11W OF SHERWOOD FOREST.
- The sun was fast sinking in the embrace
'the western wave, -and the &Ade clouds
I night slowly spreading their gloom over
ant,' when an archer, clad, in Lincoln
L Men ' with a hem of silver suspended from
4 nec k, was seen to approach the eastern•
gist tsrret of Sherwood -Castle.
The form of the archer was eymmetri-
, nay, almost faultless; and -though in

-•r lifted the bugle to his tip,and blew a
blast; a fairform appeared at the window
of the turret, and a white silken scarf flut
tered in the air for a moment, and fell at
the feet of the archer. Few words _passed
between the lovers;-entreaty di, the part of
one, and a half yielding refusal on the part
of the, ether.
1041 e wind of this horn, fair lady, brings
threescore inchers to my call; twice blown,
ad a hundred answer unto my sumlnons.
All pursuit would be vain. Doubt, then,'
no more,, but away with me, love, and to
the merry green wood.'
The lady hesitated no longer, - Cut leap

be used •either as a window tir ad nit the
light and air,. or as a position of defence,-
was snob seated on a swift-footed ialfrey;
and with , one look to the home of her in
f incy, left it for a time, perhaps for ever.
The band that had been concealed beneath
time pusierin7 thorn bushes, from which,
is consequence of the color of their dress,
they could scarcely be distindiijshed, now
slowly disappeared, with the eirception of
a few who remained behind fot his lady's
escort. The deepening shades of the
night began to close round, and Elgitha
and her outlaw kver were te;itin lost to
sight in the &Tars of the forest

The butler, Ralph de Gurgh, Who had de.
lighted his heart with Burgundy the night
before, declared on his hopes of salvation,
that he saw his mistress leap from the
ea - item turrent into the arms of an angel
_who carried her off in a celestial light.—
The story, despite its improbability, gain
ed credence with the' vassals* and their
faces betokened' terror and dismay: The
warder ventured, in consequence of the red
nose of the relator, and hie well-know de:
votion of .the bottle, to disbelieve the whole
story, but was only pitied by Abe test fir
his incredulity. As for the ; baron, her
father, he was inconsolable,. The sudden
and-drysterious disappearance Of his child,
afVcted him visibly, and he pined away
gradually, yet surely, as doe 4 the oak of

Richard I. had returned front Palestine,
bringing with him, however, :but a small'
portion of the host he had 'mkt hither. The
plague had made sad havoc wi!th.the pride
of England. Many of those whom the
plague had spared, fell from theeffects - of
the burning heal, and • thirst a hilst the
major part of those who had escaped these
evils seemed spared that they might fell
before the lance of the Saracen.
On their arrival at home, CCeil r de Lion
found the affiirs of. his kingdom 'lb almost
'inextricable confusion. Ensurrections
were common In every pat; or the realm;

and vigorous manner as to present quali:
ties to our admiration, not only as a sol

Amongst other outlaws whdm the king's
absence had caused to rise and fl mrish,
Robin Hood, or the ' Archer Outlaw,' as
he was sometimes called, stood pre-emi

cross-bows, of immense strength, and pos

as to the manner in which it was obtained.
Richard set about theoatfer zealously,
and atter selecting the choicest of his
knights and bow-men, journeyed down to
Sherwood forest to find and if possible to
driye away,these - rude and hirdy outlaws.
This was more easily concef t ved th'an put
in execution; some time ha passed, and
Richard and his band had ilingered till

tracted his attention .; and he raised his head,
in ilme to behold 'an. arrow enter the body
or a buck,'which isles bou)tding lightly past
him at the distance of a few paces. The
noble animal gave a lesp r one bound, and
as the Wood gushed in torrent from his
breast, staggered and fell. F ill of rage
at this encroachment of his prerogative,

the aggressor, and he was accosted accor

t How, now, fellow, thirst ye- kill the
deer in the royal forest? By whose autho
rity d you act?' •
. ' By that of Robin Hood, the merry
monarch of thi green wood,' replied the
varlet, as he restrung his bow.
Richard would have seized the outlaw,
but he, as if aware of the prodigious
sin ' cf" his antagonist,. eluded the
grasp, fitted an arrow to his bow, and di
rected his aim at the monarch. Neither
the light breastplate of the king, nor the
steel-linked coat of mail which he had ha.
bititally worn, would have savea his life,
had not, at that moment, a tall figure
sprang furward, and dashed the half• bent

