Karagne's heights were tinged with the rays of the setting «un, on a beauti-ful evening in the month of August, IB—' that a little cavalcade, consisting of a guide, as usual, half soldier, half moun-taineer,— a man Somewhat past the mid-dle age of-life, a ywmg offioer in meni uniform, and a lively girl of a^ seventeen or eighteen, engaged in famil-iar chat, and occasionally interrupting their conversation by an outbrei^ ot buoyant mirth, Were passing at an ea^ trot on the road between Barreges and Luz, in the department of t^e Lower-Py-renees. "Favhcr," said the young girl, "I have wagered with cousin Alfred, that I will reach St. Mary's lower before he does : will you let me win ? The road is so very goodr "AVeU, then—but mind I no foolirfi pranks, Marietta I Alfi%d, I confide her to you—keep a steady «ye upon her." "A fine guardian, to be sure I" said the young gu-1 with a most provoking toss of uer head : and patting lightly on the neck of her little pony, she started ofif at a gal-lop. The young man gave the spur to ills own horse, and rode close at her side. Tne ground was hard and resounded to che teet of the horses, each of them en-deavi^ ring to pass the other. Suddenly che horse of tte y o i ^ g^aidian, in ma-king a forward spring to pass by com-panion, slipped with his forefeet on some r junded pebbles in the road, and fell; the girths broke, and the cavsJier fell forward on the neck of his cbarger, which was speedUy onits legs again. The young lady, who was already far ahead, immedi-ately rode ba(^ "Oome, cheer up, poor cavaliw mine,— there's no harm done," cried the lively girl, springing lightly from her horse. Alfred, without replying, affected to be uusy repairing the broken girth; Why, surely you are not hurt, Al-fred she inquired in a tone of tremu JUS alarm. Oh ! not in the least, fair cousin," an-swered Alfred, in a tone half sad, half jo- King ; "but it would seem there are days entu-cly subjected to the influence of one's evil genius :—d^ys in which there weighs upon one's mind, I know not what fatal presage of misfortune." "Simpleton 1" exclaimed tiie young girl, striking playfully, with her glove, the hand which Alfr^ preferred to aid her in remounting her pony—"at your dreams and presentments again !—you will make me low-spirited, too, and then we should make, you know, but a sorr^ pair at the Saint^uveur ball this evening, whidi I have been anticipating fcnr the last week. Why;'-fbr'Slfame^i^atfd^ ft^satloiV fa pebble rolling beneath your horse's feet ought not to make you so down-hearted.' At this moment they were overtaken by Marietta's father and the guide : in a few words the mishap was explained : Alfred remounted his horse, and the little group shortly afterwards entered the court-yard of the Hotel des Pyrenees at Luz. Our three travelers mi^ht be classed in the first division of Sterne's enumerar tion :—^those who have nothing to do.— M. d' Ambray and his daughter were in-habitants af Toulouse, and Alfred, a lieu-tenant of marines, and nephew to M. d' Ambray, had come to pass with them a six months' leave of absence. Alfred was to marry his cousin, and looked forward with impatience to the pe-riod of his imion ^ t h the pretty and be-loved Marietta, who had scarcely attained her nineteenth year ; her eyes were black, brilliant and piercing, as is usual with Southern beauties ; whilst the ridi tres-ses of her dark brown hair clustered in profusion over a forehead of the purest white, and on cheeks of a deep roseate tint. Alfred was tall, slender and some-what pale ; but the ease of his manner, and his countenance, impressed with a certain character of thoughtfulness and meloncholy, preposessed almost eveiy eye in his favor. It was the height of the season, and SaintrSauveur waes.crowped—^that p r e^ little town, seated on a gentle.slope, with the river Gave at its feet. The sad foreboding ^ t h which his mind h ^ been haunted during the day, had the slightest foimdi-t'on. And then, without farther thought on the subject, he leaned against the doer of the saloon, searching amongst the crowd of faded forme, rc-eplendant with jewelry, features heigh'.