THE NYMPH OF ARCADIE.
"Young Love* to sell I" * voice cilia out Beneath the treea, "Yoon/ lore* to sell!" •join porch 'and garden round about, Viuld, maid and matron hasten out— "Young lovea to.sell !" Sbe took the baaket from her head, Thia cunning nymph of Arcadie— "Juat see the soft wings, gray and red, nuttering in their pleachen bed, Who'll bay? I will not wait, you sie, Who'll oome to me?" "Young loves to sell !" the children run About her ! "O take all our toys, Take all we have and give us one !" Old Laut spinning in the sun Cries, "Long since los I all my joys, Give me but one !" "Young loves to sell ! I will not stay, Bo maidens, maidens, come and buy, I can not give them without pay, Nor let them fly, I'll go awav If no oue quickly comes to try If she can buy. " See how each little rosy dear Smiles through the wicker bars at you, Do not let your faint hearts fear, " My darling loves ! They smite and peer, And this one with wings of azute blue, He beckons you. " rhe dainty curls on that one's brow Like Cupid's own are; come and see, His downy cheeks are all aglow. Like yours, why should you hide them so ? Let us barter and agree, Make haste to me." Silvia, wh re is Silvia hid ? She loosed the pearling from her hair, Her golden necklace she undid, Her bracelet from her wiist she slid, And raaand caught the prize so rare, bilvia the fair. Then every one, and all at once Sti uggling round the wise nvmph flew, None would rest without a chance, Such shining eyes and such a dance ! But Silvia was the best I knew, Wings azure blue ! [W. B. Scott in the London Athenäum. LITERARY NOTES. A memoir of Lord Melbourne, by Mr. Tor rens, M. P., is in press. J. M. Raid, United States Minister to Greece, is writing a history of that country. A " Life of Hans Christian Andersen " is being prepared by Miss Wood, the translator ot "The Dead Cities of the Zayder Zse." " The Case of Mr. Luoraft, and other Sto-, lies," is the title of the coming volume from the authors of " Beady Money M jrtiboy." The new "centenary" revised edition of Mr. Bancroft's History will be issued in six volumes, at $2 25 each, monthly, beginning with February. Col. Valentine Baker will publish from his prison his travels on the Perso- Turkom an frontier, under the title of " Coming Events in the Eist" A new romanoe by Turgeneiff, the title of which is not yet made public, will appear shortly. He has been working hard upon it this winter in Paris. The English reviewers speak in terms of highest praise of "Erechtheus," most of them regarding it as by far the best of Swin burne's literary efforts. Edmnnd About has decided to visit America next summer, it is reported, for tbe purpose of furnishing French people with Frenoh views of our institutions. Lockhart told Haydon that Murray had S id Byron £16,000 for bis works, and that array had made £100,000 by their sale. He made £20,000 on one edition. Messrs. Lippincott & Co. announce "Tbe Domestic Life of General T. J. (Stonewall) Jackson," by 8. N. Bandolpb, author of the Domestio Life of Thomas Jefferson. Mr. Albany de Fonblanque's long looked for novel, "A Family Tree," has ju-t made its appearance in England, and will, we hope, be speedily republished in this country. H. Emile Belmont, of the Paris Rappel, bas a French translation of the dramas of Shelley nearly finished, and he will next un dertake a rendering of his lyric works. Longfellow's " Evangeline" has been trans lated into Portuguese blank verse, and the manuscript translation has been sent to this eonntry, to be submitted to Mr. Longfellow. Mr. Bobert Buchanan's proie romanoe, "The Shadow of tbe Sword," is begun in tbe January number of the Gentleman's Magazine, with a " Proem," which is also a poem, and five chapters. Mis. Antoinette Brown Blackwell, M. D., has written a volume on "The Physical Basis of Immortality," which G. P. Putnam's Sons will publish. It takes strong scientific posi tion in favor of the doctrine of immortality. Mr. Sidney Lanier, a young Southern poet whose contributions to some of the magazines have recently attracted a great deal of notioe, has been appointed to write the text of a cantata for the opening of the centennial festivaL The younger Auerbach, of Stuttgart, Ger many, has recently added to his liât of Ameri can books a translation of Franklin's auto biography, with portrait, a preface by Bar thold Aueibach, and an elaborate introduction of nearly 100 pages by Friedrich Knapp. Mr. Scudamore, one of the English sub postmasters general now at Constantinople, has resumed his " Sleepless Man " articles in tbe Standard, and is as amusing and incisive as ever in his sketches of that city of holi days, " tbe very Paradise of Civil Servants." The first specimens of the literary treasures brought home from abroad by Mr. T. B. Aldrich will be displayed in the March Atlan tic. It is a long poem, filling nine pages of the magazine, and is a version of a Roman legend. Rumor says it is the poet's best com position. The forthcoming book of "Disooveridk at Ephesus," by J. T. Wood, will, it is said, almost equal in interest the great work of Dr. Bohliemann on Troy. It is a narrative of eleven years' excavations on the site of the great Temple of Diana, and will have profuse illustrations. The London Academy thinks that the con firmed novel-reader has a horror of seeond