SIR JOHH CHOKE'S PLOT.
BT MAttT KYLE DALLAS.
Even in thoso days it Is not in tho no
turo of things that n curato of tho
Church of England should bo a wealthy
man; and though young bachelor cu
rates are generally comlortnblo, and
much petted by tho ladles, who aro iond
of asking them to flvo o'clock tea and
croquet parties, a curato with a family
may havo so hard a ttrao of it that his
wile's ono silk gown may bo turned
thrico boforo it is given up; that ho will
havo a good deal of cold meat for his
dinners, and warnings from his wifo not
to open tho windows to lot tho sun shlno
on tho parlor carpet, when strangors
aro in that rtthcr shabby room.
When Parson Hawkins flourished,
and counted nino olivo branches at his
hearth, carpets wcro not necessary oven
to tho floor of English royalty, and lifo
was altogether simpler and loss cxpon
sivo for a curuto's family; but it cannot
bo denied, neveitholcss, nlno children
aro a heavy pull on tho patornal purso,
and right happy was Parson Hawkins
when Sir John Croko, of Cbilton, of
fered him tho curacy oi Chilton church,
and tho position of chaplain in his own
dwelling, with a salary of fifty pounds
a vear.
Tho first thing ho did was to kneel
down amidst his family and lead them
la tho thanksgiving for prosperity as set
down in tho book of common prayer
for such an occasion. Tho Bccond to
pack together all his movables and find
a wagon and wagoner to tnko tboin,
with his family to Chilton.
"I know not why Sir John Croko
hath chosen mo," ho said to tho partner
of his joys and sorrows, "but porhnps
ho may havo hoard my Easter sermon,
which, without vanity, I may consider
powerful."
Tho truth, however, was that tholato
chaplain had considered it his duty to
reprovo Sir John Croko for certain no
tions which wcro hi his opinion great
sins; and Sir John growing wrathful,
had discharged him and chosen in his
placo tho mildest and most inoUunsivo
person ho could hear of. Ho know of
his hardships, tho smallness of his sal
nry and tho sizo of his family, and ho
believed that this elderly man, anxious
to provide for his household, would not
daro to speak as tho enthusiastic young
curato, who felt himself sent upon a
mission and defied the world to turn him
irom it.
Ho wolcomcd his now chaplain very
pleasantly, therefore and gavo him con
aidorablo liberty in view of tho fact that
ho desired much for himself.
But Parson Hawkins was by no means
mado of tho stuff of whioh cowards arc
manufactured, and though ho withn as
and narrow-chested and by no means a
mighty man to look at, ho had a very
Hon of a conscience. Theroloro when
by degrees, ho discovered that his pa
tron was generally carried to bed inlox
icated, that ho nearly broke ins wllo'
heart, 'and refused to pay his honost
debts, ho first uttered grave privato ro
monstrances and then hurled at him
from tho pulpit such a thunderous ser
mon, lull of admonition, reprobation
and warning, that Sir John's faco bo
camo scarlet, and every mortal in tho
church knew to whom tho prcachor al
luded.
'Mark you, Parson," said Sir John
tho next timo ho was alono with this
man of words, "I forgivo you this once,
but tho n xt tiiiio you sopresumo, away
you go, brats and all, to starvo, il you
choose. What, do you think that I pay
a fellow to insult mo in my domain?"
"lspokofor tho suko of your own
soul, Sir John, and because I dared not
hold my own peace," replied tho cu
rato.
"Henceforth romombor who feeds
you," roplied Sir John.
Parson Huwklns did romombor
it,
For somo timo ho tried to bollevo thut
ho had turned Sir John from his evil
ways, that ho had dono his host, and
know no more to t'.o. Ho looked at his
wife, into whoso faded checks tho color
was last returning; at h's children
growing happy and bright in tho com
fort of their now life, and ho was
man, tiough ho was a parson.
At Bat, howover, lift found hlmsolf
so plalid that ho must speak or uo
villabO A sosmonCWus preached whioh
all Vull'duderstooS and at which many
wopt. And Sir John, furious witli rago,
sought a rovcQgo much creator than
tho simple dismissal of tho parson would
havo been.
In thoso days theft was a hanging
. mattor. A woman had recently boon
hung for stealing a loaf of bread. Olio
Jaws woro not only stern but cruol.
Fancy, then, tho horror of poor Par
son Hawkin's family whon it was known
that Sir John had mado a chargo
theft against him, in which it was sot
