To persons maihmj Letters tor California and the Te ri
todies of it'tuskitvjton and Oregon : Thousand nf letters sent
to the Pacific coast Itecome dead letters. To remedy tins evil
ths I'ost OIiie Department, under the authority of Conirress. has
;l i)fful as an auxiliary to its operations the following plan for
simultaneously publishing at esich and every post office in the
Pacific region, in a list called " Paeitic Mail List," the names of
p rsoii- t whom U tters have leen sent by mail to post olBoes in
Ciilifor ii i and the Territories of Washington and Oregon. By
1 system, a l.-tter may be sent to any post oflice in the Pacific
nil fr a person whose location is unknown, save the mere
ftwr ih:'.t lie is somewhere in California or the Territoiies of
ant vt ashintrion ; n ine letter uepuousneu in ukm-uctic
List, its ultimate reception by the person for whom it is
i-U' u '.rd wLUoo rendered highly probable- To enable those who
nay desire to extend i their Pacific correspondents the advau
ta.'es Urns offered, the following illustration is given:
suppose it is wMil to send to. the Sacramento post office a
1 tier f r Gow ViK,n, who emijrrafrxl to California from Pike
county, Miss-.i.ri, out it ' feare;l that he may have chansred his
l'-KT' tioi-. ami ! ki may not receive the letter. In this case,
direct t'-e letter to George Wilson, (late of Pike county, Missouri)
t?:jcr-i'!i:t!te., KLu ruin- Then, in rder to publish the letter iu
tho Pacific Mail iJ'st, copy the. address of the l-.tter uin a
piece of pnper t card, aud enclose the card, together with a
thr'e-cem postage stmp, in au envelope to the Pacific Mnil
., N. V. 1 j.sit the l iter, an usual, iu the mail for Cali
f riil.i. and at the same Uu- Iron the envelope, containing the
curd 'o publish the letter, in the mad for New Vork. From
the ad.'-ess on the card thus received at the New York post office,
the nai ;i Gori;e Wilsvin, will be entered in tts appropriate place
in th: i'-icifie Mail List, which is printed and seut by mail to
each and every postmaster in California and the Territories of
Oregon and Washington, and by them posted in a conspicuous
place in th-ir r-spective offices. The list thus being distributed
over the entire Paci&c region, George Wilson may at once learn
from it that a letter for him has beeu sent to the Sacramento
post ;Tiee. No person of a'similar name will receive the letter,
f-r the address on it points out that it is intended for George
Wilsuu, late- of L'ike county, Missouri. Thus many letters will
I rec.-ived that would otherwise le transmitted to the dead
The envelopes containing the advertising cards sent to the
Pacific Mail List, New York, pay twwtage like prdinary mail
matter, and must be pre-paid. The addresses of letters copied
on th ? pieces of paper or cards should be written in a plain and
distinct manner. The three-cent postage stamp enclosed in the
envelops defray the expenses of publication, and must hot be
pastel to the curds, but simply enclosed with them. In the Bb
sence -f itase stamps, three-cent coins may be substituted.
It is lielieved that this circular ha3 been drawn up so explicitly
as to require no explanations ; but should this prove not to re
the case, postmasters will take notice that all interrogatories
must le addressed to the Pacific Mail Li'sf, New York, and not
to the department.
The tirst of this series' of lists will accompany the mail of May
5:h, and will be forwarded by each succeeding mail.

