Ev ery one preiwcd forward to seo tho hero of hin ncuno. Tho firat who niiiiroaelicd liim, an officer in tho army, gave him twenty-live roubles silver. The exam pin was followed : nolilcmen, merchant, poasantN, took out their nurses somo pave poldcn, oiuo silver coin; hoiuo threw into his hat a fow eoiuxT oonoeks ; all cave what they could, "tiod bless you, noblo frioud I " was licanl from every side. The namo of this cenorous man is llaiil Marrin, a nalira of the Uovernnient of THroslnff. Being a roofur bv trade, ho for uianv Tears lived in at l'etorsburifh, nursiiing his vocation ; but nfterwards rngageil himsolf as a boilor-mukcr at the Uovern nient foundry of Kolpino. Limt year he took leave of ahsonco and visited his native village Having iont a fow months with hi friends, ho was re turning to St. lYtorsburgh by way of Moscow, to avail himself of the railways. Iio came to the ancient capital the day before tho fire; and, nut having caught tho train, was obliged to remain till tho next day. Ah this was his first arrival in Moscow, ho took tho opportunity of seeing the Kremlin, tho old fortress, and to visit its venerable athcdrals. There, from some passers-by, ho heard uf the fire, and hastened to the spot, where ho o uobly distinguished himself. At three o'clock in tho afternoon of tho snmo day ho took his seat in a railway carriage. On tho l.Jlh of tho same month ho reached St. rotersburgh, and again enlisted himself in tho number of woi k uion ut Kolpiuo. la two days after ho was sum moned to the office of the general police-master of tho eapitol, whore ho was told that tho Emperor ilusired to seo him. lie was accordingly token to tlm ul.icu. His Imperial Majesty received Marrin in Ins cabinet, and was pleased to say to hiin w hen Iio. entered. " 1 thank vuu fir a good notion. Em brace me, ami relate how you did it." In simple word Mirnn told his story; and, when no mushed tho Emperor dismissed him, saying "iinr you mav g: but in ease of need come to mo nt nny time." Soon afterwords Marrin was rowanled with a modal and a sum uf ouo hundred and fifty loubles silver. PRESERVATION OF THE EYES. " You should never touch your eye but with your cllsiw. ( I iveero, Thcro is a tradition at least as old as tlio Talmud, thit the cyos aro strengthened by drawing the ti item across Ihoevelnls in a liorriminuil direction Exf resident Adams, who was affootod with an obstruction of the tear passage, used this method to get rid uf Iho accumulated lluid, and the ancient practice was brought into greater notice by the examplo of (he illustriou Ktalvsmaiii The obso lete theory, that tho interior surface of tho eyeball iMs-oines Hatlened as ngu ailvnnccs, was again ro- vnoil, una it beoomos a husiness to ailvertisu in- Mruetioua for kneading llio organ iuto shape with the lingers for tho miHlerute sum nr ten dollars. tho tell-tiilo Kpuetiicles might bo laid asulo, and anoiont ladies and gentlemen be enabled to sow anil read with ull tho sharpness of a miss in her teens. It cannot bo expected that operations founded on ft false theory can be safe in practice. It is untrue that the outer Muf.ico uf the eye becomes flatter with advancing ago, nnd therefore manipulations to restore what is wanting, in an organ so delicate of structure tliut a rude push may bo followed by periietunl darkness, should bo avoided. The writer was lately called to visit an aged female, w ho had lieon iiflcriug acutely for months, after submitting while in hoalth to tho manipulations of a rejuven ating itinerant. The lens was dislocated and press ed on tho scusutivo nerves at the margin of the pupil. Other eases of injury attributed manipula tions, stii-U as cross-eyes, douhlod vision, &o., have " come under the writer' notice. Last month, in presence of tho oditor, he operated for a cataract in tho case uf a lady, whoso vision, with tho aid uf spectacles, wan goua until alio was induced r.y piau .j - l . i si lilo advertisomonti to pay for a course of lessons' After the third losnon.vission becamo indistiuot and Isliudness ultimately followed. Ir. U. was culled tu examine a contlomao who had alwavs enioved Meollent fight until it waa lost in a moment. The patient had been at a party of fiiouils, w lion a jnsrsoB stepped auddenly behind him, and uovoring Ixilh eyes with the hands, wished him to guess who It Wan. The former, without speaking a word, Cfideavored to escape from the pressure, and when tlie eyo-lids we're oioned ho was entirely bereft of ight. Although tlioro waa not the least uiiearanee of injury, yot the snflbrer romuiued hopelessly mina. from uu meuincnoiy exuinpie, i'r. u. eon eludes that the eyca aro liublo to iiyury even from There ia popular notion aanctionod even by medical men, who ought to know better, that eyes are preserved by opening thorn every moruing in a I bimin of eold water. Some uf the worst ca-es id or film on I lie mi face of the eye, has lieeu witnessed in those who lujasted of this prai- tire. W hen a drop uf water pets into tho wind-! pipe, the nostril, or tho ear, iiritation is produced, and when .the eve is opened under w ater, the nen "alien is anything but agreeable. The rye is by a efcrclion admirably adapted to the'iuoliniisof llio lid over its siirliu-e, and as this secretion is partially soluablo in wnter.lt is as inconsistent with roininoii sense to wash it away, ns it is to remove tho oil from the wheels of mneliiniiry. N hen the general henhh is mlmst, it is astonish ing what an amount of lalsir the organ of vision will endure : yet when it is depressed, especially by meiiUil disturbance during a periislical liim lio'ii they nro easily ilerangeil by loo close application to liiiMiicss. W hen they hae bceomo weak, mneh fnr their preservation depends on tho proper niaii - ngeiiiont ol the light to which Ihey are exisised. When the light is in excess, it should bo diminished, and when it is deficient, labor uhoiild be discontin-1 ued.

