To begin with, I have an inveleiate (lis like of Theophilus Mansitl, a bitter . 1 ! I . gnawing oiMiae. Ao in in loves, es teem- his wife in a mild, beeii-man ied leii-jears sort of way, more than I do mine.

That, at least, is njy opinion, nnd I suqpo.se that ol all sensible men. Well, Cluike, it's ju.-t because I should never have married Maria but for Manzel that I hate the fellow. At leari, that wai the original cause of my hatred. 'I have no skill for the tion of riddles.' 'Ti.eie will he r,o skill required w hen you hear how the marriage was brought about. A man may relish a interprets uelicate, substantial dinner, but would not particularly like being kic'.e along Cheapside into the London Tuv ern to partake of it." That would certainly be an objec tionable grace befoie meat.' Decidedly so. This then, was how lb it ceremoiiiul catastrophe was hro't about. Y'ou know very well that when 1 started fur Reading I was 'a blight ed being.' Thanks to a pretty tree use of brandy and water and cigars, 1 revived sooner than could have been expected. I scrambled through my apprenticeship pretty well, and re turned to London in high feather just one Wetk before my father's namu ap peared in the Gazelle. My mother had been di ad between twu and three years. Her husband followed before the formalities of bankruptcy were completed, and I wi.s le't to my own resources. Ample resources truly. About five pounds in cash, two suits of clothes, both Ihe worse for wear, and not (he slightest love of work ; not, at all events, for its own sake. It was neccessary, however, to Seek it out ; tit I left Chelsea to take lodgings in business Loudon. Chancing to stroll along John street, Filzroy square 1 met my destiny at o. C, in one of the windows of which rather dingy domicile a paper informed passers by that 'A room was lo be let within for a single man.' 1 knocked ; the door was opened by Maria Kent, now and for uvcr ten jears past Mis. l'eudrill. Terms, ilne shillings a week foe the parlor next ihe sky, with a turn up bedriead in it. I agreed, and o.'ept at No. C that same night. The house was tub r hly well furnished, and let oui iu lodgings by M. Matizei and his wife, the wile being M o i t Kent's mother. I rather took a fancy to Ma ria, nothing at all senc js, but a fancy ; like to play a game of cnbbage with her of an evening after I came home tired, dispirited, with vainly Seeking lir employim-tit. 'Ihe grim ogress. Madam il.iiuel, as she called herself, frowned severely at our little familiar ed it then doubtfully, I have no doubt now but it's Icvil's wealth.

'Mr. Pemb ell,' said Maria, when 1 relumed borne, alter more than usually wearisome d iy of disap pointment, Mill she looking fresh as a rose, luerry as a lark, 'Mr. I'cndn II, mamma has gi'cn mo something for you.'

'Come,' a hied Ma ria, 'get leady at once. 1 can p iy lor the cab, there and home !' That was the beginning of it ; the end wa, that we weie mat ried by license at St. John's Church old Grim Gaubber. forking out the expenses with the lib eralily of a prince. . We were to live at No. 6 liil Manz-il could find an eli gible opportunity to set me up in busi ness, iu ihe grocery line. There was a first-rate wedding breakfast ; after which we set off for Margate, on our wedding trip. A very pl.:as:int wed ding trip it was.

At ail events, mat is my opinion, and I don't waul lo be ur gued out of it. The very day ul'ler our return, continued l'endiell, 'old Uealli's-head, looking glimmer and ghastlier than ever, and with a goh:iu on his lace, comes into the room vvoere Maria and I wero breakfasting with a 'lou rnust know that Mann! hajito your advantage That was .1. then, as he ha now, a soil of occult j Jantcl' errant.

Come to me ; come close,' she ex claimed ; 'but first clear the room turn everybody out everybody out!' lhere was no one but a nurse present : the doctor, who hud been sent for, not having arrived. The woman left the room, and I, at the gesture of her with ei ed hands, stepped lo the head of the bed, nnd bent down to hear what she w ished to say, her voice dropping sud denly to a whisper : 'Tell Maria nev er lo accept never polute her soil. perha is endanger her lile, by accent ing anything, any jewels, she may liud after hit death I They are dved in blood innocent, Venerable blood.
