Helen. Graham was in her; thirtieth year.-- ,
She was not beautiful; - but.lier thoughtful,

spell of mind upon mind ; . and they attributed
to the right cause - the 'sway Which she caer

She was not one of those ;of'whum, Keble
has beautifully said,:

the hand that Wrought its 'destruction; she
learned tolook calmly upon the ruin; ay,more 1
than-that, she grew to thank God-that in the

When she heard the rumors .of
Dorrance's and his Wife's unhappiness, and af-'
tercvnrds of their separation; she, said to her
self, " There haS been blame upon both
and earnestly she wished that;slie- might be a

‘Mrs. Dorrance sees no one." So week . fel- 1

.One afternoon she was summoned -intkithe
parlor, to a person who was aWalting her there..
Upon entering she was struck with the singu
larity of the face df the new-comer. She no
ticed the anomaly of exceedingly light :hair
and jet black eyebrows and lashes. There
was something also in that thin. face (of a
deadly 'whiteness from the contrast of the
black bonnet,) that rivited he'r gaze Upon it;
while she taxed her memory to recall why it I
should so haunt her with-the feeling that she
had seen it before.
The young woman seemed embarrassed by
the scrutinizing-look which Miss
.Grifilm fix

was led to see that the esteem which her hus

Helen Graliam appreciated. the thoroufth
change which had been wrought in the thiiU
less woman of the world i to 'inspire ;in her
such self-devotion. as, she now, porpOsed to
carry out: choosing to perform the menial of
fices of a servant; rather than tO endure a long

of her as a gentle woman who had .. .known bet.

she also begged forgiveness. . - .
Oh! .that,was a holy and happy hour.

Women do not•sulliCiently comprehend the
responsibilities which they take upon them
selves in' the marriedlifq, Instead of looking
Open - marriage as "a career of -devotion," as
!'• an exercise of virtues often difficult," they
seem to eXpect the homage of the lover to- be
continued t_ and, disappointed at the outset,.
they indulge themselves in "sentimental re
proaches" until there is danger of their hap
piness‘suffering shipwreck ; for men soon wea.

often squ,afider their eloquence. -
-Again, there are instances where • the wife'
haS faithfully performed her duties, and yet
she sees a change gradually taking place ih
her husband. • The rose-colored tint with
Which she had invested the future, gives place
to a.cold - and leaden hue as the love of the
chOsen one seems to dinainish,abserbed'bv the
world and its , pleasures. But even then there
is hope., Let her watch occasiona.for Malting
sacrifices; let her she* -that ; her husband's
happiness js still herpredominant study; above
all, let her avoid all reproaches; and no one
heart in which the flame of love has everbum
ed will long remain prod to such devotion.
From this digression we will - go back to

Howard Dorance attempted no explanation
in words, but he pulled off the close lawn cap,
and the flaxen perruque, and as Margaret's dark
hair fell around her, Mrs.. Egerton could not
fail to recognise' some traces of the beautiful
Crayon in the'library, which she had so often
stidiedvlith interest since she had become an
inmate Of that dwelling. '

The following interesting story that went

well worth'repeating.. The late - Mrs.'Jordan
possesied a - heart susceptible of the Most ten.
dee and humane emotions, and these were
called into action by the least approach of mis
ery or distress: During hershortstay at Ches.
ter, where she had been Verforming, her wash.
erivoman, a widow With three children, was by
a merciless creditor, thrown into prison. _. A
small debt of forty shillings bad. been wolked
up in a short time r ibyl law expenses, into II
bill of eight pounds.; As soon as Mrs. Jordon
heard of the eircumstances`she sentlor the at.
torney, paid his dedand, and observ?d,-with as
much - severity, as her. good nature could as.
You lawyers are' certainly infernal spirits,
sent on earth to make poor mortals misers.
The attorney, however; pocketed the affront,
and with a low bow Inade his exit:

the tears of feeling Stole down' her cheeks,
and stooping to kiss the children, she slipped
a pound note,into : the mother's hand, and in
