TEE RIVER PATE(
DV J. 0. WIIITTIER
No bird song floated down the bill,
The tangled bunk below was still,
No rustic from the birchen stem,
No ripple from the water's hem.
The dir k of twilight round us grow,
We felt the fulling of the dew ;
For from up,- pro !ho day Wfl'i done,
The wooded hills shut out the sun.
But on the river's fartherest side
We saw the hilltop glorified— ,
A tender glow, exceeding fair,
A dream of day without its glare. ,
With us the danip, the chill, the gloom,
With them the sunset's rosy bloom ;
While (lark through willowy vistas seen,
The river rolled iu shade between.
Prom out the darkness where we trod,
We gazed upon the hills of God,
Whoso light seemed not of moon or sun ;
We spoke, not, but our thought erns one.
Paused,'as'if from that bright shore
Beckoned our dear ones gone before ;
And stayed our beating hearts to hear
The voices lost•tu mortal ear !
Sudden our pathway turned from night,
The hills swung open to the light ;
Thro' their green gates the s'unshineshoWed,
A long, slant splendor downword flowed.
Down glade and glen and bank it rolled,
It bridged the shaded Stream with gold ;
And borne . on piers of mist, allied !
The shadowy with the sunlit slide !
"Si)," 'said we, "when our feet draw near
The river dark, with mortal fear, •
And the night cornett,
chill with dew,
0 Fattier ! let Thy light shine through !"
So let the hills of doubt divide,
So bridge with faith the sunless tide!
So let the eyes th'at full on earth"
On Thy eternal hills; luck forth; •
And in Thi , beckoning angels know
The dear ones whom we love below !
"Now let it work. Misehief thou art afoot
Take what course thou wilt."
In a neighboring village whose in
habitantshke the good peopleof Athens,
were much given to "either tell or hear,
some new thing," lived Squire P., a
facetious, good natured sort of a body,
whose jokes are even yet a matter of
Village Record and have been retold
thrciugh various editions, from folio
down to duodecimo.
Aunt Lizzy was Deacon Snipe's
wife's sister—a maiden lady of -about
fifty—she'went to all the meetings—
kept an account of ovary birth, death
and marriage, with their dates—doc
tored all the babies and knew ovary
yard in the neighborhood—showed all
the young married women how to
make soap and when they had bad
luck made every child in the house sit
cross-legged until the luck changed. In
fine, she was a kind of village factotum
—spent her time in going from house
to house, grinding out scandal to each,
as occasion required, but always con=
eluded with the way of the transgres
sor is hard; "poor Mrs. A. or 13. (as
the case was) I pity her from the bot
tom of my heart," or such very smooth
ing reflection. Aunt Lizzy was always
very feud of Strangers and others
without regard to time or place,
the state of their minds ; how they
enjoyed their mind, &c. These ques
tions were generally followed by a
string of scandal, which ivas calculated
to destroy the peace and happiness of
sonic of her best neighbors and friends;
but she, like other narrators of' this
kind, considered such intellectual mur
der as either,establishing her own fair
reputation, or as the only mode of en
tertaining, the village, and thereby ren
dering her society Agreeable.
One warm summer's afternoon, as
the Squire was sitting near his office
door, smoking. his pipe, Aunt Lizzy
was passing by with groat speed, ru
on the news of the day, when
the Squire brought her• suddenly, to,
as the sailors say, by "what's youi•
hurry, Aunt Lizzy? Walk in." The
old lady, , who never wanted a second
invitation; went into the office, and the
following dialogue commenced :
"Well, Squire P., I have been think
ing this forenoon what a useful man
you might be, if you'd only leave off
your light conversations, its the good
book says, and become a serious man
—you might be an ornament to both
Church and State, as our minister says."
"Why as to that, Aunt Lizzy a cheer
ful countenance I consider as the best
index of a grateful heart, and you
know what the Bible says on that sub.
ject—"When ye be not as the hypo•
crites of a sad countenance; but Vl
noint thy head and wash thy face
(4unt dizzy Megan to feel for her pock
'et handkerchief, for she was a taker of
snuff,) that thou appear not unto mon
"Now, then, Squire, that's just what
I told you; see how you have the
Scripter at your tongue's cud ; what a
Useful man you'd be in our church, if
you'd only be a doer as well as a hear
er of the word." •
"A 3 to that, Aunt Lizzy, I don't see
that your "professors," as you call
them, are a whit better than 1 am in
private. 1 respect sincere profession
as much as any man i 1 know enough
of one of your church, whom you think
a great deal of, to know that she is no
bettor than she should be."
