A STORY OF CRIME.
About twenty years ago. the health
of Mr. Edward L ,an English cler- j
gyman, being in a precarious condi
tion, a moral and physical nature —
thatgrave English malady which comes
we know not how or why —he decided
to cross the channel, and seek under a
milder sky the pure air and sunshine
which he needed.
One fir.eday he embarked for France,
He stopped some days at Rouen. —
Every morning he made a little trip in
the.suburbs, carrying under his arm a
volume of Dante. One afternoon ho
climbed 'Mount Sui'nt Catharine, and
seating himself on the grass, began to
run over some pages of the Divine
Comedia. At this moment, a stran
ger, who had also climbed the hill, ap
proached him, and asked him in En
glish, with the greatest courtesj-, per
mission to converse with him a mo
4 1 wish to perfect myself in your
language', said he smilingly, 4 and I
seize the opportunity to talk every
time I meet an Englishman.'
They talked a little about every
thing —the weather. Dante, religion
and politics. The Frenchman was well
instructed and.very amiable. He in
formed Mr. L that he was one of
the Physicians of Rouen. Learning
this, tlx? young minister related his
case to him and asked his advice.
The doctor examined him carefully
and wrote him a prescription. They
descended together to Rouen, where
they separated, one to go and pay his
visits to his patients, the othpr tp enter
an apothecary shop.
Next day Mj. Edward found himself
better; the doctor's prescription hud
done him much good. He had gained
more strength in one hour than during
a month of previous treatment.
Ho wished to thank the doctor, and
reproached himself besides with hav- j
ing offered him nothing in return for
his consultation. He went again in- j
stiuctively to Mount Saint Catharine. |
A moment after he was rejoined by the
Frenchman. They both burst out in
joyous laughter, and pressed each oth
er's hands as though they were old
4 You have saved my life, doctor,'
said Mr. Edward warmly.
Then he touched timidly the ques
tion of money The doctor closed his
mouth at the first word; declaring
himself amply remunerated by the suc
cess of his prescription and the joy of
his patient. .. ;
' Doctor.' said Mr. Edward,' I am an
Englishman, and consequently I.do not
like the weight of an obligation ; can I
not be of use to you in some way ? 1
start to-morrow at 1 o'clock in the
morning, and I am at your servico.'
After a moment's reflection, the doc
i tor said :
4 No—it would be an abuse of your
: good nature.'
The Englishman pressed him soper
j severingly that the doctor finally said:
'I have many patients under treat
ment at my house. Among them is a
very rich demoiselle, whoso ideas area
i little deranged. 1 think I shall sue
! ceed in saving her. Unfortunately,
' since about a month she has it in her
! head to return to Paris. I have em
ployed all means to dissuade her, hut
without suecess. 1 see that there will
be neither truce nor repose until her
caprice is salistied. 1 have put otf the

me to leave, were it even for a single
Edward L saw that he had beon
a little too fast. But how could he
draw back now?
4 Diable,' said he, 'a demoiselle, and
crazy in the bargain.'
•Never mind that,' said the doctor,
smiling; ' this demoiselle is in her for
ty-sixth spring, and furthermore your
word crazy is per' -ys a little exaggo
rated. In any case, her madness, if
madness it is, is < 1 the mildest form

' Well, so be it! So at one o'clock in
4 Porhaps yes, perhaps no ; the hour
is a little material. lam sure that the
demoiselle will be ready.'
While they were talking thus they
reached the gates of the city. Before
separating, the doctor handed his card
to Edward L .
'And now au rovoir till to morrow
morning, or perhaps adieu ; it is quite
possible that we shall not see each
other again.' Mr. L watched the
departing doctor with an embarrassed
air. The idea of taking a mad woman
to Paris was not a very smiling one.
Ue glanced at the card and read : Doc
tor" de La Belle, rue Antoine, No. 12.
Arrived at the hotel, he asked the
waiter if ho knew M. de La Belle.
' He is one of the best physicians in
At one o'clock in the morning Mr.
L. was promenading anxiously in tbe
waiting room of the depot. M. de La
Belle did not appear The English
minister was rubbing his hands with a
great sigh of satisfaction, when he felt
himself touched on the shoulder. It
was the doctor. A lady dressed in
black was seated on the bench.
4 Here,' said the doctor, 4 is Made
moiselle's purse —perhaps she may
need something; here is her ticket also,
which you will have the goodness to
show to the employee. I telegraphed
last ovening, to her relatives, begging
them to send a carriage to the train
when it arrived. I have told you that
she is gentle as a dove—if she should
have a moment of weakness, you have
only to give her a lump of sugar moist
ened with two drops of this syrup.'
During this litre ho had lifted the
demoiselle somewhat roughly into the
car. 'Finally the bell rang, the minis
ter entered the coupe, coming out
again as soon, exclaiming—
-4 What a strong odor there is in
4 It is a bottle of Cologne which I
broke in helping Mademoiselle to enter
The train started; Mr. L. tried to
open conversation, but seeing that she
did not reply, he arranged himself for
a nap. Ho 'awoke several times;' tin

her face, remained motionless. At last
they reached Paris.

