One day last summer 1 look my place in a Uravesend steamer, and tound considers ble amusement in watching the various characters. 1 wo persons in particular at tracted my notice; one was a middle aged gentleman, stout, rather surly, taciturn, who paid no attention to any living being on board, except a huge Newfoundland dog, that was panting or lolling out his tongue, or roamed among the passengers, shoving them out of his way, frightening children by suddenly coveting their faces with one lick of his great tongue, and convincing nervous ladies that he was going mad by the vigor with which he struck out Lis legs while rolling on his back upon the deck. His master eyed these pranks with a sly smile, and seemed quietly to enjoy the ter ror occasioned by the antics of his burly friend. The other person whom I especially no ticed, was a very pretty and well-dressed la dy. Young lady she would no doubt have been called but that she had with her a little girl, about seven years old, who called her "mamma." She was evidently possessed of nerves. Indeed, she seemed to be pos sessed by them, and their name was legion. Endless were the petty annoyances to w hich they subjetted hen infinite the dilemmas in which they involved her. But her keen est sufferings in this small way were caused by the unwieldy gainbols of Lion, the New foundland dog; and her incessant and puer ile exclamations of terror, indignation, and spite, against the good-natured brute, kept up the sly malicious smile upon the lips of his apparently unnoticing master. The lit. tie girl, on the contrary, had to the increas ed alarm of die weak mother, made friends with the monster, and for a long time amu sed herself with throwing bits of biscuit for him to catch, which feat, notwithstanding the incorrectness of her aim, he managed to accomplish, by making a boisterous plunge to one side or the other, and when at last she timidly offered him a piece out of her hand, and lie acknowledged the comph inent by licking her face and rubbing his side against her till he almost pushed her down, tlie little creatuie fairly screamed with delight. Her mother screamed too. but in one of the small hysterical screams in which she was fond of indulging, and was louowed by an outburst of anger at La on s auaacitv. Good gracious!' she exclaimed, 'if that horrid creature should be mad he'll have killed my child! And how dirty he is, too! Liook at your pelisse, Adebne; see what state it is in How da e you play with that dirty animal: This transition fiom hydrophobia to a soiled dress was too much for Lion's mas ter, and he burst into a lone loud laugh 'I wish, sir,' said the lady, snappishly. mat you would call away that nasty dog, instead ol setting him on to annoy every. body who u not accustomed to have such dirty animals rbout them.' The gentleman said nothing, but bowed and walked forward; and I soon after saw him enjoying a cigar, while Lion played me agreeanie in nis own rough laahion to people who knew ho to read the expres sion 01 an nonem and intelligent physiog nomy. Little Adeline, deprived of the attraction which had fixed her attention to the inside of the boat, becan to see amusement in watching the foaminz water as it rushed from the paddle-wheels, nod danced in long lines behind them. She knelt on a shawl which a fellow passenger had kindly lent as a cushion for her little knees, and leaned quietly over the side watching the roaring water; so her mother was for a time reliev- ed from the thousand motquito-winged vex- ations which had hitherto beset her. We were within a few miles of Graves end. The tide was just at the full, and the broad expanse of the river lay around us in all its majesty; and to those who have nev er beheld the Hudson or the Mississippi old Father Thamrs is majesiic; ay, and if we place in the balance the historic, politi- I i K cm, anu commercial importance ol the transactions of which his broad breast is and has been the highway, our "time honored" river will not lose in dignity even when compared with those giant floods of the west. Such thoughts as these, however, did not trouble Adelines pretty little head, which began, 1 could see, to grow giddy with the cununuai wma Deneatli her. A large sea. weea uiat was dashed from the paddle- wneei caught her attention. It sank, then rose, turned round in a short eddy, and then aanea out in the long wake that was left behind the steamer. She leaned forward to watch its progress; farther, farther still her Utile neck was stretched; she loot her bal ( ance, and toppled over into the roaring flood. In a moment all waa confusion on board. Men were shouting for ropes and boats, to atop the steamer; cries of a child over board.' who can swim!' and a thousand other cries and questionings; but above all, ose the poor mother! heart-rending shrieks, oo painfully in earnest now; and she alone, in the iona instinctive uevouon oi n terual love, that even could she reach Li child the could only sink with her, endcav. ored to leep into the water to save her. Suddenly Lion, followed closely by his master, came tearing along the deck, knock ing the people to right nd left like nine pins. 1 fcey sprang into the boat that hung at the stern, everybody giving way before die determined energy of both man and dog. Lion looked anxiously in his mas ter's face, and uttered a short low bark. 