From th. G,Uo Aoe. j Tfi story of Marieo Evans life lia been ariouly (olj. I'erhsps this is the uioft Authentic version of what bis never ; been authoritatively (old by the actora in it: Mr. Lewos, the 'distinguished and ciever uiognpncr 01 uocuio. arm a ten knonn authur of philosophical works, hail been unfortunate in his rnirriaUe re lations; so, too, had Mrs. J. eves; they were a most ill - a ior led pair, and she hook off the bond which galled her, and became unfaithful to her martial vow !ut .Mr Lewes himself was Miuallv guilty of infidelity to his wile, and the I recollect a certain holiday was ap law of England does this cqus.1 justice to, proschin;;, and I had been skinning man and woniao, fix: it absolves neither j around to pet a little tnonev to have a from a marriage vow on account of the time with on that day; but the files and infidelity of the other, unless the one purses were acainst me. It was but two who asks freedom can claim to have days prior to the anticipated holiday. and been faithful to Iim or her own vow ' hadn't nary a red. Itemembcr thi, The rnarriago tie between this disloyal ( boys, when i add that on the strne after husband arid wife was broken in fact noon I came into the house, when lo I but not in law. The) had long lived there on the floor, totally overcome by acparate lives when .Mr. I.ewcs met and m libation', lav mv rerccled dadilv, learned lo love Mrs. hvans. puss r.vaus was a person 01 singularly unattractive person, ria photograph of ber is to be found anywhere, ar.d the shrinks from contact with strangers, for the ia painfully conscious of her own lack of personal charm. It wa her mind and heart which won Mr. Lewes' love, and the nobility and purity of this most pore spiri lifted that love into a reference he had never before felt for woman. His love was returned and the question of their future was dicued by thce loving friends and friend y lov ers. They asked the advice of the wi.est and best of their friends i'j this emer gency, ana at last, alter much thousht 0( and discussion, it was decided by them- ;t. selves and their counselors that t In - be ing an exceptional case, it must be dealt with in an exceptional manner A I em I marriage between them was irnpo.-sible. bat since tbe affection which united them was no youthful pissiou, but the .'table bond of love founded on mutual conge niality and respect, tl.ev would be justi Bed in uniting their lives outside of the law, inhcy were stront: enough to bear me social coo-reiucriccs wnien must nec esarily follow from the infraction r,f the law. i his they resolved to do. and from that time they hate lived happily, con tontedly and hopefully together. Alt their best friends approed of their courso, and no truer wife to her hu-band, no mote tender mother to his children for hhc has none of her own is to be found in all England, than this brave uii'l true woman. Of course, in n society so rigid as is tlm of England in the outward observ ance of the moralities though it i whi'pered that, under a decorous regard to the conventionalities, plenty of indec orous act are committed ami inked at Mich a course us that of Mr and .Mri. Lewes puis them outside of general ho rial recognition. .Mrs. l.cwcs never vis it tliu houses of other people ; she ru ceives only her t-iccial friends at her own. Since she has a hicved fame, she might he received hy many ladies who, before this, would have refused her en tree to their homes, hut the neither de sires nor will accept their proffered re cognition. She did not overstep the conventional laws of society without due consideration ; t-liu knew the prieo die must pay for a happy home md .1 satin tied heart, and is content tu pay it ; nor does t-hc litid it too high. It was :i per ilnus experiment, and one that no woman, unless hho ho an strong, ns brave, and 11s pure, and as hum of holding her lover as Mis Evans, would do well to repeat. Though Adutn llcdo was iho firi-t work which hiought Mrs. Lewes promi nently into notice ns n writer, it was by no means her first effort. Very low peo pin, like thu Ilarntii'ss T.iutphias, achieve fame un nil author without i-t-rving 11 pre vious apprenticeship it t literature. "Tim Inti.'ilrt," which made thu namo of the English wife of thu (icrnmi baron a household word in two continents, was iictinlly the very lirt attempt its author matin at writing Shu was devoted to painting, hut thu oils and colors she used, being pronounced in part accountable for her failing health, wcro taken from her hy the physician's order, and nIiu was literally driven to her pen to fill up her idle and heaily hanging hours.

Hut .Mrs. Lewes had no such experi unco of rapid success in the path which she had for years been tin untiring and diligent worker, translating, writing es says and stories, which brought her no reward in fame, iiuil hut small compensa tiou in money. "Adam lledu" first made her fatuous, and her subsequent novels, "The .Mill on tho Floss, ' ".Silus Marner," "Felix Holt," "Ho I.i'," and ".Middle uinroh," bavo steadily niignicntcd her reputation. Each has its troop of ad lliirers, who consider it hrr bi-st work, rlr. (ireeley regarded "Situs .Marner" as her finest effort, hut few would bu found to agree with him.

Nick used to tell with great merriment an in eideot of his boybaod. To preserve the inivor of the relation, we will record in Nick's own language, an I onlr rearet that we cannot accompany it with bis in imitable gesticulation. "My old win," said Nick, "a a gen eral thing, was a pretty steady oil gent, but once in a while be would net oblivi ou. anil wsler nni ho of it. )and beside him lay six tb ning hall lay dollars which had rolled from his pocket. l'oy, I've been an honest man all my life, but once while a boy I commit ed a theft. I hooked one of those half dollars. Thinks I to raj self, the old man's been on a jamboree, and won't know how much he's' spent, and will never niis it Hut mark )ou. tbe next tnnrii'-ng I and my two brothers were summoned into our ia her s presence. The old man's face lowered. I thought uf the half dollar, and knew that a storm wa brewins. "Hoys," said he, "lat night when I came home I had six half dollas. One em's gone. Your nether didn't take There's teen no one else in the hotie. Which one of you took it?'' We all protested our innocence. "Hoys," said the old man, "that Inlf dollar never walled off, and I'm going to Cod out which one of you have it." Turning around, he look down from tin: wall an old flint lock blunderbu-s. I This he deliberately loaded with powder ,.mi bni-k.hot in our r.re.-ence : then fas teriing it upon the table cocked it, took a eat behind it, holding the string in bir hand, and in solemn tones addressed us thus'y : "Bojs, I am going to discover the thief and punNh him at the same lima You must each of you blow into the muzzle of that gun. When the guilty one blows, off goes his hea I. Now, then, jou have a chance; will you own up or I linn," said the old man to my oldest brother, "have you got that half dollar? ' 1 "No, sir " j "Take a blow." j He did so in safety. "Nick," (eh, boys, I tell you, tbe chills began to crawl down my back), "got that half dollar?" j "No, sir," said I, with a deGant swag-' ger.

When your foot has struck bottom, there is a faint impression in your mind that you have stepped into an open strive, but he removes it by solemnly observing that he never taw u boot fit quite as good as lhat.
