Old Ludovic Hartz always regardec his saddle with the deepest veneration and yet there appeared nothing about i capable of exciting his idolatry. It was a Turkish saddle, old, and deeply stainec with blood; yet, to the brave'Ludovic, it recalled a tale of other days, when, youno-, ardent, ;md enthusiastic, he first drew hTs sword in defence of his country its enemies. He had been opposed in battle against the hostile invaders of his native Hunga- ry' and many an unbelieving dog had his good sword smitten to the earth. Vari- ous had been the fortune of the war, and too oflen was the glory of the holy cross dimmed by-the lustre of the triumphant crescent. Such sad disasters were sel- dom alluded to by the brave hussar, but he loved to dwell on the successful actions in which he had been engaged. It was in one of those fierce combats that, suddenly cut off from his parly, he found himself surrounded by four infuria- ted Turks. 'Bat the recollection of you and your angel wou'd Ludovic say to his daughter, 'nerved my arm. I his own clownish figure and awkward gate, only increased his ire, and, in vio- lent wrath, he advanced to Theresa, in- sisting on his right to open the dance with her. Theresa pleaded her engagement; he persisted she refused his request, and laughed at his anger. He became vio- lent and rude. The hussar interfered, and the quarrel rose so high as to draw Ludovic to the spot. Karl, in a voice almost choked with passion, laid his grievances before him Theresa, in a tone of indignation, com plained to her father of his insolence, am appealed to him whether she were not a liberty to select for the dance she thought proper. 'You have no such thundered forth Karl. 'You are my betrothed wife, and as such, you be- long to me alone.' Theresa cast on him a smile full of scorn and contempt, but it faded as she looked to her father, and a deadly pale- ness overspread her countenance "as she inquired, 'Father, does this man speak truth 'He does, my was the reply; and she dropt insensible at his feet. Theyoung hussar, now knelt down be- was scarcely less so; he blamed his own imprudence and on contrasting the char- acters of the two youths, a violent con- flict between his feelings and his duty a- rose in his breast; but the stern honor of side her, passionately kissed her fair fore- icad, ami raising her in his arms, bore ler to an adjoining apartment, followed by the father and Karl. Theresa slowly evived. At first she saw no one, and breathing a deep sigh, murmured, 'It was 11 a horrid dream.' An anguished groan tartled her into perception and agony. She looked up and saw her father stanc ng before her, with folded arms and ouutenance clouded with, grief. Kar iso stood near with an smile nd the hussar knelt beside her, but In ace was buried in his hands. She then bund it was no dream. She looked to ler father. 'Father, is there no hope my honor is pledged.' She then rned to the hussar, and placed for a mo ment her cold hand in his; then risino- suddenly, threw at the feet Karl. '0 Kail, have mercy!

