Iu a miuute or two a little Greek girl, I'hiliuu, a Mster of Athcnea, cume bound ing up tho fctaire, and khook Hugan by the hand. They'd hardly 'let u come, Mr, Hugan, ahc t-Hid laughingly, for Athene was juxt going to dance with that dreadful man Mr. Schelmer, but 1 mad them. 11 y thia lime the party had swept iu. The father, au old Arab, -with a fine heard aud a significant face; the cross, a-iilgir-looking Greek mother, much over- dreseed;Aud the fair Athenea, her flue black eyea looking cloudy and rueful, on the arm of tho German banker,' a cunning-looking, impertinent upstart, with dyed hair aud mustaches. By his Hide waa a little, sleek, obsequious man, whom I found lo be Gulhcim, chelmer' part ner. The mother was Indignant at the interruption of their festivity. The old Arab father tried in vain, by soft words, to mitigate bis wife's auger. Athenea gave Hagan a look that subdued for a moment the storm hat was evidently IhH Hiing. I was Introduced, and we all snt and talked in an uncomfortable way for some time, till at lat Atheneu's mother rose. I think we must now wish j on good evening, Mr. Hagan, she said, iu a sharp, staccato voice, and rejoin our friends whom we so abruptly left. Come, Athenea, take Mr. t-clieliue.'a arm. Athenea gsv S melancholy took al poor Hagan, and ('IF sail, d the party, leaving the old Arab to vainly attempt to console my ludignaut friend. 1 do all I can, my dear boy, for you, groaned the old man; but my wife is en tirely cart led away by thia Geiinxn ras cal, w ho is said to be so enormously rich, and l sought after by every one. Allah, Maahailah! but I have no more power in uiy own bouse than the boy who cleans the boots. Still, count ou me for doing all 1 ean for yon. She has been very rude to you to-uight.I am ashamed of my wifs. 1 sm, indeed. , r- I bad not seeu Hagan for about a week alter this uncomfortable visit, when one afierwjou he rushed iuto my office in a violent afate of eaeiK incut.

If yon tail to do so, A the nea's character will he lost; and you will either be imprisoned or banished. Come, rouse your lietter self. Take her back, fledsd, and so I will, said Hagan, lis. ing with a groan, and shaking my hand with a hear-like strip. Hut blow tScbeb mer to blazes in the name of all that holy. How will you do ii? Hagan, my friend, I' hat is toy secret. You are a brave, honest fellow, I admit; but you are of a communicative and con fiding disposition, and that doesn't suit the busiiiees of my profession, so brush up your dress ooat, and wait aud see. I let mallei s well alone for a fortnight. Iu the meantime, to judge by appearances, the banking linn of Sche:mer& Gulbciin nourished like a green bay tree, chel nier furnished a new house in a tremen dous style, the street close to my office was for days blocked up with huge pier glasses, piano fortes, bales of carpel, costly curtains, carved Indian turnilurc, books aud pictures. His cadaverous fuce was to be seeu al all hours, superintend ing tho moving of Buhl cabinets aud b&ckagel of bid china. Tropical flowers arrived in vast wicker cases; his new sta bles were filled with horses; he skimmed about the city iu a hsndsome phaeton drawn by two cream-colored ponies the present of the Viceroy," as everybody said, though 1 knew that they were had on credit from a newly established Hun garian dealer. I often, as I passed, went up and spoke to my mau or his sneaking little parasite, Gulhcim, and beheld forth to me on tho expensive ways of Alexan dria, and the greediness and fraadnlency of the whole population. A greater set of rascals I never knew, he said once, and 1 treat them according ly; and j et they come round. ,me, licking my boots and praying for more orders, aud as money is of no consequence tome, I gave them more, bacrcd thunder, 1 don't think there is an honest man in all Alexandria! I gave him a quiet look and suggested M. Louis Bonuiva), a French merchant, and ono of his probable fathers-in-law, as eveiy one said. He shook his head, screwed up his eyes, and twisted his dyed mustache. All Ben tuliennui? Athcnca's father. Would sell his own father. M. Reguauld? another father-in-law. Bah notorious. Drummed out of the Algerine army. M. Doiincrwettcr? another future fath. er-in-law. You're joking. What, marry a butter- tub? Mr. John Bli.zird? the fifth futhcr-iii-law. He only b t his tindeiiip. Well, then, M. Castiglione? the sixth falliei-ln-lavv in future. He made no reply for a moment, then he gave me a keen look from bis furtive eyes, aud drew me on one side to a door way, quite apart from the workmen. 1 see, said he, you know more about me than most men do. You are probably in clined to be troublesome, lik.r moot ol your craft, unless you can get more by keeping quiet. Leave me alone to work out my owu buoiuess plans in my own way, and I will give you five hundred pounds English money the day of my marriage with Athenea Ben Sulietnan? Miss Lucy Blizzard? M'llu Louise Keguauld? 1'rau Icin Maria Donnerwetter? or Tat ! Never you mind, whichever lady I select voila. 1 will think over it, I said to myself quietly, without betraying my disgust; bnt you mnst promise to corns and dine with me on Monday next, to meet a few friends, and after dinner we'll get in a corner and settle matters. Cent uu vral bonboume, said Schelmer, .lapping uie iu a friendly way on the back, and open to reasou. Good, mon ami, we nnder-tsnd each other. Au re voir. The game was now spproschirg the last deal.

