' THE StUGEOS'S STORT. I do not believe in ghost*. I hare no frith in any supernatural manifestations or appearances whatever. I beg any one who may peIrude this narrative to understand that I am no *uperctitiu<u creature, afraid of my own shadow. lending an attentive ear to old women's ^ ^IVIIW, niiu miu^ BvwckHiug nuiio IU cvcrj J corner where the shadows rather thickly after dusk. It is scarcely likelj that an old surgeon. who has stood beside so many dying pitlows, and watched so many spirits take flight from racked and wounded bodies, should tremble at the thought of a disembodied eoai. I know too well the release death often is to poor, pain-stricken mortals to fear their voluntary .return to the scenes of their unhappiness and suffering. Neither ami the victim of disordered serves or fevered imagination. I have performed operations in which one tremor of * ,*ihe hand would have been fatal?where, had mv hand swerved but a hair's breadth to the right or left, I would have been a murderer. ?nj, I, Dr. (lreys?uck. can do what many able, 5nergetic men Have found impossible, for I have had thuoc dearest to iny aoul beneath my band, and though each moan of anguish, each flutter of the heart went through my every nerve, the kindlr cruel knife worked on as *teidiiy u though it carved a block of aonse? less wwd I ?ras born in a quiet and retired country village. My father mingled the professions of doc ler ana apothecary, and at timw drew teeth, or net a fractured limb?an/thing for a living,poor uu, for ha had a large family, and neither property nor expectations of a legacy, liis patient* were distributed over a wide tract of country, and during an uahealtby season he was often upon horseback from morning until night, enduring the scorching snn of summer, the cold blasts of winter, or the miasmatic vapors of the marshy ground over which he waa I called to travel, upon many a rainy midnight to prescribe for some poor creature who wag 41 very low with the fever." Daring his frequeut absences I presided over the pills and * potions, mixed washes, made up prescriptions, and amused myself by the perusal of several 1 works upon anatomy, which graced the bookshelves of the room behind the shop. This science ?u my chiaf delight, and in a little while the determination to become a sursraon filled my mind. Much experience had made me doubt the power of medicine. The mysteries of the unseen machinery within us might b-itStf the most learned, but the surgeon, dealing with the outward man. could see his work, ani really benefit hi* fellow creatures. I knew the strength of my nerves and the value they would be to me in the surgical profusion, and I declared my inteotion to adopt it before I . had reached my sixteenth year. My father waa pleased and gave his consent at once; but there were some preliminaries to be arranged, and some funds to be accumulated before I could enter upon a regular course of study. Meanwhile I stayed at home, impatiently, and gathered all I could from books and from my lather a instructions. The time paaaed tediously enough, for I wad anxious to commence my careei. and start upon the high road to wealth an 1 eminence, and many were the anxious days and sleepless nighu which I spent ere the l time arrived which witnessed my departure | - for the city. At lust, however, all was ready. I bade adieu to my mother, my father, and my yourg brother, from whom I had never yet been separated for one night, and with a heart which beat with high hopes, even amid the grief of parting, took my place in the stage, ani left, for the first time, the home of my glad childhood. In a month I had become accustomed to the separation, and thought only of my profession. iiiidlinU mr? ^I ? and dissipated. I was neither. The discretion of old age seemed to have come suddenly ?pon ine I share! my comrades' studies, but rel'uied to mingle in their orgies, for I had de* taruuned to retain mj strong nerves and unshaken hand to the last. Nevertheless, I was a general favorite, and formed many friendships among the giddy band, which lasted long after they had bacumo gray-headed men. There was one among the number whose name i. was Robert RedUw?s gay, handsome boy he was. full of fun and frolic, and terribly au* tided to practical jokea; but, nevertheless, &ind-bearUd and generous to a fault; for he ' would hare given his last penny to any one who seemod iu need of it. To the living he was all tenderness; to the wounded wretch at the Sn r V^a r.i 1 Kia W? n/1 ? ?** * ? ? a*v?fiv?t aio uauu n no t*c 0UU HI Blijf VY(JLB#C 8j and I have seen his eyes fill with tears while he inflicted neccwary pain; but to the dead he .?* eeetned heartless?a lifeless body being of no -* ' m >m value, in his eyes, than the trunk of a , j.? dead tree ' Would you value your old violin case?'' he would say, when any one remonstrated with him upon the subject. " The strings broken?nay, the instrument destroyed?of what value is that which was but formed for its protection? " For my part, when my aoal has taken flight, I care not what you d j with this compilation of fle*h and bones which now contains it." And _ upon this principle ha seemed to act involunttrily. One night?oh, how well I remember it!?a cold, black evening in midwinter?I sat alone t beside my fire, absorbed in meditation. The book I had been reading lay b??ide me, upon * * - the table, and my candte4mrut low within the tocket, for it was nearly one o'elock, although f w-j ? i o-jj ??- * avw J WW 1H1IM. ouu'ltu:; x WU HKilWCil by a loud ringing of my door bell, and a sound Vfsand thrown against my window from with... Mil, and. lighting another taper, descended c. a k <ai opened the door. There, upon the stepe, stood Robert Redlaw _?it . aad four other fellow-students, all the worse itr liquor, and all in boisterous spirits. ',Let * , in in, old fellow!" eried Robert; ,l we want to UB you of our lark. By George ! we've made m t, . Anight of it. Sueh punch ad we've been having at Tom B?'s. while yoa have been aoninf .?. a over jour musty booka.

