Nonrly opposite the church of St. Sebald in Nuremburg stands an an cient inn, narrow and lofty, with an indented gable, small, dusty case ments, and tho roof surmounted by a 1 plaster imago of tho virgin..

Oue eve-, touches of the crayon wero all that ning as I was passing up stairs to my j was roquired. Hut these few touches, attic, Master llapp called after me : : try as I wouM, I could not give.

At length my "lla ' ha! I hnve caught you, mas eyes grew heavy and my thoughts ' ter painter," ho cried ; tell mo again confused, and I slept profoundly for some hours. About two o clock I awoke in a strange sort of exoitement having lighted my 'amp, I seized ' a piece of paper and n crayon, and arow a rapid sketch, in the Patch style, feeling all the time as if the composition was not mine, but as if each stroke was suggested by some one who merely used my hand and pencil as Unconscious and unresisting instruments. The sketch thfcs traced represented a gloomy court, surround- eJ hy lofty but cruublin walls, which were surroui uea uy large hooks at the heiirliUi of i oi sovea or cijriit leet from the ground. On the left was xreuiM oi ittuis. turouira wincu ono j saw an ox cut in quarters, suspended by s!roN jmlleys Irom ths roof of a 6hod. Streams of blood Honi ed across the jiavoitiont, and met in a trouch filuU with refuso niul rubbihh. At one end of the couit was a tart house, through tho open door of which wero eoen a pile of wood and sonio bundles of wrnw. l'letcs of rapjwl rope, an oia Ben-coop, ami a broken rabbit hutch lingered iu tho foreground. On the rie;ht, one co tter of the sketch re mained blank, I hesitated what to put there; something 'seemed to move, to hover uround it. (Suddenly u foot turned up and detached from the pround appeared to uiy mind's eye -Following the inspiration, I sketched on rapidly, and oeneath my crayon drew a log joiuud u a.. ct, t,an floating garment, at length the entire figure of an old woman, pale ematia ted, with disheveled hair, thrown down against tho low parapet of a well, and struggling aguimt a hand which clutched her throut. I wa9 drawing tho scene of a mur der ; tho crayou fell from my hand. I bhuddered as I looked at the wo man's face, contracted by terror, while both her hands eonvulsivoly grasped tho arm of her murderer, but his face, I saw it hot, it was hidden from mo as by some vailing shadow I could not finish the hketch. 'I am fatigued," I said, passing my hand over my damp f.'.rehead ; to morrow I will finish thfj debign ; there remains but that one riguro to put in." Hastily undrosMng, 1 went t bed, and beforo five minutes had elapsed, 1 was suuk iu a profound slumber. When I awok-i it was tmmd daylight. I hastened to dres.1, and wan prepar ing to rpsuruo my task, when 1 heard two knocl.s at tho door. "Come in !" The door opened and a tall old man dressed in black, stood at the threshold. " IlersJIeinorich Kaplf, tho paint er ?" saitrrie. At your service, sir." He bowed his head, ani said, in troducing himself: ''Ihirou Frederick von Spreikdahl." That tho rich amateur Vou Sprcck dahl, who was alno judge of the criminal tribunal, should condescend to visit my poor attic, was indeed an unlooked-for event. I cast an em barrassed glance at tho moan scanty furniture, tho low ceiling and the worm-eaten flooring ; but my visitor paid no attention to any of these de- ! piils. Pouting himself near mv small law.., - . . . ., t f ' come" i "At this moment his eyes fell on ! tho unfinished ekctch, nnd ho gazed 1 at it lixidly lor some moments. J "Are youthe author of this draw i ing?" ho nsk-d, looking nt me with the same attention which he had be stowed on my work. "I am, sir!" "What is its price ?" 