Upon discovering the home by the Dumber given, I ?u not a little surprised on finding ?*iyself accosted bj several young females wit** were standing at the door, and who welcomed me as if I were an old acquaintance. The matron of the establishment next anproaohed me, followed by the remainder of her household. She was a large, portlj woman, of well-formed features, hut with a leaden expression of the eye which chilled familiarity. Her " I am glad to see *\ you.1' was delivered in the same tone as she t would reply to a dun to "call to-morrow " ' You have some one sick with you?" I remarked. "Vm," repliurl; "there isone of the girls who ha.* been taken sick, and nothing would satisfy her bat to senator you. I believe her nurse put the notion into h?r head She wnnta for nothing, as I can take care of my own sk*k; but she ha* seen you visiting next door, and fancies you can do something for her. Let me show you to her room.:' At the doorway of the room I was met by the * nurse.who had been frequently in our employ. I entered, followed by the matron and all the girls, seven or eight in number '-Mary," said the matron, " here is Mr. 9V ' Oh.

HVIUlUg UUfc her hand to me, and requesting all others praseut to retire for a few minutes. To examine into the condition of my patient the better, I brought the candle beside the bed Her face was partially enveloped in the sheet, and her head sunk deep in a feather pillow. As I took hold of her wrist, she begged me to tell her the truth of her situation, for, she said, "I am not prepared to die, and leaat of all. here " This was her fifth day. Physician and nurse had successfully done their office, and, to all appearance, the symptoms were favorable On my assuring her to that effect, she raised her head, and leaning it upon her hand, ejaculated? 4- Thank God ! thank Clod with great emphasis. " I did not send for you," she continued. " because I have no faith in my physician; but I wished to be assured, from another than him, that I would recover. I am tormented by day and night with thoughts and dreams that make T - r ?J J t ? ^ should die of despair did I not believe that I may yet live to repent and reform."' I reassured her of her favorable symptom*, and requirod of her to dwell only on the certainty of that future of reform and usefulness she hoped for. I was about leaving her with her nurse, who had jast entered, when she nf asked me, imploringly, to call in on the morrow, as she had something to say which she felt she had not s'rength then to communicate When I entered her room the next morning she was awake, but did not notice my presence until I addressed her. It seemed I had driven 1 away a pleasing reverie, for her recognition was followed by a formally expressed "You are here To my different inquiries, she replied and remarked as follows: that she had slept for a few hours after I left; but since, until daylight, her wandering thoughts had raised visions of gloomy character; that she felt aow that she was not so well as yesterday, and piteously besought me te do my utmost to aye her. ' But you are doing well,Mary," I observed. " Ob, no ' no, sir ' I feel that I am not. 1 dread that I am not." On saying this she oovered her eyes with her arm, and sobbed loudly , ' Maiy'." said I, in as angry a tone as I oould counterfeit, " I came here to relieve your suffering, and to cheer you under your Mffliotion If you continue to aggravate your sickness by these demonstrations, and in my presence, too, the object will be better gained by my absence, lou cannot know upon what little joor life depends. If you continue to despond thus, even though you were much better, you will die. You are now safe?I say. safe, wanting only obedience to all that is required of you. For you, a girl of sense, to anticipate your fate by harboring a suspicion of the wont, is unaccountable weakness Cheer up* Had you the stength to stand up and look t ' at yourself in the glass, you would wonder, as I do. that you are taken to be ill. Let me see you smile, nay. laugh, if it is not too great an effort." The nurse handed me a potion for her. As I p1?o?d it to bar lips, she made a sour grimbf* ace, then, with the remark, "Am I not brave ?" swallow-d the whole of it ' Now." said she, " I feel like another Der son. Celeste, tell Emily I want to see her." ft In a few minutes the latter entered. \ ' (lire me your hand, Emily," she said. ' Forgive me for what I said to you yesterday. I know I hurt your feelings. Am I forgiven ?" " Certainly," was the reply of a young girl of melancholy sweetnem of countenance, who appeared touched by the explanation, or the cauie of it. They exchanged a few words, and I was lefi alone with Mary and the nurse. Before leaving the room the shutters had