4he lived in a miserable court running out
Tottenham Court Road; and as l' went up the
dark and close-smelling staircase to her second
floor, I trembled at finding myself in such a
place. l'qen I entered the teem, I don't
know which struck me most—the wretched
ness or the cleanliness of the apartment. In
one corner stood alwdstead,and from the thin
fold 'of the' sheet, which was turned down over
the patch-work counterpane, I knew directly
that there was not a blanket upon it. In an
other corner,her little invalid son lay stretched
upon a mattress on the floor, with an old flan
nel petticoat wrapped ruurid his limbs , to keep
him warm. • Acr4ss the room on a string sus
pended from wall to wall, hung - a few stock
ings, and other articles of wearing apparel,
to diy. There were but two wooden chairs;
one of them,' with its broken back roughly
mended with strings, was by the sick boy's
side, with a cup on it, while . seated on the
other, by a deal table, and close to the small
shovelful of fire in the grate was the semp
stress herself. As she turned her head round
to see who entered, I perceived that one of
her eyes had been bruised since she was with
me, and 'no sooner did she see me atthe door,
than starting up, she raised her handkerchief
to her face; and observing that the disfigure
ment attracted my notice, she told me—with
such hesitation, that I knew it was an un
truth—that she had an accident, and knocked
her eye . against the door.
"You have come fur the work you gave
me," she said; "yes, I know I have been
very remisk I ought to havebrought it home
'before, but—the fact is—a—a—" •
"You have had an illness in the house," I
added, endeavoring to help her.
"No-4t was not that—but—" and she
burst into tears. •
"Come,. come, my good lady," I continued,
"do not vex yourself; 1 atn not in a hurry for
it, and next week, or even the week after that
Neill be time enough for me„ Now, come;
be candid with me—you ere in distress.—
Tell me, can, I be of any assistance to you."

ver of the lip; I con assure you we are not in
distress, however much appearances—a—a
-, and we do require assistance yet." .
ales; hut I know you do," I added;
di though you eannot,bring yourself to confess
it. 7
Madam, I do not require assistance," she
replied, rising; "and surely I am not sunk so
low that my word cannot be recelveV
My woman's curiosity was so piqued to
learn who she possibly could have been, that
I sat there talking about the illness of the
child, and twisting the conversation into a
hundred different channels, in the hope she
Would let drop something that would give me
a clue to her histokrlss,...At last, just as I was
about to take my leave in despair, her hus
band staggered into the apartment. He was
a man whose coarseness and grossness of fea
ture contrasted wonderfully with hers; and
yet; notwithstanding his high cheek bones and
unshorn chin, and sodden complexion, there
was something in the expression of his eyes
and manly figure, that made me fancy that at
one time he must have been almost handsome.
" Now, Georgians,' ho said, in a husky
thick voice, "have you got any tin 7 cos, if
you has, hand it over."
"DOn't you, see there is a stranger pre
sent !" she answered, biting
. her lips at the
Idea of my being a witness to the scene.
"Strangers be hanged !" he replied, look 2
ing first at me, and then at his wife; "I want
some money, I tell you; those cursed skittles
hits regularly cleaned me out. So, 'come ;
hand us over a bob, and take that handkercher
from that black 'eye I guy you for yostin

'U have none," she returned with a shud

was going on in his poor wife's breastduring
all thls 'ftightful scene., And directly her hus
band, . left -the - room; despite all exertions'
the tears hooded her eyes. I rose to console
her; and ori,gping up to her, she fell upon my
boson), and wept like It child.
,she. raised
,her head, saying,
,',"There] that has done the good; tell.' the now
can you guesswho I am?",
"I indw enough,' my -poor one," I replied,
"to know that you l are aufFering from some
imprudent alliance. ",
' "Iniprudent! it was a mad—downright mad
dne!" she exclaimed, with T
bitterness. '"o

