It was a avene of wretchedneaa, want, and mise

enlist the foeling and symiathie of Ihe imwt ael
fiish. The regular tenant of the cellar were the
colored nian and hi wife, who gained a scanty and
precarious subsistence, as they were able, by casu
al employment in the street, or in neighbouring
hisjsr. Having in suniuier made nu provision fur
the inclemencies of winter, they were then utterly
destitute- They bad sold their article of clothing
and furniture, one by one, to provide themselves
with bread, until all were diapucrd of, but Iwo bro
ken chairs, a box thai served lor a table, and a
small piece of carirtmg, which answered the dW
ble purMMj of a bed and covering. Into this de
partment of poverty were the mother and daughter
lately ejected from a place equally destitute of
the comfort of life introduced. The former
wa a woman of alasjt fifty years, but the deep
furrow in her face, and her debiliatnd frame, be

and pale, and Iter haggard countenance and tattered
dress indicated a full measure of wretchedness-
Her daughter sat beside her, and rested ber bead
on ber mother's lap. Hlie wa about twenty-five

anguish was in Iter heart.
Hisirs passed on. In lite gloom of midnight
the girl awoke from a disturbed ami uiirefreshing
slumls'r. She wa soflering from acute pain, and,
in Ihe alnHwl total darkness which pervaded the
the apNrtment, raised her hand to her mother's
face. " Mother," said site, in faltering accents,
