in a pouring wet day in the park, brought
Me into oloiit relations with a pleasant
•looking elderly German, who had fre
quently crossed my rambles, and more
than-once halted to exchan , z,e a few words
with me in the frank, open-hearted fash
ion of the hospitable Teutonic race. Our
acquaintance, however, was still in em
bryo, when, on the day of-which I am
speaking, the old man, having taken
shelter under a thinly , foliaged tree, was
in a fair way to be thoroughly drenched,
I came to the rescue with my umbrella.
Observing that he had got wet through
before gaining his impromptu refuge, I
- insisted upon taking him to my lodgings
(which were close at hand), and drying
him thoroughly before I let him go; his
own residence, as I found on inquiry, be
ing at a considerable distance. The old
man's gratitude knew no bounds, and
next morning he reapp4ared with a hos
pitable smile upon his broad face. an
nouncing that he had told "his folk" of
my kindness to •him, that his "Efausfran"
and his "kleine Gretchen" wished to
thank me tbemsehree; that, in short, I
must come and eat tea-cakee with the 4
that very tvening, and s.nnke a German
pipe afterwards, which Herr Holzmann,
in common with the maj•,rity of his coon•
trymen, regarded as the acme of human
felicity. In. -order to secure himself
sgainstany evasion, be added, with a res•
4 olute air, that, as I might possibly !me my
way, he wouli come and fetch me him.
Punctual as death or a collector of
water rates, Herr Heinrich Holzman pre
sented himself at the time appointed, and
marched me off in triumph to a neat, com
fortable-looking little house on the south
ern side of the town with a small garden
in front (if it. Th?... garden VV-Ii of the in

mounted by a corpulent teapot of truly
domestic proportions, presided over in
thi, case by two female figures, who, on
our approach, came forward to greet us,
and are introthiced to me by my host as
his wife and daughter.
Frau Holzman (or, as her husbanc! calls
her, Liecehen) is a buxom. motherly, ac
tive-looking woman, apparently about
fifty years of age, with that snug fireside
expression (suggestive of hot tea-cakes
and well aired sheets) characteristic of the
well-to-rio German matron, but a close cb
server may detect on the broad, smooth
forehead, in these round, rosy cheeks, the
faint but indelible impress of former tri
als and sufferings; and through. the ring
of her voice, full atid cheery though it is,
runs an undertone of melancholy that
would seem to tell of a ti ne in the far
distant past whet such sa lness was only
too habitual. The daughter, Maxgarethe
—or Gretchen, as her parents call her—
who may be abut eighteen, is one of

But the object which especially attracts
my attracts my attention is a tall, grim
bureau of dark-oak, in the farther corner
beyond the fire•place, decorated wi;l2
those quaint old German carvings which
carry one back to the streets of Narem•
berg and the house of Albrecht Durei., ,
PA4.47;04P4, 4144 4 i ,Ad P:e , in0)1 1 0
untrammeled freedotn, shoulder Ciishoul:
der, like officers in the centre of a hol
low square, with `all the beasts of the
earth formed in close order around them,
and the tree of knowledge standing op
like a sign-post in the rear. There the
huge frame of Goliath, smitten by the fa
tal stone reels over like a falling tower,
threatening to' crush into powder the
swarm of diminuatiie Philistines who
hop about in the background. There ap•
pear the chosen twelve, with faces curi
ously individualized, In spite of all the
roughness of the carving, and passing
through every gradation, from the soft,
womanly teatures of the beloved disciples
to the bearded, low-bred, ruffianly visage
of him "which also was the traitor."
And there the persecutor Siul, not yet
transformed into Paul the Apostle
tsheathed in steel from top to toe, armed
with a sabre that might have suited Blue.
beard himself, and attended by a squadron
of troopers armed cap-a-pie), rides at full
gallop past the gate of Damascus on his
errand of destruction.
' The bureau must be a very old one,"
remarked I, tentatively.
"Wise indeed; but' that's not why we
value it," answers. the old man, with
kindling eyes. "That bureau is the most
precious thing we have; and there's a
story attached to it which will never be
forgotten in our family, I'll answer for it.
I'll tell you the story one of these days,
bit not to-night, for we musn'ispoil our
pleasant evening by any sad recollections.
And here, in good time, comes Lieschen
to WI! us that tea's reedy."
I wi l l not tantalize my readers with a
catalogue of the good cheer—which heap
ed the table; suffice it to say, the meal was
one that would have tempted the most
"notorious evil liver" that ever returned
incurable from Calcutta, and seasoned
with a heartiness of welcome which would
'have made far poorer fare acceptible.
Fresh from reminiscences of "frlermann
and Dorothea," I could almost have irn
agined myself in the midst of thitt finest
domestic group of the great German ar
tist. The hearty old landl 'rd of the
G Ilen Lion, and his "kluge ver stindige
Illusfrau," were before me to the lite
the blue eyed Madchen, who loaded my
plate with tea cakes, might, with the ad•
dition of a little dignity, have made a
very passable Dorothea; while "brother
Wilhelm," had he been there, would have
represented my ideal Hermann quite fair
ly. Nor was the "friendly chat„ wanting
to complete the picture. The old man,
warming with the presence of a new list
ener, lauhched into countless stories of
his 601 tier son, who, young as he was, had
already smelt powder on more than one
hard fought field, during the first short
fever of the seven weeks' war. Frau Lis
beth, who was an actual mine of those
quaint old legends which are nowhere
more perfect than ivi"Ot , rnaaciy, poured
forth a series of tabs which would have
made the fortune of any "Christmas Num
ber" in Britain; while the young lady,
though rather shy at first, shook off b. r
bashfulness by degrees, and asked a thous
and questions respecting the strange re
giens which I had recenely quitted; the
sandy wastes of the Vol - 4a, and the v(iiee
!es, s. litudes of the Din—relics of former •
gl ry whtc still cling around ancient Ka
zri—wicker•work shanties inhabited by
brawling Cossac'is and Crimean caverns
tenanted by Tartar peasants—battered
KPrtch and ruined Sebastopol—Odessa,
with her sea-fronting boulevard, and sack
ed Kiev, with her dim catacombs arid dia
dem of gilded towers—the barbaric spier
d..r of ancient Moscow, and the imperial
beauty of queenly Stockholm. It was
1 ate in the evening before I departed,
which I was not allowed to do without
promising once and agai i not to be long
~f returninz.
"Aid I kept my w, - Ird; for the bap•
piuesz• of this litt'e circle, sf. simple anl

