" At last I have it," said a silvery voice,
snd a sweet face glad and brilliant, bright

j 44 Only see. mother! ten dollars, nil my

Tear? tremMed on the widow's laches, and
glittered on her pale cheek 44 It is to be the

thought. *'Istho canker worm at the fceirt

Eva knelt at her mother's feet, where she
had fallen with all tho aband u of a child,
her glrncp fastened to the shijujg gold.
Lifting her glance she met tirat of her mc
; full of anxiety, touched with sorrow.
A sudden smile broko over her delicate fea

At first tie pempous servant e.ilcd a con

'a a ps sal tent J by her childish simplicity an I
? inning blue eyes, be Jeemr?d i: i>est not to
de:.y her urg ;cy ; she entered this palace of
a rich man's h. ruo
Softly her feet sank in the luxurious hell 1

all the way to the staircase 'iThc sp'eni. r of
Sl e room iuto which *he was adhered seexel

'? Well, y< ung lady," said he blandly
I?: g " to nh< in am I indebted for ihis plea

?4 My father, sir," uied in your debt," said
i'ra blushingly. speaking very softly 44 By
the strictest economy and very hard work. we.
my mother and I, have been able to pay all
his creditors but yourself If yoa will be
kind enough to rcceivo the balance <>f your
account in small sums?I am sorry th? y must
be ?o small, sir?wo can in the courso cf a very
few years fully liquidate the debt, ami then
we shall have fulfilled my father's dy* ng wish,
that every stain might le wiped fr<m hi.r
honor " Sh? paused a moment, and said I
again falterngly, ' My father was very un- i
fortunate, eir, and broken in health for Many
years, but, eir, he was honorable, he \*ould I
have pft'd the lust cent if it had left 'aim a ,
beggar "
Mr Miner sat awhile thoughtfully, hie dark
fastened upon the gentle face before him
Alter a moment of silence, he rui-cd his iei d, '
threw back the mass of curling hair that
shadowed his handsome brow, and faid :
44I remember your father well. I regretted
his death. He was a fine fellow?a fioe fel
low," he added musingly; 4'but, my dear
yourg lady, have you tho means?do yr>a
not embarrass yourself by making the?e pay

Eva blushed again, and looking up, ingeu- ]
U"u>ly replied, " I am obliged to work, tir. i
but no labor would bo too arduous that might
save the memory of sucJi a father from dis- !
grace."
ibis she spoke with deep emotion. The
rich man turned with a ehokirg in his throat,
iud tears glistened on his lashes. Eva tim
idly held out the two gold pieces; Lo to>k
them, and bidding her "lay r. moment, luutily
left the room.
A'mo.-t instantly returning ho handed her a
sealed note, saying, 44 There is iha receipt
young lsdy, and allow me to add, that the
mother of such a child must be a happy woman.
The whole debt, I find, is nino hundred and
seventy-five dollar- You will see by my note
what arrangements I have m*de; and 1 L'^pe
they will bo satisfactory "
Eva left him with a lighter heart, and a
burning cheek at bis praise. IIis manuer
was gentle, so fatherly that she felt he would
not impose hard conditions, and it wou:d be a
pleasure to pay one so kind and forbearing
At last she got home, and breathlessly sit
ting at her mother's feet, she opened her letter.
Wonder of wonders?a bank note inclosed; she
held it without speaking, or looking at its
value
4* Kead it," she said, after a moment's be
wilderment, placing tho letter in her mother's
hand?4' here are fifty dollars ; what can it
mean ?"
''This," sail the sick woman, bursting into
tears. 4,is a receipt in full, releasing you from
the payment of your father's debt. Kind gen
erous man?Ileaven will bless him ?Uod will
shower mercies upon him From a grateful
heart I call upon the Fa'hcr to reward him
for this act of kindness. Oh ! what shall wo
say, what shall we do to thank him ' '
"Mothur," said Eva. smiling through her
tears. 4* I felt as if he was an angel of go;.d
ucss. Oh, they do wrong, who eay ihi.t tli
who nre woaltLy have hard hearts Mother
can it be possible we are so rich ? I wish ho
knew how very happy he has made us, how
much wu love and reverence him whenever
ffj think or speak of him, or even hear hiia
spoken of!"
1 He has bound two hearts to him forever,"
murmured her mother.
44 Yes, dear Mr. Miner! little he thought
how many comforts we wanted. Now we need
not stint the fire; wo may buy coal, and have
ono cheerful blaze, please God And the tea,
the strip of carpet, the sugar, the little luxu
tics lor yju, dear mother ; and the time, and
a very lew books for myself I declare i in
so thankful, I feel as if 1 ought to go right
back and tell him that we shall love him so
long as we live "

Ambkica* Actors is England ?It ia ofteu
said that an American artist stands a poor
chance with the press and publio of Englaud.
The xollowiug editorial affords at leaet one ex
ception to the rule:
Mr James E Murdoch made his fint ap
pearance before a London audience at the
H-iymarket theatre, oa the 23d September, as
young Mirabrl, in the ** Inconstant. ' The
^ thu 231 eajs ut him : "The more im
i..eii.iU) reason for the revival of the 44 In
constant' jurt now. hm been to introduce an
American actor, of acknowledged fame, for
tne lirst time to a London audience Mr.
Murdoch, we learn from a u memoir'' which
has been published, has graduated in everv
d ju; in of the stage, and has been successful
in e;:eh That hu is an artist as well as an
ujtor is evident, but a certain heavinesa of
voice, and unpleasant inelastic atyle of man
ner, would seem to naturally unfit him fur
such a part as Mir.tbel. the gay, reckless rake,
whose animal passions and hilarity arc ch.etly
?n the a.'eeudant, and represents the tyj^ of
which Elliston at.d Charles Kemble were the
iQost finished exponents
Hence it was, in the last scene?that in
which the " Inconstant'' hero finds himself in
the deadly grasp of the bagnio bnllief, and
only relcs^Ofc himself by his presenoe of mind
and assumption of pleasantry and vivacity ?
that he was the most suocecsful. We have
Pel Join witnessed anything better than his de
lineation of hysterical joy when the taldiert
arrive, and his torced effort to appear uncon
cerned. Nothing abler could have been
wished for; aud it brought the curtain down
in triumph. Mr Murdoch was recalled with
enthusiasm ; for the impression that he had
made upon the spectators was undoubtedly
real. Nevertheless we shall be glad to see
him in other parts?parts of more essential
weight and gravity, wherein we conceive he
is more likely to shine?before we join In the
verdict of satisfaction which the public last
night so unequivocally expressed.
