"You seized him—you held him fast--the guard
came to your help?" cried La Regnie, seizing the am
of Desuais, os if he had been the robber.
"Fifteen paces before me," continued the weer.--
"The man sprang from before me into the deep shadow
of the wall, and vanished."
"Vanished—through the wall?"
"Exactly so."
"You are raving!" exclaimed La Regnie as be step
pedbackward, and struck his hands together with* gee
ture of despair.
"You may call me a madman," continued Desgrais„
rubbing his forehead as one just waited from a slosh
"or a fool; it happened exactly as I tell you. I stood
breathless before the wall, and around me the men who
had pursued the robber: among them the Marquis de Is

an old couple live, to whom not the slightest sus . pitien
can possibly attach. I have been over the plenum ae
gain this morning, and my opinion is that the person
who has baffled us is the devil himself!"
The story of Desgrais was soon known over Paris,
and the superstitious alarm of the people easily induced
them to believe that the words he bad uttered in bitter
jest were actually true. The head of the papidscs
were full of magic and diablerie, and it may well boom
ceived that all the details of the story were exaggerated
into the marvellous. A pamphlet, containing an ac..
count of the demon apparition, his rising out of the
earth, and his disappearance in the same manner before
the eyes of the affrighted Des.srais '
was published, em

striking terror to the hearts of those who read it, and
even intimidating the guard, whose business it was SD

Much concerned at this state of things, Asper=
went to the King and petitioned for the appoimmeat
of a new court, invested with powers even larger than
the Chan:bre Ardente, for the detection and punish
ment of the offenders. Lords was already convinced
that the Cha mb re Ardente had exercised too many cru
elties; and, distrustful as he was of the discretion of the
over-zealous La Regnie, rejected the petition. •
Another method was resorted to, to induce him to
reconsider the matter. The King usually spent his af
ternouns in the apartments of Madame de Mainteman,
where his ministers often met him and remained late in
the evening. One day, while there, a poetical petition
was presented to him, written in the name of some dis
tressed lover, who wished to carry a valuable present
to his mistress, but was afraid of the invisible robbers.
To Louis, the pular star of love arid gallantry, whom
beams could enlighten the darkest night, the embar
rassed poet and-lover appealed; beseeching him, by the
might of his dauntless arm; to crush his secret foes, as
did Hercules the serpent, or Theseus the Minotaur.—
The poem was artfully contrived to excite the King's
attention, from what was said of the secret danger, as
well as the labored panygeric on the Mcmareh with
I which it concluded. Louis read it through attentively,
and turning to Maintenun, without removing his eyes
from the paper, read it aloud to her, then smiling, ask
ed tier what she thought of the request of the endanger.
ed lover. The marquise replied, half in jest as was her
wont, that the wanderer in secret ways on errands for
bidden, deserved, in south, little protection, but that
doubtless vigorous measures ought to be adopted for the
detection of criminals. Dissatisfied with this reply,
the King folded the paper and was going to hand it to
the secretary who was writing in the adjoining apart
ment, when his eyes fell on Mlle de Seuderi, who had
just taken her accustomed seat near Maintenon. Turn
ing toward her, he said playfully:
"The Marquise knows little of the gallantry of oar
noble gentlemen. and chooses to parry me with her
"forbidden errands"—in sooth, anything but forbidden!
What think you, my fair Scuderi, of this poetical com
Scuderi rose from her seat and answered with a
graceful courtesy and a slight blush:
'"Un arrant qui craint les voleurs west. point 4ges
"By St. Denys, you arc right!" cried Louis, throwing
down the petition. "You are right! I will have no
blind proceedings, that level the innocent with the guil
ty! Argeuson and La Regnie must be content!"
All the terrors of the proper superstition were pres
ent to the mind of Martiniere, as she related next morn
big to her mistress what had passed, and with trem
bling hands delivered to her the mysterious casket.
Pierre stood in tho corner, pale, and hardly able to
speak, and wringing his hands; while the maid be
sought her lady to use every possible pet caution in open
ing the casket- Scudcri said, smiling, "You are a
couple of geese! Who wants to kill me? lam not rich
—I have no treasures worth the trouble of robbery,
and that every body knows. Who wishes harm to an
old lady who has nothing to do with rogues or murder
ers except in her romances; who provokes no one's en
vy—lives quietly aloof from the world; who has nothing
to leave behind her except the moderate effects of a
lune dame and a few well-bound volumes? You may
paint your last nights' visitor as terrible as you will, Mar
t iniere; I cannot believe he bad any evil purpose."
She took up the casket—the two attendants stepped
back—Pierre sank on one knee, while his ladypreued
hard on a steel spring, and the lid flew open.
In the casket lay a pair of gold bracelets, richly a
dorned with jewels, and a necklace, similarly orna
mented, all of rare splendor. The vain Montespen
had never such! Scuderi smiled, for what were such
baubles to her? She took from beneath them a folded
note, in which she expected to find the solution of the
mystery. She read the note and grew pale—it fell
from her trembling hands, and raising her eyes to
wards heaven, she sank back in her scar, Pierre and
Martiniere sprung to her help. de Scuderi burst
into tears, and sobbing exclaimed, "Is this my punish
ment? Are words uttered half in jest to lsei thus
I brought to me laden with fearful meaning? Am I, who
have lived in innocence and peace from childhood, in
my old age to be suspected of a league with crime.
The good lady put her handkerchief to her eyes and
wept still more, while Martiniere picked up the paper
and read it in obedience to a sign from her. It ran
" Un an:ant qui craint les relents n'cat point dig
ne d' amour.

wasted on improper objects—from troublesome penmen

though you, admired lady, are already adorned by fat

"Is it possible," repeated Scuderi, as her maid read
the billet, "that shameless wickedn ess can be carried
so far?" The sun was shining through the curtains of
crimson silk, and the gems on the table flashed with a
`brilliancy intolerable to her eyes; - she placed her hand
before her face, and commanded Martinere to replete
them in the casket. The faithful maid, as she closed
the lid, suezested that it would be proper to send the
jewels to the minister of the police, and inform lance
the circumstances under which they came into her pos
The lady rose and paced her chamber awhile, in
much agitation, while deliberating what to do. At
last she Bent Pierre to fetch a carriage, and directed
her maid to dress her as expeditiously as pomade.—
She then proceeded to the Marquise de Maine :non. It
