JOHif TODD. ; -' ' - J - At the foot of one of those gigantic moun tains in Asia, which lift up their heads so far above the clouds, that the eye of - man never shw their summits,-- stood Jt beautiful cottage, facing the east The mountain stream leaped and murmured on the north ; tlie verdaritplain where the bright-eyed gazelle sported, lay spread out in front; the garden and the olive yard filled with every flower and every fruit which an oriental sun can pencil and ripen, lay on the south: while back on the west, rose the everlasting mountain. Here wealth and shades arid fruits,'such as .were found nowhere ".else. The sun shone upon no spot more luxurient the moonbeams struggled to enter no place more delightful; the soft wings of the breeze of evening fanned no' such abode in' all the east. The howl of the wolf was never heard here ; the sly fos never came here to destroy ; and the serpent's hiss was never heard here.. This cottage was the home of" Hafed, the aged and prosperous. He reared this cottage; he adorned this spot; and here' for more than four-score years he lived and studied. During all this time, the sun had never forgotten to visit him daily ;. the harvest had never failed, the pestilence had never destroyed, and the mountain strems had never dried up. The wife of his youth still lived to cheer and bless mm; and his son and daughter were such as uere not to be found in all that province. No youth cnuld rein the horse, hurl the javelin, chase the lion, or delight the social circle, like his son. No daughter of kings could be found so beautiful and perfect and joyous, and a form so symmetrical as hers. ; .. ... But who car. ensure earthly happiness? In one short week, Hafred was stripped af all his His wife wept to see a new white peacock, which it was said a neighbor, who lived a mile off in that ravine, had just brought home. She took cold, and a quick fever - followed; and on her return Hafed saw that she must die. Before two days were gone the old trian was standing at her open grave. He gazed long, and said impatiently 'Cover her cover the only woman I ever loved!' " The son and the daughter both returned, from the buriel of their mother, fatigued and sick. ' The nurse gave them ns she thought, a simple medicine. In a few hours it was found to be poison. Hafed saw that they must die ; for the laws of nature are fixed, and poison kills. ' He buried them in one wide deep grave, and it seemed as if in that grave he buried bis reason and his religion. He tore his gray hair, he cursed the light of. day, and wished the moon turned into blood ; and above all, lie blasphemed his God, declaring that the laws which behind established were all wrong useless, and worse than none. He wished the world were governed by chance, but as this was a hopeles iish, he wished that at his death he mirht go to a world where there was no God, to fix unalterable laws. - He arraign ed the wisdom of God in his government over this world, declaring that his plans were weak, and worse than none, and that it would be far better to have no God in the universe! In the center of Uafed's garden stood a large and beautiful palm tree. Under it was Hafed sitting the second evening after closing the grave over his children. The seat on which he sat had been reared by his son.- On the leaf of the tree which lay before him, were some exquisite verses written by the pencil of his daughter. . Before him lay the beautiful country covered with green, sprink led here and there as tar as the eye could see, with the habitations of men, and upon this great landscape the shadows of the mighty mountains were now sitting. In the east the moon was just pushing up her modest face, and the gold of day was softening into the sil ver of night. : While looking on all this, grief began to swell in his bosom; his tongue mur mured ; his heart was full of hard thoughts of God, which nearly amounted to blasphemy. As the night deepened, Hafed, as he then thought, fell asleep with a heavy heart. When he supposed he awoke, it was a new spot. The mountain, the landscape, the home were all gone. - All was -new. ., . , As he stood wondering where he was, he saw a creature, approaching "him, which, at first, he took for a babboon;but on its corning nearer he discovered thaU it was a creature some what resembling a man malformed, ill shaped and monstrous.' He came up and walked around Hafed as ha would a superior being, exclaiming, 'beau tiful creature.' - -', . 'Shame, "shame on thee!' said Hafed; 'dost thou treat a stranger thus with insults? Leave off your jests, and tell me where I am, and bow 1 came here ?' :" 'I da not know how you came here, but here you are in our world that we call chance world; because everything happens here by chance.' ' . - -'Ah! is it so? This must be delightful! This is just the world for me. Oh ! had I al ways lived here, my beautiful children would not have died under a foolish and inexorable law ! Come, show me this world for I long to see it. But have you really no God, nor any one to make laws and govern you just as he sees fit' .-- I don't know what yovt mean by God; we have nothing of that kind here nothing but chance; but go with me and you will under stand all about it' As they proceeded, Hafed begnn to notice that everything looked queer and odd. Somo of the grass was green, some red, some new, and tome dying; some grew with tbe top V downward; and the sight was very painful. ' He stopped to examine an orchard ; here chance had been at work. On it fine looking apple tree, he saw no fruit but large coarse cu cumbers. "' A'small peach tree was breaking down under its load of gourds. 