SELECT STORY. , THE PRIEST'S STRATAGEM. , The greata fficfency of the French police ystem, as at present in operation, : and 1 1 ' T 1 asjt was auntifr me firsi ian(iieon. is too well known to need .comment here ; yet one may' otcasiobaily happen "Upon unrecorded incidents which thoroughly -if ted ,.niake it still : mor.9 , evident, Of ftich a character is -the incident'; we, an; now about to relate. . ( It appears that one dark , and stormy day as a (rood old prelate, Denj irian Ijy han'ie. wa? hastenino:" runmiij,' alonir ;he Rue La B-Tiandine, . wrapped j-nuly: in his hu?e capiichin,. he w.is accosied Middenly .by..a tall, etronsly I nut m i;, habited in'a h'ue i;Ioal and loociu d hit . which completely concealed his face- H had alighted from a small, ch covered t ab. which drew op to thje walk, judV a- the prelate, was passingr. Siiigular as the-;e proceedings may appear, they would hare excited little or uo wonder in his mind at the time, for such mysterious' proceedings; were . then an every day occurrence; were it not that his attention wasdrawn more particularly thereto by the mysterious person, who placed himself directly, before him saying: "You are father Gagnice, I believe'' 'I am, my son'; what would you have of me?".' returned the worthy prelate, starting with surprise. .' . , . "I have come father, a great '.distance to find youfand I now wish you to enter my cab and go with rhe." " ' ' 'G with you. Where and for what?" "To attend the death bed of a friend, who wishes the sacrament administered, before departing rorn this -life.'' l . "Lead on,' then, hiy man ;' I will accom pany yoti; lead" on."" - ' The worthy prelate was -never tardy in the discharge of the duties of bia holy prder. . , ; : ; "Thanlf you, father ; but first you must permit me. to blindfold you!" But l'li permit "'nothing' of the kind, mv son," returned the old man, whose suspicions were now becorainar aroused. "But I say you must.. most holy father"' was iheeep, deiermined reply. ' T niust not. nor will not!' , "You must.5 and will or die! For, ' if you refuse, and resist me. I will kill ypu! said the man. while drawing- a small dirk from his cloak. Our worthy friend, the prelate, was now thoroughly alarmed, but' he tried hard to conceal this, by calmly inrjuirinr. But why all this mystery, ray son? Why this disguise?" '- - 4T have no time, now, father, to ex plain, even if I would ; bu you shall learn.all in good time. And fataer, to qciet your fears for I see. you are ter rified I do most solemuly swear, upon me cro;3 or your rosary, . uni. no narm sn1 CQrne t9 you provided yon dfe 'dis- . - ir . - creet. There, now,- come. Haste, for " "Then, lead on; Ell go and submit to be blindfolded, too." : ' .This way, then, to the cab." ... Saying which, the stranger hastily led the old man to the vehicle, shoved .him in, then entering himself, closed the door, and fastening it cn the insidegave the word to the driver, and away they : went. - "Now father," continued he," hold your head down ;" with which' he drew from his pocket a handkerchief, folded it neatly upon his knee; and bound it firmly over theciosed eyes of the old man, who submitted to all in perfect silence; and then again the stranger spoke : "And now, most holy father, you must submit to another indignity if so you call u'" .:' "And what is that, my son?" ."This. You must swear that you will never divulge one word, look, cr gesture you may see or hear during your present adventure. Po you understand and con sent?" ' ' ' : - "I do, but will not. I am willing to compiy with everything I conceive to be essential to the happiness of my children; out in this I neither see reason nor nec essity, and therefore prefer to use my own discretion in the matter-" : "But you have no choice, father, in this case?" ' . ' ;'I will exercise one, nevertheless " "I mean," returned' tha "stranger, in the same deep determined tone of voice, "If you insist on my being more explicit, that I will not permit you to exercise any choice!" "But I will, in this respect, for in these matters'I am not only accountable to my God, but also to my church, my son." With this, the stranger paused for a while, as if in deep thought, and then, as if haying, come to some definite resolve, replied : - "Well, well, I suppose in this matter you may have your ovyn way ; but if you dare divulge a word out side of your sinctuary, ,you die! Do you hear, most holy father?". I do." "And, further, even if you do, it will avail you naught, for these very precau t;ons will render you harmless. "True, true," muttered the old man ; with which both relapsed into silence, while the carriage went rumbling aud rolling along- The rain still came down in torrents, while ever and anon a deep peal of .thunder made everything trembir again. "All thirgs temporal must have an end." thought the padre, '4and so must this ride eyentually." At this moment, and as if in confirma tion of his soliloquy.