The terrible storm which ravaged the coast of Norway od the 12th of October, 1717, was remembered in that country ling alter the band of time and the industry of man had ob literated the mark? of its fury. As sadden a? it wan tremendous, it aroso after several weeks of settled weather, and having wrought more havoc in a few hours than ordinary tempests effect in days. it subsided with corresponding rapidity, leaving upon the miuds of the peas ants who witnessed its terrors a singular itn preseion with regard to its origin. For yearn, the herdsmen of that rugged land, and the sailors of that dangerous sea, believed that the dreadful storm, which had swept away sheep and Bhepherd amid the ruin of house and fold, and nad dashed the largest craft upon the rocks that received the shattered fishing boats, was caused by a sadden exer tion amoDg the demons cf the Pole, who, for bidden by the mandate of lien , en to enter earth while it shall move in its appointed or bit, are perpetually laboring to di.-turb its charmed circle, that they may rush in to havoc by land and by sea Strange tales are told of tho events of that fatal day, and cf the night which ensued; and the following legend, relating to one of tho voyagers who suffered in the storm, bears s me evidence of tho feeling with which the Norwegians regarded so terrible a visitttion? a fueling with which is mingled some vague recollection of the time when Norway itself was one of tho most unfortunato of the stakes in the gamo played by the great continental powers. The tempest was rapidly subsiding as dusk drew on, but the cessation of the violent tur moil brought no comfort to the scanty crew of tho ill fated ship Drontheim, which had sailed from tho port of that name on the preceding day, and met the wrath of the storm in full career. She bad been bound for France; but at the time we speak of, she was a naked and helpless hull, drifting whither the caprice of tho wind, which seemed to blow from all Joints of the compass at once, choose to hurry er. She was now makiog her rapid but in voluntary course northward.*; but to th? few human beings who yet clur.g to bcr decks, the state of her shattered sides, through which the water was forcing its way at twenty wounds, left it a matter ol hideous con em where they mig'-tmcct the certain fate whica uwaited them. It was cbvioua that many minutes could not elapre before the vo^sol and all she contained should be mucked into the troubled abyss on which sho yet floated, Iler smaller boats had long since been carried away by a burst of tho storm, which, iturling three or four monster waves across her deck, had swept every moveablo thing from her surface, in cluding more than one-third of the wretched crew In the next moment, one of terrified madness, tho survivors had crowded tho boat, which hardly touched 'he foaming billows ero it was swamped, and wont down with cvory soul it bore Not a dozen men remained on the fated vessel, when the sudden and horri ble change in motion which announced the foundering of a ship, took place, she ceased to make way?the violent agitation which had for hours rendered it nearly impossible to stand upon her deck was exchanged for a sudden lurch, followed by a second aud third ; and then tho hideous ioar of the waters rushing in on every hand, told the frantic crew that all hope was over. Amid the loud and agitated prayers ol" a few, ana the tdasclmmous ravings of the rest, the wave.- of the Northern boa closed over the Drontheim for ever As the vortex oaused by the sinking of the ship disappeared ono man .'ilone w.ib ttrug gling in tho water in the energy of despair. Ilis rich dress rather encumbcrcd his move ments, but he was in tho prime of manhood, and a practised swimmer, and wa< putting furth his full strength, in the hope of finding st mo relic of the ship on which to float for the chance of life, But this hopo waxed fainter with his limbs, for the gathering dusk was rapidly reducing his chance of discovering any object around bim, and the waves still ran too high and angrily to allow him achanco of endurance much longer, lie still swam, but his despair was almost total, when he dis cerned a dark body a lew yards distant, lie struck vigorously forward, and. to his inex pressible relief, discovered that it was a small raft, on which a human body was lying. A succession of violent strokes, now animated by renewed hope, brought hiuito its side, and i in a moment or two, the Count do Burigny was clinging to the buoyant mass When he had somewhat recovered his breath, bis next effort wu tj mount upou the rait itself; but as he mado the attempt, the figure which ulready occupicd it arose to a sitting posture, and gently repulsed him. Be ' fore he could speak, it addressed him in a pleasing voice, which, however, was piercing enough to make itself distinctiy heard amid the dashing waters? " Stay, my son; you are weloomo to all tho support my raft will afford you, but for both of us to mount would entail destruction on both.'' " Father," gapped the count, "whoever you may bo, you will turely assist in saving my life." "Truly, my son," returned the other voice, " you opply for help at a most unreasonable time, But I am bound at least to succor you with my advice ; aud I therefore advi^o you to swim for some rocks which are distant about a quarter of a league, in the direction of which I am pointing. They are always above water, and in the morning you will cer tainly be discovered by somo vessel ?? Thanks, father, ' replied the count, " but I would rather cling here, with the certainty of being safe for a moment, than again run tue risk of my life in a struggle with the waves for a chance of reaching some rocks I may not be able to climb " "Such is the wisdom of man"' said tho other, " ever oonfident in the present, ever distrustful of the future. But 1 tell you, my son, that yon rocks are easily accessible, and that if you strike away now you are sate "Safe or not, father, I remain here; and I therefore entreat you, if you have the means, to steer us in search of this same rocky plat lorm?we shall have the *aln?faction of buug saved together " _ , " I am on my own course, my son. and I ad vise you not to keep my company," said the other voice The words induced the count to examine bis com pardon as closely as possible, but the fast faiiing twilight only enabled hliu to discern a figure in a priest's rcbe, the hoo> of which effectually shrouded the features oi the wearer. ? ,, .. .. "You speak strangelyfather, said tho count; " but I hold my intention, tervently wishing I had something easier tj hold, tor my fingers are numbed, and this wood is slip nAWW J I . " I have warned you, my bod ; but if you insist on remaining I will do what I can to ai The figure seemed engaged with hisdrew for a moment. Tho next, a small but in * ly bright red light appeared by its side, illu minating the raft, the two speakers, and ?the surrounding waters with a lustre that 8e6U0 supernatural As roon as the count could^re oover from the effect upou his oyes ho ? k scrutinised the face of tho other, w > thrown back his hood and was . lamp, containing the light, into the wood of the raft.

