JET SINGLE COPIES ONE CENT. THE FISHERMAN. ~ Fearlea# let him be whoee trust is in God " It was a* palm an evening as erer came from heaven; the skv and the earth were as tranquil ad if no storm from the one had ever disturbed the repose of the other; and even the ocean? that great highway of the world?lay as gentle as if its bosom had never betrayea?as if no traveller had ever sunk to death in its embrace The sun had gonedown. and the pensive twilight would have reigned over nature, bat for the moon, which rose in her fall-orbed beauty, the ?jueen of an illimitable world, to smile upon the goodly things of ours, and to give a radiance and a glory to ail she shone upon. It was an hoar and a scene that led the soul to the con templation ot Him who never ceases to watch over the works he had made, and whose protec ting care displays itself alike upon the solid laud and the trackless wastes or the deceitful #ea. On such an evening, a group was assembled arounl one of the fishermen's cottages. The habitation was built in the true spirit of the olden tune, when comfort was the principal ob ject of the proprietor. At either side of the door was scattered the lines, and nets, and bas kets. that betokened the calling of the owner, and the fisherman was taking his farewell for the night of his happy, loving family, who were bidding him *? God speed" on his voyage. A fin* old man was leaning his arms on the rail ing. and talking to an interesting girl, whose hand lay on the shoulder of a younger sister. The stout fisherman, dressed in his rough jerkin, and large boots, that reached far above the knees, was in the act of kissing a little cherub, who seemed half terrified at being elevated so high as his father's lips; while the wife and mother, with her infant nursling on her lap. was looking anxiously upon her husband as she breathed the parting blessing and the prayer for his safe return. A little noy, the miniature of his father in countenance and in dress, bear ing a huge boat-cloak across his shoulders, and the lantern that was to give light when the moon departed, completed the group, it we ex cept a noble Newfoundland dog. some steps in advance of the party, watching for the nod to commence his marrh for a kind of pier where the fisherman and hi? boy were to embark. " Good luck, good luck.*' exclaimed the old man; "good luck and safa home again, John; ye want naught more than God's blessing, and that ye may have for asking; but ye mav as well take mine too?God bless ye. and good bve to v?." l*he blessing was heartlv echoed bv his kind pnrtner and his children, and whistling .is he w?nt. with his boat-hook on his shoulder, his dog Neptune before, and his boy, following, he trudged along to the beach. With the earliest dawn of morning the fisher man s family were astir: the little girl was bus ily arranging their little parlor, while the younger was preparing their breakfast table, and the mother was spreading before the fire the oloths of her husband and her boy. An hoar passed. and she grew somewhat uneasy that he had remained abroad beyond the usual period of his return. Another hour had elap sed. when ?be said to her father, "Father, go oat to the hillock, and try to see his sail on the water; he seldom stay9 out so long when the ?ee is calm and the weather fair; my little boy. too, was not auite well last night, and this alone should hare hastened him home." The old man went forth, and one by one his grandchildren followed him. until the mother was left alone, rocking the cradle of her uncon scious babe. After the lapse of another hour, her daaghter entered, with uews that a neigh bor bad spoken to her father in the night, and that he certainly would be home soon '? God grant it ?' said she. and she spoke in a tone of deep anxiety. 41 Ho never was so long away but once, and that was when he saved the crew of the ship Mary, and then the whirl of the sinking vessel had well- nigh mide his grave" Again she stirred the fire, again arranged the clothes before it and tK>ured some hot water into the tea cups Still tne breakfast remain ed untouched The sun was now soaring to his meridian height, when on?e more the family assembled in their humble dwelling,?the prop of the whole was yet wanting They ?at down to a cheerless meal, the seats at either side of the wife remained vacant. The old man was the only individual who appeared to anticipate no evil, bat he hastily finished his breakfast, and went forth. The noon was rapidly passing, and the sun had already given token of the glory of his de parture. when the fisherman s wife, having lolled her infant to sleep, went herself to the hill that commanded an extensive view of the wi le spread ocean. All the little household soon assembled on the spot, but no boat was wen upon the waters?nothing that could give hope except the aspeet of the waves, which looked too placid to be dangerous. Their deep dread was no longer concealed ; and while the old man passed to and fro, look ing earnestly at brief intervals over the lonely sea, the mother and daughtor were sobbing audibly. " Fearless let him be. whose trust is in his God!" exclaimed the father. The sentence wad uttered involuntarily, but had its effect. *' Ah." sai 1 the mother, " he always trusted in God. and God will not forsake him now." " Do you remember. Jane," continued the old man, " bow often Providence was with me, amid the storm and the wreck, when help from loan was far ofl. an l would have been useless if