spectator in the house had guessed what was
going on behind the scenes, the results would
have been most disastrous and the victims
numerous. The coolness and presence of
mind of the manager prevented a terrible
catastrophe. The ballet dancers on their part
deserved the grateful thanks of their country
and earned their five francs bravely. It was
remarked in the house with some surprise
that it rained heavily on the stage ; but who

Rhmmd Gartner. Sltdman 77e Blameless Prince
and other Poems.
FROM OUR OWN C0RRF.SP0XDEXT.
New York, March ICth, 1870.
Since the days of The Diamond Wedding,"
I wonder how many of the Advertiser's readers
have read the writings of Edmund Clarence Sted
man, who celebrated it in a poem? Those who
were interested in his account of that glittering
solemnity may be interested to know that the
Senor Oviedo, its hero, died a few months ago of
age and ennui; and that its historian, about the
Bxme time, published a charming volume of poetry
entitled 44 The Blameless Prince." I think that
the cultivated audience of the Advertiser will
thank me for directing their attention toward one
of the most promising of our younger poets.
Sir. Stedman's last book is the work of a
poetical nature, acting under the somewhat rigid
limitations of American culture. It expresses a
development as fine as is yet attainable in our
milieu, as Taine calls the circumstances which
condition the artist. As water envelops the
naked form of the bather, so intimately is the
poet in contact with his conditions, which do
not, however, yield so freely to him as the me
dium in which the swimmer moves. The poetical,
or unpoetical, taste and tendencies of the public
react powerfully upon the poet ; and only eminent
gcn'us can create the requisite atmosphere of
appreciation for a. really new utterance in any
domain of art.
The poem which gives its name to this volume,
describes, in two hundred and eighteen elegiac
stanzas, both the outward and the secret life of a
prince whose character is apparently blameless,
lie diaplajs before his court and Lis people a
pure and unsuspected morality and a gracious
culture ; and after a long and happy rein he ,
larr..ite'l by f!e natiou ns Tiic ' , K-.ti
Priure.'' Yet, tirfmghout thifc cc-LipIar . ..',

I !v uiiP 'e
" He saw the lady's prodigal dark hair
And wondrous tovciiues ;n
and, having Been, he never forgot the vision.
Sle was one of those, in the poet's words,
........ Whose fervent souls are wed
To Blorious bodies, panoplied fr love.
Born to hear sweetest words that can be said,
To give and gather kisses, ami to move
All men with longing after them to know
What flowers ol paradise for lovers grow."
Love sprang up at once between the lady and
the prince; yet it was not confessed at the first
44 Only lhir eyes told what they could not b;it.
For a till their lips spoke eleven words that day."
They parted ; and in married life the prince
endeavored to forget this imperious and sudden
passion. He truggled against it, and lie passed
several years in happy wedlock ; when, meeting
again the queen's rival, all his old love for her
flamed up anew. In spite of their long separation,
" Each in the other's fancy so had dwelt,
44 That, as one sees lor days a sweet strange face,
Until in dreams at night he does caress
Its owner, aud next niuruing in some place
Meets her, and wonders if she loo can guess
flow near and known he thinks her in this wise
They read one story In each other's eyes.
44 Her thick hair, falling from its lilies, hid
Their firm long kiss ol passion and content.
He heard her soft, glad murmur, as site slid
Within his hold, and 'gsinst his bosom leant.
Whispering: 4 At last! at last ! the years were sore.'
4 Their spite,' he said, 4 shall do us wrong no more ! ' "
From that time forward,- the prince lived a
double life; for the secret of his forbidden love
was guarded until the day of his death. Finally,
however, after long mental conflict, he determined
to break off this liaison, and to live faithful to
his queen ; but on the very day in which he sets
out to execute his resolve he is killed in his own
forests by the fall of a tree. He is mourned
with reverent affection by the nation ; and elo
quent inscriptions record his stainless virtue.