Thanks, father," said tho count, as the priest, gradually crept towards hiai, drew the rope, which he had taken from his own waist, under the armi of the former, and attaching one end to a ring in the woodwork, pushed tho cord peroral time around the body of the count, and at length secured him so effectual ly to the raft that be floated without the least necessity for exertion. The j riest then regained his scat in the centre, and f?r some minutes they were silent. The count was the ?rtt to speak. " I did not ace you, father, among us in the unfortunate Drontbiem," he said. " I remained below at prayer, my son, until tarrying became presumption I then hurled this raft upon the billows, and departed upon my mission " 44 Again you Fpeak mysteriously, my father Might one know what the mission m*y be which keeps a man on a raft, in the middle of tho mighty ocean, as calm as if he were at vespers in his own church7" The priest smiled 14 You forget, my ?on? that virtue is ulways tranquil iu the hour of trial; and you forget, too, a very important difference in our situations." *' By no mean?," said the ccuit, "I am aware that I nm chilling in ths water, while you arc apparently at ease in a cloak agaiuat which I see the water strike in vain I would suggest to you that the virtue you speak of c>uld give a nobler proof of its effi-acy, wore V-. to change places for an hour " '-Nay, my son, that idea is selfish and unworthy I impose a penance on you f >p having entertained it. and enjoin you to walk 8n hour, fasting up'?n the ensuing morning." " I pray I may do so." said DaBurig ry ; ncd I entreat you to double the ponance. if thereby you can double tho chance of my performing it " ? Jest not, my son ; but remember that you are still in a situation of great danger; a wave may dash your head against the raft, or may snap the cord which holds you to it, and in either case your own is desperate. It would rather become you to make a confession, and receive absolution as you may." " I have no objection, father, the less that I have noth'ng else to do; but I give you fair warning thai you will have to wait for your dues till wo get to land " 44 llard hearted, careless scoffer! what if that should cot be so certain ?" 41 Then so much the better for tho confes-f r, father '* said the count, whose natural au la city did not desert him even in that h- ur 44 And how much for the penitent son? asked tho priest sternly 4* But proj^ei ; and that your wretched soul may coin* the sooner to peace, I will save you the narration cf a life of crime, by apprising you that I know you " 41 By your mode of describing my history, 1 think you do," s ?id the other. ?* I need not t<;ll you that I am the Count <?uillaume do Burigny, a faithful subject of his Mo?t Chris tian Majesty ?'

You laugh." 4 1 do." said the count, 44 though Heaven knows, this is no place for mirth. You. who have such unexceptionable information up^n those matters, are doubtless aware that the cup you speak of is mixed." 44 And in a woman's hanl that it may be presented. Tho Count de Buritrny thirk? he can safely return to his master, while his beautiful daughter remains to enforce, by blandishment aud noile, the dark lesson be has tried to tcach.

In lieu of the foaming and dashing billows, the sea bad be come as calm as a mountain lake. The roar of tho waves was hushed, but in its stead feai arisen a lew, droning, and distant sound, which brought with it a fear the mind owned, but could not explain. The raft had hittiorto been carried swiftly along. but its speed was now increased teufold. The consternation of tho count became evident, but to all his ex clamations the prieft gave no answer That strange droning sound grew gradually louder, but the ear struggled in vain to discover how it was composed. Still, the raft hurried on with lightning speed. Darkness was all around it, save the bright red gleam of the priest s lamp. Suddenly the thought of bis daughter le crosted the count's brain. He gasjed? fcr the swiftness cf their course now rtndjrtd speaking difficult? 44 Father ! I implore you, what know y u of Eugenia ?" it Once more the priest pointed silently to the water, and as tho count's eye followed the motion, he beheld a f-rm whirling by bis aide in the current, the intense fierceness ot whieh rendered the surface smooth as glass. There was the torpso of a pale and beauUft* girl, lovely even in death L >Dg and golden locks clustered around her neck and shoulder*, but the locks were wet and tangled, and the ala baster skin was becoming blue with exposure t, tho water. The eyes were closed?it was well they were so. That form was following the raft ; but the increasing velocity of th latter left the corpse behind in ? tbat moment bad sufficed to hej.f?'h" {* recognise his daughter He uttered no word, but gated steadily at the priest. The terrible and indescribable sound had now increased to a roar, w^wh ww d have rendered the voice inaudible at the shortest distance. The speed of the raft was now ter rible ? yet it neither swerved nor*wayel, and the priest sat unmoved, returning tha stupeied irnze of the couut. Suddenly one aide.of t-e r.ift became depressed, and iu that position il oontiuued its furious carecr. The roar hid uow become more hideous than any noiee which can be conceived, and yet it was nature which baffled the ear. lhe priest rote slowly to his feet, and preserving his balance, apparently unconscious of the frightful1 slope ot the hurrying raft, he leaned to De J and in low tone, which in spite of tfce horrtbl noite around, carried the full dreadful words to the count'* understanding " We are in the Maelstrom htfl Tk.? indeed In that drea ? mn TH* WHmTSTAB.
