" f-he is nut dead, ma'am ; said John,

He placed the light form on a couch, to
which the mother directed him, and waited
for u return of tranquility to permit him to
obey the la-t orders of his mistress. And
while he waited, dishonest heart was deeply
moved by the lamentations of the alllieted
woman, in she strove, for some time vainly,
to recall her inanimate child to life.

John bad probably returned from Miss
Smith's. John was not alone. A lady
entered the room, a single glance at whose

John wa-, forthwith, di.-patelicd for a phy
sician while he was absent, Mrs. Kerry
obtained many particulars of the sad his-

pen to sympathy, aud readily poured its
errors into thecal- of the ag'iit ot mercy.
She was a native of a distant state; she
had married early, -Hid with bright prospects
of happiness ; hut her husband jieldedto
the temptation of wine, and wa.ted first his
own patrimony, and then hers, in the pro-iiii-euous
extravagance vv hieh intemperance
commonly induces. He then returned, bring
ing Ids wife and child to this, his native
city. Soon after their arrival he died as
a jury declared an accidental death, leav

Mrs. Hcrry listened with interest to the
widow's niornfiil recital j many particulars

M rs. Sanford could not resist tnis generous

down to their own level. I wen'-! not speak
so contemptuously of the habits of i.,y sex,
if I did not know that they were capable
of something: better ; and if it were lntwiih
the hope that tliej- would raise themselves
above that detestable littleness of soul, and
become what, I am confident they might be,
not only equal, but instructive companions
to the other Sex. I will not believe that
woman is iuf, rior to what some wo, ill cali
the "nobler sex," and others would dignify
by denominating them, "the lords ,.1 crea
tion." Hut 1 do believe that, from this ve
ry cause, arises more than half the eonl.iiue-
ly which is bestowed up-m ti
