The Peace of Europe.
AY .1. G. WHITTIER,
" Great peace in Europe ! Order reigns
From Tiber's hills to Danube's plains !"
So say her kings and Priests; so say
The lying prophets of our day.
Go lay to earth a listening ear ;
The tramp of measured marches hear,
The rolling of the cannon's wheel,
The shottcd musket's murderous peal,
The night alarm, the sentry's call,
The quick cared spy in hut and ball,
From Polar sea to tropic fen,
The dying groans of exiled men,
The bolted cell, the galley's chains,
The scaffold smoking with its stains.
Order—the hush of brooding slaves !
Peace—in the dungeon-vaults and graves !
Oh Fisher! with thy world-wide net
And snares in every water set,
Whose fabled keys of heaven and hell
Bolt hard the patriot's prison cell,
AtiA open wide the banquet hall
Where kings and priests had carnival !
Weak vassal tricked in royal guise,
Boy Kaiser with thy lip of lies;
Bnie gambler for Napoleon's crown,
Barnacle on his dead renown I
There, Bourbon, Neapolitan,
Crowned scandal, loathed of God and man;
And thou, fell spider of the North !
Stretching thy giant feelers forth,
Within whose web the freedom dies
Ofnations, eaten up like flies;
Speak, Prince and Kaiser, Priest and Czar,
If this be Peace, pray what is War 'I
While Angel of the Lord ! unmect
That soil accurs'd for thy pure feet
Never in Slavery's dtsert flows
the fountain of thy charmed repose,
No tyrant's band thy chaplet wares
(glace and of olive-leaves,
Nor with the wialted shalt thou dwell,
Thus stab the Eternal Crack;
Thy hoirM is with the pure and free,
Stern herald of thy better day,
BCtore thee, to prepare thy way,
The Baptist Shade of LibortY,
Cray scared, and hairy-robed, mutt pYOss
With bleeding feet the wilderness !
bti that Its Vei6e might piereb the ear
Of princes, trembling while they hear
A cry as of the Hebrew seer,

