One of these annual meetings, souse
years since, was attended by Ermann Sa
i, a youth of about twenty, the only
son of an extensive land proprietor, aid
who was admitted, by even his nearest ri
vals, tube the best shot in his native vil
The winter had set
,in early, with unu
sual severity ; and Ermann, who had sev
eral leagues to travel in his sledge, sur
rounded himself with various defences of
fur, which he more than shared with a
large rough hound at Isis feet—an animal
of such uncouth form that none but a lo
ver's eye could have traced attraction
therein, or have seen the necessity of guar
d derby a sable pelisse. But Ermann
was . a lover: the sagacious attached Slanth
was a luve.gift from Minna Zabiuski, the
coquettish love of Ermann ; and thus there
i s no more to be slid respecting deviations
from plain “comtnon sense."
On arriving at the town, he proceeded
to the square where tlw a....01.11311”.te was
generally. held ; and here he found every
thing in animated confusion. It liad just
been proclaimed that, instead of the usual
mark shooting, there was to be a wolf hunt
in .a forest at some distance; the early se
verity of the winter had forced the wolves
to approach the town, and they had con,'
!nutted great devastation on the surrounding
farms, escaping ere morning to the forest;
the prizes, therefore, would he awarded
to those most skillful in destroying the
depredator.. • I
This exchange from mechanical to ani•
mated sport excited the spirits of the young
men, wlio sot forth in a gallant baud ; and
they did not return from their fatiguing
chase, until the red glow of sunset lighted
up the savage trophies of their success,
which they bore in triumph to the square,
where the prizes were to be awarded.
This had been no ordinary day for the
young Ermann ; during the morning he
had conversed some time with Minna, and
she had made ono of her capricious decis
ions us to visiting his mother's house for a
week, dependant on,Erinann bearing away
the third prize. The prospect of success
was nut very flattering, as he had to con
tend against so many more practical men
than himself. But almost every one has,
at some time in his life, a brief inspiration
through powerful feelings, which makes
men "surpass themselves," and to which
they afterwards look back with calm won
der at the sudden power they momentarily
commanded. Ermann felt that the time
of his marriage would be decided if the co
qucttish Minna were once under his moth
er's Tool: and, with this inspiration, he
did wonder in the field and forest. Heed
less of danger, %, and the rough dog were
ever pressing lemma ; and, after each
volley fired at the retresiing pack of the
wolves, Ernialin's gun was loaded again
with magic promptitude, and. °se of the
savages generally brought down.
When the band returned to the s rob, ve ,
and the trophies were examined, Erinann'e:

felt the consequence of his over-exertion ;
the poor dog had not escaped unharmed
from the throes of the wolves, and be' lay
stiff and weary at his master's feet ; even
the gaily-caprisoned horse showed indica

he had been driven to the forest ; so the
trio pursued their way very differently

About two leagues from town, Ermann

The servants belonging to Ermann's fa- ,

bells at night in the court before the house

intention of remaining in the tot;n until

there beheld a wretched exhausted horse,
fallen in the harness of an apparently
empty sledge. On moving the sable pet.
isse in the letter, they discovered the mo
tionless form of Minna Zabinski. During
the day she recovered from the heavy
swoon, but all remembrance was gone; nor
was it until night came, and the cold
beams of moonlight brought back the late
scene of horror which she witnessed by
its beams, that the agonizing recollections
