English ears avo no terror fur ber. - Three week of ailence have oppressed her; fur, ftfter oil, all it a woman, aod, like all women, ihe lores to tnlk but the wilt contrir to iudouinify herself for it. . A Very pleasant anecdote it related of tlie jour ney of the nightingalo, the scene of which Is laid in Calais some say Boulogne but it matter! little" whether it be Calais, Boulogne, Havre, or licppe. Her 1 the atorv : Leaving Pari by rail, Jenny Lind arrives in the evening at the ae.vcoast, and for the sake of ropoae determines to pass the night there. Great artiste take verv sood oare of thamsolves, and so theoanta "trice will pass a comfortable night, and not cross the straights until the next morning. At Calais or Buuloirne her arrival it announced. There 'aro distinguished amateurs there, dilettante whu 'will bo dulighted to hear the Swedish Nightingale; but the Nightingale is as dumb in the province as in Paris ; Jenny Lind visit with her displeasure the departments as well na the capital, and has Traced ail France under her interdict. Poor France ! ' Among the provincial dilettante are some who pride themselves upon their skill and boldness. Must they cross the straits to hear the Nightingale -in London f Of what avail are their wit und audacity, if they simply content themselves with making a journey, which any one can accorapliah who has money and time to spare f What a de lightful thing it would be to hear Jenny wituout paying a sous, or without leaving the town, and to cause her to break her obstinate resolution not to ing in France 1 and what a triumph, couM they ucceed m the undertaking I Uut what nope is there of success T Scarcely has the Nightingale been installed in the apartments prepared for her, when three gen tlemen make their appearanoe. They disregard the directions to admit no ono.aud enter by author- - ity. Their severe deportment, their magisterial air, and manners, cool and self-possessed, denote persons charged with business of importance One .. of tbem, addressing the Nightingale, vbom he ac costs without any salutation, enys, in a sharp and ppromptory tone, '' "Giro me your passport, Madame." Jenny Lind. astonished, but still faithful to her vow of silence while on French soil, surrender her passport ' without a syllable. The gentlemen having exam ined It with a carefulness indicative of the most profound distrubt," remarks, with a roughness ' migled with irony, "Oh. we aro aware that you have neglected no precautions, and that you tiavel under an assumed name. "For whom do you take mo t" replies Jenny.com pelled at last to' speak. 'Do not hope to deceive ue. You see that we "are well informed. Avery clever female impoa ter, who has been living in Paria for aomo time - nast. where she has deceived numberless dupes, having collected a considerable sum of money, is endeavoring to reach England. "Well, and perhaps vou think " "That you are the person exactly bo, Madame ; your features, person and general appearance con , form exactly to the description we have received. '' Our instructions are positive." The Nightingale protests loudly and indignant ly that she is Jenny Lind, but her angry ex plan a ' tions are met by the moat ironical incredulity on '' the part of her visitors. ' The spokesman of the party inquires if she can find bail or establish ber identity ; but Jenny does not know a soul in the ' Tjlace.' "Then, Madame, we muat take you into custody ' for the present." r;-' J At these worda the proteatationa of the great " artist are redoubled in vigor, but are met by the followine answer : "But, Madame, there is a Very simple way of confounding or convincing ua. You pretend to be Jenny Lind very well : if yon are she, you have -" no need of procuring bail or witnesses, for you ear- - ry witn yon loe-aisunguisnea prooi oi your iaeu ' tity. Nothing is easier than to prove that you are ' really a great artist, a resplendent genius, a won ' defuf singer. I am enough of a musician to decido ' that, aod now give ua the proofs." ' The argument waa unanswerable, and the Night , ingale, in a dilemma,hesitates before accepting the fc- alternative offered to her. "Ah, I was sure of it," replies the author of the " proposition ; "you are confounded. Put off then this disguise, and eease to sully an illustrious a name." "Which is my own, air." -"Very well, madame; but your proteatationa are 'of no avail if you are nnable to give, ua the proofs , which we require. It remains for us only to ex acute Our ordera." "Well," exclaims the Nightingale vanquished and resigned, "if it muat be so, listen, and judge loryourselves. Then, after a moment' pause to collect herself, animated by the certainty of the effect which ia going to produce, and of the triumph which . awaits her, ahe commences the cavatina from ''" '"Norma." Her voice, so pure, ao melodious, ao " powerful, displays all it former richness : the three gentlemen are in a state of ecatacy and d light. -"Brave ! admirable 1 sublime 1" they exclaim, as the last note is uttered. "Admirable 1 sublime : ia repeated from the adjoining apartment, the door . , of which opening, discover several other persona applauding vehemently. At the sight of these new . bearers, Je&ny diaoover the device practised to en '"'trap her. .."You must pardon u the artifice," exclaim the culprits, "and also toe discomtort we nave occa- aioned you, and the restraint uoder whieh you have . been placed. However enormous may have been our error, we have mot the courage to regret since it has been the source of much pleasure : as. Our excuse must rest in your renown, and our desire to listen to you. No one is more com potent than yourself to detect the vagaries of mu sical fanaticism. You are generous you are char itable be appeased, then, with the reflection that too have sung for a charitable object. Each of pays a hundred francs for the inestimable happi- ' . asss thai ha has enjoyed ; we are ten, and whole will make a purse of a thousand francs, which we shall present to the poor in your name." The eulprita pleaded their cause so felicitously - and eloquently that they were forgiven. Besides, what would have been the use of being angry The evil waa irremediable and the cantatrice could . sot recall her notes. In spite of ber severity ,' ward the French public, Jenny Lind is a woman - spirit, amiable and warm-hearted, and she pardontl d tbem. Aod this is the way in wnioh the teurs of a provincial town have succeeded in get. ting the start of Paris, and have beard Jenny Lind sing. " From Life Illustrated. CAPTAIN BUDINGTON. .