At these inuendoos, Aunt Llzzy's
blank eyes began to twinkle; she 'eat
down beside the Squire, in order to
, ilioak in a . fo‘vor tone , ----bpread her
handkerchief over her lap, and began
to tap the cover of her snuff box in
true style, and all things being in lead
iness for a regular siege Of "scandal=
mag nal UM," she commenced' fire— "
'Now, Squire, I want t. 4 know what
you mean by' one of our' 'church. I
know who yoti mean, the trollop, I
didn't like so many curls about her
head when she told her exl - terionee."
The squire,. finding that curiosity
was putting his boots on,
had no occa
sion to add spurs to the heck, for the
old lady had one in her head that was
worth both of them: Accordingly he
had no peace until he consented to ox
plain what he meant by the expression
"in private." This was ti'dear word
with Aunt Lizzy.
"Now, Aunt Lizzy, will you take it
Bible oath that you will never commu
nicate what I am about to tell you to
a living being, and that :you will keep
it while you live as a most inviolable
"Yes, Squire, I declare I won't never
toll nobody nothing about it as long as
I breathe the breath of life; and I'll
take' a Bible oath on it; there, sartain
as I live, Squire; before you or any
other magistrate in the whole country."
"Well, then, you* know when I went
up to Boston a yeara go?"
"Yes, yes, Squire, and I know who
went with you, too—Susey 'B. and
Dolly T. and her sister Prudence."
"Never mind who went with me
Adat'Lizzy; there was a whole lot of
'None of your buts, Squire, out with
it; if folks will act so—a trollop."
"But Aunt Lizzy, I'm afraid you
will bring me into the scrape."
"I've told you over' and over again
that nobody never• shall know any
thin!!• about it and your wife knows
that I ain't leaky."
"My wife! I wouldn't have her
know what 1 am going to say for the
world ; why, Aunt Lizzy, , if she'should
knoW it—, ' ,
""Well,don't, be afraid Squire, once
all, I'll take my oath that no livin'
crittur shan't never as long as I live,
know a lisp on't."
"Well then—if you must know it
1-slept wit.h._c t ne of the likeliestofyoiir
church members netudr Vdrifie way
4unt Lizzy drew id' a long breath—
shut up her snuff box, and put it hi
her pocket, muttering to herself—
"The likeliest of our church mem
bers-1 thought it was Susey B. Like-,
Host!—this comes of. being flattered—
a trollop. Well, one thing I know--the
way of the transgressor is hard; but I
hope you'll - never Voir - 'nobody on't,
Squire; for sartain as the world if sich
a thing should be known, our church
would be scattered abroad, fike sheep
without a shcperd."
In a few moments Aunt Lizzy took
her departure, giving the Squire an
other caution, and a sly wink as she
said good bye—let me alone for a se
It was not many days before Squire
P. received a very polite note from
Parson G. requesting him to attend a
meeting of the church, and many of
the parish, at South Conference room,
in order to settle, some difficulties with
ONE of the church members, who in or
order to clear up her character, request
cd.Squire P. to be present.
The Parson, who was a worthy man,
knew the frailty of some of the weak
sisters, as Aunt Lizzy called them, and
as he was a particular friend of Squire
P's ' requesting him in his note to say
nothing of it to his wife. But the
Squire took the hint, and telling his
wife that there was a parish meeting,
requested her to be ready at two
o'clock, and ho would call for her.
Accordingly the hour, of meeting
came—the whole village flocked to the
room, which could not hold half of
them. All eyes were alternately on
the Squire and Susey B. his. P. star
ed, and Susey looked as though she
had been crying for a fortnight. The
Parson with ri softened tone, and in as
delicate , manner as possible, stated
the story about Susey B. which he ob
served was in everybody's mouth, and
which ho did not himself believe a
word of—and Squire P. being called on
the stand as witness—after painting in
lively colors the evils of slander, with
which their village had been infested
and particularly the church,. called on
Aunt Lizzy in presence of the meeting,
and before the church, to come cult and
make acknowledgement for violating a
bible oath Aunt Lizzy's apology was,
that she only told Deacon Snipe's wife
on't—and smi took au oath, that she
wouldn't never tell nobody olio on't.
