POETRY._ Extract* [The following is an extract from the poem delivered by “Florence Percy5* at the recent Westbrook Commencement.] The fashion, common since men were men, Of crediting always with tongue ami pen All signal evils to womankind.— Irjdcar to masculine heart and mind. ’T was ever a whim of the stouter sex To lav their burdens on slenderer necks, Thus cowardly A lam hid from hlarae And a'l hii cran Hons have done the same. It soothes the conscience wiih healing balm 9 An<t sinro it pleases tin in, where s the ham.. Thu4 Helen i- blamed for * lie Trojan war, And age* load herwiili .corn thert-lor; ller Inuit was beau >•—a venial crime, Aot often censured in modern time, Never avoided or < ven dbc’auned, Seldom repented and sc.doiu b.Mined. Yet not for its sake, as in days of yore. Are bloodv battles on sea ami shore; For men, it seems, since the years ol old, Care less lor beauty and more lor gold. »Twas Helen's lault to be lightly won, But surely Paris the wrong begun; il li t had minded his own allairs, A sheph ‘inPs simple and p’.e want cares, Instead of paddling away to Greece And laying plans to destroy the peace Of the kind anil courteous Spartan king— (Surely a in st ungratclul Hung, His royal welcoming to repay By stealing his lovely w’le away !) Had lie stajed and tended his harmless sheep Winch browsed and nibbled on Ida’s sleep, Till his loiks were white and his eves were dim, Helen would never have troubled him. So worn ;n may credit the woes ol Troy Wholly to prtam’d headstrong bov, And om'plest justice may well decree One pin ing breath of apology, O »• helping word to the Pro id Lady Whose pride engulfed Stavorea.

Translation for the Press of “La Tour <lu Monde en Quartre-Vingts Jours” of Jutes Verne. CHAPTER XI. Passepartout occupied tlie same compart ment as his master, and a third traveler oc cupied the opposite corner. It was the brig adier geueral, Sir Francis Cromarty, one of the partners of Mr. F >gg during their voyage from Suez to India—who was going to rejoin his troops at Benares. Sir Francis Cromarty was tall, blond, and near fifty years of age. He had distinguished himself during the last revolt of the Sepoys. He deserved really the title of native, for since his youth he had lived in India, and made only' rare visits to his native land. He was a cultivated man, and could have given much information upon the customs, manners and history of this Hindoo country to Phileas Fogg, if he had inquired; but he asked no questions; he did not travel—he only described a circumference. He was a body running in a orbit around the terrestial globe, following the laws of rational mechanics. At that moment he was mental ly calculating the hours passed since his de parture from London, and he would have rubbed his hands with satisfaction if it had been in his nature to make a useless move ment. Sir Francis Cromarty could not help recognizing the originality of his trave’ing companion, though he had only studied him cards in hand ana between the lubbers. He asked himself if a human heart beat under this cold exterior, if Phileas Fogg had a soul sensible to the beauties of nature, or moral aspirations It was still a question to him. Of all originals that the brigadier had ever met, no one was comparable to this product of the exact sciencis. Phileas Fogg had not concealed from Sir Francis his project of a tour round the world, or the conditions under which he made it. The brigadier saw in this bet only an eccentricity without a useful end. At the rate the strange gentleman journeyed, he would make nothing for himself or any one else. Half an hour after leaving Bombay, the train, crossing the viaducts, had passed over the isle of Salcelte upon the continent. At Pauwell they entered the chain of the Wes tern Gathes—ranges of mountains, their base trap and basalt, and their highest summits covered with thick woods. From time to time Sir Francis and Mr. Fogg exchanged a few words. At this moment the brigadier, taking up the conversation, said “A few years ago you would have experienced at this place a delay which would probably have com promised your journey.” “Why so, S'r Francis ?” “Because the railroad terminated at the base of these mountains, and they could only be crossed in a palanquin or on the back of a pony, as far as the station of Kandallah, situ ated on the opposite slope.” “The delay could uot endanger my pro gramme in any way,” said Mr. Fogg. “I foresaw the possibility of certain obstacles.” “You risked also some delay in the adven tures of this servant,” added the brigadier. “The English government is extremely se vere, and with reason, on this kind of otfenc es. The religious customs of the Hindoo are carefully respected, aud if your servant hail been taken—” “Well, ifho had been taken, Sir Francis, he would have been condemned, he would have submitted to his punishment, he would have returned tranquilly to Europe—but I do not see how this affair could have delayed his master!” Aud there the conversation drop ped. During the night the train crossed the Gathes, passed to Nassik, and the next day, If 1st October, they crossed a country compar atively level, the territory of Kandeish. It was well cultivated and strewn with hamlets, above which the minaret of the pagoda re placed the steeple of the European church. Numerous little streams, tributaries of the Godavery, irrigated