He stood beforo tho Sanhedrim i
'I he (cow ing lal.bls gnred lit him.
He licked not of their pralw or blamoj
Thcro vvns no fear, there w as no tlinlnc,
l'or one upon whoso dazzled ejes
Tho whole world poured Its vast surprise.
Tho open heaven was far loo near,
Ills llrst il.i -s light loo swis't nnd clear,
To let I1I111 waste lit- liew'.gitlned ken
On (he halc-cluuded faces ot men.
Hut still they questioned, Who nit thou?
What hast thou been? What all thou now?
'1 boil nrl. not he vv ho e'trrday
Sat here and begged bes Ido the ways
And 1 am he,
l'or I was blind and now 1 see.
He told the story o'tr and o'er j
It was Ids full licai fs omy lore!
A prophet'on tho Sabbath diy
Had touched Ids sightless oos with cloy,
And made him see who had lieen blind.
'I heir w ords passed by him llko tho w Hid
v lilch raves and howls, but cannot shock
Tho liundred-fathom-rooted rock.
Their threats nnd fury all went vvldoj
They could not touch Ids Hebrew pride,
Their sneers at Jesus and Ills band,
Nameless and hopeless In tho land,
Their boasts of Moses and Ids Lord,
All could not change him by ono word.
1 know not what this man may be,
sinner or saint i but as for me,
One thing 1 know, that I am lie
Who once was blind, and now I see.
They vv ere all doctors of renown,
Tho great men of a famous town,
With deep brows, wrinkled, broad nnd wise,
I'.cnoalh their w Ido phylacteries i
Tho w Isdoni of tho Hast was theirs,
And honor crowned their sllv er hairs.
'I ho man they Jeered nnd laughed to scorn
Was unloarned, poor, nnd humbly born i
Hut ho knew better lar than they
What e.iinotu him that Sabbalh day.
And what the Christ had done for Idol
llo knew, nnd not tho sanlicdilin.
After dark vapors have oppiessed our plains
l'or a long, dicary season, comes n day
Horn of tho gentlo south, and clears away
I'iMiii the sick heavens all unseemly status.
Thounxlous month, lelieved from Its pains,
Takes, 11s a long lost right, the feel of May;
Tho eyelids with the passing coolness play
Like roso leaves with tho drip of summer rains.
And calmest thoughts conio round us-as ot leaven
Hiiddlng, fruit ripening In stillness, uututnu suns
binUlng nt eve upon the quiet sheaves
Sweet Sappho's cheek a sleeping Infant's breath
The gradual fand thro' an hour glass runs
A woodland rivulet a poet's death.
DAVID MOSS, ATTORNEY.
I hud nfler it severe struggle with poverty
caught at tlio skirts of tho legal profession.
V sign with gilt letters, 'David Moss, Attor
ney and Solicitor at Law,' was tucked on my
ollico door 011 Loui-iana avenue. Within
few ditsty books, an empty desk and 11 di
lapidated anil chair, proclaimed my legal
status. I had waited patiently for criminal
and perplexed debtors lu rush in and seek
my advice, but tncy did not rush well; hope
deferred had almost made my heart sick.
On the morning of December lilst, 187:5, I
sat dUcnnsolatcly in my ollice,with my over
coat buttoned up lo my chin, said overcoat

arrived at this point in my reflections, tho
door of my ollico swung softly on its hinges,
ami a man clo-ely mulllcd in winter apparel
stood by my side.
'Arc you n lawyer, sir?' ho said, with a

'That is my business,' I returned, coolcy

sinewy with black hair, sparsely mixed with

him 11 man of wealth. I noticed this ns ho
slowly seated himself:
'Suppose,' said he, 'you had an only

on marrying u niiiu that yon dispiscd,u man
whom you knew lo bo 11 villain, but had no
means of proving it.'
'Is your daughter of ago ?' I naked.
'1 did not say sho was my daughter,young

I felt that I had suddenly changed places
with him tlint ho win tho attorney and I
was tho client, but taking 110 notice of his
words, I repeated tho ipiesliou with a varia
tion. 'Is sho of ago?'
'Yes,' was tho reply, 'oho is of ago and as
obstinate as a mule.'

