'I will teach you u I would int torn and: Go
now with Jeanette, and she will she you other
clothes, sad when you have raided you may oome
to me again.'
Myra kissed the lady's band, and followed the
old nurse from the room, wondering if she would
ever be so graceful and lovely sa Dana Liu
'What freak now, Linder' said Don Hermosa,
entering the room smilingly. 'Are you going
to undertake to tame a real wild Zisiptri girl 1'
'Yes,' replied Donna Liu; 'but she doesn't
seem so wild ; and, Rodrigo, there is something
in her large, dark eyes, and rich voice, which re
mioda too of our lost child. Had she lived she
would have been just the age of this young girl,
and could surely ..not be more beautiful. Al.
ready I feel as if the gipsy girl were semi me as
a blessing from Heaven. Thee, too, your young
friend, Don Carlos, loves her, and I will try and
make her worthy of him, for yon know I am not
one to thwart a loving heart.
So it was settled that Myra was to becodie an
inmate of Don Rodrigo's palace. She soon be•
came Donna Lieu's especial Chirp, and by her
docility, intelligence, and gentle temper, endear
ed herself to all around her.
One day Donna Lina wok reclining on her
couch, and Myra sitting on her low seat beside
her, when she asked her if she would sing and
dance for her, as she did in - the days of her rov
ing life Myra smiled, though her face was
mantled with a rich blush, and she rather rein°•
tautly took her guitar, for the liembrance of
her gipsy life now filled her with feelings of
shame ; and one who had seen her in her former

had lost much of the darkness incident to an ex•

ornamented with coins and gay ribbons, but
braided neatly, and wound round her small, well

a 'closely fitting, dress of blue silk, and her small
hinds were shaded by lace ruffles.

