I determined, however, to try dim thnt

eleven o'clock, I threw myself upon tlio bed

moon wm shining brightly, nml rendering
everything ns visible ns if it were ily.
I went down to the stnblo with u bridle,
prepared for the purpose, nnd n henvily
loaded whip in my hnml. I knew that it

till we came under the shadow of n fir-wood,
ml then, whether out of mischief or dread
of the darkness, he halted instantaneously,
his fore-feet so close together that you might
Imve put them into n bucket. Owing to the
depression of his shoulders lor he had no
more withers than mi hks llie way lie nail
Jerked down his dead, nml the suddenness
f the stop a monkey, ulihmigli he had linen
holding on with his teeth, must have Is-en
unsealed. For me, I was pitched n long
way over li is head, but alighted iiion n spul
so stilt and mossy that it looked ns if some
kind lisnd had prepared it lor me. Had I in
the lightest decree been stunned, or uiiuiile
lo have pained my feet, that instant he would
bnve torn me to pieces with his toeih, nml
beaten my tunneled body Into the earth with
his hool. Uut I nt once sprang to my feet,
ml faced him. I rouhl have escaped by
leaping into the wood ; but my blood was up,
my brain clear, nml my heart gnve no extra
pulsation. There he stood upon his hind
legs nearly upright, beating the air with bis
rorti-fbcl, bis mouth open, bis upper lip curl
ad, bis under one draw n down, his huge
white teeth glancing like ivory in the moon
light. As soon ns he saw me upon my lict,
lie gave a yell such ns I hail never heard from
an horse before, save once, and which be
lieve is never elicited limn that iiliiuml ex
cept when under the iloii'iinatioii of liaiilie
rago or fear.
This unearthly cry roused every living
liiug within hearing. An army of rooks
startled from their encampment in the wood,
circled and wheeled between us nnd llie
moon, shading her light, nml filling the mid
night air with their discordant screams. This
ttrneted the attention of S.itau, nnd bringing
bis fore feet to the ground, he pricked up his
ears and listened. I sprang lot ward, seized
him hy the mane, nnd vaulted upon bis hack.

Cambridge, April 24, 1844.
I have rend the prospectus w itL ereul plea
sure, and entirely approve the idnn. If il
can only obtain tbe public patronage long
enough, nnd Inrge enough, and securely
enough to main its true ends, it will contri
bute in nn eminent degree to give a healthy
tone not only to our literature, hut to public
opinion. It will enable us to possess In a
moderate compass a select library of the best
productions ol the nge. It will do morn il
will redeem our periodienl literature from
the rrprnnrh of being devoted to light nnd
superficial rending, to transitory spcri.lali on,
tnsickly nnd ephemeral sentimentalities, ana
false and extravagant sketches of life and
diameter. JOSEPH STORY.
