Charles DieXensen His Recent Stelae's'
Sly*Lear to a Lear.
Once upon a time (no matter wheni) I
;pas engaged in a pursuit (no matter
What,).wbielf could be tran s a cted my
alone-, in which I, could have no
!help which imposed a constant strain on
the attention, memory, observation, and
physical powers; and which involved , an
almost fabulous amount of change of place
.and tapidrailway traveling. I had fol
lowed this ptirsuit through an exception
trying winter in an always trying
climate; and had resumed it is • England
after but a brief repose. Thus it mine to
be prolonged until; at length—and, as it
.seemed, all of a sudden—it so wore me
, out that I could not rely; With my usual
cheerful confidence, upon myself to
achieve the constantly' recurring task,
'and began to feel, for the first time in my
life, giddy, jarred, shaken, faint,, tweet
, tain,of voice and sight and tread and
louckand dull of spirit.', ; The medical
advice Ibonght within a fe•hOurs, was
given; in two words: "Insbuit fest."
Being echelon:fed to observe myself as
curkinsly as if I were another man, and
knowingthe advice to 'meet my only need,
I instantly batted in the pursuit of which
I ipak," and rested. '-
Ay,. intention was, to interpose, as it
'were; a fly-leaf in the book of my life, 'on
_which nothing' . should be written frem
without, or abrief season of a few weeks.
. But some very singular experiences re
corded themselves on this one fly-leaf, and
am going to relate them literally,: I
repeat the word: literally.
My first odd experience was of the re
markable coincidence between my case,
in the general mind,' and one Mr. Her
' dle's as I find it recorded in a work of fic
tion called . •Little Dorrit. To be sure,
Merdle was a swindler, forger, and
thief, and my calling had been of less
harmful (and less remuneratiire) nature;
but it Was all one for that.
Here is "Mr. Merdle's case:
"At first, he was dead of all the di
seases that ever were known, and of soy
. erg bran-new maladies invented with the
speed of :Light to meet the demand of the
oceasion. He had concealed a dropsy
from infaney, he had inherited a large
'estate of. water on the chest from his
grandfather, he had had an operation
pertormed npon him every morning of
his life for eighteen years. he had been
subject to the ' explosion of importaht
veins in his body atter the manner of fire
works, he had had something the matter
with his lung", ne had had something the
matter with his heart, he had hacteome
' thing the matter with his brain. rive
hundredpeople who sat down to break
fast entirely uninforthed on the whole
subject, believed before they had done
' breakfast, that they privately and per
' sonally knew Physician to have said to
Mr. Ide.rdle. 'Yon must` expect to go out
some; day, like the snuff of a candle;' and
that they knew Mr. Merdle to hive said.
to PhysiCian 'A man can die but once.'
By about eleven o'clock in the forenoon,
something the matter with the brain, be
came the favorite theory against the field;
and by twelie the something had been
distinctly ascertained to be 'Pressure.'
"Pressure was so entirely sitisfactory
to the public mind, and seemed to make
every one so comtortable, that it might.,
have lasted all day but for Bar's haying
taken the real state of the case into court
at half-test nine. Pressure, however. so
far from 'being overthrown by the discov
ery,'becathe a greater favorite than ever.
There was a general moralizing upon
Pressure, in every street.. all the people
' whehad tried to Sadie, money and had
not been able to' do it, said, 'rhere you
were! 'Yon no sooner began to devote
yourself tti the pursuit of wealth,_thin
you-got Pressure. The idle people im
proved the occasion in a similar manner.
Bft, said they,. what you brought your
self to by work, work, work!' You per
slated in working, you overdid it! Pres
stare came , on and yon were done fori
This dthaidert:tion was very` potent in
mazy quarters , but nowheremore so than
among the young clerks and = partners
who bad never been in the alightest dan
ger of overdoing it. These, one and, all
declared, quite piously, that they hoped
they would never forget the Warning as
long as they lived, and that their conduct
might be so regulated as to keep off Pres
sure, and preserve them a comfort to their
friends, for many years."
Just my case—it I had only known it—
when I was, quietly basking in the sun
shine in my Kentish meadow I
But while I so rested, thankfully re
covering every hour;l had experiences
more odd than this. I bad experiences of
spiritual conceit, Tor which, as giving me
a new warning against that curse of
mankind, I shall always feel grateful to
the supposition that I was too far gone
to protest against playing sick lion to
airy stray donkey with an itching hoof.
All sorts of people seemed to become vi
cariously religions at my expense. I re
ceived the most uncompromising warn
ing that I was a Heathen; on the concln
sive authority of a field preacher who,
like the most of his ignorant and v ain and
_ daring class, could not construes a tolera
ble sentence in his native tongue or pen a
fair Jaw.. , This inspired individual
called me to order roundly, and knew in
the freest and easiest way where I was
`\, going to, and what would become of me
if I failed to failifori myself on his bright
example, and was on terms of bliusphe
,mono confidence with - the Heavenly
Host. He was in the . . . secrets of my
\ heat; elontethelbwelitecnuidingiof my
soulhe I—and could read , the depths of .
