'Tis not to have our life Mellowed and softened a A golden day's decline I we 'dreamed with sunset glow, 'Tis not to see the world As from a height with rapt prophetic eyes, And heart profoundly stirred; And weep, and feel the fullness of the past The years that are no more!

Constantinople, August 31,1807. When I" think*how I have been swindled by books of Oriental travel, I want a tourist "fpr breakfast'.— For- years and years I have dreamed of the wonders of the Turkish batk.; for years and years I have promised myself that I would yet enjoy one. Many and many a time, in fancy, 1 have lain in the marble bath, and breathed the slumbrous fragrance of Eastern spices that filled the air ; then passed through a wierd and complicated system of pulling and hauling and drenching and scrubbing by a gang of naked savages who loomed vast and vaguely through the steaming mists-like demons; then rested for a while on a divan fit-for a king : then passed throngh another complex ordeal, and one more fearful than the first • and finally, swathed in soft fabrics, was conveyed to a princely saloon and laid on a bed of eider down, where eunuchs, gorgeous of costume, fanned me while I drowsed and dreamed, or contentedly gazed at the rich hangings of the apartment, the soft carpets, the sumptuous furniture, the picture^ j and drank delicious coffee, smoked the soothing narghili, and dropped, at the last, into tranquil repose, lulled by sensuous odors from unseen censers, by the gentle influence of the narghili's Persian tobacco, and by the music of fountains that counterfeited the pattering of summer rain. That was the picture, just as I got it from incendiary books of travel. It was a poor, miserable fraud. The reality is no more like it than the Five Points are like the Garden of Eden. Thoy received me in a great court, paved with marble slabs; around it were broad galleries, one above another, carpeted with seedy matting, railed with unpainted balustrades, and furnished with huge, rickety 'ahairs, cushioned with rapty old mattrassea, indented by impressions left by the forms of nine successive generations of men who bad reposed upon them. The place was vast, naked, dreary ; its courts a barn, its galleries stalls for human horses. The cadaverous, half-nude, var- lets that served in the establishment had nothing of poetry in their appearance, nothisg ,of romance, nothing of oriental, splendor. They shed no entrancing odors—just the contrary. Their hungry eyes and their lank forms continually suggested one glaring, unsentimental fact—they wanted a "square meal." I went up inta'ane of the raoks and undressed. An unclean starveling wrapped a gaudy table-cloth about my loins and hung a white rag over my shouldeus. If I had had a tub then, it would have come natural to me to take in washing. I was, then conducted dewn stairs into the wet, slippery court, and the first thing that attracted my attention was my heels. My fall excited no comment. They expected it no doubt, It belonged in the list of softening, sensuous "Influences peculiar to this home of Eastern luxury. It was softening enough, certainly, but its application was not happy. They now gave me a pair of wooden clogs— benches in miniature, with leather straps over them to confine the feet (which they would have done, only I do not wear No, 13s). These things dangkrd-^ uncomfortably by the straps when I lifted up my feet, and came down in awkward and unexpected places when I put them on the floor again, and sometimes turned sideways and wrenched my ankles out of joint. However, it was all Orienntal luxury, and I did what I could to enjoy it. ' They put me in another part of the barn and laid me on a stuffy sort of pallet, which was not made of cloth of gold, or Persian shawls, but was merely the unpretending sort of thing I have seen in the negro quarters of Arkansas. There was nothing whatever in this dim marble prison but five more of these biers. It was a very solemn place. I expected that the spiced odors of Araba were going to steal over my senses now, but they didn't. A copper colored skeleton, with a "Skg around him, bronght me a glass decanter of water, with a lighted tobacco pipe in the top of it, and a pliant stem a yard long, with a brass mouth-piece to it. It was the famous " narghili" of the East—the thing the Grand Turk smokes in the pictures. This began to loox lixe luxury. I toox one blast at it, and it was sufficient. The smoKe all went down my throat. It came bacx in con- vulsive snorts through my nose. It had a vile taste, and the taste of A thousand infidel tongues that remained on the