A C H A P T E R FROM MISS P A R B O E ’S C I T Y OP T H E SU L T A N . A vast deal of very romantic and affec­ ting sentiment has been Irom time to time committed to paper, on the subject of the Turkish females drowned in the Bospho- rns ; and some tale writers have even gone so far as to describe,in the character of witnesses, the extreme beauty and the haart-rending tears of their victims. The subject is assuredly one which lends itself to florid phrases and highly wrought periods; but it is unfortunate that in this case, as in many others, the imagination far outruns the fact. I say unfortunate, because those readers who love to “ sup full of horrors,’’ when they have wept over the affecting image of beauty struggling against the grasp of the executioner, and dark eyes looking re­ proach upon their murderer from amid the deep waters which are soon to quench their light for ever, do not like to descend to the sober assurance that none of these things can be; and that the veracious chroniclers, who have excited their sen­ sibilities, and misled their reason, have only built up a pathetic sketch upon infer­ ence, and in reality know nothing at all about the matter. There is no romance in one of these frightful executions— ali is harsh unmiti­ gated horror. The victim may or may not be young and beautiful, her execu­ tioners have no opportunity of judging.— She may be lhe impersonation of grace, and they must remain equally ignorant of the fact; for she has neither power nor opportunity to excite sympathy, were shp the loveliest honri who ever escaped from the paradise of Mahomed. I have a friend, a man in place ancl power, who. during the time of the janis­ saries, and but a few months previous to the annihilation of their body, had been detained in the palace of one of the min­ isters until three hours past midnight ; and who. on passing across the deep bay near the Castle of Europe, was startled by perceiving two caiques bearing lights, lying upon their oars in the centre of the stream, liis curiosity being excited, he desired his boatmen to pull towards them; when, at the instant he came alongside, he discovered that they were filled with police officers ; and at the same, moment, a female closely shrouded in a yashniac, and with the mouth of a sack, into which her whole burly had been thrust, tied about her throat, was lifted in the arms of two men from the bottom of the furthest caique, and flung into the deep waters of the bay. As no weight had been appen­ ded to the sack, the miserable woman al­ most instantly reappeared upon tlie sur­ face, when she was beaten down by the oars of the boatmen ; and this ruthless and revolting ceremony was repeated several tunes ere the body finally sunk My friend, heart-sick at the spectacle fo which he had so unexpectedly become a witness, demanded of the principal of­ ficer, by whom he had been instantly rec ognised, the crime of the wretched vic­ tim who had just perished ; and learner that she was the wife of a janissary whom the sultan had caused to be stran- B l t l E F H I N T S FO R D E C E M B E R .

November lst, 1837. 25 having seen and approved tire lady, arran­ ges all preliminaries with her parents ; so it may well be imagined that the bride is frequently far from co- gratulating her­ self on her change of position ; and such, as it would appear from the result, was the case vvith lhe young wife to whom I have just referred, and who was destined to become the heroine of a frightful tragedy. T w o years passed over I’atma ITan- oum , and she becam e the mother o f a son : but her heart was not vvith its father case there was no mercy for the culprit. The imam vvas a stern man ; for one moment only he wavered ; and during that moment he raised the ample turban from his brow, and suffered the cool eve­ ning breeze to breathe lovingly upon his temples ; in ihe next Ire bent over the gallery and spat upon the earth, as he murmured to himself, “ The dog of an infidel ; may his lathers grave be defiled ! may his mother eat dirt!” and having so testified his contempt and abhorrence of the ill-fated lover, he lilted his gaze fo the clear sky, and the ringing cry pealed out : “ La Allah, ilia Allah ! Mahomed Resoul Alleh !” H is duty done, the imam descended the dark and narrow stairs ot the minaret, and left the mosque, ar.d in another in­ stant he had put o ff his slippers at the en ­ trance o f the saletnlick, and stood before the sofa ; at the upper end o f which sat the merchant s m o k ing his chibouk c f j e s ­ samine wood, and attende* by tw o s laves. The 'l urks are not fond husbands, but jealous ones. They are watchful of thei.i women not because they love them, but because they are anxious for their own honor ; and no instance can be adduced in which an Osmanli is wilfully blind to the errors o f his wife. Here “ the offence vvas rank, it smelt to heaven.” The young and beautiful Fatma Hanonm had wronged him vvith a Greek ! The gray beadred merchant trembling between rage ancl grief, rose from his seat, and rushed into the harem ; The tale was true— for one moment the aged and outraged husband looked upon lhe young and handsome lover ; and in the next the active Greek had flung up the lattice, and sprung from (he window. Ere long the house was filled with the relatives of tbe wife, and its spacious apartments were loud with anguish and invective ; but Fatma Hanoum answered neither to the sobbing of grief nor to the reproach of scorn : she sat doubled up on her cushions, with her eyes riveted on the casement by which her lover had escaped. The merchant, stung to the heart by the stain (hat had been cast upon his hon­ or ; embittered in spirit by the knowledge that it vvas a Chri-tian by whom he had been wronged ; and not altogether forget­ ful, it may be, of the grac* and beauty of the mother of bin child, sat moodily apart : and all the reasonings arid be- seechings of bis wife’s anxious family only wrung from him the cold and unyiel­ ding answer tbat he would never see her more. And the heretic lover, where was lie ? Like an arrow shot by a strong arm, he had sped to the home of his widowed mother, and had hurriedly imparted to her the fearful