One •an find plenty of work there." "They say that women are scarce out there in Louisiana," said Julie, compla cently. "Maybe 1 shall find a husband, and revenge myself in that way. "You may not be seut into exile, Marianne, hopefully. "Show yourself re pentant, and the Sister Superior will inter est herself in your behalf." Just at this Jime The Sflfer Genevieve appeared at the door of 4^rison, and all looked towards her in a manner that plain ly showed how much love they entertained for her. "She lias been attending the sick, new she comes here to cqneole tile afflicted, said^Marianne, in a low voice. said M .. ell, for so good a woman,* she is the meekest I ever saw," added Julia, in a de cided tone. "What do I not owe her ?" continued Marianne. "Her gentle words first awak ened feeling in my heart that I thought long since (lead. When I see those pure and humble women, who have nothing hut virtues to confess, daily kneeling in praver, what can I expect—I who am so guilty." "And I, too," said Florette. "But they have taught me that I can atone for the past," said Marianne, still in a half musing tone, "that every good deed will efface a fault committed." "I am afraid I couldn't live long enough to balance the account," said Julie, in a voice which expressed both jest and sad ness. The conversation was interrupted hy the entrance of the physician of the prison, who was none other than the same charita ble doctor whom we saw at the Palace St. Sulpice, when he would have benefited Louise so greatly, had he been allowed to do so. As he entered, Sister Genevieve went eagerly towards him, displaying a nervous ness that was very strange. Ah, doctor, I have been waiting im patiently for you," she said, in a marvel ously sweet voice. "I am not late, I believe," replied the physician, as he glanced at his wa'ch to as sure himself that he was punctual to the time appointed. "No," answered the sister, "but you led me to hope that when you came to-day you would bring me—" "Good news," added the doctor, while a smile of satisfaction and pleasure passed oveThisface. "Well, I have done every tlung in my power. I have spoken of the interest you have taken in this unfortunate woman, of her sincere repentance, and I even went so farasto add a few good%ual ities on my own account." \ "You did wrong, doctor," said the good sipler.in atone that showed plainly that she was hurt at any subterfuge having been used, even though it was done to effect a purpose which she had very much to heart' ''There is no cause sacred enough to justify (lie violation of the truth." "You will thank me, nevertheless sister," replied the doctor. "Then ygu have succeeded ?" was the eager question. "Completely. "Heaven he praised!" said Sister Gene vieve, piously, as she clasped her hands and breathed a prayer of thankfulness.— Then turning (o Marianne, she said: "Marianne, come here, my child. Here is our good doctor, who will tell you what he has done for you." "For me ?" asked the surprised girl, as she went slowly towards them. "You must thank Sister Genevieve, not me," said the physician. "Touched by your repentance,she lias solicited your par don and release." For an instant, Marianne did not under siand all that the doctor's words meant; but when it flashed upon her mind that she was free, that now, thanks to the disinter ested kindness of the sister, she was no longer a prisoner, no longer in danger of being sent into exile, she threw herself on her knees before Sister Genevieve, and clasping her hand, rained kisses and tears on it in the fullness of her gratitude. "My benefactress! my mother!" she ex claimed, ill a voice almost choked with emotion. "No, no,"said Sister Genevieve, quickly. "It was he who obtained it for you." She pointed to the doctor,who was stand ing near, wiping away the tears which fill ed his eyes at such an exhibition of grati tude as Marianne furnished. "No," he said, gravely, "your release is granted to the good Sister Genevieve. To that good and noble woman, who, born within the walls of La Saltpetricre, has never consented to cross ils threshold; who lias made this prison her country, and its unfortunate inmates her family;wlio brings to you all her daily blessings of consola tion.and prayer, so that the vilest here respect and love her—" The doctor stopped abruptly, because on looking around upon the faces of the inmates wh» had gathered near them, he saw their cheeks bedewed with tears—tears of gratitude and love for the pure who was devoting her life to their and as his own eyes were not free from moisture, he thought it time to bring his remarks to a close. . , Marianne still held the good sister s hand, and gazed up into her face as though she would impress those calm and placid features upon her heart indelibly. They stood around the sister, silent and tearful, when the prison bell was rung loud and sharp. ... It was the signal for the prisoners to retire to their cells, and they began to towards their narrow, cheerless ; u a woman welfore, move rooms. "It is time to go in, vieve, cheerfully, and then taking Man fate between her hands, she lm her forehead, said Sister Genc anne s printed a loving kiss upon .enl^'you .ill befree. Etonot , i—=&* An latelflffeat Aetree*. (From the Arcadian.} A good example of the wav society plays have lowered the standard or acquaintance with dramatic literature among the profes sion Is shown In the following true anec dotes : Mr, Gotthold, of Pittsburg, bad last year among his stock a lady or fair dramatic talent, who aspired to hold a prominent po sition. When Mrs. Agness Booth came along "King John" was put on. The cast was, as usual, posted In the green room, and this lady went to Inspect It. The room was unoccupied, but Mr. Gott hold happened to be standing In the door way, and potlced the lady's close examina tion of the cast. "King John," she muttered to herself, "I've never been In that;" then perceiving her manager, she turned and inquired who wrote "King John." "Madamme," said the manager, drawlog himself up to his full height and looking down at her with great dignity, "Shakespeare." "Good gracious," exclaimed the lady, "has that man written another play ?" A Fatal Journey. William Whittaker Barry, a London lawyi r who was an enthusiastic pedestrian, and had written several books about bis re markable tours afoot, was last fall lost in the mountains of the Tyrol. He registered at a hotel at Krimme, and said that he was going to walk over the apex of the moun tain, 9,000 feet high, to Kascrn, on the other side. The path which be took is only used In summer, and at that time the weather was cold and enow was falling. He wore thin clothing, and, under all the cir cumstances, the exploit was foolhardy in the extreme. On the way up the mounta-n be met a shepherd who was coming down, and who tried to dissuade him from going any further ; but, although darkness was gather ing, a snow storm was commencing, and at least five hours of fast walking would be required to take him to his destination, he persisted in his attempt. He was never seen after that, nor has his body been found, although extensively searched for. FINANCIAL. WILMINGTON, August I. GOLD AND BOND QUOTATIONS, Reported by Cralge.
