A DETECTIVE'S STORY.
Tho following is a tiuo story, by a late
well-knowu member of tho dotcctivo ser
vice, and, with tho exception of some
named of persons ami places, is given pro
oisoly as ho himself related it :
Late on Friday afternoon, in, tho latter
part of Nov. 18 , I was sent for by the
chief ol tho New York polioi", and was
told thcro was a caso for we. It was a
counterfeiting affair. Notes had been
forged on a Pennsylvania bank ; two men
had been apprehended, and wero in cus
tody. The first, .Springer, had turned
State's evidence on Lis accomplice, who,
according to his account, was tlio priurc
mover in tho business. This man Dan
iel Ilawcsby nanio had transferred the
notes to a third party, of whom nothing
had bcou ascertained except that he was a
young man, wrote a beautiful hand, and
had been in lown tho .Monday before. lie
was tho man I was to catch.
It was sundown when I left tho Super
intendent's office. I had not much to
guide me ; thcro were hundreds of young
men who wrote a beautiful hand, and had
been in town last Monday. Rut 1 did not
trouble myself about whit I did not know ;
I confined myself to what 1 did know.
Upon reflection I thought it probable that
my man had been in intimate relations
with Ilawos fur the last few days prob
ably sinco tho preceding Monday-althotigh
it was not known that ho had been in
Sown siuco that day. lie might not be n
resident in the city ; but I determined to
acek him here since, if lie had not left
town before tho arrest of Springer and
Ilatvcs, ho would not just now run the risk
of Jailing into the hands of tho polico by
going to any railroad station or steamboat
I determined, thercforo,to follow up the
tract of Ilawcs, and thereby, if possible,
strike that of his confederate wliioh was
in fact, all that could bo done.
Hawes was a small broker. IIo lived
in Eighteenth street, and had on office in
lltilived too far up town, I thought, to
go hono ovcry day to his dinner ; ho wont,
then, noat probably, always to tho same
eating house, and ono not far from his
Afto inquiring at several restaurants
near by, I camo to one in Liberty street,
where, tu asking if Air. Ilawcs was in tho
habit of dining there, tho waiter said yes.
"Hav you seen a young man hero with
him late.y 1" I inquired.
"No ; no ono in particular," replied tho
"Ara you sure of it f Come, think."
After siarehing his head for a moment,
ho said :
"Yes, tiera has beeu a young man hero
speaking to him onco or twice.'1
"How dd ho look?"
"Ho wai short, aud had blaok hair ami
'Who is ho? What docs ho do !"
"IIo is c,erk to Mr. L , tho linen
"Whoro does Mr. L live !"
Tho waiter' did not know. Looking in
to a director;, I ascertained his residence
to bo in Four'.ocuth street. Tho stores by
this titno wera closed ; so I went immedi
ately to Mr. h 's house, and asked to
icq him. Ho was at dinner.
"I am sorry to disturb him,'' said I to
tho servant! ".ut I wish to speak to him
a moment on a, matter of importance, and
cannot wait." '
Mr. L came out, evidently annoyed
at the intrusiou.
"Ilavo you sinh a person in your em
ployment!" said I, describing him.
"No, eir ; I havo uot."
"You had suoh a person !"
"I havo uot now."
"Did you dischaigu him 1"
"What business is that of yours 1" ho
asked, rather huffily.
"My name. sir. is 51 , of tho detec
tive polico. I am afteithat fellow that's
all. Tell me, if you phase, why you dis
"Oh, 1 bfg your p'udon," said Mr.
l -. "I took ycu for c-.cof his rascally
associates. I discharged him a week or
tea days ago. IIo was ovcry dissipated,
good. for. nothing allow."
"Was ho your book'kepert '
"No ; ho was a junior clerk."
"Have you any of his hand-writinu
you can show mo I"
IIo fumbled in a sido poekot and drow
out a pocket-book, from which hu took a
memorandum of agrocmont, or some paper
of tho sort, to tho bottom of which a sig
naturo was attached as witnes.
"That's his writing," said ho.
It was a stiff jchooiboy's sorawl.
This was uot my man, then, I apolo
gized to Mr. L for the troublo 1 had
given htm, and withdrow.
Lost time, said I to myself. I am on
the wrong track. I must go back to tho
cating-bouso and begin tho ohaso again
from tho point whero I left off.
