I do not wish to pain von. but my decision is to settle at the North. I am of age, and all my sympathies are with this section of the Union. I do not think I could be happy at the South.' Having lived here so many years of my life, I find that my opinions are no longer the same as in boyhood. I hope this decision will not grieve my mother and sisters, whom I/ihall always hold in most affectionate remembrance. My prospects are very good at present, and I have no need to call upon you for pecuniary assistance. With muchlove to my mother and aisters and Wllie, believe me, Respectfully your son, CLIvFroID Owax." As Mrs. Dudley closed the letter she said, "I am afraid he calls me mother only in name, and that I have but little share in his affections. Poor, little fellow Lw1ow well I re member the night you brought him home to me, and how delighted the children were with their new playmate and brother." "I have no patience with him!" rejoined Mr. Dudley. "He has disappointed me more than words can tell. I am afraid he is both proud and selfish !" Who was Clifford Owen, whose conduct had so disturbed the genial temper of Mr. Dudley, and thrown a shade of sorrow over the inva lid's brow t As husband and wife continued thoir con versation througlh many hours of the nighthis history could well be gathered from their words; but thle story was a simple one, and ean econ be told. He was an orphan; a poor, friendless boy, who had often passed Mr. Dudley's door. How Willie and the little forlorn, motherless boy first met, was beyond the recollection of either; but for two or turre years, seldom had a day passed without an interchange of kind words or friendly smiles between them. On his way to school, or at the corners of the street, or ou the steps of the omnibus, or at the door of the little chapel, somewhere and at some time, Willie Dudley was sure to meet his friend. He shared with him his lunch, he took him portions ,f his dinner, he gave him pocket mone.y, h taught him his own simple prayer. These were a tow of the many ways in which Willie became bound iup ill the humble conm panion of those early days. Clifford was entirely alone in the world, strange as it may seent. And how many of the little urchins that till our streets, are, like hint, without homes or friends or parents He knew well tlhat he hadt none in the wide world to give him love or food or shelter, amd that two lonely mounds in St. Patrick's grave yarl held the mouldering forms of those who had once cared for him. It had never ocurred to Willie that his fa ther or mother could or would assist his poor friend, so that their attachment had continued for a long time unknown to either parent. At last there came a crtaisl in the orphan's fate. He could no longer bear his joyless, miserable erlatence, anl had joined himselr to a travt.lng eircus company: nay, had even smid himms.i:f to one of the managers on certain eonditio: >. F.r a stated length of time. It was when he told all this to Willie on the eve of his departure from the city, that the generous heart of the merchant's son felt how very dlear was the poor, barefooted orphan at his side, aol how their lives had blended to gether until it was agony to think of parting now. Thoat ilght, almost dellrious with iis sorrow, Willie c·rmimed all to his mother's keeping, mand inmllored her, for the love of him, to take thie filtetless orllan hmone and make him lailppy ith her care.

Thus it happened that the little orphan be same a mesber of the didley family, and greup with Willie more like a twin brother Mrs. Dudli's heart opened to reesive the lonely child, and sheaoon loved him with all a mothe's love. Mr. Dudley oontributed every O thing within hs means to the edAotion and ad vanoement of his adopted son but an elder brother of bh,. a Mr. Robert IDadley unmar ried, and living t the North, offered to give Cllord a complete collegiate edueation, and nducaed Mr. Dudley to entrust him to his care. Devoted to monn-mahkn, rad Imbued with ranting the fanatical notlo of the day Bobert Dad le had infuaed the some spirit lntioClifford's mind, until he had destroyed within him all vanger love for his SBothern home and friends. Mr. Dudley had only Clifford's interest at heart when he hadgiven him-p to his brother, re. and did not dream that the affectonatelioy could ever become a cold and selfih man. " How deeply I regret," said Mr. Dudley to eoodi his wife that night, as their conversation drew g, towards its olose "that I ever allowed my bro ther's wishee to inflnence me in regard to Clif ford. Regrets, I know, are useless; but I fear we have lost a Son I" He stooped and kissed his wife as he spoke, then rose and paced the long, quiet rooms. Mr. Dudley was a rich banker now, and Clifford would have been gladly welcomed to ma, all the privileges of a son ; but the young man sweed felt a resentment against fortune for having once cast him, a forlorn and helpless child, at the feet of Mr. Dudley, and he imagined that the man of wealth and influence had conUted every dollar and every trouble the orphan boy had cost him. He had been away from his home and from her whom he called mother, at the very age bado, when his heart most yearned for love and ten ad dernes. and when his nature was most sus c Oeptible to all their gentle influaece; now he determined to steel bhis heart against all softer pleadings and lead a lonely, joyless life. Between Willie and himself, however, there still existed the closest friendship; and the fIrt former would not yee in his friend any of those Ity faults which grieted his mother and elicited his father's disapprobation. Mr. Robert'Dadley being now dead, even Wil lie hoped that Clifford would return to his old home, and he could not believe that pride a alone had made him reject all offers from his father, and kept him beggared of his love and Crlu. confidence. That night, as Mr. Dudley bade his wife good night, saying, in a distressed and disap r.I pointed tone: "I am afraid we will have to give him up, my dear"--Willie, in his own Sroom, was pouring out his heart's affection for Clifford in a long, closely-written letter, the RARD last words of which ran thus: "We will not Poor give you up, old fellow !

