In the south of China, the natives form
no reguiar cemeteries or churchyards, but
the tombs of the dead are scattered all over
tha a des of the hills, generally in most
pletaant situations. v Tt.e more wealUiy
gfncrally convey their dead to a considera

again in its windinga, ho shall honors, and
riches, and everything wliich they can desire,
Cow into their possesion. These follow
are generally giuat roguts, and play ujion
the prejudices of tho jvwple. It frequently
happeni that aftor intorment hits taken place
for sonir time, they call upon the relatives,
and inform them that for wine cause, it is
absolutely necessary to "remove and re-inter
the body. Should the relations object to
this, die answer ia, "Very well, I don't
care : but your ihfldren and relations will
also be rcgurdless of you when you die, and
you will be miserable in your graves.'
The feelings of the jwor deluded Chine?
are thus wrought upon, and a further sum
of money is extracted in the finding of a
more suitable grave for the relative in juen
tion. In my traveU in the south of China, I
often came upon graves in tne most retired
places amonrat the hills; they were all lew
or more ot tha same lonn, namely, a hull
circle cut out of the hill &de,havinr the
body interred behind it. SoziieUmesis indeed
generally, there were several of these half
circles with a sut cession ot terraces in Iront
of the grave ; and in the casts of die more
wealthy, the semi circles were built of brick
or stone.and on radier a more exiei jive s; ale.
In the centre of the tui-cii-le, and of course
close to the body, the gravestone is placed
with its inscription. M. Callcry, who is an
excellent Chinese scholar, informed me that
these inscriptions are of the most simple kind,
merely statin e the name of the deceased,
that he died in such a dynawy, in such a
year, this is the p3in and unfiatterin,
ale which the Chinese tombstone tells, atii
might, pei naps, oe a useiui lesson to tnosr?
who are so fond of flattering on tombstones
I. I I a
in our own country. In some instances, I
cannot tell if in alL afier the body has
decayed, the bones are dug up, and careful ly
put into earthen ware cans and placed on
the hill side above ground. These, as wirll
ts the graves, are visited at stated times 'by
the relaures; they go first to the patnarcn,
or father of a tribe, and then to the otlirrs
ia rotation ; there they perform their devo
tions, offer incense, and dine together after
the ceremonies are over.
A the traveller proceeds northward, the
circular form of constructlm; :he tombs is
less common, and they become more varied
in their appearance. In Chusan, Xingp'io,
aivl varioi o.hei plat es in tint district, a
great propor.len of die coffins are placed on
the surface of the ground, ar.d merely thatch
ed over with straw. You meet these cof5ns
in all sorts of places, on the sides of the
public highway, on the banks of river and
canals, in woods and other retired pans of
the country. Sometimn the thutch is com
pletely eff, ihe wood rotton, and the remains
of the Chinamen of former days ex-tosed to
view. On one hiil a'.de on ihe island of
Chusan, skulls and hones of tlillneit kimls
ar lying about in all directions, and more
than once, when ' warHlerirg through the
long brushwiod, I have found injseif with

Bur. the most curious tomb of all, was
one I met with during a journey in the in
terior, near the town of Lun-kiang fx. It
was placed on the side of a hill, and eri.
dently belonged to some very wealthy or
importont personage, in that city. From
the base of the hill to where the tomb was,
which was about half way up, the visitor
ascends by abroad flight of sieps, on each
side of which a number of figures caned
out of stone weie placed. As far as I can

