" Adela, mj darling ! Adela!" '? She has gone out, grandpa." " 4 rone oat! with whom f Has she left me here alone with you. Julietta7" ?? Little Mary is here, grandpa, playing with the dog; and Marianne is in the kitchen. get ting dinner ready.'* This conversation was held between a little girl, about nine years old. and the Baron St. Andrew, an old man of eighty. He was a knight of the order of St. Louis, and had received his knighthood and in>ignia from the hands of Louis the Sixteenth, king of France, llo was now. however, quite blind, and consequently almost helpless. Little Mary, a child of six years of age. made the third one of the party. '?Julietta"' resumed the old man. after a *bort silence, 44 did your sutcr say anything to yoa when she swent out"' '? Yes. grandpa," replied Julietta ; 44 she said to me?"Take care that little Mary doesn't trouble grandpa, and if he wishes to go into the garden, gtve him your hand, and take care not to let him stumble over anything, because he can't see. poor grandpa ! and God has given him to us. his children, to tako care of him and toobey him. and make him a* happy as wean.' Oh. I know it all by heart, grandpa, because Adela tells it u? me three tinier a day; every time before she goes out." ? H??w! every time before she goes out! I>?C3 she often go out?" asked the old man, whose venerable brow seemed ruffled by some painful theught. ?? Three times every day !" answered Julictta, in s<>iue surprise; ?' three times everyday; onco in the morning, before you como down, from 7 to ? o'clock; another, tfr>nn 11 till I; and the the third from it to*i, when you are asleep. You sec ! three times a day. Did you think 1 nul ln't reckon?" " What o'clock is it now'" asked tho Baron, rather sharply, doubtless with tho hope of find ing some discrepancy in Julietta's reckoning. " It struck one just now," Julietta answered " And here c-nnes Adela; I hear tho garden g?te opening; and .-he is speaking to Mary and the dog. They have gone to meet her." In a few moment^ Adela entered. She was a young and lovely girl; young, ;-he seemed as if she had scarcely emerged from childhood, and yet, so serious and so thoughtful was the expression of her countenance, that the pre mature cares of life had. aj it were, blighted the flower of youth. 44 Adela" said the old man. in a tone so sad and serious that it brought the quic? color to the young girl's face, ?* whence c >ino you?" and stretching forth his hand, he seized that of Adela s, which she had extended towards him. took it between both his own. gently stroked it. and at last said, in a mournful manner, '? You are agitated, my child ! you are troubled' you tremble ! Whence como yuu?" The young girl did not reply. Obtaining no answer, the Baron St. An lres continued, and the slow, solemn accent with which ho uttered each word showed the sad feeling* of his heart. "In 1814 I was a wid ower. Adela, and, of all my numerous family, only one was left mo, my sainted daughter Henrietta, your mother. * * * Your lather fell at Waterlno; you were then only twelve Adela ' Adela ' what can I say? By all my past miseries?by my unceasing grief?by my gray hairs?I entreat you. tell me. whence ome you' Whither p> you three times everyday?'' '? Mj father,' said Adela, " I am only sev enteea years old. it is true, and yet, young as I am. sorrow and care have already left their imprest on my brow. Three years ago my mother died, yet that sail scene is still ever !?re*ent to my mind, as vividly as if it had been ?ut ye.-ierday. I still hear the weak voice, resainiog momentary strength, address me: * Adela she said. 41 leave you two daughter1; bo a in ither to them. And" my poor father?I intrust hi:u to you. Guide the two first in their course though life, show them its thorns and its dangers. Hide from the second every thing that would pain him ' Such were her words, I and 1 have tried toobey them. 1 go out three times a day. and that troubles you; but you do not consider that I am the mistress of a family? the housekeeper?and yet more, I have to take care of you all Are not these duties enough to call me out three times a day? Have confi dence in your Adela, my dear grandfather? Iru-t in her!" ??That is all I desire; it is nil my heart wishes my daughter' Well, well' you have keen out to-day?yf?u will not go out again ' Am I right * You do not answer. Adela! Adela, as if -he had uot heard his last words, turned to Julietta, and questioned her concern ing the studies which ?he h?d to recite to her in the evening, and thus adroitly changed the conversationShe then remained for some time with the little ]<arty on the puzza, until M trianne -unimoned them to the (lmner-table Notwithstanding her exertions to pleaso and eutertain her grandfather, she observed with pain thai his mind was still troubled, and fear ing that he would resnme his attempts to dis suade her from again venturing out. she con trolled her feelings, and chatted incessantly with the little ones?all tho time, however, earefully ministering to the old mau's wants. A- soon as the meal was fini-hed, she directed Julietta to lead her grandfather back to his seat on the (liaiu, while she herself remained, a> if to attend to h^r household do tie?. At the end of half an hour Julietta saw her with her bonnet on her head, ami her gloves on her hand. ? walk qni^kly through the garden and pas* out i of the gate, which she closed behind her. with ! the least possible noi.