From the French. Many years since; when I was a young man about twenty years of age, I used very frequently to spend a Sunday ivilh my mother, who resided at Versailles, this being ’he only day of the week on which I could leave Paris. I generally walked aslarasth e Barrier, and thence I took a seat m one o f the public carriages to my mother’s house. When I happen­ ed to be too early lor the dilligence, I used to stop and converse with a beggar, whose name was Anthony, and who regu­ larly took his station at the Barrier De Passey, where in a loud voice, be solicited alms from every one who passed, vvith an air of perseverance that was really as­ tonishing. I generally gave him a trifle without enquiring whether he deserved it or not,— Partly because I had got into the habit of doing so, and partly to get rid of his importunities. One day in summer as I waited for the dilligence, I found An­ thony at his usual post, exerting his lungs, and bawling incessantly his accustomed form of petition— ‘For the love of heaven, bestow your alms on a poor man— Mes­ sieurs, Medames, tbe smallest trifle will be gratefully received.’ While Anthony was in this manner pouring his exclama­ tions into the ears of every one who came within the reach ofhis voice, a middle ag­ ed man, of lespectable parents, joined us. He had a pleasant expression of countenance, was very well dressed, and it might be seen at the first glance that he was a man ot good cir’.umstances.— Here was a fit subject for the beggar, who quickly made his advances, proclaim­ ing in a loud voice his poverty, and solic­ iting relief. ‘ You need not be a beggar unless you please,’ replied the gentleman, when you can have an income often thou­ sand crowns.’ You are pleased tu jest sir, replied Anthony. * By no meane,* said the gentleman. ‘ I never was more serious in my life. Listen to me, my friend. You perceive that I am well dressed, and I tell you that I have every thing that a reasonable man need desire.’ ‘ Ah sir, you are a fortunate man.”— “ Well, rny friend, I would not have been so if I had sat and begged as you are doing.’ * I have no other means of gain­ ing my living.’ ‘ Are you lame V ‘ No, sir.’ You are not blind or deaf, and you certainly are not dumb, as every passer by can testify. Listen : Some fifteen or twenty years I was a beggar like yourself: at length 1 began to see it was very dis­ graceful to live on the bounty o f others, and resolved to abandon this shameful way of life as soon as I possibly could. I quitted Paris— I went into the provinces — I begged for old rags. The people vvere very kind to me, and in a short lime I returned to Paris, vvith a tolerable large bundle of rags of every description. 1 carried them to a paper maker, who bought them at a fair price. I went on collecting until to my great joy, my finances enabled me to purchase rags so that I was no long­ er forced to beg for them. At length, by diligence and industry, I became rich enough to buy an ass, with two panniers, which saved me both time and labor. My business increased, the paper maker iound that I dealt honestly by him : 1 nev­ er palmed off old rags for good ones; I prospered, and see the result— in place of being a poor despised beggar, I have ten thousand crowns a year, and two houses in one of the best streets in Paris. If then, my friend, you can do no better, be­ gin as a rag merchant, and here,’ he con­ tinued, ‘ is a crown to set you up in your new trade, it is more than I had, and in addition, please take notice that if I find you here another Sunday, I shall report you to the police. On saying this, the old gentleman walked off, leaving Anthony and myself in a state of great surprise. Indeed, the beggar bad been so much in­ terested in the history be bad heard, that he had stood with open mouth and ears, in astonishment, nor had he even power to solicit alms from two well dressed ladies who passed at that moment. I could not help being struck with the story, but I had no time to comment on it, as the diligence had arrived, in which I seated myself, and pursued my way. From that period I lost sight of the beggar ; whether the fear of the police, or the hopes of gaining ten thousand crowns a year, had wrought the change, I was not aware: it is sufficient to say> that from that day forward he was never seen at the barrier. Many years after, it happened that business called me to Tours. In strolling the city I stepped into a book-seller’s shop to purchase a new work that had made some noise* I found there four young men, all busily employed, while a stout, good looking man was giving them orders, as he walked up and down with an air of importance. I thought I had seen the face of the book* seller before, but where, I could not tell, until he spoke, and then I discovered him to be my dd friend Anthony. Tbe recog. nition was mutual ; he grasped my hand, and led me through the shop into a well furnished parlor; he lavished every kind­ ness on m e ; and finally, gave me his his­ tory from the time we parted, at the Bar­ rier. With the crown of the stranger he began to collect rags? he made money, became the partner of a paper manufactu­ rer, married his , daughter; in short his hopes were fulfilled ; his ambition grati­ fied, and he could now count his income at 10.000 crowns. He prayed every day for blessings on his benefactor, who had been tbe means of raising him from the degraded condition of the common beggar. Anthony is so convinced of the folly and sin of idleness, and of subsisting on the alms of others, that while liberal and kind to those who are willing to work, no en­ treaties, no supplications ever prevailed on him to bestow a single sous oh those who would i.ot help themselves. A F F E C T IN G