LE TRISTE SOUVENIR.
Sweet May! wo sow tliy blooms depart
Willi Dullness all loo deep tor tears:
'Twos like the spr ng lime ol the heart
That merges, into laler years,
Less lull of happiness than when
Through youth's glad scenes we wandered then.
Ah! iheii imr smiles were bright as thine,
Our joyance was as young and rare;
Wu loved lo pluek thy (lowers, and tw me
Them round our brows uud in our hair
Those flowers so heautilul, that bring
The semblance ol perennial spring.
Through balmy vales we waddered then,
That seemi d as pure cs I dtii-bowers;
The uir was redolent; and when
The wild-birds sung uway the hours,
Our youth and thou went hiind in hand
As through .1 l:i i r and Iniry land.
But now thy splendors all are gone,
And lime bus stolen our youlh away;
We wander Utterly alone,
While chilling winds arounil us play,
Whose dreary influences impart
Something of coldness to the heart.
Thy flowers are scattered by the breeze.
All chilled and blighted by the Irost:
We gaze upon the leafless I rocs.
As if in search of something lost.
Hut all in vuin we search around
'or that which can no more be found.
We seem to see youlh disappear;
We ask at lost some parting words;
We listen-. -hut we only hear
The farewell music of the birds,
Tor they, is thou and youth's young prime.
Have gone to seek some samtner clime.
Like stany skies beclouded oer,
Like visions lost from memory,
Like flowers that lode to bloom no more.
' Like treasures sunken iu the oca,
So lu.ie the days of youth from view,
To wear no tnoie their early hue.
,.. But thou, fair month! maystcome again
To greet us with thy warm embrace,
A nd oh. thou shall not set k in vain
To End a genial dwelling-placet
We fain would Welcome thee, sweet May'

