It was an evening of extreme beauty—a salubrious air filled the welkin, and the fast waning twilight rolled away to give place to the sable fcurttkins of night that soon unfolded their spangled drapery around the confines of the world. The rustling silks and gay attire of Ihe wealthy, the industrious mechanics, the tattered be|jgar,. the idle and drunken, all joined in the motley thr«aig, that passed to and fro upon the side walks of the streets. • 'Foster, you reflecting nonentity—you reader of pavements—why don't you cast up your eyes and say "how do you do" loan old friend? 'Why, George, you are quiie a stranger, and 1 am truly glad to see you,' returned the inierrogated, shaking George cordially by the hand. '1 am cursed glad I encountered you, for my methodistical brother has been lecturing me, fnd his letters of morality, although they excite the risible faculties, invaribly, upon mature reflec ion, give me the infernal blue devil's' and,' Wilton took the arm of his companion. 'Where shall we go, George?' inquired Foster. 'To the widow's, you dog. We'll take a glass together, and for a desperate stake at W-'s— for unless I retrieve my losses, 1 am fearful (ieorge Wilton will not long be able to maintain the respectability of his family." '1 have taken an oath never to stake a dollar on a card again.' 'Nonsense—you are jesting.' 'Never more serious. George Wilton, I iRt altered man.' 'And I pray you, .Mr. Uefonnalion, what has wrought this change? inquired the astonished W Ion. 'My losses have removod the film and folly wove to blind me. 1 turned my eyes towmd my home, and there I saw a mother bowed down by age—her sole dependence upon her child—I arrousea every energy, and strove to forget ihe past, and by honest industry to regain the footing I had lost in society; I have partily achieved that purpose; and I assure you, George, 1 never was happier in my life —anil it would give me unspeakable pleasure to see you--' 'Follow your example,' interrupted George with a sarcastic laugh—'uo, no, Foster, you will yourself, cameleou like, iK>on change your color again. 'i>io, you are deceived in mo—on my honor 1 am an altered mun.' 'Well, well,' observed George, after observing his companion for a moment,'! think it was high time an alteration hud taken place, for you certainly carried things with a high and impiudeiit hand —but you will puriicipaie wiih me in a glass, or, it you are a meiubor of the temperance society, wh;' 'Oh no, George, uhhou^,:i 1 deem drinking a veiy great evil, and depieciitle Ihe bow I as u fiend thai has introduced discord into many a happy inmily, and poisoned the youthful pmspccts of aspiring ambition, yet, in inodeiation, I can tuku a glas« and pass a social hour with my f, icnd uiih as much dy-ight as any one,' 'Well' Foster, you and Henry arc light—tjio path to virtue is easier trod thuii the path lo evil; but the fuel is, I am in u suiupe from v^hich 1 mUNt extricate myself or luiii will ensue. I will iioi piOKs you to go with me, (o gi'i.d bye, and may loiiune favor you, whatever may U the late ul'Georgu W il-ton.' They sepurnted, and Wiltun hurried down an obscure street, and Dsccmling a (light ol bteps, soon found himself enveloped in darkness. 'Who is there?'inquired a feeble \ uiee. Mt is me,' was the lejily. 'What do you wanif' 'Open the door you hug, or cur-.c me if 1 ilon'i sliiver it to atoms.' This barUt summon Ivud the desin d L-tllet, uiid ihe door was opened by un old wumun, who:>e haggard features betrayed the wietctied life ^he hud led; her hair of black and giuy, hung upon her sTioulders in matted lock«, hei ey ws weie »mail and light, and deep set in liei head; while her fa^«, wrinkled by dissipation, guvu hei mote ihe appearance of a fury than a niortul, 'Whcie is Norloii/inquiicd the intiuder, imja-iientiy. 'Vou'll find lii'iiup stuiis,' leUiMitd the old woman,'but 1 wish hu was in h—Tund ihe old cione turned to depart. 'Slay — where is she?' 'In yon ehumb<jr, whining like a chained pappy.' 'Give me the key.' 