Mark Hunt's wife, and as happy a wife
as could be found in all America. My
'husband was a mechanic, Ihnid iplenty
, of work, and was fond of me. `.Co ''be

serious, fond of ehureh-going and such

but after all, 1 never fretted over It.
I had never been discontented for
more than a moment or two, I believe,
until the day when Bess Creamer ran
into my little kitchen, to show me • a

and to tell me all about the grand

out " Why, Ann 'Hunt, don't, say you

All my frfenchi were going to that ball,
It seemed, and I felt slighted and wretch
ed. When Mark went away with his
carpet-bag in his :hand, I scarcely kiss
ed him.
MI knew all about it, and his saying
nothing, but just looking at me is that
cool, disapproving way, made me ang
riest of all, and I had a 'plan in my
mind that made me asham-ed to look
.my husband in the face besides. For,
'you see, I had found the twol ball tick
ets in Mark's coat, and had made up
my mind to use them. Go I would,
, and for once enjoy myself. So the mo
,ment the train in which .31 - ark went
had rattled away out of sight, I took ,
'my purse and ran down into the village
to buy my little finery and to tell every
one 1 also was going to the Carpenters'
ball. Then I gave the children an ear
ly supper, put them to bed in a litirry,•
poor little things, and sat up ,all night
to make my headdress and re-trim my
dress—for the ball \vas 0)01 very nest
evening—and I went to bed - worn out
and awoke late with a head-ache.
The day before I had sent a note to a
cousin of mine, a ne'er-do-well,lyhO
was always idle;" and asked him to ,be
come my escort. And he' came after
dressed out ,to go, and all was rea
dy but old Jane, the washer-woman,
who had'engaged to mind the ehildrep.
Go until she came I could not, and as
it grew late I fretted and fumed and so
did Cousin Will. But at last she came
blundering into the kitchen, smelling
of liquor, and very loquacious. She
had "been to her eon Sin s baby's funer
al," she said, and it was plain to -be
seen she was not quite sober.
"I daren't go and leave her, Will," I
But Will cried :
" Come—i-t's too late now to go back.
Nothing will happen to your yo un g
ones, Ann." , ,
And I let myself be hurried into the
hacK he had hired. After that I had
net emelt peace, for the vision of old
Jane dropping, my poor batty wall con
tinually before my eyes.
Still there was seine triumph in go the ball, and once there I danced
with everybody who,asked me.
" You loot: ike a girl of eighteen..—
Nobody would ever guess you were so

Will. And I was foolish to feel pleas

and had not Lieen since I heard of the
I danced away my anxiety about the
baby as well as I could, and at last sup:-
pet:time came. -The young fellow Co
whom Will had introduced_ me took nie
down. There was a crowd around._ the
table, of course, and while we Ny'e - re
making our way towards our seats we
had to stand awhile jammed in be

I waited to hear no more.
" Get me out—let Ine go," I screamed
to my companion. "It's where I live,"
and .1 fought back through the crowd,

On a dark night in the month of Oc
t9ber, I left my place of business in the
city of Montreal, and started to walk
hme. My house was three miles away,
d stood alone in a very desolate spot,
th only approach to which was by a
bl ak and lonely road. Habit, howev

either fear or suspicions.
. I generally traversed the lonely road
without thinking of the length of the
way or the gloom of the scenery.
On the night of which I allude, I car
ried with me a bundle containing a
considerable sum of money. It, was
this, perhaps, that made me somewhat
nervous and cautious. For the OM
tit , ie in my life, I began to be troubled
wi li the fearS of robbery. I thought
i ,
of the dangers of the way ; of the
wi Wing road ; of the rocks that favored

At length be came to the foot ot a

What is the Talmud?

