THE MOUNTAIN OF TIIE.LOVERO.•
We forget in what book it was, many
years ago, that we read the story of a lov
er who was to win his mistress by ca?ry•
ing her to the top of a mountain, and how
he dui win her, and how they ended their
days on the same spot.

' back, apart and sullen, repenting that he
had subjected his daughter even to the
show of such a hazard; Wt he thoUght it
would teach his inferiors a lesson.
The young man, (t tie son of a small land

she thought him in every respect the no=

fears came over he , nevertheless. She
knew not what might happen in the chan
cesl common to all. She felt the bi terness
of being•herself the burden to him rid the
task; and dared neither to look ca l her , fa

now on the crowd (which never tbn ess she
saw mit) and now on her baud nd her

twice a daughter or a mother slipped out
of the crowd, and coming up, to her, not.

kissed that hand which she,knewhot what

The father said, " Now; sit! pat an end

Another shout from the 'Men, and he re

They are certain the lady 'kisses him on
the forehead and on the eyes. The women
burst into tears, and the stoutest men look
pale. He ascends slower than ever, but
seeming to be more Imre. He halts, but
it is only to plant his foot to go on again;
and thus lie picks his way, planting his
foot at every step, and then gaining ground
with an effort. The lady lifts up her arms,
as if to lighten him. See—he is almost
at the top; he stops, hestruggles, he
moves sideways, taking very little steps,
and bringing one foot every time close
to the other.
Now—he is all but on the top; he halts
again; he is fixed; he staggers. A groan
goes through the multitude. Suddenly,
be turns full front towards the top; it is
luckily almost a level, he staggers, but it
is forward!—Ye-! every limb in the multi

The baron put spurs to his horse, the
crowd' following him. Half way, he is
obliged to dismount; they ascend the rest
~f the hill together, the crowd silent and
happy, the baron ready to burst with
shame and irtipatience. They reach the
top. The lovers are face to face on 'the
ground, the lady clasping hi - n with both
arms, his lying on each side.
"Traitor!" exclaimed the baron, " thou
hest practised this feat before on purpose
to de:ceive me. 'Arise!"
"You cannot expect it., sir," said a wor
thy man, who was rich enough to speak
his mind; "Sampson himself might take
his rest after such a deed."
" Part them!' said the baron.
Several persons Went up, not to part
them, but to congratulate and keep them
together. These people look close; they
kneel down; they bend an ear; they bury
their facei upon them. "God forbid they
should ever be parted more," said a vene ,
table man; " they can never be." He
turned hi-1 old face, streaming with tears,
and looked up at the baron:—" Sir, they

dons, • the daughter of a farmer in j their
neighborheod, had formed an acquaietance
with a yoUth of wild , and dissolute habits,
and her parents, inconsequence, forbade
him the house, and exerted themselves to
sever the connection by providing " Miss
Julia Maria" with. a steady, middle aged
husband. The 'quire having performed
the ceremony, "the happy couple" set off
for their home on the borders of the great
prairie, andefor six months the lady ap
peared perfectly reconciled toiler lot, dad
exerted herself to love, honour, and obey
her liege lord. One morning, as the ter
mer was returning home with his tide and
dogs, he met his former rival, who accoun
ted for his sudden appearance by saying
that he had just returned from New Or
leans, where he bad made a rare specula
tion.in Texan lands, and that it was his
intention to emigrate to this new country,
sawnn as. he had 'completed some family
arrangements. The unsuspicious husband
invited his friend to pass a day or two with
him, saying, that
.although he should be
obliged to go to Lakeville the next day,
he other could amuse himself until his re-
turn by shouting the prairie hens, or fenc
ing in a patch of corn, which ever he
pleased. The other consented, and re
turned to the house with the hospitable
&inter. The next day, the young man
renewed. his intimacy with ins • former
sweetheart, and finally succeeded in ex
acting a promise- that she would, the next
morning, run away with him. The bus.
band, in the meantime, had gone on a tour
to the prairie, in search of game, and was
not expected to return for several days.
He had his misgivings, however, and re
turning home late at night, he was a hor
rified witness of tie own dishonor. With
out attempting to disturb •the guilty pair,
he fired his house in three different places,
.the flames creeping through the upper
stories, and encircling the roof of his once
happy home. The wretched woman and
her paramour were aroused from their
dreams by the flames, and rushed to the
window to save themselves by leaping out;
but below - stood the infuriated husband
with' -his rifle, and the moment the case
ment was opened he fired with unerring
aim, and they both fell amid the burning

Coal Trasle.—W e 'regret to say, that
the coal busibess continues to beika very
depressed state. The: demand forlcoal is
at present very limited, and how Ichig this
will continue so, it is not easy to foresee.
The principal immediatecluses which has,
prbduced this state of things, is the gene
ral-depression in all other kinds of business
throughout the country. There is such
u connexion among the various branches
of commercial operations, that there is a
reniprocal action and re-action always in
progress, an.l hence when one branch is
injuriously affected, all the other branches
participate to a greater or less extent in
the injury. It follows, therefore, thee we
cannot expect' the coal trade to floOri'nh
when almost every other species of busi
ness languishes. The quantity of anthra
coal sent to niarkee, up to the pesent
time, this season, from the several regions
in this state, amounts to about 67,000
tons. The quantity up to the same period
last year, amounted to 132,534 tons:—
shewing a difference of 65,000 tons.
The actual falling off in shipments this
year, therefore, is this difference—which
would have been still greater, but for the
panic which prevailed for several weeks
last year, in Consequence of :he suspension
of specie payments by. the banks, a course
to which they were driven by the acts of
the general government. Had there been
no interruption in the general business of
the country, nearly all the coal sent down
last year would have been consumed; the
over stock, or surplus on hand, would have
been but small, the demand would now
have been brisk, and miners, boatmen,
mechanics and labourers, connected with
the trade, would have bad plenty of em
ployment and good wages. if a state of
general prosperity should again revive in
our country,-the prosperity of the coal
trade will revive with it an&to the acme
extent. The .prospect of this - revival ap
pears to be brightening rapidly, but under
the most propitious concurrence o f politi
cal or .other events, which can be imagi
ned or predicted with probability, a consi
derable period will be required to set
things completely to rights again. The
demand for coat depends upon the cog
gumption of the article; and this consump
tion takes place chiefly in manufacturing
and domestic uses., The stock on hand,
of course, influences the demand, but the
amount of that stock is regulated by the
amount of consumption. From our know. .
ledge of the stock on hand, the probable
amount of shipments and the ratio of con
sumption, shobld the business continue in
its present depressed state much longer, we
draw the inference that the supply this sea
son will prove short.
• While the contest was at its height re
specting the Ofterman Coal Company,
amongst other rumors afloat there was one ,
which appeared in our paper, charging
Messrs. Stockton dc Stevens; of New Jer
sey, with being parties interested in the
(Merman Coal Company Bill. This state
ment, we believe, was incorrect; these
gentlemen, we have long since understood,
having no interest direct or indirect there
in or connexion therewith. Since this
period, they have, through their agents,
commenced mining operations in our re
gion on an extensive scale. Their princi