MY COUSIN FROM THE COUNTRY.
BY MRS. M. A. DENNISON.
A tall Yankee told the story; a 111. 111, bony
hard leaturej,yel upon whoi-e front the Al
mighty had stamped ge::ius in characters un
mistakable. Said he, v hen I was a young man I wa3
awkward, us I believe ull young men are, whose
stnture outruns their years. I uud grown so
fast that people where I lived looked up to j
me and i of course, as was natural, looked 1
down on them; but I was not proud, not. at I
11. I had a cousin then, a singularly hand
some man, whose face to me was always a
delightful study. He was not ol such un
gainly height us myself, but his hair was j
brnwn and curling, his cheeks tinged with
red, his ryes glowing uud sparkling, his man- j
ncr commanding, uud above all he wits u
minister. Now in those days, ministers were
very n-ur.y made idols of, und consequently
were oiten spoiled. My cousin, I always
thought had more oride than was good for
him. but he was so attentive whenever he
came out into the country to pay us a long
vi.-H (for he invariably did every summer) so
pleasant and affable to us all; that we over
looked his little peculiarities.
1 temember how we used lo watch bin "l
meal tints, and what a general jingling there
was whenever he took his spoon out of the
teacup into his saucer, for we were a very
imitative family, and cousin Dennis waa our
beau ideal oi politeness.
One winter we had unusually good luck,&
father huppening to have a surplus of money
on baud, told me that if 1 had u notion to
see the world; I might go to the neighboring
city, and stop till spring. You may be sure 1
was talier than ever; for although I was
nearly twenty-one, 1 had never been in the
city to stop over a day at the most, and now
the idea ol spending 1 winter there was al
most overwhelming. Every night I inadj a
programme of tuy expected tour where 1
should go this night, und where next week
above all, I thought how pleusuni it would bi
to a:iare cousin Dennis' hospitality, for hi
hud so often urged me to come ai d pass so1I1(
time with h in, that 1 hud no doubt but In
delight at seeing me would be equal to nitv
at meeting hiin. A lew week., moie.und tb
busy lingers ol my mother and sister ha
prepared my wardrobe, und the trunk wa
brought down from the garret nnrl stuffed till
its brass studded frame Would hold no nvirc.
Probably no experienced stranger, starling
for Boropti ever took half the number of
'wearables'' that I, in my simplicity rleinod
by far too limited. But the great gala diy
name, und with its depirture, I left my home
for the wilderness of New York.
It ii'ns late when I arrived at my cousin's
handsome brii k dwelling, with some little
land adjoining he had inherited. I had nev
er seen it before, and lo mo it was as beauti
ful as a palace. An old Quaker aunt kepi
house for hint and by her I was welcomed t
with a cold formality I did not undersland; 1
vet wearied as I was, I did not give much '
thought about the subject, but ate my supper
in silence, cheered by the news that my .
cousin had gone to officiate at a wedding, and I
might not be home until eleven.
Already it was nearing ten, and I unused '
to such late hours, begged to be shown to a
bed-room. I shall n. ver forget how i:y cold f
the room was to which I was attached. Large r
and cheerless filled with sombre lurniture. it )
was so different from my sr ug little chatrber !
at home, where the sun luid all day, & where! I
wa'er seldom froze! The sheets as I touched t
them seemed like ice; I had not dared to ap- a
proach my feet to the polished stove hearth
below stairs, and I suffered exceedingly. j
However, I soon forgot all want of comfort tl
in dreBtns, in which the old frame house and tl
a roaring lire were the chief objects of in- n
In the morning, and bitter cold it was, I a
arose ut my ttstml hour, dreised myself and
hurried from my chamber. I found my way c
to the hull. On the rack in the corner laid
an ample cloth cloak, which 1 supposed my p
cousin must have thrown off in u litiriy.
Surprised at the unusual stillness, I tried the j
door, which I made egress the preceedijgl t,
night. It waa locked fast. Successive iy l'p
tried every door within my range; alas! there j,
was neither ingress nor omlet, for the front I
entrance was ulso fastened in such slmanner n
Hint it U tied ull my endeavors to move the o
lock. It seems that tny Cousin's house keep- ,
er was one of the old fashioned sort, nnd ncv
er retired without fastening up every thing t
in tie house; I question eomewhat whether ,."
she did 11 it lock her bed curtains. (
Three mortal hours did I stay shivering in ty
my room oh that eventful morning, solacing I
myself with doleful glances at the brick walls t
ol a distillery, and running over the pages
of a Gre k Lexicon, which ajaawedty wus nil - rr
Greek to nie and nothing else. u
At length, O welcome sound! the hell rang w
and I, blue ivith cold, descended to the break- j
last room. There 1 met tny cousin, and for
1 he first time. do understand such thing h
better now. ((
My cousin tried his best to he agreeable,,,
but I saw that disappointment 'stood out all
over his actions, particularly when I inen-jp
tio'ied that I bad C'ltno for a long visit. But j ,
I soon got over the unpleasant feeling con-; .,
sequent on ibis discovery, and determined to I (
bravo it out. Had he nut stopped summer
after summer on my father's larinl Did we L,
nut every six months send him some lavor in
the shape 01 the beat winter greenings, 111s- .
setts or baldwlnsl ho I put myself on my ,
dignity, aw kwnrd though it was, uud nppear-
ed as if I observed nothing unpleasant,
Wherever I went, 1 could see lhat my new j
relative was ashamed of his tall cousin.
Now I knew in my soul that I was good Ion,,
something I had the consciousness of ln j
tellect, no way in'erior to his own. At home r.
I wus lainous as a Yankee story teller, but
having a fear of the minister's superior at
taininents alwuys before my eyes 1 had never g
allowed him lo see what I could do This
false timidity wus, however, slowly weuring .
away. I began to feel anxious to resent my j
cousin's oHiciousness, nnd I d.dly grew strong- v
er in my determination to d !o I noticed
his deportment when he little thought of it,
his quick step uhea so us to seem alone t
when he met some fusliionuble lady; his .
careful avoidance ol ull mention of tuy name j
tu others; und I thought to myself, 'one day ,
1' 1 teuch you a lesson, young man, if you ure
a minister.' ,
How it wos I know not, hut by some mis- j
management, I suppose, invitations were sent
us to a large dinner j. .ity, r.v :. in honor o! j
1 soma dialinguished divine, then creating quite f
an excitement in the city. My relative look- (
ed astonished when he found that I hud re
'1 solved to go, and tried to intimidate me by
hinting at the fushiunabhi character of the
I entertainment. At last, linding me resolute,
! he said, with a bland smile:
1 You had better let me introduce you as 'my
' cousin from the country,' and us you uro not
1 initiated into the p.n und mysteries of fashion
il U'lli help you wonderfully; they will sup
! pose you iguoran' of etiquette, and therefore
I excuse your greenness.
'Thank you for nothing,' thought I and
I went to the party. There is no mistake
' about it, I was a first abushed iu the com
pany of so much dignity und beauly; I trem
bled for myself. My cousin sat opposite to
nie, and by his side u lovely git I robed ill blue
who looked 10 ino the nearest to uu angel
thai is possible to imagine. 1 soon saw tout
my cousin's heurt had been traveling 111 thut
direction; he was devoted to her, although he
kopt un eye on poor me, to see that 'his cou
sin from the Country' did him no glaring dis
I I I heard him address her ns Miss Harriet,
s ; and once in tilling her glass from the crysul
pitcher near jV, he overrun it, and the fluid
mingled wan meat und yruvy on the yaung
j lady's plute.
1 Aha! thought I, glancing at him slyly,
'cousin Iroin the countiy!'
Presently I noticed another mishap. A re
verend and absent mi qdajk looking geiilieman
at u.y righ, undertook ttSjapve a chicken.
By some awkwardness, a small bone flee,'
from the edge of his knife, and slap it went
against the DOM of a lady opposite, spatter
ing her face with the gravy. The lady turn
ed red the gentleman npoloized, the com
pany seemed more than usunlly serious, as'
rompanv always does when it restrains Itself
from a heany laugh, and I looked straight ut
my friend across the table, saying, ns plain!
ss eyes could say i'. 'alial cousin from thcj
And that wan not the end of the chipter, !
ror my cousin, in rrttcmptlng to cut butter, j
Which, SB It WRS an UnUfttaity warm winter
lay, hati ire upon it, unfortunately knocked
ihe froteh element oh the tabic; and of all ;
:ho efforts I ever saw put forth to catcS a

