So deeply moved was be by the notes of any bird, and especially those of a dove, the only soothing sounds he ever heard during his life of horrors, that through these plaintiff notes, and them alone, he was induced to escape from his vessel, abandon his turbulent companions, and return to a family de ploring his absence. After paying a hasty visit to those wells, and listening once more to the cooings of the Zenaida1 dove, he poured out his soul in supplica tion for mercy, and once more bccame what one has said to be noblest work of honest man- 1118 escape was effected amid difficulties and dangers, but no danger seemed to him comparable with the danger of living in violation of I human and divine laws; and he now lives in peace in the midst of his friends. D0J8TICI8 GOES OH A TAEOH R. CU&SIO*. [F.odi Uie iMrnit Advertiser.j t rom Doesticks last effusion, we make I the following extract. The production, as a whole, is hardly up to the tone of I some of its previous ones: New York, Jan. 15, 1854. * * # * Uere thel target companies are eomposed of all sorts of people?tire companies, express companies, policemen, gangs of men from all kinds of mammoth shops, for wher ever thirty or forty men work in one shop, they form themselves into a mili tary-company, and once or twice a year go to Hoboken, and shoot for whisky and other prizes. When they want to make a full turn-out, the places of any missing members are filled by extemporaneous volunteers. It was in this capacity that I proposed to go. In these companies, there are always more officers than men,., and more epaulets than muskets?always I a big band of music, and two darkies to carry the target. As to their marching, no two ever step together, and they al ways put a tall man by the side of a short one, so as to have the average length of steps come right. Thev go forth in the morning in high spirits,' and return at night surly, dusty, discontent ed, dilapidated and drunk. An the tar get is always carried in triumph through the streets, and afterwards exhibited in the dnil-r?om, the darkey invariably THE WEEKLY 8TAR. ?tftfl* *?*?> 9* n~ ?*. .r.?rr: ? - T?l 4l ??? in* W 4*1 m m ?' , ? % ? ? ?? ^ Twwty mni>hm*? 19- Cam, mAiitii! ui ,?**ao?. fp- Sinflr copioa (*? ? the eouM?r, paper.

Every member has a whisky bot tle id his cartridge box, or a brand y flask in his kuapsack. , As a general thing, thtj turn their toes in, and are bandy legged? they carry their pns over their shouldars at all conceivable angles, and so little do they know about fire-anns that probably, if called upan to load their muskets i? a hurry, two out of three would put their cartridges into their brceche* pockets, and 6tick their percus sion caps on the ends of their ramrods. When they tire a salute, and mean all to shoot together, the report is so near si multaneous that a stranger would think they were firing minute-guns. They al ways select for judges of the shooting the men who will give the most whisky and make the shortest speeche s As these excursions come off just before the elec tion, the candidates for office generally pay for the prizes, and bear the expenses of a reporter for the press to puff the com pany. The judges carry out the rewards in the morning, tied up in brown paper, and the soldiers wear them back at night round their necks. Six or eight men, called pioneers, march in front with muffs on their heads, leather aprons tied round their waists, and theoretical axes in their hands, which could never, by any possibility, be made to cut anything. The officers walk between the platoons, flourishing their dandy swords, their at tention being pretty equally divided in keeping the men in line, keeping the lit tle boys out of the line, keeping their un accustomed white gloves on. and trying to keep step with the music. In single tile the men march like a flock of geeee, on their winding way to the mill-pond? and six or eight abreast, they go with the regularity of a crowd of school beys, (.fleeting a masterly but hurried retreat from somebody's melon patch. In order to make them form a straight line, it ia necessary to back them up against a brick block, or make them stand between the tracks of a railroad. ' S'ioh was the company of which I be came a member for a brief and eventfal time. Its cognomen was 44 The Lager Bier American Volunteers and Native Empire City Shillelagh Guards," being C3mpo?ed of Irish, Dutch, Spaniards, and Sandwich Islanders?the onlv Americans In the company being the colored target bearer, and the undersigned. Thr Th;rr and thb Mocsa?Capt. Basil Hall in his 44 Fragments of voyages and travels," gives the following interest ing asedote of a tiger kept at the British Residency at t alcutta: 44 But what on noyed him far more than our poking him with a stick or tantalizing him with with pieces of beef or legs of mutton, was iD trducing a mouse m his cage. No fine lady ever exhibited more terror at the sight of spider, than this magnificent ro yal tiger betrayed on seeing the mouse, i >ur mischievous plan was to tie the little animal by a string to the end cf a long l>ole, and thrust it close to the tiger's nose. That moment he jammed himself into a corner, aud stood trembling and roariog in such an octasy of fear that we were always obliged to desist, in pity to the poor brute. Sometime we insisted upon h s passing over the s>pot where the unconscious little inuuse ran backward aud forwards. For a long time, we could not get him to move; till at length, I be lieve by the help of a squib, we obliged him to start: but instead of pacing lei surely across his den, or making a ietour to avoid the object of his alarm, he gen eraly took kind of dying leaps so high as nearly to bring his back in contact with the roof of the cage." Photographic Criminals ?The gov ernor of Bristol jsul (England) writes as follows to the papers: 44 Lach prison sliould have its gallery of criminal portraits ; nay, I have al ready such means of reference in my own establishment. I keep a large book with an alphabetical index, in which I paste an engraving, if I may use the term, of eveiy portrait taken by me ; beside this I preserve, in a ca.?e fitted with grooves, and numbers to correspond with iny book, the negative plates from which those engravings are made. If the gov ernor of another jail writes to me con cerning any prisoner whom I cannot rec ognize by name, I apply to him for a de scription, and if it accords with either of my j?on raits, I take an impression from my negative plate, and forward it to him, thus enabling him to see whether the suspected party has or has not been in custody. I am also equally sure you are right in your belief that 4 That the fail ure of all his hopes, to escape detection and recognition, may induce maoy a criminal to begin the new year with the conviction that it would be less trouble some and more profitable to become an honest man.' In confirmation of your riews, I may state that only a abort time i.nce a notorious offender said to me. while conveying h;m to Wakefield. 41 lever would have been found in your jail f I had known that you took the por .raits of prisonera. ?7?A puritanical visage and a sanc imonious air are frequently the mere dis guises of a depraved heart. True Chris tianity teaches cheerfulness, and peace, uid good will to all men, and those who jbserve its rules will tind them the only ;ui4e to true happiness here, ami eter lal bliss hereafter. But there are a class >f people who make the garb of saaetity i mask to conceal their wickedness. The luperficial world terms them good citi E'_*n8 because they visit church regularly fcnd contribute to some foreigu charity. But if the curtain was drawn aside you would in many instance? behold them in their true colors.
