- In the meantime, the party who had feswed
Henry. Werner were quietly and steadily pursu
ing their way back to the while cttlc1hent, and
py home. With heart and feeling wild with
emotion, he could scarcely wait to reach it, to
anxious was he to know the fa'.e of his poor
wife. . As they ncared the lane which led to the
house, they met several of the neighbors, whose
frantic and care-worn looks told them something
liad happened. Poor Henry flew on wings of
love, and before they had time to explain, he
aw iliat his own dear home was a heap of ru
ins. " Where, oh I where is my wife and child ?
Kind friends, tell me, I pray P Ah ! wretch
that I was, to ever leave you! " and sinking ex
hausted upon the ground, he knew nothing more
until he was removed to the house of one of the
neighbors, where he was gradually restored to
consciousness, and a knowledge ot ins desolate
situation. Sad it was, indeed, to witness his
anguish, as he called upon his loved, lost Em
ma. " There was a time," said he, " when I could
not harm the meanest thing that lives. Wild
beast and reptile called forth my natural sympa
thies ; but, in a few short hours I have grown a
fiend I Despair and agony have given me
trength ; henceforth I only live to wreak my
vengeance upon that savage race who has de
spoiled my heart of all that made life desirable.
Is there any even one of this stout band who
will join me ? If so, my friend and brother,
come, and every savage wretch we kill will
wecten the pangs of anguish which are des
tined te All my weary heart."
When he had ceased speaking, a stout and
fcraway form stepped forth, and grasping his
hand, while tears of sympathy were glistening
in his eye, he said,
" Yes, my friend; Joe Hardy will jine you,
and fight tell every drap of blood he has is spilt
to kill them d h d varmint ,! A a I have said

He was much overcome by nis own feelings,
for he had touched upon a subject and scenes
. i i ii i i . i r -
upon which ne seiuom unreu io spc. j
"It made a child of him, and he must stop.
Henceforth he and the unfortunate Henry
were to be as brothers ; f or truly they were, hi
misery. For the present, they joined the same
party and retraced their steps to the forest, ho
ninir to find some clue to the destiny of the
wife and child of poor Werner. But all, alas !
was vain, for they had no trace of them ; they
did not even know that they lived, and felt that
it wds more than probable they were long ere this
put to death, especially as it would be risking so
much to be encumbered by a woman and child.
Sad consolation 1 btit tiiat was the best that could
be offered to poor Henry, who little thought that
his beloved wife and child, after suffering so
roach were now protected and cared for by the
horrid creatures against whom their vengeance
was aimed. They scoured the country, and met
several straggling parties of Indians, whom they
hot down like .wolves j every one of which Joe
Hardy would stop to scalp, that he might add

sweetly did she sleep that night, for shedrean
cd of her home and her Henry. It wns late,
the next morning, when she awwke and- found
Iter darling babe still asleep upon her arm. The
old squaw brought her iooio fresh rail it and the
best she had to eat, which greatly refreshed her,
and h physical strength was soon restored by
the kindness she reoeived in the old chief's wig
wam. . . ..:... ,
Boon after she arose, the old chief (who was
known by the name of " Dig Thunder" because
of his eloquence and great influence in their
.fhutk) fTrftwd, 4 fmi g i wan-
pum around ner necu, mu gmng ncr ins pipe
to smoke, he told her, in broken English, that
she should not be harmed, and that the " White
r awn must be taken care of because the Great
Spirit had sent her to him for the little on he
had lost. . "
" She is prettier too, he- said, " than little
Injun, and shall be called the White Fawn, be
cause she is to be the daughter of the great and
mighty Big rnunacr."
It was a great consolation to poor Emma to
be treated kindly, and to see that her -child had
won, in its innocent beauty, upon the heart of
the chief, and could but hope that her life was
spared to see happier days, and Vet be restored
to her beloved husband. It was but a faint hope
yet it helped to cheer her on in her lonely ex
istence. Day after day she witnessed the grow
ing beauty of her child, and would sit, by the
hour, and endeavor to trace in its lineaments a
resemblance to the husband of her heart s idola
" Perfect happiness"," thought she, " cannot
exist in this world. I made an idol of my own
Henry, and I was idolized. Our all was laid
at an earthly shrine, and can it be that we were
punished because we loved too well r Uod ol
Mercy, no! it cannot bo that the holiest and pu
rest of nature's ties could be too deep and
too ' devoted Oh ! from my inmost heart
I have- ever felt the beauty of the marricge
vow; its purity nnd truia. xhy word has
taught it, and a holy instinct confirms it."
Time rolled on, and the red men, tired of keep-
incr up a continual warfare against the whites,
remained for a while passive, amusing them
selves with their wild fantastic sports, and with
hunting and fishing, while the squaws were left
ut home, to perform the menial labors of life.
Nearly five years had passed away, and tho

