A few tales were floating abo in the water, which on a seaman ripping one them up with his knife, were discovered to be fi cd with the most cosily French laces, at that tim« of immense value in England, On the bed, thi furniture of which was in a corresponding style of magnificence, was coiled up the attenuated body of an old man, his chin and body being in contact, and his arm wrapped round some bulky object, in an embrace, the convulsive force of which death had been unable to relax. The men turned the corpse, and having with some difficulty forced the stiffened limbs asunder, discovered that the o b ject of all this solicitude, which had been stronger than famine and the fear o f death, was a large bag filled with gold coin. Overjoyed as the seamen were, at their good fortune, the hideous grin which sat upon the features o f the corpse, whose dead fishj eye, dimly discovered in the dubious light, seemeci fixed with malign meaning upon those who had al length reft from him his dear-loved treasure, sc horrified even the hardy seamen, that it was not till they had removed the whole of the valuable ef­ fects into their own boat, and had pulled a cable’s length from the sinking sloop, that they began to congratulate each other on their prize, “A damn’d slippery sheet anchor the old un was made fast to, for ridjng out the death storm,” said one of the men—^“And it’s a slippery way that same has been fish’d to, or I ’m a seahorse,” remarked the old boat-steerer. “W h y so you are, Joe; a marine may see that without a tellcscope,” replied the man who had oken first. “W h y you don’t mean for to go for say that a free trader’s money ar’n’t as good another’s, and won’t melt into grog as well >m the protectii d had in despair engaged ii tion of a smuggler.

The circumstances which I arc about to record, arose o u t o f one of these ju v e - uiile rencontres ;—and there will be many—then fellow-students with the present hero and writer, now grave and reverend seignors in law, physic, and divinity—who will recognize the adventui one, that, during our time, boro away the distinguished honours. Frank Arundel, on his taking bis degree M . D., gave, as is usual, a feast to his friends,- where a quarrel having arisen between his dearest friend, Harry Hollyiak, and himself, they fought, and Harry was borne, to all apperance, li felcss from the field. Hollyoak was a lieutenant in His Majesty’s navy, had undei’s boyhood, and,ijid, to adddd lo thehe unhappyi nati of the ail'air, was betrothed to Frank’s sister, Hi '“\ ? a to a lo t un betrothed to Frank ’s > was the grand toast of the Westmori ilhs. The anguish of Arundel may I imagined under this miserable misfortune. For some time he would not leave the body, and persis­ ted in his intention of giving himself up to the authorities. A t last, however, he was prevailed on to fly, and after a succession of adventures, which it is unnecessary to relate, found himself on board the Labrador, a Greenland whale ship, in which he had en g a g e d h im s e lf as surgeon. Tim captain of the Labrador, by name Bellamy, was a vSin, shallow, overbearing man, who pos­ sessed neither the blulTgood humour of a seaman, nor the courtesy of a well bred landsman. H e pi* qued himself upon a certain peculiar manner, which be mistook for politeness, and which sat as ill upon Lisvulgar carcase as would a silk cloak upon the back of a scavenger. It was impossible for F rank to con­ ceal the contempt and disgust which the general conduct of the captain created. This, of course,. hut he with his oar, “ with a will 1 men, a long stroke a a steady; the ship is’n’t where she was half hour ago, and yon scud flying to the nor’east is no errand of good for ‘those who go down to the sea in ships, and do business on themighty waters.’ It’s my mind that yon dead old man’s grb done for nothing!” Profound silence followed this remark of the old iriner ; the men saw that the ship had drifted nsidcrably to leeward, and that the wind was again rising; they therefore stretched themiic-lves vigorously to their oars, and strove through the stormy waters with the energy of men whose rves are strong by sense of danger. They iched the ship, and were standing among their tnpanions, watching in silence when the little ;.sfl they had left would settle into the waves. “Yonder goes the Albatross on her last dive,”saii ■oico ill a foreign accent, as the stern of the littl craft burst out with a noise which was heard dis­ tinctly above the roar of the wakening tempest and plunging down head-foremost, she vanished from the view, “a lovelier sca-boat never gladdened a seaman’s eye, and a fleeter never walked over the waves !” The men turned suddenly round to the speaker, and saw that it w a s one of the rescued cre w who had uttered this characteristic elegy on his favored vessel. His tall form was bent from weakness, the tears streamed over his famine- furrowed cheeks, and dropped off his matted black beard, while he strained his eyes towards the spot where the agitated waters had closed over tho little sloop. The sympathising tars conveyed him to his destined berth, while old Joe walked aft. ition, a sm: lotland, wh( an English revc dangerous to keep the coast, whicl cruisers, the captain of the Albatross stood fairly out to sea, liopimg, by the till now unparalleled speed o f his vessel, soon to escape all pursuit. The revenue cutter, however, which held him ill chace, proved to be as fast as the Albatros.s; and as the latter vessel was kept before the wind, that being her favorite position for swiftness, they had got further into the open sea before they escaped from the cutter than either the boisterous nature of the weather, or the low state o f their provisions, ren­ dered at all desirable. The wind continued to rise until it blew a perfect hurricane, from the south-east, and the crew of the Albatross— “Aware that flight in such a sea Alone could rescue them,” verccompelled to drive before the tempest, with jnst IS much .canyas set as was sufficient to keep their raft awake upora the waters;—until on the third day, a tremendous sea striking her snapped off the rudder below its trunk, and sweeping with resist­ less force along the decks, bore away upon its bo­ som the captain and two of their best hands, wllO had been stationed at the wheel. Before they had time to ascertain Ihn extent of their calamity, a- nothcr sea following in the wake of its predeces­ sor, completely burfed the little vessel, and when it emerged quivering as in a mortal convulsii romanider of the seamen saw with horror ths the board, its ruins encumbei ther and more powerful means of making . each acquainted with each other’s character, and inm: lei soon found himself compelled to add ad- Arundel soon found himself compelled to miration of her mental power to the other sei ments which he entertained for his sweet coni]pan- ion.

