CLTSINOLB COPIES ONE CENT. THE TELL-TALE HEART. BT EDGAR k. VOX. Art I* long and Time la fleeting, And our hearts, though stout Mid bravs, Still, like muffled drums, are heating Funeral marches to the grave.?Longfellow. Trt>a'?nermus?very. rery dreadfully aer ?ou9 I had bean, and am; bat why will you say that I am mad ? The diaeaae had sharpened my senses; not destroyed, not dulled them. Ahore all was the sense of hearing acuta. I hoard all things in thehearen and in the earth. 1 hoanl many things in hell. How. then, am I mad? ll?arkea! and obeerve how healthily, how oalmly, I can tell you the whole atory. It is impossible to aay how first the idea en tered my brain; but, once conceived. it haunted me day and night. Object there was none Passion there was none. I loved the old man. lie had rarer wronged me. He had nerer given me insult. 1tor his gold I had no desire. I think it was his aye?yea. it wa* this! He had the eye of a vulture?a pale blue eye. with a film orer it. Whenever it fell upon me ray blood ran cold; and so. by degrees?very gradu ally?I made up my mind to take the life of the old man. and thus rid myself of the eye forever. Now this is the point. Tou fancy me mad. Madmen know nothing. But yon should have seen m*. Tou should nave seen how wisely 1 proceeded ' with what caution?with what fore sight?with what dissimulation I went to work! I was never kinder to tha old man than during the whole week before .1 killed him. Anu every night, about midnight. I turned the latoh of hia door and opened it?oh. so gently! And then, when I had made an opening suf ficient for my head. I first put in a dark lan tern. all closed, so that no light shone out, and then I thrust in my head. Oh. yon would have laughed to see how cunningly I thrust it in I raored it slew! y?vory. very slowly?so that I might not disturb the old man's sleep. It took me an hour to place my whole head within the opening eo far that I could see the old man as ho lay upon his bed. Ha ! would a madman have been so wise as this ? And then, when head was well in the room, I undid the lantern cautiously?oh. to cautiously '?for the binges creaked. I undid it just so much that a single thin ray fell upon the vulture eye. And this I did for seven long nights?every night just at midnight?but I found the eye always closed; and eo it was impossible to do the work, for it was not the old man who vexed me, but his Evil Eye. And every morning, when the day broke, I went boldly into hie chamber and spoke courageously to him, call ing him by name in a hearty tone, an! in quiring how he had passed the night. So you see he would have wen a rery profound old man, indeed, to suspect that everv night, just at twelve. I looked in upon bim while ne slept. I pon tha e.^hth night I was more than usu ally cautions in opening the door. A watch's miuute hand moves mora quickly than did mhie Never, before that nizht. had 1 felt the extent of my own powers?of my sagacity. I could scarcely contain my feelings of triumph. To think th&t there I was, opening the door lit tle by little, and the old man not even to dream of my secret deedi or thoughts. I fairly chuokied at the idea Aid perhaps the old man heard me; for he mored in the bed sud denly. as if startled. Now you may think that I drew hack?but no His room was as black as pitch with the thick darkness, (for the shut ters were close fastened, through fear at rob bers .) and so I knew that he eouM hot see tho opening of the door, and I kupt on it steadily, steadily. I had got my head in, and was about to open the lantern, when my thumb slipped upon the tin fastening, and the old man sprang up in bed. crying out *4 Who a there ?" I kept quite still and said nothing; for an hour I did not move a muscle, and in the mean time I did not hear the old man li*? down. He was still sitting up in the feed listening; just as I have (June, night after ni^ht. hearkening to the death watches In the wall. Presently I beard a slight groan, and I knew that it was the groan of mortal terror. It was not a groan of pain or of grbf, Oh. no ! it was the low, stifled sound that rises from the bottom <*f tha soul when or?rvhi*rged with awe I knew the Sound well. Many a sight, just at midnight, when all the world slept, it has swelled up Irom my own bosom, deepening, with its dreadful echo, the terrors that dis tracted me I say I knew h well. I knew what the old man felt, and pitied him. although I chuckled at heart. J knew that he had been lying awake ever since the first slight noise, when he had turned in tho bed. His 1'cJrs had been ever siice growing upon him. He had been trying to fancy them causeless but could not He had been saying to himself, ?? It is nothing but the wind in the chimney; it is only a mouse crowing the floor;" or, *? it is merely a ensket which has made a single chirp."' \ es. he had been trying to comfort himself with these supposition*; but he had found all in vain. All in vain; because death, in approach ing the old man, had stalked with his black shadow belore him. and the shalow had now reaehed and enveloped the viotiia. And it was the m mrnful influence of the unperoeived sha dow that eausid hira to feel?although he neithor saw nor heard me-to Jeel the pressure of my head within the room. hen I had waited a long time, verv patient ly, without bearing the old man lie down, I re solved to open a little a very, very little crevice in the lantern So I