I was visiting at my grandfathers when a Little boy a Long time it was 1 think three or four years after the mesh Ohrablo but Trio of Waterloo. To armies then stationed in the towns and villages of Tho Interior of Ireland were not yet disbanded. A great Goraber of the yeomanry Weto still under arms the country was nov cd disturbed Farmers burdened with enormous taxation Law partially administered Orange Isth rampant robbery outrage and Vagabond ii if Tho dark Cost die were matters of almost Emoiy a it of Currance. My Grandfather was reputed Rich one of thebe Irish Farmers , in a yid circumstances. His comfortable a goodly looking mansion of the cottage order of that Day. Substantially built on the Roadside one mile from or mohair in the hospitable county of Lei Trifi. A be old gentleman was at the time of to hic t write about eighty years of age yet sturdy and Active for a person so far advanced in life. His Consort who As hot my grandmother but his wife by second marriage was a a Early Twenty years younger than be. She was in personal appearance anything but a pleasing woman to look on and was besides cursed with a sour temper always unhappy sulky and dissatisfied. very disagreeable was she to the children of less first wife that Seldom any of them could be induced j to visit the old family mansion or end i Duro to Call her oven by Tho cold icy i appellation of Stepmother. Yet i i strange to say i believe she liked me i in some queer kind of Way Peculiar a to herself though i tittl Sec confess to 1 my shame that he cold partiality i a was never duly reciprocated. J a besides the old couple the other in Quot tes of the cottage consisted of d Middle aged Mario Many years servitude and a Young girl brought i up in the family almost from infancy j it was in the latter end of sep Tern j ber. A dark cold Windy night about �?�11 o clock the old. Man and his wife a had retired to , a sleep-1 i ing too Motif the parlor Tho hired a amp Arfi amp kept to 4rigtfunk-on the Garret j i and in a Short Turae was sound asleep j i the girl and i wire still up at the i Kitchen Firo Teri ring stories of fairies a goblins King 8 sons and daughters of j Good old Ireland in Happy Days Gono j j by. She was Ai Fine fat bouncing i Young blonde tf1 about Twenty two i Summers full of. Good humor Irish j wit and vivacity honest and Faitha Ful to her old guardian devoted to a her religion and 1 really believe As j virtuous As a Vestal of the Golden i age. I was at the time eight or Nev years of age a i Little slim spindle shacked while headed 0ahby kind of codger fond of list ening to tales of to e marvellous and a Swinny Yossif fled an inexhaustible i fund of that kind of love and had a most fascinating Way of telling her j i stones it was Only natural to suppose the t i Kofod the girl Anil at the time preferred her society to that of any i other living being on the face of the Earth. A. The girls bed stood in a Small closet off the Kitchen fire a kind of convenient sleeping place called a Pouch in farm Bouses of that Day a and As i never had up to Thra me slept alone and could not endure the idea of lying either with the old of to fable or the hired Man it was not thought mde Corob m virtuous old Ireland that a Graffer of my age. Should sleep with maid providing Tho fair Damsel herself should have no objection. Winny Hadnot , neither had i and accordingly at about half past eleven of clock to found our solves in the warm Pouch bed the to fire raked and the lights extinguished. A it might Stavft pen half an hour after we retired when a gentle rap was heard at the front door. A t a who a there v asked the girl with amp bind of tremulous voice giving to at the 8 a Nie time so slight nudge with her Elbow to an est my attention. A a Friend inny open the door a was the reply from rather a genteel voice outside v. A i can to till i know who you Are a and what a you business spoke the girl sitting up in fhe bed and commencing to dress herself. A make no fuss Winny a said the voice a done to Wake Tho. Old Man a Colleen i Only want to hand in this Story Book to Tho Little boy. It was Leht to him in troth it la make him lab Gli til the buttons Fly off Bis jacket. Hero take it out of my hand and done to keep me standing w Tho cold All night a. A the girl still hesitated but the temptation of a Story Book and one so funny was Moro than a Little boy fond Otbo marvellous could i kicked off the Blanket leaped out of Bod and in two Springs was at the front door Drew Back the Bolt removed Tho Cross bars and swung the heavy door full open. But horror of horrors instead of the smooth tongued bearer of a funny Story Book in marched six or eight huge Fellows wit Hudsin their he ads anti faces blackened the Foremost of Tho villains stroked me on the head called me a Good boy bid me not fear and taking me up in Bis left band As if i had been a Young Kitten Laid me Back in the bed and bomb handed me to cover up gave alarm. Winny she was bound Nana and foot Blind folded and evil to a Cejp me company the Man on the Garret was similarly dealt with after receiving a crack from the butt end of a Musket that nearly fractured the poor fellow s Skull. A. 4 one scoundrel stood Sentinel at the door with fixed Bayonet. Another in the Centre of the floor with cocked Musket threatened to shoot the Host to utter a syllable. Two others went into the old gentleman s room White two More commenced to ransack the House for Booty. Everything valuable that could be borne away was yarn Linen Bacon Quot butter Bod covering and wearing apparel Vebe stuffed into sacks brought for the purpose and piled on a cart in waiting at the door the old gentleman was then lifted pm. Of bed blindfolded placed in an Arm chair in front of the Kitchen fire. His wife was served in the same manner. He was thou commanded to give up his Money on pain of being boasted a i have no Money in the House gentlemen a said Ray Grandfather a except ten pounds which you will find there in the till of my a a that a a lie. For you old dives a spoke the Leader. A whereas the 100 guineas your wife there arid. The Mother of the Little boy in the bed took out of the Feather pallet Day before yesterday and hid by your order in some safer place continued the robber giving the old Man a rude Shako that nearly jostled him out of his seat. To such thing Sih a said my grand father a i can safely swear on the Bible. There is not a Copper under this roof at the present except the ten pounds already la your hand lies some place Felse out of doors then a answered Tho villain a give is the whereabouts or take the Valuo in Good sound roasting. A you would hot be to barbarous As to roast a Post old Mart of eighty re plied Tny , appealing to the humanity Ofa scoundrel who had no mole of a feeling than a Tiger of Tho Jungle a a would t i indeed a answered the Leader with another shake and rude laugh which evinced his determination to carry the wicked threat into execution a keep us five minutes Long Erin waiting and May i be if i done to roast your old bide on that fire like a Salt herring a i have no Gold or Silver either within or without the House finally replied Tbs bid Man a whatever treatment you give me.�?T. A Down with his drapers off with his flesh reared the miscreant and suiting Tho action to the command the poor old gentleman was stripped naked to his Rivaist. Lifted Between four of the scoundrels and Laid 6ft the burning embers of the Bot turf fire raked out for the purpose. His shrieks were terrific the Wolfl tto Toan dropped of into. A fit the girl Crest find at the Fop of her voice Tbs robbers All gathered round the Firo Tbs sentry left his Post at the door and dashed Ftp the ladder to bet tie accounts with the Man on the Garret whose lastly yells were bidding fair to gather Tho whole Parish around the House. In the confusion a worst confounded that ensued i found a Chance to Blip out in Bare Buff order As i was. Outside the door i stumbled on the Sentinel s gun which in the hurry of his flight up to Tho Garrot head forgotten. I ran Cross lots with the Forelock in my band and when about Twenty rods from the House i cocked and discharged it. The recoil of the piece knocked me Down but Minuto in was Able to Rise and heart the whole brigade of Cut throats flying in wild confusion Over the Hill in the dire ton of Droman in in. The report of the gun alarmed them and supposing 1 presume that an armed Force was in Pursuit they precipitately fled leaving the Borso and cart at a the door with All their Booty and firearms. A when i entered Tho House i found Marij of the neighbors before the old Man Wahy until a and care for. Next morning All the Genho men of the county with the authorities and doctors were Gasser ii bled.

Having heard of a Beautiful City called Prosperity which was built for freemen and which Mydy compan yes before had failed to fully reach on account of despots and Cravei Kings which opposed. And death and disease from the pestilential Miasma of old rotting dynasties there being nothing of the latter in this new and Beautiful country and Only one of to former who pretended to claim any right to oppose this company of Brave men. Boldly undertook the work and after Many hard conflicts with this old King George finally one headed him. Though after great sacrifice of Many valuable lives and the expenditure of Meh Money.

At last the old Engineer retired baying served the company Long and Well. A new Engineer was then appointed one John Adams by name. He not prove so capable As the first. The passengers were somewhat alarmed at one or two daring sex peril cents which be made. But by the uproar of the contrivances which he put on the machine were removed As it was feared they would cause it to run off the the company appointed another Engineer Thomas Jefferson a his Dame. This Man proved himself an admirable Engineer and was fully acquainted w Ith the Road. I find my Story is Long said fearing i May weary Yon a sadly lil Benny �?�1 w ill not follow the history of All Ibe engineers who so successfully run the train but suffice it to say though they differed somewhat in their style of doing things still All things went Well most of the time.
