A SONG. ox it's worth a life in England To see a Sabbath there, When all is still, and all is calm, And every thing is fair. When no hand is raised to labour, And no troubles fill the breast When busy thoughts that haunt the mind Of man, are laid to rest When the rich man and the peasant Forget each anxious care, And spend the hallow'd Sabbath, In worsbip, [worship] rest, and prayer. Even Nature seems to sleep Ina peaceful holy calm ; Every sound is hushed and still, And the very air is calm. The peal of noisy laughter then Changes for the village bell, Which with mellow silvery tones Re-echoes through the dell. France may boast its bright blue sky, Unclouded all the day, Where all is merry, clear, and pure, As sunny flowers in May. But it's worth a life in England To see a Sabbath there, When all is silent, all is calm, And every thing is fair. LEGE. [LEE] coleiate [Collegiate] School, October 9th, 1850. REVIEW. ALS [AS] .

The thing is altogether a matter of habit, and he who does not set his habits right in this par- [particular] ticular, [circular] will lament it all his days. But the young man, because his real wants are few, imagines they always will be. Because he has to provide for himself alone, he has no idea that others are to be dependent upon him. He has health, youth, energy, and strength, and he forgets that they will not always last- [lasting] Burnap. [Burns] PreastRE [Pressure] BEFOREHAND.-The expectation of being pleased, which prevails so much in young persons, is one great source of their enjoyments. All are felt be- [beforehand] forehand, and their hopes are not easily given up; the conviction that they shall be pleased, makes a strong impression on the imagination, which often lasts long enough to make them really so, when otherwise they would have found little reason for it. This illusion cnot, [not] nor is it desirable that it should, be preserved, but the disposition to he pleased may yet remain, and there is hardly anything of so much importance to the happiness of life.

The king was once obliged in the chase to cross Wyke Farm; but on riding up to a gate, he found it locked, and hailed a man at work close by; the man seemed lazy, or unwilling to do as he was bid. Come, come, man, said the king, open the gate. Nay, ye mun gang aboot, [about, was the answer. 'Gang aboot [about] replied the king, open the gate, man; I'm the king Why, maybe, said the chap, but ye mun gang aboot, [about] if ye ert [et] king. And sure enough the king was forced to gang aboot; [about; which in plain Eng- [English] lish [Lush] means, that he was obliged to go round nearly the whole inclosure [enclosure] of Osterley Park. Whether Nimrod lost his temper or not is unrecorded; but that he was not in at the death may be taken for granted, without any record of the fact. Robinson came home in the afternoon, and was told of his royal master's disappoint- [disappointment] ment; [men] and being assured of the fact by the offender himself, he instantly ordered his horses to his carriage and druve [drive] post-haste to Kew. He was admitted, as usual, without ceremony, and the king, laughing, greeted him thus Ah, Robinson, I see you are in distress ; be of good cheer I wish I had such fine fellows in my pay as Auld gang aboot. [about] Tell him from me that I shall always be glad to see him. Robinson was at ease ; and Auld gang aboot [about] very soon and very often found a more direct path than around the palings of Osterley Park to Kew Palace, where he always met with that kindness which his sturdy honesty and practical good sense were sure to meet with, under the roof of one who himself had so large a share of both. The king never saw friend Jack afterwards, without inquiring affectionately after Auld gang aboot.

