It la aad to lie down In the cold, cold grave. When the mind is strong, and the hoart la brave 1 It is sad to leave all that is lovely and fair And go to the tomb, to be mouldering there. But oh I if 'tis bitter to leave the world's throng, It ia aadder, far sadder, to livs too loug. To see all that once we had doted upon Before us to rest and to happiness gone, And to stand, like a wither'd oak, blighted and weak. The sole tree that survives the mad hurricane'! (wreck. 0 talk not of life, earth's bright dwellings among, For nothing can soothe him who Uvea too long. To know that the once echoing trumpet of Fame Shall never more mention that valnelees name ; To know that none cars for hia bliss or his doom 0 rather I'd ask the cold rest of the tomb. When glory has died , and the spirit of song Has vanl-hed, 'tis bitter to live too long. And I would lie down In my deep repose Ere my bosom no longer with poesy glows ; And I would arise to the mansions on high. Ere the thoughts that now live in my apirit shall (die; Ere the moments have fled, that to manhoood be long, And I feel that tie bitter to live too long. A Woman's Scheme. On the morning of the 17lh of Febru ary considerable excitement was created by the discovery of the dead body of a man flouting in Ihe Seine, at no great distance from the Pout Nuf. On its removal to the 3Iorgue for iden tification, it was concluded by the sur geons in charge tint it had been in the water for a period of not leas than four weeks, and that the perfect stale ip which it Whs found was attributed lo th coldness of the weather. An examination revealed a single nbrasion over the left temple, as though ruatit' by some heavy, bluut instrument. Otherwise, there were no marks of vio lence discovered. The uppuirel of the dead man, which was of a tine quality, indicated he was uol a Parisian, from the cast of his hand some and refined countenance, and the cut of his beard it was inferred be was an Italian gentlemanpossibly of noble blood. Beyond a small sum of money, and a single letter found in bis pockels, there was nothing which could lead to his identification. The letter was addressed to "Maurico Zanone, Tavistock Hotel, London," and was written by a banker in the city of Dublin, stating that the exuet amount of money to the credit of M. Zanone was the sum of 15,000 10s. 6d. It was dated on the 12iu of September, 1865, and signed "P. Goeff & Sons." After exposing the body for the usual time for indentification, and no one claiming it, it was buried at public ex pense, and in a few days was forgotten. The Prefect of Police placed .in my hands the letter found on his body, and desired me to investigate the matter. Aside from the letter, there was no clue that would enable me to unravel the mystery. His name, rank, station, and death were alike shrouded in profound obscurity. The letter, then, was my only chance of perpetrating it. I wrote to P. Goeff & Sons. In due season the answer came. It was brief. It merely slated that hi. Zanone, an Ital ian gentleman, bad been a depositor in their bank, but on the 29th of January, 18(30, according to their books, the bal ance was withdrawn by M. Zanone, and at his written direction from Paris, a draft on If. Godeau, of No. 20 Rue Ri- Toli, was forwarded to his address in Paris, Rne Rampart, Xo. 100, and that the draft had subsequently been cashed by M. Godeau. They knew nothing of their deposilor's subsequent history. I next called upon M. Godeau. He produced his books. The draft bad been paid on the 3d of February, 1866, and M. Zanone bad been properly iden tified. Then I called on (lie landlord of M. Zanone, in the Rue Rampart. H. Za none had given op his apartments on the 3d of February, 1866, stating that be was summoned suddenly away on im portant business. He bad engaged bis apartments on the morning of tlso 21st of January, and bad paid one month in advance. He vis reported as very re tired, saw bo company, and rarefy went out, his nca is being served from a neigh boring restaurant. Teiegram were seat to various cities In Italy, with particulars of tlte deceased but Bulbing could be obtained frucn thai quarter. There the chase stopped. If I pur. sued the object much further I was left uualdbd to grope la the dark. Had It not been for one fact I should have abandoned, In Ihe press of oilier business, the matter at once. That one fact, which told Die In the imperative voice of duty to bring every faculty Into piny, and solve Ihe fate of Zanone, was bis possession of the enorsnous sum of 15,000, What bas become of it f was the ques tion which occurred lo me a thousand times day. . There, as unmistakably as the letters of fire on the wall, was the clue, the only clue now left me. I must find what became of the money. Once more I reviewed the facta. Unfortunately the same hand had trac ed the letter from Paris. I had hoped to have found it a forgery. Again the light bad left me, and I was feebly groping in the dark. Then I called to my aid two experts in the art of penmanship. These letters were placed before them. Every characteristic of the earlier letters screed with the letter from Paris. The experts pronounced the chirography that of the same person. I was completely