"WE WILL CLING TO THE PILLARS OF THE TEMPLE OF OU ST PALL, WE WiLL PERISH AMIDST THE RUINS."

who cared nothing for the storm without
Miss Maywood, the belle of the season, and
young Grantley Harrison, who, now seated a
beside her, held one not unwilling hand in
his, and whispered tender words to listening t
" And I may tell your mother our love is
mutual?" said the young man in a low tone.
"Yes, Grantley." And the bright head
drooped, while from the downcast eyes there J
poured forth looks of lve and perfect happi- s
Norah Maywood, now in her eighteenth 1i
year, fulfilled all the promise of beauty her <
childhood gave. Tall, with a full, proud fig- h
ure, and a stately carriage, every movement i
was easy, graceful, and dignified. Her face I
was in the true type of her country's beauty. t
A fresh, clear complexion, handsome well- e
defined features, a beautiful mouth and teeth, I
large hazel eyes full of intelligence, and soft
dark brown hair, curling in large, full ring- l
lets, elastic and springing with her every -
movement. And with her Irish beauty, there n
were all the impulsive, warm-hearted, gener
ous feelings of her race. Loving her adopted e
mother with a fervor and passion many a true
mother might have coveted, she had vet given t
Grantley IIarrison the pure undivided love a r
young heart can give to its first love. Norah g
was very happy on that stormy night.
"Shall I tell him'?" said Mrs. Maywood, L;
softly, as she paced up and down in her own S
room with an open letter in her hand. " Shall
I tell him ? The Ilarrisons are proud, very u
proud, and I may destroy her happiness for a
life. She would grace a court, my queenly
Norah ; but I may bring misery upon her if a
it is concealed now, to be revealed hereafter."
And after a long communion, and a struggle v
i her own heart, Mrs. Maywood went down
to tell Grantley that Norah was t:.e child of 4
poor Irish parents, and not the daughter of
he New York merchakt, Godfrey Maywood. r
He had left the house, vowing unalterable
ove and constancy, and Norah had again I
ought her mother. Mrs. 'Maywood was lying y
ipon the sofa with a pale face, and trembling
iolently, suffering from an attack of pain b
:aused by an organic disease of the heart.
ny agitation was apt to produce these at- n
acks, and without any misgivings the young n
;irl administered the usual remedies. But 1h
hey did not have the expected efliet the n
ain increa-ed, a doctor was summntoned, aid I b
he next morning Nora wept over the corpse
f her she had alwa3 s called, and believed to
,, her mother. c)
The funeral was over, and Norah was stand
ng alone in her mother's room. In her hand in
vac a letter, found among M1rs. Maywood's bt
apers, direct, d to herself, which told her w

isfortunes never come singly. and anmother i
blow fell upon Norah. Mrs. Maywood had I

