A TRIP THROUGH A DESERT.
We extract from ft work entitled "Travcli
in Central Asia;" by Arminius Vanberry,
the following thrilling tit etch cf a trip
through the sandy desert or Central Atia :
After leaving thi hospitable sojourn, the
caravan penetrated further and (U r l lie r the
untrodden wilds of Central Asia, until
they reached the sandy desert on the route
to Bokhara. Here they were doomed to
encounter the most dismal terrors. It was
the month cf July. The first station brotlght
them to sea of sand, extending as far as
the eye can reach. On one side it was
formed into high hills like waves lathed
into that position by the storm. On the
other si le, it was like the smooth waters
of a still lake, serene'y rippled by tlie
western wind. The camels end asses
sank to their knees at every step. Not u
bird was visible in the air; nut a worm or
beetle upon the earih. The bones of those
who had perished on the way, whitening in
the sun, as they lay collected in heaps to
guard (he march of future travellers, formed
a sombre memorial of departed life. The
strength of the camels had been exhaust
ed before thpy entered the desert, and two
of them died at the first day's station. Th
terrible heat already left the travellers
without strength; two of the poorer mem
bers of the company, who had tramped on
foot by the side of their feeble beasts, be
came so sick that they were unuble to sit
or ride, and had to be bound at full length
upon the camels. As long as they were
able to articulate, they kept exclaiming,
"Water I water!" the only words that
escaped their lips. On the fourth day, one
of them was relieved by death from the
torments of thirst. Before he drew his
last breo'h, his tongue wns quite black, the
roof of ?iis mouth a grayish white, his lips
shrivelled, and the teeth exposed. Before
leaving the desert, the author had only about
six glasses of water left in his leathern
bottle. These he drank, drop by drop, to
appease the burning heat. Presently his
tongue began to turn black, and alarmed at
the danger, he drank off half the remaining
store at a draught, thinking thus to save
his life. But it only increased the fever in
his veins. His strength was gradually
leaving him, when the caravan was struck
by the tebbad, a poisonous wind of the des.
ert, which hod hurried rapidly toward them
with death in its appearance.
The camels, from which they lost no time
in dismounting, uttered a loud cry, fell on
their knees, stretched their long necks cn
the ground, and strove to bury their heads
in the sand. The wind rushed up with a
dull chtlerin? found, leaving (he party
covered with a crust of sand two fingers
thick. Tho first particles that touched the
body seemed to burn like a rain of flakes
or fire. Had they met the wind six miles
deeper in the desert tho whole caravan
would doubtless have perMied. The author
was left half dead, lie could not dismount
from his camel without nsristance. As he
was laid lull length upon the ground, a fear
ful fire seemed to almost consume his inte
rior j he was driven almost lo madness by
the pain in his head; ho was apparently
suffering the agonies of a terrible death.
Starting toward midnight on the perilous
march, he fell asleep, and, on awakening in
the morning, he found himself in a mud hut,
surrounded by people with very long beards.
He had no strength to speak to them, but
they kindly treated him, gave hi in something
warm to drink, and afterwards some sour
milk mixed with water and salt, which soon
set him once more upnn his feet.
DEATH FROM EISHOKOE.
Conscience is often a hard master, and
inflicts stern punishments. But it rarely
happens that pangs of remorse terminate in
speedy death, as in the following authenli
cated case :
Hubert A , foreman of a respectable
nurseryman, who had lived with his em
ployer ten years, and who had maintained
ii g.iod character, one Saturday night, alter
applying for wnges, claimed pay for a young
imn up lo (hat d ay, whom he had discharged
some ten days before. His master looking
him steadily in the face said :
"Robert do you-want to cheat me, by
asking pay for man that you discharged
yourself eight days ogo ?"
He had no sooner said this, than the
miserable conscience-stricken man's blood
forsook his face, as if he had been slabbed to
the heart. ..hen his master saw him so
much Bffected, he told him that ho might
still labor as he had done, but that aflcr
such a manifestly dishonest attempt, bis
characlcr and the confidence in it, were
gone forever. On Monday, Robert made
his appearance, but was utterly an altered
man. The agitation of his mind hod re-
uuueu ma uouy 10 me K'euieness ot on
infant's. He went to bed immediately;
meuicai aid was procured, but to no pur
pose, and the poor fellow sank under the
sense of his degradation, and expired on
Wednesday forenoon! His neighbors who
attended him say, that a short time before
he died, he declared that the agony conse
quent on the loss of his character as en
honest man, which he had so many years
maintained, was the sole cause of his death.
Gen. Canby has forbidden the Mayor of
New Orleans to interfere in the sale or
lease of the wharves of that city, claiming

BE WHAT YOU SEEM.
If you would be deemed a man,
Act a manly part ;
Affectation is a ban
Show vcu hove a heart.
Wear no voin deceitful mask,
What does falsehood gain, I ask ?
Be what you'd be thought,
AH that glitters is not gold,
'Tis but outward gross j
Speech, though courteous, should be bold,
Use no tinsell'd gloss
Tell no flattering; tales, and so
Feed man's self-esteem :
Wear your own true look, and show
You are what you seem.
Men of thought ore ever loth
Hollow praise to give ;
Only minds of stunted giowth
Dn such diet live.
Empty vessels make most sound,
Words are empty air ;
Live above it and he found

