I HENRY R. MACK. Hurdwick, April 9, 1877. 1-8 J" REVENCE OF INJURIES. The fairest action of our hiun.in lifts Is scorning to revenge an Injury ; For who forgives without a further strife, His adversary's heart to him doth tie, And 't is firmer conquest truly eaid. To win the heart, than overthrow the head. If we a worthy enemy do find, To yield to worth It must be nobly done ; But if of baser metal be his mind, In base revenge there is no honor won. Who would a worthy courage overthrow? And who would wrestle with a worthless foe? TV"e say our hearts are great, and cannot yield; ' Because they cannot yield, It proves them poor: Groat hearts are tasked beyond their power but sold ; The weakest linn will the loudest roar. Truth's school for certain doth this same allow : LTigh-heartedrn'SS doth sometimes teach to how. A nohlo heart doth teach a virtuous scorn : To scorn to owe a duty overlong ; To scorn to be for benefits forborne; To scorn to lie ; to scorn to do a wrong ; To scorn to bear nu injury in mind ; To scorn a free-born heart slave-like to bind. But if for wrongs we needs revenge must have, Then be our vengeance of the noblest kind. Do we his body from our fury save, And let our hate prevail against his mind? What can against him h greater vengeance bo, Then make his foe more worthy far Hum he? Elizabeth Carrw. CUR STORY. BILL WHYTE. (Cvnlinncd.) "For tho first fortnight we tlidn't cat the king's biscuit for nothing. We had terrible luivd fighting on the 13th ; and, had not our ammunition failed us, wc would have beaten the cnemv ill to rayrs : but for tho last two hours Hadn't a nhot: snd tml ,jnj( lit,, so many targets set up to be fired at. I was never more fixed in my life than when I saw my comrades falling around me, and all for nothing. Not only could I see them falling, hut, in the absence of every other noise, lbr 'we had ceased to cheer, and stood as si lent and as hard as foxes, I could hear the dull, hollow sound of the shot as it pierced them through. Some times the bullets struck the sand, and then rose and went rolling over the level, raising clouds of dust at every skip. At times we could see them coming through the air like little clouds, and singing all the way as they came. But it was the frightful smoking shot that annoyed us most ; those horrid shell. Sometimes they broke over our heads in the air, as if a cannon charged with grape had been fired at us from out the clouds. At times they sank into the sand at our feet, and then burst up like so many Vesu viuses, giving at once death and burial to hundreds. But we stood our ground and the day passed. I remember we got, towards evening, into a snug hollow between two sand-iiills, where the shot skimmed over us, not two feet above our heads ; but two feet is just as cood as twenty, master ; and I be gan to think, for the first time, that I hadn't got a smoke all day. I snap ped my musket and lighted my pirc ; and Bill, whom I hadn't seen since the day after the landing, came up to share with me. " 'Bad day's work, Jack,' he said ; but we have at least taught tho ene my what British soldiers can endure, and, ere lonir, we shall teach them something more. But hero comes shell 1 Nay, do not move,' he said ; 'it will fall just ten yards short.' And down it came, roaring hko a tempest, sure enough, about ten yards away, and sank into the sand. 'There now, fairly lodged,' said Bill; 'lie down, lads, hie down.' We throw ourselves flat on our faces ; the earth heaved under us like a wave of tho sea l afld in a moment Bill and I were covered with half a ton of sand. But the. nieces whizzed over us: and, save that the man who was across me had an ammunition bag carried away, not one of us more than heard them. On getting ourselves disinterred, and our pipes re-lighted, Bill, with a twitch on the elbow so said he wished to speak with nie a little apart ; and we went out together into a hollow in fion. 44 4 You will think it strange, Jack,' he said, 'that all this day, when the cn eiu3''8 bullet were hopjiing around us like hail, there was but just one idea that filled my mind and I could find room for no. other. Ever since I saw Colonel Westhopc, it has been forced upon me, though a newly-awakened dream-like recollection, that he is the gentleman with whom I lived ere I was taken away by your people j for taken away I must have been. Your moth er used to tell me that my father was a Cumberland gipsy, who met with jiojuo. l-ad accident from the law ; but I am now convinced he must have deceived me, and that my father was no such sort of man. You will think it strange ; but, when putting on- my coat this morning, my eye caught the silver bar on the sleeve, and there leaped into my mind a revived recollection of having worn a scarlet dress before, scarlet bound with silver ; and that it was in the house of a gentleman and a lady whom I had just learned to call papa and mamma. And every time I see the colonel, as I say, I am reminded of the gentleman. Now, for heaven's sake, Jack, tell me all you know about me. Yyu are a few years my senior, and must re member better than I can myself under what circumstances I joined your tribe.' " ' Why, Bill,' I said,' I know little of Hie matter, and 'twere no great wonder though these bullets should confuse me somewhat in recalling what 1 do know. Most certainly we never thought you a gipsy like our selves; but then I am sure-mother never stole you ; she had family enough of her own ; and besides, she brought with Iter for your board, she said, a purse with more gold in it then I have seen at one time either before or since. 