Sweet i the Toie thai calls
v iam babbling wmterf &Us
In meadows where the downy seeds are flying ;
And soft the breezes blow
And eddying come and go
In faded gardens where the rose Is dying.
Among the slabbled corn
The blithe quail pipes at morn.
The merry partridge drums in hidden places,
And guttering insects gleam
Above the reedy stream
When buoy spiders spin their filmy laces.
At ere, cool shsdows fall
Across the garden will.
And on the clustered grapes in purple tnrning.
And pearly vapors lie
Along the Eastern sky
Where the broad harvest-moon is redly burning.
Ah, soon on field and hill
The winds shall whistle chill,
And patriarch swallows call their locks together,
To fly from frost and snow.
And seek for lands where blow
The fairer blossoms of a balmier weather.
The pollen-dusted bees
8earch for the honey-lees
That linger in the last flowers of September,
While plaintive mourning doves
Coo sadly to their loves
Of the dead summer they so well remember.
The cricket chirps all day,
" O, fairest summer stay !
The sq nine! eyes askance the chestnuts browning :
The wild fowl fly afar
Above the foamy bar
And hasten southward ere the skies are frowning.
Now comes a fragrant breeze
Throngh the dark cedar trees
And "round about my temples fondly lingers,
In gentle playfulness
Like to the soft caress
Bestowed in happier daya by loving fingers.
Yet though a sense of grief
Comes with tue falling leaf.
And memory makes the summer doubly pleasant,
In all my autumn dreams
A future summer gleams
Passing the fairest glories of the present !
DREAM AND A SLEEP.
I bad just completed my twenty-fifth
year when I first set foot in London. I
bad come up partly to see the place, and
partly to see a relative whom we expected
to arrive from India any day of the week.
As yon know, Mark, I have always been
a quiet, curious, dull fellow, taking little
interest in the ordinary amusements pro
vided for the general public, and having
no appiwiauun jor wuai is cauea iun.
So that instead of seeking a theater, or
some other brilliant place of entertain
ment, put on an overcoat, lit a cigar, and
walked out about 9 o'clock.
Thera was a dense fog, and the air was
damp and unwholesome. I happened to
be slaying at a hotel so situated that by
the map I took all my bearings with re
lation to Holborn. The gas lamps on
the opposite side of the street were to
be seen like balls of tow illuminated by
a dull glow. They were visible, but
gave no light. I was in a large and very

