Col. Robert G. Ingersoll is well known
as an orator whose speeches abound in
passages of poetic splendor; but it is not
generally known that he has sometimes
contributed always anonymously to
the poetical literature of America. On
the 17th of August he visited the home
of Robert Burns, and there wrote the
following poem, which his friend, Mr.
Redpath, has just received:
1 hough Scotland boasts a thousand
Of patriot, king, and peer,
The noblest, grandest of them all
v as loved and cradled here:
Here lived the gentle peasant-prince,
The loving cotter-king,
Comjiared with whom the greatest lord
Is but a titled thing.
'Tis but a cot roofed in with straw,
A hovel inadeofclar.
One door to shut out the snow and storm,
One window greets the day;
And yet I stand within this "room,
And hold all thrones in tcorn.
For here, beneath this lowly thatch,
Love's sweetest bard was" born.
Within this hallowed hut I feel
Like one who clasps a shrine,
When the glad lips at lat have touched
The something deemed dinuc;
And here t lie world through all the years,
As long as the da returns,
The tribute of its love and tears
Will pax to Robert Burn-'.

In 1 lie elegantly furnished drawing-room
of u "Wcsl-oiul umtm-ioii
sat a young man, whose genteel
bearing, broad, noble brow, from
wliiob his chestnut hair was tossed
back in graceful carelessness, and
large, thoughtful eyes bespoke him
to be one of nature's noblemen. lie
was evidently waiting impatiently
for some one; for, as a slight noise
was heard on the lauding, he would

Fred, nervously.
"Oh, nevnr fear for me I" said Guy,
"for I have already caged my bird,
and so shall not prove a dangerous
rival to your suit."
"Well, then, behold!" replied
iweu, removing his hand, and dis
closing to view the tiny locket.
Guy turned pale as death; but,
mastering his emotion by a violent
effort, he playfully insisted upon
knowing the name of Fred's char
mer. "Oh, come," said Fred, "you are
feigning innocence; for surely you
must have often seen this trinket
upon the arm of fair 'Xcll the Irre-
bistible,' who has this dav bestowed
it upon me as a pledge of her true

stone while this flippant speech wag
being rattled out, and then, with a
faw common-place words, passed
on; but his tread was not as free
and elastic as before be met Fred.
and his head, which then had been
raised proudly, was now bent for
ward dejectedly; for a dark cloud
bad suddenly arisen, which threat
ened to overshadow forever the
bright morning of his hanniness.
Fred watched him pass on with a
sardonic smile on his handsome yet
sinister face, and thought to himself
Fred Acton's death, and also said
that iliss Pomcroy was as beautiful
as ever, but unmarried. At this
Guy's heart throbbed wildly, and
his brain almost reeled with the
idea that perhaps his own rashness
had dashed the cup of happiness
from his lips. Could there hayc

