OJSBUJtY, N. C, AUGUST 17, 1854.
Far bcyondJhe common heiglit, with
a broad and capacious chest, his figure
still bore evidence of gigantic Btsength.
As he sato bowed uowu with his
head bent till it hnng above his
knees, and his sinewy hands laid up
on his lap, with his long thin pale fin
gers intertwined with one another, and
his sunken meditative eyes fixed upon
the floor, his air was so stern that the
maiden almost trembled before him.
Stiff as the quills of this fretful porcupine,
his bristliug hair grizzled with age, rose
above his huge massive forehead, which
was deeply and thickly furrowed with
wrinkles. Hi face was long, withered
und darkened by exposure; hi long and
acquilino nose iidiled dereriniiiatiou and
expression to his features, while his lull
projecting nether lip gave additional
harshness to his countenance.
Dora gazed silently ujMin him for a mo
ment and then advanced to the spot
where the old . man sat. Hearing the
rustliii" of her dress, he turning suddon-
