Critics and patrons ' may not think so; but as it is neither for exhibi tion nor sale, I care little for the opinion of either class."' . •' ■ My eye fcfl carelessly upon the worlc; but in stantly I became fascinated with the sweet face that lay before me. How shall I describe the contour of that all hut angelic countenance. The mouth was small, almost to deformity, and behind the half opened lips of carnation, wreathed with a weary-like smile, could be ssen teeth of pearl. l*he forehead was not „high *rior vet too low, neither bold nor broad, and yet its polished surface gave evidence of more than womanly intellect accompanied by much differing. The deep blue eyes, peeping from be neath long silken lashes, from which there came to inc a soft, suffering light, confirmed the impression which the brow seemed to indicate. The soft cheeks fvad a luijf-fudocl expression on them, as if the bloom of youth had, by rough usage or the world, been rudely brushed away. The nose was delicately drawn, and gave to the otherwise contradictory language of the entire face, the thought that suffer ing had never been the companion of her whose lineament* were thus sihhkmly brought befbie me. f llie milrNajhich was redundant Und of ft dark golden shade, rolled itself into natural ring lets and half-shaded a throat and neck that were as alabaster. Over the whole was thrown a combined halo of youth and purity, that was as refreshing to look upon as is water to the thirsty lips of the trav eler in the desert. As the eye gradually fell to the bust, surprise was naturally expressed. That and the rest of the body, so far as tbe canvas gave it, was clothed in rags ! The posture was recumbent. The small, delicately, shaped hands were clasped together as if in prayer, aud the sweet eyes were turned heavenward, where were gathered sombre clouds, charged and about to fill the intervening space between and the kneeling figure with countless Hakes of snow. rfs this a fancy sketch -a dream ?” I asked. “ No.” was the answer. ”lt is reality. The story of that sweet face is a sad one.” “ Tell’it to me," 1 said 'lhe artist turned aside and was silent. "Wliat was the story?” 1 again asked. Tills time the painter looked at me, and while his lips quivered, replied : •■ft is the old story; neglect, love, death. When many years younger than I anr to-day; when my heart was filled with ambitious desires; while I vet dreamed of a future; while life was young in me, and the world, in my inexperienced eyes was an Eden, 1 (net her ,in the position I have placed her) whose portrait is before you.” “Well,” I whispered, us I waited impatiently for the words of friend, who had again my turned his fate from me and the canvas. “It was a stormy, chilly evening in the month of he resumed. "There was seasons** hodr oTdayfTglif left, when passing up one’of our fashionable si reels, I beheld near the stops of. a nch man's dwelling a figure kneeliug as if in prayer.— Curiosity impelled me to stop and watch the move ments of, by her garments, one- believed to be a beggar. • ‘BiuW-d'id X watching, she arose to andi rigged shawl \Wper»oft was afiotif to move away, when either from weak ness or the slippery condition of the walk, she fell violently to the ground. ti o u I Ij c r nKo uj i an.