1 saw tho same waiter.
"I want you to think again," aid I.
"Try hard to remember whether thcro
never was any other man herewith Ilawcs
on any occasion."
After reflecting for a liltlo whilo,ho said
ho thought ho recollected hi goiug up
stairs not long ago with another man to a
"Did you wait on him yourself nt'thc
timo you speak of?" I asked.
"No j most likely it was Joe Harris."
"Will you send for him, if you please ?"
Joo Harris camo.
"You waited on Mr. Hawes a few days
ago, when ho dined with another gentle
man in a private room up stairs, didn't
"Who was that other man!"
"IIo is a j ouug man who is a clerk in a
livory stable in Sullivan street."
"What are his looks 1"
"lie is tall and light haired."
"Do you know his name !"
"Hu name ia Edgar."
I hurried up to Sullivan street, wont into
the first livery Mablo I cauiu to, inquired
for thu proprietor, aud .asked him' if ho
had a young man in stable of tho name
He said ho had.
"Docs ho keep your books!"
"Ye ho takej orders for me."
"Let me eco some of his hand-wiiting,
if you please."
Ho stopped baok into thooffico and to 'k
from a dask a little order book. I opened
it ; theru were somo orders, hastily wiitton,
no doubt, but in a hand almost liko beau
This was my man I felt nearly cortain
of it. I asked where ho livotl, and was
told with his mother, a widow woman, at
such a number in Hudson street. I star
ted for the place. It wai now nino o'clock.
Arriving at tho house, I ran the bull. It
was answered by a servant girl.
"Does Air. Edgar livo here," I inqui
red. Yes, sir."
"Is ho at homo!"
"When will ho como homo ?"
"I don't know."
"Docsjie sleep here T"
"Sometimes ho docs, and sometimes ho
"WJ)oro is ho likely to bo found? I
should liko to see him."
Sho said flhe really did not know, unless
perhaps it might bo at a billiard saloon
not far off.
I went there. A noisy crowd was
around tho room, stiid 1 closely scrutinized
every faco. No tall, light-haired young
man was there. I asked tho barkeeper if
Mr. Edgar had been thero that evening.
He said no; ho had not seen anything of
him for two or three days. I asked him
if there was any other placo ho know of
that Edgar frequented, and was told ho
wont a good deal to a bowling alloy in
West Rtoailway, near Duano street. Not
much yet, I thought, as I hurried on West
Broadway. Descending a few stops into
a sort of vestibule or offico to tho bowling
"lias Mr. Edgar been hore this cvo
ning?" I inquired of tho man iu attend
ance. "Ho is hero now," was tho reply ; in
the other room, through that door.'1
I passed through tho door indicated into
tho bowling alloy, anil accosted the marker;
"Is Mr. Edgar horo ?"
"IIo has just goue not more1 than fif
tcon minutes ago."
"Do you know whoro ho wont to V

I am on his track now, I said to myself
only fifteen minutes behind him.
I bent by steps to tho theatre, taking
with me a comrade in the polico sorvice,
whom I encountered as I was leaving tho
saloon. Wo bur tied on with tho utmost
rapidity j but. on rcoching tho theatre,
found, to my disgust, what I had alroatly
feared, that the play waa over, and tho
theatre just closed.
"Retter givo it up for to-night," Bftid my
companion ; "wo kuow enough about him
now, and can take up tho search again to
morrow." "It won't do, Clarke," said I; "wo havo
inquired for him at too many places. Stay
I've got a notion ho may be heard of at
fiorno of theso oyster collars hereabouts."
I went into one of them and asked if a
tall young man, with light hair, had bcon
thero that evening.
A tall youug man, with light hair aud
moustache, had como iu from the theatre
with a lady, mid had just left.
I naked my iufoimaut if ho know iho
Sho was a Miss Kcamoy, ho answered.
"What !" I continued, "didn't her sis
ter marry tho aetor Lovisou I"
I "Yes- the tamo porf on,"
"IIo lives in Walker street, near the
Bowery, I bolicvo?"
"Yes, I think so," replied tho man.