-th carriage did stop but where be was, of course, quite unable to judje. ' 'Prepare to alight, father," said the stianger. ' - -" 'T am ready my, son." . "Come, then." .... Saying which 'the stranger, still hood ed took the priest by the arm, and thus helped him to descend ; ithen led hun across the- stone pavd walk, by whic: our friend (who wa? now keenly alive u every sigh that would indicate hi$ where ab- u'j) Ht once ctjectur-d that he wa yr-i within th -f recincts of Pari- and h was right; ihendi t;p a hug p:tir of s,U)n sieps, 'hen through a duor whic i wu imnie.iiaN'ly clo-ed by the perauu vvh admitted them. No hi nor further pa?-ed between the'm as thny !hu went hi and out, up and down through the hou-e, till presently they halted before a-. door, 'and.iu.alow voiee ti e stranger said: "I am now about to admit y-u to th presence of the invalid. When you he,r the door shut, take off the bandage: when you get through, ring the little bell you will find on the table, and I w. 11 come Now, father go in;" sayinz .which.-the mask opened the door, showed our oh friend in, and then hastily, but safely closed it ar.d was gone. ' Now comes the singular part; of, our story. No sooner did the pri-st find that the door was closed, than he hastily slipped the handkerchief off", and attempt ed to gaze around, but the effect of th light was too powerful for a few seconds and he 'was compelled to cover them again; out of sheer pain. -Gradually, however, his eyes became accustomed to natural light, and they opened wide in indeed with surprise.' when thy ' bt-held the splender of ths apartment he was in The furniture and decorations were of the most superb and cosily kind, whil the most refined ta.-te,and .strupu'oi Care was manifested in the order and arrangement of each aod every arti -le. Presently his gaze turned to a pi' of the room he had not examined, an as he naturally enoujh supposed, there stood a splendid t-b cy wwd b-. d iad. inlaid with pearl, aud covered : wi h a couDterpine of white silk of th- m jsi elaborate- m inurac'ure, beneath whnh between heets cf the. fioi st linen wi h head bolstered up with pillows of down, reclined the form of aa-fair a crea ure as had ever delighted the old man's caze. She bent upon hun a long and ' pen ive glance, which appealed tit once to the old prelate's heart; but finding at length that she did not intend to speak first, he lightly approached her side, saying, in subdued tone ' Madam. I am the priest, com? to con- - fess you, and give you absolution, through j the mercy of Jes Christ, and bis aptle Peter. Madam, are y.vu ready ccri tinu?d h e, wnii? cenatng upon hr a it i i looked of -mingled surprise and pnetra hun i' but .-you .ure!y are. .no: going to die; it must b- a mistake you ?t:il ttsr the bloom of heaiiii in your chetk, yyur eyes still glisten and you now smile, as z ivor smiled a being on death-pad b eiore. ' "Acd yet father," replied eh 5 ia the ted, ''aod yet I am now on the ery verge cf the grave!" "Impossible! I have beheli hundreds cn the verge of the grave, but never be fore one like you. Why, your. voice, madam, so sweet and clearso strong, belies the supposition." "And yet rr.y words are trse.' "Ab!" mu;tered our old friend, to him self, while a smile of gratification for an instant illumed his countenance .doubt lessly, fhe is a hypochondriac. She is a fit object for the physician, cot for the priest. Then turning to her he continued aloud "Madam, is it your determination that I shall confess you?". "Such is my resolve, father, though heaven and my conscience know, I have but little to confess let the world say what it may father, I see by your look of surprise your kindly