A TALK WITH A MUMMY.
The record of my talk with the
mummy broke off at the point
where, on learning his identity, 1
was so carried away with excitement
thnt I wanted to do homage to the
queer-looking object before me, and
he stopped me in such an uncere
When we were both reseated,
Polliodorus said, "I am glad to find
myself in the society of a literary
gentleman, one of my own profes
sion, and would like to have some
further talk with you. I am
curious to learn something about
.your conutry, for judging from your
own grotesque habilaments you must
be a singular people ; and as you say
you have never been in Egypt I will I
be pleased to impart any informa
tion that you may desire about the
people of my time. But before
proceeding let us Till up for another
6moke, old fellow ; and if there's a
little stimulant handy, out with it,
and we'll have a smile, for it seems
to me that the words of Belshazzar
to Nebuchadnezzar la long time
between drinks' are very appro
priate just now. Let's be jolly for
once, and I will talk to you like an
Egyptian brick of the Ptolemaid."
"What! did they smoke tobacco
in Egypt during the reign of the
"To be sure they did. It first
came from Arabia long before the
time of Moses. You have nothing
new in these days, and are far be
hind ours in the arts and sciences.
You know the words of the Hebrew
philosopher, 'there is nothing new
under the sun.' He was no fool, 1
tell you. Your inventions arc only
the revival of Eastern civilization
and ingenuity,- destroyed by the in
roads of Scythian barbarians. So
perished the Far East so perished
the splendor of Egypt. In my time
Alexandria was hastening to decay.
The Government was corrupt, the
people were conceited and apathetic,
the executive ofllccrs were men of
money without brains, mere specu
lative impostors, the revenue was
absorbed in extravagant public
buildings, agriculture was oppressed
by heavy exactions, and so on. The
political state of Alexandria at that
time was significantly said to be a
gross tyranny tempered by ridicule."
"You astonish me! I had always
believed that the tyranny of those
rulers was absolutely without tem
pering, and that no man dared to
whisper a word of anything except
absolute approval of all they did.
What kind of men had the audacity
to provoke the wrath of the power
ful wassailing their tyranny with
"That's where your belief was
astray. There were men in Alex
andria at the time I speak of who
had the gumption to understand
things as they were. These men
were the enemies of injustice, false
hood, and power misused. They
were the banditti of literature, the
depredators of quackery in learning,
nciencc, politics, and religion. They
attacked hypocrisy and fraud, and
asserted the political rights of the
people by appealing to the wit and
to the humorous sentiments of their
countrymen, rather than trust to
their reason nnd common Seine,
which were deadened nnd debauched
by the general prolllnney l the age.
They conveyed the axioms of truth
through the medium of btirh"iuc,
and the bitterness of reproof under
the gliding of imaginary analogy.
These were the men whtno intelli
gent ridicule tempered the tyranny
of a brainless aristocracy. And 1
would further inform you, my
friend, that your humble servant,
Polliodonw, did his share of service
In this line. I laughed at, their
hypocritical assumption?. In ruy
belief their pretensions and their
priestcraft were all sham anil hum
bug. The claims of truth, justice,
anil reason, we, the Arabs of litera
ture, admitted and defended, but
sham and humbug, in high as well
as low places, particularly in the
former, we regarded and treated
with unmeasured contempt."
1 could keep silent no loner. My
admiration for the dessicated image
before me had heightened at. every
sentence he uttered, until at this
stage I felt, unable to restrain my
self, and involuntarily exclaimed:
"Polliodorus, you are stunner; give
me your Hipper, old boy. You are
the very person 1 have been looking
for. lo. these many years. At last
I have found you. My name is
Antishamus, which you as a scholar
know means the ememy of sham. 1
claim you as a close though an an
cient and revered relative. You are
a man ot great mental staturc-I am
merely an infant; but we both be
long to the same order, you at the
top, and I at the bottom. Come
with mo, and teach the art of poli
tical economy to the people of the
Hawaiian Kingdom, who have ar
rived at the conclusion that they
want something, without being able
to identify the necessity."
"Thanks, my friend," said Pollio
dorus ; but I do not want to enter
into any rash engagement. Let me
fill mv pipe again, and make some
inquiry about the country, its rulers
and its people, and 1 will then de
cide whether to accept your invita
tion or not. Has Hawaii any natural
resources and advantages?"