f securing that ice was the most ridiculous.
First he laid siege with knife eV. fork.but it
lapced about like, ice oewilched; polka, waltz

Cft followed afterjfcO, with what gusto could J
havfl shouted at Hint moment, 'cousin from ' (

nd contented myself with an inward chuckle. '
Hut by-and bye things went on more',

1 on with my story. I worked like magic I
'ever before had I spoken before 311 h nn f

ents, ih.it my cousin was apologising for v

nderstand it when at the conclusion a roar s

id' again the mirth brohe forth, audi was e

I was not surprised at that, but I was sur- h

ii! sat by ne and seemed to listen with in- I

ibles were turned, and I even Delieve he 1
'us jealous of his 'cousin from the country.' r
Imitations poured In upon me after that I

Miss Harriet Newland, the young lady I 1
avo mentlof ed before, hud been for two sea-
ons the regular belle. She wus not wealthy 1
ut the heir expectant of good property. She 1
vas a girl of decided talent, and no doubt j
tended to marry well. My cousin, I saw, i J
as most assiduously puying his uddreases to i :
ler. He co.ihded occasionally in me, and ul-
vays spoke of her with trunsport. At length ! 1
hings began to change. He grew solemn 1
ml moody, and seldom mentioned her name. ' ,
saw her frequentiyi und had I been vain,1
he light that sparkled in her eyes, the deep!
low of her beautiful cheek would hate led
ne to suspect my presence culled forth the
irigh sparkle and the modest blush.
I like the omnibus for one reason. It gives
lot opportunities lor the s'.u ly of human
lattire. One day I determined on taking the

lordingly hailed the first 'buss,' a gaudy con-
:eru, and we commenced our ahrv jonrnoy. '
What n mul'itudo were out that duy! White '
tats and blue hati, with blue eyes beneath

between intervening vehicles, a rioh variety

Suddenly, without a mon.eiil's warning,
down came the rain, an I such a rain! Such
scattering to und fro! such dodging into shop
doors and under the shades! such scampering
for omuibussee! In less time than I can
say it, our vehicle was apparently lull.
'Drive on,' said a gruff voice, when n prlly
white bonnet appeared, and u beautiful lace
looked appesllngly In, I sprang from my

mad'1 'ier way towards me between u mul

her fair sisterhood, found a tolerable place at

The visit of Qti?en Victoria 'o Paris was
little more than a conq.jen.r'.s psg,ent, in
which the acted the part of a distinguished
captlVt, which could not be endured by iter
for a moment, if a single drop of Uoad'icea's '
blood remained in the veins of modern royal-'
ty. Shu was received wi'h a magnificence !
which threw her efforts ut dup'HV on Ihe or
csalon of Napoleon' vi.-it lo London in the
shade, ana showed, as Sterne says, that "they
do these things better in France;" but the J
cheers with which the Emperor was greeted
in London were not bestowed upon the!
Queen iu Paris, and she passed onward to
St. Cloud, a spectac.e to be gazed at, and
stOI a guest to be honored.
Some years ago this same Victoria tp
fused to permit a distinguished English s'c-j
tress to appear at the private theatricals in
Windsor Palace, because her character was
not sans reproche, and yet she was compel'
led to accept the companionship during her!
ten days soj .urn in Par s of ths Emperor's