became a little depressed and confound
ed, and meeting a quiet-looking street
wnicn seemed to lead into some silent,
. lake-like square, 1 turned down, and ex
perienced the most inexpressible relief
from the mumed muteness around.
I suppose I must have gone about a
hundred and fifty yards in a straight line
before I discovered there was no way of
exit at the end. I crossed, and began
walking back toward the head of the
street. Before I got half way I reached
a turning to the left, and for a moment
stood irresolute as to which course
As I was deliberating, I heard footsteps
approaching rapidly. The tread was
that of a man running quickly. I drew
a little out of the way to let him pass;
but, as he went to the same side, he ran
against me rather forcibly, and, tripping
over a raised stone in the kennel, fell
heavily to the ground. I helped him to
rise. He was not hurt; and when he
and I had exchanged apologies he turned
slowly down the street to the left, and
walked with bent head and deliberate
The two questions which arose to me
were, who was lie and what had occa
sioned lus haste? His manner and
speech were those of a irentleman: and.
as far as I could sec, there was nothing
m his dross or appearance inconsistent
with the presumption that he was one.
What could make a man of his class
rush down a by-street at such a pace, and
then suddenly, upon receiving a mo
mentary check, subside into a shamble ?
Had he committed some crime, and
were the ministers of justice upon his
I listened, half expecting to hear the
clatter of feet in chase. All was still in
the street, and from beyond the street
the sound oi traffic came feebly and
dully, like the muttering of water in a
Mechanically I turned into the narrow
street the man had entered. I could not
relieve my mind of him. He clung to
me like the vapor. But what was it that
seemed so strange about him? All of
its have experienced the phenomenon of
remembering, or recalling, or reimpos
ing on the mind persons and objects of
which, at the time they were displayed
' to us, we took no sensible mental impres
sion. So it was now with me in this
case. I began realizing his face; al
though at the time we stood opposite to
one another I had no image of which I
was conscious in my mind. Now the
face was beginning to float up out of the
gloom, and to trouble me.
At first I could make ont in the cham
bers of my perplexed mind no more of
that face than a geneial expression of
strange excitement wrestling with some
thing else. Whence came that excite
ment? and what was that something
else? I have always taken a great de
light in trying to read the heart throngh
the face. This man's manner puzzled
me considerably, and when I first felt
the recollection of his lace dawning upon
me I said to myself, Now I phall know
all. But it never came before me dis
tinctly. I was distracted by it, -without
being able to seize a firm hold of it, or
of any leading idea in connection with
it, beyond the general expression of ex
citement constrained or influenced by
some conienuing iorce.
I was very much interested in my
vague speculation, and I must have
walked more than a mile before I became
aware of the fact that I had been making
turns without recording them. So that
when I awoke to a sense of my situation
I had lost my way. 1 received an un
pleasant shock; for although I had no
fear, the plnoe where I found myself was
gloomy and forbidding in the extreme.
Overhead hung huge warehouses.
whose upper stones were lost in the fog
and night. The lane was narrow, and
practicable only to foot passengers,
Strain my ears as I might, I could hear
no hum oi voices, no souud of wheels,
no bells, no noise of . life. A chill fell
upon me. Mr imagination took fire.
and it seemed to me that I had wandered
beyond the confines of life into some city
which stood up with houses and towers,
but knew no informing footfall of the
quick, no gentle whisperings of the dead.
I pushed on hurriedly. Suddenly
heard a soniul. Click click click.
"Billiards?" I thought joyously, and
following the direction given by the
rouuJ, I fonud a d-mr, pmhe.l it open,
walked through a long narrow passago,
and entered thu rjom where the game
was going on.
Thie were five persons in tli9 room,
namely, the nurk.r, two players, and
one man sitting on a si Jo Feat. I should
have Cftllpd him a spectator, but that he
eermed to bo fast nsleot.
I s,it down direet y opposite liiin. His
Itrad was ln-iit low upon his chest ; his
hit was crushed down over his ryes ; his
arm hung liinplv Ixsuide him ; his
appearance was tint of one utterly
overcome, and I immediately came to the
conclusion that he had sat too long for
I fisked my way of the marker, and
finding I had not drifted very far from
my anchorage, nmle up my mind to sit
and watch a game or two.
I think I must have been upward of
an honr in the billiard-room, when one
of the players accidentally touched the
sleeper with the butt end of his cue and
roused him. It is impossible to express
my astonishment when once I saw the
face I but dimly remembered ; the face
of him who had fallen in the narrow
street some hours before.
I whs more than surprised I was
shocked. How did it come we two
shotdd meet again that same night? How
did it come that this man, whose very
appearance had troubled me, should
turn up once more in this unac
countable manner? Was fate busy
between him and me? I felt un
comfortable. When his eye fell upon
me there was no gleam of recognition.
He did not remember we had met be
fore. He did not materially alter his posi
tion. He sat limp and spiritless, as one
completely crushed. Now I saw plainly
that there was no artificial lethargio in
fluence at work in him. Now I discov
ered the second element in the conten
tion ; it was extremely physical fatigue.
I could still see the hunger for action in
his eye ; he watched the swiftly travel
ing balls as though he envied them ; but
his heavy limbs lay abroad as though
there were no power left to rally them.
How was this condition to be accounted
for? Poverty could have nothing to do
with it He wore one ring which must
have cost more than many families
have to spend in a whole year. His
dress was a little tossed and soiled,
but of the most fashionable cut and

I could not keep my eyes off him.
At length the balls ceased to roll ; the
players took their leave ; the lights were
turned down ; tne marker approached
the weary man and asked if he wished to
play. " No," in a tremulous voice, ont
of which all the volume and spirit had
departed. As he uttered the word he
rose heavily, came with a slow pace
round the table, and entered the long
passage. I followed. As he reached
the outer door I entered the passage.

