They sat and combed their beautiful hair,
Their long, bright tresses, one by one,
As they laughed and talked in the chamber
After the revel was done.
idly they talked of waltz and quadrille,
Idly they laughed like other
Who over the fire, when all is still,
Comb out their braids and curls
Robe of satin and Brussels Lice,
Knots of flowers and ribbons, too,
Scattered about in every
For the revel is throuffb.
And Maud and .Madge in robes of white,
The prettiest night-gowns under the sun,
Stockingless, slipperless, sit in the night;
iror the revel is done,—
Sit and comb their beautiful hair,
Those wonderful waves of brown and gold,
Till the fire is out `•n the chamber there,
- And the little bare feet are cold.
Then nut of the gathering winter chill,
All out of bitter St. Agnes weather,.
While the fire is out andd - the hour is still,
Maud and Madge together,—
Maud and Madge in robes of white;
The prettiest night gowns under the sun,
Curtained away from the chilly night,
After the revel is
Float along in a splendid' dream,
To a golden ,gittern's tinkling tune,
Mile a thousand lustres shimmering stream,
• , In a palace's grand saloon.
Flashing of jewels, and flutter of laces,
' Tropical odors sweeter than musk,
Men and women with beautiful faces
And eyes of tropical dusk,—
And one'face shining out like a star;
One face hunting the dreams of each,
And one voice sweeter than others are,,
Breaking into silvery speech,—
Telling, through lips of bearded bloom,
An old, old story over again,
As down the royal bannered loom,
To the golden gittern's strain,
Two and two, they dreamily walk,
While an unseen spirit walks beside,
And, all unheard in the lover's talk,
He claimeth one for a bride.
Oh, Maud and Madge, dream on together,
With never a pang of jealous fear!
For, ere the bitter St. Agnes weather
Shall whiten another year,
Robed for the bridal, and robed for the tomb,
Braided brown hair, and golden tress,
There'll be only one left for the bloom
Of the bearded lips to press, n —
Only one for the bridal pearls,
'The rode of satin and Brussels lace,—
Only one to' blush through her curls •
At the sight of her lover's face.
Oh, beaiitiful Madge in your bridal white,
For you the rev.el has just begun ;
But for her who sleeps in your arms to-night
But robed and crowned with your saintly bliss
Queen of heaven and bride of the sun,
Oh, beautiful Hand, you'll never miss
• The kisses another bath won 1

Time's band is even there, sweet Kate,
Yet let the sign remilin—
It gives the no regretful throb,
• Nor should it give thee pain ;
• 'Tis very white, I grant thee, Kate,
Yet pluck it not, I pray, -
Why should thy loving heart regret
;\ That lam turning gray?
Four lustre's, Kate, have ta'cn their flight
Since thou and I Erst met,
And darken'd morns have oiled since then,
And murky suns•have set,
Yet light from that warm heart of thine
Ras been around my way,
And with so dear a guide and friend,
would again turn gray, •
The wife may view with unconcern -
Time's signet on the brow, _ •
Who ne'er gave to the wearer's heart
A single throb of woe,
And if angelic worth, sweet Kate,
Might keep the churl at bay,
Time nn'er had plae'd, in triumpli - tbcre,
his bauneret of gray. _ _
Then let the stranger live, dear Kate,
Amid its neighbors dark;
Until they too, iu turn, shall pale
Beneath the smoiler's marls;
'Tis very white,l,grant thee, Kate,
Yet pluck it net, I pray,
should thy loving heart regret
IThat I am turning gray?

Cc Mother, was that once ?"
" Yes dear," replied the pale .woman,
casting a long look at the splendid build
ing." you were born in that front cham
ber. ' But hurry on 'dear, it is ours no
longer. Hold your shawl tight about
your chest—this wind is very cold."
They- were meanly clad—both mother
and daughter. The mother was past for
ty a few years, the daughter not yet sev
enteen. Annie Low was not beautiful,
I nevertheless, her face - was a rare blending
of amiability and intellect. They passed.
quickly along over the well trodden.snolv,
and vended their way toward one of the
lower quarters of the city. There .they
traversed a long, ill-looking street, till
they stopped before a:narrow shop door,
I and, entered.

