A man named Allrcd Helson (or Elston,) a na- ilvia of Melbonme, and well known In the neighborhood of Castle Qonlng^n, undertook to walk on six saOiesdvo dayt the distance of 70 miles a day. Hecomfflenctdhl8pe^ formanoe on Uonday, Jnly 20, and completed It with ease on Satorday, the S6th alt, doing It within the specUtd time. The seventy miles were usually walked-in abont fontteen hours, bat on one of the days they were ooa- pleted in twelve. A neat variety o( ophilon was eotat- talned as to the posalUlIty of his encceedlng In Us at- tempt Ifhllst on travel he took very little food exeepi beef tea, or a saall bit of mutton half cooked and a little etlmnlant oocaslonally. In statnre he Is about the mid- dle height, thin, extremely moscalar, and having a aome> ' what Intelligent countenance. On his reachug Uel> b^nme the streets were thronged with people to see hla pass, who rewarded him with a conalderaole amonnt of moiiey. Taklns into consideration the rough country roads which he nad to traverse, some of which especially near Ohellaston, have recently been made—the olstknce which he walked and the apparent ease with whlth .lt wait accomplished, his feat was certainly very extraordt. naiv, and we ehonld greatly qnestlon whether many hctats could be found to perform the same diatance In the tame time. 'When on travel Eeleon had a alight swing with ' his arms, and appeared to be going at a steady rate of some three miles an honr, and It was only when aay on^ attempted to keep np with bim that his real p^ee was perceptible. Hla usual pace was probibly.frcm ^ox'to six mUes an honr. We hear that he has now nndartiken . to ran a (Hendly match of ten miles against tin of the best runners In Melbourne: he Is to start and ccnilhia ' rling the whole diatance, whilst the Uelbdnnie bob' to be placed at intervale of a mile apart, the fint of whom Is .to start and mn until he comes to the second, who then takes np the running nntQ he reatdies tlie tUid, and so On to the end of the distance.

This waa his object, as he apparently pnrposed to leap evelr Into tny queen's side andmake war on my left wiqg. I wasnotnaprepared for this; I had determined npon my oonne^ one which I Imagined would startle even my glim adversaiy. No sooner had he laonohed hla Snlj^ta over my pawns on my qneen's dde, than I rapidly changed my.plaa of operations—I Immediately dessrted my en- trenohments, and commenced an attack pobting directly at the Sable UaJestyhlmselC It requlreo all the care and the Intlenulty of my opponent to save hlmselfihls position was extremely delicate, as moat of the snperlor foroea of Black were far from the scene of action, snd It was not possible to bring them to the assistance of the fated HhIb defence thronghont the tetrlble attack was admlia- ble; at one moment I would fliney that chsokmate was Inevitable In a few movea; but by some moatarlv eombl- natloa on his part, he wonld extnoate himself from the hnpendlng danger. At last, to my niter disoomfltnre, he anchored' his Uonarch aaf ely on bis king's dde, behind his pawns; now, I remained in the aame condition he had been previously; I had a almUar attack to repel, though one not quite so dangerous, I imagined. I little expected what followed. His next moves came upon me like flashes of lightning. After acme'strangely executed manaaavres he won both my Books by divergent checks with the Qaeen. I groaned In de^ialr. A tmlle oftrlainphillamlaated hla ghastly featnrea He spoke: "Boea Ur^ M consider it fit to eontinae the partlel" Theee words stnnlf nie to the qalok; the excessive bit- terness with which they were uttered oaused my blood to boll within me; vrith an effort I swallowed thelnsalt with the beat apparent naoe, and was about to reply alone, by reslgaing the matcb. . ' ; At this very moment, however, a door opened In the ooroor of the apartment, and how was I astonnded to be- hold Eugenie I my luti Eugenie, enter, aooompanled by two female attendanta; (that roadside inoldeAt waa then a reality I) she grew pale as lier wandering gate met mine. Olamord's dark eye fell on her'a "80 you have come hither to witness your boasted (Champion's defeat." "Nay, my Lord, hla viotoiy." "Behold then," he replied, motlodnB her to the Oheas board. "This la the last," he added. . She came to my aide, uid dlently examined the game; those lips approached my ear.

It was my play; eome bold and Immediate ocUao on my part was indispensable. At this Juncture my antagonist exhibited vldble dgns of pertorbaUon. Hla eye teemed fixed on vaoaney In one portion of the apartment; now and then a wild frantie speech would rum ftom his lips. At last he exclalnted: " Haunt me not, young man; I am not yonr'mur- derer." The words horrified me—my companion had been his vlctlffll his language betraieid him.
