but the Nightingale is as dumb in the province as

pride themselves upon their skill and boldness.

"Well, and perhaps vou think "
"That you are the person exactly bo, Madame ;

'' 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."

' The argument waa unanswerable, and the Night

"Ah, I was sure of it," replies the author of the

this disguise, and eease to sully an illustrious

-"Very well, madame; but your proteatationa are

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

we saw the log of the vessel from tho 1st of Sep

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.

And strong in Him whose cause is ours,
In conflict with unholy powers,

It is not (O surprising, in this age of utility and

hitherto been paid to beautifying the surroundings
of country residencea with shady lawna and ave

liuet kinds of shellbarka, Maderia nuts, almonds,
and chestnuts, are in keeping with the doorynrd

deserve to be,
Meantime, room could be found for a sprinkling
of our native oak, elm, maple, pine, hemlock, etc.,

from its long season of verdure, though not indi

contrast, and should not bo overlooked in localities
where they can be readily procured.
Many, doubtless, nre discouraged or deterred
from planting, either for the grove or orchard,
through nn impatience to enjoy the fruits of their
labor; for, unlike tho majority of farm improve
ments, a lapse of time is required to bring them
to well grown maturity; yet in many cases trees
of large size cau be selected, and it should be
borne in mind that a treo once well established is
continually progressing, and that there ia a beau

after development to the real lover of nature.
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.

In which the laurels flourished;

The guilt that stains her story,

That formed her earliest glory.

The tribes of earth shall humble
The prido of those who reign.

Shall fade, decay and periah.

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

group, nor the memento mori, nor tbe tuken uf
