A c!wnteoitsort of woman she was.
With i common sort of way—
Sbo washed her dishes, end swept her stain.
Atid sewed the rest of tho day.
She had children, the foolish, fretful thing,
The nicest over were born, _
That tilled the house with a hum of joy,
Like the song of birds in the morn.
Tho coci i and clatter of childish tengues,
The patter of tiny fed, 1 / 2
The wrestling and coaxing of baby
-0 mother, isn't it sweet?
And does n't it fill the intervals
01 life with a loving din,
Leading us on, with its hurrying hope
From the borders of idle sin?
She had it all, this mother had,
lind she might have been content
With home, and health, and butter and bread
Andloye wherever she went.
She needn't have thought of tho dingy house
Fronting the-shining west, •
For the angel that guarded the souls within,
Had wings as good as the best . •
Wth every feather of snowy white,
And pbbial with the lovingest care,
Forever Darning, forever Intent
On the breath of hei mother prayer
But she crowded him out, ono naughty day,
Out of the farthest door,
As if she never eriie °tad to need
His hoverings any more.
And throngh•tho door the angel went oat,
Came in, with s worldly sir,

The agreeable project of 'a pedes
trian excursion of some'tlays through
the Isle of Man, was nipped, as it
were, in the bud ; or, in other words,
at the end of the first six miles, while
breakfasting at Crosby, a rain storm
came on : but with it came also the
stage coach on its way to Peelfor
tunately, for myself, as trusting in a
continuance of the fine Feather with
which I had so far been favored since
first landing in Ireland, I left Doug
las, armed with cane instead of um
brella. This, be it understood, is
rather at variance with the prevailing
custom in Great Britain, where gen- .
erally little dependence is placed up
on favorable indications of the sky,
even fora day.
The country, generally pleasant
and productive in appearance "along
the route, became more hilly as we
appivached the western coast of the
Island. Two and a half miles from
Peel, on the north side of the high
way, stands one of the most revered
and important monuments of the
past which the Island affords. This
is the circular, terraced . mound,
known as the TYYWALD HILL : being
about 12 feet in height and 80 yards
in circumference, and said to be coto
-pgsed of earth brought hither from
th 3 various sheadings or districts of
the Island. A thousand years • ago,
this was used by the Norwegians,
then masters of the country, for the
holding of courts and the adminis
tration of justice : and to thig day,
the laws of the-Three Estates must be
promulgated here, before they are
considered of binding force. The
Tynwald Court of Man, which can be
convoked only at the will of the
Lieutenant Governor, possesses both
the judicial and legislative power.
It was probably with a view to the
protection of public liberty; that the
Scandinavian optirts,s' (or Things, as
they were called, at which all the'
freemen of the nation had a right to
attend), were thus held in the open
air. In England, Scotland and Ire
land, as well as in the Orkney and
Shetland Islands, similar mounds or
Thing Hills still remain, and also for
merly existed throughout Iceland and
Norway. The Trnmart Mu, in the
Isle of Man, is, however, the only
one now 'retaining its -original Ilse.
It is covered with a beautiful green
sward, and,,as a modern writer -re-
marks in describing it : "The place
is situated in the calm, green bosom
of a lovely vale, walled in on all r sides
at irregular distances by lofty hills
and the view from themount, around
the circumference of -`4ts boundary,
has an air of security "'beauty and.s6-
elusion, thit is extre mely pleasing." .
A short distance east is the Church
of St. John's—a fine edifice- built of
granite, on the site, according to tra
ditikm, of an ancient temple dedicat
ed to Thor.. On the 6th of July (or
Tynsidd day) of each year, the Lisa
tenantr Governor and all -the • high
dignitaries of the Isle, after attend

walk in procession to the Tynwald
Hill, on the summit of which, provid
ed with a canopy and chair, the
Lieutenant Governor is then seated,
(" with visage to the esst, and sword
before him, holden with the point
upward,") - while the chief ofticials,
the Keys and the Clergy occupy the
three terraces below.
The laws,l(or theirtitles), enacted
during the iprevious year are• then
read to the j surrounding multitude.
Such are the preliminaries of the
Tynwald Curt. Its dignity and de
corum were 'enforced with such strict
ness, that according to ancient usage,
"noe Man shall make 'any Disturb,
ance or Stin in the Time of Tinwald,
or any MUrinur or Rising in. the
King's Presence,' upon Pa . *
Hanging and Drawing."
The first laws enacted under the
new Charter of the Island, giving - to
the people the right to elect members
of the " Hotise of. Keys," were thus
promulgated from the Tynwald Hill
ten days before my visit thither. '
Iu full •view from this spot is the
Hill of Slim., over 1,000 feet in
height. Tradition says, that in the
dark days of superstitions, cruelty,
those suspected of Witchcraft were
taken to its summit, and after having
been placed] in a barrel with sharp
iron spikes inserted around the inte
rior, were rolled down the northern
declivity of the mountain.

