whispered) the daughter of a large soap-maker in Bow, and had not yet, we will suppose, shaken off her Cockneydom; and to this woman, Villiers-high-bred and reserved Villiers-true to his idea of right, confessed honestly and frankly that he had done wrong! But further his patience did not go ; and he bowed himself out in the midst of her volley of recrimination (in which Miss Rosamond, coming on the scene, joined with much hysteria a few screams and many expletives of “ brute!” "perjurer!" “ villain!" &c. &c.), with a sarcastic intimation that any satisfaction Mr. Horatio might be pleased to demand for the slight passed on his sister he should be happy to accord. After that interview was over, the judge requested to have one, and the old gentleman began taking him to task pretty sternly for having trifled with Lena while he was engaged to another.

“You said nothing, I know, Major Villiers," said Dupuis, " but your attentions were such as to win any girl, and compromise any man of right honour.” And Villiers pleaded guilty, and laid his case so candidly before the judge, that the old man was fairly won over, and told his wife, when they were alone, that upon his honour Guy was a fine fellow, a delightful man, and he thought he liked him the better for having done wrong, he confessed to it so charmingly; and as to his being inconstant, “Women are very provocative to that sin, my dear. I am seventy-six, but I can remember that!"

Mr. Horatio Tomkinson did call him out, incited to that feat of daring by the united goading of his mother and sister, much, I believe, against his own desire. Villiers met him, of course; but he let the boy have the advantage of first fire, of which Mr. Horatio, having learnt in a pistol gallery preparatory to joining the B.N.I., availed himself, and, trying to hit the Major’s left lung with very bloodthirsty purpose, succeeded in carrying away the end of Villiers's ribbon-tie. Guy fired in the air, not willing to do any harm to the raw youth for only acting as Villiers himself would have acted.

The Tomkinsons departed very early that day for Mangobanyan, and that was the last we saw of them. A few months after we heard that Miss Rosamond had eloped with a Captain Thomas Jones, of the 1000th B.N.I. So perish many flirts, who, aspiring to coronets in the commencement of their career, sink into Smiths or Browns, and exit miserably with no éclat or feux d'artifice whatever. Whether Captain Thomas Jones repents of his bargain, I cannot tell-history sayeth not, and he is not in my sphere; but I should say very possibly-yes.

The Queen's Roans left Chirriawiggliajorriput very soon afterwards for England, and Villiers brought with him his " tropical flower,” which, I must say, he has guarded from all English east wind, and has cherished most tenderly ever since. The tiger-skin is the rug of Lena's ponycarriage, in which toy contrivance she is particularly delighted at driving Guy, who could carry the whole thing, steeds, driver, and all in his arms. He and the old Queen's Roans rode with us the other day on to the Russian

guns, and he came out without a scratch-his confounded luck, as he calls it; and that pretty girl so admired on the race-course the other day, on her rough pony, was Lena Villiers, née Treviot. No power on earth, Guy tells me, would have kept her at home, and I do not fancy that he exerted any; for he said, laughing, that Lena could coax him into anything
