By the author of the "Orange Girl of Venice.'* (CONTISCBO raow LAST WCBK.) CHAPTca IT. The traveler's halt was large tad roomy, well lighted, and furnished with a heavy bar in one corner, a large ob long table in tbe centre, and a vast num ber of chairs and settees scattered thro' and ranged along the sides of the wall. Behind the bar were two good looking females, whose tall, stout, and well-knit frames stamped them of an extremely masculine character. They were evi dently sisters, and could not apparently have been over six or eight and twenty years ef age. The landlord was sitting at the large oblong table, earnestly engaged in peru sing a newspaper. As we entered, he threw down the paper, and rose to wail upon us. He was tall and stout, with a fine set of Roman features—a lofty brow, gray, bushy hair, and an eye filled with the spirit of benevolence. Still, despite his frank, generous look, there was some thing so repulsive in the ensemble of his features, that I felt my heart knocking against my breast, as if warning me of danger. As his eye met that of my companion, his lip tor a moment quiver ed, and a slight tremor ran like a shock of electricity through the muscles of his frame. My companion's face, as he seated himself opposite me, was flushed with some mysterious excitement. Our feet met under the table, and his pressed mine significantly, for a moment, and was then immediately withdrawn. The food that we had called/or was set before us, together with a lar ^e flag on of foaming ale, from which we filled our long narrow glasses, as we dispatch ed our meal. •What cheer, friends?' asked our host, seating himself at the table, a short dis tance from us. 'What news The King still reigns in Prussia,' f§. plied my companion, without looking up 'and threatens, in his last manifesto, to look better to the laws.' •Ah observed the host, with a laugh 'the old tale. He has been threatening that, to my knowledge, for these ten years.' But he spake emphatically, now,' continued iny companion, with a mean- ear like 'ove» tbo' 'tis only a bird, Whose notes of wild music are gentle and lowj Whose voice will recall the joys of the past, And check the warm tears ere ia sorrow they Yen, something to lore, for my boeom is Ml When affection comes not with its beautiful ray And dark are the shadows which gather around, To vanish my vision of gladness away.

'Indeed to whom do you allude V 'It is impossible for you not to com prehend me. I speak of iht, highway- man. Nevertheless, I am anxious to learr. the name of 'his great highwayman, whose crimes are so well known in Prus sia, that they strike terror to the hearts of all ages and sexes, and for whose head the scaffolds of Frederick art to impa tiently waiting.' His name—you wish to know his name 'Hove I not said so 'You wish me to pronounce it here, before this gentleman your companion continued the in-keeper, maliciously. 'Certainly.

Give us the name of this terrible highwayman, by all means.' •The narfte, then gentlemen, of this man of a thousand crimes—the name of this great crim inal, held in such utter horror and detestation, throughout all Prussia—the name of this terrible man, whose infamous history is in the mouths of all—the name of this monstrous be ing, whom the laws have long since pre judged, and for whose capture there ts a standing offer of three thousand thaiers to any man or I deliver him into sarcastic The face ef the in-keeper blanched, and his eyes shot fire at my companion A sensation of danger crept over me at this reply why, I could not compre-1 hend but it stole over me like the cold jg crawling «f a snake, md made mejaht t( of shiver. gujer has i TECTH WITHOUT rCAB—JCSt, AW» FT A* HOT.

'Tin true,' observed coolly. my companion Prussia unfortunately knows many I but they are small operators, mere no bodies, compared with him of whom all Prussia speaks with horror and affright. Men speak of him as the highwayman. Beside his deeds, the crimes of the en tire robber horde of the country siuk into insig lficance. •I am so very ignorant,' presisted my companion, 'and so great a stranger to this part of the country, having but re cently arrived here., that i must still plead my utter inability to comprehend you. 'What!

We followed a young man, who pro ceeded us with a lamp, up three flight of stairs, to a chamber, having in it a large double bed and a small dressing table, that stood between two rhairs. The young man set the lamp upon the table and asked us if we had any further orders. 'None,* said ray companion. The attendant then vanished, after rarelessly closing the door. CHAFTEa HI.
