"NO ENTERTAINMENT IS
A. SICK MAN'S DREAM
This beautiful piece of poetry was written by the late
Judge Robert 'Raymond Reed, of Georgia, afterward
Governor of Florida It has never appeared in print
before, and the lady for whom it was penned—now a
resident of our city—has kindly consented to give it to
the public through our columns. It is one of those
choice yet unobtrusive gems, struck out from a rich
mine of thought, that has only to see the light to have
its beauties appreciated —Montgomery (Ala.) Journal.
Methought that in a sacred wood,
I slumbered on a bank of flowers.
Soothed by a streamlet's wandenng flood,
That gurgled thro' the whispering bowers;
Aud dreams did visit me—so bright,
An Elysium only could beget them;
They brought me such intense delight,
I never, never can forget them.
It seemed that thou avert present there,
Thine eyes with living lustre beaming;
The star of too ' g decked thy hnir,
And all around its radiance streaming,
Imparted to tiny lip—thy cheek—
The lnrightiness of immortal glory;
0! we cunt infer such visions seek,
But ins some old romantic story!
And near thee hung a lyre of gold,
Beneath a Lower of sanding roses—
Rose:—like those that love enfold,
When from hie tails the god reposes
And when thy finger., touched the wings,
They yielded number*, rich and swelling*,
Al when some %Pint sweetly sings
At evening, from her viewless dwelling.
Yet changeful was that music strain,
It told of hope, of youth, nod gladness;
Of pleasure's wreath, of true love's chain,
And then of blighted joys and sadness,
At tact mt answering voice there came,
rrom a bright cloud that then descended,
And while it spoke a quivering flame
Was with the fleecy whiteness blended.
I may not tell the words so kind,
By that name plaintive voice then spoken;
For the dark nittlitostorin's rudest wind
Came der my dream, and it was broken.
But lady, trancuil be thy hours,
And smooth the patk.of life before thee,
For surely, from celestial boxer,
Some happy spirit watches o'er thee!

PLEASURE SO LASTING."
TING, NOVEMBER 8, 1856.
Don't let them. Anger is a pure waste of
vitality. It is always foolish and always
disgraceful, except in some very rare cases,
when it is kindled by seeing wrong done to
another; and even that noble rage seldom
. mends the matter. Keep in a good humor.
No man does his best except when he is
cheerful. A light heart ranked' nimble
hands, and keeps the mind free and alert.—
No misfortune is so great as one that sours
the temper. Until Cheerfulness is lost, noth
ing is lost. Keep in a good humor.
The company of a good humored man is
a perpetual feast; he is welcomed every
where, eyes glisten at his approach and dif
ficulties vanish in his presence. Franklin's
indomitable good humor did as much for his
country in the old Congress as Adams' fire 1
or Jefferson's wisdom; Ito clothed wisdom 1
with smiles, and softened contentious minds
into acquiescence. Keep in a good humor. I
A good conscience, a sound stomach, a I
clean skin, arc elements of g , ...1 humor.—.
Get them, and keep them, and—be , nro to !
keep in a good humor.
It is a common observation of those who
have visited Mahometan countries, that no
present of pure liberality should be made to
either Turks or Moors, lest it introduce
custom, which, when the advantage is on
their side, is insi , ted upon as a law, both at
Algiers and at the Levant. This has laid
the consuls under the inconvenience ofmak
ing many presents to those in the adminis
tration, when their predecessors had some
private end in setting the example. If a
stranger on any particular occasion, makes
a present to a Turk or Moor, be constantly
demands it on the like occurrence, and his
successors look upon it as an established
perquisite of their employment.
The practice of extortion is so burdensome
and so frequent, that liberality cannot be
too much on its guard. In the year 'Gm
in the reign of !Logi Chaban Dey, a Greek
merchant, who resided at Algiers, used al
most every year to make a voyage to Tunis,
or Egypt, retailing his cargo. A country
man of his dying, left him his executor, and
among other pious legacies, a certain sum
for charitable uses. One day the merchant

