A ROMANCE OF THE MAMMOTH CAVE.
REMARKS TO SCHOOL GIRLS.
It is tima to return to the poor wandering lovers
in tho -.1 mammotii cave without any prospect of
finding their way out. They pursued the course of
the stream which meandered from the wall where
Hervey first discovered its course, into plains ol
seme extent, then down rugged declivities, difficult
nuJ hazardous. Ilervoy felt alarmed at going
down si far, and finding no avenue through winch
to rutm-ii to the mouth of tho cave. At length they
fi and tho stroam branching in various directions,
t.ftcr cetiing over several small branches, they
followed one which was more broad and shallow
than t!.e rest, which swept away into nn open
f y.ico, thuii the walla again approached each other
and re.itrnclcd over tho stream, which seemed to
bo the entrance of a new npartment. Now, 6aid
Ici v;y if we go in hero with the etrcam wo may
l'nd u: elegant apartment, or else we-must cross
tho stream hero and keep on the main course both
.f ,. hiob seem alike doubtful. "Let us go in hero"
li t Z'.lpa "I am tired of following that stream
T want to fee Mrs. Graham." "Well then dear
Zil -.a trust tho strength of my arm and tho sacred-r:os-
of my love, and I will carry you across this
titream, the water is shallow, and I seo no way to
tr-,t r.long dry shod." "0 no Ilervcy, I cannot let
von carry me, you arj tired now. You have been
carrying thoso thick shawls all this time. I will
walk through this clear water it will cool and ro
licvo my feet, for thoy are weary, weary," so say-
in; she stcpt briskly on before. "It is not deep
enuigti to drown me, is it Ilcrvey T "It may bo
coir.o deeper" said Ilervy. Tho darkness before
l.cr was appalling. Ilervcy hastening ou after her
and holding up tho the glimmering lantern, caught
gently hold of her arm, and after walking some
distance in a stooping posture, they passod the
strain it and came into nti npartmont which was
i.early sqnaro and had a lofty ceiling. Zilpa
c:illoi for Mrs. Graham, and inquired several times
if she wcro not at home. By this Ilcrvey know
that her mind was still wandering, and his heart
sank withiu him. Ho felt that she was exhausted
with fatigue, for though no sun, moon or stars
marked to thorn the revolutions of time, by count
ing the hours on his watch, ho knew that two
days had elapsed sinco they entered the cave. Tho
siiiall piece of bridal cake, that Zilpa had in her
rockot, was all tho sustenance thoy had except
tho clear water from the stream, which Ilervcy
dippel up with the silver cup. Ho made haste to
eprcad tho shawls, and desired her to rest. Sho
immediately fell asleep, then ho commenced to"
connoitoring'the apartment. Ho soon found that
it contained many curious things. The roof was
hury; with long points like icicles, and their con.
tinual dropping formed stalagmites below, till they
had grown to that size to resemble peoplo assem
bled in tho room, towards one end was a lofty
canopy raised over a somewhat lower elevation
which hero somo resemblance to a bed, on this sat
four figures resembling human forms in the out
line, but so muffled that ho could judge but little
concerning them. A little square table or altar Btood
between them, and upon it lay a number of littlo
sacks tightly sewed up, so as to resomble little pil
lows. These ho mado haste to explore Ho found
they contained a kind of nuts resembling a ground
nut, in a state of perfect preservation. Feeling
as he did pressing calls of hunger, theso were
welcome prize. Ho took ono of them and returned
towards tho place where he had left Zilpa sleeping,
but not till he had found among tho various con
tents of the table something a little like a bottle
linding Zilpa still sleeping he sat down, and watch
ing her relieved his hunger by feasting ou tho
ne A'-found treasure, Then with his pen-knifo he
tniceeoled in opening tho other artielo he raised
it to his lips, tho tasto was like wine, tho finest
juke of tho prtipo. Ho ventured to drink it as
wine and wine it was of the finest quality, unfer
uicuted juico of tho rnre.
