' ?? -> j * __ " r (The following narrative, with scarcely an alteration, is true. The particulars, tluilling as ihey are, were taken from the mouth of the mfartounte creature, during one 01 tue lucia tntetfvais between his howls of madness while confined in the madhouse of P , England, and may be remembered as being noticed bv the journals of the time; the notes were laid k aside?but not forgotten, and the author but waited an opportunity to place them in this manner before the public.] I "And here," said the keeper, as lie came to No. 18,from whence came low moaning, "here we have a strange prisoner, from whom you ^ may gather a bile worthy of note, and surpass* 3 ing any you have taken, if we can hut find him quiet, as he is at times; a strange story is his, and he is ofte of the most savage and raving prisoners we have at times." ?Lo niilnoLml ttin Hnniv nftor hav ww raj nig, no uiiiuuucm lag looked through the gate, and we entered; crouched down upon his iron and immovable stool in the corner, with his face buried in his hands, his hair long, black and matted, his dress fantastical and strange ?being but the attire, torn in various places, of a ring mimic?was a man, who moved not at our entrance; ho was, like all we had seen, chained by the wrists to the floor, rendering it impossible lbr him to move more than was required in sitting or lay. ing upon the coarse bed beside him. Nothing escaped him except a low moaning, which, at times, he sent forth, and slinking his head, buried it still deej*er in his hands. The keeper said in this manner he had passed whole days and then ho was more penceabie and less vio>0t. Touching him with the end of the stick lie lield in his hand, he said?"Look up." And the miserable creature turned up his haggard ! face to bar view. "Why do you come here ngain," Mid be, sadly?" to make n show of me t You tell tne, find tnose who come ta see me, that I am mad! do you not fear me ? ay, strong man?do yon not fear me, weak creature that I am ? yea, and so you chain my arms und hands and feet, bo that I caunot lift them up, | Imt look ye, there is one tiling you cannot manI acle, and if you could, I would bear all the j chains that could lie heaped upon me?my : mkxoky! Chain that! keep that dread from ! before me?let it not haunt me night and day? let ine not hear that voice that rings forever in I my ear, and you may chain and load me down, and [ will thank you for i:." And he dropped his head and buried his face onco more in his hands. "He has not been bo rational for many a I day," said his keeper, "for which 1 am truly thankful, for lie is like a lion when the fits are ' on liini," and? | "Ha! ha! ha J*' shouted the madman, rising, i and flinging his arms as high as his manacles ! allowed?"ha! ha! ha! I am with you once a | gain, torn?, is all ready J wiio goes iirsu why do you stare so wildly at me'( (-0:110, I am merry, and shall make thorn laugh to-night! -r-rhal-^a.1 ktiu his pale face was lit up with a'wild demoniacal expression. Soon he .spoke again : " Where's Mary ? not come yet ? Strange ? it's time?long past time, and she knew well she should he here oarh. \\ hy gaze at nie? she is not - no, no, no, nothing has happened? tell me, is slie safe, is iny dear child sale? Oh (?od! J leiiiemher, Mary is dead?dead! Hd ha! ha !'' And with loud shrieks, he dashed his liniid to his forehead. Soon he sat down again upon his low iron t-t 10I, dejectedly, and spoke not; then looking up again, he gazed round and upon the keeper and myself who stood by the door beyond his reach. "l-oino nearer to me," said ho beckoning; j ' come near, not you ; no, not you, I fear you," j and he shuddered as the keeper stepped towards him?"1 fear you, for your eyes strike terror j t ? my heart; and that, and the form of my child before me ever, are all a dread! ? Come, and I will tell you of my child?my little Murv. my own pet child, I'll tell you how she died."' $ot dan tig to trust myself within his roach, 1 slopped as near to liiin as possible, so that lie could nut roach me; he bent forward, placed (lis head upon his hand and with a sudden tremor, and wildly glaring eye, he began: Unco, 1 know not wneii, but I could count by days, I knew the night, could tell tbo bright sun and clear moon and stars, hut now all are the same (o me?days 1 know none, and light lingers around me ever; well, long, long ago, ere i came to this dull, gloomy place, i was out umuug men; drank, ate, ciied, laughed, like men, aye, and that too merrily, lor I Was jester in (lie ring, made the crowd, 'die heartless ra!?hle laugii ami shout, and raised a merry iioi?c, iio matter, jf my heart was sick or guy, out 1 was glad sometimes to see the long tiers, tiie closely packed boxes, and