THE M ERCH ANT'S HEART ;
- on, tub jew's wagek.
Matthias, the Levantine merchant, had spent his
.whole life, from his boy time upward, in travelling
for the sake of gain, to the east and to the west,
and to the .islands of the south seas. ' He -had re
turned to his native. p;ac', Tarsus, in the full vigor
of i .in hood, an I -was reported to have amassed
great wealth. II s first step was to make a prudent
call unon the trovernor, and to present him with a
purse and a string of pearls, in order to bespeak
liis good-will. lie then buiit himself a spacious
palace in the midst of a garden on the border of a
stream, and began to lead a quiet lite, resting after
the fatigues of his many voyages. Most persons
considered him to be tllie happiest of merchants;
but those who were introduced to his intimacy
kiiew that his constant companions were thought
and sadness. When he had departed in his youth,

fallen upon them every one, and .that -there .was no
one to share his prosperity : and a blight came over
' his heart,
. The gossips in the bazaars 'soon began to talk of
hl ease, and it was then that Hanna, -.-the Christian

Three jackets returned upon thy hands, a rusty
pair of scissors,, an old stool, and onft bundles of
tli read Ver-ilv : the risk is not great." The
Christian said a praver or two to himself, that he
might not curse his neighbor, and then ansewred :
" I will throw in Zarifeh, the ebony-black j il l whom
I bought last spring to follow my wife when she
goes out with . rlie little Gorges to the gardens
AVhat say est thou now C
The Jew -pondered awhile, leaning his grey beard
on the -breast -of his caftan, lie remembered that
forty years b'efore, he, top, had returned from travel
: with his - Money-bags, and had found his house
desolate; and that he had devoted 'himself ever
since to moodv reflection, and to the heaping of j
vmhboub upon mahboub. The thought had there
fore become fixed ia his mind that when the mid
ale time of life comes, there can remain no affection
in the heart, either of Christian or of Jew, or of
Mahommadan, but for gold, So he said : ." Let
the odds be equal. I will venture five hundred
pieees against thy five hundred pieces, that within
five years the merchant Matthais does not take
unto his bosom a wife." "Agreed !" cried the
'Christian. The neighbors were called in as wit
nesses, and every one laughed at the absurdity of
: the dispute.
Matthais was not long in learning that a wager
had been laid upon bis future life; and, in passing
through the bazaar, he stopped one day and said,
.sternly to the Christian tailor: "Son of rashness,
why hast thou risked more than the whole of thy
havings upon a matter which is only known to
IL javen ? I have looked upon all the maidens of
niy( people, and no emotion has stirred within me.
Verily thou wilt become a prey to this Jew."
' My lord," replied the tailor,' smiling, " it is
impossible for a good man to remain all his life
alone. If thou w ilt come to my house and see my
wife and my little Gorges dancing in, the arms of
; the 'ebony-black girl, Zarifeh, thou, wilt surely
relent and seek at once to be, as I am. Terhaps
thou hast hot well looked around thee. There is
, Miriam, the daughter of owr baker, who is of maj
estic presence, being as big as thyself: She will
suit thee to a hair, if thou desirest, my wife shall
make proposals for thee this afternoon." Matthias
laughed and frowned, and went on, and the Jew
chuckling in his beard said : " O Hanna, for how
much w ilt 'tho.iufree thyself from thy wager ? Wilt
thou pay a hundred pieces and let all be said?"
But the Christian replied: In five years Saint
. Philotea wore away a stone as big as this stool
with her kisses and her 'tears in five years the
heart of this man may melt."
Matthias went not on his way unmoved after his
conversation with the Christian tailor, lie began
to think that perhaps, indeed, he was wearing
away his life uselessly in solitude. There was
certainly, no beauty sn4 no satisfaction in that
manner of being. It was better to take to himself
a compauion. But where find her? Amongst all
the frivolous daughters of Tarsus, was there one
with whom he would not be more lonely than
with himself? Their mothers had taught them no
thing but love of dress, and love of themselves.
How could their capriciots and selfish natures find
pleasure in communion5 with a man whom this
world had sore tried, and who wished to watt in
meekness and patience for the world to come ?
