With a very f retty smile (which I after wards discovered bad mora meaning in it than 1 was at the time aware ol,) he feared lie could not have the pleasure of partaking of the hospitalities of my table, but. with my permission, he would wait till the ap pointed hour which was then near at hand. Our conversation was resumed; and presently he asked my iittle ones to go to biui. They obeyed at once, albeit tbey ere ratbey shy children. This satisfied rue that the stranger wax one of kind and and gent'e disposition. He took the chil dren, seated them on his kneea, and began to tell thetu a fairy story (evidently of his own invention and extemporized), to which they listened with profound attention. In deed, I could Dot help being interested in tho story, so fanciful were the ideas, and so poetical the language in which they were exposed. " The story ended, the stranger replaced the children on the carpet, and approached tbetlbls on which stood; in a porcelain vase, a boqoet flowers. These he admired, and began a discourse on Horticulture. 1 listened with intense earnestness, so pro- found were all his observations. We were etauUing at the table lor at least eight or ten minutes ; my boys banging on the skirt of my dress, and every now and then compelling me ta beg t f them to be silent. " One. o'clock came, but not the Major. I received, however, a note from him, writ ten in pencil on a slip of paper lie would be detained at the tijterDment House until half past two. "Again I requested the fascinating stranger to partake of luncheon, which was ' '!rm ",n ,l,e wllole couise of my profes now on the tal.ln in th e.m . .nA i sional career. with the same winning smile, ca declined. As he was about, es I thought, to depart, I extended my bund; but, to my astonish ment, be stepred back, made a low bow, and declined taking it. " For a geotleman to have his hand re fused when be extends it to another is rm berrHssing enough. But for a lady! Who can powibly describe what were my feel ings), Had be been the beir to the British throne, visiting the penal settlement in disguise, (and from the stranger's tnanners and conversation be might have been that illustrious pers' Dage,) he could scarcely have, under the circumstances, treated me in such an extraordinary manner. I ' SParpplw IrriAW whut tit think- flliaArelnit as the stranger must have done, the blood rush to my cheeks, being cognizant, evr dently, of what was pushing through my mind, he spoke an follows; " '.Madam. I am airaid vou will never ! f.rgive me the liberty I hate 'taken a! ready. But the tru'h is. the passiou sud denly atole over uie, and I could not resist the irmr.tath.il or satisfying myself that the skill vtliich made me ao conspicuous in the mother country still remained to me ia this conviot land.' " I stared at bim but did not speak. " 'Madam,' he continued, 'the penalty of sitting at the table with yorj, or taking the hand you paid me the compliment to prof fer me yourself in ignorance of the fact I am about to disclose would have been the forfeiture of try ticket of leue, a hundred lushes, and employment on th road in irons. As it is. I dread ths Major's wrath; but I cherish a hope that you will endeavor to appease it. if your advoency he only a return fr the brief amusement I afforded your benutiful children ' "You are a convict?' I said, indignant ly, my hand on the bell rope. "Madum,' he said, with an expression of countenance which moved me to pity, in spite of indignation, ' hear me one mo ment.' ' A convietcd felon, how dared you en ter my drawing room as a visitor?' 1 asked, my an per apain getting the better cfall my other feelings. " The Major, madam,' said the stranger, 'requested me to be at at his house at the hour when I presented myself; and he bad.9 me wnit if he were from home when 1 culled. The Major vti.nfies to know who 'was the pfcrsr.n wha received from ine a "diamond necklace which belonged to the ': Marchioness of Dorrington, and came into j my possession at a state ball gome four or : five yenrs ago a slate boll at which 1 had the honor of being present. Xow, madam, when the orderly who opened the front j door informed me that tho Major was not at borne, but that ynu were, that indamita l)le impudence which so often carried me ' into the drawing rooms nf the arist-cracy of oar country, took possession of nie; and ! warmed as I was with generous wine I jnst sufficiently to give me courage I de. termmed to tread once more on a lady's carpet, and enter into conversation with her. That much I felt the Major would forgive me ; and therefore I requested the orderly to announce a gentleman. Indeed, madam, I shall make the forgiveness of the liberties I have taken in this room the con dition of my giving that information which shall restore to the Marchioness of Dor rington the gem of which I deprived her a gem which is still unpledged, and in the possession of one who will restore it on ap plication, accompanied by a letter io my handwiiiing.' " Again I kept silence. " 'Madam '.' he exclaimed, somewhat im paasionedly, and rather proudly, I am no other man tliio Iiarringtoc, the illustrious pickpocket ; and this it the hand which in its day has gently plucked from ladies of rank and wealth, jewels which realized in all upwards of thirty-6ve thousand pounds, irrespective of thosa which werein my pos sessi n under lock ur.d key, when fortune turned her baek upon me,' " fSarrin-t n, the pickpocket ! Having henr so much of this man and his exploits (although, of course, I had never seen him,) 1 could not help regarding him with curmHity, ro muc be atl. w" ' .hl ro much 8) tuat 1 could scarcely with him any longer.

