QUAKER AND THE ROBBER.
Translated from the French by R. A. Atree.
The most honest of all Quakers,
lobv Mmpton, lived at London, in a
pleasant little dwelling graced by the
presence of bis daughter Mary, olio
was not quite seventeen years or age :
was charmingly fair ; had blue eyes,
and possessed as much modesty as
beauty. AH the young men or iter
father's acquaintance were her suit
ors; all those of the neighborhood
sought to gain' her " notice. Tain
efforts ! Mary was no coquette ; and
instead of enjoying the cfJect produced
by ber charms, she was vexed on
account of the manners of all her ad
mirers, except one i Edward Wercs
ford, a young artist admitted to the
intimacy of her family.
A simple event had cansed this
friendship. A premature tleath had
carried iffj the Quaker's wife. " She
was young and beautiful, and desir
ing to perpetuate the image of her
who was so dear to him, he had
caused the artist to come to the bed
of death. It was there a serious first
love took place, amid the tears of one
and the pious work of the other.
The year which elapsed after this
epoch bad but strengthened the bond
formed under these a as pices, .and the
young man had showed to the father
both hl. desire and hope.
The excellent Toby had no reason
whatever for opposing the mutual
inclinations of the two young persons.
Without being rich, Edward earned
by means of his pencil what suf
ficed to support a family honorably.
Mr.Weresford, an old merchant of
the city, had retired from business,
with a fortune increased more than
tenfold. This wa3 a rare example of
rapid eucccss in speculation so
rapid, indeed tkati few were ablo to
folio its progress. 4 v ,J J'
Yet Wcresford, of so blunt and
stern disposition, lived alone in a
suburb of London, and without car
ubg what his .on, was doing,' left hini
entirely 'atlibdrty.- He' was one of
those accommodating egotists who
trouble no one, provided they trouble
not them persons of perfect com
plaisance if you ask nothing of them.
Edward, therefore, could without
interruption, court his pretty Quaker
ess, well assured that his father
would never think of opposing his
marriage. The situation of the lov
ing couple was, to all appearance,
very, Jirpfiperons -u and honest Toby
did not? put off the tlay of 'their mar
riage longer than to collect the ar
rearages of his rents ; he destined the
money for the extraordinary expens
es of the ceremony. For this pur
pose he went to his country scat,
some miles from London, in order to
regulate his affairs. He had passed
but one day away from home, and as
hi. ws nboat lo.puj tip hie lidrse for
the night, ue pcrcefvya,a porne uis
tance a1 horseman who ttad barred
the road. He stopped uncertain
whether to go on or turn back.
Meanwhile the horseman advanced
toward him. 4 f '
The Quaker 'cdulitiiot Ivcri think
of escaping. Ho therefore put on a
good face, and brought his horse to
a walk. In approaehing the man
whotf caused iqs uneasiness, he per
9ivd that he Was masked, a griev
dNjfiaVguryjfiwbich 'was-tooa con
flwnad. TLAv-nknowjiiUt)edi' a
pistol and directed the muzzle to
tho traveler, demanding his purse.
The Quaker did not want courage,
but calm by character inoffensive by
religion, and even unable without
arms to. resist an armed man, he
pulled from his pocket very coolly a
purse containing twelve guineas.
The robber took it, counted the
pieces, and left the poor devil whom
he had stopped to pass on, while he
put bis horse to tho trot. But the
robber, seeing the 6light resistance
he had opposed, and allured by the
hope of a second booty, immediately
rejoined honest. Toby, placed him
self anew in his way, and presenting
pistol as before cried out to him :
"Your watch!" -
The Quaker, surprised, was never
theless unmoved. He coolly took
his watch from the fob, looked at the
hour, and put the costly article into
the hand of the robber, saying:
"Now, I beseech the, permit me
to go to my dwelling my daughter
will be uneasy at mj absence."
"A moment more,'' replied 'the
masked cavalier, the more and more
hardened by this docility; "swear to
mo that you have no other sum "
'I never swear," said the Quaker.
"Very well. Affirm that you have
no othefmpney, and on tho faith of
an honest robber, incapable of tak
ing by violclico from a man who
yields witlt so good a grace, I will
let you continue on your journey.
i ue uuaKer reiiecteu a moment and
shook his head.
"What lhinke8t thou?'' he said
graf ely, "thou' hast discovered that
I am a Quaker, and will not botrav
the truth, though at the peril of my
Inc. ihitB I tletlarc to thec that I
have under my saddle-cloth a sum of
twrf hundred pounds sterling."
"Two hundred pounds sterling!"
cried the robber, while his eves
sparkled through his mask.
"lsut if thou art as good as thou
art kind," replied tho Quaker, "thou
wilt leave mo this money. I wish to
establish my daughter and this sum
is necessary ; for a long time I fehall
not have a similar sum at my dispos
al. The dear child lovcth her in
tended, and it will be cruel to delay
this union. Thou hast loved, pcr-
adventore,- aud thou wouldst not
commit this wicked act"
"What care I for your daughter,
and her lover, and their marriage ?
Less talk, and more promptitude of
execution! I must have this money."
louy, witu a sign, urted the cloth,
a bag heavy enough, and passed it
slowly to the masked man. His in
tention then was to gallop off.
Mop again, friend Quaker, said
the other, .laying his hand upon the
bridle, 4'as soon as you arrive, you
will denounce me to the magistrates.
This is according to your order.
have nothing to say ; but I must
have the advance of the process to
night, at least. My mare is feeble,
and is, licaides, fatigued. Your
horse, on the contrary, appears vig
orous, ror the weight of the bag does
not incommode him. Alight and
give mc your beast ; you may take
mine, if you will.''
He was slow in beginning to com
ply because these cross exigencies
were of a nature to raise the choler
of the most patient man. The eood
tooy, nowever, descended, and re
signedly took the sorry jade which
was left him in exchange. "If I
had known," he continued himself
in thinking, -'I would have fled at
the first encounter with this rocue
and certainly it is not with this
courser that he would have gained in
uuring this time tne masKCd man
ironically thanked him for his com
plaisance, applied both 6uurs and
Before he reached London, Toby
had time to relied on his misfortune,
on the chagrin of the two young per
sons who loved, and whoso happi
ness would be put off. The ' Bum
was irrecoverably lost Not the
least of it could be regained, nor
could the audacious robber ba recog
nized. ' Meanwhile as a sudden idea
struck him, he stopped.
"les ,'' said he, "this means may