baffled. From Dublin, Zanone bad gone to Londoo. From London, therefore, he must have gone to Paris. Accordingly, I resolved to return to Paris by the way of London. Was ever a case shrouded in more complete and impenetrable mystery f Could I, with an experience of twenty years, discover the circumstances of the man's death f Again the voice of reason bade me to look for the 15,000. Find what became of the money, and I bad solved the prob lem. I was about retiring for the night, when s ray of ligUt broke through my jpluY K t i consulted my time-table. There was yet time. , In twenty minutes 1 was be ing whirled through the environs of Pa ris, on my way to Dublin. I would examine the letter which re quested Messrs. Goeff & Sons to forward the money to Paris. Two days later I was seated in the ban ker's office, with (he letter before me. Two other letters, written by Ihe deceas edone from Londonderry .another from Bel I ust, relative to trivial matters were also placed before me. The letters were written a few days after the deposit had been made. An Italian stranger arrives in Dublin, from whence is not known. He depos its a large sain of money with a reputa ble bunker. After a while he leaves Dublin, and is next heard of in London from whence he writes a letter of inquiry to his banker in Dublin, and speaks of shortly going to Paris, and iu due sea son is heard from in Paris, where be lodges in the Rue Rampart. At his written direction, his banker in Dublin reu'iis to him an enormous sum of moo ey. 0" the 3d of February, after proper identification, he receives the niouey from a prominent banker iu Paris ; the came day he leaves his apartment, say ing that he is suddenly summoned away without stating whence. Fourteen days afterward bis body is discovered floating in the Seine, with a few francs in his pocket and the marks of a blow over the left temple. Through channels known best to the profession, I traced my man to the Tav istock Hotel in Covent Garden. It was near the Haymarket the place where the nlght-slde of nature luxuriates the haunts of brazen women and bold, bad men ; where wild revelry and mad orgies rule the midnight hour; where treacher ous sirens weave their fatal webs ; where the wild red wine gurgles o'er the goblet; where eyes shine brightest, aad unholy passion rears its hydra head. I began to weaken in my work wben I discovered that Z tnone had plunged in to this vortex of dissipation. I don't know why, but I take a keener interest in my work wben it leads me into better scenes. However, a detective can't af ford to spend bis time moralizing. A few judicious inquiries put me in possession of the fact that Zanone bad become fascinated with a beautiful En glish girl not unknown to the police on account of her utter recklessness. Had I at last struck the trail of this labyrinth of vice which would lead to the solution of the mystery f Once snore the voice of reason whispered the an swer. The woman and the money were link ed inseperably together. Inch by inch I traced her with her victim. Slep by step I followed litem be to the destruction which was inevita ble, she to the consummation of this most bloody deed I They left Loudoa together. On the evening of January tOth, 18SS, they arrived in Paris. Subscription Before leaving the depot I examined my Doles. "On the 21t of January Za none, alone, bad engaged apartments in the Rue Racpart. His landlord said be seldom went out saw no company.'' I was dumbfounded. The woman, then.dropped from the drama Hint night. My theories and my conclusions, then, were falsa. I was bewildered. The mystery thickened. The mists of doubt and uncertainty arose about me, and left me Idly and hopelessly speculating upon the new phase that now presented lUelf. I had been confident tbut through the woman I would track the victim. I had felt that I was on the verge of discovery when lo I the woman disappears. I'll confess that I felt that I had got my match in Elise Cameron. I knew something of a woman's cunning. Therefore I deter mined to proceed to my apartments, dis miss the mutter from my miud for the night, sod enjoy a comfortable evening and a refreshing sleep before I proceed ed further. Chance led the my footsteps through Rue Rampart. I passed the door 0 f No. 100, where Zanone had lodged. Without exactly knowing why I entered and in quired for Monsieur Suborin, the laud lord. His wife answered: "Monsieur will be in directly." Madame v,as but thirty, her eyes were bright ; she was faultlessly formed ; her smile was sweet and very encouraging. I determined to chat with ber until mon sieur returned. I felt that I must make an excuse of some kind, so I inquired if she remembered M. Zanone, who had lodged with her. Madume blushed very red, and drop ped her eyes. Presently she said she did, and that monsieur was a very hand some young man "so quiet and so young." I perceived at once that she could not be speaking of Zanone, for he was at least forty years of age ; so I added that I referred to M. Zinone, the Italian gen tleman, who had departed so suddenly. Madame once more dropped her eyes as she returned : "I know M. Zanone; but yon are wrong he was a very young gentle man.'' Light at last ! before thernysof which the mists of doubt and uncertainty rolled siiently away. I groped no longer, child-like in the dark. I reeled like a drunken man its the truth broke upon me. Victory at last 1 It was as clear as the noon day sun. The voice of reason was right. The woman and the money were linked in seperably together. Cunning as ber plot was, deep as ber scheme was laid, subtle as was her devil ish work, carefully as the deiail was car ried out, the London courtesan was un masked, and I comprehended the whole tragedy. It was she, Elise Cameron, who had personated Manrico Z.inone, at No. 100 Rue Rampart ; it was she who had writ ten the letter directing the 15,000 to be forwarded to Paris ; it was she who had drawn the money from M. Godeau, in the Rue Rivoli. And once more the voice of reason cried aloud. It was she who had caused the death of the Italian. Tbey had ar rived together in Paris on the night of January 20th. On the 21st she bad as sumed the character of Zsnone, and en gaged the apartments in the Rue Ram part. Where, then, was Ztnone? Futile question. The unknown Italian, with crushed skull, was lying stark aad dead beneath the waters of the Seine, on tke morning of the 21st, when the London courtesan disappeared and emerged again in the character of tke murdered man. .That night Ihe London police were scouring London to find Elise Cameron ; before morning the telegraph informed me that after parting with Zanone she had not re-appeared in London. By noon next day I had tracked her.ia spite of her artful disguise, to Havre, and there I learned that on the eve of the (th of of February, 1866, she bad take passage in the Ville de Paris, still lo male attire, for New York, in company with s lover from London. Once there, she cast aside ber disguise, and emerged onee more as the fascinating womas. ' After months of patient labor, she was apprehended in Philadelphia, aad taken back to Paris to stand ber trial for mur der. As we erere unable to prove that she struck the bio which caused the death of Z tnone, she was convicted of forging the letter to the Dublin bankers, aad was sentenced to imprisonment for twenty-one years, the high est penalty for (he offense under the laws of France. Jit Leader, San Franeitm. Price, $1.00 A Year , A Trap for Brigands. HOW A BAND WAS WIPED OUT. The Vsrdarelll band, so called from their cbeif and bis brothers, had for more than two years committed great depredations In Apulia, In 8outbern Italy until, at length they were allowed to form a regular corps, etlll commanded by the same leader, who received a monthly salary, and engaged to secure the provinces which be had so long rav aged from all similar attacks In future. In 1818, the remains of this band pre sented themselves to the general com manding at Foggia, and had an alterca tion with blm. The general finally commanded the two leaders to repair to bis own apart ment to speak to them ; this they objected to do without their arnis.which they de clared they would never part from ; and it is supposed that the language tbey made use of iu the course of their argument so exasperated the officer, that he roughly pushed one of them back, who was using threatening gestures, on which the other fired bis musket at him, but having missed his murk, was shot dead on the spot by the Ben try at the gate ; this was the signal for an attack from his companions, that was immediately answered by a round of musketry from the troops who were drawn out close to them, which killed several, and spread consternation among the crowds of townspeople who bad as sembled on the spot. Four of the band who had presence of mind to spring up on their horses escaped in different di rections out of the town, though follow ed by cavalry, and fired at as they fled Another porliou were made prisoners ; but a third division sought security in a cellar, the first place of refuge which offered itself, and which, having one very low entrance, afforded (hem a de fensible asylum . for some time; the depth and darkness of this receptacle made it difficult to attack them with success, for they killed a soldier and wounded several others who ventured too near the aperture. Of this lust des perate set, four, however, gave them selves up, and made known the number that remained. In order to bring to as speedy a termination as possible, the dis may and agitation which this event has spread throughout the city, two of those who bad been last taken were sent into their companions with their hands tied to persuade them to surrender, aud to in form tlieui that it they persevered in a resistance which, from the local nature of ihe retreat must be unavailing, a straw fire would be lighted at the oridce as the only means of hastening their compliance or destruction. The unfortunate men never retailed, and no answer being given, this threat was put into actual execution, and the aperture blocked up w;th stones. Im agination pictures their sanation as most horrible; but its terrors were eluded by the last resource of despair. Two hours after the cellar was entered without op position, and their lifeless bodies covered with wounds indicated the death they had received at each other's hands. On Skates.
