Shall we welcome "merry" Christmas
In our sorrow-stricken home??
Shall our hearts forsake their shadow,
When thc merry season comes?
Shall we yield our dark remembrance,
When we hear the joyous chimes?
Shall our thoughts fly back, unfettered,
To tho golden olden time?
Shall we cross the yawning chasm,
Where the treasure dead are lain?
Shall our joy be free and boundless,
And our hearts be light again?
Shall our lips be glad and smiling.
And our words bo words of love?
Shall each face be but the mirror
Of a cloudless sky above?
No! the present is too real,
Ami the thoughts thai in it ?io
Are like the chains of mighty mountains.
Which are tow'cing to the sky.
Oh! who can climb' those summits,
And behold the other side,
Where joy and mirth lie buried
lu a valley, side by .side.
Tho' the hattie mav be over,
Yet its horrors still n main;
Tho' the cannon's voice be silent,
Still wc bear the clanking chain;
And tho graves of sleeping heroes,
And the exil.'s lonely houri),
Warn us that the days of plcasuro
But resemble faded Howers.
But tho' the merriment be vanished,
Let us welcome Christmas, still;
Let us help our burdened brothers,
With a braver heart and will;
Let us speak to one another
Words of comfort and of cheer;
Then our joy will bc the brighter,
Tho' 'tis mingled with a tear.
'Yond our thoughts, those mighty moun?
Which are tow'ring up on high,
Wo can see the brilliant star-gates,
As they glimruor in the sky;
And when we behold thc lustro
Of each celestial ray,
Then we know that death and sorrow
And despair shall pass away.
Then, here's a welcome, merry Christmas!
Come, and give us thought? of cheer,
Thoughts of how tho Infant Jesus
Came to share our burden here;
And, remembering all his sorrows,
Our own shall seem more light,
And our mountain thoughts shall vanish
Like a ti.-ion in the night.

THE ENGINEERS STOSY*
Ho bad biddon mc seek lier out,
and bo tho messenger of his for?
giveness. I had sooner have gone
down to the port of Genoa and taken
upon me the serge cup natl shotted
chain of any galley slave at bis toil
in the public works; but, for all'that, j
I did my best to obey him. I went
back, alone and on foot. I went
back, intending to say to her, "Gia
netta Coneglia, he forgave you; but
God never will.'' 3>ut she was gone.
The little shop was let to a fresh oc?
cupant; and the neighbors only knew
that mother and daughter bad left
the place quite suddenly, and that
Giulietta was supposed to be under
tho "protection" of the M?rchese
Lioredano. How I made inquiries
here au?! there-how I heard that
they had gone to Naples-and how,
being restless anil reckless of my
time, I worked my passage in a
French steamer, I followed her
how, having found the sumptuous
villa that was now hers, I learned
that she had left there some ten days
?nd gone to Paris, where the Mar
chose was etnbassador for tho Two
Siciles-how, working my passage
back again to Marseilles, and thence,
in part by the river aud in part by
the rail, I made my way to Paris
how, day after day, I paced the
streets and the parks, watched at the
einbassador's gates, followed his car?
ri ige, and, at last, after weeks of
waiting, discovered her address
how, having written to request un
iuterview, her servants spurned me
from her door and flung my letter in
my face-how, looking up at her
windows, I then, instead of forgiving,
solemnly cursed her with the bitter?
est curses my tongue could devise
and bow, this done, I shook the dust
of Paris from my feet, and became a
wanderer upon the face of the earth
-are facts winch I have now no
space to tell.
Tb^next six or eight years of my
life were shifting and unsettled
enough. A morose and restless man,
I took employment here and there,
as opportunity offered, turning my
hand to many tilings, and caring lit?
tle what I earned, so long ns tho
work was hard anil the change inces?
sant. First of all. I engaged myself
as chief engineer in one ot the French
Stearin rs plying between Marseilles
and Constantinople. At Constanti?
nople I changed to one of the Aus?
trian Lloyd's boats, and worked for
some time to and from Alexandria,
Jail'.i, and those parts. After that, I
fell in with a party of Mr. Layard's
men ?it Cairo, and so went up the
Nile ?ind took a turn nt the. excava?
