From the Fallimore. Sun
In good old times, there lived a duke and
duchess of Normandy—the one brave and
generous, the other?good and beautiful, who
held their court within the-walls of Rouen..
They had fetes and galas every day; the
neighboring baron's, and Still more the vasl
- failed not to admire the happiness of
the august couple. When alone, however,
and in the solitude of their the
noble cobple were not happy: for they were
childless!, In vain the Churches overflowed
with their gifts; in vain from all parts the
pilgrims and monks came to sell their pray
ers; nothing caused c.elestial grace to des
cend oh their Oniony niiie days
devotions, aims and ether good Works were:
equally barren. Already die moons of love i
had fled with youth; already ripe age growl- j
ed forth its first threatenings of torpor; eigh-:
teen years had rolled round since their mar -1
riage; eighteen years and no heir yeti j
, One day the d.nke sought to banish, his
chagrin in the chase. Lost In the depths of i
the soul murmured against the de- j
crecs of God; T see well,’’ said he, ‘God'
loves me not,'he' is deafto my vows, he des-1
pises my; good Works and my payers, 1 1
have uselessly solicited the-: intercession of;
the saints; none of tlicth hear me, hone plend
my cause before; God!- left me
but to address iliysulf to the Devil*’?
At this: word the good nobleman trembled;
he crossed himself devoutly,, and, tortured
with remorse/ he tried fo driVe far from him
this unholy thought; but lie could not sue-j
need; once entered into his mind, it clung’
there ; it beset him without ceasing, and on •
his return to the' feudal' tnnlisioli it wcnt
w ith him. ttis distress was so great that the
duchess;remarked it ; she qustioned him so
closely that he avowed the infernal tempta
tion. Now, instead of being frightened in
her.turn, instead of having recourse to;her
rosity or invoking her guardian angel, the
imprudent duchess, who was 'dying with
anxiety to become a mother, immediate!v
criedv 'Ah, well,, let be sol Since God a
bandons us. let the Devil cotne to obr aidi-
Let the child be born, and. the Devil may
do'with, him afterwards as lie pleases!’
-lif about nine months the Child Was burn,
butsoinesignsnotequivocal of-reprobation
accompanied this much desired birth: At
first the duchess.had felt, within lier'n strange
fire, as though all hell brooded in her bosom..
Then the day of the birth all natu re appear

In fact; the- little Robert showed Tiimself
mote arid more the Devil as he grew. t)f a
remarkable strength for his years, and provi
ded With teeth from his birth, he bit and. so
ill-treated Ink ntlrsc that they were obliged
to make hiift Stick With a'long tube, arid be
Served by strorig men-. When they l walked
with him,in the streets; he escaped from the
hands lof. the squires and varlcts to throw
himself on tile elut'dren Vif his age, whom, lie
pursued with such good blows With his fist;
feet and stones, that soon none dared to en-.
counter him, and the cry of ’save who can,
hev-c coriiris Robert l the. Devil, 1 preceded his
steps.. 11l weeds grow apace, says'the pro-,
ycrb’tand wickedness also. The poor moth
er wept bitterly over the perverse inclina
tions of her son ; she imposed upon herself
rude penance to obtain from God grace for
this qursed. child, but she uohgf to see, that
her impious vow had been heard on high;
she ought to be One of the first to suffer for,
this son so dearly bought. Robert was not
ten years old when his mother dare riot ap
proach him; one year after, a murder was al
ready placed between Heaven and him: in
an. excess of fury :he had struck with his
dagger and extended dead at his feet the
venerable priest who superintended bis edu
cation ' , - ,
When life had attained the age of man
hood, they hoped that the generous spirit of
chivalry would subdue this atrocious'charac-*
ter. His Father resolved in consequence to
make him pronounce his vows and put oh
.thcgql(len_.spuclu-presence, ofalithe. barons
of the country. ' He htinounced solemn
jousts, and invited the ' most noble ladies of
France and Normandy to command preside
at these fetes, pfMioncr'and beauty. - Uut
Robert showed himself no less irreverent to-'
wards them than towards his father and the
holy order of chivalry: he lenthimself with a
bad grace,-and with disdain, to the different
fornialities of his reception; in short," in the
tournament of.which he was the challenger
he would not take the - tqlors-of any lady.—
Always glooitiy and ferocious in the hiidstof
the lists, he defied" by turns the" most valiant
champions, not in courteous combat, but to
the utmost-rigoiygranting no mercy whcn lic
threw them in the.duStrin spite orth'e' pfay
ers of many sensible ladies who tried vainly
to save the life of, the chevaliers. To com
plete the scandal, when he had killcd'mnny
young and . gallant chevaliers; he stripped
himsclfof those ensigns of chivalry so recent
ly obtaihed and so crdell v paid for, he strip
ped them oft', and trampling them under his
feet, he broke a passage through the dismay
ed crowd;’then, ns if to insult still farther
the noble re-union, he put himself at the
head of a troop of vagabond outcasts, and
went with them to infest the highways and
scour the country
Thus descending voluntary from the cha
: racter of a prince to that of a brigrand,.thc
young Robejt delighted in committing tjie
• greatest crimes. He way-laid, on their re-,
turn from Rouen, those proud lords who
had come to assist at the fete of his father,
and perhaps to enchain him'; he awaited them
at the border of a forest, but it was to mas
sacre tlieir escorts and,outrage them.' Here
a castle is-reduced to ashes, there a holy
| churcli is'profiined; every where in the henu-
I tiful dtichy of Normandy the name of Robert
; the Devil is synonymous witlrmurder; sa
■ crilegb and violence.
j One day he overtook- in the forest seven
I poor pilgrims. Without respect to their
: stalls or habits, he ran, to them; ‘You arc
; saints,’he said to them ; *ah, well rejoice,
f for-I am going to makc martyr's of you I’ and
he alew.theui nil.- . ,
I_. : But. 'harrilV-Lwas-this’ mUrder'-bUhiimtled