brass mouth-piece was viler still. I was getting discouraged. Whenever! seethe cross-legged Grand Turx smoKing his narghili, in pretended bliss, on the outside of a paper of Connecticut tobacco, I shall Know him for the shameless hutribeg he is. The prison was filled with hot air. When I had got warmed up sufficiently to prepare me for a still warmer temperature, they toox me where it was—into a marble room, wet, slippery and steamy, and laid me out on a raised platform in the centre. It was very warm. Presently my man sat me down by atanx of hot water, drenched me well, gloved his hand with a coarse mitten, and began to polish me all over with it. I began to smell disagreeably. The.more he polished the worse I smelt, It was alarming. I said' to him : " I perceive that I am pretty far gone. It is plain that I ought to be buried without any unnecessary delay. Perhaps you had better go after my friends at once, because the weather is warm, and I cannot 'Keep' long." He went on scrubbing, and paid no attention. I soon saw that he was reducing my size. He bore hard on his mitten, and from under it rolled little cylinders line maccaroni. It could not be dirt, for it was too white. He pared me down in this way for a long time. Finally I said, " It Is a tedious process- it will taxe hours to trim me to.the size you want me. I will wait—go and borrow a jacx-plane." He paid no attention at all. . After a while he brought a basin, some soap, and something that seemed to be the tail of a horse. He made up a prodigious quantity of soap suds, deluged me with them from head to foot without warning me to shut my eyes, and then swabbed me viciously with the horse-tail. Then be left me there, a statue of snowy lather, and. went away. When I got tired of waiting, I went and hunted him up. He was propped against the wall, in another room, asleep. I woke him. He was not disconcerted. He took me back and flooded me with exhausting hot water, then turbaned my head, swathed me with dry table-cloths, and conducted me to a latticed chicken -coop in one of -the galeries, and pointed to one of those Arkansas beds. I mounted.it, and vaguely expected the odors of Ara- by again. They did not come. The blank, unornamented coop had nothing about it of that oriental voluptuousness one reads of so much. It was more suggestive of the country hospi tal than anything else. The skinny servitor brought a narghili, and I got him to take it out again without wasting any time about it. Then he broughtthe world renewed Turkish coffee that poets have sung so rapturously for many generations, and I seized upon i t as the last hope that was left of iay old dreams of Eastern luxury. It was another swindle. Of all the unchristian beverages that ever past my lips, Turkish coffee is the worst. The cup is small, it is smeared with grounds • the coffee is black, thick, unsavory of smell, and execrable in taste. 8 T&e bottom of the cup has a muddy sediment in it half an inch deep.— ■This goes down your throat, and portions of it lodge by the way, and produce a tickling.aggravation that keeps you barking and coughing for an hour. Here endeth my experience of the celebrated Turkish, bath, and here also endeth my.dream of the bliss the mortal revels in who passes through it. It is a maligant,swindle. The man who enjoys it is qualified to enjoy anything •that is repulsive to sight or sense, and he that can invest it with the charm of poetry is able to do the same with anything else in the world that is tedious, and wretched, and dismal, and nasty. THE LOST POCKET-BOOK. Why is a minister like a locomotive' We have to look out for him when the bell rings. It was a cheerless afternoon. A biting, freezing wind drove the slowly drifting snow before it like a blinding mist; and the clouds hung so low as almost to touch the black roofs of the houses. " How desolate it is," Mrs. Halpine sighed, glancing out from her attic 'Window on the gloomy prospect below, as she smoothed and folded the garment she had just completed; "and the [cold's bitter. I don't like to send out Louisa, but there's not a lump of coal, or a dust of flour, and Willie must have that medicine. I'd go myself but—" " 0, mother, no I let me go—I don't mind if it is cold. I'll hurry back ;" and the little girl sprang up from her low seat beside the infant's cradle, and began to fasten on her faded cloak and hood. "Well, I suppose you must," the mother continued as she wrapped up the delicately embroidered garment. "You know the place ? Mr. Rawdon's, on tenth street—that brown-stone." " Yes, yes, mother I I know." " Well, dear, run fast, and