near'" And they cheered and encouraged each other to hope for the best, but to submit to the decree of Heaven, whether it came as tho gentle dew to nourish, or a* the heavy rain to oppress. From that hillock, which overlooked the ocean, amended their mingled prayers that God would not leave them desolate. The fisherman?the object of their hopes and fears?had been very successful dnring the night, when, at daybreak, as he was preparing to return home, he remembered his promise to bring with him some sea-weed to manure the potato plot behind his cottage He was then close to rocks which were only diacernable at low water ; he pulled for thern. jumped ashore, fastened the nainter to the jutting part of a cliff, and took his boat-hook with him. He colleeted a sufficient auantity of the weed. bat. in his eagerness to ootain it, had wanderad from the landing place, when* he heard his boj halloing and exclaiming that the painter was loose. Ho rushed instantly toward the boat, which whs then several yards off; the boy was vainly en deavoring to use both oars, and Neptune, the -faithful dog. was running backward and for ward, howling fearfully, as if conscious of his master's danger?at one moment about to plunge into the waves to join him. and the next licking the face and bands of the child; as if he s*w that for him his protection was mo9t needed. The fisherman perceived at once the desper ate nature ot bis situation ; the tide was coming in rapidly, and his hope of escape was at an end, when he perceive-l that his boy. in his ef fort to use the oars, had let one of them fall overboard. Father, father." exclaimed the poor lad, " what shall I do ?" The boat was at this mo ment so far distant that his distracted lather could scarcely hear the words, but he called out to him as loud as he could to trust in God, father of the fatherless He then stood re ginned to the fate which awaited him, and watched the drifting boat that bore the child in teril from the fatal rocks He had offered up a rief prayer to the throne of mercy, when in an inatant light broke upon his mind, "Good God'" he exclaimed, " I may yet be saved?" With the energy of hope battling with despair he collected all the stones around him. and heaped thers rapidly upon the highest ledge of the rocks; It was indeed wonderful how he could have gathered so many in so short a time, but the Almighty gave strength to bis arms and h? laboring not for life merely, but for beings still dearer to him The tide came on. on. on, and soon obliged him to abandon his work. He then mounted the pile he had heaped, planted the boat-hook firmly in one of the crevices of the cliff, and prepared to ftrng jS'.e for exiiteiioe, but his heart failed him when he considered how slight was the possibil lty that the w.teri would not rise above his bead. Still he determined to do all he oould to preserve life The waves were not rough, and the boat-hook supported him. The awful moment ranidly approached; the water had reached his knees ; but he stood firmly and prayed that he might be preserved. f JD.'. iaiUand but more fearfully than if it had raged around its des med prey; soon it reached his waist, and he then prayed that it might eo no higher. On. on, on. it came, and his shoulders were covered hope died within him. and he thought of him self no longer but of those who were so dear to him his wife, his children and his father? it was for blessings on them that he then im plored Heaven Still, on, on on it came, and he was forced to raise his head to keep as long as possible trom death ; his reason was almost gone ; his breath grew feeble, his limbs chill; he panted, and his prayers became almost gurgling mur muw. The blood rushed to his head ; his eyo balls glared as if they would start from their Jk* r hls e^es with an effort, and thought for the last time on the home that would soon be so wretches!. Horrible image* him each swell of the sea seemed | as if the fiends were forcing him downwards, and the cry of the sea-bird was liko the veil over their victim. He was gasping, choking, for he had not strength to keep his head above the waves, every moment they were plashing upon him. aud each convulsive start that followed only aroused him to the consciousness, if con sciousness it could be called, that the next plunge would be bis last. Merciful powers! at that very moment, when : the strength and spirit ?f man had left him, and the cold shudder of death had come on, he i felt that the tide rose no higher. His eyes { opened, closed and a fearful laugh troubled ?k! I 7 ,eddie(1, in throat, and (the bubbles floated around his lips; but they rose no higher; that he knew; again and again was heaved a deep sob. as he drew in his breath, and gave it forth a new agony. A minute had passed since the salt sea had touched his lips; this was impossible if the tide still flowed; he could reason so much. IIo opened his eyes, and faintly murmured forth, ?? O God be merciful!? The flow of the ocean nad in ceased ; there he still stood, motionless; but praying and weeping?thinking of his beloved home, and hoping that his place there might not bo forever vacant. The waters in a short tune subsided, and he was enabled to stretch his chill limbs, and then to warm them by ex ercise. Soon the rock was left dry, and the fisherman knelt down upon that desolate spot I am<>ng the billows, and hid his face in his hands , and praised and blessed his Creator?bis Pre server ! : O ! it is the well known bark of his faithful dog that he heard above the waves ; in another moment the creature was licking his pale cheek JIe>w*9 8?veJ?he was saved?for his own boat had touched the shore, and his own boy was in bis arms. He had been drifted to the land, and had easily found those who had rowed hard tor the chance of saving his father'* life. -Now homeward, homeward !"