1 ran out of the room into the garden through
the side door, whicualways stood open in not weath

flew on in the bitterness of my wounded spirit, un
til I found the shade and quiet I wanted under a
large hoary apple tree, which stood in the neighbor

tense; even thoground on which I lay seemed to
Duru the bare arms crossed beneath my humbled
Lead. I knew there was not a cloud in. the radiant
sky above me; I felt there was not a breath of wind
stirring, not enough even to rustle the thick leaves
of .the orchard trees. The garnish brilliancy, the
saljry stillness, oppressed me almost more than I
could bear. If I could have hidden myself from
the sight of the sun, ir I could havo cheated my own
consciousness, I would liave glady done so. I will
not believe that the world held, at that moment, a
more wretched being than I wa3, that any grown
up man or woman with developed faculties ever
suffered more keenly from the pangs of self con
tempt. For, let me at once tell the reader, I was no vic--tim
of injustice or misconstruction; the words with
which! had been drivrn from the house-were iusti-
. lied by what I had done. I was fourteen years of
age, 1 hail been careiniiy ana Kindly educated, none
knew tetter than I the differences between right
and wrong; yet in spite of age, teaching, and the
intellect's enlighfment, I had jest beea guilty of a
gross moral transgression: I ha been convicted of

Eulsive lie, escaping nie in some exigency, but a de

AVlty, I "was; what they thought me; I could not defy
their contempt, but must take It as "my tide, i'
might get angry, bttt'who would mind ;ny anger?
A thousand thougnts exasperated my angnisn,
caused strong throbs of ambition, and very often
my aunt had Ienf 'a kind ear to the outpouring of
such eriio'tiol!'. Tho case would be altered now. I
might read, indeed, but such feelings I must henee
forth keep to myself; who would have patience to
hear me thus expatiate? ' 1 was cut off from fellow
ship with the good.
1 must give up, too, my little class at the village
Sunday school, which 1 l'ad been so proud to un
dertake. I low could I, despised at home, go among
the children us before? 1 could never talk to them
as I used to venture to do. They would know it,
as all the world would know; they would mock me
in their hearts each feeling she was better than I.
1 rose up from the grass, for my state of mind would
bear the prone attitude no 'longer, and leaning
' against the tree, looked around me. Oh! the merry
games I bad had in this orchard. The recollection
brought a flood of bitter tears to ray eyes I had
not cried before for 1 was sure that time was past;
1 should never have another. "Never, never!" I
cried, wringing my hands: I shall never have .the
heart to play .again, even if they would play with
me. I am another girl now."
Jn truth, my brief experience seemed to have
oldened me, to havo matured ray faculties. I saw
myself in a kind of vague, confused vision, as I
might have been, as 1 could never uow liecome.
Xo; life was an altered thing from what it had -ap-i
eared yesterday; I had marred its capabilities on
the threshhold. "l conld get a glimpse of the house
through the trees; I could sec the parlor windows;
where, within the shady room, tea was even now
being prepared for the expected visitor. Ah! that
visiter, with whom I used to be a favorite, who
had always been so kind he was now on his way
with the same heart towards me, little knowing
what had liappencd. little thinking I was ruined.
Does this description of my state of mind, of my
sense of guilt,seem overstrained; It is possible X
give a little more coherence to my reflections than
they had at the time, but I cannot color too highly
the anguish of humiliation they produced; it was
almost intolerable. '! suppose," paid I.moodtly to
myself, foe a re-action was commencing "I suppose
1 shan't always feel like this, or 1 should go mad.

