the school called Lowood in “Jane Eyre”; their tempers were hardened and sharpened by poverty and the white slave’s life of the governess, so much dreaded and so well understood by Miss Austen’s Jane Fairfax in “Emma”. The unhappy Branwell, in the end, haunted the rectory, an awful presence of intellect degraded, and while Emily wrapped herself up in a kind of Christian stoicism, Charlotte was left to the contrast between the dreams of her fiery genius, and the facts of her narrow life. In 1842 Charlotte and Emily became inmates of the school of Monsieur and Madame Heger at Brussels, which later afforded to Charlotte the scene and two characters in “Villette”. 鏉窞鍝佽尪缇や笂璇?In 1846 the three sisters published “Poems, 鏉窞钀у北澶滅綉 by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell”. Of this book two copies were sold, of the poems Emily’s alone are still admired for their sombre energy and resolute spirit.
The sisters now wrote novels, Emily, “Wuthering Heights,”[Pg 624] Charlotte, “The Professor”; Anne, “Agnes Grey”. In August, 1846, Charlotte began “Jane Eyre,” which, when finished, came into the hands of Thackeray’s publishers, Messrs. Smith & Elder, and filled them with amazement and enthusiasm. The book appeared in autumn, 1847, pleased Lockhart, then editor of “The Quarterly Review,” no less than it pleased Mr. Smith, and at once became the “daughter of debate,” discussed everywhere, praised and reviled, and, in some unintelligible way, most reviled by “The Quarterly”. The critic detected in the author an unregenerate, 鏉窞鎸夋懇鏀荤暐 violent rebel against society, and a woman who was 鏉窞鍝佽尪缃?a dishonour to her sex! Certainly鈥?
A wounded human spirit
Here on its bed of pain.
The unparalleled vigour and genius of the early scenes, the cruelties which the lonely child supports with unconquered spirit, were things new in fiction, while the repressed passion of the plain yet seductive governess during the wooing of the too Byronic Mr. Rochester, and in a house as terrible as the castle of Mrs. Radcliffe’s “Sicilian Romance,” excited a lively romantic interest, accompanied by a tendency to smile at an ignorant imagination. Borrowed romance combined 鏉窞鏈€澶ф礂娴翠紤闂蹭細鎵€ with instinctive realism, bitter experience blended with the day-dreams of a life, a frankness long forgotten by early Victorian fiction, made the novel a strange and triumphantly successful combination. That mentor of young novelists, George Lewes, recommended to the author the study of Miss Austen, whose novels Charlotte Bront? was not happy enough (because she never had been happy) to appreciate. That she had no humour we cannot say, but she had none of the kindly humour of her great predecessor.
Meanwhile “Wuthering Heights,” that strange and strenuous study of violent characters, was eclipsed by “Jane Eyre,” though it has now come to its own, thanks to the appreciations of Mr. Matthew Arnold and Mr. Swinburne. The author did not live to find herself famous; Anne Bront? also died, leaving their sister in deeper solitude. Charlotte’s 鏉窞spa鐖借 “Shirley” (1849), with its caricatures of the local curates, caused the discovery of her authorship: the curates were forgiving, and
ual to one of his own best jokes. Slavery was a thing he did not then want to have disturbed. He discountenanced all radical agitators of the subject, and especially in the border slave States, where he was 杭州桑拿价格 able to hold them pretty well in check, except in Missouri. There they stood up and fought him, and in the end beat him. One of the rather curious results of this condition of things was that, when the States came to action on the Thirteenth Constitutional 杭州419 Amendment, the one absolutely abolishing slavery, the three border slave States of Kentucky, Maryland, and Delaware, over which the President’s influence was practically supreme, gave an adverse vote of four to one, while Missouri, with whose radical emancipationists he had continuously been at loggerheads, ratified the amendment by a 杭州有名的推拿针灸中医 legislative vote of one hundred and eleven ayes to forty nays.
Nevertheless, notwithstanding the President, at the beginning of his official term, opposed Anti-Slavery agitation and Anti-Slavery action with all his might, he promptly faced about 杭州洗浴按摩全套是什么 as soon as he discovered that the subject was one that would not “down.” No one ever worked harder to find a solution of a difficult problem than he did of the slavery question. He began to formulate plans to that end, the most distinguishing feature, 杭州龙凤交友 however, being the spirit of compromise by which they were pervaded. All of them stopped before an 杭州保健按摩服务 ultimatum was reached. Besides his proclamation, which, as we have seen, applied to only a part of the slaves, he devised a measure that would have been applicable to all of them. In his special message of December, 1863, he proposed to 杭州品茶推荐 Congress the submission of a constitutional amendment that would work universal liberation. There were conditions, however. One was that the slaves should be paid for by the Government; another that the masters might retain their uncompensated services 杭州西湖区男士养生spa until January 1, 1900; that is, for a period of thirty-seven years, unless they were sooner emancipated by the grave, as the most of them would be.
