In the heart of Louisiana,
Dwelt a planter bold and true,
Mid tha venlaut, sweat savannah,
By the rolling, dark bayou. ,
Ever in the forest lonely, ' ' '
Eve and morning, night and noon,
Untried he the fox and squirrel,
Or the 'pos.iom and raccoon.
Though be was a modern Nimrod,
Yet ha bora no hunter's name,
For his mother's heart bad always,
Burned with poetic flame.
"A'iMcior' are still "potta,"
But a name might make him one,
So she called him Laratheta
By that name he fit aad won.
Long had Lara roamed the wildwood,
Dread of e'en the eat'mouot big
Dread too oft r straying ehickens,
Or a neighbor's errant pig
Till he spied, bene.it h a holly,
Standing on a moss-grown bank,
A drar maid, beneath whose glances,
All his heart wilhin him tank.
Long he stood and gazed upon her,
While she, like a timid fawn,
uazeu up first at Larathela,
Gazed down next upon Ihe lawn.
When at length, with ardent longing,
Spoke he in the wildwood dark, .
She, as fearing some deep wronging,
Ran as ne'er did "Culty Sark."
Straight to her papa's plantation,
Made she for tbe bayou bridge,
Veiling like the whole Creek nation,
As she eroised the nearest ridge.
Swift be followed, and imploring ;
"Would she for a dioment stop ?"
Hark! what meant that awful roaring
As he reached the bridge's top?
Gives him pause, yet ere consider-
Ation once could cross his mind,
Comes a bull with turted heal down,
And his tail erect behind,
Making straight at Laratheta,
Bellowing like a very curse
E'en hud Lara's name been Peter,
Could the bull have acted worse ?
' fcpeaVs'orlirihe "Dark Yzoo,'
What could Lnra do but go it,
Notwithstanding the bull's "boo?"
So, without a single thinking,
Headlong at the bull he goes
Almost meets him quicK as winking
Falling 'neath the bullock's nose.
As the bull went plunging over
'Gainst the bridge's tott'ring rail,
Laratheta rose, ami gazing
In the bayou, saw his tail:
Then lie ran on alter Pha-be,
(By the way, that was the name
Of the nymph who 'neath the holly
First had roused his passion's flame.)
She was on her father's bosom,
Clinging close unto his breast,
Caring naught not for Laratheta,
I.onj as there she could but rest.
Laratheta heeded not her,
B'lt spoke out with accents grim:
'Sir, your bull is in the water,
And 'twas I that buck'd at him."
Q iick the farmer stretched his hand foith,
Laratheta's palm to catch,
And he spoke out: '-Phajbe, stand foitb!
This young man is sure your match.
Take my bull rem out ihe water
'Twas my favorite bull, Ihe "Midge!"
And ihe man shall hare my daughter
Who did buck him off the firings t"
yearly Quaker Meetini: in New
York ended a week ago. The broad-brims,
after bringing a week's rain upon us, as
usual, have gone back to their farms and
meeting houses the conseqnence ot winch
is that we are now enjoying hue weather.
It is a reuii.rkuble fact in natural history,
that when the Quakers come to New York
it always rains ; but, whether the rain be
caused by the Quakers, or the Quakers by
the rain, is more than we know. We only
know that the two events come together,
invariably, and we should like to hear some
rational explanation of the mystery. It is
only two or three year since they changed
their time ot meeting Irom tha tirst to me
third week in May, but tha rainy weather
always awaits their arrival, nevertheless.