' 'I do rot understamfyou, Mr. Barring ton,' I replied. (I could not help saying Mistrr.) " 'But you will, madjm, in one moment. Where are your keys?' "I felt in my pocket, in which 1 fancied they were, and discovered thut they were gone. "And your thimble and pencil case, at d your smelling salts? Tbey are hsre!

"'A!i. m.i'jjtu,' he" sighed, 'such ia the cii ioge th it comes over the aXiirs of men 1 Th-r.' wus a time when the ladies boasted of hiving breu roLbed by Buiiington Many wliom h id neier robbed gave it rut that I had d tie so ; singly that they mijht be tiilked about.

' iarringtori has my diamond earrings !' once exclaimed (be old Counts of KettUbnnk, elusping her hands. Her ladyship's statement was not true. Her diamonds were pavtc, and she knew it, and caused them t be returned to her. Had yon not a pair of very small pearl drops in your ears this mornitio, madam?' "I placed my hand.-i on my ears, and di cr.vered that the drops were gone. Again mr soger returned, and I said: "'How dared you, sir, place your fingers on my face?' " 'Upon my sacred word and hor.or, mad am,' he replied, placing his hand over his left breast and bowing, ' I did nothing of the kind! The ear is the most senitive part of the human body to the touch of another person. Had I touched your ear my hone of having these drops in my waist coat pocket would have been gone. It was the springs only that 1 touched, snd the drops fell into the palm of toy left hand.' He placed the earrings on the table, and made me a very low bow. " 'And when did you depiive me of them?' I asked him. "When I was discoursicz on Horticul ture, jou bad occasion several times to in cline your head towards your charming children, and gently reprove them fur in terrupting me. It was ou cne of those oc casions that the deed was quickly done. The dear children were the unconscious confederates in. my crime if crime you still cns der it wince I have told y. hi, and I Fpoke the truth, that it waa not for the sake of gain, but simply to sntiWy a passion ate' etiriosity. It was as delicate and as uimcuit so operation as r.ny l ever per ' There waa a peculiar qnair.tnass of humor and of action thrown into this sneech ; I could not refrain from laughing But, to tny great satisfaction, the illustrious pickpocket did not join in tl.e laugh. He regarded me with n look of extrrm? humi1 ity, and maintained a rrspectaUe silence, which was shortly broken by a loud knock ing at the outer d.Hir. It wa. the Major, who suddenly remembering his appoint ment with Barrington, had contrived to make bis escape from Government House, in order to keepjt. The Major seemed rather surprised t" find Barrington in my drawing room ; but he was in such a hurry, am so anxious, that he said nothing on the subject. " I withdrew to the passage, whence I conld overhear all that took place " 'Xuw, I 'k here, Barrington,' said my husband, impetuously, I will have no more nonsense. As for a tree pardon, or even a conditional pardon, at present it :s out of the question. In getting you a ticket of leave I have done all that I pussibiy can ; nnd as I am a living man, I give you fair warning that it you do not keep faitb witb me, I will undo what I have already done. A free pardon! What? Let you loose upon the society of England again t The colonial secretary would" scout tbe idea, nn ! JOLIET; ILLIK and severely censure tbe governor for rec- t . om mend ine such a thins. You know, asi well bb I do. that if Ton returned to Ene r land to-morrow, and had an income of five thousand a "year, ynu would never be able to keep those fingers of yours quiet.' 'Well, I think you are right, Major,' aaid the illustrious personage. "Then you will write that letter -at vnew?' . " " i 'l will. Bat on one condition.' " 'Another condition T' "Yes Well, what is that condition? Ton have so many conditions that I begin tc think the necklace will not be forthcoming" after all. And if it be not, by ' 'Do not excite yourself to angev, Major. I give you my honor ' "Your honor! Nonsenae ! What want is the jewel restored to its owner.' ' 'And it shall be, on condition that yeu shall not be offended, grievously of- fended, with me for what I have done this dayT .- " - 'What is thatr "'Summon your good wife, and let Tier be witness both for and HgaTfrsf Me""5'' " My husband opened the drawing room door and called out " 'Bessie !' " As soon as I had made my appearance Barrington stated the case all that had transpired with minute accuracy ; nay, more, he acted the entire scene in such a way that it became a little romedy in itself; the -characters being himself, myself, and the children, all of which character ho represeiited with such humor that my hus band and myself were several times in fits of laughter. Barrington, however, did not smile. He affected to regard the little dra ma (and that made it the mure amusing) as a very serious business. " This play over, my husband again put to Barrington the question: ' Will you write the letter at once ?'

