Tux .name Of Comae lo! Peter.tfeCulvej!
is as well known 'to 'the New*York bar and
judiciary as isl Voorbee's Jest edition of the
Code, or Story of; - Contra ta. There are many -
little epfspdes in his profwisional career which,
for raciness ofl outline, ritknesti in 'the filling
up atur generril 'grouping*, would well rival In
comicality the' - most' side-splitting narration
of Lover and Lever. . • . s .
sPeter, as . hit last name indicates, is a nati Ve
of that "gem of the - say" which prrduced a
G,attan and W.Gurran; but at the time of
the blippening of thri incidents which 1 ant
about to, relate, bad resided in New York a
number of years, where he 'bad taken; as he
expressed ,it,.:" - howly °raters ) " , or, in,other
words had beeimulmitted to the practice of
the law. . -
Some years agp there lived in the vicinity
of the . : City lIL,II a highly respectable Ger
man-born gentlemen, a citizen of - long mind
tog, whom; for slmrtners,laill call Limherg
lier. Ile had,,by assiduity- and atteution to
business, combined with he most,scruputous
ly honorable and, fair sealing, amassed a
handsome property and-quired an enviable
reputation, B 9 building in which ;
he con - ducted his mercanile atlairs, his store
being on- the troutid fl or, and the upper
stories—three in nurnber*beiog let to, va
rious tenants Fwlio had la means of- access
through a first lam sille.ban, or-passage,

: friend, "Peter- MX IVey, Counsellor at

cate, dc., die., 1re..," as- bi- sign said, -became
the, lessee for the term of him year from that
day, of - what be grandiloquently called a
"se • of oftities4" on the second floor of Mr.:

one undyed and seventy-five dollars, pai-a:

• The relation 1 of hurdle d and tenant was
mutually pietisfng to the contracting partiei
fOr the -first 4iree mon bs •of the demised

liquors and wines on his premises an the first
floor, WAS frequently Waited upon by " Pother"
and'itiend, and several j "smiles"
weald pass between . them,),which would re
sult In a slight elevatihn of 'Petees..self
esteem, and wh i ch also tended to elevate his
-personal 'steam to a limitii•and - yet proper
extent._ The first of august—the meal day
di' a new quarter—which as to put an end
to 'this happy interchange of sentiment and ,
feeling at sength arrived; .' Old Limbergher,
i it the,expiratien of three .ir four - days after
the close C 4 the, first quarter, noticed that
Peter had neglected- to visit him as usual
'since the cerningin of the month. Ile also
remembered that Are first ; instalment of tiro
'rent, was then pus and paYable, and -deter
'mined to seek a busipess interview with the
Counsellor. T9 l etiecithat object, he frequent
ly,•dnirng the ; business portion of the day,
,when be could - be spared f• active Alai',
stationed himself where) ho could
mand a view of the np-stitirs enirance,
and awaited Peter's in coming or
as the case might be. So well-timed, how - -
1 ever/were the Counsellor's visit to his "suite"
of rooms, that 'several daYs elapsed before
Mr. Limberghei. succeeded, in _meeting his
Mina,. and that even happened when he was
'coming out, fort-to use thti Couusellofs ex
