Translation for the Press of “La Tour du Monde en Qumrtre-Vingts Jours” of Jules Verne. CHAPTER VI. Here are then.the circumstances under which the dispatch concerning Mr. Fogg had been •enl. On Wednesday, the ninth of October, the steamer Mougolia, of the Peninsular and Eastern Company, was due at Suez at eleven o'clock A. M. She cairied 2800 tons with a nominal force o! power. The Mon golia made regular voyages from Brindisi to Bombay by the Suez Canal. She was one of the fastest steamers of the line—her ordinary speed being ten pel hour between Brin disi and Suez—and 0.53 between Suez and Bombay—and was always ahead of time. While waiting the arrival of the steamer, two men promenaded on the quay in the midst of a crowd of Indians and foreigners." One of these men was the Consular Ageut of the United Kingdom established at Suez; the other was a small lean man, w'th an intelli gent face, across whose long eyelashes spaik led an eye very bright., the fire of which he could extinguish at will. At this moment he gave evident signs of impatience, going— coming—not able to rest anywhere. This man’s name was Fix; he was one of the agents of the police sent to the various posts alter the robbery of the Bank of Eng land. He watched with the greatest care all the travelers taking the route to Suez, and if one seemed suspicious he would send for a warrant of arrest. Not more than three days since Fix had received from the agent of police, a description of the pre sumed author of the theft. It was that of the distinguished and aristocratic person seen in the room of the cashier of the Bauk. Al lured by the great reward promised in case of success, Fix waited with an impatience easy to understand, the arrival of the Mongolia. “And you say, Cousul,” asked he for the tenth time.” that this boat cannot be late?” “No, Mr. Fix. She was signalled this morning at the port of Said, and the hundred an 1 sixty kilometres of the Canal are nothing for such a sailer. The Mongolia has always gained 'he bonus of £25 which the govern ment grants for each advance of 24 hours on the regular time.” “This steamer comes direct from Brindisi ?” asked Fix. “From Brindisi, where she has taken the mails—from Brindisi, which she left Satur day at 5 P. M.,—be patient, it will not be late. But I do not know how with your de scription you will he able to recognize your man if he is on board the Mongolia.” “Consul, one feels rather than recognizes these men. It is a scent that one must have, and this scent is like a special sense formed by the hearing, sight and smell. I have ar rested in my life more than one of these gen tlemen, and, provided that tuy thief is on hoard, I promise you he will not slip through my hands-” “I wish you success, Mr. Fix; it concerns an important theft.” “A magnificent theft,” replied the agent with enthusiasm. Fifty-five thousand pounds! We do not often have such a god send. Thieves become mean—the race of Sheppards fades away—they risk hanging nowfor a few shillings!'’ “Mr. Fix, yo« are so earnest that I hope you will succeed,” said the Consul, “but I say agaiu under the conditions, I fear ycu will find it difficult. You know well, that in this description, the thief resembles absolute ly—an honest man.” ■‘Consul, great thieves resemble honest men. You understand that those who have the faces of rogues have only one thing to do —they must r naii' honest, or they will be arrested. The honest faces are the ones to be watched after all. A difficult task I ad , mit—itis not a trade, it is an art.” One will see that Fix was not wanting in a dash of seif esteem. Meanwhile the quay became animated lit tle by little. Sailors of different nationalities, traders, brokers, fellahs, gathered there. The arrival ot the steamer was evidently near. It was then half past ten. “But it will not arrive said Fix, is be heard the clock of the port ring. “It cannot be far away,” said the consul. “How long will she remain at Suez?” “Four hours; time to tal.e in coal From Suez to Aden at the exfremety of the Red Sea. it is 1310 miles, and they must make pro vision for coal.” “Andfrom Suez, this boat goes to Bom bay ?” “Direct without delay.” “Well”, said Fix, “if the thief has taken this route, and this boat, it would enter into his plan to land at Suez, in order to gain by another route, the Dutch or French possess ions in Asia. H» will not be safe in India on English ground.’’ “Unless he be ashrewd knave,” replied the consul. “A criminal is better concealed in XiOndou, than he would bo in any foreign land.” After these remarks the consul returned to his office, only a few steps away. Fix remained alone'filled with a nervous impatience—by this presentiment so strange, —that the thief was on board the Mongolia. And, in truth, if the rogue had left England with the intention of gaining the New World —the route by India, less watched, or more difficult to watch, would have his preference. Fix was not long left to his reflection", soma quick blasts of the whistle announcing the coining steamer. The crowd rushed to the landing. Soon they peiceived the gigantic shell of the Mongolia passing between the banks of the Canal, and, as eleven o’clock ruug, the steamer dropped her anchor at the quay. i.ucic wuic uittuj paooujjjuD uu uuaru, some of whom remained on deck to contem plate the picturesque panorama of the city; but (he most of them went ashore. Fix standing clo'.e to the iand'ng carefully scanned all the passengers. At this moment one approached him, alter having vigorously driven hack the porters who assailed him with their offers of service, and asked him politely if he could direct him to the office of the Eng lish consul. At the same time be presented a passport upon whicti he desired to have af fixed the English visa. Fix instinctively took the passport and glanced at the descrip tion,—an involuntary movement almost be trayed him—the paper trembled in his hand — the description in the passport was identical with the one he had received from the Chief of the Metropolitan police '“This passport is not yours?’’ he asked of the passenger. “No, it is the passport of my master." “And vourmaster?’’ “He remains on board.” “But he must present himself in person at'the Consul’s, in order to establish his iden tity.” “What, is that necessary?” “Indispensable.” “And where is the office ?’’ “There, at 'he corner of tiie square”— pointing to a house, distant about two hun dred steps. “Then I must find my master, who will not be well pleased to be disturbed.” The st*am4-er salute'* Fix> an(l returned to the CHAPTER VII. “Consul,” said he, “I have strong ground for belief that, our mau is on hoard the Mon golia ” and Fix recounted wliat had passed between himself and the servant. “Well, Mr. Fix, I shall not he sorry to see the face of this rogue. But he may not pre sent himself at my office if he is what you suppose. A thief does not care to leave be hind him trace of his flight, aud, besides, the formality of the passpo t is uot obligatory.” ‘•Consul, if this man is adroit, as we think be will come!” “ To have a visa put on his passport?” “Yes. These passports are at> annoyance to honest men, aud aid the flight of rogues, i affirm that this one will he right, but 1 hope you will uot sign it.” Why not? If his passport is regular I 110 right t0 refuse mv seal.” Nevertheless Consul, i must detain bin. until I have received a warrant from Lou don.” “Ah I that, Mr. Fix, is your affair, but for me, I cannot.” The consuldid not finish the sentence. At this moment some one knocked at tbe door of tbe cabinet, and tbe boy introduced two strangers, one of whom was the servant who had spok 11 to the detective. They were master and servant. Tbe master presented the passport, asking briefly that the consul affix lis visa. He took the passport, read it attentively, while Fix in a corner, obsetved, or rather de voured the stranger wild u.s eyes, vv iit-n the consul had finished reading he asked: “You are Phileas Fogy Esq. ? “ Yes sir, replied the gentleman. “You come from London?” “Yes.” “Aud you go to Bombay?” “Yes.” “Aud this man is your servant? “Yes, aFrenchmau, named Passepartout.” “Well, sir, you know that tbe formality of a visa is needless, and we cannot ask the presentation of a passport?” “I know it, consul, but I wish to prove by your visa my passage to Suez.” “All right, sir”—and the consul, having signed and dated the passport and placed his seal, Mr. Fogg paid the fee of the visa, coldly saluted him and went out, followed by his ser vant— “Well ?” asked Fix. “Well” answered the consul, “he has [the air of a perfectly honest man.” “Possibly,” said Fix. “but that is not the question. Do you uot find that this phleg matic gentleman resembles, feature lor feat ure, the thief of whom I have received the de scription ?” “I unde-stand, but you know all these de scriptions.”— “i shall find it out;—the servant appeal's less unaccountable to me than liis master. More than tha*, he is French, and cannot h Ip talking. I shall see you soon.” And tbe agent went out to find Passepartout. Meanwhile Mr. Fogg, after leaving the con suls we> t directly to the qnay As he went on board he gave some orders to his seivant, entered alone into his cabin, and took his memorandum, which showed the following notps. Left London October 2nd 10.35 P.M—airived at Paris, Thursday Octoder 3d 7. A. M— left ] Paris Thursday K.40, A. M.— arrived by the Mount Cenis at Turin, Friday Oct. 4lh, 6.35 A.