was hot with the search, and angry jthat I had not
answered; moreover, what boy of his age, in the
lustihocd of a dozen summers, knoweth aught of
'tenderness or consideration? "There you arc, miss,"
said lie savagely, "and a prettv hunt I've had!
You're to come into tea; ant! another time don't
give better people the trouble of fetching you; they
don't like it, 1 can tell you."
lie was off again, eager for his meal, but I stop
ped him. "Bob, is Mr. Kllison come?" 1 cried.
"I lours ago; and he and mother have been shnt
up ever so long, talking about you, I know; and
don't 'Hob' me, if vou please, Hiss Mabel; 1 don't
like it!" "..
My spirit swelled. "N'as this to be the way? One
touch of boyish kindness, and I could havo almost
kissed bis ftot; now-1 walked back to the house
with a bitter. "1 won't care" swelling at my heart.
I niav -as well say here, th6ugh scarcely necessary
to the moral of any story, that I was an adopted
child in the large family of, my. aunt. She was a
widow, and had been ever since I had lived with
her; and 1, as will be supposed, was an orphan. She
had in .her .own right u good income, though slie
only held in trust for her eldest son the substantial
.manor farm on which wc resided. I was not poor;
'indeed, I was in some sort an.keircss; ami Mr- Klli
son, my.aunt's honored friend and her husband's
executor, was joint guardian over m'e with, herself,
1 had beeu brought up to fear and reverence him;
he hud taught me to love him. My degradation; in
lits eyes was tlie bitterest drop in my self-mixed
cup- ., - . 4
As I entered the hall, my aunt came out to meet,
me, and took me with her iiito another room. "Ma
bel," she said, "yon are to take your place at the
table with us as'.usual for the present. I have spo
ken to'your'guardian about you, but I scarcely
knoW 'wIiaf we may finally decide upon in the mat
icr. You are to old to be whipped or sent to bed;
5ut though you are to be suffered to cpme amongst

once did, Or if we seem to do so, it will bo because
we forget. Yonr sin justifies a constant mistrust;
for my part, I .can never think of you as before,

Tthiuk I ought, even if it were possible. But now
'come in to tea." '
"I wan't no tea," said I Intterly. "I can't see
Mr. Ellison. Oh! need he have known it?"
"Mabcij" was the answer, "it would have been
batter had vou feared the lie as y6u fear its discov
ery." " . '
I sat down on a chair, and leaned my head on a
table near. I had hot a word to say for myself, or
against the treatment 'adopted. My aunt was a
woman of severe" rectitude, and had brought 'tis all
up with deep solicitude; and, I believe, prayerful
care. She thought; lying an almost unpardonable
sin, for she looked lipon it as a proof of nearly hope
less mroal;deprayity: and my falsehood had been an
aggravated one. Many, with a less strict sense of

my delinquency might have beea more severe. I
could not blame her. "At least," I said, "you won't
make me come in?"
-Xo," she returned, and went back to tho parlor.
I went op stairs to my bedroom, where I spent
the rest of tlie evening. Xo inquiries were made
after me. TVhen itrew dark, I undressed and
threw myself into bed. I effered no prayer for
God's forgiveness; mine was not so ninch penitence
as remorse. Had I been a man who had blasted
his prospects in life by the. commission of some
deadly sin. I could scarcely have felt more morally
lost, more hopeless about the future. 31 v aunt had
represented my sin in appallng colors; and rnv2
whole previous education and turn of mind made,
me feel its turpitude strongly; the possibility of re
pairing it had not been urged unon me, bat rather
denied. I thought it would colo'r and prejudice" mv
whole after life, that I had lost caste for ever.
I scarcely slept at all. and. got np mentally, sick,
physically worn out. I dared not stay away from
the breakfast table, so I made haste to be first down
stairs. The windows of our pleasant morning room
were open, there had been rain during the night,
and it was One of those fresh laughing mornings
which I should have so enjoyed once. Once! yes, it
was a long time, ago. The whole aspect of the
apartment within," of refreshed nature without, had
an eminently pleasant eflect; or rather, I thought it
would have to other eyes. I-tooTca seat in the
shade; I had a dim idea (I knew not'wbetker it were
hopo orMread) that Mr. Ellison might come ia be-,
fore the. olhe're, bnt he did not. He and 'inv aunt
came in together, and they were closely followed
by the children.
He. was a man of about fifty years of ige, with
a figure and countenance which, in youth might
have'been handsome, but which had "suffered too
severely from what I suppose' were the effects of
time, to bo so now. He had, too, an air of gravity
and reticence, which rather oppressed a stranger
unacquainted" with the minute sympathies, the com
prehensive benevolence it veiled.
He came up to me where I sat, dejected and Hum- "j
Diet!, anu hem out hi3 JiDnJ. lo my surprise, and,
I may say, to my exquisite pain, he spoke .to me
much a3 usual. I could almost have thpusht, more
tenderly than usual. 1 dared not Iook.up as 1 mur- j
niureu my lnatuuuic answer. .My aunt gave 'me a
chilling "good morningt" my youtg codsius looked
at me shyly, but did not speak. X o one-spoke r to
me during breakfast except my guardian, and he;
only in connection with the courtesies of the. table-
and not Tieing able to bear this, I crept out of the
room as soon as I Uaml. 1 1 waar the same at very
othec meal; and all the intervals between I jstient
alone, unsought, unquestioned, suffering a fiery
trial. 1 tlon.t dwell on the details Dl my.expenetice

