THE BRIDGE OF BLANKS.
Spanning tbs streamlet’s grassy banks,
Above the shallow brook.
Stands the old-fashioned bridge of planks,
In a cold, shady nook.
An alder and an aged thorn
Over the waters meet,
And the wooden path is thin and worn
With the tread of many feet.
For from the hamlet on the hill
That ancient footway leads.
Over the narrow brawling rill;
Into the woods end stead.;
THf sturdy laborer, bale and strop",
Crosse* wi h heavy tread,
While the lark trills out its morning to ng
High o’tr his dewy bed.
The run-hurned children, girl* and bov*,
“In wild and merry rout,
Tu the full prime of childhood's joys,
Pass over with a sllotft.
The gray-haired patriarch lores the place;
He sees it from bis cot,
And totters down, with feeble pace,
Tu linger near the spot.
And there, on summer even, I ween,
True lovers breathe their tows, te
What time the pale moon’s trembling sheen
Fails on the hawthorn boughs.
Thro’ Summer’s heat and Winter’s co’d,
Spanning the grassy banks,
It stands, the friend of young and old.
The tfUsty bridge of planks.
A HEROIC GIRL.
EXPERIENCE Os A DETECTIVE.
In 1848; a circumstance occured in
the city, said Mr. F., which at the time
created an excitement which affected
the entire population. An old roer.
chant, highly connect'd, wealthy and
of distinguished social position, one
night mysterously disappeared. His
family were in inSuite distress, and his
business in consequent disorder. lie
left his store at a lute hour, ostensibly
to go home ; but before going, contrsry
to the usual practice, he put in his
pocket a large sum of money. His
way led along Peters street, on the
bank ol the river, far down in the
Third district of tire city. His life
uia’y have been sa'ritleed ami his body
thro*n into the flood that roiled at his
tcct. Police regulations, at this time*
w re ha 1, and crimes of this deerip*
tion were uot unfii que itly perpetrated,
A little way back from the street was a
ruinous building, half tumbling to de.
c.iy, and inhabited by a number of
people,moo and women, inn ured to vice,
and living bv robbery.
Among the notes Mr. Goulaj was
known to po‘6e. ; s was one for 8500,
with the word “Cana!” written on the
buck. The rest wore of various de
nominations and without peculiar
Mr, I and myself visited the re
sidence ot the missing man, at the re
quest of h is’g wife,- aud by her Were
charged with the duty of tracing out
and bringing tc justice bis supposed
murderers She was a tall, elegant
looking lady, of commanding presence
and great culture. The wealth of her
rieh beauty and fine mind were inherit
ted by her daughter, a young gitl,
scarcely twenty. The terrible, bete&re
tuent had paralyzed the sense es the
mother, but bad aroused energy
and fire of the young giri’s nature. —
More like a beautiful Nemesis that an
ordinary woman she appeared to us.—i-
As we entered the room, aha was iu
the act of consoling her mother. The
long black hair had e caped from its
confinement, and almost envo'eped her
person iu ebon tresses. Tho great,
l.imiuous eyes were tearful; but £sil«
ing and full of fire. The face was
dark with the Hood of her Spanish
race, but the figure was queenly, slen
der aud faultless as a model. The
glorious beauty of this young girl feci
natrd while it bewildered you. Rare
in its exquisite loveliness, the eye de
lighted to rest on the willowy outline
and graceful symmetry. Starting up
as we entered the room, she iuquired
has*ily and almo. t fiorcely, l though::
‘Are you the detectives?”
“\Ye are,” and we mentioned our
“I must speak to you in private,’*
ale said, axd led the way to on adjoin
‘‘What Jo you think of the waiter?”
«he asked when out of hearing of her
“As yet an opinion would bo mere
guess work,” l replied.
“Nevertheless I have oomc to one.
I have no doubt he has been murdered,
and that the deed was committed
somewhere near the old ruinous build*
ing near the river.
“Some such idea has arose oil in;
mind, but there is no trace ai fSt
ffhich can lead to proof of it.”
