And it ton

Kindled up a spirit fueling,

Through a door retiring ilowly,
To my tmila enraptured viaion,
Those eternal field Elyaian,
Where tha bleat in full fruition 1

Something smaller, something lighter,'
And with raiment purer, whiter,
Came in view

Gating back from whene she started
'Twas my lent, my loving-hearted,
Well I knew.
For a moment then she lingers,
And the beautiful white fingers
Of Lenore 1 .
Swept across the hryp so shining
Which the angel loft reclining
'Qainit the door.
Then a if some word receiving,
Half in doubt, yet half believing,
And at ouce ah aw and knew me,
And at one ihe came unto me
With a bound.
Oh I th rapturo of that meeting,
Of that btt-tited spirit grueling,

Till tuoy pai the deep dark river.
Which divides thi world forever,
From our own.

From eternal fountain (lowing,

the p.n f water, her only mirror, she
smiled gaily at the visian before her.
It whs btautiful. All the dresses and
jewels wpre tried. Ai the bottom of
one trunk she found a robe of snowy
muslin. With a cry of delight, Noi
setie threw aside the rich, rare-colored
silk, and quickly arrayed herself in
the simpllt, flowing white robes, and
looking ijto the jewel-case, she found
a w ream: oi ariicate wild-nowers. -All

As Noisette spoke, the village clock

noisette enterea the hut and closing
the door, began her incantations.
Placing her little rude tablet in the
centre of Ihe room, she spread a white
napkin over it ; upon this sho placed
llirte larpe vine-leaves, and above all
we r laid the taliamnnic crapes. She
then made the signs of the cioss set

with arms crossed upon her breast,

Midnight sounded. Unfortunately
at the eleventh stroke the moon hid
behind a dense cloud, and the interior
of the lUtle hut was plunged in gloom.
Noiaetie trembled with fear. She
heard steps to the right, to the left
behind and all round her.
"Good heavens !' exclaimed Noi
sette, naively, 4 how many feet hi

bhe had hardly spoken when the
moon shone forth again. Horror 1

horror, Noisette fainted. Ihe cry of
the young girl was heard, and the ofh
eer and men rushed into the but, and
found her faint, laying like a broken

ought to bring her to consciousness.
there was beard martial music, and up
the hill rode a glittering cavalcade
with a beautiful young man at their
head. Arriving at ice hut the young
man dismounted and placing a little
golden vil of exquisite perfume to the
lips of the insensible .Noisette, he
chanted in sweet tones :

"My wife I" exclaimed the young
man, and he extended Lis arms to

JOHN ADAMS GEORGE III.
John Adams, in a letter to Secret'y
Jsy, states Ihxt king G. III. behaved
not only handsomely, but even nobly,
when, in June, 1785, he received
Adams, as th first ambassador from
the United States to England. In a
few well-selected words Adams ad
dressed Georgey, and received the fol
lowing reply : "Sir, I wish you to
believe, and that it may be understood
in America) that I have done nothing
in tne laie contest but what! thouzht
myself indispensblay bound to do by
the duty which I owed to my people.
I will be vary frank with vou. I was
the last to consent to the separation ;
but the separation having been made,
and having become inevitable, I have
always said, at I now say. that I
would be the first to to meet the friend
ship of the United States as an inde
pendent power." These are words
of proper dignity as well as of decor
ous wisdom. Air. Adams, who re
cords them, impressivelv adds, The
king was indeed much affected, and I
confess I was not lets so."
A Curiods Leqnd. There is a tra
dition in connection with the lite on
which the Temple of Solomon was
erected. It is said to have been
occupied in common by two brothers
one of whom had a family, the other
had none. . On this spot was sown a
field of wheat. On the evening suc
ceeding the harvest, the wheat having
been gathered in separate shocks "the
elder brother said unto his wife, 'My
younger brother is unable to bear the
bnrden and heat of the day ; I will
ariie, tuke of my shocks and place
with his, -without his knowledge. "
The younger brother, being actuated
by the same benevolont motives, said
within himself, ''My elder brother has
a family, and I have none, I will con
tribute to their support I will ariae,
take of my shocks and place with his
without his knowledge." Judge of
their mutual astonishment, when, on
Ihe following morning, they found
their respedive shocks andiminished.
This eouise of event transpired for
several nights, when each resolved in
his own mind to stand guard anil solve
ihe mystery. They did so ; wbeo.oa
the following night, they met each
other half wy between their respec
tive shocks, with their arms full.
An Example Tor Duelists.
Alphonse Karr, among the wittiest
of Parisian gossips, tells a capital tale
of a man who would neither decline a
duel nor fight.
Messieurs A. and B., having quar
relled about some one of these mere
nothings about which, in Paris as else
where, gentlemen so often risk their
lives, B. challenged A., but most de
voutly trusted that A. would not fight
Nothing of the kind, A. was quite
willing and all the necessary arrange
ments ware made.
Well, B. eaid his second, "we
have had some trouble to arrange
about distance : but at length it is set
tie for twenty paces, both fire tocetit
er, and the meeting is for to-morrow
morning, at nine o cjock.
"Yes, in the wood of Vincennes."
"Humph," said B., and we are to
fight at twenty paces 7"
"I should just as soon have it at
fifteen or even ten."
"Well, I wanted to put you np at
fifteen. , but A 's. second would not
agree to it, so I yielded the point."
"Ah, you yielded that point. I am
fully determined, however, that they
shall not have another point yielded.
"Well, no, that ean hardly be even
asked for, seeing that everytning is
arranged, and it only remains jiow to
wait for the morning." ' . "
Oh, but there may be a point in
dispute yet, snd I will certainly main
tain my rights." '
No one attacks them."
"I am the Offended party."
"And therefore have the choice of
weapons ? Well I I choose small
"Small swords I Why, did you
not just now consent to fight at twen
ty paces ?"
"Yes, I am not the man to retire
from an agreement which a friend has
made in my name. I repeat that fif
teen or even ten paces would have
suited me just as well. But you have
said twenty, and let it be twenty."
' Very good. And now about the
pistols ; have you any 1"
