Miller had hit firat wide hiwring through j

relnte thia a pler.at.t fact -not tut one
very valuable, to Mr. Miller orourw lvea.

We doubt it' it ran be ahowu that tliere
ia anything new of fu.-hi"ii in Joauiii
Miller. The larger number nf bisoeni tie fueling expressed here it w simple
are writwn in the octosyllabic measure, so and genuine, and marks the man under
familiar half a century agi iu Scott' and uealh or alave the poet. And thi us-
Byrou'a and Moore's romance, w ith,
however, a freedom and lurgenoss of more
natural niovemeut often visible. Hia
people are hardly to he considered of al
together new birth in romance. His
man are chiefly outl iwsamong the Pacific
mountains, a Ilynm's were among the
Greek Ulauda men
"Linking un virtue with a tliouaand Crimea,"
Or men, as Mr. Miller hi maelf repeat it,
"Who erred, yet bravely dared to err;
A niuiiaul of that early few
Who held no crime, or curse, or vice.
As nark aa that of cowardice;
With Mendings of iho worst and Iai4s
sTfaullaand virtues that have bleat,
Or eurw-d, urllirilled the human breast."
Hi women, again, are uearly all of a
tiatU-rn, a Ilynm's heroine were. One
of them occur iu each em marvelous
pure (brown muidens), tierfcct, iu fiaiture
and form, with a singular, and, to more
cis iliied ludica, enviable wealth of hair,
faithful and self-devoted to the broteted
rueu, living and dying for theae who
were willing to live a little white ; but
never die with them; and, with hut two
or three exception, all represented to be
last of the Moiitetumaa' line, or, as some
Virginian lailiti boast of the blood of IV
cahoutau, claiming to havtrthe celestial
liliaid of Moiih-tuiua iu their vein.
And the turira told of theae tneu and
wouieuar not especially novel ; they are
much like those which turned their head
and fired to the stomach of Dvrou't road-

the female side, bear in mind,) iudceil,

Tiki much can not lie said in praise of
aajre brings us luck to afiu l in our mind
when we beoan this article. Mr. Miller's

ita pleasant little coincidence tlmt in

Twenty five year ago, say a letter
writer, a eoniany of young people, far
mer son auJ daughters, to the numlicr
of thirty-two, drove in the early morn
ing down to the ancient little city of Am
boy, New Jersey, to embark in a loop
for sail down the water of one of the
prettiest bays that wash the Atlantic
ciatst. Arrival at Sandy Hook, they
feasted, fidicd, frolicked and flirted, too,
no doubt, for the wavh tub and dairy
can never deprive the daughter of Eve
of their nerogative. At the close of the
ufternoon they prepared for a glorious
j bath in the water of Florida Grove, the
young men retiring round the point,
, leaving their fuir friemla iu uneiuliar-
1 raasetl enjoy iiientvf the utuation. Upon
, their return the young farmer taw a
sight that might well strike terror to the
atoutiwt heart. The cruel undorto had
sucked tlie poor ,'irl down to their deaths,
and the wave hod cast their bodi I on
the lands, from whence tiiey hail dahed
ao merrily into the rolling turf a short
half hour before, at not one of the whole
party was left alive. Sadly the young
men bore the remain of suter, friend,
aud sweet! cart back to their home now
'made dosohite indeed, and widespread
i wa the grief aud anguish iu the hitherto
happy township of Piscataway. There
wa not a family thut did not mouru the
; lo of a beloved child and daughter, and
such waa the shock produced by the tor-
rtble occurrence throughout the whole

The brightest of these I will now

wondering much what it meant. Suit-

the feeling of all. Th children wel

which waa tha moat natural uei formauoe

A story come from Athen about
Greek brigandage very refreshing to hon
est people, and suggestive of the question
w hether women might not govern Greece
better than its men. One ofthecuies
of modern Hella, a everybody know,
ia the unextirpated guild of brigand',
who infest the laud, defying' the govern
ment, suppressing cooitner , demoralis
ing the peasantry, and robbing and mur
dering strangcrt or rich native. One of
these unlutnged villain lately captured
the youthful son of a widow woman uf
property, well knowu upon the bonier.
The usual message wa sent down from
the hill ; the brigand chief must have
one hundred drachma by a certain day,
or the life of the boy he was only twelve
years old would pay the forfeit. A
usual, too, the last hope which a mother
could cherish in such a frightful position
waa the chnnce of government help.
The wretchedly weak administrations
which play at "in and out" in Athens
ttill allow these scoundrels to hold the
roadt and passes of the country, and this
poor woman had to trust to her own
courage aud wits. Neither were want
ing ; there was tome true old Odyssean
blood in her, and she hit ujwn plan for
saving both her child and her drachma.
She had a brother, a young fellow of per
fect pluck, though hi cheek were as

found the scoundrel waiting, with the
captive lad bound band 'and foot beside
him. The woman first ascertained by
cunning queatiuus tliot the man was re
ally alone, and then uttered, with many
supplications, her money and the preseut
of cake aud fruit. The villuiu took the
latter and munched while he counted out
