I think tbfl pity of this life ia love:
Tor though my roHebnd, thrilling into lift,
Kissed by the love-beams of the glowing
Meet his fond gaze with her pure, tender
Filled with the rapture of a glad snrprise
That from his light her glory shall be won;
Yet, when into her very heart he sighs,
Behold ! she puts away her life and dies.
I think the pity of this life is love:
Because to me bat little joy has come
Of all that most I hoped weald make life's
For though the perfumed seasons come and
The spring birds warble, e'en the rivers flow
To meet some love to which their own doth
My bad of love hath bloomed for other eyes.
And I am left to sorrow and to sighs.
I think the pity of this life is love:
For from oar love we gather all life's pain,
And plaoe too oft oar hearts on earthly
"Where we wonld kneel but where, alas! we
Beneath a shadow ever past recall:
We seek for gold, when 'tis but dross that
Then if we may not turn our hearts above
I know the pity of this life is love.

REVIEW OF NEW B00K8.
"Alfred the Great," by Thomas Hughes,
II. P., published by James It. Osgood & Co.,
is the least successful of the works that have
proceeded from the pen of this deservedly
popular author. Mr. Hughes is a liberal, but
he beholds with ill-concealed anxiety the
rapid progress of democratic opinions in
England, and he sees much evil as likely to
result from the total overthrow of the old
order of things that promises to take place
in the not far distant future. He loves free
dom, but he also loves law, and, bad as mat
ters now are, he trembles lest they Bhall be
worse when the great change comes. In his
perplexity Mr. Hughes sighs for a king, and
finds bis ideal set forth in the language of
Carlyle: "We now come to the last form of
heroism, that which we call 'kingship.' The
commander over men, he to whose will our
wills are to be subordinated, and loyally sur
render themselves, and find their welfare in
so doing, may be reckoned as the most im
portant ef great men. Ia all sections of
English life the God-made king is needed; is
pressingly demanded in most, in some cannot
longer without peril as of conflagration be
dispensed with." Unfortunately for Mr.
Carlyle, Mr. Hughes, and some others who
are perplexed at the signs of the times, God
does not appear to be making kings of thid
sort just at present, but seems to expect that
the advantages of education, culture, rapid
means of intercommunication, and other
features of nineteenth century civilization
will ' enable each citizen to be in
a great measure his own king. It
wonld, perhaps, be a very convenient
thing to have a king of the Carlyle kind to
do all our governing for us, and relieve us of
all care and responsibility in the matter, but
if none such is forthcoming we must perforce
try and make out the best we can without.
Unluckily, too, it is impossible in this dege
nerate world to rely upon a succession of wise
and skilful rulers, for kingly lines have a
tendency to diminish in mental capaoity in
the same proportion that they become im
pressed with exaggerated ideas of their
own importance, and even where kings are
elective it is not always possible to get the
best man seated upon the throne, as we the
people of the United States have more than
once discovered to our cost. Mr. Hughes,
indeed, appears to be pretty well convinced
himself that his ideal king is not obtainable,
and in his concluding chapter he gives the
excellent advice for each citizen to accept
God as his king, and to live virtuously and
uprightly in nis sight. If Mr.
Hughes can only persuade every
citizen to do this, all farther con
troversy about the best form of
government may well be dis
poned with. With regard to
the nominal theme of the work before us, we
may say that the events of Alfred s life are
set forth in very readable shape, and it is
shown how he laid broad and deep the foun
dations of good government in England. The
book is strongly colored by the religious and
political opinions of the author, which on this
side, of the Atlantic will not be likely to
diminish its popularity, but we cannot help
thinking that the work would have been more
valuable as well as more interesting if Mr.
Hughes had been less anxious to draw a moral
from his tale. For. sale in this city by Clax
ton, Remsen fc Ilaffelfinger.
"Ralph the Heir," by Anthony Troliope
is distinguished by the usual plaoid style and
the usual minute dissection of very common
place characters that find favor with so many
readers. The story is perhaps a trifle more
ingenious in the conduct of its plot than is
usual with Mr. Troliope, while the moral en
forced ia certainly salutary. Published by
Harper & Brothers and for sale by Claxton,
Hemsen fc Haffelnng6r.
