BY 11. it. ADDISON
I NEVER recollect a warmer enthusi
ast than Professor Leyden. tx hen ho
spoke, he seemed to forget all other
worldly circumstances, all other sub
jects, save the one engrossing topic on
which he was engaged. His eye, wide
ly dilated, saw no object save the bright
imagery created by his fertile brain.—
His voice was impassioned. His every
pulse beat high. The professor, at the
time 1 speak of, was just two and thirty,
and ranked himself as the very leader
of Grill and Spurzheim's energetic dis
ciples. On the subject of phrenology
he was discoursing when I entered the
dining room of the [Won Hartmann.
It was a fine summer evening. Straw
berries and other fruits decorated the
board. The well-iced Johannisberg and
the cellar-cooled Lafitte stood tempting
ly on a table, around which about a do
zen young men, with the worthy baron
and the professor, sat.
It appeared that, in the height of his
enthusiasm, Leyden had, to please the
company, examined their heads, and
with many wise looks pressed the bumps
which he declared to be the unerring in
dications of the human character and
passions. Some unfortunate wight in
company, however, had evidently shock
ed the examiner by a demonstration of
wicked propensities, for he strenuously
refused, on this occasion, to pronounce
upon the several organs, declaring he
"might give offence," he "might be
wrong," " indeed it might appear invid
ious ; in short, after making several
similar excuses, the professor sat down
in meditative silence; nor could he
again be brought to speak, save and ex
cept upon the general merits of the sys
tem, a subject on which he never failed
I to enlarge.
It is a curious fact, that I never in my
life heard the subject of phrenology
broached without a laugh being raised
at its expense, which very naturally an
noys the supporters of this theory and
brings on the warmest argument. It was
a *scussion of this kind that probably
had raised the fire which flushed the
cheek of Leyden on the evening of which
The conversation had now taken a
new channel. A dreadful murder had
been committed in the neighborhood of
the black Forest. A young girl had
eloped from her parents some weeks
before. The companion of her flight
was supposed to be a young tnan who
had been staying in the neighborhood;
he had disappeared about the same time.
She had just been found savagely tour
&red, while the supposed partner of
her guilt had reappeared, and declared
that he had with difficulty escaped from
the hands of banditti, who had, without
any apparent motive, seized and im
prisoned him. To prove this, he show
ed several severe wounds which he had
received in the successful struggle he
had had with two of the gang in his en
deavor to liberate himself. This stbry,
however, appeared so improbable, that
no belief was attached to it, and the
young man was hurried to prison, there
to abide hts trial.
This sad story had been repeated
with painful minuteress by Carl Haiti..
non, a handsome young man, who had
lately arrived at Backe, and whose mild
and gentlt manly manners had already
won for him the golden opinions of till
the society assembled there. 'No one
was more pleased with him than the
old baron. It was even believed that he
ranked so high in the good old man's
opinion, that it was rumored he had
proposed and was actually accepted by
Clara Hartmann, with the full sanction
of her father.
As a nnrrator, few could excel him.—
His vivid description lent life to his sto
ries ; and when he chow, (as on the
present occasion) he could harrow up
the nerves of even the most apathetic,
by depicting horrors in their most gla
ring, most appalling colors.
One burst of indignation, as ho con
eluded, bespoke how truly he had inter
ested his auditory• A thousand execra
tions were heaped upon the head of the
unhappy youth, who seemed plainly, in
controvertibly, from the details given
by Curl, to be the perpetrator of the

Prince of Olsebuch, a young Russian,
as he took a pinch of snuff, and handed
to his next neighbor his splendid box,
which dazzled the eye by the richness
of the diamonds encircling it, "If such
a wretch existed on my estates, I'd have

"Nay, nay, silid'the old baron, "that
is saying too much. It is true m man
deserves an earthly punishment; but
you aro allowing your anger against a
vice, my dear boy, to carry you too
far." And the old noble good-naturedly
patted Carl on the arm.
Thus various subjects were discussed
and argued ; but during the whole even
ing Leyden spoke not a word. At last
the hour for breaking up arrived ; and
according to etiquette the prince moved
first. Ere he did so, he requested the
return of his snuff-box. The person
to whom he had handed it declared that
he had passed it to the next, who in his
turn denied all knowledge of it, as did
the rest of the company.
Every one had seen it, every one had
handled it, but none could now produce
it. The room was searched, the ser
vants had not even entered the apart
ment, the door had never been unclosed,
none had stirred from the table. The
affair began to wear a serious aspect.—
The old baron felt his honor wounded,
but still hoped it might prove to be an
ill-timed pleasantry. Under this im
pression he rose.
"Gentleman some person amongst you

a fright, and, in good faith, he deserves
it for thus carelessly forgetting to look
after a trinket said to be worth fifty
thousand florins; but, us he seems real
ly uneasy about it, I must beg the per
son who has taken it instantly to return
it, and confess the joke."
And the noble affected to laugh. None
however responded, and Hartman saw,
with increasd uneasiness, that he must
now take up the matter more seriously.
"My friends, you cannot feel offend

to undergo the ordeal—an ordeal, I al

Old Hartman was about to speak in
no gentle terms to the man who thus
had insulted his future son-in-law, when
waving his hand, Leyden quietly added
" Search him."
The baron, in his engerneas to defend
his protege, at once flew to do so. Im
mediately the snufl•box fell on the table.
The worthy old man sank, overcome in
a chair. In the breast pocket of Carl's

Bullying a Witness.
There is an attorney practising in our
conrts who had attained a great notori
ety for bullying witnesses on the oppo
site side of cases when he ls concerned.
As it would not be polite to give his full
name right out of the crowd, we will
merely call him " Wyke," for short.
There was a horse case, a very com
mon case, upon our magistrates' dock
ets, trying before the Squire Shelbaker
one day in which Wyke happened to be

was cut short in the following manner :

barbarian, in his peculiar contemptuous
and overbearing manner.
" No, I don't pretend to be a horse
doctor, but I know a good deal about
the nater of the beast."
" That means to say that you know a
horse from a jackass when you see
them," said %,‘ yke, in the same style,
looking knowingly at the court, and
glancing triumphantly around the crowd
of spectators with a telearaphic expres

A Joke not all a Joke.
The editor of the City Item tells the
following story. It is so good that we
hope it is not a story in two senses.—
Certainly it is good enough to be true:

and business-like manner.
