In the third Rob Bery an upper window was entered by Means of a knife which forced Back the fastening and of Ciu Irso Quot allowed the Sash to be raised. So Rapi ily had the robberies occurred that the whole neighbourhood was alarmed. The police Hook their Heads and looked knowingly but did nothing and what was much to be lamented failed to find any clue to the robbers who they at the time asserted were evidently not regular cracks men. Affairs bad reached such a stage that we Ufa a to sleep with a revolver close to our Heads when we happened to have a Friend who came to stay with us a few Days. Liis Friend was an old Jungle Hunter and was an Jait at every artifice by which the animal creation might be captured. He was delighted with the idea of having an adventure with burglars Ard scorned the belief that they were More Tenn a match in cunning for even Bush Hunter. It was in vain that to assured him it was an axiom that an comply shed robber could effect an Entrance into any House and that instruments were used of such a nature As to Cut holes in doors without noise and in fact Quot that through roofs and skylights Down chimneys and up water spouts an accomplished burglar could easily enter the Best defended House in the kingdom. A a a our friends org Union was that a burglar was a Man on watch who took advantage of the asleep and unsuspecting a a but a said he let my suspicions be raised and i will defy any burglar to enter my House without my having Dib warning because although i May be asleep still i hear his approach and can then make my arrangements to Welcome although we were not desirous of having our House robbed yet we wished much that our friends Confidence should be taken out of him. A few Days after this Coli very action the police informed us that several suspicious characters had been seen about and recommend cd us to be on tho Alert. Here then was a Good Opportunity to te3t my friends and wakefulness so having informed him of the policeman a warning i asked him if he Felt confident to undertake the defense of the House. 44 certainly a he replied 441 Only demand a dark lantern and stipulate that you. Have it pair of go Josheff beside your bed. I also must go to bad last and to servant is to go Down stairs before me in the morning nor is any one to walk about during the night then i will defy the thu it was agreed that my Friend was to the part of guardian and was to commence his charge on the ensuing nights had passed and no alarms had occurred and no robberies place we began to to link our alarms had been. Groundless but our Friend sold that now was the time to he most guarded for that no Wise burglar would Rob them when to was expected besides he said that to have not had a Windy night yet it is when doors and windows rumbled that robberies Are Best effected thus lie said he did not give up Hopes of yet having something to say to the robbers before his visit terminated. I usually sleep very lightly and therefore awoke readily on hearing a tap at my bed room . During the fourth night of our watch it was my Friot Dos voice that answered to and we were requested to come out at once. 41 As soon a i strike a Lucifer match a i replied. A nonsense Man a Light will spoil tho whole thing. Come in the dark slip on a dressing gown and your galoshes and come at once a i was soon provided Asho wished and ready to descend the stairs in the dark. A a a now remember a said a Friend 44 there Are seven Steps to Tjie first Landing twelve others afterwards so be careful to do aced without night was boisterous and Many a window and door Shook and rattled so that tho slight noise to made in descending the stairs was not sufficient to have alarmed even the most keen eared listener. Ave descended to the ground floor entered the pantry and then standing perfectly still devoted ourselves to listening. In a very few seconds we heard a grating noise on the shutter then an interval of quiet and again a noise presently tho window was lightly raised and again All was tho noise of a heavy vehicle passing tho House seemed to Opportunity for a More decided Effort for while the rattle of tho wheels was loudest a crack sounded from the shutter and we could hear that the Bolt was forced for the shutter wan gently moved. A 4�?~ Don to stir till i do and hold pour breath if possible a whispered my Friend in my ear. I found the latter a difficult request to comply with for my heart War beating with rapidity and thumping against my ribs in the most excited Way still la Stock quiet and trusted to my could to More cautious than tho proceedings of the robbers. The shutter was pushed Back in tho most slow and steady manner. Had there been even a Bell fastened to it i doubt whether it would have been made to ring. At intervals there was a rest from work evidently for the purpose of listening and then Ono of the robbers placed his leg across the window Sill and lightly descended into the pantry. Tho night even out of doors was vory dark and in the Corner where to stood it was Blick As Erebus. Our forms therefore were quite undistingu�8hable, and tho Only Chance of discovering us was by touching or bearing us. Tho first burglar was soon followed by a scion 1, while to could hear that a third who was a outside was to Leniu there on watch. A a now lets Light up a said number two. Not yet till you push tho shutter to a replied tho other a for the Glim la be then you come and hold the the.