The Rhine is celebrated for its innu merable mined castles and monasteries that stand on its banks, and each Las its history. Our guide told us of one, an eld monas tery near Liogerfield, Mhich I thought worthy cf a place in my note book. I -rive it my own interpretation and present it to the reader, hoping it may meet with approval in its perusal. During the "Thirty Year's YTar" which convulsed Geraiaoy, one fioe summer's afternoon 3 foot traveler came to the little hostelry of the "Traveler's Rest," which stood by the roadside on the river's bank.' Ilts gsrb proclaimed birn a soldier. High black boots were drawn half way up his thighs, in which a loose pair ct breeches lost ihemrcives, and a rusty breast plate covered bis buff leathern jerkin. Abroad leaf low crowned hat, from which a single black feather depened, was pulled low upon his forehead. He was armed with sword and pistols. There was something m his martial bear ing and firm tread that seemed to denote the officer. So at least thought the little sunny-haired maid of the hostlery who came forth to serve him : for she said at ' : once : "What can I serve you with,noble Cup tain ?" "A fiasco cf Rhenish, and of your best vintage, mind, and a bit of something to cat in the first place," answered the sol dier, good naturediy chuckling the girl . under the clue, like one accustomed to that familiarity; "and then a bed for the night." "The first I can supply yon with ; but the second, I am sorry to say, I cannot." It was a man's voice that spoke.— They had been joined by the landlord cf the hostelry—a short pursey little man, with a fat face and a red Dose. "And wherefore not?" asked the sol-' dier, carelessly throwing himself on the wooden bench under the tree that shaded the hostelry with its branches, whilst the girl went to the house to procure the re ireshaieDts he had bespoken. "Because every room is engaged aod I have not a spare bed left. The young llaron Ravensburg, his sister, and their attendants, will ariive this evening. Their © courier was here this morning to bespeak the rooms*" • "That's unfortunate But lam not particular —I am a soldier,a3 you see—so give me a bundle of straw in cue of the 'outhouses, and that will content me." "Impossible !" cried the host, with an alarcity which rathersurprised the soldier "Even as itislshail becompe'ledtc make some of the Baron's servants sleep in the open air. Hy house is but small, as you perceive and the Baron's retinue is large. Ten miles farther on there is an excelcnt inn. You are used to marching," raid the best, with an attempt at facetiousuess "and the distance will be nothing to you." "Excuse aie," answered the soldier,tap ping the heel of his boot with his heavy steel scabbard, and all the while subjeel ing his host to a scrutiny of which he was uccoDcious, "I am not a foot soldier; and in my loogmarefces havebeen accustomed to use four iegs instead of two. I did not come ail the way on foot." "Where is your hcrse?" asked the laodiord, quickly, and with some anxiety the soldier thought. "Some two miles frctn here," he an swered carelessly. "Two miles from here!" echoed the landlord, "there is no house there. Why did you leave him ?" "Simply because he could carry me no further, and I had not beeo in the habit, of carrying him. He was dead." : "Dead!" "Yes. It happened very strangely.— These are very troublous times I know but j I thought the war bad not invaded this quiet province, at least I was told so,and therefore I rode along fearless of danger. 1 When I came to that little glen with rocks and woods crested upon eitherside,! tbot' j —a natural idea forasoldier—that it was a capital place for an ambuscade, aod so it proved, for I scarcely entered it when' two carbines were fired from the thicket.''' "My horse neighed with pain,reared up j and then fell to the earth, carrying me 1 along with him. I knew that he was 1 badiy hurt, for I Lave had horses , under me before ] so I quickly snatched i £cboud to ii}i flrlritipUs of Jrqo jgjtyoclrtejj, i|f)d it)o cf ?j)oi*3iiuf, qfid ifetos COUDERSPORT. POTTER COUNTY, PA., TUESDAY OCTOBER 31, I 86&. my pistols from their holsters, extricated my feet from the sairrups,and went down quietly with him. Fortunately he lay stooc dead, and did not kick I lay mo tionless on bis body and waited for fur ther developments. Two men with car j bine 9io their hands emerged from the thicket and came rapidly toward me. — When they were within ten feot of me I rose and called upon them to surrender, as I was anxious to learu the cause of this unprovoked attack, there being nothing in my appearance, I thought to suggest the idea of booty. But the rascals, who evidently thought me dead were so terri fied that they beat a hasty retreat towards the woods, so I was obliged to seDd a couple of bullets after them to stop tbem* and, being ao indifferent good shot, they did stop, aod unless some good Christian gives them burial, they are likely to stop for some time." , "You shot tbem both?'"