CHAPTER II. A PEBSONAGE OF VAST IMPORTANCE. I slept 111 tbat night. The demons'that Attend the pillow of the wretched were hard, at their work of torture, and on the morrow ,1 rose with a mingled feeling of soreness and bewilderment. My bodily injuries indeed now caused little inconvenience, but •BUcb was the dire confusion of my mind } that I could not at once recall the precise •causes of the turmoil—the thunderbolt ot the letter, the provocation, the folly, the Impending ruin. The effort, when successful, did not tend to raise the spirits. A clear perception o£ tho situation was .simply a passing from the vague horrors of a nightmare to the certainties of an obdu- Tfate fortune. But necessity has always a t stimulant, and to certain stubborn natures ty is its tonic. I was braced for trh«j|fwa8 in front, if not with Christian • fortitude to bear my wrongs and hardships, at least with a desperate defiance, a determination, deep as the wounds in my soul, to retaliate with all my might upon my enemies. There might bo no hope of victory,but there was a Wicked satisfaction in prolonging tho conflict and rendering evil for evil eren to the bitter endl In the raw atmosphere of the dawn, bowever, my resolution could not keep me from shivering. My impatience to be off brought me to the point at wbicb I was to take the coach a good hour too early. That time, for the want of better employment, I spent pacing to and fro on the pavement of Princes street, chewing the cud of very sour reflections. About me stablemen shouted and .swore, horses clattered into place, and fussy passengers made a commotion for no reason whatever, as fussy passengers have a way of doing. At another time I should have been amused, but just then babel and the tongues ten times confounded could Hot have diverted my dismal and rankling thoughts. The morning broke brilliant and keen— caller, as they say in Scotland—with the wind coming briskly off the firth and the level'sun striking with a dazzling radiance on dewy roof nnd tower and «pire. At that hour the scene was one of transcendent beauty. Misery Itself, which is egotistical .•and jaundiced, could not look without a thrill of exaltation on the romantic city flashing in liquid brightness, as if she bad just arisen, dripping from a bath in the sen, and glowing, x nay, blazing, with a thousand colors that made her pinnacles points of fire and turned her ramparts and buttresses to opul aud amethyst. , .Every•moment, there were fresh enchantments,'magical effects of sold and rosu and tmuzy silver, BO that Edinburgh, cluster- ''ig about her hills and precipices and oken into iridescent peak) and fantastic [ictured masses, seemed a port's ulremn, a ity of fairyland. Yotalri-.-ifiy, in obedience y to the condition of her existence, she was •bending her nuek to the prosaic yoke of a •ordld routine. Her ciklgeiia were coming forth to their daily toil with the marks of struggle on their bn»v-,. A little while longer aud tho sun \\-m-.kl look down on men and women striving with each other fora pittance-to keep lift! in. By tin easy process I made their <ruu my own. The castle nlonu r.d .:.<,! independent and unsubduablc, lilted completely above the trivial and vexatious ml'iUrs of life. The. sentinel's steel gleamed on the battlements with stirring and quickening sun Kestions ot its own, I thought of the glory of carrying arms, experiencing in imagination something of the shock of battle and the rapture of victory, Why •hould I not join the ranks of those who gftyly sought renown with banner aud music? What more natural to the hand ot a blRhlander than the hilt of a sword? But as I asked myself the question the trumpet blared out its summons to mount and so Instead of getting into warlike ac- ooutermentB and putting my fortune to tl)o arbitrament of bloody strokes, as rny lord Stanley lias it, I took my seat on the coach as meek as any Quaker. ' We rolled off with regal pomp, our flour, iah of trumpets and the festive style of our •qulpage collecting a group of gazers ut even the early hour of 0. But they did not long feast their eyes on our splendor, for our steed* being fresh aud the charioteer fond ot displaying, we wore soon out of tie echoing streets and bowling merrily ulo the high way. The exhilaration was Immediate aud exquisite. There is something In freedom aud rapid motion aud vivid sun shine and the jovial companionship of Irrev wait coachmenund trumpeters aud the ml iRrfttiou of blushing rubtio maidens and inettleuomti liom<s g4)r with polished trappings and flying ribbons time ovuu tha unfortunate nini hypochondriac cannot resist. ity spirit*, chill uud K-uilen as thuy were ut atftrtiutf, were soon iu a glow, which they retained more or less until wo drew up amid uliouU of welcome at the Hound and'Stag in Perth, where we were to pass the night. The Hound und Stag waa a cozy old inn, with low black ceilings, yellow winded floor*, M cheerful display of kegs, cop per kettles, crystals and other utuuulls of good cuper and an apptttlzlnu fragrance auTut«d oy savory pans and bubbling, bin* IMOV«U». it wus a uluco which tboltuu- grjrguvtft entered with vxpuoUitious