TbeGrat snbbnth I enjoyed here
during my prcient trip, and which
followed my first day' aogliug, wi
one of calm contemplation and poet
io eaie. The sun, as if to mike i
raetids forhis lung abscnoe, sent forth
bright, warm ray in most generous
muuuor, making field, forest and lake
look as if Dame Naturo had span
gled thcuc o'er with a new dress, such
as alio creates with a "brush of sun
beams dipped in morning dow." The
storms wore gone, the waning winds
bad diod away,
' ' And clouds bononlh the glancing ra
Mali ofl and lenva lha land and aaa
bleeping In bright tranquillity."
' The old Equinox had evidently
blowod out, and the barometer indi
cated "set' fair." Tho anglers, who
had retired tho evening previous,
disheartened at tho ' rough weather,
were now rejoicing at tho bright
turn of uirnirs : and us they convers
ed in groups us lha piaxsu of thn ha.
tollhit morning, their lus'U were
highly expressive of tho good time
e online, nicy bad lor near two
weeks been waiting for settled weutk
er, aud now that it had come their
couutoounces woro bright with sunny
smiles. .
Many were tho expeditions plun
ged "that day for the approaoliuig
morrow. Hope beckoned thom ou
with fair promises, and they trod the
rosy path as it the prize ot ploasuro
was in their grasp.
., Duriug the lovely day many wore
the strolls taken over the island.
Here you would sue a party walking
leisurely down the bejuh picking up;
sjmooth worn shells and bright peb
bles, aud scarring the tipups that
follow the retreating rollers to catch
the marine iuseots they leave, or ply
their spindle shanks shoreward as
they are ih.ised up the boaoh by the
iouomiog erf. ' J '" n
- There is a party dowu by tho old
haw tree, and with them a troop of
merry children, all eagerly picking
up tho fruit the wind hM blown to
the erouud. Yonder is a trii strol
ling through the forest that skirt
the rear of the island, aud but a
stoue's throw dowu the roid you will
observe i'iseator among the flowers
iu the highly cultivated garden of
Mr. Harns. Here, even till Novem
ber, will you find, in tha open air,
e most beautilul ol t loru s onerings
in full blooui and ripe berries that
ould make the mouth ot old Imhou
rus himself water to look at it.
And so the beautiful day passed
away, wmoi sow me pony in van
oub groups in tho office of t!ie hotel,

