Mr. Choop sent Timothy off to Number Tbir tj-niM to make certain incline*; theo went himself to the bookingoffice to ask of the clerk whether be remembered to what atation Mr Darke and hi* companion were booked The clerk booked so many passengers by that train that he c.uld not possibly remember; but he thinks, through to London. Mr Choop then desired me to accompany him to the telegraph offlce The eight o'olook train had hardly got half way to Loudon yet. By consulting a time table Mr Choop found out at what part of the line the train ought to be; *>, at bis request, I telegraphed to the station at which it would next stop; giving a brief description of Mr Uarke and his companion, desiring the train to be searched on iu arrival, and the individual in question to be detained. In a quarter of an hour we received a reply : " The train has been searched, but no individuals, answering to your description, were in it." " Telegraph to each station where the train has stopped, said Mr. Choop, "until you dis cover at whioh vf them the man and woman sot out. ? So I telegraphed to four stations without sue cess, but the fitih answered, " Ves, the individ uals you meution reached here by the Ham train." * ?? Til have you yet, Jim Riley!" exclaimed Mr. Choop, with a grim smile. ?? Fred, by boy, .{0S-WanL to **? * bit of fan- "n<J g<' with Timothy and me. you are welcome " A* the clock struck twelve we found ourselves at Fulwood-station?Mr. Choop, Timothv. and After making a few inquiries of the ?tall?.master, Mr. Choop sent Timothy in one ?traction, while he and I took another. Mr. Choop put cautious questions to several indi viduals, but without gaining any decisive in formation. Neither was Timothy, when we me* biin able to furnish any satisfactory intel ligence. Mr. Choop considered for a few mo ments. " It must be as I have suspected all along Mid he, at last. 44 We shall find theiu at the Ten Tramps; step out, lads. Best leg foremost. ? We lefi the village at a rapid pace, and still keeping on the high road, got into a barren, moorland country. Fields, hedgerows, and trees, were gradually left behind; until, at length, we were shut in oruujKry side by swell ing hillocks, of moor, which tWept away as far ^?r*ueye Can reMch< *nJ bound the horizon wit* their sinuous, graceful liucs. Following guidance of Mr. Choop, we quitted the high **ter a time, and came to a halt under the lea of a higher hillock than oommon. Mr. Choop. taking off his hat clambered up the hill and took a stealthy survey over its summit. He then beckoned me to follow. Peepingover, I found that we were on a summit of a ri igo of country, from which the road swept down into h small valley, in the middle of which, and close to the high road, stood a small square house. ^ The Ten Tramps. I dar* wajjer that Jim ?k *UJ his wife are in that bouse," said Mr. Choop. 44 It is a notorious gathering-place for the rogues in the district." Mr. Choop descended, and he and Timothy ?old secret council for some minutes. Then Uimothy opened a email bundle?brought all the from Ncwstone?and proceeded, with much gravity, to induct himself into a wag op*.V .""'*fc-fr?ck. plentifully braided anJ ''liMd. after the fashion in which wag oners delight. He next turned up the bottoms of bis fustian trowscrs. so as to bring into more prominent view his laced up boots; then he ?ive his hat a push back, and his hair a push forward, and set off at a swinging pace in the direction of the Ten Tramps, whistling the Plough Boy as he goes. Mr. Choop and I pissed the next half hour together, smoking cigars and discussing various matters, with a glance over the hillock every two or three iuioutes in the direction of the inn. " why not wait till night," I asked Mr Choop " when you oould approach the inn without be ing seen ?** " Because, after dark, we should be pretty aurt 0? finding half-a-doion rough customers ihttrc wti.* would make the matter awkward." "Theo WLT not take half a-dozen men with you. so as to a? oid all risk t'f 44 What credit would be in that? When Timothy and I fail* "ill be time enough to *alk about ou'.Lng iu fiber assistance. There he isl" Timothy was lo^sginjr again 'f the door-post, ?moking a long el ay-pi do While we were watching him, be took off his hat, and scratched <.iis head vigorously: a secondtiaie; and a third time. "All right'" said Mr. Cboop "Tbatwns the signal. Lend me your cap. Fred, and you take my hat; 1 don't want Riley to recognize me till I get into the house." Having make the transfer, we set off, Mr. Choop walking with an assumed limp. Timothy w*s sti!l smoking his pipe at the ?door when we reached the inn. 44 Foine day master." wi#rJ "V m*n'" "Plied Mr Choop. W u&t iort of a tap have joa got here ?M "Oh, toidyiah. You ll foind the landlord ~?mewhere insoide. All the women-folk seem to be goDc out souiewhere.'' 