"It is of no usp, Evalefn for heaven'
sakp don't stand hesitating any longer,
wnne i am waiting in tne cold, i he roatl
is blocked up with snow, and the horses
will not and cannot drn the carriage any

tiently disengaged his little wife from the
buffalo robes in which she was wrapped,
and placing her upon tera firma, left her
standing upon a pile of snow drifts, where
like Noah's dove, she "found not a dry sjwt
for the sole of her foot."
They had halted before one of those rude
way houses so common in the northern for
ests of Pennsylvania. Upon the roof, and
above the eaves of the low wide piazza
running across its front, the snow was al
ready heaped in massess. and the unpainted
boards of its walls looked still blacker by
contrast. A door opening into an apart,
metit, half parlor, half bar-room, had been
thrown back, and the glare of a huge fire
that roared and crackled within, leapt out
into the dusky twilight. A group of men
in the rough attire of the forest blocked the
entrance, and there stood gazing at the
wearied travellers, now commentins in
suppressed tones upon the beauty of their
equipage, now reprimanding the snarling
hounds, that at every approach of the new-
iy arrived, bounded . lerociously forward.
Meantime themastrr of the carriage, moun
ted upon its steps, had with some difficulty
succeeded in arousing its remaining occu
pants. Three enormous dogs, bound together
by a leash, sleepily arose, and persuaded to
exchange their luxurious couch for the icv
bed beneath, slowly followed the servant to
whosi) care, they were entrusted. (Jims,
rifles, powder-horns and shot-bag?, ail lihi.
turn were next drawn forth until at last, ful
ly satisfied of the safety of his treasures,
their master turned his eyes upon the little
creature who stood shivering at his side.
Lifting her in his powerful arms, as if she
had bet-n an infant,- he bore her rapidly
through the storm into the apartment that
shall in courtesy be christened a pirlor, and
then, drawing toward the fire a sort of rude
lounging chair, placed her in it.
The hounds, freed from the lea,h. had
laid themselves upon the narrow strin of
carpet before the hearth, and Tynel, bend
ing down, talked to them in the quiet and
familiar tone with which one addresses a
rational kins. They were specimens of a
scarce and foreign breed, and the extreme

the nobler classes of the brute creation, the
indisputable warrant of natnre's aristocracy
drew trom him many an admiring look,
manv an enthusiastic commendation, une
crossed his feet as daintily as a lady ; one,
stretched at full length, liis muzzle resting
upon the floor, beat his leathery tail from
side to side as ho continued to hear the
sound of his master's voice, while a third,
with a single paw delicately folded beneath
his chest, his head majestically raised, his
round eyes fixed upon the flames, seemed
watching the red column of sparks that at
every fresh blast of wind rushed up the roar
ing chimney.
A few minutes had scarcely elapsed since
the entrance of the travellers, when a sound
of voices in earnest conversation issued
from a side room, and Tyrrel was presently
summoned to take part in the debate. He
returned with an impatient tread and a
clouded brow. The host had declared his
inability to accomodate the whole party,
and at a farm house three miles distant, the
loss nnd servants were to find shelter for
he night. This Tyrrel hastily explained
o his wife, a3he drew on his furred gloves
and buttones his overcoat more closely a-
out him. Iiuther ierror was extreme.
"Ah ! for heaven's sake, Tyrrel ! don't,
don't leave mo alone with these half sa
vages! Let Johnston take care ot the togs
You can trust him this once. Don't go, I
entreat you."
"1 must," said her husband, resolutely.
"I would rather fast until morning, or sleep
by the wayside, than know that either Czar
or Juan were suffering; and the servants
are too tired to do their duty unless my
eye is upon them. "Don't, hva," brushing
her hand from hisarm with an tnperious
jresture. .
"Let me go with you, then," she persis
ted. ,I will walk through the storm rather
than stay here. I am quite ready ; 1 shall
not detain you a moment."
"Nonsense! Jolly! remain wnere you
are. lOU WOUItlCOme Wltn Hie, nuu mum

