During the year of 1847 the Wesi
was fl coded with a counterfeit coin. It
was so well manufactured that it passed
readily Tlu evil at last became to
grtat tuat the United Stales authorities
requested that a skillful detective might
be sent to ferret out the nest of coiners.
I was fixed upon u perforin that duty.
I had nothing to guide me. The fact,
however, that Chicago was the city where
the counterfeit cjiti was most aboundant,
led trie to suspect that the manufactory
was somewhere within its limits. It was
therefore, to the capital of the ' Wed
that I proceeded. I spent fi'e weeks in
the city without gaiuiug the slighesl clue
to the counterfeiters.
I began -to grow discouraged, and re
ally thought 1 should be-. obliged to re
turn home without having achieved at y
result. One day I received a letter from
my w.fe requesting me la send money.
as the was out of funds. I went to the
ank tind arktd tor a draft, at the tame
time handing a sum of money to pay for
it,m which there were several half dollars.
The rlerk pushed three of them back to
me. savins, "Counterfeit."
"What!" said I, "you don't mean to
tell me those half dollars are counter
If it ' '
Are y;u certain ?'
Perfet:'!y certain. They are remark-
hI ly executtd.but are d-ifL-ient ia weight
See for yourself."
Aiid he placed one of thni in the bal
ance against a'geauias half dollar, and
the latter brought up the former.
Thisis-the best counterfeit coin I ev
er saw in my life.' I exclaimed, ex
amiriin? them closely. ''Is all the coun
terfeit money in circulatioa here of the
same character as this?"
"O dear, no." the clerk replied, "it is
not Bc-arlv so well done. These are the
rk of the famous New York counter-
feiter, Ned Willett. I know them well,
for I have' handled a great many in my
time. Here is seme- of the money that
is circulating here," he added, taking
half dollars from, a drawer. "You see
that the milling is not so well done as
Ned Willett's, although this is pretty
good too." '
" I compared the two and found that he!
was right. I supplied the place of he
three counterfeits with good coin, and re
turned the former to my pocket.
A few days after this I received in
formation which caused me to take a
journey to a small village about .thirty! ging raa ia after fcira
miles from Chicago. arrived there

think, it has e?er teen "ray lot to ..meet.
In ?nwer as to whether "I could have
a lodging there that night I noticed the
host gave a particular look at his wife,
and after some whispering, I was infor-
ytaA in the most ungracious manlier pos
sible that I could have a bed.
I have frequently in the course of my
life been obligheo to put up with wretch
ed accommoJation3,so I did not allow my
equanimity of temper to be destroyed by
the miserable sleeping apartments into
which I was ushered after I had finished
The chamber was of small size, and teen in the barn. I was aware that

simply a beg of straw thrown into one
corner of the room, without sheet or cov
f-ring cf any kind. This last fact, how-
evet, was not of much constquence, as
it was jin ratr end oppressively hot.
1 stood for more than an hour gazing
out of theopering which served for a
winow. Before me was an immense
prairie, the limits of which I could not
see. The tavern in which I had taktn
up my abode appeared to be isolated from
all other dwellings, and save the croak
of the tre-toad and the hunj,of the lo
cust, not a sound reached my ear. It
was a beautiful moonlight night, so bright

At last I began to grow: weary, and
throwing myself on my pallet 1 was socn
plunged iu deep slumber. How long I
lept I know not, but I was awakened
ly n dull sound, which resembled some
one hammering in the distance. I sup-
pose it was the peculiarity of the sound
which awoke me.for it was by no means
loud, but conveyed to me the idea of some
one etriking iron with a rauflbd hammer,
rose from my bed and went to the win-
dow. The moon was now in the west
ern horrizon, by which fact I knew that
it must be near morning. The sound II
have before referred to reached me
more, distinctly than when in the back!
part of the chamber. It appeared to
come from some outhouses which were
situated a hundred yards from the house.
Now I am naturally of aa inquiring

curiosity, and I felt an irrepressible de-

grew upon me with such intensity, that
I resolved to gratify it at auy price.
I put on my boots, the only article or
attire I had discarded and cautiously
opened the door cf my chamber and nois
elessly decended the ncketry staircase
A few steps brought me into the lower
apartment, which I found entirely de-
serted. 1 crept quietly to the window,
and unfasteuiug it without' making the
lightest noise, was soon in the moou-
Not a soul was visible,- but the sound I
have mentioned grew much more distinct
as I arprenched the place from whence
it proceed d. At last I found myself
before a long, low building, through the
crevices of which I could perceive a lu-
rid glare issuing. I stooped down and
ptened through the key hole, and to my
extreme surprise I saw half a dozen men,
with their coats oil anJ slesves up. per
forming a variety of strange occupations.
Sme were working at a forge, others
were superintending the cas" ingot mould-

of mining coin. In a moment the whole

Fortune favored me None cf the