Ninon tj'finctos, the most brilliant and brnzen
Courtessn ol the present day. M itllUde is
Jtvorced from her husband uu account ol her
Innumerable IrtflJslltifs, and is living In open
adultery with a "last attache of the Court."!
In the same carriage with her the prudish
Victoria rode to tlu Grand Opera and beheld
ibert somewhat noted for susceptibility
exposed to ail her witchery and fascination-!!
thile beside her sat her superior and her
luster the "madman ol Boulogne." who1
vas uiih of her special constubles in '4t!!
rVho says tiiat truth is not stranger than tjc

lot a greater romance maker than Walter
Scott or Alexander Dumas.'
"I noticed," says a c jrrespondent of the
uond 111 BrtU, "that while the E nper ir con
ured ,;,,, a.e Q.ireu in tr.e K yul cox at'
he Opera, a sinister smile. Etafof triumph
ind half of sarcasm, parted his lips occa-:

Laughter . Without it our faces would

on them, would have made the face ul the

smiling upon us. Yes; smiles are its first
talk with the world, smiles the fiVsl answer
that it understands. And then, as wurlddy
wisdom comes up in the little thing, it crows,
1 buckles, it grins, und shakes in its nurse's
urms, or in Waggish humor, playing bo-peep
with the breast, it reveals its high destiny,
declares to him with ears to '-ear the hi' edum

as gingerly and acutely as they will; they
must find confusion in laughter. Min may

SKETCH OF MARTIN LUTHER.
BY THOMAS CARLYLE.
A roifse, ragged, plebian face it was, with
grent crags of cheek bones a large amount
'f wild, passionate energy and appetite! But
in his dark eyes were floods bf Borrow; and
deepest melancholy, Bwectness snd myeiery
were all there. Often did they scum to meet
in Luther the very opposite poles in mse's
eharsctef He, lor exsmple, of whom Rioh
ter had said lhat his words were half battles;
he, wfo n be first began to preach suffered un
h ard-o! sgony. "O Dr. Snupilz, Dr. Slau
pi'z," said he lo the Vicsr. GenerM of his lor
de. "I csnflot dolt." Dr Staupitx. a wise
and considerate mai , said upon this, "Well,
s;r Martin, if you mutt die, yuu must but
remember that they need good heads up yon
dcr, too. To preach, man preach and then
1 ' or dio, 'as it i.:pp'i;is." Ha Luther
preachd and lived, snd he becsme.indecd, one
great whirldwlnd of energy, to work without
resting in this vror d; snd alas; acfore he died,
he wrote very msny hooks books in which
the true nan was for in th midst of sll ihey
denounced and cursed, what touches of ten

ample. We sf e in 0 little bird, having a
llfhted St sunset on the bough of a tree that
grew in Luther's garden. Luther looki.d up at
it & said: "That little bird, how it cowers
Jo.vn its wings, sleeps there so still dr. fearless
Ihough over it are the infinite starrv spaces,
ind the great blue depths of Immen'sitv! Yet
t fears net it is at home. The God that
nade it too is there!" The iame gentle
pirit ol lyrical admiration is in other passages
il this book. Coming home fi m Leipsic in
he autr.mn season, he breaks for'gh into living
von ler at the iblds ol corn. "How it stands
here," he says, "erect on its beautiful taper
item and bending its beautilul golden head
vith bread in il the bread of man sent to
tint yet another year!" Such thoughts as
.here areas windows though which we gse
nto the interior of the serene depths of Mar
in Luther's soul, and see visible scross the
:empe-,ts aud clouds, a whole heaven of light
ind love. He might have painted, he might
iave sung could have been beautilul like
Raph-tel.great like Michael Angelo.
Sow- t;me ago Col. Spioner printed a pa
per at Sag Harbor, and was much encour
aged by a liberal merchant, who advertised
liiswar-:s in two long columns, specifying
every item of wet or d y goods, shovels,
mouse-traps, stationery, &c. While this
was working m igicsl'y among the villagers,
a rival merchant called in oie day, and ask