BIBLE DESCRIPTION OF a THUBDER
The Rev. S. Hamilton, in bis "Literary
Attractions of the Bible, thus speaks of the
vivid description in the 2!)l!l Psalm, of an
Eastern thunder storm;
" There u no phenomenon in nature so
awful ss a thunder-storm ) and almost ev
ery poet from Homer and Virgil down to
Dante and Milton, or rather down to Ura
linme and l'ol'.ok, has described it. In the
Bible, too, we have a thunder-storm, the
twenty ninth Psalm the description of a
tempest, which, rising from the Mediter
ranean, and traveling by Lebanon and along
the inland mountains, reaches Jerusalem
and sends (he people into the temple porli
cues for reluge :
" 'The voice of the Lord is on the sea;
the glory of God Ihhii'lercth : the Lord is
on the mighty sea. The voice of the Lord
is powerful, the voice of the Lord i full of

How to Foment Mischief. There
seems to be a principle in human nature, a
kind of roguish curiosity, which impels one
to act upon suggestions given in such a
manner as to imply that, although wrong, it
is expected they may be, or will he, follow
ed out. The larmcr who had a husking
frolic, end. told his neighbors', boys present

GEYSERS OF CALIFORNIA.
The geysers or bniling springs are situ
ated in a desolate gash in the lower pnrt of
one ol these valleys. They cover a few
acres, and are in themselves rather curious
than attractive. Al a hundred points you
find hot steam, hissing or sizzling out cf
little holes of water, the lurqest half-a-dozen
feet over, the smallest nut bigger (linn a
child's teapot. A few ol (hem make a noise
like the panting of a steamboat or a loco
motive. Hut the sight and the sound of
the geysers are very much below the usual
description. On the other hand the medio
i 1 1 ;il value of the springs seems (o be fur
beyond the ordinary estimate.
Heie are found at nil temperature, from
two hundred and ten to one hundred de
grees, springs containing iron, sulphur, mag
nesia, soda, alum, epsoin salts in astonishing
abundance, and these in all possible combi
nations, and in all possible independence of
each other. It would seun as if Nature
had her great apothecary shop in the very
bank out of which the geysers flow, in
monstrous reserved ttores nf soda, sulphur,
alum, iron, magnesia, etc., streams ol cold
water, (the subdivision of a considerable
stream entering the gorge at its upper end,)
and, as they pass over some and skip others
of these beds they eome out saturated with
different acids and alkalies, in different
combinations, and at different temperatures,
the heat being, I suppose, the result of
They issue here as black as inkthere

while the little basins from which the gas
issues and water bubbles are incrusted with
crystals of verdigris, epsoin salts, alum and
sulphur. The soil is very hot to the feet,
and inclines one to walk rapidly. It is
noticeable that many plants and grasses
thrive very near these hot and alkaline
springs. The contrast of the diabolic deso
lation of (he ravine in which the springs
are, with the greenness and beauty of the
mountain-sides above them, is very attractive.

TURF, FIELD AND FARM.
BELIEVING THAT THE INTERESTS of
1 the American people demand a first-class
weekly Journal, devoted exclusively to the sports
of the turf ani field, and (o agricultural' and lite
rary pursuits, we have made arrangements to
publish such a paper. With the return of peace
to our land, war and its exciting issues will no
longer engross the attention, and form the chief
topic of discussion. The people will return with
new vigor to the sports of the field and turf, to
the breeding of fine stock, and the development
of the resources of the country. The wont of a
journal ucvoieu lo meoest interests of the whole
country was never so severely felt as now. To
supply this want' we propose to establish the
Turf, Field and Form.
We embark in an enterprise requiring much la
bor and expense ( but we balieve the people will
sustain us in it. Our facilities for publishing a
first-class sporting and literary journal are not
excelled in the United States. Our long connec
tion with the turf and stock associations of the
country, warrant 'is in thus boldly stating this
fact. It shall be our earnest endeavor to publish
a paper that will interest the general reader.
Politics will be excluded from its columns, as we
have no desire to indu ge in bitter aspersions and
to engage in heated discussions. The turf will
receive especial attention, and it will form ona
of the lejding features of the paper. Wo have
made airangemeuts lo secure correspondent from
every State which take pride in encouraging this
noble sport. The breeding and raising of fine
stock will also receive especial attention, . Tlie
The horse, the noblest of animal creation, for
years has been our study, and we are piepared
to treat the matter in a manner that will chal
lenge the criticism of the public.
To promote (he interests of the farm will bo
another of our chief endeavors. The subjecf of
agriculture is of vital interest to the American
people, recovering as they are from the effects of
a long and desolating war. Neglected fields and
abandoned plantations must again be made tj
teem with life and bloom with the fruits of the
soil. None of us are so wise but that we may
require instruction, and by unceasing effort wo
hope to make this department valuable and inter
esting. No paper to the general reader would be com
plete wi'hout a literary department, and it is not
our intention (o overlook (his important feature.
' Selections from the ablest u-ritfra in :h ..mintrv.
b,it it is ! and contributions from some of the mnt rpnriv
irculates ' and scholarly reus of the dav. will serve to en.
ricn our columns.
