A Welsh I.eceuJ. twain and Dafydd were on their way to the barvext tield oue evening, to re sume the task of gathering in the corn - a duty rendered urgent by the need of making the best of the harvest moon, tLeu at its brightest. They took food Witli them fur their evening uieuL "Bk)V," said Ovrai j to his companion, "wonlil it not be well that I should run to ('euiaes at supper-time to get my felloes from the cobbler? Our master is not likely to come to us to-night ; aud, even he should. I could get bnck in time to resume work after supper." "Yes, you can easily do that, was the answer. Snpper-time having come, Owain pnt his bread and cheese in his pocket and btarted on his errand. After going some distance he perceived close to his path a circio of little men aud women, some of grotesque, and all of playful aspect At the sight, he was, of course, greatly frightened : but, after pausing a moment to recover breath, he sum moned courage enough to approach them, nnd on doing so saw a little wo man of rare beauty iu the midst of the group. She was so surpassingly fair that honest Owain was quite smitten by her charms. Seeing his attention fixed tin herself, she ran frori among the fair crowd, and, clasping her soft arms rouud his neck, invited him to join them ; to which he joyfully assented, for his fears had now left him, and he thought only of this, the loveliest creature of her Bex he had ever seen. Long was the time he spent in company of his new friends company so delight ful that he forgot the lapse of time. Hut at last, remembering his duty, and fearing that Dafydd might need his help, or that his e'mployer might come to the field and discover his absence, he unwillingly returned without going u Ceniaes. When he reached the Held the scene was wholly changed. His fellow ser vant was not there. The field was a pasture in which cattle were quietly grazing. While wondering at this, a keen sense of hunger came over him. Putting his hand into his pocket, for the food he had brought, he found it Lard as stone. Ou going to the farm house, he found there, not his master's household, but strangers, to whom he was as unknown as they to him. Ut terly bewildered, he started to look for a lodging at the house of some neigh bors, and ou the way met one whose appearance seemed in some way fami liar. They both hesitated a moment, until Owain asked "Are you Dafydd ?" "Yes," was the answer. "15nt who are you? Sn rely not Owain?" "Yea, I am Owain." "Why, where did yon go that even ing?" "Take me home with yon, and 111 tell von. How long is that ago ?" vVeU," rejoined Dafydd, "let me see I have been married fifteen years, and you went away five year9 before that" " vThat became of my shoes ?" "The shoemaker kept them till we gave vou up for lost, and then sold them.'" They started for Dafydd's home to gether, Owain on t he way telling Dafydd his experience of twenty yenrs with the lairies, and hearing of the mny changes that Lad taken place while he was away.

While walking on the ground, or sitting on a bough, the singular length of the feathers is not very strik ing, bnt when the bird spreads its wings they come out in all their beauty. The bird is not a good flier, and when it takes to the air only goes for a short distance. In running, its wings are said to be efficient aids. Although the Argus Pheasant is scarcely larger than an ordinary fowl, the plumage is so greatly developed that its total length is more than five feet The head and back of the neck are covered with short brown feathers, and the neck and upper part of the breast are warm chestnut-brown, cov ered with spots of yellow and black.and similar tints are formed on the back. The tail is a deep chestnut covered with white spots, each spot beiug surrounded with a black ring. WTien the bird chooses, it can raise the tail so that it stands boldly in the air between the wings, and is partly spread. The secon daries of the wings are most wonderful examples of plumage, and would re quire many pages to describe them fully. Suffice it to say that the gradations of jetty black, deep rich brown, orange, fawn, obe and white, are so jnstly and boldly arranged as to form admirable studies for the artist, and totally to baffle description.

The harvest was carried, and, according to an an old custom, the village held a thanks giving service before the sowing of the seed-corn began ; and whilst all were generous to their relations.none showed greater hospitality than the worthy Hofbaner, who expected not only all his own connexions, but also those of his dead wife, to share in the annual jubilee.

In the stnbe sat Kathi, seated on oue of the wooden settees which surrounded the room, her good old face bent silently over a paste board placed on oue of the square tables at which the large family took their meals. This was more convenient than in the (jrwnlbe, or huge pantry, which was half buried in proveuder: besides.Kathi thenght it struck damp.

