TRANSLATED FROM THE FRENCH. CHAPTER VIII. THE DAY AFTER THE MARRIAGE. A bright morning light wakened the young people; and Huldbrand lay musing silently. As often as he had dropped asleep, he had been scared by horrible derams of spectres, who suddenly took the form of fair women, or of fair women who were transformed into dragons. And when he started up from these grim visions, and saw the pale, cold moonlight streaming in at the window, he would turn look toward Undine; she lay slumbering in undisturbed beauty and peace. Then he would compose himself to sleep again again to wake in terror. When he looked back upon all this in broad daylight, angry with himself for having let a • suspicion, a shade of distrust of his beautiful wife, enter his mind. He frankly confessed to her this injustice; she answered him only by pressing his hand, and sighing from the bottom of her heart. But a look, such as her eyes had never before given, of the deepest and most confiding tenderness, left him arose cheerfully and joined the family in the sitting-room. The three others were gather ed round the hearth, looking uneasy, and neither of them having ventured to speak his thoughts yet. The Priest seemed to be secretly praying for deliverance from evil. But when the young husband appeared, beaming with happiness, the cf brightened up; nay, the Fisherman ven tured upon a few courteous jokes with the Knight, which good housewife. Meanwhile Undine had dressed herself, and could not help rising to meet her, and stood still, astonished ; the young creature was the same, yet so different. The Priest the first to address her, with anxious he doubt that she forgave him. So he faces a smile even from the came in ; they ir of pa tcrnal kindness, and when he raised his hands in benediction, the fair woman sank on her knees, trembling with pious awe. In a few meek and humble words she begged him to forgive the folly of the day before, and besought him, with great emotion, to pray for the salvation of her soul. Then rising, she kissed her foster parents, and thanking them for all their kindness, she said : " Oh my heart how much you have done for me, how deeply grateful I ought to be, dear, dear people !" She seemed as if she could not caress them ing the dame glance toward the breakfast, she went toward the hearth, busied herself arranging and preparing the meal, and would not suffer the good woman to take the least trouble herself. feel from the bottom of gh ; but soon, observ So she went on all day ; at once a young matron, and a bashful, tender, delicate bride. The three who knew her best were moment expecting this mood to of her crazy every change, artd give place to fits ; but they watched her in vain. There was still the same sweetness. The Priest could not keep his eyes away from her ; and he said more than once to the bridegroom, " Sir, it was a jjreat treasure which Heaven bestowed upon you yesterday, by my poor ministration ; cherish her worthily, and she will be to you a blessing in time and eternity." gelic mildness and Toward evening, Undine clasped the with modest tenderness, and Knight's gently led him out before the door, where the rays of the setting sun were lighting the fresh grass, and the tall, taper The young wife's face up stems of trees, wore a melting expression of love and sad ness, and her lips quivered with some ious, momentous secret, which yet be trayed itself only by scarce audible sighs. She silently led her companion onward; if he spoke, she replied by a look which gave him whole heaven of love and timid submis So they reached the banks of the which had overflowed, and the finding the wild torrent direct answer, but revealed sion. stream Knight started changed into a gentle rippling brook, with out a trace of its former violence left. / " By to-morrow it will have dried up com pletely," said the bride, in a faltéring voice, " and thou mayest begone whither thou wilt"—" Not without thee, my Un dine," said the Knight, playfully; " sider, if I had a mind to forsake thee, the Church, the Emperor, and his ministers might step in, and bring thy truant home." —" No, no, you are free ; it shall be as you please 1" murmured Undine, half tears, half smiles. " But I think thou wilt not cast me away ; is not my heart bound up in thine ? Carry opposite. There I will know my fate, could indeed easily step through the little waves ; but I love to rest in thine thou mayest cast me off ; this may be the last time." Huldbrand, full of anxious emotion, knew not how to answer. He took her up in his arms and carried her over, recollecting that from this very island he had borne her home to the Fisherman on the night of his arrival. When there, he placed his fair burden on the turf, and was going to sit down by her ; but she said," No, sit there, opposite me—I will read my doom in your eyes, before your lips have spoken it. Now listen, and I will tell you all." And she began •— over to that little island I ! and " You must know, my own love, that in each element exists a race of beings, whose form scarcely differs from yours, but who very seldom appear to mortal sight. In the flames, the wondrous Salamanders glitter and disport themselves ; in the depths of earth dwell lhe dry, spiteful race of Gnomes ; peopled by Wood-nymphs, the forests i who are also spirits of air ; and the sea, the rivers, and brooks, contain the numberless tribes of Water-sprites. Their echoing halls of crystal, where the light of heaven pours in. with its and stars, are glorious to dwell in ; the gardens contain beautiful coral plants, with blue and red fruits ; they wan er over bright shells, among the hidden treasures of the old world, too precious to be bestowed these latter days, and long since covered by the silver mantle of the deep ; many a no ble monument still gleams there below, be dewed by the tears of Ocean, who garlands it with flowery sea-weeds and wreaths of shells. Those that dwell there below, -sands, and gay colored than noble and lovely to behold, far more mankind. Many a fisherman has had a passing glimpse of some fair water-nymph, rising out of the sea with her song ; he would then spread the report of her appari tion, and these wonderful beings came to be called Undines. And you Undine." a as be see before you, my love, The Knight tried to persuade himself in one of her