Alone and ob, how wretched ! cot a throb
Of sympathy flows out frouriendly hearli
To cheer me in my woe. .In Tain I sob
And weep, for liie no living joy impart:
The elouda hang; darkly o'et my dreary way
And threaten to destroy the light of day.
The light T there fono light-all's darkness
now," . . ...
The struggling beams of Hope forever crush 'd,
And black despair sits on my aching brow,
Mourning the voice of conscience long since
O'er virtue lost affection's broken faith.
Woo Id that inch torments soon might end
' in death ! '
Beneath the dazzling grandeur of these halls
I start affrighted to redact npon
My present self, aa memory recalls
My parity, a few short years agone,
'Mid scenrs of quiet beauty gathering
The flowr's that out of love and friendship
spring. - '
Oh, innocence I Ob,' virtue I how your power
Forsakes the sou when evil ones steads in I
Oh, would to God I could recall the hour
Of purity; I'd scorn the thought of sin,
And hs'.e the wretch whose lowborn promis
f : stole ' .
The aweet, swret fl.rw'r of virtue from my
"'' ' soul. " 1 ' - ' . ' ""
In vain, in rain; time never can restore
The treasure lost, the pearl of greatest worth
That hpv'n bestows on woman 1 Evermore"
Devoid of hope, I wander o'er the earth
A thing accurs'd, to whom no place is given;
Oat off from love sod every hope of heaven.

To wrcim with each revolving day and nght

Miscellaneous Selections. An Up-Country Sunday Night.
Another Sunday the glad day of
the week has come to as made it
bright path in the sky, and passed over
to other lauds. It is almost midnight:
the breath of the week-dys, like the
chill of the early dawn, is not yet felt.
I shall sleep over into the hustling to
morrow with wet eyes, and a throbbing
bittioytul pulse. ... .. ..
Years ago it was our custom on this
night to gather here, or at Ramble ton
House, and sing our old Connecticut
nyms. My father always took the lead,
walking the room back and forth, and
extraordinary manner. The occasion
was one of solemnity, but mainly it was
a time tor praise ana thanksgiving,
' We formed at this time, a large cir
cle; and it required a strong and pow
erful leader, like my father, to keep us
in control. . Sometimes that office was
assigned to me ; but ia such cases, we
always failed in reaching ' that grand
movement which my father command
ed. ' , ' , -
After such failure, my father would
rise from his seat, look round npon us
wiin a smile, ana clash into the same
tune with great force and emphasis;
alter which he would seat himself, and
remark, in a modest way, that he had
sung that tune "more than forty years
ago, bad learned it, perhap, on Litch
field Hill; and the first time it was ever
suug was at such an ordination, and
was composed by such an one, ex
vresslv for that Dumose. . As to mvaelf.
I, as j
had been thoroughly trained by my
lather, years ago, tor hours at a time,
on rainy mornings, in the most difficult
tunes he. could select, each taking a
dinerent part, and my father dashing
through his with great spirit and pre
clusion, rausing occasionally, he would
explain to me how Mr. VY tb, or Mr.
-, or the celebrated Mr. I bble,
sang the same. At these times, we
sang, also, old anthems, now long since
laid away (except now and then that
we raise them, as it were, from the
dead) such as "I beheld, and lo!"
(from Hayden a Creation.) "The Heav
ens are telling ," dec.
On Sunday night meetings of which
was speaking, we usually sang "Den
mark", towards the . close; apd for the
last, a piece composed, or rather col
lected, by my father, from the closing
passage of four different anthems one
by Dr. Madam, from the "Lock Hos
pital," and the others by eminent com
posers. Ihe words were:
To our Almighty King
Wonder and praise wonder and praise
Prai-e biuj above, ye heavenly hosts.
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Thine all thrglory, man's the boundless
Sliinio . in immortal blooml
These passages being very fine, we
were all familiar with them, and sang
them with great power. They formed,
altogether, a very grand Doxology ;.
after singing which, it was my father's
custom, with some abruptness, to say,
"Good night, and immediately retire.
This was years ago. We meet now
