-- Poetrp. [Poetry] THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1850. SY THOUGHTS. 5 rosy morning skies Still chant a glorious note, Wild harmonies yet rise From many a tiny throat; The sun still shines as brightly, And the fic ds [fi ds] appear as gay, Although thou hast so lightly Cast thy plighted faith away. Think not because I lov'd [love'd] thee, And once believed thee fond, That lingering love hath moved me To mourn the fragile bond ; Far better it were broken, Like the wave upon the shore, Than those fatal words be spoken That should link us evermore. Fair nature clothed in smiles, Rich joys doth lavish still, On those she thus beguiles Of cares that else would kill. The sun will shine as brightly, And the fields appear as gay, Although thou hast so lightly Cast thy plighted faith away. G.T. D. october, [October] 1890. To THE AUTHOR OF A SUMMER SONG.

But all which I saw and heard of his Majesty's heiress presumptive had touched me on points which readers of this personal history will not be slow to understand. I had seen her, when a child, walk lovingly hand-in-hand with a female of her own age, which made me think she partook of my own childhood's notion of friendship. I afterwards heard some romantic stories (or what those who are not lovers might call such) of the evidences of her mutual regard for her cousin, which reminded me (for what does the heart think of rank in such cases of my own first loving attachment. I beheld her, as it were, always in company, either with friendship, or with love, or with her mother under which third aspect she was also associated with the earliest of my affections; and when this personage, thus interesting to me, came to be 4 sovereign, I found her twice coming with her husband to see the play of the poor battered author that loved her, and who would have given half its profits to have been able to tell her what he felt.-Leigh Hunt's Auti- [At- Autobiography] biography.

The cook did not hesitate to venture a strong opinion against the sanity of a man who might, if he chose, be snugly ensconced in the cabin out of larm's [arm's] way, but would re- [remain] main upon deck, in momentary danger of being blown overboard. The cook's theory was not ill-supported by the subject of it; for he was continually placing himself in all manner of odd places and grotesque postures. Sometimes he scrambled up on the cuddy roof; then he rolled down again on the saloon deck 3 that was not high enough for him, for when the ships sunk into a trough of the sea, he stood on tip-toe, trying to look over the nearest wave. A consultation was held in the cuddy, and a resolution was unanimously passed that the amateur of wind and water (which burst over him every minute) was cither [either] an escaped lunatic or-a Col- [College] lege [Lee] Professor. It was resolved xem. [em] con. that he was the latter; and from that moment nobody was surprised at anything he might choose to do, even while the Hibernia was labouring in what the mate was pleased to call the most lively manner. The Professor, however, to the disgust of the sufferers below, who thought it was enough to feel the height of the waves, without going to the trouble of measuring them, pursued his ob- [observations] servations [Conservative] in the face of the contempt of the official conclave above mentioned. ' That his investiga- [investigation- investigations] tions [tins] may be the more readily impressed on the reader's mind, we conclude with a summary of them.

THE Present Coxpirion [Expiring] or MEcHANics' [Mechanics] INstITUTES. [Institute] -Amid all the changing of views and plans, the con- [constant] stant [stand] establishment of new institutions, and the gradual decay of some among ihe [the] old, there are now in England about 400 such institutions, which, with the help of more than half a million volumes of facts and fictions, poetry and prose-of about 4,000 lectures given every year on all conceivable subjects-of classes for instruc- [instruct- instruction] tion, [ion] from the English alphabet to the Greek classics, and from the multiplication table to the differential calculus-of reading and news rooms, supplied with all the leading newspapers and other periodicals of the day-of great annual soirees, where lawyers and divines, merchants and manufacturers, lords and commons, pro- [proclaim] claim the advantages of knowledge and the blessings of education-are endeavouring, with badly filled trea- [tea- treasuries] suries, [series] and more loud sounding patronage than actual support, to give instruction of some kind or other to the public in general, and their hundred thousand members in particular. But the condition in which nearly all these institutions are now found is very dif- [if- different] ferent [front] from what the views expressed at their formation in 1823-4-5 [W-4-5] would lead us to expect. Though still generally retaining the name Mechanics, they have never been attended to any considerable extent by that class. A visit