At the time when the Crescent, over thrown under the walis of Vienna, be gan to grow pale in Hungary, the chief of the Erlau Guerillas was Leikcm a young and fiery patriot. He constantly harrassed the garrison of Eriau, llatvan, Sznolnok, and other places, by capturing their convoys and defeating their troops. On one occasion he accomplished a very successful expedi ion by unexpectedly falling apon a treasure convoy in Gyon gyos. on its way from Erlau to Buda, and cutting down the whole escort. While his men were engaged in a com bat with the Turks ia the streets of the town, Leikem heard a cry for help from a neighboring house. lie leaped off hi horse, rushed in, and fomd a Turkish soldier ill-treating a Hungarian girl \Y ith a stroke of his flashing sword be split the infidel's bead, and liberated her from his grasp. Exhausted and sublut d by terror, the girl lay senseless on the ground. Leikein, with the aid of some women, soon restored her consciousness The girl was the very type of Hunga rian beauty, with black eyes and hair, the charming expression of her face heightened by a gleam of gratitude towards her deliverer. To the voun^ man she seemed the fairest of a'll the maidens he ever beheld. The girl, too, on recovering, thought the chief just what she, in her lively fancy, had ima gined a true Magyar hero to be?tall, stately, with sparkling eves, the terroi of the enemy, and the friend and willing protector of the helpless and unhappy. In our country, love soon takes loot, and increases with a rapid and maivel ous growth. The youn^ man remained but a short time with the maiden ; still it sufficed to fill their h.-arts with a sen timent not easily to be effaced. Leikeui left the girl, whose name was Irma, with a promise of soon returning, but thai promise was more easily made than ful filled : for scarcely had the news of th< loss of tht costly convoy reached Erlau. than the infuiiated Pasha *ent a stronr garrison to Gyongyos, and ordered a hot pursuit after the oold guerilla chief; so that Leikcm, a nmc, was an unwif ing prisoner in his inaccessible lurking place in the Matra. As a punishment for the loss of the money, a contribution was levied on U* town of Gyongyos ; and at the same time, to insult the inhabitants in their rocst sacred feelings, the Pasha com manded the delivery of twelve of their most beautiful daughters for the haren. of the Pasha of Buda. The consterna tion of the poor town's people at this twofold outrage knew no bounds: but, conscious of their weakness, they ?ub mitted to the sentence, and as neither entreaties nor promises could soften the inflexible L urkish commander, presented | their girls lor selection to the officer sent for that purpose from Erlau. Among the number chosen was the unhappy lrma. Leiktiu speedily received this dreadful intelligence His instant determination was to prevent the maidens from being carried off: but, for the moment, he wa& quite at a loss to devise a plan likely t<> prove succc-sful against the numerous garrison of Gyongyos. An the midst ot this dilemma, he was interrupted by the arrival of a messenger from his uncle, the prior of a monastery of Carmelites in this neighbornood, summoning the chief to an immediate conference, which Leikem did not delay attending to, knowing his* I uncle, who had already often assisted him with good advice during his expe ditions, to be a wise, good, and patriotic man. He found the prior in great excitement as to the fate of the unfortunate town. The monk conjured Leikein, by his Christian faith and his love for bis coun I try, now to show what enthusiasai the Hungarian was capable of in the defence of his rights and his countrywomen. He then proposed to him to go to the town dressed as a monk, and there to agree upon a scheme with the inhabitants 1 he first part of this proposal was easily I effected, as a f. w hours previously, Dulo, the father of Irma, had sent to the mon | astery for a priest to pray for his daugh ter, who was then dangerously ill. Lei kem was for a moment unmanned by this sad information, bat by a violent eilort he choked his feelings, and declared his readiness to comply with the wish of his uncle. He hastily put on a cowl and left the monastery mounted upon a mule. He had the good fortune to pass the Turkish outposts unremarked, and ar rived at the dusk of the evening accom panied by Dulo's messenger, in Gyon gyos. With the capuchin drawn over his head, Leikem entered lrma's room. She was much changed during the few weeks I that had elapsed since he saw her, and was so much exhausted that the pre tended monk had to bend over her to J catch her whispered words. He could not long carry on his disguise, and was fyced to exclaim with all the fervor of I his noble heart. "I am not a monk, lrma, but thy I warrior, and am come to cure and to save thee; for as 1 live thou shalt not fall into the hands of the infidels." At the sound of that voice, the tone of which she had never forgotten, the girl thought she dreamt, but, again looking into his truthful, manly face, she saw that all was a happy reality, and she seemed to live anew. The guerilla chief likewise disclosed his secret and his intention to her father, who, cheered by his presence, instantly stole away to others of his trier. *ud brave neighbors, inviting them to meet at his house. The men came. As it was supposed that the escort, with the tribute of the town, on proceeding to Buda, would halt for the night at the fortress of llatvan, half way between Gyougyos and Buda, at the proposal of leikem a daiing plan was projected and | reavlved upon.

