She smilei assent—what is i t - ^ e The fitvor now disclose; Said ha, my own, ray dearest wifa, Go WIPE THE RABT'S HOSE ! almost impossible to perform her allotted tasks. Then, too, her sad and silent man-ner attracted first the noticc and then the ridicnle of her fellow-laborers—whose un-feeling jests and remarks added not a lit-tle to the unpleasantness of her situa-tion. AH through the long, warm, snmmer days she toiled, her wearied frame calling vainly out for rest; bnt there was none for her—she must work or starve. And oh ! how horrible seemed the noisome, fly-ing machinery, and dark stifling rooms, compared with the bright sunshine, und the free, pure air without SlsieX<ae- "Mother I 0 my mother I" The words came forth, in low, heart-thrilling tones, from the lips of a young girl, who knelt beside a grass^rown grave in a New England ctmrchyard. A /strange picture, she presented, as she knelt there in the warm spring sunsot, witJi her long hair floating in tangled mii^s about her slight form, and her face pressed against the tall white n^ument beside her. A singular face w^ that, and one that the most careless bcil^lider would not pass by without a glance j^so young, and yet so sorrowful. Already there were lines of .eare on the brq^ white brow; and a look of deep, hev^rushing sor row in tlie dark, sad eyes.. Slowly the bright sunset tints died out from the west, and the pi le fight of the many stars came quivering down through the swaying willow tree,; and rested at last on the dew-genuned turf at her feet. But she heeded it not—^hcx^d not the rare beauty of the night, the rapidly passing moments, as, wit^ bowed head and folded hands she mused on that broad life-field of mortale^the past, the present and the future. I^e past—she could not dwell long there ; now it was full of light, and gladness^; and now of dull, agonizing grief, such IB only those who have seen a loved one die .can know. The present maid not be o^erwise than sad, when there, in^'the stilf chambers of the dead," lay all that reraiuned ot her best iriend—her mother, ^^at though her father was the owner of^Mny a broad acre, and a stately maasion.WaB her home Another filled her saintly mother's place j and she felt like an outbaft—a depend-ent on' the bounty of those who should have been near to her, for the,, necessaries of life, and a few tender words, wiiich she so longed for, and which, alas ! she never heard. The future—what had it in store for her but the same dreary roaiijd of sorrow? And, in her wild despair,-Elsie More prayed that she might, ere long, sleep beside her mother there. Oh ! ye gay and happy sons of earth—ye who have never felt the "withering blight of sor-row," pause and pity the young heart that, from its inmost depths, can pray for that feartui thing:— death. That night the father of Elsie More died. On her return home, after an ab-sence of several hours, she learned that he had been thrown irom his horse, while on his way fr im a political meeting in a neighboij^g town, and it w^ feared, fa-tally ijijur^. That, even then, a servant had gone in pursuit of her, .as he had ex-pressed a wish to see his only child once more. With a faltering step, she ascended the head stairway, and entered the lofty apartment where he lay. No one was prc^nt save the family physician—for Mrs. More on hearing the sad intelligence had fallen into violent Bysterics, and was consigned to the care of a servant, in her own room. Elsie needed no one to tell her, as she glanced at his pallid face, the hand of death was there ; the labor-ed breath and glaring eyes told, but too plainly, solemn fact All the old love thSit had lain so long slumbering in heart sprung up AS she be-held that once proud form awaiting so helplessly "the grim destroyer." Forgot tben, wasthe harshness and neglect of later days ; and she could only think of hoa as the kind, indulgent parent of her earlier years. Those dying eyes gleamed tenderly upon her, as she pressed the cold hands to her lips. But he was toe far gone to speak, and could only lay his hand's in silent blessings on her head, ere the dread summons came, and Els!e More was an orphan. There is a gprocer in Penyslvania, who is said to ])e so mean, that he wai seen, to catch « fly off his counter, hold him up by the hind legs, and look into the cracks of his feet to see if be hadn't been steal-ing some of his sugar. Hie greatest pleasure of life is love the greatest teeasuve, coaif^tment ; thfe greatest possession, heall^ ; the greatest ease is slecfi, «nd the gveatest medicine a trae friend me I" si^ied MrsI^MrtiagtoB.^'here have b^n sofferin' the bigamies of death three mortal weeks.

