It contains the iCvOunt ot rather a strnnge rencounter of foar inriividaal*. why made themselves prominent in Fraare, during the middle and eud of the sixteenth century, and is as follows: Ooe etorniy evening as the rain fell in tor rente, an eld woman who lived in a miserable hut, in the forest of St Germain, and who paf?ed in the surrounding country for a Kind of witch, heard a loud knocking at her door She oi-cned it. a young man on horseback pre sented himself, tnd craved hospitality By the dull light of a lamp which she held in her hand, she perceived him to be a young nobleman lie appeared to bo quite young, and his dress denoted rank TLe old woman lighted a fire, and inquired of the stranger whether he was hungry and desired food. Ihe appetite of a youth at sixteen is like his heart at the same age, cravisg, and not difficult to please, and he immediately aecepted her of ter. A morsol of cheese and a loaf of blacV break t'rem the cupboard was all toe old dame could produce. "I have nothing more," said she to the young nobleman ; " this is all that your grind ing taxes leave a poor creature to offer a trav eler; the peasants, too, in this country call me a witch and sorceress, and make that cxcuse to their consciences for stealing from me the little that m^y poor old field produces " '? Mufoi. said the young man, "if ever / become King of France, I will suppress the taxes, and teach the people better " '? (iod grant it!" replied the old woman. At these words the gentleman drew to the table to commence his repast; but, at the same moment a fresh knock at the door ar rested him. The old woman opened it, and pereeivod another horseman, drenched with rain, who also begged for shelter. The same hospitali ty was instantly granted him. and cn the stranger s entrance she perceived that he teo was young, and judging from his appearance, of nob'e descent " ^ i-%t! is it you, Henry ?" cried one "lc?, Henry, ' replied the other: both were named Henry. The old woman discovered from their con versation, that they were of the number of a large hunting party, conducted by the King. Charles IX , which had been dispersed by the etorm. " Mother, ' said the second officer, ?' have you nothing batter to offer us."' 44 Nothing," replied she. " 'hen, said he, " we will go ahares." ihe fir^t Henry demurred, but glancing at tne resolute eye and strong frame of the sec ond Henry, said, in somewhat a chagrined " Agreed ; we will go share?." He dared not express bis secret motive, but he feared, if not sharing uoJ/y, his compan ion would appropriate the whole. They ac cordingly sat down on either sideof the table, and one had already begun to cut tho bread with hi3 dagger, when a third knock was heard at the door. The meeting was indeei singular. It was again a youth, a nobleman, and a Henry The old woman looked at them with amazement. The first comer wished to hide the bread and cheese, the second replaced them on the table, and laid his sword by the side. The third Henry smiled. 44 You do not wish then that I should share your rupper," said he. ? Well ? I can wait, I have a strong stomach." '? Tho supper," said the first Henry. <; be longs, by right, to the first comer." " No," said the second, 4> it belongs to him who can best defend it." The third Henry became red with anirer, and said haughtily : "Perhaps it belongs to hiui vho knows how to fight for it best " .These words were scarcely uttered, when the fir?t Henry drew his poignard, the two o.hcrs tneir swords. As thoy were just begin ning the frr.y, they were startled by a fourth knock at the cabin dx>r; a fourth young man, a fourth nobleman, a fourth Henry is intro duced. At tho sight of drawn swords ho pro uuces his own, and attaching himself to ihe weakest party, he joined in the combat The old woman, terrified, hid herself, and uie blades strike everything in tneir reach. The lamp fell down and was extinguished but they continued to fight in the darkness The noise of the swords lasted some time, then gradually bccame les*, and at length ceased altogether. Then the old woman ventured to issue forth from her hiding place, and relight ing the lamp sLo perceived tho four young men stretchcd on the ground, each having a slight wound. She examined them carefully, and found that fatigue, rather than loss of blood, had overcome them. Thoy rose from the ground one after the other, and, ashamed of what had transpired in the heat of passion, they began laughing and exclaimed: 4>Come, let us now sup together, without fighting rnoro." But when they camo to look for tbeif supper, they found it ou the ground, all trodden under foot and stained with blood. Meagre as it was, they regretted it. In addition to this, the cabin was destroyed, and the old witch, seat ed in her corner, fixed her pale red eyes on the four young men. 41 Why dost thou stare on us thus?" said the first Henry, who was troubled at her gaze. 441 am reading the fates on your foreheads," replied she. The second Henry commanded her sternly to disclose them ; the two othors laughingly acquiesced The old woman replied : " As you have all four met in this cabin, so shall you all meet in a like destiny. As you have trampled under foot and 6tained with blood the bread offered you by hospitality, so will you trample under foot and stain with blood power you might mutually share. As you have devastated and impoverished this cottage, so will you devastate and lay waste France. As you have all four been wounded in the darkness, so will you all four perish by treason and a violent death " The four young noblemen oould not refrain from laughing at the old woman's prediction. These four noblemen were the four heroes of the League, two as its leaders, and two as its enemies : Henry of Conde: poisoned by hit wife at St Jean d Anjjcly. Henry of (sunt: assassinated at Blois. bv the Forty five. Henry of Valota: assassinated by Jaques Clement, at St. Cloud Henry of Bourbon assassinated at Paris, by Ravaillac, Iron Cars ?Dr. La Mothe has lately pat ented an iron car, which is building at Pater eon, N J. It will bo of the ordinary shape and dimensions, being designed to seat sixty passengers, and resting on two four-wheeled trucks. The body of the car will consist of strong iron bands twelve or fifteen inches apart, running lengthwise and crosswise and secured by rivet* at their intersections. This will constitute the frame work, which will be covered by sheet iron on the flooring and iron panels with glass windows or the side There is to be no wood work whatever about the c?rs; but to counteract the radiation of beat, and obviate dangers from accident, the inside will be lined throughout with several layers of thiok pasteboard and heavy cushions.
