Who that hus ever kept his twelfth of August on the northern moors could fail to be reminded by them of some bright-eyed Highland las sie whom ho has met at curly dawn of day crossing the mountain stream barefoot, with her plaid thrown over her fair huir, and her clear voice singing out an old sweet ballad of her native land; or haply, if ho has had nn entree to the honirs of the Scottish aris tocracy, they will bring before him some yet fairer picture of a pure pale face, where eyes of n blue, tender us the morning sky, spoke of a noble uud truthful soul within; und he lias learned to lovo the race that once had such deadly funds wfth his Saxon ancestry, becuuse of tho "glumoitr" cast n round him by tho golden-haired daughters of the land. Hut very different is the real picture of that Scottish maiden of whom we arc about to speak; nor Was she any vision of the fan cy, but a terrible-reality, whom all men knew nnd feared throughout broad Scot land, two hundred years ago. A dark and stern lady was she truly, and one who brooked no rivals for they whom she once tmibnieed wcro never clasped to mortal heart again; nnd the lovers whom she pil lowed on her bosom slept a slue) that knew no waking. Tew there were, even of the bravest, who did not shudder somewhat as they saw her keeping her unchanging watch through storm and sunshine, beneath the shadow of old St. Giles, the principal church of the northern capital ; and oftentimes, when they saw how the ground beneath her feet was stained witii blood they muttered curses on the "loathly maiden," that had none io ileum so many a giinnni dcoi.-jsJ Yet to some, this easily lady (which wasN none other than tho public guillotine) ap peared to have attractions, such as many a bright-eyed damsel might have envied; for it is recorded of the noble Marquis of Ar gyle, the last who died in her embrace, when our story commences, that ho ran ea gerly up the steps, and exclaimed ns he laid his head upon the block, " This is the sweet est maiden I huvo ever kissed." This say bur nf his was often rited nnd tlm world wondered what hidden pang had so darkl ened lire for the gailant noble, whose hom age was courted by the fairest ladies, that hu should die with words of such bitter moaning on his lips; but when, some yenrs later, the maiden pressed with her cold hand tho throat of him who proved to be her latest victim, the strange and tragic circumstances of his death obliterated all recollections of the marquis and his -dying words. It happened, singularly enough, however, that these two, the Lord of Argyle and ICcnelm Hamilton, who succeeded him on the block, had been in life the deadliest en emies; and by a peculiar chain of circum stances, which we will now proceed to de tail, the death of the ono caused that of the other. It was about a month after the execu tion of the marquis that Hamilton, whose race, so closely allied to the kings of Scot land, was even prouder thnn Argyle's, found himself compelled, by political busi ness, to pass a night in the little town of Inverary, close to which stood the castle of the same name, which had been the heritage of his dead rival. Never, perhaps, did any one approach that beautiful spot with greater ill-will than Kenelm Hamilton; he was a young man of peculiarly fiery and impetuous disposition, of whom it was often said that his love and lik hatred wcro alike to be dreaded, so ar dent and pas.sion.ito was he in either ; he was the second son of the noble family of Hamiltons, between whom and the Ar gyle there had been a deadly feud for .many generation past. "ever, however, had it burnt raoro fiercely than in the time we write, when the families had been repre sented by the marquis who had just been compelled to lay his lofty head at the maid en' feet, and kenelm, with his wild and angry temper; for his elder brother was an idiot, who bore the family title, but lacked the wit to defend their honor when assailed. Deep had been the hate between Argyle and Hamilton, which even the new-shed blood of the former had not availed to quench; for, in addition to the old clan fend, there was a quarrel between them which had fearfully embittered their traditionary hatred. The Marqni of Argyle had been betrothed almost from boyhood to his cous in, the Lady Ellen Graham, and although their engagement had been a matter of fam ily arrangement, he loved her well and truly. Lut not so the lady, however. She had not been consulted when she wm bound, while yet a child, to the