^ef, must have the.r quiet intervals, though it may be few and fi be- 
tween ; then, perhaps, an old Family Friend may bo welcomed once more, 
and happy times renewed with old familiar faces. 

And now yiewing our past and present performances, as in a lengthened 
tapestry r^ll of the antique fashion, on which industrious Angers worked 
con muously from year to year, we ask our«,lves auxiously-havo we wrought 
wU «„ portmn of our storied web ?-arc the colours as fresh and tasl- 
fullyassorted-the patterns as harmonious, truthful, pure and graphic as 
before ? h oUier words, have we worthily maintdned our fitk tft" 
honoured position we have so long «;cupied in the homes of England ? We 
make no pause for a reply,-that has been given to our highest satisfaction 
m the eoutinued mcrease of our subscribers, and the steadfastness of those 
who^have been with us from the commencement of our long and successM 

Often, when we have reflected on the vast number of readers of intel-

w have inquired what has been the secret of this rare success f^iZl 
on^y solution we eoiUd iind was this-thatwe have been in Jr: ^^^ ot

I. , 

for two years, for the restoration of his 
health. In 1861, he returned to Bombay, 
and was soon after made Brevet-Colonel 
and appointed Quartcrinaster-General and 
then A^'utant-General of the Queen's 
troops in India. These appointments he 
owed to Lord Hardinge, at whose side he 
had fought in the three battles of the 
Sutlej campaign. In the expedition to 
l^ersia, he was appointed to the second 
dmsion, and commanded the troops at 
Mohammerah; but the glory of the ac 
tion at this place was due to the naval 
force. He returned to Bombay at the 
conclusion of the, peace with Persia, and 
embarked in the Urin for Calcutta; but 
he was wrecked in April last, off the coast 
ot Ceylon. Five days afterwards he ob- 
Gained a passage in the Fire Queen, and 
on reaching Calcutta he was sent up to 
Alhihabad as Brigadier-General, to com- 
mand the moveable column, with which 
he has at last, in four decisive actions 
defeated t^e Mahratta fiend, Nena Sahib 
Before the action at Futtehpore com- 
menced, General Havelock thus addressed 
the 78th Regiment:- "Highlanders, 
when we were going to Mohammerah. 
I promised you a field-day. I could not 
give it you then, as the Persians ran awav • 
but Highlanders, we will have it to-day 
and let them see what you are made of' 
Here they routed the enemy, and took 
twelve guns. In the action at Cawnpore. 
on the 16th of July, 1857, the enemy,- 
13 000 strong, with six guns, and Nena 
feahib at their head— were defeated bv 
u P^^^^^l', y^^^ ^'3^ Europeans, and 
f°l^ li?.^'^^'- ^^^"^ *^« tattle, h^ said 
to the 78th,-« Highlanders, I ha^e been 
m fights, and I never saw a 
regiment behave better. I will say more • 
1 never saw a regiment behave so well " 
Ihe account of what he saw when tie took 
possession of Cawnpore cannot be read 
without the deepest feelings of indigna- 
tion and horror. General Havelock's force 
had. in eight days, marched 126 miles, 
tought four battles with Nena Sahib's 
army against overwhelming odds in point 
ot numbers, and taken twenty-four guns, 
all in the month of July in India ' 

The progress of the General to Bhitoor 
(which was found burned to the ground) 

led to the conclusion that Nena Sahib h^A 
been so conipletely deserted and defeated 
that he had committed suicide J but tW» 
has not been confirmed. 
A correspondent of the Timet writes • 

