This life of ours is liko tlio flow
Of musio through lh nir,
Which liriatlioi of liniincea or woe,
Of rmiliilenee or enro ;
Tho Handing nolo, tbrnueh phnnpoful yean,
Fwoll with a vnrvinc no,
And trembling oft iu stniloa aud uar
Mako melody or moan.
To chords wHhlu each human Hfo
Attunes its anwcrit.r lay,
As o'er tin world's difturhiiig atrifo
OurheBrt-nonK float awny ;
Joy's trilling tiu, on soaring wings,
Hie warblinc to tlio fun.
While the sad strains which sorrow sinpi
Through minor measures ruu.
6omotimes tho Rcntlo murmers go
In quiot humble song,
As where the stream's mellifluous flow
Bounds peacefully along j
Sometimes tho music rises high,
Mujeslio and profound,
Aud roils bonoiitu the echoing sky
la tones of lofty sound.
The universe with natal songs, '
Thrilled through its last oxpans.
And still tho melody prolongs
While listening years advance;
One choral chord combines tho strains
In firm yet sweet control.
As b'er those star-illumined plains
The heavenly pa-ans roll.
Earth-songs, though varied, all will float
Kcsponsivo to the skies,
If but one deep resolving uote
Their music underlies!
Oft in this harmony sublime
Strains loud aud lowly bend,
And in tiC irding tune and tim
Eiu'iingly ascend.
Alas! that o'er this concord fair
Some jarring sounds we hear.
Disturbing all the vocal air,
And every tuneful ear ;
Our songs, imperfect, yield too oft
Notts of discordant strain,
Which, 'mid their cadence so soft,
Wako interludes of pain.
Kolicn tones, whose inurmcring plains
Come sighing from their strings.
Breaths loumU symphnnioiis in the strains
Which nature's anthem rimre ;
Kor should we mourn though sad and low
Our life-long songs arisr-,
So they but move, through all their flow
In concert with the skies.
A lute Parisian newspaper tells the fol-
lowing story or n wealthy Englishman i,
who may constantly bo seen ot the Grand
0;er, and the Italian Opera, nnd who en-:,
joys o reputation, not only for music but
as being a great amateur of painting.
How tno repu-aiion was ucqmreu, yuu
will presently seo.
Ho was one of those Kedouin English
men, who live alternately in tho Euro-
pean capitals, except when they are on an
occasional jaunt to Egypt, or to China, or
to India, or the Holy Land. Ho never
traveled olonc ; his wife was with him
his boni fide wife for, notwithstanding
his errant life, "so apt to weaken one's
morals," he had all the English respect
for the sex, and a true Englishman's love
for his wik She was a beautiful worn
an, one or those keep sake beauties, that
once seen, make a man dream forever.
Her social success wis very great in a.l
tho cities they visited.
In Romo, after being married somo years,
they became acquainted with a German
artist, of a good reputation, who, to his
art, joined the learning of a P.enedicline,
and knew the city of Rome as well as
WinUIemann orNisconti. The German
volunteered to be their cicerone in iho
Eternal City they gladly accepted the
oiTer. Many were ihe hours they passed
in the museum of the capital, in tho Vn.
linn n in St Peier's. and ill tho delightful
excursions they made in tho environs of

This artist became in love with the
English lady ; she reciprocated his nfloc
tion Tho husband was a long time in
seeing the Main upon his honor. Sev-
era! months passed oway before he pprceiv.
ed it, for he was very much pleased with
the artist, and they had lonp bsea on the
most intimate footing. Although stung
to the quick by such Inso faithlessness

.-,i r-innrkhin. ho said nothing ,
ZJisc lie was nevertheless
determined upon a complete reng.-, r
ho appealed to cooler rcflcct.on to furnish
a suitable punishment, as the passions are
bad counsellors. ,
Ho lea Italy, and retired With his wile
to England, saving nothing bu: rcwur
o the artist. When he reached England,
he told his wife of the discovery he had
made, and gave her Lack to her fathers
hands. .
He then returned to the continent alon,
and visited Germany, Russia, ond France,
where ho purchased n great many paint
ings. Ho then went to Italy, meanwhile
ronlioaed to purchnse paintings, and at
last two years had now passed awoy

