VILXIK. nn a o?rUiD day in the summer of 1848. vhile a atorra of unusual violence was raging In the neighborhood of Philadelphia, I was diking on the outskirta of that city with W illiam Marrine, a young friend of mine, whose singularities of character and conduct'sometimes amused me, and sometime* caused me to feei a good deal of uneasiness and apprehension on his account. Marrine was a constant stu lent of German literature, and, as mlijht be expected, a man much inclined to reverie and fantastic speculations. Ia his religions creed be w&4 far from orthodox; but, while he believed less than the church enjoined, he accepted. without scruple, many strange doctrines taught by those mythical writers of Germany who seem to delight in whatever the cnmihon canaa i yt> anting rataAto na I k ' u ovuwv tunuaiuu ivjwvm HO IIB^IUV' able and absurd. ^larvioe had applied himself to tb? study of Ihw. but his erratic habits of mind unfitted him tor the sober and practical duties of that profession. Fortunately for him. his patrimony was sufficient to maintain him without any active exertion on his part, lie rer-ided with his mother (a fine old Methodist lady) and his sister LI!en, of whom I shall say little )f?st it should he suspected that she was an object of my idolatry; in fact, the has but little connection with the incidents of this fiarra tive. All of Marvine's though la were tinctured with the sobre hues of his favorite readings, and his conduct was controlled bj th? same eril influences to such a degree that I began to hare serious fears that the morbid condition of his mind would end in a hopeless form of icsaaity. Like most melancholy persons, however, he had his seasons of joyous excitement, and while these lasted?which was generally for a very brigf period, he was a most delightful companion. On the day to which my narrative refers, he was unusually hilarious. The tempest appeared to have an exhiliarating effect on his spirits. He insisted oa continuing our walk, though tho thunder nearly stunned us with its reverberations, and the lightning was almost one continuous gleam. We were now beyond the limits of the city; only a few buildings?chiefly manufactories of one kind or another?cculd be seen; and it soon bccame manifest that we should need soma kind of shelter, for the rain already begin to fall quite rapidly. The first open door which presented itself was that of a saw-mill?a very gloomy edifice ?inside of which the puffing of the steam engine and the harsh noi?e of the machinery produced almost as much racket a* the elemental war without. We entered and took seats on a pile of huge logs which were soon to be submitted to tne action of the saw. At this time, Marvine was indulging himself in one of those fits of boisterous merriment which I always regarded with painful apprehension, as they were suggestive of a maniacal prwcliviiy " 11a ! ha! ha!?bravo!'' shouted be. "What a delicious life might be passed in a steam saw mill I love the rattle of those cog-wheels. The saws themselves seem to be dancing to the music. That broken winded steam engine, like an old asthmatic minstrel, does its best to assist the melody. By heavens ! I'd work here ail day and half the night for the mere fan of the thing. The bustle of the place excites, intoxicates me. more than the whirling, tumultuous delight* of a ball-room." Just then, one of the laborars brought out a board which had been separated from the log which was then on tha movable fpame-wnrir that hang* on the timbers in contact with the teeth of the ?a*. " I gay, old fellow," cried Mnrvine. "what ?ort of wood is that? Mahogany' Sure enough, if is mahogany. I might have known that. What kirni of cabinet work is that intended for, old dry bones' What is to be made of these, eh ?" "Coffins," said the man, in a tone of impressive solemnity, as if it were intended to rebuke the levity of his questions. '-These here boards, sir, is intended tor coffins." Avaunt.?thou bird of ill omen!" cried Marvine. "Whataoroak the detestabic fellow h:u!?a very raven, by Jupiter! I tell Warn what, niv firioomv friend, you ?ra nnt fit . r-% * J ?? - ? f jT this lively business. and if I soe your employer, I shall advise hiui to discharge you at very short notice. Confound your churchyard intouatirms. The very machinery aeeins to have caught it up,?and the steam apparatus, which discoursed su-h pleasant music a few minutes ago, now sighs like a brokenhearted widow.*' " That board." continued the laborer, without condescending to take any notice of Marvine's singularities, "that board, sir, will make a good strong box f >r somebody. The gram is crooked, too, and there's a queer-looking knot in one end of it." At this moment, Marvine grasped my arm forcibly, like a man in convulsions. His face had become deadly pale, and his whole frame was excessively agitated. With a quivering Anger, be pointed to the knot in the board, to which the laborer had called our attention. It resembled the form of the letter M. ' You see,M said Marvine, " it is marked with my initial. As soon as I saw that hoard, I felt that it had some connection with my destiny. Yes, I felt a chilling presentiment at the first sight of it. That board is to make my coffin !