Temple Bar.
It wag morning In tbe garden,
Llfo stirred among the trees,
Where low love whispers answered
To the wooing of the bretxe.
And the birds were singing matins,
Mot a Tolco was ont of tune,
And the dew lay on the roses
That crowned the month of June.
And away tberc In the dlstanco
Bhono a vision of the sea,
And I plucked a rote for Molly
As she crossed tho lawn to ma,
O the glory of the sunshine I
O the murmur of the hives I
As we stood there onco, together
In the morning of our lives.
And the subtle, saintly fragrance
Possessed me unawares,
That floats about a maiden
Just risen from htr prayers.
And the parrot bowed his top-knot,
To her Huger, from the perch,
As the coftly hummed the hjran tune
We ha, sung lsst night at church.
Then half ashamed, 1 muttered,
"Here's a rose for you, but sec,
Deep In my clumsy finger,
Tho thom remains with me I"
Straight from bcr housewife dainty,
She brought a needle bright,
And sought the cruel mischief out,
With skillful finger light.
O Molly.tetlll I see you,
As yon there beside me stood,
In girlish, simple beauty,
God knows that you were good.
And I hear you softly saying,
"Do I hurt you t docs It smart 1"
And I could not make an answer
For the beating of my heart.
The silent hills stood watching us
That sunlit, summer morn,
When from my aching finger
You drew away tbe thorn.
Ah I little witch, you haunted me
Thro' many a lonesome day,
When I wandered from your garden
With pilgrim feet away.
And by and by. In cv 11 hour,
t I asked you enco again,
To pluck a thotn from out my heart,
And ease my bosom's pain.
And you would not, or you could not,
But you turned with tears away,
And the dream of manhood fsded
For ever and for aye.
The time of flowers Is over,
The rain falls cold and chill,
The mist comes creeping sadly '
O'er every sunlit hill.
Tet I can suffer for your sake,
Since better may not be ;
It you may keep the rose, dear,
The thorn may bid with me.

Kind reader, what would bo your im
pressions if, landing on a wild island in
tho middle of tho Pacific, from a na
tivo vessel in which yourself and but
ono other whito man had for several
weeks been voyaging, and, tho regular
provisions having given out, had during
tho last weok shared tho baked dog "po
rco" and bread fruit which tho natives
on tho vessol had provided for their
own uso, you woro pleasantly accosted
by a well dressed gentleman who, on
learning your names invited you both
to breakfast with himP And what fur
ther would bo your impressions if, after
accompanying your host through tho
paths of a garden of several acres in
extent, in which Chlncso laborers wero
attending to tho caro of myriads of
thoso rich foliago and fruit plants that
grow only in the tropics, you arrived at
a largo southern stylo cottage, with
double verandas and woll shaded piaz
zas, and wcro then placed in caro of a
native attendant who ushered you into
ono door of a well lurnislicd dining
room, with table covered with a plenti
ful supply of choicofish, lowl, fruit, and
Iho usual accompaniments of cofftc,
cream, hot biscuit, etc., sorved in china
and silver ware, and, just as you wcro
contrasting tho defects in jour own per
sonal appearance, tho usual elcganco of
which had been sadly marred by the
threo or four weeks of voyaging as
aforesaid, your host ontored accompa
nicd by somowhat moro than a dozen
smiling, well dressed and decidedly at
tractivo young American ladios, of tho
maturo ages that aro included between
the eighteenth and twentioth years of a
Yankeo girl's life, and with tho semi
introduction of giving them your names,
but not responding with theirs, comt
cously Invited all present to bo seated
and attack tho viands? Wouldn't you
at onco recall the story of tho magician
who stolo Aladdln'rf wonderful lamp
and, by its powor, carried tho palaco
and tho princess into tho remoto deserts
of Africa?