'Two/lasses uf your best ale, landlord," ex ' - *'?ed Mr. Choop to a burly red-beaded man with a villainous eountenanaa, who cunie for ward, scow I iug suspiciously. The landlord s otck was hardly turned before aquick whisper "~a exchanged between Timothy aud Mr Choop W e were lighting our <*jg?rs when the landlord returned with the ale. Ji? showed us into a small room, and we left the oo?ntry waa still smoking at tbe door, lie seemed to / ,jr "?u1, this countryman, for he cailod for glass after glass rapidly, as if fully determined on vetting drunk in the shortest riossible time, lie drank so much that the landlord s big jug was at last exhausted, and he lighted a candle to go down into the collar U? draw more ale. Hardly had the landlord reached the bottom of the cellar-steps, before tbe door was quietly looked behind him. Mr. Choop s a pithy vanished in a moment, ilii ejres daiLed, hi* teeth j(Ii*teueil. he looked dangerous " cJo you into tbe garden." he whispered to me, 4- and lake your stand below the window on tbe left. If J,m Kj|ey jUII)i,a out. though I don t think he 11 have time, lay hold of him, and stick to him till I come Now, Tun, quick *n<i jileiit! 9 Air Choop and lim othy, each pulling out an ugly-looking staff ?7E '^althil> ? tvvo burglars, while I hastened into the garden A mingled moiso of shouting and oaths, crowned by a woman's wild shriek, the crash 'J a ?od then tbe window was tlung up, and Mr Darke dashing madly through, followed closely by Cboop Tbev came to tbe ground almost together. and rolled over in a fierce struggle. But Mr. Darke. twice as strong as his opponent, was uppermost, sitting astride of Mr Cboop. Ouly for oue moment; for the next, my arms wore round bis neck. I gave bim a sudden pull back, with all my strength. Choop, now on his feet, whipped out his hand-cuffs, and bad Mr. Darke safe and fast before that individual could recover his breath * At thlj moment Timothy appeared, escorting Mrs. Riley, as I suppose she ought to be called; and carrying with much ."?are. the small black portmanteau. Mr Choop opened it. and I perceived it to bo half-lull of watches, rings, pins, and jewelry of various kinds. The wo man's veil, now thrown back, showed me the midnight traveler, minus the moustache; a l??id, forward looking. g<?od-featured woman, bearing her misfortnue with a hautv indiffer ence that exc-ted Timothy's admiration The landlord, kicking at his cellar-door, and calliD# to be let out, long before thi*, was re leased by Timothy; and very blank h? looked when h? beheld bow his guests bad suddenly eome to grief. By Mr. Choop's orders ho brought out bis horse and a light eart. and we drove back, through the darkening afternoon to Fulwood. rorougb Mr. Choop's indefatigable exertions, th? wbek of the gang of burglars wu speedilj captured. One of them turned Queen's evi dence; and it then caine out tbat Mr. Hiler was the planner only of the burglaries in which they Lad all been engaged for some time back; it duty 10 P'ck ?at the premises to be rubb?d, to make plans of them, and arrange the details of the attack, leaving toothers the mere ly mechanical part of the business, and reoeiv ing a certain share of the proceeds for his part of the labor. r Three days after Christmas day I roceived a note Irom Mr. Lancaster, asking me to go over to ironville, as he wished particularly tosee me lie received me in his grave, quiet way, looked me through and through from under his bushy grey eyebrows, motioned me to a seat, and then spoke received yesterday morning from Mr. Choop an account of certain events relative to the recent burglary on my premises " The burglary on your premises, sir?" " i es Were you not aware of it ?" "I was of course aware that a robbery had been committed, but was not aware that you were the sufferer." "Suoli, however, is the case." said Mr. L " Mr. Choop informs me that it tu through you he first obtained the clue which enabled bim to traik and capture part of the gang, aud recover a portion of the stolen property, and that he was much indebted to your courage and activity in the capture of Riley. Now, 1 hiu n.o* ungrateful you have long had a liking for my daughter, which. I believe, is re tar ned by her; but you are not in a position to mnrry. 1 will tell you what I will do for you. I will take you as an assistant in my shop, at a moderate salary, and if I find that you bring into your new trade that amount of intelli gence and activity which 1 am told you possess, I will advance you accordingly ; and, providing you and Carry remain in the asm* mind auother year, I will not object to jour marriage. Let me have your decision in the morning. You will fiud C.iry in the parlor." I need torfHry gay. that both Carry and I are .very glad to *ee Mr. Cboop whenever he favors as with a ?nil in our new home, and bring* us news of Lemonfingers; who, now that Mr. Riley is working out his penal servitude, is doing well as a licensed hawker in the hoosiery and .Nottingham line. A( TORS AND ACTRESSES. from the period immediately preceding the .Shaksjterian epoch, down to our own time re ligious excommunication and social ban have rested on the (theatrical) profession. Occa sionally there have been great spirits, like Uarriek and the Kembles, who. to tome extent, ha va. thrown off *hc general stigma and risen proudly above it by the force of individual character; but. as a body, actors and actresses have been, down to a very recent period, and are still to some extent, regarded as social pa nabs. With the increase