I never recollect a warmer en

ast tlian Professor Leyden.
When
he spoke, he seemed to ; forget Jill oth
er worldly circumstances, all
other
subjects, save the one engrpssing
tonic, on' which, he was engaged.
His evei wildljr dilated, saw.no bbject
save the bright imagery creatdd by
his fertile brain. His voice was im
passioned. His every pulser beat
high. The professor, at the t me.. I
speak of. was just two-and-thirt y, and
ranked himself the very leadbr of
Giill and Surzheim's energeti'! dis
ciples. On the subject of phr molo-

around which about a .dozen young
men, with the worthy baron', add the
professor, sat. i It appeared that, in
the height of m enthusiasm, Ley
den had, to plcaso the company, ex
amined their heads, and with; tnany
wild looks pressed the bumps,! which
-he declared to be the unerring indi
cations of the ! human characte: " and
passions. Some unfortunate ivight
in company, however, had evidently
shocked the examiner by a de mon
stration of wicked propensities, for
he strenuously refused, on this occa
sion to pronounce upon the s veral
orjran's, declaring he "might gn e bf

The conversation had now; taken a

weeks before, lhe companion pi

the supposed partner of her guilt had
re-appeared, and declared that lie nan
with difficulty escaped from the hands
of banditti, who had, without any
apparent motive, seized and ltinpns-

o'nod him. To prove this, he snowea
several severe wounds which he had
lk-eivcd in .the successful struggle
lie had, with two iof the gang ita. his
dndeavor to liberate . himself, f This
itorv. however, appeared so irhprob-
ible, that no belief was attached to
it, and the young man was nurriea io
prison, there to abide his trial, j This
story had been repeated with ; sinful
minuteness by Carl Hofienon, i hand

that he ranked so; higil in ino; goou

that he bad proposed and was actu

with the full - sanction of her tather.
As a narrator, few; could excvV him.

the nerves of even the njost a pathet

bespoke how truly he bad interested

the Prince of Olsebach, a young Rus
sian, as he took a pinch of Isnutf, and
handed to his neighbor his splendid
box, which dazzled the eye by the
richness of the diamonds encircling
it. Jf snch a wretch existed on my
estates, I'd have liim racked.1 'And
well would he deserve it; a cold-hearted,
cruel assassin,' chimed in anoth
er. . 'May he be punished in the
world to conie!' fervently ejaculated
Carl. 'Nay, nay,' said the old Bar
on, 'that is saying too much." It is
true the man deserves an earthly pun
ishment; biutyou are allowing your
anger against a vice, my dear boy, to
carry you ioo far.' And the old no
ble good naturedly pattedCarl on the
arm. : '
Thus various subjects wero dis
cussed and argued; i but' during the
whole evening Leyderi spoke not a
word. Atjlast the hour for breaking
up ! arrived; and according to eti
quette the' prmce moved first; Ere
he did sof he requested the return of.
his snuff-box.. The person to whom
he had handed it declared thit he had
passed it to the next, who, in his turn
denied all knowledge of it, afe did the
rest1 of the company. Every one
had seen it, every one had hindled it,
but none could how produce it. The
room was searched, the servants had
not entered 'the apartment, the door
had never been unclosed, none had
stirred from the table. The affair
began to wear a serious aspect.
The old baron felt his honor wounded,
but! still hoped it might prove to be
an ill-timed pleasantryJ Under this
impression he . rose. 'Gentlemen,
some person amongst you has doubt
less concealed the box, intending
thereby to give our illustrious friend
a fnght, and .in good faith he de
serves it for thus carelessly forgetting
to look after a trinket said to be
worth 50,000 florins; but as he seems

mann saw with increased
uneasiness
that he must now take up
the matter
more seriously. 'My fr ends, yoti

to sav we must all submit to. Me

grave voice;-let it be well secured.'
This was done. 'Now, gentlemen,
you must either acknowledge the cor-
rectness ol the measure auopr, or
I, the disciple of a juggling science,
perish!' and he drew from his pocket
a small pistol.- 'Nay, start not, my

le63 consternation. The baron start

to speak in no gentle terms to the
.man who thus had insulted his fu

Leyden quietly added 'search' hik'
The baron, in his eagerness to defend
his profffjc, at once flew to do so.
Immediately! the sriuiY box fell on
the tabje. The worthy old m;m sank
overcome in a chair.! In the breast

the box, which the cjther had unre
sistingly allowed him to draw forth.
Tora few moments there was a dreadful
death-like pause. The partv seemed
petrified, while the trembling Carl
seemed to struggle. with his feelings.
At length, as if .suddenly awaking,
he started up1, and incoherently pro
nounced, The hand of God is upon

that the return of Mr. Webster
