Bereft of the last one. but not by death She had given birth to seven sons four had been lost to her, in their youth, but the others she liau reared from tntancy to manhood; and then one by one had she closed tbe pallid eyelids, imprinted the last kiss upon the rigid lips, ftnd stood by, until their forms were encof- fined and Dome torever irom ner aweii' ing. She had beard the clods rattling above their breasts, and the sound had entered her heart like arrows; but now all these memories were overwhelmed by the deeper grief that had come upon. her. Who could have looked upon bee sunk' on eyes, her blanched locks once black as the raven's wing, ner mm nps, com pressed so tightly her pale face, where not only Time, but sorrow, had hourly graved still deeper lines, but might have known how bitter to her, had been the cup of life ! how thickly scattered were its dregs throughout the field of mem ory! Who could have heard her voice, so chastened its tone, so tremulous at times, as though the heart laid hold of it, and freighted it with ?orrow, so earnest and so grave; but would have found their words faltering on their lips, in unpre meditated sympathy for one so stricken ? Who that could have sect her, when alone, within the funereal darkness of her dwelling, and marked her resile, troubled manner how, whene'et the wind blew wild, tossing; the drifted snow against the creaking shutters, and eddy- lnir down tne cnimucy, wun tis weiru sounds, she would pace to and fro tbe floor, and wring her bands and sob so Diteously : who that could have seen her then, but would have divined -that with other memories than those of the dead, was that once proud and stately form battling ? One night one dark, cold, sleety night, when tne storm wbiuti Had com menced at twitizht momentarily In creased In violence, when the wind came in gusts shaking every casement of the dwelling, and the rain beat fast and thick upon the roof, and against the windows that night she sat quietly in her hiirh-backed chair, with its morocco cushions, seemingly heedless of the fu rious storm tnat raged without, upon her dark mourning garments the flre- lizht fell it Hashed full upon the folded hands which rested ou her lap it glanced upon her pale countenance, re vealing there a look of hope aud of res ignation, more than for long months she liau Known Deiore.

Poor child ! poor child ! it will be but a sad welcome that the heart she has broken can give Uor;" and so saying she shook her head-elo wly. while 'the large tears which had gathered in her eyes rolled Iow4tber luce. The rumbling of a carriage over the road now fell upon ber ears. She started from her chair, and stood upright her clasped hands pressed tichtlv over her fast throbblne heart. With parted lips, from which all color ttsa.il flown, and with eyes strained wildly, .she stood motionless. The carriage drew nearer it paused beside her dwelling ante heard no more.

On. through narrow streets', until she reached the market place ; and now, the clouds which all the morning long had looked so threatening, deluged the streets with their contents. Still on, Mrs. Clair made her way through piles of boxes which blockaded the sidewalks, for it was the principal mercantile street of that city. At length she paused in front of a large tour story edince. A. broad sign over tbe door, bore the names of the firm, "Small, Morris & Co." Her trembling bands turned tbe knob, and the: door swung heavily . inward. - She made her way to a" young clerk" who -stood writing at a desk. "Can I see Mr. Ralston?" she said, in low tone. "Mr. Kalston! -Tnere's tM. such per son here. 'You must be -mistaken, my good woman," answered the cleric. "jar. ttenry Kalston, 1 mean, is ne not still iu the store?" persisted Mrs, Clair. v S,o, madam, nor never was. to my knowledge." : Mrs. Ulair looked arouud bewildered An elderly gentleman in the back nart of the. store advanced and- proffered her a chair. Pitying her agitation ; he in quired particularly her errand. Mrs Clair sank powerless into tbe chair. while tbe clerk mentioned: the gentle man's name for whom sue nau inquired, "Henry Kalston," repeated Mr. Small for it was the senior partner of the firm who spoke, "she is right, he was once with us, but he fell into bad habits, aud if I am not mistaken his father sent him to sea." Turning to Mrs. Clair, he added, "Mr. Morris has gone to dinner. madam. By going to his house you will be able to find out more than 1 can tell you. It strikes me that they have beard from him lately, but for a longtime it was supposed that he was dead . Mr Morris married Ralston's sister. Of course they will be able to give you some niiormation oi nun. lonn, lust write down the number of Mr. Mortis' rest dence." The clerk turned to his desk, and Mr. Small walked back into his counting- house. You seem anxious to see the gentle man," said the young man, as be handed her thu folded direction, i '. - . . . 'I am anxious anxious to have jus tice done before I die." "Mr. Morris is just the mart for you, then, if it is money that his brother-in-law is owing you, you'll be sure to get it from him. He is very charitable subscribed a hundred dollars only last week to the church of which he is a member; a fine, pious man Mr. Morris is. Good morning." Again through the wet, dismal streets Mrs. Clair made ber way. Over the pause in ber story until all was finished. Her eyes bad been cast dowu, but now be raised them to meet the lp)k f sym pathy she expected. t. She might a well have looked - into a face of stone. MadamJ'.li said, and bia.taaes. wore soft and measured, but every word fell like a blow upon the heart whose wounds bad been opened atresn, "niadam, 1 am sorry to say that I can do nothing for you.