dress of deer skin, ornamented with beads and
porcupine quills, and her belt .of wampum, and

miniature Indian queen, as she really was con
sidered by all in the camp. She was too young
to comprehend her .situation, and . all to her
seemed bright and beaut it ul. - I bus she grew

consolation. But the thought that by ignorance
alone she could continue happy, and that she
must dwell forever in the deep forest with In
dians only, almost drove her to distraction.
Then she would commit herself to the Almighty
Ruler of the universe, ana trust thai inrougn
His providence they wonld be rescued before
her child had attained to vears of - maturity.
But, poor Emma! even her prosperity was not
secure, for she trembled when she thought
of Big Injun, who had resigned her, with no
little disnleasurc, to his chief, and had repeated
ly asked her for his "wife. For a long time he
had been absent, and slie began once more to
feel free from that terror which his presence at
the camn alwavs created. It was her custom
to wander forth for hours at a time, and com.
raune with Nature and Nature' God. The
vast wilderness her sacred temple was. The
forest birds and zephyr' breeze combined to
chant with her Jehovah praise. And trees,
and birds, and flowers were all she had to wor
ship with at Nature' holy shrine. '
The hollow glen it pure response would give,
And purling brooks in silvery tones reply ;
While songs and prise of eveiy tiling that lived, .
Were borne by sersphs'upward to the sky.
In one of these wild and solitary commu
nings with Nature, seated in the vast forest,
and overcome by the drep sorrow of her devo
ted heart, she at last fell a victim to him who of
all others she mostly 1'earcd t for her former
captor, Big Injun, had determined, in his enve
nomed heart, to nave me prue ne so eageriy

cavern, he thought best to make that a present
place of abode, sure mnt no human eye could
there discover them'. There, in that awful spot,
poor Emma begged for death once more tooome
to her rescue; but, left to the pitiless and cruel
savage, she could only pray for strength to en
dure on to the last.- Spreading for her his blan
ket, and using the precaution of binding her fast
to a log for fear she might escape, he bade her
rest while he would go in search of some food.

At last, overcome by grief and despair, she
lay calmly and quiotly, expecting every moment

In an instant hope irradiated her bosom, and

"Ulu" she exclaimed, " could 1 but burst

I might make them hear me.- Rather would I
fall into the hands of the wildest banditti, than
be left alone to this horrid savage."
Nearer and still nearer the sound approached,
till there was no doubt but several persons were
coming towards the cave, and she could at lost
distinguish voices, and her own beloved lan
guage caught her ear. franuo wiui joy, sne
screamed with hysterical delight, and in a mo
ment more she saw several figure approach the
mouth of the cavern by tho dim light of a torch
which they carried before them, -
' Hero, Ned, why the devil don't you hold

the cave that I heard the voice. It was a fe
male in distress, and I know it."
"Yes," replied his companion, " it was a pan

life in looking alter it, you can lake tne torch
and go it ; but you don't git this chap, I say."
" Oh I Uod I " cried kmma ; " thou hast Heard

In a moment more the sullering iumma v.'as
kindly released from her cords, and found her
self in the presence of several sturdy moun
taineers, to whom she committed herself "for

are surely sent to be my protectors, and save
me from that vile and hateful Indian."

