EBENSBURG, PA., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1868.
The chill November wind is sighing
Across the meadows bare ;
And clouds of murky spray are flying
Through all the dreary air ; .
And leaves of many-colored hues
Descend with noiseless tread,
Or rustle with a wierd-like sound
On the branches overhead.
How 6ilent is the Woodland now !
No not? of song is heard
From robin, wren, or linnet gay,
Or joyous mocking bird ;
Rut the cheery voice of chanticleer,
Like some lone clarion shrill,
Rings through the dull monotony,
Afar o'er field and hill.
Across the barren stubble-field
The lowing cattle stalk,
Or move among the forest tree?,'
O'er many an ancient walk ;
The ploughman from his weary toil
Lifts oft his anxious eye
And marks again the gathering clouds
That sweep along the sky.
Rut darkness closes in the scene,
The hour is cold and gray,
The ploughman leaves the fallow gf61ind',
And homeward plods his way;
And at the rosy milkmaid's call
The eager cattle come,
And man and beast the comforts feer,
The blessings of a home.
THE FABLES0F HISTORY.
Tin: colossus or kiiodes.
3h Octave lolcpicrre, the learned Sec
retary of Location to the King of the Bel
gians, has jiublishoil a book entitled His
torical Difficulties ami Contested Events."
The llit delusion to which lie addresses
hiielf L the Colossus of Ithodes. . In the
eh 'Jiientary works in use in the English
and the Aniorican schools, the Colossus of
Iiliudes is rejire.-onted as a statue with
gigantic JiuiL, c ieli log resting on the
enormous rocLs which face the entrance to
the principal port of the Island of Hhodos,"'
and ships in full sail passed easily, it is
-viid, between its legs. This is the narra
tive of the historian lloiiin, of several
French dictionaries, and even of some en
cyclopedias. The real truth about the Co-lt.---i,
aeford'ng to Dr. Delepierre, is that
about tho year o)0, 15. O., the llhodiaus,
after success fully defending tLciuselves.
tigaiiir-t a year's iege, commanded Chares
to ri'cct :i memorial statue to the lionor of
their deity, and this statuo was erected on
an open space of ground near the great
harbor, wlitre its fragments were seen and
admired by travelers for many years after
its destruction. Toward the end of the
second century after Christ, the Colossus
was reconstructed under the Emperor
Ye.-puaao, but of smaller dimensions.
Tin: fable of the ancient statue, between
v- hoe gigantic limbs ships in full sail were
believed to have passed, originated appar
ently at the time of the Crusades, when
the inhabitants of Rhodes amused them
selves by relating to the new-coaiers all
sort, of incredible stories of their past
The romantic tale of BelWriu?, the con
queror of the Vandals, deprived of his
sight by the Emperor Justinian, and corn
jailed to beg his bread in the streets of
Coniranti;iop!e, was meofioucd by no con
temporary historian, but it has been re
peated aire after aire, and Marciontel's
novel propagated the fiction in every lan
guage of Europe. The real fact, as stated
by Cibbon. is that Belisarius was guarded
for a year as a prisoner in his own palace.
His innocence of the treasons of which he
had been suspected became then acknowl
edged, and his freedom and honors were
restored ; but death removed him within a
year of his liberatiou. He wae never
blind nor a beggar.
THE ALEXANDRIAN LIRIt.iRV.
Whether tho Alexandrian Library con
tained 54.000 volumes or 400.000, it is
tolerably certain that this immense collec
tion made by the Ptolemies was not, as i,-5
commonly supposed, destroyed by the
Arabs in the seventh century, but became
a pvey to the flames when Julius Cojsar,
who was beseiged in tbat part of Alexan
dria in which the museum stood, ordered
the fleet to be set on lire. One story has
it that the books were ordered to lie dis
tributed in the various buths at Alexan
dria, to bo burnt in the stoves, and that
they lasted six mouths but it would have
puzzled the Egyptians to heat baths with
parchment! Another fiction was that at
tho taking of Babylon the books were
thrown into tho river Euphrates, and the
number was so great that they formed a
bridge over which foot passengers and
horsemen went across.
Is it true that a woman succeeded in
deceiving her cotemporarie to the extent
of elevating herself to "the Pontifical
throne '! According to the widely-spread
crsion, a female Pope, disguised as a man,
was elected in the year and assumed
the name of John VllI, and subsequently
died in giving birth to a child. This ia
1 i clearly a legend, the most probable expla
" I nation of which is, that l'ope John XII,
amongst many concubines, had one named
Joan, who exercised such an empire over

him that for some time it might be eaid
it was she who governed. Ilia love for
her went so far that he. gave, her entire
cities, and despoiled the Church of St.
Peter of crosses and of golden, chalices ; in
order to lay them at her feet;' and we are
told that she died in childbed. ' ' '
ABELARD AND ELOlSA;
The history of the two lovers, Abelard
and Eloisa, Dr. Delepierre takes to be
true as a whole, but he contends that the
celebrated letters imputed to Eloisa, were
not written by her at all, and that tho
tomb in Pere la Chaise, at Paris,; is. alto
gether a modern construction. ' " :.

