In October, his haling ordered Dr. Ivnne lo England, he was secretly mar- ried to Vov, and made his will, leaving five thousand dollan to tier in a privale trust to his brother. His last was to hor. Thh legacy was cot paid, and souio injurious reports having been raised, legal advisers urg- id n bnit for dovrer us the wiiloir, and the publicilion of a memoir. One was prepar- ed, cmliodiing one hundred and thirlj'-four nf.Dr. Kane's letters, and Mr. had it in press, when the publication nnd suit were both stopped by a compromise with the brothers and executor of iJr. ICnm-; they ngrcung to jnj-thu interest of the money left her, and u gum down to pay her ex- pruiidnl the would discontinue the hiiit iu the orph in's court, Thiliideljdiia, and would up the letters, with the MS. me- moir, and place them in the hands of a trustee, who would surrender them to the Katies at her death. A bond was tigncd by the Kmn'3 in for the observance of the terms they agreed to; Mrs Kane be-in permitted lo reclaim her letters, in the eient of their failure to piy the rjturturlj- instalment nf intcrrst. This agreement was liiililed tiy their refusal to the sum promised for her expenses, then, the quarterly instalments, and in Juno List, Mrs. Kline reelaimed her letters of the tru.-tec. Shu is now at liberty lo publish the volume which is to cstillisli her fair fame, and lo show the world n singular ex- ample of faithful love, enduring unkinilnc's and calutany. The death of Mrs. Fox, Mrs. Kane's mother, has retarded thopubli- cntion, but it will, doubtless, appear in good time. THUNDER STORM, r.v 0101101: PRENTICE. 1 never was n man of feeble There are but few scenes of either human or elemental blrifc, ujion which I have not looked with a brow of daring. 1 have stood in battle, when the whirlwind WT? rending inks from thur rockj- cliffs, nnd scattering them to (ho I hnic scan these things with a swelling soul that knew not of danger; but thorp is something in the thun- dcr's, oice that makes me tremble like n child. I have tried to overcome this un- m.itily weakness. I have called pride to mj- aid I have even sought to strengthen my moral courage in the lessons of philoso- phy, but it avails me nothing. At the first low of the distant cloud, my heart shrinks, ipiin-rx and dies within me. My drcii] of thunder had its origin in an incident that occurred when I was a boy .of years. I had n cousin, a girl of the Bame as myself, who had been the con- j-taiil cumpnnion of my childhood. Mrange that after the 1 ipsc of so ninny yearn, that countemncc should be familiar to me. I can sec the bright young creature, Hashing like a beautiful gem, hf-.r free locks streaming as with joy upon the rising g.ile; her cheek glowing like n rubj- through trans- parent enow. Her voice had the melody and joyouiiiess of :i bird's, and when she bounded orcr Ihc woodland hill, or fresh green i alley, shouting a glad answer to every voice nf inture, and clapping her lit- tle- in the very ccsticj of her young existence, nhe looked as if breaking away, a free from the earth, and going where all'things are beautiful and hrtppy lib' her. It was morning in the middle of August. The little girl had been passing some dajB at my father's house, anil "he was now to return home. tier path lay across the and 1 gladly became the companion of her walk. I neier knew a pummer morn- ing more beiutiful and still. Only one cloud wai mid that seemed as pure and white, -ind peiccful, as if it had been the inci nlo smoke of Mime burning censor of the The hiingtilent in the woods, the waters in the Iny forgot their undulating, the fiowirswcre bending their hc.vh ns if drciming of the rainbow and dew, and the atmosphere was of such a toft and luiurious that it Fcemcd a cloud of t-cattered down bj' the hand of ,1 I'eri, fiom the far-off garden of 1'ara- di--c. The green csrlli and blue waters lay abroad in tl.nir boundlessness, nnd Iho jwaceful rkj hung over them. The little creature at my si'is was in a delirium of happine-s, and her sweet voice came ringing out upon the air as often .is alie heard the note uf HOIIIO faiorite bird or found some itrange lonely flower in her frolic wamler- inpp. The unbroken and almost supernat- ural Imnquility of tlio day lasted till noon. Then, for the first time, indications of nn approaching tempest was nmuifcsl. Over the summit, of a mountain, at a distaneo of nboat n mile, the fulus of n large cluud be- came suddenly and at tho camo tinn> a hollow roar came down on the winds a) if it had been the bound of Vaves in a rocky cavern. The clouds rolled on like a banner unfolded upon'thc nir, but rtill tho atwoi'- phcrc iriaus ralm and as niotiuu' i 'i, .1 less as before, and tlicro was not _cven a quiver upon the tlecptng waters to tell of1 r the hurricane. 'Hie tempest was As tho only resort, we fled to a mighty bale that stood at the foot of the, precipice, Jlero' we rciuniBtd and gazed breathlessly upon _. the clouds marshalling tlicmsclvcslikc bloody giants in the eky. The thunder-was frc-juent, but every burst was so 'fearfcV th.-it the young creature who stood besido' me, shut her cj-cs convutircly, clung witb, desperate strength to my arm, shrieked as if her heart would break. In a few" rain-- utcs the storm was upon us. During Uio' height of its fury, the little girl lifted fingers towards the precipice that towered aboi e us I looked and saw an amethystine peal: the next moment the clouds opened and tho mountain tottered to its foundation: a roar like the groan of the universe fitted the air, nnd I felt mj-solf blinded and tlirowu- I knew not whither. ITow long I remained insensible I-cannot tell but when consciousnesa returned, tho' lioluncc of the tempest was abating, thu roaring of winds was dying on tho tree--; tops, and the deep tones of the thundcr.- cloud came in fainting murmurs from tho eastern hills. I rose and looked and almost deliriously around. She was there, the dear idol of my infant lore, stretcTSed out on the earth. After a mo- ment of irresolution, I went and looked'" upon her. The handkerchief upon her neck t was dlighllj- rent. A single red and 'a dark spot upon her bosom, told where thu path- way of death had been. 'f At first I clasped her to my breast with cry of agony, and then" laid her down'aprT J gaie-d her face with almost feelings of calmness. Her bright disheveled ringlcU around bar brow; the look of. terrorVuad faded from her lips, mid infant smiles were pictured there the red roso tinjjo.unon her cheek was lovelj- as in life, and T pressed it-' to my own the fountains of tears wero opened, and I wcjitas if my heart "was wa-J ter. I have but a dim recollection of what followed I know that I remained weeping nnd motionless till the coining ttrilightfanil I was taken tenderly by the hand and ledT away where I saw the countenance of pa- rents and Many years have gone by on of light and shadows, but the scene I portrayed still comes over me with a terrible distinctness. Tho _pak yet stands at base of the precipice, but its limbs arc black-' and dead, and the hollow trunk looks up-' ward to the bky as if catling to for drink ns an emblem of decay. One j car ago I visited (he spot, and thoughts of bygone years came ntournfuUjr to me. I thought of tlio little innocent ing who fell by_ my bide like some" beautiful; tree of spring, rent .up by tlio'whirlwind the midst of its blossoming. But I remora-, he-red and oh there was joy in tho mem-' ory that she bad gone where no lightnings in the rainbow and where' the sunlit waters are only, by tlio btonnlircath of Omnipotence.' 3Iy readers will understand why I bbriuK in terror from thunder. Even the conscioas-r ness of security is no relief W fears have assumed the nature of an instinct, and seems indeed part of my existence. ArtcmtiB Word on tlio Uormonfl.
