Hush! the murmur of the river.
And the bree se through oak and pine
Flutters to the pen casement,
ThrttU the aiender Eglantine ;
Lol one comes; I hear the rustle
Of her garmenta through the gloom.
And her footstep wakes the echo.
And her presence fills the room.
Bush I I hear a trembling promise
And fond farewell of tears.
And raj TiEion lies behind me
In the valley of the years;
For a moment met together.
Neither speak, and neither more.
With a sudden sense of sorrow
Bom of memory and of Love.
Hush 1 the night U still, and holy.
Love must whisper full of truth.
And the glory ot her presence
Brightens all my wasted youth.

-Oh 1 beloved, 1 forgive I "

When the dead return and live.
BROWN OF CALAVERAS.
X subdued tone of conversation, and the
absence of cigar-smoke, and boot-heels, at
the windows of the Wingdam stage-coach,
made it evident that one of the inside pas
sengers was a woman. A disposition on
the part of loungers at the stations to con
gregate before the window, and some con
cern in regard to the appearance of coats,
hats and collars, farther indicated that she
was lovely. All of which Mr. Jack Ham

evenings before he had won several thou

more pleasing features of his neighbor.

the Wingdam road, like one leaving an un

their eyes with their hands, and looked af

and speculating what "was up with Com

opon them with a badinage peculiar to
himself that they were emboldened to climb
np bis horse's legs and over his saddle, un

sight to see this sentimental blackleg, with
a pack of cards in his pocket and a revol

about his "Nelly's grave," in a way that
overflowed the eyes of the listener. A

Mr. Hamlin did not sing in his cage.
He lay still, looking at a highly-colored
painting above him, representing a young
creature of opulent charms. It occurred
to him then, for the first time, that he had
never seen exactly that kind of a woman,
and that, if he should, he would not, prob

was thinking of another Btjle of beauty.

"Weil, Jack, a man must have a little

you say to a little game? Give us a show
to double this hundred."
Jack Hamlin looked curiously at his fatu
ous friend. Perhaps he knew that the man
was predestined to lose the money; and
preferred that it should flow back into his
own coffers, rather than any other. He
nodded his head, and drew his chair to
ward the table. At the same moment there
came a rap upon the door.
"It's Kate," said Mr. Brown.
Mr. pimlin shot back the bolt, and the
door opened. Bat for the first time in his
life, he staggered to his feet, utterly un
netved and abashed, and for the first time
in his life, the hot blood crimson his color
less cheeks to his forehead. For before
bim stood the lady hs had from the Wing
dam coach, whom Brown dropping his
cards with a hysterical laugh greeted as
"My old woman, by thunder."
They say that Mrs. Brown burst into
tears, and reproaches of her husband. I
saw her, in 1857, at Marysville, and disbe
lieve the story. And the Wingdam Chron

Whether owing to Mrs. Brown's influ

that day, steadily improved. He bought
out his partners in the "Nip and Tuck"
lead, with money said to have been won at

but which rumor, adopting Mrs. Brown's
theory that Brown had loresworn the gaming-table,
alleged to have been furnished
Mr. Jack Hamlin. He built and furnished
the "Wingdam House," which pretty Mrs.
Brown's great popularity kept overflowing
with gueuts. He was elected to the Assem
bly, and gave largest to churches. A street
in Wingdam was named in his honor.
Yet, it was noted that in proportion as
he waxed wealthy and fortunate, he grew
pale, thin, and anxious. As his wife's pop
ularity increased, he became fretful and im
patient. The most uxorious ol husbands
he was absurdly jealous. If he did not
interfere with his wife's social liberty, it
was because it was maliciously whispered
that his first and only attempt was met
by wn outburst trom Mrs. Brown that terri
fied him into silence. Much of this kind
of gossip came from those of her own sex
whom 6he had supplanted in the chival
rous attentions of Wingdam which, like
moss popular chivalry, was devoted to an
admiration of power, whether of masculine
force or feminine bt auty. It should be re
membered, too, in her extenuation, tbat
since her arrival she had been the uncon
scious priestess of a mythological worship,
per h p.ps not more ennobling to her woman
hood than that which distinguished an
older Greek democracy. I think that Mr.
Brown was dimly conscious of this. Bat
his only confidant was Jack Hamlin, whose
tnfelix reputation naturally precluded any
open intimacy with the family, and whose

"Dost," said Mrs. Brown, with a sigh.

Mr. Brown was in the stable, where he
generally retired after dinner. Perhaps it
was to show his contempt for his wife's
companions; perhaps, like other weak naj
tares, he found pleasure in the exercise o
absolute power over inferior animals. He
had a certain gratification in the training
of a chestnut mare, whom he he could beat

do with Mrs. Brown. It was here that he

restrained. But at Brown's urgent request
he followed him np the back-stairs to a nar
row corridor, and thence to a small room
looking out upon the stable-yard. It was
plainly furnished with a bed, a table, a few
chairo, and a rack for guns and whips.
"This yer's my home, Jack," said Brown,
with a sigh, as he threw himself upon the
bed and motioned his companion to a chair.

