Thus saying Dorcas drew near the ditch, but Hesekinh having got himself in by his unaided power, declined that ho would got himself out id the • same way. But the mud was deep and adhesive, and as he got one font out he got the other in ; and thus he continued to labor and plunge till ho was satisfied that, his own ability was bet. ter calculated to help him in than to help him out of the ditch. Ho grew wroth and so forgetting the plain language, he ex claimed : "By— 1" "Don't theo swear, Hezekiatt," inter rupted Dei•eae. "Swear !" roared Hezekiah, "thee'd eweer if thee were here !" "Swear not at all, Ilosekiab, but even lend me thine hand and I'll use my ability to pull thee out, according to the scrlpture, which sriyeth—'•if thine ox or thy ass fall into a ditch on the Sabbath day,—" "Now, sister Dorcas, thee is too bad.— Verily thee should not make me so heavy as the former animal, nor so stupid as the latter." "As to the weight," returned Dorcas, "thee must be pretty well satisfied by this time ; and as for thy stupidity, it were in deed unsisterly to liken thee to the long eared animal. But if thee is satisfied on these points and will forthwith reach me thine hand, I'll do as much as in me lieth to Firing thee IA) to land." Hezekish was pretty well convinced by this time that his own ability would never fetch him out; wherefore, humbly reach ing his hand to Dorcas, he said : "Verily, sister, I will accept thine aid, inasmuch as my own ability hath deceived me." Dorcas kindly lent her assistance, and pulling vigorously, Hezekiah at length came to land. Shaking off the mud and water like n spaniel lie returned home, but charged his sister by the way never to mention how he came by the catastrophe. Dorcas promised, of course, and as she was a girrof truth and kind feelings, she was as gond as her word. But once or twice when they were in company with several other Quakers, discoursing soberly about matters and things, Dorcas, looking archly at another girl, merely said : "Did I ever tell thee, Rachel, how broth er Hezekialt, one Sunday—" Hezekiah turned an embafrrigmirik ow!, imploring look towards her; and she (mid : • "Nay. nay, Hczekiab, not a going to tell—hut merely to ask if I had told how thee showed thy agility one Sunday, and jumped into the middle of a ditch ?"

BLESS AND FREE.". DA►Y EVENING,. DECEMBER 26, 1856. MEETI24 . OF GENERAL JACKSON AND J. Q. ADAMS AT PRESIDENT MONR4rs LEVEE. The foil Wing account of the recontre between' G eral Jackson and John Q. Adams, al i 'woe's levee, the night after Adams' el ion over Jack son for the! Prisideney :the House of Represents• Lives, is tak from Petr:r Parley's "Rec. ollectioni of is Lifetime :" I shall pa over the other individuals present,. orli , noting an incident which ! ,respects the persons in the assembly, who, most I others, engrossed the thoughts oft 'shots. Mr. Adams,•the elect; and .M ;ackson, th'e defeated. It chanced in ti _ rening that these two per sons, involv 'n. die throng, approached each ether r opposite direetions, yet without kno 'lit it. Suddenly. as they were almost t 'titer, the persons around seeing what4was about to happen, by a sort .of insti4o, stepped aside and left them faceto face. Mr. Adams was by !himself. GM. Jackson had a large, 'handsome lady on his arm. They look ed at earl' other for a moment, and then Gen. Jacksoicmoved forward, and reach. i ing out his long arm, said :—" II ow do yon do, Mr. Athos f I give you my left hand, for the right, as you see, is devoted to the fair ; I hope you aro well. sir."— I All this was gallantly and heartily said Ism! thine. Mr. Adams took the General's ! hand, and said„srith chilling coldness— ; "Very well, sir: I hope Gen..lackson is I well !" It wak :curious to see the west-: ern planter, the Indian fighter, the stern: 1 soldier who had written his country's j ! glory in the blood of the enemy at New ' Orleans—geunq and gracious in tho midst 1 I of a court, while the old courtier and (11-j Mount was stiff, i rigid, and cold as a slat.' : ute ! It was till the more remarkable from the fact that, four hours before, the former had been defeated, and the latter! 43 (1 WllB a victor in. struggle for one of the: highest objects ' . human ambition. I The persona character of these two individuals was' n fact well expressed in, the chance meeting ; the gallantry, the frankness and heartiness of one, which which captivated all; the coldness, the ilia ! tato:tit. the selt-ctincentilation of the other, which repelled all. A somewhat severe, but still cute Rimiest 'of Mr. Adams char acter, says : !..q.l;toloubtedly, one great reason of his' u'AleptAttrity, was! his cold, atitipailietio manner, and the suspicion oft selftstinces it suggested. or at least added -greatly to confirm. None approached' Mr. Adams but to receue. He never' succeeded—he never tried to conciliate. I recollect atiannedote somewhat illus.: trative of this. When lie was a catitli• date for the Presidency, his political friends thought it advisable that hestiould attend a rattle show at Worcester, Mass., so as to concilate the numbers of influen tial men who might be present. Accord ingly he went. and while there malty per : VMS were introduced to him. and among the rest, a farmer of the vicinity—a man of substance and great respectability.— On being presented, he said : 'Mr. Adams, I stn verpglad to see you My wile, when she was a gal, lived in your father's family; you were then a little boy, and she has told me a great deal about You. She has very often combed your head.' CONVERMONS TO PROTES rANISM. BURSTING OF A - GlutsosTortn.—A large :grindstone in ihe ouetiine shop of _Beech & long, Gower Hydraulic, at .Hamilton, 0., burst a few days ago, without any ape parent cause, almost instantly. killing John Krebs, who was seated by it at work.

