In Nature there’s no blemish but the
None can be called deform’d but the
unkind.— Shakespeare.
But, all the same deep in her heart,
Rankled this thought, and rankles
When love is at its best one loves
So much that he cannot forget.—
Helen Hunt.
Hon. Samuel J. Tilden expired at
his residence, Geystone, in New York
this week. Mr. Tilden has made an
exceptional record as a wise and astute
statesman, his record as a politic public
officer remains with us. His soul has
passed to a higher country where higher
acts and loftier motives than mere states
menship make there the record of each
Gov. Ireland, of; Texas, has pro
tested against the murder of Rasures an
American citizen, who was killed in
Mexico. In his dispatch to Secretary
Bayard concerning the outrage the gov
ernor says that if the United States
government does not resent this, Texas'
will. And any one who ever saw Gov
ernor Ireland will feel assured that that
doughty sixfooter atiH' a half, will do
just as he says.
Miss Amelie Rives, ths young
Southern authoress whose “ Brother of
Dragons ’ has excited considerable in
terest was lately described to us by a
schoolmate, as “ rather low, stout, with
a profusion of blonde hair, pretty brown
eyes, a charming manner, fine conver
sational powers, with also exquisite
taste as to dress.” This is the society
Miss Rives. Then the same Miss
Rives has a talent for “ hard and indus
trious study, an earnest and thoughtful
tone, with also a very kindly and gentle
The musical ~Siih77F Southern
ladies has long been unquestioned, some
ot the finest performers upon the harp
were found South of Mason and Dixons
hne “ before the war.” Any evening
over the grounds of a Southern house is
heard the soft full vibration of guitar
music. The piano execution of South
ern ladies is brilliant, technical and of-
ten originating especial harmonic
strains.. Now a new musical industry is
to spring up in Tennessee even the buil
ding of a large manufactury for pianos,
where musicians can order their instru
ments, examine their capabflity, test
sounding board, strings and the vibrant
or singing quality of their instrment be

Harper’s Bazar, ot August 14, has
a little humorous legend which New
Yorkers will probably be assured, con
tains no reference of a personal charac
ter. Young Miss Goose steps forth
from a golden egg into the social world
at Newport, perhaps—Sir Puppy Pug, a
foreign noble, makes Messrs. Coot and
Loon jealous by his engrossing atten
tions. Sir Puppy proposes—and the
little fowl says yes, with a hiss (like a
goose,) which frightens Sir Puppy away.
The forlorn little social toast—a goose
might be served upon a toast you know
—is told by her mother that only a goose
would use her native tongue in compa
ny.” Being one of the most graceful
bathers of the beach she meets young
gander, also a very graceful bather, and
they have such “nice times,” but her
mother plucks young goosie by the
wing and infers that the gander may be
a coachman, perhaps—in the livery or
fether of Miss Goosie’s forefathers—For
all that the little fowl flits with young
gander, and over plenty of water, with
the moon in a cloud the little pair having
an “ affinity ” sail off for a foreign tour.
The Coots, the Loons and the Geese of
fashion to the contrary, and this little
summer idyl, in the idle summer month
has its refrain by the sea shore, every
year, has it not?
Abbe Liszt died at Beyruth at mid
night, July 31st. fl bus there passed
from earth at the most calm and solumn
hour of the twenty-four, a spirit of
creative genius in the highest art of
music. Franz Liszt was born in Raid
ing, Hungary, October 51, 1811, and
appeared in concert for the first time at
the age of nine years; he was a pupil
of Czerny. After having made some suc
cessful concert tours upon the continent,
he produced in 1825 an opera “ Don
Sanch, the production however was
not a success. After studying the per
formances of Paganini upon the violin,
Liszt resolved to make the piano his
future; with application, and an attent
ive appreciation of harmony, he became
in a course of years the maestro of pi
ano playing in all the world. In April
2 5j 1865, Liszt took the orders of a
priest and received the tonsure in the
chapel of the Vatican in Rome. Since
then he has devoted his abilities to relig
ious music. Not long since a young l
American girl had