Well, this was my first thought ono
bright morning in Soptembor many years
ago, when I was a wanderer in 'foreign
parts," und my friend Dr. 8. and myself
together bad exactly tho exporienco
abovo described. I never was so much
puzzled. Our host was Mr. Pitman, an
American gentleman who bad married
tho sister of Kamohamaha III., King of
mo banawicn islands, and, somewhat
liko tho Marquis of Lorao of recent
days, had, as a dowry gilt, been ap
pointed head man or king's roproucnta
tivo and ruler oyor this, tho largest and
most remoto island of tho groupo. So
far all was clear, but whoro did thoso
blooming, chatty, llvoly Yankee girls
como from? However, our curiosity
didn't prevent us from attending to tho
eatables, though possibly, botweon bits'
wo jolucd in tho goneral conversation
and odcavored by tho charm of our
language and manner to counter bnl
an co tne niiserawo delects in our gen
cral appearance Tho ladles evidently
appreciated and enjojod our bewilder
mcnt, but, notwithstanding our covert
soml-querics as to whoro their homes
were, gavo no intimation as to their
names and prior associations. Break.
iast ended, our host bowod us towards
tho outor door and led his party througli
tho other, and wo wcro again alone.
With ono iarcwell glanco at tho en
chanted castlo, S. and Ego made i
straight lino and rapid movomont to tho
nearest outlet, and didn't brcatho freely
till wo had put at least a tnilo between
oursolves and our fair incognitos.
In a fow hours wo woro tho guests of
another gentleman, also n government
official, to whom I had letters of intro
duction, and thou, aiter a mutual smllo,
learned tho explanation. It was tho days
when tho Nantucket whalo fishery was
in its primo, and tho ladies were, re
speotlvoly, tho nowly wedded wives of
Captains of diffrrcnt ships, it boing a
Nantucket custom that on attaining
commando! a ship tho your.g Captain
marries tho girl to whom ho had long
beforo plighted his faith, but, as Nan
tucket girls novor marry below tho rank
of Captain, couldn't earlier wed, and
his brldo accompanies him on his first
voyago as a marino bridal tour. Dur
ing tho summer months tho whales arc
found north of Bohrlngs Straits, and as
this was too cold and unattractlvo n re
gion for fominlno tastes, tho brides wcro
usually loft in Mr. Pitman's amplo man
sion until tho roturn of their lords,
when they again embarked and accom
panied them In iho winter months' voy
ago to tho southern whalo haunts. Bless
their pleasant laces, I wonder If any ol
them aro still living, and it they re
member that breakfast?

Tho picture of Holland Houso na It
wtys In tho early part of this century Is
ono familiar to most readers, but thoy
will find not a few details skillfully filled
in by Mr. Havwnrd. Ono curious nnl-
sodo bolonging to nn oarlior time tho
attachment botweon Georgo HI. and
Lady Sarah Lennox is told at consid
erable length, nud makes a most inter
esting story. Lady Sarah was residing
unuor ner sister s caro at Holland Houso
when tho kinu's attachment boeamo s-
rious. Sho was then in her sixteenth
year. Sho was very cold In hor demeanor
to him. Ho mado her what was roallv
an offer thr'oueh her cousin. Lad v Subiui
Strange ways, who had said sho intended
to remain in town till tho coronntton.
"Thoro will bo no coronation," snld
tho king, "till thero is a queen, and I
think that your friend is tho fittest per
son for It. Tell your lriend so from
me."
"But whon ho asked In norson wlint
sho thought of tho message all tho re
ply ho got was:
'Nothing, sir."
"Nothing comes of nothing," was his
answer.
Nevertheless, sho seems to havo been
voxed whon tho announcement of his
approaching marriago with tho Princess
Charlotte ol Mecklenburg was mado.
"i siiau taKo care," alio writes to
Lady Susan, "to show that I am not
mortified to nnybody; but if it bo true'
that ouo can vox anybody with a re
served, cold manner, ho shall havo it, I
promise hlra."
Sho seemed, however, to havo con
soled herself first with iv squirrol, whoso
sisjjjness trouoiou nor moro than tho
king's inconstancy, and then with a
hedge-hog. Alf,or all, sho was littlo
moro than a child. Sho was ono ot tho
qucon's bridesmaids. Tho kini. it is
said, never took his oyes off her during
tho wholo ceremony, nnd when tbo
words "As thou didst send this blessing
upon Abraham and Sarah" wero
reachod, was visibly affected. After tho
marriage, when tho company paid thoir
nomn(?o to tno new queen, an out Jacob-
no nooie, L,ord Westmorland, who had
been persuaded to como to court, nud
who was moro than half blind, knelt
boforo Lady Sarah. Georgo Selwyn,
hearing of tho incident, said:
"Oh, you know, ho always loved
Pretenders."
Ladv Sarah becamo tho mother of tho
Naplers by her second marriage doub
less a higher vocation than being tho
mothor of a royal family.
