What -1.H.1I wa-. to-bo-tu'-i! It happened that act father ?as a clergyman, backed by high ^n^-tto.18, a -1 h^'kiug forward to be a bishop before long. He bailed her out in no tiuit c tine down upon mo with acl.a.ge of conspira cy, and threats of transportation lor life?bediff ered myserv.ng-weu.il out of her wits tir.t himself, au 1 then set a hatchet-fxeed fell- w to eross-examuie her, who drove her clean be wildered?moi? loo 1 1 tor letting h;m do it; but I knew no betUr then. I B*w it would uevcr do to take tbe ca*e to trial with sueh a witness, and, by Jove, she saved me the trou b.e by bolting away before the day of trial came. I was obliged to w ithlraw the char e a:.d pretend that it was all a mistake. The clergyman talked of prosecuting me for con spiia.-y; but btt had some conscience and only talked; the girl, I had no doubt, confessed the theft to him. As it was, I got the reputation of a monster, and only recovered my charac ter by acknowledging that I must hare been urunk at the time and did uoi koow what I was about?I, who was never drunk in mv i life ! That affair est me fifty pounds in cash, and ; damaged niy oonnoetiou to the extent of at least two hundreds pounds more. I thould [ have been ruined, but tho parson got his bish opnek. and lett my neighborhood; I put & n. w | name on my eigu-board, and in time the event was forgotten. I ha l learned a valuable Ietu*on. The next lady-thief who favored me with a visit, did me the honorto rob me to the amount of two pounds-ten. tshe did it so clumsily that I could not avoid seeing her. 1 affected not to uotico it; smilingly took her order to t.ie amount of a few shilling?, and, when I m il home the goods, put the stolen article down ia the bill. She called next day, and With the utmost affability informed me of the mistake I had made in charging an article whi h I had not sent, and which she had not order ed. She brought her "companion" with her to prove that the article eharged was not in the packet of goods sent?which of course I knew well enough. I admitted "tho mistake" with perfect good humor, and she went awav. It will be acknowledged that I had learnCd my lesson well?but though I congratulateu myself on that score, I thought the teaching too expensive, aDd resolved to try a different pUn next time. I had n^t long to wait for an opportunity. Lady fc , the -.vife of a Baro net, took a fancy to some property of a rather rare description, and concealed it in the folds ? f her riceve. When she made her purchases. I remitted her, under the pretence that I had something remarkable to show her, to step into the parlor. Closing the door after her *?
