on the. 2311 of.inne. Since that time I have been a
bout as low as any one could be and still retain a spark
of vitality. For a week or more I was scarcely able to
wallow anything, and if I did form a morsei,down, it
was immediately thrown up again.
I could not even keep a glass of water on my stom

up all idea of "exhibiting" that night, 1
we left. the hotel for the scene of

of the harbor and the, surroundings
of this City, and the magnificence of
The 'harbor - I,s certainly - net inferior
to any in' the World the beauty - and

and, indeed 'Many, think' it Surpasses

As .I gazed, the harbor looked- calm.
and still as an inland sea, whichhad
never felt ebb orlow of tide ;tags of
every-nation fluttered: in the breeze,
and, as the sun descended towards'
the horizon, the big city, lay, bathed
in a sea - of geld, and tbe,gleries of the

gorgeous crimson pictures,- on the
western sky. .
The Ghauts mountains, richly.

gilded atmosphere their: castellated;

had-reared their fortresses. .
The nearer landscape,

graceful palm ; the hoary banyan
tree that' counts centuries ns years ;
the stately nym,L with leaves that
whisper to the wind birds with , th'e•
most brilliant plumage flitted about;
the Cooling, gentiv, rippling, waves of

broken murmurs the yellow beach,

THE WISE EMBASSADOR.
We. remember reading in an old
French Magazine, accounts -of an enx
bassador from' b e court of the Emper
or Charlemagne, -, - to that of an East
ern Monarch. - pining one day in
emnpany with'the barbarian king krill the great men of the court, not knoW
ing the regulations and the etiquette
of the east, the Enabassdor, without
dreaming of harm moved with his
hand 'a dish -which had been phiced
near him onthe table. Now the
laws of the' tyrant required that' if
any guest to - tic - bed- a' dish that was
brought forward, 'before- the king
himself - was serVed, he shoUld suffer
the penalty of . ..death, consequently,
all eyes were tffned. upon the embas
sador of Charlemagne, and there was
an imniediate outcry against him, for
the courtiers of the tyrant thou-v . IA to
gain his favor by upholding him in
his. tyranny. The barbarian king
feared to displease so:great an em
peror as'Charlemagne, he . feared
to transgressis own laws more, :and
he told the embassador' that he Twist
suffer death for what he had done.
'Great king' said the Frank; "I sub

with impunity without a mur.

"Theft speak.est - well,'' replied the
barbarian'lzing. "It's not my will that
thou shouldst suffer death, but since,
the laws require it,'rgive thee the

that whatever "thou' asketh, shall 'e

embassador proudly ; and he glanced