This gave me an in-flamatioB in tiie borax, and now Fm siek with the cloryform morbus. There is no Uessin'like that of health, particolariy wlieiiyo'i'residc." One month later, and Jiilsie bade adieu to her beautiful home, and went forth to battle with, the world. On thesettlcment of her father's «state, it was found to be deeply involved in debt ; and that, after satisfying the demands ot the numerous creditors, nothing would remain for his widow and child. The former on learning this, immediately departed to reside with a wealthy relative in another State, leav-ing Elsib to depend on her own untried exertions for a livelihood. Through the agen<7^ of one of the servants, employ mont was procured for her in a lar^ man-ufacturing village, some twenty miles dis-tant and thidier she went Then, indeed a new life opened before her—and a hai-d toilsome one she found it to be. Her for-mer k>t she had thought unendurable ; bnt uhis was infinitely worse. Then shr had only sorrow to contend with ; but now, poverty was added to it. Unaccus-tom^ as. she was to lalor, she at first fevind it veiy diflkolt j and fiiought it "She is so like our own dear Anna. If you could only see her, Richard, I'm sure you would not object." "Nonsense, Hester!" replied the wealth-merchant, Richard Gray, as he indolently sipped his coffee. "What a ridiculous idea for you to think of adopting an ig iiorant factory-girl—imagining, all the while that she resembles poor Annie.' "That she is neither low nor ignorant I am fully convinced," replied the lady, warmly. "I am almost certain that she has seen better days, and that misfortune has reduced her to her present condition. We should pity, not despise her for that" "Well, well ! S i ^ you've so set your mind upon it I'll see her, though I do think its folly. But when shalf wego— this morning f "She will not be at home during the day ; we will call there this evening." "But on second tiiought, Hestei-, how can we find her. You say you only met her on the street." "Yes ; but I followed her for some time and saw her at last enter a house on Wa-ter street," "Well, then, it's decided ; well go this evening." And Mr. Gray hurried away to his place of business, leaving his lady-wife to meditate over her new found hope. A fine-lookitig weli-preserved woman of forty was Mrs Gray—one who had been reai^ in luxury, and who, until within a few years, had known nothing of grief or care. The one great sorrow of her liiC was the loss of her only child—a beautiful girl—who died of consumption some months pravioas to the commence-ment of our stoiy. A few days before the conversation iust related, she chanced to meet our friend Elsie on the street, and was so struck with her resemblance to I^er lost daughter that she resolved to adopt her as her own—^providing, of course, that she could obtain Mr. Gray's consent, which she greatly doubted, as he was a very matter-of-fact gentleman, and entertained a wholesome honor of all such "romantiu nonsense," as he termed it How she suc-ceeded, we have already seen. When Elsie returned to her humble home that night, she was greatly sur prised to learn that a lady and gentleman had been for some time wailing their to see her. Supposing there must be some mistake, she hastily repaired to the room where they were, and found Mr. and ^'rs. Gray. We will not pause to relate all that transpired that evening; suffice it to say that even Mr. Gray's objections mel-ted away before Elsie's extraordinary likeness to his own beloved child ; and a short time after found her installed in their splendid home, in their lost one's place. At first she could hardly realize her situation—the change was so great from the toilsome, dreary life she had led, to the one of ease and enjoyment now be-fore her ; and when, at length, she came to feel it was lio dream, but a bright and pleasant reality, her love and gratitude toward her benefactors was unbounded. Let us pass lightly over the space of three years, and no^ glance once more at our friends. A lar^ and bril-liant company are assembled in the fami-ly mansion of the Grays, to celebrate not only the return of the family fn)m Funipe —wbere they have been passing che last year—but also the marriage of the only daughter to a young artist whom she met in Italy, and who is well worthy of her choice. You would hardly recc^ize in the ele^nt and accomplished Miss Gray —who is the idol of the gay crowd about her—^the poor, hopeless factory-girl of oth-er days. And as she stands there re-ceiving the congratulations of her many friends, we