These meditations d sturbed Matthias, but they
did not render him more unhappy. They occupi
ed his. mind ; they relieved the monotony of his
existence; they prevented him from always turning
his' eyes inward, upon himself ; they forced him
to ljxk abroad. He jvent to the houses of his
friends ,and once more ptudied the perfections or
imperfections of their daughters. His object was
so manifest, that the joke went round that hewisb
ed to save the Christian tailor from ruin. People
jested-with' the Jew as they brought. in their money
to change. But, although Matthias saw many
beautiful girls who threv the glances of their almond-shaped
eyes encouragingly towards him, he
saw none that pleased His reart; and, suddenly re
tiring from society, shut himself up for a whole
year in his palace,.seeing nobody, and taking back
melancholy and discontent for his only companions.
At length Matthias began to feel the desire of
change, and made it a practice every morning to
have his mule saddled and to ride out to the bas,
of the mountains ;and then putting foot to ground
to wander until evening amidst the rocks and valleys.
On one occasion he went so far that he could not
return to where he had left his mule and servant
before night-fall, and lost his way. After going
hither and thither for some time, he was compell
ed to seek the shelter of a cave, and to wait until
morning. Sleep overtook him, and he did not
wake until the sun's rays slanting in thrdugh the
cleft of the sock, played upon, his eye-lids. He
got oj ; and Larin- sard hi, praters, vent forth
and beheld a beautiful green meadow stretching
along the banks of a stream which came from a
narrow gorge at no great distance, He did not
recognise his whereabouts and was doubtful of
finding his way back, until he saw, at the further
end of the meadow, some object moving rapidly to
and fro. It was a young girl chasing a cow that
had escaped from her, and ran with a cord tan
tried about its horns in the direction of Matthias.
Ah 1" said be, " I will catch this unruly animal,
and then make its keeper point out to me the direc
tion of Tarsus."' So he tucked up his ro1 es, and,
being strong and vigorous, soon came up to the
cow that was wantonly galloping hither and thith
er, and brought it to astand-still. "May blessings
light upon thy sturdy arms, stranger," exclaimed
the girl, running up out of breath, and unwinding
the rope from the cov-s horns ; " if Naharah had
escaped they would have beaten me."
"And who could jfind it in his heart to beat
thee, child t" said the nlerehant, as he looked at
her and wondered at "her delicate loveliness.
"The fathers," she replied, pulling Naharah in
the;direction"fehe wanted to go. " Triple blessings
upon thee, again I say.; stranger !"
Matthias forgot all about Tarsus, and walked by
the side of the girl, asking questions of her. 'He
learned that she was jthe bond maiden of a monas
tery situated in those 'mountains, and that her duty
was to take out the cows, and especially this one,
every niorninji to theipasturao-e. " Do not follow
me," said she, when they came to the entrance of
the gorge from which the stream flowed ; " for I
am forbidden to talk with those whom I may
meet." Matthias thought awhile, and then bade
her adieu, having learned what path he was to fol
low, and Teturned tojhis palace full of nothing but
the image of this simple bond-maiden.
" Verily," said hei to himself next morning, "I
forgot to ask the nahie of that girl. ' I must learn
it, in order that I 'may send her a recompense."
Under this poor pretence he mounted his mule,
and rode towards the mountains, and began"his
walk at the usual place, and repaired to the cave
and passed the night there, and was out on the
meadow before dawn. He soon saw four or five
cyws driven out of the gorge, and the girl following
them, leading the frolicsome Naharah. There is
no need for thee to-day, stranger," said she, smil
ing playfully, " unless thou wilt drive my herd
down to the water to, drink, and take care that the
black one goes in ifirst, or else she will gore the
others." Upon this, Matthias took the branch of
a tree and began to cry, " Hoo ! boo !" like a herds
man,' and fo beat I the flanks of the black cow,
which scampered aWay, and led him a long chase
round the meadow ;! so that he did not come back
until all the other animals had taken their morn
ing drink, aud the! girl was sitting on the bank
laughing at him, and wreathing a! crown of flowers
to deck the horns of Naharah. j
".Thou dost not know thy new business," said
she, to Matthias, ajs he came up out of breath ;
whereupon he began to curse the cow which had
led him that dance, :and to tb ink that be had made
himself ridiculous in the eyes of the girl. How
ever, they were soon sitting side by side in pleasant
talk, and the merchant learned that the name of
the bond-maiden was Carina.