When Zilpa awoko ho presented her these treas
ures. He hoped after a season of rest to find that
reason l.ad resumed her throne on which she had
su long wandered. Sho was much refreshed by
iiing the nuts and drinking the wine. Sho glan.
cod around upon tho immuvabla figures, as she
sat upon htr bed of shawls. Sho laid to Ilcrvey
"havo tUey a large party." She heard the rever
beration of their own voices and thought it was
the ooiivivality of iho party, the conceived was
assembled in tho hall. Jumping up sho says,
"Lot us join thcin." Nio walked in among the
dumb usscuibly and saiJ, "how glad I am to see
you Indies and gentlemen. Do you know Mrs
"Morgan? Show mo to her, please. I am longing
to seo her. No answer did theso curious pedestals
make to her inquiries, but still tho reverberation
in the spacious apartment sho took for their con
vorsatioiu and music. Ilervcy loaded her up to
. v hero tho four figures sit with the table, said,
these are more particularly our friends. Hero
it wncrc i uuna our reireshmonts. She said to
them, "how kind yon are. Your things are very
.i.ico... AYhero is Mrs. GrahumJ" No answer
being iiado, Horvey proceeded to investigate who
and what thoy were. Brushing o. kind of down
or dust ho lifted tho full covering from their heads
he found tho human figures entire, very rigid
. and apparently like stone. They were wrapt with
something that adhered so closely as to leave the
, full impression of all their features and forms of
' tho head, nck, breast and arms. From their waist
d.itrn tii'v had on a kind of shirt which was also
ri,;id, un'i unbending. Ode of each ccuple had on
,. x : t el he'.i.iet or eurui-ct, this was also a com
plete pt i'V.tion, he concluded they were wen
' somo distinction, and the others being a little
smaller and more delicately made ho thought might
' be then- wives, io he denominated them. It now
only remained to them to determine whether they
would load tlieuifche with all the saeks of nuts

and bottles of wine, as they must speed their way!
in search of an avenue that might lead them back
to the world above them. Tho stream flowed
through one corner u the room whloh they named'
the hall of refreshments. . They left it a little rich
er than they came, for they had found what would
sustain tber lives a little longer.
By wading the stream in the same way In which
they crossed, and kept down the main branch
which gradually descended and bore to the right.
Sometimes they fallowed the meanderings of the
branching streams a distanco and then returned
fearing to loose themselves in these labyrinths too
far, then in their desperation follow on the main
stream, thinking it might find its outlot at longth
Hi a way that would lead again to the world. . Her
voy's state of mind; was anything out easy, but
Zilpa was cheerful aud (lid not comprehend tho
extent of their danger. In the continued hope of
finding their ' way back they kept watch of the
opposite bank, but no oponing could they see.
One day or night, it matters not which, they
saw an archway over the stream, as thsy approach
ed it, thoy thought it a perfect bridge and with
joy began to cross, but in the middle was a large
opening, over which Ilervcy leaped with great
energy, then in alarm for Zilpa he begged her to
wait till he could render her aid, but while he
was speaking she leaped ovor with the agility of
a cricket, than which she had no more fear. They
soon discovered a small defile through which tbey
passed down n short descent and came into a lofty
and most beautiful room. The brilliant spar shone
like millions sf sparkling diamonds, had they but
sufficient moans to illuminate it, no language could
describe its richness and beauty. The stalagmites
at the bottom, had incroasod by the droppings
from above until they united with thoir parent
spires which were continually pushing out from
the high coiling above. The various forms of
beauty here were indescribable. A forest of tall
tree?, their branches interlacing with fruits and
flowers of varieties ol tonne, lestooned with vines
and grapes all of the purost whitonoes, made of
this chrystaline material. They named this place
of nameless beauty, the forest hall. They had no
alternative but to follow down the stream. At
longth they found a chain of apartments commu
nicating with each other. They passed through
narrow passages and gloomy abodes of dust and
silence, no star of hope yet appearing to guide them
home. Home was becoming a dim and indistinct
thought to Ilervcy. The thought of his mother's
grief came over his heart like the pall of death.
As they came to the end of this chain of caverns
some solid pillars of spar, of t sombre color stood
as everlastiug monuments of horror, for the floor
was covered with human bones, mouldy, and moul
dering to dust. Zilpa took but an indistinct viow
of the place. Ilcrvey was forced to the conclusion
that there was mercy in the, to him, mournful
stroke that partially deprived her of reason. Simi.
lar had been his thoughts when she leaped the
opening on the bridge She was indifforent to all
the danger and fatigues, cheerful and happy, say.
ing often, how delightful it is to be with you Her
voy but I fear Mrs. Graham will wait.
Soon after they returned to the main stream it
widened and roared in its descent, they camo to a
kind of embankment. The stroam fell down and
was lost to their view. They went down a steep
descent, and traveled on a mile or two. Uervey
wondered where he could procuro another draught
of water for Zilpa. They found a kind of road
but they could not toll where it commenced its
bearing was so "at right angles with their gen'
cral course, that thoy feared (o take thoir back
track, they heard a rumbling noise which gave
Ilervoy great alarm and the further they went on
to the right the louder the sound was until a jar
was perceptible under their feet. Poor Ilervoy
was an object of compassion worn with fatigue of
carrying the load of shawls and their food nnj
drink, which was now nearly exhausted, with
watching and fasting. Seeing Zilpa unmoved
Thank Heaven that she knows not the horrors that
surround her.
