I I 1 "Sl..
I It. a in tihe spiing of 183S. that I found
my .lIf g!idiiig upon the waters of the nmigjhty
Sli.ts's..ippi, and bound for New Orleans.
with ia ing!e exception, I had fi med not
travelling acquaintance on boa.rd the boat.
The individual witlh whom I. singularly
enough. fraternized, seemed, like myself.
to have little inclinat.bn to extetId I: e c
quautauce among thel pass:!nger. though he
seemed to be constantly upen the l'ukout for
some one, and frontm th close nIlaner in
which regarded the operations *,f two or
three or four of those individuals whose pro
fuse display of vest chains and jewelry. and
proficiency with cards at the tables in the
saooun. betrayed their professiin. I more
thlan uwce set him down as soame. ort if a
S.;.-" drtective in disguise.
tucky--so is ar au ga -e mle
in exchallge for mnie. Full six feet in height.
light, curly hair, muscular armns, and the I
chest of a Hercules, he clhalenged the ad- i
miration of more than one of his fellow:-pas
sengets. as with his serious, never-m:niling
face. he paced the promeinade deck. or sat,
apparently buried in thought. in the saltoon.
"'Do you ever play at cards, ,::id i to him I
us hIe l ft a group, that were .stutadinig at a
table of four players, and noting the li~ rss''
of the game. I had frequently s-een him I
invited. but he invarialtv, like myself. re- I
fused to participate in the game.
"Oth. yes." hei replied. "but where i+ the
use of playing here ? These fel'ows," nod
ding towards the players., can tell any card ;
in the pack by their backs. and they are -
trying hiird to pluck somle poor pigeo-in firom
among the piassengotrs, but as yet with indif- I
ferent success; beware of theimn, sir!"
To coniiince tre of the truth of whait lie
said, le called the steward of the Lo,;t anU
ordered a.fresh pack of cards, which were t
brought, and he handed the pack to mte.i
bidding me to shufile them. I did so. when
he immediately selected tnear!v iverv ace ]
anti king from the pack without liokinigt at
the tace of them. Next hel dealt thIle it,
two parcels, one to me, and the other tot hinm
self, when, upon examination, I founld that
all the cards of real value were in his hand. t
although I could deitect no uinfirnes:; as he a
dealt them.
*'You sec," said lihe, *"the advantage an
axpelt in these matters has over even a .skill
ful player.'
"I do. iudeed, ' I replied. .Ioni-hed it
my fell w travellera' dexterity, and lbegi
ning to think he might he a reformed gain- I
bier, or one "playing possum" for solie pur
pose or other; but as he .:id not urge or even
invite me to play. nor had played with any s
one else, and threw the cards asid,. :,ith an t
expre~siou of disgust too niaturial to be as
samed, I came to the cniclioio:l that lay 3
suspicious were ucIjust, and uiy travelling
a 'iatance was a riddle yet to be solved. I
teaist raiag theboat arrived r
kian. wotVeven se. ing him to bid hint adieu. c
The same evening, however, after visiting
the theatre. I was enjoing the cool air and i
a fragrant Havana in the rotunda of thie St. I
Chaie'IHotel, bnd coiversamig with a friend
from the North whom I had fortunately met,
when who shouHrl I eract.uuter but my steam- a
boat acquaintance.
After the usual greetings our conversautin chat
turned on our trip down the river, our pa- his 1
sengers, ete., when my fellow-traveler re- wait
marked that if I would like to visit the inte- tho
rior of a gambling house, or hell, a. it is thi'
soumetimes more appropriately called, he and
would be pleased to ahow it to as as one of car
the rights of the city. Never having wit- cou
nessed anything of'the kind, both I and my lyzi
friend assented, and after a short walk, we pua
; found ourselves within the precincts of one int
of those glittering and gorgoouly furnished '
Sestablisbments-vestibules to the internal ly i
| regions-where men are engaged in various in I
gaies of lnzt:rd. The interior of a gam- me
| bling house has been ton frequently described eat
to need repetition. The faro bank with its oa
crowd of visitors, the rouge et noir with its tar
t anxious circle, and groups of players at we
other games of which I was ignorant of the; pr
name, were all busily engaged as we en- !tir:
Sterdtl. Wedhad passed through two apart- n o
e ments. and reached a third in which were we
but four playcrsiplaying in pairs at differ- inl
*d ent tables. As we entered, we sat dower at
an unocoupied table for a moment, when, as co
w we dideo, we beard one of the two men an
nearest to us say to his opponent: ha
I "'That's the sat dollar, the luck is yours.
and I'm cleaned out."
S"'But you wear a good ring," said his nlp- e d
it ponent. -*See. I will back mty ring against
! yours on the next game. It's a ring I that er
Swon from a Kentucky boy that caue to New il
Or:eaas to see the sights," said he careles:- of
ly.
ea As the player, who was sitting with his
i partially toward us, mentioned Kentucky in
his conversation. I saw Thorn listen with at
-- eagerness. and as he twisted the ring whicll be
. he ofered to I at upon his Sager, the Ken- "I
Ktuaekian turned deadly pale. His eyes in
glowed like fire for an instant, then his b
countenance again assumed its calm and 01
placid look, and to our amazement, he rose,
and walking across the apart.•ment to tie
player who had just been left by his coin- hi
pr aon, and courteously proposed to try a p
.. and or two with hle it igr. able. and it et
we, his friendr, would excuse him for a 't
y short time. Of course.we assented--saodid .

