r i\louncisula.r listeningttor_the way.e's strange
And marking with a sad and moistened eye
The summer days sink down behind'the sea—
Sink down beneath the level brine; and fall
into, the Hades of forgotten things,--
A mighty longing stealeth o'erthe soul; .
As of a man who pineth to behold ~
''His idol in another land—if yet
Her heart be treasured for him--if her eyes
Have yet the old love in them. .E;ert so,
With passion strong as love and deep as death,
Yearneth the spirit after Wonderland.
Ah, happy, happy Land! The busy Soul
Calls pictures of tho half-shut eye
Thy shores of splendor. As a'fair blind girl
Who thinks the roses must - be beautiful,
But cannot see their beauty. Olden tones
Borne on the bosom of the breeze from far,—
Angels that came to the young heart in.dreams
And then like birds of passage flew away,—
Softens into a cloudy shape. The sails
Move eo a music of their own. Brave bark,
Speed well and bear us unto Wonderland!
Leave far behind thee the vext earth, 'where
• .rnen
Siend their dark days 'in weaving their own
And fraud and wrong are crowned kings,—and
' toil c;
"lath chains for hire,—and all creation groans,
Crying in its great bitterness to God,—
And Love can never speak the thing it feels,
Or save2the thing it loves—is succorless.
For if one say, "I love thee,"—what poor
They are! Whilst they are spoken, the be
loved ,
Travelog' as rtAloonted lamb the road of death,.
And sorrow latches the fair hair and pales
The tinted cheek. Not so in Wonderland?,„
There, larger natures sport themselves at ease
'Neigh kindlier suns Um tnurtitre fairer flower,s,
And richer harvests billow in the vales,
And-passionate kisses-fall-on-god-like brows
As summer rain. And never know they there
The passion that is desolation's prey—
The bitter tears begotten of farewells—
Endless renunciations when the heart
Loseth the all it lived for—vows forgot—
Cold lOoks—estranged voices—all
. the wp,m,
That poison earth's delight. For Love endurfi,
Nor fades nor changes in the Wonderland. -
—Alas! the rugged steersman at the wheel
Comes back again to vision: The hoarse sea
Speaketh from its great. heart of discontent,
And in the misty distance dies away -
The Wonderland !—'Tis past and gone. O Soul!
Whilst yet embodied thou didst summer there
God ,saw thee—led thee forth from thy green
And bade thee - know anothtr world—lesS fair,
Less calm. Ambition, knowledge, and desire
Drove from thee thy first worship. Live and
- - learn—
Believe and wiurrand it may be that Ile
Will guide thee back again, to Wonderland.
From the" Temple."
The Troubles of n Bad Conselenee..
Wtmar'Eß I go, where'er I turn,
Sorrow with me abides;
And-stealing-o'er-my-spirit. still,
A secret terror glides.
A deadly sound is in my ears
If to the field, I flee; •
And that dread, souml_pursueth still,
Beneath the shady tree.
Whatever house I enter in,
Mirth will no longer stay;
My presence casts a darkening shade,
Which makes men haste' away. '
And if my.fellotis' haunts I slfun,
Seeking a lonely place,
The owl shrieks out in witness to
My -lamentable case.
If to the river side I go,
And stand upon the brink,
._.Sudden thelvaters Ileeing--me,-
'Within their channels shrink:
The birci, upon the dry thorn sits,.
And not a word saith he.
The very pathway that I tread, -
Dries up tviien touched by me.
If ally. friend perchance do come,
In pity of my fate,
To comfort mo ; he straightway feels
Himself in wretched state.
-A corking care, a woo extrome,•-
Upon his heart will feed
And ho thenceforth, poor man,
Of comfort stands in need. ,
(gaitLi 31iiLicrifrtnti.
During my first course of .lectures I became
almii - Fder nt th - O of — aTivi - dow bilry,.tbd
happy mother of sifirace and a half daughters;
the quartette possessing so much of the di
titiguishinrcharaeteristics of the ""softer sex,
that I often caught myaolf Wondering in what
nook or corner of their, diminutive skulls they
kept the rest of the faculties.
Occupying the same room that I did, were
wo other students, from the. Berne Eeation of
-tho country as myself, and possessing pretty
nitiell'the same taste and peculiarities. One
thing certain we agreed in, and that was mile
'testntion of.all curiosity-stricken wothen ; for .
never were pOor-devils worse bothered by re
searches than we were. Not a pocket of any
garment left in our rooms could remain unex
amined, tier a letter remain On our tahlo: un- .
reati, nor scarcely a word of convernation-pnsa .
,without a soft;subdued breathing at the key",
hole telling,Us we were haves-dropped. .Mat
tors came at length to stich a pass, and so
thorough became the annoyance, that nothing
but the,' iliffieulty of . obtaining aultable neciiin
modatiops elsewhere, prevented us from bid
ding a tondqr adiou to the widow, and promis
ing to pay her our board . la soon cis .our
tone° arriied.