'The American Cardinal," published by
Dodd & Mead, is a Btory of an American who
was converted to the faith of Home, and, after
rising to the dignity of Cardinal, wished to
change his religion again, and was in conse
quence made the victim of various Jesuitical
plots. As an attack upon the Church of
Home the novel is too weak both in idea and
execution to accomplish a great deal, while
its essential vulgarity of style will scarcely
make it popular outside of kitchen an 1 sUh'e
circles, where it may possibly be read to be
anathematized. For sale by Claxton, Reuiaen
"'Why did he Dot Die?" from the German
of Ad. Von Volokhanseu, is an attractive addi
tion to the excellent list of translations from
the German by Mrs. A. L. Winter which hav
obtained eo much and such well-deserved
popularity during the past few years. The
present Btory is charmiDg in its graceful sim
plicity, and in the fine art with which the
various characters are sketched and the
lights and shadows are contrasted. Pub-
ished by J. B. Lippinoott k Co.
"Castles in the Air, and other Phanta
sies," is the title of a book of brief sketches
and' essays by Barry Gray, which has just
been issued by Hurd & Houghton. Most if
not all of these sketches have appeared in
various newspapers and magazines, where
they have found favor with the public, and
Collected in a neat volume, their quiet humor
and graceful fancy will commend them to the
summer readers who ask that their literary
food shall not be of too heavy a kind while
the -hot weather lasts. For sale by Porter &
"The Two Guardians" is the latest issue
of the complete edition of Miss Yonge's
novels now in course of publication by D.
Appleton & Co. ' It is a pleasing Btory of
home life, and will repay a perusal. For sale
by Porter & Coates.
"The Happiness of Heaven," by a father
of the Society of Jesus, published by John
Murphy & Co., is an eloquent description of
the condition of the blessed in heaven, in
which the promises of Scripture are explained
and set forth by means of familiar illustra
tions and references to the writings of the
fathers of the Church. There is nothing in
the work calculated to offend the prejudices
of non-Catholics, and it may be read with in
terest and profit by Christians of all shades of
belief. For sale in this city by Hardy & Ma-
oney, No. 72G Sansom street.

TIIE TIGUBORNE TRIAL.
A Slight Hitch In the Testimony.
The London correspondent of the New
York Times, writing under date of May 27,
says: The Tichborne case has been going on
smoothly till Thursday, when one of the wit
nesses for the claimant broke down under
cross-examination. On the previous day he
pleaded illness, and was released from the
witness box. When he afterward returned
there he was at first very cool and collected,
He had been a trooper in the Carabineers,
and Rogers' servant when he was an officer in
that regiment; and he was positive enough
as to the claimant being his old master.
notwithstanding his greatly increased bulk
and other changes in appearance. The oppos
ing counsel pressed him very hard as to
whether be had been getting up the case for
the claimant, coaching him in his evidence.
and bringing people to swear to his identity;
and although he would admit nothing, he
was equally resolute in denying nothing. He
would not say he had not declared that the
claimant was an impostor, and took refuge
in a monotonous repetition of "I don't re
member," "I forget one way or another,
Of course the claimant is not responsible for
finch conduct, and it certainly does not lol
low that the claim is fraudulent just because
this witness is a drunken, disreputable fellow,
evidently determined to make a good thing
out ox his "old master," in one way or
another. I he claim is. therefore, baseless.
Still as the onus of proof lies on the
claimant, all sorts of wild stories are now
afloat in regard to this suit. One is that the
claimant is really Mr Roger, but that hisznar
rative of his adventures is, in a large degree,
a fabrication, in order to conceal the faot that
he committed a murder in South America,
ior wnicn ue migni biiii ae called to account.
Again it is rumored that the counsel for the
actual possessor of the baronetcy and estates
is prepared to prove that the claimant is
HortoD, a butcher, on the evidence of
Hortona sister herself. If this happens,
there will bo a strange conflict of testimony,
a sister swearing to a brother and an old lady
Bwearing to a son, and one or other being
Extbaordisabt Vitality ofObganio Gebms.
One of the most curious faots in connection
with chemical research is the remarkable vita
lity of the lower organisms in nature. In
vegetable subjects, for instance, vitality may
lie dormant for a period which is almost in
conceivable. Stramonium Beeda, aeeording
to Duhamel, can develop after remaining
twenty-five years under ground. Friewald
observed the generation of melon seed after
they had been kept more than forty years.
Pliny goes bo far as to say that corn grew
after it had been kept a hundred years.
And there seems no reason to doubt
the fact, for Desmoulins obtained
plants from seeds found in a Roman tomb of
the third or fourth century. Moreover,
it is well known that corn found in some of
the tombs of ancient Egypt has germinated
and grown to perfection; and the result of the
experiment of sowing some of this mummied
corn in this country has been the production
of new ears larger and more proline than
those of our modem wheat. A squill-bulb,
too, found in the hands of a mummy, has,
when planted at the present day and in this
country, grown and blossomed as readily as
the last year a byaointh-bulb from Holland,
which flowers in our windows every spring.
