on New Year's Day, iivery one is expected to visit every

rigidly mainteia it. The next day is Ladies' Day, and
then the fair sex take their tarn out and visit all their la

. The following letter from Gen. Cars, to thi Committee
otlutritatiou to the Muoicipal Dinner. giviinl by the Cor
poratiOn of New York to Kossuth, on Thursday evening,
wall be read with interest, by hia Lienda in every section
of the Vountrc:
Wcducmlny. Dec. 3, 1851.
thank you for remembering me among
those to bu invited to the public dinucr to be given by the
Comnion Council of New York to. Louis Kossuth, the
champion of Hungarian Independouce, and regret that
nty_chiturs here will prevent we from beiug present at
that interesting occasion. Um, though absent, 1 partici-,
pate in the feeling which has led the commercial metro
polis of our country to do honor to itself. by thus
honor to the man and the cause so dear to every lover of
human freedom tiirough thu world. Glorious has been
the career, and bright will be the fame of-the Hungarian
Patriot and Statesman. The struggle of his country to
break the iron yoke of Austrian despotisitii was oue of
the noblest efforts ever made by an oppressed pebple to
recover their lost liberty. It was marked, by the most
heroic services and 'maces, and ain.d all its vicissitudes
of success and du , sster. it commanded the respect of thd
world, and_found its support in the breast of the whole
Hungarian ,people. And valor and patriotism would
have been crowned with their just reward. the establish
ment ofa free Government, hod not the right of natio:ls,
and the best feelings of our nature been outraged by the
interposition of Husain, and liberty fell before the union
and The crusade of the Cossack and the Plandeur.
And now the world-renowned exile is corning sowing
as. The expairiated leader is seeking refuge in the New
World from the injustice and oppreaalou of the Old. At
once'the charripiou'and the representative of a glorious
cause—the cause of Human freedom—he hes a right to
our esteem lied atrectien, and such tuanifeatations of pop
ular favor as will convince both the oppressor and the
eppreued that wherever a nation is struggling for free
dom, the hearts, and hopes of the A-nencan people are
with it in the e' . May the laud of Washington ever
be the asylum of the exiled patriot. who, lame fortunate
than Washington;but like ham devoted 'to his country
is doomed to abandon it. and to seek safety among stran
ger*, from the vengeance -of orWirer/ power. And in
this spirit may the great Rr public welcome her guest. and
testify her respect fur him. and her hope that he may ere
long return to his-beloved Hungary. to enjoy the
lade of a free and happy people. I ain, gentlemen, with
great respedt. Your obedient servant, Littists Cass.

Howard Staitley, alas! had many idle hours pn his
hands that winter. and Ellen had a anseeptible heart.—
The result may be guessed. •
It is an old tale. Had the poor girl had a parental
home, or a mother to warn her, or brothers sad sisters to
love, she would not with all her poverty, have fallen. It
was the yearning of a desolate heart for affection, the in
stinct of her sex to poor oat-its treasures , of tenderness
somewhere, that led her to ruin. She beguiled herself,
as thousands bane done before and since, with tit+, hope
that her betrayer loved her too well to abandon he r, i and
that. in tge and, he wonhl give her wealth Ind sta tion by
Bat Howard Stanley dared not do this, even if lie had'
wished. His lamily-wan *Canby and expected him to
wed a wealthy bride. It ha come also of an cad Barites
stock, and having namberedlmany eminent fathern in the
church:was proud of its traditional propriety. To have
betrayed his crime, or married hit pinnate, victim, would
alike have made him an alien and outcast from hishotne.
But he did wish to marry Ellen.: He was ambitions. and
Wigan already . . .
odd led biro ut to take an interest in the un
protected orphan. He pitied per, indeed. "hot." as -he
said to his conscience, "it was too late now to moralize."
To extricate himself from his dilemmi. he sailed for Eu
rope. resolved never to see Ellen again'. but concealing
this intention. and telling her he weal on isaperatilre ha.
When the coneequences of her weakness becaine ap-.
parent. the terrible expiation of Ellen began. She wu
driven from her lodgings. she lwu deprived of heti work.
How elm subsisted she could scarcely berselltell. l The
miserable garret, where we find her, bed been h r last
refuge; there her. child was born; end there; she n w am
penniless. 1 .
Yet she had endured all with comparative iterprity,
for she attributed it entirely to her lover's shoetree.—
..When he returns from Europe." she would sei 'o
selfAL "he will ackneWledge his son and wavy' m ; and
then how happy, oh! how happy we shall be.'" she
would strain her infant to her bottom With/tears.' 1 •
With these hopes she had watched the arrival +r eve

lover's name among the list ofPasee / mgers. Withi a a few

Suddenly the littc,h of the garret door was lifted; The
poor girl started her feet with a beating heart,

Fur w moment s she gazed on the letter. withotli open

with what secure a desperate effort. she unfolded the
sheet. Severaltank notes, as she did it. fluttered to the
ground. .' 1
But she took ne notice of them, for she was already
devouring the words, as if, having once begun. she would
. ,
know the Worst as sou s as possible.
We will not quote the letter. Howard Stanley, hough
he bad almost forgotten Ellen, felt keen remorse oiread
ing her pathetic narrative. His first impulse was! to see
her, but, as among ether maxims to which be had been
educated, be had been taught never to act is a mitten of

till the nest day. The result was a letter, is which he
annomiced as tenderly is possible, that he

•at great sacrifices to himself.
When Ellen had finished this irpistio, she sat, ter sev

had shattered into ruins the edifice of her foie, of leer rep
utatiOn. and of her hopes for her chiltivand. as yet. she
could scarcely realize the life-long disa.ter. Hier fist
thoughts were of her boy.
-"He does not say a word of baby," she trituteted, at
last. "He cares a little for rue, but none for darling."—
And at this thought she burst iota a Good of tears. ' "Oh!