to any one institution will show at once that the members generally do not belong to the work- [working] ing classes. In the library will be found not many mechanics taking out scientific books, but young men, clerks, shopkeepers, apprentices, &c., enquiring for works of a lighter kind in the school the same class will be found, but not always mechanics, studying the principles of the arts they practise; in the reading and lecture rooms very few fustian jackets are to be seen, scarcely one son of Vulcan, just emerged from the smoke of a forge; but those present bear unmis- [unis- unmistakable] takable [table] traces of belonging to a very different class, a class usually considered in the eyes of the world to rank above workmen in the social scale--Chambers' Papers for the People. TRUE RELIGION Not GLoomy.-Although [Gloomy.-Although] the traveller's first and chief delight is the recollection of his home, which lies as a cordial at his heart, and refreshes him everywhere and at all seasons, this does by no means prevent him from taking that pleasure in the several objects presenting themselves on the road which they ave capable of affording, and were, indeed, intended to PROGRESS OF A HOLMFIRTH MAN UNDER DIFFICULTIES. The following history of a well-known public character is copied from a series of papers at present appearing in the Daily News, entitled Mornings at the Mills [Mills] Elijah Dixon is by birth a Yorkshireman. On the bleak and stony hills about Hepworth, Holmfirth, and Kirkburton, in the West-Riding, the family were located for several centuries. They were a race of reformers. One of his ancestors, it was said, was a famous captain in the civil war, and raised at his own expense a troop of horse for the commonwealth. Mr. Dixon's father was a great woollen merchant and manufacturer, engeged [engaged] in the then very hazardous but profitable trade with Flanders. The out of the French revolution and the war ruined him completely. The greater part of his wealth lay at Antwerp, when that city fell into the power of the victorious republicans. Embarrass- [Embarrassments] ments [rents] came on. Seeing how matters stood, his agents in London, instead of aiding him to break the blow, looked only to their own immediate interest, and without remorse sacrified [sacrifice] their client. One fine morning, the Yorkshire manufacturer announced to his family that he was a bankrupt with considerable liabilities. His wife, who had been a celebrated Yerkshire [Yorkshire] beauty half a dozen years before, heard the news in silence. Shortly afterwards it was observed that she was nowhere to be seen. Her husband went into her room. She was not there. Her children, alermed, [Medal] began to cry; still she did not come. At length they went into the dyehouse, where they found her-quite dead. Proud as she was beautiful, weak as she was violent, she was unable to bear the reverse of her husband's fortunes. She had retired into the dyeing rooms, and strangled herself with her handkerchief Not to dwell on this painful incident more than is needful in order to give you an idea of the influences under which the great match manufacturer quitted his native hills, I will only add that the bereaved husband, unable to endure the sight of daily objects which reminded him so forcibly of all that he had lost, took his little orpaned [opened] children by the hand, and led them into Lancashire, with a view to their going into the new trade in cotton. Cir- [Circumstances] cumstances, [cum stances] however, prevented these intentions from being carried into effect. The ruined manufacturer had many distant and rich relatives one of whom dying without having made his will, a dispute arose as to who was the proper heir-at-law to his property. The estate was very large, and the migrating family believed them- [themselves] selves to be the true heirs. Of course I cannot pretend to know the merits of the case; sufficient for me to say the cause was thrown into the interminable gulfs of chancery. Years and years passed on, Elijah and his brothers grew up into men. In the state of chronic ex- [excitement] citement [cement] in which they lived, a settled course of educa- [Edgar- education] tion [ion] was impossible, and a defined course of action for the future was equally out of the question. To meet the necessities of daily life, one became an auctioneer, another turned preacher, a third went to France, where he remained several years superintending a workshop. Elijah busied himself a good deal with politics. He was intimate with Hunt and Cobbett, [Corbett] and was well known to all the earnest reformers of the locality. On the field of Peterloo he received a sabre stroke, and shortly after was arrested by a company of soldiers, and hurried away to prison. He desired a reform in church and state-the repeal of the corn laws, an extended suffrage, frequent parliaments-and all such desires were held to be matters of great offence by Addingtonand [Addington] Castlereagh. He remained a state prisoner for six months. This taste of the revenge which authority can always make for itself against the unsatisfied, did not cool his zeal for reform on the contrary, he became more and more ardent, preaching and writing in its favour, very much, it is reported, to the injury of his private fortunes. It was very well for him, in a worldly sense, that the two great subjects of his thoughts came to a close about the same time-the Reform Bill passed the third read- [reading] ing in the House of Lords, and the chancery suit was compromised in Westminster Hall. The one event put an end to his employment; the other to his hopes. A few hundred pounds were all that were saved out of the estate; it appears that neither branch of the family could make out a complete case, the common ancestor having been born during the interregnum in the civil wars, when the registration of births, deaths, and mar- [marriages] riages [carriages] was interrupted. At all events, the two parties compromised; and Elijah Dixon saw that his vagrant genius for mending political constitutions and showing the absurdity of the Thirty-nine Articles, must be turned into a new channel for the future. He had a taste for chemistry, and a huge love of work; two admirable qualities to begin the battle of life with anew. His first experiments led him to the manufacture of surgeons' plaster, and afterwards dia- [aid- Dillon] chylon; [Ceylon] and in these articles he soon established for himself a trade. It was at that time that a German chemist first produced the new match-a very different thing to that which the Newton Heath factory now produces in millions, being a complicated casket, very ornamental and very dear; a guinea I believe being the price at which the instrument was first sold in London. Mr. Dixon at once caught at the secret of the new dis- [discovery] covery, [cover] and accustomed to take large views of things, he resolved to devote himself to the improvement and cheapening of the match, so as to put an end to the reign of tinder, and form for himself the means of a novel and a great business. The shopkeeper in the Strand, who a few years ago sold his two boxes of lucifers [lucifer] in a week, at the rate of 10s. a box, to rich and eccentric housekeepers, little suspected that the man was then alive who would have his agents in Norway and Canada cutting down pine forests to convert the wood into phosphoric matches ----- -- - OLD PROVERBS, FROM AN OLD BOOK. A little pot, is soon hot. Harm watch, harm catch. A ROMANCE OF THE HAREM. The following singular narrative is given in a letter to the Semaphore de Marseilles -- A few years ago a Greek girl of uncommon beauty was married to Mr. Melinger, [Milliner] an English physician residing at Constanti- [Constant- Constantinople] nople, [noble] where he had acquired a high reputation. Several children were born of this marriage, which, to all appear- [appearances] ances, [aces] seemed likely to continue a happy one. Thanks to his profession and to his distinguished merits, Mr. Melinger [Milliner] received frequent visits from the highest dig- [dignitaries] nitaries [dignitaries] of the empire, and among othcrs [others] from his Excel- [Excellency] lency [ency] Fethi [Firth] Pasha, now son-in-law of the Sultan. It would appear that the doctor having discovered the existence of an intrigue between this gentleman and his wife, resolved upon quitting Constantinople, and taking the guilty one over to England but the Greek refused to submit, doubtless already bent upon other schemes, for she soon after obtained a divorce, and abandoned her children and her husband. After her divorce the con- [connection] nection [section] of Madame Melinger [Milliner] with Fethi [Firth] Pasha was but of short duration. But she shortly accomplished the conquest of Mehemet [Theme] Pasha, who had just been ap- [appointed] pointed to the governorship of Belgrade; and in order the more entirely to captivate this distinguished person- [personage] age she became a Mussulman-a [Muslin-a] circumstance which immediately induced the enamoured Pasha to take her with him to his seat of government, and finally to make her his wife. Although greatly attached to his wife, Mehemet's [Theme's] happiness was not complete, as there was reason to fear that their union would be sterile. Accord- [Accordingly] ingly, [ingle] he one day ventured a kind of reproach to his wife on the subject, who immediately replied with a smile, 'Is this the cause of your dejection, my lord why did you not mention it sooner 'How so 'Would you prefer a boy ora girl 'A boy by all means.' 