When a commotion of the elements supervenes, as frequently happens in t: ted regions, when the air is rent and the rocks around are shattered by tin eh I, it requires no great stretch of the imagination to fancy it is the fabricated bolts ol these grim artisans, that have now, as in the davs of the poets, caii action.

When this occurs? there IS a mortal (-ontest for the inside, and one pushes the other into the gulf below. Sometimes the path turns round a short angle, and when the traveller has accomplished the passage of the periloui st before him a dark and dismal chasm, over which his horse's neck p: top would precipitate him.

Hence, in going down, the motion of the animal is sliding, and the :th horror sees the beast, to which he trusts his lit ready to shoot over the edge of the narrow road, without a possibility of stopping or restraining itself. Vet such is the sure-footed sagacity of these mountain-steeds, that m iy occur, and they glide down for several hundred yards, through a steep and tortuous descent, dexterously turning round | projecting rock before them, which seems to stand in the way for the express purpose of pushing him over the edge.
