Two tnen—one industrious, the
other lazy—went one morning to
gether into the country. Suddenly
they saw before them a splendid cas
tle, built on the side of a mountain, a
long way off; it glistened in the sun,
so that it was a pleasure to look at it.
"Let us go there," the industrious
"I wish we were there already,"
the lazy one remarked.
"You can do so this day," a clear
voice was saying behind them, "for
you are a couple Of active young fel
On looking round to see whence
the voice came they perceived a
handsome lady, standing on a. globe,
which rolled rapidly p,aet them in the
direction of the castle. ,
"She is well off," said Lazy; "she
does not need to stir a step, and yet
moves onward," and with these
words he sat down on the grass. In
dustrious, however, lost no time in
reflection ; he rose after the lady,
caught, hold of her wide mantle, and
said, "Who art thou ?"
"I am Fortune," the - lady replied,
"and that castle is mine. Follow me!
and if you arrive there before -mid
night, I will receive you kindly_; but
if you arrive may - aiseutmd -- aftvr - mitt --,
night, my house will be closed against
With these words she drew her
eloakirom the young man's grasp,
and rolled along at such speed that'
she was soon lost to sight. Indus
trious returned to his: comrade, told
him what had happened, and said, "1
am off.—Will you come with me ?"
The other replied, "What! are you
mad Yes, I would, if I - had a horse
to carry me."
"Good by 1" his friend said, and
commenced his journey.
Lazy thought to himself, "Walk
away old boy ; chance is often favor
able to a man in his sleep, on his
babk," and looked, t hough
wistfully, at the glittering castle.
All at once he felt something snuff
ling round his ear, and on slowly turn
ing round he saw a splendid , white
horse shaking its mane and neighing
with delight as it inhaled the fresh
. "Did 1 not. say so ?" the man
thought; there is nothing like trusty
log to , luck. Come here, my horse,
we will be good friends."
With these words he leaped into
the saddle, the horse shot off like the
wind. Ile'soon caught up with his
companion, whom he laughed at for
using shank's mare. But Industrious
would not let himself be put out, but
walked actively and surely along his
road. On a woody eminence, the
horse came to a sudden halt at mid
day. "That is right," his rider said,
"you are a sensible animal. Slow
and sure—that is true wisdom. The
castle won't run away from us, but
our appetite may if we go too long
Then he dismounted, looked out a
soft, shady spot near a stone, lay
down on the moss, stemmed his feet
against a tree, and enjoyed his dinner;
for fortunately he had sausage in his
pocket and a draught left in his wick
er bottle. And when his stomach
was full; and sleep-overcame him at
full length, he fell off to sleep.
What a sleep it was ! he had never
had such beautiful dreams!_ he fan
cied that he was already in the cas
tle, reclining on silken pillows, and
everything he wished for was brought
him witlout his having occasion to
move a finger. .At last he fancied a
band was playing a well-known air—
and on that he woke up.
He rubbed his eyes, and saw that
the sun was fast sinking behind the
castle, and threw its parting beams
in his face. But upon the valley be
fore him echoed the void° of his com
rade, who was singing the tune which
bad just sounded in his ears. "Good
ness ! gracious I" Lazy said, "it is
time to be starting. But where's my
horse ?" ' Not a horse was to be 'seen for
miles around, but an old gray donkey
was grazing on the side of the hill.—
He shouted, he enticed, he whistled,
but it was of no use, the horse stray
ed away, and the donkey would, not
come. So he was at last obliged to
walk to the , Vonkey and mount it.
The, donkey made no objection, bat
trotted on with him, though of course
Lazy did not like it so well as the
horse which had' one so quickly, and
had been far more agreeable to ride.
It soon begat to grow dark, and
heavy clouds collected. The lights
too, were flaming in the
could be clearly seen. Then Lazy's
troubles began. "- The donkey crawled
on more slowly ',than ever, and all at
ono came to nr'ilead bait in the midst
of a'pitoby darkfOrest. No kindness
no patting, no. t fugging at the rein
availed; and Willol2 the donkey's mas