tiie stalls, each .me witli smiles, to hear tiie loud laugh and the merry words, and know that i was the cause ?l - ? . ,1 III I oi u all?id near uie iduu nmraos, mui iu rcc | them wave their hats ami handkerchiefs, when, j with a shrill whoop, 1 jumped into the ling. , Tuat would cheer inesoinetiiueb' when my heart ; belied the laugh upon my face, the jest to which my tongue gave utterance. "Well, so yea s went on, until my wife my own belov- ' Mary, died; she whom i loved so fondly and truly, i laid to sleep in the cold, dainpcnith; n > one could 4?ve thought that 1, the jester, the clown, the one who then laughed, could weep! lint, oh! how many hours I nave passed beside that lonely gravel my Mary! she loved me as few women love; the had trod on the same rough road, walk beside me iu my troubles and sorrows, sharing what i enjoyed or suffering without a murmur, and waeu I kii'-w she was dead, it seemed as if my time on earth was over, and t.?e same grave dug for her should take me also. But she had lctt me one over whom 1 must watch with noxiousness, and love, if j ossibl , more than heretofore- -my lit tie (laughter, the image of her mother, my own little |?et Mary. " I struggle with the deep, the hitter curse of poverty. Could I have gai >ed a livelihood hy toil, incessant hardship and endurance; elsewhere, gladly would 1 have rushed to it, and blessed heaven for its kindness. Hut no; poor broken-down, a miserable wretched man?no profession, no business save the one 1 followed. 1 was still forced to drag on the arena, where my wants allowed but a very short, scanty respite upon my wife's death. Hut wh.-.t cared the crowd? the clown should not he said; no, no, impossible for the ring jester to weep, it was a thing unheard of, and would raise a louder laugh than any of my it.. i:_ ? ?us? *..u :,i. .. i... II Will? !?l Nlllll'Si I 111 dU, ?l lll'tll t V*CI burtlied, sick and faint, I was forced to laugh and make merry. "Oil, what a pleasure and joy to me was little Mary! how her sweet artless smiles lit np the gloom within my breast?how her mcrrv laugh made ins feel young and happy for the time, and with what fondness, strange, ay, mad devotion, did I hang upon every word, every look of hers! She grew and was beautiful indeed. "How many hours when the toil of my profession was over for the night did I sit beside her little cot, and gaze upon her as she lay sleeping before me ! often, very often, with a smile playing upon her lovely face, telling that her dreams were sweet and pleasant and making me even smile myself as 1 looked upon her, and wish that I was young, and innocent nsshe. " And then what horrid, horrid thoughts came crowding in upon my feverish brain. Ah!how I'd strugglo and fight with them, and 1 would weep and moan aloud. " hor oh! thought; yes, the thought would come, what if death should rol> me of her?her, my Mary ?all, all I loved on the wide earth? she, in whom wore concentrated all my affections, the only one inducing me still to drag on my weary life; what if the cold, strong, sure arm of death', should smite her down in nil her purity and loveliiftss? True, she would die some lime, as did her mother, as must I, as must all of us, hut should that moment he while I remained on earth if Oh, how I prayed to God to arrest death's dart till 1 was in the skies.? V''S, will you believe it, the clown?mark me, the clown prayed! The one, who, in fanciful attire, leaped and rode, joking and making merry in the ring?he, the one who wept beside the grave of his dear wife, prayed beside the cot ol his child- he prayed fyr her! " And then again, another and more dreadful vision came to me! to which the thought of death was nothing; should she, growing more beautiful and fascinating every hour? still -continue the object of my entire thought .? .! "i'.? - -/\l? linrl ! tJiA tlinnf/lit U'flQ . ClIJU UIU 11# oil!

Would that ere that moment T could see her a corpse before me. "Well, as I'd sit and gaze and muse on all this, and my thick coming fancy passed before me, sometimes she would wake; at first she was surpiiscd to find me there in tears, and sought to know the cause; and she would say, ' Dear father, do go to rest, for you look pale, very pale, yes do go, father, for your own little Mary asks you ; then I'd kiss and hid her good night, wishing her pleasant dreams, and leave her till I thought she was asleep again, and then to tuff I v erppniiifr kick to watch till mornitur. " Each da}', each moment, found me growing weaker and weaker. And, as 6he grew more and more fairand beautiful, the more aud more i tailed in strength and everything?everything but Jove to her?no abatement could there be in that while the life-blood coursed through my veins.