The same income that enables a clergyman, a lawyer, a medical practitioner, a government functionary, or any other member of the middle classes earning his liveli- [live- livelihood] hood by professional labour, to support himself and his family in comfort and respectability, will seldom keep a literary man out of debt and difficulty-seldom provide him with a comfortable, well-ordered home, creditable to himself and his profession. It is ten to one that he lives untidily that everything about him is in confu- [confer- confusion] sion that the amenities of domestic life are absent from his establishment that he is altogether in a state of elaborate and costly disorder, such as we are bound to say is the characteristic of no other kind of professional life. He seldom has a settled home-a fixed position. He appears to be constantly on the move. He seldom lives for any length of time in the same place, and is rarely at home when you call upon him. It would be instructive to obtain a return of the number of profes [profess] sional [national] writers who retain pews in church, and are to be found there with their families on Sundays. There is something altogether fitful, irregular, spasmodic in their way of life. And so it is with their expenditure. They do not live like other men, and they do not spend like other men. At one time, you would think, from their lavish style of living, that they were worth three thousand a year; and at another, from the privations that they undergo, and the difficulty they find in meet- [meeting] ing small claims upon them, that they were not worth fifty. There is generally, indeed, large expenditure abroad, and painful stinting at home. The res angusta [August] domi [dom is almost always there; but away from his home, your literary man is often a prince anda [and] millionaire. Or, if he be a man of domestic habits, if he spends little on tavern suppers, little on wine, little on cab-hire, the probability is that he is still impulsive and improvident, still little capable of self-denial; that he will buy a costly picture when his house-rent is unpaid; that he will give his wife a guitar when she wants a gown; and buy his children a rocking-horse when they are.without stockings, His house and family are altogether in an inelegant state of elegant disorder; and with really a comfortable income, if properly managed, he is eternally in debt.- [debt] North British Review. Our ANGEL Smpe. -Good [Some. -Good] and evil, like plants of earthly growth, increase by culture; but in order that they may be cultivated they must be discerned and re- [recognised] cognised. [recognised] The great system under which evil has grown up, is one which takes note mainly, if not entirely, of the defects and frailties of humanity, which is intended to repress vices rather than to cultivate virtues, and hence has grown up the practice of imprisoning instead of teaching-of punishment instead of preventing-of relying upon force rather than upon affection-of ap- [appealing] pealing to fear, the lowest and most degrading of man's attributes, instead of to love, the highest and most ennobling of his qualities-in order to prevent vice and crime. Few people seem to have thought that it is better to create truth than to punish error. There has been a want of perception of the fact, that good and evil may be compared to two spheres, spreading over, and occupying the whole surface of, the human mind ; that as one is expanded the other is necessarily de- [decreased] creased, and that the true way to diminish the sphere of evil is by good, gentle agencies-by high and holy teaching-by forbearance, patience, and charity, to ex- [extend] tend the sphere of good. From this not being generally understood, the attempt has been hitherto to govern men through their vices, instead of their virtues- [virtues through] through their passions instead of their affections; the angel side of humanity has been forgotten, while its demon-like aspect has been brought into glaring pro- [prominence] minence, [eminence] and vice has grown and spread like a foul ulcer, mocking in its power the ill-directed and futile attempts to check its ravages. ' through all the phases in life, in the world, and in the home, love is the true civiliser, the creator of unnumbered benefits. It is affection that links families together, with a stronger chain than laws can find to bind empires; and when that fails, no law can supply its place-no authority can gather together its broken parts, can weld them again into one. It is love that calls out all the good of which man, in the varied rela- [real- relations] tions [tins] of life, is capable. Where that cannot enter, all good is barred out for ever but, perhaps, there never yet lived a being upon earth-perhaps there never was a murdererso [murderers] brutal, ora robber so hardened- [hardened that] that some touch of human sympathy did not linger in him, and gild even his crimes with a holy ray of human sympathy, the best evidence that the lowest and most debased has still an angel side. -Eliza Cook's Journal. Warrsure [Wares] CasttE.