I need not say they were beantl ful. but I could never portray the piteous look she gave me as I raised her emaciated body in my strong arms. Nor can I point the feeling that possessed me, as I said, in an agitated voice : “ ‘Are you hurt, my child f ” ‘No, sir,’ was the faltering repiy*- “I oould see however, that it wgs with much dif ficulty she could stand erect, .and there was a pallor in her face that frightened me. , i *v Bore airyou nfvTwcd. “There was a struggle, and then came faintly to my ear— ■'T “ ‘I have no home.” “‘No home—no home!' I cried. ‘Great heav ens ! k it possible,’ T murmured, ‘that so young, so beautiful; and so delicate, should be friendless!’ 1 agath looked fn her face, aiild now the dreadful truth seemed to flash upon me, that tbe sweet waif I still continued to hold by the .arm, was starr ing- -starving! “ ‘Have you eaten to-day?’ I asked, abruptly. "There cainc ho answer. The body of the girl drooped, and again would have fallen had I not sus tained it. “Fortunately, no one was in the street at the time and therefore no throng of idle spectators gathered around to disconcert me. “ I placed tbe child on the step as best I could; and ran to tho area of the house. There I signalled oue of its women-servitors to come to me. In a few ■words iTeqnesfed that theStfSnger might be admit ted to the house until I could find a can iage in which she could be conveyed to my apartments, where uiy sister would gladly receive and nourish her until she was prepared to assist herself. “ The woman very reluctantly submitted to my request, although I could sec she was not without fecting. " I'm afriad the missis’ll scold me,’ she said; ‘but m help the child in.’ “Tcu initiates had not elapsed before I had my* yet insensible burthen in a hack, and was driving w ith her to my rooms. "My kind sister, without an interrogatory, assisted me in placing the littlo beggar on her own bed, where I left her to the tender care of a woman whose whole soul was steeped in pity. Restoratives were appljS«L l’ut It was nearly a week before the girl waa strong enough to Bit up. Her convalescence was slow. Indeed, she never fully recovered from the had in the days preceding found ney, in tlie conversations we hud togeth er, naturally intelligent. In temper she was as sweet as ir visage beautiful, aqd I loved her—loved her with a heart that Dad no 'dro6s in* it. Her pain fii his tor) i date hid to relate. It' would lie only a rehearsal of fiii’ndleßsnesg, want and misfortune.— Through all her sad trials, however, she had pre served her purity, her native nobleness of soul, and in.nure simplicity oi character was a being to be worshiped. “You have seen such, sir, I presume. We meet now aud then in our pilgrimage angels incarnated— angels who are beyoud the posihility of human Btain. Meta was one of these. “My good sister learned to love her as tenderly as if indeed she were of her own blood. “The child was a natural artist. She had true genius. Her aptitude was wonderful. She seemed to absorb knowledge. Intuitively she accepted of all that was good and true; while, as dross dis engages itself from the pure ore by want of affinity, nothing injurious could attach itself to her. "I worshiped her, adored my Waif, my Meta. “The thoughts that filled my 60ul trembled on my lips, and I saw behind the sadness tiiat filled her eyes that her love for me was as mine for her. “t knew not then tbe reason, but with soft, gen tle words, while her lips quivered and tears clouded those glorious orbs which .1 have but indifferently placed u|K>n the canvas, she said me nay. “ ‘Wait, George." she murmured in her low, mu sical voice, ‘wait, my friend, my preserver, for the end. There is something whispers to me night and day that this may not he—that despair would come of it. And yet, oh my kind friend, I love you with all my being,’ “Aud as the artless girl—scarcely yet eighteen— wtthbift oneTn lhe wide earth she could claim ks kindred—spoke, she placed her small hands in mine, and looked np in iqy fact with so touching an ex presssioa that'l could not hut kneel at her feet, and pray that Heaven would preserve her to me.” Tbe limner pn»«3 and pla«o tk hit ms ■ m sa foce. The strong man was moved to tears. I did not dare to look toward him; Bbt as I glan ced at the portrait new bcautic revealed themselves to me in the transcendantly beautiful face. “At length months afterward,” he whispered, “the reason Meta refused my hand, refused to ac cept me as her husband, and, thus give me a right to establish my claim ever as her true friend before the word; was revealed. “Gradually, for those weary months she had been waisting away. She had bravely concealed from my sister and myself the dreadful secret. Even before 1 had asked her to be mine, another had sought aud claimed her as his own-even Heath. “Day by day, like a flower rent from its parent i stem, she withered before us. She was beyond the j reach of human aid. When we vainly thought the ! dreadful disease that had seized upon her hod re-; leassd its hold, she smiled and closed her eyes, wliils i my name lingered on her lipa, to reopen them on earth. '' “And thus Meta died. “We returned her body, my sister and me, to-it* parent earth; bat it was long before either of us could he persuaded that the angel we had entertain ed aud made our own bad gone to that better land, where, I trust, I shall meet her and be with her for ever. " And this is the story of the beggar girl’s por trait. ... ( “It was not until years subsequent to her demise that I could trust myself to place on canvas her features. I have painted her as I first beheld her —kneeling before the door of the rich man’s man sion , praying to God for.sncflor in that hour when her body wee perishing from wants” The artist tenderly took the canvas-up. looked at it with tqg|stt eyes, and then put it back in its old corner, where no heedless visitor oouid seo it—a gem worth more than money could purchase to him who "painted it.

