the traces of anxiety and stfffering,which
lingered on the countenance of Mrs. M de

his altered fortunes.
" And is this all," , said Mrs. M. in a
gay tone ; "is it the loss of a few thou

hour, at did' house of re-: Deborah Green

"Have you heard the news ?", said she
after a few preliminaries.
"What news ?"
"Oh, only that Mr, M. has failed—pesi ,
tively Ibit every thing !—a great specula=
tor, they say. But do you know that it is
hinted that his habits - are, in secret; quite
dissipated, and that he has lost heavy sum■
at the gaming table ?"
•"Bnt," chimed in . Miss Greenwood,
"what is to liecinne of poor Mrs. M. ? she
will have to lower her pre!ensions; Tm,
"After all it is no such great pity," ob
served -Mrs: Marshall ; "I never could see
what there was in her more than in other
folks,'that every one should-go mad about
Mrs. M.'s good taste, and Mrs. M.'s good
temper,and Mrs. M.'s surpassing abilities.
Trust me, that when it is known that Mrs.
M. is poor, she will be no 'more courted
than any of us."
This very charitahle tete-a-tete was ip
. orropted by the arrival of another visiter
—;;Mrs. Bell. She . had more of genuine
kindness in her nature, and heard of Mr.
M.'s misfortunes with' unfeigned regret,
not excepting:his-habits-of _dissipation_and
the suggestions of wanton extravagance on
the part of Mrs. M. "I have been. a fre
quent visitor at their house," said Mrs.
Bell,_"at all hours, and have thought their
domestic arrangements amongst the best
I have ever seen ; 'and I have looked upon
them as a pattern of conjugal happiness."
After a few minutes spent in miscellane
'ous convet sation, Mrs. Bell appologized
for her short stay,.saying that "as she had
just heard of Mrs. M.'s misfortunes she '
'felt inexcusable in' appearing to neglect
her, at a time, too, when her mind must be
exceedingly sensitive on the subject:
- "Just like yourself," said Mrs. liar

This was a most • welcome communica

meta and experience of Mrs. .Bell would
materially_ aid her in maturing 'her private
plans for the future, To her 'thbrefo - re;
she made a plain and candid statement of
their circumstances ; adding that although
Mr. - M. hoped, by giving up all his effects,
to satisfy all just demands, Yet there
would be but a slender pittance left, and
that considerable time must elapse before'
he could be again engaged in any profit
"And now, my dear friend, continued
Mrs. M. " I am going to communicate a

of her friend, and promised to use the ut
most of her-influence - in her behalf.
It was -a r pleasant morning in the Month . _
of June.when, MO. Bell's carriage drove
up to a small but genteel looking -house in
the" . upper part of the city, and having 'a
lighted, gave ordprs tq the 'coachman not to
call for her until evening . :
She, wateshown into a neat parlor, where

enghged with a group of young' ladies,.
whom she was instructing in some fancy
work; but as the lesson seemed 'nearly
concluded she begged she might . not.be any
interruption ; and gently seating herself on
the sofa, took a leisure survey of- the scene
around her. The apartment : to some
would have seemed plhinly furnished, but
yet there was such an air of elegance and
refinement throughout, that iii"nZited her
to think of any thing lacking. Then there
was such a display of neatness and order
in t he arrangement that at once suggested
to the mind the idea of comfort—and — con=
, Mrs. Z—for she was the lady of the