'Wait,' said the Litter in reply; 'where was she seen last?' There, sir, replied a sailor promptly, 'there, beside that piisce of nlauk? How ofien has she rusenr 'Twice.' The gentleman drw a long breath, and said to his dog in a low tone, "look out!" And Lion did look out, with wild flash ing eyes, arid limbs that trembled with anx iety. What a moment that was! Every one else was passive; every other attempt was laid aside, and all stood in' mute ex pectation; those who were near enough watching the third rising of the poor child, and those who could not see the water keep ing their eyes fixed upon Lion. In anoth er instant a cry was raised, as a golden, tressed head was seen to emerge from the water. The noble dog had seen hor first though, and ere the warning cry had reach ed his ears he had dashed from the boat with wonderful rapidity, and was swimming towards the little sufferer as though he knew that life and death depended on his efforts. His master markod his process anxiously His face was pale as death, and it was only by rigidly compress og them that he could control the nervous quivering of his lips. 'lie has her: be exclaimed, as Jjion rose to the surface after a long dive, holding the little Adeline by the hair of her head in such a manner that her face was out of the wa ter. 'He has her, aial she is saved!' Down went the steps, and on them stood a couple of active sailors, encouraging the brave dog by shouts and gestures, and ready to receive his precious burthen when he should ap- froach them. slowly he came on, wistful y eyeing the steps, and now and then look ing up at his master, who was leaning over Uie side, and encouraging him w ith his well known voice. Here you are!' cried one of the sailors, seizing the little girl. She was handed from one to another, and nt last deposited in the arms of an active looking gentleman, whom everybody seemed instinctively to recognise as a surgeon, and by him carried below. Now, come up, there's a brave fellow! said the sailor, retreating to make way for Lion to climb up the steps. But the poor creature whined piteously, and after one or two fruitless attempts to raise himself out of the water, he remained quite passive. Help him help him! He is exhausted cried his master, fighting his way through the crowd, to go to die rescue of his brave lavonte. Jjy the time, however, that he had reached the top of the ladder the sailors had perceived the condition of the dog, and with some dinculty drarzed him from the water, With their assistance he crawled feebly up; then languidly licked his master's hand, and stretched himself on the deck. It would be difficult to tell which receiv ed the most attention the little girl un der the hands of the surgeon and all the women, who had squeezed themselves into the cabin under the firm conviction that they were exceedingly useful, or the noble dog irom the kind but rough attentions of the steamer s men, under the superintendence o bis master. Both the invalids were convalescent; and Lion was sitting up, receiving with quiet dignity the caresses of his friandi, when Adeline's mother came running up stairs; and throwing herself upon her knees before him, and clasping him affectionately in her arms, laid her cheek upon his roujh head and wept. lie's a dirty animal, madam.' said the gentleman, who -.ould not forget her former slighting remarks. 'He 11 make our pelisse in sucn a state! liesides, he may be mad! She cast up her eyes with an expression of meek reproach. They were very fine eyes, and I think he felt it, for his features softened immediately. Oh, pray, pray, give him to me!' she be gan. Give Lion to rot,' he repeated in deris ion. 'Why, what would you do with him? I will tell you. You'd pet and pamper the poor Deist till he was eaten up with disease, and as nervous as a fine lady. No, no; you d better give little Adeline to me. Lion and I could take much better care of her than yoa can.' 'Perhaps so, sir,' she replied, with the gentle manner that had come over her since the accident; 'but still I could not spare her. ane is my only child, and I am a widow. I must go,' muttered the gentleman to himsell. 'Whew! a widow! Has not the immortal WelUr assured us that one widow is equal to twenty.five ordinary women! It's not safe morally safe to be in the same boat with her. He walked away. But who may wrestle against fate? When the boat returned to London Bridge, I saw him carrying Adeline ashore, with the pretty widow leaning on his arm. They had a long conversation all the way home! and when he had put them into a cat) uiey had another chat through the window, terminating with a promise on his part to 'come early.' What could all this mean? He looked after the ctb till it was out of sight. I think she's got rid of her nerves.' he observed to himself. 'What a charming creature sne is without them! Carnage " Air.

