;- THE FATHER AXD SON.
An Incident of Ileal Life
" BV PAUL CBSVTOS.
One night last winter, wliile pursuing my
way along one ot tue most obscure streets in
Boston," I was aroused from s the revery I was
indulging oy hearing loolsteps at my side.
Turning quickly I beheld a young girl, appar
ently not more than twelve years old, follow-
ui as if she was anxious to sneak to me : and
when I observed by the dim light of a neigh
boring street lamp, that she was poorly clad,
trembling, thin and Dale. I asked her. in a tone
oi Kindness, what she wanted ?
mi you please, sir,' ' she "replied, in a voice
almost choked by sobs, yet which struck me
as soft, and peculiarialy silver-toned If you
please, sir, will you go back :with me just a
little way, ana see my lather, -who is very
'What is the matter of your father ?' I ask
ed, afraid of being deceived. ,
,'0, sir, I don't know,' she answered, in the
same tone as before; .'but I fear he is going
to cue. uo sir, oe so good as to go and see
him.' ,.. ,
The earnest manner of the broken-hearted
girl made me ashamed of having doubted her
at hrst, and I resolved to comply with her re
quest. ., I was in just the mood for some ad
venture where there was an opportunity of ac
complishing an object of benevolence, and will-
ngiy tollowed my little sorrowful truide back
to her home. .. ; .,
The girl led me into a small and somewhat
dilapidated house, and invited me to ascend a
small and narrow staircase. At the head of
the stairs I heard her eronincr about until her
hand touched the latch of a door, which she
opened, asking me in a low voice to follow her
into the room. , ...
I did so, and found myself in an humble
apartment, where scrupulous neatness seemed
struggling against absolute want 1 The dim
light of a flckering lamp ;which stood upon a
smau caoie near tne door, revealed to me the
scanty furniture, which I found to consist of a
few chairs, the table already mentioned, and
among other . articles of minor importance, a
bed in the retired part of the room. ."" . ..
The girl stepped along before me, and poinl-
ea to tne oea. ;
Come this way, if you please she whisper
ed; 'here's father.
'As she approached the bed of the sufferer, to
apprise him of my presence, I silently brushed
away a tear which the sight of her grief-worn,
palid cheeks, and eys red with weeping, caus
ed to start through my eye-lids.
" My youthful guide bent 6ver tho sick man.
laying her cheek close to his," while her arms
encircled his neck, whispered something in his
ear. A moment after, she arose, and placing
a chair at the bedside, begged me to ap
proach. ' - " ' . "
beating myself in the chair she daced for
me, I took the hand of the invalid, and gazed
for the first time full upon his face. I shall
never forget the spectacle. Although much
emaciated, his features betrayed the spirit of I
pnua in tne miast oi poverty, of resolution in
adversity, and of the stern endurance, during
his moments of agony, which dwelt within
I was about to address Lim. when he cut
me short by speaking first
'You hnd me in a bad condition, sir,' said
he,, with a smile, I thought rather bitter.. I
can't deny that I am actually crushed bv sick
ness and misfortune; this you will readily be
lieve, for I could never have stooped to ask
assistance of. any one, had I not been perfectly
helpless. B.ut even now, sir, I doubt wheth
er A would not havetlied before asking a favor

uj any oue, nan u not Deen lor the' broken
hearted girl who conducted you hither.'
A cannot describe - my sensation on these
words, so full of pride and candor, from thn
lips of a man who might be dying, - It was
plain to be seen that the invalid had once seen
better days, and moved in circles of refine
ment, and I was sure that his intellect was of
the huest order. , ' It was owing to these pecu
liar circumstances of the case, that. I became
deeply Interested in my new acquaintances.
and felt anxious to relieve them, and at the
same time learn something of their history
A Flo- v-..: :.l , t. -. r y.
.wii.womv niiu me inv&iia ior a lew
moments, he intimated that he would willintrW
let me into the secrets of his history, pro-
viueu me girt was not present to listen.
Accordingly I directed 'little Hettv.' aa the
old man called her, to go for a physician of my
acquaintance, telling ber.I would stay by her
father until she returned. - The nicht was not
cold, and I felt that it would benefit her body
and divert her mind to take a walk in the city,
with the ways of which she was verr well ac
quainted: -. , - r . -.
Hetty had scarcely left tha house, when
the door bell rung.: The . sick man sairl that
the lower part of the house was not occupied,
and requested me to see who was at the door.
Carrying the lamp in my hand, I proceed
down stairs. I found a well dressed man
at the door, who seemed surprised at seeing
me in such a place.
Does Mr. larley reside here?' he asked
'I don't know as ha does, I replied. .
'Well, then. Is there more than nni fnmilr-
living in the house V ""
1 here is only one family, I believe.'
'And you don't whether the name of the
family is Darley or not,' said the stranger with
BiAiue.- , - -
I saw the drift of his remark, and renlied
L T . . i -., . ' r
mm, x was not acquainted with the house, nev
er having been here before.
How did rou become reduced ?' t
'By a series of misfortunes, of which I np.ed
not tell you by degrees I lost, until I became
lortunulcss, quite lnendless.'
Is the girl who brought me. here, your on
ly, child?' .1 enquired. : - ..; t ...
'Ah, it is of that I would spenk,' sighed the
sick man, pressing my hand 'I hadfanother
child a son' . '
And he is dead? , 1 '..".' -
. 'Nobut ho is dead to me. T lost him
through my pride my worse than folly 1'
'Where is he now ?' ...
'Alas, I know not' ' ' ,t
'Has he deserted you?' ' ' -"
'JNo l drove him from" mv door: Tf Woo in
the days of pride andafHuence that I disown
ed him and cast him off penniless.'
The old man pressed his feeble hand upon
L:-l . ..'n '.. ... . . r .
ins urow, as n to sunns inroDDing, and clos
his eyes with a suppressed groan.
: 'I loved my son,' he continued after a pause
'I was proud of him, too, but even he could
not change the firmness of my will. It is that
which has estranged us.'
'In what manner?' " '" '
'Can you guess? Had you known Edward,
you would have discovered ere this. His gen
erous soul, so unlike my own, was totally free

