stwe?, but this was so ba'IIy paid that
rhir united efforts were inadequate to
rlniy their wants, and finee airs. Mel -
vilie had becon.e too ill to work, M jra
had accepted a situation in a wholesale
grootry ia 1'ront btreet, where they em
ployed girls to pack aud label spices, Slc.
It was a great trial, this daily geparaliou
of mother end daughter for s'i many long
and weary hours the one so l-mcly, to
weak, fo suffering, the other blessed with
youth and health, but surrounded ly un-
congenial companions, aud exposed to all
the danoers and seductions of a hiT'ze cUv
at the very age when a loving mother's
companionship and vigilince were most
rciiuire-l. Myra was late to night, but
she cume at last. The wiud was so high
that tihe had scarcely strength to close the
dour behind her as she entered, staggering
under the weight of a large market bask
et. She quickly lighted a small lamp and
embraced her iootlicr.
''You are late, .Myra."
"Yes, mother, they have a large order.
Kortili and Eilc-n were a :'in absent, so I
fud their woik to do as well as my own,,
and co:i!J not get through till nearly sev-
en. It was pepper I had to pack, and
oh ! how it choked me."
' Por child ! pour child '" i
"Never ntiud, I wili make you some fire '
atiJ tc-li you all my adventurer, while the
'l';-ar child ! what advenf crcs-
t':cw itii.-fortuues have You uict

in; along Eulton street, where the lire
was, 1 saw all this nice wood, so I collect
ed it, f.i.d was t h mi L in it what a "mid narm
rouai it would make for you when 1 l-.-!t
myself seiied arouud the waist, iitid iu
another moment 1 was sirugg ing in that
hateful l!oh Grinder's; aruis, aud I but
mother, darling, I am here all safe, you
see ; do not look so scared and whits or I
sluli be airaid to tell you acyihiug."
"Go on, child, tell me all."
'There is linte more to tell, mamma
Two young men came up at the 'ime, aud
nac of tlieni, quite a gentleman, threat
ened to cane IIo'o if be did not release
me instantly. The companion of my un
kinnvu friend walked ou saying': 'l.e'

I anyhow.' Hut the gentleman did
heed hhu; and then when J!ob saw my
protector approach he sueaked t-fl like a
coward, muttering something I could not
hear. Then the gentleman picked up the
Wood which --as upset in the scuffle, and
Lauded me the basket wiih as much re
spect in if I hfd been a great lady, in
stead of a poor working girl."
"May God's blessing be with Lim for

' iuit, oh I mother, I have behaved
like a Io I ; I was so confused, so ashamed
I took the basket, nud looked up to thank
him, when who should I sec but the

he raised his his bat, aud as he Ig'fi me
gave me this card. See it is his uatue

Myra had kindled the fire, and secured
the banging shutters, aud, having; assisted
her mother to bed, and prepaired their

sat down to finish the hair net which her
pi. w u.ii.u n u
mother had commcuce l, and which had
to be completed that night, for the next
day was thb 1st of April ana she depcuu-
ed upon the money slit was to receive for
tiiem to pay the rent of the miserable
room they teuanted for the ensuiug mouth
and she knew she dare not ask tor her
wetk'is wages at the stc;6 before Saturday.
I Myra was indeed a creature of rare
, ad exquisite beauty. The rajs of th
! lamp, wbtttb ' B .m tie toantei p.ece,
j strt-ameJ upon her head, surrounaiog it
' with a p'ory sucli as llcniemlrandt lured
to picture about the heads of saints and
martyrs. -Ilcr face was in shadow now,
but her large lustrous eyes expanded and
' contracted with every emot:oD, ana were,
in color, as variable as tlif. heaving pillow i
- that borrows ils hue from the passing
shadows or the rOse-tiutcd sunbeams.
Strength end resolution might be seen in
! the Ctielv formed chin, vvitu lU deep dnn-
pie, contrasting with the otherwise per
fectly feminine contour of her beautiful
face. Ilcr cheek was usually pair, yet
possessing the pure marble whiteness of
perfect health, end hhe possessed that
greatcs.t charm of woman a voice low,
sweet, aud musical.
"Conic to bed, Myra; yon are tired.
I cannot bear to have you work so late."
'Yes, mother, I have nta'ly finished.'
The Leaned silk slipped through poor
Mvva's dexterous fji.oers; but it was Ions
after midnight belote the weary girl had
completed her ts;k.
Tim O'Uafferty, the druukard, came
staggering Lome froai the grog shop, bis
unwidcly form groping through the dark
entry, at-d be t-atoewith so .u force a.'.-a.ust
the door that the rusty I' r, whicv.
its only security, tremoica m us soon,
and Myra started iu alarm to her leet
but the drunkard recovered his equilib
rium i-ti l she Lea: J. him cur:'C and twear
till he found he was totbe creaking stair
way, thence to the room over hea l, his
heavy foots'ot s shaking down some of the
j plaster from the cracked Ceiling. Thcu
al! was still within the wretched tenement.
Myra's lamp flickered and expired, and
thoroughly ctiil'ca and exhausted, she
undressed iu the dark aud theu threw her
self down by her mother's side. She laid
awake for some time, thinking over her
meeting with Gerald Murkham, but at
last fell into a sound, dreani!cs3 sleep
When she awoke, she found herself gasp-in-j;
ami suffocating the room was full td
stm ke ii.cn, women and children shout
ing and shrieking. She rushed to the
door and succeeded iu opeuiugj it, but the
flames forced her back.
''Mother ! v ike ! the L'jt;?o is on fire !"
There was no reply. At this ui .ment
the window was burst open from the out
side, aud a uiau leaped iuto the room aud
would havp borna her away in Lis aruu.
hut she escaped from his grasp and fell
f tinting to the ground, exclaiming, ''o 1
Save her ! Save my mother .'
Was it all a dream !

