THE BOTTLE.IK?. [Flo* Tg? OKRVAIf.) While Venlee w?? yet, to her palmy days of commerce, there came thither a young Gar man merchant named Richard, a hold and Joyous fellow There was much disquiet in Germany at that time, owing to the Thirty Years' War ; for whieh reason the young mer chant was especially glad that his business called him to stay some time in Venice, where people were not bo warlike, and inhere, as ho heard, he should 2nd rich winef, the beat and moat delicious fruits, to say nothing of many most beautiful women, of whom he was a de cided amateur. Accordingly, he soon began to lead a very gay life, and was introduced into all sorts of s >ciety. Many a day passed in revelry and riot, where a!l faces were wild and loyous, ono only excepted?that of a Spanish cap tain?who, although he attended at all the pranks of the wild orew with whom Richard had associated himself, never exchanged a wcrd with bis companion?, and constantly wore an expression of strong disquiet on hit dark features. The rest willingly buffered bis presence, because he was a man of good mraru and station, who made no scruple or, several occasions of paying for the whole party. But in spite of his gaiety, money began ere long to fail poor Richard ; and he sorrowfully found that a life so extravagantly delightful must soon e^me to an en J for him The other observed his melancholy and its cause, and had their jest at the well fleeced hangdog looking wretch who c^uld not refrain, po long as a shekel remained in his purse, from suck inj* the poisonous sweets. One evening the Spaniard drew him aside and with unusual friendliness took him to at unfrequented part of the city. The young man was at first alarmed by this proceeding But he thought, ''the fellow knows that there is not much to bo got from me ; and as for my ?kin, if he covet* i hat, he must first adventure his own, which, doubtless, he thinks rather too high a stake " But the Spanish capta:.n seated himself on the wall of an old ruined building, made the young merchant sit by biui^ aud began as fol lows : 4,It appoars to ma, my young friend as if ycu were waLting in that faculty, which has become to me a burden past bearing ; that is, the power of procuring at any hour the amount of money you require, and so beinj: able to gocn with your pleasure Th;s, and many other important gifts, I will hand over to you for a reasonable sum." " But wh?t can you want with money, when you wish to get rid of the power of procuring it?" asked Richard. 44 Why the oircumstances are these : I don't know whether you are acquainted with cer tain little creatures called Dottle imps They are little black fiends, shut up in glasses Whoever possesses such a one may obtain from him whatever pleasures in life he desires, but especially unlimited gold On the otfcer hand, this accortmodatirg friend requires the soul of his possessor, provided the owner dies witheut having delivered over his imp into other bands But this can be done only by sale ; and moreover, ho must receive for it a loss sum than be paid. Mine cost me ten ducats; if you will give me nine for it 'tis yours While Richard thought over this, the Span iard continued : " I could, of course, cheat anvbody into purchasing it like any ot?.er bottle and toy, just as it was put into my own hands by a tradesman without a conscience But I should fear to burden my conscience still mere by so dofng, an J I therefore put the offir fairly and frankly before you You are yet young and lull of life, and will have man an opportunity of getticg iid of the thing when you are tired of it " "Good sir," S3id Richard, "do not think me uncivil; but I must own I have been a little chcated already in this town of Venioe, and even my nine ducats might not be of value to one who spends as I havo seen you do." 41 Excuse ine for not striking you dead," said the Spaniard haughtily " It id because I hops you will itill rid me of my bottle-imp, atd also because I am not minded to do penance, which would thereby be much increased in length ar.d severity." ?? Would yau let me make a few trials cf the thiug first?" prudently askedyonng Rich ard To what purpose7" replied the Spaniard. '? It stays with no one, helps no one but him who has fairly purchased it " Tho youth grew anxious : it was uccomfort ablo sitting there together at night in that lonely place, in spite of the captain's de clared pacific intention ; and then there hov ered before his laney all the delights which the bottle-imp would prc^uro him. lie there fore determined to nek the half his remaining cash on it, only t.ying first whether he cou-d beat down something of the price. >< y00i ?? laughed the captain, " it was for your good I asked - he highest price, and for the good of those who buy it after you, that some one may not too soon get it for t ho lowest po-siblo sum, and eo go irrecoverably to a nlaco it would bo unpolite to mention.' " Never mind," said Richard good humor ediy ' 441 than't be in a hurry to sell the wonderful thing again. If I could have it for five ducats 44 Oh, as you please, said tie Spaniard. Then, in return for the money, he h-nded to the young mun a th:n glars bottle, wh^reiii by the etarlight Richard saw something dana ing up and down As u trial, ho immediately wished to have in his right hand double the turn he had just paid, and instantly felt ten ducats there Then both went back to the inn with new and cheerful faces; the Spaniard soon took leave, without staying for ike gor eeous banquet which Rxh*rd immediately ordered, paying down to his distrustful host the ptice beforehand, while the battle imp kept filling his pockots with the desired duo '^Whoever would themselves like to pofsers such an imp, can best fancy what sort of life our young tiiend led from this day. lie bough a castle and two villas, and surrounded him self with every kind of splendor and lie spent rome time in revelry at ??? country sea's, with a crowd of idle and dis-i patcdjafcung peisons of rank, amongat was a gsy and di tinguished beauty of the place called Lucretia One day he was sitt ng with her in the garden, on the brink of n swift deep streamlet, UughiLg and jesting tUl at li-it Luo-fttia espied the oottle which luchard wore in his^est by a gold chair.

The doctor, who eame that lay to see him, was very fond of all kinds of strange animals, which he kept In spirits: and be showed the creature as one of those, kr.owir^ the doctor to be too pions a man to accept it in its own charater. The creature had become very lively, and played such an tic* in the phial, that the good man. wishing further to examine it proposed to buy it of him. To satisfy his conscience in some do *rce, Richard asked as much as be could four ducats, two dollar*, and twenty peaco. But the doctor would #ive only four ducats, ind said he must consider even of that for a few days Then in his terror the poor fellow ?ff?red the bargain for three; ana receiving the money, he at once gave it to his servant te be spent on the poor Meanwhile, his illness became more violent than ever lie lay in a constant delirious terer; and though by degrees he eame to him self again, hi* complete recovery was delayed by trouble of mind about his dueata; for as joon as he became sensible, he searched far thein under hi* pillow, and fcund them gone, lie got up. and began to consider how to tura h:s property into gold.

Tnus he must now prepare to go forth almost a beggsr. The doctor now came to him with a very grave face " Well, sir dootor," cried he, in a burst of ill-humor, " if after the fashion of yoar tribe, you come with a long bill, give me acme poi son into the bargain, for I have not a penny to buy a loaf with '* ''Not so," said the physician gravely, "I give you the price of my whole" attendance free > but here is a very rare medicine which I have put in that cup-board, which you will find needlul for the restoration of your health, *r.d for which you shall pay me two dttcats.