this fertile country. Pas separtout, awakening from bis long sleep, could not believe that be was crossing the Hindoo country in a train of the Great Pe ninsular Railway. It appeared lo him like a dream. It was real to him nevertheless. The locomotive, directed by the arm of an Eng lish engineer, and fed by English coal, threw its smoke over plantations of cotton, coffee, nutmegs, peppers and cloves. Its vapor curl ed in spirals among groups of palm trees, between which were seen picturesque bunga lows, and some marvellous temples adorned with the fanciful ornaments of Indian archi tecture. Then vast plains, extending as far as the eye could see; jungles haunted by ser pents and tigers; forests broken only by the line of the road; yet inhabited by elephants, who walched with passive eyes the passing of the noisy train. During the morning, beyond the station of Malligum, the travelers crossed the fatal country which had been so often stained with blood by the followers of the goddess Kali. It was in this territory that Feringhea, the chief of the Thugs, exercised his power. These assassins, united in a secret associa tion, strangled, in honor of the Goddess of Death, victims of all ages, without shedding blood. The English government has been able to restrain these murderers in a great de graa, but the fearful association is still active and powerful. At half past twelve the train stopped at the station of Burliampour, and Passepartout purchased there a pair of san dals, ornamented with false pearls, of which he was very proud. The travelers breakfast ed very quickly, and left for the station of As senghur; after having followed for a little dis tance the course of the Tapty river, which flows into the gulf of Cambaye aear Surat. Towards evening they entered the defiles of the mountains of Sut pour, which separate the territory of Kandeish from Bundelkund. The next day, in answer to a question of Sir Francis Cromarty, Passepartout, consult ing his watch, replied that it was theee o’ciock in tlie morning, This lamous watch, always regulated by tlie meridian of Greenwich 77 degrees west, had lost four hours already* Sir Francis corrected the hour—to which he made the same reply that he had before made to Fix. He endeavored to make him compre hend that he must regulate his watch at each new meridian, since, as he traveled towards the east, to meet the sun, tlie days were short er by four minutes for every degree they pass ed. It was useless; whether the foolish ser vant understood, or not, the words of the brigadier general, he obstinately refused to advance his watch, and kept it invariably at the London time. It was an innocent mania and injured no one. *«.v vigui, V CIUUJV 111 lilt* HUM IIJIJ”.

He did not dare to look at hi* master. “Sir Francis,” said Mr. Fogg, calmly, “we will go to seek some means of conveyance to Allahabad.” “Mr. Fogg, here is a delay absolutely prej udicial to your interests “No, Sir Francis, it was forseen.” “What! you know that the way—” “Not at all, bnt I kuew that some obsta cles might arise sooner or later in my route. Nothing is yet compromised; I have two days at my disposal. The steamer leaves Hong Kong at noon the 25th; it is only the 22d, we shall arrive in time.” There was nothing to bo said to a reply made with so much assurance. The greater part of the passengers knew of the interruption, and, on leaving the cars, secured whatever vehicles they could And; palanquins, ponies, chariots, resembling traveling pagodas, zebras, &c., &c. Mr, Fogg and Sir Francis, after searching all through the village, returned unsuceess “I shall go on foot,” said Mr. Fogg. Pas separtout, who just then rejoined his master, made a significant grimace, thinking of his magnificent, but useless, sandals. Fortu nately he had also been on the lookout, and, hesitating a little, said: “Monsieur, I think I have found a means of transport,” “What?” •an eiepuam,: an eiepnant wnicu oeiongs to a native, not abundred steps from here.” “Let us go and see the elephant,” replied Mr. Fogg. Five minutes later, they reached the hut of the Indiau. Mr. Fogg asked him if he would let the elephant, but the native re fused. He oftere 1 him an enormous sum, ten pounds a day, then twenty pounds, then forty, but he refused, at any price. Phileas Fogg, without manifesting any interest, pro posed then to purchase the elephant ot the ative, and ottered liwn 1000 pounds. The native surrendered. The purchase made lie sougld a guide; a young intelligent Parsee ottered his services, and was accepted, Mr. Fogg promising him a large reward. The elephant was taken out and equipped with out delay. The Parsee knew perfectly the trade of elephant driver. He covered his back with a sort of saddle, and placed on each side two baskets. Phileas Fogg paid the native in bank notes taken' from the fa mous bag; then he ottered conveyance to Sir Francis Cromarty, to the station at Allaha bad. He accepted ; one traveler more could not fatigue this gigantic animal. Food was purchased at Kholby. Sir Francis Cromar ty, took his place in one of the baskets, Phil eas Fogg in the other. Passepartout astride on the saddle, between his master and tin brigadier. The Parsee mounted upon the neck of the elephant, and at nine o’clock, the animal, leaving the town, plunged quickly into a thick forest of palm trees. CHAPTER XII. The guide, in