'It is in the door.' George paused a monirnl and lisiuued—his heart smote hull as the mouns of the unfuMunate broke u()oii hi-seur fium the inner apartment —ho unlock t'd the duor and entering the room, throw liiinaill by the side of its unfortunate occupant. 'George Wilion, what receptacle of vice is this Into which you have brought meT Jane, 1 am a ruined man; your ftithor discovered the manner i>f life 1 have followed, and that my fortune bas been lavished in foul dishonor. He revoked his consent to our union, and banished me from his house. 1 b*gg««l. entreated—yw, Jine, I kuelt to him—promised lo r«(brm my way*. His answer was, ho had raiher see you in your while shroud than the wife of such a base profligate!—I was desperute—mad—love blighted made a maniac of mo, and while my conflicting |»asaions thus warred within my tenip««tious busoin« 1 deceived and inveigled you hither. I ha\o wronged, deeply wronged you, Jane, but my love was the cause all." Mho looked at him, and that look betrayed the weakness of the soul. The big tear of eomjwssion flowed down her pale cheek—a smiling forgivenass lighted up her blue eyes. A few tears and vehem ont protostttiioiis. and (usoi g«- eiimpleu d his m. ;<»i > home, paieni.s and ' ' ... , . i sake. of The house in wlneli slie rosided wu» known bu! lo few, and its fronuentors preserved the utmost ¡hj-crecy. Here Gei rg<-, wiih his const cintel, had passed nearly all his liiive since^ the'dealh of his father—and here il was that ihe gaming table hi».l stripped him of his weulih. Wiihin ihose walls how many an ill-fated wretch has immincd hi fate!—how many on innocent,confiding victim been deluded into crime's excess of wo! It was u lofiv building, and lilled with costly furniture, rieh mirrors, reflecting haggard faces, curpeis of sufiesi texture, sideboards and tables, groaning under the luxuries of the season, liut whore was content?— where? '' In this den of iniquity, secl 'dcd from th'} world, Jane became the-ofGeo gn Wilton;and ns ho passed her fathers door the d< muniac laugh ol fated revenge often echoed in^the euis »»f .ihe des-tracted parent. He knew not what htid' bocome of his cnild; scaich had every where been jniade.— George was suspected, bul nothing could be proven satisfaclorally aguinsi him; and the old man con tented himself by indulging u hoj)e thai .she had at least united herself honorably wiih Wilion; and although he doubled that he wou^l be hupi ■• in tha union, yet he felft that she was not whollyj lost l>. him. CHAl'TER IV. It was a could night in January—the w hi'o" carpet of winter covered the streeis, und ihe chif breath ofan easlerly windswept furiously by. The hour was late, and naught inter.'upied the i'j(»o>eoi the city save the stentorian voice of the beniinel ol the night as he announced the passing hour. >Sud denly ihealurin bell pealed forih the well^ known suinmuns, and in a few nn»inents the streets were alive wiih the siariled throng. •Where is the fire?'inquired ontf. J 'Tnere, down that alloy.' 'Come on, Ixjys, pull away ?' shouied the diiectoi of one of the engines, und the whole inn tilude pressed onward lo the spot. . The flaming element raged wiih increasing fury —embers flying in the air looked like swunns »>! birds in the red glare above. indefai. gal'lo firemen now used every e.xertion, and so devoted were they to Ihe tusk tint per.sonal .safety seenftd to be wholly forgotten by them. ^ As¿ihe «treams ol water fell upon the blazing pile, sable eolun ns ol smoke ascended, enshrouding in gloon. eveiy la.np in the heavens. 'Gracious God!' e.xcluinied a youth,as ho bcl^t Id a man with u female in his arm.s stiuggling thioiigh a window on the roof. A cry of horror hmsi fiom the multitude below us they saw ly.i perilous siina-tion. A silence ensued—mule terror seemed to paralyse every one.

Driven to desjieratiwn, he in a monism of ezcilenieat murdered the bag that presided over tho broUwl, and endeavored to conceal bis crime by buryiug tbe body m the ashes of the building. A> the lire be^n to gain power he stood watching its progress with a fiendish exultation, but suddenly it occurred lo bint that he might ]t«rh«ps posses.i himself of the old woman's hidden wealth.
