A TALK WITH A HCKPOCKEr.
Trom the New York Fun.
In tlio iuiikI,-) of llio lionost portion

prevails, Unit tukitig rnonry or vul

Ncwnpnpor anil rnauiizinc writers fos
ter this idea. Now this no'.ion is not
exactly correct, and it is to set the
matter right that I indite this articlo.
I have had peculiar futilities for an
lionebt man (and 1 hope 1 am Bitch
anyhow 1 have never been detected
in any crime.)
"ot long ago I was brought into
certain relations with one of the most
uoted and expert pickpockets of the
day, and for more than a year had
daily opportunities of communicating
with him. During t! is timo ho ex
plained to mo the wholo business of
stealing Irom a persons, ana gave me
practical illustrations of the mudut op
eraiuli in a number of cases. To set
the gist of the matterof the numerous
interview! had between myself and
the pickpocket in a clear light, suppose
that the following ctnversatlon oc

one as easy as the other, that there ih
no choice ; besides it depends upon
circumstances. But the commonest
way is this there ain't much ttkill in
it. only boldness : Threo of us go to
gether. To a question No j we hardly ever
work alone unices circumstances are
very fuvontblo or we arc hard np. Ol
course anybody can tko a innn'a
"wipe," but that game isn't played in
this country. In fact, (hero he di
greased with a sorrowful air) nicking
pockets don't pay like burglary a
miin has to make so muny more oper
ations, and consequently so niuny
more ricks ol being caught. But nev
er mind, three of us go together, each
one having his particular duty. We
go into a crowd any large crowd,
but prefer a alill crowd, such as you
find listening to a political ppceeh,
elections are rich limes with us and lo
suppose a ease in such a closely crow
dud throne, wo single out a man who
is promising and whose money we
wunt ; one of us worka his way in
front of him so as to crowd ntrninst
his lelt arm, another get! himself be
hind him, and tho operator stands at
his right partly back. In tins partic
ular case it is supposed that our game
is a stranger having considerable
money about him. Jlo is carclul of
his money, and keeps his hand on his
pocket look, which is in his right
hand pocket. When tho proper time
comes tho man behind lips up or
smashes down the but of the country
man, whoso first impulse is lo restore
it, and as he cant raise his left arm he
lakes his hand from his right pocket,
when the operator dives and beizes
tho money. This action the poor
devil does not feel nine times out of
ten ; ho is generally mad at having
his hat knocked over hi eyes, and
turns to see hodidit. Thoonowho
did the act seir.es tho first "Cat" near
him and shoves him ahead, then dives
and rushes through tho crowd j this
we all do, and meet at sonic appointed
place lo divide the prolits. Generally
tho man whoso money wo have got
has a "jaw" with tho one he Cuds be
hind him, and by tho time ho has
missed his money we are dividing it.
Of course, wo conform to circumstan
ces in tho way of op-rating, but this
is a fair illustration. Sometimes, how
ever, when it is afe, we adopt tho
way of lifting the lining of ihe pocket
and so extracting the money. If wo
aro caught in this, the same manner
of getting away is adopted."
"Well, Georgo. as lo operations on
street cars and railroads, r'
"In respect lo tho former, they arc
generally nothing but forcible robber
ies ; wo gel together on tho platform
and hy creating a row, tuko a man's
money by lorce before he knows it.
And llicre is not much dillerenco in
our way of doing things on the rail
roads. We pick out our man, and at
some stopping place, where bo gets
out for lunch or any other purpose,
ono or two of us manage lo tet ahesd
of him, tho othor b
hiud hi in, and by
jostling and causing confusion we have

