HE QUAKER AND THE BOBBER.
TRANSLATED FROM THE Fltr.NCII 1IY It,
Tho most honest of all Quakers, Toby
Slmpton, lived in London, In a pleas
ant Httlo dwelling graced by tho pres
enco of his daughter Mary. Sho was
not quito seventeen years of ago ; was
charmingly fuirj had blue eyes, and
possessed as much modesty ns beauty.
All the young men of her father's nc-
qunintaiico wero her suitors; all thoso
of tho neighborhood sought to gain her
notice. Valu efforts! Mary was no eo-
ijuctto, and instead of enjoying tho
effect produced by her charms, sho was
vexed on account of the manners of all
her admirers, except ono Edward
Wcresford, a young artist, admitted to
tho intimacy of tho family.
A very simple event had caused this
friendship. A premature death had
carried off tho Quaker's wife. Sho was
youug nnd beautiful; nnd desiring to
perpctuato tho imago of her who was
so dear to hlra, ho had caused tho artist
to come to tho bed of death. It was
thero that Edward saw tho dcsolato
damsel ; it was there u serious first lovo
took place, amid tho tears of ono and
tho pious work of tho other. Tho year
which elapsed after this epoch had but
strongthened tho bond formed under
these auspices, and tho young man had
showed to tho father botli his desiro
Tho excellent Toby had no reason
whatever for opposing tho mutual In
clinations of tho two young persons.
Without being rich, Edward earned,
by means of his pcucil, what suffered
to support a family honorably. His
father, Mr. Wcresford, on old merchant
of tho city, had retired from business
Hi it fortune increased moro than ten
fold. This was n raro example of rapid
success In speculation so rapid indeed
that fuw wero nblo to follow its progress.
Yet Wcresford, of so blunt and stern
disposition, lived ulono in u suburb of
London, and without caring what his
son was doing, left htm entirely at lib
erty. Ho was ono of thoso accommo
dating egotists who troifblo no one,
provided they trouble not them per
sons of perfect complalsanco if you ak
nothing of them.
Edwnrd, thercforo, could without In
terruption, court ids pretty Quakeress,
well assured that his father would nev
er think of opposing his ninrrlage. Tho
situation of tho loving couplo was, to
all appearance, very prosperous; and
honest Toby did not put off tho day of
their marrlago longer than to collect
tho arrearages of hla rents : ho destined
tho money for tho extraordinary ex
penscs of tho ceremony. For this pur
poso ho went to his country seat, soma
miles from Loudon, In order toregulato
his affairs. Ho had passed but ono doy
from homo ; nnd ns ho was about to
put up his horso for tho night, ho per
ceived nt somo distance ix horseman,
who had barred tho road. Ho stopped
uncertain whether to go on or turn back,
Mcanwlillo tho horsomnn advanced
towards him. Tho Quaker could not
oven think of escaping; ho thercforo
put on tx good face, nnd brought Ms
horse to n walk. In approaching tho
man who caused ids uneasiness, ho per
ceived that ho wns masked, n grlovous
augury, which wns booh confirmed.
Tho unknown showed a pistol and ill'
rccted thu muzzlo to tho traveller, do
mondlng hla purso. Tho Quaker did
not want courage, but calm by charaO'
tcr, lnoffen8lvo by religion, nnd ocn
unablo, without arms, to resist an arm
cd man, ho pulled from hla pockot very
coolly, n pureo containing twolvo guln
ens. Tho robber took it, counted tho
pieces, and left tho poor man whom ho
had stopped, to pass on, whilo ho put
hla horso to tho trot. But tho robber,
scolng tho -slight reslstanco ho had op-
poseu, nun aiiurou by tho hopo of a
socond booty, immediately rclolnod
lionost Toby, placed himself nnow In
his way, and presenting his pistol ns
licroro.crlod out to him, "Your Wiitcht"
Iho Quaker, surprised, was neverthe
less unmoved. Ho coolly took his
watch from tho fob, looked at tho hour.
nnd put tho costly nrtlclo into tho hand
of tho robber, saying :
"Now, I beseech thee, pormlt mo to
go to my dwelling my daughter will
bo uneasy nt my absence."
"A moment more," replied tho mask
