An odd rn.nl of a personage, as retarded
hi* pets, was old .Mr Oriugtou, and he had
induced his peculiarities to his heart's
content in these latter jeers, and there,
on the head t one tret*-post' while John
tJraptey leaned against the other, perched

'•lt's more than likely," John eontiuaed,
with a petulant glance at Martin. " that
the old man has got the doctor here now
to cook up some confounded change in favor
of that white faced girl and her brother.

" Oim a caw," philosophised Martin.

The low and tine-hung window of old
Mr. Ovipgrton's •< study" was opened wide
that Sumner afternoon, and a man who
ciiose to crouch under it, as John Gnap'ey
did, oonld hardly fail to hesr most oi what
might be said, is any ordinary tone of
wad, by those withiu'tbe room.
John had slippedboiseleosty away, froai
the gate, hawing the tame crow to his own
meditation-: but Mart>w Was a sociable
bird, and had already rouiplettd his. ob
servations of the doctor's horse sod buggy.
He wau morally sure that be coukl steal
neither, and they were therefore matters
of tndiiereoce to him. But we must go a
little ahead of Martin.
Wbt-a, seme twenty minutes earlier,
Doctor Prmdk ted entered tbe booms, bs
bad beea ushered into tbe study by sweet
-Diets Ovin&ton hem!? daughter of that
Adrian <>Tingt cm, whose runaway love
match bad embittered 90 many years of his
lathe, a existence.
A lovely prl, indeed, was Alice, of not
yet eighteen Summers; and it was n>
wonder that her stern grandfather had
opened his heart to his son's dying peti
tion in behalf of her and her brother.
Doctor Prindle was one of tho* brisk
but dignified old gentlemen who know al
most e very-thing, say vary littV, and are
waweedinsiy valuable member-, of society.
Alice told htm that her brother tleorge
was well, and would soon be home bom
colkfe, to spend too mention with hi
grura father.
"Ye?, Alice," said the doctor; " kt hits
spend it all here, Tt will be better."
And then he disappeared tbraugb the
study-door, dosing it East behind him.
Alice harried away, to atteAd to house
hold affairs, and the muffled sound of
voices from the study died quick!v away.
Very few words passed, at hist, between
Mr. (hiogton ana bis counsellor, and the
old man's red and choleric visage betrayed
no atom ot emotion, as be took from" its
envelope a paper of every moderate dimen
sions. and spread it on tiie table, saving;
"There if is, doctor. I euep you'll End

" Sensible thing. Glad of It," growled
the doctor, as be settled himself in bin chair.
A moment more, an 1 he was deeply en

"Ca-aea-eawP croaked a doubtful
voice at the window; and then JUurt hi'
biirself flapped heavily in. and perched on
the rabte bqpidc bia master.
" Martin, my boy, it's all right. I only
wish you could sign as a wit new."
" Ca-a-cav," said Martin.
"[wish be couki," said Dr. Prindlo;<
but aa you've only got old Hector's name
here, I suppose you will want mine. It's
all right, otherwise."
"Of course it is," gasped the old gentle
man. "It's a copy of toe one you drew, j
in all but the names and the division. It's j
no injustice to John Grapley. He is wellj
. taken care of, and, besides, he has proper-1
ty of his own, from his mother, and he
has no claims of blood 00 me."
" Still, it cuts him out of a very com
fortable pile," said the doctor. " Where's j
the pen* That rascally bird! Look at
him. There be is on the top of the book
oase. with the pen in his mouth." ' 4
"Martin, vou scamp," laughed bis raas
come down with that pen, or I'll
disinherit you. Never mind, doctor.
Don't look at him, and he'll bring it bade
in a minute. He's fond of stealing, but
be never keeps anything long."
Sure enough, in tbe course ol two or
three minutes tbe pen was on the table
again, and meantime tbe two (riends talk
ed on.
*' John will hardly be pleased with this,"
said the doctor.
"I shan't care, then, whether he is or
not, and I don't care much, anyway."
* Have you destroyed the other will V 1
"No; but I'm going to. It's over
there in the secretary. Yon will know
where to find this one, if you outlive me."
" All right," said the doctor. " Martin
has brought back the pen." It was a slow

tor. 44 Well, tbe pen can go pwviped."
" He'll bring it back again. Martin is a

" Ca-a-caw P exclaimed Martin, and tbe

Their WlffMlkfl had not been in

The young man's tep Invsme even mote

ckwely on each othar, as he laid his hand

turned in his grasp, and he stepped within.
The ro.wu wa* empty of hunun forms,
ami John (.iripley's eye* wandered in vain
search around the room -not finding some
thing they expected. A few loose papers
on the table were hurriedly turned over,
and as hastily thrown down, with a sharp
: exclamation of angry dcisatnfaetioii.
The key was In the secretary, but John

