WritUnfor the Winclicbtcr Home Journal. BY FUIU!Y JOHNSON. . CHAPTER I. Charles Betts was a man of the ivorld, and of course an enemy to its peace and purity, lie was hand some, talented, agreeable, and a man fif honi i'. His wagers were always aid, although his wash-woman might .tfarve. lie maintained his horses at ittie expense of tailors and shoe-makers, but that was nothing to him, for Jie code of honor said nothing con .ecrning unpaid bills, l ie was a man of fashion, and a heartless libertine, an,d for the momentary gratification at a passion, would bring ruin upon peaceful homes, and destroy the peace of twenty souls. Yet, notwithstanding his character was so well known, he was smiled upon, courted and lionized, and all bp i'aiise he was wealthy. The rich """ J .. . 1 fearedhim not, for according to the Bode of honor, aristocratic maidens are Exempt from the spoiler. It is among he poor that the libertine preys upon jia victima, alas! that it is so. Strange tideed that innocence should be es emed so; cheaply, that holy peace ihd hurnblo poverty, are objects that re poked upon by the rich as of little Consequence, i Mary Lee was indeed beautiful. leventeen summers had spread their lowers upon her path, and the sunny )niles of hope wero beaming upon sr brow, Iler cheeks were like twin se buds,' and nature had endowed pr not 'only with beauties of out Wd appearance, but also with all )e virtues ol a loving ficart. She m the only child of a poor school aster, who died in poverty, but left 'lifo Insurance Just sufficient to place t wife and child beyond the reach of W. ' They moved from the busy unts of men, and settled in a small ) some twenty miles from the city, ey were happy laving a friend in personof the young master of the boI, and life to them wa3 full ol joy I peace. - They took the blooming rers for their companions, and the vtft sang sweetly unto them, filling f hearts with a deep and a holy : illiam Baker was indeed a friend. "Pi days and nights were spent, al most all, in the society of Mary and her1 mother.' It was not. therefore, to be wondered at that love crept in, and his dreams became filled with visions pf his heart's idol. . ,t' Mary was commencing to feel the Sangs of Cupid's dart, when Charles etts was introduced to her. He was introduced to her. He wns spending ie summer in the neighborhood, and ipeelnS Mary, be resolved that she jhould be bis victipr. I,."lt was indeed a dark hour for Wil liam Baker. Again and again, he vis fd the cottage, but his heart throb id lew. joyful than it was wont to do. e tyis met with the same kind wcl- mm lei come, but he waa too sensitive and acuto not to see and fear that he was less tho olijtict of attention than his rival.' Ho was unfortunately slightly deformed, anil that defect, which had hitherto passed unnoticed by mother and daughter, appeared in all its hor rid deformity, by the adroit, invidious, and constantly repeated pity of Charles Butts. "A right handsome young; man," would he frequently exclaim; "but t hat huiiin" and here hu would sigh for pity . "Poor William," rejoined Mary. The victim was entangled m tin toils of tho villiun she, so innocerl, so confiding, became his dupe. 1 came again and again and every t'unj he was more attentive to Mary, ho r peated the poetry of Byron, and by de grees led heron to the subject of love. I Io told her of his own homo in the South, of the shady trees, the grassy j lawns, and he whispered in trembling accents, that it was such a homo as she would love and adorn. She believed him, and with a wo- man s trusting nature, lost nor nome, her aged mother, and every scene so dear to her, and placing implicit confi dence in him clung unto him as t he ivy to the oak. Yes, the spoiler had tri umphed; and when Mis. Lee awoke, she called for her daughter in vain she was alone alone in her mis ery. Header, judge her not harshly. You wQjiiiow by experience what it is to resist the tcrntcr pity the fal len. You who stylcth yourselves Christians, rcmcnihi r your master con dcmvth not, milker can you. On the table in her rouin was found a letter, still wet with the teras that had fallen upon it. Thus it read : "William, 1 once felt proud of your love but now am not worthy of it. Forget ntc be ason to my dear moth erand as for mo, you shall see me no more." Bitter, bitter, were the tears of the young man, and heart-rending the shrieks of the mother, but even there, amidst this accumulated weight, of misery, the young man prayed, and the aged woman joined him in his pe tition, and as it was wafted up to the throne of God, angels bowed their heads in pity, and God himself was moved. Thnj prayed for the recreant daugh ter the fallen woman. CHAl'TF.ll H. Three months had rolled away up- ! on the wheids of time, and too moth I vl,.nt hi'imntli I he I'reen turf ol Grecnmount. The load was too heavy for her broken spirit to bear, and her heart bled beneath her sorrows and her griefs. William Baker was also broken in spirit, his face became more nnh hi:; smile more pensive, and his ,,-.1 ,! lMv. cou.ucnaiii.u n, ......... .v.. ing Hie scenes