Two days after an order caw to give up the tribute money and women, Tbe mayor, by presents, obtained the pen?is Mon of the commander that the maidens should be allowed to remain veiled dur ing their journey, until th y were intro duced into the presence of the Pasha of Buda. All happened as they wished. At the moment of their departure they were taken in closed litters from their dwellings, and left the town under a strong escort, accompanied by the fer vent prayers of the inhabitants for tfieir safety. As they proceeded very slowlr, tliey did not reach Hatvan till late m the evening, whereupon the Aga resolved not to go any further that night. While preparations were making for the accom modation of the unusual guests, the commander of tbe fortress attempted oi-ce or twice to pay a visit of ceremony to the maidens; but the matron in wfcose care they were, an energetic Hungarian woman remained inflexible, and after a short contest, rescued them from the presence of a very unwelcome visiter. At midnight, when all was hushed abound, (he sentinel at the door of the hou-e where the maidens res ed had he been m re vigilant must have heard the opening ot a window ab-ivc his htad, and seen a humin form descending. The sentinel, however, dreaming perhaps of Mahommed's paradise, remarked neithtr the slight noise nor the figure in whom the chief is easily recognised, which by legrees glided down the high wall, till it stood like a menacing shadow behind him. He^e a heavy fall was heard fol lowed by a du'l groan ; then all became quiet as before. The sentinel beiug no longer in ihe way, eleven other forms let themselves down fir ?m the window, one and all bearing greater resemblance to | stalwart warriors than to gentle maidens. Leikem hastily gave his commands in a suppressed voice; and after leaving two men at the door of the dwelling, they vanished into the dark and deserted stmt *hich led to the east gate. There they surprised the small guard with equal felicity, and cut men down before they could even think of resistance. But in spite of their quick and cautious pro -^eedings, they were defected by a Turk ish ocatinel who fired his gun, which aroused the others at their posts on the walls, and the alarm drum soon re-echoed from every quarter of the place. No tin?v ? ?o ?? io ko i?st. The gate was forced open wi:h all speed, and the Arawbr'dge let down Leikem gave a shrVl whistle, and on its repeated *t a distance from the fortress, in s&L time a band of one hundred and fifty brave men rushed in through the open gate. Leikem placing himself at their bead, led to a decisive attack on the bar racks, where the Turks already began to rally in overwhelming numbers. The battle ensued in the market place, where the dwelling of the commander and the barracks stood, and where the mass of the garrison was arrayed. Leikem's ir resistible charge, and the death of the Pa>ha. who fell at tbe beginning of the engagement, soon discouraged the Turks; darkness and confusion did the rest; and after a short and sanguinary massacre they surrendered to the mcrcy of the vic tories Hungarians. The garrison still numbered six hundred men, who were greatly surprised to find that thev were conquered by so small a band. You will have already guessed that, instead of tbe supposed maidens, Leikem and eleven of his men, disguised in feu ale attire, formed the party so carefully escorted to the for tress, which enabled them so success fully to accomplish their hazardous un dertaking. At the news of the fall of the Hatvan. the greater part of the inhabitants of Gyongyos tied to that stronghold, to neek shelter against the vengeance of the Turks, and they were determined, in case of a serious attack; to die under the ruins of its walls. Among the arrivals were Irma and her fa* her Leikem, now commander ot the fortress, the fruit of his bold enterprise, celebrated his marriage with his beloved Irma, who, by the way. was accompanied to the altar b) her eleven beautiful com panions so gallantly rescued by the bride | groom. _ A Discovery we have been Waiting foh.?To have to kill an ox in order to make a pair of boots is a clumsy thing; and we have waited some time to hear of some invention which will superoede leather for the feet, as wool and cotton, linen and silk, have superseded the skins of animals for the rest of the human dress.
