fair, beautiful woman he sought, but the
aged, withered form ofhis old nurse Debo rah. who was busily employed m turning her spinning wheel. Though greatly disappointed in not be holding his own—his beautiful Ulrica. Kins kv named in tlie door-wav. and surveyed ■wrth tender emotion the friend of his infan cy, whilst a thousand early and pleasing re collections crowded upon his mind. But his reverie was broken by the old house-dog, which had belonged to his father, and which lay stretched at the aged matron's feet start ing up, and bounding round him with loud | and joyous cries, testify ing his pleasure at i the unexpected meeting. ' Ah, Zousky ! df > i you remember your old playfellow ? said Kinskv, as he stopped to caress him; whilst ; the old woman, stopping her wheel, cried in , an eager tone—' Heaven he praised, it is the | Toice of my master's son " and the next mo in her arms, whilst the - , . , , I • n\tr rted i' erhned Ivan in a tone al i Distr -cted echoed I' an, in a t me at most amounting to a scream ot anguish ; j 'perhaps the news of my death-.

M lyhap you ilo not 1 know how the face of things is altered here? ] But 1 suppose you went to the Parsonage first, and heard of the death of the dear old | people. Your poor mother heard that you I wie killed in the wars, and the news broke her heart ; and your father, heaven bless him ! did not long survive ; but he made a good end, and we buried him under his fa vourite tree ; and of all his kindred there only Deborah and Zousky there lett to was mourn. 4 But Ulrica Waverman ! my beloved Ul Alus 1 1 fear she is no rica, where is she ? longer living. • Oh she lives, poor lassie, and was here just now. Ivan, to do with LRriea Waverman ? ly your thoughts do not rim on her still ?' • Why surely, Deborah, you have forgot ten that she is my betrothed wife, the last, the dearesttieth.it binds me to this world,' cried Ivan, man's look and voice startled him. • But years have passed since then, my son, and Ulrica is no wife for you,' the dame, regarding the soldier with a pity- j ing glance. even But what have vou, master Sure hilst something in the old wo replied j • She 's married, then !' exclaimed Kins ng the arm of Deborah—' Speak itti these ; - 'Alas'' returned Deborah, '1 would j she were a wife—the poor girl is quite dis- ! ! ky, s**. out, clu woman, nor torture me insinuations.' h?rXÄ w. of the unhappy eirl B Midlv attached to tier seducer she lave herself uo to despair Since the death If her mother have resided with her but she is seldom at home, and wanders about j to the rocks near the sea with her little bos, singing sad ditties to the winds and waves. | The Count who sti'l loves her came to - '. night and' they lelt the house together I Here' the old'woman leased her relation, I and Ivan, who had listened to her tale with 1 for tearless horror, started up and rushed from the house. ! The wind, that had been gradually rising ' during the day, now blew a perfect l.urri cane, and swept through the old fir trees in j w'1° V mW ÄS, le' säSü SSfÄru . ver tier, at times illuminating the scene with momentary splendour, and then again in- to Volving all in deepest gloom. The night was congenial to the desolate fe-vlings of Ivan Kinskv, and he paused not in bis flight from the village, till he found himself among the lofty cliffs whichever hung the ocean, and which had been his fa Tourite walk in his boyish dreams of future ! advancement; and, seating himself on a projecting c~. g, he gazed with sullen des- 1 perution oil the agitated mass of waters, a* ' they rolled with impetuous fury against the j rocks. His dream of misery, however, was soon disturbed by a female voice singing rear him. He started up and gazed round hi n ; tho' the notes were sweet, they were j wild, broken and frenzied; and Ivan, with 1 horror, beheld Ulrica, leaning over thc edge ot a tremendous peak of the rock. In a j state of mind little superior to her's. Kins- ! ky began ascending the frightful eminence i on which the phantom stood—for it appear ed almost impossible for human footsteps i to have climbed the summit of the cliff. The projecting crags at times hid her from his | view; but the sound ot that voice, whose everv tone was a fresh stab to his heart , 1 guided the unhappy soldier to the sp,t. I The moon now shone brightly through i the clouds ; and he paused a moment to con template the vvreck of all his earthly hopes. Her long hah-floated loosely round her shoul-l ders, fantastically wreathed with wild flow- ; ivy and sprigs of yew ; her face was pale as marble : its expression stern and ' desperate; her white garments waved in j the blast; and she now remained motionless, gazing on the foaming billows that raged ! beneath her feet. But slie was alone. All ! his former affection rushed over the mind of ! Kinskv, and springing forward,, he threw himself at her feet, exclaiming, 'Oh, God' i my unhappy, lost Ulrica! is it thus, and on such a night we meet?' Here his feelings overpowered him, and he bowed his face his hands and wept; whilst the maniac re plied, 'Who are you that asked for the wretched Ulrica? Why do you weep? Have j you lost vour love? 1 had one once but he , died In the wars.' ■ ' He lives, Ulrica' it is he who now kneels ' before you. Look on me, Ulrica' tell me j that you still remember Ivan Kinskv.' She gazed on him with a vacant stare. * Yes'! yes! you are tlu* Emperor of Germany, you come to drag me to the prison ' I have done a brave deed to-night-Bwill you kill me for that? And here she clenched her hands, and burst into a delirious laugh, lier child occurred to the mind of Kinskv, and in a -one of horror he said—'Unhappy girl, wha* Cl's, , . , , , ... ™ Ij^üomtedTo^JavesfÏnd ' begin smg- ' P • ! mg- I Where the dark tide runs strongest, | The chfl rises steep, !
