It is now many years since I first visited
Paris, but if I lived to bo a centenarian, 1
am certain I shall not f.>rcret thai first j uir
nev from London while I remember any
thing. 1 was then young and inexperi
enced, but sufficiently vain to think myse f
a paragon of widom. Like m<st London
ers, I thought that wonderful city the very
heart of the world, and all outside of it
mere sulutrlw and comparatively small
plaoee, among which, of course, Paris was
the most respectable. I had not been
overburdened with education, and my read
ing ha I l>een principally confined to Eng
lish history and English g'ry Ofcoiose
I was jtisl person who had vet a great
deal to learn hi-fore I cofiMknnw much.
Well, one fine morning, which happened
to be the twenty-first anniversary of my
inottal finding mvself the lordly
proprietor of a tliou-and jH.un L I eonelu !-
ed to c-'ehrate niv freedom bv running
over to Paris and astonishing the native"
with the distinguished presence of a highly
intelligent and enlightened traveler from
foreign parts. So, fitting myself out in a
stylo that would have made me the envy
!<>f a Pawnee chief—far more brilliant than
a rainbow aud with quite as many eoh-rs- —
I procured mv passports an I started for
Calais, as full of confidence as a little eher
up in his first pair of new boots. There
were a great many more persons going
j over than I Had extie-'fe-l to l.n' I
c ns led tnvself with the probability that
; very few of I hern were de-lined f # -r Pari

as well dressed as my wrrthy self.
In all the pompous iuqortince of a con
ceited ftol—lor s.n-b I n .t t*.i"■ i-st • v •.>'-
fes- I was at that time—-I was pacing the
4 >ieck ol the steamer, some two hours later,
'admiring th- pi nit>—oiio
ha .-l, as we glide-? "V,"ft'v -'-''.vn whit I
then regarded as t!;e in fj'itv Thames, \Vlien
I fe't a light lap on my shoulder, and heard
a ver\ I'lrHH-lUt M.'Ce Sftv:
u Par.l.n me, my lord ! b it nnv 1 venture
to ask if you are destine-1 for Paris?"
Now I was iu reality very far from l>cing
a hud, or the son of a lord, or even the KIII
of a lord—my father in truth l>eing only a
J rest Mailable tradesman; but there was >•.•!>■
thing so very agreeab'e in the title, that 1
| felt no special anxiety to disown it T turn

RiM held out liis h.aml, adding:

I pursued, feeling internally more fiaiti-red

over tnv person, "even were your mr-lslnp

; ted in their estimation. i
Long before we had crossed the chan
nel, the Hon. Mr. Beaufort and myself had
become very intimate. We walked to
gether, we played together, talked much, ,
aud com men led on everything. He had
traveled a great deal, and of course 1 was
in luck to fall in with him on this account,!
to say nothing of his being the son of a;
lord. He was agoing to show me Paris
and French life, and I must leave all to
him. He knew how to save me all trouble'
and bother from the |*liee officers at Ca
lais, and he would. He would lHk at my
passjiort, to see that it was in perfect order,
and also overhaul tnv trunk anil tell me
the exact amount of duty I sli ul< 1 have to
I pay This he did, and then oltserved:
"Oh, a'niatter of ten guineas will see
'you through at right, my lord! Yours is
a mere trifle —1 wish mine was as little
It will cost me a cool hundred: but I sup-j
| pose you left at home ail except aioluie
; necessaries, as I ought, to have done. By
the-wav, as we are Hearing Ca.ais now, you
, I mav just hand me the amount, and I will
[jarrange it without giving your lord-hip
any trouble whatever. \el slay?' he im
, mediately ftdde 1, with a wxCu expressi. n;
. j '•confound it what am 1 thinking a!oiit!
talking money alftirs to your lordship! A
goo 1 j<>ke, though, in its way—ha! ha! ha!;
, j—only you must uol tell it on me in the;
. I saloons of fashion, my lord! No, I'll tell 1
you what, niv lord! I understand these
1 things, an 1 i'l! arrange al., put your bag- ■
'gage with mine, an I we'll make it all right
, at the end of the journey."
1 began to think it was going to c<>st
ime something to keep up my title; but
then it was high life, might not ast iong,
iaud perhaps 1 never come ag in, and so 1
j resolved to see it through while my money
1 lasted
As we drew near Calais all was excite

''Unfortunately," 1 replied. "I have not

"IT w iiufor'uiiate! What is to be done ?

1 produced it.
"Stay a minute, ti l I speak to the cam
' tain!' lie said, "I think I can arrange it."
He hurried avvav % with the draft in his
hand. For the first time I felt a little
suspicious of some trick,and waited his re
i! turn with some anxiety. He came back,
however, in about ten minutes, and ak<*d
me fo- my pa sjmrf, saying he thought he
(could g*t tllrough without any troui<|e.
-As we hal not vet reach-0 the pier, I

So said a young school-girl next
to me iu the city cars. She was out of
humor; jierhaps she had ah impcatcct lesson ;
at school; |erliaps she was weary of sitting
in a close room so many hoiits; perh jts I

"Little nuisance!" Who was a little I
nuisance? It was a jxxtr litile boy, who
ha I first pai l his five jxmnie* to the con
ductoi, and had cmnuienced playing an
accord< >n, in the hopo of getting some s
money from tlie gent em-n and ladies in
the car. Some scowl-d, some |H>ute l an-l
some, like the voung la Iv I have iiientiMi
ed, loudly called him "a nuisance." Still
the hov j>!a\e-l on, though with a weary,
spiritless look in his voung face, as if to say
"I know it is poor music, wry jio-.r, to cars
vVhich are used to op-nt or c*niceH singing;
but have pity on a jx>>r b->y, who would
earn a few honest pence for liis Ureal-,who
Will not steal, and who dislikes to lK*g." It
was of n > use-. The gentlemen were lulsy

Still the boy payed on, with the old

fixed upon those iinsvmnathiziiig ftces:
