The sun had not yet risen, and a heavy mist hung over Mount Vesuvius, spreading on to wards Naples, and enveloping the small towns on the coast. The sea was calm On the beach of a small gulf under the Sorrentine rocks several fishermen were engaged in hauling up the boats and nets which bad been used during the night, whilst others were preparing tbeir tackle and trimming their sails for a fre-h start. No one was idle; for even the old women had brought out their spindles, an I the wives and children were engaged in work or play 44 Look here, Rachel! there is our padre," said an old woman to a little thing of ten years old, who played round her spindle. 44 lie is just stepping into the boat. Anto nio is to take bim over to Capri, iloly Ma ria ! how sleepy the vene/able pastor looks." Thus saying, she greeted a little benevolent looking priest, who was just seating himself in a boat, after having carefully lifted his long black robe and npread it on the bench The men on the shore paused in their work to see the departure of their pastor, who nodded and greeted right and lift. " Why does ne go to Capri, grandmamma?" asked the child. " Have the people there no priest, that they have to borrow ours?" " Silly child . said the old woman ; they have plenty of priests over there, and the mo*t beautiful churches, and even a hermit, which we have not. But there is a noble lady who lived here for some time, and was so ill that mere than once it was thought she could not recover, and the priest had to go to her with the Host. However, the Holy Virgin succored hor; she is now strong and well again; and bathes in the sea every day. When slio went forth from this place over to Capri, she gave a great heap of ducats to the church and to the poor, ana would not go till the padre had promised to continue his visits to her there, that she might confess to him. She had wonderful confidence in him, and we may consider ourselves fortunate in keeping him as a pastor, for he has the talent of an arch bishop, and many of the highest in the land inquire after him. The Madonna be with him " Whereupon sho again nodded towards the little boat, which was just pushing off from the shore. 44 Shall we have fine weather, my son ?" in quired the little priest, looking doubtfully to wards Niples. 44 Tho sun ba6 not yet risen," replied the young owner of the boat; " it will soon clear aw:iy the mist " Antonino seized the long oar to push tho boat into deep water, but suddenly stopped and looked up the steep path which led from the beach to the little town of Sorrento. The slight form of a girl was visible hastening down the steps, and waving a handkerchief. She carried a little bundle under her arm, and her dress was plain in the extreme ; but the head thrown haughtily back,-and the noble cut of the features contrasted etrangeiy with her apparent poverty. The black braids of her hair were crossed above her forehead, like the diadem to which she seemed born. "Why are we waiting?" a.^ked the priest "There is a woman coming towards the b at who wants to go to Capri, if you do not ob ject, padre. We shall not go any the slower, for she is a little thing, scarcely eighteen years of age " At this moment the girl stepped from be hind the wall which enclosed the winding path. "Laurella!" said the priest; " what ha; she to do in Capri ?" Antonino shrugged his shoulders. The girl advanced hastily with hor eyes on theground. 44 How do you do, LaRabbiata !" cried sev eral of the young sailors They would havo said nioro had not the presence of the priest restrained them ; for the silent, scornful way in which the girl received their greeting seemed to irritate tho rude fellows 44 How do you do. Laurella"' said the priest; 44 how are vou to day ? Ho you wish to go to Capri?" " With your permission, padre. " Ask Autoniuo; he is the owner of the boat. Every one is master of his own prop erty, and God is Lord over us all " 4'Here is a half carline," said Laurella. without looking at the young boatman ; 14 can I go for that ? ' 44 You want it more than I do," murmured the young man, as he pushed asido some bas kets of oranges to make room. 141 shall not go for nothing,'' replied the girl, knitting her black eyebrows. 