heavy pitman, and cumbrous saw-trame. Those

lessly kneeling upon one of the float•boards of the
wheel, withozit observing the position of the Crank,
I proceeded to survey the nature of the derange
ment. While thus occupied, I did not observe the
alight motion towards • revolution which haileom
meneed by the wheel, capsed by my weight, and
my attention was first called to the nature of my
situation by r slow heavy pressure above my knee.
At a glance I comprehended the Igieril that I was in
and Made an effort to extricate myself. but I was
too late : I was fast wedged between the floats of
the wheel and the dill of the flume.
With considerable alarm I now observed that the
crank of the wheel was turned up, and that my
weight had slightly moved it from the perpendieu
lar. A moment's reflection increased my alarm,
as I fully comprehended that the heavy pitman
and the saw frame above that, were pressing with
their combined weight upon the crank.
To complete the horror of my situation, I per
ceived that the crank was moving almost imper
ceptibly, and I knew that without instant relict I
should inevitably be crushed to death between the
wheel and the flume. I gazed around and called
kindly for help; but no human being was near . ;
aml no answer was git en to my cries. My eyes
fell again upon the crank ; itiwas still moving and
drawing me into the awful death. .1 now looked
around for acme object to interpose between the
wheel and the flume, and saw an axe that I had
brought with me lying at one end of the wheel;
but the joy that was lit up within me by the sight

then tried to wrench something from the Wheel,

with sort of impious alacrity, from the Almighty to
a noite on a bridge that crowed the stream below

cognimii the sound to be that of a horse's tread.—
After crossing the bridge the horse commenced a
slow trot, end t knew there most be a rider upon
him althotagh the bushes on the roadside prevent

opposite the mill, I halloed, as I supposed, loud
enough to be heard forty times the distance to the
road; but owing to exhaustion my voice could not
have reached far, for the horse did not stop. Snit
the sound moved on, and as I fell back, in utter
despair apart the wheel, it seemed to me that the
horse and its rider, in 'that steady tramp—tramp—
were barbarously treading upon my beast.
This disappointment was so great that, for a while ,
I settled into a partial onaincionsnes.s. A scceak

A traveller from journeying
In e,oontries far away,

Again is rcice was heard.
