'Well you see my dear fellow our cruise was
almost up—within a Month or so---and l'd bee

been rather idle latterly—government baldness

several ports in the Mediterranean, laid np at
Marseilles, till I. know every book and turn in
test rich old city—et Palermo, where oar men
drank *Bien wines and threw coin to the dirty
Lstzaroei—and, in Italian cities where the car

But 1 bad wearied of all—the wines of the
vintage; the revellers, and of the eternal calm of
the blue Mediterranean—and 'mitten?? began to
long for shipboard again, and the wild tossing
waves of the Atlantic. At length all bands on

mg through the Gibraltar Straits, we pliantly
rode into the harbor of Cadiz ; whore our captain
furled her Rails for a month's stay ere we came
"I do not wonderthat Byron wrote in raptures

its dwellers, or the coquettish grace in which the
beautiful donnas ware their =tulles, and "dens

Will southland; oppression bad set her foot, and
a bigoted religion held sway. Here the tawny
Moor had once conquered; here the Alliambris
lies in ruins; here it feeble queen rules a feeble
realm; the glory and pomp of old Spain will re
turn no more.
Such reVeaiions were mine in my dreamy hours
—and who could help dreaming in Cadix?—but
when strolling through the streets and public
places with my brothet officers, I had little care
or leisure for moralizing on the past.
Besides, I had latterly found a new vein for
my idle thoughts On Sunday I went to the
Church San—, le witness high mass; but nee i

neither arched dome or image of Saint or Virgin,

eyes and sweet clear responses of a nun kneeling

"Who is she" I asked of a young lad whom I

But never during this week of watobing, did I

“Flo you keep nay iee.entam here?"
"Yee, air," says he, "how nittehlt you haver'
I eoup.idered a utinit, says 1, "A plot, sir."
The young teller's face swelled, as' be liked
to have laughed right out, but arter s while be
"Did you pay a pint, air?"
"Bartia'," says I, "but p'raps you don't-retail,
so I don't mind Ishii"' a quart "
Wall, don't you think the feller snorted right
out. Tell yer what, it made me feel sort opiate,
an' I gave him a look tLat made him look sober
is about a minit ; sod when I eliaehed my fist
an' looked so at him, (here Mr. Pike favored ns
with a most diabolical erpreraiun),lut hauled in
his horns about the quieltest, an' handed me
a pint of the stuff as perlite us could be. Well,
I tasted d mouthful of an' found it tool
as the north side o Bethel bill in January. Pd
half a mind to spit it out, but just then I seed
the confectioner chap grionin' behind the door,
Which ris my spunk flail smash it 41, thinks
I, not let that white-livered Mftkey 'think
I'm afeard—l'll eat the plaguey stuff . 'if it, Nemo

admit the' I'd got a steam, ingen itaarke -shingles
in me. I pot down on a cheer, and bent myself
up like a nut.cracker, thiakin' I'd grin and Lev
it; but I could't set still—l twisted and squirm
ed about like an angle worm on a hook, till at
last the chap what gin me the cream, who had
bin lookin' on snickerio', says he to me—
" Mister," says be, "what ails per?"
"Ails me 1" says I, "that 'ere stuff of you'll'

"You eat too much," says he.
"I tell ye, I didn't," screamed I; "I know

Be cottoned right down, and said he didn't
mean any hurt, and asked me if I hada% Ceder
take some gin. I told him I would. So I took
a party good horn and left the shop,
"Amer I got. out," oontinued Ethan, felt
better for a mini' or so. 1314 I hadn't gone fur
'fore the pipes took me agin; so I went into
another shop and took some more gin • then I
sot down on the State House steps, and fiery I
sot and sot,, but didu't feel a mite better. I be
gun to. think I was goin' to kick the bucket, and
thou I thought of father and mother and old
Spanker—that's father's boss--aud when 1 thcit
I should never ace 'em again, 1 fairly blubbered
But then 1 happened 1., look up, and see a dozen
boys grinnin' and tofllo' at cue, t tell yer what,
it ris my dander—that had got down below sera
—rite up agin, I sprung at 'em like a wildcat,
heleriu' out I'd shako their tarsal gizzards out,
and the way the little deriliViteampered was a
caution to uokboily. But after the "Bement of
the race was over, I felt wus agin, and I pouldn't
kelp groanin' aud bererehin' as I went along.
At hest l thought ; I'd go to the theatre, but
afore I got there the gripes, gut so strops that I
bad to go behind a nieetia' house and lay down
and holler Artvr a while I got up and west
into a shop aud eat ball a dollar's worthof lijed
Liters with four pickled euireumbera, and wooed
sp with a glass of brandy. Then I west up is
to the theatre and seed the playa, but I felt se
that 1 welds's. itee any fun is 'em, for I don't
think the esters and commuters did me any
good. I eet damn,. (ilk dove, and stood up, but
still itsrest os, , gripe, gripe. I groaned all the
tstee, , -sesd ouee 'in a while I was Ailed to
screech kinder easy. Everybody stared alma,
and somebody call out, "Aura him out 1" epee or
twice. Bat, at kat, Just as the nigger Ortitello
was going to put the pillar oat his wife's fuse to
smother her, there come, such a twinge through
me, that 1 really thought / was •bustis up, mid
