Ihc ii.Lr whh ju9t closing in. in Die NfJsM of the .Mississippi, when tlie tigure of a man emerged from a thicae in the MObttta of Graf ton. Illinois, and made for the town. Kefore leaving what bad cvidentlv beeti bis hiding place throughout the da;., lie looked cautiously around him. us If he sought to sift the gloom or any danger, and then stopped boldly forth. He was of tue middle m.c, neither robust Off slight, b t presenting angles, which, w icli hie OJSJBOli step, denoted both activity and treagth. lie shadows ot evening were cool with the Brat breath of fall, and the Btranuer was wrapped in a long grev coat which envelo. ped the greatest part ot his figure, while over i e.vc;j ,vaa ,lrn out of a coarse felt ! hat. so as to shroud the greater ponton of Ml face. After bis pause, ou breaking cover he stepped forward at a quick pace, and holding bis way towards the town for the distance of a quarter. i a mile made a rapid detour to the north so as to avoid its circle, aud then bent bis way in tbe direction of tbe river. He bad pursued this course for alout half a mile fur ther, when he found himself in tho vicinity of a wretched looking cabin, which gave token of inhabitation, by a thin streak o?' light that in vaded the gloom from a tissnre near tbo eaves. The man slackened his pace as he approached the hovel, and treading lightly and cautiously, looked around bin at every step. Arriving within a few feet of it, became to a full stop, and putting bis hand in bis bosom, drew forth a pistol and careful'v examined tbe lock, as well as tho starlitrbt could enable him. Having eatisried himself that bu weapon was in prop er order, be seemed re-assurod. and advan Old up to the hut. I!e went st:l! more carefully than bafoft, and having reached the entrance applied his eye to tho kojbolo, aud then placed Ins ear atrcutive'.y against the door.

Presently tbo sound was echoed within tho hut aud hard upou tbe note was beard the noise of holts withdrawn and barricades removed. In the next moment the door was slowly opened, and a man presented himself, in the unligbted entrance and gave auotuer wiusne in a uitieront note. ino sig nal was answered in the new strain by tbe man in the grey coat, who, advancing upon the to ken, recognized the keeper of tho portal and went inside. When the sttanger entered, there was no light visible in the dwelling : but the person who had let him in after refaBtemng tbe door, went up Btairs and brought bown a UBp, Whooa BBBfJ ipfllianai a! keeping with tbe wretched show of(the furniture of the apartment Has Lirch arrived f said the visitor throwing j open bis coat. No, answered tho keeper of the hut, seltiug down the lamp, Young left him under cover on tbe other side of tho river, about five miles from the shore, and i do not expect him in un til midmght. And Fox where is he ? He left for Hunts last night thinking it more safe to be there, for the present, than to I remaiN here. Why, is there any thing out f Nothing that will affect yon. A pedlar had jbis throat cut a piec down tbo road, last week and it was said that 1 was seen on the bank of ' tho nver with a man who has been suspected or the dend, and who crossed tbe river on the ml bt of the day of tho murder. There was some talk of searching my bouse, but I put a bold front on the matter, and without letting on that I knew what was afoot, I gave voiun tarilv a close account of the man who hired my boat and advised that he should be pursued, a highway robbery and probable murder, per Thst oluffed them off. petrated on a drover, near Fdwardsville, in ill- Only for a time, said tbe stranger snappish inms. They bad knocked him on'the head with ly. Fox wbb right in not stopping, and I must leave with Birch as soon as he arrives. Our course wbb up the river, hut now we must strike in and ikulk again. Damnation your impru dence will not only ruin yourself, but will end in the destruction of every ooojwho nas any thing to do with you. Well, well, what have I done now, Capt. lohn. Wliv don't you do your work away from home ? J did no work I am clean of the affair. Am I child t No. neither am 1 a iiar. I have not been twenty years on the rross both east and west, to kill a man on my door step. Whose work was it ' Parrel's of Lee countv. He was through this way on a run from a horBO strike, and took tbe matter in band a be went along. He does not belong to our clan, and I had n right to call him to account a you know. You took good care I have no doubt to claim yourself in tbo game. It was my right, after he ha1, eompronvsed me by comim: here, and by axkin;.' my 1 - -ance. All I made out of H was thirty dollars-. Which trail did he make He crossed the river and took to ths tushes. I think it was his intention to work his wav in to the lower country. Curse him, I hopelie will stay there.