"You remind me, my children," she said, " of the beautiful figures of Faith, Hope and Charity which I have sometimes seen; es pecially asmy Blanche is, to-day, as white as the marble of whiebthe group is sculptured." Willie caught his mother's meanidtg, and i with a look of mnngledreverence and fiiaebief i' aised his hands 'nd eyes imploringly to n heaven; Kate, with a radiant smile, stretched out her arms towards the distant, future, as d though she saw and fain would grasp its gold en promises; while Blanche, extending her white hands, with a look of peace and love, seemed imparting blessings upon all earth's lowly children. It was a lovely group, and a well might fill a mother's heart with pride; for while playfully personating the heavenly virtues, they had unconsciously typified their own loving natures. d CIIAPTER IX The -Lonely Heart. The bright, new life opening before Ellen's a view with such joyous hopes and innocent ex pectations, changed itself to a bard and sad y reality, whose bloom and beauty were all con cealed within her uncle's grave. All her art - less efforts to win her uant's affection had a been coldly thrust aside, and no stranger could d have been more indifferent to the pour girl's ,r grief and desolate conditioun - f One morning, Ellen was asked rather ab raptly by her aunt, "what she meant to do with herself." a The question both surprised and grieved her; for she had thought, or rather had hoped , that her aunt would receive her as her dead 0 husband's legacy, and bestow upon her a I, mother's love and interest. Not that the young a girl desired to be a burden to any one: but her r orphan'd heart so longed for affection and e kindness, that it ached at this cold casting off ii " If you are not going back to Ireland," con k tinned her aunt; "you can hardly think of staying here doing nothing." - "O, no, Aunt Margaret," answered Ellen, "I am very anxious to earn something towards n my support, so as to be as little expense and trouble to you as possible, only as yet I had a not deterihIned what to do." P, " If you are able to teach." continued her aunt, "I know one of the school-directors s- very well, and I will speak to him in the mat i- ter. It is just about time to make application, is for the new teachers will be appointed towards the end of this year." d Ellen thanked her aunt and expressed her willingness and satisfaction at the suggestion. - " I should be very happy to obtain a situa 5, tron in the schools, for while my salary would ,r be of assistance to you in the household, I could still have leisure to assist you in many ways." r. Mrs. Noonan nmadsle no reply to Ellen's at Sfeationate arrangement', but, seizing the firat it favorable opportunity, silently left the room. d Ellen sat for a time, musing over the new prospects before her, and shrinking instinct ' ively from the burden fate seemed to force upon her. And what young girl, with refined e and tenner feeling, does not hesitate to leave the sanctity and shelter of home to enter upon - a publio lite, however restricted its duties may uf 8he knew that as a teacher in the schools of i, the city, there woqld be much to arose and wound her pride-muoh that every tree wo . man hesitated to meet and which she would L most willingly beared. Every Director had t the right, she kne, to comment upon her co l tions, and diotate his own peculiar views. Every newspaper in the city was in the habit of classing the body of teaochers as "the fair crestores," whether they presided with dignity over their scholars, or congregated at the City n Hall to receive their very moderate salaries. e "Quite a flatter among the fair creatures," n was the usual style of introducing the maid ens, wives or widows, whose sore necessities d forced them into public notice, and whose sor , row-laden hearts, alas ! too often fluttered with d "'hope deferred," and whose eare-bordened lives robbed them too frequently of all bloom or brightness. It was natural that Ellen, in her orphan 5 hood and grief, should feel that life's new duties wore the form of sorrow's cross, and a that the realities of the present were far dif iI ferent from the visions she had formed in the a ip'st. he thought of her island home,bcrniother's g love thaft lhad always brightebed existence, Sh,,vev.-r dark its clouds amight be; and now ,w vvei'ytlthiiig wise vi ciaauged.