“We will find it, rest assured,” she
said, “and to this end yon mnit oo*op
erate with me; and now listen to what
I have to say: To-night, at 12 o’clock
precisely, do you two visit the old
building. I will be thore. Ask for
the yonng woman who applied at night*
fall to them for shelter. Let your ob
ject be, appeareutlj, to arrest her.
“Bat I do not understand.”
“But yon will. lam going there at
dusk, disguised as a begger girl. By
| the time y«u came my information wilt
have been collected.” She rose to her
ieaf as be spoke, and now indeed she
wore the appearance of the Nemesis t
bad likened here to at first. Beantifttly
bat rigid as fate, looked now that set,
determined face. The beautiful
had lost their softened latter, and
shone now with a passionate light ai*
most crnel. The lips were pale, bat
rigid as iron, and the beantifu! aostiilt
dilated with an eipression of heart con
suming vengeance. “I will read tbe
guilty secret,” she said, “if the crimi
nal is there : however deep in his heart
ht may bury it.”
Strange as it may appear, I made no
| attempt to dissuade her from her pur
j pose. I could not. I felt as if the
1 beautiful creature exercised over tne S
1 magnetic control. And with this un<
derstanding we took oar leave, to pre*‘
pare for the night visit to the old Lease
. and its dangerous inhabitants.
Those acquainted with tbs City at
that period can from some idea of the
danger of the plot we have formed. To
i us it was a matter of daily occurrence.
; But for a yonng girl, inexperienced
end tenderly nurtured, to thrust herself
into the very hoHse of the unscrupu
lous and desperate wretches who were
suspected of thi* crime was simply
appalling. It would not do,however,
to go to the place before the hoar ap
: pointed for car coming, Rr that wonld
j defeat the object in view. It was*
j therefore, with many a misgiving, and
l*n uneasiness but poorly concealed, we
bided onr time. Bat we determined
to be there at the very moment, and
the clock was on the stroke of aid*
night when we knocked at the door.—
The outside of the house gave no signs
of life within. The shutters were se*
oureiy fastened, and no ray of light
penetrated the darkness ; bat the muf
fled touud of voiees reached our ears,
until our knock hashed them to a whis
per. There was a momentary hesita
tion, as if of counseling together, and
the door was opened wide.
It was a long, low room,- dusty and
brown frem age. About a down per
sons were seated around ; but every
eye was turned to the door. Two men
had risen to their feet, and stood in an
attitude which might mean defense,
before the fireplace; but the object
that attracted onr attention most was a
yonng girt sitting is tbe center of the
apartment. Her face was dark as a
gip«j’s and the long kair hong loose on
her shoulders—her dress was of poof
material, ragged and unclean. Patches
and rents hud almost changed its hue
and disguised its texturo. She seem
ed too thinly clad for that cold night,
and her slender frame shivered, as if
from cold, 33 the chill air from the
open door swept in.
“What do you want?” was the stern
question addressed to us by one of the
men at the fire.
Before I had time to reply tbe git!
sprung to her feet and spoke instead :
“Arrest these men !” Her voice was
low, but the faec, flashing in the light
ot the Gre, was that of the Nemesis I
had seen that day.
There was a short, fierce struggle,
and the men were in onr power. The
girl then walked to a place in the floor*
and, touching a concealed spring, lifted
a trap-door. She bid Mr. I. left the
box that lay iu the hiding place. The
lid was renched off, and in it were tbe
old merchant’s money, paper and pock
et book. With tbe »ioney was found
the bill, and the world “Canal - ’writ-
ten across it.
It was Dot long before the men con
fessed their ©rime. The (Id man had
been murdered and his body thrown in
The daughter accomplish her mis
sion. She had oarried our ber dssign
and traced to their hiding-place tbe
proofs of the murderers' crime. It is
useless to relate what followed. Long
years have fled since then, and the
young Nemesis ia jet among the living.
Beautiful still, there are many hearts
to grow glad at her smila and share
with her tbe joye of thu borne aba
charms. But thia strange incident in
her life will never be effaced from her
mind, or fado from tbe memory of
. hose who taw ber then,
