THE WITCH OF GOLDING GORGE, A TALE GF THE POTOMAC.. IN SIX CHAPTERS. BY JOEL AUSTIN. Chapter V.?The Witch of Golciko Gouok. " Annie, what say you of a visit to the fa mous Witch, in her kennel up there at the Gorge?" ^ "Only this, Eddy: I'm not afraid to go; but Ma, you know, is one of the Old School people, and 1 really believe, much as she loves me, if she thought I had consulted the fortune-teller at Golding Gorge, she would conceit I was be witched by hor, and refuse me the shelter of our roof forever after, through very fear. In deed, though, I've the greatest curiosity to see her, and hear what she would say." Ah! this " curiosity " is a dangerous thing with the female sex; and whatever a woman has curiosity to see or know, that she is bound to know in the end. Berry, therefore, did not find it very hard to persuade-her to go; pro mising that he would satisfy her ma, and pro testing that his object was to explode this hum bug, and make the old beldam dissolve her pre tended league with the devil. " I'll bet you a kiss, Annie," he said play fully, "she shall sup with us under the great sycamore tree, as certain as I shall see her; and that, too, to old John's appropriate music on the bugle." In a few minutes they reached the foot of the Gorge, and Annie remained timidly behind, while Berry knocked resolutely at the close shut door, which he found after some difficulty. No reply came, and nothing indicated that the sound was heeded within. Clouds had been quietly gathering for somo time, and the rain now began to descend in downright earnest. Annie's gala-dress was threatened with total destruction; and as for Berry, he felt far from easy concerning his Annie, his beaver, and his broadcloth, lie redoubled his summons at the door; but the torrent roared so deafeningly without, and the claps of thunder were so loud and frequent?for the tempest was raging now in oil its fury?that no other earthly sound seemed as though it might rench the inmate. " Shelter yourself as well as you can, dear Annie," screamed Edwin, in an interval of the storm, "and I'll try to beat down the door? I I'll have to do it!" He gathered up a massive rock of slate-stone, as he spoke, and hurled it with surprising effort against the door; but it was barricaded within, and resisted the assault, I not budging an inch, when the missile re I hounded from it and fell heavily to the ground. | He was preparing to repeat the attack, and another great rook was actually poised above I his head for that purpose, when tho door was i suddenly opened from the inside about an inch, and a shrill, unnatural voice, distinct above all the elemental confusion, called out? " Stop! Who are you, and what do you J want?" " Let us in, good woman, for the love of j Heaven 1" replied Berry; "wo are travellers from Moorfield Hamlet?a young lady and | myself?and aro drenched in this infernal rain ! Admit us, and I will reward you well. You I need not be afraid of us," he added?observing i her evident reluctance to open the door any I further?" you need not be afraid, we will not ' harm you." J " I ain't afeard!" replied tho unearthly voice: j "let me see you first, fur its been a long time I sence Damo Goldixon's trusted mankind, an' | maybe you lie to me!" At these words, a shrivelled, tawny cou^,te. 'vanco was thrust forward, almost hid oehind matted locks of snow-white hair, to?,je<j negli gently over the face, just allowing the shac^y white brows to appear, and the retreating, lus treless gray eyes, one of which was entirely sightless. J " Come in with you, then !" she sullenly ex claimed, " but mind ye, ye must pack off as soon as ye can venture out again 1" As she spoke she removed a heavy log-bedstead from etnnd the door, with an exertion of strength sue did not seem equal to ; and the low door of ,. hut swung reluctantly on its solo rusty lunge, wide enough to permit Annie Bell and dwin, now thoroughly soaked with rain, to i mucli difficulty. Notwitliatand v !ir uucomforLttble condition, they could not but gaze with intense curiosity upon the old drone who had thus grumblingly afforded them shelter; and was now continuing her hos pi ality by kindling a brush-fire on the narrow nearth; mumbling to herself, as she knelt there whenever she ceased to blow the smoking fticl. She had not bid them sit, and seemed wholly to have forgotten their presence, were it not that wh; ?c.c,upatl?n; tLo preparation of n fire by !h. i , y dr^ themselves, proved that she had not. They sat down unbidden upon the side of the old bedstead, without speaking; and while the roar of the Potomac through the Si!' |Ut'i aud the recurr"?g clash of the feeUhant^ dashin? ?f the r'?". niade them feel thankful for even such a shelter, they ob stition' 7hltIlafeeling a tinged with super ofPnM- r" ge lng known 118 the Witch whfsn^rf K?rg??u M&rvellous 8tori-es bad been ispered about her; of enchantments she had Ilt i i'1"1? ,8ho had foretold?and even unnatural shapes she had assumed?and truly no wonder such a singular creature should have given rise to such fancies, among so simple Virgin^ PCaSaQtry