A bed sand one solitairy chair ad been its only futrniture the night she- was Ifrt in troduced to her unele's home; but Ellen had since added a little-table, a couple -of snowy urtalans and a floe engraving of the Sinless Virgin, "Mother of Him who islaviour of all," Cwhose lovng eyesseemed-to look upon the -orphan girl with that tender pity only felt by a mother'. heart. "Other hearts have been sad and desolate," thought Ellen, as she looked at her treasured picture and realized the beautiful meaning of all those symbols of her faith. It is to incul cate hope and resignation that-the Church seatters these simple tokens of the Saviour's love and the Virgin's sorrow through the hum ble dwellings of the poor or the stately man sions of the rich. In this ease. the lesson was not lost; for Ellen felt new strength while looking towards the picture, and a patient ac ceptance of the moment's trial which made it seem comparatively light. Seeking her aunt again, she entreated her to allow her to be of some assistance in the household duties of the day, but, as usual, met with a htilliunganswer. "I do not need you in any way," was the hard reply, ," I prefer to do the work myself." It seemed to Ellen that her very presenee in the house annoyed her aunt and ruffled her tiper; so she concluded that a visit to the Widow Brown would.'be far pleasanter than remaining listlessly it home. She had already been several tames to the widow's 'ottage, and had always met with a kind welome. - Mrs. Brown had often entreat ed her to repeat her visits, for her lonely heart yearned over one wlbQthad known her boy. Aunt Polly, too, bad taken a fancy to the young girl who had been so kind to Jim, and always greeted her with so earnest "Howdy, Miss Ellen, glad to see you. Mis' is right in there." It soothed Ellen to-day to hear the kindly spoken words, while the. wiclow',s smile of welcome, made her feel that she had done well t. come. She found iMrs. Brown engaged in unpacking herson's trunk; and Ellen could readily under stand how every moment spena in such a task, added new pain to the mother's heart. Shirta that she had made for him, socks that she had knit, every article called up his image vividly before her and awoke fresh grief and tears. "My dear boy's-things!' she said to Ellen with a umonrntnl smile-"Strango what a sad pleal ore there is in looking over them again!' Ellen sat down beside her, helping her re move the clothing from the trunk and folding up each article as the widow laid it aside. Pausing in her labor the widow said : " What an aimless thing life is now! " ften when I think that my boy no longer needs me, I pray that my pilgrimage may be short." Then bowing her head over one of her son's garments, she wept bitterly. " If I on!y had his body !" she said at last. " It seems to nie tLiialoss would not be quite so hard to bear." How true and natural was this feeling! El len sympathized with the sense of desolation that came to the mother whenever her thoughts lingered on that fathomless, ocean grave. Poor human nature! It matters so little where the body rests, since it is not that which we love and prize so fondly; and yet how much greater seems our lose, how much deeper our regret, If we may not claim the little left uas here on earth!" It was this that made both Ellen and the widow weep in unison, although each heart had its own peculiar sorrow. Mrs. Brown mourned not only because her son was not, but also because he slept so far away. She could not water his grave with her tears, nor plant bright flowers upon the precious sod; and when at last death should call her hence, she could not lay her head near his in earth's last narrow home. Ellen wept as she recalled the grassy mounds of earth beneath which her father tnd mother rested, and it seemed now that even to near them would make her less friendless, be lonely, sad. (To be continued.) BzISOP POTTER ON NUNS AND SISTERS OF CHARITY. - Dr. Potter, the Protestant Bishop of New York, has a very clear idea of the importance of Nuns and Sisters of Charity in the Church militant; and he has great anxiety to have a large number of these holy women under his jurisdiction. We make these remarks on the foundation of a speech whi4. Dr. Potter delivered at the Episcopalian convention held in this city a few days ago. But Is not Dr. Pot ter, in his desire for Nuns and Sisters of Charity, aspiring after the impossible ? If th RIt. Rev. gentleman will make inquiry of Catholic Nuns and Sisters as to the means by which they were attracted to pursue the convent life, and by which they remain cheerfully in their vocation forever, he will get two answers: first, that they, the Nuns and Sisters, firmly and absolute ly believed the Charch to be Infallible, and, second, that they And the Sacraments of the Church to be real channels of di vine grace to their souls. Dr. Potter could not reject either of these answers as apsuficient. The reason is each of them Has accomplished the effect assigned to. it as a cause. And a&lance at both of them, i';4 will convince any one that, in opera tion, they are competent to produce the as signed result. But Dr. Potter's Church has neither Infallibility, nor Sacraments. No one on earth, certainly not Dr. Potter himself, believes that it is Infallible. This universal disbelief is a criterion of truth. Therefore, Dr. Potter's Church has 'no In fallibility. Itis the same thing as to the Sacraments. The Protestant Episcopal Church has no Sacrament of Penance, and it has no Sacrament of the Blessed Eu charist. It totally repudiates the ideas of Confession and Absolution; and it looks on the doctrine of the Real Presence as a mere Roman superstition. Therefore, it has no Sacrament of the Eucharist. There fore it has no Sacrament of Penance. The Episcopal Church thus naked, how can it have institutions of boly women ' The thing is utterly impossible. Thu case then is, that if Dr. Potter means to have Nuns and Sisters of Charity, he mast have In falitbility and Sacraments. The former gives certitude as to salvation; the latter gives all the grace and strength the soul requres,.-New York Bt. Peter.