have united mysel to. my father's gardener's
Boni But deeper tely—idolatrously.l loved
him; and for him I braved the fearful rage of
father—mother—a I: And what was my re
ward? Why, when my husband found every
one of' my many at pplications for forgiveness
spored by my hatighty parents and
, even the
door of my former hems shut for ever against
me, then he.--aceing . :how lie,hati been foiled
in the ambitious ga)ne hePad played, and that
instead of the rich teiress ho pad expected,
he had only an eipmsive pauper for his wife
—then he, I say, reeked his vengeance on
me, and then began the long series of such
sufferings and privations, as even 1 who have
suffered them cannot so much 'as shadow out
:to you."
"But wouldn't his father do something fur
yourl naked.
"What could ho do?" she replied. "Dis
missed from his situation—ruined through my
marriage with his :son (for my father, of
course, suspected he had connived at it,) how
could .we expect support from him? And
yet we might have been far beyond want had
my) husband only permitted mei° exercise the
accomplishments that he'd been heaped (Toil me,
at home. But to drown the vexation he felt
at the fearful mistake he had.madel he flew
to drink, ind soon lost iii the bottle, all
er of exertion. When he had drunk up all
the trinkets I had cerried with me in my
night, he began taking , my drestieu from me
one by . on'e,`'atid conver ting ihetii into more
money for mere li4uor; until, at last I was
forced, from the very want of proper clotlfing,
to discontinue giiing the lessons which were
our only means of subsistence."
"But if he has treated. you thus badly," I
replied, "why not have left him?"
"I could not-4 would not leave me;'',. she
answered; "that was all I wanted—all I ask
ed of him. But no, he knew he was entitled
to all learned, and that I must work if it was
only for my child; so as he was too idle to
keep himself, he was but too glad to be kept
by me. And let; notwithstanding all thio, I
could haveloved him—:aye, and did luVe him
like a .dog,even though he beat me like a dog.
But when, in the wantonness of his dissiOtion
he dared to bring his degraded companions .to
my home, my -whole woman's ;mute rose up
and rebelled against it, and I hated him as
intensely—madly as I once had hived him.—
And now, you may fancy how gladly I would
leave him if I could. But oh. Heavens, I
cannot! Often and often have I fled with my
child in the night to save myself from further
I wrong, and my poor boy from-the pollution of
his father's example; but the bound has track
ed me out' so soon, that I now see how fool
t is to hope ever in this life to be rid- of.
"Poor, poor lady," 1 half said to myself.
"Ah, you know, not how sweet it is to find
one consoling voice," she continued calmly,
as the tears flowed anew,—"friends all, have
turned from me, and yours are the first kind
tones I have heard for years. Indeed, indeed
you cannot tell what I have auffored from

He threatened blows. Still I • , told him he

Washington again became apathetic and
contemplative, while several sighificant glan
ces passed beween the gentleman. and his
wife. Some live minutes were spent in per

ttie exit of Mrs. It: Irma the apartment. She
speedily returned, accompanied by . a beautiful
young lady, whom Washington, with a cowl

becoming respect - . ; •
The young lady was ' 14iary Philipse, sister
of Mrs. Robinson, and daughter of the - owner
of the' Phihose estate..
It was perhaps singular; but the time of
her appearance:and the period of the return of
Washington's cordiality; was ideotical.—

Years rolled on upon the mighty tide of i
time. George IVashingtoos Was the Com-
tnander-in-chief of the American forces op.
posed to the royal government. The friend
of his early 'manhood,Beverely Robinson, was
the Colonel of the Loyal American regiment
raised in this state,' and his son was the
bieutenant Colonel, The house we. have
spoken of was in possession of the l thePrebels,'
and was occupied by Arnold, the traitor. It
was afterwards the temporary 'residence of ;
Washington. At the same time, the husband
of Mks Mary-Philipse, Roger Morris', was a
prominent torY,-and a member of the' leper - mill
of-the colony. Few of pile parties were oc- i
cupied by any reflections of an amorous pa- II
tore. Tillie, in its progress, had worked mu- I
'igloos which had severed the closest. ties both
of friendship and coasanguinity. Those who
were most intimate previous -to the com
mencement orthe 'war,' 'were now studied
strangers, with drawn swords at eadh othees /
breaits. Even sons and fathers wereestrang
ed and arrayed' in opposite ranks—even the
child of that illustrious statesman, Dr. Friink-
lin, was a bitter and uncompromising tory.— I
It must not be supposed that, the loyalist
friends of the Colonel, (George Washington, I
shared any better fate, so far as the acquaint
anceship of the Father of his Country ,was-I
concerned, than others. His old Hudson riv- I
er friends he had not seen for years. The