knows, neVe'r more. However, as may "be suppo
sed, I slept a little that night, for nature would
bear up no longer.
..The next dav came, breakfast passed as before.
.and, as before, 'l was stealing out of the room, wlieri
mv guaraiait called me back.

The accents of generous sympathy with which

I cried in an agony; "Iain miserable; f shall always

forever. Xo one will trust me again, no one can
respect me. Oh! it's dreadful!" I shuddered in
stinctively. "Then what Is to follow?" asked Mr. Ellison, "Js

spread till it infects your whole character? Are all
duties' to'l.-e' neglected because you have failed in
one? and are yon to live ou, perhaps to foarscore,

Mabel " " ...
"Pardon my interrupting you, Mr. Ellison, in
terposed inv aunt, "bat this is scarcely the way to
treat my niece. You will make her think lightly
of the dreadful sin she ha3 committed, she will fancy
her compunction extreme, whereas no repentance
can be sufficient. Don't try to soften her present
impression. I would have her carry with herto
the grave the salutary sense sho seems to have of
what she has done.
"Itootsaid my guardian fervently, "1 would
teach her a lesson she would never lorget, but it
would be differently put from yotirs. llefore God,
I grant you, no amount of penitence would suffice
to procure that atonement which is freely given on
wider grounds; but as regards her relations to her
fellow beings, to her future life, Mabel argues
wrong; men in general, tho world at large, you
yourself, niy dear madam, appear to- me to argue
wrong on thi3 subject."
My aunt colored. "Pardon me," she said stifly,
"I think we cannot understand each other."
"Perhaps," said he, "I have misunderstood
vou; but if you will suffer a direct question, it will
settle the point. Suppose that, in the future, Ma
bel's conduct should be exemplary, would you fully
restore her to the place she once held iu your es.
I looked anxiously towards my aunt; the ques
tion was a momentous one to me. Sire seemed to
"It is. painful to say it," she replied at length;
"but 1 must be conscientious in such a case, Mabel
would in a great measure regain my esteem; bnt to

considering that this youthful sin will impair her

"I think," a'nswcrcd my aunt, "that is tlie penal

and humble through life. - The comparatively clear
conscience will be better fitted for good deeds than
There was a pause; my heart liad sunk again.
Mr. Ellison rose and began to walk up and down
"Suppose a -case, madam,"' hesaid presently, and
in a constrained tone "where an honorable' mau;
under strong temptation, has committed a. dishon
orable action; or a merciful man a cruel one; liave
they marred life, and must they go softly all' the
rest of their days? Must tltej' "leave to other men
the fulfillment" of high duties, the pursuit and
achievement of moral excellence? would, you think
it unseemly if, at any after period, you hear the one
urging on some conscience the necessity of recti

olcticci or must thoy, conscious tlint transgression

"My dear Mr. Ellison," said my aunt, looking
with surprise at my guardian, who had certainly
warmed info unusual energy "I tliink we are wan
dering from the point. Such :a discussion as this
will not do Mabel any good, but rather harm if 1
understand you to mean that wc are not material

