THE BROTHERS.
. . j.
In 1819, the .principal hank
ing institutions of the chance
kind in San Francisco were the
"Bella Union ,"."Verandif" "Nim
de Oro," and "Parker House,"
all situated about , the ' , Tlaza,"
and each employed a band of
music to lessen the tedious hours
of that rainy winter, and to
drown the noise of jingling' gold
and eilver, and the cursing ejac
ulations of the gamblers.' y
Many a sad : scene has taken
place within these saloonr-, that
chilled the blood ofrthe-lvhoId-en'
and is remembered wlih hor
ror. I once carelessly sauntered
through one of these places. My
attention was attracted toward a
person who had large piles of
gold before him. The staring
eyeballs, the SAVollen veins upon
his forehead, the ' cold sweat
upon his face, and , clenched
hands, told of heavy Josses.
Mingled exclammations of hor
ror and contempt would escape
him, and he seemed unconscious
of all that was going on around
him. His gaze was bent upon
the cards as if his life's blood
was the stake at issue.' In this
case his last dollar was placed
within the dealer's bank ; then,
with tho frenzy of a maniac, he
drew a long, ugly dirk-knife and
plunged it up to the hilt into his
own body, and sunk a corpse on
the tabi. A few rude jeers fol
lowed this act ; the body was re
moved, .and the game went on
as though nothing had happened
as though another victim had
not been added to the gambler's
damning record, or another man
had not died
He started with a. large stock
of goods, given him by his father
to sell on commission,' and the
father s fortune depended' on
safe return of the money so in
vested ; but, as usual with young
men, he indulged in the . full
liberty of unbridled license, and
while the ship stopped at one of
the South American ports, he
engendered the first seeds of
"play." But for a while after
his arrival, the : excitement of
trade, and the energy necessary
to accomplish a successful issue,
kept his mind busy. One day,
by appointment, ho was to meet
a mercantile friend at this time,
and, while waiting for his friend s
arrival, staked a few dollars up
on the turn oi . the i cards, when
the latent disease sprang into
life, and it carried him headlong
over the precipice, and ended in
ii.' x ! r ; i ii,-
ine tragic manner related.
mi ITI 1 , A a
ine "LNim ae uro was a
gambling-saloon on Washington
Street, opposite the El Dorado,
and, in 1819, was - the principal
resort of the disbanded soldiers
of the California regiments and
also ofthe soldiers who had been
engaged in the war with Mexico.
Behind one of the largest monte
banks in the room sat a man who
had won for himself honorable
mention, and an officer's commis
sion was given him for his bra
very at the storming of Monte
rey; dui, preiernng tiie climate
of California - and , Its "golden"
prospects to a more northern
home, ..ho embarked for 'that
country at the close of. the war
with Mexico! and, upon arriving,
ho opened a gambling-saloon.
The emigrants came in by thous
ands, and, two or three, nights
alter ha arrival, a young man
entered the saloon and seated
himself at the bank, and staked
various sums on the cards, until
he had lost nearly all the money
he possessed.
Excited ' by , tho game, and
maddened with his losses -Ji rc
cused the dealer of cheating .the
dealer replied sharply;; the lie
passod, and then the young man
struck the dealer a severe blow;
upon the face. ' Quick as thought
the sharp report of a pistol fol-
owed, and the 'gambler b clothi
nig was covered. with th.Q:young
nianV blood ho had' sh.hin
through. jhgc jight xsiiT
topm'vas sophf" Reared of thd
spectators, present, the door
closed, aud medical, ;attchd4nce
called in to aid the wounded
man. j
The gambler sat moodily over
his ; hank, running ', the small
monte cards through his fingers,
and perhaps thinking of the
deed just perpetrated, when the
wounded man gave a moan of
agony! , as the doctor's probe
reached the bottom of the wound.
The doctor inquired what State
he was from, and the wounded
man replied: , ',
"From Vermont."
The gambler raised his bead,
for it. had been along time since
he had seen a person from the
home of his childhoocl, and, Ver
mont being the name of his'na-
tive State, the mere ' mention of
11. i . i . 1 1 ' -
Hie name lnieresiea mm. -
The doctor next inquired the
name of the place where his par
ents resided, if he had any. The
wounded man replied:.
"Montpelier."
The gambler sprang to his
feet, his limbs trembled, and his
face waspale as death, for Mont
pelier was .the home of his youth,
and perhaps the wounded man
might have been his playmate in
childhood perhaps a school-mate--knew
his parents, broth
ers and sisters. '. He clung con
vulsively to the table, and, with
the contending emotions of rapid
thought and the weight of injury
inflicted, he' could scarcely keep
upon his feet.
"A stimulant was given to the
wounded man, and he was mo
mentarily relieved from that
weakness the body is so subject
to after a severe wound, when
the doctor inquired if there was
any friend in the city he wished
to send for.
' "Yes," he replied, "my wife.
She is at the City Hotel, on the
corner of Clay and Kearney Sts.
Tell Mary to hasten, : for I am
badly hurt"
A man- was sent to bring his
wife. - ..
"Doctor," said the gambler,
"save that man's life, and there
is my bank and $10,000 in Bur
goyne, and you shall have it
alll" '
The doctor felt the pulse of
the man, and probed the wound
anew. . The gambler . watched
him with the greatest anxiety
until the inspection was finished,
when the. doctor shook his head
in token of impossibility.
The gambler sat by the side
of the wounded man bathed
his head, and stanched the flow
of blood from his wound, until
the arrival of his wife. She
came,: accompanied -by : a few
friends, and as heroic women
bear their misfortunes,. . she bore
hers.! Not a word - of reproach
passed her words of cheerful
ness only passed : her . lips,; as
tears : coursed each othec dowb
her cheeks. . To her inquiry as
to the chances of her husband's
recovery, the doctor assured her
there was no hope whatever
that the, wound was mortal, and
that in a few hours the wounded
man must die. She ; sank down
on her knees, and invoked the
mercy of; a forgiving God upon
her dying husband. and! his mur