fi,' *t?r ^°'"'" ^^® General for more 
than thirty years, most intimately, and 
«in say with confidence that he has neTer 
baptized anyone; neither, in the strict 
professional sense of the word can he be 
wid to have '.preached.' When he em! 
barked for Burmah in 1824. in company 
with his regiment, his Majesty's 13th 
*oot, he was in the habit of assemblimr 
as many as could be prevailed on to attend 
for devotional exercises, and he occasion- 
ally expkmed the Scriptures to them 
m a brief address. They were allowed to 
assemble at the great Shoey Dagoon pa. 
goda, the glory of Rangoon, and therein 
a chamber fiUed with the cross-leeged 
images of Buddha, might be seen little 
Native lamps placed in the lap of the 
images, and one hundred and more of the 
soldiers of the 13th around Lieutenant 
Havelock. singing the praises of the livinir 
and true God. Independently of the r^ 
hgious benefit of these services, it was a 
most desirable object to keep these men 
trom licentious indulgences in a conquered 
town by the strength of Christian prin- 
ciple. They used to be called ' Havelock's 
bamts; and the General-in-Chief, Sir 
Archibald Campbell, on one occasion of a 
sudd^ alarm at Prome, at night, finding 
It difficult to collect speedily a suflScient 
body of soldiers, ordered the officer to caU 
out 'Havelock's Saints;' 'I can always/ 
said he. 'depend on them-. They, at all 
events, are sober and ready for duty,' 

When he returned to regimental'dnfy 
he continued to attend to the religious 
and moral wants of his Company with 
conscientious care, and assembled them 
as opportunity offered, for religious ser- 
^ vices. Of course some were displeased 
with these * non-military proceedings, as 
they were called, and various communi. 
cations adverse to him were made to the 
Commander-in-Chief, Lord William Ben- 
tmck, and he was described as a strait- 
weed saint, a Dissenter, and withal a 
Baptist. Soon after the Adjutancy of the 
coi-ps became vacant, and Lieutenant

But he did not say this, for Antonv 
was as poor as a church-mouse, and that 
was an objection which Meyer could not

It was mdeed an anxious time; people 
lived as though a thunderstorm darkened 
the sky, and they could scarcely draw 
breath for the sultry air. Thunder came 
at last-war thunder: the enemy broke 
into the land, and fiir and wide terrible 
things were spoken of. In one place they 
had plundered, in another they drove 
away the cattle, burnt down liouses, 
ravaged the helds. and ill-treated the 
inhabitants Our village was for a time

Mario and Antony iceeping close tojro- 
ther, hMtened on witliout Hpowkinff 
Ihey were near the hill when the young 
girl uttered a faint cry and trembled in 
every limb; she saw bayonets gliiten 
although aa yet far ofl'. •' It is the so'- 
diers," .aid Antony, "we mnst get into 
the forest before tliey reaeh the crow, for 
we cannot hide here. Lot ua go a little 
faster, but not run, so n« to keep up our 
•trength." At length thoy had passed 
the lull ; meantime the soldiers had come 
nearer and nearer, and unluckily it was 
M light 08 day, every object was distinctly 
visible. It was impossible that the two 
could reach the forest undetected. They 
heard a loud call. " Now or never i" 
whisporod Antony, and dragged Marie on 
with hnn. Foar quickened their steps 
and they mn as though they had wings. 
1 wo shots were llred, but fell short: and 
in n tew minutes the fugitives were con- 
coaled by the trees. Yet breathless as 
they were, they rested not until thev had 
penetrated fur into the thicket, where 
pursuit was no longer to be dreaded 

Long before this fatal night Meyer had 
huned his money, and most valuable 
property, so that lie had nothing further 
to do but to awaken the neighbours, and 
provide food and drink for tho ter^^ified 
villagers, whereby to keep up their 
courage as much as possible. In a short 
time every one was afoot; but all in 
terror, alarm, and confusion. Each ran 
in the other's way; each hurried to save 
and hide something, whatever he could 
it was as though each ono thought the 
soldiers would carry off all the household 
goods ; beds and bedsteads, chairs, chests, 
ana tables. 

Suddenly the rattle and roll of drums 
was heard, weapons i!a.^ lu', anH the 
enemy inarched into ':} ., v ,] ve, md word 
was given for every lo ,tav quietly 
m-doors. Presently bi'.«3k Prank entered 

a (itu 
in in 

• honse, "Meyer." he said, "now it 1- 

tiostion of life and death. Y„ur ftt " 

my ImtulH. ()iv„ mo y„„r daughter 

and no harm shall \y»M you." ' 

•' .She is not here," wbm the answer. 

