A BIRMINGHAM ROMANCE. The following romantic little story is told by the Birming- ham (¡autte Some eighteen months ago two gentlemen — one and the other middle-aged—were to be seen, not. a- our friend G. P. R. James would say, wending their way up the avenue leading to a spacious hall, &c., but quietly taking an evening stroll in the neighbournolld of Temple Bar, where they encountered a urnnsel. 01 the "period," ot course, crying bitterly. The sym- pathies of the younger of the two were at once enlisted, but the eider, whose chivalry bad been quite extin- guished by long knowledge and experience of London dodges," treated the atfair as a hoax, and exhorted his companion to on." Our hero gallantly re- fused. and the two paited company, when the lady iu- formed her knight that she had that diY come to town for the first time in the company of her father, a War- wickshire clergyman; that they h-td repaired to an hotel of which she did not remember the name, and that sauntering out to do some shopping, she had been alJForberl hy some novelty, and ''missed papa," and consequently knew neither what to do nor where to no. The gentleman was placed in rather an embarrassing position. Ot the truth ot the lady's story he entertained no doubt; he soon discovered that she was a lady, and, like a sensible man, he determined to do his utmost to set her right. Ordering a cab, she was conveyed to an hotel and located for the night, her rescuer appointing to m«et her in the morning, convey her to Padding ton, and despatch her back to Warwickshire. He did so, and a few days afterwards the genuineness of thecasf was confirmed by a visit from the clergyman, who, after heartily tnanking his daughter's deliverer for his kind- ness and chivaliy, invited him down to the rectory, whi re the intimacy was renewed, and soon ripened ln^° affection, which was consummated last week by the matrimonial union of deliverer and delivered.
