BY T. 8. ARTHUR. M I'm tired of going to school,'' said Herbert Allen to William Wheeler, the boy who sat next to him. \ I don't see any great use, for my part, In ntudying geome- try and navigation, surveying and mensu- ration, and a dosen other things that I am expected to learn. They'll never do me any good; I am not going to get toy living as a surve\or, or measurer, or sea- captain.\ How are yon going to get your living, Herbert?\ his young friend asked him m a very quiet tone, a» he looked np in Ms face. \ Why, I am going to learn a trade, or at least lather BHJS I am.\ \And so am I,\ replied William, u And yet my father wishes me to learn every thing that I can; for he assures me thai it'll be useful some time or other in my hfc.\ \ I am sure I can't see what use I'm ever going to make, as a sadlcr, of algebra and surveying.\ \Still if we can't see it Heibert, pci- haps our fathers can, tor they are older and wiser than we arc. And we should en- dea\ or to learn simply because they w ish us to, even if, in cveivthmg we are ev- pected to study, we. do not see cleaily the use.\ I can't feel so,\ Herbert replied, tossing,, his head, \ and I don*t believe that my iathcr sees anj more clearly than I do, the us* of all this.\ \ You are w rong to talk so,\ his friend said, in a seiioustone, \ I would not think as )ou do for the world.

I am President of a newly projected railroad, and we area- bout putting on the line a company of en- gineers, for the purpose of surveying and engineering, and as you studied these sci- ences I think, at school at the same time that I did, and, I suppose, have still a cor- rect knowledge of both, if so, I will nse my influence to have vou appointed sur- veyor. The engineer is already chosen, and at my desire will give you all requisite instructions until jou revive'your early knowledge of these matters. The salary will be one hundred dollars a month.\ A shadow still darker than that which before rested there, fell upon the face ot the mechanic. \Alas sir,\ said he, \I have not the slightest know ledge. It is true, I studied it, or rather pretended to study H, at school —but it made no permanent impression on my mind at the time. I saw no use in it then, and am now as ignorant of surveying as if I had never taken a lesson on the subject.\ \ I am very sorry, Mr. Allen,\ the mer- chant replied in real concern. \ If you were a good accountant, I might, perhaps get you into a store. What is your capa- city in that respect ?\ I ought to have been a good account- ant sir, for I studied mathematics long enough; but I took little interest in figures and now, although I was many months at school, pretended to study book-keeping, I am utterly incapable of taking charge of a sett of books.\ Such being the case, Mr. Allen, I really do not know what I can do with you.— But stay! I am about sending out an as- sorted cargo to Buenos Ayrcs, and thence round to Callao, and I want a man to go as a Supercargo, who can speak the Span- ish language. I remember that }ou and I studied Spanish together. Would you be willing to leave your family and go ?— The wages will be one hundred dollars a month.\ I\ have forgotten all my Spanish sir; I did not see the use of it while at school, and therefore, it made no impression on my mind.\ The merchant really concerned for the poor mechanic^gain thought of some way to serve him. At length he said, \I can think of but o*e thing *ha$,you can do, Mr. JOten, and\that will not ba.asja.ck bit- ter than your present employment. It is t service for which ordinary persons are mployed—that of chain carrying to the inrveyor on the proposed railroad cxpedi- k>n.\ \What are the wages sir!\ \Thirty-five dollars a month.\ \And found!\ « Certainly* u I will accept H, sir, •thankfully,\ he y \ How much can _ you earn it^aHnJit^t^ ''tmm^'//--'- : • : --: u .'s-\y';'*: 1 :.^:. : .. \ ^yamj^'^^^^^-^^^m^ *eeWlj iU <.•!..•(-. ..';•. .-i -. - -•'- ;\; '\ m Mi\&&4^w$&$o™m*^ ^'^^^wjr^^i'Ti-i '^ d - ^Si*^^S^^Sft^?W mfa+mH$Qg$&&tt-0mtf&fc p^o^ii^^m: *ijjM'&1*M* Si^SISWISw^ftS^ er, InjieiBg^ia'e c^pol^j^w^high: a position Q£^inf^h^,^elm^it:lia*e held), ^m£i^^^^^^-^'Z^ J ' : ^HJa&^|^^^|a^o^p^8|^ 'ana^fi^^r^l^^^sl^jthCTuf^tt swho^fl(|ic^^^^#r|t^^g^ ^||::^^^^^%it^i9>ihjSKl^!^jy .-• .*>•-%• -^'MJtwjgiQ&ti'zs?

