In 1848 a eirontatance oeenrred
in the city of New Orleans, which, M
at the time, eremted an excitement bh
which affected the entire popul if
tion. An old merchant, highly con .
neted, wealthy and of distinguish.

He left his store at late boor, sate. It
sihly to go home; but before going, d
contrary to hi usual practlice, he .v
took a large sum of money. His di
way led along Peters street, on the tl
hans of the river, far down into the 51
Third District of the city. His U
life may have been serioeed, and al
his body thrown into the river that e'
rolled at his feet. Police rewlsl. h
tions at this time were bad, and tl
crimes of tbis description were not II
nnfreqnently perpetrated. A little a
way back from the street was s
ruinous bnilding, halt tombling to 1
decay, and inhabited by thieves. a
Among the notes Mr. Conlay was
known to posses was one for $500
with the word "Canal" written on

It was, therefore, with many a
