As he reflected thiia hia eye fell on the

her opportuiiity. Talking of the acqiiisi

her ahe should purchase any reasonable
quantity, provided ahe would not smuggle
any. 1'o thin she acceded. The gentle

Ids comfort. Once when smoking, while
lighting his cigar, he set hia £own on fire
and quite a holt* wa* burned in the akirt.
Hit wife was considerably agitate'I, antl
he was flattered that so trifling a danger to
him had ao moved her. One morning,
immediately after their return to thia
country, he found liefore he reached bin
office that keys he needed he had left at
home, and retraced his steps to get them
hetting himself in with hia bitch key he
proceeded to hia chamber, and on o|eiiiiig
the door found hia wife on her knees on
the tloor, hit dressing-gown divested of ita
lining and spread Ix-tore her, ami she,
sclaaor* in hand, disengaging from it a
white, IIinitty fabric with which it was
covered. She sprang up on seeing him,

from the citv. when "one of them, to test
the reality o'f Miine of the extraordinary
featm of the marksman-hip he tasted of

them, to which the other two added five
dollars lietween them. The triaJ came off
in *n oM rteid half a mile l*low Kocketts,
antl was witn* .-Mal by about a dozen per
sons.
The old flintlock was fired semi time*
and only once missed ita aim. The old
gentleman, after making two shots at
small objects to one -ide, to get his hand
steady, a* he said, handed bin son a jsitato
and s*tatjfnel him at fifty yard- tli-tance,
holding the potato lietw t-en lus thumb and
forefinger The rifle cracked, antl the
jotato fell cloven in three or four pieces.
One of the larger pieci-ii was then thrown
info the air. the marksman keeping at the
same distance, and again the shot told.
An inch a/d a half auger was then pro
duced and a hole bored in the fence, be
hind which was fastened a piecc of white
p»i»er. At the distance of nixtv
yards the marksman sent a bail
clear through the aperture, piercing the
paper. At the fourth shot, from aixtv
yard* distance, the l»owl of a pipe, which
ibe son was smoking, wua crushed. At
the fifth shot a copjier cent was thrown
into the air and hit. The sixth antl sev
enth shots were delivered at a blackened
five-cent nickel piece thrown up by the
son, standing about thirty yards off. At
the first attempt the sliot missed. The
old gentleman showed considerable mor
tification and laid the blame tqiori a by
sbinder who, at the critical moment,
sneezed loudly. The next attempt, how
ever, was an entire success. The old
man declined any further trials of his
skill, and when offered a sum of money
to repeat his first feat of shooting a potato
from his son's hand he refuned, saying
he didn't care to try such exieriments
unless his weajion was freshly cleaned
The exhibition was the more remarkable
from the fact that the marksman was an
oltl man, at least fifty. His eye, however,
is a clear, bright gray. His appearance is
that of a poor farmer. The young man
showed not the least tremor or anxiety dur
ing the dangerous experiment IIJKII him

said: "Hob can shoot just as well a* I

A correspondent of the London Timtn,
writing of a small pox epidemic now rag
ing at Athenry, says: The panic which
thi* scourpe spread* wherever it show* it*
hideoua visage has indicated itself in a
form not usual in Ireland. Funeral* are
avoided by the populace to such a degree
that, until a suitable mortuary vehicle
was provided by the Hoard of Cuardians,
mothers were reduced to the bitter neces
sity of carrying theirchildren to the grave,
i tin not recollect that Defoe relate* a
similar im itlenl in connection with the
great plague of London, but, allowance
lieing made for the humanizing progress
of two centuries, the present horror' is
very revolting. A truly mournful instance
occurred a few weeks since. A woman
named Hoyle had Ave children, who,
though always ill led and poorly clothed,
were distinguished among surrounding
families by the singular lieauty of their
features am) the bright intelligence is-am
ing from their eyes. Four ol them were
stricken by the disease and died, tine aft
er another and whether it was that her
neighlsirs thought they had done enough
in assisting to bury the first two, or tliat
they happened to In* accidentally out of
flit way when she brought out Die third
for interment, there wait no man near to
help her Bhe therefore placed the little
collin on her head and set out unattended
It) the Abliey churchyard. Hut her eldest
child, Mary, a girl in florid health and
almut sixteen years oltl, who was out
at nervlce, *eeing her mother pass,
rushed out from her master's house in
to the street, aud seizing the coffin by
force bore it away. This was an Irish
funeral such as few painters would dream
of transferring to their canvas. Vet it i*
a subject not unworthy of Delaroche or
of llolman Hunt. On she went through
nearly the whole length of this straggling
town, while women antl children fled lie
fore her and Krin's sons' were not visi
hie or apparently within call to redeem
the manhood of their town from such a
scandal. If any followetl they held aloof
till she entered the dreary cemetery, and
there they left her alone with her glory."
For, lamentable a|wctaclc as it was, there
was a glory such a* might make the un-
flowed
jch smile, when that young heroine,
under her sacred burden, was seen
to stumble among multitudinous graves
antl head stones till ahe laid it down fond
ly and reverently beside the scarcely cold
remains of the other children. The sad
dest part of the tale remains to be told.
Ifcturnctl jaded and breathless to her
mother's door—it would have lieen useless
present herself at *ny other door after
that op'-ii contact with mortality—Mary
Hoyle sank down UJMIII the threshold with
the piteous cry, which was heard in the
street, Mother, 1 am sick.' l'oor child,
so she was, sick unto death antl in less
than forty eight hour* men were found to
uirry her oyer the path which »he had
trodden alone, and to place her in Uie
same grave with her little brothers
and her
sbtcr."

The winter of 1*12-'1S is memorable for
its extreme tlegree of cold, which began at
an early date. The horrors which Na
poleon's army sufi'eretl from the bitter
weather in the fatal retreat from Mo|-ow
suffice to fix the sea*on indelibly in the
memory. The following year the winter
was so'glftcial in the south of England
that in February a sheep was masted on
the frozen Thames, antl at a fair held tin
the 4th of the month the space bctwt-en
London and lack friars bridges was filled
with spectators. Snow fell in New En
gland in every month of the year 1^10.
and the weather was so uniformly chilly
that scanty crops of every sort were har
vested, kittle or no corn was raised, and
something like a famine wan threatened
for man arid lieast.
In Western Europe the winter of 1840
'41 w iis among the severest on record. The
season is notable as that in which the
lxidy of Napoleon was tramd'erred from
St Helena to the Church of the Invalides
in Paris. The temperature was so low on
the day that the funeral procession passed
tnrough the city that many of the sja-t ta
tors who watched its progress from sta
tions out of door* perished from extxisure.
The spring was early in New England in
the year 1W4, but on the 15th of May,
after the gardens were made and the veg
etables well up, and the currant-bushes in
blossom, the snow fell to the depth of a
foot. Nothing was injured, however, by
its burial under the thick, downy blanket,
and the summer was unusually fruitful.
Turning from winters distinguished by
exces-ive rigor to summers that are re
markable for their ardor, we find that one
of the hottest season* ever experienced in
England antl France occurred in 17M.
For fifty-one days, beginning with July 1,
the thermometer ranged in London from
7H degrees to degrees—a most uncom
mon height. July it stood at 101, yet
the heat was more oppressive on Aug. 7,
when it marked but 87, for a sultry wind
blew is from a furnace, and paralyzed
rt -piration." The drought, too, was ex
ccsaive. The waters of the Heine hail not
lieen so low for seventy four year*. Vege
tation was withered and dried. The foliage
of the vine and fruit trees was scorched
and shriveled. The trees in the Palais
Hoy a I drop|ied mtist of their leaves no
less than 150 were stripped entirely bare,
and many of them died. The soil in the
gardens of the Liixemliourg was dry as a
bed of ashes to the depth of three antl a
half feet, and in the neighborhood of Tou
louse the corn crop entirely failed. Every
where the ground was baked and cracked
by the heat, and gniss and herbage almost
dual out.
In France, Belgium and England tiic
summer of 184"' was tine of the most tor
rid of the present century. Ten years
later the summer was, in the same coun
tries, scarcely less trying. Many do.
mestic animals dropped dead from the
heat while laboring in the fields. The
year 1VW is noteworthy, not for a warm
summer, but a mild w inter. In Wurtem
burg, a chronicle of the times tells us, the
trees budded at Christinas. In February
the strawberries ripened and in April the
vines blossomed. Hut in May a change
came over the scene snow fell and the
vines ami the fruit blossom* were killed.
Yet the season was still so early that the
vines put forth new foliage antl flowers,
and the usual amount of wine was pro
duced. Yet more remarkable for a re
verse of the seasons was the year 118*
when the apple-tree* blossomed in Janu
ary and their fruit was large as hazel-nuts
in February. The harvest of thin cxtraor
dinary year was in May and the Tintagc
in Augu*t.
July 21, 183?, the weather suddenly
changed from intense heat to such a de
give of cold that the jiotatoe* and cereals
were frozen in the elevated districts of
Wurtembiirg. Three year* after there was
a similar abrupt fall oV the temjH-rature in
France at the close of June, which cov
ered the mountains with snow at Rourbon
and the plains with hoar-frost in the Au
vergne.
It is remarked by observer* that extreme
weather in any one region on the earth is
balanced by the op|ssite phenomenon in
*ome other region thus, while a winter
or a summer of unusual severity prevails
in one part of the world it generally hap
pen* that the same season is clsewliere un
commonly mild. While in the winter of
17M-'4U navigation was complete!}- cltwed
by ice on the river Thames, and the Ger
man Ocean was frozen a* far a- ten miles
out from Ostend, antl eight to ten feet of
snow fell in Spain and Portugal, the in
habitants of Greenland and Iceland were
reveling in extraordinarily mild weather.

