Six weeks had coma and gono eitico
tho cxporiencca of Dick as narrated in
my ,i8t chapter, and hero tvo tvoro in
the initUt of one of tho coldest nnd
tnest rigorous winters that had for
many years visited the American con
tinent, I ehall not attempt to hero
place upon record tho tabu'atcd statis
tics of tho weather bureau of thoso
times, but content myself, by saying
that at diiTorcnt times tho mercury
was o congealed as to lose its power
to indicate the truo condition of tho
t;mpiru(ure. Dut, with but fow ex
ceptions, the mails were kept in oper
ation and wo had boon all these weeks
in almost daily receipt of lottcrn, pa
love and gocd will from friends and kin
pcrs, magazine and other tokens of
drod back in tho States. My ilcar
mother had written mo regularly once
a week, while Dick's mother was to
him equally attentive. Thon, too, wo
had in some way linked our lives and
fortunes with the Gibsons, whoso re
union had been brought about under
Buch peculiar ireumstanccs as to ren
der tho history of that rc-unton al
most fictitious. It would seem froti
what wo had learnud of tho history of
the Gibsons, while spending the winter,
that they came of an aristocrat io stock
ia England, and that tho brother was
connected with tho fur trado in Can
adi and was a man of liberal educa
tion, a bachelor und quito wealthy,
Tho sister, as my readers may imagine
was soon placed in charge of her
brothci's liouso in tho elty, and was
already becoming an attraction in the
society of the better class, by whom
sno was approximately surrounded,
I shall always thank God for her hap
py escape from her villainous captors,
and ascribe to Dick tho instrumental
ity of that dclivcranco. About tho
time of which I am now writing, I
received a letter from my mother
which I hero transcribe to tho end
that my readers may judge of the
whole matter thotoin dimly outlined,
but which proved to bo prophctio of
ono of tho most stirring episodes.
Hero is tho letter; "Dear Dill. I
have had anothor strango experience,
or drcuiiJ, uh father calls it, and so
deeply impressed am J that something
uusual will occur wherein my boy
must play a part, that I shull bo held
in su&pcnso uutil after tho mysteries
therein portended shull have bcon de
veloped. In my droam(?) I beheld
two men standing upon an elevated
picco of ground near tho cdge'of a for
est, with revolvers in their hands aim
ing straight at each other. They re
mained in this position for a moment
or two, when I behold a young ludy
coming as swiftly as tho wind from a
point south of where tho gentlemen
stood, and at tho came moment my
own dear boy doting in from tho
north. I could not distinguish tho
sound of a void, but could seo tho
lips of tho g'rl moving us if she wero
remonstrating with tho two enemies
who stood firm and, scomingly waiting
for the signal to firo, Just then their
weapons wero di charged h multaucous,
and as a result ono of them fell to tho
ground. Hero I oanie out of tho re
verie, enly to find mvsolf sitting ut
tho desk, with pou in hand, whoro I
had been writing to a coubin in New
York, Dut my dear boy, I feel cer
tain that sometimes out 01 tho com

