L. OTIS. My mother was a widow, rnd I her only daughter, Agnes Brown. She was very beautiful, and quite young, only ixteen years older than myself. My father had left us poor; but sho had not ben a widow long before she' had ufvcral suitors, and when I was about fourteen years of ng. sho married Mr. l ., j grntlcman of wealth, with four children. They were: Kdward, who was iu California; Charles, Loti- tia and Jack. Jack, tha youngest, wa ubout my ago. Tor one vcar we liiod happily to irethur. and then ray step-fatlior diod. leaving his cbildron and rays:lf with cnual Dortions. My mother followed him in a few months, and we were left in the guardianship of a youn-' lawyor, who did not pretend to tu to any inter est ill us beyond his legal duties. The old. house-keeper managed tho domestic concerns, and we all attended acbooi, except Kdward, who was still in San t rancisco I soon bean to feel that I was in an nncomforUblo position. Lctitia would hare loved me, and was never inton tioiiallr unkind, but her brother let mo I . I . A . I 1 ! Know uiai uiey consiucrea ino an in truder, an alien in their home, who had taken a daughters portion. Daily slights, unkind hints, a contemptuous coldness, and a complete exclusion Irom all tho family consultations, or conn dential intercourse, left mo cruelly alive to their state of feeling towards mo. 1 was a Yery timid girl, without trenglh to bear up, cither against others, or my own self-distrust. 1 knew myself unwelcome, yet dared not go -a s a . 1 at. away. 1 wasieariui 01 leaving neuer, even so bleak as this, for tho wide, wide world. 1 tried to make them lovo me; but 1 found that tho gentleness and patience v. a is strugiricu ior, wcro caueu arjccincss, im'good will, olliciousncss; and my si- ctite, snllenness. I wtu not one who cculd compel affection, I found, to my sorrow. I endured a wholo jear of this mise ry, and then üdward camö home. lie wa welcomed with jov by all but my self. I bad nover been him, and therc- bro feared him. 1 felt that if ho were my enemy too, I must become despt rato enough to leave them, thutigh I had no relatives to go to. Thcevening of Edward's return was spent in question and answer, among the children ot tho same lather. I bat apart. Edward had ppoken kindly to me when he nrst came, calhng me sis ter Agues; and several times he tried to give mo a chanco to enter into the gen- ral conversation, as any polite gentle man would. But I wns loo uncertain ot in - hearers to talk, so 1 became a listen er only. 1 judged, from what! heard and taw, that Edward wus a quick ten.pered, optn hearted man, a gentle man in feeling, yet used o roughing it in a new country. - The next evening, mv new brother akcd me to give him some music. .My hamb trcmbied, and grew o told, that 1 continually made mistakes; I endeav ored to remedy them, and so grew con fused. At la:t 1 tried a lively, easy waltz, in bopts of recovering myself Jack began to beat time. It distracted me. "You never can keep time with Ag ues," he said, "s. ealwaysbreaks down." Edward was standing by mo; 1 could seebythe mirror before me, that he turn ed quickly, and gave Jack an angry look. It only confused me the more, and I bung ed again. "1 here I told you eo!" cried Jack. "Hear that!" "And how dare vou beat limo at all, you uncivil little monkey?" Edward burst out. "Ect me hear any more ol your impertinence, und I will put you out ol the room! 1 was -too frightened to go on, and left the parlor." iy room was directly overhead". I heard Edward's voice, in deep tones, talking very earnestly. As they came up blairs to retire, 1 heard him say to Eetlie, as they passed my door : "She is in a confounded uncomforta ble situation, any how, and if those boys make it as intolerable lor her as they have dot e since I have teen here, 1 .hull see what to havoduiio with them!" JIo then kissed her lor good night. I laid a happy head upon my pillow I had a trioitd. The next da- I went to the library for a book. Edward was there, very busy writing. Jack was getting down aoiae volumes, anil as the one I wanted was beyond my reach, I ventured to ask bint to gel it for me. 1 was under i:s band tho moment 1 snoUo. llu came down the steps without it, and tood directly buoro me, btating into my luce: "1'i'tiy who was your last waiter: he aid. 4 It is an honor 1 decline.

