PHIL AN TH RO P 1ST
A TALE .OF ASIA MINOR. .
.[Continual!] '
The summer was beautiful, mid the Bey ex
ulted in the- success . of . his . experiments.
Wherever he had directed the husbandry, all
scorned to be more luxuriant than iu. the whole
rauge'of |he land beside. But, .one evening,:
the sun plunged into a belt of tOouds which
mounted rapidly from the Mediterranean. The
wind roeo in wijd gusts?night, sudden, chill
and .starless, povcrcd the mountain forests as
with a pull, under which the work of doath
was to go oa undisturbed. Tho-pcasnntry *were
f Juscd from thai r sleep by the. roar of ;?uddcn
'torrentB, the thunderstorms sot their nioequcs
iq a blaze, the/ lightning rifled and scattered
Iho ancient trees which for centuries h d been
the shelter of their cottages; all was ruin.
Wlun d*y JobOj glow, sad', and' imperfect, bite
la,ndsc4>pe f?~ and" iT'de was one scene of dc so*
intiou But. if aii TV?-ro surfeits, the chief.'
havoc fell upon the unlucky cxpCriuienff^kts
pf fjhc Bcy. A new process by which the tu"d
was to bo pr;;.r.rcd for a tenfold harvest in
the ensuing year, had stripped the soil of its
usual autumnal covering of shrubs, weeds and
copse,, The wind aud rahi had taken full ven
geance on the attempt to disturb the old plan.
The soil was torn up to the vory bowels, and
the Boy was to find bis palace surrounded by
the multitude in a stale of insurrection,?
charging him with their calamities, denoun
cing his rashness as the cause of the suf
ferings which had fallen on the soif from
angry heaven; aud demanding bread. The
Bey was overwhelmed. The cry of a multi
?tudc was not to be resisted. Yet how ? was he
to remedy the sufferings of thousands? He
gave them all that his palace contained. It fed
a .few for n day he sold his jewels ! all was
but a drop in the sand. The popular cry was
raised louder still, whon it was discovered that
tho Bey's liberality was increased in propor
tion to tho clamor: Ho was embarrassed and
turned to the young Soribo in his anxiety.
"Stop !" was the brief answer; but tho spirit
of Mustapha was not made to stop in anything.
Liberal, eager and lofty, he determined to
show himself superior to this emergency. He
now proceeded to strip himself of all that
could bo turned into value. The populace
lived a week in lazy luxury, and liked this style
of life so ?well, that thoy determined to con
tinue it as long as they woro able. They at
length used threats; Chose > revolted the high
mind of tho Boy; ho drove thorn from the
palace gates. That night he was roused by a
knocking at his chamber door. As ho oponed
his eyes, a broad glare of light burst across
ther?\. He looked.out from the easement; a
wing of his palace was in flames; and some
thousands of the peasantry wcro flinging
torched and combustibles - on the remaining
wing; while a host.of womonyvith children in
their arms, woro exclaiming against "the ty
raut who hud starved them.!' Mustitphu
grasped his scymetar, and would have rushed
out among tho ingratcs. He Was checked by
a. gentle but firm hand. It was .the young
Scribe's.
"Your timo .is not yet como to bo torn to
pieces by a'rabblo," said to; "follow me.'*
4/And loave thoso heartless wretches unpun
ished?".- Was tho quick exclamation of the.
Boy, * ?
"Better leave anything, than leave your own
head on their pikes,"- was the calm answer-, as
the Soribt led Kim, fthnofit' uucousciotndy. down
a dark corridor which opened on the palace

<tg charger the; rein. 1 -Both were ? instantly at'
f?ll speed, and rushing like the* wind towards
the long and Bandy shore of tho Mediterranean
tf here it curves like; a ring of gold, With Samoa,
bluo and beautiful, a huge saphirc, in the rim.
: For two days they wandered along the coast
until they reached tho town of Scala Nova.
