MR. SPONGE.
BY P. PODHAMMER.
I was greatly impressed hf his appear
ance. There was "ton" in every etitoh of
of his elogantiy got up apparel and each
individual hair of his whiskers. , . ,
. ' That's my friend fc'ponge," my com
panion SnobbBley proudly remarked.
"Grand fellow. Such style 1 Very dis
tinguished family, the Sponges." i , ... ,
"What is his business?! innocently inquired.-.
" -,v.V
Snobbslcy gave me a look of contempt.
"He has no business. ' Is a gentleman,
a man of genius, author, artist and all
that but merely as au amateur, yon
know."' ;'-' ' 1 " :iJ.t' ... - , i r
"Then be is ti man of means," " i --
"Well, it's natural to suppose that a
man who lives.' in tip top style, without
working, is a man or means, t ,
This rnmark. havinz the. foroe of an
nxiiiin. satiniicd me. '' 1 " '
While1 I submit to no" imputation of
snobbery or' toadyism, 1 must aoknowi'
o.l.-B that T have alwavB felt a natural ad'
mirctflrtn far mflfl of "ton." a svmnathctio
attraition toward men ' o genius, and an
honest reeosct for men ot means.
1 was consequently seized with a strong
desire' to add to my list of distinguished
acauaintance a man who united these
thrflfl nil alitiea. as did Mr. Snonee.
This . desire Snobbsley, with his usual
patronising amiability, at. once gratifiod.
Crossing over, to where Mr. Sponge was
standing,.' he introduced me. I was re
ceived with ' that fasoinating . cordiality
which one true gentleman instinctively
feels and manifests toward another. '-'
I felt a- continuous thrill of pride as I
walked up Broadway on his right,;;. ; '
1 was charmed with his conversation,
Never bad I heard such noble sentiments,
so elegantly and yet loroiDly expresi
Sunn horror of meanness! Buon con-
nf the meroenarv nrincinles
that actuate society in these degenerate
days! Such longing for a friendship that
should not be nourished by self-interest
and blightod , by ingratitude! As ne
warmed with his subjeot his eloquence
took an oratorial rather than conversa
tional form. It could never be repeated
muoh less printed.
1 felt that we were kindred spirits. Our
new-born sympathy developed over a bot
tle of champagne that I ordered at Mail
lard's into a full-grown and delightful
friendship.
I ventured to invite him to dinner. To
my delight, and SnobbBley's evident envy,
he accepted my invitation. His distin
guished style and manner, together with
his winning frankness of egression and
nobility of sentiment, commanded uni
versal admiration at the table of my fash
ionable boarding houao. I was proud of
my friend.
'When he took his leave he borrowed
two valuablo books whose merits we had
been disonssing, and, there being a slight
throatning of rain, he accepted the loan
of my umbrella. - I was glad that it was
a new and handsome one. Our intimacy
continued. He often accepted my invi
tations to dinuer, and usually took away
with him a book from my choice library.
It is true he nevor returned them, but
how could such a man be expected to
think of such trivial matters.
I had frequent oooasions to thank my
etara for having allotted me such a friend.
I will mention a few of them:
I had formerly prided myself upon my
taste in. dress, but now felt that my
apparel was sadly inferior to lys in Btyle
and fitness. He entored into an elaborate
discussion of the great art of dress one
day as we were walking down Broadway,
unfolding to me (as indeed he did on every
topic he touched) striking and compre
hensive truths of which Ilad previously
had no conception. He then kindly con
sented to accompany me to my tailors, to
assist me in the selections of materials.
Having done so, he graciously yielded to
tho solicitations of that admiring artist,
and entered his own name on his books
opposite I magnifioent order. I need
only add that to that discussion and assist
ance I owed tho elegance of costume that
subsequently elicited so many compli
ments from my friends and bo admiring
glances from strangers. ' ; ,
One evening he invited mo to aocom
nanv him to the theatre the Hponge
family have free entree at all places of
amusement at introuuecu me pemnu
the scenes a world of mysterious inter
est to me, but one in which, as everywhere
eln, he was on a footing of intimacy.