RS 111111 of the Garden of ^ Her stature was diminutive; and her faco and neck an entire succession of wrinkles. Whenever she spoke, it was apparently with I the greatest pain?the muscles of her whole face and neck twitching convulsively, and with a voice strong, but completely beyond her con trol, having a most unearthly tone. A hand- I kerchief of faded blue cotton was tied care lessly around her bend; under which, every now and then, she would tuck her coarse hair white with the frosts of over five-score winters! iter long bony arms were bare, and her skinny fingers, frightful to look at, were armed liko tho wild-cat, with claws that almost appeared never to have been trimmed. Her loose garment of I homespun cloth-for frock it could not be called?was huddled on in the most negligent manner; and its color wag an excellent match I ? her 81ckJy? yellow complexion. Altogether she was as strange a looking creature as one could be persuaded, in Christian charity, to call pn'iTi t 7 L Ume the intru(lers had been enabled to observe thus much, the fire was blazing comfortably; and bidding them, by a sweep of her arm, to draw up to it, which they did, she mumbled as if to herself, but audibly I ;? ? i *ou}d y? come here, an* bid me tell it. 1 can t change it for you, or I would ! Ob ye are a comely couple, an' good is in your hearts; ye have never known trouble, but the , I worst is to come to you yet, I know '-sho con tinued aloud, as she turned to them; while the only eye she had fired up with n light like in spiration, and every nerve and vein in her neck ' and face writhed like a nest of slimy serpents: 11know what ye've come for, though ye havn't told me. Do ye fear now to hear what is written in the sealed book for ye, that yo do not ask your destiny? or do you think me a croaking wretch, that knows not what she says? Listen, then!"?and here she solemnly lifted her left hand towards the sky, and pointed, with the almost Heshless finger of the right, towards them ; while poor Annie, white as death, leaned for support upon the shoulder of Edwin, whose stout heart was moved with a strange feeline it had never known before. "Listen!" sho almost shrieked, and then lowered her voice to its hoarsest tones, while the storm without grew suddenly hushed, and her words were distinct as the sobbing sound issuing from the smoking brushwood on the hearth. "You, Edwin Berry, and you, Annie Bell, beware of the ford of the Panther Bluff?for it flows with oblivion for one of ye, and remem brance for the other-with wo for one, a?d bnny tears for the other, till this day twelve month, when that one too shall forget. Now go ; the storm is over, and I would pity you when none may see me!" Annie screamed faintly, and fell without mo tion upon the floor. While she lay there her ong sunny tresses showered like a flood of light around her?her beautiful, inanimate faco tair and cold as marble, turned upward?an expression of mingled intense terror and pain yet lingering around the mouth and brow? Edwin sprang from his chair, and advancing as if with the impulse to strike the crono, cried "Liar! imposter! miserable hag! shame upon you to play upon the gentle nerves of a timid girl thus ; take back what you have said. Oh, i take it back, I implore you!" he continued changing from invective to expostulation. "Not for my sake, for I do not care myself; but let ' . hear ^u say that it is not so, and I will ' give you gold enough to quit these paltry tricks, and live in honesty the rest of your miserable days!" The old crone's countenance was a hideous thing to look upon during ^his harangue her toothless jaws twisted from sido to side, and her remaining eye was red as blood from the excess of her passion. "Aye!" she shrieked; "Edwin Berry, you will know this night if I am an imposter, when you stretch your arms out to mo as you do now, and as vainly. Begone! begone, I say! I would be alone." Sho dashed the creaking door back on the rusty hinge, and the calm, sweet rays of the declining sun streamed into that miserable abode?only onr of the dismal spots his mission ary beams illumine. Annie soon recovered, and her first anxiety was to be beyond the gorgon eye of the strange being whom she now resolutely believed possessed of supernatural powers. Annie's pallid face, and the terror depicted in her features, much as she strove to master it i occasioned considerable alarm and conjecture to tho rest of the party when she joined them, as they were just emerging from the chasm where they liatl sought shelter when the storm surprised them. She nor Edwin returned an answer to the volley of questions which assailed them; as, " Where had they been ? What had happened?" and the like. One was possessed by fear and apprehension, tho other by anxiety 1 on account of the shock his gentle companion [ had sustained. Old John blew the bugle again, [ for supper?and more comically still; saying, that immediately after, they would set out to return; but this time Edfrin did not suiile, and Annie, poor Annie, shuddered, for both were thinking of the Witch of Goldiug Gorge.

