Thy fluttering wings are soft as love's first word, And fragrant as the feathers of that bird Which feeds upon the budded cinnamon. I ask thee not to work, to sigh play on. From naught that was not, was, oris deter'd; The flax that Old Fate spun thy flights have stirred. And waved memorial grass of Marathon. Play, but be gentle, not as on that day I saw them runninc down therimsofdoom With stars thou hadst been stealing while they lay Smothered in light and blue clasped to thy breast; Bring rather to me in the flrelit room A netted halcyon bird to sing of rest. II.—COMPENSATION. One launched a ship, but she was wrecked at sea; He built a bridge, but floods have borne it down; He meant much good, none camer'strange des tiny, Jlit com lies sunk, hi J. bridge bears none to town. Yet good he had not meant became his crown ; For once at work, when even as nature free From thought of good he was, or of renown. God took the work for good, and let good bo. So wakened with a trembling after sleep. Dread Mona Boa yields her fateful store; All gleaming hot the scarlet rivers creep. And fanned of great-leaved palms slip to the shore. Then stolen to nnplumbed wastes of that far deep, Lay the foundations for one island more. III.—LOOKING DOWN. Mountains of sorrow, I heard your moans. And tho moving of your pines, but we sit high On your green shoulders, nearer stoops the sky, And pure airs visit ns from all the zones. Sweet world beneath, too happy far to sigh. Dost thonlook. thus beheld from heavenly ir- thrones? No; not for all the love that counts thy stones, While sleepy with great light the valleys lie. Strange, rapturous peace! its sunshine' doth enfold My heart; I have escaped to the days divine, It seemeth as If bygone ages back had rolled. And all the eldesfpast was now, was mine. Nay, even as if Melchizedek of old Might hare come forth to us with bread and wine. "ADOPTED." - "It is very strange," uttered Blanche Periroy, slowly weaving to gether the wreath of scarlet autumn leaves with which she was decorat ing her broad-brimmed straw hat. " Yes, it is very strange," went on Hiss Penroy, musing with herself; " I know so little about him: I have only known him ten days yet when he spoke. about leaving Elm Point last night, it seemed as if all sun shine was going out of the world for rnc. , O, Blanchie! naughty, naughty little Blanchie!" ,she added, leaning',forward and apostrophizing the fair Tace mirrored in the glen stream at her feet; "is it possible that you've allowed yourself to fall in love with that tall, black-eyed young Southerner? Ten days ago I had never seen him and now!" The roses mounted up in her cheek as she wondered within her self whether Mr. Evering cared for her. "I wish I knew!" she muttered aloud. ,fKnewwhat?" demanded a calm voice, and Mr. Gilbert Evering took up a bunch of grasses on the log, and coolly seated himself beside her a straight, handsome man, with brilliant dark eyes, rather irregular features, and a deep color glowing through his olive skin. Blanche demurely looked at him; she was not to be taken by storm thus easily. "Whether it would rain to-morrow for our picnic I want to wear my white India muslin." " 6 ! the picnic: I had forgotten that; when I spoke of leaving to morrow. Of course, though, my presence or absence will make no great difference." Blanche was silent. Somehow that scarlet and brown-spotted ma ple leaf required a" great deal of ad justment in the ribbon of her hat. " Blanche shall I go or stay?" "Just as 'you please." 'No, just as somebody else pleases. Yes or no? And I fore warn you, yes means a great deal." " How much does it mean?" ques tioned Blanche, half archly, half timorously. "Even- thing!" "Then you may stay!" "My Blanche my little white daisy!" he whispered, bending his stately head over the slender hand that lav on the autumn leaves; and Blanche felt that in the golden still ness of that October dell she had turned- anew page in her life. she was very, very nappy, ana all that day she seemed to be walking through the bright mysteries of a dream. JButwith.the morning came other feelings. Alas! that, shadow should always follow sunshine in this world ot ours. " I am not disposed to be unrea sonable, Blanche," said Gilbert, in a whisper, as he arranged her white lace shawl lor her amid the merry tumult of the picnic ground; "but I do think you have waltzed quite enough with that puppy, Birming him!" " Jealous already, Gilbert?" taunt ed the girl, flushed and rosy with triumphs oi her beauty, ana tne ir resistible instincts of coquetry. She colored crimson. " Of course, you will do as you please, Blanche; only I warn you, it is a choice between W alter .Birming ham and me. JYou dance with him ajrain at your own risk." At the same instant young Birm ingham came up. "May I have the pleasure of this polka with you, Miss Jfenroy: ' And Blanche, defiant and wilful, and a little piqued, answered "Yes!" and glided away with her little hand on Walter Birmingham's shoulder. Gilbert had no business to be un reasonable. His crave, stern face rather startled her as she came once more to the rustic scat of twisted boughs, when the string band of music was silent, and Mr. Birmingham had gone to bring her a glass of iced iemonade. "(jilueit, whv do you look so cross?" " Because I have reason. 