jeopardy in which he stood. There was not a moment to be lost, and, hastily snatching up some food that had been prepared for liis evening meal, he flung himself upon the neck of hia weeping parent ; and then, disenga­ ging himself from her clinging arms, rustied from tbe house, no one knew whither. But the inman, meanwhile, was not idle. He had aroused the neighborhood — he had raised the cry of sacrilege— he had bruited abroad the d i s h o n o r of the Moslem—and ere dong a Turkish guard was on the track of the young Greek __ But no truce of him could be discovered , and the frail and fair hanoum vvas remo­ ved to the harem of one of her husband’s relatives, where every look and action were subjected to the mo*t rigorous ob­ servance, before the faintest hope had been entertained of securing her misera- hie lover. Three wretched days were past, and on the morning of the fourth tho pangs of h u n g e r became too mighty for the youth to support. He stole from his conceal­ ment, he looked around him, and be w a s alone ! He ventured a f e w p-mes fo r ­ ward ; rich fruits were pendant from the branches of the tall trees beneath which N O * 3 0 . coming footsteps and, pushing aside thtf vase, sprang out upon the path. The moonlight fell on him as he emer­ ged from his concealment, pale and hag­ gard ; his dark locks dank vvith the hea­ vy atmosphere of his hiding place, and his frame weakened by exhaustion. As he gained his feet and looked around him, his arms fe l l lis t l e s s l y at liis s i d e s , and his head drooped upon his breast— he had no longer either strength or energy to wrestle with his fate ; and he put his hands into the grasp of the armed men among whom he stood, and suffered him­ se l f t<> be led a w a y from the home of his boyhood, and the clasp of his shrieking mother, vvith the docility of a child. The trial followed close upon the dis­ covery of the lover. There was no hope for the wretched pair ! Against them ap­ peared the imam, siern, uncompromLi.ng, and circumstantial— the outraged hus­ band, wrought to madness by the memory of his dishonor, and callous as marble— the faith which had been disgraced^—so­ ciety which had been scandalised. For them there was none to pleod save the gray-haired and widowed mother, who wept and knelt to save her only son ; but who asked his life in mercy, and not in justice. Did their youth sue for them? Did the soft loveliness of lha gutly wife, or tfio manly beauty of the lover, raise them up advocates ? Alas, these vvere their direst condemnation: and thus it only remained for them to die ! It w a s at th i s period th a t my friend, the --------- q first became connected with the affair. The family of the condemned w o m a n , k n o w i n g his in f l u e n c e vvith the government, flung themselves at his feet, and implored his interference. They ex­ patiated on lhe beauty of the misguided\ Fatma— on the personal qualifications of him whose love she had felt— they left no theme untouched ; and he became deeply interested in her fate, and resolved that while a hope remained he would not aban­ don her cau?e. But he vvas fated (o plead in vain ; tho crimp had increased in the country; every Turkish breast heaved high with indignation ; my friend urged, supplicated, and besought unheeded ; and1 at length found himself unable to adduce- anoiher argument in her favor. When reiuctanily convinced of the fact, he discovered that, through his ex­ ertions to s a v e her life, his feelings had b e c o m e so d e e p l y en t h r a l l e d by tbe idea of the miserable woman, that he re.-olved to endeavour to sei* her ere she died ;— and he was start loci by the ready acquies­ c e n c e that fo l l o w e d his request, as w e l l as by the tf ;ms in whieh it was couched.— “ We sli ill visit her at midnight to ac­ quaint her officially vvith tho retuR of the trial,” w a s the a n s w e r : “ ;uid sh o u l d vo u * * ’hink proper, you may accompany us, for you will have no future opportunity of indulging your curiosity !” U n d e r tln s e c i r c u m s t a n c e s he did not hesitate ; und a few minute.- before mid­ night he vvas at the door of the harem in which she had resided since her removal from her husband’s house. Tho officers of justice followed almost immediate­ ly, and it str u c k him, as they p a s s e d the threshold, that they vvere in greater num­ ber than so simple an errand appeared ta exact; nut as he instantly remembered (hat others might feel the same curiosity as himself, a ;d profit by the ^ame means o f g r a t i f y i n g it, h e did not d w e l l u p o n th e cir c u t n M a n c e . All was hushed in the harem, and the fall of tiieir unshppered feet awoke no echo on the matted floors. One solitary slave avvaiied them at the head of the stairs, nnd he moved s l o w l y before the party with a sm a l l lam p in his hand, to the apartment of the condemned woman. She was sleeping when they entered— her cheek was pillowed upon her arms, and a quantity of rich dr.rk hair, which had escaped from beneath the painted handkerchief that was twisted about her head, lay sca'tcrcd over the pillow. She was deadly pala, but her eyebrows and the long silken Irishes which fringed her closed eyes, were intensely black, and he moved, and no seized them with avid- j relieved the pallor of her complexion j ity; but as he raided his hand a second , whde her fine and delicate features com* time to the iadeued boughs,he heard n« ar j pleted a s Jovelv a fa c e as e v e r fh e gaze of him the deep breathings of-one who wept : man had lingered on.

What means this ? What would you vvith me that you steal a few hours, when she would bring him thus upon me in the night ? Arn I not a bod. The young Greek stole hack to his hi­ ding place, and slept— the sleep of the wretched is heavy—slow to come, and >eighed down vvith wild and bitter reams ; and thus slumbered the criminal. The night wa3 yet dark when he awoke and heard footsteps, and then he doubted not that his watchful parent was indeed come to solace the moments of his trem­ bling solitude. Had he paused an instant, and offered time for the perfect waking of all his senses, he would have Turkish woman?
