Du7ing my travels in Asia Minor, a few
years since, I was.inviied to!visit a friend who
bad been for some time a resident otiSmyrna,
and whose genercMs hospititlities have been
bestowed on more than one: i Anielicati stran
ger sojournlng in tit'at ltterogenous city,
made up,of every tongue, kindred and nation

Most over ourheads, from the tiag-staff of the
American Consulate near by,',inducing a home
feeling so griteful to the litiw Englander, at':
ter a prolonged exile frpm his native land.
- A ming ,063... nu tuber; was .Ed ward Barring
.ton. Jr., editor of a Metropolitan Journal and
Magazine;—his father the Tataran Prince of
Editors. Ile Was the idol of the .good-.old
man, a severe student, - a stern -Moralist, 'an -
ardent philantbropi-t, and I sincere friend.
Suddenly, his bialth gavel way under the
pressure of his. studies: and. his editorial la.
hors, and the climate•of.Asi Minor was pre,
scribed by his physician as e possible res'o
rer of - his exhausted • energ,es. During the
bouts of twilight and evening I was much iu I
the habit of reading tol him, and - enjoyed in
no small degree Iris kecsti and sagacious raid;
cisms and' bis - polished ieady_wit. .
- Jost., back- of the iavalid's!window resided
Mr. Melbourne, a wealthy Eirglish merchant.
Ile had no children, btit bad bought Mid ad=

one :.f a one numereus and 1 opulent - family
on the Island of lick. - j During one of those-
bloody insurrections some years ago, in the
_Archipelago, when the proud'- Qreek made
frequent and desperatel'stro . ggles for. , freedom
from Moslem dominatinn, tu t th e midst of one
of the most appalling tease/Tres ever known
in Scio, little Garapbelia oat taken. by a mer
chant Turk and carried Col, Constantinciple,
with the intention of sllini i her, to be finally
presented to one of the Pachas. She- was
about -twelve, the elde4 of seven children.—
She had seen her parents, brothers and sisters
brutalifcut in pieces before her eyes by the
merciless sabre of the Turk, -rind herself reserv
ed for a fate worse than that of the loved
ones of her childbood'si horse. But . a kind
Providence seems to have directed Mr. Me!-
bournea steps toward Constantinople Oust et
a time to save the hapless girl, for a higher
destiny. -
Having occasion to sro into a bazaar one s
day, for merchandise, l e
saw what appeared 1
to be a child, sitting upon the floor, in a cor
ner, covered with a heavy silk cloth, so
be althost concealed from view.. Struck wi h•
her pitifuhaobbings, 13e inquired into 'the
cause, - and tipon being abown . tbe little friend-.
less orphan, and told' the story of her bereave
ment-and her intended destination, bought .
her for a hundred piastres, and adopted -her
into his home and heart. . .
At the period of our I visit s i he was nineteen,
Justin the first litush q warm, rich, spark
ling, Oriental beauty,,with a heart as fresh
and pure asthe crystallfountains, of be! island
home,-and an imMagination bright with Ar
cadian -pictures ottlieu Lure. Mr: Melbourne
educated her-atli - ctly in All ithe formitlas of
the English church, and in:observing these •
she had received -in fiefown way the Spirit of
the Christian religion, in --its simplicity and
effectiveness; and it hhd become her interior
lore, spreading to every out-post and illumi
nating every avenue tolthe soul, until the out
er and the inner life w re becoming one by
the glorifying' Wive ces of .ita light . end
warmth. Unfilled - with this life,. all rituals
and dorrmai become asi cold andiropotent as
dead bodies. Like the impassive form of the
R.uler'si Daughter, they must he warmed to
life by the miraculous and quiCkeding power
of Love. -, ' • .