industry in making thread laces, w ten in
capable of other work. He dropped him
his handful of aspors, which unusual sight
so transported the beggar, that he followed
the merchant upon his crutches, calling out
upon heaven to Shower down its blessings
upon him. The beggar did not leave fol
lowing his benefactor, till be discovered his
house, and afterwards took past in a place
where the merchant must daily pass by
him. Nett day the Moor implored
charity, and the Greek repeated it, which
gained him great reputation, and a crowd
of customers. the Mahometan priests were
not wanting to proclaim the virtue which
God had given to this chatitable Greek, who
finding the sweets of a charity which really
cost him nothing. eon tinned his daily bencv
olence till the time of his departure from
Egypt. Thu beggar still kept his post, but
missing his benefactor, he inquired after
him and had the mortification to hear that ,
he had gone out of the kingdom. When' ;
his clerk passed by, he used to lift up his
hands and pray for his master's happy re
turn, which happened five or six months af-;
ter. Tbe beggar was overjoyed to see him:
and when the merchant, in return for his
compliments, was going to bc.tow his char
ity upon him, •leclined it, saying it was bet
ter to pay him for all his arrears at once.—
The Greek told him he did not know what
he meant by arrears. To which the other
replica, that he had been absent near six
months, and conrcquently that there was
about one hundred ana eighty rails duo.—
The Greek did not know whether the fel
low's impudence deserved most to be laugh
:ed at, or cluthtisetl. But the Moor laid his
complaint before the Bey, and the Creek
merchant was seat for to make his defence.
The Moor alleged that the merchant had,
for the continuance of a whole month, daily
given him a rail, but that this charity had
greatly increased his customers. and been a
fund of riches; and that as to himself, upon
, such a daily income, he was very glad to
leave off working: which from having nearly
lost his sight, had become very painful to
hint; that the merchant went away without
giving hint the least notice that his pension
was to cease: that he had still kept at his
post, praying to God for his return; besides
that relying upon his accustomed liberality,
he lutd contracted some debts for his Rap
port; but upon demanding his arrears, the
merchant had laughed at him, and threat
ened to chastise him.
The Greek did not disown the truth of the
premises, but insisted that alms being a
voluntary action, its continuance depended
upon the will of the doner. After s discus
sion of the affair in council, the merchant
was condemned to pay the beggar a rial for
every day since his departure, to the day of
his decision, with a piastre over and above
as a compensation for his reproaches. He
empowered him at the same time to declare
that it was his intention never to give him
any alms or gratuity for the time to come.
This the merchant many times protested, ad
ding, that such a sentence would not soon

have no reason to doubt its truth. Nay, we
who live in a christian land may too often
discover a striking analogy between the
Moorish beggar's idea of justice, and the
conduct of many who clamorously demand
as a right, that which they have been long
accustomed to receive as a benefaction.—
Happily we have no law to enforce such a
demand; but we have a powerful word to
mark our sense of such conduct—and that

Charpentier, the principal of this immense
breach of trust, conducted the affair with a
coolness, a method, a surety of execution
which denotes a great aptitude for financial
transactions. He is but twenty-tire years
of age, and was a man of high life—what
we would call a fast loan. It is remarka
ble how this fact could have escaped M.
Rothschild's attention. On one occasion in
company with one of the directors of the
company, Charpentier left fall a hundred
franc bill. His companion made a motion
to pick it up, when Charpentier, with his
tine patent leathers, kicked it into the fire
with the exclamation, "How! mon Cher, do
you stoop to pick up such rags as that?"—

Charpentier was about to marry a young
girl at Rouen, daughter of a merchant of
that place. Two weeks ago he asked and
obtained permission to go and see his inten

piest day of his life," &c., and he departed.
But the father of Charpentier, an honest
and assiduous clerk in the banking house of
M. Rothschild, received a letter a few morn

lady in question, who was growing tired of
the delay, and demanded that the delinquent
should be "forwarded by return of post."
