( The rights of man, whether abstract or real,
, divine or vulgar, vested or contested, civil or un-
civil, common or uncommon, have been so frequent
' ' ly tliscnssed, that one would suppose there was
. nothing new to be felt or expresxed on the subject.
1 was agreeably surprised, therefore, during a late
1 pswsge front li eland, to .hear the rights of an in
dividual asserted in so very oovel a manner as to
seem worthy of record. The injured party was
an involuntary fellow-passenger, and the first
glance at him as he leisurely ascended the cabin
stair bespoke him an original. , tlia face, figure,
gait and gestures, were all more or less eccentric,
yet without any apparent affectation ofaingularity.
ilia manner was perfectly earnest and business
, like, though quaint, On reaching the deck,, his
first movement was toward the gangway, but a mo
ment sufficed to acquaint him with the elate of the
. case The letter-bags having been detained an
r bour beyocd the usual time of departure, the steam
.had been put on at a gallop, and her majesty's road
,. packet, the Guebre, had already accomplished
some hundred fathoms on her course. .. This unto-
ward event, however, seemed rather to surprise
than annoy our original, who quietly stepped up to
the captain with the air of demanding what was
tqierely a matter of course: ' -- ---
Ilalldskipper ! Off she goes oht but yoti must
turn about my boy, and let me get out."
"Let you get out V' echoed the astonished skip
per, and again repeating it with the musicians call
a stuccato, "Let youget out 1" - ' I
"Exactly so.' I'm ging ashore."
" I'm rather afraid von are iiol, r,M said the
skipper, looking decidedly serious " unless, you
. allude teethe oihor s'mIo." ' - "

. untanly turning to England... . Poo.!. poQl noa

quite solemnly, " but it is my firm opinion, that
you art going acrose !" ,
r. " Foo ! poo I all gammon ; I tell you I am go
ing back to Dublin."
" Upon my word, then," said the skipper rather
briskly, " you must swim back, like a grampus, or
borrow a pair of wings from the gulls."
The munat ttie helm griuned tii broailost, at

the original turned round, parosVtf fhyeoa's laugh

The grains exliaust a soil the most, and repair (he
