Brightly, brightly the moonbeam slimes
o7i the castle turret wail:
Darkly, darkly the spirit pines,
Deep, deep in its dungeon's thrall.

To the warder's drowsy strain,
And thinks or home, and heaves a sigh
For his own bleak hills again.
Sweetly swectlv the spring-flowers spre-,)

Slowly, siowlv thc sere leaves fade,

AK lowly lies his banner bright,

And dim is the sword that in the light,

But place his foot upon the nlaiu.^

ter of a General.
Madame Olympe Audouard, a Parisian lady,
distinguished as a traveller and author, made
a visit to this country in 1SGS. It will be re?
membered that she lectured several times at
the theatre ol'the Union League Club in New
York City. She is witty and beautiful, and
was favorably received. Pince her return to
France she has written? book, which has just
been published, and is sent to us from Paris.
? The author, on account of her sex, had most
favorable opportunities for observation of
Mormon life, character and manners, and she
tells us much that is new and Interesting.
The following is an account in her own
words of her flrst entrance into a Mormon
household, and of whit followed:
The great Mormon chief, kuowing that Mr.
Durand would arrive at Salt Lake City with a
numerous party, in which would be included
ladies, had given order by telegraph to each
Mormon settlement to prepare for us geod
lodging and food.
Wc were very curious to see these famous
Latter Day Saints, as they modestly term
themselves; all ?he more so when Mr. Durand
showed us a dispatch from Brigham Young as
"A Mormon family at Plum Creek is expect?
We exclaimed, with joy: "At last wc are
about to visit these households where seven?
teen women have but one lord !"
On arriving at the station mentioned we saw
a Mormon who already awaited us at his door.
He bade us welcome, and conducted us into a
room, in which a plentiful repast was spread.
A young woman threw a Anal glance over its
arrangement, made a gracious how to us, aud
was lost to sight in Hie kitchen.
"See the first?'' I said to myself; "she is
pretty enough. Who knows what thc others
I bravely entered thc kitchen, under pretext
of asking for some water. The young girl was
there, conversing with an old woman, who
was occupied in cooking. "My mother-in
law," she said to mc, introducing her. While
talking with these two J glanced slyly around to
find wliere the other women could Bc. "They
must be shut up somewhere,"' I said to myself;
"this Mormon, doubtless, does not wish to
shock us by the view of his complete harem."
The young woman having asked whether it
would be agreeable to me to make a slight
toilet in my"room before dinner, I cagerly~as
sented, hoping tobe able to see the others."
She conducted me into a very nice and very
simple little chambers "If yon wish," she said
to me, "to invite the other ladies to come up
stairs, the room of my mother-in-law is at their
I could not control my curiosty any longer;
so arming myself with all my courage, and at
the risk of seeming indiscreet. I asked of my
"But where are thc other wives ?"
She uttered a peal of laughter, and answered
me with a touch of raillery:
"Ah, this is only just. Madame; you suppose
that a Mormon with only one wife* is no Mor?
mon at all. But you see' our husbands possess
the right to take" many wives, without being
under the obligation to do so; thus I have
been married four years, and Charles finds he
has enough with ?ne wife. As for the rest,
ii you go to Salt Lake City you will become
convinced that all the stories written about us
. are fables invented by thc malevolence ol' our
I was astonished, and. lt must be confessed,
a little vexed. I descended to the dining
room. "Gentlemen and ladies," said I to my
fellow-travellers, "we arc sold, deceived; our
host has only one wife, and he has been mar?
ried four years !"
On the following day it happened that we
stopped at the house of another Mormon. All
our hopes centred here; he would present to
us, without doubt, his seventeen wives.
We were again deceived, but somewhat less
than before, however. On entering the din?
ing-room, we saw two young women setting
thc table; I discovered a third cooking.
I immediately addressed a word to one of
(hem: "Is this the mistress of the house to
whom I have the honor of speaking ?"
She answered me, smiling: "lt is one of the
mistresses of the house; for we are three !"
Three ! I breathed freely; I had before my
eyes, then, real Mormons.
"Hell myself forced to assume a somewhat
sad air, in saying: "Ali ! this other young
woman is your rival, then ?"
".My rival !" she answered, with a surprised
look, "and wherefore ? She is simply my sis?
ter, and doubly my sister; for she is tilts by
h'.o id and by the will of Cod, being, like my?
self, the wife of William." :
"What!" I exclaimed, "has your own sister
brought herself to consent to be your rival."
"But," she said, with a touch of impatience,
"she is not my rival at all. She is simply the
wife of my husband, Just the same as I am."
I perceived that, without intending it, I had
pained this pretty Mormon, who seemed to
find my aston'-'iment out of place, and I said
to her with the utmost gentleness: "Excuse
my curiosity, but I am French, and am very
desirous to "learn the manners of your country,
so ms to ascertain tho difference which exists
between the Mormonism of Salt Lake and that
The fact that I was French seemed to me to
aroute her sympathy. She changed her tone, :
and said very graciously: "Since you have
come from so far to visit us. von arc welcome; i
the Latter Day Saints, holli men and
"women, will receive you with pleasure, and I
. am happy to be the first to prove this to you.
. I shall pray God to send you the gift of* the
Holy Ghost, so that he may open your heart to
the new gospel."
The hope of converting me to Mormonism :
frightened mo horribly, and I could not restrain ,
myself from saying:
"Oh ! no, thank yon; I have had a French
husband; that is to say, I know Mormonism
by experience already, and I have bad enough
of it V
Madame Audouard became quite well ac
quaintcd with many leading Mormons, among
whom were Brigham Young, John W. Young,
and Brigham Young, Jr. She went to the
Grand Mormon Theatre in Salt Lake City with
Brigham's senior wife, who, as she savs". -has
seen sixty other wives enter into the eonjmral
domicile, and notwithstanding this sile vene?
rates her husband and is full of good will.'' .
Thc following story is told of one ol' these sixt v