tion of tho mound of Nimroud. Thou
I became a working engineer on the
desert line between Alexandria and
S te/.; and by-aud-by I worked my
passage ont to liombay, and took
service as ?ni engine-fitter on ono of
the great Indian railways. I stayed
a long time in India; that is to say, I
staye.I Hourly two years, which was a
long time for rn?; ?iud I might not
even have loft so soon, bat for the
war that was declared just then with
Russia. That tempted me; for 1
loved danmor and hardship ?is other
men love safety ?mil ease; and as for
my lifo, 1 bad sooner have parted
from it tiniii kept it any day. So I
emile straight back to England; be?
took myself to Portsmouth, where
my testimonials at once procured me
tho ?uk of berth I wanted. I wenl
ont to tho Crimea in the engine-room
of one of her Majesty's war steamers.
I served with the fleet, of course,
?while tho war lasted, and when it was
over, went wandering off again, re?
joicing in my liberty. Thin time I
went to Canada, and, after working
on a railway then in progress nour
tho Amerie.au frontier, I presently
passed over into the States; journey?
ed from North to South; crossed tue
Rocky Mountains; tried a month or
two of life in the gold country; und
then, being seized with a sudden,
aching, unaccountable longing to
revisit that solitary grave so far away
on the Italian coast, L turned my face
once more towards Europe.
Poor little grave! 1 lound it rank
with weeds, the cross half shattered,
the inscription half effaced. It was
as if no one had loved bini or remem?
bered him. I went bark to tho house
in which we had lodged together.
The same people were still living
there, and made me kindly welcome.
I stayed with them for some weeks.
I weeded, and planted, and trimmed
the grave with my own hands, and
set up a fresh cross in pure white
marble. It was the first season of
rest that I had known since I laid
him there; and when at last I shoul?
dered my knapsack and set forth
agaiu to battle with thc world, I
promised myself that, God willing,
I would creep bach to Rocca, when
my days drew near to ending, and be
buried by his side.
From hence, being, perhaps, a
little less inclined than formerly for
very distant parts, and willing to keep
within reach of that grave, lweut no
farther than Mantua, where I engaged
myself as an engine-driver on the
line then not long completed, between
that city and Venice. Somehow,
although I had been trained to thc
working engineering, I preferred in
these days to earn my bread by driv?
ing. I liked the excitement of it,
the sense of power, tho rush of the
air, the roar of the fire, the flitting
of the landscape. Above all, I en?
joyed to drive a night express. The
worse the weather, the better it
suited with my sullen temper. For
I was as hard, and harder than ever.
The years had done nothing to soften
me. They had only con tinned all
j that was blackest and bitterest in my
I continued pretty faithful to the
[ Mantua line, and had been working
on it steadily for more than seven
months, when that which 1 am about
-to relate took place.
lt was in the month of March.
The weather had been unsettled for
some days past, mid the nights
stormy; and at one point along the
line, near Ponte di Brouta, the
waters had risen and swept away
some seventy ?ards of ernbaukment.
Since this accident, the .trains hail
been obliged to stop ata certa in spot
between Padua and Ponte di Bren tn,
and tho passengers, with their lug?
gage, had thence to be transported in
all kinds of vehicles, by a circuitous
country road, to the nearest station
ou the other side of the gap, when
another train and eugine awaited
This, of course, caused great con?
fusion and annoyance, put all om
time-tables wrong, and subjected thc
public to a large amount of inconve
uieuce. In. the meanwhile au arm j
of navies was drafted to the spot, am
worked day and night to repair tht
damage. At this time I was driving
two through trains raeh day-namely
one from Mantua to Te nice iu th<
early morning, ard a return trait
from Venice to Mantua ia the after
noon-a tolerably full day's work
covering about one huudred am
ninety miles of grouud, and occupy
lng between ten and eleven hours,
was therefore not best pleased when
on the third or fourth day after th'
accident, 1 was informed that, in ad
dition to my regular allowance o
work, I should that evening be re
quired to drive a special train b
Venice. This special train, consist
ing of an engine, a single carriage
and a break-van, was to leave th
Mantua platform at eleven ; at Padu
the passengers were to alight and lim
post-chaises waiting to convey ther.
to Ponte di Bren ta; at Ponte d
Brent? another engine, carriage an
break-van were to be in readiness,
was charged to accompany ther
"Corpo di Baeco," said the der
who gave me my orders, "yon nee
not look so black, man. You ar
certain of a handsome gratuity. 1)
you know who goes with you?"