All literature is full of anecdotes illustra
tive of these encouraging trudis; a single
fact now occurs to me which I have never
seen recorded ; I have often worshipped
in a Baptist meeting house in crniout,
whereon, at its construction, some thirty
years since, a studious and exemplary young
man w as for some time employed as a car
penter, who afterw ards qualified himself and
entered upon the lesponsibilitius of d e

critics in America.
I propose, here to set forth a few impoit
ant maxims for tlu guidance and encourage
ment of those youth who will hearken to
me maxims bnaed on mv own irrunatuie
experience and observation, but wfcicb have
doubtless in substance been proi.ojnJed and
enforced by older and wiser men long ago
and oltcn. "Mill, as meydo not yet appear
to have exerted ttieir iuJl and proper etlret
on the ripening intellect of the country as
thousands on thousands are toimmcly,
pa.nfully strusrghng forward in the race Ku

ance of their scope and spirit 1 will hope
mat tlieir presentation at this tune cannot
be without some effect on at least a few
expanding minds. Thev ore as follows :
I. Avoid the common error of estecmin
a college education necessiry to tiscfulnow
or eminence in lite.
may oe desiralno and ientlieial to many
it doubtless is so. Hut Creek and Latin
ore not real knowledge; they are only the
nuans of acquiring sudi knowledge; tin re
have Inen peat, and wise, and surpassim;
ils tul men, in all age, wLo knew no litu
gu.vip nut ineiriiintner tongue. ite.Mie.s, in
our day the treasures of ancient and con
temporary foreign literature are brotht
home to every man s door by translation
which embody tho sulwtance if they do not
exhibit all the beauties of ihe originals. If
your circumstances in li'e enable von to
enjoy the ad vantages of a college education,
do not neglect them aloe all, do not
misimprove them. Rut if your lot be dif
ferent, wane no time in idle repining.' in
humiliating beary. The stem, self-re
specting independence of your own soul is
worth whole shelves of classics. All men
cannot and need not be college bred not
even those who are Um to instruct and
improve their kind. You ran never In?
justly deemed ignorant, or your aoquire
menrjs contempuble, if you embrace and
fully iiiiprove the opportunities which are
fairly offered you.
II. Avoid likewise the kindred and wi-
mcious error'that you must have a profession
must be a clergyman, lawyer, doctor, or
something of the sort in order to be infiu
ential, useful, respected or, to state the
case in its best apect, that you may lead
an intellectual life. Nothing of the kind is
necessary very far from it. If your ten
dencies are intellectual if you love knowl
edge, wisdom, virtue, for themselves you
will grow in them, whether you earn your
bread by a profession, a trade, or by tilling
the ground. .Nay, it may lie doubtetl
whether the farmer or mechanic who devotes
his leisure hours to intellectual pursuits from
a pure love of them lias not some ndvanta
ges therein tivcr the professional man. lie
comes to his book at evening with his head
clear and his mental sppetite sharpened by
the manual Libors, tax n? lichi.lv the Fpint
or Drain ; while the lawyer, who has bo.cn
running over dry old books for precedents.
the doctor, who has been racking his wits
tor a remedy adapted to some new modin
cation of disease, or the divine who, immured
in his closet, has been busy preparing his
next sennon, may well approach the eve
ning volume with senses iaded and Dalled
There arc few men, and perhaps fewer
women, who do not spend usclesjly in sleeo
or play, or frivolous employments, more
time than would be required to render them
at thirty well versed in history, philosophy
ethics, as well as physical sciences, &c.
III. Neither is an advantageous location
essential to the prosecution of ennobling
sieuics, or 10 an lnteuoctuai nie ; on this
pouit misapprehension is very prevalent and
very pernicious. A youth lorn in some
ruri I or but thinlv settled district, where
books arc few and unfit, and the means of
intellectual culture apparently scanty; feels
witlin, him the spirit of inquiry, a cravin?
to acquire and to know aspirations for an
intei leqtuaj. .condition above the dead level
around him. At once hu iiunps to the
conclusion that a change of place is neces

seminar)', at least to the city or viliage.
He fancies lie must alter his whole manner

with the aerations awakened within him
hat he must become, if not an author, a
!)rrc5sor, a lawyer, at least a merchant, or
bllower of 60mo calling unlike that of his
father. ,. . , . , t . . '. ' .
Wiapped in this delusion be - betakes
himstlf to the city's dusty ways, where
foonei or later the nature and extent of his
mislaie breaks upon him. If he finds rat-i
isfactory employment and 'rs prospered in .the
wayol lifd which fc prefers, the' cares and