But if Flora’s judgment sometimes erred, her heart nei or did; and this is the supreme excellence o f wt man. She gradually became more cheerful; a smile would now and then steal over her still pale cheek, and light up her blue eyes: and such was the witchery which this, the natural ej the Arabs and Turks on w'hom tlii been imposed, and whose religious code them to regard no disease as contagious, unless! accordance with the will of God; thov therefor considered the severe quarantine not only\ irreligious, liu t a lto g e t h e r s u p e rflu o u s , a n d conscq\uently have done everything in their power to evade its regula­ tions, either by”conccaling concealing the dead, bu>ving them S’d'S [J^o m the ^ e w ~ E n g la n d Earmer,^ b i r d k i l l i n g c o n d e m n e d .

Yet Arundel neither talked nor Ihoi r by a regular and cauti ;ad, than by allowing the presence of infected corpses in habited houses. Directions had also been given, requiring that all the sick should be visited by European ph}'sicians, in order to ascer­ tain whether the disease in each case was really the plague or some other malady. The enforcing ’this iiKTasuro, particularly with respect to the Turk­ ish women, produced considerable irritation on the minds of the people. The clergy interfered in the matter, and sent several petitions to Mehemet Alii, who returned this simple answer, that the relations of the deceased, who refused to allow them to be visited by European doctors, should not be forced to do so against their will; but in such cases the dead should be considered as victim s of the conta­ gion, and their friends would he subjected to the severity of the quarantine. In tho first instance, a strict watch was kept upon the houses suspected of having taken the infection ; but the cxanipli indria soon scontinued a consideration. It is the remark of common observation that our turds are becoming fewer from this periodical de­ struction.

Perhaps there \is nothing more calcu to stimulate hate in a little mind than such con­ strained respect as Bellamy paid lo Arundel. He hated him the more bitterly, because he could despise him.

