.When King Lerry, surrounded by his
lords, vassals and Druids, was celebrating
his birthday at Tarn, the ancient cap.tul
of Ireland, it happened to be on the eve
of Easter. The time had come when all
the fires were to be extinguished, that after
a while they might be relighted from the
sacred torch consecrated to tlfe heathen
gpds. In the interval of hallowed daik
ness, suddenly there appeared a brilliant
light at the top of the Stupes of Charitns.
The sp'arks and flames rose from the mys
terious camp, in profanation of the ancient
faith of Tara. Who hud dared to profane
the sacred darkness by unho y tires? What
bold blasphemer ventured to ligbt the
torch until the flame had been brought
from the altar of the gods? The warriors
grasped their arms and rushed up the hill
to tear the infidel to pieces. Thiy seized
him and dragged him down to the hull of
judgement, but all the while he kept re
citing prayers to the unknown God and
when brought before the assembly of en
raged idolaters, St. Patrick, who for seven
years had be n Milcbo's herdsman slave,
stood forth, like the heroic Paul, and ans»
wered for himself. In his lonesome cap
tivity he had learned to love the Irish
people, and with the burden of salvation
be had traversed the great plains from the
mouth of the Boyne to the Slope of the
Chariots, lie stood and preached to them
all night—to the birth of the stars till the
jjgrand ascension of the sun. lie spoke as
never had man spoken in Tara. lie told
them the story of the Kazarene, uf the
Blessed Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy
Ghost—of Baptism, of the Eucharist—of
all the Sublime faith of the (Jhurc.h of
Home. Towards day li .lit the people be
gan to believe, and fell into debate, pne
with another. The arch Druid, the King,
and two beautiful maidens were converted
and baptised. The tumult increased the
true fires of heaven were blazing in thu
dark valley of Paganism, and St. Patrick
preached on^intil the day dawn began to
reveal the course of the Black-water, the
Boyne and the hills of Cavan, and the
heights of Slane. But the people could
not understand the strange doctrine of the
Trinity—how three persons should consti
tute one Clod—and, with daylight, their
hearts began to return to their idols. Sud
denly the Apostle caught up a sprig of
Shamrock, which had been holding up its
triple palms in adoration of the one true
God, and, holding it forth, he showed the
people that three leaves growing fro»j a
single stock constituted but one. Instantly
the quick-witted people understood the
mystery they rushed upon the Apoctle,
and would have carried him on their shoul
ders. From that hour Drudical super
stition was overthrown upon tho ^JkuiM of
A story is told of Lady Beaconfield's
devotion to her lord and his'ambition
wbich, if true, is a touching commentary
on the unselfishness of womanly affection.
On one occasion, when Disraeli was chan
cellor of the exchequer, his wife accom
panied him to the Parliament House.
It was "budget" night—the most moment
ous ef all sessions to the chancellor of the
exchequer, for he bad io unfold his finan*
cial plans for the ensuing year to a criti
cal and not easily satisfied bouse. Disrae
li, as be took, bis place iu tbe curria^iw*
wholly wrapt up in hi» subject and hie
figured it was crisis in his career if
he failed this night, he might take Wol
eey's advice to Cromwell, "Fling away
ambition Ilis wife entered the carriage
also, softly, so as not to disturb the think
er. In getting in, however, her finger
was caurht by the door, which, shutting
upon it, jammed it terribly and held it
80 fast that she could not withdraw it. She
uttered no cry, made ne movement her
tin and agony must have been intense.
There was the finder crushed between the
panels to Rpeak or attempt to withdraw it
would disturb her lord—would drive the
figures and arguments from his head. So
there stayed the finder, every moment
ire painful, until they reached the house,
no.' did Disraeli hear a word of it till long
after the famous debate of that night had
become history. All that evening the
faithful wife sat in the gallery, that her
husband's quick glancing eye might not
mis* her from it she bore the pain like
martyr and like a woman who loves.
No wonder that hy her husband's act
fh« has become Viscountess Beaconfield
still less wonder that, as Lady Beaeonfield,
she is honored in England's proudest cas
tles, and has taken her place in the here
ditary society as naturally and easily as if
she too had been "to the mannor
Lipjrincott's Magazine for June.
The Marshall Times contains ft descrip
tion of the marble quarries of Tama
coudty, from which we take the following
"We were deeply interested by a visit
to the quarries of Oolite marble and lime
stone. The deposit is 12 feet thick with a
light stripping of earth. The upper rook
is somen hat fractured but makes splendid
lime. The three lower layers are very
massive and thick, with seams atconven*
ient distances for easy working. Blocks
of any drsired dimensions are easily
procured for sawing purposes and the
manufacture of table tops, mantles, orna
ments, &c. The appearance or the polished
marble is very beautiful, interesting and
unique. Being a perfect mass of minute
fossils connected together with a transpar
ent erystal'ne cale spar, the solidity and
compactness of the mass and exceeding
tirmne.ss of its atomic structure render at
susceptible of the highest polish known to
art, while its beauty is enhanced by rich
veins anil groupings of cream* uff, steel
and brown co'oring. Some of this marble
has uiready found a market at high figures,
and us it not only rivuls in beauty Italian
and Egyptian marble, but as there are no
working dep jsits known to exist between
liis oint and the Atlantic, it is evident
hat an immense demand for this rare and
n*autilul articio will arise, which will nt
0 i!y benefit the proprietors, but make
Oriord a lur^eand tUmiu^ manufacturing
On this subject we have something to
ay. Six years ago a little girl of Mc
Jregor—she is now a young lady—gave
us a piece of polished Iowa, fossil marble.
We wrote about it on several occasions,
commending it to publ notice. The
Liublie did'nt "notice" much, and our
narhle-men seemed indifferent about it.