and followed him through an intricate
network of narrow lanes. At length we
came into a broader street, and I as
sumed, from the dip in the ground, and
a certain sensation of vagueness and
coldness ahead, that we had entered the
approach to a bridge. He walked rap
idly away, and I was about ten paces be
hind. .Presently the ground ceased to
fall. It became level. I missed the
houses, and, looking more closely, made
out a low parapet.
Still he hurried on. I drew nearer to
him. There was no knowing the mo
ment he would place his hand on that
low parapet and vault into the obscured
waters beneath. The perspiration stood
out on my forehead. I was on the point
oi rusmng lorward and seizing Mm,
when he drew up suddenly, and placed
his hand on the parapet. There was
now no doubt of his intention. I leaped
forward and tapped him smartly on the

completely disregarded my question,

To my profound astonishment, I may
say horror, he burst out into a hysterical
laugn, leaned against the parapet of
bridge, and surveyed me with a half-
amused, half-pitying look. After a mo
ment he shook himself ; regarded me
nxedly, asked me where 1 lived or
stayed; and when I had answered, said,
" (Jome with me.
There were two good objects to ha at
tained by going with him: I should
draw him away from the river, and
myself should get home. We walked in
silence together. I did not know how
reopen the conversation after what had
occurred. .Evidently he did not wish to
speak. His gait was unsteady, and when
we had gone about half a mile I asked
we should get a cab, or if he would take
my arm. He made no reply, but took
my arm and leaned heavily upon me.
I haven't the least idea of the way we
went, we made many turnings, and
grew gradually to feel that we were pen
t trating the better portion of London.
Lights shone over the doors, and music
came from the drawing-rooms, and more
than onco I caught guinpsss of spacious
halls through doorways whilo carriages
waited without. I was on the point of
asking him if he were quite sure he had
not been deceived by the fog, when he
stopped before a large house in a square
" I do not know this place," I said.
" But I do. You need not be afraid.
Do I look like a decoy?"
Tho door was opened by a porter, and
we entered a spacions hall, lighted by
huge gasolier of dull ainber ghvs. Pitss

another and narrower one ; out of this
we passed into a dark passage of consid
erable length, and, finally, into a small,
low room. Prom ceiling to floor hung
ambar silk curtains, and between them
stood vast mirrors. There wero only
one small table and two chairs. Along
three sides of the chamber ran low
couches covered with amber velvet.
dull yellow Turkey carpet covered the
floor, and overhead hung a single lamp
with a single floating wick. On the

and a pair of old flint pistols curiously

He motioned me to one of the chairs.
"Take a seat," he said, moving his band
to a silver gong that stood on the tible,
and sinking into the luxurious easy-chair.

and looked closely at him. He was a
young man, not more than nine-and-twenty,
or thirty at most, but looking
much older under tne inuuence of ex

flushed and hectic, and his eyes were
dim and bloodshot. His figure was
slender almost to emaciation, and deep
lines marked the face, speaking of pre

and began in a low, strained voice, like
who listens to words which have
traveled from a distance and repeats
them as they come.
I need go no further into the past
than to tell you that five years ago my
father was living and I was his third son.
At tnat time I fell in love. 1 will trouble
you with no rhapsodies. It was my first
and only love. It was returned fully
and freely ; but I was too poor. Her
father would not hear of it, and in less

compelled by all and every means that a
tyrannical father and pliant mother could
devise, to marry a rich Jamaica mer
chant, a widower, a man nearly three
times her age. Since then I have neither
seen her nor heard of her. Within a
twelvemonth of her marriage my two
elder brothers were drowned while
yachting in the Mediterranean, and I be
came heir. My father never recovered
the shock of their death, and in a few
months more he followed them to the
grave. The very day my poor father
was buried I left England, and from that
honr till now I have spent but three days
in this country. I arrived here three
days ago. I was worn out with travel,
and retired early. I had not been more
than an hour asleep when I awoke bathed
from head to foot in a cold perspiration.
I was trembl-'ng in every limb. I had
dreamed that I was standing on the deck
of an Atlantic cteamer, and there come
toward me a figure draped in black. I

of a woman in widow's weeds. The veil
was down, but I seemed to feel the face.
Slowly, and when the figure was no
farther from me than this table upon
which my hand rests, the veil was raised,
and I saw her face. With a shriek
awoke. That was my dream. What

"Half -past twelve."

