JAMES A. BROWN has just opened
The thermometer is nine degrees be
low zero and yet it is falling. 'Tie
very cold l How it snows! flow it
blows I Ugh, the chills run over me.
Thank God I have this comfortable
shelter—wonder if the poor aro all en
joying comfort, or if there is any mor
tal obliged to endure this weather
shelterless, without the comfort of a
cheerful grate ? Ah, the fire is pleas
ant, I will change my coat for my
wrapper; my boots for my slippers,
and take ease in my old arm chair.
Thus, solliloquized Dr. Blanchard, af
ter he had arrived safely home from
Colton five miles distant, where he had
been called professionally.
After seating himself in the old arm
chair, which was one of olden style
and occupied a place in the homestead
since the days of his great grand fath
er—consequently it was considered a
relic of more than ordinary value, he
examined the package of mail he had
received on hie way home. Letter after
letter was opened. One inquired about
this disease and another that. Some
wished one prescription, some another,
and a few advocated the true princi
ple of honesty by enclosing amount duo.
"What can this he ?" he loudly re•
marked, picking up at the same time
a paper. "Literary Caseaon," "that's
something new," he said, for that was
the heading. "I am glad to have
something of this kind to read such
blustery evenings." Column after col•
umn was perused until suddenly his
eyes fell on an article entitled, "Wee
to the Bachelor," by C****. Now the
Doctor was one of that peculiar title
and of course was interested. It was
a very imprudent article, thought he.
Why are we called monstrous? Why
vagabonds, inhuman, forlorn, &c? I
term it indecent—the essence of perti
nonce and I will retaliate. "Where is
my pen and pencil ?" ho.muttered as
he arose from the chair. Soon they
were at hand and the old chair again
occupied. A few moments reflection

THE BACHELOR'S LOVE
When I eaid I would die a bachelor, I did
not think I should lire till l. were married.—
He 18 called, old bachelor,
Monstrosity of life,
Vagabond, forlorn, inhuman,
Because he chooeeth not a wife
Yes, ho is called old bachelor, old
vagabond, forlorn specimen of human
ity, &o. All because ho prefers happi
ness to that of sorrow; peace to that
of rebellion and prosperity to that of
adversity. Old bachelor ! simply be
cause he prefers single blessedness to
that of double thunder. Was not
every man born free and equal and of
the same inalienable rights? Has he
not•the privilege; the pleasure—yea.
the power of doing as he pleases?
Cannot man enwrap himself in the
blessedness of single statedness with
out every body pointing their fingers
at him and endeavoring to stamp the
blush of shame where all is right, bright
and a happy future ? Is he an old
forlorn specimen of humanity, simply
because ho prefers quietness to an in
fant bedlam ? Is be an old cold heart
ed wretch because he would ten thou
sand times rather live in a hut, or
dilapidated hovel by himself, than in a
large mansion or beautiful palace with
a woman who is continually scolding,
eternally brawling and everlastingly
yammering? Is be an old vagabond
—monstrosity of social life, because he
prefers the company of his favorite
dog, or affectionate cat to that of Miss
Wonder, Miss Thunder or old Mrs.
Pollywant? As ouo in the name of
all that is true, harmless and good ask,
why do people strive to heap on our
shoulders that which is unjust, that
which would cause angels to frown
and devils to blush. Ab, methinks I
hear them say, "we know not what
we do." My heart is made to throb—
yet they say it is flinty; my pulse is
made to beat, my eyes sparkle and my
whole soul is made to tremble when I
gaze around me and view the picture
of sorrow, want, grief and despair,
arising from the great fear of being an
old bachelor. See the great panorama
spread out before us. View each pic
ture closely and singly, observe the
poverty, wretchedness, disgrace and
criminalities. See the unhappy homes,
the discontented views and the miser
able little ones. How many have orig
inated from the fear of being an old
bachelor? Would it not be better for
huldreds ; yea thousands of men if they
were enjoying the solitude of a happy
bachelor's life? Would it not have
been better if they had done as I have
done? Endured the fears and sneers
of a portion of inexperienced humani
ty and allowed themselves to become
forlorn ? Take all things into consid-
I oration and remember that if the old
bachelor is a poor forlorn devil, the
1 poor forlorn devil deserves his due.