I touched hitu on his shoulder as he floated about like a great butterfly over a tulip bed, aud asked him to come, and see some sketches by Descamps that 1 had just bought. He professed lo bo a con noisseur, aud said he should be delighted. We passed to tho inner drawing-room, and I threw open tho door. There were the six fathers-in-law, au oddly contraFt ed set of old fogies. M. Botiuival, fut aud round like a mandarin, aud bald as a badger; M. Keguauld, a tall, crane-like old soldier, with long, drooping, white mustaches; Here Donnerwetter, a Ger man, with it'd face, staring eyes, and -tubby black hair; Ali lien yulicinan, a grave Arab, in turban and oriental appli ances; and Mr. John Bliznird, a sturdy, broad chested Englishman, with frank, jovial manner and couiitrytied dress. There was shaking of hands all round' and a round Of local joke's and hearty laughter; eveu Ali Ben bulicman laughed till his turban fell oil'. Schelmer glided iu among them, and, wherever he cume, there the fun broko out afresh, aud every one putted him on the back and lioulrit him as the very pet and flower of Alex andria society. 1 took advantage of a lull in the conversation, and (he crowd" ing round a special gem of the modern Italian school, to set light to tho train. Gentlemen, I said, pointing to M. Schelmer, you perhups do not know the object ol the dinner-party to which 1 have had this day the pleasure of inviting you. I havo asked you to conio to congratulate my dear friend here, and I touched Schelmer ou tho shoulder; he was getting perceptibly paler, our great bunker and financial genius, ou his approaching marriage with Mademoiselle Louise Kcg nauld ou the lOib. Slull"! said Blizzard, flying up; he mar ries my daughter Bessy ou the 1Mb! Homier and blit.ciil stormed Homier, welter, why he marries my beautiful Gretchen on Tuesday week ! i By the beard of the prophet, said Ali Sulieman, gravely, ho has been engaged to my daughter Athenea thesu two mouths! So in successiou stormed and raved the six indignant fathers-in-law, while Schel mer stood there, mule and puralyz 'd, in the sudden storm that had fallen upon his shoulders. You shall fight me, sir, at once, cijiiin, spluttered M Keguauld. Come, send lor sword I draw out all my in'mey to-morrow-all! shouted Huiiiierwetter. Breach of promise, you swindler, swore ; Blizzard, shaking his flat in Schelnier's malign eyes. Breach of promise! screatu- j ed everybody. Anry hands made grabs at his collar; some kicked him ; some pulled him one way, some another. I pressed the crowd back. Gentlemen, 1 said, no violence; perhaps the man car ries arms. This quieted them, and they fell back.

Moat of tho people were glad, but some of the swindlers' accomplices were afraid ol the confessions they might make and I be secrets they might disclose. Every one, pleased or not, wanted to see the two ineu chained to the bear. Not a door or window, from the Custom House lo the Great Square, but was crowded with friends or Iocs of Schelmer and Gulhcim. Tho Arab rabble screamed and snouted at the di-comfittire of the wretches who had robbed the widows and orphans. The delight at the defeat of the 1m posters was great and irrepressible. Tho French ami the Prussian consuls claimed their precious subjects, and Ihe mock trial soon look place, Gulhcim being sentenced to eighteen months and Miclmcr to five years imprisonment. They, however, still had money, and brought such Influ ence to bear, that iu a lew months, some how or other, tho imprisonment was commuted to simple banishment, My friend Hugan was niado happy with bis Athenea.
