BY ALGERNON CHARLES SWINBURNE. Before the beginning of yenrs There came to the making of man Time, with a ((III of tears; Uriel', with a glass that ran ; Pleasure, with pain for leaven ; Summer, with flowers Hint fell ; Hemembrance fallen from heaven And madness risen from hell ; Strength without hands to smite; Love that endures for a breath ; Right, the shadow of light, And life, the shadow of death. And the high gods took in hand Fire, and the fulling of tears. And a measure of sliding sund From under the feet of the years ; And froth and drift of the Bea, And dust of the laboring earth, And bodies of things to bo In the houses of death and of birth ; And wrought with weepingand laughter, And fashioned with loathing ond love, With life before and after. And dcatli beneath and nbovc, For a day and night and a morrow, That hiestrength might endure for as With travail and heavy sorrow, spun, i jiu iiuiv apirit ui uinu. From tho winds of the north and south, They gathered us unto strife; They breathed upon his mouth, They filled his body with life ; Kye sight and speech they wrought For the veils of the soul therein, A time for labor and thought, A time to serve and to sin ; They gave him light In his ways, And love, and space for delight, And beauty, and length of days. And nighl, and sleep in tho night His speech Is a burning fire: W ith his lips he travaileth ; In his heart is a blind desire. In his eyes fereknowledgo of death ; He weaves and is clothed with derision; Sows and ahull not reap: His life is a watch or a vision Between a sleep and a sleep. From Miss Martineau's Recollections. Lord Byron and Lady Byron. It was lier firm belief tliat it was wrong for her to live with him any long er, though the conduct which led to this belief oho kept secret irom the world ; but in spite cf nil, in spite of inisrepreseutation and abuse and calum ny, she loved him stiil. She loved him to tho hist with a lovo that wns not in his power to destroy. She gloried in hia fame, and she would not interfere between him and tho public who adored him, any more than she would admit the public to judge between him and her. As wo have said, her love endurded to the last. It wns her fortune which gave him the mean of pursuing his mode of life abroad. lie spent the utmost hi!' ling ot her property that the law gave him while ho Jived; and he left away from her every shilling that ho could de prive her of by his will; nud what the course of life wns, which ho thus sup ported, ho himself has left on record. Yet, after all this, the interview which she had with hia servant after his death shows what a depth of passion lay con cealed under the calm surface of her re serve. It will be re t n em be red that when IJvioti knew himself to be dying he call ed" to his nvtn Fletcher, and desired him to "go to Lady Uyron and ." Hero his utterance became unintelligible, till he said: You will tell her this; and Fletcher was obliged to reply, "I have not heard ono syllable that you have been saying.' "Good God!" exclaimed the dying man; but it was too late for more, Fletcher did "go to Lady Hyron ;" but during the whole interview she walked up and down the room, trying to stifle her sobs, and obtain power to ask the questions which were surging in her heart. She could not speak, and he was obliged to leave her. A Sprague Story. Since Iihode Island'. Boanerges began to thunder bo vociferously, a good story has come out in relation to his marriage. It seems that JJisliop Clark wns summon ed to follow hiin to Washington, and there wait his pleasure before tying the matrimonial knot F,oally, tho great event was consummated, and without re ceiving any fee the good Bishop returned to his labors. Ho w.s ot course some what surprised that he was not at least reimbursed tor his expeiMe of travel and residence at the Capitol. The story finally leaked out, wbeu Mr. Sprague at once sent to the Bishop a check for 91000. This tho Bishop refused, on the ground that it was too much. "Oh, no," said the agent, "this is probably what he would havt giveu you if he had thought anything about it at tho time, and he will be glad when be learns that I bav takoa care of the matter." From the Toledo Blade. NASBY. The Patriots of the Corners, in Humble Imitation of the Late President, attempt to Circumvent the African—The Result of their Little Maneuver. CONFEDRIT X ROADS. (Wich in the Slait OF Kebtucky.) April 16. 