tette. If so I would bo immediately
suspected as the author of this com
munication, should it appear before
the public eye. I will pursue a different
course. It'twas Claro I will know it.
Clare Roulette was a young man of
great ability. Ho was an original ge
nius and a young man whose every
act foreshadowed a prosperous future.
He was the only son of a wealthy pa
rent, Major John Roulette. The Maj
or was of very humble heritage, his
father being a laboring man, and at
the breaking out of the war of 1812 ho
Enlisted as a private where be con•
tracted a severe cold which termina
tad in consumption—finally death.
Consequently the Major, four brothers
and three sisters with the mother, were
left to the guidance and guardianship
of Divine Providence.
The Major, or rather John, left the
parental roof very soon after the death
of his father, he being the eldest of the
eight children. It was one of those
whole souled, benevolent neighbors
that took John—reared him-up in the
way of wisdom and taught him her
paths were the paths of peace.
At the age of eighteen ho began an
apprenticeship with a shoemaker, that
being his favorite trade. Time rolled
on. At the business he became an ex
pert. So rapidly did be learn, that on
one occasion before he donned "appren
tice" for 'jour," his boe3, be being a
dutchman, remarked, "Sb on will soon
be more as able to instruct as to be in
What a gala day when John was
free. Not only with himself, but with
the old boss who presented John with
a freedom suit worthy the occasion
and a purse of fifty dollars. Extend
ing the latter, he said, "Shon I gives
you dish. You leaves to-morrow—your
fortune you seeks. Alwsys remember
your old boss, and Shon, always mind
the great principle of honesty ish the
goot policy; mind dat Shon and you'll
be a rich man."
The morrow at hand, all things in
readiness, John Roulette started out
on his own responsibility as journey
man shoemaker•. Every effort he
made proved successful. All work
was done on the principle of honesty
—ho seemed destined to prosper. By
strict attention to business on a grand
moral principle he soon became pro-
prietor of a large wholesale and retail
boot and shoe store. At this business
he continued to flourish until one day,
as ho termed it, "becoming tired of the
monotonous handling' of leather," he
became speculator in land. Even in
this, prosperity forsook him not. One
successful speculation after another
added so immensely to his store of
wealth, that to•day he is worth four
hundred thousand dollars.
"God moves in a mysterious way,
His wonders to perform."
The poor journeyman shoemaker a
few years ago is now John Roulette,
the wealthy Major.
About the time Major preferred new
business ho preferred himself a part
ner by choosing the only daughter of
Hon. T. Gale a highly respectable citi
zen in the same town which he resided.
They had two children. Besides
Clare, whom I have already mention
ed, there was Olive, frequently called
the "idolized," originating from her ap
pearance at home as well as in society.
Always pleasant and agreeable. A
friend to the poor as well as to the
more fortunate. Clare considered her
unequaled, excepted by one. She was
pretty. A truer heart never beat, a
purer soul never lived.
"A soft subduing grace around her breath
"Each free and joyous word, that flowed
In music from her tongue,
Like gush of marble fountain, showed
The pure source whence it sprung.
I never saw a cloud come o'er
Her brow of virgin snow,
Except when pity bade her pour,
The tear for others' woe."
It was ono of those beautiful May
evenings after Clare's correspondence
to the "Cassaon" that Dr. Blanchard
loft H.—, after visiting a patient, and
while passing through the town a
storm overtook him. Tho clouds grew
heavier and darkness enshrouded the
earth. One peal of thunder after an
other rent the very heavens. Amethy
stine flame after flame froliced in their
forked course across the horizon. The
Doctor rode - on, thinking "it would
soon blow over, perhaps pass around."
Ho was mistaken. Scarcely bad he
left the town until the rain and hail
fell thick and heavily. nastily rein
ing up his !steed, alighting at a gate of
a very large yard in front of a brick
mansion, ho hitched hie horse, opened
the gate and soon' took shelter in a
grape arbor which afforded little pro.
tection from the icy missiles that fell
regardless of objects. The rain soon
began to find its way through the leafy
covering,the Doctor decided to retreat.
Imagine his surprise when discovering
the horse which ho left at the gate bad
already bade farewell to Doctor, hitch
ing strap and post to lead the advance.
He concluded to remain and maim the
best of it. Down ho sat meditating
exposure of physicians, wet doctor,
horse gone, and worst of all ten miles
to walk. When would he got home 7
How would he got there (1) were
questions arising in his mind. Soon the

