V . -7 !
No wonder, ybusayhat Frank was
"taken in;" well yes, it was slightly to
be wendered at, for she had 'coquetted"
several of his most intimate associates,
and he might have taken warning; but
"love laughs at opposition,", and like
wise - Frank laughed at all friendly
caution. :. -.
They were both about tho same age

Leery lesocn in Geograjhy,; described
beautiful lands, crystal streams, etc.,
where, he thought, if inhabited by him
self andinamorita, would be a Paradise.
Every sentence ho parsed, contained
scores of adiectives, such as good,
wise, charming, inimatablc, &c, which
suited his case exactly. Figures seemed
all tho time endeavoring to calculate
how many impatient days must inter
vene ere he could "take her to Lis home
and heart ".and his pen, more- active
than any thing else, busied itself in
writing "love letters.
rlhu3 the winter passed away, and
on the winding up of the school, when
the parting scene . came, a few tears
half suppressed,' added to the accumu
Lon sighs were heaved, when she
went away to boarding-school, the
nring following. Fledges ot ever
lasting-affection, from both parties, pre
vented love "from growing- cold,
during the sultry summer, an! when
she returned in autumn, every thing
"lowed before affection's sway." She
hauhtilv slighted all other admirers,
scorned advances irom all auemptea
suitors, and gave so Frank;' thought
her heart to him and him alone.
. He publicly gallanted her to Church,
to Dartics, etc., and every one in the
settlement so 7iey'said knew that
thev were engaged. Frank's cup of
lov was brim full,-but- like the maid
that "stumbled and spilt the milk'- -
accidents mialit happen.
There was to .be a party at the
village on Hallowmas Eve, and all the
voung folks in the country were m
vited; they were not only invited, but
they came, one and all,' and such a
gathering of merry hearts and happy
voices was seldom witnessed. As
matter of course Frank and Charlotte
were there; in fact he had just fitted
himself out in "upper ten" costume
for that special occasion, and had
gallanted his sweet-heart, down street
to the "scene of action," the "observed
of all observers." '-
To tell you. of all the incidents that
transpired there that night of pepper
cd and salted, roasted eggs, eaten with
grxm faces, mirror-gazing, burning-nut
shell-watching, and otner portentous
acts, on this eventually ominors night,
would be digressing. SuflSceto say that
Frank's egg, though horribly salted,
and though the sign it was intended
to pTodace came out wrong yet did not
dampen his ardor,Cnor shake his con
fidence the slightest. . . ;
A fair-haired girl, whose fate seem
cd, through the evening, to be unac
countably connected with Frank's
by virtue of a nut-shell popping ou
on the floor wa3 taken "all aback"
when Charlotte in the presence of the
company, remarked that, "she was
sorry Flora's head was set upon the
truth of the omen, for she would be
oDiigea to cusappomi ncn omens
couldn't break such tie3 as existed be
tween Tier set j and Frank." '
The remark caught . the ear it was
principally intended for Frank's
who was sitting in one corner watch
ing the sport. A. tall, awkward fellow
was sitting in an opposite corner, and
a strict observations would have de
tected . a peculiar twinkle playing in
his eyes, but he 7imsewas a good deal
peculiar hjs general anatomy, . minus
his eyes, -I mean and therefore they
only matched. It might have likewise
been noticed that a still more peculiar
twinkle played, in the corners of
Charlotte s eyes, and it all meant some
thing, no doubt probably deciphera
ble, if any of the company had notic
ed it, but thy didn't.
Well, the evening passed away, as
all evenings must, and, when the party
broke up, there was considerable con
fusion, in the bustle of adjusting caps,
hats and bonnets, and Frank's new
"beaver had somehow got mislaid.
He found it, though; in time' to take a
station at the frontdoor, in readiness
to escort Charlotte when she rcame
along. He buttoned up his coat,
drawed down bis hat rim, stood "un
commonly .upright, and gazed with
"majestic mem" upon all passers-by.
Presently she came, but Land of
Ceasar! that tall awkwark fellow's
arm Was linked with her own' in the
fondest manner! "Pleasant dreams
to night, Mr. Rogers!" said she, as
she swept by in queen-like majesty,
leaving Frank utterly confounded.
After standing there "spell-bound,"
far a quarter of an hour, during the
which. he; felt exceeding prompted , to
follow and demolish his successful
antagonist, and was only restrained
thcretrom by remembering that,
" 'Tia better far to bear the ills we have,
Than fly to others which wo know not ofY
he recovered himself, and was soon en
route for home; aided by the light rad