From time "whereof the mem9ry
of mart rupneth not to the contrarly,"
a certain day known as St. Sti•ithius%
has been considered in England, an
important index to the weather for
some time succeeding : or, according
to the old Rhyme,
" 't. gwitliins' (lay, an thou tot lair,
Poi- Forty days 'twill rain nae niair
. St. Switlnq day, an thou dos:
Fpr forty days it will remain." ,
Aruerican,Almanacs had failed to
inform me s to when St. Swithius'
might be lobked for; it chanced, how
ever, at Peel, on referring to the
heavy rain, the remark was made
that occurring as it did, it was likely
to continue for some time. On en
quirinc, why, I was told that this—.
the 15th day of July, was known as
St. Swithius day. Although subke
(pent- observation did not fully con
firm the idea of for forty days
thereafter, yet it might be said,-, that
it rained enough in the; our days fol
lowing to ans•ver ordinarily for . frry.
On a rocky islet but a little way
from the town, and known as St.
Patrick's, stands the old Ctstle of
Peol—" grand, gloomy and peculiar.",
Its walls,embrace an area of about
5 acres ; their material, as well as
that of he Church of St. Germanus,
built upon the same rock in 1245, is
principally of red sandstone, consid
erably WOrlt, by the-wars of the ele
ments. The furious winds, which
prevail on this " lone, barren isle,"
sometimes dash the -ocean spray to,
the very summit of the towers. 31ucht
of historic interest as well as of wild;
superstition, attaches itself to Peel
Castle : and some of the most
ing scenes of Scott's Pererd of the
Peak, are hero laid. .
We descended down a narrow and
utterly dark passage to, the :dungeon
occupied by Eleanor, •Duchess of
Gloucester, for fourteen years, during
the 15th century. The charge against
her was, that by the arts of 'Magic,
she had plotted against the life of the
king. This was done, (as alleged at
cording to the incredible superstition
of thoSe dais), by her exposing, with
malice and prepense aforethought, a
*amen image of the royal person to a
moderate heat ; that so,- according to
the rules of magic, the king's health
and strength might graduallk, decline
as the image melted ! Her fate is re
ferred to by' Shakspeare in his "Hen
ry V 1.," also in 3liddleton's legend of
Humphrey; Dnke of Gloster, about
Superstitious tales of Giant, ghost
and Fairy are sufficiently abundant
throughout Ithe Isle of Ilan. It would
be unprofitable to devote much time'
or space to them : the-legend of the
3foddey Th u, however as ; ' connected
with Peel Gdstle, has been often al-
lnded to, and I will .give it in few
words :-
An apparition known by the name
of the MOddey Mad (or Black Dog);
formerly haunted Peel Castle. More
frequently than else Where was it Seen
in the Guard Rooni, Occupied by the
soldiers of the garrison ; who at
length becanie accustomed to its . sp.
pearanco there, as it lay down before
the fire at the lighting of candles for
the evening, and disappearing With
the dawn. They however •believed
it an evil sjirit, which only , waited
permission to do them h:lrm, and
they ge4rally forebore any profane
discoursb Whi o it was present, and
no one cared to be leftealono with it.
The passage from the church, thro'
which the Moddey Dial ,was general
ly ,observed to come, being the same
through which it was the duty of
each soldier in his turn to carry the
keys of thel Castle to its coiumander,
after the cibsing of the gates at night,
it was agreed that each, in the per
formance) Of this duty should be ac
companiedjby his successor for the
following night.
It chanced, howeler, on ono occa
sion, thatltho soldier who was to
bear the keys, being':excited by liquor,
persisted in going alone, notwith
standing the earnest ilissuasions of
his companions ; swearing that he
desired nothing more than that the
Moddey Dhu should fiElow him, and
that he wOuld ascertain whether it
were dog 1 or devil. After indulg
ing in further profane 'expressions,
he snatched lip the Castle keys,
and' departed on his errand. Soon
after, a strange noise was heart in
the passage, but none had the cont.-
age to follow their conipanion to as
certain its cause. The adventurer
finally returned : lend and noisy as
IM-had been,, he was now sober and
silent enottg,h. He made no reply to
the earnest inquiries' that were- ail
dressed to trim, and seemed- to .be
suffering tinder, strange, contortions
of featurei and limbs. Nothing in
telligible Could be got from him, and
on the - third day thereafter ".he dial
and gave no sign."
The Moddey Dhu, it is said, was
never afterwards seen in Peel CasU
nor would any ono again - venture
through that passage : it was accord
ingly closed up and another made.
This is said•to haio occurred about
the yeariltiso. And as if the high
born captiie`had not suffered enough
from superstitions injustice during
her life, (whieh terminate 4 in prison
here), the vulgar assertion still pre
veils that the li&ldey Dhn was nei

encountered, to the opposite pier.

such a manner that even in that faint'

I opened the door and closed it
with 4 bang, as, if . I would, cut off
that disagreeable gaze' between the
door's edge and the jamb.

To' underst4 the. philosophy •of

very existence of plants, and animals,
a few facts, dZirived . from observation
and a long train' of expetiments,mtist
be r.emembered:', • . • .
W=ere the atmosphere everywhere,
at all times,at'a uniform temperature,
we , should never_ have rain, hail, or
snow. The water absorbed by it in
evaporation from the *;ea andearth's
surface would-descend "in an imper
ceptible vapor or' cease to be absorb
ed by Elie air when it,Avas once fully.
saturated. The. abgerhing power of
the atmosphere, 'ancreousequently its
capability to retain humidity', is pre
portionablygreater in
,cold than warm
air. The air, near . • the.surface of the
earth is warmer than it isin the 're
on of the clouds. The higher we
ascend from-the earth, the colder We
tind the atmosphere.- Hence the per
petual snow on high mountains in
the hottest climates.
Now,., when frolu evaporatitaa "the
air is highly, saturated with vapor,
though_ it be invisible;-if its tempera
ture is suddenly reduced by cold cur
rents descending from aboye,or..ritsh
ing from a higher to a lower latitiide,
its capacity to retain jmoisturo di
minished, clouds are forreed,.and the
result is 'rain. Air condenses as it
cools, and - like a sponge filled with
water and compreSsed, pours out wa
ter whieli . its diminished capacity
cannot hold. How singular yet how
simple is such .aU arrangement for
watering the .earth. .
