The summit of the hill is very extensive in breadth, and is bv far the fairest portion of the city. There are all the chief public buildings; here the gardens and hanging-grounds; and here dwell the noblemen and princely merchants and other opulent citizens of note; the descending streets being left to the humbler classes, who re gard with mingled hatred and envy the inhabi tants of the plateau above them. Behind the pla teau, or summit, the dark range of the Toledo mountains forms an imposing back-eronnd On the afternoon of the day of the commence mi nt of this story, the viceroy, a small, slender, elderly personage, whose brow was silvered by the cares of office, went ou?, after the siesta, whichi commences at two aud terminates at four o clock, during which everybody in Toledo is supposed to be sleeping oft" the heat of the sun, to taite his usual quiet evening ride. On his return, which was just as the sun was going down )>c hind the mountain, the horses, startled by the fl tpping of the gray hood of a passing friar, took fright and became unmanageable ; plini"iii" for ward with indescribable fury and swiftness wrenching the carriage almost in pieces; pitch nig the driver headlong to the earth, ami whirl ing th- footman down a deep gulley, from which he was taken out for dead. On reaching the plaza, the count beheld it swarming with terror-stricken runners, who were speeding with loud cries in every direction to avoid an approaching carriage, without postillion or footman, iiorne threateningly along by two cold black, high-mettled Arabians, who.** flashing eyes and blood-red nostrils and foam reekin-' sides announced d-ath to whoever crossed thei7 path On they came, with the fleet ness of the wind, their small, light hoofs warcelv seemln" to touch the earth, and yet speeding over it witG tue rapidity of li^ht; (heir manes waving, their necks arched, and their heads proudly towini? in the startled air. ** " Make way! make wav!" shouted the thron-. fleeing to the rtoht and left, and when the vehicle had passed by, bringing up behind and following after, as they previously had done before it. Suddenly a cry of horror rose from the inulti tilde. Having cleared the plaza, the coursers were plunging down the steep street leading to the river: ^ A few moments, and the steeds and carriage would be in the Tagus,andGuziua.n,the Beloved, beyond human reach Suddenly, as if by common consent, the specta tors held their breath. Horses and carriage had reached the foot of the Dili, and only a few yards intervened between them and the water's edge. The people were fly ,nK a11 directions, and the Arabians, blind with their wildness, were rushing forward, with their precious freight, (whose small form was seen tossing from side to side of the vehicle.) over the open space, to certain destruction An instant, and all would be over. .Many, un able to endure the appalling sight, closed thsir eyes and turned aside their heads. A moment later, a faint cheer rose upon the air. I<ookm" down, the throng beheld *weepin?'down a neighboring street, with the rapidity of fight, a solitary horseman his hat flying far behind him, and his long, dark hair, like his short shoulder cloak, streaming behind him, upborne by the passing breeze lie was evidently aiming to head <>ft the flying Arabians, whose swiftness scarcely equalled that of his own gallant roan. Both reach - | ed the base of the hill together, and only a few i | yards were outspread between them. But these ! ! few va-ds were everything. The rider buried his ! spur* in the flank of his steed, whom he also | urged on with shrill and exciting cries. But in vain, the few yards still stood between him and the Arabians, who, like himself, were springing I towards the river. ' ? b An instant and theV were in, and. amid a cry of horror from the spell-stricken crowd above and below, horses and carriage went down beneath the glittering waves whose white foam closed for a moment over them and then glittered evenlv as before. 1 But they had scarcely settled when the horse man reached the brink, and suddenly turning the bead of his steed, sprang from the' saddle, and ?h >uting 'A boat, varlets!" plunged like a diver aft'>r pearls, into the water. The two words he had spoken recalled the presence of mind of the crews of the adjoining vessels, and yawls were hurriedly let down from the ships sterns and sides, and the oars rapidly inserted in the row locks, and the boats them selves well manned, and hastily drawn towards the spot where the young man had gone down. Moment after moment went by and he appeared not, and the hearts of the multitude on the height shook as if with a ileath chill. The rower* in the yawl*, carefully watchin" every *ign iu the wives, instinctively formed a large circle around the spot where the Arabians had *unk, and all breathlessly awaited the re sult. By and by an air bubble was descried; and the boats slowly, yet cautiously, closed in; and a brawny sailor, leaning over the gunwale, was ready in each to ciasp whatever might happen to co ne up. rr Suddenly, there was an agitation of the waters n'.ar the centre of the circle, as if Herculean ef forts for life were being made beneath, by manor boast A moment later, a loud shout from the sailors and f om those on the surrounding piers, rent the air. and was caught up bv the great throng on the heights, till the arches of the heavens seemed to ring ; for the youug man. paleasa winding sheet, appeared above the surface, struggling violently with t>>e viceroy on one arm, ana holding up the oth^r as a sign for help. The struggle for his own and another's life must have l>een IWce, for on being relieved of hi* burden, he gave a convulsive throe, as if the last spark of his expiring energy had been con sumed, and then laid, like one dead, upon the water. He was lifted, with the viceroy, into the boat, and borne a?hore. The latter, though pale, still , breathed, and evidently had become insensible ' ere the Arabians had reached the base of the hill, i In fact, it was a question with the crowd wheth er, on waking, he would be conscious of having been in the Tij;us at all. I Both of the bodies were conveyed away the one to the palace, the other to a neighboring con I vent, where the younn man was soon restored to consciousness, when, at his own request, he, though weak and pale, was permitted to go forth I unattended. He modestly insisted on not giving | bis name, selected an unfrequented street, ana I quietly made his way home. (TO BK COXTISCBb IX OCR NEXT.] A letter from Bartlett. N.
