THE *SLY DEAD.
He rests, but ncT47rest of sleep,
AVcighs downs sunken eyes;
The rigid slumbtats too deep,
The calm tooli;lathless lies!
Srunk are the wateicaing veins that streak
The fixed and trble brow;
There is no life-1 l 1 on the check—
Deatd death! liknow thee now!
Pale King of Terr rs: thou art here—
in all thy dark y:
But 'tts the imni 'cep and fear
Bring flowers afid n trown the early dead,
Their hour of Bandage past—
But woe for thoseixho mourn and dread,
And linger till tlAr last.
Spring bath its music and its bloom,
And morn its glaiimas
But still a shadow front the tomb,
A sadness and a light,
Arc ever on cardis 4veli:,t things;
The breath of clyauge is there,
And death his dusk - shadow flings
O'er all that' loved and fair.
So let it be—for neer on earth
Should man his home prepare;
The spirit feels fit betivenly birth,
And spurns ut mortal cure.
E'en s* lion pursing ‘wsrtlt and genius dio
Let no vain teursle shed,
But bring bright wreaths of victory,
.And crown the early dead.

DIRTY HABITS OF THE
These unsophisticated children of the fur
-1 est land never wash off dirt—for the simple
reason that, of dirt, as such, they have no
conception or idea. If their faces get so
foul as to clog their nostrils, they open the
air passages just as they clear away the of
fal from the door of their tent, when it im
pedes their ingress and egress. On our ex
plaining to a woman that we wished her to
wash her face she at first refused; but being
bribed with a paper of needle., she caught
a bird, skinned it. and spitting on its fresh
bleeding skin, polished her face with it.—
My friend Mayonk had dirt on his face one
quarter of an inch thick when I first saw
him. The next time I met bins I did not
recognize him, and and actually requested
Mayonk himself to send Mi.yonk to me.—
Two of our sailors had caught him, and in
spite of his struggle., insisted on washing
his face. He did not seem to appreciate
the improvement made in his appearance;
on the contrary he was quite mortified, for
he had become the laughing stock of his
I would speak plainly of the personal
habits of these people if it were only fur the
benefit of a class of philosophers among us
who delight in chanting tho vices of civiliza
tion, and dreaming of what man might be if
he could only get back to a state of nature.
But there are pictures, and life-like ones,
that we cover with a curtain.
Improvidence is another trait of these
'fresh children of impulse.' We . were at
their village as late as the 19th of August.
Yet, although the auks were flying around
them in such quantities that one man could
have been able to catch a thousand an hour,
they had not enough prepared for winter to
last two days. They were all disgustingly
fat, and always eating—perhaps an average
ration of nineteen pounds per diem—yet
they had lost seven by starvation during the
last winter, though relieved, as far as we
could make it Out, by the "Doeto Kayene".
They suffer dreadfully from cold, too, yet
there is abundance of excellent peat which
they might dig during the summer. They
know its value as fuel, and are simply too
lazy to stock it.
The little auk which forms their principal
food, may be said also to bo their only fuel.
Indeed it quite fills the place the seal holds
among the most southern Esquimaux.—
I Their clothes are lined with its skins, they
burn the fat, and setting aside, the livers and
hearts, to he dried and consumed as bonbons
during the winter, they cat the meat and
lintestines cooked and raw, cold and at blood
heat. I remember one night a child woke
up crying with cold feet. His mother
reached out to one side of the bed, took up
a pair of birds, killed them, turned the
skins inside out, and drew them while still
warm on to his feet, to serve as stoekingl,
pulling his little boots on after them.
They are very hospitable; the minute we
arrived, all hands began to catch birds and
prepare them fur use. Tearing off the skins
I with their teeth, they stripped the breasts
to be cooked and presented to us, with the
juicy entrails and remaining portions to cat
raw, to stay our appetites. The viands did
not look inviting to us who had witnessed
their preparation; but they appeared so
hurt at our refusing to eat, that we bad to
explain, that it was not cooked, but raw
birds we wanted. This was satisfactory.—
They set out at once to catch some for us:
and in a few moments three of them were
on their way down to our boat laden with
Their way of catching them is peculiar.—
They have small scoop nets, attached to
long poles, not unlike those fur catching en
tomological specimens. A man will take
one of these, and having stripped of"' his
jumper, and tied its sleeves so that he may
Use it as a sack, will lay himself down on
the hill side, and net the birds, three or
four at a time, taking them out une by one
and biting their heads; ur, if he d_c.; not
wish to take their lives at once, merely
locking their wings. We saw piles of auks
flying about the village in this cmliticn.
They have no regular hours for meals or
sleep, but each sleeps, wakes or eats as best
pleases him. I don't know anything which
impresses one more forcibly than the dis
gusting nearness of man to the brute, than
to sea a human being, thus wake front sleep
stretch out his hand, sieze a bird, and after
devouring it raw like a wolf, turn over and
go to sleep again. Aad yet they are not
wanting in courtesy of quite an elevated
character. For instance, Mrs. Mitch, the
widow of a chief apologized to me for her
see.ning want of hospitality on one oseasion,
and explained to me by most expressive
signs, and no inconsiderable exposure of
her person, that she hoped she was about to
present the house of Mitch. wit to heir.—
She was as fortunate asshehar; for I saw
her not quite an hour afterwards, walking
about with a fine boy, both parties looking
as unconcerned as if nothing unusual had
ever happened to either. The small animal
was the imago of his father, and dressed in
a costume similar in cut and color to that of
nil complete—the only difference being that
the skin of the white fix was substituted
for that of the bear.
p_'o'Stract we Us
They always take off their clothes on go
ing to sleep; and men, women and children
all lie coddled up together to keep them
selves warm. If you come on them, sud
denly, in this plight, they aro not abashed,
but will politely offer to make room for you
to join the group. It is well however to ac
cept these hospitalities with some reserve.—

