[ From Titan ] " A letter for you, sir !'* I broke the seal. an<I read, with astonish ment : "Mr. HJte.irii W'urthitigton?Sir: Pardon these intrusive lines, and rest Mended that they are from one who shall over l>e prond to call himself jour sincere friend. Lucy Ames is not faithful to you ! I do not write this to you for any ?>aae purpoM*; for since I know so well y<>ur generous and noble nature. I cannot hesi tate when I see that nature become the dupe of vile dissimulation. Nor have I been too hasty in communicating to you this knowledge : I only fear it is too late, but rest assured that all 1 have said is true, and can be attested by one who has an undoubted personal knowledge of all the facts Arther Wesley, our village scool masler, is your too fortunate rival m Yours. A Frie*d." This was the first intimation I had had of Lucy's inconstancy. I hud seen things with my own eyes that made me doubt her sinceri ty. For a long timo the unwelcome suspicion had been preying upon me. and this fatal let ter had come to brin^ conviction?stern, irre vocable. hopeless conviction. I did not doubt the truth of it; and yet how it writhed my sou! to think of it, to admit it. It did not. it conld not crush me?I braved it to the last?I had been less than a man to do otherwise. I re-perused the letter calmly?no not ealmly?not indifferently, but sternly, as though it were decreed of Fate that I should not ouly drain the bitter cup. but should swal low the verv dregs. And ret I loved that wayward girl, and glad ly. oh. now gladly, would I hare forgiven bur imprudence. To her first of all I went to seek an interview. Lucy was proud, too proud to be just to herself, yet ?he was generous and noble, in sp>'te of all her fickleness. Obstinately convinced that she had preferred another to me, I did not ask nor expect any cx 1 Sanations from her; I showed her the letter I ?adjust received, and requested her to return iua such letters as I had previously written to her. and any other little keepsake "which might in future only prove annoying to her. She be stowed on me a look I shall never forget. '? Do you believe this, Edward ?" I do!" I replied without hesitation. " What unimpeachable evidence !" she re torted. with tho first impulse of pride. '? I do not rely on the inf<-ruiatiou contained in this letter. I have seen enough myself with out asking any person's advice or opinion." She immediately left the room, aud returned in a few minutes with a packago of letters and h small box of jewels, my former presents, say *a? 43 ?he placed tbciu in my bands? ?? By these tokens, then, since it is your will, I absolve you!" In spite of the smile that played around her uiouih. I thought I could detoct traces of recent tears, hastily brushed away from her cheeks. In a moment the thought flashed upon my mind that alter all she might be true. Impul sively I was about to speak to her. and ask her it it was not so; but what should I say f I had gone too far, and it wai too late to retreat. But as tbe thought had come upon me like a flash. it vanished as it had come, leaving no al toraative but to pursue the course I had adopted. Farewell, then!'- I said with apparent in difference. ' May your future life be ever lighted by the sunshine of happiness." Thank yon ' I trust no act of tnino will ever bring iniscy upon me." Con.?it?nce. Miss Ames?conscience V ?4 Will never reproach me!" * vio.l giant it. The 9top which vou have taken may, in your opinion, be just, but let tne assure you. others do not think so. We do not fee ourselves as others see us."' " I have done nothing, Mr. Worthington. to meri t this. Yon are no!: only deceived hat im pertinent, sir , and cautiously uvoid any ques tions that might l**ad to an explanation? ? 1 ask no explanation," I hurriedly replied; and immediately took tuy departure, in no very amiable mood, uor did 1 wish to humble myself ?o a k her any questions that might, as she sug gested, lead to a satLdact,.ry explanation W hat a victory pride bad won' Ho* perfect and complete was it.- ultimate success on both fides ' 1 hurried from the door as I turned iny st?r?s li->nieward again Instinctively I took the u?nal course iu returning to the village, (for .J J1!"* nwr|Jr a *???? from town.) and walked down the railway track, so busy with my thoughts as to be utterly uanuuscioas of anything and everything el*e. There was a high bridge between me and the village jiiit uide enough for the track. the middle of which was planked over for the convenience of pedes trians Outside of the track it was impossible to walk. Oue of the planks, which wa? very thick and IV'r ? partly raided toraoiue |?urpojte, and left in that position. In endeavouring to paw it. I struck my foot against it, stumbled, and, in recovering myself, forced one leg through the aperture, and striking my other foot with all the force required to regain my equilibrium, replaced the plank in such a manner as not only loft my toot protruding through the nar row crack, but promised to present a difficulty in removing the plank I smiled to think bow curiously I had been entrapped, and stooped down to remove tho plank, and free myself Iroui so dangerous a po sition The task was not so easily performed as I had imagined. The plank was wedged in such a mauuer that no effort of mine could re move it. I strove with more than mortal power, but it was in vain; nor could I extricate my toot, which was laccrated and smarting with the pain in its clitse confinement. At first I did not consider the extent of my peril . but I soon began to perceive the danger of my situation, and I shuddered with horror to think that I should be obliged to remain there and be crushed by the train! It