THE ORPHAN GIRL. " ; James Carter was poor, yea, very poor. Left an orphan at an early age he was cast upon his own resources, lor friends were few, and day after day he would set forth with his pack upon his shoulders to dispose . of his good. To a passer by, the face of James would have been merely glanced at, without a thought whether it was handsome or not,but to a close observed of human -rature, it would have seemed marked with the traeea of - beauty. His drees was not in lie I fashion of the day, for poverty had bounds which he could not pass, bnt his garments, were nevertheless in a stale of neatness. To those who knew . James it iwas a matter of surprise, how, under bis weight of misfortune his heart was bo light. "Ilia voice could be heard . at night singing come scraps of old tongs ; though his lot was humble, a smile was ever on his lips. His lif was indeed lonely ; there were no Voices of affection to greet him in tones of fondness, when at eight he arrived home weary and faint ; he had no bosom to which to confide " his sorrows ; but there amidst the loneliness of his humble hut, ' his years were passing in dreariness and. sorrow.-. It is easy for those who dwell in large houses, and who are surrounded with every comfort 10 be happy and gay ; bet to maintain a Iighi "heart amid the gloom and' darkoess of ! poverty is heroism, let the worjd say what jt.will. . ; - . It was a lovely day in summer, as James took his pack and wended his was through he slreeta of the city. . It had been" to him an unfortunate day,' for at" every- door he "stopped he was met with a cold , reception, lirid the cry of "want nothing to day,"., ; With feelings of disappointment - be turn ed his weary steps., homeward, meditat'f-g 'on his way of; the coJd, charities of this world. On passing through a miserable al ley, ISe abode of the vicious and the unfor tsaate, his ears were saluted with the cries 'of poverty, and "the blasphemous epithets cf crime. There was one liltla. girl who Wnck M attention by her tender years and her r-?2?r9 araents. -Wcriher notic. BLOOMSBURG, COLUMBIA peddlar's face, or; was drawn towards him by the ties of some magnetic influence, we know not.; but certain it is that she ap proached him, and in a voice so soft and gentle that it might have been breathed in to angel's ears, said ; . ; f 'Kfnd sir, oh ! have pity, and give me a home. I am an orphan, and have no place to lay ray head.?' "Poor thing," thought James, "and she is an orphan," and then he thought of his loneliness and his own friendless state. "But I am a man," said he, "and have strong hands and a strong heart, but .his poor girl is weak, feeble, and unable to con tend against the streams of adversity. If I leave her, it may be to degradation," and he shuddered even at the thought. , "Just one penny, sir, to buy a biscuit !" exclaimed the child, in tones of sorrow. "Oh! I am so hungry," and she. laid her emanciated hand into that of James, and gazed up into bis face. ."Poor girl," said James, as he handed her some money, "are you huDgry 1" . "Yes,'' replied the girl, in an artless to ie, "and sad too, for I have no father or moth er. I am a beggar and an outcast." "What is your name, my little girl," and so kind were the tones in which the ques tion was asked, that she crouched closer to his side and answered, "Kate, sir." ... For a moment, and only for a moment, he hesitated, then taking her hand in his, bis face became illuminated with - noble purpose. . "Does no one have a kind word for you, Kate V. he asked. "Is there no one to love you V "Not one," answered the child timidly, but when mother died, she told me to be a good girl, and the father who dwells above would love and protect me, and now He is the only one who loves me." , The heart of the man . was touched ; memory carried him back to his own moth er and her teachings, and taking the child in his arms, he kissed her pale thin cheek, and in a voice choked with emotion, said : "You 6hall go with me. Yes, you shall be the light of my poor hut, until you grow to be a woman, and I will be to you as a father. So come along. - James Carter was a happy man ; he had Pdone a good action, and his conscience ap proved of the deed. They reached the nouns it was not built in modern 6tyl, nor was it replete with every comfort and convenience, but it was sufficient for the happiness of two loving and thankful hearts. Here we are," he cried, "now make yourself happy. . Come, let me wash your lace, and then we will eat some supper." That night James Carter was the happi est man in Baltimore. He had now some thing to love, and he thanked God for giv ing in his loneliness, such a companion as Kate the orphan. . From that day there was a great change in the outward appearance of James. He became more tidy, and all wondered at the sight; his house was kept in order, and he look great pains in having everything ar ranged properly. He sent Kate to school, so that she might be educated, and well was he repaid for all his kindness, as he met the smiles of the lovely girl. He bad a home to which he could come with the anticipation of meeting love and veneration, and it was with a cheerful heart that he wended his way to his abode. As Kate grew up, his bucinesg hegan to increase, and he knew that God had sent him a double share (or her sake. "He had cat his bread upon the waters, and it had returned to hiin." He at length opened a small store, and painted his name on a board in front, and felt far happier than the "merchant princes," on the wharf. Kate grew up beautiful, talented, and lov ing, and as James