keep yourself warm, and say to Mrs. Rawson that I'd have finished the work before, if Willie hadn't been so sick. Three dollars she owes me. You can call by the baker's and get a loaf or two. The child took the bundle and vanished out of sight down the dreary flight" of steps; while the mother turned hack, to the cradle, where the siak child lay.. He held out his little hand and moaned piteously. " Give me some tea, mama, I'm so dry." " Yes, darling, just as soon as Louise comes." * Her eyes filled with tears as she raised the little fellow to her bosom, clasping him closely to Keep him warm, for there was no fire in the stove, and the' desolate, attic room was very comfortless. Yet there had been a day when this same palefaced, meek eyed woman, satin a- luxurious chamber, with every comfort that heart could wish within her reach; and a doting husband's strong arm of love to encircle and protect her. But her husband was dead, lying unknown on some distant battlefield, and her riches had made themselves wings and flown away. Forlorn and friendless, sick at heart, and weary from incessant toil, she sat with her wailing babe upon her bosom, gazing out with hopeless eyes, upon the dismal scene beneath her attic window. - In the meanwhile, little Louise made her way through narrow bystreets, and squalid alleys into the most populous and' fashionable part of the city. The biting wind still continued to blow with a dreary, saddening wail, drifting the low leaden clouds, and the mist- like pnow. But she walked on bravely, anxl reached at last, Mrs. Rawdon's. A dazzling glow of light poured from the lofty windows, and sounds of music and merry-making floated out upon the frosty air. Mrs. Rawson was giving a grand party in honor of her eldest daughter's birth night. Louise crept up the marble steps, and pulled the bell. A footman in livery answered her timid summons. '■' Can I see Mrs. Bawdon, please, sir?" she asked. "See Mrs. Eawdon, indeed! and she in tne parlor in the very middle of the company ? Of cburse, you can't. He was closing the door, but Louise caught at his sleeve, and cried imploringly. " 0, sir, please- wait I Here's the work she wanted; Miss Violets frock, you know.. Mother promised it by to-night; do let me take it up to her." The matt hesitated a moment, and then turned back. '•Miss Violet's frock," he said ; "she wanted it, I know. I heard her fussing because it didn't come home. May be she'll see you.. I'll try anyhow. Come in here and wait." Louise followed him through the arched hall,' and past the glittering parlors, into a kind of ante-room adjoining the supper apartment." Here motioning her to a seat, he went in search of his mistress. But it was a full half hour before Mrs. Rawdon could disengage herself from her guests; and poor, little Louise, tired out with waiting, and benumbed with cold, was just on the point of bursting into tears, when the lady stepped into the room. - ■ " This is pretty- business, now isn't it 1" she began, as she received and unfolded the bundle that Louise proffered her. " I thought you promised to bring this yesterday ?" " Yes, ma'am ; but little Willie was so sick that mother couldn't sew."- "0, yes] that's always, the way— you've some excuse ready ; but I shan't trust you again, you may depend on it. Here Violet's been crying for an hour, and refused to come down because she was so disappointed about her dress. John, ring the bell for Jane to take it up to her. I must go back to the parlor now."- She was sweeping out again, her satin robes rustling after her; but Louise sprang up with a piteous cry. "O, ma'am! ; little brother's so ill, and must have his medicine ; please let me have the money!" " I can't to-night—I'm entirely out of change. You can call day after tomorrow.". But Louise was' not to be repulsed. She eaught the lady's had in both her little, frozen palms. One of the rings that adorned Mrs. Rawdon's soft fingers would have procured all the comforts her mother and little Willie needed. Some such thought flashed through the child's mind as she made this appeal. " O, madam ?" she said, her blue eyes full of imploring .entreaty, " you are rich and happy, and have all you want; but my little brother will die without medicine I I)o let me have the money," Mrs. Rawdon shooK her off impatiently. " I tell you I've no change. You must oall again. John, show her to the dpor I" The footman obeyed, and Louise soon found herself upon the marble steps, while the lofty door closed in her very face with a heartless slam. The wind howled more dismally than ever, and the keen, stinging sleet fell like a