ed crtvallor.tho moro and moro hardened
by this docility; "swear to mo Hint you
liavo no other sum"
"I never swear," said tho Quaker.
"Very well. Affirm that you havo
no other mouoy, nnd on tho faith of an
honest robber, incapable of taking by
vlolenco from n man who yields with
so good n graco, 1 will let you cotitlnuo
on your journey."
Tho Quaker rellccted n moment nnd
shook his head.
"Whntthinkest thou," hosald grave
ly, "thou hnst discovered that I am a
Quaker, nnd will not betray tho truth,
though at tho peril of my life. Thus I
declare to theo that I havo under my
saddlo cloth a sum of two hundred
"Two hundred pounds sterling!"
cried tho robber, whilo lib oyes spark
led through his mask.
"But if thou art good ns thou art
kind," replied tho Quaker, "thou wilt
lonvo mo this money. 1 wish to cstab
lisli my daughter, nnd this sum is ncc
cssnry ; for a long titno I shall not havo
a similar sum at my disposal. Tho
dear child loveth her intended, nnd it
will bj crut'l to delay this union. Thou
hast loved, poradventuro, and thou
wouldst not commit this wicked act."
"What caro I for your daughter, and
her lover nnd their marriage? Less
talk, and moro promptltudo of execu
tion! I must have this money."
Toby, with a sigh, lifted tho cloth,
took a bag heavy enough, nnd passed It
slowly to tho masked man. Ills Inten
tion then was to gallop off,
"Slop again, friend Quaker." said
the other laying his hand upon tho
bridle; "as soon as you arrive, you will
denounce mo to the magistrates. This is
according to order. I have nothing tosay ;
but I must havo tho advancoof tho pro
cess of to-night, at least. My maro Is
feeblo, and Is, besides, fatigued ; your
horso, on tho contrary, appears vigor
ous, for tho weight of this bag does not
Incommode him. Alight and glvo mo
your beast; you may tako mine, if you
Ho was slow in beginning to comply,
becauso theso cross exigencies wero of it
naturo to raise tho choler of tho most
patient man. Tho good Toby, however,
descended, and resignedly took tho
sorry Jado which was left him in ex
change. "If I had known." ho con
tented himself in thinking, "I would
havo lied nt tho first encounter with
tills rogue, and certainly it is not with
tills courser that ho would havo gained
Hi tho incc."
During this tlmo tho masked man
ironically thanking liim for his com
plaisance, applied botli spurs and
Bcforo ho reached London, Toby had
tlmo to rellecton his misfortune, on tho
chagrin of tho two young persous who
loved, and whoso happiness would bo
put off. Tho sum taken from hi in was
Irrevocably lost. Not tho least of it
could bo regained, nor could tho auda
cious robber bo recognized. Mcanwhilo
ns a sudden idea struck him, ho stop
Yes," taid he, "this means may suc
ceed. If this man liveth In London,
1 may poradventuro meet him again.
Heaven, no doubt, hath willed that ho
should havo been so very Imprudent."
Somewhat consoled, by I know not
what hope, Toby went homo without
showing nny troublo, or faying aught
of his adventure. He did not go to tho
magistrate, but embraced his daughter,
who huspected nothing, and lay down
nnd slept. His faith was in Qod.
Next day ho secretly thought of co
operating with Providence in making
research. Ho let tho maro out of tho
stnblo whero Mia hnd passed tho night,
and threw tho bridlo over her neck, In
hopes that tho animal, led by habit,
would naturally go to tho houso of her
master. Ho therefore sent off tho poor
beast which had been fasting, to wan
dor at largo through tho streets of Lon
don, and followed her. Hut ho suppos
ed her to havo moro Instinct than sho
had: for n long tlmo sho went right
and left, making a thousand turns and
returns without aim, without direction,
sometimes at n stand, then taking a
contrary courao. Toby despaired. "My
robber," thought ho "doth not ilvo in
London, What folly In mo! instead of
going to tho magistrato when I had tho
tlmo, to have suffered mysolf to holed
away by this wretched imlmal "
Suddculy, howover, tho beast pricked
up.hor oars nud set off on a brUk trot,
followed closely by tho Quaker.