gazed upon her his heart throbbed with an undefined sensation as he saw that in many ' respects 6he was like him. Every smile she gave him, every kind word she spoke fell upon his heart like heavenly mnsic, and he watched her every action with a jealous eye. Ten years flew , by upon the wings' ol time, and James Carter was a man of high standing in Baltimore. Kate now expand ed to the full grown women; nature had lavished her beauties not only in outward appearance, but alao endowed her with In ward grace and virtue. Her eyes were soft and blue, as if they had stolen their color from the sty of Italy f har lips were like the coral brought .from, the, depths of the ocean, while her mouth appeared like a rosebud cleft with pearls. ' As James gazed upon her he ' would wonder if she would ever leave him, but the thought was so painful to contemplate that he turned away from the subject. He was in love. , The fame of Kate's beauty had apread through out the city ; her protector was rich, and of course the was an heiress. The butterflies of fashion thronged around, but to all she was the came, giving favors or preference to none; there waa one who by his perse vering attentions, hoped to gain the prize cay he was certain of it for was be not rich"? r . ; . ; : ; . Frank Hardy, the exqnisite, the wealthy man jroold often request Kate to accompa ny him to one or the other ot the various places of amusements, but in word of cold politeness she always refused. ' James no ticed hiVattentlonsand his heart was griev ed ; he knew that ahe was ; beautiful, and he was ten years -her'Eenior, but fetill he loved her yes, he felt It ' " " T One evening young Hardy came to the house, and after chatting awhile gave ber "I wish that fop would go elsewhere," said Kate, "as for me I am sick of him." "And pray why, dear Kate V "Because it might happen that I should fall in love with that stupid fellow." "And so you prefer some other husband than him." "Yes, indeed, one that I could love," and as she spoke she raised her beautiful eyes to his face. The heart of James Carter began to throb with hope at these words, and taking her hand he said ' "Conld yon love one whose every tho't is of you 1 Could you be content to share my lot?" ' "James, dearest James, am I not dream ing? And yoa would wed the poor or phan, who brings you nothing but the holy love of a pure heart?" Here her feelings overpowered her, and she wept upon his shoulder. James press ed a kiss upon her lips. Was he dreaming? Ah, do ; it was reality too blissful but for angels to gaze upon. The storehouse of his memory was un locked, and the scenes of other days came forth before his view. Once he was poor, lonesome, and wretched. God threw a poor orphan girl in his way; his heart was touched he took her home, clothed, fed, and schooled her, and this was his reward. He had grown to be a refined and honored man, and Kate, a pure virtuous, and beauti ful woman. The ways of God are indeed not our ways. Many men would have seen in the peddlar's act but an increase to his misery ; but the wisdom of the Most High had ordained that the blessing came with the burden. Looking to no reward apptoval of a good conscience, he under, took his deed of charity, but Providence now blessed him beyond his expectations ; and as he pressed the young girl to his heart, and calling her "his own, his dearest Kate," his heart experienced the happiness which angels feel in their mansion of glory. "Mr. Carter, I think it high time that Kate was getting married." : Thus spoke young Hard, a night or two after the above scene. ' "Just my opinion," quietly replied Car ter. ' "And I must let you know," said the ex quisite, "that I intend to propose to her; you have no objections,' I presume." "Not if Kate conseuts." "Well, I do not think she will refuse ; it will be as agreeable to her as to you. I can keep her in fine style." "Very agreeable, no doubt," and James chnckled. "You will, of course, do ihe right thing by her, Mr. Carter that is give her a liber al settlement t "When she marries, she shall have my all." "Well, now, I always said you were a good hearted soul. You will come, of course,' to see as, as we will be delighted to see you." "I think I shall stay at home," replied James, "for yoa see, my wife will be lonely without me." "Your wife ! why, who is 6he ? and when is it to come off?" "One question at a time, if you please she is Kate the time next Tuesday. You shall receive an invitation." "Kate !" exclaimed the surprised exqui si e, "why, is it impossible ;" and then he looked at his fine clothes, as if any woman could refuse their owner. "Impossible or not, come next Tuesday night." With muttered curses, the young man left, while James enjoyed his discomfiture. They were married the rich merchant and the beautiful woman, once the poor peddlar and the destitute girl. . Everybody blessed them, for he had kind words to all, and she tended to the poor and the needy. Prosperity had not obliterated within their hearts the recollections of their young er days, the cry of the unfortunate was ever met with the open hand of charity. The poor friendless boys who came to James for assistance were never cast away, for he remembered his own loneliness ; the youthful minds of young girls, trembling upon the threshold of vice, ever met in Kate a kind teacher, a warm friend, and a loving mother, for 6he knew full well the want of a friendly voice. Heaven smiled upon them, and bright, smiling eyes were lifted up, and little voices lisped out "Fa ther," "Mother." Verily, verily, charity bringeth it own re ward.

