If Tsiou womb list not be free then come to me Imkea Johnson in Scribner the vision. Or. Murder will out. John Mac Oriald a Well known Iten Grant peddle had on a dreary Winter evening attended a rustic wedding merry making at the farm town of assent where among the fair damsels assembled he had contrived considerably to lighten his pack. No Oue observed him leave for a month afterwards nothing was heard of his movements. His absence excited no Surprise among the country people As it was supposed that he had gone to visit his relations lived in. Ross Shire. They however ignorant of his Ami seeing him Only at Distant intervals were of course not troubled at ins customary absence the peddle might have been away much longer before any suspicion could have been excited. But exactly four weeks alter the festivities at assent alarm servant passing a deep precipitous turn on the Mountain Road which being lies Between the farm town the c Psi Chan of assent observed by the imperfect Dawn Light a bundle float aug upon the top of Tiu water then unusually Low Clear. A rude Rait constructed with his Aid the neighbors dragged the corrupted body of a human being to Shore. Though much decomposed All who were present immediately recognized the body of the missing peddle. The clothes were the same which he had worn last seen but the pockets had been carefully turned out filled no thing of any value had been found on the Corpse. Notwithstanding these suspicious appearances the simple people Amon stones under which the property was concealed. They went together ultimately discovered the articles in ques Tion concealed under several Large stones which Macleod declared exactly resembled those impressed on his memory. Hero was an important tact to begin with property of the murdered Man found in the immediate proximity to Cameron s House. Next Day another link was obtained. A week or two pre Vious to his apprehension Cameron walked one Rainy morning to the other i Side of the Island got wet at a coun try inn obtained from the Landlady a pair of stockings leaving his own behind to lie dried. These were now produced alter some hesitation a Cotter s wife declared that from a peculiarity in the work she Coald depose that they were of her own making added that the Day before his disappearance the peddle had bought two pairs from her for his own use. That now produced was one of them the other was discovered in Cam Eron s House. A variety of similar circumstances gradually came out after considerable delay occasioned by the difficulty of the Case Cameron was brought to trial. The trial took Placo at Inverness. It lasted from ten o clock on the first morn Ingol the Assize till the same hour next consecutive hours during which time judge jury spectators sat uninterruptedly. The prime interest to the superstitious Highlander Lav in the mysterious fact of the vision ail the seer was an object of interest when he appeared in the witness Box. Lie suffered a severe Cross examination from the prisoners counsel without the substantial value of his evidence of Lector. No one who heard his examination could doubt that to was stating what was actual ally one could believe this of course was the object of the Examina Tion that he Himesh was the criminal or in any Way implicated. It was a protracted difficult Case of circumstantial evidence. The candles Gas was not used in those Days which had lighted them in their Vigil through the Long autumn night were extinguished the Sun was High n heaven when the jury re tamed to the court finding the prisoner guilty As labelled. The verdict Hud been recorded the sentence of death Pio bounced when Cameron who had pre served throughout the trial the most pro the it whom a murder had been committed concluded that the unfortunate a fallen accidentally into the Tarn. So con to witness that he was a tinned were they in this opinion that Uliey at once buried the body John Mac Donald the tragedy connected with him were in a fair Way of Bung forgot ten. The Parish minister however had accidentally Learned of the discovery he forthwith forwarded information to the proper authorities. The Scrill of the county the Public prosecutor immediately came Down to the i stuck commenced a searching i Vestiga Tiou. Under the guidance of John Cameron the was de to them by the minister As 3tf found composure Rose with to at i most solemnity calmness called Goe murdered Man the whose exertions the Success of the prosecution was mainly to be making his Way to his hotel through the exiled crowd when a message came to him Foni Cam Eron requesting to co him.

Coupled with the fact that the clothes had been plundered no reasonable Elemit could remain that a Museler had been committed. It was Well known in the is Lanel that a Macdonald who had Linel Cou Ide Raulo earned his Fortune on his Stock being unknown institutions to those primitive he said was committed on thu night of the a sent.