wutches we don't bother with. Chains
we rarely get except by forco, and
they ain't worth much unless solid,
then wo have them melted down, as
we also sometimes have tho cases."
"As lo diamond pins and studs?"
"That's a trick that requites bold
ness and skil'. The usual manner of
doing it is for the operator, carrying
a cloak or coat on his arm, to meet
the victim, behind whom come the
confederates. As if by accident, be
runs plump against bis man, and
thrusts tbe coat into his face with one
arm, w hile with the band of the other
he snatches the pin. If thero is any
row the confederates pilch in, and all
get away in the confusion."
"But can you take money from a
man's insido coal or vest pocket ?"
"Of course, the same plan is adopted
as with the pin. We 'spot' a mun on
the cars and watch him; I get some
distance forward of him and my two
pals behind ; when be starts to leave
the car 1 hurry forward of him and
they hurry back ; I get out ahead of
him and turn around to meet him,
while my confederates have como out
and got close behind him ; I rush
gainst him in front and they do so
behind; 1 shove tho coat in his face
with ono hand and dive for tho money

a man for two or threo days, and when
wo are sure he has got it good pile
with him we are bound to gel it, and
unless he is protected we do gel it one
way or another."
"But how do you know a man has
a 'good pile?' "
"Oh, that's easy enough. In the
first place, wo 'spot' agents lrom the
country who are in the city to buy
goods, and then there is no difficulty
in finding out where they keep their
money. The principle of tho wholo
thing is, that a man having an unusu
ally large amount of money on his
person will bo so careful of it that he
will often feel to seo whether it is safo.
Besides knowing these men we witch
them, and so learn which ones are tho
most promising. Somotiines, too, the

The Middletown (I)ol.) Transcript
says: Tho old story of 'Marshal Ney
being no other than Michael Kudolph,
o: J'.lltton, Cecil county, Aid , is revived
"!?in ibo extract which follows. It
is worthy ot mention, that the Kudolph
"""y, mgury respecntoie ono still
living in tho vicinity of Llkton, re-
j"'-1 tllis Marshal Ney story in toto.
'rt.M i u .u...t. :.. . ....
There is just enough truth in some oi'
tho circumstances to give a coloring
of probability to it. Michael Jtudolph
did live near Klkton ; ho did trade to
tho West Indies, either as master or
supercargo of a vesssel, und was never
afterwards heard of. 11 is rolutiveH
suppose that vessel and cargo and all
on board went down in the depth of
the ocean. A French gentleman,
travelling a few years ago between
Philadelphia and Baltimore, ovor the
New Castlonnd Frenchtown Railroad,
when the cars were about crossing
the litia into Cecil county, casually
mentioned to a connection of tho Ku
dolph family, whom be did not know,
but who happened to be a fellow-passenger,
that Cecil county was the for
mer residence of Marshal Ney, whose
real name was Michael .Rudolph. The
circumstance was a strange ono, and
is worthy of meation, but his friends
all reject the story of the identity of
the parties :
"Mr. O. II. Browning contributes
to tho li'iund Table a curious narra
tive concerning tho early carocrof this
famous French soldier, which differs
materially from the current biogra
phies. According to Mr. Browning's
story, Marshul Ney's proper name was
Michael Rodolph. lie was a captain
in General Wayne's army in the war
with the Indians. His career was
marked by the most daring deeds of
valor, and no was called among the
soldiers by the last title Napoleon
ever gave bim the "Bravest of the
Brave." Captain Michael Rodolph
was yonng and fiery, and on ono occa
sion feeling himself insulted dy Gen.
Wayne, he challenged him. General
Wayne reported bis insubordinato con
duct to the government, and General
Washington struck his name from tho
army list. Rodolph then turned his
attention to farming on L'lk creek,
near Klkton, Md., and possessing him
self of a small vessel, he traded in to
bacco to the West Indies. Such a
restless nature, could not be satisfied
with so prosaic a pursuit. Having
unexpectedly put back from one of his
trips, he found his wife engaged in a
suspicious affair with another mun.
Without saying a word to any ono, be
left ber and her childercn in peaceable
possession of bis rival, returned to his
vessel, made sail, and never returned.
".M. I inckney, then our Minister in
Franco recognized him shortly after
wards, under his new name, in a
review in the Champ do Mars: and
Mr. Browning says 'his friends in
Maryland carry out tho theory of the
identity of the two men, by supposing
that Rodolph proceeded to Bordeaux
with his cargo, sold his vessel, estab
lished a shop, retailed his tuLacco ;
and with his daring military taste and
genius, enlisted in tho army ol the
revolution as a common soldier, from
which his general superiority nnd the
technical knowledgo acquired under
General nj-ne soon raised bim.
"Tho wife of Rodolph married again
after her husband's desertion, and set
tled in the obscuro town of Brunswick,
in Georgia ; and it is a noticeable fact
that some years ago, young Ney
Count Ney, who was for some years
French charge at Rio do Janeiro, well
known to manv officers of our navy
visited the t'nited States, and sot
out immediately after his arrival in
Now York for that place and remain
ed several weeks in the neighborhood
as tbe guest of the Rodolph family,
who were independent and respectable
farmors, but not people likely to ro
ceive a visit from Count Ney, under
ordinary circumstances. Altogether,
this is a most romantic tory, and
Count Ney will do the world a great
service by disclosing the facts in his
poscssion regarding it as Mr. Brown
ing earnestly calls upon him to do."
Sometime. It is a sweet, sweet
song, flowing to and fro among the
topmost boughs of the heart, and fills
the whole air with such joy and glad
ness as tho songs of birds do when the
summer morning comes out of the
darkness, and the day is born on the
mountains. We have all our posses
sions in the future, which wo call
"Sometime." Bountiful flowers and
sweet singing birds are thero, only
our hands seldom grasp the one, or
our ears hear, except in faint, far off
strains, the other. But oh, reader, be
of good cheer, for lo all tho good thero
is a golden "Sometime!" When the
bills nnd villeys of time are all passed,
when the wear and fever, tho disap
pointment and the sorrow of life are
over, then there is the peace and the
rest appointed of God. Oh, homcstoad
over whose blessed roof fitlls no shad
ow even of clouds, across whoso thresh
old the voice of sorrow is novcr
heard ; but upon tho eternal hills, and
standing with thy spires and pinnacles
of celestial beauly among tho palm
trees of the city on high, those who
love God shall rest under thy shadows,
where thero ia no more sorrow, nor
pain, nor the sound of weeping.

