Affecting Story of au Outlaw.
There was a man by the name of Hays,
who, in consequence of I know not what
violation of the law, had betaken him
self to the region along our frontier,
which the King of the Netherlands
thought proper to recommend the abon
donment of not long ago. Hays had
been well educated and was a fiery, in
trepid fellow,
" Sir," said he to me one day, " I am
a sad fellow—very childish, very wick: *
ed, and of cotirse very wretched. lam

Well, I had left my wife ; no matter
why ; incompatibly if you like. All I
have to say, is, that she was altogether
too good for me. Had she been. more of

I not have been what 1 am now—an out

you needn't stare. I've told you about

Well, we separated. In plain English,
I ran away and left my wife ; taking
with me only one child, my poor dear
Jerry—the only child, I was sure of; for
between ourselves, my good sir, the de
vil had put it into my head to be jealous
of toy poor wife—and so 1 left her all
the children with gray and blue. eyes,
and took with the the only one that re
sembled me. Al,, you could have seen
that boy's eyes ! They were like sun
shine, though black as death. Well,
Jerry and I got along pretty well for
nearly three years, when one day I re
ceived a letter from my wife, saying
that blither, my eldest boy, and the two
babies were in their graves—two
drowned in each other's arms—the other

ed, that she was coming home. What
could I say 1 I kticw that l had wrong
ed her ; that I was a fool and a madman ;
but what could I say'?
Well, our agreements were made, and
I set of to meet her—leaving my poor
little boy at home, with a hired girl to
take care of him, until I got back. To
be sure that lie would not go astray, I
had tied a young Newfoundland puppy,
of which he was very fond, to the post
of his trundle bed—telling him to stay
there until I returned with his mother,
which might be in the course of that af
ternoon or towards nightfall."
Here he stopped, and his breathing
changed, but alter a few minutes, began
anew, in a low and steadier, though
much altered tone.
" Well, sir, we met once more, and
she forgave me; and we were happy.—
And so I took her into my arms, lifted
her into the saddle, and we started to-
gethcr—ttvo as happy creatures as there
were on the face of the earth—notWith
%standing the self-reproach and heaviness
I felt, on hearing the particulars of what
I cannot bear to speak of yet, or even to
think of--the death of Luther and his
two elder sisters. Poor Luther- 5 -poor
baby ! Well we were already more than
half way back to the place where she
was prepared to see her little nestling
asleep, and dreaming of its mother—
his dear, new mother, as lie called, and
persisted in calling her front the moment
I told him that she was coining to live
with us. Poor little fellow l Ile had
almost forgotten her. Suddenly, as we

and tls I turned toward her, I saw the
Whole Westtrn sky in a portential glow.
The woods Wert on flit! btfbro I could
speak, a strange darkness swept by and
I felt as if the hand of death was upon
tne. I tried to speak but could not. I
could only urge my wife to follow, and
clapping spars to-my horse, I rode strait
way to the fire. Once only did I turn—
and then only to look back and forbid
her to follow me further.
Well, I arrived at the place, and there
I found--bear with me patiently--first
the hired girl, frightened half out of her
senses, and hiding under a fence. I ask
ed her for my boy. She stood aghast ,
at the inquiry. Her only reply was a
wandering of the eyes as if in search of
something. At last, with great difficul
ty, she recollected herself enough to
that she had seen the fire in time to
escape with my boy—that being dread-
fully fatigued, though she bud not rim
far, she sat down to rest herself, and
looked toward the path by which we
were expected—that some how or other
she fell asleep—and that the lust she
remembered was something little Jerry
had said about flying back to untie poor
Carlo. My heart had died away within
me. I knew that I was childless--I
knew it—don't talk to me—l knew it.—
And it was so. When 1 arrived at my
house, I found it nearly destroyed by
fire—and a little way off lay my poor
boy, with Carlo watching over hint—