-TuHe [Castle.-The] AsyLum [Asylum] or LurHEr.-A [Luther.-A] small wooden staircase leads to the room where he resided when first conveyed hither, forcibly and in secret, by the devices of his friend, the Elector, from the dangers, hidden and open which at that time threatened his life. He called it his Patmos, and here he wrote several works, and completed a great portion of his translations of the Bible. The room he occupied remains in all principal features entirely unchanged. Whether a man be a Romanist or Protestant-whether he rejoice in the Reformation, or hate its memory, its historical importance no onecan [Cannon] deny. There is, there- [therefore] fore, a deep feeling of interest awakened in visiting the chamber once occupied by this great man; there is something peculiarly gratifying in handling the furniture once used by him-in sitting down upon his three- [thronged] legged stool-in looking at his inkstand-and reclining upon the old rough oaken table where he once wrote the words of fire which provoked the greatest religious revolution the world has ever known-and all this at the hand, humanly speaking, of a single monk who, in those dark and dangerous times, dared to oppose and defy the collective powers of the Emperor and the whole Romish [Rooms] clergy. Luther's chamber is of very small, nay, insignificant dimensions. Worm-eaten boards, miserably put together, cover the walls. Two deeply-recessed windows, small, and filled with lead casements, scarcely admit the necessary light, and the tout ensemble is so little inviting that, in these luxurious days, few English- [Englishmen] men would think of offering it as a sleeping apartment for a man servant. The bookcase is formed of simple boarding, and looks like a shifting closet that has been thrown aside in a lumber-room of some old house. Some Bibles, of various dates, and beneath these, frag- [fragments] ments [rents] of the first edition of the Lutheran translation, are here preserved, as also a piece of the beech tree under which Luther was arrested by the rough though friendly emissaries of the Elector, who brought him hither-and on the wall, framed and glazed, hangs a quarto leaf in his own firm, angular, and vigorous hand- [handwriting] writing. The tree above-mentioned, which stood in the neighbouring forest, was long known as Luther's beech, till it was at length struck by lightning, and destroyed during a violent thunder-storm.- [storm] Bentley's Miscellany. Dancer oF SrRayinc [Saying] ry aN AMERICAN ForEsT.- [Forest.- Forest] A lumberman will go but a few paces from his camp, turn round among the trees, and no more be able to reach it again, without learning its direction by whoop- [whooping] ing, or having some mark to guide him, than a mariner can steer north or south in a fog, without a compass to point out his course. A settler venturing beyond a blazed line in search of some particular wood, will get bewildered, and miss his way, and wander day after day, distracted, famishing, and at random. Should he ever recover the track, and present himself to his despairing family, like one risen from the grave, he can tell you what it is to be lost to wander like a drunken man in an endless circle, to come with wild joy upon tracks which turn out, alas to be your own 1 to lie down ight [it] brui [Bruin] and to rise up again stiff, hungry, an oe to punme [pun me] the same blind round through the eternal trees, tortured with the thought of a lingering, miserable death and hunted, moreover, by some ideal Farm BaltLirr.-George [Baltimore.-George] hantom, [phantom] conjured up by want and perturbation of pind [pond He sline [line] can tell you what this is. One friend of ours, after fas [as] for three days in the woods, ima- [ma] gined [fined] that he was followed by a blue dog, and told his companion to drive it away. Another, who wandered foodless and shoeless for five days in the snow, with his hands and feet frozen, saw distinctly an Indian beckon- [beckoning] ing to him from among the trees; and sometimes fol- [following] lowing this spectral guide, and sometimes floundering unconsciously on, he reached the bank of a river at last, hung his handkerchief upon a tree, and lay down to die -when relief came. Children have often wandered beyond the clearings, as poor Annie did; and, while engaged in gathering flowers and berries, suddenly dis- [discovered] covered that the terrible wilderness had seized upon them, and that they could not go back. Only a few years since, two such unfortunates were discovered lying dead, under a sheet of snow, with their arms encircling one another. The boy had taken off his coat, and wrapped it round his little sister but the cold was very severe, so they perished.- [perished] Frazer's Magazine.

