WASHINGTON, D. C., SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1858. WO. 1,587. THE WEEKLY STAR. LEMOXFIXGERft. Five Tear* ago, I was telegraph clerk at New stone Station I had a week of day daty. and a week of night daty, alternately. Christmas eve had rolled round, of all nights in the year, and there I found myself cooped ap in the little offioe; two great flaring instruments in front of me. a flaring gaslight overhead, a well-heaped grato by my aide; not forgetting ft three volume novel to assist me in wiling away the long dark hours. The night messages at News tone were never very numerous. There were rarely any for pri vate people; they referred, mostly, to the busi ness of the railway oompaoy. That evening I felt very low-spirited. It went against the grain to work on Christmas eve, when every body else seeming to be keeping holiday, and enjoying themselves. Carry and I had been engaged about two years; and for any prospect of marriage, we might be engaged twenty years lonrer. Mr. Lancaster, Carry's father, was a tradesman in a good way of business, and na turally refused to let bisdaughter marry a fel low who was getting only seventy pounds a year. He several times advised Carry to give me up. but. as she would not do that, be con tented himself with forbidding mo the house, trusting to time and distance-for they lived several miles from Newstone?to aid his cause. 1 knew that Mr Lancaster always invited a number of young people to his house 011 Christ mas eve, and 1 pictured them there, dancing; Carry flittiug about in her white muslin dress, with the ribaod round her waist thai I gave her only a month before. Would any thought of my miserable self evererossber mind, as she moved among the gay company ? Perhan3 my detected rival, Brinks the draper, might be even dancing with her, and pressing her waist with his arm at that very moment. Though not calmly to be borne; so away I went on the platform for change of scene. A clear, starlight night, with a keen breero that whistled shrill and dry through the tele graph wires above my head, and brought to my ear I he faint sounds, made Soft and sweet by distance, of the Christmas waits. Lanterns, flitting like firefliss among the wagon* in the station-yard; hoarso uncouth shouts of men. and wild shrieks from distracted locomotives that seemed tearing madly up and down, mere ly to keep themselves in a glow on such par ticular to do. So into the office again, with numbed fingers, glad of such a haven. JTho long dark nours sped slowly; when I wa? rom.-oi by the quick tinkle of the electric-bell. A-private message : "Mr Korf. Ironville. to Mr Darke, H9 High ttreet, Newstone.?Lemonfingers starts by the m?*il to-night. All Choue. Tako caro of the blaok dwarf." I was accustomed to queer messages, but thia was the oddest I had seen. I spelled it over twice to see that I had got it down correctly; then oopied it out on one of the printed forms; signed it; entered at the foot the time I had re ceived it?three, forty-five?and placed it in an envelope. Number thirty-nine, High street, was the residence of Mr. Breem the tailor, and wasouly five minutes' walk from the station. Mr. Breem generally had apartments to let, and Mr. Darke was probably a lodger. Having locked the ot fiee-aoor, I proceeded at a rapid trot towards Mr Breem's. I concluded that Mr. Darke was a showman, and that somebody was sending him a dwarf?perhaps a giant also?but cer tainly a dwarf, to put in his caravan. There was a light in the second floor of number tliirty nine. Was Mr. Darke waiting, expectant of a message 7 It looked like it. I * loud knock, and stepped back to note the effect. The light in the second floor was not moved, but the window was opened, a head popped out and a gruff voice demanded : 44 Who's thore ?" " Does Mr. Darke live here7"' 44 Why do you want to know?"' 41 I ve go\ a telegraphic message for him "Ugh. All right. Wait a moment/' A very gruff voice, certainly Next moment, the door was opened, as far as the chain would admit, and a great muscular hand was thrust out. ?? Hand it here," said Mr Darke. Aeoordingly I placed the note in his hand. Wait a oit, till I see whether any answer's required In a minute or two the window was again opened, "No answer, ' and the casoment was slammed down. With the exception of his voice, I had no more idea of Mr. Darke when I left number thirty-nine, than I had when I went. I had merely seen the outline of his head #hen he looked out of the window Whether he was a young man or an old man, a lair man or a dark man, I was equally at a loss to know. Ironville is thirty-five miles from Newstone. The mail train runs tho distance in rather under an hour, and reaches the latter place at half-past fire. As the clock pointed to hall past five. I set off for a stroll up the platform, determined that if any dwarf or giant, or other strange monster, arrived by the train, it should not depart ucseen by me. I half expected to see Mr Darke waitingfor the train; but he was not to be seen. True to its time, the train erawlcd slowly into the station; and. in another moment, the platform was flooded with those strangely attired individuals whose business or Sleasure induces them to fly by night. No warf. no giant, nor other slnnge monster. Only one passenger for Newstone; all the others booked through, as was evident from theirfran tic struggle* to find their seals the moment the bell clashed out its warning note. And this one passenger * A slim gentleman, stylishly dresssd Young, without whiskers, but with ? lo?gf*ir. moustache, which he was fond ol ?trokiag with