solicitude, that that you oh! you are not are you?" "Not what, daughter not what?" and the padre began to look slightly alarmed. "Yes yes, I am certain, you are an ac complice of of my kinsmen?" . "'"Accomplice?", . "lea yes, yea know, nothing of this you are not an accomplice?" "Madam, you mystify me very much your mind is evidently disordered I must depart this is no place for me;" and he started toward the bell. "Oh, no, no,! In the name of heaven I implore yoo. stay. If you have any in ircy, do not ring that bell! do not leave nte?" "Madam, your manner is most incom prehensible! What do you mean? I am led to believe you mad; and yet your language and manner are ratio." "Mad? Mon! Dieu! I wonder that I am "not. No, no, I am not mad! father, sware to me that you art not an accomp lice of my kiusmao." It must be understood, that all this dialogue was carried on in a low, sub dred voice, not much above a whisper, through excited aud anirnated in the extreame; and it was as much wi.h the design of assuming a more easy position for he had been bending over the bed all the while as it was to enable him to hear better, that the prelate scfily drew a chair to her side and seated himself while saying: "Diughter, there is evidehtly some my?tery here, and I would fathom it. Now in the first place who is this kias uiiii you speak of? he wearing the cloak? Speik and fear not." "Yes ,'us he " vv rut a cash ljis at U!iij.M h-o vl li i '0;i! do you tpeak and . she bent upon him a glance of such deep sup plication, that his heart was touched. "Daughter, believe me. My words are ihn words of truth!" - "Oh! God, I thank thee father can you save mel See, I am young, too young, .oj young to die." 'Willingly, if it is in my power; but, you torget. I am perfectly iguorant of n.'ur siuatioa. Now, if you would be more expocit." "I will vou shall know all look!" Up to this tune it j-hould be remembered, he had nrtn.iiutd closely covered up to the ni-ck by the counterpane; but now as fhr- spoke, she violently threw tbe cover from her but half-robed person?, and bare arms, one cf which she held up to hi stalled gaze, pointing the while, with the trrmbl.ng hand of the other, to a bloody dyed bandage that encircled it just above the elbow. 'Look! Do you see that, father? From that would my precious life Is to pour out by that, means I am to die!" "Are you frantic woman? What do you m-a;f "Listen! disturb me cot and you shall hear all. You shall doubtlessly judge iy all this tplendor you see in these apartemens, that I am one of the so-call ed roy alists, or nobility cf France, recall ed by an edict of the prs;ent Emperor and rigtnly too, for I am further, jqu are aare. that there La3 lately been several attempts made by our party to assassinate the ijinperor, or at least; such is the report. Also, that it is sus pected, that even at this moment there are several secret societies of conspirat ors, now dotting for the same object. Well, it is because I chanced to discover the dastardly proposes of one of these depicable cliques, and betrayed that kngwh dge to the proper source, that I am now iioomed to euifer this death." Oa. impossible!" "Nay, say not father, for such Is the truth.' Bat how then is it possible then that you have been prevailed upon to betray your people, and your own interest eo much?" and the old mon looked incred uluus. "Truly, it does seem improbable, and 1 must tell all." "Certainly!" and he looked, as he was, gratified at the prospect cf having hi-, suspicions proven fale. 'Yes, 1 will even tell you that," com. tained she. while a faint blush for an in stant sutfused hir fair cheek. "Ti? thus: thoughs born, as I have said, a royalist. 1 am one no longer at heart; tor l'jved, and he uhcuaught me to love taught me al?o to love liberty b ler than a a in pot u vain pomp and display or! de fer he is cue of the people ah sful;eu'enan', i the irmy ol h'Jiiir 1-; I was. my I jve fur him lhi; f r inp.cd m- to .d;vuig.; -a Sruiet .wiuj'i : ,i i i , vulvas tt;aa uno,- urgca cn by a revenge, and I fear, aho.'a hop 2 ta thus claim all I possess cn earth, in ccm piny with his associates, sat in judgment on my declared crime, and doomed r.3 to be bled to death?" .' . : '.1 . ; '"Most horrible! -Eat hare yen na par ents, brothers, or family to interpose, and save you?"

