How fast the hours do run I
How Time doth ever speed his onward flight,
How hurriedly each day succeeds the night,
And how the setting sun
Doth hasten onward to his place again,
Affording light and heat to sinful man.
My life, too, runs as fast j
It is as fleeting as the (light of time
My sun of life dolh townrd the West decline i
Youth does not always last,
Nor manhood, nor old age. We spend our
In seeking earthly good, and find 'tis death.
There Is no living thing
Half large enough to satisfy tho soul
It struggles hard each day to reach the goal,
And ever tries Its wing
To soar to something which this earth ennt
For in the flesh it cannot live.
a. ' ; 1
Hark I 'tis the faithful clock, '
It strikes the hour of twelve. The year has
gone I . . ,
Another in its race Is hurrying on I
And yet we feci no shock,
No throes of agony when It expires, 1
Sealing the doom of all its strong desires.
O; would that men were wise,
Hint they would listen to the voice of Tlmo
Careening onward in his eourse sublime j
Yet ever as he flies, -Pointing
us mortals in his upward (light
To an eternity of day or night.
But men are mad, not wise ;
Men think that time will be eternity,
That they shall neither sick, nor older be,
And sacred Truth denplse,
'Till suddenly they find their race Is run,
Time ended, and eternity begun.
A Pet Lion In Prison.
Gerard, the celebrated lion hunter of
Algiers, relates the following anccdoto of
n pet lion named Hubert, which he caught
when a cub, and raised till ho was sent to
the public gardens menagerie, it) Paris.
Hubert was placed in the Jardin des
Plantes, where, 8omo time afterward,
(Jerard went to see hirn.
'lie was lying half asleep, gazing with
indifference on all the visitors, when sud
denly he raised his head, his eyes dilated,
a nervous twitching of the muscles of his
face and the agitation of his tail, showed
that the sight of the well-known uniform
had roused him. llo had recognized, tho
uniform, but had not yet identified his old
master. His eyes vaguely interrogated
this vaguely remembered form. Ccrard
thrust his hand into the cage. It was a
touching moment which followed. With
out taking his eye from Gerard, he ap
plied his nose to the outstretched hand,
and began to breathe deeply ; with every
breath his eye became more affectionate ;
and when Gerard said to him, "Well,
Hubert, my old soldier," he made a ter
rible bound against tho bars of his prison,
which trembled beneath his weight. My
friends, alarmed, pprung back, aud called
on me to do the same. Noble beast,
thou art terrible even in thy love !
'He was magnificent as he stood there
roaring with joy and rage. . His rough
tongue licked with joy the hand that I
abandoned to him. whilo with his enor
mous paws he tried to draw me gently to
him. No sooner did any one approach
the cage than he flew out iu frightful ex
pressions of anger, which changed into
calmness and caresses on their retreating
It is impossible for me to describe how
painful our parting was that day. Twen
ty times I was forced to return to re-assure
him that he would so) me ngain, and
each time that I moved out of siijht, he
made the place tremble with his bounds
and cri-, Poor Hubert! tlii visit, and
tho long ttle-a-ltle of subsequent visits,
made captivity a little less painful to him,
but the effect seemed to be injurious on the
whole. He drooped, aud the keener at
tributed it to these vjbits, which perhaps
imulo him languish for the rump nnd his
old d.iya of liberty. Ho died, lenviii!;
Gerard resolved to kill ns ninny linns n
ho could, but to rnpturo no more; death

preferable to a pulmonnry disease bred

niatk Hole of Calcutta.
There are many persons, no doubt, who
have never heard tho origin of this often
quoted passage. For them and others
who may have perhaps forgotten the sub
ject, we copy tho following article, which
tells the whole mournful story :
'Lord Clive, while a Colonel of the
British army, commenced his career as
minder of tho Uritish empire in India.
Full of honors and wealth, ho returned to
England ; but being defeated into Par-
ianient, in 1775, sailed, under the King's
command, again for India, the Company
appointing him to the Governorship of
Fort St. David. But the very day ho
stepped into the gubernatorial chair, ut
Madras, the Bengal Nabob took Calcutta.
Then came that chapter of unheard of
cruelty, familiar to every child who has
earned to read ' his story books. The
tragedy of the Black IUo occurred in
1759, jud a hundred years ago.
The dungeon was twenty feet square.
Midsummer heat was parching India.
The little garrison thought it ail a joke
wheu they were ordered to go in ; m to
refuse was to die, for Surajahul Dowlak's
orders must be oixyed ; prolonged suffer
ing was better than install death. They
entered, one hundrud aud forty-nix in all.
The door was closed, the small aperture
admitted neither light nor air. When
they began to exchange breaths tho sUirt-
ling truth. burst upon them. The air ul-
ready was almost putrid j they shrieked,
they yelled in mortal agony ; tbey scream
ed for water, and then killed each other
ever ih cup which was pasped through
the crating, while the poor prisoners wcr
liting ujkI squeezing each other's life
away gasping for air, for uter, for
anything that would relievo theiu of their
agony. 1 lie jailors laughed ami UanceJ
io pure delight, llohneil, the hightfel in
rank, offered the jailor heavy bribe; but
no, the Nabob was sleeping, and no one
dared to wake him. In' tho morning-
when tho debauch was slopt away, hJfr
dered the dungeon door to bo" openad, and
out sintered twenty-three) swollen duW
torted living corpses ! One hundred and
tweiity-threi' Were piled up -a putrefying
mans of men ; nil Khnpes and forms wcra
represented in th death-struggle. '.Th
English woman who survived was Sent (6
the lmrem of tho l'rinco of 1 Moorshoda
bml. Holineil was saved,' and tells lh
tale. Tho dead were burned om tha
spot, but tho harrowing picture' did not
move in the least tho gronito disposition
of the human tiger. TIio hbrrible deed
renched Clive, and tho celebrated batthi
of Plassey showed tho -inhuman Nabob
thnt it was a foolhardy thing to trifle with
tho feelings tif t Englishmen-!,' Tlwi sol
