Air Hob- rt Allen had set him tin in businrs. nnd hud lurnisheU his house very genteelly; th nrst Itoor ol winch lie always occupied when his affairs called him to London. Mr Lewis (the name of the haberdasher was about the ago of his worthy friend. lie had since he last saw him. buried bis ife, n very notable trooil woman : and for his sirt.t, if 1 may be nllowed the exnres&inn. unu ueen married to n young llirt, who had drawn in the old man by n pretty face, with out any one good quality either of the head or heart. She tossed up her nose nt nil Iht neighbors, and was as proud asauv woman of quality. . She had wheedled her old man, ns she called her woithv husband, to ki-i-n I i i . . . v uer n one norse cuniso. ana to tnl;e n oi - ing upon Ilighpme hill, for the quiet und benefit of the country nir. As this Indv wns immodernn-lv fmwl if cards, she had n little kind of rout every Thursday, in tho apartments of her first floor. A few days before one of those brilliant assemblies wus to take place. Mr Lewis re ceived a letter from his worthy friend and netuctor, Air Allen, that lie would be in town the 1 hursday following, and hoped those apartments he had occupied for tm-n- years, would be in readiness to receive him. '1 he good haberdasher showed his wife the letter j nnd demonstrated to her the ne cessity there was of putting ofi' her weekly meeting; but she cut him short, with say ing it was absolutely impossible for thut she had sent her cuids to her company for two montus tietore, and t lint the parlies were all made; that she should make no fuss nbout this old country gentleman, for thut be must e'n take up his lodging up two pair of stairs. Her poor husband sighed in the bitterness of his henrt, but wns forced to submit for the sake of domestic quiet. Mr Allen nrrived nt the house nt the time he appointed ; nnd ns it happened to be on the Thursday evening, was surprised on alighting finm his carriage to see his din ing room illuminated with u great number of lights, nnd us he advanced up stairs to hear n confused number of female voices. The !m be nln slier (for his wife was too fine n lndy to nppear on this occasion) nfter an hundred nwkwnrd npologies, conducted his worthy guest to the second floor, who soon retired to bed, but thnt sweet repose which'he usunlly found after a day spent in virtuous peace, he wns nnwn stranger to, as the Indies below did not depart till after mid night; nnd ho might ns well have expected to have slept in the tower of Babel, as in such' a confusion of voices. They were at length no sooner departed, than the good man's slumbers werengnin disturbed, though from n different cause. It wns now from the room over his head, that proceeded sounds which prevented his getting any sleon. Ho heard, though but indistinctly, the plaintive wuiling of a young infant, nnd the frequent sobbings of some woman. As theso melancholy sounds continued the chief part of the night, his compassion for tho unhappy sufferers (whoever they were,) was extremely excited. No mail surely hnd more of whnt Shukespenro calls 'the milk of human kindness' than Mr Rob ert Allen ; he therefore felt for every thing in distress. The pity he now foil wns in deed heightened, when, by break of day In distinctly heard the voices of several chil dren, nnd soon after the tread of many little feet in tho chamber over his head. Tho worthy man now arose, finding it impossible to get any sleep j nnd nfter em ploying un hour in his devotions and medi tations, rang for his breakfast; soon after which, Mrs. Lewis herself mndo her appear nnce, nnd said she was much afraid ho had been disturbed by a parcel of squalling brals who lodged over his apartment.
