VOL, III. oITY OF CARR JEFFERSONLA., SATURDAY, JULY 28, 1860. NO. 11.
The Tides.-B-y wtLLzAM cULLEN LIlYANT.
The moon is at her full, and, riding high,
Floods the calm fields with light,
The airs that hover in the summcr
Are all asleep to-night.
There comes no voice fr-m
That murmured all the day;
Beneath the shadow of their boughs
Is not more still than they.
But ever heaves fnd moans the resa'
His rising tides I h,ear,
Afar I see the glimmering billo ,;
I see them breaking near.
Each wave springs upward, climbig towards
Pure light that sits on high
Springs eagerly, and faintly sinks to where
The mother waters lie.
Upward again it swells; the moonbeams show,
Again, its glimmering crest;
Again it feels the fatal weight below,
And sinks, but not to rest.
Again and yet again; until the Deep
Recalls his rooad of waves;
And, with a sullen moan, abashed, they creep
Back to his inner caves.
Brief respite ! they shall rush from that recess
With noise and tumult soon,
And fling themselves, with unavailing stress,
Up toward the placid moon.
Oh, restless Sea, that in thy prison here
Dost struggi' and complain ;
Through the slow centuries yearning to be near
To that fair orb in vain.
'rho glorious source of light and heat must warm
Thy bosom with his glow,
And on tiome mounllting waves a nobler form
And freer life bestow.
Then only may they leave the waste of brino
In which they welter here,
And r.se abover the hills of earth, and shine
* In a scrcr sphelre.
Tht~ Glorious Unlcertainty of the Law.
In a certain town in Normandy," the
authorities, ("for divers good zeasons
them thereunto moving,") thought pro
per to issue a proclamation to the effect,
that none of the worthy inhebitaltsa,
under a severe penalty, sh6b ld" stir
abroad after sunset without a atern.
Well, it chanced that on the.4 yV lame
evening, a man was seized ahd .teyl
incontinently before the 'disc necd
justice, to be summarily' deale ribit
according to the new law. '
"I am exceedingly sorry," said the
chief otficer, recoginizing the individtiOl,
"that it citizen (,f your respectability
and station, should be the fi:st -, in
fringe the new regulation."
"1 would not willingly do so," said
tilhe man coolly.
"Have you not read it ?"
"Certainly," replied the captured
party-"but I may have unfortunately
misunderstood it. Will Monsieur
oblige me by reading it, that I may
learn of what I aml guilty ?"
The officer graciously complied, and
after glibly runninl over the verbose
preamble, cainme to thte point-"That no
inhabitant should stir abroad after sun
set without a lantern," which lie cer
tainly delivered with peculiar emphasis,
to the administration of the man wiho
had taken the man into custody, and
was twiddling his fingers impatiently to
receive his moiety of the tine.
"I have a lantern, Monsieur," firmly
contended the nma; , holding it up to
"Yes-but there is no candle in it,"
replied the officer, with a smile.
"'The proclaimation does not mlOtionl
at candle, I believe, Monsieur," replied
the cunning follow, most respectfully.
"A candle-but of course "
begun the informer, trembling lest
he should lose the fish Iet had hooked.
"It does not mention it candle; and I'
contend, Monsieur, I have not infringed
the law," persisted the q.Libbler. "The
words are 'without a lantern,' and here
"H 'Iern!"cried.the oficer, endeavoring
to conceal the cmnfusion occasioned kby
his defeat, by poring over the copy ,f
the proclamattion. " I must--yes, I
must c('nfess that there is an olmissioll,
and I am too happy to give you the
benefit thereof. The case is dis

A Liar Caught in Ilis own Net.
' You conme late, my friend-"
These words conveying something of
tender reproach, were uttered by a
young and beautiful woman, seated in
an elegant saloon in one of the streets
of Paris. Ioe to whom this flattering
reproach was addressed, just then en
tering the room, was a young .mnan of
genteel appearance, elegantly dressed,
and judging'from his manner profoundly
impressed with a high sense of his own
imnportance ". . .
" True," eplied the gentlew~~n, with
an air of clrer.lss freedom, "I regrpt'it,.
indeed; but-'i, affair of importar~*e

In spite of their rights.and pre

invents some trick according to the
weight of his chain, that is, according
to the character of his wife. . In this
way no ;meaan efforts of genius are often
displayed in the shades of private life.