marquis, and with the true feminine spirit of contradiction, she r?o!ved to chco3f for herself, and aecrt j thooddresse of Kenelm Hamilton, who, "Here, Elspcth," said Campbell uddross by some unlucky 'chnncc, liud fullen in love ing the ilnro in tho bronil Scotch of those witli his rival' bride. duys, which we will not attempt to repro- Their wedding was even now fixed to duce; "hero is a gcntlemnn cold and bun tuko place In a few months, and this cir-j pry; come and see what you can find for ctimsUnco, flo doubt, explained the lust j his supper." words of Argyle, which wcro destined to Huiuiltonlistcncil anxiously for the sound be cveu tho nicuns of one day bringing his enemy to the arms of tho sumo cruel maid en, whom ho himself had embraced witli so much fervor. And now tho recollection of that last bloody scene was, doubtless, heavy on the heart of poor Hamilton as ho rode down tho mountuin path wuich led to In verury Castle, and the little villugo which lay at its foot. It was a cold and gloomy night; tho durkness was intense, and the wild north wind went shrieking and howling through the pass as if it bore upon its wings the souls of those who had expired in some great agony, while tho dark Scotch firs stood up liko specters among tho bleak grey rocks. Truly, it was an evening on which the stoutest heart might gladly seek a shel ter, and Hamilton was fain, though solely against his will, to rest in tho domains of his enemies. This had been no part of his intention when he set out on his journey; he hud then been accompanied by two of his retainers, and he designed to have passed at a little distance from Inverary early in the day, and to have lodged for the night in a castle at some distance, and bclonginir, ton kinsman of his own; but, unhappily, that morning one of his guides had been thrown from his horse nnd injured so se verely that his lilo was despaired of. Some hours wcro spent in conveying tho wounded man to a resting place; and Hamilton, whose mission udinitted of no delay, was obliged to leave him in charge of his com rade and push on his road, although the short December day was already closing iti when lie started again. He rode us rapidly as he could, but the durkness soon became so impenetrable that ho repeatedly lost Ins way; and when, at lust, the lights of Inverary gleamed through tho driving mist and rain, he felt that it had become a matter of necessity thnt he should rest there for the night, as his jaded horse was stumbling ut every step from sheer fatigue. In these turbulent tunes, when every man s hand was against his fellow, there would have been considerable risk in a Hamilton venturing into Inverary, nnd es pecially this particular Hamilton, had he been known; but Kenelm trusted that the darkness of tho night would prevent his being seen by any ono but tho landlord of the inn where ho meant to sleep, to whom he was personally unknown, and who would not be likely to suspect that a solitary horseman, unattended by a single retainer, could bear so proud a name. In this supposition he was proved to have judged rightly. Kenelm rode unmo lested und entirely unobserved through the little town, the streets of which were in fact almost deserted; ns the tempestuous weather had driven all the inhabitants into their houses, nnd he saw to his great satis faction, that even tho door of tho inn was shut a sufiicient proof that no guests were expected at the " Argylo Arms " that night. The landlord, a Campbell, of course, and as sturdy a Scot ns ono would wish to see, himself came to the door to welcome tho stranger, nnd after sending his tired horse to the stable, ho ushered him into the huge stone kitchen, briefly remarking thnt he must be content with such cheer as the fam ily provisions could afford, for that he little expected any visitor on a night so " mi canny." ll umiltnn assured him thnt he was not disposed to be fastidious, and having thrown off his dripping mantle, nnd disencumbered himself of his heavy riding boots, he sat down on the oaken settee opposite the huge fireplace; while Campbell went out to see that the horse was attended to. Left to himself, Kenelm began to look around him, and lie was much struck by the scene which presented itself within the room. The huge Drcplace, which was filled with wood, sent a bright and ruddy glow over the whole room, and lighted up with a bright glare the figure of a young woman, who sat on ono side of the ample hearth, and who was tho only other occupant of the apartment