"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 Fare, his drawn sword in his hand. We lighteatorehe es—we examined the wall—not a trace of window, door, or opening was to be found. It is a high, well. built, stone wall, andencloses onone side a house where 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 bellished with wood cuts, anti. had an immense sale-- striking terror to the hearts of those who read it, and even intimidating the guard, whose business it was SD protect the city. Several of the kxne—d'armes pre& ded themselves with amulets dipped in holy water. 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 plaint?" Scuderi rose from her seat and answered with a graceful courtesy and a slight blush: '"Un arrant qui craint les voleurs west. point 4ges d'amour." "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 thug " Un an:ant qui craint les relents n'cat point dig ne d' amour. "Your ingenious wit, most honored lady, has saved rts—who appropriate treasures that would otherwise be wasted on improper objects—from troublesome penmen don. Accept these ornaments as a token of OW grad tude. They are the most valuable we have to offer. though you, admired lady, are already adorned by fat more inestimable jewels. We entreat that your gra cious remembrance and friendship may never be with.. drawn from -Tax Isvistar.z." "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 session. - 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 •.1 Inver who fears robbers, is unworthy of lore.
