The Perils ol (he Whale fishery.
A wires poiHlt'lit writes : We are

my breast, while Ite long blade quiver

Htill the other boat gaiued creeping
slowly abreast of us.

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

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. "Three
great edifices of diUereut neriiHk
adorned by sculpture ot different
characters one at tlie northwestern
corner, one la tlie center and one to
the aoutlieast revealed to Uie light of
dav tlie Nineveh nerhansof NilUKaud

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.

palaces, and tlie hanging gardens
which once reared themselves so splen
didly on the banks ol the Tigris ami

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."
(.ood Kl'l.ES h at ALL. Profane

Heart niteaae.
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

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