Speech of Mr. Breckinridge at Frankfort. Mr. Breckinridge delivered the following speech at Fravkfott, Kentucky, in reply to a demon stration of welcome by the citizens, on his return home, on the 18th ult. Fkllow-Citizcns: I thank yon out of the fullness of a grateful heart for this cordial welcome to my home. 1 feel, fellow-citizens, the impropriety upon an occasion like this of doing much more than returning to yon my cordial and grateful acknowledg ment for your kindness. Terhaps, however, I may be allowed here in the midst of my old District, and surrounded by my neigh bors and friends, on the soil of Kentucky, to make one or two explanatory statements, and forbear on this occasion to enter into any statement or argument in reference to the circumstances that occurred at Balti more, and which resulted, unexpectedly to me, in placing me before the country for the office of President. But I think it due to you and myself to say, that being cogni zant of all those facts, having observed all those transactions, having pondered care fully over them, having consulted with my friends, unconscious altogether of being animated or sustained by a hot ambition, I feel that the position 1 occupy to-day is right. Great cheering 1 feel that I could not have shrunk from it without being false to my country, false to myjriends, and false to myself. Consequently I accept the nom ination, with all its responsibilities. To those who take advantage of the position of a bilent man to heap upon him execra tions, I Bay pour on, I can endure. Ap plause. 1 leave it to others to explain more fully the facts and circumstances of this nomination. Perhaps, also, I may be al lowed to 6ay that the claim, that I stand before the country as a sectional candidate, cannot be trua, whether reference be had to the number of the States which co-operated in the nomination, or to the character ot the principles which animated them. When you find the Democratic organization aided by large conservative elements of other parties in all the Southern States, and in those two Slates upon the Pacific Ocean which have been so far removed from the contest of the Atlantic and Mississippi Val leys, that their judgment as to what is sec tional ought to be conclusive, and when you find a majority of the Democratic or ganization of the State of Pennsylvania, and a supposed majority of New Jersey, Con necticut and Massachusetts, with large an,d imposing organizations in all the other States, co -operating, how can such a nomi ; nation properly be called sectional ? A ma jority of the States of the Union sectional, and at war with the principles upon which the Union itself is founded 1 Fellow-citizens, as lo the charge that the Convention lo which I owe my nomination, supported, or that I myfelf am tainted with a spirit of disunion, how absurd to make a response to a Kentucky audience, and iu this old j District, too ! I am an American citizen a Kentuckian, who never did an act or cher- ibhed a thought that waa not full of devotion to the Constitution and the nion who feels as you do upon this subject.

