Ile was answered at once by a blow on the head from a slingshot, or similar instru- j merit, whi*it felled him to the ground insensible. On recovering, he found j himself lying, gagged and b mud, to the s bottom of the coach, which was being driven furiously Defenseless a* a f fhecp U*rne to the shanibles, he awaited hi* fate with as much resignation a* he could master. Hour* scorned to pass before tile re- > hide came to a etop, when the door wa-opened aud he wa* lifted out in silence ; by tw o st ut men. Ile now siw by the 1 glimmering starlight, that they were! standing on the end af a long wharf— a pier—the other extremity of which was hid leu in darkness Hocking on the waves almost under their feet lay a suian row-boat. Into this, still without a word bein.; sp ken. he was transferred by the same hands and it was made fast to the «tirn of a {-ailing vessel, which lay close Ly with all her Canvas* set fflv two captors climbed aboard th® Int j ter emf", rn hose anchor was iuimcdiute-ly weighed, ami die stood out to sea. < wing Mr. Young, alone and helfle-behind her. Before morning the boat was cast off. the sailing vessel quickly disappeared from Ina view. and tfie unfortunate amelu ut found himself drifting, with-I out oars or provident, at the mercy of the Waves. When day broke he hod j succeeded in freeing one of his hand.-, i and shortly after released himself from I al! his fastenings. Ile now discovered that his pockets ! had been rifled and his watch and wa!- j let taken, together with the keys of his ■ office door and safe. ()u tne morning following Mr Y oung? I I abduct tem.

Never before, j during the Sheen years she had lived : I with him, had he beet ten minutes be- j hind time Of course, he might he in-disposed. With some trepidation she went up stair** and knocked at his chum-j ber door. The NUmmons, again and I again repeated, awakened no response ; Ile might have gone out for a walk, j though *uch had never been his habit, j i An hour passed, and she grew seriously alarmed. Finally, when a business ac- I quaiotaoce of .Mr. Young’s called loin ‘ quire why his store remained closed, Mrs Comfit piocured assistance, and her master's door was broken open A careful search of the apartmeut only resulted in showing that it had apparently not been occupied during the preceding night. Days and weeks rolled on and nothing was seen or heard of the missing merchant. Advertisements appeared iu the leading journals, offering a Bharal reward for information concerning him ; but none was forthcoming. The case created considerable excitement as well in the community at large, as ainoi.g Mr. Youngs immediate conncc- about as go enlightened fon the matter of witchcraft) as the England of the prerent day; and yet the superstitious laws •gainst witchcraft were not effaced from th** statute book of our nm*her land befjrc the year 173G.

The wife would be sympathetic, but when a frowning brow, silence and rn I lack of the usual caresses are all the token she had of he liege lord s trouble, all her boasted intuition cannot keep her from flv'ng to the conclusion that it is a personal matter— that she is no longer loved r r that he loved some one el NL And I believe mur-h domestic misery has been caused in the first place by th» man’* secretiveness when he had no secrets which might not have been shared bv his wife. Y\*tt may say, why should he talk to one who cannot understand %r give euunael —to a be*ng with such vague idea* of stocks an i banking and speculation that she can only wander why things hav# gone wrong?
