I went from been t house tohouse; and reserving the cottage stand with the geranium plant in it until the gronpi last, feeling quite sure that there, at any ong rate, I should meet with some amount of Hnmb civility. And I was not mistaken, for on shore knocking, a clean-looking woman opened antic the door and invited me to walk in. Every- howls thing bore the mark of extreme poverty. wild In the only chair in the room was seated a riads, young girl, apparently in the last stage of mnltu consumption. Very emaciated and weak Thi she appeared but there was an expres- most sion in her face which excited interest ering e than compassion, an expression of thi hich I an hardly describe ; it seemed to away have its origin within, and to be quite in- any dependent of external circumstances. powe I asked her a few questions about her lg a health which she answered simply and with- me out one word of complaint. Then I drew beine her attention to the geranium, and said I the hoped from seeing it there that she was as er is fond of flowers as I was. A slight color whic tinged her cheek, and she smiled, and she can was about to reply, when her mother The said- Ofe "Oh, there, I don't know what we should ly w do without the flower ; it is everything to of a her; how she does treasure it, to be to te sure." I asked what made it so preciousy ; tou bad it been a gift from some one she gra: loved t ros "Not that exactly," she said, "and yet mo it is a gift, a gift from my Father's hand, doe always saying to me: Consider the lilies, rig how they grow ; they toilnot, neither do Eel they spin ; and yet I say unto you, that tud even Solomon in all his glory was not ar- Mo, rayed like one of these. Wherefore, if terr God so clothe the grass of the field, shall nine He not much more clothe you, O ye of coo little faith 1" 0 I took her band in mine, and silently woo thanked God for giving me this lesson of mit faith and patience. e o She continued, however, seeing that I was silent. "My beautiful plant, it has a twi little story too. When I was a little girl, ce we lived at the other end of the city, up a im court that was better than this, for mother mb was better off then, and poor father was hio. alive. Opposite to us lived a cobbler, slo who was always at work, night and day, gin I used to think. Let any one go into the an yard, be never looked off from his work ; Te there he sat with a large scarlet geranium rep growing in an old earthen pan on one side up of him, and a thrush in a wicker cage on we the other. As a child, it was my great de- ed light to slip out and stand to watch the old co man work. I remember well one day when lie said wE to me : Little maid, which do you like at best, my flower, bird, or the old man him- at self You seem very fond of coming to tl see one or the other of us." it "I think I like you," I said, "and the bh other." • "God bless you," said he, "give me your in little hand. Ah ! it is a long year ago al since old Johnny held a little child's hand w in his like this," and be wiped a tear away fe with his shirt-sleeve. I was half frighten- t ed, and as soon as he released me I ran away; but before anotler day had passed, t there I was again making friend with old t Johnny. He told me another day foany little stories about his bird, which was a great n et of his, and then added: "Do youn b know, little one, when I am busy at work, r my geranium and this good old bird talk h to me of God. I look at them and think f' of the wonderful hand that made them, and of the loving Saviour who used to u teach his dleisciples to consider threm. I t oIam a lonely old man now; once I had two little maids to cheer my home ; now these c are all my worldly treasures." " We left his neighborhood two or three t years since, and then lie gave na e that h plant, hoping it would be as great a com fort to m as it had been to him. Iwent out to service and left the plant withe mother, and am sorry to say, soon forgot the good things he told me, for you see, ma'am, they had not got into my heart. 