was a cold day in December, and yet the beaded drops burst from every poro. A moment of frenzied delirium succeeded, and when. I rallied again, I found myself sitting between the rail? my t wt still a prisoner, and no prospect of delivery a!I .! VQjr watcb: il Wl"b4lt'p**1 At five the down train would pass or. if that should be late, the express would go up at half put five, an J at half-pait four it would be dark It was possible, nay. probable, that some one weuld paas by before it should be too late. Ul? * If ,nw*ir,!r lu the village than the road, though always regarded as more danger ous, on account of the narrowness of the bridge from which there would bo no possibility of ts cape, incase a train shouldeoaM in M*ht while passing over it Already ono had beenkillel by endeavoring to em*, at a time when the train was due; and should I be the second to j-erish there ' How the thought tortured me and ouee again I tugged at the resisting plank' W ith all my strength I tried U? with.tiaw u.y but. and leave the boot, but impossible! It was four o clock?iu hail au hour it would ! I>e dark?another half hour, and death would 1 c<>rtain ' I <houted for aid. but no habita tion ww within half a mile, and no answer wu* returned to my cries. Again and again I v irieked, while the despairing echoes reverber a ea in the distance, as though they would mo in my misery. And then, with all the a. cumulated strength of madness. I wrenched the plank but could not i? >ve it from its place It oold not be possible that I should be obliged to sit there and be crushed to death, when hu man aid was ?. near Had I been in ??nc isolated forest, some depth of country, distant from town or cottage, my d.M,m might have been more certain Once I s^in I Shrieked with agonued fury; wildly, despcrataly, the sounds of my voice ruiw out on the chilling air, while u .thing but thieiuocking echoes made reply. I he sun had set. and the darkness was inh ering fast over the valley below. Already the last reddening glow of sunshine was gleaming 00 top# tree* irrevocable desti ny became every niomout more and more appa rent. Hark! My Ood ! tbe train ' No. no' 1 stretched forward and listtaed with breath less eagerness There wm not a sound to break the silence : I mast hare been deceived. But, list! A voice ! a voice! Thank God ! ''Help' holp! help!'* I cried; and each time I ?1 touted the word I fleemed in despair* nerved up to greater power of speech, and call ing louder and louder each time. Did he hear ? There was no answer ?all was still! Oh. mer ciful lleaven ! was this last chanco of life de nied me ' 4- Halloo!'? The voice was distant, but oh ! how my blood leaped with joy at the sound ! Again I called with all the strength ot my lungs', and ngain I was answered. In a little while a figure appeared advancing towards me. but it was growing already so dark that I could not recognise him, nor did I care to ; but when he came close to me. one glance showed me that U was Arthur Wesley ! Should I let him pass by. nor ask him to assist me Would he do so ' As he approached, he asked : "Is this you, Mr. Worthington? Bless me, are vou hurt No, thank you. I am not much hurt, but see. I am so nicely trapped here, that I could not freo myself all alone, and I think it is nearly tune lor the down train to be due." It was growing dark very fast. So dark, in deod. was it that I found it impossible to dis cover what tune it was by my match. He never Hesitated a moment, but seized the detested plank with both hands, and at thosamo instant I also imitated his movements. The accursed thing resisted all our efforts, and remained ob stinately immovable. What should be done { In half an hour the train would be due?would there be time to go for assistance?to bring an axo and liberate my foot ? He would try. " For God j sake. Mr Wesley,'' said I. as he started to go, " be expeditious. It is too horri ble to bo obliged to sit here and face death un willingly.'' I was alone again. The winds sighed mourn fully about me, but I felt relief. I even forgot my danger, and turned my attention once more to the thoughts with which 1 had been occupied when I unwittingly stumbled into my prosent unpleasant dilemma. Nevertheless. I was apprehonsivo that ho might bo delayed until the train should pass. In iact, I had no assurance that he had time to go to Mr. Ames' and return boforo it should bo too late. Another thought rushed upon my frantic brain. Had ho deceived uie ? Would be not bo only too happy in being thus easily rid of my unwelcome presence? I knew he never would como to mc again?he would leavo me to the mercy of such a cruel death. Heav ens There is no mistaking that sound?the whistle at the P Station, only live miles distant! How well do I remember the thoughts that paused through my mind, as I patiently await ed the return of Arthur Wesley; for, although I had every reason to believo he would not oome still I iustinctivoly awaited him. and Doped, on, how I hoped, be would return' Hour after hour had I sat there all day, and now I was still waiting and vibrating between the hope of delivery and the almost certain conviction of destruction. The fearful chill of despair was creeping over me; my trembling limbs already announced that my nerves were Kinking iu enhaustion. At every moment I kept a watch for his returning footsteps, but no welcome K>und fell on my ear Hark! it is the train! The low, distant thunder cannot ncceive me now. It will be hero in a few minutes. '? Help! help!" The wailing cry faded away, and there was no answer. Loud?r and louder came the thun der . N earer and nearer came the train ! The ruing moon disclosed to me the white column of ?iuoko and steam, arisiug