Lydia ' you croak like a mren I fhouk* leave my health were I to leave my business. Dju t say any more now. for you see I am busy." As the husband spoke he turned to the little ebony oscritoire which he kept in his parlor, and commcnced overhauling and studying the various p ipers which iay there Lauson Watkins had seen hi' thirti* th year, md, young as he wa?. he had beeoma what the world calls rich. At an early ajre he had entered the mercantile business, aad fortune had smiled upon him. Ho had already auiassed j an abundant competency ; hut while he had been duin^this, he had beeu losing hi* health. His < rgaiiiiatioii was not one which would bear grent mental excitcment. His brain was large and active, his excitability intense, and hi? inind easily worried and tortured; and, on the j otiier baud, bis physical constitution was 8>ight, and of a highly nervous tornperament. tor year* he had applied himself t<> bu siness without taking a respite, and the fabler money came in upon him. tne more anxious and ner vous did lie become in his labors. Night and day did he labor over his shipments and in voice:;. and gradually, but surely, the joy of health was departing from him. Poor Lydia Watkins saw all this. She saw t::c fearful disease marks that were growing upon her husband's countenance, but she c-uld not persuade him to feel as fhc felt, lie 1 iughed at her for her fears, and while he laughed, he felt the disease growing .it hi* vi ti's. A? the merchant sat there at his work, his anxiou* wife watched biin with painful interest, His face was pale in the extreme, and the blue veins stoo-l out upon his high white brow and teirples. His eyes were l..rgp n id brilliant, but their '?rillian-.-y was not nat ural?it was; false, nervous light that gleamed there. As he pored over a complicated in voice. reducing to hi^ nwn currency large amounts of foreign money, his long, while lingers worked nervously through his hair;, s^nd his wiff hoard hiir. breathe hard. Oh, she knew that he coul 1 not live long. Then, at a late hour, ho complained of a headache, but he had cleared ten thousand dollars by the cargo he had been d'sp >-i?:g of, nnd he was pleased. That ten thou-ai.d ti l lars did not help t*> give him content?it only iervcd to rpor him on to rem wed exertions. 4i Lydia, snid Mr. Watkius, after ho had closed his escritoire, " h:ive you seen your un cle Laugrave to day ?" "No." " I am afraid Le is going rather deeply into a dangerous speculation. For a week past I have been endorsing papers for him tj a con siderable amount, lie helped mo without stint when I commenccd business, and I sup P ?se I mu-t help him new ; but I hope he will be careful/' "Adam Langrave is a carvful man, re timed Lydia, ??mu'i I am sure he would not do that which would cause you to suffer."' "Oh, no, I dint think he would," said Wat kin?, and here tLs conversation dropped. for the young man's mind became again buried in his business. Adam Langrave was an old man, and had been the foster-father of Lydia The girl bad been lelt an orphan at an eaiiy age, and her hush an I had commenced his career as Laa gra\c': cleik. and thus h-.* became acquainted with the fnir, virtuous girl. wn?m he in ide his wife. Langravo had lateiy entertained a great pr<ject for unking nuney, and it Wd.s iu pursuance of this that he had called on Wat kins for assistance. On the day following the scene described above, Mr Luagrave called at Watkin's store, and opened to the young merchant more fully his project. It was a vast one, but it promised a golden harvest, and after much deliberation, Lauson entered into it. It looked feasible to him; he promised himselt a rich return fe.r his venture. " Lydia, 1 am a ruined tcan!" Ttiis wup tho exc'aaiatiou of Lauson Wat kin;, as ne entered the pari >r one evening, about a fortnight after his interview with Lap grave. He w is paler than usual, and every nerve was shaken with agitation. "Ruined!" repeated his wife. "Yes. Laagrave has failed; he has entirely, completely sunk. Every cent is g >no." "iiii* yc>u are not all leJt; s- methirgcan be saved.'5 "No, not a dollar. Fool that I was! I went in with him to the amount of two hun dred thousand dollais. I trusted to his hon?" The young man did not finish the word. He was excited, but had judgment enough not to hurt the feelings of his wife by -peakiug harfh ly of her uncle. He was for the while com pletely prostrated The bl-jw bad come upon him with a crushing weight, and he felt it keenly. The gentle wife inored to the husband's side, and placed her arm ahout his neck. She trembled violently, and it was with dithcuity that she could speak. "Do not blame my uncle too much," she murmured. "Everything is not lost lam left to you, and I will do all that I can to help vou, but in your life trials you will find that i am uot useless. Do not despair, dear Lau son, something may turn up to assist you." The young gentleman did not speak. Ho returned his wife's embrace, and at that mo ment she saw more of real, grateful joy in his eye than $he had seen there before for months. At the end of th# week, the young mer- j chant's business was settled up. and he found himself the possessor of just the amount of pei sonal property which the law allowed him. Everything had been iwept away?every cent. Vet there was one thing tnat remained within his grasp. His wife held, by her own right a small farm in the country. It was her birth place, the old house of her childhood ; and her uncle had secured it to her in suoh a mar. ner that no misfortune of her husband could full upon it. Lydia begged of her husband t-> i find a home upon that farm ik hesitated | awhile, and then Consented. He had at first j thought of procuring a clerkship, and trying once more to set himself up in business, but the way looked tedious to him?it seemed too hard to gain the place from which he had fallen, and he gave it up. It was too much for his pride to occupy a menial position now. and he turned away from the great city weary and sick at heart. The homo which Lauson Walking now re ceived at his wife's hands, waa in truth a lovely abode. The farm was an excellent one, bearing the choicest truit, and capable of the most productive cultivation. The dwelling was a sweet little cottage, surrounded by great elms, with cherry and plum trees in front, while at a little distance, sparkling like silver in the suubeams, lay a lakelet, into which a hundred bubbling brooks poured their crystal tributes Lydia sold her jewels, and thus she realized enough to purcha>e a choice slock lor the farm besides having enough left ta hire a trusty man to take charge of the grounds While Watkins was taking this sup, Adam .

