Not long since a gambler hud n game played . ,in him by the deck lunula and firemen on - .ard one of our W ostein steamers n game . cn stronger than that played by our second Vunieipaliiy on this class of the community in i .-.'w Orleans. It seems that ho had made out to "strike up 7 mall gamo" of poker with some ot the deck i 'aids, and that by dint ot cheating, putung uj i: e cards, and other tricks known only to those i to and who mako a living by "handling the 1 ... - pipers," he hart transicrreu nearly mi in i his revenue from their pockets into his own llu "cut and shuttled" to all appearance fair for w.mri timn. hut wns hnn v cauffllt at some ? f trirk which at once led the honest steamboat (':i,.rn into iho secret of "how the thing was !u" done," und proved that they had lost their mo- i; j ry by any oilier way man mo -un-.m iimuS- t Iho game, as a matter of course, was "block 1 I i d"' a! once, and a demonstration immediately made that the Gambler should fork over Ins ill v . fro ten pains, l ins nu riauy a-iuwu .said that he had won the money fair, and that :f ; he was vcrv clear of parting with what he f. had come honestly by. They still persisted, H i lir.d he still refused. H The boat nt length stopped to wood when the men, finding it useless to attempt regaining J' their money by fair means, resorted to a plan , ; which the gambler undoubtedly thought toul. Srf Unvimr fTaincd the consent of the engineer to use the engine for a short time, they forthwith 1 1 , Hi ; ' .1. J t X , i put a plan in execution a plan rather horde r inrronthat code of laws generally known as coming under the especial jurisdiction of Judge Lyucli. TIipv in the first place made one end ot a roue fast round the neck of the wondering gam bier, while the other was tied to the end of the piston rod. allowing him only two or three leet .slack, i ney lolu nun mat unless no suction out their money instanter they would won; the engine, and at the same time that they were not responsible for any injuries he might sus tain. ' Loin to cive up his trains the fellow cast one look at the new system of extortion, cooly calculated his chances and then told them "they might work away and be d d." "No sooner said than done; and the gambler was in, mediately seen first chasing the piston rod upon all-fours and then backing out of its way. His eye all the tunc was as lirmly set upon the rod as ever that ol Ilerr Cline or Gabriel Ravel was upon the light rope. Afiei working him forward and buck several times one of his tormentors asked him, "Dent you think it best to hand over?' "Don't bother me," retorted the gambler. "You'll get sick of that fun," said another of the bontsmen, as ho was follow ing the piston rod up in the nltitudc ofa bear. "Not as you knows on," rejoined the gam bler ns he backed out ol its way. In this way they ran upon the poor fellow for some time, he still manifesting an unwilling ness to give up his spoils. By this time all the cabin passengers had heard of the fun going on below, and went down to witness it. After a few moments respite the engine was again set in motion, and the gambler along with it. The laugh from the bystanders was boisterous and Jiearty in the extreme us the jxior fellow, in tent upon nothing hut his own safety, followed the piston rod up to prevent his neck being jerked off, and then backed out of its way to : avoid being fairly rati over and crushed. VTe can liken his looks and actions to nothing save an old bear being dragged by a chain up to The subjoined story will show that amidst u the despotism of iho Government under the Vc netian Aristocracy, and amidst the familiarity with deeds ol violence and bioousneu, wnicnovi-. ry day's history tended to increase, there were still events capable ol awakening horror in tin minds of the people, nndcro-aiing religious feel in;s so strong as to perpetuate solemnities, lor the. benefit of succeeding iicnerations. The tale is one of atrocity, showing the danger of a sen fence ofnuilt under mere picsumptive evidence l.ni it is probable that in its conscoucnce, ns here described, it was abundantly salutary in after times.
