TlIK UUOD OLD TIMKS.
Tlio good old times when good raon ruled tho
straightforward honesty the only art.
When Jusllco reigned, and fraud and wrong
And Bltnplo manner spake a guileless heart
These many men demand.
Tlio good old limes when farmers went to mill,
Their grtt In sack wed balanced with a stone;
When the gcodjH?oplo had of work their nil,
The men a-fleld, tlio wives at homo ntono,
All tolling with a will.
Thero were ho railways then to spoil tho farm
Tho Jolting stage coach boro thi traveler slow;
Thero was nogns to surfocatc a"d harm
A tallow dip gavo light obscurely low,
And caused no man alarm.
There wero no telegraphs by sea and thoro
A letter by tho post-boy Jogged along;
Tho mistress made .the clothes her husband
(And spun tho yarn and wore It) good and
They tlmo and usago bore.
No loud machine, to thresh tho garncrod corn
Tho rattling Hall tho business did and well;
What music there, beginning with tlumornl
Th bo pounding strokes In metrlo miasurcs

this man was at Naples about two years
since. A party ot us had just gone
ashore, and were about returning to out
boat when the sharp report of firearms
attracted our attention to a retired spot
on the suburbs of that beautiful city.
On turning aside, we suddenly came
upon a group of three men. Two of
these were raising the body of a third,
while hastening away in the direction
which brought them close to our own
party, were two others, in ono of whom

Regiment of foot. The story I learned
in connection with this tragic affair wa
a very sad one indeed, and so black were
somoot the circumstances in connection
with it that I was not surprised to learn
shortly afterward that tho survivor on
that occasion had ceased, after an inqui
ry, to be a member of the gallant corps
which lie had, as was said, so disgraced.
At this stage of tlienarrative,a knock
ing was heard at the hotel door, and on
young Jones going to inquire what
might bo the business of the poison
knocking, an entire stranger replied that
lie had business with Mr. Frank Curtis
which admitted of no delay.
A rather gentlemanlike person with a
hot unmihtary air made his appearance,
and on his requesting a few words of
private conversation, Frank rose fiom
his seat and dcs'ntd the stranger to fol
low him into the little flower garden
with which the conservatory communi
cated. After a tew minutes conversation he
returned to his friends, saving :
'You will, then, bo so obliging as to

much greater alacrity in executing this
latter commission than had been the case

messenger, on his ictiirn no inn a pocK-
