v Tho TorcU-Llght Procession.
The New Orleans Picayune produces
tho following touching lines, appropriate
to tho present electioneering times:
In the dark, with a child on her bosom,
A woman is walking the door,
Moaning, while hushing her darling,
"Oh, God! what it is to be poor;'
In the dark, with a child on her bOBOm
In the dark of a comfortless room
Not even a candlo'e dull ray to sootho
Tho terrible acho of tho gloom.
Down the street throngs a Joyous proces?
With thousands of lamp? Bil alight,
And the glare of whispering rockets,
Ascending tho shadow? of night.
Oil enough for the multitude's marching,
And music, aud hauners, and flower?,
Whilo the blue of tho zenith is blazing
With grand pyrotechnical showers.
All alone, with her poor littlo burden,
A woman, with hungering eves.
Soothes, with lips that aro pallid with fast?
Hor famishing baby's cries.
She catches the echoes of loud huzzas
"Great God!" she sighs under her
"While opulence squanders so much
Must my little one staive to death?"
Hark! tho tramp of tho marchers comes
Transparencies gleam past her door
"Our Cause," "Our Kind," and "Our
Country," sho reads, I
But never ono mottoed "Our Poorl"
And she looks at tho dickering torches,
And counts tho magnificent flags,
Then tunis, with a gasp, to her darkness
And her scant and unseemly rage.
Like a riv6r of light, tho procession
Flows away down tho Btony street,
And the star-studded gates of the mid?
Cloee on tho retreating feet.
The music dies ont-in tho dim afar
AU is silence, and peace, and rest.
Save a maaiac mother paefng the floor
A littlo cold corpso on her breast.
THE LITTLE OLD GENTLEMAN.
.'Would you like to look at the
Times, sir? Singular trial, that of
Bisk Allah Bey against the Daily
The speaker was a curious little old
man, cleanly dressed, cleanly shaved,
with short crisp, white hair, and a
face like a red pippin; such a face as
is hardly ever seen ont of this coun?
try, and even here rarely, eave
amongst farmers, game-keepers, or
others who aro much in tho open air
at all seasons. This little-for ho
was very small indeed as to 6ize-this
little old gentleman was encountered
in a first-class smoking carriage, on
the South-western railway.
"Curious trial, that, before tho
Lord Chief Justice," continued the
old gentleman, os if he wished to
promote further conversation. "I
was once tried for murder, myself,"
(with a pleasant smile.) ''Yes," said
the little old gentleman, "and very
nearly hung, too. I did not get off
free. I was sentenced to transporta?
tion for life; went through seven
years of it, and they pardoned mo
for what I had never done."
"You see," said the little old gen?
tleman, smiling more than ever, as
tho five other smokers in the carriage
stared at him-"You seo, I was for
many years a cattle merchant in
London. My business consisted in
receiving from nbroad-from Hol?
land, Germany, Normandy, or wher?
ever I could form a connection
oxen, cows, sheep, pigs; somo on my
own account, others to bo sold on
commission for correspondents, who
sent their animals to me for sale.
Tho trade was a profitable one.
Every beast sent sent over on my a 3
count was fully insured, so that if
they died on the passage, I came
upon tho insurance company. I had
very few debts, and taking one thing
with another, I may havo fully cal?
culated upon realizing at least twen?
ty-five per cent, on my capital every
three months. In other words, I
got a profit of one hundred per cent,
on the money I had commenced
"But with money comes tho desire
for more. There was a time before
I began to deal in cattle, when I
thought myself rich, if, at the end of
ft year, I had two hundred pounds in
bank, over and above my expenses
for the last twelve months. Now it
was otherwise. I lamented that I
had not always an idle balance of
fifteen hundred or two thousand
pounds. I was fond of money for
money's sake. I could not maka
money fast enough for my wishes in
the cattle trade, and therefore deter?
mined to do a little in the loan'and
"It is nearly twenty years ugo, and
I have gone through a great deal of
tron?o since. My system was never
to put too many eggs in one spot
never to lend very much to any sin
pie person-but to lend very small
amounts to various people. I used
to answer the advertisements of
tradesmen in difficulty, and if I
found that a borrower had good se?
