At length the third day had dawned
without his having been iiblo to advance
au in.li fnnher touardsn solution, and he
was t roll imf wully in one of bis broud
alley., vainly trying lo hit on some means
of vuding ihe king's threats, when he
met the miller who wtis Lringing some

The latter, n cunning fellrw. always in

lord, and inquired ulier Ins henlih, when

Faith, my lord abbot," "aid the miller,
after having listened lo him most atten

"Iwi-h you were, Cuichard," replied
the abbot. Vhy, you would soon give

The miih r put it on. and.rt the hour
appointed blood in the king's presence.
The king did not recognize the abbot nt
firx, but .concluded that anxiety had
changed him, and inwardly, rejoiced at
having di privi d him of the right lo the
nickname of the Abbot Sans Souci. So
he ordered him to approach, iu a less ter
rible lone than might have been i xpected,
and asked him if he could tell him exact

"Very ea-ily, sire," answered die mil
ler. "Ihil as ' U have ou'y asked about

awny all the ros. Hones, and metal, to
set about making the exact measure."
The king I it his lips on perceiviug that
the question hud not been nut properly
So he went on to the second query, and
asked how much the Moon weighed.
It must weigh exactly a pound," said
the miller, 1 as it has four quarters."
This time the king smiled, and all the
courtiers laughed aloud. The third ques
tion was now inquired into, and the mil
ler summoned to state what the Ling was
" 1 value him at twenty-nine farthings,"
replied he, quietly. " Nor ran hi maj

An Indian Legend.
Tho following Indian legend, relative
to tho spirit home of Washington, is ex
tracted Irom Morgan a League of the
Iroquois. It is curious, as showing tho
estimation iu which the father of lis
Country was held by this singular peo
ple, and thei id. a of future felicity:
Among the modern beliefs engrafted up
on the ancient faith f the Iroquois, there
is one which is w Tt'.iy of particular notice.
It relates to Washington. Accordiog to
their present belief uo while man ever
reached the Indian heaven. Not being
muted ly the Li rent Spirit, no provision
was made for him in their schemes of
theology, lie wus excluded both from
heaven and the pluce of punishment.
Jtut on exception was made in favor of
Washington, liecause of bis justice and
ben voh'iice lo Ihe Indian, he stood pre
eminent ubove all other white men. Wnen
in the year 1783, the Indians were aban
doned by the r lirilish allies, and left to
make their owu terms w ith the American
Lioveriiineut, the Iroquois were more ex-
losed to severe measures than the other
tribe in their alliance At this critical
moment Washington interfered in their
behuP, as the protector of Indian rights
and the advocate of a policy then'of the
mewl eiilihtened justice aud humanity.
After his death he was inAurjied by the
Iroquois as a benefactor of their race, and
his memory was cherished wftll reverence
aud o Met lion. A belief was sp read among
them that the Great Spirit had received,
in a celestial residence upon the plains of
tieaven, the only white man whoce deeds
had entitled hiiu to the heavenly faror.
Just at the entrance of heaven is a wall
enclosure, the ample grounds of which
are laid wiih avenues and shaded walks.
Within is a spacious mansion, constructed
in the shape of a fort. Every object that
could plea.e a cultivated taste render it a
hnppy dwelli: g place for the imonl
W o.-hington. The faithful Indian a he
enters heaven, passes the enclosure-. He
s es the illustrious inmate as he walks to
and fro in quia ineditatinn. ' Hot no word
passes his lips. ' Dressed in his uniform,
in a perfect state of felicity, he is des
tined to remain through ' eternity in the
solitary enjoyment of the celestial resi-
