Do trusty friends %nrround his thirne

THE LOST CLASP RNIF .
TE MURDER-AN ARREST. in
It vns a wild, rugged scene, near the west
ern shore of Lough .eagh, in the county of
Tyrone, andJ i the northern part. of Irelaid. T
the left, stretching away from the banks of tiw
lake was a (iark bog, over which, nclose-tan I
gled masses, growr the ra: oaswidevoonl.
It was just at night that a way-worn pedlar en
tered on the-dubious foot-trauk that le i uioup:
the bog; and froi the conilidence with which
he walked it, one might have .suppu-:ed that ie
had traveled it often. Iii; way was toward .
Londonderry, and as he found hiniself in the
midst of the gloomy wildwood, he began to
whistle a slow tune by way of enlivening th d
scene. At some spot.<, where the fi-miknt oI
the little shrubbery vas quitearee, thtvsir. I I
trembled andshook beneath the pedlar as tread.
but he-felt sure, or knew that he was in the
right track, arid he kept steadily on. .
Not long after he had disappeared from si-:ht1,
in the intricate windings of thec pat hi, any one
standing upon the edge of .the bog nmighlt have
heard a sudden rustling of the distant wild wood,
as though some one had rushedl hastily -throug~hj
it. 'T.hen camie a scuile, a cry of pain, a fe.w
deep groans, and then, for a few mom:ents all
was otill.. in five minutes 'more there wig aniother

ie did not reach her, however, for Phil Ka

an oaken bunch, An instant he remained with

his body rolled upon the floor. There were
two or three long struggles-a crimson stream

fair victim escaped him.
" Go] did I Iat !" cried Mary.
"God did it!" cried they all.
Mary Carroll held the order for Coney Drake's

Whilst there have been many opposers of the
Drama-men too who have stood, -and stand
high in the world, and whose opinions have
been htuded down on the subject; there is
equally as powerful authority in its favour;
authority which must' and will command re
spect and attention.
Mtar..ns Aurelius, an emperor, distinguished
for his piety, says: "Tragedies were firat
brought in and institutedi to p!t men in mind
of worldly chances and casualities. After the
tragedy, the Comedia Ve us, or ancient comedy,
was brgught in which had the liberty to inveigh
against personal vices."
Martin Luther, on the subject of the .tage,
says: " In ancient times the dramatic artL has
been honored by being iade subservient to re
ligion and morality; and in the most enli<en
ed country of antiqlity, in Greece, the theatre
as supported by tbe State. The dramatic na
ture of the dialogues of Pluto has always been
justly celebrated, and from them we may cou
ceive the great charm of dramatic poetry. Ac
tion is the true enjoyment of life, nay, of life
itself. The great bulk of mankind are either
from their situation or their incapacity for un
common efforts, confined within a narrow circle
of operations; of all amusement, therefore, thI
theatre is the most profitable; for there we see
important actions when we cannot act impor
tantly otrselves. It affords us a renovated pic
ture of life, a compendium of whatever is ani
mated and interesting in human existence. The
susceptible youth opens his heart to every ele
vated feeling; the philosopher finds a subject
for the deepe -t reflections on the-. nature and
constitution of man.".
In another work, Luther says: "Christians
ought not altogether to fly and abstain from
Comedies, because now and then gro~zs tricks
and iallying passages are acted therein; for
then it will follow that by reason thereof we
should also ab.itain from reading the Bible.
Therefore, it is of no value that some allege'
su'ch and the like things, and forbid christians
to read or act comedies."
We might, if we had time and space, intro
duce numerous paragraphs from the writings of
such men as Philip Melancthon, Rev. Dr. Knox,
Lord Bacon, Dr. Philip Sidney, Dr. Gregory,
Sir Joshua Reynolds, DIsracli, Dr. Isaac Watts,
Archbishop Tillotson, Potter Porteous, Percy,
Warburton, South, Watson, Paley, Ridley,
Young, with hundreds of others in defence of
the Drama. The testimony of such men-men
of character and tone, is such as must speak in
The Drama "has been supported from the
earliest-periods, and for a long series of years,
lias met with jthe protection and encouragement
of government. Wi uld this have been the case
if there had have been within it the seeds of
evil? If it had been found injurious to the
well being of communities? assuredly not.
The DrapIa has met with sulort And fayor
from christian'inistersan en., Profes
dranfas. Apollenaris wrote scriptural tragedies
and comedies, together with Dr. Edward Young,
author of Night Thoughts, Rev. C. Maturin,

Milton, Coleridge, Thomnrson, Goldsnith, Miss

As to the character, position and standing of
actors. erroneous impressions exist; some may
be inclined to tliiiik that they stand outside the
pne of society. But this is fllse. It is with
thei as with mecmbers of every other profes
;on. Those whose ability, conduct and talent
enitles them to respect, are always esteemed.
The profession of an actor was highly estein1 I

Kintzi, of' Exeter townmshipl, Berks county, Penn,.,
called at the otice~ of the itending Gazette a day
or two ago wi th two sampie of syrup or molasses,
onel mlatde from the comuan Indttian corn and the
other fromr the Chinese sugar cane. The first, it
is statetd, was of the colour and consistene~ of
the~ best molamsse's, and had a p!rrasanut swee~t lla
vor. Mr. Kinmtzi tr'ied but a small experimnit in
making this svrup. He took eight earn stalks,
cut off' at the~ ~root and at the car, crushed them
in a cider mill, anud pressed thme juice out with
hi-; hand~s. A quart of sap wams thus obtained,
whch, aller hailing thirty minutes, yielded one
pint of beautiful syrup. The Chinese sugar cane
was subjectedl to thme samc process, and yielded
about the same quantity of syrup, but not so
thievk nor ofl so fine a flavor as that made from
the coumondian corn.

r:.::.--The letter of' Prof'esor Morse, which we
publ~ishedt, gives a peCrfectly clear and understand
able explanation of the cause of' the breaking of
the Atlautic: T1elagr'aph cable, and fixes thme blame
ot' the disaster where it probably belongs. Mr.
Iright, the lheadi enmgiacner, who had the laying of
the c'able under his sole direc'tioni, ai~pears to have
been the culpr'it. IHe had put thme blame upon
"a mlchiei," bmut P'rofessor Morso says that he
ordered one of his subordinates to aipply the
brakes, the " mnechanic" hesitated, Mr. Bright
"enuerously" gave a certificate exonerating all:
persons on board the ship from any blame for
the disaster. Another very important fact stated
by Profe~ssor Morse, is that the cable was running
out but very little faster than the rate at which
the ship was going.
