One evening when Michel returned to tho chtdot, ho found the slrungT platting liu; long irfsst'.i of Annette, who wns inno- cently laughing at thn uwkwardnuss with which he formed the operation. Michel had, from her infancy, always reserved thin tusk as a labor of love for himself; ami his t'twlings could not have been more wounded Imd lio discovered her in the annis of the stranger. "How, fui.liloss girl exclaimed lie, and is it corny to this 1 Is all shame gonu, that you let a stranger touch those trustees, that my hands alone have heretofore press- ed?

Tlie stranger, alarmed by his violence ttiut impetuosity, the cause of which he, for thu first time, clearly discornod, and deep- ly pained tlvil liu should havn furnished the occasion for the devulopement of a passim which now raged with such fury, fled in pursuit of Michel, leaving AnneKe over- whelmed will) surprise and grief. Dread- ful wore the nuffuringt: of tho poor girl, as hour after hour departed, bringing with them no tidings of her lover or his pursuer. At early dawn, after a night of such wretchcduens as slie had ever previously hot-1> a stranger to, she stood in front of the chulel, straining her eyes in the hope of discorning her lover; when hor young sis- ter descried a figure in the distance, and pointed it out to her. The most fearful apprehensions filled her breast, for there vtus but one figure to be vueti, and thai with the quick sight of )ove tho discerned was not his. A Ins! tho loars of Annette wore but too wi'll founded. Uuraiiil, thu yoiinj; artist, only rsturnod to prepare for the. reception of the of tiie Michel, which, after a long search, was C'.V'na to the barking of his dog, in the very spot whence, but a few days before, lie had res- cued him who was the innocent cause of the groundless jealousy that lad to his own destruction. Whether the unhappy youth had wilfully precipitated himself into the yawning gulf, or ihat in the rapidity of his flight he had overlooked his victniiy of it, and BO had accidently fallen in, was never bruin. I'erlecily did all she WHS told to ought to have known that eren then tha evil spirits that haunt these wild mountains were planning his destruction So raved the poor woman, in all tho in. coherence of grief that unsettled her rea- son, until some of the inhabitants of the nearest hamlet came to remove tlie'corpse for interment, whet, uttering n piercing shriek, and clasping it in her arms she fel! senseless on the comn and when raised was found to be deac. Annette had lost all consciousness of Ihe misery around her, in a brain fever, which kept her hovering between life and death during many days. When health once more began to tinge her pale cheek, it was discovered with sorrow by Durnnd, who had watched over her with unceasing nolicitude and unwarying cure, lliut rea.-on reussoime 1 not its empire in her nnd gentle, she cto.witli docility of the most obedient was utterly inca- pnbteofthe reflection of sf If government. Dnrand considered he was the rauMe though the innocent one, of the afflictions that had befitlUm these poor families, insisted on be. corning their support for the future. He prevailed on the helpless old Martin Vig. j nolles to accompany him wi'h his two daughters lo Paris wherw havint; establish' ed them in his home, he left nothing un. done to piomole their comfort. Fortune, too, favoured ttie worthy young man who so religiously impost d duties, for his pic- tures, justly admired, produced such high prices, that afier a few years, he secured a handsome competence, and became the happy husband of the pretty Fanchon, the si.ilerof poor Annette, to whom he had given an education that rendfirfd her every wny suitable to bo the companion of a per- son who hud a cultivated rnuid. Old Mar- tin Vigriolles lived to marriage of hia Fanchon, and died blessing his children. And poor Annette still survives, innocent, gentle, and fondly buloved by sinter and Uutiutd, with whose little children she de lights to play, nnd offering subjects for his pencil, the rcpriiieiUalton of which'often draws crowds of aJmirers around them in tho gallery of the Louvre. gradual reform, and anon I y the convul- sive shock of revolution, friim the few to the many.