1 remember it kept us all comfortably in the creature for a whole twelvemonth ; and it wasn't a trifle, Bill, that could do that. You were at first like to die among us. You hadn't been accus- as onrs. -And, dear me ! how the rags you were dressed in used to annoy you ; but you soon got over all, Bill, and became the hardiest little fellow among us. I once nearu my mouier say xnai you were u lave-bryit, and that your father, who was an English gentleman, had to part from both you and your mother on taking a wife. Ami no more can 1 tell you, Bill, for the life of me. " We slept that night on tho sand, master, and found in the morning that the enemy had fallen back some miles nearer Alexandria. Next evening there was a party of us despatched on some secret service across tho desert. Bill was with us ; but the officer under whoso special charge we wero placed was a Captain Turpic, a nephew of Colonel Westhopc, and his heir. But he heired few of his good qualities. He was the son of a pettifogging law yer, and was as heartily hated by the soldiers as the colonel was beloved. Towards sunset, the party reached a hollow valley in the waste, aud there rested, preparatory, as we eagaged in erecting temporary huts of branches, some in providing the necessary mate rials ; and we had just lormeu a snug little camp, and were preparing to lisrht our fires for supper, when we heard a shot not two furlongs away Bill, who was by far the most active among as, sprang up one of the tallest date trees to reconnoitre. But he soon came down again. " ' We have lost our pains this time,' ho said : 'there is a party of French, of fully five times our number, not a milo away.' The captain, on the news, wasn't slow, as you may think, in ordering us off; and, hastily gath ering up our blankets and tho contents of our knansacks. we struck across the sand just as the sun was setting There is scarce any twilight in Egypt master : it is pitch dark twenty min utes after sunset. Tho first part of tho evening, too, is infinitely disagree able. The clays are burning hot, and not a cloud can be seen in the sky but no sooner has the sun gone down than there comes on a thick white fog that covers tho whole country, so that one can't sec fifty yards around ; and so icy cold is it, that it strikes a chill to the vorv heart. It is with these fogs that the dews descend : and dead lv thinffs thev are. . Well, the mist t? o and the darknens came upon us t once : we lost all reckoning ) and after floundering on for an hour Or so among the sand-hills, our captaN called a halt, and bade us burrow cs we ltfst might among the hollows. 'Hungry as we were, we were fain to leave our stiji))er to begin the morning with, and huddled all together into w uit seemed a deep, dry ditch. We Were at Cist surprised, master, to find an immense heap of stone under us ; we couldn't have lain harder had we lain on a Scotch cairn ; aud that, d'ye sec, is unusual in Egypt, where all tho sand has been blown by the hc-vliids Trom ttie dcberl, hundreds oi' miles "away, aud where, in the course of a few days' journey, one mayn't see a pebble larger than a pigeon's egg. There were hard, round, bullet-like masses under us, and others of a more oblong shape, like pieces of wood that had been cut for fuel ; aud, tired as we were, their sharp points, protruding through the sand, kept most of us from sleep. But that was littlo, mas ter, to what we felt afterwards. As we began to take heat together, there broke out among us a most disagreea ble stench, bad at first, and unlike anything 1 had ever smelt before, but at last altogether overpowering. . Some of us became dead sick, and some, to show how much bolder they were than the rest, began to sing. One-half the party stole away one by one, and lay down outside. For my own part, master, I thought it was the plague that was breaking out upon us from below, and lay still, in desprir of es caping it. I was wretchedly tired, too ; and, despite of my fears and the stench, I fell asleep, and slept till day light. But never before, master, did 1 see such a sight as w hen I awoko. We had been sleeping on the carcasses of ten thousand Turks, whom Bona parte had massacred about a twelve month before. There wero eyeless skulls grinning at us