Fellow-ciiizens, this is, perhaps, the last lvA tltnt 1 Ti 1 1 Kiva on nnrtrlnnittf fit cut? anything in mr nniahnnrn ana friend: dnr ing the pendency of this canvass, . , therefore, I shall enter into no argumeuts upon the particular topics of the day, per haps you will pardon me for making two or three observations, which, it seems to me, should commend themselves lo all parties everywhere. Fellow-citizens, we live under the best Government on earth. We are the , ouy country in the world where the exper rtpmnnttratprl that free institutions , . . i- l,j . , l,;r, J uo " 1 dl r . -. a large area of territory, and be consis- tent with public order. It has been demon- strated, in our case, for the first time in the history of the world. How are we to pre- J . serve these institutions ? How are we to pre serve intact the double form of government, State and Federal, that has been handed down to us by our forefathers? My answer is that we can only do it by clinging with unfaltering fidelity, unwavered by policy, to the Constitution they bequeathed to us. I hold that fidelity to the Constitution of the United States in all its parts, and in all its obligations, is the condition of the Ameri can Union, and its perpetuation. That Con stitution was framed and transmitted by the wisest generation of men that ever lived in the tide of times. It may be called an in spired instrument. It answered them at an early day. It has answered our purpose. It is good enough for our posterity to keep it pure. - The moment we do that, we change the character of our Government. The moment we violate one principle of the Constitution for policy, that moment it ceases to be the Government our fathers gave us, and when once we have drifted away from the land marks ot the fathers of the Government, we may find that the system of government has been changed. What an two or three of the fundamental principles of the Con stitution ? I assert without fear oi success ful contradiction anywhr re, that the great fundamental principle .underlying it, is the Equality of ihe States o the Union. They were equal and independent sovereigns be fore that instrument ;waa framed. It was framed to preserve alid certainly not to vio late this equality. This Government is a confederation of equals,., and the very mo- citizen and another, you discriminate be tween one description of property recog nized in one State, and that in another, that very moment you change the character of the Government, that moment you destroy the equality of the States and their citizens, and that moment you degrade one portion of the confederacy, and it becomes a union of some States and some provinces. Now, fellow citizens, growing out of this doctrine of the equality of the States, which, in the abstract, no man will deny, rose the duty of the Federal Government to protect the rights of citizens, and their property, everywhere within its jurisdiction, whenev er it shall be proper and necessary to do 60. Under the fhg of the Union the citizens ot Massachusetts. Michigan &Verrnont had the same rights,no mo reno less,as the citizensof ! Kentucky, Louisiana and Texas. That prop osition is indisputable. I forbear to apply it; but I lay it down as a fundamental idea. Another fundamental idea is the diaassoci- ation of Government from every system of religion or tar.h. J nis is given us Dy me j Constitution. Happily for us, no serious j attack is made upon it now, in any quarter. The Government is also charged with the J preservation of order. Ihen it we associ ate and maintain these fundamental princi ples, freedom irom religious tests, tne amy ; of Government to protect the citizen and j his property recognized as such, and the : equality of the States of the Union, and the j equality of the rights of the citizens in j their persons and property, we never can j go wrong. Ana we nave a cnart oy wnicu we may ever steer in smooth water and over placid seas I hold these principles as a portion of those of which I stand to-day the representative. I believe these principles are essential to the continued existence of this Union upon the principles upon which it was originally framed. I believe that by adhering to them the freedom of our con federacy will long continue, and the Union ot prosperous and happy States be preser ved. Then let us do it. Let us look each for himself upon (his question. Fellow citizens, why not adhere to the principles which every man in the ommonweaitn, : by their voices and votes, declared, a year ago, were principles of the Constitution ? j Fellow-citizens, I find, however, that be- trayed by your kindness, 1 am wandering j into saying more than I intended. My lips J from this time forth are of course sealed. 1 j have laid before you principles which I believe to be essential to our peace and our ' Union. I pass that question over to Ken- j tucky. I pass il over and place it in charge ' oi her patriotic sons, it is now lor Ken tucky herself to determine and ascertain her own sense of her own rights in this confed eracy. I feel, fellow citizens, that personal considerations are entirely out of the ques tion. Men upon this occasion are nothing more than the light dust in the balance. The great cause of the Constitution and the Union is everything, and if another were in my place, and I had a voice to speak, and was free to canvass this Com- 1 ,-vn 1 f K 4"s- 1 i nn T wr til j 1 ? i m An o t C ! . . , ' , . 0,.r v 1 Kentuckians! prove that you are not degen- J. . erate 6ons of the men of ninety eight.