7 Some of the trees were growing with ttieir tops - down wards, and the roots branching out in the air. Here and there were great holes dug.by which somebody had tried to get down twenty or thirty feet in order to get the fruit. The guide told Hafsd that there was no certainty about these trees I. and you never could - tell what frnit a tree would happen to berrr. . The .tree which bears cucumbers, may the next year bear potatoes, and ' perhaps you would have to dig twenty feet for every potatoe you ob tained; ' ''-."' ': .:'-'(' ;,x- fV- They soon met another of the 'chance men' His legs were very unequal in Jenglh, one no knee," and "' the other no ancle. His ears were-set nponv his shoulders, and around hi&H heau was a thick black bandage, fia came grooping his way, and Hafed at - once asked how long since he had lost his sight? Ihave not lost it,' he said; 'but when I was born, my eye balls happened to be turned in instead of out, and the buck parts being ' out ward, are, " very painful in the light,, and so I put on a covering.' , ..'Well, but caust thou see anything f Me thinks thou mayest see strange things within.' 'True, but the difficulty is to get any light in them. . I have contrived in various ways to do so; have had it poured into my ears and nose; but all will not do. Yet I am as well off as others. My brother has one good eye in the top of his head ; but he only looks di rectly vp with it to the clouds;. and the sun al most puts it out He shuts it most of the time during the day ; but it happens to be one that will not stay shut, and so when he sleeps the flies trouble him badly: I have a sister who. has-nineteen eyes in her head; they area vexation. She sees eighteen things too many. Even now si 16 can't realize that she has got nineteen fathers and as many mothers. She goes to bed, ' and falls on the floor nineteen times at least before she gets in. She goes to diiuk, and she sees nineteen cups, and knows not which is the real cup. But it so happen ed, and she is as well off as most in this 'chance world." ' But after all, it is a glorious world, I assure you.' ' 'Wonderful, cried Hafed. - As they proceeded a little further,, . they met a young lady." . , - 'That young lady,' said the. guide, is the greatest beauty in all these parts. All our young men are bewitched by her;' and there have been not less than twenty duels on her account already. You will be amused at see ing a being so perfect. As they met, Hafed started more fully than is usually considered polite among the Orien tals. The beauty - hud a face not altogether unlike a human face, excepting that the mouth was under the chin, the eyes looking separate ways, and the color of the hair was a mixture of red, light blue,' white' and yellow. One foot had the heel forward, and one arm was altogether wanting. : . - -- -- - . Wonderful v wonderful, truly,' criedHafed. 'Twenty duels! but I hope they were not all killed, were they?' Here the beauty began to ogle, and mince in her steps most enchantingly. : . 'Killed!' said the guide; 'you seem to know nothing about us.. Thev all met and fought together; but as everything goes here by chance', it is not often that we can get our pow der to burn. In this case only one got his gun off at all, and that did not happen to go on till night; when he was just going to bed, when it wounded his hand, which has been bleeding ever siuce. 'Ever since! How long ago was this! She did not look as if it could be none to day.' , 'O, it was two years nco.' ,- - ." 'Two years ago! and why don't you seek the leech, and have the poor boy saved from bleeding to death even though he was a fool tor more reasons than one V ' - 'Ab! you don't understand it. Everything goes by. chance here ; and there is only a chance that a man who is wounded will ever be healed.' . 'I don't understand it,' said Hafed. " They slopped to look at some 'chance cat tle' in a yard. Some had but three legs: some. Had the bead on the., wrong partot the body; some were covered with wool, under which they were sweltering in a climate always trop ical. Some - were half-horse, half-ox. ' One cow had a dwarf of a cammel following her, and elaiming ber as his mother. Young ele phants were there with flocks'of sheep; horses with claws like a lion, and geese clamping round the yard with hoofs like horses. It was all the work of chance. ' 'This,' said the guide, 'is a choice collection of cattle ; you never saw the like before." 'That is true truth itself,' cried Hafed.,- : .'Ah ! but the owner has been at slmost in finite pains and expense to collect them. I don't believe there is another such collection any where in all this chance world." ( 'I hope not,' said Hafed. Just as they were leaving the premises, the Owner came out to jdmire and show and talk over his treasures. He wanted to gaze at Hafed but his head happened to be nwar the ground between his feet, so that he had to mount upon a wall before he could get a fair clue to the stranger. ' 'Don't think I am a happy man,' said he to Hafed, 'in having so many and such perfect animals. Alas! even in this happy and per fect world, there are always draw backs. That fine looking cow yonder happens to give but warm, water for milk and her calf, poor thing, died the first week. Some of them hav good looking eyes, but from some defect are stone blind. Some of thorn cannot live in the light, and but few of them can hear. - No two eat of the same food.and it is a great la bor to take care of them. I sometimes feel as if I had almost as lief be a poor man.' -s. 'I think I should rather,' said Hafed. While they were talking in an instant they were in midnight- darkness. ' The sun was gone and Hafed could not for some time see his guide. : , ; :. ... .- 'What has happened?' said he. 'Oh, nothing uncommon,' said the guide. The sun happened to go down now. There is no regular time for him to shine but he goes and comes just as it happens, and leaves us as suddenly as you see.' , 'As I don't see,' said Hafed ; 'but I hope he will come back at the appointed time at any rate.' . - . . . . - - 'That, sir, will be just as it happens. Some times he is gone for months, and sometimes for weeks, and sometimes only far a few min utes. Just as il happens. We may not see him again for months, but perhaps he will come soon." " - ---' : ..,'"-..' ' 'But how do you talk about months and days when you have no such things ?' - 'I.will soon tell you about that We meas ure time by the yard ., : By "the yard ? ; V. ,' " : '' ; 'Yes we , call thai time which the moat perfect men among us take in walking a yard, to be'the sixtieth part of an hour. Those hours we recoo into days, and these days into years To be sure, we , are not very , exact, becaust some men walk so much faster than others but this in just as their legs happen to be loo j or short.' ' " ; " " - -u A the ' guide was proceeding, ; to the ex pressible joy of all, the sun at once broke our. The light was so-sudden 1 that Hafed nt first thought he must be struck with lightning, and actually put his hands to bis eyes to se if they were safe. ' He then- clapped his hands over his eyes till he could gradually bear the light There was a splendor about the sun which he had never seen before, and it was intolerably hot - The air seemed like a furnace.' . . - -; ,'Ah !' said the owner of the cattle,.'we must now scorch for it! My poor wool-ox must die at once! Bad luck, bad luek to us! The sun has just come back much nearer than he was before. liut we hope he will happen to go away again soon, and then happen- to come further off next time.' . . . -7 -v " The sun was now pouring down his 'beat sointensely.that they were glad- to go into the house for shelter-r-a miserable looking, place indeed. Hafed could not but compare it with his own beautiful cottage. Some timbers were rotten for the tree was not,. as it hap pened, the same thing in all parts. .-.Some, of the boards happened, to these were loose and coming oil X hey; had to do the cooking out, under the burning sun-for-when the smoke once got into the ,house,there was no getting it out, unless it happened to go, , winch was not very often.;..-,. ' .,;:-;-':;- ' -.-i .Xhey invited Haled to eat On sittms: down at the table, he noticed that each one had a different kind of food, and that no, two could eat out of the same dish.,"; He wasold that it so happened, tliai the food which one could eat was poison to another, and what was agreeable to one was nauseating to-another. Selecting the food which looked most inviting, Hafed attempted to' eat. What was his sur prise, when he found that his hands did not happen to be under control of his will, and instead of carrying the food to his mouth these active servants put: it into his leti ear. On examing, he found that it was so with all the rest, and by imitating the eompany, and twisting his head round over his right shoul der, and placing his mouth where his ear was. he managed to eat : In-amazement he asked how this happened. ' - - - - - ' - i "Ah!" said they, laughing at his -ignorance of (he word, "we have no fixed laws here. All is chance. Sometimes we have one or more limbs " for a long time which are not tin der the control of our will. " It is just as it happens.- So when we drink, we had it al ways true, that - .j "Some shed it on their shoulder ;'-.. -S i 1 So'iie shed it on their thigh; i And he that doeo not hit his mouth-,-- I sure to hit his eye." . . . . , . .. ."I suppose that to , be coffee, said Hafed, "and I will thank you tor a cup-" .. It was handed him.

Here he was.aud here he must live. He threw himself on a bed and recalled the past the beautiful world in which he - had once lived his ingratitude his murmuring, and his blasphemy against the wisdom and good ness of God.,:. He wept like- infancy. .He would have prayed and even began a prayer; but then ha recollected that there was no God here nothing to direct , events nothing but chance. He shed many and bitter tears of re pentance. At last ho went himsell asleep, When Hafed again awoke, he was sitting under his palm tree, in his own beautiful gar den. It was morning. At the appointed moment the glorious sun rose up to the East the fields here all right end upwards and cov ered -with blossoms; the beautiful deer -were bounding in their gladnessover the lawn, .and the songsters which, in plumage and sweet nuss might have vied with those that sung in Eden, were muttering their songs. - Hafed arose, recalling that ugly dream and then wept for joj'. Was he again in a. world where chance does not reign ! - He looked up and then turned to the Uod 01 Heaven and earth, the God of laws and of order. He gave Qlorv . to him, . and confessed that hi ways, to us unsearchable, are full of wisdom. He was a hew man. Tears indeed fell at the grave of his family: but now he lived to do good to men and maUe outers nappy, tie called a young and worthy couple, distant re latives of his, to fill his bouse. . His home again smiled, and pe.tce and . contentment came back, and were his abiding guests. Hafed would never venture to affirm whether this was a dream or a reality. On the n hole he was inclined to think it real, and that there is somewhere a chance world but he always shook his head, and declared that so fur from wishing to live there, nothing gave him great- er -cause 01 grautuao, as ne sneii, in uauy prayer, than the tact that he lived in a world where tiod ruled ruled by laws fixed, wise and meicilul.
