a yNew ' England, village.' Shortly
after we arrfVied,' a' peddler" drove
jap and ordered that his horse should
be stabled lor the night. Alter he
had eateiV.supper,; we repaired , to
the bar-robm, where the cohversa
tidn flowed freelv.j Several anec
dotes had been related, .and finally
tho'peddler was called upon to give

'rairo'6ti4d''l5et10ftg; through the;
landlord if h'e'would'see that 'my
horse" wai fed about midtright, as i
wished to be ' off about two. ' He
expressed 'some- surprise - at tlii3,
nnd asked me why' I did not stop
forireakla6t. I told him I hod sold
my last load about out, and that a
new ;lot of goods was waiting for
me at J ackson, and I wanted to get
there before the expres's agent left
in the morning.- ; .'
"There were a number of persons
Bitting round while I told this,' but
I took little notice of them. Only
'one arrested my attention I had
seen notices tht week for the de
tection of a notorious robber. The
bills gave a description of his psxj
son, ana the mait.belore me an
swered very well to it. i He was ' a
tall, welJ-fornied man, rather slight
framed, arid had the appearance, of
a' gentleman, save that "his face
bore those hard, cruel marks which
an observing man cannot mistake
but for the index of a villainous
disposition. '" ";., .'
'"When I went to my bed-chamber.
I asked the landlord who that
man' was, describing the individual.
He said that he did not know ' him;
he had come that afternoon, and
intended to leave the next dayl
The host asked me why 'I wished
to kriow. aiidif I was ever acquain
ted with hmn ' " ':' '
','1 resolved hot to let the ldrid
lord Ihto the secret, but hurry on
to Jackson,' and there give infor-
mauon to me snenir, ana perhaps
lie might reach the inri before the
villain left, for I had no doubt ' of
his identity. ',' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' '
"I had an alarm watch, ahd hav
ing set ii to give the alarm at ' one
o'clpck: ' I ' went to sleep. : I was
aroused 'at the' proper time, and
dressed myself. When I reached
the yard 1 found the clouds had
passed away,; arid the moon -was
shining brightly. The hostler was
easify aroused, and by two' o'clock
i was on the roaa. rne mud was
deep, arid my horse could not trav
ei very last. . However, on we
went ' arid in the course of half an
hour I was clejir front the village.
At a short' distance ahead lay a
large -tract -'of piive forest.'' Th
road lay direct through this wood,
and, 83 near as l can remember,
the'disfance was twelve ' miles.
Yet the jnoOn' was in the east, and
as the road ran nedrly, west1 1 tho't
lihould have Ugl't enough. ' '"' 1
"I had entered . this wbod and
gone . about half a mile, when 'my
wagon wheels settled with, a bump
and a jerk into a deep hole. ,"', I 'ut
tered 'an' exclainution of astonish
ment. But this Was not all-I heard
another exclamation il'om ; 8ome
source. What could it mean? I
looked ?quietly around, but : could
see nothing; yet I knew the sound
J heard was very near me. As the
hiri'd, w.heels came dp I heard some
thing tumble from one sido to the
other of my wdgpnj and I could
feel' the jar occasioned by ' the
movement. It w'as siniply ' a man
in my cart 1 I knew' this, on" the
instant. Ot course I felt puzzled.
At first I juiiigined that, some one
had taken this - method to obtain a
ride.! '.Mv next idea was that some
body, got in there to sleep; but this
passed. away as soon as it came, for
no man would have broken into
my carti for 'that purpose.-.; And
thatuthoughty ; gentlemen, '.opened
my.eyeB.. . Whoever was,, there had
broken in My : next I thought .was
of the. suspicious individual I had
seen at the tavern. He heard me
say that, my load was all sold, put,
and of .ourse be supposed that I
had VoW money, with me..;. In thi3
lie was? right, for ,1 had . over two
thousand dollars, l thought, he
mean t to leave the cart when he
"sap posed J , hijd; reached ' a ( safe
placei; ani 'then ,: creep " 6e.r 'arid
slibot rue or, knock. me down. All
this liaised through ' my ' mind ' by
ther tlnri e I nad got a ' rod from the
hole. 'J'yi ' J"''-".M''' . "' 1
n "in' a' few. moments ' my : resolu
tion was.'rmed.'" My -horse was
khee-deep in 'rnudarid I . could slip
off without .noise. VSd I ,;drew ftry
pistol, and having, twined the reins
about i then whip - f tock; i' carefully
slipped dowii in :the' mud,land as
.the cart passed on ; I "went behind
and examined the hasp.. The i out

! ,ttNow I had hjmt .My. cart was
filmost new, made of a stout frame
of ; white oak, and made on purpose
for hard usages, , 1 did. not believe
any ordinary man could get out.-
I got into my carl as noiselessly as
I got oil, and then urged my horse
on, still keeping my pistol handy.
I knew that at a distance. of half a
mile further I should come to a
hard road, and , 60 I allowed my
horse to pick his own way through
the mud. , ,
"About (en minutes after this!
heard a motion in the cart, follow
ed by a grinding noise,; as though
some heavy force , was heing, ap
plied to the door. I said nothing.
.but the Idea struck me that . tio
villain , might judge where ! sat,
and shoot up through the (op of the
cart at me; so I sat on the. foot
board; , .