Russia, which is the prin cipal European despotism, has vast tracts in the frozen regions altogether uninhabitable. The lands of the American republics are mostly in the temperate zones, exceedingly productivo, and favorable to the development of every ele ment of national greatness. This fact is forci bly illustrated by the extraordinary rate of in crease of our own republic, when compared with that of European despotisms and mon archies, some of which are almost stationary. This country is now progressing in the ratio of about three per cent, per annum compounded, which in 1875, twenty-four years hence, will give us a population of fifty millions; and at the close of the century, one hundred millions; If the French republic maintains itself, the popu lation of European and American republics will then outnumber the despotisms one hundred per cent., and equal that of monarchies and despotisms united. We have not estimated the probability of accessions to our number by tho withdrawal of European despotisms and mon archies from those portions of North America and the West Indies which have been permitted to remain in their hands. Nearly a million of square miles of available territory in the North, exclusivo of inhospitable tracts in possession of tho Aborigines, yet remain outside of our present boundaries, to come into the Union. [JV. Y. Sun. Capital Punishment.?In tho details of the execution of Stookely, in New York on Friday, 19th inst., may be seen the degrading and bru talizing effects of capital punishment. There were about five hundred persons present to wit ness tho great moral spectacle which a distin guished clergyman of this country once charac terized as " the rainbow of promise to the moral universe." Outside of tho prison tho usual crowd of men, women, and children were assembled, and those whp witnessed tho execution were grati fied with more than a usual share of horror. The victim struggled for six mortal minutes, to him an eternity of torture, writhing and tear ing his flesh with his nails, in a manner pecu liarly edifying to the brutal crowd, who feasted their eyes upon his choking agonies. If tho object be simply to annihilate the culprit, who is no longer fit to live, why not allow the exe cutioner to enter the cell, and, in tho presence of a few witnesses, administer some form of instant and painless death ? Even the Spanish garotc is far less barbarous than the English gallows ?, and sitting in a chair no more " igno minious" than standing upon a scaffold. That infamous life-snuffer, the French guillotine, does its work in a cleaner and more mercifid manner than the rascally cord of the hangman. I We arc, therefore, decidedly in favor of abol ishing the gallows, even if tho ?'good of so ciety" requires tho infliction of capital punish ment.?Providence Mirror. He who despises useful employment tramples under foot a fundamental law of his Creator. "In tho sweat of thy brow shalt thou eat bread," was tho first rule of action prescribed for man, after the fall?meaning that each member of the human family should perform an amount of use ful labor, equal to that required to produce tho means of his own subsistence. To secure obedi ence to this law, we are so constituted, physic ally and mentally, that a violation of it produces an amount of punishment more than commen surate with tho pleasure that can bo derived from stubborn disobedience.?//. L. Jlarvey. Divuns Definitions.?When a man thinks he has been insulted, and challenges tho ac cused, and, besides the insult, gets a bullet through his nerves, arteries, or u rains, this is the kind of action called Satisfaction. When a man's pocket-book is not in a pletho ric condition at best, and he is compelled, by an inexorable dun, to hand over the little that remains, that is the kind of action called Sub traction. When a tea-sipping, gossipping gathering, each in turn, letB off tho pent-up steam of scoff, sneer, and scandal that has been hissing after delivery for weeks or months, that is the kind of action called Detraction. When a man smiths another, in the folly and madness of his sudden wrath, and gets in return a blow, or missile, that loosens a tooth, or blackens an eye, and sends him wounded, ashamed, and conscience-smitten to his home, that is what we call Reaction. In an omnibus tho other day, a little girl, not more than seven years of age, asked an old gen tleman "if ho would be her father ?" A look of surprise was the reply.
