It is destined to absorb the entire family of coloured methodists in the United states unless coloured men shall be received in the conferences of the methodist episcopal Church upon equal terms with Whites. Intelligent and ambitious Young coloured men will not con not themselves with an organization in which the path of ecclesiastical preferment is barred. Bethel Church or Kiugo a Church As it was called for May years or Allen Chapel As it is now called a was first organized in an old Blacksmith shop situated on new Street near North Street Thenee was removed to Sycamore below fifth thence to the lower part of seventh Street where on the brow of the Hill overlooking Deer Creek and in sight of its Mother and rival it remained several years. Afterwards a lot was purchased on sixth Street and the Church removed to it. Tho great increase of members consequent upon the disruption of the Deer Creek Church by the slavery question rendered it necessary to seek a new location and in 1846 the foundation of the present building was Laid.

At first All new Comers in Cincinnati joined themselves to the methodist Church though they had been baptists presbyterians or even quakers in the places from whence they came. But in 1833 the baptists became numerous enough to desire a separate organization. Accordingly under the Oare of the Rev. David Nickens. A Man of great gaiety and Zeal a Church was established called the withstanding the difficulty and always encountered them in the prejudice which Purchase of real i. Union Baptist Church. The first Church edifice was in the East Side of Western Row almost precisely on the spot occupied by the Marietta depot. But the congregation seen grew too Large for the edifice and a new location was sought. About 1839 the property on Baker Street was purchased and the Church removed to it and there they remained for Twenty four years.

Afterwards they purchased the Brick Church on the South Side of the Street where they still remain. The pastor who is a Man of great intellectual activity has stamped his impress upon his Congre Gatimu so deeply that it is not inappropriately called Quot Shelton a the pronounced position of the Church on the slavery question together with the labors of the pastor in the anti slavery Field before the abolition of slavery and his efforts in behalf of the free Dinen since has drawn to them a Large number of that class. In the Zion Baptist Church the democratic Rule of the majority prevails but a portion of the older members objecting to be ruled by the new-coiner9, even though they were a majority a split has take place.

While the majority for the Sake of securing an eligible site Lor the Church were willing to let it go a Little under full value. Suita to prevent a Saie suits to quiet title and suits for Sale and division of proceeds were entered by the contend ing parties. Meantime the dissatisfied parties having appealed to civil instead of ecclesiastical Law were expelled from Church by the majority.

We must pass however to other Points of interest in the history of Cincinnati coloured people. The Brothers Ballo the first to introduce. Amp e a Mug Errean Art in this City and by unremitting Intuit by study and application developed it to the highest perfection known since its discovery by the Frenchman from Horn it derives its name. Step by Stop As the underwent the Mapy changes known in aun printing. These artists Kepi Pace with the Progress of improvement and Are not excelled today by any others in the business r. S. Duncanson by far the Best Painter of italian landscape in this country is if any thing better known in England than in his Home Here in Cincinnati for his paintings have Oflund a larger Market and a far More Liberal patronage among the nobility of London than they have at Home. It was his Good Fortune to visit Europe Early in fat Quot career Asau artist and absorb from these Lecus a sources the pure spirit of Art which for Luna centuries found residence and expression Only of that historic continent. The a Daft languor of the italian landscape answered to poetic nature of the artist who As this works beat evidence was not intoxicated by it but while he Bec it Ute infused with the dreariness and Beauty which no where else is found in such Peculiar Richness As in Italy his american Genius guided his Pencil and the precious Ca Vas glows with All the Fervour and Fidelity which a rational enthusiasts May translate for Dpi nature. His a a recollections of Italy Quot reproduced in different form Joe tie to first trl followed from time to time Tufti e first triumphs of his i amp Nodi in a apes but always with the same p a ill be remembered among that a kill. The. Of that composite character which an artist might paint who did not altogether like what he saw ground him but infused into a top grim reality the spirit of tenderness Aud Universal Beauty. This predisposition to ideality is strongly marked