stopped, and joined hands they stood with

touching and beautiful prayer; not a heart
but seemed to feel that earnest appeal to
the tkrone of grace. Then asking the us

hoping, wishing for more of this beautiful

. . During the fruit seasons, I was . much
annoyed by monkeys;' a whole, tribe of, the
species, called ring-tailed, came in from
the jungW'S,and devoured all the fruit they
could seize. When, erect, ' they were as
high as a common-sized man; and the ii-
cility which tlrey dit-played was truly as
tonishing. Behind my premises there was a
Jong building formerly used as. a rope walk?
the flat roof of which was their favorite
place of resort to gambol and ; chatter,
VVhen a European approached the' spot.
they would instantly ascend to . tho top of
some ajmond trees in their vicinity; but if
a native came quite near to them.tliey took
no more notice of him than if ; he had been
one of their own species. ; " , ;' ,
One of theso monkeys bocamo quite fa
miliar with the shopkeepers in the bazaar,
and would help himself plentifully to rice,
fruits, (Sic. I was much amused, one day,
to hear a sweetmeat merchant thus expos
tulate with him: "My brother, you know
lama poor man; do not take my sweet
meat bulls; take them from other shops:
there is a rich man, over Oie - Vvay; bo. has
plenty of rupees; go to him. Nay, nay,
brother, that is too bad," (the monkey
having just crammed a great ball of sweet
meat into his jaws;) "1 cannot ..afford so
much: indeed, my brother, I cannot."
And the poor shopkeeper, apparently very
much against his inclination, used a bam
boo to guard his property. The samo an
imal played me' a trick' soon after, that
might have proved of serious cousequenco.
I was riding through the bazaar on horse
back,' when ho caught hold of my horse's
tail, and began to pull first to one side and
then to the other. ,1 had no whip, -and he
was along armd, powerful creature: the
hore struck at him, but he maintained his
hold without .being kicked;, and iu this
manner we proceeded a considerable dis
tance, the horse becoming more violent in
his kicking and rearing, and the monkey
more active in liis pulling, until my syce,
having procured a bamboo, nssaild the en-,
cmy in the' rear, when be took rcfugo on
the roof ofa bonyan's shop. I have seen
these monkeys seize the sacred ox by tho
tail, and give it a sudden and powerful
twist, when he would run off at a full gal
lop, roaring with pain and fright.-. V
' A friend, whose premises adjoined mine,
had a litter of pigs in a sty raised upjii
posts, to' secure it from the attacks of jack
als and foxes,-but it was not outof the
reach of monkeys; Ilearingaii unusually
loud and uproarious commotion in' this ele
vated habitation of little gruutcrs, we hast
ened to ascertain the cause, and found that
a monkey had seated himself usti ide the
mother, and with one of , hor ettrs firmly
grasped in each hand, was riding . iu fine
style around the sty. The servants shoiit
ed, and he mnde his rotreat, but not with
out taking wiih him one of the offspring
of his nag. Holding it by the hind legs,
he mounted 'to 'the top of a tall cocou-nut
tree, and then very deliberately placed his

every tUrn this living instrument of m
prisoner uuder his arm, and -began to turn
T. . -i - i ... j j . : t
uers
and at
music
sent forth loud and piercing .notes; which
were responded to in various tones t from
the sty, , The servants began, to pelt him
with stonos,which caused him to leap from
tree to treojbut finding himself embarrass;
ed by the weight hecarriedrhe threw the
pig into the air,and as it fell fifty or sixty
feet, it was instaHlly killed. ' ; '
, These monkeys become so , audacious
that it was unsafe1 to leave anv .tlnng por
table about the premises. A very large
dog.belonging to a gentleman in the neigh
borhood, used occasionally to give chaso
to any of them that he found alone at a dis
tance from the trees; but one day, as , he
was running after a small one that came
down to the river sidc.3 large ones left the
tree to attack him. First one and then an
other would lay hold of his tail, and swing
him around, then, grasping his neck, bite
lnnears; and id consequence of the great
length of their arms, it was in vain that ho.
attempted to retaliate.- . Uuo ot , them at
length grasped his throat so tightly thatin
a short time, he would havo been killed,
had I not gone to ' his' rescue., Taking a
gun jn my hand; I went toward the' scene
of action, and id a moment' the monkeys
were tar enough away; but the poor dos
was so terribly bitten that for manv days

