THERE IS .NO DEATH.
BCLWKR'S LAST 1'OEII,
Thero Is no death I The stars go down
To rise upon somo fairer shore,
And bright tn Heaven's Jeweled crown
They shine forever more.
There Is no death I Tho dust wo tread
shall chaugo beneath tho summer shore,
To golden grain, or mellow fruit,"
Or rainbow tinted llowcr.
Tho granite rocks disorganize
To feed the clinging moss they boar j
Tho forest trees drink dally llfo
From out the viewless air.
There Is no death I The leaves may fall,
The Mowers may fade and pass away
They only wait through wintry hours
For coming of the May.
There Is no death I An angel form
Walks o er tho earth with silent tread :
Ho bears our best loved things away,
And then we call them dead.
He leaves our hearts all desolate ;
He plucks our fairest, sweetest Mowers i
Transplanted Into bliss, they now
Adorn Immortal bowers.
That blrd-llko voice whoso Joyous notes
Made glad these scenes of sin and strife,
Sings now an everlasting song
Amidst tho trees of life.
And when lie nnds a smile too bright,
Or heart too puro for taint or vice,
lie bears It to tint world of light
To dwell In paradise.
Born Into that undj lng life,
They leave us but to como again j
With Joy ho welcome them tho same,
Except with sin and pain.
And ever near us, though unseen,
The dear Immortal spirits tread,
for all tho boundless unlverso
Is life there aro no dead I
THE AI'.CIIITKirrS COMPACT.
a LK(ii:xi) of thi: coi.oone cATimnnAL.
The Archbishop Cnnrail de Hochsteilcu,
vvishiiiK lo erect a cathedral which should
exceed all others in Germany and France,
both in beauly and deiicn, directed the. most
celebrated draughtsman of Cologne to pre
pare a plan. Tho name of this architect re
mains unknown. Let this, however, he at
tributed to what was the common lot of al
most all architects who covered Europe witli
monuments in the midillo ages ; the renou
was very difl'erent, as will bo seen presently.
It was in 121S that Courad de IIochteden
issued this order, and in WM, 2o0 yearn af
terward, the cathedral was Mill unfinished.
The architect to whom tho archbishop hpd
applied was sauntering one day along the
Rhine, meditating upon hit plan. Absorb
ed in thought, ho reachel the Frank's gate,
whereat this day may be seen several muti
lated .statues. Here he feated bimiclf. He
had a small stick in his hand.witii which he
drew sketches upon the sand, then effaced
them, and then began of. ers. He continu
ed in this manner until the scttiDg sun re
flected its last rays upon the bosom of the
Hhiue. "Ah T'cried the arlist, "how bfauli
lul a cathedral would look, its towers soar
ing toward heaven, and catching the depart
ing sunbeams, while the Hhine and town
would bo involved in darkness ! Ah ! this
would be lovely I" And he contined draw
ing in the sand, perfectly satisfied wilh him
self. Not far from him was also seated an old
man, who appeared to observe bis move
ments wilh great attention. Indeed, when
the artist, thinking he had attained what he
sought, exclaimed aloud, 'Ye, that's it!'
'Yes,' murmured the old man, 'thats it, in
deed ; but it is the Cathedral of Strasburj.'
He was right. The artist thought himself
inspired ; but his production was a mere ef
fort of memory. This plan was therefore
effaced, and be commenced another. Every
time that he was satisfied and had drawn a
plan in accordance with his ideas the old
mau chuckled and muttered : 'Melz,
Amiens,' or some other city famous for its
cathedral. 'On my word, master,' said the
artist, tired ot his jeers, you seem to under
stand well how to blame, the works of oth
ers j I should like to see what you can do '
The old man said nothiiig,but continued his
criticism until, losiug patience, the artist
exclaimed, 'Come, come, try your hand !'
And he held out the stick to him.
The old man looked at him in a peculiar
manner. Then taking tho stick, he traced
a few lines in the sand,but in such a master
ly way, that the other called out immediate
ly. 'Oh, 'tis plain you aro an architect, Do
you belong to Cologne ?'
'No,' rejoined the old man, dryly, and he
returned tho stick to the artist.
'Why do you not proceed ?' demanded the
latter. 'I entreat you to fiuish your de
'No, you would copy it, and reap all the
honor, replied the other.
'LUter, old gentleman,' continued the
architect. 'We are alone.' And in fact,
the shore at this moment was deserted, for
the night was becoming darker and darker.
'I'll give you ten golden crowns if you will
complete the sketch now before me.'
'Ten golden crowns to me?' roared out the
old man. And so saying, hp, pulled from
under his cloak an enormous purse, whicl
be threw into the air, lly the nrise it was
evidently full of gold, The artist started
back some paces j then returning, full of ag
itutlou and gloom, he caught hold of the old
man's arm, and drawing n dapger at th
same time, cried out, 'Finish it, or thou
'Violence against me f Ah I ah I that
will not serve you, either,' said the stranger
with a smile of derision, Then, seizing his
adversary, he hurled him to the ground say
ing, 'Well, well, now you know that neither
gold uor violeuce can affect me j jou may
have the plan which I sketched before you,
and the honor along with it if you choose,'
'How 80 ?' exclaimed the prostrate ar
'He mine, body nnd soul I' answered the
stranger, with a stern volco.
At this tho other uttered a loud cry, and
mndo the sign ot the cross, whereupon the
devil, for he it was, suddenly disappeared,
On recovering his senses, the architect,
who found hltiiclf lying upon the sands.
aroe and hastened home, where tho old wo
man, who waited on him, and who had been
his nurse, asked why ho returned eo late.
Ho did not attend to her, but hurried to his
chamber and immediately retired to bed,
where ho dreamed of apparitions, and.among
others, of the old man, who presented him
self to his Imagination, tracing those admir
able outlines upon the sand.
'Ah I' exclaimed ho, upon waking the fol
lowing day, 'a plan of this cathcdnl that Is
to surpass all others, and has so long en
grossed all my thoughts, does actually ex
Whereupon he fell to work drawing tow
ers, porches and arches.but nothing succeed
ed. Tho old man's plan,the marvelous plan
was the only one that would do.
He thereforo threw down his pencil, and
prbeceded to the Church of the Holy Apos
tles, and tried to pray. JVain effort I The
church is one of tho smallest in Cologne.
What it must have appeared in comparison
with the old man's drawing may well bo
imagined. In the evening ho again found
himself, how he knew not, upon the borders
of the Hhine. The same stillness, tho same
solitude reigned there as upon the preced
ing night. Mechanically he reached the
Frank'sgate. There he perceived tho old
man, apparently drawing upon the wall.
Every stroke was of fire. Although the
burning lines crossed and interlaced each
other in a thousand different ways, yet, in
tho midst of this apparent confusion, forms
of spindrnls, steeple, and gothio fret-work
might bo distinctly traced, which, however,
disappeared after sparkling an instant, al
though at times these brilliant lines seemed
to combine and form a perfect plan. The
artist now hoped lie was about to behold the
wonderoBs calhedral.btit suddenly the whole
became so confused that his bewildered eye
entirely lost sight of the object.
'Well I will you have my plan ?' said the
old man to the artist.
The latter sighed deeply.
'Will you have it ? Speak I' reiterated
the demon, and as ho uttered these words he
drew, tho image ol a portal in luminous
tracery on the, wall, and then as suddenly
'I will do all you ask 1' wildly answered
'To.morrow, then, at midnight,' replied
the other, and they then separated.
Next day the architect arose full of life
and joy. He had forgotten everything, save
that invisible cathedral which ho had so
long sought. He then approached the win
low. The weather was beautiful. The
Illiine, illuminated by the rays of the glori
ous sun, formed a sparkling crescent. The
city of Cologne, stretching along its bank,
seemed to descend in a gentle slope from the
hill to the shore, and from the shore into the
golden wave, which bathed the foot of the
'Let's see,' muttered the artist tn himself
'where shall my cathedral stand ?' and he
looked around for a Mutable place.
bile thus occupied with proud and hap