besides himself. There was something very peculiar in tho appearance of this girl, which riveted Hamilton's gaze in spite of himself. Sho sat perfectly mo tionless, excepting for the rapid motion of her fingers, which she was employing in knitting; her plaid throwa back from her her head left her palo face exposed to view, which was marked by a singularly frigid yet by no means vacant expression. This was caused in part, no doubt, by the fixed stare of her large blue eyes, which never moved in their sockets, nor brightened with a sparkle of life ; it was evident thnt she was stone blind, while there lurked certain lines around the thin, compressed lips, which seemed to indicate that she had all the cuteness, amounting almost to cunning, which often characterizes persons thus af flicted. The countcnanco was far from beautiful scarcely even pleasing yet it impressed Hamilton with a sense of power such as we often feel, and yet cannot define, in the presence of person nnknown to ns. She gave no sign of being conscious of bis pres- ence, bnt he felt she wo aware that he was in the room; and, as he continued to watch her, sitting there in her strong impassive- ness, an indefinable feeling of shrinking and dread took possession of him, for which he could not account. He had been think- ing of his rival's bloody death, and it struck him that the implacable "maiden" who j had taken Argyle' young life might be fitly , represented by this wicrd damsel, who sat j there so lite a uuna nexoraoie wic, wcmv-i ..- . -i i it i - .i I. r . ... ... .? n. I in" a web or inevitable doom. The gallant knights of those time, whoj feared neither death nor danger, were prone to superstition, and Hamilton, hotrblooded ' and impetuous as he was, proved no excrp. tion to thi rule He was, therefore, heart- noil io una ruic. nc , , i!y Clad when the inn-keeper returned and broke the ominoo silence which oppressed him. i of her voice, feeling us if it would be a re lief to hear her speak ; but she never opened her lips. Sho rose up, however, tit once, and began to move about in a strange me chanical manner, her blindness becoming more apparent as sho guided herself by touch, while tho staring, glassy eyes seemed to him absolutely ghastly, as she passed near him. Sho placed some oatmeal cakes and dried fish on the table, along with a jug of whiskey, and then returned to her plucc by the lire, where 'she sat, immovable as lielore. " Is this your duughter?" said Hamilton to tho iun-keepcr, as he invited him to draw near and cat. " My only child, nnd blind from birth," was the reply, uttered utmost with stern ness, ns it the subject were painful. " EI spcth's not like other folks, and you had better tuko no heed or her." Humillon took the hint and said no more, while ho plied himself to the rude faro set before him with a keen set appetite. Nor did he spare tho whisky, which was won derfully cheering ufter his wet ride; nnd when ho had finished his repast, he felt, ns ho suid, like a new man altogether. Fill ing his glass again, ho invited Campbell to join him, and the two beirnn to converse to gether on the events of tho day. Kenelm sat with his back to tho blind girl, and as she never moved or spoko ho soon forgot her presence altogether, and hnd well nigh forgotten, also, the necessity of concealing his name und lineage from tho-e retainers of his foes, when ho was startled into a sudden remembrance of his position. Alluifing to some political event, ho mentioned that he had been at Holyrood tho day before. ' Yo como from Kdinbro', then,' suid the inn-keeper, kindling with a sudden fierce ness; and clenching his list he struck it on the table with a violent blow, exclaiming, " Curses on tho bloody city ! the city of murderers! and may the lire from heaven come down upon it and consume it!" " Amen!" said a deep, stem voice, almost at Kenelm's ear; and he started involunta rily as ho saw that it had come from the blind woman's lips. Something, too, in the sudden passion of Campbell had stirred the angry blood within himself; and, whilst an involuntary instinct told nun what tram ol thought hnd thus fired the retainer of Ar gyle, he hnd much ado to hide his own an tagonistic feelings. " You speak sharply, Master Campbell," he said, nt length. " The capital of Scot land is beholden to you in truth." " Ay," said the Highlander, bis brow growing red with suppressed rage; -but why should i curse tho stones though they are stained with the blood of tho noblo Ar gylo. Rather