Gladly, Edith availed1 herself of the kind offer; and strove to make herseif useful about the upuse and iu the store. Mrs. Dayton felt Editb-to be--burden ;tOT-heT, but. as she was' unable tdpay htW-anyAvages; she exerted herself to obtain some bet ter situation for tier.

Mrs. Dayt6ii took it from her. it so, happened that the firm of jWbicb ahe had purcliased theieoarser part or tier stock of goods was that of small, . Morris & Co. As she had fre quently heard of Mr. -Morris charities, she concluded that he had.giveu Mrs. Clair his - address, ,thac he migtit call upou him when she .needed assistance. To him she therefore' immediately went to represent the friendless state of the. orphan.. Mr. . Morris .-was. annoyed by this; second application, and spoke as plainly ,-of the Jttms-house. as a never- t'ailiug resource tor the homeless to Mrs. DaytuB'as- lie bad- to Mrs; Clair. She was too much surprised to answer, but changed the subject of conversation by i nquiriijg about sotue goods she had in tend ed-Oideriug, -Mr. Morris intimated that if she was going to keep open house for beggars, he should prefer not to see her any nun; Chagrined and mortified Mrs. Dayton 'left the store. "Is this Christianity?" she though, forgetful of the ntany .'.whose, lives-cast no .reproach, upon thu pure religion of the gospel. $hesid -nothing to Edith of her er rand, for she did not wish to pain her arry preierreu ssa-ying-wnere sns was and very reluctantly, left the room with the others at her mother's second bid ding. "Have yoii always been obliged to support-yourself, Misa Edda,?" . . . uOht no, it ionly since-grandmother lost everything in. the bank nearly two years now, I believe," answered Edda, sighing as she spoke. "What was your grandmother'a name?" Rebecca Clair." v "Oh, your father's mother was. it?". "Ko, my mother's." . -i . : "Then both must have had the same Lname cousins, were thejr not?." . "a uu not jsuow. a never tDougnt i that before.- Grandmother never Would talk about my father. . I believe he did very badly, and mother grieved herself to death alter him ; but is was all; when I was baby, for I dou!t remember either of them. I haven't a relation in the world now, that I know of." Mrs Morris clasped Edith's -hand J&r tweeit bar own.. She-d4d -not -dare te breathe a word respecting her surmises, but she felt their truth, and her heart gushed up in tenderness toward . the chtld of ber brother. The prejudices of thd world, which at other times., .might haye held an influence over her, were in that unselfish hour forgotten.- - She folded Edith to her breast,-ar.d.raentaily resolved that so far as lay in . her war, shJ would be a mother to her. That night Mrs. Morris communicated to her husband Edith's history, aud her own convictions concerning her. Mr. Morris', surprise -at: fiiuding Edith Clair an inmate of. bis family equalled his vex ation. Intstesid of recognizing the Prov idence that had thus made her one of his household, he affected to donbt hls wife's suspicions, although Mrs Dtiyton- bad communicated to him sufficient to. con vince him of their truth. ,So thoroughly provoked was he at his 'wife's freedom from selfishness, that he felt like turn ing the unconscious cause of his anger outot the house, rearing a discovery, he commanded his wile not to breathe a word of such nonsense to her brother or to Edith; and he knew her too well to doubt that she would obey. The next day-, Mr. Heiiry Ralston ar rived. Neither his nephew's fancy sketch, nor his sister's recollections found their counterpart ; and reluctantly the latter was obliged to acknowledge that she had out slender foundation lor weaving her romantic tissue. to BB onsrrsuED. - i - -r ax w'-w. serthe tuedrttte-Staie. tnftn U -orated ibru n under.tne was. 4scoAthNM ;wwtiK -ittwd ht M hwntsB iflsOT .ar hl 'tittarMd' ' bber Snutm ett nanstf-iua Jpreprietor.' tayitBM lwproweMusytae broeartit'hls' tbrtydtK3dstOitabMban. -tdia.alwavis iWv44herjpdMlitaIty tt areatortblaniaitufaotorw.

' It was so highly prized that the sovereigns of France, in making complimentary gifts of rare and costly -treasures to. crowned heads, thought the offering incomplete unless a piece of Gobeliu Tapestry . wag included; and at the present time there is no relic of the past more treas ured by the fortunate possessor than, one pn their alic-alm. giviig, as Mr. Mor-1 went out.by the week, choosing now that of those fadedbutstlbeautifui, hang- bate donation after donation to tbe flour ishing societies of tire-day ,-tArMrlHg a deaf ear to a recital of the cases of actual want tbat,x9tna .beueattv their notice. fbnir cOntfibutions are heralded throughout the churches of which they am- minihira- and k' ?h3.racrjr : for nietv and charitybuilt thereouy -while feacful is the account .which is- heapig--up for the great day against them.

