The exam pin was followed : nolilcmen, merchant,
poasantN, took out their nurses somo pave poldcn,
oiuo silver coin; hoiuo threw into his hat a fow
eoiuxT oonoeks ; all cave what they could, "tiod
bless you, noblo frioud I " was licanl from every
side.
The namo of this cenorous man is llaiil Marrin,
a nalira of the Uovernnient of THroslnff. Being a
roofur bv trade, ho for uianv Tears lived in at
l'etorsburifh, nursiiing his vocation ; but nfterwards
rngageil himsolf as a boilor-mukcr at the Uovern
nient foundry of Kolpino. Limt year he took leave
of ahsonco and visited his native village Having
iont a fow months with hi friends, ho was re
turning to St. lYtorsburgh by way of Moscow, to
avail himself of the railways. Iio came to the
ancient capital the day before tho fire; and, nut
having caught tho train, was obliged to remain till
tho next day. Ah this was his first arrival in
Moscow, ho took tho opportunity of seeing the
Kremlin, tho old fortress, and to visit its venerable
athcdrals. There, from some passers-by, ho heard
uf the fire, and hastened to the spot, where ho o
uobly distinguished himself.
At three o'clock in tho afternoon of tho snmo
day ho took his seat in a railway carriage. On tho
l.Jlh of tho same month ho reached St. rotersburgh,
and again enlisted himself in tho number of woi k
uion ut Kolpiuo. la two days after ho was sum
moned to the office of the general police-master of
tho eapitol, whore ho was told that tho Emperor
ilusired to seo him. lie was accordingly token to
tlm ul.icu. His Imperial Majesty received Marrin
in Ins cabinet, and was pleased to say to hiin w hen
Iio. entered. " 1 thank vuu fir a good notion. Em
brace me, ami relate how you did it." In simple
word Mirnn told his story; and, when no mushed
tho Emperor dismissed him, saying "iinr you
mav g: but in ease of need come to mo nt nny
time." Soon afterwords Marrin was rowanled
with a modal and a sum uf ouo hundred and fifty
loubles silver.
PRESERVATION OF THE EYES.
" You should never touch your eye but with your
cllsiw. ( I iveero,
Thcro is a tradition at least as old as tlio Talmud,
thit the cyos aro strengthened by drawing the
ti item across Ihoevelnls in a liorriminuil direction
Exf resident Adams, who was affootod with an
obstruction of the tear passage, used this method
to get rid uf Iho accumulated lluid, and the ancient
practice was brought into greater notice by the
examplo of (he illustriou Ktalvsmaiii The obso
lete theory, that tho interior surface of tho eyeball
iMs-oines Hatlened as ngu ailvnnccs, was again ro-
vnoil, una it beoomos a husiness to ailvertisu in-
Mruetioua for kneading llio organ iuto shape with
the lingers for tho miHlerute sum nr ten dollars.
tho tell-tiilo Kpuetiicles might bo laid asulo, and
anoiont ladies and gentlemen be enabled to sow anil
read with ull tho sharpness of a miss in her teens.
It cannot bo expected that operations founded on
ft false theory can be safe in practice. It is untrue
that the outer Muf.ico uf the eye becomes flatter
with advancing ago, nnd therefore manipulations
to restore what is wanting, in an organ so delicate
of structure tliut a rude push may bo followed by
periietunl darkness, should bo avoided. The writer
was lately called to visit an aged female, w ho had
lieon iiflcriug acutely for months, after submitting
while in hoalth to tho manipulations of a rejuven
ating itinerant. The lens was dislocated and press
ed on tho scusutivo nerves at the margin of the
pupil. Other eases of injury attributed manipula
tions, stii-U as cross-eyes, douhlod vision, &o., have
" come under the writer' notice. Last month, in
presence of tho oditor, he operated for a cataract
in tho case uf a lady, whoso vision, with tho aid uf
spectacles, wan goua until alio was induced r.y piau