M.—Total in hours—l.Vit—days (>A. Mr. Fogg inscribed these dates on a journal, arranged in columns which marked, from the, 2nd of October to the 21»t of December, the months, days of the month, the regular ar rivals and the arrivals made at each principal port—Brindisi, Suez, Bombay, Calcutta, Hong Kong. Yokohama. San Fransisco, New York aud London, aud permitted him to rnai'K the gain or loss at each poiut in the journey. He marked then this day Oct. 0th, his ar rival at Suez, which, in accordance with the rules, showed neither gain nor loss.—Then he took his breaklast in his cabin. As for seeing the city, he did not think of it— CUAPTBB vm. Fix in a few moments reji ined Passepart out, who was sauuteriug ou the quay enjoy ing the novelty around him. “Well, my mau,” said Fix, approaching, ‘your passport is all right?” “Ah! is that you monsieur?” replied the Frenchman—“much obliged. We are all right.” “And you look about the country ?” “Yes,but we travel so rapidly,it seems to me I must be dreaming. And so we are in Suez? —in Egypt. At Suez, in Egypt—in Africa. In Africa 1 in Atrical lean not believe it. Wbv imagine, Monsieur, that I did not think we should go farther than Paris, that famous capital; that I saw {again only through the windows of a coach, aud in a pouring rain. I regret it—I should have liked to see once more Pcre La Chaise and the Circi s of the Camp Elysees!” “You were then in a great hurry?” inquir ed the detective. “No! no! it was my master. But 1 must purchase some shirts and stocklugs. We lelt without auy truuks, only a carpet-bug. “I will conduct you to a bazar, where you will find all you need ” “Monsieur, you are very accomu^dating.” And the two went away, Passepartout, re marking, “Above all, I must uot miss the boat.” “You have time. It is only one o'clock.” Passepartout drew out his watch—“Only 1 o’clock I It is only 52 minutes past teu 1” “Your watch is sWw,” said Fix. * My watch ? a family watch which came from my great, great grandfather ? It does not vary five minutes in the whole year! It is a trua chronometer!” “I see that it is, but you have kept the London time, which is two hours slow in the meridian of Suez. You must take caie to set your watch at 12 midday iu each coun try.” “I! to touch my watch 1“ said Passepartout, “never! never!” “Then it will not agree with the sun.” “So much the worse for the sun - be will be wrong, Monsieur.” And the servant put his watch into his pocket with a superb gesture. Some moments later. Fix said, “You left London ii a great hurry ?” “I should think so. Last Wednesday at nine o’clock in the evening, contrary to all his usual habits, Mr. Fogg returned from the Club—At teu o clock we left.” “But where does youi master go then ?” “Always before him. He makes the tour of the world.” “The tour of the world?” “Yes—iu eighty days. A bet be said—but betweeu you aud me 1 do not believe it—it is not common sense—there must be something else.” “Ah! he is an original then, this Mr Fogg?” “I believe so.” “Is he rich ?’’ “Evidently- and he carries a handsome sum with him in bank notes, and he doe's not spare the money on the way. Hold! he has promised the engineer of the Mongolia a bo nus, if we arrive at Bombay in advance of time.” “And have you known your m jster a long time?” “No, I entered his service the very day we left.” One can easily imagine the effect of these answers upon a mind so excited as that of the detective. This sudden departure from London a short time after the theft—tin great sunt which he carried—his haste to ar rive in foreign countries—the pretext of an eccentric bet- all confirmed his suspicions. i Ce questioned the Frenchman, and found that the servant knew nothing of his master— that Mr. Fogg lived alone in London—that lie was rich, but knew nothing of the origin of his ftiture—that he was an impenetrable man, &c., &c. At the same time he learned for certaintv, that Phileas Fogg would uot land at Suez but went to Bombay. “Is it far to Bombay ?” asked Passepar tout. “Mo far that it will take twelve days at sea.” ■ “And where is Bombay?” “In India.” “In Asia?” “t If course.” “I must tell you—there is something which annoys me. It is my burner.” “What burner?” “My gas burner, which I forgot to extin guish, and whicli burns at my expense. Mind that! two shillings a day—more than I can earn.” Did Fix understand this affair of the gas? It is not probable. Arriving at the bazar, Fix lelt him to make his purchases, charging him not to miss the boat, and relumed im mediately to the Consul’s office. His cou jectures were verified. “Consul,” said he, “I have no doubt but that I hold my man. Ho passes himself as an eccentric who would make the tour of the world in eighty days.” “Then he I- sharp, and intends to return to London after lie has misled the police of the two continents.” “We shall see.” “But are you not mistaken?” asked attain the Consul. 6 “I am not mistaken.” “Then why does this thief wish to proTe Ins visit to buez by a visa?19 “Why ? I do not know, Consul; but listen to me, and in a few words be recounted the principal points of his conversation with the Frenchman. “AH the presumptions are against him surely. And what shall you do?” “Send a telegram to Loudon, with request to send me at once to Bombay a warrant— embark on board the Mongolia—fol.ow my man over to India and there, on Eu"lish ground, accost him politely—warrant in hand —the band ox his shoulder.” With these confident words, the agent took leave ol the Consul, went to thy Tele graph office and se the dispatch as we km w to the director of police In London. A quar ter ot an hour laler, light valise in hand, he embarked on the Mongolia, ami the boat under full steam, quickly passed into the waters of the Red Sea. [to b. continued,] MISCELLANEOUS.
