Her strange companion placed her in a chair, and stooping down before the half-extinguished ashes, raked iii<v?i together and fanned them with his bat. From time to . time he glanced at her over Iii- shoulder, as though to assure ; himself of her remaining quiet and making no effort to de j part; and that done, busied himself about the lire again. It was not without reason that he took those pains, for his dres3 was dank and drenched with wet, his jaws nitiied with criid, :n d he -hU.-re 1 from head to foot. It bad rained hard during the previous night and for some hours in the morning, ! tor. sine noon it had been tine. Wheresoever he had passed the hours of darkness, his condition siifBcicntly Tsetokcned that many of them had been spent beneath the open sky. Besmeared with mire : his saturated clothes clinging with a damp embrace about his limbs: i:is beard unshaven, his face u.v.va-hed. his meagre cheeks worn into deep hollows.?a more miserable wretch could hardly be. than this man who now cowered (town upon the widow's hearth, and watched the struggling flame with bloodshot eyes. She had covered her face with her hands, fearing, as it seemed, to look towards him. So they remained for some short time in silence. Glancing round asain. be asked at length t j '? Is this your house ?" ?? It i-. Why. ir> the name of Heaven, do you darken it'" " Give me meat and drink." he answered sullenly, " or I liare do more than that. The very marrow in my bones is cold, w:th wet and bunjer. I must have warmth and food, and I will have them here." ?? You were t!.<- robber in the Chi.:", el! road." - I was." l; And nearly a murderer then." ?? The will was not wanting. There was one came upon me and raised the hue-and-ccy, that it would have gone h.ir.l with but for his nimblcnes*. I made a thrust nr him." " Von thrust your .word at him .'" cried the widow. " Oh God, you ie-ar 111 i ~ man! you hear and saw!" He looked at her. as. with her head thrown hack, and her hands tijht clenched together, she uttered these words in an agony of appeal. Then, start* ng to his feet as she had dune, he advanced towards her. "Bewnre!" she cried in a suppressed voice, whose firm? ness -topped him midway. " Do not so much u> touch nie with a finger, or you are lost ; body and soul, you are lost." ?? i!c;r me," he replied, menacing her with his hand. " I, that in the form of n man live the life of a hunted boast; that in the body am u spirit, a ghost upon the earth, a thing from which all creatures shrink, save those curst beings of another v. .-Id. who will not leave me;?I am, in my despe? ration of this ni;!it. past all fear but that of the hell in which I exist from day to day. Give the alarm, cry out, refuse to skelter Kit?. I will net hurt you. But I will not be taken alive; and si* surely as ?ou threaten me above your breath, I fall a dead man on this floor. The blood with which 1 sprinkle it, be on yon and yours, in die name of the Evil Spirit that tempts men to tle-ir ruin !" As ho spoke, lie took a pistol from his breast, and firmly clutched it in his hand. " Remove this man from me. good Heaven !" cried the widow. '? lu thy rrruce and mercy, give him one minute*, penitence, and strike him dead !" ?? It in- im such purpose," he said, confronting tier. ?? It ?s deaf. Give me i<> oat and drink. lest I do that, it cannot help my doing, and w ill not do for you." ?' Will von leave me. it' I do thus much ? Will you leave me and return no more!" ?? I will promise nothing," he rejoined, seating himself at the table, " n.it!iin_' but this?I will execute my threat if you betray tno." She rose a; length, and going to a closet or pantry in the room, brought out some fragments of cold meat und bread and put them on the table. He asked for brandy, and for water. These she produced likewise; and he ate and drank > with, the voracity "f a famished hound. All the time he was so enrpijT,.,! she kept at the uttermost distance of the cham? ber, and >nt there shuddering, hut with her face towards him. She never turned her back upon him once; und al-j though when -he passed him (as she was obliged to do in suiter to au 1 from the cupboard) she gathered the skirts of i her garment about her, a* it" even its touching his by chance were horrible to think of, still, in tin* midst ef all this dread and terror, she kept her face directed to his own. and watched his every movement. His repast ended?if that can be called one, which was a mere ravenous .satisfying <>f the calls of hunger?he moved his chair toward- the fire again, and warming himself before the blaze which had now sprung brightly up, accosted her once more. ?? I am an outcast, to whom a roof above Iiis head is of? ten an uncommon luxury, nnd the food a beggar would reject is delicate fare. You live here at your ease. Do you live alone ?" " 1 do not," she made answer with an etTort. ??Who dwells here besides?" ?? One?it is no matter who. You had best he gone, or he maV ;ou hero, Why do you linger ?"' ??

When be had concluded these arrange? ments, he took a turn or two across the room, with an elabo? rate assumption of having nothing on his mind (but with one eye hard upon his treasure ail the time.) and then, and not till then, began to drag it out, piece by piece, and eat it with the utmost relish. Barnabv. for his part, bavin? pressed bis mother to eat, in vain, made a hearty supper too. Once draring the progress of his meal, he wanted more bread from the closet and ro-o to get it.

A long in:d profound silence ensued, broken only by some change of position on the part of Baraaby, whose eyes were still widcopen and intently fixed upon the tire; or by an ef? fort of recollection on the part of Grip, who would cry in a low voice from time to time. " Polly put the bet?" and there stop shot:, forgetting the remainder, and go off in a doze again. After a long interval, Barnaby's breathing grew more deep anil regular, and his eyes more closed. But even then the unquiet spirit of the raven interposed. " l'olly put the kct?" cried Grip, and his master was brand nvvake again. At length he slept soundly, and the bird with his bill sunk upon his breast, his breast itself puffed out into a comforta? ble alderman-like form, and his bright eve growing smaller and .-mailer, really seemed to be subsiding into a state of re? pose. Now and then he muttered in a sepulchral voice, ?? Polly put the ket?" but very drowsily, and more like a diunken man than a reflecting raven. The widow, scarcely venturing to breathe, rose from her sear The man glided front the closet, and extinguished the candle. " ?tie on." cried Grip, suddenly struck with an idea and very much excited.

They stood rooted to the ground, as though it had been a voice from the grave. But even this tailed to awaken the sleeper. He turned over toward the Sre, his ana fell to the ground, and his head drooped heavily upon it. The widow und her unwelcome .-isiter gazed at I m and at each other for a moment, and then she motioned him Loward the door. ?'Stay," he whispered. " You teach your son well." " I liave taught him nothing that you beard to-night. De? part instantly, or i will rouse him." '? Vou are free to do so. Shall / rouse himT" " You dare not do that." " 1 dare do any thing.

" Woman," tie returned between his teeth, as he motioned her aside, " I would see htm nearer, and I will. If you wont one of us to kill the other, wake him." With that he advanced, and bending down over the pros? trate form, softly "irnod hack the head and looked into the face. The light of the fire was upon it, and its every linea? ment was revealed distinctly, lie contemplated it for a brief space, arid hastily uprose. "Observe,'' he whispered in the widow's oar: " In him, of whose existence I was ignorant until to-night. I have you in my power. B ? careful how you use me. I am destitute und starving, ar.d a wanderer upon the eaitb. I may tiske a sunt and slow revenge." " There is some dreadful meaning in your words. I do not fiithnm it.'; ? '?

He pointed, as he left her, t? the slumbering form, and stealthily withdrawing, made his way into the street. She fell on her knees beside the sleeper, and remained like one stricken into stone, until the tears which fear had frozen so long, came tenderly to her relief.
