'Books,' said he, 'have you anything to drink?'
'To be sure I have,' said tbe other, and im

Having moistened his clay, Mac tcok a seat
and his employer another. Mac gave a prelim

to Brooks, looked him straight in the eyes, and
blapped him on the thigh. .
'Brooks,' savs he, 'was von' ever in Charles

'Why,' you know I never was,' replied tbe
other. .
'Well then Brooks,' says the agent, 'you ought
to go there. The greatest place upon the face
of the earth ! They've got houses there on both

Brooks, 1 think I met five thousand people iu
a minute, and not a chap would look ut me.
They've got houses on wheels. Brooks, I saw
one with six horses hitched to it, and a big dri
ver, with a long whip going it like a whirlwind.
I followed it down the road for a mile and a
half when it stopped I looked, and what do you
think there was?- Nothing iu it but one little
woman sitting up in one corner.
- 'Well, Brooks, I turned back up the road,
and as I was riding along, I sees a fancy look

back, and his boots as shiny as the face of an up

of the road and asked him a civil question, and
a civil question, you know, Brooks, Calls for a

The intelligence from India, that Rnssia has .
formed an alliance with Dost Mohammed, has
all at ouce brought into notice a name,' famous
enough ten years ago, but lately almost forgot
ten. There are doubtless thousands of our.
leaders, especially the younger ones; wondering
who Dost .Mohammed is. sWe will tell them,
for it is it name ; that will probably, live in
hisjory. : - - " : .''..,- '!. - ' :'-' - -

Cabul, the capital, and haWuo luiide'
of Dost Mohammed, sent him across the Indnwv
to their own territories, where they retained
him in a sort of ho'norabla captivity. At the
same time Shah Shnja was replaced on the
throne of Cabul. These events happened in
1839 and 1840.
Fortius interference in the affairs of Affghan
istau, the British had no excuse whatever. It
is true that the Persians were at war with
Herat, aud the British feared, if Herat fell, that
the Persians, instigated by Kussia, would as
sail British India next. It is true also that
Dost Mohammed was believed to favor the
Persians' designs on Herat. But that Dost
Mohammed was, at this juncture, bo.tiic to the
British, has never been proved. Dearly, how
ever, did the British pay for their interference.
In November, 1841, an insurrection broke out
at Cabul against the British. Iu the tumult
Sir Alexander Barnes, and several other dis
tinguished officers, lost their lives. This par
tial risiug wa3 followed by an insurrection over
the whole kingdom. The British, for tbe first
time in India, since Lord Clive began to lay
the foundations of their power, quailed before
the storm. Sir William McNaghten, the Brit
ish euvoy at Cabul, agreed with Akber Khan,
the favorite son of Dost Mohammed, to evacu
ate', tlte country, Akbtr stipulating to escort
the British army to the frcnt.ers, aud Sir Wil
liam pledging that Shah Shuja should abdicate,
iu order to make room for Dost Mohammed's
return. At a second meeting between Sir Wil
liam and Akber, a dissension arising, probably
provoked on purpose by the latter, Sir William
was shot dead by the Affghan -chief. ' Akber,
however, agreed subsequently to tarry out the
terms of the treaty. :,
Now began a retreat the horrors of which
only that of Moscow has equalled in i modern
times. Akber protessed to escort ; tne liritisti
army, but secretly; instigateaf it is euevcu, me
mountain tribes to assail tliem; aud consequent-
iy tbe march -jwiw'nstitt..atf' 'jdJkiiT.a Bceno
were blocked up witn snow ; . tne troops ; were
encumbered with a large number of women and
children, besides a: vast body of camp followers.
Some died from exposure, and. some were left
to perish from Eickuess ou the way side; but
the greater quantity fell by the sword of tho
merciless mountaineers. ' Never but ouce in
modern times has a more tigual vengeance been
visited on invaders. The passes were filled along
the whole line of retreat, with corpses,' that c
ten were pi led in heaps. Almost the only per
sons who escaped were some ofliccrs and their
wives, who had placed themselves under Akber's
personal care, a few marches from Cabul, and
who, after mouths of captivity, after terrible
privations and after long weeks of suspense,
more agonizing than the worst privations, suc
ceeded, by bribes, iu making, their escape and
reaching the nearest British fort, having ridden
several days in hourly peril of their lives.
The British, meautime, had advanced in force
from their own side of the Indus, aud had even
penetrated to Cabul;. but the prisoners having
been thus recovt rod, and Shah Shnja liaving been
assassinate-!, it was resolved to leave the Aff
ghans to themselves. Accordingly Dost Mo
hammed, who had been retained iu captivity all
this time, and whose participation in the late
eventi, though suspected, cuold not be proved,
was set at liberty. He took possession at once
of the throne oi Cabul, The British simultane
ously abandoned that capital, but not until they
had destroyed its famous bazar. It was in
November, 1842, that the last division re-crossed
the Indus, and the Affghan pr'inte was re
stored to freedom and escorted t the frontiers
of his kingdom. Just twelve months had elaps
ed siuce the insurrection in Cabul. But in that
single year a more fatal blow had, been struck
it tic British power, by destroying the idea of
British invincibility, than the whole ninety pre
ceding years had witnessed, since the British
arms lirst began to make headway in the Easl,
Dost Mohammed has no love for the Knglisl . little. doubt that he secretly canetd the
massacre at Cabul, and that he will, at the first
chance, siek still further vengeance. In releaR-
