'Tie a tale with an ancient moaning, A song with an old retrain, A rhyme which the marvelous aoul of man Singa once and never egain. The manifold voices of evening Are echoing round the fire Th sigh of the waves and the laugh of tbe leaves. And the inoan of the autumn air; But the laugh, and the sigh, and the moaning, Have a meaning you cannot know And I catch a solemn undertone In their rythmic ebb anl ilow. Two tides of the infinite ocean That chafeth the shores of Time Two waves of the pasiionate sea of Life Have mingled their wondrous rhyme. And the holy strain goes echoing up To the peaceful courts above; And the song is a song with an old refrain. And the rhyme is ti,e rhyme of love. And loving him ever and always. And holding him close to my heart The world msy go on in the careless march. Time's billows may heave and lart We two shall walk life's twilight Aelda, la paths by the angels trod, " Till all wars cease in the infinite peace That orowns tbe sons of Ud. Bi kxitt's Kai.listom is tba best cos metic and akin beautiiier in tbe world. The Ulpejr Parliament. The Gipsy Parliament, which meets once in every seven years, and consists of delrfates from ail the countries of Europe, is expected to assemble soon near Crongtadt in Germany. The King of this nomadic raa is one Joseph Reinhard, who hat reached tbe venerable age of ninety-eight years. - He has bad seven wives, and is the father of forty 6ve children. Our American idea of the whole Gipsy tribe is rather unfavorable. Thef are regarded generally as a set of borse) and &ui)Jren stealers, as few in numbers, and wilaiot prganization or govern men t. In fact, there at po real Gipsies in this country. But we bud that there are in Spain about 40.000, in in England more thnn lx,000, while Aus tria has 9T.0O0, and Moldavia and Walla criia art) the chosen homes of nearly 200,000 aaora. Their religion is the sub ject of mcch inatisfactory discussion. I'erhapt the Hindoo aayuig, "There are seventv-two religions and a ball pe world,'' the half being the religion ol the Jnats (or Gipsies), comes as near the truth as any.

Ineldeail Attenillna; lite Irarua. lives wr rort htumser wiatouieut by a Neiilhtn arlier, In an article occasioned by the recent death ot Uen. Kobert Anderson, tbe sa vannah (Ga.) Republican snvs: The writer of this, by invitation of Uaptain ilartstene, who had command of the evacuation ceremonies at Sumter, wss present on that interesting occasion, a jubilee on water never belore wit nessed in this country. We came out of tne tort with its commander, and subse quently, in tbe pilot-house ot tjie steamer General Clinch, to which he and bis command were nrst transferred, and had a long and nleasant interview with the vanquished soldier. He was most unhappy about tbe differences that bad sprung up between the Government and his native South. His situation as a Southern man had been more trying, but be considend tba- highest obligation upon him was to do his duty as a sol dier, without reference to his feelings. He declared. to nt tbrtt no circumstance conld have induced him to fire upon his fellow-countrymen except in defense The first shot came from them, and was directed at the flag which be was out there to protect: hence no alternative was left him. We inquired whnt would be his policy whet: he reached Washing ton; ho replied that all bis labors should be on the side of peace. In any event he had no heart, be said, tor war upon bis own countrymen, and he never did again enter t,he field. We inquired of Major Anderson why be abandoned Fort Moultrie after his positive engagement with a committee of South Carolinians not to leave it. Hit reply was, thai mutual obligations were entered into he to remain and the Carolinians not to disturb him while in possession ot the fort. Uo believed thorerwho gave the assurance acted in anni! fnith hut t.hpv cmilrl nnt nnntrnl others.