[From the December Number of the Atlantic
Monthly.] A SUN-DAY HYMN.
BY OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES.
Lord of all being! throned afar,
Thy glory flames from hub did star;
1 'enter and soul of every sphere,
Tet to euch loving heart bow near !
Sun of our life, llion wakening ray
Sheds on oar patb the glow of dux;
Star of our hope, thy softened light
Cheers the long watches of the night.
Our midnight Is thr smile withdrawn;
Hr noontide l thy gracious dawn;
Our rainbow arch thy mercy's sin;
All, tare the clouds of sin, are thine I
Lord of all life, below, above,
Whins light U Until, whose warmth la lore,
Before thy ever-blazing throne
We tut It no luster of our own.
Grant n thy truth to make ill free.
And kindling hearts that bnm for tliee,
Till all thy living altars claim
Clno holy light, one heavenly rlatne !
The Talisman of Charlemagne.
la looking over that genorul repertory
of all kinds of literary odds and ends,
"Xotos and Queries," we happened upon
the following curious bit of information,
under the date of December 211 1849:
"Many years back. Prince Louis Napo
leon was said to be in possession of the
talisman of Charlemagne, a small nut in
gold filigree envelopment, found round
the neck of Charlemagne, on the opening
of his tomb, and given by the town ol
Aixe-la-Lhapelle to isonaparte, and by
him to his favorite Hortoase, Queon of
Holland, at whose death it descended to
her son, now president of the French
The legend of the talisman relates that
certain magic in the train ot the embass
adors, sent by the magnificent Caliph
liaroun-al-Kaschid to the Emperor of the
West, attached a powerful charm to the
jowel in question, in virtue of which
Charlemagne entertained an extraordin
ary tuleetion for the person or thing in
possession of the jewel. His consort,
iistrada, and his Chancellor, the Arch
bishop of Mainz, successively experienced
the eiiioacy of the charm, and by it capti
vated tho reverence and love of the great
Emperor. Hut the Chancellor got scru
pulous about possessing a heathen amulet,
and threw the talismanio jewel into a
lake in the neighborhood of .Mainz. The
regard of Charlemagne was immediately
diverted from men to the country sur
rounding the lake, lie built a magnifi
cent palace near the charmed waters, in
Avhioh he passed a portion of his latter
days, and where, too, he died.
J'lie throes of death were long and vio
lent; the imperial-minded spirit seemed
loath to part from the stalwart frame of
the great Charles. The Chancellor was
called to the bed-side of the dying mon
arch, and soon guessed the reason of the
terrible agony, lie caused the lake to be
drugged; the talisman was found and re
stored to the Emperor, and then his soul
departed in peace.- Charlemagne's grave
was opened by Otho III, in 997, the talis
man was taken from the corpse and given
to the town corporated of Aixe-la-Chapclle.
After the lapse of ages, it came into the
possession of the Bonapartes, the
founders of an imperial dynasty which
has alredy played as great a figure in the
world's history as that of the first Emperor
of the West.
So much for the legand. The Illustrated
Lcmdun News, of March 8, 1845, con
tains a representation of the talisman and
the following disoription: "This curious
object of virtue is described in the Parisian
journals as 'la plus belle relique de 1'
.Europe,' and it has certainly created con
siderable interest in the archaeological
find religious circles of the continent.
The talisman is of fine gold, of round
form, as our illustration shows, set with
.gems, and in the centre are two rough
sapphires, and a portion of the Holy Cross.
Jt is at jiresont the property of Prince
This was written in 1845, when, if we
mistake not, the nephew of his uncle was
a prisoner in the fortress of Ham, when
few could have conjectured the revolutions
of ' IS and '4'J, and the coup d' etat of '52.
it lias been said, and not without reason,
that the first Napoleon was a fatalist; and
if the thousand and one anecdotes con
cerning the third Nopoleon, now flying
round the world on the wings of rumor,
be true, we would be inclined to class
him in the same category. Whether he
has now the talisman of Charlemagne,
and puts faith in it, are facts of which we
have no certaintv, and for which we care
Thk Origin ok Familiar Phrasks.
The term "masterly inactivity" originated
with ir James Mackintosh. "God tem
pers tho wind to the shorn lamp" which
everybody, who did not suppose it was in
the Jiible, credited to Stern, was Btolenby
him from George Herbert, who transJated
it from the French of Henry Estienne.
"Tho oup that cheers but not'inebriates"
was "conveyed" by Cowper from Bishop
Berkeley, in his "Siris". Wordsworth's
"The child is father of the man," is traced
from him to Milton, and from Milton to
Sir Thomas Moore. "Like angels' visits,
few and far between." is tlie offspring of
"Hook" it is not Thomas Campbell's
original thought Old John Norris (1658)
used it, and after him Robert Blair, as
late as 174(5. "There's a glide time com
ing" in Scott's phrase, in "Rob Roy," and
the almighty dollar - is Washington lr
ving's happy hit
I'xur.vtefcl. Mr. Blair tells a story of
an interview had during the late canvass,
with a prominent member of his party,
from whom he solicited active efforts in
his own behalf, "You must make your
oll'icial record dear before 1 can support
i in response
said lilair, "when
X7,ti ivnnfnil main BimnMiivnn fi
I did'nt stop to ask whether you had
robbed the bity of 100,000 in that
sale or not!" ,
Just iiis Luck. There are people in
the world who are continually speaking
of their ill-luck. One of these discon
tented beings was passing through our
streets the other day, Something glis
tened on the side-walk, and he stopped to
pick it up. "Bang it," he exclaimed, in a
tone of petulent disappointment "if any
body else had found it, it would have been
a quarter dollar."
