Some love strong rum or the ales white foam,
When the bung-bole whistle, free ;
And for right good cheer some tipple beer,

So cheerily forth 1 go,

Moos. and Madame Vslleret came down to
a retired village in Fiance, to taste fur a
few days the hifly influence of nature and

The visit was necessarily a brief one,
but her former companions all' followed
the carriage for some distance on its route,
offering their simple. flowers, 'and thei'r
heartfelt wishes for her speedy and happy
return. Affected• by their love, Pauline
leaned • back in a corner of the carriage,
and covering her face with her hands, wept
long and silently; such tears shed for such
a cause, were indeed a luxury. . 1
A lapse of several years must intervene
before 1 again commence my narrative,
nor will we inquire what were Pauline's
pursuits in the interim: It is a painfnl
task to. trace too- Minutely the progress of
demoralization and vice; 'to mark . the
plague spot of sin and misery, gradually
deepening and spreading over the once in
nocent and young heart, until every trace
of its early purity is efliceti. I shalt ab
stain from doing this, and return to our
heroine, who is now in full career of what
men call glory, and angel's sin! I
On the evening to which I would refer,
she stood before a crowded and enthusias
tic audience in the theatre at Naples, and
their tumultuous murmurings of applause
flushed the pale cheeks and kindled the
bright eyes of their universal favorite.r—
That night she had been more than usual
ly effactive, and the people held their
breath lest one note of that sweet melody
should bn lost. Suddenly the songstress
paused, and the air was abruptly termina
ted by a shriek; there was music event in
that shriek; it was the voice of human ag
ony. Many thought it but the startling
effect of premeditated art, but those who
were near enough to mark her- livid brow
and shuddeiing_ frame, felt it to be the lan
guage of irrepressible emotion. - She was
borne from the stage to - her own dressing
room,' where she soon recovered, at teast
the outward appearance of composure.'
"Vanvitella," she said in a whispei to
the handsome young * Neapolitan, who as
bending anxioquily over her couch, "return

young man who wore a green jerkin,:iind

"I saw that you noticed him."
- "You must bring hirti:tdme; I Weuld

The Count hesitated;- and Pauline, iper

his - brow, laid her whitejewelled hand up
on his, and added a ith a persuasive - ,i; ile—
"lt is an old friend , a country . it of
mine, 1 would ask if my poor. father is

Subdued - by the tears which dilmed
het beautiful eyes, the Count bowed and
withdrew to fulfil her request. i

She did not look up—she dare not.' The
door closed, and ,she was alone with her

the young man was unconscious that the
gifted, the beautiful, the idol of Nlaples,
was kneeling at his feet. • .

ing,'"tut ono word! Oh; in mercy, An
dre, tell me of my father." ,
"He is dead! Return'thanks to G
my girl, that he lived not to see this day."
The heart stricken Pauline uttered one
low cry, and fainting fell on the ground..
In the delirious fever which followed this
sudden shock, Count Vanvitelli sent fur
Madame Vilaret to take charge of j heir
late pupil, and their united care and atten
tion in time restored her to health. But
a change seemed to have passed over her,
the still small voice of conscience, had been
I -awakened, and refused to slumber again.
and both the- caresses'of Madame V illaret
and the love of the young Count were be
come hateful to her.
Alter a long interval, occasi..ned by ill
health, the re appearance Of Pauline Du
rant was announced to take pine& in tam
days, and a crowded audience assembled to
welcome back their favourite. But they
came in vain! After waiting s.tme time,
the manager made his appearance before
them, and informed them that there were
reasons to believe that Mademoiselle hid
recently quitted Naples. Vanvitelli was
like one distracted. tie offered rewards
for any intelligence of her, and despatched
metvengers in -all directions, but without
success. Pauline was lust to him and the
world forever. •
it was at the close of a beautiful Sabbath
evening, concluded in a way which may
appear strange to our ,English prejudices,
.by a dance on the green turf, that a female
form lies discovered moving onward with
feeble and tottering steps; it paused repeat

The-dancers suddenly paused, and gather

"Surely I should know that face!" ex
claimed a young girl, presing eagerly for•
ward; "can it be Pauline Durant?"
"Fauelton," said the wanderer, in a fee
ble voic4"flo not forsakeinel You all loved
-Pauline once; for the memory of those hap
py days, then, do not scorn me."
Her young companions wept, and kissed
her pale, emaciated hands in silence. There
was but one sentiment in every breast—Pit•
ty for the unfortunate: and they-taid among
themselves, '• we all know that she was once
innocent and good; but we cannot in ourig
mirtineegthaairorld, conceive the power of.,
those temptations which havelerltier to fall.
God forbid that we should judge harshly of
her, or scorn her, now that she is ill and un

it was the language of the heart, and worth
all the philosophy in the world.
At her request they bore her in their
arms to the cottage of Andre, and laid her

she could no speak: but the heart of her.

head on his bosom, and wiped away the
damps which gathered over her pale brow.
At that moment years of past sin and mise
ry were blotted out, and she was again his
own, his pure—and first and only love.
Suddenly Pauline lifted up her pale,:ran
face from his bosom, and shook back the
damp dishevelled masses of hair which had
half concealed it. her mind was evident
ly wandering , in the past, her eyes shown
with intense Instre, and she sang. 'lt was

have made her re-appearance in Naples.
The notes were beautifully, touchingly
