My God! r.ot a dollar left ! My poor pittance
is all gone, and I have not a penny to pr.y this
bill with," exclaimed Henry Standish, as he
crushed un a bill for board, which his landlady
Lad just handed hiin.
Throwing himself into a chair, he covered his
faco with his hands, and wept like a child.
When the strong man weeps, the heart is in
deed touched. The young man had been four
weeks in Boston in search 'of employment. Ho
was a native of a thriving town in thc northerly
part of Vermont. Well educated and of good
address, he was qualified for thc mercantile bu.-.i- j
nC3s, and his thoughts had always been turned in
that direction.
For several years previous to his departure
from home, he had been ' employed in a store ;
but thc sphere was too narrow for his ambition.
He longed ftr the excitement of the great metro- j
polis, which he doubted not would furnish him a
field co-extensive with his capacity and histie
eircs. With only a small sum of money, for he doubt
ed not that he could step immediately into some
lucrative situation, he bade adTeu to thc cherish
ed home of his childhood, and departed fur Bos- j
ton- I
Arrivcd there, he frjndhis prospects not half:
60 encouraging as he had expected. He had ap- j
plied for several situations : but having neglect- J
ed to bring with him testimonials of character, '
no one would employ hiia in :

and not until His 4
exhausted did he awaken to j
scanty means were
4he full sense of his unfortunate position. I here .
seemed to be no alternative before him . but to ac- j
ecpt a situation in some menial capacity, a step j
at which his pvide revolted.
nis landlady had handed him her weekly bill j
for board. It was only five dollars, but all his ;
money was spent, and the consciousness of his
misery went over him like a dark cloud.
Retiring to his room, he vented his tad feelings
in exclamations of bitter disappointment.
now now, Standish ? What U the mailer"
exclaimed his frienelly reoiii-mate, as he entered ;
the apartment, and discovered the misery of the
disappointed young man.
Henry raised his head, and thrust forward the
" Fudge ! you are not makiiag all this fuss
about that bill, are you V -
I have not a dollar left." .... - "
" Cheer up, man ; I will lend you a V," said
bis kind hearted " chum," drawing his pocket
book out, and taking therefrom a bank-bill. '
" ' Nay, nay, Joseph, I cannot takeU."" I know
aot that I should ever be able lo repay you," r
jli4WnrT, Vrttwdy.
" Nonsense, Standish ; take it, -whether you
ever pay me or not."

Henry, brightening tin.

" To come here

j tlie otlmr, consulting his watch.
Mr. Harding was a broker, to whom Henry
had several times applied for employment, and

was in a fair way cf being accomplished.
j A servant girl announced thc broker.
" lie would come up, though I tried to ir.ake

'' Walk in, sir ; my apartment is but an hum-

' " No apology, youp.jjinan ;you are not r.l'.tie,"
j returned the visitor, glancing at Henry's chum.
Joseph retired to an adjoining room, which

' Ycuarc well formed ; the women say you '

Henry paused to consider. Thc idea of becom
ing a parly to such a nefarious transaction, was
repugnant to every manly lit !1: within him.
But he had sworn an oath, whi. h sealed his lips
so that he could not -expose the plot, even if he

" That was a precious scheme!" exclaimed
Joseph, as he re-e-ntcrtel thc room,

Mum, Standish ; I am not so nice about such
things as some folks. I congratulate yen cn your
good fortune, and when you come in possession,
I hope j-ou won't forget old friends." ;
" I certainly shall not," replied Henry, relaps
inc into a rcvery.
Mr. Harding aceompauktl Henry Siandih to
the residence of his ward, and presented hiin as
a highly esteemed young friend, for 'whom he
claimed her special favor.
" Your friends shall always be. welcome, uncle
Olied," said she, taking the hand of Henry.
Her uncle ! great heavens ! is it possible that
man can plot the injury of his own flesh and
blood! -
Mr. Hardin! withdrew after a brief conveia-.
tion, leaving Henry to win his w ay to the heart of
the heiress. ' . ' . "
There was that iu the eye of the young man
which is irresistibly attractive to a young maiden. ,
H wa wfcU f;rmil, with a handsome fuce, a ma- j
sical voice, and a winning manner. Amelia was
strongly prepossessed in his favor from the first
moment she saw him. - '
II enry, perceiving his advantage, followed it
up with energy, and ere half the evening had
passed a ay, had produced an impression on the
heart of the maiden, which fairly opened the way
for a conquest.
But he could not but reproach himself for the
part he had accept! , and though he felt that his
intentions Were good, tne consciousness that he
j appeared before the penile enl in an assumed
I character, was anything but agreeable to Lis lof-
j ty sentiment.
Amelia was a beautiful girl, and II. my felt ;
that to beloved by her, was to him the delishts 1
of paradise in the midst of the cold, ft owning !

In a lew words, Hetivy acknowledged tlic utter

him. and gave her the history of his past life.

" But I am a bcar."

Henry folded heriu his arms, and imprinted a !
tender kiss upon her lips.
" Xav. love, fortune shall redi-i m ns from n
urv ; we shall yet be happy."
I have it. and Henry s brow contracted with j
the w eight of a big thought, which had suddenly
invadcel his brain.
' Have Wh.-t, elear Ile-nry ?"
On the fallowing day, Henry and Amelia left
for New York for what purpose the imaginative
reader can easily divine.
The first intelligence that Mr. Hardin-' received
- c - -
of the marriage, he obtained from the newspaper.
Hastily leaving the office, he ir.aele his way to
the residence of thc heiress, which she occupied
with a maiden aunt, as her companion and house-
Tne happy couple were at home, and Mr.
Harding was in high glee at thc success of hi? 1 In his calculating bnua. he commended j
