its of that much disputed point—lmprisonment
for Debt. But, as haVing some bearing on the sub

forms a very serious objection to such a mode of

Inflictions of those laws be for retaliation only,

The firm of Melbourne and Son was for many
years one of the most respectable in the mercan
tile city of —, and it well merited the credit
it possessed. A clear head and honest heart made
the elder Melbourne a fit associate for tho unsus
picious and warmhearted Henry Melbourne, his
only son. "I do not wish to mako you sly and die.

ry, upori them:
Some time after the death of his father, whose
assistance in the businetts . ofthe firm, was missed
by Henry as much as his friendship.and society,
he found it necessary to associate himself in part
nership with a person who had long.been on terms
of intimacy with the familY... Mr. Horton, for
such was his partner's name, presented an appear.
ance ofthe greatest candour and integrity, in hie
demeanour, conversation, and ccriduct, and Henry
was led to piaci) the most implicit confident:to in
his management of the affairs of the firm.
The unsuspicious • character of Henry Mel

specious appearances than his partner presented
--.foslie_ WO; in reality a most iierfect and aeon ;
plished villian. He had for many years been a
professed gamester; ono of the most desperate
and daring character—yet, had so skilfully and
successfully thrown the cloak of hypocrisy over
his proceedings, that no ono even suspected him
of the practice.
Sipco the time when he had connected himself
with Henry Melbourne, ho`had what istechnical

which he had involved their own house, far beyond
what they were able to meet, he had committed a
forgery, on a firm of the same city, and that to a
largo amount. There was reason to suppose, there

" The effect of the letter on the walked Henry
Melbourne, was too violent, and sudden to permit
concealment from her who must be the sharer in
his wretchedness. It fell from his hands, and he
sat with a vacant gaze of horror—unconscious for
a time of the nature or extent of the evil which
had befallen him—a state of mind which sudden
calamity induces,resembling - tho stunning effect
of a violent blow. But the sensitive perception,
and tho keen anguish soon followed. He took up
the letter—again perused it, as though doubtful if
his eyes had not deceived him; but alas! it was
all too certain, and his .heart sunk within him. A
moment the thought came over him, that ho should

mour 'would have assisted him in
mont in the world,—but be wished him to feel'
the consequences of his-former folly.
Whether it might be called folly or imprudence,
the Tact was evident that he did feel the conse
quences of it—it had shaken the foundations of
"his constitution to their very base. The ingrati
tude of some, the reproaches of others, and the
meek resignation of his Carolino to her sadly al.
fored lot, were sources Of that ceaseless "corking
care," which preys on the body's health slowly,
but surely, till the work of ruin is complete. To
the tearful oyes of Mrs. Melbourne every day ex.
hibitcd some fresh token of her husband's declin.
ing state. His hollow eyes, and sunken cheeks
and temples, with the bright hectic flush that
came and went, as the slow fever which was con
suming him prevailed or subsided—spoke IL. lan
guage too plain to be misunderstood.
Ho attended to his business with unremitting
assiduity, but ho• was fearful and aniions lest evil
should again bofal him. The society of his wife
and, child had become dearer to him than ever,
and he conibssed that misfortune alone could have
taught them the worth ef each other's affection.
But the last vial was yet to be poured out on
the head of the unhappy Homy Melbourne. Cau
tious as ho had been, he became from the failures
of others again involved; end though to a trifling
amount, it presented him with the horrorfrofa goal.
His father-in-law, Mr. Seymour, on this second
failure, became exasperated, and confirmed in the
opinion ho had before entertained—that the whole
was attributable to the negligence of Melbourne;
and though ho did not close the door on him, late
did that which had the same effect on s est df
Henry Melbourne's spirit,---he made it evident to
him that he was not welcome. : e
The day preceding. that which was to bring
Henry the 'alternative of paying hu bill, or going
to prison, ho spent in fit , w4less applications to
friends; he got abtreutanetiW pity, but no help—
all were winkle, no one sage; and tete:reed
home, tired of foot and sick at heart, to gaze on the
saddest portion of his gloomy proipectL--the wife,
with her nursling babe, from whose society he was
so soon to be torn. •
"Hive you got the money, Henry'?" was the
question, with which', icz quick, but whispered
tone, fAie met him on the threshhold; and with
suspended breath she awaited his delayed answer,
At that sound, hot fortitude fora few moments
failed, and she sank a lifeless form into the arms
df her husband.
With returning consciousness, came again that
enduring spirit whichlruirrustained-her4hrough
the protracted trials of Fortune. "I will see my
father," said Mrs. Melbourne, "I will - tithe my
babe with me, and its• laughing-eyes-shall plead
with the tears 4 , 25 mine, the cause of the blanieless,
though unfortunate—he cannot deny his aid to his
own child any longer."
She was mistaken. Mr. Seymour was an ad
mirer of justice and firmness. - He--thought his
filitrvor haa been imprudent, and accounteaAjust
ha should suffer for his folly; and it was now a
inattor of pride with him to persist l in his Brutus
like severity, in spite of his daughter's heart
searching appeals on her b i psband's behalf.
"Ho must go to a gaol then, dear father."
"He sought his own way there, Caroline—it will
teach him discretional,'
"But consider his health, sir; would you have him
lose his life . in a gaol?"
"Your fears aggravate the evil. We will take
care matters do not go so far as that; I will assist
him yet; but ho must take a lesson first, my child,
to know how to profit by that assistance.".
With a sad heart, and sorrowful step, Mrs.
MelbOurne te.enterod the door of their humble
dwelling. Henry Melbourne was !lacing :the
room, pressing his thin white hand on his still
paler brow, turd apparently 'lost in thought. A
momentary gleam of hope lit up his countenance,.
but his wifefs look told him sho sad truth—the fail.
ure.of her endeavours.
"Have you no friend yet entried i my love?" in,
quirod Mrs. Melbourne:
"Yes," said Henry, "I now remember - tlmre is

a delicate and gentlemanly feeling, ho rose, and,

A paleness, as of death, Was on the features or

he was calm. '

The dreaded day came, and again and again
did Mre: Melbourne inquire concerning tho last

still spoke of him, but it was with a strange mel.
ancholy tone and manner.
"Has ho promised to come?", asked Mrs. Mel.
"Ho has promised, my love."
"But when—when, Henry 7" .
"To•night? oh,_ gracious Heavens! to-night,
'Henry—you will be in gaol !" For the words

"It matters not!—tonight ho rain come !" said
Melbourne in a positive and solemn manner.
Early in the morning the arrest was served on
the unfortunate Henry. When the moo entered,
his wife was sitting beside him weeping, with her
head reclining against his tihoulder, and he had
his darling infant in his arms. .
"I will attend you," said Melbourne.. "Carp.
line, take our babe—she must not go to prison too!"
With faltering step he crossed the room and
taking from above the mantlopisce z. miniature of
his wife and child, gazed fondly on it for a short

Strange at the manner mut, in which the assu

The insidiousness of consumptive disease, is a
trite subject of remark. Like the undermining o
a building, the foundation of the
. constitution is
sapped away by it, till at length, as by a sudden
