exclaimed, springing to his feet and

changed, ids eyes glittered with the
baleful glare of insanity. I once more
beheld tho tcrrlblo figure which I had

mouth, when ho uttered a sharp cry of
anger, and suddenly seizing mo by the

next instant I saw tho muzzle of his re
volver pointed nt my head. "Parker"
ho shouted, "you aro a traitor and a vil
lain ; you aro in leaguo with tho rest of
tho gang. I must kill you."
My chances of cscapo would have
boen small, for tlio wholo of this terrific
scene had been enacted in a few seconds:
but nt that critical moment, when the
homicide's hand wns on tho trigger, the
frail canvas door of the tent was thrown
open, nnd Lnngford nnd Adnmson burst
in. Langford immediately threw him
self on Drocklebank, whllo Adamson
seized tho wrist of tho murderous, hand
which held tho revolver. Tho shot
which, n few moments earlier, would as
suredly have penetrated ray brain,
passed harmlessly through tho roof of
the tent. After a brief struggle tho un
fortunate maniac, for such I now plain
ly perceived him to be, was secured,
and held in safo custody until daylight.
Langford lost no tlmo In communicat
ing with Melbourne, where Drockle
bank, who had been settled for sev
eral years in tho colony, had many
friends, who held him Iu high estima
tion. Wo afterwards learnt that, som
years before, when at homo In Liver
pool, ho had shown symptoms of men
tal derangement, but that ho had ap
parently been perfectly cured. The.
doctors recommended him, on bis re
covery, to seek a totally new sphere of
action, and ho had accordingly emi
grated to the southern hemisphere.
Since his arrival in Victoria no on
had detected in him any traces of insan
ity, but tho seeds of that fell malady
had evidently only lain dormant, and
had suddenly sprung up In full vigor.
A few days later, after a careful medical
examination, tho poor fellow was re
moved from Iron Dark Gully to th
Lunntic Asylum nt tho Ynrra Bend,
near Alelbourno. I nm not nwnre what
beenmc of him subsequently, it wan
doubtless in the confusion of mind com
mon In cases of approaching Insanity,
that ho had forgotten where lie had
placed the two parcels of gold which
had cau-ed me so much trouble.
As for myself, I shortly nfterwardi
heard news of my London friends, who
came out by tho John Taylor, but
found Hint neither of thorn wasasuitn
bio companion for one who wns deter
mined to servo n steady apprenticeship
to tho trade of gold digging. Hard
manual labor did not suit them; they
only stayed threo weeks on the mine,
nnd then gave up tho profession in dis
gust. They afterwards obtained more
congenial occupations, the one as assist
ant In a ready-made clothes mart in Great
Dourko Street, tho other ns advertise
ment collector to n Qcclong new-paper
of limited circulation. I was, therefore
well content to remain in company
with Langford and Adam-on. I work
ed for twelve months with them, nnd
could not possibly have fallen in with
pleasanter or more trustworthy com-
uiilons. None of us, however, made
our fortunes nt gold-digging. Wo tolled
steadily nnd per'everlngly, we seldom
sank n hole that had not some gold In
it, yet on reckoning up our earnings nt
tho end of Hie yenr, wo found that w
had prospered nbout us well as v Ictorl
an day-laborers, in constnnt employ

hillings a dnyaplece. Notwithstanding
this comparatively ill-siiccu-s,l shall al
ways recollect with satisfaction th
time 1 spent on tho Dcndlgo gold-field
for I laid In a stock of vigorous health
nnd self-reliance, which aro better
worth having than a tin dish full of
nuggets. At tho samo tlmo I never

remembering that I onco stood lu that

my provident inl escape.