doctrine, sir, and a very Dangerous one.--
"Mv dear friend," retnrned my guardian, gently
"fur b"e,it from me, to say that .our transgressions
do not materially affict' us! I do not, gainsay your
view of thd life long humilty which a human being
should feel for a criminal act, but I would intro

think the plan on which society goes of judging the

"5fo doubt," said my aunt, "it does bear hard in
particular cases; but it i3 the arrangement of Prov

or for doing good in his generation, surely it would
have been in Peter's case. But we know that story.
My dear madam"1 and Mr. Ellison, lavinsr his
iand on my head, looked appealingly towards rnv
aunt "I desire to speak reverently; but think vou",
afler Christ's charge, even John. Abdiel like disci
ple as he was, ever presumed to sav or feel that he
could never esteem or look upon i'cter as he once
did? This is what is forbidden us to look upon
men as failed below their chance of recovery." Zly
aunt was silent, but I could see she was impressed.
jys ior me, l telt as u a load were being slowly
lifted off my heart, and it swelled with a passion
ate aspiration to recover, with God's help, my form
er standing, and press on in the upward way. And
weald I not, through life, be tender and merciful to
the penitent wrong doer? If I speak warmly on
this subject, continued my guardian, "it is because
mv own experience furnishes mo with a proof of
how low an honorable man may fail, and how far
the magnanimity, or rather jos'tice. I have becnad

May I tell you .a short story?"
'""Certainly," said my aunt; but she looked uneasi
ly towards me,
"Let Mabel stay and hear me,1' raid Mr. Ellison,
"the lesson is for hec to learn, and ray, story will do
her no harm."
He took a few turns through the room, as if col",
lecting his thoughts. and then liegaa. If my read
ers wonder why, at fourteen, my: memory.- retained
the details of such a conversation. let jue explain,
that many times since then, has this subject been
renewtd ajid discussed by my guardian and me.
"Many ypars back," said .Mr. Ellison. "I knew
two friends. They were young men of very difler
ent character, but" for aught . I know, that might
have )ceii the secret of their attachment. The.
elder, whomfor distinction's sake, 1 will call Paul
' was of a thoughtful, reserved turn of mind. He
was given a good d"al to speculations about tiiQ,
moral capacities awl infirmities of his own nature
and that of his race, and hair a deep inward enthu

had to contend against it, and strove to mus

sliip enjoined, he saw plainly Eleanor fa vored the

the house, in spite of the double welcome his rela

Paul was rich had ohtained fbr him there. Time
passed, and Paul wat still at war with an nticon
quercd weakuess, -when Clement got an appoint

"Pefore you go," said Paul to him, "von will
speak to Eleanor?"
"Xo," said Clement, after painful deliberation,
"the chances of my success are still doubtful, when
I-have proved them, and can satisfy her parents, I
will write:!' " " '
"You may. lose her through, your pver-scrnpu-lousness."
"I may," said Clement; "but if she loves me. she
has read my heart, and I can trust her."
"Cleincut, therefore, took his secret to India with
him, and Paul was left at home, to fight with a gi
gantic temptation. I need not go into tlie subtle
ness it assumed; but for a long time he wa3 proof
against them. He would not sacrifice honor and

