BY “ BLANCH WOODBUP.T.”
Where are the lionies, the dear old homes.
The iiomes as they used to be,
With the trugal wives, and their busy lives,
As they sang right merrily,
In their apron check, and kerchiei’d neck,
Till the distaff was spun,
ThcH hearty with mirth, round the blazing hearth,
They wake tlie spirit of fun ?
Where the old watch-dog with his lazy joj;,
'I'be cusliio/ied moustr his loe.
And Uncle 'l'iin,witli his gouty limb.
And his beautiiul locks of piiow.
Tbn the Christmas “crack” from Santa’s pack,
The “ bon-bons” beyond compare,
T icy “hide andseik’ and the ‘ bliiidibld" freak
Ay ! tlic strut of the wee one there ?
Where thcoaken floor and the quaint latchcd door
'Phat oped to let virtue in,
W'hile health’s Iresh cheek hid her blushes meek,
And Fashion owned Mc)desty kin.
When the Blessed IJook knew its honored nook,
Its p(j\ver and authority’s sway ;
When the curtsei’ low and the grief bent bow
Were revcr n..'! a primitive way.
When white hands lent to the garments rent
A beauty unknown bctbrc ;
And the lioncst glance ne’er look'd askancc—
hen creditors passed the jioor.
When the pattering rain rang the miniature pane.
Or tuneful on rwof as it I'ell,
Ijike toni's afar t'rom a sweet guitar,
Or chimes from some fiiiry bell.
When tlu. sweet,sweet sight of a holy light
Shone clear troni the lore lit eye.
And friendship’s band, and cordial hand
Were precious in days gone by;
O. the key to the Iiomes—the dear old homes—
’I’lw homes as they used to be ;
For wliieli we mourn and hopelessly yearn,
Ls but virtue’.s simplicity.
‘Are 30U not Mr. Grey, the inventor of this
delicate and important machinery ?’
‘1 am Mr. Grey, but I am not tho inventor of
anything,’ returned James, bitterly. ‘ Here is the
fortunate person, my cousin, Wiiliain Grey,’ he
coniinued, as William entered.
‘ I rejoice in your success, young man,’ said the
stranger to William. ‘ Vour [)ian has met the en
tire approbation of the coinmittce, of which I am
one. My name is Wilson, and I om authorized
to pay you the tl.ousand dollars, atid also to ad
vance you anot!ier thousand on condition that you
snf)erintend the erection of the works to be estab-
I li'iioj.’
William was astonished, overwhelmed, and af
ter expressing his thanks, added, ‘ I am yet an
afiprentice, and my lime will not f,\|tire within
some three months. After that I will accept your
ofier, if you will wait till then.’
‘ An apprentice 1’ said Mr. Wilson. ‘ How,
then, let me ask you, have you obtained such a
knowledge ol mechanism?’
‘ By savitig my leisure moments joined lo a love
of rny business, as involving some of the best in
terests of man.’
Six months from ihat time saw William in a
responsible ofTice, wiih a liigh salary, while James
was a journeyman laborer with twenty-five dollars
a month.
* Well, James,’ said H:irry Gilbert, a short time i
alter, ‘ Williatn is soiueholy, after all.’ j
‘ Yes, returned James, ‘ I think we judged him |
wrongfully once. I would give all 1 have in the
world to live over my apprentice life again. These
leisure momenl!^ are what nmkes the man afler all,

