Upon a rock that high and sheer.

And rivers glimmered on the way.

While ever rose a murmuring sound
' From brooks below and bees around.
He listened till ho seemed to hear
' ' A voice so soft and low,
And whether in the mind or ear,
The listner scaYce mlgiit know;
" With such a tone so sweet and mild,
The watching mother lulls her child.
"Thou weary huntsman," thus it said,
' 'Thou faint with toil and heat!

Richard the First had returned from
Palestine, bringing back with him howev
cr, but n small portion of tho host he had
led thither. Tho plague had made sad
havocwith tho pride of England.' Many
of those whom tho plague had spsred, fell
from tho effects of tho burning heat, and
thirst; while the mnjor part of those who
had escaped these evils, seemed spared
that they might fall before tho lances of
the Saradens. .
On their arrival nt home, Cosur do Li
on found tha affairs of the kingdom in al
most inextricable confusion. Insurrec
tions wore common in every part of tho
realm, laws were evaded or set at open
defunco, whilst rofcbery and murder were
o!" every day occurrence. But this state
of-nffairs cou'd hot daunt the soul of
Richard, and he commenced reforming all
abuses, which had crept in the state dur
ing his absence, making new laws and en
forcing old one3, suppressing insurrec
tions, and punishing murderers and
thieves, in such a prompt and . vigorous
manner, ns to present qualities to our ad
miration, not only as a soldier, but as a
Amongst other outlaws whom tho king's
absence hud caused to nriso and flourish,
Robin Hood or tho "Archer Outlaw," as
he was sometimes called, stood pre-eminent.
Skilful in tho use of the long and
tho .cross bows, of immense strength, and
possessing n power to wield the minds of
tho most desperate, teso qualities, eon;
joined with his handsome and commanding
figure, procuring hnn immense populari
ty. IIk hudajsoeiated with him the mot
skilful archers of his time, the sufeness
of whose nnmo and whose desperate hab
its, had not only become a bye-word with
all, but had so intimidated the hearts of
iheir enemies, that they reigned monarch?
of the green wood without fear of moles
tation. They destroyed deer in tho king's
forest as a means of support, the meat not
only affording theni food, but jho sale of
the choicest portions nlTording them cloth
ing, from tho neighboring yeomanry;
nay, even tho barons, whose castles edg
ed -on the forests, did not scruple to pur
chase U haunch of venison from tho fori
ester , without inquiring its to tho manner
in which it was obtained. ; "
Richard sett about tho matter zealously,
And after s electing the choicest of his
kings and buw-meri, journeyed down to
Sherwood forest, to find, nnd if possible to
drive nway these rude and hardy outlaws.
This Was m:re easily conceived, than put
in execution; for somo time had past, &
Richard nnd his band had lingered till
weary in the forest, without encountering
aught save green oaks and a few wild
deer. " ' :
It was nbout noon, on one of these loi
tering day-si, that Richard was roaming a
bout the forest, with no companion savo
the good Gothic war sword which was
buckled to his side. A whizzing-noise at
tracted his attention, and hn raised, his
head in timo to behold an arrow enter tho
body of a buck, which was bounding light
ly past him nt the distance of- a few pa
ces. The noble animil gave a leap, one
bound, and ns tho blood gushed in torrents
from his breast, staggered and fell. Full
of rago nt this encroachment of his pre
rogative, Tor tho right of killing de-Jr in
tho royal forests belonged exclusively to
tho monarch, he cast his eyes nround him
in search of tho offender, and beheld a
knave, clad in a Vunplo garb of green,
advancing with it loosened bow Him, ho
doubted not, was tho aggressor; nnd he

Richard would have seized Vhe outlaw,
but he, as if awaro of thi prodigious
strength of his antagonist, eUling the
grasp, fitted an arrow to his bow, and di

There was a moment's pause, nnd each
gazed, for n time, in admiration, on tho
vigorous form of the other.

Scarce had the lingering echoes died up
on the nir, when a hundred arch rs ar
rayed in green with quivers filled and
bows bonded, were sjen gathering around.
'These," said their commander, "are
my merry men, the archers of tho forest,

hand, and the band disappeared behind

outlaw bent his knee to his sovereignly