duct, and had he wronged Xellicall

Inckct, one side of which bore a

Guy Hartley, for such was our
hero's name, hud called, glad of an
excuse, to acquaint Xellie with some
arrangement which he had just
completed with regard to their soon
approaching marriage; and, alter a
short time passed in pleasant con
versation, he reluctantly rose, and.
bidding a (under adieu 'to the fair
girl, led the liouec with a firm,
clastic tread.
Hardly had he taken his departure
when the front door-bell again rang,
and once more a young gcntlema'ii
was ushered into the drawing-room.
The new-comer was tail and slight,
with jet black hair, and a piercing
look in the black eyes that boded no
goou to an enemy. As he sank into
a chair, something glistening upon
the floor caught his eye; and as lie
recognized it he could scarce refrain
from a shout of pleasure, for Fred
Acton had lonir been thn secrnt
rival of Guy, each striving to win
the hand of fair Nellie Pomcroy.
And now, as he held in his grasp the
tiny locket, which, by some evil
chance, had become detached from
the bracelet on Nellie's arm, he felt
that he possessed an almost certain
means ot revenge on Guy, and stood,
perhaps, a belter chance of winning
the fair girl for his wife: for tho
w J ...
iockci, as lie knew, had been Guy's
first love-gift to Nellie, and was
prized as one of her choicest pos
sessions. At this moment, the footman en
tered the parlor, presenting Miss
Pomcroy's regrets, and a request
that Mr. Acton would excuse her
that afternoon. The truth was that
with her womanly intuition she had
long ago divined the secret which
be had thought known to himself
aionc; and, having ever treated him
with polite indifference, she felt less
inclined now than ever to endure a
tcie-a-tete with him.
Jlisiug as the footman entered
with her message, and scarcely able
to conceal the pleasure it afforded
him at this moment, when he was
still trembling with the fear of hav
ing been seen as ho hastily hid the
shining bauble in his bosom, he left
his compliments and departed.
Goiug directly to a jeweler's, he
purchased a small ring, with which
he fastened the locket securely to
his watch-chain, and then sauntered
dowu the street, in the hope of
meeting Guy. His wish was des
tined to be fulfilled; for he was
shortly gratified by seeing Guy ap
proaching, with a 6ereue. contented
look on his handsome face.
As they stopped to chat, Fred, as
if anxious to conceal something,
placed his hand carelessly on his
watch-chain; but Guv, as was in
tended, noticed the action, and said,
laughingly: "What is it that you
are so jealously guarding, Fred ? A
love-token from some fair lady?"
"Yes ; but, for fear that it inig
you may hud lo vour cost
you will know the
standing in the way of Fred Acton !"
That evening, in her luxurious
home, Nellie watched and listened
in vain tor the familiar footsteps she
had learned to know so well: and
she retired to rest at last, sad and
dispirited, and with a dim sense of
impending trouble, that was yet too
vague to shape itselfitito connected
The next morning, as I he family
were gathered around the breakfast
table, a servant cnleicd the room
with a note addressed to "Mfss
I'omeroy." Grasping it eagerly,
spasmodically, Nellie tore it open,
and with blanched face read the
following laconic note:
Xi:llik: All is over between us.
Thank Cod, I have di-covereil vour
pertKiy nctorc it was too late. I had the
fullest confidence in you, Xellie; but
1111 i. iaa now.
I leave for r'r.mcc to-morrow, never I
trust to ro:.H this country, which
would now be but a sad home to me.
Your oiuc-deoted lover,
Mr. and Mrs. Pomcroy, occupied
in their own conversation, had not
noticed the sudden paling or their
daughter's face, as she hurriedly
scanned the familiar writing, till, as
she reached the fatal termination,
her exes closed, and, with a low
moan of agony, she sank to the lloor
in a death-like swoon.
For five years Guy wandered
through .L.irone: for live years ho
vainly strove to find forgetfulness
and happiness in constant excite
ment and change of scene; but, fail
ing in this, he had at last resolved
to visit again the land of his birth,
if only to mark the lavages which
time had made among his old friends
So he returned to London.
Not once had a suspicion of Fred
Anton's treachery crossed his mind,
for to Guy he had always shown he
better part of his nature; besides,
the proof of Nellie's duplicity had
seemed too conclusive to admit nc
any lingering doubt his love might
have suggested.
And AeHic? Thrown into a ner
vous fever by the cruel nolo from
Guy, she wavered long between life
and death; but, finally, her perfect
constitution gained the victory, nnd
she again mingled in the gav world
of lashion ; but a certain "sadness
was perceptible in her manner, and
a weary look in her blue eves show
ed that he. heart was not interested
in the gay scenes by which she was
Vainly had Fred Acton sued for
her hand. Feeling that he was In
nildly he asked himself these
questions while on the way to his
hotel; and by the lime he had arriv
ed there he iiad resolved that he
would at least see Nellie and have
an explanation with her. Once
more he turned his steps toward the
well-known house where he had
spent the happiest hours of his life;
once more he was ushered into the
familiar room, where even the pic
tures on the walls seemed to smile
on him in friendly recognition.
15roti7cd by travel, the old family
servant failed to remember him, so
he gave no name, merely requesting
lo see Aliss 1 omcroy.
Nellie soon appeared; but hardly
had she crossed the threshold when
the eyes of love recognized him, and
with a wild scream of ''Guy, dear
Guy!'' .she was folded to his heart.
Long explanations followed. Nel
lie told of the loss of her locket on
the day of Guy's hist visit, and how
she had regretted it. being his gift.
She also told of the dyingeoufo-sion
of Fred Acton, and his restoration
of her locket, which she showed
him, worn on a blue ribbon about
her neck.
Guy, penitent but loving, wis
fully forgiven by his deeply wrong
ed Nellie, who in the joy of such a
1 m .. .. ..
reunion, uaa no Heart lo blame him.
Soon after there was u grand wed
ding in (ho stately mansion ; and,
although the fair bride's ornaments
were milk-white neai-Io. there htiii-

The question whether it is possi
ble that there can be at all times or
at any time nnytniug in the form 0
un open polar sea seems to be vir
tually settled, and in the most un
satisfactory manner imaginable.
From the observation? of Gmmt
Hijczek, in 1S71, and Weyprechl
and Puyer, in the following year,
and from those of Dr. Haves, in
1SG1, and Capt. Nitres, in lSfy-0", it
is evident that the polar basin is
neither open sea nor continuous ice,
but a fatal compromise between the
two ; nml there beeuis now to be
only two plans one nearly ns bone
less as the other 10 chooe between
in any future attempt to reach the
North pole either to establish per

Lieut. Weyprechl, and already ini

From information derived from all

much more probably partly of a.