Mr. Woods has my authority to put his plan, as above, in

requested to give the circular a conspicuous place in their, res

A THRILLING SKETCH.
THE LAWYER'S RRIDE.
Old Judge Pemsen, of Cowan, was -fond of telling
his early experience at the bar. My first case, iie
would say, came upon me unexpectedly, after I -had
it aited a considerable tune for a client. Ine way l
came to get it, was this: .
A young girl, Helen Montressor, was to be tried at
bur County Court for stealing a breastpin, valued at
four dollars, and twenty dollnrs ni gold, from the
trunk of her employer, James Wesley, merchant in
iha tiwv ti r.r ItAifrl rho tbAft which ws lipffvtfHl
five weeks before, occasioned quite a talk at the time,
as the girl was beautiful, and . esley and lua wife
Eunice were anythiug but that, .besides being gen- J
erally detested. People said Helen had been treated
shamefully by ker mistress, who was jealous of her;
and it was even hinted that there had been loul play
in the prosecution for theft. The subsequent trial of
a gang of counterfeiters and horse-thieves had so ab
sorbed "public attention, that the case of Helen Mon
tressor was forgotten, and no one t-eeuied to care tor
her fate. But when she was placed in the prisoner a
box, her beauty riveted every eve, and when the
Judge asked her who was her counsel, and she mod
estly replied she had none and no money to pay a
lawyer, there was not member oi.the bar present
-who would not willingly have undertaken her case.
The Judge, after looking round for a moment fixed his
eye on me, and s.ud, . Mr. Kemaen, you will please
act as this young ladv s counsel. L started astliougu
I had been shot. Luckily a juror was taKeu in, auu
the. Court adjouruel till ten next morning, or I am
afraid I should have made sad work with my client's
case, r . .
As I left the court-room I looked at my watch : it
was eleven, so I had but twenty-three. hours to. pre
pare. r I called upon the District Attorney and asked
to tee the indictment, and the evidence taken before
the Justice of-the Peace. - As he tumbled over a pile
of documents in search of the papers he said, . The
Judge must have a spite against you, nemsen, to put
you in such a tight place, and you a green hand.
No otfence," he ad Jed, as hoooserved the rising color
of my cheek no offence; I. simply meant that you I
are inexperienced, lucre are tne aocumenis; lase
them home with you only le sure to bring them to
Court to-morrow. You will see that your client has
not a chance."
I was annoyed at this light reference to my client,
for whom I already entertained deep respect, and be
lieved innocent; but I said nothing. Hastening to
my office, I locked myself in and commenced the
analysis of my case The evidence consisted of the
testimony of James and Eunice Wesley, Sarah Brown
a seamstress, Charlotte Bovee, a -domestic, . and
Thomas Hannegiu, a man-of-all-work, employed by
the Wesleys. Hannegan's evidence seemed straight
forward and truthful, and so did the servant girl's.
I made up my mind that they were not untrieudly to
my client, and that I would seek an interview with
them, although it would necessitate a journey to Bed
ford. In Miss Brown's testimony I at once detected
intense malice, and determined to harrow her unmer
cifully in cross-examination. . Wesley's evidence was
similar in style and matter to that of Hannegan; but
Mrs; Wesley's was full, discursive and acrimonious
such as that, ' She had always believed Helen to be
a viper, but her husband upheld the trollop. To
my mind the case seemed clear; Mrs. Wesley herself
had. put those things in Helen's trunk. , -
I next went to the Court House and requested Mr.
Mace, the Sheriff, who lived in the wing of the build
ing, to introduce me to the prisoner. . He conducted
me to her celL Although the bolts clanged heavily
as they sprang from the locks, bur entrance did not
seem to attract her attention. She was stauding with
clapped hands before her grated "window, . gazing at
the sky. The Sheriff touched 'her arm, and said,
Miss Montressor, Mr. Remseu, is the lawyer who is
to manasre vour case, ami he wants to see you.' She
started, turned quickly round,' and made an inclina
tion of her head, to indicate her readiness to. listen,
but she said not a word. The Sheriff left the cell,
and we were alone. Conscious that every moment
was precious, I said:
' Miss Montressor, we must throw aside ceremony
and communicate frankly upon this painful business.
I believe you are innocent. The thing. is to .prove
you so. This promises to be difficult; but I a u not
without hope. If you will tell me frankly what your
experience has beeu with the Wesleys, my task may
be lightened.' .
I then put a series of questions, . and learned she
was fifteen years old; that she had lived with Mrs.
W esley, who had been married about, eight years;
that she had lived with a kind old gentleman, named
Gregory, who'taught her to call him" grandpa; that
Mrs. Wesley, who was then called . Miss Naesmith,
lived with Mr. Gregory, also? that he .seemed afraid
of Miss Xaesmith ; tjiat Miss Naesmith inherited vail
his" property and married Mr. Wesley about a month
after he died; that she told her never to -f. all him
"grandpa any more, for he wasn't any relation to her;
that the day on which :old Mr. . Gregory died he gave
her a sealed packet, and told her not to let Eunice see
it, but to give it to a certain lawyer, when he returned
to town,Jbr it would make her a rich young Jady,
and then he cried and said he had let Eunice have
her own way too much ; that she fell asleep with the"
packet in her lp, and when she wokeupit was gone,
and she never dared ask any questious about it; that
Mrs. Wesley hated her, and beaUher, and treated her
like a slave, and that she sometimes , thought of
drowning-herself, she was so miserable; that Mr.
Wesley said improper things fo her; that he was a
bad man, but weak and under hw wife's control; that
the day on which her trunk was searched, she was
on an errand to the minister's, was gone about-an
hour and a half, And on her return was taken up
stairs to see her trunk opened before she had pulled
, off her bonnet and ishawl ; then she was sure Mrs.
Wr esley had put things in her trunk, while she was
.out, because she (Helen) had overhauled it that
morning, and they were not in then; but whether
Mr. Wesley knew about it she could not say, although
she rather thought he did, because Tie looked guilty
when his wife was opening the trunk. -
lelling the poor girl to cheer up, I went to the
Sheriff's sitting-room, wjiere I found Mrs. MaceV -I
at once informed her that in my opinion Miss Mon
tressor was a persecuted girl, and hoped she would
try to cheer her up, go that she could enter the court
room with a good "heart on the morrow; this the
kind-hearted woman promised to do, and I hastened
to my office. My brain "was in a whirl. Gregory

