There was ones a little farmer
Living underneath the mountains:
Underneath the Alpine shadows,
In the land called Pie di Monte.
There the little farmer, Victor
Victor, son ofCarl' Alberto,
Aided by Cavour, his bailiff,
Kept his little Arm in order
Kept his little patch ofgarden,
With its rows ofSavoy-Cabbage,
Trimmed bis little bnsh of laurel,
Reared his little row of pig-sties.
Beared his little row ofhen-roosts.
It befelone winter morning
There was trouble in the pigsties
Grunting of the boar, Humpnrmnpha,
Squealing ofthfcsaw, PigwiggiRg
There wasflutteringia the hen-roosts,
Crowing of thecock, Cockhino,
Clucking of the hen, Dorkinga,
Fluttering of the bantam, Sebright,
Grunting, squealing, crowing, clucking,
That the little fanner wakened
From his shoring 'twixt the blankets,
From his snoozing in the feathers,
Poked his head Out of the window,
Far as his moustachios suffered—
His moustachios, red and foxy,
Like two marling-spikes protruded—
Poked out his head out of the window,
To discover what the shindy:
Wherefore squeals the sow, Pigwiggin
Why suchflutteringin the hen-roosts
Crowingof the cock. Cochino,
Cluckingof thehen, Dorkinga,
Fluttering of the bantam, Sebright
Soon his eye discerned the reason
Hovering grim outside his hedgerow,
Gathered as in act of swooping,
Saw he Austria, the Vulture,
Black of plume and double-headed.
Vulture, whom irreverent sailors,
Sailors heraldry ignoring,
"Split-crow" oftenest entitle.
Very angry waxed the farmer,
Victor, sonof Carl' Alberto,
To Cavour the bailiff called be
"Take thy gun, Cavour the bailiff,
Lo' 'tis Austria, the Vulture!
Double-beaked and iron-taloned,
Lean of head and herring-guttod.
With designs both black and bloody,
'Gainst our hen-roosts and our pig sties,
Hovers she so near our borders.
Nut without the best of reasons
Grunteth sore the boar, Humphrumpha,
Squeaketh shrill the sow, Pigwiggin,
Croweth clear the cock Cochino,
Clucketh wild the hen, Dorkinga,
Fluttersfiercethe bantam, Sebright''
As he spoke,ha donned his garments,
Garments ofa martial fashion
Never was so fierce a fanner—
Pigeon-breasted as tobosom,
And wasp-waisted as to middle,
With mou tachios red and foxy,
Like two marling-spikes set cross-wise,
And a marling-spike of beard, too,
At right angles to his moustache.
So came victor from thecottage,
Victor, son ofCarl' Alberto,
Full of wrath against the Vulture,
Waiting till Cavour the bailiff
Fetched the gun wherewith to shoot him.
When high o'er him rang the hurtle
As ofpinions wide and waving,
And up-looking to his right hand,
And up-looking tohis left-hand,
Either side he saw an Eagle—
One was ashy-grey offeather,
Worn be looked Rod somewhat draggled,
—A Robert Macaire of Eagles—
But with eye of latent mischief,
And withtalonssharp though sheathed
Black the other was and burly,
Double-beaked, and armed his pounces,
One with sword and one withsceptre
Somewhat puzzled looked the farmer,
At this affluence of Eagles,
Wondering if inspired by hunger,
Hankeringforthe bear, Humphrumpha,
Craving for the sow Pigwiggin,
They thus hovered near ha borders.
"Fear not," quoth the ash-grey Eagle,
With the eye of latent mischief,
"Not for plunder camewe hither
Not like Austria the Vulture
Not for pigs, and not for poultry,
I am called the Eagle, Louis,
At Boulogne I imped my pinions
Caged at Ham I burst my fetters,
8oared to the Elysee Bourlon,
Thence unto the Tuileries flying,
There I hold my giddy eyrie
Swooping whence I come to aid thee,
Guard thy pigs and guard thy poultry,
From foul Austria, the Vulture:
With the Eagle, Alexander,
Eagle from the banks of Neva,
From the muddy fiats of Axoff,
And the ice-cliffs ofthe Irkutsk.
We are here with common purpose
To defend thy pigs and poultry,
FromfoulAustria, the Vulture,
We are proofagainst temptation,
Be it pig or be it turkey,
Goose duckling, hen orchicken
So, withfoldingoftheir pinions,
Sharpof beak and keen oftalon,
Gravelr stooped the brace of Eagles
Either hand the little farmer,
Victor, son of Carl' Alberto,
Who to this bird and to that bird,
as one that, knowing Latin,
(Which he didn't,) would have murmured,
"Quit Custodiat Citstodett"
But whatfollowedsuch alliance,
And what ofsuch protection,
Whatbefel the little farmer.
How the pigs and poultry liked it,
Yet remainsbid in future
Vet remains for Punch tosing of,
Both for pigs, and poultry's warning.
Andforlittle far.i'ers' also.

