Several years since, a young Southerner
was walking down Broadway with his bride.
As the thn ng was great, and (his couple
were engaged in pleasing convcr?alion, they
did not immediatelyjreceive that they were
followed by a young man, who took - etery
occasion m approach the lady and touch her
with his elbow.
At lengih, however, they were surprizod
by the tones of a stnng voice near them.
?Lct that woman Jone she is a married
woman I know her well. Drop her at once.
You ought to be ashamed to play your pranks
with a married woman.'
Both turned and saw the intruder, who
had, by thi time, placed himself at the lady's
side, and offering her his arm, continued
Let go ofhim, good woman, and corne
with me. I'll take vouhome to your family.1
Surprised and irritated, the young husband
was on the poiutof felling the officious med
dler to the earth, wiih a biow of the fist,
when it occuned to him that the lad must
be either an idiot or a Bedlamite; and, up
on a closer survey of his countenance, he
was convinced that the offender was irres
ponsible for his actions. The same hili
sense of honor that had once induced the
Southerner lo risk his life iu single combat
wiih the asperse r of his reputation, now check
ed his anger and unnerved his arm. Ho
scorned to offer violence to a man whose
mind. had tuet the gtiJwuca.o(.icauti, - "tie'
commanded the youth to desist, but he was
not attended to.
The young man persisted in following the
couple, offering the lady his arm, and bid
ding her husband release her and give her in
to his custody. J Uis singular scene beg in
o attract the notice oi others.
Meu and women stopped to gize, and, as
he Southerner lifted his eye., he saw a
chimney-sweeper grinning from ear to ear,
while surveying the group below from his

pposite side of the street. Ihe situation

The unfortunate obeyed, but not until he
had repeated his demand thai the nnuied

My unhappy boy does not always behave

that he would become an excelleut accoun

of the lad, whichcan never be effected. Bui

I am sorry to say the young ladies did not
seem to admire this simplicity of character
in my son. They were rather disposed to
take advantage of it, and appeared to imag
ine thai his want of duplicity was an evidence
of a shallow intellect. But, sir. my son was
not a' fool. He was ignoraut 'concerning
evil, but wise in that which is good. Unde
viating truth is not always adapted to the
furtherance of wordly purposes. The foun
dation is too broad for petty schemes or word
ly policy, and its superstructure pierces the
shadows of death, and is lighted with tho glo
ries of eternity. The strictly honest and sin
cere men ic, therefore, thought a fool for Iiis
pains. The beginning and the end of his
work cannot bo taken in at a glance, like
those works of human wisdom which are com
pleted on e&rth.
My son frequently piid us a visit, and be
at length began to speak of the merchant's
youngest daughter in terms of praise which
let us into his. secret. I candidly (old him
that he was laying up sorrow for himself, as
as it could not be supposed that the proud
daughters of a wealthy merchant, would con
descend lo smile upon the son of poverty,
and dependence.
He replied with joy spark'ing in his eyes,
that the young lady had given him every rca
son to believe thai his passion was returned.
When he was detained at the store by any
emergency, she would defer entering until
his arrival, in order tha! she might dine alone
with him; and when she had an errand lo
ihe shop in the evening, she would always
accept his company with pleasure. When
he praisod her, she cast her eyes down, and
a glow of happines overspread her counten
ance. In short, there were a thousand proofs
that her love was equal lo his. I was my
self deceived by these accounts of her con
duct, and no longer cautioned Edward against
presumption. He seemed to live in a per
fect delirium of joy. Uis sparkling counte
nance told the happiness winch dwell in his
heart. lie seemed lo lire upon love, for,
although he ate little, his appearance improv
ed, (lis cheeks bloomed like roses, and his
eyes was as brilliant as the stars. He sav
ed his rcanty earnings, denying himself many
necessaiie which his condition required, un
til he had a missed a clever little sum of
money, all of which he expended f r a cost
ly jewel. The young lady accepted his pres
piesent very graciously, and he was in rap
tures. A few days after presenting this jewel,
Edward was sent, by his employer, to call
the young ladies lo tea. As he approached
the boudoir in which they were, he heard
the sound of immoderate laughter, and soon
distinguished the voice of the young lady
herself. She was speaking of Edward; was

