Now, Thompson's wife lived, along with a little daughter, at Chelsea Knowing that Thompson ?u somewhere in the country, I watched the house?especially at poet time in the morning?thinking that Thompson was likely te write to her. Sure enough, one morning the postman comes up, and delivers a letter at Mrs Thompson's door. Little girl opens the door and takes it in We're not always sure of postmen, though the pe<>ple at the post-offices are always very ob liging. A postman may help us, or he may not?just as it happens However, I go acroes the road, and I say to the poctman, after he has left the letter, 4<iood morning ! how are y<>u '' 4 liow are you V says he ' You've just delivered a letter lor Mrs. Thompson?' 1 Yes, I have 4 You didn't happen to re mark what the post-maik was. perhaps ' *No,' ?ajs he, 11 didn't ' 4 Come,' says i, 4 I'll be plain with you. I'm in a small way of busi uess, and 1 have given Thompson credit, cad I can't afford to Tose what he owes me. I know he's got money, and I know he's in the ? country, and if you could tell me what the potft-mark was, 1 should be very much obliged to you, and you'd do a service to a tradesman ' iu a small way of business that can't afford a lo-ifl ' 4 Weil,' he said, 4 I do assure you that , [ did not observe what the post-mirk was; all L know is, that tbere was money in the letter ?

This was enough ( "or mr, because of course I knew that Thoinj>- i : Hni having sent his wife money, it was prob- I , lble she'd write to Thompson by return of i ( ?Obt to acknowledge the receipt. So I said , Thankee' to the postman, and I kept on the j , watch In the afternoon I saw the little girl ' < !< me out.

When le came out, 1 told him, 4( Now, I'm an officer u the Detective Force ; there's a letter with a ties been pested here ju3t now, for a man I'm n search of; and what I have to ask of you .4. that you will let me look at the direction >f that letter " He was very civil?took a lot >f letters from the box in the window?shook cm out on the counter with the faces down wards?and there among 'em was the identical etter with the kiss. It was directed, "Mr Thomas Pigeon, l'ost Office, B , to be left .ill called for." Down I went to B (a hundred and twenty miles or so) that night. tarly next morning I went to the post office ; law the gentleman in charge of that depart ment; told him who I was, and that my ob ject was to see and track the party tbat should some for the letter tor Mr. Thomas Pigeon, lie was very polite, and said, *' You shall have every assistance we can give you ; you can wail inside the office; and we'll take care to let you know when anybody comes for the letter." Well, I waited there three days, and began to thing nobody ever would come At last the clerk whispered to me, ? Here ! L>e teetive! Somebody's come for the letter!" 14 Keep him a minute," said 1. and I ran round to the outside of the office There 1 saw a young chap with th? appearance of au ostler, holdiug a horse by the bridle, stretch ing the bridle across the pavement while ho waited attho post office window for the letter. 1 began to pa', the hoise, and that; and said lo the boy, 44 Why, this is Mr. Jones' mare !" 14 No, it ant." 4-No?

I got a cab, followed on the box au-1 wa< *<> ^uick alter him, that I came into the st ible )ard ol tbe Warwick Arms byouegate just as Lo came in by another. I went iuto the bar where there was a young woman serving, and called for a glass of brandy and water. He came in directly, aud handed her the letter, hho casually looked at it without Saying any thing, and stuck it up behind the glass over the chimney piece. What was to be done ; next ? 441 turned it over in my mind while I drank my brandy and water, (looking pretty sharp at the letter all the while.) but I couldn't see my way out of it at all. 1 tried to get lodging in the house, but there had been a horse-fair or fccciething of that sort, and it was full. I was ^.bligod to put up somewhere else, but I came backwards aud forwards to the bar for a couple cf and there was the letter al ways behind the glass At last I thought I'd write a letter to Mr Pigeon myself, and see what that would do. So 1 wrote one. and posted it, but I purposely addressed it, Mr. John Pigeon, instead of Mr. Thu-nas Pigeon, to see what that would do in the morning i a very wet morning it was; I watched the postman down the street, and cut into the bar just before he reached the Warwick Arm.'. In he c*me presently with my letter. ' It there a Mr John Pigeon staying here > 4 No! stop a bit though,' says the barmaid ; and she took down the letter behind the glass 4 No.' says she, 4 it's Thomas, and As is not staying here Would you do me a favor, and post this for me, as it is so wet" Tbe postman said >es; she folded it in :inother envelop, and directed it, and gave it him. He put it in his hat and away he went. 441 had no difficulty in find.ngoutthe direc tion of that letter It was addressed, 'Mr. Thomas Pigeon, Post Office R , Northamp tonshire, to be left until oalled for ' Off I started directly for R I the same at t\k% post office there as 1 had aaid at B , and again I waited three days before any body camo. 4 Any letters for Thomas Pigeon V ?

I made my inquiries about the Isew ion, near R , ?ud bearing it was a solitary sort of house, a little in the horse line, about a couple of miles from tbe station, I thought I d go ai.d have a look at it. I found it what it had been described, and sauntered in to look about me.
