ADVESTTRE Or A TRAVELER 0* THE RHINE. Not many years ago. a traveler from some part of England. who waA making the tour of the continent of Europe, wandered up the river Rhine to the most interesting portion of that celebrated river, which is the few miles between Ht Goar and Bacharach- These places are midway between the important towns of Cob lents. at the mouth of the Moselle, and Bingen. at the mouth of the Nahe. This section of the Rhine winds between high and jagged basaltie mountains, which pressiug together, form the narrow and deep channel of the river. All along these mountain shores scattered thickly on the nariow causeway, or hanging on its rocky ?hles, are the ruins of ancient castle* or towers and towns which had their origin earlier than the earliest records of European history. 1 This locality is a vine growing and wine making couutry So in j of the most delicious wines used in the higher circles of European society, are made from the grapes grown on these hills and mountain sides A picturesque sight in the season of vegetation. are the fields and slopes of the vine groves spread over their sunny side.*. Our traveler was without companions, wander ing, observing. and studying tho historic les ?ous. which the antiquities and cugtoms of the people opened to him. Ho rambled among the hamlets and visited the people in their employ ment* He wandered on the mountains, and took pleasure in theiufinite variety of landscape which they presented. In thecool of the morn ing, he would stroll along the graded carriage way from St. Goar to Oberwesel, from Ober wesot to Bueharareh. which followed the course ot the rivor, and part of the way dugout of the mountain side. Over this carriage way hung threatening projecting ledges, which have held for ages past the stern threatening finger to every traveler that dared to pass uuder tneir frowns. On one of the finest summer days, when the atmosphere was clear, mild and balmy, and when ripening fruits and flowers scattered their odors everywhere?he wandered away alone upon one of the more distant hills, to visit the ruins of an old castle, which by its strange sombre look, had long invited him to a more familiar acquaintance. It was one of those ruins which had been utterly despoiled and abandoned to the habitations of bats, owls, and lisards; its silence being rarely disturbed by the footstep* of the traveler. Oar tourist pursued the main road for a dis tance, meeting with peasants on their way to their daily toil followed by barefooted laughing koys and girls, lie turned into leas frequented paths, roads only made for tho accommodation of the grape culturalists upon the mountain side. Inquiring the way as well as he could of the laborers in the vineyards and of the farms, he makes his way towards the ruins which stand on the mountain side, as the most promi nent object of observation. Into bye-paths he turna, which soem to lead in the direction; and less and less distinct becomes the path as he clambered on. He lifts himself up by the roots and trunks of the trees, resting himself on a foot-hold of a rock, until at length be gains the plateau on which the castle stands. There are no guides here, tor a few kreutzers, to show him through the ruins. This is not a favorite resort of visitors, though the ruins are some times visited. for the path through the ancient portcullis is a trodden one. and all over the in terior are marks of foot-prints and hand-prints and pencil and knife drawings and sculpture ? 4 those who occasionally coine here to mu*c on tti? solitude ot those ruins, and in dreams with the spirits of the past. He enters into the court which is surrounded by walls that once enclosed splendid halls?but now yawn with rough open spaces from which have fallen the doors and windows. Colonnades are broken off, cornices have fallen down, and balustrades hang threateningly over immense precipices below. Brambles and briars have woven net-works across the entrances to the balls and vaults; moss has grown upon the facades; vines have trailed up the broken columns and over tbe shattered balconies; and grass grows upon the turrets. Towers have tumbled down in heaps ot ruins at their te?*t, which are covered with earth, giving root to vines and nettles The wiuds howl through spaces in the walls in which were once doors and windows; and the sun pours its rays upon the head of the traveler, in halls without roots Ilero are flights of stairs adhering to the walls with no chambers above them, and chambers to which no stairs afford an entrance A circular flight leads through a dark winding passage--foot-steps have worn the stone to_ an insecure foothold?winding up to an elevation surmounted by crumbling rockj, intermingled with earth, iu which grass and flowers have been planted and nurtured by time alone In the vaults below tho work of ruin has progressed more slowly; and there are apartmeuts aud cells here nearly as complete as when last emptied of their wine stores. He passes outside of tbe main wall, through a port-bole, from the edge of which fragment after fragment has crumbled, until no form or Comeliness is loft to the opening, which is now simply a "hole through the wall." There he s:auds upon a narrow promenade. From this point he overlooks tho Rhine, and the little tow us that nestlod down by the waterside, and oastles that stand on rival elevations?stern competitors for pre-eminence. Every object in range of tho sight is presented with a distinct > lvidness. 