'You shall have one.' After a short interval the crafty Greek feigned to be in the condition her lord desired, while every means were employed prudently to exile him from his wife's apartment. The blindness of his passion rendered this an easy task, nor did a doubt cross his mind as to the legitimacy of the infant presented to him, which he named Belgrade Bey, and the town showed itself duly sensible of its sponsorial [tonsorial] honours by the most splendid rejoicings. A short tine afterwards, his Excollency [Excellency] Mehemet [Theme] Pasha was recalled to Constantinople, and appointed ambas- [abbas- ambassador] sador [said] of the Ottoman Porte in London. But previous to his departure, he expressed a wish that he might have another boy, a brother and a companion for tho beloved Belgrade. His happiness, he said, would not be completed, unless he had two fine children almost of the same age, of whose future career he already formed the most brilliant anticipations. As she had done in the first instance, his wife replied, 'You shall have one.' 'Impossible exclaimed the husband, at first astounded. 'As truly as Mahomet is our prophet.' 'Well,' replied Mehemet, [Theme] 'God is great and it was thus that you announced my firstborn.' At the end of a month, she again declared herself enceinte, [ancient] and the pasha was the most delighted of men; but he was soon obliged to set out for London, and his wife was left at Constantinople to complete her accouchement. [acquirement] This was all the Greek desired, and using the same means as before, she presented, one fine morning, to her assembled slaves and to a few persons of her hus- [husband] band's family, a fine child of the malesex, [male sex] who received the name of Usnud [Used] Bey. After the lapse of a few days, the child fell seriously ill, and was sent by order of the physicians to Pera, [Per] under the care of its governess. Pera, [Per] as every one knows, is asuburb [suburb] of Constantinople, inhabited by the' mercantile community, and by the European ambassadors. Its air is purer than that of the city, and accordingly young Usnud [Used] was soon brought back in perfect health by his governess-the same woman who had performed the office of nurse at the birth of Belgrade. Singularly enough, however, an old black eunuch, who had brought up the pasha, possessed his entire confidence, and managed his entire house- [household] hold, could by no means recognise Usnud [Used] Bey in the child which was thus brought back, and, in the presence of several slaves, said to his mistress, 'Well, my lady, if that child be Usnud [Used] Bey, he has become singularly altered by his sojourn at Pera, [Per] among the infidels.' The mother remained silent, and carried off the child, directing a fierce glance at the eunuch. Doubt had established itself, however, in the old man's mind; moreover, he had long been enlightened with respect to his mistress's doings he knew the whole history of Belgrade Bey, and the reason he had not mentioned it to his master was, that at the time he discovered the trick, the Pasha had already grown fond of the little being whom he believed to be his son, and the eunuch had not had the courage to undeceive him. But two suppositious children in the first place, and then the impudent substitution of another child to the one which had been received as a legitimate offspring, formed a complication of knavery of which the indignant old man refused to render himself an accomplice by remain- [remaining] ing longer inactive. He betook himself to Pera, [Per] and proceeding step by step in his investigations with that cautious prudence and insinuating artifice so peculiar to the people of the East, and especially to the inmates of the harem, he succeeded in acquiring positive evi- [vi- evidence] dence [dene] of the death of the veritable Usnud [Used] Bey, and of the substitution of a child of the same age, purchased of parents in the lowest grade of life. The eunuch then returned, and, pointing to the pretended Usnud [Used] Bey, said to his mistress, 'Madam, let me beg of you to send that child back to his father-Mossul, [father-Moss] the fisher- [fisherman] man. I know all.' At these words the woman became livid, and left him, saying, 'It is well.' Shortly before the time of afternoon prayer she sent for the eunuch, and was told that he was taking a bath. No'sooner did she hear this than her project was im- [in- immediately] mediately formed. The old man, as we have said, was governor of the Pasha's household, and as such occupied a sumptuous apartment, to which a bath room was attached for his private use; it was here that his mistress sought him out. The eunuch was attended by two slaves; she dismissed them with an imperious Cream of Bunch. ENTOMOLOGY AND are men- [mentioned] tioned [toned] in Notes and Queries as an old woman's remedy for ague.

