WEDNESDAY EVENING. OCT.26. Harlequin Fairy Morgana. (CONTIKUED.) . I was getting unutterably low - spirited. Even the Contemporary Boy, now well - nisk ro!liu' under the sent in hysterical convulsions for u moment looked at me strangely and seriously. Honest John Plusher whispered, 'what's up .lack ? but I put him back impatiently, for, at that moment, crossing the bridge, was a figure meant to be that of imaged crone disguised in a sort of domino hood, but whom I, with a maivellous instinct, recognized as the exquisite ambrosial creature from above. This marvellous instinct was in some degree assisted by a glimpse of a glittering raiment, as it were, of liquid silver, hidden underneath; but I knew uerat once. For the time I felt aninexmessi - Dle rebel, and when, for the purpose of reciuit - mg the miller's daughter's humanity, she ultimately revealed herself in all her true celestial essence (as I said beforo, not mere flash, surely, hut something in the nature ot manna' or of pale pink sugar illuminated from within,) I gave way to my feelings in a torrent of delight Khort - lived happiness ! She presently passed away, and then came the stupid comic thing again, and the beefeaters, and fresh palace interiors, and thon. a dark place with many people huddled together, and then she appeared agam out of the ground, bearing her silver wind, and looking as it was plain to be seen she was an angel among oarthy and earthly creatures. Tijen she bi - an to, to declaim in the language of her own cek - stial country waving her wand then the opened. Then cascades of molten silver began to How, and gigantic ferns to open, and glorified women to ascend slowly, and light to be turned on in streams and floods, and I to be gem - rally duazlcd, bewildered, and suffering from a sense of exquisite oppression! Then pillars began to be revealed, pillars that re - vo.ved and glistened, and more terns to open, and angels to ascend in pairs; and then in the centre rose a fountain, which seemed to stream a ram of gold, and then with delighted applause bursting out on all sides, the waters of the iountuin parted, and then m the centre was discovered she v, ho I thought was lost to !C - or ever, more ambrosial, more celestial, mere roseate than betore, there enthroned as a queen. .Mlver wand in hand, with all beudiu" to her. I lelt a thrill of joy, and vet I had a dismal presentiment that the end was not far away. bo it proved to be. The minor heavenly beings floated away in ranks to each side, anil the eclt - sijul creature botian to s;ieak, oh, how melodiously ! tome farewell words. Not without ii tinge of mournful sadness her utterance rcso nnd fell. I coald have listened torovcr to that dying 1V.H. My foreboding was. !n tally true. With her marvellous power, tic v, as about trausforraiii" the miller, llother iJnnch herself, and others, into new and strange shapes Harlequin, Clown, Pantaloon, and Columbine (.'diss Robespierre .standing dressed already at the wing). A wave of that wand, and it was done. Miss E - jbes - niL - nc nn:e bounding on (ah! how easv to knoc; :;,. was a mere creature of earth, Konmeli per night ; for clwn tumad in ids toes, una ioc - rcd at nr.. and asked h.nvwe were tn - m - jerr.w ; harlemim ghtterol like a snac ; and what I have since hoard c .lied " the comic business" sA fairly in. Bat with ti:i: bolloonery the divine lire of transformation ii'utcl out. I had one last eiquisiie gbiiipsc of the lovely fairy Morgana, mora ijngut. more ambrosial than erar, waving her K.n.d, when the two halves of a street came rushing t; ge'.her from the side, exhibiting the c'stab::shnieut of Mr. Beetley, a butcher, and Hairucr.y &. Co., music sellers mot in - the centre, and shut her out from me for over! Then set in, the old confusion, coavnlsiu" i all round houses clnmged into kitchens, gar - ! ileus mto steamboats, and vegetable 1 shops into railway trains. The clown and his decrepit friend took lodg - mgs together, and when they sat down found their scats lifting them to the ceiling. Articles of food were purloined from traders' shops, the shopman always corning out into the street to arrange his bargain, and thus leaving his wares an easy prey to the evil disposed and designing. Customers' heads were cut off, and fastened on again by tho adhesive agency of the first glue pot that chanced to pass that way. Pinally, it came to an end, and we went our way. Going home, Honest John talked exu - boiantly of the whole performance, dwelling specially on the theft by the clown of a lady's crinoline, and his converting of its wires into a sort of meat sate, and hanging it round with rabbits, cats and live poultry; ' one of the best things he ever saw in the whole course of his life.' Mrs. Honost John fancied