EVENING STAR.
"THE FIBS! HAN 1 KILLED '*
A young English sailor, on the verge
of the Black Sea, gives an account of a
skirmish in winch he was engaged with
a party of Russians, one of whom he
shot:
'? We dispersed, a few hundred yards'
uistance from the beach, to keep ih<
coast clear while the boats'crews made I
prizes of tue guns. The enemy had the
advantage of the wood, aud also of know- i
mg the country well. A troop of them i
showed in advance, and we were ordered I
to fire. I took steady aim, and fired on
my man at about sixty yards. He fell |
.ike a stone. At the same time a broad
side from the went in among th<
trees, and the enemy disappeared, we
could scarce tell how. I felt as ihougi
I must go up to him, to see whether he
was d*ad or alive. lie laj- .piite still,
aud 1 was more afraid of him lying so
than w hen he stood facing mo a few min
utes before. It is a strange feeling to
come over you all at once that vou have
killed a man. lie had uubuttoned bis
jacket, and was pressing his hand over
'.he iioiu of his chest, where the wound
was. lie breathed hard, and the blo*l
poured from the wound, and also from
his mouth, every breath he took. Ili-1
[Ve was as white as death, and his evet
looked so big and bright as he turned and i
stared at me : I shad newt forget it. H?
was a fine young fellow, not more thar
ti\e and twenty. I went down on my
knees beside him, and mv breast lelt as
full as thoutrh my heart would burst lb
had a real English face, and did not look
nkc an enemy. Wha^ 1 felt I never can
tell, but if my lite would have saved
his, 1 believe I should have given it. 1
laid his head on my knee, and he grasped
hold of my hand, aud tried to speak, but
his voice was gone. I could not tell a
word he said, and every time he tried to
speak the blood poured out so 1 knew it
would he over. I am not ashamed u
.sav 'hat 1 was worse than he; for he
never shed a t?nr, and 1 couldn't help it.
ilia eyes v.-. re closing, when a gun whv
('red iiotu the , to order ut aboard.
aud that around him. He pointed to
the beach, where the boat was just push
ing oil wiuh the guns which we h*u
taken, and whera our mariners wen
waiting to man the second boat, ami
then he pomied to the wood, where th
CUcItjy wsm concealed. Poor tV-tlow 1 h?
iitiic thought how I had shot him down
l was wondvriug bow t could leave him
'o die, and no one near hiui. when h
had something iike a convulsion lur a

The following is- from the speech deliv
ered by Mr Macready, not iong since,
before the Sherborne Literary lustitu
Hon:
The first time I visited Canterbury.
1 wished, of course, to see the Cathedra'l.
A gentleman there b\ the name of ,\ib
tin, the surveyor and architect of the
building accompanied me. lie had re
decoratid almost tne whole of the inte
rn i, and had restored the dilapidated
portion of the western front. Ho was
the artificer of his own fortune, and had
raised himself to this position from a
state of almost actual destitution ; he
h.id formerly been the servant, of a frienu
ot mine, and when he reached Canter
bury he had not half a crown in his
pocket He directed my attention to
everything worthy of notice. It wa
opposite the western front that he stoou
uuh me, before what seemed the site of
a small shed or stall, then unoccupied,
and said ? Upon this spot a little barber
shop used to stand. The la*t time Lord
Kilter den came down here, he brought
ms son with him, and it was my duty,
oi course, to attend them over the Cathe
II1' 1 .^en we ca,"e to this side of it
ie led his son up to this very spot, and
said to him, " Charles, you see this little
shop: J have brought you here on pur
ple to show it to you. In that shoo
your grandfather used to shave for a
' pmiy" ,'ihaLis tlie Pro,,dpsf reflection
of my life. W hile you live, never forget
that, my dear Charles.'' And this man,
the son of a poor barber, was the Lord
Justice ot England. Far the very
reason, therefore, that the chances of
>uc i great success are rare, we should
ditirm'?f?tV? pliU1u m imIjrovui^ thecon

press, or fortune may not befriend."
A Ckau Story.?A ludicrous scene oc
curred a short time since on one of our
most frequented wharves, of which, per
haps, you may not have heard. It seems
some hirsute hunter had captured a huge
grizzly bear up among the mountains
somewhere.and, intent upon "realizing"
something <mt of him, had duly e*"ed
him, brought, him to the city, and placed
hnu on exhibition in a room opening, foe
will say. upon Pacific wharf. Over the
door he posted in conspicuous, latters the
legend ^ (as Peeuix would have it)o!

cated, raw-boned, long-legged, lank Piite
county man, fresh from the mines, (ex
cessively vvtdant^and matter of fact, and
independent with all,) in shuffling down
the street, read the sign and thought he'd
liKe to look at the "critter so ho paid
the admission lee, and, after satisfying
his curiosity, went on his way, 'The
day after, one of our German fellow citi
zens opened the vei;y next rown to that

over his door a sign on which was pmited

Anecdote of Isaac Mii.htkr.?At Cam
bridge, as well as at other colleges, the
sizar students were, in consideration of
certain pecuniary privileges, expected to
perform various offices of a menialChar
acter, such as riging the chapel bell,
serving up the first dish to the college
reliows in the dining hall, ete. These
s?>i vices have now for some yean been
dispensed with at all the colleges. In the
south of l5aac Milner, however, (after
wards Dean of Queen's College, Cam
bridge) ho had, as a poor scholar tailing
on to eminence by painful self-denial, to
perform the oilier of a sizar. It ia recor
ded of him. that in waiting at dinner sp
un the heads of the college, the young
- udent let fall a tureen full of soup, be
ie no small disappointment, doubtless,
f i he appetized guests. A smart rebuke
was aduiinistfwrd to him for his careleMa
II-. ss. "When I am in power I will abol
ish this nuisance, gentlemen," was thera
ply. A hearty laugh was the result, ee
u likely did it seem that the raw, un
couth. blundering Yorkshire lad should
ever rise to be vice-chancellor of his uni
v. i>ity. Yet, in a few years be did aU
f:tin that eminence, as well as the honor
of uicomparabiles attached to his degree.
Lie had the satisfaction of fulfilling his
boyish declaration, and relieved the aixer
.students from the uncalled-for burdeft
which he in his own youth had boroa.
