Oh, Om Spring bath less of brightness
Every year,
And the Snow a ghastlier whitonens
Every year;
Nor do Summer blossoms quicken,
Nor done autumn fruitage thicken
As it did—the season sicken
Every year.
It le growing cold and colder
Every year, -
And I feel that I am older
Every year;
And my limbs are lees elastic,
And my fancy not so plastic—
Yee, my habits grow monastic
Every yelir.
'Tie becoming bleak and bleaker
Every year,
And my hopes aro waxing weaker
Every year;
Care I now for merry dancing,
Or for eyes with passion glancing 7
Love in lens and lean entrancing
Every year.
Oh, the (lays that 2 have squandered
Every year,
And the friendships rudely sundered
Every year;
Of the ties that might here trailed me,
Until time to death resigned me,
My infirmities remind me
Every pear
Sad and sad to look before no
Every year,
With a heakier shadow o'er 11f3
V.very year;
To behold each bloeeom faded,
And to know we might have made It
6n immortal garland, Mal,lo
Round the year.
Ninny a spectral, beckoning finger,
Year by year,
Chides nio that so long I linger,
Year by year;
Every early comrade sleeping
In the Churchyard, whither, weeping

The Northern Florence, as its inhabitants
call, with some reason, the good city of Dres
den, was rapidly recovering from its heavy
share in the devastations of the French war.
It had,got back its court, and, what was bet
ter, its pictures and statues. Foreigners, with
time and money to spend, wore crowding in
to lounge in the galleries, to appear at ball
and opera, to drink the mineral waters man
ufactured in the Struve Garden, and to drive
about the pastoral hills and valleys which
cnviron that fairest city of the Elbe. The
hearts of the hotel-keepers sang for joy, and
their charges rose with the occasion. There
was a mighty influx of all the dealers in use
less and costly wares, and among thorn carne
Jacob Grotzel.
Jacob WAS a native of Bohemia, and arriv
ed from Prague with no great stock of capi
tal, hut he soon contrived to make business
in Dresden. Its beauty and fashion found
out that the choicest opals, with the rarest
cuttings and settings, were to bo had in his
shop. Lapidaries - knoW that ever - gem - has
a way of its own to be cut in—that is, if it
be cut to advantage—and of all gems the opal
is the most capricious and determined. To
bring out the rich but ever-changing hues
of that beautiful stone, to make it catch the
passing rays of light, and blend them with
its native lustre; in short, to do the opal full
justice requires a hand of no ordinary skill,
and Jacob was allowed to possess it even by
rival jewelers. His goldsmith's work was
nearly equal to his opal-cutting. His prices
were reasonable, and his credit-giving faith,
when the security was good, was considera
ble. Ladies, both of home and foreign growth,
displayed his workmanship and proclaimed
his merits, the court patronized him, and
Jacob beCame a notable:mitn'amorig
elers of Dresden. Some of them surmised
that ho had dealings with the Bohemian
jewelers, and got more and better opals then
the mine-owners dreamed of in his frequent
and quiet journeys to Prague. Others—but
they were men of the old school—suspected
that be had learned from the old Bohemian
gnomes his marvellous art of cutting ; and
there were those wife, being unwilling to give
Jacob all the credit, averred that most of his
workmanship, and half his success, was ow
ing to his trusty man and cousin, also called
Jacob Grotzel, but by way of distinguishing
him from his principal, Poor Jacob.
The cousins had commenced life together
in a. mountain village of Bohemia, they were
brothers' children, and said to be early play
mates ; had served their apprenticeship with
the sumo jeweler in-Prague; had been -true
companions in work and travel through most
of the-German towns, and finally settled as
master and man at Dresden. When tho
master and manship began, nobody could
say. Besides bearing the same name, and
being cousins-german, the two' Grotzela were
as like, ea, 0 other : as twin brothers. Botk .
Were spare, swarthrpoilemtans;
long Slavonic face and cleric hair and eyes of
their people, so notably distinguished, from
the fair locks and broad visage of Saxony.
Both were good workmen with precious
stones and metals ; equally good, it was de
clared by those who'knew them'best. Rich
Jaeob•stood erect, and talked in a high key;
Poor Jacoblada'stodping gait and a minnb-'
ling tone, and therein lay all the difference
that maneofild note between them. Yet the
ono Jacob-vas master, and the other man,
and they had heen so .fropc youth