- He left tort Moultrie under reliable information that without the consent of the authorities of Carolina, a plot had been formed in Charleston, by the more impulsive portion of the population, to attack tbe fort in the rear, tie had unquestionable evidence thut such an expedition waa on foot, and be lieving that tbe work was not defensible, he evacuated it and transferred his gur rison to Fort Sumter. And just here, it may not be uninter esting to relate another circumstance in the same connection. Late in the even ing, after the Isabel had left for the bar with Major Anderson and his garrison, the steamer General Clinch, with a Lnrge and enthusiastic crowd on board, turned her prow toward the city. The capture of the fort and garrison was on every tongue, and the wildest rejoicing per vaded the vessel, many believing tbe war was at an end and Southern inde pendence accomplished. On deck there was a pile of cotton bales, and when nearing the wharf, we discerned Captain Hartstene reclining on tbe top of them, evidently musing, and appareutly taking no part in the general enthusiasm. Pass ing by, we addressed him, and inquired if lie fult unwell under the fatigues of the day. " No, not tick," he remarked, "I was only occupied with serious thoughts of the future while the rest are enjoying the present I am a Southern man, and sympathize with my people in their wrongs; but I have long been in the service of the United States and know ber spirit and power. I was only thinking how terribly she would avenge this dishonor to ber flag." The Executioner of Pnrla. . A Paris correspondent to the Cincin nati Commercial writes as follows: . Let mo refer to another matter of in terest, and although it is connected wixh blood, has nothing to do with the war. You mny recollect that there has been much discussion relating to the question as to how fur life exists in the head of a body that hut just been decapitated by the guillotine. It is an old story, and credited by many, that when Sanson had executed Charlotte Corday, ho struck the decapitated head in the face, and that the face turned red with indigna tion, or something of the kind. At the time Troppman was executed, the sub ject was revived, and a good deal of dis cussion ensued, . , Recently a medical friend of mine, resident in Paris, and who has witnessed several French executions, had reasons for obtaining an interview with the exe cutioner of Paris. On the subject of the degree of life or sensation existing in a decapitated head, the following is the opinion of the executioner, reduced to English by my friend, who allows me to make use of his own language: " That bis (the executioner's) opinion was, that with th full of tbo knife perceptive life ceased, but not muscular life, for in the individuals who held their breath vio lentlv. and thus filled their heads with blood, the muscles of the face may be made to move till the moment when suf ficient blood is evacuated to produce the final syncope. M. Hendrick, the execu tioner, it a remarkable man in appear ance, being tix feet four inches high, and of a well proportioned figure, with a fine expression of countenance; whon you know bis occupation you might find something slightly uninviting about it. I saw this gentleman at the execution of Troppman. After his disagreeable duty bad been performed he walked up and down for some minutes near the guillotine, the object of intense interest, to the crowd that had not satiated its horrid curiosity. What an occupation! M. Heudrick is tixty years old, and has been executioner for forty years, and has helped out of aitteuir several hun dred persons. Ha takes a strong pro fessional interest in hit businett, and speaks with great satisfaction as to his ability now to execute a man in thirty two seconds from the time when the prisoner arrives at tbe foot of the scaffold till it moves away in tbe tumbril. is) . Koa.olh at MKtja.ll l)e. From the ManslleU Herald. Uenry Ward Beecher sars that the most gratifying circumstance of his life was being kissed by Kossuth. A co tem porary asks: "Isn't this a little hard on Mrs. Beecher?" Exchange. Speaking of Kossuth reminds us of an incident that occurred when he was in this country. W. T. Coggeahall, then State Librarian, ana betUr'nocbedon the history of every town in the Slats than any other man, was employed to accom pany Kossuth in his round of speeches, lie would post him upon all connected with the town he was to ipeak in, and tbe peopje wondered how the great Hun garian could know so much of their lit tle town; and he uaej hi knowledge skilfully to Batter their vanity and rainn money. Coming from Cleveland south, Coggeahall came on to Mansfield to make arrangements, nnt supposing that Mr. K. would be called on to speak elspwher, but ha was detained at Shel by,' thea baring but three or four nouses, and the people of the country having learned of his arrival, came in crowds, and called on him (or a speech. He spoke his usual speech, and then, de tiring to show his knowledge of the place), the pam of which even he did not understand, puui, aa ureeiey aiu, to show what he knew al out iiiitiic