It was a bitter December evening on wLhich I paid
him my fifst visit. Nearly the whole of the gloomy
Keckidedftreet in which his , mansion was situated,
; was covered with straw, and men were sationed
about to prevent uoise in any shape. 'The ample
knocker was muffled, and the bell unhung, lest the
noise of either should startle the aristocratical inva
lid. The instant my carriage, with its muffled roll,
: drew up, the hall-door sprung open a3 if by magic ;
? -for the watchful porter had orders to anticipate ail

was therefore led into a magnificent apartment, where
' her Ladyship, with two grown-up daughters, and a
young man m the Guards' uniform, sat sipping coffee
for they had but mst iett tne dmingroom. The
Couhtes looked pale and dispirited. "Doctor ,:

I and a sleek servant, all pampered and powdered, in
p. sotto voce tone, informed the Countess that his

never saw any thing like it before, nor have I since
I never in my life sat in such a yielding luxurious

in a feeble Voice. The valet looked at me I nod-
ded acquiescence, and he instantly brought the Earl
a wineglass iuu.
" Another another another" gasped the Earl,
his face suddenly bedewed with a cold perspiration.
A strange expression flitted for an instant over the
features: his evelids drooped: i there was a little
twitching about the mouth
" Pierre ! Pierre ! Pierre ! call the Countes3 !" said
I, hurriedly, loosing the Earl's! shirt-neck, for I saw
he was dying: Before the valet returned, however,
while the muffled tramp of footsteps was heard on the
stairs,, approaching nearer nearer nearer it was
all over ! the haughty Earl of had gone, where
rank and riches availed him nothing to be alone
with God. ' i
On arriving home that evening, my mind saddened
with the scene I had left, I found my wife Emily
sitting by the drawing-room fire, alone, -and in tears.
On enquiring the reason of it, she told me that a char
woman who had been that day engaged at our house,
had been telling Jane my wife's maid who, of
course, communicated it to her mistress, oneof the
most heart-rending tales of distress that she1 had ever
listened to that poverty and disease united could
inflict on humanity. My sweet wife's voice, ever
eloquent in the cause of benevolence, did not require
much exertion to persuade me to resume my walking
trim, and go that very evening to the scene of wretch
edness she described. The cliar-woman had gone
half an hour ago, but left the! name and address of
the family she spoke of, and after learning them, I set
off. The cold was so fearfully intense, that I was
obliged to, return and get a " comfortable" for my
neck and Emily took the opportunity to empty all
the loose silver in her purse, into my hand, saying,
"you know what to do with it, love!" Blessing her
benevolent heart, I once more set out on my errant of
mercy. With some difficulty 1 found out the neigh
bourhood, threading my doubtful way through a laby
rinth of obscure back-streets, lanes, and alleys, till I
came to "Peter's Place,? where the objects of my
visit resided. I began to be apprehensive for the
safety of my person and property, when I discovered
the sort ot neighbourhood 1 had got into.
Do ,ju know where some people ot the name of
O'llurdle live?" I enquired of; the watchman, who
was passing, bawling the hour, j
" Yis, I knows two of that 'ere name hereabouts
which Hurdle is it, sir?" enquired the gruff guardian
of the night.
" I really don't exactly know the people I want
are very, very poor."
" Oh ! oh ! oh! I'm thinking they're all much of a
muchness for the matter of that! about here." he re--
plied, setting down his lantern, and slapping lus
agcunei, ma Biucs iu Keep iiimseii warm.
" But the people I want are very ill I'm a doctor."
" Oh, oh ! you must be meaning 'em 'oose son was
transported yesterday 1 His name was Tim O'Hur
dle, sir though some called him Jimmy and I was
the man that catch'd him, sirI did ! It was for a
robbery in tins here" h
"Ay, ay I dare say they aiNi the people I want.
Where is their house ?" j;
He at length gained the sick chamber.
Now, reader, who, while glancing over these
sketches, are perhaps reposing m the bed of luxury,
believe me when I tell you, that the scene which I
shall attempt to set before you, jas I encountered it, I
teel to beggar all my powers of description ; and that
what you majr conceive to be exaggerations, are infi
nitely short of the frightful realities of that evening.
Had I not seen and known for myself, I should scarce
have believed that such misery existed.
" Wait a moment, sir. an' Til fetch von a lio-hr "
said the woman, in a strong Irish accent; and I stood
still outside-the door till she returned with a rushlight,
stuck m a blue bottle. I had time for no more than
one glimpse at the haggard features and filthy rag
ged appearance of tlie bearer, with an infant at the
breast, before a gust of wind, blowing through an
unstopped pane in the window, suddenly extinguished
the candle, and we were left ; in a sort of darkness
visible, the only object I could see being a faint Vlow
of expiring embers on the hearth. " Would your ho
nour be alter standing still a while, or you'll be thred

down, she endeavoured to relight the candle by the
embers. The poor creature tried in vain, however ;
for it seemed there was but an inch or two of candle
left, and the heat of the embers! melted -it away, and
the wick fell out. U i
" Oh, murther there ! What will we do?" ex
claimed the woman, "that's the last bit of a candle
we'veain the house, an' it's not a fathing I have to
buy another!" I
"Uome send and buy another," said l, giving
her a shilling, though I was' obliged to feel for her
hand. '? M .

