from the London. Daily News
th e sillage bells were ringing
Br the border of the sea; •
Tho robin blithOy singing,
. Chanted in the holly tree;
From the elinsabout the hall-- -
Front the. mill beside the weir.--
Underneath the elturehardtlall-
Came the gathering group % to player.
Then they softly closed the door,
And the people all-arose, . •
'Mid the knights upon the floor, . -
Who had Saracens for foes;
/tAdithe simple psalm was sung,
And thechildren turned
Wla'cre the baron!s hat - climent
And the grips .Crusader lay.- •
• •
In th \ varved chancel knits, •
litielt,a maiden in the .tun,
And the Marble on the walls
Told of fields her father won.
She was pleading in her loV'e,
Thai - her lover iniEbt not, die;
Ahd the angels wept above—
For they heard his dying cry.
The iweet chimes from the steeple
Reached the 'sailor on the waves,
The voices of the people ' • ,
Whispered low among the graves;
Through the meadows and the lane—
To the lighthouse on the hill— .
To their homes they went again,
And the village green was stilL
On on.itheheight .
' Where in piing the •riolets.blOw—:
Famous anning famous tights—
Raged the Wittle with the foe; •
, Through the dark - the rides flash ed;
Sword and plume were wet with rain—
Through the hush battallions dashed,: .
Charged, uud cheered, and charged again
Man to man, and steel twsteel—
When the muskets cease: to fire—
TiU the 'swerving columns. reel,
• Till the stiartning sex& retire;
GFaiiii; and Chai.setirs side 'by side,
Ear'ned themselves a g orious name,
TirtivelN;fought and nollv died •
In the Brotherhood of fano.
Underneatil . the pollard oaks
ClusterL:d oa a grassy -knoll, •
Where the woodmatis ringing strokes
- Never slash the :,lender hole;
Meeting death among his men,
Grasping still his lather's sword
Never more to change again ;
Lay the loved, one on the sward.
Bc the ruined mill he sleeps
In the grtWe,his comrades share,
Auct the maiden's gift he keeps—
One soft tress of shining Lair.;
She will often pass in cireain . s . •
.To that grave beside the Mill,
When the Winter moonlight streams,
And the snow lies on the hill

I was at Vienna a few' years ago. After
trying several tables . .. Deaf!, I established my
sent a hotel in the Juderistrasse,- frequent
ed by'a select society. • Mr..,Muller, - master
of thisestablishment, did its honors with tlioi--
ough • Germiin gravity. Perfect order, -ex
&cute and i.onseientigus eleanlineSs, reigned
throughout the house. One might 'pass thro'
the .servants* room, - and even through the
kitchens, w,thout meeting -With
. anythino by
which the sight mas in" the least! titifendcd.—
. cellar was as well .arranged, as a book
case, and The regulations of the house,
garded both the service and the hour of - meals.
were, as. punctitally observed as they could
have. been in a seminary. If a guest came in
late, though it were but ten' minines, lie was j
served apart iu an• adjoining room, that the
comfort all might not be sacrificd to_ the
convenience of one.. '
• In 'the conversatEiUt :it. this table:dhote
there prevailed a tone of good society,.which
exchided neither ease nor pleasantry,but. a
caustic or indelicate -expression woud have
jarred on the carlike a false note iu a 'well
executed concert.. The countenance of Mrs.
-Muller, in which dignity was blended with
benevolence, was the barometerby whiehthe
-young men regulated: thiniselves When the
influence of or Se r itin Beer might
lead_ them a little too 'far. Then Mrs. Muller
assumed an - air of reserve . ; by a few words
she adroitly broke offthe conversation, and
-turned •it into another Channel :; and she Wane-.
ed gravely at her daughter,'Who, without al
feetation or pouting, kept her eyes. fixed on
her Plate until the end - of the Meal. • •
Ellen Muller was the type. of those beanti
ful German file-es which the French Call
because they .know not how to read HIT) ;
sibe was a happy mixture. of the Saxon and
Hanoverian characters. A pure . and . open
brow. eyeS of inexpressible softness, lips ha
.' bitually closed with maidenlyreServe, a trans
parent ilomplexion, whose- charming blushes
, each moment protested - against the . immobili
ty of her bearing,
.aubtirn hair whose rich and
:-filken curls aomirably: harmonized with the
.serenity of her;feature.s, a graceful and flexi
ble form just expanding into .womanhood
such was Ellen Muller.

eousequence of an injustice that had been .done

of conversation, ib which• Mr. Muller, a man
brextensii;e acquirements- and .great
took part, with a choice of expression and an
elevation:of views , . that would hare 'astonish