Bob frightened ua all,a while ago," began one of them, after a temporary rilenee. " How TM I aaked. 44 How?" laughed Bob; "why, with thU." And, without another word of preface he drew ' 14 *' ft folded kerchief from hia pocket, and unfolding it, exhibited a human hand. " Bob, where did thia come from V I aaked. involuntarily drawing back a atep or two. .rtoii# n ,4 jje too^ it from a grave which the rain had ??ph?d open," anawered a tall young fellow, turning away with a eh udder.

For my part I never passed so restless a night. Soma oae in the boM, or next door, kept up a continual moating; and the strange part of it was that when I arose to listen, fearing some one was ill or dying, the sound ceased, until I once more placed my head upon the pillow, when they were resumed more loudly than before. At one time I thought the other fellows were trying to frighten me about the hand, but there was no chanoe of that. You remember my little pet hand, Greystook? I have it bottled in spirits in a private cupboard, where my laundress, who once fainted at the sight of a skeleton. will never be alarmed by it. He spoke merrily, but there was something about him different from his usual manner, I thought, as we went out to breakfast together. It was a foggy morning, and the streets were very dreary There were but few people abroad, but, as we turned a oorner. we eame face to face with a woman whose head was bent upon her bosom, and who was moaning bitterly. She wore no bonnet, and waa dressed in white, but the mad and rain had drenched and dabbled her until she was a pitiable object to behold. I paused and (poke to her. 'What is the matter?'^ I asked. "Can I do anything to help you?" As I spoke, the woman raised her eyes, ?Dd showed me a face the beautiful features of whieh were of an ashen pallor; then, without speaking, held both her arms towards me. I Lpon the left there was no band. In my astonishment, I stepped aside, and, as I did so, the i white-robed figure glided past me, and vanished in the fog. In Tain we looked for her. CL. ' - * ' cue wu gone oeyont oar sight or bearing. " That U strange," I said, turning to Robert. 44 How miserable the poor creature looked." And my poor friend, turning from me a cheek of ashy paleness, mattered between bis te*th?44 The laft hand, too. Good Heavens ! the left band f" We breakfasted together, but throughout the meal Robert Redlaw was utterly unlike himself. No merry jests passed his lips, no laugh rang out upon the air, and, every now and then, his eyes fixed themsel*'3s upon vacancy, as those of one whose thoughts are far away are prone to do. As for myself, I was also strangely low-spiriied and abstracted. For a weak subsequent to that day I saw nothing of my friend, Dut at the end of that time I went to oall upon him. Bob was standing by the mantel when I entered hid room, but he turned towards me, and came forward with both hands outstretched. 4'My dear Greys'ock," he said, 44I am so triad to sea von T shonld have com* after yoa to-day if yoo had oot found your way here. Do you know I have been ill since we met last?" "I am sorry to hear that," I replied. "Yes, extremely ill!" continued Robert. "I caught a cold that night in the damp grave...J L. 1 " ' t-i<?uu u?n ucon leverisn ana delirious. ,1 believe I would not paw auch another week, Greyetock. for all the diamonds of Uolconda.'* lie paused a moment, and then, drawing closer to me, placed hU hand upon my shoulder, ' Don't mention it to the other fellows," he said; "but I absolutely imagined that I saw a face looking at me from the window yonder, and that a tall woman's figure dressed in white, and having only one hand?the left one was gona?stood upon the parapet of the next roof, and waved her arms towards me. Such a mad idea, you know, for there is scarcely a foothold upon it for a monkey, let alone a woman " "But these fancies have left yoa now," J said. "Yes, I hope they have," replied Robert; "I have suffered from no optical delusion for two dajs. but I do wish that that terrible groaning could be put a stop to. I hear U every night, and I cannot mnhuI* m???" s? t< ?u f ? . ?J HVU ?UU V IV lO llUU work of ray imagination, yet no one in the house ia ill, and my landlady will not confess that she has ever heard the alighest noise. Grey slock, it must bo a terrible thing to be insane." "Put such fancies out of your mind, Robert," I said. "The truth is you bar* been feverith, and the remembrance of your silly piece of work with that hand has acted upon your mind and caused these apparitions. Take my advice. my dear fellow, and aba'ain # 4L a a imm me puncn dowi and wine