The mountains clasp it warm and sweet. Like a sunny child to their rocky feet. " , Three prarly lakes and a hundred atreams Lie oa its quiet heart of dreams. Its meadows are the greenest ever seen, Its harvest fields have. the brightest sheen; Through its trees the softest sunlight shakes, And the w hitest llllics gem its lakes. I love, oh, better than words can tell. Its every nook and grove and dell; But most I lovethe gorge where the rill Comes down by the old brown cider milL Above the clear springs gurgle out And the upper meadows wind about. Then join, and nnrtei willows flow 'Round knolls where blue beach whip-stock STOW, To rct in a shaded pool that keeps The oak tree clasped in its crystal deeps. Sheer twenty feet the water falls Down from the old dam's broken walls. Spatters the knobby boulders gray. And, la::ghing dies in the shade away, L'nuOr r:at rocks, through trout pools still. With many a tumble dcyn..9 J "RL All tho way down the nut trees grow. And squirrels hide above and below. Acnrns, beechnuts, chestnuts there Drop all the fall through the hazy air; And burrs roll down with curled-np leaves, In the mellow light of harvest eves. Forever there the still old trees Drink a wine of peace that has no lees. By the roadside stands the cider mill. Where a lowland slumber waits the rill; A great brown building, two stories high. On the western hill-face warm and dry; And odorous piles of apples there Fill with incense the golden air; And heaps of po nace, mixed with straw. To their amber sweets the late flies draw. The cartsback up to the upper door. And spill their treasures in on the floor. Down through the toothed wheels they ge To the wide, deep cider press below. And the screws are turned by slow degrees, Down on the straw-laid cider cheese; And with each turn a fuller stream Bursts from beneath the groaning beam. An amber stream the gods might sip. And fear no morrow's parched Up: But wherefore gods? Those idle toys .Were soulless to real New England hoys. What classic goblet ever felt Such thrilling touches through it melt. As throb electric along a straw When the boyish lips the cider draw? The years are heavy with weary sounds, AnJt heir discords life's sweets muic drowns; But yet I hear, ohl sweet, oh! sweet, Tho rl 1 that bathed my bare, brown feet; And yet the eider drip and falls On my inward ear at intervals; And I list at times in a sad, sweet dream. To the babbling of that little slreara; And I sit in a vUiotied autumn still, In the sunny door of tho cider milL A MAX OF N Ell YE. "While Murat was In IailrM,ho was anxious to coiniiuiuici'.e with Jnnot in Porni'nl ; but all the roruls to Lis bon sv;iniicd with guerrilla, and willi the troops composing Castanos' arm". !Mu rat mentioned his embarrassment to Baron Stro ,onoff, tho llussiau am bassador to Spain. Kui:i,it is well known, was at that time not only the ally, but the friend of France. M. de Strogonoff told Ma rat that it was the easiest thin in the world. "The Russian. Admiral Sini avin," said he, "is in the port at Lis bon ; give nie the most intelligent of your Polish lancers; I will dress him up in a Russian uniform, aud entrust him with the dispatches for the admi ral all will go well, even if he should be taken prisoner a dozen times be tween this and Lisbon, for the insur gent army is so anxious to obtain our neutrality that it will be careful not to furnish a pretext for rupture." Murat was delirhtcd with this in genious scheme. II'! asked Kmisinki, the commander of the lancers, to find him a bravo and intelligent youn man. Two d i ys afterward the com mandant brought the Prince a yonn man of his corps, for whom he pledged his life; his name was Leckinski, and he was but 18 years old. Murat was moved lo sec so young a mm court so imminent a d inger, for, if he we ro delected, hi doom was ecaled. Murat could not help remark ing to the Pole tho rik he was about to run. The youth smiled. "Let your imperial highness give me instruc tions," answered he, respectfully, "and I will give a good account ot the nus 6ion I have been honored with. I thank hi3 highness for having chosen nie frpm my comrades, for all of them ii i i .i.:, t wouiu nave coui iuii uusuismivuuii. The Prince arirnel favorably from the voun? man's modest resolution. Thc'Russiau Ambassador gave him his dispatches, he put on a Russian uni form and set out lor l'orlugai. The first two days uasse I over qui etly, but on the afternoon of the third. Leckinski was surrounded by a body of Spaniards, who disarmed him. and dragged him before the commanding officer. Luckily for-the gallant youth it was Uastauos himself. Leckinski was aware that he was lost if he were discovered to be a Frenchman, consequently, he determ ined on the instant not "to let a single word of French escape him, and to speak Russian and German which he did with equal fluency. The cries of rage of his captors announced the faie which awaited him, aud the horrible murder of Gen. Rone, who had perish ed in the most dreadful tortures but a few weeks before as. he was going to join Junot, was sufficient to freeze the very blood. "Who are you?" said Castanos, in French, which language he spoke per fectly well, having been educated iu France.

