A Tale of Long - Island. FOKTPSES OF A'COUIV'rKY - BOV; Incidents in Town and his .'Id rent arc at the South. BY J. R. S Chapter I. Oa'E bright cool morning in tho autumn of 183, ti country market wagon, which also performed tho office of stago - coach for those whoso means or dispositions were luimblo enough to bo satisfied with its rndo accommodations, was standing, with the horses harnessed before it, in front of a. village inn, on tho Long Island turnpike As the geography of some reader may be at fault to toil tho exact whereabouts of this locality, I may as well say.that Long Island is a part of the State of New York, and stretches out into the Atlantic, just south - eastward of the city which is the great emporium of our westorn world. The most eastern county of the island has many pretty towns and hamlets ; tho soil is fertile, and tho pdoplo, though not refined or versed iu city lifn, are very intelligent and hospitable. It was in that eastern county, on the sido nearest tho sea, that the road ran on which tho markot - wagou just mentioned was going to traverse. The driver was in the bar - room, taking a glass of liquor.