of intelligence and liberality this feeling is fast passing away, and actors aud actressesare beginning to be judged, like the members of all othor professions, by their public capacity and private worth. The profession of the stage is perhaps the most laborious of all crafts, requiring almost unceasing mental and physical effort. The duties of an actor comprise a study of new parts, and recovery of old ones, occupying on an average, from two to four hours a day an attendance at rehersal in the morning, occupy ing about two hours a day; and a performance each evening, occupying in winter four, and in summer about three hours. The salaries of actors vary considerably; they may. however, bo set down as averaging in trance, from 20 to 2<?0 francs a month; in Eng ,fn. /n"n to ??2rt tt month ; and in the Linted Mates from $*> to$l60a month. Actors who have some acknowledged excellence, or peculiar individuality, or are especially at tractive. are called stars, and earn generally I from $400 to $2.5(? a month. Actors aud actresses, as the records of the | stage attests, are proverbially long lived, and free troin bodily infirmity, ferformancei are seldom changed by illness of the performers. In many theatres a season has passed without a single alteration, even of a part, from illness. This healthiness is doubtless owing to their no cessarily active life, aud regular exercise, not only of the limbs, but also of the internal or gaus of the throat and lungs, thereby fortify ing the weakest portion of the human system. W ben not addicted to intemperance, to which the exciting cbaractor of the life Inclines too rnur.y of the malo portion of the profession, many actors have reached the very longest pe riod of duration of human life. Of all olasses, th?y are freest from crime. This is owing mainly to the constant occupation of mind, time and body in their pursuit; but it may in soDi0 degree also be attributed to their softness of feullng. and sympathy of character. They are charitable, almost to recklessness.?Ayplu tun i New Atntriimn Cyclojuet/in "Sr*Ayboatisi?" iNb "Sniping "?Perhaps every one docs not know what is meant by "ste.iuiboating on diy land. The term means humbuggiug, victimizing in the worst possible degree. The last case of aggravated steam boating took place in Yuba county, at the ex pense of an inveterate story-teller. The com pany g ot bim t?> toll m favorite story, and when near the laughing pota't they all wa'lked off, by pre-concert, and one of theu?, lacking in at the door cried ??steamboat." In the western tiitej they have a similar process, called -'sniping." When a stranger arrives in thl* neighborhood, if he makes any pratentions whatever, his initia tion is not complete until ho goes a-sniping. There is hardly a fowl of the sort in the country^ but they make bim believe that the prairies ar? alive with tnipe, which cau be naught at night in great numbers, in a bug, held after the manner of a seUnet On the way a dispute is rained as to who shall hold til* hag, and it is finally agreed that the strangor'fhafl too l.e if stationed at a certain place, with a bag, while the others go out to drive the birds, j he vil lains keep getting further off, "shooting" at the ima<riuary fowls all the while, until, getting j out of bis sight, they dodge off home, leaving : the victim'toffind out that he has been "sniped. Big, fat men, members of the Legislature und ! Congress, aud .Ministers of the Gospel, are like subject to the misfortune of -'sniping " .Sharp fellows, suspecting humbug say, "Come, old hoss, you can't snipe mPieayunt. I J. P. in tub Smkit World.?a' few days ago Mr. Alfred Lister, of Tarrytown, X. Y , called at our office and related that at j a circle composed of some eighteen intelligent persons held at his house a few evenings pre vious. a spirit purporting to be that of J. P. Donnelly, who was lately hang as the porpe trator of the Sea Yiew House murder, took possession of the medium, and discoursed at | great length by way of showing that he could | not have committed that murder Me ex : pressed much grief tbat his ' poor old gray I headed father' was so bowed down in sorrow because he could not believe in his son's inno 1 e*-nc?, and that his '? dear sister" had suffered such great distres* on account of his having , oome to such an end, but spoke of '* that dear . girl Liny as never having believed him guilty His appeal and argument firmly con vinced oar iuformsnt aud others of the circle that he was innocent, and greatly excited their sympathies, although, it appears, they knew nothing of Donnelly or his family.

I oonsider. moreover, Mr. Tobias fully qualified to determine the foousorthe eye,both by his optical knowledge and experience, and by means of his optometer. In addition, 1 oan further state that Mr. Tobias has supplied some of my pa tients with Glasses, to their and my satisfaction . Ja LEWIS BALER, M. D..

I have tne^ different epticuana without obtaining glasses perfectly fitted to my eyee. Four months sinoe Mr. Tobias made two pairs especially lor me, whioh I have found to serve me perfectly. By the nee of his optometer he is enabled to adapt glasses most miuutely to the eye.