Mr. Hamlin did not avail himself of the
information. Brown, of Calaveras, turned
his face to the wall, and continued:

how much I loved her till then. And she

pillow, and, lor a few moments, there was
no sound but the ticking of a clock on the
mantel, Mr. Hamlin lit a cigar, and moved
to the open window. The moon no longer
shone in the room, and the bed and its oc
cupant were in shadow. "What shall I do,
Jack?" said the voice from the darkness.
The answer came promptly and clearly
from the window-side: " Spot the maa,

A Washington Shoemaker's Daughter Captivates a Foreign Official Officer.
Washington (Feb. 5) Correspondence of the New
Herii is a sprightly bit of fashionable
gossip. Pierre Bonaparte has become fa
mous for marrying a saddler's daughter
and shooting an offensive editor. Ihe first
act was regarded as a noble piece of hero
ism on his part A certain young foreign
gentleman residing in this elty has fur
nish ed almost a parallel to Pierre Bona
parte's honorable conduct toward a sad
dler's daughter. The story is this: The
young gentleman was walking down
Pennsylvania avenue about three or four
weeks ago, enjoying pleasant promenade
along our Washington Broadway, when
his attention was suddenly attracted by a
very pretty girl standing in the doorway of
a shoe store. Oar hero was lascinated in
stantaneously. It was literally love at
first sight On pretence of making some
purchases in the leather line, he entered
the store, engaged in conversation witn
the maiden, and discovered she was the
daughter of the proprieter. Our hero
found excuses for making subsequent visits
to tbe store, and finally the parents of the
girl, noticing this marked attention to
their daughter, and thinking that disparity
in rank was too great to admit of proper
addresses, politely informed him that they
would prefer him to discontinue his calls.
The young gentleman, with an unexpected
manliness and evident sincerity, told the
parents that his intentions were honorable
to the last degree; tbat he loved the daugh
ter devotedly, and that, though their
respective 'stations differed widely,
an arrangement could be made which,
he hoped, would prove satisfactoy
to both sides. He told the father
that his child was yet young enough to be
thoroughly educated and fitted for any
station in life, and that if he would con
sent he, the young gentleman, would have
the girl sent to one of the bent academies
in the country, there to be instructed in
all the accomplishments and acquirements
desirable. The young gentleman also
offered to give a solemn pledge that he
would never visit the young lady at the
academy, and that at the end of the educa
tional course, if she still entertained a feel
ing of affection for him, he would lay at her
feet his hand and heart I am informed
that the generous proposal has been ac
cepted, and that the young lady is now at
a female academy in a neighboring city.
The whole thing is looked upon here as
highly creditable to all the parties concern
ed. The young man occupies a very high

While pursuing his calling, when his earn

success that he has obtained a certificate
of Lis ability to be a schoolmaster. Un
derstanding Germany to be the seat of
knowledge, he is learning German, and al
so short-hand, and intends to work his way
through Spain and France to Germany,
and there pursue his studies, and to make
his short-hand a substitute for the purchase

Troubles a Son of Mrs. Hemans at
A late letter from Paris has this para
graph: Some years ago, Mr. Charles Hemans,
son of the poet, stepped from the Church
of England to that of Rome, and also ex
changed England for Rome as his place of
residence. There he was made much of
by the ecclesiastics, and became a favorite
with the hierarchy, on account of his per
sonal excellencies, and besought of the
English for his aid as an intelligent
guide. He knew everything about Borne,

Pabisian journals relate that after every
cosrt ball at the Tuileries, the inagiificent

themselvt s of their high-heeled boot, al
ways find bil tl doux in -them. The Inde
pendance Beige relates the following anec
dote in regard to this: One of the invited
guests had canght his wife in the act of
delivering a tender epistle to one of the
gala soldiers. Tbe husband wished to
revenge himself on her, and did so in a
highly ingenius manner. On the day af
ter tbe court ball, he was seated with his
wife at the table, when suddenly the door
bell was rung very violently. A servant
entered the room and said, "There is at the
door a soldier who desires to see Madame.
The lady turned very pale, but the husband
seemed not to pay tbe slightest attention to
it Next day the same scene took place at
tbe dinner table, and the servant appeared
again, saying, "There is at the door a
soldier asking for Madame ." ' Is it
the same who was there yesterday?" "No."
"I am not at home." On the following
days the sam scene was re-enacted. Fin
ally, the tormented wife could stand it no
longer, and so she said to her husband, "I
am the victim of a poor joke. Show these
men the poor." "Madame;" replied the
husband, I sent these persons myself, Yoa
wished for a Ide-a-tete with a soldier; I fulfill
your wish and procure you such a one
every day. We have eight hundred thou
sand men in arms; so yon may have visits
from soldiers for two hundred and twenty

were, various letters were written, which
resulted iu demonstrating that the univer

