I aometirne have thought in my lonelieat hour.
That lie on my heart, like the dew on the flower,
Of a ramble I took one bright afternoon,
When my heatt waa aa light a bloatom in June:
The green earth w moiaf with the late fallen
The breetc fluttered down and blew Open tbe

While a aingle white cloud to it haven of rett,
On the white wing of peae floated olTin the we at

That scattered the raiu drop and diirpled the
Far upon the blue ky, a fair Rainbow unrolled
It oft tinted pinion of purple and gold,
Twa born in a tnomrnt, yet, quick a it birth,
It had stretched to the uttermost part ol tbe
. earth,
And fair aa an Xngel it floated all free,
With a wing on the earth and wing on tbe era.
How calm waa the ocein! bow gentle it a well!
Like woman' soft bocoin it roe and it fell,
While it light aparkling wavea, atealing laugh
iagly o'er.
When they saw th fair Rainbow, knelt down ou
tbe chore.
No tweet hymn aacended, no anurmar of prayer,
Yet I felt that the ipirit of worship was there.
And bent my your.g head in derotion and love,
'Neath tbe form of the Angel, that floated above.
How wide waethe sweep of it beautiful wing,
How boundless its circle, bow radiant its ring.
If I looked on the sky, 'twas suspended in air,
If I looked on the ocean, the rainbow was there ;
Thus forming a circle as brilliant and whole,
As the thought of the rainbow that circled my
Like the wing of the Deity, calmly unfurled,
If bent from the cloud and encircled tbe world.
Tere are moment, I think, whea the spirit re
ceives, ,
Whole volumes of thought en it unwritten
When tbe told of '.be heart in moment enclose,
Like the ir.ermoU leavea from the hert of a roae;
And thu when the rainbow had paaaed from th

It left my full soul lik tbe wing of a dove.
All fluttering with pleasure, and fluttering with

But shorten the link of life's mystical chain ;

decked with colore. The Weser fishermen.
scattered along the line of the river, and even
the stolid boor, eonetantly drugging to keep o-

every village the whole population lined the
bank, u mined to ihe noify welcome of a hurrah,
but with helming eyee expressing the deep fee
ing ol their heart, at thia opening of direct
steam communication with America. It wse,
in truth, the opening of a day of promise. A

prospect of near connections separated by an

they were brought in from their rambles, and.
with Burgomaster Smidt leading the way, con

One, in a fit of enthusiasm, wrote the Wash

Ilobbie responded, and had the advantage of
hiving aruund him a party who understood and
pprecUted the peculiarly feliailou chrctcr
of hi reply. After dinner Ihe company again
scattered. The ball room wa a favorite gtho

playing Washington' March, they were escor