somethin" else; the Cotemporary Boy rather leant to the policeman scenes; but, poor blinded things, they were insensible to her. Not one of them mentioned her. ' 'He didnt like it, ' said honest John, pointing to me. ''Something was wron. I saw it. He won't toll us what." My sister whispered softly, "You were sick, dear. I was afraid " In the darkness of the cab I resented this: it was too much, for sho had indeed gently warned me at dinner, when I believe for the third time I had But it was not the rich slabs of fried pudding. How little they mukistcod me! I could not explain, and t have an idea that they set :ne down as sulky. It was a relief to get to my lonely cham'ier There, in solitude, I could call up the enchanting image, and feast upon all her loveliness. I made her rise aguin in slow time (worked by invisible mechanics) from among the golden groves. I bathed her once mora in ambrosial light. I saw again in her angelic lineaments that exquisitely gentle and half - mournful expression. I illumined, too, from within the celestial which formed her iinn.s. In short. I dwelt upon her perfections with a miserable pleasure winch every moment made me more and moro wretched. I saw her as she appeared for the last time, and felt the curious sensation I have described as "a wrench." It was mLs'" - v de spair, desolation. I began to toss, and passed a terrible night the worst since tho well - known measles epoch, whon people sat up with me. Towards morning I began to droam, and I saw her again bathed in pink light. I came down to utter blankness, and to the meal known as breakfast Everything jarred upon me. It all looked like school? It had the rawness and general prose of that establishment. I wanted to have ereryrhin" bathed in pink ambrosial light I was silent and gloemy, and could not eat with the indiscriminate selection, which in my instanco was almost matter of notoriety. I became the subject ot public remark. It was again insisted I was ill: an insinuation indignantly repudiated. Honest John Plusher then rallied me in his own pleasant way on being 'put out' bv something: a course of remark which bitterly wounded me. Then my sister, Mrs. Honest John, kindly changed the subject to tho spec tacle of last night. - It was very good,' said .Honest John, 'uncommonly good! He had seen nothing better, in fact Scenery so good ' Jove! what perfection they've brought these things to now - a - days ! Now, that scene of the dancing; the what d'ye call it ?' 'The Transformation Scene?' said Mrs. Honest John. 'No, the one where they oome in and dance' lcouianot restrain myself, but brokn oni They started. ' 'By Jove!' said Honest John, looking at me with astonishmeni 'But,' said he, 'it was spoiled by that stout dumpy woman with the wand: the queen, or whatever they called her ' My cheeks were burning. I felt them blaring She to be thus grossly described ! But. trood ir the rnain, BTonest John was a coarse crea - "Eh!"he saidtonie, "did you sea how &m U Waa hk"aa elephant AjTeWaant waltzing! My cheeks like S"rl frFnmt' - Iconotstand it, and fled from the room crying, I believe They nrast have thought me coin" l' Honest . John came - to soothe me, but cautiousW and with a sort of wonder. It vM that for the morning pastime we Kffi palace - the Crystal, or some such thin - 'make a day of it," as Honest John said T agreed. I was indifferent ; they might lead where they would ; nay, I oven assumed a sort of wild and ghastly merriment discordant with my habitual character. It was done to hide the grim despair that was working under m, jacket - I saw every minute they knew not what was come over me (how should they?) and John all through the day kopt his ee carefully upon me. "We went to the Palace. I saw it; that is Ihry saw it. The despair and blankness was growing upon me more and more. I ionised food. I declined buns and 'cream t n - ts ' a debcacy I was known to be partial to 1 w is pinmg to be alone again. JSut as it "r towards evening, and the darkness was'lo - '.in - n, nrd the street - lamps be:;an to be li"!;L - if the blankness and desolation seemed to "come i.ii me as with a rush for I knew that verv soon the ambrosial pink light would be tumrd on, and the celestial Divine creature would once more descend. Tho thought made me ache again. Wc were coining home in a cab. Honest John precipitated our movements with a good - natured apology, for that he was obliged tobebackingoodtimo to take Mrs. Honest John to a family dinner at old Backslider's. The people were hurrying by very fast : gaslight was flaring in the shop windows on their laces as they went by ; when suddenly a plot, a wild daring scheme, appalling almoit in the stupendously hold character oi its proportions, leaped into my head. I would do