INTERESTING STOP,Y

voluK.e publijked at London^ in i }%J.
Mahomet Effendi, dey of Algiers,
| about the middle of the prefent century,
I was reckoned the moll: able and like wife
the moft equitable of tliofe princes who
I have for many years governed the At
; gerines. His promotion to fovercingn
power was involuntary; for he, no doubt,
dreaded the fate of his predecefiors, of
whom noRfs than 2^ perifhed by violent
deaths. He was compelled, rteverthe
lel's, by the janifarics, to accept of a
diguiry, which, notwithftanding his
jufiice and fagacity, proved as fatal to
lurr.felfas to former princes; for he alfo,
a Ihorc time after his advancement, fell
I by aifafT,nation. The following infiance
of his juftice, in which, however,' his
procedure was fomewhat fammary, was
! alfo, and cerrainlv with as much rcafon,
accounted an infiance of his fagacity.—
Slaves among the Algerines nr_* permit
ted either bv (hop-keeping or orherwifi,
and on paying their mailers a certain
I
fum, to earn a little money for them
(ielves. This they may employ, and
ivery frequently do employ, in purcha
jlin3 freedom. A ilave named
Aimoullah, kept an oil-fhop; and found
his gains encreafe Jo very fail, ne loon
acumulated feventy 2 rquins, amounting
to about thirty pounds fteriing. Other
j fifty zequins would have procured him
j his freedom. Fearing however, .as he
was reckoned wealthy, that he might be
• robbed, nn i have no redrets, hc^ravc
piii money in trufi to a moor, who lived
'irx his neighbourhood j and in w hole
■ friendfhip, as well as integrity, he had
I the utrnoft cofidence. His profits idem
tUircrwarcis uccame lo confiderablc, that
!he found himfclF in polfcflion of the fifty
| zequins he fo earncftly wifhed for. He
'thus anticipated, with fteret capture, his
! delivery from bondage ano return ro his
j native land. Repairing therefore to hA
jmoorifti friend, he laid to him, “‘ow
i much beholden am !, wothy 11 «... r;>
your goodnefhi in having tak- n , >*_..
jmy little earnings! Now i .
have gained wherewithal t • • . . -
liberty, to make the befl bur. ;
with my mailer, and return no m v ;
and kindred. X will therefore relieve
i you of the charge you fo kindly l . r
j took.” Hadgi beheld him, or pre :
to behold him, with a look of aftonith
mejU'; he affecTed to believe him mad;
and denied hiA having ar.y.knowledge
whatever of the traufia&ion he alluded
to. Almoullah, neverihelefr, infilled

icy, had undauntedly followed hi
and obtaining leave of the dev, kc ct>iJ
his llory with circuirdlsuAd ' rtrmnefs*
and then proftrated hiinfelf on the carpet

oux, or miniftcr of juftice: *c Go, ” fJU\
he, <f to the houfe of Hadgi, fearch it
narrowly, and bring hither all the money
you find in it.” The Chiaoux bowed,
obeyed, and foon after returned. The
dey having then ordered a new earthen
por with clean water poured into if,
and a charcoal fire to, be placed before
him, he put the pot on the fire, and when
the water boiled, he threw in the mo
ney. Soon after, having taken it or.r,
and letting the water ftand till it cooled*
j he found on the furface a thick greaiy
| -um* I his convincing him that the
! money belonged to the oilman, he in
ftandy reflorcd it to him: and at the
fame time gave a fign to the chiaoux,
who, dragging away the felf-condernned
and convicted moor, fixed his head,
without lots of time, on the wall of the
city.