I protested ; but he overruled me. He
placed some cushions on a conch, and
throwing a rng over me, said he would
utter no other word until day had come
and brought the news.
I resolved to close my eyes ; but I had
come a long journey that day, and I was
completely worn ont Gradually the
warmth and silence overcame me, and
sank into unconsciousness.
I was aroused by a knock at the door,
I looked across the room. He was sit
ting in precisely the same position as
had last seen him. Ho saw me move,
and asked :
" Are you awake ?"
" Would you be good enough to take
that telegram from the servant ! I don't
want him to come in."
I went to the door as he had requested.
I closed tho door.

Weekly Review of the Chicago Market.
There was no change to note in rates, the
abundance of money and comparatively light
demand enabling borrowers with good seenrity
to obtain favors at 7(5910 per eeut Govern
ment bonds firm and steady, with a good inquiry.
The grain markets daring the past week
have attracted considerable attention from
speculators, and a liberal boslneoa was trans
acted. The markets have been very unsettled,
and fl actuations la tallies were both frequent
and severe. The Closing quotations, how
ever, show a slight advance on wheat,
oats and barley, and a decline on
corn. The main influence governing
the movements of speculators was the weather.
Fine favorable weather produced a desire to
sell, while prices would rule lower under the
heavy offerings, then again when it would be
cold Boilers would hold off and buyers would
take hold freely, causing a reaction and
an improvement in values. The receipts
were generally higher and the shipments
heavier, the stock in store showing a steady
decrease, and holders are therefore firmer in
their views. Corn wag the chief center of in
terest, the market at one time ruling c lower,
then recovered 23o, and closed steady. East

There was noparticalar alteration in the con
dition of the butter market during the past
week. There was but little demand on snip

light and the supply of the better grades was
barely sufficient to meet the requirements of