wild that his fair wife inoods and had invented this strange tale in sport. But though he said this to himself, he could not for a moment believe it ; a mysterious feeling thrilled him ; and, un able to utter a word, he kept his eyes riveted the beautiful speaker. She shook her head sadly, heaved a deep sigh, and went * We might be happier than our human call you fellow forms are alike,) but for We and the other children fellow-creatures, (for creatures, great evil. of the elements, go down to the dust, body and spirit ; not a trace of when the time comes for you to rise again to shall have perished native sands, flames, winds, and souls ; the elements live, close over die ; and we light spirits live remains ; and glorified existence, with waves. For we have move us, obey us when as free from care as the nightingale, the gold-fish, and all such bright children of Nature. But no creatures rest content in their appointed place. My father who is a mighty prince in the Mediterranean Sea, determined that his only child should be en dowed with a soul, even at the cost of much suffering, which is ever the lot of souls. But a soul while be infused into one of the closest race, only by being united i i bands of love to one of yours. And 1 ha ve obtained a soul ; to thee I owe it, O best beloved ! and for that gift I shall ever bless thee, unless thou dost devote my whole futurity to misery. For what is to become should thou recoil from me and cast t In to Ml me off? Yet I would not detain thee by deceit. And if I now ; go back to the land alone ; plunge into this brook ; il is my uncle, who leads a wonderful, sequestered life in this forest, away from all his friends. But he is powerful, and allied to many great rivers ; and as he brought me here to the Fisher man, a gay and laughing child, so he is ready to take me back to my parents, a lov ing, suffering, forsaken woman." She would have gone on ; but Hulbrand, full of compassion and love, caught her in his arms, and carried her back. There, with tears and kisses, he swore never to forsake his beloved wife ; and said he felt more bles sed than the Greek statuary Pygmalion, whose beautiful statue dame Venus trans formed into a living woman. Hanging on his arm in peaceful reliance, Undine return ed ; and she felt from her inmost heart,how little cause she had to regret the crystal pal aces of her father. leave thee, saÿ so of to his a ; CHAPTER IX. HOW THE KNIGHT AND HIS YOUNG BRIDE DEPARTED. When Huldbrand awoke from sleep the next morning, he missed his fair compan ion ; and again he doubt, whether his marriage, and the lovely Undine, might not be all a fairy dream. But she* tormented with a reappeared, came up to him and said, "I have been out early, to see if my uncle had kept his word. He has recal led all the straying waters into his quiet bed, and now takes his lonely and pensive course through the forest as he used to do. His friends in the lake and the air are gone to rest also ; all things have returned to their usual calmness ; and you may set out homeward on dry land, brand felt as be the the as you please. " Huld if dreaming still, so little could he understand his wife's wonderful relations. But he took no notice of this, and his sweet Undine's gentle attentions : ed every uneasy thought away. charm A little while after, as they stood at the | door together, looking over the fair scene J with its boundary of clear waters, his heart. toward this cradle of his love yearned that he said,—" But why should so soon ? we shall never spend happier have passed in t go away in yonder world, than peaceful nook. Let us at least see two three more Lord wishes," answered Undine,with cheer ful submission ; " but, you see, the old peo ple will be grieved at parting with it is ; and if we give them time to be quainted with my soul, and with its powers of loving and honoring them, I fear that when I go, their aged hearts will break under the load of sorrow, As yet they take my gentle mood for a passing whim, such as ly, like a calm lulled : and they will soon begin to love some favorite tree or flower in my place. They must not learn to know this newly ob tained, affectionate heart, i flowings of its tenderness, just at the mom ent when they are to lose me for this world ; and how could I disguise it from them, if remained together longer ?" go down here."—" As my u lii'n -. they saw me liable to former the lake when the winds the first over Huldbrand agreed with her ; he went to the old couple, and finding them ready to consent, he resolved upon setting out that very hour. The Priest offered to accompany them ; after a hasty farewell the pretty bride band, and they crossed the stream's dry bed quickly, and entered the forest, shed silent but bitter tears, while the old folks wailed after her aloud. It seemed as if some foreboding were crossing their minds of how great their loss would prove. placed on the horse by her hus Undine The three travelers reached the deepest shades of the forest, without breaking si lence. It passed through the leafy bowers : the graeçj fui woman sitting on her noble steed, guai^ side by the venerable Priest in the other a fair sight to behold as the ded one the white habit of his order ; by the youthful Knight, with his gorgeous attire and glittering sword. Huldbrand had eyes but for his precious wife ; Undine who had dried her duteous tears, no thought Qfcll into a but for him ; and they noiseless interchange of glances and signs, which at length was interrupted by the sound of a low murmur,proceeding from the Priest and a fourth fellow-traveller, who had joined them unobserved. He wore a white robe, very like the Priest's dress, except that the hood almost covered his face, and the rest of it floated round him in such large folds that he was perpetually obliged to gather it up, throw it over his otherwise arrange it ; yet it did not seem to impede him at all in walking ; when the young people saw him he saying, " And orthy father, I have dwelt in the so, my forest for many a year, yet I am not what For as I told you commonly call a hermit, you, I know nothing of penance, think it would do makes me so fond of the woods is, that I have a very particular fancy for winding through the dark shades and forest walks, with my loose white clothes floating abouj and then do I much good.

