A corrpinilanl of Ihe) Boston Trasellrir
8l anjriteresilng1 rrount of lliit manner
in which the prrjuJieei of lhi Turks ar
compellinl lo yield in the presence ot
. hir Christian allies. Al a yrauiil review, In
1h neighborhood of Constantinople, ha wit
nessed tha following, among othar strange
things: ' ; ,
"First t saw tha Sullan so mnoh exhilarated
by tha occasion, as actually to put his horse
. upon tha gallop, a thing qnite incompatible
with the dignity of tha Sultan ! Second, the
' lady of Marshal St. Arnmiil drove In her car
riaga directly in front of tha Sultan, and was
. there introduced to him, he coming toward on
Ilia horsa lo speak with her ; a stranger pro
coedinjr, and eren more reoliirijr to the feel
ings of rigid Mnsselmen, than it was to see
Lord Stralfoid help their Imperial Master into
his boat on the day of the English review )
And last of all, and to cap the climax, I saw
Turkish young lady walking, arm in arm,
with Turkish gentleman ! a eight, so fur as
I know, entirely new for Turkey. He may
hare been her husband, fur auyht t know,
but, acoording lo Turkish notions, that would
not mend tho matter in the least. Strictly, a
husband cannot with any propriety allow his
-wife eren to walk by his sido in the street
Rarely are they seen lo go nut together at all,
and when they dn, the wile must keep a re
spectful distance behind !
Up to this day, green is a sacred color with
the Turks, and nl Christian subject is allow
eJ, on any account lo wear it. It is a (lis
linclivemark of a Mussulman, and especially,
and above all things else, in the tuiban
Ureen turbined Turks, even, are rare, and it
is understood that the men who aspire to such
distinction is a peculiarly holy man in
deed, a lineal descendant of the Prophet.
Just imagine, then, what must be the feelmgs
of the good old Mussulman, lo soo regiments
of Fionch troops all wearing the green lur-l
ban ! These soUliers have gone through all
Ilia streets of tho capital, sometimes singly,
sometimes in companies of five and ten, ami
have attracted univesal attention and remnik.
At first tho common Turks supposed them to
be Mussulmen Frenchmen. Several of them
were passing St- Sophia one day, and some
Turks invited Ihem to go in and say their
prayers.. The Frenchman, not knowing the
language, did not at first comprehend the
nature of the invitation ; but a person was
soon found lo aot as interpreter. When they
learned that they wore expected to go
through tha Mussulmen prayers, 'Why,' said
they, 'we are Catholic Christians, not Mussul
mans ' 'How then,' said the other, 'do you
wear these turbans V 'O,' replied they, 'we
wear whatever color we like.'

Tkc Mo.mrstead Graduation Land Bill
failed in :he recent Congress, but it turns out
that a graduation bill of much more impor
tance, offered by Mr. Cubb, passed both
houses, and became a law. The Union gives
tha following synopsis of its provisions:
"All lands which have been in market for
ten years or upwards shall be subject to en
try at one dol lor per acre ; fifteen yea-rs and'
upwasds, at seventy-five cents; twenty years
and upwards, al fifty cents ; .and twenty-five
years and upwards, at twenty-five cents; and
thirty years and upwards, at twelve and a
half cents per acre. Upon every reduction
the occupant and settlor to have the right of
pre-emption at such graduation prices until
within thirty days preceding the next gradu
ation, but not lo interfere with any right
which has heretofore occrued to actual set
tiers. Any person applying to enter any ot
the aforesaid lands is required lo Tnake affi
davit that be or she enter the came for his
or her own use, and for the purpose of actual
aettlemenl and cultivation, or for Ihe nse of
an adjoining faun owned or occupied by him
or her self, nd that, together with such en
try, ha or she has not acquired from the Uni
ted States, under Ihe provisions of this uct,
mote than three hundred and twenty acres "
Thi roLLOwmo Act, ''Relative to tha Re
vival of Judgments before Justices of Ihe
Peace," was passed by the tale Legislature,

cidedly valuable ss a inunucl for practicing
attorneys in Pennsylvania, and tlo not heiutc
to recommend it. If it were ecnerally used it
would increase the accuracy of tho profession in
matters which are often very carelessly done.
