the'present proprietor hi id given it the name of Use- I

mile, its top surmounted by the.turreted walls, from
.which the royal 'lag of charles floating in the breeze,
proclaimed the part, its owner now took in , the poli

The neighborhood of the castle, was infected with
a wild, lawless gang of c avaliers, who where stimula
tett only by hope of pl under, air! could shill their
fidelity and allegiance to King Charles, or the Pro
tector Cromwell. just as it suited their purposes. A
band of these worthies was now congregated at a

The captain of the hand of military marauders,
whose falcon gaze was preparing fur a swoop on the
rich possessions of the vacihaung Burney, was a
young man, who had been Matured in the neighbor

forth, and many believed him now, no better than a
common plunderer. Laurence himself, gilded his
occupation with the mime of loyalty, and white he
was planning the indiscriminate sacking of the castle,
tried to persuade the ste44llboring peasantry, that it
was to revenge the former misdeeds of the proprietor,

He felt.confident that his services to his .exiled soy

was to be seen a young Imiaale peasant, who on toe
outskirts of the marauder's encionpmegt, was endea
voring to pass them unobserved. Thiiiras no mu'
matter, but still with woman'seifiring pivenince,
she was striving to accomplitt her wish. This girl
wan Annie bestir, • the foster sister of Burney's
daughter; shehai.•••• \ discovered the rendezvous of
Brown, and fearing. tALhis intents were not pacific,
she now sought to convey intelligence to her friends.
"Where can Martin Cleavland be, I wonder,"
thought eas maiden, "were lilt here, all would be
well; I nuskioubt Laurence Brown, although he is a
comely youth, and there lies the old castle through
the trees, the setting . sun gilding its windows. Oh,
that I were the a itch, that Martin in his lo4e
speethes sometimes calls me, how quick would I gal

poor Caroline and her father—l would. —"
A rustling in the bushes attracted her attention,
and she was startled to observe another person ad
vancing towards her. It was a female of command
ing stature, but dressed in a commingled style of
penury and fantastic wildness; her g long locks of giey
were floating unconfined, and wreaths of ivy were
around her head. As she approached,
ulie recog
nized hem, in the now increasing gloom of efeeing
and exclaimed, •
“Ah ! 'us Mad Mabel !"
"Aye, Mad Mabel !" was the reply, "and why

parched, who has neither kith nor kin t oi- a place to

-Silence, Annie Lester ! a lie should never blister

bright glory, but the burnilig of his house will be
far more bright at the midnight hour!"
-Mabel ! Mabel !" cried Annie, .as the wretched
woman, turned with clenched and outstretched hands
towards t.!,e castle, and invoked curses on its own-.
t-r, "do not • for the sake of the mercy you ex

"Mercy ! ' sneeringly cried Mabel, "I expect mer

he gave my fair boy. to the gibbet! No—no--his
house must "burn—and yet it would almost break
my he:.rt w see the ruin of the place, in which my
days of innocence were passed, when he who lords
it now, ty.,s but the serv.ait of its master'"
why not warn Clem yourself of danger"
replied Annie quiAly.
"Me ! me ! g, near that man ! me, oh no ! they
know me too well, to let me approach those gate,,d
I could save—for I know that De 'Waldron has
procured the roundhead's' pardon—that lie will bring
it to-morrow—but Ralph Burney has made himself
a host of enemies—and they will hide their love of
plunder under the name of loyalty ;—they will not
wait the pardon. Let them know their danger—
his servants are not to be trusted ! I would not
raise a hand to save Ralph Burney's life, but I should
die to see the old castle fired !. Away then; he care
ful how you pass by Hetherwold. Heaven shield
thee girl !"
Thus saving, Mabel dashed into the wood, and
Annie cautiously proceeded towards the castle.
In the mean time the household, ignorant' of their
danger, were preparing for the coming night:. Ralph
Burney was seated, with his daughter by his side,
in one of the apartments, in which a wiudow opened
on a turret. Fire 'arms ; swords and other weapons
hung around tae Walls, showed the turbulent spirit
of the times, although at present it was presumed
that all was quiet.
“Nay, proceed—my father, - said Caroline, "I sin
all attention."
Burney contnted a conversation,, the previous
part of• which does not-concim onr narrative.. "It
is known to you, that Annie's father and rnyte s lf,
came to this country togethpr. He was humble in
,thought, and remained as he was born,—l was not
so. The old Proprietor of this castle was deeply in
v“lved. both in politics and debt. I was his servant,
and gre; so useful to him, in his necessities, that
acre by acre his possessions became mine." .4
"Bad he no children 'P t -asked the daughter, with
sympathy in her oice. . •
"One girl there was, whom all accounted his. hut
I will not believe she was his daughter," replied
Burney with a shudder, at which Caroline attempt
ed to turn the conversation. • . _
-.Talk ''of it no- more—let it: speak of —"
"Hark ! what noise was that !" said Ralph, inter
rupting her, and starting to his feet., At, the mo
ment, the window of the balcony opened, and An
nie entered the apartment, breathless with haste.-
Few words sufficed to tell the danger of their situa
uon, and the heroic girl, coimcelled, that one of the,
servants should be - despitchad to. hasten the arrival
of Dc Waldron, but inotaritly remembering the. Warnt
ing,..of.Mahel against their fidelity, she seized a tan
from the wainscot, and exaMined the priming—it
was as wet as the sands of the sea shore!
Thus surrounded by treachery and danger, Annie
resolved to undertake the mission herself, and inne
&Cutely left the castle •to accomplish it, loaded with
the prayers and blessings of Caroline and her father!
Nearly an hour elapsed, during which the inmates.
were in momeuta.ty danger of attack; but Laurence
Brown had , not yet received the pro-concerted signal
from the faithless servants.. At length, the low but
4m:l-casing murmur of distant voices was heard by
the' watchful Burney. Be Peered from the window,
througo the darkness—formk were visible slain the
castle Vigils and .he cried,
