j- iWhen, by the just w.raih of offended hea
ven, our first parenn were .driven fronr the
beautiful garden, of Eden. th.ey wandered In
gujih anfl sharne from; the v;of..JTt$ir, 'fa
hind, afraid to look her companion in the
facri.'and Adam 'Can on her it glance' of
mingiea lenaorness ana reproacn irom time
to lime. I hey walked wearily along, and
though the air. was sweet and balmy, the
flowering fair, the grass as green, 'and the
birds tunc merrily as the naradlse from
which they had just boon 'expelled! the
sense of their transgreasions took from them
all heart to enjoy the beauties of nature.-J
They remembered their disobedience and
wepti '" ' 1 -:
Thus sprinklings the grass and flowers
with their tears, i hey came tit length' "tb!,a
linle murmuring stream that danced along
merrily among tjie moss gfdwn rocks shaded
bya whispering grove, among wlio8e branch'-'
es the birds were rearing their little clamor
ous brood, whose chirpings were . ever and
anon heard over their heads.- 1 ' ;1 ''''
"1 am tired," said Eve, and they sat dowti
by the side of a stream. '.",', ',' .'
For the first time since they yielded to the
temptation of the serpent, they looked each
other in the face and were struck with the
change thoy observed. The cheek of Eve
hd lost its bloom, and the careless, 8,iright-
vivacity.that always . accompanies :the
consciousness of innocence; had glveft place
to sunken eyes, dishevelled hair.nd a brow
coniracted with the furrows of a, guilty con-"
science. ... . ... , . ,,.t., ..
"Thou an sadly changed, mv -love," said
Adam, and resentment at the curse she had
brought upon hi head gave' place to pity!?
Tt . , ... - 1 ... . !
ne iook ner in nts arms, kissed, her cheek.
nd laid her in his bosom. . . . m , .; i
Eve looked up id his face, and through the
tangled locks that hung" over her eyes, and
the tears that streamed from tlism, observed
the changes a few hours of guilt and misery
had planted on his open, manly brow. :
"Wilt thou ever forgive me, AdamT" said
he; In a voice tremulous wlih- emotion.
"I have lost thee' a poradise," . , '
"Hut thou nasi iven me anoiher. in thy
dear arms,'' cried Adam, while; ho pressed
her closer to his bosom. ;
At that moment, a bird which had been
in search of food for its young, after flutter
ing a little while over their heads, to look at
the intruders, dropped into its nest, and they
heard the gay humming of the little callow
brood, rejoicing in the bounty of their, pa
rent. ... , .
"Shall we ever enjoy the delights of pro
viding for a little brood like this?'-' said Eve,
looking up In his face tenderly. '' ' ' '
Why should we not, my love!" he re
. "Then even then we shall yot be hap
py! Love shall make us amends for the
loss of paradise,' and the anger of the angel
of the naming sword, and tho virtues of
our children shall atone for the parent.
We shall yet be happj; look not so pale
and sad, my beloved! See how bright the
great light shines yonder In tho blue world!
hark how the young birds twitter, and the
old ones sing to them! So will it be with
us. I will watch over our little ones, and
chase away the flies, and sing them to aleep,
while ihou shah go and bring them food.
Cheer up, and once more bless."
Adam was for a moment beguiled ef hie
sorrows,, and the recoljection of his guilt,
was lost in the delights of love. But . as
they sat deceiving themselves with the
hope that worldly pleasures can supply the
absence of innocence, or overpower, save
for single moment, the stingings of con-.
scious guilt, on a sudden, the serpent that
bad beguiled ' Eve, crawled ' quietly from
some unseen haunt where he had hid him
self and listened His. scales .of a thou-'
sand changeable lustres, glowed and glitter
ed as he wound himself gracefully: along,
and ; there was . a fascination in his eye
riveted whoever looked upbn it. .Eve
shrunk .from his approach; she could not
help: admiring the beautiful seducer. But
Adam turned from him and bade him begone,
i"Why shall 1 begone?',' he answered in
a tone of ineffable sweetness, r, "What have
I dune to thee, that . thou shouldsi drive me
ayl" . . 'i i:. .
' tThouhast lost us our happy home, and
called down . upon our heads tho anger of
heaven," aaid: Adam, and he was about to
stamp, on the serpent with hit foot, but Eve
interpose exclaiming, , :, ;- , i,,'
, "Forbear,- my teloved I Didst thou net
jusl now say', that for tjie paradise thou hast
lost, thy poor handmaid had given to' theo
another quite as fair ' Bemembot.'iooi the
cheerful birds; and their tender ybuhgi ' We

in the white surplice abut his book; a fire
brand was applied to the pile of wood, and
the poor wretch was slowly consumed! while
his soul triumphed even in the agonies of
death, as he sang" hallelujahs to the living
God. The man in the white surplice 'then
gave out a hymn, and the soldiers beat 'the
poor woman and children away for Inter
rupting the music with their groans.
"Dreadful! dreadful 1" exclaimed Eve,
"what does'all this mean?" " ' "

worshipping their Maker," replied ihefser-;

Thus, one at a time, he exhibited to their
vtews'asuccos6ion of scenes, portraying the
worst effects of the vices of mankind : The
wild excesses of guilty love: the barbarities
of - unfeeling bigotry; the cold malignity of
unbelief;, the iron inflexibility of avarice:

j "Or ln Melley's travila in Egypt we find
the follewing description bf a party of slaves
Thisgs Not so , Bad a thbt. Seem.
Just' before reaching the boats we came
upon a large party of female slaves, on their
way down to Carlo, where in the lottery o
the market, they were, to pass to new mas
lers.. They . were:. penned like sheep in
range of little huts, formed, by hanging
malting around a clump of palm trees, which
spread their" grateful shade above. It was
most' amusing, a wo 'dreW near, to see the
rush tliey made to gain cover, and how they
ducked their heads under the malting, to
avoid being seen, though curiosity brought
up many a pair of bright eyes, to look at us
as we passed. ' They were air young girls,
varying in age from twelve to sixteen; and a
merrier set could hot be met with.
i " The woods rang wiih their pleasant laugh
ter; and one might have thought what per
haps was not very far from tho truth that
in nlace of now entering the house of bon
dago, ihey had left it Jjeninii in their bwn
country. Their. masters, from all we could
learn', are uniformly kind to them; and
whenever we encountered a party, we found
that tbe girls were much attached to lhe
need ol their caravan. , .tne bevy we now
saw from . Abyssinia whence, indeed', most
of the female staves of Egypt are drawn
was destined, as lhe Abyssuian girls usually
are, for the Turkish .harems! or, as wives of
shop-keepres and aflluent Arabs. Their
color was a glossy blackj they were exceed
ingly well ; made, and. had, bright cheerful
faces, lit up by sparkling black eyes.".