LIFE IN WASHINGTON.
One of the most recherche and ele
gant entertainments of the season came
off last evening at the residence of
Oen. Cass—Mr. and Mrs. Ledyard,
daughter and son-in-law of Oen.
issuing the cards and doing the honors
on this occasion.
It is not perhaps generally known
that the home of this distinguished
statesman is enriched with priceless
treasures of art. Mr. Cass (junior)
has resided for many years, at Rome,
as American ambassador, and seems
to have endeared himself to the Ital
ian nobility by rendering them import
ant service, during the revolution and
in return has received for kindness
rendered during that distracting peri
od, an presents, many exquisite gems of
art, which no amount of money could
have purchased. These, with the op
portunities Mr. C. has had for collect
ing chef cTcenvres of the great masters,
have^ been forwarded to his father,
forming a collection more rare and
splendid than can be found in this
On entering the drawing-rooms last
evening, we were struck with the airverity
of elegance and refinement The light
was profuse, but it came softened
through glass shades and while every
object in the room was distinctly and
minutely visible, the effect of moon
light was no more soft and dreamy.—
Do you feel a desire to join us, dear
reader, to look around with us, and
bave upon your wondering sight:
Ages of glory pour their gathered light,
The life-like statuto.and the breathingbust,
TheOiolumn rescued from defiling dust,
And marbleformsof heavenly mold
Thatflashedon Genius glowing thoughts
Immortal spirits, in whose deathless song
Florence and Athens yet their re ghn pro
While in their tongueless eloquence they
Relics of Rome I how hapless Athens fell.
Canova's hand here mimic life imparts
To the rude breathless stone while Gui
Bids the rough canvas, meeting into light
Beam in its blended coloring on our sight
From those sweet isles that gem the
Too bright and lovelyforthe homes
Toour blest country borne—aspoil divine
Adorn our hearts, and thus enrich thelain
In the "saetum sanctorum" of this
temple of taste—the front diawing
room on the left—the walls are decora
ted with a select tew of the best paint
ings of the best masters and in theMr.
four corners of the apartment, and on
the walls, are marble busts and medall
ions of the rarest ancient sculpture.
Above the door, in a gorgeous frame,
hangs the divinity of the place, A
Christ crowned with thorns." We
turned from all around to devote an
exclusive attention to the celestial ex-
ression of this face. It is an original
Guido," which belonged to Car
dinal Fesch, Napoleon's uncle, and
was purchased by Mr. Cass from
Charles Bonaparte, Prince of Canino.
Mr. C. has been offered 92,000 for it
We gradually lost the sense of time
and place in the interest which we first
contemplated this painting. We will
not stop to analize onr feelings—per
haps we could not do so. We cannot
stand even before a picture of still life
without a sensation of. pleasure but
ohTto" atondTwitness to the"gloVy"of in-chief, to whom Mr. C. had carried
the human soul in such a conception
Guido—who of all men know best
the art of lifting men quite out of earth,
and of showering on their face and
from expression which is not of this
world—seems to have painted this to
supply the Christian's most crowning
desire after a pictured image of that
face which was more marred than that
of man—that form bent under the bur
den of a world's attonement in a bend
more glorious than the bend of theimpressed
rainbow—those arms which were in
stinct and vibrating with everlasting
love—those long curling locks which
seem to twine lovingly around the
thorns which pierced his pale majestic
brow. As we contemplated this
achievement of genius, which deline
ates agony unutterable, without disfig
uring it by a line of unbecoming harsh
ness, and felt that union of sublimity,
tenderness, and affliction in the counte
nance, marred with suffering, we could
not but recall that memorable passage,
I have trodden the wine press alone
if I be lifted up, I will draw all men
A turn around the room, and we
may contemplate one of the most ex
quisite pieces of sculpture, a recum
bent figure in marble of St. Cecila,
copied from the original, which repre
sents her in her grave-clothes, in theplace
attitude in which she was found, A.D.
Nothing can be more beautiful than
the perfect abandon of this figure—
the dying languor, the desolate help
lessness, the feminine grace of thedeur
grave-clad limbs. The mysterious
sweetness of happy death is evident in
their composure "for eternity." She
looks as if but just dead, and before
the muscles became rigid, with her
face turned down, she lies in death as
natural as the human bodv itself would

paintings is an exquisite
lie. Its beautiful repose reclining, as
it does, upon a slab quite alone in thegives
drawing-room, is exceedingly touching,
and the contrast of life and death in
the living, moving forms around, and
this departed figure struck us as full of suppose it wan a feeling of this kind
thought The lice figures wore vul

of this graceful vi ion. We longed to
surround it with a dim solitude. The
rarest perfection of design and execu

