Written for The Alleguaxian
A Ore urn.
One shadowy autumn day I strayed,
When I had weary grown
Of all the heartless throngs of earth,
Far to the woods alone.
The faded leaves were sere and dry,
And mournfully the breeze
Sighed ns they swiftly rustling down
Forsook the parent trees.
I laid me down beneath an oak,
And soon the influence blest
Of Nature's music o'er me stole,
And lulled me into rest.
Methought I saw a spirit fair,
With robes of purest white ;
And in her soft blue eye there beamed
Affection's heavenly light.
She in her hand inviting held
Of golden caskets three ;
Wond'ring I asked what in them was,
She beckoned "come and see."
I looked and saw a circling chain,
With links of shining gold,
Without beginning, without end,
Of boundless power it told.
I saw a flower of petals white,
And leaves forever green ;
It was the fairest Cower that I
E'er upon earth had seen.
And in the other casket pure
I saw a sparkling gem,
To grace a maiden's circlet fit,
Or monarch's diadem.
When I these treasures had beheld,
Wond'ring I asked again
''What means this oriental gem,
This ilower and golden chain?''
The spirits then, with accents low,
(She seemed for earth too fair.)
Replied, '-They tire the emblems fit
Of Friendship's treasures rare.
'The chain is bound with closest links;
They arc the links of love ; when
They're joined on earth, and strengthened
The soul awakes above.
''Tis Friendship's flower, whose petals
Will live in fudi!es3 bloom, bright
When o'er the dying form is cast
The shadow of the tomb.
"'Tis Friendship's gem, of purer ray
Than pearl or diamond bright;
Far in the heart's deep mine 'tis found
It is of life the light."
She said, and gath'ring close her robes,
She faded with the mist,
While every twig waved her adieu,
liy gentle zephyrs kissed.
Then came the rain-drops softly down,
As Nature seemed to weep;
And falling gently on my brow,
Dispelled my dreamy sleep.

BY A CITIZEN OF CAMBRIA COUNTY.
Act-online to the terms of our engage
ment, as mentioned in my last number, I
was still free to appropriate my time for
the space of six clays to my own advan
tage, before any riaiuirementa of said
!i.rr'."ineiit, could Lind me to obey .any
higher authority than my own will; con-
sciiuciitly it was kit to myseil wiietner a
should continnc to pay four shillings per
day for board and lodgings on shore, with
sd't bread, roast beef and soup for dinner,
or once more, and with le.sd expense, re
turn to salt junk, rice and hard bread, on
shipboard. Preferring the former alter
native, I agaiu resumed my usual place at
the bountiful board of my former host,
whose house, for the benefit of all travel
ers who may in future visit Gibraltar I
will more fully describe, a.s being located
0,i the right of the Plaza St. Stebestian,
about one half mile from the Palermo
Yhaif, and near the Corn Market in said
city; and is readily distinguished from
the partly dilapidated tenements that sur
round it by a sign elevated (apparently to
the great danger of heads passing under
neath) over its front entrance, on which,
in u white ground, is portrayed in colora
of flaming red a peaked anchor, with ca
ble attached, ready to let go underneath
which, letters in black denotes that W.
Spcaren is proprietor. Here, with a few
exceptions, occasioned by suudry visits to
the country, myself and two or three oth
ers of our chip's company remained during
the balance of the time allotted to tis,
and, 1 may add, had at no time cause to

ing the dull monotony of life on shipboard
Uiot considering the work,) for the free
dom of the shore.
In my excursions I visited several pleas
ant villages, as also beautiful Spanish and
Knglish country residences; some of which,
from their location in deep vallies, sur
rounded by rocky precipices and romantic
waterfalls, and scarcely accessibly by any
conveyance other than that of a mule,
would make subjects for the pencil of an
artist. On many of the high headlands
forming the coasts, are still to be seen the
remains of ancient watcli towers, while on
the low lands beneath are the vestiges of
fortifications, whose antiquity tradition
traces beyond the conquest of the Moors.
There is probably no country in Europe,
that presents more interesting objects for
contemplation than this part of Spain, and
no one who is at all acquainted with Span
ish history, can enter any part of the
country without finding food for thought,
in the innumerable relics of the past,
which surround him on every side. They
refer him to scenes enacted centuries ago,
before Spain's fair lands were wrested from
her, by the swarthy followers of Moham
med. The Phoenician, Carthagcuian,
ltoman, Oath aud Arabian have each left
traces of their former dominion, that 1113-r-iads
of years yet to come cannot wholly
obliterate. Even yet the smiling country,
though graced with groves of the olive,
citron and orange is darkened by rem
nants of ancient barbarism, while weather
beaten walls rear themselves amidst the
of the fig tree and the
panoramic history of the Uocotia
Romans, missed before mv mind
while seated on the ruins of an ancient
watch tower, which overlooked the strait,
and commanded a view of the distant coast
of Africa. Its antiquity dated long antc
rion to the reign of Ferdinand and Isabel
la, and was most probably one of the tow
ers of observation erected by the zealous
followers of El-zagle, at whose name Rod
erick the (loth trembled on his throne.