those of us who are left but more
rarely. We sing the same songs ; but
we are not all here. Some have faded
away, and others are scattered about
the land. . bhall we ever meet again to
sing those old tunes ? x Not here. We
can have but an echo of those days now.
But we may meet. all meet in a bet
home. (May onr Father in Heaven
grant that this be so ) We may all
meet there and sing them again, with
the Hosts of Heaven with the "thou
sands and thousands, and ten times
thousands," who surround the throne
the Lamb, and cease not day nor
night, saying, "Holy, holv, holy, Lord
God Almighty, which was, and is, and
to come. A II gathered st one hearth
father, and mother, and sisters, and
brothers to walk in white robes to
sing there the song of the Redeemed
Glory'! Oh, my Father and my God,
will this be so? All all gathered in
that happy home ' Will it be so ? I
have been, to-night, in one of my sad
joyous moods; silent and bewilder
ed ; the images of old friends and old
times about me. It is not long since
my voice was strong and firm. ' It ia so
now ; but in this strange humor this
indomitable willfulness of the heart I
have no power over it I can but sit,
speechless, and look up with a , trem
bling hope to the kind Heaven which
'is over nlL ' ' -
. I w ai sitting, to-night, leaning back
in my chair, while T. rat by the hearth,
gazing silently upon the dying embers,
when my father came in, and without
speaking to us, b?gan walking slowly
across the room. Presently, he began
an old anthem, in a low tone, his voice
a very unusual thing trembling,
and at times almost failing him, while
he walked slowly back and forth. The
words, as well as I remember them,
were "Farewell,farewell,my friends, and
God grant that we may meet again,
where trouble shall cease and harnion y
abound." : As he finished singing, he
turned to roe and asked what old piece
it was. "Strange," he said,' "that I
should think of. it now. I do not re
member of singing it in more than forty
years. It must be one of the olrTpieees
we used to sing on Litchfield Hill;'
and again he repeated it, slowly, and as
if searching carefully tor the old tones
so long hurried "Farewell.farewelLmy
friends!" .... . . . ,
He retired soon after, but presently
returned, with a black leather-covered
book (Song of the temple,' 1819,) took
a seat by the table, by the side of my
wife, and opening the book . carefully,
turned to an old tune not at all familiar
to me, but of a soft and plaintive strain.
It was very simple in tone, but exceed
ingly difficult in .its construction. . My
father sang it through once by himself,
and then asked ns to sing it with him.
was in that foolish condition I have
mentioned my eyes troubled with
tears and could make no reply., I was,
in fact, pretending to sleep.. My father
looked at me s moment, over his glas
ses, but said no more, and began sing
ing again my wife joining with him.
These are i the words :- - .- : . t
'Tie finished, so the Savior cried, 1
i And meekly bowod his heid and dierl;
, 'Tis finished yes, the race is run, 1
The baltle'rfought the victory won.-'
They sang it again and again, with
the same words. My wife has a sweet
voice, and they both sang in low and
subdued tones; my fathernsing butlit
tile of hi usual gesticulation, only rais
ing and lowering his hands slowly, as in
prayer. Once, at the close of the Terse,
he " looked at T. with a smile, and re
marked, gently, that she did not quite
touch a certain note. "But," said he,
the same low tone, "it ia very intri
cate." Again and again, they repeated
and the words still throb at my
heart: - - - ' -
. The battle's fought the victory won!
At length my father, rose, bowed.
without speaking, and retired. T. came
and set by me, silently, for a few mo
ments, an went up to her rest
And now the midnight has come,
my friend, and Sunday night is over-. I
must go now. But I shall still see
that picture of youth and age bending
over the old book the calm and pray
erful face of T. and the grave but rapt
look of my fatlier 1 shall still near, in
the morning watch, those sweet, sad
tones, and those glorious words
' 'Tis finished yes, the race is run.'"'.,
The battle's fought the victory won.

