NOT A GHOST STORY.
HY JCDOK CLAKK.
GEORGE MAULEY having none
but fashionable vices, was not what
the world calls vicious. JIo drank with

lie had recently conic into possession
of a handsome fortune, and was spending
his first winter, and a good deal of mon
ey, in New Orleans. Among others
whoso acquaintance- ho formed, wits a
young Frenchman, a few years his senior,
named Antoine Giraud, between whom
and himself a similarity of tnsto soon
caused an especial intimacy to spring up.
Young Giraud was perfectly acquainted
with the city and its ways, and was noth
ing loth to place his knowledge at his
friend's disposal. When the theater and
opera grew tiresome, as they did at last,
and masked balls and wino simpers began
to lose their zest, fresh excitement was
sought and found in those temples wh?i'o
the fickle goddess nightly distributes her
'bullets and rewards" without troubling
herself whether or tint, they are received
" with equal thanks."
Giraud played persistently against his
friend. Marley thought it was bceause
they were friends. ' There was another
reason perhaps. However, if money was
the Frenchman's object, lie Was signally
disappointed, for ho was unit' jnnly unsuc
cessful. Though evidently chagrined at
his losses he seemed to bear them with
cquinitnity, returning each night to tho
encounter, led by the blind hope that has
lured so many to destruction, that luck,
at last, must change.
One night their play ran unusually
high. Marley was flushed with wine,
vvlnle the expression of las companion s
face betokened a still deeper excitement.
With a nervously trembling hand, the
latter deposited on tho table a sum larger
than any ho had yet risked. It was
promptly covered by his adversary.
" This time I have won !" cried Giraud,
eagerly, throwing dowc his cards.
"Not so fast!" exekimod the other;
'' your hand is almost invincible, but this
It was true; the Frenchman had lost
" Buined !" ho muttered to himself be
tween his clenched teeth; and alter glar
ing a moment. 'ierccly at tho window, he
rose hastily from the table.
" Come, George," he said with a forced
laugh, " it is time to go now ;"' and tak
ing his friend's arm the two left the place
It was past midnight and tho streets
were almost deserted, when a drowsy
watchman pacing his accustomed round
came suddenly on a scene that startled
him into life, and caused him to signal
for asskvnnce, which happily proved to
be at hand.
A man was stooping over the prostrate
form of another. At tho sound of ap
proaching footsteps ho raised himself,
recoiling quickly as if by .flight. But the
summoned help was already on the spot,
and the fugitive was intercepted. In his
hand he held a bloody dagger, and at his
feet lay the inanimate body of the victim
still warm and bleeding.
On finding himself in tho hands of tho
officers, the prisoner's self possession en
tirely forsook him. Ili answers were so
incoherent as to be wholly unintelligible.
Nothing could be gained by questioning
him in his present condition, and ho was
at once taken to the nearest station house
and locked up.
The body was conveyed to tho Morgue,
where on the following day, it was identi
fied as that of George Marley.
At the inquest, Giraud testified to hav
ing accompanied his friend as far as their
way lay in common, and that they had
then separated for the purposo of going
to their respective lodgings. Tho facts
sworn to by tho policeman were thoso al
ready stated. If tho crime had been
ootnmitted with a view to robbery, the
perpetrator had been interrupted before
accomplishing his object, for tho murder
ed man's watch and pocket-book wers
found on his person unmolested, and
nothing identified as his was discovered
in tho prisoner's possession.
Eugene Aubrey, the person accused of
tho atrocious deed, was a young artisan
of hitherto unblemished character, and
tho only child and solo support of his
widowed mother. Tho day after his ar
rest ho gave an explanation of the cir
cumstances against him, which, had it
been given at once, might have received
credence. As it was, it was looked upon
at cunning afterthought.
Ilia story was this :
Ho had boon spending tho evening
and so much ho was able to prove iu a
visit to a young girl to whom he was be
trothed. On his return two men, walk
ing arm in arm, turned into the street
before him, continuing in the same direc
tion as himself, but some distance in ad
vance. Suddenly one of them disen
gaged his arm and dealt his companion a
swift blow with soiiKJ instrument, which,
as it descended, gleamed iu the gaslight
like the blade of a weapon. The one
stricken reeled and fell, uttering a faint
cry. The other glanced hastily around,
and seeing tho prisoner rapidly approach
ing, turned and fled. When the latter
reached the body, life was distinct, lie
had just withdrawn tho weapon, which
had been left in the wound, and was just
about to run or call for help, when lie
was apprehended as already stated.
But a prisoner's statement, though all
powerful against him goes but a little way
in exculpation. A verdict of "willful
murder" against Eugene Aubrey was re
turned by the coroner's jury, and he was
fully committed for trial.
It was at this stage of the case I re
tained for the defence. The case seemeU
hopeless enough. On the final trial, the
only facts in evidence would be those
which told so damningly against the pris
oner. His own statement, which the
coroner had allowed to be received, would
be entirely excluded. But ono result
could reasonably bo anticipated.
The poor woman never doubted her
son's innocence. "He was always so
good and gentle," she said. Still less
would it hnve been possiblo to create a
suspicion in the mind of her who loved
him with a'l the blind devotion of a young
an! trusting soul. "I know he is not
guilty," she would again and again reit
erate ; " when he left me that night, with
words so tender ami loving, there could
have been no murder iu his heart.
It was impossible to witness a faith so
pure and steadfast without feeling its in
fluence. The young man's statement if
true, perfectly reconciled every fact with
his innocence; and, after all, less weight
was tlue to Ins lust confusion and failure
to explain the circumstances than was
generally supposed. A man brought
suddenly face to face with an appalling
crime, and while st ill staggering under
the shock, accused of its commission,
may well lose his presence of mind. Be
fore, saying ho looks and acts guiltily,
wouldn't it bo well to bo' quite
sure -we know how an innoceet man would
look and act in the like case ?
The day of trial came. I had no wit
nesses, save a few to previous good char
acter. I had determined to risk on a
stroke, tho wi-di.ni or foliy of which
could only be determined by tho event.
Giraud was the first witness called.
lie gave his evidence with great precis
ion and clearness. I cross examined him
very briefly, and he had just quitted the
stand, when, as if transfixed by some in
stantaneous shock, he stood the very im
personation of terror. His hair literally
stood on end. His eyes were riveted on
a figure advancing towards him, with a
slow and measured tread. Jt icon the ex
act imwjf! of the murdered man his
face all jwle and ghastly as when he lay
in hia coffin. That such a visitor was
not of this world was tho common feeling
even of those who had never seen Mar
ley, and who knew not whoso was tho
ghostly form thus mysteriously revealed.
" Merciful God !" shrieked rather than
articulated tho frightened wretch who
had just steeped bin soul in perjury
against another's life, " but unchain my
senses from this horrible vision, and let
man's weightiest condemnation fall unon
Then falling on his knees, in disjoint
ed and broken sentences, he poured forth
a confession that fully justified tho belief
I had for some time entertained, that ho,
Giraud, and not my client, was tho real
And now reader, don't throw away this
paper with a sneer at " ghost stories," till
you find out whether I have been telling
one or not.
I had a friend, a young actor, who, if
living to-day, would be the brightest star
on tho American boards. Ilia power of
imitation was wonderful. Ilo knew and
had seen Marley. A week's practice
inado him perfect in tho part ho was to
perforin, and it was he, and no ghost that
appeared, as pre-arranged between us at
the critical moment I had read :

