Fame is truly moro dependcnt on forlu nate circumstnnccs than grcat achicvc monts. Had Robert Wilson livcd in the days of chivalry, his courngo and constancy would have been tho theme of pocts and song of ministrels; now, tho only rccord of his name, or even ofhis cxistence, will be this unpretending story. The adventurcrs entcred the deep forest, and, guided by the trnces of the relrcating Indians, pressed fonvard, at first, with all the specd they could urjre. But Mcndowct soon chcckcd his rapid pacc, and rcprcscn- iea to uoDert tnat thc two Mohavrks were perhaps scouls from a large party ; and that 1 caution must bc used, or they might una. I wares be caught in an ambush. Robert's j paticncc would never have submitfcd lo this i curb could ho by any mcans have avoided j it ; but as ho could not quicken the pace of Mendowet, he was obligcd to confonn I toit. j Cnutiously, therefore, they iourneyed on through the old woods, where a civilizcd being had nevrr beforc voluntanly vcntur ed. All was silencc, save when. at long intcrvals, tho cry ofsomc solitary birdbroke upon tho car vith startlingshrillncss; or. perhaps. a rustling among the dry branch cs made the wandcrers pauso in brealhless silencc, till a dccr, bounding across thcir i path would plungo into the opposite thick i ct ; white they did not darc to send a bullct i nfter himdest the rnpott of their guns should I alarm the cncmy, ho might cven Ihen be I ltirking closo bcside Ihcm. There was. during tlie pursiiit, a fcarful ! apprchension, an undcfir.ablc Iiorror on the hcart and nnnd of Kobert, far morc ternble than tho grief he would havo ftdt had he , known that Mary was no more. The lor- tures she might be forccd to undergo, haun-; ted his imagination till cvcrv sound scemcd ! to warn him to hastcn to hcr relief ; and the dclaysand nbstructions which were con I stantly occurring, made his blood bnil wilh I a fury hc could scarcely control. His im I paticncc greally surprised Mendowet, who, j with all the philosuphic cnlmncss ofa sage, would lake his own timo to cxamine the ! traccs of iheir fleeing focs. calculale Ihe dislance they had gaincd, and the probable time when they should overlake thcm. This would havo been soon accomplished had tho Mchawks proceeded strnight for. ward. But, as if anticipating pursuit, thcse Indtnns wero conlinttally practictng to e Ittde it. They would olten trace back their own foots'.eps, like Iho doublings of a fox ; i so move(j at (h.c idca of approachin'g.Agioc and when l'ollowing Ihe courso of a rivcr, j ochook. travol in tho watcr, and cross and rc-cross Mcndowet.nflcr hcaving n drcp sigh, thuj in placcs which nosktllsavo the sagacily rcpHed :These mountains bclong to the of Ihe red man could have d.scovercd.

J fhe weathcr which cvcr since they had , leu uovcr. ano, maeoa. lor some timo ue- foro, had bccn exlremely dry, and hot, now suddenly changed ; and they scemcd trans-, ported to anothcr region. Thick, black masses of clouds envelopcd thc moun tains, and soon covercd the wholc horizon, and the darkncss of night came down at oncc. Then the wind suddcnly rosc and at inlervals swept onward with thc force of n tornado. It rcquircd no effbrt of the im agination to fancy that the old woods wcrc trcmbling wilh the apprehensions ofsomc (crrible calamity. The trunks of the lar gcst trees were quivered, and their lofty heads were bent almost to the ground as (hc 'mounlain went sounding by.' from a cavern far more awful than tlie ' Ronces- j o,... ' We must rcturn,' said Mendowet, pau- j sing.

