LITTLE JIM. BY EDWARD PALMER. The cottage was a thatched 0110 llie outside old and menu, Yet everything within that cot was wond'reus neat and clean; The night wo dark ond stormy, tho wind was howling Willi; A patient mother watched beside the death-bed of her child, A little worn-out creature, his once bright eyes grown dim. It was collier's wife and child: they called him 'I.ittla Jim;" And, oh, to see tho briny tears last hurrying down her i luck, As she ottered up a prayer in thought-bo was ntraiil to spunk, Lest she might Wukm one the loved far belter than lir lilt:! Vor she had all a mother's heart, had that poor col lier' wile. With hands upiilied, see, she knee ls beside the suf ferer's bed, And prays thai lie will spare bar hoy. nnd ink herself Instead! BiN Kt her answer from tho child; soft lll iheU words from him: "Mother, tho angels do so smil". on I b hon tiiltU Jim - I hnve no pale, dear mother, now, but, oh, 1 am so dry; Just moisten poor Jim's Hps again, and, mother, don't ye cry." With gentle, trembling haste she held a tea-cup to hi lips; He smiled, to thank htr, a he took three tiny little sips - 'Tell father, when he comes from work, I sid 'Good night' to him, And mother, now til go to sleep" alas! poor Little Jim! She raw that he was djing-that the Middle loved so door Had uttered the last words that she ndV.it ever hope to ht-nr. The cottage door is opened the collier' step is heard, The father and the mother meet, but neither speak a word He felt that all was over; he knew hU child was dead; He look MM candle in his hand and walked toward? tho l 1 .

THE STOLEN FRUIT. A STORY OF NAPOLEON'S CHILDHOOD. On the 5th of August, 1777, two little gir of seven er eight year old were playing in gBrdeo near Ajaccio, in Coraica. After ru ing up and down jniong the tree and lloi er. one of them stopped the other at the e trance to a dark grolU under ii rock. 'Eliza,' she eaid, -don't g.) any further; frightena me to look iulo that black cuve.' 'Nonaenae! Its only Napoleon' grutl This garden belongs to your uncle; h he given this hole to Napoleon!' 'No, Panroia, my uncle has not given b! this grotto. But as he often comes and speti hour in it by bimaelf, ao wa cull it Nap ton's Grotto.' 'And what can he be doing there!' 'Talking- to himsell.' What about!' 'Oh, I dan'l know; a variety or thing But come, help me gather a large, bunch flowM'a.! i i 'Juit now, when we were on the lower walk, you told me not to pull any, although i there wer. many sweet one.' 'Yes; but that was in my unclethrt canon's garden.' And ire hi. flowers mors aacred than thosn of Napoleon'!' i 'They are indeed, Panoria.' 1 'And why (' 'I'm sure I don't know; but If anyone ' want to prevent u playing, they ay. 'That i gives your uncle, the canon, the headache!' When we ore not to touch something-, 'tis J ulwaya, 'That belongs to ihe canonl If we wnnt to cat some fruit, 'Don't touch that, 'tis for the canon!' I 'I it because he is archdeacon .f Ajaccio I that the people ure so nfraid of him!' i 'Oh, no, l'unoriu; but because he is our tutor. He is not unkind, but he is very.-lrict. If we don't kuow our Jeason, ho alap us amnUlyV , And do you not call that unkind, dcor Eli za!' 'Not exactly. Do you not ever get a whipping) ('anuria1' 'No, indeed, Eliza. It i the Corsican fashion to beat children; but our family i i Greek, and mother say that Greeks must not ! be beaten.' 'Then I'm aure. Panoria, I wish I were a i I Greek; for it is very unpleasant to be slap- ' pedl' 'I dare sny your brother Napoleon does ( not like it cither.' 'He la the only one who t!oes not cry or compniill when he i punished. If you heard ' I what u noise Joseph and Lucien uiiike, you j woiihl fancy that uncle was Maying them I alive!' 'But about Napoleon. What can ho be ' ta king ubotit ulone in the gruttoV I 'Hush! Her. he Is I Let us hide ourselves behind this lilac-tree, and you shall hear.' 'I see Sevetia coming to. call us.' 'Ah! it will take an hour to gather ripe ! fruit for uncle tho cir.on. Wash HI luve time cnouoh. Come!' And the little tjirls, gliding bet'voen the j rock ami the overhanging shrubs, took up . their position in perfect concealment. The boy who udvanced toward the prot'o, dlfle'ed from the generality of children of his age in the z of his betid, the massive ; form of his noble brow, and the fixed exam ; ining escre.aioi: of hi eye. lie walked j slowly lonkingyit the bright, blue sea and unconsciojs that his procedings were watch ed by two puir of black eyes. 'Here I um my own master,' ln sr.id, as he e.itered the grotto. 'No one commands tne here! And seating himself royally on a bench within the entrance, he continued, ! 1 Phis is my birthday. I mn eight years old to-day. I wish I lived atnon the spartan, i then I should be beyond the control of wo men; but now to obey such a number of peo- I pic old Soverin among the rest. Ah, if I were the muster !' 'Well, what ifyott were the master, what would you do!' cried Eliza, thrusting forward oer head. 'First of all I'd teach yod not to come lis 'ening nt doors,' replied Napoleon, discon certed at being overheard. 'But, brother, there is no door that I can aee.' i 'No niu'.tcr, you have been eaves dropping ' all the same.' . 'Eliza! Panoria!' (toe a voice, 'where can these children have gone to!' The young ladies came out of their leafy lurking place in time to m ;et the little Bon. I opar '.- nurse, Severia a tall old woman, ' who carried on her arm a basket filled with I the luscious, tempting pears, oranges, grape and figs. 'A pear, Severia!' cried NapoL-on, darting forward and thrusting his hand into the "jas ket. 'The S lints forbid, child!' exclaimed Se veria. They are fur your uncle tho canon!' 'Ah!' aid Napoleon, drawing back his hand ' a quickly us if a wasp had stung him. Panoriu burst nut u '.augbing. I 'I never saw such people!" she said, as soon as her mirth allowed her to sp-ok, 'My un cle, the cation., shems the bugbear of the family; is Severia afraid of him too!' i 'No more than I um,' replied Napoleon ' boldly. ' ! 'And you ure afruid to take a peir! 'Uocuuse I did not wish to do it.' 'Did not dare to uo it, Napoleon!' 'Did not wish to do it, Panoria.' 'And if you wished lo do it, would you do ill 'Certainly I would.' 'I thi ik you are a Imaslcr, aud in yotti u tele's presence would be just ua great u j rowurd us Eliza or Pauline. 'Come, children, follow me,' said S-'veriu : walking on. 'You think I am n coward!' whispered Eli. I za iu her little friend. 'Come into the houn , and see if 1 don't eat urf much of uncle' fruil j a I please. Mother has gone out to pay o -'visit, and will not be hoint until o-iurroiv . i 'Then I'll help you,' aid Panoriu, and the rirls fixing their wistful eye on the fruit, followed Severia into the house. Napoleon remained sometime longer ir hi grotto; and when supper time approuchei j he went into the house. Peeling very thirs ls ty, he entered the dining room, in which was a la large cupboard, where fresh wuter wa: n I usslly kopt. J. 1 Just u he was going in, he heatd a noise i the cupboard were quickly shut, and hi caught a glimpse ofa white frock disappear jt ing through the open winduw. Instead, how ever, of looking after the fugi live, he wen to get a glass of waiter in the cupboard. -Then, to hi dismay, be w his uncle' babket of fruit half empty! While, forgel t tig his thirst, he looked with astoniehmen at the fruit, considering who couln huve bee "i, the hardy thief, when a voice behind hii roused him from hi reverie. What are you doing there, Napoleon! yo know you are not permitted to help yourse to supper.' This was the uncle canon hinuclf, a shor i 0 stout old nian.rfvith a bald head, whose othc ' wUc ordinary feature weia lighted up wii the eagle glance which afterward distinguish ed his grandnephew. 'I wa not taking anything, uncle,' replied Nspolenn. And then atiddrnly tho Ideo oc curring lo him that he might be ccued of having taken the fruil, the blood rushed hot ly to hi cheeks. HI-- confusion was so evident, that the can on said: 'I hope yon are not telling a falsehood, Napoleon!' I neicrtell falsehoods, 'said the boy, preud- 'y- ,Whnt were you doingl' 'I was thirsty, I came to get some water, air. I 'No harm in that and then, my boy!" 'That is a I, uncle ' 'Have you drank veil" 'No, uncle, not yet.' The archdeacn shook his head. You ran,,. t drink afid did not drink, that does not hang together. Napoleon, take care. If you frankly confess yjur fault, whatever it may be, you shall bo forgiven, but if you tell a lie, and presist in it, I warn you that I shall punish you severely. The entrance of M. Bonaparte, M. Pech, ' and Joseph, his eldest brother, interrupted the conversation, and for some minutes the the elder gentlemen spoke to each other on : political subjects, when a sudden exclama- j tion from Svprto as she opened the cup- I board uttracted the attention of all. 'Santa Madonna! who has taken the fruit!' This is the mystery discovered!' said tho canon, turliing toward Napoleon.' 'So you stole the fruit!' , 'I never touched it,' said he. '('all in the other clildren,' said the areh- ; deacon. Iu a lew minutes five beautiful children, three boys and two girls, formed a group round their father, who looked at them, and asked: 'Which of you has taken tho fruit, that was gathered in your uncle the canon's gar den! 