Salready >k1iti place,
testament of 'doe Sareuil,
IkiE wrath at quitting the world
Jhere was anything to be enjoyed,
4 the following clause in his last
d testament :

on that for five years she lays
her mourning, abj tires all par

,tt seems good in her
was a terrible sacrifice, but the
thousand pounds left her on such
itions were not to be lost by non
-npliance therewith. Mme. de Sareuil
armed herself with patience, and Leo
pold, who had been her lover previous
to her first marriage, haviug pressed
his claim on the ground of his ancient
passion, was received in quality of pro
tender to the hand of the beautiful and
rich widow. All other rivals were dis
tanced, and he alonq remained master
of the field. He had only to wait the
completion of the time fixed by the
defunct husband. He was young, vain,
and felt it difficult to accommodate him
self to a sentimental tcte-a-tete pro
longed through five consecutive years.
The house of Mmo. do Sareuil was al
ways open to hint from morning till
night. Great assiduity was expected of
him. and the manner in which he em
ployed his time was often inquired into.
Ilis cares were numerous, and his posi
tion not unlike that of a real husband
at least lie was subjected to most, if not
all its rlrlb:irrassments. Wishing to
place to good account the last days of
his celibacy, and on the other hand de
siring to retain his credit unimpaired
with the widow, his career placed him
at length in a position somewhat ambi
guous. He became enveloped in pro
found dissimulation, and in order to ex
tricate himself from accumnulating diffi
culties, invented his friend Tussac.
On the occasion referred to at the
commencement, instead of going at six
o'cloclk to the house of Mine. de Sareuil,
who expected him to dine with ther, he
did not make his appearance till half
" Detained by your friand Tuasrc,"
said the beautiful widow with an air of
discontent; "this is what you always
say to no " .
-" You must know I havy boeo con
nected with Tussac ever sin*o.lmir col
lege days, and that his friendship is
very useful to nme."
"I know all your friends but this
Tussac. Whiy hovo you not presented
him to me ?"
"Tussac is an original,'.' replied Leo
pold, " apbeau who fears. to show lrim
~slf. He will not endure anry restraint.
:pdxlressos very negligently, says eve
kyh%4g that comes into his head, and
smokes oontinually. Three faults which
render him unfit fo r the iociety of ladies.
I have attempted to inprove himil in
threse particulars,.but mry efforts have
been in vain."
" 1 am very curious to see haim," ,lo,
served the willow.
" Perrhaps in our watlk.. aiu day wi,
shall inwet him," rIl,lied Leopold; 'thicr
we shall take him I, .~rlrie."
The next day Irs d" gliýreui1 said to
"Explain to me, my friend; fte disor

S1)o you doubt mlo ?"
" Not in the least."
' Vill you tell nwe hl;w and where
you employed yourself last evening !"
asked the widow.
"" Last evening ! but-yes-iothing
more readtlily. I was at the show."
" At the (lynnsauimn, in a front seat,
on the grmiuld floor, the first on the left!
You had a tlady with you. You see 1
amun well informed, sir. Who was that
" I was along with no lady," replied
Leopold. "O)n the back scat of the box
was my friend 'I'ussne, and in front of
him at may side sat his sister."
"AAh! has MI. 'l'ussac a sister ?"*
l" le has two."
"" You have never spoken t i) me of
" They are married in the province ;
I scarcely know them; they very rarely
come to Paris."
" Hold, Leopold !" said the widow,
" will you do one thing that will make
me infinitely happy ?"
"You have only to demand it."
" Well, break off at once t hi in
timate liaison with 'ITussac and his
"'That will be very difficult," replied
Loeopold. "I am just on the point of
associating him with myself in a great
industrial enterprise-an exploration of
certain mines, the privilege to do which
has been granted us by the minister,
who is full of good will towards T'russac,
his cousin ; for Tussac is cousin to the
minister ; and that minister, through
my friend Tussac, has already been
very serviceable td my family."
A slight shade of jealousy, which had
obscured the countenance of the beau
tiful widow, disappeared before the jus
tification of Leopold, who never in vain
invoked to his aid his friend Tuussu.
But suddenly tbh~, arelessness of the
young dandy exposed his reputation for
fidelity to peril much iaore.gravo. Ho
Was seated at the saide of Mmo, de
Sareuil, entertnmling her familiarly with
his approaching happiness.
" Only four months," said he, " and
wve shall be united !"
"Yes," replied the widow, "in four
months the interdiction will be raised."
"You will quit your weeds," conlin
ued Leopold, '" which long since left
your heaOrt; you will return to that
world, of which for a long time you will
he a brilliant ornament."
"Your gallantry is chI'lnmiiig to day!"