in or. Duncanson although whether t0 his credit or not it is to be said that his scottish landscapes painted from sketches take during his residence in the land of Scott and Burns lost year show a decided change of style and expression. Instead of the dreariness and shimmer characteristic of a sunny land or Pun eau son has Given the Eold raw reality of North country atmosphere to his last european works. And Tiey Are most esteemed by those familiar with scottish scenery for their Fidelity to nature in to at respect. Or. Dunean Sou found in that Noble woman Ajja a Reat artiste. Mist Charlotte Cushman admiration or his work and Friendship in his struggles. She was the chief Means of his introduction to the notice and appreciation of the Art Loving portion of the English nobility and did Lor him ail that a Fli Carty sympathy with Art and the Nobel impulses of a generous nature could dictate. No Netter tribute could be paid miss Cushman heart than the acknowledgements of a fellow artist struggling against prejudice in a Branch of Art devoted to the interpretation of external nature while she. In another Branch was reaping Honor profit and re a a �?o1-------1------ human. T a Una ked degree in any individual inst one among the coloured pm Ople of Cincinnati but their love for a it Hart is not excelled and their Ordi mtg Church singing exceeds in Richness of tone and Smuts died Power that of Auy other people. Men of Means. The Aqui Litif Enesi of the negro race a Wen a now but its results in the coloured people of Cin a nes few Bat will u. Our Prus i w own far not calling and occupation. There is but one doctor of Medicine that we know of. Doctor Buckner Eclectic whose office is on seventh Street Between main and Sycamore. Oliver Nelson and Peter Fawcett Are famous As caterers and have furnished some of the Mosteler Gant suppers Given in the pity for Many years. Harris k bro., on fifth Street Between Sycamore and Broadway Are engaged in the same business. The Lincoln House formerly Dumas House on Mcallister Street is an orderly Well kept hotel for coloured people and has enjoyed some reputation for Good dinners among White gourmand who prefer the cuisine do Frique coloured people Are famous for Good Teeth but they support a dentist in this City. Or. Turner who is a regular graduate of the profession of dentistry. His office is on seventh Street Between Broadway and Sycamore. Miss Ann e. Tinsley and miss Sheppard quite Good looking Young coloured women teach the piano and perform very fairly on the instrument in Public. Among the traders Are Woodson the Carpenter on fifth Street near Plum Thompson tailor sixth Between Walnut and Vine strange Shoemaker Elm above fifth Mann ditto Broadway above new Street Ellis Smith Street Between sixth and George Troy on John near Wade and others not a too numerous to mention Quot but not prominent enough to Ortrude a a Shingle Quot in the Publio Eye. I there Are also several House painters Wall a Perers and White washers whom everybody nows or can find when such service is required there Are Twenty coloured Jackmen who own their vehicles and hones and three or four Boss drayman who own their drays and hones. Sinful business. The savings and earnings of Many coloured people Are wasted away in purchasing lottery tickets. Add taking Quot chances Quot in various schemes of a similar character for swindling. The hold that the Cune of avarice Baa upon the More Igno rant Aud uninformed of our coloured citizens is wonderful especially As manifested in the Hope for gain in the poro Hase of lottery tickets. Leok. Corbin keeps a lottery Agency on Broadway. Near sixth and is reputed to have made $10,000 at the business. The Low dance houses located in the filthy huddle of wooden houses on the Goodhue property at the foot of Plum Street and those in the not less Abom in amp Blo Region of Culvert Street Are very sinks of iniquity where Black and White of the lowest types and most debased appetites fester and Gen Der like maggots. On Broadway above fifth Street West Side is i coloured a gambling hell Quot and another on Broadway East Side Between sixth and seventh streets. There Are coloured drinking saloons All through the delectable Region of a Bucktown a and they Are the Poison sources of the entire coloured population. Church members and All those who Are or esteem themselves decent shun them and their inmates As they would a pestilence but like it they intrude themselves and spread abroad their baneful influences and make them Felt where least expected. It is a remarkable foot that no Public place of amusement for coloured people exclusively has Ever been projected in the City and that no coloured capitalists have had spirit enough to build a commodious Hall for balls concerts meetings to. There is no doubt but such a investment would pay. Society. Politeness is a Cardinal virtue of the coloured people and they practice it with an ease and Grace