I was iixetl upon to perform that duty. I had nothing to guide me. The fact, however, that Chicago was the city where the counterfeit coin was most abundant, led me to suspect that tha manufactory was somewhere within its limits. Il was, therefore, to the capital of the West that I proceeded. I 'spent live weeks in the oity witheut gaining the slighte-st oluo to the counterfeiters. 1 began to grow dieouraged, and really thoupht I 6hou'd bo obliged to return home without having achieved any result. One day 1 received a letter from my wile requesting mo to Fend souic money, as she was out of funds. I went to the hank aud aked for a drult, at the ehiiio lime bunding a turn of money to p iy for it, iu ivhi h there were several half dollars. The clerk pushed three of ihetn back to me, saving, "countci feit.' 'What 1" said I, "you don't mean to tell mo those half dollars aro counterfeit!" 'I do," "Are j ou certain I" ''Perfectly certain. They arc remark ably executed, but aro deficient in weight, Sec for yoursslf." Ar.d he placed one of them in the bal anco against a genuine half dollar, a.ul the latter brought up the former. ''This is the best counterfeit coin I ever saw in my lite,'" I excltimed, examining them cluselv. "Is all tho counterfeit tuouey in circulation, hero of the same character a3 this ! ' "0 dear, no," iho clerk replied, "it i not nenriy so we'll duue. These are the work of the fatuous New York counter ft'itcr, Ned Willoit.

"You see that the milling is not to well done as Ned Villctt's although this is pretty good too." I compared the two and fouud that he was right. I supplied the place of the threw counterfeiters with good coin, aud returned the former to my pocket. A few days after this I reeeivoJ infor mation which cauesed me lo take a jour ucytoasmall village about thirty miles i'ltim Chicago. I arrived thcro at night Rud took up my quarters at ihc only tav ern in the place, It was a wretched dwelling, and kept by an old man and a woman, the surliest couple, I think, it has ever been my lot lo meet. In answor lo whether I could havo lodging there that night I noticed the host gave a particular look at his wife, and after tome whisper ing, 1 was informed in the most ungra sound reached toy car, It wax a bcautU ful moonlight night, so bright that 1 could sec to read tho smallest print. At last I began to grow weary, and throwing myself on my pallet, I was booh plunged in deep slumber. How long I slept I know not, but I was awakenod by a dull sound, which resembled some ono hammering in tho distance. Isupposo it was tho peculiarity of the sound which awoko mo, for it was by no means loud, but conveyed to inc the idea of somo one' striking iron with a muffled hamiuor. 1 roso from my bed aud went to tho window. The moon was now in the western hori zon, by which fact I knew that it must bo near in or mug. The sound 1 bad bclore referred to reached ma more distinctly than when in the back part of the cham ber. It appeared to come from somo out. houses Which were situated a hundred yards from the house. Now I am naturally of an inquiring mind, and this sound, occurring :ta it did in lue diiuuic ol tlio mglit, piqued my cu riosity, and I felt au irrepressible desire to and dircover ihc cause of it. This dosire, as the sound continued, grew upon me with such intensity, that I resolved to gratify it at any price, 1 put cn my boots, iho only artio'o of attire I had discarded, and cautiously opened the door o( my chamber and noiso lessly descended the rickety staircase. A few steps brought ino into ihc lower apart ment, which I fouud entirely deserted. I crept quietly to tho window, and unfast ening it without making the slightest noise, was soon in tho moonlight. Not u soul was v'uable, but the sound 1 have meutioncd grew much more distinct as I approached the place from whence it proceeded. At last 1 found niyscll before a long, low building, through tho crevice of whicii I could perceive a larid glare is. suing. I stooped down aud peeped through the key hole, aud to my extreme surprise I saw half e.dosen men, with their coats oft' aud sleeves up, performing a variety of t-trango occupation. Some were work iug ul a forge, others were superintending tho c.'sting of moulds and eoiuo were en gaged iu tho pruccss of mining coin. In moment tlio whole truth burst upon mo. Here was the gang of counterfeiters I was in search ol, aud the landlord and his wife oviibntly bjlong?d to the san o hand, lor iu one corner I porceived them em ployed, thu wen polishing off sonic half dollar pii'ce?, and tho woman was packing the Guhlud coin into rolls. 1 had set'ti enough and was about tore Hint to my npartinutit, when 1 suddenly felt a In'avy hand pluoed on my hhoiild r, and turning my hi atl around, to my hor ror I ou ii d albeit in the grasp of as ill looking a tcoundrel as cvei escaped thu gallows. "What aro you doing hero, my good fellow !" he exclaimed giving mo a shake. 'Taking a stroll by iujoo ight," I re plied, endeavoring to retain my compo sure. "Well, porbaps you will just take a stroll inside, will you ?" returned the ruf fiau, ( ushiug open the door, aud dtag. ging me in after him. All the inmates of the barn immediate ly stopped work aud rushed towaid us when ihey saw me, 'Why, what's all this '.' they exclaim ed, 'A loafer I found pecpiu' outside,' said my captor. IIo's a traveler that camo to tho tavern lat.1 night and asked for lodging ; the last I saw of him he was safe iu bed,' said tho landlord, The men withdrew to a corner of the apaitment, leaving ono to keep guard over 1 butsi into u violent fit of laughter, in fact it was hytorical,but they did not know it. They looked at otic anothor in amazo nient. 4 Well j ho takes it mighty cool, anyhow,' said onci 'Supposa ho don't think wo aro in earn est,' said another. 'Come, strangpr, you had better say your prayers,' said tho man who had first spoken, 'time Hies.' iMy only reply Was a fit of laughter more violent than the firt. 'Tho man's mad,' they exclaimed. 'Or drunk,' said some 'Well, hoys,' oiied I speaking for the first time, 'ihis is the best joke I havo ever seen.

'You may bet your lifo ou that,' I re turned, swaggering up to tho corner where I had sccu the old woman counting and packing the couutcifeit half dollars. Fortune favored me. None of tho men present had ever sjen Ned Willctt, al though his reputaiion was well known to them, and my swaggering, insolent ni an- uer had somewhat thrown them off their guard, yet I could plainly see that their loubts wore not all removed. 'And you call thc.-c ihiugs well dono,do you '(' 1 asked taking up a roll of the tuonoy 'Well, all 1 havo to say is that if you can't do better than this, you had bet tcr shut up shop, that's all.' Can you show us any better I' asked one nf the men, '1 lather thiuk I can. If I couldn't I'd hang myself.' 'hvl's see it,' thry all cried. This, wui rny lust coup, and one on which my life depended. 'hook lK're.geiitlemon, I exclaimed, tak ing one of the counieifeit half-dollars! from my pocket that had been rejected nt tho bauk, 'heto is my last job, what do you think ol it !' It was hauded hand-to-hand, some bay ing it was no counterfeit at all, and some saying it wts. 'Ilow will you prove it is a counterfeit?' asked one. 'Uy weighing it with a genuine one,' 1 replied, This plan wai immediately adopted and its character proved. 'Pei haps he got this by accident,' I heard a inau whisper to another. 'Try these,' I said, taking the other two out of my pocket. All their doubts now vanished. 'Heautiful 1 exclaimed some. 'Very splendid I' said others. When they had exmiincd them to their nthf.tcliou they all cordially took mo by tho band, every particle of doubt having vanished fro u their minds. I carried ou my put well.
