.mecdoio of old Governor Levereit,
as an illustration of liie force of
courage and ingenuity upon a mad
One morning, many years ago. a
'tout, burly built maniac in a parox
ysm of insanity, burst oul of the
asylum, and ou bis way, a musket,
heavily loaded, tell into iiis hands.
Willi ibis formidable weapon, mount
ed with the terrible bayonet, ibe
madman rushed out into the city,
and pretty effectually cleared the
.-treels as he wns marching along.—
Turning a corner, lie suddenly came
upon Governor Levereit, and was
ort the point of making a point blank
charge upon the vitals of the old
governor, who comprehending his
danger, in a single glance at ihe old
fellow, and drawing himself up
square and firmly before his dread
ful antagonist, he hailed him thus.
“Ho! brotner soldier, have you
learned your exercise ?”
“Yes, I have!” said the fellow
with a terrible oath.
“Then, brother said the Govern
or, ‘stand io your arms, like a vigi
lant soldier, while I give the word
The madman seemed pleased
and stood bolt upright, with his mus
ket fitted close t > his shoulder m
regular drill order.
“Poise your firelock !” The fel
low did so. “Rest your firelock.”
The fellow obeyed. “Ground your
firelock.” This he did. “Face to
ihe right about, march,” says tin
governor, and the madman wheeled
and stepped away. The governor,
quickiy rm up behind him, seized
the powerful fellow and the musket,
and held him until several lookers-
on—standing a a safe distance and
waU hing this curious scene—came
to ;he governor’s assistance, and the
madman was carried back in an aw
ful rage, to his quarters.
The anecdote reminds us of a
similar one, that happened to the fa
raous Dr. Physic, an eminent medi
cal man, now dead and gone, or
Philadelphia. The doctor was a
visiting physician at the lunatic asy
lum, near that city ; and one morn
ing alter going ms rounds among ihe
patients of ihe institution, the doctor
strolled up s'aits into the top g dle-
iy of the large rotunda of the ouild
ing, to view mu* chy and surround
ing country. While absorbed in
the view from his high elevation, *
robust madman, wh*> had eluded
his keepers, came suddenly upon ihe
doctor, to his no little astonishment
and bodily iear. But keeping pei-
teelly coo!, be bid the maniac “good
day,” and was turning about to go
“No, you don’t,” said the man,
clutching the doctor firmiy as a
vice, “I want you io show me some
thing ; they say you do everything :
cutoff heads, legs, and arms; put
them together, take a man all apart,
and mend him up as good as ever ;
and 1 know you can, too, but I want
you just to jump dow r n this hole, (the
opening of the rotunda, surrounded
by the long spiral stairway,) away
on the pavement. Come on—do it
you must!” And the fellow exerted
himself to drag the doctor up to ihe
railing, to which the poor doctor
dung with the tenacity of a tick.—
The moment was one of peril to the
doctor, but his presence of mind com
pletely floored his antagonist.
“It would not be very hard for
me to jump down there, sir,” said
the doctor; “but lean do a greater
feat than that for you, if you wish to
see rne try.”
“Can you, eh, old fellow ? Well,
try it. What is it?”
“Why, sir, I will go down there
to the bottom, and with one spring,
sir, i’ll jump clear up here.”
“Ha ! ha !” laughed the maniac ;
“that would be worth seeing; go
down, doctor and jump up—l’llcatch
you when you come up.”
The doctor lost no lime in going
down, and sending up the keepers,
who nabbed the poor deluded man.

