A NSW POEM BY LONGFELLOW.
One hundrel vears ago. and something more.
In Queen stree*. Porismorh, at tifr tavern door,
Neat as a pin anu blooming a? a rose.
Stood Mistress sta vere In her furbelows.
Just as her cuckoo clock was striking nine.
Above her head, resplendent ot' the sign,
The portrait of the tari ol Halifax,
I n scarlet coat and periwig of dax.
Survered a' leisure a 1 her varied charms.
Her cap. her bodice, i er white folded arms,
And hair resolved, though he was pas* hts prime,
And rather damaged by thc lapse or time,
To fall down at her feet, and to declare
The passion that h?d driven him to despair.
For from his lofty a tatito he had seen
Stavera, her husband, dressed in bot'l? green,
Drive his new Flying Stagecoach, four-in-hand,
Down the long lane and out Into thc land.
And knew tiat. he was far upon the way.
To Ipswich snd to B-ston on the bay !
Just then the medltatl "-s or the earl
Were Interrupted by a little gin.
Barefooted, ragged, with neglected hair,
Eyes run of laughter, neck and shoulders bare
A thin slip of a girl, like a new moon.
Sure to be rounded li.to beauty soon;
A creature men would worship and adore,
Though now in mean habiliments she bore
A pall of water dripping through the street.
And bathing, as Bhe went, her naked feet.
It was* pretty picture, full or grace,
The s ender form, the delicate, thin race;
The swaying motion, as she harried by;
The shining ."?et, ihe laughter lu ser eye,
Tha". o'er her race lu linples gleamed and
As in her pail the shifting sunbeams danced,
And with uncommon feelings of delight
The 1 arl of Balifax rxhetd the sight.
Not so Dame stavera: for he heard her say
These words, or thought he did, as plain ai day:
?'0 : Martha Hilton ! Fie ! how dare you '?o.
About t he town bair dressed and looking so ?"
At which the gypsy laughed, and straight re?
"No matter how I look; I yet shall ride
In my own chariot, ma'am." And on the child
The Earl of Halifax benignly smiled.
As with her heavy burden she passed on,
Looked back, then turned the corner, and was
Waat next upon that memorable day
Drew his august attention, was a gay
And brilliant equipage, tint flashed and spun,
The silver harness glittering In the sun.
Outriders with red jackets, lithe and lank,
Pounding the saddles as they rose and sank,
While au alone within tue charlot sat
A portly person wi:h three-cornered hat,
A ( rlmson velvet coat, h?a 1 h gh in air.
Gald-headed cine, and ni ce'y powdered h Hr,
And diamond buckles sparkling at bis knee),
Dignified? sute.y, florid, much at ease.
Onward the pageant swept, and as it passed
Fa r Mistress Slavers cont tested low and fast;
For this was Governor Wentworth, driving down
To L.t'ie Harbor, just beyond the town,
Where his great house stool looking out to sea
A goidfy place, where lt was good to be.
It was a pleasant mansion, an abode
Near and yet hidden from the great high road.
Sequestered among t.oes. a noble pile,
Baronial and colonial in tts style;
Ga'.) es and dormer windows everywhere.
And stacks and chimneys rising high in air;
Pandean pipes, on wh ch all winds that blew
Made mourn ul music ihe whole winter through.
Within, unwonted splendors met the eye,
Panels and flo<-s of oak, and mest ry : r
Carved chtmney-piecf s, where on brazen dogs
Bevelled and roared the Christmas Are o: lo?s;
Doora opening Into darkness unawares.
My teilous pss-iages, and flights of 6t?trs;
And on the walls, in heavy glided frames,
The ancestral Wentworths with old fcc.lpture
Such was the mansion whfre the great man dwelt,
A widower and childless; and he telt
The lo ne. in ss, the uncongenial gk om
That like a tresence haunted every room;
For though not given to weakness, he could feel
Tue pain of woun j that ache because they heal.
The years ernie and the years went-seven la all
And passed in cloud and sunshine o'er the hall;
The dawns their splendor through its chamber
The sunsets flashed its western windows red.
The snow was on ita roof?, the wind, tba rain,
Its woodlands were in leaf and bare again:
Moons waxed and waned, the lilacs bloomed and
In ti.e bro'd river flowed and ebbed the tide.
Ships weat to sea. and ships came home from sea,
And the stow years sailed by and ceased to be.
Afld all these ye us had Wartha Huron served
In the great house not who ly unobserved:
By day, by night, the sliver crescent grew, .
Th ugi hidden by clonds, her light still shining
A maid or all wo k. whether oar;e or fine,
A servant who made service seem divine !
Through her each room was fatr to look upon,
The mirrors gila ened and the brasses shone,
Trie very knocker o i the ourer door.
If she but pa^e >, was brlgater thin berore.
And now the ceaseless turning rr the mill
Of Time, th it never for ai hour stands still,
Ground ont the governor'* sixtieth biri dav,
And powdered his brown hair with f liver gray.
The robin, the forerunner or the spring*.
Tee blue bird with his jocund car. Pug.
The restless swallows building lu the eves.
The (t'ldtn buttercups, the gracs. the leaves,
The lilac tossing In the winds or May
All welcome this majestic holiday.
He gave a splendid banque', servvd on plate,
teach as became the governor of the Mate,
Who represented England and the king,
And was mag; inc nt tn everything.
He had invited all h a friends and peers
The Peprerels. the Langdons, and the Lears,
The spat haw- s, the PeuhaHows, and the rest
For why repeal the name of every guest ?
But I mast mention one. in bands and sown.
The rector there, the Reverend Arthur Brown
Of the Established Church; wi h smll ng face
He sar. beside the governor and said crae ?;
And (hen the fr?st went on. as ot tie? s do,
Bot ended as n> ne oth?r I e'er knew.
Wh/n they had drank the king with many a
The governor whispered in a servant's ear.
Who disappeared, and presently there stool
Within the room, in perfect womanhood,
A malden, modest and yet s.df-posse-aed,
Touthful and be.tutirm, ami simply dressed.
Can this be Mar ha iMton * I- must be !
Tes. Martha Hilton, and no other the :
Dowered with the beauty or her twenty years,
Bow lady like, how queen like she appears;
The pale, thin crescent of the da- s gone by
Is Dian now m all her maj 'sty :
Tet scarce a guest perceived that she was there,
Until the g vernor, rising rrom hla chair.
Played ?lightly with his rani rs, then looked down,
And eald unto the Reverend Arthur Brown:
"1 his la my birthday; lt shall likewise be
My wedding-day, and you aha 1 n an y me !"
Toe listening guests were greatly mystified,
None more so than the rector, who replied :
"Marry you? Yes. that wes a pleassn*. task,
Te ur excellency: but to whom. I ask ?.'
The governor answered. "To this lady here;"
And beckoned Martha Hilton to draw near.
She came and stood, ali blushes, at his aide.
The rector paused. The impatient geve~nor
"This ls the lady; do you hesitate?
Then I corn i and y ,u as ch et nngi=trate."
The rector read the servite loud and clear;
"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here,"
And so on to thc end. At his command,
On the fourth Anger ot ber fair left hand
The governor pi <c d the ring, and that was all;