let me curse his enemies who drove him to death his bitter foes, who made his life so dark to him that he was fain to break some petty law that ho might die. Curses, then, I Ray, upon the traitor Hamilton who stole his bride!" " Amen!" the deep voice answered, but Hamilton henrd it not; his fiery passions were aroused beyond control; he lorgot all but that ho had been called a traitor, and, starting to his feet ho advanced towards Campbell, saying: ' Man, do you know of whom you arc speaking?" " I neither know nor care," said the inn keeper rising also. " But I say yet more: not only curses upon him, the traitor, but upon her his lady light-o'-love, who would have brought a stain upon Argyle's house had she become his bride!" This was too much. lu another instant Hamilton's dirk was gleaming in his hand. " Villain, unsay that word!" ho thundered out; " she is as pure a driven snow." " His lady light-o'-love!" repeated Camp bell, with a mocking smile, at the same timo preparing to defend himself; but the furious Hamilton hnd closed with him ere the words had well passed his lips one fierce strug gle followed, then the Highlander fell heav ily to the ground, ns his assailant plunged the dagger into his breast up to tho very hilt, exclaiming: " Die, then, with the foul lie in your throat!" One deep groan ono strong convulsion of the stalwart limbs, and Campbell was a corpse. Hamilton stood transfixed, while his boiling blood gradually subsided, and his passion cooled in the presence of death. The whole thing had taken place so sud denly, that he could hardly believe the liv ing, breathing man he had been talking to so amicably but a few minutes before, was lying there, murdered by his own hand. Dut suddenly, as he gazed, he felt his flesh creep with a strange horror, as he saw the soul- i.ea rtf fha tilirlil nmiilnri nrttiirnA.I wards him. a she knelt ou the floor hv her ,l.o full,. i.nl. .Wm d,.

Hamilton drew back, shudder ing, from the fixed stare, so dreadful seemed the expression of hate on her white, ghastly face; but, as he receded, she crept towards him on her knee and laid her hand, which she had steeped in her blood, on his, till it bore the same red stain, and said in a low stifled voice: "Yon have murdered him, and you shall die for it. None saw the murder, for my blind eye saw it not; but think not to escape; the vengeance of lieov- en will track you out one day!" Then, flinging np her arms to heaven, she ex- claimed: "My father, oh, my father!" and fell npon the corpse with a shriek so wild j anu p,c...g, u nau uuu im .... i ,i . ; . . i i ; , . .., :r . must nave wruug upon ine ears oi every , person ' the town, and reached even : throngh the massive walls or Inverary i Castle.

Hamilton never slackened hi rmcc till he had laid ten miles between him and Inve rary. In those day tho course of justice was ns stem its it was suminury; and he felt well assured thnt the present Marquis oi Argyle, the youngvr hrotlier of Ins rivul, would never rest until he hud found out the murderer of his rctuiner. esneciullv when he heard from Klspeth the circumstances of his death; and, ir ho succeeded m his search, the services of tho " inuidcn" would right speedily be culled into action for Kenelm himself. When nt last he ventured, tinder cover of a dark fir wood, to stop his furious course, ho began to consider the best means of avoiding discovery, with no small anxi ety ns to the issue. His best hope was in the fact that none hnd been present during me murder unt tho Wind girl, who could not identify him, and that not n simile in habitant of 1'iverary hnd seen him, except her dead father himself. He was now not very fur from (he house of his kinsman, whero ho originally intended to have passed the night. The time ho had spent so fa tally in the inn nt Inverary had not ex tended beyond an hour, nnd the rapid pace nt which he had traversed tho last ten miles hud fully brought him to the tunc when he would, according to his ordinary style of traveling, have reached his desti nation. Ho therefore resolved to proceed thither nt once, ns if he were only arriving from tho villugo where ho had left his ser vants, and to trust Unit no one would ever suspect him of having -inndc his unfortunate detour into the domain of his enemy. This plan succeeded perfectly; he was expected by his cousin; und next morning his ser vant joined him, having left his comrade doing well ; so that no doubt was for a mo ment entertained that he hnd deviated from