IZTSINGLE COPIES ONE CENT. THE AQUEDUCT OF SEGOVIA. [Froni the German of Rosalie Koch.] Segovia, a father important town in Spain, is remarkable for an aqueduct. 200 feet high and 2,feet long, entirely l?uilt of black granite, the block* of which are firmly bound together, a* if for eternity, although without mortar and eernent. The spring which supplies this aqueduct with water take* its source in the mountains of Fu enfria. situated rather more than throe hour;' drive from the town. Prom this dietanoe, con siderable though it be, the pillars and arches begin, rising higher and higher, until, towering far above the guble-onds of the houses and the bill* of Segovia, the/at length offer their re freshing gift to the inhabitant* of the town, on the great sqoare of St. Sebastian. lu the last of these enormous arches there is one single stone wanting, and the legend relates that tho hand of man eannot succeed in filling up this gup. The whole construction of this splendid aquoduot marks so stupendous a conception, that in former times it was looked upon as the work of supernatural power. It has dofied for two thousand years the ravages of time, and from generation to generation the following le gend of ita origin has been handed down: There lived one? at Segovia a pious old cler vman. who had adopted and brought up in his ouse tho daughter of an unfortunate sister of his. who had boen long dead. Martha had to attend to the household affairs, the kitchen and the washing, and to do everything herself with- i out the assistance of a maid servant; for the old priest shared his slender income go liberally with the poor, that he was obliged to be as eco nomical as possible in his own home. In those times there was not a single spring in Segovia, and the inhabitants were forced to take a two hours' walk, in order to fotch water into I town This was a great task to Martha ; for, notwithstanding the fatigues of a day spent in < aetive employment, she had every evening to wend her weary way to the mountains of Fuen fria, with one pitcher upon her head and another under her arm. to bring water for the following day's use. Nevertheless, she liked to have her room always clean. and to have the ncckhand kerchiefs and collars of the worthy pastor beau tifully washed. One evening, after a warm and fatiguing day, 1 Martha was particularly impatient and dejected 1 at this ta*k. "Ah!" said she, thoughtlessly. '? I would give ray very soul if I had not to run i so far every day to fill thoae pitchers afresh J with water.'' i '? Done ! .Agreed ! suddenly exclaimed a 1 finely-toned voice behind her. She started, i and. on looking round, she beheld an elegantly- 1 dressed gentleman, smiling as he contemplated j her. The last rays of the evening sun beamed through the small window in the kitchen, and i poor Martha fancied that the velvet mantle of the stranger shone blood-red. i She was at first terrified at the unexpected 1 appcarauce of a gentleman, not being able to 1 understand how he could have coino then .but < as her visitor had nothing terriblo about him. and wore a hat and sword liko a cavalier of ? rank, she took courage and said, ^railing. '' Yes. i so be it, if these pitchers are filled with spring 1 water, without mv haviug to move them from J this spot I am much too tired to-day !" \ ** lis well, my child ' replied the stranger. 1 '? You shall hear from me again." And with I these words he bent over tho large stone pitch- 1 ers which stood on the ground, then disap- i peared as he had come. i When Martha was alone she became uneasy. < and she reflected seriously upon the words 1 which sh* had uttered in jest. 41 It was very I wrong of me." said she, Hshamed of herself; ?? one ought not to jest on such subjects. Who i could the stranger gentleman have been? I ? wonder if he has called to see my uncle ?*' I She was about to take up her pitcher and set i off along the well-known road, but she started ? on perceiving that the jugs were already filled 1 to the brim with pure, clear water. < '? Lord of Heaven' cried sh^, iu great anx iety, "if that man really were the Prince of < Hell, and I have promised hi in my soul merely I because I wa? too lazy to do my duty! Whathave 1 I done, thoughtless being that I aui!" And she < hid her face in her hands and wept bitterly. 1 la the anguish of her hoart sue related tho i matter t? her uncle He was shocked in the i extreme. At length, however he said: i " courage ; your thoughtlessness shall I not draw you info the power of the wicked I one! Pray to God for help, and forgiveness of i the sm which you have committed, unfortunate girl ' Then with a loud voice summon into I your presence the Prince of Darkness. I shall remain near you, and support you !" With fear and trembling Martha did as the < old man commanded her, and immediately the j stranger appeared in the middle of the room ; < but this time he was not drcised in silks and < velvets, nor had he a swerd by his side; be looked rather like a bricklayer, and held a i spa le in his hand. ?? What do you want with me ?" he asked | impatiently ; '? I have fulfilled your wish, and ] need not serve you further " lne past..r at this moment stepped forward i from the shadow of the door, and said, in a so- < lema toue: ? I have a word to speak to you, for the soul of this child, which you seek to win, is confided i tome. Who has given you power over her 4 iiersell!'' answered the stranger, severely. ] 4- Sue is still young, and has no will of her , own yet," declared the pastor. 