"Ah. Tvrre . 1 shall lose my senses :
springing after him, as he walked toward
Ihputinr. .
"What will you have 1" he said, turn
inv with a movement of angry impatience ;
"shall I leave yon one of the dogsl shall I
unbuckle Czar 1"
She hesitated, remembering, poor little
thing, in what agony she had passed the
day with her proposed protector at her
feet, afraid to move, lest she should provoke
ono of those lion-like growls, or even a
more palpable evidence of displeasure. Hut
when, as though to decide the questiou, he
stretched his enormous limbs, and yawned,
displaying in that expression of ennui com
mon to man and beast, a set ot teetn, snarp
and glittering ai a wolf", ahe drew back
and shook her head despairingly. . 1 yrrel
gazed upon her with undisguised con
That with my peculiar tastes I should
have married so arrant a coward!" he said,
accompanying the eiaculjlioa by a disdain
tui eievauon to tne shoulders. Again De
prepared 10 leave tne house, and this time
Era lacked sufficient courage la detain
him.' . Relenting in a measure, however.
he turned back, and flinging wide m door
opening iuto the parlor, pointed to sleep:
insr apartment within. Kneeling he tore
the hearth, a woman beyond all description.
forbidding in appearance, endeavored with i
ner breath to Ian the smouldering embers
into a blaze but in vain. If a disconso
late little flame sprang tip for a moment,
the wet wood only hissed and sputtered
more uncomfortably, and the wind that
roared without' swept down the chimnev,
whirling the dust and ashes into her eyes,
and all over the ding)-, uncarpeted floor.
A cross look bestowed upon the intruders
was the only acknowledgement of their
presence, and Eva, sick at heart, turned a
way. "You see," said her husband, ashe closed
the door, "that in a few minutes your own
apartment will be ready, and to that, if you
wish, you can at any" time retreat." A
hoarse call from without, a hasty wave of
the hand, and he was gone.
Resuming her sent in the 4ounginr chair.
she gazed with a mixture ofdis?ust and ter
ror around the room of which she now sole
occupant. Only a stool, a few rude benches
a table covered with half emptied rrlasses.
a dark framed, greenish mirror, and a dirty
rag carpet, constituted its furniture. Rut
the warm blaze upon the hearth before her
presented a more cheerlul object of contem
plation. Into the chimney's flaming ca
vern the great trunk of a maple had been
thrown, and already its burning heart glow
ed with the intensity of molten iron, while
bright tongues of flame licked up the san
that yet bubbled from its extremities, or ran
like serpents through the cinders and under
thecurling bark. Silently marvelling at
the infatuation which could induce the
most fastidious and luxurious of men to ex
change the elegancies of home for the fa
tigue of a solitary hunt, and the discomforts
of the country through which they had
passed, she sank back, and with her "cheek
resting ujion her hand, her small feet cros
sed upon the hearth, abandoned herself lo
the vague reverie that so often and 80 de
liriously follows unwonted fatigue of mind
or body.
At first her train of thought, if thought
it could be called, was rather cheerful than
otherwise : but as the storm without redou
bled in violence, nnd the flames roared up
the chimney yet louder, and with a fearful
hollow sound, her fancies gradually took a
more sombre hue, and a nervousexcitement
which she felt beyond control, banished
the languid calm that had so pleasantly
succeeded her terror. Wiih veiled eyes
and a throbbing heart, she reclined, indul
ging in that species of self torture in which
we all, porhajis, at times find an unaccoun
table fascination.
Like one who in darkness watches the
she lay, with terrible scenes, each fast, fol
lowing it3 predecessor, flitting beneath the
shadow of her closed lids. In imagination,
already she heard the approaching foot of
her murderer, his step ujion the threshold,
his wary tread over the uncarpeted floor,
his pause beside her, his very breath, as it
played among the light curls upon her tem
ples. With a faint shriek she started up;
for a latch was indeed raised, and a door
the outer door flung ojien. Ere she had
resumed her seat, two rough backwoodmen
noiscly entered the room. Placing a flask
and glasses upon the table, they seated
themselves beside it.
Her eye rested for a moment ujion two
ofthe most repulsive countenance that she
had ever beheld, and then was instantly
averted. A few minutes more and she be-
came conscious that their glances were
stealthily turned upon herself. Then the
loud voices were suddenly lowered and
thej' conversed only in whispers.
A thousand horrible suspicious flashed a
cross her nund. Strange that in a house
of this character no accommodations could
be provided for their servants or the trusty
hounds. To what den of murder had they
been taken? How difficult in these inter
minable forests for the strong arm of justice
to reach an offender how easy ofperform
once the most lawless deed. She glanced
at the travelling cases, the elegant dressing
boxes now piled in a corner of the jiailor,
and shuddered at the temptation their con
tents might present to the necessitous or
vicious. And all this time the younger ot
the two men sat gazed stealthily upon her
If she started when his heavy hand fell
upon the table, he glanced significantly at
his companion ; if she moved, ho leaned
forward and watched her with a hardy and
impertinent curiosty. Once or twice he
rose, and, on pretence of wishing to warm
himself at the hre, passed so near ner as to
brush her arm, and then, standing with his
back turned to the blaze, gazed at her with
a half suppressed smile playimj around his
Unable to disguise her agitation, sho has
tily arose and approaching a window took
up a volume that lay beside it. It was the
"Pirate's Own Book," and she opened at a
villanous wood cut, a distorted scene of
mnrder and violence, that caused her to
close the volume and precipitately turn a-
way. She retreated to her bed room, but
the" dismal gusts of smoke and wind that
puffed from the fire-place drove her tnence
in despair. A small, rudely sketched map
of the country through which they were
travelling caught her eye as she again cros-
aed the parkland to this she turned, hop-