They wero now safe from tho peltings of the slorm, but notTrom its uproar. Itsccm cd as if the elcments of air, firc, and water, were allowed to wrcak their fury on the shrinking and quaking carth. The light ning that blazcd in one continucd glare ; thc rolling of the thunder, that shook to their foundation, ihese cverlasting hills ; the rain, that did not fall in drops, but poured in large streams from the black clouds ; the howling of the wind as it raved from tho narrow pas.-ses, or filled the hollow chasms : the frequent and loud clash of branchcs and trces all united to give to the sublimity, which the aroused soul could fccl, but no language can ever communicatc or des. cribe, Amid this wreck of matler, and what scemcd a3 it were, Ihe crush of worlds, Rob. ert hceded not his own danger; ho only thought of his young and tender bridc. At every fresh burst of the tcmpest, ' Oh, where is Mnry now Y came over his hcart till bis knccs smote together, and large drops of sweat started on his palo forehcad. Then he would rush to the narrow entrance with clenchcd hands and look abroad to seo if there was an abatement of the storm ; and tricn in aespair, ne would scek tho furthest gloom of tho cavcrn. throw himself down cavcrn. throw himself down .u j i. -i . . . . uii ino uainjj rucK, ciose uis eyes anu strug glo to banish all thoughts from his mind. Thus passed tho hour till after midnight, when, during a pauso in the wind, a strange sound was heard. It was not likc a shriek or a cry from any human voice, or tho yell or tnnan from a wild bcast ; it was a deep, dismal sound, an unearthly tone, thrilling the lislener liko the warning call from some perlurbed spirit. Robert started on his fcct. A bright flash of lightning showed him Mendowet rising from his inctimbcnt posturc ; his hands were talling powerless by his sidc, and his faco exprcssca an internnl agitation and tcrror which a rcd man rarcly exhibils. 'Itislho voico of the Abamocho.' said the Indian, in a tone that cvidcntly Irems bled. ' I havo heard it onco before. He calls for a victim.' ' U'ho is he V dcmandcd Robert, drawing his sword. ' Hc is Ihe spirit of Iho dark land !' said Mendowet, shrinking down as iftohide himself from some drendful objcct. ' Hc rulcs ovcr thesc mountains ; ho comcs in Iho storm and none whom he marks for do tstruclion can cscape him.' Robert's wholc soul had been so engross cd with tho idea of Mary. and how to rcscuc her, that scarco a thought or care for nny other human being had entcred his mind sinco ho had left Dover. The appalling noise he had iust heard, and Mendowet's singular mannnr, now aroused his curiosity and he nnniired of Mnnrfnwpt whv wn ,h0 hmhest peak oftho mounlain. Ho beck- j oned to thc Mohawks to pass by, laying his j hand on his breast. They oboyed, and j went through thc pass in safetv. But when i ooKencnoscs wouiu liavc lollowcd, thc cvil spirit tnrcw nis at spirit thrcw his arms abroad. atid great stnn03 and (rccs werc hur,ej , on lho-var. rlor?f all penst,ed except ii10 chief; . This was manyi manv moong boforc ,hc wh;lc man cam0 ; but none of our warriors dared vcnturc to Agiocochook to bring way thc boncs of the slain. At last my falher was sachcm of Iho Massachuiclls Hc was a creat chief. His tribe were more ,lUmerous "than Ihe Icavcs of the summer rbrCst. A thousand warriors followed his steps ; he said, he would bring back the boncs ot ms lalncrs. Ile callcd his young mcn ; ho took me that I might lcarn thc palhs of the woods. I was a child thcn ; I could not bcnd a warrior's bow but they went not to fight.' Mcndowct pauscd ; and Robert kncw by the low toncs of his voicc, as thc scntcncc dicd away, that rccollcctions ofothcr 3-cars passed sadly on his mind.

I was chief of a mighty na tion now Mcndowct dwclls alone. I am the last of my tribe.' As ho ended hc sunk down and covercd his faco with his hands. Robert's lifb had bccn a laborious, but a very happy one. Hc was naturally ofa cheerful tcmperament. and had scldom. c ven in imagination.dwelton thd dark shadcs of human life. Ho had felt as youth and hcalth are pronc to feel, as if carlh was made purposely for the happincssof man, and cxistence would never have an cnd. A few hours had taught him solcmn Icssons of the vanily and chango of all crcated lhing8. Without and around him was tho desfroying tempcst, dashing to atoms tho works of naturc; wilhin was Mcndowet.an imago of moral desolation. Robert sat down ; and whilo the picluro of human vicissitudes was prcsentcd thus vividly mournful to his mind, mingled with tho thought ofhis own heartsickento? dis. appointmcnt, bc wept likc an infant. The tcars he shed wcro not mcrely those of sel fish regrtrt. Ile wept for the miseries to which'man is exposed, till his mind was in sensibly drawn to pondcr on the bins that must have made such miseries a ncccssary punishmcnt. And never had he breathed ! so contntc a prayer as now came from his soul, liumblcd belore that Alinighty powcr who only can say to the mourner ' peacc ! lo the tempcst, be still !' A swcet calm at Icnglh fcll on Robert's tossed mind ; the calm of childIike confi dencc in the goodncss of God. Hc fclt that all would finally bo found to have bccn or , dained in incrcy, that all his trials were for i the bestand be sunk into n profound slecp ( from which hc did not awako until aroused ( by Mendowet. h was lolo in the morning the storm had j ceased ; and they sallied fonh to ihn n cxammc thft nnnpnrnnrn withnnt An eihalation, , ::: rr- liku smoke arosc from the drippinf? woods and wet grounds bencath and around ihem, concealing most of the dcvaslalions the storm had wrought. The clouds wero moving slowly up the sides of the mountain. still cn tirely throuding its tall pcaks ; but they did not wear tho lhrentninfr hnt. nf t hn nrpfrlfnfr j cvcning. Thoy had discharged their con". tents, atid their lighled folds wero gradually melting and ready lo dispcrse before thu ri ' sinsr sun, though his beanu had not pcnctrav ' ted their dark masses. I Tlie wind was enlirely hushcd, and not a sound, ezcept Ihe solemn, monolonous roar ol a distant watcrfall, broke on the stillncss. White Robert was conlrasting ihe almost i brealhless trannuilitv ha vnw faznd tinnn i ... .. . i - o- - I I wiih tho wild uproar'of ihe preceding nighl, Mendowet touched his shoulder; looking around, he belicld the fuaturcs of the Indian distott, white hcgazcd and poititcd upwards towatds a hugo mounlain that roscat some distance before Ihem. Abore ils tall peak rcposcd a black cloud which had so tcrriflcd Mendowet. Il is the Ambamocho,' said he in n sup prcssed tone. And certainly by tho aid of a liltlc imaginalion, it may be likcncd lo a human fcrm ofgiganlic proportions. The datk faco drawn against a cloud of liphtcr hue, was scen in the profile ; and a projec lionofa cloud f'om ihe body, that might pass for an nrm, stretchcd forward a vast dislance, and llian a shapclcss mass of va por, Ihat an Indian might call a rob?. fell down and covcrea Ihe surrounding prtci pice. 'Your cvil genius,' said Roberl, half lauphing, as ho plauccd aliernately at his cuidc and ihe cloud, 'has to my ihinking, n most monMrous and evil looking nosc-.' Ilugh !' said iicndowel, inlerrupting him. Tnat part of the cloud which formed the arm of thu spirit was beginmng to move towards tho body, and it incorpo.ated with it iu such a manncr that the Indian might wcll bc pnrdoncd for ihinking Abamocho had foldcd his arm on his brcasl. Mcndowct had held his brcath suspcndcd during Ihe movement of thc mis'erines cloud and his deep voico as he errphalically said ' Abamocho is pleased ; we may now go in safety,' sounded likc ihe brcathing of a drowning man, when he riscs to thc sur face of the wtter. After haslily rcfreshing themselvcs they deccnded from their rttreat and began their progrcss through the de file. Tho storm had oblitcrated all tracci ol the Mohawks, but thero wern nodiverging patbs ; those who once entcred the pass must proceed onward. It was now ihat Robert bccame fully sensiblc of the devas lationn of tho slorm. Their way was ob structed with fallen trces,fragments ol rocks, deep gullics and roaring walcrfa'Is pouring from the sides of tho mountain, and swclling the Saco till its slream ncarly floodcd the whole vallcy. They proceeded silently and cauliunsly for more than an hour when Mcndowct sud denly paused. and whisperinglo Robert, ' I scent the smoke of n fire,' sunk on his hands and knccs, crcpt forward sofily as a cat cir cumnavigating its prey. A few rods dis tant lay a huge tree, uprooted by iho lalo storm, shcltcred bclund thts Mendowet half rose, nad through thc instersticcs o! the roots carcfully cxnmincd thc daik prospcct beforc them. He soon sigr.ed for Robert lo alvancc, who imilating tho posturc ofhis guide, in stantly crcpt forward, and at a little distance before ihem behcld Mnry.

