1 heard this anecdote from a gentleman
Ion: resilient in l'hiladelphia. Two Qua
kers in that place applied to their society,
as they do not to law, to decide in the
following difficulty : A is uneasy about a
ship that oulit to have arrived, meets J,
an insurer, and states his with to have
the vessel insured. The mutter is agreed
upon. A returns home, and receives a
letter informing him of the loss of his
ship. What shall he do? lie is afraid
that the policy is not filled up, and should
hear of the matter soon, it is all over
with him ; he therefore writes to 11 thus :
'T'rk'nd 11, if thee hasn't filled up the
policv, thee needn't, for 1'rr htanl of the
ship.'' "Oh, oh!" thinks i to himself,
cunning fellow; he wants to do me out of
the premium." he writes to A
44 Friend A, thee he' est too late by half an:
hour, the policy is filled." A rubs his
hands with delight, yet II refuses to pay.

From tb Atlantic Monthly.
44 A wind came up out of the sea,
And said, 4 0 mists, make room for me !
It hailed the ships, and cried, 'Sail on,
Ye mariners I the night is gone !'
And hurried landward far away,
Crying, 4 Awake ! it is the day !'
It said unto the forest, 4 Shout!
Hang all your leafy banners out '.'
It touched the wood-bird's folded wing,
And said, 4 O bird, awake and sing !'
And o'er the farms, O chanticleer,

I t whispered to the fields of corn,
4 Bow down, and hail the coming mom !'
It shouted through the bclfry-towcr,

It crossed the church-yard with a sigh,
And said, 4 Not yet! in quiet lie !' "
Long, long ago, before jou, reader, or I
was born, there dwelt on a splendid estate
in England, Lord Granville and his lady,
and flistcr Henrietta. He was a tall dark
man, with a firm will, fixed notions rf
justice and crime, aud an unbending ob
stinacy; she was a fair delicate blond,
shrinking at a harsh look, gentle to a
fault, and ready to overlook, any misde
meanors, if her forgiveness was claimed
by penitence; they had one child, a love
ly little girl, just one year old at the time
our story opens, a fair baby, with dark
brown hair, large hazel eyes, delicate fea
tures, and a plump, healthy form.
"Lucy," said Henrietta (iranville to
her sister-in-law one morning, 44 1 am go
ing to have my fortune told."
44 Nonsense. Ketta . where:
44 There is a gypy encampment "about"
half a mile from here, and one of t'he wo
men, Jessie Hanvers, she calls herself, is
famous for telling fortunes."
44 The wife of Huon Danvers, who
brings fruit sometimes to sell here?"
44 The same ; a tall, graceful gypsy,
with thc deepest blackest eyes I ever saw.
A strange weird woman she is, by all ac
counts ; talks to herself, and prophecies
of days to come."
44 Iletta, do not go," said Lady iran
ville, imploringly. 44 1 know this Jessie,
and I know not why I fear her. When
she fixes those black eyes on ine, I feel
my flesh creep and my heart stand still."
44 Nonsense, Lucy; you arc nervous.
She is tpuccn, this woman, of these peo
ple, and I have a taste for royalty. Conic,
I am going, and you must go to."
44 My fortune is already m;fde, Iletta.
These people never get any further than
44 Rut you will come with me, Lucy ?
I long for a walk this pleasant morning,
and you must join me."
Iidy (Iranville allowed herself to be
pursuaded, and the two girls, for Ladv
Lucy was but eighteen, and Lady Henri
etta yet younger, 6tartcd for the gypsy
encampment. They found Jessie lan
vers seated in front of a rude tct, play
ing with a pack of cards, and muttering
to herself as she threw one after another
from her hand to thc ground. As the
visitors drew near, she let her hands fall
in her lap, and raised their eyes to their
faces. After gazing for a moment, she
said half scornfully
44 What seek you here?"
Henrietta then upoke: 44 Wc have
heard of your skill at fortune-telling and
have come to test it."
Jessie rose. She was a tall, handsome
woman, about twenty years of age. Her
features were regular, her eyes were large
and very brilliant, and her skin, though
dark, beautifully clear. Her long black
hair fell in masses to her waist, and form
ed a beautiful contrast to the whito shawl
pinned across her shoulders. Sho wore a
red hood over her head, and a many-colored
pkirt, short enough to leave her deli
cate feet and ankles fully revealed. The
hand which clasped Henrietta's was pmall
and delicately formed as thc lady'p own.
She looked long and earnestly at thc
palm, and then paid
44 There is nothing wonderful there.
You will marry, and die."
44 Thank you," said Ketta, sarcastic
ally; 44 you arc truly well skilled in your
calling: perhaps Lucy will die too, some
Jessie fixed her large black oyrcs on
Iady Lucy's face, and then said, in a low

fiercely, 44 do you fear mc? Your fate is

had thrown her into, and it was weeks
before she could hear J chic's name with
out a shudder.
In thc spacious library of his country
house sat Lord (iranville, while opposite
him stood Huon Ihtnvers.
44 You wished to speak with me," said
his lordship, coldly. 44 What have you to
Huon stood a moment irresolute, and
then said, 44 Mercy !"
44 Mercy ! 'Tis an old cry," said Lord
(iranville. 44 Not one poacher comes be
fore me but has it on his totijrue. I sav
to you, as I say to all : There is justice for
all criminals; I show merry to none."
There was a bitter pride struggling in
Htion's heart, but, quelling it, he said
44 1 do not fear thc punishment. I will
never be transported ; I can die. 'Tis
for my wife I ask my life, humble to beg
it. It will kill Ler if I go from her."
44 Why did you commit tho crime ?"
4 I was earned away by excitement. I
was wrong to throw myself into any dan
ger, with Jessie to care for; but it was
only one little hare; the punishment is
not proportioned to the offence, (live me
my liberty, and I will repay your loss a

this lawless way, but 1 will crush your
tribe's depredatiens in the bud. If I h t

lfr rose and ranir the bell.