gan to be horror-struck., What is lie in fact P
lAn object of horror and dismay to all the
“cqltntry; at sightofhim populations tremble,
i life churches are . Ilirhßelf does
nqt-inspire more dismay; -Astonished' by
thisremorse, Sohew to-him, he- tried to es
cape from it by-flying to some crimes: he ur
ged his horse across the plain to seek some
l -fresh occasions for murder and violence, and
|he learned from a shepherd,'near the envi-
J rons'of the chateau d’Arques, that a great
ladywas coming there in a noble pomp. To
gallop to: tlie chatehtiyto attack it, to kill the
sentinels and to rushj sWord in hand; into the
apartments, is to Robert the work of ' a mo
ment. Tlie lady whom he sought, fell bn
her kneeS at his approach; she wept, she
prayed, and Robert, on arriving close, to her,
Heard Jj'er ci-y ‘My God! I am justly slain by

ter this act of severe justice, which spared
the executioner tliat busincss, Robert made
the first sign of the cross that he had ever
attempted; then he started for Rome to de
mand of the holy father absolution of all his
crimes. ....
'..Living oil alms.' sleeping on Hie earthy
fasting and incessantly praying, he crossed
France, tile Alps, anil the plains of Itly,'and
on Ash Wednesday he entered the capital of
Christendom. The day, was suitable fora
confession. Robert presented himseif.before
the Pope, t ‘Who art thou?’ demanded'the
Pontiff. .‘The greatest of sinners, replied
the pilgr'dti. ‘Oh! holy Father, have pity on
me; impose on rno vdiat penance you please
■ —dispose'of my life, but have pity! You
see at yourknees Robert the Devil.’ At
this redoubtable name, facing this accurs
ed one? whose horrible rertown had so often
frightened the chiiyel\ provoked the; ana
themas of the ludy , clioirj thlj"gfi6nPope
trembled; and at first could nofhelp shelving
a little' fear, but the wicked man was now
kiieelifig liumbly, and his, much dreaded arm
had no ather, weapon than a rosary; instead
of armour, a pilgrim’s- tobe, soiled and
covered with dust, was wrappeed around
that body, stained by so may murders and
acts of violence. The Pope soon recovered
his majestyj. he ordered ‘his guards to
withdraw', and-fill! of confidenceln God, he
feared not to remain alone with Robcfl While
he made, his confesion.
This confession was so dreadful, that-the
Pope .dared not take on himself immediatel y
to aosolve the author oi
‘Go‘? said, he; go my son, find at Jlloiitalto,
some league! from here towards the moun
tain, a holy hermit, confessor to myself; re
peat to him who thou has confided to me; we
will both pray to God for, and he will show
us upon what to decide.’ ' *
Robert immediately started, and at night
hc-arriyed at the cell of the hermit, who was
no less frightened, by the narration of crimes
than the Pope. He passed the whole night in
prayer with the repenting pilgrim. Towards
morning, as his eyes, yielding to fatigue, be
gan to gl nW heavy, he saw suddyuly abright
light fill, his dark cell; •an angel .appeared,
who in a sweet voice said*/‘God does not
refuse the penitent sinner, but he
must purchase" it by penance! Fix one on
Robert which will be in proportion to his of
fences!’ At these words the agcl disap-;
peered, the cell again obscure, but
doubt had quitted the mind of the hermit’;
he recovered from his- pious ecstacy, and
made a sigh, to Robert to kneel before him.
.Heaven, by my voice, promises thee reinia,-
sdon of all thy crimes; pride and debauchery
have been the-prihcipal.; it is then by humil
ling and mortifying these senses that thou
canst merit jiardon. Renounce thy rank and
its prerogatives. Eveitlhis pilgrim’s habit is
too good for thee. Quit it, clothe thyself
with rags of'misery; be deaf and dumb.—
Thou art- unworthy to sleep under the roof
of men; thou must seek thy bed among the

price-thou-canst at some day obtain absolu

. ‘God be praised. ’ .said .-Robert; ‘this pen
ance is lighter than’.l- deserve.; Be assured,
rily'-Father, that I will perforni it to the
very letter.’ And entering into Rome, the
heir of .the R.uke ofNdHhandy was deaf and
dumb, threw himsclfinto the'dirt and follow

knew not hoiv to write—in'that age, few did;
she had no means of making the truth known
to lifer father; she Wept, she prayed, she wished,
to die; but obedient as a worthy daughter of
a chivalrous age, she dared hot violate her
'father’s orders. ;A» a victim the
sacrifice,-she suffered herself to be conduct
ed to tbs temple,.where the Pope, himself .
waited to bless her marriage. The senes
chal was in the intoxication of triumph; all

all the imperial banner* of the holy empire
were lowered before the.future spouse oflaa
bel. Robert Wai there also, in his rags, but
in the eyes of'the princess, more beautiful in
his rags- than the seneschal under his mag

vocable sentence, when suddenly, by a mir
acle of divihfe goodness,lsabel recovered her
voice! ’Father, father,’ she cried,‘it wes
not the seneschal who saved Italy, it was
Robert!’ and she fell fainting at the feet of
the Pupa. Great was the confusion of the,
disconcerted seneschal, greater still that of
the Eniperor; in learning, that a poor dumb
creature had a right to the hand- of Isabel.—•
He made Robert approach. ‘Who art thoiif *