'I have tried everything ; I havo told her she

were curled in style, my blonde moustache
was waxed to perfection, my bltio eyes
sparkled, and my mannerly form was im
mersed iu an elegant suit of broadcloth. lie
sides all this, I had cultivated a becoming
pallor, for I was to enact the rolo of invalid.
A carriage was waiting, I was assi sled into
it by the obsequious footmen, and sank
languidly 011 tho cushions. I was driven to
an elegant mansion, met by tho host and al
most carried lo a luxurious chamber. I was
too fatigued to go down stairs that evening.

to swallow, and tlio w ino it took to wash it
down, would have aitonishcd a restaurateur.
In tho morning my head was so bad that
I took my colleo iu bed. At dinner timol
managed with my assista nee, to get to the
dining-room, and for tho first time met Kate
Marston, tho young lady whose dearest
hopes I had come to overthrow. After tho
first glauco I began to think that perhaps-
old Mr. Matston had mado a grave mistake
in bringing mo there. I never had an ideal;
my busy life in collcgo and my money to
live at all afterwards had allowed 110 margin
for dreams. I!tit 1 am sure Kalo Marston
embodied nil the elements which have com
posed my ideal if I had poscsscd one.
She was small, a perfect brunette with
blue eyes, which might sparkle with love or
hate, red lips and checks, lustrous black
hair, white, shapely teeth, and, in fact,
everything which is charming in woman.
She treated 1110 very kindly, very gently, be

to his house but Kate had sent them about
their business in anything but a conipli
nientary style. All the ladies who had been
hired as companions she won over lo her
disobedience, and vveto di-chargid in dis
grace. It was plauiie 1 that while drawing
on her sympathy, uud seeking kindly ollices
from her, 1 should watch over ncr, keep with
her as much as I could, and excito if po-si
hie, the jealousy of her lover, and tempt
him to sumo desperate action.
I felt im mediately that it would bo

pealed, a voting man of lauded estate, I
would havo entered into it with greater zeal
Por a few days everything progressed
smoothly, Kato was assiduous in her at
tcntions to my comfort. I would lie on the
sofa and slio would read to 1110 iu her dulcet
tones. I enjoyed this heartily, for she was
really a good reader, and Tennyson or lly

When my head ached, and I often had
severe spells witli my head, how tenderly
she bathed it with those deft fingers of hers.
I would have been content to live and bask
in the sunshine of her presenco forever, but
observation showed 1110 that titero was a
necessity for action. Sometimes ICate would
shut herself up iu her room for an hour or
two. Meanwhile, I, on whom timo always
hung heavily when sho was absent, placed
my chair by tho window to view passers by.
Invariably I saw a man pacing up and down,
iu front of the house, llo was of medium
sie, light complexion, blue grey eyes, long
side whiskers, a mixture between flaxen and
brown. Most people would havo called him
rather good looking, but a close observer of
character would havo noted the strangely
bhaped forehead and tho gradual sinking in
of tho features at tho bridge of tho nose. I
wuii not long in finding out this was Kate's
lover, and I took a strango delight in watch
ing him. I caught him looking at 1110 with
a malignant scowl. With Kale's re-appear-anco
ho always disappeared. 1 was certain
that they were keeping up a correspondence,
but I never nwv her receive any letters. 1
began to oncoct plans to prevent this. I
begged her as a great favor to help mo in
writing some letters which was a necessity
for 1110 to write, but which, on account of my
weakness, I was unable to do. I kept her
for long hours writing letters about all sorts
of things, to imaginary people, which, of
cotiise, were novcr mailed, I havobomoof
them yet carefully put away in my writing
desk. Then wo took long rides, and bhc,
believing 1110 to bo a stranger iu the city,
pointed oul objects of interest,and answered
the numerous questions which I clioso to
ask. I think at thoso times sho must havo

