NIGHT IN A GAMING HOUSE. lit the year- 184 , a party were seated arolhd table in the spacious hallof asleam boat on the Mississippi .plating cards. They bad played from about nine' in the evening till bout midnight-. The party consisted of four persons, two of whom were notorious gamblers nd the other two were returning home. At near midnight, bbe of the countrymen arose from the table, ayirig to his partner: "Luck's against us Bob I . Might as well try to baat the devil, as these fellows !" "Oh, for Ood's.sake don't quit yet I Give me some chance to get back my money ?" ' "No use Bob, I'm nigh busted I Pretty near clean; swept Out." , Despair seemed written on every lineament of Bob's features, when he found that he could not persuade his friend to play. Al last he said to several who hod been watching the game, won't some of you gentle men take my partner's place. There was a pause for a few mornents.then young man scarcely one-snd-twenty, took the vacant seat saying: ' "If you have noobjeclions.I'll try a hand." ' ""Agreed !" was the rtnlr. '"Here bar keeper, give us another pack, of aru," saw itie young man. Another pack Was brought; the stranger openee uietn and banded them back again mfmp-' : ' "I want a pack of 'another Jolor. These ere the same color as those they hev been playing with. We might as well change color or luck." . ' The gamblers exchanged glances. ' Another pack was brought,- th! fame com anencea, ana tne grmtners won. Bob grew ntasy. ' - ...... "Come- let's double the' stakes P'said the tranger whose turn it was to deal. ' "Just as you like." The stakes were doubled and the stranger enu nisparnerwun. A gleam of sunshine il luminated Bob'scountennnce. Another game was played. Boo and his partner again suc cessful The stakes increase the gamblers lose. ' , "Barkeeper, bring as another pack of cards oanother color from these," said the strun ger who was about to deal. One of the gamblers looked at his partner While a dark frown overspread his feature. Three more itames were played, and Bob liad retreived bis losses. The. stranger again called for another pack of cards. At this one of the gamblers exclaimed: . "No more changing! We play with these.' "You play with what you please," replied the young man as an almost imperceptible kmile passed over his leaiures "bill if my ' partner and myself play, we must have an other paeV." ' I'ob looked al bis partner, and then at - George. ;' " ' "Stick to whatyonr partner says, Boh. tie's the right stripe, snd will come ont head "aofso tt I'm a nigger,'"' exclaimed George (topping Bob on the shoulder.' - ' "1 agree to what ' my partner says." said Colt in reply to tbe gambler's looks of inquiry. . The gamblers exchanged look and then con cerned to the arrangement. ' Four more games weie played, and each lime Mob and the stranger won. t " It wns nrain the stranger's ideal. One of Ibe gamblers Matched him closely, and sud denly exclaimed 1 a You -young villain 1 Cheating are you ." ','Playiiig with yeu at your own game.

It is said thst 'truth is stranceririan fiction.1 and it is exrmplified in tbe iriul an.l execmiop of this raiinlerer. On the 24:h day ot Ftbru-' 1854, he was eoii;ni;tled to iail charaed I witn the murder of hi daughter. Shortly af- terwards he employed three very competent attorniea for h. defense. At the April terml (1864) of the Court of Common Pleas, he weai""K indicted by the Grand Juiy. At the July term' was tried, wi'hout anv altoruies to dfend he having dischnrned those lie had pre i viously employed, and obstinately refusing to have any person to attond to his case. He dntvedly indifferent riuriiis the whole course of the trial, to evcrythinir nasuie around him, appeared to pay but lillie alien tion to what the witnessea were testifying, and in no esse would he ask them any questions, j The Jury at that term could not agree, eleven being in favor of conviction. of murder in the first degree, and one for murder in the second degree. At the November term he was again tried; still refusing to employ counsel and to be de fended by those who voluuteered to conduct his defense. Particular attention was given by Judge Me tea If to the case, and '.lie rights of the prisoner carefully guarded, that be might have a fair and impartial Vrial. The evidence in the esse was clear and nn-i questionable, and the Jury after a sb irt ab sence from the box returnea a erdictof "guil:y of murder in the first degree." During the trial he preserved a stolid indifference to all that was pussi-ic around him, and when the sentence of death was passed upon him, he scarcely moved a muscle of his countenance, and nppeared not to be in the least affocied. From lint time until his execution he was repeatedly visited by ministers of the gospel and other piouv persons, who desired tu pray with him and converse on the subject of re ligion and his preparation for his apuroacliiun death. But he obstinately rejected their kind ofiVrs and replied to them with not only, f.ivo loU3 but vulgur and blasphemous remarks. 'I he morning ol the execution, nerved as he was by desperaiioB and rai;e, it required half a dozen men to drug hint from his cell, although he was hand-ruffed and chained. When in the hall of the jail, he paced backward and forw id the length of his chain, like sow wild animal, making coarse and indecent re murks to the by-stauders. Although appealed to by ministers and oth ers, who were present, to nave prayfig ofl'erud up in his behaif, be obstinately refused and remarked that ''he wanted no praying done about him, ' and lie would not converse on serious subjects. The expression of Ins coun tenance and the glare of his eye, were that of a devil in human shape, a ml Hie chain and handcuffs were, as he remarked himself, all that prevented him from clearing out by force all who were in the jnil. At time, when pacing back and forward in the hall be trembled as if he were struck with palsy, but remarked that he was not cold, nor scared, but that it was only the trembles which fia ht) ccry uey. s' - He looked upon the scaffold with perfect composure, made jesting remarks about it and the rope, saying he would break the rope the first kick. He made no confessions and when spoken to about his child, said he had done no worse than other men. From remarks which he made, it appeanrd that he expected that the irons would be taken off and his clothes Chanted befnre he was hung and then he again would make the effort to kill the sheriff and his aper.dsnt3. Although a small man, he was very active and muscular, and it required several ordina ry men to handle him. He walked upon the scaffold without any asistance. When appealed to there to know whether he had anything to say, he remarked thst if they w uld let him out he would get a lawyer and have a trial. He contended that he had no trial in court and said he wa3 not ha f tried before the justice. After the rope was placed around his neek, and the cap diawn over his face, he made a desperate effort to resist, and it required sev eral men to keep him on the, scaffold. - At half past eleven o'clock he was swung off. A shudder passed over his fraTie, his flesh quivered for a moment, and the death struggle was over. He was so hardened in sin, so indifferent to bis fate, io blasphemous and indecent in his. conversation to the very last, that but little sympathy was exci'ed m his favor and all who were present appeared to look on calmly and unmoved. ICTOn New Year's day as a downtown mer chant entered his house, he was met by his wife, who threw around his neck a gold.iliaiii. "There, hubby," exclaimed his wife, "ii a New Year's gift for you !" "Ob, yes," re joined the husband with great coolness, "I paid the bill for it about an hour ago." "You did,", exclaimed the lady with equal indiffer ence, "why I told the juweler to let it go on tlie July bill." . TA Quakeress, being jealous of her hus band, took occasion to watch his movements rather closely, and one morning, actually dis covered the- truant hugging and kissing the pretty servant gir whilst seated on the sofas by her side: Broad brim was not lonir in di ckering the face of his w ife, a she peered through the open door,jnd, rising with all the coolness of a general, thus addressed her; .,. "Betty, my wife, thee had better quit ihj peepimr, or thee will cause a disturbance iu the family." The effect was electricsl. JjDuring Tyler's administration, Conercss passed a bill into a law in spite of the Presi dent's veto. ' It was an act respecting the building of revenue cutters.
