PARKER'S SECRETARY.
Tin: xtory I am ahout to tell n hiten
to an Incident in tho hhtory of Kur
land which I hut little known, nnd
which you will not lind in hook, hut
ne which lie ve i'thelci had a great
i licet tu, her ilf.t it i Irs.
Alniiit the heRlnnln of this eentnry,
while tho Hjvohitl(nary war.H were
I MKliiK, eonimtinieatlon in eiher wa
iiutnrally very hrovalenl; mid Ingciiiil
ty wuh fixed to the utmost on one hand
to Invent, ÖUd oil tho ether to detect,
the medium nt-d in neeret frre" jmuhI-
tntv. Asanilo, the decliherer had
lictitcn the einher, nnd no known
method win rcetiro of detection. If
conventional blnx merely were ned,
the rrcuriciice of the dilRient nymhols
HU ve u key easily followed out. Some
Inzell Ion p,iu con e-ponded hy refer
ence to the luitfei "I'd linen of partie
ular edition of hook method, al
though they might ji reserve the m eref,
dicJosed what win often nuite a dan
Kerous, there was u secret. I am aheut
to tell you of a plan which for a long
tune wiisnot only undetected, hut un
suspected. It wiim at that time when the llrst
Napoleon had aenihled his licet and
transportHat llrct,wlth theostensihle,
nnd a i-t generally helieved the real,
view of making a decent on I'ugland.
The greatest precaution wero ohserv
id hy the Mngli--h (lovernineut in re
gard to correspondence from France,
and an amount of espionage was prac
ticed at the pot-orileo, which left Sir
Junu.H (Jruhani'i sulejiient erfor
manccs In that lino fat hehind. Tho
national exeitement was intense, nnd
the political department of tho.d'ov-
eminent were administered w ith nn
iron sway.
My uncle, Sir (Jeorge Trevor, wa,
a all tho world then knew, high in
the Admiralty nnd as it was from
him that I heard thi anecdote, its
veracity may be depended on.
Tho dispatches to and from tho Ad
miralty were the Mil Jeet of the gravest
vigilance and tho most stringent regulation-.
The clerks were not permit
ted to send or receive letter which
were not llrst suhmitted to the enief
clerk; and it wo believed that letters
addrcs.ed evcu to private residences
were frequently opened at tho post
oHUe. At tho time I speak of, tho chief
cltrk was an rlderly man of the name
of Parker a w izened, wiry, dapper
individual, so imhuetl with the oilleial
tincture of Whitehall that it had be-
, come second nature to him. He lived
and breathed and thought and slept
solely for the Admiralty, nnd knew no
other pleasure or care. He wa, with
al, a genial and kindly soul, keen and
energetic hi the attain of his ofTice,
and iu all other a mere child.
He had assumed as hi private sec
retary a young fellow of the name of
Ueaumont, w ho was one of tho most
promising subordinate in the estab
lishment. He wa modest and unas
suming, very good-looking, with a
countenance and an air suggestive of
depression and melancholy. He was
evidently of good education, and prob
bly well liorn also, for hi manners
were easy and indicated good breeding.
He was a native of Jersey, and had
been introduced to tho notice of the
Admiralty authorities by some influ
ential member of Parliament. He
WirVCIIIZKTEIt, IiM)IA.A,
was much Jikfil In the ine, nml dn-
rlmriri! hN lutlf. to irfft'tinii.
i ii i
One morning rarkt-r irofHtcd him -
wlf hofore my uncle with a vi- tj;e
I':de with woe and (reuihling with ex -
citement.
"Why, what is the matter, Parktr? , he would return in two hiy-. The little lots or marks whith hunK-ri u.-e
Han lionaparte eonu-V" I two days however, were five le fore ! to Rtiide them in writing the words
"He may have, for aught I know," j he eame hack, and was ugain eloeted ( which are to he rend were entirely ah
wild l'jrker. "Things are all wroinr. with mvuneh and Parker, with whom s nt. The wav in whhh the dtten-
Sir Coorge:"
"What is wrong?"
"The letters are wrong. There is a
spy among u. I have known it for a
long time. Now I nm quite rurc; but
I can not find him out."
Parker went on to explain that he
had for some time suspected that some
one in the ofllre communicated their
private information and di-patches