NARRATIVE. We do no know when vve have read tiny thing more painfully affecting, than the subjoined account of murder, deliber­ ately committed by a father upon his four children. The dreadful deed was perpe­ trated in March, at the parish of Basford, near Nottingham in England. The chil­ dren were aged ten, eight, five and two years respectively. Their mother was dead. The father, murderer is a man of thirty-five, a laborer, described as a man of kind disposition and good character, and noted for his attachment to his chil­ dren. The fearful deed appears to have been committed under the influence ofa morbid feeling of misery, occasioned by pecuniary distress—yet Greensmilh was in constant employment and receiving thirteen shillings a week. The little suf­ ferers were fine healthy children, and much liked by their neighbors. Thomas Greensmith of Basford, (the murderer) having been questioned by the coroner, said ; I live in the yard next to this -house, and Mr, Mark Woodward is my landlord. I went on Monday mor­ ning last to hedge on the farm of Mr. G. Brown, at Bestvvood Park ; I remained there all the day, and returned home in the evening about7 o’clock. When I got home, I took something to eat, staved in the house about half an hour, and then went to the Seven Stars public house, and near the Leather Bottle, returned home. I walked alone the whole of the way, and reached Basford between eleven and twelve that night. I met Mr. Joseph Woodward, (who is the father of Mr. Mark Woodward, my landlord) tn the yard ; he asked me about the rent, and I told him I had arranged with his son to pay it the next Wednesday but one ; he told me he would have it next morning ; I told him it was .impossible for me tn give it him the next morning, but tbat be should have it in the course o f next week; he said he would not be put off in that wav, and if I did not get it ready in the morning, he would take tny goods. I thought if he took my goods, that I should have no house— no where to go to— no home, nor nothing—and that before my children should be turned into the street, aud be separated from me, I would suffer what the law would please to clap.on me. (The prisoner here paused, and it was v r y apparent that great eimAifm^vrae-pa©- sing within his bosom, but after lie had answered two or three questions, he re­ sumed and described to the jury in the most minute detail, and vvith great com­ posure, as follows) : Coroner—Did you turn your house­ keeper away that night ? Prisoner—I told her she must go ; and I intended her to go out and not stay there liflat night. Coroner—Did you go up stairs as soon as she was gone ? Prisoner —No. I was not willing to part with my children, so I made up my mind to strangle them, and 1 did it with my handkerchief. Coroner— When did that idea first come into your mind 1 Prisoner—Not till that night— after talking to Mr. Woodward. I did not proceed up stairs immediately after my housekeeper left, i staled in the house- place about an hour ; I then went upj stairs and went directly into the children’s! room. I think some of them were awake, j but don’t know particularly. The threat' that Mr. Woodward gave me caused me to do what 1 did. There were two in one bed and two in the other. I think I took my handkerchief out of my pocket when I got up i'tairs, but don’t know where. I went to the b“d where the two youngest vvere lying (Mark and Ann); I think they were not awake at th.it time. I kissed them all, shook hands aud bade them good by, before I destroyed ihem. In less than a minute after I got into the room I began ; I took the youngest (Mark) first; I twisted my handkerchief a bit and put it round its neck, and tied it in a fast single knot. I drew it tight but I did not pull it at all afterwards , I then left hold o f the handkerchief. [The prisoner, there is a 1 ttle doubt, in his agitation, d r e w the knot of the handkerchief in the first instance across its mouth, as it bears marks on its lips, and ita tongue is bitten.) I had a candle with me in the chamber; I stood in the chamber, but do not know that I looked at it while it was strangling ; I believe I did not look \at it. I kept the handkerchief on its neck five minutes, I then took it off, and the child appeared to be dead. I did not see that it bled at the mouth, as I did not look at it in the face. It did no scream. Never a one of them ev e r winced. I went to Ann next, and lied the handkerchief round her throat the same way. When I had throttled Ann, I went down stairs and sl id against the fird for a few minutes. 1 stood consid­ ering; and thought I might as well suffer for them aU as for tv'o. I then went up stairs again, and was going up to the bed where the other two lay (the bed under the window in which John and William, the two eldest boys were*) when William jumped out of bed, ran across the floor, and got into the bed where Ann and Mary lay, which is the cause they afe all in one bed. I thought he had seen me strangle the other two. As be ran across the floor, he said {i Pray, father don’t do me so, I theD tied the handkerchief round the biggest boy’s neck (John’s) I did not look to. see if John struggled, but went and sat down on the bed side against William and said to him *• My lad, we’ll all shaie our fate; when I’ve done you I shall have nobody to think of but myself, and it will be my turn next,’5 and he never spoke more. They none of them ever winced, and I will take my oath never cried out. .-I I then went and took the handkerchief off j John’s neck— he appeared quite dead; William made no resLtar ce ; if he did it was the least in the world, as I gave him no chance, and he never screamed out at all. As soon as I had tied the handkerchief on William’s neck I went down stair?