But their power has long since passed
away, and nothing now remains to com
memorate the chivalrous deeds performed
under its walls, but the moss-covered
court yard, and the huge pile of stones;
which, although we now trample them
with impunity, the armies of Spain, in her
day of glorj-, dared not to approach. Even
now tlie descendants of those who by force
of arms overthrew the Moslem yoke, have
succumbed to a foreign power, aud the
rule of the English, although an innova
tion, is manifestly an advantage to the
How long these contemplations might
have continued, or what length of time I
might have remained seated on the ruins
of this lonely watch tower noting events
in Spanish history, had I not been inter
rupted by the return of my shipmate, I
will not pretend to say. He had wander
ed off to a collection of houses, whose tops
were plainly visible in the distance, in
search of something more interesting: to a
sailor just set on shore, than heaps of
stones a:id other rubbish, fit for ballast
but not for yrttb ; but now returned bear
ing a goat's milk cheese in one hand and
a leathern bottle containing wine iu the
other. lie was also accompanied by a
woman, who without further iutroduclioti
demanded money from me for part of the
goods her companion had iu charge. Her
language at once proved her nativity, and
I was soon enlightened in regard to the
difficulty, by my friend informing me that
lie had bought the wine from a girl iu a
shop, whom he had patronized to the ex
tent of one shilling, but in taking it out
had met this old woman who wanted some
thing more, but what it was he could not
understand. Tee womau had seized the
bottle, but he not letting go had almost
a quarrel. At length by signs and all the
Spanish words in his vocabulary, he in
duced the woman to aecompanj' him to his
comrade, whom they found seated on the
ruins of a watch tower, like Marius on the
broken down walls of Carthage, contem
plating the remains of the almost forgot
ten kingdom of the Goths. I soon learn
ed, by making use of what Spanish words
I knew, that all the virago of the wine
shop wanted, was cither the return of the
empty wine bottle, or for aud in consider
ation of the same ouo shilling was to be
to her in hand paid. Preferring one shil
ling to au empty wine bottle, in a few
minutes we returned her property with
thanks "bunos dies" and "paxvobiscnm"
being exchanged between us, she left us
to masticate our cheese by itself, which
would certainly have been more easily ac
complished if we had had the liquid to ac
This interruption as well as the bad
dinner of cheese extinguished all my re
collections of Spanish history, and although
I had a copy of the venerable Era Antonio
Frangapani's history by me, whose descrip
tion of those scenes charm the reader, by
his pleasant narration of its incidents, I
was not unwilling, at the suggestion of my
companion, to put Era Antonio in my
pocket, and adjouru to the "Red Anchor"
for something more substantial to com
plete our noonday meal.
Almost every day brought an excursion
similar to the above, but usually in adiffcr
eufr direction.. These I sometimes made
in company, at other times alone, but gen
erally cither on a horse or mule, as these
animals are easily obtained at low rates of
hire always paid in advance w hich pre
caution I discovered was principally limi
ted to sailors, as it is well known not only
in this but in all seaports, that unless he
has more than his usual allowance of
money, he is not likely to return from an
expedition of this kind with enough left
to balance his account. More especially
is it the case in a country like this, where
wine and i(u r refreshments can be had at
every turn in his journey.
Nothing can be more cxhileratinr af
ter a long confinement on shipboard, than
to find one's self free from all control,
and seated upon the back of a spirited
horse or a docile mule, climbing the pre
cipitous heights that bound Gibraltar bay.
Having surmounted its highest peak,
casting your eyes over the oity and ship
ping beneath, you see the blue waters of
the Mediterranean rise like mountains in
the dLstance, while far beyond, on a clear
day is seen the well defined outlines of
the African coasts. Turning inland, 'ou
scour the country a la Hon Quixotic, and
create a consternation among the peaceful
villagers and naked children, that the
chivalrous knight himself might well have
envied. Indeed the adventures of San
cho Panza were not to be compared to
ours, and were they but described in the
inimitable language of Cervantes would
make a book not unworthy this great
Such was our life; but like all things
earthly it must end, yet we determined to
make the most of it until the last day of
our stay on shore had arrived. 15y way
of accomplishing this, we determined to
gratify a laudable curiosity, by visiting
the ancient town of Loretto. For this
purpose I set apart the last day of my
liberty on shore, aud no further prepara
tions being necessary than to appropriate
some ten shillings for that object, at nine
o'clock iu the morning, I found myself,
with about forty others bouud for the
same place, on board a small black steam
boat, known to those who could read
Spanish as the Eortillo. The accommo
dations consisted of an open cabin with a
row of benches on each side, an eight by
ten deck forward coutaiiiing a few scat
tered seats around the one smoke stack
that decorated the upper works of this
lilliputian steamer. These accommodations
being more or less covered with soot and
coal dust, made it more agreeable to stand
throughout the entire voyage than to sit
in the tilth accumulated on these seats.
The distance being about fifteen miles,
was made in two hours, which was con
sidered extraordinary time for the Eortilla.