tiations, touching accounts too long duo, Or
jewels difficult of disposal ; ho was sent on
the quiet journeys to Prague, when his chief
found it inconvenient to go ; and he was de;
puted to say and do everything which hap
pened to be disagreeable or beneath Rich
Jacob's dignity. But while the master of
the concern, together with his wife and three
daughters, appeared in great finery at public
ball and theatre, frequented the Struve Gar
den in holidays, or joined picnic parties to
the vale of Plauon, Poor Jacob remained
Sunday and week-day in the same suit of
coarse Silesian cloth, well worn, and not
particularly clean, toiled away in the soli
tary workshop, slept in the back attic, and
was allowed two grosehen a week to spend
on beer and tobacco.
Under these unique arrangements, the
house of Grotzel continued to prosper, get
ting ahead of all its contemporaries in the
billiant trade, cordially hated by them, but
thriving, nevertheless, till eithcr his evil ge
nius, or the prompter of that pride which
shall always have a fall, set Rich Jacob on
a design of eclipsing his rivals, and astonish
ing Dresden, by fabricating and exhibiting a
matchless parure, composed of opals and die
mom's, with suitable settings of the rarest
and most elaborate gold-work. He had got
possession, in his latter journeys to Prague,
of certain surpassing gems ; and it was Ja
cob's opinion that if properly worked up and
exhibited, they would find a purchaser in the
reigning king, as a royal wedding happened
to be on the tapis. Poor Jacob admired
and gloried iiithis scheme, as ho did in every
design of his mighty cousin. They had been
all successful hitherto andthetWo Jacobs
being determined that this should not fail
for skill, care, or expenditure, the one lent
all his eneigios in the work, the other all his
available capital, in due time the matchless
parure was completed. It did eclipse all
o:otzel's rivals, and astonish all Dresden,
when fully displayed to the best advantage
in the shop-window. Ladies came from far
and 'near, and brought the chief of their male
relations and the richest of their acquain-
Lances to see it. , The whole court came in
batches to admire its splendors. The royal
carriage drove slowly past, indeed almost
stopped at the window, and the Jacobs, Rich
and Poor, lived in hourly expectation Of a
command to repair with the treasure to the
palace. Green and graflnon of the highest
rank had asked its price, and the great Jew
banker's wife made private inquiries touch
ing the discount that would be allowed for
cash. But the palace made no sign. The
grafen and grafinen departed with looks of
resignation to the Inevitable; though many
a longing, lingering look the ladies cast be
hind ; the Jew banker's wife went home,
and never came back. In short, the parure
could not be sold without heavy loss under
three hundred thousand thalers (about fifty
thousand pounds Eng 'money,) and no
body seemed willing to have it at the price.
, 4 It will ruin me if I can't sell it," said Rich
Jacob in confidential talk with his cousin.
" All my capital and. all my credit are lock
ed up in that parurc, and how am I to go on
without then/ 7_ . The Jow banker would ad-
--r - -
vance on it,' r dare say ; but how am Ito gel
the precious thing out of his fine
"If you could wait awhile some of the
English milords or Russian princes who
come here to drink the waters might buy it,"
said Poor Jacob.
" So they might," said his superior, taking
heart and hope, as he generally did - from the
poor cousin's counsel. " But, Jacob, I would
rather have the Russians than the English
to deal with ; they know, better how to value
real jewel-work, and never make such hard
The fates appeared to have granted Rich
Jacob's wish, as they sometimes do, little to
men's advantage. On the following day
there arrived in his shop a Russian lady, the
Countess Mark6ff, who had recently come
meftft.a ft ft, ~,;ay ft .o.ftata...ft i ftt r - s ft, ft nu•
merous suite, and an extraordinary reputa
tion for wealth and liberality. Madame
Markoff was probably the only lady in the
Saxon capital who had not seen the parure.
Indisposition had confined her to her hotel,
some people said, becaUse the court had. not
received her with sufficient eclat. But the
fame of the Grotzol glory had reached her
ears, and, at the first sight Of it, Madame
declared herself charmed and enchanted.—
The two Jacobs expended their unique elo
quence in assuring her that the parure was
worthy of her magnificence, and would ac
cord admirably with her style of beauty.—
Madame Markolf was a large brown woman,
with dark red hair, and a Tartar face. They i-
Induced her to fit on the ornaments before
their most flatteribg mirror, pronounced the
effect perfect and irresistible and got a per
to bring the jewels to her hotel, that
. .
they might be some confidential
= friends she had - that same evening. Bich
Jacob evaded himself of the said pormisilon.