'I did not!' said Pau!iue.' Nor I!' said l.ucien.' 'Nor l!' Nor !!' said all. But Kliza's voice was lower and less as sured than the rest. 'And you, Nupoleon. 'I have said, papa, that I did not do it.' ) 'That's a falsehood,' exclaimed Severn, who, being nn old servant, took great liber ties. 'If you were not a woman!' said Napoleon, shaking his fist. 'Silence! Napoleon,' slid his father, 6tern h. . It must have been you, Napoleon,' said Severia, 'for after puttin' the fruit into the coiphmird I never left the ante-room, and not a soul passed except the nrcltdeucon nod yourself. Il he ha not lakes ' 'I wish truly I hud,' said tho old gentle man, 'then I should not have the grief ul see ing one of my children persist in a lie ' 'Uncle, I um not guilty,' repeated Nupol eon ti r in ly - 'Do not be obstinate, but confess,' said his father. 'Yes,' added the canon, ''tis the only way to escape punishment.' 'But 1 nfver touched the fruit indeed I did n t,' 'Napoleon,' said his uncle, 'I cannot believe you. I shall give you five minutes, am. n at the end of thai time, you do not confess and nsk for pardon, I shall punish you severely.' 'A whip is for dog and horses, not fur children,' said the boy. 'A whip i lor disobedient children,' said his father. 'Then it is unjust to give it to mi for I, am not disobedient!' so saying, Napoleon crossed arms on his breist, and settled him self iii a firm attitude. Meantime his brother and sister Pauline came close to him, and whispered good na tured entreulies to confess. But how cun I when I have not done j w rung!' j 'Si you nro still obstinate!' said his uncle. : And aking- him by the arm, led him into the next room. Presently the sound of sharp I repeated blows was beard, but not a com- j plaint from the young sufferer. Midame 11 ina;iurte was away from home, and in the eeningher husbind wont lo met t in r accompanied uy f o epli, Lucieti and El, z i. M. Fesch and thu canon were ' ubi iit lo depart, and n possing through the , ante-room they iw Napoleon standing pale and grave, but proud and firm-looking us 1 before. 'Well, mycbild,' suiu njl father, 'I hope you will now uskyour uncle's purdoii!' 'I did not touch the fruit, pap i.' 1 , 'Still obstinate! As the rod will not do, I will try snolhcr meithcd. Your mother brothers, Elizi, and I will bo away for three dau;, and during that time you shall bm nothing but bread und water, utiles you usk , your undo' torgiveue.' 'But, pupa, won'lyou let him huve some cheese with his brcud!' whispered littU j Pauline. Ye; but not broccio.' 'Ah! do, pupa, please let him have broc. cio; 'lis the nicest cheese in Corsicu.' ' I 'That is the the reaaon why he ahouli not have il,' said his father, looking at tin boy with anxiom expression as ha hoped It see some sign of repentance on his lace. But none such appearing he proceeded to ward the carriage. Joseph and Luctcn took a kind leave o t their brother, but Eliza seemed unwillin; and afraid to get near him. j The three days passed on heavily onoug! for poor Napoleou, who was in disgrace, an I living on bread and water, and cheese thu wa not broccio. At length the party re . turned, and little Panori, who wus watch ing fur her friend Eliza, came into the hous 1 wilh them. If!. 'Good morning, uncle,' said Madame But .parte to the archdeacon, 'hew are you! An t where are Napoleon and Pauline!' r'. 'Here I am,' .aid Pauline, throwing In m arm round her mother uock.. And Napoleon!" j 'Here he it,' said the canon, j 'Ha. he confe.Mdi' ask.-J Lis father. 'No,' replied the uncle, 'I never tefore wit nessed such blincy.' 'What ha ae don. I' asked h:s mother. 'The canon, in reply, related the tory of the fruit; but lefore he could finish it Pan oria exclaimed: 'Of course, poor fellow, lie would not c jn less what he nrver did ' 'And who did take the fruit' asked the ( cnon. Elixa and I, replied the little girl, with . out hesitation, There was n t.nirersal exclamation. 'My poor child, aaid the orchdeacon em bracing Napoleon. I suspected it was Eliz n.'Jreplied Napol eon, 'but I was not sure. At all eve tits, I would not have told for Panoria' sake, who t nut liyr, J The render may imagine how Napoleoi caressed and rewarded to make bim amends for the vain he had unjustly suffered. At for Eliza, she was severely and justly punisheu: first (or her gluttony; and then for what was much worse her cowardice and deceit for allowing her innocent brother to suffer for her fault.

Many of your readers will doubtless remember that this capital has for srme length of time been the scene it many mysteriously perpetrated rob beries of houses, and the equally mysterious and sudden disappearar.ee of mat y un Eng lish private or A. B. Titia "ki'ling" work reached ils climax about M iy or Jjne Ust.at the lime when so many troops were quorler cd in and about this cily. Some people re garded these ac .8 of bloodshed us nothing more than the result of some midnight brawl, others considered them the works of uostetn fanaticism. But the fact was never satisfac torily accounted for, nur did the many inves tigations of the police ever succee l in obtain ing any clue as to the perpetrators until'erv lately, when the mystery of these deeds was cleared up. And it is a trreat Meniog tint the villians have been at last secured, a tin: cases of murders were again becoming very frequent. On the Jnd of lautiary a gipsy came to the chief c.vass, or superintendent of police, and offered lo disclose the haunt of u gang of niurdoreis, on poyi.ient o( are ward ol 1,0'JO piastre , Though immediate ly secured, he re used to divulge a single fact without tho prom se ol the above sum. . The threat ol Immediate execution was next tried on him, when the gipsy ,in order to save himseif, declared the whole us a got up story. Hereupon he was sent in charge of a cava lo the prima, butneiihe, bans nor handcuffs .are In fashion here, and ihe gipsy managed to make his escape ngain. Next morning he was liiuud dead In the open street, wilh four deep gashes in the breast. It is supo sed that Ihe gang got wind of the gipsy's in tention to betray lliem, and, accordingly.qui I ally dispatched him, ti render Hi in harmless for the future. I '!$Hhe .veiling o(the3J, as some cavas se were m iking their rounds in one of the .Ireeu ol Galati, tb?y observed two in;n carrying a bug between them, apparently with much difficulty. The p.rlicjmin su I peeled them by their manner to luve com mitted some '.belt, und accordingly, to escape observution, got into the shade of a dead wall to ullo.v the others to approach. But this plan failed, for the moo t that miment re-appearing Irom behind a cloud, threw her light full on the dead wall, whereupon the two men let full their b ig. and lou't to their heels. The bag wus found to contain the body of in English soldier, with a bullet thro' hit head. ' Oil Ihe night of the 6th three French sol , diers, wnlking through one of the streets at Peri, -suddenly came up in two Greek-i cui r ying the body of an E.iglish sailor. Sus pected the. commission of a !m 1 deed, the Frenchmen ui.iuns Iheir rides which hung ut their sides, and gave chase to tlu Greek i, who instantly dropped their burden onu ran off. The chime continued, up one lane and down mother for some time, whenAhe pur sued suddenly halted, and gave aloud shrill whistle. Suddenly the previously empty ' lane was crowded with dark figures, whu rushed od the unfortunate Frenchmen who ' had thus nobly endeavored to avenge ihf death ol the English sailor. They fired and made u gallant stand for some lime, un ' lil the overwhelming nu nbers Dure their 1 down, stubbing and clubbing them withoul mercy. H ion after, some cavasses passing I by, the ruffians disappeared again us quickly ' as they had come to the rescue of th-sir fel : low murderer, but not withuul leaving twv 1 : of the Frenchmen dead. The third lived ' just long enough to make his statement t'ri ' the piii'ce, who instantly searched all the at ' leys courts, und houses, but without findiiiii anything suspicions whatever, j Alormer member of the Baden vnlunteoi f : Corps, who has been obtaining a scanty live.

On the merninj of the Oth hi was found dead ouUide ol Peru. A cavuss ' who hnd alo volunteered to olve the my id tery, likewise fell victim, and wa pickei up one morning covered wilh dagger wound ;rl and perfectly dead. ' On the litis however, th mystery w i 'solved It happened a follow: A Pole of' tin name of Ulubatz, and an Italian, Pisana by name. happened to oer.upy the aamn roont. The Italian led a very frcs anil easy l!lc,wa seldom at home, and doe not appear to hnvn I ceu a novice in gambling either. After having been out all nigh'.,Piani entered their common dwelling on the morning D( the 10th filh dejected look, wnich caused hi rriend, the Pole, to denial, d of him what ill-luck he' hud had. Pisadi answered, that he hud lost all hi cash that night ut play, and had even '.u lea e hi gold watch as security for a bor rowed sum, adding "I ha!l g. and redeem my watch directly or the rascally Hoot will change it und I would not lose that watch for the world. Hang these naincles street, and numberless houses!

He had , wondered ub iut lruitles)v fo about an hour, I I when he ertered a small cabaret to refreib himself wilh a glass of rum. He gave the host a piastre, and demanded his change in paras. luoueof these paras he had only the dsy before scratched his name with a mil, and recognized it ns belonging to Pisa ni, w ho must have given away that para. lie therefore tntered into conversation with lb. gin-house keeper, asked bim whether an Italian had been here lately, and whether 1 I ho had played at his house. The man eva- ! ded the question, and his manner appcartd ! altogether so odd that Gljbacz quietly took I his departure in order to hae a look at the ; street door. Sure enough, there wa the i cross hurriedly cratched on the outsido. Turning into :be next street he meet a file Ol poiicemeii attend. tig on some arabas, which ' cont ii ted the bodies of t'.une who had (alii i cu victims in the past night.

Curious Indian Custom. j A fjtlltorill correspondent, writing to a friend in this city, gives the following de ' scription of nn Indian funeral; "I must tell yon how I spen' New Years' ' afternoon. Just after dinner a little Indian ' boy came into my cabin, from a camp some three or four hundred yards above here, 1 whore there ore about lurty Indians encamp- ed, and invited me lo go over to theii place and witness the burning of the bod; of o young squaw who was killed the day before in our diggings, by the bunk caving in on her. I gladly occepied the invitation, as I had been : Wishing for something to tarn up thai would ' takeoff' a portion of my loneliness, tod wont up with hitn to seethe curious process. I "The motive which impels the California Indians to burn their dead arises from a strange point in their religious views. They believe that there is a vast nnd plelatnt ! camping ground somewhere in the Par West, ! where Spirits of all Indians who have depart ' ed this life live together In perpetual ease j and plenty, ar.d which is presided over ly a Great Spirit of unspeakable gjedncs. They ' believe, also, that lliere is an evil Spirit, who is constantly watching every opportunity to injure them, nnd, who having the pou-er to keep them out of Heuven ua they now exist ! in the bidy, it is their duty, by conciliation or stratagem, to thwurt his plun. They be lieve, too, Ihut the heart is immortal, and I thai, while the body is burning, the heart 1 leaps out, and, if by noises nnd rriOtioM they j can attract tli evil Spirit's attention, the heort escapes to it. Heaven of eternal rest, I where it is forever pa.fi But il" the body is ! hurled, the evil one keeps conli'iuul guard over ihe grave, s j that when the heai t essays to escape, it is made prisoner, and islhence 1 rth employed to nnuoy the living relatives.

Every seund was then hushed, while the men Und women sat in group uround ti.e coqise, for about twenty minutes, They then till i -oe simultaneously the wom en to renew their tt'biUhff, and the men to build the funeral pyie. When the pyre was about two loot high, the noise ngain ceased, and u death-like silence reigned, while Ihe men lifted the corpse and placed it upon the i pyre. Then 'ho body was completely cover I ed with additional wood and combustibles Too oldest i ml dourest lelulive ofhe decea sed then advanced with n torch and tired the pile.

WHAT I LOVE. CONCLUDED. I love the calm and holy atillncs of llie Sabbath, when no sound is heard but the clear chime of lb. church bell ringing out upon Ih. slill ir, summoning the clnldreu of !jod to their accustomed place of worship. I love the house of God where his subjects bow before him in thankfulness and adora- ( tion and listen to the holy precepts of reli- ; giou thai fall like manna Irom the lip of llie f devoted mini'.er.. I love the thurch yard w here the marble r monuments rear their tall w hitn head over , the grnsy mounds, where slumber pence- ( lully those wo loved so fondly, ere they were stilled forever by the icy hand of death; but l whose spirits how keep their watchful vigil over US to keep our wandering ttapc in the i path ol duty. . I love to meditate on the scenes of my past . life, to the time w hen I wus but a merry chiid und my sweetest reward for doing d ;!y . was a smile or an approving glance from my j parents: then I thought that this world was all funshine that cljud never overshadow ed the atmosphere of life I thought that ev ery one I saw was happy too. because I was, bat I have found thatiuiiiing fuce often con ceul ncliing hearts. I love the calm nnd holy Iwiliglit hour when llie sunset glory ha. faded and silence prevnde the world.
