elevated above the flood, and lite small,

on its destined prey. Each second
brought the fell monster nearer the

casionally open, displaying the shnrp,
double row id' glistening teeth w hich
armed them; then shut again with a
snap like tho music of distinct! ro
sounding through the stillness. Im

Huoud w ell knew ; but be lost no heart
nor hope. His nerves, steeled In
danger iu its most fearful shape dur
ing his recent trials did not fail hi in
now. Ho fell n deadly sickness at
heart, for nn instant, nt tho new and
hideous form of peril, thus suddenly
confronting him at tho very moment
of his fancied csctpo from all his dan
ger; just when ho was making bis
good resolves for a tranquil future.
Novcr before had ho encountered the
dread monster; but he knew ilsnaluro
and its bnbils well, fur ho had often
heard Arabs of the I'pper Nile tell of
their encounters with and victories
over it, nnd ho therefore understood
which way tho path of salety lay.
He nllowcd tho greedy monster to np
pronch within two lengths of him
simply floating hiinsell on tho sulfat e
of the water, w ilh a wary eyo fixed
on the movements of his adversary.

certain death. Ho wailed till bo

rible tail, nnd snapping its jawi fiercely
together, w hile its snaky eyo emitted

unth r tbo w ater, too, and tho moon,

snowing no form (if man or reptile on
its agitated surface. Hut the water
w here tbo crocodile hud sunk 'ns dis
with a dark red slain, whit h
showed that tbo Syrian's dagger had
found a vulnerable spot. Jlo hail
dived beneath the scaly armor which
I protected it from above nnd had struck
I an upw ard blow. Next moment Iho
j man rose again to the surface, twenty
yards lurtbcr down nt renin, and struck
out vigorously for the shore; but the

pressed tho opinion that llio act of

plain constitutional law of tho Slate,
and that every federal soldier and ev
ery deputy marshal who obstructs or
hinders tho polling of voles, or con
spires to do so, must bo ai rested, tried
nnd sentenced. In pursuance of this
opinion, it is stated that Governor
llolliuan will keep the Stalo militia
under arms, ready to resist any at
tempt mudo by federal bayonets to
enforco the law of Congress.
-This hns a bad appearance. It is
to bo deeply regretted that there
should bo a quest ion of right between
tbo Stale and tho federal government
lo bo settled more especially when
it appears probable that violence will I
occur before a settlement is reached.
Hut in our judgment tho case is a I rivMK Versailles in its memories of the

Wo shall have reached a pretty

Tho telegraph, with that cold pre

distinguishes Homo of its revolutions,
bus informed us of tho destruction of
tho Chateau of St. Cloud, that lovely
royal und imperial residenco which
for two hundred years, crowded with
i.:.. i i t.n ....:.).. ..i
historic glories, bus been tbo pride of
all tho western environs of l'aris
Moreover, wo are informed that the
work of ruin was accomplished by the
Trench and not by the German bat

illustration of history which has so

tho Grand Moniinpio bestowed this

and in succeeding years it witnessed

it lakes, its fountains nnd its cascades,

who went a Maying in its lawns nnd

ibis year bavo been replaced by a
more magnificent but disastrous Oc

desolated by tho bivouac of a heedless
foreign soldiery, and its superb saloons

ous wealth of canvas and carving,
have sunk into ruin beneath the aveng

Icaguered through the folly of its latest
imperial occupant. Tho fearful war
now raging "in iho heart of Europe"
is full of startling lessons illustrated
by what seems more than tho caprice
of more chance in tho scourge that it
brings upon the olden seals of refined
but arrogant pomp and power. None
of these is more instructive, even
while we must historically mourn it,
than the obliteration of St. Cloud.