'ne 4 Cofibliidea - 114were the latter,-for their
praise of his pal' ilr C was as high as jeweler's

reasonable, and so did the countess. In
short, she was willing-to--take the jewels,
willing to pay the three hundred thousand
thalersfor them ; it weidd not ho ?Hissed out

Knitting himself and his three hundred thou
sand dialers' v:vrth. /3e wired for time to
arrange some pressing affairs, and take the
pattern of the parure, as he was sure of
another being ordered directly by the Queen
of Prussia.
The countess was considerate, and in no
haste. She suggested to Jacob, with a con
descending smile, the propriety of satisfying
himself regarding the real rank and resour
nes of a foreign customer proposing to make
such a purchase, and volunteered as her re
ferences half the bankers and ambassadors
of Europe. Jacob protested they were quite
unnecessary ; he was sure her ladyship was
all she appeared to be, and more ; but ho
noted down their addresses just for form's
sake, and went home with his opals and dia
monds, determined to set his cousin to work
on Madame Markoff s antecedents, for Jacob
was too experienced a man and a jeweler to
rely on the references people pleased to give
him. To work went his cousin, and to work
wont he. It was popularly said in Dresden
tifitil the two could have sifted out the grain
of wheat which the miser lost in the mine
bushels of chaff They inquired, as Was their
wont, quietly and carefully, far and near,
but every inquiry received the same answer.
Madame Markoff was all she represented
herself to be, the wife of a Russian count
and a field marshal, lately appointed a ili
tary governor of Moscow, and owner of one
of the best estates in Eastern Russia. There
was no doubt, no uncertainty; Jacob had
but to go and got paid for his parurc. He
waited on the countess the day before her
departure, concluded the bargain, received
her written promise that the three hundred
thousand thalers, together with his traveling
expenses, should bo paid as soon as her hus
band had seen the jewels, and a verbal ono
of influence and help with the passport offi
cers and postmasters. Jacob did not wish
to travel with her ladyship; he thought his
gems safer out of the reach of her very nu
merous and remarkably idle suite ; so
went home, made all preparation. ror his
journey, engaged an honest feliow known to
him as a sort of ..honibie courier—he had
served him more tiihn once on the Prague
.:..peditions—left his entire concern, as usual,
to Poor Jacob's charge, took an affectionate
leave of his family, and set forth in good
hope and high spirits for Moscow.
The telegraphic wires did not then stretch
over tho continent; but in duo time the
Grotzols got intelligence of Jacob's safe ar
rival, jewels and all. Count Markotf, who
had si;on the parure, was delighted with it,
made no objections to the price, and had
named the following day for the completion
of the purchase. Jacob was to call at the
governor's home at twelve o'clock precisely
to receive his money, deliver a receipt for
the same, together with Madame Markoff's
written promise, and leave the glory of his
shop to be admired by all Russia. The news
was magnificent; Jacob's wife and dneghtors
were thinking of festive ache. o, ~o oolob~nto
his good luck and his welcome home ; his
poor cousin was wondering whether or not
another parure would be attempted ; but
almost a month passed away, and the honest
couriercame_bacit alone and half distracted
with search and inquiry after Jacob Grotzel.
The courier's report was, that at the ap
pointed hour he and his master had carried
the jewels to the governor's house, which was
situated in the square of the Kremlin. As
became his humble station, he waited in the
outer hall, while Jacob, conducted by a ser
vant in splendid livery, passed to the gover
nor's office. The door, which had closed be
hind him, remained so for three hours, the
courier waiting with true German
At the end of that time the splendid servant,
as near as he could guess, inquired in good
Saxon what was his business there. The
ceurier explained that he was waiting for his
master, and hoped the latter would not be
couch longer detained ; but, to his amaze
tnenti U., num w.. 6 oenw and thAt. fiSter
had received his money, left the parure, and
gone about his business two hours before.
" Why and how • did he go and leave me

courier. The splendid servant did not know
why, but how the jeweler had gone he could
easily explain; It was, by a, side-door open
ing from the passage which led to the gov
ernor's office into a back street, by which, as
he remarked, one could get anywhere.
Unable to understand the drift of that
movement, the courier hastened to the inn
where Jacob and he had put up ; but no Ja.
cob was there; nor had been since he had loft
it for the governor's„,house. Still. More
amazed, the courier baste9ed back to inqi i iiro
more minutely into particulars. Tbo gover
nor's peoplo e were very civil, gave him every
information regarding the time and manlier
'of Jacob's, going. Count Miirkoff himself
appeared to sympathize with the poor man's
perplexity; and by way of assuring him
that all'ivas right, was kind enough to show,
the receipt for thren_bundred thousand.tha-.
lors, besides traveling expenses, written out
and duly signed in Jacob's .unmistakable
hand. Thocount also mentioned that he had
paid the money in bills of exchange on the
Dresden bank; but, ho added, rny' bank,
would. cash them ; mid after some inquiries'
touching Jacob's • domestie and mereantih;
concerns, his 'Excellency hinted,-though iii

their iefflelent guardianship, traveled back
fo IdescoW with the honest courier, recom
mended the search and inquiry, and never
got one additional glimpse of his cousin's
proceedings after he had signed the receipt
and passed out of the side-door. Count Mar
koff bestirred himself mightily in the mat
ter : his countess also showed the most sym
pathising consideration for the afflicted fam
ily and friends of the missing man. The
whore city was advertised ; particular and
Personal descriptions wore circulated in
brandy shops and market-places ; the police
investigated; two or three bad characters
were arrested on suspicion of knowing some
thing about the disappearance, but they had
to be released again, for nothing could be
proved or found out. In short, Jacob Grotz
el was lost to his family, his friends, and his
dreditors. Such was the general conclusion,
when the poor cousin, after exhausting time,
money, and patience, returned to Dresden
as wise as , he went.
The story created a groat sensation in the
Saxon capital, where the jeweler had flour
ished and worked so famously ; and as Ger
man society can split upon any subject, its
inhabitants wore soon divided into equally
balanced factions, one of which maintained
that Jacob (3rotzel had been mad.' away
with by Russian ruffians, and the other that
he was living in unparalleled style as a Ger
man nobleman at Astrakhan. The latter
hypothesis gained ground from the fact that
Grotzel's debts, when fairly reckoned up, as
they were now, swallowed up his entire stock
in trade, and also left some creditors lament
ing. His wife and daughters gave up Ja - dob
for dead when a year hacf passed alid there
was no intelligence of him, and retired to
their native Bohemia with broken prospects,
End very small means saved from the wreck
of the once flourishing concern. Their poor
relations received them kindly, however ; for
they themselves had been kind and liberal
in their prosperous days. The widow and
or, as they were considered, got wel
come and platc among thorn, roturned to the
humble labors of early times, before their
flitting to Dresden, had good sense or good
spirits enough not to fret too much over their
extraordinary loss, and made settlements as
good as could be expected. In process of
time the three daughters got married to hon
est and comfortable Bohemian . peasants.
The mother lived with each alternately, and
told the tale of her Jacob's wondrous work,
wealth and disappearance, regularly every
ChriStmas-evo to ha' assembled grandchil
But the poor cousin could not return to
Bohemia, could not rest in Dresden, nor any
where else. He hitd virtually lost his bend
with Rich Jacob. The lending cousin had
directed end thought for him so long, and
been so much his glory and -his guide from
childhooo upwards, that poor Jacob felt like
a dog without his master, and wandered from
workshop to workshop, and from town to
town, Unable lA, M) ta., a-. a b., va ta .. a
thmught by most people to be going crazy.
Ills craze was of the quiet sort, however.
Poor Jacob had always been a taciturn man;
and when the luckless search for his lost
leader was done, he never spoke of him, ex
cept when hard pressed by resolute question -
ors, ant then PoM:'..racob would look steadily
up and say, "Ile did not steal away, for he
was no villain ; and he is not dead, or I
should have seen him by this time." It was
beyond the power of clergy or layman to
reason Jacob out of that belief, and at length
people did - not attempt it. He was crazy,
but he was a good workman. Jewelers were
willing to employ and anxious to retain him
in all the towns he wandered through, and
poor Jacob settled a while with some of
them. But by and by, when something had
been earned and saved, for his habits con-
tinned careful and Bober as in his cousin's
time, the wandering bent would come over
him once more, and he would go in spite of
persuasion and advanced wages.
The years that Changed Dame Grotzers
once fine daughters to peasant matrons, and
brought grandohmax-....
the marvelous tale-telling on Christmas eve,
had passed in this manner with poor Jacob.
His stoup had grown considerable, and his
black hair perfectly gray. His craze was
not on the increase, and his workmanship
stll good, when ho arrived at the town of
Rotterdam for the third time in his contin
ual travels round Gerinay and its borderlands.
Thinking it too late to look .for work that
afternoon, and there being still smile tinders
in his pocket, Poor Jacdb stood on the quay
listlessly watching the passengers going on
board a steainer bound for London with i the
outgoing tide!' Mc had not stood thus' Many
minutes when he became aware that one Wile
seemed" also a careless spectator of the bust

upon blur, and was surveying him from
head to foot with mingled curiosity And
recognition. Poor Jacob had never seen
, the man before ; ho was . muolinbovohls'Own

testify, and Jacob guessed ho was an English
man. They looked at each other for a min

