More than Throe years afterwards during the War of 1812, a British armed lying at St Johns was boarded and in a dark night by a band of Yan Kee privateers the leaders of the expedition then bought the Mander and demanded his sword. Indignant and confounded Captain big shot asked the name of his captor. Lord bless Yon answered a familiar voice Don t Yoa know me i m Asa t.

Make yourself comfortable Captain and excuse me for a moment cause i be got to haul Down your Flag run up the stripes find work the vessel into dip arrested at Boston for stealing pork made the following defence from Ray youth upwards i have loved baked Beans i have a passion for t Liat mib Stantial dish that baffles All description. Without Beans i am miserable i with 1 leans i am Happy. Beans i want for break i want for dinner a id cold Beans for supper. A few. Day since my pork barrel was empty. We Tat was 1 to do i bad plenty of Beans but not a Pound of pork1. I was in despair and knew not what to do. If i missed my pork and Beans i should die and Whir in this Frame of mind i wandered through the streets until my eyes fell upon Clear and i have made a mess of it by taking it if i bad gone Clear i should Hare bad pork enough for my Beans for months. This is my Iel my it Odo of the last stories told about Drunken men wants confirmation. It is said that one of these in staggering around met with a Large Globe lamp with letters upon it. Mistaking it for the Moon be said Well i m stumped if somebody Saint stuck an advertisement on the Wuth. Seward to jertj8alhc the Albany evening journal pub Lishes extracts from the journal of or. Soward which will be read with inter est Jobu Sakim sep. 26.1850. I have mentioned already one Mon eatery or More in the holy land. The Early european christians conceived that there was great Merit in visiting by Way of pilgrimage the scenes of the sufferings of the Saviour but they found the whole country in the hands of ferocious and Savage enemies of the religion of the Cross. Travel could not be safely performed nor could entertainment be found. European Stran Gers and religious men founded Monas teries everywhere often strongly Forti fied As places of the pilgrims and of hospitality and these yet re main. They Are Catholic greek protestant and abyssinian and inasmuch As the dangers of travel still remain in Large districts there Are few taverns for the accommodation of europeans they Are the resort of the traveler of Tho pres ent Day. You Are received and lodged generally supplying your own provi Sions. They tarnish you Security and a place to eat and sleep. If you have any Peculiar claim to respect or consideration they furnish Yon everything else Grait piously. In All cases but All right minded persons on leaving them present a gift to the establishment equal to the Cost of the accommodations. These exceedingly useful Tut ions Ore located with Piona rever ence on the Sites of most memorable events in the life of the Savior and apostles and haying been so Early located they Are interesting Monu Manta. Palestine in its social condition presents other and monuments of the same character. You see a party of syrians or arabs at rest in their Camp or on their March and Yon have exactly before you the rest or the Progress of a party of persons in the same country two thousand years ago. Patriarchs women children Maidens amid swarms of camels asses and goats. Loathsome lepers meet you you enter or depart from the Gates of the City begging bread but there is no divine persons Here now to heal them. The Blind the lame the epileptic Are always in your Way soliciting Relief. Medical Aid or medi Cine that will afford Relief is expected by the sick at the hands of any person of condition who passes by. Yoa see two intimate friends meet or cover each other with Yon see a party at dinner or at supper. There is one dish which is always liquid. Each eats by dipping a sop into the common dish. So you see How rational and probable Are the histories of the betrayal of our lord by Judas. But i must on with my journal we left the Good monks of Kamlah at five o clock on thursday morning and through inconceivably crooked and narrow pathways emerged upon the Plain of Sharon. An hour or two sufficed to bring us into the mountains of Judea which separate that Plain from the Valley of Jordon and the dead sea. The ascent is Steep the mountains Are a mass or system irregular and almost unrelieved by valleys. In fact All of Palestine including Tho site of Jerusa Lem and the scenes of scripture history consists of these mountains except Tho Beautiful plan of Sharon which lies be tween them and the Mediterranean Tell weary hours we toiled in making our Way no those mountains to find to holy City the Summit of one we descended it Only to ascend another still higher and the roads often Sharp Steep Stone Stair ways which Only a trained animal can ascend or descend safety. Nor have Yon Ever seen any such Mountain scenes. Gordens Fields Trees plants and shrubs disappear Chalky rocks lie heaped on bears no House or habitation of Man or beast or verdure except Here and there a tuft of Brown dead Bushes or withered for want of water or sign of life except Here and there a Shepherd armed with his Reed and his dog and Bis flock of sheep and Routs which extract dome juice from be roots of this dwindled and stunted vegetation. Then once in a Long Way we find Aravine where water is detained during the dry season and hero Are Small Fields and gardens but the Gene ral and almost exclusive aspect of the scene is one of desert and desolation. We found a ruined tillage on a High Eminence bearing Tho name of Latro no. The legends of the christians say hat it took a name from the fact that t was the Homo of the malefactor who suffered death with the Saviour and was pardoned by him on the farther on i descended into the