4' Not at all, was the Bueering roply ; " the girl has had teaching and religious instruction enough, and knows right weli the meaning of what you term n?." The g<>od old man shuddered, and made the s gn of the cross, but the fiend continued un moved : " Come what may. she now belongs to me. will either keep her word, aud then I shall taki her eoul for the service which I have ren dered her in saving her unpleasant trouble ; or she wiil break her word, in which case sue will as assuredly fall into my power, for she will have told a falsehood, and will therefore becon demne 1 You, who are a priest, must certainly know that lyinj; is a great sin." The t>astor became very uneasy at these words, for he could not help thinking that the devil was right. Still he would not let him have the soul of the unhappy girl ; she should not be lost to her rightful Lord and Master; and in his grief he began to pray aloud. 1 his seemed little to please Satan, for after reflecting a short while, he said : 4* \ ou must admit that my right to your niece is well founded, and that 1 can insist upon the contract without farther conditions, but to show myself amiable toward you. and that you mav see that 1 am not so ba l as people say I am. I will render you another service still, and bring the water from the mountain of Fuenfria even to your door." ?? And how long shall the water flow de manded the man of <iod. listening eagerly. As loug ?s one stone of Segovia stands up>n the other. Lot it i- a great and difficult under taking and I require tiiue to accomplish it! SIi.ill the soul of the young damsel belong to me after I have achieved this vast work Martha was frightened to death when she heard these words; she knew that the pious old man never yet broken his word. She there fore stole softly up to him, and clasped her hands in supplication. He whispered to her to >e comforted, and to step into the next cham \? ""I hack the clock a whole hour. . lartha slipped out quickly, aud after obey ing the pastor s commands, she fell upon her knees in the little chamber, illuminated by the , t nioonhKht. and prayed God fervently to pardon her criminal folly, and save her fn,m the r?ow?*r of the fcvil One. '.?*?? ????ter ? now settlrd between n^ exclaimed the str-ager in the inner room ?,3r' *""?,hm"k"' *???' '? " S"- in 'hree days, but in three hour*." answered the clergyman, decidedly. 4' If the work be not finished before sunrise our bargain is at an end.*' Impossible' cried Satan Ci Are you not aware that it ie already la e ?" * I ?, VOL. X. WASHINGTON, D. C., SATURDAY, AUGUST 22, 1857. ISO. 1,438. '? The clock is just striking midnight," said the man of God, and the large clock in the next room struck twelve full stroke?. " I only agree on this condition." 4i Midnight already !" muttered Satan. " The sun rises about ten minutes to three ! Ah ! I hare not a moment to lose. I require one hour to detach the granite from theroca, thirty min utes to cut the stone in pieces, and to convey it to the spot; the rest of tne work is to sketch the plan, that will take also an hour, and twenty minutes suffices to execute it. Well, it shall he dune ; but remember, an honest man is as good a* bis word !" '? An honest man is as good as his word!" an swered the old pastor, oalinly, notwithstanding his face was deadly pale, and cold drops of per spiration ran down his temples. The mysterious guest immediately vanished. Martha knelt in prayer in the small chamber; the aged priest supplicated before the picture of the Savior of sinful mankind. When the sun ruse on the edge of the horizon, and tho inhabitants of Segovia, ono after an other, awoke from their slumber?, they beheld, with as much joy as astonishment, a miraculous work. The aqueduct was completed all to one stone, which was wanting in the la9t arch; for, as the mysterious architect had just taken the last stone in his hand to fill up the gap, the glo rious sun made his appearance above the gray edge of the horizon. One moment later, and the victory had been his; but the Almighty had graciously listened to the fervent prayers of tho two supplicants. Martha's soul was saved ! DEMY 1XD His LOVE. BT CAPtflCtTM. a greftt Dian; at I>emy thought he was a great man, so he had all the tun of tho thing, lie boarded at ono of the principal hotels in Boston, where there was a crowd of as good fellows as ever gathered round a dining-table. Between Demy and his fellow-boarders there was a slight difference in opinion on an impor tant subject?-Demy thought he was a great man, and his fellow-boarders did not think so. indeed, they had taken an aversion to him, on account of this same pretentious whimofDeinv In a word, he was too big for?that is to sav, Tor h?m?r * ? h'S punt8 lftrSe eno"gh Demy had taken it into his head that he was not only a great man. but a good looking man. Me thought he was a handsome man. and think ing so. of course he was fully persuaded that the I.idie-must bo very partial to him, whi-h was inother great mistake, for Demy was a silly ellow decidedly a flat, and the ladies, as a general thing, do not like flats. Among the ladies boarding in this house was ? v ra",V.brairod maiden of ninetocn, whom shall call Miss Rocket, because she reminds me of a whizzing. scintillating firebrand, more than anything else I can think of. She was beautiful, accomplished, elegant, only a littlo ffratic, and her lather was president of a bank Demy had taken a fancy to Miss Rocket, and <n all convenient occasions, suitable or unsuit able, he lost not the opportunity of testifying na admiration in the most extravagant manner. It is needless to say the lady wis disgusted with bun. Sho made all manner of game of eve? hie face. which he was too ob tuse to understand. Ho had probably made up aisrnmd that