The prospect had the usual loveliness of the
Westlof Asia; Tho bright stream, the noble
bills, the brilliant sea, the magnineout forests
of Ionia, were before his eyes^ but he could
see - nothing but the flames' rising over his
palace, and hear nothing but tho roar of the
ungrateful multitude.
?''J^ool that I was 1" he exclaimed, as ho
dashed'his band against his ample forehead;
"doubly fool, to expect that a generation'Of
those souls of cloy could understand my inten
tions."
' "Time is the-teacher." raid the young Scribe;
"the man who does in oho year what he ought
to. do in ten, must -have a master of his own.
who will nuikc him pay .dear for his lessons.
Try the world again." ? But the Bey scorned
the world ; and resolved on turning dervisej or
fakcer, or hermit.
"Let nie' go," said the impatient exile,
''where never sight, or sound of man will reach
me. Ur let mc wander- where the earth will
be all alik^b " to mc, where in the length and
breadth iff nnivorsril brotherhood all individu
ality is forgotten; *or let mc be tho bandit of
Rounielia; the Arab of the Zaara, or the Tar
tar of tho northern wilderness. Never will I
be the friend, the protector, or the prince,
again." ? ? ,
Tu two days more, a Venetian ship was to
sail for Egypt with pilgrims for the Holy
House. ' '?jJefdrc youjnmke your trial of soli
tude," said the .young Scribe, -"try how yak
like the march to ."Mecca/' Mustapha.was in
di/Tcrent to everything j ho would have marched
to Chiiia, or the moon aliko, if he could, 4,To
Mecca then,"- was the answer. And they both
went ou board.
The passengers wore like the living cargoes,
which aro yearly thrown on Arabia, composed
of the produce of every nation, of the Mos*
?lem, Turks, Tartars, Persians, Indians, be-'
Hovers in all the shades of creeds which make
tii? map of Mnhomctanism as motley*as ? the
pathos ?f a Jewish garboruine. The season
was loVeJ**tBCa waB smooth, the wind was
fair, and with a hawing sheet the vessel glided
from the bay, and flua'ed along the shores of
that richest landscape of the world. Mustapha
was delighted" with the scene. All to him was
new, and novelty wa?J the food of his -eager
spirit; but tho seuscof beauty, of grandeur, and
of the overwhelming power of nature, .uXUfia
ted in the perpetual magnifier-nee of tho nicy, the
mountains and tho ocean that now expanded
on him for the first time. He hud never be
fore seon the sea ; the Propoutis was but a lake
and the Bosphorus but a riwer; he now. saw
?the majesty of the w'atem^preading without a
limit, sending, forth the suu at dawn, as from
some pearly' palace in the depths of ocean,
and at eve, opening their bosom for his de
scent among' pavilions of purplo and rose, and
closing over him with billows of molten gold.
As the vessel swept eastward from the G ?lf
of Maori; the mountain ranges, that make the
rampart of the land from the violence of the
winter storms, seemed to fly away behind him,
light and rich colored as the clouds, and swift
as the clouds themselves. All was wild, fan
tastic and vivid. The marble range of the
Gulf of Macri Was,followed by the promonto
ries that girdle the great Gulf of Satalia.
M'ustaphn, without the consciousness of a poet
felt the.cr'cativo thoughts id' poetry ;. and com
pared the summits of the mountains, as they
sparkled with incessant radiance, to crowns of
living jewels dropped on them front the skies;
or to the thrones of spirits that stoop froui the
Stars to koep watch ovor the world. The glo
rious scene Vanished,?only to bo followed by a
ncw.multitude of all the shapes of beauty, rising
from the (Jistant waters like floating pearls, and
constantly spreading and ascending, until they
stood above him in gigantic heights and forms'
sobie frowning in savago grandeur, sonic
clothed with sunshine Jiko sheets of gold, some
winding away bathed in twilight like the
figures of a long procession veiled in vestures
of etornal purplo. During the whole voyage
down the coast between Rhodes and Scande
roon, Mustapha and the Scribe were constantly
on deck together, enjoying the luxuries of this'
great banquet of nature, but each according to
his own feelings. Mustapha, with loud and
eloquent delight; the Scribe, with deep and
silent rapt uro 4 "Whou the tonguo.of the no
ble lley loftily poured out bis wonder, .the eyes
of his youug companion spoke it in the quiet
tears of the soul. ? Vet this difference of their
faculties was^ mndranoe to their Friendship.