- sned with rouge, and eyes sparkling with arrificial Inatre, for the cbaraiiqi; little iiead, and the sweet look of his lovely lit-tle Marietta. The harsh voice of the banker reciJled the young sailor from his reverie. "You have won, sir," said he, in a sharp and grating tone. And the banker ptished toward him a heap of gold. "I I" said Alfired, approaching the tar ble, "nay, but that cannot be possible." "He refuses 1" cried one of the players, leaning his l^lbdVs on table, and grasping with his eyes, glittering pile of l^uis d' ors. "Pshaw I are such things ever refused?" That evening, at Saint^aitveur, there was dancing on one side, and play on the other. Here the glare of wax4%hts, ^e taken upon yourself to give me the lie in their presence. Pray, sir, what may he your name T* "Insolent fellow 1" cried Alfred with concentrated rage. "Just as it may please you,"—replied the banker, with impnrturable calmness. "Then you are equally unacquainted with my name. I have the choice weapoas, sir. Now 'tis as w^yoa should know, ^at the Izard-hunter those mountains is not more sure ofliiB fille, than I am of my pist(^" *'You have a mind fo frighten me !" said A^Ped is^tiently. "I Inot the least," replied the method-ical banker, with ^pathetic indlference, and the same cold sneer and smfle of sparkling of diamonds on the foreheads of duplicity. "But I cannot find it in my senseless on the bleeding corpse of Alfred. It was Marietta. • » » » • » The physicians «ajs that she may oas day recover her senses: but that is scarce-ly to be hopsd. Such as have never wandeted out of England may dei^aate-this stoiyasim-probablew Bat aot so with those who are pa^cularl^ acquiunted witii tk» fieri <e intensity with which tiie piunions rage in Southern bosoma Beneath the cotrf ex-terior of the banker was shrouded demon-iac hate I The baidter live4 ; Ihe young officer died as related. the women, the confused mnimur of lively conversation, drowned in thlf harmonious voice of the orchestra:—ther^t^o or three wax-lights on a table, round n^hich were seated a group of grave, anxious looking thoughtful men,—a few w<N|ds Exchanged at intervals, a^for accoalibaiiment, the metallic sounds of the handfuls of gold, which rolled about and tinklal as they fell. r When our pretty Marietta ^ Ambray entered the saloon, leaninjgi^n Alfred's arm, the crowd made way for her, every-one admiring the handsome co iple as they advanced up the ball-room. In a short time afterwards, beset with invitations, was dancing, sowing, and obi vious of all around her ; forgetful alik^^' her fatiber, ot p3oi Alfred, who was fo^i ring her ev. ery motion with a lover's e; es, but wsa seized with a fit of sadness 1 >r which he was at a loss to account The dances were all made ip, the ball-room was fiUed to suffocatiod The young man, fatigued with the glare of light, the bustle and the heat, entered tie adjoining room, and approached the haaard-table.. Come, gentlemen," cried khe banker, "there is still a stake or twojto be made up. The players sat motion!^ looking at each other, but made no rc^. "Make the rest, sir," said Ailted, uncon-cernedly, willing to try whether the sneering crlbd another. The young sailor cast a rapid glance at the players, whose eyes wei«^ all fixed up-on him, and addressing the banker, said. "This, sir, I take it, is a joke. It is quite impossible that all this can belong to meT "But it is all yours, sir," replied the banker, in the same cold tone, and with a bitter smile—" You held the 'deal, and the cards pay 1" "Then, gentlemen," e x c i s e d Alfred, "The deal is void r A prolonged murmur of astonishment ran throughout the assembly. "I was not aware that I w u playing for so high a stake," continued wyoung sea-mab; "and had I lost, mdif&sstftedly I would not have paid." The banker was a man, as yet in the prime of life, bat grown old tefore his time, by care, and frequent watchings, and in-dulgence in the baser passions; with livid, hollow cheeks, and a restless and cun-ning, though sunken eye, imparting to his look a. character at once false, forbidding and sinister. ' Ah I" said he, leaning back in his chau-, his pallid lips curling with a faint laugh of scorn and derision. "Indeed, young gentleman I but you vknUd most certatnly have paid it, though ; and that^too in good hard Louis-d'ors, such as these, or in pow-der from the Royal Arsenal 1" Alfred made a convulsive spi^g back-wards "Liar I" he exclaimed, in a hollow voice. The banker sat motionless ^ ])nt his thin lips quivered wit i suppress!^ emo-tion ; the same sardonic smile still played on his features, but their paleness had fa-ded to a yet more livid and ashy hue. In an instant the players were on their feet, and grouping round the two actors in this strange and unexpected drama. Alfr^ was standing up, his hands con-vulsively clenched, and his whole figure shining with rage. The banker, on the contrary, was rocking himself easily back-wards and forwards in his chair, and casting round on the spectators a look of self-possessionr and complacen^, at the same time playing with the pile of gold heaped up on his right "Sir !" said he, at last, injuring Al-fred with his ^e, from - head io fooV with the coolest eflfnmtery, "It is more than probaUe yon do not know who I am ; that indeed, is to me sufficiently clear.—And as for these gentlemen her^' t he added, with a waive of his head towartt the spec-tators, "I have every reason,]^suppose that^ knowing them, yov woiodriiot have conscience to assassinate you." And so saying ; he fels slowly in each of his pocket^^ from which he drew at last a small rifle-ban-elled pistol, which he placed before him on the table. A death like silence pervaded the whole room. 