Soon after this event the queen is thrown by
accident into the society of her still unsuspected
rival, who has retired, since the death of the
prince, to a convent, and, has resolved to expiate
her sin by confession ; and 6he tells the story of
the king's unfaithfulness to the incredulous and
infuriated queen. The dialogue between the two
women is a powerful and dramatic scene, it is
marred however by an offence against literary
taste. Describing the rage of the queen upon
hearing the confession of her rival, the poet says:
44 The tiger that is prisoned at life's start
la mortals, though per chance it never wakes
From its mute sleep began to rouse and crawL
Her lips grew while, and on her nostril flake
Of wrath and loathing itood."
This passage may plead a classic precedent. But
thisls pathology, not poetry. -
The passages that follow are fine. A strong
revulsion takes place in the queen's feeling to
ward the memory of her lord, and toward the
living world. Thenceforward, to her
44 The air seemed full of lies, the realnrunsound ;
Her courtiers knaves ; her maidens, good and lair,
Most shameless bawds ; her children clung around
Like aaps, to sting her ; from the kingdom's heir, '
Shuddering, she turned her face ; his features took
A shining horror from bis lather's look."
The queen died broken-hearted ; and her secret
perished with her. The world still cherishes the
pure memory of the Blameless Prince ; and only
to the oet is revealed the tragedy of these three
The vereiGcation of the poem is highly melodi
ous ; aud its analysis of the passions and the
principles which etruggle for the mastery of the
prince's heart are a continual comment upon the
dogma, 44 Love is crime." The poem is not,
however, in any formal sense didactic. The facts
of a pathetic experience are given, and tlte reader
ia left to Lis own interpretations of their sig
nificance. The minor poems, which occupy the latter half
of the volume, posfess a varied interest ; and as I
Lave begun to speak of poetry, 1 will finish by
giving some account of them. They are divided
into 44 Songs and Studies," 44 Poems of Nature,"
44 Shadow-Land,' and 44 Translations from Theo
critus." ' Picturesque transcripts of New Eng
land life are given in 44 Country Sleighing " and
44 The Doorstop." The peculiar Kiting rhythm
in the former poem is fascinating :
44 The windows glisten, the old folks listen
To hear the slcigh-bella pass 1
The fields grow whiter, the stars are brighter, "
The road is smooth as glass.
Our mu filed faces born,
The clear north wind blows cold.
The girls all nestle, nestle, nestle,
Each ia her lover's bold."
- The following verses are 'tailed
' THE TBT8T.
Sleeping, I dreamed that thou wast mine.
In some ambrosial lover's shrine.
Hy lips against thy Upa were pressed,
And aU our passion was confessed ;
Ho near and dear my darling seemed,
I know not that 1 00 ly dreamed.
44 Waking, this mid and moonlight night, .
I clasp thee close by lover's right,
ThJU fearest not my warm embrace, .
And yet so like the dream thy face
- And kisses I but half partake .
The joy, and know not if I wake.
44 At Twilight " and the 44 Autumn Song " are
swallow-flights of melody which I would quote,
but that space forbids.' Mr. Stedman's poetry is
characterized by a felicity of phrase and of rhythm,
by a sculpturesque beauty of expression, and by
a choice of effective Bubjecta. We may estimate
44 The Blameless Prince " as a weleome contribu
tion to American belles-lettres, as the flower of a
fine nature, even though it springs up in the arid
soil of this city, where is Mr. Stedman's houee
and Business. For the poet is a Wall street man,
as busy as the rest ; and bis art has both merits
J ?nd disadvantages as the result. -Many great
literary men have also been men of Business ; the
poet, indeed, geta a dryer knowledge of many
aspects of life when he mingles with the throng
thun when he isolates himself. Of the other
fine arts no high development seems possible
among us; but there is no reason why good
poetry should not be produced in this country
to-day ; and Mr. Stedman's volume is an earnest
of the fact. No recent volume that Las appearea
among ns is better worth attention.
