Where the maples nodded together.
At the edgy of the pathless wood,
With a basket of rips red blurt's,
A mint little asides stood.
Eft hair was hks simian of sunset.
Falling oft °est meadows &gimp.
Or the Earliest break of the morning
Pouring gold on the and smelt.
Its green leaves lay ligbt on her forehead.
As if wood.nympbs wen crowning their quest;
And the tremulous smile of the sunshine
-Slept warm on the tresses between;
The blue-bolls were nodding beside her,
Bet her bright eyes were bluer to me,
As they turned, with an lanomisst gladness.
That fair summer morning, to mel
fir cheeks won the hue of ripe peaches,
The sunlight so often bath kissed.
And ber Azure was light 1111 th' ins
That ride ou the morning's • mist!
But her voice was like nothin sate Eden,
And the musical br•eses which blow
Ocir meadows that sleep in the suaahla•,
Where tali/ tempest or snow'
And she said with hor blue eyes uplifted,
And a blush on her berry brown cheek,
"Will you show me the way, sir, to Asbleyr
And bar voint was so gentle and mask,
loat I caught to my heart the maiden.
And surd her to be my wife;
So I ihowci her the way to Ashley,
And she stow, me tot way through life.

now lost no time in preferring before the King a

, palace; and to the .of all assembled,
' young Bruntfuld fell the powerful sword
of his adversary. The intelligence was commu
-1 nicated to his mother at Craighosse, where she
, was found in her darkened chamber, prostrate
before an image of the Virgin. The priest who
had been commissioned to break the news,
r l opened his discourse in a tone intended to pre
pare. for the worst; but she cut him short at
very 'lining with a.frantic exclamation—
'l know w you would tell—the murderers
, sword has prey ed and there are now but two,
instead of throe, redress their father's wrongs!"
i The melancholy 'deaf, after the first burst of
. ..feeling, seemed only have concentrated and
increased that passion by which she had been
for many years. Site appeared to
fe n e i rth i t:: d the death of her eldest son only formed
an addition to that debt which it was the sole
object of her existence to see discharged.—
; Roger, sbe said, "will have the death of his
brother, as well as that of his father, to avenge.
Animated by such a double object, his arm can
hardly fail to be successful."
Roger returned about two years after, still
handsomer, more athletic, and more accomplished
youth than his brother. Instead of being dams
itell by the fats of Stephen, he burned but the
; more eagerly to wipe out the injuries of his
house with the blood of Moubray. On his ap
-1 plication for a license being presented to the
court, it was objected by the crown lawyers that
! the case had been already closed by teal-fortune
l of the former challenger. But, while this was
the subject of their deliberation, the applicant
caused so much annoyance and fear in the court
circles by the threats which he gave out against
the enemy of bi 4 hope that the Sing though it
best to decide in favor of his claim Roger
Bruntfield, therefore, was permitted to fight in
barrels with Noubray, but the same fortune at
tended him as that which had already deprived
the widow- of her first child. Slipping his foot
in the ruid,t of the combat, ho reeled to the
ground, embarrassed by his cumbrous armour.
31oubray, according to the barbarous practice of
I the age , immediately sprang upon and dispatched
him. "Heaven's will be done:" exclaimed the
widow, alien fibs heard of the fatal incident,—
"but, ;patios Deo.' there still remains another
chance "
Fleury Bruntfield, the third and last surviving
son, bad all along been the favorite of his moth.
cr. Though apparently cut in a softer mould
than his two elder brothers, and bearing all the
marks of a gentler and more amiable dispositioe,
he in reality cherished the hope of avenging hie
father's death, more deeply in the recesses of his
heart, and longed more ardently to accomplish
that deed than any of his brothers. His mind,
naturally susceptible of,the softest and tenderest
impressions, had contracted the enthusiasm of
hie mother's wish in its strong•st shape; as the
fairest garments are capable of tile deepest stain
The intelligence, which reached him in France,

fag any fear to meet this a and more redoubt
ed warrior, rather longed for a combat, which
promised, if successful, to mark him one of the
most renowned swordsmen of his time. He had
heard of the attachment which subsisted between
Bruntfield and his nieor, and, in contemplation
of an alliance which might give some force to
the claims of that lady uptin his estate, found a
deeper and a more selfish reason for accepting the
challenge of te ti t youthful enemy. King James
himself pro against stretching the law of
the per duffles% so far, but, sensible that there
would be no peace between either the parties or
their adherents, till it ahonld be decided in a fair
combat, he was fain to grant the required license.
The fight was appointed to take place on Cm
mond Inch, a low gray island in the Frith of '
Forth, near the Castle of 13arnbougle. All the
preparations were made in the moot approved
manner by the young Duke of Lennox, who had
been the friend of Bruutfield in France. Oa a
level spice, close to the northern beach of the
islet, a space was marked off, and strongly secur
ed by a paling. The spectators, who were al
most exclusively gentlemen, (the rabble not be
ing permitted to approach,) sat upon a rising
ground beside the enclosure, while the space to
wards was quite clear. At one end, surrounded
by his friends, - stpod the laird of Barnbougle,
huge and ungainly figure, whose features display
ed a mixture of ferocity and hypocrisy in the
highest degree unpleasing. At the other, was
attendd by a host of family allies and friends,
stood - the gallant Henry Bruntfield, who if I di
vested of his armor, might have realized the idea
of a winged Mercury. A seat was erected close
behind the barras for the Duke of Lennox and
the other courtiers, who were to act as judges;
and at a little distance upon the sea lay a small
decked vessel, with a single male figure on board.
All the proper ceremonies which attended this
strange legal custom had been gone through, the '
combattanta advanced into thecenpe, and plant
ing foot to foot, each with his iiikry sword in
his hand, awaited the command that should let
them loose against each other, in a combat which
both knew would only be closed with the death
of one. The word was given, the fight cora
menced. Moubray, almost at the first pass, gave
his adversary a cut in his right limb, from which
the blood was seen to flow profusely. But Brunt
field was enabled, by this mishap, to perceive
-the trick upon which his adversary chiefly de
pended, and, by taking care to avoid it, put
Moubray nearly hors do combat. The fight then
proceeded for a few minutes, withouteither gain
ing the least advantage over the other 3luubray

from the cuts and thrusts at his antogonist, but
he could wake nu impre.ssin in return The
qubstion then became one of time It was evi.
delft that, if uo lucky stroke should take effect
beforehand, he who first became fatigued with
the exertion would be the victim. Moubray felt
his disadvantage as the elder raid bulkier min,
and begin to fight desperately, and with les4
caution. One tremendous blow for which he
seemed to have gathered his last strength, t
effect upon Bruutfield, and brought him up:m his

most frantic eagertiess to her bosom. The wily'

sons, dead on the sward before her, while there

A YANKEE OCTDONE.-A Yankee and a
Frenchman owned a pig in copartnership. When
killing time came, they wished to divide the car
cass. The Yankee was anxious to persuade the
Frenchman that the proper way to divide was to
cut it across the back. The Frenchman agreed
to it, on condition that the Yankee would turn
his back and take choice of the pieocs after it
was cut in two. The Yankee turned his head
and the Frenchman asked:
"rich piece vill you have; se pied wid zo
tail on him, or se piece vat ain got no tail on
"The piece with the tail?" shouted the Yan
kee instantly. ,
"Den by gar you take hula and I take se Od
er," said the Frenchman.
Uppoon turning road, the Yankee found that
the PYenohman had cot off the tail and stuck it
in the pies mouth.