young lady its mysterious disappearance ! What
could all this mean ? Was old Mr. Gregory really

and testament, bequeathing his property tocher
And had Eunice Naesmith, now Wesley, stolen it from
the child as she slept, she might clutch the property

way about what ? I felt certain that I" had . got on
the track of great villainy, and thought I could un

Helen, and her desire to blast the poor girl's? char-
acter. a ner. spending a nail hour in arranging my
plans, I ordered a carriage and drove to Bedford..
- It was two 'when I reached the 'village. : I wished
first to see Hannegan, Wesley's serving man. i By
maKing a rew cautious inquiries at the tavern, and
disbursing a half dollar to the hostler, Hannegan was
Boon in '" my room. He was pleased to find I was
ueicn s inena, and on my promising him never to-
let what he had said get to Mrs. -.Wesley's ear, he
told me she had treated the poor girl like a dog; that
he had seen her strike Helen, and heard her threaten
to kill her, and to ruin her reputation; and that he
believed the breastpin and money had been put into
thetrunk by the old catamaran herself. - - r
He stated what Helen's behavior "was when the
articles were found in her truik, and described the
breastpin and money, The latter consisted of four
half eagles, one of which had .a hole in it, that had
been made byMr. Murch, the jeweler; so Mrs. Wesley
could string on a ribbon, for a birthday present for
the minister's little boy; and that was one way. Mrs.
Wesley ;knew the money was hers. He also gave me
a. letter sijfnedEiinic Gregory, that h had found in
the yard that day, and wliich he maintained waa In
: Mrs. Wesley's hand-writin That had made aim '
and to-had thought she might .
have been some relation to old Mr. Gi-egory.who died,'
and there must have been something bad to "make her
1 change her name. " r . . . ;
This information made a deep impression oh my
mind taken in connection with what Helen had told
me; besides the name Eunice Gregory seemed floating -in
my memory as though I had seen it connected with
some event which had faded from recollection, 4 and
was dimly recalled. .- .

None at all,' he replied. .
I turned to depart. : At that mpment Wesley en
terefl the shop and tf-as accosted by the jeweler, who
gave me a wink to indicate who he was. We had
never before met, so I regarded him at my leisure.
He was an evil-looking man. . Over his left eye was,
a queer-shaped scar, which rah crookedly across his
forehead. The instant I saw the scar, I felt as though ;
the whole thing was clear. The scar, the description
of which I so well remembered, brought the whole
story freshly to my mind. I remembered now the :
name of Eunice Gregory the child murderess and
there stood her acwoinnliee under an assumed name.
crl.mce. "I hastened

my room, and determined to pass the entire night, u
necessary, in preparation; for the contest. itI wished
to clear my client of tlie charge made agamst her,
expose the Wesleys and oblige them to mike restitu
tion to tlie wronged and pillaged orphan. . ' '
I ransacked my memory to find something tangible
concerning the past career of Eunice Gregory and her
accomplice, but could find nothing. '. I had read the
st.rv in-inv vp;s.r rmfnrp in a" newspaper, the uauie Ol
which I could not remember.

the Wesleys were the same parties; and snouia i -mention
my suspicions in court, the District Attorney
would scout them as ridiculous and malicious inven
tions of my own, and the Judge would charge the
jury to pay no heed to them. I must sap the char-
acters of the Wesleys in my cross-examinations of
their witnesses, and thus try to effect a breach suffi
cient to justify a direct assault, on a, charge of con
spiracy against Helen; anl crush James Wesley, on
the "witness stand. . And I -wove my meshes for the
victim," until the moruing sun rays streamed through
my windows. ' , ,
"The cwurt was opened, a jury empanelled, the case
called, Helen Montressor placed in the prisouers box, .
and the District Attorney's telling, merciless opening
of the case completed, in what seemed, to'bebut a
few minutes of time, Helen seemed to loot more in- ;
nocent than ever, and I resolved that full justice ,
should be done her. if my resources could compass
such a result.' It is in such a hour that the lawyer r
feels the honor and dignity of his position it is then
that he also feels its responsibility. . - - . . .
The first witness w;is Charlotte Boyce. She had ;
been called by her. mistress to go up and see Helen s;
truuk searched ; she went up and saw the breastpin -and
money found in it tucked away in one corner.
By my cross-examinations I elicited the; fact that'
Helen had just come home from an errand (onhich
she had been sent over an hour,) when her trunk
was searched, and had on her bonnet and shawl; that
she looked quite innocent and unconcerned until the '
things were found, and that she seemed astonished. ;
On dismissing the witness, I gazed at the jury, but
they s it with stern faces as though resolved that
nothing should make them elear the culprit. I called
Miss Boyce back, saying I had forgotten a very im
portant point "This "excited some attention,- and

