land is Ijq the embodiment of n vn.t nmount of
the very best quallly of niillirucllo coal, ImvlliK
every facility tlmt coulil bo denlred for tram
portatlpn In nil direction!. The nlmvo tract Ik
crooned by a gmjd rond, and alio directly Id
front, and Joining are the Ijicknwniina ,tni(m,
burg rullrnnd, and tho Wyoming canal, thin of
fording tho very 1msI nd vantage of u currying road
and canal running to tho very mould of the
mines m Ithout excuse to the company,
Tho measurement of tho dlflcrentbtHN or yearns
already developed was carefully obtnlned and
added together! tho thickness of theso wains,
Including tho eelcbruteil "lied Ash," "lluck Moun.
tain," or "Orand Tunnel" vein, Is thlrty.one anil
a half feet, (31J), every cubic yard of which will
yield a (on, giving a largo amount of Iho best
quality of coal.
Tholocntln Is such that all the veins may l,c
cut and worked to the greatest possible ndtantngo
alHive water level, and nt much less expense than
can lo done from collerles oH'lHtlng below water
Tho con! can be brought to the surf.ico through
drifts or tunnels which drain thewntcr from tin
mines and snves the lioljtlng nf the coal. Ho the
eligibility of Micro hinds for cheap mining Is un
questionable. Very lately the "Omnd Tunnel"
or "lied Ash" vein has been opened, and Is now
producing as flue a quallly of eonl as has ever
been produced In the nnthruclto regions. The
breaker now In operation Is cnpnble of prejurUg
from VA to SX) tons per day. Thosurfacecnntulns
an abundant supply of wood nnd timber very vul.
liable fur mining purposes, which gives the tract
the advantage of many other conl hinds. Tho
fuel that almost all valuable coal lauds are being
rapidly taken np by heavy capitalists or large cor
porations, ebows llint they must steadily and
greatly rise In the market value, while with tho
Immense and constuntl' Increasing demand for
this coal, and thu llntlrond and North Ilrnnch ca

the Great Iron making districts of IUooinsburg,

do dr&ce, i,nft enu scarcely conceive of n more
profitable or permanent source of wealth than
may be round in lands like these.
In order to bo able to open their works on a
moie extensive plan, this company has placed a

In consequence of tho peculiar oppor
tunities which I enjoyed, I soon discov
ered that Wolstang, whom I had long
thought rather hrghlyof, was in reality
a very bail character. Somo persons of
tho worst description In (iottlngcn ap
peared to have been his aoeiates.
Times without number 1 was accosted
as an acquaintance by gamblers, pick
pockets, and usurers; mid through their
means I unravelled it train of impo
ture, prolllgaey, and dissipation, iu
which ho hail been long deeply involv
ed. I found out even wor.-o than this
at least what I dreaded much more.
This was u forgery to an immense
nmount, which he, in concert with an
other person, had committed on an ex
tensive mercantile house. Ihe accom
plice, in a high state of trepidation,
eamo to tell mo that tho whole was iu a
fair way of being blown, and that If we
wished to mivo our necks, an Instantan
eous departure from the city was indis
pensable. .Such a piece of Intelligence
throw mo Into great alarm. Ifl re
mained, my apprehension would ho In
evitable i and how would it be possible
for nio to persuade anyone that I was
not Wolstang'.' My conviction and ex
edition must follow; anil though 1 was
now so regardless of llfo that I Mould
gladly havo been iu my grave, yet there
was something res'olting iu thu idea ol
dying lor a villian, merely Ihciiu-u I
could not show that I was not myself.
These rellectlous had their due weight,
und 1 resolved to leave (Iottlngcn next
day, and escape from the country aj
While meditating upon this fcheme I
walked about three miles out of town
for the purpose of maturing my plans,
undisturbed by tho noise and hii-tla of
tho streets. As rwiisgoingslowlyalon;
I precelved a man walking about a fur
long before inc. Ills gait and dress nr
rested mv attention narticularly, and
after n few glances I was convinced that
ho must bo myself. Tho Joy that pre
vailed my mind at this sight no language
can dcscrllio: it was as a giiiupso oi
heaven, and tilled nio with perfect ec
stasy. Pnulonce, however, did not lor
sake mo, and resolved to steal slowly
upon him collar him, mid demand an
explanation. With this view I approach
ed him, concealing myself as well as I
could, and was so successful that 1 had
actually got within ten yards of my
prey without being ill-covered. At this
instant, hearing footsteps, he turned
round, looked alarmed, and took to his
heels. I was after him In a moment,
and tho flight on onu side, mid pursuit
on tho other, wero keenly contested.
Thanks to Wolstaug's long legs, thuy
wcro better than the short ones with
which my antagonist was furnished,
and I caught lilm by tho collar, as ho
was about to enter a wood, I grasped
my body with Herculean gripe, so terri
fied was I to lose it. "And now, you
villain," said I, us soon fts I could re
cover breath, "tell mo the meaning of
this. Jtostoromemy body.or by heaven
" You will do what?" asked lie, with
tho most Insolent coolness, This ques
tion was nilaggcr tomysoul, for I knew
that any punishment I Inlllcted on lilm
must lie Inflicted upon myself, I sfood
mute for n few seconds, still holding lilm
strongly lu my grasp. At last throwing
pity aside, by one vast ell'ort, I cried
out, " 1 declare solemnly, WoM'ing,
that if you tlonot glvomolmekmy body
I (.hall kill you on the spot,"
" Kill moon the spot I" replied he.
" Do you mean to say that you will kill
your own body?"
" I do suy so," was my answer: "1
will rather destroy my tlear body, than
It should bo disgraced hy a scoundrel
"You aro Jesting." said Wolstang,
endeavouring to extricato himself.
" I shall show you thucountrary," re
joined I, giving lilm u violent blow on
the nose and another ou the ribs. These
strokes almost druw tears from my eyes:
and when I saw my precious blood How-1 In u third at my own house. What he

without lereinony. While engaged In
this business, I heard n sneeze, and
looking to the quarter from whence It
proceeded, who did 1 see emerging from
tho wood but my old acquaintance,
with tho snulf-coloured surtout, tho
scarlet waistcoat, mid wooden leg. He
saluted me ns usual with n. smile, and
was beginning to regret the length of
time which had elapsed since he last
had the pleasure of seeing me, when 1
interrupted him. "Come," said I, "this

Wolstang with a pitiable voice.

