Rich ineadolvs lay at the feet of 'woods and stretched
down to the ittrearri. Herds of cattle lay on thaw, chew

white wall s &f a noble house peeped, in the dusk of sight.
through the fertile timber which stood in proud guardi
anship of theirmansion; and -bread. winding walks gave
evidence of a place where nature and art had combined
to form a paradise. There were ampler pleasuni-grounda.
Alas! thd-geounds around the cabins above which the
heron had ito lately' flown. might truly be styled pain
grounds. .
Within that home war / assembled a r happy fruity.
There was the father, au / no-looking man of forty. Proud
you would have deem him. as lie sat for a Moment ab
stracted in his cushgned chair; but a moment after
ward.. as a troop ofilildrion tame bursting into the room.
his manner was instantly changed into one so pleasant,
so playful and ,"overflowing with enjoy meta, that you
saw him outfit. an amiable. glad. dainestio man. • The
mother, a handsome woman, was seated already at the
tea-tablet tfid in another minute, sounds of merry voices
and ehildis laughter were mingled with the jocose Masse
of the

There was a horst of smothered sobs from the same
corner, atul.tho'm ister's eye fleshed with h strange fire
as he again‘dairted a glance towards the offouder. The
lady looked, equally surprised, in the same direction: .
then turned a mesining leek on her husband—a warm
dash was succeede r y a paleness in her couetenance,
and, shp cut down h eyes. The children wondered.