The sound of his voice ecliocd and ro-echned
along the vaults. Then came back a sound as if
in answer. Holloa. lie listened, it was repeated.
Holloa. It was a human voice. They went on.
The rumbling and trembling of the earth increas
ing. They heard singing. It was loud as thun
der. But still it was singing, although it surpris
ed Ilcrvey, he felt a secret joy. It was a familiar
tune that he had heard in dear Kentucky. The
way narrowed just there, and they camo up to
something, applying tho lantern, they saw it was
a mnn. He started to run, then suddenly stop
ping, he cried "who dar t who dur ?" Said Uervey,
Heavens, it is Tom's voice. Tom, in the name of
thunder how came you here under ground ? Good
massa, Master Hervey is it you f Pen I fore ye
here, Miss Zilpa too, falling down and soiling Her
vey by the feet. "I neber thought you come here,'
on do underground railroad. What do you mean
Tom, how camo you bore? Why I was comen on
de underground railroad eartin. I was walking
back from de station out dar, and calling for de
oder train for to couie up. Sure enough the train
did come up, and a queer looking train it was. It
was not very long for seldom had they many pas
sengers, it was very narrow, the passengers sat
one behind the other, tho reason of this may be
imagined, and will be explained hereafter. . The
first question Hervey asked the conductor was(
what was the noise they heard, and what caused
the trembling of the ground t "It is the roar of
the Niagara sir. We are near it now. We will
soon bo past it. There is no danger. Will you
and the lady take a seat?
AFRICAN DISCOVERIES.
Discoveries are daily making in regions beyond
what was denominated the frontier. Among oth
ors, travelers have arrived from tho Zulu county. In
somo places it was furtiln nnd beautiful, with vegetation
luxuriant ; in others the land was barren
with not a tree to bo seen for miles. The chief
food of the inhabitants is milk, rice and sweet
potatoes.
In one place a party of travelers came to tho
kraal of one of the principal Zulu chiefs styled by
the natives En Comm. Hero they were hospita
bly entertained for four dsvs. Cortan. the chiol
rejoiced in the possession of tventy uivti, all of
wnora were aauy dismissed to the labors ol the
field, except one favorite dark beauty, who seemed
exei.ipt from this unfeminine occupation. A cup
bearer, too, ugurcd at the lexuvo board, reminding
the travelers of Pharaoh and the kings of anci
ent times, a tall, stalwart native, whore head was
bound with a large blue shawl, in Oriental style

cups were so beautifully glazed and of such curl

SONG OF THE BROOK.
BY ALFRED TENNYSON.
I oome from haunts of coot and hern,
' I make a sudden sally
. And sparkle out among the fern,
To bicker down a valley.
By thirty hills I hurry down,
Or slip betwoen the ridges,
By twenty thorps, a little town,
And half a hundred bride.es.
Till last by Philip's farm I flow
To join the brimming river,
For nion may come and men may go,
But I go on forever.
I clatter over stony ways,
In little'sharps and trebles,
I bubble into eddying bays,
I babble on the pebbles.
With many a curve my banks I fret ;
By many a field and fallow,
And many a fairy foreland set
With'willow weed and mallow.
I clatter, clatter, as I flow
To join the brimming river,
For men may ccmo and men may go,
But I go on forover.
I wind about, and in and out,
With here a blossom sailing,
And here and there a lusty trout,
And here and there a grayling.
And bore and there a foaming flake
Upon me, as I travel
With many a silvery waterbreak
Above the golden gravel,
And draw them all along, and flow
To join the brimming river,
For men may come and men may go,
But I go on forever.
I steal by lawns and grassy plots,
I slide by hazel covers ;
I move the sweet forget-mo-nots
That grow for happy lovers.
I slip.I slido, I gloom, I glance,
Among my skimming swallows,
I make the netted sunbeam dance
Against my sandy shallows.
I murmur under moon and stars
In brambly wildernesses ;
I linger by my shingly bars ;
I loiter round my cresses ;
And out again I curve and flow
To join tho brimming river ;
For men may come and men may go,
But I go on forever.