which show it to be natural greetings amour them Are of the most suave character. Quot Gooc morning mister Johnson How do you do Dis morn in Sah i i Hope you Are very Well a Quot Good Mornin to you mister Jones. I am very Well i thank you. How do you do to Day ? you Are looking Berry and then follows inquiries about family and affairs during which none of the heat and haste Peculiar to the practical and driving caucasian Are seen in voice or manner. They Are naturally very sociable and gregarious As most people who afe tips self reliant and very susceptible to superstition. Stories of ghosts goblins and a buggers a obtain wonderful influence Over the juvenile mind encased in a dark epidermis and Eyen the old who have not had advantages Quot shudder at the tale of horrid apparition a and keep in door dark and games of Chance with cards and Dice requiring Little skill Are common social amusements of the coloured people but there Are exceptions where the refinements and accomplishments of Good society be found. Beauty is a thing sought after by the whole human race but by no people More than those we contemplate. What its Standard is among themselves it would be difficult to say but a tall Lithe Well formed Olive complexioned Young woman with Rich Black Wavy hair Large Brilliant eyes Fine features lit up with smiles which display the Pearly whiteness of a Superb set of Teeth can always bring All the beaux to her feet. That there Are just such creatures in Cincinnati any one knows whose eyes peek for Beauty among the Dusky daughters of the sunny South whom the cruelties and degradation of slavery drove into the More free if not less con Gen ill society of the North. And if one were to lend a too tredent Par to the gossip of coloured society he might be induced to believe that the a Best blood of the South flows in veins that pursed through the bodies of slaves and that Rich Southern planters sent their a a mulatto and a squad Roony and a oct Aroon daughters and mistresses up North for education safety or convenience Cincinnati Bein chosen in Many instances As desirable in those respects. Intellectual pursuits or entertainments Are not common with Dolored Peoble but improvements in these respects Are observable by teachers and sympathizers who have taken More or less interest in coloured people draw social lines As distinctly As their White fellow beings and contrary to a generally received idea prefer to remain distinct As far As they we concerned. They Heve their 1 Arias As other Peoples have with perhaps several shades of Charity for the erring. No close observer must admit that thei r coloured citizens but desire is for what is i.-/1. Of excellent and Good report in life. Social and Equality before the Law Are goop things they Hope to attain and certainly no people Hoye displayed More patience and amiability under scorn reproach prejudice and persecution. Than they and therefore Are they the More entitled to encouragement and count Nance in their laudable efforts in the direction of Morg and social improve put. The insane. With regard to the insane of our negro population Little remains to by Laid after what is Cost lined in the following extract Roca the seventh annual re Eort of the Longview Asylum Tor 1866. Or. O. M. Langdon superintendent of the in amp tits by unremitting Effort an Asylum for this class of sufferers. He says Quot it is a source Ofin at gratification to me that this provision has been made As it is what i have take occasion to urge at various times As proper and necessary. It Inay be that i have appeared to Many to place too great a stress on the necessity of such provision. These eases. Ico Wever came frequently under my observation Anu i could not help feeling that Justice and humanity called for some better treatment of this class of unfortunates than incarceration in the common jail. Two of the greatest misfortunes that humanity is liable to insanity and a coloured skin did not seem to me Sood Aud sufficient reasons for classing the person so afflicted with malefactors and it is therefore a matter of sincere rejoicing that a change in the disposition of these persons has been made and especially that Hamilton county has taken the Lead in the matter and that now in our Asylum All insane persons of whatever kind class color or degree Are freely received. Quot immediately after the passage of the Law providing for the coloured insane application was made for their reception into the building with the Whites. This we could not do owing to the Strong prejudice which exists in the minds of most Whites and in none More strongly Thau the inmates of Tho Asylum. In order to receive them at All i should have been obliged to break up my classification by which 1 have practically increased the capacity of the Boitse and it would have resulted in depriving More Whites of the benefits of the institution than it would have accommodated coloured. It was