The Longest Story on Record.
The following will amuse almost any
one who taks the trouble and spares
the time to read it through: -
There was once a certain King, who,
like many t astern Hings, was very fond
of hearing stosies told. To the amuse-'
ment he gave up .all his time,, but yet
he was never satisfied. 1 he exertions
of his coutiers were all in vain ' He at
last made a proclamation that it any
man should tell him a story that should
last forever, he would certainly make
him his heir and give him the princess,
his daughter, in marriage, ' bu t if any
one should pretend he had such a story
and should fail, that is if the story
should come to an end be was to have
his head cut off.
For such a price as a beautiful prin
cess and a kingdom, many candidates

lasted a week, some a " - month
land some six months. Poor' fel-
owe, they all spun them out as long as
they possibly could, but all in va n.
Sooner or later they all came to an end,
and one after another the unlucky sto
ry-tellers . hat their heads chopped on.
At last came a man who said that he
had a story that would last forever, - if
his maiestr would be pleased to give
him a trial He warned him of his dan
ger; they toll mm how many others
had tried and lost their heads, but he
said he was not afraid ; and so he was
brought before the' king.. He was
man of very composed and deliberate
way of speaking, and, after making all
necessary stipulations for his eating and
sleeping, he thus began :
Ob, King, there was once a king
who was a great tyrant; and desiring
to increase his riches, he seized upon
the corn in his kingdom, and put it in
an immense granary, which was built
on purpose, as high as a mountain.
This he did for several years until the
granarv was quite full to the top. He
then stopped the doors and windows on
all sides. But the bricklayers had, by
accident, left a very small hole near the
top of the granary, and there came
flight of locstus and tried to get at the
corn, but the hole was so small that
only one locut-t could pass through at
time. So one locust went in and car
ried off one grain of corn, and then
another locust went in and carried off
another grain of corn, and then another
locust went in and carried off another
grain of corn.
He had goue on thus from morning
till night (except when he was engaged
at his meaU) for about a month, when
the King began to be rather tired with
his locusts, and interrupted his story
"WelL well, we have heard enough
of the locusts, we will suppose' they
helped themselves to all the corn they
wanted. Tell us what happened after
wards. To which the story teller, answered
deliberately : "If it pleases your Majesty,
it l impossible unless I tell' what
And then he went on: "Arid theu
another locu-t went in and carried off
another grain of c-Tn, and then another
locust went in and carried oU nrtlir
grain of corn, nnd then another locust
weut in and enrried off nnothor grain of
corn, and then another ocut went in
and carried off another grain of corn,
and then another locust went in and
carried off another grain of corn.";
The King" listened with unconquer
able patience for six mootlismore, when
he again interrupted him iwith:j
"Oh I friend 1 1 am weary of your lo
custs. ' How, soon do yon', think they
will have done !" .
; "To which the story-teller made aa
swer:" "Oh king, who. can tell I At
the time to which my story has come
the locusts , have cleared a small apace;
it may be a cubit each way round the
hole, and the air is still dark with lo
custs on all sides. But let the king
have patience, and no doubt we shall
have come to the end of theia in time."
Thus encouraged, the king listened
on for another full ear; the story-teller
going on still as before.,. ,
"And another locust went in and car
ried off another grain of corn, and then
another locust' went in and carried off
another grain of corn, and then another
locust went in and carried off another
grain of corn, and then ' another locusts
went in and carried off another grain of
corn, and then another locust - went in
and carried off another grain of corn."
-At last' the poor king could stand it
no longerj and cried out: 7 .
"Oh, man',' that is enough, take my
daughter ! take my kingdom ! take any
thing, every things only let me hear no
more of the abomniable locusts." '
And so the story teller was married
to the king's daughter, and was declar
ed heir to the throne, and nobody ever
expressed a wish to hear the rest of the
story, for he said it was impossible to
come to the other part of it till ha had
done with the locusts. ; : .'1,
Heir to the French Throne.
'The young Prince Napoleon- Eugene
Louis Jean Joseph, son of Napoleon and
Eugenie, and prospective Emperor of
France, was born on the 15th of March,
1856, and is now drawing toward the
completion; of his eleventh year.- While
still in arms he Was placed On the mus
ter roll of, ..the French imperial guards,
as a private in the -regiment; for, .a it
was intended that be should receive a
military 'education, and afterward as
sume a military command, it was design
ed as a compliment to the army that be
should, at least nominally, go through
all the gradations of the service.'" When
old enough to begin to learn the mili
tary exercises, he was put through them
with other youths of his own age, and
in this way he was taught the bayonet
and .other, drills .before he was eight
years old. -,
By this time, too, he had been made
a non-commissioned officer of his regi
ment, and he is now pacing, step by
step, through the various-grades toward
the rahk of colonel. But while special
attention has been given to his military
traininfir, hsa education as a citizen has
not been neglected.' Besides the ordi
nary .rudiments of instruction,' he has
received lessons in two or three handi
crafts, the last of which was the setting
up ' of types in the imperial printiag
office of Pans. -Ihe object of this may
have beeu simply to extend his sphere
of knowledge and enlarge his views in
after life ; but the ability to earn a liv
iner. like an- ordinary individual : has
even before now proved a valuable ac
complishment for even the heir to a
throne. -. In the event of : the death of
the Emperor Napoleon III, before the
prince imperial becomes of - age, it is
ranged that toe government of tb
country shall bo -.carried oo for a- time

How the President Lives.

In addition to all this, there are al

A Paper Kingdom.

kingdom without a king is somewhat
an anomaly. It is true Ireland was
kingdom, long after it ceased to have
king, but the title had a meaning be
cause it had once been,., a kingdom in
as well as in- name 4u fact having
many kingdoms within its borders. But
Canada never had a special royalty of
own, and there is no provision in the
that it ever shall have It is still

whose selection the people of Canada
have no choice.
The "Kingdom" of Canada is a
greater farce than the "Empire" of
Mexico. Hi e latter has a nominal
Emperor, who pretends to ' Imperial
power although he may not be able to
maintain his pretensions, ihe "iling-
dom"has nothing that can be construct
ed into the semblance of regal dignity.
How long will the throne remain unfil

Canadians will be disgusted with . the

days is not to be taken till about noon.
At that meal, if on any day permission
should be granted for eating flesh, both
flesh and fieh are not to be used at 'the
