ceiel remonstrated in her tneWciaticei,
'that she had seven japliths, or suits,
on ; another tale vise to the effect
that, "in the Nabob_ Allaverdy, lilk.
wan's time, a weaver was "chastised
and turned out of the ',city of.Dacee
for his neglect in not preventing. his
cow from, eating up .a. piece of %bro•
van,' which lie had spread and left
upon the, grass," the muslin,of course,
being so fine that the animal could
not See it k u i pon the herbage.
So 'deli ate is the manufacture of
the short' taple of the Dacca cotton,
that it can only be woven into yarn
at certain times of the day. The
morning is generally so empioyedbe,
fore the dew has left the grass ;- it
spipning is carried on after that time,
the spinner, who is alwnii a woman
under thirty years of age, spins the
yarn over a pan of water, the evapo
ration of which affords sufficient mois
ture to prevent the fibres from becom
ing to brittle to handle. Delicate as
toe muslin . 'is, it will sash, which
European muffins will not. The dura
bility of the Dacca muslin,' notwith
standing its surprising fineness, a
piece of "evening dew," one yard
wide and four.yards long,only weigh
ing 550 grains—is said to be owing ,
to the greater number of twistagiven
to the Dacca.*arii, .as compared with '
the' finest muslin yarns of England or
France. The time taken to spin and
weave the threads in a piece of "wo
ven air" is very great ; the reader ,
will not, therefore, be surprised to
hear that it sells at the rate of a guinea
a yard. I '
The "Abroven," or "Bunning Wa
ler," is considered the sec o nd claim of
muslin . ; -_ 4 Sabaum," or "Evening
Dew," is the third quality ? It is so
called because it is so fine that it can
scarcely be - distiriguishedi from dew
upon the' grips.\ There are several
other very fine_ Dacca mans that
are known by distinctive names, but
the, three so 'poetically designatea are
the most famone. The Daghdhobees,
who remove iron mould from this pre,
clone material, use the juice of the
amroold piant fors that purpose ; and
to remove- other 'spots ' or stains, a
Hine composition of ghel, hint! and mineral
alkali. There are Mahomedans who
also repair, this . "woven sir" with a
skill equal to that of the Hindooitati
who weaves it. For instance, it is
said that an expert banger, or dar
ner, "can extract a thread twenty
yards.long feint' a piece of the ,finest
muslin of the same dimensions ; and'
replace it' with one of the finest qual
ity." It is said that they execute their
finest work under the influence of
opium. .
- A still more exquisite and expen
sive mirk of the Indian loom is the
figured inuelin. ' A piece of this fab
ric, measuring twenty yards, made
in 1716, cost as much as £56. The
splend* yet subdued effect of Weav
ing gol and silver threads into the
differe fabrics - made in India has
never ever been approached by Euro
peans. ' Some of their silks have a
sheen upon them like the break of a
pigeon, or indeed of the' Impeyan
pheasant. In nature .we neVer find
that even the most splendid effects
offend the eye by appearing harsh,—
The Indian artist seems to bade

Tai " Duck Dg an."—The horrors
of the Black Death, which swept all
Europe . * its - terrible coerse, are five
centuries old - and exist onlyinlegen
dal history and tradition. The"
Plague came somewhat nearer lone
day and left a more definite record of
itself. But it is a long time since the
Western nations have been smitten
by the - Scourge of. God with the se
verity of farmer 'daye. The cholera',
has been regular in v ite visitation,bnt
its - ravages have ben comparatively
light. Itappears, however, that a
strange and terrib ly fatal disease ex.
iits in Ireland, and has exiited there
for some io seventeen months, which
has is s •thng similarity to th at .King
of Plagues, the Black Death. - The
peculiar distinction of this unknoWn
malady,.which in, other respects re
sembles a, wonderfully' active fever,
consists in the appearance of purple
spots Upon the body of the patient,'
which spread over his. person and
crease in depth lof color until death.
The rapidity with which the disease
progresses to a fatal. conclusion is
remarkable, in , some instances not
more than four hours elapsing be-,
tween the 'attack-and the death of the
patient. In other 'eases the patient
has lingered for several days and in
a leas violent phase of the malady a
eickness‘ of several weeks has been
followed by recovery. The avon4e
is abOut eightewrhours from the first
indications of illness. In sonic cases
the patients. preserved their' senses
up to :the very hour of collapse.; oth
ers became incoherent, and ~others
died in the greatest agony. Theldis•
ease is plainiy contagions. ; A-sol
-Ali3r, engaged 'm the Fenian insurrec
tion, die 4 of the disease, and shortly
after his iwasherwari And her chil
dren were prostrattd,. with the same
malady. Its nature is unknown, and
its remedy of course impossible to
be found. Meanwhile the death,rata
in Dublin-is steadily and rapidly in
creasing from, this rnyeterious Qom
plaint: In some respects the symp
tomtof this' disease are similar to
those which attended the - " spotied
fever," so preialent in certain keep