'then the stranger, as if determined to make
matters out, stepped up to Jacob and fjoid in

me a man exactly like you, who had been
there eleven years. They gave him no other
name but Number Ninety; it is a way they
have in all the penal places of Russia. But
the overseer said he called himself Jacob
Grotzel, was a German, and had a wonde'r
ful tale that he was guilty of no crime, but
had been kidnapped in the house of the gov- '
ernor-of Moscow, after, selling a set of valu
able jewels . , to his cohnte'eS. The money, for
which he had given a receipt, was taken from
him, and he was forwarded to Siberia the
same day. The overseer did not know whe
ther to believe his tale or not, it seemed so
improbable, and every convict wishes to be
thought innocent; but one thing weighed
with him—whatever the Russiim authorities
had done to frighten the German, he seemed
in mortal terror of letting any one hear his
story but the overseer alone."
Poor Jacob directly entered into the par
ticulars of his cousin's case, as far as he know
them ; and after maturely considering end
consulting over it, the Englishman advised
him to apply to the Saxon ambassador at St.
Petersburg, and also to the Saxon govern
ment, himself undertaking to mention the
fact to everybody of influence within his ac
quaintance in England or the Continent.
.Jacob left Rotterdam the same day for
Dresden, besieged the authorities there, made
the whole town acquainted with his discov
ery, and had in it two factions once more'tili -
the subject of his being sane or crazy. In
the midst of the rising ferment, however, he
got an intimation from the Foreign Office to
tecp quiet, and his cousin's case should be
inquired into. Jacob did keep quiet after his
mannerl--but. he - hattnted the officials - night
and day ; and, thanks to his persistence, the
case was inquired into, and found to be cor
rectly stated. Jacob Grotzel IVas in the lead
mine of Siberia, had been there for nearly
thirteen years, and was consigned to it by a
warrant from Count Markoff, formerly mil
itary governor of Moscow. The governor
has gone to his account five years before the
discovery. His countess was a resident in
Paris, and had married a French nobleman,
She wore the partere of opals and diamonds
on all great festive occasions; and got un
limited admiration for the same; but no pub
lic blame could be attached to such high
personages. .Jacob Grotzel was pardoned—
for losing his money. lie got a small sum
bestowed upon him, whether by the Russian
government or the Markoff family, was never
made clear. His cousin went to. Meet bin,
at Moscow, and the two made great haste
back to the Saxon frontier; there they got
an intimation that their future settlement
ought to be in Bohemia,- and Dresden must
be avoided in the course of their journey,
the Saxon court having Russian officials to
please. To Bohemia, accordingly, the cous
ins went. Rich Jacob, now poor enough,
settled down with his ancient dame, and
henceforth helped to finish the Christmas
eve tale to their increasing grand-children.
Poor Jacob lived with thorti

And howling dogs and spitting cats,
And humble-bees, and stinging goats,
And rattlesnakes, and Norway rats,
Peed on his liver, gnaw his heels,
And tickle every nerve that feels,
Whilo little demons pinch hie nose,
And weasels nibble at hie toes.
May every cup once filled with blies,
With fire and fury neeth and MPS,
And all the joy of life's dread waste
Provo Dead Sea apples; to his taste.
May pallid fear sit on his walls,
And Libby's ghosts tilt through hie halls .
May nightmares rob him of his rest,
Ins pillow ho a hornet's nest—
And MI his softest feather bed
With porcupines alive and dead.
May "graybacks" ' be his constant core,
And "hardtack" petrified his fare!
May toothache make his "dander rio,"
And twinge hie nerves with "rhounntiz."
May yellow-jackets build their nest
Within the lining of his vest ;
In short, may everything conspire
To till his mouth with coals of ire !
And when earth's every stinging dart
Has pierced the craven traitor's heart,
Consign hint to Cimmerian ponds
Anil bind him with Confederate bonds—
Whore dead men's skulls with ghastly grins
Remind the traitor of his sins,
Anil scorpions scrawl and adders hiss

Where alligators cleave the spheres
And crocodiles shod burning tears,
And woodpiles full of "niggers" rise