FROM DLACKW00D S EDINBURGH HACAIIICE. .
(CW in iud.)
The sun at length went down behind the
Aiguille du Goute, and then, for two hours, a
sctne of such wild and wondrous beauty of
such inconceivable and unearthly splendor
burst upon me, that, spell-bound and almost
trcmblm? with the emotion its magnificence
called forth with every sense, and feeling, and
thought absorbed by its brilliancy, I saw lar
more than the realization of the most gorgeous
visions that opium or hasheesh could evoke, ac
complished. At first, everything abont us a-
bove, around, below me sxy, tne mountain, ana
the low er peaks appeared one uniform creation
of burnished gold, so brightly dazzling, inai,
now our veils were removed1, the eye could
earcelv bear the splendor. As the twilight
gradually crept over the lower world, the glow
becamo stUl more vivid, and presently, a the
silvery on the summit, stealing slowly down the
very track by which th sunset glories had passed
upward and away.. But it came so tardily that
I knew fl woull be hours before we derive, any
actual benefit from the light. One after another
the guides 'c!! eslecp, until Onlj' three or four
remained round tne embers oi tne lire, tnougiit-
fulty smoking their pipes. And then silence,
impressive beyond expression, reigned over our
ir oluted world. . Often and often, from Clwmou
i i, I had looked up at evening towards the dark-
ling position of the l rands mulcts, and thought,
almost with shuddering, how awful it must be
for mer to pass the night in Such i remote, eter
nal, and frozen wilderness. And now l was
lying there in the very heart of its icrodhnd
and appalling solitude.' In. such close commu-
fiimHk WiUi nature ilk hor grandest crpect, with no
trace of actual living world beyond the mere
speck that our little party formed, the mind was
carried far away from its ordinary trains of
thought a solemn emotion of mingled awe
and delight, and yet self-perception of abject
nothingness, alone rose above every other feel
ing. ., A vast untrodden region ot cold, ana si
lence, and death, stretched out, far and away
from us, on every side; but above, heaven, with
its countless watchful eyes, was over all ! r
It was twenty minutes to twelve when the
note of preparation for our second start was
sounded. Tairraz shook up the more drowsy of
the guides, and they were soon bustling about,
and making their arrangements for the work be
fore us. They had not much to carry n ow.
Everything, with the exception of a few bottles
of wine, some small loaves, and two or three
cold fowls, was to be left on the Grands Mulets
there was no danger of theft from passers-by,
as Carrier observed. This quarter of an hour
before midnight was, I think, the heaviest du
ring the journey. Now that we were going to
leave our lodging, I did feel uncommonly tired;
and wild and rugged as it was, 1 began to think
the blankets and wraDners looked verv com
fortable in the ruddy firelight, compared to the
glooming desert of ice before us. The moon
was still low that is to say, the light on ihe
mountain had not come farther down than the top
of the Aiguille du Goute, so that we were in
comparative darkness. Three or four lanterns
were fitted up with candles: and Jean Auirraz
had a fine affair, like a Chinese balloon, or more
truly the round lampions used in rench illumi-
nations, only larger; ana this ne lieu oeninu mm
to light me as I followed." "Michel Devouassoud
took the lead; we camo after him with regular
numbers of guides, each traveler having a lan
tern carried before him, and then another guide
or two, lightly laden. In this order, in single
file, we left the Grands . Mulets not by tne
scrambling ronte of our arrival, but by the upper
portion of the rocks, where we descended ai
once, in a few feet, to the snow. As we passed
the upper Mulets, we heard our Irish follower
"keeping it up" by himself in most convivai
fashion, and singing 'God save the Queen" to
his guide. Soon afterward we saw his lantern
glimmering onur traces; ana tne ngni oi me
isecond aspirant was also visible, moving about
before his start.
The snowv side of Mont Blanc, between the
Grands Mulets and the Rochers Rouges near
the summit, is formed by three gigantic steps,

was by o mean difficult: for the snow was nara

our work; but a lacthcrn cup of Dt. Ooorge put
a lilflo lilo and warmth into us, for we were
ohilled with the delay, and it was now intcniicly
oold. We also saw the other lantern approach

the effect of our silent march was now unearth
ly and solemn, to a degree that was almost pain
fully impressive. Mere atoms in this wilder-'

dot of light aided the guide to select. The re-