I escaped from the room, quite afraid of my flerco detendcr. It was Charles turn to meet with re- proof next. Ho wus asking Letitia what had becomo of bis coat. I bap- lie leaned on his chair, and, paused a pen cd to know, und the did not. I moment, while we all looked at him in replied: breathless anxiety. Aftet a lime, be "The tailor has taken it to alter.

I cared much more tor him than lor Jack. 1 felt myself flush painful as 1 said: "I only asked because ho is coming a"ain. und uesireu worn io ue ten about it." As usual, I fled to my room to con ceal my tears. But I wasatraid 1 might bo missed if I stayed too long, und thus excite Edward's dangerous compassion, I washeslmy eyes, and hastened down to find the brothers lit louu ana nign dispute, which bushed as I entered, knew by tho look of hate whk hCharle bestowod upon me, that I was the su ject of it. I saw too plainly that Ed ward's championship was dotn mo no good, and that I was sowing dissension in tho family. I must go away. This state of misery was killing me. I had becomo so weakly nervous, that any thing sudden or unexpected, made mo scream out, or faint away. I could not bear this much longer, and live, oven though Edward's kindness had filled my wholo heart with boundless gratitude and lovo for him. While I was trying to summon courage- to consult him on tho subject of my future residence, he was suddenly culled away from home for somo weeks. Tho timo of his ab sence was a timo of Cittcrest trial to mo. Ono of his Iriends, Dr. E , oAcn visited at tho house, and entering into Edward's feeling of pity tor my forlorn state, (which ho perceived as clearly as if he had told it in words,) ho often showed me liulo polite attentions.

Ho had al ;vays brought them for mo before; but now, when I expected them, and was so foolish as to look glad when I saw them, thinking that, aller all, ho wa not turniu from me, ho gave them to Letitia with an air that seemed to sa "You need not suppose they are for you!" 1 was so weak, and so overwhelmed with shame and grief, that for u mo ment I io 1 1 faint. 1 sank dowa upon the nofa, and Lettie fanned me. Just then Charles came in. "Thut actress is at her interesting tricks aains!" he sneered.

They would sa' the tsickness was nil a pre tence. Ii E , 1 hoped, would think so; yes, 1 hoped it, for if my faint ing was not 'a counterfeit,' what inter pretation must he put upon it?

Dut 1 determined to be down on Thanksgiving Day, when Ed ward was expected home; utid when the day arrived, with all its bustle of prep aration lor gueels, and their reception, I was so much better that I dressed to be present at dinner. When word was sent to my room that dinner was serv ed, I hastened down, wondering that Kdward bhould have arrived without my knowing it, 1 had spent most of the morning listening lot him on tho stairs. I did not think they would have dinner without him, and i had t try h:ird to keep nt) joy, at iho idea of hoeing him again, jvitliut bounds. As I quietly en tered tho dining-room, 1 thought 1 saw him standing before a picture, looking at it, and awaiting tho gathering of the family.

It was laudanum which so benumbed me, and I soon fell into a short sleep, full of horrible visions, laudanum fan cies. I was awakened again by a nervous tremor. Dr. Goodenough wasstill talk ing : "Very likely, very likely. Ho is a handsomo fellow, and ho is no more real relation to her than you are, or than I am." I turned, rnd moaned, in an effort to speak. "Agnes ! Agnes 1" said Dr. Good enough, arousing me. "Look at old daddy Goodenough, there's a darling. Do you know me ?" "Yes. yes !" I said. "Pat mo to sleep again, dear doctor. Please do, and let me forget all about it.'" "2s"o, no," he said, "look at your old doctor and nurse, who had you in his arms when you were but a small mor sel ! Can you listen to your old friend? Bo a good child, and try to be strong as a lion. 1 have something to tell you. which you must brace yourself to hear.' I sprang up in nervous horror. "Oh don't, don t !

All pale and grieved ? 2'o, no, my gills uio rosy, ain't they ? Now smilo a bit, for 1 have good news." At this moment there came a quick knock at the door, und without an in stant's pause, it Hew open. Edward entered, crying, in no subdued voice, to some detaining person outside. "She'll bo idl r:ghl the moment she sees Im safe, and not all smashed up yet." 1 reached out my arms, nnd was in stautly clasped in his, gen My, ai'ection ately. When I sank back upon my pil low again, my eyes caught ono glance of Dr. E 's pale, watchful faco, but the shrank irom him, and encounter ed Dr. Goodenough's angry dignity.

