runner, without hurting a hair of his head.
When the runner awoke ami jumped up, he
saw his pitcher standing empty, ami the |
king’s daughter far ahead of him. Still he
did not lose heart but taking up the pitcher
he ran hack l<> the well, Idled it again, ami
got to the goal leu minutes before the king’s
daughter. So he won her for ids master. —
‘Lonk-ye ?’ said he,‘now von sec how J can
run ; I hardly lifted my legs before.’
But the king was vexed, and his daughter 1
still more; that she should be carried oil'by
a common soldier.; and they consulted to-I
getber how they might gel rid of him and j
his companions. ‘Do not vex yourself,’
said the king ; ‘I have found a means to pre
vent their troubling us any more.’ Then
lie went to Fritz and bis friends, ami said,
‘Come my lads, it’s time to cal and drink;
you shall ?.ll have a merry-making together.’ i
So he led them to a chamber, the door of
which was of iron, and the windows fasten
ed with iron bars ; and in the chamber stood ;
a table spread with the choicest and most {
delicious dishes. ‘Prithee come in, and
make yourselves merry,’ said the king. But
no sooner had they entered the room, than
he ordered the door to be shut ami bolted.
Then he called the cook, am! bade him make i
a large fire under the chamber, ami beat the j
iron red-hot. So the cook went and did as j
the king ordered..
Now as Fritz and his comrades were sit-j
ling at table, they began to feel excessively !
warm. At first they thought little of this, j
am! fancied that it only came from eating j
and drinking. But it still grew hotter and {
hotter, until at length they could bear it no j
longer, and tried, to.make their escape; but j
the door ami-windows were all fastened.—
Then the king’s wicked intention came to j
• light, and lltev saw plainly that he wished to i
stifle them. ‘We’ll be a match for him yet!’ j
said the man with the wonderful hat; ‘I!
will bring a frost that shall cool the fire in j
a trice.’ So saying he set his hat straight-
Opon his head, ami instantly there came on j
such a frost, that- all tiie fire vanished, and j
the food upon the dishes was frozen ami ;
like ice.
After a few hours, the king fancied that j
Frits and his friends must all have perished :
in the heat; so he ordered the door to be
unlocked, and went himself to look alter
them. But when the door was opened,
there they all sat, safe and sound, but shiv- 1
ering and shaking with the cold. ‘Well,’
said Fritz to the king.‘l’m glad you are come
at last to let us out, that we may get a little
warm; we should soon have perished with
cold in this chamber: look-ye, all the food is
frozen on the dishes.’ Then the king went
iiv; a great rage to the cook, and rated him
well for not having done as he ordered.—
Bit the cook answered, ‘There is fire e
lough to roast an ox; let your majesty
come ami see with your own eyes.’ bo the
king went to the furnace, where a great fire
was burning, and he. saw plainly that he
could do nothing with Fritz and his servants
in this way.
The king turned over in his mind all the
plans he could think of to get rid of his
troublesome Quests ; then he called Fritz
and said, ‘lf you will take money, and give
up your right to my daughter, you shall
have as much gold as you please.’ ‘V\ ith
all my heart, your majesty,’answered fritz;
‘give me what money my servant can carry,
and you may keep your daughter and wel
come.’ At this the king was highly pleas
ed, and Fritz said,‘ln a fortnight 1 will come
back and fetch the money.’
Then Fritz went and called together all
the tailors in the kingdom, and told them
that thev must set hard to work for a whole
fortnight ami sew him a sack. And when !
it was ready, the strong man had to come,
lake the sack upon his shoulder, am! go with
his master to the king. Then said the king, |
‘who is that strong-backed fellow, with a
huge bale upon his shoulders as big as a
house ?’ The truth was, he was in a terri
ble fright, when he thought what a load of
money the man would carry oil. r l hen the
king ordered a ton of gold to be brought,;
which it look sixteen of the strongest men
to carry; but the strong man packed it all
into the sack with one hand, and said |
‘Come, quick! why don’t you bring more? |
this will not cover the bottom ol the sack.’
So the king ordered all his treasures and ,
money to be brought, one bag alter ahother,
and the strong man stowed them away in
his sack : but still it was not half full. ‘ls
this all ?’ cried the man ; why don’t you
bring more f’ Then seven thousand more
wagons full of gold were brought from eve
ry corner of the kingdom, and the strong
man stuffed them into his sack, wagons, ox
en and all, saying, ‘There is no use of be
ing particular, so I may as well take what
conies to hand.’ But when all w T as put into,
it, there was still room fora great deal more.
‘I must make an end of this business,’ cried
the man ; ‘moreover tis easier to lie up a
sack when it is only half full.’ So saying, j
he threw it over his shoulder, and jogged
on vvi'h his companions.
I When the king saw a single man carry
ing off the wealth of his whole kingdom,
he fell into a rage, and ordered his soldiers j
to mount their horses and ride alter f ritz
and hw friends and lake the sack away from
the strong roan. So away galloped two
Troops of horse soldiers, who soon overtook I
the travellers; then they called aloud to]
Ihem, ‘Haiti you are our prisoners; lay
the sack down, or it shaH fare ill with you.’ |
that you *ay r’ answered the man i
the strong breath ‘we your prisoners
shall all of you dance a jig in the air.’
W aj saying, he closed one side of his nose
* and blew out of the other, until all the sol
diers were scattered to the winds, and car
lied over the mountains and far away. But
an old sergeant begged hard for mercy, say
mg that he bad fought bravely in the wars
and had nine wounds, and the sergeanlalight- {
cd safe ami softly on the ground. T’ltcn 1
said the Blower to him, ‘Now go your way
to the king, and tell him to send some more
of his troops, and I’ll blow them away af-i
ter the others.’ But when the king heard I
this message he said, ‘Let them go! let)
them go! they are a pack of conjurers.’—
So Fritz and his comrades took home all
the money, divided it among them and lived
rich and happy to the end of their days. j