-\8liuttcr was quietly pushed to and both robbers moved Ziway a few paces from the window by which they entered. By tho quiet Way in which they walked it was evident they were either without shoes or had India rubber coverings. Of their size and weapons we could see nothing and i began to doubt whether our position was an agreeable one As i was armed Only with a sword a weapon however i know Luw to use while of my friends Means of defence i knew nothing. 1 had not Long to wait for a Lucifer was struck by Ono of the men immediately and the room consequently lighted up at tho same instant my Friend Drew up the Side of his dark lantern Aad flashed the Light in tho faces of tho two men at tho same time showing the muzzle of a revolver pointed toward them. A 4 if either of you move ill put a couple of bullets in him a said my Friend As he placed his Buck against tho Vii Udor by which tho a men had entered. A now drop that Crow bar a he continued in a voice of authority a Down with it and you he said to me 4 pull open tho shutter and shout for the the idea usually entertained of a burglar is that he is a Man of great size strength and daring and that he would in an encounter annihilate any moderate Man. When then the Light revealed the faces and the form9, of the Nien to had captured our Humble self although no Groat pugilist yet Felt Able to defeat either of them if it came fit a matter of fists and i must own that the Pale and astonished faces of the men were not indicative of any very great courage. Our shout for police was shortly answered and the burglars having been subdued by the sight of the revolver the muzzle of which pointed first at one and then at the other were captured by tho police three of whom were speedily on the spot and conveyed to the lock up whilst to and a detective who had been brought Down from London some Days previously examined the details by which the burglars had effected ten Entrance. A you were very Lucky to hear them especially on such a night a said tho detective 4. When once they re in they move like mice. We know them Ana i expect get seven the Man was about Correct for one the older offender was sentenced to six tho other to five years penal servitude. 4 it will i suppose be of no use trying to sleep again to night for its three of clock a said my Friend. I cannot sleep a was my reply 4 and i am dying to hear How you found out. That these men were approaching tho being then of one mind we partly Robed ourselves lighted a fire in the kit chert Ana soon being provided with Segars and grog got very cosh portable and satisfied with our work. My Friend then began his account which he gave much in the following words the burglar As i told you Lias usually the advantage of Surprise be can select the time at which to makes his attack and if his proceedings Are carried on cautiously he enters a House before he is heard. Few men would however venture Todo so unless they previously had Good information us to tho Interior arrangements of tho House this they obtain either from the servants tradesmen or some one who visits the locality or Thoy come themselves As tramps or with some Tri to sell. Thus if there Are Bells attached to the doors or windows they find it out and they know tolerably Well the Domestic arrangements of the locality they propose trying their skill upon. There Are too conventional methods of protecting a House such As bolts bars chains locks &c., All of which require merely time and proper instruments to it overcome. It therefore occurred to me that Novelty and simplicity combined would be More than a match for the coarse intellect of the burglar and thus i made my plans which you Seo answered very 4 no doubt about that a we replied. Avell now come up to my room a he continued 4 and Seo the we entered his room and there close beside Liis Pillow was a tin Box in tho Bottom of which was a key. 4this is nearly All the Apa Ratas to said 1 but you notice some thread fastened to the key. Trace that thread and you will find it passes through that Small Hole in the Sash. From there it goes Down to the Back Yard and now you will comprehend rav plan. A knew that no Man could approach the Back part of the House without walking up the Back Yard which is Only four Yards wide. I a therefore tied across tho backyard and about two feet from the ground some Fine Black thread. This web aide fast on tho one Side but slipped through a Loop and Ltd up to my window on tho other. The thread then passed the Halo thud by re in the wins then made fast to this key. Under tho placed the tin Box you see and Over tho key was a bar to prevent its be ing dragged up More than six inches each night before i wont to bed i just Drew the string tight and fastened it in the Yard taking care to free it before morning so is to keep tho plan a secret. If then a Mno or anything above two feet High walked Nuj the Yard the string was pressed against the key was drawn up sharply against the bar and the string broken when tho key of col so fell into tho tin , making quite noise enough to Wake to immediately after the string or thread broke it would fall to tho ground and the person who Hud done this would not have Felt anything the resistance being so slight. I must own i should have preferred Horae hair to thread but a9 it was the o latter answered very y Oll. I was fast asleep when the key fell but immediately awoke and taking my inn Tern outside my door lighted it and Caine to yours a for i knew that a Man Only in tho Back Yard could have dropped my key so now you see How tho burglars were trapped for you know nil�?�. 44 certainly you succeeded and so we ought not to be Quot critical we replied a a but suppose they had entered by the front win Dow instead of by the Back How then a see this thread who said grasping one that was near tho door pull i did so and immediately a tin cup dropped into the hand Basin. 41 that thread goes Down stairs and is fastened across the front window but i broke that off As i went out of my room so that it should not impede my journey Down stairs. Thus i could at once know whether a Man was approaching the Back door or had entered by the font window and in either Case i think 1 could have captured simplicity Lin d certainly been adopted in tho present Case but the Means had shown themselves to be efficient. _ a a people Are usually very silly a continued our Friend a a alien they hear or think they hear suspicious noises of a night. The first thing they usually do is to Light a Candle which proclaims to the robber that to has been Hoard and must is sup then they go about the House with this in nolo and make a great noise so that a Man May have plenty of time to get away or to hide instead of this if a person were to listen intently to would to Ablow to hear any suspicious noises distinctly and decide upon their cause then is he must know his own House better than a robber he is the Best off of the two in the dark and when after arming himself he has quietly opened his door to May wait and listen until to to robbers Are heard moving around when lie May take such Steps As May seem necessary if every person were merely to plan what was to be done in Case of robbers entering tho House and then were to carry out this if tho occasion required it burglary would to too dangerous and unsuccessful a proceeding to be popular or profitable and thus might be Given up for More honest moans of obtaining a livelihood so that really we May consider ourselves Dono the Community at Large a Benefit when we captured Ono of these gent a whilst those who allow their be robbed with impunity jeopardize their neighbors property.

I am unable to say How Many died yesterday. The number is stated variously from 1,000 to 2,500. Tho newspapers still continue to lie. 44 August 7, the first time today i begin to feel a Little alarmed the we Thor continues intensely close. I am almost prostrate with debility bilious Ness and indices Gestin. A stink from tho imperfectly buried corpses in the adjoining cemetery blows through every room in the House.

Dead and dying men pass every halt hour. 4 nothing Buti songs of death a nothing but funerals priest Sisters of Charity processions and news of fresh losses among our English Community. A a August 8.�?i have Learned Moro details about last Friday. By the Tosti Mory of every one it must have been an awful Day. A doctor who practices on tho other Side of Stamboul Bays that 1 500 to 2,000 died at Sui Ghoul al me on that Day. For Days past indeed Stamboul Lias presented a frightful spectacle. The streets to says stink with decaying bodies. Whole families Are carried off at once and Many Are abandoned by the selfish terror of their relatives when timely assistance might have saved them s a sort of attempt 1ms, it is True been made for the Relief of the sufferers a Hospital has been rudely constructed at Stamboul of raised boards on which the poor patients a re hastily thrown and left to die without doctors without Medicine without even a Friendly hand to assist them. The houses of some or these poor wretches at Stamboul Are even worse than might have been expected. Dens morn foul could scarcely have been found in st Giles 15 years ago. Imagine a room half the size of one in an Ordinary cottage lighted by a door Only and ventilated by a crack which lots in air poisoned by an opon sewer running without exit in front of the imagine from five to fifteen people huddled together in this room the Walls of which Are decaying with lamp and their cracks stopped up with Mouldy rags and then fancy that the same Linen and the same Bod which two months ago supported a patient affected with typhus is now used for a sufferer with Cholo a. Add to this the stench which proceeds from people who Are not Over cleanly at the Best of times and whose dirty habits Are now aggravated by disease and exhaustion and you will have a picture of Tiff inside of a turkish House of the poorer class. Can you wonder at tho disease haying spread so frightfully ? 