IM ward then apologized to Dr. Good enough, ami soon made friends with him. He gave him an account of his delay in order to help others, and his arrival at homo ten minutes alter that unlucky messenger had caused such eoiistei nation. After somo hours, rest, the doctor said I might riso. Edward carried me out to the littlo verandah, overlooking our own, and a long row oi neighbt gardens. It wan a very warm autumn dav. o hail had frosts; but branches of the climbing roses still hung nbou the liiriit ironwork arch, with buds ball e.ipautlej. I was in Ktic'i a deep reverie of ban piness that 1 did not observe Edwards absenting himsell, and leaving me alone Nor did I know that tho person who came and stood behind my chair in i lence, was Dr. E . I felt that the mo ment had come when 1 could consult Edwavd r.boitt my l'uturj plans. wantod his approval of them, before thought them all out. So I said, plung ing at once to the bottom.

Jealousy is as cruel as tho grave; not the grave that opens its deep bosom to receive and shelter from further fctorms tho worn and forlorn pilgrim who "re joices exceedingly and is glad" wheu he can nnd its repose; but cruel as the gravo is when it yawns and swallows down from tho lap of Iuxurv, from th summit of fa mo, from tho bosom of love, the desire of many eyes and hearts. Jealousy is a two-headed asp, biting backwnrds and forwards. Among the deadly things upon the earth, or in tho the sea, or dying through tho deadly night air of malarious regions, few Arc more noxious than is jealousy. And of all mad passions, there is not one that has u vision more distorted, or a more unreasonable fury. To the jealous eye, white looks black, yellow looks green, and tho very 6unshino turns deadly lur id. There is no innocence, no justice, no generosity, that is not touched with suspicion, save just tho jealous person's own. And jealousy is an utter folly, for it helps nothing, and savos nothing. If your friend's luve is going, or gone, to another, will your making yourself hateful and vindictive stay it or bring it back? If it is not leaving you, is there no risk in rendering yourself so unlovely? Commend mo to all bercaven bears rather than to a jealous person, especi ally a jealous woman. Thero is neither reason nor mercy in her when once thoroughly struct: through with this fearful passion. She renders herself altogether repulsive by it an object more ol dread than allcction to those who havo Jovcd her best. And if she rcg:un not her self-command, and re turn not to her senses, sho frequently destroys utterly thcattchments sho most prized. Jler iriend may; indeed, retusc to forsake her; but it will be duty ui;t bids him stay; and never will he be able to forget what an abject thing übe wis once appeared. Iut let not any too rigorously judge the conduct of a jealous woman or u jealous man. Itemcmber that the ma niac sutjirs. Io bo sure, the suffering is Irom selfishness often it is without a shadow of a cause; but still it is sull'er- and it is intense. Pity it beai with it. You may yourself fall into temptation. It is a sorer curse, a more certain and fatal blight to the heart on which it seizes, than it can be to thoso ag:iiii.t whom its spito is hurled. Then, wlnie nniio should bend too far to the whims of jealousy, all should bo patient with its victims; and aiso should bo watchful and carelul that it enter not their own heart. Dicken.

Her bed-room was charmingly fitted up, a loop alcovo covered with rich l'ersian carpets, filled with luxurious cushions and embroidered coverlets, taking up ono side of it. On the other side was a light green and gold bedstead, covered with fratizo curtains. Tho tiolet table was extremely pretty, dressed with muslin and lace, alter a fasti ion; a rer sian looking glass, shaped liko a sun flower, is mother of pearl, hanging abovo it.