animal made a. tbort job .o'f it; head

had 'thought better if it in-the inter- ,

hour he wandered among the' trees;
here his head ran: -'against' 'a stump,

or he stumbled over roots-and stones
but the very thing `he' could not , find
was the donkey; '-' Still he could pot
think of lying doWn again,. for every
now, and 'then a' howling :echoed
through- the forest, as W of hungry,
At once he stumbled on something
soft; it was not. his. donkey, still he
felt something like's saddle; He was
just going to swing himself 'into it,
when he noticed ' . `that, he was going
to mount acold, clammy animal.—
He shuddered, but at this, moment a
clock struck in the 'distance. It was
high time to be off; he could reach
the castle•iwan hofir,_ so he leaped
into the saddle.
It was not at all, ft bad seat, for it
was very soft, and at the back was a
tall support: The, new ranimal also
moved, very surely, tho'ngh even
slower than the lait. 13titfor all that
he dragged gradually nearer the cas
tle, and was enabled to count the -il
luminated windows, when the.moon
emerged from the clouds and shone
down brightly upon him.
Oh, wonder ! what did besee then!
The animal on which he -was riding
was neither horse mor• donkey, but a
gigantic snail, as large as a calf, and its
shell kad served aia. suppOrt- to -his
back. It was only natural that it
An icy shudder came over him, but
it was of no use after all; he was
only too glad to reach his journey's
end in any way. At this moment
the distant clock struck the first
stroke of twelvoS, which announced
with long intervals the midnight
hour. At . tbe same moment the snail
emerged from the forest, and the
splendid faiiy-like palace of Fortune
was close hefore him. Hitherto, La
zy had not moved a limb, but now he
pressed his heels into the soft clam
my sides of his steed. Not being
used to such treatment it drew back
into its shell, and let its rider slide
down on the ground.
The clock sounded the second
stroke I—liad Lazy but trusted to
his feet he might have reached his
destination: ere the last sound had,
died away. But-no.; he stood there
and exclaimed, in a pitiful voice; "An

The clock sounded the third stroke;

his side, which looked_ in . the obscur.
ity like a horse arrayed in armor,
and it stood by 14 side. "Thatmust
be my horse.," Lazy shouted ; "it has
been sent me at the right moment I"
As quickly as he could he sprang on
the animal's back ; he, had only a
small hill yet to surmount, he could
see the castle gates still open, and in

'WOLVES IN BEIGE,.
A STORY OP THEM
When I was a very little boy, I
was exceedingly partial :to stories.
about wolves. "Now, mamma, : a
story?" was the coaxing request as ,
we drew round the winter fire. "4 ,
story: well; let, me see,- what shall it'
be about ? What was it_abeut last
night—oh, wolves,- was it not ?--
What shall tell you about this,

most the invariable- answer. Wolves ;
and shipwreers, shipwrecks t end
Wolves, of, these two, , stihjeats

for many years of Iny.earlyAife ;And ,

extraordinary stories may - be told,
and nothing thatis told of them will
astonish those who have had much
opportunity of observing their habits.
In India no, one concerns. himself
very much, about . wolVes. There is
a reward for killing them, which va

In the-central provinces-I think the.
reward is five rupees, the reward, for
a tiger being one hundred rupees—it
was only fifty, but has been,recently
raised. the Allababad" district
the reward for a wolf is three rupees,
for a tiger twenty-five. There are
very few tigers in, this distriv.t. The
wolves are tolerably numerous , in
some parts of the Zillah,.but I do not,
hear of their doing much serious mis

About Chunar, the government re

Benares allows his woodmen to kill

reserves these beasts for his own

during the hot weather, when the
natives sleep Mit of doors, many chil

wolves were destroyed at that time.
They used to seize the children as
they slept by their mother's sides,
and dash off with them into the hill
where it was impossible to follow
them at night. Near this place I
was once in camp, under the Lanita

stout cord to a, tent peg- Close to

at dusk. During the last two sea

sixty miles north of jubbulpopr, near
Moorwarra, on the Deccan road. I
am afraid to say how many children,
Women,- and even men save been
killed within ten miles of ' this place
during the last twelve months. Mr.
Olpherts, the resident engineer, who
lives at Moorwarrg, tells me that he
has heard of upwards of twenty-five
deaths from: wolves -alone. They go
about singly. or in pairs, not in packs.
Their mode of attack will be best il
lustrated by one or two instances
which have dome under our immedi
ate notice.. In the month of Septem
ber last, some coolies, men and wo
men, were at 'work breaking up
stones ' abOut three hundred yards
from Mr. Olphert's house. Word
was brought to that gentleman that
a wolf had just killed a man and
partly eaten bim. Upon proceeding
to the spot, it appeared that one of
the men had ieft his gang and retir
ed to a slight hollow in the ground,
about fifty yards from where the
work was in progress. Thee wolf
bad probably been watching the peo
ple for some time, and on seeing this
man leave the gang had stopped
him, and seized him by the throat:
The man could not cry out, and - he
must have struggled a good deal.--
At all events the wolf killed him, and
'devoured the flesh of both thighs
and the lower part of the stomach.—
When the coolies became, aware of
the wolfs proceedings they rushed
up, pelted him with stone, and shout
ed. The wolf showed his teeth and
continued his horrid meal. ' When he
had satisfied his hunger. he cantered
off; and then, not till then, did' the
stupid coolies run up to call the sahib.
The wolf had gone into' some, low
scrub jangle, which was beaten at
once : but he slipped- away without
offering a chance of a shot at him.—
Shortly afterwards a well grown
coolie woman was killed in the imme
Eventually Mr. 0 Ipherts has suc

She was, however, rescued before the

the wolves now will not touch sheep
or,goats, but live on uman beings.

