Mr. Editor.?It is seldom that it
falls to our lot, in these days of dark
ness and gloominess, to realize so
much of joy and gladness as seemed
apparent on Saturday May 20th, and
in which it was the good fortune of
the writer to participate.
At an early hour a young friend,
Mr. Win. Mason, formerly of dear
old Edgeficld came, according to a
previous arrangmeut. with a fine turn
out to convey me to a Temperance
meeting which I had been invited to
address, to beheld at 4 o'clock in the
hall over his shop, located on the

Sometimes these gatherings are at
tended, as on this occasion, with a
feast of good things, when old and
young male and female assemble and
enjoy in addition, "a feast of reason
and a How of soul," as seems to have
been the custom of the early Chris

upon any other, that can hut he re

Curiosity heedsah inside as well as

one it often forgets to take. An En
glish carter, John Black, of Lan
cashire, cat ricd a load of coal, one
day, lo a private insane asylum near
Warrington, and while waiting for
his pay, conceived a resistless desire
to peep within, and see what a chain
ed lunatic looked like. The Scottish
American tells what followed :
Black, seeing no-one to oppose his
entrance, slipped through the door,
up n littlo flight of stairs, along n
lobby, and hearing some onecomiug,
popped slyly iclo a little chamber
with bars across the window. II?
waited, and as soon as he thought all
was safe, moved to go out, when, ter
rible to behold, John found it was
cosier to get in than out, for it was a
lunatic cell; but by no means so oblig

What was to be done?
John had evidently Been quite suffi
cient of the establishment, and his
only thoughts were how to free him
self. Just as ho was debating wheth

at the risk of being complained of and
probably dismissed by his employers,
a philnnlhropicully disposed lady dud
gentleman, who bad called to inspect

ly and- sorrowfully upon the scene.

gentlemen. 'You sec at thi.s moment

Seeing that they paid no attention
to bis pleadings, and were turning
away, John did rave. He was a inad
man in good earnest. Teu minutes

noise, and on repuiringio the place,
found our friend John clinging to the
bars and bellowing, amidst groans
and tears: 'I am the man that
