no better things. Her parents had been poOr,
and had to work hard even to get 4omething to

to a huckster woman, who gave her hard work
and worse treatment all the day long :the had
to do et erything—wait in the shop, ruu errands •
to carry things home to the customers, work
abdut the house, wash roil dress the children,
and wait on them, and twenty other thinr . be-

_was tired enough ,
sleep soundly when she was allowed to go to bed,
even on that miserable pallet.
By and by, while site lay there !sleep, a boy

bade herbegone at oboe to carry them home.—
So Mabel; all barefoot as she was, and with only
a ragged hood and an old scanty cape to protect
her from the driving sleet, started out upon her
errand. Poor child, it seemed a hard thing to
have to contribute to other people's enjoyment,
and she so miserable herself '. She thought how
beautiful the lady's parlors
_would he, adorned
with the wreaths, to make which lo r poor fin
gers had been torn and wounded; how richly
the crimson holly berries would shine out from
the dark leaves in the brilliant light, and how
happy children would romp about the rooms,
nom thinking of the poor child who had come
barefoot through the snow to bring those
wreaths. It was no wonder that bitter tears
started to her eyes,' - and wild, rebeUions mur
murings against God's providence rose in her
It was a lOng way that Mabel had to go, away
from the little, narrow, crowded streets, with
was ?limiter, up into a faihionebti
, quarter of the city. She did not know her way
very well, and had to look up often to notice- the
-numbers of the houses; and once, looking up,
her eyes met those of a child not older than her
self, standing by a window, inside the curtains.
What a contrast between the two chi!dren!--L
Mabel starved, and frozen, and miserable, bare
foot in the snow; and the child at the window,
,I beautiful as a dream, warm and rosy, and richly
dressed, standing amidst folds of lace and velvet
drapery of almost royal splendor. Yet the beau
;ltiful child looked down kindly upon poor Mabel,
•and smiled, and Mabel smiled back again, for the
:j child's look had been like a sunbeam shining
Idoirn into her eyes. Then the child beckoned
jwith a little white hand, as if for Mabel to come
to her, but Mabel did not dare to mount the•
itaarble steps of that splendid mansioti. The
'ehild raised the window-a little, and ea/led out
:to Mabel, "Stay till I come," and so ran away,
;Presently she was at the hall-door, calling Ma
hel to come to• her, so kindly, that Mabel quite
-encouraged, came up the steps to the little lady.
"Now *mid you must be!" exclaimed the
child. compassionately, taking Mabel's frozen
finger, in her soft, rosy hands—"with no cloak
lon, and no shoes either! Why how could your
Imother let you go out so?"
Mabel put her hails over her eyes and bunt
into tears. "I har'n`rani mother," she sobbed;
but it Via not tha4 thought, so much as the un
accustomed words of kindness, that made her
bo sorry," said the child' pityingly; but
don't cry, I haven't got any mother either; I've

me everything i want. So if I want some niel
warm clothes for you he'll give them to me I
know. But you must come in first and get Warm;
and.put your basket down . here--T wouldn't (mi
ry that basket any more."' .
The child took the basket and set it down .
cei the steps, and then drew Mabel , into the Camel
across the ball , and up the broad, carpeted stair
case into the drawing-room, where she had been
before . Poor Mabel' she stood bewildered with
astonishment and admiration in the centre of
that beiutiful room It etemed to her a dream
of fairy land; she had never imagined the exist-
Loci: of such splendid things. The velvet carpet,
sr, rich and glowing, into which her bare feet
sunk at every step, the luxurious conches and di
vans, and the mirrors reaching from floor to ceil
ing, the gorgeous curtains and the pictures and
statutes, and the beautiful trifles scattered around
upon the marble tables—every thing was new
and wonderful to Mabel. She looked. down at
herself, in all her tatters and misery, and then
with a bitter sense of the cruttnist between her
self and her surroundings, she would run wildly
from the room, from the house: out into the snow
again What business had she there! but the
lady held her hands, and - drew her up to ,
the grate, though the silver bars of which the
glowing coals shed such a warm crimson light.
A large cushioned chair stood before" thegrate,
and in this the child seated Mabel; then she sat
down upon an ottoman by her, and asking her
- what your mune is, little girl,"

