BY J. Q. WHITTIZR
Heap high the farmer's wintry board 1
Heap high the golden corn !
No richer gift has autumn poured
. From out her lavish horn ! .
Let other lands exulting, glean,
The apple from the pine,
The orange from its glossy green,
The cluster from the vine.
We better love the hardy gift '
Our rugged vales bestow,
To cheer us when the storm shall drift
Our harvest fields with snow.
Thro' the vales of grass, and meads of flowers,
Our ploughs their furrows made,
While on the hills the sun and showers '
Of changeful April played.
We dropped the seed o'er hill and plain,
Beneath the sun of May,
And frightened from our sprouting grain
The robber crows away.
All thro' the long bright days of June,
Its leaves grew bright and fair,
And waved in hot midsummer noon,
Its soft and yellow hair.
And now with Autumn's moonlit eyes,
Its harvest time has come,
We pluck away its frosted leaves,
And bear the treasure home.
There, richer than the fabled gifts,
Apollo showered of old,
Fair hands the broken grain shall sift,
And knead its meal of gold.
Let vapid idlers 101 l in silk,
Around the costly board ;
Give us the bowl of samp and milk, •
By homespun beauty poured.
Then shame on all the proud and vain,
Whose folly laughs to scorn
The blessings of our brirdy grain,
Our wealth of golden corn.
Let earth withhold her goodly root,
Let mildew blight the rye,
Give to the worm the orchard's fruit;
The wheat fields to the fly.
But let the good old crop adorn
. The hillsiour fathers trod ;
Still let ua for his golden corn
Send up our thanks to God.
Pauline was an only daughter adopted by
some worthy citizen of the Rue Stet,Honore
Paris, who, having brought her up to the,age '
of sixteen, had placed her in Via shop—a per
fume warehouse—to dispense his goods at the
counter. Women in France are almost univer
sally and practically heads of commercial estab
lishments. The master of the house, when-he
does not lounge away in a cafe, play billiards or
cards half the day, or walk about like
one living on his means, is contented to occupy
a retired and dignified position, attending, not
to sales, but to wholesale purchases. But such I
was not the case with M.,Boulard, the adopted
father of Pauline. Both he and his wife shared
the labors of the shop together, he keeping the
books while Pauline and Madame Boulard at
tended to the details. The young girl was very
pretty and very modest, and her presence con
tributed not a little to the success of the busi
ness. The good couple, having no children of
their own, had manifested their intention of
making Pauline their heiress, and this added to
the charm that hang over the perfumer's store.
Pauline had many lovers, a great many—as
young ladies who are pretty, modest, and virtu
ous are apt to have, especially when rich ; for,
although the world is not half so selfish and
wicked as certain personi fancy, yet a grain of
interested love Will always peep but among the
truest suitors. Two lovers were chiefly assidu
ous in their attentions—the one rich shopkeeper
Of the same street ; the other, a poor froUeur :
both were young, Wad tolerably good-looking,
and very devoted in their attachment, and it
would have been hard to say which was the
most deserving. But Monsieur Alexis Laparant
was rich and Sean Prevost was poor. It will be
readily understood that the parents of Pauline
would not have hesitated in their choice ; but
they know only of the affection. of Alexis ; that
of Jean was concealed even from himself. Alexis
came often to the house under one pretence or
another, and was always favorably received.
The Border& were highly flattered at this pre
ference ; Pauline liked his frank", open manners,
and always greeted him with a smile.
The fraeue—one who waxes and shines by ,
means of rubbing the wooden floors of room
—came to the house in the exercise-of his trade.
He always bowed low to Pauline, and esker her
how she was ; and even on her fete day had
brought a single rose, which was gratefully re
ceived. 'Jean was also a commissioner, and ran
on errands, and often came to the house to buy
perfumes, soap, &c., for his employers, who,
appreciating his honesty and desire for work,
fieely trusted him with purchases. How hap
pily Jean was if Pauline only served him ; and
how gentle and respectful was hid` tone, and
how little he concealed his happiness if she
gave him a good natured word. Pauline could
scarcely be blind to the open love of Alexis, or
the concealed affection of the poor frotteur ; but,'
however this may be, she said nothing and ap
peared to notice neither. But young Laparent
had spoken to old Boulard and he to his wife,
and his wife to the young - girl, but she, kissed
her adopted mother so affectionately; did said
so gently that she wished riot to leave home
that the worthy woman was silent, and put off
a little while any serious discussion of the
meanwhile, became sober and thought
ful, he dared not hope, be dared-not even think
of making an offer ; he a poor workman with
uncertain means of livelihood, and so far be
neath the position of her ho loved. Had she
been an unfriended orphan, without home, he
would.joyfully have offered his heart, and the
only fortune he had—his honest labor. While
thus depressed an event occurred which drove
Pauline completely. out of his thoughts.
