It ma taken in almost the rery words ef tke murderer, though not committed to wri ting until the next day, for the narrative made a very powerful impression on my mind. The disappearance of the mur dered man had excited much conjecture as to his fate ; but the general impres sion was that he had absconded to avoid his creditors, and his friends often won dered whether he would ever return : ma mubdebkk's stout. There were five of ?i*together??con stant companions women, wine laud the die in com pany, got drniflrftiiJWKr;^,^ Irom the same pur-?e. A very slender purse it was, too -but that's not to the point. There was Harry Picrceand hisbrother Fred, little Tom Nccdham, J tck Fry and myself. Harry was impetuous, hasty, u, but in the main good hear led ; his brother was cooler, more calculating! and, if anything, a little avaricious. I'om was a true ioper, who enjoyed hi> ijlass to the extreme, and was never hap py except when half drunk; an 1 Jack was a kind of hanger-on and toady o tha whole of us. For myself,there were ?nly two peculiarities worth mentioning, fiom their apparent inconsistency. A> (juick as a the lea^t angry word would arouse me to a tempest of ungov ernahle passion, which, when sub-id-d. wsuld h ave me as cold as ice, and with a mind freo to plot and contrive any thing. On one evening we had lost a good deal of money, iroro than we could wel 'ilford, at poktr, and had left the gaming room in no very good spirits. Fret. Fierce had uot been with us, or, pe baps, we should not have played ^so long, foi i* red, unlike the majority of gamblers who play most desperately when fortune is most unkind, :nvanably?t< pped when# certain maximum of loss was arrive 1 at In the morning Fied called to see me ha\in* heard sojneth ng about tho loss aud was astomslud and angry when h? lea ned the aaiouut. lie remonstratec with me, and when I lausbvd at his words, grew irritated. One word, as th? saving goes, brought on another; we became angry ; and at length he told me thai he thought it unjustifiable or our parts to his share of the mone\ during his absence. I called him a loo! and he etor.ed that I was a scoundrel, lu a towering rage, I prized the terns which stood ori thv side of the heauh. aud, before I gn'e :i thought to tl~ ccn >equenc*, struck him ou the ht-a^ w i:, all t^e sit!er:-?h of which 1 was master lift feli ir:s?autiy. J ha next moment re s.ored mc to consciousness, and I raised him up. lht blew had lra? -ured his skull, although no blood hud tLwu?h?* tnicK cap, which h** hpd not remove. duung 'heconversation iseadening some what the blow ; he evidently dead. A moment's reflection convinced me that one or two things must be done? either to conceal the body or to discover the fact and \ rociaim that I had done the deed in belf-def, nee. The fear :hat I could not well make it appear so to the public, deterred me from tho latter course. I had stated the day before to my landlady that I intended to tend a box full of books aud papers to my mother s residence in the country; and the large packing-box procured for the purpose then stood in my room. I de termined to put the body in this, but 1 heard a ringing at tho door bell. Thrust ing asioe tne window-curtain, I put my head thiongh the windi w, whieb was, iuckily, ha'f hoisted, and saw that mv companion* of the night before had come to pay mc a visit. I knew that they would at once come to my room, and tfke no denial for entrance. In an in stant my course was determined on. I hastily dragged the body to the closet, placed it upright, and lakiDg my duel ling case from the place of its usual be itowment, closed the closet door. I then threw on my great coat, put on my hat, and tossed the chairs in confusion round my room. I had scarcely doue this when 1 heard the steps of the party on the stairs, and as they enteied the*room, I gave a tremendous cath, with every oth er evidence of counterfeited passion. "iiallo!" exclaimed Harry Pierce, "what is the matter with you ? Goin?r out ?" "I have this moment come in," said I, ??to get my pistols. I thought I'd prac tice this morning?and some vagabond has been in my room and turned every thing upside down. It's too bad. by Jove; there s a whole pile of shirts, just from the wash, tossed on the floor." My friends bur t into a laugh and Tom Nteuham exclaimed: ' Served you right. What business have you to own so many shirts.1 1 have only one. In fact that was what kept me from you yesteiday so long. 1 had to lie in bed while it was being washed and ironed?aud the woman kept it two hours beyond time, because I owed her a little kill." "Well," 6aid I, "I wish you'd stop your nonsense and fix up matters; and we'll go out and take a crack or two this morning " ?'Not with me," answered Tom. "It's too cold for the fingers. I ll teli you what we'll do. We'll have a game of whist. There's just a snug purty. I wonder where Fred is ?" "I don't know," said I, "he promised yesterday to come and see me.'' "I'll beta sous," cried Jack Fry, "thai h? was the Robin Goodfellow wno up^s your wardrobe." "Just like him," I replied, "but atver theless, 1 am bant on shooting thii morning." "So you shall shoot, old fellow," criec Tom Ne*dham, "so fou shall: and yot r-7 ~ rrted'nt oool your fingers either. Yo? lew# this old rat-trap to-morrow, don't wr Wl _ I 44 Very good. Then well giv* your | landlady s proof of solid regard. Here 1 and he took a piece of coal from the hearth fts he spoke?41 I'll chalk out the I old'lady on the closet door. Loftd your pistols?its about twelve paces from the 1 other Fide of the room ?and we'll put I more balls into the old feminine than I she puis pepper corns into her mock I turtle soup." A general yell of approval greeted hifl I novel proposition, amid which Tom I gravely pro<~eeded to sketch what he Joalled a rematkably correct portrait of 1 the mistress of the house; and Harry I Picrce set to work to load the pistols. 1 V** hen Harry had finished, be claimed 1 the first shot for his pains, which Tom I eHlmed fer the ?me reason intuting I that he had set up the wind mitt ho I ought to tilt at it. A mock altercation I followed, which was finally settled by a toes up. which Iisrry won He grasped I the pistol accordingly, and fl:ed. A noiRe of something followed. The I concussion had disturbed the body, which I in failing had struck a side shelf, ard I ?verturned some books We all started. I Ncidham, however, did not notice it, I and presented his pistol, fired agair, bul I entire y too low, exclaiming when he I saw the result?44 There's a ball in her I ladv^hips calf, by Jupi?er." I Harry turn d to me as white as a^hes, I and 44I'id you hear anything ?" I 441 did," I replied, 44 the ball from I your pistol, and be hanged to y< u, I has upset some of my books, I suppose." 44 Un, my tJ?>d !" exclaimed liarry, *'I I have a terrible presentment. Suj j*>se I niv brother hhould have hid himself in I the closet. And he sank down on the I rhair as ha sp >ke. We gathered round 1 h m ; and Tom Necdham burst into a I fit of laughter. ! 44 Upon my soul." said he. 44 you are I w^rse than the baker's daughter, ' Here J .e cried in a squeaking tone. 4 If I were I o by marrud. and weie to have a little I Oitby, and it were to come here and get I mto the oven and then be burned to I loath?boo?boo!

' and then sank I into the arm* of Tom Needham My companions examined the body. I The ball of Harry had evidently gone I through his heart. The absence of I blood was at once accounted for by the I inward bleeding : and as we were ex?m I ining the body, we heard the shrill vooe I cf our hostess lady outside scolding be I couse we were firing pistols and sh'iek* I mg in our room. A debate now ensued in regard to the I disposal of the dead body. 1 knew that I the blow on the head would be discov I ercd, it the thing vras suggested that we J bad better bury the body tecretly. I I told them that it could be packed in the I long box which lay there; and that one I of us could meet the conveyance out of Jtown, uko it to some oui-of the way I spot, wheirt I could assist to bury the I body. In the meanwhile, Needham I could purchase a coffin, and other neces I sarv materials as though to send~it off I to the country, and at night we could I bury it. Harry Pierce made no opposition, be was incapable of anything, the plan was carried out, a^ I suggested, and each parted. 1 he rest was convinced and are s>tili, that a brother hau been the unwil licg murderer of a brother. Harry Pierce died last year in a mad-house, aud I am bore, twenty years after, with grey hairs on my head, and an unclouded reputs I tion, to tell the tale. Pill Takers.?There are people in the world who physio themsi Ives to death. We have known men to flee to pills for relief for every kind of ill. They had what may bo called a pill mania. Some of these pill devourere would present* startling sum total, could they give in lound numbers the am >un. taken during % life-time. We recollect hearing of one man, in the western part of New York State, the total of whose pill-taking was recorded as follows: In twentv-one ycais he took 226,934. which is at the rate of 10,806 p ryear, or 29 per day. He be* gan, would seem, with a mod el ate appetite, which increased as he grew older; for during the eight years preceding his death?of course he died? i he swallowed pills at the rate of seventy i eight per day! In one year, just before ho shtfUrd off his pill coil, he took not less than 51,000! The most surprising part of the story is yet to be told: in ad dition to all the pills above recorded, this victim swallowed, at various t;mes, some 50,000 bottles of mixtures. These facts L were obtained, we would aid, from a respectable apothecary, near where our ? medicine-maniac lived from boyhood to - death; and who Jurnished him with all he wanted in his line. There is a quts - tion in our mind, whether the respsctsbls I apothecary, as aforesaid, was not an se ' cessory to the murder of his profitable 1 customer; for, that he was murdered, i1 would wo lo be ? fixed fact.