don, I may peradventure meet him
gain, I leaven, no doubthath willed
that he should have been so very im
prudent' bomewhat consoled, by I know
not what hope, Toby went home
without showing any trouble, or say
ing aught of his adventure. He did
not. go to the magistrate, but em
braced his daughter, who suspected
nothing, and slept His faith was
Next day he thought of co-opera
tion with Providence in making re
search. He let the mare out of the
station where she had passed -the
night, and threw tho bridle over her
neck, in hopes that the animal, led
by habit, would naturally go to the
house of her master. He therefore
sent off the poor beast, which, had
been fastlng,to" wander at large
through the streets ot London, and
followed her. Hut he supposed her
to have more instinct than she had ;
for a long time she went right and
left, making a thousand turns and
returns without aini, without direc
tion, sometimes at a stand, then tak
ing a contrary course.
Toby despaired, "Aiy rohher,''
thought he, "doth not live in London.
What folly in me! instead of going
the magistrate when I had tunc,
have suffered myself to be led
away by this wretched animal !'
Suddenly, however, the beast
pricked up her ears and set off on a
brisk trot followed by tho Quaker.
Stop!' stop!" was the cry on all

ker; '"I entreat vyou to detain- nie

eye the course oi tuu annual, ne
saw her rapidly entering the gate ol
dweling in the suburb.
""lis here," thought the Quaker,
raising his c'C8 toward heaven, in
thanks to Providence.
"What, have you been in these
parts ?" was the answer, "that you
don't now that this is the dwelling
of the rich mcrehant Weresford ?'U
jThe Quaker stood petrifiedTs v
'Weresford," repeated th neigh
bor, who believed that he had not
understood him, "the man who made
so rapid a fortune.''
"Excuse roe, my friend, excuse
me,'' replied Toby.
He could could not recover from
"Weresford, the father of Edward,
man of note, my robber !'
He believed he was dreaming, and
desired to come to himself. Mean
time many examples occurred to bis
memory, of many . respectable per
sona who were in Icaguo with ban
ditli.' Toby resolved to investigate
Ho entered boldly into the court
and demanded to speak with the pro
prietor, who had just gone to bed,
though it was near mid day a new
indication of a night of fatigue! The
Quaker insisted on being introduced
and soon found himself in Weres
ford's bed chamber. He, not being
used to be disturbed, rubbed his eyes
and demanded with some impatience.
"Who are you sir? What do you
want with me r
The sound of the voice was recog
nized by Toby, and thoroughly con
vinced him. He tranquilly drew t
chair and seated himself at tbe bed
side, his hat on his head.
"Do you remain covered ?" cried
the merchant in surprise.
. "I am a Quaker," answered the
other, Trith much calmness, "and
thou knowest that such is our usage."
At these words of the Quaker,
Weresford sat up in bed and eyed
the stranger. lie doubtless recog
-nized him, for he turned deadly pale.
"Well," demanded he, stammer
"What is it if you please the
subject that you come about?"
. "I ask thy allowance for appear
ing so pressing," answered Toby ;
"but between friends it matte re th
not much, and I come without cere
raony, to ask for the watch that thou
Ijorowdcst of mo yesterday."
"The watch ?'
"I value it much ; it belonged to
my poor wife, and I cannot do with
out it My excellent friend, the Al
derman, would never forgive me
were I to fail for one day to return
the jewel to his Bister.'
The name of an Alderman appear
ed to make some impression upon
Weresford. Without waiting for an
answer, Toby continued :
"Thou wilt do me the pleasure to
return alas the twelve guineas which