he went off thusly: "Your very town, its LARGEST CITY name and condition is one of the evi dences of the energy, the determination and perseverance of the'American peo ple. You have named your town ' Shall be.' I looks around 'me and I see no houses; but T see de much peoples. You have called it "Shall be,' and it shall be, and will be." Shelby has, as be predicted, become a smart place. It shall be more at mucn. AN AMEIUCAnYx CHIXA. ConfarJn at JetTeraonlan Democrat Congressman James Brookes writes from Pekin, under date of August ii some interesting notes on Chinese polity, lie savs: Before I leave Pekin I must try to convey to you my impressions of what this government ia. It seems to be a democratic despotism, and hence per haps the secret of its old age and long preservation. Confucius wat a sort of Thomas Jefferson or lien Franklin. He laid down great practical democratic principles, and they have ruled empe rors and mandarins hundreds 'and hun dreds of years. Confucius created a public opinion and a system of prece dents that no despotism could ever safely ignore, i then, tne .common people, through their instructed mandarins, guide and overawe, if they do not even sway, the Emperor. He is afraid of the people, and the mandarins are afraid of the people too. 1 here is as much a pub lic opinion here to be respected as in Great Britain or the United States. No hereditary aristocracy of any kind ex ists. No mandarin can transfer even his buttons, to say nothing of his post, to his children. When these mandarins are made governors of the provinces in China their power is quite absolute. but the Emperor is omnipotent, of course, over, them. The provinces are like our States, with certain rights that mandarins must respect when sent there. Hence the government is no where absolutely absolute that is, with safety to itself. THE RAILROAD AND TELKGRAI'H. Intelligent mandarins would like to build railroads and telegraphs, it iB thought, but they dare not, it is believed, as yet. Mo mandarin leeis potent enough to advise the Emperor to run a railroad over the graves and through tbe graveyards of Chinese revered and wor shipped ancestors. The trouble in erecting telegraph-poles is that a super stitious Chinaman believes (and all are more or less superstitious) that these poles will interfere with the Fung-Shuey, ' wind and water, a species ot geomnn- cy, or a beliet in the good or ui-iuck at tached to particular local situations that tbe poles may have struck. An event has just occurred which will hasten the erection of telegrapbt. The grand Pekin Council of Scholars have j ust awarded two competitive prizes to two Cantonese scholars, the highest hon ors of the empire. The news was sent from Shanghai by sea telegraph to Hong kong, and reached Canton days before the news could come overland. The Cantonese were astounded, and discred ited the intelligence until the long-looked for Pekin Olhcial Gazette came overland and confirmed it. Then there was won der and marvel over that intelligence, and all China, from north to south, is asking if it, will do to give foreigners the means of more rapid intercourse with the exterior ol our empire than we ourselves have. Interest, their trade and commerce, I think, will soon dispose ot that r ung-ohuey, and give Cuiua the telegraph. We have opened the great river, one of the greatest rivers in the world, and by steam we Americans do nearly all the coasting trade there, with Shanghai. Mandarins now prefer our boats to their junks to travel in. Europe and America have taught Chinamen bow to cast can non and to make rifles. 1 heir factories, under our auspices, are almost equal to ours. I heir rifle is as good as our Springfield rifle. Their ships-of-war are now putting on formidable fronts. If England again comes into conflict with China it will not be so easy a conquest as in her last two Chinese wars. The Nine or Diamonds. The following reasons are given why the nine of diamonds is called tbe "curse of Scotland ": In the distracted state of the country during the reign of Mary, a man, George Campbell by name, attempted to steal the crown out of Edinburgh castle. In this case he was unsuccessful, but man aged to abstract nine valuable jewels, and escaped safely to a foreign shore. lo replace these a heavy tax was laid upon (lie country, which the poor, op pressed peoplo thought so great a griev ance that they termed it tbe curse of Scotland, and, until very recently, the card itself bore the name ot George Campbell