As through the forest, disarrayed By chill November, late I strayed, A lonely minstrel of the wood Was singing ts the solitude; I loved thy music, thus I said. When o'er thy perch the leaves were spread; Sweet was tby song, but sweeter now Thy carol on the leafless bough. Sing, little bird! thy note shall cheer The sadness of the dying year. When violets pranked the earth with blue And morning filled their cups with dew, Thy slender voice with rippling trill The budding April bowers would fill, Nor pass its joyous tones away Whea April rounded into May; Thy life shall hail no second dawn. Sing, little bird! the spring Is gone. And I remember well a day ; Thy fall-blown roundelay, - And when behind a broidexed screen. Some holy maiden sings unseen; With answering notes the woodland rusg, And every tree-top found a tongue. "Bow deep the shade! tbe grove bow i." Sing, little bird! the woods are bare! ' Bat now the summer's chant is done And mute the choral antlphon; The birds have left the shivering pines To flit among the trellised vines, Or fan the air with scented plumes Among the love sick orange blooms, And thou art here, alone alone Sing, little birdl the rest have flown. The mow has capped yon distant hill, At morn the running brook will still. From driven herds the clouds that rise Are liko the smoke of sacrifice, Ere long the frozen sod shall mock The ploughshares turned to stubborn rock, The brawling streams shall soon be dumb Sinj, Uttie bird! the rest hare come. Fast, fast the lengthening shadows creep. The songless fowls are half asleep, The air grows chin, the setting son Hay leave thee ere thy song is done, The pulse that warms thy breast grow cold, Thy secret die with thee, untold; The lingering sunset still la bright Sing, little bird! twin soon be night. Miscellaneous Selections. AN ECCENTRIC KING. His Occupations and Amusements. Whea King George ascended the throne of the Hellene, it was gen erally believed that his reign would be short-lived, and that the young gentleman from Denmark would epeedily fling away his crown, and return to his delightful home on the shores of the sound. The contrary has been the case; the Basileus from Denmark is not only a very happy man, but an ex ceedingly popular ruler. Nothing can be less pretentious than the man ner in which he lives. I brought him a letter of introduction from bis father, and, it being a fine Septem ber day, strolled down between 7 an J 8 o'clock in the morning to enquire of the palace guards what hour would be most convenient for the King to leceive me. To my astonish ment, the Greek soldier at the gate, in his picturesque uniform, replied to me: "You can see His Majesty now. He is always up before 6 o'clock," Thi3 was singular but welcome news to me. "Where may I see the Master of Ceremonies?" I asked. The soldier stared at me. "Send in your card by one of those boys," pointing to two or three pages loitering about the portico, "and you will probably be admitted at once." Such proved to be the case. Two or three minutes afterwards I was in the presence of the King. Imagine a slender young man of 28, with thin, light-colored hair, a very expressive handsome face, ruddy cheeks, dress ed in a checkered plaid, with steel framed eye-glasses, small hands, and small feet, encased in red morrocco slippers, and you have the Basileus before your eyes. He glanced over my letter of in troduction, and then asked me to be seated. You have come here all the way from Copenhagen?" he asked. "Yes, sire; seven days ago I was yet at the Tivoli, and took leave of your royal father." "Oh, yes, he likes to go there and mingle with . the people," said the young King, smiling, "and to laugh over the farces in the open air thea ter." "Your majesty has no tneater here," I remarked, "it must be a great privation PJOt at ail, ue saiu, "A uenevo a would have no time to go, if tuere was a good one in Athena. I am so busy. Look at tnis, ne auuea, snow- i : a, LiT ing me ft pue oi manuscript, x am writing." . . "Writing!" I exclaimed in sur prise. U ne ii.mg laugneu. "Yes." he said, "writinfr a book." I took the liberty to ask on what subject "On the 'Jiees oi nymewus. Times must have changed greatly, or the ancient Hellenes must nave been poor judges of honey. Wait He jumped up,ana Drougnt a lum ber filled with honey, and a tea spoon. "Taste mis. I did so, while he looked at me expectantly. "Is it sood" he asked. "Not verv." I said, "Not near so rood as Danish honey.' "That is just what I am going to nrove in mv book." He asked me to accompany him his cabinet. It was a small room fr.ll of chemical crucibles, and glass leovered with waxed paper. rTere " said tno King, "are nine- fir" u.ueieuk ouma "vj lJ' . tw 7.onlftnti. from a'" e v t Hymettu'S Honey ranss ut "ua miwtof tKem. iTia Maid sty made me taste a half dozen diflerent kinds. I sisked him if he thought that m olderr. times,the bu?y bees of Hymet- tus had done Deuer. " I am inclined to that opinion, he answered, "and I am sure I haye foundt out the true reason. The climate of Greece is no longer what lit was 2,000 years ago. That is my