It was called the Shades of Death,"' then,
this wild region, with its eternal pine for
ests, its frowning, overhanging cras, its
paths of darkness and terror. Rut "little
had been wanting to fender her cbsperate,
and she Was now n ady to rush out into the
storm to follow her husband, no matter at
what peril, Turning to glance nt the clock
she raised her eyh glass, the Only nrticle of
value carried nboul her person, "and ns the
diamond initials wrought upon its golden
case glittered in the Maze, tho younger of
the men leaned eagerly forward, and in his
look she read a horrible confirmation of her
suspicious. Just then a Vehicle stopped
before the house, the hounds without re
commenced their 'yelping, a hasty step
sounded upon the piazza, nnd Tyrrel en
tered. When her senses again returned she found
herself upon a bed in the adjacent chamber
while her husband was bending over bath
ing hertemjdes. The gentletiss of his touch
the unwonted tenderness of his look & man
ner were inexpressibly soothing, nnd she
closed her eytv, willing to indulge for a
few moments longer in sensations so rare
and exquisite. But the remembrance of
the dangers surrounding them aroused her.
To spring to her feet, and, clinging to his
arm, tell the history of those hours of mi
sery she had passed during his absence,
was but the work of a few minutes. lie
only laughed nt her terrors. .
An absolute stranger to fear, this agony
was to him incomprehensible. At first he
endeavored to reason with her, to quiet her
excited nerves by his own resolute calm
ness, but finding this in vain, his p.ttienc.e
suddenly gave way, and he peremptorily
forbade all mention of the subject. Her
tears which now flowed in torrents, com.
pleted the overthrow of his good humor,
and turning away ho proceeded to inspect
the room in which they were destined to j
pass the night.
Near opjwsite doors, both, by the way,
unfurnished with locks, two couches hail
been prepared. Rut the furniture of each
although scrupulously clean, was of the
coarsest texture, and Tyrrel, delicate as the
most refined woman with regard to nil that
approached his person, surveyed them with
a disgust that knew no bounds. Notwith
standing her ngony Eva could scarcely re
jirepsa laugh ns she watched his elaborate
preparations lor the night. A napkin ta
ken from his dressing case was carefully
spread over the pillow, a kifiiilo robe sur
mounted by Ins furred cloak ami two or
more box coats covered the counterpane.