above the hill beyond the curve; and now the regularly beating puff and cough of the engine ttruck my ear, like the gloating chuckle of some terrible monster re garding his victim. How like a phrenxy tho thought ciuue on me that it wad now too late for issistancc ! No human being would venture >n the bridge when the traiu was within bear ing distance, when it wis too dark to distin guish objects in time to stop the impetuous fire Qorse; and yet, furious and frantic at the thought of such a death, I stretched my trernh iiug limbs to their utmost, and shrieked again find again until I grew hoarse, and the thun dering train drowned the feeble effort of my voice. And now delirium seized mo. I fancied ?.me giant fiend held down the plank which I vainly tried t<S wrench from its firm position? I could hear the chuckle of satisfaction that it give to think it had me there so safely in its power. 1 he loud roar that now reached my ear an nounced that the train had struck the bridge there came an eud to hope?oh, God, no power could avert the death that stared me in the face! r or an instant I saw countless demons hovering through the air. Fire and smoke enveloped me ?-there was a crushing blow, a convulsion, a uim recollection of keen painsshuoting throu 'h my imprisoned limb, and all was darkness ! ?I knew no mure ! ******* \\ hen I returned again to consciousness. I was lying on an easy couch, in a room dimly lighted, but neatly and tidily furnished. While I lay, wondering where I was, and trying to re cull what had passed, the door was slowly opened, and Lucy Ames entered the room. In a moment she was by my bedside, watchin" the motions and the expressions of my countenance, doubtless imagining that I was still delirous. '? Lucy?Miss Auios She started back as I uttered the name, as though unwilling that I should discover her real thoughts; but, in a moment, recovering, all st'li-poswssion, she looked calmly toward we, and as*ud, with a tono of affected indifference I>o you not feel easier, now ?" '? Indeed. I scarce know how I do feel," I re plied, '? but thero is a pain and soreness in my head, and. in fact, in all my limbs. I must have been badly hurt.'' I had a dim recollection of the occurrence narrated above ; and I surely felt surprise that I should have ugain awakened to life. The pain which I felt, on regaining my reason, in creased now momentarily. A physician was at hand, and every effort was made by him, us well as the members uf Mr. Ames' family (in whose house 1 was then lying.) in which, also, Lucy and Mr. Wesley joined, to alleviate my sufferings. Iu spim of all their attentions, my pains rap idly augmented, and, in a short time, I was again lost in the unconscious delirium of fever. In my vague dreamings, I was again on the narrow bridge, bending every eflbrt, and strain ing every nerve, to remove the pieoe of wood that hound me there. Again I was chained to a liugo rock, in which unconscious laborers were drilling holes, which they fillod with powder, to blast the unseemly mass to atoms. Fiends, shapeless and hideous, flew about me, chattering iu gleo?demons danced on tho sharp edge* of the r<?ok. chuckling again like the measured puff of the engine; and, at interval*. th?y stooped to bind the chains closer, until the links festered in the very e*b, ami turned my blood to gall with the poisou iu which they had been dipped. Cav erns yawned on every side b> receive me. All Was.hc*rd U* '"ng shrill whistle of the engine, and voices that ^m,d the very agony un nns <* But all this was past. I w? wcU . d cou d wa'k about the house with the^id of a crutch, for I had left one foot suspended in the bridge where 1 had so miraculously escaped death. Lucy had reassured me of her love not indeed by words, but by her actions Long and patiently had she watched by my side; au5 to her more thau any other do I owe the preser vation of my life. No words had passed be tween us iu relation to the subject which had so nearly separated us, yet there seemed to be a tacit acknowledgment of the error on my part and a cheerful forgiveness on hers. But one day when we chanced to bo alone, I recurred to the folly of which I had been guilty, and more formally asked her forgiveness. M Freely do I forgive you. if indeed you b?ve m.!H??FnNr0f Any^ wbich wou,d seem t0 re" ?orn ? ? doubtless ftcted according to your Si?* "Ration Which I would not wish to cure tlia * 8uPI*???<1 your only objeot wa* to se tj,%t ,, ol another, in leaving me, and r w-sT*!

I did not think it necessary to tell every one why I wa? ao often seen in the company of that gentleman, who, I must assure you. is not only a very amiable voung man. but is engaged to my cousin. with whom no induce ment eould cause him to hroak his compact " But why did he delay so long to come to my assistance when I was about to bo crushed by the train ?"

Icould not help but utter, after listening to Lucy's ex planation of all that had transpired.

As the School increases, the number of Teachers will be also increased; thereby securing every aux iliary to the rapid advancement of tno Student.

The discipline will l>e mild and per suasive, but very firm. Two Saturdays areappoint ed every month for the girls to visit and make pur chases. The Gospel is preached from four different pulpits,affording to each the privilege ofatt?nding the Church of her choice. No influence will lie ex erted to control the religions prejudices of the pu pils. While practical Christianity will form the l>asis of their instruct ion, the selection of Churches and Sablmih Schools will be submitted to the decision of parents and pupils?the variety of religious priv ileges here, will not fail to offer satinfactwn to all.