I can do something for you.'
And so Mabel did tell he ;all the story, and all
that Abe had 'to bear; how; she was cold and bun
gry always, and badly treated, and scolded nod a l
beaten at home. Andlhen little Adelaide eried
With pity and. grief for the poor little bastard
and Mabel cried too—it was no nansual a thing,

to tears muck more nMaily than harsh woks or 1
ill-usage would have

children sat; all alone, for no- one had been
the room all this time; and Mabel, in talking
whit Adelaide, had forgotten all about 'her er
rand, and bet basket 'of evergreens that she lad
left upon' the door4tep, and that she had ataid .

"We'll go and see," Adelaide said, and they
went down to the hall door again and opened it
to get the basket, but the basket 'urine. Some
one had plaited by and taken possession of it, and
it was no 1139 to look any further for it. Poor
Mabel burst into an agony of griet She knew
only too well what would be her fate if she had
to go back without the basket, and without hay

her. •
"Never Mind about the basket, Mabel," •tho
said; "r wouldn't care for the basket or the peo

down in ber shame and shyness, but for all that
the old man could see that the face she was try
ing to hide was acery lovely one, with its large,
sad eyes, and the delicate, month and chin; even
though the stain of tears was on the cheek, thin
and pale from want and suffering, and roughened
by constant exposure to wind and weather
"Where did this poor child come from, Ade
laide!" be asked wonderingly
"Why, out-of the street, grandpa, where she,
was walking in the snow with her naked feet:—
Only think .ef it, grandpa," exclaimed Adelaide,
indignantly—"the people she lived with sent her
out to sell evergreens, and I saw her from the
window and brought herin. And oh, grandpa,
I want you to promise that she shan't go back to
them any more—won't you? .Mabel is too good
to go back there, and I want her to Stay with
me always, and get dressed in some warm frocks,
and be happy apd comfortable Mayn't I keep
her, grandpa? say!" - .
'How could he refuse the eloquent little plead

childish lips, and the voiceless; but most earnest
pleading of those sweet eyes uplifted to his, all
wet with their recent weeping? ph, grandpa
loved• Adelaide too well, and he was too good and
kind-hearted himself, to deny her prayer long.
I need not tell you of all the questions that he
asked Mabel, and of all the. answers that she
gave him, but only that from Adelaide's plead
ing, and his own conviction of the child's lona
mace and truth, written so-plainly as both were
on hei sweet face, the old man consented at last

the poor rigged Child who bad stood trembling
there before. Now she had had a nice' bath, and
was so prettily dressed from bead to foot in gar
ments richer and handsomer than she' ever dream

and her pretty yellow hair, parted ,evenly from
he i r forehead, and clustered wavity around her
neck; her neat dark merino dress to