44 August 91�?gurracino, tho vice Consul has been visiting the sick at therapia. He found fifty of the houses deserted Ecith dead bodies inside. There its Little doubt that the malady is aggravated to a fearful extent by ignorance and imprudence. T will give you an example which occurred under my own eyes. The Day before yesterday a consular canvass had a longing for some raw tomatoes. % were Nons Erise a said he 4 if the soul Longs for anything it is not a sin to he ate them and was attacked with cholera.1 prompt attendance cured him and i think also it will have cured him for the future of his religious scruples. A gentleman who had been Hunting up tho sick at Stamboul tells to that he went to a Kahn and asked tho Porter if there were any sick inside. 4 4 you Are not telling the truth a Olet in o in to he went in Aud the first thing Hosa v was a Man in the last extremity who Lead not received the least attention. To went to another House when the master informed him that Liis son had just died. A what did you do a said the gentleman. 4 Well a said tho father 4 he ouly had a slight dear Rhea at first. He was Only seized with 20 attacks in the Day so i Gaye him a Glass of cold water after each an armenian in English employment had a slight attack of cholera from which he recovered the next Day he bought two pounds and a half of unripe pears and sat with his feet in cold water an hour while to Date them. I Havo been vory ill indeed so a Young Friend of mine hns kindly copied my notes to Send you. I fell Down in a fainting fit and afterwards had typhoid fever. Trio doctor recommends my instant return. The cholera is going away 50,000 to 80,000 Havo not a soul col. A. W. Ii. Davis crashes the slanderers. Doyle stops penna., 1 sept. 16, 1805. F editors of the age a my attention Lins been colled to tho following article published in. The press of your pity of tho 15 the inst., Viz the Harrisburg Telegraph says colonel j w ii. Davis tho Copperhead candidate for auditor general has now resumed full charge of Quot tho Doylestown Democrat a newspaper which he has owned for Many years and which heretofore and now sympathizes with the rebels. The Peculiar Forte of the Democrat since colonel Davis Lias re turned to Presidio Over its columns consists in asserting that the rebels have not been whipped that they should he received Back to the Union with All their rights restored that slavery is not and can never to abolished and that in Justice to tho rebels the debt which they incurred in struggling for their a a rights is As Legal As the debt which was piled on tho people by the National authorities while waging a crusade on the people of the South and if the National debt is to Boj Aid so also must the debts of tho Southern states to liquidated. Mendacity cannot go beyond this. Ait Tomt is printed above is a stupendous me from beginning to end. I never thought uttered or advocated Buosi sentiments nor Over Thoy Over published in the Democrat a in a late Issue of the Harrisburg Telegraph Tomt paper also charges me with opposing tho amendment to tho Constitution giving sol doors tho right to Voto. This is As Baso a lie As the other. At tho time of the election i was at Danville suffering from a severe wound but made it my business to go to Doylestown to vote and voted for the amendment. Tho Bucks county of tho 9th of August 1sg4, said Gen. John Davis of Southampton and Liis son Oul. A. . Davis both Voied openly for the the Doylestown Democrat did not oppose tho amendment. Tho Bucks county , the Republican Organ of this county is tho Only newspaper in Bucks to my knowledge Flat Over opposed tho right of soldiers to vote. The following a Riclo is from Tomt paper of november 12 1861, Biz the state Law of Pennsylvania providing for tho holding of elections in military encampments though doubtless enacted with Good motives 1ms been productive of great evil and Contention. Until the october election there had never been an Opportunity of testing its operations Quot. Voting was then carried on in most of the Pennsylvania regiments at the seat of War or encamped elsewhere at a distance from Homo. In Manv oases tho votes were honestly received and counted and the result properly certified and returned to the Legal authorities. In tethers particularly in the regiments partly or Whol w in my Fri i. A Werc conducted in a most shameful and rascally manner. Some of the. Regimental returns show hundreds of votes for candidates on one ticket while those of opposite politics receive few or none. As tho result in tho City itself was doubtful and the candidates wore Likely to be elected or Defeated by the army vote there were Strong inducements offered for corrupt politicians to practice their villainous arts. It now seems probably that the difficulties thus raised will have to by settled by the courts at the Cost of and much time. Ivo Hope the legislature will prevent such evil in future by the total abolition of elections in Camp. I cannot account for tho malignant hostility of tho editor of the Harrisburg Telegraph toward me except because my Grandfather was one of the soldiers that captured the hessians at Trenton in 1770.