cap; they will lead any one into committing foolish, if not criminal actions. Come, let us go into the open air, to-daj; I will devote myself to yon, and we will see what a country walk will do towards the exercising of these fancies. . Robert assented to my proposition, and wc set off together. At first, ne wu more serious thnn usual, but as the day passed on, I saw with delight that his spirits were once more resuming their wonted tone. The rich color came back to his dark cheek, his eyes beamed with their wonted brightness. The pallid ghost-seer was gone, and the oarelesa boy stood once more beside me. I rejoiced in tho happy _* * " ODBcge, as a mothsr might in the returning smiles of her ailing infant, and at dusk we returned to the city, as happy a pair as you would wish to meet. " Now. Bob," I aaid, when we had dined, "we will finish this evening at the theatre, and banish those gloomy fancies even more effectually amid the light* and music." "Gloomy thoughts'." laughed my friend, "I am in high spirits to-night, and feel utterly ashamed of my ghostly stories. Come, if you are ready, I am. We weut out into the hall, as he spoke, and my hand was upon the loek of the door, when Robert suddenly exclaimed : "I had nearly forgotten my gloves and handkerchief, Dinah," and he beckoned to the little black waitress. "Dinah, run up and w.;.. ?v? * " ? iuoui iv mo. Biy gioves are upon the table, and you will find a handkerchief in one of the bureau drawers, which is unlocked." The little darkey started with alacrity; but, while we waited for her return, a terrible scream sounded through the house, and she ciine ranning down again, without the articles for w^ieh she had been dispatched. "Oh de ghost! de ghost!" she screamed, " Dar's a ghost in Redlan's room!" " What do you mean?" ejaculated Robert; and "What do you mean ?" was reiterated by the landlady and her boarders, as they flocked to the soene of actien "I went after der han'kercher to Messa Redlan's room," gasped Dinah, "and I tell yer de bressea truff, der was a woman all in de middle of the room, holding up a jar, and in dat jar der was a hand, and ae woman she hadn't only one herseff, tor I seen her jest as plain as daylight. True as I'm alive it was a ghost." 1 snatched the candlestick from Dinah's trembling fingers and rashed up stairs. The 1 apartment was emntv. and the ?in<ln? n~>? the roof closed. I opened the cupboard door and looked in. There flood the glass jar in which the hand waa preserved, on a remote corner of the shelf. Nothing had been disturbed that I could ataoover, and, perplexed and diaturbed, I eleeed the door. As I did so, a low wailfng moan, distinct, despairing, apd horrible, broke upon my ear; and. witn :h% blood running cold within my reins, I descended to the nail once mere. Robert sat upon a ebair, his pale faoe hidden in both arms I touched him upon the shoulder, and fo?nd that he waa senseless. At first I thought that he waa deed. t For four weeks Robert Rod law trembled on the margin of the grave, and we, his comrades, watebed over him with sad foreboding* far the excitement which he had undergone had developed a heart disease, which might, at any moment, prove fatal. At last, however, the danger seemed to grow leaa imminent, and although yet weak, ha seemed to be upon the high road to reeovery. AH that time I had narar left him, day or night. Study had been thrown aaide, basineas abandoned?all earthly interest seemed centered in the dying friend, beside whose pillow I watched so anxiously. When the nappy hoar of oonralesoence came, I could hare wept for joy. iar, I had been sitting beside Robert. reading from an old book to which he loved to liften, until the twilight fall, and the room frew to dark that I could not see the words. Then my friend said to me, "Lay down beeii* me, Greystoek, and rest a little while; you mast be weary, and I need no watching now. It will do me good to see yon quietly asleep." I was rcry weary, and in my happy confidence of his safety, I obeyed, and bad scarcely flung myself upon the pillow ere slumber overtook me. How long I slept I know not, but I was awakened by a low moan, and lifting DT head saw Robert sitting upright,gasing through the window "Bob. dear Bob!" I ejaculated, "what is the matter?" "I committed sacrilege," moaned my friend, ''and this is my punishment. Robert, she has been here again. Put your arm about me, and let me die upon your shoulder." *? ? ? - - norror-stricKen, l supported him upon my breast, called to Qod for aid, and prayed for one smile, for one more word from those pale lips, but all in vain. The voice was hushed