4* Come, child," said the priest; " he is a good yttuth, and will not make himselt rich at tho expense of your little store. There, get in, and sit down here by me See, he has spread bis jacket, that you may sit more com fortably ; he did not do as much for me ; but that is the way with young people?more care is taken of one little girl like you than of ten reverend gentlemen. Well, well, yeu need not excure yourself, ?Tonino ; this is always the way of the world !" Laurella had meanwhile stepped into the boat and seated herself; but she pushed the jacket on one side without a word of thanks The young sailor did not remove it, but mur mured something between his teeth. He then pushed vigorously from the shore, and the little skiff flew out into the gulf. 44 What have you got in that bundle?" asked the priest, while they sailed across the water, which was just now glistening in the first rays of the sun. 44 Silk, thread, and a bit of loaf, padre. I am to sell the silk to a woman in Anacapri, who makes ribbon, and the thread to some one else." 44 Did you spin it yoursolf7" 4' Yes, padre." 44 If I remember right, you have also learnt to make ribbons ?" 44 Yes, padre; but my mother is so much worse that I cannot leave the house, and we are not able to buy a loom for ourselves." 41 Oh ! is 6he worse ? When I was with you at Easter, she was sitting up " 44 The spring is always the worst time with her. Ever since the great storm and tho earthquake, she has suffered so much as to be obliged to keep her bed." 44 Iudced ! then you must be earnest in prayer to tho Virgin for her, and be good and industrious, that your prayers may bo heard." After a pause, he continued : 44 As you wero coming down to the shore they shouted 4 How do you do, La Rabbiata !' Why do they call you so ! It is not a pretty name for a Chris tian girl, who should be soft, mild and gentle." Her dark face crimsoned with blushes, and her eyes flashed. 44 They mock me because 1 will not dance, and sing, and talk nonsense, like every girl. Why cannot they leave me alone ? I do them ne harm." " But you should be courteous to every one. Perhaps you may not like to dance and sing like others whose lives are happier; but even hearts oppressed with sadness may give a kind word. She looked down and contracted her brows as if to hide the dark eves beneath. For some time they oontinued their way in silence. The sun now shone brilliantly over the moun tains ; the summit of Vesuvius rose above the mist; and the houses in the orange-gardens around. Sorrento looked danling white in the morning rays. "Have you heard nothing more of that pain ter, Lanrella?that Neapolitan who wished to marry you?' asked the prieBt. She shook her head. 44 He came once to tako your picture : why did yon refuse to allow him ?" 44 \V hat did he want it for ? There ate m tny girlt more beautiful than I am. And then, who know* what he would hare done with It* My mother said he might bewitch me. and in jure mj life. perhaps even hurt my aoul " "Do not believe such sinful things," said the prieat eerne?tly. 44 Are you not always in the hand* of ttod, without whoee will not a hair of your head falls; and can a man like that, with a mere picture in hii hand, be more powerful than our Heavenly Father' Be side* that, you might have known that he wished yoa wall, or would he hare asked you in marriage?" The girl was silent. " And why did you refuse to marry V con tinued the priest, after a pause " He was a good and handsome man, and would hare supported your mother much better than you can do witn the trifle you earn by spinning and silk-winding." ?'We are poor people," replied Laurella vehemeatly ; " and my mother, has been to long ill, we should only have been a burden to bini Besides. I am not flt to be a siguora When his friends came to visit him, he weuld have been ashamed of me.' " How you talk ! I tell you that he was an excellent man ; and, betides, he would have come to live in Sorrento. You will not easily find such another ; he seemed aa if tent from heaven to sucoor you." " I do not want a husband ; I shall never marry!" she said disdainfully, and a* if speaknig to herself. " Have you ever made a vow, or are you going into a convent?" She shook her head. " People are right in calling you head strong. Do you consider that you are not a!cce in the world, and that you make the ill ness and poverty of your mother only mora bitter by your obstinacy ? What good reason could you have for refusing the honest man who wished to support you? Answer me. Laurella." "1 have a reason," said she*, in a low and hesitating voice, " but I cannot tell it." " Not tell it ??not to me ??to your father confessor? You know I always seek your good?do you not, Laurella?" she nodded. ?? Then unburden your heart, my child. If you are right. I will be the first to commend you; but you are young, and know little of the world, and may afterwards regret having thrown away your happiness for some child ish fancy.'' She cast a hasty glance towards the young man, who, busy with his oar, sat in the bow ot the boat, his woolen cap drawn down over hid eyes. He was gasing on the sea, and seemed occupied with his own thoughts. The priest saw her look, and bent down his ear. '? You