-MOM visible in what she felt. Her brows
were widely depressed irom their natural :
position, her face becaine pale, her eyes
glared upon O'Rorke as if he had planted
it poisoned arrow in her breast, she seized
him - by the arm with a hard pinching gripe,
and - looked up for two . r three minutes in
his face, with an appearance of distraction.
- 07torke, who had never feared man, shrunk
from her touch, and shuddered under the
influence of what had been, scarcely with•
out an exception, cated the 'bad look.' The
crone held him tight, however, and there
they good, with their eyes fixed upon each.
other. From the gaze of intense anguish.
lbecountenance of Nell NlCrillum began to
Change gradually to one of unmingled exill ;
tation; her brows were raised to their prop
-et curves, her color rtiturned, the eye cur
roseate(' , with a rapid and quivering sense
of delight, the muscles of the mouth played
for .a little, its if she strove to suppress a
laugh;—at length 0 Rorke heard a low
gurgling sound proceed front her chest; it
increased; she pressed his arm more tightly,
and in a loud burst of ferocious mirth,
which she immediately subdued into con ,
densed shriek that breathed the very luxury
of revenge, she said,
`Lamh Laudher Oge, listen:---ax Ow

•She struck the point of her , tick against
the navem sit, until the iron Ferrol,: wi , l,
which it was hound tins] ed the tire Item ill ,
stones, after which she pass d on muttering
threats and imprecations as she left him.
&Rorke stood and looked after her w ig h
sensations of fear and attonishmeut. The
age was superstitious and encouraged a
belief in th • influence of powers distinct
from human agency. Every part of Ire
land was filled at this time w.th charactels
both male and female, precisely similar to
old Null M'Cullum. The del kness in
which this woman walked, according to t F, n
- opinions of a people but sii2litly advanced
in knowledge and citiliz Ilion, has been
but feeb'y advanced to the reader. To
ineet her was considered an omen of the
Most.unhappy kind; a circumstance which
• occasioned by the imprecation of Limb
_Laudher. She was reported to have
maintained an intercourse with the Niles,
to be capable of communicating the blight
of an evil eye, and to have car ried on a
team which is said to have been rather
prevalent in Ireland at the time we speak
of.rTnernely, that of kidnapping. 'file
speculations in reference to her object in
- perpetrating this crime were strongly cal
notated-to- exhibit the degraded state of'
101orpsople at that period. Some said that
she disposed of the children to a certain
class of persons in the metropolis. who
subsequently sent them to the colonies,
when grown, at an enormous profit.' Oth
ers maintained that she never carrier]
tbemAn Dublin at, all, but insisted that,
- - -Wing been herself connected with the fa
.- itieth ; shu possessed the power of erasing.
. by some secret charm, the influence of
baptismal protection, and that she conse
quently acted u an agent for the 'gentry'
to-whom she transferred them. Even to
tbia day itia the opinion in Ireland, that
the .good people' themselves cannot take
away,. a Child, except through the instru
-mentality of some mortal residing with
thein, who has been baptized; and it is al
io-believed- thiit no baptism can secure
children froth them, except that in which
the- riest has been desired to baptize them
with at especial view to their protection
stint fairy power.
... eh was the character this woman bore,
whether unjustly or not, matters little.

' glance on the waiter; 'an' tall me,' she ad

stammer, ran' as to Sally, the 'terra one o'
me knows any thing about her, since she
left this.'
'Sheemns,' replied Nell, 'you know that
Meeltaul Neil is in the house; but 1 . 11 give

Nell, while 1.1 -, miter went to inform
Meehaul, took two ribands out Gf her pock
et; one white an-4 the other black, both of
which she feldod into what would appear
in a bystander to be a similar kin,l of knot.
When the inkeeper's son and the waiter
returned to the hall, the former asked her
what the nature of her business with him
might be. To this she made no rep'y.
;;cel,t by uttering the word hush! and
pullintr the ends, first of the white ribbanri,
and afterwards of black. The knot of
the first slipped easily from the complica

ding along from: its respective ends, be

your fither that he must get some one else
to looKafther his sheep. Ay! he's dead!
Writ itat's past. Meehaul, fuly ms; it's
you I want, an' there's no time to be lost.'
She passed out as she spoke, leaving the
railer in a state of wonder at the extent
of her knowledge. and of the awful means
by Which, in his: opinion, she must have ac
luired it.
• . Meehaul, without uttering a syllable,
immediately walked-alter her. 'Tile pace
at which she went was rapid and energet—
ic, betokening a degree of agitatiorOind-in
terest on her part, for which he not
account, As she had no object iii bring
irsg him far frOm the house, she availed
herself of the first retired spot that presen
teditseif, in order to disclose the purport of
her visit. 'Meehaul Neil,' said she, 'we're
now upon the Common, where no ear can
hear what paWs betweentw I ax, have

'Ay! ay! it'rs tine spakint; but you don't
know the hand you. talk of. It's nue you
had betther avoid than meet. It's. the
strong hand, and the dangerous one when
ve xed. You know Lamh Laudher Oge.'
Meehanl started again, and the crone
could perceive by his manner. that the rm..
titre of the coMmunication she was about
to make had been already ,known to him.
,though not, she was confident, in so dark
and diabolicalla shape as that in which, she
determined to put it.
'Llath La udher Oge!' he exclaimed; I
'surely you On% mane to say he has any

paragraph in relatien to the Bankrupt Law
'The fate of the Bankrupt Act is sealed.
Tt h to be repealed, condemned, repudia
ted, in a violent and vindictive manner.—
The instructions to the Vermont Senators
have settled the question. No regular
course of legislation is to -be tolerated in
regard to this ill-fated law. It is not to be
regularly annulled, but is to be_ Lynched.
It is to be tried by Lynch law and expun •
ged. The plan is to present a petition for
its repeal—to move a reference of that
petition in the House to the tlonralittee on
the Judiciary, with instructions forth
vitith to bring in. a bill repealing • the act,
and- then this bill is to he passed at once
through all the Stages of legislation, . under
the decision-made by the Speaker at the
last Session Some say that the President
will veto this repealing 'law. Many ex
press an ardent hope that hs will do so.
Some of the ultra IYhigs say that if he will,
they wilitake this veto as a set-off against
the Bank and Dist ribution vetoes.'