I am pleased to say there was too
muoh LOod breeding manifest to
cause any bitter expression of polit
ical teeliug. ihemostot too com
pany had oome here for the express
purpose of having a delightful visit,
and some lively sport with tho buss,
and they all displayed the most cour
teous respect tor eauli other s opin
ions, political, religious or otherwise.
John Uaipe, we believe it was, had
iust oonoluded a snake story as
approached the ciroie wniou ne nan
evidently interested. Colonel Hayes,
who was quite a glib and pleasant
talker, at onoe kept up the tutr rest
which Uaipe had created by relating
some laughable incidouts about
' Mills Tike."
I can't relate tho affair as tho Gl
onel told it, but will endeavor to give
as near a version of it as poBsibe
Mills, it appears, who was quite
ancler. invited friend, whom we
will call Miller, to eo a nenmg wun
him te Chatauqna Lake, Miller, who
alwavi boasted of his suecass with
the rod and line, accordingly went
They both fished tho greater part
the day without success, wniou
distrusted Miller that he discontinued
his attempt to allure tha fish, and
returnod to his store at a neighbor
ing village some five miles distant.
Mills, however, remained over uutil
the next day, when he had the good
fortune, on ooutinuiug his fishing
to catoh an enormous pike weighing
over forty pounds.
This was glory enough for him,
and he, therelore, took his pike
darted for home, residing in the same
tillaga that Miller did. Soon the
news flew around relative to Mills'
eapture, and Miller, of course, heard
of it, to hi chagrin. A party of
yoang men now determined to have
some sport with Miller; they, there
fore, concluded to each go separate
ly aud ak Miller if ho had heard of
Mills pike, hoping, thereby, to wor
ry the vainglorious angler.
So number ono starts on hi.i mi,
sion, and, soon as entering the Mil.
ler's store, commences as follows :
"O, Mr. Miller, have you heard ol
the big pike that Mills, caught this
morning? It weighs forty pounds."
" Ye," said Miller, not displaying
any feeling about it ; "Jones was in
here a moment ago, and mcotioncd
the fact to me."
Number one at this makes his ex
it, aud no sooner was he out than in
eomes number two, who commences:
"Oh, Mr. Miller I did you hear of
the big pike that Mills caught this
morning t I loaru it weighs over
forty pounds." 1
" Yes, I heard of it a few moments
ago," says tho unsuspecting Miller,
siill manifesting no aunoyauce at the
repitiiLn of the new.
Number two now departs and iu
comes number three, who no sooner
is at Miller' side tliau ho ex
claims :
"Oh, Mr. Millerl have you heard
of the big pike that Mill caught
this morning, down at tho lakf It
weighs over forty pounds."
" Yes," says Miller, beginning to
grow somewhat petulant, "I'vo heard
of it from several sources."
Out goes number throe, and in
eomes number four, ho starts off :
"Oh, Mr. Miller, have you heard
of the big pike that Mills caught at
the lake this morning? It woighs
over forty pounds."
" Yes, yos, I have heard of it, and
it is d ncd strange that Mills
can't catch a pike without having ev
erybody up in arms about it," replied
Miller, beginning to wax warm, and
show considerable annoyance over
the oft repcatod rbruse about Mill'
iHumbor four hero leaves, and re
ports to the remaining jokers that
the pill was tnkinj effect, and that
Miller was Cjuite excited.
Number hvo then enters and com
mences iu tho samo strain, when Mil
ler, beginning to see tho drift of the
joke, interrupted him before ho was
through by telling him that he hud
heard enough about " Mills I'ike."
Number six now has tho danger
ous part of the sorvice to perform.
but nothing daunted, enters and gets
as far as "Oh, Mr. Miller, have you
beard of when Miller, frantic
with rugc, bursts out "D n you;
u cverydody; d n Mills,
n his pike: d n the whnl
town I" ami with - ""ur ,ua,. a
dash for linn, but failed to catoh hi in
as the jokist was too expert. '
Miller wis now a leartui sight to
look at, and it would not to contin
ue the joke, lie took an ax handle
at this stage of the crisis, determin
ing to brain the next one that said
"Mills pike" to him.
Auother effort was to be made by
the jokers to give the grand olimax
to the affair, aud that was to poa a
letter that should contain the same
query, whioh another ot tue party
voluuteered to carry to tue nigniy
angered Miller. The letter was at
once prepared, and the boarcr start
ed on his perilous mission. Ap-
proaohing Miller, he discovered hi.u
on the alert with his ox handle, aud
lookinir so ferocious that he thought
he would hurdly run the gauntlet
with safety.
He, however, dar d the lion tn his
den. Assumiui; the moat serene
oouutcuuuee, he entered, when Mil
iar, raisini; his ax-handlo, at once
" I) n vou. don't vou say 'Mills
pike' to me, or I will scalp you."
"Why, what do you uie.in, Mr,
Miller, to accost me in this rude mau
ner? I just loft your cousin Henry
down the road, who requested me to
give you this letter as I was pas
inr? .'
" Very well, then." says Miller,
and takino the nroffored letter, he
comma joud oDenius it. when ' tho
bearer made a hasty departure.
No sooner did Miller oast bit eyes
over the letter than he saw , he was
soldacain. He turned to vent his
r,Aiif..im r.T. ariiinh nrnfl now huh
r .
bling over like a red-hot volcano, ou
the bearer, but he was nou etl.
The jokers were sutialiad at this
coup d'etat, and for n long time gave
Miller a wide lattitude.
Mills pike" however, still re
mains a standing joke in that village
and it must be quite ilcroulos that
even now dares to say anything be
fore Miller about "Mills pike."
" Mills pike was heartily enjoyed
by the crowd, for the Colonel ralated
it with snob a Humorous nonohaiooce
that there was no resisting its mirth
ful influence.
No sooner waa the laugh over than

