A LEGEXD OF THE WHITE MOnNTAWS.
BT MRS. SARAH JAJiE IIALE.
Fame is truly moro dependcnt on forlu
nate circumstnnccs than grcat achicvc
monts. Had Robert Wilson livcd in the
days of chivalry, his courngo and constancy
would have been tho theme of pocts and
song of ministrels; now, tho only rccord
of his name, or even ofhis cxistence, will
be this unpretending story.
The adventurcrs entcred the deep forest,
and, guided by the trnces of the relrcating
Indians, pressed fonvard, at first, with all
the specd they could urjre. But Mcndowct

iea to uoDert tnat thc two Mohavrks were

intcrvals, tho cry ofsomc solitary birdbroke

perhaps. a rustling among the dry branch

at inlervals swept onward with thc force of

They wero now safe from tho peltings of

thc rolling of the thunder, that shook to

rain, that did not fall in drops, but poured
in large streams from the black clouds ; the
howling of the wind as it raved from tho
narrow pas.-ses, or filled the hollow chasms :
the frequent and loud clash of branchcs and
trces all united to give to the sublimity,
which the aroused soul could fccl, but no
language can ever communicatc or des.
Amid this wreck of matler, and what

Thus passed tho hour till after midnight,
when, during a pauso in the wind, a strange
sound was heard. It was not likc a shriek
or a cry from any human voice, or tho yell
or tnnan from a wild bcast ; it was a deep,
dismal sound, an unearthly tone, thrilling

Robert started on his fcct. A bright flash
of lightning showed him Mendowet rising
from his inctimbcnt posturc ; his hands were
talling powerless by his sidc, and his faco
exprcssca an internnl agitation and tcrror
which a rcd man rarcly exhibils.
'Itislho voico of the Abamocho.' said
the Indian, in a tone that cvidcntly Irems
bled. ' I havo heard it onco before. He
calls for a victim.'
' U'ho is he V dcmandcd Robert, drawing

Mendowet, shrinking down as iftohide
himself from some drendful objcct. ' Hc

Iho storm and none whom he marks for do
tstruclion can cscape him.'
Robert's wholc soul had been so engross
cd with tho idea of Mary. and how to rcscuc
her, that scarco a thought or care for nny
other human being had entcred his mind
sinco ho had left Dover. The appalling
noise he had iust heard, and Mendowet's
singular mannnr, now aroused his curiosity
and he nnniired of Mnnrfnwpt whv wn

j oned to thc Mohawks to pass by, laying his

lightning showed his tall form, and tho grcy
locks that wavcd in thick masses over bis
vencrable forehead ; 'younp; man I once lcd
a host more numuerous than tho trees in
yonder forest. I was chief of a mighty na
tion now Mcndowct dwclls alone. I am
the last of my tribe.' As ho ended hc sunk
down and covercd his faco with his hands.
Robert's lifb had bccn a laborious, but a
very happy one. Hc was naturally ofa
cheerful tcmperament. and had scldom. c
ven in imagination.dwelton thd dark shadcs
of human life. Ho had felt as youth and
hcalth are pronc to feel, as if carlh was
made purposely for the happincssof man,
and cxistence would never have an cnd.
A few hours had taught him solcmn Icssons
of the vanily and chango of all crcated
lhing8. Without and around him was tho
desfroying tempcst, dashing to atoms tho
works of naturc; wilhin was Mcndowet.an
imago of moral desolation.
Robert sat down ; and whilo the picluro
of human vicissitudes was prcsentcd thus
vividly mournful to his mind, mingled with
tho thought ofhis own heartsickento? dis.
appointmcnt, bc wept likc an infant. The
tcars he shed wcro not mcrely those of sel
fish regrtrt. Ile wept for the miseries to
which'man is exposed, till his mind was in
sensibly drawn to pondcr on the bins that
must have made such miseries a ncccssary
punishmcnt. And never had he breathed
! so contntc a prayer as now came from his
soul, liumblcd belore that Alinighty powcr
who only can say to the mourner ' peacc !
lo the tempcst, be still !'
A swcet calm at Icnglh fcll on Robert's
tossed mind ; the calm of childIike confi

all would finally bo found to have bccn or
