but thara aha waa, aa intimaia with W boase
and averything that oonoarned it, as a limpet U
with its shell, and as iguartint, too, as that ex -
elusive animal is of tha. outoide world. Her eoo-
nectton with that world waa of a peculiar kind,
She never visited it but when driven bv tbe furor
of cireumstancet.and then it waa aa a lielenguer
el garrison makes a aortie against the enemy.
Her natural foea were the trades-people who
dealt in anything she wanted, and tha result
of a conflict between them, if it involved but the
fortunes of a half-penny, colored her whole day.
It waa not frequently however, thai aba waa
driyen to this ajrjrreseive wiuf.ir., t my landla
dy waa a great dealer at tbe door, and lived in a
perpetual hostility with the veudert ofsprutu
0, and live soles. -
Her house, or at lensftue parlor floor which I
inhabited, bore a curknts reseuiMancaMa liemelf,
being a little, spare, neat.olean-looking old Boor.
It consisted of a sitting-room and lied-rMim in
excellfiil praeerration. Wbnt the ago of the
furniture may have been, it was impossible even
to guess, bat Sir all practical purpose., it was as
good as new. There was no gluee on it there
never is in a' lodging house but neither waa
there single grain ufdunt. Though kept con
stantly clean, it bad never been rubbed in its
life; and that waa the secret of it. longevity. The
carpet, though, aa whole as the rest, wiw not in
either respecta ao fortunate, lta color Waa ao
completely faded, that you c uld not tell what it
bad originally been; the pattern might have boon
matter of edloMi,C(introvorsj; and u exhibited a
decided g'ing-way from the door to the Sre-place.
ita dimensions might be thought scanty, lor it
did nut cover the entire Moor; but then, it most
be considered, that this o rpet was intended for
conilurt of the lodgers' feet, not of those of the
six cane bottomed chairs ranged at wido inter
rala along the walls. On tbe mantel-piece
there stood a lion of Derbyshire spar, and Hank
ing him on each side a vusc of stone-ware the
background being formed by a long, narrow,
horriio tul mirror, divided into time Cutiipart
mems, with a black frame,
lucse apartiueiila for which I paid twelve aliil
ings a week, were not particularly cheerful.
They had, indeed, rather a cold, solitary look; and
sometimes in the morning at breakfast time, 1
would fain even huve prolonged the miiiisering
ol thediny niaid-of-all-work, by aekingqtieiuoua.
But Molly had douLtlcht been ordered not to
.peak lo Ilia lodgem, and therefore she answered
curtlyi and slamming down, or whisking off tbe
things she went her way. I hud at lemh recourse
lo my landlady hemcl!, and' found her ao much
more communicative, Unit I auddeiily oonceived
the wild idea of being able to select Iroin her re
minaiceg. e. the male, ul for a st .rj wlh which
1 bnd already reaoled to de 1 .lit tlie public, if I
could ouly think of a plot. She was not nt all
disinclined to speak. Indeed I believe she would
have uisde no scruple id le.ling we tbe history
of all her lodgers, Irom the epu,:b when thing,
begitu'to'n t le down afier the -oriiinu t'onipiest;
