It was a despe rate walk; but as we started by daybreak, and had great faith in our pedestrian qual ities, we expected to reach the nearest of the Eckford lakes by nightfall. The for est through which we traveled was of the densest description. Overhead the branches of spruce and pine shut out the day, while beneath our feet lay a frightful soil, composed principally of jagged shingle, cunningly concealed by an almost impenetrable brush. As the day wore on, our hope of reaching our destination grew fainter, and I could almost fancy, from the anxious glances that Dick cast around him, that in spite of his boasted j knowledge of the woods he had lost his way. It was not, however, till night ac tually fell, and that we were both sinkinir from hanger and exhaustation, that I could get him to acknowledge it "We're in a nice pickle, Master Diek," said I, rather crossly, for an empty stom ach does much to .destroy avian's natural amiability. "Confound yo"ur assurance ; that led yon to set up as a guide Of all men painters are the most conceited " "Come Charley," answered Dick, pood humoredly, "there is no use in growling so loudly. You'll bring the bears and pan thers on us if you do. We must make the best of a bad job, and sleep in a tree." "It's easy to talk my good fellow. I'm not a partridge, and don't know how to roost on a bough." "Well, you'll have to ilearn, then; for if you sleep on the uround, the chances are ten to one but you will have the wolves, nibbling at your toes before day light." , "I'm hanged if I do cither!" said I. desperately. "I am going to walk nil night, and I'll drop before I'll lie down." "Come, come, Charley, don't be a fool!" "I was a fool only when I consented to let you assume the role of guide." "Well, Charley, if you are determined to go on, let it be so. We'll ro together. After all, it's only an adventure." "I say. Pick, don't you i-e.' a liglr.?" "ISy Jove, so there i.-d .Cunie, Pfovi lence intervenes between wdrer-and hunger. Th'.tt tuuxt 8 j ia:ter's hut." T ie liht to which h a i so von set' us and j bo Sjtnei i ;u 1 ien'v called Dick's attention was very faint, and seemed to be about naif a mile distant. It glimmered shro ajrh the dark branches; of the h;mlock aud spruce trees, and! weak as the light was, I failed it as ma riner without a compass hails the star by which he steers. We instantly set out in the direction of our beacon. Iu a mo ment it seemed as if all fatigue had van ished, and we walked as if our muscles were as tense as iron, aud our joints oily as a piston-shaft. We soon arrived at what in the dusk seemed to be a clearing of about five acres, but it may have beeu larger, for the tall forest rising up round, it must have di minished its apparent size, giving it the appearance of a square pit rather than a farm. Toward one corner of the clearing we discovered the dusky outline of a log hut, through whose single end window a faint light was streaming. With a sigh of relief we hastened to the door aud knocked. It was opened immediately, and, a man appeared on the thrcshhold. "We explained our condition, and were in - stantly invited to walk in and make onr- selves at home. Ail our host said he could ofl'er us were some cold Indian corn cakes, and a slice of dried deer's flesh, to all of which we were heartily welcome. These viands iu our starving condition were luxurious to us, and we literally rev eled in anticipation of a full meal. The hut into which we had so uncere moniously entered was of the most poverty-stricken crder. It consisted of but one room,' with a rude brick fire-place at one end. Some deer-skins and old blank cts stretched out by wuy of a bed at the other extremity of the apartment, und the only 13 its visible were two sections of a large pine trunk that stood close to the fire-place. There was no vestige of a ta ble, aud the rest of the furniture was em bodied iu a long Tennessee rifle that hung close to the rough wall. If the hut was remarkable, its proprie tor was still-more so. He was, I think, the most villainous looking man I ever beheld. About six feet two inches iu height, propottionably broad across the shoulders, aud with a hand large enough to pick up u fifty-six pound shot, he seem ed to be a combination of extraordinary strength and agility.' His head was nar row, aud oblong in shape. His straight Indian-like hair fell smoothly over his low forehead as if it had been plastered with soap. . And his black, bead-like eyes were 6et obliquely, and slanted downward toward his nose, giving him a mingled ex pression of ferocity aud cunning. As I examined his features attentively, in which I' thought I could trace, almost every bad passion, I confess I experienced a certain feeling' of apprehension and disirust that I could uot shake off. r . ' While he was getting as the promised food, we tried, by questioning him, to draw hm into conversation. He seemed very lactiturn aud reservtd. He said he lived entirely alone, and had cleared the spot he occupied with his own hands. He said his nam i was Joel; but when we hinted j This ' ime, though horribly tired, I could that he must have some other name, he ! not sleep. A horrible load seemed press pretended not to hear, though I saw hiding on my chest, and every five minutes I brows knit, and his small black eyes flash would start up to see if Dick was keeping angrily. My suspicions of this man were j his watch faithfully. My nerves were further aroused bv observinr a nair of hoes lying in the corner of the hut. These shoes were at least three sizes small er than those thai our gigantic host wore, and yet he had distinctly replied, that he lived entirely alone. If those shoes were not his, whose were they? The more I reflected on this circumstance the more uneasy I felt, and apprehensions were still further aroused, when Joel, as he called himself, took both our fowling-pieces, and, in order to have them out of tiej wav. as he said, hung them on crooks from the wall, at a height that neither 'Dick c I could reach without getting on a stool I smiled, inwardlv, however, as I felt the smooth barrel of my revolver thai was slim" in tli hoiiow of my haci, by its; leathern belt, an fellow has any l tno bad r'it to niYscif, if this designs, the more unprotected ho thinks us the more incau tious he will be, so I made no effort tore tain our gnus. Dick also had a revolver, and was one of taose men who I knew would use