One. evening, hceompanied by tier :father;

as - those soothing and harmonious interludes
have only full power to do, in-the weary and
monotonous life of the Valetudinarian. What

1 In one of our tailight nac6ds I had, uncon
scioonsly to both, •dropped, my book . upon
rny. knee ; - an we- were watching, all.4brorb
ed, their mov meats, giving ourselves up en
tirely to'the our "arid the occasion. Sud
denly, my friend broke the silence, by rather
soliloquizing than . otherwise.
"If I were a sybll,l should like .to read
that girl's destiny. 'She ii - F. religious, Benet.

selfish generosity , of her ardent nature,, she
will be willing to sacrifice lierself :or the ob

do. this.. She has establish:o a . standard of
moral rectitude which she can never attain,
and certainly -she inarries cannot.
He will not understand it, and she will be dis:.
appi'inted." -
"Bur," I interrupted,: "her candard had
better be high enough.' If not here, she will
attain it in another life, anti", she will, at least,
help . him. It the filet she • Will not
probably admit any affection into her heart
whi;h is not worthy to hoc4rie the form of
the higher love, which she Chas long ago ac
cepted." ,
"I don't know that," he Said. "There are
an many speciOus counteifetts . that it is diffi
cult for the beet, and most 'discriminating to
etect,.. upon a brief acqunintance, what a
longer osperiencemay-develop to their sor:

flattered pride. He will jest and trifle with
her feelings; it Will pain her .and provoke
hirn that she will nee Bohan t to his eiercis-
Mg his love of'power at wilh We shalt see l"
It was not long befOre we were advised of
Garaphelia's betrothal-to P i ma's-Larry. An- _
Oita, an int eresting ward o . t our kind. host,
brought us'the inteiligence,iwbich, she said,
had occasioned much sensation in the 'gay
circlesof.Smyrna. " She was ; herself, one of
the belles of the city, and, eyerythinecambin
*ed; a very attractive - girl Without being
. decidedly, handsome, she hed a sweet face,
self-possessed and.quiet in tier makers', with
a figure and temperament sot:newt:tat lymphat
ic, but aiih uncommon acuteness of percep
tion end ready tact;'a mu
sician itild linguist, a retentive memory, and
so accoratetaste,.which made her altogether
a very agreeable companion. She had-been
for a year engaged to a young Anserican of
fortune, of high birth and
,pbstti6n, who had
Only been waiting for her twentieth birth-clay

Hieplans were all corriplett;ci for. a_ tasteful
and elegant Lorne, 'to-which be might bring

by thai.tigidrule of right which' admits of
no expediency. for a
. merely Momentary grati.,
fieatien,-and repu diating all ;doubtfulmeans,
though they promise never Aso flatteringly a

Her vanitr.was-pleascd, aOd her ambitious
views sure of a future realization in'the Tres