'I do not sell my sketches ; it is merely a design for a painting. "Ah !" said he, taking up the pnper delicately with tho tips of his long sallow finders : and with tho aid i-f his eye-glass ho btudied tho sketch closely. A ray of sunshine entered oblique ly through the small dormer window. Von Snreckdahl's long nose became more hooked, nnd his thick eyebrows contracted, lending a fcinstcr expres sion to his lean, wrinkled face. The silence was so profound that I heard distinctly the plaintive buzzing of a fly caught in a spider's web. "And tho dimensions of this paint ing. Ilerr Kapf?" said ho at last, without looking up. "Four feet by three." "Its prico ?" "Fifty ducats." My visitor drew from his pocket a long, well-filled purse of green silk. "rilty ducats, ho repeated; "there they are." my amazement to utter a word of ble, brightened by the unwonted , gleam of cold, and resolved to finish Imrn tin tnnnov ! WKIl. III. .1' .......vj . Enrapod at the man's insolent look, and importune entrance," I suddenly soizod Iiint by the shoulders, and pushed him violently outside the door. The landing placo was very narrow; ho missed his footing, and rolled down several stairs, shouting as ho bumped song; "My money, you rascal my money P. Retreating into my room, I locked and double-lokcod the door, while burets of laughter front the Other lodgers saluted Uerr liar's downward prop;res. This little ad venture rouscu me ; i resumed my crayon, and was in the act of making another attempt on the impracticable corner of the bketch, when & clash of arms groundod on tho pavement op liosite caught my ear. I looked out of tho window, nnd saw several po licemen fully armed, atationed and keening guard outside. "Ihat old villain Itapn," I thought "can ho have met nny" serious inju ry?" Confused voices nnd heavy steps mounting tho stairs; my door was vi olently shaken. "In the namo of the law, open !" Trembling, though I scarcely knew why, I obeyed. Two muscular hands instantly grafted my collar, and a fat little nmu iu croon uniform, who smelt bfrongly of beer, canto close to me and 8aul : Ileinench Kantf. I ar rest vou." .w.Lt .,',. V T inn1on.il na I recognized tho chief of police. . ' "Come aloii?:," ho cried roughly, and made a feign to one of his men to handculF nie. Itesistance, of course, was useless, was ell'ectually secured, and con veyed down stairs by some of the par ty ; while tho others ransacked my room in every corner, iiroddinir mv furniture, and turning over on tho floor, my poor wardrobe and other scanty possessions. My captors thrust mo into a covered carriage, and two of them entered ultor me, ami took their places one at each side. "What have I done?' I inquired atrain. Hans, said ono of them to tho other, with a sour smile, "ho &k what ho has done !" Soon a dark shadow enveloped us, as the carnugo rolled under tho gloomy archway which leads to tho la.pel Jiaus, or city prison. Jho i'ailer, with a gray woolen cap on his load and a short iipe between his lijis, received ino from my conductors, and having silently introduced mo into a cell, locked und barred the door, and left mo to my rellet tons. Tho room was email, but tolerajdy clean, and tho walls being newly whitewashed preseuted no inscriptions or drawings, savo a rude sketch of a gibbet, probably executed by my pre decessor. It was lighted by a tamill wiudow, nino or ten foot from the ground, and tho furniture consisted of a bundle of straw and a bucket I seated mvself on the straw, and remained, 1 know not how long, plunged in a gloomy reverie. What if the fall down stuirs had itillictodJ some mortal injury on my landlord V Tho fellow wn a miser and insolent; but, after all, ho had done nothing to litcilt'Ht'mJ' tiu'iUW "M a J-wuvrh treat- ho upshot of it all ? While revolv ing this uncomfortable tiuestiou, the door grated on its hinges; my jailer appeared, and desired mo to follow him. Two turnkeys placed them selves one at oat h side of mo, and ws wulked on. We traversed gloomy corridors, feebly lighted by iuterior windows. 1 saw bvliiud one a noted robber and ussasin who was sen tenced to bo e.e uted on the follow ing morning. lie wore a straight waistcoat and was singing with a hoarse voice, " din tho King of thtte Jloioituim. As I passed, ho fehoutod after mo : "Ha ! comrade, I'll keep a place for you to-morrow on my right. The turnkeys looked at each other with a siuatcr smile, and my flesh crept with horror. 