For, being thus appealed to with soni" endearing gestures and caresses, she folded her small nrmsitnd shook her head, and convoyed a relenting expression iuV- her vcry-wido-opon black eyes. 'It ain't right of you to ask it, Mis Floy, (or you know I can't refue you, hut Mrs. Richards an I ui" will see what can be done, if Mrs. Rich ards likes, I nny vv ih, yolf, to take a voyage lo Chanoy, Mrs. RicluriU. but I mayn't know ho.y to leave the London Docks.'

With these woriN.Siisin Vipper, in a trans, port of coercion, made a charge at her young ward, and swept her out oflhe room. The child, i i her grief and neglect, was so gentle, o quiet, and uncomplaining ; was pos sessed of so much affection that no ono seemed to care, to lave, and so much sorrowful intelli gence that no ono seemed to mind or think aliout the wounding of ; that Polly's heart was sore when she was lcll alone again. In the simple passage that had taken place between herselfund the motherless little girl, her own motherly heart had been touched no less llie child's; and sho felt, as the child did, that thero was some thing of confidence and interest between them from that moment. Notwithstanding Mr. Toodle's great reliance on Polly, she was perhaps in point of artificial accomplishments very little his superior, lint sho was a good plain sample ofa nature that is over, in the mass, better, truer, higher, nobler, quicker to feel, and much more constant to re tain, all tenderness and pit y, self-denial and de votion, than the nature of men. And perhaps, unlearned as she was, .she could have brought a d i vvning knowleiliru homo to Mr. Dnmbev at that early if.iy.which would not then have struck him in the end like lightning. I 1 nt this is irom the nun-,e. Polly only 1 thought, ut tint time, of improving on her suc cessful propitiation of Miss Niper, and devi-ing some means of having little Foteiico beside her, i lawfully, and without rebellion. All opeliiiiL' happened to present itself that ve-y night. She had been rung down into the glass room as usual, and had walked about and about it a1 long time, with the baby in her arms, when, to her great snrpii-e and dismay, Mr. Domhey came out, suddenly, nnd -topped hjfore her. '(looil evening, Richards.' Just the samu austere, still' geiitlmiau. as he had appeared to her on the lir-t thy; -nch a hard-looking gentleman, that she iivoluntarily dropped hereyes and her curtesy at tho same time.

Witii that, ho disappeared into his innrroomj and Polly had Iho satisfaction of feeling that ho had thoroughly misiindcr.-tooil her object, and that sho had fallen into disgrace without the least advancement of her purpo-o. Next night she found him walking about tho conservatory when sho came down. As she stopped at tho door, checked by this unusual sight, and uncertain whether to 'adrance or ra treat, he called her in. 'If you really think this sort of society is good for the child,' he said sharply, as if there Ind boen no interval since she propo-ed it, 'where's .Miss Florence?' I 'Nothing could be better than Miss Florence, Sir,' said Polly eagerly, -hut I understand from her littlo maid that they were not to ' .Mr. Domhey rang the hell and walked till it was answered. i 'Tell them always to let Miss Florence be with Richards when she chooies, and go out with her, and so fourth. Tell them to let the children be together, when Richards wishes it,' The iron was now hot, and iticinrds striking on it boldly it was a good cause, and she was bold in it, though instinctively afraid of Mr, Domhey requested that .Mill Florence might he sent down then and there, to make friends with her liltlo brother. She.feigned tu be dandling the child as the ser vant retired on this erriud, but she thought she sivy that Mr. Dombey's color changed; that the expression of his face quite altered: that ho turned, hurriedly, us if togiiiis.iy what ho had s ml, or sho had said, or both, and was only de terred by very shame. And sho was right. The last tine ho had seen his slighted child, there lud been that In the sad embrace between her and herdying mother, which was at onco u revelatun iin.I, a reproich to him. Let him ho absorbed as ho would in tint Sou on whom he had built such high hopes, he could not forget that closing scene. Ho could not forget that ho had h id n part in it.
