I waa-gQÍng.on a V^tem_ttip tp.buy  é^^rain for Wiggins & Co. and had i>C' casion to stop over a day to settle np a matter of business with one of the firm's correspondents. Instead of choking myself for- twenty minutes at a railway eating house, I walked over to the Globe Hotel and ordered supper. My only companion at table was a dashing woman of say thirty-five, got up very much in theCaliforni.a gr.isa widow stylo, who had arrived on the same train as myself, and who was lamenting the loss of her trunks. She stated "that sbe had arrived nt tlie Albany dqjot just as the train was starting, and too late to have them checked, and had left them on the platform,with promise fi'om the baggage-master tbat they should certainly be put on board and "chalkcd" for Syracuse.  The reader should not imagine, be-canse I gave the lady (She called her-.self the Widow Grey) such sympathy and advice as the circumstancos seemed to require, that "she was after niy own heart." Indeed, 1 don't know whoso heart slio was after, although the departedGrey had" evidently left a cavity in herí), that was not at all di: minished by the loss of three Saratoga tninliS,-and that she rr>igl)t reasonably expect to have Oiled at some time with the biirnishrd gold of a new flame. Mj-f.. Groy took comfort at my stated mcnt that the trunks were ceriainly i^omeivhere, and that she and tlie railroad company cb»nd~tclcgrap1reD¿?ry-lóhere for thern in the morning. With this assurance, and three citps of green tea. she seemed in a mea^e satrnffe^ and rctii-ed to licr mom, whore he port-mantpau had already been sent.  The Widow Grey was one of the tender sweetness, bordered with a miti;  ated melancholy, thatfii st touches the springs of pity and then runs over into the well of love; and it required no second glance to'show that®tho widow was no lady of culture and refinement; but I am always polite to the weaker vessel.'', no matter what the style of the hoops.' And here, let me suggest that the reader 'stick a pin' in these introductory paragraphs,as the widow is to fiii-nish the key for the unlocking of the secret of this veracious story.  ClIAPTER II.

"Rnshing on to death," nifty be very poetical, bat I bad rather net make it a double bare backed act.

Y-  r gabicrtptlcMH olsp, received by BanU« Bankers genenaiy throughout tUo United  ct.---: '  Nov. 15.1865, . ^  I heard a confused noise of shouting, up the street, and saw a pair of runaway horses tearing over the pavement^ and rapidly coming in my direction. I had but just'timo to see that the driver was offhis «;at, and tliat ladies were inr side, pale and frigbtened, when my resolution was made. Now, there is but one way for a single individual to attempt to stop a runaway team with any chance of success. If you stand in front, you areTTin over, for a fright ened horse sees nothing, and if-you at tempt to seize the reins, you are inevitably thrown io the earth liko a shot and stunned if not killed, without ac-comiiTishing ypur purpose, pitching' my coat at my customer's head, I plant^ ed myself a little to the right of the near wheeler and sprang at his mane as he dashed past with the intention of vaulting on his back. I caught the mim«;-; btitf sW'ijcfe-standards df the harness. For a mo  ceeiled in bringing their heads around ; but instead of stopping', they plunged upwards" until^^^êll~lT^mënitM5fonly a sort of dim shadowy consciousness of a crash as iM was being run over and trampled on by a drove of mustangs, each of which came at mo like a reversed battering ram and gave me a parting kick towards an abyss that I fell into, and,_whcre, instead of fulling, I floated slowly down into darkness and silence.  _ Chapter 11 [.  The ladies I had assisted were Mrs. Gildersoti and her daughter Ellen, They were of course terribly alarmed» but notât all injured, and their first thought was for my safety. Then the frightened animals and somewhat broken carriage were sent away to a livery stable, and a coach was obtained, into which I was carefully assisted,and with my fiead supported ' by Mrs. Gi^ derson, we were driven to her residence at Oakmount, about two miles distant from the Syracuse depot. I had hardly the ability to protest against this movement, even if I had desired to do so. The ladies Icrndly -8pared-4hoir thanks until I should be in a better condition to receive them; and after sending for their fiiiuily physician to follow them at once, devoted themselves to my comfort. If all my ror manee and powers of observation had not been pounded out of me,I suppose I should have noticcd that Oakmount was a cbíírmlñg placo—-that-tho porter's or rather the actual gardener's lodge was situated nearly half a mile from the house, and that ITie dri^ around the circular avenue was bordered by fine old forest forest trees and sweet-scented slirubs. I saw all these afterwards, however, and sufficiently admired the house upon its noble elevation—commanding a wide view of the adjacent country, and surrounded by the majestic old oaka that gave the place its name.  By the gardncr's assistance I was put to bed, and on Pr. Jalap's arrival, I was carefully examined. No bones were reported broken, And probably there were no severe interna! injuries; but rest and quiet for a few days were proiiounced indispensable., I spare the reader any description of the ner-vjous fever I hadj or my convalescence I was most tenderly cared for by Mrs. Gllderson and her daughtcr^and no mother or sister could have been kinder. ^-—  stranger saves yonc mariageahle daughter's life, don't let the aforesaid daughter dry-nurse him and boqnet him and poetize him, nnless yon wish to. adplpi him as a iton*in>law.