Deacon Snipe's wife had, it appears
sworn Roger Toothakor's sister never
to tell nobody on't—and so it wont
through the whole church, and thence
through the village.
The Squire then acknowledged be
fore the whole meeting, that he had as
he told Aunt Lizzy, slept with a church
member half the way up to Boston,
and that ho believed her to be ono of
the likeliest members inasmuch as she
never would hear or retail SLANDER.
All eyes were alternately on Susey B.
and Squire P.'s wife---r Aunt Lizzie en
joyed a kind of diabolical triumph,
which the SqUire no sooner perceived
than ho finished his sentence by de
claring that the h idh member to
whom ho alluded, was his own lawful
Aunt Lizzy drew in her head under
a huge bonnet, as a turlle (1 . 00 under
his shell, and matched away into one
corner of the room, like a dog that has
boon 'killing sheep. The S q uire, as
usual, burst out into a fit' of laughter,
frein which his wife, Susoy and
even the Parson coul not help joining
—and Par Son G. afterwards acknowl
edged that Squire P. had giVen a death
blow to 8 ' caudal in the village, which
all his preaching could not have done.

Perilous Balloon Voyage Across Lake
An exchange informs us that an
teronaut named Thompson,who ascen
ded recently from Toronto, descended
safely near this city, the balloon hai
ing been taken' by -a strong upper
current across the lakes. Much anxie
ty was felt in Toronto as to Thomp
son's fate before the telegram arrived
announcing his safe landing. Mr.
Thompson gives the following account
of his adventure:'
"The balloon ascended at 4 10, and
from the velocity- the balloon was trav
elling at, I soon perceived-it was fool
ish to try to decend. It Soon became
evident to me that landing in Canada
was out of the question, and that all
arrangements must be made to ho dri
ven across the lakes. The first thing
that struck 'me was to drop the grap
nel to the full extent-120 feet. This
acted as a•guide to the distance the
balloon might be kept above the stir
face of the water . ; it being now dark,
and, by placing one hand on- the rope,
the effect of the grapnel striking the
water was distinctly felt. With an
open bag of ballast:on my knee; every
lime the grapnel struck the water, a
couple of handfulls of sand were thrown
out—and to this plan alone I owe my
preservation and success.
"The ballast taken was about three
hundred and fifty pounds. Fur. three
hours that plan was carried out, and
them came on ono of the most drench
ing and merciless rains I have ever
felt; I could not see fifteen feet before
toe, and the noise of the rain on the
Wilton and the water was such as to
entirely unnerve the, My hands be
came numb, and I-was drenched to the
skin. I now began to perceive my
position more acutely, though I de
termined not to give up until all the
ballast and movables were gone. The
rain was making the balloon heavier
every moment, till about ten o'clock,
when the fatigue overcame me. I fell
into a stupor for a few moments. By
:time -the- hallootr - had
within six feet of water, and instantly
out went twenty eight pounds of bal
last. The effect of this was 'that the
balloon rose to an altitude of a mile,
entire thfough the rain clouds, and
then the moon shone brilliantly, and
in this position in remained about a
quarter Of an hour: The effect of the
moon shining on the cloud beneath
was such as any artist
- might be proud
of. The shadow of the balloon was
distinctly to be seen travelling over
the rough and uneven clouds, giving
the idea of a ballodn race. Everything
now became calm. ' No longer the
huni of the lake or' the rain. All was
still, but whether the stortn still raged
beneath was 'unknown. As the bal
loon descended, it was ovidenta change
had come over the scene. The rain
had ceased, and the. appearance of
everything was of,-the darkest lino;
whether it was an under stratum- of
dark clouds could not
-be known. Sud
denly a glimmer of light was seen for
a moment; then, with anxious eyes
cast down to perceive any object, at
last small squares with darker mar
gins were clearly visible. These prov
ed to be the fields, and hedges, and
they appeared to vanish as quickly as
objects passed when in an express
train: A town was at last seen, and I
heard' the sound of musical instru
ments.. 1 then called out to know
whore I was, but the reply was unin
telligible. They, however, saw it was
a balloon. About two miles further
on the grapnel caught in a largo oak
tree; and held fast. This afterwards
proved to be a little village near Cleve
land. I then called oat lustily; the
sounds of persons singing and playing
music were heard. These proved to
be /our young men who had been to a
ball. They were natives of Cleveland,
and as they advanced nearer my voice
was heard. They at once set to work
to pull the balloon out of the woods
and convey it to a field, whre it could
be folded up. It was then 3 o'clock in

A TAPE-WORM SIX HUNDRED F,Err
IN LENa•ru.—We hiive sometimes read
accounts of tape-worms several feet
and sometimes yards in length, , being
taken from individuals, but if we had
over seen it averred that ono had been
taken complete and entire two hun
dred yards in length, unless wo bad
received very liberal pay for crediting
it, we should have declined. Dr. Gunn
records it as an extraordinary fact that
he had seen one a hundred feet in
length, and we believe it has not gen
erally been conceded by medical Au
thorities that the creature ever roaeh 7
CB a greater length, or thatit is possi4
ble to remove such an . ono entire and'
undccomposed. But be that as it may,
we yesterday saw one in the office of
Drs. Head' and Dahlman, of the species
technically known as Tainia Lata,
which is believed to measure fully two
hundred yards in length. Dr. Dahl
man informed us that he had measured
150 lengths of the table before him
(about three feet long)'with fully one
fourth of the varmint still in the bottle.