* stammered the landlord ; and bis teeth chattered and he grew very pale, all but the tip of his ncae, which, from contrast with the rest of bis face, looked redder than ever. "What would you hate bad me done?" asked the soldier, in his usual careles tone. "Thev might have firei with better succes at some other poor devil of a trav eler, who might QOt have got off so easily as I did." "What could have posessed them to have fired on you ?" exclaimed the land lord, and it almost appeared that he was asking himself the question as much as he did the soldier. ••Precisely the question I asked myself returned the soldier; aod since you have mentioned the expected arrival of the young Baroa of Ravensburg. I think, I have a clue to the wbole affair. Some outlaws. Laviug heard of the Barons jour ney, have formed a plan to waylay him. These two men were sent out as scouts to apprise the others of his approach.— Seeing a solitary horseman approach,they concluded to plunder a little on tueir own account. As I was Dot molested further on u>y way hither, the rendesvous of the band must be beyond there, consequently the Baron will reach this house in safety. Xow if you cannot accommodate me with a bed I shall take up my quarters tonight upon this bench, for I know something of his family, of the danger which threatens him*" The landlord gazed curiously at bis un ceremonious guest. There was no mis taking the man. Courage and determin ation were highly stamped upen his fair features. '•You arc an officer?" ho said inqui ringly. ! "Yes." ' Captain ?" "Exactly." "Disbanded ?" "No." The quiet smile that accompanied this answer bewildered the landlord. In fact, the captain was an enigma that the wor thy host of the "Traveler'sßest" found it impossible to solve, The appearance of the maid of the hos telry with a flask of wine and the refresh ments the Captain had orderded, Jnter rupted the conversation. The host whispered to the girl.and then hurried away. What did he say to you ?" asked the captain, abruptly, fixing his keen eyes up on the girls face. "To wait upon you while he weDt up to the monastery ?" answered the girl un he?itatiogly. "The monastery ? rejoined the Cap tain, leisurely inspecting the contents of the flask of Rhenish, which seemed to be much to his satisfaction. "TLat old rutD upon the hill yonder. Is it then occu pied ?" "Oh, yes; about a year ago 3 partv of wandering monks, who.-" tuaoastery had been destroyed by the soldiers of the leacue occupied it *, and they have remained ever since. They call themselves the "Black Brotherhood" of St Bruno." And very pi ous and seif-denying mec they aie.too. They keep wrapped up in au odor of sanctity all the time. They never hold any communication with the worid with out ; nostranger is admitted beneath their walis ; and whenever one of the brother hood comes out, he always has bis biack cowl drawn closely over his face. Though I have been here as long as they have, 1 j . neveryet saw oDe with bis face uncovered.'" "I thought you said your uncle was go ; ing there ?" remarked the captaiD, care ' lessly sipping his wine. | "Oh !he only goes to the porters wick et; be never goes in. He supplies the! monks with food." "And how many bottles of this capital wioe a month ?" "I am sure I do not know how many, • but I kDow that we have more empty flasks at the end of the week than the ! number of travelers could possibly have drank." "I thought so. The close neighborhood of these good monks account for the ex-1 oelence of the wine. St.Bruno,your very good health. Do many travelers pais this | way, sweetheart?" I "Not many ; and what seems to me very singular,'* continued thegirl,bending towards the captaiD, and speakiDg io a low, cautious whisper, "none that pass this way ever return." p "Indeed I what kind of a read is it be tween this hostelry aod the next stopping place ?" > "Very lonely and desolate." "Infested by robbers, eh ?" "I believe so, though my unole assures travelers that there is no danger" "Who is your uncle—the landlord?" "Yes; I am his niece, Bouita, if you please, sir." "Whether I please or not,is more than I cau say, but you please me, uiy pretty! Booita." He,caught her quickly arcuod the waist drew her upon his EDGC, and imprinted a kiss upon her cherry hps. Thegirl freed herself from his embrace aod retreated in confusion, but she did not seem very an-' gry at the liberty the soldier had taken.! It was something to be a handsome Cap tain even in those day?. The sound of approaching wheels DOW attracted their attention, and a light trav eling carriage, drawn by two horses and driven by a pcstillioD, and accompanied by four out riders drove up to the hostelry. The attendants opened the carriage door p.nd a young man in the handsome uni form of Papeobeim's Dragoons jumped out and assisted an elegantly attired young lady to alight from the carriage. They were the Baron Ravensburg, Colonel io the Imperial service, and his sister, the Countess Adaial. The landlord, woo had returned from the monastery, welcomed them and con ducted them into the hostelry, while two rough looking hostlers took charge of the carriage, Tae out riders stabled their own animals The Captain had observed all that had passed with a very attentive eye. Ids had expected a much larger escort. The la dy was without a maid, and the Baron had bat five attendants; and yet the landlord toid him there was no accommo dations. There was something wrong. J The Baron came in from the hostelry followed by Bonita, bearing a fresh flask of Rhenish. I "Good evening.Capiaio." be said.cour ' teously, touching hie plumed