In an Instant I felt great pains shoot
through me, and I lay on the ground,
breathless and exhausted as If from
some dreadful punishment. I also saw
the little gentleman, and the tall, stout
llguro of Wolstang, walkaway arm and
arm, und enter tho wood. I was now
myself again, but had at first lilt localise
of congratulation on the change, for I
was one heap of bruises, while the un-
prlnclpledautliorof my calamnities was
movlngofl' In his own body without a
single scratch. If my frame was in bad
case, however, my mind felt relieved
beyond conception. A load was tauen
from it, ami it felt tho consciousness of
being incused in that earthly tenement
destined by heaven for its habitation.
Alas, liow transient is human happl-
no-si 1 Scarcely hud an hourelupscd when
u shuddercumo over me, precisely simi
lar to that which had occured some
weeks before on entering tho College of
(ioltlngen. I also precei veil that I was
stronger, talletyind more vigorous, and,
as if by magic, totally freo of pain. At
this change, a horrid sentiment eamo
across ine, and, on looking at my shadow
lu a well, I observed that l was no longer
myself, but WoKtaug: tho diabolical
miscreant had again eflected a ine
tempsyehosis. Full of distracting Ideas,
I wandered about the fields till night
fall, when I returned into the oily, ami
threw myself into bed, ooynouri J
with fatigue nud grief.
Next day I made a point of railing at
my own house, and inquiring for my
self. The servant said that i could not
be seen, being conllned to bed In con
sequence of several bruises received In
an encounter with two highwaymen. I
called next day, mid was still confined.
On tho third day I did the same, but 1
had gone out with a friend. On the
fourth 1 learnt that 1 was dead.
It will readily be believed that this
last intelligence was far from being un
welcome. On hearing of my own death
I felt tho most lively pleasure, antici
pating tho period when 1 would bo my
self again. That period, according lo
Wol.-tang's solemn vow, would arrive
iu five days. Three of these 1 had spent
lu the house, carefully secluding myself
from observation, when I heard asnoczo
at tho outside of thu boor. It opened,
and In stepped the lltle man with the
smifl'-coloured surtout, the scarlet waist
coat, and the wooden leg. I had con
ceived a dislike approaching to horror
at this old rascal, whom I naturally con-cluded-to
be at the bottom of the-o dia
bolical transformations; 1 however,
contained my wrath till I should hour
what he hail to say.
" 1 wish you niiich Jiiy.niyilearfi lcnd,
that you are going to resume your own
body. There is, however, one circum
stance, which perhaps you have over
looked. Are you aware that you are to
be buried to-day?"
" 1 never thought of it," answered 1
windy, "nor Is It of any consequence,
I presume. In two days 1 shall bo my

as the thought eamo across uie.
" Precisely so, and you will enjoy tlio
pleasure of being hurled alive: that, 1
suppose, you have not calculated upon."
This remark struck me with blank
dismay, and 1 fell back on my chair,
uttering a deep groan. "Is there then
no hope ? cannot this dreadful doom bo
averted? must I bo buried nllvo?"
"Tho case Is rather a hard one, Mr.
Stadt, but, peihap-, not without a reme
dy." "Yes, there Is a remedy," cried 1,
starling up and striking my forehead.

" Only reflect once more conside

"Then, fool," said he, while a frown
perfectly unnatural to him corrugated
his brow, and his eyes shot forth vivid
glances of fire "then, fool, I leavo you

room, dispensing with his usual bow
and grimaces, and dashing tho door
fiercely nfler him, while I threw myself
upon a couch lu an agony of de-pair.
My doom was now sealed beyond all
hope; for, going to the windows a few
minutes thereafter, I Uelield my own
funeral, with my cousin at thu head of
tho procos-ion, acting as chief mourner
In a short time, I saw the company

AN ENGLISHMAN'S VALUATION
or ma Lit i,.
At tho time when party spirit and
active hostilities wero raging in jici-
glum, nt tho close of tho fifteenth cen-
tury, certain soldiers of the Spanish
Army happened to bo taken prisoners
by tho Dutch ; nntl by way of martial
retaliation for a similar net of cruelty
practiced upon some Dutch prisoners
by tho Spaniards, nil of them wero to
be hnnged. Humanity, however, sub-
trestcd Hint It wrt! unliecessnry to put
ter. For tlio purpose or ascertaining
who wcro to be tlio sufferers, twenty-
four lots wero inadet eight of which
had the figure of n gibbet described
upon them, nnd tho remaining sixteen
w-cre In blank. Tho wholo twenty-four
lots being shaken together nud cast pro-
mlsctiouslv into a helmet, each prisoner
was ordered to draw out one; those
w, drew a blank lot were Immediately
ill - ehanrcd. but thoso who druw the fa-
tnl svmbol wero hanged on the spot.
Tho conduct of thoso who wero com-
oelled tosct their lives upon so dospcr-
nto a cast, varied according to tho nerve