It looks very much like a piece of
white tape from one sixth to ono-fourth
of an inch in width, narrowest at the
extremilitis: It was taken from a son
of Mr. Jacob Straub, some 10 years of
age, living two or three miles from
town. Drs. Head and Dahlman were
two hours in taking the worm froth
him. The boy was ;very much emaci
ated, having been, wasting away for a
year or more, but is-now doing well.
The operation was performed last
Saturday. This. remarkable. worm will
be subjected to ,s'cioutifie.analyeis, and
placed in Soine - tuedieal - Museum. It
will be an object of great interest and
curiosity to the medical fraternity.—
STREET CAR INCIDENT.—The street
car is the witness of varied life and in
cident, which aro often not only inter
esting, but worthy of the compliment
of a little printer's ink. An incident
occurred in a neighboring city the oth
er day which is deserving of a. para
graph. A lady passenger discovered
that her'pocket had been picked of its
portmonaie and eo_ntents, sincluding,, a
generous supply of cash for sbopping,
and sonic other pleasant,- possessions.
On learning this,disagroeublo fact ,She
said, with commendable emphasis
"Mr: Conductor, I have had my
of picked since I entered this car, and
us no one got out, the thief must new
be here. I want you to call a police
man at once and s.:curo my property."
The conductor declined to do this, and
the lady insisted. A sharp altercation
took place, in the midst of which a
short lady, with a keen, jumping eye,
and with a brisk, movement, ,almost
leaped from her seat, and said very
sharply, "I,declare it is really too bad
that the_ conductor will not call tho
police. If there 'is no gentleman in ,
the car man enough tondo as the lady
wishes, then I will." She thereupon,
made a rapid exit from the
shot down street like an arrow. She
was the pickpocket !
PNEUMATIC CONVEYANCE.—The "WU;
coss of the last pneumatic undertaking
in. London, by which the mails and
small parcels' are shot from point to
point with great rapidity and•at little
cost, has induced the people of Now
York to consider the expediency of
adopting it. A company has, how
ever, been formed in Now Jersey,
which is about to create an experi
mental line between Newark and Jer
sey City, and so anticipate tho Gotha
mites. Their plan contemplates a
wooden tube three Riot, in diameter,
either elevated or resting on the
ground, through which cars will be
driven at the rate of ono.hundrod mile
an hour, under an American patent.
The tube will cost about $lO,OOO per
mile. Should the undertaking. work
as well in this country as it does in
Europe, and accomplish the expecta
tions of its promoters, it may , very
well be that the invention will be ap•
plied in other cities and extended to
other uses, so that compressed air will
come to be a rival agent to steam and
heat and water power. We can see
many advantages, should the theory
prove practically advantageous and
THE IDLER CAUOHT NADiHNID.—An
idle fellow chanced, on a hot summer's
day, to scat himself on the temptipg
smooth surface of a resting-place that
was near at band, which happened to
bp a half•harrel of pitch; and finding
his seat easy and yielding like a mill:
ion, ho gave himself no trouble inthink
ing of the consequence, but soon fell
fast asleep; when the pitch, by the
natural beat of his body, gently yield
ed to the pressure, and ho presently
sunk into it so deep that it flowed
around him. When he awoke from his
nap, he found bitusalf thus so closely
encircled and embraced by the mass
of pitch, that ho was totally unable to
extricate himself, and must have per
ished had not his friends helped to dig
him out of his imprisonment.