How three fell, I knew not; but severe and long was the conflict with the last of my foes, whose powerful arm was raised a- gamst me. Already I saw my wife a mournful widow, and my child fatherless, and these dreadful thoughts infused fresh vigor" into my arm; I smote the infidel dog to death, hurled him from his steed, and rifled hi.n as Its lay. At this mo- ment, several of the enemy appeared in sight, but I was to much exhausted to re- new the perilous conflict. My gallant horse lay wounded and in the agonies of death I threw myself on courser, and forced him on at his utmost speed until I regained my squadron.----- The saddle was steeped in the blood of my foe, and mine mingled with it. When a cessation of hostilities permitted the troops to rest fora epace from the horrors of war, I hastened .with the treasure, which, during the campaign, t had acqui- red, to my home, purchased these fertile fields around rny dwelling, and forgot for a season the miseries of The good Ludovic would here pause. He stiil retained a lively recollection of his lost ife, and he could not bear io nar- rate the circumstances of her illness and death. After that sad event, his home became hateful to him. and he resolved again to in the arduous duties ofa soldier- The little Theresa was kindly adopted into the family of his only broth- er, and there, after a lapse of some years, our wood hussar found her blooming in youthful beauty. Ludovic arrived only in time to close the eyes of his brother, who, on his death bed entreated him to bestow Theresa on his only son, when they should have at- tained a proper age. Grateful for his al- most care of his child, and mov- ed by the situation of his brother, whose heart seemed to be bent on this u- nion. Ludovic promised tint when his i daughter should have attained the of; eighteen, she should become the wife of; Karl, provided Karl himself desired the connection at that time; and. satisfied this promise, the old man died in peace. This engagement was concealed from Theresa, but it was known to Karl, -K-ho exulted in the thought that ibis rich prize cne day be his. 3o-.v habits and a coarse turn of mind, ihe delicate graces of Theresa had no charms for him; he loved her not. but beloved the wealth one day -would be hers, which j I appeal to your father. Will your fa- 'ther violate his promise lo the will said Ludovic, with solemni- ty. 'Then, exclaimed Karl, with fiendhke exultation, 'no power on earth shall save you from being mine and thus saying, he left the house. Theresa rose from her knees, and threw h-erself into the arms of her lover. The presence of her father was no restraint on her pure tenderness. Her tears fell fast on his manly countenance, but his agony was too great for that relief. Ludovic was deeply moved. He approached them, endeavored to calm their affliction, and related the circumstances under which this promise had been given but his con- cluding words, 'that he must hold it sa- threw them into a new paroxysm of grief. 'We must part, then, said the weeping Theresa, 'we must part can we survive this cruel blow j said Arnhold, 'no, I cannot live! without you let us once more entreat your father to have pity on us and the youthful lovers threw themselves at his feet. laFd Ludovic, sternly, 'thou a soldier, and ask me to tarnish my Arnhold felt the appeal; he started up, raised the weeping Theresa, cut off with his sabre one long bright tress, embraced and kissed her, placed her in the arms of her father and fled. Etery passing day carried withitsome portion of the fortitude of Theresa, as if she saw the near approach of the period which was lo consign her to a fate so dreadful. Three little weeks were all that lay between her and miserv. Ludo- vic endeavored to soothe her, but she would not be comforted. Had even her affections been disengaged, Karl would have been distasteful to her; but with af- occupations of ihe husband- men.

Unable, however, to endure the sight of her grief, he carried her to the abode ofa youthful female friend, who formerly re- sided near them, but on her marriage had removed to a village about sixty miles dis- tant. There he left Theresa, after recei- ving her solemn promise that she would return with him ihe day before ihat on which she should complete her eighteenth year. said she, with streaming eyes, 'I have never deceived you. If I live, I will return but do not grieve too deeply, should my heart break in this fearful struggle.' The old hussar dashed away a tear which strayed down his scar- red cheek, embraced his child and depar- ted. Time wore gradually away, and at last the day arrived which was to seal There- sa's fate. It found her in a state of tor- pid despair. Exhausted by her previous struggles, all feeling seemed dead; but icrmind was awakened tonewsufierinnr. A friend arrived to conduct her to her fa- her. The good Ludovic lay, apparently on the bed of death; and with breathless impatience Theresa pursued her journey. On her arrival, her father's sick room was not solitary. The detested Karl was there, and there too was the youthful hus- sar. 'My said Ludovic, 'my days are numbered my fate must soon be de- cided, and, alas! yours also To my dying brother I solemnly promised, that on this day I would offer you to Ins son for his bride. Without fulfilling my en- gagement, I could not die in peace; even the grave would afford no rest. Can you sacrifice yourself for my.future repose 'I can----1 cried the unfortunate Theresa, sinking on her knees, 'so help me Heaven 'Heaven will bless a du- tiful child !'said Ludovic, with 'Karl, draw near." Karl resa shuddered. said Ludovic, 'you say you ove my child cherish her, I conjure you, as you hope for future happiness. in her you will possess a treasure but I nust warn you, she will bring you but one jortion of my started and retreated a few steps.

I will reclaim them from those rapacious monks and tear them from the altar 'You cannot, yon dare replied Ludovic. raising his voice in anger 'my agreemenl with your father had reference to my daughter wealth form- ed no part of it.'