I was not long in perceiving that Baron
von N 61.11 and young student - nanied War

cranes and. merit". In the Baron,

The pretensions ofEllen's two admirers
manifestkkl themselVes by tittentions' of Very
different kinds, and in which -were displayed
their different natiires. The . Baron 'brought

This 2bilsideratio'p would' be. sufficient to
prevent any citizen; loyally i'adhering, to the
ecinstittition, from- f ; Sanctioning, the admission
of; the Mormons into our circle of States;
but there are other, and equally-weighty'rea
?lt has been shown on what. Iwo' occasions,
the subject 'of .religion is mentioned in our
'Constitution. .It enjoi,ns- poii the,. United_
States neqr to make any lalv-respecting an
establishment 'of religion, or:, prohibiting the
free exercise theicot; and or4ains that no' re-,
ligiouslest be ever . required as a qualification
for any public . office. At th i n same time, it
prescribes 'certain oaths• to; be taken, for
which, howevep, solemn- affirination may be ,
substituted-40 substitute which had been
adOpted England, with reference to Qua
kers. prior to ',he framing. of!Our pact
shall not inquire .whether the prohi-.I
bitiun of establishing' a chin* which means I
acknowledging and: supporting, it. as a part.
and parcel of the State, and (he command of
allowing 'free exeniise of religion,' as well as
the religious tests; Whether thp,.se arc sufficient
to; - bind us in all cases of admitting a'State,
wholly to dismiss the question of religion

ask ourselves, Can people, - jitli . s.'uch or4aichi

part of oar system;! can tlnticonsideration.of

-admitting on ingredient- with a rcvoltin re

lig,ion `into the great' organist - 4 •
_ .
;Some vekingt cases play be readily irnag
ini:d. We must not forget; that the Union, -
frOth being . a neighboring State to Eur Ope,
has 'become a, contiguous Country to.Asia i
and our new and incipient ti:lations to Asia
'micrht.prodUce a large influx of Asiatic pagan
ism, coupled with a distinct raw, which, with
(Mt any great stretch,of- our imagination,'
might be supposed to 'reuch.the point, of ap
plication for admission, and it 'might, then,
bCcome necessary to ask the. question; What ,
did our'forefathcrs exactly unean , wliCn they
Ried the word' religion:in the Constitution'?
Where are the limits of. the,word,l'or are
there. none? Have we to understand it ae
olrding to the U811:1. lo4men4 The meaning it.
hid. at the time, among these men who used
its and the sphere
.of action'aulthought in
which they used 'it? 're tigui! ;ioquendi is
onc of the elements° all safe , intierpretkion.
Or ought we to take the term 'religion - hilts
widestsense, in which the philos,ooical writer.
rues it, fur the ao•greirate Of all relations
which subsist, or which men imagine to sub- .
silt, between them and' all,! ,that surrounds
them on the one Lind, and a :superior, or
ninny superior beings of influencing power on
the other hand ?. t ' ! •
. We waive this whole consideration. We
grant. that the member of congress may dis-
Miss the questieu of religion when a State
calls upon .liim for 'admission. !that is, we
grunt that he need riot occupy himself With
religion as religion., lie takd not trouble
himself iu the case-we contemplate, : with the
eiact relation in which the Mormon; in his
oWn conscience,
belieVes - hirtiself to stand to
his' bodily, perfeetible; - marrnid. 'Buddah god.!
SO.far as this goes, he miry : leave the Mor-
Mons, to uSe - a- fii,Voritc!expression of their_
.OWn, 'severely : 'alone.' ' But the question
clues not end here..
as considered it so far;
i 4 a purely mental or: psychological matter.
lt is like; the moral theory of ethical philoso
phers, who diner asto•the moral sense. It is
very different! matter .when we come to
morality and mend act.ei themselves, when
AVe have. to remember that all States and-
O'ery coinpotind.of States are jural societies;
Old that the very idea of rights awl justice
Is. founded - on the antCcedent idea that man
is an ethical being., • Neither trecs)ior aribßals
have rights, whatev \ e'r .obligations may be
imposed-upon ns, 'towards them as being the
creatures of our;, own, d kiil,
in this case, for 'the Moral .character of man",.
We do not. go.' ‘ behind the record,' on
. the .
contrary, we take politiCal 'mart in his con
stituent parts as We Must takehirn, and as we
Must take all eble if . we wissh to handle' the
given material W l iselY,lightly, and righteourighteous. l
T,he,first ConsOlgratioti that presents, itself
here that although we may have sound
reasons for dismissing the subject of religion
'in Certain spheres of - ireflection,-this does by
rio means imply-that; !because a Man chooses
to call att act of his roligouk. therefore he can
de , it.Witit imptinity,nr that itlwevents us
`from taking cognizance of it. We enjoy re,