the road ho had been expected to take, and hehadonco more started for Edinburgh before the news of the murder had spread beyond Inverary. Nevertheless, when the fact hnd become known, it created a great sensation, chiefly owing to the peculiar cir cumstances or tho case a murder commit ted by an unknown assassin in the presence of ono sole witness, and that one deprived of the power of seeing the murderer, was, even in those days of bloodshed, a striking event, nnd tho mysterious escape of the criminal seemed altogether uniiccouiitablc. Tho Miirquis of Argyle, who was at his castle on tho fatal night, left no stone un turned in his efforts to discover the perpe trator of tho deed; being stimulated to unusual activity in the search by the stiong suspicion ho entertained that the assassin was in some way connected with the family of his foes, the Hamiltons. This he gath ered from the conversation between the murderer and his victim, which Elspoth de tailed word for word; but it afforded no clue whatever to the actual individual, and Kenelm himself was never suspected. After a few weeks of useless investiga tion, the search was given up, but the de tails of the murder were carefully recorded by the court of justice, and the Lord of Argyle declared that, if ever m his lifetime the assassin was discovered, he would bring him to the scaffold, lie tho intervul ever so long. El.speth found a home in the Marquis 8 household, after the good old fashion of these timrs, which recognized a cluim on the part of the clan to find u ref uge with the family of their chief, and ken elm had, to till appearance, escaped with perfect impunity. Yet he, guy and rccldcsa na ho aeemod, waa aecrclly haunted by one dark forebuilin;', which never left him night or day. t'umpbell wna not the liral mau he had aluin in the course of hia atonny career; hut he wua Ihe first muii he had murdered lUo tint wheae life he hud tuken other wise than in liwiurabla warfare ; and ulrcudy Iho unfailing retribution of actuul crime had com menced in the deep secret of his heart. Wherever he went, alone or iu crowds, from the hour when the low, eolemu warning of ihe blind girl came la him, ns he etood uilli h a feet dabbling iu Ihe blond of lu r father, ho heard that voire ringing ia his ear, anu idling mm mai vengeance wouiu surely find him yet, and the sleepleaa justice of Ihe Invis ible truck him out when least he looked for it. Not even the jny-bell, on hie wedding mornine, could drown tho ominous whisper in his soul, nor the awect tones or Hie gcntlo J.ady hllen, while lie murmured her bridal vows. Still was it sounding there, when the feeble cry of hia first born spoke of new ties to make life sweet; aud, later anil, he heard it through the firing of Iho aa lulea that greeted him aa ainbassador ou a foreign ahore. Years passed on, most of which were spent at one of the continenlul ccurta; und when, at last, he returned with hia wife aud family to Ed inburgh, Ihe murder of Ihe innkeeper had not been thought ol by any one lor a long lime paaL One day, about a nioulh alter hie arrival in the Scottish capital, Hamilton waa walking along Ihe most fashionable part r the old town, where the houses of the nobility were chielly lo be found, when hia attention waa attracted by a fray which was going on in the etreeta between two young men such a eight was by no nirana uncommon in tlue daaj but the fury of the lads was so great Unit it waa evident aome eerioua miachicf great that would ensue if they were nut eeparuted Hamil ton, whose rank in the city entitled him lo inter f re, at once rushed in between them, calling to them in a loud voice lo desiht inuncdidtely trom further quarreling, and, with a firm grasp of his strong hauda ou Ihe shoulder of each, he suit them reel ng to Ihe opposite sides of the street The affair had collected a considerable crowd, and Hamilton's rank nnd position were well known as he turned to resume Ins walk.

I know he is my fulhcr's murderer!" lu another nu ment Argyle waa confronting llamillou, too thankful to have audi a charge established against his ancient enemy. 1 he people crowded round, nnd if any hnd been disposed to doubt the blind woman's recognition, Hamilton's own awe-struck conscience set a seal upon it. truth, fur he attempt ed ne defense, but kept his appalled look still fixed upon the blind woman's ghusily luce ; he Id his hands full at his side, and reclaimed:" ll is Ihe hand of God, and 1 am lost I" lie spoke truly he wns lost indeed.