on a luxu-

THE TEST OATH.
The pica of the PrcaKient anil two ot
three of Lis Cabinet Jlinijlcid for a re
peal or modification of the test oath is,
that there are not men enough, to be found
in the South to fill the nation a! offices,
who cart take the test oath. The Union
men of Alabama, however, effcotual'y ex
ploded this plea, by enrolling themselves'
and demonstrating by actual count that
there are, ia that State alone, nineteen,
thousand men who did not bow the knee
to Uaal ; aud the Judiciary Committee of
the House at Washington offer the further
Hict that there were fui4y-two thousand
meu in the Union army drawn from every
Southern Slate except South Carolina.
But the case of Mr. Giers, of Alabama,
recently made public, shows that the dif
ficulty does not grow out of lack of raen,
who can take the oalh, bat out of the
preference which the administration nat
urally Ice-la for men who wete tainted with
the llebeilitm. Mr. Giers was an sppii
caut for an appointment as Commissioner
for the collection of direct taxes iu that
State. lie bore recommendations signed
by Abraham Lincoln, Nov. EJ, 1?0:J; by
Andrew Johnson, Sept. "'), 1SG1 ; by
Gen. Thomas, May 14, 1SG5 ; and by
Gen. Grant. I'eb. 15,1806'. Mr. Andrew
Johnson endorsed Lira as ' a gentleman of
iiwcftity and respectability ; and one of
;hc .. .q C0UB,rv who f?aj g, tu
the Uiii-jo," and Gen. Grant gn looses him
as "competent aud reliable."
Yet this true, loyal, cotitp etcat snd ic
li;:b!e man was nut appoiute-J. lie was
willing and able to take the lestoaih ; but
he was thru-t aside aud the place confer
ted upon oue F. Yi. Sykes, a member of
the llebel legislature of AlaLaxa, and
v. ho cannot therefore take the test oath.
Aud Mr. McCulIoeb, through wb ,-se de
partment this appoictmeLt was madej asks.
Congress to modify or repeal that oalh be
cause he cannot find men, qualified for of
fice, who cannot tub-etijo ta it !
There is uo such dearth of loyal men
at the South as the Administration would
have us bel'iew. There are enough of
them an-1 to spare, for uii the national of
fices. But the trouble is they are not
Johnson men. They cau L.Le the te-t
oath, but do not belong to the ''Incorrupt?
iole Host." They find the rebels. towLom
they have been opposed for five weary
years, all full of devotion tu the President
and naturally enotigh they do not i ke to
foliow whera such men lead. Hence the
Administration ignores thecj, and asks
Congress to repeal the test oath because
it is an impossibility o 11 the national
offices otherwise. l'fbry Gazitte.
THE HOT FOUTIIE ilLLLAiE OF JEI5
It is scarcely necessary for us to repeat
to our readers, w hat is an admitted fact
among all seusible and observant men, to
wit: th nt the National AduiinD-tFcuim
I tb sires the release of ,efr' Vac's. We
believe that lavis would have beta set
at liberty before this time, had the elec
tions recently Lei 1 in several loyal States
went as the National Administration
plotted they should go in favor tf ' my
policy." The reault cf thu-e elections
having been adverse to the action of tho
Administration, it is now deemed advisa
ble to defer the Dock trial and release of
Jeff l'avis until alter the election has
been held in Pennsylvania. If the peo
ple of Pennsylvania elect Clymer. and a
! Copperhead majority la ttiu i.cgi-.taiule,
! the President will accept it as a decree in
favor not merely of his re adini.-sion of
the rebels to coual civil rights viiU ai.
loyal men, but a a decisiou in favor of
the release of Jeff Davis. Heuce it is
that the trial of Davis is deferred. The
authorities having the di.-pts.il of the
arch traitor, do not want to take the re
sponsibility of his release without a sup
port to fall back upon. Nor do they de
sire to take the odiut.i of Lis acquittal in