Mrs. Gilderson informed me tbat since the death of her husband, two years before, she bad lived a very retired life, whicli bad become so irksome to herself and Ellen, that she bad placed, her property in the hands of an ogent for sale. On that very afternoon I was surprised to see a carriage drive up to the door contain-ining tho Widow-Gray. She at . once recognised and accosted me. _ "Oh ! Mr. Duncan," said flbn, calling me by name, "you had a terrible accident, but how fortunate you were in being the means, under Providence, of saving two such precious lives. Who can doubt that there is ' a beneficent Deity who watches over even the Bparronrs.^' And hero ..the Widow rolled up her eyes towaM the heavens in a manner tbat was intended ta be most devout. Then turning to Mrs. Gilderson, she continued—  "Madam, I am informed by a real-estate" agent" in" Syracuse^" that^ou have been so overwhelmed by grief at the loss of yonr husband that you desire to remove from a scene tbat must constantly awakcm the most painful mpmorics, and that, in iact, you _have offered Oakmount for sale. It is a charming spot." ^  Mrs Gilderson replied that Oakr  July was nnable to leave her room, which was on the opposite side of a wide hall. Wo had no one with ns but kind domestics—~kind nurses. Onr good physician, Dr. Jalap, had made his final call for the nig^. at sunset, and had left certain 'mi^icines to be taken by me every two honrs. I had passed the crisis of the fever, but was so weak as to be utterly unable to rise, and scarcely to move my hands. The night was dark and warm, and all the house waa clos&d» and, jss we supposed securely fastened. It was just after twelve o'clock, my nurse was doz ing in an arm chair at my side, while I. was hovering between dreamland and languid conciousness, when I waa suddenly aronsed by a click in the lock of my door. Why my nurse hiid locked and bolted it on that particular night is more than I know. It was usualiy left wide open, so that my mother and myself could speak to one another; but rumors of burglaries had recently been rife, and the nurse doubtless took these precantions- in conse« qiiiencd^.........  llima^mM'lilii't  tío»of ikÊ^mi êtf  mamtìmi^r^w^i^  » mw Mis» (ù»  tiáoofihe Uiilft porlör littlawBtr Ir^ WIlpt.giMiáÉA  remainder of tho night Um ineideatt tMr moveatata).

I, too, bavo lost a most devoted husband (and hero the widow placed her handkerchief to. her eyes and sobbed audibly) Ho left me a large fortune aiid a lovely hoine, but that is no compensation for his loss.  Although my own Rosedalc contains everything necessa^ to make othen happy, it can no longer be a home for mo; beside, the sea-air of Rosedale affected my throat unfavorably, and I have decided to remove into thw—in^ terior, hoping- to find some relief from my settled melancholy among new scenes and associations." (Here the widow again raised the white flag, and gave another sob.y Then turning to me she continued: "I think it was almost fortunate that I lost my tranks (and, by the way, they have not been found yet), for that circumstaftce may lead me to make this channing part  How shall I describe the horrors that followed I I was instantly wide awake, and folly aware that the mysterious gang of robbers whose depredations had alarmed the entire region, had selected onr house and home as .the place for a dark night's work.
