It was the last day of the solemn ceremonies of the church. 1 received word from a lordly superior that a Vcnitiuu lady \yould attend confes sional in the littje sacristy adjoining the church of ——, and was instructed to re ceive her confession mid give absolu tion.

With speed I past tho densely crowded streets, and breathless from my flight found myself at last alone. It was a night of loveliness, and çh how deeply are its mejporius treasured up iu my heart ! The Heavens were unclouded ; the pale stars looked forth from amid their solemn march of beauty, und the silver she bathed the dome of the Vatican with stream of glory, seemed to smile upon that city of a thousand proud and yet degrad ing memories ! The Tiber rolled lazily in the distance like a stream of molten gold, and the hills of Rome threw their sombre shadows ruins, grey with the age of long gone turies !

But my crime ! I had murdered Count Manfrini as he knelt at my mother's grave imploring forgiveness of her gentle spirit. She in her last moments, had accorded that forgiveness—yet I. uopitying. callous, aye almost sneriligious!—had dyed the sod that rose above her burial spot with hlood —and now, that, years had past, Frances oa, the daughter of the murdered, the mis tress of my early love hsd, in my arms,— p and the ond and ay»* ! ini lit? tin* Go»Jl< .-In rt* in cm ht 'lod my Cli U|M 111 1 thought of Huiciile! hut the spirit witii iu laughed at the thought ! what, strive to banish the memory of horrors by flu* dagger or the drug? preposterous!

Remarkable days this month .—The 8th is the Nativity of tho Rlessed Virgin; the 14th is Holy Cross, or Holy Rood ; 23d the sun crosses the line and we have the Rquinox ; 29th is St. Michael's, or .Mich aelmas Day. In England this was held us a day of feasting, aud a goose «vas always served for dinner. History says Queen eating goose on that day, according to tl;e custom, wl)en she receiv ed news of the destruction of the Spanish Armada, and ever afterwards on that duv she had goose iu commemoration of the event. Iiut a fat goose may be enjoyed on otljer dityp, before and after Michael mas Day—at feast such is my opinion.

The finest and beat flavored crop of peaches I ever saw was many years ago in an orchard of an old lady friend of mine in this county, who raised them all from the atom? plan ted as soon as she could after eating the poach.

For every bushel of grain that they bad sold at the advanced rutes, they wore compelh ed to sell ten at a corresponding loss. Am for the speculator*, their losses were ini uitnse. Immense fortunes were lost, an l parties found themselves with heavy stocks on baud, which they were obliged to sell tor little more tluiu half what they cost.* There can be no doubt that much of the general business depression of the present year may be attributed to the policy ot holding back the graiu crops. Warned by experience* it is to be earnestly hoped that this error may not be' repeated. As a general thing, prices 1 rule higher in the Fall than in the Spring; any rate, the advance seldom covers the and injury of winter storage, and the loss of interest on the money that might Ipive been realized four or six months om her.
