REN.ed,ItY IN EAST INDIA
The following rerrunicable poem appeared originally,
it is believed in the St. Helena Magazine, and emus alter
' wards copied into the London Spectator and other jour
nals. It will be new to most renders. It relates to the
early services of English othiers in India when the army
was mowed down by pestilence. When Mr. Macaulay's
account of die effects of oR.all pox is remembered, as it
describes the separation of brothers, sisters and lovers, it
will he seen that this poem gives, with wonderful effect,
what is far nobler, however painful, the very poetry of
military despair, but null the dying together of brothers

It seems that the dead are there.
But stand to your glasses, steady;
We drink to our comrades' eyes,

Not here are the goblets glowing;
Not here as the vintage sweet;

And dark, as the doom we inert.

And soon shall our pulses rise,—

Not a tear for the friends that sink;

The maiden was l'ruit4y frightened,'lbY
re t o
she could not spin. the fl _ even should she
live to be three hund rpars old,':.and
should sit at it every dayt, miriornirig till
night. As she was nowssipturshe began to
weep, and sat so three dais without turning
aband. . -.
On the third day theAueert came,., and
wondered when she saw ltir'e was :nothing
spun. 'The maiden excused herself by Say
ing that she was so sadbeirig so -widely
separated from her mothe r's-house, thatshe
could not yet begin. Ttlsa Queen re
ceived, but said, upon going-aviay; "To-mora
row you must commenceyenr work."
As the maiden was alone again, and knew
not how to advise or 134:3ierself, she step
ped, in her distress, to the-window. There
she saw three women approaching, of whom
the first had a broad, fiat' foot ; the second'
had an under lip so large that it hung down
over her chin ; and theOird had a broad
thumb. As she renutinedhefore the window
they stopped, looked up, and asked the
maiden what she wanted.z.
After she relatedto thein her trouble, they
offered her theirassistau4, and said, "If you
will invite us - to your wfdding, and not be
arhamed of us, call us yofir aunts, and give
us seats at the table, thiii will we spin up
your flax in quick time,".
"With all my heart," answered she, come
now, and begin to work.';'
So she let in the magical women, and made
a hole in the flax in the first chamber, where
they seated themselves and began their spin
ning. The first drew out the thread and
trod the wheel; the second moistened the
thread, and the third reeled it and struck
with her finger upon the t table, and as often
as she struck, a skein of yarn fell to the floor
and it was spun in the finest manner.
The maiden concealed :the three spinners
from the Queen, and showed her, as often
as she came, such qualities of spun yarn,
that the latter found no sad to her praise.
When the first ehatraii MIS cleared, they
went to the second, antl;it last to the third
which was soon ended. rlcow 4 .the three wo
men, took their loarv,elf , elsidt,t9 the girl..
As the maiden showed the Queen the emp
ty rooms, and the great piles of yarn, she
began making preparations for the wedding.
The bridegroom was delighted that he was
going to have so skillful and expeditious a
wife, and praised her very much.
"I have three aunt-," said the maiden,
"who have been very good to me, and I
would not willingly forget them in my pros-
P , rui" that 1 invite them to the
wedding, and give them eats at the table."
The Queen and bridegroom gave a willing
At last, when the feast had commenced,
three curiously dres.ed women stepped in.
"Ali!" said the bridegroom, "how came
you by these deformed relatives?"
Thereupon, he went to the one with a
broad flat foot, and asked—" Why have you
such a broad foot?" "From treading," said
she, "from treading."
Then he went to the second and said—
" From whence have you that long under
"From moistening, thread," answered she,
from moistening thread."
Then asked he the third—" Why have you
t broad thumb?"
From thread twi<ting," answerf•d she,
"from thread twisting.'
"Then shall my beautiful bride henceforth
never, lir rer touch a wheel."
Thus did she get rid of the bad flax spin-
A RUSSIAN MISTRESS JEALOUS OF
The ..1116toncitte Zeilitng of the 21st ofJuly,
gives the following illustration of serfdom in
Russia, as of recent occurrence:
Among the serfs owned by a widow lady,
was a girl who had been brought up with
unusual indulgence, had received a superior
education, and acquired manners far more
cultivated than belonged to her class, to
which advantages was added the natural i
gift of an attractive person. At an early
age she, was apprenticed at St. Petersburg
to a French dressmaker; and having attain-;
ed to some skill in the business, was af
ter a time offered profitable employment.
This her mistress permitted her to accept,
on the usual payment of an obrok to herself ,
in lieu of her personal service. The girl con- j
ducted herself well in her situation, acquired
a knowledge of the French language and I
formed habits of considerable refinement.—
Ilere site attracted the notice of an officer of;
the rank of colonel, who in due time proved,
his attachment by offering marriage. The
girl accepted the propasal, and nothing re-1
mained but to obtain her freedom from her
mistress. The purchase money the colonel
was willing to pay. This ought to have
been regulated by the amt.; which the girl s
had paid, calculated by so many years' pur- •
chase. The officer, however, was not dispo
sed to cavil abeutthe price, but on applying
to the mistress, 1.(.. whom he unfortunately
explained his purpose, he received for an
swer that on no terms whatever would she
emancipate her slave.
Every effort was used to shake the resolu
tion, which appeared unaccountable ; but
argument entreaty and money were alike un
availing, and the lady remained inexorable,
giving in the end the clue to her obstinacy
by observing that she would never ate her

was necessarily broken of, and the girl's
prospect of happiness destroyed. To com
plete her missery, her mistress revoked her
leave of absence, and ordered her as soon as
possible to return to her native village.!--
Arrived in the village the unhappy girl, ac
customed to the habits and customs of civil