Heart and Mind. The heart and mind are correlated, and so interdependent for health and vigor. It is, however, true that the mind exerts the greater influence, as is the case when we compare it with any organ of the body. There is, doubt less, a physical consciousness of the heart otherwise that organ would not respond so readily to mental emotion ; but as for its being s consciousness, like that of the mind, we do not be lieve. Otherwise the heart would be a thinking, intelligent organ, instead of a machine provided for the purpose of ministering to life. Tke Slavey Person. I feel inclined to speak only with the most profound respect of the Stagey Person. I am chagrined to find that the adjective here applied to him, while thoroughly descriptive, is at the same time somewhat jaunty to the ear and savorous of diseeteem. I would wish my language, while conversant with such a theme as this, to move with fit and becoming stateliness, expressive not only of the character and bearing of the person alluded to, but of my appreciation of his many virtues and my awe of his deportment For he is as eminent in manners as he is in morals. In a word, be never for gets himself. More than that, he never forgets his part nor his audience.

A small stream of water issues from the cave. It has beeu ascertained that the water trickles down from the roof of the cave, and the cooling of the air ia suposed to be due to contact with the wet surface of the roof.

Alphonse Karr, a white-haired old gentleman, is one of the most popular of the Parisian feuilletonists. He ha had a singular career. A loug time ago he quarrelled with M. Bertin, of the Journal Uks b oat, which resulted in his swearing that he would not write a line for the press for twenty years. This odd vow he faithfully kept not withstanding the most tempting offers. He bonght a beautiful villa and garden near Nice, and became a zealous horti culturist. He sent thousands of bou quets to the Paris market, bnt the ven ture was not profitable. When the twenty years had expired Karr returned to his newspaper work, and is to-day as brilliant as ever. ' Gerald Massey has been clubbed and welcomed in a sjieech, to which he re plied in honest aud hearty fashiou, as became a man who made his mark a sympathy for the poor which made his heart poetic and touched his tongue with music. Some of his early poeni-i are full of the very spirit of humanity, and seem prophecies of a redemption for labor which is already beginning to dawn. With some of his later musings and mystic speculations the world ha less interest, and admirers of the early poet will regret if tho lecturer confines himself to clondland aud descants en tirely upon the Eternities. If he gives ns the plaint of poverty with his unfor getable poetry and pathos, he will strike the rock aud make onr sympathies spring forth as freshly as at the first A remarkable change in the channels of commerce, consequent npon the building of the Union Pacific Railroad, is shown in the report of the monthly imports of raw aud other silk. Prior to 1870 the silk importations at San Francisco were insignificant in amouut, the September report of that year show ing that only oue hundred and twenty packages, valued at $ljO,0IO, tmd beeu received, against fonr hundred and thirty-five packages, valued at SSlSlfc! received at Xew York. For the same month the next year the balance was iu favor of San Francisco, the importations to that port being valued at $rCl,OM, and those at Xew York at $177,277. Iu September, 1872, the values were 3303. -0-J5 to San Francisco, and $202,586 to Xew Y'ork. The silk, whether received at San Francisco or Xew York, is used almost altogether by Eastern manufai tnrers. A MasschnsettH woman, it ia Baid, has lately patented self-fastening hut ton, which needs no button-hole, which holds as fast as the most desperate per son can desire, and which yet can be unfastened by a simple touch. The time will come when that unhappy, too ingenious woman will be denounced s- one of the worst foes of her sex who has ever existed. Xothing is a greater pro vocation to connubial ideas in the mind of a forlorn bachelor than the difficul ties which he has with his apparel ou the subject of buttons. How these use ful fastenings leave his wristbands and collars, and vests and pantaloons every man who has been single can sadly tell, and how he himself has made absurd attempts to repair the damage by sew ing on buttons himself he would be ashamed to tell. Despair at inability to conquer this annoyance of single life has made many a man double, reduced the wild bachelor to the discipline of a home, taught him his duties as a citizen and made him in time respected as a husband and a father. And this Mas sachusetts woman, who undertakes to emancipate the male sex from the social influence of buttons, will become, after years, scorn and byword to her sex, especially among single sisters.
