Well-chosen, whether from old, heroic ago
Of Greek or Roman, or romantic pago
Of modern acer. And but ono fault thev

BY CHARLES DICKENS.
'?I have, indeed, seen your bro?
ther,': he said, in reply to Grimaldi's
question. "Good God, I was nover
so amazed in all my life."
"Is ho here now?" was the anxious
"No; but he has not been gone a
minute. He cannot have gone many
"That way, towards Duke street."
He must have gone, thought Gri?
maldi, to call ou Mr. Bailey, our old
landlord. Ho hurried away to tho
house in Great Wild street, and
knocked long and loudly at the
door. Tho people were asleep. Ho
knocked again and rang violently,
being in a state of great excitement.
At length tho servant girl thrust ber
head out of an upper window, and
said, both sulkily and sleepily, "I tell
you again, ho is not at home."
"What are you talking about?
Who is not at home?"
"Why, Mr. Bailey. I told you so
before. What do you keep on
knocking for at this time of night?"
He could not understand a word of
all this, but hurriedly told his name,
and requested the girl to como down
directly, for ho wished to speak to
her. Tho head was directly with?
drawn, tho window closed, and in a
minuto or two afterwards the girl
appeared at tho street door.
"I am suro I beg your pardon,
sir," she said, after pouring forth a
volume of apologies, "but thero was
a gentleman knocking and ringing
very violently not a minuto before
you came. I told him Mr. Bailey
was not at home, and when I heard
you at tho door, I thought it was
him, and that ho would not go away. "
Grimaldi was breathless at tho speed
he had made, and trembling with
vaguo apprehensions of ho knew not
what. Tho girl, surprised at his
emotion, replied, "That she had only
answered him from tho window,
beiug afraid to opeu tho door to a
stranger so long after dark, when all
the family wero out." The only
thing she had noticed was, that ho
had got a white waistcoat on; for sho
had thought at tho time, seeing him
dressed, that perhaps ho might have
called to take her master to a party.
"He must havo goto back to tho
He loft the surprised girl standing
nt the door, and ran to Drury Lauo.
Here, again, ho was disappointed.
Ho had not been seen. Ho ran from
place to place, and from house to
house, wherever ho thought it possi?
ble his brother could havo called, hut
nobody had board nf or seer. h;;u.
Many of tho persons to whom ho ap
pealod openly expressed thoir doubts
to each other of bis sanity of mind,
which were really not without a sha?
dow of probability, soeing that ho
knocked them out of their bods, and,
with appoarauco of agitation and
wildness, demanded if they had seen
his brother, whom uobody had beard
of for fourteen years, and whom most
of thom considered dead.
It was so late now that tho theatre
was just shutting np, but ho ran
back once moro, and inquired if his
brother had been there. Hearing he
had not, he concluded that, recollect?
ing the address he had mentioned,
he had gone stright to his mother's
home; this seemed probable, and yet
ho felt a degree of dismay and alarm
which bo h?.d never before expe?
rienced even when thoro wore good
grounds for such feolings.
The more ho thought of this, how?
ever, the more probable it seemed,
and he blamed himsolf ns ho wnlkod
quietly homewards for not haviug
thought of it sooner. Ile remember?
ed the anxiety his brother had ex?
pressed to seo their mother, tho plan
tlioy had discussed for their all being
together, and tho many little schemes
of futuro happiness which they had
talked ovor in their hurried inter?
view, and in all of which he was com?
prised. He reached home, and com?
posing himself as well as ho could,
entered the littlo room in which ho
usually supped after the play. His
brother was not there; but his mo?
ther was, and as she looked much
paler thau usual, he thought she had
"Well, mother," he said, "has
anvthing strange occurred hero to?
"No, nothing that I have heard
"What! no stranger arrived; no
long-lost relative recovered?" ex?
claimed Grimaldi, all his former ap?
"What do you mean?"
"Mean! Why that John is como
homo safe and well, and with money
euough to make all our fortunes."
His mother screamed wildly at this
intelligence, and fainted. She re?
covered after a time, and Grimaldi
recounted to her and his wife tho
events of the evening, precisely as
they are here narrated.
They were greatly amazed at the
recital. Tho mother held that he
would bo sure to orme heh re tho
night was over; that bo had p1 bably
met with some of bis old fri"! s, and
would be there after ho had left
them. She insisted that Grimaldi,
who was tired, should g<> to bed, while
she sat up and waited for hov son.
Ile did so, and the mother remained
all through the long wiuter night
axiously expecting his arrival.
This may appear a long story, but
its conclusion invests it with a de?
gree of interest which warrants the
(letails. The running away to sea of
a young man, and his return after a
lapse of years, is, ?md (iver has been,
no novelty in this island. This is
not the burden of the tale. It pos?
sessed an awful interest to those
whom it immediately concerned, and
cannot fail to have, some for tho most
I'roui that night in November,
1803, to this month of January,
18(33, the missing man was never
seen again, nor was any intelligence
or any clue of the faintest or most
remote description ever obtained by
his friends respecting him.