from generation to generation. The rev
olution which took pi .ice in Switzerland in
1407 gave rise to the legend of the Swiss
hero, and from that time to tho present
writers have continually endeavored to ex
pose its unsound basis, but the public,
equally pertinacious, have insisted on be
lieving in its truth. The stdfy was not
known until two centuries after the sup
posed event, and the chronicles of the
Middle Ages, so eager after extraordinary
facts and interesting news, are entirely
ignorant of it. Toll's lime tree in the
centre of the market place at Altdorf, and
his cross-bow preserved in the arsenal at
Zurich; are not more valid proofs than the
pieces of the true crass which aro exhib
ited in a thousand places.
PETRARCH AND LAURA.
Petrarch was a great poet and a great
politician, but he was not altogether the
Platonic lover some have represented him
to bo. With regard to Laura, all is doubt,
obscurity, and hypothesis. All traces left
of her were so faint, even in the century
in which she lived, that doubts were en
tertained of her existence. Baldelle, a
very partial commentator on Petrarch, is
obliged to confess that the poet was by no
iufeaus faithful to his divinity; but that
another whom he loved after a less ideal
fashion presented him with a daughter,
who afterwards became the consolation of
his old age. Laura has made far more
noise in the world during the past four or
five centuries than ehe ever did durlmr
her own time.
JOAN OF ARC

We are now asked to believe that Joait
of Arc was not burnt at lloucn, as is com
motily said, hutJtbat Rome Lannkjo'-v:jx
creature was 'sacrificed in her stead. ' This
is the weakest of all Dr. Dclepierre's posi
tions. He takes as his principal authori
ty some professed "discoveries by Pere
Zignier, according to which the contract
of marriage between one Itobert des Ar-
, chevalier, with the Maid of Orleans
ten discovered. When the victim
was led to the stake, a large mitre was
placed on her head, which concealed the
greater part of her face, and a huge frame
covered with insulting phrases was carried
before, and completely covered her person.
The generally received belief of Charles
V. is that, after his abdication, he retired
to a convent, adopted the habits of a
monk, and occupied himself solely with
the mechanism of clocks and watches, and
ot last personally rehearsed his own fune
ral. All this, says the Belgian savant, is
in fact nothing but a tissue of errors,
clearly disproved by existing authentic
documents. Charles V. did not live with
the monks j he never wore the habit of
the order, and he never ceased to wield
the imperial scepter de facto and to con
trol the affairs of the State. He had,
moreover, a residence built for himself,
detached from the convent, but communi
cating by passages with the cloister and
the church. Par from adopting an ap
pearance of poverty or limiting his atten
dants to twelve in number, his household
consisted of more than fifty individuals,
whose annual salaries amounted to some
.4,400 sterling of the present, day. . The
profusion of plate takori by the Emperor
to the monastery was employed generally
for the wards of the establishment, and for
his personal use. Courtiers were continu
ally arriving and departing, and the Ern-
leror was almost as mv.ch immersed
public aflairs in his retreat as he had been
while actually on the throne. Although
he had delegated tho official authority, he
retained the habit of command, and was
Emperor to the last.
OA LI LEO.
Dr. Dclapierre denies that Galileo ever
uttered the celebrated words. ''But still it
moves." No doubt, this protestation of
truth against falsehood may, at the cruel
crisis, when, at the age ci' seventy-seven,
he pronounced on his knees a form of re
cantation, have rushed from his heart to
his lips, but if these words had actually
been heard, his relapse would infallibly
have led him to the stake. It is denied
that he was subjected to torture at all.

cantation, hud was attended. dn his soli
tude bvhis two daughters from a convent.
One of them was taken from him by
death, but she was replaced by other af
fectionate relatives, who endeavored to
amuse and console the lonely captive.
His letters breathe a poetical melancholy,
a quiet irony, an overwhelming humility,
and an overpowering souse of weariness.
A BATCH Or FALLACIES.
l)u Par, in his 'Researches sur les
Amcricains," says that Montezuma sacri-
ficcd annually twenty thousand children
to the idols in the temples of Mexico. In
such assertions, the improbability and ex
aggeration are so self-evident that it is
needless to dwell upon them. Books tell
U3 that the Duke of Alba put to death by
the hands of the executioner, in the Low
Countries, eighteen thousand gentlemen,
while the fact is that scarcely two thous
and could have been collected there.

