continued, looking toucbinly at me,
while her,eyes were suffused with tears,
but a wile's feelings cannot be told."
I was deeply alfected. 1 was yet a
young man and my heart was not then,
nor.ever has been Beared to misery. The
perilous situation of an old, and I had
no doubt of an innocent friend, was- e
nough to arouse all mv faculties in his
almost heart-broken wife, I felt as if 1
could bavo gone to the world's end, to
restore him to freedom aod her to hap
piness. 1 hastened to assure her that every
faculty I was possessed of should be
exerted in behalf of my friend and no',
doubting that the charge was exaggera
ted, comforted her by assurance of bis
speedy enlargement. "Indeed,"! con
tinued, seeing her feelings overpower
ed her, "Indeed, there is no room to
fear. The charge will, I trust, be easi
ly diaaprovbd. To-nipht will see your
husband free. Hut now lot us hasten
to his aid," and nailing a couch, I or
dered it lo drive it to the prison.
Never shall I forget the Bad; ol grate
ful smile, with which that angelic wo
man, thanked me for my promptness.
It seemed as if her wholo soul was wrap
ped up in her husband, as if every mo
ment of suspense or delay was to her
worse than death. I would have put
her down at her lodgings, hit she could
not be persuaded to desert htm to whun
her vows were plighted. Oh! the con
stancy of woman. They call this n
dark world, but cSn it be so while wo-
)n's love is here?
The meeting between mv old school
mate and myself was one of sd inter
est to both. As I pressed his hand a
crowd oi former memories poured like
a flood of sunset light across my soul.
For a moment we forgot all but the past.
Hut then come the terrible conscious
ness of tha present, of the ignominy of
Duval's situation, and the perils that
threatened to break his poor wife's
heart. One brief word, one hasty' as
surance of my friendship, and of my
confidence in his innocence, was all
the time permitted us. He said noth
ing, for the jailor entered to conduct
him before tba committing magistrate
but I could see that he turned his head
aside to brush away a tear, and here,

was that our correspondence ceased.
and I lost all knowledge of him. Here
too he fell sick; want began already to

it of its last few comforts. "Yet in . that

REAL KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST. s
Bishop Reynolds, very truly snd beautifully
remarks that' 'a believer, though he be ignorant
of other learning, yet by aknewledgt of Christ," '
will be a blessed man, .whereas all ths learning '
in the world without this will leave a man mis
erable. To know tha whole creation, and La
gnorant of the Creator to know all hit histo
ries and antiquitiet,and to be unacquainted with
our own hearts to be good logicians to other
purposes, and in the meantime to be cheated .
by Satan with paralogisms in the business of
our. salvation to be powerful orators with men." .
