The Man that get ihnstbagged.
The stage in which I was a passenger had stop
ped to change horses and " feed" the passengers, at
a small town in Vermont, and dinner over, we were
awaiting the arrival of a stage upon an intersecting
mute, to proceed Upon our journey. Cigars had
been lighted, and, by way of passing our time, we
had commenced a critical examination of the mem
oth pictorial posters of Bamom'a Menageries, which
covered the walls of the spacious bar-room. Bar
atirml opened a fruitful topic of conversation;
every one present seemed stored with anecdotes of
the " Napoleon of Showmen," itnd the Woolley
Horse, the Feejee Mermaid, and Joice Heth, were
not forgotten in the discussion which followed.
Soddenly a long, slab-sided individual, with an
owl-like expression of wisdom and dignity, who
hail been listening to our remarks with an evident
desire to take a hand, broke out—

von Muller., for instance, who loved her dearly, and
washeloved in return and whom I drove from the
house. Scarcely had he made this avowal when
the clock-case again opened and the stranger, step

daughter, 0 man of ambitious views, were now
'married to Cad von Muller, would you give her
your blessing I" "1l world ! I would !" exclaim
ed the old man, sobbing. " Then," exclaimed the
apparation, " come forth ye happy pair!". At
these words the door of the loom opened, and Carl
von Muller and his lovely bride entered, approach
ed the master of the house and knelt at his feet
" Now," said the stranger, " let me turn this gloom
into merriment. My name is Mendelsshon, the
composer: . I. have just returned from Italy ; I am
the bosom friend of Carl von Muler ; that clock

(the choristers who always set it rieht at twelve at
night, from superstitious feeling, playing a variety
of (ricks with it by day ; and have been the means
of doing an act of friendship and justice, for now
it behoves us solely to be joyous—a merrier time
was never spent in the town of Ilerringbausen.
The Lest Gem.
The black craters of the river of death t"ere
ing slug.gishly onwari. There approached one
whose teatures bore traces of anxiety and sorrow,
and with a bowed form she gazed into the turbulent
stream as though she would fain descry something
tar gown in its fathomless depths. A being of be
nign and celestial aspect appeared at her side, and
said :
" What seekest thou, sorrowing one 7"
" Alas r , she answered, "I wore a sparkling
jewel upon my bosom. It was no paltry bauble,
but a monarch - 5 gift, and invaloable. The wealth
of India can not yield one to match it. In an evil
hour it dropped from its resting in this dark river.
For a moment I saw it float near the brink, and
stretched out my hand to regain it ; but it was be
yond my reach, and it sank down flit I saw it no
more. It is'prie—lost, I°sll4:never!'" And in deep
gloom she turned to depart.
" Stay mourner ! Grieve not, bat look again into
the raters Fi
She looked, and a cry of joy brut from her lips—
"lt is there! I see it flowing upon the dremal
wave. Oh shall it not be c mine once more !"
The answer tame—" Nay, but thou art deceived.
What thou seest is but the semblance of what was
thine. Yet turn thy eyes upward and rejoice."
She obeyed and beheld a star Gleaming from a
bright spat of azure in the murky sky, whose rays
i gave even the waves of that gloomy river a tinge
of br:ghtness, and whose reflection there she hart

Then came a tender and musical voice as the
beautiful appearance vanished —" Blonmer, these
restless billows, th h, fearful and dark to thee, roll
up to the gate of Heaven. Ever faithful to their
mist, they bore the jewel—which was lent rot g:r

Heaven ; and, transferred to His care it will shine
forever in His glorious resting. place."
The mourner departed with a countenance
thoughtful, ye: cheerful her gaze no ',anger bent
upon earth or the river ct Leath, but as meekly
and trustingly raised to Heaven.

By the time we were approaching the most 'els
rated point of
,central Alia, a Wail& wind had sal
in from the netth, which lasted fifteen dare, and in
creased the rigor of the cold to a degree that threa
tened us with meat misfortunes. The sky was still
clear, hit the cold wager? terrihle that even acalt;3-
day the influence of the son wee scarcely percepti . -
te. Even during the day,,and of coonse still more
during the night mower,' under the continued ap
prehension of being frozen to death. I m,ay men ;
tion one circumstance that will give an idea of the
extrettity of the cold. Every morning before setting
off ; the caravan lased to take a meal, and then not
again until they encamped : but as the Tramba
was a kind of food so little agreeable that It
difficult tto tate enough of it at once to support us
dining the day, we used totsoak in tea two or three
balls of it to keep in reserve for the day's inamey
We wrapped op this boiling part in very warm Sri
en, and placed it on our breast : and over this we
had our clothing, namely a garment of sheepskin
and Alien a short garment of fox's skin, and over
all a great woken coat. Now daring this fortnight
we constantly found theballs of Tramba frozen, and
when we drew them from cur bosoms they were
so hard that we almost broke oar teeth in attempt
ing to eat them. The cattle suffered greatly, ecpe:.
chilly the mutes and horses, which are not so woof:
as the oxen. We had to dress them in carpets and
and tie camel's skin round their bea ts . ; and in
any other circumstances their appearance would
certainly hare excited our hilarity, but now we
were in no humor for laughing. ; for notwi - hstandine,
all precautions the mule of the caravan were deci
mated by death.
The numerous !rozen ricers that we had to pass
occasioned us much trouble, especially the camels,
whit b are so awk ward that we were ob:ii.ted 113 braL4
a path for them by strewing sand on the ice, even
then we had to lead them very carefully, one after
the other ; and if one of them chanced to make a
false step and fall. it was scarcely possible to get it
tip again. First we had to relieve them of their
baggage. and then to drag them on their sides to
the river bank, or spread ca:pets‘for them, arid tog
at them with all their might but very often to nd
pu.-pose ; they would not make the slightest effort
to rise, and they had at last to be abandoned for it

waiting on the whims of a camel All these hard- .
ships threw many of the travelers into deep dejact;t
ion. To the mortality of the animals, was now
adds.d that of men, whom the cold seized and who
were left to perish on the road. One day, when the
exhaustion of our beasts of burden bad compelled
CR to slacken our maneb, we perceived a traveler
seated by the way side, on a large stone. His head
was bent down, his arms pressed against his sides,
and he remained motionless as a statue. We call
! him several times but fie made no answer, and we
thought he had not head us What madness, we

him again : bat as he still did not answer, we al- .

pearance of wax, hise3 es were half open and gin