state of the tomb of the Emperor, will not

yeitM that the construction of the tomb of
the Emperor was In cotemplation, a varie
ty of plaus had been considered, and - ma
ny of ihnm, alter having been commenced,
were afterwards abandoned as not ln.inr
suited to the purpose intended. The crvpt
which was (iret formed was found not to bo
sufficiently large and deep, and the enlarg
ment of it required considerable, precau-
uuui in oruer not to endanger ihe solidly
of the dome. The circular portico limiting
me ipuce, me centre ot which was to be
occupied bv the sarcophagus, had in tha
first place been conceived without any spe
cial ornamentation, and was intended to be
remarkable for its extreme simplicity. It
was then thought that this construction
being of suoh a vast extent, ought to be
ornamented with bas-reliefs representing
the civil acts of the EmDeror: it was Alan
decided that the pillars supporting the cir-
cuiar emaoiaiure suouiu be ornamented
with the representation of different victo
ries. The sarcophagus, which is formed of
porphyry, brought from Korchoka, in Fin
land, is of an imposing and severe form.
and is completely finished. and bears a most
extraordinary polish. It is four yards long
by two wide. It is lined inside with Cor
sican granite, in order that, lying in Iris
coffin, the illustrious deceased" may, as ii
were, repose on materials brought from
his native soil. The tomb is raised on a
foundation of granite from the Vosses.
The cover, which is suppoited by wood
work, is brought as near as possible to the
sarcophagus, and has only to be pushed on
nonzoniany in order to cover it. On en
tering the church from the south door, on
the Pal ace Vauban, the Dome de Mansard
is seen at one cjup dc'ail. In approaching
nearer is seen the crypt, surrounded with a
rather massive balustrade. From the midst
of marbles of extreme whitenuss, stands up
in bold relief the satcopliagu?, reposing on
pavement oi mosaics ol extreme rich-
Beyond the crypt rises the lush altar.
this part of the decorations is composed of
colored marbles, which have the most su
perb effect. The altar is surmounted by a
statue o I our Savior on the cross, sculptured
by M. Trhpuetn. Semi-circular staircases,
turning to 'ke right and left, lead to the
door of another staircase, which leads di
rectly to the crypt. This part of the
monument, which is conceived in grand
proportions, is turned towards the nave of
the church. On the sides of the door,
whic'i is in bronze, stand two figures of old
men, composed as caryatides, and by which
it is intended to personify in some degree
the military and civil glory of the Emperor,
Over the entrance are written the follow-
ing lines, which expiess tho last wishes of
Napoleon: "Jc desire que ties cendres re-

The sarcophagus bears no name inscribed
on it, and it is that which surrounds it
which gives its signification to the tomb.
The twelve emblematical representations
of victories, the names of battles inscribed
on the pavement, the basreliefs intended to
call to mind the principal acts of imperial
administration this union ol military and
civil souvenirs, all equally glorious, and in
the centre tha isolated tomb, such is what
constitutes in its ensemble the monument ol
the Emperor. The ten Lasreliefs of the
circular portico have been executed by M.
Simart. One oi them represents a figure
in an antique dress, having in Iront two lo
males, representing the Roman and Galli
ciau cliurch, who are giving their hands to
each other, and in the coiner is a man
raising a cress. Under this composition is
engraved the word, "Concordat." The
other bnsreliefs represent the Cour des

the lemon ol honor, the council oi state,
great public works, commerce, manufac

In the centre of the chamber, called the
Chamber de I'Epee or de Ileliquaire, is a

Origin of Temperance in the South Wait
In May, 1$-!$, now just I wenty.five'y ears
ago, there was not, nor had there ever been,
a temperance organization, society, or pub
lic movement of any sort on the subject of1
cMipura nee in ims country, in lact, the
term, "temperance," had not the specific
and distinctive meaning, in common par

can d it !" and we determined to try.
So we mentioned the plan, very cautious

ed seven. Yve then organized ourselves
into a total abstinence society, held our
meetings secretly, at night, and in a few
months we numbered about twelve- o.
Our rules confined us to young men ex
clusively. In this way we continued rarl
of a year prsfoundiy secret. The
married inau we look into our association
was Thomas M'Uannold, a young lawyer.
He made us a temjicrauc? sjieuh. That was
the fust temperance speech ' ever made