A Captive LaDy [Lady] THE CAMANCHEE [CHEESEMAN] INDIANS.- [INDIANS] The Van Buren (Arkansas) Intelligencer says, a trader among the Camanchee [Cheeseman] Indians has discovered, in a camp of that nation, a white woman, fair and comely in appearance, who is intermarried among them, and says she is a sister of Lieutenant Love or Lovett, who com- [commanded] manded [Madden] a train which left Independence about three years ago, for Santa Fé, and that she was in company with the party when it was attacked by the Camanchees, [Cheeseman] and that her brother was badly wounded, a large num- [sum- number] ber [be] of the men were killed, and she, with a number of men, were carried off prisoners by the Indians. She 81ys [s] she is well treated by her husband, but the women are cruel to her; that she is anxious to return to her friends, and that four or five good riding horses will procure her ransom.-Boston Post. CoNSOLATION [Consolation] ON THE Loss oF CHILDREN.-Words- [Wordsworth] worth refers, in more than one of his poems, with a melancholy feeling of regret, to the loss of youthful thoughts and hopes. In the last six weeks he has lost two children-one of them a fine boy of seven years old. I believe he feels, as I have felt before him, that there is healing in the bitter cup -that God takes from us those we love as hostages for our faith (if I may so express myself)-and that to those who look to a re- [reunion] union in a better world, where there shall be no sepa- [sea- separation] ration, and no mutability except that which results from perpetual progressiveness, the evening becomes more delightful than the morning, and the sunset offers brighter and lovelier visions than those which we build up in the morning clouds, and which disappear before the strength of the day. The older I grow-and I am older in feeling than in years-the more I am sensible of this there is a precious alchemy in this faith, which transmutes grief into joy, or rather, it is the true and heavenly euphrasy [phrase] which clears away the film from our mortal sight, and makes affliction appear what, in reality, it is to the wise and good-a dispensation of mercy.- [mercy] Southey's Life. How To Loap [Soap] an IstE [Site] oF Wicut [Cut] Coacu.-You [Coach.-You] start from the Marine Hotel, Ventnor, with the coach appa- [papa- apparently] rently [recently] full of passengers however, two or three strag- [stag- stragglers] glers [Giles] are taken up before you get to the end of the High-street, where two blooming lasses, all smiles and furbelows, are waiting with bundles and trunks, to be conveyed to Ryde. After a great deal of pushing and squeezing, all are properly stowed, and off you go; but scarcely have you congratulated yourself before another lady, with a few boxes, is seen standing opposite a cot- [cottage] tage [age] in the sweet little village of Bonchurch. Our coachman is a gallant fellow, and of course pulls up- [up looks] looks well about him, and manages to make room where seemingly all before was crowded. Now, you are fairly off, and every one who has eyes is admiring the beauties of the scenery that this part of the island affords, and all are in rapture until after the arrival at Shanklin, where coachey's [coaches's] cramming powers are again brought into requisition. At Hale's Hotel two young men are taken up and mounted on the luggage. A little beyond is Dash's, where there are two ladies and a little boy, the latter sitting on a very large trunk, waiting the ar- [arrival] rival of the coach. Really, ladies, says the coach- [coachman] man, I have no room how many want to go Us two, and the little boy with the great trunk, responds one of the ladies. I think I can manage to make room for one, and only one, says the coachman. But there is no knowing what an Isle of Wight coachman will not attempt and what he will not accomplish, for he manages to put away somewhere the two ladies, the little boy, and the big trunk. You start off once more -a crowd of passengers and a mountain of luggage. On, on you rattle until you get to Brading, where another lady, with some more luggage, is waiting to be conveyed to Ryde. Noroom, No room] ma'am. me, what shall I do-why, my husband and brother have arrived from London, and are waiting for me at the Pier Hotel. Oh, dear---oh, dear. This appeal is made in so pathetic a tone that it moves the coachman's heart, and he immediately gets down and scans the coach all round but his ingenuity in the art of stowage is no longer available-there is not an atom of room; so he again mounts the box. Well, says he, it seems a pity to disappoint that lady, although she does weigh fifteen or sixteen stone. Don't you think, speaking tothe [tithe] three passengers with him on the box seat, don't you think we could manage to place her on the footboard here 'This is no sooner proposed than done, and the fat lady is accommodated. And so the coach is loaded. -Hampshire Advertiser. THE Frrst [First] TRANSATLANTIC STEAMER.