his senses ; then again the idea of eternal
lamnation arose so vividly and forcibly to
his distracted thoughts, that he trembled
like a leaf. The nuree, being at a loss what
to do,resolved to consult her confessor. Hav

curious narrative, which reaches The Na-

'Some years ago a "native of Casamnggiore
emigrated to America, leaving behind him
his wife and two children. Shortly after his
arrival in the States, where he promptly
found lucrative employment.he sent 100 lire
to the priest of his native place, to bo by
him conveyed to his family. A few months
ater this remittance was followed by a sec
ond of 1000 lire, and subsequent periods
other suras were forwarded in the same man
ner to the total amount of 20,000 lire, or
1000. The priest, however to whom all
this money was transmitted putit in bis own
pocket. One day, having come to the con
clusion that he had derived sufficient profit
from his agency, he sent for the woman and
informed her, with many consolatory reflec
tions, that her husband was dead. About
the same time ho wrolc to theemigrant.stat-
ng that the latter's wife and children had
uccumbed to an epidemic, which had all
but depopulated Casamaggiore, and inclosed
in his letter an official certificate of their
death and burial. It appears that, after a
wliile, the emigrant, believing himself to bo
.1 widower, married again. He prospered in
business, became a wealthy man, nnd, a few
months ago, determined to revisit the place
of his birth. In due time he arrived with
his second wife and family at Casamaggiore,
where he took up his quarters at the princi-
al inn. Strolling nut to look tip some of
his old acquaintances, a little beggar boy
followed him, importuning him for alms.
Something in tho child's appearance arrested
his attention. Heaskedthe boy his name,
and found him to be his own son. Further
nquiry soon elicited the fact that his wife
and two children were living, but in the ut
most povertv and distress. The reverend

offered tn refund the 2.r,000 lire ; but the af
fair had come to the knowledge of the po