. "Of course I knew my unexpect
ed passenger was a villain, for ho
must have been awake ever: since
I started, and nothing in the world
but absolute villainy would have
caused him to remain quiet so long
..and then start up in this particular
place,: !lhe thumping and pushing
grew louder,and pretty soon I heard
a human voice. ,-..-! ; ...
"Let me - out of this!", and ho
yelled, pretty loud. t ,,. ..-. . i ,
"I lifted my head so as. to make
him ,think I was in my usual place.
.and then asked him what he was
.doing there.; , v .' f : ,
'Let me out and I will tell you,"
,he replied., . . , '
. "lell me what you are )n there
for,":! said.
j . "I got. in. here to sleep on the
Lwgs," he answered. - ,'..,
"How did you get in?" I asked. ,
jT "Let me oul or I'll' shoot you
through the headr, ;
,;. "Just at tljat monfentmy horse's
feet 'struck the hard! road, and I
knew that the rest of the route to
Jackson would be good .going; the
distance was twelve miles. . I slip
ped back on the ; foot-board and
took the whip. ; .In fifteen minutes
we cleared the woods, and we. went
at a keen jump, the... chap ; inside
yelling to, be let' out., , finally - ho
-atopped;.ar4d in a fewipute came,
the report of a ; pistol one two
-rthree fourrrone right after, the
other, and I heard the balls whiz
over my head..;; If I .had been On
my seat, one of these -balls, if not
two of, them, would;, have gone
through me. I popped my head up
again and gave a , yell, and then
said, 'Oh! God save me! J'm a dead
man!', . Then 1 made a shuffling
noise as though I : was falling oil',
and iin ally, settled down ion the
foot-board again., . I now. urged up
the old mare by giving her , an oc
casional poke with the whip-stock,
and she peeled if taster than ever.
..t'Tie man called out to me twice
more, pretty soon after this, and as
he got no reply, he made some . tre
mendous eTorU to break the door
cpen, and as this failed: him, he
made several attempts at. the top.
But! had no fears of Iysi doing
anything there, for the top of 'the
cart is framed with - dovetails, and
each sleeper bolted to the post
with iron, bolts. I had it mado so
I could carry loads there'. By-and-by,
after all else had failed, the
ecamp commenced to holler 'whoa'
to the horse, and kept it up until
)ie became hoarse. All this time
I kept quiet, holding the reins firm
ly, and Kept -poking the mare with
the: ptock.r j Ye were not an hour
going; that dozen miles not a bit
of it. I hadn't much fear; perhaps
I might tell the truth and say I had
jione, for I had a good pistol, and
more than that, my passenger was
safe; yet I was glad when 'I ; came
,to the flour , barrel factory that
stands at the edge, of Jackson vill
age,and in ten minutes more hauled
up in front of the tavern, and found
a couple of men in the barn clean
ing dQwn some horses.; : ( i
n.f'Well, old fejjow," said I, as I got
down npd went to the back of the
wagon, "you hve had. a good ride,
haven't joul"..,; ) . . ;.. I -fji .
: f'Who are you?' tie cried; and he
swore as he asked the question, i
, . ani.the man you tried to shoot,'
was my, reply.' i ;:; ,; ;.! ,
If'Where am i? i Let me out.'
,t "LopJc here,, we've come to a safe
slopping-pjace, and mind! my : 'pis
tol is ready, for,; you i the moment
ypu show ypurself.. i Now lay quiet.'
ri.fBy. this rAime the; hostlers, had
come to see w hat was the matter,
and I, explained the case, ..'After
thia I got .one of them d ' run , and
roiit -thesli'eTiff, ft'nd (el! .iiim what
I belieVed 1 Td 'got ! for - him The
first, streaks of flight Were jutt
coming.up,; and in an hour it would
be broad dayhghtv ,.Lnolp;,tiup
j
that liirie'the sherifl1 came; and two
men with him.'-'. 1 told - him- the
whole aflair ja a few. .words, and
then mado for, the . cart, ; lie told
the chap inside who he was, and if
he made the least' resistance he'd'
be a dead man. I then slipped the
iron wrench' out, and as I let the
door down, the fellow , made a
spring. I caught him by the an
kle and he came down on his face,
and the moment I saw tho chap ' I
recognized him. He was marched
to the lock-rip, and I told the sher
iff I should remain in town all day.
: "Afle breakfast tho sheriff came
down to the tavern and told me
that I had caught the very bird,and
if I would remain until the next
morning I should have the reward
ot two hundred dollars that had
been offered. -4'. J .i : ; .,
"I found my goods all safe, paid
tije express agent for bringing them
from Indianapolis, ; and then went
to stow them away in: my cart.
Tho bullet holes , were found in the
top of the vehicle just as I expect
ed. They were in a line, about
five inches apart; and had I been
where I usually sit, two of them
must have hit me in the small of
the back, and both charges of pow
der were heavy ones..' '
.! On the next morning the sheriff
called upon mo and paid mo two
hundred dollars in gold, for he had
made himself sure that he had got
the villain
"I afterwards found a letter in
the post office at Portsmouth for
me, from tho sheriff of 'Hancock
county, and he informed mo- that
the fellow who tried to kill and rob
me was in pricon for life." : -
