Id September 1852, I occupied a room in a *?r>-?k>ry frame building on Stoekton street In the honee perbapa was half a dosen lodger*, poaalbly mora. Am I viaited my room daring the day, and inTariably retired at twelve o'clock. I rarely met any of my neighbors, or, if I did. it waa without ksowing them, With two of my fellow tojgen I became partially aequainted. One wu a middl*>aged man, occupying a room adjoining mint, and dirided from it by a thin partition. Against that thin boandarjr stood our b%ds, the middle-aged CiUeman'a and m\ae, not to axoead three be* apart. The middle-aged gentleman was weddod Hi tk> w?w;? i>>j was a pec.'iitr snore; not * periodical mur mur, accompanying erery fourth or Ifth in 'pi^tion, but a tarrifle and uninterrupted oooibination of snorts. groans and snuffles, With* tb? addition of teeth grinding, and ooee Vional plunks of the extremities agamat ihe creaking foot-beard. For one week 1 bore up mgainat the clatter. At length, one night, I knoeked at hit door. I was dr*perate. He roae, struck a light, and for the first lime icet face to face. I bad prepared myself to dejuge him with saroam, to abuae kirn with billings gate, to sink him with abuse. His face wa.< so rout) I aad jovial, and his head to entirely destitute ot hair, that I could not summon courage to utter a harsh word. For a mo ment, we peered silentlj into each other's faces. * Can I do anything for you?" I inquired, baulk, for that was his name, mu?t have teed my thonghu?must have known that he snored, must have been aware of the object of mj visit, for ha smilingly replied : " Yea, wv friend, join me in a glass of It rand 7 and water, I have few drops of Muviuisg genuine. rtrmu me to inrist,5' he continued, obeerving my hesitation, "you will sleep all the better fur it," and be give me a look, swelling over with comoHMratton. I meekly followed him to the sideboard, and we pledged each other in a glaas of an cient Tillage He then pressed me to smoke a cigar 1 could scarcely do lew. Sitting on the side of thq bed, with his rotund YWage peeping throvgh n pause of smoke, and his rit legs #wiQjr\0g good naturedly, Smith was a f>ioiarQ% Together we would have afforded an amus:ng sketch for Punch. He talked inaee eaptiy, and before I left him we touched #?wa?al ?? J T m " rv.vi>i uiiin, iuu x nrmij resolved that he aught snore night and day, for n year to com*, and I would not disturb him. I wrung his hand in an ecetacy of friendship, and bade him an affectionate good-night. I tumbled in bed, but tried in vain to aleep. Smith's brandy was playing strange tricks with my fancy, and I felt as if something was whispering, u to Macbeth, '-Sleep no more !" I lit a candle and found it was two o'elock Irritated at ay wakefulness, I drew on my clothes. and was soon in the street. The moon rode high in the heavens, and the night was beautifi'A as a poet's dream. Strolling along th? 3treet as far as Clay, I suddenly turned tbfe.corner, and encountered a crowd of half drunken rowdiea, standing in front of a houso they had either just left, or were about to enter. In the act of retracing my steps, I heard some one exclaim, in a boyish tone : "Not to-night, gentlemen, Some other time; but not to-night; please excuse me." Th? ancikor in n??in? ?1"?? ,l>- v" J _ g ? ? - - - ? vuu OIIVTIV) uau be?a slopped by the rowdies and invited to drink. 4*Bah/' xcUimed a number of Toicea, "You milt come up to the scratch. either drink or tight " '* But, gentlemen, I cannot," insisted the btraagcr, struggling to free himself from the grasp of hu persecutor*. "I ean neither drink nor light, to-night. I am not well !" "Gammon growled the party, attempting to forcw him into the house. I felt that, as a conservator of the pence and champion of social/, it was my duty to inter fere. Smith's bready told me so, aud furnished the nerve, in addition, to carry out the resolu tion. Stalking quietly in upon the crowd, I lair) mv Kaiul ??tK? ** J ? . ..M> ?MMJ vu? Vij W OUUU1UC1 , UU ru* guested hi in to follow me. He turned to oom ply. when, "(Jive him one !" jelled one of the rowdies, and the next moment I received a blow in the back of the neck, and found mjself leaning against the wide of a huuse. 1 wh not stanned, but exasperated beyond measure. The liquor of my bald-headed fellow-lodger * tee led my nerves to aation, and [ threw my self into a position of defence. Not doubting my perfect ability t?j scatter that erowd over an aere >4 ground, I invited the unequal con test. The appearance of a polioeinau spared the impending slaughter, fur the party sud denly left the held. My oompanion informed the o&oer of what bad occurred, and he started in pureait of the retreating rowdies, enjoining us to ftui the way to our lodgings. Taking the ?rm of the laid, we proceeded toward my i-Oom. He wu a pale-faeed, interesting look ing young man of perhaps eighteen or nineteen ?ears, remarkably well bred and intelligent. 9 was dressed in good taste, without affeet inc any of the airs oT maturer Tears, and f w*? quit* taken with him. He told me bis name ?m Richard Jau^eu; that he was alone in Cal ifornia. bat not without mean*, that he lived on Stockton street, and, visiting a friend that evening, had been detained to that unusual hour. In i few moment* we arrived at mj lodgings, and observing that he evinced little inclination to part with me I invited him to accept a portion of my bed for the night. He 33iiiDjjly declined, stating that he was quite nanr b') own, and I then learned, for the first time, that he occupied a room in the same house and oa the same floor with myself Thus I became acquainted with two of my fellow lodgers. Jensen and myself often met after that, but it was always in the street or on the atairwax fie nerer invited me to hU room, or accented a invitation U> Bin*, lie visited mo but once at my office, cod then remainod loss than five I'lT"-? How h* spent his time I did not in attire He was a mystery I spoke of him to mith one day. Strange to aay, that gentle man had never seen him, hut from my descrip tion of him, ventured the opiaion that he was either a gambler or a genteel pickpocket. ' I was reluctantly forced to the conclusion that baaith wait right, and after that I treated the young Ban with anusual coldness He ob served the chance, and his looks wore a re proach to sorrowlul that I half repented hav i Dg harbored the anspicion of ay venerable looking friend, who was fearfully averse to all aayetenee. Occasion called ae to my room, on* evening, at an earlier hoar than usual I heard a sort rap at ay door, and opening it, found Jansen standing in the entry ?' Come in, Jansen," I exclaimed, throwing onen the door. t " Would too not prefer taking a walk 1" he Inquired " The night i< beautiful '' I believe not. to-night," I replied, "souie ?^b?r tuat " 1 ?u a little piqued that he ahould peraint in remaining oataide the doar.