vvithout it. We have seen in the Patent
ffice, ut Washington, all the bmutiful

waters covered the preat deep," it may be
irthodox to believe thar the land has come
up out of the water, but we are not par
ticular about theories. Before us is a
splendid specimen of these fossil beauties
handed us by Marshall Hatfield of this
city. It is a world in itself—a book—a

di'scriptioD of the "poor farm," I will
proceed to tbe nvxt thing of importance:
the U. I. U. This noted Institution seta
on the hill, the sun gets behind it when he
wants to get up. In this school, as in
common schools, students are goy
erued inoBtly by .tbe persuasive
e oquenee of Brush refractory students
are often "suspended." The most curious
thing connected with the building, is Mc
Luin's "curiosity shop the most promi
nent curiosity, is ''wouians eurbsity." It
is comical .that the commencement should
ho the aid of the term it is ot: the same
principle of a "Germans'' house, the (rout
door on tbe back tide. The word Tethe
gaihiati, in English is Tethegampiao.
Bacca'auriate is, "a bachelor I bate" (not
usdd hy the ladies.) We have "literary
exercises" every once in a while, or a
while and a half this is all the exercise
we have. The iuo*t beneficial society is
the "faculty meetingstudents are not
permitted to attend, unless by "special"
invitation tbvn it is a "breach of
etiquette" to decline. We would be happy
to see the men of the scissors and quill

NEW YORK, June 18.—Thesudden death
of Henry J. Raymond, editor-in-chief of

newspaper and political circles. He

The 1'ost gives the facts of Mr. Ray
monds death, from the best authoiity. as
"Mr. Raymond, accompanied by his
daughter, went to Green
wood cemetery, on
yesterday afternoon, for the purpose of
selecting a family plat. He intended to
have the body of one of his children, who
died a few weeks niro, r-moved frout the
to his associate editors that he never felt
better in his life, except a slight feeling of
fatigue, consequent upon his loag walk
through the cemetry.
"He left the office about 8 oclock, and
proceeded to his residence, in West Ninth
street, where he remained until 8 o'clock,
to recover from the fatigue of the after
noon. Mr. Raymond left the hnut-e about
9 o'clock, remarking to the members of
his family that he had an appointment to
attend a political meeting. He was seen
shortly alter, walking up Broadway, and
one or two friends, who stood in front of
Wullack's theatre, noticed his elastic step
and general appearance of robust health/'
"After attending the meeting, Mr. Ray
mond returned to his residence, about II
o'clock, and as soon as he had closed the
door after him, *he fell heavily upon the
floor. None of the inmates of the house
heard the fall, however, having retired for

Mr. Raymond's children became restles,

were immediately awakened, and on de
scending the hall-way, Mr. Raymond was
found extended on the tloor, entirely un
conscious, breathing heavily, and appar
ently with great difficulty. He was car
ried to his room, placed upon a bed, and
physicians sent for.
"Four physicians arrived soon after

to fie apoplexy.

Tbe Lt| Drama*
One of the greatest shames in the shape
of an excuse for indecent theatrical per
formances is that which asserts that the

Moreover, tbe assertion that the legiti

It is a base libel on the majority of the

It is a noteworthy fact that not a singls
newspaper in Chicago has come forward
as the apologist of the degradation to
which the opera-house has been subjected
under its present management. Most of
them, with that true currjsh instinct which
necessitates barking at something, set up
a vigorous yelp at the Times but none of
them venture to contrudict the charges
which we made against the opera-house

were made. It is true that the interests of

effect of everything that touches the heart
is multiplied by the intensity of the heart's
own changes. Hence it is so sensative—
so true and so quick an index of the body's
state. Hence, also, it is that it never
wearies. Let me remind you of the work
done by our hearts in a day. A man's to
tal outward work, his whole effect upon
the world, in twenty-four hours, has been
reckoned at about three hundred and fifty
foot-tons. That may be taken as a good
"hard day's work." During the same
time, the heart has been working at the
rate of one hundred and twenty foot-tons.
That is to say, if all the pulses of a day
and night could be concentrated and wel
ded into one great throb, that throb would
be enough to throw a ton of iron one hun
dred and twenty feet into the air. And
yet the heart is never weary.
Many of us are tired after but feeble
labors few of us can hold a poker ont j»t
arm's length without, after a few minutes,
dropping it. But a healthy heart, and
many an unsound heart, too—though
sometimes you can tell in the evening,
by its stroke, that it has been vexed dur
ing the day, that it has been thrown off
its balance by the turmoils and worries of
life—goes on beating through the night
while we are asleep, and when we awake
in the morning we find it at work, fresh as
if it had only just begun to beat. It does
this because upon each stroke of work
there follows a period, a brief but a real
period of rest because the n«xt stroke
which comes is but the natural sequence
of that rest, and made to match it be

his good-bye to Grant.
"When I went ^to Mr. (Irant't office

received me pleasantly, and I was given a

about the resources of llayti, its history,

Grant opened a map of the West Indies

During our conversat on Mr. Cresswell
also examined a cyclopaedia regarding
some points that arose. The president
was very emphatic, and at the same time
very cautious about expressing himself
about the policy of annexation. He said
his own views were in favor of such poli
cy, but that he thought in all cases th«
people of the country tube anrexed should
first show themselves anxious for union
with us, and that then it would be a sub
ject for the considetation of onr govern
ment. You see he was very careful in bis
expression on that subject, saying that
even after a people showed themselves fa
vorable to annexation, it would still be a
question for our consideration. He said
he had no particular instructions to give
me. I told him I could only bring to the
office, with which he had honored me, pat»
