THE ABSENT ONE AT CHURCH.
At church once mon, Toward bar Mat
I tarn m; era la tear:
No need tbli flutter of the heart
Be oalm-she Is not here.
Oh, blank despair I How can I pray ?
The virgin doe not come.
To take thy poor petition np,
And bear it to in tbrone.
I hear the preacher read and pray,
I hear the ohoir sing:
Mr worahip if the hand that eweepi
The harp without a airing.
No priestess here before the sarins,
I bear my gift away,
For on the altar of mr heart,
No Incenie barni to-day.
Fate of the Mysterious Beauty.
To portray upon ivory the features
whioh will probably grow blaok in tho
dust lone before even his fragile tints
have faded to give to those who are
parting with the one nearest and dearest
to their hearts, some shadow of their
visible presenoe this in the task of the
Painter. ,
Many have been the' glad, and many
the sorrowful occasions upon whioh my
penoil has been summoned; one or two of
the soenes it is my purpose to lay before
the reader, in oolors not bright, perhaps,
but true.
Years have passed sinoe one morning
in the early season, I was aroused from
my labors in my studio by the arrival of
a visitor. He was voungyand there was
in his air that whioh indicated the union
of high birth and mental superiority.
His manner was elegant and yet it was
not without a touoh of embarrassment.
I have called," said he, "in the hope
in the belief that it is possible for nn
artist to take a likeness from from mem
ory should there be a disliko to sit
ting."
t have been able to do so," replied
1, a littlo surprised at his marked con
fusion. "If you would do it for me, I should be
more grateful than you can imagine bui.
the circumstances are peculiar, and I sun
fearful you may.refuse; but," added ho,
and his eyes filling with tears proclaimed
his emotion "my happiness my only
chanoe of happiness is in your hands! I
am about to leave England for years, and
would wish to continue unknown to
you but there is a
lady one in whom my very existence h-
bound up we have been brought U
together, hut we must be separated. You
nhitll see her and if you will give me it
fiketoh, however slight "
For a moment he covered his face with
his hands. I promised a ready com
pliance with his wishes, if he would in
struct me how to proceed. It was ur
ranged that 1 was to go with him that
iiigfit to the opera that I should see the
nrbitress of his fate tho keeper of his
heart's treasure. "One glance at her
features," he said, "will be my best
excuse." It would have been impossible
for mo to hesitate long, for his passionnto
entreaties would have prevailed upon u
far loss sensitive nature than mine.
To the opera I went with him that
night; and in all the dazzling circle around,
there was not one whose beauty could for
a moment compare with that of the youu;
and exquisite face that I was to remember!
Who that had ever seen it could forget
it
My companion entered her box, and
tho change that came over her bright
chock told its own tale, whilst the aid of
cold politeness with which the lady of
stately and matronly appearance who was
by her side, greeted his approach, showed
that it was by stealth alone he could ever
hope to win even the dim imperfectly
pictured remembrance of-that glorious
face. , .
Once more 1 went to gaze upon it; and
with a throbbing heart I sketched her
matchless features. I had caught the smile
with which she welcomed him, and when
I placed it before my stranger guest, 1
thought that, in the folly of his young
love, he would have worshipped the hand
that gave consolation to his exile.
i Months passed by, when 1 received u
request from Lord R , that I would
paint a minature of his young "fiancee."
1 of course complied, and at the hour
appointed for the sitting, his lordship en
tered the room, a lady leaning on his arm;
the same, aye, the same fair creature
whom I had already sketched for another !
With oold and evident reluctance she
allowed him to lead her to a seat Beau
tiful as she still was, a shadow seemed to
have passed over her. Sorrow had been
in the depths of those blue eyes, and had
stolen away the lustre and the light that
were native to them; whilst, for the glad
ness of youth which I had seen in them
before, there was a settled expression ol
dispair. I read in that face a fearful
story ! ' '""'" "
.T&eTtext day 1 was informed that Lad;
j-touisa G was too unwell to resume
i her sitting. I heard, at the same time,
that it was "her father's will" that ishe
should become tho bride, of Lord It .
A short timo after, I saw their union
announced in the papers.
The next spring found me still sur
rounded 'by the impliuients of the art 1
love, when wie evening I received a hur
ried note fromQTfl.R , requesting
my immediate pYee5oe.at the house in
Street
I went, and iu a most agitated man
ner did he beg of me to take a likeness
of his beautiful his dying wife.
Shocked beyond expression, I accom
panied him to the drawing-room; aiid
there, extended on a couch, was laid the
wreck of the young girl I had seen but
one little year before, in all the "pride
and prodigality" of beauty!
The glorious eyes were sunk and dim;
the exquisite features sharpened by the
band of death; the dark hair thrown back
in the impatience of sickness! She
welcomed me with a faint smile but met
lior husband's anxious eye with an ex
pression which was not love.
