' Laka six ) it. Sweetly alert tho plains of Palestine, bathed In the clear and silvery radiance of the autumn moonlight. Whispering winda were chiming plaintive notes, with restless wares that broke In sort and murmcring music on the shores or lnlo and river. Tho fast ripening grapes, striving In rain to hldo their purple richness 'ncath tho rustling leaven, hung thickly clustered in tho vine yards of Judea, Harvest fields, whitened and ready for the reaper's hand, wero stretch ing far away over hill and valo till their out lines vfcro lost In tho dim distance. The cloud-capt hills of Lebanon on the north wero rearing up theif proud forms to tho sky. Thick the cedar's sliado lay on tho summit, while a robo of lasting green lent covering to their side. Tho bare grey rocks, vn funnel's top, lay open to tho moonlight; while sweet uews on Hcrmon's woody steeps the night winds' wing shook o&. Mount OUict savo where some arrowy beam of moonlight glanced reflected back from the dark olivo leaves, and quivered down upon tho dimpling waves of Jvcdron, as that sweet stream wound its murmuring way around the garden of Qethscmano. Star light, silent and soft, lay on its bosom, and tho tremulous willow bonghs, stirred by low breathings of the evening air, Just kissed the rteacofnl uatcra and then aiirhed theinsehcs totlcep again. Jerusalem, great city of a f;reater king, Judea's hope and every lie irew's pride God's dwelling place on earth lay quiet and hushed In the calm stillness of tho night. The restless multitude, that all day long, intent on gameful end, had one by one, as day declined, departed to their homes. The voice of tho huj er and the seller in the market-place waa hnshcil; tho incessant tramp of laden beast and busy men had ceased; the last faint, echoing footfall in her marble halls had died away, and silence, deep and stilLlier leaden wimrs had folded over gilded toner and dome. The bright glare of the lamps in banquet hall and by tho icstai Doara hau uica away, save where some fllckcrinir light in "alabaster urn burnt dimly," telling sad talcs of restless, anxious watelnngs by tno couiii or suuerm;, dying lote. And could tt be that In thy lands, fair Pal estine; land oi J cno van s love; Home or toe Patriarchs, and cradlo of tho Prophets; land whero God himself had placed Ills visible rresencc, and whero Heaven-taught seer and tract's sweetest bard had prophesied Ira manuel's future hemo ; oh 1 could it be within tho wide-spread boundaries of Thy hills, and plains, and valcn, Ons conld be found whose heart with bitter anguish wrung, uud soul-sickened even unto death itself, on such a nitrht, where nature smiled in all her loveliness, should ween in agony of spirit t Weep, too, over Jerusalem, o'er bi5r high and noiy tempie, and tor ine sins oi uoa s once chosen people ? Ycsl There is One a man of sorrows called a man with grief and sor rows early made acquainted, whoso youthful friends were want and poverty, and whom Buffering has taught deep sympathy with earth's afflicted ones. His namo is Jesus 1 He whom tho antrels worshipped: before whom seraph and arch-angel bowed with faces veded; to whom all lleavin did rever ence our Heavenly Father's well-beloved One. He that left Heaven; left all its glory aud its brightness; left its honor and its purity, and came down to a guilty, ruined earth to suffer, toil, and w eep, aud pray, and finally to din for sinful man I llchold Him now approach, with slow and measured tread, this city of His lovo. I)c- drops, brushed off by wandering breetcs from tne nigut-winus wuig, uko glistening pearls, lie'thick and heavily among tho auburn hair that clusters round Ills brow, and the damp night air moistens His cheek; for, though the wild foxes of the hills can claim their borrows, and tho wanderlng'bird her wavy home, yet for tho Saviour, in Jerusalem, there is no pillow whereon to rest Ills weary head. As He approaches near tho city, with om niscient eye lie sees the cross already rajjed boholds the cruel nail, tho piercing thorn, the countenance of Jewish rulers filled with rage and thirsting for His blood. Yet, with all this in view, though burning tear-drops thickly fall and deep sighs struggle from an oppressed and aching heart, it Is not for himself lie weeps. All His suflcrlngs past, present and to como mot e not His troubled soul as does His sorrow for a self ruined, Hod rejecting people Aud from tho deep recesses of a yearning heart, with tenderness and love o'ernowlng, comes the exclamation I "Oh I Jerusalem, Jerusalem, that thou hadst known, yea even thou, at least in this thy day, tho things that to thy pcaco belong; but now are they all hidden from thy c) es V" And then again He weeps, for with pro phetic eye Ho sees brooding clouds of coin ing wratfi, heavy and black with judgment and desolation, lowering dark aud fearfully over the city of His love. He sees tho holy temple, with its gilded pinnacles, its marble turrets, and its lofty dome, Its gates and bars of brass, and walls of solid masonry, that seem, to man's short-sighted vision, firm as the cv crlasting hills, must soon ho low in dust; and with anticipation's ear Ho hears, coming up from her luxurious halls and gor geous palaces, the wailing cry of anguish and misery. He sees her little ones fainting and dying In her streets, and tho last remnant of her peoplo " scattered and peeled," and tar ried captlvo to a far-off land, to be a by-w ord and a reproach to those nho know not God. Audwhilo He looks upon this cherished city, and remembers all his Pathcr's love and kindness, and their guilt and sin and suro de struction, burning tears again bnrst from a heart yearning with love and pity and com passion, and most bitter he weeps over those who weep not for themselves. Oh, sin I how hateful and how loathsome must thou be, to call forth tears from suci a Saitour I E. T. II. The Fbvian "Head OENTitE." "Hoad Cin tro" Stephens is thus described by the Paris Opinion Rationale: "Ho is of middlo height and of dlstln gulshcd manners. Ho wears a long, fair heard, and with long hair of a somouhat darker hue, and his features, though delicately formed, indicato energy. His forehead shons uncommon intelligence, and a firmness of win iniuie more rcmaruauio by lus prominent eyebrows. His ej cs, though keen and spark ling, have something of tho softness of the north, and testify to the sharpniss of tho in tellect, rendered enthusiastic at tho idea of Irish emancipation. In a word, everything in the- physiognomy and appearance of Mr. Ste phens proves the man who devotes himself to generous ideas, and who does not shrink from the responsibility of carrying them out." Arttnuts Ward Spaakfc at aTnalaJi If ainert The treat showman has returned from the South, and has opened a regular correspon dence with tho Philadelphia Home Wcelty. He went to a Fenian meeting, and the fol lowing In the result, as described in his first letter, dated "To Home, April, 18C6 f Tho town hall waa jam-full of people. mostly Irish citizens, and the entlioosasm was immense.