1869. The speech made by Ilia Kx-eggslcney, A. Johnson, to the nigger uv Nashville, struck me er. bein a stroke tiv policy wich we ought by nil means to imitate. I hev bin long uv the opinion that there nint no earthly yoose in standing in front uv the car uv progress that we must either get onto it or be smashed. I aed e much io Deekiin l'ogram and Elder Pennibackcr, and they yielded a reluc tant assent. "The nigger is going to vote anvhow," remarkt I, "and hedu't we better gobble ottr share uv them votes than to hev cm nil agin ns?" I sejested a meelin, to be held at the church, to wich our colored brelherin sliood be all invited, and at wich the hatchet shootl be forever berried a sort uv politikle lovefenst, in which there shood le ft sort of niinglin, a subsidin, a rttunin together, ee it were. Deck in l'o gram entered into the skeem with con siderable energy, after he comprehended it ; and Bascom, with a biznis sngasity that makes him one uv the great linan cecrs, favored it, remnrkin that any move ment wich wood transform men into Demokrals must be advantcjus to him. I entered upon my work with more than my yoosual energy. I dekorated the church with mottoes and transpar encies. I bed it swept out. Even sum ot tho mottoes wnz rutlier high-scented for the Deekin, but I soothed him by ashooriu him that they wuz only tor (fleck, and that there wuzn't tKithin' more intended by em than there is yoo sually in parly plutforms. I instructed the Deekin and the others duly e to wat they must do to make it a perfect success.' They must, I told em, not only be coijal to the niggers there selves, but their wives, nud sons and daughters must be likewise. The Elhio pans must be made to understand that wo WU in earnest ; that tliey wits', to be reely counted in cz humans, nn j bv uz. "We must," I leinaikt, "cut under the Ablishnirits." Every thing, succeeded beyond my wildest hopes. The white inhabitant's uv the Coiners wuss all there, and at least two-thirds of tJie niggers. I lied an involuntary shudder er. I notist Joe Bigler anil Pollock mavsliallin the nig gers, but I bed hopes, ez the ineetin wuz called for the purpose of recugnizin their rites, that they would let it go ofT with out interrupshen. I wuz nppintcd Chairman, uv course, and the new Assessor, wich is a nigger, wuz made Viee-l'resider.t. I opened with a tribute to the charac ter and qualities uv our Afrikin brethren. I ashoored em that I lied the highest respect for cm, individooally and collec tively, and that, so far ez I wuz con cerned, I wuz prepared to receive em on terms uv per feck eknality in tvery thing. "I may hev had prejeodises," I remarked ; "I may hev allowed them prejoodises to carry mo beyond the bounds uv rite at times; but, thank Heaven, them prejoo dises is cured. I kin take this worthy man by the hand (at wich pint I took the Assessor by the hand and shook it, tho effeck uv wich tabloo, however, wuz mai led by his wipin his hand keerfully ostentashusly on his breeches ez soon ez I let go uv it, at wich the niggers tit tered.) I took him by the hand, and in doin it I wish to be understood ez lakiii the entire Afrikin race by the hand. Mv sole goes out in love toward all uv em.5' Deekin Pogram rumarkt that he cood indorse all that tho Cheennan lied sed. lie felt that the time lied come when color thood not bo considered. "Bless tho Lord," "sed the Deekin. "I kin say that I ook upon adult niggers rz broth ers, the younger ones ez children. Bless tho Lord, I kin recognize in the Afrikin my tkal, and insist that they shel be, from this time henceforth and forever, on precisely the same footin we stand onto, 'roin this time I shel know no whi'e, no black only men and women. The colored yuth shel be to me ez the white youth. Bless the Lotd." Elder l'cnnibacker, Issakei Gavitt and Bascon), shouted "Amen," and tho Dee kin wuz about to proceed, but he didn't. Joe Bigler jumped opto the platform and" cnibruein the Deekin, vociferously re markt .that this wuz the beginiiin uv a new era.

