Nash (1599) tells-a story vof the origin of
rfd herrings, nearly *aa gopd aa Charlea*
Lam h's origin of roast pig. -According
; to Nash, centuries ago, a fisherman ' of
! Gerdicke Sanders having taken more her?
rings tbanrhe could vrell dispose of, hung
them up iu 'the peak of bis hut or shed.
The weather' Was~~cold, saya our quaint '
author, aud'good fires Le kept (as fishermen,
whatever hardness soever they endure at
fj?a,.wiH make air^moke, but they "will
make amends for it when they Come to'
.Und;) and what wit li his fireing, and smok
ii/g, or smokey fireing, in tLnt bis narrow
lobby,, bi;.herrings, which were as white as -
whalebone when he ?Lung them np,now
look as red ns a lobster. It v^as four or
five- days befbie be or his wife espide it;
.ajid ?hen they espido it they? fell -down on ".
their knees and blessed themselves, and .
cried, a miracle! a miracle! And with their
proclaiming it among their neighbors they
could not:be content, .bbCto court the fisher?
man would, and present it to the king, then
lying at Burrough Castle, two miles off.
What the king said, we are not informed, but
herrings have ever been considered a dainty
dish to set before the king. * - _
" ExnAtSTtoko^CoKVKBBATioK.-Count
Gonfalonieri, ?H- bis account ol' Lis Jong^m
prisonment, writes: Fifteen yesrs ?- existed
in a'dungeon ten feet square! .During six
)ears i bad a companion; during niue, I
-was alone-. T neyer could rightly distin?
guish the face' ot brm who shared my
captivity in tho eternal twilight of our cell.
Hie first year we talked incessantly to?
gether; we related our past live?, our joys
- forever- 'gone, over and over^a^ain. The
'next year we communicated tc each.-other
our thoughts and ideas on all subjects. Tt e
third year we bad 'no ideas to communicate;
we .were beginning to lose the power of.
refection. The fourth, at the interval of a .
month cr.so, we weuldopen our lips to ask
each Other it it were possible that the world
went cr. as gay and bustling as when we
formad a portion of mankip?. '.The fifth
we were .silent. The-siatb, Le was taken
away, I never knew where, I? execution or
liberty. But I was glad v\ hen-he was gone;
even .solitude was better tban ' bis pale,
vacant lace. " <
Difficulties are to the persevering like the
mists which envelope mountain tops; they
'appear in the distance like a thick impene?
trable wall; but ae we approach them, they
recede; and when we stand before them
fisco to face, they wholly disappear.
