After a few hours' rest in the cottage, Rudolph rose, and seating himself by Dame Margaret, who was industriously plying her spinning-wheel, soon ingratiated him self so completely in her favor, that she be gan to tell him an interminable, story of which she was the heroine some forty years buck. She always afterwards declared Ru dolph not only the handsomest and bravest youth in Zurich, but the most sensible and best mannered. " ' ' ' Owing to the plague, the communication between Zurich and the neighboring ham lets was slight, though not entirely sus pended ; and the old woman knew nothing of the approaching aoto da n, or the deep interest Rudolph took in One of the vic tims. Anne undertook to prepare her for the arrival of another guest in the person of Zillah, who Would remain but a few hours under her roof, if Hans returned suc cessful in his search after the fisherman and his son.; '! ' w- :' '; . As evening advanced, Rudolph seated himself at the window looking ont upon the lake in the direction of Wedenschweil, agitated by a thousand fears of failure. At length a beat, with its one sail set, steered directly for the anchbroge below the cottage, and soon afterwards Hans, with Michael and his son, entered tbe cottage, the latter exchanging greetings with Rudolph, and putting themselves and boat at his com mand. Hans remained a few moments longer in earnest conversation with Ru dolph, who gave him every direction he could conceive necessary in case aught un toward should, happen to derange, in any measure, their first, plan of , action. He then departedafor the place of rendezvous, theie to await his comrades and the com ing morning.

As he thought of his own helplessness to aid her, he groaned and covered his faco with his 'hands,' to press back thd drops wrung from his heart', Ind ready to overflow his eyes Then, turning to his sister, who was sitting by him, he sought relief by unfulding to her. his .plans in the event of success. , They remained; in earnest conversation until the lateness of the hour warned Anne that it was time to retire, and obtain need ful rest before the, agitating events of the morrow.

They soon reached it; and, upon opening the curtains ol the litter, tho poor jgi rl was found composed, but helpless as an infant. The conflict of mind she had gone through, her unexpected deliverance when all hope seemed past, had reduced her, by the re action, to a state of infantile weakness. Hans took her in his arms and bore her in to the cottage.; At, 'the door of Anne's apartment he was met by Rudolph, who, taking the fair girl from him, tottered with her to the couch, upon which lie seated himself, still holding her, to his heart, as if afraid his recovered treasure might yet escape him. ' 1 ' ' "Earlach !" was all the faint voice' of Zillah uttered ss she clung to him, hiding her 'face upon ' his bosom; and then she wept as though life itself were pouring out with her tears. Rudolph placed her gently upon thecouch, and, by his caresses and soothing words, restored her to some degrco of calmness ; and Anne, touched by their love and grief, stood by in silent sympathy. i ..A summons from Hans. drew JVnne from the chamber; and, when she returned,, it was to find Zillah sleeping, her hand clasp ed in Rudolph's, who, sitting by her side, watched as only those can whose ''love, nor age can chill, nor rival steel, nor false hood disavow." ' UI grieve to.disturb you, brother," said said Anne, softly; "but Hans thinks it dangerous to remain in thiB neighborhood, and tha old fisherman urges you to send Zillah over the lake at once. The wind is fair, and they await her in the boat. Mi chael says, too, he will receive her into his own family at Wedenschweil, which, be ing an independent lordship, is not likely to be molested by the authorities of Zurich, should they search for Zillah. While there, you can devise other plans for her future welfare. Hans tells me, too," said she, lowering her voice Btill more, "that her father, though liberated by the. prior upon the payment of his ransom, grew desperate at being unuble to procure the release of Zillnh, and, refusing to conceal himself, was killed by a band of rioters in the market-place."

'I must not go Wilh her,' said Rudolph to himself, as if combatting a strong de sire to do what he knew he ought not to do ; 'out i must speak with Hans.', And, softly disengaging his' hand from that of the sleeper, he quilled the room. As lie did so, Zillah opened her eyes, and seeing Anne looking thoughtfully nnd compassionately at her, a slight blush suffused. her pale cheeks, i, ;.-. -i . .'I feary lady,' she said, 'you think me over free ; but, alas ! misery has well nigh changed my being ',' She clasped her hands despairingly.

Rudolph and Anne -remained at the cottage in preference to reluming to the town, arid it was not very long before they received a summons from their father to join him at Winterthur, whither they determined to proceed at once, giving Hans a commission to find out the Abbess of Seekingen, and to procure' an asylum with her for Zillah. '1 The voyage to. Winterthur was soon accomplished,' and old Earlach greeted his Children kindly looking anxiously al the emaciated figure of his son, when he he could do so unobserved. Nor was it long before, taking . A nne aside, he ques tioned her closely as to his malady, and the, best cure for it. Anne suggested that as the plague was devastating their unfor tunate country, if her father would sepd Rudolph to foreign lands, he would, in a year or two, be himself again. ' !' Old Earlach bent his brows, and at last signified his approval' of the measure. Rudolph '! Was 'duly 'apprised, and com manded (o make his preparations for a speedy departure. An"1- wrote a few lines to her aunt, the abbess, and charged Rudolph to deliver them, well knowing he would soon seek her. , : Hans had not yet returned, nnd Ru dolph, all impatience to know the success of his mission, charged Anne to send him to -Wedenschweil,' whither he determined to go at once, find to remain until hisfos- .... , m , . ter brothef arrived. Tins ;first ' step in hi travels, however, was not. made known to his falher, who was too much occupi ed . with state affairs to make minute in quiries as to his route at setting forth. He contented himself with giving Ru dolph letters of credit to some old friends nnd comrades in France and Germany. He also supplied him with whaC in onr days,' would be deemed a very moderate allowance for travelling expenses, though quite"1 enough" for Switierland "and the simple habits of its people.

And now, gentle reader, I might tell you of strange things that befell our voting Swiss in Germany, but wjil not detain you ; -so, dropping some twelve months, I will just say Rudolph returned to his native city, and obtained his fa It er's consent lo marry a foreign lady, who had been for some months under the charge of his aunt, the abbess, who prais ed her devotion and loveliness.

The Bgautifcl Sleeper. -A young and frail Scotch girl, scarcely more than a child, and beautiful as any of Walter Scott's heroines, has lately attracted atten tion in Paris by sleeping wherever she goes. ' Her name is Erina Walton, and her mother has brought her to Paris to try by travel to cure her of her singular malady. At the opera she no sooner lakes a scat in a box than she falls asleep, and thus remains until she is awakened and it is whilst in this position that she has gained the title of "ia Belle Dor mouse." While she sleeps, she is said to enjoy dreams so lovely and so attrac tive, that the awakening into the common place surroundings of this world displeas es her and she hastens back again into dream land. , At home, in a carriage, at the theatre, whenever she is left alone for a moment,' she settles into a calm and sweet sleep ; and wilh such a lovely and child like face 'and dreams 6uch as she en joys, one can readily imagine mat her face in sleep is the centre of attraction for all eyes', and that she well merits the ti tle of the 'Beautiful sleeper. The symp toms of the case betray one of the curious forms of hysteria, and no doubt after time has cured her of the abnormal con dition in which she now finds herself, she will look , bock with as much fear as she now does delight. Aside from the diseased condition of the child's nervous system, it would be Curious to know how much there is of materiality' and lmw much of immaterial ity in ihis Swedenbnrgian-like communi cation with the land of dieams. -iV.