forgot that delightful evening. . Charmin
fcllowH they repeated old stories an
jokes so admirably that I quite forgot
having heard them before. , Ineir talking,
laughing, eating and drinking wore so
much like their acting, that I fancied we
were on the stage and looked to see the
curtain, rue. ' And with what ingeneous
liomsi'o did ther reward their entertainer!
and what condescending courtesy did they

Mr. Hponge dispensed his hospitalities

When the bill was presented, he whis-

. - with that fascinating divine, he persuaded
me to subscribe for a fifty dollar sitting

But I approhthe tragTbterm00
oi mis memorauie itihuuiuii.-"
' It had been my blissful fortune, a Jew
months before to become engaged to Miss
Arabella Weeks, of Madison Square, the
loveliest of her sex, the least oi her
nlri-nMinna. in mv estimation. beinf "er
fortune of fifty thousand dollars. '
It was neoeBsary to complete my satis
faction that Mr. Sponge should see and
approve my choioe. I accordingly sought
aud easily obtained permission to intro
duce to her the dear iriond of whose vir
tues and accomplishments I had already
often spoken to her. :;
I saw with delisht that he approved
her. i lie conveyed to her that assuranoo
by those graceful and flattering expres
sions of whioh he was master. He sighed
as he assured her that he envied my nap-
pier lot. He sang duets with her a nne
voice being one of his many accomplish
ments, and one of whioh I was deplora
bly destitute. Ho conversed with so much
fluenby and eloquence that in the whole
course of the evening I scarcely found op
portunity to open my lips half a dozen
times.' ;.,
I saw with gratification that he pro
duced a most favorable impression on Ar
abella, and felt no little pleasure at hav
ing shown her that I was the friend of
Buoh a man.
I confesB to a momentary pang of jeal
ousy at the "empressment ' of her man
ner to him as we took our leave and hor
comparative indifference to mo. I men
tioned this to him as we walked away.
"Ah! my dear fellow," he replied, turn
ing his fine eyes upward, "the man who
would even in thought tamper with the
alfeotions that are the plighted property
of his friond, would outrage not only the
sanctitios of confidence but all the finer
feelings of humanity."
I grasped his hand in full re-assurance.
I will not dwell on the successive de
grees of coldness and estrangement whioh
Arrbella after that evening manifested
toward me. In my distress and bewilder
ment at these unaccountable phenomona
and the failure of mv own eloquence to
remove them, I one day sought the advice
and intercession of Mr. Sponge. These
were promptly given, but with no satis
factory result
On the contrary, Arabella informed me
the very next day, with many regrets,
but in a tone of unalterable determina
tion, that she had become convinced we
were not "eongenial," and wished our
premature engagement to be annulled.
, A terrible suspicion flashed acrdss my
mind. ' '
"Bella." I cried, "you love anothor." .
, "Yes, she replied proudly, "I do love
another. Within a few days I shall be
come the wifo of your friend Mr. Sponge.
You certainly can not judge me harshly
for this choice, after having so often your
self praised to me his noble and attract
ive qualities. .
I made no reply, but rushed away in
search of my false friend.
It was a singular oiroumatanoe tuat
ong and intimately as , I had known Mr.
Sponge, he had never invited me to his
plaoe of abode, nor even informed mo
where it was. It was equally a mystery
to his other acquaintances.
I had, however, by accident discovered
it, having, in course of a solitary walk, in
.... - .,.
the dusk of tae previous evening, eeon;a
figure that took to be ms, steaithiiyjen
tering a small boarding house in a retired
looality.- .
... To that house I now hastened, and
bribed the unwilling servant girl to show
me to bis room. -
The door stood open and I entered,
He was not ther. ; , , " ; ; ,
It was a pleasantly furnished room, but
my attention was particularly attracted to
his large and handsome library. I rooog
nized there fome familiar objects, which
proved to be the books 1 had loaned faun.
On examining the other books of his val
uable collection, 1 found written on the
fly-leaves a great variety of names but
never his own. ' ' f.'' v-s i
Amonc a laree assortment of umbrellas
in the eomer, 1 found the one i naa tor
merly loaned him. " ;'v "
Arranged in tempting profusion about
the room were an extensive collection of
gems of art and "bijouterie," canes, meer
schaums, &o.t such as might, in time, be
accumulated by a man of taste who bor
rows industriously, ,., . " : 1
On the lid of a partly open chest was
the word Bank. In the chest I saw a
large collection of . feminine daguerreo
types, some of whioh I -recognized as
likenesses of his admiring lady acquain
tances. Bat what was the significance of
the word Bank? Bid it symbolize tho af-
feo'ions and purses of those same fair
ones? ; Abusbel or more of dainty .little
notes, stored in the ohest, might perhaps1
have solved the riddle.
Having hastily made these'observations
i wits uuuuii reiiiiiug muuu iujt. uijuiigo a
landlndv mads her aDDcaranee. Could I
tell her something about Mr. Sponge? Ho
owed for several ' months' board. Ho
seemed suoh a noble and well-connected
eontlomon. she said: she had believed his
promises, but "promises," she added phi
losophically, "aim t make the pot uue. .
With my senso of injury aggravated 1iy
these discoveries, 1 hastened away to Ar-
I abella's rcBidenoe. ' At I neaxeditlsaw
Mr, Spo'ogft approaching from the opposite
direouon. - WO met in front f the door.
I saw Ara bona looking out of the window.

