The Egyptian officers ver pre xtly nfoved by the nielui'.ies, which, in their w ild, passionate, barbaric cadences, had a singular charm for my car. The songs were prin cipally of love, but of higher character than the common songs of tho people. Tho Pasha transla ted a brace for us. Uno related to the loves ol a boy and maiden, the former of whom was hum ble, the latter tho daughter ot a Uey. ihey saw and loved each other, but the difference iu their stations prevented tho fulfilment of their hopes. One day, ns the girl was seated at her window, a funeral passed through the street below. She askul the name of the dead person, and they an no , erd "Levi," the name of her beloved, whom the v'. i'.'iico tf his p.v-iiou had deprived of life.

The Pasha kd the way into tiie dining-room, stopping in an ante chamber, where a group of slaves were ready w ith pitchers, ewers and napkins, and wo performed the ciistotuaiy washing of hands.

Dr. Iieiu took me one day to visit the celebrated SeUeh (Lady) N'asra, the daughter of the lastKing of Scnnaar and brother of the present Shekh of that province. She in awomnn of almost masculine! titU rjt and energy, and may be said to govern Sen ii i ir at present. Ail tho Arab shekhs, as well as tliu .population at large, havo iho greatest respect; fr her, and invariably ask her advice, iu any cri-'fi;of'alTitw.- Her brother, ldris Wed Adlan, not w iihstitudiiig bis nominal subjection to Egypt, mitpocscsfts absolute sway over several liuridrud villages, and is called King of Kulle. Tho Lady v Nasi retains the title of Sultan, on account of her '-.fr'cAit'rriirr) the ancient royal house of Scnnaar. Sho has a palace ut Soriba, on the lilue Nile, which according to Uepsius, exhibits a degree of w ealth and Btato very rare in Soudan. She was then in Khartoum, on a visit, with her husband, Moham med Pelulloh, the son of a former Viser of her father, King Adlan. We found tho Lady Nasra at borne, seated on a a carpet in her audience-hall, her husband and Shekh Abd el-Kador the Shekh of Khartoum, who married her daughter by former husband occupying an adjacent carpet. She gave the Con sul her baud, saluted me as a stranger, with an inclination of tier head, and we seated our olres on ths floor opposite to her. She was about forty-flvo years old, but appeared younger, and .ill rotaine I the traces of her former beauty. Her skin was a pale bronze color, hor eyes large and expressive, nnj her face remarkable for its in telligence and energy. All her motions were graceful and dignified, and under more favorable eircuuisatuces sht might have booonio a sort of Ethiopian Zannhia. She wore a single roXe of very fine white muslin, and which she sometimes folded so an to conceal her features, and sometimes ullowod to full to her waitlrevealing the somen but over ripe niiMnlt,;lllll'0l'n"lllll)'l;lllllli.'11 hnndlnl ot rice from tll 'i'l'O only additional dndi was a has- ' kct b( '"" n1"' rcdishcs.

THE LONG AGO. I I ' Oh '. a wonderful stream is the river Time, As it runs through the realms of tears, Willi a faultless rhythm and a musical rhyme, And a broader Sweep, and a surge sublime, And blends with the ocean of years. How the winters are drifting like flakes of snow And the summers like buds between, And the year iu the sheaf so they como and fi". thev On the river's breast, with its ebb and flow, As it glides in the shadow and sheen. There is a ma'ie tl isle tin the river of Time. Where the softest of airs are playing ; There's a cloudiess sky and a tropical clime, And a song as sweet as a vesper chime. And the Junes with the roses are staying. And the nama of this isle is the Long Ago And we bury our treasures there ; There are brows of beauty an J bosom of snow- Thero are heaps of duat, but we love thcni so 1 There arc trinkets and trestes of hair. j ; i I j There ari fragments of that nobody sings, And a part of an infant's prayer ; lucre sa line uiiswepi, mm a .,a.T w .u..-t tr.uSs, There are broken vows, and pieces of rings, And the garments that she used to wear. There arc hands that are waved when the fairy sll)re By the mirage is lifted in uir ; And wc sometimes hear, through the turbulent roar, Sweet voices wc heard iu tho days gnno before, When the wind down the river is fair. Oh ! remembered for aye bo tho blessed isle, All the day of life till ni,lit When tho evening comes ith its beautiful -smile, And cur eyes are closed iu slumber awhile, May that "greenwood" of soul be in sight.

" An intelcctual, elderly French woman, an cmi'jree, resided in proviucicial town. One day sho went tu pay a visit to a Russian lady uf her acquaintance. In many of the houses in the coun try, the staircases arc covered by trap-doors. The t icnch laay, who nan not remai Keu one oi mcse deceptive openings, in proceeding to dectnd, fell down about fifteen wudon steps. What coursu did the lady of the house take? The reader would not easily guess. Yt ithout even seeking to inlorm herself w hether her unfortunate friend wus dead or alive without running to her aid,' without sending for a surgeon, or even culling for help, she ran devoutly to shut herself up in her oratory, there to riy the Holy Virgin to come to the suc cor of the poor dead, or wounded either one or the other, us it might please God to ordain. Mean time the wounded not the dead hud lime to rise, and, there being no limb broken, to reascend into the unte-chumber, and to cause herself to be con veyed home before her pious friend hud quilted her cushion of prayer. That individual could not, indeed, be brought out of her asylum, until she had been loudly assured, through the key-hole, that the accident was without serious conse quences, aud that her friend had returned home. Upon this, active charity again awuko in the breast of tho good Russian devotee, who, recog nizing the efficacy of her prayers, hastened tu ciuusly to her friend's housf, intistcd ou entering i ; finnftnipnt.

"Scarcely hod he touched the ground, when, slowly and majestically, he ro-cntcred his, coach, took another turn on tho pier, and enuio back again to the church, w here he and his people re- commenced the previous ceremony. This game was renewed until daybreak. At tho last repe i titioii the officer gave orders to return to the castle without noiiip. A few minutes after, all were in their beds.

Unconscious of thino audience, Careless of praises ns of bliiinc, In simploncss and innocence Thy gentle life pursues its aim, So tender and serene that we might blush 'for shame.