'iwt la Hwaf. iocl of the inhabitants of the north-west coast of Borneo, ex tending fiom Datu to Malluda Bay, being now so far weaned fiom their savage habits as to ensure the personal safety of any Eu- ropeiin who may be thrown by shipwreck or otherwise upon their shores, is the tri- umpu which should ever stand the hrst amongst the many which Mr. Brooke has achie ved in that violent land; whilst the knowledge that he has individually btten the means ofrescuing from a slate of slavery between twenty and thirty of his own coun trymen, and other subjects of his sovereign, who. without Uie magic influence of his namo would, to this day, have been groan ing U-ncatli the yoke of Bornean bondage, must ever be to him a source of unbounded gratification. In confirmation of the knowl edge of change in Uie state of affairs in this quarter, I will observe, that not long before Mr. Brooke left Sarawak, a large Ameri can ship was totally wrecked on some of the shoals off Uie South Natunas; and as this dis aster occurred at Uie heightof the violent mon soon, the boats immediately bore up for Uie Borneo coast, and, landing in safety, were provided with native boats, with which they crossed over to Singapore. AnoUier great benefit conferred on the commercial world. by Mr. Brooke has been Uie success of the resulite efforts which he systematically car ried on for Uie suppression of n'.racv. I have already remarked, that no one can be surptised when he reads that pirates infest Uie Eastern Archipelago, for, scanty as our knowledge has hitherto been of that region, still Uie early circumnavigators have fire quently alluded to these rovers of Uie sea; but when we are informed that Dyak fleets of two hundred vessels, manned with four or five thousand men, were frequently cruising off tie province of Sarawak, carrying des olation and destruction in every direction and at the same time learn (hat Illanun and Balnaini fleets, even better organized, and equally great as to numbers, were also rav aginr the shores of every peaceful tribe, and tendering the navigation of the seas so pen xHifs that no merchant vessel may an prow b the limit of their cruising ground; we could scarcely credit this announcement, x et to it was! r rom the many accounts of thuse piratis communitieii, given by Mr urooie in various parts oi his lournal, we are enabled t form an opinion of the mag nituils of their undertakings; and Uie subse quent operation i of her Majesty's squadron against them have proved the correctness of Mr. Brooke's judgment as to their intrepid character and savage nature. V herefore. Uie rendering Uie north-west of Borneo a refui for Uie shipwreck of all nations, and the mppresfion of piracy in the eastern seas are what I conuder the most prominent o Uie benefits con 'erred on Uie civilized world by Mr. Brooke.

Of all parts of the body, there U not one the clothing of which ought to be so care lully attended to, as the feet. I tie most de pendant part of the system, Uii3 is Uie part in which the circulation of Uie blood may be die most readily checked; the part most ex posed to cold and wet, or to direct contact with good conducting surfaces, it is Uie part of Uie system where such a check is most likely to take place. Coldness of Uie feet is a very common attendant on a disordered state of the stomach: and vet disordered stomach is not more apt to produce coldness of Uie feet, than coldness of the feet is apt to produce disorder of Uie stomach; and this remark does not apply only to cases of in digestion, but to many other disorders to which man is liable. Yet do we see the feet of the young and the delicate clad in thin-soled shoes, and as thin stockings, no matter whether it is summer or winter-time; no matter whether the weather is dry or damp, or whether Uie temperature of Uie at mosjihere is warm or cold. But this is not die whole of Uie evil. These same feet are frequently, at different Uines of the same day, differently covered ta to Uie stoutness of Uie shoes and their soles, and very often like wise as to Uie thickness of the stockings. have often found, on investigating into the origi i of cases of disease, that it has been a common practice to go out of doors in the forenoon, the feet being protected with laiub'a-wool stockings, and warm and thick- ly-soled boots; and to sit in Uie afternoon at homo, only having Uie feet covered with silk iitockings and thin satin shoes. I have so often found this to be the case, thai it would hardly surprise me were Uie practice lound to be almost universal among the le males of Uie middle and upper ranks of so ciety. To this common, and sufficiently inconsiderate practice, I have traced many cases ofoncurabla disease. To this alone may be ascribed many acaseof functional dis turbance; this lays the foundation for many of Uiose derangements by which the fust inroad is made into Uie constitution, Uie first step taken in undermining Uie health; Uie first of that succession of changes brought abou, by which the young, and the lovely and Uie healthy, are converted into Uie wasted victims of consumption, or become martyrs to other maladies as fatal, though less (roinmon. 