I knew was honoruble and good, that he possessed enough of worldly goods to satisfy every reasonable wish, aud I looked forward my uuiou with him, with all the bright an ticipations of a heart which has loved the nrst time. He told me of her he had loved and lost, of that hour when gazing upon the marble features of bis worshiped wite as she lay the repose of death. He hud deemed that no earthly affectoin could ever warm crushed heart more, but time bad brought healing on his wings. 1 lit; innocent prattle of his motherless child wou him from grief ; he delighted to truce iu her unfold ing beauty, the image of her mother.

Scarcely emancipated from the school-room, I was profoundly ignorant of the detail of house keeping, and had already mudo my husband aware of the fact. Hut his loving smile and kind words of encouragement ban ished all fear at the time, particularly as he assured me that I could always retain Wil son, if I liked her. As we drove to the door of tbe mansion, I was in ml aware tlutt it stood npou one of the principal streets, and was a very handsome and imposing residence. . In the hull some half-dozen servants were runged to receive us, who crowded around my bus- band with every demonstration of affection. M. a. Iw he to for in his his the one the the Left and dis trustful, had wheu snd traiu joy. tbe car rest mo the was The housekeeper stood at the door of the parlor, in oil the state of silk gown, anu high crowned cup, while her reception of me was Ireezingly ditrniued. I felt mui i was an unwelcome mistress, and that she did not like that another should occupy her place as head of the establishment. But this did not affect me, for a large company of friends and acquaintances of my husband were assembled to congratulate us, aud soon the rpucions rooms echoed with light, luughter, und merry words. From the first I had been impatient' to behold my step-daughter, who had now at tained the age of teu yeurs, mid who I noticed was not in the drawing-room. Up on enquiry, she was found to be iu own room, und a servant was sent to require her presence. Her father took her fondly to hi6 arms, and directing her attention to uie, Said : "This lady is now your mama, will yon not kiss her? she will love you very much. my bird," and led her to me. I drew her to my bosom aud kissed tier downy cheek, but the child seemed to shrink from my embrace, her lurge brown eyes scanned my face and figure, and as they glanced upward into my own, sue said in a hulf audible tone, "My mama is iu heaven. A puug shot through my heart, my eyes filled, for I could perceive that no one hud spoken kindly of uie to her, or bade her love me for her father's sake. Hub htiouid have been Wilson's course, but she hod not done i'. thouirh knowing of my husband's intended marriage mouths before 1 could not answer Edoliue then, and her father failing to make her at all sociable, took my ai m and led me to the refreshment room, where everything which could please the taste of the most fastideous, was diS' ployed. Edoline was seated at her father's side, and nothing could exceed the winning mauuer she exhibited toward lain; but from the first, she regarded me with dislike, as was evident by her penetrating side-long glunce8,which revealed her feelings as plain ly os words rould have done. In the round of visits, and con stunt reception of company, which followed mv marriage, I had little time to cultivate a better rtate of things : but as those en gagements decreased, I strove to win the love of the little maiden, and sometimes Haltered myself that 1 had succeeded ; but ere louir. was forced to acknowledge that my emlcuvois had signally failed. As time sped on, I redoubled my efforts to interest und amuse this impracticable child, lukingher with me wheu 1 walked or rode, aud to witness any novel and attract ive exhibition which offered, and by every iud'ilgciit arl strove to gam a place in her affections. But although, ever polite and obetl eut, there was no soul in the rendering, but the suine cold impassive manner through out. Her lamer dcploreu uie ueuriug oi his child toward uie, und with tiuest affec tion endeavored tosofien my disappoint ment, which at limes, 1 felt deeply. When Edoline was fifteen, a circumstance occurred, which opened my eyes to the citu.ie of this coldness. She was very uux iotis to give a party upon ber birthday, aud consent was ot course given, for her tut her as well as myself delighted to gratify her. Edoline hud an abundance of dresses of every color aud fabric, but she protested she must have a new oue, and an expensive one too, as it would bo shockingly unfash ionable to wear a robe that had been worn before. I objected to that, as a needless ex pense, urging that as she was growing tal ler every duy, it was a pily to waste so many dresses. Edoline was deeply offended and Ictt the room muttering her Uissalisfuc tiou. Having occasion an hour afterward to enter the housekeeper's room to order dinner, I did not find her there, but pass ing Edoline's apartment, distinguished both their voices iu conversation. The loudness of their tones caused me to listen, when I heard my mime mentioned by Wilton, in a manner which certainly was far from flat tering. "Yoi see, (said this woman,) my darling Edoline, she is jealous o! your superior beauty, and docs uot let you have the dress because the knows you will look so much betler limn she does. Oh I hale her baby face, und those long curls flapping around like so muuy snakes. Dou't ever expect to be happy, w hile you live wilh her ; but pre sently you will marry some splendid young fellow who will take you wuere you will no onger be abused by a step-mother. Your father is such a fool as to be taken iu by her, and he dou't care a fig for his only child. O, if your own mother wus alive, how different it would be. , 1 kuew it. I always told you not to believe auy of her blarny, aud you dou't. You hate her just as I do." Since thai is tue case, Aim. Wilson said, stepping into the door, you shall uot be obliged to stay wit'i me. Just get ready to leave to day. As tor you, ivloline now sec tbe causa of your decided disliku to me a .. were scru She ana she so my a nun it l.n i.njuil.lM 1,u I r I vu, w wmuv a uaio iui so many years tiurbored this creature instil into your youug heart her deadly poison ? 