Xy The Subscriber begs leave to call the

or mode of Tin Roofing, which is believed i
to be equal to all others in neatness, du
rability and strength. I confidently assert that
there is no Roofing material in use equal to Tin,
when well put on. It is perfectly fire-proof,
more substantial and cheaper than shingles, be
cause more durable, .nsurance is saved, and great
risks avoided; as at least two-thirds of’the num
ber of buildaigs consumed in largo conflagra
tions, first take fire niton the roofs.
Having made ample arrangements for Roof
ing, and secured the services of first-rate work
men, experienced in the business, 1 am well pre
pared t a contract with companies or individuals,
throughout the State, or any of the adjoining

Unequalled to the sea—
Thy hilts and valleys bloom with health.
And green with verdure be!
Yet not for thy proud ocean-streams,

Sweet Sunny South!—l cling to tlice—
Thou art my native-home!
I’ve stood ‘beneath Italia’s clime,
Beloved of tale and song—
On Ilelvyu’s lulls, proud and sublime,
Where NatuU’s wonders throng—
By Tempe’s classic sun-lit streams,
Where gods, of old did roam,
lint ne’er have found so fair a land
As thou—my native home!
And thou hast prouder glories too.

Peace sheds o’er thee her genial dew,
And freedom’s pinions wave—
For Science flings her pearls around,
Religion lifts her dome—
These, these endear thee to my heart—.

And grace and goodness circle them—

How can I, then while loving them,
Not love my native home?

Then here’s a health to thee!

To save liis native home!

LINK THE FIRST.
OR THE MYSTERIOUS GOVERNESS.
BVT MISS C. W. BAKU Ell.
“To every guest the appropriate speech was
And every duty with distinction paid.”
Miss Church made her appearance at
length, at the table, and in the public
rooms. She came down looking pale
and weak. The Doctor, who sat just op
posite her at the table, greeted her with
I one of liis best smiles and bows—his
amiable wife, and pretty daughter, both
bade her a cordial welcome. Cousin
Fred too was glad to see her. So he
said, and he said it in a calm manner
which I detected at once was entirely
assumed. He was more than glad; he
,was rejoiced in liis innermost spirit. He
j .sat next to her, he helped her (o the
jhi ;t temprin i dishes placed before us
j and conversed of her indisposition, and of
the proposed excursion to the ruins.
Every now and then, I suw Fannv
Bates glancing at our party. She did not
seem to hoar.the compliments which Mr.
Maroon, the dark kicking widower, was
continually paying her about her horse
manship, her sketching—indeed every
thing in which she had participated at
all, it seemed, quite charmed him.
“ Shall l help you to some of these
pickled cherries, Miss Fanny ?” he asked
as the servant handed the fruit.
“Not anv, 1 thank yon, Mr. Maroon,
I am abundantly helped for the present.’’
“ Miss Fanny, excuse me, but you are
not eating anything. Here, waiter, hand
the euemnhers. I have heard it affirmed,
Miss Fanny, that young ladies never re
i fuse pickles.”
“ Which affirmation is uat entirely
correct, as I am proving to you,” said
the hello, carelessly tossing back her
curls. “ T don't eat pickles, Mr. Maroon
—perhaps the lady across the table will
however take some. The servant can pass .
them to her.”
“ I might have known, Miss Fanny, in
deed T bog your pardon for not knowing
i it —you have nothing to do wi h any
thing so acrid; sour things are foreign to
your nature.” j
The beauty bowed slightly at what
was evidentv intended for a great eom
plimenb “ No,” said she “ I detest
things which are sometimes found to be
sour; such as people's tempers, for in
“I know it, Miss Fanny, indeed T was i
quite sure that I had hit the nail on
the head, but let me help you to some
cream, for your strawberries. -This is
sweet —like will take like”
“ No, Mr. Maroon —again you are in
fault. 1 have a great distaste to cream.”
The widower looked puzzled. “ Can I
nelp you to anything ?” ho asked glanc
ing over the table.
“I am very well supplied with every
thing that I need,” she said, and I knew
that in her heart she added, “ Pray, do
let me alone, do not interrupt me—l want
to observe what is going on around me.”
Now and then, while this scene was
passing among our neighbors, Miss
Church’s expressive eye would wander
away from hor plate, and would rest up
on the blooming, beautiful creature, of
“Copy right scoured.
whose presence cousin Fred seemed en
tirely careless. Sometimes during that,
her first meal at the public tables, and of
ten afterwards, when perhaps herself in
ihe middle of a sentence, she would stop
suddenly, blush slightly, and look away
to where Fanny Bates was standing or
sitting, as if arrested by a tone, a word,
a look, a something, which had the pow
er of magic.
Fanny was a great favorite with all
classes. Almost everybody at the Springs
managed in some wav to get an intro
duction to the beautiful and wealthy
heiress. She received all the adulation
and praise lavished upon her, with an
easy unaffected grace which it was beau
tiful to witness. ‘Mr. Maroon was assid
uous in bis attentions, but others crowd
ed him off en from her side, if she drop
ped her gloves, a dozen hands were reach
led forth to pick th4ln up for her—if a
dower fell from her hair in the dance, it
was instantly snatched up and worn in
somebody's button-hole—if she walked
or rode, or sat at twilight by the window
she was surrounded by admirers.
But Cousin Fred it seemed to me,
studiously avoided her. lie clung to
our Oakland governess, as if there was
not another beinj in the wide world.—