Is o one had any Traer it been seen with Macdona after he left assent no article of any kind could be identified his property. The search appeared Iru Tiess. Several murders however had been recently omitted in the Northern counties they had remained unpunished it was therefore a matter of much Public Impo Tunce that in tins Case an example be Maele. The Shevill out of lilt u inchoate materials the Ston established in Elten at a might Grae Wimily into a tour Roadside hotel in the Vicinity announced his determination to examine every resident in the Inland. During these investigations the sheriff was Iuva Ribic by Cameron Thio Tigh his acquaintance with the garlic Tongue mrs his knowledge of the inhabitants a great As an interpreter. One morning however the sheriff went Down to tin mation by any la Itury Way. The fact is Euriela. May problem for those who Are curious in chef logical mysteries. The murder had course been the main tonic of Inoru a on the Island for Many had no doubt become strongly impressed on Mcleod s imagination some Light link of 1 net a word or gesture probably existed Anil by pm net unlike the actual because a natural logical arrangement of the whole facts known or surmised at the time going pm with the Story to its close the dream Weild accent Spany the murderer at fur tie commission of Tho crime de pict his horror contrition his frantic desire to put away from him every Dence of the accursed de eel which Lav heavy on his soul. The place where he alone. Cameron being for the first time concealed the property was one that he would naturally of his own House indeed but not so far from it hut that the articles might easily be recovered after the first dread had been subdued. People who have disenchanted the unseen who consider a Man s muscle the Best part of him will probably explain tiie mystery in some such Way. The Light of common Day has become too Strong for the supernatural. Absent. During a desultory conversation the postmaster stated that soon Al Ter the Date of the murder he had Given a Haugh for a to 0 Bank of England not to a person who he did not think Shunil l have so much Money in his pos session. Who was this John Cameron the schoolmaster. Cameron was sent for was asked How he came to have the Money in question peremptorily denied any knowledge of the transaction. His statement though made without apparent embarrassment excited suspicion Aud he was arrested charged with the murder. Some time however 110 facts appeared to confirm the suspicion. Camer on s House which stood on a Hillside by itself was minutely searched but none of the peddle s property was found. I is sister who lived with him. Was evidently perfectly innocent. She was a Young pretty girl lot her station in life intelligent cultivated. When told of the charge she indignantly refused to believe that her brother was guilty in deep distress followed him to prison. One or two casual of which she proved of unhappy in on the trial. Even then How Ever though Well in were of tins fall effect of her answers she spoke fearlessly spartan like Hon esty meeting out her brother s doom. A fearful dilemma where even falsehood cannot to rigorously judged but where Stern rigid truth cannot be too highly esteemed a Noble High land heroine with her bloodless lips White tearless Honor to the gentle womanhood that is yet too Noble in its Mardenly honesty to toll to lie Cameron though unable to account satisfactorily Lor the Money was on the Point of being liberated when a Singu Lar incident occurred. A Workman Mcleod by name had on three successive occasions dreamed that he had seen Cam Eron follow Macdonald to the Waterside strike him a number of heavy blows with a Hammer Rifle his pack cast the body into the Tarn conceal the articles he had taken in a Cairn near his own House. Tho Story was soon bruised about Tho dreamer was brought before the sheriff. So Strong vivid he said was his recollection of the incidents of the dream that he could undertake to Point out to Tho cnmina.1 officer the exact poets letters. Ono of the Well marked Points about letter writing is that if is rarely those who Are their Best in society who area Loo the Best letter writers. To could name persons who never take tip a pen to write a Friend without making them selves twice As much of persons As they Are in conversation others again who never take up a pen without of facing themselves almost out reducing themselves to the ciphers which in society they certainly Are not. The differences we take to be the same As that Between persons who find recover themselves in Soli tide persons who find recover them selves in society. Charles Dickens be longed to neither class. He was As much of a person in society Ashe was in Solitude but oddly enough almost the same Man in both. But the highest class of correspondents Are much More when they write them when they speak. Arid in general you will find the Best of this class among retiring meditative poets such As Gray co Charles Charles Lamb too was a minor poet though More a humorist than a poet. The rhetorical like also Good letter write is but rather let Ter writers like Dickens men who make their letters the literal equivalents for their own presence rather than some thing of an entirely different Shade of influence. Nothing can be More Anas ing than Byron s correspondence but it conceals Byron the Man Ovon More completely than his poetry itself concealed him.