The young Pole answered in Russian or German, but never let a single syllable of French escape him. Ilo might, however, ea sily hare forgotten himself, surround ed as he was by a crowd eager for his blood, and who waited with savage impatience to have lum declared guil ty, that he was a Frenchman, to fall upon him and to inur.lcr him. But their fury was raised to u height which the General himself could not coutrol, by an accident which seemed to tut off 'the tmhrfpyy isrtir ffom every hope of escape. One of Casta nos' nid-de-cainps, ouc of the fanatical patriots, who were so iimuurousin this war, who from the first had denounced Leckinski as a French spy, burst into the room dragging with him a man wearing tho brown jacket, tall hat, and red plume of a Spanish peasant. . The ofH-.'cr confronted him with' the Pole, end said : .Look at this man and then say if it is true that he is a German or Russian. He is a spy, I swear by my soul." The peasant, meanwhile was eyeing the prisoner closely. Presently his dark eyes lighted up with the tiro of hatred. "Es Frances," (he. is a Frenchman,), exclaimed he, clapping, his hands. And he stated that, having been in Ma drid, a few weeks before, he had beets put iua requisition to carry torage to the French barrack ; .and, said he, "I was near him an hour, and recollect him. When we caught bin., I told my comrade, this is the French officer I delivcred my forage to. . , '. This was correct Castanos proba bly discerned the true state of the case, but ho was a generous foe. "He proposed to let him pursue his jour ney, for Leckinski still insisted lie was a Russian, and he could not be made to understand a word of French. ut the moment he ventured a hint of thatTrrMiJ. a thousand threatening voices werersTirNaSii4 him: aud e saw that clemency wairrrtJ-i22ih'e . "Rut cniil lio "urt 11 'vnn t7rtiJ"lSK a quarrel with Russia, whose neutral Ity we are so anxiously asking for." "No," said the officer, "but let us try this man." Leckinski understood all, for he was acquainted with Spanish. He was re moved and thrown into a room wor thy to have been ono of the dungeons of the inquisitions in its worst days. "When the Spaniards took him pris oner he had eaten nothing 6ince the previous evening, and when his dun geon door was closed upon him he had fasted for eighteen hours, no wonder, then, what with exhaustion, fatigue, anxiety, and the agony of his dread ful situation, that the unhappy pris oner fell almost senseless on his hard couch. Night soon closed in and left him to realize in his gloom, the full horror of his hopeless situation. He was brave, of course ; but to die at 18 so suddenly! But youth and fatigue finally yielded to thcannroach of sleem and he was soon buried in profound slumber. He slept perhaps two hours, when , the door of nis dungeon opened slow ly, and some one entered with cap tious steps, hiding with his hands the light of a lamp ; the visitor bent over the prisoner's couch, the .hand that shaded the lamp touched him on the shoulder, and ' a sweet and silvery voice a woman's voice asked him : "Do you want to eat?" The young Pole, awakened suddeuly by the glare cf the lamp, by the touch and the words of the. female, rose up on his couch, and,' with ins eyes only half-open, said, in German, "Vhat do you want?" "uive me man sometmng to eat at once," said Castanos, when he heard the result of the first experiment, "and let him go. He is not a French man. How could he have been so far master of himself? Tho thing is im possible." But though Leckinski was supplied with food he was detained a prisoner. The next morning he was taken to a spot where he could see the mutilated corpse of the Frenchman, who had been cruelly massacred by the peasant ry of Truxillo, and he was threatened with the same death. But the noble youth had promised not to fail, and not a word, not an accent, not a ges ture or look betrayed him. Leckinski, when taken back to the prison, hailed it with a sort of joy. For twelve hours he had nothing but gibbets and death, in its most horrid lorms, before his eyes, exhibited to him by men with the looks and the passions of demons. He slept, howev er, after the harrassing excitement of the day, aud soundly, too ; when, in the midst of his deep and death-like slumbers, the door opened gently, and some one drew near his couch, and the same voice whispered in his ear : ."Arise aud come-with me. YVe wish to save your life. Your horse is ready." And the brave young man hastily wakened by the words, "we wish to save your life, come, answered still in German, 44 What do yon want?" Castanos, when he heard this exper iment and its result, said that the Russian was a noble young man ; he- saw the true state of the case. The next morning early four men came to take him before a sort of court-martial, composed of Castanos' staff. - During the walk they uttered most horrible threats against him, but true to his determination, he pre tend ed not to understand them. When he came before his judges, ho 6eemed to gather what was going ou from the arrangement of the tribunal, and not from what he heard said around him, and he asked in Geiroan where his interpreter was. He was sent for, and the examination com menced. It turned first upon the motive of J,is journey from Madrid to Lisbon. He answered by showing his dispatch-, es of Admiral S'niavan and his pass port. Spile of the presence and vehe ment assert iou of the peasant, he in sisted in the same siory. and he did not contradict himself once. "Ask him," said the presiding offi cer, at last, "if he loves the Spaniards, asjie is not a Frenchman." , The interpreter nut the question. "Cer ainly," said Leckinski, "I like the Spaniard nition; I esteem it Jor its noble character; I wish our two nations were friends." "Colonel." said the interpreter to he President, "the prisoner savs he tales us because we make war like hnnditti, that bo despises us. and that us only regret is that he cannot unite .e whole nation as one mm to cud this odious war at a single blow." While he was saying this the eves or the whole tribunal were attentive ly watching the slightest movement ot the prisoner's countenance, in order see what effect the interpreter's t reachery would have upon him. But leckinski had expected to be put to the test in some way, and be was de termmed to baffle all their attempts, "Gentlemen,' said Castano "it , .... iu young man can- be ue e po-uuou, he will find the severity wcjiavebeeu obliged, to use excusa- Lrjclcinsti'g tfrmg atria ejsrMc-ht! ! ui uv ausiKJcieu; tne iicasant must ; deceived.

It is evident that the Clerk of the Weather has lout his reckoning, and it is further evident, from tho chaotic state of the elements, that he is mak ing a desperate struggle to recover a ruined reputation.

But en x amining these reports, we find no rec ord of such scarcity of rain duriug the last nine years. . . - . THIS UNUSUAL DRTXESS is to many tho harbinger of a dry sea son, and to most, especially farmers, a cause of alarm. The small grains. which should now be well on their way, have, except winter wheat, scarce ly time to dovelop into profitable bar- vests, unless soon favored with vernal rains. The simple fact, however, that winter wheat has generally a good ap pearance, is the beat evidence that the soil is not greatly deficient in moist ure; and this, with the fact that win ter wheat yields more than twice tho average f spring wheat per acre, should convince.
