I COULD HAVE LIVED FOREVER.
I dreamed last night I saw thee
Sweet spirit, thou wert there;
TIM ruby lip was smiling.
To step was light as air.
Thy easrt seemed like a fountain
Of waters gushing free.
And in thie eye such glances
As sparkle on the sea.
It twined thy golden tresses
With blossoms rich and rare,
Aa3d premed thy cheek. sweet maiden,
8,, beautifal, so fair.
The summer left its beauty,
And waited through the vale,
A fond of perfamed incene,
On ev'ry passing gale.
SI eimaId 6 lived forever
So radant aa loi
Was the valiev o' my dream;
The liquid songs ofgladness.
Fram birds o ev hue,
Were stealing throng the shadows
Of the cyprus aad the yew.
The hum of varied insects
Came sweetly on the ear.
Ihe wandering tones of music,
That evening zephyr. bear
The stre'lets marmuring whisper t
Was melody to me.
Forever as I hastened,
It told a tale of thee.
It said thou wert brighter.
Than the early morning hour
It raid that thou wert purer
Than the dew drop os the Bower.
It told me thou went gentle
As the sighing winad of even.
And liked thy youthful spirit
With the golden dreams of heaven.
Ah! how Iloved to linger
By that chrystal water's Bow,
And hear its chaunted cadence,
Its numbers soft and low,
Its echoes were the voices,
tif a low-breathed magic lute.
Or the sweetly warbling accent.

Mr. Editor,-Allow me to claim a small

-the purpose of correcting a slight masap
preheusion of-A Breeder" in respect to the
color of the sow from which Is descended
the beautiful white pig belonging to Mr.
Subleti. referred to in his article in your
June number. She was truly (as I am
informed) the nf5pring of a white Berk
shire boar. but her mother is not white, as
your correspondent describes ber. She is,
to use his own descriptive language, "dis
tinguished by a tawny ground, marked
with blackish spots"-a brief yet compro
bensive compendium of what Low and
others have said cf the Berkshire breed of
swine, Of the genuineness as Berkshires
of both parents I entertain not a doubt, but
that they are of a different variety from the
black Herkshires I am equally confident,
not having been subjected to the Siamese
cross, which constitutes the peculiar and
distinctive characteristic of the last men
ioned breed. The sow above referred to
is now in my possession. She has a litter
uf pigs by a very fine black Berkshire boar
of tbel:st blood, but not one of them is
marked after their sire. They are all spot
ted after the manner of their mother, and
partake of her symmetry and beauty in
form and appearance. I hild these in
just as high estimation as I do my Berk
shirr pigs of Siamise descent, yet I should
not think of sending them to a person or
dering in the usual terms. "Berkshire pigs."
because they are not of that precise varie
ty I bhould presume to be intended. They
are only China Lerkshires, while the oth
ers are Siamese Berkshires, Admit these
distinctions and all controversy about white
and black varieies would be at an end.