-The first voyage ever made across the Atlantic by a steam-vessel was in 1826, by the American steamer Savannah. We find in the New London (Conn.) Chronicle the following account of this trip The commander of the Savannah, on her passage to and from Liverpool, was Captain Moses Rogers, of this city, and his brother-in-law, Captain Stevens Rogers, now an officer in our m-house, was her 'sailing master.' This gentleman has com- [communicated] municated [communicated] to us certain interesting facts connected with the first steam trip across the Atlantic. The Savannah was twenty-two days in making the passage from Savannah, where she was owned, to Liverpool, 14 of which she went without canvas, depending entirely on her steam power for propulsion, and never using sails and steam at the same time. Her engine was a low- [low pressure] pressure one, of only eighty or ninety-horse power, with which she could generally make eight knots to the hour.' When the ship arrived off Cape Clear, she was immediately telegraphed to Liverpool as a ship on fire, and the British admiral, then lying at Cork, des- [despatched] patched a King's cutter to her relief, but the officers and crew were struck with astonishment in being unable to overhaul a vessel under bare poles. However, after several shots had been fired from the cutter, the engine was stopped, and they were permitted to come on board, and were greatly gratified as well as astonished at the marvellous craft. As she approached Liverpool, great numbers met her in boats and during this time she wore all her colours; when a boat from a British sloop of war came alongside and hailed the sailing master, then on deck, demanding, Where is your master I have no master, was the reply. Where is your captain, sir He is below, sir. The captain then came on deck. Why do you wear that pennant, sir says the officer. I wear it, says Capt. Rogers, because my country permits me to do so. My commander, answered the officer, thinks that it was done to insult him; and if you do not take it down he will send a force that will do it. Capt. Rogers made no reply to his threat, but gave orders to the engineer to get ready the hot water engine. Now there was no such thing on board, but n'importe, [n'Importer] the order answered the object. John Bull evacuated, and no more was heard of him. The reception in Liverpool was a wonderful one; the whole city and country crowded to see the strange craft; and during her stay she was visited by noblemen from London, by naval officers, and other distingues [destinies] in great numbers. The Savannah then left for Copenhagen and Stockholm, where she wasvisited [was visited] by the royal family and thousands of persons of the highest rank and at the latter place took on board Lord Lynedock, [London] then on his travels through the north of Europe, and proceeded to St. Petersburgh, [Petersburg] where she was received with the greatest eclat by all classes, and a rich service of plate presented to her officers. Captain Rogers has now in his possession, and which he showed us yesterday morning, a beautiful gold snuff-box richly chased and ornamented, presented to him by Lord Lynedoch, [London] as a memento of his good will. The ship reached Savannah after a pleasant passage of twenty-five days, and afterwards went to Washington city, where she laid up. Captain Rogers tells us that the rule was to carry sail while the ship would make five knots an hour; and when that speed could not be reached, to take in sail and use the engine, there being no difficulty of getting full eight knots out of her.- [her] New York Tribune. How THE Poor GatHER [Father] KnowLepcr.-I [Knowledge.-I] slept in a little lean-to garret at the back of the house, some ten feet long by six wide. I could just stand upright against the inner wall, while the roof on the other side ran down to the floor. There was no fireplace in it, or any means of ventilation. No wonder I coughed all night accordingly, and woke about two every morning with choking throat and aching head. My mother often said that the room was too small fora Christian to sleep in, but where could she get a better Such was my only study. I could not use it as such, however, at night without discovery; for my mother carefully looked in every evening, to see that my candle was out. But when my kind cough woke me, I rose, and creeping like a mouse about the room-for my mother and sister slept in the next chamber, and every sound was audible through the narrow petition-I drew my darling books out from under a board of the floor, one end of which I had gradually loosened at odd minutes, and with them arushlight, [starlight] earned by running on messages, or by taking bits of work home, and finishing them for my fellows. No wonder that with this scanty rest, and this compli- [comply- complicated] cated [acted] exertion of hands, eyes, and brain, followed by the long, dreary day's work of the shop, my health began to fail; my eyes grew and weaker my cough became more acute; my appetite failed me daily. My mother noticed the change, and questioned me about it affectionately enough. But I durst not, alas tell the truth. It was not one offence, but the arrears of months of disobedience which I should have had to confess; and so arose infinite false excuses, and petty prevarications, which embittered and clogged still more my already overtasked [over tasked] spirit.