Tho Quaker stood petrified.

Hohellovcd ho was dreaming, nnd
desired to como to himself. Meantlmo
many examples occurred to his memory
of many respectnhlo persons who wero
in Icnguo with banditti. Toby resolved
to Invcstlgato tho mystery.
Ho entered boldly Into tho court, and
demanded to spoak with tho proprietor,
who had Just gone to bed, though It was
near midday n now Indication of a
night of fatlguo ! Tho Quaker insisted
on being Introduced, and soon found
himself in Wcresford's bedchamber.
Ho not being used to being disturbed,
rubbed hla eyes nnd demanded with
somo impctlcnco, t
"Who nro you, sir? What do you

The sound of tho volco wns recog
nized by Toby, nnd thoroughly con
vinced him. Ho tranquilly drow n

Ids hat on his head.
"Do you remain covered?" cried tho
merchant, in surprise.
"I nm n Quaker," nnswered tho oth

knowest that such Is our usngo."
At theso words of tho Quaker, Weres

ho turned deadly pale.
"Well," demanded he, stammering,

certed the old merchant that ho could
not deny tho possession of tho articles,
but, not liking to acknowledge tho
crime, ho hesitated to uuswor, when
"I wisii thco to participate at tho ap

"Yes. Dost thou not know that ho
is Mary's lover, and that 'tls ho that la

"Edward!" exclaimed tho morchant
throwing himself from tho bed.
'Edward Weresford," mildlj replied
tho Quaker, whilo quietly taking a
pinch of snuff. "Come, do tills thing
for him. I would not, verily, that ho
should know aught of what passed last

Two hours afterwards Weroaford ar
rived nt tho houso of Toby, nnd taking
him apart, said:
"Honest Quaker, your proceedings

A short time before tils death tho Into
Secretary Stanton said It pained him to
seo tho opinion so prevalent that Mr.
Lincoln was nn habitual Joker.nnd that
ho wns nover serious. Mr. Stanton said
it wns n great error, nnd related tho fol
lowing incident to provu tho Injtistlco
of tho popular Impression :
Mr. Lincoln was very netiBltlvoof tho
criticisms of tho newspaper prosa, be
lieving It, as ho asserted, tho truo voico
of tho people. Tho failures of McDow
oil nnd McClellnn and Burnsldo nnd
Popo with the Army of tho Potomac,
nnd tho accompanying criticisms of tho
newspapers, had almost crazed him.
Tlmo nnd again ho would free himself
from tho White House, nnd seek Mr.
Stanton's littlo office: the only place in
Washington, ho often remarked, whero
ho was Ireofrom bores.
Ho often talked to Mr. Stanton of re
signing, or of pressing upon Congress
tho propriety of giving to military or
naval men tho control of tho army and
navy. It was during this period that
lie conceived tho idea of putting Hook
er in command of tho Army ot the Po
tomac and havo him mako an effort for
success. Ho had a good opinion of
Hooker, thinking him to bo an honest
nnd slncero patriot nnd soldier. Ho
put him in command, nnd did every
thing in ids power to mako him fight
what ho wanted to mako tho closing
battlo of tho war. Accordingly, when
Hooker got under way and news camo
that at Chanco'lorsvlllo ho would mako
his light, Mr. Lincoln was in the great
est state of mental excitement. From
tho timo that Hooker began to march,
until tho smoke of battlo hnd fairly
cleared from tho fatal Held of Chancel
loravlllc, the President scarcely knew
what it was to sleep. It will bo remem
bered that tho fight lasted three days.
During tho first two days it looked as if
nooker was nbout to accomplish what
so many had failed to do, but early on
tho third day tho usual half hour dis
patches began to mnko matters look
worse. That whole day Mr. Lincoln
was miserable. Ho ato nothing, nnd
would see no ono but Mr. Stanton. As
it grew dark the dispatches censed com
ing. Tiio President would walk from
tho White Houso to tho War Depart
ment nud anxiouslylnquirofor Hooker.
Tho night was dark nnd stormy nbout
as mean a night as was over experienc
ed in Washington. About seven o'clock
tho President ceased hh visits to tho
An hour afterward n dispatch of an
indefinite character was received, and
Mr. Stanton hurried with it to tho
Whito House. Ho found Mr. Lincoln
walking tho room, nnd, ns ho entered,
tho ngoniziiig nppcarnneoof tho Presi
dent so terrified the Secretary that it
wns with difficulty ho could spenk. Mr.
Lincoln tnlked to him liko a wild man,
and seizing tho dispatch from his hand,
read It, and simply remarked: "Stan
ton thero Is no hopo yet!" At Mr.
Stanton's solicitation, tho President ac
companied him to tho War Department
where they agreed to spend tho tlmo
together until bomcthing deflnito was
heard from Hooker. For four hours,
tlie longest and most wearisomo of ids
life, said Mr. Stanton, they waited bo
fore tho dispatch nniioitnclnjc tho re
treat of Hooker was received. When
Mr. Lincoln had read It, ha throw up
his hands aud exclaimed: "My God!
Stanton our causo Is lost. Wo aro ruin
ed ! Wo nro ruined! And such a fear
ful lnfsof life. My God! this la moro
than I can endure," Ho stood tremb
ling llkoa leaf, tho perspiration rolling
from his brow. Ho put on Ills hat ami
coat, nnd becan naclng tho floor. For
fivo minutes ho wns silent, and then
turning to Stanton lie tnid: "If 1 am
not about to morrow morning, don't
feel alarmed. Defeated again, anil so
many killed! What will tho people
say ?" As ho mode tho remark ho went
to open thu door to go out. His actions
alarmed Mr. Stanton, and ho stopped
him, nud entreated him to return, Hint
they might talk .and act liko men.
With difficulty ho had him return,
and Mr. Stanton began to try to clicor
him, Ho finally got him to assent to
retlro to bed, and lenvo for tho army
tho noxt mornjng which ho did. Lin
coln afterwards told Mr. Stunlon that
when ho told him about not being
alarmed if ho was not about tho next
morning, ho had fully niado up Ids
mind to go to tho Potomac and drown
himself. Mr. Stanton says .ho thought
at the tlmo tho President contemplated
suicide, nnd nover felt so frightened
during his lifetime.