liiiu!) jxissessed tifevery quality to make him hap
py, yet Irom carelestnesn, proceeding either from
thouglillessiicss or want o( knowledge, the rich
treasures of a loving heart and brilliant intellect
are eiislirined in a fr.igile casket. He may wuo
and win her to his heart and home, while the
seeds of death are lurking in her system, and in a
‘ Ji mes, we are machinists, causing gross ma
terial substaiji.vs to assume sh ipes of beauty and
fitness under the mysterious suprefiiaey of our
wills. .Some call this a low, common business, a
mechrinicfil operation; but it is not 30. Tliere is
a men'al poMer to which matter must bo\v, and
there is notliing higher thar\ to elevate /ind enoble
our conceptions, so as to make this [ilastic niatter
>uhservient to the best interests of man. It is
lew brief years be h it to mourn over the wreck of i thus improvements arc made, tirst the ideal then
bliohled hopes, and wonder at the ‘dispensations \ CorrPS|'onding outward furn). In my mind
of Providence,’ liulo dreaming tl\at all this pro- iis uliadowed forth, thout;h but dimly ’
ceeded from early neglect. .Sad it is when, after ; ‘ S.»vc me from such learned inflictions,’ ex-
yea ts of (intienf, loving care and watchfulness, his
home is thus darkened ; hut far sadder is it when
the cause can be traced directly back to knowti im
prudence tn early youth, when, in order to dress
w’ant of iysleiii. Again, ibe municipal regula
tions ar® entirely nugatory; those which exist,
being dependant on soioe Pashn, :ire never at
tended lo. And when we consider all the wants
«nd necesKitiei orising from this false system of
Turkish adminisirntion, we will feel no hesitation
in uttering the cry—“Give us any civilized mas
ters.” 1 am induced to believe that, in a couple
of year* Ircm this time, we will see a fine and
noble city, rising like a Phcenix from its ashes, on
ihe site of the present. Mighty clianges, convulsing
fjoih Europe und America, may take place beforo
then !

not altogether decry the present edministratioii of
Turkey, for it has made many beneficial reforms.
And I must remark, that more toleration, both
religious and civil, e.xisis under tho Oitoman
government than would be found under that of
France. Indeed, I think that many restrictions
would be laid on religious sects then which do not
exist now, nnd that if any one belief should bo
patronized and fostered, it would be the Roman
Catholic. Looking ut it in that light alone, 1 would
sooner remain as 1 am, under a Mussulmnn dis
pensation: bul when we view iociety and literature
i and science, and see its stationary position under
I the same dispensation, 1 would advocato tiio
I change.
Some curious ncenes happen now and then in
the slreet.s, since the inllux of foreign troops.—
'I'wo da\8 ago, I was walking past the Church of
St .Marie, in the main street ol Pera, when an ad
vancing crowd drew my attention. In tho midal
appeared an E:igli.sh corporal, who had been in
dulging in the “jovoUs juice” of tho grape, und
was .somewhat tight—in boih seiusos of the word,
for he was pinioneil in the grasp of two Ttirkish
officials—Kavo.sses. As 1 drew near, the said
corporal was e.xpressitig his beliel that the Turks
were not real policemen, and that though he w a-i
I not “going homo till morning,” he vvould ralhcr
j go home then. To all this rigmarole tlu; l)enc\o*
! lent Kavasses only answered by Bono John?/’/
! and Jldicb/ Rn^’lish Consonf, Bi}’hy John)iy,
i other kind expressions. Then the corporctl would
disclaim at the idea of his name being Jihuuu.
Alihough the scene \\a!4 amusing, and I was t.tdl
more div« rted by .hearing the consolatory advici
of some English tars, who were lingering about
ready for a mus, and exlioriing the prisj;;cr “»TOl
lo let her Majesty’s service be abused.”
Again, yesterday, 1 saw a coiiple of I'rench-
men pursue with their dr^'vn swords a lot of
C^rccks and Turk’, wiiu h;.d been annoying them.

C-ONSTANXI.NOPLK, Dcc. 18, 1854.
This day, ihe 18ih of the month, is the great
St. Nicholas day of the Russians, as well as the
Greeks, and is kept by their church with great
solemnity. And as the Jiussians are in the habit
of using their holidays to accomplish acts ol hos
tilities against Uie Eogli.'ih and French, fears had
been entertained that St. Nicholas’ day would
witness a serious attack Irom the enemy. With
in ihe last few days, these fears or hopes, as
many would call them, have been strengthened
by the report of deserter.s anti prisoners. Conse
quently greater watchfulness and alertness have
been prescribed this day, and the whole armv is
to be called out ai a moment’s warning.

But how’ever amusing ihese things are, worse
and
thraHhed as then, it will be to-day, should the
j enemy dare to attack. “Sebastopol must fall,” is
! the countersign to which everything else must
tend. Battle after battle may take place, but will
(only hasten the event; and breaking down the
confidence of the Russians, Sebastopol will prove
I tho easier victory in the end.
j The present movements of the Allies are nil
tending in a most energetic manner lo carry out
! the one great object of the campaign, and that is,
the overilirow of Sebastopol, and the total deslruc-
j tion nf the Russian fleet. For that purpose, rein-
■ forcements are now' hastening to tho Crimea, as
scenes happen at night, for rt)ws nnd figlits lake