The lower classes uneducated Perhaps you would be so too if learning cost you the privation which it costs some of them.-Alion [them.-Lion] Locke. THINK.-Thought engenders thought. Place one idea upon paper-another will follow it, and still another, until you have written a page. You cannot fathom your mind. There is a well of thought there which has no bottom. The more you draw from it, the more clear and fruitful it will be. If you neglect to think yourself, and use other people's thoughts-giving them utterance only-you will never know what you are capable of. At first, your ideas may come out in lumps-homely and shapeless-but no matter, time and perseverance will arrange and polish them. Learn to think, and you will learn to write-the more you think, the better will you express your ideas. LocomorivE [Locomotive] Stream Enere-'I [Serene-'I] love, says Elihu [Eli] Burritt, [Barrett] to see one of these huge creatures, with sinews of brass and muscles of iron, strut forth-from his smoky stable, and, saluting the long train of cars with a dozen sonorous puffs from his iron nostrils, fall back very gently into his harness. There he stands champing and foaming upon the iron track, his groat heart a furnace of glowing coals his lymphatic blood is boiling in his veins the strength of a thousand horses is nerving his sinews he pants to be gone. He would drag St. Peter's across the deserts of Sahara if he could be fairly hitched to it; but there is a little sober-eyed, tobacco-chewing man in the saddle, who holds him in with one finger, and can take away his breath in a moment, should he grow restive or vicious. I am always deeply interested S in this man, for, begrimmed [begrimed] as he may be with machi- [machine- machinery] nery, [very] he is the physical mind of that huge steam-horse. SACREDNESS OF TeaRs-There [Years-There] is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love. Oh speak not harshly of the stricken one-weeping in silence Break not the deep solemnity by rude laughter or intrusive footsteps. Scoff not, if the stern heart of manhood is sometimes melted by sympathy they are what help to elevate him above the brute. I love to see tears of affec- [affect- affection] tion. [ion] They are painful tokens, but still most holy. There is pleasure in tears-an awful pleasure. If there were none on earth to shed a tear for me, I should be loth to live and if no one might weep over my grave, I could never die in peace.-Dr. Johnson. THE Dew-prop.-A delicate child, pale, and prematurely wise, was complaining on a hot morn- [morning] ing, that the poor dew-drops had been too hastily snatched away, and not allowed to glitter on the flowers like other happier dew-drops, that live the whole night through, and sparkle through the moonlight, and through the morning onwards [onward] to noon-day. The sun, said the child, has chased them away with his heat, or has swallowed them up in his wrath. Soon after came rain and a rainbow, whereupon his father pointed upwards. See, said he, there stand the dew-drops gloriously reset-a glittering jewellery-in the heavens; and the clownish foot tramples on them no more. By this, my child, thou art taught that what withers upon earth blooms again in heaven. Thus the father spoke, and knew not that he spoke prefiguring words; for soon after, the delicate child, with the morning brightness of his early wisdom, was exhaled, like a dew-drop, into heaven.-Jean Paul. GrRavE.-During [Grave.-During] a recent tour of a few days to the Lakes, the most interesting object I saw was the grave of the poet Wordsworth, at Grasmere. There was no need of a guide, for through the grassy church-yard were two beaten tracks; one on the north, the other on the south side of the church, trodden by the feet of numerous visitors to the poet's grave. It is close to the eastern wall-a simple grave, covered with the grassy sod, a small dork-coloured flag placed at its foot, with a taller cne [ce] at the head, on which is engraved -' William Wordsworth. On his right lie the remains of two young children, a son and daughter, whom he lost many years ago. A small erect slab bears the touching words of the Savionr- [Saviour- Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of heaven. A more elaborately-carved stone on his left points out the resting place of his accom- [com- accomplished] plished [polished] and kind-hearted daughter Dora (Mrs. Quil- [Quin- Quinlan] linan.) [linen] There is something extremely affecting in this simple memorial of the departed poet. His friends may raise a splendid mausoleum to his memory; but his most affecting momento [moment] will be this unpretending sod- [sod covered] covered grave, with its dark-coloured slab inscribed William Wordsworth. A little grave, like those of the common occupants of a churchyard, farmers or shepherds-how suitable for the poet who looked upon man in his simple native dignity, not as raised above his fellows by the adventitious claims of wealth or rank. A little, little grave, an obscure grave, with its glassy mound for the daisy and small celandine to bud forth in early spring, and gratefully embellish their poet's last resting place. The Rotha, [Roth] too, flowing past the church- [churchyard] yard wall over its pebbly bed, will murmur a sweet music ever grateful to the poet's ear, and lull his repose till the morning of the Resurrection P.