The Hermit of-Cripplepte.
[CO:MIMED FROM FIRST PAGE.]
and aged man.,who saying little push
ed his way into the room next Virelby's
study. Having arrived there, follow.
9d by Elizabeth, who.londly protested
against the outrage, he said in a faint
voice to4he latter :
" Tell your master that an old man,
broken down by fate—one who has
not long to live, is here to Crave—hum
bly and to crave a brief interview.l I
am ruined, grievously worn by sick
ness, sin-laden, bruised by the blows of
a revenging conscience, but penitent.
Tellhim - this. Thou, 0 God !" con
tinued he lifting his dim eyes heaven
ward, wilt not despise a broken and
contrite heart. Vouchsafe. I beseech-
Thee, some portion of thy pardoning
spirit to my brother. He ,is here, I
know. I have trodden many a weary. ,
pilgrimage to find him. My brother,
0 my brother !"
The unusual bustle so near at hand,
drew Welby from his books. He
arose, took his station at—the interpos
ing, door, and listened. The word
',tether" emote on his ear, and there
wakinlenee for a time.. What passed
fine mind of the recluse, during that
trying interval—what struggles with
the remembrance of his oath—what
heart-throbs at thinking he was so close
to the author of all his long agony—to
the man from whom he had hidden
himself in horror nearly half a century
—the brother who had blighted his
life, and cast him into a living grave,
cannot .) , be known. Elizabeth was
sorely perplexed, not knowing holy to
act in so unlooked for an extremity.
In a little while, however, the stu
dy door was slowly opened, and for
the first time during four and forty
years, Welby stood in view before two
of his fellow creatures. Gaunt, white,.
shivering and amazed, he seemed like
Lazarus coming forth from his tomb.—
His lips moved as if in the act of speak
ing; but sound there was none, though
his beard shook with the convulsive
movement of his chin. And so he re
mained, as one in a trance, over against
his strange visitor, who after gazing at
the apparition before him, looked with
an, enquiring, and bewildered ex
pression at Elizabeth, as if saying,
Surely this cannot be he !" But the
stranger spakd no at the moment.—
Neither he nor Welby knew each oth
er; but stood mutely opposed like si
lent shapes in a dream.
At length Welby's tongue foUnd ut
terances " Some one," he gasped,
" uttered thtLname of brother. Dids't
thou?" he added, addressing the intru
der. " What art thou ?—Support me
with thy . arm, Elizabeth. I . cannot
feel my feet on the floor, and I may
fall.. Now speak, friend—what meant
that word, brother ?"
The voice was instantly recognized,
though Welby himself was so piteous
ly transformed—stooping, moieovir,
under the weight of eighty-four years.
" I am Basil—Basil Welby," the
intruder ejaculated. " 0 Henry, wilt
thou not forgive me ? I faint—l die!
Forgiveness, 0 forgiveness!"
The shock was too great for our mel
ancholy recluse. The torturing image,
which had dwelt in his thoughts •for
four and forty years, was once more
invested with flesh and blood. But
how different did this miserable broth
er now look ! , The meeting was too
much for Welby, especially at his
great age, and he sank on the floor.
Elizabeth stooped over him, threw
the long grey hairs aside from his face,
and bathed his temples with cold wa
ter. Alas. her care was of no avail !
Welby's hour had come.
" Lift me up a little," he murmured,
"-that I may behold him once again.—
Look at me, Basil. Thou seest before
the little else than the shade of Henry
Welby. Lo, lam dying! Stoop thy
head, brother, is my hand. It shall
not lie heavily on - thee. There—all
has passed away. The dismal thing
is gone. • May Heaven bless thee !
Examine my papers. 0 Basil, Basil !"
The few words fol lowed by a long
drawn sigh, when V elby's bead sank
on his breast ; he was too weak to fight
with death : and after one or two faint
struggles, the stricken= recluse was at
peace for ever.
By a will found' after his decease,
his property was . bequeathed to the
son of his brother, provided any such
person should be in existence ; other
wise it was to descend to the children
of Lady Hilliard. Basil, it appeared,
had married late in life; his only •off
spring, Henry, had long shared his
father's poverty, though not without
laudable efforts to relieve it. Basil
himself did not live long after hi;broth
er, and his son, well husbanding , what
he had inherited from his uncle, be
came in time ,wealthy enough to pur
chase the ancestral acres 10.inscumbe.