His heart and brain scemcd on fire, and his cycs fiashpd around to dlscover if any advanlago might be taken ero ho rushed on tho foe. At Ihat moment iho Mohawks. utlericg a horrible yell, sprang upon their feet and rantuwaros the Saco.

One glancc told Robert that Mary must perish ihai he could not savc her. But I will die with her !' ho exclaimed ; ar.d shaking ofTthe grasp-of Mendowet as though it had been n feaiher, he rushed to wardi her, shouling Mary ! Mary ! in a tone of agony. She uncovered her hcad. made an cllort to rise and articutated, Robert, dear Robert ! as he caught hcr in his arms and claspcd hcr lo his bosom as a mollier would hcr babe. ' Oh Mary ! must wo die ? must we die now V were his agonizing cxprCssions. ' We must, wo must,' the cried as shc gazed. for the first time upward on the rolling mountains. Why did you come?' Ho rcplicd not, but leaning against ihe rock, pressed her closer lo his heart, as Ihough he would screcn her from thc devour. ing stotm ; white she, clinging around his ncck, burst into a passion of tears, and lay ing hcr hcad on his bosom, sobbcd hko an infant. He bowcd his face upon hcr cold wet chcck, and breathed one cry for mcrcy ; yet, even Ihen there wai in tho hcarls of boih lovers. a feeling ofhappincss ay, joy in the thought that they should not bc scpa ratcd, that they might dio together. The mass came down, tearing and crum bling, swceping all before it. The whole mountain trembltd and iho ground shook as though there was an canhquake passing. Tho sun was darkcncd by the storm of wa ter, stones and branchcs of trces. which crushed and shivercd to atoms, filling ihe almosphcre, whilo tha blast swept by like a whirlwind, and ihe crush and roar of con vulsion wtro far more appalling than Ihe loudest thunder. It might havc been one minuto or twenty for neithcr of the lovers took noteofiime when in ihe hush of death.liko stillncss which succceded ihe uproar Roberl looked around and saw that the consuming storm naa passed away. It had passed, covering tho valley far as Iho cyo could rcach, wilh rum. Masics of granite and shivercd trees and mountains of carlh hcaped higli around, tiliea thc bed ct the aaco, and exhibitcd an , awful picture of thc dcsolating track of tho avalanchc. Only one lilile spot had escaped ihe gen. ral wreck, and there safe as though shcltcr ed in the hollow of His hand who notices thc fall of a sprrow, nnd lockcd in each othors arms, were Robert and Mary !
