"Whilst they were thus engag ed, Antoine was seized with sudden and severe illness. ' Lonis,his elder brother, wished to convey him to the nearest inn, but soon found the attempt impracticable and was 'constrained to accept the hospitality which was so cordially proffered by the wor thy blacksmith and his family.

' A young girl of the neighborhood, named Louise Danchet,- who had long been betroth ed to the young soldier, was present when the fatal letter arrived. She was at first o erpowcred with grief arid astonishment; bnt n a few moments a sudden thought seemed to flash across her "mind and suddenly rising rom her seat, she hastily, left the house. The spot toward which she directed her steps was the neighboring Chateau deVal , which' had been lately purchased by" a rich banker, to whom her brother acted in the ca pacity of game-keeper. ' f M. d' Ami von, who had once filled the sit uation of steward in the household of the Prince deConti, now assumed all the airs of grand seigneur, taking possession of his castle, and was especially desirous of passing himself off as'an - enlightened amateur of painting Louise, who had been asked by her broth er, a few days before, to assist him in unpack ing some pictures had perceived in the corner of one amongst them the signature ' Louis and Antoine Lcnain," and had been struck ..... v -v - by the resemblance borne by some, figures in the group to those of the Herbelot family ."V The young artists having always retained a place in the kindly remembrance of , the good people of the village Louise had frequently heard them spoken of, ", and when the ''well- known name's met her eyes" in the corner of the canvas, it at once Occurred to her . that this painting, which from the care bestowe 1 upon it, she concluded was greatly prized by Lou! - Pan.t made a low courtly nrA' i re ureu, leaving JH. d Amivon cq: ay sur prised at her good manners, and the singu- arity of a painting by the brothers, Lenain beir. offered for sale at a blacksmith's bhnp. Ijouise at first only confided her project to the mother of her betrothed, for she knew well that the good blacksmith valued his pic ture to much that Go would rather sell his bed from under him than part with it. He was to go next day at noon, with his threelsons, to the village notary, to arrange matters for the sale of his forge as well as of the little farm belonging to his eldest son; Louise was therefore pretty sure that the coast would be clear at that hour,' and-that M. d'Amivon might examine the painting at his leisure.' . Punctual to his appointed lime, the bank er duly arrived at the forge at 12 o'clock, and was ushered by M'mc Herbelot and Louise into the best parlor, where the portrait of the family group had now hung for five and twenv ty years. ' - ' : ; - - . .. - r-.' At the first glance M. d' Amivon allowed that this was yet a finer painting than . the one he possessed. ' Buthow, in the name of wonder," heex- claimcd, J did you happen to acquire such a treasure?" ' . . r M'mc Ilerbclot, in a simple and touching manner, related the history of the youug ar tists' stay amongst them, of their gratitude for thekindeless they had received, the birth of the little Antoine, anil the family portrait which his godfather had left him as a part ing gift, and then with tears she told how this beloved child was in the peril of death, and how, for his sake, they were going to give up "the home where they had passed so many years in peace and happiness. The banker, who, though a little pompous and self-sufficient, was, in truth, a kind-hearted . .... man, listened with deep interest to her talc, and when the poor mother and the affianced bride at length cast themselves at his feet, and implored him with the ut most earnestness to purchase the painting fer six thousand ranes the sum demanded for the young man's ransom he raised them with a smile and said: "v " , You need not waste so many entreaties on the matter, my good friends. This painting is worth eight thousand francs, and'I could not, in consequence, give less for it. You may tell Herbelot to come to my house for that sum as soon as he likes." The joy of the two poor women on hearing this, offer may more readily be conceived than described. All that now remained to be done was to persuade the smith to part with his favorite picture. There was a hard struggle in the poor man's mind: as far as lie himself was concerned, he would almost have given up anything else; but when he thought of his wife and children about to be driven from their home, and his captive son, waiting, with an anxious heart, for the sum which was to ransom him from death, he hesitated no lon ger, but hastened with the painting to the Chateau de Val . ..." V "' . j - Here anew source of. consolation awaited him. 5 M. , d'Amivon happened : to have a young artist staying in his house, who, see ing the poor man's grief at parting with the cherished portrait kindly offered to copy it for him during his leisure hours. That very evening notice was given to the village notary to countermand the sale of the forge) and the six thousand francs, duly con tided to the farmer-general, were on their way to Algiers, whilst the remaining two thousand rint i- - - ' --a afterward the whole party r;' ....dt, ' C.uabrc S.r. ..nor did any long I ch ) befure a joyous peal pf belli an- i.

This little history, we would beg to as sure our readers, is no untrue tale. It is well known in the Cambresis, where it is told by many a winter hearth. ;" . ; j The painting of the 'Blacksmith and his Family" was purchased from M. d'Amivon by the .-Prince de Conti, who paid .ten thou sand francs for it.". At length, from hand to hand, it passed into the lloyal collection, and we feel assured that should any of our rca ders. hereafter wander through thc.npblc gal. leries of , the Louvre,. they will jiause to gaze with more than artistic interest on the paint ing which was once a ' Soldier's Ransom."

He had ho said, arrived at the age' 'of "fifty without ever having been at the bal masque, and he determined to see the last which took place at the Opera. ,- To disguise himself, so as not to compromise the gravity of his char acter, he put on a false nose and a large pair ot green spectacles, lie was at first bewil dercd.by the noise, and when he had become somewhat accustomed to the scene, wonder ed great v at ..the -.style-of. dancing, which was-so tlihereut to. that which was in fashion in his youthful days.
