she learned the painful truth thru she was
not Roswcll Minwood's 6rat victim sinking
deep into her heart, chilling the warm blood I
and paling her usually roseate countenance,!
and she would have fainted, but pride cauio '
to her aid and lent its sustaining power.
A dangerous fire was burning in her bosom,'
a fire by which the love she bad eutertained '
lor Itoswcll was being burned down To dead
Thus it is with all ruaukind !" he ex
claimed. " I have been deceived, but my
revenge shall be as terrible as my desola
tion." Two years passed away and Medora Ar
ton had seen the worst nide of life. They
had been years of excessive dissipation to
ner, sua many a heart had heen made sor
rowful by her evil machinations. Her resi-1
dence was now at Washington. .Senators I
and men of power, charmed by the fascina-j
tion of her wit aud beauty, were her con-!
statu votaries. j
In the company of one of these admirers, j
one evening, the thought of Koswell came
upon Lr mind with much force, she could i
not repress uttering his name in along siyh. !
" Koswell Miiiwood,'' said her companion,
" that name is very familiar to me, did you !
know him too ?''
" IJut too well !" exclaimed Medora. j
Then you have heard of bis death ?" 1
" Head ! Koswcil dead :''
" Aye ! He died in New Orleans of a most
fearful disease, induced by bis profligate
: course oi lire, lie wss very much reduced ;
jiu circumstances before his death, as his:
I father having become disgu-ted with, as well
as disappointed in him, disowned hitn. I
jWas with him in his last moment, and 1
j never at,t to witness another such a death." j
j Medora uttered a shriek and fainted
heu consciousness returned she was alone.
"Time has indeed been short witbbiin,",
she exclaimed, " and I am still spared. My
; companions think I am happy. Could they
: witness the agony I suffer j could they aee
'the torn, bleeding heart, that beats beneath ,
this free exterior, how would they gladly
ren.aiu as they are, nor seek the lot of her j
' they envy." j
Tired of lil'u at the capital she returned
to her native city. Her emotions at the
sight of tho place where she bad spent her
earliest days, may be imagined but not
written. Kvery familiar pot that met her
eye brought up old and foud associations
aud the incidents of her childhood crowded
her memory as though they had occurred
but the day before. In one of ber afternoon :
rambles on th inert nith a. At,.' ml, she'
passed the minister under whose preaching
she bad been reared, whose voice had so
olteo spoken the sacred words to her childish
ears, and the power of whose eloquence hid
ou more, than oue occasiou brought tears to
her eyes. Her fame ha I reached his ears,;
and with a sorrowful look he passed her by i
without recogniiing her. ;
" , my (iod '" she exclaimed, half aloud,
" is it possible !" j
" What is tbe matter ?" queried her com- i
pauion, " did that gentlemau who has just
passed up know you ?'' !
" He did know me once, but not now.
(), bow deeply, how deeply I bave wronged
Iu an unpleasant frame of mind she sought
her lodgings, but rhe could not rest. The
image of the minister haunted ber mind,
and she passed a sleepless night. '1 lie next
day she sought to divert bur uiitid from the;
sunject, but to no purpose.
" No '. no !"' she exclaimed, " there is no
more happiness for me. I have ruined my
self, and brough tho grey hairs of my parents
with sorrow down to the grave. O, the
misery of that one false step. ' !
Mie took up a paper, but it contained '
nothing to chetr her mind. n the coit
trury, she read the death of her youngest
ri-ter, a bright, beautiful litttle girl, whom 1
the bad caught an occasional glimpse of, on
the street, and towards whom her heart had
many times yearned in sisterly fondness, j
" Why," she asked herself, after violent'
burst of passion, " why do 1 stay longer
away from those parents whose hearts must,!
by this circumstance, have become- more j
tubdued, and who, doubtless, stand ready to
receive me with open arm J 1 will no longer :
do so. I will seek tliem at once." I
Without waiting long for her jiood reso- i
lutiou to prow cold, she, like the piodigalj
sou, soU''ht her father's bouse. How alio I
trembled as she drew near its old-fa-hioned
front, and thought of the happiness that she
had there enjoyed. T here was the porch in
which she had often set on ber father's knee
lisleiiitiL' to his words of counsel and advice;
and the little window that lighted the room
she used to occupy, the very one out of which
she bad gaz,.d into the heavens, ami wit-
nessed the fall of that bright star OU the)
evening of her elopement. j
It was twiliyht. Her parents were sitting
one each side the cheerful (ire, for the,
wcuther was ijiiitti cool, and though every
thing around them seemed pleasant enough, I
their countenances gave evidence of that,
sorrow that was sapping the springs of their j
existence and shortening their stay upon
earth. The recent los of their only re-i
maining daughter had wounded their hearts,
alreah, and this night in talking of her, they j
talked also of Medora the t hild that lie
buried, not iu the grave, but ia sin and
wretched nens. i
How their hearts yearned to see her, to1
cla"p her to their bosom, to forgive and
forget all. so that she might comfort and '
support their declining powers aud he a
aoluce to the bint years of their life. And
Medora, at the same moment, how she
dreaded to touch the bell that would opeli
tho door of her father's house, knowing there
vould a chord vibrate in her owu heart
which she might hot have thy power to
Summoning all her courage, she rang the
bell. Thrt same old domestic that had been
accustomed nlwsyto wait upon her, opened
the door but knew her not. Shu inipiiied
for Mr. Arton, and in a few moments was iu
the prctLcc of Ltr parents. The old man
arose, motioned her to a scat, and inquired
bur business. Ho had not recognised her.
" You have just burled a little daughter,
have you not!"
" We have," be answered sorrowfully,
" and a severe blow the bereavement has
been to us."
" You have another living ?"
" Ah 1 we had snothor, but she 0 Ood 1
would she, too, had died at the early age of
her ulster. Site is worse than doad 1" and
tho old man buried his face in his hands
" It is of her, the erring one, that I come
here to speak," continued Medora with emo
tion, " think you there is no hope of her re
turning again to the path of virtue!"
" Alas, I know not!"
" Would she on her return ee that he
merits not forgiveness from her pareuls!"j

It was the happiest night Medora had
spent since rhe had ict't her home, and with
a joyful heart she sought her room. In a
few weeks the news of her return had spread
among the friends of the family, many of
whom received ber wiih cordiality. There
were a few who, proceeding upon the prin

student of one of our Statu Colleges had a
barrel of ale depo-ited in his room contrary
of course to rule and usage. Hu received a
summons to appear before the President,
who said :
" Sir. I am informed that you have a

" Yes, sir."
" Well, what explanation can you make.

We believe the witty student was dis