he turned It in the lock. He did turn it,
however, and then at least his search
seemed to be successful; for from one ol
the little pigeon-boles he drew and opened
a long yellow euvelope.
John gave the paper which he held in
bis hand but one suilt, keen, eager glance,
and then hru*. it into an iuaide pocket ol
his coat, muttering;
u At all events, he shall nvidestroy this.
He has got the other with liim now, and
1 must trust to luck to get it out of the
wav. Now, I must get out ol this."
He put the empty envelope back in the
pigeon-hole, locked the secretary, lelt the
key as he found it, and hastened away.
11l dfclhiot tnake his appearance near his
home again until the next day at noon.
It was Ute taat evening before old Mr.
Oviugtou returned from town, weary with
his unaccustomed walk, and anxious only
to get straightway to bed. It was late in
the morning when he arose, and then his
Devon* and his other mute favorites kept
him for a time from tiw cosv study.
Aline Orington had looked at the cattle
with him, and Martin had cawed gracious
ly about them a* if he considered himself
a good judge of both brutes and human
being*; but John Grapley did not put in
his customary apprarxnc •.
When hg did return, however, halt an
hour later, he aa* iet in the gateway by
the form ol" his stepfather, looking a foot
taller thau usual, Iwiag, literally, in a
" towering'' lit of anger.
"Johu Grapley, do you know where
they are—do vou 1"
"Where what are? What on earth's
the matter P gasped John, with a well
assumed look of bewildered innocence.
" The will, you scoundrel, the will!
Both of them! Give them up or I'll "
Alas for swollen veins and hasty pa*
rioas! For, as John Grapley quailed and
trembled before the wrathful face of bis
stepfather, suddenly the old man put on a
strange and set expression, b'w tongue ceas
ed to <>b. y hi* angry will his limb* tailed un
der him, and the old gentleman sank help
less on the grass!
John Grapley'* face wore for a moment
the look of a reprieved criminal; but he
returned his self-poesessi ai, and no alarm
could have been more prompt and loud
than that which be sounded.
Mr. Oriagtoa was borne into the house,
and medical aid was summoned.
Johl went himself for Dr. Prindle; but
coukl hardly even simulate vexation on
learning that that gentleman had been
dhilgd aira# to an important consultation,
aatf wtnnd not be home under two day*.
Fbvsiciam were to lie hid in abundance
however, and they came; but they came
too late to do anything helpful for Mr.
Ovitigton. The silver cord was loosed,
and his pitcher was utterly shattered at
the fountain of life.
Great was the consternation of poor
Alice Ovington, and it was great help to
her that tier brother George came home
next day, in the midst of the funeral pre
prations. Still, both Geotge and Alice
foamd themecive* of * nail account in the
house of their grandfather, for George
Grapley had taken all matters in charge
at once", and issued his order* with the air
and manner ola well-assured proprietor.
At first they did not uiind it much, though
George Ovington, more relfim than hi*
suiter, remarked to himself that it augured
little of good for their future prospect*.
Poor Martin had not teemed to com
prehend the terrible change tn the house
hold affair*, and perhaps hit instincts of
self-[reservation taught him to do hi* al
lowance of discontented cawing at a safe
distance from the spirted bands of Johu
The succeeding day had been act lor the
funeral, and the coffin lay in the old, deep
wtndowei drawing room* which was, per
fhrec, dl! thrown open (or the circulation
of the warm Summer air, and the entrance
of the unsympathieiug sunlight.
More than an hour before the time fixed
for the funeral, Dr. Priudle drove up to
the gate, threw hie reins on bis horse, and
strode into the bouse. He gave George
Orinetoii a hasty eraspof the hand, spoke
to Alice a few kindly words, and then
tfent on irrtri the parlor.
Here he was standing in sorrowful si
lence, bis usually firm feature* working
slowly a* he gazed down npon the fa e of
bis old friend, when he beard a step beside
him, and the voice of John Grapley said :
" Ah, doctor, I am so sorry you were

nothing for him, hut just before he was

" That, indeed, he did," replied the doc
tor, hat somehow he did not feel called
upon to say any more.
Ca-a-caw, 'added a hoars-, complaining
voice at the window; but the flap of de
parting wings told that Martin'* policy
was still one of doubt aucl prudence.
Here," said John, "i* an envelope ad
dressed to yourself, which 1 hare taken the
liberty to open, as it is unsealed, and aa 1
have long known it oonttinedj my step

