Mr.' Waldeck knit his' br'oy, and seemed
to be. struggling with his thoughts. 'i While
he reflects we will make a few necessary ex

The firm, both members of which have
been introduced . to the reader, was one of
the most distinguished in the town. It had
the reputation of being the most wealthy
a circutnstance Which is explained by the
wealth of the seinor partner, who; was the
capitalist, while , the other was tho man of
talent and skill. an ' .-
- Waldeck, by superior address, had crowd
ded himself into the most opulent and aris
tocratic families, thus opening the way for a
more extensive business, and increasing the
reputation of his house. ' ''i ' ; ;
Among others, Waldeck had been intro
duced into the family of Colonel Powell, an
officer of the British crown. This gentle
man was of luxurious habits, free and liberal
with his incomes. As is oftJn the case with
such persons, his financial affairs were in an
embarrassed condition. As his circle of ac
quaintances increased, his expenses grew
proportionally greater, and he was obliged to
resort to the moncy-lendess for assistance
Waldeck, with a masterly penetration, dis
covered the financial difficulties of the Colo
nel, and volunteered to sm.ntir nil h,-.

Colonel Powell's demand for the loan of
five hundred pounds, ss he said; it was im
possible to meet. But Waldeck, for urgent
reasons, was . extremely anxious to furnish
the accommodation as much so as the Co
lonel was to receive it. ' 1

in the crowd of gay' flatterers that encircled
her, to bear away the palm of victory. He
had gazed and admired until his head and his
heart : both had been touched, and he could
not look with patience upon. the prospect of
defeat. '.Amelia liad always treated him with
respectful courtesy, and the little spark of
hope was rapidly kindled into a flame.
Waldeck feared to rest his suit upon his
own individual merits alone. Tha father.
embarrassments appeared to him the avenue
through which he could reach the coveted
prize; ' Since the opening of this business
relation, Waldeck had become a frequent
visitor at the dwellins of.Ma debtor. Thouoh

For some time longer the two' teitlrmen
conversed together. - Waldeck appeared ab-l
ractcd,'and oftep gave strange answers.;
He teemed to be engrossed with some par
pose, which demanded all the energies of
hi thought - and his : . will. After Colonel
Powell's departure; he "paced the room, oc
casionally muttering an exclamation of sat
isfaction, or,' again, as the picture-, it, his
miad grew; dark, vented an imprecation of
impatience. '!' ' v n ''l .n v'u-w--
After pacing the room for "a time? in this
manner.Jie gradually began to gryw calmer,
and when he had entirely tubdued his agi

house beside Ihe .'woman'. who ' officiated as

with the Intelligence that Robert wa in his
room. - Mr. Waldeck seemed satisfied, and
shortly after went into the shop.' ;.' '.:,' ;
Dewrie was still iii the ccllari'! The door
of the shop was locked. Waldeck ' walked
up and down the apartment several times.
and then approached the trao-door behind
the counter through which his nart'ner "had
descended.'. For ia-momonf he "paused as
if in doubt; his brow 'contracted; and his
black eye. .seemed to -expand before the
thought r that struggled for expressidn
Then, after casting a hasty arlance? toward

of a rebellious spirit in his country, vlsiofib
of robbery, pillage, and seige had-constant-ly
haunted him. His immense wealth he
feared would become the prey of the sof
diery. In the truest sense, he was a friend
less man; and his lonely 'and unsympathiz

The events connected ' with; the Stamp
Act, the. Boston Port Bill, and 'finally thd
quartering of the soldiers in the town; 'hd
destroyed all his hopes of a peariesble;' con
clusion to this difficulties. : His anxiety 'gave
him no respite from the gloomy foreboding
that clustered around bU existefl'ie?'' De
prived of his hatural rest, his cares, had made
deep inroads upon his constitution. Dav bv
day he grew thinner and palerhis step be
came more' feeble, his eye sunk deepor in
to his head, and Mser was-written on every
lineament of his countenance. "" ; 1 " i
Unless some respite from his care's should
be found, he foresaw that they would bring
mm to the grave. The fear of death was'
stronger, if possible, than the love 'of mon
ey. Uut where should he' look (br counsel
and sympathy!: His life had won him 'no
friends. - His nephew; tint yet a boy,' was a
partisan :in the strife; ' His' n'artn'e

Reluctantly, therefore,1 he ' disclosed' 'to

promised to afford ample protection to the