BX With the sentiments already noticed, and with the structure of society wtucli engen- ders them, the sentiment of contempt for labor and poverty la insepurubly connected. Whf're society is clividuiJ inio clnsues by horednaty disiinctions cluss crtMted lo possess, to Rnjoy, to to be hon- orud, and another ela.-n d.os.ined to obtain by toil a scanty sjIfeU'ianue, or in mora furtunato itis'.anccs a humble competency is of course dishonoitsd. There those tyho are born lo labor fael that their lot is degradation, they ure made'To feel it by ull tho arrangements in society. Hu- man nature avery where, and utidur all po- litical institutions is prone enough to de- spise labor, and to honor aa the favorites of fortune or of Providence those who have nothing to do; but in the state of society of which ure are speaking, thftt propensity instead of being the author of our nature designed it should be, is pam- pered to a monstrous growth. Man WHS made for employment, made to provide for hiinielf, and to enjoy what he hna the more for its being tho fruit of his industry; and that constitution of society only is in ac- cordance with constitution of individual man, in which each individual has scope for tho exercise of his powers, and is stim- ulated to a wholesome activity. Society is not yet so consiituted in the old world though by successive changes it is continu- ally approximating towards such a consti- tution. Meanwhile tho oKJ coirempt for labor remains, acting and re-acting between ihe two great classes into which society is mere consumers, despising tho producers, and the producers therefore despising unproductive consjmors blessing tho-nmlves as the fa- vorites of heaven, and tlie p.-oducers, on the other hand, envying tha consumers and ever learning to hate them. In our own country, different sorts of happy by living iu tho titutt and pomp of aristocratic laziness. And BO in spite ol all such influences, the fact will stund, Ihat here all the political power i) in the hands of those who live by indus ry and thai other fact, that the few who can live with- out labor, are too few and too scattered lo constitute a class, and that of them not one in five is willing to live without some active and useful employmer t. Nor have I forgotten that, by a mournful anomaly in the political organization of i onie portions of our country an anomaly contradictory to all the principles and tendencies of the American civilization labor is in Tho -mindt'd of the few persons collected from the neigh- baring hamlets were disposed lo adopt the latter supposition, while those luss gou J-im- tured, declared their conviction that thu deceased, driven to madness by jealousy, had thrown himself into the chasm where mutilated remains were found a belief in which they were strengthened by the frantic aelf-uccusattous of the wi etched Annette, who, with piercing cries, declared herself to be the cuusa of Fearful was the picture presented at the two chalets, so lately the scene oi peace nnd content.

Those employments which require high intellectual and moral qualifications, cannot but be regarded among us as more honorable than mere muscular drudgery for it is naturally pre- sumed that man is furnished with those personal qualities which are necessary in his employment. Still, with us, no sort of honest lubor is dishonorable. Our coun- try has thousands of legislators and magis- trates who cultivate their own acres with their own hands, and who think none the less of themsUves on that ac- coun'.and aro none the less thought of by their fellow-citizens. But under other systems the different kinds of tabor, instead of being more or leas honorable, are more or less dishonorable. ihe highest class is supposed to find: its honor and its felicity in dome nothing, there the necessi- ty of earning one's bread in order te eat it, is a dishonor, a mark of inferiority; and each particular kind of I ibor is higher or lower on the scale of respectability, not in proportion to the deman i which il makes for a higher or lower ordsr of qualification, but in proportion as it brings men nearer lo the lerel, and secures from them ihe patron. age or the deference, of the unlaboring aristocracy. Even in middle ages the man of science or of letters, the physician, tha (earned clerk, the skilful ariizan, could command from peer and king something of thtt respeot due to inlrileotua! and personal superiority, but still the superiority of knowledge and of aa nothing before the greatness of hereditary wealth and power. As civilization advances, ihe arMtoeratie clam becomes more educated, an4 to itself no re closely with the intellectual class. Thus the dignity of idleness placed with the dignity of intellectual ponw, tilt by degrees men begin to we toe ilioVence. And while idleness tt thus losing its honors, iodusiiy juelf bogioa to be delivered turn its reproach, for koowl- conunaaliv spreading wider aori tower among the laboring and political power w by localities, dishonorable; and f I were com- pelled ti) believe that such an anomaly will be permanent upon the American soil, out- living or subduing the varicus influences with which it is at war, I never should have thought of speculating, but with ahatntt, upon the probable character and funclions of American literature. That anomaly must pass away, or all that Vighteus ttnd adorns this land with the promise of a new era of freedom for mankind, must perish before it, and society itself must be con- structed upon other principles t'mn those which are now recognized aa its foundation upoo principles more preposterous than monarchy, and Tioro bi rbarous than feudalism. The American structure of society must predominate her J, to the ex- clusion of every hostile eleencnt, or its very foundation must be subverted. The .soil of freedom must cultivated by the hands of freemen, or the time will come when fro in each traditionary hill, and from each sacred battle field, the voices of the guar- dian genii, will be heard in lories of grief, Let us depart." Where is he man, cull- ing himself an American, who docs not in his heart believe that this dark anomaly will puss away ami that I he tune will coine wheu no spot in our vutit utnot ahull be pro- faned by a fettered step, or ly the stroke of an unwilling hand, out ry where )o- cund lubor shall look up lo I euvun in iln- conscious nobleness of pcrfec freedom.