1 was conducted into a gloomy sort of judgement hall, at the upper end of which were seated two judges, ono of them being my lato visitor, Von Snreckdnhl. A clerk enndoved in tickling his ear with tho feather of his pen sat be lore a table. ' Von Spreckdtthl, raising his voice addressed me : "Heinrich Kapff, how did you bo- j come possed of this drawing ?" He showed mo the nocturnal sketch, I examined it nnd replied: "It was done by me." Thero was a silence, and tho clerk wrote down my reply. . , I thought within myself: "What Is tho meaning of this? What connec tion 'can tho sketch have with uiy pushing Rapn down stairs !" ' It was done by you,'' (repeated Von Spreckdtthl.' "What u the 'sub ject of it?" ' "It was a fancy (.ketch." "You have not copied the detail from nny painting or engraving ?' "Xo, sir, I invented them all." "l'risoner," said tho judge, in n se vere tono, "I advise you to reflect. lJo not lie.". I roddened with anger, and said emphatically : "I have fepoken tho truth." ."And this woman," continued he, Vwho is beiug assassinated at the edge of a well, have you imagined her fig uro also." "Certainly." "You never saw her ?" "Never." With an indignant jesturo, Von 8preckdahl rose from his chair, th-n resuming' Win seat,, ho ajqieared to consult in a low tono with his col league. "What can it be all about ? What have I done?" murmured I to myself, Addressing my guard's Vn yprek dahlsail: Conduct the prisoner to tho carriage. Wo- are gi ing to the Metzger Strass. , Heinrii h Kaptf," ho continued, "you are j ursuing n deplo rable path. Consider that if tho jus tice of men is inflexible, the morcy of God may yet b- -bti. ied by a full confession sf your ciiino." I could not reply ; I felt as if under the influence of home frightful dreum, and prepared to follow my guards in silence. Two policemen and T entered the carriage, which rolled along through several streets. One of my guards took out his, anuit-boi, and oftored a pinch ta hU companion. Mechani cally, I also extended my finger and thumb toward tho box, but its owner drew it back with a gesture of aver sion, and quickly replaced it in his pocket. I folt the hot tingling blood mount to my forehead, but before I could sneak the carriage stopped. Ono of the iMjlicemen got out, whilo the other held me fettered as 1 wus by thb x-i . conar, until, seeing in compauiou ready to recoivo me, he thrust mo rudely out. . All theso precautions to secure my person augured no good, but jut then I was given no time for reflection.- my guards hurried me along a narrow filthy alley, bounded by high walls, and through which trickled a fetid stream of eomo thick, dark liquid. Arrived at tho end, they opened a door, and pushed me before them in to a square court. During our pro gress, a strange horror had taken pos- . --! r-iti tint uncertainty and mystery oi my-position but rather like theellect ot night mdre. I seemed to bo walking iu u frightful dream, seeing and acting without my own volition, and under a haunting conviction of the unreality of all objects arouud. But this hor ror .became very tangible and real whon I looked around tho place whore I now found myself. Thero was tho very identical court . which I had drawn tho night before -the walli furnished with hooks, tho broken hen Coop, the rabbit hutch ; not a single detail, not oven tho most trifling, was wanting! Uesi Je tho Well stood the two judg es, Von Spreckdahl and liichter. At their feet lay the corpse of tho old wo man, her long gray hair dishevelled, her face livid her eyes protruding from her head, und her tongue pro truding from between her clenched teeth. It was a horrid s'ctacle. 