The other priests, to c,loak their cowardice, joined in the accusation; and sentence of I death was passed on the undaunted friends, and amid a general murmur of disappro- bation. — The Rajah would not hear anything in their defence, and ordered them to be led to immediate\execution; but the execu- tioner had fled; ~and being of the blood royal, no inferior class could, agreeable to the inviolable law of Hindoostan, spill their Wood. , In this4ilcmma, the Rajah pretending to relent, caused it to be known that the one who would shoot three arrows at, and af- terwards behead the other, should receive a free pardon.

The Russians have given it the name of the'Orloff. The other has the form of an irregular prism, and is of the size and almost the length of a little fin- ger; it bears the name of the Shah, and }ts history is as follows: tt formerly belonged to the Sophis, and was one of two enormous diamonds which ornamented the throne of Nadir Shah, and which were designated by the Persians by the frames of *Sun of the Sea,\ and <• Moon of the MouirtaiW When Nadir was assassinated, his treasures were pil- lagoi and his precious 'stones divided among a few soldiers, Who carefully con cealed them. An Armenian named Shaf- ras resided at that period at Bnssora with his two brothers. One day #t Afighan came to him and offered for sale the large diamond the \ Moon of the Mountains,\ as well as an emerald, a ruby of fabulous size, asaphirc of finest water, called by the Persians the \Ejc of Allah,\ and number of other stones, for the whole of which he asked such a moderate sum, that Shafras suspected they had notbeen hon- estly come by, and told \him to call again as he had not the money in the house.— The iAfighan fearing Shafras was going to act with treachery towards him, left the place and could uot again be found, al- although the the three brothers made ev - cry seaich for him. Some years afterwards the elder brothei met the man at Bagdad whe to'd him he. had just sold all his precious stones Ibi 62,000 pistres and a pair of valuable horse Shafras had the residence of the purchaser, who was a Jew, pointed out to him, and he went to him and offered him double the price he paid for them, but he was refused The three brothers then agreed to mur- der the Jew and rob him oi his purchase, which they did and on the following day poisoned the Affglian,and threw both bod- ies into the l iver. A dispute soon after arrose between the brothers, as to the di- vision of the spoils, which terminated in Shafras getting rid of his two brothers b\ poison, after which he fled to Constanti- nople and thence to Holland, where he made known the riches he possessed, and offered them for sale to the different Courts of Europe. Catharine II. pro- posed to buy the \ Moon of the Moun- tains only, Shafras was requested to come to Rus- sia, and lie w as introducted to the Court Jeweler. The terms demanded by Shafres were letters of nobility, a life annuity of 10,000 roubles and 500,0000 rouble pay- able by equal installments once in ten years. Count Bapin who was then minis- ter, delayed the settlement of the bargain as long as possible, and in the mean time had the Armenian led into such extrava- gances that he fell into debt, and when the minister found that he had no means of paying what he owed he abruptly broke off the negociation. Shafras, ac- cording to the laws of the county could not leave until Iris debts shonkl^be paid, and the Court Jeweller prepared to take advantage of his embarassments and in tended that the diamond should fall into his hands, for a forth of its value. Shaf- ras, however, discovered the trap that had been laid for him, and disposing of some of the ICBS valuable stones among his coun- trymen, paid his debts, and disappeared. Agents were sent after him, who had even orders to assassinate and rob him, but he escaped them. Ten years after, while he wasatAstrach- an, renewed offers were made to him, but he refused to enter into any negociations unless the bargcin should be settled at Smyrna. Catharine accepted, and become the possessor of the diamond for letters of nobility, 700,000 roubles, and 10,000 pa- per roubles,, making together, about two rind a half millions of francs.