beaver with a graceful action which bespoke the fin ished cavalier, "perhaps you will do me the favor to drink this flask of Rhenish with me?" "With all tny heart, answered the captain cheerfully; * mine is emptv." The Baron seated himself on the beDcb and Bonita placed the flask and cups be i fore tbem. "Stay 1" cried the captain, 23 she was ; going; "how many mocks are there in ■yonder convent, my pretty Bonita ?" | "Twenty I think*.captain,' she answered. • Thank you ; that will do." She went intothe house. The Baroc re garded the Captain attentively. His question about the monks seemed to sur prise hiui. "Do you think of retiring from the world. Captain." he laughingly inquired "and taking up your abode ia yonder monastery ?" "I ? laitb. not I!" He filled the cups in that careless, off handed manner which pervaded everything he did. and raised his to his lips. "Your health Baron Ravensburg." "You have the advantage of me answer ed Ravensburg. as he responded to the toast. "Oh ! call me Captain Bernard. "I passed a dead horse on the road.— The landlord tells me it was yours. I. also saw the bodies of the men slain by you. A narrow escape, Captain. By-the way. are you in the Imperial service ?" "I am net. To be frank with you, my sword is at present at liberty. "Then take service with me. Tbero is something in your appearance that be speaks the gentleman and the scidier'and I like you. There is a Majority vacant in my regiment which I can promise you.*' On my word, Baron," returned the Captain, smiling good bumoredlr, "you do me much honor on so brief an acquain tance ; but we are likely to rerve together in a sharp campaign, which is Dearer than you imagine. Whether you or I shall take direction of the affairs depends upon yourself after you have heard what I have to tell you." "ID Heavens name,what do you meaD?' exclaimed Baron Rarentibarg,iQ astonish ment. "Softly—in a whisper—there may be 1 long ears about us. In a word, we are io a den of cut-throats. Y'cuderold monas tery is occupied by a band of robbers in the disguise of monks. The landlord oi this hostelry is io league with them.— They have been apprised of your coming and will either attack you here, or to-mor i row upon the desolate road beyond. As they know I am here, from the landlord, ' and may warn them, I should not be sur j prised if they assailed us here to Dight.' "Good Heavens ! my poor Adalia! I ! care not if I can 82v her. Twenty of! tbem, the girl said—and I have but five men—twenty against six!" ••Excuse me; your calculation is erro nius. There are but eighteen against seven. You have counted two who are killed, and you have cot counted me." , "You will aid me then. My dear Cap tain, this is generous " "My dear Baron, it is nothing of the kind, I merely enter iDto an alliance with you for our mutual benefit; as you have thestrongest party the advantage is decid edly upon my side. You they might possibly plunder and suffer to depart,but me they would certainly kill iu rcreDge for their comrades slaughter.'' •'Captain, I place the direction of this affair in your hands—myself and people are at your orders. What is your best course of action ?" "Invite me iDto supper with ycu when the landlord announces that it is served.) I will secure htm. Then your people must secure the hostlers and put them in a safe place. Then collect your whole force io to the bouse and let us barricade it to the best of our ability. Eighteen men will fiud it difficult to dislodge seven,even out cf this small framework. Having; deprived the robbers of all means of ob taining information ia regard to our plans I will make the landlord divulge theirs. You have no idea what a pursuasive way I have." This plan was carried out to the letter, and a pistol held by the firm baud of the Captain at the head of the guilty and trembling landlord, compelled him to di vulge all. Tue Baron and his sister were to be held for ransom, aod the captain S killed,he not being considered worth a ransom. "When all had retired to rest the landlord was to admit the robbers in to the hostelry. The Captain laid his plans at once The front door was left unfastened, but every other available aperture was secured as firmly as was possible under the cir cumstances. The Countess and Bonita were placed in the upperstory for securi ty, with the postillion as a guard. The 1 Captain, Baron, aod the ethers.each arm ed with a sword and a brace cf pistols,oc cupied the large apartment cf the ground floor. The landlord was to admit the! robbers one at a time,as had been arrans- 1 ed by the Captain of the band Limself.and as fast a3 they entered they were to be secured and gagged and bonnd cr killed ! outright, as circumstances warrranted. The hour for attack drew near, and ev ' Cry heart beat anxiously. The coMest man of the party was the captain. Un couciously be had assumed entire direc tion of the affair, and the young Baron and Lis followers obeyed him explicitly, seeming to recognize, Lis fitness for the position without question. A stealthy footstep approached the door and the landlord, assisted by the cold barrel of a pistol, which felt disaerecablv' close to the back of his head, admitted a robber, who was instantly secured- An other followed,until it came to the eighth —a stout, brawny fellow—who, by a hur culean