Ill U nllUWNl.ll MAN, During thu portion of the night thus occupied by one party, theru was another, to which 1 must now again roler, that was nolidlo. Tom Smith, on arriving at Hosegill ford, dashed at uuce into the awullen Hood, and with the aid of tho dim light from the partially screen ed windowa of Uobsou'a shop as his guide, hu readied Ihu oppji-tlu bunk in safely. On obtaining a linn fouling theru, ho paused a moment to listen to thu iiuisy rattlu of their looms, but not a treadle wus moving.

CITY OF UANNLBAL, And Rait waa material to his ulliii.iito purpose ;lo determine thia, und Hint beyond a doubt, he instantly thought of a plan neeompliali his , object, and accordingly galloped oll'lo carry it into effect. j Further up the valley, 'iut half a league a bove ll.o ford, it might, ii deed, be called the rhead of the Valley, win u inoiintuinoin ri.!,'c ol rock extending entirely ucrosa from the high lands on onu aide, to th jso on tho ether: -no, not entirely, for thcru aiu a rent in tho centre, i "ss 'I formed by u cardiquuko, ni.,1 this formed Jan cutlet for tlio bro.ik Irotn unother valley im- mediulely ubovu it.

And aa this was tho only road to ll.o Abbey Mam r, tho D di 'sen, if they rcully intended going there that flight, must pas thia way. Nnilh'a uhjer.t, pursuant to I'm plan ho h.ul .lonnod, was to gam tho heights that overlooked lins road, und u '.Mill their coining. In doing so, in circuit of ao:no diilance ha ! to ho made, u cir cumstance w bicli induced him to at ramble up the narrow uud rugged sheep-path, that led in tliem, with Ihu lucre eager haste, lest he sliouhl bo too hil.e. And his fears weru far from groundless; for ho had no sooner seated himself ill n small chasm, liingled w ith weeds and brush. wood, at the top cl the precipice nnd units ; very edge, than hu saw live dirk figures si lently and stealthily gliding along tho road, somo furty or fifty lent beneath I dm ; but their J'oniia teemed no magnified in iho dim starlight, liia lo appear, in his exii'ed imig'lu,th n, lu be much nearer. Onu of their dogs, too growled ja littl.! us they approached thu ms, while ihu jlast of the party paused an instant us if to listen, and then passed on; bill that iustaul was a fearful one to Smith. I lu w usair.iid, ho said, to one of his comrades afterwards, that they I Would hear thu very beating of his heart. As soon us he was certain they were at a laufu distance, ho hastened to the hoii.,u where I he wns lo meet his ullica.

True to their engagement, tho men Smith had loll arrived at thu place of rendevoiis some what within Iho time unpointed. Hero they met their other allies, of w hom he had genu in search. Theso were at a loss to Imagine how they could hiivo missed him. They wailed pa tiently some time, in momentary expectation of bi return. Hour after hour passed nwuy, ad ding apprehension and alarm to their surprise al hia ubsenco, yet still he came not. It was odd, too, as thu morning waa begin ning lo dawn, that they had seen nothing ol'the po.u lu rsi a circiimsl incu w hich gave a darker shade to the mystery they in vain eiidouvored to unravel. 'Was it possible,' suggested une, 'that they could have returned and met the 'keeper' n loner" 'If they have,' another replied, 'by thia titno his wifu'a u widow.' Hut Ibis, the) thought again, was hardly pos sible, ua the nighl was ao favorable for their purpose, and no cue to molest them. Sut day light, which was fast approaching, wou'.d clour up all. In this conjecture, ho'vever, they wcro any thing but correct, for in loss than an hour idler ihcy hud made it, Tom Smith's horse was aeuti gracing on thu banks of thu rivulet without his saddle, and with Iho bridle broken and entan gled among his feet; uud shortly after, Ihu life less body of hia rider was found washed tip uti a lodge of rocka u litllo below thu 'forcu.' 11 11 ji i' 1 r. n v .