-e The old man's fine ?*nse of hearing, however, hal instantly de tected. and. if we may .v? .?|*-ak. had followed all the m'jveineQto of his granddaughter, and when the ga'e clo?ed behind her he said, with a deep sigh, and as if speaking to himself, " She ha< gone out again ' * Then, probably to divert the solicitude which wa? tormenting him, he directing Julietta to go and tell the servant girl to take little Mary out for a walk, and added, " Bring with you, when you come back, the new.paper that you will find on the table in the saloon, and coine and re \ 1 to me the article upon the public rejoic ing of last week That will amuse both you an i me ' Julietta obeyed. A short time afterwards M irianne and M iry went Out for their walk, an 1 Julietta returned, and seating herself upon a stool near her grandfather's feet, beg.in to re11 the articlc which ho had mentioned. It waj a very loog one. and as she had to stop no? and then to spell some of the longer and ia>re difficult words, she had not quite finished ? t. when several knocks oa the garden tcnie was heard. 44 There is no one to open it, grandpa," said the little girl, interrupting her reading. " You mu*t go. then, ' said the baron The garden gate wa< not far enough from the piazza to prevent the old man from bearing the fallowing dialogue, which took place between hi- niece and a lady?a stranger : Does not a young lady, a teacher of the pi v'Te here'" asked the latter, i ' Julietta replied. , lt be here, certainly, my dear ? I hiid tne ex*ct direction to this hou*c given me. She * '?oarder, whom you do not know, my little one. ' ' J In the whole house there is no one but my grandpa, who u blind.'' answered Julietta, in the impatient t?>ne of a liule girl who liked not her word to be doubted, and Adela. my oldest sister and Marianne the cook and her hus a K*riT,r Mary, and the dog. and I; and no one else But some e< ? ytong lady comes hen. who teaches the piano, and perhaps -he u the one you want to '? I wi-h to see Mis* Adela St Andres who taa^hes the piano in the family of M '? I never tell ibs. m? amf" mi* Julietta impatiently interrupting her, " m y sister Adela w not a teacher of the piano Don't voa think that I ought to know u Does the Baron St. Andres live here1"' ask ed* young man. stopping also at the half open g?*e 44 Ye*, sir." "Then, certainly, the youfifc lady for whom you are inquiring, lives here, madam," he said to the lady who was questioning Julie tta; "and doubtless, the Baron St. Audrey, whoui I seek, is her grandfather." And to the intense sur prise. and even anger, of Julietta, who still in sis ted that her sister was not a teacher of music, tho young man made his way to the piatza. ap proached the blind grandfather, and. after hav ing assured himself that he was speaking to the Baron St. Andres, said?" Baron ! I have tho pleasure of announcing to you that your pension is restored." " Sir, sir; you must certainly have taken mo for some one else," the Baron answered, his surprise almost as great as thatof Julietta, "for my pension has never been taken from me How then can you say, ' it is restored V " The young man resumed, and it was evident that he was also greatly astonished : " Are you not the Baron St. Andres, who served in the reign of Louis XV.. and Louis XVI., in tho Vcndean wars ; who has lost flvo sons in the wnrs of the Empire?" " Yes, sir," the Baron answered. "Your granddaughter?the young lady? Adela St. Andres?does sho not give lessons on tho piano in the house of the Minister of War ?in fact, to my sisters ?" "Explain yourself, sir! explain yourself!" the old man exclaimed. " My pension lost * Adela!' Three times a day! Oh ! 1 entreat you, explain !" " It is a very simple matter," the young man said; "but how can you be ignorant of all this ? It is a fact that I have two sisters, and about a year ago, when they were seeking a teacher of music, your grand-daughter, tho young lady Adela. offered Tier services; sho was reeontmended by the Countess de Bricourt, whose daughters she was also teaching. After some months had passed, knowing that I was in the war-office, and that I am tho minister's nephew, she told me that your pension had been discontinued for two years, and that no cause had been assigned for it, and. sho added, ? Neither a blind old man, nor a young girl like me, can take the necessary steps to learn the reason.' ? Make your mind easy upon that point.' I said to her; 41 will take charge of tho matter.' I have fulfilled my promise, and now 1 have the pleasure of communicating to you the pleasing intelligence that orders have been giveu. not only for the restoration of your pen sion. but also for the payment of nil arrears." "Oh, Adela! noble and worthy girl!" ex claimed the old man, raising his sightless eyes t? Heaven; "Oh, my daughter' so unjustly accused?you have concealed all this from me ; all?even the labor which your filial love in- I duced you to uudertake. Oh. where is she? why does she not come 7 (Jo, go and seek her." Julietta went out, as if for that purpose, ami the Baron, gradually overcoming his emotion, related to the young man and to tho stranger lady all that had passed that morning?his fears and his anxieties for his grand-daughter. The praises and blessings which the old man lav ished upon the absent Adela met