' Let me try my skill at Mesmerism,' said
she, and he playfully ran her fingers through
clusters .of his hair, and lifting the dark locks
lrorp his temple, pressed her rosy lips on the
swollen and throbbing veins. Her kiss was
so sf)fl and still that, bad a jealous lover been
watching beside her, he would not have heard
a sound. Real and pure affection is always
quiet and delicate in its attentions ; and no
man of refinement can long 'love a wife whose
demonstrations of attachment are obtrusive and
Charles Carlton scarcely heard the kiss of
his wife, but he felt its thrill through every
pulse and nerve. It was the pledged affection
of a loving and true heart. His hand trem
bled, fell, and his eyes, as they me' hers, filled
with tears. Emily's heart sank within her, asthe
fear of some terrible calamity rushed upon her
mind ; but she strove to sustain herself, and
taking her husband's hand in both of hers, she
sat down by his side.
'Charles, dear Charles?' said she inquir

I am ruined !'
' Ruined! How? Why?'

' Any news this morning, Mr. Halford ?' said
John Folsom to the gentleman who entered bis
counting-room. He was a tall, pale man, with
a commercial looking face ; that is, bilious and
rather care-worn ; but the keen glance of his
eye was tempered by a benevolent smile, and
when he raised his hat, the high, broad, smooth
forehead bore the unequivocal stamp of a warm
heart and a good conscience.
'The only news of the morning is that Carl
ton has failed,' said Mr. Halford.
' Yes, I knew that last evening,' replied John
'Is it a total failure ? Or will he be doing
business again in six months V
'Radical: a thorough failure. Given up all.'
' That is rather an unusual course, remarked
Halford. ' Most of our broken merchants con
trive to secure a share for themselves. You
a-re his friend : why did you not advise him bet
ter?' ' Your pardon, sir, I never advise my friends,
it only offends them. Throw physic to the
dogs as soon.'
' I heard that the failure, was caused by sign
in for Cogswell & Co. - Was that true V
' Partly so. Carlton lost about twenty thou
sand dollars hy that firm ;! but then he might
have got ovei his embarrassments entirely, if
had not been so very squeamish.'
' Squeamism ! How do you mean ?'
1 Why, he applied to Col. Dillis. to whom he
was owing a considerable debt, and told him
how matters stood, and the reason he had for
believing he might retrieve his affairs, if he
could'obtain a loan of ten thousand for a few
months; and he offered j Dillis good security
for the money ; but the old Colonel knows how
to manage. He would not loan the cash, un
less be could have his debt likewise provided
mer, and Autumn's rich sheafy crown ; but the
energy of Nature is only the breath of the Al
mighty, the Creator ; her beauty is but the re
flection of his benevolence ; and her bounty
the overflowing of his ever enduring love for
the creatures he hath made. Rely on him, and
thou wilt never be forsaken, never destitute,
never in despair.
' We will trust in God, my dear husband,'
said Mrs. Carlton, as she wiped the tears which
all unconsciously to herself, had, for minutes, j
been raining from her eyes on the fair forehead
of her babe, as he stood on her knee, looking
up with an earnest gaze at his mother. He
had never before seen her face in sorrow. It
seemed to astonish, almost terrify him. 'Dear
Henry,' she continued, clasping him to her bo.
som, ' how I wish you could speak ! You
should tel! papa that we will think of him and
love him everv hour he is gone. But you will
soon learn to talk. Charles, I shall have no
thing Io do but teach Henry and write to you ;
and Paris is not quite to the end of the world.'
Charles Carlton kept his station by the open
window. A stranger, who had only remarked
the rapid glance of his eye, as it wandered from
earth to heaven, might have fancied him a poet
in the ecstacies of inspiration. Alas ! his
musings were of a sterner quality than poet's
dreams. He fell the reality of struggling with
himself. There are few occasions that more
deeply try the soul of a man than parting with
the only being he feels sure loves him. He is
Adam, going from his Paradise alone.
Emily suddenly started up with her infant in
her arms, and stood by her husband's side. She
had caught the sound of coming wheels, and
she knew he must go. There is no indulging
in sentiment when a rail-car or steamboat is
waiting. But love, ay, real affection, is as j
deeply expressed inone word as in twenty.
There was such a look of love, of unutterable
affection in the tender smile which dimpled her
pale cheek, as she held, the babe to her hus
band for his farewell kiss, that it quite over
came the heart it was intended to encourage.
Had she wept or complained, Charles Carlton
would have rallied his manly tortitude to com
fort and sustain her ; but now he only felt that
he was obliged to leave all he held dearest on
earth, he was the sufferer ; and, clasping his
dear ones to his bosom, his kisses were the
only farewell his lips could frame.
" ' And is he jjone V Oh sudden solitude,
How oft that fearful question will intrude !
'TVas but an instant passed, and here h" stood !
And now without the portal's front she rushed,
And then, at length, her tears in freedom gushed."
The love of show, alas, that it should warp
Our kindliest feelings by its selfish pride !'
' So your beautiful friend, Mrs. Carlton, the
brightest star in the galaxy of fashion, has been
shorn of her beams, they tell me, and has left
Philadelphia, and buried herself somewheie in
the shades of Germantown,' said Mrs. Mears.
4 Say rather, she is ruralizing in German
town. I cannot endure to think f such a total
eclipse for noor Emily,' said Mis Arabella

couraging me to exertion, and I really enjoy
my toil, but when I go to the solitude of my

me with a smile and a kind word, I am desot

' I have a precious piece of news for you, my

pression to some angry passion or selfish ap.

his feelings which could never bav been cor.

so much of jewels from the mines of earth,
when she holds the key of the heart's treasures I
I ask myself what amount of wealth would hava

babe's first simple sentence has done ? I can
answer before God, that uo amount could have
made me so happy.