forgive me."
The German Robbers.
The members were bound . to the soci

they were rarely tempted to break,

to descend even on suspicion of our

devous of his chief, .the famous Picard.
The next night, while reflecting in hor
ror that, even by his treachery, he had
probably been unable to save his life, he
heard his name pronounced in a whis
per, and looking up, saw an arm pass
I between the iron bars of the window.
" ho art thou 1" inquired the robber,
"Thy master—Picard ; I have ventur
ed my life, as in duty bound, to set thee
at liberty !"—ln a few minutes his irons
were sawed off; and one of the bars
wrenched from the window frame ; and
following his conductor, he scaled the
walls, and scented the free air of the
neighboring forest. The band was rea
dy to receive them, drawn up in a semi
circle and standing under arms in. a
dead silence. Their delivered was pla ,
ced in the middle.
"Scbletchner !" said the chief, address ,
ing him with a slang epithet for traitor;
"didst thou imagine that the word of
treason would be unheard by Picard,
because it was whispered in the depths
of it dungeon I—Die, coward, in thy
guilt !
"Mercy, mercy I" cried the wretch as
the pistol touched his ear. "Give Me
death, but let me die in battle! Lead
me on this very night, were it to attack
an army, and let toe die upon the bayo-
nets of the foe!"
"lt must be," said Picard calmly ; "thou
art unworthy of the death of the brave.
Comrades ! shall the laws of the band be
set aside in favor of a hound like this V'
"No!" growled the deep stern voice
of the lieutenant; and the ward was ech
oed by some in cruelty ; but by some in
dismay, till it died away like a prolon
ged groan in the forest. The white lips
of the coward closed at the sound ; and
a bullet passed through his bruin at the
same moment quieted his fears forever.
Another story is told at Aix-la Chap
elle which does not satisfy quite so well
one's ideas of retributive justice. A
fine young man of that city was enrolled
as an apprentice by the ferocious Jikjak
of Merson, and awaited impatiently the
commands of his chief, being
not only of distinguishing himself in
the careers to which his follies had dri
ven him ; but of obtaining money
enough to enable him to marry his
sweetheart. It is not known whether
his weakness was owing to love or wine,
or both together ; but unhappily he di
vulged, one evening the secret of his
destiny to the terrified girl; and the
next morning he was called by Jijak, in
I person to accompany him in an expedi
The youth followed more in shame
than in tear, inwardly resolving to make
up for his harmless treason by gaining
that day a character for courage which
should command the respect of the band.
And yet as he followed his mute and
gloomy conductor, a misgiving at times
came o'er him. There were numerous
other apprentices, he knew in Aix-la
Chapelle, and in the villages through
which they passed. What kind of en
terprize, then, could the renowned chief
tain contemplate, in which he desired
only the assistance of only a single uti
known individual 1 The young man
shivered as they entered the black
shades of the forest, but, when his con
ductor stopped suddenly at a new made
pit resembling a grave, his knees knock

"Perjured traitor!" said the chief,
"say thy paternoster, for you must die!"
"I deserve death," said the appren
tice, " yet try inc once again. To-mor
row the girl will be my wife, and we
shall remove—whenever you command.
Only try me I am as brave as thou!"
Thon bast broken the laws of the
band and therefore thou must die!--
Down on thy knees !—down !" and with
one herculean arm he bent him, by main
forte to the earth, while with the other
he raised the hatchet above his head.

" Reprobate, wilt thou die without a

Original Anecdote
When Dick Aimz first crossed into
York State from the Canada side, he
took lodgings at an Inn in Canandaigua.
A waiting-maid sat at t 11.3 table with
them, and Dick spoke of her as the ser
vant, to the no small scandal of mine
host who told him that in his house ser
vants were called help. Very well ; the
next morning, the whole house was
alarmed by a loud shouting from Dick
of " Help! help ! water ! water I help !"
In nn instant every person in the inn
equal to the task, rushed into Dick's
room with a pail of water. "1 am much
obliged to ye, to be sure," said Dick,
" but here is more than 1 want to shave
with !" " Shave with !" quoth mine
host, " you called help !' and water !'
and we thought the house was on fire."
" Ye told me to call the servant 'help,'
and do you think 1 would cry water
when I meant firer " Give it up,"
said the landlord, as he led elf the line
of buckets.

boy who had just returned from church.
"Because the clergyman says we must

An eccentric clergyman in the Wrest
concluded an impressive charity sermon
in the following language :
"My dear brethren, it has been the

their approbation of what has been said

of clapping, less tumultous and much
more pleasing :—When you leave this
building, clap your hands into your
breeches pockets, and drawing them
out again, clap your money into the box
which is at the door to receive it ; and
may the Lord give it his blessing!"

desired etrect—and the audience hay

happened that the vessel that they were •
to go in could only take four of them. At
length the honest Teague exclaimed--
"Arrah ! I have cast lots to see
who shall remain." But one of the Pad
dies swore it was not jenteel to do that
thing. "You know, Teague" said he;
"that I am an arithmatician, and can work

is a great deal better. But you must
