From tha broad river's tangled brim, la silence the brown bearers swim To hear thy charming roondelay. Nations of insects buzz thy praise. To them thou art like hope returned, A bird whose breast with lore has burned, tJschilled through all the stormy days, A man delights to hear thy strain Oh, aome aad bnild thy house near mine, Ia tree or bosh, or clinging Tine, Where berries blush ia fields of grain. Oh, come and aerer take thy flight Thy yellow bill aad bosom red , Thy shady wings aad dusky head. Are erer welcome to my sight. Miscellaneous.

Some say Tom grew a little crack-brained in his older days, and that, fancying .his end approaching, he had his horse newly ghod, saddled and bridled, with his feet up- permost, because that, at tbe last, the world would be turned upside down, in which case he would find the horse ready for mounting and be was determined at tbe worst to give bis friend a run for it.

He had lefvhia Bible at tbe bottom of his coat pocket, and his big Bible on the desk, burned under tbe mortgage he was about to foreclose never was a poor sinner taken more unawares. The black man wbisped him like a child astride of the horse, and away he gallopped in the midst or a thunder-storm. The clerks stuck their pens behind their ears.and stared after him from the windows. Away went lorn walker dashing .down tbe street, bis steed striking fire out of the pavements at every bound.

On the 12th of March 1859, Mr. Bilansky died suddenly, and arsenic was found in bis stomach. It was proved that Mrs. B purchased arsenic, and she was convicted of the murder. The alleged motive was to gel possession of Bilanksy's property, and enjoy it with her pamnrourJ The Min nesota Legislature passed a resolution to commute tbe sentence of death to life lm prisonment, but tbe Governor vetoed it. she was executed on the 23d of March, and the scene on the scaffold the last act of this terrible tragedy is thus de scribed: "When the prisoner arrived upon the m a -... . i .l platform she was led forward and kneeled npon the drop; the clergy, jailor, aud the oisiers and otner ladies, in tbe same pos ture around ber.

It should borne in mind that this decease person waa a mere casual acquaintance of Vr Cogs well, not an intimate friend, and since death .Dr. Cogswell had not thought bim. But the apparition was in the presence of a man not easily scared. The librarian, so fai from famting or shrieking, as might reasonably be expected, calmly addressed the ghost : Dr. , said be "you seldom, ever, visited this .Library while living. Why do you trouble us now when dead Perhaps tbe ghost did not like the sound of the human voice; any way, it gave no answer, but disappeared. Ibe next day Mr. Cogswell thought over the matter, attributed it to some optical delusion, and in the evening proceeded witb his work as usual. Again be wished to re fer to some books, nu again visited the southwestern alcove. There again as large as life, was tbe ghost, very calmly and placidly surveying the shelves, Mr. Cogs well again spoke to it: "Dr. , said he, "again I ask you why von who never visited the Library while living, trouble it when dead P Again the ghost vanished: and the un daunted librarian pursued his task' without interruption. The next day he examined the shelves before which the aparition had been standing, and by a singular coinci dence found that they were filled with books devoted to detnonology, witchcraft, magic, spiritualism, dec. borne of these books are rare tomes, several centuries old, written in Latin, illustrated with quaint diagrams, and redolent of misticism; while the next shelves are their vouncnr broth. ren, tbe neat spruce works of modern spir- itualistS) of Briltan, Davis, Edmons and others. The very titles on these books are suggestive. These are the Prophecies or Prognostications of Michael Nostradamus, folio published in London in 1672; Al bamasar de Conjeclionibna; Kerner'a Maji kon ; Godwin's Lives of the Necromancers; Glanvil on Witches and Aparitions; Cor nelius Agripna; Bodin'a Dempnomania; Lilly's Astrology and others, a perusal of of which would effectually murder the sleep of a person of ordinary nerve for at least half a dozen nights. It was these volumes that appeared to attract the appa rition. The third night Mr. Cogswell, still de termined that tbe shade, spirit delusion or effect of indigestion whatever it soight be should not interfere with bis duties, again visited the various books te which wished to refer to, and when occasion demanded, did not fail to approach the .- 1..-. tl.. . -i : mjrauu aiHjm. 4. ut; a again was me sppa- rition, dressed precisely as before, in a gen-; tleman's usual costume, as natural as life. with a iand raised, as if about to take . hook.

I Cogswell related the circumstances as above recorded, as nearly as we can learn, above eighteen or twenty persons were present, the remarkable story of course soon spread about. A number of Jit men, iucuaing an eminent historian and others, heard ihe recital, and though they attributed Mr. Cogswell's ghost-seeing to strain and tension of his nerves during too protracted labors at the catalogue, yet confess that the story bas its re- markable phases. Both Mr. Cogswell and deceased physician were persons of a practical lurn of mind, and always treated marvelous ghost stories sometimes set with deserved contempt. And, aa were not at all intimate, it will be at a curious question for the psveholo- to determine, why the idea of this de- gentleman should come to Mr. Cogs- brain and resolved itself into an ap- parition, wben engaged in dry, statistical I labors, which should effectually banish all of I thoughts of the marvellous.: T.T v.