"TROTTING OUT" LONGFELLOW.
But to add to the zest of this up-the-Mis
sissippi trip, you must know that the good
boat Northern Belle also bore as one of her
passengers the veritable Longfellow. The
Historical Society had extended to the poet
lan invitation to be present at the Corner-stone
laying, and a distinctly marked trunk, "11.
W. Longfellow." coming Alp board, settled
the fact that the author of Hiawatha was one
of our number. But which:is he? was the
oft-repeated question, and norm answered ex
cept to guess. At the table each one was
looking most intently at.the other, todivine
which was the poet, and alt wondered why
every one stared so. This man, was pro
nounced the poet because he werao mous

we noted that the filet as to who was Long
fellow, was settled either by the excess or

was to "trot out" Longfellow. Finally, by
the aid of the clerk, the number of the state

placed at either door of 30 so that no one
could escape thence undetected. Soon thel

school in Massachusetts, an humble, eonsci

him put forth on foot to settle in a remote
town in that State, and pursue his fortunes
there as a shoemaker, his tools being care
carefully sent on before him. In a short
time he is in business in the post of county
surveyor fur Litchfield county, being the
most accomplished mathematician in that
section of the State. Before he is twenty
five years of age, we find him supplying the
astronomical matter of an almanac in New
York. Next he is admitted to the bar, a
self-fitted lawyer. Now he is found on the
bench of the Supreme Court of the State.—
Next he becomes a member of the Conti

the committee of sixtofname the Declaration

THE PERILS OF LISPING
The following is said to be a veritable in

Protestant Episcopal church :
A couple brought their little child to me
one day to be baptised, and upon my enquir

heard wnuti. which resembled very much
one of the title: best,we J uit,t. the arch en

sane word, to my horror, was far more dis
tim•tly repeated. "Lucifer!" said Ito my
self "impassible : I cannot baptize a child
by F . oell a name." I I,ent over once more
and a third time asked the question. The
answer was still the same, and repeated

squall, as if to eanvineo me he was entitled
to that name. I could stand the scene no
longer: so hastily dipping ray finger in the
font, and resolving he should have a good
name, as opposite as possible to the diaboli

infant George Washington. I thought the
parents looked queer at the time, but the
rite was performed ; the baby had got an
excellent name, and I wee relieved. But

the mother lisped, and when I asked for the

to say "Lucy, sir," in reply to my question

for Lucifer. What was to be done? I con

THE STAR SPANGLED. BANNER
•If the French hymn of Liberty, the Mar ,
scllaise, was composed under exciting air—
cu instances, the Star Spangled Banner was
inspired by events no less patriotic by our
distinguished countryman; Mr. Francis - Scott
Key, an able and eloquent lawyer, an accom

crousimpulses. • During the war with the
British in 1814, Mr. P. Scott Key was re- '
biding in Baltimore'and hearing of the • do-`
tention of a dear and intimate friend, he
started to obtain his release. He went sus'

eighty-five miles north of the Potomac river.
Here he was arrested and carried on board
a British man of war, belonging to the Brit

linnbardnaent of which he was compelled to
witness. The English admiral boasted he
roic Mr. Key, that he would take the fort in
a few hours, and the city of Baltimore, with
in the two succeeding days. The bombard
ment continued during the whole day and
following night, without making an impres
sion either on the strength of the works or
the spirit of the garrison.
Our patriotic countryman stood on the
deck watching, through the smoke that
' sometimes obscured it, the banner of free
dom waving over the fort. At length night

With a beating heart he turned towards the

ith its stars and stripes, the banner of free
dom and independence, then in its early
s. It was at this moment of joy and
triumph that Francis Scott Key, under the
influence of patriotic excitement, composed
the Star Spangled Banner. After Mr. Key
mad been liberated, and the British had re
from Fort Mellcury, without attempt

conti;leted his patriotic hymn, which was
enthusiastically received then, and has ever
been considered as one of the nationalsonge
of onr country.
following is well worthy apiece.,
if for no other reason, for the important
moral which it conveys and enforces:
Sydney Smith, the late lamented prelate
and pre-eminent satirist of the follies and
ices of his time, (and the present,) while
• travelling, inn stage-coach one day, was long
' walleyed by a young man who had acquired
the polite art of swearing to such an extent,
that he could no help interlarding his die
, course with it, as though it were a constitu
'en t part of the language. As there happen
ed to he a holy present, the matter was
After enduring the young man's display •
j for some time, Smith asked the company to
be permitted to tell them a little anecdote;
which he thus commenced:
I -'Once upon a time (boots, sugar tongs
j and tinder boxes,) there was a king (boots,
sugar tongs and tinder boxes,) who, at a
grand hall (bouts, sugar tongs and tinder
boxes,) picked up the Duchess of (boots,
sugar tongs road tinder boxes,) Shrewsbury's
garter [boots, sugar tongs and tinderboxes)
and said, 'lloni soft qui mai y (boots, sops
tongs and tinder boxes.) pease,' which
' means in English, Evil to him, who (boots.
sugar tongs and tinder boxes,) evil thinks.
This was the origin of (hoots, sugar tongs
and tinder bores,) the order of the garter."
When the witty clergyman had concluded,
the young gentleman said:
"A very good story, sir—rather old—but
what the d—l 'has Loots, sugar tongs and
tinder boxes, to do with it?"
"I will tell you, my young friend," en
swered Sydney, "when you tell me what •
'd—n my eyes' etc., have to do with your
conversation. In the mean time, allow me
to say, that is my style of swearing."

This anecdote forcibly illustrates the re
mark, that of all vices profane swearing, in '
a mere worldly point of view, is the moat
foolish. Other vices may havesome sensual
pleasure to palliate them. but 'the profane -
swearer gains nothing by his - indulgence.
