Though the inhabitants May be blessed with every enjoyment depending upon soil and Cli mate yet in the very bowels of the land there Are constantly the elements of destruction. Even while we Are most Happy and secure the Volcano May be on the Point of bursting Forth with overwhelming ruin which no foresight can anticipate and no Pru Dence can Avert. Such was the state of St. Domingo at the opening of my tale on the eve of that fearful insurrection which consigned so Many unsuspecting beings to a premature death or drove them from their Homes and Kindred to struggle with want in the loneliness of a foreign land. The hot glaring Day had passed and was succeeded Liy the soft splendor of a West India evening. Monsieur a a Large proprietor of land and slaves was Silling at a table in his Saloon looking Over some newspapers which he had just received from a neighbouring town. At the other end of the table his wife wag engaged in preparations for the evening before an open window in the same apartment sat their Only daughter Theresa with her Cousin and accepted Lover Eugene Eugene was an orphan. At the very beginning of his course through life he had encountered misfortunes and difficulties which Only his own talents and Energy had enabled him to surmount. He had met with wrongs Loon was to Eugene the work of a moment. There was a Small closet at the head of the stairs Monsieur a bad devoted to his collection of arms for which he had a singular fondness. It was no time to search for with the1wiw Energy of despair Eugene Thraw himself against the door. It gave Way and he was precipitated headlong into the closet among rattling pistols and following pieces and flasks and bags of ammunition. He selected two double barrel guns and a by its Large calibre was for his purpose. He them heavily with Swan shot and took a position where he ecu id command a View of the whole stairs. The negroes in the mean time had not been Idle. They had broken Down the door with axes and were now spreading themselves through the lower apartments of the building. Eugene could hear their muttered threats which gradually swelled into oaths and shouts As they met with no resistance and were unable to find their Vii Tims. The Light in the upper Story at length caught their attention. They Are there they Are there was shouted from one to another and immediately their heavy Steps were heard upon the stairs his heart throbbing with intense anxiety but not with fear Eugene watched their Advance. He waited till they reached the first Landing place. And then while the Foremost were crowded together by the turn of the stairs he fired into the thick mass of woolly Heads and with both barrels of his fowling piece. The Deal Ning reverberations of the report and the thick volumes of smoke prevented Eugene from ascertaining at once the affect of could sympathize with the spirit of her Lover. The negroes i n the mean time had been preparing themselves by into i another attack. Their silence had gradually yielded into a confused mixture of voices which was now swelled into a riotous tumult. They were evidently again approaching with imprecations of vengence upon Eugene. They paused a moment at the foot of the stairs Ami were heard encouraging each Oliver to be Foremost in the attack. They again rushed Forward in a Lumuel Mehis body but they were Only half re assured. They paused voluntarily be fore reaching the fatal Landing place and a single fire fro a a Eugene was sufficient to drive them Back. In this at tempt however their loss was trifling and they still remained assembled at the foot of the stairs. One of them now called to Eugene demanded a Par Ley. It was their apparent Leader the same who had murdered Mons. A. He ascended the stairs until he reached the first Landing. Said Eugene you Are near enough let me hear what you have to the negro was about half intoxicated. He had Little to say except reiterated threat of Ven gence against Eugene if he should per severe in his resistance. We will fire the head ded finally if we cannot subdue you in any other we Are determined to perish in the replied Eugene rather than Trust ourselves in your hands. And he added that we Are in sight of the town of. A fire must alarm and bring Down a body of troops upon the negro seemed struck by this Rea remained a Phis Post. Hour after hour passed away and still no sound was heard except the faint groans of the i wounded and the slow measured drop Ping of blood from the staircase which struck upon Eugene s ear like the tick ing of a death worm. His strength was exhausted and his spirits almost Bro Ken by anxiety and fatigue joined by the sick of Kininess and burning thurst produced by his wound. He Felt repeatedly that he was upon the Point of swooning. By a pow Ful exertion of the will like that which a drowsy Man arouses himself from slumber he succeeded in rally ing his faculties and pre serving himself from falling. At length the sound of footsteps was once More in the Saloon. A single figure ascended the stairs and looked anxiously upward. They Are White exclaimed Eugene and fell senseless to the floor. When he recovered he was laying upon a bed and Louis l the brother of Theresa was leaning Over him. This Young Man resided in the neighbouring town for the More con Veniel prosecution of his studies. The insurrection had extended alike to town and country and Louis had escaped with difficulty. He had hurried to his father s House where the first object that met his eyes was his father s Corpse. I Are you Able to said he to Eugene As the latter raised himself up on the bed. Eugene replied in the affirmative. Shall we make for the Mountain or sea the sea Shore by All replied Eugene we May get on Board of a vessel and reach the United we Are going to a land of Stran whole no. 163. I i. the contrast. J do you see that proud overbearing than Riding in his guided he before a magnificent mansion and slivered la conies obedient to his Call assist him to descend. Do you see that poor miserable boy whose tattered clothes scarcely shield him from the a clemency of the weath it Mark with a beseeching look vip solicits to Purchase a be of and behold How 1 y he is spurned Twenty five Tullai pompous Man was As poor As friendless and As wretched As the Urchin which he Des Pises. In. Twenty five years passed since that Day. The same parties meet to the contrast. The once poor Bay stands in the Pride of manhood Active intelligent Rich. A Lovely woman his wife leans upon his Arm and three Blooming girls Are by his fide. Grace in every action Benevo Lence in every expression and affluence smiles in his in ostentatious adorn ments. An old Man approaches. The tottering Steps the threadbare garments and the painful expression that frosts in every feature too painfully denote a Man of want add tvo. Better dead than to drag on a miserable existence. This May Blush appear to some