The firm of Flint and Sharp enjoyed, whether
deservedly or not, when I was connected with
it, as it still docs, n high reputation fur keen
practice and shrewd business-management.
This kind of professional fume is usually far
more profitable than the drum and-trumpet va

it so ; and often, from blush of morn to far Liter

me during thirty busy years in the extin'iii-h-

She retired instantly. Flint rose and station
ed himself close by tholonr. Presently a sound
inif, cnnlident step was heard alouj the p issagc,
the library door swung back on its noiscies
hinges, nnd in sialket a man of nnnarcntlv
about thirty-five years if i,Co, tall, genteel, anil
soldier-looking. He stprled back on seeing me,

cried Chilton angrily ; but spile of his assurance,
visibly trembling beneath Flint's tcurchlng,
ill-sneering look.
'Nothing very remarkable,' replied that pcii-
llcman, 'or unusual in our profession. Come.

The rascal '.'rumbled a good deal ; but as
there was no help for it, he took the security,
signed the agieeinent, and walked oil".
'A sweet nut that for the devil to crack,' ob
served Mr. Flint, looking savage'y alter him.

Three days passed without any further ti

that Ins journey had proved a fruitless one,

Aot it 1 Unow it, my fine lellow, rejoined
Mr. Flint, 'lou mean well, I daro say : bull

either sleep here or at a station house.'
Tho man started with surprise and alarm ;
hut knowing refusal or resistance to be hope
less, sullenly assented to the arrangement, and
withdrew to the room appointed for him, vigi

We found Hie drawing room of S-yton Hoiie
occupied by the llnuorahle J unes Kingston, Ins

Tho children were 1 'aving the appartnient us
wo entered it, and the grief-Jinuncd eyes nf the
Connies rested sadly upon her bright-eyed
boy as he tlowly withdrew with his sisters".
That look changed to ono of wild surprise as
it encountered Mr. Flint's shining, good-humored
countenance. I was more composer!
and reserved than my partner, though feeling
as vividly us he did the satisfaction of bcinu
able not onlv to dispel Lidy Seyton's anguish!
but to extinguish the e.vilii'itinn, and trample on

and bilging himself with Ihe thought that all
that was Ins! liusiness was immediately pro

peated his formei story xcilialim, and with much
lli.ency and confidence. Ho then placed in the
hands of Jackson senior the vouchers signed
by Cunningham and Mullins. Tne transient
light laded from Iidy Seylou's countenance as
she turned despairingly, utmost accusingly,
lowards us.
' What answer have you tomako to this gen
llem.in's statement, thus corroborated V de
manded Jackson senior.
Quite a ri'in.iik'iblo one,' replied Mr. Flint,
as ho rang the hell. ' Desire too gentleman in
the library to step up,' he added to the foot
uriii who answered tho summons. In abou'
