and steamer : and if vou were there a
few yeais ayo, you iniht have notic
ed, near the pier, the hero of this nar
alive. He was then a pah:, aliyht
youth of di.xteen, good looking, hut
with the peculiar expression of coun
tenance half resignation, half anxie
ty which belongs to tho blind, lie
was quite blind stone blind, and had
been 3 fiom his birth. Ho had for
about two years played the fiddle at
the corner of a certain ptrcet. Ev
ery morning he was brought to his
ost by an old woman with whom he
odged, or sometimes by a little gill,
her giandchild, who aho brought his
dinner at one o'clock, andfetched him
home to tea nt six. lie never asked
for money, but at his feet lay a small
basket, into which halfpence flowed !
freely. There was a quiet.uu-
complaining manner aooiu nun ; 110 1
was so neat and clean, that 111 the I
neighborhood he was a favoiite, and j
all stiaiigcrs admired him. llut what
was curious and pleasant to seo was I
the rospcet shown him by all the sai
lors, watctmaii, and old college men.
Though hu could not see, they always
touched their hats to him, and said

ning or good evening. Hut then
Blind Walter was the son of a captain
in the myal navy, who had left him
without a father at six years old. lie
had had a mother, but Fho was what
is rarely found in this woild, as I dare
say you all know a bad mother ; and
that is the worst thing that can full to
tho lot of a child. She was not what
the world calls wicked, but she was so
really. She neglected her blind boy;
she let him pick up his education how
he could ; nnd but for the kindness of
an old musician, who took a fancy to
him. and when his mother was out
fetched him to his house, he would
havt known nothing.
The musician wta a poor old Ital-.
iar., a gentleman in his habits and
feelings ; and he taught tho boy to
speak Italian, to be tidy and clean,
and to ylay tho wliu. Walter be
came passionately fond of mnslc,whic!i

rather warmed her Teolings towards
her child. She had him more neatly