From this time, the darkest schemes of treachery were cherished by the captain, who vowed in his heart that Arundel should not return home alive. Such was the state of matters on board the Labrador, when, after some days of stormy weather, having reached the latitude of 60 dg. north, and longitude 10 dg. west, they fell in with a small vessel in distress? The wind, fortunately, lulled a little at the time the crew of the Labrador perceived the wreck, per­ mitting them to send out boats : in one of which Arundel went, in order lo give his assistance if re­ quired. The scene which met his eyes, as he step­ ped on the deck of the shattered little vessel, was such as to freeze his very blood with horror. On the deck, in the after part o f the vessel, with her hands lashed lo a heavy spar, and an immense profusion of light hair, h alf veiling her naked bo­ som, lay the inanimate form of a female, about seventeen or eighteen years of age, A gaunt old mariner was stretched near her, who seemed to liavc been arrested by death in completing the dreadful purpose, which the position of the group sufficiently indicated. One huge,dark, bony hand, from which, famine seemed to have abstracted ev­ ery particle of flesh, was fastened on her shoulder —the harsh outline and horny skin of his hand and arm, contrasting strongly with the almost star­ ry radiance of the limb which it grasped, while the other hand clutched a large seaman’s knife, with a force that had caused the blood to spring from under the nails. Near them were kneeling (or reclining) three or four seamen, whose shrivel­ ed features, livid lips, and dim eyes, sh o w e d that they were in the last stage of famine. Whether from joy at their unexpected deliverance, or horror at the deed which the agonies of hunger had driv­ en them to perform, they remained fixed in the posture in which thi ing no sign of life blue lips, and the occ; iheir eyelids above their sunk; i One man was at the pump; h< ■one knee, his bare bony breast pressed for support against the pump-rail, and his features writhen into a convulsed idiotic smile. Another poor wretch sate apart, chewing a piece of canvas; there was a. terrific scowl upon his face, and his eyes gleam­ ed with that unearthly light which insanity alone produces. He had become a maniac from hunger! Arundel directing the men who accompanied liim, to assist the others, instantly unloosed the lashings which confined the female’s wrists, and tearing open her dress, pressed his hand in an ag­ ony of doubt and expectation to her heart. Its faint and irregular pulsations, showed that life still lingered in her frame. The old seaman was gone forever. A little wine and water w a s adminis­ tered to the sufferers, who were then with the greatest care lowered in the boat. As the vessel was evidently settling fast, and as it was of the first consequence to give immediate relief to the survi­ vors, no a tte n t io n could be p a id to th e fu n e r a l ob- ^CQuies of the old m a n ; but one of (he sailors iding a piece of tarpaulin round the body, and iiring it by a few turns of a rope to a rail, left icek the depths o f the sea with the gallant ip which he had loved so well in life, for a ! he woi For some time the ' the ship snug (for, t storm returned with tenfold fury at thattinie to the sight which hi cabin of the foundered sloop, but many a night- watch was spent afterwards in the Labrador in lis­ tening to the yarns of old Joe about the grand fur­ niture of thehed-cabin of the Albatross, and many a time the eyes which had looked death fearlessly 1 the face, amid stormy winds and waters, quailed t the old mariner’s description of the hideous grin 'hich despair and famine had carved on the fea­ tures of the old miser’s corpse. For some days the storm continued to rage with unabated fury, so that their only resource was to keep tho vessel before it, and as it blow from th e s o u th e a s t, th e y had reached the entrailCG of Davis’ Straits ere fine weather returned; thus tting it absolutely out o f the power of Captain llamy, even if his officers (whose wages depended chiefly on their success in the fishery) would have allowed him, to return and land the shipwrecked crew. It only remained for them therefore, to go the whole voyage. In the meantime the seamen ly obviouj;, cat ?lora as the first victim.

The old man who was found dead near the unfortunate girl with the knife in his grasp, had gathered to­ gether his dying energies to prevent this diabolical deed ; and, with a sentiment as noble as that of the Roman father of old, had been about to plunge his knife into her body, to save her from dishonor.

The old merchant had become sus­ pected by the French Government of conveying intelligence to the English court, and he had re­ ceived notice that the almost omniscient Fouche had his eyes upon him.

This is indeed a grave consideration winch we will not pursue in all the reflections to which it gives rise. The question of emancipation was eluded in the French Chamber by the friends of the planters insisting that if Prance determined to emancipate their slaves, it was necessary that Prance should do as England had done, pay the value of them. This settled the question, for the Chambers having had enough of indemnities for one session, could not brook iho thought even of another. The Duke de Broglie, President of the Council, was placed by this debate' in rather a singular position. H e is President of the French Abolition Society and yet as Minister liad to oppose any measure tending towards the promotion of the object of tliat Society. ■VYe collect from the debates, as facts of some interest, that the free colored men in the French colonies are the most numerous p ir i of the popu­ lation, that two thirds of the slaves belong lo them, that they own considerable landed pi-opci-iy, and are at the head of large mercantile establishments. —Alorning Courier and N.

Some of the Maine papers, where also the pro­ hibitions of small notes has obtained, openly an­ nounce that they will conlinue to receive and circu­ late such notes, in.spite of the law. The truth is, no law can be enforced—in this country especi­ ally—which is not in harmony with the general convenience, feelings, and interests of the people. The laws prohibiting the circulation of small notes, are in direct opposition to all of them, and the consequence is, they are, and will be, dead letters.