I felt aeaved he deeired la tell mo aome thing of binsaelf, and I waa all anxietj to bear it. It waa uapleaaant to think him a pickpocket or harper, and I hoped he might be able to prvra to me that he waa neither. Wa left the house and proceeded along Stock aitreet toward Happy Valley.

" Make it appear so," I answered, " and yen shall not want a friend. 14 Promise that you will not divulge what I may tell you, or attemDt bv word or aet to thwart me in the accomplishment of a purpose to which I hair* pledged my soul," he aaid, looking me earnestly in the fa?e, " and you shall have the proof you require." "If your purpoae is not criminal, I promise; if otherwise, keep your secret," was my an swer. " "Tis what you would do. or aay other tnan worthy of the name." ' Th?b I promise, here is my haad." - (> l>tct))'' he returned, taking my arm, and miking slowly on, "I have a twin sister. We were bore in Georgia, and ourparsota war* the possessors of a hundred and a plantation Urge enough to give all employment. When we were fourteen our father uied. At the age of sixteen my sister became a convert, during a religious revival, and six months after, ia the face of the determined 0D?oaition of m* mother ran away with and married a young preacher, to whose eloquence the revival owed lit origin. My sister did not love the man. Her feelings for him were a religious enthusiasm, a fancy wrought upon by an unnatnral initiation. Learning that they were married, my {rood mother sent for them, and they returned to receive her blessing. The plantation was Elaced in charge of my aiat&r s husband, and o relinquished the Gospel. lie frequently visited New Orleans, and other of tho Urge Southern citiee. during the >irst year of his marriage, hut the eireumatanees excited no ?tts?icion. r*>r~ k- i?:-* v.* * ** in uc unci, ueiure 1*0 year* elapsed, me large o*late left by our father wit swept from as. and we were almost bankrupt.

My poor siater was heart-broken. U..1 * ? - s??juiw, i<j escape proaecuuon. nea trom the State. His first wife waa sent to ibe mad house, and in three months my poor old mother was laid in the churchyard. My grief-bowed sister?bat I will not speak of her. Turning the wreck of our property iijto money, I started in pursuit of the scoundrel who had dealt such havoc with our peace. Through a dozen States I tracked hyn. and returned with my mission of vengeance unaccomplished. One year ago. by accident, I learned he waa in California, As soon ai I recovered from a serious illness under which I waa laboriug, I took passage for thla State- I arrived six months ago. He is here, for I have seen him, and be cannot eacape me now ! He is even in this city, but little dreama that the pistol ia shotted to send him to the great reckoning. I have made few acquaintances, having no wiah to implicate others in a work of blood that muat be mine alone. Last night I followed him from the EI 1/viauu, n UCiC UC SLItUUD UlVfl Ul U1S UlUtJ.

