The speakers were two young sportsmen in the highlands of Scotland, who wearied by a long day's shooting, were approaching a hill-side spring, famous in that wild district for the coldness and pureness of its waters. They had just reached the brow of the felevation overlooking the rural fountain, when the sight of a young girl, in the first blush of womanly beauty, sitting by the spring, drew these ejaculations from them in succession. As they spoke they stopped, by a common impulse, to gaze on the fair vision a moment bcr fore it should be dissipated,' which they manly countenance as the sun ever shonfe upon; and perhaps she thought so, for the blush again came to her cheek. Thes features were cast in a-lofty, almost heroic mold, and were indicative of a charac$|>| at once firm and elevated, a soincthngif above the mere fine gentleman, which wip] evidently his social rank. }-"! T- ^ 1 "He breathes still," she safd, at Sue; broke off a delicate leaf from one of tire: lilies and held it to his nostril; and, lbok^ ing at his companion, she continued : you think you could carry Iiim t<* t||| spring?" The sportsman answered by carefully-lifting his friend up in his arms and bealR ing him down the'hill-side, the young jj*ifl following. "Place himliere," she said, pointing to the slightly elevated bank, "and lean his head against the rock. "Everything' she continued, "now Jepends on yonr getting a surgeon soon. If you wills fol^ low the path to your right around thie turn of the hill, you will find our cabin. There is a pony there which you can take; and ride to Abernethy, some five miles off, where, fortunately, a surgeon may b'e; had. At the cabin you will find a shepherd or two —tell them to bring some bedclothes and a settee on which to carry your frfcud to the house. It is an humble place, bu||better than the hill-side. Byj the time ycu get back with the surgeon we shall have your friend in a comfortable; bed, and I hope "doing better. She spoke with so quick a perceptio^ of what was best vo be done, and did it so composedly, that the sportsman, >vh6 had expected to see her frightened antf embarrassed, was lost in admiration, aril submitting himself entirely to her guiak; ance, hastened to execute her commis; When he had vanished around the 1® the young girl took some water in hei" hands, and began to bathe the face'o: wounded man. But lie still lay inseril^ ble. After having persisted iri her ti for some time,-without any signs of lift being perceptible, the tears began to fi thick and fast from her lovely eyes. "Alas," she said, "he is dead! W.h he has a mother, or one dearer still):|fet^ yet but half to hour ago lie was in the full strength of health and manhood, cannot be—I have heard," she eagerly, as if a sudden thought struck her, and ?lie began, to jearopen vest, to get at -the WQJ CM ortsmari would coiue out. ;by, dpctor," she said, giving her the' dignity of a countess, soft-the kindliness of an affectionate fiat you tell me will make me tef. I share good Mrs. Colin's" ||ight, having given up my own ||the; sick inan; but if you will iere to-night we will yield it to you |^,the fire." e," said the old man, kindly |fcer toward the door of the other g room; "I stay here, indeed, for fee wanted; but I'm an old cam-uer, and liae slept.inony a night under oakj with the bonny stars above me; i/io such as me, a settle and a chimney jiae great cross now and then." next day the wounded man was Enounced better, but still in a very crit- 1 Situation, and his removal was ex-old surgeon.. ^ lYe maun keep him here a while yet, sie" he said, addressing Helen; "and almost persuaded ye'll ha'e to be his ie. He has nae sisters or motlier to I fo]t, it seems; and men are very ^ nurses, ye ken. Mrs. Colin is here, ill nae doubt help; but ye maun be nurse, niaist of the time yeerself. ii, aweel, don't look frightened ; 'tis i^can't be helped." Hi so,- Helen, timid and embarrassed, d, from the urgent necessity . -case, t& attend on the wounded y?* Sis friend indeed remained to as-i |n nursing him, but the invalid, with si whim of a sick man, soon began to medicines, unless administered nd of Helen, and sweetened by r|^^|^inlle» Moreover, until the danger l^f(jver, his: friend watched every night " consequence re-day for rest, as necessarily left alone, for hours, fcjtfie wounded man. .The surgeon, for first two weeks, came every day to his patient; but,, after ..this, visited SSfess frequently.

Nor did Helen long continue to resist his pleadings. She loved him, indeed, only too well, as she all along confessed to her own heart. Still, even when brought to half acknowledge that he had a place in her heart, she would not promise to be his without a condition. He argued long and earnestly, but her answer was always the same. „ ' ' "We must part for a year," she said. "You think now, with the memory of your illness fresh upori you, that you love me; but I am come of too hauglity a blood, though poor now, to marry even where I might love, on so sudden and questionable— excuse me, for I must speak plainly —so sudden and questionable an attachment. You are rich, fashionable, and with influence; I am the last of a line proscribed ever since Culloden. Your place is the gay World, where you will be surrounded by troops of friends; mine is in the humble cabin, where a few poor dependents have been my only companions ever since my father died. If you really love me, you Avill return at the end of the year; and if you forget me"—her lip quivered, but she went on—"if you forget me, I shall live here, with the heather and mnir-cock, as I have lived before." > - J Her lover Was therefore compelled to submit. But think you he honored and adored her less for her resolution? No, he worshipped her the m^re for it. There was a proud independence in her banishment of him which became, he said to himself, the daughter of chieftains who had fought at Bannockburn and Flodden Field, and sacrificed their all at Culloden. Two weeks from that time Donald and his friend left the Highland cabin, and Helen was alone. Never before had she known what it was to be really alone. She continually missed the presence of that manly eye, the deep tones of that manly voice. She never knew how much she loved till her lover was away. But even a year will pass, and just a twelve-month from Donald's departure Helen sat at the spring side, which she had named for the try sting spot if her lover proved faithful. She'had been there already for many hours, watching with with an eager, timid heart, half trembling at her own folly in expecting him, half angry with herself for her do.ubts f but. tfee ^6ainiri& ^ame^o -:o:- "fir MVii Wholesale and Retail.

The attitude was one of nature's own choosing, and graceful in the extreme, as all such careless postures are. The figure of the maiden was slight and sylpli-like, yet exquisitely proportioned; nor could Canova have modeled a bust of more undulating outline, or a rounder and fairer arm. But after all, it was the face that fixed the young men's attention. A shade of pen-si veness hung over it for the time, as if a gentle melancholy took part in the reverie of the young girl; but from the mirthful blue eye and the dimples of the * chin," it was plain to see that the usual expression was one of happiness and glee. Her hair was golden in color, and flowed in natu: ral ringlets on her shoulders. The small delicately closed mouth; the nose, that rivaled in straightness that of a Grecian Venus, and the clear, brilliant complexion, formed together a breathing picture of female loveliness, such as no ideal painting could have rivaled. 'See, was I not right?" said the last of the two speakers, in a whisper to his companion. "She has been gathering lilies; there are some still in her hand, and a bunch nestles in her bosom, but only to be outvied by the purity around it." "Yes, Donald, she is more than an angel—she is a peerless Scottish lass—a lily of the valley indeed. What a pity so much beauty was not noble-born!" "Tush!" replied his companion, impatiently; "Burns says:' • 'The rank is but the guinea stamp, ; The man's the gowd for a' that;' and, to my thinking, a lovely woman is ii born countess, at least if she has graces of mind equal to those of person. But let us descend." He had been leaning carelessly on his gun as lie spoke, and now, preparatory to proceeding, threw it to his shoulder. Unfortunately the trigger had canght in a bramble, and the piece went off, lodging its contents in his side. He staggered and fell. "Good heavens!" cried his companion, springing to his assistance, and lifting the wounded man up. "Are you killed? Do you hear me, Donald? Mercifbl Father !'rlie exclaimed, as he saw no sign of life in tiis Mend, "what shall we do? He is dead or dyingj and no aid to be had for'miles I" J The young girl we have described had been buried in a profound reverie, but at the report of the gun she started like a frightened bird, looking wildly around to see whence it proceeded. In a moment, she caught sight of the wounded man lying on the heather above her, while his friend, kneeling on one knee, supported the head of the sufferer. Immediately that the sportsman saw the girl was watching him, he shouted and waved Ills, hand for help. When was woman's ear ever deaf to the call of suffering? The timid Scottish maiden, who but a moment before was on tihe point of flying, now turned and began to ascend the hillside, Jieet and graceftil as a young doe. : j "My poor Mend," said the sportsman," politely doffing his hat as she approached, "has met with an pnfortnnate accident, and I do not kndw what tor do . ^ ifrheie •to bear him.'* A deep _ but it passed off immediately, case liele?'' _ ^ ^ ^ She had by this tini£ bured suffi^l^ his person to get at. the orifice of wound; The dark gore had almost sti fened about it. She gazed at if"an instant^ the tears falling fast iu womanly syjhplk thy, and then a sudden idea seemed Ira; strike lier. She stooped down, and.teij* derly approaching the wound, commence Aviping away the congealed blood. ;,;J She lm<J not been long engaged in her task of mercy when the wounded man stirred, and opening his byes, fixed ithem earnestly upon her. ' She started from her kneeling posture covered with beautiful confusion. For'a while the sense of maidenly shame even-overcame her joy at his recovery, and she could not meet his gaze. r„>,- "Where am I?" he inquired, for memory was yet vague. "What splr. from Heaven are you? Ah, I remember-^ my gun went off. But where is-lfa*i*,1>" The young girl had now in a m recovered from her embarrassment. "If you mean your friend," she sa^ half timidly, and in a voice that sound to the ears of the sufferer inexpressibly sweet, "he is gone for a surgeon. I have* consented to watch by yon till some shepf herds come to carry yon to our cabin ir an hour or is friend, when the in.- Fthus far convalescent, took to : agaiff, and went out for game; fdf#O itelen and her guest were frequent- !jl£ne "together. tfefk hot to be supposed that this inti wggbetweeu two congenial spirits could oil-without love, on one side at least shall I ever thank you sufficiently, 33 sltefc?" said Donald one day, looking at r^fbndly. "I have never dared to allude itsftice, though I have thought of it jftfty,times daily; but your presence of tfd^'when I was dying by the spring. P And here they come, Heaven be blessed;K| || she exclaimed, clasping her hands, equally^ glad to conclude this embarrassing tete-fo tete, and to see the wounded man placed in a situation of more comfort. "Heaven bless you!" with emphasis, giving brought the blushes again to her <Jb»int|| nance. "You have saved my life." In a few moments the wounded mail: was placed on a settee brought by th$; shepherds, and the little cavalcade,'W ed its way toward the cabin. The maideii Walked, last, and by her side stett the two dogs of the "sufferer;; dumb animals, with a sense almost human| as if . appreciating her kindness to their master, looked up afi'ectionately into, hei^ face every few steps. The cabin was like those existing ev> where in the Highlands—a rude but cfeeei^ j, fttl habitation, but was both larger |than / usual, and adornkl with more The wounded man, as lie was borne intdfe an inner chamber, of which the house apparently at least two, noticed.

' ^ e as if to depart. j-for Heaven's sake liear-me," aver, detaining her; "hear me 'v'&Re%o*d more. Since the hoot out; the wind-grew chill; and with, an almost broken heart she rose to return to .the cabin. Her tears were falling fast. "I might have known this," she said sadly. "Do not all my books tell me the same? Ever the old story of trusting woman and deceiving man." At this instant an arm was thrown around her waist, and a well-remembered voice whispered in her ear, "Now, Helen dear, one of ouf cruel sex, at least, is falsified. I thought-to steal on you unawares and surprise you, and so went round by the cottage to leave my horse there! Had you looked behind, instead of before you, you would have frustrated my little scheme by seeing me coming up the gloaming." Whajt could she say? She said nothing, but burying her face on his shoulder, wept glad tears. . . ' 'I have waited a whole year impaifenflf' for this day," said he; "thank Heaven find you mine at last." A month from that time Sir Donald Alleyne introduced his bride to his ample domains in England; and never had a' fairer wife entered the splendid halls of his ancestors. , * * J .M * . * In the great gallery of the castle is a picture of a young Scottish girl, with a half-pensive face, sitting by a mountain spring ; and the old house-keeper as she goes the rounds with visitors, pauses" be fore the portrait to say : "That is the likeness of the last Lady Alleyiie; and lovely she was, and as good as lovely. By her husband, the late baronet, she was always called the Lily of the Valley. Why, I have never heard."