One day he was sent for to wax the floors of
a house near the Palais Royal, the • apartments
of which were generally devoted - to the pleasure
parties.of the courtiers. Jean, who was well
known and trusted, was told to wax Ihe floor, of
every room then unoccupied. He obeyed; and
soon found • himself in a chamber of luxurious
appearance, surrounded by pictures which told
of rung love. and happiness. Jean had seen
them often before, but they had never affected
him so much, and, forgetting time, place and
his duties, he leant on the stick which held the
wax and feel into deep thought. Suddenly he
was startled by voices in the next room; a hor
rible sentence caught his ear, and justified his
listening. Pale and terrified, he hearkened to
every word, and moved not, for fear of being
He had discovered an awful and frightful
secret, and, he was a dead man if found in that
room, the-ill-joined wainscot of which allowed
everything in the next to be distinctly heard.
"What shall Ido r thought he to himself ;
"to-morrow is the fete•day of St. Louis, I have
no time to lose."
Jean left the room on tip-toe, and with the
utmost caution ; then, disoending the stairs,
feigneil to,l&ive for dinner. No sooner was he '
clear of the house than he made for the Prefec
ture .ofTolice, and entering the hotel, asked to
see the Lieutenant. The servants replied that
he could nc4 be seen. It was one o'clock and
the fashionable Paris dinner hour of that day—
novi six hours latter. Not a valet dare disturb
M de Rellisle from his meal ; but Jean insisted,
stormed, implored, and at last, as they seized
him by the shoulders to put him out cried, "Do
not drive me out. I must see Monsieur de Bel
lisle ; the King's life is in danger."
It was the eve of St. Louis, 1758, and the
King was Louie XV. The servants hesitated,
looked fit one another, and an agent of police,
struck by the inan's tone, made them pause.
" Go, repeat his words to Monsieur le Lieu
tenant," said he, "'and show this person into
his private cabinet."
Jean, recovering his breath, followed his
guide; and soon found himself face to face with
the magistrate, whese mien was severe and in
quisitive, and even incredulous. He bade the
froueut: tit clown, and asked his' business in a
somewhat petulant tone—the tone of a man
disturbed in the midst of his dinner.
"I come here," said Jean, firmly, "to in
form you of a plot against the King's life."
"I ain informed of such plots every day,"
replied the Perfect, who was used to pretended
denunciations from persons aiming at exciting
attvatiou and getting money. "But let me
hear the details." •
Jean related all that the reader knows, added
that the attempt on the King's life was to be
made that/evening at the reception on the oc
casion of the eve of the fete of St. Louis, when
it was mina to present the monarch with bo
quets of flowers. One of these was to contain a
poison eo subtile that the King, on smelling it,
would fall as if struck with apoplexy. Bellisle
looked at Jean. His mein was agitated; he was
' profoundly moved. His handsome and honest
features were excited as if with deep indigna
tion ; the pallor of horror was on his counte
nance. But the Prefect of Police, remembering
the pretended revelationa of La 'Pude and oth
ers, was still not wholly convinced.
"Are you sure," said he to Jean, "that yon
have heard what you tell me ? Be careful. If
you have done this from mere motives of cupi
dity, and invented a fable, you will pay dearly
for it ; the Beadle for

It was a very short time afterwards, when M.
de Bellisle and Jean Prevost entered the Palace
of Versailles by the stairs of Mil de &out; and
arrived secretly at the King's private apart.
menta. Every precaution was taken to conceal
the presence of the Minister of Police from the
courtiers, as thus the conspirators might guess
the discovery of their atrocious plot.
Louis, received the Lieutenant, and had with
him a long and secret interview. In fact, they
parted only when at eight o'clock the monarch
went into the Hall of Treaties to receive the
respectful homage of all the. foreign embassa
dora and courtiers, who on this occasion were
all received in state. The Lieutenant of Police
joined Jean Provost, guarded in a private
chamber by two exempts, and sat down. to a
hurried meal, in which he invited the frotteur to
join him without ceremony.