At Salt Lake City, Madame Audouard met
;ho daughter of General La Harpe, a distin
xuished French ofiicer. For twenty-two years
she has been a Mormon. She left her husband
ind children, and abandoned an aristocratic
>ociul position in Kassia to lead a modest
uni precarious life in Utah. She was influenc
xl to take thi? course wholly by religious feei?
ng. She believes in Mormonism. Neither
?upplicalion or menace has been able to move
icr. She will not abaudon her home in the
IVest, although the French Minister in this
country once endeavored to procure her re

mon faith she was an ardent Catholic.
ONE OE THE LOST TRIBES.
One of thc " lost tribes'' has at last turned
np, safe and sound, in thc shape of a people
;alled the Falashas, who inhabit a district in
Abyssinia, which has long remained a Urra
Incognita and a blank space on the maps.
They were visited by Mr. Halevy, a very intel?
ligent French traveller, who has now commu?
nicated an account of his journey to the French
There were about 25O.00O of the Falacias.
Thev speak an Agna dialect called Fuliishina,
JV Kaillina, and into this language they have
translated a Gheez version of thc Old Testa?
ment. They do not practice polygamy. They
circumcise their male children on the seventh
day. Their proper names are derived from
Hebrew, Ghcez and Amharic. The institution
of purification is practiced; the children are
taught the Bible, psalms, prayers, and sacred
history. In the synagogues the sexes sit apart.
Incense is burned during Ute services. Their
religious hopes are turned to Jerusalem, but
their ideas of the Messiah are very indistinct.
They are wholly unacquainted with Hebrew,
and k?iow nothing of the ceremonies instituted
after the time of Ezra. Thev have a religious
literature written in the stylo of the Mldrath.
Thev keep the Sabbath rigidly; last on Mon?
days and Thursdays; keep the 9th of Ab to
commemorate the destruction of Jerusalem.
Thev wash before and say grace after eating;
they have a traditional molle of slaughtering
animals tor food; they practice commemora?
tive sacrifices on the holv days, and also for
the repose of the souls of the dead. Their
women enjov equality with men. They hold
slaves, but liberate them alter a servitude of