the author of ‘The Red Rover
‘ Water Witch? etc,
Wc have l!ic pleasure of being able to announce
j to the 50,000 readers of Graham’s Magazine, that
■wo shall commence the publication in the Novern-
I her number of Graham’s Magazine, of anew Novel
!<y James Fenimore Cooper, entitled ‘The Islets
of THE Gulf, 7 a Sea Novel, written in the very
best vein of that accomplished novelist. This Story,
I which is intended to bring out the author’s brilliant
powers in the description of sea scenes and incidents,
while it. will describe most powerfully .nautical ad
ventures and engagements, has a delightful vein of
jof sentiment running through the entire work. The
\hcrcinc ‘Raise,’ id one of the sweetest characters
ever drawn by Mr. Cooper, and one of the L Old
| Sail's' has a vein of humor and home-spun philoso
j.phy equal to ‘Natty Rmnpo,’ in his best days.—
I This novel will run through twelve or fourteen
numbers of‘Graham,’ and vve predict for it ‘a run,’
unequalled by anything Cooper has ever written.
Subscribers to the January volume of the Maga
zine will receive the entire sheets of‘The Islets of
the Gulf’—which commences in November. It is
understood, that the novel will make from ten to
fifteen pages extra, in each number of the Magazine,
so that subscribers will receive this novel in addi
tion to the usual quantity of reading matter in Gra
ham. The publishers have given Twelve Hun
dred Dollars far the novel, and with the Premi
ums mentioned below, Graham will undoubtedly
excel all the Magazines for 1847.
Fur liter Attractions for 1847.
With more splendid Embelishments, greater
a larger snbscriptionlist
than any Magazine in the country.
The great popularity of Graham’s Magazine, in
every part of the Union, in consequence of the en
gagement of the very best writers as contributors,
and artists of the highest celebrity and acknow
ledged abilities to illustrate the work, has made it
a sort of polar star to all the other periodicals. So
that every thing done by ‘Graham’ is instantly pro
mised by the whole tribe. The promise the public
might forgive, or at least forget, but the wretched
attempts made to imitate the costly and beautiful
works of art which adorn this work, and the pover
ty of their imitations in the literary department,
have impaired the public confidence and given a turn
to our periodical literature which would ultimately
bring it into disrepute and contempt.
We have resolved, so far as ‘Graham’ is concern
ed, to correct the error, and as the magazine litera
ture of America is now confined to ‘Graham’ and
his imitators, we are determined to give a proper
direction to the popular taste; and propose in the
coming volume greatly to amplify the literary de
partment of the work —to engage none but the very
best writers —to open a field for young writers of
merit—and, in fine, to cultivate a National Periodi
cal which shall command respect at
la order to call forth the very best talent that the
country can produce, we offer the following pre
miums fur the best articles on the subjects designa
ted ;
§3OO for the best Sea Story, of not Jess than 30
pages of the Magazine.
§2OO for the best Story founded on our Revolu
tionary Incidents.
§2OO for the best Essay on
and its Prospects-
$l5O for the best Poem, of not less than 100 AnedHM
§l5O for the best Story of Domestic Life. Lll

The volume to be opened with a new and beauti
ful type, the finest white paper, and with a series
of Embellishments, unsurpassed by any which have i
yet appeared in any Magazine.
The style of elegance, the beauty and finish
the illustrations, and the extensive
which will be made in its typographical appearance,
and above all, the tone of its literary department
given it by the brilliant array of its contributors,
whose articles will enrich the pages of each num
ber, will give it a character above any Magazine in
the Union.
The Magazine has become the standard of taste
in matters of embellishment, and has led the way in
every thing really beautiful published in the Maga
zines. The voice of the public press, while it pla
ces the work at the
is unanimous in the announcement, that no work
ever started in the country has been so elegantly
embellished or lias so rapidly increased. For the
new volume, the ihost extensive arrangements have
been made, with the most distinguished artists in
the country, for a supply of elegant embellishments
of all sorts.
It affords us much satisfaction to be able to state,
. that we have made arrangements with Mr. Sartin,
, the accomplished Mezzotint Engraver, whose plates
have contributed so much to the beauty of the Ma
, gazine heretofore, by which we secure his splendid
■ Mezzotint s for this work alone. Those beautiful
engravings will, therefore, form a feature of Gra
ham's Magazine, so that we shall be able to distance
. any tiling like competition on this ground.
These exquisite creations of taste and skill we
II have engaged exclusively, from the publisher of
j “Lc Follel,” and all other efforts to get them have
i ■ failed. An attempt has been made to deceive the
■ I miblic, by rc-cngraviug the old designs, but these
i | duplicates are so far beneath the original Paris de
’ i signs sent to ‘Graham,’ that they excite only con
■ j tempt. Our arrangements are complete, and wo
i cannot be equalled iu the beauty and correctness of
’' this department of the Magazine. The plates ap
■ j pear in every number.

For §2O cash, eleven copies oi'the Magazine will

or others forwarding the money.
