No BoundB of wheols or hoof-befct breaks
Tbc Bilehce of tbo summer day,
As by thelovelieBt of all lakes
I while the idle hours away.
I pnco the leafy colonade,
Wherj level brauchen of tho plane
Ab >vc mo weave a roof of shade
Impervious to tho sun and rain.
At times a sudden rush of ?tr
jj Flutters the lazy leaves o'crhead,
And glenms.of sunshine toss nnd flaro
Like torches down the path I tread,
By Somariva's garden goto
I make the marble stairs my Beat,
And hear the water, as I wait,
Lapping the steps beneath my feet.
The undulation sinks and swells,
Along the stony parapets, *
And far away tho floating bells
Tirklc upen the fishers' nets.
Silent and slow, by tower and town,
The freighted barges come nnd go,
Their pendent shadows gliding down
Ey town nnd tewcr submerged below.
The bills sweep upward from the shore,
AVith villas scattered ono by ?no
Upon their woedod spurs, and lower
Ilcllaggio blazing in the sun.
And dimly seen, a tangled mass
Of walls and woods, of light and shade,
Stanc's backoniug up the Stolvio Pass
Vnrcr.na with its white cascade.
I aek myself, Is this a dream ?
Will it all vanish into air ?
Is there a land of such supremo
And perfect beauty anywhere t
Sweet vision ! Do not fade awny;
Linger until my heart shall take
Info itself the Summer day,
And all tbo beauty of tho lake.
Linger until upon my brain
In stamped an image of the Bccne;
Then fade into the air again,
And be as if thou hadBt not boon.

We find tho following going the rounds of
Quaint Lcrrtn. Fnou Mb. Likcoln.?The
r.inghcmton Times prints a copy or an ori
ginal letter of President Lincoln, now in
the poBsossion of Hon. Henry R. Mygalt, of
Oxford, to whom it was given by the confi
dential clerk of the secretary of war, soon
after it was written. It road as follows :
Executive Mansion,, "t
Washington, Nov. 11. 1861. /
Hon. Seeetaryof War: MY Dr.mi Sir?I
personally wish Jacob R. Freer, of New
Jersey, to be appointed a co'onel for a col
ored regiment, and this regardless of wheth
er be can tell tho exact shade of Julius
Ctcaar'a hair. A. Lincoln.
Like a good many other things attributed
to Mr. Lineoln, this is a fair subject of
doubt, since there was no talk of employing
colored troops till tho latter part of 1802.
Mr. Lincoln could not havo made such a
recommendation in 1801.
A A Marshficld, a short time before
bis death Mr Webster gave utterance
'The man who has not abandoned
himself to senuality feels, as years a d
vonce Mid old ago comes on, a greater
Jove for mother eartb, a greater willing
i-csu and even desire to return to bei bo
som, and mingle with this universal
lrame of things from which be sprang.'
'As he spoko these words;' says Mr,
Felton, 'with Blow and solemn tone, he
seemed to look upon tho face of naturo
as upon the face of a living being, to
, whom he was bound by the ties of a
-conscious friendship aud immortal love;
nnd the soft wind breathing with a
warmth like summer, through the un
changed leaves of the neighboring treos
whispered an audible answer to the
voice and look of lovo of the dying states
In the Stokes oase tho board of phy
sicians to whom was roferred tbo ques
tion of his sanity, made tho following
'That we find Edward F Stokes labor
ing under an abnormal condition of
mind, amounting to 'partial idciuional
insanity' on two subjects, religion and
politics; and that this abnormal oo )di
tion of mind will only be increased by
longor confinement, either in jail or an
asylum; further, that in tho opinion of
this board, Edward F Stokes is not in
capacitated for the management of his
Judgo Cooke has reserved his opinion
as to tho liberation of Stokes