1 sanK into a cuair, ami tears ot bitter anguish fell from uiy eyes. The house keeper and Edoliuo both had left me, and as I mused sadly upon the past, I felt that tbu good sued 1 bad hoped to sow in mind of Edoline, had indeed fallen upon stony ground. My husband was very much enraged at Wilson for her duplicity criminal conduct, for iu no other tight could be view it, Ue sent for her to the parlor and afier repruiuaudiiig ber .evenly, dis missed her from his service. That done, the uext thiug to be cousidured was best course to pernio with Edoline, w chose to display much grief at tbu depart ure of Wilaou. kHcr father decided to send her immediately to a Seminary, located in village not many miles distant, and the preparations were at ouco commenced for her departure. Edoline said little, but she assumed the air of a martyr, sighed greivously, and answered me only in monosylublux, when I addressed her. With her father she was scarcely more sociable, and her dark mourn ful eyes Bent reproachful glances into his, which, I doubt not, were intended to soften his obdurate heart, and lead him to recall Wilson, a favor which she had entreated of him in vain. My efforts to conciliate the licensed girl were haughtily rejected, und was obliged to desist, feeling that the time had not yet arrived when she should earn that I only sought her highest good. when she deemed me most unkind. I look ed for some littlo token of regird when her lather came to lead her to the carnaire. w hich was to convey her to L ; but as extended my hand to her with words of tender farewell, she brushed rudely past me, aud takiitar her father's arm silently eft the house. As my husband looked at me, 1 read such sorrow and concern for me iu his glance, that my own feelings were eu- ircly engiossed by him, fori kuew he felt most deeply the unkind behaviour of Edo- ine. But a firm belief that after the night, morning would dawn, and that I should reap the reward of well doing, sustained me, and I met my husband when he return ed at night w ith a cheerful heart and coun tenance. And as he folded me to his breast with words of praise, so dear to the heart of a wile, I took courage for the future, ami thanked God for his blessings. Ldoluie often wrote to her father after her entrance to L Seminary, but never mentioned my name. She expressed her self as very happy there, and near the close of the term, asked permission to spend (lie vacation with her room-mate, Miss Nellie Siut-lair. This was granted, and so she did not return to her home. CHAPTER II. We sat at breakfast, some two or three weeks after the commencement of the fall term at L Seiuiuary, when a servant entered with the letters. My husband rrlauced over them, and tossiuz those ud- dressed to me into my lap, said, " Here js one from L , it is not in Edy's hand writing. Pray, heaven, she is not ill," and he hastily began its perusal A flush mantled his usually pule face us he read, and thcu he silently placed it before me. Its contents were as follows, and filled us wilh the most painful surprise. MR. WALTER HAMILTON. Dear Sir We are antler the disagreeable uecessity of acquainting you wilh circumstance deeply utlectiiig yoar tluugliters welfare, and trust that our unxiet for her trood will, plead as excuse for thus at di easing you. During her visit at tbu house of Mr, Sinclair, through vacation, she made tue acquaintance of his son, a young muu notorious ly profligate, and totully unworthy her regard. Since her return to school, ' we are pained to learn that she bus corresponded with him, and in une instance, met him at the house of a neigh bor. Yon of course will know best the method to puisue under the circumstances, and may re ly upon any assistance needed, from yuur Most Obedient Servants, MR. and MRS. OLDFEILD, Principals. I looked at my husbiinl iu silence, he seemed in deep thought, but rose almost immediately, aud rang for a servant. "Desire John to harness a horse and bring it around iu fifteen minu'es." "Will you have ihe chaise, sir ?" "Yes, aud be quick." "We must bring her home.Meta," he said, turning to me, "und this day too." And he sank down upon the sofa, with his head bowed upon his breast. I did not attempt to converse with him then, but quietly sat by his side until John announced "carriage waiting, sir," wheu he rose to depart. ' Have Edy's room warm, darling, for it will be evening when we come." He kissed me. aud was gone. The clock was striking ten as they drove to the door, and I hastened to meet them. Edoline murmercd a low answer to my greeting, I could not tell what it was. She stood before tho grate and warmed Herself, then rang the bell for a servant. " Jaue, is there a fire in my own room?"

