And when I en tered the courthouse, and found Gilbert and his wile already there, and noied the hopeful look with which the latter greeted my com ing, my heart sickeued at tho thought of tho hitter disitpjioiiit niont awaiting them. . "J he l'eoiilo versus Gilbert!" called out the Judge, after dispo sing hi some rorimu matters. A jury was immediately imnan neled, mid the case opened bv tho district attorney. Mr. Sleek was the first witness. The nervous, hesitating manner in which he gave his evidence would have greatly damaged its eflect had it not evidently nriseu from a dis position to do the prisoner as little hurt as possible. But no softening could break the terrible force of thefacts he wascoiupelled to relate. In His partners absence he had employed George Gilbert as clerk : bad found bim competent and trustworthy ; had sent him ou a trip to make collections: on his re turn he had acknowledged that, after receiving a considerable sum, he was induced by a respectable ABOUT QUARANTINE. SOMK OF THE DISADVANTAGES OF THE SAME-LETTER FROM AN OLO SEA CAPTAIN. Pascaooi la, Nov. 15, 1879. Editor Democrat Star: Sir The people of East Pasca goula are crying out against hard times. No vessels in port to em ploy men to lead them, etc., etc. Will yon kindly give me space in your columns to say a word in regard to the cause ot these hari times! Vessels will not come here to load, or to any Southern port, while the rigid quarantine rules exist, such as have ruined the prosperity of your port and others the past year. With your pel mission I will state my own experience this last voyage, and any one can see at a glance that no vessel will come here while she runs the risk ot being detained at quarantine until she has eaten iil her whole freight. I arrived in l'ensacola last mouth trom Hio de Janeiro. Had been nine mouths ou thd voyage, and had not had a case of sickness on board an hour, or heard ot any contagious disease in any port I visited. I broiishta clean bill of health to l'ensacola, but was quarantined for sis days and obliged to discharge my ballast with my crew; for which privilege 1 paid $7o, besides other charges amounting to 10!Mn all.

I gave what poor consonlation I could, tor lawyers, like doctors. must keep their patients' courage np at times. "In the urst lilace, I'll see Mangle & Meek," I said. "Mr, Maude may be brought to hear reason alter all it he can be only made to see bis luterest iu it." Tbe pale aud despoudeut face cheered up a little. My words seemed to hare inspired a sort of nudedued boie, which I was far from feeling myself. Mr. Maugle received me with stony politeness. " Vouuff man," his manner said "Dou't waste time iu appeals to sentimeut ; you wou't it you'll just look at me." I took the hint, and came at ouce to busiuess: repeated Gilbert's of fer, aim put it as strongly as iwssi ble that more was to bo gained by leniency thau harshness, all of which Mr. Maugln listened to with a conscientious scowl. "1 cannot be a party to com pounding a felony," he answered, witu a solemn intouatioo. " Nor have I asked you," I re plied, a little nettled. "I have merely mentioned a plan of paying back your own, leaving it to your own generosity and good judgment to press or not press the prosecu tion." "O, it's all tbe same," waa tbe contemptuous rejoinder; " any body but a lawyer, witb bis Heart tall of quibs aud quibbles, could see that. Besides, there's some-thins- rather cool in tbe proposal to I retain your lriend iu our employ, ' ..H.AnnA stf nrlrin. nitf till. looking gentleman, witb whom he ' leased trom quarantine ; lost my uau casually tailed in, to loin in a social game of cards.

Mr. Meek's voice faltered as he closed his narrative. He was so it g to volunteer something about the prisoner s previous good char acter, when a disapproving glance trom Mr. Mangle brought him to a ualt.

A buzz of surprise greeted the announcement, in the midst of which Mr. Mangle stepped forward and was sworn. "ou have beeu absent for the past year, Mr. Mangle!" 1 began. " 1 have." " Traveling iu different pai ls!" " Yes, sir," "The prisoner was employed by your partner in your absence, and was arrested about the time of your return T" "Such was the case." " Have you ever seen him !" "Not to my knowledge." "Or met him in your travels !" " If he will turn his face this way 1 can tell better." At my bidding Gilbert turned aud faced the witness. The effect was electrical. Mr. Mangle turned palo aud red by turus. " One otherquestion, Mr. Mangle.