therefore deemed necessary in order to entry out the intention of the Law to Purchase another building and one within a reasonable distance formerly occupied As a water cure establishment was accordingly by permission of the Board purchased by me and fitted up for the reception of the coloured insane. The Archase fitting up and furnishing so As to be ready a or the reception of patients was completed last August and since that time All of this class belonging to the country have been freely received and kindly and carefully newspapers. The american mania for starting newspapers has afflicted the coloured people As Well As their White Brethren. The first paper in the state was the a palladium of Liberty a published at Columbus by David Jenkins who is As Well known to politicians at Columbus As the governor himself. The publication was made in 1838. A few years afterwards 1843, sprung to the Quot disfranchised published at Cincinnati. This paper struggled for some time before it went under. Its editors were men of ability and made an interesting Saper. Part of the time it was edited by Alphonso. Sumner who was the school teacher of his Day. He was assisted and succeeded by William l. Yancy a relative of the rebel Yancy. Next came Rev. Thomas Woodson an impassioned writer whose articles were immensely popular with the patrons of of his paper. Finally Gideon q. Langston a brother of John m. Langston the orator and lawyer. Gideon was a smooth an elegant writer a Clear thinks Ratt daid the foundation of the family reputation upon which his younger brother has built. When John q. Adams visited our City in 1842 to Lay the Corner Stone of the Observatory air. Langstone a address was by Many believed to to the Best of Thoie with which or. Adams was greeted by various deputations. The paper failed while or. Langston was its editor. During a part of its existence it was published by Caleb Clark. Esq., the Well known publisher. No further attempt was made at news diapers until 1855, when the Herald of Freedom was issued by Peter h. Clark. It was discontinued after three months. The publisher was or. M. Bently of Ludlow Kentucky where the paper was set up by or. Bently a family. The press work was done on the columbian press in the gilding now occupied by the times. Though the continuance was Short the paper served a Good purpose by its thorough discussion of the question How shall houses for the coloured schools be built a the last Effort in the newspaper line a the coloured citizen which has been revived after a suspension of several months. It was published continuously for Over three years. The editorials were of a High order and were written by or. J. C. Corbin a graduate of Miami University and a gentleman of Fine talents.

It is decorated with a Bee hive the device of the United coloured americans of which association he was an Active and prominent member. This society makes an allowance to sick members besides a burial fee in Case of death. Modelled like the society of their Brothers is the coloured american female society though not so old As the other society they Are yet in flourishing circumstances.

It has not yet been opened a year. Trades and professions. Almost every Trade a May be found among the Dolored people and yet but few work at their trades. The reason is that they Are generally re fused admission to the shops with White men and but few coloured men have capital and custom enough to give their Fellows employment.

She would go Bank to Al Lington As soon As might be and have done with this London life which Only made her wretched. This seeing of Crosbie had Only been terrible to her. She did not Tell herself that his image had been shattered. Her idea was that All her misery had conae from the untoward Ness of the meeting. But there was the fact that she had seen the Man and heard his voice and that the seeing him and hearing him had made her miserable. She certainly desired that it might never be her lot either to see him or to hear him again. And As for John Eamesa in those bitter moments of her reflection a she almost wished the same in regard to him. If he would Only cease to be her Lover he might be very Well but he was not very Well to her As Long As his pretensions were dinner into her ear by every body who knew her. And then she told herself that John would have had a better Chance if he bad been Content to plead for himself. In this i think she was hard upon her Lover. He had pleaded for himself As Well As he knew How and As often As the occasion had been Given to him. It had hardly been his fault that his Case had been taken in hand by other advocates. He had Given no commission to mrs. Thorne to plead for him. Poor Johnny. He had stood in much bettor favor before the lady had presented her compliments to miss l d. It was that odious letter and the thoughts which it had forced upon Lily a mind which were now most inimical to his interests.