-; where I staied for more than an hour : 1 • ' then went up stairs again, and sat on the bed side, where William, .Ann and Mark lay till about 5 o’clock. I then took the handkerchief off William’s neck and put it in my h a t: this is it (taking a cottdh handkerchief out of his hat, and holding it up to show the cotoner.) I shook hands with them all, as I thought it would be the la?t time I shouid see them, and started. Coroner— When you destroyed the children, had you any idea of destroying yourself? Prisoner— No. I knew I should bd taken in a day or two. I knew I. should have to suffer what the law will inflict up­ on me; Coroner—How old are you. Green­ smith ? Prisoner— Thirty-five. This closed The case, and the jury im­ mediately returned verdict of willfui murder against Thomas Greensmith.’’ The prisoner was not in the least affects ed by this verdict, but on the contrary, as soon as he had delivered his testimony, his countenance brightened up, and he ap* peared more cheerful than during the ex­ amination of the witnesses. N a t u r a l C u r iosity .— The G e o l o g ical Survey of the State of New-York ib bring­ ing to light many interesting facts. It is ascertained, for instance, that White-Face Mountain, in the range of hills wherein the Hudson originates, is the highest iu the state, contrary to the usual belief, that Catskill enjoyed that distinction. White Face derives its name from the fact that it is covered with snow full three quar* ters o f the year. I is height is 4,900 feet — that of Cattskill, 3,b00 fee t. In the same range of hills, near White Face, a- nother rem a r k a b l e feature is noticed :— as follows : ‘The Notch,’ about five miles fi om the iron works at Newcomb, is next to the Falls of Niagara, the greatest natural curiosity in the state of New-York, and it is well worth a visit from the lovers of magnificent scenery. It is an immense' gorge or chasm, furnishing a passage through these high mountains. On one side, a precipice of solid rock rises per­ pendicularly by measurement from 1000 to 1200 feet, and on the other side a steep mountain att*-ins the elwatioti of nearly 5000 feet— the north branch of the Hudson, and the south branch of the Ausable, both rise in this gorge, the for­ mer flowing south, the latter north, the two streams being so near to each othet at these sources, that during freshets their waters mingle. Even the fragments o f rock, says the professor, lying in this notch ;iro wonderful for size, one mea- aureA forty-one feet wide nnd thirty-five feet high,— it is quadrangular in form, and will weigh about 500 tons, and is only one among hundreds of the same size. It is from facts like these, that we learn what mighty forces have operated in former times. jRoio transitory is Jame. — Bonaparts was .talkative when travelling. When pas­ sing through Burgundy on the return to Paris, after the battle of Marengo, he said, exultiogly, “ Well, a few more events like this campaign, and I may go down to pos­ terity.” “ I think,” replied I, “ that you hatfe already done enough to secure great and la-ting fame.” “ Yes,” replied he, “ I have done enough, tbat is true\; in It-ts ihur. two years I have won Cairo, Paris; and Milan ; but for all that, my dear fellow, were I to die to-morrow, I should not, at the end of ten centuries, occupy half a page of general history.” lie was right. Many ages pass before the eye in the course of half an hout’s reading, and the duration of a reign, or life, is but the affair of a moment. In a historical sum­ mary, a page suffices to describe all the conquests ol Alexander and Caesar, and all the devastations of Timour and Gen­ ghis Khan. We are indeed acquainted with only the least portion of past events. Is it worth while to desolate the world for so slight a memorial ? Filling up o f Lake Superior .— This mighty hike is tne largest body of fresh water in the known world— its length ia four hundred and eighty miles, ar.l its breadth one hundred and sixty-one ; its circumference about one thousand one hundred miles, and its depth nine hundred fathoms. Its waters are remarkable for their transparency, A bout one thousand streams empty themselves into thi-* lake, sweeping in sand, primitive bouldei tones and drift timber, which sometimes ac­ cumulates so as to form islands in tho estuaries. A lignite formation indeed, is said to be now in progress. Within a mile frorn the shore ihe water is about seventy fathoms—within eight miles, 130 fathotns* From the above causes, the Lake is gradually filling up* Lake Erie, ftorn sitfiilar Catfj-fes, ia al­ so filling up. This sheet of water is twd hundred and seventy miles in length, sixty in breadth, and two hundred fathoms ia depth. It is gradually becoming shaL lo\Ver. Long Point, for example, has, in three years, gained no less than three miles on the water On its southern shore, serious encroachments have been made in many places. Fora considerably distance above thd~ mouth of Black Biv- er, the bank of the lake is low, and With­ out rock. Thirteen years «go, the bank was generally sloping, with a wide beach — now the waves beat against a perpen­ dicular bank, which, from continual ab-» rasion, often (alls off. From one to three rods in width are worn away annually* Rich M en’s W ages .—Two neighbors met, one of whom was exceedingly Hich, and the other in moderate ciicumstahces. The latter began to congratulate the first on hts great possession, and On the hap* piness he ipust enjoy ; and ended by con­ trasting it with his own condition. “My friend,” said the rich man, “let me ask you one question. Would you be willing to take my property and take the whole care of it for your board and clothing? “N o ! indeed.” “ Well, that is all I g et.”
