ALICE CARV'S LOVE.
Tbe Fans Abont Ifsr Kslntlous
wltla Bnlus W. Hrlswold.
A story under the title of the " Un
known Jjove of Alice Cary," in the news
paper!, il still traveling through the
length of the laud. It axsertt that in
her youth ihe was allianced to Uufus W.
Oriswold; that he was. false to her for
saking her for a woman of the world;
that long after, when he returned to New
York, friendless, poor and sick, she for
gave him th great 'wrong that he had
done, and nursed him till he died. This
story, in many conflicting phases, was
often, to her annoyance, told of her du
ring her life. , The fact that Uufus W.
Griswold did in his will bequeath to her
bis personal effects .was .made much of
iq print and, privaM circles and used as
an unanswerable proof that at one time
he had been her lover. Within a week
I have read in a letter to the New York
Evening Post that the will proved the
love and relationship between the two
persons beyond a doubt. Yet no less,
in its foundation, the story is false, lie
ferring to it once, while we two sat alone
together'Alioe said teuisi'"! will tell
you just the truth. If you evar think it
necessary, you can tell it." I believe it
to be but justice to her sacred life, with
which idle gossip is yet too busy, to tell
it Dow. .Bereavement in death and in
life hud made her Western home too
desolate to be borne. These, with the
impulsiJof the brave will that served her
to the last, brought' her to New York to
make not the life that she would have
chosen for herself, ' yet a life worthy to
be lived. " Ignorance stood me in the
stead of 'courage," she said. ' "Had 1
known the great world as 1 have learned
it since, I should not have dared; but I
didn't. Thus I came." The leading
litterateur at that time was Dr. Hui'us
Griswold. He had compiled the books
called The Female lJrose Writer, and
The Female 1'oet of America. " He was
sharply on the look-out for every new
genius in literature that appciired. He
had visited the sisters in their Ohio
home, "and in 1830 obtained a publisher
for their lint volume, and :had added
both their names with selections from
their nocms to his own I'oeUi of America.
He knew everything necessary to their
success in the sphere of labor which
they had chosen, while they practically
knew next to- nothing. He encouraged
and helped them in many ways, and thus
commanded tlieir gratitude. For Alice
to iucnr, a delrt ot gratitude was to pay
it,'; if at the oost of her life. Yet the
good will of one type ol man to a woman
is often a misfortune. Her soul may be
white as snow; yet he cannot take her
innocent name upon his lips without
smirching it with somewhat of his own
vileness, Uis vanity has been flattered
by idle women till conquest has been
not only the habit, but the neces
sity of his morbid and miserable
soul, till, where he knows he has not
won it, he yet is base enough to
boast of it. Such a man (judging by
every record left by him) was Uufus W.
Griswold. He was a man of poetic tem
neratuent. of fine scholarship, of gener
ous impulses, and in certain directions,
at rare gilts; yet no less ne was a man
of fickle fancies, of violent temper,
hick oiren lell upon uis dearest tnends,
of monstrous vanity, and of ungovcrned
passions. " I was never engaged to him
in marriage; I never loved him," said
Alice Cary to me. 1 couia not iibvo
loved sm:h a man. thoueh I learned him
in his best phases. I came to pity him,
because he was his own worst enemy.
As a friend I owed him much, and be
fore his death I found it in m7 power, to
pay buck in part my large debt of grati
tude. When he returned to New York,
poor, and sick, with certain death betoro
him, I, with Miss , hired a room
and nurse for him. From that they have
made tho romantic story of my nursing
him for unrequited love. It was old
Betsy who nursed him. You know how
hier and stronir she is: yet even she be
came worn out, for his sickness was long
and very painlul. Many unkind, even
cruel things have been said because he
willed to me his personal effects, lie
sides the books and pictures which he
bequeathed to the Historical Society,
these were all tbat he possessed, and he
left them to me not moro out of personal
regard than for a desire to repay as far
as he was able the money which I
had expended for his comlort during
his last long sickness." Iu the
profoundest sense Alice Cary never
loved but once. The man she loved is
still alive, yet gossip, with its keenest
scent, has never found or named him.
With all her fullness of affection, hers
wasi an eclectic and solitary soul. He
who, by the very patent of his being was
mre to her than any other mortal could
be, might pass from her life, but no
other could ever tuke his place. A
proud and prosperous family brought all
their pride and power to bear on a son
to prevent his marrying a girl unedu
cated, rustic and poor. " I waited for
one who never oama back," she said;
"yet 1 believed he would come, till I
read in a paper his marriage to another.
Can you' think what life would be lov
ing one, waiting for one who would never
come?" He did come at last. I saw
him. His wife had died. Alice was
dying. The gray-haired man sat down
beside the gray-haired womau. Life
had dealt prosperously with him, as is
its want with men. Suffering and death
had taken all from her, save the luster
of her wondrous eyes. From her wan
and wasted fkc they shone upon him
full of tenderness and youth. Thus they
met with life behind them they who
parted plighted lovers, when life was
young.,, Ha was the man whom she for
gave for her blighted and weary life,,
with a smile of parting as divine as ever
lit tbe face of woman. Mary Clemmer
Ames.