Li?t?n, it Was thus; "They had commenced their hellish deed," attended by a fiendish phy sician, who even bled me till I fainted, when the flow was stepped, and I revived ; but, during that fainting spell, the spirit of my mother appeared to ma and charg ed me to be composed, for in that by my salvation. I did not understand it then, but I do now, for I then thought she ment my spiritual salvation, whreas it now proves, she meant my life. How ever. 'jpon recovering, I requested that a confessor might be sent for. They all at once abruptly objected, till at length I melted their hard heaua, though ap parently a republican, and after much be bate concluded to send for you. My brother then departed, and you came." "Most wonderful! ' "You are here . father, by the direct interposition nf Providence to save me will you do it ?" . "l'will!" exclaimed our friend, with marked emphasis, for he now felt that ha was realy an instrument in the hands of God. "If yea can but succeed n dehy their hellish work one half hour, you shall be saved. Bat did they not make you swear not to reveal aught to me ?" "They did; but on this question of life, I deemed such perjury no sin." "It is not, and I abslve you.

' and the old man mused for a while wi'h serious as pect, but at length he exclaimed "1 have it 1 have it: uica: give ra a niece of the blood stained ban dage about your arm there, quick! And with eager. hand he drew out a penknife from beneath his robes, and cut o3f a piece, saying, in his hurried tones, "No.v uo you manage, while I am. gone, to defer their operations for half an hour just one half hour and you are saved". As ha. ceased he replaced Lis knifo, put the bondage over his . eyes but- fix..-J it 50 .he cojld see a little in advance hu path; then- crushing the' bloody bandage close with his hand,' which was thea ihiust under his cloak, he took, Li3 pos ition by the table, ard saying, "Take courage daughter, you shall ts saved!" he rang the bell. The toor instantly opened, and in stalked the mask ed stranger. " Arc you done, father?" said he. "I have, my son; she has confessed." "Well and good. There is me pay lor your trouble." Saying which he placed a purse, weigh ing heavy cf gold into the pries's hand, and then led him down several ot stairs, through halls", round turning, till suddenly .the priest beheld the light of the hill entrance glancing through oa the floor at his feet. Seeing thia he slightly elevated his head that he might see the door in advance. " At a glance he saw that it was large; ; massive, with small fluted columns each side between it and the .wall. This was just as he expected, acd, just as he wanted it, as will te seen; tor as be reached the door, which was opened, as before, by a servant in livery, who stood at one si and behind, a wi. the custom, to let thera pas3, he . suddenly pretended to slip and fell forward, and by this mean3 forced his conductor ahead of him, at the same time ca'chuig tor the doorcase, so if 10 stop his fall .ucc.eda l ia slipping the blood-stained bandago be tween it and the side-pillar without being observed. Excusing his awkwardness, he grasped bis conductor's arm again, and passed out to the cab, isto. which both then seated themselves, and ouce more they were driven rapidly along. "At what place would yea prefer to be set down!" inquired the stranger. "At the barricade St. Antoiae." "It shall be so. By the-by most holy father, was the fair lady meek and pen itent?" "Seek not to know the secrete cf church my sea." "Ha! ha! No delicate amours, father?" "My sea, ycur haguige is tacrelig ious."