opened it?you cannot imagine how stealthily, stealthily?until at length a single dim ray, like the thread of the spider, shot from out of the creviea and fell upon the vulture eye. It was opeu, wide, wide open; and I grow fu rious as 1 gazed upon it. I saw it with perfect distinctness?all a dull blue, with a hideous veil over it that chilled the very marrow in my bones, hut I could see nothing else of the old man s face or person for I had directed the ray. as if ?r lastinet. precisely upon the damned spot. And now?have I net t<?Id you that what you mistake for ina4toes* is hat over acuteneas of the senses '?now, aay. there came to my ears a iow, dull, quick ?ound?much su?rh a sound a* a wat?'h makes when enveloped in ootton I knew taat sound well. too. It was the beat ing of the old man's heart. It increased ray fury, a? the beating of a drum stimulates the soldier intoeourage. But even yet I refrained and kept still; I searoelr breathed. I held the lantern motion less. I tried how steadily I could maintain the ray upon the eye. Meantime the hellish tattoo of the heart increased. It grew quicker and louder and louder every instant The old man s terror must have h*en extreme! It grew louder. I say, louder every moment! Do you mark me well > I hive told you that I am nerveus? a> I am. And now. at'the dead hour of the night, and amid the dreadful silence of that bouse, so strange a noise as this excited me tr> uncontrollable wrath. Ye*, for some mi nutes longer, I refrained and kept still. But the beatiwg grew louder, loader. I thought the heart mast burst' And now a new anxiety seized ine, that the sou nd kiwU he heard by a neighbor. His last ht-ur had come ! With a louJ yell I threw open the lantern and leaped into the room He shrieked once?only usee. In an instant 1 . dragged him to the floor and palled the heavy bed over him I then sat upon the bed and ; s.jiled giuiy to find the deed eo far done. But I for many minutes the h<mrt beat on with a muffled sound. This, however, did not rex , me; it would not be beard through the walls, i At length it ceased. The old man was dead. I removed the bed and examined the corpse. Yes, he ww atone, stene dead. I placed my hand upon the heart and heid it there many minutes. There wa* no pulsation. The ?4d man was stone dead His eye would trouble iae no more If you still think me mad you will think to mo longer when I describe the precautions I took for the concealment of the body. The might waned, and I worked hastily, bat in wi lenee. First of all I dismembered the corpse. I eat off the head arms, and legs. I then took up throe planks from the flooring of the cham ber, and deposited all between the scantlings. I then replaced the boards so cleverly, bo cun ning! y. that no human eye?not even his? could have detected anything wrong. There was nothing to wash out?no stain of any kind ?no blood spota whatever. I had been too wary for that. A tub had oaaght all?ha! ha! When I had made an end of those labors tt wad four o'slock, still dark as midnight. Al the bell sounded the hour, there oirni a knook ing at the 9tre?t door. I went dowu to open it with a light heart; for what had I now to fear ? There entered three men. who introduced them selves with perfect suavity as officers of the po lice. A shnek had been heard by a neighbor during the night; suspicion of foul play had been aroused; information had beon lodged at the police office, aud they (the officers) had been [ deputed to search the premises. I smiled. for what had I to fear ? I bade the gentlemen welcome. The shriek. I said, was my own, in a dream. The old man I men tioned, was absent in tha country. 1 look mv visitors all over the house. I bade thom search ?aeirch well. At length I led theiu to his chamber. I showed them his treasures, secure, undisturbed. In the enthusiasm of my confi dence I brought ehairs into the room and de sired them hero to rest from their fatigues; while I. In the wild audacity of my perfect tri umph, placed my own seat upon the very spot beneath which reposed the corps*of the victim. The officers were satisfied My manner had convinced them. I was singularly at ease. They sat, and. while 1 answered cheerily, they chatted of familiar things. But. ere long, I felt myself getting pale, and wished them gone. My head ached, and I fancied a ringing in my ears; but still the) sat aud still ohatted. The ringing becamo more distinct; I talked more freely to gat rid of the feeling, but it continued and gained deflniteiiess. until at length I found that the noise was not within my ears. No doubt I now grew very pale; but I talked mora fluently, and with a brightened voice. Yet the srund increased?and what could I do? It waa a low, dull, quirk sound?much such a sound aa a watch makes when enveloped in cot ton. I gasped foT breath; and yet the officors heard it not. I talked more quickly, more ve 'lementlj; but the noise steadily incroascd. I ajm<ie and argued about trifles, in a high key and srith violent gesticulations; but the noise steadily increased. Why woitld they not be gone ? I paced the floor to and fro with heavy strides, as if excited tofuryby the observations of tho men: but the noise steadily increased. 0 G<id ! what could I do7 I foamed?I raved? 