THE SHAD-OW OF A HAN D. [Froru the Baltimore Stftbefrop* J It is a question that has often been debate'1 whether inan or woman po^esses moot moral courage. I shall not preten?l to enter into a discussion of the matter hero, but simply fo late an incident which came to my knowledge Some years since, proving. I think, inconte-?ti bly. th at some of tne fairer portion of creation are endowed in an eminent degree with this virtue. In the autumn of 1946 circumstances called me to Dicppo To tell the truth. I was by no means sorry to visit this fashionable watering place. The change U a very agreeable one after a long sojourn in Paris. It waa late in the evoning of the 14th of August when I ar rived at the end of iuv journey, I proceeded at once to the Hotel dea bains, (which, by the bye. I can re<*<?ruinend to those of my readers who may happen to visit Dieppe.) and alter a light supper retired to rest. t have always been an early riser. It makes no difference what time I go to bed at night. 1 am sure to get up early in tho morning. I sup pose this is habit more than anything else. However that may be, the morning after my arrival at Dieppe I was up by Oock-crow I looked at my watch, and found it wanted a few minutes to four, I determined I would go and explore the town. When I arrived in the street I wad very much surprised to find it full of poople. I gave the inhabitant* of Dieppe credit for being very in dustrious. beating their Parisian brethren to nothing, in the exercise of the virtue of early rising, and expected to discover upon inquiry, I a practical illustration of the truth or the adage, by finding the citiiens of that prettv, but rather slow town, noted for their health, renowned for the woalth. and courted for their wisdom. I was disturbed froui these reflections by ob serving that the people were all filing in one direction, and they hurried forward as if stim ulated by some extraordinary curiositv. I ad dressed inquiries to some of them, "but they were too breathless, and in too great a hurry to make any reply to me. All they did was to poiut before them and nod their heads. Not being able to obtain any satisfaction from them. 1 determined to follow their foot steps, as I was now convinced there must bo something to be seen. We advanced at a verv quick pace down a handsome street, which f afterwards learned was the chief street in the street in the town, ealled the Grande Rue; the crowd becoming more dense, so as to render it very difficult to proceed >Ve might have gone a mile, perhaps, when the street suddenly opened into a large square ; this square was densely packed with a great mob. Ihe most distracting noise and eoufusion prevailed. Wut I saw something there, raised on a platform at the further end of the square, which engaged my whole attention, and made my blood feci a* if it were turned into ice. It was a guillotine ! Yes. thore was the hideons frame work painted black, which I h id socn once before at the Place du Trone in Paris. At the mouieut I turned my eyes on this instrument of death, a man was engaged oiling the groves, and to en able him to do it more conveniently, the knit'e lowered half way down between tho two posts, and the morning sun made th# blade glitter, rendering it quite distinct to the whole multi tude. Although I had before seen an execution, and w<%a well aware of the painful effect it had upon my mind for mouths afterwards, morbid curi osity impelled me to remain, and see the con clusion of the tragedy. I had not to wait loni. a neighboring bell b?g ui to toil and a cart made its appearance bearing tho criminal He ap peared to take matlters very easily, and when 1 first saw him. be was conversing gaily with the two gendarmes who accompanied him. He was smoking a cigar, and glanced around at the multituie with tho most perfect Jioncha- 1 luHt*. The populanee when they saw him raised a yell of execration; a palpable sneer was the only reply ho deigned to make. Ho ascended the steps leading to the scaffold with an easy gait, and turning sharply round to the mob. stood for a minute or two with his arms folded, and a foot advanced a* if defying them He glanced at them a look of unuttera ble scorn, and muttered between his teeth the word " Canaille-" ? It was during this minute or two that I had j time to make a note of his appearance. He seemed to be about thirty-five yean trf age He was tall and powerfully built, but his fea tures were the very epitome of villanv. His eyes were dark and large, surmounted by bushy eyebrow*. He wore a long moustache wWob extended far beyond his cheeks. Every bad passion seemed to be expressed in his face; in fact is countenance might be called perfectly devilish. An involuntary shudder ran through me as I gased upon it. He resTguod himself into the hand* of the ex ecutioner. aud in a few minutes all was over Whon the time came for tho knife t? descend. I had not the courage to look, but turned my , head away, and it was only by a shout from the mob that I knew the tragedy was finished. I inquired of a spectator near me, the name of the criminal and the crime for which he bad suffered The man started at mc with astonishment, saying. '? \\ hy, it's Jacques Roynauld The name struck me as being somewhat familiar, and I endeavored to remember where I had heard it before. I suddenly recollected the Paris newspapers some months back had l>een filled with the hi.