English Activity In Ocean Telegraphs Ex

A London weekly journal of the latest mail
date publishes the following interesting remarks
with apparently a justifiable pride on the
Subject OI the aia anu eueuuragvmcui. niiitu
Great Britain affords to projects of ocean tele
graph communication with the far East. The
writer says :
The characteristic energy of English capitalists
has been newly shown in the extension of oceanic
telegraphy. Some months ago we published a
list "of seven schemes, with a capital of nearly
6,000,000. which had been launched shortly
after the success of the French Atlantic cable,
and the list, inclusive ol companies for telegraph
construction, may now be extended to thirteen,
with a capital of 9,000,000, viz. :

whole field to which such enterprise can extend.
This is very prompt work, and ought to be re
marked at a tune when some reproacnes are maae
against English energy for not having promoted
a scheme like the Suez Canal. We are expend
ing on oceanic telegraphs in a year about as
much as the canal cost all the independent share
holders in ten. The two enterprises besides are
not to be named together jn importance the
judgment of the English capitalist as well as his
energy oemg enown uy ma taxing to uie one anu
not to the other. The telegraphs in the present
state of the world change materially the condi
tions of trade at comparatively little expense,
and are, therefore, in great demand ; and if the
business is risky there are at least large profits
in it things which can hardly he said ot the
canal. It is not their neglect of a scheme not
really demanded by business, or only in moderate
demaud, which will show that the enterprise of
English capitalists has been beaten or approached
in the promotion of important and novel under
"What Ice has done for Civilization.
A few years ago ice was an incidental luxury
; and not a necessity of life. It Mas an indulgence,
anu not a nxeu naoic. liuiter was cooie cuereDy,
and a phenomenal ice cream was possible. It
was a relief to the sick room. Then came Aque
duct water in cities instead ot the now deserted
wells, and the ice business became important
The changes made in accordance with the new
era are mentioned by the .Newark: Advertiser.
The refrigerator was invented. The deep, dark,
dingy, and damp old cellar went the way of the
old well, aud the well-lighted basement came in.
The refrigerator and the basement eo together.
Then came the great preservatories in slaughter
nouses, markets, Hotels, &o., Dotti lor meats and
vegetables. Then came the Arctio cars for the
transportation of perishable articles of food. See
also how the soda water and ice cream business
expanded, and what life was given to the plumber's
trade. Finally, the undertakers, says the Adver
tiser, 44 have modified the whole method of their
calling, and made large investments in the ma
chinery needed for the refrigeratory processes.
Here is something like theJiouse that Jack built,

Suppose the ice crop is really short this year.
The world can do without ice cream and 6herry
cobblers, while thousands of person would lose
employment, and the community at largo would
be subjected to an enormous expense. These lux
uries, grown and developed into necessities, can
not be idly abandoned. The mild Winter teaches
that the ice area should be enlarged. What the
Hudson does not yield, the Kennebec must, and
the factories for manufacturing ice must be intro
duced here as they are at the South. For ice we
must have. The want not felt a few years ago
is now the centre of many and absorbing commer
The Hon. Mr. Caldwell, formerly a Minister of
the United Stale a ia Bolivia, and now accredited to
it, from Bolivia, had reached Woshingtou, and bten
retused a reception by the government. In a re
cent similar case Secretary Fish said that the U. S.
Government could not receive one of its own citi
zens as a Minister from a foreign government. Mr.
Fish also informed the Minister that the case of
Burlingitiue was not analagous. as he was a special
envoy to all the treaty-making; powers, and not
subject to recsgnition by the United States.
The Sex. Never, says the London AOteneum
has the sun been so much looked at as now. Ia
Europe and America, iu India and at the Cape, in
any place where there are telescopes and spectro
scopes, and astronomers to use them, there the sun
is closely watched. At Kew Observatory photo
heliography is a part ot the regular daily work of
the establishment, and from time to time the results
and the conclusions tlrey warrant are laid before
the Royal Society. Out of all this it is thought that
our knowledge of the sun's constitution must be
increased. All possible advantage will Le taken
of the eclipse of the sun in December next ; aud,
under instruction from scientific committees, par
ties will Le sent to Algiers to make observations,
aided by the best modern appliances. Meanwhile,
Father Secchl.of the Observatory at Rome is pub
lishing every day a picture of the sun, iu which all
the visible spots and all the prominences, with their
changes, are represented. A daily solar bulletin,
though a rough one, may perhaps be useful.