He drew himself up with quiet dignity,
remarked that Sny expressions might be
considered infltfltaag, and soientiQealiy
knooked me dowft. . i ,( . , ':)-
In anegony oi rage and morunoation
I mi Ihr a friend, and forthwith, des-
pttoed to Mr. Sponge a peremptory de
mand for satisfactioa n- v
I received In reply the following notey
. "It will afford me extreme pleasure
to acoede to the wishes of so. highly
esteemed a friend. j ,:, --t ; .

dear boy, fcy loaning me for that Ocoasion

other," -. .s-tiv-i
' Mr. Sponge was punctual ' He greeted
me with his aocustomed cordiality, and
volunteered me some iniormauon as to the
best mode of holding my weapon. ,. He
then took -his place and, at the word,
gracefully raise! the pistol I had loaned
him, and put a bullet through my right
shoulder. W ' ' . ' . '.' "
That very day Mr. Sponge and Arabolla
were married. ,, . . . ,,
After their wedding tour, thoy set up
a.n elegant estaDiisnment near? riicn
Avenue. Their carraige attracts admiring
glances on Broadway, and thoir enter
tainments are the delight of a fashionable
set. ' -v ,... ..' :
TIi.eir door was at first beaieged by a
host o.f Mr. Sponge's creditors, comprising
nearly every fashionable tailor, boot-
maser,a:c., in town, a numoor ot oonnaing
landladit s, and a mob of gentleman who,
like myself, had been honored . with his
friendship, ana retained as souvenirs nis
O. ITS. i :,'-:.
He was able serenely to defy this
malicious persecution and the threatened
terrors of the law, every appurtenanoe of
the i Sponge establishment being . the
inalionable property of its feminine head.
Some envious people wonder how the
Sioonees make suoh a figure on a capital
ov only fifty thousand. The careful reader
of .the foregoing will not be at a loss for a
oonjocture. . -i , ,.
As for myself, I am a wreck. : Snobbs
lcy no longer reaognizes me on Broadway.
Bwt my woes will not have boon quite in
vain if this report of them shall impress
on some inexperienced reader tho lesson.