Hamilton. Xllio nus nuui taavu w me. We sat lute that night talking sadly of that child of our love. Sho had begged not to be taken home, and when told by her father that his resolve was unalterable, had giveu away to a passion of tears. Xouug feiuclair was a dangerous man handsome in person, and of fascinating manners, but utterly destitute of principle. The beauty of Edoline had attracted him, and learning that she was Heiress to a ijtige properly, aud an only child, thought to wed ber, aud so recruit ins own lonuue, uuu bad suffered by his profligate career. His sister aud mother entered heartily iuto his schemes, and Edoline's stay at their house was made as agreeable as possible. It was not strango that the young heart of the innocent girl yielded to their mani fold temptations, nor that ere her visit curae to a close, she had learned to love Ernest Sinclair. But she must not be pemiuted to make herself miserable, and how should we undo the mischief already wrought? We decided to iBvite some young cousins living io Philadelphia to spend a few montiis nd also to permit ner to miugio villi her. a .- I :.. k.,iuin, that aiiinii uuobioO' " IliOt u iii euciuiy, Iti'inof - " to the the ho lionable uttutbaient might eradicate mai, which could only bring uuhappiness. During tbe week which imerveued before (he arrival of the iuviled guests, Edoliue spent most of her time in her own room. Her denortment was sullen, cvinciug to- wurd me a feeling of intense dislike. Her affectionate playfulness toward her father had given place toeolduess and reservo, in addition to taking ber from her lover, hod eiacted a promise that she would uever write to him ogaiu. Doubtless she classed herself with those unloriuuaie maiuena, ue lined to die victims to a cruel pureul's caprice, for she seemed determiued Dot, survive Joug, but to mwpe aud starve herself. A il iTns was very tryinwr. but 1 endeavor- " - . 7 . dlo possess my soul in patience. Finally the cousin arrtrtd. .. tan, ohuusuiiii young fellows, bringing with them their sister, one of the lovlieit girls I ever saw. Now succeeded parties, drives, walks, visits to the sea shore, and every picturesque place In the neighborhood. Edoline seem ed happy, she even relaxed in her hnnghty reserve, and treated me with some degree of friendliness. Again she romped and danced with her father, who never seemed happier thun now. Two monihs passed swiftly by. The Holidays were approaching ; the cousins departed homeward, but other gnosis were soon expected. Edoline was apparently pleased wilh this aud joined wilh me in the arrangements for a season of enjoyment, in which the whole household should purli cipaie. The day before Christmrsthe house would be tilled wilh visitors who were to remain during the festive season, Every room was in complete order, aud only oue week iutet vened before they were to receive their gay inhabitants. Edoline was dressing to make some calls and I sat down to write to her father, who wus temporarily absent. I did not hcur her go out, and after finish ing my letter thought that I would ascer tain if she had gone. As I ascended the stairs I saw nearly at the top a letter lying, and picking it up glanced at the superscript on. the hand writing was evidently that of a gentleman, and uukuown to me. A suspicion darted into my mind which made my heart sink. X bud no right to open her letters, but O, how could 1 help it ? I sought my chamber, and sinking upon a scut opened it wilh trembling bauds. Il was dated the day previous, aud must have been received that morning. At the bot tom was the writers imtiio, and that name was Sinclair. As I realized that Edoliue was still iu communication wilh a muu, with whom she had promised her father to dis card, a pang of exquisite grief filled my heart aud it was some moments before 1 could compose myself sufficiently to read tue letter. 