The. sky .was as blue and sunny, and flecked ' witli as white and fleecy clouds as after a storm in June. Mrs,', Clair, was., weak -and -exhausted i rom excitement and want or ioou. &ne picked her way carefully through the miry streets, and at length reached in safety her humble home. Edith waa sewing :bv the. window anxiously awaiting her coming. ,She bounded to. tne door to meet, ner she drew lier into the warm room-i-unfast-ened her cloak and bonnet,, and after fixing her comfortably in her arm-chair, she brought the cup of tea which she had prepared for her return. iAil the" while Mrs. Cl'alr said nothing. "You look sick and tired, grandma," said Edith. Mrs. Clair did not answer. Over the little round table Edith flung a snow white doth, and- continued . her preparations for their frugal supper. Mrs. Clair broke off a crust of bread and ate it slowly. Twilightcaine.oii. and still she sat there in a kind of stupor, while Edith began to grow alarmed. After vainly urging her grandmother tp eat more she lighted the caudle," and "lifter putting away the things, drew her own low chair up to the fire-place. . .' A j. l '" I - An hour or more passed away in a silence unbroken save by Edith's knit ting thread, tbe falling coals, and the clock ticking on tbe mantel. "Edith, my ohild, bring the: Bible and read aloud to' tne tho thirty -sevehth psalm." - . she could pay ber. board, to return and pass the nights and Sabbaths . with the friend who had proven so -kind to her. Other reasons there were why Edith was (ferrous of having her evenings unmo lested ; but that was a little -heart ro mance, with which at present we have nothing to do. Recommended - by one -,to., another, Edith tame at last to'be employed by Mrs. Morris, but as she was known only by tbe name of "Miss Edda," the family would have bad uo suspiciou of -who she was, even had Mr. Morris communicated to them the Information Mrs. Dayton had given him. But this he had not done. ,He thought it more polite to keep it fo himself, particularly as tbe rumor of bis brother-in-law's large fortune and speedy return had beeu fully confirmed. Miss Edda became a great favorite iu Mr. Morris' family. The little folks loved nothing better than to gather around her in the work room, and there was at least one larger one who. fouud a charm in ber presence. One morning Mr. Morris said to his wife, as ha laid down the paper, "The Orient haft been spoken, I see. Your brother will probably be with us in the course of twenty-four, hours." A glow of pleasure lighted un Mrs. lit Ai-i-ic) rlnltiara farta "Poor Harry ! I can hardly wait to see him." rPoor Harry," echoed hej husband, "he is anything' but poor, if the half we hear be true. - You must have the choic est kind of a dinner to-morrow, for uo doubt he is accustomed to living like a nabob. Why is it that you apply the ad jective 'poor' to him how, Anna?" "Well, I don't know. Habit, I sup pose. You kuow he was always iu some scrape or other, aud father was always scolding him, aud I pitied liiin for 1 knew he was good-hearted, and would come out right some .day. Poor fellow! his heart was almost broken when he was sent off, but It has turned out for the best, It seems. I wonder if that woman's daughter could have been the one he fretted so about." ' 1 am sure I don't know, nor don't care either, and 1 warrant he doseu'tby this ings, ornamenting the walls of some lofty apartment, which furnished with tbe elegant - but equally tarnished f carved and grided furniture or the time of Louis le Grande, had been set apart aud held almost sacred as the guest chamber of royalty. Every remnant of it everywhere iu Europe is preserved with the greatest care, not only for its ant'quity. but really, for its worth as a unique work of art; and to be the for tunate owner -of a hanging of old Gobe tins antedating the fiannaissance is a dis tinction, it may be interesting to many to learn something relating to the origin ot the Manufacture ivactonaie aet yooe lint, which up to the late seige of Paris was still in existence and, flourishing How it has fared during the frightful and destructive reign ol the Communists we have seeu no account. In the fifteenth century, 1450, a dyer of wool named Jean Gobelin established himself in the Faubourg St. Marcel, up on the Uierre, where many others ot hit craft carried on their business the wa ters of this stream- being favorable to the, process of dyeing. Heacqttired con siderable property in the neighborhood and his descendants not only continued his trade, but became such expert nod skillful workers iu wool that they -wen fame aud riches, retired from business and eventually filled various offices i the State. Tbey were succeeded by Canaye-ot Sons, who did . not confine themselves to wool-dying, Out established a department iu their manufactory for working tapestry for hangings a branch of elegant industry, which, .until that period, was confined to Flanders. About luoa they were succeeded by a German named Gluck. who brought with him workman, Jean Linnseu, who excelled in the art of embroider v ou -canvas .and cloth. The manufactory retained its old style of 'Manufacture des Gobelins;" aud all the marvelous work produced there was known as the "Gobelin's Ta pestry." The establishment being high ly prosperous, and Its productions be coming more famous, Louis XIV deter mined, at tha suggestion of his astute financial adviser Colbert, to erect it into a royal manufactory.