Satuupat Nioht. Somebody gets
off the following beautiful paragraph
on the closing night of tho week.
There is a volume of truth in it :
Saturday night makes the people
human, sets their hearts to beating
softly, as they used to do before the
world turned them into war drum!
and jarred them to pieces with taloos.
Tho ledger closes with a clash ; the
iron door vaullaoome to with a bang;
up go the shutters with a will ; cliuK
goes tho key in the lock. It is Satur
day night, and business breathes free
again. Homeward ho ! The door
Ihut has been ajar all week gently
closes behind him ; tho world is shut
out. Shutout? Shut in, then rather.

individual, a resident ot the Third
Ward, a clever fellow, and somewhat
of a wag, on Saturday evening indul
ged in too much "benzino"aud became
"Boa sick," and whiio making tracks
for homo, was obliged to anchor on a
street corner and "heave." Holding
on to a lamp post, ho poured forth a
"trcmenjtis cascade, learful to behold."
A sympathising friend passing, feel
inly inquired: "Hello, what's the mat
tcr, aro you sick ?" The victim turned
upon bim a look in which was concen
trated a perfect avalanche of reproach
ful contempt, and blurted out in the
intervals between his copious nplieav
ings, "D'ye s-e p-o-o-s-e I I'm d-0-doin'

A Great Sinner. An old negro
named 1'cto was very much troubled
about bis sins. Perceiving him one
day with a very downcast losk, bis
master asked him the causo. "But,
Pete," said bis mnslcr, "vou are fool
ish to take it so much to 'heart. You
never see mc troubled about my sins."

At n examination in one of oar

the reply. "How is Congress divided ?"
was tho next question. But the little
girl to whom it was put failed to an
swer it. Another liulo girl in the
class raised np her hand indicating
that she could answer it. "Well," said
the examiner, "Miss Sallie, what do
you say iho division is ?" Instantly,
tho answer came : "Civilitcd, half
civilized, and savage." Tho young
lady was perfectly right.