perusals, and would rather read any trash for the first time than "Pendennis" or "Pride and Prejudice" for the seoond. Yet, accord ing to our observation, many readers find tbe aeoond reading of such books as "Pendennis" more enjoyable than the fiist Dr. H. G. Hoelemann bas published at Leipsio a curious book, entitled " Die Beden des Satan in der Heiligen Schrift," that is, "The Discourses of Satan in the Holy Scrip tare. " The speeches of Satan cited in the Old Testament are discussed, first, exegeti cally; secondly, comparatively; thirdly, prag matically; fourthly, rhetorically. Herman Melville writes as follows to the New York World: " Permit me through your columns to make a disavowal T. B. Peterson A Brothers, of Philadelphia, include in a late liât of their publications, 'The Befugee,'by Herman Melville.' I have never written any work by that title. In connection with that title Peterson & Brothers employ my name without authority, and notwithstanding a re monstrance conveyed to them long ago.'" A most valuable MS. has been discovered in tha Azores. It refers to the colonization, in the year 1500, of the Northern part of America, by emigrants from Oporto, Aveiro, and tbe Island of Terceira. It was written bv Francisco de Sons«, in 1570. Barboza Mzith*ri»> «M* tha« ù tr«a mm* duiu<g 4 m gnat earthquake of Lisbon in 1755. This most important document is about to be pub lished by an erudite Azorian, and will throw great light on the disputed question of the early discovery of America. Mr. Sb George Mivart will shortly publish a volume, entitled "Contemporary Evolu tion." This will be a review of the present course and tendency of philosophical specu lation, scientific advances, and social and po litical change, in so for os they affect Chris tianity. It will also discuss the probable ef fects upon the ehurch and society generally of the further continuation of the process of evolution in these spheres. In addition, it touehes on the effect which may hereafter be produced on Christian art by the further evo lution of Catholic opinion. M. Alexander Dumas' sayings and doings furnish a large amount of material to the newspapers. A writer in the London Ntics gives an account of a visit to him, and de scribes his personal appearanoe. " He is t 11, stalwart, very pale, and his first aspect is proud, cold, stern, and a little defiant. Bat be quickly thaws and shows himself the most fascinating of causeurs. He is gay, cordial, vivacious and simple; full of anecdote, wit and laughter. He seems to wear his heart upon his sleeve, and to hear his conversation is like drinking champagne of a fiue vintage. He talks freely about anything and every thing." A controversy has arisen concerning recent biographies of Poe. In Mr. Widdieton's "Memorial Edition" of his poems the bio graphical sketch by Mr. John H. Ingram was given, prefaced at Mr. Gill's request with a statement that a considerable portion of the material was gathered from Wm. F. Gill's lecture on the poet. Mr. Ingram, who is editing tbe four-volume edition of Poe which A. & C. Black, of Edinburgh, are publishing, now asserts, on tbe contrary, that he used no material furnished in any way by Mr. Gill, but that the latter made free use, without ac knowledgment, of material which Mr. Ingram had forwarded at his request. TIIE BOWEN TORPEDO. For more than a year the daily Graphic has maintained that in reference to the Brooklyn trouble Mr. Henry G. Bowen held the key to tbe situation. This has been repeatedly stated in our columns, and notably expressed in a recent cartoon which the event ot tbe day will vividly recall. Mr. Bowen has been the silent sphinx through years of clatter and calumny and detraction. He has been urged, entreated, badgered, and bullied to speak, but bas held bis peace, even at the risk of losing friends and reputation, till com pelled to break silence by the gammons of Plymouth Church through its committee. His response to Mr. White's bill of griev ances has broken like a bombshell in the camp and has created both ontnsion aud consternation. It is the most significant tes timony yet offered of the terrible guilt of Mr. Beecher, and presented as it is, with evi dent reluctance, under compulsion, in the most solemn mannre, challenging investiga tion and inquiry by proper authorities before a regularly constituted tribunal, it falls with almost crushing effaot on those who have pried it down, like an enormous mountain rock, upon their unprotected heads. Most of Mr. Bowen's letter is taken up with the incidents of tbe controversy with Mr. White, and details which are mere prelimi nary to the main statement Tbe substance of the charges against Mr. Bowen is that if he knew anything against Mr. Baeoher he has not distinctly said so, but by a discreet and ominous silence has conveyed the impres sion that he had damaging tacts in his possession. Mr. Bowen replies that he had euteied into a solemn oom pact to keep quiet, and it is not his habit to break his written word, even though Mr. Baeoher has done so. But why shonld he speak? If it is facts that are wanted there are a plenty of them plain as day. If Ply mouth Ghuroh wants charges against its pas tor, why does it not deal with those already preferred? "Why summon me to the front?" he asks. "Do you think I can use plainer or stronger language than that