THE UNPARALLELED ADVENTURE
By Into accounts from Rotterdam,
that elty seems to bo In it high state of
phlloiophlcal excitement. Indeed, pho
nomena havo there occurred of a nnturo
so completely unexpected so entirely
novel so utterly at vnrlanco with pro
conceived opinions -its to Ienvo no doubt
on my mind that long eru this all
Europo Is lu an uproar, all physics In n
ferment, all reason and astronomy to
gether by tho ears.

somblt d in the ereat touaro of tho Ex-
change in tho well-conducted city of
Rotterdam. Tlio day was warm un-
usually so for the sfitsou -there was
hardly a breath of nlr stirring; and the
multltudo were in no bad humor at be
ing now and then besprinkled with
friendly showers of momentary dura
tion, that fell from largo whlto masses
of cloud profusely distributed about
tho blue vault of the firmament. Nover-
tholes, about nooit,a slight but remark
able agitation became apparent In tho
assembly; tho clattering often thousand
tongues succeeded; and, In nu instant tu-
tcrwalds, ten thousand faces wero up
turned towards tho heavens, ten thous-
and pipes descended simultaneously
from the corners of ten thousand mouths,

open area of blue space, a queer, heter

stance, so oddly shaped, so whimsically
put together, as not to bo In any mini'

bulllclently admired, by tho host of
Hturdy burghers who stood open-mouth'
oil below. What could it be? In tho
name of all thu devils lu Rotterdam,
what could it possibly portend ? No
ono knew, no ouu could Imagine; no
ono not even tlio burgomaster MyiP
beer Stiperbus Von Undenluk had
the slightest clew by which to unravel
thu mystery; so, us nothing more reus-
onablo could bo dono, every ono to ii

This ho poised suspiciously In his hand ;
then eyed It with an alrof extrcmosur-

drawing therefrom a huge letter scaled
with retl sealing-wax nud tied careful

which ho threw out, one after another,
without taking the trouble to empty

most unfortunately, upon tho back of

It is said, on tho contrary, that dur

Your Excellencies may perhaps bo
abloto remember an liumblonrtizan,by
niuno Hans Pfaalt, and by occupation a
mender of bellows, who, with threo
others, disappeared from Rotterdam,
about live years ago, in a manner which
must have been considered uiiaccouiit
able. If, however, It so please your Ex.
collencles, I, tho writer of this commu
nication, iiiii tho Identical Hans Pfaall
himself. It Is well known to most of
my fellow-citizens, that for tho period
of forty years T continued to occupy tho
ilttlo squaro brick building, nt tho head
of tho alley called Sauerkraut, In which
I resided at tlio time of my disappear
ance. My ancestors havo also resided
therein tlmo out of mind they, ns well
as myself, Bteadily following tho res
pectable and Indeed lucrative- profes
sion of mending of bellows: for,to speak
the truth, until of lute years, that the
heads of nil tho people havo been set
agog with politics, no better business
than my own could an honest citizen of
Rotterdam cither deslro or deserve.
Credit was good, employment wns nov
er wanting, nnd there was no lack of
cither money or good will. But us I
was saying, wo soon began to feel the
effects of liberty, nnd loiigspc(cbes,nnd
radicalism, and all that sort of thing.
People who weio formerly t!;e very best
customers in the world, hail now not u
moment of time to think of us at all.
They had as much as they could do to
read about tho revolutions, and keep
up with the march of Intellect nnd the
spirit of the age. If a Uro wanted fun

and iron acquired durability in pro
poition for, in a very short tlme,thcre
was not a pair of bellows iu all Rotter
dam that ever stood iu need of a stitch
or required the assistance of ahammar.
This was a state of things not to bo en
dured. I soon grew as poor as a rat.
and, having a wife and children to pro
vide for, my burdens at length becamo
intolerable, and I spent hour after hour
in reflecting upon tho most convenient
method of putting an end to my life.
jjuiis, in tno meantime, left me
Ilttlo leisure for contemplation. Sty
houso was literally besieged from morn
ing till night. Thero wero threo fellows
iu particular, who worried mo beyond
endurance, keeping watch continually
about my door, and threatening mo
with tho law. Upon these threo I vow
ed the bitterest revenge, If ever I should
be so happy as to get them within my
clutches ; antl I believe nothing In tho
world but tho pleasure of this anticipa
tion' prevented me from putting my
plan ofbulcido Into immediate e.xecu
tion, by blowing my brains out with u
blunderbuss. I thought it best, how
ever, to dissemble my wrath, and to
treat them with promises and fair
words, until, by some good turn of fate,
an opportunity of vengeance should bo
Ono day, having given them tho slip,
and feeling moro than usually dejected,
I continued for a long tlmo to wander
about tho most obscure streets without
object, until at length I chanced to
stumble against tho corner of a book
seller's stall. Seeing u chair close at
hand, for the usool customers, I threw
myself doggedly Into it, and, hardly
knowing why, opened tho pages of
thu first volume which came within my
reach. It proved to bo n small punipli
lot treatise on Speculative Astronomy,
written either by Professor Encko of
Berlin, or by n Frenchman of some
what similar name. Iliad somo little
tincture of Information on matters of
this nature, und soon became more nnd
moro absorbed in tho contents of tho
book reading it actually through twice