1 rom tins position he discovers the laborers in tho vineyards on the adjoining hill tides, women carrying their fruit in baskets upon their heads, the people moving about in the streets of the villages, and all the activities of life incident to that rural district. Below, the steamers ply their way against the current, rolling up the sparkling waters, leaving a path of silvery foam behind. Every sound rover bjratrs with a clear distinctness. Then he dosceuded U> tbe hitherto unexplored recessee of the subterranean vaults and passa ges under tbe ruins. The castle stood upon the side ot the mountain; a tier of its underground rooms were lighted and ventilated by apertures and windows from its elevated sides, l)own many a win-ling staircase, and through arched Eass ages and vaults partly in ruins, be explored l? *ay?*oinetimes hesitating and shuddering lest be should be lost in an under-ground labyrinth. \ et his curiosity and interest in tbeee lighted repositories of olden mysteries led him on and into caves opening back into tbe bowels of the earth, the end of which was only darkneM. unto which he could not pene trate. Below these were deeper vaults still, entered by desreudiug spiral stairways, to which impenetrable darkness was a barrier. luto one of these rooms, under the main ^wer, with opening on two sides, he entered. There was but one way of acccss to this oell, and that was through the opeuing of a stone door which was yet hanging upon its rusty hinges, thrown back against the wall. There it had probably stood on its massive hinges for generations without being closed. This door was made of a large flag-stone, and bevelled to fit the opening, so that when it closed it formed the continuation of a perfect wall?tbe stone casement to the unfortunate victim enclosed within. It had in former times unquestionably been used as a prisoner's cell, aud perhaps had been the scene of the lingering death by star vation ot many a criminal, or unfortunate Wight who had offended the lord of the castle. W ith tool hardy recklessness our castle-ex plorer laid his hands upon this hug* door, and attempted to turn it upon its rusty binges. At first his strength could not overcome the re nounce ot iu immense weight and the corroded adhesion of it* biuges At length it breaks the rusty cementation, and grinding and creaking on its joints, it moves upon its turning point. Nowlj 14 It swung forward from iu place back folita ifiioit tho will, moving tlife eAiier ai it swings out. At right angles it stands vibrating u;>on a balance point; theu it inclines forward with a lealen force. It slipped from his hands aud closed into iu place like a clap of distant thunder, reverberating through those vaulted subterranean chambers?the closed stone d >or. which no man having shut could open?enclo sing within, the entrapped and thuuder-strioken Warut m4 ?-Mektr va Ute btofcf ol Uf% Rhine. From the consternation of the moment, he rallied to a consciousness of his appalling sit uation. He was entombed alive in a vault 01 one of the unfrequented ruins of the Rhine He had been the executioner of his own doom. The stone door had been artfully contrived like the springing of a trap, to fall into its place with the force of its own weight. So heavy was it, that it defied any force of a man from within to open it. There was neither locks nor bolts, or handle to bang upon, to draw it back Its joints fitted closely, and no crevice was left for the fingers, or instrument to be inserted as a pry to force it back. A period of terrible and stunning reflection followed. The apertures through which the obstructed light peered would not admit the passage of a man. Above was the stone ceiling?underneath was the stone floor?on either side were the impenetra ble stone walls, around were the rocky encase ments. which held him as inflexible as the iron shroud. No human ear could be reaohed by appeals for help, though he might hear the dis tant murmurs of the life and joys of liberty without. Few visitors camo to the castle, and they rarely descended into those lower vaults. Days of repining, of torture by hunger, of har rowing tears of lingering butcertain death, wore stalking before him; while mocked with the sight of sun-light, aud joy, and gladness, and liberty, and lifo, outside bis prison walls. So must he perish, as brother men without uuuiber had perchance, perished in that same tottth of thehving. Tht? day was now drawing to a closc. The shadows of the mountains, behind which the sun had already gono down, cast a deathly gloom over the eastern slope of the mountain and the side of the prison through which he looked out on life. Across the Rhine, on the distant hills, tho light of the sun still shone clearly and beautifully; it was hope in the distauce. No stone could ho find that he could remove, and so pick a way through the wall. No flag could he raise from the floor, for an outlet below. Halloing for help from the little window brought back no response; the hills and woods around, more merciless than the rocky embankment of the river at Lurlei, gave back no answering echo to his calls. [to bb continued.] Mtstert at Moosehead Lake.?We learn from the Bangor Union that the usual quietude of the Moosenead Lake region has been dis turbed by a "mysterious'' affair which recently took place at the Evelcth House. About a fort night since two young men arrived at that hotel and registered themselves as from Lowell, Mass. The