Neither moved or spoke for some moments the one over come by her sad feelings and the other with joyful hope. At last Ixxli broke the silence by saying, as she wiped a few falling tears: "Listen, and when you Tviiow some thing of my life you will not hate the lone Indian woman for bearing you away to become the bride of a man whom you do not love; for I felt glad to think another heart must ache as well as Lodi's. "About twenty years ago, when I had seen but sixteen summers come and go, my father, the great chief Sanutee, and myself went out hunting for game. "We had wandered far away from our wig wam, and were belated in the forest, where we had to remain all night. It was a bright night, and the fane of the Great Spirit looked down from the full moon upon the hunting grounds below, Throwing ourselves beneath a large tree, I told my father I would watch first; but feeling tired and forgetting my promise, T was soon sound asleep beside him. It must have been past midnight that I was aroused by a low growl. Starting to my feet, what did I behold but an enormous wolf with my father in his claws! He had seized him by the throat, killing him instantly. unougti i Knew no lear, and had never been known to run from danger, still, for the first time, my courage seemed to have entirely forsaken me, and I stood almost riveted to the ground with hor ror, as I beheld the wild beast gloat over the mangled remains of my once loved father, and expecting to receive the. same fate every moment. Suddenly my thoughts returned to me, and grasp ing my arrow, which lay upon the ground, I was just In the act of shoot ing, when I heard a loud report, and the wolf full dead at my feet. "When next I remembered anything, T 1 1 i 1 1 tm.j1f Innnillf. linn 41m - . I . x ' LJ, "l " . """'H a young Indian. Soon realizing all, I could not restrain the vivid blush which stole over my cheeks as I gazed upon the handsome face of my unknown pro tector. " 'Forgive me, maiden, if Lonanl has been too bold or oirendcd you. He did all in your defense.' "Forgive him! Could I do other wise? "I arose to my feet, and though I deeply mourned for my father, whom I sincerely loved, still I could not help feeling an inward pleasure as I gazed upon the youthful stranger at my side. Taking me by one hand, and my bow and arrow in the other, he bade me lead him to the wigwam of my father. "The light of the moon threwa ghast ly ray as it presented to our gaze the dissected bones of my father witli the bleeding animal lying beside him. " 'Stop till I bury my kindred,' said I, and covering his bones with stones and leaves, and moistening it with my tears, I left him to rest in solitude, while I returned to my mother and home in company witli the stranger. I need not fell you that I loved him, for this would scarcely reveal to you the donlhidfauy passiou. I had received a rude education from books that my mother had in her possession, and of which I was very fond, and was there VOIiTJSIE II. fore delighted with a companion who could express his ideas in the tongue of civilization, for, rude as T was, I felt I above my station. I "For two months ho tarried with our tribe, and I grew more and more at tached to him, till at last he seemed necessary to my happiness. Though he had never spoken a word of love to me, still his every action showed it, and he was ever ready to grant my every wish would linger at my side to anticipate my slightest bidding. One night as we satin our usual place beneath a grand old cottonwood tree, which grew close to our wigwam, he looked up to the moon as he said: " 'When yon moon is again that size, Txmard will be far away.' "'Away!' screamed T, as the bare possibility, of such a thing crossed my mind. 'Whither would you go'." To the strange and noisy cities of the white man. Lenard would sec more, that he may become wise and great.' " ' ould Lenard seek a wife from among the pale-faces?' asked I, quiz zingly. " Though Lenard might love a pale daughter, yet such a thing as marriage lias never entered his mind. Ho seeks not yet a wife.' "My head dropped upon his shoul der. The bright dream of my younir life was gone so soon. He loved me not. Could it be? Could I have mis taken friendship and kindness for love? Such thoughts as these ran rapidly through my bewildered brain, though I stirred not a muscle, so lifeless did I feel. At last he took my hand, saying as he did so: " 'Lenard shall never forget Lodi : he loves her like a dear sister. Does she love him as well, or will he be forgotten when he is gone?' Fear not; Lodi never forgets. Her memory is as strong as her pale sisters. She will always remember her strange brother who saved her life and made her so happy for a while,' answered I, rising to conceal the feelings which I was too proud to reveal, for I would not give my love unasked. Bidding him good-night, I watched him enter the wigwam of our chief, when I threw my self upon my pallet and cried myself to sleep. The next morning when I awoke he was gone. "For two long years I heard nothing of him, when one day, happening to be at Baton Itougc, T saw him enter a ho tel with a sparkling, beautiful white girl, scarcely as old as myself, iiftun his arm. I know at once, from his tender. careful look, that she was his bride. Casting one long, lingering look upon him and her, whose countenance was stamped forever upon my memory, for I already hated her. I turned and re traced my steps towards my home, feel ing more dreary and desolate than ever; for hope the hope of his return and love that had before brightened my pathway, was now gone, and I cared not what became of me. From that hour I hated every pale daughter, and determined to sadden the heart of the first whom I should happen to meet with. ou are the first. "But troubles and the lapse of years have softened in a measure my heart; and when I looked upon your young, innocent face, I brought to mind ray own youthful days, how sad my heart had been, and I thought perhaps there was one you loved as fondly as I did him, and for whom you pined. Then I resolved to be kind to you and return you to your parents and friends, for Lodi has but a short time longer to live and must do deeds of kindness if she would sport in the happy hunting grounds." As she finished her narrative, the poor old woman dropped her head in the lap of her prisoner, and together they mingled their tears. It was a pic ture enough to melt the stoutest heart. The bright morning sun of a warm Oc tober day shone cheerfully into the open tent. Au elegant skin of the leopard was spread upon the ground, and nion tuts a bright scarlet mat, on which our heroine, in her wild Indian dress, was LcateU.