Because Mrs. Vresley beat her once with a largo
club, and threatened to kill her and was scolding her.
But don't ask me any more questions," she suddenly
exclaimed, or I shall lose my place!"
I danced at Mrs. Wesley, - and saw that .she was
regarding her servant with a look of intense malig
nity, and to.annoy her, I appealed to the Court to
protect the witness against the threatening looks Of
her mistress. This brought all eyes' to a focus on
Mrs. Wesley's ugly countenance, and; she turned
fairly white with indiguation. The Judge told the
witness to speak without fear, and if. she .lost her
place by telling the truth, she would find plenty of
better ones. Being satisfied with the imprewsion
made, I "told the witness she might go, and the Dis
trict Attorney permitted her to pass without question
ing. r - . ' . : .
The next witness was Miss Sarah Brown, the seam
stress a rat-eyed, hatchet-faced, dapper little crea-.
ture." She was at work f -r Mrs. Wesley at the,Jime
the theft was discovered. She met Helen the day be
fore the trunk was searched, coming out of her mis
tress's room, and slie looked so guilty she suspected
she hat! beeu doing something wrong. The same day
Mrs.. Wesley spoke to her about "the things - being:
gone, and she tol I her suspicions. Thereupon she
thought it would be a good plan to search Helen's
trunk; proposed to do it at: once, but Mrs Wesley
preferred to wait." When the trunk was; searched,
the things were found in it, just-as she expected.they
would be.' - ' .
When the witness was passed over to -me, I asked
in a carjelcss tone, bow she knew the money was in.
Mrs. Wesley's room the day she had met Helen coming
She knew it because Mr3. Wesley had told her.
Couldn't be mistakea", for Mrs. W. had tfpoken about
the half eagle with a hole in it, which she was goinj
to present to the minister's boy.'' - - -
This I made - her say over and over again; until
there could be no mistake about it, and then asked if
she knew who made the hole in the half eagle.
"-Yes; Mr. Murch, the jeweler made it.' . '
- Is be in the room ?." Tasked. , y
" Yes; there he is' said she, pointing. ' ' "
I told Miss Brown she could go, and the District
Attorney- requested that Mr. Murch should be eworn.'
The Attorney handed Murch the identical half eagliy
and asked if he recognized it. -He said he did; that
the Magistrate who committed the prisoner had made
a mark upon it. - ' - " -
That's all; the witness ia yours Mr. Remsen."
! Do you remember, Mr. Murch on what day 'if.
the month you made' the hole' in the half eagle ?' I
asked.-.. ... . J-
' If was on the 17th of March," said he.. " s
Why, that was the very day tho prisoner's. trunk
was searched, was it not ?"8aicl r, turning to the
District Attorney. " ' - -
That is tho day mentioned in the indictment,'
he replied. ' . . v.
- Turning again to the witness, I-said, Mr." March.
please to recollect with precision? you heard the wit
ness who preceded you, swear that Mrs. Wesley told
her that the identical half eagle, with the hole thenf
made in it. was in her husband's trunk on or hcfiim
the 16th of last March." -
' Yes,' said Murch, I heard her swear to that,"
and was astonished, for Mrs.- Wesley brought me the
coin on the afternoon of the 16th and told me I must
have it fixed by noon next day; at 11 on the -17th,
she came Tor it, and at" one that afternoon it was '
found in Miss Montressor's trunk." '
Tlie District Attorney turned sharp round and gava
the Wesleys a piercing look. Mrs. W. sat immovable;
but Wesley turned pale' and . fairly cowered beneath
the gaze of the Attorney, who, I saw, vas'now con
vinced of the true facts'of the case; and Judge and
j ury seemed to be of th"? same mind. I felt certain, then,
of a verdict in my orient's "fivor; but how waTT'lo
