Wherever he had greeted .thV huskvjydr.y, all
seemed to bo more luxuriant thhn in.the whole
rauge'of the land beside. But, .one evening.';
the Bun plunged into a belt of clouds which j
mounted i^pidry'frdtu the Mediterranean.,'The
wind_rqee in wild gusts?flight, sudden, chill
and- -Starless, povcrcd the mountain forests as
with a pall, under which the' work of death

' torrents, the thunderetorms sot their mosques j
in a blare, the/ lightuing rifled and scat tared
tho ancient trees'which'for centuries h d.lSoeri
tho shelter of their cottages* all was' ruin.
Whjn d.**y rosex sjow, sad', and'.Imperfect, tine

lotion. * Jtf ut. if qii F*TO ^tfefe?. the ohiof
havoc fell upon the unlucky exfCrimenff-itets
jpf fjhc'Bey.;- A .new process by which the fend
was to- bp pr. ^.f-.rccf for a tenfold harvest in
the- ensuing year, had stripped the soil of its'
usual 'autumnal covering of shrubs, weeds and
copse.. The wind and raiti had taken full Ven
geance on tho attempt to disturb the old plan.
Thp soil was torn /uj) to Jho vory. bowels, and
tho B?y was to find his-palace surroundod by j
the multitude in a stato of insurrection,?
charging him with their calamities, denoun
cing his rashness as the cause ? of tho suf-|
ferings which had fallen on the soif from
angry heaven; and demanding bread.. The
Bey was overwhelmed. -The cry of a multi
tude wan not to be resisted. Yet how was he
to remedy:, the' suferiii^ of th?usaod? ?' He
gave them oilthat his palace contained. It fed
m .fbw fora'tfa)*'. he sold iris jewels I all was']
but a drop in the sand. The popular ory was
raised louder still, when it was discovered that
.the Boy's liberality was increased in propor
tion to tho clamor. He was embarrassed and
turned to the young Scribe in his anxiety.
"Stop !" was tlie' brief answer; but the spirit
of Mustap'ha was not made to stop in anything.
Liberal, eager and lofty, .ho deter mined to
show himself-superior to this emergency. ? He
now' proceeded to strip himself of all that
could bo turned into value. Tho populace
lived a week in hiiy luxury, and liked this style
?of life so well, that they determined to con
tinue it as long-as (hoy wcro ablu. . Tiiey at
length used threats* those-revolted the high
mind of the Boy j ho < drove thorn from the
palaco gates. That night ho .was roused by .a
knopkiitg at his chamber door. As ho'opened'
his oyea, a. broad glare of light burst across
them. He looked out from the casement; a
wiug of his palace was in flames-, and -some
thousands of ? tho . peasantry wcro flinging
lorohea and combustibles-on the remaining
wing ; while a host, of women with children id
their arms, wcro exclaiming against "tho ty
rant who- had starved, them.!' JVlustnpha
grasped hi? scymotor, and would havo rushed
out among thq ingrates. He Was chooked by
a gcntlo but firm hand. It was-.tho young
Scribe's. .
<? Your'-time..is not yet come to bo torn to

aAnd leave- those heartless wretches itnppn
?ishod?u.- was tho quick exclamation of the
Bey, ' ' ? . ;.^t ?
\ ^'Better lenVo ariythlrtg*, than'leave your own

Where it curves like a ring of gold, with Samoa,

House. " "Before you juniko.your trial of.soli

like the march to .Mecca/' Mustapha.was in
"dijflcrcnt'to everything ;.ho would have marched
to China, or the moan alike, if he could, "To
Mecca then,"- was the answer. And the}' both
wen^ on-board. - , ? :
The passengers wore like the living cargoes,
whioh uro yearly thrown ou Arabia, composed
of. the sproduce of every nation, of the Mos-,
?lern, Turks, Tartars, Persians, Indians," be
lievers in all the shades of creeds which make
tii? .map.of Muhonietanispi as motley as the
paw'hetj of a Jewish garboVdine.-- The season
was loVel-cj*sea was- smooth, the wind was
fair, aud with a llowing sheet the vessel glided
from.the bay', ?n<i hV?ed along the chores of
that richest landscape of the world. Mustapha
was doiighteu with ihc.sccric. All to him was
now, and novelty wa,' the food of his -eager
spirit; but tho sense of boauty, of grandeur, and
of the overwhelming power of nature, h?uria
ted in the perpetual magnificence of tho sky, the
mountains and tho ocean that now expanded
on him for the first time. He hud never be
fore seon the sea; the Propoiitis was but a lake
and the Bosphorus but a rijcr; he now. saw
-the majesty of the wateM-gfpreading without a
-limit, sending forth the sun at dawn, as from
some ..pearly * palace ' in the .depths of ocean,
and at eve, opening thoir bosom for ins de
scent among" pavilions of purplo and rose, and'
closing over him with billows of molten gold.
As'the vessel swept eastward from the G?lf
of Macri, the mountain ranges, that make the
rampart of the land from the violcnco of the
winter storms, scorned to fly away behind him,
light and rich colored as the clouds, and swift
as the olouds themselves. All was wild, fan
tastic and vivid: The -nutrhl? - range of the.
Gulf of Macri was.followed by the promonto
rios that'girdle the great Gulf of Satalia-.
Jlustapha, without tho consciousness of a poet
felt the.creativo thoughts of poetry and com
pared the summits of tho mountains, in;.they
sparkled with incessant fadiance, to crowns'of
living jewels dropped on them from the skies;
or to tho. thrones of spirits that stoop from the
?tars to keep watch ovor the world. The glo
rious scene vanished,?only to bo followed by a
hew. multitude of all the shapes of beauty, rising
from the <] ist ant waters like floating pearls, aud
constantly spreading and ascending, until they
stood abovo him iri gigantic heights and 'forms;
sohic frpwiiiilg in savago grandeur, some
clothed .with sunshine jike sheets of gold, some
winding . away bathed in twilight liko the
figures of a long procession veiled in vestures
of etornal purplo. During tho wholo voyage
down tho coast between Rhodes and. Scandc
roon, Mustapha and tho Soribo wero constantly
on deck togcthor, enjoying the luxuries of this
grcqt banquet of nature, but onoh according to
his own fcclingB. Mustapha, with loud aud,