He had found it impossible to say All that he bad to say in the painting room during the very Short intervals which mrs. Broughton left to him. A Man should be allowed to be alone More than fifteen minutes with a Young lady on the oct Flaklon in which he offers to her his hand and his hmm but hitherto he had never had More than gift Jeff minutes at his command and then there had Tomti the turban he had also in the meantime oaf a on mrs. Broughton with the intention of a it fining to her that if she really intended to favor a it views in respect to miss Van Siever she our him a Little More Liberty for expressing on this occasion he had seen his Friend not Beon Able to go As minutely As he hat into the matter that was so important to mrs. Broughton had found it necessary do meeting to talk almost exclusively about a a self add her own affairs. A Conway a she had Saj directly she saw him Quot i am so glad you have a Orne. I think i should have gone mad if i had not seen some one who cares for this was Early in the morning not much after eleven a hdm mrs. Broughton hearing first his Knock at the door and then his voice had met him in the Hall and taken him into the dining room. A is any thing the matter a he asked. A ooh Conway 1�?� a what is it has any thing with Dobbs a a every thing has gone wrong with him. He is a heaven and Earth what do you mean a a simply what i say. But you must not speak a word of it. I do not know it from himself. Quot How do Jroud know it a Quot wait a moment. Sit Down there will you and i will sit by you. _ no Conway do not take my hand. It is not right. There so. Yesterday mrs. Van Siever was Here. I need not Tell you All that she said to me even if i could. She was harsh and cruel saying a full manner of thing Dobbs. How can i help it if he drinks not encouraged him. And As for expensive i i have been As ignorant As a child. I have asked for any thing. When we were somebody told me How much we should h spend. It was either two thousand or three Sand or four thousand or something like that you know Conway How. Ignorant Lam about Money that Lam like a child. Is it not True a she waited for an answer and Dalrynple was obliged to acknowledge that it was True. And yet he had known the times in which his dear i rigid had been very Sharp in her memory with reference to a few pounds. A and now she says that Dobbs owes her Joney which ire can not pay her. And that every thing must be sold. She says that mus Elboro must have the business and that Dobbs must shift for himself a do you believe that she has the Power to decide that things shall go this Way or that As she pleases a Quot How am i to know ? she says so and she says it �3 because he drinks. He does drink. That at least is True but How Ean i help it a of Conway what am i to do Dobbs did not come Home at nil last night but sent for his things saying that he must stay in the City. What am i to do if they come and take the House and sell the furniture and turn me out into the Stowt then the Peor creature began to cry in Earnest and Dalrymple had to console her As Best it. Might. Quot How i wish i had known you first a Siso said. To this Dalrymple was Able to make no direct answer. He was Wise enough to know that a direct answer might possibly Lead him into terrible trouble. He was by no Means anxious to find himself Quot protecting mrs Dobbs Broughton from the ruin which her husband had brought upon her. Before he left her sic had fold him a Long Story partly of matters of which be had known something before and partly made up of that which she had heard from the old woman. It was settled. Mrs. Broughton said that or. Mus Elboro was to marry Clara Van Siever. But it appeared As far As Dalrymple could learn that this was a settlement made simply Between mrs. Van Siever and Mua Elboro. Clara As he thought was not a girl Likely to fall into such a settlement without having an opinion of her own. Mus Elboro was to have the business and Dobbs Broughton was to be a sold up a and then look for employment in the City. From her husband the wife had not heard a word on this matter and the above Story was simply what had been told to mrs. Broughton by mrs. Van Siever. A for myself it seems that there can be by one Fate a said mrs. Broughton. Dalrymple in his tenderest voice asked what that one Fate must be. Quot never mind a said mrs. Broughton. Quot there Are some things which one Ca even to such a Friend As he we near her. And had All but got his Arm arc Waist. To was however Able to be Quot Maria a he said getting up on his be should really come about that you Sho any thing you will Send to me. You Wil me that at any rate a Bhe rubbed in a of not Tell Ittig d her Rudent. A if it 1 want Jonise t from �2t, Eye an Ltd a that she did not knot. There Are moments in which a Man must u 8u Conway Dalrymple Quot in which it would be unmanly not to do so however prosaic it May seem. I need hardly Teh you that my purse shall be yours if you want if moment she did not want his purse nor must it be supposed she wanted to run pm and,.tojea\e, he husband to fight the Battle alone with mrs. \ an Siever. The truth was that she did not know what she wanted Over and beyond an Assurance from Conway dal Romni that she was the most ill used the most interesting. Aud the most Beautiful woman Ever heard of either in history or