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 liest hatred. 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 Lis teachings." 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 endure. 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 and wept. " 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 i II. t it ...i.l i !- t How gladly would we accord it. YouUrs.

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 ciple "once a sinner, always a sinner," thought they couid uot do so wi:h propriety. 1 wo years more nau passe, 1. lwoioyiui ' ... .. . li' v i t 1 ns e 1 years they had beeu to Jledora Arton.

One of the visitors at the Louse was a yoangr ctrrcjm-u r.um the rs.juiti, wtio li.id come North to spend a few months to recruit his health. He had been introduced to Medora by the same minister who-e quiet look, wiihout recognition 011 the street two years before, had operaleJ ro strongly upon her mind and turned :?r o repentance.

How Ai.k Strengthened Him. We be lieve we have got hold of an original anec dote that never was printed before. A 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 barrel of ale iu your room. " Yes, sir." " Well, what explanation can you make. " Why, the fact is, sir, my physician ad-1 vises me t try a little each day as a tonic, and hot wishing to stop at the various places here the beverage, is retailed, concluded 10 nave a narrei laa.'n ei my io.m,i. "Indeed. And have you derived any benefit from the use of it!" " Ah, yos, sir. When tLe barrel was first taken to my room, two days since, I could scarcely lift it. Now I can carry it with the greatest ease." We believe the witty student was dis charged without special reprimand. 1 .1 I. l . ... . ...... ' Pluck.

We are glad to notice among our (Xchanges the universal opinion, that after all that has been said about hoops after all the jeers and sneers, that for substantial utility and comfort, therr- is no substitute for it. Any defence of the hoop may be called seasoning in a circle. Hut they ena ble tbe wearer to dispense with the numer ous skirts so fatiguing in warm weather, and prevent the ungraceful effect of a soft fabric falling in a line curving towards the feet. This is so destructive of grace in the female ; ngure Hist a single view u enough to recon cile one to hoop, forever. A new iuu,tion, H'l f-f haa iti.t K... n n.t.tir.il !!.,! tlm ..