we never could Induce him to chase amon-
One morning, a little boy, about eight
years of ago, was goiug to school wi th a
bunch of plantains in his hand, to be eaten
at tiffin: theso did not escape the watchful
eve or a large moKoy.perchpd upon an al
mond tree near, the road.'. Making a rapid
though circuitous movement' to gain- the
rcar.Jacko soon came, up with the object
of his pursuit, and jumping between the
bearer and the boy, he put his'- long arms
around the child's neck, .and seized the
plantains.t The bearer screamed, and fled
to a distance; but the child, though terribly
alarmed, maintained his rights manfully for
n considerable time, fjlinging to his plan
tains with all his might: butJacko was not
to be disappointed; giving the boy a blow
on, the head, he knocked hint down, and
bore ou the plantains in triumph, u

.' In the course of a journey on the (ran
ges, my boat stopped for tlie night in the
vicinity of Nuddea.and I happened to stroll
into a bamboo tope, or jungle. I' had not
proceeded far before I heard 'a ' great up
roar around me; and as I looked up, I saw
a great multitude of large monkeys ad
vancing toward me from - every direction.
Some Jeapcd upon the ground before me,
others swung by the bamboos over my
head, and many closed up' tho path in the
rear. Several of the females . had their
young clinging to them; hut this did not
sjem to. render them less agile than ' the
others.-1 A few7 of the largest, and appa
rently the oldestrohattered together a mo
ment, and then tho whole tribo responded,
and advanced towards me. What to, do
1 knewTJOt: however I hallooed as loud as
I could, to make my people hear, ' ind the
monkeys retreated a few paces, This en-
counted mo to persevere; but I perceiv
ed that, when I began to retreat, they clos
ed upon me again, without being at all af-
tected by my noise. Unce more X stood
still, and gave a trenienduons shout, when
back they went again. I gained at least
twenty yards at that time, before Ihev ' re-
turrtod; and just as I was about to 'com
mence another shout, 1 saw a decrepit old
woman hobbling through the midst of
them. They appeared to be very familiar
with hor, aad she took several by tho paw
as she passed them; As soon as she had
approached near enough tomo lobe heard
she poured out a torrent of abuse against
me for dislucbing the sacred animals in
their retirement, and mentioned me, with
almost frantic josturcs, to depart quickly,
her tongue never ceasing till I was quite
outof hearing. I was not long iu com
plying, as tho monkeys, seemed implicitly
to opey her, and cleared tlie path by which
I could retreat.' In returning to the boat,
I met my servant, who said that he was
coming to tell me, not to disturb (Lemonk
i cs in tlie bam boo grove, for it belonged to
Iluneman. The ' people throughout the
country worshipped them, and brought
them, offerings of rice and sweatmeats,
and the old woman was employed to feed

A Woro to Parents. It scorns a hard
Arid cruel thing and it ' a hard arid cru-J
el thing to make the affections of a child
the moans of punishment for slight juven
ile offences. A Inond relates the louow-
ing occurrence as evidence to the point;
A little ffirl who,' although an atiection-
ate little creature as ever lived, was very
volatile and light-hearted, and could not al
ways remember to mind her mother. .-At the
close of a dar in the early part pf Jhe pres
ent winter, she had in .some - ti fling com
mand disobeyod her mother going mto
tho Street to play with one" of her little
companions; when she came in, and was
prepared to go to bed, she' came to her
mother for her nightly kisa. , ,, -.; . , . . ;

me ;.:.: cannot kiss you to-night.". -,'The
little girl, her face.streaming with
tears,' again bwgged hor mother to kiss her,
but she wa9 a strong mindo'd woman, and
was inexorable. ; -': ' ".'
It was a sad lesson she learned; for on
that very' night that child, died of tho
crotip.' ' She had asked her mother; the last
thing ashe went up to het littlo bed, if
she would kiss her in the morning, but in
the morning her lips woro cold. . . . ,'

