The consequence was, that when I pushed the door open in a very bewildered frame of mind, and saw Langley smiling at me. I was terrified almost out of my senses, and came near fainting. To the best of my recollection, the household sat up nearly all night, though finally, after I had I heard the whole story, been made speechless over Virginia’s braverv, and hugged Fred.—now asleep in rho armchair.— Frauk dragged me off to bed.

The Tecumseh was Langley’s ship. Virginia came to live with us about two years before the commencmsnt of my story. She seemed to feel a sorrowful remorse about her husband, which was not grief, and yet it cast a shadow over her life. He was treacherous and false,” she said to me one day. “ and he broke my heart, but what right have I to judge him, and he died thinking himself unforgiven." Of Langley she never spoke. Well, that 44 perfect treasure " made her appearance. She was rather a young woman, with a pleasant, low voice, and very good manners for one of her station. I was charmed Certainly ti is girl seemed determined to please me ; she did hor work in a faultless. neat way; she amused the baby and played wi»h the twins ; and the baby had been more quiet than I had known him to be for weeks. So, after a month’s trial, I began to sing Alice’s praises and allowed her full control of her department, with a good many privileges.

Don’t be afraid, Fred; be a man like papa !" Over, gently, over the low railing ; and then, with a good shake of his person. Fred’s fat little legs trotted swiftly off toward the police min.

To my intense gratification, the pair were sentenced to a term at Sing Sing. Langley and Virginia were married very soon after.
