A HIGH BTORY. In one of the btuall interior towns of lugtand, where, tho superstitions of our nccttors still possess n bold on the minds T tlie people, the facts occurred a few years ince, of which the following is a true inr- ratuc: An farmer and his family prcpir- ng to celebrate Thanksgiving at hit wife's itlier's in an adjacent town, were hurried nd confused extremely on the day jirt-cccd- that by the multiplicity of [lings which imial be doue before they could eave lioruc with safety. The hotiso was lo jo banked up and the gleanings of the h-ir- cabbages, turnips and forth, put uUi the ecllar, that the extreme entrance hereto might be closed for the season, laving carried in the Iho boys were despatched to the barn for ftraw to fill he passage with, while the good nnn hint- elf was busied oa the opposite bide of Iho OUsC. An old ram, tho horned pitriarcli of a 'irgo floek of sheep kept on the farm, hav- tig got a taste of the scattered cabhagc c.ivi's, ontflred the cellar and 'ilently continin.il his feast. The avenue hrongli which he had entered was immcdi- itely cloted -up, and all the necessary work ind arrangements being completed, the :urger boj s utid girls off on foot in high rice, tho dog running nnd barking before hem. Soon after, the parents and their little >ncs, Iming put out the fire nnd fastened the doors and windows lo keep utit thieves, started on the siinc destination. On the afternoon of tho diy follov. ing the the family returned la their home, accompanied by some of their young Some of their youthful neighbors, of both were invited in, nnd a niprry Thanks- giving carousal was in full tide of operation, when one of the boys, who had been sent into the cellar witli a little tow- wick candle which give just light enough to make darkness visible to draw cider, ran back into the room, bis eyes glaring wildly, uttering the half suffocated exclama- tion "The deiil is in the cellar." I" said the father, "you have only been frightened by your own shadow, give me the light." Saung this; ha the inp the candlestick fatt in the shaking linnd of the boldly to the cellar but bcforo he had descended half the the large saucer eycv and cnormotH horns of tho ram caused him to retreat as much terrified as his son, rxr-himing "Surf enough, the iti tho Titc good man tclzrtl the grcit Tnhle and attempted to read, but the tandlc sputtered, burned blue, and threw such feeble light on the sacred page, tlir- book trembled FO miieh in the hands of the reader, that he could not distinguish one word from another. The little children cried mid thing to their mother; the girls ncfllotl clo-e lo their fa- I vorite fiwains; nnd tho whole house was 'Inking with agitation of its Inlf-dcmentcd inhabitant'. One bright thought, however occurred, and a messenger was sent for the minister to come and clny thr- devil.

On coming to the the roierend man was hailed n? a deliverer, nnd implored by at least a dozen at the same time, to drive the devil away. Itut few moments were lost questions which no one could answer, tafore the parson pu'hcd for- ward ns n lender, with the same penurious light into the cellar, the most courageous of the company keeping close behind him. He reached the foot of the stairs, the eyes of fire, the fhadowy outlines of tho enor- mous horns, magnified ten fold at lead, by the terror of those that beheld thun, removed all doubt, if any hnd existed, in his mind, as to the infernal nature of tho being with whom lie had to contend. The.divine in- stantly full on his knees, nnd with uplifted hands, began to pray in his most fervent manner. The ram not understanding the pious man's motives, but supposing by the motion of his hands, that he was daring him to a butting contest, made a paca with all his might at his supposed adversary, but, deceived by the swelling dimensions of liis drapery, juuscd the slender body of tho priest, and hastily backed to renew the as- sault, hooked one of bis horns into the. belt of his surplice, nnd pulled the parson wi'li him into the cellar!

Among tho company was a shrewd yonug farmer, who had from the first supposed the fiend to be nothing more than some domes- tic animal, but, being a lover of willing to fccca comedy, he kept his thoughts to himself nnd pretended to sympathise with them in their fears. ITe now thought it timo to interfere, and snatching a, pitch pini> knot from the blaiiug firo expressed lib determination lo rescue the preacher or perish in the attempt. A lovely damsel begged him to forego the rash attempt. "Don't! (.limited docs the care fur said another. "Take along the lliblu if jou will go'." suggested another. But unheeding the suggestion and the manifestations of concern for hid safety, he pushed into the cellar seized the animal by one of its horns, aud dragged the struggling .animal up stairs, calling to the .-lituuithul pirson: "Follow Tho horned dcxil was led in triumph, Inned by the vanquished ccdcbiaslic, in the miiKt of thi) ;.ij. lu-Miicntary ti- ICIILC and hanging doit u of heads ensued hut p ist stunt! was too ludicrous to ad- mit of Kibrr reflection; and loud peals of laughter broke forth from every tide, dur- ing nhiuh the r.un was turned out the dour, the parson absented himself without cere- mony, and sporU of the uieuing were re- sumed with better spirits than before. ilocs not Blessed is he who umkn n cent, fur he will have no income tux topiy.