AN EXCITING SCENE.
Desperate Encounter with a Whale in
Provincetown (Mass.) Harbor.
Proviiicetown Cor. of the Yarmouth Register.
Two "right" whales were discovered in
the harbor about 3 o'clock Monday after
noon last The cry of "there she blows 1
was soon repeated along the shore, directly
followed by hasty manning of whale boats,
and hurrying into them the weapons and
gear for chase and capture. Some half
dozen Doats eqmpped and manned with
six men, each soon started in pursuit
After a chase df about three-quarters of an
hour, the whales the while deftly eluding
their pursuers by soundings and irregular
spouting s, a boat steered by Mr. George
Smith and "headed" by Mr. Archibald
McCurdy, both experienced whalemen,
was run upon the broadside of oneof them.
and McCurdy, to use his phrase, "sent his
iron home to tbe seizing into her bilge.
The scene now became exciting to the
actors, and hundreds of spectators who
were witnessing the proceedings from the
town.- lao wind at the time was blowing
a gale from the north, and so cold that the
spray froze as it flew. The whale ran
sharr,lrVi tf windward, now tn IacwuM
thjn'iJiLrvring theashoal water back and
forth 4ong the west end of the harbor, the
loose vhule all the time keeping close com
pany with his wounded mate, and the sea
spray enveloping the crew, and at tames
obscuring the boat from view. The enrag
ed whale in her frantic career, poised upon
her ncse, and elevating her flakes 20 feet
above water, would again and again strike
fearfully for her invisible foe.
Every attempt to haul up and lance was
met by her flakes just clear of the boat
Thus the contest continued without much
change of manoeuvre or advantage gained
by either antagonist until about half-past
5 p. m., when the whale succeeded in de
livering the boat a slight blow with her
tail, knocking on the- head of the stern
post, breaking the steering oar into sever
al pieces, and filling her to the thwarts
with water. Another boat near at hand
took her tow line, but after a short time,
the whale still lighting and preventing any
near approach, and ni -ht setting in, the
harpooner reluctantly cut the line and let
her go. Her wound is thought to be mor
tal, as she bled profusely, and it is expect
ed she may be picked up in a few days in
Tbe crew of the crippled boat on reach
ing the shore were completely encased in
ice, enveloping even the head of Mr. Smith
who bad lost his hat Several of the oth
er crews were badly frost-bitten.
" Somebody's Bab of Ibon." Dayton,
Ohio, has got a street railway, and the re
porter of one of the papers there relates
the following, incidental thereto: A fanner
from Perry township, who doesn't read the
papers, and had never seen or heard of a
street railway, when on his way the city,
for the first time for three months, discov
ered a portion of one of the iron rails of
the street railway, where the snow had
melted and disclosed it to plain view, at
the eastern terminus, and he straightway
alighted from his wagon, and endeavored
to secure it " Somebody's lost his bar of
iron F exclaimed the farmer, as he caught
hold of it, ' and the denied thing's froze
mighty fast, too !" His efforts were futile,
for he couldn't budge the bar. Just then,
a man came along, and informed the ven
erable fossil that it was a rail of the street
railway, and reached from that point to the
extreme east end of Dayton, and that he'd
better let it lay there ! And he druv on.
A cdBBESPOSPEST a physician residing

the sick woman drove np,. whereupon her
husband exclaimed, The dog did reach
her after aU 1' On asking for an explana

send for his daughter, he had sent off at
noon on tba' same day, his little black and

neck, simply saying to him, 'Go, sir, to
Elmira's.' Atth'ee o'clock, the little fel

traveled a distance of seven miles over an
exceedingly difficult and tortuous route.
The daughter recognized the dog, read the
note, and reached her mother's house at 5
Head Monbt. The New York Legisla
ture has under consideration a bill reducing
the commutation or head money on emi
grants entering New York, from $2.50 to
$1.50 a passenger. The Commissioners of
Emigration, it is asserted, have, during
the last eight years, accumulated a fund of
$8,000,000, besides paying all expenses
and demands npon them. The head money
is intended to guarantee the city and state
of New York against the able-bodied emi
grants becoming a burden on the public.
Special bonds are given in the case ot weak
and disabled emigrants. It is argued that
the State should not levy a heavier tax
than is needed to secure it from imposition,
while, on the other hand, it is proposed,
while retaining the present rate, to draw
from the annual amount of head money
the expenses of quarantine and the Marine
