With an eye, downcast, yet glowing,
and a firm, raised hand, Fannie wrote
her name, and gave him the card in
'-Thank you. You've done a great
deal to-day, and this is'nt the least."
"Stop at moment!" cried Fannie,
blushing. "You ought to tell me your
namne, too. Perhaps I may hear of it
hearafter. I shall, if you are strong
and bold."
"Don't ask me that," he exclaimed,
redtoning. "I should have to tell you
if you asked me, and I don't want to
do that yet. lut if you'll only let me
write to you once in a while, and tell
you how I am getting along; or, if you'll
read what I write--won't you do it!
You need'nt fear any thing. I'll never
sign any name, until I can sign one
that you have heard of. Don't say
no, for 'm bound to do it. 'Twill help
me along so much. Good bye !"
And in an instant he was out of sight.
For a little while we looked at each
other without exchanging a word.
"Well, this is an odd adventure.
Only think of your talking halfan hour
With a ragged treet boy !"
"I am not sorry for it," replied Fan.
nie, quietly.
"You have no cause to be sorry,"
said I, rather warmly; and then, after
a pause-"Only think, Fannie, if this
savage young Orson should turn out
to be your Valentine at last!"
"Pehaw, Carrie! you don't know
what you are saying. Let us drop
the subject. I wonder, though, if
we ever shall hear of him again. Don't
you hope so?"
"Certainly," said I, and then we
talked of something else.
The first part of my story has been
so long, that I must hurry over the
rest, and let Fannie's.letters tell it all
in a few words.
Several years pasae by. Fannie
had received one or two notes from
this reclaimed Orson, reporting his
gradual success, but they are in her
own possession, and I cannot show
them to you. One letter that she wrote
ito mae, while I was in Vera Cruz, will
;be enough to explain ev-ery thing, and
TIl wind up my story with that. I
-have som,e others here, giving the sub.
ject a passing mention from time to
-time, but none so full as this. As you
wilt perceive, it was written under the
excitement of strong curiosity, but it
is really provoking that she did not
delay sending it to the post office just
<me hour !
" Dear Carrie-Just now I amn in
sad perplexity, and though I know that
all will be settled in one short, hour, I
cannot help sitting down and making
you a sharer in my troubles. And to
punish you for your long silence, I
shall send this letter before the cause
of my perplexity is removed, so that
you will remain in suspense until you
make yourself entitled to an answer
and an explanation. If you sake any
interest in my afluiirs, this may secure
me a letter from you beforeo many
days are over.
"You cannot have forgotten our
meeting with young Orson, as you call
bim, for I have occasionally written
you an abstract of tihe reports of his
success, with which he sometimnes fa
vors me. Only read now this note,
which I have just received from the
"' If you have read my letters from
time to time, you must know that I
have finally succeeded in mastering the
lesson of life which you placed bsefore
my eyes. You first taught me that a
real soul could exist in one so ignor
ant and wretched as I then was, ad
that this soul could only be developed
through severe mental labor. I found,
aiso, that painful bodily delving was
necessary before I could have an op.
portunity to exercise my mind, and I
-struggled through it. Then, there was
the work of many lust years crowded
into a few, but I succeede-1 in that,
also. When the preparation was over,
I found that success must be toiled for,
and I have grasped it-finally, the po
sition for which I strove, I have gained
--all through your impulse.
"'I could not have worn myself
thus for mere success in life. You
must know that there was another
motive--you, who saw my rude na.
ture conquered by your own noble.

"'Nothing but the thought of you
could have carried me through thet pasi

deolaration to you. In one sense, i
is not presumptuouis, for I move in the
mame social circle with yourself, and
copmltit- W e are no strangers to
ecttth other except in name. But I
might consider it presumptuous to ask
equality from one who knows my for
ater condition, if I were not sure that
the same high mind and world-scorning
spirit, which then sent words from
your heart, to mine, cannot look in con.
tempt upon what you yourself crcated.
"'They say that you are engaged
to another. I would know from your
own lips whether you love him or me.
In two hours from this noment I shall
call upotn you and request an interview,
Then I can tell you my name, I will

fuse, even in your own mind, until
you know who and what I am.'
" So, Carrie, you are a true proph
etess. Our Orson has become a Val
entine !

