A light knock at the door interrupted the conversation. Anna cast a look of inquietude at her mother, for since the loss of their for tune no visit had broken their solitude. 'Go and open it,' said the lady. With a smile she obeyed, and the opened door gave entrance to a man whom she immediately re Cognized as the stranger who had assisted the poor; old sufferer. . The countenance of Mademoiselle Rerial at once assmned a grave and serious expression. Her mother perceived the change, but before she could make an inquiry in the cause, the stranger advanced,, and saluting her with, re spect said 'Madam, you are, I presume, the mother of ..,.0 ,V.J . Madam Revial made a sign of cssent, and pointed out a chair to the stranger. He took it and continued: 'Chance this morning brought Mademoiselle and myself together in affording assistance to an unhappy' 'Oh ! mother, interruptad the young girl whose neck and face was covered with blushes at this allusion to the morning's adventure, 'I have not had time to tell you about it. Do you remember the poor old man who gener ally took np his station at the door of our ho tel formerly ? He always wore a green band age over his eyes to conceal his face from the passers by, and held a small basket of matches in his hand.' ' 'Yes,' interrupted Madam Revial in her tuvn, 4I remember him well; your father al ways dropped some money into the basket when returning from Bourse. You always used to call him your poor old man, and you as little as you were, delighted in giving him everything that you could scrape together.' Well, since our departure from the hotel, we hare asked each other a thousand times what could have become of him.' ....... Yes,' said Madam Revial with evident in terest Well mother, I found him to-dav, at last, but in such a wretched state that I was really shocked. Stretched on the snow dying, ab solutely of cold and hunger; and without the assistance of this kind gentleman, he must have perished where he lay.' . Say rather without yours, said the young man earnestly. 'I could do nothing for I had lost my purse. To you, and ynu alone, he is indebted for life. 'But,' continued he in a different tone, seeing the color again mount ing into Anna's face, 'its not for the purpose of disclosing to this lady the secret of your good actions that I have followed you here; it is to request you to taUe the trouble of buy ing a bed and some other little necessaries for this poor child of misfortune. Here are a hundred francs, that you will have the kind ness to employ for this purpose. I pray you to believe that it 1 was not a stranger in fans, and on the point of quitting it this very even - ing, T would not take this liberty with per sons to whom I am unknown. I trust that you will excuse my request.' ' .there is no necessity to oner an apolocrv,' said Madam Revial; 'on the contrary, we ought to thank you for having selected us to complete a benevolent action.' 'Ivow, Madnn, added the young man, in a timid and hesitating manner, 'it only remains for me to inquire the name of my young sister in this act of kindness.' 'Mademoiselle Anna Revial.' A cry of astonishment broke from the stranger, 'The daughter of M. Revial, of Bor deaux, who lost his fortune by trusting in a friend, and died of griefs ?' Alas! you have but too truly stated the case. : How does it happen that you are ac quainted with these facts'?' '1 am Jules car sac, said the young man, in a voice scarcely audible. Anna grew pale, und went and placed her self near her mothers seat. A mournful si lence succeeded for a short time, and it was Jules who broke it. 'Ah! Madame,' said he suddenly rising, 'I perceive that I yesterday sent you my renun ciation of a life of happiness. This letter,' he repeated as he slightly touched it with the finger of his right hand, with a look of disgust 'permit me lo destroy it and to forget that it was ever written.' Looking from one lady to another, and seeing no sign of opposition, he tore it down the middle, and threw the por tions into the fire. He watched them until the flames had seized on every part; and then. as if content that it was wholly and irrevoca bly destroyed, he approached Madame Revial, and bent his knee before her, as she regarded alternately, with the utmost satisfaction, her daughter and him she would have chosen for her son-in-law, if the choice had been in her power. :-' . r.'- Or if the memory of this unhappy letter cannot altogether pass away, and it part of it most still remain in your remembrance, think only of the words which say. Ml your dauah ter and myself had been better acquainted.' We are acquainted and now know each other already as if we had never been apart.' 