shower of shot. Louise descended the steps, and crossed over to the opposite sidewalk with a dull, aching pain at her heart, that almost took away her breath. How could she go back to her desolate home, and tell her poor 'mother that she had failed to collect her hard ..earned wages ; tell her that they were not able to buy even so much as a solitary loaf? Was it'right that others should have so much, while they lacked daily bread ? Just then something beneath her foot, soft and slippery,'almost threw her. to the pavement. Looking down, she saw a pocketbook. She caught it-up with a suppressed cryt and, thrusting it into her bosom, darted off atthe speed of an antelope. At last, out of breath and half beside herself -with excitement, she paused beneath a lamp post, and after glancing stealthily around her, drew the treasure from her bosom. It was large, thick, and heavy. Her fingers fluttered-nervously as she unclasped it; and when she caught sight of the green notes it contained, she uttered a cry of delight, and darted off again like something insane. Mother and Willie should have all they needed now. Just beyond the baker's shop, toward which she bent her steps a soldier met her. " Little girl," he said, arresting her flying steps, " you didn't fin da pocket- book as you came along did you?" Louise paused a single-instant, her heart fluttering like a frightened bird ; then, as a thought of her mother and Willie flashed through her mind, she answered. "No, sir 1" " Well, its gone, I suppose," and the soldier passed on; while Louise hurried ried away in the opposite direction. By the time she reached the baker's she was in a tremor from head to foot, and her cheeks seemed on fire; but she drew the pocketbook from its hiding-place, and standing outside the door, unclasped it, and took out a note. The shop was crowded with customers, .and she had to wait for her turn before she oould obtain what she wanted. Her"eyes wandered wistfully round the tempting shelves. She would buy so many loaves ; and even that frosted cake. They would have coal and flour. Why not ? The pocketbook was hers, she had found it. Still her hands trembled, and her cheeks burned. She glanced down at the note she held, and saw, with a start of horror, that it was for fifty dollars. What had she done 1 Robbed a man of his money—and he a soldier. Her father had been a soldier. With a sharp cry, clutching the pocket- _ book in one hand, and the fifty dollar bill ih the other, she darted from the shop, and down the snowy street. Just a square or two beyond the glittering mansion of ,Mrs. Rawdon she overtook the soldier. He was walking slowly- glancing from one side of the pavement.' to the other'with an anxious, despairing look on his face. Louise was at his side in an instant. " 0, sir I" panting for breath, her hood thrown back, her blue eyes wild and startled, and bright hair blown all about her flushed face. " I did find your pocket-book—here it is. I took this note out, but I couldn't spend it. Mother's almost starved, and little Willie will die without his medicine, but I can't steal I can't—I can't; take it back !" The soldier took the money from the half-frozen little hands that held it up to him; then lifting the child in his arms he smoothed back her tangled locks and look«d down into her pale, tear-stained little face with eager, startled eyes. Hiaswarthy cheek grew pale and his bearded -lips - began to tremble. " Louise ! Louise !" he said, his voice full of thrilling tenderness, " poor little darling, don't you know me" ?" The child looked up and then her cry of wild delight rang out clear and joyous. " 0, papa, papa! we thought you were dead I hut you've come back to us agakr'-!."- " Yes, darling!" his broad chest heaving with suppressed eagerness. "Where's your mother? Take me to her?" Louise sprang from his arms, and shot-off liket an arrow down the brilliant street through . the squalid alley* and darx by-lanes; arid the soldier followed her. Mrs. Halpine sat in her comfortless attic, hushing her sick child upon h,er bosom, " Mama, mama ! I'm so hungry! please give me some tea, the little' fellow moaned," clasping his hot arms about her neck. " Wait a moment, darling,just a moment longer." And the patient little one waited, and the cold, gray shadows settled down darker and darker; and the poor mother clasped the ohild closely to her bosom, dreaming of happy days gone by, and of the dear husband who had gone to his last, long home, with no tender hand to close his eyes. The shadows grew heavier and darker, the winds moaned dismally; the 'Concluded on Fourth Page.)
