But let us draw aside. I have an important letter to deliver to you, with instructions,” wAs the pleasant sjioken reply. “You smoke, I presume?” “Yes; thanks,” said h’orbes, helping himself to a choice cigar from the proflered case. “Shall we enter a cafe; we can talk and smoke over our coflTec ?” The pair entered a French restaurant, when Forbes, avIio was quick at reading character, saw from his companion’s face, a handsome one of the true Greek type, that his mission was one that deeply moved him Both sat on in silence over their coffee, neither cari tig to speak, as they looked at the Oriental scene before them. It was the occasion of a fair called Abu-l-Abbas, which derived the name from the tomb of a great saint. Forbes and liis companion were seated on a terrace overhanging the sea, which, as usual, was restless, and rolled in with an incessant murmur, splashing against the feet of the houses that lined the shore. The moon was just at this time hanging over the hill of Kom-cl-Dyk on the opiwsitc side of the new harbor. so that it revealed the rushing waters, and allowetl the gaze to extend far out across the sea on the one hand and to trace the black outlines of the houses and forts and batteries on the other. Above was a placid sky, crested with stars that vied in brilliance with the moon herself, which shone over a landscape that even a Claude would not have disdained to paint. “Here is the letter,” said the secretary, handing him a square missive with the Egyptian official seal 8tani|)cd on black wax. Almost mechanically Forbes was about to break the seal, when his companion arrested him % saying: “No. not now; the letter must be opened at the time and place named in these iiistruclions,” banding him another letter without t^scal. The cajitaiii ran his eye down the missive, and at oiicc saiy that some mystery was attached to it. “Humph! I am to sail to-morrow morning,” he said; “is anthiiig in the wind ?—of course, I don’t want you to betray coiiAdciicc; but the affair is altogether unexpected.” “Exactly—just so,” said the secretary, drawing closer to him; “you will have two passengers; a Mr. Va-lescuc and his wife—a charming woman.” “I am fortunate; but there, I suppose I must keep my curiosity in check until the proper inomcnt arrives,” said Forbes, who was loo much the disciplinarian himself, when duty was concerned, to attempt to drew tlic other out. “Valescoc lias incurred the displeasure ol the govcriimciit. I am putting myself in your power by saying so much. May I rely upon your for-hearaiicc. Captain Forbes?”’ “Yes. I am very susceptible where women are couccrncd. May I tell vou why ?” “If you please. Captain.” “Many years ago, when first I entered the Ejoptian service, I hada wife aud child—a lovely girl who was the very suii of my existence.” llereuiMiii the speaker’s voice became husky, and he turned his head aside to furtively wipe away a tear. “They are still’ living, I trust,” said the Secretary in a sympathetic voice. “Alas, I can not tell. Iu crossing the desert we were attacked by Bedouins. I defended my wife anil cliild to the death, but I was stnick down. Wlicn I recovered consciousness I w'tts alone. Fi*om that day to this 1 liave never lieard tidings of mv lost ones; duty has supplied their place hitherto, but in the silent watches of the night I often lie awake and wonder if they and I will meet again tliis side of the grevc.” “Pray Heaven yoai may, my dear Captaiii. WIjcn the pi-oper time arrives, 1 think I may rely upon your humanity; and excuse ray saying more.” Wringing the Cantaiifs hand, the Secretary left hurrieuly, evidently too overcome to say more. “What a strange affair!” thouglit Fori.His. “Evidently the scaled letter is connected with Valcscoe. I may be able to rcndcv him a service; but honor and duty forbid that I should favor him, a stranger, against my iu-sl ructions.” He sat on, listening to the rude music of the waters, which, to him, had a sweetness all their own. for since his childhood he had never oceii absent long ñ’oin their subtile influence.Arabs and Egyptians cainc and went, but Forbes paid no attention to them; lie was tliinking of iiis lost wife and cliild, and wondering why Heaven bad treated liim so cruelly in wresting them from him. and leaving liim to mourn their loss in utter desolation of heart. He was aroused from his reverie by one of the waiters saying liarslily; “Now, then, out you go. We don’t want beggars here.” “I can pay you, your highness,” said an aired Egyptian, humbly. “Do let me rest; I am very tired. Tell me, do you know Pasha Forbes;! want to find him; he’s my friend.” “Wliat, Abdullah!” exclaimed Forbes, starting up aud seizing the beard of the speaker. “Why, you must liavc risen from tlie dead.” The waiter waited to licar no more, now that a great pasha liad recognized the poor Egyptian as his friend. Like others of his class he was impressed by externals, and measured a mail by surrountiiiig circumstances. “My dear master,” cried the poor fellow, sliding down to liis knees and and embracing Forbes’ feet. “Oh! the joy of this meeting. Allah has allowed me to live to sec your dear face once more.” liaising him up, Forties placed liim in a chair, and ringing fur tlie waiter, ordered him to bring a plentiful repast, saying to Abilullali— “Eat and drink first, tlieii tell me what my heart yearns to know.” “How can I teli my lord of the past?” said the poor fellow, whose looks and general