Midway between the snow-peaks and the alley,
Among the mists, with cliff-smpported base
Her' stands my ermitage-- summ*r chalet,
With worldward :ookind casemeta.
Below, the vineyards laugh with garlands verral,
And call tie bwitrer from his rocky fuasttas:
Above, reigr s Freedom, 'mid her enows eteraal,
b. Templed in light and vastness.
SBound her pure shrines of everlasting whiteness
The w mds are chanting from their unseen
e psalter :
re The sun alone, in robes of fitting brightness,
as Performs at these high altars.
'e Through the blue ailes, attendant where he
is, The moon bears up his long and trailing vest
Where crowding constellations through the arches
Look on with prayerful gesture.
From everlasting unto everlasting,
And freedom sanctifying all the region,
A summer feast, a winter Prayer and tasting
This is the Alps' religion.
Pure as a visior in an angel's dreaming,
With laughing lips and eyes of wondrous lustre,
She rises with her locks of sunlight streaming
Where watery pearl-drops cluster.
Tte lovig vapors, thin as gossamer gauzes,
Float round her form and carefully enfold her,
While through her veil, with momentary pauses,
the smiles on the beholder.
We know not when, amid the boiling torrent,
We find our life stream tortured into madness.
What loveiy sprites from out the gulfs abhorrent
May rise with rainbow gladness.
Still let me gaze: it is no idle fancy
-urg by the bard to win a transient laurel,
Nor y t the thoughtless painter's necromancy ;

singularly enough the boy of the period has es

is certainly unaccountable, for he is vastly more

A LITTLE DINNt R IN A HOR..
It fell out on a day in this last autumn that I had
to go down from hLodom to a place of seaside re
sort, on an boar's business, secompanled b my
esteemed friend Bullfinch. Let the ice of see.
side resort be, for the nonce, ealled Nameleaton.
I had been lettering about Paris Is very hot
weather, pleasantly breakfassig in the ope adir
in the garden of the Palaite Royal or the Tuileries,
pleaaentuy dinm in the open air In the glysita
Fields, p asel taking my ciger and Ismoaade
in the open air on ths Italian Boulevard towards
the small bours after midnight. Bullfinch -an ex
cellent masn of business-had summoned me back
acreos the channel to transact this said hour's
business at Nameleaston, and thus It fell out that
Bullfinch and I were in a railway carriage to
gether on our way to Namelesston, each with his
return ticket in his waistoot pocket.
Bays Bullfinch: " I have a proposal to make.
Let us dine at the Temeratre."
I asked Bullfinch, did be recommend the Teme
raire? Inasmuch as I had not been rated on the
books of the Temeraire for many years.
Bullfinch declined to accept the respoasibility of
recommending the Temeraire, but on the whole
was rather sanguine about it. He " seemed to
remember," Bullfinoh said, that he had dined well
there. A plain dinner, but good. Certainly not
like a Parisian dinner (here Bullfinch obviously
became the prey of want of confidence), but of
its kind very fair.
1 appealed to Bullfinch's intimate knowledge of
my wants and ways to decide whether I was
usually ready to be pleased with any dinner, or
for the matter of that-with an)thing that was
fair of its kind and realpy what it claimed to be.
Bullfinch doing me the honor to respond in the af
lirmative, I agreed to ship myself as an Able
Trenchermsan on board the Temeraire.
" Now, our plan shall be this," says Bullfinch,
with his forefinger at his nose. " As soon am we
gef to Namele.stos, we'll drive strabght to the
Temeraire, and order alittle otnner in an hour.
And as we shall not have more than enough time
in which to dispose on it comfortably, what do
you say to giving the house the best opportunities
of serving it hot and quickly by dining in the cof
What I had to say was, Certainly. Bullfinch
(who is by nature a hopeful constitution) then
began to babble of green geese. But I checked