looked so pretty aad unit that Adelaide was Per

So this was the eceameneenteeti of Mabel's

SATURDAY NFORT.—tilirbit blessed things tlit
urday Nights are, writ& some one in the Tribune,
and what would the world do without-them?—
Those breathing momenta in the trukeieg march
of life; those little twilights in the* and gar-
Mk glare of noon, when pale . yesterdays look
beautiful through the shadows, and faces "chang
ed" long ago; smile sweetly again 'in the huh;
when one remembers "thtr old folks at home,"
and the old-fashioned fre, and the old armchair,
and the little brother that died, and the Kttle
sister that was "translated."
Saturday Nights make people bnman; sets
their hearts to beating softly, as they need .•
before the world turned them into war drunin,
and jarred them to pteces with tat toes.
The ledger.cloees with a crash; the irotadoored
vaults come to with a bang; up go the' stutters
with a will; click goes the key in the loci It
is Saturday night, and business breathes free
again. Homeward, ho' the door that haa.lieen
ajar all the week gently closes behind• hiti; the
world is shut out. Shot lint! Shut in, the rrAh-`
er. Here are his treasures after 'II, nig hot in
the vault, and not in the hook—save the old fam
ily Bible—and not, is the Bank.
Maybe you are a bachelor. frosty •and forty.—
Then, poor fellow: Saturday Night's nothing to
yoa, jest 'eyes" are nothing to anybody. Get
a wife- bhe.eyed or black-eyed. lost above all
true-eyed—get a little how, no matter bow. lit
tle, and a little sofa, just to hold two, or two-and
a-ludf, and then get the two, or the twested-a
half is it of a Saturday Night, and then reed
this paragraph by the light of your eyes,
and thank God and take courage.
The dim and dusty shops are swept up, the
hammer is throw down. the &prole% doffed, and
Labor hastens with a light-step, homeward bound.
"Saturday Night!" feebly murmurs the latighisit

In returning from a trip to the Lakes, a. few
days since, I wienuesetta little affair that makes
quite an item in In
. .note book, and may amuse
your readers. After a weary drive, in a process
sion of twelve carriages that moved solemnly for
' twelve hours over as many miles of beautiful
country, we pulled np in front of thr "National,"
lin Springfield, at about 7, P. 31. The Circ . am
and Court kept that beautiful little town in a
densely populated state, so much so, that the
sixty or seventy pa gingers that I conattkl - as
(raveling-companions could not find beds to rest
their weary limbs upon, but were forced to wke ,
carpet-begs, trunks, juleps, until th* , cars for
Cincinnati would givz.t Us more oorefortable (pars ;
tees. Among the rest, a little Yreuchtuans
whose baggage emulated of a queerly-shaped het
box and a faded silk umbrella, moved restlessly
about with the box in one hand and the nmhrels
la in the other, pouring-forth an uninterrupted
stream of incomprehensible English, in a Way
sufficiently ludicrous to amuse two crowds.
denly, the little garlic worshiper discovered, to
his utter dismay, that he had lost his ticket, par
chased at Buffalo, anti warranted to carry him
through to the Heurie House in Cincinnati.--
Here was a predicament : and, in the consterna
tion of the moment, he dropped both hatbox and
tunbrella, and vociferated loudly, and in razor 1
grinding tones, for the stage agent.
"Pere is de stage agent Vero I shall find'
de agent? 0, mon Dieu—mygar--1 have pay
one—two—four—several—sgreat many dollaires
for von teekets rich I have no get. Who have
peek up my teekets ?—who have find him ?—i

•It so happened that M... I.—, the gentle
manly stage-manager and out-door builness man
of the Cincinnati theatre, was one of our passen
gers; and at the time of Monsieur La Frog's
deepest digress, was standing in the moonlight,
in-front - of the arms, talking to 'a number of
friends, when some. mischievous wag pointed
him out to the little Frenchman as the stage

up hisliirblix umbrella, and' reaching the

out at full length, he was soon in the land of

foundered in whole seas of frog-soup.
In the morning, soon afier breakfast, we were
all comfortably seated in the - cars, and tearing

In the ; meantime, C rk had advanced in pears :

As the popular maniof a powerful party,lac was
sent a delegate of die d territory to C . :ingress.—
Here he soon forgot the poor Citole girl, and be

lovely Miss Canton, of Maryland, a grrldatigh
ter of Charles Carr I, of Carrollton, :who after
wards became the Marchioness of Wellsley.—
She was a great belie, and Clark's fine manners,
distinguished position, and great wealth, no
doubt render e 4 hi* quite a desirable match for
so brilliant d accomplished a beauty. They
were engaged ; but some stories of his enemies
caused a sudden termination of their refations.—
