WASHINGTON, HE). C.. FRIDAY, APRIL 10, 1857 THE WILD KNIGHT; Or. The Ink now ii Crusader. .4 TmU ?/ dtrmarti/ in Day t of the Empire. [coiTi*rr.i> **o* oca last ] A* the knight thu? spoke he raised the small white band to his lips, and, as ha imprinted his tlrst kiss tbereou, Agnes of I.nxemberg smiled. Those were days when true men and maidens spent uot loug hours in senseless flirtation. nor tried to conceil the generous emotions of the Iteart. If the thought was right it was spoken. So from that hour tne Knight of the Eagle knew that he was welcomed by the only maiden who had ever won his heart. The emotion was a strange one. aod under its influence his heart grew light and joyous and bis arm stronger. As so?>n as possible the two Crusaders put on their armor, and then went out into the court. w:h?*reihey found Robert and Bernard with the honwn all caparisoned ; and from the porter they learned that Von Metzinger was waitiug an an swer from him. But jusf ?s the porter spoke the voice of the robber knight was heard in loud an gry tow*; ?' Hallo, within there, thou creoping porter. What is the answer of thy mistress? Will she give up the golden calves, or must we take all of them ?" ?? Ok. rmbie sirs," spoke the old porter, tremb ling from bead to foot, "only last wsek Sir Otto and his erew robbed the Couveut of at. Mary, of Harbronn, carried off all the gold and silver, and killed four armed peasants, who had come up to help defend the place !" '? *av ye so ? rhen i' faith, we'll send them off howling now. Where is therea loop-hole through which I can count the villains ?" The porter led the way to the small wicket in which (here was a small piece of chain netting. Through this the Black Knight could count the robbers. There were two knights and fourteen men-at-arms?the latter on foot, and armed with cnns-bows and swords, and wearing the usual armor of the fi?ot soldiers of the period?round shell caps of iroa. with deep capes oehind ; cuir asses of bra*, with a joint at the neck, thus sup plying the place of a gorget; but no liressarts or cuiskes. They were stout looking fellows, and 1 om what our hero could see of their faces he would have judged them to be just fit for some such work Sir Otto was a stoyt. powerful man, and as he now wore hi* visor up the crusader could see that he had a bold, had look. The oth er kutght, the portersaid. was Sir John von Main hardt; and that knight our crusaders kuew had t*-en placed under the ban of the empire for his evil need, but particularly for having robbed the Archbishop of Mayence. ' ?? Call out our men," said the unknown, "and have them arranged in the court here to be ready for any who may chance to dodge in. Now, Sir Kngelbert, we will out upon them, white Robert and Bernard follow to scatter the hirelings." Thus speaking the Black Knight closed his V Hor. and having loosened his axe. and couched his ianre. he railed upon the porter to throw bark (tie gate A? the way was thus opened, six ? if the men at arms were bringing up a heavy log with which thev meant to tcatter down the wick et. The movement of s*?r Otto and his compan ion. when they beheld the unexpected presence, was one of astonishment; bat ere they could be tray mach. enaction our hero spoke : ? Hour aow, Sir Knights?what would ye li-re *.'y ?? Who are you that dare question Otto of Metz inger V the robber retorted. J ust stand where you are and I'll ride thee down as 1 would a pray ing nun.*' As Sir Otto spoke he gatheered up his rein, and put spurs to his horse : and with,his impious bat He rry of?spoils to tkt tnig kty?bedash ed on. ?? fiwi ami St. Fulc??.'*' shouted the Unknown, as he Uraeed himself for the shock. He did not move troia the place where he stood. He only bent a keen eye upon the robber, and set his lance for the irna'd. He felt the power of a giaat In nis good right arm, and full well he knew that the om omiug knight only rushed upon defeat. He bad received too mauy charges to miss hia mark n<?w; even bis horse had been #o thorough ly traim-d that a single word was sufficient for its guidance. With a firm hand the Black Eagle held his lance, and as the robljer rame dashing upon him I a quickly-spoken word caused his horse to leap upon on siae, and at the saan<3 moment his lance, with a movement almost imperceptible, turned I the poiat of-the robber's weapon over the right shoulder. while the steel heaa of bi? own spear | caught Sir Otto's helm jnst below the visor and roll-d him from his horse upon the ground. Al most at the same moment Sir Johu von Maiu hirdt fell lieneath the stroke of Engelbert. The Unknown leaped from his saddle, and placed his sword at the throat of the fallen knight !" '?Now yield thee. rerre-Bt knight!" " But to whom'" asked Otto, in struggling tones. ?? To the Slack Eaglt of PaJe*ti*tsbonted our hero. ?