' my nature' better than .his A B4Oitind
. - could turn me inside out, '-like
his own clammy glove. But,'
what is • far more extraordinary
'than thisr,for. "ouch- dirty water as

Anotht odd' entry on the fly leaf, of a
more entertaining character; WAS 'the won
derfbl persistency with which kindequi
pathiserd assuMed that 1 had injuriously
vottpled 'with the so tmddeittlyrelinquisheil
pursuit, ?;those personal habits lot mine
most °brio:lndy incompatible With it, and
tripst - plaitily imPossible of being main
tained.'along with it. As; all that exer
cise, all that told bathing, all that - wind
and weather, all that uphill training—all
that everything else, say, whichis usually
carried about by express trains in a-port
-mantean and hat-box, and partaken of
under a flaming row of gas-lights in the
company of two thousand people. This
assuming of a whole case against all facts
and likellhond, struck me as particularly
droll, and was an oddity of which I cer
tainly bad had no adequate experience in
life until I turnixtthat curious fly-leaf.
My old acquaintances the begging-let
ter writers came out on the fly-leaf, very
piously indeed. They were glad, at such
a'serloini crisis, to offer me another oppor
tunity of sending that Post-Officer order.
I needn't' Make it a pound, as previously
- insisted on; ten shillings might ease My
mind. And Heaven ,forbid that they
should refuse, at such an insignificant
figure, to take a weight off the memory
of an erring fellow-creaturet One gen
tleman', of an artistic turn (and copiously
illustrating the books of the Mendicity
Society), thought' It might soothe my
conscience in the tender respect of gifts
misused, if I would iihintdiately cash up
in aid of his lowly talent for original de
sign—as a specimen of which he enclosed
.1= g work of 'art whit]] I recognize as a
tracing from a woodcut originally pub
lished in the late Mrs. Tr ollope a book on
America forty Or fifty years r.go.' 'The
- number of people who were prepared to
live long'years after me, untiring bene
factors to their species, for fifty pounds a
piece down, was astonishing. Also, of
those who wanted bank notes for stiff
penitential- amounts, to give away—not
to keep, on any account.
Divers wonderful medicines and ma
chines insinuated recommendations for
themselves into the 'fly-leaf that was to
have been so blank. It was eapecially
observable that every prescriber whether
in a moral br physical .directisin, knew
me thoroughly—knew me from head to
heel, in and out, through and through,
upside down. I was a glass piece of
general property, and everybody was
on the -most surprisingly intimate
terms with me. A few public in
stitutions bad complimentary percep
tions of corners in my mind, of
which, after considerable, self-examina
tion. I hive not discovered any-indica
tion. Neat little printed forms were ad
dressed to those corners, beginning with
these words: "I ere and bequeath."
Will it'seem exaggerative to state my
belief that the most honest, the most mod
est, and the least vain-glorionz of all the
records upon the strange fly-leaf. was a
letter from the self-deceived discoverer of
the recondite secret "how to live four or
'five hundred years?" Doubtless it will
seem so, yet the statement is not exagger
ative by any means, but is made in my
serious and Sincere conviction. With
this, and' with a laugh at the rest that
shalimot be cynical, I turn the fly-leaf,
and go on again.
Theltleb Young. Mtn of New York.
Donn Platt, in one of his letters to the
Cincinnati. Commercial, describing the
places of amusement inliew York, says ;
"One may see, night after night, at
these placea of amusement, young men
well dressed , ,- but carrying in their faces
the marks of early dissipation. From
among these come the loudest plaudits
and the costliest bouquets and baskets of
flowers which greet and encourage the
poor girls, who are willing to make any
exhibition of themselves that may put
money in their pockets.
"The majority of the young men are
made up of the sons of wealthy Citizens,
who propose to people penitentiaries
and poor-houses with Their offspring.
Others again are confidential clerks and
cashiers or youttg readmits, *ho cannot
afford such extravagance, and are on the
high road to ruin. We read of such cases
frequently in the papers, but more fre
quently the miserable victim passes from
sight unnoticed and almost unknown.
"At rare intervels :we find a wealthy
man leaving behind him sons so mean or
so well trained that \they keep, and per
• haps' increase, the Wealth they inherit.
Bat as a gene ral rule, the wealth, if not
lost before the 'parent dies, is scattered
immediately after. The sons pass into
absolute want; with no aptitude for any
menial pursuit, and no disposition to do
downright labor, they come" up after a
time as bar-keepers, billiard•markers, or
pimps for worse place t - ' And from these

A HEW weeks ago, there was a great
commotion at the Bonaparte Lyceum, in
Paris. It has upward of one thousand
pupils, mostly the sons of the wealthiest
citizens of Paris. A collection is taken
up annually at the Lyceum, for the benefit
of the so-called Prince Imperial charities.
Thiii year the pupils manifested their hos
ditty to the young Prince and the . whole
dynasty by refusingto give a single son
for the purpose, but organized an inde
pendant subs cription for Ake poor,. and
drew up a manifesto stating their disgust
at die attempts cons tantly ; made by the
government to connect the .name of
Prince ; with ever}' thing relating to the
youths, of France, , win their
