A sinill hainlet rested uj>oi4 tho side of one of the lofty mountain* of the Julian Alps, which thcucc towering aloft, concealed from view its snow-crowned peak urn.i the encir cling clouds of night. Three persons stiil lingered around the scanty fire in the cuecrlea.- kitchcu of the inn. It was midnight. Silence had fallen upou thorn as they gated on the decaying embers which now blazed up, then sank a^ain. send* ii.g forth no warmth, nor creating any Sound indicative of their presence, save now and then a sharp crackling aj the landlord stirrod thorn up They smoked their pipes in a med'? t.itive look peculiar to those who you haveju-t h-ard. as they had, a wild aud fearful narra tive. The narrator, and the most remarkable of the three, was a stranger, only just arrived in the vicinity after some years of foreign travel.

The fierce rays of a tropic sun had bronzed his complexion, and constant farnil j iarity with danger had be towed upju him the , veoklsss undaunted air of ? warrior not un ! u-ed to scenes of blood and strife Yet the I soldier s manly frankness was wanting: for | in the quick glancing eve aud compressed lips might be seen the workings of a mind capable ; of devising any thin? subtile and villainous, allied to tne resolution necessary for the exe cution of any of his schemes. ??

None of the horrible tales of hi-; native land seemed capable of receiving any credit in the granger's mind, for iu the glance of recogni tion which passed?unheeded by their com panion?between the old host and himself, the causo of his conduct became evident, since s iiae plot seemed hatchiug between them which c uld bring no good to the other?who was a miller?as he wa^ the person imposed upon. ?' I'll tell you what, my worthy friend," said the host, interrupting their continued discussion, '? 'tis full time to part; so, my good ria 1.3. canst take a hint ?'Why, yes,"' said the m'ilcr. in an uncer tain tune, as though he doubted whether to go or remain ; but rising, he walked to the win d"'V and looked oat upon the sky, then with a coM shudder he closed the casement and re turning to the hearth, sat down in silence *?

There re those who will u'ter their diabe lief of something they pretend to consider ri diculous, who, when alone in some wild glen, or trackless forest, will ponder on tho ubject, iu spite of their wish to think of something less fearful, still, from very tear. they owe to themselves their bcliet iu what they have heard, and thus hope to exorcise the phantom which haunts their minds. Such wa? tue mil ler. and frightful were the images which filled his imagination as he jursucd his mountain path, lie became convinced of v.'hat he before deuied, and from every rock aad hillock, from every bush and tree, he expected some ttwiul spirit to appear aud overwhelm him in his wrath. His nature wa* ficroo and tiory; though iu his cooler moments he had been styled cow srdiy, and even justly so, yet. when aroused by an imagined injury, he could, like many others in the world, perform foats tu the im Iiuhe of the moment, which, when talm. he tad not the heart even to attempt, lie was quick and vindictive, and it was always as Convenient for him to forget a f.ivor, as it was natural for him to remember an iiJury, lie was alive to suspicion and jealou-y, and his Character wa- an exception to the national one. he was hated and despised hy all Save One sweet soul, who seemed to iove him most when most she saw him spurred.

When passion had endowed him with more than his usual strength and courage, and he burst out with threats aud imprecations against some neighbor, she, poor, ill-used crca ture, would cling to bis neck, his arms, his Ik.ie4s, praying bim to be calm, an I detiiuing him, till reason had again assumed her ern Eire.