, .1. - Do not set them too deep-. . This is
the secret of the grand d isco very of the great
kw of. regeLition, for which Itusscl Corn
stock asked the small sum of one hundred
and fifty thousand dollars, vir: ,i . r ,
"I bat tho 'Seat of life in a tree or plant
is just at the poiut where the earth should
cease to cover the foot of tha tree. If cov
ered .deeper; it strangled the tree at said
seat of life or forced it into sending forth
suckers, which stifled all .healthy progress
in the tree." . . . . . . :
. Now, the discovery, is not a new one,
that trees must nut be too deeply planted;
certainly no - deeper than ,'tliey .were when

persons are told their land wants manure,

the tree, and mingle it, in the earth with
which they cover - the roots. This , is all
wrong. The . soil may need manure and
ashes, but these should be . composted in
the soil before allowed to come in contact
with the fibrous rooti of the young trees,
3. Mulch the tree well after setting out.
Mulching consists in placing the manure
be it hew or. old leaves.. Ian-Lark or
whatever is used, loosely on the surface of
the ground for u considerable space around
the tree. On no aecouut mix it with the
soil in transplanting.' ' " "
4. The first step, and most important
in preparing for a fruit yard; is thorough
ly to drain the soil.: The tree cannot be
healthy and vigorous witbout this.-
5 Take care of the tree after setting it
out. Many persons do not bestow as much
labor on a tree, which ought in ten years
to yield an income of ten dollars per an
num, as they do on a half dozen hills, of
potatoes. They do uot seem to be aware
how great' the difference is. between the
quantity and quality of fruit on a kind
ly trenied, well-fed tree, and that of one
half: starved and dwarfed. ' Let it-be al
ways remembered, that whatever is 'worth
doing at all, it is always worth doing well.

Chau actek of Dantox. His person and
his eloquence 'were n keeping with his
mind nnd character. We figure him. al
ways after the pattorn of. Bethlehem Ga
bor,,.RS Godwin describes him: his. stat
ure gigantic, his hair a dead black, a fnee
in which sagacity and fury struggle, for
the inastory a voice of thunder. Jlis'mere
figure might-have saved tlie -uttertmce of
his watchword "We must put enemies
in fear." His face WH3 itself. a .-'jReign of
Terror.". ..His eloquence was not of the
intellectual,, nor of the rhetorical "cost. It
was not labored with care,, nor .moulded
by art. It was the full, gushing utterance
of a mind seeing the real merits or the case
in a clave of vision, and announcing them
in a tone of absolute assurance. Hi! diJ not
indulge in long arguments orela'oorate def
lations. IIis speeches were Cyclopean
cries, st the sight of the breaking, like the
sun, on his mind. Each speech was a pe
roration.' His imagination was fertile.rug-
ged and grand. Terrible truth was sheath
ed in terrible figure. Each thought leaped
into light, ike Minerva, armed with brist
ling imagery. Danton was, a true poet,
and some of his sentences are the strong
est and most characteristic utterances a
mid all tho wild eloquence ,the revolution
produced." His curses nre of the" Street,
not of Paris, but of Pandemonium! his
blasphemies were sublime as those heard
in the trance of bicihan seer, belched up
from fallen , giants through the smoke of
Etna, or like, those which made the "ourn-
in mail " and tho "fiery gulf quake and
recoil in fear.. Such an extraordinary be
ing was uanton. inere was no oeau y
about him, but there were the power and
the dreadful brilliance, the rapid rise and
rapid subsidence of an Oriental tempest,-

I asked a friend once, speaking' of the hap

would like to be always a .'child? He
stopped for a moment,-and then said no.
I think he was right. There is progress

let us look back upon the time-wrinkled
face of the past only with feelings of re

golden hours in working out present hap

What u "Liu Tsa?" A. vast amount
of stuff, which the knowing-ones among
the Chinese call "lie tea," a vast quantity
of which is used both in Europe and Amer
ica, is made thut, according to an account
furnished by John Lindley, F." It. S-, Pro
fessor of Botany in the Uuiversity College,
London: "The Chinese take a tub, into
which they put a quantity of sand, and sim
ilar substances, pounded leaves, vegetable
dust or anything containing vegetable mat
ter, with some gypum; this they sprinkle
with rice-water. The rice-water being of
a glutinous nature, collects the composition
into balls, which hold together, and by de
grees, by dextrous manipulation, the tub
full of this fraudulent material acquires
the form of myriads of globules.' In the
