Miriam Day was young—only seventeen—and
like all young people had more than a just idea

been pouring into ber ears the declaration that

would love,main.
Harry had not seen Miriam; and so Miriam
p ire. d on, nursing her wrath, and turning over
in her own mind what she would say to him that
evening when they should meet. That he was a
bade, deceitful man, she made no doubt The
lady was apparently an old acquaintance, or
should hav•• been, was plain from the familiarity
with which he treated her; and yet he had ire.
quently declared to Miriam that since Lib engage
went to her he had dropped all lady friends,
ev• n now, to the bowing ones• And, therefore,
when Harry Voorhes came in that evening the
conversation ran about this way Miriam did
not wait long :
"Did you have a pleasant walk, Mr. Voorhes?"
This was said with an assumed quietness, which
immediately instructed Harry in all the particu
lars, • lie knew there was jealousy, and as it
was a new thing he determined to indulge it for
a while.
Very pleasant, thank you," said Harry.—
" Did you ?" for he suspected Miriam had seen
" And pleasant company?" said Miriam
" Very," answered Harry. " Did you? '
" Yes '
" abe said, with well-acted carelessness,
" I met Morgan upon Broadway "
" Morgan?"„ Harry threw an emphasis upon
the name that needs explanation.
John Morgan had been a friend of Miriam's
brother—a brother wild, in the recklenese of his
'associations, those associations that degrade the
finer feelings, bad not scrupled to bring to their
bumble home this John Morgan, a wealthy, but
disgraced and wharaeterleas man; he had come
seeking Miriam as a wife, from the belief that
such a marriage Would tend to elevate himself
in the eyes of the world, while he should be get
ting a young, nd pretty woman. Beyond this
John Morgan did not think. He was willing to
buy, and on that ground only he placed the trau
'motion. What was hisagreement with Miriam's
brother was a portion of the matter which re•
meined between these two. He came, saw,
quietly made his offer, was refused, and as quietly
withdrew. His diplomatist after this was
Miriam's brother, who lost no opportunity of
setting before her, in the most glowing colors,
the great advantages that would accrue to them
both from such a marriage, And this was the
John Morgan whom Miriam bad met upan Broad
But Miriam had spoken wrong. She had met
John Morgan, but no word had passed between
them, not even a recognition; and eke bad yield
ed so far to that find of jealousy that she had
given Harry to believe she had walked Broad
way with John Morgan, the man of all men he
most disliked; and this was why he had said with
so mach emphasis,
" Morgan!"
"Of course, Morgan," Miriam retorted
"W - hy should I not walk Broadway with a gentle
man as well as you with a lady?"
" With a gentleman, Miriam John Morgan
Is not a gentleman." ;
" Do you think you,_ would dare say that to
Mr. Morgan's facer
How the words stung! "Dare!" What could
there be worse than call him a coward? Miriam
did licit understand this, or, in the insanity of
woman's jealousy, she did not care, and Harry
gasped under the imputation, and sat silent
No passion eau au•burry a woman to sacrifice

the influence, listens, sees, and waits; a woman
strikes prematurely friend or foe, and the blows
recoil upon herself. Miriam bad struck a dead

like, he would not give a weak answer, and so
he gave hone; arid Miriam, woman like, followed
up her victory

And the time went on. and Harry did net

at Miriam in sorrow, and oeised to press the suit

telling Miriam how they had Seen Harry Voor I

thinking, thinking all ay long, how, for the
gratification of one m... nt of willful passion,
she had sacrifioed a wb. e life
It is a common story ardly worth the telling,
that Miriam went on aloof from all those
things that would have 4istraeted her desire to
brood over the result oflher folly, and seeking
within herstilf compensation in thought and study
fur the society she ignortd And in the course
of years she began to locilt back upon it all as a

fore, did well with er labor She was a pet of
old Mr. Alison, who had been a_ friend of Miri
atn's mother, and with whim Miriam now lived,
feeling it home, as (eras one eo alone could have
a home, frt. Mr. Alilion was a good, motherly
woman; and Miriam sat in her little back room,
neat as a pin, and worlced away all day trying
to think of everything as pleasantly as possible,
and learning herself once more to sing and smile.

the impulsive following df this thought that led
Miriam to the door, as the stranger had passed up

papa, Senor Boreal, was sick; so Marie said. He
was good, and she loved him very mueh. Maze
na was dead; mamma died at home. Where
was home? Home was at Lima; and this was
the little Marie's information to Miriam, and the
commencement of their acquaintance, or rather
say love; the child instinctively clinging to her,
and looking up in her face with an immediate
confidence. It was a delightful little affection
that sprang up between those two. Marie spent
all her time with Miriam, even as Mrs. Alison
declared, to the excitation of the jealousy of the
father, who, daily sending his respects to Marie's
newly constituted friend, hoped that she would
not let the little romp make herself too much at
home. And such panegyrics as Marie poured
out upon the head of Miss Mary, as she called
her. This being her oonstruotion of Mirry, the
name Miriam bore with Mes. Alison.