effort, twisted his throat out of Captain Bernard's grasp, and shouted at the top of his ianss— "We are betrayed !" Two other robbers who were close be hind. discharged their carbines ia at the door and instantly retreated. A ye'ii of pain answered the discharge,and ODe man fell in the hoste'yr. The door was in stantly shut and barricaded Lights were brought forward, and the maa who baa falien was raised. It proved to be the landlord. He was quite dead, both bul* ; lets having taken effect in his body. After a brief consultation the robbers advanced in a body agaiDjt the door, at tempting to hew it cpen with axes which they had procured from the stables. They were met with a fusilade of pistol shots that thinned them to one half before they had forced the door, and theD it was the besieged that sallied forth, and not they that entered. The survivors of the baud fled. The fight was over. Fifteen of the band were killed, wounded and prisoners. The prisoners were treated with the sum mary justice of military times, beiDg shot at sunrise by the Baron's followers. The Baron and his sister renewed their journey in the morning, attended by Cap tain Bernard, wham the Baron furnished with a horse by dismounting one of his own followers,and Bonita. whom the Coun tess had engaged as maid. The Captain left the Barcn at the first stopping place. They parted with mutual expressions of regret. But thev were destined to meet again. On the bloody field of Lutzeno, when Pipsenheim fell, and bis routed cavalry fled in dismay be fore the impetuous charge cf the S weeds Ravensburg was made prisoner. He was led before the victor cf the well-fought field, Bernard Vou Weimer, who bad as ' * ' sumed command of the Protes'ant army : on the fall of Gustavus Adolphus, aod in the brave soldier and skillful general he recognized Captain Bernard,the destroyer I of the "Black j TERES,- $1.50 PER ANNUM. Matrimony Assorted and Shipped. A vessel filled with not very homely young ladies, has just been dispatched Pacific-ward, it seems that the looely pioneers who live in the sunset are weary of each other's company, and have raised a loud and bereaved cry, as one of thtf prophets in the wilderness raised for thef ravens, that angels may come to their as* sistancc out of the East. The gentle sex# with a spirit of adventure which does honor to their courage, a missionary spiril which redounds to their humanity, and # matrimooial willingness which lends be' nevolence and bliss to the hardening theories of existence, at once dropped tbd brooms.whisks, mops, and other cbeerfnl domestic articles, ana resolved themseltet into a cargo in DO time. They instanced in this the true American pluck and adaptativeness. and will no doubt help to make the wilderness blossom like the rose* to the great satisfaction of those hunters, diggers and mariuers whose notions of home without a mother aere certainly tho accepted oDes of our species everywhere* both in ballad and oat of it. This phaeO of colonization on our Contineot is mors suggestive than novel. Far back in tbd days of civilization the British companies despatched ship loads of wives to these shores, and the vr.unted first families of Virginia may find in many cases their maternal tree amoog these transplanted and hardy engraftings. But it is a strange evidence of the real and perfected con struction of our society that many of the fields of industry in the East are filled beyond our ability to satisfy the laborers. This is particularly true of the depart ments in which females engage, and every year makes matrimony here mete ot aa enterprise then a convenience. In this status of population aod patronage, the tendency to emigration is natural and encouraging. Poverty has always less temptation and more equal opportunities in a new and developing society. If all be true that is eaid of the Pacific, it is the place for our brave young men to-day j and as aa easy sequel, quite as good place for our braveyouog women.—JKATj Citizen. * i mm t 9 ——- A Herotoe. At Pilan in Prussia, now lives a wotnad who has for some years consecrated her iife to the noble aod dangerous task of resecuiog persons from drowning; When ever a tempest comes on,day or night, C atherine Kleninfeldt, who is the widow of a sailor, is ready with a boatjis which she puts out to sea, aod frequently gees far ther than any other, in order to give help to those who maybe shipwrecked. More than three hundred individuals have been saved by her efforts, and accDStomed for .twenty years to take voyages with her hus band, she posesses a skill and hardihood that reodeis these efforts unusually 6uc ' cessful. Whenever she is seen,the great est respect is paid her, End the sailors re gard her as a guardiao angel; the very children of the fishermen go upon their knees to bcr, and kiss the skirts of hef dress. The Prussian &"d other govern ments have decreed her medals, and the Principality of Pnlan has made her au honorary citizen for life. She is about sixty years ct age, with an athletic figure and great strength, (a Grace Darling en larged into gigaotic proportions;) she has a masculine countenance which however* is softened by the benevolent expression that it constantly wears. ■■ i XOELE SENTIMENTS — Condemn no man, says John Wessley,fcr not thinking as you think.
