'_Tho young earl liad bf3cn lying 1 on Ala couch something over a fortnight when tho cottage next to the Nest received two visitors. One of them ^as the landlord of the "Greyhound" •Inn, who held the key of the places <?.nd was changed with its letting: the second wag u middle-aged man, Pressed iu unassuming gentlemanly irray: tweeds, and having tho appear- •unce of a person well-to-do in a mid"die walk of life, of a servant whom .fortune had favored, of of a tradesman early retired from business. He was of medium height, and stoutly omit; a bull-nock, gave him a look •of forbidding strength, and his hands, red and blotchy, wore evidence* of -the fact that ho had not passed his .youth in more idleness. There was -a peculiar cunning about an otherwise insignificant face—the kind of stealth and slyness that would not, be deferred from stooping to the mean: a I ace that would not, by its first sight, secure for its owner a position of ii-ust in a bank. Yet, it was not an unpleasant face, and it grinned with a mixture of cockney and outlandish humor. The small sandy jnio.nstacho.drpopod,afj,er the fashion, at a later period, burlesqued-by- Mr. Stfthorn. as-Brother Sain, and'gave a peculiar ; admixtiire of simplicity to the otherwise not over prcpo.-isc.ssin.>' features. ° The person, thus . circumstantially introduced at this portion of our 1m'- •tory, was Mr. Kdwui-d Wall, known to some as Ned Wall, and to others, especially those who had raudo My acquaintance out, \Vost durino- the i'ikc's Peak rush, as Pug-nosed 1 "Ned. Mr. Ned Wall'had. at an cur] v period of his career, done faith 1'uf service to her majesty in various of her majesty's .jails. Jn the result Air. •Nod Wall came to look upon his native land, where the liberty to stmil v,-as so shamefully denied" the subject, as a very hot-bed of oppression, and tho fledgling Hlueskin winged ~tway to the freer fields of the "far Most. Such is tho perversity of into, however, that Mr. Nod Wall -.inadq tho amu/ing discovery, thut those who obtain gold bv simply di->" ging it from the earth," objected to having it taken from them without their leave, by a young man in whoso welfare they took no special interest. Mr. Nod Wall would man's face was swathed in a hand kerchief, as though he was suffering from a toothache, and ho was standing at tho cud of tho rather dark hall. The two last mentioned personages must have arrived during tho night, as no one had seen them enter the house. The tradesmen "soon became convinced, not only that Mr. Sylvan us Thompson obtained his supplies from London, but also that he was laying in a considerable store. He was con" tinually journeying to and from London in his dog-cart, ami on his return invariably brought with him a collection of parcels and boxes of all kinds and shapes. Sonic of these seemed evtn to be of considerable weight, for, one day, when Mr. Sylvanus Thompson was resting his horse in front of the "Greyhound," a lad playfully put Jits hand underneath one of them, and found it too heavy for his boyish strength. Tt was written down for moist" sugar, and rotten bad moist sugar it must have been, the grocer said, to be so heavy. With all that. Mr. Sylvanus Thompson, his journeying*, and his idios.yn- cracies. excited but faint interest in the neighborhood. The river was swarming with boating men uud their ladies, and then-joyous laughter rang over the tranquil waters. The innkeepers and lodging-house proprietors had their hands full, uud Mr. Sylvanus Thompson's nearest neighbor, Sir William Cuthbertson, was represented only by the grim-visagcd attendant, who seemed- to bo attending to nobody or nothing but Ins patient, who asked no questions and permitted no chatter, and by Lucy, \\\\o. never for a moment, left, her side of The Nest. George Machine, with his experiences as a miner fresh in .his mind, bit upon the plan of digging an. underground mine from Keodon Lodge to The Nest, and blowing Lord Clove, with his dangerous memory, into atoms. George Machine was not a man to do things by halves, or without oaro- lul consideration, livery point had been weighed, talked over, and decided upon with due deliberation. To the servants at The Boltons the information had been vouchsafed that their masters were taking a, short, tour in the country, and Mr. Edward Wall was left in charge in their absence. Nobody had scon them enter licedori Lodgv, uud nobody would seo them leave. The only certainly, on several occasions, have boon strung up by the nock until dead, had not the powerful intervention of Mi: George Maclano saved him from •untimely extinction. Mr. Geor-'o Maclano had found Mr. Mod Wall »n •unscrupulous but useful swoop, ready to do any dirty work, as lone as his belly was filled, and in addition