Huon was removed to thc county jail,
but the next morning ho was found life

empty bottle labelled 44 poison' laying
beside him, explained the cause of his

as she left the room, said one word
A year passed away, and there was no
change in the camp or the large house,
save that Lord Granville's daughter, the
little KUa, was runniug about now, and
beginning to talk. One morning there
was an unusual excitement in the gyp
sies camp; they were breaking up to
move their quarters elsewhere. Iluon's
death had made them discontented, and
Jessie's filling her husband's place made
them murmur against woman's rule. Jcs
sio at length announced her determination
to leave them, ami they agreed to sepa
rate for a time. Jessie took leave of all
her old associates and left them, or rather
they left her, for long after they were
gone, the lingered around Lord Gran
One morning there was a strange scene
of grief acted in the great house. Klla,
the pet child of all, was missing; had
been lost all night. Lady Lucy was sick
with grief, Lord Granville ran hither and
thither giving directions, and thc ser
vants crowded together in tho hall were
eagerly discussing thc routes purfucd the
ninht before, and those to be taken that
Meanwhile, pressing eagerly forwards
and holding a sleeping child in )ler arms,
Jessie Danvcrs pursued her way toward,
London. Iays, weeks, months passed on,
and still there was sorrow in Lord Gran
ville's house. The lost ono could not be
found. Lady Lucy lay veiy ill of brain
fever, brought on by grief and anxiety,
and poor Ketta, bending over her, thought
often cm the gypsy's prophecy. Thc fe
ver increased in violence, and Lord Gran
ville, holding his wife's corpse in his
arms, felt that he was indeed widowed
Klcvcn years had passed since the
events occurcd spoken of in tho last chap
ter. Ketta Granville was married to a
lr. Melville, aud with her husband and
only child, (trace, who was about nine
ycars old, was staying with her brother
on his country estate. Lord Granville,
altered in appearance, had still the same
unbending finuntsj in thc administering
of justice, and the same unpitying inflcxi-1
bility in refusing mercy to criminals.

Away flew Grace, and did not return
until she came to announce that thc loui
expected carriage was at the door, nnd iu
a few moments the party, oiidsting of
Lord (iranville, Ketta- and (irace, were on
the London road.
Another scene was securing in London
at the same time, in a small house in
a narrow court. The little parlor of the
house occupied by two persons a woman
and a little girl. The woman was n tall
splendid-looking brunette, of rare beauty,
dressed in the costume of n fisherman's
. wife. A handkerchief of brilliant colors
was tied locscly over her head, making
her black hair look yet darker by con
trast with its gaudy hues. Her dress,
though of coarse materials, was very rich
in color, and suited well her beaut', tho'
her haughty air anil queenly gait were
not in harmony with the mean garments.
She was occupied in dressing a beautiful
little girl who stood before her, patiently
allowing her to deck her graceful form in
thc exquisite white robes which lay beside
44 Mamma, chcrc mamma," said the
little one, laying her head caressingly on
tliO dark bcrtuty' lap, 44 you urv sick.

they never do unless you are tick or

44 What then ! Why wc will return to
Paris, where shall I receive this ;" and
she intimated applause with her tiny
hands; but I shall not fail; I mean to
dance my very best. See." And with
a quick, graceful movement phc began to
dance. Wo leave her here, to follow,
Lord Granville to the theatre.
Thc farco and overture, are over and
the curtain rises for thc ballet of the
41 Ocean Nymph." The first scene repre
sents a fisherman seated by the ocean
mending his nets. Suddenly a large shell
appears floating on thc waters; and stand
ing in a graceful attitude in this shell
is Zara, the star of thc evening. I wish
here to describe her :
La Petite Zara is only thirteen years of 1
age, and her slight but beautifully mould
ed form is: the perfection of childish sym
metry. Her glossy chestnut hair falls in na
tural curls below her waist, and in its rings
are fastened small seed pearls, which look
like drops of water. Her features are del
icate beauty; her exquisite complexion
needs no artificial coloring; ami her tiny
feet are not injured by dancing. Her
dress is of white illusion, that looks like
a soft sea foam thrown gracefully around
her, leaving her beautiful arms aud neck
exposed, and pearls here and there ap
pear among tho soft lace folds. Thc pu
rity of her dress is unbroken by any or-j
naincnt. Slowly, and gracefully, thc shell
glides over the water, while thunders ot
applause greet tho lovely vision, until,
springing lightly upon the stage thej
44 Ocean Nymph," with a low courtesy,
acknowledges her graceful reception.
This over, she executes a pa and called
on thc plav bills thc 44 fascination dance;"
and truly it is so. Shecommeneos with a
slow, irresolute step, dancing round thc
bewildered fisherman, and ever and anon
inviting him to join her. Faster and
faster the music sounds, and wilder grow
the intricats mazes of thc dance, until the
fishcrmau starting up, tries to entrap the
lovely vision, but, with merrv archness,
she resist his attempt, gliding under
his arms, or springing lightly over the
impediments ho throws in her way to detain
At lenght he throws his uct over her
and then followed the dance ol thc even
ing, famous on account of thc difhculty
of Zara's dancing with a net over her
shoulder and arms. While this dance
is still in progress, the mother of thc
fisherman enters and tries to persuade
him that tho vision he sees is evil

and she steals a little baby away from i;a