1 am sorry you pay so little attention to my wishes, Miss I'cnroy." .She drew herself up haughtily. "You are beginning to dictate carlv, sir." " "Have I not the right?" " Nothing of the sort, Mr. Evering."- " Be it so, Blanche," ho said, in a voice that betrayed how deep the ar row rankled in his bosom. "I give up the right now and henceforward." Blanche was startled.f She would have said more, but Walter Birm ingham was advancing toward her, and when next she had leisure to look around, Gilbert was gone from her side. " What have I done?" she thought in dismay; 'Til see him in the evening, and coax him into good humor once more. He surely can't be vexed at me for an idle word like that" Ah, little Blanche, it is not the well considered sentence that does all the harm in this world it is the idle word. "Such a charminc day as we have had, Mrs. Traine," said Blanche, as she came up the steps of the hotel piazza, as smiling and radiant as it the worm remorse was not gnawing at her heart. " That, of course," said the bloom ing matron who was reading in an easy chair under the shadow of the vines. "But what sent Mr. Evering away in such a hurry?" "bent him away f " Yes, by the evening train. - He came home, packed his things, and drove away as if there' was not a moment to lose. I am very sorry, we shall miss him so much." .Blanche went slowly up-staira and sat down by her window, looking out at the purple glow of the eve ning landscape as if it were a fea tureless blank. So he was really gone away, and by her own .folly she had lost the priceless treasure ot Gilbert Evering's love. "And 1 cannot even write to him, for I do not know his address," she thought, with clasped hands and tearless eyes. "Well,-it is my own fault, and I must abide the conse quences as best I may." Blanche "enroy went home from the gay summer lounging place a sadder and a wiser woman: and the November mists drooping o'er the brick .and mortar wilderness of her New York home, had never seemed half so dreary to her as they seemed now! "T shall now be orr-old mardr' thought Blanche, walking up and down the fire light darkness of her twilight drawingroom, and her dimpled hands clasped behind her waist. " I shall never care for any one now as I cared for for Gilbert; and I dare say I shall keep a cat, and grow fond of green tea and scandal sewing circles! Ah,well-a-day! life cannot last forever!" She rang the bell with an impa tient jerk. "Are there anv letters. Bander- son?' " One, ma'am; it came by the eve ning post about five minutes ago." Blanche sat down by the fire and opened the letter. "Black-edged and black-sealed! So poor 'Mrs. Marchmont is gone at last ! " It was from the executors of Miss Penroy's distant cousin, formally and .briefly announcing her death, which had taken place in one of the West India, islands some month's since, but of which the "melancTioly news," as the letter- ran, had only just been received. It was not' en tirely unexpected, as Mrs. March mont had been for some years slow ly fading out of the world, a victim to hereditary consumption. "Leaving one child, a son," slowly repeated Blanche, leaning her cheek on. her hand, and looking down into the.fiery quiver of the red-hot coals. 'fPoor little fellow! he must feel nearly as desolate and alone as I do ! only I have one advantage I have at least a sufllcicncy of this world's goods; and' this orphan child must be thrown penniless and alone on his own resources; for, if Iremem ber aright, Mrs. Marchmont for feited all the wealth of her first mar riage by her second alliance with the poverty-stricken lawyer whose death plunged her into such bitter mourn ing. That was a genuine love-match, yet how much grief and trouble it brought with it, "leaving one child, a son!" Why should I not adopt the stray waif, and make a business of my life to cherish and comfort him? I have'no object in existence there is one that Providence itself seems to point out to me." Unce more she rang the bell, with a fresh color glowing in her cheeks, and a new light in her eyes. " Bring in my writing case imme diately, Sanderson, and get ready to take a letter to the post for me as soon as possible." The old servant obeyed, wonder ing at his mistress' unwonted energy and yet well pleased to see some of her old animation returning. It was a very Bimple and uncon scious letter that Blanche Penroy wrote to her ''far" away" cousin's" ex ecutors from the fulness of her heart: " I shall never marry now," she wrote; "and.it seems to become.my plainly indicated duty to undertake the care of this orphan child of Mrs, Marchmont s. with your approval, therefore, I propose to adopt, him, and endeavor, as far as is m my power, to supply the place of his lost mother. You may at first deem me young to undertake so grave and serious a responsibility; but I was nineteen last month, and am very much older in thouoht and feeline than my years. Of course, ,at my deatu tue child will inherit the property' which was left me by my deceased parents." "I hope my cousin's executors are like the nice, white headed old lawyers one reads about in novels." said Blanche to herself, as she folded the little perfumed sheet of pink paper, talking of "expediency" and appropriate, "fori do so much want somebody to love and care for: and somehow I've a sort of premonition that this little fellow will be nice and rosy and lovable. I think I'll teach him to call me nunty!" Just a week subsequently, a prim, legal note was received lrom Messrs. Alias and Corpus, the deceased la dy's executors, stating that "they saw no valid objection to Miss Pen roy's very laudable project, and that. in accordance thereto, the child of the late Mrs. Marchmont would ar rive at Miss Penroy's residenco on the following Saturday night." " Saturday night and this is Fri day," ejaculated Blanche, with anew brightness dancing in her hazel eyes. "O, how glnd I shall be! Sanderson, tell Mrs. Brown to have the blue room fittrd up immediately for Mas tcr Marchmont, and you had better go yourself to the depot with the carriage, at five to:morrow after noon, to meet him." "Yes, ma'am," said Sanderson, stolidly. 'The; apparition' of a great unruly boy tramping with muddy boots" on "the velvet carpets, and haunting the house with ball and marbles, and lung-spitting halloes, did not possess the charm to San derson's eyes that it 'seemed to his mistress. "And even patient Mrs. Brown remarked with a species of exasperation, that "she. didn't see what put this freak into Miss Blanche's' head.' Saturday was a day of hail and tempest and softly falling snow, and by hvc o'clock the drawing-rooms were.lishted,.and tho crimson silk curtain closely drawn to exclude the stormy darkness without, aix times within the last fifteen minutes had Blanche Penroy 'looked at her watch as she stood by the fire wait ing to ,hear ,the returning carriage wheels. She was dressed in a rich China bine silk dress, with pearl pin and ear drops; and a little point lace at her. throat" and wrists; and the color in her cheeks, and the golden glimmer .in, her bright, hair, made her, unconsciously, "very fair to look upon." " O, I hope he will like me,' thought Blanche, with the instinc tive yearningjfor love that comes to every woman's heart, as the door opened. "Here's the vounr gentleman, Miss," said Sanderson, with a half- suppressed sound, between' laugh and a snort. But instead of a child seven or eight years ,old, a tall apparition stalked in, something over six feet high, with a- black moustache, and merry hazel eye's brimming over with mirth. For an instant Blanche stared at him, as if she could hardly credit the evidence of her own senses. ' " Gilbert!" "Exactly. You wanted to adopt me, and here I am." "No, but, Gilbert " '-Yes, but, Blanche!" " You are not Mrs. Marchmont'a "I am by her first marriage. And although, I amby.no means the penniless infant you seemed to sup pose, as all my father's wealth comes to me, I am quite willing to be adoptedTT-particularly as you are not married to Walter Bermingham." Blanche struggled between her tears and laughter, uncertain which could best express her feelings, but Gilbert drew her tenderly to mm. " If you adopt me, dearest, it must be for life. ,Nay, do not hesi tate our happiness ' has already been too' much at the mercy of trifles. You will not 'retract your offer?" " Well, after all," said Blanche, demurely, "all I wanted was some one to love and care for and " " And I shall do very well in that capacity, eh?" And Sanderson, who had been listening diligently at the door, crept down stairs to inform Mrs. Brown that "they were going to have a new master. Railroad Signals. The varieties of the "toot" of the locomotive, and gyrations of the conductors by day, ,or lanterns by night, .are about as intelligible to most people, as first class Choctaw. The following will give the reader a correct idea of their signification : One whistle "Down, brakes." Two whistle?" Off brakes." Three whistles "Back up." A rapid succession of short whistles is the cattle alarm, at which thebrakes will always he put down. A sweeping parting of the hands on level of the eye, is a signal to 'go-ahead. A downward motion of the hand, with extended arms, "to stop." A beckoning motion of one hand "to .back." A lantern raised and. lowered ver tically, is a signal for "starting;" swung'at right angles, or cross-ways the track, "to stop;" swung in a cir cle, "to back the train." A, red flag waved upon the track must be regarded as a signal of danger, bo ot other signals given with energy. Hoisted at a station, .is a signal for a train "to stop." Stuck up by the roadside, it is a signal of danger on the train, ahead. Carried unfurled upon an engine is a warning that another engine or train is on its way. A Christian Wife. How fitting to begin with those who are at once the centre of the do mestic circle, and the source of that influence which'binds all its mem bers into one. Households there may be, well-ordered, and abounding in comfort; families there may be whose various members live in har mony and love; bnt 'homes, in their true sense, there- cannot be where there is not within i its, inner circle one whom manly choice Has made a wife, and infant lips have learned to honor with the name of mother. She may not be, in common accep tation, tho "head" of the household. But if she is not the head of the fam ily, she is the heart. In her more bidden sphere originates the tido of love, whoso beating pulse is leit in every part, dispensing life and cheer fulness to every member. Herself subject-to authority, even her obedi ence becomes tributary to her pow er. And tho same Gospel which enjoins the submission, has exalted her upon the throne of love, and in its own true spirit' taught her how to overcome by gentleness, and to rule by meekness and lowliness of heart.

Catacombs. The catacombs of Paris are ex tensive subterraneous galleries, to which you descend from the build ings orf the western side of the bariere cCenfer The 'name itself which has been given to thisJaby rinth of caverns and galleries,- from its resemblance .to. the asylums and places of refuge of the persecuted Christians under Naples and Borne, informs us of the purpose to-which it had been - applied since' 1786. Thes.e galleries were originally the quarries from which materials were excavated for constructing the edi fices of the capital. The weight of the superincumbent houses, .ren dered it necessary to prop them; and when tho cemeteries of the do-, molished, churches and the burying groundswere cleared, in 1786,. the government resolved to deposit the bones in these quarries, which were consecrated for that purpose. The relics of ten generations were here united, in the repose of the grave. Eight .times as great as the living tide that rolls over this spot is it3 subterranean population. By the light of wax tapers, you descend ninety feet to a world of silence, over which the Parisian police keep j watch as strictly as over the world of noise and confusion above. You enter a gallery, where1 two can just go abreast. A black streak on the stones ot which the walls consist point out the way, which, from .the great number of interesting by- passages, it would be dilncult to re trace without this aid or without guides. The plain of Montrouge and the great suburb St. Jacques, as St. Germain, and according to some, the channel of the beme, are thus undermined. Among the curiosities of this. part of that lower world is a planet the. harbor of Mahon, which in .his hours of leisure, an ingenious soldier faithfully copied from mem ory, in the material of the quarries. You finally enter the halL whence you are ushered into the' realms of death by the inscription which once stood over the entrance to the churcnyartt or 5t. "Snrpicer "Jm ultra metas requieseantbeatamspem expectantes; INarrow passages be tween walls of skeletons; chambers in which mausoleums, altars! caridel- abras, constructed of human bones, with festoons of skulls and thigh bones, interspersed occasionally with inscriptions not always the most happily selected, from ancient and modern authors, excite the gloomy impression which is always pro duced even in the most light-minded by the sight of the dissolution of the human irame. fatigued wita these horrible embellishments, you enter a simple chapel, in which there are no bones, and containing, an al tar of granite. The inscription' D. M. II et III September. MDCCX CII, recalls to memory the victims of those mournful days, and whose remains are here united. 'It is the only spot in the whole labyrinth that speaks immediately to the heart of everybody. Un, leaving tnese rooms, consecrated to..death, where, however, the air is always preserved purabv means of secret passages, you may visit a geological cabinet, formed by Mr. Hancourt de inury, the director of the carrieres Sous Paris, who also published a descrip tion of them in 1815. Specimens of the minerals furnished by the re gions you have traversed, and a. col lection of diseased bones, in a con tiguous hall, scientifically arranged, are the last curiosities which these excavations offer. In Rome there is a Franciscan church, under which, for centuries, the bones of the monks of .the, convent, and of many persons who think their eternal hap piness will be promoted by their burial there, have been preserved, in geniously arranged in columns, al tars, arches, garlands, festoons and architectural ornaments. Every year mass is read there. The Oldest City the World. Damascus is (he oldest city in the world. Tyre and Sidon have'erum bled on the shore: Baalbec is a ruin; Palmyra lies buried in the .sands of the desert; Nineveh and Babylon have disappeared from the shore of tne xigns anu Aupnratcs. uaiuas-cus-remains what it was before the day of Abraham a center, of trade and travel, an island of verdure in a desert, a "predestined capital," with martial and .sacred associations ex tending beyond th'rtr" centuries. It was near Damascus that Saul of Tarsus saw the light from heaven above the brightness of the sun; the street, which is called btraight, in which it is said he "prayeth," still runs through the city, the caravan comes and goes as it did one thou sand years ago; there is still the sheik, the ass and the water-wheel, the merchants of the Mediteranean and the Euphrates still occupy these, with the multitude of their .wares. The city which Mahomet surveyed from a neighboring height, and was afraid to enter, "because it is given to men to have but one paradise, and, for his part ho was resolved not to have it in this world," is this day when Julian called it the "Eve of the East," as it was, in the time of Isaiah, "the head of Syria." It is still a city of flowers and bright waters; the streams from Leb anon, the "rivers of Damascus,"" the "river of gold," still murmurs and sparkles in the wilderness of Siriah Gardens. From Damascus comes our dam son, our blue plums, and the deli cious anricot of Portugal called dam- asco: damask; or beautiful fabric of cotton and silk, with vines and flow ers raised upon its smooth, bright ground; the damask rose introduced into England in tho time of Henry VII.; tho damask blade, so famous the world over for its keen edge and remarkable elasticity, the secret of the manufacture of which was lost when Tamerlane carried off tho ar tists into l'ersia; and the beautiful art of inlaying wood and steel with silver, gold, a kind of mosaic engra ving and sculpture united, called damaskeering, with which books and bureaus, swords and guns are ornamented. A stranger observing an ordinary roller rule on the table, took it up, and ou inquiring its use was answer ed "It is a rule forcouuting-houses.' Too well bred, as ho construed po liteness, to ask unnecessary ques tions, ho turned it over and over, up and down rencatcdl v. and in a parox ism of ballled curiosity inquired "How in the name of wonder do you count houses with this?"

Put doe's this make the real great- ricss and goodness of a man? Polite-1 ness.and suavity, and a willingness to make one's self agreeable under, every ordinary circumstance, is a commendable'quality; but if a man possess nothing more than this, he is only a happy ornament in the world. 1 The quality of politeness' 'every man'should.cultivate; yet this is not the thing which makes a man. It certainly adds to his popularity, and' consequently to his suciess in an' enterprise that needs the influence and assistance, of the people; "but it does not discipline him for severe! trials, and build him up again with hope in case of important failures.

Cor. San Francisco Paper. A Contented Mind. A breeder of merino sheep in Ver mont had a large native, cosset which he valued highly. His son came in one morning and informed him that the old. cosset had twins. '-'Indeed," says he,-"I am. glad. She will Bring up two as well as one. Soon after, the son reported one of the twins dead. The father replied that the "one left would be worth more in the Fall than both." In the afternoon came the intelligence that the other lamb was dead. "I am glad," said he, "now I can fatten the old sheep." The next day the old cosset was reported dead. "That is just what I wanted. Now I have got rid of the breed. Not Bad. Smart lawyers sometimes find their match, and often when they least expect shrewdness, A "green horn" from the monntains occasion ally carries too many guns for them, as the following anecdote illustrates : A very green looking specimen of the genus Yankee,fresh from the ru ral districts, was on the stand, ana a pert young limb of the law propo sed to have a little fun at the ex pense of Jonathan, who seemed un usually unsophisticated.-butyet told a straightforward story.like a honest man. During the progress of the examination the lawyer asked the witness who made him, and was an swered, very much to the amuse ment of the spectators, that Moses made liini. The pleasantry was con tinued for a short time, wheu the verdant witness seemed inclined to enjoy his right to ask a questions. "Wall stranger,'' he drawled out, with a nasal twang, "Iwanttoknow who made you." The lawyer, enjoy ing the fun, and to continue the same idea, answered that Aaron made him. Jonathan worked his countenance into a rougish expression, and said, "Wall, I know wo read in the good Book that Aaron made a calf, but I didn't know that the tarnal critter had got here." Tho laugh was now turned on the lawyer, who was ready to treat all witnesses respectfully, no matter how untidy their outside appearance which he became convinced Is not always an index of what it covers.
