TIIE TALL MAJOR'S STORY. Bleu* my heart ! Stopped payment ? floLCSOFT. In the middle of the main street of Castlebar there still stands a low two storied house. Its external i* sadly changed for the worse s a huge crop of dank grass covers the load of rotten thatch, which ha* been accumulated for a century, and the lower portion of the hall dour has disappeared, thus afford ing the pig a comfortable communication with the interior. The respective inha bitants (for every chamber in tenanted with an interesting samp'e of the six mil lions) have displayed great ingenuity in counteracting the numerous assaults committed upon the casements by the storm, ami fully bear out the proud boast of the progeny of Ihe Emerald Isle, that the resources of "the Gera of the Ocean" are illimitable. But poorly as now look the premises, lodgements were once made, and lo. effected there ; for that ruined house was the bank and residence of Constantine Carney. Cod Carney, when I was gazetted to the 25th regiment, was in the zenith of his fame. You have your commercial banks, »nd your saving banks, but what are they to Con Carney's. 1 love togivfc a graphic sketch, and you shall have Con in all his glory. I well remember the morning ip which the post brought my appointment. My aunt («he's g*me the wav of all flesh God be good to her !) i witched me on the elbow, and I dutifully fallowed her to her chamber. The door was carefully closed —a key, with great deliberation, drawn from the inner partition of her pocket— for my aunt's was a double one. »'Denis, mv darling boy, you are going into the world, and have taken tu an hon oroble calling, becoming one of your name, and moreover one so nearly con nected with the O'Tools my aunt was an O'Tool—"keep yourself clean,and let o man tread upon your cortis.as wasmy poor uncle's parting advice to ray brother Phelim, who died a full M«jur in die I (ish Brigade. Here"—and she extrac ted a small paper from a compartment of her housewife—"lake th'» »„ the bank. .,hJ the Lord be with you !" She wineilUj herejea with the corner other figured M pron. "Dorrt be cast down, my dear boy : we were always a lucky family ; and I hope to live to see you return like Col O'Callagheo, with your wooden leg arr twelve and siipence a day." My aunt's present was an order to Con Carney for twenty pquoda, and I proceeded to the hank. In the outer room, behind a narrow counter which separated him From tu« customers, sat a one eyed clerk, with a pe» behind liis ear, telling over a bundle of shilling notea, which Con f 019 ** scar city of change, bad put in circulation. ' pr-v»r, v eJ Oy order. Lui, e Lynch dfrec *ed his'solitary optic at - the p*?*!*, *?•£ perceiving it was a weighty transfer, pointed to the inner door, and 1 was speedily in the presence of the man of money. Wealth and gout are said to be insep erablu companions; and how should Con Caro escape ? There he sat—a short punchy man, his infirm foot implicated with divers rolls ofllannel, reeling on a low cushion. On the table stood a pewter ink-stand, with its Ksgle's quill} and the large dog-eared account book—for Con knew nothing of your double entry system—was lying o pen before him * Con was in prodigious credit ; his shil ling notes passed current as the king'* own coin. The private purse of every thrifty matron in the parish was consid ei ed insecure until confided in hia eus tody 1 and there was not an old maid for miles around who did not keep an account in the bank of Castlebar. The small farmer requested, as a particular favor, that lie would take charge of a "trifle of money to portion the little girl off;" & the priest himself lud been found, more than once, closeted with the banker;—and most auspiciously so. just after the Easter and Christmas dues had been collected, But there were others besides depos itors, who sought the domicile of Con «fantine Carney. He was blessed with three thumping daughters, and many a lover sighed in the little left hand parlor, From the crowd ol competitors for her fair hand, Patsey' Blake bore the bell, and led Sibby Ca'rney, blushing to the hymeneal alter. Pataey's patrimony had been crielly disorganized; but thing* noon altered for Hie belter—debt» were discharged or liquidated—the old bouse was new!, roughcast, and putnnafresh andjauntjr air; andColghawn Muck—ihv'lown disignatton of the mansion—and being interpreted, the "pigs* ateppingjreached stones," was voted vulgar, and Castle'maid. Muck submitted in its place. Nor did the prosperity of Patsey Blake pass unnoticed in the neighbourhood.— t Sally Carney, the second of the graces, u-as be-ieged by a beaux f und never did de-pei ate suitors go more desperate lengths since the days of Penelope— God knows how matters might have ended, when, in tile nick of time, who should arrive tu recruit, but Lieutenant Corcoran, of the 18th Royal Irish. The Lieutenant was a buid man; numbers did nut deter him, and he determined to call the gentle Sally his or perish. He tonk the field immediately—politely in twnating that any attention tu Miss Carney woold be considered by him per solut ; and finding notwithstanding, that Philip O'Flaherty, Ksq. persevered in be ing civil, he requested the honor of that gentleman's company one blessed raorning, to the race course and winged him, the said Philip, in a workmanlike style, as was fully attested by a large & impartial assemblage.—Mis. Sally Car ney, to prevent farther effusion of blood, surrendered at discretion, and Lieuten ant Corcoran appeared shortly in the gazette, promoted to a company in the "88th,by purchase." 1 joined my regiment. Time rolled My .mail remittance from M.yo showed me that my friend Con was still alive and merry; for these subsidies reuerally reached me in the shape of a sill ,,n London, and Con Carney —oh ! what an autograph it was !—usually sprawled across it, either before or be hind, with o large splash beneath, and as many concentric circles as the hooker of an Indian resident. Notices of Con and his family were frequent in the elaborate epistles of my auul O'Toole. I lound she had, on a certain day, ta ken an airing in the Castle Muck car riage—that Mrs. Major Corcorau had trécit safely delivered ot twrns—that Miss Btildj, the youngest, had hod her name changed to Sophia—and that c Carney family were sorely perplex _Con to employ excessive capital, and Biddy, alias Sophia, to dispose ot accumulating admirers. Time still kept rowthig, as an Irish coachman would say, "peace was pro claimed—I escaped from the slaughter,'' and once more returned to my nativ, r • I of [town, I «bal never wineilUj father was waiting * *" l '' a-Wee, and I thought ha would have aha M ib : ken my arm front tile »boulder joint Aly I poor mother« (the Major's eyes filled.) there she stood waiting behind the hail door folded me to her heart, and then held roe at arm*« length to aasore herself of my identity.

I had slept long rind soundly. 1 found the family collected in the parlor—the breakfast table in fall preparation—the urn gurgled, the eggs wero ready — my aunt had actually raised the enngo to her lips when the door,and our old butler stood gaping and terror struck, exhibiting equal alarm to thatoc casluned by the gentleman who Uresr 'Prim'scurtain in tne dead ol night.'

A few da,.elapsed-the state of the was indracribaole—all classes had which'*uffereilalike,lbrCon*aanillingnute&had ateppingjreached even in the pneket of the kitchen Castle'maid.

At a full meeting of my aunt's, to play for noth i»g was voted a «info wa* e nl time. & to play on credit a dangerous alterna live; and the loo club came to toe des per.te determination of discontinuing. these meeting, for the present; and ré solved that this visitation was inflicted no them for their sins through the egeo cy of Con Carney, During this period Con Carney refe sed alt proffered rnterviews or consola lion To all inquiring friends, it wka answered that he was ill of the gout in buth legs, and that hit heart was broken in the bargain. I he magistrates found it difficult to prevent the mub from polling down the house; when late one evening a note ar rived with C. C. upon a seal as targets a saucer. Hastily my fatheropaned if, end dispetched M.ik for Dr D.r.n end Father Malachi. They came, and he read Con's epistle. It was a roundabout concern, set lurth misfortunes at large, dwelt much on Ilia unbounded honuty, touched feelingly on the sufferings of his little girls—all this my aunt O'Tool designated flummery. At the dose, Con reqoested a suspension of all opinion until he could see his valued friends tatlier, the doctor, and the priest, and then fie, Cou, could open the state of his affair» to these trusty confederates, Sx had no doubt but that any impression made against his integrity would be ré moved in toto. The Doctor was the first to break dive silence. "He never could doubtlhc hon esty ofCon Carney.