time. I had partaken fully
as often of Frau Lishei b's
inexhaustibic tea-cakes; I had preserved
Fraul , in 3largaretlie, on the morning of
her eighteenth birthday, with a pair of
Russian' ear-Jrops, accompanying iny
gift (as any one in my place might well
have done) by a resounding kiss on both
cheeks, which the plump little Madchen
received as frankly as it was given. But
the relentless divinity of the scythe and
sellpd Kid, who pr,iverbially wars for no
man, at length put a period to rh_v stay in
Berlin; and one evening, a few days be
r,,.te my departure, I reminded Herr
I-V.iiririch of his promise to tell me the
history of the of I bureau which had ?it

My wife and I talked it over, and Fettled
that it should be done ; and we were just

had taken offence at my marriage, and
never looked near me since,) WhS dying,
and wanted tO)see me immediately. So
away I went—My wife wanted to v, too,
but I thought sh had better not—and
when I got there I found him lying in a
kind of adose, and nobody with him but
the doctor and the pastor, who lived dose
'S ) I sat down to wait till he awoke ;
and sure enough, in about half an hour,
his eyes opened and fell• full upon me.
He raised himself in bed—l think I eee
him now, and with the lamp-light falling
on his old, withered face, making it look
just like one of the carvings , on old
bureau, which stood at the foot 'og, the
bed—and said, in a hoarse whisper, l Hein•

though the black cat has been between
us lately. When I'm dead Limn have that
bureln yonder ; there's more in it than
though thinlest ;' and he sank back with
a sort of choking laugh that twisted his
face horribly. Those were his last words,
for after that he fell into a kind of stupor
and died the same night.
"When his property came to be divid
ed, every one was surprised, for they bad
all thought him much richer. I got the
bureau, just as he said ; and, remember
ing his words about it, we ransacked each
drawer from end to end, but found noth•
ing bill two or three old letters and a roll
of tobaixo ; so we made up our minds
that he must have either been wandering
a little, or else that—God forgive him—
he had wanted to play us one more trick
before he died. In a few weeks more all
was ready for our going, and away we
went to St. Petersburg.
"When we got there, we foukd it of a'-

run short. Ab ! mein lierr, may you nev

lower and lower, work as bard as you
like, and one trouble coming on you after

ten you."
The old hero's voice quivered with emo
tion, and an unwanted tremor disturbed
the placid countenance of his wile, while
even the sunny face of the little Frau le in
looked strangely sad.
"Well, mein Herr, we struggled on in
this way for two years longer, hoping al
ways that our lu,A w )uld turn, an.l put
ting the best face we could on it ; though
many a time when the children came to
ask me why I never brought them pretty
things now, as I 113+1i t I do at home. I
could almost have sLt down and cried. At
last the time came when we c )uld Stan d
against it no longer. There was a mane y
lender close by us, from whom we had
borrowed at higher interest than we could
afford, who was harder upon U 3 than any
one, (may it n b?, 1 to his charge
hereafter!,) (tad he, when he saw that we
were getting behind in our payments,
seized our furniture, and announced a
sale of it by auction. I re,oa.qnbsr the
night before the sale as if it was yester
day. My boy Wilhelm was very ill just
then, and no one knew whether he would
live or die ; and when my wife and I sat
by his bed that night, and io aced at each
other and thought of what was to come, I
really thought my heart would have
broken. Ah !my Lisbeth, we have indeed
been in trouble together."
As he uttered the 1 tst words the old man
clasped fervently the b-)11, brown hand
of his wife, wh.) r-turned the pressure
with interest, and, after a ;light pause,
he resumed thus:
