CLIMBING A AjJM&ASEJ) PULE.
Edward Everett's last paper in the
Ledger, is entitled "In Paris in 1818,"
and contains a description of the cele
bration of the birthday of St. Louis.—
Of thcMatts de Cocagne hn nays:
What most attracted me was theopen
Mats de Cocagne, which I had never
neon before and with which I was
greatly amused. A Mat de Cocagne
is a good sized must, such as might
suit a small top-sail schooner, erected
in the ground, its surface smeared with
soap and grease, and on its top a boxzied,
containing silver forks, watches and
cheap iewclry, destined as a prize to
reward the successful climber.. No
one person can hold out long enough
to attain the object which can only
be accomplished by several clubbing
together. Those whojnndertake it be
gin by wiping off the lubricating sub
stances with wisps of straw, as high
up as they.can: reach, and this done
they are then allowed to throw sand
on the mast to render it less slippery.
Tins preparation enables one person
to climb to a certain heigth wiping
and sanding the mast as far up as he
can spatain himself by clinging with
his legs around the nart already sand
ed? When he is tired out he slips
down to the ground, plants himself
firmly on lys feet, c!5nging tight around
tho mast, while a confederate mounts
upon his shoulders, and from the ele
vation thus gained, wipes and sands
and so fits for climbing another portion
of the mast. He in turn slips down,
at length, fatigued but plants himself
on the shouders of the first, who is
still clinging to the mast if his strength
holds out. A third then mounts upon
the two, thus standing one above the
Other, and so on until the whole mast,
dclubricated and sanded, is brought
into a condition in which a fresh and
strong associate can climb to the top,
and iako possession of the prize for
himsolfand colleagues. No ladders
or hooks of any kind are allowed, and
tho climbers are searched to prevent
their having any steel points or other
contrivances under their garments.—
The only artificial aid permitted is the
Wisp of straw and the sand, 01 which
they are allowed to cany up as much
»3 two ducp broad pockets, made for
the purpose, will hold. The effort of
course, is to attain that object by a
party consisting of as few confederates
as possible. It usually takes, 1 was
told, the greater part of the day toto
climb to tho summit and get posses
sion of the valuables there deposited.
The toilsome efforts to ascend—the
persons at tho bottom often giving
way of those stand upon them, two or
three deep coming down with a run—
the appearance of a very meagre or
unusually rotund climber—with other
incidents of such an undertaking fur
nish the day's amusement to the gam
in» of Paris and byestanders general
ly, and lend to the exchangs of a deal
of coarse pleasantry, interspersed with
an occasional scuflie, between the
friends of climbers and those who crit
icise their operations too pointedly.—
These last demonstrations, however,
are kept within bounds by the police.
Upon the whole if a man wishes to
study the humors of the bos peuple of
Paris, there are few places where he
can pass a couple of hours to greater
advantage than near a Mat de Co
Wo have nothing exactly like it, in
this country, but it does not badly
symbolize the life of those, who toil
and strain to climb a slippery mast ot
another kind, mounting on the shoul
ders of confederates, flinging dust in
the eyes of the-public, and occasional
ly a little mud in the faces of rivals,
and find when they reach the top, that
the prizes in the basket are of little
value in themselves, and not half num
erous enough to satisfy their associates
who are apt to quarrel over the divis
ion of the spoils.
THE DOOM OF THE WORLD.—The
North British Review, discoursing on
the doom of the world, has the follow
ing remarks: What this change is we
date not even conjecture, but we see in
the heavens themselves some traces of
the destructive elements, and some in
dications of their power, the fragments
of broken planets—the descent of me
teoric stones upon our globe—the
whirling comets wielding their loose
material at the solar surface—the vol
canic .eruption in our own satellite—
the appearance of others, are all fore
shadows of that impending convulsion
to which the world is doomed. Thus
•laced on a planet which is to be
up, and under heavens which
are to pass away thus residing, as it
were, on the cemeteries, and dwelling
upon the raausohims of former worlds,
let us learn the lesson of humility and
wisdom, if we have not already been
tanghl in the school of reyclatJctu*
A TlGlil STORY.
A letter from 1'enang, dated Febru
ary 10.1859, gives the following sin
gular escape from, but ultimate death
by, tl^fj attack of a tiger on a Catholic
missionary on that island, which will
Padre Cuellon was still more so, as the
following details of the attack upon
that worthy priest will clearly prove.
The padre was on his way to church,
and was immersed, in the study of his
sermon, when a tiger, to hjs utter sur
prise, suddenly rushed out of the jun
gle or tall grass but, as the beast had
not measured its distance to a nicety,
the padre, walking very quickly, was
more frightened than hurt. The tiger,
however, brushed so close to the pa
dre that the hitter's trousers were torn,
the snap of the beast being, within a
hair-breadth of his lee The brute,
not content with a single spring, made
another charge upon the .poor padre,
and as he had nothing to defend him
self but his4arge paper umbrella, h*
suddenly opened it out in the brute's
fece, Which had the effect of cowing
it for a time. The tiger, however, ev
idently gamer or more pertinacious in
his attack than is wont with his tribe,
chnrged 4he padre at least a dozen
times, which occupied nearly twenty
minutes. In the meantime, the padre
gradually edged towards a tree in
space of ground and,, as there
was a large white ants' nest between
him and the tiger, round which- the
latter had to make a small tour, this
enabled the padre to climb a tree and
get out of his way. The tiger, on get
ting round!the nest, was atfirstpuz
at not seeing the padre, but in a
few seconds he laid his nose to the
ground, and soon scented the wherea
bouts of his intended victim. The
tiger,' said the padre, quietly sat
down under the tree and gave a wist
ful look towards me, but it fortunately
was of no
avail' Tho natives, at
length hearing the cries of the worthy
padre, hastened to the spot and ren
dered the assistance required. The
tiger fled the instant it heard their
shouts. The poor padre burst into
tears, and sang the Te Deum in token
of gratitude for his delivery. Padre
Cuelon, however, did not rally long
the fright had too serious an effect up
on his system, aud in about ten days
he sank to rise no more.— Wiltnerand

Those who know the dramatic power ani

cannot but hail with delight this now emana

form 1 peculiarly favorable fiojd for the loca
tion and working oat of a ronum e, and the
characters thai roam through that FLOWERY

surrounded, as ever, by many Diffikilties,"
and lending to the romance a vein of sympa

render it irresistible to the lover of fun and
the stndent of human nature.
In addition to this attraction, tho plot will
befoundmore INTRICATELY MYSTERIOUS 1111 01 Centr' a a
and the situations more replete with the tira
of DRAMATIC INTEREST, than i^ any other
story the author has yet written. It is* full of

which interweaves A OOLOXN-THKEAOXD woor

Of the OXNTLX CHARM OF LOVE.
The most exciting and picturesque scenes of

from the pencil of the most celebrated of
whose drawings have made
THE NEW YORK MERCURY
such a favorite with all who appreciate ttue
artistic excellence. The clear ana vivid style
of J. II. ROBINSON'S descriptive writing is
such that the artist can seize upon his crea

PEN AND PENCIL
are brought to bear with as grsat a unanimity
as if both were wielded by one person.
The proprietors of the MERCURY are proud
of the popularity which their journal has at

to themselvesforthe good which they believe
they have done in carrying out their first in
tention—that of making the

To secure this end, they have spared no ex