Meanwhile Louis X.V. had entered the Hall
of Treaties, and seated himself upon his throne
at the end of the apartment. Before him was
a magnificent round mosaic table, given to
Louis le Grand by the Republic of Venice, and
which was now destined to receive the splendid
and rare_ bouquets offered on this occasion by
the royal family, the grand officers of the house
hold, and the members of the diplomatic corps
to the King. The crowd was gay and gorgeous.
Every variety of costume—rich, bright and re
splendent—shone beneath the blaze of light,
which showed off the brilliancy of the diamonds
on the women. The King, who, despite his
frivolty, had great courage, not a fund of good
sense, which, with other education, would have
made him a different man, was by no means
moved, but smiled graciously Madame de Pom
padour, and caressed, his favorite spaniel, which
sat upon a stool at her feet. •
The ceremony commenced. The King, as
was.tfie custom, took the briquets one by one,
thanking every giver by some sprightly word.
Pretending to play , with the *tole', and to re
press its indiscreet caresses, he placed every
bunch of flowers near the spaniel' a nose, and
then laid it down on the mosaic table. Madame
de Pompadour laughed, but hid her daughter
with her fan.
"If they feel hurt !" said she, in a whisper.
"It is your spaniel, Countess," replied the
The foreign ministers had the precedence, and
had presented all their boquets. The members
of the royal family came next. The King took
the boquets from the hands of the nearest of the
blood royal; who, afterwards, stepped back bow
ing. He held the flowers to spaniel's nose; the
poor brute sniffed it, reeled, and fell dead !
Madame de Pompadour turned pale and would
have shrieked, but the King had warned her by

The rebel batteries commanded from the west
side of the river the road on the east side used
':by General lEkslrecran's supply trains trom Ka
nawha Falls, a mile and a half below the junc
tion of the Gauley and New rivers, to General
ilosecrrues headquarters, at Tompkin's farm, on
the New river, five miles above the Junction.
The supply trains of our army were therefore
discontinued during the day, and only ran dur
ing the night.
The rebels had three batteries of two guns
each. One opposite Tompkins Farm ; one op
posite the month of the Gauley, and one oppo
site Kanawha falls—the latter being the most
dangerous. Their firing was sharp on Monday
morning, but very slow during the afternoon,
and it was supposed that the rebels were short
l of ammunition. Our artillery replied and si
lenced the battery opposite the mouth of the
Gkauley. Two of our men and several horses
were wounded by shells on Monday morning.
Nothing definite was known of the strength
of the rebels, but their operations indicate des
peration or great confidence.
On Monday evening General Benham's bri
gade was two miles below Gauley, and it is
believed they crossed the river during the night.
A steamboat had been detained at that point
for the purpose of affording transportation across
The troops were ordered to prepare four days'
rations and to be ready to move.
Gen. Rosecrans has just received a battery of
ten Parrott guns, ten-poundera. The troops
were confident that they could cross the river
and, bag the entrap, but some expressed fears
that such a movement had been calculated for
and desired by the enemy. The rebels have
possession of the elevation opposite the mouth
of the Qauley river, known as Cotton Rill,
Which is considerably higher than the ground
on our side.

EXTRAORDINARY SCARCITY OF LBKONS.—It is a
singular fact that during the autumn season,
when epidemic fevers are most prevalent, and
acidulated drinks are greatly needed by phyai
cians for their patients, suffering froth every
species of febrile disorder, it often occurs that
fruit of the acetic class should become very
scarce. This is eminently true at the present
time. Some three weeks ago a vessel arrived
at Philadelphia wich a cargo of lemons and
limes. The price at the time was considered
unusually high, viz : six dollars per box. Two
weeks later there was but ten boxes in the mar
ket. A gentleman purchased two of them at
seven dollars per box. Five boxes were sold
the next daylat ten dollars each. On the day
following a box was disposed of at twenty dol
lars, another at twenty-five, and the laist box of
lemons in the city was sold one day last week
at thirty dollars, or at about ten cents per
lemon, wholesale rates. The wholesale market
in Philadelphia was in the early part of this
week entirely cleaned out of this stock ; rind
single lemons have been sold in the city at fifty
cenfa a piece.
.fusions PHIOTOMENA.—There is a curious phe
nomena connected with the flowing wells on
OR Creek—the water ejected, without regard to
the temperature of the , weather, immediately
becomes ice on exposure to the atmosphere.
Pieces of ice as large as a hen's egg are fro.