1 am sufficient of a Goth to wish to see thin-soled shoes altogether dis used as articles of dress; and I would have them replaced by shoes having a moderate thickness of sole, with a thin layer of cork or felt placed within Uie shoe, over Uie sole, or next to Uie foot. Cork is a very bad con ductor of heat, and is therefore to be prefer red; if it is not to be had, or is not Jik. .'. felt may be subsututed for it. !t lightness of the cork, the remarkable thin ntss to which it may be cut its usefulness as a non-conductor not being essentially iin paired thereby and the inappreciable ef fect it has on the appearance of the shoe all stem to recommend its use for this, pur pose in Uie strongest manner. I think that neither boots nor shoes should be used with out this admirable provision against cold leet. ihere u sullicient objection to al shoes made of waterproof or iuipervioai nia terial i; they are apt to prove much too heat ing aad relaxing, interfering wiUi the due escape of the cutaneous exhalations. Thin shoe3 ought only to be used for Uie purpose of dancing, and then they ought only to be worn while dancing. The invalid oi dys peptic ought assuredly never to wear thin shoes at other times.

It is a difficult quertion this of "marriage; vouth is most naturally its Mason; every un- folding sentiment and ouaoing nope, eua blanching desire, bends at that period toward he sun of love. Marriage, without love in highest enthusiasm, is not worthy tne name; but the firm basisofre:jaonisr)tthe less need ful. And how liable is youth to mistake- to decide on uncertain premises or, more correctly speaking, to act unreasonably! True, passion lights its beautilul name, and pours forth its generous warmth in the heart of youth: but the fire does not there die! ' - a al In the pure and earnest soul, love, honest and most intense, lives ever; preserving the fie.shnt ss of spring through the maturer sea sons of life, and insures to him who guards it with vestal care, a perpetual youth of the heart. 'Manhood is the season for marriage,' says the philosopher of life; a certain virility of mind, as well as body, is necessary in order to judge and cap acitate for so important a relation. It is from our ideal of what mar- riaee ought to be, not from our observation of the unions, called marriages, around uu, that we must reason ami decide in the ques tion before us. Our estimate of tie worth end uses of marriage will greatly depend cn Uie appre ciation we have forried of Uie meaning of life, and on the understanding we have of our own nature. If Uiat estimate be noble and true, and if we correctly comprehend ourselves, we may conceive tomewhat of the responsibility we ought to feel to act in Uie light of highest reason, when seeking to secure to ourselves the unspeakable benefits of this 'benignetit ordinance of God to man,' as Milton nobly designates it. Our ideas of marriage are generally derived from Uie Cir cumstances and exnmplea around us, and these are rarely Uie most favorable to a cor rect judgment. In designing the structure of life, we must be guided by truth and na ture, rather than by custom and example; thus only can we insure beauty and har mony in Uie building. Each of us is Uie architect of his own txialence, we are given life and the materials to make it great and real; if we neglect to do so, it becomes mean and tasteless. 'What is life,' asks Uie wise Milton, 'without the vigor and spiritual ex ercise of life?' To eUablish tbl vigor, and to inspire this spirituality, is marriage chiefly valuable, and only when it thus rouses into highest life Uie full maturity of existence is it worthy of that most holy office which the Creator has assigned it, of perpetuating His image on earth. This highest appointment is alone sufficient to denote the intense im portance of right and real marriages, it is impossible to estimate Uie increased wealth of mind and soul Uiat would accrue to Uie world if Uie sanction of nature and truth were sought in renewing the ranks of life. Marriage is a solemn tiling, and must be a communion of spiritual and temporal com forts, a covenant of unfeigned love and peace whereof both the general and particular end is the peace and contentment of man's mind, such is Milton's definition, and taking the full meaning of every word, a just one. To insure contentment and communion, mar riage must be an entire friendship, as well as a peifect love. Jcrrold's 3Ifizinr., The Uarsa af Itaasaaras.
