TUE LONGE'T NIGHT IN A LIFE, ft was one of those old-fashioned win ters, in the days of the °, orges, when th snow by no the ground for weeks, when railways were unknown. and the electric !eh-graph had not been dreamed of save by ihe speculative Countess of London, The mails had been irregular for a month past, and the letter bags which did not retch the post-office had been brought thither with greet ditlicuhy. The sews papers were devoid of all foreign intelli gence, the metropolis knew trailing of the flings of the provinces, end the provinces knew li flu mere of the Ohba of the me• tropilis ; bat the columns of both were crowds d with accitkots from the incleinem cy of the weather, with ie:art rending tic counts of starvation and desti ution. with wonderful ecapes of adventurous travei let's, and of still mere adventurous mail coachmen and guards. Business was al. most at a standstill, nr was only civried on by fiis and starts; families w, re made no easy by the frequen , long silence of then absent inemlo re, and the poor were suifrr iog great misery from cold and Waite.. The smith mad had b blockud up far nearly a month, when a partial thaw al moat caused a public rejoicing; coaches tegan to run, letters to be de.p,ttchud and and delivered, and weatherbound travellers to bare some hope of reaching their dusti nation. Among the first ladies whn undertook the journey from the west of Scotland to Lrndon at this time, was a crash' Miss Stirling, who had, for weeks p.t t, debited to reach the metropolis. Fier friends as. awed her it was a foolhardy attempt, and told her of travellers who had b. en twice, nay three tinies.snowed upon their way to town; but their advice and warnings were of no avail, Miss Stirring's business was urgent, it cnncr•rned others more than her self, and she WIN not one to be deterred by personal discomfort or by physical difficul ties from doing what she thought was right. ahe kept to her pnrpose.,and early in February took her seat in the mail for London, being the only passenger who' was booked for the whole journey. The thaw had continued for some days ; the rands, though heavy. were open; and wi.h the aid of extra horses here and there the first half of the journey was performed pxotty easily, though tediously. " LIBERTY A,ND UNION, NOW AND FOREVER, ONE AND INSEPARABLE. " HUNTINGDON, PA., WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1858, The coachman's expretat:onv were ful filled Within an hour. the distant tink ling 01 the sledge belle was heard. and the lights were seen gleaming afar; they rap idly ad-anced newer and nearer ; and soon a hearty voice wks heard hailing them. A puny of men, with lanterns and slim-1,, came to their as.istance ; a strong aril lt(t ted Mien Stirling from the co ten. and sup ported her trembling steps to a sledge close at h n 1; and almost before she__ knew w true she wag. she found liertell in a large hall, brilliantly lighted by a hltizMg wood fire. NumLors of rosy, glowing, childish faces were ga'hered i.round her, windiers of bright, eager eyes were gazing curious ly tiptoe her, kindly hand. were lucid in rentovinT her wraps. and pleasant voices welcomed her and congratulated her on her escape. 'Ay. ay, Mary.' said her host, addressing his nife •I told you that the sleigh would have plenty of work thin winter, and you see I was right.' •As t•ou always are, uncle,' a merry voice exclaimed. •hVe n'l any at [lllWlree that Uirde Atherton never can be wrong.' •Atherton ! flawtree !' repented Miss Stirling, in some amaze•nent, and uttered in Hurt (manlier voice, •Ellen, Eden Mid• dleton is it possible that on ere here ? A joyful exclamation and a rush ium her arms were the young girl's really reply to this question as she cried, "Uncle Orton. Aunt friary, don'i you know your old friend M is Stirling ? ' Mrs. Atherton fixed her soft blue oyes on the stranger, in whom she could at first scare• ly recognize the bright-haired girl whom she hail not seen fur eighteen years; hut be and by she satisfied herself that, though changed, she was Ellen Stirling still, with the slime sunny smile and the eat,• laughing eyes that had made every on , j uice her iii their sehoolileys.

The sound of the clock striking two woe the first thing that rt ci.lled her to her present life. !ty this tune tire candles were hurn,d down alitin.t to the so. k. r and the fire was dying foto. As she tur,. ed;o fling n"fresh log into the pole. her eyes fell Nor. the dressing glass and in its rtifection she sow or at least she fun. Died she sow, the bed.curtnins move. She stood lor a mint.of wising at the mirror, expecting n reretiti in of the mow nwnt ; hut all was still. and she blunted herself for allowing nervous feats to over come her Still it was an exertion, even of her brave spirit, to approach the bed and withdraw the curtains. She WHO re worded by • finding nothing save the bed clothes folded neatly down; as if inviting her to press the snow white sheets, and a luxurious pile of pillows, that looked most tempting. She could ant resist the mute invitation to rest her wearied limbs. Al lowing herself no time for further doubts or furs, she placed her candle on the mantle piece, and steppe(' into bed. She was very 'trod, her eyes ached with weariness, but sleep seemed to fly from her. Old recollections thronged on her memory; thoughts connected with the business she had still to get through haunted her; and difficulties that had not occurred to her till now, arose up be• fore her. She tons restless and feverish and the vexation of feeling so, made her more wakeful. Perhaps if she were to close the curtains between her and the fire she 'nigh. ho better able to sleep— the flickering light disturbed her, and the moonbeams stealing between the window curtains cast ghostly shadows on the So, she carefully shut out the light on that side, and turned spun to sleep wilier she had or had not quite lost consciousness oh-. could not well remem , her hut she w.is soon thoroughly amiss• ed by fee ing the b. d heave under her.— She started op, nod awaited with a ben. tag limirt a repetition of the movement hut it did not come. It must hove been a remit] of the nervous fancies which had twice assailed her already that night.