"Well, sir, I cm tiki care of my

as they were tallog their tea together
la their little parlour, one delightful
summer afternoon. Just at that mo
tneut, and while "the words were jrei
00 her tongue, the door opened, and
Win Polly Caw entered the rom,oa
one of her flyioj afternoon visits.
Julia could not avoid coloring up a
little at this auddeo intrusion 1 lor this
young lady a visits were aUaya intru

suspected she bad dropped in at a mo
Bicnt when her company was not the
most desirable. However, aho got
- herself aeated, and entertained her
good neighbor with a long history of
the borne conccroa of every family to
the neighborhood, about three hours
long. There was a minute and detailed

of all who were not invited, among
whom she was most careful to remind
that she, Julia, was onc the domes

of the old widower who lived on the
Appleby farm, betokening an ap--rtttehatg

daughter, and who were jealous there
at 1 and a hundred other topics, equal
ly interesting aod profitable, were all
apread hut on the carpet. -.
Mr." Pcllew had made-his - escape
from the tabic, and Miss Polly did d
fail to comment largely on the savage
' uTtmcUbility "f husbands, insisting
that they were as restless and unhap
py in the marriage noose as caged up
tygers, od instancing how gay, and

sympathetic pityt for her. She could
not; for her life understand what all

Nor was Mr. Pcllew to escape Urn
new and to him unaccountable lhange
of the current of feeling among h
neighUrs towards them. The first
symptom he saw was a colJoesi and
shyness oa the part of his wife's rela
lives 1 some of them even refusing to
speak to him. The female part of his
acquaintance sco'.ded at him j and what
was worse, he thought his customers

It wit now time to rouse op. , At

view them with perfect iacrcdulity,
not being willio? to believe, scarcely,
the evidence of his senses. itosrTne
demanded the cause of this strange
treatment! and with aorae difficulty
ascertained that it arose from the srp-
s ration about to take place between
bim and his wife ! and the cruel man
nerin which he had used her! He
demanded the author of the story, and
was referred to an old gentleman who
had told hia informer t the old man

he had affirmed that she overheard
Mr. Pellew and his wife engaged in a
terrible quarrel, and even heard a dis
tioct affirmation on her part that she
would leave him.
Mr. Pcllew now hit upon an expe
dient to bring matters to a close at
once. He invited all auch of his, and
his wife's relatives, his neighbors, bis
creditors, &c. ss were within his
reach, to meet at hia house, on bust
neaa of the utmost importance. About
twenty assembled, among them Miss

principal mouth-pieces in the village,

Cornered up so unexpectedly and sud
denly, she candidly confessed that the
only foundation for what she had said
waa, that 00 the afternoon she had paid
the first visit mentioned, she had heard,
s she entered, Mrs. Pcllew say,
" Well, air. I can take carr of myself."
And she wished to know if Julia Pel-
lew would deny this. Julis replied

A burst of astonishment succeeded.
Miss Gaw ran out of tbe room like a
woman who had lost her senses. The
worthy couple received the congratu

heads, and prejended to be mighty
glad the truth had come out, it was
with a grace that but half concealed
their sorrow. Thereafter not a sylla