chant,. and the arbitress cif his wealth and
Ikis.destiny. Re was fully .'concious of her
powers of pleasing, and stil(de,sirous to make
the Most of every opportunity to captivate the
gat Lothar& at the brilliant masquerades of
tbeCassinno; She had-Mei Larry, and had
ponetrated . sufficiently to the cold, indifferent
and protid' exterior to scielliat, through the
very weakness of his` pride' 4 he. would not,
whatever were -his -obligations 'to - another,
withstand_ the flattetin attentions otany irci•
man who hatllbe-tscit tdappittink him with
sweetaulitoissiveness to his love - of rule and
acknowledgement of his sUperiority, though
it ttab all a part . of the masquerading.. To
conquer such a power were a vletOry worthy
to beliiir last, though gained by petty arta
and unscrupulousness.
The summer. months were wearing away; ;
buc Garaphelia did not forget the invalid, - but
sent or brought the little'baaket with
its grateful-contents; sometimes relieved the his days by reading to him, and
'sometimes became bill companicm in a walk
to some of the pleasant localities of the neigh
borboOd, with which she was familiar. Yet
we saw Larry not quite so puncaually at the
wonted bour in their old trystin place on
the terrace. She always seemed cheerful, tho'_
perhaps a'little less talkative and ;ll:nary. I
found that ctly•friend had- become a less at
tentive-listener when I read, and watched
more earnestly for Garaphelia's appearance
at twilight, evidently annoyed and uneasy if
her lover was missing. -Plainly, what little
faith the hactin him was rapidly &widish
ing. •
Having occasion, one evening, lo peas
through, the lung, payed court which led
from the the house, I overheard two
voices at one of the inner gates in - very earn
est conversation, and -thought, as - I caught
now and'thenl a word, that I recognized the
sweet, subdued tones of. Annita's voice as I
approached, saying in . the. prettiest Greek,
"Yes, she is all youdmagino her," She has
genius, pripaiple, and unquestioned beauty.
But why does she not defer -to your superior
judgement in those,:matters, and allow you.
to act for yourself I You say you have told
her that she must have more confidence in
you, and allow you to hers unrestrained free
dom of will and action.. For what does she
chide you Frank I Skrcannot Surly, exact
of you all.of yisur lettscre time; .and neither
can shepipeat one of Our: character to be
willing always to account for his absence
Your manliness and iudependenee tbould
soon be comprothised. You are mistaken, my
gt?cid friend ; 1 do not believe that Garaphel
its exiicts'this. 'I
-know she Ii willing you
should retain one friend, whore you may love',
5$ a sister. Mr. Larry, when I env married,...l
I shall teach my husband that there are some
affairs pertaining to each that the other has
, .
no g right to inquire into." . ,
I had, by this time, reached the stone atAir-
Ose which led up to the.ball, and passed in
to the house. This, then,. I thought, probably
accounts for Larry's absence -so often ken
the 'terrace. rielated what I had .heard, to
my friend, who seemed every- little surprised,
not doubting for a motn'ent its being Annita
and Frank Larry. Helesolved 'to relate the'
eircumstaneo to her, and ward her against
arty intervention whatever in d _matter so
nearly affecting the happiness of her if' iend.
Ile•sidl so ; but with ber sweetest manner
She promptly denied all knowledge of the af
fair, convincing me at. once Of her innocence
and of my mistake. I was a little ashamed
of basing preferred a Charge implying so
much agniust
s lier honor, especially as, she
here the wrong with such unfeigned amiabili
ty. 'concluded at once ttnit our interest in
Garappelia had made us to careful of the.
rights of others, and resolved'in future to keep
all such surmise, myself. Particularly
did it strike me as folly when I 'considered "
that, as Anuita said, these intrigues' were of
constant occurrence in the
.daily life of the.
indolent coquettes in' the neighborhood,
-In the course of a few weeks, on
.. one of
those fine afternoons when the refreshing ini-
bats were blowing up thebity, and the atmos
phere and the sky presented that ,peculiarly,
blue transparency so common to that
country, my . friend BarringtOn,took iny arm
for a stroll on the Marino, a promenacie which
stretches along for some distance by the wat
'er's.side. Here you have an • extended view
of the beautiful bay, alive and jubilant with
barks, from whose roasts the Begs o every
nation-are unfurled, and whose kee' s

through the pillars of Hercules up to‘the city
minarets and mosqnes, anchored awhile amid
the classic isles of the Egeao, and at lark
dropped into till - a delightful
_bay, unsurpassed
in the tinted glory of its sunset sky, in every
natural beauty' evert. by Naples itself...Tbe
graceful calques skim over the waters, every:
where daneinglike arrows around . and ' be
-tween the stately ships; • the turbaned and
calpacked Turk and Armenian; the gaberditi

'their fruiti here, there and everywhere. ', The
street-is a picturesque rneeleyifrom the canto
French girl with her flaunting fldwera and
ribbons, the voluptious Greek with her .low'
bodice and scarlet fez, encircled by her rich
and ample braids of black heir, the plump,
roiiy English woman with per quiet dress, and .
the pretty. Jewen to the most nondescript of
all; the Turkish mimeo,. wound up like a
huge,roll of flannel du.lier long robe, inpene
trebly veiled,lunaberiog along with no visa ,

lay Cam Carithourne, with . its undulating
hills and sundy vineyards boyond, - andin, the
background of the City the - limpet, OD whose
Skit, shepherds were grazing their flocks,
where may still be seen the traces . of a large