bread, andl leave her hente. She was ocC-u

early start to 14eldell. Shte had in lier own

HOME AND THE HOMELESS.
Iv the steerage room of the great ship
"Dragon," that was ploughing its way through
the waves of the ocean, between Ireland and
America, sat one sad group, Bridget Sullivan
and her three children, who, an hour before,
had seen the body of Larry, the husband and
father, lowered into the sea. The poor wo
man gathered her little ones close to her, sob
bing and moaning with true Irish vehemence;
she had a dreary prospect. Each moment
took her farther from the home she had left
for her husband's sake, and nearer a new
country, where she would not meet one fa
miliar face, or hear one voice she knew. Her
passage paid, she had but about four dollars
in money, and a small stock in clothing. Tru
ly, for a widow with three children, the pros
pect was dreary enough. Maggie, the eldest,
leaned sadly against her mother, crying bit
terly, while Iarry and Norah stood quietly
near, half sympathizing, half wondering at
their mother's grief. Larry had a cousin in
America, but where, he had not known; his
name was Sullivan, too, Mark Sullivan, but
that was all the guide the widow had, and to
search for Mark Sullivan through all America
was dreary work to undertake. So, despond
ing,. weary, and poor, Mrs. Sullivan landed in
New York. She did not linger there. They
landed in the morning, and before night she
was trudging out of the city. The noise con
fused her, and she had a prejudice against
city folks, and longed for the kindly sympathy
she hoped to meet on farms or in villages.
We cannot follow the four in their wander
ings; when we find them again, it is resting
at noon, on a cold, damp fall day in a neat,
pretty cottage some fifty miles from the city
of New York. Dinner is going on the table.
and the farmer, with Norah on his knee, is
coaxing her to talk, with an apple for a bribe,
while Larry looks wistfully on, a: d Mrs. Sul
livan, with Maggie asleep on her knee, sadly
looks forward to the afternoon's tramp. Pen
nyless, and unable to procure work, there.
seems no prospect for her but begging.
"So," said the farmer to the little one on
his knee, "your name is Norah. That was 1
my grandmother's name: Bessie," he con
tinned, speaking to his daughter, who with
her brother was playing with the farm dog,
" Bessie, help your mother spread the table, -
and we'll see if Norah likes soup better than
" I like apples," said Larry, eagerly.
"Do you, my man ?" said the farmer, toss
ing him one. -- YnaL ------ 9"
"Larry, sir; Larry Sullivan."
" Sure it was his father's name before hinm,"
"His father's dead, then ?"
"Yes, died comin' over. It was co:nin' to
Ameriky he was. sir, to better himself, and
he was hopin' a cousin he had here, that lad
lived forninst him in the ould country, and
was like a brother to him, would be tellin'
him about the work, sure."
" What was his cousin's name?"
" Mark Sullivan."
"Why, that's me! Larry, lil.e my own
brother. Arrah, that he was. And' lhe's dead."
And a hot tear rolled downr the sunbuorned
cheeks, as he bent over the widow and
the sleeping Maggie. " Take of!' your
closk, girl. It ain't lArry's woman that
shall ramble about the world while Mark Sul
livan has a roof to cover him."
Days passed, and still Biddy and her chil
dren were innmates of the farmi. anna,
Mark's wife, found the active, willing Irish
woman a great help in the house. Naggie
had already found out how to make herself
useful, and the inereased famuily were becom
ing firmly united in love. And having shown
how the ho:ne'ess wanderers found a home, I
must turn again to my heroine, Norah.
It was one warm, sunny day in early spring,
when Mrs. Msywool came t , the village of
IHazeldell to pass a few months. Mrs. May
wood was a y ug wi althy widhow, who in
two short years had beeni a bride and mother,
widowed an I chil1l:ess. 11cr h~usband and
child had died within a week of each other,
and u :nerved, weakened by- the.diouble shock.
she had left her New York homue to spend a
few quiet months in llazeldell and try to re
cruit her healhh and spirits. biddy Subivan's
story was told to Mrs. Maywood by herlad
lady, and being young and herself in trouble,
it had strongly interested] her. With qiuck,
impulkive gez.erosity. she lad sent for Biddy.
made her a present of snnme motney, and
asked to see the children. Maggie, delicate
and frail, especially interested her, and she
promised to see about puttinig her to school;
but the tottling Norah, with her brighat, black
eyes, and frank, winning face, hal si rung
right into the sorrowing widowi heart. Du
ring the ruonths she was at lI.Adell, she
rarely permitted a day to pass, without. send
ing for the child. Maggie she plaiced in a
school, atnd she found ani abundant supply or
sewing among her friends for ijidd. but
Norah had become 'ear to her almost as the
chil he had buried in its infancy. She was
going home, and sl.e nmale a proposition to
the mother. lbe wotil I aduopt .\orah, give
her every advantage of position anid etduca
tion, but the mother must entirely resign her.
Mrs. Mavwoodl could not endure th-e.idc a of
taling the child as her own, if a low, igno
rant Irish woman was to Le really its n.other.
After a long struggle, the unselfish wis.h for
the child's giood prevailed in the mother's
heart, and Mrs. Malywood formally adopte.

South Carolina. e
In an able article of the n/uf ern Pri'.4i/- ('
/,oiln liriewr entitled" A Xindiention of a
Seccssion and the South," by the Rev. Dr. g
Paler, of'New Orlea:;-, is the following clo- a
quent defence of South Carolina against the ft
charge, that the sece~sion of this State took
its rise in her "chronic hatred to the Nation- d
al Union :'
"W e deny that South Carolina ha:; ever
been actnated av so b:ie a sitie!it as ha
tied of the Union ;" especially a hatred that k
is " chronic." 11er statesmen al her people ti
did, indeed, despair of the clipu.lic: sooner n,
than others. With that penuiration into the 1
working of seeret and and po ential causes 0
which seems intuitihe, Mr. Calhotnn long -i:ice
announced the catastroiphe that has oee-arred,
with a precision that now looks like the in- t
spirati.mn of prophecy. But that she has ever ,t
been disloyal to the Coust itmi.n, is historical- w
ly untrue. During the Rev hlnionaIv sttr;- e

fields which dot her soil abundantly show. -
From that day to :lis, in all her country's
battles he: sons hate stood nenrest to th
flashinag of the guns, always prodigal of life.