It was in thedavsof ourgrandmotbers, when there were brick ovens in the land. that Mr. Hubbard bought his house; and bought it very much against his wife's will. It was a lonely house and reported to be haunted. It was next to a grave yard, which, though unused, was not cheerful, and which had likewise the rej utation ot a ghost. However, Mr. Hubbard did not believe in ghosts, and was too cueertul to be depressed by warnings, and never intended to be lonely. "Mrs. Ilnbbard," he said, when his wife shook her head over the nurchase. "I got it cheap, and it is a good one. You will like it when you get there. If you don't, why then talk." ho the house wns bought, and into it the family went. There wa scarcely a chance tor a ghost to show his face amid such a family of boys nnd girls. Mr. nnd Mrs. Hubbaid counted ten ot them, in. noisy ones. Having once expostulated and spoken out her mind as to the house, Mrs. Hub bard gave up the point. She scrubbed ni.d scoured, tacked down carpets, and put up" curtains, and owned that the place was pretty. As not a ghost np pcarcd for a week, she made up her mind that, there were no such inhabitants; she even began not to mind the tombstones. So the house got to rights at last, and baking day came about. In the press of business, they had a great deal of baker's bread, ana were now tired of it. Mrs. Hubbard never enjoyed setting a batch of b'ead to rise as she did that which was to be eaten for the first time in the new house. "For I can not get up an appetite for stuff that nobody knows who had the making of," said Mrs. Hubbard, "and putty and uliimy besides." So into the oven went the bread, and out it came at the proper time, even nnd brown and beautinil as loves could be. Mrs. Hubbard turned them up on their sides as she drew them forth, and they stood in t tie long bread tray, glorious proof's of her skill and the excellence of the oven, when Tommy Hubbard bound ed in. Tommy was four ; nnd when at that ago we are prcne to believe that anything will benr our weight. Tom my, therefore," anxious to inspect the newly-made bread, swung himself off his feci by clutching the edge ot tho bread tray, and over it came, loaves and Tom my and all. Mrs. Hubbard flew to the rescue and picked np the loaves. All were dusted and put in the tray again but one. They lay bottom upwards under the table. "A bothering child, to give me so much trouble !" she suid, as she crawled under the table to get it. "A O ah dear, dear, dear, dear oh rny " And there on the floor sat Mrs. Niib batd, screaming, wringing her hands and shaking her head. Tho children scream ed in concert. Mr. Hnbbard rushed in from the garden, where he was at work. "What's the matter, mother?" he gasped. "Mrs. Hnbbard pointed to the bottom of the loaf lying in her lap.". "Look there and see !" she said, "It is a warning, William ; I am going to be taken from them all." And he looked ; and be saw a death's heat' and cross-bones, as plainly engrav ed as I hey possibly could be, "It is an accident," said Mr. Hnbbard. "Such queer pranks do come, you know." ' But Mrs. Hubbard was In "a troubled state ot mind, as was but natural. "The stories about the haunted house were true," she said ; "aud the spirits have marked tho loaf. I am afraid it is a warning." ' And the loaf was put aside, for even Mr. Hubbard did uot dare eat any of it. Mrs. Hnbbard got over her fright nt nst, but the news of the awfullyimarked loaf spread through It , and the peo ple came to Hubbard's all the week to look at it. It wns a death's head and cross-bones certainly ; every one saw that at a glance, but ns to its meaning, people diflered. Some believed that it was a warning of approaching death some thought that the spirits wanted to frighten the Hubbard away, and get possession of the house again, all to them- selves. This latter supposition inspired Mrs, Hubbard with conrnge ; finally be ing a brave woman, she adopted tho be- nei, nnn wnen another baking day arriv ed, put her loavea into the oven once more, prepared for croas-bones, nnd not to be frightened by them. The loaves baked as before. They came out brown and crusty ns Mrs. Hubbard turned each in her hands There w as no cross-bones visible, but on the last were sundry char acters or letters. What, no one could tell, until there dropped in tor achat, a certain printer of the neighborhood, nc-ciiHloni'-d to reading things back war 1. "By George," said he, "that is curious. That it curious r e-s-ti-r-g-am rcsurgam; that is what is on the loaf resttrgam." iv is wai tney put on tombs, isn't it ? asked poor Mrs. Hubbard faintly. "Well, yes," said Mr. Hubbard, being obliged to admit it. "But it is not so bad as cross-liones and skulls." "Mrs. Hubbard shook her head. "It's even tolemner," said the little woman, who was not as good a Linguist as bread-maker. "1 feel confident, Wil liarn, that I shall soon be restirgamed, and what w ill these dear children do then ?" And now that the second leaf was be fore her eyes, marked even more awfullv than the first, Mrs. Hubbard grew really pale ami thin, and lost her cheerfulness. "I have a presentiment " she said over and over again, "that third baking will decide who the warning belongs to, I be lieve it is meant fur me, and time will show. Don't you see how thin I am grow ing ?" And though Mr. Hubbard laughed, he also began to le troubled. The third baking day was one of gloom. Solemn ly, as at a f.meral, the family assembled to assist in the draving. Five loaves came out markless ; but one remained. Mrs. Hubbard's hand trembled ; but she drew it forth ; she laid it on the tray : she turned it softly about. At last she exposed the lower surfa-ce. On