" You know its contents, then ?"
'• Oh, yes, of course. They are in ac
cordance with bis repeated assurance* to
ray sainted mother and mvaclf. As it is
in your own handwriting, i can tell you
nothing, except that I shall take pleasure
in carrying out what I believe to have
been Mr. Ovington's intentions toward tb#
children of his disinherited son. They
shall always have a home and good previ
sion while I live."
" Ah—yes, indeed,l hope so," abstracted
ly returned the doctor. " Are you sure
there is no other will V*
♦ Quite sure. I have searched every
where," replied John.
" WelL, as 1 am named sn executor under
this instrument, I shall deem it my duty
to take a look on my own account," half
curtly rejoined the doctor.
I might have something to say as to
what is done in my own houae," replied
John; "but I have no manner ol objec
tion. Let as go to the study."
Jobn Gropfey might we'Jl have waived
all objection, for his search bad been most
thorough, and he was altogether sure that
no subsequent seeking would reveal more.
He had been haunted by a fear that the
doctor himself could account for the paper
wbfwe absence had so excited Mr. Oving

Caste (n India, *
The Calcutta correspondent of the
London Timts gives the following ac
count of the ree-ut outbreak of prison
ers at Bareilly jaii, an u -eurrenoo which
rauka in importance with the awuwtua
; tion of Chief-Justice Norman :
" The ontbreak occurred ou the uight
of the 6th of September, and a commis
sion of inquiry, which Was Immediately
afterward* ap*puiatr*l. received instruc
tions to report on fhe conduct of Dr.
Eudca, superintendent of the jail, who
had a short time previously removed the
Juntos, or Brahuiiuieal threads from tlu*
prisoner*. The commission rejKirts that
the act of Dr. K tdea waa it My to cause
the worst possible results,' ud that it
was unprecedented, no prisoner having
up to that time bwen deprived of hi*pre
cious thread, the Isujge of liis dignity a*
a defendant from the goda. The his
tory of the outbreak, therefore, dale*
from the deprivation of thread*. The
Brahminical ' thread' it a simple skein
o' cotton, cotapooed of thin thread* fas
tened together in three*. I believe the
minimum number of distinct thread*
ought to be six, each three of which are
termed dhoondee. The threes may be
multiplied at pleasure. Tl.c skein hiuiga
from the left shoulder, and fall* as low
as the palm of the right hand when the
arm is stretched by the Brahminical side
To take away a Brahmin's thread is to
break his caste. Dr. E.ules found, a*
many persons have found before him,
that this bit of common cotton thread
was to the prisoner the pmwjiort to a
great many privileges. No warder would
report a prisoner who wore the sacred
thread, be the prisoner'* behavior what
it might Dr. Lodes had power by the
jail rules to remove the clothiug of the
prisoners, and what, he argued, was this
thread but clothing. The threads were
removed. Every Brahmin prisoner wa*
degraded, was no longer of the material
that first issued from Brahma's head
when the different caste* -.end race* of the
world were made. Henceforth any
warder might say of the degraded Brah
min what the prison rules demanded.
The degraded prisoner* refused their
food. Dr. Eades paraded them, and
flogged a refaetnry cook, after which the
men ate their food, and the victory over
cssle seemed complete. Probably Dr.
Eades went to bed that night con vine-*1
that he had secured a place in th his
torr of India. Ala* for tinman schemes
and resolves ! The Hindoo* were imme
diately played npon by some Mohamme
dan prisoners, and to such good pur
pose that an attempt to break open the
jail was decided upon. Two Mohamme
dans devised a plan for cutting away a
rivot from one of the barrack doors
Thread, emery and glass were procured
—the first two, it is feared, by the eo.i
uivance of sotue sulxirdinaUi official of
the jail. At 11 o'clock in the night, the
rivet, previously filed through, was
knocked awty, and forty-seven of the
prisoners rushed into the yard. There
was only one gat# between them abd
full freedom. To this gate a fierce rush
was made, the prisoner* arming them
selves with portions of looms which
were stored in the onter yard Bad knock
ing down several sentries on the way.
But before the gate could le broken
open thirteen men of the police guard,
brave Jemadars, were nt their heel*,
and a desperate harid-to-hand fight en
sued. So well did the watchmen man
age that not a man escaped at that point,
and the nature of the fight may be
I judged from the fact that of thirty-seven
wounded prisoner* twenty-one were dis
abled by clubs and only sixteen hy gun
shot*. On the approach of help from
the prison officers the pri*oners ran to a
corner of the yard and tried to escape
by standing on each other's shoulders
Severn 1 were shot down here by the po
lice, who by this time were in some
force on botli skies of the wall. Seven
of the prisoners escaped, but four were
recaptured. Those inside fought furi
ously, and nt last, after several fierce
sallies on the police, they were fired
upon. They Hum ran along the wall,
but made two more stands the moment
the police overtook them, and in each
case they had to be fired on before they
gave ground. After thin they were all
Kew York Swindlers.
Many novel and ingenious methods of
earning a subsistence without labor have
lately been brought to light. The most
notorious of them is whatjbns lx>en call
ed the "sawdust swindle," the exposure
of which has developed some very inter
esting and eurions facta. The origina
tors of this scheme have for the jsist few
years flooded the country with circulars
offering counterfeit bills at a very tow
price. After forwarding the purchase
money aa requested, all the applicants
receive are small, neat wooden boxes
which contain small pieces of cast-iron
wrapped in shavings or imbedded in saw
dust When the dupes write and ask
for an explanation, they receive a* mys
teriously-worded circular, headed " cau
tion," informing them that [the Police
have obtained a clew ana are on the
track, and that the box JXtfltainiog the
iron and saw-dust is merely a " blind"
and the dupe is earnestly requested to
keep " dark " for a time to save himself,
and when the thing ha* blown over, the
real counterfeits will be duly forwarded.
This i* a trick, of coarse, and is only re
sorted to by the swindlers to keep their
victims quiet while they ensiiare others
in the same fold.— N. Y. Paper.