sketched assidiously—lie stood behind
her at twilight, and turned the music |
for her while she played and sang. Some
times the piece chosen was a. duett and
his voice, strong and clear, blended with
her soft sweet tones.
There was a plaintive little Hindu
song, exceedingly old and obsolete, bin
which by some strange coincidence, both
knew and loved. 1 often wondered where
they learned it; [ never bad heard it, be-1
fore hearing Miss Church play it one j
night at Oakland, and grandfather arid j
grandmother were both surprised when j
Fred joined in and accompanied her to j
the close. When questioned about it, ‘
Fred said that he learned it of a class- j
mate at school, Miss Church said that she
had long known and loved it.
They sang this little piece, one even
ing not long after our arrival at the
Springs. Fanny Bates was walking up
i and down the long eblonade in front
of the house with Maroon, as usual for
a shadow. They were nearly opposite
the window, when the music began.—
The belle’s hand dropped from the wid
ower’s arm instantly, and she came and
looked in through the open casement.—
Afterwards she entered tlie room, and
sank down upon a low seat ii) a niche,
not far from the musicians, and listened
with breathless interest. Her beautiful,
upturned face grew pensive even 1o sad

abstract air. and pensive face. “Do you

of the governess.

This question aroused her. “Oh
no, Mr. Alston,” she replied, “ I feel quite
well—ent rely restored.”
“But you look very pale,” continued
my grandmother. “ You have not been
in the open air to-dav, as much as usual.
Do Frederick, tell John or Tom to bring
out the horses, and you must take a ride
in the carriage. I fear that, you are not
strong enough for horseback riding yet.
Order the carriage, aud all go to the
ruins. Claude can go then, and Miss
Bates perhaps will accompany, you.”
I stood not, far from grandmother’s el
bow, and I whispered into her ear, that
Cousin Fred and Miss Bates had never
been introduced to each other.
“ I declare !” said the old lady, “is it.
possible? We are so well acquainted
with the Doctor and his family, it did
not occur to me that any of the young
people liad not been introduced.”
“Frederick, my dear, come hero!”—

“ Who are those ?” he asked hastily,

Cousin Fred and I sat upon the front

j to assume.
“ How do you like the springs little

“Carlyle,” said the beauty, with a
“Carlyle! yes that’s the matt whom 1

Don’t you think so, little cons ?’-’
“ Hush, Fred !” I said, “ what ridicu
lous ideas you sometimes take up! —
I don’t want to hear your nonsense.”
“ I don’t know much about him,” con
tinned the vexing mortal, “’don’t know