** As the rain bad now abated, I hurried him out of the building. There was such a change in his appearance and behavior that he scarcely seemed to be the same person who entered tho mill fifteen minutes before, iio now looked like an iui?g<> of despair, and remained obstinately silent as I conducted bim homeward, llis mother and sister,who were well acquainted with bis infirmities, had entreated me to keep a watch on bis conduct. This proved to be a vary troublesome duty, but friendship and humanity called for its performance, and I did not shrink from the task. Having committed Marvine to the care of his family, I left him for awhile, hoping that the soothing attentions of the ladies would dissipate the "thick-ooming fancies" which tormented him. But within ftn hour after I separated from bim, I received a note from bis sister,with the information that he was dangerously ill. I was in some measure prepared for this intelligence, but conceiving that it would be in my Dower to irive some einltnitian nf ?ho c?us66 of his illness, I hastened to his dwelling t>lace, and found him laboring under a violent brain fever. In his wild exclamations he made fre<juent mention *f "the mahogany board." and this circuinstanee was very perplexing to the ansiou.s friends who stood aruund his bed. I did not find an opportunity to make them acquainted with the event of the morning, but I conceived a project which I thought weuld be likely to remove t&e cause of Marviue's disorder. In abort. I resolved to get possession of the board, and either deatroy it or have it used tor some purpose which would effectually counteract Marvine'c fear that it would become his coffin. As quickly as possible, therefore, I returned to the saw mill, and sought an interview with the proprietor, lie was a gentlemanlike and humane man, and I deemed it advisable to en1 trust him with a full accoAit of Marvine'a strange illusion, and the affliction which it had brought on his relative*, hoping that this confidential statement would induce Mr. Elkhorn, the owner of the mill, to eo-operate with me in the plan I had farmed to rid Marvino of his .1 t_ ?li. .4.4: r uioucroiug puiuiMj. xii lOis eipcciaiiun l *m not disappointed. Mr. Elkhorn cordially approved my endeavors, and promised to give them all the assistance in his power. The fatal board was pointed out to him, and he ordered one of his people to lay it by in a secure place uatil it should be sent for I now returned to Marvine's dwelling and ascertained that, after a short slumber, he had wakened in a more tranquil state of mind, and BkU Vi/.M m .a.. n* a % * h ? t akaa1 tn.l WS0 "Ul?

I I began to hop* that the strange faoov ef the I morning had baen forgo??: wit, when the1 A ladies withdrew, Marrine began to speak of the mahogany board with a degree of calmness and self-possession, though hi? thoughts on that subjeot had lost none of their extravagance. He mentioned the hypothesis of some German author, that any object which is connected with our destiny always oommandi our earnest attention at first sight. He deolared that the mahogany board had produoed a thrilling sensation through his whole corporeal system as sx>n as it was brought within his view?even before the workmen nad mentioned the purpose for which it was intended, and before he observed the knot whioh bore such a striking re semblance to the initial of his own name. ' I firmly believe," added he, ''that this board will be used to make my coffin, but now that the first shoek hfw passed away, I can contemplate that fast with composure and resignation." \\ hile he was thu3 speaking. I secretly congratulated myaelf on luy success in negotiating for the borrd. and believing that I would soon Kor.i t Vi t- r\A i*r o r n olvn !ntn a ttrai-tfinul damrtn. " ?? " "? " (' "vuvn. u^.uu..stration of his mistake, I refrained from all verbal argument on the subject. When I took leave of Marvine. I called on an ingenious cabinet-maker and engaged him to make a dressing case of a piece of mahogany, which I promised to send to him on the following morning. This dressing caao I intended to present to Marvine, presuming, that when ho saw the terrific board roducod to that harmless form, it would ceiiso to be the object of his melancholy forebodings. And now, accompanied by a sturdy lad whom I had engaged to carry the board, I repaired once more to to the saw mill, intending to take possesion of my purchase. Cut on examining theplace whero it hid been deposited.we found that it had beon removed, although Mr. Elkhorn. in my presence, had given strict orders to the contrary. He was indignant, and indeed quite angry at their act of disobedience, and applied himself immediately to discover who had committed :t. ilis son, who was also a junior partner in the business, proved to be the offender, lie had not Heard his father's directions concerning the board, and having received an order for a large amount of mahogany timber, on the preceding day, he had caused the whole building to be ransacked, and every board in the place was required to meet tKo liiimQlw) TKo Kj^ftrrl ?-KIaK fi ra J t?