always says, it a mistake can be made, I am sure

he had come for Now, then, I will commence
the thing rightly
The Spread Eagle Inn, which is still standing;
and may be seen any day, by the curious
ler is a elms!, ill-lighted house, situated io the
heart of the city, yet keeping all its oddities,
which were just in the fashion some two or three
hundred years ago It is built around a court
yard, abut in by gates, across which alleries
are thrown, from one door to the other, ub the
paved yard below It has balustrades a d stair
eases containing suf f icient oak to buil half
modern house with; and deep windows ats add
big, queer shaped, gloomy rooms, and o
closets, and landing places and passages, carpet
chairs, and pictures that Mrs. Nosh might have
kept house with in the ark, to say nothiUg of the
curious old china on the sideboards, .and the
wine glasses and decanters to match To an
Englishman, it offers the snuggest of homes, and
the roast beef - and mutton there are unereep,
tionable; while the waiter is as civil and as
steady as if he bad been breathing the stings ,
phere of the old place for years. It makes one
feel "respectable," merely t i live there for a
time' ' and I, who had been a wild enough col
lege lad, found myself sobering' down day by
day, as I pored over my manuscripts, or dined
quietly, by myself, under the eye of Charles, the
waiter, off my slice of mutton and baked pow
toes, my pint of porter, and my apple or damson
tart'. quite like a family man I felt, st times—
though toy wife and children were with my Abip,
th a t w as to wine home some day, and bring me
an immense fortune. T did nut know how long
the voyage might take, not knowing even from
what port the vessel was to start; and so 1-lived
under the wings of the Spread Eagle, and worked

the second floor, would he tenanted one month,
by a couple with an indefinite number of c hit

to tell his servant to bring more wine; then would
come a travelling artist, with his sketch books
and his great Newfoundland dog, sod they would
play at rough and-tumble together, after he had
dune work, till the house shook, and the nervous
lady above nearly went into fits., and he would

I went t ) the Opera that evening. usually
spent my evenings there, ur at the theatre, be•
cause I had no acquaintances to the city, sod it
was dull sitting iu nay room alone. They played
the "13,hemian Girl," I remember, and the
tenor sung Mrs. Arnold's long, "Then you'll re.
member m " And the lights, and the music,
and the crowd s,4sined to pass away, and, leave
me li'teniug to her again, teaching the piano
softly, and half singing, half humming the words,
as if she trusted herself to utter them aloud, they
trout& surely bring tears with them. I thought
of her ootistantly till the opera was over, and the
hou'e empty; I thought of her over my hot sup
per at !Very's; ani I thought of her as I went

at her'erindow to see the light there, as it entet

and I held mine upside down before me, and
felt with a thrill of bashful satisfaction, that I
was no longer indifferent to the advice of Mr.
Weller, senior—"Samivel! Saulivell beware of
the vidders!" No; a widow had changed me in
the twinkling of an eye, and I was in love, as
hopelessly, as unreasonably, and as foolishly as
any sober man of thirty could well be!
I must now proceed to state that Mrs. Arnold's
room was on the second floor, just above No. 40,
and looking out upon Grace church street itself.
To it she went quietly on that eventful evening,
at the hour of ten, just at the time when I was
sitting in my box at the Opera thinking of her.
Something made her wakeful. She sat down at
her toilet table and talked awhile to the house.
keeper, who had come up with elein pillow oases,
and asked many questions about the house and
the family. How they broached the topic, Ido
not know—but after a time, they began to think,
and to speak about that strange phenomenon,
called 'spiritual rappings-' The Cook Lane
ghost was brought upon the carpet, and various
other stories told, till Mrs. Arnold grew nervous,
" e nd laughingly declared she would hear no more.
Then the housekeeper bade her good night, sod
she locked her door, and began to prepare for
The room was large, rather dark, and full of
corners and reeesaes. The light of the two wax
candles on the toi!et t.iV,' ohiy served to make
these corners visible in their shadowy gloom.—

A ?duitnea. REVEALED BY A Lux:lsl.—A
miraculous discovery ut a humble teurder is
related by v. Belgian jourmil ot a recut date,
of which we mak% a summary: Two brothers,
Jews, set out from Gyek with a view of placing
their two daughters at a boarding school in the
town of Grosswardein. During the night of
their absence, the youngest daughter, aged ten,
who was left at home, woke up her mother sod
denly during the night, awl eryiug bitterly, dec
lared that she saw her father and uncle, and all
being murdered. The mother, for some time.,
took no notioe of the child's declaration, but, as
she persisted, and would nut be pactEwd, buy be
gala to be alarmed herself, and the next morning
took the child -before the mayor of the town, to
whom she declared her dream, stating at the
same time that the murderers were two men itv•
'tug in the neighborhood, whom she deltheratei)
pointed out., cud further added that Om murder
was committed at the entrance of the forest,
the road to Grosswardein.
The Mayor, after receiving this revelation,
thought it prudent to make inquiry after the
wo neighbors indicated by the child, when
singular enough, they were diseevered to be ab
'.sent from home. This suspicions circumstance
induced the Mayor to dispatch :some officers to
the forest alladed to by the child, who discover
ea the horrible spectacle of fivebodies extended
on the ground, which were those of the two
brothers, the two daughters, aad the driver of
the vehicle in which they all took their depArl
tare. The corpses appeared to have all been -t
on fire, to all to destroy their identity, 'hod the
vehicle Was nowhere discovered. This horrible
tragedy led the officers to examine the whole
neighborhood, when they fortunately pounced
upon the two neighbors at a fair not far distant,
as they were in the very set of changing, some
notes on which some spots of blood were visible.
On being seised they immediately confessed their
mime, and on the child's dreatn being revealed
to them, acknowledged the fingbr of Providence
displayed in their capture. This tiroaderfel dream
on the part of the child, and its falfillment, ex
cited an immense sensation in the neighborhood.