I owe my ruin. - He had no idea of the aris
tocracy of wealth, and when he found iimong
the laboring classes a maiden whom he thought
uiigui raaKe pim nappy, ne enred not lor her
humble condition,- but resolved to win her
heart and hand.'
'And you opposed him ?' "
1" irmly bitterly blindly opposed him!
exclaimed the old man. He was a Maior. an'd
I could not enforce my commands, but I threat
ened, little thinking my - threats were in vain.
I told him in a moment of calmness that the
hour which saw him united to the rxior girl
he was wooing, saw him no longer my son."
But his soul like mine was above compassion.
and unlike mine it scorned the allurements of
wealth. He believed that toil and poverty
were honorable, and that worth was oftener
with tbem than with luxury and riches. He
trusted that he had found a priceless jewel in
tne person oi tne numble girl he loved, and
he boldly, unhesitatingly offered her his hand.
annougn he Knew that 1 would disinherit him.'
And he married her?' ""
'Yes and from that time I have never seen
him. He provided a home for himself and
wife in Boston and wrote a letter. In that he
begged me to excuse he did" not say forgive
his acting against my wishes, but said not
a word not a syllable about being received
once more as my son and heir. He ended by
inviting me to visit him in his new humble
abode, and expressing a desire that we might
live on friendly, terms. I was too proud to
visit him, and he never saw fit to cross mv
threshold again.' . : , -
'And he continued to reside in Boston in
the same city with you his father?
. 'Yes, for a time; but he was noon and
could not bear, I presume, the sight of those
of his old associates who ceased to know him
when he was no longer able to live in style.
He scorned them, it is true, but he hated the
sight of them, and therefore removed from the
city.' - J, .. ', . ,,- !
'And he never came to you or wrote to von
i j n. -, T J

'Never. The last I heard of him Jie was
m Hevr York, and in tolerable circumstances.
O, what a triumph it would be to him could
he see me thus reduced shorn of roy pride
and wealth! r Ytm see I am now .left alone in
this unfriendly - world, with the child who
brought you hither. As my riches failed me,
Demg swept away by misfortunes, my only
friends dropped off on by one; and now sick
ness has reduced me to the hopeless, misera
ble condition in which you behold tne.-. There
is not an individual living who cares for me
and mine! You have already shown some
Kinaness to us tor which heaven reward you
but you are the only one only one. -
The sick man turned his eves onwards. tlin

viiracu tncui wun a sign. -
At this moment I observed that the stran
ger, who at first appeared to take no interest
m tne old man's story, had at length drawn
his chair closer to the bedside, as if to listen.
'My pride is humbled now,' resumed the in
valid, after a long pause. I think I mirrht he
brought to ask relief of the very son I have
disowned. " 'O, God, how how just has been
my punishment ; to think he whom I cast off
is now, very probably, able to lauch at mv fall
in the midst of his growing prosperity. - - But
think- you he would do it? Think vou mv

uiy misery , -
'JNo, he would not,'
'Yes for what does not a son owe to hi fat h
er especially such a father as you were once
to me : My mother was taken away when I
was young, and Hetty but an infant but you
filled her place you educated tne you did
every thing in your power to make me happy.
Now I am come to repay the debt as freely.
I have a dear and happy home in New York,
to which I will remove you and Hetty, as soon
as you are able to leave your bed. r Till then,
I will see that you are made comf rUble here.
I thank Heaven for putting it into my heart to
come back to Boston and search you out. .

Scarcely was he seated, when, as I ap

subject pf his history, in a manner which show

A few weeks since, in coming down the
Nurth river, I was sealed in the cabin of the
magnificent steamer Isaac If ew ton; in conver'
sation with some friends. It was becoming
late in the evening, and one after another,
seeking repose from the cares and toils of the
day, made preparations to retire to the berths.
Some, pulling off their boots and coats, laid
themselves down to rest ;. others, ia the at
tempt to make it seem as much as . possible
like, home, threw off more of their clothings-
each one as his comfort, or apprehension, of
danger dictated. ' " . ; r .
- I had noticed on the deck a flnelooking lit
tle boy of about sixyears old, following around
a man evidently his father, whose appearance1
indicated him to be a foreigner, probably .a
German a man of medium height, and res.
pectible dress: Tlie child was unusually fair"
and fine-looking, handsomely featured, with
an intelligent and affectionate expression pf
countenance ; and from under' his little Ger-
man cap fell his chestnut hair, in thick, cluster
ing beautiful curls. '..
After walking about the cabin.for a short time,
the father and son stopped within a few feet of"
where we were seated, and began preparations

while the little fellow was undressing himself.
Having finished this," his father tied a hand
kerchief around his head to protect his curies, .
which looked as if-'the sunlight from his young
happy herrrtalways rested there. This done, I
looked for him to seek his resting place; but
instead of this he quitely kneeled down on
the floor, put up his little hands together, , so
beautifully childlike and simple, "nifd resting;
his arms on the lower berth, against which he
khelt, he began his vespar prayers. -

" This was the training of some pious mother..
Where was she now? How many times had
her kind hand been laid on those sunny locks,
as she had thaught him to lisp his prayers ,