she should become Mrs. Demy, ind. as faint heart never won fair lady, he w.:is aoi at all bashful in pushing forward his inter est* with her He persecuted her till th? poor lady was sadly perplexed, and cast about her or the means of effectually ''selling him." Mario announced a grand concert it Music Hall. Miss Rocket was fond of music ind Demy knew it; so he invited her to attend the concert with him. She was exceedingly an noyed at this presumption, and did not purpose iven to vouchsafe a reply to the i?erfumc<d note le sent to her father s room A lucky thought :am?j to her aid. and she replied as follow* : ? Mr Desiv:?Do you know that my father >bjocts to your attentions to me? I cannot, therefore, accept of your polite invitation ; but i must go to Grisi and Mario'sconeert. At the soracr of Washington and West streets, a lady will take your arm. at seven o'clock, precisely and go with you to Music Hall. Circumstances render th. - ratageiu necessary. and you will understand me better on your arrival at tho .vail I ray, be very discreet; do not mention .his to any one. Kllbk Rocket." Demy kissed the note in an ccitacy of delight Shcjoved him! He would understand her Better. She would squeeze her hand as an ex pression of her tenderness He hastened to the nu-io store to procure tiekets, for Demy was :aretul of his corners, and without extraordina ry inducement, he would as soon have thought t>i cutting off his nose as of investing sundry iollars in concert tickets. Demy announced his intention of attending the concert to the crowd of good fellows who boarded with him, gave them the number of bis seat, an l even hinted very darkly that a la'y w?uld be his companion. Ihese good fellows aforesaid winked myste riously at one another, and when Demy was out ?>f sight, laughed heartily at the joke in gtoro tor them. At the appointed time, Demy was at the cor ner of W ashington and West streets arrayed in white Marseilles and white kids. lie had stood but a moment with his arm placed ready to re ceive the dear hand of his adored fair one when the lady closely veiled paused beside him. "Mr. D??niy?" said she " Ah. I am delighted to see you!" ho ex claimed; with rapture, and she placed her arm in his with entire self-possession. Demy was in raptures, his blood leaped with eesucy, yet somehow Miss Rocket did not say much, but when she did speak, it was only in a wtir per. Rut he could understand that She was circumventing her father's vigilance She was a tender blossom, and it was no wonder she was agitated by the novelty of her position They entered the hall, and Demy, with a profusion of flourishes, escorted bis lady to her seat. It was a moment of triumph for him. By some accident, the seats of that crowd of good fellows wero near his own, and they could witness ms triumph. Prouder than ho had ever been felt before in his life, he was anxious that his beautiful inamorita should raise her veil, so that bis fellow-boarders might envy him, so that he might put on his victor's laurels. She did not, for some time. She was still so agitated that she spoke only in whispered mon osyllables. " Shall I assist you to raise your veil'" sug gested he, at last. ? '? Thank you." The lady raised her veil then. Demy was confused, confounded, horror struck. It was not Miss Rocket! It was Miss Koeket s mulatto servant-girl ! The veil was raised. Demy rose and gazed at her with horror, while the crowd of good fel lows'? snickered." and laughed, stuffed their handkerchiefs into their mouths to keep from roaring. Demy grasped his hat and tied for too door. Dinah sat as c?ol as a cucumber, till ono of the ushers suggested that colored people oould sh? a! "IT' m \he bod* uf ''all, when sh retired to an obscure oorner of the mm. and had her reward in hearing Uriso and Mar Demy certainly understood Miss Rocket now. For three days he listened to inquiries concern ing the lady at Music Hall, and then left the hotel in disgust, satisfied that he was neither a great man nor a good man. Torn Rocket, the lady's brother, did the busi ness of the play, and it was the standing joke for a month. # * ? rT7~ It is nearly ascertained that acute rheum atic fever arises from the pressure of lactic acid in the blood.

The elevating influence of female education is felt and acknowl edged by every admirer of female excellence; hes itate then, no longer, to bestow on your daughters those advantages that are indispensible to their ad vancement and succ9ss through life. As the School increases, the tinmlierof Teachers will be also increased; thereby securing every aux iliary to the rapid advancement of the Student. Every effort will be put forth to maintain the high tone and character of the School. Appropriate hours will be set apart for studv and daily exercise. The discipline will l>e mild and per suasive, but very firm. Two Saturdays arenppo;nt ed every month for the girls to visit and make pur chases. The Gospel is preached from lour different pulpits.affording to each the privilege of attending the Church of her ohoice. No influence will lie ex erted to control the religious prejudices of the pu pils. While practical Christianity will lorm the basis of their instruction, the selection of Churches and Sahtiath Schools will be submitted to the decision of parents and pupils?the variety of religious priv ileges here, will not fail to offer satisfaction to all. No Scholar will be taken for a shorter term than five mont ha admission will be obtained'any time dur ing. the session, and charged only from the tune of entrance. Half the tuition and boarding fee must lie paid in advance, in order to cover tao expenses of the School.