curity to offer, I would lend him per?
haps thirty or forty pounds, taking
ten pounds a month for the accom?
modation, and much more in propor?
tion for longer periods. One of my
clients was a printer, with a small
business, near what was then called
tho New Road, near Marylebone
Road. Ho had often borrowed twen?
ty, thirty, and once as much as sixty
pounds from me, and had always re
aid mo to the day. The security
s gave me waa all the Mame, joint
note of band of himself and his bro?
ther, a grocer up Hockney way. The
name of this borrower was Strange_
Edward Strange. He waa in a deli?
cate state of health, always suffering
from his chest, and in severe winters
he used to be laid op for weeks toge?
ther with a bad cough. He was a
widower, withont children.
"One day, Strange carno to me and ]
said that ho had a very exciting offer
to enter into partnership with a print?
er who had been established in busi?
ness several years. The sum required
to be paid for the partnership was
three hundred pounds, and he asked
me to advance that amount upon tho
security of a policy insurance for ono
thousand pounds upon his own life.
On inquiry I found that, years be?
fore, Strange had. whoa a young ?nd
healthy young man, effected an in?
surance upon his lifo for live hun?
dred pounds. This policy he always
mannged to keep up, and .still wished
that it should not relapse. As it had
been running on for nearly twenty
years, and as ho paid a very smul
premium, and wns now in very bad
health, the insurance company would
have been very glad to have pur?
chased it back. Therefore, after
looking nt the affair in every possible
way, I carno to the conclusion that
the security was good, and that I
might safely advance tho sum of
three hundred pounds upon the se?
curity policy beiug endorsed over
to me. This was done, and I ad?
vanced the money. Gentlemen, it
was the worst day's business I ever
did in my life.
"In general, a creditor sees but
little of his debtors, whether they
are few or many. Tho man who owes
money generally avoids tho indivi?
dual to whom ho owes it. But it
happened otherwise with Strange
and myself. With the now business
that he had bought, ho was not ex?
pected, nor oven wished, by his part?
ner to interfere ; and his own indif?
ferent health made it very desirable
that ho should bo as free as possible
from the confined air of tho close
printing rooms. Tho partnership he
had purchased secured for bim a
certain amount of income which,
together with what ho had besides,
allowed him to go about in divers
parts of the country, traveling being
much recommended by tho medical
attendant. Knowing that I had to
make weekly trips to Harwich, and
that I had often to go to Rotterdam
in the way of business, when looking
after cattle, ho asked me whether ho
could bo of any use to me as clerk.
He asked for no salary, only his
actual traveling expenses; and for
this ho was to keep my accounts and
write my letters and mako himself
generally useful. The bargain was a
good one for both parties. On the
one hand, my business was increas?
ing evoy week, and having to knock
about n great deal at fairs, and to
see a great many dealers, I had no
time to look properly after my ac?
counts, which sometimes got rather
complicated. On tho other hand,
Strange had enough to live upon,
but not enongh to pay traveling ex?
penses with comfort. Having been
friends for several years, when we
traveled together wo always had our
meals in common; and in country
places, or where the inns were very
full, wo generally took a double-bed?
ded room between us.
"After a time, I found Strange's
assistance of such value to me; that
I was able to increase my connections
very materially indeed. Being a
shrewd mau, he was able at the end
of a twelve-month, to make purchnses
and conduct my business as well as I
could. This led, naturally enough,
to a partnership being formed be?
tween us, by tho terms of which I
was to lend him five hundred pounds
to put into the business, of which he
was to have a fourth of the net
profits. As surety for tho five hun?
dred ponnds, he insured his lifo for
another thousand. Thus, when we
commenced working together os part?
ners, Strange owed me eight hundred
ponnds, and I held policies of in?
surance on his life for two thousand
"Our business trips used generally
to last from a week to a fortnight.
Sometimes wo were detained at the
port to which we had brought tho
animals for four or five days, await?
ing tho means of shipping them to
England; for it is not every steamer
that will take bollocks, or sheep, or
pigs, as cargo. Sometimes ono of us
would remain in London conducting
tho sales of such animals as his part?
ner sent him from abroad. And
this had happened when tho event
of which I am now going to tell you