forth that on a certain day In Novonibor,
bo, the said Halbort Hawkins, being loft
alono in a room in the castlo, did unlaw
lully possess hlmsolf of "a golden gob
lot, a silver goblet, two guineas, and
piece of white hollands," to which faot
two sworn witnesses woro willing
Attest.
Tho parson himself, after tho first
shock, grow brave again, and doolared
that ho dolled his onomlos, and that
nono who know him would doubt his
honesty; but ho was forcod to go to jail
to await his trial, and with him wont
his faithful wifo, whllo thoir ono maid
servant cared for his children. Tho
trial camo on. Two soivants oi Sir
John's sworp to havo seen tho parson at
his work of pillago. Ono dcolarod that
ho had boon behind a curtain whon tho
goblets and tho guineas wcro taken
from a cupboard. Tho other vowed
that ho had been at tho head of tho
.it airs when ho had taken tho holland
from a press to wrap tho gold and
silvor in.
But others, not in Sir John's sorvlco,
had mot tho parson bearing no bundle
on tho samo day, and though, ns tho
presiding Justico declared, proof had
bocn brought sulQclont to hang twonty
men, tho position of tho dofondant and
tho bad charaotor ol Sir John's wit
nesses held his Judgement in check.
Ho did all ho could for poor Parson
Hawkins, but, alas, Sir John had bribed
witnesses nt his command, and tho
dreadful (ato oi tho gallows was hang
ing over tho poor man's hoad, kept
from falling instantly only by n demand
for tho production of the stolen goods
which, if tho accusation were truo.must
havo been hidden somowhoro.
Meanwhile Betty, tho sowing-woman,
had been to prison with somo iood lor
her master and mistress, and was re
turning, hall blinded by hor tears, when
she saw approaching hor on tho road n
servant of Sir John's, who was earnest
ly talking to Old Poggy, a beggar wo
man, who sought hor broad Irom door
to door, carrying a pouch at her side
and leaning on a thick stick, witli which
if occasion required, sho could ndminis
tor a good boating to either clogs or
impudent boys. Betty did notliko to
meet any ono in her then stato of mind
and simply for this reason she crept be
hind a big thorn bush, and thero crouch
ed down, intending to wait until they
should havo passed. Old Poggy hob
bled along slowly, and as sho noared
tho thorn bush sho paused.
"Tho parson never did mo harm,"
sho said.
But it's forty pounds in your pocket;
you'll bo a rich woman," said tho sor
vant.
How will Ibosuro ho'llpay mcP "
said tho woman.
'No foar. You'll havo tho money,
said tho servant. "I'd do itmyself, but
little Butty would never lot mo inside ol
tho houso. lou go in often. Ask to
warm yourself, nnd when she's not
looking, slip tho bundlo into somo snug
placo. Master will domand another
search, and" hero the noise of wheels
caused him to lowor his voico to a
whisper but Betty heard tho words
"at 8 to-night I'll bo out sido tho win
dow and pay you as you como out."
Poor Betty I this was somo tcrriblo
plot against hor master, and what
could sho, a poor girl, do to provent its
success? Suddenly a thought struck
her; sho turned her steps another way,
and ran toward tho houso oi tho good
justico, who was hor master's friend.
What happened thero wo will not tell
just yet.
At eight o'clock Betty sat in tho faml
lv room of tho parsonage; tho children
wcro aslcop in thoir beds, and sho wait
ed for Old Pocey's coming. A flro
burnt on tho hearth; tho tall press in
the corner frowned down upon tho girl
and her Idlo spinning-wheel; on tho
queer littlo three-legged stool which
tho children had lolt on tho hearth, and
on tho empty cheirs of master and miS'
tress, each bosldo tho ingle. An hour
glass was last running down on tho
table; by that tokon Betty know that it
was tho hour of eight.
Indeed tho last sand had just silted
through, and sho had revorscd it, when
tbo tap of a stick camo on the door, and
drawing tho bolt, Betty saw tho weath
or-beaten faco ol Peggy, tho beggar
woman.
"It's me, Botty dear," said tho old
woman; for God's sako let mo in to
warm my foot, nnd givo mo a sup of
warm ale, for I'm chilled to tho heart.'
Uotty said nothing; she let the crea
turo pass, and she seated horsoll in tho
parson's own grout chair, wWi hor
pouch still at hor sido; a bit of wbito
holland pcepod out of it; as sho saw it
sho covered it with tho end of hor dirty
cloak.
"Will yo fetch mo tho beorNietty