Not here," he crlofl. "y„„ lie.. «i,o 

must be here. Don't parley too long, old 

man; one way or the other; you bavo 

no time to deliberate. I muJt know It 

once." "'' 

IIo buiHt open the door of Marie's 
(•lniiiil)er : tho bed was empty. " It ig ,i 

•n ''« 7'«l.«K«in. ••«h«must be here 
I 11 find her ,f I neareh every corner of 
the bouse and every house in the villuKe 
A»d you, Meyer, will have cause to re' 
member this night," 

Black Frank strode away, but in a few 
mmutes returned with a party o" sol 
<l.ers: "That is tho richest nmn i„ the 
village, he said, pointing to Meyer ; "ho 
must pay for all tho rest ; don't let hi„. 

Then the uproar began : " Money 
money," was their cry. Meyer gave 
them what he had, but it was not much 
Ihey were not in the least satisfied, and 
broke open every closet and cofler. to 
search for hidden gold. It was a painful 
sight, to see how they tore overythinff 
out; garments and household linen pre- 
pared as part of Marie's marriage portion • 
the clothes worn by her mother who had ' 
long been dead, all were scattered and 
trampled under foot. Many cherished 
memorials, *hich for years had been care- 
tully preserved, were all at once destroyed 
by the rude handling of the plunderers. 
It cut old Meyer to the heart; yet he 
was obliged to bear it in silence, without 
uttering a word. Tho soldiern flearohed 
every corner, but found nothin > u li u.ey 
wanted, f(,r the money had bem In-iefi 
long before, and lay in the g-u-' ;a nude, 
the pear-tree. 

They stormed more furiously than ever 
would listen to no remonstrance or per- 
suasion, and acted like madmen. Tliey 
snatched Meyer's watch from his pocket 
tore the betrothal ring fVom hfs finger' 
pushed him about with the stocks of their 
muskets, and demanded a large sum of 
money, to be paid down there and then 
on the spot.

In the happy life of cnventeen yean of 
the fair PriuceBS of England, who is jurt 
now an object of eager interest, adinira- 
tion and love to the people of two nations 
— in this hitherto short, hut most brif(ht 
and heautitul life, there is little that can 
be related in the way of a memoir, for it 
is veiled in that domestic privacy in 
which alone the youthful feminine 
character can be rightly developed. The 
Princess Royal was bom in the year of 
the Queen's marriage, November, 2l8t, 
1840, and was welcome<l with enthu- 
eiasm by the English public who regarded 
hor as a new heir to the throne. Her 
christening was celebrated with signal 
grandeur, in the Throne Room of Buck- 
ingham Palace, and many eminent per- 
sons were present who have since passed 
frotn mortal scenes; foremost of these 
were the Queen Dowager, the Duke of 
Wellingttm, Viscount Melbourne, and the 
Ddkes of Sussex and Cambridge. Her 
Iloyal Highness was named Victoria 
Adelaide Maria Louisa, her august 
mother and the Queeil Dowager. The 
Princess was a fair and delicately 
formed girl, and has grown np as charm- 
ing in person as she is accomplished in 
mind; her eyes are blue and of arch ex- 
pression, and her movements are full of 
grace, dignity and ease. In 1841, the 
Prince of Wales was born, and the right 
of succession passed from the Royal 
Princess, but her rank as Princess Royal 
she retains for life. The early years of 
the Princess exliibits many pleasing and 
promising features. 

During one of the cold and stormy 
nights of January 181-3, the little Prin- 
cess was awakened by the loud and 
frequent coughing of some one without, 
and starting up in alarm inquired of her 
sleepy attendant what it was. On being 
informed that it was the sentinel on daty 
on the terrace (Windsor) beneath the 
tower, the Princess observed, "Oh, poor 
fellow, he has got a very bad cough;" 
and after repeated expressions of sorrow 
for the " poor soldier out in the cold," 
again fell asleep. The weather continued 
for several days unfiwom'able, but one

JBometimes amid the darkened sky, 
A beauteous rainbow meets the eye, 
Sparkling amid the drops of rain 
We hail its glorious hues again. 

Emblem of brighter days to oomo, 
When life's sad pilgrimage is done; 
Those glorious tints which gild the sky, 
Kcmind us of our home on high. 

