FOR TUK MARIPOSA OCMOCBAT. FANCY. Gay child of the airy realm. whose more than mortal away, Usurps dominion o’er the sphere of thought; The first to meet—the last to leave us on the way Of life’s rough course, a welcome friend, unsought. High up on the summer cloud, you spread your wings, When scenes delighting, charm the youthful eye, Wrought by the magic power which thy presence brings, They form and glide—then vanish in the sky. You have an altar where hopr is ever kneeling, And poets singing verses in thy praise; Where pensive memory strikes the harp of feeling, j And silence sleeps or loiters while lie plays. You have a lovely grove, where sighing wooers stray, And fragrant roses grace the maiden's glow ; Where gloomy Borrow wanders from the light of day, And crystal streams make music as they flow. You have a battle-field to please the warrior’s sight, Where gleaming sabres flash amid the strife, His martial spirit quick’ning at the mimic fight, O’erleaps the vacant space to risk his life. Man does but will, and thou, ol>odient to his call, Enchanting prospects open to his view, Like fairy pictures sketched on some revolving ball, Forever changing in their shape and hue. At evening, before the visage of the sleeping, You wide extend the brilliant fan of dreams; When the body quietly resigns its keeping, And mind exulting approaches unto Heaven. All that is grand, glorious, beautiful, sublime, That poetry can portray, or art control, Rich Fancy paints on the wing of flying time, Nor fade her colors save with the dying soul. w. n. [IOMSUNICATKP.] The French Kilkii «f Terror—A Strange Incident* Mbssrs. Editors : — The state of the French mind during the Reign of Terror, becoming a theme of conversation a few evenings since, among some friends and myself, the following thoughts, and the incident accompanying them, as related below, were suggested to my mind, after a lapse of many years since I had been deeply interested in the subject. Whatever difference of opinion may obtain regarding the aims and objects of the first re volution, however Robespierre may be anath ematized, or the orgies presided over by the Goddess of Reason ridiculed ; all must agree | that its action first shook the prestige of thrones, and that the doctrines then promul gated planted those seeds in the European mind and understanding, which, although 1 slow of growth, must ultimately produce a ra tional comprehension of philosophy and the science of government. Rut there was another species of supersti tion dissipated then, besides that antique loy alty which led men to grovel a: the foot of the throne, and with fearful awe, the result of a false education, to close their eyes to the ac tions of a powerful aristocracy. It was then ♦hat the men of Europe began to think for themselves in smaller as well as in greater things, and the truth of those “ Superstitions of the People ,” the result of that wretched want of education which for centuries had served to brutalize and darken the common mind, began to he doubted, and to fade away before philosophic light At this day we are informed that in some parts of Germany, once so famous for its minor superstitions, the masses, far from reverencing the notions of their fathers, even mix philosophy with reli-1 gion. There are many anecdotes related of occur rences in Paris in those days, which, however j ridiculous they may now appear, were then . currently retailed, and seriously believed, and to one who rellects, a knowledge of them might serve to throw great light on the state of I mind prevalent among the masses at that day. | A French gentleman, well advanced in years, l related to me the following, which he seemed i to seriously think was true. During the Reign of Terror, and when the i minds of the French people was either raised ; to the bight of enthusiasm, or sunk to the low est depths of despondency, there resided in Paris a young German student who was pos tdessed of an ardent temperament, and who was deeply imbued with that antique lore 'which traced its foundation to the philosophy •of the middle ages. It may well be supposed that such a character would enter w ith enthu siasm into the leading excitements of the day, and hail with rapture the coming political mil leniuni. Rut there was also an under current pervad ing the student’s imagination, which at once harrassed and excited him ; he had ever pres ent to his mind’s eye the image of a most love ly female, which, spite of all his menial exer tions, scarcely ever left his presence, sleeping or waking, until—it might be said, in the lan guage of that day—it was wrapped up in the ivory essence of his existence. Returning to his lodgings, late one lovely ..summer evening, he perceived by the moon’s light, a woman seated on some steps in a de .serted street. This was not an uncommon oc currence at that time in Paris, but some un known, irresistablc power compelled him to address her. She looked up, when, Oh, Hea vens ! he beheld before him the very incarna tion of that image which had so long haunted ,his imagination. The result may be easily an ticipated—marriage was scarcely a formality at that time in France—the wretched girl in formed him she had no home, and he led her to his—a marriage was hastily solemnized — he pledged himself to be hers forever, and the marriage was consummated. The next morning, on drawing the curtain to gaze upon his lovely sleeping bride, he dis covered, to his horror, that he lay beside a corpse! An investigation took place; the Commissary of Police was summoned, and on entering the room he started, and ex claimed, “Whence came this woman? She was guillotined yestenlay morning!” There was a scapulary or broad black velvet ribbon tied around her neck, and on removing it the bead rolled from the body, and plainly showed the decapitation. The state of the student's mind may be ea sily imagined. Convinced, now, of what be fore he had partially feared, that he had been selected as a victim by some demon, and that the unholy spirit had at length succeeded in his designs against him, the student went mad, and perished in a hospital d. Stkanob Markiaoes.— Of the many China men in Now York, says the Mercury , not a few keep cigar stands on the sidewalks. Their neighbors in trade arc the Milesian apple-wo men. Twenty eight of those apple-women have gone the way of matrimony with their almond-eyed, olive skinned cotemporarics, and the most of them arc happy mothers in conse quence. The physiologists aver that the hu man being is improved, as is the domestic branch of the quadrupedal animal, by “ cross ing.’ 1 If this be true—and we suspect that it is—the natives of this country ought to be re markable for physical strength and beauty; for surely there was never such a mixture of races in any part of the world. Representa tives of all nations have located and married here. We know of two Bedouin Arabs, part of an exhibiting troupe that came to this country several years ago, who married wives and are rearing offspring in one of the Hud son river counties. Siam had its representa tives here in the famous twins, and in one of the up-town streets a wealthy native of Mo rocco domiciliates with a Westchester county spouse. The mixture of Dutch, Italian, French, Spanish, English, Irish, Danish, Swedish, etc., is perfectly bewildering; but the amalgama tion of the Irish and the Chinese is more than bewildering—it begets a chaos of ideas from which no ray of intelligibility can bo safely elucidated. Imagine a scion of this stock chattering gaily about “Josh” in one moment, and speaking of his father Ping Sing Chi, and in the next whirling a shillelah at a primary election, and swearing that he goes in, tooth and nail, or rather body and breeches, for the nomination of his mother’s brother, Patrick O’Dowd. Oh, what a country is this! Seven. —ls there any magic in the number seven, enquires the Globe. The years 1817, ’27, ’37, ’47 and ’57 have been remarkable for their financial revulsions, the alternate decades being the most severe, until superstitious peo ple have come to regard seven as an unlucky number, and ’77, it is supposed will round the history with a most convincing illustration.
