power and resources at the Sultan's command.'
Hut he now determined to act for himself, and
to lake possession of Syria, which he sa'Kl had
been promised to him for his services 'in thc
war with (.'recce. Towards the end Octo
ber, lvU, Mchemet Ali sent his son Ibrahim
with an army of from 40,000 to 50,000 men
to Syria. A series of dreadful conflicts en
frued. Thc siege of Jean dV2cre was long and
the struggle desperate, but on the. 27 th of May,
l"?oJ, the place was taken and the garrison!
made prisoners with Abdallah, the governor j
of Lhe province. Ibrahim then swept over thc : j
country to the northward, successful every '
where against the forces of the Sultan, and
wvi ready to march upon Constantinople itself. '
The Turkish government became alarmed. :
Sf'tcr calling ou (ircat Britain for aid in vain,
and after another dreadful encounter with Ibra
him, the Sultan, threw himself, into the arms
.cf Kuseia. An immense Russian force was
brought into the Turkish dominions, but the
Sultan becoming as fearful of Russian alliance
as of Mehemet Alli'd rebellion, concluded to
give up Syria. The dependance en Russia
had however involved Turkey in bonds which
could. not be broken; and a treaty was agreed!
upon on the 6th of July, 1533, called the
trcavof U-nkiar Skelessi, which placed Tur
key, in the power of Russia to a humiliating
"gree. The duration of the treaty Was 22m i
to eight years. From that time to this,
yri-i has often been in partial revolt against
tue government of Ibraliim, and thc Sultan
has beeiitceking an opportunity. to recover it.

Pitissian Drunkenness.
Rulwcr, in 1)i:vi:i;eaux, tells us that Rus
sian ladies tiiiuk most gratefully the gentle
man who honors them by making them drunk.
It is said, from late accounts, that, nearly a
fourth part of .the revenue of Russia is derived
i from the sale of spirits. This sale is kept
entirely in thc hands .of' the imperial govern
ment. The out-spread wings of the Russian
eagle are over the door of every gin shop, in
every village throughout that vast cnipire.
Mr. Pinkerton calculates that "the enormous
quantity of eighty-two milirous of gallons of
brandy alone, arc drunk every year by the
peasantry of the empire A. O. ricaiunc.

In one of the freezing days of our climate, '!
mt
a youug physician, recently married, invited
his wife to accompany him on a visit to 'one
of his patients. , '
" You arc romancing, James: what! visit a
family without an introduction, or an invita
tion, or an exchange of cards!"
"In this family, my dear Amanda, there is
no ceremony of cards," said James,' "but
they will not hi less pleased to see you."
"I never used to go to sec poor people, but'
continued she, after a short deliberation,"' I
will go u ith you any where." . ''p.
They passed from the handsome utreet of
their residence, to a small public square, ami
crossing over, entered a small alley, in which
Amanda saw a fow of houses built in a man
ner that showed they were for the laboring
class. Crossing the whole range they entered
the last house, and at the first door Dr. liCd
son gave a gentle rap. A plain dressed wo
man opened it and welcomed them.
Two chairs were immediately set out, cne
with the hick broken oil", the other one rick
ety and unstable.
JJefore the fire were two little children sea
ted on the hearth, making a noise, which the
attendant female in vain endeavored to -quell.
A girl about ten years of ago came out of a
small bed room and smiled as she spoke.;
In a large rude chair sat a thin female. S!:e
looked up when Dr. Lcdsou addressed her,
but neither smiled or spoke. Her complexion
was sallow by illness, her lower jaw had fal
len from its socket, and her tcetli chattered
with the vain endeavor to close hor mouth.
After receiving some nourishment at the hands
of her companion she seemed revived.
"I am glad to see you, Doctor, though I had
hoped to have been released from my wretched
ness before now. I do not complain, but I suf
fer" she shivered and stopped suddenly, but
in an instant said, "I thought it very hard
when I lost my child l ist summer I see it
was kind: what would have become of it now!
I must leave these, young as they are, to take
care of themselves, and my husband is hone of
the steadiest."
She did not weep: she was past thnt point
of human fuffering. Amanda -.looked on in
silence. SbC had Jearncu wore ot litofs state
, volume. She felt now a wiser woman I
.u ei,ritoeil) lQ uVU;J have been at thir-
...iive;
It brings down all our vanities and little re-
j pinings a spectacle of such woe. J: ven the
almost liiscnsihilitv ot tlic Sick was more
u-tWls vour s-fclerP' a,kej lu,, woman.
"Xo," said James, and Amanda ski led as
he replied, "It is my wife.
"Is it your wife!" said the, showhig some
vivacity. "I low -sweet she looks. Can she
sing! Oh! can she sing,
"I would not live always!"
How often had Amanda sung that carelessly
before. She felt awed and humbled ;iow bv
p
every syllable that Heated on her soft rich
tone around the narrow apartment.
The dying one raised her eyes so tl ankfuily
that she cvn looked pretty. A hectic, light
relieved her vivid countenance. She said in
audibly, "I hear the angels singing around
me," and then relapsed into a state cf almost
insensibility.
The little girl shook hands beseechingly as
they left, and in a subdued voice Amanda whis
pered,' ''Wc will take caro of you." "
Who like the physician, save indeed the
minister, is called upon to see human nature
in every shadow of a tint! t Thc rich and the
poor, the delicate and the coarse; thc learned
and the ignorant, come before him without d.s-.
guise. , - .
Amanda thought before that she loved her
husband; but luxury is a dead sea atmosphere, f
in which the nobler passions sicken and lie I
motionless. She clung to James' arm as they
returned home with a fueling of devotion to j
him, that she had never imagined before; and
in the pleasure she experienced in soften in r
the horrors of her fellow-creatures' poverty,
she found every- day new cause to rejoice in
having shared her fortune with one who, if he
brought her no addition of earth's wealth, had
taught her that there is a way of employing
it that will awaken delight. ":

Dr. bVankiins Wife.
I'ranklin, in his sketch, of his life and hab

gaj wife. A wife could scarcd'y make a pret
tier apology for pin chu sing the' first piece of
luxury.' , .
"It was lucky for., m that I had one ns ;
much disposed, to -industry and frugality as"
myself. She. assisted. me cheerfully in my bu
siness, folding and stitching pamphlets, and
tending shop, purchasing old linen rags for
making paper, etc. We kept no idJj ser
vants; our table was plain -and simple, ;cur
furniture of the cheapest sort. For , instance,
my breakfast for a long time, bread and milk,
(uo tea,) and I eat it out of a two-penny por-
ringer, with a pewter spoon; but - mark how
luxury will enter families, and make a pro
gross in spite of principle; being called " one
morning to breakfast; 1 ' found it in a china
bowl, with a spoon of silver. They" had been
bought, for. me without my knowledge, by my
wife, and had cost the enormous' sum of three
and twenty shillings: for which "shc liad no
other excuse or apology to make, but that she
thought her husband deserved a silver spoon
and a china bowl, as well as any of her neigh
bors. This was the first" appearance of plate
or cliina in our house, which afterwards in
the course of years, as. pur wealth increased,
augmented gradually to several hundred pounds
