And now we change the scene.

men, proclaims that Mrs. literear receives
her friends to night. Enamored couples
promenade the spacious rooms, or tread the
mazes of the dance, reveling in the delights
of the hour. Light, music, youth, beauty,
make the intoxicating mixture, which the
votaries of pleasure sip with ,eager lips.—
There is no such thing as sorrow hero. Iler
dark presence would not be tolerated for a
moment. Who knows that that beautiful
woman, with smiling lip and brow, bears
in tier bosom a ''heart bowed down with a
weight of woe f" Who knows that yonder
calm, self possessed, and agreeable man is
on the very brink of ruin 1 Ah ! wo might

the largest of the cat kind 4 Or did the lion,

The rat has the grace and treachery of the
devil. When most in earnest, she creeps,
like the sat pent, the devil' entered into ; and
her hair is phosphoric ! She delights in
darkness Why should an animal which
possesses such fiendish attributes be petted,
or eben tolerated in tbeirvilised household
She proves herself the fiend she is, by her
inveterate animosity to the dog, who posses.
Hes most of the highest attributes of human
nature. I deny the justice of using the word
dig as an opprobrious epithet; but confess
that when the lard ear is thus used, it is
singularly felicitous. Mn.s James' cat is in
danger Mr. Jenkins' dog sees her. She
curls her hack. Ile seizes her. Mrs.
cat is dead ! She has given her last kick by
the cow barn. The 'Mir will, doubtless,
create a sensation in Mrs. James' bosom,
and perhaps it may lead to a rupture of the
friendly relations between Mrs. James and
Mr. Jenkins. Kills widow's cat, and you
touch her dearly. The dog is of no breed ;
but generally of very good breeding. But

What has ho to do with Miss Brown at this

is forty and she is only eighteen, as nigh as
I can guess. Mr. Brown, her father, a vary
