[From Chwrobers' Jrurmsl.]
It was on a leaden-look leg 'evening„ in
October, 1856, that the fast sailing packet
Concidation steamed out of the harbor at,
Holyhead. Dark clouds were gathering
overhead, the short chopping waves
slapped the sides of the vessel impatiently,
and the thick flack smoke shot straight
from the funnel to the receding shore, as
if anxious to escape from the restless tur
bulence of the water, and from a sooty
canopy over dry land. - -
There were but few passengers on board,
and a drizzling rain sent them below
One gentleman alone stood his ground
upon the quarter-deck, and, comfortably
encased in a suit of oil-skin, puffed his ci
gar in defiance of the weather. lie was
a tall, fair-haired man, with a bright eye,
thin, high-bridged nose, and light wavy
moustaches, through which was seen a
good-humored but sarcastic mouth. lie
accommodated himself to the motion of
vessel like an experienced traveler, and,
with wel:-gloved hands deep in his capa
cious pockets, looked on the steersman,
the funnel, the lights upon the distant
pier ; and the vibration beneath him and
about him, with an easy and comfortable
nonchalance of manner that seemed pecu
liar to him.
Upon an obsequious and curly-headed
steward—who kept coming on deck, and
then diving down into the cabin upon
those purposeless e-rands which would ap
pear to be the continual employment of
those functionaries when on duty—pass
ing near the traveler he said: '• Have
you conic to tell me that I musn't smoke?"
"No, sir," said the steward, with his
usual deprecating smile ; " you can smoke
if you choose, sir : there's nobody on deck
" Very few passengers to-night," re
marked the gentleman.
" Yes, sir, very few, sir," replied the
steward ; " you're the only cabin passen
" Ant 1?" said the gentleman. "Then
I suppose I shall have my choice of
" V hichever you please sir, when you
come below. We've only one other pas
senger, and she's a lady "
“ rah !” said the gentleman, looking
down the sky-light, ss if to see his fellow
traveler were in the cabin. "I um afraid
we shall have a rough passage."
" Yes, sir ;" answered the acquiescent
steward ; " it does look very dirty to the
wind'ard, sir;" and heit'd down again.
The traveler lighted a fiTsh cigar, tossed
away his old one, looked at the white foam
in the vessel's wake and resumed his
march. Ile was naturally a gregarious,
companionable sort of a fellow, fond of
society, argument, the shock of opinions,
and collision of ideas. lie had hoped to
.meet some other well traveled man, with
Whom he could have smoked and chatted.
Ile felt that he should bore hiniselfalune,
and began to think about the lady who
was his sole compunion in the boat.
" I wish I knew her," thought lie; "we
could converse sonic, hours away Tw?nty
years ago, I should have considered this
quite an adventure. What fools men are
in their salad days! I should have tho't
that it way fete-that--had -thrown — us to- - -
,gether, because we wero destined for each
other. Perhaps she is married or old, or
disagreeable. I shall be horribly bored
until we reach Kingstown."
After half an hour's more walking,. he
looked down thelky•light•oncoagai„, and
saw a lady seated in the cabin taking tea.
"She dosn't suffer, a& all events," he
thought to himself; " I may as well.have
a look at her ;" and .he finished his cigar,
and deeended the brass bound steps lead
ing to the," candy."
. The lady about.whom be felt so inter
ested, was over thirty years of age, and,
despite a pallid. complexioiland languid,
inour I ful ; eyes, possessed great ,beauty.—
lier manners, were elegant:4od. refined ;
arid a tinge of exhaustion in her lace and
voice heigthened the sense of i.ubdued sen

wi ought sensibility and sensitive nervous
organization were writteri..in the constant
play, of her short thin upperlipi. and the
perfect taste of her - dress, - completeti -- ,the
charm of a very fascinating invalid.

It would be impossible to describe the
extent to which handsotrre Mrs Thirlby
was put out by this accident. Her face
darkened, and without losing its beauty,
looked a thunder storm—the ox•eyed Juno
wrathful with Jupiter.

I had from him last Thursday. He is on
a visit to my cousin, who was married 'to
Colonel O'Grady three years ago.'
The father took the letter, and ,held it
under the shaking lamp. The gale had
blown itself into a perfect storm, and
he could hardly keep upon his feet as he
read the large school-boy hand :

The letter was read and re-read till the
lines became bluired and indistinct, and
a deep sob heaved up from the father's
heart. as he stretched forth has hand to
his wife and said: " Maria forgive me I"
But Mrs. Thirlby remained silent and
"For the sake of our boy," he urged,
"the child of whose existence I was un
aware—till—till—forgive me !"
-" Do you wish to keep the letter ?" in
quired the 'wife.
"With your permission. Do you ever
speak to him about me ?"
" Often "
"0, Maria, let us be friends I"
Mrs Thirlby answered slowly and de
libeiately, with a pause between every
third or fourth word : After an absence—
of more than ten years—meeting so un
expectedly —you could not control—your
violent and sarcastic nature—l will NOT

•" Maria"—he tried to take her hand,
but she withdrew it—can't you forgive
" The past—yes: the future I will not
trust in your hands. As I said, when we
leave this boat—"
The stewardess entered the cabin sud
denly by the stairs leading to the deck.
The door was heard to luck behind, and
there was a noise overhead as of shutting
fastening. She staggered forward, and
said in a low, resigned, but trembling
voice: " If you wish to pray, do so at
once; we are expected to go down every
Thirlby looked at her for an instant,
then taking his wife up in his arms, rushed
to the cabin door.
" We are fastened down !" said the
stewardess with terrible calmness. "The,
crew is in Elio rigging !shall
_go to my
cabin and meet it there.- Oh, pray for
your soul's sake, for we have not long to
live!" She wont to her own little cabin
at the side, and shut the door.
Husband and wife were locked in each
other's arms. How poor and paltry seem
ed their enmities and jealousies, their
poisoned arrows of speech and verbal
victories ! Eternity was near them, and
about them, lashing at the_shaking ves-
sere sides, howling for theinin the wind,
roaring for them in the sea! the ship pal
pitated like a timid hare, as though eager
to offer human victims to appease the
hunzry elements, and save itself. Neither
spoke; but a long, endearing kiss pro
claimed mutual forgiveness—then heart
boating against heart, han 1 in hand, their
fingers intertwined within each other,
they knelt and prayed In his height of
health and pride of sarcasm, Thirlby some
times scofflid at religion, and ridiculed
his wile's strict observances with con
siderable humor—now, he felt sure that
she was right, and cheek to cheek arid lift
to lip uttered fervent prayers for heavenly
pardon and her safety.
Only once during the night the world
came back to" him, when he sobbed out .
"I shall never see my boy ? "
And minute after minute, each longer
than the last, passed away ,ev?ry succeed

A violent crash shook the ship from
stem to stern ; the cabin lamp fell shiv

They clutched tightly hold of each other,
and thought their time had come.
The night passed. A ribbon of
light in the horizon _ separated sea from
sky ; the gray grew whiter and more bright
—it was morning. Husband and wife
looked into each other's haggard faces;
they had thought they should never see
The daylight was an inexpressible re

pered the . wife, almost afrald , to trust the
sound of her own voice.
As she spoke, there was a noise upon
the deck, and the sounds of sea and wind,
and straining boards and creaking cordage
grew more audible. The cabin door flew
open, and the steward, wet as from a bath,
and his face bleeding, looked in. 1 t All
