With an eye, downcast, yet glowing,
and a firm, raised hand, Fannie wrote
her name, and g:ave him the card in
'Thank you. You've done a great
deal to-day, and this is'ut the least."
"Stop a tmontelit !" cried Fannie,
blushing. "You ought to tell rme your

tearaftor. I shall, if you are strong
"Don't ask me that," he exclaimed,
redd'oning. "I should have to tell you
if you asked me, and I don't want to
do that yet. But if you'll only let me
write to you once in a while, and tell
you how I am getting along; or, if you'll
read what I write--won't you do it?
You need'nt fear any thing. I'll never
sign any name, until I can sign one
that you have heard of. Don't say
no, for I'm bound to do it. 'Twill help
me along so much. Good bye !"
And in an instant he was out ofsight.
For a little while we looked at each
other without exchanging a word.
"Well, this is an odd adventure.
Only think ofyour talking half an hour
with a ragged street boy !"
"I an not sorry for it," replied Fan.
"You have no cause to be sorry,"
said I, rather warmly; and then, after
a pause-"Only think, Fannie, it this
savage young Orson should turn out
to be your Valentine at lasi!"
"Pshaw, Carrie! you don't know
what you are saying. Let us drop
the subject. I wonder, though, if
we ever shall hear of him again. Don't
"Certainly," said I, and then we
talked of something else.
The first part of my story has been
so long, that I must hurry over the
rest, and let Famie's.letters tell it all
in a few words.
Several years passed by. Fannie
had received one or two notes from
this reclaimed Orson, reporting his
gradual success, but they are in her
own possession, and I eannot show
them to you. One ktt.er that she wrote
to me, while I was in Vera Cruz, will
'be enough to explaina every thing, and
a'll wind up my story with that. I
-have some others here, giving the sub.
ject a passing mention from time to
.timre, but none so full as this. A s you
'will perceire, it was written under the
excitemcnt of strong curiosity, but it
is really provoking that she did not
delay sending it to the post office just
.one hour !
"Dear Carrie.-Just now I am in
sad perplexity, and though I know that
all will be settled in one short hour, I
cannot help sitting dowvn and making
you a sharer in my troubles. And to
punish you for your long silence, I
shall a~nd this letter before the cause
of my perplexity is removed, so that
you will remain in suspense until you
make yourself entitled to an answer
and an explanation. If you lake any
interest in my af~airs, this may secure
me a letter from you before many
days are over.
"You cannot have forgotten our
meeting with young Orson, as you call
him, for I have occasionally written
you an abstract of the reports of his
success, with which he sometimes fa
vors me. Only read now this note,
which I have just received from the
"' If you have read my letters from
time to time, you must know that I
have finally succeeded in mastering the
lesson of life which you placed btefore
my eyes. You first taught mec that a
real soul could exist ini one so ignor
ans,. and wretched as I then was, amid
that this soul could only be doveloped
through severe mental labor. I found,
also, that painful bodily delving was
necessary before I could have an op.
portunity to exercise my mind, and I
-struggled through it. Tihen, there was
the work of many lost years crowded
into a few, but I succeede-l in that,
also. When the preparation was over,
I found that success must be toiled for,
and I have grasped it-finally, the po
sition for which I strove, I have gained
-all through your impulse.
"'I could not have worn myself
thus for mere success in life. You
must know that there was another
motive-you, who saw my rude n.
ture conquered by your own noble
nets. My only capital in life was the
little card on which you inscribed
your name, and from this I have
wrought, what is to me a fortune. My

could have carried me through the past

This, sir, is all that I know. Fannie

with delight upona the eventful future,
while the good old man, warmed in thec
genial glow of youthful enthtusiasm,

happy. I mot them again when the
rollinig year brought the festive season

They are all dead.
"I, too, sat at the board, I pledged

Was it in watr, or inau.i...,i,.. lium..?
If' in the latter, the cause of the ruin
ofthis 'ruined fhitly' can be easily

Tradiug with Sltaves.
The laws of S'uth Carolina in regard
to trading with slaves are very rigid.
The penalty is not less than one mont hs
imprisonmnent, and one hundred dol
lars, and may be, in the discretion of
the Court, one 1hiousand dollars, and
twelve months' imprisonment. The
law requires, too, that the permit from
the slave's master to trade shall be in
writing and be produced on the trial.
No shop keeper or distillt r is allowed
to sell or give spirits to a slave under
a heavy penalty. A slave seen goi.g
into a shop with an article and coining
out without it, or seon going in with
out an art'ele and coming out of the
shop with it is proof snfficient to convict
the shop keeper of trading with a slave,
These are severe laws and it was found
neces-.ary to pass them to break up
traflicking with slaves.
It is known that there is a great
number of persons who do not seen
to regard these laws. They trade with
slaves without thinking of the mischief
they are doing. Chiekings, eggs and
fruits of all kind are purchased of'
slaves without reflecting that it is of
ten stolen property they are purchas
ing. It is seldom that poultry or fruit
is sold in the village of Greenville by
slaves that is not stolen from their
owners or some one else. Every cor
rect man, and women, too. should he
exceedingly careful to purchase nothing
of a slave without a written permit. to
Merchants especially should be care
f'ul to observe this well. Otherwise
they are encouraging the slave to steal.
It may be true that a merchant or shop
keeper would not trade for any article
of produce with a slave. But if he will
sell his wares and goods to a slave fur
money, he thereby eneourages the
slave to steal the money or something
else to get the money with. It mait.
ters nost that the trader rnay know the
slave to be honest. le should consid
er that he is violating the lawv, and
running the risk of crimiinal pirosecutiomn
and likewise he may be mistaken as
to honesty of' the slave.
The facility which slaves hiave of
stealing f:omn their owners and others
makes it the saeied duty of every,
well disposed and hotiest nian to be
particular in receiving or purchasing
any thling from a slave without the
written consent of his owner. TIhis
particularity, the other day, on part
of a townsmnan, saved us a peice of sil.
ver. A iid a few meonths ageo this same
honest sort of particularity saved us a
fine shiiat which had been captured by
a neighsb.or's slave and carried into
market. We understand likewise, if
some o~hers had been equally careful
and prudent, anothers peice of' property
might have beeun saved, which wvas
sold by onei of' our slaves. We have
frequently heard of the compluaint in
the onunt.ry amongst our firmiers that
they cotuld not keep their turkeys and
chickens and eggs unitil they sawv prop.
er to sell them or eat thenm, that they
were all stolen and carried to the v'il.
