The young lady, having heard the voices of the free masons, and prompted by the curiosity na tural to all, to see this mystery so long and so secretly locked up from public Tie w, had the courage to pick a brick from the wall wiih her scissors and thus witnessed the two first steps of the ceremony - - Curiosity gratified, fear at once took pos session of her mind, and those who under' stand this passage well know what the feel ings of any person mrist be who could un- awfully behold that ceremony; let them then udge what were the feelings Of a young girl under.such extraordinary circumstances There was no mode of escape, except through the very room where the concluding part of the second step was still being solemnized, at the far end, and the room a tery large one Miss St.Leger had resolution sufficient to attempt her escape that way, and with light but trembling steps glided along unobserved. aid her hand on-the handle oi ten door, and opened it, before her stood, to her dismay, a grini and sUrly Tyler with' his long sword un sheathed. . . .
