The Vesper Bells that Broke an Exile Heart.
In the Cathedral of Liraer-rick, there hangs
chime of bells which were cast in Italy
oy an entiiusiast in tins trade, wno nxea nis
boro him on floated
home near the monastery where they weretirst
mug, that he might enjoy their sweet, solemn
v 11 1 ii . 1 11
music, in a political revolution tne uens were
taken away to some distant land, and the
maker himself became a refugee and exile.
His wanderings brought him,after many years,
to Ireland. On a calm and beautiful
as the vessel which
the placid bosom of the
this evening chime pealed forth from the Cathe
dral towers. His experienced ear caught the
sweet sounds, and he knew that his' lost treas
ures were found.-His early home, his friends,
his beloved and native land, all the best associa
tions of his life, werein those sounds. He laid
himself back in the boat, crossed his arms upon
his breast, and listened to the music. The boat
reached the wharf, but still he lay there silent
and motionless. They spoke to him, but he did
not answer. They went to him, but his spirit
had fled. ' The tide of memories that came vi
brating through his heart althat well-known
chime had snapped its life-strings.
Mysterious Occurrence at Sea.
[Correspondence from the London Globe.]
There is a little vessel in Gibaraltar
recent history is even moro mysterious than
that of the Murillo, and perhaps similarly
tragical to thatf the Northfleet The Mary
Celeste, an American brigautine, was fallen
in with a British vessel some 400 hundred
miles east of the Azores, and brought by her
to Gibaraltar, on December 13th. When she
was discovered she was under foremast, stay
sail and jib, and under this light .canvass she
had been pursuing hor way for ten days, without
a soul on board, the last entry on the
ship's log being on Nov. 21th. No other papers
were found on board: manifest,, bills of
landing, every document which could have
thrown any light on tho history ot derelict was
removed ; and up to this time, though the in
quiry is still going on, not tho slightest clue has
been traced to account for tho desertion of
the vessel, and even conjecture is at fault. The
cargo, consisting of barrels of spirits, is un
touched, with the exception of one cask which
had started. There are no signs of the vessel
having suffered from bad weather in any single
respect, the most minute examination having
failed to detect any injury above water or below
it. A Harmonium in the captain's cabin
and the music books are all untouched by salt
water. A little phail of oil was still standing
by a sewing machiue, and a reel of cotton and
thimblo had not yet rolled off the table. Nor
had tho cabin been plunderod, for its contents
belonging to a lady and a child, were of consid
erable value. A sword was in its scabbard rusty,
and with marks of blood having been wiped off.
There are marks like sharp cuts on the
top gallant 'rail, and on both sides of the ves
sel's bows, which appear to have been done on
nurnose: whether this points to any act of
violence, and withwhat raotivo committed why
the vessel was left under sail, or, in the
apparent absence of either plunder or peril, why
she was deserted at all is still an absolute
mystery; for up to the present moment no
trace has been found of the lady or child, of
tho captain, or any ono'of the -crew,
A very worthy fisherman lv tho namo of
Grizzle was drowned somo time since, and all
anarch for his bodv Droved unavailing. After
it had been in the water some months, ' how
ever, it was discovered floating on tho surface
and taken to tho shore, whereupon Mr. Smith
was dispatched to convey tho tidings to the
much afflicted widow. "Well, Mrs.i Grizzle,
we have" found Mr. Grizzle's body." j "You
don't say so 1" "Yes we havethe jury has
sot on it and found it full of eels." : "You
don't say Mr. G.'s body is full of eels?" "Yes
it is ; and wo want to know what you will have
done with it." "Why, how many eels do you
think there is in him?" "Oh,about a bushel."
"Well, then, I think you had bettor send the
. .. . i - i i a
eels up to tne nouso, anil Bei mm again.