The new comer was also clad in a suit

he drew the bow and quiver from his back,
and gave them to the monarch.
The Lion Hearted was skilled in a • II the
warlike sports of the day, bul especially in
'that of archery. Fitting an 'arrow to the
bow be shot at a tivig of oak a great•dis•
tance off, -which the' arrow struck and
nailed to the trunk-of the tree. Elated at
his feat, he returned the weapon to the
archer, who smiled gravely, and placing
: aright he drew the string to the
length of the barb. The string gave a
shrill twang; and the arrow, whistling as
it flew, struck in the extremity of the pre
eeding 'one, which it split in fragments.
Richard was astonished at the skill shown
by the archer, and requested his name.
Tae :outlaw gave no reply, but lifting
his horn to his bps, blew a blast that soun
ded shrilly through the forest. Scarce
had the lingering echoes died upon the air
when a 'huffdred archers, arrayed in green

seen to gather round.

at the same time he waved his hand, and

a stationary engine of ninety horsa power,
capaLle of raising two hundred thousand
urns •per annum. These planes have been
in successful operation, tit intervals, during
.1834—'35 and '36. There
were 290 tons of coal- transported over
them at the opening of the rail road in the
Fall of 1834-6,200 tuns of coal and
493,705 feet of lumber in 1835—and 12,-
304 tons of coal and 405,0b0 feet of lum
ber,, and 1300 cross ties in 1836—and
there,,imight have been; a very large busi
ness done during the past year had the
Board been prepared with necessary funds
to prosecute it. I have very frequently been
asked, Con!d not these planes have been
avoided? 1 answer in the negative. '
From Mount Carbon to the summit,. the
di-tance is seven .and three quarter miles,
the height to
° be overcome is nine hundred
feet. Then taking Pouville as a starting
point, even if an uniform grade could have
been had,• a rail road thirty miles long
would 'have been necessary at a grade of
thirty feet per mile, or twenty two and a
i half miles long at a grade of forty feet per
mile, to overcome this elevation. • But it
is evident, that even with this great increase
of distance, an uniform grade of at le,ast
one hundred feel per mile would have been
necessarily encountered le any attempt to
'make a road to tb'e summit without planes.
On such a road, setting aside the increased
expense of making and• keeping up a road
of such increased length it is, o bvious that
horse power only could have been used on
it, and that house power would have done
but very little—fur although locomotive
engines can be used on such steep grades
With high steam, and in favorable states of
the rails, as a mailer of experiment, it is
certain that.they cannot be advantageously
employed at anytime, and cannot be used
at all when the rails are frosted or slightly
wet. These views go to show that the
planes could not have been dispensed with
on the east side of the mountain; it is a still
clearer point. that they could not have
• been decendirig from the summit to the
City Mines. Here, the . descent of 345
fectis effected with a single plane, by•an
engine, capable of raising 200,000 tons of
coal at at expenditure of less than $5OOO,
or under 21 cents per lon. It is obvious
that .if this decent had been effected by
graded road-of ten miles; or ra.fifteen miles
having a decent rif 23 feet per mile, at the
lowest rate of transportation on ascending
grades, the cost of this list on the graded
toad ascending from Girardavitle, MUM
have been at least ten times what it is on
These simple views go to show, that
whatever was to be the disadvantage of in
dincall planes on roads to accommodate
passengers, or where the elevation ia. not
too great to be overcome by tolerable
grades such a road was out of the question
across the Broad hlonntain, if there was
any intention of bringing coal from the
Girard mines to, the city; and the plan of
the road as it ia, , as leech the Lest, and in-
Jeed the only one thitt could have been
adopted acroos the'Broad Mountaip, that
would.havel,en worth any thing for trans
porting minerals or agricultural products.
The estimate annexed to this Report
shows, that for a trade of less than 200,-
000 tons, the cost of passing all the planes
will not exceed five cents per ton. So far
as travel isAoncerned, it is true these
planes constitute a hindrance; but it is to