. "Not I."
"Not you, indeed! Why, it's th
Daca Loredano, tho Neapolitan en
"Loredano!" I stammered. "Wh:
Loredano? There was a M?rchese
"Certo. He was the Merohese L<
reda?o some years ago; but he. h?
come into his dukedom since, then.
"He must be a very old tuan L
"Yes, he is old; but what of tba
He is as hale and bright, and state
as ever. You have se? ubini before'
"Yes,," I said, turning .i way; '
have se;; nh ?ni-yea PS a ?. >. "
"You have bearii ot las mai ri.ige'
I shook :ny head.
Tin; clerk chuckled, rubbed li
hands, and shrugged his shoulder
"An extraordinary nf?air," he sai
"Made a tremendous esclandre atti
time. Ile married his mistress
quite a common, vulgar girl-a G
noese-very handsome; but not i
ceived, of course. Nobody vis:
"Married her!" I exclaimed. "Ii
"True?, I assura yon."
I put my band to my head. I felt
as if I had had a fall or a blow.
"Does she-does she go to-night?"
"O dear, yes-goes everywhere
with him-never lets him ont of her
sight. You'll see her-la bell Du?
el 1 essa!"
With this, my informant laughed,
and rubbed his hands again, and
went back to his oTico.
The day went by, I scarcely know
how, except that my whole soul was
in a tumult of rage and bitterness. I
returned from my afternoon's work
about 7:20, and, at 10:30, 1 was once
again at the station. Ihadexamined
tin1 engine: given instructions to the
.Fochisfr:, or stoker, about the fire;
seen to tito supply ?.>!' coal, and got
ail in readiness, when, just as I was
about to compare my watch with the
clock io the ticket-office, :.- hand was
laid upon my arm, and a voice in Hij?
"Are you the engine driver who is
going on with, this special train?"
1 had never seen the. speaker be?
fore, lb; was a small, dark man,
muffled up about the throat, with blue
glasses, a largo black heard, and his
hat drawn low upon his ej'es.
"You are a poor man, 1 suppose,"
he said, in a quick, eager whisper,
"and, like other poor men, would not
object to be bettor off. Would you
like to carn a couxde of thousand
"In what way?"
"Hush! You aro to stop at Padua,
arc you not, and to go on again at
Ponte di Brentu?"
"Suppose you did nothing of the
kind. Suppose, instead of turning
off the steam, you jump off the en?
gine, and let thc train run on?"
"Impossible! There are seventy
yards of embankment gone, and-"
"Basta! I know that. Save your?
self, and let the train run on. It
would be nothing but an accident."
I turned hot and cold; I trembled:
mv heart beat fast, and mv breath
"Why do you tempt me?" I fal?
"For Italy's sake," he whispered
"for liberty's sake. I know you art
no Italian: but, for all that, you maj
be a friend. This Loredano is otu
of his country's bitterest enemies.
Stay, here are the two thousand flo
I thrust his hand back fiercely.
"No-n<t!" I said. "No blood

for italy nor for money, but for ven
"For vengeance!" he repeated.
At this, moment, the signal wa;
given for backing up to the platform
I sprang to my place upon the eugun
without another word. When I agait
looked towards the spot where wi
had been standing, the stranger wa
I saw them take their places-duki
and duchess, secretary and priest
valet and maid. I saw the station
master bow them into thc carriage
and stand, bare-headed, beside th
door. I could not distinguish thei
faces; the platform was too dark, am
the glare from the engine tire to
strong; but I recognized her state!
figure and the poise of her head
Had I not been told who she was,
should have known her by thos
traits alone. Then the guard's whist!
shrilled out, and the station-mas*?
made his last bow. I turned th
steam on, and we started.
My blood was on fire. I nolongt
trembled or hesitated. I felt as
every nerve was iron, and every in
pulse instinct with deadly purpose
She was in my power, and I woul
be revenged. She should die-sin
for whom i had stained my soul wit

consequently renders the blood pure. !t !
is said, on high authority, that .'man iy?
sooner begin? to live than be begins to
die, and that the characteristics of the
living organism ari; ceaseless chango and
ceaseless waste." It is obvious, therefore,
tn every reflecting mind, that unless the
blood is pure, in supplying the waste tis?
