Bold and impudent,' haid Margaret to herself, as she sal alone in her oui apaitment. 1 knew slia thought it, for 1 have seen it in her looks; but she always treats mo well externally, and I hardly thought she would say. it. 1 know .she was vexed with hciself for speaking to me, one day, whin sl.o was in the nsidst of a circle of her fashionable acquaintances. 1 was par ticularly ill-dressed, and I noticed that they stared at me; but 1 had no inten tion then of throwing myself in her way. Well,' she continued, musingly, 'I am not to be foiled with cue rebuff. I know her better than she knows- me. for the busy world has canrassed her life, while they have neter meddled with my own; and I think there are points of contact enough between us for in to understand each oiher, if we once found an opportunity. She stands in a position which I s'liall nev-er oc cupy, and she has more po.ver and 3'renglh than I; else she had never -tood where the does, for she Iiasshap ed her forluno? by her own uiuided will. lier fnce was not her fortuup, e.s most people suppose, but her mind. otic litis accomplished whatever she has undertaken, and she can accomplish ninc'i ri.or?, for htr resources are ur from bf;n' developed.

I can incite her to a development of her powers of usefulness. People will lis ten to her who will pay no attention to me; and, besides, she has the time and meuns to spate, which 1 have not." Everywhere in Europe they were talking of you, Mis. Walters.' said a lady, who had spent many years abroad, 'and adopting your plans for vagrant and industrial schools, and for tho man agement of hospitals and asylums. I have seen your name in the memorials laid before government in various foreign couutries. You have certainly achieved a word-wide renutaticn. Do tell me how your mtcution came fiisi to be turned to that sort of lhing. I supposed you were one of our fashion able women, who sought simply to know how much care and icsponsibiliiy they could lawfully avoid.and how high a social station it was possible to attain. I mn sure something must have happen ed to turn your'life into so. different a channel,' Nothing in particular, I assure you," reiurued Mr. Walters. 'I came gradu ally to perceive the necessity there was that 6ome one should take personal and decisive action in those things ihit it tras so customary lo neglect. Fond as men are of money, it was far easier to reach their purses tlun their minds. Our public charities were quite well omlnwcd. hut no one nave il.em that attention that they needed, and thus evils had crept in that were oi too l.'i.'liAtt imnortanoo.

"LmMt torn km Iw lam! confess myself at f.iult in mv judgment of character for once.' 'Indeed, madam, replied Mrs. Wal ters, I hae no doubt you judged me veiy correctly at the time you knew me. My first ideas of the duties and responsibilities of life were aroused by Margaret Winne; and I recollect that my intimacy with her commenced after you left the country.' M-irgaret Winne ? Who was she ? Not the wife of that liule Dr. Winne we used to hear of ojcaMonallv ? Thev attended the same church with us.'l hoU'ctc?' "Yes; she was the one. We giew up together, and were f.tmiliir uith each other's faces from childhoid; but this was about all. She was always in humble citcumsfuice. as 1 had myself been in early life; and. after my mairi age.I used p js'tiveiy to dislike her, and to dread meeting her, for ho w.s the only one of my former aiquainlnnces who met me on the same terms as she had always done. 1 thought she wish ed to icniind me thai ne were once equals in station; but 1 learned, when I came t. know her well, how far she was above so mean a thought. I bald ly know how I canie first to appreciate her, but we were occasionally thrown in contact, and her sentiments were so beautiful so much above the com uion stamp that I could not fail to be attracted by her. She was a noble woman. The world knows few like her. So modes', and retiring with nn earnest desiro to do all the good in the world of which she was capable, but with no ambition to shine. Well fi ted, as she was, to be an ornament in any siaiion of tojiety, she seemed perfectly content lo be the idol of her own fnmf !), and known to few besides. There weie kn- subjpots on which she had not thought, and her clear pereeptions went at ouce lo th bo'.tom ot a subject, so that she solved simply many a ques tion on which astute philosophers had found thcr.fehts at fault. I came at last to regard her opinion a'most as an oracle.

She was called from lit: family in the prime of life, but they who come after l.er do asuredly tiso up and call her blessed. She has left a fine family, who will not soon forget the instruction of their mother.' Ah ! ye?, there it is, Mrs. Wallets. A woman's fpliete, after all, is at home. One may do a great dtal of go.l in public, no doub'.as you have done; but don't you think thai, while you have devo'ed yourself so untiringly lo other affairs, you have been obliged to neg lect vour own family, in order to gain time for this ? One cannot live .two lives at ouee. voo know.' 'No, madam, certainly we cannot live two !io at once, but we can tfle.tn a much I. truer harvest from the one which is bestowed upon us than wo are accustomed to think. I do not by any mean?, think that 1 have ever neglect ed my own family in the preformauce of other du'ies, and I liusl my hild ren are proving, by their hearty co operation with me, that 1 am not mis taken. Our liist duty, certainly, is at home, and I determined, at the outset, that nothing should call mo fiom ihe performance of this lirsl charge. I do not think aiivlhiit't can excuse a moth er from devoting a largo portion of her life in personal attention lo the chiluien Uod has given her. liul 1 can assure you that, to those things which I have done of which tho world could take cognizance. I have given far less time than I used once to dvoto to dress aud amusement. 1 found. by systeinaliztu evervlhinir.that my lime w.is more than doubled; and certainly, I was far better fitted to attend piopeilv to my own family, when my eyes were, opened to tho responsibilities of life, than when my thoughts weio wholly occupied by fashion aud display."

REVOLUIIONARY EEEOES. OEXEItAL MARIOS. Finncis Marion was a native of South Cnrolina, bom in 1732. He was the youngest of .six children.

He h .d early an inclination for the sea. He was engaged in terrible conflicts wiih the Cherokee Indians; and afur the war with them xvas over, he lived quietly on nis plantation till 1775. He was elect ed to a Captaincy, his first service in which office being an expedition against Foit Johnson, an Island near Charles ton.

The last shot was filed by Maiien. which is said to have gone entiiely through the flig-ship, kill ing and wounding five persons in ils pro gres Tlie British left badly used up. After the battle, Governor Rutledge gave Marion his own sword. Marion wa n.red for hi-s patience wi h" the mil iia; he drilled ihem admirably.