Arrived at Loretto, I found quite a town,
but few attractions for a stranger except
ing only the immense Cathedral. It is
composed of au enormous number of stone
buildings, magnificent in design, and pre
senting an appearance of splendor and
lavish expenditure, rarely equalled even
by the church of Rome. Three-fourths
of the buildiugs are devoted to religious
purposes, and a like number of the inhab
itants seem to be in pursuit of the same
object. Ueing unable to gain admittance
to but a very small part of the interior, I
cannot vouch for the truth of the many
stories of untold wealth consumed in the
decoration of these churches. Disap
pointed in the main object of my visit,
and finding little else in the town worthy
of note, after taking a dinner of goat's
flesh cooked with garlic and sour wine, at
a restaurant, I took my departure. Not,
however, before I had deposited a six
pence in the hands of a barefooted mendi
cant, who was soliciting alms for the
benefit of his Saint. Finding the boat
ready to leave, I secured a passage aud in
three hours more was safely quartered at
my friend Spearin's.
The remainder of the afternoon was
devoted to laying in some sea stores,
clothing, books aud other necessaries re
quired in a long voyage. The last night
had come, aud it was determined by those
of us on shore, that it should be celebrated
by a grand Jubilee. After due consider
ation, wc concluded a visit to the Theatre
should be the first act in the drama of the
evening. Profiting by the experience of
my first night on shore, wc determined
not to go this time without providing
against any accident that might occur
from our ignorance. - We therefore en
gaged a guide, who was also to officiate
as interpreter whenever his services should
be required. On our part we agreed to
pay his admittance fee to the Theatre,
and give him six drinks of such liquors
as he might select three to be taken
before the performance began, and the
balauce at any time after its close and be
fore we returned to our lodgings. With
this understanding we started- stopping
occasionally to fulfil our part of the coi
tract. This we did so faithfully that we
were not half way to the Theatre when
the third was taken, still as the agreement
specified no certain distance we were to
travel before complying with the terms,
we were no way dissatisfied, until another
halt was made and another drink was
demanded. After considerable diseussion
this was granted, with the understanding
that he was to have one less on our return,
but when on approaching our destination,
our top-heavy guide refused to proceed
without indulging in his favorite beverage,
we came to a stand still, and also to the
conclusion, that he had rather too much
now to be of any use to us as an expoun
der of the Spanish language the idioms
of both the Spanish and English being
already so mixed, that it was difficult to
tell which he tried to speak. Still he
made us understand that lie would go no
further, without more stimulus, and we, iu
turn, determined not to be imposed upon
with impunity. Therefore we were not
disposed to parley long, but to get satisfac
tion for what we had given him, concluded
to flog him and that too "ship-shape and
sailor fashion." For want of a rope's end
we used a tightly twisted handkerchief,
and in the absence of a captain, a sailor's
back was substituted. In a trice we had
him stripped and elevated to the proper
position, but our satisfaction was of short
duration, for scarcely had he given vent
to a dozen vociferous yells, elicited by as
many strokes of the whip, until we were
surrounded by a crowd of men, women
and children, among whom we recognized
a sufficient number of police uniforms "to
induce us to release our victim without
further notice, and escape from that im
mediate vicinity, as soon as possible.
Happening to be among the few unfortu
nate ones that could not get away, I soon
found myself in company with some of mv
shipmates, marching from the scene of
our late exploit, with an indistinct idea
that I would prefer some other society to
that in which I was, but perfectly con
scious that such a desire could not be
gratified at that particular time. If I had
anydoubtof the fact it would have been eas
ily disposed of, by the disagreeable sensa
tion I experienced, iu having a strange arm
(upon which w;ls the insignia of ollice,)
interlocked with my owu, and which ap
peared to insist on going in a contrary di
rection to the inclination of the party it
had so unceremoniously intruded its com
pany upon; and which direction, was
toward a part of the city where a certain
building was located known by such names
as Lock-up J ug Chokey Calaboose,
The Fates willed, and who can avoid
their decrees, and the doctrine of predes
tination could give us little comfort in a
difficulty like this; and although I never
doubted the wisdom of Providence, yet a
thought mi';;ht have crossed my mind, that
the punishment for our sin could not have
been inflicted at a much worse time. The
"good time" wc were to have on our last
night was thus nipped in the bud ; and
our expected jollification brought to a
close before the uight had well began.
And now to escape from passing the re
mainder of it in the watch-house, was a
question we were not exactly prepared to
It is unnecessary to follow any further
the adventures of that night. Suffice it,
that in the absence of a prosecutor our
trial was not a hard one, and each of us
leaving one dollar and a half, for the ben
efit of the city government, reported
ourselves safe and sound the next morn
ing, on board the ship. Thus ended my
first and last visit to the city of Gibraltar.
In a neighboring town lives a
person who has always refused to give
anything towards the support of religious
worship. A few years ago a new church
was built, aud the gentleman, to the sur
prise of all, gave a bell for the new struc
ture. On being asked the reason, he said
he never put his money where he could
not hear it ring.
