It was near midnight, in the autumoof they= Iss
when a knocking was heard at the door of this honor i
so loud that the lower hall resounded. Pierre, the *I
male servant in the lady's little household„ was goers
from Paris, with her permission, to be preient.at the,
marriage of his sister; and it so happened that Martin' iie.
re, the maid, was this night the sole companion of ter
mistress. She was none of the most -coo:epees, sea
sat trembling inher chamber, listening to the repeste#
knocks, and thinking over all the tales of thirirytta sued
murderers her busy memory could supply. But the
clamor at the door redoubled, and she could rresay
tinguish a voice, whether in menace or septs the
could not tell. Fearful that her mistress Might beli.
wakened, the maid snatched up the light, and ran 46
window that overlooked the entrance to the bomb.-
From there she distinctly heard a voice esmreating iii•
mission in the most urg - uat manner.
"This is no : the manner of robbeis," thmsght * 14,t•

my mistress to be always ready to aid the distressed?'
Therewith she threw open the window, cad demi:Aid
who made such a noise at the door, at this late lustre.
She tried to disguise her voice, and assume the Aoki
tones of a man.
By the faint light of the moon, through drift*
clouds, the maid discovered a tall figure wrapplik ins
dark mantle, with a broad-brimmed hat pulled doin
closely over the face. She called aloud, as if toi. pie

"Ali, Martiuiere, is that you? I know your race

assured. But I must speak, and this moinent, with

"You are mistaken," cried the maid, "if yon initigisl
my lady will speak with you at this hour of the tight.',
She is sleeping; and on no account would I roulettes'
fr...m the repose so necessary at her time of life."

"Come to-morrow morning," said the maid.
Her voice betrayed her hesitation. The smogs?
answered quickly and bitterly:
"Does fate or the blasting lightning wait for catento
nicnt hours? Have I not told you, that salvasionliange
cn this moment? Can you refuse ma help? Open the
door; you have nothing to fear from a miserable sett:A . 4
like me; I come only to implore succor, that I may be
saved from impending ruin!"
ISlartiniere observed that these words were uttered in
a tone of the deepest anguish, and interrupteti by sobs:
and that the voice was a youtlifel one. Her heart melt
ed; and without further deliberation, she descended the
stairs and opened the door. .
No sooner was the door open, than the siesuegte
rushed in. The light held by Martiniere fell Ad 00091
his face, which was that of a young man, pale want*
and bearing the marks of violent emotion. '
"Lead me to your mistress!" he exclaimed, so londly
that the maid 'was ready to swoon with fright. • • His
mantle had fallen back, and she saw the gleam of &der
ger in his belt. Hastily ascending the smirs,up whieh
he followed her, she closed the door of the anteoroom
to the chamber of Mademoiselle Scuderi, and placed
herself firmly against it.
"Your behaviour within the house," she said few
lutely, though in a trembling voice, "does not at ill
agree with your humility without, which won my too
I ready sympathy. You shall not now speak with her
ladyship. If you mean no ill, as you pretend, yott Intl
come to-morrow; now you must depart."
The man sighed deeply, but looked fiercely at Mar
tiniered, and grasped the handle of his weapon. She
stood firm. returned his glance boldly, and pressed
I more closely against the door.
"Let me pass!" cried the stranger.
"I will not stir from this place," answered the deer&
ted maid, "do what you will. You can murder me
but your crime will, sooner or later, be expiated cm the
I scaffold, where many of your companions in guilt hive
I bled already."
"You take me to be a robber," renamed the youth:
with flashing eyes and a scornful smile—"andsooth I
look like one at this moment; but my companions in
guilt, I would have you know, are not yet judgetil"— ,
and laughing wildly, he drew his dagger. Martiniere
prepared to receive the death-stroke, when the clatter
of the horses' feet and the clash of weapons was hand
in the street. "The guard! help, help"! cried she. But
her mouth was stopped by the hand of the intruder
" Woman, you would destroy me!" he ev‘.l.aimad 111 a
low, hoarse cone. ..It is all over, take this--take ix—

ed it and hastened out of the he ose. Martiniere, con
fused and terri:ird, with didioulty groped her way

had retured earlier than he anticipated from his vacua , .

had been arrested, whence the clamor thatiaad reached
the ears of Ma. -t"niere. "I was well knows to Des.