of the " Sinking Fund. " or the onra of

for the next fiscal year I have not includ
ed hi the receipts the premium on gold
which may lie sold, nor in the exjiendi
turos the premium which may ho paid on
bond to lie purchased in currency. In
the suggestion I hare the honor to make
in reference to the reduction of taxes, I
keep in view two important f icta ; first,
that the ability of the nation to liny nt
least SSO,(K)O,OKt, mutually of the princi
pal of the public debt shall not he im
paired, and wewndly, in the revenue ays
tern no violence shall be done to the bus
iness interest* of the country. While I
do not undertake to state precisely the j
causes which have contributed to the
public prosperity, there is no substantial
reason for on est toning the truth of the
statement that the last five yean have
been the most prosperous in the history
of the country—years without example
in our own affairs, and without parallel
in the affairs of any other Osvernmeut.
THE DATE or IT. —The story told of
awitnen in an English conrt who testi
fied with great minuteness ax to the color
of wax used in scaling a will, the, kind
of matches used to light the taper, and
other particulars, when the aeal was
only a wafer, bad its parallel tho other day
in the Superior Criminal Court in Bos
ton. A noted individual named Spencer
weites was on trial for forgery, and a
witness was produced to prove an alibi
Tho swore that the prisoner was in New
pork on a certain day, Jan. 27,1866, and
Produced a diary in confirmation of the
statement, testifying that the entries re
lating to the affair a ere made at the
time. The diary being examined by the
District Attorney and the Court, it was
found that it bore the printed date of
1869. It was not considered necessary
I to ocoes-exiuniue the witness.

ter dsUd at llutotunaoii, Minamata, dm
scribe* Che upatatiqns of a roup brigade
orgnnked to fight thepralriefire ; There
was a tire cofujuaiy formed in Hutchin
son, who were to go out at any time,
aigbt or day, t theory of alarm, to fight
fire. There are about forty of them in
all. Sometimes tlmy would go out in
one direction and work till thsy had put
out the fire, and come home and turn in i
to rest, and within half aa hour would
be summoned again in anotbor direction
to flgtrt tli# advancing fianws. Horses
would be harnessed, attached to what
ever vehicle cade first in the "Way, and
uo questions asked, and awgy they would
go. Mr. Putnam, the hardware mw
fhuut, wa* called the "General" of the
brigade, and under his lead they did
splendid service. Lawyers and mse
chants would throw off their bt ttec gar
ments, and, enveloped in old cloth##,
and armed with "naopa," as they called
tiiem-r which oqususted of old Vtags tied
firmly to broomstick* and soaked in wa*
tor—would march to the front of the
fterv battle. The towa waa many rimes
threatened, hut the etßnfcasy of the fire
| brigade saved it- Evry hotel and store
would hu\ o about a dozen of thaw
"mops" on the steps raady for cotton.