Tho Inst word was hardly out of the sec
ond's mouth when tho Englishman fired
without moving. His antagonist's pistol
fell from his hand, and was discharged by
tho fall, the hell burying itself Tn tho
"round. The Englishman's brill shattered
the artist's wrist ; an (imputation was ne
cessary his earner of artist was ended
and forever.
A few day's nftrr tho amputation, the
Englishman called on him, and without
noticing tho angry reception he met, said
to the sullering artist :

beginning to read becomes delighted with
a new'spaper, because he reads the names
of things that ore very familiar, and will
make progress accordingly. A newspa
per iu one year is worth o quarter's school

sider that substantial information is con
necied with advancemen . The mother of
a family, being hersolf cue of tho heads
nnd having a more immediate charge of
the children should herself bo instructed.
A miuJ occupied becomes fortified against
the ills of life, and is braced for any cmer

dyke. lie slopped and thought w hat the

Should ho run home and alarm tho villa-
gers, it would bo dark before they could
arrive, nnd tho hole even then might bo
so largo as to defy ull attempts to close it.
Prompted bv these thoughts, he seated
himself on the bank of the canal, stouned
the opening with his hand, und patiently

clergyman, walking up Iho canal, heard
a groan and looked around to seo where
it came from. 'Why are you there, my

prised at his strange positir n. 'I am keep,

A Story of a FailL.'iil Dm.
The folion ing story is mid, by tbf Ports-
mouth Chronicle, to be derived, us to nil
evenlide slept SWeetlv.
Ono morning, however, she awoke with
an extraordinary and unwonled gloorn up-
on her mind, which was impressed with
the rpprehension that something strnngo
was about to happen to her or hers. So
full was sho of this thoiHit that she could
not stay nt homo that day, but must go
abroad to give vent to it, by unbosoming
herself to her friends, especially t ) her
daughter. With her sho spent tho greater
part of tho day, and to her she several
times repeated the recital of her npprchen
sions. The daughter as often repeated tho
assurances that the good mother had never
done injury to any person, nnd added, 'I
cannot think any ono would hurt you, for
you have not an enemy in the world.'
"As the day was declining, Mrs. Moz
her sought her home, but expressed tho
same feelings os fIio left her daughter's

which had ncnrlv ripened 11110 fear, and
from the lady of tho mansion she received
answers similar to these of her daughter.
"You have harmed no one in your whole
lifetime, surely no ono will molest yen.
"Go in quiet, and Rever shall go
with you." "Here Rover," said she to a
stout walch-dogthat lay on the floor, "here
Rover, go home with Mrs. Mozher, and
take care of her." P.cver did as he was
told. The widow went home, milked her
cows, took care of everything out of doors,
nnd went to bed ns urual. Kover had not
left her for an instant. When she was
fairly in bed, he laid himself down upon
tho outside of ihe bed, nnd as the w idow
relied on his fidelity, nnd perhaps chid
herself for needless fear, sho fell asleep.
Sometime in the night she awoke, being
startled, probably, by a slight noise out
side the house. It was so slight, howev
or, that sho was not aware of being star
tled at nil, but heard as soon as she awoke
a sound liko tho raising of a window near
her bed, which was iu a room on the
ground floor.
"The dog neither barked nor moved.
NexV there was another sound, as if somo
one was in die room and stepped cauti
ously nn tho floor. The woman saw noth
ing but now for tho first lim J felt the dog
nun.', as ho made a violent spring from
the bed, and nl the samo moment r.jcse
thing fell on tho floor nunding like a
heavy lug. Then followed other noises,
like the pawing of a dog's feet; but soon
nil was still again and tlio dog resumed his
placo on the bed without having barked
or growled at all.
"This limo the widow did not go to
sleep immediately, hut laynwake wonder
ing, yet not deeming it best to get up.
H it nt last she dropped asleep, and when
she owoko the sun was siiininir. f-'in has
tily stepped out of bed, and th?re lay ihe
body of a tnttn extended or. the floor, dcrt J,
with a largo knife in his hand wh'ch was
even now extended. The dog hid seized
him by the throat with a grasp nf death,
and neither man nor dog could titter n
sound till a!! n-iis over. This man wan

tience, he could not wait f r tho deiay H'
na'.'irc to givo her property up to him nnd
his, os the only heirs apparent, but made
this stealthy visit to do n deed of darkirss
in the gloom of the night. A luarful retri
bution wailed for him. Tho widow's op
prt hrnsions communicated lo her mind