'I just now called Mademoiselle by the name of sister; let me call her by another name, not less kind, but more sacred that of wife. I have no fortune to offer her, but I feel ani mated by double courage and hope. For her for you, Madame, who will never quit us I will work with energy and determination, and I feel that I shall succeed in my efforts. Oh, deign to answer met -But you weep you give me your hand you consent to my request : . ; , ., 'And you, Anna, what do you say V asked Madame Revial, as she held out the other to her daughter. ' 'Have I ever any other will than yours, dear mother?' and she pressed the hand to her hps. . . , 'You consent then. Mademoiselle ?' said Ju les; 'then you will allow me to present this ring as a mark of our engagement .' lie held up a little ring set round with tor quises. . , . , It is Anna's ring!' said Madame Revial with surprise. 'Yes, mother,' said 'Anna, quite confused; l was obliged to sell it to replace tbe money I had received for my embroidery. . It was in purchasing it that I discovered your address, although you entered in the jeweler's book only the name of Anna. It is to the ring 1 owe the happiness of again be holding you.' ....,.' He took, as he spoke, the unresisting hand of the young girl, and placed on her finger the pledge of their union.' ' ' The same evening, in order to fulfil the be nevolent intentions of M. Barsac, who was o bliged to leave town for Bordeaux, Anna re turned to the old man's .lodgings. He was no longer to be found ; he had disappeared without pointing out his new abode. A month aftert in the humble lodgings of Madame Revial, a few were assembled to wit ness the signing of the marriage contract be fore the notary, who soon made his appear ance ; he was followed by an elderly man, rich ly attired. As the latter was not introduced, no person look much notice of him, for each was too much occupied with the ceremony for which they had come tagether. Madame Re vial was still an invalid, and had her daughter seated near her. The notary placed his port folio on the table, and took from it a contract of marriage, which he proceeded to read aloud. After having specified the little prop erty of tbe bridegroom, he went on to detail the fortune of the lady : 'Madame Revial makes over to her daughter the sum of 1,000 per year ' . You are making a mistake, Monsieur, in terrupted Madame Revial: 'formerly, indeed, I did intend The notary without paying any attention to the interruption, continued: '1,000 a year, arising from money in the public funds, for which here are surities.' . Saying this he displaced the coupons on the table, and Madam Revial, the daughter and Sules Barsac, all made a movement asita bout to speak, when the aged stranger arose and made a sign for them to remain silent Surprised at this interference, they awaited with interest the result of this strange scene. 'What!' said the old man, . with a broken voice, and addressing .Anna, 'what Mademo iselle, do you not remember your poor old man ?' While she was looking' earnestly at him, trying to read in his venerable countenance the marks of misery and suffering, he contin ued : 'You have then forgotten ten years of daily kindness? You have forgotten the third day of January, with the assistance you gave so opportunely the fire, the wine, and the wing of foul wrapped up in a piece of newspaper? All forgotten Well, that very piece of news paper is the cause of all my misery being at an end. ' In an advertisement which it bore, I read the intelligence that a French gentleman named Francois de Chazel, had been seeking in vain for his brother, Jacques de Chazel, ru ined, like him, in the revolution; and that, by his will, he had ordered an advertisement to be inserted every week for three years, that the brother might come forward and claim his ample fortune,. That Jacques de Chazel stands now before you it is I.. 'Without delay I set out for London, and only returned yesterday. Your notary,' he continued, speaking to Madame Revial, 'is mine ; from him I heard of the intended mar riage of your daughter. To that angel I owe my life, and the least I can do is to present her with a part of that fortune which, without her never would have reached my hands.' 'But, Monsieur,' said Madame Revial, with emotion, 'perhaps you have a family ?' 