1 cpnjidored a moment. Of cotirso no
one could tell mo whom Edgar had gone
to j but I was tolerably certain ho had
gouo homo with tho girl. Whoro sho lived
I did not know ; but I thought it probable
the aetor could toll mo. So wo started
on to Walker street. There aro or wore
at tho timo I speak of scvoral boarding!
houses in Walker strrct. Wo passed ono
or two thrco-story houses with marble
Shall 1 ask along hero ?" said Clark.
"No," I answered; "poor actors don't
board thero we must look for him further
Wo kept on, and after a little while we
found ono that soomcd to mo to bo tho
house wo were looking for. I rank tho
bell and inquired for Mr. Lovison. lib
was gouo to bed. It was now twclvo
o elook. I desired the man that opened
the door to tell him that somebody was
uclow wlio wished to see him immediately
IIo soon returned, saying that Mr. Lcvi-
son was iu bead, aud could not bo disturb
cd ; I must leavo my business, or call
again nest day.
I thought it nccessnry to frighteu him a
little ; so I sent up word that 1 was an
officer of police, and ho must come down
iustantly,or I should go up and fetch him.
In a few moments the actor utado his ap
pearance, terribly Irigliteuetl. Before I
could say any tiling, ho began to pour out
such a flood of questions aud asseverations
that I could uot get a word in.
What did I want with him ? I had
como to the wrong man. IIo haden't been
doing anything, etc., etc.
"1 don't want you," I began
But it was of no usq I could not stop
him; his character was excellent ; any
body would vouch for him ; I oucht to bo
sure what I was about before I rouse poo
plo from thoir beds at midnight, etc , etc.
His huddled words and apprehensive
looks made mo suspect thcro was some
thing wrong with him ; but it was no oon
orrn of mine then. I scizetl him by tho
shoulder, and ordered him to Ue quiet.
'Don't uttor another word," said I, "ex
cept to answer my questions, or I'll carry
you off and lookyou up. I have not como
to arrest you I only want to ask you a
fow questions. Haven't you a sister-iu-law
named Miss Kearney I"
"Yes ; what do vou want with her !"
I am not going to do her any harm. I
only want to know where alio iives."
''Oh, idio lives iu street."
"Do you kuow the number?"
"Goodness, yes ; it is No. 31. I hac
boarded thero myself until only a little
"Yes; I've got a door-latch key aoino

"Look horo, my friend, I am M ,
pratty well knuwn in this town. I have
a good many opportunities, in tho course
of my business, to do pooplo good turns ;
and not a few to do them ill lurus. It is
a convenient vocation to pay oil scores
particularly to persons of your sort. If
you will givo me that key, I'll mako it
worth your while the first chance I havo.
If you dont, you'll bo sorry that's all,"
1 gave him a significant look as I con
cluded. Ho looked mo in tho face a min
ute, as if to see how much I meant, or if I
suspected anything; then he turned and
rati quickly up stares. In a few moments
he camo down and handed mo tho key.
I took it with satisfaction.
'Now said I "you'll havo no objec
tions to telling mo where your sister-in-law's
room incite house is ?"
"Third story, back room, second door
to tho left from tho head of tho stairs."
"Thank you good night."
Wo walked r.tpidly to street, and,
reaching the house, I stopped a moment
lo examine ray pistols, by tho street lamp ,
aud then softly opcucd the door. Clark
and I stepped in, and I shut the door.
Leaving my comradoin tho hall, I crap,
noiselessly up-stairs, and tapped at tho
door of tho room.
"Who is thcro?" called out a woman's
"Open the door I replied, "and I'll tell
you what I want."
"You can't como in I'vo gone to bed."
"Oh, well, I'm a tnatricd man 111 do
you no harm ; but you must let me in, or
I shall force tho door."
After a momeul's delay, the door was
opened by a youug woman in a morning
wrapper, who stood as if waiting for an
explanation to tho intrusion. I passed by
her, and walked up to a youug man sit
ting iu r. low chair by tho liro, and tap
ping him on tho shoulder, said ;
"You are ray prisonor I"
Ho raised his head aud looked up.
"Why, Bill," I exclaimed, is this you f

was you, I'd have caught you iu an hour."
And so I would.
It is ouly necessary to say, furtucr, that

The Coiiscriniiou Act Unconstitutional.
Opinion of Judge Woodward.