and left with roifrut and pleasant recollections, traveler can flnu no ituoh hospitable \Ve buvo palaoo hotels and great jjllUwl dining rooms and formality and Krundi-ur and invisible landlords und •Upuroilloiu waiters who crlliuUu your luttuuors uud, expect wcorbltuut tips for du- tog Hibutiiocomfortllku that olthuliouiul and Stag. That availing the entertain went wait ou prlnooly that lung ore the imp. per was over luilf niy fellow travolvrs wure unroarlouvly hllavloun, und the host took uooflfwiw. Delnu in no mood for ruvulry, I utolo out U)rougu tho town uud down by tho grucn leafy bunks oC tbo Tny. Whvu I veturueii Mioo of Iho vou>|>uuy hud pnidwntly goiu to bed, ollii'r«i li'tui mindful uf ttuu««raiiouti ¥r«r« luorliig ttoruuvly iu tuulr chuliit li «v«ry variety of puuturtt thut the lucouU UWt bUH>«u frame cuu atwuuia, and ouu or tuuk to bo kirk eldvin on fur- ough, were discussing the doctrine of prc- lestinatiou and eternal punishment in a )cr£ectly ntniablennd fatuous manner over veil plenished tumblers of toddy. But the chief thing to be noted is that luring my absence another ftuest had arrived. That he was a man of consequence was evident no less from his own lofty and tnperious mien than from the servile attentions of mine host. He was booted and ipurred ns though he had just alighted rom tho saddle. A silver mounted riding whip and a pair of riding gloves lay beside lira on a table, nnd he wore the loose brown •elvet coat affected by the better class of loi-Hcmen. High about his neck was a mgo stiff collar that held his head deflaut- y iu tho air and kept his ears rigorously at ittcntion. An imposing bunch of seals [angled from his fob, and his rosy gills and >ortly waist proclaimed that when he was it home be knew how to dine. His head vas bald on tbe crown, and a ragged wart nurred tbe symmetry o£ his nose, which, lowever, was flung in the air witb a sempi- ternal snort of contempt. His air told he was perfectly well aware,that when he stood his two legs supported the very pink ifcreatidn. . When I entered, lie did me the honor of sturinu bard at me, but almost immediate- y he brought the tips of bis fingers superciliously together and turned his eyes to he ceiling in a manner which said plainly IB regretted demeaning himself.with an ut- .erly insignificant aud casual stranger, and hat he would certainly not do it again. As IB was delivering himself silently but im- iressively of these sentiments and resolu- iions the landlord bustled into the room with a. bowl of steaming, fragrant toddy, a glass and a ladle, all of which be set down with becoming ceremony on a small table specially placed at the right baud of the ;reat man. The great man thereupon took lis eyes from tho ceiling and his eloquent luger tips apart and" condescended to give a grunt of approval. Thus encouraged the "landlord became adventurous. "I have taken the liberty, sir," he said in lis suavest uiauuer, with an inclination of ibebody toward Ills patron, "to put tbe icel of u lemon in it. I aye think lemon idds to the flavor of the best Glenlivat. l,et me fill your gloss, sir. There, I think you'll find that worth drinking. Iliad Sir Thomas Gordon of The Elms here the other day.

My word, a bad liver's" 'An uxly companion," said the great nan, taking a sip; "but, to say the truth, I'm not interested in Sir Thomas' biliary organs." "Faith, line mair am I, sir," promptly responded tbe host, "A man has troubles enough of bis own in this world without 'oshiu wi' other folks' livers. But, as 1 was saying, Sir Thomas happened to ho in" "Unspeakably gracious ou his part, to be sure," iuterruptetl the great man. "Xet •be fact does not interest me." "Weel, weel, sir," responded the host, with a deepening of the color in his rubicund 'uce, "I'm sure I'll be the last to fash ye with things ye dinnu want to hear. 1 only meant to say that Sir Thomas praised the toddy of the Hound and Stag." "Doubtless very gratifying," said tbe ;rcut man, taking another sip. "You'd letter have tbe bellman sent out,to apprise ;be town of Sir Thomas' compliment. Meantime if you come back in 15 minutes ['11 have u question to ask you." "My tongue's aye at your service, sir, replied the host, unable to conceal bis cha- jrin. "A man like me must wag it at tho ivillof them that pay me." Aud picking up his tray he marched out of the room with an injured air. Thu great man gazed at the retreating figure until the door closed upon it; th ju uu nodded his head with profound significant.;. "All tarred witb the same stick," ho said to himself; "all born tilathert'rs." With which sentiment he crossed his legs and lay back to contemplate the contents of hU gloss. Punctual to tbe minute, the host returned, and with an extruipely solemn countenance bowed toward the great man. The great man, moving his head slightly »o us to have a fairer view, stared without •peaking. "You told me to bo bock in 15 minutes," •aid the host, '. "It was rut her a suggestion thnn a command," returned the great Imlll- "Q U t •loco you are here, will you have the goodness to Inform ino ut what hour the highland couch starts in the morning" "BU o'clock sharp, sir."