The man of irou virtue hesitated worse than his amiable partner had done. He was halting between a point-blank lie, which might entail the penalties of perjury, and the trutb,wbicb would cost bim money. Cowardice performed the office of conscience aud the truth came out. The firm's money, which Ueo. Gilbert had lost, had been won by tbe senior partner; and the court instructed the jury that inasmuch as tbe sum iu questiou bad actually been delivered to onu ot the joint owners, who was oounu to mare account to his associate, the pris- oner could not be convicted.

No doubt a strict quar antine is necessary against vessels coining from intected ports, and my master of one who would try to pass his vessel in a port with yellow lever on board should be hanged. Still it is unjust and un reasonable to put a vessel to such niiovauce and expense as the ibove when it can be proved she has no sickness on board, and lias had none tor many months. It smells too much (particularly ot 1'eusi cola) like the Tainmauy ring, Itanium's wooly horse, or the Cardiff giant. Every vessel com ing here puts bread into the mouths of the laboring classes, find your quarantine ofiicials, bv using a lit tle discretion, can easily tell which vessels are dangerous and which are sale. As the matter stands now there will be the same rules next year, lour mills will have to shut down ; your stevedores will drag out a miserable existence, their wives aud children want bread, and all because vessels upon which they rely tor support are driven from your waters for what! Perhaps the board of health can answer. I lie Hatches ot in v vessel were kept oft from the 23d day ot June until I reached Pensa- cola a ieriod of nearly four months, then put on in order to fumiyate the vtmnel and drive out the foul air. The same process was gone through with here. 1 cauuot understand why the people ot Pascagoula are so bliud to their own interests as to tamely submit to have the bread taken from their mouths in this manner. Tbe money appropriated to build a quarantine station on Kouuu island would uo doubt cut out a channel through your bar at Horn island pass, which would result in great benefit. Will any benefit be de rived from such quarantine station when completed, except to those who have the job ! 1 have left $1300 here, and shall never come agaiu while a quarantine exists. In conclusion I beg to state that I was treated both here and in l'ensacola in a gentlemanly niau uer by the quarantine officials. Tilden Hall, Master of American Bark Brunswick. Nkw Ohi.ea.V8, Nov. 19, 1879. Editor Democrat-Star : I am delighted to notice that the .effect of my letter has been, like patting a coal on the back of a ter rapin, to make our old friend, "Snap Ueans," ciawl out of his shell. He has beeu too long "hiding his light under a bushel." He is too fond of tbe dolce nknti, and laps himself in Elysiun . dreams, when he should spread his canvass and dash oil over the crested bil lows willi a spanking breeze. If "there is life in the old land vet," so there is enough energy and vim iu the old veteran of democracy if he sees tit to put it in motion. "bnap Means" makes a pathetic illusion to our old comrades, who have "crossed over the river to rest in the shade," as Stonewall Jackson said iu his delirium. lint when he says they " handed iu tneir ierriago money," he makes a slight mistake. They, and all their coteiniioraries, including Snap and mysell, lived at a tune when it was not the custom to plank down the cash. We all went upon tic. Plan tations and negroes were sold on credit, aud no one dreamed of pay ineiic in nand. ihe saloon man bought his liquors ou time, aud sold his drinks on. credit. No gentle man required money. " His w ord was as good as his bond " and ot ten one was no better than tlieotber. Not one of the persons referred to forked over when they crossed fiiif ferry. They told the ferryman to chalk it down, and he has doubtless followed them to the "other sid ot Jordan" with, the bill iu his hands. "Snap I!e;:iis" reminds me that 1 omitted the name of Col. llios. Ives. He was a very remarkable man. When I first saw bim iu Carroll county, he told me he had come from North Carolina to Mis sissippi to die, and he was apparent ly dying with consumption.