Miss Church smiled faintly. “ I think
Mr. Armstrong,”she said “that Claud*
will have to give lip all claims in that
quarter. Miss Bates led him captive
before our arrival.’’
i Again the clear, silvery laughter of
1 the belle rung out like bird-music.
“ What makes you think so, pray !’
she asked, at length.
“lie spoke of you in very enthusiastic
terms I rginember,” said the governess,
J “ to Mr. Alslon when lie was showing
the rooms. The chief cecominetidalion
j of ours was that it was next door to
1 yours, and indeed in mv estimation, that
j is, in truth, its only recommendation.’
i “The apartments are miserable, it
j must be confessed, said Miss Bates.— j
; “But they tire nevertheless better than
they were last year. I have spent the
, last three summers here.”
“Ah ?” said Miss Church. “ Are any
j of you invalids?”
| “No—that is none of us are much
j afflicted, but mamma sometimes has the
eresipelas. Papa likes to stay here—
the place had charms for him in his
! boyhood, and so,’ in spite of miserable
accomodations, he comes here regularly
i every summer. - But fir ! yonder art
! the ruins: we are nearly at the fort.”
j We all looked out of the window.—
: I saw the remains of an old fortification,
! built perhaps during the Indiau war.
i Huge masses of rock lay in broken piles,
i and were almost entirely overgrown with
I mosses and cryptogamus plants. The
| slanting rays of the declining sun, shone
full upon them, giving them a golden
tinge from the distance, and standing
on the top of one of them—high and
well defined against the sky—l saw a
tall liunutn form. The figure appar
ently- was watching our approach. “Is
it possible,” thought I, “ that Mr. Maroon
has ridden so fast as to be there already?”
As we drew nearer, the figtie got down
and disappeared behind the ruins. When
the carriage stopped, I half expected to
see the gallant, gentleman of an uncer
tain age, come forth to help MBs Bates I
from the seat.. But he did not. Cous
in Fred handed us all out, and we sat \
down on a fragment, and looked up at :
the stupendous pile over our heads, wi.h ;
a feeling ot awe, at, our hearts. 1, at j
least, felt awe-struck, and I was thinking
ot the bloody scenes which might, some
times have been enacted out-side of those,
crumbling gates —of the Hoods of crim- j
son gore which perchance had dyed the I
sod now so green and luxuriant be
neath our foot, while the pale face strug
gled with the rod man for empire, when
on the summit of the pile, high tower
ing above our heads, that human form
again appeared and gazed down at us
though we had boon pigmies. We all
’ uttered aq exclamation of surprise—tUo
figure was so uulooked for. I saw at a
glance that it was not Maroon, or any
of the dwellers at the springs. Had
there been gypsies in that part of the
country, I should have been sure that
one bad clambered to the top of the pile.
Indeed, Meg Merrilies herself, when she
so unexpectedly showed herself to the
simple Laird of Ellangrown, after the ex
pulsion of her tribes from Deruelcugli,

j on an overhanging clitt, and breaking the
I bough with menaceing words and atti
: tudes over the poor Laird’s head, could
scarcely bflVe been a wilder looking ob
ject than the one now perched above us.
I Although it was mid-summer, this man

. some gay colui, which the evening breeze
I swept back, and fluttered behind him.
| On his head, he had a singular cap, but
his fuitn was tall and gigantic and did
not, need the artificial aid of a hat to add
to his stature. His face was swarthy as
an Indian’s, and while he looked down
he uttered something—it was neither a
laugh nor a cry —it was a sound only
“It is Newt Welborn, as I live,” said
Miss Bales, “I have not seen him about
here before-lbs summer. I thought
that lie had left these paits entirely.
Three summers ago he was at the
Springs half of the season, and made a
great deal of sport fur the boarders.”
“Newt Welborn?” echoed cousin
Fred. “ lie is the last person on earth
whom 1 expected to meet here. 1 knew
him at school. But Miss Church, are you
fainting again ? What ails you? You
are as white as a ghost, lias that fel

dumb, frightened your life out of you?

“ Yes,” said Miss Bates, in alarm. —
“ You are very pale, and look just ready
to faint, T declare,” she continued, tuining
to Miss Church. “ I hoped the ride in
j the fresh air would do you good: will

“ If you please,” said the governess,
| faintly. “1 do feel sick ? ’