Among tbe immediate descendants of these families were six young ladies, who prided themselves on being par excellence, the aristocracy nf the place, and forming a clique by themselves, condescended to associate, but little, and that in a haughty roanner, with their more plebian, but not less worthy companion. ' On a peasant spring morning, .two of these young ladies,, gaily and fashionably dressed, might have been seen entering tbe store of Qui. -.Dennis the principal 'mer chant of the place, who bad just returned from Boston with his usual supply of sum mer goods. The polite clerk hastened to attend his fair customers, and the counter j was soon piled with silks, laces, and vari ous other elegant etceteras of female ap parel. over which the young ladies' express sions of delight were ss loud and enthusi astic as gentility would permit. Among other -delicate fabrics for sum mer wear, was a beautiful piece Qf em broidered muslin of a new and fashionable style, containing material for precisely six dresses, and no . more. In the greatest eevtacy the fair aristocrats hastened to in lorm their companions of this lortunste discovery, and in a thort time the whole j bevy were assembled in the store.' wih the exception of oneA who was out of town on a visit,) eager to eerure the coveted trea I sures. before they should attract the gsze of vulgar eyes. "Oh how charming," exclaimed little Fanny Walters, the younuest of the group, clapping bet1 bands in delight, "I wonder what theodii us Jane Kendall will say now. Only think of her presuming to have a dress like mine last summer p.air mechan ic's daughter as she is Bui we'll outwit ' her this time," and Fanny fairly danced in the exuberance of her gfee. j " Don't be such a romp. Fanny," said her older sister, "I am really ashamed of you. But what a pity that cousin Alice is away this week, when we shall want to wear our new dresses to church . next Stab bath." " Yes," snid a third, a tall queenly look ing girl, "but we cannot wait for her there is no certainty when she will return, and the dress can be reserved for her, so that it will make no difference. Mr. liar ey," she added, addressing the clerk with ber usual imperintiaair; "you must prom, ise us not to sell this dress to any person ol the common people; we wish ft reserved for Alice Walters who is out of town at present." The gentlemanly clerk, bowing politely, gave-the required promise, but there was a roguish twinkle in his eye which might hnve aroused suspicion, had not the yoong ladies been too much absorbed with their purchases to nbserte it. Laving the store, they hastened with all expedition to the shop of the only fashionable dress maker in the place, and assailed her with urgent entreaties to have tho dress all completed without fail, by Saturday night This the dress maker assured them was utterly impossible, ns the had but one as sistant, nnd it was near the middle of the week, already The girls were in despair they had set their hearts on appearing at church the next Sabbath in their now dresses and they could not endure to be djsapp -itited. At this juncture, Jane Kendall eot'-red the shop on an errand, and learning tbe state of affairs, volun teered her assistance in making the dres ses, with an air of great -cordiality. As Jane wns known to be very expert with the needle, and there seemed to he no other way of accomplishing their wishes, her offer was finally accepted io a suffici ent'y ungracious manner. Tbe Sabbath came at last warm and pleasant, with a.i unclouded . sky, .and as usual, nearly the whole popula.ton aasem bled iu the litUo ld fashioned church for public worship. But (rum some cause or otiier, an unusual air of expectation seemed to pervade the younger , portion of the as sembly. and Harvey was seen to exchange a glance, of rogueish intelligence with Jane Kendall. Juat before it was time for the services to commence, the door opened, ami tho fine white dresses, fash ionably made aud adorned, moved . grace fully up the broad aisle, and seated them selves in a eongpicious position, where they immediately became '"the observed of all observers " , The clique had enjoyed their triumph but a moment,., however, when a heavy fiotstep again attracted the attention of the congregation, and ysho fchotild be seen nteriog.tKialiMw hut "Bhick 'Ruth,'; j a kitchen iBoullitiri in" tlie neighborhood, : ' wuii oer iat lorm vnsonneed in a white dress of the same fashion, and ruiterial as those which had just caused eo Intensive a violation of tlie tenth c mmandment among the young ladies, of M Marching witb a ludicrous attempt at dignity, direct ly up tbe broad aisle, '&h passed "the pew occupied by the "aristocracy," and seated hers-it with great complacency in the Ksndalls," which wns nearly opposite At this moment . tbe services commenced, but it is a matter of doubt whether many of the younger members of the congrega tion could have told, or their return fr. m church, the sulject of tlie forenoon's dis course. - The reply of . tbe trescherous clerk, to tbe storm of invective and reproach with which be was assuiied by tbe outraged aristocracy, was exceedingly satisfactory.