There was. however, a great desparitv in theii ages, the visitor being vet Io tho flower of oar- Iv manhood, while tl.e host was on the shadv side of prime Nevertheless there was in tbo expression of the vouugor man. that nhich betruyed a better lodired experience than resi ded in the elder, and read tbo history of kaOWl edso put to thrift, in a garden which had mnde no refuse. His eye. clear, placid and steady bad a gaze of weight, which when it met. an other, quietly bore it down, and re "civc d tho deference which inferiority has no p wer to relnso. In anger, it flashed with terror, and instead of respect, inspired fear and pain Fnder fair circumstances, a'id with good di rection might have been constructed into a no ble cansist or a splendid military nnirden r. but as it was. bis triumphs of reason only sub dued tho souls of ruffians and elevated him to i no higher rank than an adroit n bber and a desperate assassin. Hi- fato bad been against him. He was engendered in evil, of parents who themselves had lived in crime, and like a reptile begotten in a it. though it may ascend by a vile ambition to a wider prey upon tbe surface of the earth, must be a reptile still. His father, Owen Long, was a native of North Carolina, and bad pursued a career of vilhanv in the Atlantic State-1, which had been chequer ed by several terms ot felonious imprisonment and tinally bad fled to the West to oscapo a pursuit for murder. 1 1 is father's brother, Hi ram, had preceded him to the same quarter, for tho same reasons of safety, and both sat down in Owen countv. Indiana, within a few miles of each other to breed vilhans to repro duce their vices, owen Long produced two sons, .lohn and Aaron : and Hiram Long two sons named Hiram and karoa, and a daughter named Sally. All the sons of these two broth ers wero taagM to live by fraud and force, an 1 tbo daughter when she arrived at a suitable age, was given to a professional thief, named BhHBt Phipps. who was a partner and confed ei ato m all their atrocious schemes. TbH f I . il v had their immediate confeilorates, fonned a nucleus which bad its; ramilicatious throughout the States of Indiana and Illinois, and which bore a depcndoiicu iu a gl eat circle of viliians extended throughout the WobL In earlier times, an 1 before ttM boys whom w,; o ive named tiad grown up, and the two felon patriarchs bad been the satelites of Mur rill. i he renowned land pirate of the WPBt and vvueu the vast confederation of that arch leader fell, the fragment of his power shrunk into a minor circle in the tw states we have named. hon Long bail not tho gemus, or, perhaps, not the opportunity, hard upon the shock of the dismembormont which followed upon the fall of tbe great lender, to reorganize tho huge fraternity, and Hiram died shortly af ter the fall of the Chief, le.iucathing his share of the dark ambition to his sons. lohn. how ever, as he grew up and progressed in feloni ous enterprise, and felt the keys of the vast machine which had sounded regulated terror throughout an entire zone, conceived, bv de grees, the bold idea of reuniting them to a joint accord, and making himself tbe master of the music. As vet he had progressed but slightly to this end ; bis depredations had been desultory, but be bad ravaged over a wide field, aud in every quarter where he had pel formed an exploit or selected an associate, bl bad loft an impress ion, and secured a retainer. ' namo had be come popular, imperceptibly, among those lep erous Boctahqucs which were cognizant of bis doings, and he a- iu condition to receive that practical preeminent e, from circumstances, which has so often th suddon and unex pected reward of thoso who have been the themes of favorable gossip. Many a man Ins tints been made great in a dav, to his own sur prise, as well as to the wonderment of those, who. nntlunkinglv, have been tho niont active and m rearing tlie ladder of bis fame. As we now find him at old Hingemau's hut, at (Irafton. John Long was skulking with two of his associate!!, named Robert 11. P.irch and William Sutton, a'ias Fox, from the dangers of a bludgeon, and rifled his body on tu high road, and each, taking one of their vtcMm s horses, had separated on tbe spot, Bl rendez vous at Hingham's, preparatory to a journev nor'h, to perform an euterpiise near h'ockford, Illinois, which had been suggested to them some time previous, by a confederate in that quarter. Previous to the robbery of tb dro ver, the trio had been prospecting in Ohio and Tennessee for some three months, having been driven from their regular northern quarters in Illinois, by a robbery of horses near the Indi ana line. The owners of tbe animal' had tracked the thievos towards their rende.vous, and thev fonnd it to be good policv to leave their neighborhood, until such unpleasant wi tnesses should retire. Their scouts a. id psjr- ttcularly their agent, Sha k, the ; r"' of John Long, bad acquainted them b y infor mation sent to Cairo, that the coast as elear, and they were on a circuitous rerrrn. when tbey fell in with the drover near Aid u Iil-cois. After that affair. Rirch had taken a route to Grafton by tbe western shore of tbB Mnsis sippi. Pox returned in the dkfOCtkM I Mton. and followed t'.ie oast bank, while Long, with a view of calling on one of his agents bt the way. struck into tbe intanor, ahead of tbe drover's intended route, designing to m; I i tho rear of Grafton, and reach it I I ve I ave seen him, m the beginning of this Bboptor. In all this conceited movement, oi e rule WBB rigidly adhered to : they traveled n ' -while in the day time, they laid in ' iksts, awaiting the return of gloom to move forward unobserved. In this wav. thev kept hem- I selves entirelv from observation. ; ; u U hope of tracing their direction was as iil.s-o.utely los as if they had ISOSPflS I la thf air.