Sonora broke the long silence thai followed by asking: "What was the other name besides Lonanl?" "DcMidci. I cannot forget it," was the reply, as Lodi raised herself. "It is written here," placing her lmnd upon her heart. "Lenard de Midei! file husband of Catherine! my preserver and friend!" exclaimed Sonora, clasping her hands. "Do you know him? Speak! Does he yet live? And his wife does she still share his love? Answer mo quick. girl!" nnd with a bound she sprang upon her feet.

"Say you so, fair girl? Had I but known this but it matters not. Go on, for I fain would hear all concerning one whom I have loved my life-liuic," and seating herself again, she listened with eager attention to the history which Catherine had related on the day of the unfortune bridal. As Sonora closed with the lamented death of WhiteStar.Lodi, as she gritted her teeth, exclaimed: "Wretch ! Had I but known tills be fore, how mucli sorrow and suffering I might have saved! Ah, but it is not too late yet. I will show him that even an Indian cannot be bribed with his cursed gold. He caused the death of Lenard's child ! 'Tis enough ! 1 would have died for him and his, though I once hated her for taking the place I pined for in his heart. But that is past, and I too will avenge the death of White Star! Fear not you shall not become his bride while Lodowiski lives. From this hour, girl, you have a friend in me. But hark you Hard Heart must not know this. List! he would keep the pale girl to cltccrhis toigtmm to be his bride."' "What! do I hear aright? Oh, too horrible!" screamed Souora, now newly terrified. "Even so. He knows my vow of ha tred to the pale daughters and thinks you secure with me. His intention is to put the white chief to death, so that lie may claim you as his squaw." "Oh, horrible! Even more horrible fate! Save me, Ixxli, save me, and I will make you rich and happy. My father "Sh ! no more, child ! He comes. Look sad. I must bo stern, dark and cruel; but fear not," and rising, she left Sonora's side and took a seat in a dis tant comer, assuming that same cold and wicked look which she had worn throughout the whole. "Does the pale dove still pine?" asked Hani Heart in his own language as he entered the tent dressed in the full costume of a chief of his tribe, willi his magnificent plumes of scarlet os trich nodding gracefully as he turned his head to look upon our heroine. Still the same. She pines for the old doves in whose arms she would nes tle; but leave her to Lodi. She will soon be glad to forgot aud become a willing squaw to the great chieftain who sighs for her love. Have patience, The harder the battle the more lasting n. ..w.. . i- 1 ti: 1 .1 he gloo," replied Lodi, in the same tongue. " 'Tis well, then. Hani Heart is pa tient, knowing that he has her safe in the hands of a bravo squaw, who will not be too mild. When the white cliier comes I will beguile him, and when we become good friends, aud the money is ourf, then I will take his scalp to grace the belt of Hard Heart's bride. See?" and the deceitful savage chuckled a low laugh. "As you say. 'Tis time lie conies soon. I must not let the pale dove droop." During this conversation, which was carried on in the Indian language, So- nora sat perfectly quiet, thinking, "Is my Indian friend to be trusted or not? Perhaps even now she is plotting my destruction." But with a firm reliance upon her Father in heaven, whose watchful eye she knew was upon her, she felt safe Poor Itisscy knew not what to make of the strange gestures and language of the Indians, and would crouch down with terror whenever one approached her; but with her eyes fixed upon the serene countenance of her young nth tress, she determined to be as brave and composed as she, for she had been taught by her the love and fear of God, though her ignorance aud superstition rendered her less capable of bciug re signed.

