Our offerings on the earth were east, And God's ova blessing has eome down, Our sacrifice of faith to crown. 3To conqueror oer oar fields has gone, T- Mast with war our summer bowers, Aad stain with bleod ef woe and guilt, ' The soil thatgiveth life to flowers; But morning dews and evening rains Bare fallen on our beauteous plains. And earth, through all her realms abroad, Oires back the image of her God. Bright, with the AuUuna's richest tints, aeh hill lifts up its head ou high. And spreads its fruits and blossoms out, Aa offering meet beneath the sky; And hilL and plain, and Tale, and grove. Join in the sacrifice of lore, And wind, and stream, and lake, and sea, lift high their hymns of ecitacy . It is the festival of earth The flame of lore o'er nature bums, And to th holy heaven goes up Like incense from a thousand urns; And oh, let man's impassioned voice, With nature's self in song rejoice. Until the blended notes of love King from the temple-arch above. BY GEORGE D. PRENTICE. Miscellaneous. From Ballou's History fo Cuba. Administration of justice in Cuba. During the first year of Tacon's gover norship, there was a young Creole girL I 3 r 11 T.l . .v . ! namea juiraiaa .tstaiez, who Kept a little : cigar-store in the Colle de Marcaderes, and whose shop was the resort of all the young men of the town who loved a choicely-made and superior cigar. Miralda was only sev enteen, without a mother or father living, and earned an humble though sufficicut support by her industry in the manufacto ry we have named, and by the sales, of her little store. She was a rjicture of ritened tropical beauty, with a .finely rounded -form, a lovely face, of soft, olive tint and teeth that a Tuscarosa might envy her. At times there was a dash of langour in her dreamy eye that would have warmed an anchorite; ni then her cheerful jests were so delicate, yet free, that she had un wittingly tamed the heads, not to say hearts, of hajf the young merchants in the Call de Marcaderes. But she dispensed -her favors without partiality; none of the rich and gy exquisites of Havana could say they had ever received any particular acknowledgement of the fair young girl to their wara and constant attention. For -this one she had a pleasant smile, for an--other a few words of pleasant gossip, and mira a snatcn of a Spanish song; but to none did she give her confidence, except 'to young Fedro Mantanex, a fine looking Iwiiman, who plied between the Puntaand Moro Castle, on the opposite side of the harbor. Tedro was a manly and courageous young fellow, rather above his class in intelli gence, appearance .and associations, and pulled his oars with a strong arm and light heart and loved the beautiful Miralda with -n ardor romantic in its fidelity and truth. He was a sort of leader among the boat men of the harbor for reason of his supe rior cultivation aid. intelligence, and tis .quick-witted agacity was often turned for 'the benefit of -kts comrades. Maay were ttheoble deeds he had done in and about the harbor since a boy, for he had followed Lis calling of a waterman since boyhood, as his fathers had done before him. Mi ralda in turn ardently loved Fedro ; and, when he came at night and sat in the back part of her little shop, she had always a neat and fragrant cigar for his lips. Now And then, when she would steal away from aer enop on some holiday, redro 1 is a would hoist a tiny sail in the prow of his atif ana securing the little stern awnmg over 1 iliralda's head, would steer out into gnlf, and coast along the romantic aliore. ! an There was a famous roue, well known at ! this time in Havana, named Count Almon- j f te, who had frequently visited Miralda's -hop, and eonceived guite a passion forthe - 1 1-1 . . . . eiri, anOjanueed, he had grown to be One u--i7,-luu . ... o it of his intended victim without appearing ; tj do so, and carried on his plan of opera ! for many weeks before the innocent girl even suspected his possessing a partial-1 ity for her. until one day she was surprised , of her most 1-beral customers. With a "-cunning shrewdness and knowledge of hu man nature, the Count besieged the heart iy a present from him of so rare and cost- ly a nature as to lead her to suspeci the 4onor's intentions at once, and to promptly I -decline the offered gift.

One afternoon, not long after this, as 4he twilight was settling over the town, a file of soldiers halted just opposite the door of the little cigar shop, when a young ' but man; wearing a lieutenant's insignia, en- and asked the attendant if her name Miralda Estales, to which she timidly responded. "Then you will please to come with of .me." j "By what authority?" asked the trem- bind fcling girL "1M order M the governor-general. ' 'Then I must obey yon," she answered; and prepared to folio w him at once. Stepping to the door with her, the young officer directed his men to inarch on; and, getting into a volante, told Miralda they would drive to the guard-house. But, the surprise of the girl, she soon after dis- covered that they were rapidly passing the, . i . - o. . 1 city gates, ana lmacdiately alter taey were dashing off on the road to Cerito. Then it was that she began to fearsome trick had been played upon her; and these fears were soon confirmed by the volante's turn-1 ins down the Ions allev of Ttalm.q that ImI to the estate Count Almonte. It was in vam to expostulate now; she felt that she was is the power of the reckless nobleman,' and the pretended officer and soldiers were own people, who had adopted the dis- of the Spanish army uniform. Count Almonte met her at the door, told her to fear no violence, that her wish- es should be respected in all things save her personal liberty, that he trusted, in time, to persuade her to look more- favora bly upon him, and that in all things he was her slave. She replied contemptuous ly to his words, and charged him with the cowardly trick by which he had gained control of her liberty. But she was left by herself, though watched by his orders at all times to prevent her escape. She knew very well that the power and will of Count Almonte were too strong for gether, they led to other results, until the 1 f 11 l lnaeiaugaoie lover was at last lully satis- any humble friend of hers to attempt to thwart; and yet she somehow felt a con-j scious strength in Pedro, and secretly cher-1 ished the idea that he would discover her place of confinement, and adopt some means to deliver her, The stilletto is the con-' stant companion of the lower classes, and .Miralda bad been used to wear one even in her store against contingency, but she now regarded the tiny weapon with peculiar satisfaction, and slept with it in her bo som! Small was the clue by which Tedro Mantanez discovered the trick of Count Al monte. First this was found out, then that circumstance, and these, being put to- fied that he had discovered her place of connnement msguisea as a rnar of the order of San Felipe, he sought Count Al monte's gate at a favorable moment met Miralda, cherished her with fresh hopes, and retired to arrange some certain plan for her delivery. There was time to think now; heretofore he had not permitted him self even an hour's sleep; but she was safe, ' that is, not in immediate danger, and j his feet one day, and exclaimed to himself, wIit nnt ca tlsA frATPrnnr.ornonl nA toll i him the whole truth?

"Is she thy sister?" "No, Excelencia, she is dearer still; she my betrothed." The governor, bidding him come nearer, took a golden cross from his table, and, handing it to the boatman, as he regarded him scarchingly, said, "Swear that what you have related 4e me is true, as you hope for neawnT" "I swear!" said Pedro, kneeling and a kissing the emblem with simple reverence, The governor turned to his table, wrote ' few brief lines, and, touching a bell, ! a page from an adjoining room, I whosa he ordered to send the captain of the ompt as were all who ; u " uecuoB wua me governors thelfeousehol.li' occr appeared at once, to receivc the written order, with direc- j tiol!8 to Almonte and a young j named XirzU immediately before me.

Pedro was now sum anare moned to explain some matters, and, as he entered, the governor-general turned his back for one moment as if to seek for some papers upon his table, while Miralda was pressed in the boatman's arms. It was for a moment and the next Pedro was bowing humbly before Tacon. A few me tered ments more and the governor's page re was turned, accompanied by a monk of the church of Santa Clare, with the emblems his office, "Holy father," said Tacon, "you will the hands of this Count Almonte and Miralda Estales together in the bonds of wedlock? " the s a be on free "Excelcncia!" exclaimed the count in a- mazement "Not a word, Senior; it is your part to obey." My nobility, Excelencia!" "Is forfeited!" said Tacon. Count Almonte had too many evidences before his mind's eye of Tacon's mode of V . .. mm ma administering justice ana or entorcing his J own will to dare to rebel, and he doggedly ' yielded in silence. Poor Tedro, not dar- ing to speak, was half-crazed to see the prize he had so long coveted thus about to be torn from him. In a few moments the ceremony was performed, the trembling 1 and bewildered girl not danng to thwart the governor's orders, and the priest de- clared them husband and wife. The cap itis j tain of the guard was summoned and des guise j patched with some written order, and, in ; a few subsequent moments, Count Almonte, j completely subdued and broken-spirited, was ordered to return to his plantation Pedro and Miralda were directed to remain in an adjoining apartment to that which had been the scene of this singular proce dure. Count Almonte mounted his horse, and, with a single attendant, soon passed out of the city gates. But hardly had he passed the corner of the Paseo, when a dozen musketeers fired a volley upon him, and he fell a corpse upon the road! His body was quietly removed, and the captain of the guard, who had witnessed the act, made a minute upon his order as to the time and place, and mounting his horse, rode to the governor's palace, enter- J ing the presence chamber just as Pedro and j Miralda were once more summoned before the governor. f "Eicelcncia," said the officer, returning the order, "It 13 executed "Is the couni dead.'"
