From the True I'luj,
Tho Myiterioui Gamblor.
BY AN OLD HTAQTR.
I have made several passages up the
Mississippi aud Ohio rivers, and never
without seeing on board the steamers more
or less professional gamblers. It is. a thriv
ing business on the boats where time hai.gs
heavily on tho hands of the passengers,
and the blacklegs carry oil largo sums of
money." They usu illy remain ou board
but a day or two long enough to have
their true character exposed.
This gentry had become such an intol
erable nuisance that the captains of the
boats did not knowingly pennit one to
come on board; and -not un frequently a
brace of blacklega were lauded in the woods
when their profession was discovered.
During ono of my trips the boat put in
at the mouth of the Arkansas river, and
as nsual, I tool: a stn-11 on shore. I heard
the bell for the departure of tho steamer,
und hastened back to the landing. As I
I was on my way, 1 was overtaken uy a

as he joined me
"True enough, sir;" I replied respect
fully, foi the gentlou-an a clergyman, a
Methodist itinerant, as I supposed.
My valise is rather heavy, and I fear
ed I should lose the boat."
" Jjet me help you carry it, sir."
Ho accepted my civil ofTer, and I took
hold of the valise, which was certainly
loaded very heavy for a Methodist parson.
In a few moments we reached the steamer
and I passed on board ; but my new ac
quaintance had accomplished but lulf the
distance, when tho plank canted, and he
was thrown into the liver. Fortunately
for him, I was prompt in my efforts to res
cue him, and he was immediately drawn
on bond; with no other detriment than a

It was now nearly dark and 1 did 'not fee
r.iui again that night.
Ab usual, iu the - evening, there was a
table in the cabin, devoted to cards ; in a
word, there was gambling without stint.
No one objected to the practice, so long ai
it was not done by professional Blacklegs.
I never played but I often stood by the ta
ble to observe the progress of tho game,
and study the looks of the players, as they
were agitated by the fickle chances of a

pathy for- Chos- whom he lias so deeply
wronged, shows that he is fully sensible
of the. enormity of his crimes.
The oue of the letter, and th state of
Case'rtrujnd, may be inferred from a few
quotations. In addressing the husband
whomiie had so foully injured he says :
' Yorti former wife died iu Jnne, 185G,
of a disuse of the climate, which was ag
gravatodby a previous oue from which
hUe suliered while in Aiaurmus. in mat
lu'Iboth her and myseli were very ill
ofthafjcr.. My own recovery was tho t
hopeltf.ind indeed it was reported that

J-was d&d. This, ot course, coming to
heKniiWH'dgc, naua severe ami mjuuous
cffect'irpon her. But as these particula.s
are of less consequence, I will say no more
on thjspoint. In course of time we both
recove remand, on gaining sufiicio it strength
agaiu took passage on a trading vessel to
Ceylon, in search of a better climate.
Wo went. to the mountainous regions of
that tropical Islaud, near the city of Kan
dy, where -the air is cool, aud, to most peo
ple, healtMct than other parks of India.
Thereto, jtved many mouths in compara
tive quljybut fever agaiu overtook hor
who.waHho mother of your child, and
though she lingered long aud suffered
much, noT human means could restore her.
Here lporuj sensibilities became more acute
as she failed in strengtl', and with tho first
loi. of hopo. of recovery, 6hc became anx
iously distressed to secure the reftoration oi
her dear little child to its bereaved father.
She was incessant in exacting promises
from mo that, if 1 lived, E. should bo tak
en, or rent back safely to you. From these
demands I had no wish to escape. My
only anxiety was to do anything in my
power to afford a small consolation, in the
strongest assurances I could make, that her
wishes should be carried out. Although,
after tho mother waa gone from mo forev
er, the poor child became dearer to me.
Sho was all I had left. Yet, ru I had prom
ised her poor mother, and as that mother
had sacrificed tho world and cverything'ou
earth for my sake, I had not tho slightest
thought or wish to neglect the discharge of
iho responsible, and to mc,fearlul duty.