ioTrorvr" hp. added, aitnoau mum- phantly; "and u l can piu sertiou, am I not entitled to some philosophical Honors r I ventured to ask for the reasons of this belief. "Ah " Via Raid. Jausaing, , "that is eJf - hut. believe me, I am well I .;n with Rrcaments. I have my classics at my fingers' ends, and l a it a nave waaea tnrouga an enormous quantity of learned literature." I asked the King if he devoted his leisure hours entirely to this branch of study. "No, no," said he, eagerly; to my birds. Will yon see my aviary?" i There was no refusing, of course. And so I followed His Majests into the court yard, where he showed me a truly superb aviary. I expressed my surprise, and he said, with genuine pride gleaming from his eyes : "Is it not beautiful? It cost me a great deal of money almost more than I was able to afford. And now he showed me his pets1 the famous five trained magpies. He took off his hat and placed five bright brass rings on his head. The magpies took them from him, one after another, and then he whistled, and they brought them back to where they had got them. They al so placed themseles, at his command upon his head, forming a sort of crown; and when he shouted"Oikon' (go home) they flew back to their cote. Another curiosity was a tame vulture, of gigantic size, captured near the Bite of ancient Delphia. At the King's call, the terrible creature placed itself with beta legs on his shoulders. I instinctively shrank back from the vrJtare, but the Kins said : "Never mind, old Miltiades is very good-natured. lie will now shake hands with you." bare enough, Miltiades grasped my shrinking hand with an antique grip worthy of his namesake, and with an exceedingly ludicrous air of gravity. The King then ordered him to re tire, but the bird was evfdently re luctant 1 he King ordered a piece of meat to be brought to Miltiades, who thereupon withdrew, with an un mistakable air of satisfaction, while His Majesty proudly told me that he alone had trained the bird to all this. We ventured into the palace, and the King kindly showed me the most remarkable apartments, chatting ail the while ahout his parents, and his brothers and sisters. He expressed his regrets that naughty little Thyra, as called his younger sister, was al so to be married to horrible, foggy England, which he seemed to hold in special abhorrence. "I suppose," I said, "your Majes ty will be present at the wedding?" "Not If it comes off in England. I was there once, six months, and hard ly ever saw a sunny day. Now, I have become so accustomed to the glorious sun that I cannot live with out it" I was over an hour with this ec centric young King. He was the soul of simplicity and kindness. His subjects like him, and he is happy. How few Kings are there like him. Appleton's Journal. From a St. Louis paper. Singular Effect of Twins on a St. Louis Journalist. A young woman in a street car with two results of her love's young dream of a year old, sitting up in her arms like two funny little china images. It is immediately assumed that the funny little results are twins. They are dressed alike, and have similar chubby little fat legs, and fat dump ling fists, and the turned up fat little nose of the larboadr. baby is the identical spit of the baby ou the star board, and they are both endeavoring to make harty meals out of the dumplings in the same beautiful style of early cannibalism. They stare at each other out ox their bright goblin little eyes, as if they were very old acquaintances indeed, and could tell a thing or to of each other if they would, bat are bound by solemn compact not to divulge, un til they are through with their con tract for finishing the dumplings. They must be twins, and are so much alike that nothing less than a mother's instincts can tell the differ ence between them, and even then is wonderful how she can do it without a strawberry mark stamped somewhere on one of them. Yes, looking again, there is a distinction. The larboard baby has the dirtiest little nose ever exhibited by a repu table with chubby legs within the limits of a public conveyance. We look in wonderment at that baby's nose, and rush to the conclusion that hydrant has burs ted somewhere in his inside. If t isn't a hy drant what is it? One fact is patent the larboard baby cares no more for the interior hydrant with a nose attachment than he does for a finan cial panic. Nor does the starboard baby either. The poor little mother she is not much bigger than a good-sized fami ly Thanksgiving turkey-is terrible anxious about the nose of the lar board baby. At any other time that dirty little nose would be a well- spring of pleasure to her, but it isn't now. one rubs it witn strong pa rental resolution, always the wrong way, and wita a red cotton hanaaer- chief, until the nose of the larboard baby was as red as a beet, and the larboard baby looks up in her face, as if to say, "How long, O Lord, how long?" All this time the star board baby is smiling wonderfully briffht smiles of goblin joy, and kickins up his absurdly chubby lit tie legs in a way totally unmindful of the propriet ies of high-toned socie ty.