'There, sir !" he continued, "this is the best thing that I have to propose ; indeed, it is all that I can possibly do in order to accommodate matters. Bring the dice; he continued, in the same tone of voice, turning half round on his chair—^"and shut the door." The door of the play-room was dosed the dice placed upcm the table. The sound of the orchestra^ and of the festive ball, only reached the room as a suppress-ed and distwut murmur. "Now then," said he, "here we have the dice and a pikt^l ; the highest thrower kills the other. We shall settle it thus, eh r The young sailor afqDtoached the table, seized the dice4>ox in a mere desperation, sho(^ it with ccmvulsive energy, cast one furtive glance towards the balkoon door —and ^rewl As if bowed by an electric shock, every head was simultaneously bent over the cloth. The action of this terrific drama had passed so n^tid^—the end was so near at hand, that one onld scarcely be-lieve in the reality of the atrocious scene thus enacting, without noise or intemp-tion, around the accurssd table. The banker in a loud voice reckoned up the points "Six and six are twelve, and one—^thir-teen ; a vjry good throw' upon my. word, young gentleman I— a good throw I" He took the dice, replaced them in the box, and with an air of the coolest ef-fronte^, addressing the roectatcm— Thii^n?" he exctamied, "a very good point — but it's always an unluc^ numb^. Come, gentlemen, who bets fifty Louis-d'ors on me ?-r-Fifty Louis on the lifefrf* ^at young gentl^en ^nder V he continued, fixing his ^^es with malig-taut and deadly glare on the young lieu nenant, wheqiiaHed iavol—4arylyl»nieaUi it The players turned pale, and remained silent "Well, then," said he, with a smile, "as there seems to be no bet, here's for my-self^— and the dice roUed upon the table. "Fifteen I—You have lost sir. A pity too, with so good a point: the affair, gen-tleman, was well contested, at all events. So then, sir, your life belongs to me. Are you ready ?" All pre^nt drew back in-^ terror. The banker, still stretched ontin his chair, was quietly engaged in adjusting the lock and carefully examining the priming of h^s pistol "I am ready," replied the young man, standi ng motionless before him. A little more room, if you please, gen-tlemen," said the banker, at the same time bowing to the spectators, imd motioning them with his arm to stand one side. " Fire," exclaimed Alfred, uncovering his breast, his countenance beaming with intrepidily and unshrinking resignation. The banker withdrew his hand, and raised his hand. The spectators breathed once more.— The unnatural scene had protracted too long and for an instant t h ^ was hope. "We have not chosen seconds," he re-marked. "But as for that matter," he ad-ded, after a moment's silence, "these gen-tlemen may serve as witnesses in the case of need." He leveled again and fired. The young lieutenant lay gpraspingon the floor i:i the last agonies o£ death ! "The cards pass, gentleman," cried the banker, as he laid the pistol, still smoking on the tall*. At the noise made the report, the folding doors of the saloon were burst qpen, and the crowd rushed in. lliere waa a pievdnff duridk-ra young girl fell DON^ SIT VP TORER.—^A Green Moibitain boy fell in love with a very pretty girl, and determined 'to court her.' To that e&d he dressed himself in his 'Sunday-go tomeeting,' went to her fathi»'s house and found her alone. 'Haw d'ye du V said Jonathan. ' I'm nicely,' says the girl Jonathan to<^ a seat and seated him^ self in the farthest cramer of the room, as thou^ the beauty was a thing to he feared, rather than loved. 'Ain't you cold—hadn^yott better sit up to the fire ? says Sally, supposeing he would, of course, if he was going to make love at all, do it m a proper man-ner. ' No, I thankee ; I reckon I'm comfort-able,' returned J<»atiiaa. ' How is your marm T said SfJfy. ' Well, she's compiamin' a little,' an-swered Joaa^an.

' Here I O—yes, yoa meant hum ; Well, CO ; that is, yes ; our spotted cow's got a ca'f r said Jonathan. Sally would undoubtedly have laughed at this queer piece of information, only she was too much vexed at the speaker. At length, after much protracted silence, Sally got up a vteiy smatt edition of a scream, and in a loud voice exclaimed : ' Let me alone T ' Why,' says Jonathan, dropping his knife and stick in astcmishraent,' why, I aint a touchii^ on ye.' ' Well,' says Sally, in a voice which might be indicative of fear, but sounded very like a request ; 'welF aint you goin^ tu r Jonathan thought a moment of this ^aivocal repfy, a^then placing his knife in his pocket, he drew his chair by the side of pretty Sally, gentty encircling her waist, and—^^e next week they were married. ^St. Lotus BeeHk.
