Mrs. Goldie endeavored to collect further
particulars of Helen Walker, particularly
her journey to London, but this she found:
Impossible, as the natural dignity of her
character, and a bight sense of family respect
ability, had made her so indissolubly con
nect her sister's disgrace With her own exer
tions; that none of her neighbors dame even
question her upon the subject. One old
woman, a distant relation of Helen's and
who was living in 1,829, says she worked
in the harvest with lier,-but she never ven
tured to ask her about her sister's trial, or.
her journey to London. " Helen," she
said, " was n lofty` body, and, used a high
'style o' language." The same old woman
says, "that every year Helen received a
Cheese from her sister, - who lived at White
haven, and that she always sent a liberal
portion to herself or her father's family."
The old person here spoken of must have
been a mere Child to our heroine, who' died
in 1791, al the age,of 81...0r 82 and this
difference of ago may account. for any re
serve in speaking on such a subject, making.
it appear natural and proper; and not the
result of any "loftiness" of character. •
All recollections of her are connected with
constant and (levant reading (tithe Bible.—
A stnallstand, with a large open Bible, in
variably oceupied one corner of her room ;
and she was constantly observed stealing a
ghince, reading a text or chapter, ns her av
ocations pe i rmitted'her, time, and it was her
habit when it thundered, to take her work
and her Bible to the front of the cottage, al;
lodging that the Almighty could smite in the

The metnorial which Mrs. Goldte wished
to be raised over her grave has since been
erected (dike expense of Sir Walter Scott.
The inscription is as follows :
This stotie was erected
by the author of Waverly

who died in the,vear of Gad NIDCC XICI.
This hunible individual
practised in real life
with which fiction has invested
the imaginary character of • '
refusing the slightest departure
even to save the life of her sister,
she nevertheless showed her
kindness and fortitude
in rescuing her
from the severity of the law
at the expense ,of personal exertions
which the time rendered as difficult .
as the motive was laudable.
Respect the grove of poverty,
when combined with the Jove of truth
and dear affection.
Jeanie Deans is iecompensed by her bi
ographer for the . titials through which he
leads her, with a o'll measure of earthly
comfort ; for few nbielists dare venture to
make - Virtue itsowr reward ;, yet the follow
ing reflection .shoWF. him to have felt how lit
tle the ordinary coOrse of Providence is in
accordance with man's natural wishes, and
his expectations of a splendid tempiwal re
ward of goodness " That a character so
distinguished forler, undaunted love of vir
tue lived and died in poverty, if not want,
serves only to show us how insignificant in
the sight of heaven.are our principal objects
of ambition upon earth."
CRUISE AFTER A PIRATE.