in the Highland. Another ex planation relates to the well-known mas sacre of Glencoe. The mandate of this cruel deed was signed by the eldest son of the Earl of Stair, who wasat the time Secretary of State of Scotland. The coat of arms belonging to this family bears nine diamonds on its shield, and the people, not daring to stigmatize the master of Stair as the curse of Scotland, applied it to his armorial bearings. And still another explanation relates to the battle of Culloden, which extinguished the hopes of tbe Stuart party, and was at the time considered a national curse. The Duke of Cumberland who was known to have been a gambler, it said to have carried a pack of cards in his pocket, and when he had won the famous field he took out the nine of diamonds and wrote his account of the victory on it. Tbe Two Ureal Tdnnele. . Tbo following statement of the dimen sions, cost, etc., of the two great tunnels of the world is interesting: Mont Cenis Tunnel Length, 12,2:16 meters, or nearly 8 miles; width, 2i feet 8 inches; hight, 20 feet; cost $13,000,000; time occupied in construction, 9 years; number of men employed, about 2,000. Hoosau Tunnel Length, 2ti,0bl feet, or about i miles; 24 feet wide; 31 feet high; cost about $9,000,000; time of con struction, when completed, nearly 20 yeara; number of workmen employed, abont 700 at present, but much less dur ing most of the time the work has been prosecuted. The chief engineering difficulties at tending the construction of the Hoosac tunnel have been overcome, and the amount of progress in a given time can now be so accurately predicted that the engineers and the contractors have no doubt that the work will be completed before the 15th of March, 1874, the date named in the contract. The New Urleaqs Picayune tells of ft lady in that oily who waa reading to her servants an account of the Chicago fire. The incident of the burning of. the mancipation proclamation arrested the attention of one old colored woman, who viewed the proclamation much as the Israelites did the ark of the covenant. "What dat," she said, "burned upf" " Yet aunty, burned up." " Den what gwine to come of us again?" " I don't know; may be you'll be slaves as be fore." " Den diS chile gwine to die right now." And she left the presence of her mistress, with dire imprecations on the bead of the man "what sot out dat tire." CIRCULATION. . . .. . The American Ham burg Cincinnati The Crown Prince of Prussia cun plow and reap. A Knoxville man has cut the Lord's Prayer on the head of a cane. Forty-two insurance companiea have tuccumbed to tUe Chicago tare. When California miners imbibe they call it " putting in a blast." One hundred and twenty-five school teachers lost their placea by the Chicago fire. A convention of the woman auffragista is called to meet at Washington on the 10th of January. There have been 14,260.827 pounds of tea transported over the Union Pacific railway so fur this year. Nearly two millions of tbe inhabitants of the earth are still addicted to baked missionary, when they can get it. Senator Carpenter estimates the num ber of lives lost by the Wisconsin fires at from twelve to eighteen hundred. A French lady, aged eighty-five, has eloped; supposed because the old folks wouldn't consent to ber marriage. A musical whisky-bottle is the latest combination of art and convenience in Macon, Ga. 1', very bod v is drinkinsr out of it and wondering. Wm. Davidson, of Bridgeport, Conn., has bad three wives within a period of four months. Ho has been a widower twice, and a married man three times. ' That waa a pretty trick of the Camn Grant Apaches to murder the mail car rier on their reservation while Vincent Collyer was present making a covenant with them. A New York butterfly, giving her or ders to her modiste, said: "I want all the lace on my dress you can get on. I want real lace; 1 do not limit yoa in price; I leave you to telect it." Two Indiana girls, savs a Western paper, became heiresses to a fortune of 2,000.00O, -left behind by a deceased New York relative. We think the amount might be reduced a million or two without much damage to the inter ests of truth. The opium trade is increasing. The quantity brought to California during the six months ending September 31, 1H71, from Uong-hong, China, and lo- kohama, Japan, was 32,.1j0 pounds, val ued at$3lH,llH. The duty paid on this. at $G per pound, was $191,148. This is an excess over the previous six months of $71,0110, and over the six months end ing September, 1871, $1 10,000.