toward tho great press. As its di'lr

"Who is thoroP" cried Botty.
"Ofllcers of tho law to soarch this

Butty oponed tho door.
"Wo aro honest folks horo," sho said,
"Como in."
And two mon entorod, followed by
Sir John and his sorvant.
"Tho pross first," said tho ioromost
man.
And ho put his hand to tho door. As
ho did bo tho door flow opon, and out
stepped Justico Halo, holding by ho
arm tbo old boggar woman; at tho samo
instant, from tho floor abovo, heavy
footsteps wore heard dosconding tho
stain, and four armod men stood ready
tor their orders.
'Your vilo plot Is discovered, Sir
John," said Justice Halo. "Yon aro

Hawkins is provon an Innocent man

which sho was to havo hidden In this

Thon tho artnod men took into thoir
custody Sir John and his fellow, and oro
noxt ova tho gocd parson was with his

of his prosocution spread ovor tho land
and raised up frlonds who helped him
to such prosperity ns ho had never

Sir John was punished by certain
fines and imprisonment, and it is re

FOE'S DEFtNSE OF HIMSELF.
A Letter, Just Coinn to Light, In Which tho

In tho Baltimore American appears a
letter written by Edgar Allan Poo to
Dr. J. E. Snodgras, formorly editor of
tho Baltimore Saturday Visitor, in which
Poo defends himself Irom tho chargo of
intomporanco which has so long prevail
ed against him. Tho lottor wa3 found
by tho widow of Dr. Snodgrass a fow
davs aco, and was written when Poo
was on tho staff ol Grahams Magazine,
in Philadelphia. Tho Mr. Burton re
ferred to in tho lottcr was tho editor of
tho Gentleman's Magazine. Tho lottcr
is datod Philadelphia, April 1, 1841, and
is in roforenco to chargos of intcmpor
anco mado against Poo by Burton. Poo
writes to Dr. Snodgrass:
I havo to thank you lor your de.'onso
of myself. You aro a physician, and I
presume nophysiclan can havo difficulty
in detecting tho drunkard at a glance.
You are, moroover, n literary man,
well road in morals. You will novcrbo
brought to boliovo that I could wrlto
what I dally wrlto, as I writo it, wcro
1 as this villain would indueo tho3o who
know mo not to bollcvc. In line,
plcdgo you boforo God tho solemn word
ot a gentleman that I am tcmpcrato
oven to rigor. From tho hour In which
I first saw this basest ot calumniators
to tho hour in which I retired from his
ofllco in uncontrollablo disgust at his
chienncry, arroganco nnd brutality,
nolhlng stionger than water ovorpas'
sod my lips. It is, however, due to
candor that I inform you upon what
foundation ho bus erected his slanders
At no porlod of my life was I over what
mon call intemperate I novcr was iu
tho habit ot intoxication. 1 novor
drank drams, otc. But for a brief
period, whllo I resided In Richmond and
edited tho Messenger, I certainly did
givo way, at long intervals, to tho
temptation held out on all sides by tb
spirit of southern conviviality. My
sensitivo tomperament could not stand
on excitomont which was an every day
matter to my companions. In slurt. it
sometimes happened that I was com
pletely intoxicated. For somo days
alter oach excess I was invariably con
lined to bed. But it is now quito four
years sinco I liavo abandoned every
kind of alcoholic drink four years,
with tho exception of a singlo doviation,
which occurred f-hortly nftor my leaving
Burton, and whon I was induced to re
sort to tho occasional uso of cidor, with
tho hopo ot relieving a nervous attack.
You will thus sec, frankly stated, tho
wholo amount of my sin. You will also
seo tho blackness ol that heart which
could rovivo a slander of this nature
Noithor can you fail to porcoivo how
desporato tho malignity of tho slandoror
must bo how resoluto ho must bo to
slander and how slight tho grounds upon
whioh ho would build up a dofnmatioa
sinco ho can find nothing butter with
which to chargo mo than an accusation
which can bo disproved by oach nnd
every man with whom I am in habit of
daily intcrcourso. 1 havo now only to
ropoat to you, in general, my solonin
assnranco that ray habits aro as far
removed from intcmperanco as tho day
Irom tho night. My solo drink is

four physicians drew away tho lifo of a great
man who was Intended by naturo for an old

Tho speaker then graphically described an
other period which cime upon tho people. In
which they assigned the origin of all diseases
to the stomach, and after showing the falsity
of this theory, and that the ktdnejR and liver
were tho causo of disease, nnd that many

continued:
"Let us look at this matter n littlo more

It Is captblu of tho greatest results and it is

After describing at length tbo offices of the
