Une evening, during leave on sht ro. after g.-tting myself into lull t >g. I was displaying uiy hv?? soman? fail* near the Z <ologiral Garden. i.i London, when I saw. in the j>ath t > the entrance, one of the loveliest women that ever appeared to the eyes of *u ex-re?-fer. It w;?s a thing completely settled in my mind, that I wa- a full grown man. and that a fail frown man with moustache*. ha* a right to look at 1 y woman. In thort, I dismounted. gave my librae to the groan, and followed my d. vinity. A little gul was behind her, walking with the nnwotnaid. who had another child, an infant. in her arm?; and to my great aat re faction, this careless Servant put the? baby pre ? seutly into the arms of the older girl, p."! much bigger than itself. I watched the pro ! deeding, saw the little creature, whoso walk w-s hut u totter at the best, swaying to and frv under tho burden, and the b-by s long clothes trailing on the ground. " Madaji," said 1 to the !??dy. touching try ! hat in quarter-deck fashion, " that baby. I ] fear, is in dangerous h.-nJs, jcu are perhap ; aoi awate of it T" She tuiued round .n.-*ant ; ly It wa< what I vrsnted. but the H isa I re oeived Irom her heautifal ejes h.vl n w?'rld of i haughtiness in it; and, although she bent her i htai slightly, and sai.l Sir, I thank you," j I (i d rot dare to continue the conversation, j out walked rapidly ??.. (n fact. it was ob vious the woman thought I had taken an on ' warrantable liberty in criticising the anaug - ! mints of her walk; F.nd as wheu turuing away j ( caught a i-utile at my discomfiture on the face of the nmse-ma:d. wt.o s: a che l the b ?by r.'Ughly iwuy, indignation mi.igled with my awkwardness. As I saw her enter the Gar dens, my lie irt gave a cr at lean, for I con.-: 1 1 ered it un-'ommonly liaeiy that alio*. wooid I beak louse, or something or "?thcr occur to i draw f./rth my chivalry, and extort her gr.iti tuie.
