The Farewell of Joan of Aro•
Farewell, ye hills, ye pastures much beloved,
Ye calm, familiar vnies, farewell I No more
Joanne 'II wander o'er your verdant turf!
Joanna says to you. for at e farewell I
Ye dewy meads that I lava watered oft,
Ye tender trees, transplanted by my hand,
In senapiternal freshness joyous bloom,
0' Farewell ye grottos, and ye cooling springs!
Thou echo, pleasing voice of this sweet vale,
Whiell oft has given answer to my song,
Joanna goes, and never more returns.
Ye places of my quiet, peaceful joys
I leave you all for ever more behind I
Ye lambs, disperse yourselves upon the heath ;
A thick without a shepherd now are you,
For I am called to tend another flock
On yonder 111,4, dame roes field of rtrife.
So is the spirit's rail that comes to me. ,

And nrdsred llim be•nre proud Pharaoh
To stand, and plead his chosen peop'e's cause;

In rough, hard metal thou shalt lace thy limbs
With steel protect thy young and tender breast ;
No love of man ran ever touch thy heart
With sinful flames of empty, earthly lost;
The bridal wrath shall ne'er adorn thy locks:

Yet thee with martial story' I'll adorn,

And, putting the child carefully in the

culls flying out under her broad hat, and
both hands hidden in the hair of Light

Where has she gone?" I asked.

Milton paced up and down the piazza,
watching for the return of the Arabian and
his little rider. The morning's clouds gath
ered thickly, and drenching rain commenced
to fall. Everything was thoroughly saturat
ed, before, far down the road, he saw the
black speck. Larger and larger it grew, till
the brave Purse swept up the avenue to de
posit its half-drowned rider.

The call brought the stable boy, who, heed
less of the rain, as his young, mistress stood
patiently to hear lire directions for her pets

heed Milton's entreaties to come in. The

Midnight Charge of the Mule Bri-
A correspondent with the Army of
the Cumberland writes as follows:
During the advance of Hooker's com
mand upon ehe enemy, near Lookout
i‘lountain, an incident occurred that is
worth rebtling, and one which I believe
has never been made public, notwith
standing the fact that it was at the time
of its occurrence a suliject of merriment
at the expense of the rebels. You will
remember that. Hooker Inured on Look
out Mountain very cautiously from the
west side While cmraged in the move
ment up the valley, owing. to sonic cause
unknown to toe, a stampede among the l
mules took place. It was in the dead of
night, when both armies were resting
from the fatigues of the previous day,
and the sentinel's tread was the only
sound that. disturbed the universal quiet.
Rushing from the wagons, to the nom-
her of about thirty, the mules made for
die enemy's lines like frightened sheep.
The drivers were awakened by the noise

of the animals through our' advanced
pickets. The enemy's pickets were not

the nice girl's kisses.

Those who have ever been recovered
from drowning or hanging say that, pre
vious to the advent of uneoisoiousness,
they have seen a panorama of their whole
previous existence, of, which not the
smallest incident, thought, or'feeling has
lust ; and it is thence inferred that all
human beings at the moment of dissolu
tion, experierce this awful resurrection
of the dead past. Yet that the pheno
mena do not invariably attend the act of
drowning, is manifest from the very in
teresting and detailed account left us by
Dr. Adam Clarke, in his "Autobiography,
of his narrow escape in the River Pan
when a boy." He states that his feeling
was that of intenes happiness and pla
cidity, combined with a g eneral impress
iou of a green color, such as fields orgar
dens, and that his first and only pain
was when he was taken , out of the Water,
and his lungs were once more inflat
ed with atmospheric air. But he may
not have reached the point at which the
memory is preternaturally excited. Ills

time seems to have very little to do with
the actual duration of time. The idea of
eternity, or the lapse of infinite ages, is
often experienced in the course of a dream
which can only have lasted a very short
period. This is especially the case with
the opium -eater, but it will occur even
with those who do not indulge in that per

A TRAVELLED CAT.—A wonderful instance
~f feline affection occufred a short time ago.
A person named Marsh Allen residing at
Willoughton, England, who is in a very del
ieate slate of lit-tilth, went to Hull to put
himself under medical treatment, leaving his
ear, which is under twelve months old, at
Willoughton. One day, after he had been
there some time, happening to go into the
back yard of the house at which he was stay
tug, her bserved a cat sitting on the outer
wall. He carelessly called "Pussy," when
the animal, to his great surprise, jumped
from the wall. rushed upon his shoulders and
laio his hosom, commenced licking his face,
and exhibit ing every other evidence of
-11,1)t and affection of which he was capable.
Ile at once perceived that it was his own cat,
which he had left safely at - Witloughton ; and
his astonishment at the startling fact may
be readily imagined On examining the an
imal he found that its claws were complete
ly worn off with walking, and that it present
ed other appearances of having undergone
great fatigue. flow it succeeded in crossing
the Humber, or indeed in performing the
journey (about fifty miles) at all, must now
remain a mystery. It may he mentioned,

race, that Allen was very fond of the animal,
and, in his sickness had been in the habit
of taking it to bed with him.
SOCIAL TATTLE —At a small evening
party an elderly lady mentioned a family
of the name of Homer, much respected in
a certain neighborhood. Somebody pres
ent, with the pleasantry adapted to small
evening parties, exclaimed : "Pray, mad
am, are they descended from great Hom
er ?" (In which the old lady replied, with
oreat emphasis : Oh, yes, sir; and not a
little proud are they of it, [ can assure
you ?'"chis reminds me of the French
abbe, who was introduced at a dinner par
ty to a gentleman of the name of Robin
son, celebrated for dressing in rather an
eccentric costume—a green coat, hunt

abbe thrice lifted his fork to his mouth,
and thrice laid it down, with an eager
stare of surprise, then suddenly burst out
with : "Excuse me, sir, are you the