We extract from a New York contemporary of the 17th ult. the following particulars relative to Mlle. Lind - Jenny Lind continued to receive triumphant ovations in New York. Her first concert, on the evening of Wednesday, the 11th, realized [realised] 5,250 sterling, and the enthusiasm of the spectators and auditors was almost indescribable. Mademoiselle Lind 200 to the Musical Fund Society, which made her a life-member in return. MM. Loder [Older] and Benedict re- [received] ceived [received] similar honour, and M. Benedict in replying, pro- [proclaimed] claimed that in Europe he should speak of the New York orchestra as second to none. The fruits of the second concert were 4,000. The third was to take place on the 18th, [the] when Mademoiselle Lind would sing the Herdsman's Mountain Song. She was living in a quiet secluded manner at the New York Hotcl. [Hotel] She rode out every evening with her cousin and sccretary. [secretary] Invitations of all sorts were constantly coming for her, but she declined almost all. On the evening of the 12th the German Liederkranz [Lodgings] marched in procession to her residence, where they gave a vocal serenade. After the conclusion they were invited into J enny's [penny's] parlour, and a committee presented an address to her. Miss Lind listened attentively to the performance, and ex- [expressed] pressed her sincere thanks for the attention paid to her. She conversed in a friendly manner with the gentlemen, and said, among others remarks, O, Germany how beautiful, how charming it is; but where is its liberty Surely, gentlemen, you all wish to return soon to your sweet fatherland, the land of music and of poetry No, never was the unanimous answer. Here we feel happy and free, here we will become good citizens. Without poesy she asked. Oh, Fraulein you will find poesy here also. She finally expressed her desire to see the Liederkranz [Lodgings] perform a chorus in one of her concerts, to which the gentlemen readily assented. M. Benedict said he was delighted with the performance, and would compose a sourenir [resource] for the society. At the Castle-garden, on Thursday, at half-past ten a.m., the ticket auction to Jenny Lind's second concert, was proceeded with by Leedsand [Lessened] Co. There were not the same numbers nor the great excitement of the two preceding auctions, but there was a steady demand for the tickets, and they sold well. There were 6,000 dis- [disposed] posed of, at an average of 4 dollars, and there were about 500 promenade tickets sold and disposed of at 2 dollars each, thus making the proceeds of the sala [sal] amount to 26,000 dollars. Genin's [Genuine's] 225 dollars' seat was purchased by Hall and Sons at 5 dollars. The private box of Jenny Lind, con- [containing] taining [training] four seats, was purchased at 53 dollars per seat, and the corresponding box at the other side of the stage at the same price. It will be recollected that Jenny Lind's private box sold for 140 dollars, or 35 dollars each seat, at the first auction. The highest price of tickets was 9 dollars, that sum ebing [being] paid by the Irving-house for 42, and 74 dollars for eight. With these exceptions the tickets sold at from 53 dollars to 3 dollars; and Hall purchased 2,000 at 3 dollars. We have reason to know that some of the would-be aristocracy who purchased tickets and had their names announced in the papers never called for them, while others who did call and pay for their tickets were selfish enough to confine the enjoyment to themselves, and did not bring ther [the] wives and daughters. lls.

It is 70 feet long, 35 feet broad, and 5 feet high, and is lighted by three windows on the north side, by a large window on the west end, and by an oriel on the south, which commands a beautiful view of a part of the romantic environs of the city. The large west window will be filled by stained glass. On Sunday week John Overthrow, an inmate of the Magdalen Hospital, in Glocester, [Leicester] reached his 160th year. Some of the ladies of the neighbourhood, to whom the old man had become known, furnished the materials for a supper to the inmates of the hospital, in the celebration of of the eccasion.

A SMUGGLING MANG UVRE [MAN EVERY] CURtoUSLY [Curiously] DISCOVERED.- [DISCOVERED] On Friday evening as the Enterprise steamer which plies between Rotierdam, [Rotterdam] Ipswich, and Yarmouth, was entering the latter harbour, she ran against the pier, and carried away part of the woodwork of the paddle-box, discovering to the astonished custom-house officer about of manu- [man- manufactured] factured [fractured] tobacco dangling down among the paddle-work machinery, in so perilous a position that no mortal would have ever dared to search for it in such a locality.

Signor Orlandi, [Orlando] an Italian aeronaut, [Argonaut] about 420, and others less numbers. Fifteen lives have been lost altogether. In 1785 Messrs. Rozitre [Restore] and Romaine ascended from Boulogne with two balloons, a fire balloon, and a gas balloon over it The balloons caught fire and the aeronauts [aeronautic] were precipitated to the earth. Shortly after this a Venetian nobleman was thrown out of his balloon and killed. In 1802 Signor Oliveri [Liver] ascended from Orleans. His balloon burnt in the air. In 1806 M. Mosment [Moment] ascended from Lisle, using an open platform instead of a car. He fell off and was killed. In 1812 Herr Bittorff, [Bitter] a German acronaut, [account] was killed in conse- [cone- consequence] quence [Queen] of his balloon burning in the air.

