His nncle was an old ship master, and Harry was at some pains to show htm round, partly to show him bis own knowledge. There was only one sailor on board, and as the visitors passed and re-passed the hatches," Mind ye, mind ye," he said, "dotft fall into the hold, or ye'd never see daylight again." " There! is no danger of my nncle,* said Harry proudly, " he knows a ship from stem to stern ; and I do too." As the} came down the ladder and walked away, "I was so provoked with that old salt," said he; " he seemed to think we were knownothing landsmen, with not sense enough to keep from pitching into the first danger. I wonder you should „ thank him for the advice, uncle ; I was provoked." " I should be very sorry to take offence at well meant advice," said the uncle.

[ Tte aPote<m Wiad, " A Russian nobleman, who. has been traveling in Africa, gives the following account of the Samieli, Simoon or poison Wind, which is such an object of interest and terror to all classes and ail nations. He says: "The Samieli is felt in the desert from about the middle of June to the 21st of September. It is experienced with a very violent South-west wind, and on those days when the heat of the mu is most ardent. It is buraingi; it comes in gusts more or less scorching, of more less duration; each of them, however, even the shortest, exceeds the time that a man could hold his breath. The wind consists in a succession of burning and cool gusts. In the first, there is a double degree ot heat and impetuosity. The difference beWeen the hot and cold gusts according to my observation is from 7 to 10 degrees. The highest degree of hot gusts was 73 degrees of Farenheit, the temperature In the sun, without the Samieli, having been constantly from 53 to 57 degr...