Numquauiu ro- JionamT ' Juv. 1,21. The origin of tho organ-grinders jus tifies their extinction, as does also the doom with which they are threatemed. Tho raco is derived from Jubal, the sixth in descent from Cain, who was "tho father of all them that handle tho harp and organ," (hero noto the accu racy of description in the word han dlu.) Tho seed of Cain, who destroy ed his own brother, may with justico to destroyed in turn. Later in history a trace of the raco is detected in the patriarch's pathetic out cry against the "instruments of cruel ty" in his sons' tents. In Egypt and in Pharaoh's timo tluey seem to have been swept away. Egypt was a wisely governed country. Had they existed, that prince might have been spared nine of tho plagues, sinco an hour's in fliction of this ono must have softened the rock of his hard heart, and forced him to send the tribes trooping forth to tho desert, with-tltdr minstrels at their head, playing tho rogue's march of the period. In that age, purely, organ grinding was ono of tlie lost arts. There is hope, then, that it may again becomo so strengthened by tho cheerful predic tion, that in the latter daj-s "the sound of the grinders shall wax low." The law permits the destruction ol a nui sance. Urgan -grinders aro a nuisance. It is, therefore, law ful to kill them. Vide Judge Shaw's Decision ad fin. I'ublic policy requires their extinc tion. Iho race consist chiefly ot Ital ian refugees, banished for turbulence from their own country, making a trade of revolutions here, and revenging themselves by tho murder of Music, for their inability to ucslrv order. It is therefore, courteous and polite iu us, as a nation, to kill them. Humanity pleads for their abolition. They are a wretched people, born out of time, who rear a wretched progeny. It is then, generous and merciful to themselves to kill them. Political economy demands that they should perish. They are wholly use less, never doing a hand's turn of work, though many a hand's turn of play. It is, therefore, prudent for society to kill thcra. Upon, this foundation of reasoning may be built a strong tower of author ities iu favor of their extirpation. That rigid and moral generation, tho Puri tans regarded the organ with horror, as tho Devil s box of pipes, even when used for sacred services. How much more would they havo been moved with holy zeal for the destruction of bis wandering emissaries, who bear the abomination from door to door. Shakspeare makes tho practical geni us of Othello speak with contempt of hearing -a brazen candlestick turned " in evident allusion to grinding organs It is true that Lord Bacon composed a work known to scholars as tho Xo- vum urganum or cw organ. JJul this only prove tho haired of th:t great and wise man for old organs. The French style, them "orgues do barbaric," or barbarian organs. To banish them and their barbarian sup porters is one of the first duties of a civilized people. Having seined tho lawfulness, hut inanity and prudence of ridding the world organ grinders it should ba con sidered how this may bet be done. Not. perhaps, by individual efforts. Tho remembranco of suffering might darken an act of justico in revenge.- Nor w( ul I it sullico merely for the Stato to put a stop to those they have already, would but increase their pow er of mischief. Thero aro wier plans, too, tuan that of execution upon tue scahohl, which might create a morbid sympathy. For example, mako them the instruments of their own dedruc- lion, by sett'mg them, in some ecldded place, to poty each ot her to Uca tii. ur they might simply be exiled to lunis. Tho publw ear is large and patient; tho need of this reform once forced in- to it, a proper plan will not bo wanting. Then will discord bo driven from the land, ana peace ana quietness return; whilo the grinding organ shall decorate tnubums, and bo wondered at by oui lcscendauls as the last and most cruel of the instruments of tortwro that dis graced an age calling itself refined.

An Anecdote with a Lessen, Two painters were employed to fres co tho walls of a magnificent cathedral, both stood on a rude scaffolding fron tho floor. One of them was so inten unon his work that ho became wholly absorbed, and in admiration stood off from the picture, gazing at it with in tense delight.- Forgetting whr ht was, h moved back slowly, aurvoyinjr critically iho work of bis pencil, until bo had beared the edge of tho plank upon which he stood. At this critical, moment his companion turned sudden ly, anj almost frozen with horror, bo held his imminent noril: anothor instant and the enthusiast would be precipita ted upon the pavement beneath. If bo spoke to him, it was certain death; if ho held his peaeo death was equally sore. Suddenly bo regained bis presence of mind, and seizing a wet brush, flung it against tho wall, spattering the beauti ful picture with unsightly blotches of coloring. Tho painter flew forward, and turnod upon bis friend with ficrco npc raiding; but btarted at bis ghastly face, ho listened to his recital of dan. ger, looked shuddering over the dread space below, and with tears of grati tude blessed the hand that saved him. Justßo. wo sometimes fret ahsnrhnd un on tho pictures of tho world, and in con. templating them, step backwards, vn- conscious ot our peril, when the Al- miguty, in merey, dashes out the btau tiful images, and draws U9, at the timo wo are complaining of his dealings, in to his outstretched arms of cornnassion, and love.