1 Then I was taken ill, and was obliged to go home to mother, and poor father fell from the scaffolding of the new Hall, and I was brought home dead, and, oh i it was a I sad house, and in my trounbe I began to think ef old Johnny's sayings. Fourteen months ago 'ti since I was first taken ill. • At first it seemed so hard to be laid by, but old Johnny heard I was ill, and came round to see me, and talked so beautifully to me abont death, and heaven, and read ing to me bits out of his prayer-book, that I was led to find salvation in Christ, and now I am only waiting for God to take me to himself." She looked up and smiled so sweetly as she uttered these last words that, notwith standing her pale, wan face, I thought I had never seen any one so beautiful. I have given her words as nearly as I can remember; but there were many interrup tions, occasioned by the oppression of her breathing and her cough. She lingered for a few weeks, during which I saw her many times. One morning, just as I was leaving home for a few days, her mother came to my house to tell me she was gone, and brought me, at her desirer her precious gsraalum. -it staeds in the same old pot * 1 em bL rliohd look at my plant, and think of te .young girl to whose suffering it had been such a balm. Many of us little know how much plea sure we can give to the poor by the gift of flowers. In sickness, especially in linger ing illness, a little nosegay of simple flow ers will often help to relieve many an hour of suffering. I know of one good woman who visits much amongst her poorer peigh bora, who devotes part of her garden, of which she is very fond, to the cultivation of flowers, on purpose to>cull them for bouquets to decorate the'blessed Virgin's altar, and to take with her on her errands of mercy, and I wish that more would fol low her example.-Guardiafn ngel. .The Coast of California. [From Picturesque America-Appleton & Co.J The purpose of this article is to depict that portion of California that is washed by the surf of the Pacific, and which, for the most part, is walled in toward the east by the mountains of the Coast Range. This strip of territory is of variable breath; sometimes the mountains recede from the shore as if d>eading the fury of the ocean, and sometimes they press boldly to its very brink, and run out huge promontories far into the proper domains of the many voiced deep. The vicinity of such places, for many miles, bears the impress of this eternal contest, in the shape of huge mass es of basaltic and trap rocks, which have been torn apart by the waves, and which stand sometimes isolated, sometimes in groups in the midst of the waters. All along the coast line, from Eureka, on SHumbolt Bay, to Sonoma County, the shore is rendered interesting by these gig s antic fragments, around which the wind howls with fruitless fury, and where the wild birds of the ocean congregate in my riads, deafening the tourist with their tu Smnltnona cries. The inhabitants of the coast are, for-the most part, Americans, but there is a ling- b ering remnant of the Spaniard, and a trare thr of the Russian dating back from the far- chb away times when the Russian Fur Com- tel pany was established here, and was a the power in the land. The means of travel- pre ing are twofold-the mud-wagon in sum- abl mer and the stage in winter-the stage kit being of that ponderous variety known as gal the Concord. A pleasanter way than eith- q er is to go on horseback; and the mustangs, ac which though small in size, are excellent, ev can be purchased for a moderate sum. ro The roads are not very good, it must be co confessed; and there are bad bits, especial- an ly where the track winds round the base of a moantain. But they are good enough bl to the contented mind, and stage communi- ci cation has never been interrupted. The g tourist will find little scenery of sufficient grandeur to interest him until he ap proaches Cape Mendocino. Here tho t mountains, which previously were low down upon the line of the horizon, come T right up to the sea. After crossing the Eel River, a stream of considerable magni- n tude, the road winds along the skirts of Mount Pierce, a huge mountain, which r terminates a long range of high hills, run- C ning parallel to and not far from the sea- a coast. The sides of Mount Pierce are positively covered with the famous red wood ; and the eye ranges over miles and miles of this magnificent tree without de tecting any other kind. Some of these are no less than three hundred feet high and twelve feet in diameter, and the magnifi cence of these mountain-forests can well be imagined. In the early morning, as the r mud-wagon painfully climbs up the foot s hills, the eye delightfully watches the mist slowly departing from the tall tops of these r, giants. A thick veil lies upon the cliffs and the sea, also unillumined by the sun. To the left, however, slanting arrows of red light come up beside the crags and fall Le upon the columnar trunks of the red n woods. The deep green leaves seen gild ,- ed at the edges, and the bark of cinnamon Id color glows under the red rays. Above, half-way up the 'trees, there is a point d where the early sunlight and the mist are at strife. At this place, the mist wreathes and circles about under the influence of t the sun, and this movement communicates w itself slowly, very slowly, to the deep tt bank of mist above, where