'Yes, Madame,' he replied, bowing low, as he spoke, 'if you will admit me into yours.' Ah, you have made part of our family for such a long time!' said Anna, pressing in her hands those of M. de Chazel; then with a ges ture full of naivette and grace, painting to her intended husband, she added in a low voice, 'It is ho who took you up. Do you recollect him : Ah ! you say that to me you owe your life; if you only knew how much I am indebt ed to you if you only knew it! But we will separate no more, and I shall have time to tell you all about it.' Jules came forward to present the pen to his bride, and they both signed the marriage contract. Formed under such auspices who can doubt that it was a happy one ? I0 A Beau Brummell amono the Worktxo me A correspondent of the Sunday Cou rier thus describes an eccentric individual at New Orleans: "We have a man here by the name of Dun can, who has a most singular taste in regard to clothing Bnd jewelry. He wears an im mense white broad-brimmed hat, nnd a gold embroidered suit of clothes, that cost, in Par is, $800. He has a gold watch chain that would fasten an elephant: five or six pounds of rings dazzle on his fingers; his boots are encased in silver coats of mail, and he carries a cane bedizzened with massive chunks of silver. There is an amiable bearing about the man that warrants me in considering his a most singular fancy, and not a charlatan love of notoriety. . He is a cleanly, hard-working stevedore, and the jewelry on his person is valued at $8,000, which he wears only on a Sunday. There is no dirty misanthropy about him, so often mistaken for true democracy, but a,. desire to gratify this odd fancy with some propriety. o Summary Punishment. The way they do things in California. The Paeific News has the following: 'A man was discovered on the bank of the river, two miles this side of Nicolaus, who had been shot through the heart On the collar of his coat was pinned a piece of paper, on which was written the following 'I caught this damned rascal stealing my mules and I shot htm. The dead man was not recognized.' Early Death. : . "Blesxd are the early called.'" . , Oh! who would weep , . When angels stoop to earth and bear the young And beautiful to lieaveiiT Sorely such are supremely blest! thus to be called Ere sorrow's blighting influence hath fall '11 and Crushed the young heart's holiest, purest feelings. How much more blessed than to live and bear Life's hitler woes, until all hope hath fled, leaving Naught but the anxious craving wish lo die. ' .. For what is Life? i ,. At best a dreary waste, an ever-changing sceue: . Mixed up with joys and griefs, of smites and tears. Which doth, alas! too oft obscure the soul's high purpose, Making it all unfit for Immortality. . .. .: Old Ags. - BY ALFRKD B.

The Forest Funeral. She was a fair child, with tresses of long black hair lying over her . pillow. Her eye was dark and piercing, and as it met mine she started slightly, but looked up and smiled. I spoke to her father, and turning to her, ask ed if she knew her condition ? I know that my Redeemer liveth,' said she, in a voice whose melody was like the sweet est strain of the Eolian. , You may imagine the answer startled me, and with a very few words of the like import I turned from her. A half hour passed, and she spoke in the same deep, rich, melodious voice. "Father, I am cold lie down beside me,' and the old man lay down by his dying child, and she twined her arms around his neck, and murmured in a dreamy voice, 'dear father, dear father.' -- - 'My child,' said the old man, 'doth tlie flood seem deep to thee?' 'Nay father, my soul is strong.' Seest thou the hither shore ?' 'I see it, father, and its banks are green with immortal verdure. . . -. 'Hearest thou the voices of its inhabitants?' I hear them father the voices of angeU falling from afar in the still and solemn night time and they call on me: Her voice, too, father. Oh ! I heard it then.' 'Doth she speak to thee?' . ! - 'She speaketh in tones most heavenly.' 'Doth she smile?' . . ' - An angel smile! but a cold, calm smile: but I am cold cold ! Father, there is a mist in the room. You'll be lonly. Is this death, father?' 'It is death, my Mary. Thank God." ' : Sabbath evening came, and a slow proces sion wound through the forest to the little school house.' Thero with simple rites, the clergyman performed his duty and went to the grave. The procession was short There were hardy men and rough, in shooting jack ets, and some with rifles on their shoulders. But with warm hearts gave beauty to their uushaved faces, and they stood in reverent si lence by the grave. The river murmured, and the birds sang, and so we buried her. I saw the sun go down from the same spot and the stars were bright before I left for I always had an idea a grave yard was the nearest place to heaven on earth and with old Thomas Brown, I love to see a church in a grave yard, for even as we pass through the place of God on earth, so we must pass thro' the grave to the temple of God on high. The Useful and the Beautiful. The tomb'uf Moses is unknown; but the traveller slakes his thirst at the well of Jacob. The gorgeous palace of the wisest and wealthiest of monarchs, with the cedar, and gold, and ivo ry, and even the great temple pf Jerusalem, hallowed