'By this time Le bad quite made ur his mind to
marry her, if she would have him ; but, although
reflecting upon his wealth and her poverty, it seem
ed scarcely prcbable that she should refuse, his
modesty was so great that he dared not venture to
talk of love. They parted early, and Matthias went
away, promising to return on the morrow. He did
so ; and for many weeks continued these meetings
in which, for the fi.rst time since his youth, he found
real happiness. At length, one day he took cour
age, and told Carine that he intended to tike her
away and marry her, and make her the mistress
his wealth. " My lord," said she, with simple
surprise, " has madness stricken thee? Dost thou
not know that I am a bond-maiden, and that there
is no power that can free me
" Money can free thee, child," said Matthias.
" Not. so," replied she; "for it is an ancient
privilege of this monastery that bondsmen and
bondswomen shall forever appertain to it. If any
freeman casts his eyes upon one of us, and desires
to marry her, he must quit his state and become a
slave, he and his descendants forever, to the mons
tery. This is why I was not married last year to
Skandar, the porker, who offered twenty pigs for
my freedom, but who refused to give up his lib
erty." Matthias internally thanked heaven for
having given an independent spirit to the porker,
and replied, smiling "Believe me, Carine, that
the fathers love money they all do and I shall
purchase thee as my wife."
. " It Is nonsense," said she, shaking her head,
" they refused twenty pigs."
" I will give twenty sacks of gold, baby," cried
Matthias, enraged at her obstinacy. Carine replied,
that she was not worth so much ; and that, if she
were, it was of no use talking of the matter, for the
fathers would not sell' her. " By Saint Maron !"
exclaimed Matthias, "I can buy their whole mon
astery." He tfas mistaken. The monastery of Selafka
was the richest in all the east, and the head of it
was the most self-w illed of men. He cut short the
proposition of the merchant who went straight to
him that very day by saying that on no account
could the liberty of Carine be granted. " If thou
wouldst marry her," said be, looking, as Matthias
thought, more wicked than a demon, " thou must
give up all. thy wealth J us,,nd beijo cmt
bondsman." With this answer the lover went sad
ly away, and returned to Tarsus, saying to himself
" It is impossible for me to give up, not only
the pains of all my life, but even my liberty, fb"
the sake of this cow-girl. I must try to forget her"
So he went back among his fiiends, and began
again to walk in the bazaars. When the Jew saw
him, he cried out " Hail, oh wise man, that wil
uot burthen himself with the society of a woman !"
But the merchant frowned black upon him, and
turned aay ; and, to the surprise of all the neigh
bors, went and sat down by the side of the Christ
ian tailor, and, taking his hand, whispered to him :
''Close thy shop, my friend, and lead me, that I
may see, 'as thou didst promise thy wife and thy
" Which child V said the tailor. " I have now
three, Gorges, Lisbet, and Hanna."
"All of them," said Matthias: "and also the
ebuny-black girl, Zarifeh."
" Oh !" said the tailor, " I have set her free, and
she is married to the pudding-seller, round the
" It seems," said Matthias to himself, " that it is
the law of heaven that every mail shall marry."
The tailor shut up his shop and took the mer
chant home and showed him his domestic wealth
that is to say, his pretty wife, his three stout
children, aud a coal black girl called Zara, who
was kneading dough in the court-yard. " My.
friend," said Matthias, "what wouldst thou do if
the powerful were to say to thee, thou must be de
prived of all this, or else lose thy liberty and be
come a slave ?"
" Liberty is sweet," replied the tailor, shrugging
his shoulders, " yet some live without it ; but none
can live without love."
Upon this the merchant went back to his palace
and mounted his mule and rode to the monastery,
where he found the court-yard full of people. " I
am come," said he to one of the fathers whom lie
met ia the gateway, " to give up my liberty and
my wealth for the sake of Carine."
' It is too late," was the rply ; Skandar, the
porker, has just driven in all his pigs, and they are
putting a chain upon his neck in the chapel, and
all these people that thou'seest collected are to le
witnesses of his marriage with Carine."
Matthias smote his breast with his hands, aT d
the sides of his mule with his heels, and galloped
through the crowd shouting out that nobody should
be made a slave that day but he. The chief of the
monastery, on learning what was the matter, smil
ed and said, " That the porker had a previous
claim ;" but the monks, who, perhaps, looked for
ward to the enjoyments which the merchant's
wealth would afford them, ingeniously suggested
that he had the best claim who had hesitated least.
