I bad boon sojourning in Paris for
vonio time, and bocamo anxious for
new sights and scooos, so I took
passage on a small vessel at Havre
bound for a pleasure excursion in
the Mediterranean. This vessel wus
English built, being iu fact one of
tho lurgost class of pleasure yachts

Coming over to Havre he left bor in
charge of the captain and repaired
to Paris, whore he plunged into ev
ery spocios of dissipation. Before
many weeks had elapnod ho full iuto
tlto hands of several of his country
lueu, who were profobsiooally gam
biers and blacklegs, although their
real character was distinguished by
the most fastidious dross and the
most scrupulous doportmont. From
this point the story of Lord 0 is
that of hundreds of others. The
cooapiracy that these shirks formed
to pluudor him was perfectly suc
cessful, aad he lost more at the gam
ing table than bis estate would yield
for a whole lift time.
Mad with his ill fortnne, as he nn
suspoctedly thought it, he offered to
put up the 'Bello' against five thou
sand pounds. It was doue, and be
lost it would have been impossible
for bim to win Toasing off a tum
bler of raw brandy be rushed from
tho place and was not seen again for
two days, wbon bis body was found
among the drowned at the Morne.
Tho scoundrels who now oned
the yacht wore glad to get rid of her
before the affair became too public,
and therefore offered her for sale at
two thousand pounds- I had seen
the vessel at Havre and taken a great
fancy to her, and knowing that sbo
was riobly worth five times the sum
demanded. I conceived a plan of for-
mioff a ioint stock company of two
of the wealthy Americans then so
journing in Paris, and purchasing
ber, particularly with the view of
making a pleasure excursion io the
Mediterranean. The project work
ed to a charm t the shires were
quickly takon. and tbe not owners
of tbe ''Belle' set about making tboir
preparations for a six month's cruise

"The Condition of Ltfe is Death."
This is the aphoristical saying of
one or our Own most emineut mod
ern physiologists t and one, too,
that is being continually verified.
We can scarcely turn our eyes in
aay direction without boholding the
exhibition of this law. We porceive
a disposition ia tbe great kingdoms
of naturo, to be continually catering
to tboir mutual wants. Upon the
death of indefinite quantities of veg
etable and Animal matter, is tho
principal of life sustained within
our bodies. Cpou tbe destruction
of the smaller and weaker euimals
depends tho liTes of all the caroivao
fa. Tbe hawk preys apon the chick

wolf apon tbe lamb i and man upon
all. By tbo death of tho foliago, and
its subsequent decay, tho trees roots