order to abridge the distance to be accomplished, left upon the right, the unfinished road bed. The road followed the win lings of the Vindhias mountains, aud Mr. Fogg wished to take the most direct, and shortest route. The Parsee, very familiar with the roads and paths of the country, pretended to gain 20 miles, in cutting across the forest, and they trusted his guidance. Phileas Fogg and Sir F’rancis Cromarty, bur ied almost to their necks in their panniers, were well shaken up by the rapid trot of the elephant. But they boie the situation with the most Brittanic phlegm, talking very lit tle, and scarcely seeing each other. Passe partout, mounted on the back of the beast, was subjected to blows aud counter blows; now thrown upon the neck, and then back upon the croup, he bounded like a clown on a springing board. But he laughed and joked in the midst of his somersaults; and Irom time to time drew from his bag some lumps of sugar, which the intelligent animal took with the end of his frunk, without inter rupting his regular march. After two hours ot travel the guide halted, to give the elephant an hour of rest, who de voured the branches and shrubs, after having slaked his thirst at a neighboring spring. Sir Francis did not complain of the halt, he was bruised. Phileas Fogg appeared as com posed as if he had just left his bed. “Is he iron?" said the brigadier, regarding him with admiration. “Wrought iron!” answered Passepartout, who was preparing a quick breakfast. At midday, the guide gave the signal for departure. The country soon took a very wild aspect; to great forests succeeded hedges of tamarinds and palmettos; then vast barren plains, bristling w ith poor shrubi, and strewn with great blocks of syenites. All this part of the high Bnndelkund, very little frequent ed by travelers, is inhabited by a fanatical poplation, hardened in the most terrible prac tices of the Hindoo religion. The English government has not been able to establish its authority over this territory, governed by Rajahs, and it is difficult to reach them in their inaccessible retreats of the Vindhia. They saw many hands of ferocious Indians, but the Parsee avoided them as much as pos sible, believing them dangerous traveling com panions. At eight o’clock in the evening,the principal chain of the Vindhias had been crossed, and the travelers halted at the foot of the south ern slope at a deserted bungalow. They had traveled 25 miles, one half the distance to Allahabad. The night was cold; the Parsee lighted a fire of dry branches, in the hut; the supper was made of the provisions purchased at Kliolly. The travelers, worn out with fa tigue, ate very little The conversation, which commenced with some broken phrases, ended soon in sound sleep. The guide watch ed near the elephant, who slept, leaning against the trunk of a great tree. Sir Francis slept soundly, as a brave soldier overcome with fatigue. Passepartout, in his troubled sleep begaE again in dreams the somersaults of the day. As for Mr. F'ogg, he reposed a3 peacefully as if he had been in his mansion in Saville Row. At six in the morning, they commenced again their journey. The guide hoped tj reach the station at Allahabad the same eve ning. Phileas F'ogg wouid lose only a part of the 48 hours, gained since his departure from London. They descended the last slope of the Vindhias, and the elephant took again Ins rapid trot. Near mid-day the guide pass ed the town of Kallinger, situated upon the Cani, one of the tributaries ot the Gauges; he avoided all inhabited places, knowing that they were safer in the desert country. The sation at Allahabad was only twelve miles to the northeast. They halted under a cluster of palm trees, of which the fruit, wholesome as bread, and rich as cream (say travellers,) was greatly appreciated. At two o'clock, the guide entered pnto a thick forest of many mile’s extent, preferiiig to travel under the shelter of the trees. Thus far they had en countered nothing disagreeable, and the jour ney seemed about to end without accident, when the elephant gave some signs of uneasi ness, and suddenly halted. It was then four o’clock. “What is the matter?” asked Sir Francis Cromarty, raising his head above the pan nier. “I do not know officerreplied the Par see listening to the confused murmur, which ran through the thick branches. Some instants later, this murmur became more distinct; one would have said it was a concert of human voices and brass instru ments. The Parsee jumped to the ground, fastened the elephant to a tree, and hid him self in the thick underwood. A few moments after, he returned, “saying it is a Brahmin processsion, coming this way. If it is possi ble we must avoid being seen.” He unfast ened the animal, led him into a thicket, and advised the travelers not to dismount. He held himsell ready to spring to his seat, if flight became necessary; but he thought the procession might pass without perceiving them,the foliage sheltered them so completely. The discordant noise of voices and instru ments diew near; monotonous chants min gled with the sound of cymbals and drums. Soon the head ol the procession appeared un der the trees, not fifty steps from the post oc cupied by Mr. F’ogg and his companions, and they distinguished easily,through the branch es. the curious personnel of this religious cer emony. In the first line, came the