Gre;en, the Reformed Gambler, recently made an excursion through the Auburn Slate Prison. He gives the following account ofhis interview with a murderer: “On my return to the prison office I was intro­ duced! to the chaplain, Rev. O. E . Morril, which reverend gentleman informed me that a man bv the name of Wyatt, then confined in one of the cells for the murder of Gordon, on the 16th of Marc h, in the Auburn State prison, hail confps-. sed to him that he had lived a gambler several yearn in the South and West, and he would like I should call upon hiip. I accom p anied him to the c ell ofthe murderer. T h e door was thrown open upon its grating hinges, when tho reverend gentleman introduced me as an acquaintance of his w h o had travelled South several years, and thought that he ( \Y v lu)-w o u lti be glad m con- verse\with him. ‘ He was happy to see me antT asked me to be seated. After a shori discourse relative to the different classes of men then in confinement, I asked him what he followed in his travels through the South. He told me gam­ bling. I asked him how long he had been en­ gaged in that nefarious business? He said twelve or thirteen years. 1 asked him if he knew many gamblers? He said he did. 1 1 asked him if he ever knew one by the name of Green? He said he did. I asked his name? He answered ‘John said he knew him in 18- 32, 3, 4, and 5, and saw him in 1842, in St. Louis. 1 asked him if he was intimate with Green 7 He said he knew him as one gambler did another. I asked him if 1 favored him ?— He said if I would stand in the light he would tell me. I did so. He said I looked like the man. I told him I was the man, but that I nev­ er knew him by the name of Wyatt. He said I did not; that Wyatt was not his real name — He then told me another which was not his real name, and asked me if I did riot hear of a man’s being murdered near St. Louis in lhe year 1841 and of two men being arresied, both tried ar.d convicted, one having a new trial granted him, the other being hung. I told him that I thought I had. He said he was the man that had the new trial granted, and was acquitted, ‘and,’ said h e , ‘they hung the wrong man; he was innocent; I am the guilty man : but they hung him and cleared me.’ ‘But,’ said I, you were under a different name still, at that time.’ He said, ‘Yes, by none of those names do you know mej but my real name you are familiar with — “Your name,’ said he, :I knew in the year 1832: the gamblers called you John, but Jonathan is your real name.’ My curiosity was highly e x ­ cited at the stran g e m a n a g e m e n t of the m u r d e r ­ er. But you may imagine the increase of it when he told me his real name. llooked at the murderer and could scarelv believe my own eyes; yet he stood before me a living marvel. I have pledged secresy as to his real name until after his execution. I inter­ rogated him on his first steps in vice, and how he became so hardened. He told me to rem e m ­ ber the treatment ho had received from the Lynchers’ lash at Vicksburg. I did, but my eyes could scarcely credit the reality. 1 had known him in 1832 3-4 and in the early part of ’35. as a bar-k e e p e r in V icksburg. H e was never a shrew d card player, but at that time was considered an inoffensive youth. T h e coffee­ house he kept was owned by North, vvho with four others was executed on the 5th of July, 1835, by Linch laiv. W yatt and three others were token on the morning of the 7 th, stripped, and one thousand lashes given to the four, tar- red and feathered,,and put inloa canoe and set adrift on the Mississippi river. It makes my blood curdle and iny flesh quiver to think of the offering condition of these unfortunate men, set adiift on the morning ofthe 7th of July, with the broiling sun upon their tnanoled bodies — T w o died in about two hours after they were set afloat. W y a tt and another remained with their hands and feet bound forty hours, suffer- • v m g more than tongue can tell or pen describe, when they were picked up by some slave ne­ groes, who started wiih the*two survivors to their quarters. His companion died before they arrived. Wyatt survives to tell the horrors ol the Lincher’s lash. He told me seven murders lad been occasioned by their unmerciful treat­ ment to him, and one innocent man hung. I mow his statements to be true, for I had known lim before 1835, and his truth in other pariicu- ars cannot he doubted. H e m u rdered his sev­ enth man, for which crime he will be executed.