Within the .range of human ken,
here Is nothing that God has done so
grandly ashman. .It was his last and
his best work. The heavens and the
earth, the waters and the mountains,
he firmament and -armies of clouds,
are insignificant matters in comparison
with the meanest Hottentot that ever
stupidly gazed upon them. All the
orce ot God s heavenly army, the
bright procession of glittering stars,
wheeling in space and moving in silence
along their appointed ways; upon paths
which none can see, but from j which,
through ages, they never wander 'or
stumble therein ; the pomp of this
stellar host, bannered with light, is
transcendent. But c;ery globe is but
a huge deadncss. They neither think
nor choose, nor joy nor sorrow, pulse
less, passionless, they swing " through
the circuits struck by the hand ol uod,
for, the same reason that the shuttle
darts, or the. ball from the unconscious
bat, or the shuttlecock between two
battledores. - But, within the nearest
man, there jives a nature on; which all
eternity may work without tuliy devel
oping it.,. The intellect, the soul, the
affections they are something of God
All the universe is but the cradle, and
these elements in their lowest state, in
their rudest life, are yet in value be

We are' permitted to make the fol
lowing extracts from Doctor Kane's
recent work, descriptive of his . expe
dition to the Arctic regions, in search
of Sir John Franklin:
The next day gave us admirable
progress. The ice opened in leads be
fore us, somewhat tortuous, but, on the
whole, favoring, and for sixteen hours
I never left the helm. We were all of
us exhausted when the day's work
came to a close. Our allowance had
been small from the first; but the delays
we seemed fated to encounter had made
me reduce them to what I then thought
the minimum quantity six ounces of
Dread-dust, and a lump of tallow the
size of a i walnut. A paste or broth
made of these before setting out in the
morning, and distributed occasionally
through the day, in scanty rations, was i
our only tare. W e were all of us glad
when, running the boats under the lee
of a berg, we were able to fill our
kettles with snow, and boil up for our
restorative, tea. . I may remark that,
under the circumstances of most pri
vation, I found no comfort so welcome
to the party as this.- We drank im
moderately of it, and always with ad
While the men -slept, after their
weary - labor, M'Gary and , myself
climbed the berg for a view ahead.. . It
was a saddening one. We had lost
sight of Cary Island; but shoreward,
up Wostcnholme Channel j the ice
seemed as if it had not yet begun to
yield to the influences of summer.
Everything showed how intense the
last winter had been. . We were close
upon the first of July, and had a right

The: next day's progress ' wa3, of
course, slow and wearisome,- -pushing
through alternate ice and water for the
land-belt. We fastened at last to the
great .floe near the shore, making our
harbor in a -crack ; which epened with
the changes of tide. ' v
The imperfect diet of the party was
showing itself . more and : more in the
decline of their muscular power. They
seemed scarcely aware of it themselves,
and referred the difficulty they found
in' dragging and pushing to .something
uncommon about the ice or smdge,
rather than to their own weakness:
But) as we endeavored to renew our
labors through the morning fog, belted
in on all side3 by ice-fields so distort

