harmlessly upon the floor. A fiendish laugh
burst from his lips as he saw her anguish,
but she heard it not, for uttering one fearful
shriek, she fainted and fell.
it was at this moment that Kiana tore
away the frail door and entered the apart
ment. I'omalc turned in wrath upon the
intruder, and to his amazement recognized
his fe. A superstitious fear crept over
him, as he recollected the prophecy and the
warning of his goddess, and he tiemided.
Helore he could recover himself', Kiana
sprang upon him, and grappling, they rolled
upon the ground together, it was a fearful
stiife. lloth were unarmed, and the eont si
was one of hate and revenge. The sight ol
Julia's lifeless body had iuilauicd kiana lo
madness, and in his desperation he at fut
had the advantage. Tiieir limbs ' w on

twisted ami writhed together like two ser
pents in mortal combat. Long fasting and
liis bonds had weakened Kiana. more than
he was aware, a. id his struggles becnim
weaker. Pomalo perceiving this, made one
vigorous effort, and getting him beneath,
planted his knee upon his chest, and his fin
gers upon his throat. The convulsive gasps
of Kiana told how surely he was aceom
)lihing the work of death, a few seconds
nore, and his late would have been decided.
Liliha, who had been watching the combat
ants with an anxiety which told that the
lives of those she hold dear, besides her own,
depended upon the issue, by chance saw the
poignard; with the quickness of' thought she
seized it, an 1 springing forward buried it to
its hilt in I'omalc's back. It reached his

Musical Kith. For weeks past the air
has been filled with kites of every color,
shape and size such an assault the heavens
here never witnessed before so numerous
have they become that a tear was expressed
that they might draw the town up after them,
a catastrophe which some of our good citi
zens are but little prepared for. On Tues
day last a most unearthly sound, something
like a distant and prolonged wail, was hoartl,
which astonished all ears. It would swell
at times into a shriek, and then gradually die
away into a low hum. The noise was final
ly traced to a kite of curious appearance,
which had been manufactured by some sous
of the Celestial Empire. Its exalted sta
tion prevented us from examining the me
chanism which produced these sounds, bi t
we suppose it is akin to the Eoliau Harp.
Had it been raised unexpectedly during the
night, the effect would have been doleful in
deed. An unavoidable delay attending the trans
lation of the NEW LAWS " prevents
us from presenting them to the public as
soon as we anticipated.

very coolly, " you are under a mistake, it
