The mist of the morning still hung
heavi'y on the mountain top, aboe the
village of RedcltfT, but the roads which
led towards it were crowded with the
varied population of "the surrounding
country Item far and near. At Ales
bury the shops were cloned, the l.a ro
uter of the blacksmith laid upon its an
vil not a wagon of any description
was to be seen in the street, and even
the bar of the tavern was lockrd, and
the key tone with its proprietor toward
the cliff, as a token of an important era
which was without a parallel in the an
nals of the place. And save here and
there a solitary head looktot through a

ill-natured dog, either seeming but hall

he whole village presented a picture
of desertion and silence, that had for
ever been unknown before.
Dot in proportion as you drew near
the ponderous clifTs.in the mid t of which
the little town of Redcliff was tituated,

and all living, moving and creeping

His name was John Creel, his place
of residence said to be ia Virginia. He
had been taken up while travelling from
tlie northward to hi home, and tried
and convicted at the countj town some
miles distant, for the murder of a fel
low traveller, who had borne his com
pany from the lakes, who was sscer
tained to have a large sum of money
with him, and who was found in the
room in which he slept, at a country inn,
near Redclioe. with his throat cut.
Creel always had protested his inno
cence, declaring that the deed was per
octrated bv some one while he was a

Called out by allusions to tricks re
sorted to in Massachuaetts, the editor
injg reminiscences respecting the period
ol hi puhlic services as Sheriff:
When Sheriff of this city, the limits
were only one hundred and fifty aires.
Houses on the limits commanded a
higher rent for. "t bote who could pay,
and for those who could uot psy their
sufferings were intolerable. To me
chanics it was pecolisrly distressing.
and the whole system worked bad for
debtor and creditor. - Lnticing persons
off the limits, confined .for heavy sums
and with good bail wat an organized

and ever the lines, or could decoy him
in any manner Irom the bound". I
have know women- engaged to stop a
debtor and interett him in her story by
a modest address, a tale ,of woe, and
lead step by step; until unconsciously
he had patted the fatal boundary in
sight of the acovt wha lodged IntWina
lion against him. Again, all the arts
of beauty and fascination were employ
ed and bountifully paid for to lure the
debtor beyond the line and thus entrap
him. tiitls have pretended to fall in
fits on oue side ef the pavement that
the unfortunate debtor's humanity might
be aroused, and he cross from the oih
er side to aid them. In short the abu
ses were so numerous, and the ben. fit
so doubtful, by this 150 acre limit sys
tern, Hut Iwent-jto-work to make thit
manifest to the 'Legislature, and they
made the whole city the limits.
Under the new system many amusing
things occurred. The ex-Shsriff was
accustomed never to look up a debtor
"if he could procure any animal in the
shape ef bail." One man used to to
ball for all his countrymen, among the
Sheriffs "particular and valued politi
cal friends the Irish." " . ; -j '