of the soul ensues in which satisfaction of
the physical appetite becomes th aim of

trader, and. the gathering of shining dusr
made the great end of his being.
Hut what shall the youth do who finds his
means of intellectual culture inadequate to
his wants I hesitate not to say that he
should cbeaTE more and better just -where
he is. Not that 1 would have him reject
any real opport unity or proffer of increased
facilities which may open before him. I
will not say' that he should not accept a
university education, the means for studying
for a profession, if such should come fairly
in his wcy, and be seconded by his own
inclination. But I do insist that nothing
of this SOrt is ESSENTIAL tO tllC gfCUt CI id 1
has or should have in view namely, self
culture. To this end it is only needful
that he should put forth fully the towers
within him, and rightly mould die circum
stances by which ho Is surrounded. Are
the books within reach few and faulty? let
hiin purchasr a few of the very best, and
study them intently and thoroughly. He
who is acquainted with (he writings of a
very few'V'thc world's master spirits can
never after be deemed ignorant or undevel
oped. To know intimately the Bible and
!Shake.peare, and the elements of history
and the physical sciences, is to have unbill
ed the subs:ance of all human know ledge.
That knowledge may be presented in a
thousand vjritd, graceful, and attractive
forms, and the variations may be highly
agreeable and useful nay, they are so.
But, d.ough they may .mprove, refine and
fenalize, (so ui speak,) they do not make
the MAN. If he has the elements within
liim, no future hour of solitude can be lone
some, or tiresome, or profitless. The mild

significance, and more imprecsivc than the

There is no spectahle which nature can
offer to us tnore beautiful than the sunset of
an Eastern clime. It is beautiful ; yet how
unlike the not less lovily perishing of the
day in our ow n land, when the sunbeams
linger on the ereen fields and gushing
streams, as though they mourned to leave
the sweet earth they had gladdened with dieir
smiles, Ion? after the pale, timid stars have
come stealing forth, one by one, from the
depths ol the unfathomable. In die East,
it is a magnificent sight to see the sun going