it, or, in reality, sicken and die. It must end. In a moment my spirits roso. I astounded them by the sudden change. I laughed boisterously. I saw Honest John glancing at me a little nervously. I became almost exultant, but am ashamed to think into what a little monster of craft I became suddenly transformed. I accounted for the alteration in my demeanor by an admission that the sickness with which I had been charged had altogether passedaway, and that I was now restored to comparative health. I pretended to have had nothing heavy on my mind but pudding. I thought they would never go to that dinner. But at last they did. Then I hurriedly matured my guilty scheme. I took the Contemporary Boy aside and unfolded to him the details. He was first appalled, then stupefied, by the darin" oi the undertaking. When he recovered himself he declined to take part in it; until, in my desperation having recourse to awful threats, he gave way. The scheme was a wicked, nefarious, stolen visit to the scene of last ni"ht's celestial joys. I made him a partner in niv infamy. Eluding tho vigilance of the servants, we set out. But the night was wet and stormy, and our available capital, putting every strain upon our resources, wes barely equal to the price of two nit ficl - ofc - n oli nroa !, 1. 1. . r I wrapped myself up proudly in a stoical indifference (and also in the little shrunken garment known to us as a great - coat,) and said I did not rnvfl Thn rtntamnn. ? . - j i. uv vui,ciij,uiuij A0 HU1U 118 did, and held back reluctantly. I had to use violence to bring the Contemporary Boy on. We asked the way " to the theatre." Eou"h men invariably answered us bluntly, " Wot theatre ?" I replied gently, the Contemporary Boy trembling at my side, " the theatre where the Pantomime is. " He replied in the same rough way, "That warn't much help. How - somever' (I distinctly remember the use of this odd word), ' howsomover, he supposed it were the theay tor in Beak street ?' The Contemporary Boy said, boldly, that was it. Then we must take the first turning to tho right, then to the left by the public - 'ouse, tc. The rain was now beginning to pour down very steadily, and we took the first turning to the right, &c, then to the left, fec, and thon broke down. We had to ask again. Rain increasing. Contemporary Boy beginning to cry, like a beastly baby as he was, at his saturation. But I should have recollected that he had not the Great Purposo within him, which I had, to bear him up. Wo asked again, but this time people declined to stop to answer our inquiries. We were fast growing pulpy ; and now, in addition to tho responsibility resting on me, I had the additional burden cast upon me oi dragging my companion along. It was growing serious, but still I held on. Alter an hour's walking and an hour's drenching, ye reached the theatre the rough men had directed us to. And here we broke down altogether. We knew from the outside that it was not the one. (To be coutinuod.) THE 11 flf LI S T.31 K ft T JLOAJ. w A R LO AN.

OPINIONS OF THE NEW YORK PRESS: From the Jonrnal of Commerce. CATARRH CURED. THE CASE OF HUTCH INGS, THE "LIGHTNING CALCULATOR," There was published in those columns a few days since, theromarkablecureof Hntchings, the "Lightning Calculator," so well known to thopubbc during the many years he exhibited his wonderful arithmetical powers at Bar - num's Museum, by the celebrated Oculist and Aurist, Dr. Voir Eisembeeo, of this city. Hutchings is represented to have been at the point of death, and bnt for the timely interference of the Doctor, would now be resting in! bis grave. This is a xemarkablo case, and wortfav of the atten tion of persons similarly afflicted. We think it isbutjnstto Dr. Vo Eisesbbbq to call pubu'eatteotioutothiflcase. There are hundreds in the community suffering from Catarrh, who, like the "Light ning Calculator," if not actually praying for death, are ready to accept or anything that promisee to relieve them from their distresses. To snch, wo would Bay, trifle not with inexperienced men, bnt consult without unnecessary delay.Dr. Vos Beenbebg, who. at least, has fchehonosty to assure his patients whether it ia within his power to ,make them whole or not. DEAFNESS OORED. From, the Tribune. EARS TO THE DEAF, Every man, and especially every woman, believes in hiaor her physician. There are philosophical minds which hold fco on abstract faith in Allopathy, or Homoeopathy, or Hydropathy, or some other form of scientific cure: bnfc with the world at large the belief is not in the system, but in the doctor . EflpeciaHj is this true as regards aurists and occu - lists. The patient who haa recovered his sight or his hear ing, is sure that the blessing oould not have been restorod to him by any other