forever; the eyes grew glassy, the eold haDd stiffened in my own, and the white moonlight fell upon a dead man's face, as I pressed my last kiss upon his lips. Have you ever watched beside the dead, dear reader ? Do you know what it is to see a form which once was full of life and mirth lay like a marble block before you? All sweet emotions froten within iu sunken eyes, and those _ L. *? _ * J ?.11 1 * * * cuaugemi sou wen-iovea expressions wmcb charmed you so in life settling into that fixed and rigid smile which even in ita beauty, seems to forbid your gaze, and tell you that your past, in what lies there, is blotted out forever. Oh ! if you know the grief of such a scene. I need not tell you what I felt as the hours of the next sad night wore on towards the morning. His watch lay on the mantelpiece, ticking as busily ss ever. Oh ! how strange it seemed, to thipk its master's hand would never rest upon I f mnro ' T IaaIt a/1 nrwn *> Ub?? ? ? ?? pointing to tho hoar of three?the night was over, and the miserable day was close at hand. I turned away and walked toward the window. I was alone, for I would not permit another to sharo that vigil, and the tears trickled slowly down ray checks as I paced the floor. Just then, I heard once more that low melancholy moan, apparently just without the casement, and starting back, held my breath to listen. By the faint light of a shaded taper upon the table I saw the window open. It was a French window, and turned nmin it* hinvM like a door, and. as it unfolded, a figure crossed the sill and stepped softly in. It was that of a woman, dressed in white garments, and I saw, as she crept stealthily towards me, tha*. one hand was 'gone. This was no fancy; if spirits ever came to mortal man one stood before me now. The apparition advanced, and so did I. Horror gave me courage, and I grappled with it. I held it in a firm, unshrinking grasp, and found that it was solid as a thing of flesh and blood, and that it moaned and trembled as in terror. Should I call for aid ? This thing, living or dead, had killed my poor young friend. No fevered imagination conjured up the form and face, which he believed was of the other world. Here it was. powerless in my hands, and I would exorcise it or die. While 1 stood irresolute, the light of a taper gleamed from oat the darkness, and I saw a man standing by the open sasb. He looked upon the bed, and the still thing beneath its snowy covering, upon me and the being I grappled with, and then whispered: " For God's sake, don't hart her, sir ! She does not know what she is doing?the has lost her senses!" " Who and what is this being?" I asked; ''and why does she come to the chamber of -:i ?. 1 ? uoai.ii at iiiia oiicui uuui : mo mun icu me, for she is already a murderess." " She is my wife," said the man; "we hare lived in the next house fur ten years, and all that time she has been mad. She has not had her senses since her onlj child was burned to death in tho same fire in which she lost her hand. She was always fond of peeping through this window, and I had not the heart to hinder her. But one night she saw the doctor, poor fellow, doing something with a hand, which. I suppose, he had brought from the dissecting room, and has been wild ever since. I have not been able to keep her from the window, or even from this room ; for, you see, she thought the band wan her own, and wanted it back. Three times I've followed her and brought her back?once when she had the jar in her arms and wax bringing it away. (rod help ker ! she would not harm any one ; give her to mo, and let mo take her away." I let the wretched creature go, and he took her about the waist very tenderly. " Do you know what she has done ?" I asked. II No," replied the man. 44 To my knowledge she has done nothing." "Nothing! Is that nothing?" I asked, pointing to the white couch. " That is her handiwork. She killed him. Her presence frightened him to death." " I hope not, air," said the man. " I speak the truth," I muttered, bitterly. " Take her from my sight. Oh? why did I not learn this in time?" " Why did I tarry on the roadside while my dwelling was in flames, and my wife and child enveloped in their midst? Why is this woman, _ A j j a ?*? ? ? unue no gooa sua Dettuiuui, a senseless mtni?o?" said the strange man, sadly. "It was God's will, sir. and we cannot alter it. Good night. May He comfort yon." And thus spenking. he led the wrotched woman through the window, and away over the sloping roof, with the soft, caressing kindness of a lover; while I, sinking upon the floor, gave way to a wild and bitter hurst of grief Enough! iny tale is done.
