This lie'ro was the son ufaL, the prince of Seistan,
wha was lxrn witft-whitp hair, and consequently
received from his lather th'e name of ZsiL or ." old
fellow." Sain, the father of Zal, wasjprime mpis

child was not his own son, but the oflspring of
' a magician, he exposed liim on the top of the rhoiint-
, According to the poetical legend, Zal was nurtur
ved on tlVis niountain by a grifiin. After a time, his
- father, being warned by a supernatural admonition,
took his son home! and brought him up at the
ersian court." In his manhood ' lie accompanied
his father to Caubul Wl jSerstan, over which coun
. tries Sam had been appointed governor. One day
Zal,while engaged' in the chase in a forest, came to
. a tower, and saw standing on one of its turrets a
- young lady of exquisite beauty. They mutually
gazed and loved, but there appeared no means by
: which "the enahwrcd Zal could ascend to the brittle-
.menti. After - iauoL embarrassment., an expedient
"7 occurred to the niaideii. She loosened her dark and
' beautiful tresses," which fell in ringlets to the foot
of the Jtpwer, and enabled the young hero to climb
y' up to her. This lady proved to be Rudabah, the
daughter of Melirab, King of Caubul. The love
J r occasioned by this extraordinary interview gave
.-'r rise- toj.a marriagey and liustein way born of this
union. Seven nurses were assigned for his support,
- but these proved insufficient, and a flock of sheep
- were : added to suckle the robust infant ! Such is
; I tliO' fabulous account of the" birth of the Persian
r hero, s - ' x
The deeds of Kusteni have been magnified iuto
r-'iiraclearby the poet who describes them, and thus
s his history is enveloped in romance ; yet there is no
- reason to doubt that he was a real versonare. lie
commanded 'the Persian armies, against the Tar
of Turan, who crossed the river Oxus, under th
, command .of ptinco -Afrasiab', and invaded Persia.
Kustem had received from his father the club of his
: ancestor Sam. VThis tremendous weapon, which
- had , long befen-ihe terror of Persia's enemies, was.
soon, preceived by' the Tartars. Afrasiab demanded
' who' that bov was that made such havoc in -Lis
ranks. One pf liis attendants replied, 44 Seest thou
not that he; wields the club of the mighty Sam
".' that' lie is a youth .the" object of whose soiil is ref
nown ?" Afrasiab, despising his enemy, hastened to
attack him. Kustem perceived his intention, and
observing that hjewas almost unarmed, threw aside"
his club and rushed to the combat. After a short
but violent contest, the -Persian hero seized the
' prince and bore hi'moft' hi saddle , but his girdle
breaking, Afrasiab fell to the ground, and his sol-
diers crowded to his defence in such numbers, that
it becjame. impossible for Rustem torecover his
" prisoner." But the rih crown and girdle of the
Tartar prince remained in the possession of the
victor, whose tnumpl J was completed by the en tire
defeat of the enemy. If We may belleVe the Persian
authors, Rusiem slew in this battle no less than 1,-

unfortunate result of schemes which were prompted
. by his ambition, but which he had not the ability
to consummate" Bis life is1 connected with a thous
and romantic incidents, which appear with great ef-
feet in the poem of Firdusi. ' Among them, we find

Rustem nd his son Sohrab, in. which' the Persian
hero gained a victory that embittred all his later

The uoet.! commences this episode' by calling it a
tale full of teafs. Younir Sohrab was the son of
Rustem. unknown to his father; for the inother
had-written to Rustem that, his child was a. daugh-
. ter fearinjr to lose her infant if the truth became
known. Sohrab, when lie grew up, left his moth
er and-sought fame under the banner of AfrasiaU
where he gained a renown beyond that of all con
temporary heroes, excepting only his father. lie
had carried dismay and death into the ranks of the
" Persians, and had terrified their boldest warriors.
At last, Ru&tem resolved to encounter him under a

- by mutual consent, though Sohrab had the ad-
Tantage. At the second, the youth obtained a
victory, but granted life to his unknown father. At
the third, meeting. Sohrab received.a mortal wound.
and fell Writhing in the pangs . of death, he warn-
- ed his conqueror to snun tne vengeance inspired by
parental woes, and bade him dread the rage of the
mighty Rustem, who must soon learn that he had

wield his lance, his sword, and his mace. At last,

I PROSPECTUS OF THE
North Carolina University Magazine.
THE Students of the University of North Carolina, having
deliberated in a body on the expediency of establishing a
literary organ, and well convinced of the mental and perhaps
moral benefit which may result therefrom, have resolved to
execute their design. Thev take this appropriate means of
informing the public. Nq legitimate department of literature
will be excluded from the Magazine, and it is presumed none
will be held objectionable, provided the article be thoroughly
winnowed of the chaff of improprieties. ' Every effort will be
exerted to interest its readers with originalty, and enlighten'
with valuable information. We do not indeed expect to
Eroduce. aught 'which thelwdrld will not willing let die?
ut as we are aiding in the purpose which has placed us at
College, on this account we may justly expect encouragement.
To those who take an interest in us personaUy, and to those
who sympathise to any degree in the ends which prompt us,
we appeal unceremoniously and with sure hopes of success.
The Editorial Corps will always consist of six members of
the Senior Class.- The Magazine vfill be Issued monthly,
(excepting January and July,) from the Press of W. D. Cooke,
Raleigh, N. C. To him also all subscriptions and business
communications roust be addressed, (post paid.)

THE NORTH CAROLINA BOOK STORE, conduct

'stands where it did, and is acknowledged by all to contain, a
more general assortment of Literary Material, than any
other Bibliothical Depository, in the Southern country.
It is still conducted by one ot the original Proprietors, than
whom few Bibliopolist's in any country can have more expe
rience in the Book business, A person who has catered for
the Literary world of the Old North State for a quarter of a
century must know what " Books are Books," as Carlisle has
it, and just what the reading public of the Southern country
requires. ', ' ,

SOME idea may be formed of the usefulness of this truly
wonderful Painty and the extent to which it is used, from
the fact, that within a few m mths past, I haw sold upwards
of 5,000 pounds, and have this day ordered 15,000 pounds
more. It has given entire satisfaction, and all who have
houses to paint, will consult their interest by using it. It is
the cheapest and most durable paint ever used. I nave Col