practitioner than that particular one by whom hiseyoaor ears wore ope nod. Dr. Yos!Ei8E!fBEita is among our best known auiiato. He has not lent us ears as brother practitioner has eyes, and in whose skill, therefore, we believe above all others. But we heard of him from those who estoem him not merely as a surgeon, but as & ben efactor. A recent case haa been related to us, for the truth fulness of whioh vto can vonoh, though we can name no names. The patient was a lady who had been deaf from infancy, as a consequence of some of the ailments to which children are liable. Latterly the disease had taken an acute form, and the patient was subject to intense suffering. The de&fnesswaa rapidly becoming complete, and the general health breaking downundor the physical exhaustion attendant upon constant pain. Ordinary remedies and ordinary advise were useless, and Dr. Ton Eisenberg was called in. We need not repeat his diagnogia, fox that would be ODly a list of hard names to tho general reada. But he detected at sight tho seat of disease, first in one portion of the organism, thon in another, and with manipulation as BldUfulaa his insight was accurate, he removed the causes, and Bhe, who from infancy had heard with difficulty, and Utterly hardly at all, was restored first to perle ct hearing, and then to perfect health. Dr. Von Eisenberg's advertisement reminds us of this case, which we thus briefly relate, though not at hU solicitation. Let him Uuthath not oars, hear. (From the Christian Times.) SIGHT RESTORED. CONCERNING EYES AND OCCULISTS. Of tho five senses, that Swhioh wo call BeeingUthe most important and most valued. In proportion as thisEsenso fails us, we are reduced to helplessness. If entirely destitute of sight how slow would be our progress in knowledge, andhowUmitedoursphoroof action and usefulness. En - dowed witk it, the universe becomes a new creation, clothed with beauty and diversified by that infinite rariety which never fails to attract the mind and heart. For several mootha past tlus has been a practical subjoct to us. An inflamed condi(ion of tho oyolids communicating itself to the pupil, rendered the discharge of daily duties not only painful but dangerous. Attributing it to the effect of a cold, we endured it through the spring, with thehopo that with tho re tarn of warm weather It would entirely disappear. Bafia this we were doomed to diaappointaient, Smnmer returned, but not our wonted alght. What might hare been tho result, either of further neglect or incompetent treatment, we cannot say. Stating our case to a friond. ho assured us that a similar one in his" own family had recently been treated with entire Buccoea by by Dr. Von EUnberg, of this city. Satisfying ourselves by moro particular inquiries that tho doctor isnoempirio.bntascientifio oocnlist and Artist, we concluded to seek the benefits of bia' treatment, whioh we have now reason to acknowledge U very great. Though but a few wecka under bis care, the appearance of oureyes haa totally changed. The pupil is now fall and dear, and the Lids are entirely free from infUmmation. The doctor says that the optio nerve has been eakaned and the retina assumed a chronio inflammatory state, affecting moro or less all the other tissues, and threitening, if neglected, to end in Amaurosis. Opthalmitia, U tho term, we believe, which ocoulists apply to eyes affected as were ours. Having obtained the much denied relitf. we take great pleasure in acknowledging our indebtedness to tho talont of Dr. Von Elaenberg, and of colling to it tho attention of others who may be suffering from a similir or even worse condition of thoireyes. It is said that Providence provides an antidoto for every bane. It Is certain that thoeye is, ia these times, BubjecttOBewertriala than formerly. Letfas be thankful, then, that as we increase the tendencies which destroy the oryanof vision, the progress of science keeps pace with tiJofle tendencies, if not in odv&nc of them 81G BROADWAY, NEW YORK. j eMfcn PIAHO FORTES.

No notice is taken of it until their attention is called to tho large discharge of water, and often when it is so far advanced as to bo beyond control of ordinary remedies. Another symptom is the greatrthirst. which when the disease is fully established, is intolerable the patient drinks constantly without being satisfied! also dryness of the mouth, cracking of the lips, a sweet breath, in the more advanced cases, and finally loss of appetite, ema - eiation. and the patient gradually sinks from exhaustion CONtOTrcrnOK WATEB is, without doubt, the only known remedy for diabetes, and we have as much confidence that it is a 'Specific as we have Wat opium will produce sleep, and trutlilully say that it has cured every case in which it haa been used.