A ModzsT Man in a Pbzdicament .—Mr. Tom Loughrin is noted all over the city for his modesty. He stands six feet two in his stockings, and at least six feet of him is made up of modesty. At an early hour yesterday morning Mr. L. was making his toil et at his residence on Prate avenue an i .Walnut street, he was standing in front of his mirror, with only oue garment on—and that a rather short one and had lathered his face preparatory to mowing his lieard, when li« was startled by a shrill scream from Biddy, his servant girl, and his wife called to him that Bridget was on lire. Mr. L , with an admira ble presence of mind, seized a quilt from the bed, and, reaching the bottom of the stairs at two jumps, soon enveloped the flaming damsel in the folds of the quilt, and smoth -red the flames befere the girl was seriously injured. While Mr. L. was thus en gaged, some dozen ladies from adjoining houses, hearing the screams of the girl, rushed in to see what was the matter. They arrived in time to see tTre sm ss—z.. 1 o--r .....a.giJ- ' r — looked around and saw the ladies, and, remember ing that he had not finished bis toilet, went up stairs a little faster than he had come down. The ladies tittered, and at every titter, Mr. L. accelerated his speed, and when he reached his room he was covered with a profuse persplratiou. He says it was the most embarrassing position he was ever plaoed in, aud hopes never to be caught iu such a fix again.

Szczssioj a Massachusetts Doctbine —The follow ng extract, from “ Townsend's Encyclopedia of the Great Bebpllion,” shows that Massachusetts ill times past ns now. favored the policy of obstruction when it was desiled to add a State to the Union : “In Jainary. 1811, the author of this reminis cence was dt Washington. The question of admis sion of Louisiana, then a Territory, into the Union as a State, l»as under consideration. “ Mr. I’nfdrus was the delegate to Congress.

In short, we arc all losing uni trust in the stability ol anything. Asa natural consequence ol all this, capi tal will lie drawn in, trade retrenched, labor thiown out oi employment, tiie customary channels of commerce radically altered, sc: entities of all kinds, not excepting those of the government, depreciated, enterprise am! speculation discouraged, confidence and credit destroyed, and, as the last result, in dividual insolvency, failures in business, the crush of great financial and industrial corporations, aud general ruiu and stagna tion, will follow. We do not say that’this calamitous state of things has yet come, or that it will cer tainly come. Hut we do say that it is threatened. We do say tiiat causes aud conditions in our social and political rela tions arc now at work which, unless effec tually atid speedily removed, will inevitably plunge ns into all, and more than all, the trouble we are rather deprecating than pre dicting. And now let us ask—From what docs it all come? To w!mt are we to trace the fever ish state of the public pulse and that gtad unl but obvious decline of confidence in af fairs,which is now witnessed iu the Stock Board, whispered on‘Change, and felt and acknowledged in all the avenues and de partments of trade, labor, and enterprise? To nothing, certainly, but the continued agi tation of the negro question—formerly to emancipate him, and now to elevate him to social and civil equality with the whites.— This pernicious controversy has long divi ded the country against itself, ami seems destined to divide it indefinitely.

Sait in Fattening Swinf.. — A correspon dent states some interesting experiments to test (he use of salt in fattening swine.— He selected two pair of barrow hogs weigh ing one hundred pounds each. One pair received with their daily allowance of feed two ounces so salt, the other pair sitrilurly fed, none. In the course of a week, it was easily seen that the salted pair had a much stronger appetite titan the others, ami atter a fortnight, it was increased to two ounces each. Alter four months, the weight ol the salted hogs was three hundred and fifty pounds each, while that of the unsalted, five weeks later, reached only three hundred pounds. The experiment was repealed with almost the same result.