Judge Woodward's opinion is au elabor
ate defence of "State Uiahts." Ho de
clares that Congress has no power to draft
tliojbtato militia, though it Iia3 power to
enlist volunteers. IIo think this Conscript
law a poor and inefficient war moasurcs,
ho savs :
In its political boarings, oven more than
its military aspects, it is subversive of the
Constitution ami of thu rights of citizens
that depend upon State authority. A few
thoughts will mako this plain. It is im
possible to study our Slato and Federal
Constitutions, without seeing how mani
festly the ono was designed to guard and
maintain tho personal and social rights of
tho citizons tho other to take caro ol his
Nurture, education, property ,homo,wifo
and children, servants, administration of
goods aud chattels after death, and a grave
yard in which to sleep the sleep ol death,
these arcamomg tho obiccts of State solio
itudo, for the protection of which tho Stato
provided civil authorities, aud back of
them tho posse comilutus and the mili
tary to make tbo civil administration effec
tual. Now, if tho principle be admitted
that Congross may tako away tho State
militia, who does not see that tho ultimate
aud final security of every man's dome3
tio aud personal rights is oudangered. To
tho extent dolcgalcd in tha Constitution
nobody questions the right of Congress to
control the State militia, but if to the
extent to which this enactment goes, tho
States will bo reduced to tho condition of
more counties of a great commonwealth,
and the citizen of the Stale must look to
tho Federal Government for tho enforce
nicut of all his domestic rights as well as
for the regulation of his eternal relations.
e V .
The great vico of the Conscript law is,
that it is fouuded on assumption that Con
gress may tako away, not tho State rights
of the citizen, but the security aud founda
tion of his State rights. And how long is
civil liberty expected to last, after the se
curities of civil liberty are destroyed?
The Constitution of the United States com
mitted tho liberties of tho citizens iu part
to the Federal Coverumont, but expressly
reserved to tho States, and tha people of
the fclates all it did not dolegata, It gave
the General Government a standiug army
but left to the States their militia. Its
purposes in all this balauoius uf powers
were wise and good, but this legislation
disregards these distinctions, aud upturns
ihe whole Bystoru of government when
converts tlio State militia into "nationa.
forces," and claims to use and govern them
as such. 'Pi10 President is not
Commander-in-Chief of the militia, except
when in actual service; and not merely
when they aro ordered into service. Thoy
aro subjected to martial law only, when in
actual scrvico, aud not merely when called
forth before they have oboyed tho call.
Tha acts of 1795 aud other acis on the
subject manifestly contomplatc and recog
nise this distinction. To bring tho militia
within tho meaning of boin in tho actual
scrvico there must be and obedience to
tho call aud some act of organization, mus
tering, rendezvous, or marching douo in
obedience to the call in tho public service.
Story's Con. Law, Vol. !I, Sec. 1203.
If it bo suggestod that this plain rule of
common eenso aud Constitutional law is
not violated by the conscription act be
cause it applies to the "National forces,"
I reply as before that this is only a new
uame for tho militia, and that tho Consti
tutional rights of a citizon aro not Do sac
rificed to an unoonititutional name, When
Judgo Story wa3 endeavoring to mark
with so much distinctness the time at which
tho common law rights of tho citizen
ceased and his liability to military rule be
gau, tho time iu a word when he bo
eamc a soldier why did it not occur to
his fertile mind that Congross could render !
this distinction valueless una unmeaning
by a new momcnclatiiro by calling tho
militia "national forces?" It is not diffi
cult to conccivo how such a suggestion
would have fared had it occurred or been
made to him. But it is difficult in tho
..... -i'.i... .... :,.... .i-.i...
day, to treat so frivolous a fiuegestion
with the diguity and forbearanco the oo-1
casion domantts. 1 havo shown what
rights of perscnal liberty these plaiutiffs in
herited ftom a remote anocstry, and how
thoy are guaranteed to thorn by our con
stitutions, and at what timo they ore to
givj placo to martial law, and surely if a
wheol tot in motion by Congress can crush
and grind thoso rights out of existenco,
without regard to tho limitations of the
Constitution, some wcightcr reason should
be found for it than tho misnomer which
tho act so studiously applias to tho militia
some reason that deserves to stand in
stead of Magna Charta, our constitution
and nil rur traditional ficodom.