it were letters printed backward plain enough to read this time, and arranged thus : -Died April tod, lamented bv her large family.' "It is mt," cried Mrs. Hnbbard. "I am to go to-morrow. This is the first. I do feel faint. Yes. I do. It is awful. and so sudden."' And Mrs. Hubbard fainted away in the arms of the most terrified of men and hnsbands. The children screamed, the cat mew ed, the dog barked. The oldest boy ran for the doctor. People flocked to the Hubbards. The loat was examined. Yes, there was Mrs. Hubbard's warning her call to quit this world. She lay in bed, bidding good bye to to her family and friends, her strength going fast. She read her Bible, and tried uot to grieve too much. The clergymen prayed with her. Nobody doubted her end was nt hand, for people were very superstitious in those days. They had been np all night with good .Mrs. Hubbard, and dawn wa3 breaking. and with it she must go; when, clatter ing over the rond and up to the door came a horse, and on the horse came a man wto alighted. He rattled the knocker nnd rushed iu. Up the stairs he went to Mrs. Hubbard's room, and bolted into it. Everv one stared nt him ns bo took off his iiat. 'Pardinsr," said he, breathlessly. "I heard Mrs. Hubbard was a dying and she'd warnings on her bakings. I came over to explain. Yon see I was sexton of the church here a few years ago, and 1 know all about it. 1 ou need t die for fear just yet. Mrs. Hubbard, for it is neither spirits nor devils about ; nor yet wnrnius. What marks the loaves is old Mis. Pinkie's tombstone. I took it for an oven-bottom, seeing there were no survivors, nnd bricks were dear. The last folks before yon didn't g'jt them printed off on their loaves, because they used tins ; and we got used to the marks ourselves. Uross-bones ond skulls we put tip with, and never thought of car ing for the resurgum. So you see how it is, and 1 am sorry you ve been scared, Nobody said a word, llic minister shut his book. The doctor walked tip to the window. There was a deadly si lence. Mrs. Hubbard sat tip in bed. "William," said she, to her husband, "the first thing you do, get a new bot tom to that oven." And the tone assured the assemblage of anxious friends that Mrs. Hubbard was not going to die just yet. indeed, she came down the very next day. And when the oven had been re constructed, the nrst tiling she did was to eive invitations for a large tea-drink ing, on which occasion the loaves came out light. From the New Orleans Picayune. A Wicked Prank? Wednesday night quite a fashionable wedding wan celebrated in the Fourth District. The bride was pretty, as all ftcwly. married ladies are, and the groom has the glass of fashion and the mould of form. A number of invited guests lent garce and beauty to the occasiou, and hearty congratulations testified to the good wishes of many friends for tbehap piness of the newly wedded pair. But the hours waned rapidly, and the time for retireing came at last. The bride vm led bv Tatiorhinir bridesmaids UD to her chamber door.

The strange lady nttered a low, mock ing laugh. The scene was getting inter esting to the last degree.

The mysteries and the miseries, the - ro mances and the realities of city life are strangely mixed up with haunted houses and dark closets ; and who can fathom the secrets which these conceal ? Our own city, which has its haunted houses and dark closets, has also had for many years its shadow. This shadow was once fair and light some shadow ; a rosy, a eirlihh shadow: all neatness and grace. Then it was ' a somber shadow, somewhat thin and care worn. Latterly it has been a errim and gaunt shadow, clad in ragged, brown garments, a snaaow indeed. The story of this shadow is not a tale of enchantment. It is a tale of infatua tion. It is one of the strangest senti mcntalicms on record. About twenty years ago there was a young girl of respectable connections, who taught in one of our most respec table Rchools. She wns not a beauty, but bIio had a sweet, intelligent face, and pleasant j cultivated manners. There was a prospect before her of a useful and tappy carrer. At this early period, however, she chanced to meet a well known citizen of Louisville, a gentleman who was then, and has been ever since highly CBteeincd among a large circle ot friends. It is said, and it is believed, that sbc met this gentleman on one occa sion ouly at an evening party of young people. She conceived at once a violent passion for hiin, and this passion soon as sumed the form of a monomania. The unfortunate girl conceived that tho ob ject of her sudden and violent infatua tion had done her n great wrong, and troth that day to this she has dogged bis footsteps with the blind presistoaee of lunacy. Year in and year out, month after .month, and day atter day she baa pursued him like his own shadow, follow, ing from street to street, from house to bouse, from place to place. Once she endeavored to take bis life ; but for many years she has been but a silent spectre, growing more and more haggard, more ami more untidy, more and more watch ful and pertinacious. She is known to all the town. There Is hardly a dog that has not seen her and wondered at . her strange movements. There is hardly a child that has uot been frightened by her ghostly wnys, There is hardly a com pany that has not discussed ber singula antecedents, and It would be impossible to arrive at any definite opinioaeoDoern. ing her, She was trrainged before toe Cily Court on a charge of disonterlv eettdtiet,, but on a hearing of the-ease- tho Jndgr discharged her, taking bea individual bound, No one believes that there iaani barm in ber; but ftoue doubts. that she Is a lunatic.
