EVENING STAE.

Hope, and Truth best boona to mortals given; Waved their bright wands, and answered, " ves in Heaven. ' Attempt to Prostitute a Young Girl?Honor \\ here Least to be Expected. [From the Chicago Journal ] A few davs since a young Canada iadv, about thirteen or fourteen years of age. came to the city from Canada, for the purpose of meeting her fa ther, who had been to the West on business, and put up at the Tremont House Not meeting her father as she had anticipated, she became uneasy. At the Treinont House she met a man who gave his name as U. D. Black. Thiswretch represent ed to her that a public hotel was no place for her and that he would procure a private boarding house for her till she'rould find her father. She acceded to his proposition, and the villain gave her the following letter to a woman named Kate Howard, who keeps a house of ill repute at IIS Wall street: "Dear Madame?You will cenfer a great favor on me by keeping in your house, and can do as you like with her. She don't know where I am sending her to. Be kind to her, and tell her that vou will give her five dollars a week and board I have took all her money away from her. If you will give her some dry cfothes to put on her, I will pav you for them. I will call on you in a week. Keep .. '?G. D. Black." Thus this Infernal ruffian planned the destruc tion of an innocent young girl, but he wasdoomed to be disappointed. \\ hen the girl presented herself at Kite Howard's that woman, to her honor be it said, asked her if she knew to what Mind of a house her pretended friend had sent her. 8"' answered no. Kate said, '? He has sent TOU to a house of prostitution, and 1 am the Keeper of it, but I have not forgotten that I was once an innocent child like yourself, or that I once had a mother as perhaps you have, and 1 will protect and defend you, outcast and fallen as I ?m Come out of this den at once?it is no place for the like of you." Suiting the action to the word, the woman took the poor, friendless girl to a respectable German family in the neighbor riood, and paid for her board and lodgingout of her own pocket. In the morning she seitt forone of our detective police otflcers and placed the girl in his keeping and yesterday she was restored to the anns of her father. ,.