Several other fatal accidents have happened to spectators of balloon asceuts, [assets] &c., but the foregoing are supposed to be ail the deaths that are attributable directly to aeronautic voyaging. Tue Bank or Encianp.-The [Valencian.-The] directors of the bank are chosen from among the proprietors of stock who are merchants of the city. A banker is never admitted to a seat in the direction it is difficult to account for this exclusion, but the fact is so. On several occasions we have disapproved of the conduct of the bank; yet we freely admit that, extensive as our researches have been into its transactions, we have never found a single instance in which a director of the bank has taken ad- [advantage] vantage of his situation by making it subservient to his private interests. This is a degree of virtue highly and loudly to be commended, in these degencrate [degenerate] days. No director ever holds more stock, during office, than the requisite qualification of 2,000; and the governor, when his year of office expires, immediately reduces the amount of his stock, which during his management has been doubled, to its original amount. Asa strong in- [instance] stance of the truth of this assertion, when in 1816 the very large bonus of 25 per cent increase of capital was given to the proprietors, the bank directors, according to the evidence of Mr. Horsley Palmer, before the com- [committee] ' mittee [matter] on the bank charter, remained, as they were before, small proprietors of stock. . It is ineumbent [incumbent] on the chief cashier or his deputy to reside within the walls of the bank. The apartments appro- [approve- appropriated] priated [printed] to such officer are re-furnished on the appoint- [appointment] 'ment [men] of every new cashier, and according to his own taste, at a cost not exceeding a certam [cert am] amount, but ' which is always very ample. All the avenues of the bank are closed by eleven o'clock at night, and the keys of the several gates are at that hour delivered into t e custody of the chief cashier or his deputy after ae no person is permitted, on any pretence whatever, either to leave the premises or gain admittance.-Lawsons [admittance.-Lawson] History of Banking. Dr. Diet, Dr. Quiet, and Dr. Merryman are the best physicians. In time of adversity not one in twenty. In time of friends there are plenty. It isa good horse that never stumbles, and a good wife that never grumbles. Prove thy friend ere thou hast need. A story never looses by carrying. An idle brain is the devil's shop. Deeds are fruit, words are but leaves. One eye witness, is worth ten ear witnesses. Better that the feet slip than the tongue. Pride goes before, and shame follows after, The higher an ape climbs the more he shows his tail. Treachery will come home to its author. Vice often wears virtue's clothes. Life and death are in the power of the tongue. They say, or I heard say, is half a lie. . No man is always a fool, but every man sometimes. To him that will, ways are not wanting.

In the course of the morning, one of the Monmouth coachmen was accosted by a tall, decent- [decent looking] looking man, bearing a carpet bag, who wanted to learn when the coach started for Monmouth. The knight of the road informed him with all the suavity due to a customer. Ah, said the stranger, it is a long time to wait I should like to take a glass of ale. Well, sir, replied the obliging coachman, my house is and you will be served there; I will go with you. Sup- [Suppose] pose you leave your carpet bag at the office No, no, said the stranger, hastily clutching the handle firmly, I would rather not part with that. To make a long story short, they lunched and dined together, doubtless enjoying each other's conversation, and then took a friendly pipe together. Whilst so engaged a brother whip joined the party, and after the usual greetings the discourse turned upon business. I say, said the new comer, I shouldn't [should't] wonder if one of us has Calcraft to take down to-day. Blow me, was the reply, if I take him. Ive drove that customer before, a year agone, [gone] and a shabby customer he is too. He never gives nothing to nobody, he don't and he shan't [san't] have the opportunity with me. And then the two friends joined in a full, true, and particular account of Master Calcraft and his doings, and his looks, habits, and manners were confidently if not accurately sketched. Ah, said one, he sold five ropes as that which Rush was hung with. And five suits of clothes as the one he was hung in, chimed in the other. The stranger meanwhile said nothing, probably having too much taste to be so personal; but a keen observer might have noticed that his visage grew darker, and he puffed his smoke rather more fiercely as the epithets of his com- [companions] panions [pains] grew more racy. At length, the coachman and his stranger friend started for Monmouth, and chatted pleasantly on the road, whereat some brothers of the whip passing up seemed to stare. The denouement occurred, we believe, at Ross. The coachman hat though he was determined not to carry such a man, vet that he had actually lunched, dined, and smoked with Caleraft [Calvert] himself, and to make matters worse had abused him to his face. Never mind, old boy, said Caleraft, [Calvert] tipping a shilling as he got down at Monmouth. The carpet bag contained the materials, for the exe- [execution] cution, [caution] as Calcraft delicately