She was, p;rhap eighteen ; she could
not be over twenty, and yet, had it no
been for an air of wcmiuly dignity, she
migby hare passed for a girl of sixteeu
"What can detain him?" she asked, at
length, shading bn-r ej'es with her hand,
and .gazing anxiously from ihe door.
The words had scaicely been spoken!
before a figure emerged from the wood
up the road, and with a glad smile she
was rushing forward a pace cr two to
meet ihe comer, when suddenly she turn-
ed as pal as death, an I scarcely pjicu- 1
she turned back j

The character cf her approauhicg
visitor e?fcily explained her emotioa.
The refugees were at that time the brijr-
and? of the country. Taking advantage j refugee gazed upon her for a mcrneut,
of the turmoil of the times, and of the j aad then, with a curse, called his men to

Of th &e men, Dtvid Rowel, or, as
lie was lannliarly called, from his co.u
plnion, "Biack: Davy," was the most no
torious. Sumetunes moving al.ms, and
sr.inetunes accompained by others, but
always marking his track with same out
rage, he had gained for himself a noto
net)' as widespread as it was terrible.
It wa the tight of this individual which
becked the steps of the young girl, and
-? drove her trembliug to seek refuge in
But her fear, it seemed, oon vanished.
She had fct-arcrly pas-d the threshold
brfure, as if aciuatr-d by a sudden reso
lution, she hastily turned back, and wiik
nu unhi u.kitjy face, though a beating
fieart, confronted the refugee. What
ever was her motive, her tearless d--iiieauor
daunted him. He stepped, and
'What want you what would you
have, sir ? why do you jeek a lonely
house like this at udi an hour ?" akc-U
the girl, wuh fla-hing eyes.
The abashed iefu,ee had by this tim
recuvereJ his fohdrrni e, nd, with an
e:t.-y air, whivtied aloud, and then he
ansuered the girl :
"Not so fast, mistress, not so fast ; wt

tail, paswd into the house. The young !
wile tor such she was gazd alter

mnrniured a thanksgiving that her hus
band hd not yet come.
Ir. about a o,uarier of an hcur the men
returned, and. sw earing louoly at their
ii!-suiress, began to starch for the mast
er of the place among th? few outhouses.
But their efforts were in vain. The
j young wife, im anvvhiie, though betray
ing no signs cf fear, stood there scarce Jv
knewing wutether the enraged rt:fliaus
would not the next mom en', take her life.
"Tins is too bad !" said the leader,
uth an oath, after their unsuccessful
seaich; "he will certainly be here sot;ie
nuie to-nigh. Let us wail for the ras
cally tebel and shoot him down on his
uwtj thieshold !"
This brutal proposition just suited his
desperate followers, and taking up their
quarters withiu. ordered the Yuut.g wife
to prepare du m some supper. Though
b.a hing the .-i'ht of her tormentor, and
trembling continually lest her . husband
should ti rive, she was forced io obey
liie r commands. She coiitinotd, how-

For an instant the husband paused.
He saw at a glance the situatiou of affairs,
and though it was agony to leave bus
wife in such hands. lie kunw it would be
certain death to appr oach tie house. j
His firm whig principles had made the !
refugees and Tories his political enemies, .

than Once sworn to take away his life.
His onlyTiope, therefore, wa in a pre-

almost certain, for deds of tht charac

present leader of the refugees'. These
rrptd thoughts ctiused a momentary de-:

turned, having baffled his pursuers. " Lan

perceiving the condition of his wife. A

The stars were faint and few that
night, as the bold farmer, extorting from
the kind neighbor a premise of secrecy,
stole out into the air, armed with hi
trusty piece, and, after looking for a mo
ment at the sky abuve. struck boldly ac
croas the forest, in lss than an hour
he had visited two farmhouses, and ob
tained three neighbors to aid him in his
design. Striking right into the bean
cf the forest, they puhed on fur several
hours, apparently without fatigue, and
almost m silence. At Idiigih he came to

"Their haunt is somewhere, here, I
have learned," said the husband. ' I

"We have found them! Lie close,
now, and wait till they come up.7'
The group instantly lapsed into silence,
and each of them taking up a position
behind a large tree, or gome fallen irunk
waned breathlessly for the approach of
the comers, whose tread miht now be
heard increasing in distinctness wpry
moment. Directly afterwards voices
were recognised, conversing in a care
less tone ; then a loud laugh rang in the
night air. and. after a momentary silence,
one of the approaching gang burst into a
'Now is cur tire," whisfered the
husband to one of his companions ;
take the right-hand manand leave the
Itader to me. Ready fire !"
The report of the nnVs echoed sharp
ly through the woods, and three of jhe
refugees, leaping into the air, fell dead
upon the gtouiid. The husband's guu
flashed in the pan, but did not go off.
The captain of the ruffians was unhurt.
Sprmgiig back a few steps f r r, ihe
covert, where his assailants lay conceal
ed, he shouted :
"We are betrayed ! Ve mptt run
for it, my boys !"
And before the enraged pursuers
could well understand his intention
he had turned and fled, followed by
thpse of hi. band wfio still remained be
hind It was. however. m time ftr hes
itation. The baSet4 husband wts Jthe
first todath from his covert, and, without
pausiig to see whether the fallen men
were reaby dead, he thundered :
"Foiward ! forward! pursue item to
ti e death !"
As he spoke he dashed off in pursuit.
His enmpanions hesiia'ed a motn-nt, ard
hen followed hi? example. Three of
the refugees had escaped, bui there were
four iu pursuit. Fear reemed, however, j
to have seized upon them, else why
should they have retreated before a force
so litile exceeding their own? It is
probable ihat they imagined ajar greater j