And before they could look round, he of the Priest, close to Undine, and stretch ing up his tall figure to whisper in her ear. But she turned hastily away, saying, " 1 have nothing more to do with you day ! " said the stranger laughing, " what a prodigiously grand marriage yours must be, if you are to cast off your reiations in this way l Have you forgotten Uncle Kuhle born, who brought you all the way here on kindly ?

And he , seeing that the wave which none but myself, and more words. The old Priest there may well say washed him over I landed him safe on the shore in time for your wedding." Undine and the Knight looked at Father Heilmann, but he seemed to be plodding in a waking dream, and not listening to what was said. Undine said to Kuhleborn, " There, I can seethe end of the wood; want your help no longer, and there is nothing to disturb us but you; so, in Jove and kindness I entreat you, be gone, and let us go in peace." This seemed to make Kuhleborn angry ; he twisted his face hideously, and hissed at Undine, who cried aloud for help. Like lightning the Knight passed round her horse, and aimed a blow at Kuhleborn's head with his sword. But instead of the head, he struck into a water fall, which gushed "foaming down a high cliff near them, and now showered them all with a splash that sounded like laughter, and wetted them to the bone. The Priest seeming to wake up, said, " Well, I was ex pecting this, because that brook gushed down the rock so close to us.

But the ending came, sooner it always does, later, and Mr. Fernleigh awoke one morning with the unpleasant conviction that he deeply in love* himself.

How should he explain matters to Bel, and to all the others ? What an idiot he had made of himself! But he really loved Jennie he told himself, and so would brave it out as best he could. The next morning, when he stepped into Mrs. Rathbourne's drawing-room, he found himself in the presence of not only Bel, but a dozen other girls, every one of whom he knew—alas, only too well ! Jennie was no where in sight, but Bel, coming forward, offered him a seat, saying : " You will excuse us, I know, Mr. Fern leigh, i/ we go on with our parts ; rehearsing for private theatricals."

The girls had thrown themselves into chairs, and shrieking with laughter. Will still held him in his bear's embrace, pouring words of love into his unwilling ear.
