POOE TOM'8 FATE At the foot of the Ozark Mountains, where the rocky slopes extended far into the cultivated settlements, and at no great distance from the bank of the Mul berry, which foamed and reared against the sharp ridges of ice with which the extraordinary severe winter threatened to imprisoned it, two white hunters walked wrapped in their blankets, along the stream, and seemed to be looking for a place where they could cross to the other side. They were two powerful looking fel lows, as they walked on with their ritles on their shoulders, and the elegant fringed leggins, the closely-fitting and carefully soled moccasins showed that they had assumed the habits of the woods and not of those 44 land hunters'' who, especially at that day, had begun , traversing the western part of the State | in order to find out the most favorably situated districts, and purchase, or at least lay claim to them. 44 Bill," one of them at last said, as he stopped, 44 our searching is of no u?e? you see I was right; the stream here is too wide for us to find a tree layin - across it, and if I really went to work with my little tomahawk, and felled one of the nearest plane trees, it would not be long enough. Besides a heavy storm is gathering behind us, and I think we should not do wrong were we to make arrangements for passing the night bet ter than the last; it will be bitter cold." 44 It's very annoying, though, Bill," answered his brother crossly, " that we should not reach the ravine over there to-night, for in the first, place we should find famous quarters in one of the num erous caves, and then, besides, I should have liked to look for bears; there are sure to be some there. The water's too cold for us to swim across, and the storm will not be a trifling one ; so then, to work; here are old trees enough ljing about, and a bark roof can be easily made." 44 There are almost too many trees ly ing about," Tom replied, look all around him, 44 and thoso still standing seem rot ten and ready to fall. 1 do not much like the thought of coming here, for you know the story father told once about such a place." "Nonsense! Bill said laughingly. 44 Can we tind a better camping place? The little stream runs along at our feet, therms plenty of wood clese at hand, the young trees will fumish famous poles, and the bark there is first rate for a roof." Tom raado no further objection; the spot locked too inviting, and they were booth soon engaged raising a rough shel ter that night at least, which could alford them refuge against the collecting storm. Under such good hands the work was easily accomplished, and the next half hour found both under their quickly erected roof, watching the pieces of meat broiling in the tire. "It s strange how cold it has suddenly turned,'* Tom at length broke the silence, "only look, the water in the tin pan is frozen quite hard, and the wind has chopped round to the north east; it blows confoundedly sharp, too." '?Let it blow,'' Bill yawned, as ho wrapped himself closely in the folds of his blanket; 44I am tired and want to sleep, Tom, lay a couple of boughs on the fire before you turn in, and the one first awake to-morrow must arouse the other." Midnight was past, and the firo had nearly expired, but the two brothers slept firmly, and the icy north wind that howled over the snow-clad hills into the valley, could not disturb their slumber. Heavy masses of clouds had, however, collected together from various quarters; darkly threatening they brooded over the rustling forest, and the stately trees shook and bowed their leafless branches as if in timid forebodings of the ap proaching storm. A bright Hash of lightning suddenly burst from the black heavens, ancLa terrific peal of thunder al most. instantaneously followed the mes senger of destruction. One cf the terrible winter storms was impending, and the unchained hurricane howled and tore through the narrow mountain ravines. 44Bill!" cried Tom, springing up in horror, 44Bill, get up; wj dare not lie down; see how the old trees quiver; and you hear, there's one of them crack ing !" ?'Hallo!" Bill replied, as lie qaickly threw off his blanket, *4has it caught us ? Hi! Tom, lay hold of the roof; I'm bless ed if the confounded no.thw?$Ler won't take it along with it." His fear was not entirely unfounded, for at the same instant roCh a furious blast burst from the opposite valley that it half uncovered their resting place in a second, and burning ashes and sparks were carried far away in the gloom of night. A lightning flash again burst forth from the clouds, and the thunder deadened the sound of the howling storm. Then it suddenly seemed as if the whole earth was torn from its foundations; far, far away on it came, like the crash of a thousand cannons; then nearer and near er it roared, spreading wild and terrible overthrow and harrowing desolation around. Almighty God, a hurricane !" Tom cried, starting up in terror, for at the f?ame moment the storm reached them. Tuc giant trunks, which had withstood centuries, bowed like thin twigs, and with one blow that struck terror to the hearts oi the listeners, the whole forest was niuwcd level with the earth by the hand of ihe Almighty. The hurricane ragrd further and fur ther with frightful velocity: /or miles around it overthrew the tali oaks, and hurled them like reeds to ti>e ground: for miles around it marked its pa h with desolation and destruction; but filencc. grave-like silence, followed in its track, and rested over the widely-scattered trees; not a breath was stirring, and the calmness of death, after this horriivin" outbreak of the elements, affected the l?oor heart of a mortal with more ago nizing shudder than it Jiad felt even in the most terrible fury of the storm. Bill had miraculously escaped, without oven the slightest injury: clinging tight ly to an immense tree that had previous ly fallen; another oak that had fell across it only served to saye him, as it guarded him fiom the other continually falling branches and smaller trees; but now, at. soon as the first most pressing danger passed, he jumped up and cried, filled with terror, to his brother: "lom brother Tom?do answer. Tom. Great God! has such a terrible end fallen to your fchare? '' No! it would ha\e been better for him if that had been his lot; he still lived, and his weak voice at co great distance, struck the hunter's attentive ear. 44 All-merciful Heavens !" the latter ciied^ when he had (juickly leaped over a couple of trees lying in his way, and with a bio zing pine torch in