"Decidedly so, in great profu
sion. Hawaii was made to be the
paradise of a happy people. The
climate is splendid, and the soil pro
lific. The region extends from the
seashore, where there is a perpetual
summer, to elevations where winter
ever reigns, and between breakfast
and supper you can with ease pass
from one to the other, with all the
intermediate gradations of a Turkish
bath. Luscious fruits grow wild on
the mountains and in the valleys.
The soil is capable of producing in
abundance a great variety of articles
of commerce. You have but to
scratch the ground, thrust in small
bits of sticks, go to sleep till
harvest, and then gather a crop of
sugar, six and seven tons to the
acre, of a quality that takes the
highest prize at the great exhibitions
of all nations. And"
"Hold on, Mr. Antishamus ; that's
enough about the country. Why, you
are describing Kden, or the Garden
of the Ilesperides. We thought the
Valley of the Nile a marvel of nat
ural production, but Hawaii takes
the shine out of us altogether. It
must he a wealthy nation?"
"The wealth is in possession of a
few ; the bulk of the common peo
ple haven't ten cents amongit
"Your population must be enor
mous?" "About a half a man to a square
mile. The principal part ot our pop
ulation consists of cattle, sheep,
turkeys, and extreme eastern Asia
tics, neither of which has the slight
est Knowledge of Egyptian or more
"You alluded to the wonderful
sugar capabilities of the country.
The planters, must be very wealthy
"Many of them are. They start
ed with nothing, and acquired riches
that astonished themselves, through
being given a kind of bonus on
their sugar by a very generous
"Men who acquire liches in this
way usually become arrogant, nnd
swell to a si.c too great for their
clothes, lfow is it with your plan
ters?" "Well, 1 cannot say that they
are an exception to the rule. A few
of them are modest and unpreten
tious, but others arc not burdened
with these commodities, and set
themselves up as 'The People,' like
the three tailors of Tooley street."
"What kind of a government is
there in the county?"
"Constitutional government. That
is, government based on a first law
to which all other laws arc supposed
to conform, and which may bo in
terpreted to suit exigencies "as they
artso or tho prejudices of the inter
preters." "Have they trial by jury f"
"I should' smilo! Trial by jury
is one of our most glorious institu
tions. Jurymen are selected witli
great care and wisdom, consequent
ly our juries aro noted for ignorance
of law, for personal prejudices, and
incapacity to decide according to
evidence; and as a consequence
when a white-headed old sire is
charged with 'breach of promise,'
tho jury on the unsupported testi
mony of tho arttul and cunning gal
interested renders a verdict for 8 10,
"Oh! Oh!!! Oh!! Sacramento!
Babylon! Memphis! livery place,
everything that is hacred! Where
am I? What have 1 done that I
should have all this heaped upon
me? It is more than I can endure!"
After n Ions silence, during which
I felt profoundly nu,ilnled by the
evidently deep cinolioiisof Polliodo
rus, he recovered himself, nndnsl.ed
mo many questions, wlilcii I answer
ed to the best of my ability, but
tth'ch 1 will not now detail, but
will simiilv relate the concluding
part of the interview. "I would
ask," said he, "who makes your
"A very honorable company or
gentleuieircallcd the Legislature."
"They arc u capable body?"
"Very much to. In sixty days
they turn outfullyn half dozen laws
so remarkable tor ambiguity that 1t
lakes fifty Philadelphia lawyers
sixty years to understand thrin."
"What are their special qualifica
tions?" "Gas, cab, and gammon."
Here the mummy shouted with
great vehemence, "Oh, Justinian!
Oh, S.uiied Smoke! Let me back
to the tyranny of Phebes poets,
wits, philosophers, and gentlemen I
Anything before what you describe!
Take your uibbish!"
So "saying, my new hat was un
ceremoniously pitched across the
room, my Sunday coat blasphemous
ly maltreated, pipe and tobacco
dashed on the floor, and Polliodorus
turned heels over head into his
"Cover me up look sharp. Put
the lid on quick. Coniound your
line country with your tin-pot con
stitution, say I. Let me go!"
"Here's an embalmed cat and two
stuffed monkeys, a part of your pro
perty," said J.
"Oh, drat the cats and monkeys!
Take them for ministers, or judges,
or legislators, or what you please.
They will sen o adtuiiably for such
purposes. On vith the iirt, old fel
lah. You don't sell Polliodorus again,
not if I know it!"
Reluctantly I closed the sarcopha
gus, and all was silence. 1 have
often seen the mummy since, but
Polliodorus speaks no more.