outside. He hud redoubled his pre
cautions; but, more than ever confirm
ed iu his suspicion, was entirely baf
fled in his endeavors to detect the
iulprit.
"Hut, Parker," said my uncle, "how
do you com to be so sure that your
stcrets have transpired?"
"Hy the finals, fc?ir (j'eorge. They
answer to the new as surely a the
bell down stair answer to tho bell-
rope. I llnd them going up and down,
as if they were sitting In the olllce,"
said Parker, personifying the stock ex
change for a moment.
'Have all tho letter to the clerks
been examined strictly?"
"Yes; IrciMi them nil mysell.
"Tind nothing in thvin?"
"Mighty little, homo nro from
home and some from friend-; but
most of them from sweethearts,"
Parker, twUtitig hi face into a grim
smile, "and rum thing they say in
them."
"And he yotni men's letters. Are
they rum, too""
"They are more careful like, as they
know I am to see them; but Lord save
you, sir, they uro all stuflj not a
ha'porth ol harm in them."
"This matter miht bo seen to," said
my uncle; "I have had my own mis
givings on the same subject. Ihlng
me all the letters which come to, and
are sent by, tho clerks lor the next
week. There Is no reason w hy you
should have all tho rum thing: to
yourself."
Ho my uncle had tho letter for a
week, and found them very much
such as Parker had described them.
The suspicion symptom increased;
the stoel; exchange responded more
sen-ltlvely thnn ever; but not the
slightest ground for suspecting any
one transpired. My uncle was be
wildered, and Parker wa rapidly
verging on infinity.
"It is certainly not tho clerks," mi Id
my uncle. "There is no reason there,"
Kaiil he, pushing back tho letter of
the, dny. J ty the way, how Joes
young llcaiimont got on? She seem
a nice erratum, that sister of his, to
Judge by her leltcrs."
"Hois the best hand In the olllce, a
long sight; and hU.istcr is a very sweet
ladylike creature. They are orphan,
poor things, and ho support her out of
his salary. Hho called at the olllce
two months ego, and I gavo him
leave to see her for a fow minutes iu
my room. Hut lie know it wa ngulnt
rules, and has not seen her here
again."
"Hut what uro we to !?" said my
uncle. "I think I will speak to the
First Lord."
So he spoke to tho First Lord, who
thought the niruir serious enough.
"It mti'tbo jn the leittrs," said he.
"It can not be iu tho letters," said
my uncle.
"A you please," said tho'chlef,
"iJÜt, nlthotigh you can not find it
there, perhaps another can. I would
try an expert."
My ui.ele had no fuith iu expert or
Jtowstrcet runners, and mistrusted
them. Hut he could not refuse to try
tho expel iincut suggested. So the
most experienced decipherer inlondon
was summoned into council, and to
him the letter of the day w ere secret
ly submitted.
Ho read them nil very carefully,
looked at tho light through them. At
last ho put them all aside, excepting
one from Klinor llcaiimont.
"Who Is the lady who writes this?"
said the taciturn man of skill, at last.
"A very tweet young woman," said
Parker, smartly; "sinter of my private
secretary."
"Does she write often?"
'Yes; she i hi only correspondent,
and w rites about tw ice a week."
"Whoie does she live?"
'She live in Jerey, Heauniont told
me. Their father wa in business
there."
"And does she always write ntout
the same sort of thing aunt's rheu-
uwn.s,,,, .f -nunc tea iuwucs,
...... !.... .! I
and the like."'
"Much the fame, excepting when
she speaks of Heaumoiit himself "
"Hum!" said the expert.
'Well, sir," said my uncle, who was
rather impatient of the man of skill's
pomposity, "and what may 'Hum'
mean? Have the young woman and
her aunt's rheumatism done the mis
chief?" "1 lam! She dates from Fleet street?"
"Aud why should ehe not date from
Fleet street?"
A CtlVM4 v - V a m j v w ' vaw JVI t
said the unmoved philosopher. "Has
this eonesK)iidence continued long?"
"Oh, yes, a couple of years or o;
but not nearly so regularly ns lately." ;
"For how long regularly?"
"About two months."
"That is, about the time when you
first suspected the betrayal of confl-
deuce?"