did not know my father." she whis pered, and her eyes were full of gloom. ?' Your father! why, he died when yen were scarcely ten years old, I think* What ha* your father, whose soul, I trust, is in Paradise, to do with your obstinacy?" " You did not know him, padre! You do not know that to him alone is my mother's illnes owing!" ?'How so?" inquired the priest with sur I rise. ?'Because he beat and ill-treated her. L remember well the nights when he would c <me home iu a perfect fury. Sho never spoke a word, and did all he wished; but he would beat her till my heart nearly broke. I use I to draw the covering over my head, and pre tend to be a?leep; but in truth I cried all night. And when he ?aw her lying on the floor, his manner would suddenly change; he would raise her, and clasp her in hit arum, close to his heart, till she cried out half suflo cated. My mother forbade me to say a word about it then ; but it had such an effect upon her, that, ever since his death, many years ago, sho has never regained her health ; and if she dies?which hcaveu f-irbid!?I know who will have killed her " The little priest shook his head, and seemed uncertain how far he should acknowledge the justice of the girl's reasoning. At last ha said : "Forgive him. my child, aayour mother has forgiven him Do not let your thoughts dwell on such sad scenes, Laurella; better times are iu store for you, and all this will be forgotten." '? Never ! I shall never forget it!" she said shuddering. -'And it is this which has deter mined mc to remain unmarried, padre. I will not be subject to one who will ill treat me one moment and caress me the next. If any were now to attempt to do either the one or the other, I should kuow how to defend myself, but my mother would not do so, because she loved him I will love no one well enough to endure suck things from him." *' What a child you are to t*lk such non sense !" replied the priest. "Are all men like your father, who gave way to every whim and passion, and did, in truth, ill treat your mother ? Have you nwt seen numbers of ex cellent men in the neighborhood, and women, who live in perfect unity and peace with their husbands " Ah ! they appear to do so ; but no one knew my father's conduct to my mother ; she would rather have died a thousand deaths than have uttered a word of complaint, and all because she loved him. If it be love, which closes one's lips so that one dare not cry out for help, and which makes one de fenceless against greater injuries than would be endured from an enemy, then, as I have said before, I will never give up my heart and liberty to any man." " I tell you, you aie an ignorant child, and do no! understand what you are talking of. Yourieart will not ask you whether you will love or not; when the time comes, all these notions will then give way." After a pause he again continued : "And did you tell that Sainter?did you tell him that you feared his arshness " " His eyes looked just liko my father's when asking forgiveness of my mother, and tryiug to make it up with her. I know those eyes; they can be feigned even by a man who beats the wife who has never done him any harm ; and I shuddered when I saw them again." After this she remained silent, and the priest followed her example. He was think ing of much good advice that he could give to the girl; but the presence of the young sailor, who, towards the end of the converse tion, had become apparently restless, closed his mouth. In about the spacc of two hours they ar rived in the little harbor of Capri. Antonino carried the padre through the surf to the shore ; but Laurella would not wait till he had waded back to fetch her; she lifted her little skirt, took her wooden shoes in her right Land, the bundle in her left, and splaaLed sturdily through the water. " I shall remain some time at Capri, to d iy," said the priest. " and you need not wait for me, my son. Indeed, I may possibly not return till to.inorrow. Laurella, salute your mcthtr for me when you get home; I Khali visit her before the week is out. I suppose you return before night ?" "If there be any opportunity," said the girl, as sho arranged something about her dress. '* Vou know that I must get back " said Antonino, in what was intended for a very in different tone. ** I shall wait for you till vespers : and if you are not here by that time, it does not matter to me." " You must go baek, Laurella," put in the little priest; "you mutt not leave your mother alone all night. Have you far to go now ?" " To Anacapri, to a vineyard." M Ah ? then our roads do not He together. I am bound for Capri. The Madonna bleu you my child; and you, too, my sou." [to aa CONTINUBD.] KMan shines abroad?woman at home, has science?woman taste.