The rainbow, with its colours bright, 
Will soon be hidden from our sight. 
It shows us earthly things decay, 
Wither, and fade, and pass away. 



Hath the past for the«i been teemlnir 
With a bright uucloudod Joy P 
Hath no vai" and Idle dreaming 
Mixed with life, its baso alloy P 
Hath thy days been full of lightness? 
Hiith thy nights Ik'ou ftrec from nirop 
Hath no shuituw dimmed earth's briKhtDcn* P 
Still thou needest to bewunt I 
Happy hours, tw (pdckly fleeting, 
Hoon are nutnlterod with the past; 
Jov and sorrow oft are meeting. 
Like the sunbeam and the blast. 

Art thou one whom grief and sadness, 
Mark for their esiMU-ial prey I 
Doth no cheering beam of gladness, 
Jilght thee on thy toilsome way ? 
Doth no roses with their beauty. 
Hide the thorns that grow beneath? 
Hath not the stern path of duty, 
To adorn it, one bright wreath ? 
Htill, despair not I dark and tlreary, 
Though, may be thy present life; 
'Tis the hearts that never weary, 
Who are victors in the strife. 

Ilalh thy past been full of gladness? 
Nerve thee for the coming strife I 
There are bitter drops of sadness 
Mingled in the eup of life. 
Sorrow is no idle Action, 
But a yoke wo all must share ; 
Yet, remember, in affliction 
When it seemeth hard to bear. 
Sooner, when the storm is strongest, 
Will its fury pass away ; 
When the night hours seem the longest 
Brighter dawns the coming day. 

Hath thy cup of life been freighted 
With a load of grief and scorn P 
Hath thy spirit ever mated 
With the wretched and forlorn P 
Struggle onward, still keep trying, 
Happier days are yet in store. 
Thinlt how quickly time is flying ! 
Think how soon will life be o'erl 
And thv spirit worn and weary 
As the bird, that seeks her nest 
Through the tempest dark and dreary, 
Gladly folds her wings to rest I 
Thou Shalt see the sunbeams waking 
From the slumbers of the night. 
And the stormy darkness breaking 
Into floods of heavenly light !

Pab, far below the dashing wave, 

The costliest pearls abide ; 
Deep in the caverns of the earth. 

The brightest diamonds hide; 
And so 'tis in the human heart 

The noblest thoughts lie deep. 
Like gems that hidden from the Ugbt, 

Unknown, unvalued sleep.

THB Mazb. — The instructions for this seasonabie 
flrefiide amusement are as follow :— Tlio Traveller 
must enter at the opening at the foot, and mu8t 
pass between the Imett forming tlio road to the 
Castle in tiie -niddle. There are no bars in the 
route : one rord crosses another by means of a 
bridge, bo that cure must be taken that, in follow- 
ing' the route, the traveller does not stray iVom 
one road to another, and thus lose the track. For 
instance, on enterlnp, he will have to pass under 



This substitute for a Christmas tree, if not so 
elegant, yet generally causes more amusement 
Iho presents intended for distribution, shoulri 
each be wrapped in paper and placed in a plato 
basket. This must be Hlled with bran. Each ol 
the company, with a largo spoon, dive by turns 
into the bran and whatever they draw up, is their's 
Often the spoon is found to contam nothing but 
bran, and the unlucky person loses his turn

a bridge of another road crossingr over his 
path : in continuing the route he will next pass 
over a bridge crossing another road; and thus 
continue his course. A little practice will ac- 
eustom the traveller to the method of the Maze. 
It is not a fair test of the merits of the Maze to 
tommenoe from the centre ; but the traveller will 
be at full liberty, wh»n he has entered the Castle, 
to get out again if he can. 


The players shoiM stand in a ring, holdinz | 
hands. In the middle, put a hassock turned i 
one end. The object of the game is, by pullinj I 
and pushing your iieighbours as you run round I 
the mat, to make them overturn it, and to avoid 
doing it yourself. If any: one upsets it, he is out 
of the game. The players go on till there is on); | 
one left ,and this one is the winner of the game.
