They win or lose thousands without a tikh or smile. "Faro" in whioh the better encounters the bank, is lie prevailing game in thete tiloout and, although tables are set oat at which what is oalled "brag," "poker," aud other games are played, the principal fucinution is tbe platform covered with green leather, be hind which site tho imperturbable dealer, with his paleface, black eye, aud tuonlouous "call," whilo on three sides are gathered, sitting and standing, rauk after rank, anxious and exoittd spectators, who breathless with anxiety watch the little cards as they are dealt from tbe tin bos, aud pick up their gains ) or swallow their losses with a silence only interrupted now and then by un angry ex oluination or a quite chui H:c of exultation. Night is turned into lueruing, and the latter frequency surprises the contestants in the struggle Occasionally a streak of luck befalls an outsider, which, like a pni4 in a lottery, becomes a sort of advertisement for thq gam bler. I do not pretend to say that there is fraud in these gamts, booatse it frequently happens that there is as much skill among the volunteers as there is in the principals of the establishment, bt those whn have taken pains to investigate the faots do net hesitate teity that, unleri on extrao.-diuary occasions the bank is sure to beat those whe attempt to tuke up arms against it. Ho cautious bare the keepers of these places became that they are very careful as to whom they admit into their saloons, aud it is to this camion that the publio is Indebted for the preservation of so many of those secrets whioh, if dis closed, would undotsbtly result in great ex. oitemeut.

Tee oiilogics of Old Brown, by tho Aboli tion prrachers and politicians, have fairly roused up the conservative, Union-loving por tiou of the community to the expediency, if Dot duty, of doing something to couvinoe the South that tho masses of the people have no sympathy with the conspirators against their peace una safety. Iu Beston, Vhiladelphia and New Yoik, movements of this kind have already been set in foot.