and baby talk. A rambling dissertation upon
the beautiful playthings. Miriam bad put the
child in possession of all the hoarded stores of
toys which, in girlhocid, hadlbeen her own. What
a capital hand Miss Mary was at playing hide
and•go-seek ; how well versed she was in all the
extraordinary tales about "Hey diddlirdiddle,
the cat and the fiddle," of which, until this time,
Marie had never heard, and all those other won
derful things that Miss Miry Gould do, and of
which little Marie entertained her father in a con
tinuous rattle, and then she flew to join her
friend again. And Mrs. Alison brought to Mire
lam the compliments of the Senor Boreal and
his request that as soon as he should be able to
leave his room, that be might have the honor of
paying his respects to the fair friend of his
daughter; all of which, Mrs Alison declared,
was evoke° in tiptop English, with which no
fault cold be founi, uncommon as the thing
might be, and so, bleu the men, if be was a

would be forty years old, come next March, if
she had lived; and he paying a month in advance,
just as if she had no confidence, which the Lord
Marie under Miriam's tuition was improving
in her English. She could now begin to tell
Miriam about her home at Lima, and how she
once had a little brother who died, and a black
nurse, who wore such large ear rings, and who
cried so when Marie came away and went upon
her knees and begged to go with Marie, but papa
said no ! For why, Marie did not know, and all
this little prattle was delightful to Miriam who
grew younger under the companionship of Marie,
and always declared that hoe needle flew faster
through the silk to the musks of Marie's voice,
than when alone. Miriam too, became much in
terested in the invalid upstairs, even to a gene
eral superintendence under the seal of secrecy of
the numerous little jellies, and soups, that were
prepared for him, and an inquisition occasionally
of Dr. Wilson when they met, on the state of his
patient There was nothing the matter with the
gentleman the doctor declared, but the debilitir

And therefore the gentleman was to call upon
Miriam that afternoon, and Miriam east one'
two glances in the glass, and jest touched up her
hair the least bit, and then another dress, and a
small tura of quiet embellishment, and she sat
at the embroidery frame looking, as said Mrs.
Alison, "A perfect picture," though not so
young as she was onee't, and therefore more to
be thought on as approaching the gentleman's
age, for which happy consummation no one wish
ed so much, as herself, and would pray night and
day, gracious knows, for Mirry deserved all the
good luck an.old woman to whom she was more
than a daughter wished, and so Lord bless 'em
all. And Miriam looked very solemn over all
this, and bent down over her work, and ran her
mind back through all the vista of years, and
thought, and gave one little sob internally to the
memory of Harry Voorhes, as a tap came to
the door and the gentleman came in leading lies
tie Mary, who dropped his band on the instant
and ran to Miriam. Mrs. Alison had but just
began her introduction in most flowery firm,
when she was startled to such a degree that her
spectacles flew, as of their/own violation, half
across the room, for Miriam had startled from
her seat, overturning the embroidery frame, and
with half a scream, half an exclamation, said—
" Harry 1"
While the gentleman, with both hands for an
instant clenched, and held to his breast, repood

elude whether it was best to feint, or call the po
lice, they were in each other's arms, Miriam cry

gentleman saying, "What do you think? Why
just the funniest thing iA the world, and yet the

Miriam whom I had not seen so long."
And then Miriam cried, and sobbed worse
than ever, and so did Mrs. Alison, and Marie,
though it was all (}reek to them. And Mrs. Al.

instead of her eyes, sad took up little Marie io
her arms, and commenced an immediate search
in her pocket for something to give the child,
and finding nothing else bestowed her ancient
silver thimble on Marie in a great hurry with
many kisses.
The nest hour, when Mrs. Alison took little
Marie down stairs on a promise of unlimited nuts
and raisins, was a marked hoar in the life of
Harry and Miriam. All those thirteen years, a
lifetime, passed away like a mist, and they stood
together again as they had stood in the early
days; still Harry, and still Miriam; older, but
wiser, ohasteued, but true. A love had come

Three days after &pinking the Mews letter in

A few minutes before the sppolated time, Mr.
Defoe, having provided himself with a newel
paper, west to the place designated, took a seat
as requested, and sommensed - reediag. He SOP
observed a yeas, ma eater, walk DIM him, and

"Unfortunate," thought Mr. Defoe. "If this

While these thought' were passing through
his mind, an elderly gentleman, with a very red
