The shadows of night are upon tho Mon
umental City. . It is bitter cold, and the
snow is falling like white winged spirits
and tho wind is roaring as if the fiends
wore holding concert together. The streets
are nearly deser'ed, for twhing but ne
cessity would cause the pedestrian to stem
the storm upon such a night, lint see
there is a single traveler urging his way
onward by the dim and misty light of the
city lamps.. He is well protected n gainst
tha raging element j a thick overcoat . is
wrapped around him, and his hands are
encased in gloves, while a warm cap cov
ers his head and ears. " Hastily he pas
ses on, and as ha crosses Fayette street
the figure of a woman starts up before
him. .. . .... , .. i
" riease, 6ir, assist us, we are starv
ing!". . . "
He hesitates his first impulse is to go
on, his second is to stop. He gazes at the
woman. Her face is pale And thin ; yes,
thin as famine' sister her garments rag
ged and scanty. He it a mnnt so he
makes an attempt to reach his pocket.
She sees the set, and as hopes of assist
ance come up before her, her lustreless
eye blighted. '...'. - . .
But see! her hopes are frustrated the
man of wtalth forgets that his coat i but
toned over his pocket. He shakes his
head and passes on. The poor woman for
a moment is plunged iu deipair. - Jlut then
her hutbuiid and child are starving nay
dying, and 6he resolves to make ' one
moro - effort. Sho orerlukes him, 'and
raising her tearful eyes, says:
"O, do, kind sir, assist us, if it is only a 1
penny." The cold wind is blowing, and
the snow flakes are hurled in the faces of
the two nnd while the man of wealth is
comfortable beneath the warm clothing,
tho wandering beggar is. trembling and
shuddering from the bitter blast
Again humanity prompts bim to assist
her, but then the wind is so cutting, that
he hearkens not to her voice. u -.
" It is too much trouble, he mutters to
himself, and speaking aloud, . he says
" where do you live " " '
"In Happy alley, sir.
" Perhaps I will call to-morrow, and
help you. " ." ; ' , r
" To-morrow will bo too late. " For two
days we have been without food. To
morrow may see us dead." ;
Human nature could not withstand this
appeal, and already one button of his
overcoat is unfastened, when a cold blast
i of wind comes round tho corner,1 making
him shiver as he feels its icy breath. He
buttons up again and says i .
I hava nothing for you; if you are .iu
want, go to tho Alms House." The wo
man shrinks back without uttering a word,
and draws her ragged garments around
her shivering form, but a tear can be dis
cerned glittering on . her cheek, by the
dim light of the misty - lump. - The man
gazes upon her face as the light falls up
on it, and ataru back, exclaiming,
Mary!" , . : ; . '
"(JoJof Heavens, my father !" and
the wreiehed woman totters toward him.
' "Away I curse yoii.

Father, spenk not thus, and tho mis
erable woman throws herself at her fa
ther's feet. For my child's sake, I crave
assistance as for myself I am willing to
starve but my child and husband, I can
not see want."
' I tell you no money of mino shall ev
er go to tho man whom you call your
husband. So awny "and ho casts the
kneeling supplicant from him.

ing herself across hit path, she prays as
only a woman ran pray for those she lovos.
For two days wo have been without food,
and to-morrow we shall be turned in the
streets homeless. Just a little, my God,
you will not see us starve I Tho father's
heart is touched. ' The appeal - of his
daughter has aroused tho dormant feel