words: 'ir any of the duties required to be per?
formed lu this act oa t r before a certa n day by
any officer here n named cannot, ror w.nt or
proper time, be so ptrforme I, the State Auditor,
with the approval ot the Governor, cpon proper
evidence of the necessity or the same, may extend
the time as long as mjy be necessary thereror.'
An examination or this s ctio i will, I think, lead
to the conclusion thit lt has reference simply and
only toan extension of time necessary ror the tax
otneers to perform theji duties, and was n t In?
tended to, anl does not in ter i.s. authorize an
extension of time hr the payment cf taxes. I am
aware that a different construction has been acted
upon for the pas: three years, but now that the
question ls presented to me for the first Hine for
my opinion, 1 am obliged to say that I do not
tUlnk tali section gives' authority to you, upon
th? approval of the Governor, to extend the time
for any other purpose than to allow the tax offi?
cers to complete their prescribed duties."
The law as construed by the Attorney-General,
la whose opinion I fully concur, does not allow
the exercise of discretionary power to any officer
In this matter. I would therefore once more bring
to the notice of all the importance or prompt and
punctual PAYMENT O? TAXES, as under the de?
cision above quoted I ranntt do otherwise than
execute the law, as provide l ror in the 97th sec?
tion of the Tax Act, passed september 15,1868,
which say j that the penalty shall attach upon all
taxes and os essments not paid on or before the

ance, to eradicate and prevent dandruff, to pro?
mote tlsa growth of the hair and atop Its tailing
out. It ls entirely bannies*, and perfectly free
from auy pols .-nous sub.-tance, and wllUherefore
take the place of ali the dirty and unpleasant
preparations now in use. Numerous testimonia s
have been sent us from many of our most promi?
nent c.tlzens, some sf which arc subjoined. In
everything In which the articles now lu use are
objectionable, CRYSTAL DISCOVERY is perfect.
It ls warranted to con'alu neither Sugar of Lead,
Sulphur or Nitrate of Silver, lt does not soil tve
clothes o/ scalp, ls agreeably perfumed, and
makes one or theb st dressings for the Hair In
use. It restores the color of the Hair "more per

and always does so la rrom tr,ree to ten days,
virtually feeding the rJota of the Hair with all
the nourishing qualities necessary to Its g'owth
and healthy condition; it reitjres thc decayed
and Induces a new growth of the Hair more posi
lively than anything else. The application of
this won lerrul discovery also produces a pleasant
an 1 cooling effect on the scalp and gives the Hair
a pleasing and elegant appearance.
We call especial attention to the fact that a
limited number of trial bottles will be given way
gratuitously to those wishing to try lt. You will