to that, neat with his lingers and glib with his tongue, an excellent bar- gainer, and a stony-hearted task- piaster to those placed under his charge. In tho oml, Pug-nosed Ned rcblossomed into Mr. Edward 'Wall, •and bocnino a hybrid between a private secretary and a valet to both the MacJanos, who, in that capacity, •took him with them to Kuropc. On tho evening of tho day when Mr. Kdward Wall hud inspected Roe- don Lodge, the Machines wore closeted with their representative at Tho Boltons. Nod exhibited his plan of the lodge, and of tho adjoining cottage and grounds, and pointed out tho exact location of tiio room which Herbert was lying. George's coldly glittering oyo •voured ovory lino, every mark. "I guess it's all right, Ned," ho said, at last. "Only yow'vo got to make suro of yo\vr "measurements— dead sartin sure. Wo mus'n't get wrong, right or left an inch. Yew'll go down tomorrcr, an' hire that cottage, and pay him three months' rent on tho nail, and if ho wants ref- ^eronccs, say yow'ro u stranger, away, were ex- young man's doing so Mr. tho one mis- in dc- ., person upon whose shoulders tho crime would bo laid would be Mr. Kdward Wall, and ho was promised Jivo thousand pounds and twelve hours' start to get Tho actual gold and notes" liibited bcfo.-o tho groedj- oyes, and in George Maclano made take in his otherwise nicely calculated arrangements. He allowed Mr. Kdward Wall to see thai, a very much larger sum in sovereigns and notes was kept in the strong box at Tho Boltons. The murderous plan was simple enough. Thoy would lay two three- hour fuses to make suro of .success, in case by any possible accident ono of these should fail. Thoy would re- snme their own ganiicnts, and iu Jhc middle of the night walk as far as Windsor where they would take the early morning train for same station along the Great Western line, and thence protend to be engaged on a walking tour. In the meantime, tho mine would have ox- pjodod and annihilated Lord C'levo. Thoy had never been scon in the business, and could not bo suspected As to Mr. Kdward Wall, it was his own interest to got away and savo his neck. ^ Tho ground had boon measured by Nod Wall, and in tho dead of tho night George himself climbed tho dividing wall, and made .sure of his position. Ho could not possibly fail in direction or disposition. The lower room soon «s , - - „--, an' leave him a hfty-pound note as yewr bond. An', mind yow, it's five an' twenty thousand golden dollars as yow'ro workin' for, so yew jest n'x up yewr hindsight, an' t'ek kocr that yew don't get euchred, nohow." A diabolical smile lit up his face. "Wo'vo got it all fixed an square now, Dave,* ho exclaimed. "It only wants the pluck an' a week's hard work, an' I guess we'll stop his jaw. forever. Ho won't remember nothin' about Dick Ashland, nor nobody else, when we've dono with him, yow bet" CIIAPTEK X. There were not more than a dox.cn residences along the lane where Kec- <lan Lodge was situated, and tho inhabitants of none of those took any interest in the fact that the little furnished house had been let. The •three tradesmen—the butcher, the baker, and the grocer— who called; were told by Mr. Sylvanus Thompson, as Mr. Kdward Wall chose to •*;aU himself, that he obtained his supplies from London, and that a daily fresh quartern loaf, and a 'rather unusually large supply of eggs, butter, and milk were all 'that was required- Mr. Sylvanus Thompson had one friend staying with him, who, the tradesmen imagined, was ailing, as he never, on any occasion, showed himself. There was also, so &o tradesmen tola one another, g, room soon assumed tho appearance of a casomuted breastwork in n-ar time — with its furniture piled in ono corner, the carpe taken up, tho floors partly removed, the great, black, gaping hole in the centre, with the excavated earth heaped against the walls, and numer ous parcels and boxes, containing gunpowder and guncotton, stacke? ready for use. Diggers' and miners tools were stretched all over tho place. The only article of furniture which remained in use was a mahogany table, scratched, soiled and damaged, and two equally ill- used chairs, the rod damask covers of which wore torn and stained beyond repair. instead of a week, twelve interminable days passed bo fore they saw themselves near tho end of their scheme. It was a lovely summer night, and all the world aVound was hushed in balmy sleep, when the two Maclanes emerged from their fiendish hole, utterly tired and worn out, but exultant with a hellish joy at the nigh approach of the result. The mine was dug. Kight underneath Lord Clove's chamber a space of some rour foot cubed had been duo- out, and this was in the course of tho morrow to be filled with explosives. harly in the morning