elaborate article in the Quarterly Re

gi ten by its insertion in Litte4o6. Living

the obscurity in which it haLs been so,
long shrouded, is presented by the re- 1
viewer in such a shape as to enlist thq•
attention of all thoughtful readers.—i
Paradoxical'as it' ay seem, there never
was, he • tells us, a book at once more
universally neglected and more univer
sally talked of than the Talmud. He
expresses his firm. belief that numbers

friar, Henricus Seynensis; that the Tal

work is, in fact, the body of law (Cbr
pus Juris)7. of Judaism—" an encyclo
iedia, of hay, civil and penal, ecclesias
tical and international, human and Di
vine." Its origin dates from the return
from the Babylonish captivity—" one
of theAtiost mysterious and 4nomentotu,
periods in the history of humanity is
that brief space of the exile'," from
which a previously reckless, lawless
populace returned as a band of Puri
tans. The Jewish people began now
to press around the scanty records of
their faith and history with a fierce and '
passionate love. These same documents
were gradually formed into a canon,.
which became the immediate centre of
their lives and actions. The activity
in expounding• and investigating grd
ually begat science, that assumed the
very widest dimensions, its technical
name—" Midrash "—is already contain
ed in tho Book- of Chronicles, imd in
the authorized versions is rendered by
the word "story." There had sprung
up innumerable modes of " search; lig
the Scriptures." The Talmud is the
storehouse of " Midrash," in its wider
sense and in all its branches. Meaning
in the first instance nothing but "study
and learning." ft next indicated a
special method of "learning," or rath
er arguin g ; and finally it became the
name of the great Corpus Juris of
Judaism. The Talmud is composed of
two parts—the legal and the legendary
—,Mishnah, and Gemara—the one the
product of thought, investigation and
careful comparison, and the other the
creations of fancy and imagination,
mixed with feeling and humor. The
Pentateuch remains in all cases the
background and latent source 'of the
Mishnah as the) immutable, divinely
given Constitution, the written law ;
in contradistinction to which is. the
Mishnah, togetl4?r with the Gemara,
the oral or , unwritten law. The ever
growing wants•Of the Jewish Common
wealth requires new laws and - regula
tions at every turn, and Modifications
of old laws as seen in the softening
down of the severe laws of the Pen ta
_tench. The whole process of the de
velopment of thelaw was in the ,hands
of the Scribes, who, according to the
New Testament, sat in the seat of „310-
ses. Their time ranges from the return
from Babylon down to the Greco-Syri
an persecutions, (220 B. C.) Their duty
above all was to preserve the sacred
text, and they had also to instruct -the
people, to preach in the synagogue, to
teach in the schools. After the Scribes
came the Learners or Repeaters, celled
also Master Builders from 220 B. C., to
220 A. D. "In this period fall the
Maccabean Revolution, ,the Birth of
Christ, the destruction of Jerusalem,
and the total expatriation of the .Tew, - 4."
The legal labors that belonged to this
period were never seriously interrupt
ed. 1 The highest legal assembly, the
House of JudgMent was known as the
Sanhedrin. NVhenever the New' esta
ment mentions the priests, the &litters
and the scribes together, it means the
great Sanhedrin. There were two les
ser ones. The law in the old and es
pecially in ,the new Testament has a
much wider meaning than that • which
is commonly given to it.. It "sends fdr
all and every knowledge, since all and
every knowledge was reqnsite for the
understanding of it," and hence to-be
come a member of the Sanhedrin re
quired an extensive acquaintance with
existing literature and science. The
Sanhedrin formed the - crowns and
highest consummation of the schools
and academies, which were spread
throughout the length and breadth of

pulSory: An exalted place was alo
given to work in connection with lear t

mcyous points of contact between the
Netw Testament and Talmud.. " Stich
terns as ' redemption ,I - , baptism;' grace,
' rap" ], salvation,' '.regeneration,'
(situ of Man,' 'Son of God,' 'kingdom
of Heaven,' were not, as we arc apt to
think, invented by Christianity, but
were 'household words of talmudical
.Tudaism to which Christianity._ gave a
higher meaning." The' general char
aelei of time pal code of the Talmud is
humane in' the extreme. Of the "Hag
gahati;" or legendary and imaginativo
part of the Millltld, we . have no wom
to speak. The work of reducing the
bulkof orditrances, injunctions, iiro

three different periods, but was only
accomplished the last time by jelmita,
the Saint, 200 A. D.