After the third losnon.vission becamo indistiuot and
Isliudness ultimately followed. Ir. U. was culled
tu examine a contlomao who had alwavs enioved
Meollent fight until it waa lost in a moment. The
patient had been at a party of fiiouils, w lion a
jnsrsoB stepped auddenly behind him, and uovoring
Ixilh eyes with the hands, wished him to guess who
It Wan. The former, without speaking a word,
Cfideavored to escape from the pressure, and when
tlie eyo-lids we're oioned ho was entirely bereft of
ight. Although tlioro waa not the least uiiearanee
of injury, yot the snflbrer romuiued hopelessly
mina. from uu meuincnoiy exuinpie, i'r. u. eon
eludes that the eyca aro liublo to iiyury even from
There ia popular notion aanctionod even by
medical men, who ought to know better, that eyes
are preserved by opening thorn every moruing in a
I
bimin of eold water. Some uf the worst ca-es id
or film on I lie mi face of the eye, has
lieeu witnessed in those who lujasted of this prai-
tire. W hen a drop uf water pets into tho wind-!
pipe, the nostril, or tho ear, iiritation is produced,
and when .the eve is opened under w ater, the nen
"alien is anything but agreeable. The rye is
by a efcrclion admirably adapted to
the'iuoliniisof llio lid over its siirliu-e, and
as this secretion is partially soluablo in wnter.lt
is as inconsistent with roininoii sense to wash it
away, ns it is to remove tho oil from the wheels of
mneliiniiry.
N hen the general henhh is mlmst, it is astonish
ing what an amount of lalsir the organ of vision
will endure : yet when it is depressed, especially
by meiiUil disturbance during a periislical liim lio'ii
they nro easily ilerangeil by loo close application

THE ENGLISH PEASANT. [HOWITT.]
Tho condition of tho West Indian slave is better
and happier than that of tho English peasantry.
Ctintiiwn Asucrtinn,
The land for me, tho land for mo.
Where every living soul is free :
W hero w inter may come, whero storms may rave,
nut llio tyrant daro not bring his slave.
I should hate In dwell in a summer land
Whore flowers spring un on every hand
Whore tho breexo is glad and tho heavens arc fair,
Hut the taint of Mood is every w hero.
I saw a peasant sit in his door,
When his weekly toil in tho field was o'er ;
llo sat on the bench his grandsiro made,
Ho sat in his father's walnut shade.
'Twns tho golden hour uf an April morn j
Lightly the lark sprang from the corn,
Tho blossoming trees shono puro nnd while,
And the young loaves quivered in tho light :
Tho Sabbath bells, with a holy glee,
ore ringing o'er woodland, heath, nnd lea ;
Twns a season whoso living influence ran
Through air, through earth, and tho heart uf man.
No feeblo joy was Hint peasant's lot,
As his children gamboled before his cot,
And archly mimicked the toils nnd carea
That coming life shall make truly theirs.
But their mother, with brcakfust call, anon
fame forth, nnd their merry mask was gone;
'Twas a beautiful sight, as, meekly still,
They sat, in their joy, on tho cottage sill.
Tho siro looked on them ho looked to the skies;
I read his heart's language in his eyes ;
Lightly ho rose, and lightly ho trod,
To pour out his soul in the house of God.
And is Mm tho man, thou canting knave.
Thou hast dared to compare with the w eeping slave?
Away I find one slave in the world to cupo
With him, in his heart, his home, his hope.
He is not on thy lands of sin and pain,
Searod, scarred with tho lash, and cramped with pain
In thy burning clime, where tho heart is cold,
And man, liko tho beast, is bought and sold.
But, O, thou slanderer, false and vile,
Ihiro but to harm that garden stile
Iaro but to oitlraie that lowly thatch
laro but to oree that peasant's latch,
And thy craven soul shall wildly quake
At tho thunder peal tho doud might wake j
For a myriad tongues of firo shall sound
As if overy stone cried from the ground.
The Indignant thrill liko flame shall spread,
till tlio isle itself roeks 'ncath thy tread,
Anil a voice Irom people, and peer, and throne.
Shall ring in thine ears, Atono, otoue !
For Freedom is an equal pucBt
In princely hall and in peasant's nest ;
The palace is filled with her living light,
And sho watches the hamlet day and night.
Tho land for me tho land for mo,
Where every living soul is free,
Whcro winter may como, whero storms may ruvo,
But tho tyrant dure nut bring his slave !

