[Concluded.] Presently a loud shout from the whole party announced his safe arrival on the opposite bank, and restored a degree of color to the cheek of Annie Bell, who had not dared to look till now. It was the wish of the party that he should not attempt to return, and this they advised him of by shouts and gestures; but the struggling waters drowned their voices, and he did not ob serve, or, if he did, would not heed, the signs. Already he had commenced his return ; slowly und cautiously, and steadily, he advanced; and this time the water only came to bis ankle, save once, when his horse stepped into a hole, and immersed the rider to the knee. In a moment more he had grasped the bands of his friends, and heard his loved Annie exclaim, " Thank God!" as bo resumed his place at lier side. Now he explained to them how, the first time, he had mistaken the right path across, and struck it again accidentally; and insisted upon remaining the very last one, in order to direct the crossing of the rest. First Ilarry Leo went over with very little difficulty. Effio Bradley followed, with dread ful apprehensions, but, nevertheless, arrived safely, to Harry's great relief. All the com pany on horseback had gone over, and the exact course became so apparent that those last to go felt surprising assurance of their safety. Even Old John had crossed over, chuckling, and beating the donkeys to his heart's content, ex claiming, "Now, yer long-eared brutes, yer! now I've got you! You dare'sent kick up here, an' you knows it!" The buggies next passed, amid a variety of " screechesand, at length, Edwin Berry alone remained, who commenced to button hia coat and settle himself firmly in bis saddle. Anxiously the party observed him start to cross, and every one thought, with a vague presentiment, of the prediction of the Witch of Golding Gorge. Gaily he rode; and, when about half-way, he kissed his hand smil ingly to Annie Bell, who gazed 011 him with breathless interest. All the party turned to rally Annie upon her gallant knight, when such a shriek of the wildest anguish arose as appalled every ear, and Annie fell senseless to the earth. No one thought of her for the moment, for they knew too well what t^at despairing cry im ported. They turned instantaneously, and it was too true ; \jis horse had stumbled, thrown his rider, and the unhappy man was struggling in the wildest rapids below, whither he had been swept in a moment. 'Twas useless to attempt to save him. Only once he reappeared, with his arms stretched out vainly for succor, and then sunk suddenly and entirely from view. A groan escaped from many a manly breast, and tears streamed from bright eyes, when this appalling result was seen. I'oor Annie! poor Annie Bell! when they raised her from the sod she was still insensible; and more like a funeral procession it seemed tnau the return of a pleasure party, when Moorfield was reached at ten o'clock that night, and Annie wa? confided to the care of her grief stricken mother, and the skill of the village surgeon. When the disastrous news was im parted, there were tears and lamentations all that night in Moorfield Hamlet. As for Eddy?gallant Eddy ! noble Eddy!? two days after the fatal occurrence bis body "w as found in a neighboring pool of the South Poto mac, standing erect, with, both arms extended, at if in supplication." He lies in the village church ! yard, and on the side next his heart rests all 1 that remains of pretty Annie Bell. She died 1 of consumption, twelve months, to a day, from the date of the prediction of the Witch of Gold , ing Gorge. Her illness was induced by violent I grief, and a morbul fear of the fulfilment of the prophecy. . ' Since then, no peasant ever glances towards ! the hut that still holds together at the foot of 1 the rocky ledge, without a silent prayer to bo shielded from The Witch or Golihnq Gohcik !