The ,ly one lhat I have over heard
suggc J, and which i3 applieablo against
all ib riows advanced in this opinion, is
called military necessity. Tho country is
invoh d in a great civil war which can bo
brought to an honorable oloso only by an
cnorg iio use of all our resources, and no
rcstta it should bo tolerated, in such oir
cuuut mces, savo only those which Christ
ian ei ilizatiou has imposed on all warfare.
Whatever is according to tho Constitution
tho argument claims, may bo done, of
course whatever is over and boyond the
Constitution is justified as military necess
ity, aud of that the President and Con.
gross aro exolusivo and final judgoi.
Tho amount of the argument is that the
exigencies of tho timo justify tho substitu
tion of martini lav? Blaokstono and Sir
Mathow Halo tell us "it is built upon no
settled prinoiplcs, but it is entirely nbitrary
in its decisious. is iu truth and reality no
law, but something indulged rather than
allowed as law." Tho unrestrained will
of ono or a number of men, then, ia tho
rule which tho argumont substitutes for tho
Constitution. It is of no conscqucnco that
tno win tuus set up tor supremo law is
that of men whom a majority of tho poo-1
pie havo chosen, because neeording to our
system tho majority cau only choose mon
to administer to the constitution as it is
written. Majorities, as a power recog
nized by law, havo no more right to estab
lish a despotism than a minority would
have. But may majorities or minorities
set aside tho Constitution under prcssuro
of rebellion and insurrection ?
As tho Constitutiou anticipates and pro
vides for such calamities, it is a reproach
to its wisdom, to sav that it is inadenuato
. i. . nr. t
to sueu emergencies. io man uas any
historical tight to cast thu reproach upon
.. . 1 . '
it. io current experience provot it. it
never can bo proved except by an unsuc
cessful use of tho legitimate powers of tho
Constitution against rebellion, and then
tho thing proved, will bo that tho instru
ment needs ameudment,which its machinery
is flexible enough to allow. Even such a
inciancuoly demonstration would do no
moro than point out necessary amendments
it would not surrender tho people to tho
arbitrary will of anybody. Presidents or
Congressmen aro only servants of tho peo
ple to do their will, not as that will, may
be expressed under passion or excitement,
but as it stands recorded in ihe Constitu
tiou. It is the Constitution indeed which
makes them President or Congressmen.
Thoy havo no power to set up their will
against the Constitution, than so many
private citizens would have. Outside of
that they aro only private citizens.
"I do not therefore, foci the force of tho
argument drawn from the distressing cir
cumstances of the time. Bad us they are
wc make them worse by substituting abi
tary power for constitutional rule, but if
wc made them better and not worse tho
judicial mind ought not to be expected to
approve tho substitution, for it can recog
nize no violation of the Constitutiou as a
legitimato vindication of the Constitution.
To place ourselves under despotic sway in
order to bring baok llebcls to the Constitu
tion wc havo given up is a procedure that
pcrploxes tho student of the political sci
ence, and will quite confound the historian
oi our times.
"There aro other features of tho Con
;ipt law that doservc criticism, but, not to
"xtond my opinion farther, I rest ray ob
jections to its constitutionality on these
1st. That the power of CoDgross to
raise and support armies, doos not include
the power to draft the militia of the State.
"i!d. That the power of Congress to call
forth tho militia cannot bo exercised ia tho
forms of tli i3 cuaotment.
"3d. That a citizen of Pennsylvania
cannot bo subjected to the rules and arti
cles of war until ho he is iu actual mili

tual service when his namo has been drawn
from a wheel and ten days' notice thereof
has bcon servod upon him.

