THE SPIRIT OF DEMOCRACY.
Tuesday, Angunt 11, 1877. The Scourge ( the Highway. Ia the year 1771 a man oaiued Joseph Richelol was broken alive on the. wheel, at Orleans, for highway robbery; and as there were no relatives or friends to claim the body, the executioner, when he thought life was extinct, gave it to a surgeon, who carried it to the anatom ical academy for dissection. The legs and arms of the wretch had been fear fully broken and mangled, but yet, when the surgeon .applied, his knife, he detect ed signs oHife, and by the application of powerful excitants and stimulating cordials, the highwiyman was brought to his senses, and to the power of speech The surgeon ana ms p'ipiis were Kind, hearted, and deeply moved by the suff erings: and the earnest solicitations-of the culprit, they resoivea to attempt nis cure. They would thus lose the sul jct for dissection, but toe experience oi nana ling such a case ia treatment would be valuable. So dreadfully mangled was ItA tlia lhan tasw t n omnntofA Vvt4 W Va ' leg3 at th.e hip joints, and take off his left arm at the shoulder. His right arm had been fractured above and below the elbow, but the bones had not been shiver ed, and with extreme care that important limb' bad been saved. Notwithstanding the mutilation a mutilation - and blood loss that would be surely fatal in tine hundred and ninety nine cases in a thou sandthe man recovered. A man with cot even the stump of a leg, and with only one arm ! He begged that he might be taken further from Paris, where be could gain a livelihood by begging They might be sure he would henceforth lead aa honest 1ffr He swore be wonld rather die than steal again. .The good doctor, willing to do anything in his power, put Bichelot into a cart, and sent two 'of his students t6 convey him Bay league away to the west, .beyond Poi tiers. . ' :, . ' " The man was full forty leagues away from the nearest place where he hat ever been known He took a situation by (he roadside, close by a ragged . cliff of rock, and a cense wood, wnere n;s deplorable condition excited the com passion of all who . saw him. In his . youth he had served ia the army, and clad in an old. bozzar's jacket and helmet, he passed for a soldier who had lost bis limbs in battle. Time passed. By-and-by a peddler, who had set out from Lu- signan on bis way to Yitray, with a full i i. . i j patCS na,Biacu uiuucy, wao uiisseu. ? Other men mysteriously disappeared in that same section. - The police sear ched for the robbers, but could not find themiVnd yet they; .were well assured that these oft-recurring disappearances were not the result of accident . There must .beslobbers and assassins some-'where..- ' ' . ' .-.: : The celebrated Jean Coquelle, with a platoon of his well-trained detective forced came down from Paris, and spent two months in the provinces, but railed to nnearth the mystery. .ffnOne day a drover, returning ; from market, where he had been selling c at tie, came upon the poor, legless beg ga by the wayside, and was . solicited . ; io cbarify. .- - ' Vf J. " Beirig moved to compassion by the eight of. so much disfigurement for the wretched man seemed to be both legless and armless the drover threw him a piece of tflver.

' with the drover for a guide, to the place where the murder was attempted . Not more than" an hour tia.l elapsed since the drover had left with prisoner when the spot. was reached, the distance from the village being not quite a league. . . Thp'i,i fnrnei .concealed themsel- vs irt the1. boshes, after which, the whis tle was blown, the sound being ' exceed ingly ahrpi ?lear and penetrating; and directly an answering whistle was heard, seeming to come from under ground ; nor was this all ; hardly had the note ol the whistle died away, w,hen three men arose to, sight from a thick tangle ol shrubs and vines cL ise at hand. '-' -. ; The soldiers, with muskets cocked '" and presented,, advanced, and -'ordered the men- to surrender. One of them turned to lee, and was immediately shot down,' upon which the other two, seeing that they were fairly caught, threw down their arms. Wnen'they Jhad been se - mmH th nlARA where 'thev had aooear- - ed wai searched, and entrance found to " a deejp; spacious cave, wherein were dis covered two women, ana a boy and girl The women fcsrve in evidence that thev 'had been originally seized by the rob bers, n J carried away from their homes that they Jiad been forcibly-wld cap. tiveaand uart Qnall married, with their abducjTrlTf'Tbe boy and -gUl were their etiildiruTjiesii V LbrfghW inieJU&ent iols8:;or;teu; or, twelve; years, viestifled that dead bodies '.f : traveler i'ewly killed were often 'blfodglrt into thd cave, and atripped anTTWrfed. .