The President’s somewhat fantastic proposition was not claimed by him to be for the bondman’s benefit. He urged it as a measure of public economy, holding that, as slavery was the 杭州洗浴中心过夜 admitted cause of the Rebellion, the quickest and surest way to remove that cause would be by purchase of all the slaves, which, he insisted, “would shorten the war, and thus lessen the expenditure of money and blood.”
The public did not take 杭州四季酒店水疗 to the President’s plan at all, especially the Abolitionists did not. They no more favored the buying of men by the Government than by anybody else. They held that if the master had no right to the person of his bondman, he had no right to payment for 杭州水磨浴全套 him. And as for an arrangement that might prolong slaveholding for thirty-seven years, they saw in it not only a measure of injustice to the men, women, and children then in servitude, the most of whom would be doomed to bondage for the rest of their natural lives, but a possible plan for side-tracking a genuine freedom movement.

HOME SCENE NEAR THE LAKE.
There are several varieties of fish in the fresh-water lakes of the Valley of Mexico, but in the salt or brackish Lake Tezcoco there is only one kind, and some people think he is not 杭州男士养生SPA entitled to be called a fish. He is shaped like one, but has four legs and a long, eel-like tail. He belongs more properly to the lizard family than to that of the fishes, and is a disgusting object to contemplate. He grows to about ten inches in length. Frank thought 杭州丝袜会所门店 he should go hungry a long time rather than eat of this reptile, who is called axolotl in the Aztec
tongue, and ajolote by the Spaniards.
“Does anybody venture to eat this creature?” Fred asked.
“Certainly,” answered his informant; “the Indians eat its flesh, which resembles that of an eel. White men who have got over their prejudice say it is toothsome, and many a stranger has devoured axolotl under the name of fried eel, and enjoyed it too.”
“There’s a great deal in a name and in prejudice,” was the youth’s commentary as he changed the subject to something else.
That 杭州美容院排行榜 something was a peculiar article of food even stranger than axolotl. Its scientific name is Ahuatlea Mexicana, and it consists of the eggs of a peculiar fly, which are deposited on the reeds and rushes growing in the shallow places along the borders of the lake. A traveller 杭州洗浴按摩特服 who visited Mexico two and a half centuries ago wrote of this substance as follows:
“The Indians gathered much of this and kept it in Heaps, and made thereof Cakes like unto Brick-bats, and they did eat this with as good a Stomach as we eat Cheese; yea, and they hold Opinion that this Scum, or 杭州桑拿按摩体验 Fatness, of the Water is the Cause that such great number of Fowl cometh to the Lake, which in the winter Season is infinite.”
Custom has not changed in two hundred and fifty years. They sell these “cakes like unto brick-bats” in the markets of Mexico to-day, and the 杭州spa养生会所 Indians eat the stuff with good relish. It bears some resemblance to fine fish-roe; and after all, prejudice again being removed, and one being hungry, it is not bad eating. The Indians gather these insects by myriads and pound them into paste, which is afterwards wrapped in 杭州桑拿ml corn-husks, and forms an article of food second only to the one just mentioned. The laying capacity of the insect, which is about the size of an ordinary fly, is something marvellous, surpassing the abilities of the choicest fowls that ever were reared.
A DEAD FLY.
“You may judge how abundant these 杭州水疗会所 insects are,” said Frank, “when
I tell you they settle down so thickly on the water that we thought they were shoals, or mud-banks! Fortunately for us, they didn’t sting, nor did they even settle on the boat.”
In one of his letters to the King describing the 杭州足浴过夜 country he had conquered Cortez gave a minute account of the lakes in the neighborhood of Tenochtitlan, and naturally mentioned the fact that they had no outlet. He solved the mystery of the disappearance of the wate
the manner of the young legal d茅butant; they could detect nothing of the sort. He made his opening speech with consummate clearness and composure; and 鏉窞妗戞嬁娲嬪 he examined and cross-examined witnesses, quoted authorities, took exceptions, and made points, with a quiet
ease, and even, at times, with a touch of listlessness, that argued excellent training and profound knowledge.