.ijisultfby the poniard,- for the.question*-which
qf two men who .had,died ? thousabd years,
ago" was the. true ?'descendant of, the, prophet.
?May the prophet spurn them both out bf jparrt
diso*,*' was his laughing exclamation'; for-'the
Shiite and the Soniiitewohld quarrel about the
number, of pearls in its pavement." . Even
while he was speaking, a furious battle arose
hi the fore .part of the ship. He was rushing,
towards it; but the Scribe pulled his robe, and
jje turned. VThoy," said . the youth, "arc two
.doctors pf the mosque fighting;" Mustapha
stopped nt once. He nnd no .possible desire to
interfere botweon-such . slippery personages as;
doctors of the mosque, and' die returned his
half-drawn scymctar iuto its.sheath ? But he
had not far to follow the combatants, for one of
them, a huge Arab of Medina, came running
to tho stern, draggiug the other along by the'
ncokV;fo throw him* overboard. Mustapha's
Kumftbity instinctively made him grasp'the de
feated party, as lie was on the point of hoing
,?**fc-toHhe?^"?1' T-WMie - with ono hand ho
held up the unlucky combatant,'and' with the
other, kept his ^'vanquisher at* bay, he asked,
what could have been the cause of this mortal
hatred '? "Ask the villian whom- you have
barely kept from*my murder," exclaimed the.
defeated Mol lab. '-Does the.miscreant .dare to
repeat his impious words," roared the man of
Medina; "I call every true. Moslem to witness
as I call heaven and earth to'avenge the crime
that he dared, to doubt that the'sacred camel
which carried the prophet in the Hegira was
? tehiteP'-' lie could utter no more; he stood
choking with fury. "Dared to doubt it?" ex
claimed his rescued antagonist; "f never doubt,
cd for an instant on the subject. I said, and
say, that the sacred camel was black. And' if
that misbelieving slave's dagger were at my
thront, I should say it still ;" the saying was
unlucky, for iu the effort to second his demon
stratio? by a blow of n knife hid in his sleeve,
his foot slipped and ho fell under tho very
heels P1* his enemy. The Arab instantly
rushed upon him, Cn<1 before an arm could be
raised for his protection, hau hung him over
the ship's sidb. Even Mustapha now shrank
from advancing, for the Arab swore by the
holy stone of Mecca, that at his first step he
should sec the heretic tossed into the Boa.
''put to show that I uriuOfstutiu justice,.' he
exclaimed; "I shall give the wretch one chance
more : A eh met Ben Saddai, son of an evil
mother, do you acknowledge that the camel
.was " white ?" "Black," was the outcry
in answer; "ay, black as midnight!" .Then,
down to Satauai 1" shouted the Arab, at
tempting to fling him into the waves ; but the
Mollah would not bo shaken off; he clung to
him with the nerve of death; and tho struggle
was fierce, until tho Arab uttered a scream of
agony,* and both plunged out of sight together.
On their rising to the surface, the Mollah was
seen dead, strangled by tho grasp of his pow
erful fellow disputant. The Arab was dying ;
his broad ehest displayed a mortal wound,
which the Mollah had contrived to give him, at
tho close of tho struggle, as a final specimen of
his skill iu tho art of controversy. A boat
was ordered to be let down to rooovcr thoir re
mains, \>\it tho sailorship of the Mediterranean
is tardy, and in the mean time the disputants
were taken possession of by more interested
activity. A couple of sharks had continued
eyeing tho' Struggle at the ship's side, in fair
expectation of tho consequences. They now
pounced on both the doctors, swept them
through surges, whose foam they soon turned
red, and left the merits of the black and white
camels to bo sett led by posterity.
"Well," said Mustapha, gravely, as the
wrecks of those unfortunates disappeared;. "I
ffibpc tho rest of our disputants will *1)C taught
by their example ?"
* "When," said the Scribe';, ?jwere.foots ctcf
taught by example?"

Noyer, under nriy( circumstances,. assume ?
responsibility you can avoid consistently with'
your duty to yourself and bthers.
? Base all your, actions upon a principle of
right; preserve your integrity of character,
?and in doing this, never reckon the'cost.
Remember that self interest is more likely
to Wafp your judgment than all other circum
stances combined) theroforc, look well to your
duty, when your interest is concerned.
Never make money at - the oxponsc* of. your
reputation*. ?
Be neither lavish nor niggardly, of the two
avoid the latter. A mean man is' universally
despised, but public favor is a stepping stone
to preferment^?therefore' generous feelings
should be cultivated.
Say but little?think much?and do more.
Let your expenses be such as to leave a
balance in your pocket. Beady money is a
friend in need.
Keep clear of the law; for even if you gain
your case, you are generally loser of money. ,
'. Avoid borrowing and lending. ....
Wine dunking and cigar ? smoking nro bad
habits. They impair the mind and pocket,,
and lead to a waste of time.
Never relate, your misfortunes, and never
grieve over what you cannot prevent. '