But he will not marry her, for another week shall not sea him alive' You now know all. Have I one friend in California?" To see so much spirit, eo much determina tion, ao much manhood exhibited by a beard less boy, surprised me beyond expression. I offered th? brave little fellow my hand, and he felt that ha was answered. In silence we returned to our lodgings. Bidding Jansen good night, I stepped into Smith's room for a moment I found the old gentleman some what agitated. He had lost a valuable dia, inobd pin that day. and freely intimated that the "sleek young cuss," as he denominated Jtnsen, had stolen it. I so strenuously en deavored fn diamr.ate the imnrmii/m that T verily believe be felt inclined to transfer the odium of the supposed theft to me. That night Smith soored louder than usual. Three days after, I met Jensen in the street and learned that he had taken rooms on Powell street. I did not inquire the reason, I thought I knew it. The next day I again met him His face was unusually pale, yet he said he had not felt better for years. ' There is to be a wed ding on Powell street to-morrow; at least so Mayhew say*, but there will be no bridegroom! Do yoa understand ?" He placed his finger significantly to his lips, and we separated At eight o'clock the next evening, as Isaac Mtyh?w ww mounting the stepe of the houM* to which Jannen had traced him six days before, a pistol ball pierced his heart, and he dropped dead upon the pavement. Some unaccountable influence had drawn me to the neighborhood, and hearing the report of a pistol, Janaen s words flashed through ray mind, and I started, with a doien others, in the direction of the tragedy. Before I arrived on the spot Quite a crowd had collected. The body of nayhew was lying upon the sidewalk, and over it, ia *pee?hle*4 agony, stood the widow, who waa to hare been a nride Who saw thia?" inquired a policeman. " I heard the report of a piatol," Mid one of the crowd, " and, a minute after, saw a man enter that house rouder," and he pointed to a small frame building on the opposite tide of the atreel in an inatant to* omcer, followed by the ax cited spectators, started for the home. Spring ing through the crowd, I reached the tide of the policemen, and, u he knocked at the doer, I vai at hii elbow I felt that Jansen wu there. The door waa quietly opened, and a well-dressed lad J calmly inquired the objeot of the viait. " We are looking for a man who, a few min utes aince, committed a murder across the strati,' aaid the ofioer. ' And do you expect to find him in mj room, sir*" continued the lady. ' No, madam," replied the policeman, rather politely for one of hie calling; " but I #il glanoe through your apartment, merely M a matter ?f form, before proceeding to the other portions of the house." The officer entered, I closely following. While he waa examining the room, I for the first time obtained a fair view of the lady's face. Involuntarily I threw up my hands in amaiement She detected the movement, a?d, miick u thought, placed her finger on her lip*. In a moment I comprehended all. Richard Jumi atood before me. No?Richard no long er. now that she had alaiu the deetroyer of her peace, but Martha Janaen. ray former fallow lodger. Heaven*, wh*t a diacovery! And for me to hare been to uonfoundedly Wind, too? hut no matter. The polieemaa aearched the house, hut did not find the murderer. The next day I met Martha on Montgomtry street. She smiled and bowed, and I coafeeal thought her an axeeadiagly pretty woman A week after she quietly left the Stat* for Georgia, where she la now redding. After the aailinc of the lUuer I received a note through the poet ofltae from Martha. She explained all, and tbaaked me for the aaaiftance I had ren dered her, and the klodoaM ?howu to her in aginary twin brother, Richard. #,n, ' ? . . r> til -- T 1! i w ON ft wurmea owuu, *? i uia on* even inj, that the "alaak young earn" whom he had viewed with to mach tnspfoion, wii a woman, be waited for ma to repeat the amnion, and then checked himeelf In the aet of ealli lier.

I met her in the street a few day? ago, How vividly the sight of her faca brought to mind the incidents I have re lated. She will read thii little story, perhaps, nnd learn, for the first time, why ahe did not become the wife of Majhew, the bigamist. * Anecdote or Stbpbeh Girabd.?Old Jlrard had a favorite olerk, and he always said "he intendod to do well by Ben. Lippincott." So when Ben got to be twenty-one he expected to heat the Governor say something of his fntnre proapeota, and perhaps lend a helping band in starting him in the world. But the old fot carefully avoided the aubjeot. Ben mustered courage "1 suppose I am free, air," said he. "and I thought I would say something to jna as to my course; whet do you think I had bet-, ter do?" "Yes, yes, t know you are," said the old millionaire, "and my advice is that you go and learn the cooper's trade." This application of ice nearly froie Ben out, but re covering his equilibrium, he said if Mr. Girard was in earnest he would do so. "I am in earnest," and Ben sought the beet ooeper in Spring Garden, became an apprentice, and in due time could make u good a barrel as the best. He announced to old Stephen that he had graduated and was ready to set up busi ness. The old man seemed gratified, and im mediately ordered three of tne best barrels he could turn out. Ben did his prettiest, and wheeled them up to the old man's counting room. Old Girard pronounoed them first rate, and demanded the price. "One dollar," said Ben, "ia now aa low as I can live by." "Cheap enough?make oat your bill." The bill wm made out and old Steve settled it with a check for $30,000, whioh he accom panied with thia little moral to the story : " There, take that and invest it in the best possible manner, and if yoa are unfortanate and loae it, you have a good trade to fall back upon, which will afford you a good living." We abeuld like to aee all the old solid fel* lows trying that experiment. It might spoil a barrel or two, but it wouldn't spoil the Doys.