next morning they purchased a batteau, giving twice as much for it as it was worth, had their trunks placed in it and said they were go ing on a lake and foresting tour of six or seven weeks. They set out from the foot of tho lake, but only proceeded a mile or two, to a point out of sight of the houso, where they were observed by some laboring men to land their trunks. They remained at this point all day, and returned to the Evelcth House at 11 o'clock that night, with one less trunk than they carried away. They carried the remaining trunk to their room them selves, and left next morning in the five o'clock stage. These movements were regarded so suspi ciously 'hat the spot where the young men passed the previous day was visited, whera were found the fragments of a trunk, several pounds of bullets, a blacksmith's pincers, a cold chisel, a tin tube, such as is used in cotton factories, a little silver whistle, a piece of trace chaiu, an augur, a phial labeled strychnine, one or two shirta with bosom* torn out. and several little trinkets. The quid ttunrs of the locality are greatly befogged by the eccurrence, and "some thing unlawful" is suspected. A Man in a Cnistur.?On Friday night one of the members of the Hope Engine Company was on the lookout on the top of the Engine house on Sixth street looking for fires. Near the top of the lookout is a tall chimney, which belongs to a two-story house adjoining. After the young man had done looking he started to go down ; but, instead of striking tho trap door, he stepped into the chimney, and fell nearly to the socond story, when he was stopped by tho narrowness of the flue. He imme diately commenced to cry murder, fire, Ac., which aroused a German woman sleeping iu the house. She got up and ran into the yard, thinking the noise wan outride of the house. She then aroused hor husband, but he also failed to ascertain from whence the sound proceeded. The cry of distie<s was still heard, and, after a number of persons had been attracted to the spot, oue of tho iaeml/ers of the Hope Engine went upon tho roof and discovered the wheroabouts ot his comrade. The man in the chimney, in a choking voice called for water, and while an at tempt was made to satisfy his tbirst two buckets containing water was over turned in the chimney, nearly drowning the imprisoned fireman. On making an examination it was found that the unfortunate man was wedged so tight in the flue that the mantel-piece nad to be knocked away and a hole made in tho wall before he could be extricated. When removed he was nearly exhausted.?Philadtlphia Press. The Niagara Falls Siicide?It ha3 been ascertained that the person who committed sui cide at Niagara Falls on the 11th instant, by jemping from Table Rook, was a Mr. Allen, froiu Montreal. He was a traveling agent or collector fjr a house in that city, aud came to the Falls on business of the f rm. The Lufla!o Commercial gives the following particulars of the transaction : "The man came from Montreal, nnd while crossing the Suspension Bridge inquired of the driver if anyone had ever been Known to go over the Falls and live. The Jehu replied that no such case had come within his knowledge, and that tho probabilities were very strongly <j>posed to the occurrences of such an event. The passenger assured tho driver that he should accomplish the feat. Arriving at tho Clifton House, the man registered his name, called for a room and a bottle of champagne, and, after imbibing the wine, addressed a letter?a mere scrawl?to his sister, and another to a firm in Montreal. He then went to the Table Rock, walked into the water near the edge of the pre cipice. threw his hat over, and immediately made a similar disposition of himself. Of course, the body of the iufatuated man has uot been recovered.'* The Bravest Man at Waterloo.?A be Iuest, similar to tho "Jackson Gold Snuff lox," was once made in England by a gentle man, who left a sword, to be given to the " bravest man at Waterloo." It was referrod to the Duke of Wellington to decide to whom the sword should be given. Tho Duke would not say who was the bravest when all were brave, but said that the men who wore the most severely tried on that memorable day were thoso who defended the position at the chateau Hougoumont, and that inquiry should be made regarding those who fought at that point. This was done, and the award was finally made to a British serger.nt, who. at a critical moment, when the French had unexpectedly forced open the gate of the chateau and were about to en ter, rushed forward, aud by the exertion of great ! strength and determination succeeded, alone, in 1 shutting tho gate iu the face of the French I troop*, and holding it till his comrades cutue to i his assistance. Useful Cuemical Process ?The Loudon Chemist states that, by the following cheap and simple process, old files and rasps may be m^le nearly equal to new ones :?First boil them in soap lyes, or a mixture of slackened lime and soda in water; this done, wash them in water, and directly throw them into a tub full of di luted sulphuric acid, formed of one part acid aud six parts water; let them remain thero for some time, the exact period being easily found by taking out a file and observing whether the ? icks appear sharp or not; as soon as the desired sharpening is effected the file must be taken out and washed ia another tub containing a solution of soda, aboat an ounoe of soda to ft pftil of nfe FOR RENT AND SALE.