priests, wearing mitres, aud clothed in long embroid ered robes. They were surrounded |by men women and children, who sang a sort of fu ner.il psalm, interrupted at intervals bv blows on the tomtom and symbais. Behind them on a chariot with large wheels, of which the spokes and hub appeared like intertwining serpents, came a hideous statue, drawn by our zebras, richly caparisoned. This statue had four arms; the body painted dark red; haggard eyes; and dishevelled hair; the tongue extended and the lips tinted with henna and betel. She wore a necklace of skulls, and around her waist a belt of amputated hands. Sir Francis recognized the statue “The god dess Kali” he murmured, “the goddess of Love and Death.” “Of Death, 1 understand but of Love; no!" —said Passepartout, iu a low voice, “The ugly old woman.” The Parsee made signs to him to hold his tongue. Around the statue, a group of old fakirs, striped with bands of ocher, danced, cutting themselves with cross-like incisions, which allowed the blood to escape drop by drop; senseless fanatics, who, in great Hin doo ceremonies, threw themselves under the Car of Juggernaut. Behind them followed some Brahmins, in all the richness of orien tal costume, dragging a woman who could scarcely support herself. She was young, white as an European; her neck, head, ears, shoulders, arms and toes loaded with jewels, necklaces, bracelets, clasps, and rings. A tunic, embroidered in gold, covered with a thin muslin robe, showe I the outlines of her form. Behind the young woman—violent contrast—some armed guards, with naked sa bres in the belt, and long embossed pistols, carried a corpse on a palanquin. It was the body of an old man,dressed in the rich robes of a rajah, wearing as in life, the turban embroi dered with pearls, a robe of silk and gold, a belt ot cashmere ornamented with diamonds, ami the magnificent arms of an Indian prince. Then some musicians, aud a rear-guard of fanatics,whose loud cries rose above the stun ning noise of the instruments, closed the pro cession. Sir Francis Cromarty watched this pomp, with an air singularly sad, and turning towards the guide, said, “It is a suttee.” . ‘•The Parsee made an affirmative sign, and placed ids his fingers on his lips. The long procession passed slowly under the trees, and soon the last ranks disappeared in the depths of the forest. Little by little the chants died away, there were still some shrieks in the dis tance, but soon all this tumult was succeeded by a profound silence. Phueas Fogg had heard the word spoken by Sir Francis, and as soon as the procession disappeared: “What is a suttee?” asked he. “A suttee, Mr. Fogg, is a human s crifice, but a voluntary one. The woman that you saw, will be burned to-morrow at day break.” “And the body ?” asked Mr. Fogg. “It is that of the prince, her husband,” re plied the guide, “an independant rajah of Bundelkund. now! answered Mr. r ogg, ms voice not expressing the least emotion, “these barbar ous customs exist yet in India ami the Eng lish cannot destroy them ?” “In the largest part of the country.these cus toms no lohger exist: but we have no influ ence in this savage wilderness, particularly in this territory of Bundelkund. All the north erly slope of the Vindhias is the theatre of incessant murder, and pillage.” “Poor woman!” murmured Passepartout, “to be burned alive.” “If she were not, you could not believe to what a miserable condition she would be re duced by her relatives. They would cut her hair, almost starve her; she would be consid ered unclean, and allowed to die like a dog. The prospect of such a frightful existence compels the unfortunates to sacrifice them selves, oftener than love or religious fervor.” Sometimes nevertheless the sacrifice is volun tary, and the energetic intervention of gov ernment is necessary to prevent it.” During the conversation, the guide shook his head,and when it was finished said, “The sacrifice which takes place to-morrow, is not voluntary.” “How do you know;” asked Sir Francis. “It is a history that every one knows, in Bundelkund,” replied the guide.. “But this unfortunate one made no resist ance,” said Sir Francis. “Because they have intoxicated her with the fumes of hemp and opium.” ‘Where do they conduct her?” “To the pagoda of Pillaji, two miles from here. She will pass the night there awaiting the hour of sacrifice.” “And this sacrifice will take place?” “To-morrow, at day break.” “After this reply, the guide led the ele phant out from liis shelter, and sprung upon his neck; but just as he gave the signal for moving, Mr, Fogg stopped him, and address ing Sir Francis, said, “Let us save the woman,” “Save the woman; Mr. Fogg!” cried the brigadier general. “I am yet twelve hours in advance, I can use it.” “Well! well! you are a man with a heart,” saiil Sir Francs. “Occasionally when I have the time,” an swered Mr. Fogg, quietly.

It is acknowl edged by many prominent physicians to be the most reliable preparation ever in troduced for the relief and cure of all Lung complaints, and is offered to the public, sanctioned by the experience of over forty years. When resorted to in season it sel dom fails to effect a speedy cure in the most severe cases of Coughs, Bronchitis, Croup, Whooping Cough, Influenza, Asthma, Colds, Sore Throat, Pains or Sore ness in the Chest and-Side, Liver Complaint, Bleeding at the Lungs, &c.