Upon entering the parlor, he encountered an old lady, and a young lady, and her beau. The old lady spoke as follows: "I wish yon to marry my daughter and her feller," displaying much more agitation and excitement thau the parties most inter ested. "Certainly I am happy to see you. Al low me to look at your certificate." , The young couple complied with the request. The reverend gentleman glanced over ihe document, and a look of disappointment appeared upon his face. "Hallo !" tho would be bridegroom ex claimed. "Nothing burst, 1 hope ?" "I ra sorry to inform you that your cer tificate is informal, and consequently 1 can't marry you until another is obtained." "But, Mister," cried the lady, can't you half marry um for to-night, and to-morrow werll get a new certifikit and make it all right. It will be a dreadful disappointment to the young folks!" Thst have failures in London, sometimes that exceed anything ol the kind in this country. A shoe-dealer in that city, who was supposed to be doing "a nice, snog Ut ile business," having failed, his liabilities were discovered to be 250,000, and his as- sets $250. Governor Snyder and Pat. . Governor Snyder, the Governor of the Keystone State, was silting comfortably in his parlor at Selins Grove, his rural abode, the cares of State sitting lightly on his breast, for be had just left his dinner-table and felt at peace with all the world, when a knock was beard at the front door, and Patrick O' Hannegan was ushered into the presence of the good-natured Governor. "Guvner Snyder, I suppose," said Tat, with an attempt at an elegant bow. "So I am called ; pray be seated, and tell me what I can do for you to-day." . Pat cast a look around the room, rubbed his knees as he sat down on the edge of the chair, and after a few moments' hesita tion he began ia this wise : "Wa'al, Guvner, it's about six years since I came till this country, and I've been a livin' all that lime up there on Lycomin' Creek, and I thought it was about time I was goin' home till the ould country, to see my poor ould mother, God bless her ! be- fore ehe die8 and all my ouM friend& there. and 8Q j-m on my way yoa 6ee. aml j thought, as I l-.ad heard people talkin' a : great jeai aD00t Guvner Snyder, and what ! a great Guvner he was, that I would call and pay my respects till him " Here Pat took a reatj and began again . Ard eo n be goln to pniiadelfy, and a good long step it is lo go afootj and lhea jrjj go tQ Nevf York, and go aboard a ship, and sailed till ould ire!and, and here he took a long look at the 8ideboard sparkling with its well-filled decaniers when I see my ould mother, and all my ould friends, I'll tell them how I called on the Guvner of Pinsylvany, and how he was mighty polite, and give me a gas, cf brandy to drink his Honor's health." The Governor took the hint, and filled a glass, which Pat emptied as toon, saying "Your good health, Guvner, and long life till ye, and all your kith and kin 1" Down sat Pat again, and after answering a few kind inquiries of the Governor, he rose and spoke : "Wa'al, I 'spose I most be movia'. I'm goin' from here to Phila- ( delphia, and it's a long step to go afoot, and fronri tnere y g0 New yorkj and tlien y 0 aboard a ship to ould Ireland and there j.jj teli au my ond friends that here j cal!ed on ,he greal Guvner of Pinsylvany, and be gira me tw0 giasses cf brandy to dririk his Honor's health." Tne Governor was caught, and poured out tjie 6eCoiid glass, which loosened the other end o( Palg longue and he went over Ihe rigrr,arole again, ending with three glasses of- brandy ! ''Ah' said the Governor, ,fbut you have not had three glasses !" Pat was all cut up and cut down by this unexpected answer, lie pushed his fingers through his hair, dropped his lower jaw, and looked like a deeply wounded "gintle. j man" as he was. A happy thought hit I him, and brightening up he said, "But you would'nt have me tell my ould mother a lie, would ye ?" The good Governor was melted for a mo ment, and the third glass passed from the I sideboard into the longing bosom of ihe dry Irishman, who drank, and thus began : "A thousand thanks, Guvner ! the saints ; b,eg(J an(j U;e yirgm kape y0n ana g,Te you long l.te ana plenty ot sucn Dranay as , lhi vour Honor! and I'll be coin' to Phil adelfy, and it's a long way there afoot, and then " The Governor cou'.J 6tar.d it no longer, ! but half laughing and half-mad at the impu - dence cf iHt and his own readiness to be ' coaxed, he showed his guest to the door, and told him, a3 it was so far to Philadelfy, he had better be making tracks in that di rection without any more delay.