OLD FOGYISM.
The stubborn cbu-s of slaml-still philosopher.
who regard fraternal democracy and rcvoliilioiinrv

have never been more happily represented than by
Im.M'xAi.i Zaiie, a Turkish Cadi. Mr. Lavanl.
in his oriental explorations at Nineveh mid flabv
Ion, addressed certain eitiiuiiic to this Cadi, !n
reference to the eoniinerco nml antiquities of the
city in which he lesnled. Tu thce queries the
Turkish philosopher replied by Iho following letter.
it is easy to imagine the II H kenug expression on
the face of our eonservalite friends, as Ihey read
this letter, not knowing nt lirst whether to laugh
at tho stupidity uf the Turk, or to compliment hi in
ns a pious oriental philosopher who has forcibly
expressed their own sentiments iu reference, to tho
folly of modern science.
"My illustrious Friend nnd Joy of mv Liver!
Tho thing you ask of mo is both dillicutt ami use

It wero unprofitable for us to inquire into it.

Who enn fail to recognize tho spirit of this res
pectable Turk in tho numerous denunciations a
gainst scieneo from Pharisaic conservative? Cran
lology was denounced ns impious, uml it w ns thought
absurd totuko somiich trouble in studying the brain
when philosophers could explain everything out of
their own consciousness. Geology, t(N, was a very
unholy doctrine, not to bo encouraged by the pious;
and tho Neurological system of Anthropology was
still worse, since wo had philosophy enough in the
Biblo and any additional philosophy of man would
only tend to throw tho Bii.le out of fashion. Spir
itualism was tho climax of iniquity, for it proposed
to investignts matters which tiod did not desiro us
to know anything iilsuit. So it was in former

PROHIBITION—A SONG.
BY JAMES CHALLEN.
I.
Prohibition ! Prohibition!
licttis form a coalition,
Strung nnd miglily ns our mountains,
Thundering as our gushing fountains,
Flowing now, and flowing ever,
Till it swell a noble river;
For a voico Is heard in sadne,
Heard in wailing and in madness,
Which shall turn to joy nml gladness,
Iioudcr still, nnd louder sounding,
O'er tho hill and valley bounding,
From our sisters mid ruir brothers,
From our fathers nnd our mothers,
Prohibition, sternly t rying I
Prohibition, for the dying!
Prohibition, for the sighing !
the foe is from
See, us flying.
II.
a
Prohibition ! Prohibition !
Let ti form a coalition,
Like our fathers, who in story,
Won immortal fame mid glory;
When their rights had been invaded,
Chained, insulted and degraded,
t'p Ihey ruse, like clouds in heaven,
Bv the gathering tempest driven,
When the gnarled oaks arc riven.
Hark ! The voice is louder sounding.
O'er the hills nnd valley Is, muling,
From our sisters mid our brothers.
From our father and our mothers,
Prohibition, sternly crying !
Prohibition, for the dying !
Prohibition, for the sighing!
See, the foe is from us Hying.

WATER.
I
O, W ater! bright water!
Thy station is high,
Earth's beautiful daughter,
Tho bride of tho sky.
The fond earth doth bless theo,
With gentle delight,
And soft clouds caress theo
Embosomed iu light.
Thy purling stream wander
'Mid wild blooming flowers,
Or gently meander
Through green shady bowers ;
Anon wildly lei pi eg
Ad iw n the cascade,
Or pensively sweeping
Along the green glade.
Of thee, O pure wilttr,
Of theo do we sing.
Wine, wine is a mocker,
It lciveth a sting.
Ye gay, nnd ye happy,
O, liy fi-oni its thrall,
'Tw ill lead you to ruin,
'Twill mock at your full.
Turn, turn tu the fountain
Where bright waters lloty
From hill-side and mountain,
Wherever ye go,
(naff, quaff tho puro nectar,
'Tis flowing for theo;
Health's surest protector
It ever will be. J.

