All silent wilhiu, save the ticking type,
All without sava tho night-walch turniug;
And heavily echoed tho solemn sound,
As slowly he paced o'er tho frozen ground.
And dark were iho mansions so lately that
With the joy of festivity gleaming,
And hearts that were beatinir in svmnatliv
Were now living it o'er in their dreaming ;
Yet the Printer still worked at his lonely post,
As slowly ho gathered his mighty host.
And there lay the merchant all pillowed in
And building bright hopes for the morrow,
Nor dream'd he that fate was then weaving a
That should bring him to fear and sorrow ;
Yet the Printer was there in his shadowy room
And he set in frame-work that rich man's
The young wife was sleeping, whom lately

Yet tho Printer worked on mid silence and
And du for ambition its lowliest tomb.
And slowly llmt workman went gathering up
His budget of grief and gladness;
A wreath for the noble, a grave for tho low,
For the happy a full cup of sadness ;
Strange stories of wonder to enchant tho ear,
And dark ones of terror to curdlo with fear.
Full strange aro the tales which lhat dark

ETHAN SI'IKES FIRST AND LAST VISIT TO
"Portland is all tha darndest places I
ever seed. I was down there in '33, to see
little about mv goin' to tho Legislator,
and such a rum time as I hud, you uver
heer'd tell on. Did I ever tell you about
the ice cream scrape I had !"
We answered in the negative, and he re
"Wall, I'd been down thar two or three
days, pole in' in every hole an' tho't I'd seed
every thinj there was to be seen. Hut one
day towards sun down 1 was going by a
shop in Middle street that looked wonde r
ful slick there war all manner of candv,
and peppermints an' what nots at the win
dows. An' then thar war siarns with ''old
letters on to them, hangin' round the door,
teliiti' how they sold Soda, Mead, an' Ice
cream thar. I says to myself, I havehecrn
a good deal about this 'ere ice cream an'
now I'll be darned If I don't be darned if I
won't see what thoy's made of. S , f puts
mv hands in my pockets and walked in
kinder careless an' says to a chap standing
behind the counter :
"Do you keep any ice creams here f"
"Yes', sir," says he, "how much will you

The young feller's lace swelled out, an'
he liked to have laughed right out, but arter
a while he asked
"Did you say a pint sir V
"Sartin,', says 1, "but p'reps you don't
retail, so I don't mind taking a quart."
"Wall, don't you think the feller snorted
right out. Tell yer what, it "made me feel
sort o' poison, an' I give him a look that
made hiir. look sober in about a mi nit, an
when I clinched my fist and looked so at
him, (here Mr. Spike favored us with a
most diabolical expression) he hauled in his
horns about the quickest, an' handed me a
pint of the stuff as perlite as could be.
Wall, I tasted a mouthful of it, an' found
it as cool, as the north side o' Bethel hill
in January. I'd half a mind to spit it out,
but jest then I seed the confectioner chap
grinning behind the door, which riz my
snunk. Gall smash it all, thinks I, I'll not
let that white livered monkey think I'm
uleared I'll eat the darned stufTif U freezes

"Wall, in about a quarter of an hour I
began to feel kinder gripy about here,"
continued Ethan, pointing to the lower
parts of his stomach, "an' kept on feelin'
no better very fast, till at last it seemed as
though I'd got a steam engin saw in' shin
gles in me. I sot down on a' chair and
bent myself up like a nut-cracker, thinkin'
I'd grin and bear it ; but, but I couldn't set