1 swore ! I swung the chair upon which I had sat, and grated it upon the boards; but thts noise arose above all and continually increased. It grow loudar?louder?louder! And still the men chatted pleasantly and smiled. Was it possible they heard not! Almighty God!? no ! no ! They heard?they suspected?thay Lnero. They were making a mockery of my horror ! Thts I thought, and this I think. But anything better than this-agony! Anything was mare tolerable than this derision ! I could bear those hypocritical smiles no longer. I felt that 1 must scream or die. And now?again' ? hark! louder! louder! louder! louder.' ' Vil lains." I shrieked, ' dissemble no more ! I ad mit the deed ! tear up the planks !?here ! here!. ?it is the beating of his hideous heart!" A Romakcb 05 thk River?On the 19th in stant, as tho flne steamer Florida was about starting on bar maiden trip from Omaha to St. Louis, a tall, gaunt-fellow, of about twenty-six autumns, came on board with a bloomingcoun try girl, of apparently not more than fourteen gentle summer*, lie informed tho clerk that she Was his sister, and so timorous that it would be necessary that tkey should oocupy a state room together. The clerk saw that their mu tual concern was deeply sincere, and aligned thera a room?one next the captain's?register ing them aa Mr. Barbour afad sitter. The sub ject beinir incidentally mentioned to the cap tain. J. II. Baldwin, he remembered that a young l?ui> much resembliug the fair passenger, had come on board to see them away. The statetneul of the kind brother that they had no relatives in that part of the country, and were bound to Joliet. therefore excited bis suspicion. A plan was formed which resulted in converting suspicion into certainty. The captain, whose heart is ih the right place, consulted with his officers, and it was resolved unanimously that the pair should be wedded. Tha happy intelligence was ootninunicatod to the parties in the most considerate and appro priate manner. T'uey were called into the cabin and their mutually delightful destiny unfolded. The young lady at once rushed te her fraternal o mpanion's arms with more than sisterly fer vor, crying?"Ob! Jim, didn't I tall you we couldn't paas for brother and sister ?" and clung to him in a transport of grief and joy. It was evident that sne would perform, with out prompting, her part of the marriage cere; mony, but he appeared to think her " too wil ling." Ilo was. however, informed succinctly I of the captain's ultimatum?he jnu*t marry her, or one should be lauded one side of the river, and the other upon the opposite side. To this ho suerned not unwilling to assent His Hero, however, would nflt trust her Leander across the Mississippi. But his reluctanpy was overcome by the clerk's solemn and confiden tial aaaurance that the captain was in a terrific passion, waa a in ?st desperate person, who would sooner shoot a man than eat, and that he had a pistol iu his pocket, which, it was plainly to be seen, his band was burning to use. The young gentleman, feeling thus compelled to volurteer, explained that he would have married before starting, but that he should have missed the boat, and, (,so kelp him God." he would have married her in^t. Louis. Ar rived at Brunswick. Mo., a Justice of the Peace was summoned, who shortly appeared in the ladies' cabin, where a circle was formed with the happy twain in the centre, and they were made one. The bride was the beaming picture of delight, he the saintlier one of submission. Capt. Baldwin and the clerks?Messrs. John sou and Dill?each gave appropriate advico and kissed the bride, whose gratitude was un bounded. The boat arrived here on Saturday, when Mr. aud Mrs. Barbour took the cars for Joliet, having so far fulfilled the reasonable expectations of their friends?LomtrilltJour. Ohess Congress?.Tho tournaments are going forward slowly. The third section is not yet commenced of the Grand Tourney. The astounding performance of playing five games at one time bliadfolded, was performed yesterday afternoon by Louis Paulsen, of Iowa. His antagonists were Messrs. Frere of Brook Ivn, Dodge of New York. I>r. Hawe* of Provi dence. K.J. (Asoanyun of Canstaa'.iuople, and Mr, Ilellbuth. The secne was one which will be long remembered by chess players. The five players, with the boards, occupied a quad rangle in the centre of the spacious saloon of Des^oanbe ? Rooms, where the congress is held, ^oaspiscnus amg the players was Mr. <>soany y>o, with a red tei on his head, looking like the very genius of this oriental game. Mr. Paulsen sat on the raise 1 platform, at the end of tbe rootu. about thirty feet from the nearest honrd, and with fixed attention ana lysed the moves almost without a single move spent. He commenced this arduous feat at >*bout .H? o'clock in the afternoon, and though he played even more rapidly than when the ffcur games were played about a week ago, the games occupied the whole svening until a late hour. Among the spectators w? noticed Dr. Chas. MaeKay of th? Loudon Illustrated News, the Hon. Jojin Van Buren, James R. Whiting, Thalberg. the-celebrated pianist; Capt. i'pte graf, ditinguished in the Mexican war ; Capts. Chauncey and Bullus of tbe Navy; Hickson W. Held. , Paul Morphy, EsqJohn Jsy. Esq , and other distinguished chess amateurs and ' gentlemen. The greatest silence pre vailed, except when broken by the annonncc ment of - the moves. Whatever eonversation ?>ok place was carried on ia whispers, and whenever a gentlemen with creaking leather it. his shoes moved over the floor a universal ?? hush ' warned tbe delinquent of his offence.