Perhaps his quietude of manner was the more 鏉窞瓒崇枟鎸夋懇涓嶆瑙勭殑 perfect, that a slight cloud hung on his brow, all through the two days of the trial; though his observers were too little acquainted with the wonted expression of his face to discover it. Not till he rose to make his final speech did the shadow lift. Then, indeed, the spectators noticed 鏉窞榫欏嚖濞变箰鍦板浘璁哄潧 a change. He had spoken but a few sentences, when his eyes kindled, his brow cleared, his voice gathered fulness and melody, he forgot himself and his doubt in the glow of an irresistible inspiration, in the glad exercise of a natural gift of oratory so wondrous, so unexpected, and so potent,鏉窞妗戞嬁鎸夋懇濂崇収鐗? that court and spectator were alike taken by storm. Only in dim tradition had such a speech ever been heard in that court room,鈥攕o fluent, so animated, so skilfully throwing an ideal grace around dry, bare legal facts, without dimming their outline or destroying 鏉窞鍏荤敓浼氭墍鍝鏈嶅姟濂?their logical connection. People held their breath to listen, unwilling to lose one delicate shade of thought, one fit, luminous expression. Two or three times, the judge was forced to suppress outbursts of applause, in which, nevertheless, his pleased and interested face concurred; and 鏉窞榫欏嚖璁哄潧Vip when Bergan took his seat, gray-headed lawyers stretched their hands across the table in hearty congratulation.
A verdict for his client was almost immediately rendered. Then he stepped out into the crowd, to be met on all sides by extended hands and enthusiastic compliments. People that had always studiously avoided him, now sought to catch his eye; gentlemen who had never vouchsafed him more than a stiff nod, now waited to give him a friendly hand-grasp and a few congratulatory words. One of the magnates of the neighborhood publicly stamped him, 鏉窞鍏荤敓spa as it were, with the seal of his high approbation, by engaging him for a few moments in conversation, and then parting from him with an intimation that he might expect an early invitation to dinner.
Turning away from the dog-day smile of this personage,鈥攍ate and sultry,鈥擝ergan encountered 鏉窞瓒虫荡鎸夋懇浼氭墍 the meaning gaze of a pair of blear eyes.
“Sudden change of weather,” remarked Dick Causton, dryly. “‘it never rains but it pours.’ You are in a heavy shower, Mr. Arling.”
And with unwonted consideration, Dick waited till Bergan had passed on, before he muttered, “In 鏉窞娲楁荡娑堣垂 picciol tempo passa ogni gran pioggia,鈥攁 heavy shower is soon over.”
Dr. Remy came next. “I never sing in chorus,” said he, shrugging his shoulders, and putting his hands behind him; “I shall keep my compliments for a day of dearth. But what a weathercock is public opinion!”
Yet the 鏉窞瓒虫荡娌瑰帇璁哄潧change was not altogether so sudden and radical as it appeared. Bergan’s upright, independent course of conduct, so quietly persisted in, throu
od. David says to God, 鈥楾hy rod 鏉窞澶滅敓娲昏鍧?19 and thy staff are my help,鈥?or words to that effect鈥攎anifest metaphor. My rabbi shewed me a Jewish paraphrase of Jacob鈥檚 words, 鈥業 had neither gold, nor silver, nor herds, but simply my staff.鈥?He also told me that this 鈥榮taff鈥?was supposed by the Jews to have been given by God to Adam from whom it descended to the patriarchs 璐垫棌瀹濊礉鏉窞榫欏嚖 in succession. This shews that Jews might find no difficulty in Christ鈥檚 metaphor, 鈥楪o forth with nothing but a staff,鈥?i.e. the staff of Jacob, the rod and staff of God. But Greeks and Romans would naturally take the word literally as meaning 鈥榳alking-stick.鈥?Then they would find a difficulty, asking, 鈥榃hy should Jesus 鏉窞涓嶆瑙勭殑鎸夋懇搴楀仛鍝簺 say, No bread, no wallet鈥攐nly a walking-stick?鈥?Hence many, writing largely for Gentiles, might alter it into 鈥榥o walking-stick.鈥?This is what Matthew and Luke have done. Similarly 鏉窞姘寸（鏈嶅姟鍥剧墖 they altered Mark鈥檚 metaphor 鈥榖ut shod with sandals,鈥?i.e. with light shoes fit for the 鈥榖eautiful feet鈥?of the preachers of the gospel, into 鈥榥o boots,鈥?or words to that effect. The error is the same. Jewish metaphor has been in each case taken literally by Matthew and Luke.鈥?