I let thec at the same time. Never
theless, if thou art in need of them, I
consent to let theo have them for
some time, on condition that thou
give mo a receipt"
I he scheme of the Quaker so dis
concerted tho old merchant that
he could not deny the os8C8sion of
the articles, but not liking to ac
knowledge his crime, he hesitated to
answer, when Toby added :
"I wish thee to participate at the
approaching marriage of my daugh
ter Mary. I had reserved the sum
of two hundred pounds sterling for
the bridal of the espoused, but an
accident happened to me last night
on the road to London I was com
pletely robled, so I come to pray
thee to give thy son a portion, which
otherwise I would not ask of thec."
"My son ?'
"Yes. Dost thou not know that
he is Mary's lover, and that 'tis he
that is to marry her "
"Kdward Weresford,'' mildly re
plied the Quaker, while quietly
taking a pinch of snuff. "Come, do
this thing for him. I would not,
verily, that he should know aught of
what passed last night, and if thou
dost not furnish him with the sum
that I promised, it will be well for
me to tell him how I lost it
Weresford ran to a bureau, and
drew out a casket with a triple lock,
opened it, and returned successively
to loby his purse, his watch, and
his bag of money.
V ery well, ' said the Quaker as
he received them, "I see that I had
reason to count on thee.''
"Is this all that you see ?'' demand
ed the merchant with one of his blunt
"Nay, I yet need something of thy
"Thou wilt disinherit hia. I see
not but that some one may say I have
speculated on thy fortune."
In finishing these words the Quaker
left the chamber.
"No," murmured he, when he found
himself alone, "children are not an
swerable for the faults of their pa
rents. Mary shall marry the son of
this man, but the stolen money he
shall never touch."
When ho reached the court, he
called out to Weresford, who had
come to the window, "Ho ! my dear
friend,' I brought back thy marc, re
turn my horse." ,
Some minutes afterward, loby,
well mounted,' carrying by tho top
his bag of money, furnished with his
watch and purse, reached home at a
"I made a visit this morning to
thy father," Baid he to Edward, whom
he perceived entering with him; "I
believe we shall now agree."
Two hours afterward Weresford
arrived at the house of Toby, and
taking him apart, Baid;
"Honest Quaker, your proceedings
have deeply affected my very soul !
i ou might have dishonored me dis-
honored my Bon ; ruined me in his
estimation, and caused the misfor
tune of refusing him your daughter.
Yon havo shown yourself a man in
hand and heart I shall not again
blush in your presence. Take these
papers. Farewell ! you will never
see me again.' And he departed.
The Quaker, left alone, opened the
papers. 'They showed obligations ot
considerable value on the first bank
ers of London, with a long list of
names, and opposite each name, in
fio-urcs, tho sum greater or less in
amount. A billet was added, where
in the Quaker read as follows :
"These are the names or persons
who were robbed" ; the figures are the
sums which ought to be restored ; as
to the money with the bankers, in my
name, lot it go t6 the strangers, but
make the restitution secretly your
self. What remains will ' be my le
gitimate fortune, and your daughter
will some day possess my estate.
The next day Weresford left Lon
don and everybody was certain that
he had 'gone to spend his iortune in
France; . "! "' ' ' '
Oa the. day of the marriage, the
Quaker brought together a company
of merry friends, among whom were
noticed a number of persons enchant
ed with the 1 conduct; of th robbers
of London, who through the interpo
sition of Toby, had made restitution
of their lost capital witu interest.