About this tomb there hangs a great deal of mystery. The vulgar story of tho sus. pended coffin, has long boon exploded, and the question, now seems to be, whether , thine is any tomb at all ? Lieut. Burton,' who recently made a pilgrimage to the ho. ly cities, in the disguise of an Afghan Der vish, furnishes the most reliahlOnfortna- Lion upon this point. . We learn from hie I narrativo that, although thousands go year ly to El Medinah to see the tooth of the . , Prophet, yet no ono over saw it 1 In one corner of the grand mosque of Coat city there is a chamber Supposed to be entirely walled. up with atone or planking, inside of which, the pilgrim is told, are the tombs of Mohammed and the first two Ca lipt's, Abubeker and Oinar. But this walled chamber is surrounded, outside,, 1 with a curtain, somewhat like u four-post! bed. No ono is permitted to , look behind, I the curtain, except tho ounuolis who at, times replace it with a new tine, and they say that a supernatural light surrounds 1 the tomb that would strike with blindness any one that would have the temerity to approach it., This story is now univer sally believed among Moslems. Outside of the curtain, leaving a narrow space between, is an iron filagree railing, which serves to keep the crowd from close contact with the tomb. After many pray. ers and prostrations the pilgrim is made to approach a small window 111 the railing through which he catches a glimpse of the curtain. The exact place of Moham med's tomb is distinguished by a large pearl rosary, and a peculiar ornament sus pended to the curtain, which the vulgar believe to be a "jewel of the jewels of Par adise." Limit: Burton„ however, however, says, to his eyes it resembled the ground stoppers of glass, used for"tho humbler sort of de' s canters ! Through the window in the rail. ing the pilgrims aro expected to throw their contributions, and the treasures of the place are kept in the narrow passage be, tweet' the railing and the curtain. Then. mount is said to be enormous, which Lieut. Burton doubts. • No one is permitted to enter this passage except upon the pay went of an.cxtruonliary sum. What there realty is behind the curtain ! seems to be ll:matter of great doubt, The, Milstein au t horities ore divided in' opinion. Some Say there is no wall behind the cur tale ; others that it covers a sq nitro build ing of black atones, in the interior of:which is the tomb, while 'others say there are three deep graves, but no traces of tombs;, and lastly, Lieut. Burton strongly suspects that the burial place of the prophet is en tirely unknown.

William Gifford,. the great editor of the Quarterly, was an apprentice to a shoemaker, and spent his leisure hours in study. And because he had 'neither pen nor paper, slate nor pencil, Ito wrought out his problems on smooth loather, with a blunt awl. David Rittenhouse, the American As tronomer, Wien a plow-boy, 'was observed _to have covered his plow and fences with figures and calculations. Jtunes Ferguson, tile great Scotch Astronomer, learned to read by himself, and Mastered the ele. meuts of Astronomy while a shepherd's boy in the fields, by night.

Buddeolyi a tremendous explosion wait heard ; the ground shook as from the effeet of an earthquake' and windows were smash:- ed iu every direction. The explosion was followed by two others and a dense black smoke arose. It was a fter a time ascertain ed that the lightning had fallen on the church of at. J ohn, and had penetrated in. 'to the subterranean vaults underneath, used as adepot for gunpowder, and in whioh an implant° quantity of that commodity had recently been placed. It is impossible io depict the horror of the•scone. Not house was left standing in the whole qua. ter of the city near the church, and that building itself was completely levelled with the ground. The quarter was the richest and handsomest in the town, and not a ves tige of itiow remains: Disfigured bodies Were lying about on.. the ground, and the groans of the dyidg were , beard on every . aide— 'prompt and immediate anis tame tieen given, there' is no doubt that teeny—ayes might have been saved; but ve iny one was thrown into each consternation by-the auddeeneas of the , catastrophe, that. but few 'had presence of mind enough left to, undertake the painful task.

The family , of the " Mel lliuditri Purley Effendi, composed of eighteen persons, have all perished. ' mother, his wife and his daughter ' were found about 500 yards from their house. Some idea of the force of the explosion may be formed from the fact that a barge in the harbor was sunk by a quantity of 'stones falliug'en her, and beating a hole' thmgh - her bottom, and by a sailor being killed by • a stone strikiug him in the'-head at a dip. tam of more than belt a y mile front the spot. trona the Philadelphia Neva of Tucaday.
