A TALE OF ASIA MINOR.
Mustapha Bcu Mustapha,- Ben Ali, Ben'
Kalcd, thou wast well-known, long-loved, and
deeply-lamented. Tears arc still shed upon the
turban stone that marks the spot "Where thy re
mains'sleep the'sleep of the holy ; the young
men pray to bo like thee, brave, beautiful, and
beloved; the old men thank Allah, that thou
wast the light or their infancy, and the glory of
their land.' Yet thy sun was k>ng clouded by
sorrow, thy name was long stained by calumny,
atnd anguish long bowed to the earth the brow
that was yot to wear the heron plume of power,
and the diamond chclppck of Ihc favor of the
Sultan, king of kings.
Tho father of. Mustapha was ono of the beys
of Karnmnnia, the chief of a tribe, the lord of
a hundred villages, and crowning alljbis honors
with the glory of having made tho pilgrimage
to Mecca. Thtts rich, powerful, and a lladgi,
be-.had obtained the.highest rank of felicity
allotted to mortal man; his name became a
.proverb throughout Anatolia for prosperity;
and when the Mol Iah blessed the marriages of
'the Moslem, hd alwayB added, 'fMay thy good
fortune be as tho good fortuuo of the Boy Mus
tapha, and may thy head bo as firmly fixed/on
thy shoulders; may thy purse as.long escape
public robbery, and mayst thou, like him, sleep
on tho pillow of security, till thou gnost to the
world where men are neither plundered, be
headed, nor boWstringed, because they aro
richer, hotter, or longer-lived, than their neigh
But all havo i^.oW .troubles. There never
was a sky which will not show a cloud now and
then. There never was a lake without a rip
ple. KVon the Bey M ustapha had his t roubles.
They caipe in the shape uf a son; that sou was
tho finest youth in all Karamania, handsome,
generous, braVc, and- beloved. Tho old B?jr
gazed on him with -prido, the tribe,-with vcno
rotioo; he - Was tho theme of the poet's song,
?of tho story-toller's talc, uiul of tho warriors'
carousal. But in the midst of thoso bright
prospects, there was u spot which .looked full of
storm, to the. eye of the sagacious father. His
sen \\ was genius; the Bey was a man of sonso,
his son was a speculator; the Boy was content
with the world as ho found it, his son w&b a
philosopher; but the Bey pointed, towards the
distant towers of Constantinople, and asked
whether philosophy could keep him out of their
dungeons? At length his time was comedos
it comes to all. ? Pr?in his pillow, which over
looked one of the mast smiling prospects of
Asia Minor, ho gave his gallant aud sorrowing,
son charge over his inheritance; finally he put
into his hands an emerald siguot, wrought with
a mysterious inscription. "This," said the old
man ; "is tho talisman of our house; it haB
kept us safe even Under the scym'etar of the
sultan, for nTiundrcd and fifty years. Keep
it, until, you must give it up, like me, with all
things human." His son took tho talisman
with tears aud awe, prcssoa it. to his lips, and
then attempted to decipher the inscription. It
was totally unintelligible to him. "The lan
guage," said .the' Boy; "in which those words
are writton, is not capable of' being read by
one in a thousand, of any time of life; nor by
ono in a milliou of yours. If you shall die
without learning it, you shall die in a tlungbcn ;
therefore learn it, son of my "heart, as soon as
you can." The Bey's, voice had already sunk
to a WJiJspoT. 11U son clasped his hand in
filial' anguish, and knelt beside the couch of
the dying chief. ""Where," asked he, "is this
sacred language to be learned. 0 my father?"
They Bey was silent; speech had perished on"
his lips; bid. he pointed to heav.cn, and then,
with his hand on tho head of his son, gave his
spirit to the angels
>Mustapha was proclaimed Bey by the'accla
mations of a thousand of the linest horsemen
in Anatolia. The world- spread around him a
prospect of beauty. (Jold aud jewels were
liko sand before him.' Tho morning.rose on the
prayers of. his people for his prosperity, and
the 'evening heard .the cry of , tlie ^U^.aii^rc
l urn cd by the songs' of the Knriunnihn shep
herds from the hills, in praise of Mustapha the |
flower of-the land; but tho acclamations of
the thousand horsemen were more grateful to
the .car of the young warrior*,. Their squadrons,
galloping on the plu.n before the palace, the
flushing of their seyinctars, their adroitness
with the pistol and the spear, kindled the pas
s'?n which finds a place in the bosom of every
Anatolian voutb, In his glowihg.tcmpcramcnt
it blazed into. * devouring (lame. But the
flame must wait for a ven? In tho meantime,
he set his vivid iuvontiou to work: his quick
eyo saw a hundred defects in the equipment ,
management, and manoeuvres, of bis troops.
He introduced remedies for them all. But the
troops Haw no necessity for their being wiser
than their fathers. Like them, they could
shoot an eng!? on winS> and cut through u
turban at a stroke.?-rom up ? charger in full
gallop, and slice n Persian or CP*"'w*?n 8kirm'
ishcr from the crown of the head to Tu? chin;
But. their chieftain must be obeyed He was
obeyed, and his popularity instantly fell' fifty
Mustapha keenly felt the difference between
the faint .cry with which ho was welcomed in
his next exercise of the squadrons, and the ar
dent acclamation that hailed his former pres
ence. But his conviction of the true impor
tance of the improvements was too strong to
suffer him to go back. "They arc my chil
dren," said he, as he rot urued. dejectedly from
one of those djiys in which his horsemen bad
manoeuvred incomparably on the new plan.
bad suffered him tit depart from the field with
out the waving of a sword. '?! must treat them
as-such, bear with their follies, and leave them
to have more sense jis they get more knowledge.
But it is unfortunate that we have no war. A
week's real work would teach them the use of
those changes, und they would then know how
to value them as they desorvo."
As ho was reaching bis palace, in a gloomier
mood than he had ever-felt, before, be saw a
horseman riding down the neighboring bill at
full speed. As he approached, the yellow cap.
and the imperial dragon on his breast showed
thai, hin was one of the Tartars of the Porte,
lie brought dispatches. They announced that
the Muscovite dogs bad dared to bark at the
sublime Father of the faithful, and, what wns
more, to bite; that the Sultan had already con
descended to retreat before the Infidel* for the
mere purpose of destroying them within his
own territory, and thus fertilizing his fields
with their bones;.that the Muscovite dogs
being inspired by Satan, and not seeing the
purpose of this discreet movement, bail follow
ed his Mightiness the Vizier, had dared to at
tack him two several times,?for which might
their souls be speedily given to tho black an