.' The gambler, knelt at the side
of the wounded man, and asked
his forgiveness for., the great
wrong he' had committed, and
also ' that. Of his afflicted wife,
which was readily granted.
"This,'! eaid he: "is for diso

sunk down in a swoon upon the
tloor. . .' - ';
The wounded man raised him
self upon his. elbows; his glazed
eyes wandered about the room,
as if searching for some partic
ular one. ..j

The wife knelt; again, but it
was beside the dead body, and
invoked the blessing of . God on

The gambler awoke , from his
swoon, staggered up to the wife,
and said; ;
i "Mary, would it were other-

not want anything in this world ;

But before the woman could
reply, or any one interfere, the
report of a pistol sounded again.
and the fratricide had ceased to
live ! On the hill near Rincon
Point were two craves, a few
years ago, inclosed with a picket

heads, with the simple inscrip

Some time ago there lived a

the winter season, of visiting his
friends extensively. After wear

thought he would visit an old
Quaker friend, some twenty
miles distant who had been a
school fellow of his. On his ar
rival he was cordially received
by the Quaker, he thinking his
visitor had taken much pains to
come so lar to see him. He
treated his friend with great at

"NEW YORK, Nov. 6, 1872.
Samuel A. Nash. The gallant
fight made by this1 gentleman in
the last campaign entitles him
to the gratitude ' and esteem of
the Democrats and Liberals of
this District, and establishes the
fact that in an open, field and
a fair fight, Mr. Nash stands
among the ablest men of this
section of the State. : His defeat
was owing to want of organiza
zation in the new District, and
the vast corruption fund placed
in each county to control the ig
norant and unscrupulous camp
followers of the ' Administration.
Mr. Nash was comparatively a
stranger through the district, and
had not the time to make the
canvass complete. As far, how
ever, as he was enabled to can
vass, he , established . lasting
friendships and gained votes
from the opposition. His large
vote in Gallia county. running
several hundreds of votes ahead
of his ticket is a home' endorse
ment,' which Mr. Nash can carry
than can , his successful oppo
nent, the , victory so dishonestly
and disgracefully won. Logan
