"Such stuff as dreams are ma - lo of."
It matters not though day discover •
flow false the joys I fondly know;
When night and slumber round me hover,
1u dreams at leait3 dud thee true.
Though all the day's long boat*, of. sadueS:a,
My irearrlito flows on in pain,
The night shill bring unwonted gladness
And give thee to my soul again.
Oute more thy lips with warm impression *.
,Shall lay their gentle seal on mine;
Again with shrinking, sweet confession,
Thy tender eyes before me shine.
Thy cheek with my check softly meeting,
Thy twiciug arms around me thrown,
111 watch how fast thin 'night is fleeting, ,
And count thy heart-beats thro' mine own
Oh, happy night, and 'weary waking,
When dawns the day-star,.cold and blue!
'Tit daylight tells how hearts are breaking;
In dreams alone I find thee true!

Within a stone's throw of the Par

imity to each i .other may well recall
to mind the • expic:;.,ion, (indicative
. of the deteL ruination of "young Eng
land " to achieve in life or death an
honorable fame), " initiate; Ab
bey or a peerage." Similar was, the
exclamation attributed •to Nelson 'at
the Battle of the :Nile, " Vietory or
Watininster Abbey !" Achieving the
former, there appeitro no good reason
why . he should not a-ko have succeed
ed, in the latter wish, save that his
countryinen saw -fit to bury Lim • in
St. Paul's. •
The venerable edifice of Westmin
ster, which has witnessed for centu
ries the coronation of England's sov
ereigns, and whose precincts
solnany of them lie, together with
the not less illustrious dead of Eng
land's poets, warriors, philo - sophers
and statesmen, was erected by Ed
ward the Confessor, in the eleventh
century. While au exile in Norman,
dy, he vowed a pilgrimage 'to the
Holy Sepulchre to the event of his
deliverance. The fulfillment of this
v o w was by a special dispensation of
Pope Alexander commuted to the
erection or restoration of the Abbey;
its s:te being dictated to the English
King in a sision, by St. Peter him
self—!laving formerly been, , its it is
said, that of a church consecrated 'by
the Apostle himself while in the flesh.
Whicti eircinastanee may suffice to
establish the fact that St. Peter once
sojourned ripen the banks of the
Thaw. , —let the mojted - question„ be
settled as it may, lit regard to his
ever having seen the Tiber.
—Subsequent reigns witnessed
successive additiOns within and with
out the sacred : changing the
form of its outline, (it having been

The South I rausept, where one- of
tlie!ruost impressive interior viewsof
the Abbey is presented, - s known as
the Pot's Corner, from its numerous
memorials to the most distinguished
' poets of England. The insCriptions
are not wholly appropriate or worthy
of their object, the place or the eves=

seem the lines u . pon Gay's e ' monnment,

"Lift i 3 a jest, awl all thingi shor. it;

Eastern End of the Abbey Church, of

and workmanship, it, constitutes one
of the most admired portions. To
add to the effect of its interior, the
entrance or vestibule is by its con
struction invested with a sole tun i an d
impressive obscurity. In regard to
this Chapel, 'Washington Irvin , ' says:

cunning labor of the chisel, to have
been robbed of its Weight and densi

and the fretted roof achieved with
the wonderful minuteness and airy
security of a, cobweb." Upon the
tomb of Henry VII, which Lord Ba
con speaks of as "one of the stateli
est and, daintiest in Eniope," are the
reclining effigies of the monarch and
his queen. As illustrating the ideas
of that age, and their effect upon the
mind of one of the wisest and bravest
of England's Kings, it may be stated
that by the provisions of his will, no
less than 10,000 masses- were ap
roiuled to bo said for the remission
of his sins and the weal of his soul.
Furthermore, for the performance of
an impossible thing, the Convent
pl Aged themselves "to have three
chauntry moOks, perpetually while
the world shall endure, 'to say daily
mass " for Henry's .salvatiou. The
minutest particulars of the service,
even to the 100 was tapers " of the
weight of 12 lbs., and each of the
length of nine feet," were drawn up
and registered in the indentures.
Of all that is to be seen in this
chapel, there is nothing that wilt
comp tre in interest, to the reflecting
mind, with a - view of the tombs, near
by each other and similar in style,
of the rival queens, ElizAbeth. of

The man who loves his;joke is gen
erally much liked by his cuildren, and
his servants, but not always worship

great taste for joking. They hare a
word eSservinilly feminine to describe
the individual overgiveu to the prac
tice; they Call - him aggriivatiug, and
frequently inconceivable irrita
tion in his pro epee. Women love to
be courted, to be admired, to be
talked with gayly, , but' respectfully
and . gallantly all of which things it
is mostly beyond the .power of the
joker to do. Women are also fond
of sympatliy.. They have always
little troubles y their own to which
it pleases them to see a man listen
with interest and apparent compas
sion. Emotion, real or feigned, will
put a man deep in - a woman's goo
graces ; courteous and kindly defer.:

the other hand; the inveterate face
tiousness of the. Man who loves his
joke will throw a woman into dumb
furies which men, who are content
to treat an eternal joker as a mere.
bore, can hardly realize. •
Nothing so exaspe s rates a
to see her husband make light
those small domestic miseries over
which women fret because they have
often nothing else to occupy their
time with ; and Men addicted to
joking are always. doing this. If
stimething goes wrong in house,
if a crystal dish be carelessly broken,
they can seldom resist the temptation
of being funny; and the more 'amen
table the incident fromrthe uxorial
point of view, so much the more lively
will be their jesting.
If Balzac hhd ever sketched- the
man who loves his joke, he' would
have pointed out, with his diabolical
spirit of induction, liow men who act
thus gradually estrauge their wires.
Women will

If so, learn to listen.
- But first, leain, what, listening is--=
for it is not merely the , exercise of
he• sense of-hearing. The stupidest
of us. all can keep. ears open and
mouth slay. To listen Properly,
means to make ether people - talk
properly. That is it. social definition,
if it is .not a. Webeteria,n one. The
good listener is a cause of lalkingin
others, and by a proper exercise of
this . valuable and too scarce gift,
makes the diffident s# wliat they
think and - the verbose think- what
they say.' For the greatest talkers
are careful when they find' they have
a good listener. They know, that
they may not often be so fortunate,
and they' talk their best.. The adept
ih listening may sometimes' - hear'
more probing than he likes, but if he!
be skillful this will not often happen.