11 was as follows. Dearest Edoline : For such you must ever be, although yon persist in denying me the hap piness of beholding you. Why will you sailer the cold policy of your father to influence you? He believes I am influenced by mercenary mo tives in addressint; you, but you know my heart, aud that I love you wilh an iutese ulfoction such us I never felt for any other woman. But I cannot endure this separation longer. I en treat you to meet me to-night, and O, Edoline, let us meet never to separate more. I will have a carriage waiting at twelve a few doors below your own residence which shall convey us be yond persuit, and then Hymen shall bind to gether irrevocably two hearts, created for each other. Edoline should you refuse me hut cannot reflect upon such a possibility. Wilb thee, life presents to iny imagination the height of huifmn felicity. ' Without thee, it will be curse. On you rests my happiness or miseiy. Your lather wheu we uie once married, will for give you, and as sooti us the cerumony is per formed we will hasten to him, and implore his pardon. Yon have no mother, but in mine you will find a most tender parent. Hasten the an swer which shitll relieve my saspence, and O, Edoline let il be favorable. Your devoted Sinclair. ; for be to ,, Depressed beyond measure, I knew uot what to do. My hu-bund would not re turn until S.i'u:div. This was Wednesday, aud that very night perhaps his daughter would leiive her home forever. Dut no, she should uot, I would prevent it. Rut how ? if she was determined to go. Rut, perhaps, Edoliue would reject with scorn this til tempt to lead her iuto u disobedience so terrible. I inii-t wait and see. I paced the fl ior in a stute of feeling impossible describe. Oil for counsel how to net, but I could not ii-k il of hiieiiii"S. Edoline must not be compromised. She returned eurlv and as she joined meat the tea ta ble, I looked in vain for any evidence ugitation, or indecision in her manner. She was calm, cheerful, sell-contained. A conversed with her I became reassured. She will not go, I said. She certainly hat rejected the cowardly villain who dare uot ask her hand of her father, but would eteul her away under cover of the darkuess. But when the hour for retiring came I ft that I must uot sleep, too much was at stake I sat iu the library reading or attempting read, yet sturtiug at every sound. The great clock iu tlie ball tolled the hour midnight, was it fancy, or was Ed Hue mov ing about her room ? Alas it was too true. With stealthy tread I heard her de scending the stairs, pausing a? if to lUteti at every step. I hud taken the key from the lock and ss Edoline turned in dismay from the door. 1 stood before her. was dressed iu a traveling suit aud held her baud a littlo casket which contained the jewels once her mother's, but now own. To describe the expression of her coun tenance upon seeing me is impossible. Huge and shame were mingled iu the glance which she raised to my face. Edoline I said a are you hero at this hour of the night She did not answer at once, but seemed thinking deeply, and when she did it iu u mat ner of which I had not dreamed her capable. " You ak mo why I am here, as if did not know it all. You think to prevent my going I suppose ? Oive me the key this door, Mrs. Hamilton, for I v)dl go I tro to gel a way from you, who are bune of my life. Let mo go." Edoline listen tome oulv for one moment. Will you f jrsake your father for a villain "It Is false, he Is govid aud noble. shall uot part us. Give me the key or will raise the house." She placed her hand upon my arm, shak ing with passion from head to fool. suddenly her bold relaxed, a livid paleness overspreud her face and wilh a low she sank at my feet iu a dead faint. Silent ly I lifted her slight form iu my arms bore her to a sofa, and theu rang the for my own maid. When sho came we Edoliue to her owu room, but ii long before our united efforts restored to life. Then her souses were wuudcriug, aud wheu morning dawued, a physical! her iu a bruin fover. . 1 enj'Wtied opoo.

