led. from to the crest of the rock,
until I.came opposite the'old castle, .1 bent
my steps in.that direction, and soon found
myself groping my way amid a labyrinth
of broken arches and filthy columns which
covered a little plateau of level ground on
the eastern side of the castle, and between
it and the inaccessible cliff Of bare rugged
rock which ,rose• in' frowning. grandeur
1 1 many hundred feet abevp, my. head.
After threading •my way amid the an
cient rairia,and narrow intricate paths
choked up with 'branlbles, for nearly on
hour, I suddenly turned an abrupt angle
of a lofty arch, the stone work of which
watrenti rely hid by a•perfect. mat of creep
ing vines.; and a fc*,paVps in , front I dis
covered what I at, first took for another and
Much smaller arch .than the ono I had just
,passed, but Which I..obis'erved ,opened out
or enlarged within, forming a • spacious
grotto, the walls of which, like those of the
arch I had just left behind, were complete
ly festooned with ivy and other parasitical
plants. A moment's inspection as .1 ap
-preached the entrance, served to convince
mo that what l had taken for an arch, was
in fact a natural cavern, formed by the
'hand 9f nature in the .sojid masonry of the
eternal rock. .
• As I stepped within the entrance of'the
deornychambert.a humaw:yoice,, uttering
a low monotonous Chant,• fell . upon my
ear,•my % curiosity, and hurrying forward
until 1 had passed a sharp projecting ledge
of Jocks; a scene met my gaze which
chilled the warm current of my lifeblood,
and for several minutes held me as; if in
the strong grasp of enchantment.
. - Within the dark recesses. of the cavern,
not fifty feet distant; I beheld a wrinkled
hag ; the very picture of one of the witches
in Madbeth, bolding in. her left hand a hu
man skull; from the eyes of
ed. forth'. two .bluish, flames ,that tit up the
surronnding . .. gloom ': with a- 'dim, sickly
glare, while in her left hand she grasped
a long slender staff, with which she con
tinued to stir the .contents er a huge caul
dron placed upon three other skulls over
a fire,. which, at 'intervals, a • mis-shaperi
dwarf continued to feed with some resin
ous wood or gum; that gave forth a strong,
unpleasant'odor that was almost stifling
in its effects, even at the distance at which
1 stood froM the fire. i
Whetfl first discoyared the hag,a dense
vapor was Tolling up from the lire, ivhieli
hid all •beyonihin an unpenetrahle shroud ;
but atter a few moments 'it rolled- gradn
nlly:away, and there on the opposite sit?o
of the cauldron from the witch, 1 beheld
the dark form of the black warrior of the
Ebro:— The . eseiwer Re.•

A superstitious. I dread of :something, I
knew - not whnt,.began to creep over me ;
land I stood spell-bound, guiiirj Ditch - lately
from the mysterious being whom I almost
helicVect - to be the Arch-fiend himself, to
the withered old hag there with her boll
irg cauldron, blazing skull, and: witch-like
expression of
,countenance,. until every
fibre rind nervo - of my frame quivered with
intense excitement and awe of some dread
! ful doom which seemed like the sword of ,
Dainoeles 'suspended by a single . hair a- '
I hove my devoted head. '
By - a powerful mental effort, I rallied
.my. fast sinking energies, and was just
about to tarn and . leave the unhallowed
"presence, when my gyro fell Upon some ob

Was streaming, - I recognised in a moment ,
my poor unhappy. friend- 7 -Henry Gran

In a moment my:superstitious- fear was
gone; and' springing forward 1. grasped
the dernon, or whatever he was,by • the
throat,And dealt hint a blow the

hina several .paces backward, when he fell
to the ground as though ho had been shot ;
and then snatching up the body of 'my
friend, I turned to leave the - cavern.
But ore I had threaded half the distance
to the entrance, my . footsteps were arrest

in my path, and ilirustin'g her horrid lump

When Henry Granger awoke from' his,
long sleep, it was more than two:lours
past midnight, and ns he exhibited no lin
gering symtoms of insanity, and appeared
much mors, reudy• to converse than . I had
ever before seen him, I ventured to enquir6
of him how it. had happened • that I bad.

his enemy and the old witch. In reply td