his'hand. stood before him he sought. " All-merciful lJcavens !'J he repeated in almost maddening agony, and covered his lace with his hands, for close to hiia. as pale as a corpse, with both his thighs buried beneath an immense oak, which was shattered from top to bottorn, lay his lom. his brother, the playmate of his youth, tho darling of his heart. It - very cold, the unhappy man whispered, and looked up imploringlv to the hunter, who apparently incapable of any farther movement, stood uear him as if hewn out of stone?"it's very cold. Bill ; can't you bring me a little fire? ? The words broke the charm which seemed to possess his half unconscious brother. ??Tom, Tom."' he cried, as he threw himself with groans on the mutilated body of his dearest companion, 44 You hurt me, Bill, the latter en treated ; my arms pain me, and it is so cold.7' "Wait, you shall have fire in a few seconds." Bill now cried, as he sprung hastily up, "lie there a minute longer" and 111 fetch you some ashes, and then help you up?only a moment's paticnce:" and in haste he flew back to the still burning camp-fire. Ah ! he did not no tice the features of the unhappy man, a-. he begged him to have patience. lie hurriedly collected all the ashes and burning wood his anus could hold?the llames scorching his hunting *hirt and hands?he did not notice it, and flew back to his brother's side, plenty of drift wood lay around, and in a few mo moments a bright, cheering tire flared by the side of tho tree, under whose giant weight the }*>or fellow lay buried aliye. Bill now regarded with shudder the terrible scene, and madly threw himself on the tree, which a hundred men could not have raised, and tried his utmost strength on an impossibility. " Bill!" Tom gently begged him, " come here; come, give me your hand ; that's right. And now, Bill, do you really love me ?"' A convulsive grasp of his brother's hand answered the question ; speak ho could not, for the tears he had sup pressed with difiiculty suffocated tvery sound. ? " Will you do me a service ?" Tom implored, drawing the unresisting man closer to him. "A service!" Bill whispered?"a service! What can you ask that I would not do for you if it was in my power?" " You promise to do its ?" 44 What is it ?" the hunter asked, in terror. " Take your rifle," Tom begged,44 and put an end to my sufferings." 44 Tom!' the brother cried, as he sprung up in horror. 44 Put an end to my sufferings," the unhappy man entreated. "Bill! brother ! if you ever loved me, prove it now. Do not let me perish here, slowly and hor ribly." 44 I will sive you if it costs me my life, ' Bill cried. 441 will return with assistance this very night." " That is not possible," the poor fel low replied, sorrowfully shaking his head. 44 The next settlement is by the nearest road, at least fifteen miles from here; but the road you would have to take to go round the rooks and ravines, is twenty ; and if you come back, if you brought fifty men with you, what help can they give me?" Bioth my thighs are. shattered, and the nearest doctor lives at Little Rock, hundieds of miles from here, and whither we 6carce know the direction. Bill will you let me lie here for days, and afterwards see me l*rUh mihcrably 44 Ask my own life, and you shall have it with pleasure; but don i reuuire such ? ? ?> !'? i <- " ... .. 0 THE WEEKLY STAR Thw PxeeAot family ui Newi ilnini i greater variety of tkuradi mb be found in any tuber?4e published aa Itn?le copy, per ro CLTM.

" And do you call that murder ? Oh. Bill!" be continued, " could you only fancv the pain I am now Buffering, you would take compassion?would not 1st me beg in vain " 4* I will give you a rifle: don't make me my brother's murderer."

' "What did you lately do to Nestor when the boar had torn him so terribly! ' ?' I shot him." " He was your favorite dog." Bill only answered with sobs. 44 And you loved him more than met" Tom now asked. almost reproachfully. 44 Oh! why did I not heed your warn lug wheu we la*t night reached this un happy spot? Why did I not avoid the decayed trc es that threatened us on all s.des ? Why 44 Bill' the unhappy man interrupted him, " do you mean to free me from my tortures ?" 441 will!" the poor fellow sobbed on his brother's neck. They held one aa otlier in a cold embrace for a lon^ while, but when Tom tried to unloose his hold, his brother only held him the tighter. Day at length broke in the east, and the sun shone on the chaos of wildly-soat* tored trees around. 44 Let us part," Tom whispered; " be a man," 44 W ell, then, be it so. I see you are right. It is impossible to save you. I know, too, tha I should have asked the same of you in a similar case ; and you would not have refused me. Pray to G?>d for the last time, and pray too for me, that he may forgive me the the mur der of my brother!" Bill tottered away to fetch his rifle, hut he returned in a few moments with a firm and certain step. With his run in his hand, he swung himself with nis right hand over the shattered trunks, and soonst<.?od again by the 6ide of his brother who looked afiectionately in his face. ??I am ready." said the latter, with a smile, 44do not tremble, and God reward vou for your kindness?good bye !** lie i tiered him his hand as he turned away his face. "Brother!" the tortured brother cried, in agony, and threw himself again on his breast. Once again they held each other iu a elosc embrace, till Tom entreated gently, 44Do not delay any longer." With a hasty bound the hunter stood on his feet, raised his rifle to his cheek, and lay the next moment unconscious by the side of the brother he had shot. What more have I to tell? Shall T describe how he awoke, and piled branch upon branch on his brother's corps, so that the wolf and panther might not fasten their greedy teeth in the beloved remains ?how he tottered away and wrestled with death for many months in the wild dreams of fever, carefully nursed by kind friends? No! enough of this sorrowful tale. Ilis brother's blood-osv ertd face did not long trouble him in his nightly dreams, or cause him to spring in terror from his bed, and try to fly. On an expedition against some plundering Creeks. a compassionate bullet put an end to his life, and kind friends buried him where he fell. But his memory is still retained in that neighborhood, and when a hunter camps at night, and turns an enquinng glance towards the giant trunks which menacingly surround him, then a gentle prayer of even the roughest and wildest of the band arises and whis pers, 44(.iod preserve me from poor Tom's fate."