Her heart had been steeled against me, and looking upon me as an ene my in disguise, she hsd the more readily listened to the addresses of Sinclair, whose polished exterior, might have fusciuatcd an older ierson limn Edoline. I watched over her with the most intense anxiety un til the arrival of her father, and then his warm commendation of my conrse, and heartfelt pleasure that his child was saved from certain misery was a sweet recompense for my care. Long days and uighls were passed in that sick room, sre its p.ile in mate was conscious, except at brief Iutet' vuls, and tho gny company w ho were ex peeled, received uoiice of ber dangerous illness, and the silence of sorrow and sick ness reigned in the merry Holidays. I hud passed the night by her side, aud as the grey dawn appeared, her father entered to relieve my vigil We stood looking upon her wasted form and as I lifted a disheveled mass of hair from her forehead, she sudden Iv onened her eves. Looking steadily at me for some moments, as if trying to re call some thing to her mind. Passing In r hand several times across her eyes as if her tisiou was imuerfcut. she whispered, "is it mother ?" I started. It was the first time she had called ine thus. I bent over her. Yes, Edy, your mother who is thankful to God that yon are still spared to her. "Where is papa ?" hhe asked looking around. He bcul forward aud kissed her pule cheek. "Do you think she will over forgive tny wicked abuse of her love V "Indited she will, darling, look at her." Edoline rai-cd her eyes to my face, down which the tears of gratitude and thanks giving were stealing, and lifting her arms with difficulty to iny neck, drew my face to hcr. "My mother ! my mart than mother 1" a' e murmured, kissing me. Long years huve ptss'd si ico th it hip py morning, yet tho remembrance is sweet. One morning after Edoline was well enough to be corried down below, her father enter ed with a paper in his hand. Sitting dowu by her he said tenderly. "My dear daughter, there is something in this paper which I wish yon to see, but diead to give you pain. It concerns one Sinclair. Can you bear to learn the con firmation of what I have told you concern ing his character ?" Edoline wus much affected but con! roll ed herself bravely. ' Read my "father" she said ia a low voice, and he read. ; We are puiued to learn that a gentleman who has moved in the highest circles, and who is tbe son of one of our most respect ed citizens, has been arrested upon a charge of forgery to a large amount. The affair is undergoing a judicial investigation, and we earnestly hope the young man may prove innocent. L. Democrat. Since the above was written we have learned that Ernest Siuclar has been fully committed for trial. There was long silence broken at last by my husband. "Cm yon not, hank God for your escape, my Edoline ?" She raised her eyes devoutly, aud on Rwered. "From my heart of hearts, dearest fa ther and mother," she added turning her tearful eyes noon me. From that hour the name of Sinclair never passed her lips Tho conviction that he was utterly uuwortliy, helped to banish him from her heart and mind. From that time Edoline has been the most affection ute of daughters, and ever attributes her unjust conduct . toward me, to Wilsou's teachings who had instilled the belief that Stepmothers were invariably heartless and cruel, and that their profess on of love for the children committed to their care, were onlf intended to blind the husband's eyes. Edoline is now the wife of a distinguish ed divine, an or .lament a delight to the high station which she is called to fill.' Often as we converse of the past, she sheds happy tears at the recollection of what she oart called my cruelty, but which now she kmws was my love for her.

Self-Respect--Talk with Young Ladies. is a be of be ul be ai the The ; ul have has ladtj mop o .' Self respect is a conservative quality, ai.d ') is indispensable to the preservation of char- , a acter Says one, speaking of young men,, "He who cares not what others think of ' him, is half ruined." The remark is . true, mid applies w ith more force to young ladies than it does to yonng men. 2sot that ef-.' ; ther sex should seek the approbation of : J others for its own sake alone, for this would' ' be ambitious pride and vain-glory, instead of self-respect. This latter quality is That, judicious regard for ouc's principles and' practice, which is necessary to maiutuiu aa unspotted character. Young men who-5 huve it not, become reckless, abandoned profligate. They make haste to ruin.-.; i Isow, self-respect is more valuable to a young lady, because her character is a more ; delicate fabric. Au act that will scurcely have a-stain upon the reputation of a young man, will blast a young lady's character iu the public view. Society is so construct- ' ed by the Great Architect, that female chumcter cannot withstand so hard a shock as that of the male sex. . It is well that it is so, as we might show, if this were the place. Il gives woman a moral position and influence, that teud to elevate uud re fine the sterner sex. It follows, of course, that a young lady cau not mix indiscriminately in society, and join iu all tho amusements and frivolities of the day, without running more or less risk. Excess of interest eveu in iiviocenl pleasures will evince a degree lightness that will prove injurious. Making little or do dis tinction between the kinds of amusements enjoyed, will lead to similar results. The inference will be, among discriminating ob servers, that "a good time" is valued more highly than good principles', and this will depreciate the character at once, la like manner, w hen a young lady accepts tbe at tentions of almost auy young man who omes along, to escort her to concerts, par- ics of pleasure, bulls, aud ether places, sho lowers herself iu public estimation. She tows that character Is a secondary consid eration w ith her, ut least when she is drawn by the fascmatious of social pleasure. Here is a lack of self-respect an absence of that ! jealous regard for ber reputation and lunu-- uuce, without which she will lose caste witu he best part of society. She caunot ex-. t i peel to suare me goou opinion ana , couu- euce of others, uulesg she studies more lu merit the same.