*.>/irrygasped the vanquished man " Why didn't you tell me so Bat do you yield "Yes!"' " And if I spare thee, wilt thou give me thine oath that thou wilt not trouble thisplace again ?" ?? The terms are hard." ?? But is not life valuable ? Remember?I would kill thee as quickly as 1 would any other robber!" ?? Snare me ! 1 promise." ?' Then upon thy knees and take the oath. That Is the ordeal." Sir Otto hesitated a while, but at length he got upon his knees, aud with the cross of the crusa der's sword Iwfore him. he took the prescribed oat h ?? Well douc ! Hir Otto von Metzinger. Now call thy robber crew off. and go in search of some uiore legitimate game." In the meantime the two esquires had been do ing a heavy work among the men-a-ariu*. Rob ert of SwihgenhoflVn was like a wild bull among them. while Bernard stalked about like a stork among f/ogs. Their long experience against the SaracenesLad given tb<*m notions of combat of which thetr huddling adversaries knew nothing. | Tnree of the robl?er retainers were slain outright, j while most of the others were either senseless | np?>n the ground or crawling away with cracked J ami aching beads. Sir John von Mainha-dt. as soon as he knew who his captor was. readily took the same oath Cut his companion had taken, and then they were .allowed to depart; though ere they did so tne lat- i t.-r poured oat his enmity and threats profusely. ? By the holy host. Sir Crusaders, you have ventured intoa'ne*t of hornets, as you shall find to your cost. If yon get out of these mountains with a whole skin you'll be fortunate !*r With this threat upon his lip?, the robber knight turned to where his men-at-arms were ^earch:ng for their wnses. and ere long the whole t arty r<?d~ off?all save the three dead one*, their bodies being left for the monks to dispose of. Blessings, deep and sincere, were shower* d upon the two crusaders when they returned to the ??jBvent: and when they beard of the oath they bad made the marauders take, the abbess could uot ?i>eak her gratitude. A hearty breakfast was eaten, and afier this the u ? knights signified their intention iff departing The storm of the previous evening liad passed a way. and the air of the spring morning was fre>h aud flagrant. ? ? l>> y<>u go near S'uttg.irt f" tlui abbess asked ?? Ibrectly thithv-r," the Blark Knight answered. ' Th d you will easily reach it before dark if y >ur horses are strong.*' '? Certainly." ?? I have a favor to ask of thee," the abbess re sumed. addressing him of tlie Eagle. " The l.ady Agues has in*? for several days watching for some 1 .ends who had promis?d to come and condnrt her to Stuttgart, w ue.e she wonld go to see her "???u-,in'?, C instance of Baden, aud Blanche of Wurbmburg.

"I understand." retu ?ed the ebheei with a smile ; aud thus speaking *he turned away Ere long Agnes voa Lnxembury mtr'ed tbe keej.ing-rootn, all prepared for her joumev and Ijoth tne knights started as they beheld her Strang*- beauty wtien thus arrayed. Her riding, robe of purpie velvet was bordered with wold and the jaunty velvet cap, with its drooping o% trich plTme^ cist a warm glow upon her face that was like a Uaio She wore a small dagger in her ginlle. and in her hand she carried a light whip. Her home, a noble barb, with a mixture of the Arabian in its veins, manifested the utmost delight when he saw his mistress approach ; and when she had been assisted to her saddle, the pleased animal capered about with unmistakable manifestations of joy." 44 Now. mind you,'' said the abbess, once more addressing the black Knight. " until yon reach the castle of Everhard the Lady Agnes Is my charge to von." '? Then the Wild Knight has some control over her," the Black Eagle said, in a tone so low that the imiden could not hear it. A dark shade rested upon the face of the ab l?ess. and a slight shudder passed through her frame as she replied? ?? Ye*, he is her guardian, made so by my brother in hit last will. But 1 have authority nntv " Once more our hero promised to watch well his charge, and then the abbes* turned to her niece. There were a few sincere blessings?a kiss?a cheerful farewell?and then the party rode away. r ' After the laps of several hours, as a shoft si lence ensued, the Crusader gazed upou his fair companion with