Hrsons, itparciitly olficlalt, came forth, and,
after holding counsel together, seemed In send

licfore there came, ptithing nside the crowd, a
man of alxiut forty years of age, with hit head
unshaven (after ihc ancient Chinese fashion),
who, making hi? way to where Wataubiyauwc
stood, thus addressed him In the Chinese
" What is your worship's country, and what
fate has driven von In these shines ?"
To which Wnuuhiyauuc, also speaking in
Chinese, nmle answer: "I am a native of
Nagasaki in Gteat Japan, nnd have betn

which von cannot but have heard tell: it is
the 1-ntid of t'eicnnial Youth and Life. It is
divided from the shores of the Middle I'lowcry

man to reach it unless endowed with special
knowledge. Like yourself, 1, who now stand
speaking to jnu, came originally from aluoad.
I am he who, in the world of mortals, hoic
the name of Jivnfuku, and served Shikuwaii
tci, king of Shin, in China. Thit Shikuwaii
tci, who wat a violent and foolidi prince,
chose to institute a search for the elixir of life.
Ihc task devolved upon me; and, after many
dangers and troubles, I finally managed to
reach this place. Hut considering that, even
were I tn return with the elixir, n prolonged
service under so unrighteous a prince as was
Shikuvvautci could scarcely end otherwise than
in unhappincss, I at once determined to re

since, living on during several hundreds of
years without the slightest diterioration cither
in my physical powers or in my appearance.
If you will elect to pursue the same course,
you may ptolong for ever a life lli.it is subject

The chief feature of life in this country was,
as Yasauhi)auwc observed, the absence both
of deaths and of births One death might,
indeed, occur once in every thousand or couple
of thousand sears, and would lie compensated
by one biith. Hut thit was only a rare ex

Nnw jnti must know that at In this country
there wcie no such phenomena nt ilctilh or
disease, none of the ieoplu knew what death
or disease fill like, though liny were much
given to speculating on the subjiit. Some
few volumes of Ihc lluddhlst Scilpluien, lint
hid bein brought over in ancient lime fiom
Indli nml China, described heaven in such
glowing trim that they wete filled with rpitti
n dcspciatc ndmlrattoii for death, and .1 dis
taste for their own never-ending existence i
so much so that when, ns a rare exception,
nny of their coiiiitiymeu chaucul to die, hi-
was envied in the same manner nt in Japan
would be envied one who should have oh'
tained innnoitnlity. 'I hey studied Ihe "ail of
dentil " ns it were the nit of magic, retiring to
mountain district nnd to secluded valley
whete they subjected Ihcnisclies to nil ininner
of ascitic privations, which, however, rarely
obtained for them Ihc ttctln.il cfficl. In the
matter ol food, all such articles as ginseng,
wild mtatoes, eels, wild-duck, etc., which in
crease the action of the kidneys and strengthen
the spleen nml stomach, win- feared nnd
avoided as being iisnnously life-giving,
vvheiias what people of rank and consulcia
lion highly prired and ilclighlid In vvitc such
viands ns wete likely to cause Ihe eaters
death. Thus, nnrmalds were uiiusiiilly client)

