Fhencii Revolution of 1830 and 18J8. Striking
Paballel. We find in an English journal the fol
lowing striking parallel between the revolution of
July, 1830, and tho present events the revolution of
"Tho most remarkable coincidences are noticed be
tween this and the famous three days' revolution of
July, 1830. ,
"On Sunday, July 25, 1830, the ministers Charles
X. presiding decided upon the famous and obnoxious
laws against the freedom of the press.
"On Sunday, February 19th, lsw, the ministers of
Louis Phillippe decided to oppose the reformist
"On Monday, 26th July, i830, the ordonnances were
published, which, stupified all Paris. Tho press en
tered their protest.
"On Monday, 21st February, if the liberal party,
headed by Barrot protested against the measures to
oppose the banquet.
"On Tuesday, July 27th, "W- the exasperation of the
Parisian population was at its highth. Crowds assem
bled, and cries of "Vive la Chartel" "Abas les
Minislresl" were heard. At half past 4 P. M.; thero
was a collision between the people and the troops at
the corner of Rues St. Honorend Richelieu, and bar
riers were raised.
"On Tuesday, February 22d, isis, crowds collected,
and the cry was "Vive la Reforme!" "A bas Guizot!"
The struggle again commenced at the corner of Rues

cated in favor of his grandson.
"In the midst of the Chamber of Deputies, sur
ro.inded by the people, a voice saysjof the abdication
It is too late. These same words were used by Odi
lim Barret to Charles X. Here the coincidence ceases.

A Happv Illustdation. Elder Enapp, in speaking
of the prevailing tendencies Of some religionists to
long prayers, remarked that we could find no example
for these in the scriptures. The prayers our Saviour
were short and to the point. The prayer of the peni
tent publican was a happy specimen. When Peter
was endeavoring to walk upon the waters, to meet
his Master, and was about sinking, had his dupli
cation 1)een as long as the introduction to one of our
modern prayers, before he got half through, he would
have beea fifty feet aider water!
The Wihb. With what a spirit-like voice does the
wind soar over and haunt 'this earth its earliest
hymn is low, soft, and holy, like'the breahting of an
infant in l dream but its tones awaken soon to lou
der echoiugs, and all the spirits of toe airrejoice a
round it with the loud shoutings of an aerial hosannab.
Thus it goes on careering from one boundary to the
other of the realms of space, rejoicing with a .great
an exceeding joy in the wild and untiring swiftness
of its flight. But ft balk also a voice 'for the storms,
wild savage and lonely -screaming and shrieking and
shattering the wearied air with the terror and wo of
its mighty blastings.
An Indian's Joke. In the time of Indian troubles,
a friendly Indian visited the house of Gov. Jenks, of
Rhode Island, when the Governor took occasion to
request him, if any strange Indian should come to
his wigwam, to let him know it. This the Indian
promised to do, and the Governor told him that
when he should give such information, he mould
give him a mug of flip. Some lime aftt r the Indian
came again, and or meeting the Governor said "Mr.
Gubernor, ctrange Indian come to my house last
night." "Ah!" -says the Governor, "what did he
say?" "He no speak," replied the Indian. "What,
not speak at all?" inquired the Governor. "He n
speak at all." "That looks suspicious," said his ex
cellency, -and-inquired if he were there still. Being
told that he was, the Governor ordered the promised mug
of flip. When this was disposed of, and the Indian wag
about to depart, he mildly said "Mr. Guberner, my
fiquaw hab child last night," and the Governor, finding
the strange Indian was a new born papoose, was glad to
tfind no cause of alarm.