cross them, the truth seemed to burst

upon every one. ve nad lost tnc
feeling of hunger, and were almost
satisfied with ,our pasty broth and the
large droughts of-tea which accom
panied it. I was anxious to send our
small boat, the Eric, across tho lumme
hill of Appah, where I knew from the
Esquimaux we should find plenty of
birds; but the strength. of the party
was insufficient to drag her. -
We were sorely disheartened, and
could only ; waif for the fog to rise, in
the 'hope of some smother, 'platform
than that which was about us, or some meeting, and gives the following amus
lcad that might save u3 the painful account of the disjointed convcr-
labor of track. I had climbed the ice
berg: and there was nothing in view
except Dalrymple Rock, with its red
brassy, face towering in the unknown
distance. 'But I hardly got back to
my boat bcforera gale struck us from
the north-west, and a floe, taken upon
a, tongue .of ice about a. mile to the
north of us, began ,to swing. upon it
like a pivot, and close slowly in upon
At first our own floe, also, was driven
before the wind, -hue in' a little while
it encountered the stationary ice at
the foot of the very rock itself. On
the instant the wildest imaginable ruin
rose around us. The men sprang
mechanically each one to his station,
bearing back the boats' and stores; but
I gave up .for the moment all hopes of
Our escape. It was not a nip, sucii as
is familiar to the Arctic navigators;
but. the whole platform where we stood?
and for hundreds of yards on. every
side of us, crumbled, and crushed, and
piled itself, and tossed, madly under
the pressure. I do not. believe" that
of our little body of men, all of them
disciplined in trials, able to measure
danger while combating it I do not
believe there is one who this day can
explain how or why hardly when, in
fact wo found ourselves afloat, Wc
only know that in the midst of a clamor
utterly indescribable, through which
the' braying of a thousand trumpets
could no . more nave been heard than
the voice, of a man, we were shaken,
and raised, and whirled, and let down
again in a swelling waste of broken
hummucks, and, as the men grasped
their boat-hooks, in the stillness that
followed, the boats eddied away in a
tumultuou3 skreed of ice and snow
We were borne along in this manner
as long as the unbroken remnant of
the in-shore floe continued revolving,
utterly powerless, : and catching a
glimpse every now and then of the
brazen headland that looked down on
us through the showy sky. At last
the floe brought up against the rocks,
the looser fragments that hung round
it began to separate, and wc were able,
by oars and boat-hooks, to force our
battered little flotilla clear of them.-
To our joyful surprise, wo soon found
ourselves in a stretch of the land
water wide enough to give us rowing
room, and with the assured promise of
land close ahead.
- As we ncared it, wo saw the same
forbidding wall of belt-ice as at Souther
land and Hakluyt. We pulled along
its margin, seeking in vain cither an
opening of access or a nook of shelter.
Tho gale rose, and the ice began to
drive again; but there was nothing to
be done but get a grapnel out to the
belt and hold on for the rising tide. a
The Hope stove her bottom and lost
part of her weather-boarding, and all
the boats were badly chafed. It was
an awful storm; and it was not with

afloat, bailing out the scud that broke
over us, and warding off the ico with

up; and, us. .we pushed the boats into
it on1 an even keel,5 the rocks seemed
to close above our heads, till an abrupt
turn in the course of the ravine placed
a protecting cliff between us and the
gale..' We were completely encaved.
J"ust as we had brought in the last
boat, the Red Eric, and were shoring
her up with blocks of ice, along-unused
but familiar and unmistakable sound
startled and gladdened every ear, and
a flock of eiders, flecking the sky for
a moment,, passed swiftly , in front of
us. We knew that we must be at
their breeding grounds andas wc
turned in wet and hungry to our long
covctcd sleep, it was only to dream of
eggs and abundance. . - -' - ' ,
. We remained almost three days in
our crystal retreat, gathering eggs at
the rate of twelve hundred a day.
Outside, the storm raged without in-
tcrmissiou, rind our egg-hunters found
it ' difficult to keep their ' feet; but a
merrier set of gourmands than were
gathered within never surfeited in
On the 3d of July the wind began
to moderate, though the snow still fell
heavily; and the next morning, after
a patriotic egg-nog, the liquor borrow