with a kindness she had nevershnwn liefore. Her
parents politely hoped, when he row to leae, that
they were not "to lose his society as well as Cle
ment's. That night cast the die. "I love lier."
said Paul to himself; " Clemen tnloosj no- more. T
have the 3ame right a3 he to-lie happy." "Madam."
added Mr. Ellison abruptly, "you guess what fol
lowed. Paul, with his keen sense of rectitude, his
ambitions aspirations, yielded, atid fell."
My guardian paused. M y whole girl's heart was
in his storv: 1 forgot my humble position, exclaim
ed eagerly "But did Eleanor lovp him?"
Mi Ellison looked at me quickly, and then half
smiled. The smite was a relief to me, for it brought
back the usiiafccxpression which he had lost during
the telling of this story. "You shall hear," he re
sumed presently. "Paul having decided to act a
fraudulent and "unworthy part, used all his powers
to- gain his objeot. "Honor and self-respect I have
lo$t," lie said: "love and gratification I must liave."
It wa3 a terrible period that followed. The suit
he urged with such untiring zeal seemed to gain
slow favor .with Eleandnr. Her parents were al
rcady hlfupportera: and with the irritating hopos
and "fears of un ardent but haflled. lover, were-mixed
the stinging agoniea of remorse and shame.
Clement's periodical IctteM long since unanswered,
were now unread; to Iiirrr, such as h now was, they
were addressed that 3weet I'rwn.lship was baried
along with his youth's integrit. I will not lin

ho misnamed ioy, he had, bnt his blessedness had
escaped him. Xot ofily his conscience told him

ceived. To hear her express at any time indig
nant scorn 6f what was base and mean, wis a
.moral torture So exquisitely acute that only those
can conccive.it wlio have stooped to a like degreda
tibn. A night or two before the day appointed for
life wedding, Paul went as tinal to her house.
1 Just before he took his leave, Eleanor left the mom,
and returned with a letter! There was a glow on
jicr cheek as she gave it to him. "I have long de
termined,'1 she said, "to have tio momentous; setrets
from him who is to be my husband; it will be bet
ter for you to know this."
. "He "took the letter. I see you guess the sequel:
It was from Clement. It told tho story of his
long silent love, for he was in a position to satisfy
his own scruples nnd telt it. "With the fear upon
hi3 mind that even now his treasure might escape
him, Pual clung to it more tenaciously than ever;
passion smothered remorse. "Well." he asked,
looking at her almost fiercely, "does the secret go
no further?" , ,
"Very little further, Paul,' said Eleanor gravely.
'I loved Clement once, but I thought he trifled with
me; were it not now honorably too late I love you
n"PauI felt a sudden impulse! to confess the whole
trnth, but it was transient. He had felt many such
an impulse before, but had conquered it; should he,
on the eve of possession, with that assurance, in
his ears, yield now?"
"But Mr. Ellison," I cried, interrupting him with
the matter-of-fact sagacity of a child, 'didn't it
seem strange to Eleanor that Paul had told Cle
ment nothing about hi3 engagement!"
tAh, Mabel,' sighed my guardian, "no great sin
but has its les3er ones. Long since, Paul had found
prize which he had sought at yucti a cwst;,rLaiiiors
consent was gained, and the marriage day was ap
nnlnted. I don't think even iIkhi lie so deceived
it necessary to tell Eleanor a false story concern'
ing his present suspension of intercourse with. Cle
ment.' I think this absolute lie of Paul's touched my
aunt as sensibly 33 any point in the history, forshe
broke silence. 'And what.' she said, 'was tl-
I of thU young man's history? Are you going to
ten us we must not despise him:
"One moment longer," urged my guardian, "arid
you shall pass your judgment. Paul married Elea