an earnest, plavful look. She looked up and met his gaze, and a warm glow suffused her face. She knew not that he was looking upon her, or she would not have gazed up then, for her eyes were beaming with the tale of love, and she knew it. And a less interested person than herself, and one with less percep tion, could not have failed to see that the knight's g?e was one of pure, devoted affection. It was a moment of strange emotions. Each had detected the other in the act of pouring out the silent language of love. The kntght was the first to speak. '? Gentle lady," he said in a tone made rich and musical by the deep feeling that sustained 't, "why should two honorable people, whom fate has thrown together, hide the deepest, holi est emotions of their souls? I will not hide mine. ^ on shall not say I could look what 1 dared not speak. Agnes of Luxemburg, I love thee with the whole strength of my heart, and with the undivided power of my heart's first love. Thou art the first maiden who ever awuke the sweet whisper in my soul, and to thee I give my poor heart with all its hopes, its aspirations and its joys. I trust I have not offended." For some moments the fair girl gazed down on the arching neck of her steed without speaking She trembled violently, for there was a mighty struggle iu h^r soul. "Alas:" she at length uttered, raising her moistened eyes to her companion's face, "would that my love and my duty were united." How, lady ? Speak plainly, I would beseech thee." ?? Knowest thou not that my father willed that I should wed with the Count of Baden ?" I knew he had so toi<htd. Did he lay the command upon thee. '? He never commanded me, sir. His wish was always my law When he expressed to me his desire, he knew if it were in my power to do it his desire would be accomplished." "But thy love, lady ? ' '? Thou art the first man who ever won iny young heart. Sec?1 am frank, because thou hast heen." " Bless thee ! gentle Agnes?bless thee forever. Thou dost love ine, then?"' " With all my heart!" " Then see ? \Ve still have ground for hope. If til** Lord of Bitiifn be an hononiblc innn He will not surely hold thee to a union from which love I must ever be absent. He would not have such a ! wife if he could." ;? Ah, you know him not!?' said Agnes, with a , slight shake of the head. "Nor do you know the man my father placed over me .-is my guardian. I Alas ! they have no hearts of love or sympathy." 1 he knight gazed upon his companion as she ; spoke, and when she ceased speaking he l>ow?*d his head There was a cloud upon his brow, and j his lips were compressed; yet he seemed more t worked upon by some firm purpose of his own than by any fears of the lowers of others. When j be again raised his head his bright eye beamed t with more than ordinary meaning. ;< Gentle Agnes," he said. " love me?love ine well?love me as I love thee?and leave the rest to me. In this universe of good there must he power enough to overcome all evil, if it could only be I properly applied; and so why may we not hope that right and justice shall triumph here ?" "My love 1 cannot control," the maiden an swered. ?? Were I never to see thee again, from this hour my heart eould never give up thine im I age?my soul could never forget this, its first holy i love As true as I live I apeak fiankly and truth ! fully now Were the painful clause removed; 6 'uld the barrier be broke.i down?honorably so l would place my hand within thine own, and be ; thin?* forever! The noble knight raised his hand to his cheek ! and brushed away a tear, and when he spoke his voice was low and sweet. 44 Among the blessings of God. and standing serond only to the pure faith of the tried Chris tian, is bright, sunny hope. Let us cling to It." Half the afternoon had passed away, and-the travelers had just entered uport a broad table of i level land, when Engelbert s horse, which was I ahead. suddenly stopped and placed his nose to [ the ground ; and in a moment more he raised bis ( head and gave a wild, startling snort. 4*Ah?that means that we are to meet some body," said the Black Knight, as Agnes gazed ? inquiringly towards him. t or a moment an expression of fear dwelt upon the maiden's face; but it quickly passed away. 44 We have nothing to fear, surely-," the Knight resumed. 