Then he saw his children, a little girl and boy. plsying upon the green sward 111 tbo gurden, and he knew that they were growing healthier.

Three years passed aw: y, and the pale, trembling, feverish merchant had become a Kout. bcaltby, rugged mau. liis homo was the abode of every joy?a heaven upon earth It wis in the evening. Mr Watkins had heard his childred recite their lessons and sst t leir prayers. Their modier had blessed and attended them to their bed. They had ju.-t tat down alone?the husband aud wife ? when tome one rapped at the door. Lauson arose and opened it, and Adam Langrave entered t >e apartment. Lydia sprang to the old man s uaibraco. and she wept tears of joy to see her Liud old uncle once more. Laugrave looked about him with something like surprise depicted upon his countenance ; a.id ae be shook hands warmly with Lauson, Lo seemed doubtful about trusting his own sense2 Could it be possible that the dying merchant bad becoino su<h a living man ' The chaaftc to him wa> more surprising than it was to Lydia, for she had watched ??h slow dtvelopemeut of returning health, w'jile ho saw it all at once, it was in truth, a very wonderful change. Quickly did Lydia prepare a simple rerast for her uncle, and the old scenes were talked about. Lausou told how he had succeeded on bis firm, and Langrave told whero he had been in the South. The evening wore away pleasantly and agreeably. At len? h the old ma.i reoiai ed silent for some moments, and Lydia begat: to tremble.

And.'' continued Lauson. with increasing animation, " U>-morrow morn ing you shall sec my children. You will have to nse early, if you could bear their first shout ef joy, anl see their first smile of glad ness." " Thank tiod, Lydia." murmured the old man, as he turned towards his nioce, " your plan his been blessed.'' Lauson Watkins gated first at his wife, and then upon her uncle. He was puaalod. His wife caught his eager gate, and. with a con vulsive movement, she sprang tovifdi htm, u.;.d threw her arms about hi* uc\k 44 Ob, forgive me, my busbtnd?forgive me!'' she uttered, while the tears streamed down her cheeks.

Lauson Watkins was bewildered at first, but gradually the cloud dispelled from hie mind. "Oh. Lauson?my husbtnd??can you forg've me ?" Tho redeemed man strained his wife to hia bosom, and while tbe warm tears rolled down his cheeks, he cried: 44 Forgive y^u ? No, no. my love, my angel of life, I have nothing to forgive.
