FRIPAV. ...JAWPAB,T 31 LOSING AND WINNING. THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF AN ORPHAN. WRITTEN BY HERSELF. [CONTINUED.] 'Yes, the children 1" His face kindlod. "They mutt be a pi cut comfort now. An drew is eight, and his little sister three years younger. You don't know, Gertrude, how I have longed to see those children. 1 dream about them nights. I hear their laby words, and feel the clinging hold of their little fingers, and then I wake to re member that perchance they de not even know that their father lives to pray for them. l!ut, Gertrude, their love would not be enough to fill up the voids in my life. I have felt this more than ever since I knew you, and more than ever have I pitied Kath eiinc in her lonely, blighted youth. "All this time, Gertrude, I had no thought cf obtruding upon you. I had no right. To ft man of honor his vows are as sacred in the untold wretchedness of an uncon genial marriage as if happiness had made it impossible to have a wandering wish. 1 believe myself incapable of breaking mine, even in thought. There was do reasonable ground on which the law could give me lieedom. The release which is granted to crime is denied to misery. Even were it utlierwise, I should not have soueht it. I Lad always a horror of divorce, and not for worlds would I have entailed its disgraceful publicity upon my children. Freedom could come to me but in one way, and God kcows, even when I have been tempted al n ost beyond my strength, 1 never have been mad enough or wicked enough to wish .'or that. "When I had visited here for a while I rcund I could not stay away. Your society bad become a necessity to me. 1 believed you my friend merely, but I discovered that friendship was very sweet. At last the knowledge forced itself home that I loved you with all the Btrength of my na ture. This love had stolen upon me so gradually, and now seemed so much a pan of try hie, that 1 could scarcely chide my self." Had this been all, I think you would i;ever have heard the history I have told ycu. I would have schooled myself to taste calmly the dangerous delight of your pres ence; and when this was no longer possible, ycu should have seen me no more. Hut in the same hour that the conviction of my love for you was brought home to my soul, I discovered also that I had in my power to in your heart. I had a Btrange feeling as if, in the native country of souls, yours and B.ine had grown together. 1 believed I had power to summon my other self to my side. .Nay, I thought, unconsciously to yourself, you did love me now. Forgive me, Ger trude. I know that I am speaking to you ns man does not ofiento woman, but in this hour there is no room for disguise or con cealment. I read your heart as I had read my own. Then I knew my duty. I must tell you all, that you might understand how licrcless was my future that you might conquer your coming agony before it was too mighty for you. I believe some men would have been tempted to keep silence, find strive still to win your love; but, thank God, I was left open to no such temptation. More than yourself I prized the stainless purity of your heart and life ; dearer even to me than my love was my unsullied in tegrity, by which only could I call myself my peer. I have told you all. lo you for give me that I touk for granted your love lor me ?" I could not speak, but I reached acrosss the table which stood between us and laid my hand in his. Then for a while we were both silent, lie spoke first : "Gertrude, I shall never talk of these things again. I have shown you for this once all that is in my heart. In return I have a right to make but one request. I have wealth; let me use some of it for you. I can not bear to see you toiling day by day for your daily bread. While I have enough and to spare, you shall not, you must not, w ear out your young life in this diudgery. If you were my sister you would let mel;e!p you. Am I not as near to you as a brother? Docs not my love give me as much right as brothers claim? Do cot he angry, Gertrude. I hardly know bow to utter my petition so ns not to wouud ycu. I teg only lor this. Let me make a Lome for you among congenial people; let me surround you with the common comforts of life ; let me feel that you are at least fcbove and beyond the necessity of toil. Then I will submit to any thing else. If you prefer, I will never see you ; or, if you will let me visit you sometimes, I will ask only for your friendship the sympa thy you would give suffering any-where." He paused, but I read an appeal in his face, fuller of earnestness even than his words. I never for one moment doubted his honor or his heart. I knew that he re spected me as deeply as he had loved me that his care for me would be tonder as that of a brother for a sister. But I was my father's daughter. I had my own pride to satisfy also. I could not accept a pecuniary obligation even for him. Nay, less readily from him than from any other, lecatat I loved him. But I did not wish to answer him then. I had my arrange ments to make my future to settle. I would tell him in a week, I said, not now. I was too tired too much exhausted. Would he leave me, and not come ajr iin for one week then he should know. He must give me time to think. He obeyed me. He only held my hand for a moment, and then he went. "Good-by, and God bo with you!" I said, as he stepped out into the moonlight. He did not know that in my heart I meant that farewell to be the last utterance of my lips to him, until we should meet again where victor souls learn the triumphal an them of the angels. I went back into the room where I had met this last and bitterest sorrow of my life. Soon my plan for the future was shadowed forth in my mind. Then I had a right to think over all that Andrew Lincoln hud aid. I reverenced him unspeakably. Little as I knew of human nature, I re alized I had read Jane l'.ijrt the ease with which he might have deceived me. I knew he loved me with a love as true and tender as the pen of the romancers had ever portrayed. How I blessed him that it had been no selfish passion that his love for truth and right had been mightier. And yet answer me heart of every woman who shall read this tale was my trial light? Because of his very goodness, because I could reverence bis image in my soul, and look up to it as almost without taint or flaw of human imperfection, was it not all the harder to know that between us swept the tide of circumstances remorseless as death, pitiless as destiny ? And yet, in the