log account of a visit to the city of Delhi—a
name, with that of Cawnpore, rendered but too
familiar by its inhuman atrocities., •
Daus Door, INDIA, January `.. 1 .5th, 1858.
Ify Dear Mr. Stuart :—Returning from the
late meeting of our Mission skt Amballa, I di ,
verged from the direct road to pay a visit to the
famous, or perhaps I . should say infamous city
of Delhi. It may not be uninteresting to you to
hear something of the state of affairs there at the
time of my visit, and I therefore purpose devo ,
Ling this letter to that subject. My reasons fur
the journey were, (1.) A natural desire to see
the various objects to which my attention had
been directed with such intensity during the long
dreary time of dm aeige. (2.) A wish to see
some friends who had over and over again invi.
tad me to visit Delhi and share their hospitality
while there. (3.) 1 had been appointed by the
Mission a member of a Committee to take meas
ures for the oolledion of destitute orphan ehil
dren for the purpose of bringing them under
Christian instruction, and I thought Delhi agood
field in which to operate.
Accordingly, on the evening of the day on
which our Mission broke up its session I left
Amballa by mail cart, bound fOr the ancient cap ,
ital of the Mogul Empire. The distance between
the two cities is 1'7.1 miles This we performed
in fourteen hours which in India is consi'aered
very rapid traveling. The mail cart however,
is anything but a comfortable conveyance It
is constructed in the rudest manner, being a sort
of oblong iron box, set upon a pair of shafts and
wheels of the coarsest manufacture, without
springs or'any other appliances that would tend
to the comfort of the traveller. It is true, there
is an iron railing 'across the centre and around
the edges of some, by which the passenger is
enabled to hold on ; but in some even this is
wanting. The cart has accommodation for tiro
passengers besides the driver and groom They
sit two before, with their faces to the horse ; and
two behind, with their backs to the other•.—
When the cart is raised, it forms an inclined
plane, sloping backwards, so that the party on
the back seat finds it rather difficult, even with
the help of the iron rail by his side and behind
him, to keep his position. it was my lot to ride
behind and I assure you during those fourteen
hours, I. had little comfort., so far as the cart went
My fellow traveler whom I never met before,
was an officer of the Delhi army. Ile was inti
mately aequainted with several of my missionary
friends, and consequently we_ were at once on
terms of cordial familiarity rle generously of ,
ferod to exchange Keats with me at the end off]
every other stage, but I soon found that he was
very much fatigued, (having traveled for several
days in the same way,) and I therefore preferred
holding on to my own berth. It was a lovely
moonlight night, the road mostAT the way ex!
cellent, the horses when once started, went at a
furious pace, and, notwithstanding my position
on the back seat, the night passed pleasantly,
and at eight o'clock the following morning I
reached my destination in safety, and with very
little sense of fatigue.
The first part of the journey presented little
that was interesting, but as we approached Del
hi, I could see by the light of the moon, the
mud walls and charred timbers of burned depop
ulated ; the places that had been inbab
iced by the rapacious Goojurs, who plundered
the Europeans in May last These wretehel
creatures had evidently been in kiwi,. with the
mutineers before the Delhi massacre, for at. the
first signal of revolt, on the morning of the 11th
of May, they rushed in thousands from their
villages, to join in the general destruction
When the avengiog army marched against the
city, down the road by which I traveled, these
villages were destroyed, and their inhabitants
scattered to the four winds. As we approached
closer, the sides of the road and the adjoining
fields were strewed with the skeletons of hordes,
bullocks, and camels, affording sad evidence of
the havoc whith the war had . made among these
useful animals. The bones of most hail been
picked clean by the vulture, the jackal, and the
pariah dog; but many seemed almost intact, the
akin having dried over the bones on the side ex
posed to the sun though the inward parts had all
been carried off The numbers of these guant
remnants of the last carnage quite astonished
me ; and I felt that war is an awful scourge even
to the poor dumb animals that so patiently niin,
inter to the necessities and caprices of man
But how much more awful to think of the num ,
berg of our own race intent upon each other's
destruction, that must have fallen ! What hay
oc sin has made among God's creatures ! When
"shall violence be no snore heard 'ln our land,
wasting destruction within our borders ?" Never
till "salvation be our wall, , and praise our gate. "
Such were my reflections on approaching the
blood stained suburbs of Delhi.
About five miles from the city stands 13aYi Ki
Sera, the place where the first battle was fought
on the eighth of June The position held by
the mutineers was a most advantageous one, but
nothing could resist the impetuosity - of the Brit.
ish charge The cowardly Sepoys, though in
overwhelming numbers, here abandoned sixteen
guns and fled pell mell into the city. I was par
titularly struck with the appearance of the trees
on each aide of the road. Nothing but stunted
remnants, despoiled of their foliage and smaller
branches are anywhere to be aeon :- as if some
tremendous storm had passed over, destroying
everything in its course. The branches had
been cut for firewood and provender for elephants,
camels, Its Passing Nadi Ki Sera, we came in
full view of the ridge on which the English pie
quets had been placed, and the ground in the
rear - occupied by the clamp during the past sum
mer ; and in the distance rose the minarets and
domes, turrets and palaces of the city. Our road
lay through the Saki Mandl, a large straggling
suberb of alternate gardens, surrounded by high
stone walla and low flat roofed houses. Here was
the scene of the principal conflicts—the twenty
eight battles that were fought previous to the
final struggle in September. The walls and
houses were everywhere destroyed, the trees were
felled,4nd evrything around gave evidence of
the terrible passion that had been let loose. This
snberb had invariably given cover to the mutin
eers in their attacks on the English position.—
They had over and and over again been driven
out of it, but as the English were not in suffi
cient strength to retail possession of it, it con
tinued a source of annoyance to the end. It
was in one part of this suberb that the fourth
assaulting column was defeated on the day of
the assault; but this circumstance Wag of little
moment as the other three columns made good
their position within the city walls.
nasty intrasamoni IN MMUS.
We entered by the Lahore gate of the city,
and the first object that met my gale, u I patted
in the gate, was a Europeamoldier in the sot of
belaboring with a good thief cudgel, a poor, an.
fortunate native who bad attempted to pus into
the city
. withoed, a permit. This was at once
demonstrative of the power that now held away
within. - Prom the Lahore gate we passed down
the Urdehassar sad Mauth (shook, two wide
streets, or rather oontinuations of the same street,
about a mile in length and thirty yards wide ;
and I was dropped from the wail cart at She Lr
bore gate of the Pekoe. My Wanda was gear.
tiered in apartMents immediately over this gate,
and I soon found myself with them at a com
fortable breakfast, in a room on the tkird,Moq,
and which commanded a magnificent view date
interior buildings of the palace on one side, with
the river in the distance, and the city of Delhi
on the other. I -was rather shocked, however,
when my hosts pointed to some stains of blood
on the wall, told me that the apartm ents we then
occupied, were the same is whiitte Rev. Mr.
Jennings had lived, and in which he, his daugh
ter, and Miss Clifford bad been murdered on the
11th of May last. These were among the first
victims of the bloody thirsty mntiseerig no, not
the mutineers, for these helpless ladies were mu
dered by the people of the Palace,who, when the
mutineers entered Delhi, at ogee commenced the
work of destruction and death, showing that they
were all prepared, and only awaited the first move
on the part of the army, to enable them to carry
out their bloody purposes. Everywhere through&
ont s this calamitous season have the Mohamme
dans shown the most savage thirst for blood. In
another part of the palace enclosure 49 ladies
and children were massacred in cold blood ten
days before the outbreak. During this massacre
the king sat in state opposite a great gateway
which opened on the scene of the slaughter, and
one of his sons was the first to fire on tho wretch
ed victims.
The very day of my arrival I went all over
the ground that bad been occupied by the Eng.
fifth army, and examined tho positions selected
for thebreaching batteries, &o. I then exams
fined in detail the effects of their fire on the dif
fereut parts of the defences. It is only on the
ground itself that ono can obtain anything like
an adequate idea of the difficulties to be overt
enure in such operations as were carried on here,
and after seeing all I was amazed at the boldness
of that handful of Europeans in attemping to
enter Delhi. The defences are most formidable,
and the numbers of the defenders of the city
were at least ten to one of the attacking army.
The English artillery had, however, done tre
merlotel execution. The Cashmere and More°
Bastions were heaps of rubbish, and all along
the side of the city exposed to the fire, there lie
fearful evi4ettee of the havoc made by the breach•
ing batteries The guns of the mutineers had
suffered very severely. Very few of them were
left whole So well directed had been
the English fire, that a great many of the
guns were rendered quite useless—their muzzles
being knocked off, their staunchions broken, or
their carriages destroyed. During the six days
after the English entered the city, their position
was most critical. Many of the European poi
diers gave themselves up to drink; as the enemy,
knowing their thirst for such things, had left
large quaotities of brandy, champagne, &c.; at
every corner, street after street, nay, even house
after honse had to be contended for. In these
parts of the city the walls everywhere show even
now how terrible the struggle must have been.
Some houses are in rains.' And all along cer
tain streets the bullet marks on the walls aP
SA close its the stars in the firmament on it ea
night. Rot it was not these marks of active
operations tiro struck me most. It was the
general appearance of this immense city. When
the English army entered at one side the inhabi
tants fled at the other, leaving every house empty
I believe only a few wretched orirging Hindoos
remained behind The vast moos of about two
hundred thbusand soul.; fled from the place,
carrying whatever they could with them. The
wh s le pity was then systematically plundered by
the army Indiscriminate robbery was prevent
ed 24 fir as p o -odble, but it was difficult to pre
vent the wild soldiers - of the Punjab from gratis
lying their natural thirst for plunder. Hence,
although prize ag ents were appointed to collect
all property, to be equally divided among the
soldiers, there was nevertheless a great deal
taken by private individuals. Even during the
period of my visit, which was nearly three
months after the assault, the prise agents and
their hands were busily engaged in digging, and
otherwi-e searching fur treasure,
In consequence of the desertion and plunder
of the city, its aspect was most, meLtneholy. I
walked through long streets and could 800 noth.