Manufutst of Cider.
If any cider is wholesome, that which
is made right is :.most so ; and both as a .
matter health and. pecuniary profit,
that which is of good quality, is most to
be desired. There is :to difficulty in
making cider of such a - quality that it will
command from three to four dollars per
barrel, by the quantity. The expense
is but little more than is incurred in the
dirty and slovenly mode of making the
miserable stuff which generally passes
by the name of cider.
Cool weather is necessary for making
good cider, and the quality of the liquor
is improved by letting the pomieci lie as
long before it is pressed, as can be done
There is a great difference lathe qua
lity of apples. Those should be chosen
for cider, which yield the richest juice, ,
though the quantity is usually less in
those of this character, than in others.
The apples should be ripe when ground
but not rotten, and care should be taken
to put those Which ripen about the same
time, into tire, same pressing.
In the management of the liquor, the
first and grand object should be free from
all sediment. When this is properly
done in the beginning, it will be easy to
regulate the fermentation afterward.—
The best mode which we have ever
known practised, is to pass the cider, as
soon as it comes from the press, through
sand and charcoal. Clean river sand,
rather coarse, is best. For only a mod
erate quantity, a large tub or vat, may be
used. Put in the sand and coal in alter
nate layers : having the coal in pieces of
half an inch to an inch square. Lay a
piece of flannel over the top, and turn on
the cider as it comes from the press, as
fast as it will run through. The' flannel
will catch much of the potpie's, &c.,
which will after a while so fill the flan
nel as to render it necessary to remove
the cloth, and wash it or substitute ano
ther in its place.
If the filtration is well done, the cider
will appear perfectly pure as it runs froth
the sand, Pad should be at once put into
casks and deposited in the cellar. After
the casks are placed, the bungs should
be taken out, till the fermentation will be
stimewhat retarded, and its activity much
lessened, in consequence of the filtration.
The casks should be kept entirely filled
during fermentation, that the froth or
scum may work out. As the fermenta
,the bungs may be driven
tightly. The cider will sometimes keep
well without farther attention, for years;
but in general, it is better to rack it off
into casks in the latter part of the winter.
There will be found only a small por
tion of dregs in each cask, but in rack
ing, care should be_ taken that none of
the sediment runs off with the pure ci
der. If the casks are sound and good,
and are kept a gcod cellar, the cide
will keep a long time without changing((,
If it is wanted for battling, it will an
swel well for this purpose, when mana
ged in the way described, the following
May or June, from the time it is made.
The casks for keeping cider should be
made of the beet of oak, well bound, and
must be perfectly sweet. The cellar
for storing, should be cool and dark.—
The temperature should be at all times
as nearly as possible the same, in order
that the cider may remain in the same
State. The exclusion of light k is neces
sory for the same reason, as the tenden
cy of light is to produce decomposition.
Different substances have been recom-
Funded to be put into casks with cider.
Salt, chi, alum, mustard seed, fresh
meat, eggs, and a hundred other things
have been tried. We have at different
times seen cider in .which many of these
things were used, but never yet Saw that
which was as good as 'that made in a
proper manner wffibout anything t being
added. Most of the articles- tend to
deaden the cider, and lessen its most es
sential qualities. Made as we have re
commended, it is free from the syruppy
taste of new or sweet cider,' is spirited
and lively, with a fine rich vinous flavor.
'To cleanse musty and foul casks—
If due care was always taken, casks
would never get musty. As soon as the
cider is out of a cask, it should be rinsed
out thoroughly, dried, and then bunged
tightly. But if from negligence, a cask
becomes musty, the , best way, as far as
we know, to cleanse it, is to put in a
quantity of unslacked lime, and pour
boiling water on till iE becomes thorough
ly slacked. Put in the bung, and shake,
the cask about so that the water and
lime may come in contact with every
part. Let it stand six or eight hours—
empty it out—smell of the cask—if it is
then musty, repeat the process, and af
ter having again emptied out the lime,
- burn a ; strip of cloth dipped in melted
brimstone, in the cask, fastening it by
the bung. It must be a very bad smel
ling cask that will not be rendered sweet
by this mode.—.Blbany Cultivator.