by hundreds from the side of the ditch, and black, withered hands and feet sticking out, with the while bones glittering between for roods around, had a brown ferrug inous tinge, and seemed baked into a half-solid mass rcsembiin chiv. Tf clay. was no place to loiter in ; and you may trust inc. master, we breakfasted sew here. Bill kept close to our cap tain all that morning. He didn't much like him, even so early in their ac quaintance as this, no one did. in tet ; but he- was anxious to learn from im all he could regarding the colonel. lie told him, too, something about his own early recollections ; but he would better have kept them to him self. From that hour, master, Cap ain Turpic never gave him a pleasant look, and sought every means to ruin him. "We joined tho finny again on the evening ot tne nutn March, ion know, master, what awaited us next morning. I had been marching, on tho day of our arrival, for twelve hours under n very hot sun, and was fatigued enough to sleep soundly. But the dead might have awakened next morning. The enemy broke in upon us iiboufj three o'clock. It was pitch dark. I had been dreaming, at the moment, that I was busily engaged in the landing, fighting in tho front rank beside Bill ; and I awoke to hear the enemy outside tho tent struggling in fierce conflict with such ot my com rades as, half-naked and half-armed, had been roused b- the first alarm, and had rushed out to oppose them. You will not think I was long in join ing them, master, when I tell you that Bill himself was hardly two steps ahead of mo. Colonel Wcsthope was everywhere at once that morning bringing his men, in the darkness and the confusion, into something like or der, threatening, encouraging, np- plauding,issiiing orders allinabrcath Just as we got out, the French broke through beside our tont, and we saw him struck down in the throng. Bill gave a tremendous cry of 'Oar colonel 1 our colonel ! and struck bia pike np to the cross into the breast of the fel low who had given the blow. And hardly had that one fallen' than he sent it crashing through tho face of the next foremost, till it lay buried in the brain. The enemy gave back for moment ; and as he was striking down a third, tho colonel got up, badly wounded in the shoulder ; but he kep the field all day. Ho knew Bill the moment he rose, and leant on him till he had somewhat recovered. 'J sluiU not forget. Bill,' lie said, 'that you have saved your colonel's life.' We had a fierce struggle, master, ero we ' beat out the French ; but, broken and ; half-naked a9 we were, we did leat ' them out, and the battle became gen eral, "At first the flare of artillery, as the batteries blazed out in the dark ness, dazzled and blinded mo ; but I loaded and fired incessantly, and. the thicker the bullets went whistling past the, the faster I loaded and fired. A spent shot, that had struck through a sand-bank, came rolling on like a hqwl, and, leaping tip from a hillock In front, stnick me on the breast. It was such a blow, master, ns a man might have given with his list ; but it knocked mo down, and ere I got up, the company was a few paces in advance. The bonnet of the soldier who had taken my place came rolling to my feet ere I could join them.' But, alas ! it was full of blood and brains, and I found that the spent shot had come just in time to save my life. Meanwhile, the battle raged with redoubled fur' on the left, and we in the centre had a short respite ; and some of us needed it. For my own part, I had fired about a hundred rounds, and my right shoul der was blue as your waistcoat. "You will wonder, master, how I should notice such a thing in tho heat of an engagement ; but I remember notiimg ncttcrinau tnat mere was a flock of little birds shrieking and flut tering over our heads for the greater part of the morning. The poor little things seemed as if robbed of their very instinct by the incessant dis charges on every side of them ; and, instead of pursuing a direct course, which would soon have carried them clear of us, they kept fluttering in one ittle spot. About mid-day, an aide- de-camp went riding by us to the right. RELIGIOUS.

Qenrge, Wither. Camisiudoe, N. Y., April 21, 1877. Editor News : I want to tell the Christian women of your county something about the work that women of this State aro doing for the far-off heathen : for tho land of darkness and idolatry. It may en courage them, and when women sit idle, day by day, sighing for tho time when they may stand an equal to man, and cast a vote by his sido, I only ask them to take one view of the poor, nidging women of Siam, Tcrsin, and other heathen lands, as we get it from returned missionaries, and they can but realize that women havo a much greater work to do than to cast a bal lot. The annual meeting of tho "AVom an's Trcsbytcrian Board of Foreign Missions, Synod of Albany r" was hol den in this villace, Anril 18th. The two branches of this society