Scaurus added a few remarks on Christ as a 鏉窞鏈€濂界殑姘寸枟浼氭墍 historical character, 鈥渄imly traceable,鈥?he said, 鈥渋n the combined testimony of Mark, Matthew, and Luke鈥濃€攚here I thought he might have added, 鈥渁nd in the epistles of Paul.鈥?His main thought was that, in spite of all the defects of these three writers, it
was possible to discern in Christ a successor of Moses and Isaiah. 鈥淭his man,鈥?said 鏉窞419鐧捐姳缃?Scaurus, 鈥渕ay be regarded in two aspects. As a lawgiver, he took as the basis of his republic a re-enactment, in a stronger form, of the two ancient laws that enjoined love of 鏉窞瓒崇枟淇濆仴 the Father and love of the brethren. As a prophet, he saw a time when all mankind鈥攔ecognising in one another (man in man and nation in nation) some glimpse of the divine image, and of the beauty of divine holiness鈥攚ould beat their swords into ploughshares, and go up to the City of peace, righteousness, and truth, to worship the 鏉窞鐢峰＋浼氭墍鍝釜濂芥帹鑽?Father of the spirits of all flesh. Isaiah had foreseen this. But this prophet was also possessed with a belief, beyond Isaiah鈥檚, in the unity of God and man. He was persuaded that the true Son of man was the Son of God, higher than the heavens. I think also that he trusted鈥攂ut on what grounds I do not know, unless it was an ingrained prophetic belief, found in all the great prophets, carried to its highest point in this prophet鈥攖hat, as light follows on darkness, so does joy on sorrow, righteousness 鏉窞鍝噷鐜╀綘鎳?on sin, and life on death. A Stoic would say that these things alternate and that all things go round. But this Jewish prophet believed that all things in the end would go up鈥攗p to heaven. That is how I read his expectation. Feeling himself to be one with God, he placed no limits, except God鈥檚 will, to the mighty works that God 鏉窞娲楁荡灏忓 might do for him in his attempt to fulfil God鈥檚 purpose of exalting men from darkness to light and from death to life.

The horsebreaker took hold of poor John鈥檚 head, and the tutor took hold of poor John鈥檚 legs, and between them they dragged him off the blazing heap of 鏉窞娴疯尩姹囧彲浠ュ暘鍟悧? maize-stalks on which he had fallen face downwards. Mr. Lawson, who had a great respect for honest John, rushed up then, and stopped beating-out for a minute or two, to carry him as far as possible out of harm鈥檚 way鈥攊f any place at such a time could be called out of harm鈥檚 way. Then Mr. Lawson
rushed back again, 鏉窞澶滅敓娲绘澀宸炵櫨鑺卞潑 slashing away and giving the 鈥渟eventh cut鈥?with his wooden broadsword, as if he wanted to make up for lost time, and after him, up to the thickest of the fire, dashed Sydney, and Donald, and Harry, still giddy from the smoke he had swallowed.
The men, too, fought the flames with almost desperate daring, but, in spite of what any one could do, they gained on the paddock. More than half of it had been consumed when the wind slanted to the N.E. farther and more suddenly than it had veered to the N.W. The fire went by the 鏉窞瓒虫荡灏忓 head-station buildings, gobbling up an outlying hut or two, and many a rod of fencing; but the house and most of the huts, the barn, store, wool-shed, &c., were only blistered.
Mr. Lawson, nevertheless, was a good deal poorer at night than he had been when the morning
dawned through the ominous banks and 鏉窞瓒崇枟妞?wreaths of smoke; but when he gathered all his people together in the evening to return thanks to the good God for their great deliverance, he felt happier, perhaps, than he had ever felt before in his life. The house verandah 鏉窞瀹跺涵寮弒pa was the place of common worship. The air was still stiflingly close, and poor little 鈥渟alamander鈥?Harry fainted as he leaned his scorched face against one of the half-charred verandah-posts. Sydney carried him to bed, and heroic Harry had to submit to the indignity鈥攆ortunately without being conscious of 鏉窞娲楁荡鏈嶅姟 it鈥攐f being 鈥渢ucked in鈥?and kissed, not only by 鈥渄ear mamma and the girls鈥濃€攖heirs he would have considered, perhaps, rather over-fussy, but still legitimate attentions鈥攂ut also by Miss Smith and Mrs. Jones.
VII. AN AUSTRALIAN FLOOD.
A few days after the great bush-fire I told you about in my last chapter, Harry and Donald came to spend a week or two with a friend of Mr. Lawson鈥檚 who lived just outside Jerry鈥檚 Town. The hut that was used for school-room at Wonga-Wonga had come to grief in the fire, not a bit of it being left 鏉窞榫欏嚖浜ゅ弸 standing, except the blackened brick chimney. The tutor was laid up, owing to his unwonted exertions at the fire, and it was thought that a little change would do the boys no harm. Accordingly, their saddle-bags were bulged out with changes of raiment (鈥渃reases鈥?are not thought so much of in the Bush as they would 鏉窞妗戞嬁浼氭墍缇庡コ鏈嶅姟 be by Belgravian swells), and Harry and Donald cantered into Jerry鈥檚 Town on Cornstalk and Flora M鈥業vor.
The first week they were in the township the weather was as hot as ever. Although the doors and windows were all wide open, we gasped for breath at church; and though the clergyman鈥檚 surplice looked cool, his face was so red that you could not help fancyin