The Muntiromerv furnished them with a barrel of pota toes and some water. From the 21st of October, when they mad tail for New London, the crew were constantly engaged in "trimming" the VflftMll. Their food, consisting of provisions found on the Resolute, was nearly gone, aod hod not Captain Mclntyre aeaeonablveupplied them, they would hava been verv badlv off. The Resolute reached New London December 23d, and came to anchor three quarters of a mile from the wharf, nut far from the Oroton shore. During the passage the crew were much troubled for. water, having tu melt ice and drink a brackish fluid, from one of the ves sel's tanks, which was only tolerable when made into chocolate. " She lost one whole suit of sail during the pasiage, they being completely "used up," Mr. Quale, the mate, and three men boarded the Resolute for the first time, September 17th. The ice round her was from twenty-five to thirty foet thick. Getting? on deck, thev found every thing stowed away in proper order for a desertion spars hauled np to sne side and bound, boat piled to gether, covering snow-sleds, hatches closed, etc. Every thing was silent and darx in tno caum, uui they broke in the hatchway door, and felt their wav in darkness to the table. On it they tuund matches and candles, and thadecantera of the offi cert, with excellent liquor in tliem.glansesstanding around, juat as they had been left au many months betore. . A dry mold had gathered over every thing. Ihe iron watar-Unka in tha hold had burst from ex treme cold, and the water thev had held had flow ed over the bottom of the hofd. Every thing be tvMn ilMki Mril ith moisture. A sort of perspiration had arisen from the water under neath, and settled above. Many articles of np nuril war fnnnd "wrinirins wet." The party made a fire.in the cabin, and the mould soon began to drip down upon them. On boarding the ahip the first impression is one of admiration at the massive strength of every thing connected with her build.

The hammocke are all ruined. A cover waa thrown off the forecastle yesterday, and every thing in it waa covered with rust and mold. Going below, wo entered first the cabin. Thie was, of courae, the captain s room, and it ia fitted up in the very aubatantial and elegant man ner of English navy vessels. In two places in the room are cabinets filled with valuablo books. It is estimated that even now there are about two thousand volumes, all standard reading, on ooara. We noticed a full set of "Bees' Encyclopaedia, Agnes Strickland's "Lives ot tne yueens oi nB land," Shakspesre, several volumes, etc. Wore we saw the log of the vessel from tho 1st of Sep tember, 1863, to April 3d, 1854. We copied one entry, aa follows : H. M. S. "Resolute," 17th January, 1854. 9 a. x. mustered by divisions. People taking exercise in deck. 5 r. m. Mercury frozen. The book in which these records were kept was quite musty, not to say moldy. Others in the cabin were in a very good Btate. But wo saw fine Vinnka all nvM- tha shin, covered with mold so thictlr aa tn he disagreeable to haudle.

WHITTIER. 1" it, to ua the f to- When Freedom, on her natal day Within her war-rocked cradle lay, An iron race around her atood, Baptized her infant brow with blood, And through the atorma that round her awept. Their constant ward and watching kept. Then where the quiet herds repose, The baleful roar of battle rose; And brethern of a oommon tongue, To mortal strife as tigers sprung. And every gift on Freedom's shrine, Was man for beast, and blood for wine. Our fathers to their graves have gone; Their strife are o'er, their triumphs wen; But nobler conflicts wait the race That rises in their honored place; A moral warfare with the crime And folly of an evil time. So let it bo. In God's own might.