CAR.—John Pluenix, the inimitable wit, thus tolls
an incident connected with a ride on the New
York Central Railroad. Ile relates in a letter
to the Knickerbocker Magazine and puts it on
record to serve as a caution 11 future innocent
travellers. He says:
" I had observed at each change of the ears.
and they were frequent, when the general scram
ble took place, one ear was defended from the
assaults by a stalwart Irishman, whn, deaf to
menaces, or softened by entreaty, and uncorrupt
ed by bribes, maintained his post for the benefit
of the 'ladies.' 'Leddies' ear, air, av you pleas
—forrod ear for gentlemen without leddies.'—
Need 1 51,y that this car was the most comfor
table of the train l oad with that stern resolve
which ever distinguished me t ,in the discharge of
my duty towards myself, I determined to get in
to it conic pi angle. So when we changed cars
at 4itiaa, I rushed forth, and seeing a nice
young person, with a pretty face, bonnet and
shall, and a large portmanteau, urging her
way through the crowd, I stepped up by her
side, and with native grace and gallantry, offer
ed my arm and assistance. They were grates
fully aceepted,•and proud of my success I urged
my fair charge up to the platform of the 'ladies'
ear.' My old enemy was holding the door 'ls
that your lady, sir? said he. With an inward
apology to Mrs. Pbtenix for the great injustice
done to her charms by the admission, I replied,
yes. Judge of my horror when this low ems
pkoyee of a monopolising and unaccomodating
railroad, addressed my companion with the tone
and manner of an old acquaintance, 'Well, Sal,
I guess you've done well, bat I don't think his
family will think much of the match.'"
emu vs. NE AL—The New York Tribwa#,
is a late article spots European political effaii7,
" The bone of contention now is the appropria
tion of the Rock or Island of Purim, at the en
trance of the Red Sea. It is clear that if Eng
land is to bold India, she is bound to facilitate
to the utmost of her power every means of in ,
teroourse; and consequently, we think her per
fectly justifiable, under the circumstances, in
taking possession of Perim, which act does no
harm to anybody, while it is a distinct treoefit to
England; or at least an appropriate sequence to
other acts of her Eastern policy."
" If England is to bold India," the Tribune
thinks her perfectly justified in seizing upon and
taking possession, without Any shadow of right
but force, of the Island of Perm, "which act
doeslo harm to anybody," an assertion of the
Tranivit which may well bo disputed. With.iut.,
however, cont u tn e l this point, we think the
Tribrui has a position, in the extract
above, which would of necessity compel it, if it
was governed by oonsistency, to defend the seiz
ure of Cuba by the U. 8. Government. Cuba is
more easential and necessary to the United States
than Perim is to England. Our seizure of is
would do no harm to anybody, since we propose
to pay Spain liberally for it, but would be a great
benefit to its inhabitants and the world. The
71 , 4bnas, however, would not justify us in seiz
ing Cuba, although, under circumstances much
less favorable, it would justify England. What
is riot for the latter power, it would maintain
to be wrong in us.— ein. Eeq.