Wh** gave" a fine .variety to-their thoughts;
fluid ^uTsUrphfeLn?w?>t? .the world, and newer
slill to;himseif,:ofton turned uway from /?II the
splendors of earth and heaven,-to fix his eyes
qn tho coun.tenahce beside liim, as its expression
was t^nched^by the moment, glowing.with
solemn oathnsiasm, and alternately pale and
crimson with .the high devotion of a worship'
per of nature. * ,
But they were^.now to foeo tho enchanted
shore j^and the vessel, leaving.Scoudoroun, ran
down jme CoastuOf Syria., Jflo change could~be
more complete ; all was the barren wilderness;
even the sea seemed to share the 'melancholy
monotony of the land, t All around was intole
rable glare'; the horizon of the waters had the
look of a vast' buckler of brass. The air was
Stagnant;. human life soured in the universal
scorching; and as pilgrimage Was .the frieght,
bigotry broke out like a. pestilence on- board.
.Mtistapha listened, first with astonishment* to
the bitterness of men for opinions, and then
with laughter at th6 absurdity" of thu opinionS.'
tic saw the Persian ready to talic the Turk -by
tue hoard, and the Tur"k ready to return the
insult by the poniard, for the .question* which
qf two men who bad,died a thousand years
ajgo'was the true descendant of. the prophet.
"May the prophet spurn thoni both out "of jiara
dise"," was his laughing exclamation; for the
Shiitc and the Sonnite would quarrel about tho
number- of pearls in its pavement." . Even
while he was speaking, a furious battlo arose
in the fore .part of the ship. He was rushing,
towards it; but tho Scribo pulled his robe, and
h;o turned. "They," said the youth, "are two
.doctors of the mosque fighting;'* Mustapha
stopped nt once. He had no-possible desire to
interfere between such . slippery personages as
doctors of the mosque, and'-he returned his
half-drawn scynictar iuto its.sheath ? But he
had not far to follow the combatants, for one of
them, a huge Arab of Medina, came running
to tho stern, drugging the other along by the
ncok^tb throw him overboard. Mustapha's
humanity instinctively made him grasp-the de
feated party, as lie was on the poiut of being
&<*k^~io tho dtolies: - - While - with one hand hd
held up the unlucky combatant, aud with the
other kept his vanquisher at bay, he asked,
what could have been the cause of this mortal
hatred ? "Ask the villian whom you have
barely kept from .my murder," exclaimed the.
defeated Mollah. "Docs the miscreant dare to
repeat his impious words," roared the ninn of
Medina; "I call every true Moslem to witness
as I call heaven and earth to avenge the crime
that he dared.to doubt that the sacred camel
which carried the prophet in the Hcgirn was
tchifr!'" He cohld utter no more; he stood
choking with fur}*. "Bared to doubt it?" ex
claimed his rescued antagonist; "I never doubt
ed for an instaut on the subject. I said, and
say, that the sacred camel was black. And if
that misbelieving slave's dagger were at my
throat, I should say it still;" the saying was
unlucky, for iu the effort to second his demon
stration by a blow of a knife hid in his slecv?.
his foot slipped and ho fell under tho very
heels his enemy. The Arab instantly
rushed upon him, 2nd before an arm could be
raised for his protection, na*I hung him over
the ship's sido. Even Mustapha not* shrank
from advancing, for the Arab swore by the
holy stone of Mecca, that at his first stop he
should sec the heretic tossed into the sea.