they -f were, two , wolves 'lying down
in an open, patch of the shrub. We
went on a little sway so as, to escape
notice, and then dismounted from the
elephant, we walked- towards the
spot where we had seen -the crea
tures, each of us, with a double rifle
and about fifty yards apart. I. saw
the wolveS before.they saw me. The
large one was sitting down as a dog
would -do when gnawing a bone,
facing the ,breeze ; the smaller wolf
was about ten paces behind the-larger
one, in the same attitude. They.
were' in the direct tract of the cattle
and goats going to and fro to the
pasture grounds, and quite ready to
seize any single person who' might
come unexpectedly upon them. The
larger wolf saw my friend ; and he
was alone, the beast crouched down
flat; pressing its snout between its
paws, and watching him most care
fully. The, other.wolf saw me ;. and
finding that, as I sat, I should proba

caught, it quietly got up and hid be

He asked the woman to pass over to

The papers of Friday announce that Simon
Cameron, of Dauphin county, was serenaded by
his friends on the preceding evening; at the Gi
rard Rouse in this city, and availed ..himself of
the oceetion to vilify • my colleagues and my
self, "the Congressmen of. Philadelphia," in a
speech to the assemblage.
- I was but a youth when I first heard the name
of Simon Cameron, and-it was as the perpetrator
of a great crime. ile had been made the , agent
of the 'Government to earry a large ,amount, due
them,.to the Winnebago Indians, and had taken
advantage of their ignorance and helplessness
to eerie& himself. Those of you who bad then
attained to manhood, though you may not, after
the lapse of so:Many years, revive the burning
indignation with which you regarded the infa
mous swindler of the poor Indians, will doubt
less remember that instead of paying them the
specie which the Governinent confided to him
for that purpose, he retained it and gave them
the notes of the Middletciwn Bank, of which he
was an owner. "At their encampment in the re
mote Wilderness these notes were utterly worth
less. The - Indians could not'use thitm for any
nor carry them to Middletown for
redemption. But what was that to Simon Ca
meron ?' Waenet their loss his gain, and was he
not so mach , the richer by every note that failed
to cone home tbr redemption, though they did
suffer-and' starve ? Arid those 'of you who are
not old enough it remember all this, now know
why this bold,'-badman it sometimes spoken of
by your seniors as the "great Winnebago," and
sometimes as KickapoO."
For more than - thirty years I have watched
the tortuous career of this man, and 'have never
seen a reason to abandon my first impression of
his character. Whether acting with the Demo
tirade; the Know Nothing, or the Republican
party—for he - has In turn disgraced them lat—
he has never been false to his criminal instincts.
He has endeavored to tarn them all to profitable
account. His ambition is sordid and panders
to: his avarice, and:he -measures honors by the
perquisites they expose to his grasp. He has
no confidence in the people, and is aware that
they distrust him. • His.speeoh of Thursday eve
ning was not characteristic of him, for he is
prone to the use of instraniente. His habit is
to point the stiletto, but to employ another
band to drive it home. Though an active 'par
ticipant in the politics of his country and State
for more than half a century, during-which long
period he has pursued the profits of office, of
jobs, of contracts, with eager and ceaseless ascii,.
duity, he has never dared to permit his name to :
be presented to the people of his county or
State as a candidate for an elective office. He
crawls to the feet of the appointing power. He
cares not who may be King, so that he may 'still
be Vicar of Bray ; and to that end he chaffers
with and corrupts weak and 'needy members of
Conventions and the Legislature of both par
I need net recite the disgraceful facts attend
ing his several canvasses for the United States
Senate. Their nauseous odor lingers inyournos
trils to this hour. In - the first he bought the
votes of three Democratic members, and in the
last bid twenty thousand dollars for the one
vote which would have elected him. This last
transaction was-so flagrant that the Legislature
was compelled to take cognizance of it, and, if
justice be not lame as' well as blind, the law and
honor of our State will yet be vindicated.
The evil report of hie deeds pervades , the coun
try as a reproach to our State. Yes, unhappily
for Pennsylvania and her great - interests, the
buzzard-winged fame of Simon Cameron is na
tional. By months of abject -solicitation-and
corrupt bargaining he procures a mass of letters,
certificates and recantations, that imposed him
upon President Lincoln as the representative
man of the Keystone State. That was an evil
hour for Pennsylvania. You all remember how
he organized the Navy Agency 4n this city, and
feel the ineffable reproach he thus brought on
our Navy Yard and commercial and -other bud.

ill-judged harangue he „aid . ; "In the olden

Station at League Island) without a dissenting

As I have said, he begged and bargained for
the influence which induced Mr. Lincoln to in

fondly hoped, by those who had not sounded
the depths of his depravity, that, "being old and

honest,- and_ could -administer a trust Without
turning-it to his own profit, or handing the fund
over to his creatures, to be used on joint account.
How sadly these hopee were disappointed is at
tested by the brevity of -his - term of office, and
the circumstances under which it dosed.
In less than one year from the day on which
Simon Cameron was installed as Secretary of
War, Congress—though at that early day it had .