was pushing around me. By this time
it began to grow dark, and I directed
my steps toward home. But tho treat

pneumatics, lately communicated tome
a an Important secret, by a cousin from

ed carefully over hi my memory tho
wild and sometimes unlutelllgibloreiis
oniugs of the writer. Thero tiro somo
particular pa-sstiges which affected my
Imagination iu an extraordinary man
ner. Tho longer 1 meditated upon theso
tho moro Intcnso grew tho Interest
which had been exciteil within me. Tlio
limited nature of my education in gen
eral, and moro especially my ignoranco
on subjects counected with natural
philosophy, so far from rendering me
diffident of my own ability to compre
hend what I had read, or Inducing mo
to mistrust the many vaguo notions
which had arisen in consequence, mere
ly served nsn farther stimulus to Imagi
nation; and I was vain enough, or per
hups reasonable enough, to doubt
whether those crude Ideas which, aris
ing In ill-regulntcd minds, have till tho
appearance, may not often In effect pos
sess ull the force, tho reality, and other
inherent properties of Instinct or intui
tion. It was latu when I leached homc,uud
I went Immediately to bed. My mind,
however, was too much occupied to
sleep, and I lay tho wholo night burled
lu meditation. Arising early In tho
morning,! repaired eagerly to tho book'
seller's stall, and laid out what little
ready money I possessed, In tho pur
cluiso of somo volumes of Mechanics
and Practical Astronomy, Having ar
rived at homo safely with these, I do

A great many years ago there was
a clergyman In a town in Massachusetts,
whom wo may call Rev. Mr. Cogswell,
who had an old and favorite servant by
tho name of Ctiffee. As was often tho
case, Cuffeo had as much liberty to do
as ho pleased as any body In tho houso ;
and ho probably entertained a high re
spect for himself. On tho Sabbath, ho
might havo been seen In the minister's
pew, looking around with a grand air,
aud, so far as appearance indicated,
profiting quite as much by his master's
preaching as many others about him.
Cuffeo noticed, ono Sunday mornlug,
that several gentleman wero taking
notes of tlio sermon, and ho dotonnlncd
to do tho samo thing. So, In tho after
noon, ho brought a sheet ot payer nnd
a pen and Ink. Tho minister happen
ing to look Into his pew, could hardly
malutntn his gravity, as he saw the ue
gro "spread out" to his task, with ono
side of his faco nearly touching his pa
per, and ills tonguo thrust out of his
mouth. Cuffeo kept at his notes, how
over, until tho sermon wus concluded,
knowing nothing and caring us Ilttlo
about tho wonderment of his master.
When tho minister reached home, ho
sent for Cuireo to come to ills study.
"Well, Cuffeo," said ho, "what wero
you doing lu mcoting tills afternoon'.'"
"Doing, massa? Taking nole3l" was
"You taking notes?" exclaimed tho
"Surtln, massa; nil tho gentlemen
"Well, then, let mo nco them," said
Cuffeo thereupon produced his sheet
of paper; and his master found it
scrawled all over with nil sorts of marks
ami lines, as though a dozen spiders,
dipped in Ink, had marched over it.
"Why this Is all nonsense," said the
minister, as ho looked nt tho notes."
"Well, mnssa," Cuflio replied, "

und hitched him to tho identical tree,
from tho limbs of which tho lads wero
lowing tho circus. To tho 'boy9 up In a

fearing they would cither loso tho clos

If ho should discover them 'dead head

only themselves, nnd tho aulmals on

off. About this tlmo Romeo commenced
to Investigate matters above him, and
with his trunk commenced trimming

commenced climbing also until they
