in February took her seat in the mail for

The thaw had continued for some days ;

A joyful exclamation and a rush ium
her arms were the young girl's really reply
to this question as she cried, "Uncle

Mrs. Atherton fixed her soft blue oyes
on the stranger, in whom she could at first

She stood lor a mint.of wising at the
mirror, expecting n reretiti in of the mow

herself for allowing nervous feats to over

of her brave spirit, to approach the bed
and withdraw the curtains. She WHO re

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

It came notin followed bye loud rustling

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

if she lay quit • quiet 110 hurts would hap

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

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

: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.

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