Kate, my sprightly niece; like most
young ladies of her age, has her own opin
ions on matters and things currently tran
spiring. She thinks independently, and
generally speaks what she thinks. Of
course, her knowledge of human nature is
not very deep; nor is she as wise in all her
conclusions as she is led to imagine. Ido
hot say this disparagingly, for Kato has
qUite as good sense as nine in ton who
have only numbered her years, which are
On one subject, Kate had, for a your or
two, been particularly decided in her ex
preisioni: The Valentine epidemic, which
has raged so violently, she considered a
social disease emphatically. It was no
healthy manifestation of right feelings, in
At last St. Valentine's day approached,
and the store windows and counters began
to be filled with emblematic, love missives
of all kinds, from the most costly, delicate
and refined, down to the cheapest coarsest,
and most vulgar, Kate exhibited more and
more strongly her antipathy to the custom
about to be honored.
"If any one were to send me a Valen
tino," Said she,'"l wtiUlU take it as a di
rect insult to my common sense."
“Oh, as for OM,” I replied, sportively,
"levers are not se silly as to address the
common sense of those whose favor they
desire to win."
"Whoever wine me," was her prompt
answer, "must appeal to that. At no oth
er pint *IIII be accessible."
Z.We shall see."
"And wo will son."
"I'll wager a new hat against a spring
bonnet," said I, "that you receive a Val
entine this year from a certain young man
named Never mind; don't blush so;
I won't name him."
"I would discard any one who insulted
me with a Valentine," replied Kate, indig
"Don't say that, for fear you will have
cause to repent the indiscretion."
"Yes, I do say it. No man of good
sense would stoop to such trifling."
"1 don't know, Kate. A little trifle,
now and then, is relished by the bust of
"That's rhyme, which does not always
go hand iu hand with reason."
"You'll grow wiser, Kate, as you grow
"lf that is the kind of wisdom age
brings, I'm sure 1 don't want it."
I answered with a laugh, for to be grave
fourteenth approached, Kate frequently
repeated her expressions of disgust at the
silly custom of sending Valentlhtt that had
become so popular, and deolaeed, over and
over again, that such a liberty with her,
be taken as a direct insult, and re
Among the visiting acquaintances of
Kate was a young man named Loring, for
whom, I could see, she had kinder feelings
than for any other male friend; but, either
in consequence of a natural reserve of
character, or because he was in doubt as
to Kate's sentiments regarding himself, ho
never seemed perfectly at case in her com
pany, though he sought it on every proper
occasion. I had him in my mind when I
suggested the reception of a Valentine
from a certain young man, and Kate un
derstood me perfectly.
Well, Valentine's day came round. At
dinner time, I came home as usual, and
almost the first word my wife said to me
"What do you think? Kate's received
"It's true. It came by the Dispatch
I'ost. I received it at the door, and tent
it up to her room."
"Have you seen her since?"
"Of course, she's particularly indig
"I don't know any thing about that.—
It was a handsome one I infer, from the
size and envelop; and had in it something
hard, which I took for jewelry—a breast
pin or a bracelet."
"Were do you think it came from'?"
"I've guessed young Loring," answered
my wife. . . . _
‘ ,, lf he has sent it ho has committed a
great mistake," I replied.
- "How so?" .
"You know Kate's antipathy to Valen
"Young ladies often talk a groat deal
without really knowing what they say, and
Kate is not altogether free from the fault,"
readily enough assented to this.—
When the boll rung for dinner, Kate came
down from her room. Her face was rath
er more sober than usual, and she did not
join in the conversation with her accus
tomed animation. She was first to retire
froin the table.
"1 don't think she is mortally offended,"
said I to my wife.
“No, not if I am skilled in mental indi
cations,” was replied.
During the afternoon, two or three more
love missives came; but not a word touch
ing their reception; or the feelings prod*.
ced thereby, was breathed by Kate. it
was plain, however, to one with even half
an eye, iat she was pleased at the mark
of attention, or, it might be, token of love.
Evening, instead of being passed as usual
with the family, was spent by Kate in her
On the next morning, at the breakfast
table, I mentioned the fact that a certain
number of Valentines had passed through
the post office on the day before. This
was in order to introduce the subject, and
call out some remark from Kate; but she
remained silent on the subject, though not
without indicating, by her heightened col
or and restless eye, that her thoughts were
"I rather think our young lady has
changed her opinions," said I, smiling, af
ter Kato had left the table.
"Circumstances alter cases you know,"
replied my wife, smiling in turn.
On the next evening, young Loring call
ed in. Kate was longer than usual in niaking
her appearance, and when she came into
the parlor, was dressed with more than or
dinary care. For the first time, I noticed
on her. wrist a new and beautiful bracelet.
She blushed, slightly; as she met Loring;
seemed a little embarrassed, but was soon
conversing with him in an animated style.
"Did you see that now bracelet!" asked
my wife, when wo, wore next along.
"Whore did it 66th6.ftOni."
"Didn't you say that in one of the Val:
entities she received there was something
hard, like a picco of jewelry'!"
"That bracelet, probably."
"No doubt of it."
“And moreover,” said I, "it is plain
that she believes the Valentino oamo from
Loringi for, at her first meeting with hint,
she wears it for the first time."
"Thus," remarked my wifo, "notifying
him that she receives the token kindly."
I laughed aloud, for I could not help it.
"Why do you laugh!" asked my wile,
"She was going to discard any um) who
insulted her with a Valentino!"
"That was idle talk. I've heard such
things said before.
Two or three evenings went by, and
Loring Caine again. Sines his former vis
it, the new bracelet had not been seen.—
Now it was worn again. As we knew the
tar..i I •
the more intimately we knew hint, wo saw
no impropriety in leaving the young couple
alnhe in the parlor. _
From that time, there was a marked
change in my neiee. She was less spright
ly and mere absent minded than mind.—
Next hbr tlitetite failed her, and she be
gan to grow thin and lrite her color— sure
signs of a heart disease. Meanwhile, Lo
ring was a, constant vialter; and whenever
he - came, the bracelet was displayed, evi
dently in token that she knew from whence
it came, and wished its full acceptance to
be understood. At last, I received a for
mal visit from the young man, and a for
mal offer for the hand of Kate. Of course,
I had no objections to urge. The mat
ter was, in my mind, already fully settled.
After that, the bracelet aforementioned
was always to he seen on the atm Of Kate.
One evening, it was about a month before
her wedding-day, as I • sat talking with
Kate; for whom my affection had always
been as tender as that of a father for his
child, I took her hand, and said, as
amined the bracolc.
"That is very beautiful."
"Yes, I have always admired it very
much," she replied, the color growing
warmer in her cheeks:
"A love-token ) I presume?"
And as I said this, I looked at her arch
ly. The hue of her cheeks became still
A Valentinel" I added.
The blood mounted to her temples.
"But it was not an ordinary Valentine.
It did not come from a trifler; find was lint
received as an insult. I thought you were
not the girl, Kate, to reject a sincere
Kato blushed still more ddoply;
"This little love-token, dear Kate, is for thee;
Accept it, and keep it,. and wear it for inc."
As I repeated this couplet, the young
girl started with surprise, and looked with
inquiring earnestness in my face.
"But I'm afraid, Kate," said I, with a
meaning smile, and a voice half-regretful
in its tone, "that you wore it less for the
real than for an imaginary giver."
She did not reply, but looked at me
more earnestly, while a sudden light ap
peared to break upon her mind.
"Dear uncle," said she at length, bend
ing towards me, •shad you seen this brace
let before you saw it on my arm?"
"Yes, love," was my tenderly spoken
reply; and I pressed her pure forehead
with my lips as I spoke.
"And you sent it?"
She seemed half breathless as she await
ed my reply.
She covered her face suddenly with her
hands and sat motionless for some mo
ments. In a little while, I saw a tear come
stealing through her fingers. My feelings
were touched, for I feared lest 1 had done
violence to hers by this little confession of
the truth. But, ere I had looked for com
posure of mind, she withdrew her hands
from her face, on which an affectionate
smile shone like a rainbow amid the part
ing drops of a summer shower, and said,
as she arose—
"Henceforth, I will wear it for the real
Bending to kiss me, she left a tear on
my cheek, and then glided from the room.
On her wedding night, Kate wore her
Valentine bracelet; and I am weak enough
to believe—if the sentiment may be called
a weakness—that she prized it even more
highly than if Loring himself had been the

he considers the emblem of an inundation
of evil and impiety, and refers to various
passages in Daniel, Isaiah, Jeremiah, & the
New Testament, for the purpose of show
ing that the encroachments of fallacious
reasoning and false reasoning and foist..
principles aro not only compared in the
scriptures to floods of waters, but are ac
tually called floods and the overflowing of
rivers. This, he argues, is tho' real im
port of the flood in the time of Noah.—
The perishing of tho millions by the del
uge, is to be understood, he says ? In a spir
itual sense, as the perishing of Souls by
the overwhelming influence of sin. In a
lecture upon the subject, delivered by Mr.
Stuart, he advances many plausible argu- . ,
ments in support of his theory. A literal
flood like that described by Moses, the re

place. Men of science reject as ail
dity the idea of a universal deluge having
occurred since the creation of man. Ge

The learned Dr. Bucklard, the orthordox
Dr. Hitchcock, and many others equally
worthy, have abandoned it, and none
stand out for the literal flood except a stub