-? vuu V> X MV W'? I V* 'I UIV/U U^UI VQ 1U I Ui-> 3tory was the lust found on the premises, and <vhen measured, it was found to contain precisely the quantity which was wanted to make up the amount which tho order called for. Oa inquiry, I found that the wholesale purchaser who had possession of the board whs a coffin-maker in extensive business, who supplied half the undertakers in thecity. I hastened to their main workshop, resolving still to have the board, if possible. But at their establishment work was done with almost magis celerity. The whole amount of boards brought from thd mill on the preceding day had been "worked up," and a huge pile of coffins, of all sires, waa the result of t^eir manufacturing activity. Kesolviug not to be balked even by the Parca themselves, I examined the pile and found, at last, the very coffin whicn contained the ominous knot. The planing and polishing of the hoard had made the mark more distinct, and it now appeared a* perfect an M as ever waa formed by tho pencil. I bought tho coffin, against which I now harbored the most unreasonable ill-will, and resolved to burn it without delay. I directed it to be sent to my lodgings immediately, and went home to await its arrival. Two of the cabinet maker's people soon came with their load. I seized a hatchet with the most vindictive spirit, and was about to split the unlucky article to pieces R3 a preparation for committing it to trie flames, when, to my great astonishment and dismay, I discovered that it was the wronsj box. Burning with indignation, I flew back to the coffin-makers and begnn n serious expostulation. but he handsomely apologized by saying thfit Mr. Simon, tho andertftkar. hn<t nr?wi ously selected that particular coffin among a "lot" which he hail purchased a little while before I had bargained for it. This circumstance had been forgotten by the foreman of the factory when he sold tho article to mo. but as the cnc which had been sent to me was exactly of tue same size, appearanoe. and quality, no one supposed that any objection would be made to it. and indeed the foreman candidly admitted that he thought I would be unable to discover that it was not the ?ame. Still in pursuit of that unlucky coffin, I proceeded forthwith to Mr Simon's place of business. But before I reached that place, I encountered a messenger from Mm Marvine, who implored me to come immediately to her house. I could not evado their summons, and on my arrival. I found that Marviae bad relapsed and was now in a dying condition. He was insensible, and expired within ten minutes after I entered the house. On the fourth day after his disease, I attended the funeral. The body had been placed In ?*n aaAR n T - ? U - ? ** IU ICO VUUl 11 WCl'UC J. CUICI CU IUO UiiQlil Uf r Ul death. Even at that time, my repugnance for tho fatalistic doctrine? which my departed frinnd had entertained, made me hope that the coffin whioh I then saw in the dimly lighted room was not the one whioh had been composed of the curiously marked board; but nlas! that hope soon deserted me. On the side of the coffin which was nearest to the shaded window, the mark of ill omen appeared with fearful distinctness. I glanced at the countenance of the dead man, and fancied that I saw a srnilo of triumph on the pallid lips, which seemed to upnraia me u?r my oosnnate sxepticism. However, the reader must not suppose that my previously conceived opinions were changed or modified in the least by the incidents related in this narative; for it is very ?*asy to conjecture how ?uch things might happen, without any supernatural interposition. A distressing affaik occurred day before yesterday on the west sido of the river, which has plunged three of our most respectable families into the greatest distress and consternation, and which may yet be productive of the most embarrassing difficulties. We suppress the real names of the sufferers, at their earnest request. On the afternoon of the day named, Mrs. A received a visit from two of her neighbors. Mrs. li. and Mrs. C. Each of these ladies was the happy mother of a little daughter, about six months old. They brought their infanta with them, and at tea time, all three of the children having fallen asleep, placed them on the bed in Mrs. A.'a chamber, and went te supper. Now, in the family of Mrs. A. are two young gentlemen boarders, who have more desire for sport and mischief than good sense. Coming home to sapper these scapegraces chanced to pass the door of Mrs. A'? room, which was opened, and saw the three babies lying asleep. Actuated by the very spirit of mischief, they set to work and actually changed the clothing of the three innocents, placing the clothes of Mrs. A 's baby upon Mrs. B.'? baby, those of Mrs. B.'a baby upon Mrs, C.'s baby, and those of Mrs. C.'s baby upon Mrs. A.'s baby. This done they went to supper. and entertained the ladies with their wittv conversation until the hour for departure arrived. It iru then quite dark, and the ladies each picked up the babe ahe supposed to be her own, and left for home. The mistake was actually not discovered until next morning?and then there was a scene of terrible consternation. The mothers were almost frantic. The babies all had light hair and blue eyes, and looked so much alike that to distinguish them was almost impossible At length each mother took the ohild she thought was hers, and went home, but took with her also the terrible doubt that perhaps she had Eot the wrong babj The young men. on einz referred to, could not tell in what manner they had changed the elothei.
