For the IIkkald.
Church of the Rock In OberstadU
So run the old tradition.
Told in ouerstadt.
How on're tliere lived two brothers
Down by the valley plat ;
One who was a hunter
Searching wood and glen.
One who was a ecbolar
Living by bis pen.
Now both were much ea-.inored
Of a sweet lovely maid.
Dwelling upon the mountains
'Within the softest glade.
Each knew not that t lie other
Ha l loved t'.ie same sweet face.
And climbed the eanie steep bluffs
To reach the same dear place.
A day while one was hunting
The other found the glade,
Where lived the lovely maiden
lu modesty arrayed.
But while This youth and maiden
Were happy In each other.
There happened iu liie other.
Politeness ruled the meeting,
Aud fairly all things eped.
No angry words were spoken,
And courteous things were said.
At length the youths departed
To cross the iiouulaitis home.
What p;used between the brothers
Will never more be known.
They quarreled fierce and angry.
The bitterest jealous bate
Had fired their biood and spirits
One fouu J a dreadful tate.
Down headioi g from the rociside
Toe stronger tnrew tue weak.
His body iii.in.leJ into shreads
Descended peak by pea.
As soon as done repealing
liu wept with bitter sorrow
Who wrought this frightful murder ;
Remorse came with the morrow.
Line Cunt be wanUered le.uinj
Each mail wuLi.u ta.e bis blood
His horud murder kepi his soul
lu lucifci's eeclhing liooU.
At List for very anguish
As penuance for ois crime.
He gave his useless forluntt
To build a church sublime.
He '.out; lit the very rockside
Dowu which his brother fell.
And there he bored, aud mined,
Aud strove uis grief to quell.
Within the mountain side
He du an auitue room
For church, choir a':d naive
lu dusk unearthly k'iooui.
Reneath the massive altar
He laid the lxst rem litis
Of him whose life be blasted ;
Aud here his end attains.
Twas Ions ago this happened.

William Welch, Esj., HtlUt.i Wis
My Dear Sir. You will doubtless
remember that in 13 i. it after the
defea.of General Scott for the Presi
dency, I wrote you, as you were then
chairman of Lhe State Ceii nil Wuig
Committee, saying that we ought to re
organize the Whig p trty on a n-w ba
sis, and name it the Republic in pirty.
I desire a copy of that lt-tter, if such a
thing be possible us that you have kep.
it till now. I thought I had a copy,
but I cannot find i .
Always vours truly,
Champiox s. Chase.
It is believed a lj ram n?n of : h-
Greek chambers means hat the king,
aided by British influence his tri
umphed over the war pirty an 1 Greece
wili not at present piriiuipite iu the
war. This lessens the coinp'ieatious
of the e;istern t i?s.io i. However Rus
sia's friends will consider this fur
ther step of the brittish ciVmst's an
tagonism to Russia, and will argue
that England induced this action of
Greece by forcible representation-.
Undoubtedly England's influence has
been strong for peace, but not ntces
sarily in a s?nse hostile to Russia and
possibly without the knowledge of the
British ministers. The time for Greek
action has hardly arrived, and Greece
looks rather to England than Russia as
her natural protector. It m iv be well
that the strained and uncertain rela
tions between the great powers has
checked the agitation which a month
ago threatened to drive Greece into,