- and in a few ninutes, three thousand dol

cards hehl by thie players, each of whom
seemed, from his bets, confident of success,
Ithough their countenances betrayed not the
least emotion. Thorn called. The gamrbhle
had three kings and an ace, whale Thorn
had three aces and a king. With his eyes
fixed steadily upon nlis opponent, he folded
up the money and crammue it into his
pocket.
. Fortune favors you," said the gambler
stoically, too well schooled to betray any
emotien or chagrin at the result. " ut
lhope to aomeet you again, sir. for I must have
|my revenge, after such a heavy run of luck
as this, and now I have no doubt your frieuds

not of a convivial or musical turn, though I
occasionally tell a good story. I have a
little history upon illy tongue's end that will
interest you, air."
It was long past midnight. Abeorbed in
the excitement of the game, we had scarce
ly noticed the flight of time, or that the ad
joining rooms were now nearly deserted by
their occupants., and that the other two
players at the otlher ,*id of the. apartment in
which we were, had finished their game and
been siec:ators of that between Thorn and
his opponent, and were now apparently in
terestedl listeners.
'About three years since," began Thorn.
S'a young man in Kentucky, a confidential
agent of a large business firm, was entrusted
with a largo sum of money, and comnmis
siont to itron-act SOto buiuness in New Or
leans; it was his first visit to the city; he
started happlily, I. aving behind him a young
wife and infant. Unfortunately, upon one
of the Mi-sissippi boats, or immediately up
on his arrival in New Orleans, ie fell in with
a 'profersis.oi i' atlan-m-an of play, I mean.
By the managemient of this professional, the
young mnan was enticed to a hIell,' induced
'o play, plied with wine, stripped of his
money-in short, to use a professional word.
,pluicked.' The young man was perfectly
sobered b, his ii s; lie returned to the ho
tel, stung with remorse, and half crazy
with excite'ment, he placed the pistol t.) his
lhead and blew his brains out, leaving a tar
idshled name as amn inmheritance for his wife
sa:d inn cent-l child."
'But :.hat is'all this to me !'" said the
gambler. now pale as ahes beneath the
flashing eye of the speaker. A.s it a moral
lesson viou are about to read here. or a ser
mno you have to preach !"
"What is it to you ?" said Thorn. his
voice quivering with excitement.. "*Ah! I'll
tell you what it is to you. This meetint off
you. and me to-night, which for three hlmg
years I have sought, is not mere chance.

on the bench and tlhought i,, :nole of it.
s The court adjourned. i.n,! II returned

s As soon as hle was qui.etry saeitl il his
parlor, he b thouglht hiimelf of his timepiei.ce;
and. turning to his wife, requested her t,,
send for it to their chamher.
'But, my dearjudge.' said sihe, 'I sent it
to you three hours ago!'
'Sent it to tme, nly dear? Certainly noit,'
'Unquestionably.' re'.,liad the ladv. "an.l

And 'Oth! by the tay. Senarita' said c,. ,
*his excellency the judge requesteed ime to e
ask you to give yourself the trouble to, go to
your chamber, and take his watch tfrolll
unlder the pillow, where Ine says lie lift it, a.

"'You did?" said'thel judge.
"Certainly," said the lady.
"Well." replied his honon. ''all that I cana
say to you, my dear is. that you are' as great '

been robbed madam; the man was a thief; I

Scarcely had they entered tihe sals and
exchanged the ordinary salulations. when
thelady broke forth with congrcatulations to

"How happy aill I," Pxclaimed she, ''that
the villain was apprehenlded!"
"'Apprelhended said the judge. with sur

He said he was juit co* freaa the court,
that he was one of the lebrks; that the great
villain who had the audacity to steal your
hmoor's watch had been arrested; that the!
eidenece was nearly perfect to cstlviet hill;
and all that was required to complete it was
the tarkey, which must be brought into
court, and for that he had been sent with a
porter by express orders."
"And you gave itto him?"
"Of course I did-who could~ciave d',ubted
him, or resisted the orders of a judge!"
"Watoh--and turkey-both goane! Pray,

But the lady had taken care of her guests,
notwithstanding her simplicity, and the
party enjoyed both the joke and theia viand. .