Troy and Albany, sent 75 ladies to attend the meeting. They aro at work in be half of a girls' school, started in Siam, three years ago, and supporting mission aries. Among the number present, was Mrs. House, wife of Dr. Samuel House, of Watcrford, N. Y. She has been a missionary laborer in Bankok, Siam, for thirty years. In the morn ing, she addressed the' ladies as fol lows: " I have been a missionary 30 years. When I went back to Siam tho last time : it was twenty years ago : I found it very different from what it was when I wont there the first time. I was 85 lays out of sight of land, with only the poor provision which the ships of those days carried. You know very little of heathen hearts, if vou imagine that they can be brought out of darkness, very rapidly. It is darkness on every side, there. You must live there, to get a true idea of it. I found the peo pie ignorant ; now, most of tho men, can read. We have had a boys' school for thirty years. But it has taken all these long years to get the minds of the people redeemed from the prejudice against women, so we could start school for girls. And three years ago I had tho honor to organize 'the first boarding school for girls ever organized in Siam. It is in Bankok. I left twenty pupils eighteen 'boaKlers and two day scholars, in it. It is doing well indeed. It is to the ladies of this vicinity that I am indebted for the help, or money to st.irt that school. They sent me $3000 with which I laid the foundation fr a school for girls, that the girls might le educated as well as the boys of Siam. The Siamese, are a Ieople of simple habits, olive complex ion, black hair, black eyes and teeth, made so by constantly chewing a veg etable. They say that monkeys and foreigners have white teeth. Their homes wero very different from our homes. ' Until wo went there, tLey knew nothing of a loving wife and mother trying to make a Christian home. A wife was only a beast of burden, sent to the fields to dig and lalnir, while the men had all the knowl edge and pleasure. The Siamese eat with their fingers, burn their dead, wear white for mourning, and have nothing which deserves the name of religion. I brought home with me two Siamese boys, to be educated for Christian teachers, among their own people. I want the prayers of all Christian people that the' may he converted while here, and returned to their Christian mothers to preach the gospel in their own land. They are to remain here eight years. Oue is 12 years old, the other, eight. Siam has two kings. The first and second. The second is merely nominal. He does not rule or succeed to the throne. The name of tho present one is George Washington, who was named so by his father, who had read of our George Washington. The king who now rules is only 23 years old ; is a Christian, and, by living a Christian life, he looses his crown on earth, but gains one in heaven. I want you should all pray for him. He is doing a wonderful work toward civilization. His grand father was the first convert in Siam, and, for 23 years, was a consistent Christian. When I went there the king came to meet us. He . was per fectly nude, with tho exception of a i, ,i t.. .jv -i his arm, to escort me to the palace, I took it and walked along by his side, trying to appreciate tho honor confer red upon me. lie could speak but two words of English, "come here." But it is different now. No person can go to his majesty without being dressed in pants, coat, vest, shirt, collar and hat. The king has imported an English tailor from Calcutta and their clothes aro made in the most fashionable stylo. One prince camo many miles to us to learn how to tie a cravat, or neck-tie, Siam is now clothed, and wo aro try ing to get it in its right' mind, every' way. They havo no roads, but go in boats. e go out on our missionary tours in a 6 by 7 boat, where wo eat, sleep ami work ; ono room for every thing ; and wo stay whereever night overtakes us, without tho least fear. Bankok has ono chapel and ono boing erected in connection with our girls' school. For the 5,000,000 in Siam there are only five missionaries." Is here not a field for women who want something to do? Need any want for emyloyment, who have health trength ? God has opened a way for all the sons and daughters of this blessed globe to bo useful if they will. A few missionaries have been called home, because there was not funds enough sent out there to support them" Will God bless us t if we deafen our ears, and harden oirr hearts, when the cry comes to us from those perishing souls, who need a Saviour's love? In tho afternoon session, Mrs. House was followed by Rev. Dr. Colin, of Oroo mice, Persia. He was Oriental in style, with a full, gray beard, and gave a graphic discription of missionary life in Persia. I wish I dared take the space to tell ii all to you. I will tell you some of it. Said he: "Women are doing a great work toward the spread of the gospel. I