The Temple of Diana.
Ephesus, one of the twelve Ionian
cities of Asia Minor, was fam ms iu
antiquity as containing one of the sev
en wonders of the world, the great
temple of Artemis, or Diunn. From
vtry early limes, Ephesus w.s a sacred
city; tiie fable ascribed its foundation
to the Amazons, ar.d the Amazonian
legend is connected with Artemis.
The first Ionian colonists in Lydia
found the worship of the goddess al
ready es.ab'.ished here in a primitive
temple, w hich wassiiperc dt d by a mag
niiicent structure. This Grecian tem
ple was sevei. tiiri-,s restored at the ex
pens" of all the Greek communities in
Asi i Minor. In thi year 3 VI B. C, it
was b iri I t the groan 1. but again
rebuilt in a s vie of far better splendor
than before, the work extending over
two h in li ed years. The latter temple
was 423 feet long and 220 feet wide.
" The fo an 1 it ions wer" sunk deep in
m irshy ground as a precaution against
ear; ha, u ike," says Pliny. There were
two rows of columns at the sides but
the front and bik porticos consisted
of eight rows of columns, placed four
feet deep. OatsiJs at the entrance of
the temple, stood ;i basin of porphyry
fifteen feet iu diameter, for the wor
shipers to lave and purify themselves
in. The internal denotation was of
the? m st sumptuous kind. The cedar
roof was supported on pillars of jasper
the doors were of cypress. The altar
was the work of Praxiteles, and it was
surrounded by many statutes, one of
gold. The image of the goddess her
self wiis roughly hewed out of wood
black wiJi age. and greasy with the
oil which it was custom iry to annoiut
it. When the Appostle Paul visited
Ephesus in the middle of the first cen
tury the worship of Diana, still flour
ishrd tliere.andthetemple retained all
i s i r g n .1 splendor. P.Lri.ns to
the venerated abode of the goddess
used to buy little models of the tem
ple in silver or precious stones, as me
men oes of their first visit, and as am
ulets to insure to them the protection of
theEphesian Diana. The Goths sacked
the city ami burned the tesiiple' about
two' years later, and in the reign of
Theodosius I, toward the end of the j
fourth century, the furious zeal of the
iconoclasts, or image breaker's, com-'
pleted the destruction. The ancient
city almost entirely disappeared be
fore the modern era, the very site of
tho temple being lost.
LADILS HAT.S AM) BONNETS.'
The Novelties Shown ia Paris and at
The newest bonnett at the Gainsbor
ough or the Vigee, so called because it
is the copy of the bonnet or rather
hat of the well-known famous por
trait of the Duchess of Devonshire
by Gainsborough, and also the hat of
the portrait of Mme. Vigee le Brutii
painted by herself. It was a largel
broad Italian straw, placed sideways
or rather turned up on one side, with
long white feathers, and is verv origin
al looking, elegant and becoming. Bon
nets are made very much of rice straw,
of Indian and Japanese stuffs and gauz
es assorted to color of the dress, and
the last fashion ornament is the In
dian bird of Paradise for these kind of
The gauzes are striped with divet3
colors, gold and transparent bands
The parasols are either quite small,
with sticks of cherry-wood, tnado so
as to put the sunshade sideways, ot
very tall, like umbrellas, quite plain,
without lace, ruches or fringes, ami
match the skirt of the dress. Foulard
dresses are much seen ; they are cool
and, if they get creased can be ironed
out to look always fresh and new.
Thi3 is a great advantage. The skirts
are made plain, and the polonaise of
the same colored ground, with a de
sign such as flowers or the bird's eye
pattern which is much seen. Then
all kinds of gauzes, such as Algier
ienne, with satin or chenille stripes,
Georgienne, glance or carneliene i:i
all shades; Indian and Ariucnieuno
damasked figured and striped ; organ
dy raousseline crep and bareges are
quite the fasion; these last over trans
parencies of silk.
The leading colors are white, black,
pink and blue, in every shade that the
chemist can produce ; the three nuan
ces of ivory, cream and blanc mat aro
great favorites and becoming to all
complexions. I went to see at tho
dressmaker.? some of the dresses for
the garden party to tie held next week
in honor of the Prince and Princet-i
Suxe-Coburg Gothu. The color vil
or is still worn, I find. There wns ii
dress of this yellow, intended for a
very elegant young countess, which 1
must describe if possible to you. The
skirt was faille vieil or, quite plain,
with long, fan-shaped train; polonaise,
pi incese of white striped crepe de chir.s
one stripe embroidered, one a jours or
open work, through which the yellow
ground was seen and draped with large
bows of large-sided faille, moss-green
garland, little yellow flowers and as
ters. There was a very hand?orni
dress of ecru or unbieached linen color
and rose Duhary, with at least f o ty
metres or Malines lace; large parasol
o. same pink, without lace; rico-straw
bonnet, in front diadem shape, with
large white ostrich feathers. Then I
saw a-nice lady-like dress, with skirt
of dark green faille, plissees coquilles
or scolloped plaits in fronts, and flat
plaits on the train, the polonaise iu
Indian crepe vert absinthe or light
sea-green made very ample with drap
ed folds, drawn up at the sides alrou
the height') of the knees, and border (-A
all round an inch and a half deep with
pink fail'e. This polanaise divides al
the back a little below the waist, and
falls iu two points, bordered with pink.
In front it closes en bias, or sidewiys
and is ornamented with three strips of
pink faille, bordered with Malines
lace; the sleeves are straight and close
fitting, with cuffs of three stripes of
pink faille and lace; the bonnet, rice
straw, pink ribon and flowers; knot of
pink ribon on the sholders, and light
sea-green parasol. All kinds of collars
are worn, to the galets Louis XVI.
The lace jabot is fashionable, the
Louis XIII dresses adopt the Vandycl:
Laz irin collar in linnen, and bati?te,
with Venetian lace or Irish lace; the
fichu Marie Antoinette, crossing tkt
breast and tied at the waist behind
with points, is also much in vogue
and the fichus Dtrectoire tied slightly
in front are also worn.

From the Deadwood Times.
About three miles above Crook City,
on the White wood Creek, has been dis
covered a very singular cave. It is
situated on the northwest side of the
creek, about 300 feet above the bed of
the stream. It opens into a hill of
limestone formation 50 feet high. The
entrance to the cave is 20 feet wid j by
10 feet high. The first chamber 13
about 75 feet in length, and extends r
little west of north. Then you enter
another chamber about 200 feet la
length, running almost directly north
east. This second chamber is abor t 20
feet wide and 10 feet high. Xext you
enter upon an inclined floor exten.liri
down through a room C feet wide, 40
feet high and 13 feet in length. As yon
leave this singular chamber, yeu turn
into a small opening 2 by 3 feet,
crawling on your hands and knees until
it gradually enlarges to a ceilin.e; 15
feet high. The atmosphere of the cave
is not disagreeable. It is necessary to
take a flambeau, as the cave is utterly
darf. The wall and ceiling are thick
ly festooned with calcarious spar, and
the outward coating of lime, but be-