As for the starboard che rub, nothing can be more sublime than his enjoyment of his brother's martyrdom, while both larboard and starboard continued to elevate their legs in a most disgraceful manner, and gum their dumplings with a perseverance worthy of all praise. There is, after all, one great good in a dirty little nose as long as it lasts, we thought, as tbe mother and her twins left the car; this woman can tell larboard from starboard if they happen to get mixed up. "So the doctor is practicing out West, is he?" said an old lady. "Well, I declare to goodness, I'm glad of it, for I always thought he needed practice: ' From Good Words. From Good Words.

There was once a little girl who sat alone in a cold dark garret and wept - -She had neither father nor mother; she was poor and forsaken. But the sun, which was then setting, peeped forth from a eioud and spread a crimson light in a little attic. The door opened softy, and a little, bent old woman stuck in her head. "Come in, Aunty," said the little girl, pleasantly. "I am tired, may I sit on vour lit tle stool?' asked the old woman. "Will you give me something to drink, for I am so thirsty.". The child took her little bowl of milk and gave it to the old woman. That was to have been her evening meal; but she was such a good little girL When the old woman had drank the milk she seemed to become more beautiful and friendly; the snn shone on her silver hair and made her cheeks red. ' She sang softly to her self: . "But I would like to know . Why you weep, little Greta!" Why," said the little girL "I am 30 lonesome and Lavj no one to play witn. lne watcn dog is so old and sensible, and the hens have their chickens to attend to. Nobody teaches me anything; I can do noth ing for uncle s comfort; he goes to the ale house, and when he come3 home I am afraid of him ; I may well weep, urten 1 am hungry. I am poor and have nothing. "You have much that you are not aware of," said the old woman. "Will you believe my words? You have ten servants." Greta made big eyes. She looked around her. "See here !" said the old woman, taking her hand and pointing to the little fingers. "They are called Tnm- metott, Slickepott, Langeman.Gulle brands and Lillepyt Have you heard anything new?' Greta looked at her hand, and was she dazzled by the sun, or how was it? It seemed to her that every one of her fingers was a little person with a litua face. Tummetott was short and thick, looked meditative and wise; his neighbor had a more pert and conspicuous appearance; the solemn Langeman adorned by the old woman with a little silver helmet, and Gullebrand, at his side was allowed to wear a little gold ring as a belt round the waist, and a silver shield. Lillepyt looked like a boy, and bowed laughing. "Can you say now that you have no servants, skilful and good, if you will only allow them to earn some thing. Only try." Greta clapped her hands. Tbe fingers now looked as usual, but the thimble and sewing ring still remain ed. The old woman kissed little Greta and went her way. The little girl eat dry bread and drank water; but when she looked at her hands she laughed at her small servants. "Now you shall help me to make uncle's bedf cried she gladly, and they all hastened to lift the pillows and turn the coverlid, and Lillepyt did what he could. The next morning when Greta awoke, she told Tummetott and all his four companions to come and dress her ann comb her hair. They had never done it so well before. Her hair shone like the cat's when he has just washed himself, and her shoe strings were carefully tied. Af ter she had said her morning prayer, she ran out to meet her ancle. It snowed terribly, and the wind rus tled the trees so that it looked as if they shook their heads at all who went by. "Do not go to the village to-day, uncle," said Greta. bStay at home with me. I have ten little servants who will get dinner for you." "What is the child talking about?' said Uncle Lars, a little testy. B ut he sat down to split kindling wood. and then began to work a fishnet, which had long lain in the corner. But Greta ran to him and said. Have you laid any eggs.' and tne nen clucked contentedly. There lay a snow white egg in the nest Tum metott and Slickepott carried it im mediately into the house, broke it into the bowl, where the milk had been, and then Greta ran out and commanded her small servants to bind together a little whip. The tiny creatures worked so hard that they became red and warm, and beat an egg to a froth; and then Greta took a little flour and stirred it in, some milk which she had got at a neighbor's. Ah ! now the frying pan stood on the fire, which blazed mer rily; a bit of butter was dropped in it so that it sizzled. Yes, Tumme toU, Slickepott, Langeman, Gulle brand were all good cooks, and Lil levpt served as scullion. WD at a hurry they were in! And how much they could do if they only tried! There stood the dinner table, spread with a coarse, but clean table cloth, smoking potatoes and a large herring, warm mait and tne magni ficent pancakes. Uncle was aston ished at Greta. He ate right hartily to her great satisfaction, and while she was clearing away the things she tried to think how able to keep trim at home, far from the wicked ale-house. .