Caine's opinion was asked ; and she, seeing both
of her suitors' resolved, heartlessly condemned the
enamored porker to liberty, and said : "Let the
chain be put upon the neck of the merchant." The
ceremony was immediately performed ; and, whilst
the head of the convent was preparing tb begi
the more interesting rite of the marriage, brother
Boag, the treasurer of the monastery, set off to
take an inventory of the wealth which had thus
'fallen under his jurisdiction.
It is said that Matthias never gave a single j
thought to his lost property, being too much absor
bed in contemplating the charms of the beautiful
Carine.vThe only stipulation he made was, that he
should te allowed to go out to the pasturage with
her; and, next morning, he found himself in sober
seriousness helping to drive Naharah and its com
panions down trt,'.e watera aidrv . ri:-:

reason of- certain loans without interest and presents
(over and above the purse and the string of pearls
.whici? the "merchant had presented at his first com
ing,) with which Matthias had freely obliged the
governor :who also hoped a continuance of the
same.!' Whereupon the chief of the monastery hid
his hands and was humbled; and the governor

led back amidst applauding crowds to his palace
at Tarsus. Of course he made a liberal donation
to thai monastery, over and above a round sum
which Boag, the treasurer, had not found it in his
heart to return with the rest. Being a just and
generous man, he not only relieved the Jew from
the consequences of his wager, but made such pre
sents to the Christian tailor, that he had no longer
any need to ply the needle for his livelihood.
Tradition dilates with delight on the happiness
whicli Carfpe bestowed on her husband ; who used
always to say. that with wealth or without wealth,
withpibrrty or without liberty, she was sufficient
to brlnv -potent into any house, and to make the
sternest hart happy."

A Colony of Sevex Hundred Lunatics. At
the last sitting of the French Academy of Science,
a paper oh insanity, was read by its author M. Mo
reau, one of the physicians present. The chief ob
ject of this pamphlet is to recommend the adoption
in France, as regards pauper lunatics, of the plan
resorted to in Belgium. M. Moreau states that in
the village of Gheel, in that country, there is a
colony of trot less than seven hundred lunatics,
who are treated upon so admirable a system that
they are perfectly harmless, and live and labor with
the same inhabitants whose habits they acquire,
and to which they become so attached that w hen
cured they are frequently unwilling to quit the
place. These lunatics are made usefql in agricuW
ture and manufactures, and consequently the cost
is small compared with ordinary lunatic asylums.
The origin of this colony dated as far baek as the
sixth contury, and is auotheT verification of the old
adage, that there is nothing new under the sun.
The mode of treating the lunatics at-Hantwell,
near London, was considered, when first put into
practice, as a novelty, and yet it was nothing but
the Gheel practice imperfectly carried out. It is
surprising that this improved mode of treatment
should have been deferred so long in England ; and
it Is now evident that it is capable of great exten
sion in its application. Within the last few years
orjy, in that country, medical men have ascertain
edi the possibility of so classing and occupying lu
natics as to render even the most violent of them
comparatively tranquil, and thus facilitate the cura
tive process. For chains, whips, and other means
of correction, kindness and intelligence on the part
of the keepers has been substituted.
To Store Fruit. Those to be used first, lay by
singly on shelves, or on the floor, in a dry southern
room, on clean, dry moss, of sweet, dry straw, so
as not to touch one another. Some or all the rest,
having first laid a fortnight singly, and then nicely
culled, are to be spread on shelves, or on a dry
floor. But the most superior way is, to pack in
i ar a
large earthern, or China, or stone jars, with very
dry, long moss at the bottom, sides, and also be
tween them, if it might be. -Press a good coat of
moss on the top, and then stop the mouth close
with a cork, or otherwise, which should be rosined
round about with a twentieth part of bees'-wax in
it. As the object is effectually to keep out air (the
cause of putrefaction), the jars, if earthern, may be
set on dry sand, which put also between, round and
over them, to a foot thick on the top. In all close
storing, observe there should be no doublt of the
soundness of the fruit. Guard, in time, from frost
those that lie open. Jars of fruit must be soon used
