The 'poor woman uttered no reply—in
deed she was hardly capable of speech;
but the . - . millerot sturdy man, answered 1
her that she could go no more to.the home
ofct villain who had nearly killed her.—
These words provoked p— to unbounded
fury; he rushed upon the man who had
spoken them with sue!' violence as to throw
him oil his guard, and would have stran

When he found tkintself overpowered by
superior strength, he revengal himself by
the most fearful curses, vented especially
upon his poor wife, whom again, with a.
busivo epithets' he ordered to "go home,
and not c x pose ;herself in, this ridiculous

determined face : "no—l will 140 T return

for by:her sympatnising female acquain•

hands she could suppo'rt herself , And her
little ones. And sow, very soon, did her

even cheerful ; and the playful caresses of
her children beguiled her of many sad

and derision; he was leaping' about with
frantic gestures, clapping . his hands and
laughing - immoderately, or' thrusting his
face between The bars to grin , defiance at
his tormentors...Suddenl•a , woman — her
face concealed : by a drooping bonnet and.
thick veil—glided through the crowd, and,'
reaching up to the window; oared a par

as she hastened 'away, that her steps tot

his dying.mother. , His name was written
on the , first page in . her hand. Many
times'in the week, always ut dusk, did the
Same compassionate visitor stand at the

the prisoner, who was
. evidently affected
by the kind attention. , He ceased his idiotic
-dancing and laughing ; he answered noth