Willi all tho firmness and, as her father
termed it, obstinacy .hero was always in her
that gentleness and sweetness which
characterizes the truo lady. I only sighed
that blie had not bestowed her love 011 some
worthy object myself, for instance. Luckily
I met 110 one that knew 1110 us David Moss,
attorney and solicitor; but wo nearly always
passed somewhere In our rides her lover,
whom her father told mu was Walter llev
euux. At btieh limes Kate would bow and smile,
while ho returned a haughty nod, which
biought frighteuedggrioved looks into Kate's
fair face. Then an insane desire would
seize. 1110 to jump out of tho can logo nud

by both mnstcr and mistress. Tho chango
iu my 11 to seemed almost as wonderful ns
the miracles wrought by Alhidln's lump. I
came slowly down stairs on this morning, a
little earlier than ii-tial, and entered the
dining-room. I had expected to find no ono
there, nud was surprised to bco Kato kneel
ing beforo her pet canary, wcciilujr bitterly,
and between her sobs saying, "good-bye,
sweet-heart," for so sho called tliu bird. 1
entered unobserved, no 1 slipped out again
and closed the door softly after me, de
termined tu closely watch affairs.
I camo down Into tu breakfast, and found
her father already seated. There were no
traces of agitation about Kate; there deemed
to be an added sweetness and gentleness in
her manner to her father. 1 complained of
having passed a bad night and of feeling
badly. I kept my room most of the dav,
but within its precincts I raced furiously.
To let her escape with that scoundrcl,sccmcd
to mo would be to let tho lat of my life de
part. Xo, I was determined to prevent it
even at tho cost of my life.

constitution triumphed. After returning
to consciousness tho second time I mended

Kale's sweet face bending over mo with such
:v woild of tenderness in it. I convalesced
rapidly, and Kate and I soon resumed our
rides. One morning Mr. Marston summoned
me into his library and told me that I must
appear as a witness against llcvcaux. This
I did not wish to do, lor fear that it might
complicate Kate ; but Mr. Marston insisted,
and the trial le-ulted in Mr. llcvcaux being
sent to the penitentiary for three years.
Kate manifested no feeling ; her lover
seemed to have yielded lo the circum

American literature contains nothing clever
er in Us way, and its cleverness is manifold
enlian.ed when it is understood that it is
simply and unequivocally Action, ns tlio ac
tual circumstances under which tho poem
was written conclusively show.
Poe then occupied a cottage at Eordham
a kind of poet's noil: just ogt of hearing
of tho busy hum of tho city. lie had walk
ed nil tho way from X'cvv York that after
noon, and, having taken a cup of tea, went
out in tho evening and walked about for nn
hour or more. His beloved Virginia was
sick almost to death ; ho was w ithotit money
to procure tho necessary medicines. He
was out until about ten o'clock. When ho
went in hf. sat down nt his writing table mid
dashed oil' "Tho Haven." Ifo submitted it
to Mrs. dentin for her consideration on the
same night, and it was printed substantially
as it was wiittcn. '
This account of the origin of (lie poem
was communicated to mo in the fall of lSilo,
by a gentleman who professed f.i bo indebted
to Mm Clcmm fir tho facts as ho stated
thorn ; and in the courso of a saunter in tho
South in tho summer of 1SG7, 1 took occa
sion to verify Ids story by nn interview with
that aged lady. Let mo now drop Mrs.
denim's version to consider another, resting
upon tho testimony of Colonel Du Sidle, who
was intimate with Poo nt litis period, and
concurred in by other literary contempoia
rics who Used lo meet him ol a midday for a
budget of gossip and a glass of alo at Sandy
Welch's cellar in Ann stieet.
I)u Solfe says that the poem was produced
stanza by stanza nl small intervals and sub
mitted by Poo piecemeal to tho criticism nnd
emendation of his intimates, who suggested
various alterations and substitutions. Poe
adopted many ol them. Du &0II0 quotes
particular instances of phrases that were in
corporated at his suggestion, and thus "The
Haven" was a kind of joint-stock affair in
which many minds held small shares of in
tellectual capital. At length, when the last
stone had been placed in position and passed
upon, the structure was voted complete.
Tho reconciliation of these cotitlietiiig ver
sions lies, possibly, in tho hypothesis that ho
wrote tlio poem, substantially, as staled 1
Mrs, Clcmm, nnd afterward, with llio shrewd
idea 01 stimulating expectation a utile, or
by way of subtle and delicate flattery, sub

Such alterations would scarcely .lli'ect