Romance Flad he proposed to her to pack up a bundle and go off with him in a cab to the London Chatham and Dover railway station in route for Boulogne. I do not for a moment think that she would have packed up her bundle. She would have received intense gratification from the offers so much to Quot hdm she Woulff have been almost consoled for her husbands ruin but she would have scolded her Lover and would have explained to him the great iniquity of which he was guilty. It was Clear to him that at this present time he could not make any special terms with her As to Clara Van Siever. At such a moment As this he would hardly ask her to keep out of the any in order that he might have his Opportunity. But when he suggested that probably it might be better in the present emergency to give up the idea of any further sitting in her room and proposed to Send for Bis canvass color Box and easel she told him that As far As she was concerned. He was Welcome to that one other sitting for which they had All bargained. Quot you had better come to Morrow As we had she said a and unless i shall have been turned out into the Street by the creditors you May have the room As you did before. Aud you must remember Conway that though mrs Van says that mus Elboro is to have Clara it does no to follow that Clara should give when we consider every thing we must acknowledge that this was at any rate Good natured. Then there was a tender parting with Many tears and Conway Dalrymple escaped from the House. A he did not for a moment doubt the truth of the Story which mrs Broughton had told As far at least As it referred to the ruin of Dobbs Broughton. He had heard something of this before and for some weeks had expected that a crash was coming. Broughton a Rise had been very sudden and Dalrymple had never regarded his Friend As firmly placed in the commercial world. Dobbs was one of those men who seem bom to Surprise the world by a spurt of Prosperity and might perhaps Havo had a second spurt or even a third could he have kept himself from drinking in the morning. But Dalrymple though be was hardly astonished by the Story As it regarded Broughton was put out by that a it Art of it which had reference to mus Elboro. He doing then. Dressed up in a that Way like a Guy then. Clara got up from her Fet and stood her juolhe1, it Jael a dress and Jael a turban. Dalrymple thought that the dress and turban did not become her badly. Mrs. Van Siever otherwise. Quot will you have the goodness to Tell me. Miss Why you Are dressed up after that mad Bess a the Riser Wio doubt Bear in mind that Clara had other words of which to think besides those which were addressed to her by . Dal Rymple had ask her to be his wife in the plainest and she thought that the very very taking off of ibis apron. Words though to by in Seif almost As he said the action had been so to it something to her of direct simple determination which a leased her. When he had spoken of having had a Nail d riven by her right through his heart he he not b it a in in the least a rallied t but the taking off of the apron and the putting Down of the palette. And the do Quot Png Htay Clara Vau sentimental miss Van you my known that mus Elboro had been introduced to Broughton by mrs. Van Siever but nevertheless he had regarded the Man As being no More than Broughton a clerk. And now he was told that mus Elboro was to marry Clara Van Siever and have All mrs. Van Sieverts Money. He resolved at inst that he would run his risk about the Money and take Clara either with or without it if she would have him. And As for that difficulty in asking her if mrs. Brougton would give him no Opportunity of putting the question behind her Back he would put it before her face. He had not much Leisure for consideration on these Points As the next Day was the Day for the last sitting. On the following morning he found miss Van Siever already seated in mrs. Broughton a room when he reached it. And at the Homent mrs. Broughton was not there. As he took Claras hand he could not prevent himself from asking her whether she had heard and to Hing a heard what a said Clara. Quot then you hav not a said he. Quot never mind now As mrs. Broughton is then mrs. Broughton had entered the room. She seemed to be quite cheerful but Dalrymple perfectly understood from a special glance which she gave to him that he was .0 Pero Ieve that her cheerfulness was assumed for Claras Benefit. Mrs. Brougton was showing How great a heroine she could be on behalf of her friends. A now my dear a she said Quot do remember that this is the last Day. It May be All very Well Conway and of course you know Best but As far As i can see you have not made half As much Progress As you ought to have Quot we shall do excellently Well a said Dalrymple. Quot so much the better a said mrs. Broughton Quot and now. Clara ill place and so Clara was placed on her Knes with the turban on her head. Dalrymple began his work assiduously kno to tax that mrs. Broughton would not leave the room Tor some minutes. It was certain that she would remain for a Quarter of an hour and it might be As Well that he should really use that Tijare on his picture. The Peculiar position in which he was placed probably made his work difficult to him. There was something perplexing in the necessity which bound him to look upon the Young lady