had been overtaken and ain. The ea-
fercesi of the husband had cutftriped
the pi ace of his companions, ai.d after
i pursuit of msny hours' duration, he was
now on the point of coming up with him.
The rapd steps of the two men, pur
suing and pursued, brought the latter to
the edge of the abrutt hill before he was
aware of it, and he saw at a glance that
further flight was impossible. He turn
ed and beheld only one foe in siht ; he
could hear the bhouisjf the others far
behind ipthe forest, and he resolved to
'grapple with the foremost pursuer, and
by destroying him. eiTect his escape be
fire the others came up. He turned at
bay. The rifles cf both tne combatants
had been discharged in the pursuit, and
they now stood face to face, with no oth
er weapons than their hunting-knives.
all their mutual, hate sparkling ia their
"Villian! murderer! traitor!' hoarse
ly ejaculated the husband, pale with pas
sion, as he darted at the refugee.
The outlaw made no answer, but
scowled a mortal defiance at his foe, and,
drawing his knife, awaited ihe eulaughi.
And it was terrible. For a few mo
ments so incessantly were their thrusts
mutually parried, that ihe eyes could not
follow the motions of the Court atants.
Now one, how the other seemed to have
the advantage. The dry loaves flew in
showers around the contending foes, and
ihe dust rose in ch-iuU, often hiding them
from sight. Not a word was spoken by
eiihr-r. At length after a few slipht
wounds ou both sides, at a desperate
trust made by the husband, his knife
.-truck against the iron buckle of his an
tagonist, and was shivered to pieces.
The refugee saw his advantage, and
raised his knife to strike. As a last
hope hi pursuer grasped his wrist. A
r.-'perate struggle ensued'; both were
men vi great personal strength, but the
outlaw having received a wound ia his
right arm was perhaps the weaker of.the
two. After a protracted struggle he
yielded, and in a fierce fTet made by
the husband to obtain the kmf. it flew
from Black Davy's hand to the distance
of some yards.
By this time they had been impercep
tibly drawn to the very edge of the hill,
where a ruggtd precipice of some fifty
feet shct perp-niiicularly down beneath
ih-m. Gathering every energy for his
iast endeavor, the pursuing husband
strove to force ihe ouilaw over the prec
ipice, and had partially succeeded in do
ing so, when he felt the gravt-lly bank
giving away beneath them. With one
iHind he lustily grasped a twig, and with
the other, making a gigantic effort, he
ihru-t hts autag cist ever the precipice,
so that ti.e outlaw dangled in the air,
having no other aupport but the hold he
kept upon the left arm of his adver
sary. All hop;? for ihe refugee was over,
but he determined that his foe should
perish with him.
Moments passed away, at every one of
which the bank gave way more and j
more. The utmost efforts, of the victor
to shake effthe dying man were in vein.
and he felt that his last hour had come, j !
, . , , ...
He heard no more even the hcuts of his
friends, and, with a sickening sensation, ;
he felt they had either lot their way or
deserted him. Could they only have
come up he might have been saved. He
felt the twig begin to yield ; he had al
ready slipped half off the bank, and the
struggles of the dying man were becom
ing more de-perate every moment. He j
guzed al ibe gulf below. Broken limbs
of irees and uprooted pines lay min
plrd promiscuously togthe.-.,sO that to fall
into the abys would be certain destruc
tion. The countenance of the outlaw al
ready wore a dtrncnital fn.ile in contem
plation cf ihe ruiu to which he was ding
ginsr the young man.
And that bridegroom, 'was there hope ;
for him? Alas! alt was gone! He j
gave oqp thouthi of his bride, one look j
towards hf aven, a pra er to Gcd. and !

: Eq., Secretary and General Superin

the absolute electoral perfection of the)
cable, now being made, states the amount
completed up to the COth of December at :
750 miles. The cable is dow being
made at the rate of eighty miles per ;
week. Without hurry and without night
work. It will be finished by the end of
the first of June. Two tank3 are on
board the Great Eastern for storing the

There is no racn to doubt that the ca-
ble will be on board and the great slip
ready for sea, with everything in the best
order, during the month of June. Mr.
Seward has no doubt that the cable will
be successfully laid and worked.