"Any work yet, Mr. Merely?" asked
the widow in a quiet tone.

et,lt t 'Atalaing.
. "Oh yes, niadam," . said the man behind
the . counter, ."we .have plenty of shirts
now. Shall - 1 gyve you a bundle ? " and
cast a glance, half impertinence half ad
miration; towards the young girl.
" What are your prices ?" asked - Mrs.
Bartlet. -
" Well you - know- we generally give a
shilling a common customers, but
as it's you, you know, why I thinli_Artfill
pa3i_ two shillings. Shan't I take -it home
for you? It's a heavy bundle, too niuch
for you to carry."
The widow hesitated. She had done
sewing for this man before, but she did
not like the way in which lie looked at
her daughter. A. mother's heart- takes
alarm at a hint, a question or a glance:
Antiie was too precious to 'be exposed to
rudeness; She was the orie, the• only fair
child of a widoWed heart—but the bun
dle was too heavy for either mother or
daughter, so she concluded to let it be
brought. .
. You can send it to us .by-and-by,"
said she. . •
" 0, I can't get anybody to take it—l
must go myself. No inconvenience, I as
sure-you—right on my way to . snpper.—
Missi wish I could offer you one of my
arms," he said, "but they happen to be
both full." • ,
They xv - alked on, till they came to a
very ordinary looking house, whose steps
were covered with children. - -The man
smiled. to hiMself as they ascended the
steps. .
I will take the bundle now," said she
with dignity. • • ..
- " 0 no ma'am ; couldn't consent to let
you carry it," said 'the man, "I'll take it
to your room." '- .
" Put the bundle down," said-she with
flashing eyes.
The man . started and nearly let it drop.
However; he threw it with an impatient
curse, on the lower-stair, and turned mid
left•the ball. .
" What made you speak so crossly,"
asked Anuic.
"Never mind, child. Help me up
stairs with it," said the widow, recover
ing her equanimity. • She had seen the
tailor wink across the entry to a vulgar
lookinf , man, who came out from a room
near 15:v, whose reputation was none of the
best. - .• •
"0 dear." It was said very bitterly,
and with a. heart ache, as mother and
daughter enter their own neat room,
an attic; lighted from
. the ceiling.
"It seems strange, dosn't it ?" mused
Annie; looking round. • •
" What seems strange, darling," asked
her mother.
" That you should have lived and I
have been born in that..great beautiful
.house, and after all be reduced to the
garret of such a place as this," replied
Annie. " Who lives. there now ?"
"Yon have heard me say before, child,"
replied her mother—"your Uncle . Harry-,
and your cousin Eugenio. Your uncle
Harry, your father's brother. married my
sister—poor Annie (you are named for
her,) °she died before your father did, or
we should nut ).o snaring in penury, or
be forced - to take insults from our infe-
"Well it is home," said 'the young girl,
gazing round, "and not so bad a one either.
"Now, it we can get those shirts done
—why, we can buy a beautiful thick
shawl to wear between us. Shall I make
sothe tea to-night?"
"Yes, if yob. please," said the mother :
sitting wearily down, "I'll undo the bun
dle and sort the work."
' " - Robert Southey, you are always stand
up: before that pieture."-
So cried a beautiful, high• bred girl, as
she entered the. splendid reception-room
where stood the young man, gazing upon
a sylph-like figure, enclosdd within a mass
ive frame.
Young Southey- turned around hastily
—a rarely intellectual face wag his‘,--and
greeted the girl with a smile.
" I cannot help admiring that pi'dure,"
he said, "it has a fascination for me which
I eannot a explain to.myself. Is there an
original,.or is it one of those gentle dream
faces that artists sometimes fashion, when
under the inspiration of heaven ?" • .1
" 0, it's no dream face," said Eugenie,
lightly, "but a cousin of mine, I lielteve
—that is, I have heard papa say so. She
is living now I •believe„but dear me, they
are dreadful common sort of people." • -
" They ? " queried he.
mean my aunt and cousin. They
are in reduced circumstances,. and T. un
derstood that Annie had
. got so far down
that she takes in work at the shops. You
smile, and I suppose you think I ought
to know more about them, but I assure
you it was not my fault.
.Ever since they
would not consent to make it their home
here,- papa has forbidden me to have any
thing to do with them." .
"But why -did they not - stay ?"• asked
Robert. •
" 0, they had some foolish notions of
indevendeuee—said they would not live
on the bounty of those who had robbed
them, and many other impertinent things.
I wonder papa was so patient with them"!
I am sure be couldn't help it if it - was
their home once, you linow, if his brother
willed it to him." •
. ,
-"So, so—," said Robert Southey, And
his fine eyes roved, again to the portrait.
The noble face seemed lighted up with a
trusting smile, ass he gazed, and yet; it.
was but a child's face- 7 -a child of only
seven years.
" B.oii old is that cousin by this time?"
lie asked 'carelessly. ' '•
" 0, about my age. : 'I assure you she
is a very plain looking girl. . The painter
idealized that face." . .
_Eugenie •Bartlet *as both vain and
heartless, and had not even it enou;gli
to . conceal either defect: She had - fan
cied that she loved, more than, once, but
never till the poet face of Robert Southefy
met her vision,. had she in.reality kno

had nothing more than friendship—
scarcely that.
She however, fancied that he was pi
'Wrested in ber—nay, that he - was despe
rately enamored of her charms, and did
not dream that be sought for heart,;not
beauty, mind, nor. wealth.
"How long .did they occupy here?"
asked he. •
"0, till she Was seven--in fact that
picture. was - taken the year my Uncle died.
_was a great time about the Will,
and when she found it was really in Ifa

