???Always going, never gone: FIRST BOY. 鈥極ct. 31.鈥擸ou will see from my note to dear Mr. Baring that sweet Bini鈥檚 long trial is over. With what joy she departed! I am telling the story in villages and Zenanas. She who had so little opportunity of working for God in her brief life, bears powerful testimony now by her death to Muhammadan and Hindu. To go joyously, in the morning of her life, to death, as to a bridal,鈥攖his is a proof of the truth and power of Christianity, which who can gainsay? I went on the day of Bini鈥檚 departure to three Zenanas, which bigotry has closed. I asked no leave but went in,鈥擨 was pretty sure of a hearing, when I went to describe the death of Babu Singha鈥檚 daughter. 今日排列五 FIRST BOY. This Vertue does above all others climb;  Here our Passengers began to fear it was now their Turn to be rifled of what they had, especially when they saw divers Horsemen, well mounted, crossing the Way backward and forward, in and out of the Woods, whooping and hollowing to one another; 'till the Sight of a Huntsman with his Horn, and a Pack of Hounds rushing out of the Wood, in Pursuit of a Hare which was gone a little while before, eas'd them of their Apprehensions, and convinc'd them, That the Horsemen they had seen, were only some of the Gentry of that Neighbourhood, diverting themselves with their Dogs. However, this Accident put them in Mind of many criminal Adventures and Robberies, which they related, one Story bringing on another, as is usual amongst Company; some of which, perhaps, will not be disagreeable to the Reader; and therefore I shall insert them here; beginning with the following, as related by one of the Gentlemen. 鈥業 said that I had heard about a man, calling himself the Mahdi, near Egypt. The young man did not seem to have an idea where the long-expected Imam is, but he said that when the place should be known all would go to see him. My curiosity was a little aroused. I asked what the Mahdi was to do. 鈥淭o reign over all kingdoms, and make every one Muhammadan.鈥?鈥淏ut if they should not choose to be Muhammadans?鈥?鈥淥h, all will be Muhammadans.鈥?鈥淏ut if I did not choose to be a Muhammadan, would he kill me?鈥?鈥淣o, his rule will be like that of the English.鈥? 鈥業 need not say how I long for tidings from India. Most especially do I desire news of Havelock鈥檚 precious little army. Upon its success, humanly speaking, may hang the safety of all our beloved ones in India.鈥? 鈥楧o you ever note what is the first waking thought when consciousness returns in the morning?... The other day my thought on awakening was so very odd, that it made an impression by its very strangeness. I could not imagine what could have put it into my head, and you will smile when you read it. 鈥淭he snuffers were of gold!鈥?I have not so much as seen snuffers since I came to India.... Why on earth should my waking thought be of them? 鈥淲ell,鈥?considered I, 鈥渟nuffers are worthy of mention in the Bible; and those in the Temple were of gold. What can I make out of this thought?鈥? 鈥業t was a very different thing when our boys took the batting. It does one good to hear the thud from R.鈥檚 bat when he sends the ball flying ever so far. He and S. made, I think, 87 runs, and were never bowled out. The rest of our boys had no turns at all; for the sun went down, and still R. and S., tired, but unconquered, held their wickets. What is most pleasing is that our boys did not crow as they might have done,鈥攖heir opponents were too utterly smashed. Had the contest been a close one, there would have been plenty of cheering.  FIRST BOY. 鈥業t鈥檚 all for your own good, Herbert,鈥?said Mrs. Larkins. 鈥楾hey鈥檙e going to make a gentleman of you. You鈥檒l get learning, and Latin, and French mathematics; and by and by you鈥檒l be an officer, perhaps, and live like a lord.鈥?
