mrsmzsr fob snx dispatch.:
HE da j was a beau
tiful one, and I was
sitting under the
trees one morning
talking to a few of
who dwelt in the old
then occupied the
square bounded by
Tenth and Eleventh
and Spruce and
Pine streets in Phil
adelphia. It was a
Chapel Wlndota. charming Sunday in
(the late sprincof lS2i, and the air was laden
with the perfumes of beautiinl flowers. I
j rasn my way to Europe, and slipped over
f ths Quaker City to gratify my curiosity
alVoutthe quaint people who inhabit it, of
t4 Worn X had heard so much. This Sabbath
mtitrning I had wandered into the alms
halise grounds, and as I sat under the shade
of '.,great tree, the chimes of old Christ
Chi tieh rang out the call to worship. The
hom", the interesting surroundings, and the
day .impressed me so much that 23 years
later 'ifhen I came to write the poem of
Evaivjeline X felt inspired to have the wan
derers meet in this old poorhouse- and be
buried: n the yard of Christ Church."
Thus :?poke the poet Longfellow not long
before liV died, while telling me how and
why he "wtrote bis greatest idyl.
Time, t be necromancer, has wrought few
changes i W old Christ Church, known to a
world of readers but seen by few. Here, in
what was tOioe the heart oJ the busy city
and is ere5now one of the noisiest parts of
Penn s old ,ixwn, stands tne ancient eaince
commemorate by the poet as the burial
place or lis- hapless Iorers. The little
bouse of woiship which stands sentinel
orer this reunion needs something of
this poetic limey to relieve its austerity
of outline ana1 construction. It was built
by sturdy and ttevout Evangels 160 years
ago for the ibrM 8 of that comfortable faith
which is tangnt.ny mejjgicnuirareii,
Old ChrM Chin "eft.
TOMB OF THE TXt"XBS.
To the eye of the mind the tomb of the
lovers is as visible as the rev ting places of
any of the great dead who .art laid in pre
tentions graveyards All is -so simple and
peaceful here: all to real that the sublime
story the tercTlold so well of O, ie final end
unfolds itself to Fie eye.
The poet's dreamwded here. In this old
sepulchre, grown wVh ivy, -rinclad and
moss-covered, the magicf a iovelj 'imagina
tion laid Evangeline and Sflbriel t o rest. It
stands to-day as it stood ahen, only older
and more obscured by the rav.esAot time.
I parted the matted evergreensSto find the
inscription washed out by the Vo sion of
years. Yet the romance of the o, mb re
mains as fresh and green as the :flYe ring
plants about it. Nv
It was with a strange delight thatTiuearii
the story over hfain from the bard himself,
not long before he died. The sparkle o f the
eye and the vivacity of speech gave aRiiost
an absurd contradiction to the snowy Iccks
which covered the shapely head. The out
linesof "Hiawatha" and its metrical cvn
Etruciion were gone over, and afterward -fi ie
legend of "Miles Standish," with its hii
' morons plot and dainty machinery.
HIS FATOEITE POE5T.
"Yes," said the poet, " 'Evanceline'ismy
favorite poem. It is founded on fact
and upon one of the most touching episodes
of the Colonial history of this country. I
fixed the last act of my idyl in Philadelphia
for two reasons. I was a young man then,
full of the flame and ambitions of life. X
had just left college, when the story of an
Arcadian girl being lost from her lover dur
ing the bani shment, was told me by Haw
thorne. He gave tne the theme then -tod
soon after I started for a trip abroad. I
went to Philadelphia by stage. I wanted
ta seethe strange old town, -of which I bad
heard so much, and I found a mint of
poetry in the thee, thou and habits of the
Quakers, and in the institutions they had
built up and cherished. Their life, too, was
interesting, and I strolled every day out
along the banks of 'the Delaware and up
through the straight streets toward the
Schuylkill, which then flowed between
freen and well-tilled fields. The old poor
onse, at Eleventh and Spruce streets, one
day attracted my attention. Xt was a beau
tiinl place, filled with a wealth of lovely
flowers, laid with a carpet of velvety green
sward and shaded by great trees that were a
comfort alike to the rich and the poor.
Evangeline'1 1 Grave.
"What a charming home this is for the
unfortunate, I said to myself as on that Sun
day morning I wandered in through the iron
gates. Then I sat under the shade trees with
the poor and heard their story of the life
within. While filled with the inspiration
of this scene, a chime of bells sounding in
the distance, playing an old, familiar hvmn
attracted me. On the soft breezes of May
time they pealed forth notes of command
and welcome. I left the poorhouse, and
following the ttreets toward the Delaware,
came upon Christ Church.
A LASTIKO IitPEESSIOX.
"This incident with the singular sur
roundings, made a lasting impression on
my mind and 23 yean alterward, when I
came to write the poem of -Evangeline, 1
said: 'She shall cease from her wanderings
and find Gabriel in that old poorhouse; and
- -r.'Ti,iij,rf' i ...It . 3'r .1:.
they -shall be onried in the churchyard of
Christ Church. When I came to write the
last verses it was easy for me to recall these
incidents and I wrote under their inspira
tions.' "In that delightful land which Is washed by the
Guarding in sjlvau shades the name of Penn,
Stands on the banVs of its beautiful stream tne
city he founded.
There all the air is balm, and, the peach is the
emblem of beauty.
And the streets still re-echo the names of the
trees of the forest,
As if they would fain appease the Dryads whose
haunts they molested.
There from the troubled sea, had Evangeline
landed, an exile.
Finding among the children of Penn a home
and a country."
"The closing lines of the poem make the
rest easv. It took but a few words to picture
Evangeline going into the wards of the
poorhouse that Sunday moraine, and there
finding her long-searched for Gabriel. In
the nature of things both had grown old;
and in the joy of the hour, both passed to'
the spirit world. The burial in the church
yard was but a common sequence; and so I
wrote the closing lines:
"bide by side, in their nameless graves, the
. lovers are sleeping,
Under the humble walls of the little Catholic
In the heart of tho city, they lie, unknown and
A PEOLIFIC TA1TCY.
"Of course," he continued, "all this is
the work of my fancy. I coined the name
Evangeline and gave it to my Acadian
heroine, whose storv had been brought me
by the author of "The Scarlet Letter,"
"The House of Seven Gables," and so many
other charming stories. I took a great
liking to old Christ Church because there
were many striking things about it. Its
solemnity and its beauty both impressed
To-day the traffic of a million people rises

Now all that was peaceful, idylic and ruraj

The S'chuylklli, two miles away, is now

The life ot the Quaker; the nameless re
pose; the well-regulated, if somewhat delib
erate energies which went to the creation of
this great Commonwealth, were always mat
ters of keen interest to the philosophical, as
well as poetic spirit, of Longfellow. Time
has changed their outward show; years have
changed even their habiliments; experience
has modified even their methods; the cynical
sometimes say, their morals. Bat it is only
necessary to mingle among the Philadel
ptiian of to-day to mark a distinct and
abiding influence of early Quaker life.
Longfellow made almost as amplo use of
Quaker traits at times as his comrade and
friend, the Quaker poet, Whittier. Bred
in a totally different atmosphere of Boston's
social forces, the earnestness, reality and
kindly sincerities of the Quakers of 60 years
ago came upon his young life as a sign and

Everybody, it seems to us, feels an honest
pride in the marvelous growth and develop

ago its Market House was a tumble-down
looking old rickety frame building. To
day it has one of the best appointed market
bouses in the United States. The improve

have been simply wonderful. Prom the
small dingy stores have sprung colossal
palaces of industry and commerce. Passipg