cousin was a • gawky. How could, it! be
otherwise ?—no boarding-school

Robert Southey glanced at the spiak;'
er with a look she would not have rehsh:-
hd, had she noticed it.
.Fertunately• l
eyes were cast down.
"" Do let us change the sribject,'...aid
Eugenie with a little start of impatience.
"What did you think of Guardaliue (last
night ?• - Wasn't he superb ? • I poSitive
ndored him—for the time, I Mean. •
Robert Southey seemed quite indiffer
cut whether She adored him for the ihne
or for all time, and replied to her arch ook
with-a quiet almost contemptuous smile.
" The ' Barber of Seville,' is I think
the most charming of operas," . continued
" - doift, you ?"
" On the - contrary, I dislike it the inost,"•
replied Robert Southey., • •
"o,is it possible ? Why,. everybody
goes iu raptures over it," replied Eugenie:
✓ "I don't -agree with everybody then,"
he said quietly. "I have but little sym
pathy with everybody."
She looked as it she did not know how
to take this declaration, and it annoyed
her to see his eyes again wandering to the
"I'll take it down and burn it," she
angrily ejaculated to herself. ° • -
After a few more common-places, Rob
ert Southey took his leave. :
He walked about Until it was quite twi
light, and then* remembered an errand in,
another part of the city, he retraced his
steps. Wds. it .his - guardian angel that
prompted kite? •-
He had nearly reached the place towards
which his stops were
. bent, when. he felt
a light, touch- on hiS arm. • 11 - e looked
down: There - was the face of the Portrait,
only more nature—much sweeter .in ex
pression. His heart beat as it had never
beat before. „
" May•l ask your protection ?"- said a
sweet voice—" some one has followed me
and spoken to me more than once, and
I—" the lip treinbled,. the eloquent eyes
swam in tears:
"'Certainly I will protect you." said
Robert, drawing her hank within his arm
—" and as to that- scoundrel, over there,
I know him—he should he chastised as
he deserveS. He will be before long if he
is not careful." * • ..
. The man met liisOye and skulked along
a back street. It was Morely,-the keeper
of the slop-shop..
"I should not have been Out- alone et
such an hour, but my , mother needed medi
cine," she said, as they ivaiked•-along.
The fair girl. trembled excessively.. •
They moved rapidly away, till they came
to the miserable building where lived-An
nie and her mother. Annie's cheek burn
ed as the - young man ascended the steps
and ripened the door for her. There Were,
loud and disagreeable sounds up 'stairs,
the entry was dark, and poor Annie stood
hesitating. - -
"They are very noisy and quarrelsome,
some of the families' in the rooms," she
said,. timidly.
"Stop a moment," ejaculated :Robert
Southey. And lie knocked, quickly at
one oflthe doors. "Lend me a light to
show this woman up stairs," he said to the
woman who appeared.
The: occupant or the room hurried to
light another candle. As she . gave - it to
him he.placed 'a : piece of money in her
hand 4 , hieb she was nothing loth to take
Handldesiring Annie to follow . him,. the
voun!rithan went
.as far as she. directed.
The &Kw of the great garret steed open,
and Mule's mother, with a strange glad
ness in her face ; looked out towards Annie,
as sheleame the stairs.- "
" Thank this `gentleman, mother, for.
his kindness in
.protecting me from-insult,"
said Atinie, gently. "But" left you sick!"
." I 'pm. well' now," exclaimed the ex
cited Widow,." and here is what has cu'red
me." 1 She held' a folded. paper: in her
hand, [ " The will that was lost I—the Will
that Lawyer Orandall and Other witnesses
knew he made, and is here in mi hand !
It_is dated a -year. later than the one:kis
brothr has ! Annie,
my child; thank
God Vkith me—thank God -
They had gone into the neat little "I.;ar:
ret-room—Annie, and Robert Southey fol
lowing. The latter made no apelogyhe
felt acquainted. with the circumstances,
and told theiu so. Annie's face-was mai
alitit was the picture . quickened into
beautiful life—the same innocence of.ex
pression, thd same spiritual loVeliness..
" Anme, You know liew'sacredly I have
kept this-little Bible since your father's
death," said Mrs. Bartlet; " only intiincs
of peculiar joy or affliction reading from
its saercd pageS,. because it was the : one
your. father used in -his. private devotion.
One. day when he was ill, but not yet sick

Annie went 'out, I got this Bible and read
it, lying upon. the bd. As I opened it,
I thought the cover felt strangely slippery,
and curiosity led me to push .it hither

paper underneath it. I unpasted.' the

,' Ohe glance at the noble facebefore, her,
decided the widow. She accepted the
offerl.with thanks.

this to-morrow," said the young Man.
" An uncle of mine- is on the point of \ris-'