Threatens to Resiux. It Js rumored that Sec
retary Fish intends to resign the portfolio of State,
if the treaty for the annexation of San Domingo
should pass the Senate. This Government with a
San Domingo appendage is something which that
statesman cannot regard with favor. It is against
his principles to recognize, in his official capacity,
the annexation of that volcanic community. Aa a
foreign nation the Secretary is perfectly willing to
discharge every duty which San Domingo may
impose on him, but he is unequal to the task of so
altering his ideas with reference to it, as to view
it in the light of c part and parcel of this Republic.
Its annexation would be, so far aa the Secretary of
State is concerned, nothing but a measure to
relieve that functionary for the future from all
trouble in keeping up a correspondence with it
and about it -
How to Reach the North Pole. Now that the
Senate Committee have resolved to recommend
spending 8100,000 for new Arctio explorations,
they should give due attention to the claims of the
Kuro-Siwo route. Captain Bent was the first to
bring this line of research into notice. In a pow
erful series of papers, supplemented by Professor
T. B. Maury's able contributions to Putnam's
Magazine, he proyes that the probabilities of

are decidedly in favor of the passage via the great
warm current of the Pacific, the 44 gulf stream " of
that ocean, the Kuro-Siwo, which sweeps from the
equator up through Behring Straits, carrying its
gigantic volume of wanned water, it ia supposed,
into the unfrozen Polar sea. For several hundred
miles north of the Straits whalers have found open
water, extending as far as the eye could reach.
Tbe western side of this continent being much
warmer on the same parallel of latitude than the
eastern, it is likely that an open course will be
found under ordinary circumstances much higher
np than on this side. All that is necessary, on
Captain Bent's theory, to reach the pole, is to keep
in this current, by means of test Bounding with a
thermometer, sailing or drifting with it At times
-the course of a ship would be obstructed by float
ing ice. but by waiting till it thawed or broke up,
or forcing a path through it, tbe explorer would at
last certainly gain Lis goal so Captain Bent
thinks. Arctic researches have hitherto run too
much in a rut. "Every expedition has. tried the
eastern passage, and has failed. It i3 true that Dr.
Hayes and a single companion did get so far as to
see the shores of the unfrozen ocean, after travel
ing hundreds of miles on sledges ; bnt there is
plenty of room for doubt whether a ship or steamer
or any other national craft can make its way to
the same point by an eastern route. Therefore we
say, by way of change from tbe dull routine of
Arctic adventure, let the Kuro-Siwo be tried for
once. It may turn out that Bhering Straits is the
true portal through which mankind can pierce the
heart of the polar mystery.
London, April 22 Tbe Fenians have threatened
vengeance against the Pall Mall Gazette, on account
of the vigorous course taken by that journal in
favor of enforcing the law for the protection of
life and property in Ireland. Tbe propietore of
the Gazette have asked the authorities for protec
tion, and the police nightly patrol that vicinity.
A house In that neighborhood, supposed to be a
base of the Fenian Society, is very closely watched.
There is considerable excitement, and tbe Fenians
are unusually active. Seizures of arms and other
war material were made by the authorities yester
day at Manchester and Newcastle.
Madrid, April 22. The Orleanists think Mont
pensier's chances for the throne of Spain improved
by bis duel with Prince Henri.
Vienna. April 23. There is a strong movement
in Tyrol for secession from the Roman Church.
This is because the question of Infallibility is ex
pressed in open council.
Paris, April 24. The Paris Journal publishes
the Emperor's address to Frenchmen, declaring
that the Constitution of 1852, which was drawn up
by virtue of the powers given him, and ratified by
eight millions of voters, has procured for France
18 years of calm and prosperity which have not
been without glory. It secured order and left the
way open to more improvements. The Emperor
says : I, myself, believe to-day, that anything done
without your consent is illegal. The Constitution
of imperial and democratic France may be reduced
without your consent, your legislation will have
the advantage of rendering definite the program
already made, and placing beyond the Influences
of political fluctuations the principle of rovtrn-