apiicarance were enough to touch the stoniest of licarts. “My wife—ivliat of her?” asked Forbes liuskily. Abdullah turned his face aivav to hide the tears that rolled down his furrowed cheeks. “Enough. I am answered; but the cliild ?” “She escaped, my lord.” “Thank heaven! We may yet meet,” said Forbes fervently. “Abdullah, wc imist not jiart again; to make yon happy and comfortable will be the sole aim of my life.” They sat and chatted on, and when closing time came Forbes took his faithful servant with him to his ship —an Egyptian ironclad—named the “Khedive.” Next morning Valcscoe and his wife came aboard, under the escort of a file of marincs,¡commandcd by a sergeant. “Will yon give me your parole not lo atteniiit toescaiie, Mr. Valcscoe?” said Captain Forbes. “Yes, sir,” was the «piict reply. “Good; you are free from tliis moment to.go anywhere over the ship; but it would look l>etter if you keep ro the cabin until wc clear tlic harbor. My state cabin is at your dis|)osal.” Mrs. A’aloscoc put out lier delicate white iiaiid saying, iu a soft, música) voice, “Please accept my best thanks for your kindness to my husband. Poor Charles has been badly treated; you are the first jiorson that has said a kind word to him for moiitlis.” Valcscoe and his Avife disappcaretl down tlic companion ladder, leaving Forbes deep in thouglit as to what his prisoner’s crime could be, and wliy be liad been sent on board the “Khedive,” iu conjunction Avitli that mysterious sealed letter and equally perplexing instructions. llowevor, he had too much on his bands iust at the moment to bestow more tliaii a passing thought on the subject. The Imge ironclad left its moorings iu the cliargc of a native pilot, and steamed seaward past a sliorc dotted Avitli forts to the west, and lined at tlie eastern end by an almost uninterrupted succession of wliite public buildings, including the pasha’s palace, masked by a forest of masts, both of inercliant vessels and uicn-of-Avar, abreast of it being the docks and arsenal. All Eastern suii glinted on mosques and minarets, and made golden the spiky leaves of tiic date palm, wliilc scores of native boats skimmed oyer llic sun kissed Avaters lik« swallows ill search of prey. Captain Forbes stooil ou the deck of bis good sliip, driiikiug in tlie scene Avltli a keen relisli, altliough it Ava^ as familiar to him as Avas his OAVii identity; Avliile there came over iiim one of those strange presentiments that come and go like tlio idle wind, that lie Avas looking on the shores of the Pliaruolis for tlie last time. Once out at sea, he liad time to make the acquaintance of the Vales-co<!S, to Avlioin lio ficciiieit strangely draAvn; so much so, in fact, that lie M as never so liappy as avlien enjoying their society. Mrs. Valcscoe was a charming lady, gentle and winning, but Avith tlic fire of genius and courage in her black eves that swam in luinid light. ‘ One day Abdullali. avIio Imd been utterly p'rostrated by sea sickness, crept on deck to get a breath of sea air, and to look ujion tlic liright sun, so dear to his heart as a denizen of a torrid clime. “Well, old friend,” said Forbes, smiling nt tlio old man, “I see yon have found your way on deck at last. You must look sharp aud get your sea legs iioAV.” “The sight of my lord looking well and happy is better to me than food, drink, liglit or air,” said the grateful Egyptian, his wan face irradiated with pleasure. Mrs. Valescoe was seated near her husband, trying to rouse him frem the despair tlial had seized ujxiu him, Avhen, starting up, she advanced Avith outsfretclied hands, saying in Arabic: “Dear Abdullnii, have you dropped from the clouds?” Oh! the joy that folloAA’od. Captain Forbes found in tlie Avifc of his prisoner his loiig-lost chKd. But the bitter grief that folloAved nearly drove him mud. His instructions told him to oiien the letter Avhcn a certain latitude and longitude had been rcuehod. Tlie very day on Avhich he found his long lost daughter he opened the scaled letter. “Great Heavens! what do I sec? Valcscoe is to he executed ht this s|h)í, and I, unhappy man ! am lo order his execution.” His mind Avas quickly made up. That night, when darkness came like a funeral pall over the blue sea and shutout the light, Forbes, Mr. and Mrs. Valescoc, and Abdullali loAvered themselves into a boat and made good their escape.

When lie becomes engaged tlie ring passes to tlie second finger. After marriage it passes to the third finger. If, how-CA’cr, the gentleman desires ids lady friends to clcarlv understand that he is not “in the market” and! does not Avisli to marry at all, he wears the signet upon his iittlc linger. This* will inform all ladies that he is beyond reach. With the ladies a plain or cliased gold ring on the little finger of tiic left liainl indicates “not engaged” or ready for an offer. Wlicii engaged the ring passes to the tiiird finger of tiie right hand. When marrieil the third finger ou the left hand rccciA’cs the ring. Wlien a youiig lady desires to defy all suitors she places rings—one on the first and one on the fourth finger. A writer on the subject of rings says: “Though tlie ring of gold has long been looked uiK)ii as a necessity in tlie marriage ceremony, it is by no means indispensable, and civil marriages may be contracted Avithout it. The Puritans abolislied the ring, cr, rather, tried to do so; they looked ii|)oii its use as su|)crstitious and of lieatlien origin.

