Altliongu early in the afternoon, the lu-avy clouds of an approaching Htonn eo darkened tha shore, that candles weia lit, and in tlu-irdim light the gathered crowd lis- tened to the beating of the wavca upon the btiaeh, and Ilia distant roll cf thunder that an- nounced tho coming strife.

Sailors drank from their poisoned cups with less noise and the village politicians were less absorbed in the presidential clecticn. One of the number more uneasy than tho rest. A young man, of mild prepossessing appeatance, with a ri3o inhis hand nnd a powdtr horn stung over uhouldor, for he had but few minutes before come in from gunning, pacid to and from the door, looked at the troubled bay and clon-ly sky, and frequently asked an old captain of a oeuouner when he wouli be nblo to night i "To night 7 Kf, tit 1" he responded to ons of these enquiries: nor next day, [expect.