" Then o(T with you starve if you
choose I disown you forever."
- With faltering steps she takes her de
parture for her homo of misery. She
reaches at last tho abodo of poverty. It
is indeed the scene of wretchedness
thnt miserable room a few broken chairs
an old table a bed of straw, made up
the furniture. Want haggard want
is stamped upon tho pale features of her
only child, as he crouches in a corner A
man is lying upon the bed, and from the
fumes of liquor wuicii arises, it is evi
dent lhal lie is intoxicated. Starvation
has made him reckless he driuks - to
drown sorrow and the fiend is now his
master. See as his wife enters, he rises
up, and reels towards her.
" Well, did you get any money ?n
" I have seen my father, Charles, and
he refuses to assist us. lie has cast me
off." . . . , .
" Then we must starve or i"
Charles, dear Charles, talk not so. I
will work, yea, if it must be I will beg."
' " No, no, my pretty one, you shall do
neither. To-morrow we shall be turned
into tho street by old Noyes. our landlord,
but he shall rue the day. Money I must
and will have ; and so saying, he leaves
the house. ' .
Bitter, bitter are the thoughts which
now crowd upon the unhappy woman.
Once sho enjoyed a father's love wealth
was hers, and nil her prospects were
bright and cheering. But Charles West
came and won her love, and despite of all
the threats and warnings of her father,
she married him. Misfortunes pressed
heavily upon them. Poverty seized them
in its iron grasp. ' She applied to her fa
ther for assistance it was refused. . As
all these bitter truths rushed ppon her she
wept in anguish and sorrow. Upon the
bed of straw she throws herself , for night
is upon the world. . Her hubband is ab
sent, and fears of some calamity take pos
session of .her. She can not sleep, but
tosses to and fro in misery. . Wretched

Come now, beloved- reader, and let ' us
enter the counting room of Mr. Gorsuch.
The proprietor is one of that cla- s often
met with, who have no heart for tho mis
ery of others. He .never gives to the
needy never helps the unfortunate
but yet is a class leader in a fashionable
church. He is walking up and down his
counting. room as if anxious for the arri
val of some one. His clerk enters, and
thus be ia accosted ;
" John,, turn to Charles West's ac
count." , ...
"I have sir." . ' . J ,
. " How doe it stand ?" . . . '
. "Three tnonth's rent due,, sir. '
" You know him, i ho able to pay ?
" I fear not, sir."
'Can't they pay1 part not even a

" No, sir ; they are in yreat diaTess."
" Then bundle them of at once. Turn

The deed is done. What cared the
man of wealth for the misery be brought
upon the innocent T Nuihihg. 114 must
have the paltry sum vf hit rent, even
though it took the blood of the victim to
obtain it. He can go upon a Sunday to
church, and as ho kneels down, prays for
God's blessing, and thanks the Lord he ia
not like other men. No pangs of corn
science prey upon him ; money has swal
lowed up every feeling of his nature and
left him a brute. Reader, how mauy
such does the world contain t " .
It is night. In a filthy cellar, about
the center of the city, there is the family
of Charles West engulfed in misery
One only child is theirs j and so weak is
tho thread of its existence, thnt the breath
of one more storm would divide it. His
wife, poor woman, slill is by him, and de
rotodly attonds him.
See! the wretched man comes towards
her he is inCbrinted I Hush he speaks I
"Money I must have T'
"I have none," sho answers calmly.'
"You lie, you hussy you have a shil
"I had it, but I laid 'it out this morning
for medicine for our child, and this is aU
I have," and she placea before him a
three cent, pioce. '
"Give it to me but you have more.
Let the child die ! It is only in the way!
Moro money I will have !"
"As God is my witness, it is all I have.
We have not a cent, to buy bread."
He is standing, staring in silence, first
at his wife and then at his child. See
he seizes upon a knife and throws it
yes, throws it my God at his child.
The mother's feelings' predominate
over that of tho wife, and the dart for
ward to save her child. She receives the
blow upon the temple, and streaming with
blood she falls upon the floor.' Horrible
bteiiu ! It would cause a bitter smile to
see how that poor, weak, emaciated child
seizes the murderer in its tiny hands and
cries tor neip.
see the cellar is filled with the neigh
bors tliey gaze with horror on the sight,
and curse the author of the damning:
deed. . Behold the man, who at last has
consummated his brutality, standing, or
rather leaning helplessly against the U
ble he it bereft of reason, a nack of
dirty cards are dropping from his Docket
and mixing with the blood of the mur
dered. He takes no notice of the child
or iu struggle. An ashy paleness over,
spreads his face his knees totter his
eyes are glaring wildly, first at the in
truders, then at the door, as if calculating
to escape. But if such is his intention, it
is frustrated, for they seize him and con
sign him to a cell. The last act in the
tragedy is over. For the life which he
