for which tho New York wharfs are so col
ohratcd, and which are frequented by that
clasq of persons who como under tho head
of loafers, thcro sat a soliiary Individual
whoso age betokened that ho was not accus.
tomed to enjoy his own society ; tho atmos.
phero of tho bar room was redolent of tho
perfumes of long nines, and that nectar of
groggorlcs, Tom und Jorry. Tho candle
shed a mellow light through tho smoko that
had been made by former customers', hut
was now beginning to roll away ; our friend,
though indifferently well dressed, bore about
him tho appearance of ono'who would stoop
to anv low trick to entrap- Iho unwary. He
had been in tho habit of picking up the
dimes or half dimes that any ono could le
induced to slake ; on this night ho had had
no customers. Funds were low the night
was wearing away, and ho was about to tie.
fiart, when thoro entered a long, dangling
ooking fellow, with straight flaxen locks, an
old wool hat sat far back on his head, and a
mouth which, though capacious enough, had
by accident, or a freak of nature, boon pin
ced more on ono side than in front of the
faco. He was dresne in Linsev dved of a
dirty yellow color, and his traictrrfooni, the