his exquisitelv gloved thumb and He alighted jauntily from a first class carriage, smiled amiably on the porter, who touched bis cap, took up his small black port manteau, gave one harried anxious glanoe round, broko into a smile again, swaggered slowly down the plat/orm. and pushing through the heavy folding doors, emerged into the street. Home swell from London come U> spend Christ mas with his friends. I said to myself. But where can he be going at this time in the morn ing ' None of the inns will be open for above an hoar. Without waiting to consider whether it was any business of mine, I pushed through the folding-doors after the traveler. He was walk ing slowly across the little square in front of the station, looking from side to side as if not knowing which road to take Suddenly adark ?t5ar* glided out from some projection, and ad vanced towards him. 1 could hear the mur mur of a few words 1 hen, the stranger took the portmanteau from the traveler's hand, and they went on together at a rapid pacc into the town. All this 1 saw by the light of the sta tion-lamps When the two figures got beyond their influence and passed out of view in the denser darkness beyond, implied l?y a vague feeling of curiosity, i drew mycoatcloser round ate, and set off after them at a stealihv pnee, taking the darker side of the square as I went. I had not far to follow. They passed ilito High street, and stood opimsite number thirty-nine. A moment more and they wer? both inside the bouse, and the door was shut; another iii->meut and I saw the light shining from Mr. Darke's room in the second floor front. Having no expectation of seeing anything more, I turned Ltck to the office, and there, bending over a iovial fire, fell gradually iutoa dose, in which Mr Darke, th?; traveler. Carry, a black dwarf, and Binks the draper, were all mingled in a fantastic drama, revolving end lessly in my weary braio. What had a tele graphic message to do wilh the handsome traveler 7 I sleepily kept asking myself, at in tervals of a few minates. but without troubling myself to find an answer. Suddenly, a new light burst upou me. I started up, thoroughly awake; aud. touring open the despatch-book, read over again the first part of the message : '? Lemoaflutters starts by the unil to-night." Well what has that to do with the handsome traveler7 Why, this: don't the traveler wear a pair of tight-A Cling lemon-oolo red gloves7 and waii't Um oatade team oI the firvt finger of the right hand glove burst open! This I had notioed ui h? stroked his moustache But even supposing the traveler to b? the Lemon-' fingers of the menage, what ahout the blaok dwarf? He was alone. Alone? Yes?but bad he not with him a small black portmanteau' of which he seemed to take particular care, re fusing to let the porter so much as take it out of the carriage for him ? A theory ingenious, but improbable, I remarked to myself, as I put out the gas and drew up the blind, to admit the struggling day. My duty was over at eight o'clock. The Loudon train was about to start as I went up the platform on my way home. Passing a group of people stauding near a carriage door, i whs suddenly startled by a deep gruff voice exclaiming to some one : 44 We shall be off in half a minute more." " I would piok that voico from a thousand as Mr. Darke's!" I ex claimed under my breath, a? I glanced quick ly round. The group had dispersed, except two persons, a man and a woman, who were preparing to take their places in the train lhe person whom I took for Mr. Darke was a bulky middle-aged man, dressed in a good suit of black clothes. He bad black hair, and thick, black eyebrows; his whiskers were black, meet ing full and bushy under his ehin; his face was pale, and marked by the small-pox, and his eyes were black, bold, an! cunning; altogether a herce follow, whom it would be unwise to en rage. His companion s face I ooubl not see it being concealed by a thick veil; but, judging lr?m her figure, she could not bo much above twenty years old. She was well, but rathor conspicuously attired; having over her silk dresa a voluminous scarlet shawl, comtortable looking enough, certainly, on a cold Christmas morning, But see ! As I liva, she has got on the v ory pair of Icmon-oolored gloves that were worn by the young dandy who arrived by the night mail; the same pair of gloves without doubt, having the out ide scam of the first fin ger of the right hand a little torn. There, too, is the ideutiual little blaok portmanteau, care fuilly earned, this tiuie, by Mr. Darko himself. ?> h;it can it all mean ? l uder ordinary circumstances I should have at once gone to bed and slept till two or three 0 clock in the afternoon; but, on Christmas .lav, such a proceeding was not to be thought ot. So, having breakfasted, I put on my Sunday suit, and left home with the intention of taking a lone stroll into the country. Before setting out, 1 went to the station to see if I could not induce a certain friend to accompany mo; when whom should I meet on the platform but Mr. (. iioop, the chief constable of Newstone. Mr. Choop is a small, wiry active looking man, with a sauntering and negligent air, as if he were in want of something to do. Mr. Choop has a smiling, open countenance; he wears his hat very much at the back of his head, and generally displays an ample amount of shirt bosom; seeming, in hi* quiet way, to invite the confidence of everyone. But, tell him some thing tnat interest* him; cxcite him, bring him out of the oassive into the active mood, and you will see his eyes beoome keen and piercing, his features sharpen, and his teeth