The winter of 182W-' $0 was so severe in
Southwestern Europe that the Lakeuf Con

present generation, completely frozen over,

very soft and pleasant. On the other

Maharajah Inle«p Sln$h.
In a very interesting conversation w itli
an English gentleman last evening, who
had resided in India several years, hn gave
it «s his opinion that, while no misunder
standing between England antl Russia
could give rise to any immediate attitude
of a Ixdligerent character, still it was to be
apprehended that should Russia make
war on India, with a view of conquest of
the territory. England would becoinpelled
to take aggressive measures.
In winding up the evening our English
friend told tlie following romantic story
about the marriage of the Prince Maharajah
Duieep Singh, of India, some years ago,
the truth of which is vouched for. while it
throws no little light on the jiolicy ot Fn
gland in acquiring territory in India:
It appear- that it has long been the cu
tom of England, when they wish to ap
propriate pome principality in India, to
offer to the Prince a certain wealthy an
nuity. allowing him to retain his title,
provided lie agrees to cede his lands to the
crown and come to live in England. On
one of these fiecasions the Prince Duieep
Singh, having accepted the proposition of
the crown, came with hi* mother to Fin
gland, where he received a thorough En
glish education. He had all the manner*
of an English gentleman, and was received
at court with great deference, he taking
precedence in rank as a royal highne—.
Beside* the immense annuity he rect i vet!
from the English Government lie also had
a verv large fortune of his own in India
He was consequently looked upon with
great favor by the fair women of England,
and, indeed, many u titled lady would
have lieen far from objecting to him as a
husband whose position of royal high
ness was sustained by such dazzling
wealth!
Well, one day his mother took suddenly
ill and diet!, and, she having previously
expressed a desire to be buried in her na
tive land, her son set out for India with
her remains. On arriving at the Isthmus
of Suez he was obliged to remain two or
three days for the steamer, and, not know
ing what to do with himself to pass the
time, he concluded to visit the missionary
school established there, lieing much in
terested in such institutions On present
ing himself to the superintendent, who
had no idea of his rank or position, the
children of the school were shown off and,
among the rest, a bright-eyed little miWat,
to girl, aliout thirteen years of age, repeat
ed a piece of poetry in such a manner ag
to excite a great interest in the Prince.
On retiring, the Prince presented the su.
perintendent with twenty guineas, whose
surprise did not last verv long liefore dis
covering that the noble donorwas a Prince
of India.
On the following day the Prince again
presented himself, and requested that the
little mulatto girl should repeat the poetry
liefore recited. After she had finished itt
and lieen put through all her paces, th#
Prince told the superintendent that, if it
was possible to be accomplished, he do«
aired to marry that girl. At first the
Prince's"declaration was received as n
complimentary joke, but the earnest man
ner of the Prince, to their surprise, stion
convinced them of the contrary. He
then told the superintendent that he was
on his way to India and that, if no ob*tar
clcs presented themselves, he should re
turn in six weeks and claim his bridtfc
The missionaries, though proud of having
one ot their pupils so highly appreciated^
deemed it prudent to inform the Priuc®
that the young girl of which he was so
enamored was the illegitimate child of ft
banker at Cairo, who had afterward mar
ried a wealthy lady, and who still sent a
small annuity for the maintenance of the
girl antl her mother, who was in very
humble circumstances. The Prince re
plied that as his own father had bail forty
wives it would lie no objection to the girl
he should tnarry if her father hat] obly
two wives! So the Prince left a large sum
of money with the lady missionary, with
instructions to have the young girl ready
by his return.
Although the missionaries believed that
it was a mye freak, antl that they would
probably never see the Print e again, still
they went to work to teach the girl what
they could in so short a time of English
manners and customs, tor she hardly
knew how to use a knife antl fork even,
antl to have prepared for her a proper
trousseau Before the time had elapsed
Prince Duieep Singh had returned so
great wa- his impatience that he could not
even wait for the regular steamer, ami so
chartered one expressly to bring hint
sooner. Hut on pressing his marriage hts
Was told that the laws of the country re
quired a residence of at least fourteen day*
liefore marriage could lie celebrated, sot no
prince was obliged to submit and wait
patiently for the time to elapse. In tho
meantime he took two large houses, oppo»
aite each other, and hot] them handsomely
titled up, placing his affianced and motheif
in one and himself in the other. In tint
meantime lie visited her dully, making her
costly present.-, and enlightening her i.„
Euro|iean ways antl the customs of life.
Finally the day of their liuptialsarrivetl,
and according to'rejsirt the recent diamond
weddings of tlie United States would pain
liefore the gorgeous splendor of this affair.
The Prince had endowed her with all the
magnificent jewels inherited by his ances
tors, and on her wedding night she shone
in a blaze of glory. He took her to En
gland, where she haa since lieen enjoying
high life, s|K-nding her summers at the
Prince's magnificent country seat. She,of
course, is entitled to the pit* of all nobles
at court antl elsewhere, and has been for
years a toast. Every year since his mar
riage the Prince has sent £2,000 to the mis.
sionary school at Suez, which lie promised,
to endow. Here is matter for a XLrat-class
romance of an Indian Prince.—-London