-Near Bow- [Bowness] ness, 4th Sept.-Examiner. How THE NEPAULESE [NAPLES] TREAT THE CRIME OF ADULTERY. One of their laws regarding adultery is not only a very summary one, but often very gratifying to the feelings of an injured husband. Should such a crime be perpe- [per- perpetrated] trated, [treated] as it often is during the absence of the husband, and be detected, he, on his return, is duly informed of the stain on his honour, and is an outcast until the stain be removed. He is neither permitted to eat with, smoke with, nor even visit his friends and relations until he has avenged the disgrace. He accordingly sets to work immediately; but as the seducer on the return of the husband, generally contrives to make himself scarce, the injured man has to wait patiently his return, or the opportunity of meeting him. In this way some- [sometimes] times years are spent. At length perhaps the wished for moment arrives. The wronged husband waylays his dishonourer, steals upon him as he would a deer, quietly draws his kookery, [cookery] rushes behind him, and with one blow severs his head from his body. Justice is now done; his honour is avenged; and he is admitted tu caste. One little trifle alone remains; he has to cut his wife's nose off, which is soon done, to prevent any one falling in love with her again.- [again] United Service Magazine CREAM OF PUNCH. HAYNAU S [HANNAH S] TASTE OF BARCLAY AND PERKINS'S ENTIRE. By this time the reader is aware of the brewing extra- [extraordinary] ordinary which took place the other day at Barclay and Perkinss-the [Perkins-the] storm brewed at the establishment by General Haynau. [Hannah] Haynau, [Hannah] in the public eye, stands branded with deeds of the basest atrocity-the merciless hanging of brave men, and the dastardly flogging of noble women. He is a slandered man, of course. No demon, even, but the meanest as well as most malignant in devildom, [defiled] would have perpetrated cruelties sc execrable and infamous. This gallant officer and amiable gentleman goes about, the object of universal hatred, through (doubtless) a mere deception, which has been unaccountably prac- [pray- practised] tised [tied] on the newspapers, and disseminated by their means. . With his detestable character pinned to his back-albeit bold as brass in conscious innocence-did Baron Haynau, [Hannah] according to the Times and other journals-go on Wed- [Wednesday] nesday [Wednesday] last week to visit Barclay and Perkins's brewery. Armed with the breastplate of an untainted heart, he wrote his name-little thinking what a name it was-in the visitors' book. The pen might as well have been a lighted match, and the page a train leading to a powder barrel. What was the consequence His presence, says the Times-- [Times] Became known all over the brewery in less than two minutes, and before the general and his companions had crossed the yard, nearly all the labourers and draymen [drawn] were out with brooms and dirt, shouting out, Down with the Austrian butcher, and other epithets of rather an alarming nature to the general. He was soon covered with dirt, and perceiving some of the men about to attack him, ran into the street to Bankside, followed by a large mob, consisting of the brewer's men, coal-heavers, and others, armed with all sorts of weapons, with which they belaboured the general. The Baron fondly imagined himself a simple lion ; and had no idea that he would be received as a tiger- [tiger the] the beast with which he is confounded by a vulgar error. But had he really been the unmanly miscreant he was mistaken for, how poetically beautiful would have been the termination of his adventure - He ran in a frantic manner Frantically as a women-whipper might be expected to run - He ran ina frantic manner along Bankside, until he came to the George public-house, when, the doors open he rushed in and proceeded. up-stairs into. one of the bed- [bedrooms] rooms, to the utter astonishment of Mrs. Benfield, [benefited] the landlady, who soon discovered his name; and the reason of his entermg [enter mg] her house. The furious mob rushed in after him, ing to do for the Austrian butcher, but fortunately for fim [firm] the house is very old-fashioned, and contains a vast number of doors, which were all forced open except that of the room in which the general was con- [concealed] cealed.