Ko Reason to Febl ho Grand. At
Lynn, the other day, a Sunday school
teacher asked a little girl who the first
man was. Hhe answered that she did
not know. The question, was put to the
next an Irish child, who answered, "Adam,
sir," with apparent satisfaction. "La,"
said the first scholar, "you needn't feel
so grand about it; he wasn't an Irishman.
A Well-Bred Baboon Family.
The following curious account of
baboon family is translated from a recent
French work, by 11. jsoitard, tor uood
rioh's "Illustrated Natural History:"
"There have been and still are in the
managerieof the Garden of Plants, Paris,
a number ofbaboons, and four years ago
a female, who had a voune one, turmshed
one of the most amusing and singular
speotaoles i ever witnessed, she was
plaoed with it in a cage, near the one she
formerly ocoupied with several other
animals of the same specie. The infant
baboon was hideously ugly, but she lav
ished upon it the most tender caresses.
When it was eight days old, the door of
communication was opened, and nermaie
antAnAil 'I1 k mntliaw aaalatl in f ll n
middle of the cage, held the young heir
in her arms, precisely ns a nurse would
do under similar circumstances. The
father approaohed and embraced his mate
with French gallantry upon each side of
the face; he then kissed the little one, and
sat down opposite the mother, so that
their knees touched each other. They
then both began to move their lips with
rapidity, taken the young one from each
others arm as it they were having a
most animated conversation concerning
"The door was again opened, and the
baboon friends entered, one after another,
eaoh embraoing the mother, who, however
would not allow them to touch the young
one. Thev seated themselves in a circle
and moved their lips, as if felicitating tho
happy couple on the arrival of the son
and hoir, and parhaps finding in it a mar
velous resemblance to either the father or
mother. The scene was very much like
that which often takes place in the human
family on similar occasions, except that
we suspect the felicitations were more
heartfelt and genuine on the part of the
brutes then on that of their more favored
"All the baboons wished to caress the
young one; but no sooner did one of them
pat out his hand than a good slap from
the mother warned him of his indis
cretion. Those who were -placed behind
her, stretched their hand out slyly, slid it
under her arms, and suoceeded, some
times, to their great joy, in touching the
little one without the mother precoiving it,
particularly when she was engaged in
conversation. But a smart correction
soon taught them that their indescretion
was observed, and they quickly retreated.
It was evident that the monkey mother,
thoroughly acquainted with the require
ments of her position, know perfectly
well how to divide her attention between
her guests and her infant charge.
Tub Art of Going to Si.bkp. No doubt
there are many of our readers who un
derstand this delightful art to perfection;
but there are certain conditions of animal
economy, even in a state of health, when
tired nature's sweet restorer rofuses to
close our lids, and seems pertinaciously to
fly from us, though wooed ever so warmlv.
One writer recommends a "rolling of the
eye balls." Horrid idea! The most
natural and facile method is to place the
head in a comfortable position, and then,
taking a full inspiration, breathe as much
as possible through the nostrils. The
attention must now be fixed upon the fact
of breathing. The patient mustimagino
that he sees tho breath passing from his
nostril; and the very moment he brings
his mind to concieve this, apart from all
other ideas, consciousness and memory
depart, and he sleeps. The method is
strange, but simple, and the experiment
will prove its truth.
An Oscclatory Paragraph. Kissing
is something that roquires very delicate
treatment, either as a theory or a practice,
and though we like not this paragraph)
we republish it for the subject's sake:
We hardly dare attempt to toll vou the
proper way of kissing, whether on tho
lips or forehead. Hardly any two ladies
kiss aime; ineir lavors in this line being
of as many varieties as their faces. We
think a kiss on the forehead may do very
weu ior a mere suitor, in the early stages
ot nis attentions, i he cheek answers
very well between relatives. But the
throne of a kiss of love is evideutly the
lips. Wedded bliss can not be truly per
fected without the meeting of tho lips in
a fervent and protracted pressure, in all
tho rosy warmth and pouting velvetness of
youth and beauty.
Engaging Manners. There are a
thousand pretty, engaging litte ways,
which every person may put on, without
running the risk of being deemed either
affected or foppish. The sweet smile, the
quiet, cordial bow, the earnest movement
in addressing a friend, or more especially
a stranger, whom one may recommend to
our good regards, the inquiring glance,
thegraceful attention, which is captivating
when united with self-posession thefe
Ml . 1 , 1 i
wui insure us me gooa regards ol even a
churl. Above all, there is a certain
softness of manner which should be cul
tivated, and which, in either man or
woman, adds a charm that always
compensates for lack of beauty.
Geographical Literalism. "Annette,
my dear, what country is opposite to us
on the globe?"
"Don't know, sir."
"Well, well," said the perplexed
teacher, "if I were to bore a hole through
the earth, and you were to go in this end,
where would you come out? '
"Out of the hole, sir," replied the pupil.
"Candid as a Child", A fashionable
visitor thus addressed a little girl:
"How do you do, my little dear?"
"Very well, I thank you," she replied.
"The visitor then added, "Now, my
dear, you must ask how I do,"
The child honestly replied, "1 don't
want to know."