4 be good enough to wait a moment; I
will go.and call the coachman who is

He looked a long while, but in vain.
Ho could tind no one who had come
for demoiselle from Rouen. He re
turned, much vexed to the demoiselle,
when to his great stupefaction,* he
saw an anxious crowd surrounding his
car. He advanced.
4 Is it you who came in this coup?'
demanded a policeman
4 I)o you know that the lady is dead?
It is more than four hours since she
ceased to live. You have poisoned her
with prussic acid !'
The clergyman was horror struck
He sought to disculpate himself with
all the energy of an honest man, but
his story sounded like a talc, it was so
improbable. They searched him, and
found upon him the lady's purse, and

feet. He did not understand the mys
tery at first, but it was explained to '
him afterwards. At Xhe time he was j
committed, between Rouen and Paris,
a white dog, without an owner had
been found in the former city. The
police sent him to Paris ut once. On
the'day of which we are speaking two
lost dogs were advertised on the fourth
page of the journals, one at Vangiriad,
the other at Passy. It was to those
places that Mr. L went with offi
Hut it was in vain. Days passed
away thus; nothing was discovered.
One evening the agent of the police
told him to accompany him to a ball
and gave him a costume of an officer
of Spahecs (Turkish horse soldier.) —
The clergyman made some objections,
but was .obliged to yield. The car
riage deposited them at the foot of a
staircase of a very fine hotel, where
they were receiveaby footmen. There
was a grand hall that night, and the
saloon was tilled with persons whoap ;

names of the guests as announced by

advanced hour without having seen
Another week passed.
The following Saturday ho went to
the ball again at the same house. M.
de F , the son of the mistress of the
house came at once to converse with
him, and drew him behind the large
curtains of a window of the saloon.
Mr. L soon heard the voice of
the agent of police —who was in citi
zens' dress i.n conversation with
auoiher person.. They talked of the
chase. After some minutes' conversa
tion, during which Count F , kept
his eye fixed on Mr. IJ who re
mained impassible, the couple went
away. A moment after he heard the
sound of the agert's voice anew.
> Ah! here you are at last, M. de
Bo 1' said he, 4 it's a long time since
we have seen )ou !'
The person addressed had no sooner
pronounced the first word of his phrase
than Mr. L bounded in his .place
behind the curtain.
4 lt is him! it is him ! it is the un
known of Rouen I'
'Be still!' said M. de F , 4 or your
imprudence will spoil all.'
An instant afterwards they were
joined by the agent of police.

above all make no movement.'
One o'clock in the morning struck at
last Mr. L parted the curtains a
little, and his eye of tire was fixed upon
the door of the dining saloon. His
whole body trembled as if traversed
by an electric shock. All at once his
crisped hand directed itself invo'unta
rily toward a man who 'was convers
ing with a young lady; it was indeed
the stranger of itouen. The agent of
police was obliged to seize L around

'Y'ou are mad !' said M. do Bo ,

A Section of the Harlem Rail
road Sunk In a tlarsli.
The residents of Dutchess county
living along the line of the Harlem
Railroad, says the Poughkeepsie Ea
gle, have had a subject of unusual in
terest to discuss for a few days past,
which was nothing more nor less than
the sudden sinking, to the depth of
twenty feet, of about forty rods of the
Harlem Railroad " track, crossing a
swamp near the ice-houses between
South Denver and Rawling. The sin
gular event occurred on Friday last,
and, as ma}' be supposed, it created
the greatest .wonderment among the
population for miles around. This
marsh is soft and yielding to a great
depth, and the greatest difficulty was
experienced in laying the track across
it. It has sunk once before, shortly
after the road was built.
All efforts to make a tirm foundation
for the track aUthis place have here
tofore failed. Piles have been driven
to a great depth, but without reaching
solid ground, and the only way a foun
dation could be made, was by tilling it
with trees and brush. A freight train
passed over this spot but a few hours
previous, and it was noticed at that
time that the track bent beneath the
pressure, to the depth of nearly two
teet. Several large cattle trains were
obliged to put back to Albany in con
sequence of this break. Passenger
trains transfer their passengers and
baggage to trains in waiting on the op
posite side, the passengers reaching
the ears by a walk of a quarter of a
mile across the swamp on'planks. On
Saturday night last, while the freight
of a passenger train was being trans
terred, a fcrunk belonging to a lady
passenger, containing SIOOO, was sto

Tlie Metric System.
The system of weights and measures
in use in the United is in a high
degree perplexing and inconvenient.
Tlie decimal system is the simplest and
most beautilul over devised; our cur
rency system is coniormedto it; why,
then, may not our weights and meas
ures be based upon 1 he same principle?
France adopted a system of weights
and measures founded upon the deci
mal system of rotation, as long ago as
1795. This system has since been
adopted by Italy, Spain, Portugal,
many parts of Spauish America, Bel
gium, Holland, and portions of Germa
ny and Austria. In 1804, an act was
passed by the Parliament of England,
permitting its use throughout the Uni
ted Kingdom wherever parties should
agree to use it. Scientific men in this
country have long advocated the in
troduction of the metric system ; ac
cordingly Congress, on the 27th of last
July, passed an act which, though
it does not make the system compulso
ry, establishes it as legal.
The system is so simple that a school
boy can easily master it in a few days,
while months—often whole terms —are
required to master the perplexities, in
congruities, and inconsistencies of the
existing system of weights and meas
ures The perplexities of the common

A writer in the New Yoik Tribune
to whom we are indebted for many of
the tacts contained in this article, re
marks : The present system has but
one advantage—it is established. To
the metric system there is but one ob
jection—it is not in use. But it is not
an experiment. In France it is popu
lar, and in the markets and stores meat
and cloth are sold by the metre and

I he unit of length in the metric sys
tem is. the ten millionth part ot the
distance from the equator to the polos,
or 39-37 inches in length. A rod 39
3-8 inches long is very nearly a metre.
Teachers would do well to introduce
specimens of the metre into their
schools. Let them have a lew lessons
in the metric system in their institutes
and then teach it to their pupils It
will not soon bo universally used, yet
the day will surely come when it will
entirely displace our present system.
In the October number of the School
Journal, there are two articles on this
subject, one from the pen of Professor
Brooks, oi Millersville, the other cop