it well when the time came. My suspicions of our host grew at last to such a pilch that I determined to com mniiiint them to Diek. Xothiu-jr would be easier thau for this villainous half-breed for I felt convinced he had Indian blood in him notions would be easier than, with the aid of an accomplice, to cut our throats or shoot us while we were asleep, aud so get our guns, watches, and whatever money we carried. Who, in those lonely wood-, would hear the hot, or hear our cries for help? What emis sary of tl'.e law, however sharp, could point out our graves iu those wild woods, or bring the murder home to those who committed it? Linton at first laughed; then gie.v btriou-; and gradually became more a convert to my apprehensions. We hurriedly agreed that, while ne slept the other should wa ch, and so take it in turns through the niiiht. Joel hid surrendered to us his couch of d er-skin and his l l:uct; h", him-el'j said hi; could ideep quite as well o:i the iloor. near tin li e. As Dick an I I were b h vc v lire!, we were auxious to get oar icst as.-soon.as. possible. S....sifter a. hearty m-.-al " ( f deer-st ak and tough cakes, washed down by a good draught from our brandy Hard, I, being the young- est, g t the first houi's sleep, and flung myself on the couch of tkins. As my eyes gradually closed, I saw a dim picture of D el; seated sternly' watching hy tie fire, and the long shape of the half-breed stretching out like a huge shadow upon the floor. After what I could have swrorn to be only a three minute doze, Dick woke me, and informed me that my hour was out; and turning me ou.t of my warm nest, lay down without any ceremony, and in a few seconds was heavily snoring. I rubbed my eyes, felt for my revolver, and sealing myself on one of the pine-stumps, com menced my watch. The half-breed ap peared to be hurried in a profound slum ber, and in the half-weird light cast by the wood embers, his enormous fignre seemed almost Titanic in its proportions. I con fess I felt that in a struggle for life he was more than a match for Dick and myself. I then looked at the lire, aud began a fa vorite anni-enien( of mine shaping forms iu the embers. All sorts of figures de- j fined themselves before me. Battles, lem- pests at sea, laminar faces, and above all j shone, ever returning, the dear features ! of Bertha Linton, my affianced bride S!ie seemed to me to smile at nic ihrougu a burning haze, and I could almost fancy I heard her s:iy, ' While you are watching in the lonely forest I am thinking of you, and praying for your safety A slight movement on the part of the slumbering" half-breed here recalled me from those sweet dreams. He turned on his side, lifted himself slowly on his elbow, and gazed attentively at me. I did not stir. Still retaining my stooping alti tude, I half closed my eyes, and remained tn6tionless. Doubtless he thought I was asleep, for in a moment or two he rose noiselessly, aud creeping with a stealthy step across the floor, passed out of the hut." I listened Oh, how eagerly! It seemed to me that, through the imperfectly joined crevices of the log-walls, 1 could plainly hear voices whispering. 1 would have given worlds to have crept nearer to listen, Out I was fearful of disturbing the fancied security of our nost, who I now felt cer tain had sinister designs upon us. So 1 remained perfectly slill. The whUpering suddenly ceased. The half-lreed re-en-tertd the hut iu the same stealthy way in which he had quilted it, and afier giving a scrutinizing glance ut me, once more stretched himself upon the floor and, af fected to sleep lu a few moments 1 pre tended to a uke yawutd, looktd at my watch, and finding that niy hour hud more than expired proceeded to wake pick.

" " '"" . strumr to a frightful luteh of tensity; at every sound, my head seemed to throb until I thought my temples would burst. The more I reflected on th .' conduct of the half-breed, the more assured I was that he intended murder. Full of this idea, I took my revolver from its sliriff, and held it in my hand, ready to shoot him down at the first movement that appeared at all dansrerous. A haze si-cmed now to pass ! across my eyes. ' Fatigued with ' watching and excitement, I passed lonjr into that semi-conscious state, in which I seem- ed r ri-t tlv aware of everything that ; lassed, although oHeets were, dim and lull in outline, and did not appear so sharply defined as iu one's "waking mo-!

The half-breed h id lit some species of dried herbs, which scut out a strong aromatic odor as it burned. This herb he was holding directly under Dick's nos trils, who 1 now perceived, to my horror, was wrapped in a profound Iumber. The smoke of this mysterious herb appeared i to deprive him of all consciousness, for i he rolled gently off of the pine log, and lay stretched upon the floor. The half- breed now stole to the door, and opened it gently. Three sinister heads peered in out of the gloom. I saw the long bar rels of riiles, and the huge brawny hands that clasped them. The half breed point ed significantly to where I lay with his long bony finger, then drawing a large, thirsty-looking knife from his brea&t, moved towards me. The time was come. My blood stopped my heart ceased to beat. The half-breed was within a foot of my bed; the knife was raised; another instant and it would have been buried iu my heart, when, with a hand as cold as ice, I lifted my revolver, took deadly aim, and lired! A stunning report, a uali groan, a huge cloud of sifpike curling around me, and 1 found myself standing upright, with a dark mass lying at my feet. .' Great God! what have yon done. Sir?" cried the halMiree'dT fa"s!i1ifgto--irrd"'me: "Yon have killed him! He was just about to wake you." I staggered against the wall. My senses, until then immersed in sleep, sud denlv recovered their activity. The ! frightful truth burst upon me iu a flush. I had shot Dick Linton while under the influence of a uight-mare! Then every, thing seemed to fade away, and I remem ber no more. There was a trial, I believe. The lawyers were learned, and proved by phy- rMiitiiia mill 1 1 nan a.-u niu ed Somnnlentin, or sleep-drunkenness; but of the proceedings I took no heed. One form haunted me, lying black aud heavy on the hut floor; and one pale face was ever present a face I saw once after the terrible catastrophe, and never saw again the wild, despairing face of Bertha Linton, my promised bride.
