James Moreen was born
,in the north ofi
Ireland, in etneof those miserable districts!
where hunger and nakedness ' scent the I
only inheritance of the children of the soil 1
where the priest and the landlord step in
co divide that which should be the reward ,
of honest industry ;• and thoSe who have
earned their bread by the sweat of their
hrows, are left to perish for want., The
home .Of his childhood was a hovel—;
a miserable hovel without a floor--the cra
zy, ruinous walla, and the mouldering roof
of thatch, were frail protection against the
winter winds and summer rains; nudyct,
with all its squalid' poverty, he loved it,
for hive was there—a blessing biiejiti cribs
denied the palace. His mother :had been '
fair in girlhood—very fair—and . , though
the bloom had forsaken her cheek la foie
James could remember her, there was still
a melting tenderness itMwr soft, blue 'eye,
and a loving smite on her, i ip, which seem-. illumine the naked, dripping walls,)
'when the wintry
. ttorms, beat in upon them. ;
And there'were days of summer sunshine',
—blessings indeed to the• poor—when the I
wreathing vine, with . a rich canopy of
leaves and flowers hid the rough exterior
of the cottage, and the wild flowers grew
about the door, sweet and beautiful as if
planted in a palace garden. Thank Heav
en ! there-n re. soinc things which the rich
and proud cannot monopolize: The great.;
est blessings' which God confers'on man,
he has made universal and unalienable.—:
The poorest .wretch Who walks the earth
may look up to , the fair bluo sky above;
himiand to the glorious-garniture of suos
'and systems which adorn it, and ifirink in
the mystery. and. beauty of the scene, as
freely as the monarch ou his throne. The
zephyr will fan his check as softly,and
the floV..ers, earth's fairest andisweetest ad
orning, will unfold their petals bdneuth his
eye, and pour their fragraace, ,as gently
around him. . . ~ .
Such was the home id
t which James
Niemen grew up to inenhood:' . Though
fortune 'lied been 'nigaardtv, nature Was
prodigal in her gifts to him, and u rnany a
purse proud aristocrat would have.gladly
excharigeci his gold for the. manly form
and handsome face of the poor peasant.

A Hotel Eeene.
fly 11. KOSIIdOT.
IL was at one of the extensive hostelries
which are to be "tied up to" in most of,
the largo. towns in the interior of New
York, that the following scene actually !
occurred, as can-be proved by a cloud of
witnesses who. have heard the landlord tell
the story.
The hotel referred to was, on the occa
sion of which we are speaking, rather full.
and the nephew of the landlord lay sick
in one of the rooms on the third floor.—
fie .was to receive medicine during the
night from the hands of a person who had
been procured to "watch" with him. The
landlord had instructed the aforesaid watch
;er to administer a portion of some little
physic to the patient at 12 o'clock ; the
dose to be repeated at certain hours of the
"He is very techy," said the landlord, I
''and you had better keep out of his room
until you go up to give hin►> the medicine."
"Oh, for that matter," riiplied the watch
er, who was a novice in the vocation, "1
prefer to sit here ;" and he eyed me sofa
which was in the apartment, is suspicious
"Well," said the landlord, "vou won't
forget tic number of the room?'
"No, sir." •
"And tell him he must take the 'medi
cine without making such a confounded
fuss as he made with the last dose. Tell
him I say hc must take it—it's good for
- .
"Yes, sir."
"Good night."
"Good night."
Boldface retired, and the watcher depos
ited himself on the sofa, from which he
was roused by his own snoring, at a quar
ter before, one. In dismay, and confused,
he seized the potion, and hurried up stairs.
The sick man was lodged in No. 52,
but the nurse, in his haste, mistook No.
33 for it, and entering the latter, he saw a
person lying in the bed, face upward, with
his mouth w ide open, respiring with that
peculiar gurgle in the throat which indi
cates strong lungs and a plethoric habit.
"Ali I" mentally exclaimed the astute
watcher, "he makes a fuss about taking
nibdicine, does he blowed, though,
it he don't take one dose quietly—before
he wakes up, in fact."
The idea of giving a potion of bitter
physic-to a somnolent patient is sufficient
ly ridiculous ; but when we consider that
the watcher bud went into the wrong room,
and was about to administer it to the
wrong man,•the aflhir becomes still more
Our friend the watcher, acted promptly,
and having filled the bowl of a large spoon
with the nauseating mixture, ho forced it
down the throat of a sleeping traveller,
who happened to be a healthy Hibernian
who had never tasted physic before in his
life. The Irishman struggled and bit the
spoon severely, but tno watcher plunged
it still deeper in his throat, saying, as he
did so—
"Oh, but you must take it—the land
lord says you must."
The 'lastly dose went down, but when
Patrick recovered his breath and began to
pour fourth his objurgations in his own pe
culiar rhetoric; the watcher discovered that
he had committed an egregious blunder,
and seizing his light, fled from the room.
The astonished and enraged traveller
sprang fican his bed, and was soon heard
rushing about in search of landlord, swea
ring vengeance against him, and all con
nected with his house. On he came, tear
ing through the passages, banging the
doors; and roaring•like a grizzly bear.

One of the most thrilling calamities that
ever occurred on sea or and, took place
oil the coast of England on the 4th 9 iJan•
uary, by the burning of the Steamer Am
azon, on her outward voyage to the \Vest
Indies, when about sixty miles west of the
island of Scilly. The particulars of this
sad casualty are briefly these :
The Amazon was a pioneer of a new
line of steamers recently projected between
Southampton and the Isthmus of Panama,
intended to convey the English mails from
port to port, and also to touch at the Is
land of St. Thomas on the trip both ways.
She was built in a most superb manner,
with capacious accommodations, and ma•
chincry designed to enable her to make
the,yoyage in eighteen days, instead of
consuming twenty-five days the ordinary
running time of the old English mail stea
mers now on that line.
The Amazon was pronbunced ready for
sea during the last month, and cut the 2d
of January, she cleared 'Southampton for
her destinatiOn. She carried with her 50
passengers, i:20,300 sterling its specie,a nd
500 bottles of quicksilver, valued at
150. Besides other cargo, she had in her
hold 1,133 tons of coal, which had been
put on board for the purpose of being de.
li\rered for future use, at her contempla
ted coal stations. She was commanded
by Capt. Symonds ; and at 3 o'clock on
Friday, the day heretofore named. she
started on her unhappy voyage, amid the
cheers of assembled thousands, who had
been attracted to the wharves to witness
her departure.
The entire number of persons entered
on the vessel's book was 101. Every
thing passed off pleasantly and without ac
cident, until about one o'clock the follow
ing Sunday, when to the horror of those
on board, the steamer was found to be on
fire. Scilly was within sixty miles to the
west, but our accounts do 'not mention
that any attempts were made to reach the
The fury of the element devoured evcry
thing before it, ami involved in the com•
mon ruin the lives of 115, out of the ag•
gregate of 161 who composed her crew
and passenger list. Those who escaped,
had floated at the mercy of the waves, in
open boats, for twelve hours, enosed
the inclemency of the season, cud had
well nigh perished by a death hardly le'ss
horrible. Twenty-one were picked up by
un English vessel, and twenty : five reach
ed the coast of France.
