the jailer town ditch Which was navigable,

; The authbrities gladly avail:A theMselves
of this opportunity to delay the. torture. It
sgemed, at first sight, no mere invention of
te prisoner's friends. A - company corn men d -.

ri n : a corporal of that name had served in
it; but had disappeared or . deserted , four
weeks back, Till then, all inquires after him
hid been useless. The police also found that
the corporal had disappeared on the very
night before the robbery was 'made known.—
A connection ,between the two facts appeared
evident. A =new divert', however, des
; troyed this conclusion.' The letter froin Rot
terdam was laid before the commanding, kiffi
ctir, and he declared it at first sight a forgery.
The band writing was not Bhuler's ; all 'phis
c4misides asserted it, and' several old Cornpa

written, proved it, to the satisfaction'of 'the
jUdge. Consequently, the.letter , was; nothing
niore than a trick ofsome friend or *deem
pike of the' Blue Dragoon to liberate him
from the torture.. This 'was the preval l ent
oinion, When two new and very importimt

no connection together, nor were their,

transported his .bales and heavier- goods.—
This beat 'was generally fastened behind 'the
hOuse, ;near his warehouse', rich .,waselose
toj the town ditch. He had a large quantity
of casks to deliver at that time; and could
riot ipare it. Isaac, however, begged. him
very' earnestly, and stated he only 'wanted
t e boat for a couple of nights, and would re

inquiring why he wanted it particularly at

Owner of the boat asked.' " WhO -leaves his

liith a cunning smile, , that the people' were
bankrupts and ' were going. to,-" shoot the

fuked the use 'of hi.A boat., The carpenter,
luisiever, quickly said that he had' been in

told him his real object,: for fear he might
suit like his boat dirtied. H 6 at length yield

and lent him the boat on condition that; he

I penter-kept his word' faithfully. When:
hi went to his warehouse the, - next Itilf;
at/ an early hour, he saw the carpenter; and
MI; apprentice just. fastening the beat,. It
snuck him directly that they had no nem or
flailing implements.' • He examined the - beet,
and was still More stirprised at finding it dry
and clean inside. He i, d therefore, detiteted
th carpenter in a false.aood. In the boat he
piked up a parcel, consisting of two silver
foilta wrapped in pa r." The carpenter's