" I'm sorry it's not a seat we have that's fit for vou,
sir," said the woman, approaching towards where I
was standing ; " but if I may make so bold as tb take
your honour's hand, I'll guide you to the only one
we have barring the floor a box by the hre, and
there ye'll sit perhaps till she comes with a light." I
" Anywhere anywhere, my good woman,'? said
I ; " but I hope your daughter will return soon, for I
have not long to be here," and giving her my gloved
hand, she led me to a deal box, on which I sat down
and she on the floor beside me. I was beginning to
ask her some questions, when the moaning of a little
child interrupted me.
"Hush! hush! ye little divel hush ! ye'll be
waking your poor daddy ! hush '.go to sleep wid
ye !" said the woman, in an earnest under-tone.
"Oh och mammy! mammy! an isn't lit so
could 1 I canH sleep mammy," replied the tremu
lous voice ot a very young child ; and directing my
eyes to tne quarter irom wnicn tne sound came, J
fancied I saw a poor shivering half-naked little crea
ture, cowering under the window,
"Hishl lie still wid ye, ye infortunat' little dive
an' ye'll presently get something to eat. Welha'n
none of us tasted a .morsel sin' the morningr, Doctor !?
The child she spoke to ceased itsnioanings instantly
but I heard the sound of its little teeth cnattpnng,
and of its hands rubbing and striking together. Wei
it mignt, poor wretcn ior l protest tne room was
nearly as cold, as the open air ; for besides tlie want
of fire, the bleak wind blew in chilling gusts through
tne DroKen panes 01 ine winnow.
" Why, how many of you are there in this place.

she continued, bursting into tears:- " Och, an7 won

her baby's hand; "och, och! that the little cratur
had niver been born .'"
I heard footsteps slowly approaching the room ; and
presently a few rays of light flickered through the
chinks and fissures of the door, which was in ja mo
ment or two pushed open, and " Sal" made'her ap
pearance, shading the lighted candle iu her hand,
and holding a quartern loaf under her arm. She had
brought but a wretched rushlight, which she hastdy
stuck into the neck of the bottle, and placed it on a
snen over tne nre-piace ; anu men what a scene J
The room was a garret, and the sloping ceiling if
such it might be called made it next to impossible to
move anywhere in an upright position. The mock
ery of a window had not one entire pane of glass in
it ; but some of the holes were stopped with straw,
raigs, and brown paper, while one or two Were not
stopped at all. There was not an article of furniture
in tne place ; no, not a bed, chair, or table of any
kind ; the last remains of it had been seized for ar
rears of rent eighteenpence a week by the horrid
harpy, their landlady, who lived on the ground-floor
The floor was littered with dirty straw, such as swine
might scorn but which formed the only couch of
this devoted family. The rushlight eclipsed the dy
ing glow of the few embers so that there was not
even the appearance of a fijp. And this in a gar
ret facing the north on one of the bitterest and
bleakest nights I ever knew. My heart sunk within
me at witnessing such frighifiil misery and destitu
tion, and contrasted it, for ail instant, with the aris
tocratical splendour, the exquisite luxuries, of-my last
patient. Lazarus and Dives The woman! with
whom I had been conversing, was a mere bundle of
filthy rags a squalish, shivering, starved creature,
holding to her breast a half-naked infant, her matted
long hair hanging loosely down her back, and over her

snouiuers ; ner uaugmer oar was in line pjignt a
sullen, ill-favoured slut of about eighteen, who seemed
ashamed of being - seen, and hung her head like a
guilty one. She had resumed' her former station on
some straw her bed in the extreme corner of the
room, where she was squatting, with a little creature
cowering close beside her, both munching rave
nously the bread which had been purchased.- The
miserable father of the family was seated on the
floor, with his back propped against the opposite side
of the fire-place to that, which I occupied, and held a
child- clasped loosely in his arms, though he had
plainly ialien asleep, u what a wretched obiect
a foul, shapeless, brown paper cap on his head, and a
ragged fustian jacket on his back, which a beo-trar
might have spurned with loathing.
I he sum of what the woman coinmunieatfd to me wag,

only means of subsistence were a paltry pittance from the

than all the rest, completely broken the hearts of both
