On motion, the Board adjourned am : die. 1 THE LEPERS 1.7 JERUSALEM Tn my rambles about Jerusalem I passed on several occasions through th* quarter of the lepers. Apart from the! interests attached to this unfortunate class of beings (arising from the frequent allusion made to them in Scripture,) there is much in their appearance and mode of life to attract the attention a:,d enlist the sympathy of the stranger. Dirt and disease go revolthigiy together) here; jaunt Cuniue stalks through the &4Xcts; ft constant cry of uuflering i swells upon the dead air, mJ sin broods] elarkly over the ruia in that gloomy i!I fited .3pot. Wasted fbr.ns sit ui iiiei door ways, ficcs covered with old white sa;U anl sightle-is eyes are turned up wards. skeleton arms dis orted and in fected wih the lavages of leprosy are oat.sirctched from tl.e foul moving mass; and a howl of the stricken for alms : alms, oh, stranger, for the love of God ! alms to feed the inexorable destroyer ! alms to prolong this dreary and hopeless misery! 1 Look upon it, stranger, you who walk forth in all your pride and strength, and breathe the fresh air of heaven ; you who have never known what it is to be shunned by your fellow man as a thing unclean and accursed; you who deem yourself unblest with all the blessings that Cod has given you upon earth ; look upon it and learn that there is a misery above all that you have conceived in your gloomiest hours?a misery that can be endured; learn that even a leper, with death gnawing in his vitals and unceas ing toitures in his blood, cast out from the society of his fellow man, forbidden to touch in friendship or affection the hand of the untainted, still struggles for life, and deems each hour precious that keeps him from the grave. The quarter of the lepers is a sad and impressive place. By the laws of the land which have existed from JSciiptural times, they are isolated from all actual contact with their fellow men, yet there seems to be no prohibition to their going oat behind the walls of Jerusalem and begging by the road aide. Near the gate of Zion, on the way to Bethlehem. I saw many of them sitting on rocks, hideous faces uncovered, thrusting forth their scaly hands for alms. Their hats are rudely constructed of earth and stone, seldom with more than one apartment, and this so filthy and loathsome that it seems unfit for swine to dwell in. Heie they lire and propagate, whole faxmlie; together without distinction of sex; and their dreadful malady is perpetuated from generation to generation, and the groans of the aged and dying are min gled with the feeble wail of the yourg that are brought forth branded lor a life of misery. Strange and mournful thoughts arise in the contemplation of the sad condi tion and probable destiny of these ill fated beings. Among so many, there must be some in whose breast the power of trie love is implanted : love of wemer. | in its purest sense, for offspring, for all the en<learmcnts of domestic life which the untainted are capable of feeling ; ) et do ?med never to exercise the affec tions without perpetuating the curse; some, too, in whom there are hidden powt i ? of mind unknown save to them belvis : ambition that corrodes with un availing aspiration a thirst for actiou that burns unceasingly, yet never can be | assuaged; all the ruling passions that are implanted in man for great and noble purjofcs: never to give one moment's pleasure unrniwd with perpetual gloom of that curse which dwells in their blood. As I plodded my way for the last time through this den of sickening sights, a vision of human misery was impressed upon my mind that lime cannot efface. 1 passed when the rays of the san were cold and the lights were dim ; and there came out from the reeking hovels lep rous men, gaunt with f&mine, and they bared their hideous bodies and bowleg like wild beasts; and women held out their loathsome and accursed babes, and tore away the rags that covered them, and pointing to the shapeless mass shrieked for alms. All was disease, sin and sorrow where cver I went; and as I passed on, unable to relieve the thousandth part of misery, moans of despair and howling curses fol lowed me, and the lepers crawled back into their hovels to rot in their filth and die when God willed.?Cor. Nat. lntd Lt.eitcer. Valextixes ix Church.?Mr. Irvin, vestry of St. Paul's church, had hisatten lion called during the service, on Sunda) night last, to some disorder in the color ed gallery, and having hurried up to as certain the cause, discovered a black fel low named Greene Smith, with a valen tine in his hand, which he paraded about with considerable clamor, while his back was turned to the preacher, the better to conceal his improper actions. Mr. Ir vin took him by the collar, led him to the street door, and pushed him out, admin isteiing a few kicks to him as he left. in less than two minutes afterwards a rock came whizzing through one of the windows fronting on Grace street; and Mr. Irvin suspecting Smith to have thrown it, went up to the colored gallery and ascertained from others, that were seated in the same pew with him, where he resided. lie immediately repaired to the fellow's residence, and waiting for a short time at the door to hear what was passing inside, heard other parties rebuke the rascal severely for his conduct in church. He thereupon rushed in and ar rested the fellow, He was brought before the Mayor yesterday, and was ordered twenty five. Information having reach ed his honor that he had left the Slate pome time since, and returned after an absence of some months, he ordered him to be detained for examination.?Rich. Whig. Coughing Down.?One evening, when Mr. Hunt was speaking in the House of Commons, an honorable member wa3 unusually persevering in his efl.*rts k) cough him down. Mr. Hunt cured tne * honorable gentleman of his coagh by one short sentence, which, delivered as it was infinite dramatic effect, created un usual laughter. Mr. Hunt put his hand into his pantaloon? pockct, and after fumbling about a few poconds, said, with the utmost imaginable coolness, that he v. as 44 extremely sorry to find that he had not a few lor.enges in his pocket for the benefit of the honorable member vho sccuiei to be so distressed with a c>ugh, bat he could assure him he wouUl provids some for him by the next night." l ever did doctor prescribe more tfTrc t ial!y ; noi only did Mr Hunt s tormen tor from that moment get rid of Lis cough, but it never returned, at least while Mr. Hunt was speaking. Singular Fondness of a Cow for Children.?We ate informed by reliable means, that a very domestic and fevered cow of Mr. Clark, of Spnngwells, accom plished her death a day or two since, in a most singular manner. The cow was very gentle and would suSTer the children to play about her with the utmost pa tience, and would often come to the door as if in search of company. One day last week she came to the door bat the weather was too cold for the children to venture out, and therefore she was left alone. The only thing which attracted her attention was a common corn broom. At the brush of this she began chewing, and after sturdy labor of her jaws, suc ceeded in swallowing it. Bui unfortu nately the handle was too hard for her teeth and too long for her stomach, and so she could neither spit it out nor swal low it down. A butcher was called and the unfortunate brcom-eater was made beef in short order. (C7* The mortality of Dublin has in creased at an alarming rate, the deaths in one week being nearly 400 out of 4 population of 260,000.