the grays are hi pare, and have no contact with the glow- at ing arrows of Phmobus Apollo. The sky le above is wonderfully clear, tinged a little bh with saffron back of the mountain, and a D few stars tremble lazily over the deep, dark ti pall of gray fog that overhangs the ocean. We can hear the slow, solemn pulsing of it the waves and the roar of the breakers as V they beat upon the rocks. A few light, wandering cirri suddenly become visible overhead, a tongne of fire licks the top most crag of Mount Pierce, and warms its barrenness. The clondlets become a pale a red the mist upon the trees creeps up higher, and more and more of the dense foliage becomes visible. In five minutes, P while we are gazing at the light moving upon the crags of the mountain-side, and, the mist departing from the red-woods upon its broad flanks, all, all has become clear ; and seaward the eyes are charmed with such a bit of rugged grandeur as the artist has depicted. The cliffs are not high, but along them are the fragments that the sea in its fury has overwhelmed after cen turies of never-ending warfare. In a kind of inlet, standing like the monument of some great one in a market-place, is an isolated rock of fantastic shape. It is of basalt, seamed and scarred very strangely. The sea has worn a passage through the base, through which the waters plash and rage unceasingly. The height of the arch thus made gives as an idea of the fury of the storms that have beat upon this tower of the sea-birds. If this did not exist, we might infer it from the difference of color in the rock. Above, the tones are pure gray ; but below, where the tempest reaches, of a dark brown. The crest is of a dazzling white, from the guano of the wild-fowl that inhabit there, and breed, and bring up their young. In the early morning they are silent until the mist has lifted ; then one starts up, and he goescir cling round the cliff, pouring out harsh and discordantcries, then another joins in, and another, until all the adult birds are on the wing, and the rock is left in posses sion of the young ones, that scream for food as long as they can see a single bird in the air. In a few minutes, of all the r thousands of birds that were circling about, r not half a dozen are in sight. All have gone a-fishing in such places as they are acquainted with ; and, if one might linger, I doubtless he would see the birds re turn one by one with food for tbeir young t ones. Among the inhabitants of suoch I rocks the pelican, the cormorant, and the I larg of a-gull, a the most con spicious, but occasionaly there is a fowl called the murre, whose eggs are consider ed a great deliacey, and are sold by hun dreds of thousands. Nothing -an be more tumultuous or less pacific than the waters of the Pacific Ocean . alog the Mendocino coast. Where there Oia sandy beach, which is not often, it is ' pleasant to wateh the incoming waves, and Lo to con pare them with those of the Atlan tic. We at once perceive that there is a c considerable difference. In the Atlantic the surf is seldom more than six feet high, and the serried line of waters that comes o0 dashing onward is rarely more than two hundred yards long. In fact, gazing at w the sea that breaks upon the Long-Branch P shore, or upon the sands of Cape May, or v upon the western side of Martha's Vine yard, or upon the petrified beach of Santo Domingo, one can see without difficulty ten or a dozen waves breaking on the shore dor advancing in line, all within the field of d vision afforded by one glance. It is not so r here. The waves, in the first, are not so frequent. "Accustomed to the Atlantic a . quick pulsation, the traveler waits with 7; impatience, even with a degree of pain, 1 for the roar of the breakers on the Pacific c' oast, and has about concluded that the ssea has given the thing up as a bad job, B when the tremendous boom bursts sudden Sly and unexpectedly upon his ear. Then, Sthe waves are twelve feet high and a mile in length, and advance with a solemnity of motion which words cannot describe. Ve The curves described by the falling crests ch of such waves are infinitely fluer than any n thing which the Atlantic presents; and the 1i boiling fury with which they crash up on on the beach and churn the sands is, at he first sight, appalling. Around such iso g- lated rocks as those presented by the artist hdtheyrageand raven, like the dogs which the poets fabled around Scylla. All along the Mendocino coast they have worn the cliffs a- into strange and wondrous forms, beating out caverns where the lower part is con glomerate rock, and series of arched cellars g- into which tons of sea-weed and debris are Une thrown. The basalt, which is the leading