Ow. tingauieed French novelist, is already well- m;
eve known, and it may not be necessary to men- pl
on. tion here the fact that this eminent writer is th

aw brought about this extraordinary conversion
rit- may be less familia to our readers, and, wish- Jn
me fug to please them-as we always do-we pub- t
,at lish the following most touching lines, ex
as tracted from a letter recently addressed by on
Paul Feval to Father Rey, wherein be briefly yo'
x- relates the incidents connected with the change 8

Paul Feval writes thus: at

by I am besieged from every side for a sketch of be
25 the history of my conversion. In case I ashould m
as yield to do this, it will be by reason of the prc

at my father, ms I understand, would desire me to
oer say how this event has come to pas. Let me,
tat then, tell you the fact in a few words. It
,n, transpired in a most simple manner, for I was hem
to indeed unworthy of the manifestation in my fro]
as behalf of a miracle. stre
be I have enjoyed a tolerably brilliant career, wat
tse and was considered an honorable and happy bar
,s. man. A multitude of my fellow creatures did lite
ed me the honorof holding my name in high esti
ue mation, but I kTew and despised myself. O, i
ly It came to pass that I was caught, quite un- t
x awares, by the mania of a financial exploit, tlfy
us which, in a whirl of excitement, carried me tOer
in off with a board of stolen Ire:s-.re. I te I, not to I
b from any preoipitous height, still it was a fall. of t
oe In my prostrated condition I looked around me tior
ly for those whom I always believed to be my hol,
y. friends; but it was in vain. In this utter de- Yin
sl solation a few helpless, beloved beings whose n
It vitality greatly depended upon my own exist
in anoe were my only companions. And at this edi
d juncture I did not possess even the courage to and
a. tace pov-rct., or to reconcile myself with the of t
In unevitable, for the longing to die grew strong pop
iu me. Wtill possessing what once a few called the
'talent," I panted. Bot oh I the sad thing. tore

then that I raised my suppliant voice to Al- Roch

I realised the truth that he had merotiully

And then the first lears of repentance brst form
from my eyes; these were even sweeter to me thdt
than the morning salutation of my beloved and,
mother, who in the days of my early childhood eeedi
roused me from my oradle with a kies. The of tb