by the visible glory of the Deity him self are gone; but Solomon's reservoirs are as perfect as ever. Of the ancient architec ture of the Holy City, not one stone is left up on another; but the pool oi Btthseda com mands the pilgrim's reverence at the resent day. The columns of Persepolus a -a mould ering into to dust; but its cisterns and acquc ducts remain to challenge our admiration. The golden house of Nero is a mass of ruins; but the Aqua Claudia still pours into Rome its limid stream. The temple of the sun at Tadmor, in the wilderness, has fallen ;4)ut its fountain sparkles as freshly in his rays, as when thousands of worshippers thronged its lofty colonnades. It may be that London will share the fate of Babylon, and nothing left to mark its site save mounds of prnmbling brick work. The Thames will continue to flow as it does now. And if any work of art should still rise over the deep ocean of time, we may well be lieve that it will neither be a palace nor a tem ple, but some vast acqueduct or resivoir; and if any name should still flash through the mist of antiquity, it will probably be that of a man who in his day sought the happiness of his fellow men rather than their glory, and linked his name to some great work of national utili ty and benevolence. This is ihe true jilory which outlives all others, and shines wilh un dying lustre from generation to generation imparling to works something of its own im mortality, and in some degreu rescuing them from the ruin which overtakes the ordinary monuments of historical tradition or mere mag nificence. Edinburgh Review. . Beautiful Extract. Do trees talk ? Hav they not leafy lungs do they not at sunrise, when the winds blow, and the birds are car oling their songs, play a sweet music? Who has ever heard the soft whisper of the green leaves in spring time, on a sunny reorning.who did not feel as though rainbow gleams of glad ness wr?re running throogh his heart? And then when the peach blossoms hang like ru bies from the stem of the parent tree when the morning glory, like a nun before the shrine of God, unfolds her beautiful face, and the moss-roses open their Crimson lips, sparkling with nectar that falls from heaven, who does not bless his Maker.

House of Representatives, when the River and " Harbor Bill was called up, says:,' : ' "'' " There was another scene of about as rich a nature in the House, as has been witnessed ; this session, in the debate that sprung up on' the motion to take up the Harbor . and River , Bill, in Committee of the Whole on the slate of the Union." It was confined to the mem bers of the Locofoco party, in '' which the in- ', terrogatory was propounded by Mr. Burt tu Mr. McLean, of Maryland what is Demoo- ' rncy, and what are Democratic principles? Mr. McLean replied that Democratic princi ples in 1844, was . 'Polk and Dallas' and in. 1848, 'Cass and Butler,' a definition that , caused the Whigs evident mirth, but caused ; divers wry faces and scowling brows on the part of Mr., McLean's political friecds. ' An adjournment however, touk nlace before anr other satisfactory definition ensued, many of1 the faithful trusting, during tbe debute to-day, Mr. McLean ould give a more satisfactory ; definition of their principles than he attempts ed yesterday. : This .debate was caused by csr. McLean referring to the opinions of Mad-, ison, Monroe, and others, in support of 'appro-' priations for rivers and Harbors, against whicli," Mr. Burt, nnd all ' such nulliliers are bitterly apposed. The interrogatory of Mr. Burt, how-' ever, was as unlortunate tor turn as tt has proven difficult of , solution by Mr. McLean; and it was a little amusing that ha two demo crats who said anything could agree as in what Democratic principles consisted. The Whipa looked on and laughed, and the galleries, with one accord, joined in the merriment. Here is a most satisfactory definition - Decision of Character. Decision . fc character is one of the most important of hu- man qualities, philosophically considered. ' Speculative knowledge is not the chief end of man, it is action. We may, by a fine educa tum, learn td think most correctly, and tallt mot beautifully; but when it comes to-action, if we are weak and undecided, we are of all beings the . most "wretched. . All -mankind think themselves wchk. beset with infirmatiea and surrounded, with dangers, . They want above all things, a leader, wilh that boldness, decision, and energy which, with shame,. they do not find in themselves. .' 'Give us man shorrt the multitude, "who will step forward and lake the responsibility, - He is instantly the idol, the lord, and the king above men. . He, then, who would command above his fel 1 W8, must excel them more in energy of will than in power of intplleet. V