"Possibly you may require it yet, Wbttt I wish to lay IK •that if I am poisoned with adulterations it will bo the worst) for you. Perhaps you can understand that us u mutter of self interest.

I did not sou tho great m»n tit l>r«ukfiu•'« morning, fiat no iooner had 1 t&feen my seat oh the coach than he clambeifd tip beside me. The day being chill and foggy lie was wrapped to the eyes in a great coat and an enormous woolen muffler such as the Scottish people like to hide their Beads In when the air happens to be too shrewd. "U«h, dear me, It's raw!" he remarked to the world at large as he settled back in the midst of a pile!of rugs and plaids, sublimely oblivious of the fact that he was reclining Upon me and appropriating half my space. . We were not far on our journey When the gun shone out warmly, the mists which filled the valleys and lay heavily on the wooded slopes began to rise, and some of the fairest scenes in nil fair Scotland opened to tbe sight, Tbe landscape smiled, but there was no corresponding token of geniality in the face of the pompous and taciturn individual by my side. Be so far responded to the benignancy of nature indeed as to unbutton his great coat, lower his muffler and lay himself out to the sun as if he were a-bundle of moldy hay. But even this he did out of sheer condescension, and in the process he made me suffer. He dug Into my ribs with his elbow, he flapped his coat into my face, he stamped on my toes, he rubbed himself against me, finally keeling over and lying on me as if I had been a cushion specially placed to save his bones. His pressure nearly pushed me over the side of the coach, and I made a movement to save myself. "I'll trouble you to look after your elbows,"-he said, noticing my presence for tbe first time. • "Eeally, sir," I retorted, not without a little heat, "the request might come more reasonably from me than from you." He turned his head quickly and looked daggers at me. Finding I did not melt in the heat of his g)are, he said slowly: "Young man, your impudence is amaz- ng." Then he averted his eyes and snorted angrily. "Impudence!" I repeated in astonishment. "Precisely," he answered, nudging and ipreoding himself out still farther, so that he crushed me against the iron rod at the side. "It is over whelming." 'Npt'half BO overwhelming as you, you elephant!" I retorted, giving him a heave that sent him against the passenger on tbe other side. "Keep your lubberly weight off me, or, by George, I'll make youl" At this be called lustily to the guard that I threatened to do him bodily harm, and that ho would hold the owner of the coach responsible if I were not removed forthwith. "The fellow's vicious and may do murder," he exclaimed. "I claim the protection of the responsible party in charge of thiscoach." Hereupon the guard endeavored to make peace between us, saying, bowever, that so far he saw no reason for removing me from my place. "I have only to soy, then," returned 1 the great man, "that if I should have tbe misfortune to be injured by this person you will be held accountable, for you have hud warning of his violent intentions, and if he should kill me, you, sir, will be banged as an accessory before the fact. That is the law." Thus admonished tbe guard returned to his bugle and blew lustily to keep himself in countenance, und my companion, having settled his ruffled feathers a bit, sat up, pulled out a fut notebook and began to study a page of figures, keeping, however, the corner of bis eye ou me. As lie studied a smirk of satisfaction now and again relieved the austerity of his face. I judged the figures represented some profitable investment, but little could I have guessed what that investment was. At length he closed the book, returned it to his packet, aud in spite of all tbat bud taken place once more reclined comfortably ou me. It wus now my turn to appeal to authority, so I called out, "Guard, have tbe goodness to remove this carcass!" The aggressor sot bolt upright, as it an arrow had pierced him, his face darkened by a scowl. "Such insults are intolerable," he said savagely, "I will write to the owner of this coach; I will have justice," I made no reply, only smiled at bis chagrin und stretched myself to tho limits of my space, glad that at last I hud made u definite impression. For tho rest of the journey he punctiliously kept from touching me, und though we bulk left, the coach at the sumo stopping place we did not exchange another word. When he disappeared into the villayo inn, 1 fervently hoped 1 had seen the last of him. Though I made all haste after alighting from tho couch, leaving my portmanteau in charge of the innkeeper that 1 might go nnluanmbered, aud Inking a short cut across the moors, the gloaming had fallen era I caught my first sight of tho turrets and chimney tops of Kilburnle, dim and solitary in the midst of the dusky heath. The mouutuin tops were still radiant with • waning golden light, but the valley a were already awesome with the gloom which night brings to tho haunted solitudes of the highland*. I wulked quickly, my heart beating tumultuous^, with a dizzying alternation of hopes and fears and expectations, yet as I got out among the dark ravines an eerie sensation crept along the spine and among the roots of the hair. At one polut \vhcre the path dived Into a lonely hollow, pans- ing In IU depth between a black tarn said to have no bottom aud a cairn that covered a murderer's bones, and a moor cock rose from the heather with a sudden cry of alarm, my urc-ath came in a thick gasp and my bulr rose on my head, seeming to lift my but with it. I got out of that hollow in very truth Like one that on a louoaomo road Doth walk In four unil dread. And having once turned round walks on And turns no more his hund. BOVMM ho known u frightful tlond Doth olOM behind him truiut. I set down my ftet firmly, insuring myself I was quite composed, und rusolvud not to accelerate my puce, yet not during or caring to look behind, . I reached the top with a long drawn breath of rollef, aud then my heart bound ed afresh as the lights of uiy homo shouu clearly before me for tho first time. Then I begun to run, leaping over ditches uud bowlUom almost without knowing it, but Iu splto of i)ty speud that lui>t half mile uuoiuud longer than Uiounllro journey from Kdlnburgh.