Oa.what hurry the little fingers were now in to get supper ready, fondle her uncle, and m ake his bed ! How glad little Gre ta was over her conquest and her ten tiny servants. . Greta became large, and her litt! hands could do more and more. She sewed and knit she spun and wove so dilligently. Such bright scoured tins had no one else; such a white table and floor were not to be found in any other cottase. Her uncle had long since broken himself from going to the ale-house. He thrived in his neat, cozy house, where the industri ous little girl bustled about so clad- How can vou keeo things so nice. Greta, yon who have no servant?' -' asked a rich peasant's daughter. "Ah, I have ten! ' said Greta, ro guishly.. "They weave and spin, scrub and scour; they are never idle.' . - By and by a smart young peasant . courted Greta, and then Gullebrand nad a gold ring to wear. The same day the wedding was to take place the old woman came again and had with her a thimble and a sewins-riac of the purest gold; and thus equip ped, Langeman and Gullebrand mov- e l still more handily. Greta thank ed the old woman for the words about the little servants, and showed all the blessings they had brought to the house. She said to sll poor lit tle girls that they must not drop their hands, but try to see what they could learn to do. With asoirations in the heart and the fingers set in motion. blessing is not so far off. Greta became happy and her home . comfortable; the ten little servants worked there zealously, and when evening came they clasped each oth er mutely, and Greta thanked God for being able to work. How Joe Hawley Flogged Ben Butler. A Washington correspondent of the New York Sun gives the key to Ben Butler's dislike of Gen. Hawley of Connecticut The letter gives the story as told by a Mr. Sewart to the correspondent: BUTLER BOTTLED. "Well", said Sewart, 'you know that Butler had about 40,000 m. j at Bermuda Hundred while Grant was fighting Lee in the Wilderness. If h had been prompt and bold he might have gone into Richmond like book. But he got 'bottled up, as Grant said, and that was the end of him. Then Grant took the most of his men, leaving with him about 4, 000 or 5,000 men under Generals Terry and Hawley. It cut Butler up terribly knocked his military dig nity into a cocked bat bo Butler get his back up, and determined to do something on bis own hook. He had his engineers cut a new -road through the woods which would bring him out in the open country between Petersburg and Richmond. He ordered Hawley's brigade to march over this road during the night, expecting that he could reach the open country by day-light and then assault and'eapture Petersburg, He sent Kautx with a regiment of cavalry around the other side of Petersburg, to make an assault on the works south of that city, at the same time that Hawley struck it on the north. Well, Joe started off with his brigade on as dark a night as ever you saw. It was the night that Grant was fighting Lee at Cold Har bot I remember taat we could hear the guns of that battle. But Joe found that Butler's road was wonder fully and fearfully made. It was hakced out of a thick forest His engineers had left stumps two and three feet high. It was almost im possible for Joe to get his batteries over them. He worked like a beaver, but at daylight he was not more than half way to the open ground, isuuer heard of it and sent a message to Joe, wanted to know why in heil he wasn t in the open country. "Li you P said Butler, 'don't vou know that I have removea iajor trenerais for less than this.' Joe sent back word that he was doing the best he could and if it was no satisfactory to Butler he could remove and be hang ed to him. It was well along toward noon - when Joe struck the open country. There was a line of works extending toward retersburg lor miles. A LIVELY SHAKE UP. It would have taken several hours to reach the city in a straight march. It was so far away that you could on ly see one of its church steeples, and you know the city is on rising ground at that But Joe obeyed orders. Ha carried line after line of works at the point of bayonet, but the city seem ed as far off aa ever. About sundown Kautz's cavalry formed a junction with him. Kautz reported that he had assaulted the works at different places, and found them well manned. He had been repulsed on every side. A strong force was already massing in front of Hawley, and common pru dence dictated a return to camp. It was late at night when the troops reached their quarters. Joe sat down without going to bed his newspaper lift? had made him a sort of a night owl and wrote out his official report, sending it to Buter a3 soon, as it was finished. Next morning an or der came to the tent &nd said that Gen. Butler wanted to see Gen. Hawley immediately. I rode up to Butlers headquarters with Joe. Joe got off his horse and went inside, l remained without I could hear them at it inside. Butler was roar ing at Joe, and browbeating him as though he were a witness in a rape case. Every once in a while Butler would shout, 'You say in your report so and so.' Hawley would answer, 'You misquote my report; I say no such thing., Then Butler would wear and talk about the Major-Gen- rals he had removed. For a long time Joe kept his temper. Then the lie direct was given. It was to much. Joe went for Benjamin. He caught him by the coat collar, and shook the stuffing out of him. I was thinking about going in when Joe appeared at the door of the tent He was as calm as a summer sea, 'Come, Seward,' he said, 'let us go. I shall be removed if I stay here much longer.' Aad we went back to our quarters."