It would rerjuiro but two or three hours longer if I get her once a fortnight, and I shall save fifty cents a week by it." "Where your own sex are concerned, you women are the closest beings," said Mr. P., laughing. "Do as you please, however," he continued, as he observed a frown gather on the brow of his wife; "formy parti should bcglad if washing days were blotted entirely from the calendar." At this moment the washerwoman passed the window witli her stiffened skirts aud almost frozen hands ami arms. Some emotions of pity stirring in his breast at the sight, he again asked, "Do you thliik it will be exactly right, my dear, to make old Phoebe, do the same amouut of labor for half the wages?" "Of course It will," replied Mrs. Percy, decidedly; "we are bound to do the best we can for ourselves. If she objects, she can say so. Tliero arc plenty of poor I can get who will be glad to come, aud by this arrangement I shall save twenty-six dollars a year." "So much," returned Mr. P., care lessly; "how these tilings do sum up!" Here the matter ended as far as they were concerned. Not so with "old Plnrbe," as she was called. In reality, however, Phcobo was not yet forty; it was care and hardship which had seamed her once blooming face, and brought on prematurely the appearance of age. On going to Mrs. Percy iu the evening aftcrshe had finished her wash, for the meagre sum she had earned, that lady had spoken somewhat harshly about her being so slow, and mentioned the new arrangement she intended to carry into effect, leaving it optional to the poor woman to accept or decline. After a moment's hesitation, l'hrabe, whoso necessities allowed her no choice, agreed to her proposal, and the lady, who had been fumbling in her purse, remarked: "I havo no change, nothing loss than this three dollar bill. Supjiose I pay you by the month hereafter; it will save me a great ileal of trouble, and I will try to give you your two dollars a mouth regularly."

And as the baby nestled its head! closer to her side, and lifted its pale, im-1 ploring face, the anguished mother's fortitude gave way, and she burst into au agony of tears and sobbings. ! By-the-by, do some mothers, as they sit by the softly-lined cradles or their own beloved babes, ever think upon the sufferings of those hapless little ones, many times left with a scanty supply of food, aud no lire, on a cold, winter day, while the parent is earning the pittance which is to preserve them from starva tion? And lest somo may suppose that we are drawing largely upon our im agination, wc will mention, iu titis place, that we know or a child left under vuch circumstances, aud hair perishing with cold, who was nearly burned to death by some hops (for tliero was no fuel to be found) which it scraped to gether in its ragged apron, and set on fire with a coal found in the ashes. Phcebo did not long indulge in grief, however: she forgot her weary limbs, aud, bustling about, soon made up a fire aud boiled some potatoes, which con stituted their supper after which she nursed the children, two at a time for a while, and then put them tenderly to bed. Her husband had not come home, and as he was nearly always intoxicated, and sometimes ill-treated her sadly, she felt his absence a relief. Sitting over a handful of coals, she attempted to dri ller wet feet. Every bone in her body ached, for she was not naturally strong, and, leaning her head on her hand, she allowed the big tears to course slowly down her checks, without making any attempt to wipe them away, while she murmured: "Twenty-six dollars a year gone!

