She was nett day installed in Mr. Fordyne's own
house, to whom, in return, she committed a sum
rather above four hundred pounds; for to that

of her late employment
For some time matters proceeded very well.—
Her husband professed to lay out her money up
on those goods which he had formerly represent

factored, in order to purchase it at the greatest
advantage His wife in a little while became

time, and having every reason to believe that his
affairs were in a very prosperous state, began to
forget all her former misgivings
Our occasion he left her on what be described
as the Highland distillery visit, intending, be
said, io be absent for at least a week, and carry
tog with him money to the amount of nearly a
thousand pounds, which he said he would proba

Nothing that could awaken the least suspiiion
occurred at their' parting; but next day while his
wife superintended matters in the shop, site was
surprised when a large bill was presented, for
which he had wale nu provision On inspecting
i it she was Still eurther surprised to find that it
referred to a transaction which she undirstood
a t the time to be a ready money one Raving
dismissed the presenter of the bill, she lost no
time in repairing to the counting-house of a large
commission house in Leith, with which she knew
her husband to have had large transactions
There, on making some indirect inquiries, she
found that his purchases, instead of being entire
ly fur reedy money, as he•had represented to ber,
were mostly paid by bills, some of which were on
the point of becoming due It was now but too

On lauding in proper time at Douglas, in Man,
she found her purse almost empty, but bee des•
perate etreumatauees made her resolve to prose'
cute the search, though she should have to beg
her way hack
It was tuorolog when Au landed at Douglas
The whole forenoon E. hi, spent in wandering
about the strteis, to the hope of eneountering her
faitLiees husbsod, and inquiring after him at the
inns At length she sattsfied herself that Le
musiiiave left the town that vary day for a re.
mote part of the island, and on foot. She imme
diately set out upon the same road, and with the
same means of conveyance, determined to sink
with fatigue, or subject herself to any kind of
danger, rather than return without her object.
At first the - road passed over a moorish part of
the country; but after proceeding several miles,
it began to border on the sea, in some places
edging on the precipices which overhung the
shore, and at others winding into deep recesses
of the country. At length, on coming to the
opening of a long reach of the road, she saw a
her has which she took for that of her has cl,
just disappearing at the opposite eztre y.—
immediately gathering fresh strength, a push
ed briskly on, and after an hour's tot e march
bad the satisfaction, on turning a proj tion, to
find her husband sitting right betties her on a
ordyne was very mach surprised at her ap.
pearauce, which was totally unexpftted; bin be
soon recovered his oompoeste. Ha met her with
mare than even usual kindness, as if concerned
at ber having thought proper to perfam so toil
some a journey. He hastened to explain that
some information he bad received atialsegow re
specting the dangerous state of his mother, bad
induced him to make a start out of his way to
see ber, after which he 'would immediately re•
turn It was then his turn to ask explanation
from her; but this subject he premed very tight.
lyi and for ber part, she hardly dared, in this
lonely place, to avow the suspicions stylish had
induced her to undertake the journey.
"It is all very well," . sald Fordyne,with sleeted
eomplairanee; "you'll just go forward with me to
my mother's house, and she-will be pleased to
see me since I bring you with me." label, smo
thering her real feelings, agreed to do this, the'
it may well be supposed that, after what be had
already done, sod considering the wild place - is
which she was, she most hare entertained no
comfortable prospects of her night'. adventures.
On then, they walked, in the dusk of fast ap•
proaching night, tbrough a country whisk seem
ed to be destitute slate of houses andiahabltests,
sod where thelnuiversal stillness was baldly ever
broken by the sound of any saikaal, land et
tame.' The road as formerly, was partly en tbe
edge of a sea worn preeipieee, over which a vie.
tim might be dashed in a minment, with hardly
the hpist chance of ever being more sees or heard
of, alid partly in the recesses of a nagged who
try, i whose pathless wilderness the woe lt of
wafter might be almost es assurely siseted.—

of civil conversation, with the watchful eye of
one w h o d rea d s th e s pring of the tiger from
every break. She contrived to keep upon the
aide of the toad most remote from the precipices,
and carrying in her pocket an unclasped pen
knife, though almost hopeless that her womanly
nerves would support her in any effort to use it
Thar did they walk oe_for several miles, till at
length, all of a sudden; Fordyne started off the
road, and was instantly lost in a wild, tortuous
ravens. This steal was so different from any
ether which she kind feared, that for a moment
she stood motimasee with surprist. Another
moment, however, lutheed to make up her mind
as to her future course, and she immediately I
plunged into the defile, following as nearly as
possible in the direction whieh the fugitive rep.
peered to have taken. On, on she totted , through
thick entangling bushes, and over much soft and
mossy ground, her limbs every moment threat
to sink beneath her with fatigue, which

Mr. C. then called up and examined shout

This was clinching testimony, Mr C was calling
another wttness yet, when the Judge esid•
"Mr. C., there is no use in calling any more
witnesses on that point It is now abundantly
Mr. C. replied—"lf your honor is satisfied, I
aio; I only wish to show that the witness is a
liar and not to be believed;" and he tilted him
self back in his chair, ran his fingers through his
hair, and looked arouud upon the crowd, while a
triumphant grin covered his face
The Cuy Attorney then recalled Wm Davis
Attorney.— A down witnesses swear that you

These letters are all dated at "the tower of