SJraaat aad Pcmdletoa.
From the Bangor (Maine) Democrat.
It is a subject of universal remark
that the presence of General Grant in
this city last week elicited no hearty
enthusiasm. The multitude present to
see a 1'retidrnt of the I nited States was
great, numbering many thousands. No
President had ever before been east of
the Kenebec river. It was an event
not only of a lifetime, but of a century.
With thousands it was the first, and
probably the last, opportunity to see a
I'reniiliiiL 10 a very large extent it
was the official, and not toe man, who
drew together the multitude. Curiosity,
and not admiration, assembled the
throng. Had Juarez of Mexico. Alex
ander of Uussia, or William of Prussia
been announced to visit liangor, curi
osity would have brought together the ,
same thousands.
But where were the hearts of the peo
ple as Grant passed along the streets
among them? Why were there no spon
taneous, hearty cheers along the whole
rout of tbe procession? Everything
which money could do, and ingenuity
devise, to awaken enthusiasm, and call
forth plaudits, had been done. There
were music, decorations, military dis
play andbannera without limit. Indeed,
there was everything to make the welkin
rir, wi'.h huzzas, txcept the lean.
Ia contrast, we call to mind another
sceue which transpired in this city three
years ago. A simple newspaper in
ouncement had been mi je that a young
statesman of the great Northwe.t rcnij
arrive in Bangor on a certain summer
eveninz. He held no official DOBition;
but he-had spoken words which had sunk
deep into the hearts of his countrymen.
There had been no particular organiza
tion for his reception; but there was such
an outpouring of the masses of the peo
rj e as the Penobscott Valley had never
before witnessed. There tbey were, of
all ages and of both sexes, by hundreds
and by thousands, not as mere idle spec
tutors, but to testify their love and re
spect for a statesman who had spoken
in their behalf against oppression and
wrong.
Who can describe the feverish anxiety
with which that great multitude awaited
the arrival of the train that evening?
And when at last it did arrive, and when
(ieo. Pendleton appeared upon the plat
form of the car in which he rode, who
can describe the thunder of those tre
mendous and long -continued cheers
which burst simultaneously from tbe lips
of those assembled thousands? Who,
that was present on that marked occa
sion, will ever forget the scene of the
passage of his carriage from the depot
to the Bangor House how that great
throng pressed it on every side how in
their excitement they lifted it from the
ground and how, all the time, all along
the route, without a moment s cessation
the cheers continued to riBO and fall and
roll like the sea?

Paris Correspondent (November 12) of the
New York World.)
Uumors continue as to an approaching
departure ot the .Tope troin Koine, ihe
France of to-day says distinctly that the
Pope has intimated to President Thiers
that it is his intention to estublish a
residence in France, and that M. Thiers
has tninle a strong eliort to dissuade the
Holy Father from his purpose without
success, and has finally placed at his
disposal the castle at Pau.
In the Lower Pyrenees, almost on the
confines of France and Spain, is the
"City of Stakes," which, since its birth
in the tenth century, has more than once
been identineu with illustrious royal per
sonages historically sometimes, though
nut always in good fortune. In beauty
of surroundings it is fit even for the
exile of an aged aud much suffering
pontiff ; iu heallhfulness it wants nothing
to recommend it; and if Plo Nono, de
nied access to his Villa of Castle Gau
dolfo aud imprisoned in his Vatican
palace, should seek a palace outside
Home in which to die, few more delight
ful places could be offered by the chief
executive ot Prance than the Chateau
de Pau.
It has been a favorite retreat of Na
poleon III. in the summer months, and
it was from its chateau that Isabella of
Spain issued her protest aguinst the ir
reversible decision by which her throne
was given to a stranger to Spuin and the
Spanish people. But its fame is more
ancient than that which it derives from
association with the names of two mon
nrcks who have so recently "gone out of
business." There is still" to be seen
within its walls notwithstanding all the
changes of three centuries a, room
which, through all these changes, has re
mained the same, with its furniture un
disturbed, and stilj unbroken the tor
toise shell which cradled tho first Bour
bon, the greatest ruler of France
not less great even than his grand
sou the Grand Monarch. Here a Queen,
Joan of Navarre, in a rude time aud sur
rounded by few comforts which her sta
tion or her state demanded, waB cheered
in her sorest trial by her sturdy old fa
ther, who bade her chant the war-songs
of her fathers. She obeyed, and its
notes, poured firmly and unfaltering
from her, were the first sounds which
greeted the victor of Ivry. It is a curi
ous coincidence that Henry of Navarre,'
the first Bourbon, and the Spanish Isa
bella, the last, should mark epochs in
their lives by their associations with the
Chateau de Pau. It was here, too, that
Dernadutte, King of Sweden, and Gaston
de Foix were born.
The town is the capital of tbe depart
ment of the Basses Pyrenees. It is
built on the Gave de Pau, on a very high
and difficult hill, commanding a mag
nificent prospect. It is about lour hun
dred and seventy miles from Paris. Its
population is less than 20,00(1, and its
manufactures are not extremely impor
tunt if that Bearnais cloth be excepted.

