"1 thought I saw a face looking in-over the cur

such weakness, began to work, and hummed a
tune to beguile the time till her father's return;
but ever and anon her eyes glanced to the half
curtained window, where, if Any face were now
peering in, it must have belonged to that highly
privilegediefitlemon, the-man in the moon, who
was certainly casting very bright and familiar
glances upon Alice at the moment. Thus re-as
sured, she was resolved to prove to- herself, by
going and looking out of the window, that she
hadreonquered her apprehensions—when, most
mistakably, a foie again raised itself above the
edge of the curtain. Poor Alice clutched the

On rising from his ignoble position, and limping
• ,oftkamt.fotaaatismvisiter to tbsi gotiags,
he was aceosted by the new comer with "Re pm
little Cripplegait the miser, s ir?" 'rho dashing
defender or his enmity would, if' be could, have
annihilated the whole rave ~t' Crippleptaits at that
moment. •
"Rave you a message for my l'athet" asked
Alice of. the new vh-iter. with the composure of
simple innocence.
"Yes, miss: he's to he at the (eorga btu at
six to-morrow morning, to g's a short journey"
with a gentleman on partieular lupines-, and

"And no wonder," said another, shepacks,
up her tatters and follows the drum to .get off
from her old miserly father."
"There's one of the ),.track blades that wants

thoughtless but generous 'young man. .4hat

braiding, "and how can I atone?"
Scandalous tales, like mairoonts, spring up in
a night, and hare as many gatherers in the morn
ing. This poor Alice was about to experience.
Hoverer, in the meantime, her chief anxiety was
about her father's delayed return. She!resolved
not to mention the visit of the young officer eith
er to her brother or fatheiL4he former, she was
sure, would resent it by MOMe imprudent word or
act; and the latter, from his naturally suspicious
disposition, it would be diffieult to eonvince of
.her attire innocence in the Sutter. Alice had
never before felt so desolate and unhappy; tears
were stealing doles her chetahs—aced Alice was
not apt to give tray to sentaatental weakness; but
the idea of any one /deeming himself privileged
