H bile we had been at work, the other boats had not la-en idle. When our Whale reappeared from his first in.nl plunge, the whole school had sur rounded hint. or. in whaler's parlance, 'brought to." for there is a deal of honest sympathy in a school of sperm whale.

Much Interest ha lately been rcK ed by tite discoveries of Mr. toyard. tla? enterprising explorer of Assyrian antiquities. The most remarkable re sults have rewarded Ids sagacious and persevering rescaa'lies. Along the T gri. for many miles, lie a auccesaion of vast mounds, which have long been considered as tla; remains of the mighty city of Nineveh. So great is the ex tent of these ruins that it renders in telligible (lie account of the prophet lonah. who proceeded "into, tlie city a day's journey" before commencing his fearful mission. At Konyenjik and at Nhnrod, (whose very name seems to recall the founder of the Assyrian empire), the most Interesting discoveries reuaid tlie zeal of the anlkinartan. At theHrtter place, the remains of a beaw dam. built of heavy masonry, still obstructs lla river, and the tradition of the na tives still aserilies its construction to Ximrod. Having commenced his ex cavations, the lalwrs of Mr. Layard were soon rewarded by the discovery and exhumntioii of an enormous wing ed lyou. with a liiunan head, sculptur ed in alabasteri "It was in admirable pinservatioii. Tlie expression was calm, yet majestic, and the outline of the feiitures showed a freetlom and knowledge of art scarcely to be looked for in the works of so remote a period, I was not surprised that the Anhs had been amaed and terrified at this ap parition. It required no stretch of im agination to conjure up the omst strange fancies. This gigantic head, blanched wltll age, tlnis rising from the bowels of the earth, might Well have belonged to one of those fearful beings which are pictured in tim tradi tions of the country as appealing to mortals, slowly ascending from tlie regions below. As the work was steadily pursued, twentv-eighf balls aud galleries, tilled witli the wonderful remain of this strange species of civilization, were gradually brought to light. Tlie rii coverer was -oon able "to behold ehatulior alter chamber, hall after ball, unfold themselves, as it wen1, from the bosom of the earth, aud assume siiiij. dimensions, height. ; to Watch the reliefs which line tlie walls cradu ally disclosing tladr forms. As the rubbish cleared away, the afcge aud the Isittle and the hunting piece lav coming more atal more distinct ; aud the king wearing more inuiiiirsuy tie loftv tiara, ami displaying hi undoubt ed svuilatl of royalty ; tlie attitude of the "priest proclaiming hi otlice, some times his form and features, his imper fect and eflemliiate manliooa: tin walls of tlie besieged cities rearing their battleuieuts, the combatants grappling in mortal struggle ; Hie norses curvi t iinr: tlie long procession stretching out. slab after slab, with tin; trophic of victory or the offering of devotion ; above all, tlie huge symbolic aunnais, the bulls or lions, sometimes slowly sinmvliiiL' into liclit In their natural form, sometimes developing in their human heads, their outspread wings; their downward jalrts in their gigan tic but iiM orooortious lieavh ig off, aa it might seem the encumbering earth." . , , Many of the w alls were painted in dazzling colors, and everywhere stat ues, reliefs and symbolic ornaments met the eye. Tlie entire construction and arrangement of an ancient Assy rian palace were disclosed.

Many curious and elaborately carved ornaments of ivory were found in a tnierable state of oreservatiou, and. by a peculiar process, were restored to thoir formensmditlon. long incri( tions, explanatory of tlie varlouseveiits recorded in stone, liave been carefully copied aial engage tlie attention of an tiquarians. Tlie list of a succession of kings lias been detected by Mr. Iy ard; and in his more recent excava tion, a chamber has been discovered, in which tablets ol terra cotta, covered with Inscriptions, were piled in great numbers. Jt is confidently liopod that tte history of a large portion of man kind, which for many ages bail appar ently perished, may thus la; recovered, and especially that the great chasm in Assyrian events, which has so long puzzled bltorlai, may be filled up. A most remarkable correspondence has la-en discovered between these senfot tired representations and those on the monuments of Kgvpt, so long the only rival tunable ol competing ling the number. Apparently the most ancient monu- inent yet discovered In Nineveh Is an obelisk of black marbte. on which are sculptured figures of tlie elcpUut, the rhinoceros and a tribe of monkeys; thus forcibly carrying lack tlie mind to tlie time of Somlrauils, aud to her Eastern Irophies, or perhaps those of her successors.