Saturday evening, Oct. 16, 1868.
To Alexander T. Stem-mi, Eta.. Chairman of
ue urunl Kyommitlee, 4-e. yc. :
Mr Dkak Sir When Frank P.
Blair, who had no claim whaUever
upon the Democratic party, was
nominated in Tammany Hall with
such shouts of applause, iust After
proclaiming that "We must have a
President who will trample into
dust" the laws of Congress: -and
hen four rebel generals made the
chief ratification speeches in Nt s
York, my attention, as a war Demo-
i, was arrested by this remarka
ble exhibition. Since then I have
carefully noted the expression of
Southern journals, and tbe speeches
of Southern politicians, from Wade
Hampton's, on his return to Charles
ton, to the recent manifesto of B. II.
Hill, and I find that every rebel in
the Confederacy regards the expect
ed election of Seymour and Blair as a
complete vindication of the rebellion,
and as certain to restore the South
to every right which she had before
the war, including "the trampling
into dust," by military feet, the proc
lamation 01 freedom and the four
teenth amendment of the Constitu
tion. This contest presents a well
defined issue between the friends and
and enemies of our Government
I cannot conceive how any intelli
gent man who does not wish the reb
els returned to power, the nation's
faith violated, its debt repudiated, its
name dishonored, its prosperity des
troyed, its patriots insulted, and tha
"lost cause'' restored, can vote
In my judgment the election of
Seymour and Blair would, forthwith,
confuse and paralyze our business,
and reduce the value of our property
To aid in averting this calamity I
send you twenty thousand dollars
which I give to be used in the elec
tion of Goneral Grant in such manner
as you aud the committee with whom
you act may think best
And I remain, ever truly, yours,

Official Report of the Camilla Massacre
-The Country Needs Grant and
Washington. Oct. 9. Both Gen:
Meade's report on the Camilla massa
cre, and the one from General Sibley,
direct to General Howard, were made
public to-day. The affidavits accom
panying them would fill several col
umns, and while they are referred to
in a general way in the report, it is
really incomplete without them,
unless the fact be borne in mind that
they contain minute details of the
atrocity, which show the whole affair
to have been as cold blooded as tho
Memphis and New Orleans massacres.
The following is the letter of Major
General Meade to Gen. Grant, trans
mitting the report of Capt. Mills:
GEN. MEADE'S LETTER.
HEADQUARTERS DEPARTMENT OF THE SOUTH.
ATLANTA, October 3, 1868.
Sir : You havo been apprised that
on receiving intelligence of the dis
orders occurring m this State on the
10th ult., at Camilla, in Bluebell
county, I at once ordered troops in
readiness to meet any call of the civil
authorities, such as are referred to in
the letter of instructions from the
General in Chief of data of August
25th, 1868, and at the same time
I dispatched Captain JUiiis, a most re
liable and intelligent officer, on whose
cool, sound judgment and freedom
from anv preiudice or party bias, I
could depend, to investigate thorough
ly and report the tacts in tne case, xv o
call having been made on mo, the
legislature, as I think, properly de
clining the request of tbe Governor to
authorize him to make the call, no
troops were sent.
The report of Captain Milhi was
yesterday received, and aer s pe.
rusal I deemed the only thing for bw
to do was to transmit it to the Gov
ernor of the State, the officer with
whom I am required to communicate,
and to assure him that in any meas
ures that might be taken by the civil
authorities in the investigation of the
affair and the punishment of derelict
civil officers or citizens, in ease he met
with resistance, and he or they found
themselves unable to execute the laws,
I was prepared, on being so informed,
to aid aud co operate with him to the
fullest extent of the force under my
command. My letter totbe Governor,
the report and accompanying docu
ments of Capttin Mills, are herewith
forwarded by the hands of Captain
McKifFen, U. S. A, and I should b
ioso.l to receive anv comments there
on which yourself, the honorable Sec
retary of War or the President may
pleaet to make.
I deem is proper to add that, in a
few days, I shall distribute the .troops
in the dcpartisont with a view of aid
ing the civil autliorities to keepthe
peace during the approaching presi

The Late General Samuel F. Cary.
The late General Cary was not a
man of blood. He was called Gen.
era! because he was not in any wis
particular. It was all one to the late
Samuel whether his grist was ground
ataBadical mill or a Democratic
mill. The grist mast .be ground, and
if the Radical mill refaa, it must
to some other one.
Sneaking of mills the late Samuel
was C0i?sideratIe f Hill himself

out of fashion, and he could not
make enough out ot hii? id worn
gudgeons to keep thesa greased, so
the cold water Samuel, turning" with
the weather-cock, became a wild
mill, and went to Congress.
Speaking of weather-cocks the

cools no porridge. So he held out
his bowl to a Railroad company, and
although he had been pledged to rote
no subsidies, he found the porridge
so refreshing that he ran his noes , in
clear up to the ayes, and made a very
pretty little job of it
Speaking ot 10b there was a man
of Uz Republicans named Job, and
he was atllicted with Macks from the
crown of his brad to the sole of his
feet, and Cary went walking to and
fro in the First District to gobble
Job. But Job waa too many for him.
and the gentle Samuel was regularly
katlumuiixed and threw up his hand,
though he had one knave in his boots
along; with his Podogocuc. and all
the balance in his hand.
Speaking of hand the tailoring
Samuel was called "he of the horny
hand," so his monument is chiseled
in the likeness pf a horn for the hor

of his own, and also the horn his fol