before him both As Jael and As the future mrs. Conway Dalrymple knowing As he did that she was at present simply Clara Van Siever. A double personification was not difficult to him. He had encountered it with every Model that had sat to him and with every Young lady he had attempted to win if he had Ever made such an attempt with one before. But Tho triple character joined to the necessity of the double work was distressing to him. Quot the hand a Little further Back if you done to mind he said a and the wrist More toward me. That is just it. Lean a Little More Over him. There that will do if mrs. Broughton go very quickly he must begin to address his Model on a totally different subject even while she was in the act of slaying Sisera a have you made up your mind to is to be Sisera a asked mrs. Broughton. A i think i shall put Lyle Noti Rym i put in my own face a said Dalle a if miss Van Siever does not in the least a said Clara speaking without moving her face almost without moving her lips. Quot that will be said mrs. Broughton she was still quite cheerful and really laughed As she spoke. A shall you like the idea Clara of striking the Nail right through his head a a ooh. Yes As Well his head As another a. I shall seem to be having my revenge for All the trouble he has Given there was a slight pause and then Dalrymple spoke. A you have had that already in striking me right through the Quot what a very pretty speech was it not my dear a said mrs. Broughton. And then mrs. Broughton laughed. There was something slightly historical in her laugh which grated on Dalrymple Sears something which seemed to Tell him that at the present moment his dear Friend was not going to assist him honestly in his Effort. A Only that i should put him out i would get up and make a curtsey a said Clara. No Young lady would Ever talk of making a curtsey for such a i ave been made in out understood speech if she supposed it to earnestness. And Clara no that a Man might make a Hundred such spot ones in the presence of a third person without any danger that they would be taken As meaning any thing. All this Dalrymple knew and by Ganto think that he had better put Down his palette and Brush and do the work which Hoad before Nim in the most prosaic language the Nio could use. To could at any rate succeed in making Clara acknowledge his intention in this Way. He waited still for a minute or two and it seemed to him that mrs. Broughton had no intention iof piling her faggots on the present occasion. It might be that the remembrance of her husbands ruin prevented her from sacrificing Hersell in the other direction also. A i am not very Good at pretty Speed bad a hot i am Good at tolling the truth Quot said Dalrymple. V Quot a a has laughed mrs. Broughton still with a touch of hysterical action in her Throat. A upon my word Conway you know How to Praise a Quot he Dis praises himself most i it necessarily in denying Tutje prettiness of his said Clara. As she spoke she hardly moved her lips and Dalrymple went on painting from Tho Model. It was Clear that miss Van Siever understood that the painting and not the pretty speeches was the important business on hand. Mrs. Broughton had now tucked her feet up on the sofa Aud was gazing at the artist As he stood at his work. Dalrymple remembering Tow to had Olferd her his purse an offer which in the existing crisis of her affairs might mean a great deals Felt that Sho was ill natured. Had she intended to do him a Good turn she would have gone now but there she Lay with her feet tucked up clearly Purposing to be present through the whole of that mornings sitting. His anger against her added something to his spirit and made him determine that to would carry out his purpose. Suddenly therefore he prepared himself for action. _ Ltd he was in the habit of working with a turkish Cap on his head and with a Short apron tied round him. There was something picturesque about the Cap which might not have been incongruous with love making. It is easy to suppose that Juan work a turkish Cap Lambrous Island. When he sat wit but we maj Haidee quiz. It. Sure that he did not Wear an apron. Now Dalry pie had thought of All this and had made up his mind to work to Day without his apron but it arranging his easel and his brushes he had i on from Force of habit and was now disgusted himself As he remembered it. He put Down Brush and divested his thumb of his palette then took off his Cap and after that untied the apron. A a Conway what Are you going to do a said mrs. Broughton. A i am going to ask Clara Van Siever to be Ray wife a said Dalrymple. At that moment the door was opened and mrs. Van Siever entered the room. Clam had not risen from her kneeling posture when Dalrymple began to put off his trappings. One had not seen what he was doing As plainly As mrs. Broughton had done having her attention naturally Rawi toward her Sisera and besides this she understood that she was to remain As she was placed till orders to move were Given to her. Dalrymple would occasionally step aside from his easel to look at her in some altered Light and on such occasions she would simply hold her Hammer somewhat More tightly than before. When therefore mrs. Van Siever entered the room Clara was still slaying Sisera in spite of the artists speech. The speech indeed and both seemed to come to her at the