-tory of several awful murders committed in Dieppe, and this inan s name was in some way connected with them, but in what manner I could not remember. However my curiosity was uow thoroughly ex cited. I immediately made the rnewt miuute en quiries into the matter, and before I left Dieppe had learned the following particular In the Hue des Artnes, about four months previous to the time I write, lived a worthy haberdasher of the name of Maurice. His fam ily consisted of himself, his wife, one child, and a servant. They were quiet, respectable peo Ele and very much respected by all their neigh* )ri. U Maurice did^a good business and frequent ly had a considerable sum of money in his house He had an extraordinary run of custom one Saturday, and when the labors of the d*y were over he felt v?*ry much fatigued. He shut up bis shop and proceeded toe small room, where his wife and servant were laying the cloth for supper. " My dear," said his wife, as s??>n as he en teral tho room. '? I should v?ry much like some oysters for supper to-night '* " 1 am afraid it is too late," replied the hus band biokiug at his wat h. It was a quarter past eleven " Uh no. J ustinn says there is a shop open round the corner.' " If that bo the ca3e let Justine get some at once for I am as hungry use hunter." Thereupon Justine put on her bonnet and ?hjwl. and went for the oysters; lejvutg the d,ur ajar, that she might not disturb her mas ter or mistress when *he returned Now a so happened that the place where eho expected to be ablo to obtain the oysters was cl<*ed but not wishing to disappoint her em ployers sht? determined she would go and seek them elsewhere In pursuanoe of this object, she entered tho liraaie Rue, but had to walk a considerable distauce before she could obtaiu what she sought She hurried home aglin, aud noticed when she arrived at the door 01 her ma?ter s bouse that the chimes of a neighbor ing church struck a quarter to twelve She had, therefore, beon absent just three quarters of au hour She was surprised to find the door shut, but supposing that the wind had blown it to, she raised the latch. The door was fastentl on the inside. She thought this rather strange, but thm again she reflected that it was doubtless only a necessary precaution on the part of her muter She rang the bell, and was very much V teemed when, after waiting a few minutes. no reply w? made. <?

Vn I ea*i,y imafc'ino'l ?linn described, and to tell the truth I dont like dealing in the Horn Me; it is pandering to a morbid taste. and u I have transgressed iny usual mode of narra tion in this sketch, my only excuse is?it is The most strenuous efforts were made to de Vm* u10 ulun'eror? but without any success. All that could bo learned was. that a man had beon seen to look intently in the shop windows about the time M. Maurice was counting out his day's receipts. The whole town of Dieppe waj horrified, and when night came many a heart trembled. After a few da\s tho foiling of fear began to decrease, when they were again awakened in a ten-fold manner by another shocking murder. About ton days after the catastrophe in the Hue des Arm69, poqib belated pedestrian!* were making the best of their way homo about 2 o clock in the morning They were walkin" vory rapidly down tho Rue Grenard, when they were astonished by seeing a man on the roof of the house. with nothing on but his shirt, crying out with all his strength ' murder"' "?T?r.def;" "murder:" He held a young child in his arms. They immediately called to him. but all thev could gather irom him was that murder was being committed in the hou.?o. They directly made for the door, and found it fastenM on the tKstae. Thev burst the door open with a few rigorous kicks and penetrated into the house. They rushed up stairs, and on the first landing they tound the body of a man with his throat cut. He was dead. They entered a bed-room? hanging half out of bed was tho body of a wo man. mutilated in the same horrible manner, and stone dead. But they had not vet discov ered all the horrors of that house of blood. In ! the kitchen was discovered the inanimate form of the servant girl, who had been killed by the I same means. The assassin was evidently the same who committed the murder in tho Hue dos Amies. The wounds inflicted were exactly of the same character, and it wus evident the same instrument had been used. The young man seen on the roof of the house was named 1'ierre Dulon; ho deposed before the rrocurcur du Roi. the next morning, as fol low* : ? My name is Pierre Dulon ; I am twenty-two years of age. and a watch-maker by trade' For the last two years I have been living as assist ant with the late Mousiuer Mouton. He re sided in Rue Grenard. His family consisted of himself, wife, child and servant girl. On the night of the 21st of April. 