will leave her, hoping that, as her earlier years had been full of dark-ness and sorrow, her later ones may be crowned with light and joy. entwine, the vessel into which they all pour themselves with s\icb jfraoasfveedom There is no one word contains in it so many endearing associations and precious remembrances, hid in tbe heart like gold. It appeals at once to the very centre of man's l)eing,—his "heart of hearts." All that is sweet, soothing, ten-der, and true, is wrapt up in that oi»e name. It speaks not of one circle or one bond ; but of many circles and many bonds,—all of them near the heart. The family home, the family hearth, the fam ily ts ble, family habits, family voices, family tokens, family salutations, fannly melodies, family joys and sorrows ; whal a mine of recollections lie under that one word ! Take these away and earth be-comes a graveyard of crural/ling bones ; und man are so many grains of loosened sand, c»r at best, but as the fragments of a torn flower, which ..he winds are scatter-ing abroad. All that is beautiful in human relation-ship, or tedder ia human affection, or gen-tle in human intereuurse ;—all that is loveable and prccious in the movements of a human heart from its lowest depth to its upermost surface, aH tliese are wrapt up in the one name of family. For close-knit bonds, for steadfast faithfulness in love, for depth of sympathy, for endur-ance in trial and danger—where shall we find anything that can be compared to the story of earth's family circle ? C»)n-jugal love, parental love, brotherly love-sisterly love,—all are here. The many streams ot human af^tion empty them-selves into it, or flow out of it foe the fer-tility and gladness of the earth. THE FAHILT CIRCLE.—No earthly circle can be compared with that of the family. It comprises all the human heart nv at values and delights in. It is the cen re where all the human affections meet and What shall we do for Xn^Plieletonise- Can anybody tell us what is to be done for Mrs. Pheletonise ? Old Biishelman, the tailor, was her ta-ther ; and Iter husband, now of the great firm of Skrimpem & Co., came to town a barefooted boy, and slept on the door-steps, and in the Park. He was a bookeeper when he married Nancy Bushelman, and they lived in a modest way enough in the upper part of a house, in Pike street, where Mrs. Nancy did bet owa work, quite independent of intelligence offices, and used to run out uf mornings in a calico wrapper, with a market-basket on her arm, and a key dangling in her fingers. Now they have a house in Twenty-thii- d street, a villa at Newport, with Goth-ic towers, and an Egyptian porch ; and I question if Mrs. Phelotonise could tell the differance between a frying-pan and a srridiron. She has grown very fat and red in the face, interlards her conversation with bad french, and speaks of residing in Paris. '•It is quite dreadful, my dear !" she is in the habit of saying. "America grOws more unbearable every day. Just imag-ine that I have been patronizing Mad-ame Gro'iier for the last, three years—ac-tually, my dear, sending Clara Elvina and Maria Sapphira there to school all that time, and have only just discovered that My Comaker's daughter goes there, too ; and if you can believe it, is in tbe same class. "Grotier, too I I should have thought she would have had more decency than to admit such a person. That's the con-sequence of Republicanism ; and then look how we are governed ! "I passsd the polls to^lay, and saw men voting there who actually Wore patched pantaloims and flannel shirts ! To think that such persons should be allowed to vote—these low people who ought to be thankful if we condescend to govern them. "They manage thin^ better in France. Ah, my dear ! Paris is the |>lace for me. America is too shocking P Again, I ask, what can l>e done for Mrs. Phelotonise ? Js there no philanthropist who will ex-plain to our ddnded people "tlie inestima-ble privileges of being governed by the Phelotonises, and teach the daughters of misguided shoemakers their proper place ? Will no one save our little re-public from utter desolation by the with-drawal of this brilliant light of society t I pause for a leply. OH MY.—A lady was the other day des-cribing to her husband son-.e pnor tut dficent people si'e had visited, and con-cluded by revealing the followipg climax o. folly to which they had attaint d "And my dear, only think, they have a rag car-pet on the floor—And ijet their children call^ fheir parents pa and ma!" Why is a cat's tail like a swan's bo-som ? Because it grows down.