The Morning Post states that He was conveyed over the water in a most deplorable state, the clothes having been actually torn off his back, several very severe blows having been inflicted on Every rightly feeling mind must condole with General Haynau [Hannah] on the treatment which he has experienced from being so very unmeritably [uncharitably] regarded as a diabolical savage and a disgrace to human nature. Messrs. Barclay and Perkins, it is stated, have been investigating the matter, with a view to discover the ringleaders in the attack on the gallant general, who was misunderstood to have hanged heroes and flogged ladies. Even had there been no misunderstanding in the case, the conduct of the draymen [drawn] would certainly have been illegal. Nor would it have been exactly jus- [us- justifiable] tifiable [table] morally for, as we all know, it is a duty not to let our blood boil over under any provocation, and we ought to preserve a philosophical calmness even in the presence of Herod, fresh from the slaughter of the Innocents or of Nero, red-handed from his mother's murder. Here's to your speedy amendment, Baron Haynau [Hannah] and lest new acquaintance should be forgot, perhaps you will pledge us in Barclay, Perkins, and Co.'s Entire. TO THE LAUGHERS., The Peace Congress is a capital joke. It's so obvious a subject for fun that we thought it worth while to waste a laugh on it. All manner of pens have been poking the public in the ribs about it-paper pellets of all colours and weights have been slung at it-arrows from all quivers have beon [been] emptied on its vulnerable sides.

Peace, with a bloated aristocracy still rampant snarls the Red Republican. And they all drown in a chorus of contemptuous laughter the pleading voices of the poor Peace Congressists [Congress] in the Church of St. Paul. But there are some voices which refuse to join in this chorus, some thoughtful faces that look on with interest and sympathy at this strange protest in the nineteenth century against the appeal to brute force, which is the only way of settling its quarrels that the world has tried for eighteen centuries since Peace was preached on Earth, and good will to men And there are some, too, of the wise and the great, who can discern in this gathering of friends of peate, [Peate] this little Babel of various tongues, this tiny Congress of many races, a thing in no way to be ridiculed, any more than the acorn is to be ridiculed, when science declares that its heart contains the oak. Alexander Von Humboldt is, of all persons now living in Europe, the most experienced in men and courts; the most deeply learned the most comprehensively and thoroughly informed. He has traversed the domain of knowledge as widely as he has travelled the countries of the globe. Alexander Von Humboldt does not laugh at this Peace Congress. There is no sneer in well-weighed words like these -- The general peace which ourcontinent [our continent] has now so long enjoyed, and the praisworthy [praiseworthy] efforts of many governments to avert the oft-threatened dangers of a general European war, prove that the ideas which so prominently occupy your mindsare [minds] in accordance with the sentiments called forth and diffused by the increased culture of humanity. It is a useful enterprise to inspire such sentiments in the commonwealth by public conferences, and at the same time to point out the way through which wise and sincere governments may, by fostering the progressive and legitimate development and perfectability [respectability] of free institutions, weaken the long ac- [accumulated] cumulated elements of animosity. Perhaps the grey-haired philosopher is laughing in his sleeve, or drivelling, when he tells the Peace Con- [Congress] gress [grass] that, The whole history of the past shows that, under the protection of a superior power, a long-nourished yéarning [warning] after a noble aim in the life of nations, will at length find its consummation.

Contractine [Contracting] Bap Hasrts.-Unless [Asserts.-Unless] you wish to con- [contract] tract bad habits, we should advise you not to purchase your clothes at a cheap tailor's, for, as the cloth is inva- [vain- invariably] riably [rial] bad, and the way of making it up generally too small, the chances are-that with every coat, waistcoat, or pair of trousers you purchase, you will be contracting a deplorable bad habit.

This is not the first time that a leaden conductor has, by hissoftness, [his softness] created a distance between the two countries, and plunged them head over heels in difficulties. The mischief, however, was soon patched up, and communi- [common- communications] cations from Dover to Calais have been since forwarded by the same line of communication as before. We only wish that all ruptures between England and France were as easily mended - - In consequence of the recent lamentable explosions of the Red Rover steamer, at Bristol, by which many lives were lost, a meeting of the town council of that borough was held on Monday last, at which a series of resolutions were adopted, fixing the size of the boats, the numbers of their passengers, and limiting the speed to six miles an hour; also providing that they only be worked by screw propellors; [propeller] that they shall be duly inspected and certified as to the sufficiency and build and machinery.