T I I E AGED S I B E R I A N E X I L E . Our readers may remember that some lime ago accounts from St.Petersburgh mentioned the return from Siberia of an exile, whose advanced age, together with the romantic incidents of his life, excited dpep interest and sympathy. The exile was Major Cheglovsky, who, in the reign of Catharine II, was banished to Siberia for ha­ ving incurred the displeasure of the redoubtable Potemkin, whose rival he was in the affections of a Polish lady of high rank. On his return to St. Pelersburgh, about a year and a half ago, Major Cheglovsky was presented to the Em p e ­ ror and the Imperial family. H e was then a- bout ninety-five years of age, and had passed nearly seventy years of his life in exile. The romantic circumstances which led to his banish­ ment are thus related. W h ilst in the full enjoyment of the favor of bis imperial mistress, Potemkin,who never real­ ly loved Catharine, became deeply enamoured of the. Polish Princess Zumovsky. T h e Prin­ cess then was what the Countess WoronzofT Arshkoff, now is, the sovereign arbiter of fash­ ion, and the star of the saloons of St. Peters- gh. She inspired Potemkin with a violent passion, to which it is believed she herself was not wholly indifferent. Potemkin at all events, whether with or with­ out reason, flattered himself that he had made some advance iri the good graces ofthe ladv. when to his dismay he was struck by a marked change in her manner towards him. She sud. denly became cold, reserved and serious. It was remarked that this lady’s altered manner, was dated from the time ofthe fire in St. Peters- burgh, on which occasion she had been exposed to great danger nnd had, indeed, been indebted for her life io the heroism of a young officer, u ho, when the flames were rapidly spreading through every part of the building, rushed into her box and bore her out in safety. Potemkin was deeply mortified atthe lady’s coldness, and being determined to ascertain its cause, he surrounded the Princess by an imper­ ceptible but vigilant espionage- However, no circumstance of any importance was brought to light, and Potemkin was beginning to console himself with the belief that the Priucpss’s alter­ ed manner was the mere result ol caprice and coquetry, when an incident occured which ban­ ished ft om his mind ail doubt of the fact that he was supplanted by a rival. On the 8th of March, 1773, the E mpress Cath­ arine was seated at one of the Hermi’age Pala­ ces, looking at some military evolutions, per­ formed by the Imperial Guards and the four reg­ iments o f Prpobajuiski. Beside the Empress sat the Princess Zumvoskv, and behind stood Count Potemkin. The second batallion of the Preobajuiski had just reached the middle of the bridge of Troist, when the Princess leaned over the rail of the balcony, as if anxiously watching forsom e tine; and either voluntarily or by ac­ cident dropped one o f her gloves. A young of­ ficer vvho had raised his eyes to the palice win­ dow, and who saw the glove drop, received it on the point of his sword, and after pressing it to bis lips thrust it into his bosom. T h e Princess colored deeply, and Potemkin, fixing his eyes upon her, said sternly— “That officer, madame, has enriched himsell with one of the g loves; for whom is the other destined ?” “For you Count” replied the lady, recover­ ing her self-possession, “ I f you are so gallant as to attach any valhe to such a Irifle.” ‘•Give it to me,” said Poternkin, and putting the glove into his pocket, he withdrew. On the evening of that day, a feldjagger atid two cossacks proceeded to the abode of Major Cheglovsky, A t sight of them th e officer turn ed pale, fur he w e l l knew what such a visit por­ tended. “You must accompany me,” said the feldjag ger. “ Whither?” “That is a secret” “Where are your order* r “Here j read \them.” “W ill the journey be l o o £ ? ” ' ' said the Major, “I obey.

One of the cossacks drove the Ielique. md the other sal on the wooden seat he being on one side of the Major, and the feld­ jagger on lie other. The cossack who set on the wooden feat soon foil asleep, and fora mo­ ment, the iWijor conceived the design ofstrang- ing hint an attempting his escape; but the bronze eye-1 d ofthe f-ldjagger never closed throughout tie wholeofthenight. They reach­ ed Pochezirkoe; and Cheglovsky ventured to enquire wet er they had reached iheir desiina “Not yet,” teplied the feldjagger. They >d hoi ies and again galloped off; Vystar- ka and Puntfkoe were successively passed; and at each relaji the Major with anxiety increasing, in proportion to the distance, laconically interro­ gated his psc'irt. Every inquiry was answered by the tertiblfi “not yet.” Whilst paisingthronghthe forest of Yolosga, tho ielique ivis followed by a flock of hungry wolves, wbocontinued in sight for the distance of several ’Feists. The feldjagger look no no­ tice of them', t being an incident of common oc­ currence onsnch journeys. To be devoured by wild beasts,Ifrozen to death, or buried in a tomb of snow,are lfew ofthe many horrors that await travellers inthose desert wilds. Imagination can picture rcthing so desolate as the intermin­ able succession of white plains, whose weary uniformity is Woken only at distant intervals by a monastery constructed in the Atlantic style, a hut of twister) bamboo, or a gigantic barren mountain. Tbp miserable journey lasted ten days, and Cheglovsky was almost worn out by fatigue, \vhen the Ielique halted at the bounda­ ry o f a dreary steppe, and drew up before some huts which appeared m o re like the dens of bears than any human habitations. \ We are r,o ,v at our journey’s end,” said the feldjagser. ' T h e Major\urned deadly pale. “ Im p o ssiblef’ he excLim ed, convulsively pressing the hand of his sinister companion.— ‘You do not intend to abandon me here in this horrid wilderness?

For in e r e v ’s s a k e o n d u c t m e b a c k to S t .

Cheglovsky trembled under the influence of violent emotions; but summon­ ing from therecollection of his love the courage which had ready forsaken him— “ Well, sir,” said he “tell Jen. Potem k in that 1 fear Siberia less than I e :eem his present. This gift will render me hn-jpy during my exile.” The fcldjajgcr bowed, and mounted the teli que, which apidly drove off.

Finding him resolved on the lot’e jlDirdiir, J — ^ 6 n clqi £4 l b givq him something which would satisfy him, accor­ dingly put up two powders of tartar emetic; bf five grains each; telling him it was necessary for him take a powder as well as the girl, irr order to procure the desired effect. “But 1 be in lofe now, toctor, ahd does hot need any of de powder to make me lofe rftore' as I do.

T h e fellow went away well pleased with the favorable termination ofhis love suit; and I thought little more on the subject, except occa­ sionally to laugh to my&elf at the physical ef­ fect the love powders would be likely to pro­ duce on the amorous dutchman and his dulcinea^ How Lr they were likely to produce the de­ sired effect I could not of course determine; but that they woulJ not finally prove injurious to the health ofthe parties, I was well satisfied. It was somewhat like a y e a r a f t e r this, that walking one day in the street, I came plump up­ on my patient.
