were alarmed by a hollow ghostly sound as of
spirits .knocking m the earth. The blows
were regular and quite distinct, and without
cessation until .cockcrow. The next night
these awful sound were again heard, and
seemed to become louder and more urgent as
the day drew near; but, with tho first scent of
morning air, they suddenly ceased. The ap-
prentice gave information to the town author-
ities; a military watch was set, and the cause
of the strange noises in the earth was very
soon discovered. The enemy was under
ground ; the Turks, from their camp on the
Leopoldsberg, were carrying a mine under the
city;and, not knowing the levels, had ap-
proached so nearly to the surface that there
was but a mere crust between them and the
bakehouse floor
What was to bo done ? The aai.ger was im-
wment-the remedy must be prompt and de-
cisive. A narrow arm of the Danube ran
within a hundred yards of the place; pick and

short time a canal. was cut between the river

and the bakery. Little knew the Turks of
the cold water that could then ct any time be
thrown upon their undertaking. All was still.
The Viennese say that the hostile troops al-
ready filled the mine, armed to the teeth, and
uwauingoniy a concerted signal to tell them could make up our minds,
that a proposed midnight attack on the walls "Then, when we were all willing to surrcn

such a low roof; jast such a thick palpable air,

for yourself your own private and exclusive

of Austria below the Enns on this side of the

as yet touched by the flames,
"On the sixteenth, the town itself being
then in ashes, there came a soldier dressed in
tit; Turkish costume, save that he wore the
leather jerkin of a German horseman, into
the high-street, and waving a white cloth, he
called out in the Hungarian language, to those
t'f us who were in the fortress, that if we
would ask for grace, both we and ours should
be protected, and a safe conduct (salva quar-
tia) given to us that should be our future dc-
fence. Thereupon we held honest counsil to-
gether, citizens and neighbors then present,
and in the meantime gave replv, translated al-
so into Hungarian, that if w; should agree
thereto, we would set up a white Hag upon the

It was five o'clock in the morning before we
but, as each armed man came to the door, his
musket was torn out of his hand, and such as
resisted were dragged by the hair of the head
into the square by the Turks, and told that
no was the first man murdered. Upon this the
Pacha stood up, and began to call out with a
loud, clear voice to his troops, and as thev
heard his words, they fell upon the unarmed
men in the market-place, and hewed them
down with their scimetara without pity or re
morse sparing none in their eagerness for the
butchery,- and which, in spite of their hast-?,
was not ended till between one and two o'clock

Of the very best reading matter that capital cn

Tho aim of the editor will be to produce a pub

choice in taste and style; and he flatters himself
from the known talents of his contributors, that hi
will bo able to present as many good original ar
ticles to his readers as any publication of the day.
He shall not, however, hesitato to publish, from
time to time, articles from English author, and
translations from the best Gertaan and French
writers, provided the pieces have never before ap
peared in print in this country. Essays on impor
tant Political Subjects will likewise be inserted,
and criticisms on the Literature of America and
the movements of the Age. The Leview Depart
ment, in which a large and liberal spirit of crit
icism will always be maintained, will be extended.
For the defence of American Diterature the editor
will always be ready ; tho maint.ain.incc of a cor

be so much to increase the number of his enirrav-

most finish tho artist can give them ; for common
wood-cuts arc so easily multiplied, that the mon
indifferent publication may outrank in dreary dis
play the choicest periodical.
Ihe Editor does not feel, that with his own rea
ders, he can increase his claims to respect bv in
sisting on any very great superiority of 'Graham'
over several similar publications, but thinks Le
may safely confide in their friendship for the

sent list, and such inereaso as naturally grows out
of an extended circulation in a country where
readers are multiplying so rapidly.
Of tho January number tho first edition will i.