Tho following testimonies and experi
ences, not of the clergy but of statesmen,
philosophers, and men ot wide reputation
in legal, medical, literary and commercial
life, bearing on a subject attracting con
siderable attentiou at the present time
may not be uninteresting to our readers:
" If Sunday had not been observed as
a day of rest during the last three centu
ries, I have not the smallest doubt that
we should have been at this moment a
poorer and le.s civilized Ticonle than we
are." Lord Macauley.
" There is no religion without worship,
or no worship without the Subhath."
" Tho more faithfully I apply myself
to the duties of the Lord's day, tho more
happy and successful is my business du
ring the week. Sir Matthew Hale.
" A corruption of morals usually fol
lows a profanation of tho Sabbath."
" The Sabbath as a political institution
is of inestimable value, independently of
Us claim to divine authority. Adam
" Sunday is a day of account, and a
candid account every seventh day is the
best preparation for the great day of ac
count." Lord Karnes.
" I can truly declare that to mo the
Sabbath has been invaluable." William
" Give the world half of Sunday, anil
you will find religion has no strong hold
of the other." Sir Walter Scott.
" Where there is no Christian Sabbath,
there is no Christian morality; and with
out this, free institutions cannot long be
sustained.' Justice John McLean.
" Tho longer I live tho more highly do
I estimate the Christian Sabbath, and the
more grateful do L feel toward those who
impress its importance on the communi
ty." Daniel Webster.
Iu a general i rJer, issued November
15, l'rcsidcut Lincoln commanded
that " Sunday labor in the army and na
vy be reduced to the measure of strict
necessity. The dieipliuc and character
of the National forces should not suffer,
nor the cause they defend bo imperiled
by the profanation of the day or name of
tho Most High.
Attorney General Bates, of tho Cabi
net, wrote: " The religious character of
an institution so ancient, so sacred, so
lawful and so necessary to the peace and
comfort and the respectability of society,
ought alone to be sufficient for its protec
tion ; but that failing, surely tho laws of
the laud made for its account ought to bo
tis strictly enforced as tho laws for the
protection of person and property. If
the Sunday laws be neglected or despised
the laws of person and property will soon
share their fate and bo equally disregard
ed." " Tho Sabbath must be observed as a
day of rest. This I do not state as an
opinion, but knowing that it has its foun
dation upon a law in man's nature as fix
ed as that he must take food or die."
Dr. Willard Barker, of New York City.
" As a day of rest I view tho Sabbath
as a day of compensation for tho inade
quate restorative power of the body under
continued labor and excitement. Ono
day in seven, by the bounty of Brovi
dence, is thrown iu as a day of conpensa
tion, to perfect by its reposo the animal
system." John Richard Farre, M. D., of
La Press, 'One of tho great secular
journals of I'aris, has said, " England
owes much of her energy and character
to tho religious keeping of Sunday. Why
cannot France follow her; as the Sabbath
was made for all men, and wo need its
Tho present Lord Chancellor of Eng
glaud stated at a public meeting, " I am
glad to say that Sunday is not yet like a
Continental Sunday. Looking at th
question from tho lowest point of view, it
is the especial duty and interest of work
ing men to discourage all attempts to in
terfere with the seventh day as a day of
rest; for onco let the Parisian system
come into vogue in this country, under
which tho scaffolds of public buildings
were as crowded with workmen on Sun
day as on any other day, and they would
have to work seven days for pay now re
ceived for six.
Pearls are troublesome property.
Unless they are constantly worn or aired
they change color, or crumble to pieces,
so that Mr. Buby, tho Jeweller iu " Loth

red to tho necessity of giving HorGraoe'n
pearls an aunual airing.