The ship Gen: Grant, of Boston, sail- ,
ed from Australia for Loridon on May
4, 1866; with a load of freight, including
2,576 oz. of gold, fifty-s 4 passengers,
and a crew of twenty-seven persons,
and was thought to have been lost, as
nothing had been beard from her up to
the 21st of November, 1607, when a por
tion of her crew were discovered in a
boat while, putting of from Enderby
Island; the most northeastern of the.:
Auckland 'lsland grotp,; lying south of 1 4
New Zealand, by the whaling brig Am
herst, of I4vercarill, N. Z.
These men, wh had been living on
an uninhabited i land for more than
eighteen shonths, in a. style less com
fortable, though no less eventfal than
that of Robinson Cruse% furnished the
following narrative of the - faM of the
vessel, and; their sad experience:
The Auckland ISlands were sighted
nine days after' the vessel--sailed,--and'
while nearishore the ship :was carried
by a heavy; swell, - in .a . dead calm', to
wards the shore, and struck upon a rock.
Though it vas pitch dark, the crew be
canle aware that she was settling into
one of those immense, rocky caverns,
which abound 911 that coast. By means
of lamps hung out from the ship, they_ .
disbovered nothing but rocks „towering'
high above thelhasts, and surrounding
them on every side. Soon the royal
and topmasts and lower masts came
down, successively , breaking down
masses of rock, whichi broke the deck
in nieces. At dawn the boats *ere got
out. Two of them were swamped and
lost, with 'nearly all in them. The .
other two, after much peril, succeeded
in inding a,flanding place and got safely •_
to 1,, nd, 'with a portion of theprovisions
while() they had saved froM the wreck.
One of their', first anxieties on securing
a landing WilS to raise a fire. They bad •
but one luctter match among them all;
and it became almost a question of life ,
and death hew that match should serve
'them. The lgreatest care was taken to
procure kindling stuff; and to protect
the precious( flame- when first raised;
Andgthey Were successful; and the fire
kindled on that day was not allowed to
go Out for nearly eighteen months. -IThe
'text day they discovered some old huts,
which had •Idouhtless• afforded shelter
'for other sufferers,andgathered limpets,
and killed four seals on the beach at
Enderby Island. Their fishing food,
brought on dysentery,. and greatly re
duced them, and caused terrible suffer , .
lug. But gradually they rallied, and
began_to adapt themselves to their new
position. They managed to 'eatch,seals
enough to live 013,. and contrived 'to
work np their skins Ant° garments and
slices. They succeeded in makinsome
salt. They round rabbits on one f the
islands ; lacy also thgcovered wit pigs,—
which bast, keen left py some pr wous
occupants of that islakid, and by earns
of air ing,eniou:i sort ( f hook con rived
to catch a number. ' They found other
hilts, atid - ,oine tools, nd finally became
quite comfortably but died with food.
.2iiii, their longings for deliverance
were. incessant, and hey adopted va
rious eNpedientst to at act the attention .
of ii?iSitlll, vessels. 33ut all iu vain—
though once or twice vessels passed
within sight of them—until the time of
their delivi‘ranee by the Amherst. Pre
viously to this, one of the boats, with •
fourot the shipwrecked men, put to sea ,
jn the hopelof reaching New Zealand;
but as' noilline; had been heard from
tin in, ii i., feared that they perished at
sea. 'tile - Amherst was first discovered
from the k=litud Nov. 10, and the signal
, tire Was lighted; but this did not attract
the notice of the brig, find on the 21st
the sitip‘ manned their
boot and pot out to intercept thb vessel,
which the}' fortunately succeeded in
iloirn_;. 1114 were kindly -received on
board th 2 Amherst, and taken to South
ZeaLtiol, :VIZ., where they were hospi. •
hay et tertained. Among —the lost
were the eai l , itain of the Gen. Grant, W.
11. Laughlin, of New York,•and second -
otliecl , 13". F. Jones,
of Massachusetts.
The boat which it is feared is e lost, '
contained Bartholomew BroWliqggehiel

tett . .7;cott, Andrew Morrison, and Peter

was Jilt. '2l 1867. - --- -___