glisten. He looks at such a moment, as dangerous and mischievous as a tiger-cat crouching for a spring. Air. Choop is a distant relative of mine by marriage, and was aware of the slate of my affections. He wa&in the passive mood, when 1 encountered him on the platform, and looked the most amiable and artless of men. ??uW Joa thi" corning?" he said as we shook hands. "And how is Carry? Have the out man and you made matters up yet 1head disconsolately. Weli faint heart you know," he added, with a smile 44 What brings me down here ? Business, to be sure. The fact is," mysterious ly taking me by the button, 44 the're was a daring burglary committed last night at Iron ville. and property to a large amount was stolen. From information I recoived half-an hour ago by telegraph, I have reason to believe that one ot the accomplices, having in his pos session a considerable part of tho stolen proper y, arrived here early this morning by the mail ya,n- ? slender young man, fashionably dressed, light flaxen moustache; wearing a pair of lemon-colored kid gloves, and cairying a small black portmanteau." 1)ar"'8 friend, by Junlter !" , , ' w.h?t do you mean f" asked Choop, sharply with his eager ferret look thatchangf?d him at ence into another mau. Three minutes sufficed to put him in possession of all I knew Choop gave an almost imperceptible jerk of the thumb, and a tall ungainly looking man, having the ap^aranca of a farm laborer in his best clothes, lounged up; and I recognized timothy, Mr. Choop s confidential subordinate. [to bk continued.] SHIP.RAISING AT kCBASTUPOL. A correspondent, writing from Scbaatopol under date of November 5, says : '* We had a terrible excitement on board one day last week. One of the divers, (Harris, the Jbuglish marine spoken of before,) a first-rate lei ow, and bold as a lion, goes down examining tho outside of tho ship on which they are at work. He had been forward and was going aft along the bottom, in sixty feet of water, when he suddenly signaled for more air, and, though the pressure was instantly increased, two more signals for 4 air,' and 4 to come up' followed in rapid succession, and then ceased all reply to signals given. Thinking the fault was in the air-pump, the speed was increased until a pipe bursting near the engine showed that the hose was foul. Then shouted to the other party in a row-boat at a little distance to come to the rescue, that diver was brought up by his tend ers, and tbey commenced rowing for the steam er. Meanwhile, poor Harris made no more re sponse to the anxious signaling of his tenders, and they had tried in vain to haul him up; the life-line was also foul. The pump was kept slowly iu motion, but no bubbles came up from the water, and we knew that no air was reach ing him. The row-boat was coming as fast as possible, but t thought it never would arrive. At last they came alongside. The diver's hel met was closed, strong hands worked rapidly and sileotly. and in an instant he was lowered oat of sight, the hose of bis suffocating oomnan ion in his hand, 1 hero was an interval of two or three minutes of fearful suspense, in which no word was spoken by any of the score of men gathered there, save one whisper.4 It must be too late.' Suddenly a second column of rising air-bubbles appeared. 4 The hose is cleared - be has air,' several voioes spoke eagerly. 44 Then followed the signal for rising, and up they earns-poor Harris all stark and motion less. Stop Lhe pump, he is dead,'said one. unscrewing the eye-glass through which he saw the ghastly countenance and frothy lips. But the cold air striking his livid faee, the eye-lids half oncned and closed again. 'He is alive!' they all cried joyfully, and removing the un sightly helmet and dashing water on his head and breast, be presently began to breathe per ceptibly, and after an hour's diligent rubbing from as many s rong and willing hands as could get around him, be began to come to con sciousness. He suffered great pain for hours in the head Hnd breast, but is now altogether recovered, and diving as usual." A'ovhrr KentuckyMleder?An Attempt at RaacDB.-We learn from the Mt.

I have boon also pleased wi?h your remarks and di rections on the treatment of the eyes, for the pur pose of preserving and improving the sight. Respectfully roars, CH8. CAL.DWKLL, Professor of M.

Tobias s Glasses, I am enabled to testify that their hardness, olearness, polishing, and exact optical shape render them particularly reoommendable to those whose merely optical impairment of the eyes are in want ol saoh auxiliaries. I oonsider. moreover, Mr. Tobias fully sualified to determine the foous or the eye,both by hri optical knowledge and experience, and by rows of his optometer. In addition, Icanrurther stats that Mr. Tobias has supplied some of my pa lo LTwis SlPf-M'X Physician and San eon, Berlin; Member of the Royal College of Surgeons. England; Member of the Medical Society of London, and of the Pathological Sooiety of New.York; late Sur geon ol the Royal Orthopaedio Institution of Manohester, England, and Surgeon of the B. O. Institution. Nobvolk, Va., July 8,1B64. In tho exporienoe of even two years, I have found great difioulty in obtaining Spectacles that were ex actly adapted to the weakness of my sight. This in oonvemenoe Mr. Tobias seems to have removed for the present by the substitution for me of better and more suitable Glasses. They are clear, chrystal-like and oomfortable to my eyes. I would oommend him to those who from age or other infirrmtr require ar tificial aid in this way. J. J. SIMKINS, M. D. WiLMiNaroii, N. C., June 16, 1864.