'l'risoner 1" said Vou Spreckdahl in a solemn voice, "havo you got any thing to say ?" I made no answer. "Do you acknowledge that you throw this woman, Theresa lleeker, into this well, after having strangled her and taken possession of her mon ey?" "No!" I cried, "no.! I do not know this woman ; I never saw her until now. May God help mo I" "It is enough," said ho in a dry tone ; and then, without adding another word, ho and hia colleague took their depurturo. My guards conductod mo back to the 1'aspell Hans, and left mo alone in my coll. I fell into n profound stupor, and when but half "aroused from it, my conscience uwoko to a sort of morbid activity, and 1 begun sassinated tho old woman t All, tno honors of that nitrht in prison ! Seat- iVl on mv bundle of straw, 1 watched a moonbeam struggling through tho nanow window, and lighting up tho sinster outline of the gibbet ou the op posito wall. I heard tho watchman crying through tho silence of the night: "Sleep, inhabitants of Nurem berg; the Ivufd watches over you! Ono o'clock! Two o'clock! Three o'clock !" People say that it ia better to Buffer death a an innocent man than as a 'guilty one, and as regards tho tato of soul it certainly is ; but tho ioor injured body, suffering un- iustly. rebels, and its transports of recoiling horror at its undeserved, in evitable fate, aro terrible. Day dawned, and slowly lighted up my gloomy prison. Iho window looked on tlio s reet. It was a mar ket day. and I heard the rolling of the carts laden with fruit and vegetables, I could distinguish tho cackling of tho tho livo poultry, and tho animated ted discourse of tho butter women. As the moruinur advanced toe noise became gronUT, and the buzz and movement of lifo around me seemed to restore courage to my heart felt au irresistablo desire to hco what was going on around me, and to h!c once more on the faces of my fel- low men. My prodecssors in the coll, anima ted, no doubt, by a liko desire, had scooped holos in tho wall, to facilitate their mounting to tho window. I climbed up, nnd holding the bats, managed to seat myself on tho nar row ledge. Oace I gazod entranced on the crowd, tho life, tho movement: tears flowed down my cheeks; 'I folt au intense longing for life as lifo, sim ply to breathe, moo and feel the sun. "Ah I" I exclaimed, "to live only to live: Lfttlreni sentence mo to hard lalnir ; let them attach a weight to my leg. What does it matter pro vided only that I livo '." ' - The (puiint old market on which I looked tiered a gay and animated spectacle. The peasant women in their llavarian costumes wero Boated behiud their baskets of eggs, fruit, and vegetables, and thoir cages filled with poultry ; butchers with their na ked arms wero chopping moat on their blocks ; peasants with their largo brimod felt hats set far back on their heads, leaned on their stoat holly-sticks, nnd smoked their pipes Tho changing animated seno capti vated my attention, ami in spito of ino, distracted my thoughts from my sad situation- As I continued to gazo on the crowd, a butcher passed by, his Irack bent under the woigt of an enor mous quarter of beef which he bore on his shoulners. His arms wero bare, his uIIhiws raised, nnd his head bent down down in front. Ilia hair fall ing down in a measure concealed his face, and yet at tho first glance I shud dered. "It is he I" 1 exclaimed! in wardly. All my blood flew back to my hoart. I leaped from the window down into my prison, flavoring, my teeth chat tering, whilo my rebellious blood flowed back ngain, nnd mounted hot ly to my cheeks nnd forehead. "It is hot IIo is thero thnt und I 1 crnst dio to exniato hia criruo t 0 my God", hlep me 1 What arrt I to do?" ' , . A sudden idea, an inspiration, m I i believe from heaven darted tlnough my mind.

Tho Jailer went out, and in n frw minutes tho two Judges appeared. with my hand extended, and treriib bling, I sa;d to them : "Behold thu assasasin !'' , Von Spr.ockdahl carefully nnd quietly examined the sketch. "II U name?" he enquired. "I know it not," I replied : "Cut nt this moment he is in tho market, cut ting up meat at the third stall on tL. left, as you enter from th Trabantcn trasso " . , ; . ' i "What do j-on adviao ?" , said my Judge to his coleague. "That wo should instantly scud for the man," replied he in a grnvu tonH.