44 If they be robbers we have nothing to lose, and if they be not robbers they must be flrlends. Yet I'll don my casque ana take my shield, for war sometimes comes when we least eiuect it." As he thus spoke he exchanged his velvet cap for the black steel helm with its triple plume, and then calling to bis esquire, betook his shield. Just as Engelbert had made the same arrange ment a party of three knights appeared upon the opposite side of the plain, whicu was nearly half a mile distant. As the distance became less an exclamation of fear dropped from Agncs's lips, and when her companion looked upon her, he found her pale and trembling. " What is it!" be asked, eagerly. *? The Count of Bade*.'" she uttered. 44 The Count * Which one."' " He that ride* upon the right hand?the short , est one." " And do you kuow who are those other two"' Agnes loosed a few moments, and then she le I plfred? I "Aye?they are two of the most villainous knights that ever broke knightly vows. There j is Mir Frederick von Bondorf, who came from Bavaria to save his head from the law; and Sir ; Marco Montani. a crafty, bloody, and unscrupu ! lous Italian. They are the Count's tools, and do j his bidding for hire. ?? They look like scout knights," said the Ea ? gle. hair to himself. " And so they are," responded Agnes. '? But you tremble, dearest." 44 Ave?the Count may be on his way to Saint Fulvla." 44 Ha I For thee ! Now I see. And why should he have come ? Think you Everbard sept him?" The maiden pondered a few moment* ere she replied, and duiing her hesitation the Knight stopped. 4> I'll tell thee all in afew words,"she at length said. " and thus save thy questions. My guardian will do much for the Count of Baden. He would not for worlds directly do a deed to harm me ; yet he looks upon my marriage with the Count as a fixed fhet, and be will help It on. Thrice have I refused to go to Baden's stout castle of Heidel berg, and Rudolf has sworn that he would take j me to his dwelling by force, if I would not go ' otherwise. The last time I saw iny guardian, he i told me,iu a laughing niood?he laughed because he thinks my coyness of the Count only the result j at whim; lie does not know that I despise him? ' 1m* told iiie to lieware of Rudolf of Baden, for that be mrant to kidnap me on the first opportunity. ' So 1 think he has come now for that purpose." The new-coiner* were now within a few rods, and as the Count of Baden recognized Agnes, he pbt spurs to his horse. Ashe did so the Unknown diopi?ed his vizor, and secrHlv loosened the trap pings of his battle-axe. He of Baden was in full armor, only he wore his vizor up. '? Ha?my little truant ?" the Count cried, as he drew up a few yards oft'. 441 havw found thee most opportunely 1 was after thee, sweet one." With a powerful effort Agnes overcome the tu multuous emotion that shook her frame,and then in a respectful manner she replied? " | am on my way to Stuitgait. J am goin? to the castle of my guardian." ?*Soyou meant when you started. 1 saw the noble Count, thy guardian, this morning, and he bade ine come ana take tnee. And so you see I ! have route. Sir Knight, 1 will relieve thee of thy charge." 44 Were 1 anxious to give up theeharge I might thank thee fur thy kindness/' returned our hero, calmly and modestly. 41 But as I assumed the charge for a specified purpose, I must do my pledfe. MtU, you will allow roe to thank y6u all '^The'voung Count was at first puxzled by this. He was young for thepfcaesof power be occupied, being not yet thlrtj; but he bad much experience and was accounted one of the best and aurest lan cers In Baden. Before he could answer, however, their after* Hon was railed in another direction, where two more knights had appeared upon the field. Agnes of Luxemburg drew a long, painful breath, and her cheek once more blanched with fear, for in'J the two horsemen who had thus made their ap pearance she recognised Sir Otto of Metzinger and John of Mainhardt! She knew that their souls were full of revenge against her noble lover; and is it a wonder that she trembled with the thought of her two faithful friends meeting these five full-armed knights? Her heart sank within her as the conviction came that she must now go with the hated Count von Baden ! But will the renowned Knight of the Eagle tamely yield her up, while the fire of his young first love is so fiercely burning in his valorous heart ? "Will he fight against sue hfearfnl odds ?" asks Agnes of her trembling heart; and?*4 What if he suould be overwhelmed and slain at my feet ?** Yes?he will fight! She read* his deter mination in his Hashing eye, and imperial bear ing. Short is the angry piarley. The visors are drawn down; the lances are couched, and the op posing battle-cries ring out upon the startled air! Allies can only pray God to speed the right.