? he exclaim u* " ,reward, homeward"' echoed the i child, and Neptune juin|>e<I and barked at the welcome sound. | j The fisherman's family were still supplicating Providence upon the hillock that overlooked the deep, when the old man started from his knees, and exclaimed. '? we are hoard' there is a speok upon the distant waters " ? Whore, where ?" was echoed by the group ? and he pointed out to what he hoped to be the absent boat They eagerly strained their eve* but could see nothing; in a few minutes, how a" perceived a sail; still it was impossi ble to t?. 1 the direction in which it? course lav ? Then wsls the agony of suspense , it Continued ' however, but a short time. a boat was evident ly advancing toward the shore ; in a few mo tuenta they could clearly perceive a man at the bow waving his hat above his head, and soon the well known baik of Neptune was borne to them by the breeze The family rushed to the extremity of the rude pier, the loud huzza of the fisherman wa? answered by the * welcome, welcome of his father, ar.d the almost inartic- I ulate '? thank God of his wife And now all was joy and happine** in the cottage where there had been so much wretch edness ; the fisherman, his bov and his do* were safe from the perils of the great deep; but he would return no answer to the many Ques tions as to what had detained him so long be yond the usual hour of his return. " Wait my wife said he. '? until we have dressed and re freshed ourselves, and you shall know all; but before we do cither, let us bless God for his mercy for out of great danger hath He pre served me." ' Never was there a more sincere or a more earnest prayer offered up to the Giver of all goodneas, than ascended from that humble dwelling. And they repeated the words which had given so much consolation in the morning God'" let h'm be wbose trust '8 iu his Moral Character ok tiik Fixxs, as de enhed by Bayard Taylor:-- So far as regards their moral character, the Finns have as little cause tor reproach as any other peoplo. We find them as universally honest and honorable in their dealiugs as the Northern Swedes, who I *re opt surpassed in the world, in this respect. I let their countenances express more cunning and reserve, and the virtue may be partly i negative one, resulting from that indolence which characterizes the Frigid and the Torid , roues. Tnus, also, notwithstanding physical ! signs which denote more ardent animal passion than their neighbors, they are equally chaste, una have as high a standard of sexual purity ; Illegitimate births are quite rare, and are looked upon as a lasting shame and disgrace to both parties. The. practice of '? bundling"' which, until recently, was very common among Finnish lover-, very seldom led to such results and their marriage speedilv removed the dis honor. Their manners, socially, in this respect are curiously contradictorv. Thus, while both sexes Ireely mingle in the bath, in a state of nature, while the women unhesitatingly scrub, rub and dry their husbands, brothers or male tnends. while the salutation for both sexes is an embrace with the right arm. a kiss is consid ered grossly immodest and improper. A Fin nish woman expressed the greatest astonish ment and horror, at hearing from Mr. Wolley j that it was a verv common thing in England for husband and wife to kisfl each other. *4 If mv husband were to attempt such a thing," said ?he, ?? I would beat him about the ears so that he should feel it tor a week." Vet in conver sation they are very plain and unreserved, though by no means gross. They acknowledge that such things as generation, gestation and parturition exist, and it may be that this very absence of mystery tends to keep chaste so ex citable and imaginative a race. How tiiit Bear Caveto have a Short Tail A .Norwegian fable satinfa tarily accouuta for Hi- short tail of the bear. The bear, it seem , w.ts oiicc met by a fox who carried a load of flsi,* and who. in answer to the question how he hail obtained then, replied that he had ciught them bv angling The Var expressed a desire to know an art so useful; when the fox informed hiui that he had only to make a hole in the he and insert J* J > I, IUUSt s,t0f> e"?"gh, and not mind if it hurt you a little, " ,a:d the friendly adviser, - for a negation of pai? l? a sure *)lf? ? you have a bite. Nevertheless when you have a strong bite, be sure you pull out." The credulous bear followed the instructions and kept his tail in ! the hole till it was frozen fast. When he pulled the eud of the tail came off; and hence the short ness of the appendage at the present day Frit ter's Magazine. irjr A letter from Munich, published in the Augsburg Gazette, in speaking of the poisoned bread at Ilonjj Kong, says : "Professor i.lebig has analysed the bread sent to him from Houg Kong, and has found it to con tain a quarter gramme of arsenic for every IIfly Jrammes of bread, or more than snt&cient to cause eath. The arsenic wan spread over the whole surface of the bread, which proved that the poi son had been mixed up with the dough when the . bread was made OFFICIAL. " Thkabcrt Departmb>t. March 12,1857.