"But to show that I understand justice," he
exclaimed; "I shall give the wretch one chance
more : Achiuet Ben Saddai, son of an evil
mother, do you acknowledge that the camel
was white ?" "Black," was the outery
in answer ; "ay, black as midnight!" . Then,
down to Satanai"" shouted the Arab, at
tempting to fling him iuto the waves; but the
Mollah would not. bo shaken off; he clung to
him with the nerve of death ; aud tho struggle
was fierce, until the Arab utterod a scream of
agony, and both plunged out of sight together.
On their rising to the surface, the Mollah was
seen dead, strangled by the grasp of his pow
erful fellow disputant. The Arab was dying ;
his broad chest displayed a mortal wound,
which tho Mollah had contrived to give him, at
the close of the struggle, as a final specimen of
his skill iu the art of controversy. A boat
was ordered to be let down to recover their re
mains, but the sailorsbip of the Mediterranean
is tardy, aud in the mean time the disputants
were taken possession of by more interested
activity. A couple of sharks had continued
eyeing the' struggle at the ship's side, in fair
expectation of the consequences. They now
pounced on both the doctors, swept thorn
through surges, whose foam they soon turned
red, and left the merits of the black and white
camels to be sott led by posterity.
"Well," said Mustapha, gravely, as the
wrecks of those unfortunates disappeared; "I
^fiopc tho rest of our disputants will be taught
by their example?"
"When," said the Scribe; -.were fools etcr
taught by example?"

hard to realize that it was once the jhome. of

' Cut This Ontr
The Mercantile Times, gives tho. following
seasonable rules -for young men commencing
business: . ? : ? ?' - ? ... ?
Tho world estimates men by their success in
"life?and, by general eonscut, success is evi
dence of superiority.
Never, under any circumstances,. assume a
responsibility you can avoid consistently with '
your duty to yourself and others.
? Base all your actions upon a principle of
right; preserve your iutc'grity of character,
?and in doing'this, never reckon the cost.
Memember that self interest is more likely
to Warp your judgment than all other circum
stances combined; theroforc, look well to your
duty, when your interest is concerned!
Never make monoy at the oxponse* of your
reputation*.
Bo neither lavish nor niggardly, of the two
avoid the latter. A mean man is universally
despised, but public favor is a stepping stone
to preferment?therefore generous feelings
should be cultivated.
Say but little?think much?and do more.
Let your expenses be such as to leavo a
balance in your pocket. Ready money is a
friend in need.
Keep-clear of the law ; for even if you gain
your caso, you are generally loser of money.
Avoid borrowing and lending.
Wine dunking and cigar smoking arc bad
habits. They impair the mind and pocket,
and lead to a waste of time.
Never relate, your misfortunes, and never
grieve over what you cannot prevent.
HTJMO ROUS.
Yours is a very hard case,' as the monkey
said to the oyster.
Indulge in humor just as much as you please,
so it isn't ill-humor.
The only blusterer from whom a brave man
will take a blow is the wind.
Present your wife with everything sho wants,
and perhaps sho will bo quiet/sr the present.
When is a wave like an army doctor ? Whon
it is-a-surgiu.

Getting married generates poetry in a mai?s*:
id, because whenever a.man git&- married, it
he has a mind above a mud wasp, .he- goes, td
writing poetry. - '
, I con write poetry now, but I noVcr could
do it before. I knew there was something
wanting, but I couldn't toll what it Was til! i\
married my dear Susan ; and soon as I did,
that genius stuck out and began to. show itself,,
it did; and then sayB I to my soff, says I:
. "Thiiuthy P. Niggins, you'll be" a" poet*
You've got it in you j ?ud now. you've got a
beautiful, sweet, dear, delighted, good naturcdl
wife, and that will bring it out."
Every cuss, when he gits a dear "wife, writes*,
poetry about her; or, to speak in poetical 1an:
