While or. Falconer gave Way to the Stor my feelings within him his wife made no attempt to Check them in their course to forget her own agitation As far As possible she arose and commenced her new her delicate hands trembled As she washed the Tea dishes for the first , but her Sweet countenance betrayed no scorn at her Humble task she self even happier than she had done for some time her husband had at last told her the extent of their poverty. She was no longer doubtful How to act. Al though their situation was worse than she expected her heart thrilled with happiness to know that it was in her Power to cheer their poverty. She Felt How was woman s task to soften and temper Man s harsher nature in the hour of trial to Point him to higher and loftier sources of happiness to still in Hie bos Orri selfish and earthly Pas Sions from beneath the ashes of crushed Hopes to bring Forth the deep arid gentle things that Lay buried in his inward soul to Tell him of his capacity for purer Joy when worldly blessings fade away and of a More glorious Beauty that dwells enshrined in the sacred Temple within which May not be approached save by the Gates of sorrow All this one thought and her bosom was filled in its very depth with that Sweet but Calm Joy which makes outward trials Light. The wife was indeed purer and nobler in adversity than in Prosperity. When her husband became More composed she said gently note to meet in a few of Urs and must have the Little that was due. I told him i could not part with what i had and even offered to let him take my piano for the rent. When he found i really had Money in the House he became almost insulting and i was obliged to give it to him i had a Strong Hope that asked Dis something would happen to relieve us before night to i Dill not Tell you at dinner a dark Shade had fallen Over Falconer s countenance while his wife was speaking but he arose without saing any thins and took up his Bat to go out.

I trill not endure this meekly that hate Ful mrs. Falconer leaned her head against the mantelpiece and the tears fell from her eyes in torrents. She herself bad been to the grocer s in the afternoon and her p ri4e had been bitterly stung by being coolly de with a business like shake of head no at the thought of the intense feeling of mortification that came Over her As the grocer uttered these words she could not restrain a she knew that her bus bane.1. Be exposed to the same Cool impudence if he went. She could. To his sufferings by telling him the manner in which she. Had been treated. When Falconer heard her weeping he started from the bitter revery into which he had fallen ane1 this is the sting of accept favors from those beneath yet 1 do wrong to say beneath i should be grateful for kindness from any before opening the letter she arose and Knelt by the Cradle of her child. Vague presentiment that the letter contained bad tidings came Over her and she wished to school her heart to submission to whatever might happen. She Bent Over the Cradle that held her treasure and with the fond Eye of a Mother watched its infant amid its hushed slumbers the smile of inno Cence played Over its Young lip. And occasionally dimpled the fair soft Check. The Mother Felt As if Angels peopled the dreams of her Darling a tear trembled in her Clear dark Eye As she raised it to ask of heaven blessings on her Little one. Her heart filled with a Meek and hallowed Joy and when she arose it was with renewed St Engh to Bear the trials that might ennoble her spirit and make her More truly a Mother. Seating herself at the table she broke the Seal of her father s letter and read the Fol lowing intelligence my dear need not Tell you that it is with feeling of acute pain i sit Down to write this letter. Its contents will sufficiently explain. Of How can i say stamping violently i bid father is a bankrupt my All is gone May god support me under this heavy affliction.

I Hope Yon Are getting and the doctor recommends a Southern climate for a residence. I therefore shall go with her and make my Home in we have relatives. I Hope there to climb Fame s Mountain Steep More rapidly. How soon could you move to Philadelphia i hesitated for i had not the Means to go. Ingersoll understood Iny silence with out saying any thing he approached nearer the lamp and taking from his pocket Book a fifty Dollar it to Ine saying if this will relieve you from pecuniary embarrassment Falconer take it and repay me whenever it is convenient i Tork it Ami said Only Ingersoll a thousand Strong emotions struggled for the Mastery in my breast. My heart thrilled with admiring gratitude and yet Foi a moment my selfish Pride triumphed. But it soon melted away before his Noble spirit i bowed Iny head upon Liis hand and wept with a strange humility. I know this is wounding to your he said but remember we Are old friends of i a glowing Falconer laughing. Strange neither of you have grown thin you seem to care. More for your Tea than for my what shall i do to overcome such a dangerous propensity i shall die As soon As i learn to live without eating or i j might attempt it to oblige you. But you look tired Charles she continued playfully brushing Back the hair from Bis White fore head. Don t insinuate that i look tired when you Are entertaining me with such a flux de said her hts Batty with his fashioned smile. The Young wife laughed and Saivii gaily Well i in the humor for pouring into your Oais a continual artillery of non sense can you stand the fire without shrink without doubt honoured macrame i am Art All impatience for what i think it must be for something to eat. I forgot i was a Little household Pray excuse me. Charles if we Are poor the fountains of happiness Are not sealed up in our have we not our child to need not be poor in affection and feeling we yet have health with intellect and reason to guide us Forward in a path we must not shrink from treading of if Hope would but lightly flutter her Winga hover near mrs. Falconer leaned her Arm on his Shoul Der arid overcome by the feelings that Crow ded upon her heart burst into tears. My own wife i am a wretch to com Plain when i have you said Ner husband drawing his Arm around her and gazing in her face with an expression of deep pure affection. Again he slightly inclined his head and that momentary Light faded from his countenance. After a pause he said abruptly yet it is no sin to Grieve that i cannot provide for those i 0, Clara i could labor night and Day to make you and our Sweet child Why am i deprived of happiness he stopped and. His brow gathered into a gloomy frown. There is no Justice in be said again almost fiercely. Would you wrest Power from the hands of asked his wife. Does not the Wing of the almighty Shadow us now As in happier Days of do not think we Are will soon get business then All will be Well if we try to do right and every thing does not succeeded Why should we be so unhappy would it be if we were truly Good and sufficiently trusted in the divine Providence should we not believe the Ever guiding hand of god is in to his tastes.

But this could riot last Al s. The hard times came and the elder Ner who bad speculated largely in Active real estate became considerably affairs grew worse and it was total that tha wealthy merchant met Fai Urc. This was a heavy blow the smallest As Well As the greatest events endeavouring by every circumstance to draw us nearer to purity and goodness even the most he not Ever try to withhold them from plunging into worse evils if we Are pure in our intentions All things will work together for Good approached her. The passionate flush faded from his countenance. Forgive my harsh mood he said in a voice that struggled to be firm i have tried to be patient i have crushed my proud spirit until it has seemed at times As if its very life strings would snap asunder with the Effort. I thought i had grown More resigned but the Volcano of Strong passion within me has been Only smothered that its flames might burst Forth with a More intense Power. I am in despair of Clara i have held Back my feelings for your Sake but .1 cannot stifle them when Falconer turned to his wife he had intended to be Calm and try to Comfort her but before he was aware of it he had poured Forth the language of his soul. When he ceased speaking he sunk upon a chair his Frame Shook with the heavy sobs that Rose from his bosom for his Strong spirit had yielded to abandonment. An hour passed away and not a word had been spoken. Mrs fal Coner bad seated herself at a Little stand to sew but her Woik Lay in her Lap and her eyes were Bent thoughtfully on the the expression of her countenance was pain fully sad. She started when her husband Rose and said to her in a Low Calm tone i shall soon she raised her Trou bled eyes to his face with an inquiring expression but nothing More. He was Calm but very Pale it seemed As if his spirit bad been chastened and had acquired strength to suffer in that hour of combat. He had not been Gong Long when a Knock was heard at mrs. Falconer s door. She Rose quickly from her chair and opened it. Her heart fluttered with a sudden Hope for she dreamed Only of Relief. Here s a letter for Yon mrs. Falconer said a Man who lived in another part of the House. She took it and her eyes brightened along comfortably your Mother intended to have you and the baby spend part of the win Ter with us but now it cannot be _ May god for Ever bless you my dear Good child and strengthen your heart to Bear All the trials you May meet in this life. Your affectionate father William when mrs. Falconer had finished Reading this Brief but sad epistle she Felt is if her tue were Lull. She was yet holding it in her band when Ber husband entered.