THE SMITH OF RAGF,NBACH
1 In the Principality of Holtenlohe, Lau
genburg, is a village culled Ragenbach,
where about twenty years ago the following
heart-rending but also heroic event took
place. One afternoon in the early spring
or autumn, my kind intirmant did not ex
:wily know which, in the tavern room or
Ragenbach, several men and Nvomen hating
assembled front the village, sat at thch ease,
none anticipating what would happen on
that eventful day. The stnith formed ere
of the merry company, a strong, vigorous
man, with a resolute countenance and daring
mien, but also with such it good natured
smile upon his lips that every one Rho saw
him admired him. E%cry evil disk:used per
son shunned him, fur the val:ant smith
would allow nothing wrong in his pre: ence,
and it was not ads isable to have anything
to do with him except in a proper manner.
His arms were like bars of iron, and his
fists like forge hammer., so that few could
equal his strength of body.
The brave smith sat near the door chatting
with one of his neighbors, I know not what;
all at once the door sprang open, and a large
dog came staggering into the room, a great,
strong, powerful beast, with a ferocious,
frightful aspect, his head was hanging down
and his eyes bloodshot, his red colored
tongue hanging half way out of his mouth
and his tail dropped between his legs. Thus
the ferocious beast entered the room, out of
which there was no escape but by one door.
Scarcely had the smith's neighbor, who was
bath keeper of the place, seen the animal,
when he became deathly pale, sprang up
and exclaimed with a horrid voice, "Good
Heavens, the dog is mad:"
Then rose an outcry! the room was full of
men and women, and the foaming beast
stood before the only entrance; no ono could
leave without passing hint. He snapped
savagely right and left, and no one could
pass him without being bitten. This in
creased the horrible confusion. All sprang
up and shrank from the furious dog, with
agonizing countenances. Who should deliv
er them from him? The smith also stood
among them, and as he saw the anguish of;
the people, it dashed across his mind how
many cf his happy and contented neigh
bors would ho made miserable by a mad
dog, and ho formed a resolution, the like of ,
which is scarcely to be found in the history
of the human race for high mindedness and
nobleness. Certainly his brown cheek paled
a little, but his eyes sparkled with divine
fire, and an elevated resolution shone from
the smotrth brew of the simple minded man.

"Back all!" thundered he with his deep
strong voice. ''Let no one stir, for no one
can vanquish the Least but I. One victim
must fall in order to save all, and I will be
that victim, I will hold the brute, and whiLt
Idu so, make your escape." The smith had
scarcely spoken these words, when the dog
started towards the shrieking people. But
he went not far. "With God's help!" cried
