A ULUAN INCIDENT.
Exquisite Pcpita! with what kindness, and
and elegance didst thou lead thy pupil—a
tranger to thee and to thy country —through
te mazy involutions of that glorious contra
tanza! Now twining within mine tiiine arm,
ght as the eiderdown—now placing on niy
-.boulder thy beauteous and jewelled hand,
So white,so soft, so delicate, so sleek,
As thou hadst worn u lily for thy glove—
though at that moment, it was hidden by tho
bright Parisian kid, reaching nearly to thy
itntpled elbow—and with the other slightly
pressing my left arm, while my right gently*
ind tremblingly encircled thy slender waist—-
tby heavenly blue eyes half averted from my
admiring, yet respectful gaze—while round
uid round we twirled, now separating and now
meeting, and twining again together, in end
less alternations to tiie inspirating movements
of thy native music ! Ah ! how often, even
now, does thy slight, yet faultless figure glide
by mein my daily niusings and nightly dreams,
and thy beauteous, angelic, face, beaming all
intelligence, and goodness, and purity, appear
to me, as on that happy eve—now nearly
twenty years ago—when thou allowedst me,
then unknown and unintroduced, to sit besido
thee, and talk to thee of distant lands, and
question thee of thine own bright isle, and lead
thee round the circle of the giddy waltz !
It was on the first night of my arrival at
Matanzas from the Havana, in the island of
Cuba. I had not delivered my letters of in,
troduction —but hearing there was a grand
public ball in the town, I had proceeded tliith
er, and had waltzed with some of the highest
and most beautiful girls in the island—such is
the difference in the manners and customs of
The public balls here, as in the Havana, are
open to all. Persons, even of the highest dis
tinction, let their public rooms for the night to
some speculator, who lights them up for the oc
casion, the grand salons being appropriated for
dancing, and some of the small rooms for
gaming—the expenses for music, lights, and
attendance being defrayed by a small sum for
admission, generally about half a dollar. The