styles the halter and other small matters of his craft. He was paid 15 for hang- [hang] ing two Irishmen at Monmouth, old man, and commenced strangling him. The eunuch was feeble, and taken by surprise, could offer but little resistance. in vain, his assassin continuing to draw the fatal noose tighter and tighter still, and as she redoubled her efforts she exclaimed with the rage of a fury, Ah you wanted to know all-you shall know more than you bargained for You sought for light did you here's eternal darkness for you Now write to your master write old fool At the vociferations of the assassin, and the groans of the victim, one of the slaves returned into the apartment, and at the sight of the horrible scene, rushed out and began crying all over the house, The khanum [khan um] (mistress of the house) is murdering-the khanwm [Khan] is strangling the eunuch A scene of general confusion ensued. Some of the slaves rushed terror-struck in the sireet, [street] repeating one after the other, The shanum [sham] is murdering the khanum [khan um] is murdering Others hastened to the bathroom, and only reached it as the old eunuch, overpowered was stretched out senseless upon the marble floor. Betray- [Betraying] ing no alarm at the publicity of her deed, the khanum [khan um] loosened the noose, and slowly retired between a double row of her servants, whose imprecations followed her to the door of her apartment, The eunuch had been kind to the slaves, and they lamented his loss. One of them raised him from the ground and discovered that he still breathed. They rubbed him, and a physi- [physic- physician] cian [can] was sent for, but it was too late. The wretched man returned to life for a few moments, and found sufficient strength completely to denounce the guilty one, and to give a detailed account of his assassination, but he expired immediately after. All Constantinople was soon thrown into a state of agitation at the news of the crime, which spread with the rapidity of lightning. The cadi [acid] arrived, and in spite of the khanum's [khan um's] rank, the authorities de- [determined] termined [terminated] that she should be arrested and conveyed to prison. A courier was then immediately despatched to London, to apprise Mehemet [Theme] Pasha of the fatal occur- [occurrence] rence. [rents] The culprit has already been examined several times, and up to the present time the only defence she has set up is that she possessed a power of life and death over the eunuch, whom she considered as her slave. The affair remains at this stage for the present, and all further proceedings will be suspended until the arrival of a communication from London, or of the hus- [husband] band himself. As you may imagine, this mournful event has created a great sensation in the higher circles of Mussulman [Muslin] society. It is presumed, however, that the sultan will not be deterred by the rank of the cri- [ci- criminal] minal, [final] and that the punishment of the crime will be signa [signal] 2 The Globe reprints the above, and adds The parties who figure in this startling account are known to us; and indeed the Times, in which several leading articles have appeared on the subject of Dr. Millengen's [Milking's] conjugal wrongs, and the Pope's refusal to give him up his children, ought to have recognised in the French mis- [is- misnomer] nomer [nome] of Melinger, [Milliner] its own quondam correspondent at Constantinople. Dr. Julius Millingen [Milling en] attended Lord Byron in his last illness at Missolonghi, [Masonic] and is the author ofa [of] book published in London in 1814, called Memoirs of the Souliote [Solute] Brigade. When we knew him at Pera, [Per] in 1839, he had already got rid of his wife, whom he had left with her two children at Rome under the care of the Countess Millingen, [Milling en] his mother. The countess was a Roman Catholic, and dame honneur honour] to the Duchess of Lucca; [Lucas] she, of course, brought up her grandchildren in her own creed, and the murderess of the old eunuch, whom we often met at Rome at the Palace delle [Belle] Stem- [Stem mate] mate (the residence of the countess), also professed her- [herself] self a Roman Catholic. She took some opportunity of eloping from Rome, and lived two years at Paris in the Lola Montes [Months] style; but still possessed with a lingering for her dear Levant, she found her way back to that sunny clime, and the subsequent part of her history is pretty correctly given. We were quite prepared for the -tragic finale from a knowledge of her ungovernable temper. - -- - Madame Anna Thillon [Dillon] is to make her debut at tooms, [rooms] London, in November, in a new entertainment, Hara expressly for her by Messrs. Oxenford [Oxen ford] and Albert mith. [Smith] to the immense mass assembled to hear the great cantatrice. [countries] Not less than 6,000 persons were present. In compliance with the earnest desire of Mademoiselle Jenny Lind, Mr. Barnum has come to the determination of abandoning the sale of tickets by auction in future, at least while the concerts are given in Castle-garden, and to reduce the prices 25 per cent. on the average, while one class ofseats [seats] will be reduced to 2 dollars, and promenade tickets to 1 dollar. It was stated in the Herald, before Jenny Lind came to this country, that she determined to devote the entire 150,000 dollars, to which she is entitled by her first contract with Mr. Barnum, to the endowment