been opened for some purpose, which gave me an opportunity of seeing particularly the fea tures of my patient. Her face wu oval, her ieyes blue, and fringed by their almond-shaped line of lashes, a nose retrousse, her mouth larze and well-defined, and * <?hin ? j ? ? ? - ? " uvi uui wa.rMated a dimple that alone would beautify the entire expression of worse features. Her auburn hair jet retained the braids, though ruffled, which it had when *he was taken sick. I judged her to be aboat twenty years of age. Yet how difficult it is to estimate bv years a life which is crowded with events such as hers had recently experienced. W hen I returned in the evening her symptoms were not so favorable. The physician had ordered her to be kept free from intrusion. It appears that she dreaded to be left alone. \and, a* soon as I was gone, she was surrounded by the other girls of the house. I called the matron to me. and told her that when I was called in to the sick I made it a point to be oeond to the phy*iMan; that, from disobedience to his orders, in crowding the sick room & and talkinir to that i>?li?n? tli?? ?? L:,,:? 0 ? J ? ?MWJ ffVIO &UUOg W ber " She U convalescent," I continued "All she now require* is repose and quiet. These she must hare, if I have to pat a guard at the door, or I do not return." Complete compliance was expressed to my "Except Emily." said Miry. "She will not talk to me, and I have much comfort in her company " "Te tnis I consented. With wor*e promise for herself, and with increased sympathy of > her companions and attendant*, her hope of recovery was yet stronger than it had been With a "good night." and advice to ooax herself into sleep, for the prospect of repaying me for ay visits by teeing her improvement on the morrow.

Ithe evening, when I again called, to my horror | and dismay I perceived her with her head over the side of the bed. rap ported by Celeste, in vein attempts to continue a retching which bid been effective an hour before. " It is all over," she said. " My dream of life?is ftnished. Just, too?when everything of the future was so promising?so good. Ob. Mr. , do you hnow?that last night?I dreamed of home ? Father and brother were there" (here she sobbed so distressingly as to (smother articulation ) "Oh! it was a sweet meeting Before I awoke this morning I was so happy I tried to sleep again to continae tae dream, bat?aow?it is all orer; I mast die-and bare!" ? 1 "No. no, Mary," I replied, "not ao quid Yon have nothing to fear." ' Then i may hope, and will get well?'* I bowed affirmatively The nurse agai Ksed a cloth, saturated in cologne, over h< b and neck, and in a few minutes the luxi | riant sleep of the convalescent ?to1e over her To reassure myself of her condition, I ri mained for a half hour to see the physician, ei gaged, in the meantime, in looking at tl books and ornaments of the room. The physician came in and pronounced Mai entirely out of danger He gave her permi sion to sit up in bed the following day. an left orders for her future nourishment, sayii he would not call again until sent for. Th last remark had a telling effect. Mary's ey beamed with hope and joy. I was taking in leave, when she called me back and request* that I would coll the next morning to listen a recital that would be as strange to me aa woe Id be important to her that I should kno it. I made the appointment. As I entered the room I wan surprised i seeing Mary sitting on the side of the bed, h< leg? hanging down, partly uncovered, charged her more with indecency than iuipri deuce; told her that I had done for her to tl extent of my services, aod that it grieved m where there was so much promise, to see i early a departure from it. She threw herse in the bed, with her hands clasped togethi under the back of her head, while her aru protruded beyond and half concealed herfac Shu remained for a while silent; at length si looked Celeste and I alternately in the face, awaken in ua some new development. Secii we said nothing, she exclaimed? " Mr. , you have seen me through tl fever, but when I had it I did not foresee tl dangers that waited on recovery. What sha I do ? 0 tiod ! why did I not die ?" I asked what new phantom troubled her. 41 It is in remaining here?here, where scorn myself, and from whence I have not tl means to leave without submitting to a degri datiun that I loathe more now than eve Though, if it is inevitable, it will not bo lon^ and maybe my God will forgive me." " Explain yourself, but without excitemei to yourself." She began : " I believe I am well, or out of dange Now I seek a friend, such as I never knew tl value of until now; but you have done so muol and I have so little in only a grateful hear that I dare not ask you to continue your kic acts."