The speeches were red hot agm England and her iron heel, and it was resolved to free Ireland at onct. Hut it was much dcsirablo before frcein' her that a largo quantity of funs should bo raised. And, like gen'rons souls, as they was, funs was lib'rally contribooted. Then arose an excitin' discussion as to which Head Center they should send 'cm to O'Mahoney or Mcltoborts. There was grate excitement over this, but it was finally re solved to sen half to one and half to t'other. Then Mr. 1'innlgan roso and said we hav' hero to-night sum citizens of American birth, from whom we should he glad to hear. It would fill our harts with speechless joy to hear from a man whoso namo towers high In the zoological and wax figgcr world from whoso pearly lips Says I, "(Jo slow, Finny; go slow." "We wish to hear," continued Mr. Fin ncgan, moderatin' his stilo suminut, "from our townsman, Mr. Ward." I beg'd to be declined, but It wan't no use. I rose amidst a perfeck uproar of ap plaus. I said we had convened there In a mcctin' as I understood it, or rather in a body as it were, in rcfrenco to Ireland. If I know iny own heart, every ono of us there, both grate and small, had an impulso flowln' in his boo Bum, "and consequentially," I added, "we will stick to it similar and in accordance therewith, as long as a spark of manhood, or the people at large.

Cries of "Oh here how, that wont do." "It is troo," I said. "Not a drop of good llckcr has passed my lips in all that time. 1 don't let it pnss 'cm. I reach for it while it Is going by !" says I. "Squire, harness mc some more 1" "I beg pardon," sold tho Squire, "for the rem irk; you are sober; but what on alrthare you drivin' at !" "Yes," I said, that's just it.

Mr. McFaddeu, who was suflerin' so thurly for Ireland, was of tho Mahony wing.

Wo hain't seen nothin' but a Blow, so far it's bin all blow, and the blowcra in New York won't git out oi llellusses as long as our Irish frens in the rooral districks send 'em money.