Both of his eyebrows were burned away and under each eye ,he hot iron burned a trace an inch long and a similar mark was left behind each ear. On each wrist the skin was burn<yl away for an inch and a half, while on each leg from the ankle for a distance 1 of six inches the hot iron burned almost to ;he bone. In tho region of the abdomen ;here are several severe burns, while nany of his ribs were traced with the lot metal. He will probably be crip- Jed for life. The prisoners had no reason for their diabolical treatment of the nnfortunate man. except pure maliciousness. Hirer Seven Time* Marriott. CHICAGO-, March 12.—John F.

WASHINGTON, March 13.—Advices received at the state department late Monday afternoon from Minister Thompson at Rio do Janeiro indicate the Brazilian rebellion is about ende& The dispatches from Minister Thompson! contain the information that Admiral da Gama bos jone aboard the Portuguese war vessel Mindelo now in the harbor at Bio and has sent to Resident Peixoto by the Portuguese officer an offer of surrender on condition of protection 1 for himself and followers. Two dispatches were received in cipher By the department which .ranslated read as-follows: Rio DR JANEIUO, Mkrch 12. •fresbam, Washington: Da Gam a today through the senior Portuguese nnval commander, offered to surrender to the president of Brazil providing he and his followers were guaranteed protection against punishment. THOMPSON. KlO DE JA3TEIRO, March. 12. Sfresinm: Da Gama hns gone aboard a Portuguese mau-of-war for asylum. THOMPSON. Another dispatch was received at a iate hour Monday night by Secretary 3-resham from Minister Thompson con- aining the additional information that Da G-auia asks that he and his followers be allowed to leave the country and the ives of his private soldiers be spared. It 8 regarded by prominent officials us without question that the government will accept the surrender with the term* asked for. Mark* the End of tho Rebellion. Secretary Gresham believes this marks ihe end of the rebellion. There is considerable surprise expressed hero by ;hose interested in the aifairs at Rio that the offer of surrender should have been made through the Portuguese commander,, who up to this time has not shown any particular disposition to take any land in the conflict. It is not thought that the act of the Portuguese in receiving da Gama is necessarily an act of lympathy with the insurgents. Tho Portuguese are said to recognize a principle of international law, now obsolete, jy which right of asylum, as it is called, s granted temporarily by a neutral power to a defeated belligerent. This right of asylum is not recognized of late fears by most nations, except in cases >f half civilized people, and, moreover, ihe Brazilian insurgents have never been recognized by any body as belligerents, iherefore some speculation as to the exact meaning of the action of the Portuguese commander is heard. Minister Memlouca Unwilling to Talk. Minister Mendonca admitted that he lad received news of the surrender, but 10 was unwilling to give out any news concerning da Gama's offer of surrender or discuss the probable 'action of the Brazilian government. He, said, however, he had no doubt final settlement bad been made by the time he was speaking, or would certainly be made soon. Notice of tho intention of the Brazilian fleet to begin an active attack on the insurgents' fleet had been given Sunday noon to neutral forces in the harbor. This notice was given 48 hours before the tiring >va$ to begin. According to this arrangement firing could not begin until Tuesday noon. Da Gama's surrender was made, therefore, fully 8-1 hours before an attack was to bo expected. The offer, in fact, followed tho first actual show of determination on the part of the Brazilian government. LATEST NEWS FROM HONOLULU. Quoiiu Ulluokitlaul Not Willing to Go on Hie SUml m* » Wltuuu.

Smith claimed ho intended to subpoena tho ex- qneon as a witness. Yesterday afternoon tho coses against Smith were all dropped on account, it is claimed, of his intention of forcing Liliuokalani to take Die witness stand.