Reaching a high bank, he was again bhot j at by Indians, and leaning down he dis lodged a big 6tone, which rolled after him, until, the rock having blocked up a hallow place, Taylor crawled under and stayed till midnight, when he reached camp, after running the further risk of being shot by ihe setutries. Tub patriot John Adams, it is said, was designed for a shoemaker, like his father One day Deacon Adams, his parent, gave him some uppers to cutout by a pattern that had a three-cornered hole in it, by which it had bung upon a nail, and it was found that he had followed the pattern ex actly, triangular hole and all. The Deacon, upon seeing this, declared that John wasn't fit to be a shoemaker, and so he concluded to make a lawyer of him. A Patlandjer, rangling in the rain, was observed lo keep his line under ihe arch of a bridge. Upon being asked the reason, he replied: "Sure, and won't the fishes be crowdin' there to keep out of the wet, ye spalpeen?" Let no man be ashamed to -speak what be is not ashamed to think and to feel. A large heart expands the chest; it is a NUMBER"35. " t A Bad Bargain, Bnt a Good Joki.' .f Old Col. VV , formerly a well known character in one of the Eastern citie, was remarkable for but one passion out of lbs ordinary range of humanity, and that was for buying at auction any little lot of trum pery which came under the head ''miscel laneous," for the reason that it couldn't be) classified. Though close-fisted in general, he was continnally throwing away bis raon ey by fives and tens upon such trash. . In this way he had filled all the odd comers in his dwelling house and out houses with a collection of non descript articles, that would have puzzled a philosopher to tell what they were made for or to what use they could ever be put. This, however, was but a secondary consideration with the Colonel ; for he. seldom troubled his head about such articles after they were ones fairly housed. Not so with his wife, however, who was continually remonstrating against these pur chases, which served only to clutter up. the house, and as food for the mirth of the do mestics. But the Colonel, though he often submitted' to ihese remonstrances of his better half, couldn't resist his passion ; so he went on adding from week to week to his heap of miscellanies. One day while sauntering down the street, he heard the full, rich tones of his friend C , the well-known auctioneer, and of course stepped in to see what was being sold. On the floor he observed a collection that looked as though it mi;ht have been purloined from the garret of some museum, around which a motley group was assem bled ; while on the counter stood the portly auctioneer, in the very height of mock in dignation, remonstrating with his audience "Nine dollars and ninety cents I" cried the auctioneer. "Gentlemen, it is a shame, it is barbarous to stand by and permit such a sacrifice of property! Nine dollars-and ninety Good morning, Colonel! a magnif icent lot ol of antiques and all going for nine dollars and ninety cents. Gentle men, you'll never 6ee another such lot ; and all going going for nine dollars and ninety cents. Colonel W , can yoa permit such a sacrifice ?" The Colonel glanced his eyes over the lot, and then with a nod and a wink assured him he could not. The next instant the hammer came down, ana the purchase was the Colonel's, at ten dollars. As the articles were lo be paid for and removed immedi ately, the Colonel lost no time in getting a cart,and having seen everything packed up and on their way to his house, proceeded to his own store, chuckling within himself that now at least he had made a bargain at which even his own wife couldn't grumble. In due time he was sealed at the dinner table, when lifting his eyes, he observed a cloud upon his wife's brow. "Well, my dear?" said he, inquiringly. "Well ?" repeated his wife ; "it is not well, Mr. W.; I am vexed beyond endurance. You know C ' the auctioneer?" "Certainly," replied the Colonel ; and a very gentlemanly person he is too.' - 'Yon may think 60," rejoined the wife, "but I don't, and I'll tell you why. A few days ago 1 got up all the trumpery with which you have been cluttering up the bouse for the last twelve months, and sent it to Mr. C , with orders lo sell the lot immediately to the highest bidder for cash. He assured me he would do 10 this week at fartherest, and pay over the proceeds to my 1 order. And here I've been congratulating myself on two things ; first, of having got rid ol a most intolerable nuisance; and secondly, ou receiving money enough there for to purchase that new velvet hat yoa promised me so long ago. And now what do you think ! This morning, about an hour ago, the whole lot came back again, with out a word of explanation !" The Colonel looked blank for a moment, and then proceeded to clear up the mystery. But the good vrow was pacified only by the promise of a tea dollar note beside that ia ! knwATPr ihT--i should never mention it. nr . . "t" -,! Rather Expressive. That eccentric Dow, Jr., in one of his discourses in which he describes the contrast between semblance and reality, thus hits off a ball scene : "A woman may uot be an angel though she glides through the mazes of the dance like a spirit clothed with a rainbow and studded with stars. The young man may behold his admired object on the morrow ia the irue light of reality, emptying a wash tub in the gutter, with frock pinned op be hindher cheeks pale tor the want of paint her hair mussed and fuzzy, (except what lies in the bureau,) and her whole contour wearing the appearance of an angel jam med through a brush fence into a world of wretchedness and woe."
