Quaker, to himself, "but how much worse it
is to abide by rash words afteV 'there has been

Crawford was troubled by what the Qua
ker said,, but more troubled by what he saw
a few minutes afterwards, as he walked along

was but a shadow of her former self.
Mr. Crawford had been very fshy of the
old Quaker, who had spoken so plainly; but
his words had-made some impression on him,

there was no change in his conduct towards

reply, to the 'one who informed him of the
fact. This was all that could be seen,

Nevertheless, he stood coldly aloof, month1

bad a more thaa usually attractive -'face, and
an earnest look out of his mild eyet, that
made every one who saw bim his friends.

was particularly winning. 'i-' ! ;

The boy did not reply, for be had fixed his
eyea upon a picture that hung over the man

of Mr.' .Crawford followed those of the child,

"What else besides Henry ?" he repeat-
.Henry Logan,", replied the child, look
ing for a moment into the face of Mr. Craw
ford, and then turning to gaze at the picture
on the wall. Every nerve quivered in (he
frame of that man of iron will. The dart
ing of a bolt from a aunnysky, eould not
have surprised hiin more. He aaw in the
face of the child, the moment he looked at
him, Vorae'thTnfg strangely familiar and attractive.-.
What it was, be did not at this in
stant comprehend. But it was no longer a
mysteryi '; ''"
'Do you kqow who j em !" he asked in
a subdued voice, after Be had recovered, at
some extent, his feelings, i .
The child looked again into' his face, but
longer and more earnestly. Then, without
answering, he turned atid Wked at the por
trait on the wall. .
"Do you know who I am, dear !" repeat
ed Mr. Crawford. ; ' , ' "
"No, sir," replied the child; and then
again turned to gaze upon the picture.
" Who is that V and Mr. Crawford pointed
to the object that so fixed tho little boy's at
"My mother J" and as be said these words
be laid his head down upon the bosom of his
unknown relative, and shrunk close to him
as if half afraid because of. the mystery that
in his inlantilenurju, hung around the picture
on the Wilt.) c :. , ... .. . ..--,(!! -
Moved by an impulse that he could not re
strain, Mr. Crawford drew his arms around
the child, and hugged hint to his bosom.
Pride gave way; the iron will was bent; the
sternly uttered vow was forgotten.- There
is power for good In the presence of the lit-
tie fchild.' Its sphere jof innocence subdues
and renders, impotent the ,-evjl spirits that
rule in the .hearts of, selfish men. It was
so in this case. Mr. Crawford might have
withstood the moving appeul of even his
daughter's presence', changed by grief, labor,
and suffering, as she was. ,, But bis anger,
upon which he had suffered the sun to go
down, fled before her artless, confiding, inno
cent child.,, He thought not of Fanny as
the wilful; woman . acting from the dictates
of her own passion or feeling; but as a little
child, lying on his bosom as a little child
singing and dancing aroiind him as' a little
child, with to him the face of a chertib; and
the sainted image of that innocent one by
her. aide:''' ""'' i: "

the tears fell from his eyes, and lay warm
and glistening upon her face :
: "As of old," he murmured, laying his
cheeks down upon that of his child, and
and clasped her more tightly in bis arms.
And while he held her thus in bis arms, the
long pent up waters of affection were 'gush
ing over his soul, and obliterating the world

not the bright light of other times; for now

And there was music again; not so joyous