Valley of Jeremiah which is held to have been the Birthplace of the Prophet who most of achingly struck the chords of the hearts of his Earnest and devotional countrymen. Descending the next Mountain i found cares and seemingly tombs in a Hamlet which contains per haps half a dozen families but Tho ruins of Many habitations. This is the Village of Zamatha the birth Pascool Samuel and the place where he Recei Ved the Sublime Call to it of Ood and i almost fancied that f stood Over the Cave of the Witch of endow when Aho called up the dead at the entreaty my Saul. I walked through the Brook now All dried where David took the five pebbles to Supply the Ming with which to conquered the giant of Tho i did not refuse to believe when they told me i was now in the Valley where Abraham dwelt with a family and flocks and now on the sum Mit of the Mountain where the Sun woe stopped in his course at the command of Joshua to prolong the Battle which was to result in the Victory of the peo ple of Israel. It was a weary journey through a sad and Mournful land relieved by an occasional rest under the Shade of a Rock or a solitary Olive tree for Jeru Salem seemed to a a promised but unattainable when we reached at last at for o clock the sum Mit of a Hill higher than All we bad passed and right before me on the Rocky Plain at the distance of a mile stood the holy City. It was not the ancient Jerusalem not a vast metropol not even a mid Val City Tike borne but a modern built town of Small Cir Cuit enclosed with a Graceful military Wall and surmounted with a Citadel towers steeples and monuments Beautiful to look upon but disappointing All the conceits i bad formed regard to its aspect. Filled with veneration for it by its wonderful history and expect ing to find its sacred monuments every where speaking their own great explanations could not consent to enter it rashly and rudely i dismounted1 and Gat Down upon a Rock surrounded by tombs and contemplated the scenes i was about to enter under of the declining Sun. We dismissed one equipage and walked slowly on ing by half the City to find a Gate in Tho Wall. The Road like., Oil i had travelled was Only Al Camel s path Over Loose stones and fixed rocks no and Down but it length we found Tho Hole in the Wall turkish sentinels on guard and a narrow Low Street through the Middle of which along the Gutter we made our Way jostling now against horses asses camels turks arabs jews and christians All differ ing from each other in costume and address but All equally outre and bizarre while the voices cries disputes contentions of a crowded population added to the confusion of the scene. This was Christian hut it Street that no Christian of any civilized state own. A fairer town without than Jerusalem i never saw a Barer town within i Hope never to see. Bunco s and mixer s farms adjoined each other. Bizer had an unruly sheep which wag in the habit of getting into Brinee e Field. Bunco expostulated with Sizer several times and then told him if he did not keep his sheep at Home be would fix him so he would t jump any More fences. But bunco Boon found the sheep Back again so to caught Jim and with a knife severed urn cot Siclo or skin Jundt beyond the Gambrel Point and Between the main Cord and Rone and thrust the other Hind leg through the aperture and then put the sheep Back Over the Fence which went off. Hobbling on three logs r Sizer soon after discovered the Sod Light Bis sheep was int and he knew very Well who was the it Bat be concluded to take things coolly and await Amine suitable Opportunity to revenge himself. Presently bunco s old sow broke in o mixer s Field when to caught her and with a Sharp knife Cut her Mouth Al Roost from ear to ear and turned her rack when Banco discovered this he went great rage and demanded of him what be did that for. Sizer said upon my word neighbor bunco i did not do any such thing. Your old sow split her Mouth laughing at my sheep Standard. Adam Slonaker a number of years ago came to Huntingdon France ind seeing there for the first time a Lair of snuffers he asked to snuff the the Candle just then needed Nutten Iota and Adam with his thumb and Igor pinched off the Ennic and care Folly poked it into a Well now them a ii or deniable said Pren Tux that in America it takes three to make a she and a hired girl.

This contrast be two a amending and Bat been exemplified a Hundred times. Some years ago the messes. Hovey of Boston embarked in an extensive series of to produce an improved Strawberry it waa mid that they fruited Over of new seedlings and out of those they selected two remarkably Large and Fine varieties. Has any one Over heard of these being cultivated a Europe f on the other hand our nurserymen Are so eagerly on the watch for any new varieties of fruit that May be originated in Europe that when the Victoria currant was first produced Ibeme Dre. Parsons of Flushing paid for the first Bush which they could procure. How slow were the English i adopt ing from ibis Eon try the Sharp Bow for ships and especially in dispensing with the heavy Bowsprit on steamers 1 like the chinese they l6ok upon the americana As outside and like the of they ask can any Good thing come out of 3faz the comparative absence of this feeling was most strikingly shown by air. Stevens when to visited eng land with his fatuous yacht while Tho America was lying at Liverpool with the Challenge flying from her Mast head to sail against All the English yachts far or. Stevens noticed a Gaff on too of the English vessels which he thought was better than any other that be bad seen notwithstanding the extraordinary Citren stances of the Case and though he knew the at Tention of All England was upon Bis movements to immediately went to one of the ship Yards and ordered a Gaff like the on he bad observed and the America had that English Gaff at to.