Yet it ia apparent if vou exclude the am ateurs and suburban residents about our large cit ies that, excepting tbo standard apple orchard and oerchanc an occasional grove of flourishing maple and oaks, reserved for the building site, through the forethought of the tasteful owner, farmers of this eountry have too much neglected . i u i i - : . tt. i. tne reuuiog aau pigMing Bouooanruw iv tuu uviuc atead.

JAPAN. in ot the let at be Much information concerning Japan and the Japanese may be gleaned from the work of J. W. spauluing, who accompanied the expedition ot Commodore Perry. Of the valuo of this informa tion, or the advantages to be derived from the treaty made with these secluded islanders, there aeemsyetto be aome doubt. Ihey are singular people, however, and every item ot information concerning them ia regarded with interest. Wo quote the following: Japanese Places of Wonsnip arc the chief ob jects of interest ashoro to visit, and consist of the Sintoo, Buddhist temples, and aome smaller ones, dedicated to the tutelar deities of the soldiers and the mariners. The Japanese display great rural taste always in their locations, selecting the most picturesque, and at tunes the most elevated Fpots for their erection. Attached to these temples are usually Kungwas, or places where the weary trav. cler may rest for the night, and get some tea and eatables from the attendant priests. A Sintoo tein- file, juat at tho end of the principal etreet lrom tne anding at Simoda, waa the chief place for tho hold ing of official interviews, overhung by large trees and steep boulders of granite. The spacious and level vard in front was divided with stone cross ings smoothly cut. and in it stood alone a towei Cyclopean masonry, in which waa hung ono of the sweet-toned bells. Their manner of striking.which is by a piece of grceu wood swung horizonically on the outside of the bell, gives a delightful soil ness to the sound, while the proximity to the earth increases the distance at which it may be hcurd. The altar in the place of worship was very plain, and had incense burning on it. Its only ornament consisted of bronze castiugs. representing their cred crane on the back a tu:toisc,and a small gilded elephant. There, of course, was the invariable accompaniment of Sintoo worship a small mirror an emblsm of tho soul's perfect purity; or accord ing to some, aa plainly aa the votary sees his own featurea iu that mirror so plainly do tho media tory spirits to whom he prays see his spiritual and temporal wants. Such a style of worship would scarcely answer for tho belles of our land. As devotee enters one of these temples, he first drops a few "cash" (about the fifteenth of a cent) into carefully secured tin box at the door; then by sha king a lot of slcigh-Iooking bells hanging from beam, attracts to his prayers the attention of mediatory spirits, who only number some three thousand ; those are the Kami, conferees of Spiritual Emperor or Mikado, and atmlugous to aaints of the Catholics. Vehicles. The only wheeled vehicle you see a rude band-cart, tbe wheels without tires. Should you meet a man on the back of an oa, bringing town bundles ot wood, tbe sight ot your barbarian garments is very apt to inconso him greatly ; and the rider, disturbed by his movements, dismounts, takes him by the tether, and leads him aside. Plowing. This is done with a small plow, with a single hand and beam, the share being like iron scoop, not of much diameter. It is drawn by an ox in traces and with a wodden saddle, while a small boy leads hiin with a stick attached to ring in the nose, and a man holds the handle the diminutive carth-scratcher. Japanese Beli.es. Tbe young women, with their elaborate arrangements of hair, though rath er ungainly in gait, owing to the use of clogs, and wearing about the hips an awkward compressing scarf, are quite good-looking, and, with lighter complexions, have also much better shaped eyes than tbe Chinese. On marying.-they share their eye-brows, and blacken their teeth with aome iron rust aa a badge of the marital state from which they become inost repulsive. Dime.