1S46, we all of us re tired to bed early. I was accustomed to sleep in one of the attics. In the room next to mine the servant girl and child slept. About half past 1 o clock in the morning I awoke. I felt thirsty and rose to got some water?my pitcher was empty. I went down stairs to fill it. I hatl nearly reached the first landing, when I saw a man stealthily ascending the stairs. 1 am a very nervous man. and tho recent murder had preyed very much on my mind. I had been liv ing in continual dread ever since. The sight of this man completely paralysed me; and I stood looking, not able to move hand or foot. He had nearly reached master's d<?or, when M. Mouton opened the door and came out on the landing. The assassin immediately rushwd upon him, and putting his hand over my mas ter s mouth, prevented him from from calling out. I noticed but one thing, that the mur I derer had only three fingers on his left hand. I could see more, but rau up stairs again, and hurried into the servant s room : the child was lying on the bod asleep, but the sorvant girl was not in the room. I took up tho child in my arms and got out on the roof. This is all I know about the matter." The excitement in Dieppe was now raised to the highest pitch No trace of tho assassin could bo discovered. It was evident that these murders were the work of one man?and that he must have been concealed in the houses be fore they wore closed for the night. Govern ment offered a large reward for the discovery of the murderer, and the vigilancc of the police was thoroughly aroused. There lived on the outskirts of Dioppo a widow lady ot the name of Reaumaurice. She had no family ; but, with one servant girl, lived in a very retired manner. Tho cottage in which she resided was situated about half a mile from the city?a little off from the public road. 1 Madame Reaumaurice had been tho wife of an old officer of the Guards. Jibe was an extraor dinary woman in every particular; but espe cially so in respect to a certain coolnoss of character she possessed, in the midst of danger, ?which, together with a large amount of moral courage made her a very notable person. The receut murders bad, perhaps, made less im pression on hor mind than upon anyone else in Dieppe ?although it was naturally supposed the retired situation in which she lived would have caused her to be more fearful. About ten o'clock on the night of the 30th or Apfll, just ten days alter the murders in tho Rue Grenard. Mad.tine Reaumaurice went up to her bed-room. .She was sutiering from a nervous headache. Sho felt very sleepy, und seated herself in a large arm-chair previous to undressing herself, 'ihe lamp was placed on a ch?at of drawers behind her. Opposite to hi r was a toilet-table, with a cloth on it roachinc tw we ground. She had already commenc* d taking ?fl her oluthes. when hapj>ening to look around her. ahe saw something which for a in. - ment chillcd her blood It was the shadow of a man s hand on tho floor. The hand had ihi/u thru finger*y She divined the truth in a momont?tho ?MMNa wa* there, in her house?under that toilet-table. She made not tho least motion or sign, but reflected two or throe minutes as to the best Muurse to be pursued. She made up hor mind what to do, and ad vancing to tho door, called her servant maid " Oh Mary ! exclaimed she. when the girl entered the room " Do you know where Mon sieur Bernard lives ?" " \ei. Madame. " I have U> puy 5.000 francs away very early in the morning. The fact slipped my memory till just now. lou will have to run to bis house aud get the uionej for me." " Very well, Madame ' ' I will write vuu a note which you will dc liver to him. and ho will give ,ou bank bllIa to the amouut" She wroto as follows : " My ZW Monsieur Bernard: The assas sin of the Rue des Armcs and the Rue Grenard l.? now in my hou9e. Come imuiedlately with some geudarms and take him before ho escapes '? Hklk.ik Bealmacrh k/' And without eutering iuto any explanation with her sen ant, she dispatched her on the errand. She then quietly re-seated herself aud waited. Yes, she eat in the room with that man under the table for a whole hour. She eat there calm, cool, and collected. She saw tho shadow of the hand shift about several times; but the mur derer did not attempt to oscape from his place of ooncealment. In due time tho gendarmes arrived, and Jacques ReynauUl was arrested?not. however, without a violent struggle. I need scarcely add that the most convincjn^ Eroof as to his guilt was found, and in due tife> o was guillotined as 1 have shown in tho foria^ part of this sketch. ?' 1 FOE RENT AITS SALE. 1 OFFER viclr," \ i anil a depot This Farm r tins section 1 .
