About four-end-thirty Years ago I Vas tray

the arrival of my conveyance at the summit of

while 1 looked upon the sad and solemn scone

ono which WNW, and, indeed, for a inoMent,
froze ino with horror. The sound was a cry,
or rather a hotel of despairing terror, such as I
have never heard heferc or since uttered by

By this limo I was agein.imatcd in mj vc-

driving whirled us into the old fashioned street,
and brought the chaise. to a fdil atop before
the, open , door and well lighted hall of the
Bell Inn. To me them has alivays been an air
of-indescribable cheer and comfort about a
substantial country hostelry, especially when
one arrives,' es I did, upon a keen winter's
night, with an appetite assharp, and something
of thatconse of adventure and'excitement which
before the dais of down'trains and tickets, al
ways in a' reater or.jefs degree, gave a zest to
traveling. Greeted with that warmest of wel-•

appetite ; and having . for some hours taken mine

A superititieus terror, which could nut cum'