Influence of Guit
Buckle, in his History of Civilization in
England, ascribes the entire intellectual
progress of the pat five centuries to the
changes wrought in the organization of so
ciety by tho invention of gunpowder. He
Savs otl thi? subject :
"'Gunpowder, though a warlike contri
vance, has in its results been eminently
serviceable to the interests of peace. This
important invention is said to have been
made in the thirteenth century ; but was
not in common use until the fourteenth,
or even until the beginning of the fifteenth
century. Scarcely had it come into oper
ation when it worked a great change in
the whole scheme and practice of war.
Before this time, it was considered the
duty of nearly every citizen to he prepared
to enter the military service, for tho pur
pose cither of defending his own country
or attacking others. Standing armies
were entirely unknown ; and in their place
there existed a rude and barbarous mili
tia, always ready for battle, and always
nnwillin" to engajrc in those peaceful pur
suits winch were "then universally despi
sed. Nearly every man h
the military profession, as such, had no
existence; or, to spea
the whole of Europe composed
nun rrO!t arlllV.
in which all other prolcs-
sions were merged. Tb this the only ex
ception was the ecclesiastical profession ;
but even that was affected by the general
tendency, and it was not at all uncommon
to gee large bodies of troops led to the
field by bishops and abbots, to most of
whom the arts of war were in those days
perfectly familiar. At all events, between
these two professions men were necessarily
divided : the only avocations were war
I.' A W. mj I .
and theology ; and it you reiuseu io cuiei
tho church, you were
bound to serve m
the army. Ae .a natural consequence, e-crythitv-
oi' real importance was altogether
neglected. There were, indeed, many
priests and many warriors, mauy sermons
and many tattles. But, on the other
hand, there were neither trade, nor com-
nor iuauuiai,imio , - -
no literature ; the useful arts were
thpre. was no
entirely unknown; and even cue ma
rank of society were unacquainted, not
only with the most ordinary comforts but
with the commonest decencies of civilized
life. i i
"But as soon as gunpowder came into
uee, there was laid the foundation of a
great change. According to the old sys
tem, a man had only to possess Avhat he
generally inherited from his father, either
a sword or a bow. and he was ready cquip
r. ba fiphl. According to the new
system, new means were required, and the
iminii more costly and more
difficult. First, there was the fcuppty ot
fmnnowdcr : then there was the possesion
of muskets, which were expensive weap
ons and considered difficult to manage.
Then, too, there were other contrivances to
which gunpowder naturally gave rise, Fuch
as pistols, bombs, mortars, shells, mines,
creasing the complications of the militarv
art, increased the necessity of discipline
and practice; while at the same time, the
change that was being effected in the or
dinary weapons deprived tho majority of
men of the possibility of procuring them.
To suit these altered circumstances, a new
system was organized ; and it was found
advisable to train up bodies of men for
the sole purpose of war, and to separate
them as much as possible from those other
employments in which formerly all soldiers
were occasionally engaged. Thus it was
that there arose standing armies ; the first
of which were formed in the middle of the
fifteenth century, almost immediately after
gunpowder was generally known. Thus,
too, there, arose the custom of employing
mercenary troops, of which we find a few
earlier instances, though the practice was
not fully established until the latter part
of the fourteenth century.
"The importance of this movement was
soon seen, by the change it effected in the
classification of European society. The
regular troops being, from their discipline,
more serviceable against the enemy, and
ulso more immediately under the control
of the government , it naturally followed
that, as their meriLs because understood,
the old militia should fall into disrepute,
then be neglected, and then sensibly di
minish. At the same time, this diminu
tion in the number of undisciplined soldiers
deprived the country of a part of its war
like resources, and therefore made it nec
essary to pay more attention to the disci
plined ones, and to confine them more ex
clusively to their military duties. Thus
it was that a division was first broadly es
tablished between the soldier snd the civ
ilian ; and there aroc a separate military
profession, which consisting of a compara
tively small number of the total amount
of citizens, left the remainder to settle in
some other pursuit. In this way, immense
bodies of men were gradually weaned from
their old warlike habits, and being, as it
were, forced into civil life, their energies
became available for tho general purpose
of .society j and for the cultivation of those
arts of peace which had formerly been
neglected. The result ws, that the Eu
ropean ndud instead of being, as hereto-'
fore, solely occupied cither with war or
with theology, now struck out into a mid
dle path, and created those great branches
of knowledge to which modern civilization
owe? its origin- In
organization was mote marked ; the utility
of a division of labor became clearly re
cognized ; and as by this means knowledge
itself advanced, the authority of this mid
dle or intellectual class correspondingly
in created. Each addition to its power
h-.-sened the weight of the other two clas
ses, and checked those superstitious feel
ings and that love of war on which, in aji
early state of society, all enthusiasm is
concentrated. The e idencc of the growth
and diffusion of this intellectual principle
is so full and decisive, that it would be
......;;Mn b7 fnmliiniii" all the branches of
knowledge, to trace nearly the whole of
its consecutive steps. At present k - is
enough to say, that, taking a. general view,
this third or intellectual class, first display
ed au independent, though still a vague
activity, in the fourteenth and fifteenth
centuries ; that in the sixteenth century,
this activity assuming a distinct form,
showed itself in religious outbreaks ; that
in the seventeenth century, its energy, be
coming more practical, vn turned against
the abuses of government, and caused a
scries of rebellions, from which hardly any
part of Europe escaped ; and finally, that
in the eighteenth and nineteenth centur
ies, it has extended its aim to every de
partment of public and private life, diffus
ing education, teaching legislators, con
trolling kings, and above all, settling on a
sure foundation that supremacy of public
opinion, to which not only constitutional
princes, but even the most despotic sover
eigns, arc now rendered strictly amenable?."