patch- concluded , with ? b command that the
thousand cavalry under the ordors of tho Bey
Mustapha, should instantly march to join this
faithful army of iho Padishah, in driving the
Infidels .Into the Danube. The dark eyes of
Mustapha flashed fire as he read tho words.
He VtOo/how in the path to honors unbounded;
his quick-' imagination saw before him fame,
commands, national hpmage. He ordered the
trumpets instantly to sound, recalled his Jiorse
men eagerly, and told them tho tidiqgs. The
Karnmani?n is brave by nature. Ho loves
plunder, victory, gold-Kilted scymetars, and fiho

had heard from them for a month. '? In fpur

bright waters of tho Bosphorus.

ThOir. trial soon came. From the summit oi
a low'jrangc of barren hills in Bulgaria, Mus
taphafpne day sa'w a mob of foot and. horse
rambling about the country, some quarrelling,
some robbing, some cooking, and some with
their fogs, loose, looking for game. Ho iu
qriiredf?f a peasant what this strange medley
meant^j To his utter astonishment he wus told,
that tlrjs was the Turkish army. This wis
onor^P^Ui'^?iiise of-their defeats was evident.
What could he done against the "Muscovite
bayonets and guns, with an army one half of
whom -were forced to rob for food, and tho
other to rob robbers? His geuious was instantly
on the alert. Ho conceived a plan for at once
restoring their discipline, and supplying their
food; and determined to take the first opportu
nity of earning immortal fame !>}? enlightening
the brains of the blundering Vizier. But what
was to be done with a commnndcr-in-chicf who
had been a slippcr-makcr, and had never known
thcAi.se of steel but in his own awl ? His high
ness listened to the plan of the young Boy with
a smile; said that it was excellent, but im
practicable; that the Ottomans had been in
the habit of conquering heir*enemies without
these new inventions, and by the blessing of
Mahomet, they would cououor them still. The
Vizier having said thus much, made a sign to
one of his attendants, and dropping his head
on the sofa, fell asleep.
"*J;>stapha indignantly returned to his tent.
Sonic ot his offiuC!? came round him on his en
trance. ''Comrades," said he, "I havo failed.
My infallible plan has been thrown away.oil
the ears of that hog of a slippcr-makcr. He
was drunk when I .went, he was asleep when I
came away. So, fight or fight not, we must be
starved." He rushed into the tent, and un
buckling his scymctar, began to meditate on
the first fruits of his gl<>ry. A sliglit noise
roused him ; and he saw one of the Cnpidgis,
with the Vizier's order for his head in one
hand, and the bowstring in the other. It was
clear that he had not yet learned to read the
language of tin* talisman. The Capidgi came
forward, to teach him a lesson on the liberty of
speech. A true Turk would have given his
neck in return. But Mustapha was .too new
to lifo to have acquired its perfect courtesies.
He was a mountaineer, and rude in proportion.
His only answer to the respectful salutation of
the Capidgi. was a blow with the hilt of his
loosened scmytar which brought the Sultan's
officer to the ground. He then tore the, order,
and kicked the unfortunate, instrument of jus
tice out of tho tent.' He was on the point of
mounting his charger, to lay the whole affair
before the Divan, when a most flattering mes
sage arrived from the. Vtzier, apologizing for
"the misconduct of the officer, who was on the
point of being bastinadoed for his error," and
requesting tho company of tho Bey to take
coffee, and receive tho command of a brigade
.of cavalry. Mustapha was instantly appeased,
lie flew to tho Vizier's tent, was welcomed
with remarkable graciousness, and-was in the
act of smoking Uie pipo of honor, when he
felt his bands bound, and was marched, with
out another word, to the rear of the tent, wlwre,
on looking for his accusers, he could sec nothing
but tho .same Capidgi, bowing with habitual
grace, and half a dozen mutes, ready to per
form that ceremony upon h'im whielj supersedes
all others. - This comes," he murmured bit
terly, "of attempting to put knowledge Into the
heads of asses*, Let'ino escape but this once/
and the world may fool itself after its own way
for the rest of my. existence.''. The reflection
was tardy, for the mutes were. fn. the act of.
fastening the string round his neck", Another
moment would have extinguished the man of
genius. But at that moment a shell whizzing
through the air,, dropped into the centre of the
group. Tho applicant of the string was
Crushed into mummy. Three other were shat
tered into fragments by the explosion. Mus
tapha stood a free it nb again. Tho Vizier's
tent was set in a blaze, and he rushed through
it in the confusion and regained his.own; in in
finite wrath with blunderers Of all kinds; but
not yet including the teacher of tactics to slip