MORAL COURAGE.
a. rare virtue, nnu great as it is rare. v e re
member when we thought tho courage of the field
everything; the charge the word of command
high sounding and clear amid he battle's fury
the clash of arms, tho roar of tho artilcry, the
thrill of the bugle's note, as with more than magic
A l.'.A .1... .) ll r . .
buuiiu h uiw, wiu ouiuior uiifv nu ior victory the
banner ot your country in front, planted there to
stand amid victory oi defeat. Oh ! how voun?
Hearts beat to be actors in such a seeno ; calling it
glorious to mingle in, and fighting nobly, to lie
uown aim uie.
But what is the courage of the battle-field com
pared with the moral courage of every day life !
Stand alone, see friends scowl j hear distrust speak
its foul suspicion ; watch enemies take advantage
of the occasion, laboring to destroy ; who would
not rather encounter the shock of a hundred
battle-fields, and leud a forlorn hope in search, thon
to bear and brave theso things. Why, the one is
as tli summer brcezo on tin ocean to winter's
stormiest blast. The common spirit may summon
courage to piny the soldier woll. Use quickly fits
in i n lor it. nut it requires a roan to speak out
his thoughts as he thinks thorn to do when,
like that stormy blast in winter, on old ocean
peaco, honor security, and liTo are threatened to be
swept away. Yet who.looking back on tho page of
history or forward to the hopo of the future, would
hesitate which of the two to choose? Tho martyrs;
what aro thoy? Chronicled names in all hearts.
The patriots who diod for liberty, ignoraiuously,
and nn the scaffold; how fares it with them?
Cherished as oarth's honored sons. The good who
spoke the truth, and suffered for its sake; where
are they? The best and brightest; first in our
thoughts and love. And yet what did they?
Like men they spoke the truth, that was in them
This was thoir courage. If they had been silent,
if trembling before tyrants, or mobs, had they
feared to tell what they knew, to speak what they
felt, they would have lived and died like other
men. But they had the courago to do all this, and
through their suffering and truth, lighted it up with
new giory anu power.
Give us the moral courage before everything
else! It is the only bravery on which humanity
may count for any teal blessing. Give us moral
courage ; ior wnue h nerves a man for duty,
roots out or bis heart hato and revenge, and all
bad passions making bim wise amid danger, calm
amid excitement, just amid lawlessness, and Dure
amid corruption. It is the crowning beauty
manuoou. v. ju. coy.
SOBIESKY AND LEOPOLD.
There are few more thrilling moments in histo
ry than the early morning ot the 12th of ceptein
ber. 1003. when leima lay half in ruins under
the bombardment of the Turks. The only hope
of its deliverance rested on John Sobiesky, King
of Poland, who had joined his forces to the Aus-
triaiis under the Juke ot Lorraine, aud had posted
liunseii on ins neignuoring neignts. . iho evening
before, a rote from Starhemberg, who commanded
at Vienna, nnd a shower of rockets from the tower
of St. Stephens had given tho sigual that "no
time must be Inst; ' and the answering rockets nnd
oannon from John Sobiesky, bad thrown the Vi
ennese into an eosiaey of joy. W.th the firslrays
of the sun the troops poured down from the heights
anu tne city winch had so long been the out-work
of Christendom was saved. The Turks fled in
such haste and dismay, that their tents, with all
their Immense stores were taken into quiet pos
session by the Poles and Austrians. It is said
that the immense provision of coffee found in
these tents, treated the prevalent taste fur eoffoe
in Vienna ; and the first lioense to keep a coffee
house was given in this very year to a Pule named
Koffaohutiy, who, as a meseeager to the Duke of
Lorraine, had rendered important services to the
city. No sooner had it been known that the Turks
were approaching leima than Leopold bad fled in
terror with his family, That he returned in peace
and safety he owed to John Sobieskyt yet when he
was about to meet the deliverer of his capital, his
grand pro-oscupation was, how he should, conipli-
. . . i. t ' . c ii i . . i . .
his Imperial dignity. " How shall i reeeive
bim?" he said to the Duke of Lorraine. ."How
else, your Majesty, than with open arms? for he
saved the empire." At last it was decided mat
thoy were to meet on horseback ; and Leopard be
haved with the most repulsive ooldness. Hobies
ky, indignant, wrote to his wife; "Any one would
think Dow that we had the plaguo, and people
wore afraid to come near ux; while beforo the
battle my tents which, thnn&.God, are tolerably
roomy, could scarcely hold the multitude of com
ers. . . . Every one is disheartened, and
wishes wo had never helped the Emperor; so that
this proud race might have been overthrown, never
torise again." Westminister Review.
A paragraph on inieretl from Henry Ward Boe-
oher's pen :
No blister draws sharper than interest does. Of
all industries none is comparable to that of inter
est. It works day and night, in fair weather and
in foul.- It has no sound in its footsteps, but trav
els fast, It gnaws at a man's substance with in
visible teeth. It binds industry with its film, as a
fly is bound upon a spider's web. Debt rolls a
msn ovor and ovor, binding him hand and foot, and
lotting him hang upon the fatal mesh until the
long-legged interest devours him. There is no
crop that can afford to pry interest money on a
tarm. 1 here is but one thing raisod on a larm
like it, and that is the Canada thistle, which
swarms new plants every time vou break its root.
whose blossome are very prolific and every flower
father of a million seeds. Every leaf is an awl,
every branch a spear, and every single plant is
like a nlatoon of bayonets, and a Hold full of them
is like an armed host. The whole plant is a tor
ment and a vegetable curse. And vet a farmer
had better make his bod of Canada thistles than
attempt to lie at ease upon interest.
Soil of Francx. France has naturally a mag
niGcent soil. I prefer it, all things oonsidored, to
that ot our own YV estern Mates. We nave muon
land that is richor at the outset, but very little that
will hold its own in defiance of maltreatment so
well as this does. Lime abounds here in every
form ; the railroads aro often cut through hills of
loose chalk and very much of the subsoil in this
victnitv appears to be a rotten limestone or cyp-
sum, but it is said to be a marino doposit proved
by the mnuity of shells there imbedded, Ihere
is not a particle of stone in the surface soil ; the
rotten trypsum is, for tho most part, easily travor
sod by tho plow, though at the depth of ten to
twenty feet the same original formation may be
found bard enough to quarry into building stone.
To re-enforce such a soil, after the exhaustion pro
duced by a hundred grain crops in succession, it
is only requisite to run the plow two inches doeper
than it has hitherto cone a process urgently de
sirable on other grounds than this. I never before
observed land so thoroughly fortified against the
destructive teudencios ot human ignorance, indo
lence and tolly. Jiorace ureeiey.
Terra-eotia is ranidlv becoming one of the prin

"Tennyson, in his poem of 'Fatima,'" remarks
the Boston Post, "relates the strongest case of
suction within our knowledge at present, Speak
ing of a lover a kiss be says, or rather sbe says:
'Last night when some one spoke his name,
From my swift blood that went and came,
A thousand little shafts of flame
O love, O fire 1 Once he drew,
With one long kiss my whole soul through,
My lips, as sunlight drinketh dew.'"

there is a world of human nature to be seen in the
following anecdoto :
"A workman who was employed in blasting at
Halifax, while being wound up out of the hole,
after he had lit the fuse, was suffored to slip back
again. The man full close upon the impending
danger, and in tho sudden view of almost cortain
death, leu on his knees in prayer, w bile praying,
a thought struck mm ; tie drew out tne luse, anu
commcueod swearing at the workmen at the top."
Remarks. Yes, and it contains a world of in
struction to such ministers as get up false conver
sions and revivals by preaching the tear ot death
and hell. So long as the fear predominates, they
do tolerably well ; thoir evil passions are restrain
ed by fear; but when the fear is removed, their
passions predominate, and like young colts or
calves that have been tiod up for a while, they run
to greater lengths than ever boforo. The devil re
turns, finds the house swept and garnished, and
entors with seven more ipirits as bad as himself.

about the war being necessary to preserve the bal

A Sionificant Trutii. Miss McDowell, in the
last number of the Woman's Advocate, uttors the
following bold but significant truth :
A women are more affected liv the nrovaienpA
of immorality than men, it is really strange that
they do not frown down those vices of men which
are so frequently fatal to their tranquil itv. Many
a female who would not refuse to dine with a pro-
fligato would think herself foully insulted were
sho invitee to take tea with a courtesan; but the
ouly difference betweon the two is, one wears pan
taloons ana tne other pantalets tne moral is tne
same.
A plain truth well spoken. It is a lamentable
fact that two many respectable ladies admit to
their acquaintances men who are known to be li
centious. "Pity'tis'tis true."
In a recent letter from New York to the Ohio
Farmer we find the following :
'A gentleman's taste is known by bis clotures,'
said one gentleman to another. 'But what if he
has no piotures V Then he has no taste. I do not
exactly subscribe to this, but I do believe that any
oue who can look at fine paintings or well executed
engravings, without intense longing to possess
them, is sadly deficient in this respect. I never
go into Goupil's without needing to pray for a
mind always contented with my present condition,
for there are so many treasures of art there that
I am sorely tempted to wish my pnrse Wat better
tilled."