— Laying he• hitl once more on the pillow she ilm,ritiined to control her groundless Again she started up ! This time there could be no doubt; the bed had had heaved more than once. accoinpnnied ny n strange gurgling sound, as if of a creature in pain. Leaning 00 her elbow she fisierienett with that intensity of fear which tiesires, slalom as much as it dreads a recurrence of the snuad that caused it. It came notin followed bye loud rustling muse, as &some heavy body were drag gt.d trout under the 'bed in the direction of the fire. She longed to call out for help, but her tongue chive to the roof of her mouth, and the pulses in her templet throbbed until she felt as if their painful beating sounded in the silence of the night like the loud tick of n clock. The unseen thing dragged itself along until it reached the hearth rug, where it flung itself down with violence. As it did so. she heard the clank, 01 n ch'n. Her breath came less painfully as she heard it, for it occurred to her that the creature might be nothing worse than the house dog, who, having broken his chnin, had I sought shelter beneath the bed in the warm rosin. Even tbis notice was disagreeable enough but it, was as nothing to the vague Irmor which km' hitherto up. pressed her She persuaded herself that if she lay quit • quiet 110 hurts would hap pen to her. nod the night would $OOll pass over. Thus reasoning, she laid herself down again. By and. 4 the creature began to snore, and tt struck her feverish fancy that the stoning was mot like that of a flog. After little time, she raised herself gently. and with trembling hands drew back tin inch or two of the curtain, and peered out, think ing that any certoin'y was better than such terrible suspens ~ She looked to wards the fire•place. and there, sure e nough, the huge creature lay—a brown, bury mass, but of what shape it wits in. possible to devine, so fitful wits the light, mid so strangely was it coiled up on the hearth.rue By•ntid by it began to stretch itself out, to open its e) es, which shone in the flickering roy of the fire,and to raise its paws above its hoary head. Good God ! those are not intws ! They are human hands.; and dangling from the wrists hang tragments of broken ebony ! A chill of horror froze Ellen Stirling's veins, as a flash of the expiring fire showed her this clearly—far too clearly—and the coitv!ction seized upon her mind that she wits shut up woh as escapeil convict. An inward invocat trot to Heaven for aid rose lonia hi•r heart, as with whole force of her intellect sne endeavored to survey the danger of her position, and to thick of the most persuasive words she could' use to the 'shut into whose power Al had so strangely fallen: For the present, howev. . er. she must be still, very still; she mart ~,,,„, nn movement to betray herself; nod perhaps he might overlook her presence mitil daylight mime, and with it possible help Tfie night must be far spent; she must wait. end hope. :Me had not to wait long. The creature moved again—stood upright—stageree to wards the bed. For one moment—one dreadful moment—she saw his face, his • pale pinched features, his easing eyes, his i black biistling hair; but thank God ! he did not zee her. She shrunk behind the curtains; he advanced to the bed slowly. hesitatingly, and ,he clanking sound of the broken chains fell menncingly on her ear. He laid his har.ds upon the curtains, and for a few moments fumbled to find the open. ing. These mowing were all to all to Ellen Stir ling. hespair sharpened her senses; she found that the other side of the bed was not set so close against the wall but that she could pass between. Into the -narrow space between, she contrived to slip noiselessly. She had barely acconiplished the difit cult font, and sheltered herself behind the curtains. when the erratum flung itself on the bed, and drawing the bed clothes arount him, nitric! a sound more like the whin. eying of a horse than the laugh of a human being. Fur some little time Miss Stirling stood in her narrow hiding place, trembling with cold end terror. fearful lest some unguar ded movement should betray her, and bring down on hera fate she dared not contemplate. She lifted up her heart in prayer for courage; and when her com posure liaj in same degree returned, it oc curred to ber that if she could but: reach the window, she might from that position, possibly, attract the attention of some pass ers-by", and be released frem het . terrible durance. Very cautiously she attempted the per ilous experiment; her bare feet moved noiselessly across the floor, and a friendly riy of moonlight guided her safely towards the window. As she put oat her hands towards the curtains, her heart gave a fresh hound of terror, for it came in contact with something soft and warm. At length, how ever, she remembered 'lint she had flung down her fur cloak in that spot, and it was mercy to come upon it now, when she VMS chilled to the bone. She wrapped it around her and reached the window with out further adventure, or any alarm from the occupant of the bed; whose heavy reg ular breathing gave assurance that he was now sound asleep. This was some. com fort, and she greatly needed it. The look nut from the window was anything but inspiriting. The stars still shone peace fully on the sleeping earth: the 'noon still showed her pallid visage; not a sight or pound presaged dawn, and after long listen ing is vain for any sign of life in the outer world, she heard the stable clock strike four. Only four! She felt as if it were impossible to sur. rive another hour of terror such ns she had just passed through. Wes there no hope? None. Sho tried to support herself against the window frame, but her lirst touch caused it to shake and creak in n manner that accused to her smilingly loud; she fancied that the creature moved uneasily on its bed at the sound. Drops of agony fell from her brow as minute slier minute wore heavily on; ever and anon a rustle of the bed clothes, or a slight clank of the manac led hands, sent a renewed chill to her heart. The clock struck five. Still all without was silent. Suddenly a man's whistle was heard in the court, and the driver of the mail coach, lantern in hand, crossed the yard toTards the pavil lion. Would to God she could cull to him or in any tvny attract his nitration; but she dared not make the slightest sound. He looked up at the window against which he almost bru.hed in priming; and the light he held flashed on Miss Stirling's crouching figure. He paused, looked again, and seemed about to speak, when s h e ha s tily toad.' signs that he should be silent, but seek assistance at the house.