he had fallen in great ilitf.ivor.
" WontH to make a j h," i-aid the
latter; "a regular htimhug."
"Sir (icorge," said the regular hum -
hug, "has llenumont a locked desk in
it ..o
his room?"
"Yts, sir," said Parker, "helms."
"Have you a key which will open
it'.'
'I have; nnd what of that?"

"And on w hat pretense," said my
uncle, "do you propose to put thi in -

no reasonable ground or suspicion,
und w ho lias iiwt heen alloweu to speau

"There need be no insult, for ho
will know nothing of it; neither will
any one ele."
"I will not permit It, sir."
"Hum! Then I can do no more in
the business."
"Hut," said Parker, whose oilleial
notions made him unwilling to break
oll'tlic negotiation iu thi manner,
"what preteiiso have you fordoing
this to Hcaumoutuud nut to the other;
clerks?"
"Shall I tell you? There is no Mich
person as Kllnor Hcaumoiit, and the
address In Fleet street is a notorious
haunt of stHpcctcd foreigners."
VCJood graciou!" said my uncle,
changing color, "you don't my that?"
"It is the fact; but yott will see the
necessity of being cautious and silent
In the matter. Dctccthnt hangs on a
thread, a it bland?, and a whlper will
break it."
"What do you mean," fahl Parker,
"ubout Klinor Hcaumoiit? I have
set n her."
"There I no Kllnor Hcaumoiit in
Jersey. I sent and liavo ascertained
the fact."
"I am suro there 1 some mistake
about all this, which Hcaumoiit call
clear up. Let us send for him."
"If you do the game i Up. I tltlt,
in fact, ho doe not know of my visits.
We can not bo too cuutlou in this
matter."
"Pedantic nss," muttered my uncle;
"but I suppose we hud better give him
hi own way. If you meet Parker
and me here at seven to-night, we
shall have thi wonderful desk opened
and your great dlseovcrie shall be
made."
They met ngaln that evening. The
desk wa opened by Parker, and a
bundle of letters, carefully packed up,
all from Klinor Hcatimout, and a
quantity yf circulars, play-bill and
shop rcee ipt were handed to the ex
peit. That gentleman read through the
letters, and seemed much struck by
tho last.
"Head that," said he, handing It to
my uncle. A the letter is important,
I give it entire:
Ilm Fu:i:rSntu:T, Sept. 21, 1 so:).
Mv Dn.vn Ciiaki.ks: Although we
had an adverse wind till the wiiy, we
made without dilliculty tho port we
were bound for. My aunt, in spirit of
tho weight of Iter fifty years, enjoyed
the trip much, and is ready to sail
again. I hope you will think ol send
ing the lino you promised on the Ü'jlh,
and come yourself, as your party Is
now much smaller, and we should en-
Jov the vi-it.
'When I was iu London last week 1
j t .
isaw our cousin I tarry, iresn irom
Windsor. There Is hut little change
to be observed in .Mm not as much
as you would expect. Come to u on
Friday.
Yours very aflt., Kmnou H.
My uncle read this out loud, from
beginning to end, and then he t-aid,
"Do you see any thing su-picious in
thai? It seem to me very Innocent."
"Hum! It mny be. Was there any
thing ehe iu tho desk?" aid he ad
dressing Parker.
"You may go and look," growled
that potentate; and ho led the wny,
the expert follow ing.
The desk w as quite empty, with the
exception of two or three scraps of
waste paper. On one of these the ex
pert pounced, and returned with an
air of elation to tho other room. He
then unfolded this scrap of paper,
disclosed a half sheet exactly the size
of the paper on which Klinor Heau
tnont'it letters were written, in which
oblong hole at intervals had been cut.
He had then placed thi half sheet
over the letter, and handed both, thus
placed, to my uncle, whose astonished j
eye read tho following words, which
thw hoU.s ,cft viable:
Fleet w ind-bound. Fifty sail of the
line. Twenty-live smaller. Should
tho w ind change, expect us ou Friday.
"The devill" said my uncle; "and
Nclsou ordered ell to the AY est In
dies." Then was there, a you may sup-
pose, hurrying and scurrying, and !
running and chasing, and dispatching !
of Government couriers, and sema
phore telegraph?, aud carrier pigeons
and all the old world mean of com
munication then in fashion. The
key thus obtained disclosed the whole
corre$iondenee, wLich turned out to
1 a couuected terie of letters rrom
the French Government, smuggle!
into Jersey. The rest hUtory knows;
the intended invasion was abandoned
and Napoleon went elsewhere.
"Hut what put you on the scent?"
aked my uncle afterwards, with many
apologies to the expert.

"Many yenr ngo a young Scotch
emigrant arrived In New York, pen

more than a living. One day he saw
a man selling flow in iu the market,
and being p:nsloiiatcIy fond of them
he bought a pot for a Hille, and trudg

met him was attracted by tho beauty