Ned Wall was to receive his livo thousand pounds and to bo allowed to escape; in the evening the fuses wero to bo laid, and three hours after that tho earl of C'levo would no longer be able to remember anything. The evening was warm and the perspiration was standing in great drops on the two wretched 1 faces. They re»re$hed themselves with their solves on their beds. Fifteen utes, after,wards*they.,wore both snor'-> ,ing souhdfy. • Ko.w it would have been an astonishing fact if Mr. Kdward Wall, had been able to act honestly even towards hist companions in crime. Mr. Kdward Wall was a thief by education and profession. Thieves havo, like other mortals, a shrewd perception of quantities in arithmetic, and Mr. Kdward Wall conceived the idea that it would be more profitable to steal the larger sum of money at The Boltons, than to be contented with tho smaller ono offered him by tho Maelanes. Perhaps, who knew, ho might bo able to steal both, and that would certainly bo the most satisfactory arrangement. In addition to that Mr. Kdward Wall had been turning over in his mind the murderous scheme, and its clangers to his precious nock. An apparently brilliant idea struck him. If Lord Clove were blown to smithereens, tho person immediately implicated would bo himself, and pursuit would bo hot and furious after him; but if he were to hoist Messrs. Machine with their own petard and blow them to atoms instead it might so happen that the public would say "Serve the wretches right. They fell into their own trap." Mr. Kdward Wall had passed his boyhood under an export professor 111 tho art of picking pockets. He strengthened his nerves by hu^o draughts from the remaining brandy bottles,and then, taking off his shoos, he stole upstairs. Tho two men were sleeping soundly. Ned knew the disposition of tho room perfectly, and groping his way about as noiselessly as a cat,he crept to George Machine's bedside, and from underneath his pillow, with a cleverness and delicacy only possible to the experienced pickpocket, he took the latter's waistcoat without so much as ruffling a breath of the sleeper. Jn the pocket of that garment he found the bunch of keys among which ho know would bo, one that opened tho strong box at Tho Boltons, and he replaced tho waistcoat as softly and as unperceivedlv as ho had taken it. Hanging over tho chair by the sleeping man's bed, was his coat, and Mr. Wall, without further ado drew from his pocket tho leather wallet which ho know contained the notes that were to bo his reward on tho morrow. Then, without u breath, ho stole downstairs again and assured himself by the light of a small shaded lamp that he was really in possession of tho object of his search. All this being done with a no-it- noas and doliboratcnoss that stamped him as an expert pickpocket of high proficiency, Mr. Wall cut, with a- big jack knife the .strings of tho parcels containing tho gunpowder and removed the already open tops of tho boxes filled with tho same explosive and with guucotton. Ho spread heaps of this in a semi-circle on tho lloor. Behind this ho piled the rest of tho hellish material,, and filled tho crevices with loose gunpowder. Then ho put the heavy boards of the broken lloor on the center lot and overtopped those u"'ain with a few shovelfuls of the clayey earth lying in the corner of tho room Ho did his work noiselessly, nothin^ clanged or fell, and it was all <-om" plotod with barely a sound. As if to satisfy a. spirit of daintiness, ha washed his hands and face, combed his hair, and brushed his clothes and i gave a glimpse into a small pocket mirror to bo sure that no speck soiled his face. Then he took from tho packet containing thorn, half a dozen fuses and cut thorn at tho point marked three houis. It was 10 o'clock and ho lighted tho devilish things and so placed them that their ends wore well inserted among tho looso pile, lie calculating that ho could reach Tho Boltons and be away again before they would do their appointed, work.

It exhaustively reviews the facts, laws and precedents, justifies Stevens' actions, except in proclaiming the protectorate, and finds nothing irregular in the appointment of Blount, but in effect says the evidence taken by the committee under more favorable cir- cumstancea leads the committee to different conclusions than those which J>u formed.

Third—That the order of Blount to Admiral Skerrett to lower the dag was unlawful and susceptible of being-construed as unfriendly to the provisional government, ant' they regard the intercourse of Blount and Willis with*" tho deposed queen aa violative of international law and unwarranted. Fourth—They consider that the president had no right to reopen the predetermined legality of the provisional government.
