minutes could elapse, and the reflection
inspired me with the extremest joy.
I hurried on; I stood before the man

and I approached nearer—to the very

and two or three broken chairs. :•The I

the man war drawing a seat beside it.
My eyes fell upon his features, and lii
knew Lim at once; it was Kate's uncle,
the only brother of her father. He was
a merchant in the village of H0yt:1.3111,4s

-ewed to me that he could be there for
no honest purpose, and I determinedto
wait, and learn, if possible, what
brought him thither.
He seated himself besid'e the table,
leaned his arm thereon, and for many
minutes appeared- buried in pro
thought. At length he started, dte
his watch from his pocket, and glanced'
at its face, while a.frowu overspread his

aloud, 'it is nearly ten o'clock, and I am'
not fond of waiting, especially in such a

gave a half frightened. glance - around
the apartment. 'He should have been
here punctually at the time—ah I there
he is now.'
The hall•door below was again open

hand and went forth into the corridor.
In a moment after he rcturned, in com
pany with an old lawyer named Parsons,
whose faoe wore the Rime villainous look
that it did when I had last seen him,
two years before. .
They seated themselves opposite one
another at the table, when Morton
'Come,' said he, 'to htudness at once;
you have kept me waiting already:, and
I am in baste to have the affair= settled.'
!With all my heart.' replied the other.
'I am as anxious as yourself to have it

He had been searching in his pockets
as he spoke, and now he produced a
couple of documents, which be laid up
on the table before him. The other
grasped them and began to read.
.4 'That is the true will,' said the lawyer.
'The other is the one I have drawn up.'

But, how to do it ? ICI appeared be

"'This shall be first destroyed,' said
he, .'and the those other papers, which

His hand approached the light; in an
other instant the Papers would be in
flames. A thought struck me.perhaps,in
the present situation I might accomplish
my desire, by working upon their feats.
It was the only thing that -presented
itself. and I. would try it at all events.
Accordingly. just as the corner of the
paper- waslntering the dames. I with
drew a. step, that they might not detect,
and gave a low, hollow groan. - The ef

ton's hand fell to this table, the eyes of
both glanced in terror around the apart
ment, and they seemed rootel to their
seats with Nu.
'Did you hear ?' uttered Morton, after
a :raiment, in a whisper.
1. did l' was the reply; it seemed to
come Irbru the outside.'
'From below, rather; it may have
been the wind; but let us hasten the
burning of these papers and away. I
care, not to stay in this dreary place
,Again the paper was approaching the
lamp; Again' I uttered a groan. deeper
and more prnkniged than before, and
this time followed it up with a deMoni
seallaugh;, The paper dropped from
Morton's - ;tauld to, thepoor, and he
sprang to his feet, With two or. three
bounds he cleared the room, and nearly .
fell to the bottom of the stairs . in his
haste to escape from the place. The
lawyer follbwed close in: his rear, even
more frightened than his Companion. I
heard them inane into the open air with
feelings of unbounded" delight, and I
ient after them an unearthly yell, which
efeeehireied their aptuul cot • Iwo.
c - The light still rambled, and I lost no
time in securing the documents which
I desired. I did nottake them lll—the
will of itself was sufficient, and I could
not take the whole, nor wait to look
them over, for the iota& of the two men
might subside, and they return at any
moment. rSo I fled from the house,
; .11 escaped as quickly as possible to
village, where, without my return
being known to any one beside, I called
at the residence of a valued friend, with
whom I determined to stay through the
night, giving hini a full account of what
had happened, and receiving from him
in return an anoount of everything of
importance which bad transpired in
Reyfleld daring my absence. I now
learned that the father of Bate had been
dead about two months only, since
which time Bate henielf had been an
inmate of her uncle's house.
We had been conversing an hour or
more, when a loud alarm was heard in
the street, and the cry of 'fire 1' rang out
upon the night air. • We went to the
door, when we saw that a red glow was
pervading the whole heavens. I cora
prebend the truth in an instant, and
turned my eyes in the direction of the
Morion mansion. It was all in flames,
and fierce tongues of-fire were darting
out from every window, the roaring of
which could soon be heard even from
where we were standing. -
The two conspirstOrs, whom I had so
terrified, had not returned after they
left, it was very plain to be seen; and
as I had not extinguished the limp, the
loose papers upon the table mast have
been blown Into tht flames, thus Setting
the room on fire. The building was
old, and easily ignited; and in half an
hour from the time olthe fire bursting
out only a mass of - ruins remained.
The excitement throughout the town
was intense, and many - surmises were
made as to how the mansion could have
been fired—butnone imagined the
true cause. t
The next day did •not leave my
friend's house, but I sent for a trusty
lawyer and gave the will into his bands,
with the full particulars of what I had
witnessed in connection with it. On
the morning following. however, I

gave warto a flood of tears.
'I know all dose Kate

derly.: 'lt is hard blow tor yortz—for

We entered the park); and when Kate
had partly composed helself, she said:
'The death of my father in not all.
When I pledged yin my hand, a .for.
tune was to accompany it; now, alas, I
have nothing ! I know not how it is,
- but my uncle claims the entire estate;

me, leaves lint a trifle.'
A door wail Bong Ardently open; and
Mr. Morton appeared, evidently some•
what excited, it not envied. Ho had
heard my entrance to the - lime and
listened to all that had been said.
'lt is no fault of-mine,' •he :exclaimed
abruptlj, without giving me any other
salutation, 'that - you are not an heiress.

and, goitg l into another room, he soon
after returned with the document given
him by Parsons two night before:

'Very ,pr i operly done,' remarked he

strong passions that moved him—itho,
I ask, dare doubt that this is the will of
my brother ?'
'Pardon me, but _ I have doubts my
self—strong doubts—especially while
thhipaper is in exillence.'
He drew forth, as he spoke the origi
nal will of Kate's father, and held it up
to the observation of the other. The
effect was startling. Merton's face
changed instantly toe look of the dead-
Halt hue, and the angry words he was
about to utter died away in a groan.
He knew at once that he was ruined—
utterly. hopelessly rained—and he
sank back in his seat, incapable of
speech or motion. ,
'You see that all is known,'. confirm
ed the lawyer, assuming a sternness of
voice he bad not before used, 'and you
Will do well to make no denial of your
crimes. : The deed you hold is a forged
one, and, we have ample proof that such
is the ca4e. - Yon ,thought - the flames
which cc:dimmed the old mansion-house
had destroyed the evidence of your
guilt, but you were mistaken. They
were preserved to defeat the unholy
scheme you had formed to deprive your
orphan niece of her possessions.'
'Merciful heaven I' Dried Kate, stock
ed and bewildered at what had passed;
'can it indeed bw i tnte that you, uncle,
are capable of snob a deed ?'
The old man uttered not a word but
he turned his eyes upon his niece, stag
gered to his feet, and , then, ere he could
advance a step, convulsive motion
shook his whole frame,, a deep groan
burst from his pallid lips, and he fell
forward heavily to the floor. I sprang
to him and raised his head; a small
stream of blood was issuing from one
corner of his mouth; and his eyes were
fixed and glassy. I laid my-hand upon
his bosom ; the heart gave not a throb.
He was dead !
It was the desire of Hate that the
crime of, her uncle; Should not be made
known, and we determined that the af
fair shOuld remain a secret to the world
as far as possible. The villain Parsons
was acquainted with our knowledge of
his acts, and, to save himself, fled the
place forever, which, undex the circum
