money was told into buckets of water to

at parting, left two handsome shawls as a
remumbrance, uue for Captain Anderson,
and the other for Capt. Gilbert. They
were conveyed front the brig so closely en

British otLicers, and deaf to all remonstra

sacks and drowned in the waters of the
Guit. The horror and indignation with
which this intellige'uce was received at
Corfu, can hardly be described. Not a
man but who would have gladly volun
teered to have burnt Lepanto to the ground
and have hung the dog of a Pasha by his

how noble were the last moments of this
man of blood,
By some means Cherebid Pasha had
incurred the suspicion of the Porte. There
is but one way amongst the Turks of ex
plaining these matters. A Tartar shortly
arrived at the head quarters of the pasha,
bearing the imperial tirman and the fatal
bowstring. The Pasha no sooner read
the fatalscroll than lie kissed it, and bow
ed his lorenead to the earth in token o
reverence and submission.
"Do your instructions forbid me to use
poison instead of submitting to the how
stringl" Calmly asked the Pasha of the
"His highness may use his own pleas
ure," aiswered the Tartar. "1 have wiRi
me a pienht mixture, with his highness
permission I will prepare it."
The Pasha then called together all his
officers and his household. He was at
tired in his most splendid robes, and re
ceived them in state divan, as though it
the plenitude or his power, The fatal
messenger stood by his sicle. In one hand
he held the golden goblet all enriched
with precious stones, and in the other be
held the imperial Orrvan. "I have sent
for you all, to show you by my example,
that It is the duty of a Mussulman to die
at the command of his superior as well as
to live for his service and honor. The
sultan, our master, has no further occasiov

a firm and unflinching hand he carried the
poisoned goblet to his lips and drank it tc
the dregs, then shaking his head as one
who had a nauseous draft, he handed the
cup to the Tartar and said-Keep it
your potioni is bitter indeed; present myi
duty to your master, and say that his ser

"Arid you," he added, turning to those whc
stood dismayed around him, "if ever it

faltered, and his face became deadly pale:
"remember Cherchid Pasha! Alla!-Ac.

could finish the sentence, his head fell up.
on his breast and he fell back upon the
cushions ohf his divan and expired.
The Tartar took a bag fromi his girdle,
and withb a knife'separated the head from
the body; the blood staining the jewelled
velvets. The head he deposited earefully
in the bag, tied round his waist, and in a
few minutes was on his fleet steed on the

of all our joys and our sorrows our snies and
our tears? How is prosperity enhvt-I:ed, how
is adversity solaced by such communion; we
seem to live a double life, to have oiie breast

Onie of the most curious as well as authentic
examples of this kind lia been referrd to by
several writers. I find the particulars in a pa
per by Dr. Giegory, and they were related to
him by a gentlemant who witnessed them. The
subject oh it was an officer in the expedition to
Louisburg, 1758, who hadl this peculiarity in so
remarkable a degree, that his companions in the
transport were in the liabit of amusing them
selves at his expense. They could produce
any kind ofa dreain, by whispering into his ear,
espeially if this was done by a friend, with
w ose voice he was' familiar. At one time
they conducted him through the whole progress
of a quarrel, whieh eiided m a duel; andl when
the parties were supposed to be met, a pistol
was put intohis hand, which he fired and was
awakened by the report. On another occasion
they found bim asleep on thne top ofa locker or
bunker, in'the cabin, when they made him- be
Jieve helhad fallen overboad, and exhorted, him

him that a-shark wvas pursuing him, and entreg

with such forceas to throw himsell'entirely front

was mueh bruised, ad awakened of course.
After the landing of-the armny at Louisburg,
his friends found him asleep in hir tent, muc~h
annoyed by the cannonading. They then made
him believe that he was engaged. when he ex
pressed great fear, and showe an evident dis
position to run away. Against this theyremon
strated but at the same time increased his fears
by imitating the groans of the wounded and dy

At last they told him that thie man next himslf
