thus far, duriug the IpIP4e of six
months, had proved himself worthy
and well qualified.
The partnera warm-hearted, but
quick and impulsive, had fallen into

James Worcester became oalm andI
self possessed, tnough a trifle paler
than usual. He knew that Mr. Land.

owed his success, and that to him be

"Then, what did ho say to you of
"I cannot tell you, sir."
"Odnnot 1 You mean you will.
"As you please, sir."
While Landrove wvas si'.ont with
amazement at this deportment on the
part of the creature of his bounty,
the youth proceeded:
"Mr. Laud rove, as God is my jui4go,
I am your humble friend and most
obodienit servant, an~d if I have a love
more strong for otne of my employers
than the other, that lovo is for yop.
But, sir, even to please you, I cannot
do a mean, unmanly thing. What

was said in Confidence. I know that
I should not repeat hia words. I hold
them as I would hold money that had
boon piaced in my keeping."
Mr. Landrove swore a big oath abd
again demanded to know .what Mr.
Cooper had said to him. But Wor
cester was firm. Then the manufac.
'turer threatened discharge.
"I came to you with an honor un.

That very night these two very im.
pulsive men met, and their ill-will
was blown to the wind as quick as it
had been engendered. Over a bottle
of wine Landrove told hIk interview
with young Woreeiter.
"Of one thing I can assure you,"
aid Cooper, "he loves you truly and
levotedly. I know it from the words
which he spoke this morning, and
rrom the warm tears which orept out
apon his lashes as he gave them utter
ance. His refusal to repeat my
words was from principle."
"Ah I" cried Landrove, "and from
principle very seldom found in this
oor world of ours. By my life, Al.
ert, he will be worth his weight in
gold to us I We can trust him."
Mr. Nickerson took James Wor
3ester's books, as Landrove had
threatened, but it was only that the
younger book keeper might be trans.
rorred into the inner room, or sanc

dential agent and correspondent,
whence, in time, he stopped forth in
to a share of the businesu.

Major uist now submitted a mo.

He made it, not that the defendant
knew anything personal about any of
the jurymen, or was able to prove
anything against the Marshal, but be.
cause it was true that the defendant
had the knowledge of a certain state
of things that induced him to believe
that the United Statti Mirshal was
not indifferent and impartial in sum
moning the talesmen. He then 'read
the following motion and affidavit:

An Awful Alystery.
s One cold iight about New Year's,
Fa cry of fire -Aas raised in Nount t
Bethel, a little town about seven
miles from Plait.field, over the Spr ing.
field Mouitains, in Somerset county
New Jersey. A building over a hun.
0ired years old was ir fl. ies. It was .3
occupied by a Gorman fa -mer named
-3eust. He rushed from the burn
t ing building, saupoting that his fdmi
ly were satle. He tiosd one of his d
- daughierp, and ran back in the house f
to save her. He had caught her in
his arns and was making his way to
i the door, when the floor gave way and r
i they were- both burned: to death. c
Since then the ruins of the house c
I havo been removed.
- The mansion was built in the old I
i fashioned style, with huge fire places a
D .in two of the roonss, the chimneys I
sloping towards each other, and join-- i
- ig before reaching the roof. Wall- e
ed in the cavity between the two fire c
piees a buttan skeleton in perfect i
preservation was discovered. An old I
flint lock inu.ket stood at Its side, I
and two rusty knives lay at its feet. i
The musket is of tbhe old British pat
a tern. It is supposed that the re. t
f mains are those of a Tory soldier who C
. met his death at the hands of the I
colonist during the revolution. Thet

erpetrated in the abused name of
tep.ublicanism during the past five or
ix years, especially in the South.
The mon.trous exaggeration of
axis and debts in most of the South

hese robberies are now seeking to
sciape the just punishment of their