Next morning, aud many morn?
ings afterwards, tho mother still
anxiously and hopelessly expected
tho arrival of her son. Again and
again did she question Grimaldi about
him, his appearance, his manner,
what he saki, and all tho details of
his disappearance; again and again
was every minute fact recalled, and
every possible conjecturo hazarded
relative to his fate. He could scarcoly
persuado himself but that thc events
of tho preceding night were a delu?
sion of his brain, until tho inquiries
e<"t.er his brother, which were made
by those who had seen him on tho
previous night, placed them beyond
all doubt, no communicated to his
friends tho strange history of tho last
few hours, with all the circumstances
of his brother's sudden disappear?
ance. Ho was advised to wait a littlo
while before ho made tho circum?
stances public, in tho hope that ho
might have beeu induced to spend
tho night with soruo ship-mates, and
might speedily return.
But a week passed away, and then
further silence would havo been
criminal, and ho proceeded to set
foot every inquiry which his own
mind could suggest or tho kindness
of his friends prompt them to advise.
A powerful nobleman, who at that
timo used to frequent Drury Lane
theatre, and who had on roany occa?
sions expressed his favorable opinion
of Grimaldi, interested himself great
ly in tho matter, and set on foot i
series of inquiries at the Admiralty
overy source of information possess?
ed by that establishment that wa;
doomed at all likely to throw an^
light upon the subject waa resorte!
to, but in vain; tho newspapers wer<
searched to ascertain what ships hac
? arrived in the river or upon tho coas
' that day, whence they came, wita
I orews they carried, what passenger
ihcy??"had; the police officers were
paid to search all London through
and endeavor to gain some informa?
tion, if it were only of the lost man's
death. Everything was tried by the
imniiy and oy many very powerful
friends tho distressing nature of tho
inquiry raised up about them, to
trace the object of their regret and
labor, but all in vain. The sailor
was seen no more.

" Blood, Blood, Out I Say ! "
CLEANSE out these perilous spots, pim?
ples, corrupt sores, which pollute tho
life of the blood, and render your body a
loatbesomo thiug. They aro tho precur?
sors of a diseased blood, and will assmnn
a much more formidable abano if allowed
to go on unchecked. The QUEEN'S DE?
LIGHT, the oidy real blood purifier that
has ever been invented, as thousands will
to-day attest, is offered to tho ?fllie.ted as
a positive remedy for all diseases tlowing
from a vitiated condition of the svsteni.
THE LIFE OF THE FLESH ?S PURE
BLOOD. Upon this theory alone the in?
ventor of tho Queen's Delight estab?she
tho great hvgieuic law, WITHOUT PURE
BLOOD NO FLESH LS F'REE FROM DIS?
EASE. The Palo and Shrunken Forma,
Yellow Faces. Weak Stomachs, Diseased
Livers, Crippled Rheumatics. Nervous
Hypochondriacs, Dyspeptic Victima ot'
Headache, so common in thia country, is !
owing entirely to tho humors of tho blood. ;
Very many other diseases may bo traced to i
bail blond, Scrofula or King's Evil, Eryai- !
pelas. Exanthema or Elevnro, a rash or
eruption on females: Blotches, Tetter,
Goitre or Swelled Neck, Syphilis and Sy?
philitic Sorca, St ruinous Ulcere, Ac.
These eannot bo cured without purifying
thc blood. Now aa to tho remedy. Thora
ia no other blood purifier that will accom?
plish such positivo and extraordinary cures
aa Heinitsn's Oucon'a Delight. You may
take a barrel of extract Sarsaparilla, and
atill you will not bo cured; and, aa a proof
of it j look around and you wiU observo tho
country, throughout ita length and
breadth, is flooded with compound Sarsa
Earillaa, extracta and syrups, claiming to
e blood purifiers, and yet wo seo to-day
moro evidence of impurity of tho blood
than ever. Why ia this? Simply because
theso extracts and Sarsaparillas aro wortb
Tho Queen's Delight ia a new compound,
and is now thu great blood medicine; sanc?
tioned by the profeaaion, patronized by the
highest dignitaries of tho laud, endorsed
In tho brief period of twelve months,
over 3,000 cases have been treated so suc?
cessfully as to entitle it to bo tho wonder
of the age.
For debility, prostration, nervousness,
mental depression, impaired digestion,
lona of appetite, rcatlosness, want of vital
foreo. Low spirits; it ia more invigorat?
ing and strengthening than all the com?
pounds of bark or bitters. As a liver
[nvigorator, it is of inestimable value. As
a stimulant, it is safer and surer than nil
tho rum and whiskey tonics of tho day,
and if you value your lifo and health a
pin's fee, avoid these quickening stimu?
lants to tho gravo and uso thu Queen's
Delight. Ask for Heinitsh'a Queen's De?
light. This is not tho Extract of Stellin
gia or Queen's Delight, nor ia it a Coin