"You cat too much," says hei
"I tell yer 1 didn't," screamed I, "I
know what's anuf an' weal's too much
without askin' you, an' if you don't leave
off snickerin' I'll spile your lace.
He cottened risht down and said he
didn't mean any hurt, and asked me if I
hadn't better take some gin. I told him 1
would. So I took a purty good horn and
lelt the shop,
"Arter 1 got out," continued Ethan, "I
felt hettjf for a minute or so, but I hadn't
gone lar afore tho gripes took me again, so
1 went into another shop an' took some
more gin, then I set down on the State
House steps and there 1 sot and sot, but
didn't leel a darned mite better. 1 begun
to think I was goiti' to kick the bucket and
then I thought of father and mother an' old
Spanker that's father's hoss and when I
thought that I should never see 'em again,
1 fairly blubbered. But then I happened
to look up and see a dozen boys grinnin'
and laughin' at me, I tell yer what it riz
my dander that had got down below nero
rite up again. I sprung at 'em like a
wild cat, hollerin' out I'd shake their tarnal
gizzards out out, and the way the little
devils scampered was a caution to nobody.
But after the citement of the race was
over, 1 felt wuz again, and I couldn't help
a groanin' and screechin' as 1 went along.
At last I thought I'd go to the theatre,
but afore I got there the gripes got so strong
that I had to go behind a meetin' house and
holler. Arler a while I got up and went
into a shop an' cat half dollar's worth of
biled isters with four pickled cucumbers,
and wound up with a glass of brandy. Then
I went into the theatre an' seed the nlavs,
bul I felt so tarnally that I couldn't see any
fun in 'em, for I don't think the isters and
cucumbers dun me any good. I sot down,
laitl down, and stood up, but still it went
on gripe, gripe. I groaned all the tune, an'
once in a while I was obliged to screech
kinder easy. Every body stared at me an'
somebody called out "turn him out !"
once or twice. But at last jiut as the nig
ger Othello was going to put the pillar on
his wife's face to smother her, there came
such a twinge through me that I really
thought I was burstin' up, an' I yelled out
"Oh dear! Oh scissors!" so loud that the
old theatre rung again. Such a row you
never seed ; the nigger dropped the piller,
and Deuteronomy or what you call her
there his wife, jumped off the bed and
run, while every body in the theatre was
all up in a mus-i, some larfing, some swear
in': The upshot of it was the perlice car
ried me out of the theatre and told me ,to
make myself scarce.
Wall, as I didn't feel any better I went
to a shop close by, an' called for two glas
ses of brandy ; arter swallerin' it, I went
hum to the tavern. I sot down by the
winder and tried to think I felt better, but
t'was no go ; that blessed old imagine was
still wallowin' away inside; sol went out
an' eat a quarter's worth of isters an' a
piece of mince pie. Then I went back an'
ioid the tavern keeper . I felt kinder sick,
and thought I'd take some Caster ile, n
mouthful of cold meat and a strong glass of
whiskey punch, and then go to bed. He
got the fixins, which I took and went to
But, tell yer what, I had rather a poor
night. Sometimes I was awake groanin'
an' when I was asleep I'd better bin awake,
for 1 had such powerful dreams. Some
times I was skiimin' a bear, and then by
some liocusjvicus 'twould change t'other
side to, nn' the tarnal critter would be a
Tlu-n again, I'd dream that I was rolliu'
logs with the boys, a jest as I'd be a shout
in' out "now then! hero she goes?"
everything would get reversed again I
was a log, and the boys were prying me
with their handspikes. Then I'd wake up
an' screek an' roar then off to sleep a'ain
to dream that Spanker had run away
with me, or that father was whopping me
or some other plnggy thing till mornin'.
When I got up I hadn't any appetite for
breakfast, and tho tavern keeper told fne
that if I was goin' to carry on screaming
and groaning as I had the flight afore, my
room was better than my company.
"I hain't," said Mr. Spike in conclusion,
"I hain't bin to Portland since, but if I live
to be as old as Methusalem, I shall never
forget lhat all-fired Ice Cream.

A great deal of siirpiise was manifested u
pou the decision of the Chamber lliut iho
election of President should take place on tho
IOih of December. It had been generally
supposed that the election would be postpon

of establishing the organic laws in reference
to the resjwnisibility of ministers, the appoint
ment and functions of judges, tho elections,
&c, previous to tho election of President ;
while another would rather leave those sub
jects to be settled -under the new govern

Wo have received intelligence from Vienna
by extraordinary express, via Berlin. This
news reached Berlin on the 23.1 October.
No essential change has laken place in ihe
state of the cily. There is a superficial
calm, and although i,K1y f;lmii,.s ,. nJM.t
and great uncertainty prevails respecting the
impending fate of tho cily, lwta js increas
ing confidence in mercantile iillai'is. Mes-
senhuuser, the commander-in-chief of the
National Guards, has issued s everal nroclama-
tions, staling the progress of the armaments,
ihe continued hopes of an amicable arrange
ment, nnd an entreaty that the inhabitants
will preserve tho pence.
Auersperg, also, commander of ihe Inipe
rial troops, has addressed a proclamation to
the people of Austiia and Syria, iu which he
refers the present disastrous slate of things
to tho restless intrigues of a faction, and earn
estly exhoi ts them to remain true to their
emperor and to the law.
Intelligence has been received t'loiu Berlin
lo the 23.1. On the 23d tho L'eosin question
was debated in the Assembly, and was de
cided, after a stormy discussion, in favor of
tlie non-s!paration of tho Grand Duchy into;
a Polish and a German, part and consentient- i
ly in favor of its non-aunextiou to th.v G
man Confederal ion, by a majority of 7.
The coininanderof the IiurtdeT Guard has
issued another proclamation, in which In
states lli.it he entertains n tirm confidence that
a iceoneiliatiou between the Bmuher Guard
and the workmen will be effected soon, ami
that he trusts no furtlioili.v.iiihimces. of mdi-

addressed to the workmen in this liroc'ama

Ilia', nevertheless, strong uppreh'-iisious are
entertained that another collision b'-tween i
iho Burgher Guard and the workmen might ,
ensue. Those apprehension are by no means ;
unfounded, and it is considered that much
excitement still prevails among t!i work- '
Tcron. The Chamber of Deoaii-s :U Te- i
rin, decided on the 21st iu favor of a motion j
for iho prolongation of the ;:rmis'ico with
Austria. I he Central German Power h
as, it i
is said, proposed the followiu

of the IIiiIi'rii question : 'I'll it Lombardy

time, form part of the Italian Diet, which tho I
King of Sardinia wishes lo create, iu eonjunc- j
tion w ith tho Porto and the Grand Duke of j

the same relation to Italy that tho Duchy of
Luxembourg holds to Germany.
