Ai. correspondent of the Paris
Gatdois desoribps a recent visit to a
slave. sale in Constantinople, Not
withstanding the nominal abolition
of the slave trade in Turkey, through
the efforts of the oivillaed Eur pean
Governments, it still continues in a
furtive way, As long as the harem
exists, this trade will exist.
This sale was in a house. All the
winlows facing on the street were
closed. The correspondent accom
panied an Egyptian friend and his
valet in a carriage to the mosque of
the Sultan Mahomet, at which point
they turned into narrow and com
pliqated streets, which finally be
came impassable. They alighted
before apile of mud which could be
crossed only on foot. Reaching the
house, they were introduded into th1e
selemlik, or chamber reserved for
nale visitors, Here they found th
slave dealer standing, a shoryt pipe
in hand. He was a little old Tri:
politan, . Gassirgi-Messoud-Aga by
narge. He has followed the busi
ness for forty years. After the cus
tomary salutations, pipes and coffee
were offered and taken with the
silence pAcual to Orienitals brpgrp any
business transaction. An ebony
young eungeb soon entered and
whispered in Messoud's ear. The
latter made a sign of acquiescence,
and, turpni to the guests, said ,
"Bouyouron (permit me.) The
guests rose and followed him into
the rooin of the harem. A long
diyan, about a foot and a half high
and four feet wide, surrounded
three sido Qf the chamber. An
excavation in the wall held the
cushions and coverings used at
night. The floor was covered with
mats and loose pieces of carpet.
Upon the divan were seated, side by
side, two white girls from Circassia,
in the dress of their country. Op
posite were three other women, one
of whom was white, from Georgia,
snd the others black. All arose as
the visitors entered. One of the
Circassians seemed scarcely 14.
She-lad bright chesnut hair, long
dark pyc-lashes, which shaded eyes
pf liquid blue ; a light, well-rounded
form and regnj fpatgres, overcast
with melancholy. She was a beauty
of the first class. Her companion,
aged 18, was slightly less beautiful,
but was , parformer on the
kemendja or Turkish violin. In
addition, she was recommended as a
good cook, seamnstress and washer.
Her brown hair fs)) fio har knees.
She looked, at the visitore coolly,
and fixed her eyes on jthe Egyptian
with an expression that seampd to
aisk him to purchase her. At a sg
from Messoud one of the black girls
disrobed the Circassians. This was
not a complicated procers, as their
dress ~as simply a tunic, a pair of
trousr snad a chemise, The
youn'ger seemed distressed; the
other simply fixed her eyes upon the
floor. Messoud passing his hands
over them, called attention to their
good ppoints, and made them show
th~ regular, pearly teeth. He
dw also upon the strict decorum
of t~erantecedents. After an ex
aminagon .of the Oprgian and a
glanee at th~e black girls the par~y
.returned to the selamlik to close the
bargais.. The younger Circasiani
was quoted at 200 pounds Turkish,
th el r 4 180, the Georgian at
120i The - pjiian found them
too high priced and took one of the
black girls for 88 pound.s He sum
ply wantsd a house servant. The
Malebeb comlpted, the party were
pgainasepwed .wit pipes and coffee,
and-lef4he'housp..
'The pr~elimiinaries to this were
conducted with great caution. The
valet of the )Dgyptian was sent th~e
day b.efore -to annsounca Maj muaster's

A few Quotations Commonly Suppoggd
to be from the Bible.
There are many familiar phraseo
in cogstant use, which the majority
of the people supuse to have their
origin in the Bile, an4d use them in
that connection. The New York
Observer corrects tlis errox in the
following lpanner, But, as the
phrases are very fine, we still love
to see them. To prevent piisquota
tion from the scripture, it gives
them thbug
('God tempers the wind to the
shorn lamb." From Sterno's "Sen
timental Journey to Italy." Com
pare Isaiah xxvi., 6.
"In the midst of life we are in
death." From the Burial Service ;
and this originally from a hymn of
Luther.
"Bread and wine which the Lord
hath commanded to be received."
From the English Catechism.
"Not to be wise above what if
written." Not in Scripture.
"The merciful man is mereiful to
his beast.' The Scriptural form is :
"A righteous man regardeth the life
of his beats." Prov, i 10.
"A nation shall be born in a day."
In Isaiah it roads : "Shall a nation
be born at once ?"
"As iron sharpeneth iron, so doth
t man the countenance of a friend."
"Iron sharpeneth ; so a man sharpen
eth te countenance of his friends."
Prov. xxvii., 17.
"That he who runs may read."
"That he may run that readeth."
Hob. xi., 2.
"Owe no man anything but love."
"Owe no man anything but to lpye
one another."-[Rore. x ;i., 8.
"Prone to sit as tho sparks fly
upward." "Born to trouble as the
sparks fly upward."-[Ron. v, 7.
"Exalted to Hoaye in point Qi
privilege." Nqt in the Bible.
1vo was not Adam's helpmate, but
merely a help meet for him ; nor
was Absalom's long hair the instru
ment of his destruction ; his head,
and not hair upon it, haying been
caught in the bows of the tree. (2
Samuel, xviii., 9.) .A London wig
maker once made a sign iupon which
was pairyted Absalon3 suspended
from the branches of the oak by his
hair, and underneath the following
couplet:
If Absalom hadn't worn his own hiir,
He'd no'er been found banging to it.
