The reigning Snllan of Turkey, Abdul
Hamid, is the thirty fourth ruler of the 0.=.
man dynasty, and the twenty-eighth gjnee
the taking of Constantinople. He was born
September ill, 1842, and is the second son of
the Sultan Abdul Medjid, having >uceeeded
his deposed older brother, Mourad V., in
1S7G. His eldest sou, Mohammed Selim, is
a lad of sixteen. Abdul Hamid is described
by one who knows him as a small, spare
man, with an olive complexion, and restless
black eyes that ore constantly wandering,
as if in apprehension of some danger He
lives iu constant fear of assassination, which
is not strange, since a violent death seems
the destiny of the rulers of Turkey, and
never quits his pa'aco except to go to pray?
er.--, when he gees forth surrounded by an
army of guards, carefully concealing from
the public the name of the mosque to which
be is going. The annual visit which he is
obliged to pay to the Mosque of St. Sophia
is regarded by him with great dread, and is
made with every possible precaution. He
is courteous in bis bearing, aud very polite
The Mosque oi Suleiman the Magnificent
is the most beautiful mosque in Constanti?
nople. It was built with the intention of
surpassing St. Sophia, which it far excels in
grandeur, and was thirty-six yeara iu con?
struction, having beeu beguu in 1550. It
has four minaret , two large ones with three
galleries, and two small ones with two gal?
leries, a. large ceutral dome, equal ing that of
St. Sophia in diameter, and exceeding it
twenty feet in height, two half domes and
ten smail ones. In front of the mosque is a
large court, surrounded by a gallery formed
of twenty four columns, euch sustaining a
All mosques have fountains and washing
places for the iiblusions of the true believers
beforo going to prayer. As the washing
must be done with runuiug water, outside
tho principal mosques numerous little taps
along the flanking walls pour forth narrow
streams of water, splashing onto slabs of
while marble, giving a coc! and very re?
freshing sensation as the liquid sparkles in
All sorts and conditions of men abound at
Constantinople. The Turks, although the
ruling people, are in the minority. The
Constantinople Turk is a hybrid creature,
with very little real Turkman blood inhim ;
if good examples of tho race uro sought they
must be looked for in the Asiatic vilayets.
It !3 possible to live many year3 in the city
and yet know nothing of them but as they
appear in the streets. With their women it
is almost impossible to tecotne acquainted.
Every wiudow of the baremlik, or woman's
quarters, in a Turkish house, is closely lat?
ticed, and their retirement, although less
strict than with the Persian*, has relaxed
very Httlo of recent years. During eariy
summe: iarge bodie s of them collect at the
valley of the Sweet Waters. This is the
best opportunity for seeing them en masse.
The richer hanoums are foud of riding
about in broughams. At such times as the
Bairams, tho Mevloud, aud the anniversary
of the Sultan's accession to the throne, the
streets are crowded with these carriages ; it
is perhaps unnecessary to say that their oc
cunauts are not accompanied by their hus?
bands, but under the surveillance of their
drivers or mounted attendants ; in nearly
every case they will be found stout and
elderly. Now and again a memorable face
may be descried. Intrigues of the sort com?
mon in the Levant are practically unknown
with Turkish women. However intimate
you may become with a Turk, you will
never pass beyond the zelamilk. Upon the
railways, tramways and steamers there is a
compartment reserved foi- the fairer sex.
This seclusion is not, as might be sup?
posed, against tho woman's feelings;
will has been lost in habit, and a woman
who transgressed the proprieties estab
lished would be the scorn of every harem.
It is a rare thing to see a turban proper up?
on the he?d of any person; tho fez is worn
everywhere; by strict Turks a compromise
is effected by folding a handkerchief round
tho fez, and tho head-dress which results is
very becoming. The fez suits a man with a
finely developed bead: otherwise it gives
him a comical, orang-outang look. So fond
of it are its wearers that they refuse to dis?
place it. It is worn at the theatres, at din?
ner, etc., and, for aught that is known to
the contrary, may be slept in, for apart
from the tassel it would form an admirable
nightcap. When finally oil' duty it reposes
upon a block like a barrister's wig.
A Turk is a fine sight on horseback, for
he is a born rider: he proceeds easily with
long stirrups and loose rein, balaucing his
body to every motion of the horse. Per?
haps he relies too much upon tho balance,
and would fiud himself at sea where a slid'
grip is necessary.?Harper's Bazar.
Before daylight last Saturday morning J
about twenty of tho young men in Marlboro,'
I Mass., called at the house of Timothy Eas- j
' ton intending to preaent him with a suit of
j tar and feathers and then give him a ridn
: out of town on a fenco rail. Easton, bear
I iug their approach, jumped from a back
! window and tied to the woods in his under
! clothes. He was out in a blinding snow
j storm for four hours and came near ireez
: ing to death. It is stated that although he
; has had several chance? to eo to work this
: winter he has refused to take them and has
; lived on food that charitable neighbors sent
; to his wife and children. Some young men
i went by his house Saturday night and saw
I his wife cutting up a rocking chair for lire
j wood. This exasperated them and they
I determined to teach him a lesson. It wili
I be several days before he recovers.
