A LEAF FROM THE JOURNAL OF LIEUT. W
D. PORTER.
But one work, translated in English,
has as yet appeared before the public
giviag the Turkish A1 coram, or Bible.'
This is full of inaccuracies, and does not
detail the mixed religion of the Musse>
man, which is divided into as many sect s
as are the Christian denominations. We
are all familiar with the fact of the two
great factions in the Turkish religion?
those who have Mahomet, and those who
call Ali their head. The latter are look
ed upon in the same light as the Chris
tians regard the Jews. But there an*
sects very much resembling the Chris
tians?the Howling Dervishes, for in
stance. These may properly be called
the Methodists of theMahomedan church; I
they are oniy rather more enthusiastic,
and their ceremonies characterised by
superstitions. To describe them fullv.
would be utterly impossible, and but V
hunt description can be given of them at
best; still after naming a few of the other
sects, we will endeavor to describe their
ceremonies. There is the plain Ma
homedan or orthodox church; the Dirtv
Dervishes; the Howling Dervishes; the
1 urnmg Dervishes, or Turkish Shaking 1
Quakers; the true followers of Mahomet,
and the followers of Ah; the Begging
Dervishes, and the Silent Dervishes. " |
On entering the small and not very
peat mosque of the Howling Dervishes,
we found several of them already present
and beginning a lew growling chant. In
a few moments, as if animated by the I
presence of the Christian dogs, several
others joined the singers and raised the
growl a note or two higher. Their dress
consisted of nothing but a pair of loose
lurkish trowsers, and a small skull cap
on their heads. In this costume, they I
began to move around, one after another,
a circle, now and then one or two
dropping in and joining the dance, which
was slow and measured at first, but as
their voices rose, the dance became more
animated, while their motions resembled
the Indian buffalo dance?stooping, jump-1
ing and contorting their bodies in even I
conceivable manner,' but the chaunt soon
rose to a dismal howl; several juveniles
stepped into the dance, and theirsqueak
mg voices and quick convulsions of their
bodies, gave the whole thing a still more
ludicrous appearance. Still louder rose
the howl?resembling a combination of
the Indian war-whoop, the hoarse moan
mgs of the winds, the growl of some wild
beast, the chatter of the monkev and the
shrill squeal of the pig.
But all these horrible noises were per
fectly eclipsed by the contortions of the
faces, muscles and body. Their eyes
rolled until nothing but the whites coul.l
be seen. Their tonguea were iapj**. out
of their mouths and frothing, dancing
jumping, crawling, sertaming, rolling,
twisting themselves in every conceivable
manner, until completely exhausted they
fell, some on their faces, others on then
sides and backs; and after nature ha.
become apparently restored, they again
rose to their feet, began maiming them
selves in the most shocking manner w
knives, sharp instruments, and aiain ^ .
ing through the same oeremony of hous
ing, squealing, dancing, and 'falling in
sensible ; where, laying sometime, thfv
quietly arose and asked the Cbri.t.ai
dogs for money, which we, as a mattci
of course, gave them.
The turning Dervishes next attracted
our attention ; their mosque is plain and
spacious. We found some twenty or
thirty already on the plain going through
their revolving. The dress of this order
consists of a conical cap and loose fro-k
of white stuff, and while turning around
in their dance they resembled a candle
extinguisher. These, too, have a sone,
but one low and melodious. Their whole
ceremony consists in turning round, and
by long practice aiid stretching out their
arms, the revolutions of the persons be
come so rapid that they resemble a cone
surrounded by a flat disc. These, too
begged a few favors from the Christian
visitors, and we willingly gave it fer the
privilege of seeing their small fry lions.
1 he dirty Dervishes' religion consists in |
merelv never changing any article of
clothing, until it aetual drops off in rags
and in remaining, from the date of their
entering the order until death, abomina
bly filthy, never sweeping their apart
ments, and never sleeping on anything
in a clean place.
But it is a very easy matter for a Turk
to become a dirty Dervish ; though they
frequently bathe, they seldom chanjre
their clothing. The thoughts, feelings,
habits, and manners of the Turks are de
cidedly of a low order ; they have a few
books of light literature, but none on any
of the important sciences. He smokt*
his pipe, drinks his coffee, and lolls in
the lap of his wife or slave, dates every
thing from Frankinstan, (Christian land )
and dreams of nothing else but a sensual
paradise from his earliest years to old
age ; he is a sensualist, and expects af
ter death to enjoy a sensual paradise.
Such is the lurk of the present day, and
such he will be while be has as his guide
the Koran; he looks upon the whole
world with contempt, and whatever mis
fortune overtakes him?he quietly sub
mits to his kisnet, (fate.) Being not at
progressive, his constant expression on
all occasions is, ? Cheuashe, cheuashe,"
take it easy, take it easy."

A TnaiLLiyo Sketch.?At a temncr
ince meeting in Philadelphia, some y!*rs
igo, a learned clergyman spoke in favor of
ivine as a drink, demonstrating it to his
)wn satisfaction to be scriptural, eentle
naiily, and healthful. When the iren
leman sat down, a plain, elderly man
irose, and asked the liberty of sayinc a
ew words. Permission being granted
le spoke as follows :
'' ^ y0"1^ f"end of mine, said he. who
l&d long been intemperate, was prevailed
>n, to the joy of his friends, to take the
pledge of entire abstinence from all that
ivould intoxicate. He hept his plsdge
faithfully for some time, though the struir
?le with his appetite was f-arful, till one
m aJsocial Party, wine was
banded around. They cane to a clenrv
man present, who took a glass, saying a
W.n?^,n v'nd'?"lon of practice.
Well, thought the young man. * if &
clergyman can take wine, and justify it
so well, why not I V So he took a glass.
It instantly rekindlea his fiery and slum
bering appetite; and after a rapid down
ward course, he died of delirium tremens,
a raving madman!'
The old man paused for utterance, and
was only able to add :
Rn!i man was mv only son,
and the clergyman was the iW Dr. who
has just addressed this assembly "

descriptions in Great Britain and Ireland