A COLORADO HAIL-STORM.
Hail-Stones Three Inches in Diameter—A
Railroad Train Bombarded with Chunks
Tile Denver Newt of a recent date
says t Art eye-witness, arid A passenger
On the east-bound train, describes the
torriflo hailstorm which occurred at
Potter Station. On the Union Pacifio rail
road, iWfty night. The train was just
pulling ont from the station wnen tne
storm commenced, and in ten seconds
there was such a fury of hail and wind
that the engineer deemed it best to stop
the locomotive. The hailstones were
simply great chunks of ice, many of
them three and four inches in diameter,
and of all shapes squares, cones, cubes,
The first stone that struck the train
broke a wine ow, and the flying glass
severely injured a lady on the nose,
makine a deer) cut. Five minutes after
ward there was not a whole light of glass
on the couth side of the train tho wliole
length of it. The windows in the Pull
man cars were of French plate, three-
eishths of an inch thick and double.
The hail broke both thicknesses, and tore
the curtains into shreds. The wooden
shatters, too, were smashed, and many
of the mirrors were broken. The
" dccklights " on the top of the cars
were also demolished. The dome of the
en trine was dented, as if it had been
pounded with a heavy weight, and the
wood-work on the south side of the cars
was ploughed as if some one had struck
it all over with sliding blows from
hammer. Durincr the continuance of
this terrible f nsilade, which lasted fully
twenty minutes, the excitement and fear
among tne passengers ran very nign.
Several ladies fainted, and one lady,
Mrs. Earle, wife of the Superintendent
of the Mountain division of tne road,
went into spasms, from which she did
not recover for over an honr after the
cessation of the storm. Several persons
sitting on the south side of the cars were
more or less injured about the head and
As soon as the storm abated a little,
the matting in the cars was hung up in
front of the windows, and the train
moved ahead, the drifted hail stones
proving an obstacle for some miles. At
the next station strips of tin were pro
cured and fastened over the windows the
entire length of the train. The cars
have been ran into the shop for repairs,
and the damage will amount, it is esti
mated, to several thousand dollars.
of Ice. The Whisky Frauds---How They were
A Washington dispatch says: H. T,
Taryan, Chief of the Division of Rev
enue Agents, has submitted to the Com
missioner of Internal Revenue an elabo
rate report upon the manner in which
the whisky frauds lately exposed were
perpetrated upon the government, and
the checks already established to prevent
a recurrence oi sncn frauds, ine re
port is very interesting, bnt too lengthy
for publication in fulL Mr. Yaryan de
scribes two modes in which the frauds
were perpetrated, both, of course, by
collusion of Unite! States officers, and
says: "In one of the two ways above
described all tne irauds recently oiscov
errd have been committed, and the gov
ern nent has lost three million dollars in
the last two years. The frauds have
mainly been carried on at four places,
namely, St Louis, Milwaukee, Chicago
and KvansviUe, and all at distilleries pro
ducing wbnt is called highwincs. llus
class of spirits does not require ' aging,
as does the sour mash whisky of Ken
tucky. It consequently does not excite
suspicion to find mghwines on tne mar
ket to-day that were produced yesterday.
This rapid transfer from the distillery
the market anords special facilities lor
tho re-use of stamps, "ffhicn is scarcely
possible with tho whiskies of Kentucky,
wined require a year s warenonrang De-
fore being ready for the market" The
report concludes as follows: "As
indication of the extent of the frauds
above described, I have the honor to re
port that documentary evidence is in pos
sesion of your office, which has war
ranted the seizure of twenty-threo dis
tilleries and thirty-six rectifying houses,
and implicated over fifty United States
Gaugers and Storekeepers. This evi
dence also shows the issue between De
cember 1, 1874, and May 1, 1875,
fraudulent spirits by the duplication
6,000 packages, containing probably
350,000 proof gallons, and by the aid
false ganging to the additional amount
of ' 450,000 proof gallons. This,
course, is but a small portion of
fraud actually committed, bnt in itself
indicates the loss of tax by the govern
ment in four months to an amouut
less than 8700,000."
Georgia is going to try her hand once
more at tea growing. Those who have
investigated the subject assure us that
the obstacle to the culture of
successfully in the Southern States
the want of experience, but chiefly
cheap labor. The tea tree of China has
been grown by several persons
Georgia, from the Piedmont region
the sea-coast. This shrub is a hardy
nrtrl vio-ormin evergreen. And thrives
well with us as it does in China and
Japan. It grows from "three to five
high, a near., compact, laurel-leaved
shrub, with pretty white flowers
sprinr. and is quite ornamental. It
perfectly hardy and will stand any
to the climate, and has been test
ed in Athens and many other localities
in Georgia. We are told it would be
easy matter for any family that has
home and a few feet of ground to pro
duce tlic'i- own tea, and a little to sell.
Its general introduction for home
would most likely lead to its production
for the people to learn beforo they
able to manufacture the article as we
it from China ; but it is said to be a very
good ten, and free from adulteration
be made by simply picking and drying
the leaves in the same manner that
leaves are cured. New York Bulletin.
Telegraphy in China.
China is to have an overland telegraph
between Amoy and Fuhchow, a distance
of about 1G0 miles. This will be the
first overland telegraph in that country,
but its construction has thus far been be
set with difficulties. When the Fonno
san trouble assumed a threatening con
dition, the Viceroy of the Province of
Fuhkicn thought this telegraph line
would bo advantageous, and accordingly
made a contract with the Great Northern
Telegraph Company, which lias cables
along the Chinese coast, for its construc
tion. No sooner, however, was the first
section of the line completed than the
natives discovered tnat the putting up of
the poles " interfered with the benign
inuuence of the Fung-shin of the dis
trict," and turning out by thousands
they uprooted the poles. This Btopped
the work, wherenpon the company ap
pealed to the authorities for protection,
and ultimately the intercession of the
foreign Ministers was invoked at Pekin.
This was successful, and now a new con
tract has been made, under which thor
ough protection is guaranteed. The
company are to get 154,500 for building
the line of 160 miles, and 830,000 annually
for its maintenance. Ni'W York
