lor ? girl! What are you, prey ? What
art you ?"
w) have pat the question to myself," said
Edith, ashy pale, and pointing to the win
dow, "more than once when I hare been
sitting there, and something in the faded
likeness of my sex has wandered past out
side: and God knows 1 have met with my
reply. Oh, mother! mother! if you had
but left me to my natural heart when I too
was a girl?a younger girl than Florence
bow different I might have been ?"
Sensible that any show of anger was
useless here, her mother restrained herself,
and fell a whimpering, and bewailed, that
she had lived two long, and that her only
child bad cast her off, and tli.it duty towards
parents was forgotten in these evil days,
and that she had heard unnatural taunts,
and cares for life no longer.
"If one is to go on living through con
tinual scenes like this," she whined, "I am
sure it would be much better for me to
think of some meins of putting an end to
my existence. Ob ! the idea of you being
my daughter, Edith, and addressing me in
?uch a strain!"
"Between us, mother," returned Edith,
mournfully, "the time for mutual reproaches
is past."
"Than why do you revive it ?" whim
pered her mother- "You know that you
are laeerating me in the cruelest manner.
You know how sensitive 1 am to uokind
ness. At such a moment too, when I have
so much to think of, and am naturally anx
ious to appear to the best advantage ! 1
wonder at you, Edith. To make your mo
ther a fright upon your wedding-day !"
Edith bent the same fixed look upon her,
as she sobbed and rubbed her eyes; and
said in the same low steady voice, which
had neither risen nor fallen since first ad
dressed her, "I have said that Florence
must go home." .
"Let her go!" cried the afflicted and af
frighted parent, hastily. "1 am sure 1 am
willing she should go. What is the girl to
me ?"
"She is so much to me, that rather than
communicate, or suffer to be communicated
to her, one grain of the evil that is in my
breast, mother, 1 would renounce you, as I
?would (if you gave me cause,) renounce
him in the church to-morrow," replied Ed
ith. "Leave her alone. She shall not,
while 1 can interpose, be tampered with
and tainted by the lessons I have learned.
This is no hard condition on this bitter
"If you had proposed it in a filial man
ner, Edith," whined her mother, "perhaps
not; very likely not. But such extremely
cutting words?"
"Tbey are past and at an end between us,
now," Mid Edith. "Take your own way,
mother; share as you please in what you
have gained; spend, enjoy, make much of
M ; and be as happy as you will. The ob
ject of our lives is won. Henceforth let us
wear it silently. My lips are closed upon
the past, from this hour. I forgive you
your part in to-morrow's wiakedness. May
God forgive my own'."
Without a tremor in her voice or frame,
and passing onward with a foot that set it
self upon the neck of every soft emotion,
aha bade her mother good-night and repair
ed to her own room.
But not to rest; for there was no rest in
the tumult of her agitation when alone. To
?ad fro, and to and fro, and to and fro again,
prepaVafiotHiIfo'r adornment on the morrow;
with her dark hair shaken down, her dark
?yes flashing with a raging light, her broad
white bosom red with the cruel grasp of
the relentless hand which she spurned it
from her, pacing upand down with an aver
ted head, as she would avoid the sight of
her own fair person, and divorce herself
from its companionship. Thus, in the dead
time of the night before her bridal, Edith
Granger wrestled with her unquiet spirit,
tearless, friendless, silent, proud, and un
At length it happened that she touched
the open door which led into the room
where Florence lay.
She started, stopped, and looked in.
A light was burning there, and showed
her Florence in her bloom of innocence and
beauty, fast asleep. Edith held her breath,
and felt herself drawn on towards her.
Drawn nearer, nearer, nearer yet; at last,
drawn so near, that stooping down, she
pressed her lips to the gentle hand that lay
outside the bed, snd put it softly to her
neck. Its touch was like the prophet's rod
of old, upon the rock. Her tears sprang
forth beneath it, as she sank upon her knees,
and laid her aching head and streaming hair
upon the pillow by its side.
Thus Edith Granger passed the night be
fore bridal. Thus the sun found her on
her bridal morn.
The Wedding.
Dawn, with its passionless blank face,
ateals shivering to the church beneath which
lies the dust of little Paul and his mother,
and looks in at the windows. It is cold and
dark. Night crouches yet upon the pave
ment, and broods, sombre and heavy, in
nooks and corners of the building. The
steeple-clock, perched up above the houses,
emerging from beneath another of the count
less ripples in the tide of time that regular
ly roll and break on the eternal shore, is
greyly visible, like a stone beacon, record
ing how the sea flows on ; but within doors,
dawn, at first, can only peep at night, and
see that it is there.