AGRICULTURAL ODE. BY WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT. Far back in age The plow with wreaths was crown 1, The hands of kings and sages Entwined the chaplet round Till men of spoil Disdained the toil By which the world wai nourished, And Hood and pillage wei the soil In which the laurels flourished; Now the world her fault despairs The guilt that stains her story, Ar.d weeps her crimes amid the cares That formed her earliest glory. .The proud throne shall crumblo, The diadem shall wane, The tribes of earth shall humble The prido of those who reign. And war shall lay His pomp away. Tho faino that heroes cherish, The glory elkrned in deadly fray Shall fade, decay and periah. Honor waits o'er all the earth, Through ondlcss generations The art that culls the harvest forth And feeds the expectant nations. THE FROZEN DEAD. Tlirt slitAtia ftf tlm rrfan Insl inlnrAul nr lliA Tf.tum.in jof tho griuj(1 St i)uniirja aoiemn, extraordinry interest, indeed is that of tho Morgue, or build ing where tho dead bodies of lost travelers are de posited. There they are, some of them as when the breath of lite departed, and the death nngol, with his instruments of frust and snow, stiffened and embalmed them fur ages. The floor is thick with nameless skulls und bones, and human dust heaped in confusion. But around the walls are groups of poor sufferers in the very position in which they were tuund, aa rigid aa marble, and, in this nir, by the preserving elements of au eternal frost, sAmost as uncrumbling. There ia a mother and bar child, a most affecting iinmage of suffer ing and love. The face of the littlo one remains pressed to the mother's bosom, only the back part of the skull being visible, the body enfolded in her careful arms earful iu vain, affectionate in vain, to shield her offspring from the elomcntal wrath of the tempest. The snow fell fast and thick, and the hurricane wound them both up in one white vhroud and buried them. There is also a tall, strong man, standing alone, tho face dried and black, but the white, unbroken teeth, brmly set and closed, grin ning from the fleghloss jaws; it is a moat awlul spectacle. The face aeema to look at you, from the recess of the sepulchre, ns if it would tell you thptl story ot a ueatli-struggle in the aturm. There are other groups more indistinct, but these two are never to bo forgotten; and tho whole of these dried and frozen remnants ot humanity are a tcriifio de monstration of the fearfulneas of this mountain pass, when the elements, lot loose in fury, encoun ter the unhappy traveler. You look at all this through the grated window; there is just enougli to mnke it solemnly and distinctly visible, and to read it in a powerful record of mental aud physical agony, and ot maternal love anu death, that lit tle child hiding its face on its mothor's bosom, and both frozen to death ! one can never forget the group, nor the memento mori, nor tbe tuken uf deathless love. Wanderingt of a Pilgrim. A UNIVERSAL CHURCH. of Lydia Maria Cbilds writea to Lile Illustrated, "I cherish the hope that, some time or other, there will be a Universal Church;and already I aee aome indications of its approach. It ia reported that Abd-hl-Kader, a Mohammedan tmir, now in Par is, has written a book to prove that Judaism, Chris tianity, and Mohammedanism are only one religion differing merely in details. He aays: "If Mussul mans and Christiana would believe me, they might agree, and treat each other as brethren." In this work tbe reverential Arab complains that Chris tian scholars are not in the habit of raising their minds toward God, the author of nil things, as they ought. It is something new to be instructed reverence and mutual charily by a Mohammedau missionary 1 For all such signs I am deeply thank ful.

We heard it the other day, when two parted that had been "loving in their lives," one to California und the other tu her lonely home. Everybody says it aome time or other. The littlo boy whispers it when he dreams of exchang ing the little stubbed boots for those like a man. The man murmurs it when, in life's middle watch, he sees his plans half finished and htTpes yet in the bud, waiving in the cold, late springs. The old man says it when he thinks of putting off the mortal for tbe immortal, to-day for to-morrow. Tho weary watch for the morning, and while away tho dark with "by and by." Sometimes it sounds like n song; sometimes there ia a Bigh or a sob in it. What wouldn't world give to find it in almanacs set down some where, no matter if in the dead of Decembor know that it would surely come 1 But fairy-like aa it is, flitting like a star-beam over the dewy shadows of years, nobody can spare it; and look upon the many times these words have beguil ed us, the memory of the Bilver "by and by" like the suuriso of Ossian, .pleasant but mourcful to the soul. Picayune. A New Course of Sermons. Some one, who feels the need of being "up with the times," writes to the Philadelphia Christian Chronicle as follows: "Wo have had 'The Women of tbe Bible' 'The Daughters of the Bible,' and many other things that lino; and now we are having from one of pulpits in New York 'The Mothers of the Bible,' with the usual varieties. Please announce through your valuable columns, that I propose commencing a course of sermons on 'The Men of the Bible! among thi subjects of which will be the following: Adam, the Grandfather of all. Noah, the First Sea Captain. Esau, the Man with the Heavy Beard. Absalom, the Fast Young Man. Nebuchadneziar, the First Pure Vegetarian. Folix, the Free-Lover, &c, &o." Railroad Accidents.