AtiniKiir.'s sketches uf travel in this country, from

relating tu sonic ol the principal southern cities;
I have hardly eter been moro impressed with
the power of man, exhibited ifi m'-i duiiiciil inven
ion applied to industry, (linn in the machines for
hulling rice wlucli 1 navo lust visited, r.noriuotis
beams uro driven by steam, which descend on the
kernel of lice with just force enough to lako off
their light envelope, without crushing them. Such
precision given to tlio action uf thoso masses, of
(he force w hich moves them up mid down alter.
nati'ly, is almost miraculous. Tho intelligence of
man appears to less udvantago m tho powerful
impulse which it give to matter than in tho meas
ure and delicacy uf tho action which it enforces.
1 was present not long ago at a hideous scene
1 forgot ull the iirgiiineulH irguinst tlie nnniediatc
overthrow of slavery. 1 liavo just seen n family
of blacks sold at auction, ut noon-day, in tho pub
lic square nt Charleston, 1 hey wero placed un n
cart, as if fur punishment; a red flag was hoisted
at their sulo lit emblem ot criuio nud of slavery,
Tho negroes mid negresses had tho sauio indiffer
ent air a tho tiooplu who wero looking at them.
l ho auctioneer, w no, l was told, wns wen received
in society, praised in a bantering way tho qualities
of a negro, "very intelligent, and first-rate gar-
denor, I ho purchasers went up to tho men, wo
men and children, opened their mouths, and exam
ined their teeth bidding limn took place', ntifl the
bargains wore struck off. Twenty stops off, pre
cisely in the sumo manner, they wero selling an
ass. A liorso was also put up. Tho price of the
man was 10',I; tho horse cost !SJ moro.
Tho day commenced with these horrible impres
sions was finished on a slave plantation. 1'his
was the afler-pieco following the tragedy. Tho
owner of tho plantation is a German, certainly the
least cruel and the least tyrannical of men ; he
seemed to mo literally oppressed by his blacks.
M", who is human, is unwilling to boat his
slaves. The slaves, by no menus grateful, labor
with great carelessness and indolence. When he
entered a cabin wln'ie the negroes were employed
in cleaning cotton, he merely showed them how
badlv their woik was done, and explained tu us
I 1.!... l... l.. I .
1 1.. much dantfi"u V'u caused to hiin by their lu
.'mess. Tho result of these observations was wry
faces and a little grumbling. Iteinonstraueos ad
dressed Ivy un o!d buchol..f ti his houso-kcepor,
wero never worse received. .H""" said lo us
"vou seo how I tvranniao over them." 1 was sin
eerely moved by the humanity uf this man, but I
could not help replying to linn, that whut ho com
plained uf was still uu argument against slavery,
lie could have compelled hired hilsircrs tu do their
work well, by threatening tu discharge them; but
with slaves, there is nn alternative but to use the
luidi ur stiller Irom their idleness,

It is difficult to bo moro disappointed than I was
in seeing New Orleans in the snow and mist ; but
iu about two hours 1 was waiting nuder a bright
sun in tlio streets of tho City. Now Orleans has
the uiiform character which ia presented by all the
Cities of tho Union, both nt the North nud South
without distinction that which in an artistic point
of view might bo callod tlio ubsoncu ot character.

It was not till 1 arrived at tho Levee that I ob

The volume cannot fail to gain a wide circulation.
It w ill be read extensively both at the North uml

Next to I'nelo Tom's Cabin, the extraordinary

Wo hope it wilt bo universally read. If wo do

interesting as ' I'nelo Toms' Cabin," is not 'a
question for argument. In our opinion, it will lead
that wonderful work in the popular opinion, and in
the aggregate uf sale. Bull'. Express.
This i one of tho most exciting narrative, full
of thrilling incident artlessly told, with ull the'