ar- character of the crust, is not uniform in m- texture, some parts being very much softer a than others. Wherever this occurs in the el- proximity of the waters, they have invari Lm- ably scooped oat the soft rock, making all age kinds of mystic arches, siren rings, and as gate-ways of Poseidon. This is not infre ith- quent, and occasionally happens in spots igs, accessible to the human foot, sometimes nt, even in close neighborhood to the stage um. road. The surface is covered with a rank, ecoarse grass, which even mules disdain, l and which the wandering goat will not even look at. Sometimes a cactus will 'u. bloom along the cliffs, and there is a ape. nti- cies of thistle, with very handsome bluish ghe green leaves and a large yellow-flower. A RouIANTI LIFE.-A very amiable and truly Catholic gentleman died recently at the St. Addresse, near iavre, France. i, This was the Duke de Rianzares, whose ro- it mantic career will, in all probability, fur- ti nish subjects for the novelists of the future. The Duke was of a very humble originand i remarkably handsome, in short an Adonis. Chosen on account of his splendid fgure, fo as a gentleman of the royal guarde of u Madrid, he one day formed part of the n escort of Queen Christina, then the youth- r ful widow of Ferdinand VII. The Queen was going to the Shrine of Atocba, and on leaving the church dropped her handker- C chief. The guard picked it up and at once restored it to her Majesty with such grace that he at once won her heart. She or dered him to walk by her litter and con versed with him all the way back to the * palace. The next day he was promoted to e the rank of usher and invited to the court balls. Three weeks afterwards he was pri * vately married to the Queen, and their f marriage was publicly made known in 1 1844. Fernando Munoz, for such was his name, was now created Duke and grandis simo of Spain. He followed Christina into exile and both have lived together in the , most exemplarxy fshion ever since. The it Duke was exceedingly modest, never in 0 terfered in politics and occupied himself > principally with the charitable concerns of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, of es which he was a most zealous member. All P the royal family of Spain was attached to re him, and he died in the arms of his wife r- and her daughter, Queen Isabella II. IHe ýy leaves several children, amongst whom the le beautiful Princesses Czartoriski and Del Drago are the best known. The good gen rk tleman used to visit every day some poor n. person, incoguito, and spent much of his 0 money in decorating the Church of St. a Vincent de Paul, Paris.-Catholic Thciew. A writer in the Engineer, in discussing ii the question as to whether it will be pos- 1 sible to run a locomotive engine and train at the speed of one hundred miles an hour, a presents the following interesting facts re garding the average rates of express trains, past and present : In England, the aver age speed on the best mail-coach lines, in 1829 and 1830, was a little over ten miles an hourj- in the following year this rate was advanced to thirty miles. At present , the highest railway speed in the wor'd are attained on the Great Western Railway, England,.wbich may be taken roundly at fifty miles an hour. Although it is said that Brunel once traveled from Swindon to Loudon at. the rate of eighty miles an hour, the writer expresses his belief that "we have never been able to obtain the shadow of a proof that this speed has been reached under any circumstances or at any time whatever on any railway." In one instance, a train on the Great Northern .Railway, consisting of sixteen cars, drawn by one of Sterling's great outside-cylinder express engines, running on a level or slightly-falling gradient, attained the un precedented speed of seventy miles an hour. And the Yarmouth express, on the Great Eastern read, sometimes has reached the speed of sixty-four miles an hour down the Brentwood bank. In the United States, on the Boston and Albany road, the fifty-four miles between Springfield and Worcester were run by an engine with sixteen-inch cylinder, twenty-two-inch stroke, and six and one-half-inch drive wheels in fifty-eight minutes. Much of this run was done at the rate of neatly seventy miles an hour. In view of these facts, it is believed that on a first class line a speed of sixty or seventy miles an hour may be available with safety, though a much higher velocity could not b3 attained without incurring enornous risk of de railment. M. de Fonvielle, the French astrouomer, ex K presses the opinion, founded on the state of h the loe in the polar sess, that the coming win e ter in our latitudes will be more than ordina. rily severe.