Hut nobody who was nnylimly would icmcU
with the tips of his fingers a fish so apt to
mison you to life ; and it was accordingly lift
to Ihc lowest of the (lopulacc. The globe-fish
was a inuch-cstccmed fish, commanding n high
price; and a favorite dish to set before the
most honored guests was a broth made of this
fish nml iKiwdetcil over with soot. Huckwhcal
macaroni setved up with watirniclon-juice was
another, while at similar dainties may be
mentioned raw eels, spinach with a dressing
of tooth-blacking, and sea-weed jelly sprinkled
with -iuliiy:iiisaii (a medical powder). A
dinner of globe-fish sprinkled with soot, or of
pickled enntharides, would not, of course, in
this Land of Perennial Youth nnd Life,
actually kill a man. Hut still the poison
would have a certain slight effect, making him
ficl giddy for half an hour or so, and giving
him sensations as pleasurable as those experi
enced by us Japanese after drinking rice-beer.
"Ah I" he would exclaim, "this is what death
must ficl like ! I feel my head turn round !"
and he would clap his hands, and dance and
sing, and believe himself to have attained Ihc
vciy acme of felicity. At New Year, nho,
and at the other major festivals, they would
stand their screens upside down, hang their
shop-cutiaius inside out, wear light blue cere
monial dresses over white uniler-ganncns,
while, in particularly superstitious families,
the New Year's Day visitors' liook would be
Inscrilied with the words "A liicurd of
Kigtctn." If, in trying to say something
flattering about a friend's child, n caller wcte
lo rcmaik on its apparent healthiness, both
father and mother would remember his words
with uneasiness; whereas, if he should sayi
"The little thing doesn't look as if it would
live long," he would give the parents the
greatest plcnsuie, and they would reply:
"Ah I if only what you say may come true I"
Wataubiyauwc, Vjho, during the hrsl twenty
or Ihlity years of his residence hi the countiv
had marvelled at, and Inwardly ridiculed, the
opinions of the inhabitants on this point, and
had esteemed himself foitunatc lieynnd all
measure In having aitived at .1 country where
disease and death wnc unknown, was gtadu
ally converted to the native notions during a
sojourn of two or three bundled years. The
prospect of never-ending life, day after day
and year after year, began to lull on him,
while death became all ihc more attractive for
being 10 difficult of attainment. Kesolrlng to
put an end to hit existence, he thtcvv himself

ttut lo I up he rose to ihc tuiface without the
slightest hull, and walked on the water mi
exactly as if it 1ml twi-n a road on dry land,
that not all his endeavors to sink himself
would sink liim, So, seeing that this plan
wai of no avail, he climbed up a Mty moun
tain, ami tlncn himself down front a iieuk
sevital myriad lalhoius high, lint In I down
he came on his feel without cvtn turning a
toiiitisjuli in the air, at if he had been a cat
springing off a 100I. Try as lie might, mild
he grew ucatyof trying, nothing would suc

of llichiiiond. The general assault iimmi Lee's
lines licfore that city took place on Ihc 2nd,
nml its occupation by the Union armies on the
3rd. The last-named day has another and not
inferior distinction as the birthday of Washing
ton Irving. Sir Ilcnty llavelock, the lictoof
Lucl.now, was horn on the 5th, The fith wit

times the famous- storming of lloitajoz, vvheic

and that of Admiral Kodney's famous sea-fight
with the I'tcnch Count Ui Grassc, which, re

or the defeat and death of Warwick, "the
Kin-maker,"at llarnet, during the Wars of the
Isoses has acquired a wider and sadder renown
from the murder of President Lincoln. On

Count Tilly. On the 16th, the Hussiin Nihil
ist Karaknzolf, made his aliortivc attempt to
shoot the present "Sar, 1 800.) and Garibaldi
landed in Sicily. The iSth witnessed the ex
ecution of Tantia Topee, one of Iheinost prom
inent actors in the SeHiy mutiny of 1S57.
The 191I1 is doubly famous for the battles of
Lexington and Concord and for the death of

of the heroic Count Lally, the last and bravest
defepder of Ihc French power in India, marks
the 22 1, which has the additional distinction of

gular coincidence, has the two-fold renown of
being Ihc birthday nnd death-day of Shakes

Hooks arc made to order at as low
rales as arc consistent with Tint-class
work. The Hindery is now using
Weston's " Record " and
(taper for all first-class work. A large
invoice of this justly celebrated stock
has just been received from New Vork
Tiik Machinukv Usui is all ol
improved iattcrn. The " ruling ma
chine," with its new patent " striker,"
is equal to any in use in cither the
United States or the Colonies, and its
recent work speaks for itself, being,
also, complimentary to the workmair

machines used in the Hindery arc for