Oh. dear! oh, dear! oh, dear! if it were not for my ba'oes I should yearn for the quiet of the grave." And with a long, quivering sigh, sucli as one might hear at the rending of soul and body, Piuube was silent. Daughters of luxury, did it ever occur to you that we are all children of one common Parent? Oh! look, hereafter, with pity on those faces when the records of their suffering are deeply graven and remembered. "Be ye warmed and filled," will not suffice, un less the hand executes the promptings of the heart. Aftera while, as the lire died out, Phoebe crept to her miserable pal let, crushed with the prospect of the days of toil which were still before her, and haunted witli the idea of sickness and death, brought on by over-taxation of her bodily powers, while in case of such an event, she' was tortured by the rcllection "What is to become of my children ?" Ah, this anxiety is the true bitterness of death to the friendless and poverty stricken parent. In this way sho passed the night, to renew, with the dawn, the toils and cares which were fast closing their work on her. Wc will not say what Phobe, under other circumstances, might have been. Sho possessed every noble attribute common to woman without education or training, but she was not prepossessing In her appearance; and Mrs. Percy, who never studied characters, orsympathized with menials or strangers, would havo laughed at the idcaof dwelling with compassion on the lot of the washerwoman with a drunken husband.

Giiils who "Wouldn't Pay Toll. The Jersey City Journal says: The other day two youug ladies of Monticeilo avenue started out ior a wane, mey rambled out into the fields, and talked over their love affairs in a confidential way. as young ladies are wont to do. After a walk or some twenty minutes they came to au old-fashioued stile, through which only one could pass at a time. On the top sat an English sailor, who had just enough "alf and alf" alloat to make him saucy, while a shipmate strolled on a tew feet ahead of him. Tho girls passed sailor number one without any trouble, but number two was not so easily got rid of. He kept possession or the sine, declaring they were "bonny lasses, an' he moii av a kiss, alore they could cum hover.' The girls greatly objected to this kind of toll; but were loth to turn back, and entreaties and threats were alike un heeded. Jack had possession, and lie meant to make the most of it. "My wonl," said lie, "aw could git only lass to kiss me at 'omc, an' aw can stop here till yerc ready." But the lasses had no notion of staying there very long, and seeing the other sailor was passingalong very quietly, they grew bolder, and told him "to get out of the way, as they were goiug over anyhow." And with this notice they uotn siancu for Mr. Bull, jerked him out of the stile, in double quick time, and "laid him out" iu the ditch, where he got a pretty good coat of Jersey mud, when the girls made good their escape. Ihe lasti thei heard of him lie was exclaiming "Ere's a go; licked by two Yankee gals!" nded woman t twmit. man the following gentle stroll made the following gei ue to a politician who had called at ausetoget her husband to go to the and vote: "No, sir, he citn'tgo reply her house ....11 . r ..i.rnr: n'tr. and he's got to iron to-morrow, and if ho wasn't doing any. thing he couldn't go.

A high-toned young gentleman at Brentville, Virginia, has been indulging iu the safe amusement or shooting au intimate friend or his sister through the bars or a jail. We doubt if this would be considered good form even among tho Fijis. A situation-seeking young lady no ticed an advertisement for one to do light house-keeping. She wrote imme diately to tho advertiser, asking where tho lighthouse was, and if there was any way of getting to the shore on Sun days ! There is but one temple in the world, and that is tho body of man. Nothing is holier than this high form. Bending before men is a reverence done to this revelation in the llesh.