much-abused lady I member of this ohurch—whose awful charges against the pastor have stunned all Christendom? I think if such language as hers remains unheeded, no other voice, though one should rise from the dead to speak, would ever reach your ears." He says that daring the trial he was waited on one bright sunny morning and told if he would come forward aud testify in behalf of Mr. Beecher the arms of Plymouth Church would be thrown around him and he " would be the greatest man—almost—in the country." He refused, aud in referring to the circum stance says, "I can not help remembering, however, how easily—by simply violating my own conscience and telling a lie—I could have been applauded then and to-day as one of the most worthy members of Plymouth Church." In other words, he could have re lieved Beecber only by lying. Then he adds, respecting Mr. Beecher: " I bave heard attentively, but with pro found grief, what has been said to me con fidentially against him. I have felt my heart stirred to its depths for dear friends who, years before the present scandal was pub lished, sorrowfully begged my counsel, as they assured me that their pastor and mine had craftily betrayed the sanctity of home— the very charge long after presented to me by Theodore Tilton in regard to his own home. I never can or will be base enough to allow a single name to be bruited before the world, although I am now ready to testify to the essential facts before any proper tribunal. These disclosures I heard with a fad heart, and tried to accept toe evidence brought to me that Mr. Beecher was grief-stricken and penitent * * * * * Now, being summoned here to speak, and to speak the truth and nothing but tbe truth, I solemnly give it as my unwavering opinion, in view of all the facts and evidence presented to me, that the Rav. Henry Ward Beecber, without even the shadow of doubt in my mind, is guilty of the awful crimes of adultery, perjury and hypocrisy. This, I say again, ana before the bar of this committee, is my deliberate opinion, and I may be per mitted to affirm that I give it calmly, without malice, and with no other than a sincere de sire to do my duty faithfully to God aud to man, to the Church and to the world. " This terrible arraignment at once explodes and blows away all the devices with which the bottom foots of the scandal have been covered up. The whole black business is re opened and exposed to the daylight, and no canning of lawyers, and no subterfuges of advisory or other councils, and no patent eocleeiasticrl whitewashing can ever cover the loatbesome and pntrid mass. For Mr. Beecher and Congregationalist clergymen to talk about ecclesiastical usage and denominational dis cipline iu the faoe of this document is as sheer a piece of folly as to hold a convention to de cide ou the best means of scouring the door plate of a house on fire with a barrel of gun powder in its cellar. Mr. Bowen has thrown down a challenge which to pas3 by is confession and jp pick up may be death. . He invites ^^estigation. He wise ly refrains from giving facte and names and evidence. He does not uncover his resources, but intimates in the plainest language that his position is fortified and that he has a whole arsenal of proofs to draw from. T hia invests the matter with terrible serious ness. The real issue now is as to the guilt of Mr. Beecber, and every attempt to evade it by talking about the Congregationalist polity will tend to confirm a sad but deepening im pression of the truth of the blasting allega tions against him and drag him down. The truth zqust come out, let it smite whoever it may, and the sooner it is told the quicker the agony will be over and the country will be relieved of what has become a nuisance (. X. THE ALMANACH DE GOTHA. From tbe Almanach de Gotha, for 1876, it appears that there are thirty-eight sovereigns and three republics in Europe. The Pope is the eldest sovereign (83) and has reigned the longest—29 years; Emperor William comes next, and is 78; theCzir is 57; Queen Victoria, 56; Victor Emanuel, 55; Francis Joseph, 44, and Alfonso, the youngest of all, 18. San Marino is the oldest republic, Switz3riand is the next, and Franoe is the youngest of all, having been born at Sedan in 1870. There are now officially recognized and respected 134 orders of chivalry, including those of the While Elephant, of Siam, and Bolivar's Bast, of Venezuela. The second part of the Almanach is de voted to princes, including all the noble fami lies of Great Britain, Germany, France and Laly. Two hundred and sixteen pages are accorded them for tha description of these 161 houses, embracing the entire stock of European aristocracy worth taking off one's hat to; since the remaining driblet-', not men tioned in the Almanach de Gotha, are indeed small beer. Thus, thirty-eight monarchs and 161 family stocks rule over 200,000,000 peo ple. The Irish Duke of Abercorn heads the class, which is appropriately footed up by the Grecian Prince Ypsilanti; between this Alpha and Omega the others stand. In tbe chronicle of no'able events for the year, end ing June 30, 1875, tbe most notable in America is tbe following: "1875, Augast, Gen. Grant puts forward for a third term his candidacy to the Presidency of tbe Republic." Jx *9% __COMMERCIAL^__ OFFICE NEW ORLEANS BULLETIN, I Saturday Evening, Feb. 12, 1876.