When he had finished the letter he it can t be possible your father owes much he was always a cautious and upright in All Bis dealings Falconer fell into a fit of deed his wife wondered if he had got any Money but did rot ask him. She thought when he first in offed his manner was cheerful. At length i said Daft i am full of plans to night 1 .1 hardly Inow where to commence to Tell you. But a Plin for your father which 1 have just thought of must come first. While i was out i Henry old classmate. He left Only two Days ago and he tells me Uncle Falconer succeeds beyond and let that cancel All feelings of obligation n. I will White to my father and he will gladly Welcome you.

Fal Coner face tear after had been starting during the recital. How refresh ing and pure it Falls upon the heart to meet with kindness in times of trouble. It seems As if a beam of sunlight were shed in the bosom weary with struggling and apparently struggling in vain. When our own spirits Are bowed Down with sorrow How much More fully can we appreciate an action towards us which irom True generosity by upright Prin his exp i think free the tation in his new business. Now our father could engage with him in they Are first rate business men and i life not a doubt but they could soon selves from or. Falconer Maile no reply but he arose his eyes were misty with tears. He Felt that evidence of holier feeling was rot i. Weakness. He would have spoken but he feared to lose his self command and Only pres de his lips which slightly trembled up on his wife s paused a moment then turned to leave the room but came Back and kissed her again tenderly while a As she recognised the handwriting of her father. She was about to break the Seal when the Man said the postman is waiting at the the color came into her face hesitated then her fingers pressed the letter to see if it contained any Money but it did not. The Man observed her motion he if it could to so mrs. Smiling with Delight at the they re such warm friends. I should not be sure sed if they thought of it them Sel ves i wit do you think of returning to Phil Adelphia Clara asked Falconer after a pause. I would be delighted Pray Tell me what said what did be recommend you to do of i am sure something Fortuna has happened from your our potty has reached its Climax and now better Mes Are Falcier smiled to see How quickly his wife s qirits recovered their cheerful tone at the tre supposition of a change for the better., Kcjr Organ of Hope is so largely de he said that it seems in you that trouble can last.

It has been thought by Oij Tuat Young Ingersoll might in time ont Shusis father. Among other things he smiled peculiarly then with a Low Bow walk i asked 6 How i prospered. 1 told him Frank a said Falconer in reply if men were willing to be All they Are capable of being How like god s own Paradise this Des Olate Earth might Bloom again. We see Good Ness afar off and acknowledge its Beauty with a thrill of Sublime Delight if personified by others but when it comes Home to our own hearts its loveliness is hidden. We shrink from the thorny and laborious path we must travel before our deep rooted selfishness will admit it As a guest. It is not difficult to appear Good in the eyes of others but the kingdom where our thoughts and feelings dwell requires a hand Strong and never fail ing in its efforts to conquer. We must explore the secret Chambers of the soul and where purified the image of the creator will Shine there reflected by the Light of heaven of Clara when i think of life in its Ful Ness and i think of the deep impulses and Noble sympathies god in his love has Given heart sinks As i turn to dwell on the strange music that so often breathes Over the Harp strings of the if trial and sorrow come upon us the Harmony is hushed we forget in our desolation to bring Forth a wild yet sweeter Strain. Of Why could i not be resigned when All was dark to me if you were an Angel it would be interrupted mrs. Falconer gently but it is Only through Light and darkness that we May become Angels. The very sufferings we pass through show our capabilities for something higher. Would ged afflict us lightly or in heeding by i Hope Charles we May be better and happier from our three months after or. And mrs.