oi uiu muuus juuii.Tum he became a city missionary. Within the city of Baltimore, in dark, dim alleys which led to the City Block, there exists a darker world than philanthropy ever dreamed of. Jlis ery, poverty, crime and starvation, each hung its sombre mantle over the dark ruinous houses which laid their roofs together across the alley. In one of those hovels, a woman and a child were crouching over tho em bers of a scanty tire. Tho room wns damp, and the rain drops fell from the broken roof, nnd the wind moaned mournfully as it entered the cold, dark room, and rustled the scanty straw which composed tho bed. A stranger entered it was William Baker-iii the discharge of his duty. He gazed around him, and as he saw the utter misery of the room, his heart wr.s uhnost ready tn break he looked down upon the hearth, where still re mained a few embers, and ho wept at the view thero presented. "God bless tho poor unfortunate who dwell in this abode," said the man of God, and as he spoke, his voice was choked with emotion. His entrance was unnoticed by the miserable woman, for she was engag ed in coothingtho child, who was cry ing for bread. Its tiny hands were outstretched as if to crave assistance from its mother, but she. unable to ap pease its hunger by food, strove to lull it to sleep, 'hat in the arms of slum ber, the pangs of hunger might for a time be forgotten. She was lost to all around her her mind was wandering back to the hap py scenes of her childhood, when she was pure nnd innocent, and from memory's chamber crowded forth the recollections of joys departed. Again the Christian Missionary of fered up a prayer to God to shed His peace upon the inmates, and the sound of his voice attracted the attention of the woman. The room was dark, so dark, that the features of an individu- :,: WiyCIIKCTFJt, TJNN, NOVEMBF.U 35, 1858. ftl could not be well discerned, but there was something in the tones of the speaker that awoke a dim remein berancoof the past, and placing her babe upon the bed of straw, she ap proached him. lie turned and fixed his gaze upon her. Ho raised his hand to shade his eyes as if to shut out some fearful vision. He lifted his hands to heaven, and in tones of an guish cried : ' "Good Gotl! Mary Lee, the Lord hove compassion on y u." " William Baker!" and a scream wild and startling as a maniac's gave back a frenzied amen. ClIAl'TF.B III.

H W,,- The Story of a Picture. A picture representing the sale ot'n quantity of old furniture- seized for rent, wns exhibited sonic years back in the window of a dealer in the Placo de la Madeleine, Paris, and attracted considerable attention.' In the fore ground was placed a poor woman holding in her arms a child, and wntching with a sorrowlul eye tho progress of the sale. Tho sweet fueo of tho child stood out in strong con trast to the distressed countenance of the poor mother. Further hack were the personages connected with the sale, represented with great vigor. The following is the history of the scene depicted: " A few years since the painter of the picture in question, an eminent ; artist at Lyons, while passing through the line des Terreaux, approached a number of persons who were gathered togcthr witnessing the sale of the lurniture of a poor workman. A wo- J a lovo which never slumbered, and a man was seated on the pavement with j gentleness which nothing could ruf a child in her arms.

The aitistwas much nllected by this simple recital, and inquired who was her landlord. 'There he is,' replied the pr.or woman, pointing ton man who was Witching the progress id' the sale, and he was recognized by the painter as a peison w ho was sus pected of having amassed a consid erable fortune by usury, so that, to make any appeal to his feelings on be half of the poor widow would be use less. Tne artist was considering within himself what oilier plan he could adopt to benefit her, when the crier announced a picture for sale It was a miserable daub, which in the summer the poor woman had used to hide thehole in the wall through which the. pipe of the stove had passed du ring the winter. It. was put up at one I Irani: I'he artist at once conceived a i plan for taking revenge of the lord. He went over, exaininiir picture with great attention, am called out. in a loud voice, 'one land the then bun- dred francs!' The landlord was astonished at, the bid, but conceived that a picture for w hich so eminent an artist could offer that sum, was worth more than double boldly offered JOOf. "Five hundred." said the painter, and the contest be tween the bidders became so animated that, the prize was at length knocked down to the landlord at H.MOOf.l The purchaser then addressing the painter said, "in seeing an artist of your merit bid so eagerly for the picture, I sup posed that it must Ik; valuable. Now tell me sir, at what do you estimate its value" About three francs and a hall,' replied the painter, 'but 1 would not give that for it.' "You are surely jesting,' said the landlord, 'for you bid as high as 'J.lOOf. for it. 'That is true,' replied the artist, 'And I will tell you why I did so.