through the heavy mist which over
hung the earth. Nature assumed a
different aspect. Sublime were his
thoughts as he sat in the arbor view
ing the beauty of the enclosure. Flow
ers were on every side, representing
nearly every color in the rainbow,
while at the same time, the bow had
arched itself across the eastern sky.
LETTER FROM INDIA
The following is the copy of a pri
vate letter from Rev. J. D. Brown,
who for eight years past has been sta
tioned as a missionary in India:
In Camp at Golagokam Nath,l
Oudh, India, March 8, 1869.
Another day's active duties are
over, and I have time to write you at
least another page. Suppose I give
you a resume of to-day's work. This
will give you a pretty fair specimen of
missionary work of several kinds. I
was about at daylight and my native
cook had me a cup of tea ready by the
time I had dressed. This "chote haz
ari" (little breakfast) is the universal
custom in India, and in a country
which gives a home to so many stom
ach and liver diseases, a cup of tea
and a toast before going out in the
morning are real preventatives from
disease, at least to a great extent, and
I am not sure but that the same ens
torn would prove beneficial in Ameri
ca, especially in the regions in whiob
fever and ague frequently prevail.
This over, 1 sallied forth with one
of my native preachers by name Ab
dul Ali. We met a few persons and
scattered some Gospel seed, much of
which doubtless fell by the wayside.
AL about 8 o'clock, we returned to my
tent and I devoted an hour in the not
by any means light duty devolving
upon me as a member of the Confer
ence Publishing Committee, viz: re
viewing or rather examining a manu
script on Theology in the Urdu lan•
guage. There are three members of
the committee, and all MSS. in Urdu
and Hindi, designed for publication at
our mission press, have to pass through
our hands and undergo inspection and

Next came breakfast, which consist
ed of boiled rice and "chichki," an In
dian dish consisting of 'green peas,
cabbage, potatoes, "ghi," (clarified but
ter,) and a number of Indian spices.
Yon would probably hay& condemned
the whole affair, but to an "old Indi
an" like me, it is no mean dish. With
this I had a cup of good coffee. While
at breakfast the village postman hand
ed me a letter from my wife, a copy of
the Globe of January 13th and the
Christian. Advocate of January 14th.—
These papers had been read and sent
to my camp by my wife. A few min
utes had of course to be devoted to
these highly prized weekly visitors
from home, after which my native
preachers came in to prayers
At about noon I went out to visit a
Government Anglo-vernacular school,
near at hand. Spent over an hour in
examining the boys in the various lan
guages taught, i. e.,
Hindi and Persian. I concluded with
an address in which I did not forget to
introduce religion, wrote my opinion
of the school in the "Visitor's Book,"
and returned to my tent: Spent ano
ther hour on the Urdu manuscript and
wrote a letter to my wile. In the
meantime my cook was preparing my
dinner, which consisted of grilled chic
ken, boiled potatoes and very good
cold slaugh, or rather hot slaugh,
which by the way I had taught my
cook how to make.
Dinner was over at 5 o'clock, and
taking ono of my native preachers I
started for the Bazaar, for onr regular
evening preaching. I had no trouble
in collecting a good sized crowd on the
street, to which I triad to explain the
folly of idolatry, and the way of salva
tion through Christ. When I had
spoken about half an hour I intro
duced my native preacher and sat just
behind him, while he followed up my
sermon with a solemn warning con
cerning the awful end to which'thoy
were fast hastening. While he was
speaking, an impudent Brahmin came
into the crowd and tried hard to get
the people to go away and leave that
"babbler," who as ,he said, was only
talking nonsense; but two or three
persona turned on him with unusual
independence, (for the people general
ly are afraid of the Brahmins,) and
told him that if he did not wish to
hear ho could go about his business
and not trouble them. By the time
my native preacher had finished his
address it was getting dark. So we
turned our faces toward our tents,
which we reached just as dark had
settled down over the grove. A cup
of tea was relished after the hard work
of out-doer preaching, which by the
way is much more tiresome than
preaching in a church. The Globe
claimed a little more attention; ppen•
ing it I found and read through care.