Hovering feebly round the church, and
looking in, dawn moans and weeps for its
abort reign, and its tears tricklc on the win
dow-glass, and the trees aeainst the church
wall bow their heads, and wring their many
hands in sympathy. Night, growing pale
before it, gradually fades out of the church,
but lingers in the vaults below, and sits up
on the coffins. And now comes bright day,
burnishing the steeple-clock, and reddening
the spire, and drying up the tears of dawn,
and stifling its complaining; and the sacred
dawn, following the night, and chasing it
from its last retuge, shrinks into the vaults
itself, nnd hides, with a frightened face,
among the dead, until night returns, refresh
ed to drive it out.
(To be continued.)
Laziness grows on people; it begins in
cobwebs and ends in iron chains. The
more business a man has, the more he is
able to do.

Dr. Christie's Galvanic Rings and Mag
netic Fluid.
T^HIS remarkable invention, which has received
the almost universal approbation of the medical
profession of Groat Britain, comprises an entirely
new application of Galvanism, as a remedial agent
by means or which the ordinary Oulvatiic Batteries,
Electric and Magnetic Machines, Ac. aro entirely,
dispensed With, and the mysterious poWer of Galvan
ism applied without any of thb objections Which are
inseparable from Ihe general mode now iu use.
The Galvanic fling* have been ucmJ with entire
success in all oases ?f rheumatism, acute or chronic,
applying to the head, face, or limbs; gout, tic-dolo
reux, toothache, bronchitis, vertigo, nervous or sirk
headache, indigestion, paralysis, palsy, epilepsy, fits,
cramp, palpitation of the heart, apoplexy, stiffness of
the joints, spinal complaints, lumbago, neMralgla,
nervous ttcluorS, dizziness of the head, pains in the '
chest and side, general debility, deficiency of hei
vous and physical energy, and all nervous dUordor*.
In cases of confirmed dyspepsia, which is simply a
nervous dcrttngeimhl of the digestive organs, tl.ey
have been been found equally successful. Their ex
traordinary effects upon the system must be witnessed
to lie lie bclived, and as a ccrtain preventive for tho
preceding complaints they aro equally recommended.
Tho rings are of different prices, being made of all
sizes, and of various ornamental patterns, and can
be worn by the most delicate female without the
ilichtrid iitr/iiiMninn^n fr% f--? ?? iu
nor a^reeaolo Mian otherwirtt.
TliE tlx LV A NIC Bracelets, Banks,Gar
ters, Necklaces, &.c. Ac.?-These articles are
adapted to the waist, arms, wrists, limbs, ankles, or,
any part of the body with |>erfcct convenience. The
Galvanic Necklaces are used with greater benefit in
cases of bronchitis or attbcllons of tHe tliroat gener
ally ; alto, iii ciwes of nervous deafness; and with
almost uniform success as a preventive forappoplexy,
epileptic fits, and similar complaints.
Christie's Magnetic Fluid is used in connexion
with the Galvanic Kings, and all their modifications,
''his composition has been pronounced by the
French Chemists to be one of tho most extraordi.
nary discoveries of modern science. Full explana
tions and directions accompany it The combined
inventions are in every way perfectly harmless; they
are at prices within roach of all. and the discover
only requeets a fai: trial, as ft lc8t of their surprising
efficacy and permanent benefit.
CamsriE's Galvanic Sthensthenino Plas
ters.?These articles form another valuable applica
tion of the mysterious influence of Galvanism. They
are an important adjunct to the genuine Galvanic
Rings and their .-odificalions, acting upon tho same
principle, but having the advantage of more local ap- '
plication- They are confidently rccomeuded as a
valuable addition ill thfc spebdy cufe tff rheumatism,
acute or chronic; in all nervous complaints, and as a
'positive remedy in cases of pain and weakness in the
chest or back, pain in the side, in asthmatic affections,
and in weakness or oppression of the pulmonary or
gans. In spinal complaints iheir effects arc of the
most decided character, and they have often been
used with complete success. They are also of the
greatest advantage in pains and weakness of the
breast, and are highly recommonded for many of
those complaints to Which females aro especially li
able. As an effectual means for strengthening the
system when debilitated with disease and other cau
ses, as a certain aid in constitutional weakness, as
a preventive for colds, and in all affections of the
cheat generally, the Galvanic Strengthening Plas
ters will bo found of great and permanent advan
(C7* CAUTION. The celebrity and success of
these articles have caused them to be counterfeited
by unprincipled persons. Dr. Christie cautions the
public against spurious imitations. He has o it one
authorized agency in each city of the Union, where
the genuine articles can be procured. The only
agents for Washington are?