I sat down to my sad task, and had
scarcely commenoed when a domestic
. brought in a card. The pale cheek or
Lady Rr flushed deeply, as she trcm
blindly exclaimed. "Let him coma in.".
"My love," interrupted Lord K ,
you arc not wen enough to see stran
: gen." -
"Strangers! We were brought op
together, whispered the dvine creature
The door flew opn, and the visitor en
tered. Iknew him at tho first dance
He walked hurriedly to tho sofa on which
' the lady sat, uioapable ol rising (tboug!
evidently anxious) to receive luui. Jin

"iv 1 Idly pressed a pale, thin, OOld band t')
liii hps hers marmnred some one word
that might be his name, but it was
scarcely audible. The hand grew colder
in his fevered pressure. Yes, even before
Lord R could interpose, or proffer
assistance she, with one long,, intense
look npon features familiar to ner from
childhood, and imaged probably in her
marriage-dreams, had fallen baok, the
loveliest ruin ever eve beheld.
When I left that stately and splendid
mansion it had no mistress.
Deleterious Effect of a Quaker's Attire.
Cobbett, who lived for more than a year
at Hampstead, Long Island, used some
times to tell laughable stories at the
expense ot tno (Quakers, some ol wnoni
lived in his neighborhood there. The
author of "Reoolleotions of Mr. Jay," a
Bath olergyman, gives the following as
reoeived from Cobbett' s own lips :
I was acquainted with a well-disposed
young gentleman of large fortune, whose
only fault was the habit of swearing
and a habit that he often deolared he
would give half of his fortune to get rid
of. This desire came to the ears of a
Quaker, who thereupon had an interview
with the young gentleman, and said :
"I can cure thee of that bad habit"
"Whereupon the youth oaught hold of
the Quaker's hand, gave it a hearty shake,
saying :
"How oan yon perform this miraole?"
The reply was:
"I oan tell thee. I have heard that thou
art going this day to travel for a period
of six weeks. Thou art just my size;
nobody will know thee; thou shalt como
to my house, put on the cocked hat, the
ooat without buttons, the knee breeches,
and thou wilt find the arrangement of the
dress will have such an effect on thee,
when thou art going to talk, that it will
restrain thoe from swearing as thou per
haps knowest my good friend, that Qua
kers never swear..
The young man cheerfully assented to
the proposal, and accompanied tho
Quaker to his house, where, after chang
ing his clothes, he took his departure in
the garb of a Quaker, and went on his
way rejoicing. The period of the younj;
gentleman's tour elapsed, and the Quaker,
all anxiety, started to meet him Having
me? him he, said:
"How art thee?"
The reply was:
"VerywelL"
"Hast thou sworn so muoh with that
dress on thee?"
The young man, rubbing the sleeve of
his ooat replied:
"Certainly not, but I feel nd -d in
clination to lie?"
Deleterious Effect of a Quaker's Attire. A YANKEE'S OPINION OF THE STRANGER.
They had a play down to the theater the
other flight; there was a feller in it named
the Stranger; another feller named Mis
Haller. ihe Stranger nobody know d
and he know'd nobody, and Miss Haller
was in the same fix. Another feller
named the Count (he wasn't of muoh ac
count), he thought he'd bring these peo
ple together kinder neighborly like, and
the invited Mr, Stranger up to a stow tit
his house. The Stranger come, and Mr.
Count introduced him to Miss Haller.
He said "how dew ye dew." Miss Haller
kinder looked up, gin one squoak and
down she flopped. That's all that play
amounted to.
Hair Powder, Hair powder was freely
used in 1590. An other equally good
authority says, that powdered hair first
took its origin from some ballad singers,
at the Fair of St ttcrmain, whitening
their heads, in order to make themselves
lookjridiculous. A tax was 'subsequentl y
laid upon powdered hair, May 5 1795;
and full bottom wigs were first worn by the
judges in 1674. Long hair was pronibited
in Massachusetts, in the year 1649.
Present Facility op Travel. To
explain tho facilities of travel which mark
the present age, au Englishman said that
during the present year he had eaten a
sandwhieh on the top of the great pyra
mid of Egypt, drank the health of Queen
Viotoria on the verge of the crater ol
Vesuvius, and been rather Bharply scolded
by bis wife on the summit of Mount
Blanc! -
Tht iDbvil Orthographically Con
sidered. A clergyman recently re
marking on the appropriateness of this
cognomen to the person designated by it,
added: "The whole name is bad. If wo
take away the first letter, it is evil; take
away another letter, it is vile; take awa
the next letter, it is ill; and the last letter
itself has the sound of helL"
Singular Freak op Liohtnino A
flash of lightning penetrated the theater
at Venice during the performance. Six
hundred people were in the house at tho
time, several of whom were killed. It
put out the light, and melted a gold watch
case. Jewels in the ears of toe ladies
were split in twain, those of composition
were melted. This occurred in 1769.

A. Because Bne lots him have a "duck,