As the evil had to 'be endured for. awhile,
at long, invented and arranged a plan
for breaking her .of ,her insatiable euriesit t y' i
and making her, what she was hi other re
spects, p: good landlady. •
•Tho boarding hause:,3ray a large two-stOrY
frame, with a flight of steps on one• sib, ox-,
tendimi&in the:street to the' second story, sci
as to giyo adMittanoe to, the boarders without
the ,IT:lessity of opening the, front door or
turbing the family, when they .- came in late at
I night. It was very colt Weather, and our mess
were busily engaged: eveyy
_night -a late
hour at the dissecting looms, and it; during,
this necessary absence that' the widow made
,her researches and investigations. The slibiget
that sie were engaged upon Was , One . of -the
most hideous specimons,of buruatsit, that ,over
horrified the eight,- ;The-wretch-had - saved his
life from the hangman by dying the eve before
the day of execution, and We; by some process
or other, became the possessors of his body.—
Ire was so hideous that nothing but my devo
tion to anatomy, and time fineness of, the sub
ject, could reconcile me to the - dissCction ; and
even after working a week upon him, I never
oaught,a, , glimpse of his countenance but what'
I had the - nightmare in consequence. Ile was
one of the peculisr class called - AlbinOes, or
white negroes. Every feature was deforMed
or unnatural. It was with bins, or rather his
face, that we .determined to cure our landlady
of her prying propensities. .
It *as the work of a few minutes to slice
the face from the skull, and arrange it so, that
from auy_Toint of view it wold look korrilge.
Having procured a yard Of oil-cloth, we sewed
it to the'foce, and then rolled it easefully up;
tying this securely, we next enveloped it in n
number of wrappers, fastening each separate-.
ly, so thither curiosity would ,be excited, to
the utmost-degree before the pang° could be
completely opened. At the. usual hour we
returned home, carrying our extra face alinig;
not, however, without many a shudder. „
Upon entering our room, we taw that the
Spoiler had been there, although she had en
deavored to leavO things as near the condition
she found them in, ns possible'.
With.a hearty malediction upon all milieu
women, ive ate our cold snack, which the kind
hearted widow—for, despite of her being a
widow, she was really kind-hearted—always
had awaiting our return, and retired to Trost,
deterfitined that. the morrow's night should
bring all flags even.
. I endeavored to sleep, but that the hideous
face, which we had locked securely in it trunk,
kept staring at me through its many envelopes
—and when the cold winter's sun shone in at
the casement, it found me still awake. Ner
.vous arid irritated, I descended to . breakfast ;
and nothing but he contemplation of my com
ing revenge. prevented mo from treating the
widow with positive impoliteness, Biess her
not-despairing-of-marrying-again spirit! who
could keep angry with he •? Such a sweet
smile of ineffable goodness and spiritual inno
cence rested on her countenance, that I almost
relented of my purpose; .but my love-'letters
read, my duns Made' etident, my poetry criti
cised by eyes to which Love would not rend
its blindness to. make Perfect ; and then--zsho
was \t widow
MS , heart, at this. last reflection, becanio im
mediately barred to the softening influences of.
forgiveness, and I determined inall hostility to
fate her. :1, • .
The lectures that clay, ns far (as we were
concerned, fell upon listlesS ears,•for we were
thinking too much of what the night was. to
.bring forth. to pay rov‘A I.ttention_to:_tllcan.4,
The day nt last came to a close. It had been
snowing all the evening, and ht supper we
complained bitterly how-disagreeable it would
be walking to the college, and working that
night, and wished that wo were not dissecting,
so that we might stay at home and answer the
lettere we Ithd received from home that day.--
" Business could not be neglected for- the
weather," was our conclusion expressed-to the
widow; so after supper wo donned our dissect
ing clothes, and putting the package for the
widow in a coat pocket, hung it up in a prom
inent place, so that it could be found readily.
Telling the family that we would not be ,bacic
until late, end making ns much noise as possi
-ble with-our-feet i -so as-to assure her-we were
going, we left the house as if for the college.
We went no further, however, than to tile
nearest coffee-house, where by the time we
had smoked a segar, wojudgedsutltoient time
had elapsed for the widow- to connnence re:
Searches. -
Returning to the boarding house, wo pilled
off our boots, and noiselessly ascended the out
side steps, the door at the head of which . wg
had left open: There I- kits• a short passage
leading from it to the door of our room, which
we had left closed, but now perceived to be a
jar. • Silently as the doctor speaking of the
patients ho has lost, we approached it, and on
peeping in, to our gratification we found eve
ry thing working as wo Lad desired, Zvi_
dew had got the package out, and was oceupi-.