dressing gown and slippers, condescended
to throw his. elegant limbs uixin the rich
heap of sables and velvets, drojijiing almost
mmediately intothe very deepest ol health
ful slumbers.
Rut lor Eva, sleep was impossible. Sit-
tin-- rather than reclining upon the couch
nearest the door opening into the parlor,
she listened breath lessly to every move
ment of those without. Still together they
whispered, plotting, so said her busy fear.,
most horrible deeds of bloodshed and vio
lence. At intervals the murmuring sounds
would hush as though they, they, too, lis
tened, and most terrible was that silenee,
kniken onlv bv the soft breathing of the
sPf.p0r and the loud beating of her own
throbbin" heart.
Tw0 nn h.u, she (1 )hli),he rjlano-

that a faint light trembled in the east. It
must bo dawn, and her pulses bounded al the
thoupht. Rut no, Iho golden hands of her
watch rested ujkmi tho hour of twelve, nnd the
soft light' wns the glory of n rising moon.
And up rose the lady of tho night, parting
with her white hand tho drifting clouds.
Tho stars brightened, and the wind lied until
tho ruth of ils wings sounded only in the ins
tance Still morn audible those murmuring voices.
Now slm could distinguish words, utmost un
connected sciitonces. Presently a chair was
pushed back, nnd somo bno rose ; there was
a step towards tho door, and sho bounded
from tho couch, a smothered oath, the sound
of retreating footsteps, nnd again all was still.
The outer door wns now opened, and sho
heard several men enter, shaking tho snow
from their overcoats and heavy boots. Tliny
took seats by the fire and talked, sho could
hear them well, of tho coldness of the night)
tho clear Bky, and tho north wind that wns
jrifting the snow in heaps, across the rotul

ally dropped into whispers, and she crouched
by tho door, listening eagerly, but in vain.
Half an hour passed, and with limbs cramp
ed by the uneasy posture from which sho
bad not dared to stir, shivering and giddy
with lack of rest, she crept back to tho
couch. A drowsiness which even her ler-
rors could not overcomej stole over her. Tho
sound of voices camo less and H as distinctly
to her ears, the 6tara lo which hei eyes were
raised, faded softly, and she slept but a reel-

lently passed, another, another, another,

floor. She could not scream now, even to
save her husband. Her tongue was paralyz

of her hnmls. nod upon her temples. To

raised her head from the. pillow, and gazed
after them with distet.-tled ejes. They pass

Renovation or oi.n Apple-Thees. The
following information, received from a gard
ner who for many years largely supplied the
Loudon market with fruit, may probably be
new to many of our readers: It is generally
found that after an npple-tree has borne for a
certain number of yearsj it becomes compa
ratively unproductive. It has been usual in
such cases to remove tho old tree ami replace
it bv a younger one. This may be obviated
by reingr.ifting tho old tree; and according
to tho testimony of gardner above-mentioned
the older the stock, the better is the age, a-
morer several hundreds that his orchard con
tained, when tho wrilef Visited it, that had
undergone this process more than once. There
wero trees whose trunk were so hollow as in
some rents to be a little more than a shell,
which hud been subjected to this operation
the season before, nnd judging from tho vi
gorous appearance of the grafts, with perfect
1 . - - . .1 .a I
success. Tho plnfi ho adopted wn . ino 101
lowiita : The ends of the branches were
sawn or cut off where they wero auoui tno
size of a man's wrist, or rather less, and two
more scions inserted in each, according to
circumstances. By inw means, in ui iHiurao
of three years he obtained a largo full bear-
lug tree. uiiucuiiy m iu jiiu
tect the young grafts from damage in high
winds. This waiovercotne by ingrafting the
half of the treo at one time, and leaving the
other to form a shelter ; and completing' the
other half wheu the grafts wore sufficiently
grown to return tho bholter. It is scarcely
necessary to add. that this precaution did not
supersede tho usual appliances for giving the
acfons supporl, by means of poles attneneu to
tho branches. It may also be remarked, , tnat
the productive powers of the apple-trees) are
frequently Impaired by the want 01 suinoieru
attention In Catherine the fruit. 1 he great
est care should be observed in removing the
apple, that the bearing spear be not. broken