I was also much gratified to learn from
another column that the caucus of Re

had honored themselves by unanimous

elected, and will prove to be one of the
most reliable men in that august body.
After finishing the perusal of the Globe

done you goad. After pleading earn
estly for a blessing on the poor, delu
ded thousands gathering here in 'the
vain hope that they scan wash away
their sins in a pool of duty water near
at hand, he eontinued his prayer (in
Hindostan of course) about thus:—
"Now, Lord, why not save these thou
sands, yea, all of the people at thieMe

that we may get honor thereby, but
that thy name may be glorified. There
is nothing too hard for thee, 0, Lord I
Come then, we entreat thee, and - save
save all these people, &0., &c." After
prayers my dear native brethren went
to their little tent alongside of mine,
not forgetting to utter tenderly the
genuine oriental salutation "Salaam,"-
which means, as you know, "peace."'
May God bless those dear servants of
Christ One of them has nearly
preached his lungs away. I doubt if
he will live another year. Just now
one of them called nut to the clowki-'
dare mentioned in the former part of
this letter, "Chowkidar, khabardar
mho," i. e., "Watchman, be vigilant."
The watchman who was half asleep,.
simply gave a grunt and repeated the
name of his god "Ram:rara." But
heavy eyes warn me that it is time to
conclude the recreations ae well as la

you and yours, as well as my owe
dear ones, I Bay good night. ,
March 10.—The people are , gather:
ing by thousands, singing the praises
of their heathen idols or rather deities,
as they come. One or two in a crowd
will sing almost through a verse, the.
last word of which is "mahadeo,"-but
just as he reaches that word ail the
crowd, men, women and children,joia
in, at the top of their voices, and make
the plains ring again with "mabadeo"
(the great god.) Sitting in my tont
I can see the crowd passing, , like a
straggling army, toward the sacred
pool. Here aro men with children on
their shoulders; there a woman with a,
four year old boy naked, with the ex
ception of a few charms, principally:
consisting of shells, tied around his,
neck. The boy sits astraddle of her
shoulders; balanced on her bead is a
mud vessel, a kind of large jar; before
her walks a diminutive donkey, with a,
baby in one side of the pannier, and
some vegetables, etc., in the other.—
Here comes a fakir finely dressed, i. e.,
his hair, which reaches almost to his
heels, is stiff with a rather odorous
ointment, which is simply cow dung;
over his entire body is smeared a thick ;
coat of ashes. This is the amount 'of
his toilet, always excepting a string of.
sacred wooden beads, which be carries•
in his hand, and turning one after ano
ther over his fingers, mutters "Ram
ram." By - him walks a Mohammedan ,
fakir, more decently dressed. -He
wears no tnrban, and hie long robe is,
dyed a dull orange color. This son
of the false prophet heartily despises
his Hindoo brother—calls him a "kaf
fir", a dog, &0., but you observe he too
bassi:String obeads, which be counts
as be goes, repeating as each,bead
drops from his fingers "Alab, labk"'
(God, God,) or "Subban Ala, Subban
Ala," (Praise God, praise God I) "
Here comes a big fat Rajah riding
on an elephant. Before him rides a.
man on horse-back, with an old fash
ioned boo-hive shaped drum banging.
on either side of his horses, shoulders,
like a cavalryman's holsters. These.
drums he beats vigorously, but fails to.
make as good music as you and I used
to bring out of mother's old brass ket
tle. Beggar boys by the dozen run
beside 'arid behind the elephant, and
perform gymnastic feats which far
out-do anything old Huntingdon hope
fuls dare venture. See yon wiry little:
fellow has made a wheel of himself,
and throwing ,himself sidewise goad,
over and over faster than the 'elephant
can walk. At each turn he shouts :
"moharar (greatliajah)"Abad raken"
(may you live for ever.) Servants,
dressed in all styles precede and follow
"his majesty," some on camels, some,
on horses, others on mules, asses and
bullocks, Red many on foot. Next
follows a long line of pilgrims, each.
carrying a basket filled with diminu,
tive bottles of Ganges water on each
end of a bamboo, thrown across the
shoulder. But enter• the Bazaar.—
What a sight! Here are men from
Cabul and Cashmere with dried - fruite
of various kinds, a step farther brings,
us to the shop of an enterprising go
,hammedan. Here you can buy almost
' anything from a row of pins to a Yan
kee clock. The shopman recognizee,
the "Pudu sohib" (me) and lISIFS me to
grant him prosperity for the day .by
buying something. Now wo meet
some boys who attend the English
schools in various parts of the district.
Not wishing to lose so fair an opportu
nity for displaying their English, they
step forward and say (just remember
it is 4 o'clock, P. M.) "Good morning,
isir," (they cannot say "sir" without
putting an i before it,) "are your hon-.
or well?" Remembering distinctly
our own blunders when we began to
talk Hindostan, we smile as easily as
possible, and answer in a language'
they understand much better than
they ever will English. But preach.
ing hour has come. See yonder crowd
listening to my native preachers ex
pounding the word of life. I must go
and take my turn, for the crowd wilk
not disperse until after dark:
