In 1840, the principal 44 banking insti tutions of the chance kind" in vS?n Fran c'8(o were the Bell* Union, Verandah, Mine de Oro i,l Dorado, and Parker House, all situated about the Plaza, and e*ch employed a band of music lo lessen the tedious hours of that rainy winter, ^rd to drown tho noise of jinkling gold and silver, and the cursing ejaculations of the gamesters. Many a sad scene has taken place within* those saloons tnat chilled the blood of tho beholder, and is remembered with horror. I was once carelessly sauntering through one of these. My attention was attracted towards a person who had large piles of gold before him ; the aUrting evebalis, the swollen v: ins upon bib forehead, the cold sweat 011 his face and clenched hands, told of heavy losses; mingled ex clamations of horror and contempt would escape him, and he seemed unconscious of all else going on around him; his gi&-> bent upon the cards as if his life's blood was the stake of 'he issue; and in this chip his last dollar was put within the dealer's bank when, with the frenzy of a maniac, he drew a long d rk kmfe and plunged it up to the hilt m his own body, and sank a corpse upon the table. A few rude jeers followed the act; th3 body was removed, and the game went on as though no;Li;ig had happ ened -as though another victim had not been added to the page of the gambler s dauiniug rc ;rd. or another soul had not goae to its final account! I learned this much of hi-? history : he started with a large s'ock of goods, gnei him by his father to sell on commission, and the father's fortune depended upor> a pure icturn of the money invested; but, as usual with voung men, he in th? full liberty of unbridled license, and while the ship stopped atone of the South American ports, he engendered the first seeds of 44 play but lor a while after his arrival the excitement of trade and the energy necessary to accomplish a suces-ful issue kept his mind busy. One da}, by appointment, lie was to meet a mercantile friend at this house, and while waiting for his friend, he staked a few dollars upon the turning cu ds, when the latent disease sp;unginto life, and it car ried him headlong over tho precipice, and ended in the tragic manner related. The Mine de Oro was a gambling sa loon, situated on Yrashington street, op posite the El Dorado, and in li>49 it wa the principal resort of disbanded soldiers of the California regiments, and also of the soldiers who had been engaged in the war with Mexico. Behind one oi the largest raontc banks in the room sat a man who had won for himself honora ble mention, and an officer's commis sion was gtven him for h:s bravery at the storming of Monterey ; but, prt fer rir.g the climate of California and its gclden prospects to a more northern home, ha embarked for that country at the closet ol the war with Mexico, and upon his arrival he openid a bank for gambling. The emigrants cane iu by thousands, and a few nights after his arrival a young man entered this Kaloon, seated In in self at the bank, and staked various'sums upou the cards, until he had nearly lost all tho money he pos messed, 1 xciled with the play, and muudencd by his losses, he accused the dealer of cheating; the dealer replied sharply to the accusation ; the lie passed, when the young man struck the dealer a ;evere blow upon his face; as quick as thought the sharp report of a pistol fol lowed, and the gambler's clotuing was covered with tha young mau's blood he had shot him thiough the right breast. The room was soon cleared of the spec tators present, the doers closed, and medical attendance called in aid of the wounded man. The gawbUr sat moodily over his bank, passing the small monte cards through his lingers, and perhaps th nking of the deed just perpetrated, when the wounded man gavd a moan of agony, as the doctor's probe reached the bottom of his wound. The djctor in quired what State he was from, and the wounded man teplied: " Vermont.'' The gambler raised his head, for it had been a long time since he had seen a per son from the home of his childhood, and Vermont btn.g his native State, the mere mention of his name interested him. The doctor next inquired the name of the place where his parents resided, if he had any. The wounded man replied? 4* Montpelier." The gambler sprang to his feet, his limbs trembled and his iace was as pale as death, for Montpelier was the home of uis youth, and uarhaps the wounded man might have been his playmate in child hood?perhaps a schoolmate?knew his parents, his brothers and sister. He dung convulsively to the table, with the THE WEEKLY 8TAR Ptmitmu who an m i|bi t cotunuMioB of twenty per ctu contrading einotioM of r*pid thoofht, and the weight of the injury he had in flicted, he could scarcely keep on his feet. A stimulant ru given to the wounded man, and was momentarily re lieved from that weakness the bodv is subject to after a severe wound?when the doctor inquired if there was any friend in the city he wished 6ent for. 44 Yes," he replied, 44 My wife?she is at the City Hotel, corner of Clay and Kearney streets. Tell her to hasten, for I am badly hurt." A man was sent to bring his wife. "Doctor," said the gambler, "says that man's life, and there is my bank* and $10,000 in Burgoynes?yon shall have it all " The doctor felt the pulse of the man and probed the wound anew. The gam bier watched him with the greatest anx iety until his inspection was finished, when the doctor shook his head in token of impossibility. The gambler aat down by the side of the wounded man and bathed his head with water, and stopped the flow of the blood from the wound until the arrival of his wife; she came, accompanied by a few friends, and as heroic women bear their misfortunes, ?he bore hers. Not a word of n proaclk escaped her?words of cheerfulness only came from her lips as the tears coursed down her checks. To her inquiry as to the chances cf hr?r husband's recovery, the uftctor assured her that there was no hops; that the wound was mortal, and that in a few hours he would die. She sank down upon her knees and invoked the ineicy of a forgiving God for her dy ing husband and his murderer. The gambler asked the forgiveness ef the wounded man for the wrong he had com mitted, and also that of the wife, which was readily granted. "This," said he. "is for not obeying the sacred irjunction of my aged father and iso&cr tot to gamble. I have faced icath a thousand times, and still I have escaped: the balls of an enemy have T hiatled past my ear* as thick as tail stones and the bursting bomb have ex Dlodcd at my feet; still I have lived?O <od ! a d for this ! High above the red tide of the battle I have earned my coun try's ensign?and that won for me a name among men?when not oae com rade was left to tell o: the deeds in the battle, I escaj>ed unscathed. Why was 1 not killed like the rest. All that was ;>roud and pleasing to men I have had; and if I could recall this last act by liv ing upon carrion, sleeping in a pauper's ^rave, and renouncing every proud act of my life, 1 would do it. ( was born in the same village with that man; we have been classmates together at the same school; received instructions of the same aged man: we were beneath the sama roof, and O God ! lie must not die?he is my bro;i:er!" And the gambler sank down in a sweon upon the floor. The wcunded man raised hims-If upon his elbow; his glassy eyes wandered about the room as if in search of some very particular person. "Mary," said he, "is brother William here ? I?" and the word choaked in his throat, the gurgling blood stopped his utterance, and he sank back a corpse on his pillow. The wife knelt again, but it was beside a dead body, and in voked the mercy oi God upon his soul, and forgiveness for the munierer. The gambler awoke from his swoon, and staggered up Com the wife and said? "Mary, would it were otherwise, for I have nothing to live for now; the dead and dying do not want anything in this world, take ibis certificate of deposit to our aged father, and tell our parents we are b >th dead?but 0 ! do not tell how we died !" Before the woman cou'd reply or any oae interfere, the report of that pistol mounded again, and the frstracide had ceased to live. Ou the hill near R ncom Point were two graves, a few years ago, enelostd with a white fence, and one tombstoue ! stood at their head with the simple in i>cription?"Brothers."?Uoldtn Era, Ur When Dr. Rush was a young man, he was invited to dir.e in company with Robert Morris, a man celebrated for the part be took in the American Revolution. It so happened that the company had waited some time for Mr. Morris, who, on his appearance, apologised for detain ing them, by saying he had been engaged in reading a seimon of a clergyman who had just gone to England to receive orders. "Well, Mr. Morris," said the Doctor, 'how did you like the sermon ? I have heard it h.ghly extolled." 44Why, L'octor," said he, "I did not like it at all. It's too smooth and tame for me." "Mr. Morris," replied the Doctor, "what sort of a sermon do you like ?" "I like, sir," replied Mr. Morris, "that kind of preaching which drives a man into the corner of his pew, and makes him think the devil's after him.''