She accordingly builds up within
her a fortress of resolution, in which

much time in cultivating her mu

in her conviction that men arc the

There is a great evil somewhere,
but what is it? The husband ac
knowledges to himself that he is
disappointed in the wife he has
chosen, and yet he finds difficulty in
pointing out his mistake, and hard I v
finds cause to bhune her, for is she
not a faithful wife, a devoted moth
er nnd a most frugal manager? The
mistake is a national characteristic.

What is lacking is the power to

According to the crude opinions
prevailing during the infancy of
modern science, matter nnd motion
were all required for calling n world
into oxistence; but it was soon
found that unless in the beginning,
the materials which formed Ihu so
lar moved with a certain order and
regularity, thoy could never have
arisen from the chaotic to the cos
inical condition. As all the planets
move round the sun in the s.iin
direction, Laplace was led lo be
lieve that in remote times all must
hitvo been counected together; and
such primitive connection might be
a Horded if tho sun uud his attend
ants were originally a vast lire-mist,
their matter being so much attenu
ated by heat that it extended far
beyond its boundaries- of the solar
domain. He supposed that such an
immense rarefied muss, on boing
set in motion by some causo which
he does not specify, would ultimate
ly be compelled by its own friction
and by gravity, to rotate with a
uniform angular velocity in all its
parts and around a common center.
In accordance with the principles
of physical astronomy he concluded
that this rotation wouU) become as
rapid as the immense solar nebula
cooled and contracted, until at list
the contriftual force became irreat
enough to overcome gravity and to
throw oil' matter from the equator
ol the whirling mass. Laplace con
sidered thai, under tho most proba
ble circumstances, the nebulous
matter thus thrown otV or abandon
ed by the shrinking epheroid,wouId
nil collect together to form a planet;
but that, in some unusual cases, it
would assume the expanded fi'tiro
of a vast solar ring; and that under
certain conditions, it might break
up into a number of asteroids. Tho
singular group of bodies revolving
between Mars nnd Jupiter, is sup
posed to have come into existence;
in consequence of some rare acci
dent, which made the great solar
ring a prey to many centers of
aggregation, instead of allowing it
to coalesce around a 6inglo one. In
all oilier cases the cooling and con
traction are said to have been suc
cessful in giving birth to a great
planet wherever the centrifugal
ioiuu oecame suilicicnt to scnninln
the equatorial portions of the ro
tating solar nebula. According to
the views of Laplace, Neptune miiat
be regarded ns the first-born world
of those already known; while
Uranus is next in age, aud the other
planets were launched into being in
a succession depending on their
distances from the tun; so that
Mercury is the youngest member of
the solar family. Professor Dunicl

Fred Acton, after repeated refus

all hopes of winning her hand ; but,
loving her still, as much as his sel
fish nature was capable of loving, he
attempted to drown his sorrow in
tho wine cup; and, with drinking
and fast horses, was rapidly eating
up the handsome property left him
by his father. One day, while rid

frightened at a fluttering rag, shied,

Knowing, then, that for him all
thoughts of revenge ou Guy were
useless, and that he must soon ren

his thoughts turned to Nellie, with
a feeble wish that he could undo the
wrong he had done her. So he
dictated a letter, confessing his sin,

to the injured girl, who, true woman

As soon as physiologists had dis
covered that all the faculties of the
intellect, however originating or
upon whatever exercised, wero
functions of a material organism of
brain, absolutely dependent upon
integrity for their manifestation,
aud upon its growth and develop
ment for their improvement, it
became apparent that the true office
of the teacher of the future would
be to seek to learn the conditions
by which the growth and the on.
orations of tho brain were controll
ed, in order that he might be nblo
to modify these conditions in a
favorable manner. The abstraction
of the "mind" was- so far set asido
as to make it certain that this mind
could only act through a nervous
structnre, and that the structure
was subject to various influences
for good or evil. It became known
that a brain cannot arrive at hcalthv
mntunty excepting by the assist
ance of a sufficient supply of healthy
blood that i3 to sav, of good food
and pureuir. It also became known
that the pocr of a brain will ulti
mately depend vflry much upon tha
way in which it 13 habitually exer
cised, and that the practice of
schools in this respect left a great
deal to be desired. A large aufount
of cosily and pretentious teaching
fails dismally for no other reason
than because it is not directed to
any knowledge of the mode of ac
tion of the organ to which the
teacher endeavors to appeal; and
meutal growth in many instances
occurs in spite of teaching rather
on account of it. Education, which
might once have been defined as an
endeavor favorably to influence a
vital process; and, when so regard
ed, its direction should manifestly
fall somewhat into the hands of
those by whom the nature of vital
processes has been most completely
studied. In other word', it be
comes neither more nor less than a
branch of applied physiology; and
physiologists tell us with regard to
it that the common processes of
teaching are open to the great objec
tion that they constantly appeal to