full sympathy from at least one of her hearers. "Oh, Baron, my dear sir!" the young man said; " you do not know me yet; I am a stran ger to you. but I will give you ample satisfac tion concerning my family; I have long loved your grand-daughter; sho does not reject me ; give her to me, I implore you, for my wife!" At this moment a cry of joy from Julietta an nounced the return of Adela. When tho latter saw the two persons who were standing near grandfather, she blushed deeply, and hesitated in her approach ; but the old man callod her to him. ana fondly embracing her. said : Everything is discovered, you darling, you little rogue; and here is one who claims the right to be your husband, and to separate you from me." " He who claims that right," the still blush ing girl answered, with a strange mingling of timidity and of firmness, "must also take upon him the charge of an old mnn. and of two little ones, for whose welfare ami happiness I am re sponsible in the eyes of God." " All, all that you love, shall be most dearly welcomed, dearest lady." Adela educated her two sisters, and saw them happily married?a? happily as herself, and none could wish a happier lot. The blind old Baron lived to an extreme old age. nnd at length died in her arms, bequeathing her his last fond blessing. Tiie Arrival or Morm<>x* at Bostojs ?It ha* already b*en stated thata ?>hip arrived at Bo,, ton last week from Liverpool, with MM Mormons. The Courier say* : Many of the families were possessed of consid erable property. The captain estimated the amount of British gold upon the passengers at XliM"", and said that he knew of more than one person who had XI, 000 for his own use and that of his family. Se veral had left relatives and friends behind them. One woman hud left her husband thai she might eo to the land of the saint and there was another beautiful, dark eved young woman, Vrith a voung infant, whose Story, ai told by the captain, was quite touching;. The < aptairi noticed her when they started, as posseised of great beauty. but lost sight of her in a (lay or two, and supposing she had changed her O'larters. did not inquire for her in eight or ten days lie was then told that she had oeen very sick, and was still quite feeble. He had her b'ought from between the deek*. where she was. upon the deck, and laid on a mattress, got her f>ot?? |?ort wine and cake, and tried to tiring her bark to hnallh I rider thin treatment she Im proved mneh. and in reply to hi* questions, told him that 'h?- had left a pleasant home, in a quiet village in England, and a hu*band to whom she bad i?ee? married but a vear or I wo, for this jour ney lie a?k'*d her reason*. She replied that she had done so for Christ's sake, who had p.oni i-cd that if one forsook father ami mother and husband for him, sh?- should receive more abund antly in this life, and in the world to come ever lasting life. The conduct of these Mormons on Itoard the vessel waa exemplary. In their i>ersonal habits Ih^y were cleanly, only four u?ing tobacco. An <onn a* the immigrants had left Liverpool they formed themselves into eightdivisions, with ab >ut one hundred in each division, and chose a bishop and an elder to preside over each company. They had morning ana evening service, prayer, and sini;:ng. and in the evening, generally, a ser mon. On Sundays a sermon was preached to tach section Rkaimxq thf Whirlwind.?The Young Men's Christian Association, of New York, is about to reap the result of mingling religion with politics. l*ast fall they had, unfortunately, too many "freedom shriekers" amongst them, whose conduct gav? ureal offence to a number of their as sociates. The con eqnence was that an ill-feeling and contention we e engendered, which have been k?-pt up uutil now, no le*s than one hundred and seventy-nine ?members, including a number of Srominent clergyman have signed a card of with rawal from the society, with the view, probably of forming a new one, from which polities will be excluded. The card was laid before a meet ing of the society last evening, and upon the ta ble. Among the names attaebed to it are those of Chancellor Ferris, Rev. Dr. Spring, and 12 oth er clergymen. ' Feet Washkrs."?This denomination of Christians has created considerable excitement in Annapolis. Street preaching a nd street argument, together with their public baptism, has attracted to them much attention. They are under the lead of a Mr. gtausbury, who is a native of An napolis. 117* Dr. Smith, who w.m held to ball In the sum of ftiu.onti for the murder of Dr. Blackburn at Cairo, III., has escaped, and his bail are said not to be worth 9600, all told, lie is about thirty years old, six feet two inches high, with light hair and fair complexion, low forehead and sharp features. UjT Miss Sally Martin, daughter of the late Dr Martin, who is worth 97U.UU0 in her own right, and had been brought up by two old maid aunts in seclusion from ?? the world," eloped last week from Xenia, Ohio, with a bad fellow named Boyd, with whom she had been acquainted but two or three weeks, by means of stolen interviews. ID* On Wednesday last, a robber of a so>ty compleilon attempted to enter the house of old Widow Hardwood, in Brandford, Va., by de scending a chimney He stuck fast midway, however, and the old widow heard him. Hhe heaped straw in the fireplace, and lightrd it. The robber, half suffocated, roared.
