DAILY INTELLIGENCER Familiar Quotations. We must abandon, I fear, all hope of ascertaining where tbe .exclamation. ••Consistency, Thou art a jewel," was earliest put into print. There remain, however, an immense number of famil iar quotations, tbe origin of which, tboogh not generally known, are oft times carious enough. For instance, tbe common phraae, "Where the shoe pinches," which so shrewdly expresses a truth, comes to us from Plutarch, who wrote his famous "Parallel Lines" in the first century of tbe Christian ma. It is to be found in his "Life of .Emilias Paulus." A Roman was divorced fro (9 his wife, and, "being highly blame i by all his friends—who demanded, 'Was she not chaste ? was she not fair *' —holding out her shoe, asked them whether it was not new and 'Yet,' added he, 'none of you can tell where it pinches me.' " To this, of course, uo rejoinder could bo made. What phrase is in more frequent aad ordinary use, gravely or facetiously, than, "Adding insult to iajury Yet it has reached us in a fable by Pbtedrus, a Roman author, wbolired in the reign of Emperor Aagustas Cttsar, nearly nineteen hunered years ago, and whose writings were first discovered to mod ern literature in 159<i, at Übeiins, ia France. The fable is tailed "The Bald Man and the Fly," and reads thtu: "A fly bit at the bare pate of a bald aian, who, endeavoring to crush it, jfave himself a heavy blow. Then said the 'You wanted to avenge the sting of a tiny iusact with death. What will you do t<s yourself, who have added insult to injury ?" Frequently, "The sinews of war" is a conversation phrase. Thia is said to hav« originated with Demosthenes, over two thousand years ago, when he said, "The sinews of war are cut." Later, Bion, the Greek, said, "Riches are the ainewsof business." After him Plu tarch said that Cleomenes first called money the sinswt of the State, with special reference to t ear. After him, various eminent peraons, including Cic ero, declared money to be the sinews of war. "Beware of a man of one book," a sentence originating with St. Thomas Aquinas, it not used so much as it used to be. But he who knew one book, or one subject, extremely well, is apt, if ever he gets the chance, to talk about that and nothing else. Coleridge, who talked a great deal, upon a variety of subjects, related bow be traveled in a stage coach with a sen sible-looking person, to whom be threw out many invitations to converse, but ever in vain. At last, in despair, he said, "I have tried you on a score of subjects, none of which seem to interest you. Can you speak on anything?" The man answered, "I am a tanner. Take me upon sole leather, and see whether I can't talk." The aphorism, "Defend me t'roin my friends; 1 can defend myself from my enemies;" is said to have been used by Marechal Villars, a French leader, on takiug leave of Louis XIV. In a sati rical poem, "The New Morality," by Ueorge Canning, an English wit and statesman, we fiud : "Uut of all plagues, goed heaven, thy wrath can send. Save, save—oh, save me from the candid friend 1" "God tempera the wind to the shorn lamb," as used by Lawrence Hterue, iu the story of Maria in his "Sentimental Journey," baa repeatedly been used as a quotation from tbe Bible, in which it is not to be found. Neither did it ori- S'nate with Sterne, who, like Lord yron, was a most unscrupulous picker up of other writers' gems. It was writ ten by Henri Estienue, u French author, in 1594, and. half a century later, by George Uerbeit* who wrote Latin and English poems with great and equal facility. "God always supports the heaviest battalions," sounds like a modern aphorism, but is foreign and ancient. It was used by Terence two thousand years ago, aad by Tacitus, the Koman historian, who lived in the first century. Roger Kabutin, Count de Bussy, a French wit and satirist, in the seven teenth century, has it in bis letters. Voltaire, a hundred years' later, also expressed that idea, having fouud it in one of Madame de Sevigne's letters to her daughter. Wrong quotations are oomniou. "The tongue is an unruly member," generally attributed to the Epistle of St James, is nut to be found therein; and the real words are, "The tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil." "Truth is stranger than fiction," is a usual misquotation from Byron. Tbe original, in "Don Juan," Canto xiv, stansa 101, rung thus ; " Tta 411. M Was; fee traUi it always ttrutlrUn ftcttoa." Adventurous Zouave. While cruising aleng the Barbary coast in 1&42-3.1 was fortunate in the cotapanicnabip of Ed. Y. MoCauley, now a captain in the United States Navy, whose father was, at tbe time, American Consul at Tripoli. At Algiers, MeCauley pointed out to me—or, we went soase little distance to see him—an old Prench Zouave, of whom he had a curious story to tell. One day, not long before the time of which I speak, word was brought to tbe Frepph commandant that some man of the garrison was surreptitiously selling powder to tbe Arabs. It had beet) known that tbe outside barbarians were destitute of powder, and that tbe chief. Ben llabased, had offered five fianos in silver for each and every cart ridge that should l>e brought to him. Guardes were detailed to watch, and, at length, tbe eld Zouave, Sebastiene Foe sard, was detected in the very act. He was seen to pass over into the hands of a tall, swarthy-faced Arab a bundle of cartridges, and to receive in return as many silver five-franc pitcea. When arrested, be had quite a number of tbe contraband cartridges in bis pockets, probably waiting for another customer. SEATTLE, WASHINGTON TERRITORY, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1877. Never were men more surprised thai were th>se officer* bet'ore whom Sebos tine Koasard »u brought. He had beei known it one prone to forage exten strely, but that ho could <io a deed o treason bad never entered into the min< of one who knew him. He acknowl edged that he had done just what hi captor* bad reported that they aaw hie do. He disputed nothing. "And," he went on, "lam willing t «ve you all the trouble, aad my regi tuent all the sharno of a public trial Gi*e me a pistol and let me load i with one of my own treasonable cart ridge*. and I will blow out my owi brain inatauter." Never a braver man had stormed i fortress or a stoekade than Fosaard, am the Duke D'Aumale resolved to gran ' bis request. A pistol was furnished bin and he carefully loaded it; and than with a smile upon hi* weather-beaten corrugated face, he pat the muzzle t< bis temple and pulled th« trigger. The sparks flew out from the flint but no report followed. He tried i ' second time with the same result. "What is tue matter*" demandei D'Aumale. "Is your powder wet?" "I'm afraid there is no powder here General." "Ha! No powder"'" " Juhtr Ciel. I hope you did not be lieve that Bebastiene F»ssard had sole powder to the enemy. No—no. I ban their silver, true and bright, for whicl I gave them cartridges filled with coal dust." And so it proved to be. Fossard wa< returned to duty, and within four-and twenty hours from that time the life o a French colonel of cavalry waa savec •by those very cartridge*. He had beer waylaid by three Arabs, whose pistoli proved to be charged with nothing but coal-dust. He brought the three insid< the French lines at the mazzle of hii own pistol, and in their pockets wen i found n number of the old Zouave's contraband cartridges. Fossard spent ! the evening of that day with the Col ! oncl. MISCELLANEOUS. A. MACKINTOSH, Notary Public and Conteyaneer, Heal Estate and Tax Agent.