The gist of Iho wlinlo matter Is just this; lei your eyes aliiiie, nnd Ihey may servo von nil your days; should they l-eei,nie out of uriler, apply to that very iiiimrlant personage, your family physi cian, nnd ho will instruct yuu how tu "mind your eyes." A 1'. N'iiW. THE ENGLISH PEASANT. [HOWITT.] Tho condition of tho West Indian slave is better and happier than that of tho English peasantry. Ctintiiwn Asucrtinn, The land for me, tho land for mo. Where every living soul is free : W hero w inter may come, whero storms may rave, nut llio tyrant daro not bring his slave. I should hate In dwell in a summer land Whore flowers spring un on every hand Whore tho breexo is glad and tho heavens arc fair, Hut the taint of Mood is every w hero. I saw a peasant sit in his door, When his weekly toil in tho field was o'er ; llo sat on the bench his grandsiro made, Ho sat in his father's walnut shade. 'Twns tho golden hour uf an April morn j Lightly the lark sprang from the corn, Tho blossoming trees shono puro nnd while, And the young loaves quivered in tho light : Tho Sabbath bells, with a holy glee, ore ringing o'er woodland, heath, nnd lea ; Twns a season whoso living influence ran Through air, through earth, and tho heart uf man. No feeblo joy was Hint peasant's lot, As his children gamboled before his cot, And archly mimicked the toils nnd carea That coming life shall make truly theirs. But their mother, with brcakfust call, anon fame forth, nnd their merry mask was gone; 'Twas a beautiful sight, as, meekly still, They sat, in their joy, on tho cottage sill. Tho siro looked on them ho looked to the skies; I read his heart's language in his eyes ; Lightly ho rose, and lightly ho trod, To pour out his soul in the house of God. And is Mm tho man, thou canting knave. Thou hast dared to compare with the w eeping slave? Away I find one slave in the world to cupo With him, in his heart, his home, his hope. He is not on thy lands of sin and pain, Searod, scarred with tho lash, and cramped with pain In thy burning clime, where tho heart is cold, And man, liko tho beast, is bought and sold. But, O, thou slanderer, false and vile, Ihiro but to harm that garden stile Iaro but to oitlraie that lowly thatch laro but to oree that peasant's latch, And thy craven soul shall wildly quake At tho thunder peal tho doud might wake j For a myriad tongues of firo shall sound As if overy stone cried from the ground. The Indignant thrill liko flame shall spread, till tlio isle itself roeks 'ncath thy tread, Anil a voice Irom people, and peer, and throne. Shall ring in thine ears, Atono, otoue ! For Freedom is an equal pucBt In princely hall and in peasant's nest ; The palace is filled with her living light, And sho watches the hamlet day and night. Tho land for me tho land for mo, Where every living soul is free, Whcro winter may como, whero storms may ruvo, But tho tyrant dure nut bring his slave ! From the N. Y. Musical World and Times.

"My illustrious Friend nnd Joy of mv Liver! Tho thing you ask of mo is both dillicutt ami use less.

Tho intelligence of man appears to less udvantago m tho powerful impulse which it give to matter than in tho meas ure and delicacy uf tho action which it enforces. 1 was present not long ago at a hideous scene 1 forgot ull the iirgiiineulH irguinst tlie nnniediatc overthrow of slavery. 1 liavo just seen n family of blacks sold at auction, ut noon-day, in tho pub lic square nt Charleston, 1 hey wero placed un n cart, as if fur punishment; a red flag was hoisted at their sulo lit emblem ot criuio nud of slavery, Tho negroes mid negresses had tho sauio indiffer ent air a tho tiooplu who wero looking at them. l ho auctioneer, w no, l was told, wns wen received in society, praised in a bantering way tho qualities of a negro, "very intelligent, and first-rate gar- denor, I ho purchasers went up to tho men, wo men and children, opened their mouths, and exam ined their teeth bidding limn took place', ntifl the bargains wore struck off. Twenty stops off, pre cisely in the sumo manner, they wero selling an ass. A liorso was also put up. Tho price of the man was 10',I; tho horse cost !SJ moro. Tho day commenced with these horrible impres sions was finished on a slave plantation. 1'his was the afler-pieco following the tragedy. Tho owner of tho plantation is a German, certainly the least cruel and the least tyrannical of men ; he seemed to mo literally oppressed by his blacks. M", who is human, is unwilling to boat his slaves. The slaves, by no menus grateful, labor with great carelessness and indolence. When he entered a cabin wln'ie the negroes were employed in cleaning cotton, he merely showed them how badlv their woik was done, and explained tu us I 1.!... l... l..
