. A iserson of good standing in community,
Who lai - & claim not only - tqq a moral, but a re-•
ligionii:haracter ; was visiting in a large town
on th„Hudson river, about midway between
New red: and Albany. This person owed
n.elergi'man, living in New Haven, Connecti
cut,. ipi. sum of one hundred dollars; and
one d'ey he called at the house
ciergs:, , man olltis acquaintance in, the town •
first mentioned, and requested to be allowed •
, the privilege of writing a letter to his clerical
crediting, in which the ,sum due that gentle ,
than ira, to be inclosed. Writing materials
were urnished . , and he prepared the letter in
the stciS of his obliging friend, and-in his.
Afti l ,l,r he tad 'finished
_writing it, he said to

They; then-went, to. the past office, (which .
was u'irectly opposite the bank,) and after

' ThiOlict was apparently accounted for by
a tiosts#ipt, written in a heavy, rude hand,
different: from the - .body
.of the letter, and
- re.idin4 as follows: - '

Notwithstanding these ",appearances, there
wereircumstanses strongly Conflicting with
the supposition: that the 14tter e had been ix&
btxl." • The postscript :was an unnatural affair,
for no one guilty of opening a letter for - .the
phrkose pf appropriating its contents, WOuld
stop to write an explanatory 'postscript, es
pecially as such a.eourse would only increase
the chances oftis own sieteetion v • and , in the
present inStartee, there had been no delay of
the letter to allow such an addition. -
,Bfr. a visit to', the"office where the letter
was : mailed, .the - agenfkascertained that it
malt havO left ' " immediately .. after being de
posited,l•and the advanced age and the excel-'
lenticharaeter.of the postmaster, who made
up the Mail on that 'occasion, entirely cut off
_suspicion hi that quarter.. ‘.. - •
An interview was then held with the eler
ni Who Witnessed the mai ling of the-let
ter, 6nd from him were obtained- the facts
already stated. • i Gincerning . the, writing' of
the document, and' its deposit, inf the letter
box ;in a perfect Mate, after the money had
been inclosed, - he Was ready
.and willing to
make oath, and had he been called- upon he
wou d have done.so in all sincerity and hon
est):, I . • • . . ,1 -
I a reply to , :an inquir, -whether he-used
more than one 4 *ortiof fetter paper, he inform
' ed • the that he had had but tine sort in his
stud , for several iiionths, and at my request,
imm . , iately brought in several sheets for it
A nparison of
.this with:the • sheet: upon .
which the rife <I epistle had been written,
show that the latter a totally different
artiefe from the first. - The shape and design
of the stamp, the size of the sheet, and the
shade. of the paper, were all - unlike; More
ove:the. Wafers used at the bank, where the ,
handed dollar note - was obtained,' and the
lett, eenta Ming it ,sealed, were very dissim
ilar tb either of those which appeared upon",
the ' post buy ' letter,.
Fr i ont the 'consideration of all these facts,
1 I wai,satisfied that a gross and contemptible
fraed i had been perpetrated by the Writer of
the httter, and lust no. time in proeetslin c , to
the 111/age where that personage lived'. I
callef upon the. postmaster; and made some
inquities r:lt afire to. the character and pecuni
. eirettinstances of the person in , question.
From the replies Made, it appeared,:as•l hive
already stated, that his reputation in the com
, inun4y - was good. - . i
- I thought it might be. possible t1e , ,... 1 .1.., in - so
stnali a place, 1 could ascertain -whether be
had Ihtely Passed -ti hundred dollar note, -as
lie would have been likely.to have done, if it.
I was r..e that he had not inclosed •‘tt •in the
t New_ haven letter. . .
Ca ling at the store which recei'ed most.
of his custom, I introduced myself to the pro-
Pricttir, made a confident of filth to some ex
-teat, land learned that the very next (tay after
that i n which the aforesaid letter wai mailed,
its at thor Offered him, in -payment for'a bar
rel o flour., a hundred dollarnote Aon the
" bank from - which a bill of the like - &nomi
nation had been obtained,. as before Mention
ed; h exchange for the `small trash.' The
:merchant could not then change it, but sent
tle . flqpr, and changed a bill which bg sup
poseik to be the•sam l e a few days afterivard.
Arined *with thes i e irresistible. tuts, I pro
• cveded.to call On the ad venturous deceiver of
the clergy, whn, had attempted to snake one
member ofsthat- hOcli second his intention to
cheat pnother. ' Insatiate archer? could, not
one suffice?' - ' \

ey in that New Hashii letter; you, offered it
the dny after' you prinended to mail it, at Mr.
C.'s store. You seel've found out' all about
it, sot hope you will not deny thtl truth , in
the rontter. .. ,
I Life n gave him hi's choice, to send the hun
dred dollars promptly to his New 'Haven cor
respoiiident, or allow- me to prove, ' l in a pub
lic manner. the facts in my posses-nom
Being thus hoed pressed, and finding him
self cornered, be confessed that hei had pre
paredi-the letter which was received at New-
Haven --postscript, double wafer 4., and all,
beforn he left home,
and that, while crossing
the stimt from the bank to the p 214. office, he
substituted this for the one he wrsite* in the
elefolmitn's study !" He promisd to send.
Abe money, and. pretended that he tlad sufri-r
-ed seicrely in his feeling's on seconnt of the
dishonest act.. • i
Th re is no United States law iproeiding
for th puni=hment of such an offence; but
publi opinion and private conscience make
nicer.distinetions:than the law can do, and
often ;mete out a well-deserved salty to
those r l / 4 vhol elude the less subtle ministers of

In the Presentinstanee, the g sto•
ry wf4s made publicby direction of the Post
m'astef. General ; and the auther of the trick,
unable. to ;sustain the indignation and con
temptlof the community in . which: he `lived,'
was c9mpelled to Make a hasty retreat from
that part of the country t .
Here is an incident of another nature, and
more, dramatic, perhaps, than • the last:
