day before yesterday by Governor Dennison, to
imprisonment for life. We are not lure that

an example of thia kind, it ia muoh easier to
die than to be an exeoutioner.

The Week which, with as, has just died, was
born on a beautiful sight The sky tbiokly
studded with stars smiled a benign welcome
upon mo new-comer irom ine realm of Time,
and the morn that followed Aurora daneed
gaily on the eastern hilie and filled the atmoe
pbere with the delicious balminess of bar
breath. . .
The youth of the departed Hebdomad was
fall of life and vigor, and the dreamy Dave
seemed to exist only that they might beautify
Mm. Ia his middle age he wept sad and sor
rowing tears, for ha saw as all sooner or later
must see that life waa inane, and that happi
ness was not upon the planet to whioh he had
been doomed.
Later in his life he became atern and aol
emn, and marched to hie fate with heavy
tread. The North wind chilled him to the
very soul, and although the aky looked bright,
and the ahinlng spheres accompanied him
with their delightful harmonies, their music
pleased not him, and he listened in pensive
eilenoe to the lovely variation of Nature's
eternal anthem. The stare sang to him when
he died, in pity, seemingly, at hia frosty fate,
aad the low, wisred requiem the breeis is sigh
ing e'er his tomb, is, as we write, a fitting
death-song for one whose life aaw so muoh
beautiful sadness.
During the lifetime of the Week, the eity
waa unusually gsy and its prinolpal thorough
fares were daily crowded with elegant and
fashionably-dressed ladies, who made it bright
as the sunshine in which they glittered.
Business was brisk among the eholesale mer
chants, aad the blue sky seemed to yield them
yellow earth, while the Nighta brought dreams
aweet as their own glowing faces.
The theaters, leoture-rooms and other places
ef amusement were well attended; the Hotels
were thronged with visitors and strangers;
balls, parties and routs were resorted to by our
eltlaens, who pleasantly danced through the
darkened Honrs, and laughed at the sad face
of the Week aa he eynineally and snseringly
wandered by them into the Past.