same time. The old woman stood for a moment holding the open door in her band. Quot you tool a she said Quot what Are you in which he Hai i called her Sievert attempting \ to be neither with Clara nor \ polite with Sievert did please h. Or. Sho had often said to herself that she would never give a Plain answer to a Man who did not it ask her a plam question a to a Man who in Asi tag Titis question did not say plainly to her. A Clai Van a it Iever will you become mrs. Jones a a Orf mrs. Str Ith it r ,l0u1 Kins a the Case might by s now Conway Dalrymple had asked her to beco me mrs. A Dalrymple very much after this fashion. A in spite of Ahe apparition of All this b cd passed through her mind. Not the less however was so e a by it eed la answer , before she could give any reply to the other questioner in them eat Viu mrs. Dobbs Broughton had a tucked Hei 0 1 Quot Mamma a said Clara a who Over exp cud to see you Here a a i do re say nobody did a sail mrs. Van is Ever but Here i am a Madam a said mrs. Dobbs Broughton a might at any rate have gone thro ugh the Cert eur of having yourself announced by the Madam a a said the old woman attempting to mimic the her i thought that on such a very part Culas occasion As this i might be allowed to announce myself. You to fool you Why donor you take that turban off a then Clara with slow and Graceful motion unwound the turban if Dalrymple really meant what he had said and would stick to it she need not mind being called a to fool by . Quot Conway i am afraid that our last sitting is disturbed a said mrs. Broughton with her Little laugh. A icon Way a last sitting certainly is disturbed Quot Quot said mrs. Van Siever and then she mimicked Tho laugh a and you la All be disturbed i can Tell you that. What a ass you must be to go on with this kind of thing after what i said to you yesterday 1 do you know that he got beastly drunk in the City last night and that he is drunk now while you Are going on with your tomfoolery is a a upon hearing this mrs. Dobbs Broughton fainted into Dalrymple a arms. Hitherto the artist had not said a word and had hardly known what part it would Best become him now to play. If he intended to marry Clara Aud he certainly did intend to marry her if she would have him it might be As Well not to quarrel with mrs. Van Siever at any rate there was he third in tylors. Van Sieverts intrusion disagreeable act was which need make him take up his sword to do Battle with her. But now As he held mrs Broughton in his arms and As the horrid words which the old woman had spoken rung in his ears he could not refrain himself from uttering reproach. A you ought not to have told her in this Way before other people even if it be True a said Conway. A leave me to be my own judge of what i ought to do if you please sir. If she had any feeling at All what i told her yesterday would have kept her from All this. But some people have no few Ling. And will go on being to fools though the House is on As these words were spoken mrs. Broughton fainted More persistently than every so that Dalrymple was convinced that whether she Felt or not at any rate she heard. He had now dragged her across the room and Laid her upon the sofa and Clara had come to her assistance. Quot i dare say you think me very hard because i speak plainly but there Are things much harder Thau Plain speaking. How much do you expect to be paid sir for this picture of my girl a a a into not expect to be paid for it All a said Dalrymple. A and who is it to belong to a a it belongs to me at a then sir it Musnit belong to you any longer it won t do for you to have a picture of my girl hang up in your painting room for All your friends to come and make their jokes a bout a nor yet to make a show of it in any of your exhibitions. My daughter has been a fool and i can to help it. If a our la Tell me what a the Cost ill pay you then �?T11 have Tho picture Home and ill treat it a it Dalrymple thought for a moment about his picture and about mrs. Van Siever. What had he better do he wanted to behave Well and he thought that the old woman had Justice on her Side. A Madam a he not sell this picture Lut it shall be you wish it. Sorbet Niue of said a i will destroyed it a i certainly do wish it but i wont Trust to Vou. If its not sent to my House at once you la hear frown me through my in Dalrymple deliberately opened his Penknife and so a the Canvas across through the Middle of the picture each Way. Clara As she saw him do it Felt in truth that she moved him. A there mrs. Van he said a now you Cau take the bits Home with you in your Basket it you wish it. A at this moment As the rent Canvas Leli and fluttered upon the Stretcher there came a loud voice of lamentation from the sofa a groan of despair and a shriek of Wrath. Quot a Vert Fine. Indeed a said mrs. Van Siever. A when ladies faint they always ought to have their eyes about them. I see that mrs. Broughton understands a take her away Conway for gods Sake take her away a said or.

A Quot seven Hundred and fifty pounds i certainly shall not give you seven Hundred and fifty pounds Quot i certainly think you could invest your Money better mrs. Van Siever. But if the thing to be sold at All that is my Price. In be thought that there was some Justice in your demand that it should be destroyed and therefore i have destroyed a a. Mis.
