A Romantic Mory.
Wa have just heard ol a rather romantic
story which bu transpired in this city, tbo
Irutb of which we can vonoli for, notwith
standing its sunsittioaal prool ivilics. A few
years since, a girl living as a domestic in an
aristocratic and wealthy family of Liver
pool, England, won the affections of the
bos ot that lamily. ine young man oe-
oame smitten of bis Inamorata, anu receiv
ed upon marrying ber. When be made bis
intentions known to his parents, serious op
position was manifested. The girl, al
though a good one, virtuous and honest,
was not in keeping.witu the family's stead
ing in society. To marry such a one was col
sidered a disgrace in England, especiully
when the family of the young man was of
the highest blood. Notwithstanding all
this, tue young man cast aside all family
ties, and married the poor girl of his affec
tions, who was only a servant in his fathers
bouse. The result was tbat the boy was
driven from tbe paternal roof, and took up
a bumble abode with his wile, iney uvea
together in peace and happiness a long
while. A son was born out ot this wedlock,
filially, tbe husband ol tbe girl was taken
sick with tbat tarriblo disease, coBsumt-
tion, and died, leaving the girl a widow
with ber child. Dining tbe illness of ber
husband, the latter received kind connidi
rations at tbe bands of bis parents, al
though they never, in person, visited IiIb
bedside. Soon after tbe death of ber bus-
band, the widow and her child came to this
country with ber father and mother. Tbey
settled In this city. Tbe father and mother
took up a home lor themselves, while tbe
widow went out to service in a well-known
family living on Washington avenue. She
has been there for a lon- time, and was
honored and respected by ber employers,
Last week she received a letter announcing
the fact that tbe whole ol tbe estate of ber
husband's father, amounting to' 500,000,
bad been bequeathed to ber son. Arrange
ments were at once perfected, and oo
Wednesday last tbe servant girl, accompa
nied by ber father, sailed from New Yoik
for Liverpool, to look after tbe fortune com
ins to them. What a windfalll Suob is