that, the course is suflicient ly plain, but
it is hard, and I do not know how to

"-And that I cannot, would not

not, have sho'iwn himself a year later
-or earlier?
"Good-bye. I can't wr'te any more.
In faet, I cannot do any thing just

This, sir, is all that I know. Fannie
never would tell me the rest, but al
ways put it off by saying that, I should
know the secret at, the right time.
Now, I suppose you are convinced
that it i.: not the spirit of mere retalia.
tion that prompts me to tellt this story
of your wife. She never loved this Or
son, though she reclaimed him from
vice and degradation. I have told it,
sir, that you may better apircciate
the prize which you have secured.
"Thank you, Mrs. Granger. I sup
pose now, that it is no more than fair
for inc to tell my story also. You
may find it, somewhat interesting."
"Do not understand mne as calling
for it, she replit'd quickly.
"Still it may interest you. Years
ago, when I was a poor, ragged boy,
little dreaming that I should ever call
the aristocratic Walter Granger my
friend, I strolled out of the city one

"Wait, a moment, Mr. Brengle,"
said mny lair auditress. with a quick
smile of surprise.

Tradinmg witta Slives.
The laws of' South Carolina in regard
to trading wit h slaves are very rigid.
The penalty is not less than one months
imprisonmnent, and one hundred dol.
lars, and may be, in the discretion of
the Court, one thousand dollars, and
twelve months' imprionnent. The
law requires, too, that the permit from
the slave's master to trade shall be in
writing and be produced on the trial.
No shop keeper or distillh r is allowed
to sell or give spirits to a slave under
a heavy penalty. A slave seen goit.g
into a shop with an article and coiming
out without it, or seen going in with.
out an art'ele and coming out of tihe
shop with it is proof snificient to convict
the shop keeper of trading with a slave,
Tihese are severe laws and it was founnd
necessary to pass theni to break up
trafficking with slaves.
It is known that there is a great
number of persons who do not, seem
to regard these laws. They trade with
slaves without thinking of the mischief
they are doing. Chi(kings, eggs and
fruits of all kind aire purchased of
slaves without reflecting that it is of
ten stolen property they are purchas
ing. It is seldom that poultry or Iruat
is sold in the village of Greenville by
slaves that is not stolen from their
owners or some one else. Every cor
rect man, and women, too. should be
exceedingly careful to purchase nothing
of a slave without a written permit to
Merchants especially should be care
ful to observe this well. Otherwise
they are encouraging the slave to steal.
It may be true that a nerchant or shop
keeper would not trade for any article
of produce with a slave. But if he will
sell his wares and goods to a slave f'or
money, he thereby encourages tre
slave to steal the money or something
else to get the money with. It mat
ters not that the trader may know the
slave to be benest, Ile should consid
er that he is violating the law, and
running the risk of crimninal prosecntion
and likewise lie may be mistaken as
to hounesty of the slave.
The facility which slaves have of
stealing from their owners and others
makes it the sacred duty of every,
well disposed and hontest man to be
particular in receiving or purchasing
any thing from a slavo without the
written consent of his owner. This
particularity, the other day, on part
of a townsmian, saved us a peice of sil
ver. A nd a few mmonths ago this same
honest sort of particularity sav'd us a
fine shoat which had been captured by
a neighsbor's slave and canrr'ied into
market. \Ve understand likewise, if
some others had been eqnally careful
and p~rudenct, anothe rs peice oft property
might, have bieen saved, which was
sold by onme of our slaves. We' have
frequently heard of' the complaint in
the country amongst our fihrmers that,
they could not keep their turkeys and
chickens and eggs until the)y sawv prop.
er to sell them or eat them, that they
were all stolen and carried to the v'il
lage. In connection with thisivery evil
of which we are nowv complaining, WV e
remember a good joke which hiappenied
many years ago. A negro fellow eanme
into the village with a fiat turkey gob
bler,-and sold it. lin a few mioimeints
afterwards he stole the tui key again
arid sold it again. Th'iis he repeat ed till
he had sold thle gob~bler three times,
arnd then ihe took him back borne and
lef't him i where he had first. stolen himi
from his mistre ss. If' all roguish nre
groes were as shrewd arnd considerate,
this kind of traflicking would soon be
broken up . -Southern Pautriot.