The Kidnapping of White Men
How a Young Man Luckily
Escaped. It is a well-known fact that poor whito
men nro now kidnapped ovory day in Now
York, by a sot of lank-shark, who get
S10 per head for dragging them in tho
army, under tho plea of their being deser
ters. Tho following coso rests upon tho
uuiuuiity oi an Auoiiiiou paper, the Uom
vicrciul Advcrttscr, of that city. It says :
lt Last Monday morning a young man was
abducted from Yorkvillo, under tho fol
lowing circumstances : The Saturday
provioua two men entered station II., city
Pot Office, and made several inquiries of
Jlr. i'ease, tho Postmaster, respecting his
namo and former business, and then wont
away. On Monday , a man eame to tho
offico, and said that ho desired the person,
of ono Charles II. Pease, who was said to
bo a dcscrlor fiom tho 33d Now Jorsey
Hegiracnt. IIo did not state whether ho
was a dctcctivo or military officer, but
took tho boy down to tho barracks at tho
City Hall, whero soino private conversa
tion toon piaco uctwecn tno supposed of
licor and a person who did not wear tho
uniform of a military or polico officer,
After a few moments' conversation tho
supposed officer was told- to take tho boy
over to Jersey City. Hero ho was ar
raigned boforo Captain Mhlcr, who upon
being asked if this was tho young man
who had deserted said, "Well, 1 don't
kuow, I supposo ho is ; ho looks liko him ;
ho is young, pock marked, fcc-" Whero
upon tho boy was sent to Governor's Is
land, placed in confinement, and allowed
no opportunity of communicating with his
friends. The next day one of the govern
ment officers engaged in repairing the fort
on tho Island mado a requisition for somo
men to do some work, and among this de
tail was this C. II. Pease, who recognized
the government officer as ono with whom
he was acquainted and who resided in
Yorkvillo. Ho obtained au opportunity
to mako himself known, and desired tho
gentleman to toll his father whero ho was4
"His father immediately secured tho
services of an officer of tho Twenty-third
precinct, and thoy started for Governor's
Island and examined tho records, but as
.they did not find tho namo of C. II. Pcaso,
they wero compelled to go away. Tlio
next day tho search was resumed and tho'
boy was scon, when application was mado
to General Canby, for his release. Tho
General told tho boy's father that ht
would have to show that tho boy had been
so employed, that ho could not havo en
listed at tho time alleged, and ho would
then releaso him.
"Affidavits woro mado by several eitia
ons of Yorkvillo that tho boy had been
seen by them on tho day specified, and
could not have bcou in Jersey City, where
upon General Canby disoharged tho boy.-
"This is not tho only caso of this kind
which has occurred in this oity. $10 13
now paid for tho arrest of deserters, and
parties aro employed who do not caro who
thoy arrest srf long as they earn tho 810.
I If a man is once sent to Governor's Island
; ho cannot readily iret off. In this case, if
young Pease had not been recognized ho
would by this timo havo been sent off to
the army. As thirty dollars will soon
be paid for deserters, many innocent por
aons will doubtless bo pioked up."
Hero, by tho merest accident, (and no
doubt thero aro a hundred like cases), tho
boy recognized a:i old acquaintance whilo
detailed to work, and his father was 011
ablcd to rescue his son, and fo to savo
him. Under tho temptation of 510, other
eases liko this have occurred here, but
now 630 is tho temptation for thus abduct
ing and stealing men. N. Y. Bay Book.
Sun or (mo) Moon ? Two men, after
drinking and carousing all night at a sa
loon, started in the morning to go homo.
It was a beautiful, suuny morning, and
as thoy staggered along, tho following con
versation arose ;
Inebriato No. 1. "How bright (hie)
tho moon shines J"
Inebriata No. 2. "You don't call that
(bio) tho moon, ch ? That's (hie) sun."
No. 1." "Taiu't it' (hie) moon."
No. li. "I tell yo it's sun !"
No. 1. "Well less leave (hie) matters
to first man wo meet."
No. 2. ''Agreed "
Tho two tcddlcd along for a short dis
tance, wheu they uhaaced to meet a man
in oxactly tho sumo condition with them
selves. Tho individual was immediately
treated to tho following interrogation :
No. 1. "I say (hie) old follow!
We've got inter a sputo ; want ye to (hie)
'olp us out. My fren horo says that's tho
sun pointing upward to Old Sol who was
blaziug fiorcoly down upon them and I
say it's moon. Now wo'rc goin' to leavo
tho mattor with you. What is it suu or
(hie) moon ?"
1 he person addressed braced himself,
after considerable difficulty, against a
lamp post, aud then commenced to scrut
inize, as well as hu could tho burning orb
overhoad rcpeatiug in a meditativo tono
of voieo : Sun moon sun (hie) moon.'
After a short 'observation,' ho exclaimed :
'Fact is gent'lem, I'm a strancror in this
part (bio) of tho country, and I can't tell
whether its sun or (hto) moon.'