have heard in distant lands of the good work you are doing, and you can never know how it rejoices our hearts to read your ro ports. I am glad women are rising to the full dignity of their nature. I dp not wonder that women followed Jesus up from Jordan to Jerusalem, minis tering to his wants : I do not wonder Mary sat at the feet of Jesus, listen ing in such rapt attention to his words. I do not wonder woman wasr the last rt the cross, and first at the sepulchre, Do not wonder that Jesus has taken her up out of the dust and degradation to be leaders and purifiers in a workl 'of darkness. I sailed for Persia, 25 years ago, with my wife. We had a tedions journey aeros the' Atlantic and travelltxl after that six- nund'red miles on horse-back, to Oroomia, Per--sia, where we were to labor.- Thcj' had no Bible till we carried it to them. They have no' railways there, no car-' riages go on homo back always. Tho mountains aro stoop, snow Eos there' till summer, when it melts and over flows the country, sometiuaes'' doing:' serious damage. They have nd' rain' or dew in Persia. Woiilen are heir tM mere sen-ants there, the same' aa inr Siam and all foreign heathen; landa. Women and girls came out to See ns5 when we arrived,- and stared' at my wife because' she rodtf sideways;- t asked them about their soul's, ahd'they said, "ask our husbands." They have' plenty of religion but no salvation.' The boys and girls used' to marry at very tender age'. The: boys' at' eight and the girls at' ton aW twelve," and they are never allowed to select for" themselves ; often never see eacli'othcr" till presented for the marriage ceremo-' ny. The 'girl is always" veiled-'so-tufbk ly that no one'ean tell who stie is; Tho" friends bring wine for the groom", and' apples for the brido. After marriage, the wife is never allowed' to' eat with1 her husband, or speak to him in1 prctK ence of others. If a man is asliefl how many children he has, he always an swers according to the number of boys' in the family, and no mention- is ever made of the girls.- The' wife' trikW her infant and goes into- tho" field in-' the morning to work?. Somltirncs; she goes to' tho spot where she left her" childj and finds it has rolled' abbut" till it has fallen into the river and drowned.- It is taken away from her and buried,- but she goes to its grave and wailrand weeps, for they love their littlo' 6nes, though they have no hopo of meeting' them again. Tho mussulmon take' all the prettiest wives they find, a'nd! oath' mlissuhnan has several wives'.- My' wife once ventured into- one' of tiicir' harems and saw such degradation1 as; en to reach these and mairy otli'er places, for men cannot get into them But thanks to God, 25 years of con stant labor there has changed- all tills; wonderfully. There are' chrfstSrarr homes there now wheto the' -wife andf mother is loved and' respected' and' has her usual place in the family.- Deacons and priests wero allowed to lcafti how to read, and none others.- When Miss' Fiske asked the women to' learn to1 read, they said : "They will- laugh' at us," but sho induced three to-' come to her school and so sho started a school which has done a wonderful amount of good. They road tho bjblo and oan tell' all about it. In four months they ooulci . read tho New Testament w'otf.- The' women do not go about veiled now as they used to. They soo how we love' and respect each other in our homes,' and they follow our example as closely' as possible. The greatest Work Woman1 can do is to go there, and by her exam ple, help to enlighten those down trod den womon of heathehismY There are many natives preaching and' teaching the gospel of Jesus' ntW ami Persia' is' improving." , Now when we hear these things which1 women are doing, can any stand back and say, no woman is capable of teach ing the blessed gospel ? That Se snbulct take no part in public worship t May all the women of the land; aWaken to" the cry, which comes up from1 ttie cTepttis of darkness, and boldly and bravely defend the nations of the earth less blest than we are: '..,,.,, . MAUD. Shocking. A pair of those interest ing; entertaining lacties who seem w carry on so large a business in the' way of subscription's for new works, and who" are stf delightfully importa'n'a'te, so' sweetly un-got-rid-able, called si short time since at the offlee of si young law yer, for the purpose of getting him' to1 subscribe 'Indeed, ladies," said he,' the partnership of which' I am but an1 humble member has been so' imprudent as to issue a hew work' 6'f their' own; which, in consequence of the enormous1 expense attending itei illustrations,' embellishments, etc., has completely crippled us.'' ''Then; perhaps," re plied the angelic cauvasser', "we could procure you some subscribers'. What doyou call your work?" "Well, we have not fully determined as yet ; but I giiesy I'll let my wife have her own way, and call it after me Charles Henry ." i-i--"""