midst of my desolation, it was something to feel that he could have loved me that had Fate given us to each other I might have been hit happy wife. I sat there until the first ray of the morn ing stole through the windows. I looked at the almost empty grate. Castle with shining turrets, Same-colored tints of Au tumn woods, burning bushes, all had van ished into the cold gray ashes, signifying desolation. Was it a type of what that night had done for my heart ani life? I walked toward the store that morning with a heavy heart. Once more I must fold my tent and go on alone into the des ert. For a little time I had lingered beside nn oasis of peace. I had lastod pleasure. It had proved a cheat, a mirago, it is true. No matter, it had gladdened my eyes while it lasted. Now I must give up all the home I had made for myself, the friends who had been kind to me, the work by whioh t had earned my bread. I must go where? In that moment, clear as if my guardian angel had stopped to whisper them ia my car, came to me my father's last words: "The widow's God a Father to the fatherless trust, my darlings, trust." Had the invisible, strong arm ever failed me? Need I doubt it now? I walked on with renewed courage. When I reached the store I sought an in terview with Mr. Emerson. I told him that I had imperative need of change: that there were reasons why I was unwilling to re main any longer in New York ; and I in quired if he could help me with his advice or suggestiens. He told me, in reply, that he had felt from the first I ought not to be in my pres ent situation. He knew the constant contact with strangers was repugnant to my tnstej that I was capable of doing something better. Still ho had honored me for submitting so cheerfully to necessity: fordoing so well what I had undertaken to do. Ever since I had been there he had been on the look-out for some different em ployment, by which I could maintain my self more agreeably, but as yet he had found nothing very desirable. Yet, if I was so anxious for an immediate change, there was something an advertisement he had seen in the evening paper a governess wanted for two small children in Eastern Virginia. It did not seem to promise much, yet I might like it better than the store. 1 thanked him eagerly. I do not often weep, but the tears choked my voico. It was not gratitude, though his kindness touched mo deeply ; but I was leaving so much so much that he could never know. That morning a letter was dispatched to the address indicated in the advertisement, giving, as I afterward discovered, as muoh of my history as Mr. Emerson himself knew ; praising me far beyond my deserts, and stating that, it my services were ac cepted, I would be ready to commence my duties immediately. Five days of my week of trial had already passed before an answer was received to that letter. In the mean time I had trem bled lest I might not after all, be able to get away lest I might be obligod to see Mr. Lincoln again, though I was convinced such an interview could only be productive of additional plan. At length my suspense was ended. Mr. Emerson's recommenda tion was accepted, and he was requested to inform the young lady that a carriage would await her at the station on the afternoon of the twenty-seventh of April. The letter bad been delayed one day in its transit, and I should just be able, by starting the next morning, to reach my divination at the appointed time. That night, with Mrs. Niles' assistance, I made all my preparations. I did not con fide my plans for the future even to her. I told her enough of the circumstances in which I was placed to cosvince hor that, for the present, it was better she should not know. I had previously secured from Mr. Emerson a promise of secrecy. He was to be deaf and dumb to all inquiries, should any be addressed to him. [TO BE CONTINUED.] Latest and Most Important Information. All. SHOULD KNOW IT.

Cincinnati "Weekly Press Cincinnati "Weekly Press Cincinnati Weekly Press The Cincinnati Weekly Press Having passed into new hands, its present conductors hare determined to reduce its subscription price to ' such a rate, to c'o that the poorest person .in the land need no be without a paper. The TRESS shall not be surpassed by any Weekly Journal in the West, either in its News or Literary Department. We are determined that it Bhall be a faithful epitome of the current events of the day, and that what is cot found iu its columns will scarce be worth looking for. Of course, we do not expect to give elaborate articles on each event of the dsy, but the reader may look for a succint and intelligent account of every transpiring event. Particular attention will be given to a faithful record of the absorbing topio of the day, The Civil War, Xow raging in our land. We trust, ere the year upon which we are just entering is closed, that we shall see the end of this great rebellion, and that our .beautiful land will be restored to its wonted prosperity. THE LITERARY DEPARTMEXT, The columns of the PRESS will abound in choice Poetry and Fireside Stories of the most readable and unexceptionable character. Onr readers will find each week a pleasing variety, especially adapted to tie Home Circle. LATE TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. We shall give, in onr Telegraphic column, the most important events transpiring in all portions of the world. In this Department he PRESS will be found as full, correct, and valuable as any paper published at double its price. Cheap and Good. We intend to demonstrate, in the publi cation of the PRESS, that a good paper can be furnished at a low price. The times are extremely stringent,' and thousands will be compelled to do without a newspaper, unless tbey can secure it at a low figure. Wo are determined to place the PRESS within the reach ef all, as will be seen by glancing at our IEXTREMEI.T LOW TERMS: Single Copy. One Year $1 OO Two Caples, One Year 81 80 (NINETY eBMTS IACH.) Five Copies, One Year $1 00 (EIGHTY CENTS EACH.) Tea Copies, One Year 87 00 (SEVENTY CENTS EACH.) fifty Copies, On Year, ta a Bleat Address 943 00 Being at the unprecedented low rate 0 FIFTY CENTS A YEAR, Less than ONE CENT number. Who is there eo poor who can not afford FIFTY CENTS for a year's reading ? Nothing but the expectation of an enormous list could tifyu us In placing the PRESS at this low figure. We trust that our friends in differ ent sections will exert themselves to increase our list It will require but a word to tret subscribers at the above rates.