an improbable Romance. It is truth in in a country like ours there is no Man however poor if aided by Indus try Economy and virtue but May raise the lowest rank of society to the the knowledge of this fact is a blessed incitement to the music hath charms to soothe the one or. Savage of or Ftp lately eloped with a voting and Isa Duful lady who prides herself in the musical name of Harj Irr. Of Mankind. Wilh an a formed for fraud and Ingrati tude of All whom he had trusted had changed his naturally and Frank Bear ing to one of haughty coldness. But my whom he might love without Dan Ger and Reserve. His eyes were now fixed upon hers with a mixture of Pride and affection which was not very far removed from hol Atory. The window at which they were seated was covered with a luxuriant Vine trained Der Theresa s direction tired Moonlight streamed through it and the evening Breeze rustled among Beau he of a tropical night around them the lovers Wera enjoying that interchange of Rorm tic feeling which it is so much fashion to rid Ieula m matter of fact country of ours but which i consider the single Green spot single sparkling Fountain in in the smoke disappeared almost immediately and discovered the negroes pen the stairs in the wildest some were endeavouring to support and assist the wounded some were struggling to Force their Way Down through those below them and others were looking upward in a state of confusion and dismay which pre vented them from ing. Another sent the dying headlong Down the stairs. There was for Somi time a comparative stillness in the House. Some of the wounded were dragged from the stairs and others were left to that was heard. The spirit of the negroes seemed for present to be completely quelled. They moved As if afraid of the noise therr own Steps and spoke Only in whispers. They seemed at length to collect themselves into a room in which there was a Case the dreary waste of a sordid and liquors. A noise was heard in which fish world. What they were conceived to be the wrenching of heaven Only know. Pin no open of . Phi Ticia says that the most innocent sigh to in the world Are a baby biting Iti toe and a Kitten in Active Pursuit of its Tail. Heaven Only knows. Chance has once or twice made me an unintentional listener to the conversation of lovers. Much As i was interested at the time i could not afterwards recollect a word open of locks. The madness of into thought he will now be added to the brutal passions of these think that their Intercourse consists Gene an air of Reserve which might Al a the Exchange of kind words and most Deen taken for listless India tones rather than ideas. Feren Ceto what was passing around him. Sued i will fire upon the messenger who dares to name Sueh terms to me interrupted Eugene involuntarily Rais ing his gun. The negro retreated has tily to his companions. There was now an affection of still Ness and secrecy in their movements which led Eugene to apprehend some new Mode of attack. He was not Dis appointed. In a few minutes their Loa the main body of the negroes followed at a Short distance. It was obviously their aim to distract Eugene s Atten Tion. I must keep Back he thought he and Cope with a single negro As Well As i what we have taken Slong to explain was conveyed to Eugene by a single glance and a single thought. With the rapidity of lightning he fired both of his double barrels into the main body and the next instant their Leader was upon him. Eugene had caught up his Musket buttliere was no time to fire. He succeeded partly in parrying a blow aimed at him by the slave with a Cythe. The weapon however entered his left Side and glanced against his ribs. Before the stroke could be repeated the negro received a heavy blow upon his head from the Bun of Engene s Musket. He was stunned for Hia body across staircase. He recover Himmell blow while they were making their pre Paja liens Eugene removed the body of Theresa s father to an adjoining room. They would have been compelled to pass it in leaving the House. The Young men bore the females in their arms Over the stairs numbered As they were with dead bodies and Slippery with blood. My father 7 exclaimed in the thrilling tones of filial grief As Independence despite the thousand obstacles that oppose their course. In there is no Man however affluent but by extravagance and bad morals May fall from his High estate and close his Days Iri penury and to. Let none despise the poor because of their poverty let none flatter the Rich because of their wealth. We May there were two houses which it was necessary that our party should pass in order to reach the set Shore. By a Small circuit they were Able to keep at some distance from the first. It was on fire and the negroes were dancing around it wild gestures of they were compelled to pass immediately in front of the other House. As they approached that it was lighted. Eugene stopped with the females and Louis went Forward to reconnoitre. He advanced to a window of the which the Light was Bur Ning. All was still within. On the Hearth Lay the Corpse of an infant. Its fractured Skull and the revolting stain upon the Chimney piece showed too plainly the Mode of death. Near the Centre of the room Lay the Corpse of a girl of eighteen. Poor Mazial All Man of virtue Are if one Man possesses More intelligence than his Fellows though that of itself May not elevate him the ranks of the Good yer it brings him added re Spect and wins a willing admiration from All a sen Well known in his neighbourhood As a of great oddity humor and extravagance.

Circumstance in itself was of Little importance it was usual for the alter their daily task was completed to go to the dwelling House of their masters and complain of any Petty grievance or ask for Little there was however about this Man an heir of apprehension and uncertainty which had just fixed Eugene s attention when he rushed upon his master and buried in his bosom a Large knife which he had held unobserved in his the unhappy a fell from his chair without a groan and the next instant Eugene was standing Over his body with his right hand he bought knife from the table and in his left he held a chair with which he varied a blow aimed at him by the afraid to contend singly against such resistance and confounded perhaps by his own Success in the attempt upon his master s life the negro turned and retreated through the door at which he entered. A single glance showed eur with i its lines spoke to one whose patiently awaited t he result of h is sin element was danger. His eyes flashed Gle combat with their Leader. From under his brow but their fire was that of collected Ness and he was full alive to the peril of his situation and prepared to use every human Means to Avert them.

Her there is a huge Cliff in this part of St. Domingo which hangs Over the sea with a Small margin of Sand Between its base and the water.