In the back drawing* fooftt is a pot
trait of Beatrice Cenci," copied from
the original in the Barberin Palace.—
The original was taken by Guido"
in her cell the night before her execu
tion. Her head is bound in folds of
white drapery, and her face the very
incarnation of sentiment and loveliness.
There is no paroxysm of grief disturbs
the perfect contour of the straight
clear outline—nooverwhelming anguish
at her inevitable destiny mars the
curved mouth or disturbs the soft oval
of the colorless chf ek. The undalent
linen is bound in a knot of classic se
around the statuesque head, and
her eyes have not yet taken their calm,
clear look from my imagination—
They haunt mestill, those calm, pure, holy
Their piercing sweetness wanders thro' mythe
The soul of music that within them lies
Comes o'er my soul in soft and
Life, spirit life, immortal and divine.
Is there and yet how dark a death was
Was it not the contemplation of death
as a deliverer which gave to her face
its spiritual expression
The statue parlor contains a noble
original" life-size statue of Mercury,
purchased from the Masini family, one
of the oldest in Rome and an exquis
ite statue of Venus do Medici, obtained
from the Princess Lettia Bonaparte,
daughter of Lucien, lo which we shall
refer at another time besides many
other beautiful works of art.

a stately velvet chair made lor a
cardinal to sit in, and a beautiful porce
breakfast serviee of Napoleon Bo
naparte's, used in some of his cam

upon the saucers. This was presented
by Napoleon's nephew, the Prince of
Canino, son of Lucien Bonaparte, to
Lewis Cass, jr., as a testimonial of
regard for services rendered to him
during the troubles at Rome. The
letter of the Prince accompanies the
case. There is also among this collec
tion a medallion likeness of Nero—
antique—which was dug up at Ostia
also of S Peter and S Paul. These
last, together with along marble slab
or antique table-top, once belonged to
the church of S Peter, in Montorio.
This church was built by Constantine,
over the spot where Peter was cruci
fied. It was once repaired by Ferdi

by Raphael—so still, so earnest so
absorbed in its expression of holy love,
that it realizes our deepest conception
of the character. What is most re
markable is, that all this expression is
given to a countenance with nearly
closed eyes, for the eyelids fall so
heavily, we should rather say softly,
over them. There is also a painting
by Raphael of S Cecilia. We were
with the superior character
of repose by which these are distin
guished from the portraits of the pres
ent day. We scarcely ever see a trace
of this quiet yet stately sweetness in
the expression of modern portraits—
they all look so eager, so restless. W
wonder if this is owing to the feverish
excitement of the times in which we
live, for we should suppose that the
world had never been in such a hurry

In the statue parlor there is a su-
erb bust of Fiarinaccio, the judixe in
judicial robes, who passed sentence
on Beatrice Cenci. It was obtained
from the Countess Guilinna Zanipe, the
last representative of the Cenci family.
The government gave her permission
for its exportation very reluctantly,
and offered Mr. Cass 91,000 for it todrink
it in the Vatican. It is a fine

mild and earnest, with a high intellec

Artificial Frodacttea of BsttV
This is the subject of perhaps the
ntost curious paper presented to the
French Acadeiuy of Sciences for many
months past The reparatory action
of the periosteum (or membrane direct
ly investing the bones) in reproducing
the osseous substance when partially
lost or destroyed either by accident or
disease, is a well-know fact, ami vari
ous surgical operations are founded
upon it but Doctor Ollier's expert*
inents, presented to the Academy at
its last sitting, throw quite anew light
on the subject These experiments,
performed upon rabbits, are divided
into three series: 1. Long slips of pe
riosteum were detached from the tibia
throughout their length, one of their
extremities only being left adherent to
bone. These slips were then rolled
around the muscles of the leg in vari
ous ways, and in the course of time
was produced in Various shapes,
as, for example, a spiral, an 8, &c! 2.
In the second series of experiments the
slips of periosteum were entirely de
tached from the bone three or four
days after the opperation, and, not
withstanding this separation from its
primative source of life, the periosteum*
still continued to produce bone. 9. In
the third series the periosteum was
entirely detached from the bone at the
outset, and immediately transplanted
to some other region, under the skin
of the shoulder or of the back, for ex
ample still the periosteum produced
bone. An advanced age, it appears,
diminishes this property of the perios
teum, but does not completely destroy
it The osseous tissue thus obtained
is real bone, similar to that of the rest
of the body. After a certain time a
cavity is formed within, containing
marrow, which derives nourishment
for three or four issues. In short,
these curious experiments show that
bone may be obtained wherever the
periosteum can be introduced and
that a membrane may preserve its
properties notwithstanding its removal
and transplantation. The cure and
treatment of fractures'may be cons'.d
erably improved by these unexpected
facts.— OalignanVs Messenger.

Mr. Whitt, member of the Royal
College of Surgeons, has published a
pamphlet in which he states that bi
carbonate of ammonia is a specific for
the cure of scarlet fever and measles.'
He cites Dr. Pearl, of Liverpool, and
other practitioners, who have never
lost a case out of hundreds since adopt

bicarbonate of ammonia are dissolved
in five ounces of water, and two table
spoonfuls of the solution given every
two, three, or tour hours, according t»
the urgency of the symptoms. No acid
must be taken, but only water,
or toast and water. The system is to
be moved if necessary. *Tlie room