At the appointed hour I attended at the
church, and was surprised at the small num.
ber the exciting scene had assembled. a
rious were the stories of the past life and
fortune of the fair being who was this day
to take the v-iil, which were told in whis.
pers by those assembled. All, however, ac
corded that hers bid been a life marked by
events so full of sorrow, that her history was
not listened to without deep emotion. By
his own hand, or by casual ity, he had passed
away, and she, weary of a lifu which he
couJd not share, now sought shelter in a
sanctuary, where the afflicted may weep in
silence, and where, if sorrow be not asnuaged,
in tears are hidden. All awaited the mo
ment of her entrance with anxious impa
tience; every eye was directed towards her
with an expression of the deejiest interest.
Splendidly adorned and attended by the
Princess Harberini, she slowly advanced to
the seat assigned her near the altar. Her
fine form rose alove the middle stature ; a
gentle bend marked her contour, and her
full black eyes, w hich were occasionally in
pious awe raised to heaven, nd her long
dark eyelashes gave life to a cour.lenaii' e
on which resignation seemtd jiorirayed.
The places allotted to us as strangers, whom
die Italians never fail to distinguish by the
most courteous manners, were such as not
ouly to enable us to view the whole cer
emony, but to contemplate the features and
expression of this interesting being. Th..
ceremony now began, and, conducted by a
Cardinal, Le first pronounced rather a Ion;
discourse after which she passed out f the
Church and into the adjoining Convent,
which wa to be her future h'une. !She
now appeared in a small chapel of the
nunnery, divided from the church by a large
open widow, covered with an iron gTating.
and the ceremony proceeded. In the back
ground, in a blazing focus of light, stood an
altar, from which, in a diiled line, die
nuns of the community were seen, each
holding a large burning wax taper. The
jbscrvance? were numerous and imposing.
At length the solemn moment approached
w hich was to bind her vows to Heaven.
.She rose and stood a few moments U-fore
the altar, when suddenly, yet with a noise.
less action, she sank upon her kne-s. and
.he deep silence was broke 11 by the low
tones of the organ, accompanied by soft and
fieaiitifjl female voices, singing the dohTuI
requiurn. Tears were the slight expression
uf the emotion which thrilled thiough every
heart. This solemn music continued long
and fell mournfully on the ear, until, reced
ing .ns it were into the diatance, 11 gently
sank into silence. The young noviie was
then raised, aud, advancing towards the
Cardinal, she bent down, kneeling at his
feet, while he cut a lock of her hair, which
she cast from her, as a type of the ceremony
that was to deprive her of this, to her, no
longer valued ornament. Her attendant
then despoiled her of ihe rich jewels with
w hich she was adorned ; her splendid upper
vestures were throw n off. and replaced oy a
loose rone ol w rule, the nun s gnrt her
long tresses bound up, her temples covered
with fair linen, the white tiown. e 1 Mem
of innocence, fixed on her html, and the
crucifix plnittl in her hands. Tin n kneel
ing low once more before the altar, she
breathed her la vow to Heaven, at which
moment the organ and choristers bur: forth
in loud shouts of triumph. .She was then
received and embraced by the Lady Abbes:.,
and by each of the nuns in turn, whilst
their eves sparkled, and a smile seemed
struggling with the solemnity of the moment,
in expression of their innocent delight in
offeretl up her vows and became one of their
community. Il might have Urn the sub-inn
light shed cm the surrounding objects, or the
momentary charm lent by enthusiasm,
deceiving die eye and tho heart, which gave
this fair lieing a fascination more than real ;
but such were my feelings, so fixed my
attention, that when the curtain again was
drawn and their forms failed from mv view.
and I turned again towards the busy throng
and crowded street, I felt a heaviness of
heart even to pain weigh upon nie. She
shortly after appeared at the entrance of the
convent, and, apparently with a happy '
spirit, took a Imal adieu ol her fiieii L-!
from whom six4 was to be forever separated
severally offering her hand to her male
friends, while she returned the lingering
embrace of those dear to her of her ow n
sex, with that happy resignation whi-h piety
inspires, while yv-ling to a sacrifice made
to Heaven. I will not wcarv vou with a
detail of the sad reflections whiih imprxtl
me as 1 left that threshold, which she could
not again repass; but such is the illusion.

scene, which I believe he whose faith a! lows.

Iii a very scaice work tntitled. On the
Government of Cattle, gathered by Ieonard
Misa'l, chief farrier to King James, print
ed in lfjtjJ. we find the following sagacious
remedy "For a horse that ia swollen with
mu. h wind in his Iodv :" " Soni horses,
with eating certain windy meats, or such
herbs, will be swollen therewith, as though
hi Kdly would burst . and then will eat
no meat, but stand hang'ng down his head,
readv to fall, and so die, if he have not
sjieedv help. When yon shall see any
horse so. the next remedy, as I can learn,
ye shall take a sharp pointed knife, or hod- j
kin, and arm it so with some stay thnt it go I
not too deep for piercing his guts. Then
strike him therewith through the skin hr.o
the body below the hollow place of the
haunch bone, half a fixu beneath the back
bone, and the wind will co.ne out thereat.
Then, if you put a hollow quill therein, (ot
some feather to keep it open awhile.) the
wind will void the better and so heal again.
When a horse is so, some do rake him. and
some d- ride him, to make him void wind,
but diis hath been proved th? U-st remedy
to save your horse or ox." page 1ST.
In a subsequent part Master Miscall recom
mends the following recipe : " K your
horse chance to tire on the wny if spur
and wand will not profit, vou shall put
three or four round pebble stones in one of
his cars; and so knit fast his ear, that the
stone ahall not fall out, ami they will so
rattle within his ear that he will then go
faster, if he have any spirit or power.
Some do thrust a bodkin through the midst
or flap of his ear, and put therein a pin of
wood; and ever when he slacks his pace
the rider shall strike on that ear with his
wand, and to he will mend his pace there
by." Master Miscall, we think, ought to
have had his own ears nailed to die man
ger for such brutal invention.