Her Life Brim-Full of liomaiiec aiiil Deviltry. [New York M.iil and Exprcn».) “Ellen Larabce? Yes, you Avill find her iu tlic woiiieirs tier, right across the yaitl,” said Warden Julian, of Ilaymoml Street Jail, in response to’a (juery put to him by a reitortcr. Seated in a cell was a tall, good-looking girl, with long wavy brown liair. tier face, neck and bands were beautifully Avliite, and no stiuicnt of liu-man nature would have divined from her apitcarancc that she Avas a professional lionsebreaker; that she had seiTod five terms in the CroAv Hill Penitentiary, and that site was the strangest child of crime that had CA'cr been brought Itcfore the public. Ueleasod only last month from jail, she Avas again committed for trial yesterday for a burglary committed last Sunday evening at the residence of James Dorsen, No. 122 (¡rove street, Bii)oklyn, and for stealing from the bouse of Mrs. Charles Hayes, of No. 175 Herkimer street, in the same city. To sitecllicaily describe Ellen Lara-bec is to state that she will be eighteen in Septenihor. She Avcars long brown Jiair, which liHiigs in natiiral Avavelets from her sliapely liead. Her «¡yes arc rougbish aud blue. Her nose Avears the faiutesi suspicion of being retrousse, her inoutli is small and opens always to sIioav an exquisite set of toctli, and tlie exproB-sioit oil Iter alabaster face reaches the golden mean between mildness and austerity. Although tall she does not look her full height, so graceful is her build. Wlicii the cell door Avas unlocketl to allow the reporter adiiilttaiicc, the girl looked up noiielialaiitly'. Her mind didn’t seem to be ou (he reporter, aud she was probably the least eoiicenied of the tAvo. “So you are here again, Ella?” ven-tiir^tl the reporter. “Yes, I did tliink I Avoiild be good Avlieii I came out last time, but I could not. Who are yoti, tliougii ?” Avith an expression of surprise. “1 am a representative of the 3Iail aud Express, and want you to tell mo some of your history.” “Then I won’t. T am dlsirr.iccd eiioiigh already by Iteiiig here Avitlioiit you reporters luaking my iiamo more m'omiiieut. It is a part of the newspaper liistory of the day. By the Avay,” she continued ironically, “I have furnished the reporters with lots of news ill my time.” Then Avith an elevation of her eyebroAVs and a careless shrug she said: “But reporters arc so appreciatiA’c tliat I mav expect (item to think kindly of me.’’ “Will you tell me Avliat you have to say on the charges against you ?” “For tlie second one I am not guilty, tliat is tlic Hayes cliarge, and knoAV iiotliing about it.” “IIoAV did you manage the first?” “1 rcmovci'l a pane of glass from the basement window and pushed back the lock to raise tlio Aviiidow. Tlie glass fell down aud made a noise, so tliat tlie iiciglilxirs saw me and arrested me.” Then Miss lAirabce became as mute as a mouse. “I am getting contcmplatiA’n,” she said Avitli a sinilc, “and shall not sjicak any more*.” Site saiil this in a decided way and bowed tlie reiiortcr to the door. Wanlcii (irccn, of the Kings County Penitentiary, told the importer many interesting ’facts about Ella Lara-bcc. “She lias liecii midcr my care at the Pcnitciitiary,” lie said. “She lias been five timcscumiiiittcd. Hers is a jiecu-liar historv and one that 1 can not uiidcrstainL” “Would you miiid telling me what you know of her?” “It is just as natural for lier to steal us for you to eat.” “Wlio are lier {«arciits ?” “Her fatlier’s name was Connor and lie live<l in Noav York, Avliere slic Avas born. Thcv say slie Avas a love rhibl and tliat her father avus a very liandsome young nian belonging to a Wi'idtliy fa’niily. The girl’s inotlicr was a good looking young woman serving as a domestic in a New York family. Anynow this girl wasadopted soon after she was born by a family named Larabce, living iu Brooklyn.

She said that that baby was dead, and that tiiis girl Ella was found ou her doorstep, left there by some person nnkiiown.” “Then she diics not kni»w if licr name is (Joiiiior, Larabce or sotm;-Ihiiig else ?” “^^^!ll, that is tlio Avay the iiiatUr stands.” “Hoav does she take it?” “Philosophically. She deems herself a child ot the State, and I don’t think sIio botlicrs much about her future. Slic is an eiiigma to me.” “Wiieii Avas she first arrested?” “She first tasted the law in her twelfth year. That Avas for theft. Tlieii her next sentence was fifteen months, followed shortly after Avitli one for tAvo years for burglary. Then site Avas scarcely out of hero Avhen she came back for another six inoiitlis. That penod ex)»ired on the 2t5th of May, 188J, and tJicn sliCAvas sent back again. She was released last month.” “Does she do all her crime of her own accord or is she proniiitcd to it.” “I believe she and the man Larabce Avork together, but she will not say anything on that subject. There i’s not a house in Brooklyn tliey could not enter. She does say, though, that her father, as she calls Larabce, would put her in at the window, aud •lieii she AVOiild pass the things out to him.