In these "mountains of brick rubbish'' lie whelmed the walls, the palaces, and tlie hanging gardens which once reared themselves so splen didly on the banks ol the Tigris ami Kuphrntes. The present inhabitants of this once renowned region, tire mostly ignorant Arabs, governed by their almost equal ly ignorant and bigoted masters, the Turks, Kvery obstacle (probably with a view to extortlouj was at first placed in the way ol the enterprising discov erer. At one time he wa stopped, by order of the paslia, under pretext that he was disturbing, by his excavation-, the tomb' of the "true lsdievers." The appearance of a cemetery was certainly found, hut. as It proved, con structed by the order of the wilv gov ernor himself. "Daoud Agha, says Mr. nhyard, "confessed to me on our way that he hall received orders to make graves on the mound, and that his troops bad la'eu employed lor two nljrhts in bringing stones from distant Villages for that purpose. 'We hive destroyed more mil tombs of tlie true qPevcrs,' said la', 'in making sham ones, than you could have denied be tween the Zab and Selainlyah. We have killed our horses and ourselves in carrying those accursed stones.' " A Killing Widow. A Pennsylvania paper tells of a cu riously fat.il widow, a native of Wash ington, hi that Shite. Kngaged for marriage in lil to a young man named Roberts, a clerk in her mercan tile lather's warehouse, she was so ef fectually discouraged from tlie alliance by paternal threats and pride a to discard the clerk tit, last and give her band to a gentleman lioasting Ills own carriage, fly a kind of poetTc justice, AJtarbut three short months of wed lock, the rich hiisliiitiil died of a kick from his favorite "back." and bis young wife's face looked prettily out upon the world again through a wid ow's Weeds, ".NOW," thought the clerk, Roberts, "is my time to try again. I'l'ovldenco favors my con stancy, and I inu-l court the widow." Alter two year i if coy strategy be was (loomed to thai Ills lady-love engaged to another once more. The second marriage took place, and in a year aud n half thereafter the happy pair removed to Syracuse, w here epidemic cholera promptly made the lady a widow again. Roberts, slid in Iris Washington clerkship, beard tlie news and experienced a revival of knightly courage. For a third (hue would he seek the bewitching prize ; with more siccd, but not less circumspectly than before. His plan was to let just one year of the small mourning elapse, and then write the lair mourner a terse but anient offer of his hand and heart At the end of a twelvemonth be did write tints, and bis answer was an invitation to attend the wedding of tlie widow with her late husband's business partner. The lady, not long after Ihe ceremony, departed with lier liege lonl for Delrolt, Michigan. 1'wo or three years passed away, and husband anil wife were on a steamer which went down in a terrible winter StOrm near Itulfalo. Amongst the many lives lo-t was that of the hus band : but by the gallantry and g'toil swimming of a rich young merchant from Pittsburg, lias widow bad her sorely Imperiled life preserved to her, and in a very few months afterward he evinced her gratitude to her gallant preserver by marrying him. It was a foregone conclusion, of course, that the deadly lady should survive Ibis gentleman, too. One day a tierce of rice falling through a holstway in Iris store killed the nietvliant of 1'ittsburg like a rat. Among those attracted Irom the street by the catastrophe was Roberts, who had come fron N ashing- ton on business and chained to he passing at tla1 time, simultaneously the oft-baffled wooer realized his new hope, and that a fleet clerk -had already started to apprize the bereaved wife of her fourth widowhood, lie- solved not to be beaten again, and by a lerk. he tore frantically away toward the home of his old love, at breakneck peed, and readied the fatal presence in advance ot all other messengers. He was recognized, told the lady of laT loss, and l'gged to be considered her truest and most constant friend oil earth. So he won her at last, and they were married within a year, the frightful warning of the deaths of bis ill-lated predecessors having bad no inure effect upon him than it lie and they were '"very different people."

There I so much eroneom belief oil this subject, that we deem il a tilting one to expatiate upon. And perhaps, at the outset, we shall startle Most person by the assertion tint many men with heart disease cany it forty and fifty years, and then die ftoill some other cause entirely. That a man has this tuTectloii. does not imply, as many suppose, that he is "of few days, ami full of trouble." Often times it is of no trouble at all, even when seriously diseased, aud it may he carried for many a year, with titi' tlie same lack of gymptOtlM, if care is taken in the general habits of life. Heart diseases are incurable as i general ride. They are beyond tlie reach of medicine, ju-t the same as an amputated limb is beyond the reach of medicine to make it 'grow out again. Most affections of this organ are due to some accident or disease of the valves. It is a pump in matter of fact, aud pumps bloisl to dlfl'creut parts of 4t body, as any other pump would do if aininged properly, and placed in the same po-ltlon and It valves are ju-t as liable to get out of order as any metal pump would be. If It could be gotten at, and these ini pertcclious ami accidents attended to, it could all be made speedily well again ; but it cannot, and it is there fore just a useless to attempt to cure by the use of medicine, as it would Im to do-e a cistern pump with oil and poultices, arid expect n recovery when it got a little out of Older. All thai can bo done Is to prevent It Iroiu get ting wor-e put up with what you have, and tllUIlk goodness you've got no more ; and v I i is only aecomplfili od by strict attention to such rules a obviate the exciting causes. Anything which excites the heart to increases! action, has n tendency to induce di-ea-e. j tit a- anything which abuses a metal pump will soon make il useless. Violent Ireaksiof pas-ion; severe and long continued exertion; the intemperate use of alcoholic stimu lant) I'lcll food and HotOIH living, i.e., are common causes, as are also certain diseases over which Individu als have no immediate Control. I he life day by day, therefore, of an Indi vidual with disease of the bear', should be tlu) inotlel of soberness and propriety. He should lite cautious live low, live temperate, lie should take only the most nutritious and di gestive (bod, and that in quantities only sufficient for his. sustenance, lb should avoid late hours and over ex crclse, and. in fact, should do nothing, mentally or physically, that would !.i any way interfere with his vanillic ap paratus. This is indispensable, all of it, to bis continued existence. The more religiously be attends to it the longer he may live; the less ho at tends to it, the shorter is his carth'y career. lint some one may say, heart dis eases are not always of o little con sequence, and are oi'ten attended with serinu- dropsy, and general discom fort and misery. These are ju-t lite cases wliera Improper nude of living Is bringing things to a finale, and no one need ever attain that stage if lie "knows himself," and takes a stltcll in time. Wat's '.v. Name? A Frenchman, a stranger in New Vork, -topped a lad in the street, and politely asked : "Mon friend, wat's ze name of i st reel:-" "Well, who said it wasn't?" re plied Ihe boy.