not the rule of this life. Yet why do I say alas?
has it not a higher rule? lie married her lieu,
each loved the other, but Paul was a miserable man.
nis friends noticed it, naturally then his wife; bat
he kept hiisecret; no wonder months wrought up
on him the effect of years. Xevertheless, he neg
lected his duties he had no heart for them; self
contempt, a bitter remorse, cankered cvprv nsnira-
tion, enfeebled effort, sapped and destroyed his ca-
Fibilities. Life, slipped, wasted tla-ough" his fingers,
could not." said Mr. Ellison, give you an idea of
what hesuhvred, but I believe he was at this time
deeply mistaken, increasingly criminal. If a man'ii
sin be black as hell and he wa3 black remorse
cannot mend it; so long as he lives, life requires du
ties and effort from him, let him not think he is free
to spend it'in thi3 selfish absorption."
i "True," said myauntbnt let him not expect
even though ie strive lo rise and partiaHy succeed,
.that he is to be respected, as a worthier man."
"A year pa!sed," resumed ray guardian, without
heeding-the remark; "and Clement relumed to Eng
land. Originally, he had a noble soul; sanctifying"
sorrow had made him great. He inquired after
his former friend; wrote to him, assuring him Jra
could meet Eleanor now with the calmnessof friend
ship; any forced himself upon him. I say forced,
for naturally, Olenient was, to Paul an accusing an
gel. An agonised retribution was at hand for tha
latter. Eleanor died in her first confiuenwnt, after
a few hours illness; her infant even died before her.
In this extremity, well was it for Paul that Cle
ment was at hand: in his: overwhelming grief the
past seemed eauoelled; he could claim and endure
Lis friemls magiramlom tenderness. "Vheu he re-
' covered from this stroke, he roused himself to a
' new existence. Clement liad succeeded in convin
cing him of his- forgiveness, of his friendship even.
-After the-first shock of feelings.'' he said, "the,
thought of what a- nature like yours must suffer,
which liad been tempted to such an act, changed,
slowly I grant, but still changed resentment into
sympathy. Per my own consolation, I studied the
.Xew Testament;. it hastaught me lessons, which I
think, Paul, you, as well as I have missed. I
won't insult yon by dwelling on my free pardon; if
1L13 worthy 01 acknowledgement, put your hand
once more to the though, labor for the welfare of
Others and so work nut your own." He argaed
against remorse, and, urged tho considerations which
1 have brought more freely forward, with such ef
fect, that Panl laid them lo heart, and strove to
test their truth. "With God's forgiveness sought
and obtained, and tlKtt of the man lie hod injured
with principles drawn from a deeper and a di
viner source than he had known befcie with a
spirit liambleil but not cruslied. he proved that life
stilt ,hty before him as a field for honorable and re
innnerativH'ktbor. I believe his friend respected
li uit more in- this second stage ot Ids experience
f hftn lK'fore; I know, he did not respect him less.
Will uuy other presume to do so?" asked Mr. Elli
son, approaching my aunt. "My dear friend, won
der not at my tenderness to Mabel; that is the sal
utary result of si seven au experience; it is my
own story I have told."
I think my aunt must have guessed the truth ere
this, for She matle no immediate answer. 1 wo si

looked at me. "Mabel." lie mid earnestly, "let me
not have humbled rmwelf before you in vain. God
preserve you from sinning against your own nature
ami Him; but where you fall, God give you grace
arid strength to rise and strive again. And grant
me this. too. my child; in after life you may have
much influence-; for my sake, for your own expe
rience, of suileriog ami shaaie, be merciful to the
wrong-doer! Make it one of your duties to help

vince her, that all U not lost in oue false step.

"Mr. Ellixon," Mtid my aunt, "the life of effort
ami self-denial you have led condemns my severity.
1 have been, too harsh: but I must serioesly review
this argument.' Mbel come here!" I approached
her timidly; she drew me nearer. "One must still
rejieut before they ean be pardoned," shesatd;"but
I think you do reieut. Mabel!"
My tears flowed. "Aunt, forgive me," X whis
pered; "I aei sorry indeed. I don't like to say it,
bat I think I shall never tell a lie again!"
She kissed hie, and rose up; there were tears in
her eyes. "Let it be, then, as though it had nevtr
beeu.'except to teach you Mr. Ellison's lesson," she
said. She then approached my guardian. "I knew
not," she added in a softened tone, and holding out
her hand with an air of respect, "how much you
lost some years ago by Clement's death. Hence
forth, yon "anil I will be better friends."
Mr.'Elllson pressed her hand in sdencerl saw he
could tiOt spenkt I bad an instinct that he would
wish to be alone, so I followed my aunt quickly out
of the room.
Sho turned kindly round and despatched me on
soine message as of "old; I felt I was forgiven! Be
fore fulfilling it. I ran into my room and shut tho
door; tlien kneeling down by the lied-side, I prayed
as-I had not before done, with softened heart and
contrite tears, for God's forgiveness.