AX EXPLOSION SEEX 95,000,000

A Knlar Exploaioti Wonderful Ap,
peiirnnce of m Hydrogen Claud.
from tbe Alhany Evening, Journal. 1
On the 7th of last September- Prof.
Young, of Dartmouth College, was ex
amining, by means of his spectroscope,
an enormous (lame or hydrogen cloud
on the eastern border of the sun; it was
farmed of nearly hori.ontal filaments,
with its lower surface li.OOU miles above
the visible border of the sun, to which it
was connected by three or four bright
vertical columns. Tbe length of this
cloud was 100,0110 miles, and its vertical
thickness 54,000 miles.
It had presented this form and these
dimensions at the noon of the preceding
day. He left the telescope at 12:'M
p.m., and on returning in less than half
an hour he was surprised to find that
during that interval "the whole thing
had been literally torn to shreds by some
unconceivable' uprush from beneath."
In place, he says, of the quiet cloud I
had left, the cloud, if I may use the ex
pression, was filled with sir debris, a
mass of detached, verticle, fusiform fila
ments. When I first looked, some of
hem had already reached hight of
of 100,000 miles, and while I watched
them they rote with amotion almost im
perceptible to the eye, until in ten min
utes, the uppermost were more than
200,(V)0 n.iles above the solar surface.
As the filaments rose they gradually
faded away like a dissolving cloud, and
at 1 :15 p.m. only a few flimsy whisps,
with some lighter streamers, low down
near the cromosphere, remained to mark
the place. But in the meanwhile the
little "thunderhead " before alluded to
had growa and developed wonderfully
into a niass of rolling aud everchanging
Hame, to speak according to appearance.
First it was crowded down, as it were,
along tho solar surface: later it rose al
most pyramidally 50,000 miles in hight;
then its summit was drawn out into long
filamenta and threads, which were most
curiously rolled backward and downward
like the volutes of an ionic capital, and
finally it faded away, and by 2.M) p.m.
had vanished like the other.
Whether the fine aurora
borcalis which succeeded in tbe evening
was really the earth a response (he re
fers to the supposed physical connection
between the disturbance of the earth a
magnetism and changes in the atmos
phere of the sun) to this magnified out
burst of the aun is perhaps on?rain,
but the coincir-e is at lea-! sunirTStive,
and may easily btcc. -raeth:.ng more,
if, as I somewhat confidently expect to
learn, the Greenwich magnetic record
indicates a disturbance precisely simul-ta-ipr.'H

somnambulism occurred in this city, the
victim being a young lady ot eighteen,
of good family and prepossessing an
pearance. She had the habit of getting
up in her sleep and going about the
bouse at night, alter all bad retired, al
ways returning to her room, however,
without disturbing the family. On the
evening mentioned the fair sleep-walker
arose about midnight, and with lighted
lamp commenced to explore the house.
In one room was a young man, a friend
of her father's who had arrived that
evening, and among the chambers vis
ited was bis apartment The door lead
ing into the room beiug unlocked, the
unconscious young lady, with a lamp in
her hand, entered tho room, nnd while
the visitor was in the arms of Morpheus,
gathered his clothes, coat, pants, vest
aud boots, even to his hat not leaving a
garment to clothe his frame, and deposit
ed them in the kitchen, turning the dish
pan over the duds. Her father, hearing
the noise made by handling the pan, dis
covered the somnambulist and witnessed
the singular proceeding, and without
being detected followed the sleeping
girl back to her room, saw her put out
the light, lock the door and retire. Com
prehending the situation at once, he,
without notifying his wife, went to bed.
The young man was called to breakfast
next morning. He answered the sum
mons from the closed door, but the
family waited until the breakfast got
cold, impatient at the length of time it
took ithe young man to make his toilet.
Mr. enjoying the joke, and seeing
the unconscious cause quietly seated in
the dining-room, could keep in no longer.
Going to the kitchen he lifted up the
dish-pan and exhibited the wardrobe of
tho turdy guest. It is unnecessary to
add an explanation had to be made to the
clothlcss yousg man up stairs, who hud
been seurching in vain for the missing
garments. There was very little break
fenit eaten Friday morning in that
house, and of those about the table the
somnambulist was not counted in.
Christ Church, Boston, is the oldest
church edifice in that city, its corner
stone having been laid in 1728. When
George II. was King he manifested his
iuterest iu Christ Chhrch by giving it a
communion service, a pulpit Bible and
frayer books, all of which are still used,
t had an organ in 17:iG, and the oldest
chime of bells in the country, which are
still musical and serviceable, was placed
in its tower in 1741. It was the fashion
able church of Boston one hundred and
twenty-five years Bgo.
A countryman, who visited Green
ville, Tennessee, had his attention at
tracted by the glittering sign of the
Andes Insurance Company. He looked
at it long and intently, and then broke
out in a joyful exclumntion: "Well, I
knowed old Andy would be at aomethin'
afore long; I tell yer, they can't keep
him down; no, they can t, and walked
