I was nendinc some (lavs. nutAnany 3'cars ago, In a pleaaant little co-iatn village, and in a family that Had tnoro than common attractions to ono who loves domestic life a well ns myself. l ho little circle had in it more of real interest than I have often seen develop cd in the sumo number of persons. Tho lather of the family almost too young to feel that he was entitled to that honorable appellation was A line. frank hearted young mechanic, with a wido world of bounding life In his vein", and energy that, when fully aroused drove everything before lum, and a warmth of disposition that won him more friendship than it had given him of the goods of tho world. His wife, to whom he had been mar ried fiomo four vears. was flinrularlv beautiful They had two children tho ono a laughing, brown-cyed and brown haired little fairy of threo years. Her name was JiVcleen. 1 ho second was a crowning, laughing blue-eyed, plump little beauty of less than a year, prom iting to have all the charms of the older at her age. I was sitting one afternoon in a quiet little room, with my feet upon two chairs, reading a pleasant little book, in a state between asleep and awake my host away at his shop, a hundred yards off, and my hostess engaged in her household labors when 1 was thrown out of my indolence by a scrcum that brought mo to my feet like an electric shock. It was a woman's voice, and had in it nn excess of agony that cannot be indicated in words, so loud that it rang over that quiet little village?, nud brought every ono forth to ascertain the cause. I bprunj; to tho door that separated tho Kiuinir room from thediniiiuiranart- I ... i 4 a .....I ...I... tl.A .'liJ'.Ts. tl n ifltitiiiil minis uuu ran iiiu nnuiv uku luiivv. The youn; mother etoud-at tho. door with her lirbt Vorfr-tur darlU- vd- leou in her arms dyin. A brief aud hurried word from the bervun. told me tho bad btory. The little 'girl had ac companied a child-uncle up s Lairs, and whilo tho attention of tho older child was for u moment turned away, she sczicd a bottle ot corrosive tmblimate in alcohol, prepared for bug poison, and swullowed enough to tako away twenty such lives. The little thing had tottered down stuira, and tho mother had met her at tho landing with the empty bottlo iu her hand, und thu poibuu oozing from her mouth, and tho child all unconscious ol tho fearful thing blio hud done. Wns it any wonder that a fearful ohriek rang out over tho quiet villago, aud that al ready tho occupants of every house near wcro rushing toward the spot whero tho mother 6tood 1 But a few moments could possibly have elapsed since tho poison was ta taken, aud yet the effect was already fearful. Alter tho first shriek of tcr ror, tho mother had quieted to a calm despair for tho moment, and stood with tho child in her arms, making no effort for its relief; and indeed it becmed diffused through the iramo; the brown eyes had lost their lustre, the faeo was blackened as if aller death, and the teeth wcro tight set in a convulsive spasm that evidently would not pass away. I examined the little lost dar ling fur a moment, aa v that it waa hope less, and then turned away unable to bear that mother's agony. Tho little door was already halt-tUlod with villa geis, and sobs, aud moans, and lamen tations over the fate of tho dying child child wcro heard in every "direction, mingled with quick and hurried ques tions as to the manner of its occurence, and vain attempts at answering, which addod an oppreMlng csnfuaiun toae sadness ot the scene. Tho little play fellow's undo, who had been up stairs with tho child, and run instantly to call tho father, and but a few moments clupscd be furche sprang into tho middle of the group.

He desisted for a moment from his ef forts, and turned with a fierceness which had before been altogether foreign to his nature but no one who saw him afterwards forgot it.

When the tfyes opened tho father desisted; the little sufferer lay just alivo n his arms, ex hausted, its little lifo terjribly shattered, but saved.

A banker in Dubuque, whom we shall call .Mr. JJ , for short, found it nee cssary a short timo ago to suspend bu siness, and accordingly closed his doors, a. iva iwucu a cam w us uepo(iiors , in which he stated that ho hoped he would soon bo ablo to resume again. Tho day after Mr. B. had closed his doors, he was met iy a Jlibernian miuer, who had $ö,000 deposited with him, accosted thus: MJood morning, Mr. B. faith an' its well you're looking th'n morning, con sidenn' tho weather. But sure, it's sorry I am, Sir. B., to nee that card of yours in tho papers.

But on tho following day Mr. B. was star tled from his "pleasant dreams" bv the presentation of a cheek for $0,000, War ing the namo of his Hibernian friend.

To such uii explanation, together with tho new temptation of $4.600 additional, the banker could take no exceptions so he counted out the 0,000, in tdiort. But that was tho last of tho Irishman. The banker meeting him several davs afterwards, desired another cxplana tion. Och, tho truth is, Mr. B., it's myself that has been ashamed to ace yccs.

His request was immediately cum- lied with by a younger brother who m'cm well posted on the past career, and present mode of life of the oily 'convert.'

A red, MJroiner Ii a ioii mo ui uauu seemed beyond tho reach of mercy that was not infinlto in its nature.
