I was apt to become llie unintentional

usual for some jovial gentleman to en

in the morning, with a bottle of cham

everybody in turn', nnd insist that each

of this veritable "Champagne Charlie."
At length, just as It grow dark, wo

hungry. It was hero that Fry's friend
lived, mul, after numerous Inquiries at
all tho diggers' tents wo p.issed, we
learnt that Ilroeklebank kept the lloyal
Liver .Store, near tho head of the gully.
It was almost dark, nnd I had tum
bled down sevral times among the
tree-stumps from sheer fatigue and wea

tent with boarded sides, and was (pilto

made largo profits by thesu transactions,
for, owing to theiu-ecurity of the roads,
tho value of gold was from fivoBhlllings

tha gold purchased in lieudigo in 1S32
at three pounds flvo shillings nnd three

It is now nearly fifteen years ago
since I was attacked by an epidemic
di-oider which prevailed extensively
at that time among the young men of
the United Kingdom. It was common
ly styled the gold-fever, and tho fit
seized mo veri suddenly. I called one
evening in Camden Town it wns a
plea-ant nlry suburb at that time to
seo to bachelor friends of mine who
shared lodgings together. I found the
iloor of their sitting-room lumbered
with boxes.
" What aro you doing'."' I asked in
" Wu'ro off for the gold-diggings."
"Ity what ship '!"
" The John Taylor ; next Wednesday
I recklessly flung my hat to tho other
end of tho room, gave such a leap that
my head nearly bumped against tho
c'illng, nnd cried,
" I will go witli you."
" Thnt's right, old boy," they respon
ded. Go and securo your passage tho
first tiling in tho morning. She's fill
ing up quick."
The London atmosphere was nt that
time surcharged witli an auriferous In

Ing did not Induce mo to swerve from
my resolution of tho previous night ;j
on the contrary, as soon ns tho governor
appeared at the counting-house I boldly
walked Into his private room, and dis
charged myself.
Tho governor was, and, I nm thank
ful to say, is still, for I am once moro

I'm sorry for it ; but if you young men

by another ves-scl, and this accident
probably led to the adventure which I
have undertaken to relate.
I shall not descrlbo the voyage on

successive nights. On hearing Fry's

"This," says Fry, in the most ungra-1 thnt Urocklebank should trust me, an

only a twelvemonth in the colony, ho
was reported to have amassed a fortuuo
lu tho diggings, nnd was now on tho

over, ns Mr. Mills was thirty years of
ago, and had a prematurely bald ibte
head ho assumed quite a fatherly air
towards a youngster like me, for I was
not yet out of my teens, and my beard
was still all "underground."
"Why don't you go up, young man?"
says Mr. Millsonu morning, as wo Mood

Before going to bed that night,
Hroe'tlcbank, according lo a custom
which ho told mo he invariably observ

"Twcnty-sevoii packet'," I heard him
say aloud.
lie then placed tliem, box and nil, ill
tlie little receptacle under the floor of
the t?nt, unchained Boxor, the bull
mastiff, wlio had been tied up during
tho day, examined the capping of his
revolver, placed It beneath hlslicd with
in arm's length, and retired to rest.
Perhaps I had slept loo soundly the
night before, perhaps I was excited by
the thoughts of llio glittering gold
which I hoped to wash out on tho mor
row, at any rate, for some reasons or
other, I was unable lo get to sleep. At
last,tlred Nature asserted her dominion,
and I dozeil off Imperceptibly. I cannot
say how long I had been asleep, when I
awoke suddenly witli a con vulsl vo start,
opened my eyes, and gazed confusedly
niound me. But was I really nwako,
or was this merely an attack of night
mare'.' Wlint I saw was sufficiently
disquieting. Urocklebank had been tho
last to get into bed, nnd ho had extln-
iiuls' od tho candle. But when I nwoko
-or fancied I had awoke, for on the
following morning I attributed nil my
terrors to the heaviness of an unicaven-
d cake which I had eaten for euppcr,
when I awoke, my eyes wort dazzled
by a bright light, and I presently per
ceived that there were no less than
threo candles burning, two on tho coun
ter where wo wore accustomed to weigli
out the groceries, and one on the floor.
I was still more surprised to observe
that Urocklebank was out of bed, par
tially drex-ed, and thnt lio was stoop
ing over tho cavity whore ids treasures
wero deposited. Ilis back was towards
me, so that I could not discern ids face,
or make out what ho wns doing; but
after n lew moments, ho rose to ids foot
and confronted me. 1 was horrified.
Tiie handsome face, which a few hours
calm, busi-
now distort
ed by passion; tho eyes which had
sparkled witli a kindly shrewdness,
now glared wildly, yot in such a vacant,
objectless manner, that they appeared
totally unconscious that I was staring
into them with nil my might. A few
moments later, after he had carefully
replaced the flag which concealed Ills
gold-chamber from ordinary view.
Ilroeklebank put his hand beneath his

"Have you no friends on lieudigo V"
asked Urocklebank, kindly.
"None that 1 mil find to-night," I re-
' piled, blushing like ti school-girl, "but
I hopo to find tliem in a day or two."
I Sjiiio whispered conversation took
I place between Fry and Hrocklebaulc
after this.
"I must tako the poor boy in," I
heard the latter say.
"Well, don't hold mo responsible,"
growled tho former ; "l know nothing
