"Ocoasioual," In writing about tbe gaming
kousos at tbe national canitol bays:
A gentleman well acquainted with tho se
crets of these resorts, tells me that he has
known as much as ten thousands) dollars to
be risked on a siugle game, and otherr hare
seen two or three thousand dollars hagurded
on a siugle car l, and in a single game, Tho
nosiciiianrc of bo players is startling.
They win or lose thousands without a tikh or
"Faro" in whioh the better encounters the
bank, is lie prevailing game in thete tiloout
and, although tables are set oat at which
what is oalled "brag," "poker," aud other
games are played, the principal fucinution is
tbe platform covered with green leather, be
hind which site tho imperturbable dealer,
with his paleface, black eye, aud tuonlouous
"call," whilo on three sides are gathered,
sitting and standing, rauk after rank, anxious
and exoittd spectators, who breathless with
anxiety watch the little cards as they are
dealt from tbe tin bos, aud pick up their gains )
or swallow their losses with a silence only
interrupted now and then by un angry ex
oluination or a quite chui H:c of exultation.
Night is turned into lueruing, and the latter
frequency surprises the contestants in the
struggle Occasionally a streak of luck befalls
an outsider, which, like a pni4 in a lottery,
becomes a sort of advertisement for thq gam
bler. I do not pretend to say that there is
fraud in these gamts, booatse it frequently
happens that there is as much skill among
the volunteers as there is in the principals of
the establishment, bt those whn have taken
pains to investigate the faots do net hesitate
teity that, unleri on extrao.-diuary occasions
the bank is sure to beat those whe attempt
to tuke up arms against it. Ho cautious bare
the keepers of these places became that they
are very careful as to whom they admit into
their saloons, aud it is to this camion that
the publio is Indebted for the preservation
of so many of those secrets whioh, if dis
closed, would undotsbtly result in great ex.

Mr. Crittenden, of Kentucky, was at one
time engaged in defending a man who had been
indicted for a oapitnl c.flenco. After tin elab
orate and powerful defenco, be clobod his
effort by the following striking allegory :
" When Qod in bis eternal counsel con
ceived the thought of man's creation, he call
ed to him the three ministers who wait con
stantly npon tbe throne Justice, Truth, and
Mercy, and thus addressed them j "Shall we
make man?" Then said Jubtice : '0, Go',
make bim not, for be will trample upon thy
taw." Troth made an answer also. "O, Qod
make him not, for he will polute thy eanctu
aries." But Merry drcpingdown upon her
knees, and looking up through her tears, ex
claimed, "O, God, make him I will watch
over bim with my care through all the tluik
pr.ths which he may have to treud." Then
God made mail and said to him, 'O, man, thou
art the child of Mercy, go deal wi'.h thy broth
er." the jury, wheu he fitished, wero drownod
in tears, and, ugaiaiBt evidence, end what
muut httvt! beou their own conviction, brought
in a vcrdiot of not guilty.

Tee oiilogics of Old Brown, by tho Aboli

roused up the conservative, Union-loving por

Dot duty, of doing something to couvinoe the
South that tho masses of the people have no
sympathy with the conspirators against their
peace una safety. Iu Beston, Vhiladelphia
and New Yoik, movements of this kind have
already been set in foot. Publio meetings
ure to be held irrespective ef party; and their
appears to be a disposition on the part of the