wrtyjas&ociated with thu matter. Do,

hopo at that time to bo able to write
you a good, long letter giving you all
tho nows." I must confess that I be
gan to feel n sort of superstition tak
ing possession of my mind snoh as I
had thought impossiblo to over find a
Dut after canvassing tho ground
with Dick, I attributed the dream as
resultant from tho duel which, months
age, had caused tho flight sf tho two
Kontuoky boys from their sunny hoaics
to this land of snow and frost and icr,
About tho time of which I am now
writing. Dick conceived tho idea of
going on a flying trip to Ohio to tco
his betrothed, and go ho would, and go
ho did, dcsplto my most earnest pro
testations. Ono evening hu excused
himsolf fur a littlo while, saying that
ho must mcot a friend at ono of tho
hotoli,Qbut thnt.ha would return is a
very short time Ho had been gono
perhaps for somo twenty minutes,
when I hoard a rap on tho door, I
opened tho door, and as I did so was
confronted by a till, lino appearing
gentleman, with tho collar of his coat
turned up, a fur cap jauntily covoting
a head of flowing black hair, whilo his
full board seemed to harmouizo with
furs and huir. The stringer's en
quired after Mr. Nailor, raying that ho
had had an appointment with him, but
it being past tho hour for their mcot
ing he had taken tho liberty to call at
seated the stranger, and wo wero
soon chatting pleasantly as strangers
would, wlioso mutuality centered on
their nbiJtit friend. I began to
grow impatient at Diek's dolay, whon
to my supriso tho stranger remarked
that Mr. Mailer had taken him into
his confidence with relation to his in
tended journey to Ohio. I felt almost
indignant over this discovory and ex
pressed my dipapprobation of such an
advcnluro, when to my surprise tho
stranger advocated Mr, Nailer's in
tentions in tho warmest tonus. I felt
the blood crawling up into my tem
ples, and was just on the point ot re
monstrating, fthen, all of a suddon, the
cap, and hair, and beard were, with a
slight inovementof tho hand, displaced
and there sat Dick in all his manly
beauty. "Yes, Dick old fellow" said
I, "You aro a star of tho lirdt magni
tude, aud bavo my consent to go up
on yeur journey."
Early next morning Dick took his
leave, aud was booh speeding awa)
towards the borne of the good quakers,
while I busied injnelf with thoroutiuo
duties of iny office; I. prior to thu
time having beon placod'n ohirgo of
the circulation, list of tho "Old Do
m'niou" for both uppur and lower
Otnada. Diok was absent for somo
ten days; and the tra'n that brought
him back broight also a loiter from
my mother stating that the Hon. Mr.
Stewart, wlie was tho causo of our
flight from home, had fought anothor
duel, had mortally wounded his adver
sary; and that public sentiment had
turned to decidedly against him this
time as to necessitate his flight from
tho scene of ) is crime; that tho
tuthoriticH had declared their inten
t'toa to pursuo, evertako, and bring
him to condign punishment, and he
had doubtless gone boyond tho con
fines of tho United Slates; that it was
believed by his most intimate friends
that ' he had .traveled incognito to
New Orleans, and there taken a vessel
for tho Isle of Cuba,
We now began to sao tho day star
of our dclivcranco rising, We felt
that tho same pubiio sentiment that
had exiled us would now condone our
office, and that wo should toon bo bid
den to return to our homes. Dick at
least tried to take this view of tho
case, hopefully believing ibat thereby

ho should tho sooner lead to the altar

I, too, no doubt allowed tho desiro
to become father to the thought. But
we did entertain tho hope, not that
wo were outcasts, but becauso of our
paronts, our homes, our neighbors and
reputations. Fresh as ever oomee
now boforo our visions the old
plantations, our horses, and dogs, the
shady lanes, the fish pondi and the
Wo had by this timo become quite
intimato with tho Gibsons, spending
an evening with them as often as onoo
a week. We found both tho brother
and Bis'or to be possoised of raro in
telligence, and with cultured minds
such ns quiliflod them for the higher
walks of nooicty,
I shall always bolievo that Dick had
an uncxpretscd hope that Miss Gib-
ion, and 1 might uecotno more to
each other than tko mere friends wo
were, but at suoh was nat to be, lei
me dismiss that branch of the subject.
One extremely oold night, whilo wo
sat near tho b!a.'ng wood firo on tho
hearth, and while wo wero discussing
tho probabilities of our return to our
homes, wo were somowhat startled by
hearing loud successive raps upoa
our door; not as i omothing unpreci
dentcd, but becauso of the sharp, rap
id manner in which they fell.
Diok sprang to his feet, crossed
the room and openad the door.
There stood our landlord in com
pany with a littlo Frenchman, who
looked like a bundlo of fur about to
bo rolled into our apartment, but who,
on being invited to enter, came io,
aud, after removing his fur cap and
rolliag back thu ilecoy collar of bis
fur overcoat, drew from an inner pock
et a sealed nolo bearing tho inscrip
tion: "To Gcitleincn Willeughby

asked tho little Freiiuhtuna if an an