One of the stirring adventures they
encountered was beiog caught la
heavy storm aa they were making
Middle Bass Island. It was
dark when the storm mddenly burst
upon them. It howled madly over
the sea, the billow rolled feai fully,
the wind blew a perfect bumoaoe,
the thunder boomed like a park
artillery, and tho lightning Sashed
with a vividness that appalled
stoutest heart, and it looked indeed
a if we would never make port..

a tack, and the waves breaking over
her, that one of the party, tleorge
High, in very excited state of mind
approached the captain and very nor
onsly asked : '
" How much is this boat worth?"
"Twenty-five hundred dollars,"an
sworcd the captain.
' Then run hor ashore."
" No; I'll not do that, but wilt try
to make tha pier."
" What t and risk tho lives of all
on hoard ?"
" It look ratacr dangerous.but I'd
rather send her to Davy Jon' lock
er in making for a port, theu be dash
ed to pieces against those rocks."
Tho dock, much to tho delight of
all aboard, was safely made, and then
eommtoed a desertion of the ship,
and a hasty retreat for a distant barn,
which waa only reached after numer
ous tumbles oxer old stumps.
High, to this d iy is frequently
quixscd about the value vf thiit
schooner, though ho stoutly avers
that he was not so much olarlnod, a
he was anxious to onoe nioro tread

Some one who wo a passenger ou

No wonder, theu. that th
fishermen that evening, aa they came
to make comparisons with rauh other'a
success, found themselves far distanc

The Cooke party promised not to
go back on us relative to the dona
tion, acd faithfully they kept their
word. But now that the eoutost for
supremacy in angling is over, I foci
it my duty to make the confession,
Inst some of tho nartv we so badlv
defeated will take to the dipsy at tho
next season s fishing, and thus aid in
soon spoiling tho jipleudid fishing
grounds around rut-in Bay Island.
Tho aftiiruoon's fishing was equally
as good as tho morning's ; and ou tho
next day, when wo visited Hattlesuake
Island, we found the fish iust as eauor
to take tho bait. Our catch that dav
amounted te seventy three, ninotecn
of which were lost from tho strinir by
tho carelessness of the oarsman.
Of course the capture of suoh a
number afforded us much sport, and
hud it not becu for two four nound
bass wkich I had lost from my hook,
there would havo been no rcirrets.
Wo flhed till ucur sundowu that

Tho capabilities of our climate,
owinc chiefly to tho extremes of heat
and cold, about which so much com
plaint is made, are much greater
than those ot the r.uropcnn countries
from which most of us derive our
ancestry. The capabilities are, as
yot, imperfectly developed, because
we naturully cling to the productions
and the modos of oulture inhorited
by our fathers, however unedited to
our surroundings. But the frequent
failures of late yenrs of somo of tho
fruits on which we wero wout to roly,
notably, apples and poaches, should
make us turn to others, though
heretofore uoknown among us,lf equal
ly valuable, and bow cert.iiu to hour
regular crops in our climat.
Among these, after trial of moro
than thirty years, the first of exper
iments, and latterly of complete
suocoss, I believe that the old fashion -ed
Biblical fig is ono ofthe most prom
The fig tree is hardy, boalthy, and
a quick grower, suits our summor
cliraato admirably, and is easily pro
tected without removal through our
severest winters ; is a sure bearer and
very prolitio. It grows from the slip,
aud i have had trees throe or four
years old bear a fuir crop the year
at tor they were transplanted.
After lao trees are tour or Ave
years old they produce from the same
area, with loss laoor, larger ana
more certain crop in Southern Ohio
than either potatoes or tomato.
The large yellow fig begins to ripen
about the same timo as the earliest
summer apples this year (1808) on
tbe 14th of July.
The smaller purple fig begins to
ripen about a mouth lutcr, and has
succession of crops until October
sometimes late iu October.
I mention these two varieties be
cause they have auoceedud best with
me. 1 have this year, for the first
time, dried a few of the large 'yellow
fiirs ftlie common fig of commeioj)

peaches, and much more regularly.

vf that celebrated royal hvuso, the
history of which the events taking
plaoe io Spain iuveit just now with a
peculiar interest.
Tho Houso of Bourbon, whioh has
given so many sovereigns to France,
S(ain aud Italy, is of French origin,
deriving its Da mo from the old lords
of Bourbon, a noble family whioh
touturioa ago held very large landed
possessions iu the former proviuee of

Charles X was driven out of his
kingdom by the Revolution of July,
it embracos a period filled with
events of the deepest interest nnd of
the highest possible importance to
the human family. From the acces

tho first French Evolution, there was
no break in tho royal succession of
the Bourbou line in Fruuoe. Louis
XIII, Louis XIV, XV, and Louis
XVI, woro all Bourbons; but, taking
tho first and tho last of thoso five as
regards their qualities as rulers,

Th establishment of tho Spanish
Bourbon dynasty originated with
Loui XVI of FraDoe, who iu
year 1700 succeeded in placing
grandson Philip, Duke f Aujou,
tho throne of Spain as Philip I.

Th 1st Bourbon dynasties of th

Moral Influence of Boots.
A writor in Casell's Magasine has
dissertation on the moral signifi
cance of bad boot when found upon-l
'" ; niup.iv da .moana in tins t ,
shame seems to have departed also
What terribly bad boots w se cross
ing-sweepers followiug their proles
siou in. JJUt tnese are sometimes
put on to excite pity. We fel this
ud tho elloot Is lost upoo us. Jiul
is there a more pltoous sight than a
poor beggar with a boot on oue foot
and a shoe ou the other? A man
brought to this point of degredatiou
must be demoralised beyond the hope
of recovery." -
lie then diroots his remarks to the
other sex in the following language :
With womon th moral iufluene of
bad boots ia not so great as with
men, for the reason that they ooo
trive not to ahow.thein; but tho
physioal influcnoa is fur more serious.
Ihe writer speaking trom a long ex
perience in the practice or a dispau
sary, whero the poor mainly apply,
can safely say thut not a tithe of this
class possess sound boots. - Hidden
under the petticoats, tbey ar allow
ed to wear sometimes until the feet
are just upon the ground, and tho
wearer a stockings are from morning
to night, iu wet weather, in state of
sop. . .,
This may seem a minor evil, but It
is just the evil that causes half tbe
'disoases uinoiin the poor women,
whose constitutions render thom far
less able to boar exposures - ot this
kind than the othor sex.' There are
olubs aud benefit societies of all kinds
but wo cannot fancy an institution
that would do moro immediate and
listing good than a "good boots
club, for the benefit of women Wo
msy ascend higher in tho social scale
and find tbe earn evil prevailing,
Many poor govcroosses and sorvants
are shockingly shod. It is just the
weak point iu their dress, which they
can ludo, and they invariably bid it
whereas it lies at lb foundation of
thoir health and that of their ohil
dreo, and it should claim their firt
attention. ' We luugh at the clatter
ing wooden sabots of the rreuch and
Herman working olasses, but in eom
parison with tho flimsy, ill-made foot
coverings our own poor indulge in
they are more healthy and lasting
but fashion, even with tho poor, i
far more powa.l'ul, we fear, than eon
siderations of health or sorvies.
We bave sid enough to show that
"bad boots" may be considered on
of those social evils of th day
worthy of reeognitioo. : It was the
ish of -ORS of th best trench
kings that very poor mso. should
have R fowl io bis pot. If wishes
had th power of fulfilling them
selves, It would be a good wish that
very poor woman had a sound pair
of boots to bee it. ir thatwtr
th ouie. there would be far less
disease, and half tha dispensary
doors in towu would bo elosed.