of free schools in her native country. We learn, upon the best authority, that she adheres to this determination, and that every cent of that sum will be applied to the noble purposes of educa- [Edgar- education] tion. [ion] Some of her friends remonstrated with her against this extreme of liberality. Her reply to them was that she had made provision for her parents, had secured a sufficient income for herself (6,000 [6,W] dollars per annum), and that as she knew not how soon she might lose her voice, she ought to do her duty to her country when she had the power. On Saturday last, at 12 o'clock, she visited Mr. Brady's magnificent daguerreotype gallery, at his earnest solicita- [solicitor- solicitation] tion, [ion] in orderto [order to] have her likeness taken. As soon as it was known she was there a large crowd collected around the place, which continued to increase to such a degree that it became rather formidable to face it by the time the likeness was completed. A ruse was accordingly resorted to, and she was conducted out of the door in Fulton- [Longstreet] street, instead of Broadway; but the crowd was not to be outwitted so easily. The moment they perceived the movement they made a rush, and one of the hard- [divested] fisted actually thrust his hand into the carriage and held it swearing that he must see Jenny Lind. The carriage was completely surrounded, and the driver whipped the horses, when one or two persons were thrown down, but were not sevcrely [severely] injured. During Saturday there was a continual rush of human beings passing into Barnum's Museum for the purpose of purchasing tickets for Tuesday's concert. The choice seats sold nearly as well as by auction, and the others brought good prices. The back seats were sold for two dollars, and the promenade tickets, giving the richt [right] to hear her, standing up around the passages in the lower part of the house and in the balcony, for four dollars. Mademoiselle Lind remained in retirement all day on Sunday, not having gone out even to church. Yesterday, at eleven o'clock in the forenoon, the re- [rehearsal] hearsal [hears] of Mademoiselle Jenny Lind's third concert took place in the Castle Garden. The parquette [parquet] was half filled with spectators, at which the great songstress was evidently annoyed. She said she came to sing at a rehearsal, and not at a concert. When she learned the cause she laughed, and took it all in good part. It is unreasonable to expect an artist who is to sing next day in so large a room as that, and to eight thou- [thousand] sand persons, to put forth all her power as she would at a concert and if she does not do so, her singing will be set down as comparatively tame. Mademoiselle Lind at first almost refused to sing at all, but, with her usual good-nature and amiable disposition, she consented. She did not, however, in any one song, exert her power, except in twoor [two] three passages. She wore a black watered silk dress, a dark shawl, and was very plainly dressed. She sat most of the time, and wore her bonnet while she was singing. Since the foregoing was written, we learn that, by par- [particular] ticular [circular] request, Jenny Lind will sing the Echo Song to-night, in addition to the five announced in the pro- [programme] gramme. This will be a treat such as rarely falls to the lot of mortals in one night. We have beaten John Bull in steam-ships, and every- [everything] thing else in which we have undertaken to excel him. Tt remains to be seen whether we will not beat him in musical excitement. - ---- Frenca [French] ConsuLaR [Consul] APPOINTMENT IN PRESTON.-The French government have agreed, on the recommendation of M. Drouyn [Drown] de Lhuys, [Hus] the ch ambassador in London, to establish a agency in Preston, and have confer- [conferred] red the appointment of consul on Mr. H. C. Walton. The appointmment [appointment] was conferred through Mr. Grenfell, [Greenfield] M.P. se Chronicle, all just terminated in the town of Leeds. but to produce a minds of all who attended the services. The whole series passed off in a most impressive and effective manner. On Sunday afternoon last, the Rev. John Curwen [Current] addressed an ageregate [aggregate] congregation of not fewer than two thousand children, the spectacle being unusually interesting and affecting. Dr. Leifchild, [levelled] Dr. Vaughan, the Rev. Baldwin Brown, and the Rev. Mr. Scott, of Demerara, have well sustained the interest of the occasion. In short, the anniversary has proved in every respect one eminently adapted not only to aid materially the cause of missions, powerful spiritual influence upon the GREAT NoRTHERN [Northern] Rattway.-lIt [Railway.-it] is stated that some differences have arisen between the engine-drivers and fire- [firemen] men on this line and the locomotive superintendent, but as yet no representations have been made to the authorities on the subject. The remuneration of the engine-drivers and firemen on the Great Northern appear to be a little lower than that on other lines, being at the rate of 7s. a day to the old drivers and 6s. 8d. to the new, and to the firemen 3s. 6d. and 3s. a day; while on other lines the former receive 7s, and 7s. 6d. a day, and the latter 4s. It is stated on the one hand that they are worked harder than on other lines, and on the other that if they are worked harder, owing to the line having been newly opened, they are paid for extra work.-Tines.