ic manner, tne awKwaruness which he ex
hibited iu prcseniing the jewel, which had
cost hirn the fruit of six months' toil in the
coun.mg house. N'hen he knocked ai the
door, and it was opened, the young hdy at
once assumed a modes', and even timid de
nieanor, while Ldward observed that her
sisters winked slyly at each other. Other
developments now took place, which left no
doubt on i fie mind of Edward thai ihe young
I tdy had been trifling with his ardent pass
ion. anu naa even recretea her sisters in an
adjourning ainrtment, in order tint they
might listen, unperceived lo his declarations
when he fancied himself alone with the girl
he loved. When Edward retire J, the voting
lady would join her is.ers and ll.ey would
unke merry at his expense.
'I well iecdlect the lime that my s n made
these discoveries. IIa entered the house
while we were at supper. He spoko not a
word, but sunk, like one exhausted by toil,
into a chair. .His lice was as pale as den!
his lip quiveied, and his eyes assumed ihe
glassy appearance of a person in the last ag
onies. We were aUrmed, and inquired if he
was ill.' He frankly told us whit h id hap
pened, and then begged mc to help him lo
his chamber. That clnmber he never lefi
until ten days had expired, and when he
came forth lie resembled a skeleton. He

he was unable lo endure tho lortuiin" reflec-

incoherently, as you tiny have observed this
day. The merchant called for several d iys.
to inquire after Edward's health; being very
disiious to have his services; bill EdwaYd
could never be induced to see him and we,
on our part, never revealed to the merchant
the cause of litis malady.1
Here ended the narration, hut not the ac
quaintance between the Southerner and the
mechanic. The former called several times
at ihe house of ihe latter, and evinced real
sympiihy for the voung man who had so
harassed him while walking with his lady in
While the Southerner was preparing to re
turn to his native state, he had occasion lo
call at a pawnbrokers fficer A friend of !
his, while on a visit lo New York, had lost a
valuable article which was supposed to have
been pawned. He had requested this gen
tleman to makrora9 inquiries respecting it.
Ou entering the pawnbrntr office, the
Southerner observed several persons at the
3 One of them was ab.iut piwn'ng some "ar
ticle which she said (die would redeem in n
few days, and wanted to be very sure that
it would be taken good care of; for, said
she, in broken accents, it is the gift of one
very, very dear to me.
Our gentleman was interested, and took
pains to see the article, which proved to be
a Valuable jewel. The young lady was also
very beautiful. He despatched his busi
ness as soon us possible, and hurried after
the maiden. He courteously beggrd her to
listen to him. lie told her he would give
her the money to redeem the jewel immedi
ately, if she wished. She hesitated but on
fixing her eyes on the Southerner's counten
ance, she read nothing there but high honor
and disinterested sympathy. She accepted
the offer, for she could oot reluse, so urgent
was her benefactor.
On their wayto the office, she told the
Southerner thai'she had been, recently, the
child of affluence; but that, during the tre
mendous crash in the mercantile world, that
had occurred but a short time before, her
father had failed had been utterly ruined
This disaster sent him to the grave, and her
mother's death soon followed.
She was now very poor, aud nothing but
the most pressing want could have induced
her to pawn that jewel; 'for, alas! said she,
it was presented to me by one whom 1 have
since learned to prize, but whose constant
heart I trampled upon, and whose devoted
affection I treated as a matter of jest and
merriment. Too dearly have I since learn
ed how tu prize true friendship, and to des
pise hollow-hearted insincerity.1.
The Southerner evinced great emotion;
but he accompanied the lady to the door ol
the pnwn-brokera office. When she came
out, he was waiting for her.
'Pray, madam,1 said he, would you have
any objection to act as governess in a .very
respectable family V
'I should be glad of the opportunity,1 she
replied, with a look of gratitude which' wen
to his heart.
. Then come with me. I will introduce
you at once.1
They walked about half a milo together,
when they reached the house of Edward1
father. He ushered her in without ceremo
ny. The parents of Edward, were seated
before the fire. Both rose on the entrance
of the Southerner, and he called for Edward,
who immediately came from another, apart
ment. In the moment that the lady beheld
him, she exclaimed
'Mercilul Providence! it is he the lost,
the beloved Edward!1
The youth rushed forward and caught her
in his arms, as she was sinking lo the floor,
completely overpowered by the shock which
this sudden introduction occasioned her.
Maria! Maria!1 cried Edward, 'can this be
yout Awake! look up, .and tell ine it is.1
'Amazement!1 exclaimed the father: this
must be Miss De Frost!1
Maria De Frost1 cried the Southerner
now in his turn suiprized; and he smote his
hands loüelher joyfully.
By this time Maria had recovered her con
sciousness. When iho first transport had,
in some degree, subsided, the Southerner
stepped forward and ttok the hand of the
young lady.
Miss De Frost,' said he, I have sough
for you in every genteel part of the city.
You had an uncle in South Carolina, by the
name of William De Fiost. You were a prea
favorite of his when a child. He has recent

fitly thousand dollars. I am his executor
and can, therefore, pay over the money im
'Happy am I, then, cried Maria, as she
turned agam to Edward, 'lo be able to throw

a treasure, which, however, tuins to dros
