cate. We have just been deepiS , agitated,
excited--shocked! Happily for the rei,u-
Lotion of our place, the ulluir of which I
speck had a-gratifying termination.
In our boarding house resides an in veter
aie old bachelor named Wigley. Mr. Wig.
ley in by no means such 'a person as some
people invariably represent old bachelors
to be, neither in appearance nor disposition
He is a pprtly, middle-aged, good-natured,
fundovilig, sortable fellow, nod likes the
society of ladies fur better th-in three
fourths of the married men. Mr, and Mrs.
Piekleby are also of our comphoy ; the for.
titer a commission merchant, is a very quiet
and a very respectable sort of a inr.n; ex
ceedingly fond of his rife, and, withal, a
little inclined to ivalOUßy ; the latter is a
beautiful and afrectionate cr,ature, 10110
doles upon her husband, and iso't jealous
at all.
One day loot week, Miss Celestia Nobbs

Mrs. exclaim; and the next
moment 411 saw 'thnt lady pass beneath
her to meet a gendeman, of whom sh,
coahl get but a prtial view. Then a loud
Liss was giros, and Mrs. Pickle by said, in
somewhat lower tone of voice :
, Cents with me—come to sty toots ; it r.
Picktell is at his office, and l am alone.'
Then, both started to ascend the stair,,
tad Miss Nobbs hastened to withdraw in
to her room, but not before she had caught
abetter glimpse of the Iran with Ira.
Pickleby, and discovered, as she thought,
no other than Mr, Vigley. Ti,' •nt!e

I always thought there., was something

She sat for hull an hour in deep medita
tion upon the matter, and then she arose
and moved toward the door.
'lf the wicked, shameless creatu re thinks
said hiss Nobbs to herself-- , if she has the
faintest idea that such actions will be suf
fered in this house, she will find herself
mistaken, I can assure her.'
She heard footsteps without, and as she
passed into the hall, she Paw Mr. Wigley
descending the stairs, and heard hno leave
the houscl.
'Left her, have you 1' she uttered under
her breath. 'Well, well, I never expected
to see such things going on—never ! But
you'io found out—you'll known—both of
She hastened to the room of Mks Dobbs
on the floor above. Miss Dobbs is a con
fidante of Miss Nobbs, a few years older
than herself, and a few degrees thinner in
person. Mi-is Nobbs was gratified to find
Mrs, Briggs in company with her friend on
this occasion. Mrs, Briggs, I may as well
state, is a widow lady of some twelve
years standing, who had long endeavored

'Yes ; the sooner he hen his mind disn•

Forth, accordingly, the immaculate . trio
sallied as soon us they could make the no.
cessary preparations, and bent 'heir course
toward th, store of Mr. Pickieby, in the
loner part of the city.
The merchant was busily engaged in the
transaction of some business,when he saw
the three ladies approach him. He sus
pended operations, and inquired what hop.
py circumstances had brought them hither.
'lt is a sad errand on which we are
come,' saki Miss Nobbs, shaking her head
with a melancholy air.
'A dreadful errand!' affirmed Miss
Dobbs, dubieu,ly.
'A more dreadful errand you could not
imagine' added Mrs. Briggs, making a
strong etiert.te shudder.
'For mercy's sake, ladies,' cried the
alarmed man, turning pale, 'what is it P

the first spinster, 'we wish to n ssure you
that you bane our warmest sympathies--
that we feel for you.'

added the elder maiden.
"And nothing but a deep sense of duty,'
remarked the widow, "has induced us to
take the step we have, in order t o 'T ir e ,'