A Fish Story.
The last fish story comes from
New Jersey. Lately, in the inferior
of lint Slate, a mild looking coun
tryman entered a railway car, hear
ing a bundle lied up in a handker
chief, which lie placed under the
seat at the end of the car. After
traveling along for about half an
hour, a lady silting in fr n of ibe
countryman was observed to move
uneasily on her seal, and to cast
savage glances at a seemingly res
pectable man sitting by her side. In
a few’ minutes another lady, still fur
ther to the front, “became uneasy,”
and at last, rising in her seat, le
quested some gentleman would pro
tect her from an elderly looking gen
tleman bv her side, and whom she
slated .had insulted hei. A dozen
persons offered tluir assistance, and
before the accused could speak in
his own defence, Lis hat was jammed
over his eves, and he was dragged
to the rear of the car. While there,
and carrying on with the avengers
a war of words as to what the in-
dignity meant, still another la ly rose
iIso seated further up the car, and
accused a gentleman sitting behind
her with improper conduct. A rush
was made for insuher number two,
but ’hat g' ntlema i vigorously de
fended himself with a large walking
stick he happen* d to have (and
T’hich, by the bv, was one cause of
the last troubles, his accuser staling
ihat he had indecorously been rap
ping her ankles under the seat with
ilie same,) and while the struggle to
get at him was suit in progress,
somebody in lire front of the -car
shouted, “There’s a snake on the
floor!” A scene then ensued. The
ladies in the car clambered up o*i
the seats, and many got on the arms
and hacks of the same. One elder
ly maiden managed to stand on the
backs of two seats in the best circus
manner possible under the circum
stances, while a young mother threw
her baby into a parcel rack, and
then hung convulsively to a ventila
tor. The confusion awoke the coun
tryman, who, on being told of the
snake, first felt in Iris bundle, and
then exclaimed, “I’m blamed if that
old eel haini got loosestarted for
the front, and soon returned, grasp
ing firmly an immense eel, which lie
had caught while out fishing, hut
which, when brought into the car,
had managed to get out of the bun
dle, and had wended its way to the
Iront, lovingly caressing the differ
ent varieties of ladies’ garters which
he encountered on the way. Apol
ogies given and received, straight
ened everything in that car but the
hat that was jammed down, and the
countryman leaving at the next sta
tion, no blood was drawn.
The Lesson of Life.—Of all the
lessons that humanity has to learn,
the hardest is to learn to wait. Not
to wait with folded hands that
claim life’s prizes without previ
ous effort, but having struggled
and crowded the slow years
with trial, see no result as effort
seems to warrant—nay, perhaps,
disaster instead. To stand firm at
such a crisis of existence, to preserve
one’s self-poise and self respect, not
to lose hold or relax effort, this is
greatness, whether achieved by man
or woman—whether the eye of the
world note3 if, or it is recorded in
the book, which the light of eternity
shall alone make clear to the vision.
Those who stand on the high places
of the earth understand not what
necesity, what suffering means.—
They know not what it is to a noble
mmd to be obliged, like the worms,
to crawl upon ltie earth for nourish
ment, because it has not strength to
endure famine. Lite moves around
them with so much grace, splendor
and beauty; ihey drink life’s sweet
est wine, and dance in a charming
intoxication. They find nothing with
in them thiii can enable them to un
derstand the real sufferings of the
poor; they love only themselves, and
look at mankind only in their own

The following anecdote, extracted
(from unpublished memoirs of a
French nobleman, may, it is hoped,
serve as an example, well worthy of
| being imitated by all who desire to
bethought truly brave and coura
geous. It records an instance of a
victory gained by a man over his
own passions—a victory more glo
rious, more honorable than any that
has ever been purchased with fire
and sword, with devastation and
Two noblemen, the Marquis de
Valaise and the Count de Meric,
were educated under the same mas
ters, and were regarded by ail who
knew them as patterns of friendship,
honor and sensibility. Years suc
ceeded years, and no quarrel had
ever disgraced their attachment,
when, one unfortunate evening, the
two friends having indulged rather
freely in some excellent burgundy,
repaired to a neighboring hotel, and
engaged in a game of backgammon.
Fortune declared herself in favor of
the Marquis; be won eveivgame,
and in thoughtless gice of die mo
ment, laughed with exultation at his
unusual good luck. The Count lost his
temper, and unco oriwico u (J Lr«i;|,- }
Marquis for enjoying the pain which
he had excited in the bo- m *f his
friend. At last, upon another I*>r£..-
nate throw made by the Marquis, by
which lie gammoned his antagonist,
the infuriated Count threw the box
and dice in the face of his brother
Every gentleman present wms in
amazement, arid waited almost
on aihL sly lor the moment when
the Marquis would sheathe his sword
in the bosom ol the now repentant
“Gentlemen,” said the Marquis,
“I am a Frenchman, a soldier and a
friend. 1 have received a blow from
a Frenchman, a so'dier and a friend.
I know and acknowledge ihe laws of
honor, and 1 will obey th< m. Eve

education was me same, our princi
ples are alike, and our friendship
(fates from our earliest years. Bui,
Frenchmen, I will obey the laws of
honor and of France; I will stab