od in viewing it attentively from all sides, stu
dying.the character of the knots of 'the liga
tures embirioing it, so she could restore every
thing to its original condition; when het curl
- ositrwas-satisfied as - to its -- contents, - ' - lfieving"
impressed its shape and the peculiarity of tie
well upon her mind, she proceeded to take- off
the first cover, which was soon done, when a
similar envelop mother eye; this.after under
going the same scrutiny was'removed, when
yet anothermet her gaze; and still the kernel
was encroached ; some six or eight were taken
otf,cand at length , she came-to the laPt,—the pit
skin. Poor old lady I she has long been whir()
the curiosity of life never penetrates; and tlie
grandest and most awful mystery of our no l i
tore is revealed; yet I sec her noiv, as the last
envelop of the package was reached, and: hen
a gleam .of satisfaction shot like nn orysipela
tious blush over hernnkious &co, as 'she saw
thc , consuthmation of her long 'expecianny ap
prop hang. Thi3ro she stood;' with spectneles
blind so deeply 'neath her aintoSt to

in the hour of curiosity. Holding 'the' package

your pen, , and gazing up at the coiling, will .
generally produce all the ideas required in
suclr occasional poems. To attain facility,
however, you must keep your wits in practice
by continually making 'verses on all kinds of
trivial subjects; for instance, a sonnet "on
Lisette's' now .straw bonnet,?' or a canzonet
"on Durandula's bodice." "Cordclia's night
cap" may suggest materials enough to fill' a
long ode: Acquire the art of producing rhymes
for the motet uncouth words, and if you aro

However insignificant your verses may be,
never publish them without some-high-sound
ing title; such as "Parnassian Bridal-Torches."
Never mind about tbe sense of it, if it is Only
porepous enough, Though the subject of your
poem may be trivial, take care to wrik a grand
intrqduotion, invoking Apollo and all the nine
Muses to come to your assistance in a great
work. This style of building a grand entrance
toton little house is very good4n poetry. When
you make a beginning never care about the .
end: they will match together in. some way
no doubt. Expletives are too much despised
in - peso tits Fill you& verses with them,
as - they - aremery cheap. 'Employ also as many
allusions to pagan mythology as you can find;
for thus you may fill your 'pages Vith numer
ous explanatory notes about ancient deities,
Mars, Vulcan, and Venus, which 'need not be
very correct, as few readers trouble themselves
about such matters. Use two or three words
instead of ono whenever you can; for instance,
style nature "our - productive mother," and
call your dog "the barking quadruped." Nev

Signor Blitz is well known throughout
this country as the prince of mtigicians and
ventriloquists,who can /locus posits nny thifig
into other places in the -most• inexplicable
and mysterioud manner. while his audience
are wrapt in astenishinent at his astounding
(eats. He can also throw his voice into any
spot within hearing distance, and can imitate
the ladguago of animals \ themselves. He is
noted for his tact and self possession, and is
usually equal to any emergency hi which he
finds himself placed.
4Ve - never knewthetSignor sat back' arid
completely 'flabbergasted' but once,and then
it happened in a country town in Connecti•
cut on this wise. The Signor, contrary to
his,usual custom, had consented to stop at
this town on his route through New England
by the aseutance of.a ceffain person that it
would pay - him, well for the 'trouble, as a.
musements were 'scarce, and the 'free list'
small. He accordingly gave a short series
of performances inn large hall in the princi
pal tavern in the place, which was a large
old fashioned structure. The hall was crow
ded to its fullest on each of the evenings,
end everything worked to admiration, until
the lastevenins,-when a mischevious board:
erconceived the idea of varying the sMter ,
tainment slightly.
One of the most popular things in the
whole entertainment was the ventriloquism,
when the Signor held an animated converse
tion with 'Peter,' in the chimney, which Was
situated on one side of the ball, near the
middle. The aforesaid boarder was aware
that the 'smoke house' in which his daily
slice cif bacon was cured, was situated over
the helloed of an aperture in the main chim
._neythat_gave-aceess_to_the -flue -which--led
from•pleee of the-hall-room.
I-Te accordingly captured a large cat, and
ensconced himself in the - smoke•house, just
before the feat of ventriloquism was to begin.
When the Signor commenced calling for 'Pe
ter,' he allowed him to converse with the
imaginery interlocutor for a short - time
for a short time without but
wh'en Blitz requested Teter' to come clown
near the fire for a little. familiar chat,
the hoarder's'voice replied that he would see
him in the place of punishment first ‘tind
they, he wouldn't.'
Blitz was hardly able to conceal his as
tonishMent at the reply, but the audience
ihougbit he magician was outdoing himself,aud
cheered him tremendously. -
'Peter, come down, will you?'
,'See ye in my home first ! Nor my name
ain't Peter 'neither. He keeitt the key of
other place.
'What isf:your name?'
q am Old .§..-drdtch.'
Blitz scratched his head, and the audience
thought he was getting, rattier profane.—
Blitz knew that he was sold but could think
of nothing better than to continue the trick .
'Are you Old Scratch, the fire king; ?
would be happy to sees Old gciatCh
here.' .
'Well; are you ready/'
This word had scarcely reached the chim—
ney when the. big torn' Cat came Aumbling
and scratching down, filling the magician's
ears with soot, and his audience with inex
tinguishable' laukliter. . •
locefoce matches, and he disappear 4 with a
bound. Blitz was utterly discomfitted and
was compelled 'to 'close the, performance
without•finishin; his lust act: Yankee Wade.
